Tho championship season Is open wide
open so far as Indianapolis is concerned,
for the team get away yesterday in much
better shape than a year ago. There was
lots of fun at the Ohio-strett grounds, and
IndianaioIis had all of it. Grand Itapids
didn't have even a littlo bit. In vain did
Glenalvin call on his men for a rally.
Thero wasn't even a small rally left in the
wholo team. Over three thousand people
cheered their favorites cn. The weather
relented and tho opening wa.s most au
spicious in every sense. The tally-ho pa
rade came off according to programme.
Tho Indianapolis men never looked so well
as in their white uniforms this season.
When they marched on to the held shortly
before the gamo the crowd gavo them a
noisy and approving reception. The former
Indianapolis players with Grand Rapia
were well received. Roat and Buckley haa
as much attention as tho home players
when they first came to bat.
Watkins's men showed fine form all
through. Their fielding was superb and
they hit hard enough for all purposes. Phil
lips had the Michigan delegation whipped
from the start. Not one of them showed
any disposition to connect with the ball.
Even Roat and Buckley, who slugged good
and hard when here, were helpless. The
mighty Glenalvin failed to get a hit. In
fact, as only two hits wero made during
tho entire nine innings, thero wero not
enough to go around. Tho Indianapolis men
backed up thL fine pitching In a way that
gladdened tho hearts of the fans and every
body Ih a fan on the opening day at least.
Stewart caught liners and stopped ground
ers like the Stewart of old. His jumping
catch of that hot one from Ganzel's bat in
the second was a beauty. And there were
others. Kustace couldn't play on account
of a crippled hand, but Cockman tilled his
place so well that he was not missed.
Gray's stop and throw at the close of the
gamo was a feature and his one error was
excusable. It wm a long throw and it
didn't go right, but cost nothing-. McCar
thy was In his usual shape, and besides
pulling down live Hies, hit for a homo run.
sending two men in ahead of him. Flvnn
made a beautiful catch in the fourth, of a
short fly, for which ho made a long run.
He ran the bases well and filled McFar
land's place with success. The latter turned
his ankle In dodging around second in the
opening inning, and quit the game. He
will bo all right again for this afternoon s
game, so Manager Watkins said last night.
Motz batted in two runs and was as reliable
as usual at lirst. Kahoo had a couplo of
passed balls, duo to a mix in signs.
Buckley threw four men out at second
and made it next to Impossible to steal that
bae. He also caught Phillips napping at
first and was the same old "Buck," but
he could not hit it safe down that loft
foul line though he tried hard enough.
Fred Boat's throwing was badly off and
he. too. failed to do anything with the stick.
Glenalvin played good ball but; with the
exception of Hatiield. the rest of them
were more or less ofT. Scott's pitching was
no more successful than his support,
Hogriever walked as a starter, but was
caught stealing. McFarland straightened
out a curve for a single, the ball getting
away frcra Slaglo long enough to let Mac
reach second. It was. in playing off that
base that he hurt his ankle. McCarthy's
out put him up to third and' Motz drove
the ball stralsrht to center, ncorlniy him.
Slagle fumbled again and Motz slid safely
Into second. Stewart went out from third
to first. Gray started the second by hitting
to left and Campau's miss of the grounder
gave him another base. Cockman sacrificed
and Kahoe'a fly to right scored the run.
l'hilllps hit out a. single, but was caught
napping by one of Buckley's snap shots.
With one out in the next inning, Flynn's
base on balls, McCarthy's single, a steal
and another safe tlrive by Motz scored the
third run. Mac was caught stealing just
before this and Stewart struck out. Gray
Kot a hit In the fourth, but was caught
stealing. Cockman hit one to Boat, who
threw wild to first. Kahoe forced Cockman
at second and then Phillips came along with
a big drive to the left field fence for three
bases, sending Cockman homa Hogriever
was out from pitcher to first.
Then Indianapolis took two Innings' rest,
renewing the pood work in the seventh.
With one out Hogriever walked and Scott
fumbled Flynn's little grounder. McCarthy
set the crowd wild with one of his long hits
to the right-center fence for a home run.
chasing the two men In ahead of him. It
was ono of the cleanest home runs ever
seen on the grounds. Motz fouled out and
Stewart retired the fide from short to first.
