Another Closed Session.
Another secret sesslen vras held by the
State Tax Comml5sloners yesterday morn
ing at "which assessments of railroads were
considered. To-morrow and Tuesday the
board will listen to more pleas by corpo
ration attorneys represnting some of the
big railroads running through Indiana.
To-morrow Robert J. Carey will bo before
the board for the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa
Railroad. Charles J. Schleif will represent
the Bedford Stone. Railway Company; the
Monon will be represented by its presi
dent, W. H. McPocl; Frank B. Carpenter
will talk to the board on behalf of tho
Nickel-plate and the Chicago & Erie will
send W. O. Johnson.
Tuesday will also be given over to the
hearing of railroad attorneys. "William
M. Greene, vice president and general man
ager of the Ilaltimore & Ohio Southwestern,
and J. A. Norton, attorney for the Balti

Chicago Eastern Illinois will have as Its
representative XV. II. Lyford; the C, II.

ville S: Nashville. C. Bradford.
It is th- policy of railroad attorneys ap
pearing before the board to base their argu
ments that assessments should not be in
creased on two main facts: that since real
estate has appreciated in value as heavily
as railroad property, railroad property
Should not be assessed higher until the
tame action can be taken on all real es
tate. Since the board cannot raise the
assessment on general real estate until
next year the attorneys are practically a
unit in askinp that the present assessments
be carried over until that time. The sec
ond plea is that the railroads were as
sessed heavily during the hard times several
year ago and that no reduction was made
on their behalf at that time. They arpue
that it U the duty of the board to equalize
this action and to not increase the assess
ment this year because earnings have
mounted a little higher and because rail
road property has in general become more
valuable than it was at the time of general

STANDARD CONTRACT CHANGE
WILL DE MADE TO INCLUDE
FREIGHT ItATE PROVISION.
There Is Considerable Uncertainty
About Crom-Tnwn Linen Other
If the terminal plans offer enough ad
vantage to the city the Board of Public
Works will omit the provision for car tax
ation in all th9 interurban franchises.
President McGowan appeared before the
board yesterday morning and assured it
that he would have plans prepared at once
for the terminal system, and would also
have architect's plans for the station and
would submit them next week. Yesterday
he was prepared to go no further than he
had In the past as to details, but said if the
board omitted the tax and granted him a
franchise for a terminal company he would
make ready to clear the ground for the new
station within thirty days and to push work
on it. He said he already had plans of the
trackage system from his engineers, but
they might be revised considerably.
It Is likely the two ordinances approving
the contracts of the Shelbyvilla and Leb
anon lines will be withdrawn from the
Council and new contracts made. The city
13 likely to revise its standard contract,
which all the roads will be asked to sign,
in two particulars. The revision will ex
clude the car tax and include a new pro
vision regarding freight charges. The ship
pers have sought to put the Interurban
lines cn the basis of common carriers, and
they ask that a provision be Inserted that
the freight rates shall not be greater than
those of any other common carrier of
freight. This would fix a maximum cor
responding to the steam roads' official
classification rates. Conferences between
the shippers committee and Robert Geddes,
representing the Board of Trade committee,
and Lew Dietz, representing the Commer
cial Club committee, and Mr. McGowan
and Mr. McCulloch have resulted In an un
derstanding that this freight provision will
be accepted by the interurban roads. No
agreement of that nature has been reached,
but the shippers' committee feels that this
provision will win.
At yesterday's conference Mayor Book
waiter urged Mr. McGowan to state defi
nitely whether he will build cross-town
lines. Mr. McGowan said he did not be
lieve his contract required him to do this,
and that. In addition, he believed such lines
would be unprofitable. He said the men
who owned the Indianapolis Street-railway
Company were entering an uncertain thing
when they financed the terminal company,
and they might abandon this scheme if the
city exacted many things in addition.
After some further discussion the board,
said it would-not act finally on the car tax
proposition until there was something in
writing before it. It was suggested that
Mr. Winter, attorney for Mr. McGowan,
and City Attorney Joss together prepare
the contract through which Mr. ; McGowan
Is to build the terminal system and sta
tion. When that document is prepared and
submitted the board will concede the elim
ination of the car tax If its figures will
show that the city will be the gainer.
There was no meeting between Mr. Mc
Culloch and the shippers yesterday after
noon, as the meeting Friday night had ex
hausted the subject. Nothing further will
be done along this line until the revised
franchise Is offered by the board.
Councilman Meyer "Withdraws Signa
tare from Favornhle Report.
Councilman Meyer, Democrat, of the
Fourteenth ward, yesterday withdrew his
signature to the report of the committee
on contracts and franchises which ap
proves the franchise granted to the Mer
chants' Heat, Light and Tower Company
by the Board of Works. Mr. Meyer visited
Chairman Negley and asked permission to
withdraw his name. He gave no reason.
There is a belief that this franchise will
meet with some hostility to-morrow night
when before the Council, and some say
that its passage is doubtful. Chairman
Negley, of the committee, says he has
heard of considerable opposition to it. but
has not heard the reason for the opposition.
He says he feels sure that the administra
tion is giving its earnest support to the
The franchise is for a co-operative heat
ing plant, with electric power and light as
by-products, and the stockholders are the
members of the Merchants Association. It
requires the company to furnish all others
with heat and light, even though they are
not members nor stockholders. Officers of
the Merchants' Company express astonish
ment at the hostility to the franchise, one
of its chief purposes being to abate the
smoke nuisance in the downtown district.
A Celebration in Honor of Father
One week from to-day, on July 27, the
silver Jubilee of the Rev. Father Francis
Haase, pastor of the Church of the Sacred
Heart, will be celebrated. A reception will
be tendered him by the people of his parish
and he will be made the recipient of many
beautiful gifts. One of the presents will
be a silver chalice, studded with rubies,

