Compulsory Kdncatlon Lair Likely to
Cause Mach Overcrowding.
Tho public schools will open their doors
to-morrow morning. To-day was the day
originally set but it finally occurred to the
school authoorlties that this was Labor day
and a legal holiday, and the opening was
therefore postponed until to-morrow. The
i\atural increase of population in the city
brings each year a large increase in the
number of pupils, and to accommodate
these there have been erected during the
summer two new buildings—one at North
Indianapolis and one on Park avenue.
However, tho natural increase will be much
more than doubled this year by the fact
that the compulsory education law goes
into effect.
This iaw requires that all children be
tween the ages of eight and fourteen shall
attend some school at least twelve weeks
in the year? if they are physically able.
Superintendent Goss declares that no one
can make an adequate prophecy of how
many more children this law will bring in,
but that it will be l,2t)u at the very lowest.
He says that those brought in by the tru
ant otticer will be an extremely small per
centage of them. The very fact that the
law is on the statute books will be sutlieient
to bring most of them to the schools. The
law is made much easier of enforcement by
the fact that the last Legislature jiassed
what is variously known as the "child
labor” and "factory inspection” law, which
forbids the employment of children under
fourteen years. Factories and large mer
cantile establishments are this year declin
ing to give employment to children, and
these children will naturally come into the
schools. The superintendent does not be
lieve that the two new buildings mentioned
vill come anywhere near accommodating
the increase of pupils, in order to help out,
four empty storerooms have been rented
for emergency schools in various parts of
the city, and at that it is believed that in
at least two of the more crowded districts
they' will have to have half-day sessions,
permitting part of the children to attend

David Akins, of old 3a Church street,
where he had lived over twenty-live years
In one house, died Sunday afternoon at
the City Hospital. He was suffering from
obstruction of the bowels, due to an in
carcerated hernia, and was vomiting the
contents of tho bowels. He was placed upon
the operating table at the hospital, wfth a
view to relieving his condition, if possible,
by surgical procedure as a las* resort. Dr.
W. V. Morgan was present to do the oper
ating, witli the assistance of Dr. George
Nash, who was his physician. Ether was
administered by Dr. Norman E. Jobes, the
house physician and anesthetlser. Before
anestheslon was complete Akins attempted
to clear his throat of mucus, when his heart
gave way and death resulted before he be
came unconscious from the ether. An ex
amination was made by order of the coroner
last night. The heart was found enormously
enlarged and the mitral valves thickened
and Imperfect. The bowels wete black and
gangrenous, and it is regarded as very
doubtful if the proposed operation would
have saved his life.
Mr. Akins was well known on the South
Bide, where he had lived a quarter of a
century and was greatly respected by the
colored people and his white neighbors as
well. He took an active part in Republican
polities. Mr. C. M, Willis, who knew Mr.
Akins wadi, says he was over sixty years
of age.

Slight Clew* Thnt Led to the Arrewt
of Harvey mid Philllpa—Solv
ing n Morder Mystery.
Job Eldridge, a second-hand dealer at 175
Massachusetts avenue, called at the county
jail yesterday afternoon to see James Bur
ton, alias Hennessey, alias Emmett, who
is charged with murder. Job Eldridge will
be an important witness in the Burton trial.
