Offer of n Bond If He Would Quit Indianapolis Detectives Will Con tlnoe Their Work. Rufus Cantrell yesterday, In talking to sis attorney, Cass Connoway, said he had been approached by a prominent attorney who agreed to furnish him bond if he would leave the city. Cantrell said he would not accept bond unless it was also fur fllshed for the other negro ghouls. He said it would not be right to disclose the name of the man who made the offer, as It was done in confidence. Cantrell said be thinks he is not being treated right by the authorities in regard to his bond. He thinks It should be made lower, as he has tod everything he knows and the detec tives and prosecutors have profited by it in arresting the other white ghouls. He aaid be would not close his mouth now, as he baa firmly made up his mind to tell every thing and Incriminate everyone who has bad anything to do with the stealing of bodies. Cass Connoway. Cantrell's attorney, said yesterday when he heard of the offer made to hit client, that Cantrell, although a negro ghoul, had yet some principles that would not allow him to accept the offer made by the attorney. "Cantrell," he dp. id. "could not be induced to leave the city at this time, even If he were let out a bond." He said that from what Can trell has told him In confidence the in vestigation is not yet one-third through. There are many yet to be arrested, he said, and some of them are men prominent In the medical profession. The preliminary hearing of Charles F. Kigga, Dr. Kincaid. Garfield Buckner. Hampton West and William Mot was to have been held yesterday morning, but Judge Stubbs and Prosecutor Collins post poned the cases. This was done, it was explained, to allow the grand Jury plenty of opportunity to investigate the charges Of grave robbing against each man. In the cases of Charles Rlggs and Dr Xincald It Is thought they will not be in dieted. They explained at the time of their arrest that they accompanied Can trell and McEndree on one grave-robbing trip just for the experien Detectives Asch and Manning, who have been eonducting the investigation, will hold the work irk abeyance for another week Asch will leaVe on his vacation next Mon day and will be absent in New York for a week. When he returns the work will again be taken up and it is expected that the other white ghouls now under suspi cion will btf placed under arrest. A meeting of those Interested in seeing the ghouls prosecuted will be held to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock in W. T. Long s atablc on East Wabash street. Long is Interested in the case on account of the boy of his brother-in-law. Wallace John son, being stolen. Long was instrumental In engaging Attorney V. T. Brown to as atst Prosecutor Ruc-kelshaus in the prose cution. It is said that $500 is needed to aid the attorneys. Petitions asking for finan cial aid will be sent to Fisher's Station and other points in Hamilton county the home of Hampton West The lattt-r has borne the reputation among the Hamilton eoutity farmers of being a grave robber, and It is thought on account of the high feeling against him much money will be contributed. Superintendent Taffe last night received a Mtr from a farmer living three milts south on the Thrtf Notch road calling u tent'en tc an experience he had one night last su-nmer with four ghouls at Roun 1 Hill C emetery The farmer, who did not sign hi name, but who will call at the po lice station, said thst whn the bodies of Mrs. Bremm r and her daughter wn stolen from Hound Hill Cemetery he mai. an effort to arouse the sexton, but a col ored man holding a pistol at his head caused him to change his mind.

