They Are Tired of Being Called Thieves
andKobbersby Bourbon Congressmen,
And Ilence Refuse Contributions to the Cam
Bpection Bill Passed bj the Senate.
Wealthy Members of the Tarty Refuse Aid
tii the ContrresIonal Committee.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Washington, Sept. 18. A publication
made to-day by the Baltimore Snii, the or
gan of Senator Gorman, eo far as he may
be said to possess one, occasioned some
comment. It was to the effect that the con
tributions to the Democratic congressional
campaign fnnd are disappointingly email.
Hon. Koswell P. Flower, it says, 'was put
at the head of the committee in the belief
that his linancial standing and resources
-would be of value in securing the sinews of
war, without which no contest can be
successfully waged in these mercenary
days. He put into operation , a plan
for securing funds which, it was
thought, would be attended with
success, but the Sun's article says the re
sults have been far from what was ex
pected. Books were placed in the hands of
each Democratic Congressman and candi
date, and thence circulated throughout the
district. They have been pretty generally
returned, and it is stated the names they
contained were fewer than expected and
the sums given also lessj in amount.
It is not known whether these are really,
the facts in the case or that it is intended
as a blind to deceive the Kepnblican man
agers as to tho true state ofaffairs. It is
known that Senator Gorman was disap
pointed with the manner in which
the campaign was conducted for
the Democrats in Speaker Keed's district,
and borne peoplo who ought to know say
that the Sun's story is trne, and intonded
to manifest tho. Senator's disapproval of
the present methods and management of
the Democratic campaign. It is related
that when the collector went to a promi
nent Democratic business man in New York
city, one who hitherto has been noted for
his liberal contributions to the campaign
fund, he declined to subscribe anything.
In answer to tho expressed surprise of the
collector the business man is reported to
have said, in substance: "I think yon have
a good deal of assurance to come to
mo or to others situated as I
am and ask contributions to the campaign
fund. For months Democratic Congress
men have publiclv denounced without any
discrimination the rich men of this coun
try, especially tho manufacturers, as
thieves and robbers. There was no line of
separation observed between classes; every
one who had possession of wealth was the
subject of attack. I am tired of it, and say
, m m -
iranKiy mat no more money 01 mine n
going to aid the election of men wno minK
their duty in Congress requires them to
make that kind of attacks."
Bill Passed by the Senate Providing for In
spectors at Slaughter-Houses. '
Bpeclal to the Indianapolis Journal. '
Washington, Sept. 18. A bill of impor
tance to all the packing-houses of the West
was passed by the Senate to-day, and,
judging from the temper of the House on
the compound lard bill, and on the export
pork inspection bill, it is likely to pass that
body also, as the bill is supported by the
advocates of those two measures. The bill
as passed provides that the Secretary of
Agriculture shall cause to be inspected,
prior to their slaughter, all cattle and hogs
which are the subjects of interstate com
merce, and which are about to be slaugh
tered at slaughter-houses, canning, salt
ing, packing or rendering establish
ments in any State or Territory,
the carcasses or products of which are to
be transported and sold for human con
sumption in any other State or Territory,
and in all cases where the said Secretary
of Agriculture may deem it necessary or
expedient. When on said inspection any
such cattle or hogs are found to be a fleeted
by any disease, or if from any other cause
any of said cattle or hogs are fouud until
for human consumption, the inspector shall,
in the discretion of the Secretary of Agri
culture, an 4 under rules and regulations to
be prescribed by him, order their condem
nation and cause them to be de
stroyed without compensation to
the owner. In addition to this
inspection the Secretary is authorized, in
cases where ho deems it expedient and
necessary, to order a post-mortem inspec
tion of the carcasses of cattle and hogs, and
if found unfit for human food, or un
healthy, they shall bo destroyed, together
with all food products made fropi any part
of such carcasses. Transportation lines
ore forbidden to carry animals, carcasses
or xroducts so condemned, under heavy

Tariff Bill Conferee Make Good Progress
and Hope to Report on Monday.
Washington, Sept. 13. The conferees on
the tariff bill had a two-hours' session this
morning, and, it is reported, made sub
stantial progress. Tho most important
action was the acceptance, by the House
conferees, of the Senate reciprocity amend
ments. The amendments were not -con-considered
in order, but were taken up
here and there, wherever it appeared that
no serious difference of opinion existed and
agreed upon. Biiiding-twirift has not yet
been disposed of. It is understood that the
Senate increases of duties on wines and
spirits have been abandoned by the Senate
members of the conference committee.
The iron and steel and glassware schedules
have not yet been considered. Messrs.