OLD COLORED MAN DEAD.
Wesley Lewis Lived in n Shanty on
Ashland Avenue Thirty-Three Vears.
Wesley Lewis, a colored man eighty years
old. died on Thursday in a shanty at 101
Ashland avenue, where he had lived with
his wife for thirty-three years. He had no
medical attention, and the undertaker, Wil
lis, notified Coroner Brayton, who decided
that Lewis died of old age and could not
have been helped by a doctor.
Lewis was a slave at Maysville, Ky., and
after the civil war he came to this city. He
let his hair grow long, and in late years it
was white. He was Janitor at Allen Chapel,
a colored Methodist Church on Broadway,
for many years.
A PESTHOUSE DELIVERY
TWO WOMEN, SUFFERING WITH
SMALLPOX. MAKE ESCAPE.
Sanitarian nnehler Says They Will Re
Prosecuted If Fonnd May Have
Been Aided by Friends.
Sanitary Inspectors are seeking the
whereabouts of Mrs. Retta Reinking and
her sister, Grace Stephens. The search. is
assiduous and somewhat vengeful, for Mrs.
Reinking and Miss Stephens are the
heroines of a pesthouse deMvcry. There
have been Jail, workhouse and penitentiary
deliveries, but Indianapolis may now add
Its first pesthouse delivery. . The women
were sent to the pesihouse from 124 East
Maryland street Monday night. Friday
their cases assumed the pustulary condi
tion, the most dangerous period for the
disease and the most malignant for conta
gion. Friday night they were left in peace
and yesterday morning they were gone.
When their flight was discovered a
prompt effort was made by the City Hos
pital authorities to catch them. Investi
gation found a window screen and a bar
over It torn away. There is a belief that
the women were helped in their escape. All
day sanitary inspectors hunted for them
without success. The theory of the sani
tary force is that the women were taken
by friends to some other place until they
If this theory is not true the two women
are likely to spread the disease right and
left, as they left at a time when their
pustules were open. Late last night no re
port had reached the police that two wom
en showing the disease, as they could not
help showing it. had tried to purchase
food or rest. And this strengthens the the
ory' that they were aided in their flight.
"I am going to make every effort to find
these women." said City Sanitarian Buehler
last night. "If they are being secreted by
friends they and their friends are liable to
severe punishment. I will prosecute the
women for breaking quarantine, and their
friends, whoever they be, for not reporting
a smallpox case."

