of conlidence to give it, said to a 111 pi in ic
representative last night that the nomina

the non partisans was a grave mistake and
one that ought to lie remedied.
This remark put the reporter on the
lookout for development, and this morn

campaign commune Ime been settling tip
with isehnell. and ende-iv oritur to persuade
him to withdraw from the ticket. 'lhe

statement. While the old lady was be ng
arrested, her daughter said: "Mother. I

One week ago list Tuesila) night the
"Miami Natural Gas compaii), with head
quarters at I)a)ton, Oliio," made applica
tion to council for a franchise of the trvets
ofthiscit) for the purpose of la) ing main
and pipes through which Springfield was to
be suppliod witli natural gas for "boating
and power purposes onl)." Mr. Urown, of
Toledo, nxplained who and what the coin
pan was but the members of council were
not altogether satisfied with the statement
and expressed a desire to investigate the
matter before the) look steps toward giving
to comparative strangers a valuable .franchise.
The same coiupan) had an ordinance In
troduced into the Da) ton cit) council,
granting it the right to la) ami maintain
gas mains and pies in the streets of that
cit). On Wednesda) night the ordinance
was called for its second reading, and one
of the mrmbeis moved to postpone tho con
sideration of the ordinance indehnitel).

Mr. Idilings explained and said that the
parties representing this compan) asked
for privileges without an) well to supply
the gas The) had made the same applica
tion at Springfield, and were refused until
the) had gas to bring with them. The cpni
pan), he asserted, is the Standard Oil com
pany in the guise of the Miami company.
He favored protection to the home com
pany in preference to foreign companies,
when the latter simple wanted a valuable
franchise to speculate uon, with no inten
tion to furnish gas. He favored competi
tion If made in good faith.
Mr. M)ers regarded the company as a de
vouring monopolist that asked for privileges
in order to crush out the home company.
There would be no competition if the ordi
nance passed, as the compan) would drive
out the home compan).

The annual meeting of the Spring
field Auxlliar) of the Americau McAll
Association was held on Thursda) night in
the lecture room ot the First Presb) tenan
church. The meeting was well at
tended. Among those present were man)
of tho most devoted Christian women of the
cit), who are earnest workers In the assoc i-
ation. Man) of the cit pastors and other
gentlemen were also interested auditors.
Mrs. Her. Warren, having removed from
the cit) and resigned her position as pres
ident, Mrs E. P. Christie, vico president
for the First Presb) terian church, con
ducted the meeting, which she opened b)
otlering a brief pra)er. She then read a
portion of Scripture, and Hev. Ir. Kust,
pastor of High street Jf. E. church, was
called on to lead in pra)er. The excellent
choir of the First church rendered an ap
propriate antht m.
The letter of resignation of Mrs. Warren,
addressed to the secretar), was read by that
official. The president stated that the res
ignation had been accepted at the regular
business meeting of the board of managers.
Mrs. Warren has been one of the chief
supporters and mainsta)s of the associa
tion and her presence is sadl) missed. The
resignation was only adopted because
there was no alternative.

Private Watchman William Caldwell has

center of the rear part of the store. The
watchman's first impression was that some

a little later he saw to his alarm that the
smoke was too profuse and heavy for to
bacco smoke, and that something
was evidently on tire inside. The
door was locked and he had no
key. Caldwell threw his almost three hun
dred pounds of avoirdupois against the
door with the intention of "springing" it,
but was unsuccessful. He called to his as
sistance two b)stauders and tried it again,
but the weight of the three men was not
sufficient. A fourth outsider happened

They were not a moment too oon. A
spark of Incandescent carbon had fallen
from the electric light and alighted in a
great pile of stockings. They had caught
fire at once, and some were already blazing,
while others were smoldering ami sending
out clouds of thick smoke. The watchman
seized the burning hosiery, threw it on the
floor, stamped out part of the lire and car

pavement In front. After the fire was all
extinguished and the danger over Caldwell

We also heard of the rumor of the call
that Dr. Leonard had receiv ed from Indi

nothing definite, so allowed the matter to
rest. The item, however, was published
last night, and we can state positivel to
'a) that Dr. Leonard has not received a
call from the capital of Indiana.
He has received letters, we un
derstand, from private sources,
asking whether he would favorabl) con
sider a call from that point. Dr. Leonard
has received, during the past six or eight
ears, so man) Mattering and more remu
nerative calls, which would take him out of
the Cincinnati conference, and allowed
them to pass unheeded, that we feel per
fectl) confident of the result of these nego
tiations. Dr. Leonard has not and will not
take the matter Into serious consideration.
We can rest assured that his zealous work
here will be continued.

The duets arranged from Judas Macca

Both engineers and firemen saw that the

very close-mouthed about the matter.
The facts, however, are these: The two
trains pass at Hagenbuch's at -:3S. Tram
12 was three or four minutes late, and was
lomingdown grade, while Xo. 9 had left
Hagenbuch's and was coming to L'rbana.

would not work, and before the collision
could be averted they were together. A
wrecking train was sent to clear up the
funeral of David Jroufc.
On the 10.-20 Pan Handle train this inorr-

harmony which has made the Messiah so