Vance and Mills, of the Democratic con-
itxess, cro not iu the city. In viiw of the
progress made to-day the House conferees
express the opinion that fie bill will be
ready for report by Monday.
The Senators are lirmly fixed in their de
termination to have the Senate sugar
amendment, making the dutiable standard
13 instead of 16, as adopted by the House,
or rise to leave the sngar duties as at pres
ent. Thus far they have -aot succeeded in
inducing the House conferees to yield.
Senator Paddoek Cannot Speak in Indiana.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Washington, Sept. 18. Senator Paddock
has received more than a dozen invitations
to take the stump in Western States and
expound the tariff from a Western stand
point. Chairman Michener, of Indiana,
wired him to-day, insisting that he should
pass through Indiana on his way home and
speak at least twice. Senator Paddock has
been compelled to decline all invitations.
He has had no vacation for ten months,
and has scarcely missed a roll-call in tho
Senate in that time.

Hind-Reader Johnstone Employs It in the
Difficult Feat of Opening a Safe.
Chicago, Sept. 18. Paul Alexander John
stone, the mind-reader, whose recent feat of
picking a name out of the register at the
Grand Hotel, after a long drive blindfolded
through crowded streets, attracted such
wide attention, performed another feat to
day, which, to all appearances, totally dis
proves the theory that man possesses only
live 6enses, and also the belief that mind
reading is really a species of muscle-reading.
J ohnstone opened a difficult combina
tion safe In the presence of many well
known people, at the Wellington Hotel,
and under the following remarkaL'e cir
cumstances: He was first blindfolded and
the bandages thoroughly examined by a
committee. His ears were packed with
cotton, so it was impossible for him
to hear; then his nostrils were simi
larly filled , to destroy, for .the time
being, the sense of smell, and finally his
hands were covered with thick kid gloves
to disprove the theory of muscle reading.
In his mouth he held a lighted cigar, so
that even the sense of taste was tempor
arily destroyed. The proprietors and
book-keeper of the hotel then took a posi
tion behind him, and while Johnstone
turned tho knob of the safe they wore re
quested to think of the combination.
Without touching either of the gentlemen,
the mind-reader turned correctly to the
numbers and swung the door open. The
crowd which witnessed the act cheered
him repeatedly.
Johnstone declares that his idea in open
ing the safe under such peculiar conditions
was simply to prove that man actually
possesses more than five senses, and that
science is in error. In conversation the
mind-reader couples his performance to
day as in some respects comparing in im
portance to tho scientific world with the
discovery of the circulation of the blood
or the law of gravitation.
A Rabbi Who Doe3 Not Believe in Gentiles Be
coming Jews in Order to Marry.
Chicago, Sept. 18. 'The Jews,both ortho
dox and those of the modern school, take
little stock in the so-called conversions to
the Hebrew faith, such as this case of
lawyer Vere Hunt," remarked Rabbi E. G.
Hirsch, in answer to the inquiries of a re
porter to-day. "In almost every instance
the confession of faith is made by one of
two parties about to be united in matri
mony, and is not accompanied by motives
of sincerity. Every such case that has come
within my knowledge has been the out
come of differences existing between the
prospective groom and the bride's parents,
l ean readily see how a young man falling
in love with a pretty Jewess can resolve to
take upon himself the responsibility of be
coming ( a believer in . the He
brew faith. , Our chnrch, however, does
not wish 6nch additions, and the
fact that matrimony is the real end m view
should debar the applicant But we are
not so strict nowadays as we used to bo. Tho
old laws state that the candidate must be
warned of the responsibilities of becoming
a Jew, and must be refused, even if he per
sists, until finally it becomes fully apparent
that he is determined to join the faith."
"Then these converts do not as a rule
work to advance the interests of tho Jewish
"Not that I know of. We believe that
any well meaning man who lives morally,
be he Jew or gentile, will be entitled to all
of the blessings of tho hereafter. Therefore,
should a man of good repute come to me and
state that ho wanted to become a Jew to
marry a certain young lady I would accept
him upon profession of faith. Tho cere-",
mony, however, is useless, and the adoption
of a new or Jewish name is nonsensical."
lie Commends Their Organizations, and Gives
, Some Good Advice Department Work.
Columbus, O., Sept 18. There were 45,000
people in attendance at the State fair to-day.
A feature was the presence of ex-Gov. J. M.
