Ten ( ents of the Mnet-( ent Levy

-VaiRniy Still Infilled.
At its meeting this morning the Board of
Park Commissioners will discuss legisla
tion. The board has twice asked for legis
lative relief and will try again. The board
bas faith that the third trial will bring
success. The board has placed the engi
neering of its amendment In the hands of
Representative J. R. Morgan.
The amendment asked for will be a pro
vision to segregate a portion of the tax
levy annually for park purposes. Under the
charter, which fixes 90 cents as the tax
limit for all purposes, there is no fixed
portion of that amount designated for
parks. The Park Board therefore has to
depend largely on the bounty of the admin
istration for its appropriation. This year
the board received only $79,000, the largest
Item being for maintenance. For next year
the present administration increased the
amount $11,000 and undertook to provide
$100,000 additional for boulevard purpose?
by a bond Issue, but this the Council has
The Park Board will ask that 10 cents
of the 90-cent maximum be set aside irre
vocably for park purposes. This would
provide an annual Income for the board,
undisturbed by anything, of $130,000 or more.
The board deems this adequate to carry
forward the work of improvements. Its
chief adavntage is that it gives security
to plans which the board may adopt with
regard to improvements which will require
systematic development through a number
of years. The adoption of this provision is
regarded as necessary by the board in order
that the works already done may not lose
much of their value by their uncompleted
state. There art- driveways to be continued
and completed, water service extensions,
lagoons to be constructed and a hundred
minor Improvements that are more than In
cidental parts of the general park scheme.
They cannot be properly attended to out
of the meager appropriation now made.

