PETTIS, BASSETT 4 CO. COXKQT BREAKS SILENCE And Tells AH About Hew Bynum and Creel man Appointed Him. Frank Creelman baa tried to explain that he took no active interest in behalf of Barney Con roy until he had requested the latter to bring him a letter from Oscar B. Hord recommending him as a person fit for appointment. Barney, who is not in an aimiable mood in regard to the treatment he received from Bynum and Creel man, requested a hearing as to the Hord letter. Said he: “When Frank Creelman says he asked me to bring him a letter from Mr. Hord, he lies. Ho never told me to get a letter from that gentleman, and, moreover* 1 never asked Mr. Hord for a letter, either on my own account or at the request of others. I have not seen Mr. Hord from the time he signed my petition. “Months before the Ist of January I was working at the Acme mills. The proprietors wanted me to continue, but late in the year I told them that I expected to get a government place. They urced me to work for them, and 1 said I eon Id sot give a decided answer at that time. I went to Bynum and Creelman and told them of the piece for permanent work I had at the mills. They had promised me a place in the jgorernmeat’s employ long before that. I asked them: *Can I rely on you if I give up the posi tion at the miller They replied: ‘Yes; give it up, asd we will see that you have an appoint ment to office.’ I did so, and for some time was idle, waiting on these two men to fulfill their They told me they would have tl> appointment for me before long. They kept putting me off from time to time until I not only got tired of waiting, but had to do something for a living. The first of the year I went to Creel naan to withdraw the petition, and tell him that J must get work, and could wait no longer, as I had a chance for work at the mills. He said it wonld not be many weeks before I got the place, and, in the meantime, he would give me a tem porary joh. He tried to find a place for me with Taggart, at the Union Depot restaurant, bat he did not need a man. Creelman then, when he could find nothing else, gave me the care Os his deli very-wagon. They can’t escape Iheir relations with me. Bynum and Creelman have no right to expect any help from me here after, and if they don't do the fair thing in shar ing the responsibility for placing me in this posi tion of notoriety, I will explain some interesting political history in Marion county. I am going to work at the Aemo mills on Monday, and try to live down the unfortunate reputation I have gained.” New Corporations.

THE WOOL-GROWERS. Important Amendments to the Rules Regu lating Showing Sheep at Fairs. A paper on “The Influence of Climate, Food and Shelter on the Growth and Fiber of Wool.” was read by J. R. Tomlinson at the morning session of the State Wool-growers’ Association yesterday. “The Shropshire Downs: Their Origin and Their Adaptation to the Wants of the Sheep-growers of Indiana,” was the subject of a paper read by J.

We recommend the appointment of an export to go through the pens before the committee make their examination, and note on the entry-books all entries not complying wi.h those rules, and it shall be the duty of the superintendent of the depart ment to put up notice that these sheep are disqual ified. The association adjourned early in the after noon. The next meeting will be held on the fourth Tuesday in January, 1887. Amusements.

Talent was selected from the various assemblies of the order THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1886. in this city, and responded in the order called. W. P. Smith, district statistician, presided as stage manager. Instrumental and vocal music, comic songs and dancing, recitations (all orig inal), speeches, essays, etc., were in abundance, and rendered with excellent effect. At 11:30 the grand march was announced, and the happy knights did justice to the noble order until the break of day. _ TRIED FOR MURDER. Thomas Birmingham, the Murderer of Will iam Beniou, on Trial for the Crime, The trial of Thomas Birmingham, on the charge of murder, began yesterday. This is the man who, on Oct 15 last, while serving as bar keeper for James Maley, on West Washington street, brutally kicked and pummeled Wm. Benion, a poor outcast, for his failure to pay for a drink of whisky. Benion, within twenty-four hours, died at the station-house, after being taken there from the West Washington street bridge where he had gone to lie down after he was assaulted. The State is represented by the prosecutor and his assist ant, Mr. Keeling, and the prisoner by Mr. Spaan. Seven peremptory challenges to the ar ray of jurors were made by the defense and two by the State, after which the jury stood as fol lows: William M. Harrison, Martin Anderson, Alonzo Kitchel, George R. Bernhard, Joseph M. Taylor, William Peterson, Andrew J. Snider, Walter M. Schaffer. John S. Boyer, Calvin Loucks, Isaac M. White, Charles H. Dean. George C. Merritt, an eye-witness of the oc currence, said that about 8 o’clock in the morn ing of Oct. 15 he saw Benion lying on the side walk and Birmingham vigorously kicking him. Benion tried to get on his knees three or four times, when the prisoner would knock him down, and repeat the blows with hands and feet. Ono time, while Benion was on his knees, Bir mingham hit him such a blow in the face that he heard it across the street He said: “That blow will kill him.” After Birmingham got through he allowed Benion to arise and walk away. Wit ness went into the saloon to get the name of the assailant, when the latter said: “He got all he deserved,” but refused to tell his own name, Charles E. Hadden* of No. 352 West New York street, saw the assault, and, describing it, as did Mr. Merritt, said, “I cried out, ‘Hey, there!’” Birmingham helped Benion up and then knocked