Emrlch "was yesterday added to tne $2,000 bond given by Lemon E. Kein hold to answer to a charge of burglary. It la gaid Isaao King, one of the first two bondsmen secured, became nneasy, and in sisted that other names be secured, or he "would withdraw. John A. Ilnfiman, a dep uty sheriff, who i9 surety oa Keinhold's bond as notary public, desires to withdraw, and yesterday filed a petition in the Circuit Court tdTbe allowed to do so. Reinhold is deputy prosecuting attorney in 'Squire Al len's court in West Indianapolis. . The arrest of IteichoM resulted from testimony given by Harry Horton, who is the supposed leader of the gang of burglars and foot-pads that has been scattered. Heoflered to give the oQicers Important information if assured of a light sentence, but the best that could be ottered him was that he would have to take chances on that, lie went before the grand jury, however, and said Ketnbold, as attorney for Thorn and Iteycolds. becoming possessed of informa tion concerning his record, used it as a menace to force him and his pals to commit bcrcrtaries and other crimes, in which there was no pro tit for him and those with him. Of such a nature was the attempt on the house of the city editor of the News, in re taliation, as Horton testified, for the treat ment of Keinhold in that psper when his wife committed suicide. Horton said Kein hold stood on the opposite side of the street at tho time of the attempt, which was frustrated by tho inmates of tho bouse becoming aroused. The wit nee further said Keinhold was an accomplice in a number of the other crimes attempted or committed, but only charged him with direct complicity in the robbery of Wright's grocery, on West Washington street. Ho said Hemhold's share in the booty was $285, which he re ceived for alleged legal services. The statement was also made that It was Reinhohl who sent back the package of val uable papers stolen from the safe of W. y. flyers, the pressed tinware manufacturer. A number of instances were recounted in which Kein nold was accused of taking Uorton to the places to be robbed on some pretense, in order to allovr ihe latter to learn where the afes to be broken open stood. Charles U. Feibleman's office, on Court street was one of the otlices to be robbed. Keinhold de files every allegation, and attributes Ilor ton's motive in making the statements to a desire for revenge because he would not undertake his defense. Captain bplann has secured from Horton the names of other members of the gang, who have left the city, and also the names of several burglars who are now operating in Cincinnati. The latter information has been wired to the police authorities there. 1 Death of av Colored Artist. Henry J. Lewis, the colored man who came to this city from Pine Bluil, Ark., two and a half years ago, and achieved some reputation as an engraver and cartoonist, died yesterday forenoon, at 10 o'clock, of lung disease, at his home on Lincoln lane. Ho was about thirty-live years old, with no education, except that he could read and write.et his proficiency with the pencil and burin was something remarka ble. His idea of form was excellent, and he had little trouble to rapidly reproduce anj thing that came nnder hia observation. He was lar from being attractive in per tonal appearance, being very careless in that regard, beside which he bad lost an eye, and wore a ragged patch over the sightless and misshapen orb. Yet he was a genius, and with proper direction might have made bis way in the world. He had done considerable pictorial work on the Freeman, of this city, and occasionally found sale for a sketch to Tuck. Judge or fomo other of the humorous papers. The ftketcaea he sold to thee papers were chief ly portrayals of negro life in the South, and (hey were accurate picture taken from his own observation. Kiw bed-roem sets at Wa L. Elder's. DETAILS OF CITY AFFAIRS Street Commissioner HarroldaThorn in the Side of the Board of Public Works. His Incompetency hAfixraratinzu Ills Inde pendence Is Insulting Street Improve mentsWhy a Salary Was Not Increased. Next Monday the Board of Publio Works will call the able street commissioner before it and try to find out what he is doing with all his big force of men. His . wwkly pay roll, approved yesterday, amounted to $1,151.59, and the board has an idea that such a remarkably heavy expenditure of money ought to produce some visible re sults, U is a well-known fact that Har rold'a fores is composed of broken-down shirkers, whoso only Qualifications are th eir ability to vote and their membership in Democratic clubs. A certificate of such membership, by the wari is one of tho re quirements for a job on the street force. The roil now contains 148 names; almost all intensely Hibernian, and about three fourths of them are residents of the Twenty-Cf th ward. The spirit that domi nates tho force was beautifully displayed immediately after the chatter went Into effect. The pay-roll was made out on Tnesday and the board on Wednesday de clined to approve it until the members had timet look it over critically. When the men Went to the comptrollers ofiicoto get their money aud were not accommodated the atmosphere was blue. Olie old man swore lko a trooper about tho Major for appointing saeh a board mt proclaimed in a loud voice that when the next election came around the Twenty.fi fthj ward would teach tiictn how things would be done. Several days ago the board notified "the commissioner to appear, but he has paid no attentioa to it as yet. Harrold has thus far been running his work to suit himself. Hereafter the board will take charge of it and try to introduce some system. The first work will be to give a thorough cleaning to all streets that are to be swept by contract. Ordinarily this would take Hairold and his force a year, but the board hopes ,to pnsh it through within six or seven weeks. 