THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1890.
TYQ OFTHE IIOUCIIINS GANG Tho Leader of Dangerous Counterfeiters Together with his Wife Captured E Is Aba Wanted by the State Authorities as an Iicaped dnyict Who Killed a Man for Informing on Him. DIitriet-Attorcey Cockrum received word yeserday afternoon from Major Carter, o the tecret service, that he had arrested, for counterfeiting, Columbus Honchins and wifo. at EInora, IIL Marshal Dunlap Trent to Vincennea last night to meet the party and assist in bringing the prisoners to this city for triaL They are expected to arrive this morning. Honchins is an out law of checkered career. Jndge Gres29iu sentenced him years ago to the- Prison North for counterfeiting, and the term vra served. The ex-convict then Trent to Pike county, "with vengeance against the man whose testimony convicted turn, and shot him in a cnrartlly Tray. He est his victim walking on the street in Pe tersburg, and followed him some time be fore ho made himself known. The man tr ho was bo soon to meet his death was carrying a baby in his arms, and was in the ret of turning a corner when Honchins tired. The ballet entered bis back, and he fell to the ground, expiring in a few moments. The child vras unhurt. For this Houchina w&a sentenced to a long term in the peni tentiary at Jetlersonville, but last month ha managed to escape. He took with him a set of dangerous die, with which he has been making counterfeit silver dollars, halves and quarters. Living in the remote regions of southern Indiana and Illinois he has hitherto es caped capture, though he is wanted both by the State authorities as a fugitive, and by thofidsral authorities for counterfeiting. The out put cf his nefarious business was bo perfect as to escape detection, even un der inptction,nnlessby expert. Houchina' a wife is accused of being hi accomplice, and thcra are others in the gang, whose arrests , Trill likely follow in the near future. The secret-service officers in this fcity have known for some time that the Honchins gang were at work, but they have leen waiting developments. One week ago last Thursday United States Ma rah.il Dun Hp, Deputies Conway and; Robertson, and Major Carter, received information that t-ere was a chance to capture four of the rang, and they decided to go to their ren dezvous at once. A Journal reporter ac companied them on the trip, which, however, proved to be a useless one. From this city they went to Terre Haute, where a telegram from southern officers was to have been in waiting in case their plans had been foiled. No message was re ceived, however, and the journey was con tinued to Vincennes and thence to Prince ton. Here it was the intention to go to Vclpin. a hamlet about thirty miles east of Princeton, where a wanon was to be in waitinz. From Velpin the plan was to drive to the place where the counterfeiters vrere supposed to be working. It was known to the officers that the . gang. had been concealed in a Jog cabin about ten miles out from Velpin. The plan was to arrive thero before daylight and surround tha house. It would have been an unusual happening, the officers thought, if one of the gunsc should not venture out early in the morning, and it was intended to lirst take him prisoner. By this means the force in the house, known to be com posed of three men and one woman, would Lo decreased by one. Latitude was of course given to the possibility of circum stances shaping themselves in such a way as to thwart this plan, but the officers were very sanguine of success. L pon their arrival at Princeton, however, their course was completelv changed by re ports from two officers who had arranged to meet the party at Velpin. They had tel tzrnphed Major Carter at Terre Haute as agreed, but the message was not delivered, and, receiving no reply, the Indianapolis oftcers went at once to Princeton. There it was learnad that Columbus Honchins. James Lewis and the woman had gone to Danville, HL, while only one member of the gang, Jesse Honchins. was in the cabin. It was, of course, an easy matter to capture him, bat nothing could have been gained by such amove, for reliable information was to the effect that Columbus Honchins had removed all evidence of his nefarious trade from the cabin the day before. Columbus Honchins is said to be one of tho most dangerous men that is cr has been enraged in counterfeiting in this Stats. He was ous of a family of nine sons and has always borne the name, too, of be ing a desperate lighter, although his broth er Jes.se is said to possess less courage. The officers were well armed on their trip, but fortunately no shooting was required. A good deal of paper money was made by the Houchlas gang, principally ten-dollar bills which were said to be almost perfect. Henry Jackson, who was brought to this city from the southern part of the Stato on a like charge, was released yesterday on a iive-handred-dollar bond LOCAL FINANCIAL SITUATION. Tho Bankers Did Well tha Tast Sir Dais and tba Outlook Promises No Stringency. The city banks during the past week did an unusually good business, and the asso ciated banks mac. an excellent showing in their report to the cleaing-house yester day. The report was: Loans, $7,121,441.27; deposits, $10,410,433.0!; reserve, $6,003,600.70. This