Mrs. Kate Martineck was found guilty
cf cruelty to Hazel Orme by the Criminal
Court Jury yesterday morning and fined
$.10 and costs and sentenced to one day in
the county Jail. The tlofense was given
until Monday to file a motion for a new
trial. The attorneys will likely object to
the verdict on the ground that the appeal
docket in th Police Court was not signed
by Judge Stubbs and therefore there was
i.o judgment and consequently no appeal.
Judge Alford instructed Prosecutor ltuck

Judge Alford said he would remand the
cases back to the Police Court to have the
judgments perfected before he would recog

court for alleged negligence.

RECENT LEGAL OPINIONS.
Gas Companies Rights of Consumers.
An interesting case to consumers of gas
was decided recently at Mount Vernon. N.
1. 1 ne gas company anempieu in coueci
for gas which was consumed by a former
tenant of the premises; the occupant of the
house refused payment, wherf upon he was
threatened with a closure of the connec
tions. He sllll declined to pay what he
prnprly regarded as an unjust demand,
and the company fulfilled its threat and
took out the meter. The case went into
court, the tenant In the meantime resorting
to the u?" of kerosene lamps. Damages
were sought for the Inconvenience of such a
lighting system, and the 5iiit. after passing
from court to court, finally resulted in a
verdict of $3 a day for two years, eighteen
weeks and four days, amounting to $i.3o"
The experience was rather costly for the
gas. company, but the verdict seems to be
eminently Just and worth all it cost as de
termining the rights of consumers and
manufacturers of gas, respectively.' Al

Husband and Wife Abandonment.
Where a husband and wife agreed to live
apart for a number of years and there was
no showing that the wife ever revokeel her
agreement or objected to the separation,
such separation did not constitute an aban
donment within the meaning of a law pro
viding that, where a husband willingly
abandons his wife for three years next pre
ceding her death he shall have no interest
in her estate. The fact that the husband
lived in adultery for many years did not, as
a matter of law, show an abandonment, but
wa3 merely evidence tending to prove his

Arrest Without Warrant Misdemeanor
The question of the right of an officer to
make an arrest without a warrant Is one
that is constantly coming up for the courts
to pass upon. In a late case decided by the
Supreme Court of New York it is held that
a police officer cannot arrest for a misde
meanor without a warrant, unless it was
committed in his presence. Nor can he
make an arrest for a misdemeanor without
a warrant on his own suspicion or hearsay.
But, where a felony has been committed,
a police officer may arrest without a war
rant any person he has reasonable grounds
to believe committed it. 71 New York Sup
plement (Judge Gaynor), 7!-4.J

LAST SESSION OF THE BODY BEFORE

Llvelj Dehnte A Former Teacher
Vlftits the Institution.
The last session of the Shortrldge High
School Senate before spring1 vacation was
held yesterday afternoon and was a very
interesting one, being exceedingly lively
and characterized by a good -deal of "rough
house." Senator. Pritchard's (Earl Pritch
ard) bill to not allow a State which dis
franchises its voters representation in Con
gress was read for the second time and
the discussion opened by Its author, who
made a good speech in behalf of his bill.
The measure also found a champion in the
person- of Senator Butler (Albert Burns.)
He delivered a short address in favor of
the bill. The senator from Kentucky
(Charles Christian) next gained the floor
and in his usual convincing manner spoke
for the passage of the measure. He was
followed by a Southern senator (Frank
Doudican), who delivered a strong argu
ment against the bill. The latter based his
argument on the theory that the negro Is
not capable of exercising the right of suf
frage. At the conclusion of the Georgia man's
speech the fair Senator McDonald (Laura
Potter) took the floor in favor of the bill.
It Is unusual for the girl members of the
body to take a very active part in the
proceedings, and the speech of Senator
McDonald was well received by the gallery.
Things were not lively enough for certain
members of the body, anel word was passed
through the Senate that "something had
better be started." Hence a senator soon
arose and informed the body that a tele
gram had just been received from the Pres
ident and should be read at once. The mes
sage proved to be a wish from the chief
executive that the Senate spend a happy
Easter. After a good deal of "hot air" the

