It la Alleged that the FreTnlence of the "Mb Spirit" Reunited in Quick Conviction. The appeal In the case of "Duck" Wheeler from a juI?rmnt convicting him of the murder of his son-in-law, Oias R-irns, at Bonneville, last September, and sentencing him to be handed on Feb. S was filed In the? Supreme Court yesterday. A petition was aIo riled asklne: a stay of execution until the appeal can be decided. The killing was done at Ilurns'.s house. Wh eler striking Burns on the head with an ax. The chief ground of appeal is that the mob spirit was ftrt rlf In W.-irrirk rmintv thrit Whpplcr was forced into trial to escape death by lynch law, and that the jury was Intimi dated into iindiriK him guilty. It Is as serted that threats were freely made In case of acquittal to hang Wheeler and all the Jury on the same limb on which a negro had been hanged the previous December. The appellant also filed a petition for a writ of coram nobis, to inquire into the state of public excitement in HoonevUle at the time of he murder. The application is sup ported by all'.davits of the sheriff and other publio official?, showing that there wa3 such fear of mob violence that the court would not let Wheeler be taken back to jail during the noon recess, when his ap plication lor a continuance was under con sideration. The Supreme Court affirmed the judg ment convicting Justin Iemon of receiving stolen goods. Lemon kept a second-hand store at Alexandria, and after a burglary at the When stort. at Pendleton, a lot of clothing was found at his place bearing the When brand. The Appellate Court affirmed a judgment c.f the Hendricks Circuit Court, but gave that tribunal permission to set aside th judgment on motion for a new trial. It was in one of the casts by th Indianapolis i cbool commissioners against Samuel Hegne, f romer school treasurer in West .Indianapolis, chared with defalcations. LEGAL SPARRING. Attorneys for H. C I)avii Appear in the Federal Court. There promises to be more or less prelim inary sparring in the case against Richard C. Davis, charged with embezzling funds from the People's National Hank of Wash ington. Yesterday the attorneys for Davis appeared before Jui0rf Uaker and asked leave to withdraw their plea of "nut guil ty," so that they might tile lemurrers to the Indictment. District Attorney Kealing objected to the plea, being withdrawn at this late. day. 8. N. Chambers, one of Da vis's attorneys, said there had been a change In the Indictment by shifting the order of counts since It was in his hands. The district attorney announced that the clerk of the court had had charge of the Indictment except when Mr. Chambers had it. Judge Raker instructed both sides to file briefs. One of the claims of Davis's attor neys is that tht.' indictment charges Davis with two offenses when it says he "ab stracted and "embezzled" funds of the bank. It is also contended that a number of the counts do not state facts sufficient to charge him with an offense. CASHED A FORGED CHECK. Drugglit K. 31. Crawford Complains to the Police. K. M. Crawford, a druggist at 540 North "Pennsylvania streft, complained to the po lice yesterday that M. P. Applewhite, a traveling man. who lived at the Lorraine Hotel, had passel a forged check on him. Thi cluck was for $11. .V, and drawn on the American National Dunk. The name f Henry 'Jreening. of Cumberland, was signed to the check. It was deposited in Fletcher's Dank Monday and returne!

