We are inclined to side with Mr. Watson. Furthermore, we believe the charge of dlsaentlon, if applicable anywhere, belongs to the Democratic party.' Within the past few weeks an attempt was made by ex-Mayor Holtzman of Indianapolis, to stir up a housecleaning bee in the Democrat! party similar to the one through which the Republican party party passed so successfully. Ex Mayor Holtzman, however, found out to his cost that Tom Taggart, owner of the French Lick "Monto Carlo,' was still the Democratic "boss" in In diana, and was forced to smother his well-meant efforts toward reform. But the fires of outraged public decency and party pride are still smoldering in tho brea8t3 of - many Democrats, who have grown weary and disgusted "of the sway of such a man as Taggart in their party and it wcild't be at all surprising if a number of these dis- contented ones would Bupport the Republican ticket this fall. The housecleaning through which the Republican party has gone since last fall has left it in what is probably the strongest position it has enjoyed , in Indiana, for many years. We know this is true of Richmond and Wayne county. The Republican defeat last fall, has strengthened the party lo cally to such an extent that it will carry everything before it this fall. And we are glad to say that tho name of the Hon. James E. Watson heads tho ticket which is going to win In this district. THE MAY FESTIVAL. All praise to the men and women who have In any way been instrumen tal in promoting the Richmond May Festival which last night was opened "under most auspicious circumstances. In these days of strenuous commer cialism when men of affairs give their time and energy to promote an artis tic event which would do credit to cities ten times the size of Richmond, they certainly are deserving of the fullest commendation of the city as a whole and tho. project which they have carried to success in an artistic way should receive the most liberal support. Last night's initial concert of the series of three brought togeth er a representative Richmond audi ence and not a few out-of-town people wh6 recognized that Richmond was offering them something which few cities of equal size in the entire coun try could offer. It was a wonderfully executed program and a remarkable array of talent was that which parti cipated. In addition to the great Theodore Thomas orchestra, with Mr. Stock as conductor; tho great solo ists, both vocal and instrumental, the Richmond people in the audience felt a thrill of pride in the great chorus, drilled to such Ideal perfection by Mr. Will Earhart. The chorus was a de cided feature of the first concert and the Individual members of the organ ization are entitled to full credit for their long season of work. It, is to be hoped that tho Richmond Festival Association will achieve such success financially that there will be encour agement for further efforts In the same direction. Should there be a deficit result, and the festival pro ject abandoned Richmond is to be pitied. The city's reputation for mu sical culture would bo irreparably damaged. .3- 1 - -J ' -i V 1 '1,' r 1 ENGINEER C. H. HASWELL, NEARLY A CENTURY OLD. In a recent speech Andrew Carnegie said: "How many millions would I not give to be assured of living to be ninety-seven years old, like friend Haswell here!" The Haswell referred to is Charles Haynes Haswell, who was chief engineer In the United States navy long before the civil war. He designed and operated the first steam launch, introduced zinc into marine boilers, helped design the Brooklyn bridge and. has written several books. WONT WED: REPORT EACH T Administrator of Matilda Hab erken Estate Asks Court for Relief. A VERY PECULIAR WILL THREE DAUGHTERS LEFT MON EY WHICH THEY LOSE WHEN THEY MARRY HAVE BEEN SINGLE SIX YEARS. William H. Haberkern, administra tor of the estate of the late Matilda Heberkern, yesterday file4 a petition asking that he be excused from mak ing'reports to the court. The provis ions of the will of the late Mrs. Hab erkern are very peculiar and prevent the immediate settlement of the es tate. The real estate Is divided among the three daughters, Matilda, Emma and Carrie, but only the income can be used by them. They have the land and hold it together as long as they all three live and remain unmar ried. In case of the death of one. the third of the income which was hers is to be divided between the other two. In case one marrieB, the result is the same, that one loses her share. If one marries or dies, the other two get the estate until they either marry or die. The property then goes elsewhere. Six Years Unchanged. For six years, the situation has re mained unchanged. None of the three daughters wish to marry and give up a third of a large estate. The adminis trator does not wish to be required to make reports that always embody the same thing, and for that reason, he is petitioning the court to grant him a release from hl3 duty of reporting un til such a time as the heirs die or marry. Such a situation is Tery rare, but the terms of the will cannot be chang ed and to marry means to forfeit a one-third Interest in the estate.