11 L. Hawkins was before the bosrd yes terday to aak what waa tho matter with the Broadway pnving. Mr. Conduitt ex plained that the proposed paving of a few squares there waa not in accordance with the plans and ideas of the board. The re monstrance, Mr. Conduitt said, had no in Uuence in the matter. They had never looked at it, "I didn't know but what I might make a speech and move you in the matter." said Mr. Hawkins. Well," replied Mr. 'Conduitt, "your in floence would amonnt to iust as much as anybody's." "That is about as much as the remon strance!" asked Mr. Hawkins with a laogh. The board adopted a declaratcry resolu tion to pave St. Joseph street, from Ala bama to Fennsyluania with brick. This will be the first brick stroet-paving put down in the city, and the board regards it , as considerable of an experiment. After two weeks' advertising remonstrances will be heard, and then proposals will be asked for. Another street that will ba paved very soon is Seventh street, from Alabama to Illinois, and possibly on west to the Big Four tracks. Mr. Conduitt rather favors brick for this, but Messrs. Sherer and De frees both believe it hotter to pave it with asphalt, because brick is as yet an experi ment, and because all the principal streets running into Seventh will be asphalt. Ex- Mayor Grub bs. Councilman Cooper and property-owners of North Illinois street were before tho board, to once more ask if it was not possible for all the property-owners and tho Western I'aving and Supply Company to so modify the contract as to only pave up to the tracks. The city attorney was present, and gave as his oft hand opinion that the only safe way to do this was for the company to throw up its contract and have a new letting. Mr. Ken yon, for the Vaving Company, explained that while the Paving Company was per fectly willing to modify the contract, if it could be done legally, it could not throw it up. because it had already contracted for supplies for the work. The matter was re ferred to the city attorney for a written opinion. , J. P. llaker, attorney, for the Greenwood suburban company, camo in to ask if the board had yet done anything in regard to its petition. Mr. Conduitt informed him that the board bad not yet secured enough information to make out a route. The following bids on the Shelby-street bridge, over Pleasant run, were opened: Whitsit & Adams, whole work, $7,600; Youngblood, Madison & Fitzgerald, sub structure, ;,0u0; Yonngstown Bridge Com pany, whole work, $8,000; Pittsburg Bridge Company, whole work. $rt,t05; R. D. Wheat on it Co.. of Chicago, whole work, $7,200; Pennsylvania Bridge Company, whole work, $3,000; Columbus Bridge Com pany, whole work, $7,500: Canton Bridge Company, whole work, $?,4S5: Massillon Bridge Company, whole work, $7,450; Chi cago Bridge and Iron Company, whole work, $7,800; F. C. Twiss, Cleveland, whole work. $7,950; J. W. Pearle, whole work, 88,000; Toledo Bridge Company, whole work, $7,440; King Bridge Company, of Cleveland, whole work, $7,000; Kass A: Fritz, Fulton & Tnlamg, August Kichter &. Brother and Wm. Petrie had in bids on the substructure which have not yet been figured up. T. T. Cheehan's bid was thrown out, not being in accordance with tho specifications. The board adopted its final resolution to build the short sewer in the first alley north of Michigan street, from Meridian to Pennsylvania, There were no remon strances against it. A petition to vacate the first alley south of North street, from Noble to the first alley west of Noble, was filed. The board declined to vacate it. A petition was filed for the opening of Jeck street, between Fast and Barth. Ills Democracy Not Sufficient. When the salary ordinance passed the Council the fact was remarked that the clerk of the Board of Publio Works was the only one of the new appointees that failed to get an increase. Though it is a well known fact that he has more work to do than any of the other clerks, his salary was left at $600 per year. It was supposed at tho time that this was an oversight, which would be remedied by a. new ordinance at the next meeting. The clerk who was "scooped" thinks so yet, and so does the Mayor, who will probably approve the ordinance on this theory. Bat there is a lit tle tale connected with this oversight. That omission was intentional," said a Democratic? member of the Coun cil yesterday; "and in my opinion it was a low . trick. It camo about from the fact that Sam Perrott, in the city clerk's orbce, got miffed at Parker because he wouldn't join the Gray Club, and then Parker was unwise enough to say to him one day that, while he was a good Democrat, he