Blcknell was given a substantial increase

There were no new developments yester
day in the situation between the Governor
and the members of the board, but it was
said that Governor Durbin had not request
ed the other members to resign. Shtveley
and Terhune were not appointed by the
Governor, and consequently they are un
der no especial obligations to him. Hence
he cannot request them to retire except
for gross neglect of duty, but In the case
of McDonald and Williams, the men whom
hs complimented and gave an especial evi
dence of his confidence In appointing them
tu the board, it is different. Without vio
lating any precedents, or making a rad
ically new dvpnrture. he may request them
to resign when they have violated his con
fidence. They may not have to grant his
request, and. indeed, the Governor may not
attempt to force them out. but it would he
regarded as an unusual proceeding for a
man to Insist on retaining an honorary po
sition, which carries no emoluments, after
the Governor who appointed him had Indi
cated that he wished him to retire.
Senator E. E. Hendee Says He Will
Prepare the Measure.
Senator K. K Hendee. of Anderson, who
was In the city yesterday, announced that
he would father the bill creating a new nor
mal school. "I shall write the bill." said
the senator, "but it will be introduced In
the House, as it will carry an appropria
tion, and all measures of that kind must
originate in the lower branch of 'he Legis
lature. The bill will not specify where the
school Is to be located, but will provide
that the question of location shall be left
to an impartial board of trustees to be
namd by the Governor.
"I hi' t- the measure become a law.
The action of the superintendents at their
meeting here this week ephasises tne need
(or a new normal school. We have laws at
present that physicians and dentists must
be graduates of some college, and I un
derstand that the barters are agitating a
similar law regulating the kind of surgery
practiced unr'tr the sign of the striped pole.
Probitbly fair.
First free schools established in
Roxbury, Mass., 1645. Law passed
in Massachusetts 1647. established
grammar schools. The manufacture
of cloth began in Massachusetts in
1640, and from that day to the pres
ent time
looms hare kept hustling. And still
some men can't get oeer the habit
of buying and selling imported (so
called ) woolens. Come in and let us
show you the real, genuine American
for man and boy
Why should not the teachers of our public
schools be required to pans the course In
a normal school similar to the one now
conducted by the State? If such require
ments are made of the teachers we must
provide more schools for them."
Incidentally It may be mentioned, al
though the information did not come irom
8enntor Hendee, that Anderson will go
after the school should the Legislature
pass the bill. Other cities will enter the
lists, however, and there will be a scramble
that will be lively if not edifying. The bill
proposed by Senator Hendee will have one
virtue that was not possessed by the Mun
de Normal School bill that aroused such a
fight at the last session it Is not inten.lol
to benefit any particular town or city, und
every village in the State may consider that
it stands a chance to get the school If the
bill becomes a law.
Senator Hendee would not go on record
on the voting machine proposition, as he
said he had r.ot given the matter sufficient
consideration. "I can tell you one thing,"
he added, however, "I am 'agin the general
primary raw proposition. Let Marion coun
ty have all the primary law she wants, but
spare the rest of the State."
To Separate the School City from
Steps may be taken at the coming ses
sion of the Legislature to separate the
municipal and school corporations of South
Bend. This was the statement made last
night by Senator Albert M. Burns, of that ;
"South Bend has reached the limit m
taxation," said Senator Burns, "and has
reached the 2 per cent, limit in the amount
of debt. A large number of public improve
ments are under way. Including several
new school buildings, and neither the city
nor the School Hoard has at present the
resources to complete the work. It has
been proposed that the Legislature divorce
the municipal city and the school city, with
the result that money can be raised to
complete our Improvements. The matter
ill doubtless be brought up this winter."
Senator Burns said that he did not in
tend offering any bills for the considera
tion of his colleagues this winter. He was
asked where he stood on the voting ma
chines proposition, and he replied: "I'm
against them. That is, you can say that
I'm from St. Joseph, Mo., instead of from
St. Joseph county, this State, on that ques
tion you must show me. If a thoroughly
satisfactory machine can be secured and
one that will not bankrupt the counties
when they come to pay for it, I may vote
for it."
A. Special Election.
Governor Durbin S'esterday Issued an or
der calling for a special election to fill the
office of sheriff in Greene county. In this
county, where there were such tempestu
ous scenes immediately following the late
election, the Republican and Democratic
candidates for sheriff each received 3,505
votes, according to the decision of the Dem
ocratic canvassing board. Hence the new
election, which will be held Dec. 20, is
Alonso F. Wilson is the Democratic can
didate, and John C Huffman the Repub
lican. The Republican leaders In Greene
county are predicting Huffman's election
next month by a plurality of at least SOU.
Prohibitionists on Silver.
The tilt precipitated between EU F. Ritter
and the Prohibitionists is growing livelier.
Mr. Ritter came out Tuesday with a state
ment that he had left the Prohibitionists
when they declared for free silver In 1896.
and yesterday State Chairman Masters
replied with a counter statement denying
all that Mr. Ritter had affirmed in regard
to the attitude of the Prohibitionists on
the silver question.
ew Senator in Tom.
Marshall E. Newhouse, the new Repub
lican senator from Bartholomew and De
catur counties, who succeeds Senator Lam
bert, of Columbus, was In the city yester
day, and he made a call at the Governor's
office. Mr. Newhouse is not a novice in
legislative affairs, as he was a member of
the House during the sessions of '93 and '95.
John MacFarlane Informed of the
Murder in This City.
When John MacFarlane, a traveling man
from Rochester, N. Y., arrived at the
Spencer House yesterday at noon, he was
handed a telegram telling him of the mur
der of his daughter, Florence MacFarlane.
The telegram asked the father to hastily re
turn home. MacFarlane blames his daugh
ter's married lover. Frank Young, for the
murder, although Young's wife has been
arrested for the crime. Mr. MacFarlane
said that his daughter and Young had been
infatuated with one another for some time
and he often forbade his daughter seeing
tuung. MacFarlane s daughter had ftssu
staying with friends at 543 East Court
street, Rochester, since MacFarlane's wife
died six years ago. Mrs. Young appeared
at the Court-street house Monday and rang
the bell. Miss MacFarlane answered the
call. Mrs. Young at once began beating
Miss MacFarlane. who ran through a hall.
Mrs. Young followed, catching the girl and
stabbing her five times. The girl died al
most Instantly. Both women had been In
timate friends, having worked at the tele
phone exchange together.
Mrs. Young Held for Murder.

