Vv'il iam E. Ilinshaw will go back to the benitentiary at Michigan City, tomor row tn serve the rest of a life sen tence for the murder of his wife. Governor Ilanly, this afternoon, re toked the parole upon which he wa3 eleased by Governor Durbln, about two years ago, and ordered Ilinshaw (remanded to the Marion county jail hie telegraphed for Warden Reid, of Michigan City prison, to come to In I'i.'manolis tomorrow and take the Jprisoner back. I Ilinshaw, the prison once more staring him in the face, refused to (discuss the matter at all, after the Governor gave his decision, this af ternoon. Haggard, heavy-eyed, trem bling, he responded to the question for a statement: '"I have nothing to say; nothing at all." His eyes were full and his voice trembled, but he did not com pletely break down. Made a Clean Breast of it. The decision of the Governor came with unexpected suddenness, owing to the complete confession of Ilin shaw this afternoon. In the hearing this afternoon, he made a clean breast of the whoIe matter with ref erence to Mrs. Freeman. " lie admitt ed that he had improper relations with her at Shirley, as Freeman had charged, and as Mrs. Freeman had confessed. In the morning he had admitted that he and Mrs. Freeman were there; that, they stayed there all night; admitted that he wrote to Mrs. Freeman, who was an old-time sweet heart, immediately after he got out of prison; that she answered his let ters, and that a considerable corres pondence passed between them; ad mitted that several times they met at Lynn, Randolph county, by ap pointment, and that Mrs. Freeman's visit there to her sister, Mrs. C. R. Carter, was arranged for; admited it seems, that while she was there, the two went driving several times, both in the day light and after dark. He admitted, too, according -to the story that came from the Governor's room, that he met Mrs. Freeman at Shirley by appointment; thaf the two, with Mrs. Freeman's four-year- One of the new interurbarf cars, which will, be used in the limited service between Dayton and Indiana polis made a trial trip to Richmond from the barns at Greenfield yester day, in record - breaking time.

In fact it seems that he admitted the whole story, with the exception o the undue in timacy the night the two stayed a Shirley of at any other time. The testimony of every one else was almost convincing in its circum stantiality, however, and Mrs. Free man's confession, as recited by her husband, left no doubt in the minds of those who were present that the whole story was true, even before Ilinshaw confessed. Little Defense From Attorney. John S. Duncan, who was Hin shaw's attorney, made small effort at defense in his argument. There wasn't much he could say, those who were present acknowledged. The whole case was admitted; so Duncan based his appeal on the pro position that the defense was not! grave enough to send a man back to the penitentiary for life. This was the burden of it. and it was not long. Attorney-General Miller made a short -speech in answer to this. Attornev Milner, of "Wabash, Freman's attor ney, did no make a speech. Governor Hanly seemed to have made up his mind, after Ilinshaw's confession. After tie two short speeches by Miller a ad Duncan, he addressed the prisoner, declaring that he was not fit to be outside the pri son bars. The Governor's Remarks. "Sorry' as I feel for you personal ly." the Governor was heard to say, "I am convinced that the prison is the best place for you. I shall there fore revoke the parole granted to you. and you will tomorrow be taen back to Michigan City. That was all. Publishers Press Washington, D. C. Nov. 9. Presi dent Roosevelt feels aggrieved over the attitude of certain people who have taken advantage of his freedom of expression in private conversation. The case of the American professor who in accepting the Roosevelt chair n the university of l3rlin quoted the president of. the United States as holding the Monroe Doctrine and the protective tariff as obsolete,' is the most striking incident of this kind. There have been others of a less aggravated nature. The Presi dent had them all in mind 'when1 he departed for Panama last night, for there was given out from the "White House today the following memoran dum: "For many years it has been the i invariable practice never to attempt to quote a private conversation with the president. It v has been found that as m matter of fact the man who old child, were there all night, and- quotes such a conversation usually misquotes it, whether conscientiously or not; and such an alleged conver sation is under no circumstances ' to be held as calling for either explana tion or denial by the President. The President is responsible only for what he himself says in public, for what he writes, or for what he ex plicitly authorizes the proper govern ment officials to state in his behalf." One week from Monday the Elks' Fall Festival or indoor fair will open at the Coliseum and will continue each evening until Saturday, with possibly several afternoon "sessions" for the benefit of those who cannot crowd into the great building at night Plans for the big event are well un der way at the present time and there is no chance for failure to make it an artistic success, while the in terest that is being manifesed on ev ery sicfe shows that from a financial standpoint it also will be a success. The Elks have not spared expense in their preliminary arrangements and in addition to what very large expenditures the organization has made there has been in addition a very large amount of valuable dona tions from various merchants, man ufacturers, etc. Given Lot in Beallview. The South Side Improvement As sociation which is selling many lots in the new Beallview addition, yester day gave the. Elks one of the best lots in the addition and somebody is go ing to get he piece of ground for a silver dime. Then there will be a $850 piano, three 60 steel ranges, 1,000 sacks of flour, fifty barrels of flour, fifty lawn mowers, 10 sugar cured hams, 10 barrels of sugar, suits of clothes, dresses, men's and wom en's hats, rain coats, shoes, slippers, boots, pictures and picture frames, and scores of things that cannot be enumerated in several columns of a newspaper. The full list of the don ors will be given publicity later. Many of these valuable gifts are now on display in the windows of the Starr Piano Co. The "Lay Out" Planned. The "lay. out" of the Coliseum was planned yesterday by the executive committee. The "Country Store,' which made such a hit at the last fair will occupy most of the north side of the Coliseum. There will be a dazzling array of merchandise from bandana handkerchiefs to imported china and all at one price. There will be numerous gentlemanly clerks to serve the public and there will be such a stock of goods constantly on hand that everybody in the county ought to get in on the good things during the week. The flower booth will be by long the handsomest thing of the sort ever seen in Richmond and will rival in beauty the booths in the great flower shows of the big cities. The novelty booth, candy booth, commissary booth, chocolate booth and various other booths will all be attractive and they will be presided over by some of the popular society ladies of the city. Richmond Band Each Night. The Richmond band will play each night aud in addition to this there will be a free vaudeville entertain ment nightly in which there will be featured one of the novelty acts of the big vaudeville circuit. In fact, summing up the Elks' fair this far ahead, it appears there is nothing to it but success and the public is going to get much for their small. in vestment, the Elks say.
