The Liquor-License Case of John Stehlin
Before Juilc Ilowland and a Jury.
A Venire That Brought in a Few Prohibition
istA Decree from Justice Harlan Other
Points of Litigation Docket Notes.
The proceedings to get John Stehlin. saloon-keeper,
ont of the Second ward were
begun hefore Judge Ilowland yesterday on
appeal from the County Commissioners.
'Ihe latter, in face of a remonstrance
signed by seven hundred or eight hundred
citizens of the ward, granted Stehlin a li
cense, and they nave been so mad abont it
that if the Circuit Court goes against them
they will take the questions involved be
fore the Supreme judges. The well-known
Prohibitionist. Captain Kittcr, is a citizen
of the Second ward, and he and S. O. Pick
ens have charge of the caee on behalf of
the remonstrators. Stehlin. it is alleged, is
not a fit person to sell liquor, and npon that
point most of the testimony is to be ottered.
There was a little trouble in procuring a
jury yesterday afternoon, the opinions of
some two or three on tho venire being ad
Verse to anybody selling liqnor, no matter
what their rights under the law might be.
When George 1$. Sullivan came forward to
be examined as to his fitness to serve as a
juror, Stenlin's attorneys, Louis Newberger
and Capt. James 15. Curtis, dropped him as
if he was satan in disguise. Sullivan said
it would not do to put him on the jury, as
he would decide against the saloon-keeper,
no matter what facts as to character might
be produced. He was a Prohibitionist, and
lid not think it morally or legal
ly right for any. one to sell
liquor. Attorney Kilter would have liked
it had Sullivan not been 6oopen in ex
pressing his convictions- Sylvanus Hol
iingsworth. of Pike township, said it was
possible for a man to have- a good moral
character when he applied for a liquor
license, but he could not have one if he re
mained in the business. D. G. Kobmson,
of Wayne township, was not so blunt in
bis expressions, but he coincided with Mr.
Hollingsworth, and added that hfl.was un
alterably opposed to the liquor traffic.
Joseph A. Brown admitted that it would
not be just the thing for him to go on the
jury, as ho was one of the seven hundred
or eight hundred who had signed
the remonstrance. After these four
vrcre excused the case went to
Trial with the following jurors:
John Borger, John B. Sullivan, Colonel
Koss. John Sargent. Asa Newhouso, John
3 wails. Win. A. Avery, G. L. Edwards,
Thomas II. S. Peck. Henry Orbenson, Rich
ard Arnold, J. D. Marshall.
The court did not get very far into the
testimony before adjournment, but what
was ottered came from tho Stehlin side.
The questions pertained mostly to the
character of the places Stehlin hadkept be
fore he went into the Second ward. His
allowing card and pool-ulaying for drinks
seemed to be the chief point tho prosecu
tion wanted brought out.
The Rank Gets the Elevator.
A decree was filed in the Circuit Court
yesterday by Justice Harlan, of the United
States Supreme Court, sitting as a circuit
Judge, in the matter of the petition of tho
First National Bank of Indianapolis in the
sase of John D. Probst vs. the Indianapolis,
Decatur &. Springfield Railway Company.
The bank claims the rent of en elevator
from May 10, 1SSS. Justice Harlan orders
that Sands &, Pierce, trustees in the mort
gage of the I., D. fc S., surrender possession
of the elevator and the land appurtenant
thereto to the receiver of the court, upon
the demand of said receiver, and that the
receiver immediately thereafter surrender
possession to the First National Bank of In
dianapolis. The order is without prejudice
to any right which the I., D. fc W., or trus
tees in said mortgage of Dec. 31, 1875, may
have in or to the elevator, or to the land
appurtenant thereto.
Trustees Do Not Like the Pastor.
The trustees of Lovely Lane Church do
not want to receive the pastor Bishop Lo-
max, of the A. M. E. Church, recently sent
them. Ho is Thomas J. Manson, and the
doors of the church have been locked
against him. The difficulty is a continu
ance of that which disturbed the congrega
tion last year, when the pastor of that time
had trouble with a woman, a member of the
church. Mr. Manson's presence, it was
thought, would bring the congregation to
gether again. He has brought suit in the
Superior Court to compel tho trustees to re-
Parly Settlement Kxpected.
