It Is Decided to Enlarge It To Supply the Needs Of The Growing City. A meeting of councilmen was held last evening at the office of the city cleric, on call of the health officer, Dr. Davis. It has Ions; been an ac knowledged fact that the present citv hospital, or pesthouse, is not as commodious or as well arranged as oie !bould be for a city of this size, and the matter of its enlargement and better arrangement was consid ered. The matter was brought up at this time since the making of the new track yards in the north end by the Pennsylvania company will make it possible to do it very cheaply and without delay. There ire a num ber of reasonably good houses on the ground which will be re moved or destroyed one of which will be just wht is needed for the use to which the city will put it. The matter was re ferred to the railroad committee and the committee on public buildinirs and grounds to consider with Mr. Ohliger and secure one of these houses, which will be removed there at once. By this means the city will have two buildings which will avoid much of the difficulties we have had, such as trying to put colored peop'e and white people in the same build ing; and it will be possible to have seclusion for female patients also, which has long been needed. A little matter which is troubling the city fathers in this connection is how to get the house over there after the railroad company gives it to them. The cityeugineer declares that the Doran bridge will not stand the strain of hauling a bouse across it; ar.d while the Main street bridge would stand it the overhead crossing of the C. R. & M. road is such that the house would not go under it. One of the city officials approves the idea however of taking it across tie Doran bridge anyway. He says that abridge which cost as much as that one did and won't stand any strain that m"d-m life might make necessary ought to be broken down anyway. He will recommend that the engine be taken across and the house pulled across with ropes; "and f she breaks down let her break." DEFEATED At Muncie A Rough and Tuirble Game Referee Accused of Un fairness. The western championship game of join at Muncie last night between Richmond and Muncie resulted 5 to 2 in favor of Muncie. The Indi anapolis Journal's report of the game says: With the adoption of the eastern rules Muncie felt that its much lighter team would be protected, and Eddie Higgins, the new mm, would b able to work. Richmond began by tackling Higirins, fouling by siev ing him around the waist o stop his rushes. Referee Redding scored the fouls and soon wiped out Rich mond's 6it goal with three. After that two . more were credited, and an officer was called on the floor to put Patterson, of Rich mond, out of the rink for cursing the referee. Two fouls were called on Muncie s players. All of Richmond's fouls were made on Higgins, who scored Muncie's five goals. Van Al len scored three for Richmond, buta ore was taken off for fouls, leaving the score 5 to 2 iu Muncie's favor. Richmond players say the referee took the life out of their play, and Muncie players admit that he called two fouls that were not made, but s-ay others were not scored when tbey should have been. An eastern man probably will be secured to ref eree the games in the three cities.

Indianapolis. Jan. 28. The United Mine Workers took yesterday what ia regarded by many of the delegate as the most important action of tbe con vention. A resolution came from In diana district No. 11, providing that the convention should levy an assess; ment on all the members of the organ ization uutfliieiit for the 'purpose of carrying to a speedy and successful termination all strikes now engaged t in by the entire organisation." After considerable debate another motion that the amount of the assessment be left to the national executive board to determine was passed. Before ad journment President Mitchell, who is head of the executive board, had an understanding with the convention that the levy was to cover only such strikes as have the indorsement of th national board. The purpose of the resolution pro viding for the assessment is v-'er-stood to be mainly to bring to an end as soon as possible the Hopkins coun ty (Kentucky) and the Thacher and Matewan (West Virginia) strikes, all of which have been In progress for several months, and have been costing the organizations many thousands ot -dollars. The miners believe they are in a fair way to win in both states, it there is co-operation on the part of alt members. The Indiana miners have been paying a part of their wages for several months for the maintenance of the Ken'.ucky men. It Is tbe purpose of the miner tc light tbe operators to the end In all these strikes, as the principle ot whether or not the organization is to be recognized is at stake. The Deadlr Gasoline.
