MEETING THIS EVENING. PRESIDENT JOHNSON WILL OUT- '..'". ... LINE SOME POLICIES AS SUG- GESTIONS BUSINESS MEN ARE ' INVITED. . If the efforts of the newly elected officers of the Richmond Commercial Club, count for anything, new. life is tobe instilled into the organization and instead of being a Commercial Club in name only the motto of the rejuve nated club will be "to do things." At this evening's session of the club which will be the first under the new regiW, B. B. Johnson the president will make an address in which he will suggest some of the things that the organization might take up and carry through to success. It is to be the earnest endeavor to bring about a do er relation between the business in terests of tha city than have ever ex isted 'heretofore and the "pull togeth er" plan will be in vogue. , With, the South Side Improvement Association looking after the work of the Industrial development of the city, and doing it well, the Commercial Club will not in any way conflict but it will take np other avenues of com mercial development of the city and expects to find plenty to do. The roster of the ciub shows that there are many business men in the city who have not affiliated with the organization and it is especially urged that these men attend the meeting this evening. .' President Johnson said to the Pal ladium yesterday: We want every business man in Richmond, whether a member of the Commercial Club or not, to feej that his presence is de sired at the meeting and non-members will receive as cordial a welcome as members."

"If Earlham has a winning track team this year, Ave must train as we have never trained before, as most all our material will be green." Such was the statement made last night by Walter Wilson, director of Athletics at Earlham. The Quakers are sadly in need of experienced men this year for their track. team as only a few of last years men are in school. The mainstays out of which Earlham will try to develop a winning team are Capt. Bond, jumper and pole vaulter, McCreary, long distance runner and Smelser and Thistlewaite, the weight men. ., Herbert White wh ran the high hurdles last year in twenty two sec onds, in practice is in school this term, but he may be declared inelig able as he was not in school last term. One of the rules of the Indiana Col lege Athletic League is, that those competing in the State meet shall carry complete work the term preced ing the meet. Tha weakest point in Earlham team this year, as in the past five years, will be the dashes. Although much is expected of Genn and Carey in the hundred and two twenty yard dashes, qeither have records that w uld draw places in the state meet. ' Merle Genn, Rudolph Hill and Floyd Newsome are probably the most prom ising of the new men. j Warm weather will be welcomed by all aspirants for track honors as the training ' which is being conducted at the present time in the gymnasium is very unsatisfactory. , Up 'todate the state meet of the I. C. A. L. which will be held May 19th is the only one scheduled, but Man ager ,)Vilson is s making a strenous Effort J to schedule', at least two dual mews. Negotiations, were under way fpr'dual meets between the Quakers uud Miami and Cincinnati Universities but these two schools have arranged a meet between themselves and -will not meet the Quakers this year. About two hundred yards of cinders have, been laid on the track on Reid Field.vwhich will make a much better finish "stretch than the old one. There Are Six Applicants for Each Place Dr. Schillinger Has To Fill. APPOINTMENTS IN JULY MAYOR-ELECT SAYS THAT HE HAS' GIVEN LITTLE ATTENTION TO POLITICS SINCE HIS ELEC TION. Hagerstown Writer Thinks Too Much "Glory" is Being Given the Young Man. HIS RECORD IS MAGNIFIED. . j ' "I have made absolutely no appoint- s end nq rrcruises" was the em- : s':atet. zxit of Mayor-Elect inger, when ESked for the per ianal of hi3 official family, yesterdey. Dr. Schillinger is a busy man now days wit'j his large medical practice and has devoted but little of his time to politics. . . The Mayor-elect says that he will make no announcements of appoint ments to the few offices he has to hand out r "plums" until the latter part of July or the first of August. "Are there many applicants for po s'.t.'ons?" Dr. Schillinger was asked. Tli fj Doctor stroked his chin gravely fii a iruni.te j.ud then slowly smiled. Yes. ir.rii?y," hs replied. The re poi ter v.;.j then jj'.vea to understand that tliaro wss a.i average cf five or sis applicants ioc every office. There is considerabl speculation as to the makeup cf the mayor-elect's slate, and it is the concensus of opinion that many of the Republicans who sup ported Dr. Schillinger at the last cam paign in anticipation of fat rewards will, when the appointments are an nounced, be found numbered amongr the "also rana."

A reader of the Pallad'.urr takes ex ceptions to th3 statements Unit Locko is a "desperate desperado." He thinkn if Locke is to be classified as a des perado, Richmond must be full cf them and the police in danger of their lives, judging - from the number of houses recently robbed in thi3 city. The letter reads: Hagerstown. April 2. "Editor of the Palladium: Too much is being said of John icke. ; Who did he ever kill? Who did he ever shoct? ; Who did he ever whip? ' Why is he termed a desperado? Is a man a desperado when officers come to Hagerstown with an arsenal and try to capture him, and he runs and n:akeo his escape? It is disgusting to this civilized com munity to talk of a desperado. There are a dozen high school boys that can take a pistol, go to California and re turn John Locke without a trunk full of leg irons. John Locke is a thief and will flee from officers any time he gets a chance. I think you have some cf the Lccke desperados in Rich mond from the number of houses" be ing robbed. I fail to see any of the officers being shot and killed by these desperadoes. More work and less wind is our motto."

NOW RETURN L TO HER HUSBAND Death of Mrs. Mary Shuck Re unites Man and Wife After Long Apart. READS LIKE FICTION REV. ADAM CONDO GETS BACK HIS HELP MATE BY DEATH OF HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW RE LATED IN RICHMOND. The death of Mrs. Mary A. Shunck at Columbus, Ind., at the age of 74 years, reunited a husband and wife who have lived apart for several years and also reveals a romance in which a well known Indiana minister who has many relatives in Richmond and Wayne county figure prominent' ly. The story deals with Rev. Adam Byron Condo, a cousin of William Condo, department foreman at the Wayne Works, and also a cousin of Mrs. Edgar M. Haas. ' The romance started wnen the Rev. Mr. Condo married the daughter of Mrs. Mary 'Shuck, in 1S84. He was then teaching music in Hartswell Col lege, and his bride was interested in the school, they were frequently thrown together and friendship ripen ed into love. The Rev. Mr. Condo was at that time going under the name of Asa Allen Armen. because of an act which he says he committed in his youth and which he was trying to live down. Everything proceeded smoothly un til his brother living in Marion learn ed that Condo was preaching under an assumed name and he hastened to the place. He was instrumental in getting Condo to leave, saying that Mrs. Condo, or Mrs. Armen, had been appraised of his deception ar.d that she did not wish to live with him. Condo' left without saying goodbye to his wife and although she searched for him" and made every effort to learn of his whereabouts, she did not find nntil two years later that he was in Texas. She then wanted to join him. but her aged mother refused to allow her to do so. and consequently the daughter stayed at home. Condo .frequently visited her, ' but unknown to the mother, who thought that her daughter was obeying her in structions. In this way, the "daughter remained true to her mother and true to her husband. The death of the mother removed the last barrier be tween thenuand they are now living happily together. Mrs. Armen will have her name legally changed to Condo.' P What we have for baby. Anything and everything you may; want - .... CO-CART in great variety.: Child's .