SENSATION IN COUNCIL mayor, nno KWAir nit nnrrsKii ritiv ili:;i: of iiki.nc; iii:ard. Connrllmnn GantiiTf J. T. Meyer the Only 31emler that Voted Aeniimt the Proposition. HIS ACTION CAUSED SURPRISE TIIH MAYOR DESIRED TO TALK AIIOIT CONTAGION HOSPITAL. o 'Amount of Arsnmrnt Wn Able to ShnLe Meyer Determination Tito Ordinances. Very Infrequently indeed does the mayor of Indianapolis request from Council the courtesy of being heard on a given propo sition, the theory of entire separation of the executive and legislative branches of the city government being one of the causes, perhaps; and still less frequently is such courtesy refused, since it is asked usu ally only in emergencies. Because of the stubborn negative of one man, however. Mayor Hookwalter was refused a hearing last night on the smallpox situation. Gus tav J. T. Meyer absolutely declined to give Mr. Bookwalter the privilege of say ing a few words, and neither the requests of the surprised Republicans nor the angry entreaties of the no less astounded Demo crats were able to move him from his stand. Since unanimous consent of the members of Council is necessary to allow anyone to address the body, the mayor of the city was forced to swallow his embar rassment and accept the situation. The sensation created by Mr. Meyer arose out of the introduction of two appropria tion ordinances providing sums for the alleviation of the danger of a smallpox epidemic. A special meeting had been called by the mayor after reisonal inter views with most of the councllmen and he had received assurances that the or dinances mlRht be passed. He had called Democrats and Republicans into his office in the morning, and with a few exceptions had found them amenable to reason. He assured the Democrats that they had noth ing to fear from an ordinance establish ing a temporary contagion hospital on the City Hospital grounds, since the pesthouse was to be only temporary; and that he him self was against the Idea of a permanent smallpox pavilion within the city limits. Mr. Morlarity and his followers gave the mayor to understand that they were will ing to reconsider their previous votes. The ordinances introduced appropriate $2,500 for the building- of the temporary structure on the hospital grounds and JJ.OoO to meet the expenses of the Health Board for quar antines and other details. MAYOR AT COUNCIL. So interested was Mr. Bookwalter In the success of the measures that he appeared at the Council meeting last night and had a number of heart-to-heart talks with the members. With Fred Eppert and Ed Sour bier his missionary work was a failure, both Republicans refusing to support the measures, alleging promises to their con stituents before election. With the Demo crats he was more successful, even the hitherto unapproachable Moriarity lending a complaisant ear. The ordinances, with communications from the city controller, were introduced in proper form and re ferred to the committee on finance and then Councilman Harry Negley precipi tateil a totally unexpected furore. "I think," said he, "that since the mayor Is here there would be nothing out of place for him to explain to the Council as a whole the significance of the ordinances and Just what the position of the adminis tration is on the temporary pesthouse question. I move you therefore, that he Is given permission by Council to speak." "I second that motion," said Councilman Wynne; "I think the mayo should be given an opportunity to talk on the matter." From the Democratic side of the house Councilman Wahl noddel a vigorous ac quiescence; Councilman Morarity unbent enough from his cyclopean dignity to grumble approval; Councilman Wolsiffer smiled consent; Councilman Shea, he of few words, jerked his head in agreement. "All in favor of that motion." said Vice President Rhodes, in the formal monotone of the usual question, "will signify their consent in the ordinary manner." and the burst of ayes apparently included all the municipal fathers. More to accord with the rides than to cater to the demands or the situation, the chair continued with, "All those opposed." in an uninterested manner, as if expecting no denial. There was a pause for a few seconds and then Council man Mover jerked out, "I vote no!" The mayor had already risen in his seat with a smile and with half-formed words on his lips. The majority of the members had settled down in their seats prepared to listen, and had taken a firmer teeth grip of the cigars which no rules of the Council can abolish. Mr. Meyer's curt syllables brought every man straight up in his chair, with astonishment written strong on his face. "I say." shouted Tom Wynne, "that's a shame. "Why on earth do you vote that way?" "I will give the gentleman an oppor tunity "f reconsidering his vote," an nounced the chair, with a glance in Mr. Meyer's direction. "I don't want an opportunity. I vote no!" lcclared Meyer, imperturbably. "Oh. lo)k here." said Andrew Wahl, Democrat, "give the mayor a chance, Meyer; there are some things he wants to say that I am sure we have not