The Supreme Court yesterday ordered the
street-paving case advanced on the docket,
and it will be set for oral argument at an
early day. The prospect of a speedy settle
ment of this question, so important to the
city and in which the pnblic is vitally in
terested, is therefore good.
Notes from the Dockets.
Duano II. Bowles, Jobn J. Cotton and
John Jerome were admitted to the Superior
and Circuit Court bars yesterday..
Rhoda White yesterday filed a complaint
against Beuj. I . and Jennie White. The
plaintiff is the aged woman whose condi
tion of mind was in controversy in the Cir-.
cult Court some months ago. and whose
guardianship gave rise to much litigation. ,
She is now suing to have a deed given by
her to defendants set aside.
A jnrv In the Criminal Court yesterday
heard the testimony relative to the charge
of perjury against Mrs. Vincent, white, who
is accused of testifying falsely in the
Mayor's court. No verdict "was returned at
a late hour last night. Thero is a like
chargo against Noah Moore, colored, to bo
tried. It arises out of tho same case.
The Kaplan damage suit against George
W. Stout, before Judge Taylor, was inter
rupted yesterday morning by the defend
ant being taken violently sick in tho court
room. A doctor was summoned, and under
the application of a hypodermic injection
Mr. Stout recovered snlliciently to be taken
home. The case was resumed in the after
noon. The Court Record. x

Kiliott, J. Complaint that nppellant issued
to plaintiff a policy of insurance covering
live years; that in payment of the premium
the appellee gave part cash and balance by
a note. It further appears that appellant
brought suit on the note and the judgment
was stayed, but paid in October, The
property insured was destroyed by tiro in
August, 1SST. The policy provided that if
the assured failed to pay the preminm note
at tho time specified the policy was to b5
void during tho time it remained unpaid,
and no legal action on tho part of the com
pany to enforce payment should be con
strued as reviving the policy. The pay
ment of the premium, however, revived the
policy and made it good for the balance of
tlie term. Held: That the acceptance of the
premium after the loss Lad occurred was a
waiver of the right to declare a forfeiture
of the policy .and not a mere act of revivor.
The fact that all of tho property insured
was not destroyed does not affect the ques

Edwin F. Gould's Indiscreet Editing Causes
II is Arrest for Criminal Libel
Edwin F. Gould, whoso notoriety rests on
his sponsorship of the infamons "dollar-a-day"
lie of the las'; campaign, was arrested
by Constable Glass yesterday afternoon for
criminal libel. The affidavit which led to the
arrest was sworn to by Leonidas G. Dynes,
editor and publisher of the Indianapolis
Gazette. The libel was committed in
a paper known as the Union, issued
under the nominal auspices of the
Knights of Labor. and edited by
Tioald. It was started shortly after tho
Republican county convention on the
order of the Knights of Labor. Gould says,
and has now reached the sixth week of its
existence. The paper is printed in the
office of the Sentinel Printing Company.
The oflensive language, as set forth in tho
affidavit drawn up by Deputy Prosecutor
Fessler, is taken from an editorial headed
Rough on Rats," in which prevarication,
perjury, bribery and various other infrac
tions of good morals are charged airainst tho
editor of the Gazette. The epithets follow
a tirade against the Gazette for alleged
disrespectful roferenco in its columns to
the Knights of Labor celebration of Labor
day; and also for not employing union
labor. There were 1,800 copies of this issue
of the Union printed, but the Sentinel
Printing Company, on seeing the nature of
the attack on Mr. Dynes, suppressed all
but about two hundred copies, which had
already left the office.
