Stereoptican Lecture and Moving Pictures on Japan, K.

The presence of two such able educators as Prof. S. D. Fess and Prof. Charles L. Zjueblin, was responsible for the really intel lectual feast that this year's institute proved ao be. Not only did the teachers find the program one of un usual merit, but other Chautauquans, a majority of whom are probably pa trons of the schools in city or county out ide of the city, were given an in , eight Into educational matters that pertain to the schools of today which had a most wholesome effect. Teachers Well Satisfied. Supt. Charles Jordan was delighted with the Institute and he ajso was greatly pleased at the warm words of commendation which came to him from the teachers themselves. There was a wide difference between the work of Prof. Fess and Prof. Zueblin. The former's excellent, practical and on the whole. eloquent analysis "of his tory was much like turning a search light upon an old and familiar build ing, the details of which had never been thoroughly understood until the light came. Prof. Fess gave a new meaning to much of .the history that the teac'iers were - already familiar "with, and he certainly performed a most valuable service in his concise and thoroughly intelligent suggestions as to the proper methods of teaching history. Prof. Zueblin led one into the realms of thought, whether they cared to agree with him or not in all that he had to say. His almost marvelous in Bight into every phase of society, his ability to uncover the flaws that most people have been wholly unconscious of, and his great sincerity and earn estness give him a place on the insti tute platform that probably cannot be lilled by another educator in the coun try. Prof. Zueblin's utterances were In some cases sensational, it has been declared, but on the whole they were calculated to awaken people. Prof. Zueblin on "Justice." Yesterday afternoon in his closing lecture. Prof. Zueblin's subject was Justice," and he made at attack upon Borne of the political methods that the masses, he said, were led to believe were In the cause of Justice. The 'stand pat" policy in anything, Prof. Zueblin said, was the declaration of an Immoral leader every time, for it showed a disposition to not permit an Issue to be uncovered for investiga tion. Tha pension system was also taken up and pretty thoroughly shaken to pieces, Prof. Zueblin declaring that if the searchlight of honesty were thrown upon the pension system it would reveal a huge scandal one which would show that there are thou sands of men not entitled to a penny from the government who are drawing pensions. The speaker was careful (Continued on Page Five.) ENTHUSIASM IS LACKING Democrats Couldn't Muster Enough of Party to Elect Committeemen and Delegates. The meeting of Wayne Township Democrats to elect ward chairmen and precinct committeemen, which was called for last night, failed to be a mature success. In many of the wards no party members showed up and In others only two or three were on hand, so that buciness was post poed util a later date. - Dr. Hoover Improving.