It was Eldridge’s store that three men en
tered for the purpose of burglary on the
night of Jao. 22, when Fireman Frank Red
mond lost his life in pursuit of one of these
thieves. Eldridge went to the jail to see if
he could identify Burton, who, by his own
confession, was one of the three highway
ment who visited Eldridge’s store and who
fired the shot that killed Redmond. Burton
v.as brought out and marched up and
down the corridor in front of the second
hand dealer. Eldridge thought he recog
nized Burton’s walk—a peculiar slouching
gait—but he could not recall the prisoner's
The public is pretty generally familiar
with the crime for which Burton, Harvey
and Phillips are being held. While the two
latter are not directly charged with the
murder they are under Indictment as acces
saries to the crime and for attempted high
way robbery. On the night of Jan. 22 last,
about 6 o’clock in the evening, three men
entered the store of Job Eldridge, on Mas
sachusetts avenue, and tried to hold up the
proprietor. The latter made a great outcry
and got into a struggle with one of the
men. The other two ran as a crowd began
to gather. They got nothing in the store,
as the proprietor had shown a disposition to
thwart them. Neither of the three was
caught. The fellow that grappled with the
proprietor succeeded in getting away and
ran diagonally across Massachusetts ave
nue in the direction of the firehouse. The
firemen heard the cries of “Thieves!” from
the frantic second-hand dealer and started
after the fleeing highwayman. Frank Red
mond overtook the man at the mouth of
an alley a few yards west of the engine
house, and was there shot down. Redmond
died almost instantly.
According to his own confession, James
Burton, the man who was brought here
from the Nashville prison Saturday night,
was the slayer of Redmond. Burton Impli
cates Carl Harvey and Ed Phillips, and
says they were with him in Job Eldridge’s
store. Burton, has told how he met Harvey
and Phillips at the Park Theater an hour
after the murder by appointment, and how
they drove to Greenwood that night and
there separated, Burton going to Louisville,
and from there to Nashville, where he tried
to commmit a daylight robbery and got
into the state penitentiary. Thus far his
only confession has been made to the chief
of police. He has never made a statement
to a newspaper directly. Carl Harvey is a
prisoner at the jail, but Ed Phillips, whose
father has considerable property, is out on
bond. Harvey is about twenty-two years
of age. Most of his life has been spent in
Indianapolis. Since his incarceration at the
Jail ills conduct has been exemplary and
he is now known as a “trusty” about the
kitchen. Yesterday afternoon at the jail
he sat down in the office with the turnkey
and several visitors. He has not the face
of a criminal. He has a frank, open coun
tenance, clear blue eyes and is scrupulously
neat and tidy In appearance. His shoes
were carefully polished yesterday and his
trousers as carefully creased. His shirt front
was immaculate, and from its surface
sparkled a large brilliant. Harvey has not
even the appearance of a “sport.” How
ever, the police do not share his opinion
of himself. They say his record is not of
the best, and the whole department is
agreed that he is “sharp as a steel trap.”
“Did you ever hear of the story of how
we run these fellows down?” asked Super
intendent Colbvrt. ‘‘lt is a real detective
story, but not one of the kind where dark
lanterns figure. Its not an ‘old slueth’
story, but a plain, bare statement of facts.
To start with it was largely a bluff game.
And there was a lot of bluffing on both
sides. There are somfe things about this
case that cannot be told, because there are
too many people involved—som*e things
there are that never will be told. When
this murder was committed there w r as lit
tle to work upon in the way of informa
tion. We knew that the man who killed
R'edmond had thrown away a revolver, for
we found the weapon and have it here
now. We also knew that man had gone
into a barber shop on Massachusetts ave
nue a short time after the killing and had
hurriedly had his mustache cut off. Ho did
not ask to be shaved. This in itself was
suspicious, of course. We got the mus
tache and have it yet, but we didn’t have
the man that had worn it, and hadn't a
ghost of an idea who the man was. The
case went on for a week and the depart
ment was working night and day, l’eaving
nothing undone that could be done. But
it was availing nothing.
“Finally I sent Detectives McGuff and
Wilson into the district where the at
tempted robbery and murder occurred,
with instructions to camp out there. They
wVre instructed to keep a close watch on
everybody that was not above suspicion
and telephone headquarters the moment
they laid eyes on a man who had ever
been ‘crooked.’ They finally found a man.
Next door to this Eldrldge second-hand
store was a feed store owned by a Mr.
Phillips, a very estimable man. He had
a son, Ed Phillips, a young fellow in his
twenties. In the employ of Phillips was
this young fellow. Carl Harvey. We knew
We had been In prison and the detectives
located him in the Phillips feed store.