A Journal reporter asked Gould for a
statement, as he was awaiting the arrival
of bondsmen in the court-room of Justice
of the Peace Smock and received tho reply
that he had none to make. ' Heproceedeato
say, however, that he was trying to get back
at the Gazetto for its statements concern
ing the Knights of Labor festivities on
Labor day. Gould then, turned to Mr.
Fessler and manifested much more interest
in ascertaining from him how much it
would take to settle the case
on a plea ot guilty. He said he was not
guilty, but he had often seen parties ac
cused of offenses in the Mayor's court plead
guilty and pay a tine rather than stand
trial, with ail the incidental worry and
trouble. At this time disappointment bad
resulted from afailuro to attract bonds
men to the office by telephone, and Gould
had anxiously besought the court to re
duce the bond trom $500. the amount al
ready fixed, Mr. Fessler declined to act as
court and prosecutor, too, and referred him
to the justice of the peace, with the state
ment that be must first confer with Mr.
Dynes's attorney, Mr. Hooker, before he
could offer the court advice on the subject.
Bnt shortly after a bondsman was obtained,
E. M. Johnson, chief deputy in the auditor's
office, becoming surety for Gould's appear
ance for trial.
Note Given to a Former Partner the Cause of
the Assignors Immediate Embarrassment.
Tho late Willoughby II. Reed owned a
store of gentlemen's furnishing goods at
No. 13North Illinois street, and somemonths
.before his death sold it to Edward F. Wals
man and Edward P. Roll. In course , of
time tho partners had difficulties that
brought about a dissolution, Walsman pur
chasing Roll's interest. Mr. Reed became the
indorscr of the purchaser, and affairs
went aloug quietly, Mr. Walsman ap
parently doing an excellent business, until
ono of tho notes given to Mr. Roll, calling
for $700, began to trouble him. An exten
sion had been given on it, but this was
about to expire, and Mrs. Reed, adminis
tratrix of her late husband's estate, did
not, in view of the missing Reed will, feel
like assuming tho responsibility of another
extension. With the will undiscovered,
she could not take such a step without the
consent of Mr. Reed's son, who is in the
East. Mr. Walsman, therefore, decided to
maku an assignment for the benefit of his
creditors, Harry R. Springsteen becoming
the assignee. Tho assets .involved are
about $1,500, as against $4,000 liabilities.
Tho latter are, with tho exception of 700,
due the Reed estate, and some of that
paper has not yet matured. The other
creditors are furnishing goods dealers in
the East, and Norton fc McFee, lawyers in
this city. A chattel mortgapo for 100 in
favor of tho lawyers was filed with tho
papers of assignment. Another mortgage,
signed on tho loth of this month, for 31.000,
was alao filed, this being given to Mrs.
Reed and operating as a prior lien on the
property. It is to secure a noto for-S'-iW)
given by Walsman to Reed, July 19, th;s
year, and the indorsement on tho paper
due Roll.

Grapes Plenty but l'eache Scarce.
There are plenty of grapes in tho market,
bnt that fruit is about the only one that is
arriving in sufficient quantities to make the
price within tho reach of people of ordinary
means. The sales of grapes this week by
the Indianapolis commission-houses have
been very large, ono firm alone having dis
posed, up to last night, of 5,000 baskets.
The quality is very fine, there never having
been better Concords and Dela wares in this
market. The former range from 4 to
cents per pound and the latter from 7 to 7?
cents. Reaches are very scarce, and seem
likely to continue 60. The California are
selling at $2 a box, and a box contains a
third of a bushel. The others range from
CO to 'JO cents a peck basket, ana there are
few of them on hand.

New Railroad Enterprises In Northern Indi
ana The Outlook Not Encouraging.
A gentleman from the northern part of tho
State, who was in the city yesterday, and
who has taken a good deal of interest for
years in railroad matters, states that tho
outlook for the three roads projected across
northern Indiana is not very Mattering.
One of the roads projected is known as the
Wabash-Chicago line. An impression has
gone out that the Wabash company is
pushing the project, but an official said to
the Journal's informant, this week, that
the Wabash was not interested in it, and
had no money 1o build a road with. The
company that proposes to build the line, he
added, was not overloaded with money. A
second is the Toledo & Chicago Air-line.