ROAD Contract Alleged to Exist Between Big Four Relative to Entrance Into Richmond and Muncie is Once More Called up for Comment. Palladium Special. Muncie, May 28. The star which controls the destiny of the Central In diana seems to be swaying dizzily In its orbit, as many and contrary are the reports about the threatened change of control. It was rumored a shcrt time ago that the road would pass June 1 to the absolute control of the Pennsylvania. Another rumor of like purport waft ed in a few days ago and threw the local employes into cold sweats and frenized visions of the awful ax wield ed by President Cassat and his assis tants, cutting off men from salaries. Attorney A. M. Van Nuys, local legal representative of the road, when ques tioned about the change stated that he knew absolutely nothing of the matter at all. The rumors have beejj coming with such insistence, however, that many of the local railway men place much credence in them. It is understood in railway circles that there has been a tacit agreement between the Big Four and Pennsylvan ia Railway companies to the effect that if the Big Four stays out of Rich mond the Pennsylvania would not en ter Muncie. If the taking over of the Central Indiana by the Pennsylvania is effected by June 1 this compact will be void and a railway war may be the outcome. AT HIGH SCHOOL J. C. WHITE, A MISSIONARY TO INDIA, SPOKE TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS IN CHAPEL. Freshmen Boys Hold Meeting to Make Arrangements fr Track Meet with Gar.ld Pupils Taking Part in May Festival Were Excused from School Monday Sophomores Get ting Ready for Picnic tt Jackson Park. Mr. J. C. White, a foreign mission ary to India, gave a very interesting talk in the high school chapel Monday morning. He showed the pupils em blems of three different religions in the old world. The emblem of Moham medanism was a large whip made oi one thickness of hippopotamus hide. That of Buddism was a prayer ma chine, which grinds off prayers as the Buddist talks or works. The em blems of the Pagan religions were a diagram of a cow, which is held sa cred by the Pagans , and a small fringed girdle, which is the only ap parel of any kind that the Pagan wo men wear. Mr. White exDlained how these things illustrated the heath enism of the three mentioned relig ions, and how much better a christian enjoyed life. There was a meeting of all the Freshman boys Monday noon to ar range matters concerning the field meet which that class will have with the Garfield school. There are sev eral good athletes in both schools and a good meet Is anticipated. All the pupils of high school who are In the May Festival chorus were excused Monday morning to get ready for their singing and practice work at the Coliseum. The Sophomore class, especially the boys are getting ready for their picnic which they will prober hold at Jackson Pork. .-.

Lafayette, Ind., May 28. Miss Ma bel Barton McBroom, of this city, is the first lady student to graduate from the school of civil engineering at Pur due University.

A colonel in one of the Pennsylvania regiments during the war was particu larly opposed to the soldiers foraging and stealing supplies. But the boys would forage in spite of everything, trusting to luck to run the blockade and safely reach their tent with the captured prize. A jolly young soldier was caught one night sneaking into camp with a Juicy hind quarter of mutton impaled, on his bayonet. "Where did you get that meat 7" demanded the colonel sternly. "Killed It in self defense," was the unblushing reply. "In self defense, eta?" "Yes, sir. You see, colonel, the crit ter flew at me out here in the woods a ways, an I wasn't goin to let no wild animal get the best of me while I was fully armed an able to defend myself, so I" "That'll do; you're excusable this time, young man," said the colonel re laxing Into a smile, "and, by the way, I've got a little errand for you."

Years ago Bernard Shaw furnished a biographical sketch of himself to an English newspaper. It Is said to bo still correct except as to his bachelor hood, and It runs thus: "I am a bache lor, an Irishman, a vegetarian, an athe ist, a teetotaler, a fanatic, a humorist a fluent liar, a social democrat a lec turer and debater, a lover of music, a fierce opponent of the present status of .women and an lnslster on the serious in art." Aa In Hr Dmn, Bays a recent news Item In an Eng lish newspaper: "A Mrs. Howling of Penge dreamed that she saw her little girl washed up on Hastings beach and the body taken away on a tarpaulin. Two days later the child was knocked down by a pantechnicon and Its wheels passed over her. Bystanders brought a tarpaulin, upon which the child was taken to tho Beckenham cottage hos pital." The Eaii Side. "A city's slums," said a globe trotter, "are always in its eastern quarter. I wonder why? Take New York. Its east side Is lis slum side. So it is with London. The east end Is the slum end. Of Philadelphia, Chicago, Canton and Madrid the same thing holds good, as I know from personal experience. The only possible ground I can give for a city's slums being invariably In its eastern quarter Is that this quarter Is the one that Is exposed to the harsh and unpleasant rigors of the east wind."
