ENCAMPMENtT OHIo In! Truln with Com mnnder-in- Clilef Rue This Evening. The official train containing the com mander-in-chief of the* Sons of Veterans, J. E. Rake, and his staff will arrive here some time this evening. One will also ar rive from the West during the day, with a large number of Sons of Veterans, and there will be an informal reception tendered .them this evening. From reports from Cin cinnati it is gathered that the camp there will try to get the next encampment of the 8. of V. at Cincinnati. At Cincinnati the Sons of Veterans of the East and Southeast are to meet and thence proceed to this city In a body. J. E. Rake, commander-in-chier, and 150 delegates will arrive at Cincinnati this morning, where they will be received by the committee appointed to receive the delegacy. The committee are: W. E. Bun dy, F. O. Wilkinson, William L. Davis, A. E. B. Stevens, W. W. Peare, L. A. Ireton, W. M. Fames, D. Joseph, J. A. Caldwell and A. B. L. Booth. Then the delegates will be joined by the Cincinnati Camp and all will arrive here to-night over the C., 11. A- D. The Louisville Camp will arrive at the same time and all will march in parade to the headquarters. To-morrow the regular sessions of the en campment will begin, those of the Sons or Veterans being held in the House of Rep resentatives and those of the Ladies' Aid Society in the Senate chamber. To-morrow evening a general reception will in- hold in the Governor’s parlors at the Statehouse, to which the general public is invited, ReLeiHl-MrMillnn Match To-Morrow. “Farmer” Burns est Omaha yesterday afternoon and will arrive hero to-day. He is a big figure in the wrestling world and will attract much attention in his capacity of refer* e of the McLeod-McMillan wrest ling match at tin* Grand to-morrow night. The match will be one of the finest ever Been here, as the men are heavy weights of superb build and are both in the pink of rendition. They will go on the mat promptly at 8:30 to-morrow evening. The match is catch-as-eatoh-can, three fulls in five. THE NEW MILEAGE BOOK - BECOMING POPULAR WITH THOSE ENTITLED TO TRAVEL OX IT. Travel nml Tonnage Beyond Parallel in September—satisfactory Earn ing; m of Indiana. Rond*. Daniel Donough, general ticket agent at the Union Station, states that the new mik?age is selling much better than he had anticipated it would, and no more com plaint is heard than there was regarding the old style of mileage. He thinks the scalpers are already' feeling the effects of this nonsealpable mileage being put on the market. H. M. Bronson, assistant general passenger agent of the Big Four, says the new mileage is selling better than, has the old style of mileage of late, and there is a perceptible increase in revenue from local travel, which now cannot travel on mileage scalped, but must put up 3 cents per mile. George Haylor, district passenger agent of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton, says ho has sold a number of the books and has had no complaint worthy of note re garding the new issue. He is still selling the old style of book, good over the Monon and the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton. W. W. Richardson, district passenger agent of the Pennsylvania lines, and the Van dalia, says the new book is being purchased freely, and the commercial travelers, for whose special benefit it is issued, are be ginning to talk very favorably of the mile age, which is good over thirty-two roads and saves their carrying a half dozen or more mileage books of different lines. George T. Gunnip, general agent of the passenger department of the Santa Fe for several central States, says he has traveled a good deal in this territory and is sur prised to see how much of the new mileage is offered on the trains, showing the trav eling men are disposed to give the new issue a fair trial. The Railroad Gazette in its current issue does not take as hopeful a view of the new mileage as do the pas senger officials quoted above. The Gazette says; “The new interchangeable mileage ticket, which was to clear the traffic atmosphere in the Central States like a balloon full of ozone, has had most of the bouyancy knocked out of it, even before it begins its mission. The Chicago, Indianapolis & Louis ville refuses to honor the tickets, and its name has been scratched o'* from all the tickets thaf have been sols. Mileage tickets are used largely for competitive business between Chicago and the Ohio river,(Cin cinnati and Louisville), and this road com plains that the other roads do not live up to an agreement by which they were to lengthen the time of some of their trains. With time schedules as they are. the C., (. & L. feels at a disadvantage, and