Rusk, Secretary of Agriculture. He deliv
ered an address on the grounds this after
noon, and. after being introduced by ex
President Haves, among other things, said
he congratulated the farmers upon the de
velopment of agricultural organizations,
justified their determination to no longer
be satisfied with comparisons of the ad
Vantage they now enjoy with tho privi
leges enjoyed by their sires, but to in
sist on the full share with their city
brothers in the general prosperity to which
they contribute so much. He warned
them, however, not to expect impossible
results from legislative action, and advised'
6uch conservatism in the formulation of
their plans of action as would surely enlist
public opinion on their side, which is es
sential to success in a country where the
majority must always rule. He cautioned
the farmer, while tirmly maintaining his
own rights, to respect those of all other
classes of workers, and to seek the accom
plishment of bis plan rather within than
by antagonizing existing political parties.
Lastly, he pledged to the farmers tho
hearty co-operation and aid of the De
partment of Agriculture, whose work ho re
ferred to brielly, laying special stress, how
ever, upon the pure-food question, the con
trol and extirpation of animal disoases,
taking occasion in this connection to de
clare his personal conviction that pleuro
pneumonia is practically eradicated from
Auiericau soil, and calling attention
to the aggressive work of the
department in its efiorts to free
Auiericau stock interests and meat
production from the unjust stigma cast
upon its wholesomeness by foreign govern

ments. Tho course adopted by the depart
ment in this respect he believes destined to
succeed in either securing the withdrawal
of these unjust accusations or furnishing
good grounds for retaliatory measures.
He also referred to the extension of facil
ities for gathering and distributing reliable
statistical information, which, he points
out will be keeping the American farmers
posted as to foreign supply and demand,
and the condition of our,, own crops and
markets will prevent his being imposed
upon by the speculators and dealers, who
do not hesitate to resort to exaggeration,
and even misrepresentation, in order that
they may thrive on his losses. He con
cluded by declaring the struggle for agri
cultural victory to-day to be no less
arduous or vital than Jho struggle for
national supremacy in the past.

The Agricnltoral Board Wonld Do a Good Thing
by Seeking Other Grounds for a StateFair.
Nelson A. Randall, editor of the Western
Sportsman, was talking about horse-racing'
and kindred matters the other day.; 'Our :
State Board of Agriculture," remarked . Mr.
Randall, "has too much money tied up in,
the fair grounds property, and the ground ,
is, even with the addition recently made,
much too small. That property should be
sold, and the monoy it wonld bring would
purchase four times as much ground
and leave 8100,000 cash in hand. I know
what I am talking about for I - have been '
looking about recently and know that the'
board can get good property near the city,
which could have not only street-car, but :
steam communication.. What this city
greatly needs is a mile track, for racing
purposes. Such a track could be used dur
ing State fair week, and besido that would
be in demand twice a year for race meet
ings. See what a mile track and the inter
est taken in horses has dono for Terre
Haute. It has been worth not less than'
$500,000 . a ver to that city and cbuuty.
The stock in the Terre Haute
association can not be bought to
day for 300 on the $100. Cambridge
City has a mile track and two
race meetings a year. This is the only live
interest in that town the horse business
and to Mr. John Lackey more than to any'
one else is due its establishment and mam-f
tenance. Purses of 1,000 and $1,500 are
oil'ered. They have good racing, and
crowds of peoplo are attracted there. Rash
ville is another place where interest is
.taken in racing and breeding. A .great
many people look no further than the races,'
bnt the breeding of horses is, of course, be
hind it all. and there is where the money is.
Ru6hville has a mile track and a half-mile
track, and the breeding of horses is largely
the business of the county. This in
terest brings many thousands of dollars to
Rush county each year. s
"Indianapolis," continued Mr. Randall,
"has a location that would make her, with
a good mile track, one of the best places in
the United States for race meetings. There
ought to be some way of awakening tho
State Board of Agriculture and the citi
zens of Indianapolis to the importance of
this subject There is no other State fair
association in the United States that pays
as little attention to advertising s annual
show as this one. A few thousand premium
lists are sent out and a number of pictures
of a cirl on horseback, and that's all. As
to the half-mile track at tho exposition,
while it Is nicely shaped, it is full of stones
from the size of a quail's egtf up to 6tones
as big as a man's fist They pay no atten
tion to the track uutil within a short time
before the State fair opens, whereas, to
have a good track, as any horseman will
tell you, constant oversight is necessary."
It Is Believed the Old Gentleman Destroyed It
He and His Son Were Never Reconciled. .
The search for the will of the late Wil
loughby H. Reed still continues. The con
viction has forced itself upon some of those
interested that Mr. Reed destroyed the
document. According to its provisions
the widow was to receive only $00 per
month, but there is reason to believe that
after an interview with one of the
young men to whom he offered to sell
the laundry, he became dsssatistied with
his bequest to his wife. He had but three
f daces to keep his papers his room, the
aundry office on North Illinois street, and
the satety deposit vault. Mr. Collin, the
executor, maintains that there is a will,
and thinks if he had seen Mr. Reed in time
the mystery would have been explained.
