APPEAL IN WHEELER CASE
LAST EFFORT WILL Hi: 31 A D K TO
save a MLiii)i:iu:irs lifk.
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objected to the plea, being withdrawn at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.

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.

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.

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.

Conipnny with $.OtOOO Capital.
The Sarven Wheel Company, a branch
concern of the D. M. Parry Manufacturing