so re serves the option of selling tickets to eom potltive points at less than the price asked for the 1,000-mile books (net 2 cents a mile.) The Erie and the Toledo, St. Louis <fc Kansas City have stood aloof all the time, so that the scheme, based on this ticket, for corm ting the long-standing ticket abuses in this scalp-ridden territory, has to be launched with three big holes in it. Tt is a pity that the device embodying such decided improvemehts on former conditions cannot have a thorough trial (and indeed it is possible that it may, in spite of the drawbacks), but every one must recognize that at best this is a remedy which falls very short of meeting the difficulties that need to bo cured. A mileage ticket is a nuisance at best. With it honest conduc tors make mistakes, careless ones let the company be cheated, and dishonest ones themselves do the cheating, finding plenty of passengers to co-operate with them. Re quiring the coupons to be surrendered at the ticket offices prevents some of the evil, but the requirement is such an irritation to drummers that it largely neutralizes their satisfaction with the discount they re ceive. Even it such a ticket were justified by good business reasons, there Is no equitable ground for making such a large difference between the price asked per mile and the price (3 cents per mile) for single trip tickets. Citizens who believe in regu lating rates by specific legislation stick to the theory that the rate to all passengers should be precisely the same, and a dis count of 33 1-3 per cent., while, not entirely without justification, fails to satisfy a suf ficient proportion of the people who travel to offset the dissatisfaction of those who want low' rates for everybody. The use of mileage tickets for regular through com potititve business Is, of course, a perver sion of the mile-coupon form and ought to be abolished. The mileage ticket never would have come into such general use for that purpose if someone had not thought it a fine arrangement for making scalping appear respectable, but of course every one now knows just how thin a disguise this is and there can, be no good reasons for continuing it.” May Be Permitted to Die. For the time being all effort to get all of the Western lines together in one general meeting for the purpose of discussing the future of the Was torn Passenger Associa tion and for the further purpose of strengthening that organization has been given up. It was found that the Southern Pacific did not look with favorable eyes upon the plan, and there was trouble with the Northern transcontinental lines as well. The meeting will be held, but it is likely that it will be later than at first proposed. It Is possible that the association may pass out of existence or undergo another reor ganization if the meeting is not successful in its object of strengthening the power of the association, as it is generally believed that it cannot continue for any great length of time with so many strong lines on the outside. llnrd Coal Kates Cut. Rates on hard coal from Chicago to the Missouri river took a tumble yesterday. The reduction amountß to 33 1-3 per cent. For the last twelve months the rate has been $3 a ton. On and after Sept. 20 the tariff will be $2 a ton. The Alton precipitated the trouble by notifying Chairman Midgley, of the Joint Western Freight Bureau, that it had decided to make the reduction on the date named. All the other roads interested decided to meet the reduced rate, not only from Chicago to Kansas City, but also to Atchison, Leavenworth, St. Joseph and Omaha. The Alton claims its competitors have been cutting the rate recently. Personal, Loenl and General Notes. Plans are being prepared for a union passenger station at East St. Louis. The Big Four on Sunday carried into Louisville off the Michigan division 986 ex cursionists. The Lake Erie & Western earned in August $324,872, an increase over August, 1896. of $52,•59. The stockholders of the Lake Erie & Western will hold their annual meeting in Peoria, Oct. 6. The Ohio Falls car works are building one hundred box cars, 50.0U0 pounds capacity, for the Memphis & Charleston. M. W. Mansfield, superintendent of the Indianapolis & Vincennes, has gone to Pittsburg to be absent a week. D. B. Martin, passenger traffic manager of the. Baltimore & Ohio, is spending this week going over the lines east and west. The Chicago & Rock Island has been test ing the Brown system of discipline for one year, and is very well pleased with results. It is stated that the Lima Northern is to be extended to Milford Center, where con nection can be made with the Panhandle lines for Columbus. W. H. McDoel, vice president, and gen eral