He was sent for to go to Mr. Reed's bed
side on urgent business, bnt on reaching
there his death had occurred.
. It is well known that Mr. Reed was at
variance with, his son. The trouble
occenred in the days of his
great wealth in Philadelphia, where
he was interested in several large corpora
tions. The son displeased the father, who
managed to have him drafted into the
army, tho war being tbtn in progress.
Young Reed learned of the circumstance,
but went into the service with a deteimi
nation to prove a good soldier. He came
out with the rank of major, speedily found
business and fortune in New York city,
and is now enjoying a large income as ship
ping commissioner.. He and his fathor
never becamo reconciled.
Fell Under Car Wheel.
Wesley Finn, twenty-two years of ago,

by falling nnder a train. He was steal

An Unprovoked Murder.
Coroner Wagner completed his investi

The Company .Preparations to Accommo
date the Great. Crowds Kext Week.
The Citizens' Street-railroad Company is
busy with plans to handle the crowds which
will be attracted to the city next week by
the State fair. I expect," said Superin
tendent Steele, to a Journal reporter, yes
terday, "that the city will have the great
est numborof visitors next week that wero
over here, at least at a State fair. We are
better prepared to. handle the crowds
than ever before, and, if nec
essary, will run cars at one minute
intervals on the Pennsylvania and Central
avenue lines. This will require fifty-seven
cars, as it takes fifty-seven minutes, with
out delays, to make the round trip from the
Union Station to the grounds and back. It
is either a feast or a famine, in our busi
ness, butl think we will manage to accom
modate the people. Our highest receipts
of a day during the last fair showed that
we carried over sixty-two thousand peo
ple." : Mr. Steele said also that extra cars would
be placed on the West Washington-street
line, as the fair also brings hundreds who
have friends at the Insane Hospital.
Any other line that visitors fre
quent will be supplied with extra ac
commodations. The company's officials
believe that tho Illinois electric line will
prove so much of an attraction to the vis
itors that its utmost capacity will be test
ed with the regular schedule. They have)
therefore abandoned the idea entertained
for awhile, of running trailers as far as
Seventh street, and thence drawing them
with mules to the fair grounds. Fifty new
mules have been purchased, and are
being used this week to harden
them to their work. The large
amount of extra work to be done will re
quire the mules to make twenty-five miles
per day, instead of eighteen, the average
runs, but tho teams will he given a rest
after every run. At such a time as the
State fair both men and beasts are re-
3uired to exert every effort to accommo
ato the people. A large number of now
men are receiving instructions in prepara
tion for the arduous week.
Superintendent Steele speaks in warm
praise of the patience shown by the Irving
ton people while they are deprived of their
new electric line, and says that he hopes to
have the storage cars running by to-morrow
night, or surely by Sunday morning.
The delay Las been caused, he says, by the
contractor and not by the company.

tho discharge of George Callahan, met with
Superintendent Steele and Secretary An
derson yesterday morning. President Shaf
fer being absent in St. Louis. The com
plaints against Foreman MadUon and the
situation as regards Callahan wero set
forth by Conductor Newfiouse, chairman of
the committee. No demand for. tho rein
statement of Callahan was made, but
a request was urged for an investigation
of the complaints. Superintendent Steele
informed a Journal reporter that the meet
ing was marked by tho friendliest spirit
He is convinced, he says, that' the associa
tion has the interests of the company in
viow, as well as its own. He judges this
from the refusal to take up the cases of
some members who were discharged for
cause. In the Callahan case the meeting
in the morning had doveloped nothing, ex
cept that Callahan's stories to the associa
tion and to the company did not agree. It
was decided to continue the investigation
till this afternoon, when President Shali'er
will be homo and rcady to meet the com
mittee. The witnesses in the case have
Superintendent Steele's assurance that they
will be protected from discharge as a result
of any testimony against Madison they
may give.
There was a large audience at the Grand
Opera-house last night to welcome Frank
Daniels in "Littlo Puck." His character
ization of Packingham Giltedge is well
known here, and there is little to bo written
about it that has not already been said, ex
cent, possibly, that it improves with age.
Mr. Daniels retains all his droll manner
isms, and tho andience last night
laughed as heartily at them as it was pos
sible for. an audience to laugh. There is
something irresistibly funny in his walk,
and the old, familiar gestures which first
delighted the public iu "The Rag Baby"
are as mirth-provoking as ever. Old Sport
lives again in Packingham Giltedge, and
nobody would have it otherwise. Mr.