Harvey was brought to the station house
and 1 went in for a three days’ sitting
with him. The young man was ’game.’
‘You'll be very sorry you ever brought me
here,’ was his first remark to me after I
had him under lock and key. Well, it w r as
a bluff game all around. I realized that
we had done a bold thing in taking charge
of Harvey in this manner, but I felt in
my heart" there was something wrong with
him He did not satisfy me in his replies.
I think I kept Harvey in the office under
lock and key almost constantly for two or
three days, but could get nothing out of
him. When he failed to give me a. satis
factory answer when I asked where he
was the night of the Redmond mur
der, I felt more than ever that he ought to
be held.
“While I had Harvey cooped up we got
some information from Greenwood that set
us to thinking. We heard that on the night
Redmond was killed three men drove into a
livery stable at Greenwood and put up a
rig there. They were all strangers and the
livery man who furnished us this informa
tion "seemed to attach some importance to
the matter. When this information came I
decided on anotlur move. I had been tyiable
to get anything out of Harvey, but natur
ally wondered if it could be that he was
one of the three men who were seen in
Greenwood that night. I called for volun
teers one cold, bitter night, three days after
Harvey was taken into custody. I called
the detective force in and asked who would
undertake a trip to Greenwood across the
country that night. The boys knew it would
be an awful trip, but they didn't weaken.
We decided that McGuff and Tom Stout
should go. They left the city after da-k in
a hack with Carl Harvey. The plan w r as to
see if the liveryman at Greenwood could
identify Harvey. In the event that he did
the detectives were to wire me, and then it
was the plan to arrest Ed Phillips, the
chum of Harvey and the son of Harvey s
employer. At 1 o'clock a message came
from Greenwood that Harvey had been
identified by the livery-stable proprietor.
“Tho nt t step in the case was a bold
one, but it was plain. I came down at 2
o’clock that night and a half hour later
Detective Splann came down. He went to
the Miller block and found Ed Phillips with
a woman. Both were brought to the sta
tion house and I had a talk with both. It
was plain that the woman knew nothing.
Phillips put up a bold front and claimed in
nocence. Later in the morning the detec
tives arrived with Harvey and I had an
other talk with him. It went on this w-ay
for another day, and finally, during one of
our sessions,’ Harvey indulged this remark:
“ 'What are you holding Phillip* for; he
knows nothing.’ That instant 1 was posi
tive I was right concerning both the men
and ordered them looked up as suspects.
The woman was released, for she had no
knowledge of the case. In April the grand
jury found indictments against both men.
Now, right here is a chapter in the case
that can't be made public now, but has di
rect bearing on the murder of Frank Red
mond. It is sufficient to say that I made
a hurried trip to the Columbus, 0.. peniten
tiary and took Carl Harvey with me. I
can say. in tins connection, that it was
learned Harrey had once known a certain
man in the Columbus prison and that this
was the man we wanted to locate. I spent a
day at the prison going over the books of
the institution. When 1 left I had the com
plete Bertillon measurements of one James
Burton, who is nov; in jail. Burton had
left the Ohio penitentiary some time before.
I got a photograph of him. and at onee
sent out circular letters to most of the
jails and prisons in the larger cities of the
South. I had learned that Burton s home
was in Cincinnati, and naturally con
jectured he would be in that neighborhood.
For several weeks we heard of men in dif
ferent places that answered to the descrip
tion, but none of-them panned out. While
I was yet suffering from the results of a
very disastrous runaway accident I got a
telegram from the chief of police of Nash
ville. Tenn., asking me to come there in
person, as he believed he had located Bur
ton in the Nashville prison.
“Just as soon as I got able to travel I put
off to Nashville, accompanied by the livery
man at Greenwood. Reaching Nashville,
we found our man was in the penitentiary,
serving a six years’ sentence. We went to
the prison and were shown ’James Fennes
sey.’ But he perfectly filled the Ber
tillon measurements and I was reasonably
sure he was Burton. The Greenwood man
recognized him the instant he laid eyes on
him. He declared there was no mistake
that this was one of the trio that had
driven into his stable the night of Jan. 22.