manager of the Monon lines, who has been in New York for two weeks, is ex pected home to-morrow. C. E. Shaft, general manager of the Big Four lines, was in the city yesterday, and last evening accompanied Division Super intendent Bayler to St. Louis. Mr. W. P. Orland has been appointed master mechanic of the St. Louis division of the Big Four, with office at Mattoon, 111., vice G. S. McKee, resigned. Union Station officials state that travel through August and thus far this month has been double that of May and June or any of the preceding months of the year. The miners’ strike has cut into the rev enue of the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, the line earning in August but $294,475, a de crease as compared with August, 1896, of $2,056. Alexandria, on the Michigan division of the Big Four, is fast becoming the most in portant station on that division, and bids fair to distance some of the best stations on the Big Four system. The new Brooks engine No. 111, on the Monon, a day or two ago. hauling four vestibuled cars, ran three consecutive miles at a speed of a mile in forty-eight seconds, the best spurt of speed ever made on the Monon. A movement io on foot to build a road to connect the Philadelphia & Reading with the Boston fit Albany, which, if accont THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1897 plished, would be a thrust at the New York, New Haven & Hartford and its consoli dated lines. The Chicago. Burlington & Quincy will circulate 200,000 copies of its monthly publi cation. the Corn Belt. The current num ber contains a description of a special in spection train the expenses of which were borne by the company. A gentleman whose predictions are usual ly quite correct says the Monon will have control of the Chicago & Southeastern within thirty days, and that within sixty days the work of extending the line to Muncie will be In progress. The Commercial Travelers’ National League will hold its first annual conven tion in Rochester, N. Y., on Sept. 13 and 14. It is said they propose to side with the scalpers and try and defeat the aims of the New York anti-scalping law. The five hundred new cars the Erie is having built at the Michigan Peninsular car works will, have steel axles, the ’97 Fox truck and pressed steel bolsters, and it is claimed will be the best car made. They will have 60,000 pounds capacity. Hunter C. Leake has succeeded M. R. Spellman as general agent of the Illinois Central at New Orleans, a very responsible position, which Mr. Speilman has tilled since leaving the Indianapolis, Decatur & Western as its superintendent. It is said that the Southern Pacific has under contemplation the erection of an im mense elevator at New Orleans. The Kan sas City, Pittsburg & Gulf is turning large quantities of grain over to the Southern Pacific for export via New Orleans. As the lowa Central begins the year with anew president and eight new directors as a result of the stockholders’ meeting, bet ter things are looked for under their di rection. Os late the road has been showing some very handsome increases in earnings. The annual convention of the National Railway' Master Blacksmiths’ Association opened In Chicago yesterday with an at tendance of one hundred. The sessions will continue three days. The entire timJ will be given to papers on technical sub jects. The Chesapeake & Ohio is making rapid progress iu rebuilding the piers and store houses burned a few months ago at New port News. One of the piers is completed and the material for the other is arriving. Both piers are built fire proof as nearly us possible. The John Stevenson Car Company has purchased fifteen acres at South Elizabeth, N. J., and will build a large car building plant, which will furnish employment to several hundred men. The Baltimore & Ohio is constructing a branch to the grounds. The Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf will give a complimentary trip to the mer chants of Omaha, Kansas City and other neighboring \\ esterr. cities in order to work up trade and familiarize the merchants with the possibilities of new' business in South America. Local freigni agents say that very seldom is there so large a tonnage of merchandise loaded and unloaded over the platforms of the city freight depots as yesterday. Many of the wholesale houses yesterday employed extra teams in the afternoon to get their goods to the depots. Th,e overhauling that Oscar Murray, re ceiver, and practically at the head of the Baltimore & Ohio, is credited with having given the management of the Baltimore <Sc Ohio Southwestern is bearing good fruit. In August the road earned $575,615, an in crease over August, 1896, of $50,456. The opening of