report shows the following increases: In loans, $25,372.4?; in deposits, $25,214.65; in the total reserve fund. SC8.S44.04. The banks now hold an excess of $2,509,5r3,73 orer and fLovo the CC13 per cent, rule of tho Clearing-house Association. County Ire asnrer Osternian was asked by a Journal reporter yesterday what he thought of the general linancial situation and outlook in this city. "It is good, and will not Brow worse," was the prompt rep!y. The Indiarapolis money market has been a little tight for a time, but it is now grow ing better. The bankers of this city are conservative, shrewd men, and they are all in good shape." "Is money to be borrowed easily!" he was asked. "Not so easily as it was six months ago. because of the increased demand, and that is accounted for in tho shortage of the wheat crop and the discouraging outlook for corn. I have handled grain for twenty live years, and noticed that when we have a surplus of grain the money outlook is very good." "Is there not a sufficient sapply of last year's wheat in reserve to reimburse the farmer for this year's loss?'' "No. The granaries of Iudiana are al most empty, lor there was very little of tho last year's crop neld orer. There is not enough on hand to bring a fair average in prices to the farmer, for the wheat in 1&9 was poor. But we have no cause to fear a stringency." "Andwhynotr iimpy because thel business men of In dianapolis are careful and conservative. In times past, when money was very scarce, you will remember that only one or two of our Meridian-street merchants failed. Tho business men of this city deserve great credit for their financial ability, and never more so than at tho present time. Thov know by experience just what to do and when to do it, and to that happy faculty more than anything else do we owe our financial stability." Sir. White' Theory. John Z. White, of Chicago, "spoko to about two dozen persons last evening at Board of Trade Hall on the single-tax theory, holding that all taxen should be placed upon land, and that all personal property should go free of taxation. Mr. white discussed long and eloquently on the beauties of free trade. "A high-priced earth' said the lecturer, "means a low priced man. and a low-priced earth a high priced man; a high rent means low wages, tad a low rent high wages." Accident to I'oUcemen. The sight of Capt. Campbell, Sergeants Buscher and Vt heatley, and Louis Travis drawing a baggy and leading a team of Williarn Loaf's ponies in from Brigutwood the other day created avast deal ofcuri cdty, fdjrsd oil with the ludicrous. The citn-tlon was sxplcintd b' a splice in the Z:ls cf tho vehicle, bound by ono of , . the hitching-strsps. The ponies either be came frightened or objected to the driving, and in some wsy managed to break tho pole. None of the police cared to go near enough to their heels to hitch them up again, and so they concluded to pull tho vrhiclo into the city and lead tho team. They had been fishing and knew without some incident of this kind, the trip would not have been a picnic at all? RUN DOWN BI DETECTIVES. Davis, the Snpposed Murderer of the Ilanga ville Marshal, Is Again in Custody. William Davis, a colored barber, was ar rcstedyesterday by detectives Gerber and Quigley on a warrent sworn out by Fatrick Dillon, charging him with the killing of affiant's brother Andrew, who was marshal of Haughville at the time of the murder. The prisoner was found at the work-house, he having been sentenced Friday to servo thirty days for stealing a quantity of rags. Davis was taken to the county jail, and then slated at the station-house for the crime named in the warrant. Davis was arrested the mornin2 aftor the murder which occurred on a Saturday night last Juno while Dillon was attempt ing to arrest a crowd of moving men and women. He was taken to the station house, and there a hat left on the ground after the shootins was tried on him. The tit of the hat was perfect, but the prisoner was released, as thero was no way of prov ing that the owner of the hat did the shoot ing. The detectives learned a further fact, that the murderer wore a white suit of clothes, and that Davis owned such a suit, but still the evidence was not considered sufficient. Detectives Gerber and Quigley, however, kept a close watch on Davis, and have been unremitting in their efforts to secure evidence enough to warrant his ar rest. Davis, it was noticed, disappeared for a while, and when he camo back and went to work in the West Washington-street barber shop, it was learned that ho never wore a light suit of clothes. Other evi dence, which the officers fel bound not to disclose, at the present at least, rewarded their persistent effort sufficiently to make the issuance of a warrant advisable. They believe they can prove that Davis was the man seen Tunning hatless down the road after Dillon fell. Harding & Hovey have been retained by Dillon's relatives to as sist in tho prosecution. Davis denies the accusation. ENTERTAINMENTS TO COME. Headings Under the Auspices of the Kinder garten Association. Mr. George Riddle, who is giving Shak tpearian readings with great success in the larger cities, has been engaged for a course of ix readings in this city, begin ning Wednesday, Oct. 1, at Plymouth Church.