Daniels's humor is ulike that of
any other comedian. His methods are
different, and can never be successfully
imitated, hence the public will never be
surfeited with him.,. No refersnce to the
comedy is necessary, for it is familiar to
the Indianapolis public. The specialties,
however, are new and taking, and most of
them were recalled. Several new songs
and choruses are introduced. Mr. Daniels
is ably seconded in his efforts to
furnish an evening of fun by Bessie
Sanson as Miranda. Her song, "1 Whistle
and Wait for Katie." was encored, as was
the dno between her and Mr. Daniels,
"This Little Pig Went to Market." The
latter song is the one which DeWolf Hop
per and Delia Fox popularized in New
York, recently, in "Castles in the Air." The
company supporting Air. Dauiels tills
the . requirements of tho piece.
Messrs. Moulton, Morris, Wood and
Ijvans are clever in their parts, and Mor
ris's rendition of the Italian fruit-vender'
song is the best yet heard . here. "Little
Puck" will be repeated this evening, and
two performances will be given to-morrow.
The diagram of seats of Tomlinson Hall
will be exposed at the Grand Opera-house
at 10 o'clock this morning, and the sale of
tickets for the Strauss Orchestra concerts
will begin. There will not bo much choice
between the entertainments, as the pro
grammes are all carefully made un and
comprise many choice selections. Danco
music, of course, will predominate in all of
them, but a number of popular pieces will
be introduced. The sale will be continued
at the Grand until the concert dates.
"Siberia," Bartley Campbell's elaborate
spectacular melodrama, that will be pro
duced at the Grand Opera-house all next
week, has not been seen in Indianapolis for
several seasons. According to all accounts
aud the claims made by the management, ,
the play is being given with greater suc
cess this season than ever before. The
company has been playing in Philadelphia,
and tho audiences have been limited only
by the capacity of the theater. The sale of
seats will begin to-morrow morning.
"Mr. Barnes of New York," which is to be
presented at English's during the coming
week, is meeting with mnch success in tho
East. Large audiences have enjoyed the
performances, and the management has rea
son to think that the play will surpass its
record of last season. Manager Sanger
claims to have greatly improved the com
pany as well as the scenic effects of the
piece. The advance salo of seats will begin
to-morrow morning.
A Subject to Which a Joint Meeting of Four
Committees Gave Favorable Attention.
Four special committees met at the Build
ers' Exchange Hall last night to discuss the
proposition to organize a mechanics' insti
tute on a broad basis. They represented
the Board of Trade, Commercial Club,
Builders Exchange and the Mechanics' In
stitute as it now exists. Otto Stechban
was chosen chairman of the meeting, which
was taken in charge by tho committee from
the institute. It was explained that the
institute has been in operation for five
years, but that its financial support has
been derived from membership fees. It
is the desire to place it upon a different
basis whereby a fund may be guaranteed
for the employment of an additional corps
of instructors. To accomplish this it was
thought best to apply directly to the man
ufacturers of the city, as they are the most
interested. The committee laid considera
te stress on the fact that the appeal is not
to be considered in the light of charity,
but as the result of a growing need in tho
The committee from the institute was au
thorized to prepare a printed circular, set
ting forth its proposition, a copy of
which will be mailed to each manu
facturer in the city. To facilitate this
work Chairman Stechban was authorized
to appoint a committee, which will proba
bly be composed of . one hundred citizens,
to visit the manufacturers personally.
Further action was deferred until a meet
ing which is to be held in the Board of
Trade Hall at a date to be fixed by the
chairman. At that time the whole matter
will be considered in detail.
Opening of Professional Schools.
The School of Pharmacy of Purdue Uni
versity, which opened five years ago with
five students, has opened its present term
with seventy-fivo students.
The Indiana Dental College will open
Oct 1. Last year this college, in practical
exemplification of its work, expended SC00
in dental material used upon poor people.
This amount does not include anything
for the professors who performed the work.
This year it is proposed to do twice the
amount of this kind of work, and physi
cians will bo asked to send patients who
require dental work and are unable to pay
for it to the college as suhjects for clinics.
The law school of DePauw University, of
which Mr. A. L. Mason is dean, will have a
number of lectures from jurists and law
yers of this city during the term. Among
these lecturers are Judges Byron K. Elliott
and J. A. S. Mitchell, of the Supreme Court,
Mr. W. P. Fishback. Mr. Johu L. Griffiths,
Mr. John A. Finch and Mr. Charles N.
Thompson. Mr. Wm. F. Elliott has been
employed by the university as a special
lecturer on "Pleading. Practice and Ad
Pussy Wants a Corner."