the route via Ogden is proving very beneficial in a business way to the Missouri Pacific, the Chicago, Burling ton & Quincy and the Santa Fe roads, giv ing them access to the North Pacific terri tory over the lines o* the Denver & Rio Grande and the Rio Grande Western. An idea of how heavy travel is may be formed from the fact that yesterday Pan handle Train 5 turned over to the Vandalia at Indianapolis seventy-four passengers for points west of here, and Train 21, at noon, had fifty-four passengers for the Vandaiia. For several days past west-bound through business has been exceedinly heavy. Governor Ellerbe, of South Carolina, threatens to take steps by which the char ter of every railroad in the State will be forfeited unless they stop bringing intoxi cating liquors into the State for the use of original-package houses, it is stated that the railway managements are not in the least disturbed by the Governor’s threats. Mrs. J. D. Anderson, who has been a tele graph operator on the Wabash for twenty five years, has resigned. She began work in the master mechanic’s office at Toledo, in 1872. In 1874 she w'as transferred to the office at Huntington, Ind., where she has been until the present time. Sire will now devote, her time to household duties, being in very comfortable circumstances. To-day at Colorado Springs the Colorado Midland road will be sold at auction. The Crobability is at present that it will be ought in by the reorganizing committee, although it is known that there are several roads that are anxious to buy it for them selves. It is not likely, however, that any successful competition will bo made to the bids of the reorganization committee. Some of the employes on the Michigan division are again agitating the question of putting their pay back to that of D92. “It is somewhat singular,’’ says a Big Four man, “that the men on this division are in variably the first to agnate matters refer ring to pay, time, etc. otill, some of the engineers have made $175 a month of late, and the other trainmen wages in propor tion. John Chesborough, general passenger agent of the Baltimore & Ohio Southwest ern, is quoted by a personal friend as say ing that he had not been asked to resign and he did not think he should send in his resignation. In passenger circles the opinion prevails that if there is any truth in the report that O. P. McCarty is to succeed Mr. Chesborough on the Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern, D. B. Martin, pas senger traffic manager of the Baltimore & Ohio, will be instrumental in bringing about the change. There is a row between somo of the West ern lines regarding a circular that has been sent out, stating that the Atchison and Great Western were chiefly instrumental in getting the low rates for the excursions of the Merchants’ Association to Chicago, and asking the recipient of that circular to re member the fact in coming to Chicago. This circular has made some of the other roads very warm, and they assert that a great injustice has been done them, and claim that th*y had as much a share in making the low rates as either of the two roads which it is claimed m the circular were chiefly instrumental in getting the low rates through. President Ingalls, of the Chesapeake & Ohio, in his annual statement, just made public, show's a heavier trainload and a lower average ton-miie rate than any other of the trunk lines, and there seems no probability that this road will lose its pre eminence in that respect. The Chesapeake & Ohio trainload for the year ending June 30 was 350 tons ahead of any other record. Since IS9O the company has improved its trainload 115 tons, or 50 per cent.; from 225 to 352 tons in 1897. The increase over 1896 is 27 tons. The Lake Shore, with its light grades, has an average trainload 30 tons less than the Chesapeake & Ohio, though the Lake Shore's average is, of course, much reduced by its large amount of branch traffic, while the Chesapeake & Ohio probably has a much smaller propor tion of miscellaneous freight, w'hich does not make such heavy carloads. Below' are some of the heaviest trainloads reported: Chesapeake & Ohio. 352 tons; New Y'ork Central & Hudson River. 