Yesterday afternoon a meeting of the
State Holiness Camp Meeting Association,
was held in the hotel dining room for tho
purpose of electing officers and- changing
the name of the association to that of
"The Indiana State Holiness Association."
The Rev. C. AV. Ruth, who has been a
prominent evangelistic worker for the last
sixteen years and has held revivals in

ment to that effect. The Rev. Thomas Nel
son, the Pentecoater, was present, and ob
jected to the Jl tax without first notifying

cepted the presidency. J. E. McCartney,

ry was raised to &5. and that of the treas

MET WITH THE MAYOR
A COXFEItEXCE CALLED TO DISCUSS
THE FIRE DEPAItTJIEXT,
It I Thought if Improvements Are
Mnde Fire Rates Will Xot
Tha action of the Board of Governors of
the Western Insurance Union relative to
higher insurance rates for this city, was
the cause of a conference yesterday morn
ing between the mayor, the Council and
the Board of Works.
The cause of the increase, as announced.
was inadequate tire protection to mercan
tile properties in the business district. It
was also suggested that, should the needed
improvements be made, there would be no
The appropriation asked for the improve
ment of the fire department was not favor
ably acted upon by the Council when pre
sented to It, and a resolution by Council
man Negley, asking for an expert commit
tee to make a report upon the improve
ments needed, was also defeated. The
question of the improvement was the sub
ject at the conference yesterday. It was
held behind closed doors, and all of the
members of the Council were present ex
cept three of the Republicans and four of
the Democrats. Mayor Taggart suggested
that should the Council take hold of the
matter and authorize a bond Issue for the
money required, the work could begin at
ence and be finished before winter, and at
the same time cause the insurance board
to reconsider its action. He contended
there was nothing in the statement of cer
tain Republicans that the proposed im
provement was for political reason?, and
that the report of Inspector Goodloe had
been influenced In any way by him.
The Negley resolution was discussed, and
Mr. Negley said he would again introduce
it at tho next meeting. Negley says the
refusal of the Democrats of the Council to
favorably consider his resolution does not
show good faith vin asking for the improve
ment. The Republicans are, they say, not
opposed to the making of Improvements,
but to the manner In which it is proposed
by the Democrats to provide funds with
which to meet the expense. The Republican
members Insist that the expense should be
paid from the current income, which, under
the present levy of 59 cents could not be
done, and It is for this reason the Demo
crats object to making the appropriation In
that way, necessitating a Higher tax levy.
The matter of a special session of the
Council for the consideration of the ques
tion was discussed, but it was not decided
to call the special session.
Mayor Taggart, after the conference, left
for Chicago, for the purpose, it is thought,
of seeing the Board of Governors of the
Insurance Union and securing from It a
promise to leave the rates here undisturbed
In cased the improvements are Installed
It was thought by some yesterday that
the members of the Council will get to
gether in the matter and order an tssuo
of bonds to cover the cost of the Improve
ments. A Preacher's Protest.
The .-Rev. Joseph Vinson, pastor of the
Church of God, at Hamburg street and Le
Grande avenue. In a communication to tho
Board of Works, complains of the alleged
discrimination by the board against the
small storekeepers in the suburbs by al
lowing the interurban cars the use of the
city streets. He says the farmers will dis
continue patronizing the "corner grocery"
and continue riding until they can get off
in front of the large department stores.

