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
“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.

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

companies, $438,422.50; express companies,
$1,913,089; net increase of corporations ana

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

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

the property 7 in her hands, which she did

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

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.
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
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.
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.
“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. But one of the

first things he learns here is that his case
is murder in the first degrfee, and that he
has been indicted on that charge, and that
If convicted he stands ready for the hang
man. 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

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.