The Greenwood liveryman had already
identified Phillips, as well as Harvey, and
now the chain of evidence was complete.
I asked for a private talk with Burton, or
Hennessey, and he broke .down and told
me everything. He gave every detail of
the tragedy, how he arrived in Indianapolis
from Cincinnati that afternoon and ar
ranged for the robbery with Harvey and
Phillips, and how he killed Frank Red
mond while the latter was pursuing him.
He said the killing was an accident, that
he did not mean to kill the fireman, and
that he only fired to avoid capture. He de
clared t 6 me that he did not know? he had
killed Redmond until he met Harvey and
Phillips at the Park Theater after it was
all over. From Redmond’s story I learned
that he was the man who had his mus
tache shaved off in the Massaehusetts
avenue barber shop that same night.”
Chief Colbert gav© the details of the two
trips to Nashville after Burton and of the
last successful one. He declares it does not
matter whether Burton sticks to his con
fession or not. “We’ve got the evidence
against these men complete and can con
vict them without this confession. In fact,
I would rather Burton had not made it.
The glory of this thing belongs to no one
man, but to the department. Every man
in it did what he could towards the cap
ture of these men.” Young Harvey thinks
the newspapers have not treated him fairly
in this casp. He says he has been raised
in Indianapolis and there are many people
who know that he is not the bad man he
has been portrayed. He admits having been
in prison for one term, but denies that he
was ever in serious trouble before he was
sent to the Columbus penitentiary. Harvey
declines to say whether or not he knows
Burton and will not talk about the ease.
Phillips, before he was released on bail,
also refused to talk of it. Attorney Henry
Spaan will represent Harvey.
Burton still refuses to make a statement
to the newspapers. The description of him
sent out by the police early in the summer
was as follows: “Now about thirty years
of age, five feet seven inches and a half
tall, light blue eyes, dark brown hair, sandy
complexion, forehead high and square, eyes
straight and apart, ears large and close,
nose medium and turned up, chin large and
round, medium built, cut scar top right
hand, India ink marks—red and blue—
spread eagle, arrows and girl’s head sur
rounded by dots on inside left forearm.
The police claim Burton was first sent to
prison in Ohio when nineteen years of age.
Tie was again convicted of burglary in
Portsmouth, CL. being released from Colum
bus, July 3, 1896. He was sent up the last
time with a man named Franklin.
A Number of Dintingniclied Men Will
Be Present—Good Railroad
Charles A. Bookwalter, who is chairman
of the executive committee having charge of
the arrangements for the sixteenth na
tional encampment of the Sons of Veter
ans, has received mail from different parts
of the country that show that this en
capment will be the largest one the organ
ization has ever held. Responses from the
Invitations to the district organizations
throughout the country show that a num
ber of organizations are preparing to start,
among them being many uniformed camps.
A number of veterans and several Grand
Army posts have signified a willingness to
attend the encampment.
Governor Mount has promulgated to the
adjutant general an order for permitting
armed bodies of Sons of Veterans from
other States to enter this State, providing
they carry no ammunition. The committee
is making arrangements to entertain the
visitors in great style and to show that In
dianapolis ranks high for her hospitality
and to advance her reputation as a con
vention city.
It is desired that the city should bo deco
rated to receive the visitors and to attain
this the decoration committee will make a
personal canvass of all business houses and
residents to decorate their premises if pos
sible for the whole week and especially on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Partic
ularly on Friday, as the parade will be
held on that day. The reception committee
has arranged for an informal reception to
the visiting delegations at the Denison
House on Wednesday evening. The recep
tion will be tendered by the reception com
mittee and the local camps of the Sons
of Veterans, assisted by the various G. A.