The Epworth League of the Roberts Park

Through the efforts of the Epworth
League twenty-six of the poor and needy
children, living in tenements, have been

twenty-eight near Westfield. Arrangements
have been made with farmers to care for
them free of expense, providing substantial
food and amusements. Seventy-live more

who are found at the Fresh AJr Mission
at Fairview Park. Members of the league
have become quite enthusiastic over the
work of providing the sick and needy chil
dren with country outings and are working

HORSES TURNED LOOSE
OXE IIUXDHED ANIMALS DniVEN IX
TO THE STREETS.
Fire In Wood'a Livery Stable Canted
Considerable Excitement The
Loss Xot Heavy
A fire which broke out In Wood s livery
stable on the east side of Monument place
at 9:40 yesterday morning caused more ex
citement than any fire for a long time. The
fire started In the urper part of the stable,
which Is a large structure, and spread
rapidly. In the stable were about seventy
five horses and a large number of car
riages. When the alarm was sounded the
hGstler gave orders for all horses to be cut
lcose and driven into the street. A moment
later horses wero running wild in the
fr treet and several serious accidents were
narrowly averted. Newsboys got after the
horses and socn had' most of the animals
gathered up. Before being captured many
of the animals, in their excitement, tried
hard to return to the burning building, but
were prevented by men stationed at the
doorways with whips.
The large number of carriages were
quickly hauled out. some of them slightly
scorched, and with a loss of but two ve
hicles. Two alarms were turned in from different
boxes and they were followed by a second
alarm, which brought a large quantity of
fire apparatus to the scene. Company No.
1 was among the first to get at work. A
ladder was hoisted to a second-story win
dow in the rear and1 Peter Hartnitt and
Captain George mounted to throw a stream
through the window.. While waiting for the
water to bo turned into their line, tho
llames broke from the window and both
were burned. Hartnltfs injuries were the
most severe. He dropped the hose and bung
to the ladder until taken off by Detective
Asch, who escorted him to a drug store,
where remedies were applied, after which
ko was taken to his home.
The work Of the firemen was much de
layed for a time on account of the largo
crowd which gathered in th alley and on
cccount of failure of tho police to set out
The building is. fronting on the Circle, a
one-story structure, but back of that Is a
three-story building, to the second floor of
which the flames were confined. The fire
was quickly under control and within an
hour was extinguished. Workmen were at
once secured and the task of cleaning up
the place begun so that by noon business
had been resumed. The loss was estimated
at about $1.000. There was insurance of
about 110,000 on the build!ngs and contents.
So rapidly and with such fierceness did tho
fire burn for a few moments that It was
thought it would spread to the When block
In the rear and lines were put out for its
protection. It was discovered when an at
tempt was made to close the iron protecting
shutters on the When block that telephone
cables were to strung as to prevent the
closing of the shutters, and this added to

him, bruising his eyes and Hps. Enoch then

GETTING PLANS IN HAND
A BIG CIVIC AXD MILITARY PARADE
TO BE A FEATURE
It Will Be in Charge of Gen. Jamea R.
Carnahan All Kinds of Amuse
ments for the Carnival
The Fall Festivities Society has arranged
for a parade that will include every civic
and military organization that can appear
in uniform. Major General James R. Car
nahan will have charge of the parade,
which will be turned over to him at the
West Washington-street White river
bridge. There he will be given command
of the floats which are in course of con
struction at the "den" at West Washing
ton street and the Belt Railroad.
The character of the floats to be seen In
the night paräde will not be made known
until the night of the demonstration. The
night parade will te independent of the
merchants parade and the Industrial pa
rade, both of which will be In the day time.
The list of attractions that will be pre
sented by the concern that is now figuring
with the carnival promoters is an impos
ing one. There will be a "high dive" ex
hibition. Oriental exhibitions on an order
entirely new In tho West, musical pro
grammes never before heard In Indianapo
lis, and minor attractions of various kinds.
The industrial parade, which will be in
charge of George W. Bliss, will be a por
trayal of the business interests of Indian
apolis. Mr. Bliss, while in the East a few
weeks ago, looked Into this feature of the
carnival, and has brought home some novel
"I think we will give Indianapolis people
something that nvlll surprise them," sild
he, "The list of attractions which has
been submitted. to me is the best I have
seen anywhere, and Ind! -olis will have
the benefit of them for the first time In this
country. We want to demonstrate that we
can get up something that is the equal if
rot better than anything In St. Louis, Mil
waukee, New Orleans or Cincinnati."
It has been decided that the guarantee
fund will be collected at once so that the
various committees will know exactly
what funds they will have at their com
mand. The floral parade will be prepared with
extreme care and no person whose vehicle
has not been passed upon by Mrs. II.
McCall Travis will be allowed in the
"I would have nothing to do with the
parade if even as much as a blue ribbon
were to be given as a prize for the best
decorated vehicle," said she, "for the very
next parade that you gave would see only
one vehicle in the parade and that would be
owned by the winner of the first prize this
year. The only way to give a successful
parade and to keep it up annually Is to
allow everybody who has a creditable ex
hibit in the parade and there will then be
no jealously among the society women of
the city. Effect as a whole is what we
want, and the makers of flowers for deco
rative purposes will make a mistake if
they undertake to make every flower per
fect. When a decorated vehicle Is moving
ou cannot look at every flower you see
the effect as a whole and this is what
lends beauty to the vehicle in the moving