Day nt Shortrldtce.
Mr. A. I. Doty, who was at one time a
member of the Shortridge High School
faculty, and one of the most popular teach
ers in the school, paid a visit to Shortridge
yesterday. He is now instructor of Latin
In the De Witt Clinton High School, New
York city, and this is his first visit to In
dianapolis since he removed to his present
residence. Mr. Doty will return home to
day. Mr. Doty left the Shortridge High School
in and there have been many changes
since that time. "I see many new faces,"
said he, "but find that same excellent spirit
which characterized the school when I was
here, and which has always been a part of
the Shortridge school." Mr. Doty talked
very interestingly of the high schools in
New York city. There are three schools of
the kind, one for boys, one for girls, and
one for both. A student entering high
school is allowed to choose the one he de
sires to attend. The pupils in the New
York schools are of an entirely different
class than those in our schools. The
scholars In the former city are largely from
the foreign element and it is very hard to
instruct them in such subjects as Latin, be
cause they cannot speak English very well.
Mr. Doty remained at the school all morn

MONEY FOR HEALTH BOARD
COUNCIL APPROPRIATES $2,000 FOR
An Ordinance Appropriating $5,000
for Smallpox Emergency Fand
Introeluceel City Affairs.
Seventeen councilmen found their way to
the special meeting called last night and
voted unanimously to provide the Board of
Health with an additional $2.0. It had
been rumored that the Democratic mem
bers would oppose the passage of the ordi
nance, but when the roll was called they
voted with the Republicans. The finance
committee, which met Just before Council
convened, reported in favor of the appro
priation being made.
An ordinance appropriating $3,000 to cre
ate a smallpox emergency fund for the
Board of Health was introduced last night
and will come up for passage at the regu
lar meeting Monday night. The ordinance
was accompanied by a communication from
Controller Breunig which set out the dim
cult position in which the Health Board Is
placed in regard to money for ejuarantlne
expenses. The Republican members of
Council have expresseel themselves as in
favor of the ordinance; the Democratic
members refuse to say how they will vote.

nance appropriating the sum of $120 for the
payment of the- interest on the permanent

PARK HOARD'S PLANS.
3Iuslc in the Purks nnd Possibly a
Ilnthing Place nt Riverside.
People will have a chance to "listen to
the band" in the parks this summer. Com
missioner Collin came forward at the meet
ing of the Park Board yesterday with a
plan that will likely be adopted by the
board. He said he thought it would be a
good thing If visitors could listen to band
music in at least two parks every Sunday
during the hot months. The bands could
play at Brookslde and Riverside parks one
Sunday and at Garfield and Military parks
the next Sunday; or the plan could be ar
ranged in any form of alternation the
board thought best. Since mus'c forms no
tmall part of the attractiveness of the
parks when the thermometer is up in the
'nineties, the park ccmmlssioners are in
favor of providing as many bands as the
finances will permit.
Commissioner King suggested that the
public be given an opportunity to bathe at
Riverside Park. and that a building of some
sort bo put up em the river bank at a suit
able place. The river at Eighteenth street
has a smooth, sandy bottom, the commis
sioner said, and would be the most availa
ble spot. The building could be used as a
dressing room, and with a man and a
woman in charge, towels could be furnished
the public at a very small charge.
The board decided to push the completion
of the shelter house at Garfield Park. Ths
masonry and stone work have been com
pleted and the contract for the iron work
was awarded yesterday to J. D. Hoss for

If there, is no legal obstacle in the way

five houses' on South Meridiaflf street from
2212 to 221S, where a dozen cases of small
pox were discovered by the health officers
the other day, are burned to the ground.
City Attorney Joss was requested yester
day by- Dr. Buehler. secretary of the board,
to render an opinion as to "whether the clty
can legally order the destruction of private
property for the reasons named and as to
payment by the city to the owners of the

ramshackle affairs, breeding places for

Clerk Wood, of the Board of Safety, takes
exception to a statement that the trustees