The summer playground connected "with
the Plymouth Neighborhood House at 905
Indiana avenue is especially attractive this
year. In adition to the croquet and ball
games, a tennis court has been put in this
season and also apparatus for pole vault

quoits. During the day and evening those
engaging in the pleasures afforded by this
well-regulated playground average about
fifty. Every amusement is conducted in an
orderly manner and with good nature.
Promptly at the sound of the curfew the
younger boys leave their games, and at
10 o'clock the electric light on the ground
is extinguished. Miss Sherrard, the head
resident at the Neighborhood House, is the

throughout the entire neighborhood. The
Neighborhood House is doing effectively
what Ruskln says should be aimed at in
education, arousing in the boy3 and girls
a love of what is good and pure and of
good report; instead of noisy, quarrelsome
sport, accompanied by bad language, the
contests are good-natured and the result
Is real enjoyment.
For six weeks, beginning with the first of
July, a vacation kindergarten, under the
care of the Free Kindergarten Society, is
being held here with an enrollment of about
sixty. Mothers' meetings are held regu

weather makes out-of-door life more at
tractive, yet there are always some who
like to spend a little time in in-door read

The Indiana-avenue Neighborhood House
is now in its fourth year, and those who
are acquainted with its workings feel that
it is solving tor that neighborhood the prob
lem so momentous to the life of cities vhe
problem of furnishing wholesome conditions
for the leisure hours of boys and youths,
as well as affording a center for happy
community life. Provision is made for the
girls alo, a certain time being sot apart
for their use of the playground and for
indoor story hours. Iist spring a cook
ing class for young working girls was or
ganized, and it will be continued next fall.
In the latter part of June a delightful lawn
party was given on the grounds, which was
attended by about two hundred of the
neighbors, and at which line music was
rendered as a free gift by professional mu
sicians in the neighborhood, as an expres
sion of their gratitude for the benefits of
the house. Some business men in the
neighborhood have recently evidenced their
appreciation of the value of the playground
by contributing towards defraying its ex
pense's. The Boys' and Girls' Clubs con
nected with the house are also assisting
regularly in a financial way.
such a work as this cannot be carried on
without large expense. On the evening of
July 23 a lawn fete for the benefit of the
Neighborhood House is to be held at the
residence of Dr. and Mrs. O. S. Runnels,

ATTENTION CALLED TO WHAT IN
DIANA DOES ALONG THIS LINE.
Statistics Gleaned from a Forthcom
ing Bulletin of the State Board
Amos W. Butler, secretary of the Board
of State Charities, has prepared a resume
of the work accomplished by the State in
stitutions that care for unfortunate hu
manity. Some of his generalizations and
statistics are taken from the quarterly bul
letin of his department just published, oth
ers are new. Secretary Butler has the fol
lowing to say:
"It is interesting to stop sometimes and
see what, the State of Indiana is doing for
unfortunate humanity. Few persons re
alize how great Is her work in the field of
public charities. The quarterly bulletin of
Charities and Correction, issued from the
office of the Board of State Charities, gives
in concise form much information on this
"It shows that there was an average of
S.CC3.60 persons cared for each day during
the six mcnths ending April "0, 12 in the
thirteen State Institutions. For their care
during this period the State expended JT'Jl.
212.S3. There is included in this $143,724.8
spent in the construction and furnishing of
new buildings and in extraordinary repairs.
Notwithstanding the higher cost of living,
this aggregate was $12,1-4. 3S less than was
spent for the same purpose during the cor
responding period of the vear before. The
cause of this, it should be stated, is that
last year there was included the legislative
appropriation to some of the institutions
to reimburse the maintenance fund of the
preceding year. That was made to the
Northern and Eastern Hospitals for the
Insane. School for Feeble-minded Youth,
State Prison and Reformatory.
"Each person dependent upon the State
for support in all these institutions cost the
mother State on an average ?01.f.5 for the
past half year. Not all the State's wards
cost the same, however. The 3,707 inmates
of the four insane hospitals cost on an
average of each, which includes all
expenses of maintenance, salaries of of
ficers and attendants, clothing and repairs
in short, every item of cost incurred by
the State to maintain the insane. Esti
mated on the same basis, each of the 5S6
inmates of the Soldiers' Home at Lafayette
cost $77.3S; of the 5IC soldiers' and sailors'
orphans. JS1.1D. The 317 pupils in the School
for the Deaf cost $132.71 each to maintain;
the 12! in the Institution for the Blind.
J174.4H eaxh, while for the 814 at the School
for the Feeble-minded, J70.S2, covered the
Individual cost. In the four correctional
institutions the per capita was $72.91, or
$13S.oos.5S for the 2,41 prisoners.
"Included in the above estimates are the
salaries and wages, amounting to $244.621.34,
paid to the 1.37S officers, attendants, teach
ers, guards, domestics and laborers whose
services are required in administering the
affairs of the State's charges. Deducting
all related expenses the bare cost of sub
sistence in these Institutions for the half
year varies from $31.51, the per capita In
the Institution for the Blind, to $16.10 in the
School for Feeble-minded Youth, the char
itable institutions averaging $27.3, or 15
cents per day, while the average of the cor
rectional Institutions was $10.1 1, or 11 cents
"Compared with the corresponding period
a year .ago the enrollment of three of the
Insane hospitals, the Soldiers' Home and
the School for Feeble-minded shows a large
increase. The populations of the School for
the Deaf, Eastern Hospital for the Insane
and the State Prison were slightly aug
mented, while at the other correctional in
stitutions, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Or
phans' Home and the School for the Blind
the attendance decreased. The most not
able increase was at the School for Feeble
minded 73.5 persons; the decrease at the
Reform School for Boys was 43.67.