' Frank C. Rostock Here.
The promoters of the big October carni
val are receiving many offers from amuse
ment managers anxious to bring their en
tertainments to Indianapolis. Frank C.
Bostock, who is known as one of the most
successful street fair and Mardi Gras man
agers in the United States, dropped into
the city yesterday, and last night had an
informal talk with Max Hyman, press
agent of the Fall Festivities Society, dur
ing which he submitted to the society a
proposition to bring to Indianapolis his
combined attractions, including his "Streets
01 Cairo," "Theater of Nations," "German
Village," "Venetian Gondolas" and "Life
in the Flowery Land." Many of these
shows have never been seen west of the
seashore resorts, and it is thought they
will prove to be attractive novelties.
Stabbed In the Side.
Frank Ellis, the watchman at the Indian
apolis hominy mills, on Madison avenue,
was stabbed in the side last night by Rich
ard Bryant, of 1C23 Chestnut street. The
wouKd Is not dangerous. Ellis was taken to
the office of Dr. Bernauer, where the cut
was dressed. Bryant made hla escape, and
could not be found by the police. Ellis said
Bryant was drunk when he came to work,
&nd after a few words he pulled out a knife
and stabbed him.
Harry Thrush Arrested.
Harry Thrush, a night watchman, was
arrested yesterday morning by the bicycle
police and charged with drunkenness and
drawing a deadly weapon, a revolver. He
stopped early at Mata's saloon, at Indiana
avenue and New York street, and fell
asleep. He became angry when awakened
and drew his revolver, which .was taken
from him by the bartender after knocking