The Axtell Colt Malnyard Bring 00
an Top Price Cloning; of Sale
The best horse sale ever conducted in
Indiana will close to-morrow at the sale j
pavilion of the Blair-Baker Company at
the stockyards. Three days' business, in
cluding weanlings, poor horses and all give
an average of $300, or thereabouts, for the
175 horses sold. An average of this kind
maintained with no sale over $950 and few
above $600 is something unusual. The sale j
was a success because It took a good price
for the "crocodiles" to get the good ones i
for the export trade as the Indiana bidders
kept the bidding up. One of the best rea- j
sons why a high average was maintained
was the absence of horses of inferior
Yesterday's sales were the best of the !
week the average being close to $250. The J
longest price was paid for the Axtell colt
Malnyard, out of a Warlock mare, con
signed by S. J. Fleming & Son, Terre Haute.
Jack Dawson, of Frankfort, Ind., got him
for $800. He is a coming four-year-old and
has speed and is a fine individual. A high
price was paid for Baron McMath, 2:154, by
Baron Posey, consigned by M. H. Reardon,
city. A. H. Merrill, of Danvers, Mass., got
him for $650 and he paid the same price for
Ivan B., the Greystone gelding, out of a
mare by Boone Wilson. William McFarland
got Reardon's May Miller, who Is promised
a fast mark as a green mare, for $550. Mc
Farland paid $060 for David H. Ray, 2:244,
a brown gelding of the showiest type that
has been offered at the sale. Twenty min
utes later McFarland sold him to an In
dianapolis harness man for $90 advance. The
black mare Belle Marshall, 2:174, brought
$575 from John Pender, of Johnstown, Pa.

"The city marshal to-day arrested Luther
May nor for carrying a revolver. The boy
showed a card from a bogus detective
agency In Indianapolis, and asserted his
right to carry a revolver. He was re
lieved of the revolver and the card was
turned over to the postal authorities. He
had paid $5 for the card which he supposed
made him a full-fledged detective."

Health, and he will see that no State shall
be better protected against an epidemic.

The Appellate Court yesterday affirmed
the Blackford Circuit Court, which ruled
against canceling a contract between R. R.
and John A. Gadbury and the Ohio and In
diana Consolidated Natural and Illuminat

to have the right to drill for gas and oil on
the Gadbury land, the company to pay the
land owners 1100 a year for the product of
each gas well while the gas was used off
the premises and one-sixth of all oil pro
duced. The complaint alleged that the
company drilled a gas well and found a
large quantity of gas, but closed the well
and refused to transport the gas. The land
ownerB contended that the lease was for
feited by the failure to perform the "Im
plied covenant" to operate.

sion of the Marion Circuit Court awarding
Mary A. Krug $2.500 damages against the
Frank Bird Transfer Company and the In

Libelous Publications Action by Member
of a Class.
In the recent case of Woffard vs. Meeks,
the Supreme Court of Alabama holds that
where a libelous publication Is directed
against a particular class or persons, each
of the persons composing the class may
maintain a separate action therefor upon
snowing that he is a member of the class
and that consequently the words were In
tended to apply to him. Therefore, a news
paper publication charging the court of
Countv Commissioners with corruption in
the use of money raised by taxation af
f. -rdtd a ground of action by any member
of the court. The opinion shows that the
proposition is nt nw. but is supported by
the grest weight of authority, though It Is
one that Is not often raised. It Is a well
established principle that every one has a
right to comment upon matters of public
interest and concern, and this rule applies,
though the publication is made to the gen
eral public by means nf a newspaper or
otherwise. It Is only when the publisher
goes beyond the limits of fair criticism
that his language passes into the region of
libel at oil.

Railroads Rights of Passengers at
Where a railroad permitted a person in a
drunken condition to enter Its waiting room,
and he used Indecent language, and while
armed with a knife made an assault on
plaintiff, a female passenger, the com
pany was liable for damages sustained
thereby. But the husband, who went to the
station with his wife to assist her in
boarding the train without any Intention
of himself becoming a passenger, waa not
entitled to recover against the railroad
company for an assault or Indignity sus

Physicians Skill Required in Treating
Plaintiff brought suit against defendant,
a physician and surgeon, to recover dam
ages for the alleged earelesa and negligent

but by such as is exercised generally bjr
physicians of ordinary care and skill in