heard." DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR IIIM. "I don't want to hear the mayor. There's nothing he can say that I care to listen to." announced Meyer, with a gesture of defiance. "We might as well listen, Gus," said Moriarity, with unwonted amiability. " 'No. I tell you. I demand that my vote be recorded as 'no,' " Meyer said. John Crall, who used to be Meyer's busi ness partner, sprang to his feet and with a smile turned to the cause of all the com motion. "Merely as a matter of courtesv," he said. "I think" "There's no politics in this," interrupted Meer. "I insist on voting 'no. " "Very well," said the vice president, re sign, lly. "so record the vote." The mayor sank back in his seat, undecided whether to laugh or be nnnoyel. but finally decidel to take it as a Joke. The councllmen were not so easily mollified and for fifteen minutes the chamler buzzed with condemnation of the councilman's unusual stand. The pecul iar thing about Meyer's opposition is that he is the only one of the Democratic coun cllmen who voted for the appropriation of fj.'.i'o for the building of a temporary con tagion hospital. It seemed a little bit odd that he should refuse to hear the mayor when th other lVmocrats who were against the former ordinance were willing to prallt the courtesy. Meyer's refusal cut sh-rt the meeting and a motion for ad journment, made in a disgusted tone, was quickly carried. The new appropriation measures will be brought up for second reading at the reg ular meeting next Monday night and the mayor believes that there is a chance for them to pass. Eppert and Sourbier, Re publicans, are opposed to them, but Mr. Hookwalter believes that several of the Democrats may be brought around. Ol ECU I SE FOIl PESTHOUSE. Dr. Edenlinrter Rem 11 that a Man Dried Ilennn 1 11 tlie Old One. Dr. Edenharter, superintendent of the Central Hospital for the Insane, made an earnest request of Mayor Hookwalter last night that no ordinance providing f-r the building of a smallpox pesthouse on the old distillery grounds in Wayne township, near Eagle Creek, and about half a mile from the hospital grounds, be considered. The mayor promised the superintendent that he would veto any measure that would contemplate the establishment of a iest house near the Insane hospital grounds. After gaining the mayor's promise, Dr. Edenharter passed to a general conversa tion on smallpox and contagion hospitals. "Do you rememter the old pesthouse that somebody applied a torch to one night? Well I can tell a queer story about that old shack. One day some years ago I got a telegram from a physician on a through train that was to pass through Indianapo lis that he was in charge of four cholera patients, and asked me If I could take care of them for him temporarily. I telegraphed back that I could. The old pesthouse that had been used for the care of smallpox patients from time Immemorial came into my mind and I decided that it would be a good place to house the sufferers from cholera. "Hf fore I took a look at it to decide what brushing up It would need I ordere! two stoves sent from town and also a few other furnishings necessary. Then I went down to It. When I opened the door the first thing that met my astonished eyes was beans. There were beans everywhere. The floor was covered with them. 1 found out afterward that there were sixty bushels and more spread out on the floor drying. I found a man finally who knew something about them and I asked him what In the world beans were doing in a smallpox pest house. 'Dryin out.' he said laconically. Well," I said, 'if you can t find a better place to cure your vegetables than a place likely to be saturated with germs of con tagious diseases, you are in a bad fix. He said 'he guessed it wouldn't do no hurt.' but I told him to take another guess. It is needless to say that those beans never got to market. It is possible that no bad re sults would have followed if they had, but it was a pretty dangerous thing', look at it how you will." Conference AV111 He Held To-Day. Commissioner John McGregor said yester day afternoon that if County Attorney Hugg can be present the meeting of the city and county authorities to discuss an equitable distribution of the cost of a stone bridge over White River at Washington street may be held this afternoon. City Attorney Joss said yesterday he is not ready to announce the arguments he will use to convince Mr. Hugg that he is wrong in the contention that the county has no jurisdiction in building bridges for the city. Safety Hoard To-Morrovr. A meeting of the Board of Tubllc Safety will be held to-morrow morning to con sider the case of Fatrolman Tanzy, against whom charges have been filed. SOLD LIQUOR TO GIRLS THOMAS G. GliE.W HEAVILY TUN 1S1ICD V JUDGE STIUIIS. .Mary Ilenlon and Ethel Scofleld Drank in Iii- Place Jerry Gates and E. G. Serins; Fined. Thomas G. Glenn, a saloon keeper at 501 Agues street, was tried yesterday in Folice Court on a charge of selling liquor to minors. He was fined $100 and costs and sentence! to the