Proposed Park and Driveway Have Not Been Abandoned But Effort to Secure Them Will Be Continued. Cambridge City, Ind., April 6. The business men of Cambridge City are dissatisfied with the proposed removal of the postonice from its present lo cation to a building which Postmaster Guyton intends to erect just west of the Iiig Four tracks on Main street, on a lot which he has purchased of Mrs. Henry Kothe. The patrons of the postoffice declare that the office is not any too centrally located now and a further removal from the central part of the city would greatly inconvenience them. They will appeal to the postoffice depart ment at "Washington in an effort to have the office remain in the present location, the Swiggett block. The government quarters at present are not large enough to accommodate the rural route carriers but the busi ness men think with some changes it j could be made to answer the needs till a better place could be found.

If the opinions voiced at the .meet ing of the "West Side Improvement as sociation Friday night are heeded' ul timately, all that territory west of the river will be divided into two separ ate wards by the city council. The meeting held Friday night was a rous pr from the point of enthus'asm. Ceorge Matthews was authorized to circulate a petition among the resi dents of West Richmond, favoring the division and this probably will be pre sented to the city council at it's i-ext meeting. The opinion on the est Side, both in West Richmond and in Kaii-vicw, is practically unanimous in favor 'of the move. The Fairview civic league placed its stamp of ap proval on the plan at its meeting Thursday night when it likewise au thorized a petition among the people of Fairview. Is no Close Alliance.

O. F. will confer the first degree upon two candidates Monday evening. Did you notice the smug, contented expressions on the countenances of the patrolmen of the Richmond police force? They have been wearing it all day. Friday evening at the monthly meeting of the board of police com missioners the subject of increasing the salaries of the patrolmen, patrol driver - and v6eeoHd Serjeant JTietzold came up and after some discussion it was voted to increase the salaries of the patrolmen and patrol driver Liv elsberger from $60 to $70 per month and to raise the salary of Sergeant Betzold, the veteran and efficient night sergeant, from $63 to $75 per month. The salary increase goes into ef fect the first of May and on May 31 the policemen affected by the change will receive their first checks with the $10 increase. First Sergeant Mc Manus will still continue to receive $75 per month for his services and Chief Bailey will continue to collect his $1,200 per year. News is not Pleasing. The decision of the police board to boost the salaries of the police officers is not the best of news to the city officials. Mayor Schillinger, his cabi net and the city council do not favor this plan on account of the crimped condition of the municipal purse, which is not broken but badly bent. However, the power of the police board under the metropolitan law is supreme so far as the police depart ment is concerned and if the police commissioners rule that the patrol men receive increased salaries it is up to the city officials to obey the edict, even if the city hall has to be sold to meet the expense. The com missioners advanced the police offi cers salaries for the reason that de sirable men can not be secured or re tained on the force under the scale of wages which has been in effect for some time. Friday evening the resignation of Edward" Stein, appointed to the force about two weeks ago, was tendered to the commissioners and was accept ed. No appointment was made to fill the vacancy made by Mr. Stein's resignation. In View of the Proposed Tolc-do-St. Louis Through Line -The Situation Becomes of More Acute Nature. It will be two weeks Monday tlnrf council decided on the North. Twenty third street route, as the one over which the traction company should op erate its freight cars through the city. Up to this time not a word has becu heard from the officials of the com pany other than the route selected wa undesirable, and that the company would not operate its freight cars on Twenty-third street. "It's. not up to the city to break the silence," say. President Merrill, of the board, City Attorney Study and other city officials. It is not known what the exact objections the company offi cials have to the Twenty-third street route, for they have volunteered no statement. What course the company' will pursue is also a matter of doubt but the city Is not worrying. It has stated its terms and the company must, come to them or get nothing. Situation Now Acute. Now that a through traction sysrem from Toledo to St. Louis has been pro posed by President Hugh McGowan. the local situation becomes an acute one to the officials of the system, as the new line runs , through this city. Through freight service between the. two terminal points of the system i planned and the only hindrance in niacins this freicht service In opera tion is the act of the Richmond city council In declaring that no traction freight cars shall be run through this city, unless the, cars ar operated Jn the north end-tjf" the city Tia North Twenty-third street. ' Will Company Eat Crow? It is humiliating to a corporation, whose combined wealth runs way Int the millions, that it should be blocked and checkmated by ten councilmen of a small Indiana city and this unique spectacle is being watched with the keenest interest by traction and rail road people all over the country. The Question asked is. "Will the McGowan system eat crow and come to the term- of the city of Richmond?" It is the general impression that the company will obey the edict of the local coun cil or change its plans so that Rich mond will not be reached by the lines of the system, which is hardly proba ble, as it would mean the abandonment of the Indiana &, Eastern and the Day ton & Westerm "Are the local shippers becoming im patient over the continued delay in re suming traction freight service Pres ident Merrill was asked. "We have -not received a kick from any of the shippers and we are assured that they are living up to their agree ment to stand back of the city until the traction com pa ny meets Its terms." Mr. Merrill replied. HEEDS PROTRACTED REST Governor Hanly Not Able to Stay at his Office. Indianapolis, Ind..