George William Cnrtis says of him: "His thorough training in elocution is not less evident than his refinement, and breadth and force of style. 1 do not recall so satisfactory and masterly a reader since the days of Mrs. Fanny Kemble." Mr. Kiddle comes to Indianapolis under tho auspices of the Free Kindergarten Associa tion. Of the six entertainments four will be given in the evening and two as Satur day matinees.

George Horn is in Cleveland acting as one of the auditing committee of tho national union. What Sir. York Says. The shooting for which Henry James was triedjUd" not occur at Garfield Park on La bor day, but that evening on the-Belt road, near the park. Thaddeus E.

Vmcliolesome Oyster The So-Called Iialll more Canned Oyster As we aro well along in the months end ing with "er," in which period oysters are considered most wholesome and having the delicate and delicious flavor in more abundance than at an earlier period, a Journal reporter took a tour of the princi pal houses, on information intent. There was considerable complaint last season among many families, hotels and restau rants of the first class as to bulk oysters shipped in bret sorted and washed in White-river water, canned in the establish ment and sold for Baltimore and New York canned goods, which is a frand ou the con sumer, as it is well known that an oyster shipped in bulk, with ice placed in the ves sel, and afterwards, at destination, washed in White-river water robs thebivalve of its flavor, and leaves it a shrunken, spoiled, insipid and unwholesome articlo of food. The Evans Fulton Market, of No. 61 North Illinois street, do not perpetrate any such miserable frauds cu their customers, and claim that theirs is the only oyster-nouse in the city whose canned oysters are canned in Baltlmoxe and Now York. LAYING OUT IMFEOVEMENTS Commercial CInbDirectorsIIoarandAct on Reports from the Committees. Negotiations to Bring: a iT& Manufactory Here-Knildinff Project Consincred-Objec-tion toTnrnine the State Ditch Into; Sewer. 1 Tho Commercial Club directors met yes terday afternoon in regular session. The iinanco committee submitted a form of sub scription for stock in the proposed new building, which is similar to the present form, with the membership feature omitted. The form was approved. Mr. Stcchhan, from the committee on manufactures, submitted a letter from s Madison, Wis., machine company stating that it contemplated moving and asking for information concerning the advantages Indianapolis has to offer. Tho company employs S00 men. and the letter states that when the change of location is effected, the business will bo enlarged bo that the shops will cover seven acres and 500 men will be employed. Mr. Stechhan stated that the committee was in correspondence with this company and would make every effort to bring about the removal of the works to this city. The special committee on mechanics institute through Mr. Stcchhan reported the result of the conference last Wednes day evening, and requested authority to sign for tho club a communication asking the co-operation in the project of the Indi anapolis manufacturers. Mr. Stechhan again urged the importance of the club encourag ing the enterprise to enlarge the mechanics institute, and stated that a capital of from ST.OOOto $8,000 was needed for the regular employment of teachers. Under the pres ent arrangement the instruction was prac tically gratuitous. Mr. Fletcher, from the special committee on sewers, submitted a partial re port, calling the club's attention to the schema to convert the Stato ditch into a sewer and showing the danger to which resideuts would be sub jected were the draiuage effected in the manner proposed. He urged that it would be a suro disease-breeder, and suggested that a plan of utilizing the ditch for sur face drainage bo substituted. Mr. Mason thought the ditch a nuisance which should be abated. Mr. Stechhan asked if the com mittee had anv recommendations to make, to which Mr. Fletcher replied that it had not, but that he simply made the report for information, and hoped the club would fight the scheme for the reason he had ad vanced. The committee will submit a vol uminous report within a month, or just as soon as the engineers have completed their work of examination. A letter was read from Y. A. Randall, of this city, corresponding secretary of the National Brick-manufacturers' Associa tion, asking the club to adopt a resolution inviting that organization to hold its an nual meeting in Indianapolis. Mr. Randall was present, and said that if this city's advantages