was not a hot partisan, and would treat a Republican. the same in his official dealings as he would a Democrat; that outside of politics be believed one as good a man as another, both morally and socially. Sara detailed the story about, and, as a consequence, when the second salary ordinance wssintroduced by Murphy, the clerk of the Board of Publio Works was left out. Is it any wonder that this sort of politics sometimes makes even a Democrat. sickT" Mr. Murphy said at first that the omis sion was an oversight, but a little later said that Parker was not given an increase because he did not ask for it He admitted, however, that several of the of ficials had been raised without asking for it "I did not have anvthingtodo with it" said Mr. Perrott when questioned about the matter. "1 saw the first ordinance and it met my approval, but 1 was not interest ed in the second and did not see it" ItMs entirely probable that Mr. Kassman, who voted against the ordinance, will raise the point at the next meeting as to whether it is legal. He has uo recollection of its ever having been read the first time. Done to riease Colbert When the Board of Public Safety dropped thirty of the old policemen to make room for new men, it made a great show of non partisanship by explaining that some of them were Democrats. Some of them were Democrats, but not of the Holt and Colbert stripe. "Justice has never been done the men who were fired1 eaid an old police man, still on the force, to a reporter yester day. "An afternoon paper stated that they were let go for incompetency, bnt there never was a more unjust lie than that in print Without exception the men let ko, Democrats and Republicans, were men who declined to go over with Colbert two years ago, when he organized his rump force un der the Bingham law, under which the present board was first appointed. The men who staid with - the old force were policemen and not politicians, and they did not care to run the risk of losing a couple of months' psv to make a political show of themselves. Neither Colbert nor the board has any use for any of the men who staid with Travis, and Pll bet a hat that we'll all go before the year is out But you just wait until another year rolls around! Every one of the men let go has plenty of friends, and if they havo any in fluence at all there will be a now board and a new mayor. It is not the fact that they were dropped that hurts most, it is the im putation the board allowed to rest upon them that they were incompetent" Street Assessments on Liens. The city attorney yesterday delivered to the Board of Publio Works a written opin ion in reply to questions as to when an as sessment for street improvements becomes a lien on property and whether it is neces sary for the board to specify in resolntion the time when it becomes a lien. In reply the city attorney quotes tho section of the charter describiLg minutely the steps to bo taken in making up the assessment rolls denominated the "local assessment dupli cate," and says tho assessment becomes a lien when this duplicate is filed with the comptroller. It is superior to all other liens, except taxes. It is not necessary to specify in resolution when the assessment becomes a lien, as the charter already does it By-Laws of the Commercial Club. The by-laws committee of the Com mercial Club met yesterday afternoon and approred its report as drawn up by the secretary. The report will coma before the directors this afternoon, and if approved by them will go to the club next Monday evening. The club has received a Tequest for a copy of its constitution from Tacoina. where a movement is on foot to organize a club modeled after it Another Office to F1IL Dr. Morrison, of the Board of Health, is engaged in drawing up an ordinance creat ing the ofQco of plumbing inspector and defining his duties. A number of Demo cratic plumbers are "hustling'' for the of fice, the most active of whom is Henry M. Smith. S ' THE DEMOCRATS CAN TAKE HIM. A Private Secretary Visited by a Gubernatorial Candidate Who Is Afraid of No One tat Hover. ! "Good morning, Private Secretary Rob erts." The private secretary looked up from a pardon case he had been studying intently yesterday morning and saw that the salutation came from rather a peculiar looking man, apparently forty-five or fifty years old, and whom he had never seen be fore. After the man had seated himself at the invitation of the secretary, he con tinued: "Well, Pve concluded to take the office." Thinking possibly the man was an appli cant for some position, Private Secretary Roberts diplomatically remarked: "So you have decided to accept Let me see; what place is it!" "Governor," responded the man. "Yes. I will have to be Governor. They all want me Republicans and Democrats and I can't get out of it. But say," and he leaned forward, and whispered cantiously and confidentially, "is Governor Uovey going to run again!" "No, the Governor will not be a candi date," answered the Secretary, who was wondering from which hospital the nan escaped and whether he was harmless. "Well. Pm glad of that'' said the vis.tor. who was very much in earnest, "for be is the only man I was afraid o. So ie of the people in my county think he otu'it to be Governor right