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

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

up, asd we will see that you have an appoint

had a chance for work at the mills. He said it

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. L. Thompson. A resolu
tion on the death of J. H. Swales, of Logan, a
member of the association, was adopted. The
following officers for the next year were elected:
President, Thomas Nelson, of Bloomingdale;
vice-president, Nixon Henley, of Monrovia; sec
retary. I. J. Farquhar, of Winchester, treasurer,
J. L. Thompson, of Arcana; executive commit

Resolved, That all sheep shall be thoroughbred of
the breed represented. All sheep stubble-shorn, arti
ficially colored, singed or fitted shall be excluded. All
sheep shall be shorn not earlier than April 1, of the
year when shown. 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.

in this city, and responded in the order called.

stage manager. Instrumental and vocal music,
comic songs and dancing, recitations (all orig

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.

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

study under Mr. Gantz, who has deeply interest
ed his class during the time.

GRATEFUL—COMFORTING.
EPPS’S COCOA.
BREAKFAST.
*By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws
which govern the operations of digestion and nutrition,
and by a careful application of the fine prope ties of
well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps has provided our oreak
fast tables with a delicately-fiavored beverage, which
may save us many heavy doctors’ bills. It is by the
judicious use of such articles of diet that a constitu
tion may be gradually built up until strong enough to
resist every tendency to disease. Hundreds of subtle
maladies are floating around us, ready to attack
wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many
a fatal shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with
pure blood and a properly nourished frame.”—Civil

REDUCTION
IN THE
PRICE OF GAS!
Notice to Gas Consumers and
Others.
Yonr attention is called to the marked reduction in
the price of gas, Vhich took effect on the Ist day of
March. The company is now furnishing gas to alt
consumers at SI.BO per 1,000 cubic feet. This price
is certainly with : n the reach of all, for both lighting
and cooking purposes! The convenience and comfort
of cooking by gas, especially during the summer
months, where a fire is not otherwise required, can
only be thoroughly appreciated by those who have had
experience in its useful application for that purpose.
The company has sold for use in this city during th*
last four years a large number of gas stoves and is
satisfied, from the many testimonials from its patrons,
that these stoves "fill a long-felt want. ”
Gasoline Stoves changed to Gas Stoves at a sinaU
expense.
