John Evans states that he is not a can

Mr. Evans has leased for a warehouse.
Mr. Evans states he would be willing to
give the city one fourth of the receipts
for the privilege. He says that in this
way the square would be rid of the pres
ent shanty occupied as tbe weighmaster s
quarters. As far as moving the weigh
master's quarters is concerned, Mr. Evans
judgment is correct. The disagreeable
looking structure should be taken out be
fore the square is paved, and moved
farther back, a block at least, and in this
view of the case Mr. Evans' proposition
would not avail him of much good

HIS SOJOURN AT EVANSVILLE.
The Old Man Makes Charges Against His
Family His Heavy Losses.
EVAXsviLLE, Inil., May 2. B. P. Hutch
inson, the eccentric wheat speculator who
so mysteriously disappeared from Chica
go last Tuesday night, w as found in this
yesterday morning at the Peoria house, a
second-class hotel near the Louisville and
Nashville station.. When he arrived in
Evansville ou Wednesday morning he
was advised to look at the manufacturing
establishments in the lower part of the
city and he would then be nearer to the
station and convenient to leave ou the
afternoon train for the south.
Why He Left Chicago.
After looking about he became so fa
tigued that he went to the first boarding
house be could And, intending to resume
his journey when he became sufficienlly
rested. Mr. Hutchinsgn was easily per
suaded by Superintendent of Police New
ett to go to police headquarters in a pa
trol wagon. Mr. Hutchinson says that
tbe reason he left Chicago was because his
son was taking steps to bare him sent to
an insane asylum. He does nottbink he
is insane, but several people here who
have known him in Chicago are satisfied
his mind is not right.
Lost 83,000,000 In Three Months.
He says that in the last three months
he has lost over 3, 000,000, and blames his
son for his losses. If he had beeu let
alone, he says, be would have come out
all right. He also says that his affairs,
if properly manipulated, will bring him
$500,000. The chief of police telegraphed
to his son, Charles L. Hutchinson, at Chi
cago, asking what to do with bis father,
and received a reply to release him, but
to keep an eye on him and report bis
movements to Pmkerton, who had tbe
case in cnarge.
"Old Hutch'' left on the Evansville and
Terre Haute train for Chicago at 6 o'clock
p. m. He was taken to the train by Detee
tive Wilson, who had been with him all
day. Just before be stepped into the car
riage to go to tbe station a telegram was
handed to him. He opened it and, read
ing hastily, said: "'Don't come home.'
Weil, I will go home," and stepped . into
Takes No Stock in Base Ball.
Chief Xewitt asked him if he would
like to attend the base bail game. "No,"
he replied. "I take no stock in base ball.
I have never been but once in my life to
a game, and then I sat out in the hot sun
thirty minutes, which was enough for
me. The game is demoralizing anyway.
It is nothing more than a gambling
scheme; the same thing as the board of
trade, only ou a smaller scale."
He continued: "This country isn't run
right. The government should not allow
more than 10,000 people to congregate in
any oua place. With good-sized villages
where everybody knows the other's busi
ness instead of large cities, people would
not a have a chance to form rings and
Looks in on 'Change.
About this time the Chicago speculator
expressed a desire to see tbe local board
of trade, and was taken' down to tbe
apartments on First street. As be entered
the exchange his eyes brightened. Tak
ing bis glasses from his pocket
he walked up to the board and
examined tbe quotations with much
interest, frequently leaking remarks
upon tbe state of the market.
While iu the exchange a message came
from a local firm asking Mr. Hutchin
son's opinion ot the wheat market. "I
would rather buy than sell," was tbe
wheat king's laconic remark as be read
Looking Over Hit Accounts.
Chicago, May 2. At Mr. Hutchinson's
office yesterday five accountants were
busily at work on his books. "The books are
very much involved," said the head ac
countant; "and it is hard to say how they
will come out. But it looks now as if
there would be a balance in Mr. Hutchin
son's favor of $50,000 or more." The story
that Mr. Hutchinson's family intended to
put him in a lunatic asylum is emphatic
ally denied by Mr. Charles L. Hutcbin
son, bis son. He says there is no founda
tion for it, and that nobody is j ustitied iu
interfering with the old man.