along. That vjnld be a saving of money, for he could go right on holding the oilico and there wouldn't have to be any election. Flec tions are expensive." concluded the am bitious individual, as bis mind in an ap parently lucid interval contemplated the Australian system. "1 wouldn't run for Governor," advised the secretary. "Oh. you want the place yourself.? said the morning caller with a knowing look, and when he left the office it was with some misgivings that tho private secretary would run against him. The roan proved to be Alfred Perdue, a harmless lunatio from Delaware county, who got away from home and carried his campaign into the capital city. The gub ernatorial hobby is his latest and be confi dently expects to run the State when Gov ernor Hovey's term has expired. He is a member of the eect of Dunkards. , It Is Worth Assisting. The Y. M. C. A., through its gymnasium and the attention it gives to physical cult ure, is doing a work in this community that is recognized by every one. The gymna sium during the past winter has done an especially good work, and many young business men of this city, on account of it, have a robust manhood they would not otherwise have achieved. The bath-rooms are an excellent adjunct and have been largely patronized, while the reading-room affords a place where an hour or so may be spent in wholesome surroundings. The ob ject of the association has not been to make money, but to do good, and get as many young men as possible interested in some part of its work. Tho fee of So, which sives one the benefit of gymnasium and baths, and all that is connected with the associa tion, does not pay half the expense of op erating. This year ST.EOO will be needed, in addition to the membership fees and other available moneys, and this amount the friends of the association will be called upon to raise. There are now one thousand members. During the year 119,000 persons visited the rooms, 48,000 baths were taken, and 29,000 persons registered in the gym nasium, 22,000 visited the reading-room, aud 2,215 took part in the evening classes. Violation of Federal Laws. Deputy United States Marshal Moore ar rested Jerome B. Howland near Knights town yesterday and brought him to the jail here for safe keeping. Howland is charged with violating the pension laws, and is under indictment in the Federal Court for the Southern district of Ohio at Cincinnati. It is alleged that be procured a pension in Miami county, Ohio, in No vember, 1880. by fraudulent representations. It is probable that Judge Woods will issue an order to-day for Rowland's re moval to Cincinnati. lie has been working in the paper-mill near Carthage. Frank Fremoin and Fred Vollmer, the two Fort Wayne men arrested by the United States authorities here for violating the internal revenue laws, have given bond in the sum of $200 each. Labor Notes. The tinners alone have not as yet adjust ed differences with their employers. The plumbers have gone to work on agreement of the employers to have none but union men to do their work. James H. Deery, of the Paper-hanaers' Union, was elected president last night of tho Building Trades' Council in place of Mr. Yates, the carpenter. The carpenters having withdrawn from the council, Mr. Yates could no longer serve. All the wall-paper-dealers in the city have signed the agreement with the Paper hangers' Union, the details of which have been given. The dealers will employ only members of the union, unless they have permission to do otherwise by the written consent of its president and secretary. Struck Her with a Board. Anna Devine was given a judgment, yes terday, by a jury in Judge Walker's court, for $500 as damages against William Rob ertson. The plaintiff, is the wife of a col ored tenant on the defendant's farm in Wayne township, and in a quarrel over the rent the latter struck the plaintiff with a board. A Receipt for a Sam. The Treasurer of State yesterday filed with Auditor Henderson his receipt for $719,144.03. the amount received from the federal government in payment of the di rect waj tax ref under. SCHOOL LIFE !' GERMAN!. Prof. Jenks Speaks EnterUiflinply of Custom Strange to an Audience of Americans. Yesterday afternoon, in the Young Peo ple's Lecture Course at Plymouth Church, Prof. Jeremiah W. Jenks, of the State University, talked on his observations of school methods in Germany. Six or seven years ago," said tho Professor, "while walking along the streets of Halle, in Germapy, I noticed a brick building in a yard, inclosed by a bnck wall, and look ing through an iron gate I saw long lines of little boys marching in single file, each with his hands upon the shoulders of the boy in front Two or three solemn-looking men in black, teachers evidently, were looking at them and occasionally saying a word or two. Separated from the boys, and on tho other side of a brick wall, were little girls marching in like ridiculous way. That was a German public sohool and the children were supposed to be playing, but there was not, apparently, a particle of fun in it I had an idea it was a sort of drill, and preliminary to what would follow when the boys should be called to do military service." It is the regular thing in Germany, the Professor remarked, to have boys and girls separated in the publio schools, even those of the lowest grades. They have the im pression that they must not play together or sit together, and must nave separate schools aud different teachers. "I believe this system of keeping boys and girls apart" he continued, "from babyhood up does not have as good an effect as it might 1 do not believe that German girls are any more modest ana rell-bebaTed than Amer ican girls. They ha?e the idea that the girls cannot leain as the boys do: that they cannot understand Latin and Greek, und cannot study geometry and algebra. 