William Bettag has Joined the church, and sas fee will abandon his wicked ways. EtV tag is perhaps better known to the police than any other ruffian in the city. For the past five years he figured in police circles, and if not arrested for one thing it was for an other. As a rule, the charge against him was assault and battery with in tent, and when arraigned before the police judge he always escaped with a jail sentence. Every policeman on his beat was warned against him time and again, and told to be on his guard, as Bettag was regarded as dangerous, when drinking, and was known always to carry a weapon. About two months ago Bettag went into Noah Fuquay's saloon, in the West End. and knocked down the pro prietor. Fuquay used a revolver and shot Bettag, the ball entering the liv er. Doctors said he could not live, and plugged the liver np with cotton to keep him from bleeding to death. He did live, however, and a few days ago he left the hospital aad joined the church. He attends services regular ly, aa.d never neglects an opportunity to talk. He has told some of his friends it is his ambition to become a minister. A'innna Assembly Plans. Warsaw. Ind.. Dec. 6.

TOO MICH FOK JONES Kxtreine Views of Humane Society ioriTo II lis ItcaitfiiaMion. Toledo, O., Dec. 6. Mayor Samuel M. Jones has resided from the board of directors of trie .oledo Humane So ciety because its president, Hon. Ja3. M. Brown, who is also president of the American Humane society, declar ed that a man who abandons his chil dren should be put to death. The declaration appears i the. annftware port of the Toledo Humane society and is as follows: "The man who will bring children into the world and in their helplessness desert them, is un fit to bear the image of either brute or man, is an enemy to his race, a traitor to his country, and should be put to death. Yet the legislature of Ohio will send such a man to a stone yard for three months and a man who steals a cow, from one to seven years in the penitentiary." Mayor Jones in a letter to Mr. Brown expressed his respect for the society and its officers in an attempt to benefit mankind, but said that if it were the purpose of the society to kill men for abandonment of children he could not serve as director, and therefore tendered his resignation, as he did not believe in killing anybody for crime. Another Oelay Kor Neely. Washington, Dec. 6. The prosecu tion in the case of Charles F. W. Nee ly, charged with postal frauds in Cuba, has met with a check, which may cause much d(lay in the trial. It appears that the prosecution is of necessity relying largely upon letters setting out testimony taken in the United States. Such depositions may be used lawfully, according to the Spanish practice. But the question has been raised, and has been dis cussed by the cabinet, Is such a pro ceeding lawful under the statute by means of which the extradition of Neely to Cuba was secured? President Greets Indiana. Washington, Dec. 6. Commissioner of Indian Affairs Jones yesterday in troduced to President Roosevelt a del egation of Ute Indians who were anx ious to meet the "great father."

On be ing informed of this fact the presi dent turned to him and said: "Tell your brothers that I had 50 Indians j in my regiment during the war with Spain, and they made fine soldiers." 1 he Indians appeared to be very much pleased when this message was con vened to them. l-.prts Give Kvijt-m-e.

Two hundred and eighty-five delegates, representing more than a million and a half work men, are in attendance at the 21st annual convention of the American Federation of Labor, in session at St. Thomas college hall. The convention is said to be the largest congress of workmen ever held in this country, Organization, settlement of question involving contested seats, and the reading of the annual report of the president, secretary and treasurer, took up the entire first day of the con vention. During the day one surprise was sprung on the delegates and one important decision was made. The surprise came in the form of an ob jection to the seating of the United Mine Workers' delegates because of an alleged arrearage in their per cap ita tax. The objection was overruled by an almost unanimous vote of the delegates. The important question decided related to the contested seat from the Central Labor union from Richmond, Va., which body refused to admit negro workmen to its organiza tion. The dispute was adjusted by seating the Central Labor union rep resentative and instructing the execu tive board of the American Federation of Labor to form a separate central union for colored men in Richmond rN4fNV J- TOBACCO SPIT mmmmAm VoUr IJfcawavl Ton can be cured of any form of tobacco nninfr easily, be made well, atrong. magnetic, full of new life and vigor by taking MO'TO-BAC, that makes weak men atrong.
