Corridor Spooning With Interne
Is Rumored Cause of
Physician Denies He Was in
Any VV ay Involved in Girl's
Sudden Leave taking
Antiseptic treatment is being. given at
Lane hospital to the report: that. Misa
Mabel Saliado, one of the young, women
nurses at the institution, has: left the
training school after a clash .with the
.hospital authorities. An effort : was
made at the, hospital last evening to
ajiasthetize the rumor that conditions
at the hospital have led. the authorities
to Issue a set of rules carefully re
stricting the relations between the
pretty nurses and the Internes of the
hospital and the students of Cooped
medical college, with which the sana
taricm is affiliated.
Romance Rumored
Behind the retirement of Saliado' and
the report of the new rules of con
duct, is the story, of a romantic ad
venture at the hospital on Sunday even
ing. This . story the hospital people
would amputate of all its limbs, but
it is reported to be in effect that Miss
Scott, superintendent of nurses, dis
covered Mifs Saliado and Dr. Sylvan
Haas, an , interne at the : hospital, to
gether In one of the corridors at a time
when the young nurse might have been
about lier professional duties.
. Doctor Haas, when seen last even
ing, denied emphatically that he was
In any way involved in the/trouble
Miss Saliado had with the hospital au
"Miss Saliado, I believe, left the hos
pital of hjr own volition. I believe
that she might have had some dispute
with the superintendent over a trivial
matter, over some detail of duty, but
no doctor or student was in any way
involved In the incident.
Not Involved
"As for me, I was in no way or-man
ner concerned at all. .'.I : know . very
little about ike occurrence, beyond that
It was some personal matter dispute
between Miss Saliado and her superi
ors, and she left tha hospital freely and
of her own will and was not dismissed.'.'
Miss Irving, night superintendent' of
nurses, stated last evening that she
knew of no rules of the hospital re
cently promulgated restricting the con
duct of nurses and doctors. She said
that were there any such rules she
would know about them. '.
"As for Miss Saliado," said Miss Irv
ing, "she left the hospital of. her own
accord, and not as a consequence •of
any action by. herself or her superiors."
Tom Taggart Denounced as

John E. Lamb
INDIANAPOLIS, April 26.— Thomas
Taggert was openly denounced as a
"boss" before a packed crowd in the
lobby of the Dcnison hotel this after
noon by John E. Lamb of Terre Haute,
who declared, in a speech, , that ""the

the convention would. indorse. a candi
date for the United; States senate.
Both Taggert, former chairman of
the nationnl democratic committee, and
Lamb,' present vice chairman, of the
committee, are candidates for the sena
torial nomination.

arrived today from Washington,? and
who .will be permanent chairman of the
convention, to 1 bring about peace and
harmony. . .', ;„ \u25a0 ; •

Quarrel Between Family and
Apartment Owners Awakens
Amazing Love for Pets
View Darkening Fence Rises by
Magic When Price, on Prop*
erty Is Rejected
/. Planned by a woman to circumvent
the schemes of a wily contractor, the
Mueller "spite fence,". which for months
had disturbed the serene . atmosphere
of the Presidio residence district, came
into the limelight again yesterday, when
it was learned that an attempt .would
be made to have the board of public
works condemn the "^unsightly struc-'
ture, which makes the west side of the
.fashionable Terrace apartments look
like a hencoop in distress.
"Whether the offending structure is a
"spite fence," as the apartment, owners
declare, or an '-. "unfinished : aviary," as
Mrs,* Charles X Mueller avers, is a
quesUpn which the municipal" authori-.
ties will no doubt be asked to-deter
mine: Should they decide : that it looks
like and is a component part of a bird
cage .the tenants of .the terrace are
forever shut off from the beautiful
western view 'and may as well put
'."'%'Thc '"spile fence" or '''.unfinished aviary X-fiiie result of;a : bitter, realty
figfit in the Presidio terrace 'district. Mrs. C. : 'Fi. Mueller, the orvner and
architect of the "aviary" ; Miss Erma Mueller, ivh'o drenched the roorl^men
roith [a hose, and! Henry I \]V;agner, * building superintendent, who % figured
conspicuously in the „ dispute: \ , ;-! : \ .- . y < -
shutters on their diniiipr rooi^'windows.
On the other hand, should the decision
bo that the wall' of boards i*< a; "spite
fence", it will simply be^the-basis of a
lawsuit that will make history. '
Has Dramatic History
Mrs. Mueller, who resides at 210 Lake
street, is the owner of . the unfinisried
aviary, and the firm of McDonald &
Applegarth ' is the owner of the'; ad
joining property, on which they re
cently erected the Terrace apartments,
which they declare are menaced by the
apite fence. The history of the spite
fence itself is- replete with sensations,"
such as the hurling of defiance at burly
workmen by the beautiful daughter of
Mrs. Mueller and a courageous stand,
or rather sit, of the girl to malntaiti
the rights of the family *property; a
battle between, the workmen- and a
cohort of neighbors led by the pretty
daughter, who used a garden hose and
routed her adversaries; an all -night
job of /amateur carpenters in ••• fence
building, and others of a like char
acterJ m \u25a0 \u25a0'."" :''- ' : ; •. \u25a0>'. - •;;'; ; - ' •";.*-
. Tho trouble iirst. arose in September
of last • year, when . McDonald & .Ap
plegarth began the construction of the
apartments. ' The plans showed that
the Lake street front would be car
ried out to the building line, shutting
off the Mueller residence, which stood
back 19 feet. ; They also showed that
the revolving windows on the west aide
of the apartments would swing out
over the M ueller property and that the
said west side could not be. linlshed
without permission:' from the said
Muellers .to erept; scaffolding on the
latter's property. -„" :.<,
Could Not: Fix Price -

ler property, to McDonald &Applegarth
came !to nothing. Mrs.' Mueller^ de
manded $B,soojand the* prospective buy
ers were, willing pay only ?2,200. ; The
war was on, and;it.was a merry one. •
