SNIDER DELAYS REVELATIONS IN COFFIN EXPOSE Threats to ‘Tell AH’ c ail to Materialize After Poli tics Break. Reluctant today to disclose facts which he declares will unearth evi dence of maladministration of coun ty government under Coffin rule. County Commissioner George Snider followed up his verbal tussle with Albert Middleton, Coffin politician with the assertion "more is yet to come.” Snider's definite break with Coffin politics was echoed today in his fiat assertion to Middleton that “from on on count me as anti-Cof fiin.” Until recently he was considered one of the Coffin group. Tempted by Argument Evidently tempted to make t/>e sudden "swing” by his argument Tuesday with Middleton over ap pointment of election officials to the Fifteenth precinct of the Ninth ward, Snider again met with Mid dleton today, although under cir cumstances less violent than on Tuesday. Middleton always has been con sidered one of Snider’s closest po litical associa.es, and according to rumors, owes his berth as court house custodian to Snider. Parting ways today, Snider warned Middleton to remember “you have gypped five committeemen out of jobs through your dirty politics.” Hinted at Corruption “You're an ingrate,” Snider barked. Middleton laughed. "All right, old boy," he returned. A:; an ex-sheriff and county office holder for a decade, Snider in his fist-waving verbal combat with Middleton Tuesday threatened a “tell all” orgy about political cor ruption, and promised to “make the voters so disgusted they'll never cast a CofTin vote again." "I'm looking out for my own ward.” he said today in response to queries to whether he intended to make the promised revelations. CITY BUYS PYROMETER Device to Test Boiler Efficiency in War on Smoke.

Y Rare Fish Is Caught Here by City Man 851#; Jagg 'fry - ■ Clayton Marsh “/CAVIAR! We have some nice V>| choice Eagle creek caviar to day.” This may be the cry of Indian apolis fishmongers if this fish story is believed in its entirely. For the fish in the hands of of Clayton Marsh. 14, of 1917 Oli ver avenue, is a shovel-nosed stur geon. And “no fooling” this sturgeon was caught in Eagle creek at about Thirty-eighth street and Washington boulevard by a man named Smith. “He was fishing with me and caught him with a dough-ball on a thirty-two trout line,” Marsh explains. “He feared he wasn’t good eating so he gave it to me.” The fish was identified by George Berg, superintendent of the state game and fish hatchery, as a sturgeon. Berg says it is unusual for them to be caught in this vicinity. Fishermen in the Wabash river near Terre Haute have caught shovel-nosed sturgeon, but Berg says it's the first he's heard of in the environs of Indianapolis. Sturgeon Is famed as a source of caviar.
