SUIT FOR AN ACCOUNTING.
Slore Than $100,000 of a Madison Es
tate Involved in a Suit.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
MADISON, Ind., June 22. The estate of
the late Mrs. Mary G. Prenatt Is In litiga
tion in the Jefferson Circuit Court In the
suit of Philip Pogue, of this city, against
Colonel Charles Green, of St. Louis, admin
istrator of the estate, for an accounting
and for the appointment of Pogue as ad
ministrator to succeed Green. Pogue sets
forth that Green is retaining nearly $100,000
of the estate and converting It to his own
use, and alleges his Incompetency to serve
as administrator on the grounds of non
residence. Several years ago Daniel E. Doherty,
then manager of the estate, relinquished
his managership to . Green, who, on the
death recently of Mrs. Prenatt, was made
administrator. In 1S94 Green rendered an
accounting, showing that he held $132.000 of
the estate. When qualifying as adminis
trator he offered a bond of only $30,000.
which would indicate an estate of $15.000
under the laws governing such bonds. The
difference between the accounting of 1894
and the bond Just oft'ered precipitates the
present litigation. Tte statement of the
plaintiff alleges Green's Incompetency on
the grounds of nonresldence, sets forth
that the property should schedule at least
$125,000, and demands an accounting. About
$15,000 of the estate Is In this city, and the
balance is in the hands of Green, in St.
The court sustained the motion for an
accounting. The parties to the action are
sons-ln-law of the decedent.

GREAT CO-OPERATIVE SCHEME.
Window-Glass Trust Said to Be Plan
ning for n Coup.
Sreclal to the Indianapolis Journal.
MARION, Ind., June 22. Rumors are
afloat in glass circles that the American
Window-glass Company, the trust, is pre
paring to adopt a plan which will revolu
tionize the window glass trade, and which.
If effectual, will be a death blow to the In
dependent window glass factories through
out the country. It is said that the Ameri
can Company contemplates transforming
itself Into a co-operative concern with a
capital stock: of $17.000,000. The proposition
of the American Is to make each of Its
skilled workmen a member of the company
by presenting him with a block of stock.
No charge will be made for euch stock, the
workmen merely being asked to take an In
tel est in the business and help themselves
by making a better quality of glass than
ever before turned out. The workmen will
draw dividends on their stock In addition
to their pay.
Glass men say this Is the biggest proposi
tion ever made to its employes by any
company, and that it cannot but become
1 effectual, and will Inevitably put the in
dependents out of bu?lne?s. The plan, out
lined contemplates the presentation of $X)
in stock to each of the 4.C) workers in the
trust employ, a total of $2.0.000. to be
added to the present capital of $l5.ooo.0ofl.
Besides piving the trust control of the
window glass situation, this plan un
doubtedly would result In securing to the
company all the best workers in the trade,
resulting in a higher class of output and
strengthening the price situation to the
extent that the additional dividends would
scarceb be felt by the regular stock
holders, if, indeed, it did not result in a
still higher dividend rate.
The workmen here take kindly to the
Idea. They say that there Is r.o reason
why dividends should not be made equal or
superior to the high returns of past yars.
when 123 to ,150 per cent, have been paid,
and they are hopeful of being able to
pocket several hundred dollars more, an
nually, than their wages amount to.
ANDERSON. Ind.. June 22. The report
current here -that the window-glass trust
will increa?e its capital stock and divide
that increase among its workers Is viewed
with apprehension by the independents,
who admit it would mean that the end of
the independent factory was at hand. The
attitude of President Burns Is decidedly
more favorable toward the American Window-glass
Company than it has been here
tofore, and this change In policy is being
freely commented on In the ranks of tho
workmen, who are well pleased with the
prospect of having their conditon bettered.
Glass Flatteners May Strike.
PITTSBURG, June 22. The prospect of
starting the window-glass factories of the
country, on next fire at. the compromise
scale, signed by the blowers and gather
ers, last week, was materially lessened
by the action of the flatteners to-day. After
a six-hour conference with the manufac
turers they refused to accept the 1 per
cent, reduction asked by the trust, and
left the meeting vowing they would close
all the factories unless their demand of a
5 per cent, advance on the present scale

on the turnpike, are carried away, two
bridges, one a new Iron one, over Tretty