1 ney talk a great deal abont woman's sphere, as some people do in this country, and their studies are arranged accordingly. "Boys in Germany begin studying Latin when nine years old and 6tudy it for nine years. They have Greek much more thor ough than here, aud mathematics also. The result is that when they get old enough to go to the university they are bettor able to go than onr boys, yetthey know much less than our boys about politics and things that are met with iu society. They are more thorough students and yet lack the self-reliance of American boys, lint self reliance is in the air in this country.' In Germany we find iucn teaching in the pri mary grades, while in the higher grades we do tlo not find any women at all, except perhaps, au occasional teacher of Lnglish or French. Through the army tho whole nation is taught obedience, and scnolars feel the necessity of obedience to teachers. "Recitations are different from here. Take history, for example; the scholar fre quently begins to learn it as soon as he comes to school not from books, but told bv the teacher. They will begin with the stories of Jonah, David or Samuel, lhese they are taught to repeat and then write. Then come stories of Csrsar and Alexander, Frederick theGreat, Washington, their own military heroes, and so ou. Children conie into the school at 8 o'clock and stay until I o'clock, five hours of solid jecitatlon. A friend of mine, an American, w ent into one of these schools, where everything that was said or done appeared to be connected with the story of Kobinson Crusoe. All the arithmetical examples dealt with Robinson Crusoe, his goats, his grain or his man Fri day. There were questions about the island an to how far it was from Germany, where it was and how to got to it But their Kobinson Crusoe was a German, and sailed from Hamburg. The re sults of this kind of teaching are good. I think, however, that German boys and girls are apt to depend too much upon their teachers more than our boys and girls depend upon teachers. "I saw a singular notice posted np in a German university by the rector, or presi dent It was a request that theboysshould not make so much noise in tho beer garden near by while the recitations were going on. It seemed to rue that was different from the way an American college presi dent would treat such (h matter. But you must understand that a beer garden in Germany is very different from an institution of that kind here. It is as respectable to go to them asI don't know what to say well, to the Y. M. C. A., or pretty nearly that. Literary societies meet in them and theological students dis cuss questions of doctrine in them. It seems perfectly right to them t" do so, for they have been brought up that way.' The Profef sor also spoke of dueling among students and described a duel he wit nessed. He told in an interesting manner many other details of school life in Ger many, to allot which has young listeners gave the closest attention. Amusements. The Vaidis Sisters Specialty Company will close their engagement with two per formances at the Park to-day. All next week the attraction will be Miss Agnes Wallace-Villa, in Frank Harvey's English melodrama, "The World Against Her." The sale of seats for the Bernhardt en gagement continues at English's, and while there are yet good ones to be had, they are going very rapidly. Since it is evident that gallery seats, which command a good view of the stage, are being reserved by representative people, the demand for these is increasing. The gallery has been espe cially renovated for the occasion. The comedians, Evans and Hoey, will be the attraction at tho Grand for three nights, commencing Monday. They will present "A Parlor Match," which has been given so much new business, musio and specialties that it would hardly be recog nized were it not for the familiar faces of I McCorker and Old Hoss. While abroad last summer Messrs. Evans and Hoey se cured anumber of novelties. The most prom inent are the Sisters Levey, a trio of young Euglish girls who have made a success in this country. Seats will be on sale for the engagement this morning. Medical Change. Dr. Hale's Medical Dispensary succeeds the Chinese Herb Kemedy Company, at 25 West Washington street. Two eminent physicians are in charge of the new dispen sary. The east show-window of the gentle men's furnishing establishment of Paul Krauss attracted much attention yesterday, owing to the bsautifnl arrangement there in of fancy washable vests, with dark Tests as ground work. Mr. Krauss has an extensive line of these indispensable ad juncts to male attire, as well as seasonable styles of neckwear and underwear. Dunlap Spring Uats.
