Ilinshaw has many relatives in Richmond and Wayne county and also many close friends who have from the time of the minister's conviction main taineci tnat he was innocent or the murder.

There was a large congregation present and the al leged wife-murderer selectei what he evidently believed were appropriate scriptural passages, his endeavor be ing to impress his hearers with the idea that he had been grossly mis judged and had suffered punishment which should have been borne by others. Serious Charges Are Made. Hinshaw's violation of the parole which was granted him by. Governor Durbin is the alleged breaking-up of the home of George Freeman, of Wa bash county. Ilinshaw and -Mrs. Free man have been much in each other's company recently and they were at Lynn together within the past week or so. Sensational charges are made. A telephone message from Lynn to the Palladium last evening was to the effect that the Sheriff of Ran dolph county, armed with a writ from the governor, went to the Ilinshaw ' home north of Lynn at 11 o'clock yes- mer minister. He was hurried to Win chester and taken to Indianapolis on a Big Four train. Lynn, where a sister of Mrs. Freeman resides, was in the midst of great excitement last night over the case. OPENS UP FAMOUS CASE. M Mrs. Hinshaw May be Ascertained j by the Authorities. Indianapolis, Ii:d.. November S. (Spl) The arrest of William E. Hin shaw, convicted of tne murder of his wife and sentenced to imprisonment for lif?, only to be paroled several years later, was made at Lynn, Ran dolph county today and Hinshaw is now in Indianapolis. The arrest promises to open up the Hinshaw cast? again, and throw fur ther light on some of the mysteries of that famous murder. Hinshaw was a Methodist minister in what was known as the Belville circuit, Hen dricks county. On the morning of January 19, 1S95. his wife was found murdered, and Hinshaw himself shot in two places and slashed with a ra zor. , Hinshaw was accused of the crime and after a long trial he was found guilty and sentenced to life im prisonment. He was released by Gov. Durbin on th last day of his term of office, January 9, 190r. the parole be ing at the pleasure of the Governor. The parole was granted at the earnest solicitation of Union U. Hunt, now rauroau commissioner, wno nas oeen a lifelong friend of Hinshaw. At the time of the trial another woman was connected with it in an in definite way. It is i-ught that the present developments will clear this matter up beyond all peradventnre and that the whole truth of this fa mous case will come to light at last. Breakup of Another Home. The present developments involve the alleged breakup of another home. The warrant was issued by Governor Hanly on a representation by George Freeman, Republican sheriff -elect of Wabash county, that Hinshaw h?d been intimate with Freeman's wife since his release from Michigan City, j Freeman is a brother of Will Free-; man. secretary of the State Board of ; Forestry. j Will and George Freeman have ; (CoaUnued on .Page Two.) v THE WEATHER PROPHET.

WILL MEAN SUSPENSION SENIOR BOYS DECLARE THEY HAD NO HAND IN IT AND ARE WILLING TO TELL WHO DID PAINTING IF NECESSARY. i In spite of the fact that James I. Van Zant was on guard -at the high school building last night students at the school painted large red numer als 07 and '09 on the cement walks and pillars at the two entrances to the building. The numerals are for the Sophomore and Senior classes, but it is known that no Seniors took part in the painting and it is thought that no Sophomores had a hand in it. The Senior boys recently had trou ble with the school authorities over the matter of wearing corduroy trou sers. It might appear that they paint ed the numerals at the building as a piece of spite work, but the boys "fixed up" their differences yesterday and returned to school and last night after the painting occurred a number of the Senior boys declared they had nothing to do with it. They said that they knew some of those who did the work. They said they were Juniors and in case it was necessary for them to tell Principal Ellabarger who did the painting they would do so. The Seniors even went so far as to help Janitor William McGrew and Fireman Van Zant in their efforts to remove the paint. The numerals on the cement walks leading up to the building were erased but the paint sank into the softer stone of the pil lars and it is doubtful if it can be washed off. As the painting of class numerals on the building is clearly a violation of school rules it is highly probable that the students engaged in it will be dismissed from school. Those who did the painting cleverly ejluded Mr. Van Zant, who was watch ing the building by painting the nu merals on the south side while he was on the west side of the building, jid when he was finding the numerals on the south side they were busy with their painting on the west side.

WEST SIDERS WILL CONSIDER A PARK New Improvement Association Want a Beauty Spot Along the River. COST WOULD NOT BE BIG CITY NOW OWNS SOME LAND ON PROPOSED SITE OF PARK AS PLANNED IT WOULD EXTEND SOUTH FROM RICHMOND AVE. The West Side Improvement So ciety which has many projects under consideration for the betterment of that section of Richmond, will at its next meeting one week from this ev ening, consider the park proposition and it is believed by the members that they have a plan whereby not only the west side but Richmond as a whole can, with little trouble and little expense, add a beautiful public park and play ground to its chain. Attorney A. M. Gardner, a member of the society, spent considerable time yesterday in the office of the city engineer ascertaining just what ground the city owns on the west bluff of Whitewater river south of Richmond avenue. Sbme time ago, during the period that Harry Weber was city engineer, there was a gen eral park scheme on, which included the building of a drive way about the city. West of the river it would have (been on the edge of the bluff, while the ground on either side of it from Richmond avenue to Kinsey street was to have been converted into a park. The West Side Improvement Society, taking its cue from this ab andoned boulevard project, hopes. to have a "Riverside Park' which shall extend from Richmond Avenue south to Kinsey street and from the edge of the river's bluff west to West First ctrnot Hie Tir?iTr1 friro o n-rm w strip of ground four blocks in length and it not only would give the city a new and beautiful park, the promo ters say, but it would be a step to ward civic beauty that would be gen erally appreciated. The city now owns two or three lots along the riv er bluff and the other ground is held by various persons. The land will be appraised and at the meeting of the West Side society a report will be made showing what the cost to the city would be if this necessary land would be purchased. Sooner or later the society believes, there will be more or less building on this tract of land, and when this begins it would be difficult to obtain the necessary ground for. the proposed park.
