Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 15. (Spl.)
In an opinion rendered today Attor
ney General Charles W. Miller de
clares that the act of 1903, which at
tempted to make uniform the begin
ning of the terms of county officers, is
unconstitutional, and that all county
officers, including judges and prose
cuting attorneys, whether their office
is constitutional or legislative, will en
ter on their new terms at the expira
tion of the terms of their predecessors
whenever that may be. In effect, this
opinion, if followed, entirely abrogates
the act of 1903, and leaves the situa
'on so far as the beginning of terms
is concerned, exactly the same as it
was before the enactment of that law.
If this opinion is ; followed Judge
Fremont Alford, of the Criminal
Court, will retire from his office No
vember 17, next Saturday, and all oth-vr-judges
of the State, together with
other county officers, will enter on
their terms at the expiration of the
terms of their predecessors, and not
wait until January 1, 1907, as the law
of 1903 provided.
Effect of Decision.
This decision affects judges of Cir
cuit, Superior and Criminal Courts,
all prosecuting attorneys, all county
auditors, treasurers, clerks, sheriffs,
recorders, assessors, coroners and
surveyors. Instead of taking office
January 1, 1907, as the law provides,
they will begin their duties the day
the term of their predecessors would
have expired regularly, that is, had the
law of 1903 not been passed. These
expirations come at different times,
mostly in November.
The law of 1903 was passed because
there was great irregularity in the end
ing of terms of county officers and the
beginning of new terms. The pur
pose of this law was to bring order
out of chaos by trying to start all
officers' terms on January 1. In some
cases this would have lengthened
INDIANS IN SORRY PLIGHT
REPORT OF P0V. KIBBEY
Former Richmond Man Says That
Uncle Sam's Wards in Arizona are
Ekeing Out Miserable Existence on
Cactus and Herbs.
PROVISION OF THE LAST TESTA
MENT GIVEN OVER WHICH LIT
IGATION HAS ARISEN THREE
(National News Service.)
Washington, Nov. 15. Uncle Sam's
wards in Arizona are in a sorry
plight. According to Governor Jos
eph II. Kibbey, of that territory, the
members of the White Mountain,
branch of the tribe are slowly starv
ing, and whole families are ekeing,
out a miserable existence with cactus,
and herbs as their only food. A1--though
the Governor's report is li
the hands of the Secretary of ther
Interior, there is little that can be
done, beyond looking out for the In
dians' temporary needs. The whole
trouble seems to rest in the anti
pathy the Indian has for work. They
would much rather loll around their"
tepees while their squaws toil and
their children tumble about the ! application afterwards
The suit of Miss La Verna Beard
against Earlham College, in an effort
to compel the trustees of that institu
tion to admit her as a student under
the provisions of the will of Zachariah
Stanley, wrill prove me of the most in
teresting legal contests that has been
heard in Wayne Circuit Court in many
days. It developed yesterday that
Judge Fox will not pres'de when the
case is called. He will decline to do
so on the ground that he .vas '.he at
torney for the late Zachariah Stanley.
Not only this, but Judge Fox drew up
the will which contains the Earlham
College provision now brought into
"I was for many years the confiden
tial friend and adviser of Zachariah
Stanley," said Judge Fox vests rday to
the Palladium, "and I feel certain that
I knew more about' his affairs, busi
ness and private, than any other niau
save himself. In all, I drew op five
wills for Mr. Stanley, three of them
containing provision for the educating
of blood relatives at Earlham College."
Will Use Special Judge.
To use the expression of one of the
circuit court attaches, the suit of Mios
Baard will have to be heard before an
imported" judge and the attorneys in
the case will probably agree upon the
special judge in a few days.
Not only the friends of Earlham
College are interested in the case,
but because of the peculiar ground up
on which it is based, the provisions
of the will upon which two interpre
tations are placed, has interest to
people in general. After urovidinig
for the sale of the farming "lands in
Delaware county for the benefit of
Earlham college, the provision of the
will in question in part follows:
"I direct that the income that shall
result from the said lands or fund
shall be applied by the proper author
ities of the college as follows: First, to
the education of my blood relations,
preference being given to those bear
ing the name of Stanley. Second. :
t in any year none of my blood rela
tions shall apply for the benefit of the
income of the said fund, it 'shall accu
mulate in the handsof the college au- j

necessary, to those who shall make

James Muckridge, formerly of Cam
bridge City, who was tried at Leba
non, O., Wednesday, for horse stealing
and against whom Sergeant McManus
and Patrol Driver Livelsberger tes-!
tified, has been sent to the peniten-!
tiary for a term of four years. The j
jury was out less than a half hour.
Muckridge, drying his residence in
Wayne county, was never arrested on
charge of theft. He was known as a !
horse-trader, and his transactions were j
carried on in Eastern Indiana and !
Western Ohio. According to the!
Ohio officers, Muckridge was known
to them as a horsethief, though theyi
had never had a case against him un- i Cj

bucks of the tribe are about as disin
clined to travel as they are to work.
Despite their suffering, the Indians'
are said to be behaving tnemselves
in exemplary manner. Although they
comprise 14 per cent of the entire
population of the 'territory, Governor
Kibbey declares they furnish only
three per cent of the convicts in the
penitentiary. These figures, the gov
ernor thinks, prove the Indian to be
peaceable and law-abiding. The In
terior Department is making plans
to assist the jmfortunate tribesmen,
but such assistance naturally can on
ly be makeshift, to tide them over
their present troubles.

CITY AND COUNTY
A majority of the property owners
in Richmond who are assessed for
public improvements do not take ad
vantage of the Barrett law which
gives ten years for the payment, plus
5 per cent. This fact is derived from
the records in the office of City Treas
urer Johnson and shows that as com
pared with other Indiana cities of
like size, there is a comparatively
small number of tax payers who re
sort to the installment plan. In im
provements that have been made in
Richmond during the past three
years, more than fifty per cent of the j Df the city yesterday morning.
