Those interested in the Indiana life insur- citizen referred to cites rules in the ance companies are not particularly qualifications of a policeman in the rules and regulations of the Rich mond Metropolitan Police Depart ment which reads as follows: "The applicant must have been a bona fide resident of the City of Richmond for five years prior to filing his applica tion. Under the rule cited, it was declar ed Chief Bailey would not be entitled to his office owing to the fact that he resided in this city only a short time prior to his appointment. Chief Bailey last evening stated that the rule referred to was obsolete as the- department was no longer gov erned by it. He stated that Lamber son had resided in Richmond for over stwelve years and had only recently moved to the home of his mother-in- law, i "It may be extremely difficult to find a Democrat in this city, still I think that it is not necessary for the police board to go out in the country to secure a policeman," observed the citizen and he continued, "If the old rules and regulations have been plac ed on the shelf the force must be get ting along without any at all as the only book of rules the policemen have in their possession are the ones that have been in force for several years past. In case there are new rules it would be strange if there was no rule preventing the police board from going to Cambridge City, or even Indianapolis, to secure patrol men for the force."

A dangerous fire that was thought to be incendiary practically ruined a large 5-story brick building on Beverly street, caus ing a loss estimated at about $100,000, distributed among several manufac turing concerns. Two firemen were overcome by the dense smoke from the Firestone Tire and Rubber com pany, but later they recovered. Six other fireman had a narrow escape from being carried down by a falling roof. James W. Madden, marble tool maker; Torrey & Co., marble and granite workers; Aronson Brothers, manufacturers of spring beds; the .Boston Wagon company, and the Fire stone Tire and Rubber company were among the heaviest losers.

