Jajuith was taken from his cell In the state prison on an order from Warden Shideler aud brought before the lat ter, lie was not shown Braddiu's con fession until he had been closely ques tioned by the warden. With reference to the interview Warden Shideler said: "Jaquith was brought Into my office. He was questioned by me tefore he was made aware of any confession. He admitted that the three Kagan. Jaquith and Braddie had broken into the saloon. He said that Ragan picked up a revolver belonging to the saloon keeper, handed it to Braddie, and that when Cooper laid hands on him Jaquith) the other two interfered. In the fight which followed Jaquith was knocked down with a club In the Lands of Officer Cooper. Just at that time a shot was tired, followed by a second shot. "Before he was shown the confes sion he said Braddie was in or about Buffalo, from which place the confes sion had Ikh'Ii mailed to Governor Dur biu. Jaquith persists in his Innocence and says lie is in prison liecause of his previous bad character. He claims that the finding of Braddie will relieve him of his life sentence, although he admits that he should have been sent enced for burglary. Jaquith is a . mode jfc-isoner. and seems to le put-1 ting forth an effort to make the best ! of a bad situation." .... Father Dbe Has Engaged In Further Mannfactnrim; I liter prises.

AT THK CAPITAL. Notes and Comment Arranged By Onr Indianapolis Correspondent. Indianapolis. Oct. 10. Mayor Charles G. Covert of Evansville is here in vestigating a subject of great interest to southern Indiana.. So far the de velopment in the construction of iuter urbsn roads has teen confined almost exclusively to northern Indiana. Now two companies. comjosed of reliable gentlemen, have appealed to the Evansville board of works for iuter urlwtu franchises. They propose, re spectively, to construct lines to Boone ville and Princeton. Mayor Covert is investigating in a very thorough man ner the-intemrban question and has taken excursions over several roads entering Indianapolis. Yesterday he went to Greenfield over the interurlian line. "The companies seeking en trance to our city have, as usual in such cases, submitted propositions that are impossible In almost every detail," he said, "and the board of works ' will come back with counter propositions. There Is a tendency on the part of towns in our iart of the state to discourage any enterprise that would take trade from them to Evans ville. The merchants of Greenfield tell me, however, that the Interurlian railway not only does not divert trade to Indianapolis, but increases their own trade and I shall use their argu ment when I get home." It Is ex pected that the construction of these lnterurban lines out of Evansvillejsail-f: start an era of lnterurban -development In southern Indiana. Ex-Bepresentative Leonidas II.

They are trying to get him to do so, but he will not lie a candidate. If he were to enter the race he would defeat Mr. Watson." As a Food For the Skin. To Maka it Smooth, Healthy and Beautiful.