Meridian St INDIANAPOLIS SCHOOL BOARDS OF STATE THE FIRST CONVENTION A SICCESS Ol EVERY WAY. An Amendment Favored by Cans. W. Moore, of This City School Su perintendents Adjonrn. The first annual meeting of the State As sociation of School Boards was concluded in the Statehouse yesterday. The meet ing was a success in every particular and the next annual meeting will be held In November of 1903. The following officer? were elected for the ensuing year: Presi dent, W. H. Anderson, Wabash; first vice president, A. C. Huber, East Chicago; sec ond vice president, S. B. Lowe, Bedford; third vice president. Clem Pelzer, Boon llle; fourth vice president, Allan Ham ilton. Fort Wayne; fifth vice president, Charles W. Moores, Indianapolls; secretary, J. W. Ratcliflf, West Tcrre Haute; treas urer, the Rev. Wilson Blackburn, Mount Vernon; executive committee, A. M. Swee ney, Indianapolis; W. C. Chaffee, Hunting ton; B. F. Bennett, Qreensburg. The address of Charles W. Moores was the principal thing before the meeting yes terday. Mr. Moores made a sharp arraign ment of the Indiana school system and proposed several changes in the laws. He said that most schoolhouses in Indiana are poorly heated, lighted and ventilated. He said poor conditions exist in the cross road schoolhouses and in larger cities. He said the day of manual training in the wood has gone and soon the children of those who had the benefit of it must do without or look for its substitute in the schoolroom. Mr. Moores advocated an amendment to the Indiana school laws to end what he called the present legalized favoritism in the distribution of the school tax. Mr. Moores said that Marion county paid into the State tax from $30,000 to 150.000 more a year than she drew out to assist in maintenance of her schools. He said he believed a community ought to have the right to levy all the tax It can afford upon its own property to support its own schools, but it ought not to have to make any levy upon its own property for the support of schools in other municipalities. Mr. Moores called attention to the padded enumera tions In some parts of the State, where officials make returns showing more school children than there are in their districts, so they may, in the per capitr. uistribution, steal from the State school revenues to keep down the local levy. To overcome these inequalities Mr. Moores suggested the following plan: "Wipe out all of the State levy except a small tax to swell the common school fund; give to each munici pality power to levy whatever Its own schools need, and take away or greatly curtail the power to borrow." He also sug gested the need for new liquor legislation. He said present unlicensed dealers should be compelled to pay a license. Mr. Moores said teachers should be bet ter paid, school terms in rural districts should be longer and schools should be better equipped. a SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS. A Committee Named to Work for a New Normal School. The Town and City School Superintend ents' Association concluded its annual meeting at the Statehouse yesterday. Next year's meeting will be held In Indianapolis at such time as is set by the executive committee. The principal business at the closing session was the report of the com mittee selected to examine into the feasi bility of establishing another State Normal school. The committee reported favorably, but the place for Its location was not men tioned. The report was adopted, but not unanimously. The committee, composed of J. W. Carr. C. M. McDaniel and R. A. Ogg, was re appointed as a special legislative commit tee to present the matter before the next Legislature. R. A. Ogg, superintendent of the Kokomo city schools, spoke of his stand on the vaccination question. He explained that personally he was In favor of vaccination, but that he did not believe a child should be kept out of the schools because its parents were opposed to vaccination. He urged that a bill should be Introduced that would limit the absolute authority of op pression of health boards that might be wise or otherwise. PYTHIAN SMOKER.

Indianapolis Lodge No. 56, Knights of Pythias, gave a smoker at Castle Hall, last night, which was attended by many of the members of the order cf Indianapolis and many of the visitors to the city who are here attending the various conventions held during the week.

The boys, while seated in the detectives' office, admitted therr guilt. Fisher began by telling what he knew of the robberies, and in so doing incurred the anger of the other two. A war of words followed, and it took the efforts of Captain Gerber and the two Frankfort officers to quell the disturbance. The boys belong to an organised gang of thieves of this city. Mr. Sherrick's Appointments. State Auditor-elect Sherrlck has definitely selected the subordinates for the office dur ing his term and there will be no change unless one or two who have the matter under consideration should decline.