The projectors of this line have been prom
ised money from three different sources,
but each time the capitalists have not dono
as they agreed in the matter. Goshen. Ind..
has voted a subsidy to the enterprise, but
in all other townships where elections have
been held the vote was against giving aid.
The third is tho Lake Shoro project, and
this gentleman this week received a letter
from Mr. John Newell, who states that this
link from Fayetto, on the old Canada
Southern line, across to tho Battle Creek
road, just east of Goshen, would doubtless
be built. Much of the distance was graded
beforo the Lako Shore purchased the Can
ada Southern right of way, over which line
this link will be built. The Toledo &. Chi
cago Air-line people proposo to build from
Toledo to Chicago; the Wabash-Chicago
company from Angola, Ind., to Chicago.
The E. & T. II. and the Car-Service Rules.
Traffic Manager G rammer, of the Evans
ville & Terre Hauto road, assigns as a rea
son for the E. &. T. II. withdrawing from
the Indiana Car-service Association that
the Vandalia was not living up to the rules
of the organization at Terre Haute. WThy
the shortcomings of the Vandalia at that
point should place the E. & T. Hat a dis
advantage is not stated. The two roads
are certainly not competitors at that point..
In this connection a statement of the bene
fits that car-servico associations are to tho
roads will not be amiss, as shown in a rq
port compiled by E. E. Hill, secretary of
the National Association of Car-service
Managers. The statement shows tho opera
tions of twentv-two demurrage associa
tions for May, June and July of this year.
It appears that 1,220,550 cars wero handled
by the twenty-two associations in opera
tion during the quarter, the average deten
tion per car being one and ono-half day.
, Statistics show the average detention of
cars, before the associations went into
operation, to have been over four days in
the East and six to eight days in the West,
Placing the general avenage at five days
per car, which is no doubt a fair estimate,
the different associations have reduced the
general average detention CS per cent.
P., C, C. & St. L. Consolidation Completed.
Philadelphia, Sept. 18. The Pittsburg,
Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad
Company was to-day formed by merger
and consolidation of the Pittsburg, Cincin
nati & St. Louis; the Chicago, St. Louis fc
Pittsburg, the Jefferson ville, Madison &
Indianapolis, and the Cincinnati & Rich
mond. The lines heretofore operated by
those companies will, on and after Oct. 1,
1800, be operated by the new organization.
The following officers were elected: Geo.
B. Roberts, president, office, Philadelphia; J.
N. McCullough. first vice-presideDt, office at
Pittsburg; James McCrea, second vice
president, af Pittsburg; Thomas D. Messier,
third vice-president and comptroller, at
Pittsburg; John E. Davidson, treasurer, at
Pittsburg; S. B. Liggett, secretary, at
Pittsburg; Stephen W. White, assistant
secretary, at Philadelphia; Joseph Wood,
general manager, at Pittsburg; E. B. Tay
lor, general superintendent of transporta
tion, at Pittsburg; John F. Miller, general
superintendent, at Columbus, O.
U" Personal, Local and General Notes.
II. C. Diehl, general manager of the In
terstate Dispatch, was in the city yester
day. The death of Dr. D. J. Holland, of Atchi
son, makes vacant the position of assistant
chief surgeon on tho Missouri Pacific, sys
tem. A Cleveland paper revives the report that
Chairman Goddard, of the Western Passen
ger Association, will, on Oct. 1, become
general manager of the Lake Shoro road.
Complaint is made that tho Wabash is
neglecting its local traffic to look after its
through business. Possibly this accounts
for the decrease in earnings shown from
week to week of late.
Anew position was created on the Big
Four yesterday, that of general foreman of
shop braidings and repairs on tho whole
system. G. W. Markly, of Peoria, was ap
pointed to the position.
' C. B. Couch has been appointed purchas
ing agent of the Lako Shore road, vice L.