workhouse for ninety days. Ho admitted on the stand that ho had sold liquor to Mary Henion, twelve years of age, and to Ethel Scofield, seven teen years old. The girls drank with Glenn and a man who built fires for them In the room usel as a Sun1ay barroom. The girls were sent home in a hack called by Glenn and raid for out of money stolen by the younger girl. The older girl was considerably under the influence of liquor when she left the saloon. Glenn appealed the case. The trials of the girls for theft will come up in the juvenile court to-lay. Efforts are being made to have the license of Glenn revoked. Jerry Gates, in whose saloon at Noble and Michigan streets a fight took place Sunday evening, was fined $25 and costs. He was warned by Judge Stubbs not to again appear in Police Court on a charge of violating the Nicholson law. Emmett G. Sering, a saloon keeper at 709 River avenue, was fined $10 and costs for violating' the Nicholson law. It was in his saloon last Sunday that Guy Newland, who was found late at night dead at the back door of his home, secured much of his liquor on that day. ROBBEDS.R. HOLT'S HOUSE i A SMOOTH CROOK CAPTi nKD AT THE ONEIDA HOTEL. He Had Dyed His Red Hair Tllnrk, hut the AVorkmaiiMhip Wn 1'oor Had Rurfrlarn Tools. A man giving the. name of Stephen Burns was arrested yesterday at the Oneida Hotel by Detectives Splan and Haley. He was slated as a fugitive from Chicago and it was intended to advise the police au thorities that a man for whom they had offereil a reward awaited them her?. Later developments showed that he is the man that entered Sterling R. Holt's residence several days ago and stole many valuable articles. The detectives received a ."dally bulletin" published at Chicago, giving the descrip tion and portrait of a man that escaped from a courtroom there during trial. His name was given as Harry Stead, alias H. Steele. The circular was taken to the various hotels and promises were Fecured to advise the department if a person of that description registered. The clerk at the Oneida said there was a man in the house that answered the description except that his hair wa3 dark Instead of being bright red. The detectives had seen the man about the hotel and after that waited for him. Yesterday morning they learnd he was In his room. They got into the room without awakening him and discov ered his hair had been dyed, but the work was poorly done. On a tabl In the room was a "jimmy" and under his pillow was a large revolver. I'i the pocket of his coat was a cap. He was taken to police headquarters and slated as a fugitive. The "jimmy" found in his room was taken to headquarters. There its peculiar shape was noted. A detective took it to the home of Mr. Holt and discovered that it fittel perfectly the indentations made on a dress-r which had been force! open. The prisoner refused to talk of his work and seemed to be somewhat amuse! at the efforts of the detectives to trap him. In stead of calling for the Chicago authorities to take charge of him, it is probable he will be tried hre on a charge n burglary ami grand larceny. In the event of failure to convict he can be held as a fugitive. Death Due to AleohollMni. The autopsy held yesterday upon the body of W. (J. Powers, who dil Wednes day at the California House, showed that death was caused by alcoholism and not by poison. Powers had made frequent de mands for a revolver, with which he said he wanted to kill himself, and his sudden tbath a few hours later caused friends to think he had poisoned himself. Ticket for Marion Clnh Ilall. Julge Leathers, who is chairman of the committee on entertainment for the Marion Club ball, to be given on F b.

JOHN M. Sl'AXX. Secretary. ENGINEERS MEET AGAIN THEY SAY PLATTING IN INDIANA IS IMPERFECTLY DONE. A Visit Paid In the Afternoon to the Pumping; Station of the Water Company. Yesterday morning when the members of the Indiana Engineers' Society assembled in convention the subject of having the Legislature pass a law compelling uniform surveying and platting of additions to cities and towns of Indiana was brought up. The question, after it was broached, became the medium for much earnest discussion. As the system now stands, it is said, any one may prepare a plat for an .addition. Many times a survey is not even made. This causes vagueness in the records as the plats are submitted to the board of public works or city council of a city for approval. Generally these officials know as little about surveying as the average property-owner does, the engineers said. The engineers desire the Legislature to decree that all plats shall be submitted to a county or city engineer or some per son who Is competent to pass on them. After much discussion the matter was finally referred to the resolution committee, which is to prepare strong resolutions to be brought before the next Legislature. F. A. W. Davis, vice president of the Indianapolis Water Company, gave a short talk during the session yesterday after noon. Mr. Davis's remarks were merely an invitation for the members of