M 'Ml' RR AY WASTED TO COL LECT nStRA.ME. Succession of Incendiary Fires Traced to Her by Arrest Last Might She Confesses. Several times the fire department has been called to extinguish small fires at the home of Mrs. Jefferson McMurray, colored, lnl5 Broadway. On the occasion of the first fire, about one month ago, the firemen de tected the odor of kerosene. Their suspi cions were aroused, and they reported the matter to the police. Other tires at the same place brought the firemen, and each time the odor of kerosene was prominent about the little house. The third and fourth times the department was called several of the firemen noticed charred pieces of newspaper lying In the yard near where the fire started. There was no doubt In their minds that efforts had been made to set Mrs. McMurray's house on fire. It was said by some that the woman's hus band, Jefferson McMurray, who is sepa rated from his wife and boarding at HI West Eleventh street, was responsible. The residents in the locality f Tenth and Broadway had become alarmed. They asked the police department to keep watch. It was said by some that McMurray often came in the neighborhood after dark, and, while not going to his wife's house, would walk through the alley In the rear, and also walk on Broadway opposite the front of the house. The matter was cleared up last night, shortly after 7 o'clock, when another fire was discovered at the McMurray home. The firemen, after extinguishing the slight fire, made an investigation. On their ar rival a small blaze was seen in the middle of one of the rooms. After breaking In the rear door the odor of kerosene was again detected. The fire consisted of a pile of newspapers in the middle of the second room. It was quickly put out. The firemen found that the front and rear doors had been nailed tight. Patrolmen Condell and Jordan, who arrived at the place shortly after roll call, were apprised of the case. They sought Mrs. McMurray, who had just returned home. She was questioned about the burning of the place, and at first de nied it. Her husband was also found Both were arrested on the charge of arson. Mrs. McMurray. after arriving at the po lice station, admitted that she tried sev eral times to burn her hme. She said that she had the house and furniture Insured for $30ii. and it was to get this money that sh tried to burn the place. The hous- is a small one-story frame structure, just south of Allen Chapel. SCOTTISH RITE CLASS THE ANNVAL (OXVOCATIOX HELD Hi INDIANAPOLIS.

GRAND WARDEN CONTEST EDWAED K ARR AR, OF Rl SHVILLE. WIM THE FIGHT. An Important Change Made In the Laws of the Cirand Lodge Nam ing of the Officers. The Grand Lodge, I. O. O. F., adjourned yesterday afternoon after a lively session in which Ed Farrer. of Rushville. won the contest for the office of grand warden. Karri's leading opponent was R. H. Holly wood, of Indianapolis. On the first ballot there were twenty-one candidates and Hollywood led by a sub stantial number. However, several of the candidates dropped out on the second ballot and Farrer received enough votes to tie him with the Indianapolis man. The third ballot was thrown out because of alleged stuffing of the ballot box, and on the fourth Farrer was declared the winner. Considerable time was consumed with each ballot, It requiring several minutes to collect the thousand odd ballots and still longer to count them, but instead of wait ing in idleness the Grand Lodge filled in the intervals with the consideration of routine business, disposing of a number of committee reports. The session was opened at 9 o'clock In the forenoon and reports of committees was the first order of business. In this line one important change was made in the gen eral laws of the Grand Lodge. This was a provision that any Odd Fellow who was convicted of running a saloon, or owning a saloon, or acting as bartender, should be expelled. The Sovereign Grand Lodge had had this law on Its records for several years, but the Grand Lodge of Indiana has never had it and some little trouble has re sulted because of the omission. Another important law adopted was one to the effect that a candidate must present himself for Initiation within six months after being elected to membership, other wise he will forfeit his rights. In line with Secretary Leedy's warning that the Grand Lodge was paying sick benefits, etc., out oi proportion to its resources, and that if the policy were continued it might result disastrously, it was ordered that a member in order to receive nurses and watchers in sickness at the expense of the order must have his dues all paid and be in good standing. Heretofore a member could se cure these attentions no matter how much he was delinquent. A committee on necrology was appointed to prepare accurate obituaries of deceased officers of the Grand Lodge at the earliest post-ible date after death. The Grand Lodge voted to refuse an offer of $275.000 for the lot and building owned by the order at Pennsylvania and Wash ington streets. It is understood that the ofier was made by a company of Indianap olis capitalists, although It is not known who were in the company. The Grand Lodge will sell its property, but It wants at least $300,000 for it. In addition to