Just to keep the Interest going Indianapolis
took another whirl at scoring in the eighth
when, with one out, Cockman hit to right
for a base and went on to second when
Treadway fumbled it. Boat threw Kahoe's
grounder high and Phillips drove the ball
to the right of the clunhoue for three
bases, scoring two runs. Hogriever hit one
which Glenalvin just managed to touch and
Phillips came In. After Flynn had gone out
on a fly to Campau. Hogriever sprinted
to second, getting there by a long slide. A
bad throw by Scott to catch him napping
sent him to third, but McCarthy went out
from Glenalvin to Ganzel. Motz started
the ninth with a base on balls, but was left
by three straight outs.
Only three Grand Rapids men reached
second and but one of them got as fnr as
third so they never were really In sight of
a mn. It was an easy shut-out and if
Watkins's men will keep up this gait they
will Justlfv the expectations of the most
sanguine of their followers: Score:

Martin V. B. Spencer, the Indiana pension
agent, has returned from Washington,
whither ho went to find out tho nature of
the charges filed against him and ask leave
to file evidence with the commissioner of

Medkrik and have heretofore been specified
in the Journal. They Include charges of
violations of the law in the discharge of
clerks who were ex-soldiers and protected

covered with stripes made by a recent
whipping. She said her mother whipped
her on tho recommendation of Dr. House.
Judge Cox administered a lecture to Dr.
House before he got out of the courtroom,
saying he was more guilty than Mrs. Bone.
He thought It would have, been mor j hu
mane to have given the girl a doso o.' poi

Into Insanity and death. Mrs. Rone's testi
mony was about the game as her statement
published in tho Journal several days ago.
She said she and her husband had spent
$3.un0 trying to cure Mellie of the "devils"
which possessed her. She had gone to Dr.

Dr. Burroughs, in the course of his re
"Clearly we have como to a time for care
ful thought. Clearly is the time at hand
for advance through intelligent, patriotic
action. Not only have the public prints,
during the sessions of the late Legislature,
contained much regarding the proposed
general educational bill and the relation of
the nonstate and state Institutions to its
provisions, its discussion and its defeai, but
it has been evident that the people through
out the State have been deeply Interested.
In part they havo seen the merits of the
case, In part they have been asking and are
still asking, for further light. So far as
they have under&toood, they clearly appear
to believe that things are not right as they
are. that certain changes are necessary to
further educatiemal advance. They discover
that the appeal is to them, as the proper
judges of their own educational welfare.
They find all interested parties prepared
to use this language of the last issue of the
Inland Educator, us it concludes its survey
of what it terms 'Indiana's Kducational
Controversy.' 'After all, the people are the
state, and any progress for which the peo
ple are ready may be carried out.'
"Now all thinking educators of our State
agree that the time has fully come for im
provement In educational matters along
certain definite lines. 1. The minimum
school term must be lengthened. The late
bill called for six months. More than forty
years argo Prof. Mills urged seven months.
He wished that this had been specified in
the Constitution. 2. Thero Is need of an
adequate advanced, or high school system
for the country schools. Forty-five years
ago, in his sixth address, Prof. Mills urged
the cause of the townships and uttered
strong words for advanced, or high school
Instruction there, as a part of the common
school system. 3. We &Teatly need educa
tional qualifications, of a high character,
for county superintendents and for superin
tendents of schools In towns and cities.
Theso points Prof. Mills constantly dwelt
upon. 4. We need higher scholarship on
the part of teachers; and when scholarship
and character havo bee-n tested thoroughly,
license should be valid anywhere in the
State. No one has ever urged so strongly
as Prof. Mills the training of teachers, both
by normal instruction and actual practice
In teaching, and no one has urged so
strongly as he uniformity and universality
in school regulations and privileges. But
there are two other things which we also
need aJong with these things, and these
we need imperatively for the welfare of all
the educational interests of the State alike.