268 tons; Great Northern, 256 tons; Lake Shore & Michigan Southern, 322 tons. Bonnoii Denies the Agreement. Officers of the home life insurance com panies are indignant over the attacks upon their methods, made, as they claim, by the agents of the “old line” corporations of the East, and doclare that the only war rant for the attack lies in the fact that the home companies are writing ten times as much insurance as the old companies have been able to pick up in Indiana. William Bosson, the secretary of the Interstate Life, called at the auditor’s office yesterday and insisted that the alleged agreement between the founders of his company was a fabrica tion out of whole cloth, that no such agreement had been entered into. The agreement exhibited to the auditor was not the original, but purported to be a copy, with the signatures typewritten. “The Interstate.” said Mr. Neal, chief clerk of the insurance department, yester day, “was organized under the acts of 18s3. The only charters in existence under that law that I know of are that one and the Hoosior State, at Richmond, both of which incorporated before the new law went into effect.” “Would It be possible to exercise closer supervision under the present law if the department had more help?” was asked. “We could use more help in analyzing the statements, but that is the only way unless we should keep men nosing about watching for violations of the law. So long as they comply with the law r we are bound not to interfere with their business, and when they violate it we are pretty sure to hear of it from competitors.” Total Assessuieitts In the State. The clerks in the audttor’s office yesterday figured up the total assessments of the cor porate property of the State. The totals are as follows: Railroads, $154,811,971; tele graph and telephone, $3,176,395. sleeping-car companies, $438,422.50; express companies, $1,913,089; net increase of corporations ana individuals on appeals from county boards, $2,331,959. Entire total, $162,701,786.50. A GARBAGE PROCESSION IT PASSES DOWN HADLEY AVENUE FROM MORNING TILL NIGHT. ♦ Anna Vetter, a Property Ovrner, Seek* to Stop It liy Injunction—ll. F. Voigt’* Alleged Wife. The woes of the garbage man seem to increase, and now' he is to be dragged into the Superior Court to show' why he should not be restrained from driving his wagons along a certain suburban thoroughfare. His latest trouble grows out of the suit brought yesterday against the Indianapolis Sani tary Company and C. H. Ross, George Ab bott, Ernest Buehnlng, John L. Major, Lambert Krumholtz, James W. Lanktree. The plaintiff is Anna Vetter, who has property on Hadley avenue, West Indian apolis. The plaintiff resides on this thor oughfare and has tenants near her. She recites the fact that the Indianapolis San itary Company has a contract W’ith the city of Indianapolis to remove the daily accu mulation of garbage and slops to the Sellers farm, and that in carrying out this con tract the wagons owned by the defendant company are driven along the thorough fare on which she and her tenants reside. She estimates that 150 wagons reeking with the foulest odors pass her house every day. She charges that many of the wagons are improperly covered and are not tit to be used in this kind of work. Other of the vehicles are neither air nor water tight, arid from them drip offensive liquids, it is charged that the sauitui y company also has the contract for removing dead animals from the city, arid they, too, are carried along Hadley avenue. All of these things complained of, the plaintiff avers, produces harmful sanitary conditions. She says the constant sight of the procession of garbage wagons, with a knowledge of what they contain, is disgusting and nauseating. On this qccount the plaintiff charges that her property is depreciating in value and she is unable to rent her property satisfactor ily. She demands that the court restrain the sanitary company from sending its wagons along Hadley avenue in front of her premises. SHE WAS NOT HIS WIFE. Property of Henry F. Voigt Turned Over to His Father. The dispute over the estute of Henry F. Voigt, who died a few weeks ago, was settled yesterday by Probate Commissioner O’Bryan, who made an investigation of the matter. It will be remembered that Jennie Voigt, claiming to be the widow of Henry Voigt, was appointed administratrix of his estate and gave a bond. Immediately aft erward the father of Henry F. \ oigt pro tested against the appointment, contending that his son had no wife. The attorney' for the woman made the statement that she was a wife of Henry F. Voigt by virtue of a common law 7 marriage entered into several years before. Judge O'Bryan yes terday decided that the woman was not the wife of Henry F. Voigt and that he was never married to her. She was in structed to make a report to the court of the property 7 in her hands, which she did The father of Henry E*. Voigt w r as named as the administrator of hiß estate and fur nished a bond of $2,000. COURTS OPEN AGAIN. Tlie Injunction Again*! Irvington llrick Street Reing Heard. The three Superior Courts and the Cir cuit Court opened yesterday 7 for the fall term. The amount of business which has accumulated during