as a meeting point were prop erly presented to the executive committee at its meeting next week he believed the latter would favorably consider it. He asked that an official invitation be ex tended, and said that from 800 to 500 dele gates would attend the meeting. A motion that the Commercial Club extend an invitation to the association to meot here was carried. The special committee appointed to urge the passage of an ordinance prohibiting peddling on tho business streets reported that, while not ready to submit a report, it had secured pledges from enough members cf tho Council to insuro the ordinance's passago, and there was every assurance that in a few weeks the nuisance would be abated. He said that in tho meantime efforts were being made to enforce tho ex isting ordinance, and that several prosecu tions of peddlers by members of the com mittee had considerably reduced the num ber of hand-carts. Tho directors then went into committee of the whole upon the building matter, and discussed in a general way for half an hour tho financial plan of procedure. It was concluded, however, to defer action until the next meeting. ITEMS FROM TIIE POLICE. A Colored Man Who with Threats, It Is Said, Demanded Money from a "Widow. Georgs Lino, colored, was a name on the station-house slate last night, he being under arrest for carrying concealed weapons. The chief oflense, however, for which he was taken in is an alleged attempt to black-mail a soldier's widow, who lives on Meridian street, near South. Bine was employed by her, on her removal from Crawfordsville to this city some weeks since, to lay carpets in the rooms she had rented, and for that work he charged her $5. She object ed to tho amount, but Line told her she need not pay it then, as if he had it he would probably spend it foolishly. Sometime after, as the woman, who has a pension, was on tho street near her home. Line approached hor and demanded his money. She had just drawn her pension, and paid him the amount, thinking it was the last of him. But he has since, it is alleged, made a demand upon her for S1.50, threatening to give information to the authorities which bo claimed to have that would deprive her of the pension. She refused his demand, though she was repeatedly annoypd by him, and at last Line told her he would kill her. He attempted to enter her room, Friday moraine, it is charged, and again yesterday afternoon, but Merchant policeman Webb, who had heard the story, spied him going there with a large rock in his hand. When Line saw Webb he threw the stone away, but was arrested and charged, as stated, to allow time for further investigation of the offense. Int!fctel on Deing Arrested. A. n. Ilulin presented himself to turnkey Clarke last night at the station-houso and said be understood there was a warrant out for his arrest on a charge of cruelty to animals. Mr. Clarke told him he knew nothing of it, but that he could come to court Monday with his bondsman and set tle the case. No,M said nulin; "here I am, and if yon don't take me now you won't get me, for I have money enough at homo to skip cut, and I will leave." "All right, then," said the turnkey, "in you so," and the clank of the iron door echoed through the room as it closed on the prisouer. But Ilulin was no sooner inside than he asked to have a bondsman sent for. and every five minutes his impatient call could be heard, "Oh, Clarke, has he come yet!" Reported at the Statlon-TJonse. James Foster, sixteen years of age. was yesterday reported to the police as missing from his hoarding-house. No. 281 Olive street, and from his work at the Van Camp canning factory. He has not been seen for two weeks, and his parents, who live at Lebanon, have begun search for him. W. H. Baker, of Lawrence township, re ported to police headquarters last night that somo one had stolen his horse, a bay stallion. He was hitched to an old rockaway buggy. F. M. Clark, of Sabina. also report ed the loss of a horse, which he had left hitched in front of the cojrt-house yes terday af ternoon. . A Small Green-Goods Scheme, narry Erubree and Fred Kcrm, twenty and twenty years of age, respectively, were brought to this city last night by Deputy United States Marshal Conway, from Bed ford, where their parents live on neighbor ing farms. They are charged with using tho mails for fradulent-purposes, the scheme being to advertise to sell counter feit bills for good money and then paying no attention to the occasional remittances received. They operated, it is alleged, through the Lafayette postollico. No Trouble About the Annuities.