him down to renew his kicking. He kicked him in the left side. After the de fendant got up he walked away without assist ance. Dr. Albert Stratford told of the results of the post-mortem. He said the brain of deceased was normal. The covering of the stomach was filtrated with blood and showed livid black marks on the left side. The left side was congested and the right kidney diseased, while the left was ruptured and broken. There was a fresh bruise externally directly above the ruptured kidney. External violence no doubt caused the rupture. Wm. Erdman testified that he saw Birming ham walk around Benion repeatedly while he lay on the walk and kick him. Benion walked to the bridge and lay down on thepior after the assault. Witness tried to help him, but the suffering man could not talk. Frank Alexander said Benion made no resistance at any time to Birmingham’s blows. Captain Colbert talked with the defend ant at the station-house, when the latter told him he kicked and beat Benion because he would not pay for a drink of whisky. Dr. Brennan, who assisted at the post-mortem, gave a description of the organs of the deceased and of the marks and bruises on the body, in agreement with Dr. Stratford’s testimony. He thought death was due to the ruptured kidney, and that the rupture resulted from violence. On cross-examination, however, he said if the rupture occurred at the time of the kicking Benion could not have got up and walked away, nor could he have lived eighteen hours afterwards. He told the prosecuting attorney that he never saw a ruptured kidney before. The trial will be continued to-day. WORK FOR WOMEN. m Philanthropic Ladies Discuss a New Field for Christian Work in Indianapolis. The parlors of Mrs. Charles E. Kregelo were filled on yesterday afternoon by women from the various’ehurches of the city to consider new sub jects of philanthropic work. Miss Sarah P. Morrison read „Matthew viii, 1--4, commented briefly on the sympathy of the touch of Chris tians, and led in a fervent prayer for the bap tism of sympathy. Mrs. J. R. Nichols, State president of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, spoke briefly of some of the lines of work of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, and introduced Miss Morrison, who presented, in beautiful language, a few thoughts on the spirit and mission of the Woman’s Christian Temper ance Union. An informal discussion of the pa per followed, several ladies participating. Mrs. E. A. Blaker read a paper on the “Creche, or Day Nursery,” showing the need of such a department in connection with the free kinder garten, where workingwomen could have their children, below the kindergarten age, properly cared for during the day. Mrs. R. R. Parker spoke of the work of the department of social purity as one that should be dear to every woman's heart. She gave, briefly, the history of the White Cross Army since its or ganization in England, three years aso. While it was designed, primarily, to elevate men, in its reflex action it helps women, also. It seems a hopeless task to eradicate an evil which is as old as the world, but, with 200,000 Christian women banded together to work for that end, the false standard of society by which men who are adulterers are received, while their victims are outcast, must be changed. Women sometimes say to her they would rather be igno rant of such things. Not the right way. If women were informed they would know how to go to work to mend matters. The extent of the social evil in our city is appalling. More than nine-tenths of the children born at the City Hos pital are illegitimate, and from sixty-five to sev enty-five per year. Nearly nine-tenths of the dis eases there are through direct result of indulgence in liquor and impure habits. Fully one-half the cases of insanity are caused by in dulgence in liquor and impure habits. There are in the eity 149 notorious houses of prostitution, with nearly 400 inmates. An ex perience of over fifteen years in mission work in the city had revealed to her an appalling amount of impurity in all classes. How is this moral ulcer to affect our sons and daughters? is a question for every Christian mother to consider. The dangers surrounding young girls, the difficulties in the way of re claiming women who have fallen, were shown, and the almost utter hopelessness iu such work. A general discussion of the subject followed, Mrs. Nichols speaking of the great need of a midnight mission near the depot, and of anight matron there to protect young girls who come into the city and have to wait at the depot at night. Most of the ladies present gave their names for membership in anew Woman’s Chris tian Temperance Union for the carrying on of special lines of work of the N. W. C. T. U. The hour being late, the election of officers was postponed till Tuesday next, when au adjourned meeting will be held at Mrs. Chas. E. Kregelo’s. Pardoned by the Governor; George W. Fort, who was convicted as an ac cessory before the fact to grand larceny, and sentenced in the Hancock Circuit Court, in No vember, 1883, to three years’ imprisonment in the penitentiary, was pardoned yesterday by the Governor. The larceny was committed by Wal ter Allford and Harry Honeycutt, aged respect ively sixteen and twenty years, and they were pun ished by short sentences. Although he received $125 of the stolen money, Fort claimed that it was paid to him for property he had sold to the boys, and he has at all times insisted that he was innocent of the charge. The pardon was recom mended by the court officials of Hancock county and a large number of citizens. The life giving essences of the pine forest are found iu St Jacob’s OU. Fifty cents. EMBARRASSED FIRMS. The Business Difficulties of Three Firms Con sidered in Judge Taylor’s Court. Judge Taylor