the vacation, together with eases on the docket at the close of the summer term, is about the same as last year. In the Circuit Court yesterday the time was devoted to the settlement of claims and a few cases were dismissed. The interest in the Superior Court w r as 'in Room 2, where the suit of Jonathan J. Roach and others to prevent the town of Irvington from building anew brick pave ment on Washington street, was being tried by court. Aug. i the trustees of the tow 7 n of Irvington were temporarily 7 restrained from letting the contract for the pavement. The point at issue now is whether the in junction shall be made permanent or not. In tlie Divorce Court*. A divorce suit against Johanna Griffin, which has been pending in the Superior Court for some time, w 7 as dismissed yester day 7 by the plaintiff, John Griffin, and a new one filed. Griffin has a sorry story of domestic disturbance. He was married to the defendant in 1888 and avers she bos made it lively for him. He says she is pro fane in her talk and is addicted to strong drink. He mentions an instance when she ran him off the premises, and he says he is in great terror of her. He charges that she has threatened his life and has an nounced she would have one of her sons kill him. In short, the plaintiff says he is done with her. Mary 7 C. Maynard has sued Thomas S. Maynard for divorce, alleging cruel and in human treatment. She says he has as- # saulted her with a knife, for which offense* he is now 7 serving time in the workhouse. The plaintiff w T ants her maiden name, Mary C. Grose, restored. Dessa Greeson sues James A. Greeson for separation on the grounds of desertion. He left, her in 1895 and did not return until she had recovered from an illness. In Febru ary, 1897, he again left her. Once the de fendant struck her and she cried, but she says the sight of her tears seemed to arouse him to greater fury 7 .

In Some Districts Pnplls Have to Go a Long; Distance to Reach Tlieir Grades. At 9 o’clock yesterday morning, a week earlier than usual, the schools of Indian apolis opened to receive the 21,000 pupils, more or less, for a period of ten months. Though the sessions begin a week earlier than usual, yet for the first two weeks there will be but half-day sessions. This gives both teacher and pupil an opportun ity to accustom themselves to the confine ment which, during such warm weather as now prevails, and following after a vaca tion season, is somewhat irksome. After the first two weeks it is presumed that pupils will have been graded correctly, books and the necessary equipment for the term will have been secured and every thing will be in readiness for the beginning of the hard work which is to follow. There is very little to distinguish the opening of the public schools this year from the same thing which has occurred in the city for years in the past. There were the same bright smiles upon the faces of the children, to whom anything in the nature of a change is pleasant as long as it is new. Most of them are glad that school has bbgun again, for it brings them new and pleasant associations. After a few ■weeks the dally grind of the schoolroom will become distasteful and they will sigh for the vacation again. There were present yesterday the new pupils, accompanied by parents, guardians or older sisters. It was anew thing to many of them and not a few were frightened. Some of the young sters had had the advantage of a kinder garten training and to them the school had no terrors. There were a number of new teachers this year and according to the custom, they were taken from the training school of the city and from the graduates of the Indianapolis high and manual train ing schools. It is impossible to get any figures on the attendance. Superintendent Goss has re ceived reports from all the teachers, and from the few he has glanced over he is of the opinion that a decided increase over last year will be shown. Including the in crease from taking in the schools of the suburbs recently annexed, he believes the increase will be in the neighborhood of three thousand. Last year the schools all over the city were crowded and several temporary buildings were used for school purposes. The northwestern part of the city wa crowded on account of the annexation of North Indianapolis, without school facilities. The new building in this suburb has accommodated the pupils of its dis trict so that this section of the city is not overcrowded. The northeastern part of the city has anew building on Park avenue and old Fifteenth street, which will relieve the strain in that direction. It is believed that the first term will start off with all pupils accommodaed fairly well. There is still lacking a satisfactory ar rangement in all the buildings. In buildings Nos. 2. 