The smaller the majority the harder it will be for the Governor to get through anything along the line of re form insurance laws, they figure. "It looked before the elect m as if the Indiana companies would have to put up the fight of their lives in de feating any drastic insurance legis lation proposed at the next General Assembly," said one of the Indiana life managers today. "With a bare majority of four or five, the Governor will have a very hard time to push through any of that reform legislation in which he seems to be so much in terested." The speaker intimated that the in surance companies would find it to their interest to combine with repre sentatives of other interests in order to go into the defeating business on the wholesale plan. The fire insurance men are inter ested in the Legislature, it seems, be cause of the probabilities of anti-compact legislation. It is not seen how any such legislation can effect the State situation, now, however, since the establishment of the independent rating bureau by E. M. Sellers, former secretary of the Indiana board, the un ion organization. It is understood that the Governor is just as firmly set on revising the life insurance laws and that he will count on the support of many Demo crats, if necessary to obtain the legis lation that he thinks should be en acted. The proposed legislation will be put up to the Legislature, it is un derstood, and the hope and belief is that it will pass because of the popular interest. PRODUCTION ENJOYABLE "Captain Careless" at the Gennett Yesterday Afternoon and Evening Audiences Not Large. '"Captain Careless" the operatic vehicle which affords John E. Hen shaw an opportunity to display his versatile talents as a comedian, was witnessed by two small audiences at the Gennett yesterday. The produc tion abounds ia strikingly pretty and novel stage effects and some very ef fective renditions of musical composi tions that are far from posessing beauty, with possibly one or two ex ceptions. "Captain Careless" is not a great piece of work musically, and in the hands of a less capable company it would not shine at all. However, John E. Henshaw's personality is capable of making any production really enjoyable and he does not fail in "Captain Careless." One of the de cided novelties was a group of five men and women whose instrumental work was of high order and it was used to excellent advantage. The com pany was large and cappable. Mr. Ilenshaw being given adequate sup port. The costuming and scenic ef fects were strikingly beautiful. View ed in its entirety, "Captain Careless" certainly is enjoyable though it may not be musically, what many had an GIVE VALUABLE LANDS DECISION OF THE COURT Railroads in Kansas Get Benefit of an Important Legal Ruling Thousands of Acres Go to the Big Corporations, in Sun Flower State. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 10. Thousands of acres of the most valuable farm land in Kaneas, together with a large amount of 'and located in towns and cities of the slat?, is given to the Mis souri, Kansas and Texas railroad by a decision handed down by the Kansas supreme court in the case of the rail way company against one Watson. In July, 1SG6, congress granted to the Union Pacific Railroad company, southern branch, now the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway company, a risht of way 200 feet wide from said railway to the south line of the state, a distance of about 150 miles. Afterwards patents' were issued to private persons for land through which the railroad runs without ex cepting the right of way. The per sons holding these patents have treat ed the right of way as being only 100 feet wide. The land affected Dy the decision lies in Geary, Morris, Lyon, Coffey, Woodson, Allen, Neosho and Labette counties, in one of the most fertile portions of the state. Corn Crop Bulletin. Washington, Nov. 10. The prelim inary returns to the crop estimating board of the department of agricul ture, according to a bulletin just Is sued, shows the production of corn in 1906 to be 2.881,096,000 bushels, or an average of 20.2 bushels to the. acre, as compared with an average yield of 28.8 bushels estimated In 1905. The general average as to the quality is 89.9 as compared with 90.6 last year. It is estimated that about 4.4 per cent of the corn crop of 1905 was still in the hands of the farmers on Nov. 1, 190fi. HINSHAW GOES BACK TO PRISON FOR LIFE STAY (Continued from Page One.) lated how two wife-murderers had been sent up under death sentences; how the old prisoners were getting along. All this conversation was be tween Parker and Harvey. Hinshaw listened, but made no comments. The train whistled and the three went up the steps leading to it. There was no crowd. Harvey and Hinshaw boarded the, smoker for all the world like two friends traveling to gether. Before they stepped on Hin shaw shook hands with Parker and one or two others; he wished them well, he said. Inside Harvey and Hin shaw sat in one seat. Hinshaw at the jail, this morning, was anxious to learn when he was to be taken to the prison. "The sooner the better, now," he said. He said that the apprehension that he would commit suicide, rather than go to the prison was as absurd as it was unjust. "While it is true that I would rath er die than go back to prison, I have some scruples about a matter of this kind," he said. "People may not be lieve this, but such is the case. That course would be the easiest way out for me, but there is no excuse for such an act. I will go back to the prison and render the State the best service I can." While Hinshaw would not refer di rectly to the matter, it could be seen. that he had no hopes for the future. "I am a young man yet, comparative ly speaking," he said, "and it will be a long road." He bitterly denied his guilt with reference to" the crime for which he was sentenced the murder of his wife, in 1895. Denies Killing of Wife. "Whatever I have done in the past, whatever I do now, and whatever the future may bring forth, I want it al ways known that I did not kill my wife. I never killed "her; you can be sure of that. I loved my wife too much. I am as innocent of that crime as a newly-born babe." He said also that he never saw Mrs. Freeman, or had communication of any kind with her from the time of his marriage until he was released on the parole in January, 1905. Hinshaw looked better this morn ing than he did yesterday. His step was firmer, his eyes were clearer, and he looked as if he had had a night's rest. He did sleep last night, he said, as he was physically exhausted. "The night before I did little sleep ing," he said. "I was awake practical ly all night. Last night I was worn out and nature demanded sleep. I lay down on my cot very early in the evening, and slept off and on through out the night." He ate nothing but a crust of dry bread last night "to ward off the headache," he told the jail officials. He ate no breakfast today. There was nothing to differentiate him from the dozens of others in the jail, except that he was better dressed than the rest "the boys" as Hinshaw called them. "You are a young man," he said to the reporter as he was about to leave. "You have a much longer and a much pleasanter life and prospect before you than I have. I have only one comment: Be square and fair and have some charity. Play the game of life fairly, and with a charitable un derstanding. Good luck to you. The average young woman of today is busy and has no time to devote to anything but health and beauty. It comes to ninety-nine out of every hundred who take Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea.

HE WAS ON HORSE DEAL PROPOSED BUYING NUMBER OF LEAN HORSES AND FATTENING THEM CALLED AT HARM SHO FER'S STABLE. William E. Hinshaw, today the most notorious man in Indiana, and who has been sent back to the state prison at Michigan City to serve out a life sen tence for the murder of his wife! be cause of the violation of his parole by breaking up the home of Sheriff-elect Freeman of Wabash County was in Richmond last Sunday. Just what he was here for or what he did while in the city, is not known definitely. Hinshaw drove to Richmond from bis home in Lynn, arriving early in the morning and stabling tr's horse at the livery barn of Harmon Shofer on South Gth street. Mr. Shofer stated yester day that Hinshaw gave no information as to his purposes in this city, but ask ed Mr. Shofer if he thought there would be any money in buying up thirty lean horses, fattening them this winter and theu selling them next spring. Mr. Shofer told him that he thought money could be made in this way and then Hinshaw said: "Well, Harm, I have almost made up my mind to do this." It was stated that no wo man accompanied Hinshaw in his trip to this city. "Hinshaw was here last summer, driving down from Lynn," said Mr. Shofer. "He made that trip to pur chase a mare owned by a farmer liv ing near Centerville. He told me that he had been advised to buy the animal by his relatives living in Centerville. No woman accompanied him on that trip to Richmond. I do not know where he stopped either time he was in this city, or anything about him ex cep just what took place at my sta ble. All he ever talked to me about was horses."
