issued in Justice Roddewlg's office
Tuesday afternoon against Sheriff E.
G. McArthur at the request of Attor
ney C. T. Cooper, who signed the in
formation against the sheriff, was not
served on that official. The informa
tion charged Mr. McArthur with a neg
lect of his official duties. At the time
the warrant was issued, Mr. McAr
thur was in the country and did not
return until night. Therefore, .it was
impossible to serve the papers. on him
until his return. Hut before his return
the case took another and a very de
cided change in the opposite direction.
Justice Hoddewig informed Mr. Cooper
that, upon investigation he had found
that he had secured the issuance of
the warrant on a false misrepresenta
tion and moreover that it was merely
a piece of spite work. This statement
made Mr. Cooper very angry and a
heated discussion followed, durin;
which Justice Roddewig tore up the
warrant in Mr. Cooper's face and in
formed him that no warrant would be
so:ved for him against the sheriff in

Have Wireless Piano. Messrs. Gil-
more and Goodheart, who are interest
ed in a new invention known as a
wireless piano, appeared before the
Business Men's association and were
heard relative to the instrument which
they desire to have manufactured and
placed on the market. They desire
capitalists to help them in starting a
factory and the invention is believed
to have sufficient merit to warrant the
association in instructing the new
board of directors to investigate and
send competent judges to Blooming-
ton, and test the instrument to ascer
tain as to its qualities. Messrs. Gil-
more and Goodheart are enthusiastic
over the instrument and claim that
when it is heard in contrast with the
wire pianos, the opinion always favors
the now kind. The tone is made by
the hammers striking what is known
as a scalene cone. This is greatly sim
ifar to a tuning fork which is used by
vocalists and is made of such metals
that they will not rust and will remain
in tune forever. The cones are fasten
ed to a sounding board which gives the
necessary vibration and produces the
sound. The hammers are constructed
the same as in an ordinary piano.
Objected to Trip West. New York
gazed in wonderment at the production
of "At Cripple Creek" last season during
the long run there. E. J. Carpenter
saw it and at once set about securing
it for a western tour. There were nu
merous dimcuities in tne way. tney
did not like to send it west at popular
prices, the railroad jumps, were too
long, and so on through? a dozen or
more objections; but the business done
in the west by Mr. Carpenters attrac
tions at last convinced the New York
managers that no other western man
ager could so ably handle their attrac
tion, and they signed contracts with
Mr. Carpenter to bring "At Cripple
Creek" to the western country. At the

Carries Out West's Policy. For 37
years the name or wmiam m. west
has stood for all that was cleanest,
brightest and best in minstrelsy. This
fact alone accounts for the great and
continued prosperity of the West Min
strels. While dear old "Bill" West, as
thousands affectionately called him,
has gone to the great unknown, his
name is still the same potent power In
his beloved calling. His young ami
trusted manager is still at the helm
after 10 years of association with his
beloved employer. All who know any
thing of jnlriVvtrelsy are familiar with
the name, Sanford B. Rlcaby, and he(
is proud of the fact that the great ,
American public have given him the
same great patronage that they gave
the sbowjduring the life of William H.
West. This has been proved' conclu
sively during the past four years, and
it is due to the fact that he has pre
sented to the people a performance of
high merit. and absolutely free from
anything objectionable. It is always
c lean and pure. The company will ap