Danville, Ky., Aug. 31. The quick run of officers from Somerset to this city, prevented the lynching of Perry Copenhaver, a negro who, it in charged, committed a criminal assault on the five-year-old daughter of Leon ard Fairchild, of Wayne county. The negro was identified by the victim and a mob quickly gathered. He was hustled to Somerset, but the mob started to that city from Monti cello, and an order from the county judge wa3 given for the transfer of the prisoner to this city. Feeling is high in Vv'ayne county and the officers here will take every precaution to pre vent mob violence. PHILADELPHIA IS SEVERELY SHOCKED Announcement that Late President Was Embezzler Causes a Sensation. RECEIVER EARLE'S REPORT HE SAYS THAT HIPPE HAD STO LEN SECURITIES AND THAT HE MADE LOANS WHICH AMOUNT ED TO THEFTS. Publishers Press 4 Philadelphia, Aug. 31. The state ment of Receiver Earle, of the Real Estate Trust company of this city, that Frank K. Hippie, the late presi dent of the concern, had stolen se curities valued at 65,000, and that the lending of $3,000,000 to Adolph Segal, on insufficient security, amounted to as much as theft, created a profound sensation throughout the city. The revelation was an especial ly cruel blow to his many intimate friends, most of whom are prominent in the Presbj-terian church, either as clergymen or laymen. So high was their estimation of the man who ab horred tobacco and liquor, and re frained from reading Sunday newspa pers, that not only the various organ izations in the Presbyterian church made the trust company their deposi tory, but hundreds of members of that denomination placed their money in his company. The number of pastors who used the bank to care for their savings was exceptionally large. The criticism heretofore expressed by depositors of the failure of the di rectors of the company to discover Hippie's transactions, has increased and many of the larger creditors are angry at what they term the negli gence of these men. There is now pending before the local courts an ap plication for the appointment of a co receiver, who shall directly represent the depositors and inform them of the true condition of the company. It is alleged several of the directors had knowledge that some of Hippie s transactions were unsafe, but they had such confidence in his integrity that they did not suspect the true state of affairs or entertain the belief that his operations were irregular. It became known that the employes of the company were aware there was something wrong with the accounts. Several of them went so far as to leave checks with their fellow em ployes when they went on vacation, for an immediate withdrawal of their deposits if their suspicions were con firmed. CONTINUE THEIR EFFORTS TO PREACH ANOTHER YEAR Colored Ministers Attending Wesley an Conference Signify Their Wil lingness to Continue in the Minis tory of God. yesterday the Weslyan Conference was devoted to the final examination into the characters of the ministers. All the brethern expressed themsel ves as willing to contribute their efforts for another year in religious work. The remainder of the session was , e devoted to preaching. Miss Walker, matron of the Girl's Rescue Home, Indianapolis, gave an interest ing talk upon her work in that city and the success she has met w'th in rescuing youny girls from dangerous paths. Fourteen dollars was raised as a contribution to her work. T. WASHINGTON HERE Richard Carroll, Who Will Lec ture at Chautauqua, Is Doing Great Work. HAS SCHOOL BOR ORPHANS ELOQUENT NEGRO ORATOR AND EDUCATOR HAS VIEWS WHICH ARE PECULIARLY HIS OWN RACE PROBLEM. Owing to it being necessary for K. Morimoto, the Japanese lecturer to fill an important engagement else where, Richard Carroll has traded places with him on the Chautauqua program. Morimoto will take Car rols place on the program tonight and Carroll will speak Monday night Unusual interest attaches to the lecture of Mr. Carroll owing to the work he has done and his views on the negro problem. Himself a negro and having been engaged in the ed ucation of his race, Mr. Carroll is well Qualified to talk on the most serious problem now confronting the American nation. Mr. Carroll is a second Booker T. Washington. At Columbus South Carolina he has an industrial school for destitute negro orphans, from the ages of one to thirteen years. This school and farm is supported and owned by Mr. Car roll. He now has fifty one children in his care. Mr. Carroll made the Palladium a pleasant visit last night and some of the views to which he gave ex presion are both original and highly valuable. No one should miss Mr. Carroll whether he be black or white. The solution which Mr. Carroll will offer in his ecture for the race prob em will bear the closest attention of all. Few colored men are more pleasing to talk to and from the press notices no colored man is a better orator than Mr. Carroll. He comes North backed by recommendations of the leading white men of the South. An interesting incident which oc ciirred at Lafayette recently illus trates the character of Mr. Carroll. He was refused a glass of soda water in- a confectionery conducted by a white man. A leading resident of the city was anxious to take up the mat ter and see that a colored man of Mr. Carroll's standing should get the treatment bT a white wherever he went." But Mr. Carroll objected and went even farther by lecturing to a gathering of his own people in Laf ayette and upholding the confection er. He said that 'he hoped all white shop keepers would refuse to sell to the negroes and then colored people would start stores of their own.

WET WEATHER HAS SHOWN THE NEED FOR BUILDING Col. Shaw Thinks Fireproof Suitable, and Attractive Pa vilion Could be Erected for $10,000 Profitable In vestment. It fs an assured fact that within the next week or so steps will be taken by the management of the Richmond Chautauqua to begin a movement that will result in the provision of a perma nent Chautauqua building at Glen Miller, not only to house the Chautau qua, but to be used for public gat he r ingfis of other kinds. Every member of the board of directors of the local Chautauqua, and every person who has Interested himself to the extent of in have provided, recognizes the absolute need of a pavilion that will offer both comfort and protection to audiences during times of storm. Supt. Jordan Favors It. Supt. Jordan ,who has been active In the Chautauqua work by reason of his oversight of that part of the program devoted to the Wayne County Teach ers' Association, said yesterday that there was no question that the assem blies could be a much greater success than now, If it were assured the audi ences that no matter what the condi tion of the weather they would bo en abled to listen to the programs with out suffering great inconvenience. Richard Sedgwick, president of the Chautauqua, is also a strong advocate of a permanent building. The Asso ciation is turning approximately $1, 000 each year into the city's treasury for the use of the park. That sum represents all profits, for there is not a member of the association, who is paid a salary, nor does the organiza tion itself retain any oi the profits. The city, it is asserted, could well af ford to build a pavillion at a cost of from $10,000 to $20,000 for the returns each year would net a handsome divi dend on the Investment. Opinion of Col. Shaw. .Col. Shaw, whose knowledge of sucn things is very extensive, Is of the opinion that an attractive .and alto gether suitable pavillion could be built for $10,000. The structure would be of steel, primarily, and there fore fire proof. The directors, it Is understood, will take up the matter later on and will likely make a formal request of the city to build a pavillloa for next season's assembly.

Is as follows: Whereas, The laws of the state cf Indiana pronounce Labor Day as a legal holiday and the Gover nor of the state has seen fit to is sue a proclamation setting forth the meaning of the day, I request that in as far as possible all busi ness be. suspended on Monday, September 3, and the day be given over to an observance of the im portance cf labor.