10 and 29 there are no eighth grades. In these buildings there are many lower grade pupils and the higher pupils are forced to walk from No. 2 to No. 3, from No. 10 to Nos. 1 and 27 and from No. 29 they must go to No. 45. The compulsory school iaw is expected to send from fifteen hundred to two thousand children to tne public schools this year who would other wise be running the streets or working in factories and stores. This will give the schools about 20 per cent, more pupils than they have ever had before. There are no changes this year in text-books. Leniiinouski’n Title. To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: Mr. Goodwin, in the Journal of the 6th Inst., made a valuable contribution to our stock of knowledge respecting the author of the “Life of Bonaparte,” but he claims that Lemanouski was a count and not a colonel. "What his rank was in the army is unknown to me and he may have been called count at Evansville, where Goodwin knew him, but it is certain that in Henry county, where he lived for several years, his title was colonel. In the feudal system the two words have substantially the same mean ing. The count commanded the troops of his country under the duke in the kings’ wars, and might properly have been colonel as the equivalent of count. The author’s title is of no consequence, and it may have been given him by brevet, as is the custom in Kentucky and some other States as a mark of distinction, and the real question is: Did he write the book? I have ex pressed the opinion in a former communi cation that he did. and placed myself in accord with all who have written on the subject. Tiie only doubt in my mind arises from the fact that, so far as known, he never communicated to any one, even his most intimate friends, that tie was the author. Men usually have soqie friends to whom they are willing to confide such se crets. But, considering all the facts and circumstances, the probability is strong that he wrote the book. M. I* BUNDY. New Castle, Sept. 7. BURTON IS IDENTIFIED WILLIAM PRUITT SAW HIM RUNNING FROM JOB ELDRIDtiE’S STORE. Also Su w Him Kill Redmond—Man Who Saw Him Buy a Cap Also Recognizes Him. The identity of James Burton as the man who murdered Fireman Frank Red mond on the nignt of Jan. 22 Is becoming strongly established, notwithstanding Bur ton's change of tactics regarding his con fession. Superintendent Colbert said yes terday that Burtcfn would be convicted on facts to be established in court, and not upon any confession which he may have made. The confession will not be made a part of the prosecution, as the police are confident that the crime can be placed to Burton’s account without difficulty and in a most positive manner. What part Edward Phillips Is to play In the trial is not made known by the police, but It was on information from him that Burton was located, and it will probably be In the linfe of his conduct to tell all he knows about the case on the witness stand. Then if the theory of the police that Phillips, Bur ton and Harvey attempted to rob Job Eldridge and that Burton shot Redmond in making his escap'e is true, the first posi tive step in the case will be established. Yesterday a number of people called at the jail to identify Burton. It is well established that the murdvrer of Redmond had to fight and bluff nis way out of Job Eldridge’s store; that he ran through the alley at the mouth of which Redmond was shot; that he purchased a cap at Busch man’s store, on Fort Wayne avenue; that he was shaved in Kline’s barber shop on Massachusetts avenue, and that he was driven to Greenwood that night; that he spent the night at F. O. Hoyt’s hotel, and took an early morning train for the South. Yesterday William Pruitt took a look at Burton and was positive that he was the man who attempted to rob Eldridge. Pruitt was passing the store when he saw two men run out, and heard Eldridge's screams. He started in the store in time to see the third robber coming out past the hanging lamp. He had a good oppor tunity to see the man. and intend’ed to make an effort to stop him, but the robber placed a pistol in his face and passed on out the door. Pruitt ran to the door after him and saw him fall in the street, get up and run across. He also saw the fireman run after him and saw the flash and heard the shot fired which killed Redmond. Pruitt is positive that the third robber is the man who killed Redmond, and is equal ly positive that Burton is the third, rob ber. He said Burton is somewhat fleshier than on the night of the murder. A young man by the name of Wilson, who is employed at L. S. Ayres & Co.’s store, identified