GOITRE BETRAYED HIM.
RndM Stockton, Colored, Was nn As
"Bud" Stockton, a colored man, notable
only for a goitre and meanness, was ar
rested last night by Detectives Colbert and
Hauser. He assisted James Andrews and
Jessie Miller in holding up several men on
the West Side. When they held up George
Nichols, of Blake street, Nichols caught
the woman. Stockton came out of the dark
npd told Nichols he would shoot him If he
did not release the woman. Both got away.
Later the woman was seen In a saloon giv
ing Stockton $2.50 from a five-dollar bill she
had just had changed. Because of his
goitre Stockton was handicapped In hlgh
waymanship, for Nichols's description of
him was an easy one for the detectives to
trace him by.
Why They Left the Home.
George J. Lacy, an old soldier, and his
wife, who now live with their niece at 518
Wilkins street, have left the State Soldiers'
Home at Lafayette because. Lacy says, the
wife of Adjutant Kehler, of the home, re
quested him to turn over $12 of his quarter
ly pension to go toward a fund for the
burial expanses of the old people. The vet
eran and his wife say that their feelings
were hurt at the request and that It was
cruelty to remind them that they had not
long to live.
Gen. James R. Carnahan, who is a trus
tee of the home, says, however, that it is
a rule of the board that a part of the pen
sion money of the inmates shall be used
to bear funeral expenses. As to Lacy's
claim that a state law gives him the right
to have a $: funeral at the expense of the
State General Carnahan said that the law
Iicy alluded to does not apply to Inmates
of the home. It only applies, he said, to
residents of the township.

Man Stabbed in a Saloon.
In a fight in Zoffman's saloon, in West In
dianapolis, last night Charles Lloyd was
stabbed in the thigh, and when Blcyclemen
Morgan and Simon arrived he told them
that Charles Hermann had stabbed him.
The policemen could not find Hermann.
Dr. Foreman, of the City Dispensary,
dressed Lloyd's wound. II is sixty years
old and lives at 1101 Harding street. Her

Did Not Know Wife Wa Insane.
Ralph Minnich. a sign painter, living at
219 South New Jersey street, discovered yes
terday that his wife had been found Insane
and had been taken to the Insane Hospital.
She lived at 219 North Senate avenue. Min
nich knew her mind was falling, but when
he learned at the police station that she
had been taken to the asylum he broke
down and sobbed. He had been preparing
to take her and their three-year-old child
to his mother-in-liw's home In Chicago.
GAVE UP THE CONTRACT.
Contractors Could Not Sign Agree
ment with Labor Unions.
Rather than sign an agreement with the
labor unions, the contracting firm of Rob
inson & Zook has thrown up the contract
it had to construct a building at 227-234
East Ohio street for John S. Wood. The
contractors found it Impossible to employ
union carpenters on account of the hos