Grand Warden Farrer, other officers were elected as follows: E. E. Pryor, Martinsville, grand master; Alex ander Johnson. Fort Wayne, deputy grand master; W. H. Leedy, Indianapolis, grand secretary; W. A. Morris, Frankfort, grand treasurer; W. A. Bornwasser, New Albany, grand representative; E. G. Hogate, grand trustee. The following appointive officers were named: Grand chaplain. Isaac W. Singer, Anderson; grand instructor, W. H. Tal bott, Orleans; grand marshal, Hurry C. Hay. Shelbyvllle; grand conductor, John H. Jones, Martinsville; grand guardian, H. M. Kean, Jasper; assistant grand guardian, H. V. Dunkin. Spencer; assistant grand herald. A. B. Hodlock. Logansport. The following committee from the Grand Lodge attended the funeral of Past Grand Master Binkley at Bichmond during the day: George L. Bhlnehart, E. G. Hogate, T. R. Jessup and M. A. Chlpman. Appreciates the Honor. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. RUSHVILLE, Ind., Nov. 20. Edwin Far rer, who was elected grand warden by the Indiana Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows in Indianapolis to-day. is editor of the St.ir-Graphic, of this city, and is one of Rushville's most prominent and popular men. A movement is under way for a suitable expression of the city's apprecia tion of the honor brought to it in Mr. Far rer's election. PLYMOUTH CHURCH MEETING. Site for a w Building; May Be Se lected Mondny Night. An annual meeting of Plymouth Church, which Is temporarily holding services in the Jewish Temple, corner of Delaware and Tenth streets, was held last evening. The meeting was for the purpose of hearing a report of the committee regarding a site on which to erect a building, and also to choose officers for the ensuing year. The annual meeting at which the reports of the financial standing of the church will be made will be held early In January. The committee to investigate sites for a new church is composed of Mrs. John B. Elam, chairman, and Albert Babb, David A. Myers, Frank M. Fauvre, Frank M. Blanchard, Frank M. Flanner and Henry H. Fay. Two lots were reported on, one of which will likely be chosen at a meeting of the congregation of the church next Monday night. The sites which the com mittee referred to the members of the church for consideration are the Porter property on East Michigan street, between Delaware and Alabama, and the property of Granville Ballard. 539 North Meridian str-et. The one most desirable is not known, and the price of each is kept a secret by those In charge of the matter. The Porter property is Gu by 120 and the Ballard lot is t0 by 130. Either would be a good location for a church. The former Is surrounded by streets and alleys, while the other property is in a good location and would make a desirable church lot. The whole congregation will meet next Monday night and vote on the two sites. All of the old officers of the church were re-elected as follows: Henry H. Fay, clerk; Edwin F. Hill, treasurer, and Henry M. Stackhouse and David A. Myers, deacons. The trustees elected are F. W. Flanner and F. M. Fauvre. The former takes the place of Charles S. Lewis. The committee on church work, which Is a sort of executive committee, was se lected and Is made up of the following members: Mrs. M. A. Allerdlce, Robert W. Hobbs. William C. Koehne. Mrs. O. S. Run nells. Dr. C. B. McCullough. William A. Bell, Mrs. Samuel Denny, Miss Augusta Paver. Charles P. Doney and Mrs. George W. Bass. The church has a fund of 120,000 to pay on a church lot. THE PEGG HEIRS. Over One Hnndred Meet to Advance Their Claims. About 125 of the claimants of the famous Pegg estate met at the Grand Hotel yes terday and formed a permanent organiza tion for the purpose of fighting their claim. On August 25 a temporary organiza tion was effected and it was perpetuated yesterday by the election of officers as fol lows: President. Dr. Cook. Carmel; secre tary, Mrs. Lydia Cook. Anderson; treas urer. Mrs. Amanda Wells. Indianapolis. Ben C. Miller, of the firm of Partlow & Miller, and Fred Cady were employed as attorneys by the association to investigate the Pegg estate and take the necessary steps to establish the claims of the heirs. If their search shows that the members of the association have any foundation for their claims. Those who were present at yesterday's meeting represfnted the States of Indiana. Ohio. Michigan. Pennsylvania and West Virginia. They claim an estate in the heart of the city of Philadelphia, said to be valued at more than $1QO.00,000. Their story is that the Peggt originally came from England, and were among the earliest settlers of Philadelphia. Daniel Pegg. it is said, obtained possession of over 900 acres on which the principal business portion of the city is now situated. In 1793 or 17V4, It Is said by some of the heirs, he leased his land, which had then dwindled to 350 acres, to the city for a period of 99 years. Daniel Pegg. it is said, died a bachelor, but William and another brother married, and the heirs who gathered here yesterday are their descendants. A number of the Peggs reside in Randolph county, this State, but there are members of the family in several other counties. REVIVAL METHODS. Arrangement to Re Made at Trinlty Congregatlonal Church.