the so ciety to visit the two pumping stations of the water company. When the speaker had concluded his remarks a long line of carriages appeared outside the east en trance to the Statehouse. The party first went to the Riverside pumping station and admired the huge engines; later It returned to the pumping house on West Washington street. After inspecting this plant It went over to the wrecked bridge at Washington street. F. A. W. DAVIS PROTESTED. F. A. W. Davis, vice president of the In dianapolis Water Company, created some what of a sensation at the meeting of the Indiana - Engineers' Societj' last night at the statehouse by openly protesting against a paper read by R. L. Sackett, of Rich mond, on "Health Laws and Court Deci sions on Stream Follution." Mr. Sackelt declared that it is openly charged that the farmers near many streams in the State are making more money prosecuting owners of straw bonrd and tin plate works than they do by farming. Mr. Davis declared this statement to be slanderous and said there was no evidence to bear out the statements made by Mr. Sackett. Mr. Davis made a motion to have the paper discussed at the meeting this morning, and some interesting things will probably de velop. Mr. Sackett's paper was one of three on the question of stream pollution. Regard ing the conditions in Indiana, he said, in part: "In Indiana the laws governing the gath ering of vital statistics have been im proved so that the lata Is reliable. A law, supported by the Health Board, was pre sented to the last Legislature and was passed by the Senate. It reached the third reading in the House, but was there held up. This law contained many features of the Massachusetts laws which we adapted to our needs. It gave the State Board of Health power to suppress pollu tion whether by a city or by an industry. Where owners of factories refuse to take remedial measures the Board of Health is powerless. This condition has lel to suits being brought by property owners lam aged. . One factory proprietor spent $12,U00 satisfying farmers' claims. "The State Board of Health ought to be held responsible for the sanitary condi tions of State institutions, und the latter ought to be models In this respect, which they are not now. A stream rendered foul by the sewage from an insane asylum fc0 strong is nauseating to think of and much more to see and smell. There ought to be an engineer member of the State Board of Health. His knowledge of hydraulics and water supply, of methods of filtration and sewage treatment would be valuable In cases brought to trial and in selecting proper means lor avoiding nuisances. The aesthetic sile of itream pollution has not claimed much attention. Longfellow tells us that there are sermons in stones and books in brooks. I fear that some Indiana brooks would by classed as impure litera ture and not fit for perusal." Mr. Sackett also said cities and towns should be prosecuted for polluting streams the same as strawboard works or tin plate mills. STREAM POLLUTION. Severance Burrage, of Lafayette, sx.oke on "Chemical and Bacterial Side of Stream Pollution." He illustrated his talk with stereopticon views of the condition of vater of streams that were polluted from differ ent causes. Several views were shown of disease germs that form in polluted water. A. J. Hammond, of South Bend, spoke on "Present Condition of the Streams of the Counties of the State Regarding Pollu tion." He called attention to many of the streams that have been polluted and raid "the pollution of these particular streams may prove a larger benefit in mold ing and developing a public sentiment which will ultimately cause the Investiga tion and abatement of all sources of pol lution throughout the State. The pollu tion of town and city sewage has Increased quite as rapidly perhaps as the factory waste." Regarding the condition in Marlon county he said: "We have shown that the chief factor In the pollution of White river above Marion county is factory waste. But in Marlon county the chief source of pollution may be said to be the sewage of Indianapolis, and an authority says that 'White river is a noisome sewer for miles and miles on ac count of Indianapolis sewage. At some points within the region of pollution fish are found, but Invariably these fish are dis eased, containing worms and minor organ isms.' " . E. C. De Wolfe, of Mishawaka, spoke on 'Tower of Transmission as a Distinctive Branch of Mechanical Engineering." He said various systems are in vogue including hydraulic, pneumatic, electric and me chanical, each possessing individual fea tures which give It superiority over the others under it. The use of hydraulic and pneumatic systems Is Increasing he said, while electricity is working wonders in its widening application to the valuable serv ice of bringing to available industrial mar kets large portions cf the heretofore wasted energy of commercially inaccessible power sources. E. W. Goldsborough. of Lafayette, who will have charge of the St. Louis world's fair lighting, talked on electric street