COMMISSION
TO CONTINUE
COAL ORDERS
Eschbach Says His Board Will
Keep on Directing in
Emergency Cases.
HAS NOT READ ORDER
Jesse Eschbach, head of the State
coal and food commission, today de
clared that the commission would con
tinue directing that emergency coal or
ders be filled by those operntoTs who
have signified their intention of cooperat
ing with the commission, but that the
Vandalia Coal Company and ftte Vigo
Coal Products Company, plaintiffs In the
suit for an injunction against the com
mission, would be exempted.
Mr. Eschbach would not comment on
the future of the commission, declaring
he had not yet read the entire order of
the Federal Court, which granted a tem
porary Injunction, practically nullifying
the authority of the special coal and
food board.
“I haven't read the order yet.” he
said, “and do not desire to comment on
what the future activities of the com
mission will be. We will proceed as we
have until after the hearing for a perma
nent injunction Is held.
PARTIES TO BVIT
TO BE EXEMPTED.
“The Vandalia Coal Company and the
Vigo Coal Products Company, which
were parties to the suit, will be ex
empted from emergency orders.”
Mr. Eschbach said that as far as he
is Informed no special legislation Is be
ing considered by the administration for
submission to the General Assembly, it
has been reported In several circles that
the incoming officials might take steps
to strengthen and amend the law so that
the commission could operate effectively.
Governor-elect Warren T. McCray,
however, has let it be known that he will
have nothing to say in regard to the
matter in his message to the Legisla
ture, and this is taken by Interested .
parties as an Indication that the com
mission is practically dead and will not ,
be revived.
The question of refunding the fees
charged operators and retailers under the
law Is perplexing Statehouse officials if
It ultimately develops that the measure
Is Invalidated.
A great deal of the money raised by
assessment of fees has been spent in op
erating the special board and In event
It should be decided that the license ,
funds must be returned to the companies
there is a question as to where the money
would come from. It is understood Ele
Stansbury, State Attorney General, has
been asked for an unofficial opinion on
the matter.
Barnard R. Batty of the Ogle Coal
Company has issued a statement charging
that statements made by the Indiana Spe
cial Coal and Food Commission were
“nnfair” to the Vigo Coal Products Com
pany.
“The statement was made by the at
torney for the coal commission," said
Mr. Batty, “in the hearing of the in- •
Junction suit of the Vigo Coal Prod- !
nets Company against the commission u> J
Federal Court that the company had dis- !
criminated against Its contracts In In- ‘
dlana In favor of Its contracts outside ■
of the State.
SHOWS COAL
DISTRIBI TION.
"The reports heretofore submitted to j
the commission show that this state
ment Is unfair to the coal products com- !
pany. The reports In the hands of the j
commission show that the enrire output j
of the coal products company la sold
to the Ogle Coal Company of Indian- I
spoils, a wholesaler, and that the Ogle
Coal Company makes contracts with cus- ;
tomers In and out .of the State of In
diana covering the output of the mines
of the Vigo Coal Products Company and >
other companies. JjutsHle of railway fuel
the Ogle Coal Company has shipped the j
coal received by it, between Indiana and j
other States as follows;

“It may be that a particular mine or
particular company may ship more coal
during some week outside of the State
than into Indiana because of the loca
tion of the mine on some particular!
railroad, or on account of the quality
of the coal produced ,ln some partlcu- .
lar mine, but the report of the Ogle Coal
Company shows that the charge made as
to discrimination against consumers in
Indiana is unfair and that If anything
Indiana consumers have been favored."
New State Auditor
Takes Office Dec. 1
The first of the new State officials
elected Nov. 2 will take office Wednes- 1
day morning, when W. G. Oliver assume*
the duties of auditor of State. Mr. Oliver
succeeds Otto H. Klauss, whose term be- |
gan Nov. 24, 1918.
Mr. Klauss' term expired Nov. 24 of !
this year, but an agreement was made’
between him and his successor, whereby
Mr. Klaus* retained the office until Dec. j
1. Mr. Oliver will begin his duties
Wednesday morning.
An especially strenuous time has been
experienced by Mr. Klauss during his
term, since he was forced to operate bis
office on a meagre appropriation, and It
was dne to his urging that the special
session of the Legislature was called
July 12, to appropriate funds for the
State Institutions. The operation of the
State insurance banking departments
were also under the direction of Mr
Klauss. Mr. Oliver will not hare charge
of these departments, since the special
session of the General Assembly mad*
them distinct State departments.
Mr. Klauss has not announced his
plans after leaving office.