W. A. WYCKOFFS LECTURE

Scientifically, with Slight
Walter A. Wyckoff, a professor in Prince
ton University, was a lecturer of special
and personal Interest at the Tropylaeum
last night. He came In the course of the
lectures on social science given under the
management of the University of Chicago.
He is known to the general public through
his magazine articles describing his experi
ences as an unskilled laborer in various
parts of the country. He said last night
that when he returned to his university after
his wanderings and experiments his friends
dubbed him "Weary." But it was not his
purpose to again narrate his submersion in
the army of the intermittently employed,
and he did not appear as a "horrible exam
ple." Rather he was the typical scientist,
with an easy manner and a careful accent
that fitted evening dress, and was far from
the jumper and overalls.
Mr. Wyckoff s subject was "The Social
Effects of Charity," and he began with the
changing definitions of the word "charity."
In the feudal days, when the baron and
the various classes of dependents formed a
close corporation, there was slight pauper
ism, because the needy went directly to
their master for relief. When the era of
economic freedom began and developed into
the factory system pauperism increased
proportionately. The press of the pauper
condition resulted In the state adopting
measures to support the paupers when be
fore It had punished them as criminals.
Mr. Wyckoff recommended that the the
ories of the Malthusian, the Socialist, the
Prohbitlonlst and other reformers of dif
ferent schools be not accepted individually.
Pauperism, he said, came from many, not
one source. The Malthusian idea that hu
man propagation was too rapid for food
production was as inadequate as the Social
ist's theory that collective ownership of
property and utilities would solve the prob
lem. He pointed out that the situation was
slowly being relieved by isolation of differ
ent kinds of paupers. Children were being
raised in industrial schools and the aged,
the insane and the epileptic were being sor
regated. The world had profited, he said,
by the preservation of its paupers, for so it
had learned foresight and had bt-en in
structed by examination of the Incapable
in the science of prevention. The subdivi
sions of this science medicine, surgery,
and, latterly, bacteriology thus arose. The
theory of some biologists, Herbert Spencer
conspicuously, that cutting off the defective
persons by exposing them to the struggle
and abetting the "survival of the fittest,"
was thus refuted.

T1IK SLM)AY-SCllOOL LESSÖX.
First Quarter March O, 1902 Easter
Lesson John xx, 618.
Across the dark and tragic scene of the cru
cifixion some bars of light fall, silver against
an Inky background. Friendship begs the body
almost before breath is out of it. Love sucr
intends the taking down from the cross. "lie
makes His grave with the rich in His death," as
the prophet paid He would. A new and unused
tomb in a garden receives the body. Fair lint-n
and aromatic unguents swathe the marred form.
The gxave is visited and revitited. There is not
wanting the Oriental wailing aloud. There s
wealth and royalty of love and friendship.
At the first Intimation of resurrection there is
investigation personal, quick, associated, and
thorough. Th naturalness and truth of the
narrative is evident in numerous Incidental
touches such, for example, as the traits of Peter
and John, respectively, as they approach the
sepulcher. John, in his reverence, loses the ad
vantage of his fieetness. While Peter, heavier,
gains by lack of reverence, impetuosity hurrying
him into the very midst of the tomb.
Centuries before the Crusader, woman Is the
first and truest guardian of the holy sepulcher.
The tryst of the Marys at the grave of Jesus is
incidental evidence of universal womanly fidelity.
Well may Miss liarrett say:
"Not the with trait'rous kiss her Savior fctung.
Not she denied Him with unholy tongue.
She, whll apostle shrank, could danger brave
La&t at His cross, and first at Ills grave."
The dialogue between Jesus and Mary, in ipite
of brevity, is meaningful in the extreme. Mary
stands at the open tomb, weeping. Stooping
down, she looks in. The angels on guard there
say, "Woman, why weepest thou?" In the
blindness of grief she does not recognize that
they are angels, and answers, "Iiecause they
have taken away my Lord, and I know not where
they have laid Him." Hearing a footstep, or
I-erhaps only conscious of another presence, sne
turns. The stranger repeats the question cf the
angels. Surios.Ir.g he is the keeper of the gar
den, the cries, "Sir, if thou hast borne Him
hence, ttll me where thou hast laid Him. and
I will take Him away." The words gush out
like a pent-up torrent of grief. The stranger
only utters her name "Mary!" Like a bap
tism of love that dear voice falls or. her soul.
Recognition is complete. Looking up with ador
ing love, she cries u her native Aramaic, "Rab
boni!" (My Master!) Most remarkable recog
nition of history! Time: First Easter. Place:
Garden adjoining place of crucifixion. Person:
The risen Savior.
New revelations always come while in the way
of loving service. Loyal, unforgettlng affection,
while on its way to do its last rite, mtd the
mot glorious discovery of the ages the empty
tomb of the first Easter morning. Obedience,
running with fear and great Joy, to brine th
disciples word, was privileged to hear Jesus'
"All hall!" and to clasp His feet. It is so yet.
"Do and know."
The Insufficient reaton for excessive sorrow at
death of friends is revealed in the question,
"Why weepest thou?" Whittler puts it well:
"Alas for him who never sees
The stars shine through his cypress tre!
Who hopeless lays his dead away,
Nor looks tJ see the breaking day
Aerosi. the mournful marbles play
Who hath n"t learned, n hours of faith.
The truth to sense and fWn unknown.
That life Is ever Lord of dath.
An! love can never lose her own!"
