President Makes Statement.
In rec'ting the h'acts of the desire
of Secretary Hitchcock to retire and
his -reluctant 'acceptance of a re-appointment
of March 4 1003, the presi
dent says of his latest ferquest for
"The president urged him to accept
the ambassadorship to "France, but
Mr. Hitchcock feels that he is entitled
to absolute rest and was obliged to re
fuse the offers. The president went
carefully over with Mr. Hitchcock, the
choice of a successor who could be de
pended upon to carry on with abso
lute fidelity the present policies of the
department, and agreed with Mr.
Hitchcock that the best man to carry
on the exceedingly onerous, difficult
and responsible work of the depart
incnt, was' Mr. James R. Garfield."
Because tney refused to leave ai
home the corduroy trousers which
they began wearing last week, the
boys of the Senior class at high school
were not allowed to take their accus-
tomed places at the order of Princi

barger, acting on the suggestion of the
' school board, told the Senior boys
Tuesday night that they would not be

JURY ACQUITS STANWODD
Hatch Carnival Agent, Accused of
Stealing a Watch at Earlham Col
lege Exhonerated of the Charge in
After less than a half hour's deliber
ation, the jury which listened to the
testimony in the case of the State of
Indiana against Barry Stanwood, press
' agent of the Hatch Carnival company,
who was arrested and charged with
haying stolen a watch from Earlham
College dormitory, was yesterday ac
quitted. The case of the State was
not strong, in fact the friends of Stan
wood had from the first claimed that
his arrest was not justified under the
circumstances. The police and
prosecutor, however, had maintained
that there was plenty of evidence to
warrant conviction. The jury took
an altogether different view and dis

Jacob Abel has returned from a
two months visit in Philadelphia,
New York, Washington and other
Eastern points. He had an enjoyable
time but only his failure to reach a
passenger station on time in Philadel i
phla two weeks ago saved him from
being In the terrible disaster on the
Delaware road, in which a car plung
ed into the river drowning mot of
its occupants. Mr. Able had gone to
the station to take that train but was
five minutes late. While waiting for
next one he heard of the accident and
went to the scene which he said was
beyond description. Mr. Abel sj-ent

ed the preliminaries in the New York
municipal campaign. He brought
back with him some unique campaign
literature circulated by both leading
parties during the fierce fight.
New Boilers Given Test.
The new boilers at the Municipal
Light Plant are being subjected to
a test by representatives of Meade
Engine Company of Dayton. There
has been a delay in the shipment of
the new electrical machinery for the

Palladium that he did not intend to
suspend any of the students unless
they should resort to tactics more seri
ous than those indulged in up to the
present time. He said that in case the
boys reurned to school, today they
would be reinstated.
The boys at present are antagonistic
and say they will not return without
their corduroy trousers. Th9 girls
of the Senior class declare that thej'
will go to school today wearing blue
skirts and white waists as a mark of
sympathy for the boys. Principal El
labarger said last' night that if such
a course were followed by the girls to
day, they would be dealt with just as
the boys had been.
No Intention to Dictate.
Principal Ellabarger does not in
tend to dictate the style or color of
any of the student's clothes, but some
time ago the schood board decided
that there "should be no class colors,
or other marks of class organizations
worn in the high school, which would
have a tendency to arouse class feel-
, ing. This, it is felt, the corduroy trou
sers have done. Principal Ellabarger
says that he did not think at first that
the trousers would cause any trouble
and it was not until some Juniors
tried to stand up for their class by
throwing mud and ink' on thercordu
roys, that Mr. Ellabarger took a hand
in ths matter. :
It is thought the parents will stand
by Mr. Ellabarger and there is little
probability of the situation becoming
serious, as Principal Ellabarger has
always shown himself to be fair and
diplomatic in handling such youthful

A number of the boys said last night
that they were not sore at Principal
Ellabarger, but at the school board
They declare that tho school board
gave out the "anti-corduroy" order
and that now Supt." Mott refuses to
give them a hearing. They boys also
contend that it is an injustice to make
them give up wearing trousers which
cost them over five dollars apiece.