DECLARES PEACH
KING POISONED
Husband of Woman Held
Makes Startling Charge.
MACON, Ga., Nov. 30—With further
arrests In connection with the reported
murder of Fred D. Shepard, wealthy
peach grower, expected hourly, the case
became more complicated today with the
declaration of Dr. Eugene F. Helmer,
husband of one of the four prisoners, that
Shepard undoubtedly had been poisoned.
“When the truth Is known every!,
will be utterly astounded," Elmer stated.
“Developments will come within a week
which will shock all because of their
diabolical nature
"Fred Shepard was poisoned. Not for
one minute would I doubt the word of
those two Atlanta experts, but my wife
Is absolutely unconnected with the plot,
for I know the full story."
Mrs. Annie E. Cutts. wife of Eldrldge
Cutts. prominent attorney, of Fitzgerald,
Ga., the fourth to be arrested In connec
tion with Shepard's death, was lodged in
the county jail here last night.
Hearing of arguments in the petitions
for bail for Mrs. Elmer, former wife of
Shepard-, Mrs lone Henry, Mrs. Elmer's
sister, and Ernst Hopson, Mrs. Elmer's
son by her first husband, will be heard
Dor*. 7.
Meanwhile Solicitor General Charles A.
Garrett, In charge of the State's case,
remained silent as to what evidence he
has against the four prisoners.
Strong opposition will be *made to
granting bail for any of the Tour pris
oners, Garret announced. Indications
were the defense would make a four
cornered fight, separate counsel being en
gaged for each prisoner.
The arrest of Mrs. Cutta was sur
rounded with mystery, as was the arrest
of Mrs. Elmer, Mrs. Henry and Hop
son Saturday night.

Grand Rapids Bank Cashier
Makes Reputed Confession.
GRAND RAPIDS. Mich., Nov. 80.—
Frederick W. French, assistant cashier
of the City Trust and Savings Bank, was
to be arraigned today on charges of em
bezzling between $300,000 and $500,000 of
the bank's funds. He is said to have
confessed peculations extending over a
period of ten years.
French's method, according to his al
leged confession, was ' simple. When
ever a bank examiner Would place se
curities lu an envelope and seal It
French would lift the seal and replace
the securities with blank paper. The
next examiner, seeing the seals on the
envelopes would pass them.
An examiner who was seeking to trace
a email mortgage trapped French. He
discovered the blank paper in one en
velope and opened others. French was
arrested.
French told bank officials that he had
dreams of piling up a fortune that would
rival that of Rockefeller or Morgan. He
said most of Ills deals went wrong aud
produced a card Index purporting to show
what had become of the money ho Is ac
cused of taking. His peculations, It is
said, amount to SIOO,OOO more than the
capital stock of the bank. Directors de
posited $590,000 in order to prevent a
run.

Reveals Startling
Facts Overlooked
By Doctors and Scientists
For Centuries
“I atn eighty-three year* old and I doc
tored, for rheumatism ever since 1 came
out <>f the army over fifty years ago,”
wurtea J. It. Ashelman. “Like many
others. I spent money freely for so
called ‘cures,’ and I have read about
T rie Acid’ until I could almost taste It.
I could not nights or walk without
pain; my hand* were so sore and stiff
I could not hold a pen. But now. ns if
by uiuglc, I am again In active business
and can walk with ense or write all day
with comfort. Friends are aurprlsed at
the change.’
HOW IT HAPPENED.
Mr. Asheliuan Is only olio of thou
sands who suffered for years, owing to
I the general belief In the old, false theory
! thut “Uric Acid” causes rheumatism.
. This erroneous belief Induced him and
| legions of unfortunate men and women to
take wrong treatments. You might Just
as "well attempt to put out a tire with oil
to try and get rid of your rheuinu
■tism, neuritis and like complaints, by
taking treatments supposed to drive
Uric Acid out of your blood and body.
Many physicians and scientists now
know that Uric Acid never did, never
enn and never will cause rheumatism;
that It Is a natural and necessary con
stltuent of tlie blood; that It is found in
every new-born babe; and that without
It we could not live!
These statements may seem strange to
some folks, w'ho have all along been led
to believe in the old “Uric Acid” humbug.
It took Mr. Ashelr.iun fifty years to find
out tills truth. He learned how to get
rid of the true cause of his rheumatism,
i other disorders, and recover Ills strength
from "Tho Inner Mysteries," a remark
able book now being distributed free by
an authority who devoted over twenty
years to the scientific study of this par
ticular trouble.
NOTE: If any reader of the The Dally
Times wishes the book that reveals these
facts regarding the true cause and cure
of rheumutlsm, facts that were over
looked by doctors and scientists for cen
turies past, simply send a post card or
letter to 11. P. Clearwater, No. 152 £
Street, Hallowell, Maine, and it will be
sent by return mail without any charge
