Chicago Voters About to Cast
A Deciding Vote on a Prob
lem That Has Long Been
UPPERMOST TEN YEARS.
Republicans and Democrats
Alike Are Confident of Vic
For Vituperative Nature.
Chicago. April 1. With tonight's
meetings in Chicago, which will be the
' republican gathering at the Auditori
um, will come tne end of an exception
ally hard fought and exceptionally bit
ter city campaign of the highest im
portance. When the voters vote to
morrow they will have the chance to
write "finis' to a vexatious municipal
question which for ten years has been
the alpha and omega, the sum total of
city politics. For ten years candi
dates have fought ami mayors have
been elected on traction issues, with no
effect on the question itself. The
street car systems show ten years"
wear and tear and little or no better
ment. Republicans Are Confident.
Republican political leaders, in fin
ishing the hard work of the campaign
are confident that not only will the or
dinances be endorsed by the vote of
the people and ltusse elected to suc
ceed Dunne, but that the entire repub
lican city judicial and sanitary tickets
will be elected. On the other band,
the democrats assume to know that
"Dunne will occupy the mayors chair
at an increased salary of l.s.(. and
that t.i'1 Mieet ordinances fs named.

the peope want municipal ownership
now and not twenty years hence.
Term Has Been Extended.
The term for which Mr. Busse and
"Mayor Dunne are candidates, is a. four
year cue. the first in the city's history,
and for that reason the election is of
double importance. The campaign has
"been a most vituperative one and
marked by libel suits. W. R. Hearst
"began this leal game by suing the
Chicago Tribune for reprinting por
tions of Roofs New York speech.
"Hearst made the figures .2,r( ',( .
Then Mr. Busse came back at Hearst,

end is not yet. according to public
threats made on both sides. Leaders
of all parties expect a fierce election

to man the polls fully. Tenor of the

The sad-faced, peace-loving cows of

stirring up strife among the farmers

of Clay township cows, seems to be i
about equally divided.
This merry fight, which has been
waging for some time, came to a focus
this morning, when one faction of
Clay township residents presented a re
monstrance against the order of the
board of county commissioners allow
ing cows and other animals to wander
at large along the highways, and the
other faction presented a petition to
the commissioners urging them not to
rescind the order. There were over
one hundred names signed to the re
monstrance and an equal number cf
names were attached to the petition.
Arguments Are Heard.
About 11 o'clock this morning
spokesmen for the two warring fac

to wander at large were a public mii

things that they should not do.

POTS SPIRIT INTO
HIS REVIVAL WORK
The Rev. Allen Wilson Believes
In Up-to-date Methods of
Rousing the Public.
MAY USE THE COLISEUM.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT HE WILL
SPEAK ON "IF CHRIST SHOULD
COME TO RICHMOND" CHRIS
TIAN CHURCH SERVICES.
Marked by typical Easter services,
large attendance, a chorus of ' fifty
voices, which rendered several beauti
ful selections, two powerful sermons,
baautiful solos and what is still more a
spirit for accomplishment among the
members, the revival services at tho
Christian church began Sunday under
most auspicious circumstances. The
crowd attending the morning service
filled the auditorium, while that at
night taxed the seating capacity of the
entire church, and the agitation was
immediately started for holding the
services in the Coliseum, that mere
people could be accomodated who
wished to attend the meetings.
Whether or not this will be done is
still a matter of doubt, but if the Rev.
Allen Wilson, ean pursuade the mem
bers of the congregation to accede to
his wishes, such will be the case, for,
as he put it Sunday night, when he
viewed the large crowd, "The church
is full and probably seventy-five per
cent of those here are church mem
bers, and it is the other people whom
I wish to reach; we should secure ,a
larger meeting place."
Sermons of Much Power.
The two sermons by the Rev. Wil
son were of much power and he im
mediately inspired the members of the
congregation to the highest pitch of
enthusiasm, and all are predicting the
greatest revival ever known in the
history of the church. The Rev. Wil
son himself stated thnt the Richmond
field is a good .one and everything
points to a great meeting.
The Rev. Wilson's morning topic
was "How Nehev. ah built the wall"
and he direct d tic message chiefly to
those who were already members of
the church, urging each to do his
most efficient work during the meet
ing, and all work together for the
saving of souls. In the course of his
remarks he showed the work Nehemi
ah has accomplished by taking others
into his confidence and allowing them
to work with him, and of the ultimate
great good accomplished. He further
continued to show how the success of
the present revival meeting depends
largely upon the members of the con
gregation and how each one was a
link in the chain of success which
should not be broken by some one
shirking his duty.
Posters Are Put Up.
At the morning services, posters
similar to the large window cards
which have been placed in the up town
store windows, were given to the
members of the church to be placed
in the windows of their homes and
many of these, were placed about the
In the evening. Rev. Wilson dis
coursed upon the "Resurrection of Je
u,uu "l JC"
sus Christ," and gave a
ble appeal, showing how the entire
faith of the Christian is based upon
the belief that Christ rose from ,the
dead. Mr. Wilson is a rapid fire spea
ker but with it all he speaks so dis
tinctly that no part of his message is
lost by his audience.
Prof. W. F. Lintt, the soloist ami co
worker of Rev. Wilson, at once es
tablished himself favorably with all
his hearers in the solos of Sunday. He
possesses that charm in singing wlych
consists in throwing his whole soul in
to the message that he gives and that
feeling he imparts to the audience.
The special chorus which has been ar
ranged for the meeting, numbered
about fifty on Sunday and occupied all
the platform space available. Prof.
Lintt will make an endeavor to se
cure a chorus of at least one hundred
if possible, before the meeting has
progressed very far.
If Christ Should Come-.
Rev. Wilson will speak tonight upon
"The Bible, How to Use it." Tuesday
night his subject will be the "Death
of Jesus Christ," and on Wednesday
night he will speak on "If Christ Came
to Richmond." The last named topic
promises to draw one of the largest
crowds ever assembled in the church,
as many people will desire .to hear
just what the famous evangelist has to
say about conditions in Richmond.
As he has a habit of handling subjects
without gloves the address promises
to be a most interesting one.

The above figures show the great increase in advertising the merged
paper, The Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram, carried during the month
of March as compared to the amount of advertising carried by the Palla
dium during February. From the figures of both the Palladium and Sun
Telegram and the Item it can readily be seen that in total advertising the
Palladium an 6un-Telegram carried 1,068 inches more of total advertising
than Hid its competitor, the Item. In local advertising the Palladium and
Sun-Telegram carried 1,479 inches more than did the Item-. And besides this
the Palladium and Sun-Telegram showed a gain for the month in foreign ad
vertising of 100 per cent as compared to only 24 per cent gain for the Item.
All these gains clearly show that advertisers, both foreign and local, re
alize that they can obtain better results from the Palladium and Sun-Telegram
than they can from the Item. And they naturally do get better results
as the Palladium and Sun-Telegram leads the Item in paid circulation by
2,000 subscribers or more.

Mr. Hebble carried several buckets of

have succeeded in saving the home
from total destruction had it not been
for the high wind which fanned the
blaze beyond his control. Fortunate

By the time Mr. Hebble realized that
he could not check the fire, neighbors
began to arrive and under the super
vision of Mr. Hebble the work of sav

floor was successfullj- carried out. All
the property on the first floor of the
house, including a piano, was saved,
but none of the household goods on the
second floor could be removed.
The Hebble home was rebuilt about
three years ago. and was one of the
finest country homesteads in the coun
ty, having all modern improvements.
Mr. Hebble probably will rebuild his
home this spring.