R. posts and the W. R. C. A number of
State Governors intend visiting the city
during the encampment and they, together
with the prominent officers and past offi
cers of the Sons of Veterans, G. A. R. and
Women’s Relief Corps, will be formally re
ceived in the corridors of the Statehouse
on Thursday evening by Governor Mount
and the state officers. This reception will
be an elaborate affair and the formal dress
will be the full uniform of the Sons of Vet
erans. The Governor’s staff is expected to
attend in full uniform, together with the
officers of the Sons of Veterans, making
the reception quite a military affair that is
seldom seen in Indianapolis. Governor
Mount and Custodian Vest, of the State
house, have tendered the organization the
use of the Hall of the House of Repre
sentatives and the Senate chamber for the
meetings during the week. The Ladies’ Aid
Society will meet in the Senate chamber
and the delegate body of the Sons of Yret
ei ans will use the House of Representatives
Half-fare rates have been secured on all
railroads, and the tickets will be good on
all dates between Sept. Sand 11. The ho
tels have reduced the rates for the con
vention, and arrangements have been made
for the accommodation of the visitors in
private houses, should the hotels be inad
e The* headquarters will be in the Denison
House, and the executive committee will re
main in charge to give any information or
assistance wanted.
The parade will be held Friday afternoon
at 1:30 o’clock, with Colonel Harold C. Me
grew as chief marshal. Ben Harrison
Camp, No. 356, will occupy a position in the
parade, with full attendance, as will also
Ruckle Camp, of this city. The parade will
be purely a military and Sons of Veterans
parade, and many uniformed camps are
preparing to bring with them their own
bands of music. Altogether between three
thousand and four thousand visitors are ex
pected in the city.
Colonel R. S. Thompson is in the city, to
gether with most of the members of his
staff, rendering all the assistance possible
to the local executive committee in their
efforts to arrange the reception of the com
mandery in chief. Senator J. B. Foraker, of
Ohio, and General Lew Wallace have been
invited to attend the camp tire in Tom
linson Hall Friday night, and It is be
lieved they will attend. Neither has given
a definite answer to the invitation as yet.
Commander Dodge, of the Indiana Divb'on
of the G. A R., Governor Mount Past
Commander-in-ehtef I. N. Walker, of the
G. A. R., and Past Commander A. O.
Marsh, of Winchester, will participate in
the encampment. Mrs. C. H. Brown, of La
grange. Ind., who has become familiar to
the members of the order, having been
given ovations on her appearance to sing
the national hymn of the Sons of Veterans,
“The Banner of Beauty and Glory,” has
consented to attend the encampment, and,
assisted by a local quartet, will sing patri
otic song*

MUNCIE, Ind., Sept. s.—The final meet
ing of the young men in charge of the prep
arations for the third annual state Labor
day celebration in this city to-morrow was
held at the National Hotel this evening by
Grand Marshal William Tobin and his
thirty aids and marshals. All programmes
have been completed and preparations are
being perfected to entertain at least cal
culations 15,000 strangers here to-morrow.
Word has been received that great delega
tions are coming from all towns and cities
within a radius of fifty miles. Indianapolis
promises to-night to send at least twb
trainloads, and Marion will do as well,
while Anderson reports that it will require
three engines to convey their crowd here.
All other towns will send big crowds, as a
very cheap rate has been secured on all
roads, and the crowds began to arrive to
night, each incoming train being crowded.
The parade is announced to start at 10:30
o'clock, but it will be held for the last spe
cial trains, and will not occur much before
noon. After the parade there will be
speaking at the public square, and the
afternoon enjoyed at the fair grounds,
where a big free programme will be carried
out, consisting of horse and bicycle races.
The free-for-all pace has some of the best
horses in the country, and Cincinnati, In
dianapolis and Chicago cyclers are here in
great numbers.
Library Hours.
At the School Board meeting Friday
night it was decided to close the delivery
department of thu public library at 9
o'clock instead of 10 o’clock. This will be
in force on all nights except Saturday.
The reading room will be open until 10
o’clock. This was done to economize on