C. Higgins, deceased. Mr. Couch, until his
health failed, some months ago, was super
intendent of the eastern division of tho
Lake Shore road.
The August bulletin of the Voluntary Re
lief Department of tho Pennsylvania lines
west of. Pittsburg, shows that 810,750 was
disbursed in death benefits during. the
month, and' $10,742.15 in disablement bene
fits; total disbursements. $21,492.15.
Since the results of the harvest excur
sions of Sept. 9 have been footed up they
aro highly satisfactory, nearly every road
carrying more peoplo than on any harvest
excursion in former years. The Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy got SlOO.000 out of
tho business.
W. W. Watson, chief train-dispatcher of
tho Grand Rapids & Indiana railroad, was
discharged yerday. No reason was
given for the sudden dismissal. Mr. Wat
son has held tho position for many years,
and is highly respected in Fort Wayne,
where his headquarters were.
It is stated that tho transfer of the Cin
cinnati. Saginaw & Mackinac road to the
Grand Trunk has been completed, and it is
the intention of the Grand Trunk people to
extend tho road to Mackinac in 1801. Tho
road now operated extends from Durand
north to bagiuaw and Bay City.
The Lake Erie & Western road paid to
Grant Hall, an employe who lost a leg in a
coll ision last fall, $3,000. and has civen him
the position of flagman on one ot the streets
the road crosses at Lafayette. The colli
sion was caused through the carelessness of
tho company's train dispatcher.

lines use it on shipments of freight West.
Since Sept. 1, when the order to cut down
txpenses on the Pennsylvania lines west of
Pittsburg went into effect, 700 men have
been dropped from the pay-rolls, and the
shors are running but nine hours. Still,
the business of tho road is now tho heaviest
in its history, and largely local, which pays

says the new cotton will begin to movo
Last briskly about Oct. 1.
John Sloan, roadraaster of the Peoria di
vision of the Big Four, has returned from
the annual meeting and reports the attend
anca to have been large and tho sessions
very interesting. Many matters of iinnor
tance were discussed, and much valuable
information given. The next meeting will
be held in -Minneapolis in September, 1601.
The announcement is made of the sale of
the Milwaukee & Northern road to the
Chicago, Milwaukeo , St, Paul company,
which will take possession on Oct, 1. The
stock amouuts to SC.000.000, and is worth
not far from 100 cents ou the dollar. The
actual amount of cash involved in the
transaction is a little in excess of $5,000,000.
On Wednesday night there were nearly
seven hundred car-loads of freight on the
Louisville, New Albany &. Chicago road to
be moved which came under the head of
local business. Superintendent Ewan
hopes, by tho throwing of their through
business over the Indianapolis division and
the J., M. iV I. road, that beforo the week
ends tho delayed freights will be well
cleared up.
The passenger department of tho Big Four
is credited with publishing the lurgest and
most complete passenger rate sheet yet is
sued by any road. Rates to nil points in
I the States and Territories! East and West,
2 I
North and South, are given, and so ar
ranged that it is but a moment's trouble to
name a rate to tho most distant point in
the United States.
When Assistant General Manager Bar
nard, of tho Big Four, made the contract
for the heavy ten-wheel passenger engines
which the company has received in the last
ninety diys, the Brooks Locomotive-works
Company contracted that theso engines
should haul ten cars, five of . them Wagner
sleeping-cars, from Cincinnati to Indianap
olis in three hours, stopping once for water.
Several of the engines have already dono
this without any extra effort, seemingly,
and the engineers are of opinion that they
will haul twelve cars and make that time.
The traffic over the Peoria fc Pekin road
is now the heaviest in its history, but M.
('onners, the new superintendent, form
erly with tho C, H. & I., is handling it in
a manner which surprises tho manage
ments of the roads that haul their business
into and out of Peoria over it. Heretofore,
when business was heavy, blockades have
been tho rule; now everything moves like
clock work, and delayed business is un
known. Jerome Fry. a freight conductor, has
been promoted to fill the place of Harvey
Rrokaw on the Pennsylvania line, who was
discharged last week. Harvey had been run
ning between Richmond and Fort Wayno
for twenty years. A belief prevails with
the older passeng'er conductors on the Penn
sylvania lines west of Pittsburg that they
are all to be dismissed in tho near future,
and many of them are quietly looking
about to en cace m business which will be
of a more permanent character than is rail
roading at the present day.