says, and finally decided to give up the
contract. Mr. Wood will go ahead himself
with the work, having made arrangements
to employ union labor.
THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
RICHARD S. JOHNSON GRAPHICALLY
DESCRIBES A VISIT.
He Writes to His Father. Dr. John F.
Johnson, of This City Things
Richard S. Johnston, son of Dr. JohnF.
Johnston, of 726 North Illinois street, ffas
written an interesting letter to his father
describing his impressions of the Hawaiian
islands. Young Johnston is a close observer
and his mental snap-shots of the natives
and their old customs are graphically pic
tured. The letter was w'ritten on board
tho steamship Ventura July 11.
The natives are a pleasing lot, Mr. John
ston says, and have a wholesouled hospital
ity for visitors that goes straight to the
heart. The men are well built and muscular
and the women, he fays, are rather pretty.
"They are all a musical lot, and are sing
ing or playing their native songs most of
the time. Their music is plaintive; all the
songs are very simple and appealing.
"It costs a good deal of money to live In
Honolulu. Chickens cost $1.50 apiece; eggs
are 5 cents each, butter Is 60 cents per
pound, cabbage costs 5 cents per pound,
potatoes cost 10 cents per pound and other
articles of food are in proportion."
Mr. Johnston attended the grand ball
given by Governor Dole recently. "We saw
everybody of consequence," he writes, "and
had an opportunity to talk at length with
the Governor and his wife. The natives
were in their best attire. A number of
them were dressed In their 'holokus' or
'Mother Hubbards,' the popular dress of
the native women. The loose dresses were
elaborately trimmed, however, and made
of silks, satins and the finest of cloth. The
foreign ministers were present In gorgeous
uniforms and the old native princely fami
lies were represented. The palace was il
luminated with Incandescent lights and the
trees on the lawn were filled with colored
lights. Outside the palace an immense
crowd watched the festivities."
One of the unique experiences of Mr.
Johnston was a special dinner which he
describes as follows: "I went to a native
'huplau,' or special dinner. None but men
were invited. After Japanese wrestling
matches and sparring the dinner party vis
ited a Japanese theater. The audience was
seated on the ground, eating fruits and
drinking native drinks. One of the per
formers was a Japanese musician who
played 'Cavalleria Rustlcana' on one string
of his queer fiddle-like instrument. After
he had finished the interpreter Informed the
visitors that it was customary to present
the special performer with a purse, and a
present of $5.50 was made up for the violin
ist. After getting the purse," Mr. Johnston
says, "the violinist stood up and addressed
the audience, saying that his European
friends had presented him with a purse of
$lv. The natives looked at us with the sort
of respect that is paid to millionaires as we
went out. It is said that the Japs are the
biggest liars on earth, and I begin to be
lieve that it is a fact."
Two native customs particularly Im
pressed Mr. Johnston. One is the habit of
the Hawailans of swimming out to meet
ships and diving in the clear water for
pieces of silver money. The natives are
the most expert swimmers in the world and
take to the water like ducks at two or three
years of age. The other custom Is the
habit of the natives of going about dressed
in the gaudiest of apparel and covered
with wTeaths of flowers called "leis." One
of their expressions of welcome is to twine
these "leis" or flower-wreaths around visi
tors. Straw lints Dnnlap'a

This age is becoming more and more one of specialists. One wbo succeeds mu?t do
his work a little better than others in the parr.e line cf bu!r.ej. The w inner mut do
at least one thing especially well must be an expert. That Dr. Spaunhur.t is
an expert in his special line cannot be doubted after perusal of such testimony as
Earl H. Cosner. MS North Illinois street, registered pharn-.arijt. graduate cf Tur
due College, sold Urugs six years, said: "it is with great pleasure that I indorse Na
ture's remedyOsteopathy. Troubled f"r years with indigestion, constipation and liver
trouble, I continued to grow worse, after exhausting all known medical means, ai.d
as a last resort tried Osteopathy. Dr. Spaunhurst, the skillful Osteopath, fifth floor.
Stevenson building, gave me permanent relief and I gained eleven pounds in fix
weeks. No recurrence of the old trouble since the treatment over a year aso. I saw
other so-called incurable, chronic cases yield to his skillful treatment. I Quit selling
drugs, convinced that they work mischief rather than good. Dr. Spaunhurst is givir.g
relief to many who had tried all else In vain: hence I certainly feci that it is my
duty to advise the afflicted and distressed to see him about their aliments. He knows
what to do and how to do it without leaving the sufferer dependent upon drugs and
Throw aside all narrow prejudices, look at these facts with simple Justice. Repair
while there is time. A trial will convince that Dr. Spaunhurst's treatment is all that is
claimed for it. Under his new diagnosis most of the common ills of life are seen with
a new understanding, treated accordingly, invariably cured or greatly benefited. Abun
dance of reliable reference. All patients receive Dr. Spaunhurt's personal attention,
and none but competent, experienced osteopaths are associated with