told the attorneys interested in the application for a receiver on the part of the Mauch Chunk Bank and others against A. L. Wright & Cos., to prepare papers for the appoint ment, with the necessary bond. He advised them to select some one for the trust, and re port to him on Monday morning. If they could not agree, he would select someone. All ques tions as to the validity of the mortgages will come up hereafter, and if it appears they are valid, the Judge will direct the receiver to pay them. If they are not valid, they must take their place iu pro rata distribution. In the same court the S. M. Rumsey Manu facturing Company, of St. Louis, applied for*a restraining order against J. Giles Smith, the plumber. The complaint alleged that defendant was insolvent, and unless restrained would mortgage his property in preference to certain creditors, to the plaintiff’s injury, to whom he owed S6OO. The restraining order was issued and made returnable at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at which time defendant filed affidavits denying the charges and asking to be relieved from an in junction. Upon this action the plaintiff filed a petition for a receiver and the continuance of the restraining order. The petition will be heard to-day. Mr. Smith says that his creditors will meet Feb. 4, when a compromise will be reached, as those representing 40 per cent, of the claims against him have agreed to this. He places his liabilities at $7,000 and his assets some what less. Judge Taylor also received further pleadings in the case of Emley & Cos. against W. G. Was son and others. The defendants filed their answer and also a cross-complaint, the same facts being alleged in both, but the cross-com plaint calls for a receiver. Mr. Wasson alleges that Emley came to him with false representa tions as to the value of the business. He told him if he would put a small amount of cash ($3,500) into the concern, he could have a half interest by letting his share of the * profits pay for the remainder of the value. After a short experience Wasson found that the business was not such as he had been led to expect Emley then agreed to* his withdrawing, and gave his note for the $3,500. In time, Mr. Wasson says, the note fell due, and he was about to sue upon it when Emley pro posed to organize a joint stock company. Was son, for the $3,500, would be allowed a large share of the $50,000 capital stock, which is said to be far in excess of the value of the plant and its business. He charges that under the management of Emley & Son the company has become insolvent It is also charged that there is a disagreement among the stockholders, there being two alleged boards of directors, one with Emloy as president and the other with Thomas Chandler in that office. At the stock holders’ meeting in January Emley left because he saw the management was going to be taken from him. Wasson states that he has advanced $15,000 to the company, and that his claim is the largest of any. There is a mortgage for $9,000 on the plant. The assets are $20,000, and liabilities $24,000. The question of appointing a receiver will be argued to-dav. CONSIDERATE MR. RENIHAN. He Won’t Talk About Bynum, Prefering Not to Kick a Prostrate Man. “What have you to say in regard to Congress man Bynum?” inquired a Journal reporter yes terday of that unfortunate aspirant for political preferment, the Democratic Irish representative, James Renihan. Mr. Renihan, the whilom geniul funeral di rector, rolled his eyes in retrospection as the shades of his buried hopes passed in review in the mirror of his brain. First came the pallid phantom of the nomination for county auditor, which was given to Thomas H. Litzenberg; next there passed in review the sad shade of the United States marsbalship; and lastly the dis mal specter of the collectorship of customs. Mr. Renihan waß seated in his office, and the ripe perfume of coffin varnish was in the air. “1 don’t care to talk about it,” said the under taker. “I thought,” persisted the interviewer, “you might taKe this occasion to let the public know of the promises Mr. Bynum made to you in your last adventure for office; that he told you that you need not bother to get any one’s name on a petition, just to keep quiet, say nothing, and give him the opportunity to get you appointed collector of customs himself, and thereby make himself solid with the Irish; that instead of this he gave his influence to Mr. Kuhn, and Mr. Kuhn, as a consequence, holds the place that Mr. By num led you to expect would be yours. You see, I know the story. Now, I thought you would like an opportunity to tell the public something of this kind through the columns of the Journal, and no longer allow concealment, like a worm i’ the bud, to gnaw on your damask cheek.” Mr. Renihan shook his head. “No,” said he, “I have nothing to say concerning Mr. Bynum. I don’t care to kick a man when he is down.” Os Course He Won’t Resign. Phil Gapen, who grew weary of waiting for the administration to recognize him and struck ont to seek his fortune in the wilds of Arkan sas, has returned home for a visit of a few days. “Will you tender your resignation as a trustee of the Insane Hospital before returning to Arkan sas?” he was asked by a Journal reporter yester day. “Indeed I will not,” replied Mr. Gapen. “I’m a Democrat, and it’s against the nature of a Democrat to give up an office as long as he can hold it. I claim Indianapolis as my residence, and whenever there is an election I shall be here to vote.” The Sunday-School Meeting. Rev. E. J. Gantz of the Central Christian Church, will conduct the Union Teachers’ Meet ing again this afternoon, at 4 o’clock, in the Y. M. C. A. rooms. This will close the month’s study under Mr. Gantz, who has deeply interest ed his class during the time.