D. B. Martin, general passenger agent of
the Big Four, was in the city yesterday.
and arranced for the changes in the ticket
offices at this point which will take otiect
Oct. 1. On that dato Maj. George Butler
will retire as city ticket agent at tho South
Illinois-strejut office, and will be succeeded
by DeWitt C. Drake, of tho up-town offic.e;
Samuel Hice, chief clerk of H. M. Bronson,
assistant coneral passonger agent, will
take Mr. Drake's position in tho tip-town
office. The arrangement now is that As
sistant General Passenger Agent Bronson
shall remove his office from the Ingalls
Block to the company's otlico, at the corner
of Washington and Meridian streets.
The Chicago Herald says that tho South
western Railway and Steamship Association
is now being organized, and J. F. Goddard is
to become its chairman, with headquarters
probably at Chicago. The association will
bo formed of all lines from St. Louis and
Kansas City to the Southwest. This 1 will
cover the Missouri Pacific system. Southern
Pacific lines in Texas and Louisiana, the
Atchison properties in the Southwest and a
number of smaller roads. The new associa
tion is a pet scheme of Jay Gould, CP.
Huntington and Allen Manvel, of the At
chison system, and the determination to
form tho association and make Mr. Goddard
chairman was reached during one of Presi
dent Manvel's recent visits to New York.
The dissatisfied stockholders of the Illi
nois Central railroad held a meeting at
Hartford, Conn., yesterday. A special
committee consisting of Francis B. Cooley.
ex-president of the Exchange National
Bank; James G. Batetrson. president of the
Iravelers Insurance Company, and James
N. Nichols, president of the National Fire
Insurance Company, was appointed to
represent the Hartford stockholders and
any others who will send their proxies to
them. The purpose of the committee is to
oppose an increase of capital, and secure
home management and economy in conduct
ing the road, and oppose costly extensions.
They voted to prepare suitable proxies and
leave them with the Hartford Board of
Trade to be given toall stockholders who
may send for them.
As to Ture Milk.
To the Editor ot the Indianapolis Journal:
The Journal has a reported conversation
with Dr. Brayton upon milk, in which he
says: "I think Indianapolis has an abund
ance of the best milk in the world. The
great interest taken in this matter by the
Hoard of Health and sanitary committees,"
etc. I wish simply to inquire if the best
milk in the world is produced from such
food as starch-factory and brewery slops!
Such is tho food given to a large number of
dairy cows whoso milk is daily sold to the
people of the city. The late Dr. R, T.
Brown called attention to this fact
in a short article in a city paper
not many months beforo his death.
He referred to the use of such slops as a
direct violation of law, and, I think, called
the attention of tho Board of Health to
these facts; but whether he did or not,
what is that board doing about it! The
unpleasant odor of starch slops is found in
the milk, cream and butter made from
them. The milk will sour twelve hours
sooner than that produced from mill feed,
both sitting in ice-water together. The
cream is not only disagreeable in smell and
taste, but frothy, and nothing better than
third-class butter can be made from-it.
Such are the facts about much of the milk
sold in the city, of which Dr. Brayton says:
"Probably no city of its size on earth is
surrounded with such excellent conditions
for tho production of good milk."

- The Maine Election. ,
The Independent
Next to the liquor question as moving
causes in the election were the tar ill', the
steamship subsidy question and tho na
tional elections bill. It is very gratifying
to have so strong an approval of these great
questions of Republican policy. 'Dirigo'7
is the motto of 'Maine. As the old Pine
Tree State has been accustomed to lead the
Republican hosts in the past, we trust that
it has again but indicated tho way for all
Republican States to follow in November.
