which, by the way. Is not a new role for
him by any means. During the fourteen
months of his service as chief of police.
Walker has been undeniably successful In
ferreting out crimes and arresting their
perpetrators. He has manifested a pro
nounced degree of acumen, keenness,
acuteness and perspicacity.
AUONO THE JOBS
Which he accomplished chiefly himself,
or assisted materially In so doing, were
the apprehension of William
Jennings (the since famous horse
thief) a jear ago for the
robbery of Luke Baker's house; his part in
the capture of Murray, the diamond thief
and the recovery of the goods; the recovery
of Mrs. Claypool's diamonds and the arrest
of the thief, who Is now doing time In the
pen; his paramount services in the series of
burglaries by the Harry Franklin crowd in
May; the Wm. Jennings

Chief Walker has been doing considera

his proposed detective agency. He Is well
known to the officers of all the cities In
Ohio and adjoining states, and has been as
sured of the warm support of the police de

Walker has already engaged the serv

is police officer Adam Nicklas, one of the
bravest and snrewdest men on the force.
The other Is George Caldwell, formerly of
the Times staff and later a guard at the
Ohio penitentiary. Both wen are thor
oughly good ones. Besides those publicly
identified with the agency, there will be a
number whose connection with the agency

bill to authorize the president of the United
States to protect and defend the rights of
American fishing vessels, American fisher
men, American trading and other vessels
in certain cases. After a ery spirited dis
cussion, with warlike speeches b) Ingalls,
of Kansas, and Fr)e, of Maine, the bill
passed yeas 4fl, nays 1.
Mr. Fr)emadea statement of outrages
to which American fishing vessels had lieeii
subjected In Canadian waters. Among
them was the case of the American es
se! which had brought Into a Cana
dian port seventeen shipwrecked Cana
dian sailors and had been refused
the right to purchase a barrel of tlour to
keep her crew from starvation. Hedeclared
that the annals of history, een of the
Keejee islands, might be searched without
finding a case so brutal and so inhuman.
He also inioted the case of the Marion
(rimes, an American schooner, whose H.ig
was hauled down h) Captain Quig-Jey, of
the Canadian cutter Terror. All the cases,
he said, had been brought to the attention
of the Itritish government That govern
ment knew of the utterinhumanity of these
cases, and knew that the outrages hail been
committed In xiolatlonof the law as well as
of good neighborhood.
Mr. Frye (iuotnH from a recent statute
said that the legislation had been approved
by the IJriti-.li government. Hope, there

fair aud Just was destrojisj and it might
have been known that that would have

Comment of the Canadian Ires on thi.
Toronto, Jan. 28. Referring to Wash
ington fisheries legislation, the GUilte, of to
day, says: "The United States senate.
since it became a caucus of pleutocrats, has
displa)ed little statesmanship, and its de
cadence in general esteem will be furthered
by its 'retaliatory' fisheries bill. Their
game, in its diplomatic aspect Is the old
one of alarming Great Britain into bulldoz
The Jfulf says: "A retaliatory measure
has been passed by the United States and
as a result poor Canada is to suffer all
frowns of the republic if she persists in en
forcing her treaty rights. The Canadian
authorities simply required fishermen to
obey customs laws, such as 'all American
vessels frequenting Canadian ports are
obliged to obey and report on entrance and
to clear regularly on departure.

