FRIDAY .MAY 4, 1906.
Several merchants have criticized us
for takIn5 the ttand wo do in regard
to free fares for out of town custo
mers within a red Iv i of forty miles
statlng that they do not believe sjoh
;a method to be a legitimate business
proposition, and even going so far as
to say they do not believe there would
bo any money in It. Tho merchants
of Indianapolis have been giving free
fares for about three years now, and
as they are not running charity insti
tutions, it is safe to say they are mak
ing money by tho proposition. And
for further proof of the uss fullness of
tho system ono has only to take the
Muncle merchants who have adopted
the idea in the last two years, and
are using it again this year. It isn't
necessary for all tha merchants in
Richmond to be Interested in the
scheme to mako it successful. All
that is needed is a representative num
ber of firms doing a mercantile busi
ness, such as one or two dry goods
stores, a drug store, hardware store,
shoe store, stationary store .furniture
store, etc. With a good "clearing
house" system for handling the free
fares, there is no reason why a com
bination of such firms should not go
ahead and get a great deal of the
trade which is now being attracted to
Indianapolis and Muncle. This cer
tatnly opens a very practical M ay in
which to make business more brisk
during tho so-called "dun" months.
In fact if the scheme were carried out
by the Richmond merchants "we feel
sure they will find out eventually that
the "dull" months of which they have
complained in the past, have been duo
to their failing to provide attractive
enough inducements to get the out of
town people to come to Richmond.
As stated in tho Palladium yester
day, J. A. Spekenhler has been recom
mended by Representative Watson for
postmaster on the retirement of tho
present incumbent, Daniel Surface.
Congressman Watson's choice is a
happy one, as Mr. Spekenhier is one
of tho most popular and able young
men in Richmond, and well qualified
to fill the position of postmaster. He
has earned much merited praise for
the ability he has shown in unravllng
the tangled state of affairs of the de
funct Commercial Bank at Hagers
town, resulting from the peculations
of the bank's ex-cashier, John Bow
man. Mr. Spekenhier has always
been a hard worker for the Republi
can party in Richmond and Wayne
county, and his recommendation for
offlco does not come as a surprise to
his many friends, who have fe't that
his faithful efforts in behalf of his
party demanded some recognition.
Mr. Surface, the present postmaster
uion his retirement will leave a splen
' did record. During his administration
tho postofllce receipts have increased
steadily, the last fiscal year showing
the largest ameav.t of business ever
dono by the pofctotiice in Richmond.
Tho officials of the C. C. & L. should
meet the citizens of Webster half way
in their endeavors to arrange for a
station at that place. Just because
Webster did not at first realize the
benefits it would derive from a rail
road, is no reason it should be denied
now if an agreement satisfactory to
both the parties concerned can be effected.
THE HERITAGE OF THE GREEKS,
The American team has been declar
ed victor in the Olympian games
which has Just been held at Athens,
Greece. Out of twenty-nine events
the Americans carried off twelve
firsts, six seconds, and five thirds.
England was second and Greece and
Sweden were tied for third place.
This victory places the athletes of
the United States ahead of those
from any other country on the globe,
and comes all the more appropriately
for having been won in Greece, the
land in which athletics were first
brought to a high state of perfection.
The athletic heritage of the Greeks
now rests in this country, and like the
American cup, bo often and bo hotly
contested for in the international
yacht races will probably remain here
The ease with which the American
team won the international contests
at the Olympian games, illustrates
with what rapid strides this country
is pushing ahead of all foreign coun
tries, whether in industries -and trade
or In athletics. ,S
' Mayor Sehmitz's telegram of grate
ful appreciation to Mayor Zimmeman,
should elicit a great many more con
tributions for the suffering victims of
San Francisco. The Palladium will
willing act as the medium for for
warding all new contributions.
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
To the Editor of the Palladium:
Some of the ministers have inter
ested themselves unnecessarily in the
welfare of us workingmen, as to how
we should spend our Sundays. Would
it not. be well for the clergy to remem
ber that courtesy is a go6d thing and
that we do not care how they spend
their Sundays. Why should they
bother about us? I presume that the
ministers of Richmond get from ten
to thirty dollars a Sunday for preach
ing and if we mechanics and dav la
borers could get as much we would
not want to go fishing and picnicing,
but when we work six days hard, we
feel the need of recreation on Sunday.
If some preacher will come and
take my place in the shop six days I
will go to church twice on Sunday
and not charge anything for it.
DAY FOR PUZZLERS
MANY FAIL ON THE RHYME
Palladium's . Jumbled Line contest
Still Attracting Much Attention
Some of Yesterday's Answers are
Amusing, Some Few Were Correct
in Every Detail.
The puzzlers who are daily trying
to solve the answer to the Palladium
jumbled lino contest had a difficult
time yesterday trying to arrange the
rhyme correctly. Somo of the answers
were amusing, the manner of arrang
ing the lines being original if noth
ing more. Some jjot a fine start and
waded through the rh.vme until near
the close 'and then "fell down" and
failed to get the balance of the lines
correctly. Today's contest is still
different. Qan you arrange, the lines

LOS ANGELES UNSCATHED
CHARLEY GATES' LETTER
SAYS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
METROPOLIS IS IN THE BEST
OF CONDITION CITY FILLED
In a letter that Harry Gates has
just received from his brother Charley
Gates, of Los Angeles, considerable
light is thrown on the situation as it
now exists in the soMthern California
metropolis. Mr. Gates was formerly
a well known Richmond newspaper
man and is now connected with the
Los Angeles Herald. His letter in
"The old town of Los Angeles has
not gone up or down from the earth
quake shocks but is simply digging
away to do its part in relieving the
distress at 'Frisco. Los Angeles is
taking care of all the refugees who
come and I can assure you that it re
quires lots of money and provisions to
accomplish the task. Jim Jefferies,
the champion pugilist, and others of
the fraternity were out yesterday
selling oranges for the benefit of the j
fruit brought as high as $20 each. The
Southern' Pacific has been bringing
refugees intp Los Angeles by the
trainload, carrying everybody without
cost. Los Angeles will profit to a
considerable extent for thousands of
these refugees, vrtll remain here, and
a majority of them are good citizens.
Los Angeles has no fear from earth
quake disturbances. - The city is built
on different ground than that upon
which San Francisco was built. Many
people suppose that Los Angeles in
times gone by has suffered from
earthquakes, but this idea is wholly
erroneous. SlighL trembles have been
felt but absolutely no damage done."