Burton as the man who bought a cap at Buschman’s store a few minutts after the murder. He was in the store at the time, and his brother waited on the man. Wilson says the man looked frightened, was out of breath from run ning, and in several ways was a sus picious character. On this account Wilson made a special ‘effort to obtain a good view of the man’s face. He says he would never forget Burton on account of his pe culiar eyes. He is positive in his identifi cation. Burton now looks more like he did when hfe committed the murder than when he was seen at the Nashville prison or when brought back he*re Saturday. Saturday he had about two weeks’ growth of beard. His beard and mustache grows rapldy, and yesterday when his beard was shaved off there was lfeft a fairl-v heavy mustache, which promises to become the long mus tache such as was shaved off the murderer at Kline’s barber shop. GREENWOOD MEN IDENTIFY HIM. A most important identification was that by F. O. Hoyt, of Greenwood. Hoyt and an employe of his, William Pfeek, accom panied Sui>erintendent Colbert on the first trip to Nashville. Hoyt had a lpng talk with Burton in prison, and he says that Burton recognized him and talked with him about having been at Greenwood and stopping at Hoyt’s hotel over night. Yes terday Burton gazed at Hoyt blankly, de claring he did not know him. He could not remember having fever seen him. “Don’t you remember seeing me at the Nashville prison?” asked Hoyt. “No.” “I was there with Superintendent Col bert the first time.” “I remember Colbert’s yisit,” replied Burton, “but I don’t remember you.” “You certainly remember stopping at my house in Greenwood, don’t you?’ asked Mr. Hoyt, with some impatience. “Well, that would be talking about this case, and as to that I will say nothing,” said Burton. Burton’s story since his return to this city is that he l’eft Indianapolis two weeks before the Redmond murder, and never was in Greenwood. Burton’s change of manner Is fexplained by Chief of Detectives Splann on the theory that he did not realize the enormity of the crime which he had committed until he was brought back to this city. “On the way up from Nashville on thfe train he talked over the case freely,” said Mr. Splann. “He compared the newspaper ac counts of the robbery and murder with the facts as he knew them to have bfeen, and talked about his trip to Greenwood and his escape. Suddenly after he reaches here ho shuts up and denies everything. The reason Is clear to me. He had over two years to serve in Nashville, and those two years are almost equivalent to death, for if therfe ever was a hell on earth it is that Nashville prison. Burton did not know that the killing of Redmond could be made murder in the first degree, and thought he could come back here, stand a trial and get off with an indeterminate sentence which good behavior might make as low as three or four years.

This puts a decidedly different color on the case, and he would rather go back to his Southern prison than to thfe gallows. This is my opinion of Burton’s change of heart, but it is just as well this way. He will be convicted surely, and his own con fession will not be needed against him.” DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER. Policeman Barbee Knocks Down Da vid Stewart, Drank. David Stewart was arrested by Patrolman Barbee yesterday on a charge of being drunk. He attempted to fight the officers and was knocked down. When landed at the police station it was found that his shoulder was dislocated and Dr. Thomas, of the Dispensary, was called to set it. The Little Wind. Now praise the Lord both moon and sun, And praise Him all ye nights and days, And golden harvests every one, And all ye hidden waterways. With cattle standing to the kneee Safe from the bitter gadfly's sting} But praise him most, O little breeze That walks abroad at evening. O praise Him all ye orchards now. And all ye gardens deep in green. Ripe apples on the yellowing bough. And golden plum and nectarine. And peaches ruddier than the rose. And pears against the southern wall} But most the little wind that blows, The blessed wind at evenfall. O praise Him, hoary dews again, Dren.hing the meadows 'neath the morn, And praise Him hidden founts of rain. And amber brooks singing a tune, And icy deeps of well-water, And each pellucid stream and spring; But praise Him most, O wind astir, O blessed wind at evening. O praise Him now ye burning days Os golden summer, hot and spent. Planets and stars see that His praise Be biown about the firmament. Yet praise Him best, O little wind That out of heaven will blow and call. Because, because our God is kind And bids us live at evenfall. —Pall Mall Gazette.