Attraction, for the I'uhhr lit the Opera
Grank A fair audience greeted "A
Night Off" at the Grand last night, and the
general sentiment was one of satisfaction.
The play is a clean, bright comedy, such
as most of the Augtistlu Daly adaptations
are, but it is not so strong or so ingenious
At "7-20-8," in whose category it is usually
placed. In the hands of a less competent
company, the piece would have been tame.
notwithstanding that it abounds In some
really bright saWngs and business. The
third act descends to burlesque, but is very
laughable, and the audience enjoyed its ab
surdities to the utmost
The cast was an excellent one. Mr.
Ernest Bargram, as "Justinian Babbitt,"
the professor, showed himself a finished
comedian of the highest type. His success
In "7-20-s" here two previous engagements
made him a warm favorite last night
Clarence Harvey was unobjectionable as
"Harry Damask," but lacked life. Mr. C.
J. Burbrldge, as "Marcus Brutus Snap,"
the barm-stormer. w as good but exagger
ated. The ladies of the caste, excepting
perhaps Mrs. Eberie. as "Xantippe Bab
bitt" were not noteworthy.
The Bennett & Moulton opera company
produced Johaiiu Strauss's beautiful little
opera, the "Queen Lace Handkerchief
last night at Black's. Taken as a whole
the performance was much better than that
of Girotle-Glrotla on .Monday night. The
music was more pleasing, thechorusej were
given with more fire and vigor and the
leading performers seemed to take greater
Interest in their parts. Notwithstanding the
seeming coldness of the immense audience
the performers threw themselves into the
opera with an ease aud abandon that was
Mlss Kox won the favor of Monday ,
night's audience by her charming singing I
and acting, and. although she was troubled I
wiin a cough last night she repeated her
success of .Monday night she did some
beautiful work, and her singing and acting
in the second act were really fine. The duet
of the king and queen tMiss Cushman and
Miss Kox respectively! in this act was
charminglj sung and received a hearty re
call. Miss Cushman, as the king, grew
upon the audience as the opera progressed,
and sha acquitted herself admirably. Her
verj' appearance Uon the stage w as greeted
with a murmur of pleasure.
Miss Kssie Barton, as Donna Irene, was
charming, and she has made herself one of
the assured favorites of the week.
Mr. N'odlne sang the part of Cervantes
well, but he was not well up In his Hues.
His solo in the secoud act pleading with
the-queen for a reconciliation with the king
was fine. Miss Edith Barton and Messrs.

6treet St. Louis, Mo., writes .
"During my long residence in Canada I
suffered for years from sev ere pains In my
back, across the regions of the kidneys
and by the constant use of Allcoek's Plas
ter's invariably obtained great relief. Upon
removing to St Louis I was again troubled
with the same complaint, and was advised
to use Magnetic and other kinds of plasters.
without being relieved of pain, so fell
back to my old friend Allcock, who gives
me more relief than any other I have ever
tried. I alvva)s recommend them to my
friends and all who suffer from pains and
aches of any kind."

AN INTERESTING SUIT.
Thj siprlncfleld Engine ami Thresher Co.
the l'lalntin In an Action Involving
Some 31111 Point.
A cloud of witnesses went down to
Xenia this morning to attend the trial
which is in progress there between the
Springfield Engine and Thresher compauy
and Warren Glotfelter. The trouble began
v esterday and the probability is that the
end w ill not be reached before Thurslaj
It would seem that in March last Mr.
Glotfelter, a farmer living in Beaver town
ship. Greene county, bought a traction en
gine, separator and tank of the Engine aud
Thresher company of this city, and gave
three notes of $605 each in payment for the
same. When the first note fell due he was
not ready to take it up. and when he was
pressed by the companj- to settle he dis
covered that the engine was full of de
fects and did not come up to the warrantj
which the company puts upon
every machine that goes out
of its shops. Mr. Glotfelter at
about the same time determined upon an
other thing. It occurred to him that it was
his duty to make provision for his familv
and take care of one or his creditors in
Greene county, and hi pur-uance of his
solicitude for the welfare of his family and
creditor he eonve)ed one tract of land, con
sisting of twelve acres, to his wife through
the intervention of a trustee, and gave a
mortgage iiii another tract of sity-two
acres. He did all he could, for he hail no
other real estate to dispose of. But the
note of the Engine and Thresher Co. was
not paid and suit was brought to recover
the amount due upon it As has been inti
mated, Mr. Gladfeller's defense Is that there
was a breach of vvarrenty on the part of the
company, and that is the issue uimn which
the parties haye gone to a jury of their

and concert course. The subject is "Ideals.'
This Is a very fine lecture.
It is expected that a regular country din
ner w ill be served at the hall on Washing
ton's birthday, with some kind of entertain
ment in the evening, the full nature ot
which has not been determined upon.
Mother Stewart. Mrs Dinwiddie and
Miss Cavileer. of the local W. C. T. U.. go
to Xepia tomorrow to confer with Mrs.
Monroe, president of the state Union, rela
tive to the state convention which convenes
in this city in October. It Isdesi'ed to
have Miss Francis E. Willard. president of
the national Union, present on that occa
sion, and it may be necessary to change the
date to suit some of her other appointments
so the matter is being looked up thus earlj.
The puriiose is to make the convention the
Nst of the series.