First, we need that equal treatment should
be accorded, on the part of the State, to all
her higher educational Institutions. Our
present Governor gave spontaneous and
strong expression to this conviction, when,
a few weeks since, he uttered these words:
The colleges of our State are performing
a noble work. Uqual encouragement, equal
rights and equal edvantages should be ac
corded to all the higher educational institu
tion preparing young men and young
women for the professions.' 'Equal and ex
act justice to all our colleges demands that
they stand on equal ground. Favoritism
is net in harmony with the genius of our
free government.' A general educational
bill presented to-day to the people and their
representatives should, first and most Im
portant of all, remove Injustice and In
equality; it should not, and must not, em
phasize these. Herein lay the weakness
and tho wrong of the late educa
tional bill, as unamended. Second,
we need a state board of educa
tion so organized that 'equal and exact jus
tice can bo done to all tho higher
Institutions of tho State, so that it may be
possible that they have 'equal encourage
ment, equal rights and equal advantages.'
Such is not now the case, as Is granted by
all who know and acknowledge the tacts
of tho case. Let U3 look at these facts as
presented in lxxrt by 'an authorized state
ment of our nenstate colleg-es.
THE NONSTATE "PLANTS."
"There aro eight nonstate colleges repre
sented in tho Indiana College Association
Franklin, De Pauw, Moore's Hill, Butler.
Earlhara, Union Christian, Hanover and
Wabash. These colleges own buildings and
grounds aggregating in value more than a
million dollars. They hold endowment
funds amounting to over $1,300,000. Their
combined libraries contain in round num
bers one hundred thousand volumes. Their
laboratories and other educational appli
ances have an aggregate value of not less
"These plants and financial equipments,
representing a total investment closely ap
proximating $3,WO,ouo, are held in- trust by
theso Institutions as free gifts from private
benefactors, to be used for the general ben
efit of the commonwealth. Substantial ac
cessions to these trusts ar received each
year. The educational facilities which thy
provide are open on equal conditions to ail
students who apply, and at no expense
whatever to the state treasury. Kducation
in no respect superior to that which they
afford in a state institution costs the State
we are informed, $130 per annum for each
student, while at the same time the student
of this state institution is at as great an
outlay for personal expense as the student
of tho nonstate college.
"During the collegiate year of 1S03-'J6 over
two thousand students availed themselves
of tho advantages offereel by these colleges.
Their united alumni rolls contain nearly
live thousand names, while many thousand
other students who have not taken degrees
have received a liberal education within
their walls. Among the-se students are to
be found a large proportion of the educated
men who are leaders in the official, profes
sional and business interests of our state
to-day. From the ranks of these students
came many of the men who established
and developed our state system of public
education. A large percentage of the teach
ers in the public schools have been pre
pared for their work, free of charge to the
State, in these nonstate colleges. Upon the
basis of ratistlcs gathered from nfty-four
cities and publisheel In the Indianapolis
Journal of Feb. 15, by the state superin
tendent of public instruction, it appears
that a conspicuous majority of the teach
ing force of the high schools of the State
have been supplied directly by these non
"These colleges are prepared to continue,
with constantly increasing facilities, this
gratuitous contribution to the State's edu
cational work, asking only that conditions
of fair competition with other Institutions
of higher learning be guaranteed to thern.
Theso facts demonstrate that the nonstate
colleges have been and are still bearing a
notable and important share in the work
of poular education without entailing any
drain upon the treasury of the State. Un
tler theso circumstances, it was only just
arid reasonable lor these colleges to urge
that their Interests should be entitled to at
tention at a time when a reorganization of
tho State's educational system was claim
ing tho attention of the Legislature.
"Theso nonstate colleges propagito no
tenets In their institutions and exact no
conditions of their professors or students
that are hostile to the welfare of ;hd com
monwealth: but. on the contrary, they are
in the highest degree patriotic end con
tributory to the best Interests of the State.
