His Control of the Iron Hall Is
A EECE1VEE WILL TAKE HIS PLACE
Jnde Taylor Appoints 'James F. Falley
to Take Charge of the Concern and It
Will lie M ound l"p The Judge Take
OfCMton to Score the Management as
the Wonl in Hi Experience The Case
So "Plain that no Argument Was
Indianapolis, Aug. 24. The Iron Hail
ii now in the bands of a receiver in the
person of James F. Failey, a well-known
wheel manufacturer of this city, and a di
rector of the Merchants' National bank.
The inevitable end came late Tuesday aft
ernoon. The incident of the morning in
court was the prodnction of a resolution
cf the supreme sitting practically indors
ing the "investment" of t$6,000 of the or
der's funds in certain worthless securities
y J: Henry Hays, of the Mutual bank.
This resolution was signed with the name
of Dr. J. T. Younghusband, 'chairman of
the board of trustees, bnt on the stand he
repudiated the signature, and imputed it
to Supreme Vice Justice Hosmer.
The Testimony All In.
The latter was recalled and said he bad
written it, but at Younghusband's re
qnest. Youtichusband bad no chance to
talk back. Supreme Cashier Davis was
again placed on thestaud and produced a
number of additional telegraphic orders
from Somerby to send him money for
"legislative work" in sums of f 1,000 and
S300. lie vowed that upon several occa
sions Somerby had positively ordered him
to semi large sums to the cashier of the
Mutual bank, thus explaining the order's
very l.tree deposits there. After this tes
timony the plaintiffs rested their case at
noon, and on their request a court bailiff
vra ordered to take charge of the order's
offices to prevent the removal of papers.
The defense offered no testimony except a
couple of letters.
Judge Taylor's Opinion of the Case.
The plaintiff then filed an amendment
to the complaint and their counsel plead
ed for time to prepare nrgument, but the
court cut matters snort, juage iyior
said: '"Really, gentlemen, I do not think
it necessary for any argument in this
case. The question is clear and decided,
and in my mind there is no question that
a receiver should be appoiuted and the
affairs of this order wound up. Such
management as the officers of this order
have b?en guilty of is such as this court
has never heard of in twenty-five years
practice, or iti ten years on the bench. It
seems to have been managed more for the
keeping up of the supreme officers than
for the good of the members. It is only a
question of limited time until it mot
close up anyhow. I shall uppoint; a re
ceiver." ' Poor Outlook for Assets.
The order appointing a receiver was
then read andwas approved by the court.
Mr. Hawkins read the form of a bond. He
suggested that the penalty be fixed at A
$1,000,000. Judge Taylor said he would
fix it at $750,000, remarking that "that
would cover the amount of assets in In
dianapolis.for.if I am any judge of human
nature he will never realize 5 cents on the
dollar from the Philadelphia affairs."
Judge Howe was granted ten days to file
a bill of exception to the amended com
plaint, and sixty days to except to the evi
dence.! The appeal bond was fixed at
t50,C00. The receiver will not continue
the order in its insurance business. Xo
further assessments will be called and the
order's affairs will be wound up as soon as
Proceedings at Baltimore.
Baltimore,1 Aug. 24. Another bill for
an injunction and receiver was filed yes
terday in the city circuit court against the
Iron Hall. The bill prays that the Iron
Hall Savings bank be restrained from col
lecting any money due it on mortgages
and from parting with any of the funds of
the order now deposited in its vaults.
Judge Dennis sigued an order grauting a
preliminary injunction to thisjtffect, and
aettiug Aug. 31 as the day for the order to
show cause why the injunction should not
be made permanent.
LOOK OUT FOR CHOLERA.
It Baa Beach Havre and Is "Epidemic
"WASHINGTON, Aug. 84. Consul Oscar F.
Williams at Havre reports an epidemic of
Asiatic cholera at that place with many
deaths, and advises an inspection of the
fast liner La Touraine, due here Aug. 27.
These facts have been promptly com
municated to the health officers of Staten
Island, and every precaution will be taken
by them in the matter, especially in view
of the fact that the epidemic has now
reached two of the most important porta
in Europe with which the United States
has direct communication, Hamburg and
and Havre. The latest news here ex
presses a doubt whether the cholera has
not also reached Antwerp.

away walk for two hours, the only
changes made to break the monotony be
ing the changing from fours to platoons.
The line was two full hours passing a
point, and before the end of the march a
light rain began falling which quickly
scattered those weariug plumes, who were
afraid they would get their fine apparel
Serenaded by Business Men.
Last night the business men of the city
took it upon themselves so have a parade
of their own in honor of the visitors, and
with umbrellas of Pythian colors they
marched to the various hotels of the city
and then to Camp Shaw, where they ser

One company came up with fixed
bayonets in front, while another
marched on the rear of the mob,
which held its ground until the
order to charge was given; then sullenly
and slowly, showering imprecations on
the troops, the mob gave way. The wom
en took every possible advantage of their
sex and taunted the soldiers and dared
them to use force. As soon as the street
was cleared the moving was consummated
without further trouble.
SCANDAL IN THE VATICAN.
A Cardinal Bounced for Alleged Fiscal
Rome, Aug. 24. Great excitement has
been caused by the dismissal of Cardinal
Ruggiero, prefect of financial affairs of the
propaganda, and who has been looked upon
by many as the probable successor of Pope
Leo XIII. It is said that the pope himself
ordered Ruggiero's dismissal, being con
vinced as a result of inquiry that Kuggiero
and not Monsignor Folchi was the really
guilty party in connection with the misin
vestments, to use a mild term, for which
Monsignor Folchi was dismissed from the
papal service about one year ago. The
dismissal of Folchi was brought about, it
is said, by Cardinal Ruggiero. Folchi was
vice chamberlain to the pope, and had
control of the papal funds.

Man Who Would Win the Belle of
WlLKESBARRE, Pa., Aug. 24. Miss
Theresa Morris is a handsome young lady
of Sugar Notch, a mining village near
here, and her good looks and pert manner
attracted the attention of Patrick Calpin
and John Leneban, two stalwart young
miners of the little village, to such a de
gree that they soon became jealous rivals.
The girl openly declared she liked them
better than any of the other boys in town,
but couldn't make up her mind to accept
either one, as she might find she liked the
. a vr Them a Gentle Hint.
On Saturday uight they were both call
ing on her when she casually remarked
that she would never marry a man who
could not, if necessary, fight to protect
her. This spurred the young men to a
trial of strength and skill. They agreed
to have a stand-up fight, the winner to
take the girl. Sunday night they went to
a quiet spot on the mountain with a few
friends to carry out this programme. The
men wore knee-trousers and nothing else.
When they locked arms the struggle was
fierce, and for half an hour each kicked,
punched and butted the other until Cal
pin, who was smaller than lenenan, gave
way and acknowled himself beaten.
No Rowdy Scrimmage for Her.
AH torn, scratebed, and bloody, the men
returned to Sugar Notch, where the girl
was awaiting the result. When told of

she would not marry the winnerof a rowdy
scrimmage, and if they wanted her they
must &ght a scientific battle, like John L.

the men recover from the effects of their
encounter Sunday night they will box sci
