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.

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.