They emphatically disclaim any desire to
participate officially in the management of
the State's educational system. Their only
demand has been for conditions of fair and
legitimate competition with institutions
which aro being supported out of the pub
"The nonstate colleges are friendly to the
educational work of the State University,
Purdue and the State Normal School. They
distinctly avow their approbation of th
State Board of lMucation, if only it hhall
bo so constituted as to satisfactorily pro
vide against its inlluonce being used to the
undue advantage of the higher seats of
learning supported by the public funds,
and against themselves. Neither has the
present contention of the nonstate colleges
arisen from any opposition on their part
to the standards of qualification for super
intendents and teachers which were set up
In the so-called 'Geetlng bill. They earn
estly advocate the establishment of such
standards. The complaint of the nonstate
colleges was. and is. this, that such a cen
tralization of authority as exists in the
present organization of the State Board an1
as was provided for in greatly intensified
measure, in the Geeting bill, virtually
placed tho censorship of the superintend
ents and teaches throughout the State in
the hands of Purdue University. Indiana
University and the State Normal School.
CONNECTION WITH THU SCHOOLS.
"Now Purdue University receives Its sup
port from the state treasury on the ground
that It Is a technical school. As such it cer
tainly has much less logical connection with
the common school system of the State
than have the nonstate colleges. Historical
ly it has no connection with the system, as
have they. The work of Indiana University
In its undergraduate department is not es
sentially different from, or of a higher
standard than that done in the nonstate
colleges. Nor are there reasons found
either in the history of the past nor the
conditions of the present why the state col
lege at Bloomington should be In closer re
lation to the common schools than the sev
eral nonstate colleges. If such closer rela
tion exists it Is because the faulty organiza
tion of tho State Board has wrought, in
the face of history and fact, an injustice
to the other colleges which should no longer
be permitted. The academic courses in the
State Normal School are of much lower
grade than those of the nonstato colleges,
and its specific work of providing teachers
for the public schools is shared in a large
devjree by the nonstate colleges. It owes
its existence very largely to the efforts of
the frienels and graduates of the nonstate
"In view of these facts it Is contended
that the ex officio representation of the
three state schools upon the board is a
discrimination against the nonstate schools
which ought not to be perpetuated by
statute. That the State Hoard, as now or
ganized, does actually constitute such a
centralization of influence as has been com
plained of is apparent from the fact that
live out of the seven active members of the
board are directly connected with the three
state institutions and are personally con
cerned In furthering the interests of these
Institutions of learning in tho field of col
lege competition. Four members are
officially connected with the state
schools, viz.: Tho president of the
State University, the president of the State
Normal School, the president of Purdue
University and the state superintendent of
public instruction, who is an ex officio trus
tee of the State Normal School. A fifth
member of the board is an alumnus of the
State University, and a conspicuously ac
tive promoter of Its interests in the Legis
lature, the State Teachers Association and
elsewhere, it is understood that the Gov
ernor's connection with the board is prac
tically an honorary one. It appears, there
fore, that only two out of the seven active
members of the board are free from en
tangling relations with the state schools.
In this respect the Indiana board is abso
lutely unique. ;No other State in the Union
has seen fit thus to turn the organization
of Its State Hoard of Kducation, and the
management of its educational affairs
thiough this board, over to a favored few
of its educational institutions. No good rea
son has been er can be offered why such
prestige should be granteti by law to three
particular schools in Indiana.
"Now the Geeting bill designed to place
the issuing of life licenses for all county
and town superintendents under the dis
cretionary power of tho board, constituted
as has beon described. It certainly was
reasonable to fear that a temptation would
overtake the managers of the state schools
to use their official connection with the
board to promote still further the interests
of their institutions, and that, too, under
conditions which would make such use a
most formidable menace to the patronage
of the nonstate schools. It must be remem
bered that Increasing attendance of stu
dents is important to the state schools as
a source of influence by which to secure
aid from the Legislature. Hence, the temp
tation to secure the iniluence of superin
tendents, for the increase of their patron
age. To pass the Geeting bill, or any sim
ilar bill, and allow the membership of the
state board to remain as now. would place,
by act of the Legislature, a powerful whip
in the hands of the board with which to
bring students into the state schools, who.
except for the official influence brought to
bear upon them by superintendents and
principals, would enter the nonstate col-
"It Is already well known that In many
parts of tho State school officials who are
allies to the State University, Purdue or
the State Normal School advise prospective
college students who look forward to
teacldng as a means of livelihood, that if
they expect to secure desirable positions it
will be best for them to attend some one
of the state institutions. That this ten
dency toward the further organization of
a trust among public school authorities in
the interest of the State Normal. Purdue
and the State University, was liable to be
greatly accelerated under the present or
ganization of the board in case the provi
sions of the Geeting Ull for licensing coun
ty and town superintendtnts became law
did not admit of doubt."