Efforts of the Prefect of Police to Re

Copyright, 1300, by the Associated Tress.
PARIS, Aug. 11. The recent announce
ment of decorations conferred gave the re
actionary press an opportunity to recall
the proceedings of the High Court which
exiled MM. Deroulede and Guerln. In the
list of those ornamented are found the
names of nearly all who were prominently
connected with the prosecution before tho
court, thus permitting the suggestion that
they have finally received their salaries.
The courts this week have also had a
souvenir of the High Court In the pro
ceedings against Dr. Dc Villiers, charged
with insulting Dr. Toss! after sentence had
been passed upon Deroulede. Dr. Tossl
was a member of the court. The men met at
a club and Dr. De Villlers said: "I am
borry to see you, sinco you tiared to con
demn Deroulede, whom a jury had acquit
ted." The result was a duel, in which Dr.
Possl was wounded. Although a reconcil
iation was effected, the government decided
upon a prosecution on the ground of pro
tection of the court's verdict, and Dr. Do
Villiers was fined 3,000 francs.
M. Lcplne, the Tarls prefect of police,
has taken sternly in hand two of the
most annoying evils to which strangers in
Taria are bound to sumbit. Trickery and
cvercharging on the part of cab drivers and
the pestering of promenaders on the boule
vards by persons bent on the sale of trans
parent cards,' salacious literature and other
articles, the sale of which would mean im
mediate imprisonment in any city in the
United States. So vigorously has the lat
ter class been assalu-d by the police that
many innocent newsboys have been ar
rested, but the result of M. lupine's efforts
has been very notlcable on the boulevards
the last two nights. For the regulation of
the cab service and the doing away with
the maddening faults which cause manv an
American to use unprintable words, he has
issued a long series of rules compelling
cabmen to notify passengers of the exact
amount of their fare before starting, pro
hibiting the favorite pastime of the drivers
that of smoking while- on duty compell
ing them to accept -passengers and in many
other ways restricting "his highness," the
monarch of transportation facilities." It
Is undoubtedly due to the arbitrary action
of the cabmen during the exiosition that
the strike is receiving no sympathy and
though they have decided to continue the
strike, the bottom of it has dropped out
and transportation is scarcely impeded.
Tha police also are busily watching the
anarchistic groups. Since the attempt was
made to kill the Shah of Persia an Investi
gation has been carried on. which has re
sulted in the discovery of several meeting
places of the Reds. It is now certain that
the desecration of the Daubervllle Cathedral
was the work of Anarchists, and it is not
sure that Saison was not a participant in
the outrage. Saison continues his reticence,
every effort to induce him to break his
silence being unavailing. Vallette, who was
arrested as an accomplice of Saison', has
been released for want of proof of com
The annual report on the subject of
hydrophobia, which has just been presented
to the Council of Public Hygiene by Prof.
Poust, shows, by statistics, that the num
ber of mad dogs In Paris and the depart
ment of the Seine is steadily Increasing.
The Pasteur, Institute treated 2j4 persons
who had been bitten by rabid animals be
tween the first of the year and June S.
The report cites the results of the cases
treated by Inoculation and by other means.
Among those mentioned is that of a young
apprentice, who, in repulsing a mad dog.
got ome saliva on his hand. This he raised
to his eye. Into which some dust had
blown, and the virus was thus communi
cated to the blood, resulting in the death of
the young man a fortnight later.

VANGUARD IS HERE.
R. A. YVldemaiin, of Xevr York First of
R. A. Widemfcnn, of New York. Is the
first of the members of the new National
party to arrive for the convention, which
Is to take place In the. Commercial Club
assembly room this week. TTjo National
party Is the outgrowth of the conference
held here some time ago by t; handful of
Eastern men who called themselves 'inde
pendents" or men who could neither sup
port McKinley nor Bryan.
The convention will be organized cn
Tuesday, but the ticket. If one Is nomi
nated, will not be selected until Wednes
day. Mr. Wldemann says he is not pre
pared to say what names will b brought
IWore the convention. He thinks there will
be about 200 men here representing his
own party, but they expect that some of
the Anti-imperialists, who will begin their
convention on Wednesday, will co-operate
with the Nationals.
The Anti-lmierlalists. Mr. Wldemann
rays, have three propositions under consid
eration. One is to nominate an Independ
ent ticket; another is for each individual
to go out and as best he can work for
the defeat of McKinley, and the third is to
openly indorse Bryan's candidacy. Mr.
Wldemann says he thinks Bryan's notifica
tion speech will have a tendency to in
fluence many of the Antl-lmperialUts who
were, against him. to look upon him witti
more favor. Mr. Wldemann thinks the
speech will be a mo.del of fine reasoning to
the unthinking man, but will not bear a

It is no exaggeration to Ray that Scotia
has lost her supremary as the home of golf.
To-day there are more golf clubs in tha
United States than in Scotland, England
and Ireland, and there are more players
paying tribute to the ancient and honorabla
game here than in the British Isles. A
considerable number it may be over a halt
of the golf balls made in the old country,
the home of golf for so many years, are sold
in the United States. The best profession
als of Scotia's links are either in the em
ployment of clubs here, or are about to
affiliate with the large contingent of club
makers and teachers Jn the United State.
Money is being spent in the United States
every year by the millions for the support
of the game that cannot be called
"crare." No institution that affords a live