light ing, illustrated with stereopticon views. He yhowed the alvantages of the' Inclosed arc street lamps over th open lights. Regard ing the direct and alternating currents of inclosed arc lamps he said their respective alvantages were about equal. The election of officers as reported by the nominating committee at the morning session resulted In the present officers be ing re-elected and J. S. Humphreys, of Alexandria, added to the executive board. STATE CHARITIES BOARD. Various Matter Considered at the Quarterly Merting. The quarterly meeting of the State Board of Charities wrs held yesterday at the Statehouse. During the last three months the board has visited sixty institutions in the State. A report of the State agent slowed that in the last quarter forty-three dependent children had been placed in homes. This makes a total of C"5 now In homes. The report on the compulsory edu cation law was not as good as last year, but was satisfactory. There was improve ment shown under the new poor relief laws and a further reduction in the num ber of lnmat s of poor asylums. The board this year is extending its reports to jails and th Mat Ion county workhouse. So far as the county institutions are eoncernetj trure Is Improvement shown In all. Th" board declared that the Pike county poor asylum Is in bad shape. The County Com missioners of that county have failed to comply with the law regarding the ap- H)intment of a. superintendent and unless action is taken the state board may use stringent measures to compel them to com- ply with the law. Governor Durbin pre sided at the meeting of the beard. SARVEN WHEEL COMPANY. A Branch of the Parry Manufacturing Conipnny with $.OtOOO Capital. The Sarven Wheel Company, a branch concern of the D. M. Parry Manufacturing Company, was incorporated yesterday with $50,000 capital to manufacture wheels, shafts, poles, gears, bodies, etc., of wagons and buggies. The directors are Edward R. Parry, David M. Parry, St Clair Parry, Oren R. Clements and Lot D. Gufhn. The Children's Home Association, of Mad ison county, was incorporated. The direct ors are as follows: For one year Wallace N.

TEMPLE'S BIG CONTRIBUTION. It Outdoes All Other Churches in Aid inn; McKinley Fnnd. A contribution of $47.70 was received from the Hebrew Temple in this city yesterday to be applied to the McKinley memorial fund. This is the largest amount reportc! from any one church. The total received up to date from 275 churches is $724.S9, an average of $-.63. Bell Hoy Accused of Petty Thefts. Forest Holland, a bell boy at the Denison Hotel, was arrested last evening by Detec tives Colbert, Hauser and Morgan and charged with burglary. For several days efforts were made to locate the person that had been doing petty stealing from rooms in the hotel. Wednesday night the key to a certain room was missed. It could not be found, and a guest was put into it, he being compelled to bar the door with a chair. Th following morning a chamber maid saw Holland trying to get into the room with a kej'. The key to the room was later found In the elevator. He denied hav ing done any stealing. A pawn ticket was found in his pocket. It showed a revolver had been pawned. A revolver was among the articles missed at the hotel. Gottfried Graf Aealu Acquitted. Gottfried Graf, a grocer at Morris and Wright streets, who was arrested two weeks ago for keeping his place of busi ness open on Sunday, was tried yesterday in Justice Stout's court for the same offense, and acquitted for the second time by a jury. The jury was out two and one half hours. Three lawyers conducted the prosecution and Attorney Rappaport de fended. The Independent Grocers'- Asso ciation, to which Graf belongs, and which is conducting the defense for its members, now has 162 signatures to its agreement. A meeting was held Wednesday night at Sixteenth street and Senate avenue. An other meeting will be held next Wednes day night. James Swan Arrested. James Swan, a negro, who claims to come from riainfield, was arrested last night in an alley opening into St. Joseph street, by Merchant Policeman Rosengarten. When searched a large knife was found and he was charged with carrying con cealed weapons and loitering. He admitted to Detectives Holtz and Wallace that his brother had been sent to the penitentiary about two weeks ago from Plalnfield, and it is thought he was implicated in the theft of wheat tor which his brother wa3 convicted. Warren IHgler Appointed. Governor Durbin yesterday formally an nounced the appointment of "Warren Blg ler, of Wabash, as a member of the board of trustees of the Eastern Hospital for the Insane, at Richmond. He will succeed John W. Macy. It was announced in the Journal several days ago that Mr. Bigler would be appointed. Fifteen Join the Army. Fifteen United States array recruits left the city yesterday for the Columbus, O., arracks. Major Macklin, in charge of the recruiting office, said that most of these recruits were men who have been in the service before. They were enlisted for service in the Philippines.