QUEER DIVORCE STORY
STRAXGI2 CHARGES 31 AUG IX TIIH
COMPLAINT OF MRS. MILL1SOX.
She Tell of a Complacent Husband
AVIio Tnken S?,00 to Give Vn
Theophilus MilHson, a traveling salesman
employed by the Vonnegut Hardware Com
pany, is the defendant in a suit for di
vorce brought by his wife, Jennie MilHson.
Yesterday Attorney Pritchard, counsel for
the wife, fded an amended complaint in
Room 1, Superior Court, which tolls the
story of marital difficulties. The complaint
is full of unusual details. Mrs. Minnie La
Danna, a dashing brunette living on Lex
ington avenue, figures prominently In the
story, and, in fact, Is charged by Mrs. MilH
son with being the cause of her domestic
unhappiness. The unhappy wife is a comely
woman of about thirty-five years. Her hus
band is a few years her senior. The couple
have ono child, Minnie E. MilHson, who is
a pretty girl of sixteen. They live in. a
cottage at No. 433 Broadway.
MilHson, it is said, has been prominently
connected with Murphy League work and
has been taking an active Interest In the
Rescue Mission on the South Side. The Mil
lisons were married in Columbus, O., in
1878, but have been residents of Indianapolis
for several years. The amended complaint
is in two paragraphs, the first setting up
the charge of cruel and inhuman treatment.
MilHson, it la charged, has been lavishing
attention on Mrs. La Danna for the last
year. He is charged with having absented
himself from home at certain times during
tho day and night, and with deceiving his
wife and daughter as to his whereabouts.
Mrs. MilHson, according to the complaint,
is confident her husband, during these
periods, was In the company of "the other
woman." She says he has used money for
the support of Mrs. La Danna by refurnish
ing her house, providing her with a new
bicycle and purchasing her a watch and
narlor organ. It is further charged that
.'lillison appeared at tho theater with his
charmer and in other public places. Within
the last month, Mrs. Miliison says, she be
came aware of her husband's conduct and
urged him to cease his attentions to thw
La Danna woman, promising him full wife
lv forgiveness. It is averred that when
Mlllison discovered his misconduct was
known ho became very insolent toward his
wife, asserting that ho had ceased to love
her and openly declared his infatuation for
Minnie La Danna, and vowed he would
marry her. Mrs. Mlllison says her husband
spent much of his time in thLs woman's
home and was known in the neighborhood
as "Mr. Ruse," the "bachelor uncle of Min
nie La Danna," and very rich. It is averred
that the woman, with the consent of Mllli
son, informed lur neighbors that lie wa
an unmarried man and a "bachelor uncle.'
The chief allegation of the complaint re
fers to an alleged contract entered into be
tween Minnie la Danna, her husband and
Theophilus MilHson. As tlio complaint
aver, the defendant agree-d to pay J
Danna Jai) if ho would leave home and let
his wife get a divorce. Mlllison, it is
claimed, then told his wife thai Lm. Danna
was about to bring a suit for tlamages
against him for alienating tho affections of
Mrs. La Danna unless he paid him
Mn. MilHson alleges that her husband re
quested her to join him In a mortgage on
his real estate to raise the mony. The
fdaintlrt scorne-d tho proposition, but says
ier husband sought to turn her daughter
against her and did succeed in enlisting the
sympathies ef the young woman, who urged
her mother to sign a mortgage and "help
papa out of a bad scrape."
Mrs. Mlllison, as appears in the com
plaint, tinally got a property settlement
out of her husband and did join him in ix
mortgage on their real estate The plain
tiff says she received J100 nnd charge that
MilHson paid La Danna $"oo, according to
contract. The latter, It is asserted, has
now left his wlfo and she has applied for
divorce. Mlllison. It is shown, continues to
cultivate the society of Mrs. La Danna,
while his wife and daughter havo been
rushed and humiliated by the public scan
dal which has be-en brought on their home.
Mr. Mlllison asks, in addition to tho de
cree of divorce, the custody of her daughter.
