The letter in part reads: "I cannot help but feel that it is no more than the most hindering element in tho construction of the new buildings and as the contracts call for their comple tion before August, and the work is only about one third completed, they probably have room to be disgruntl- j with you and tell you fully how I t , J$ . f Q is,i.

I believe you were right and justified in doing what you did, and you are, now, , in my estimation, more than a hero. "I wrote to Florence ,but she' seems bitter toward me yet. I asked her to let me have $100 if she could spare it and she answered that she has no money and so I must appeal to you. Perhaps I was wrong in coming here, but my parents are responsible for that. I want money to stay here un til I can get a position and be inde pendent of everybody else. Won't you help me? If you fail me I don't know what I will do. I would rather kill myself than have to go to certain persons in this city for help and I won't write home for money. I feel like ending it all."' Yours, HOWARD NESBIT, Comments on Verdict. Harry Thaw, his wife and lawj-ers comment on, the outcome of the trial as follows: HARRY THAW I could hardly ex pect anything else in view of the ev ents of the last few days. I believe every man on the jury possessing av erage intelligence, except possibly Mr. Bolton, comprehended the weight of evidence and balanced if for acquit tal. MRS. EVELYN THAW I can't un oerstand. I don t see why they couldnt have come to some agree ment. They ought to have acquitted him on the evidence.

The Hoosier Drill company is about to enter on the period of its greatest prosperity as the output of the factory will be doubled and an Increase of sev eral hundred men will be made in the present force to properly care for the huge business. ' The new foundry buildingIs prac tieally. compicfe and . will . be turned over for that purpose in the course of the next ten days or two weeks. Op erations will begin in It then with a double force of moulders over those which have been working in the old foundry. About ninety moulders will be employed In the new addition and the plant will now be able to care for this end of its business. This origi nating department has always been so small that it could not properly care for the output of the plant, and has neccesitated the company buying its castings from other manufacturing firms of this city and out of town con cerns. With the increased, foundry capacity, however, the Hoosier Drill will not be required to make purchas es of this nature. Where the old cupola in the old foundry room turned out about 8 to 10 tons of molten metal ! per hour, the new one will turn out 18 to 20 tons per hour. In order to furnish the power for the new and powerful blower, which will be install ed in the new foundry room, a fifty horse power electric engine will be placed, the power for which will be furnished by the municipal plant. Old Structures Will Go. Weather permitting, in two weeks time the building operations will have continued to such a degree that the old smithing department, foundry, grinding and cleaning rooms can be torn down and operations will be car- Building Committee of the Board of Trustees in Ses sion on Friday.

At the meeting of the building com mittee of the Earlham board of trus tees, held Friday at the college, plans for the new heating plant for all the college buildings were discussed, but no definite arrangements were made. The plans of Architect W. S. Kauf mann, which call for an outlay of be tween ?J.,X0 and $30,000 for both, a complete lighting and ' heating plant, were considered, but the committee de cided to; postpone; the, matter until It could be ascertained just how much it would cost and how much they could raise for the purpose. That the col lege needs a new heating plant, goes without saying, as the present accom modations are very crude and unsat isfactory. Trouble has always result ed in heating Earlham and Lindlcy halls, and it Is the plan of the commit tee to erect such a modern plant that It will meet the needs of the college for years to come. Plant for All Buildings. According to this plan, the new plant will be located to the rear of Earlham hall and will furnish heat for Perry, Earlham and Lindley halls in addition to the new boys dormitory and the library. The gymnasium will also be heated by the plamt. After a time a complete electric lighting plant will be installed in the build ing occupied by the heating plant. This however, will come later, when more funds than are at present in sight, can be raised. With the construction of j the new heating plant and the newi dormitory and library, Earlham col-J lege will have spent about SIOO.OOO on; new buildings. The committee also expressed its willingness to connect with the new west side sewer when it is completed. This will be a very easy matter as a branch will be run to this point. The Earlham authorities await the actio.i of the city in regard to the sewer proposition. FIRST TO SERVE ALL ITS READERS The Palladium and Sun-Telegram yesterday demonstrated the efficiency of its news service and mechanical equipment by serving all its readers with the Thaw jury's verdict FIRST. Twenty minutes after the first flash came over the wire that the Thaw jury had disagreed the Palladium and Sun Telegram carrier boys were receiving the regular evening edition of the paper to be served to all their subscribers. This too, in spite of the fact that the .entire first page was rearranged and three cuts of principals in the trial placed on it. The paper which the Palladium and Sun-Telegram put out was no slip shod extra to be served to a few people who hap pened to be down town. It was a complete evening edition well printed and well illustrated. For Completeness and Speed The Palladium and Sun Telegram Always. Richmond Is in the throes of one or the worst car shortages la the history of the city, according to the state ments of local manufacturers. The car shortage on the Pennsylvania ha affected local manufacturing concerns to suck an extent that they have lost thousands of dollars during the past few weeks, because they could not t-e-cure enough car from the railroads tJ ship their products on schedule time. Special orders have flooded the local seeding machine and other manufac turing concerns In the city, and after the products have been completed and ready for shipment on the Kpeclfled date, given in tho contracts, the rail roads have not been able to furnish cars for transportation,- hence the or ders have had to be cancelled. It ia . . 1 ii.. 1 HI. r 1 f (Manually iDipinsiui lur iifuni vuu cerns to secure enough cars for th transportation of their products and as a result they have been compelled to cancel hundreds of common orders In the past two 111 on t lib. -, How One Concern Lott. One local concern, which handles farm machinery, has been .severely handicapped. The seeding season In the north and northwest ia on and dur ing the warm weather of March tho farmers in those regions became anx ious to secure their machinery that they might plant early. Orders came to the local manufacturing concern In hundreds. The machinery was ready, but the company could not secure cars to ship It. When this prediciment fac ed the manufacturers they cancelled thousands of dollars worth of orders. Other planters who contemplated buy ing of the local concern turned their eyes In other directions when they found that their wants could not bo accommodated. The present cold weather has stopped the orders for spring seeding machinery to a consid erable extent but nevertheless the lo cal company, has had to turn down or der after order through its inability to ship and consequently at a loss which amounts well up in the thousand of dollars. The whole loss Is blamed to the railroads for bad they given tho proper accommodations to the local concern, or had. been In position to do so, the local company would not have been required to cancel such a groat number of orders. Another manufacturer In speaking of the matter said "Sometimes we get cars, sometimes we don't, but the lat ter statement holds good the most of the timo." According to his state ment there has been no time in the past three months that his company has been able to secure enoucii cars to ship the output of the plant, and meet the orders which have come into the offices of the company. Freight Station Too Small. One manufacturer took exception tv . the smallness of the local Pennsyl vania freight station, saying tlrat whf.n j goods are delivered there the station j i3 so small that it can not bf handl j ed properly. So far as handlln? the j local freight Is concerned, he said, the condftSons are worse than nothing. Every load of freight going to the station, according to his statement, requires a much longer time to unload than It should. One local concern basis its gros loss this spring due to the car short age at $25,0w. This is the greatest however, while the other factories place their losses at from a few hun dred to several thousand dollars. The whole will run to about $50,000 or $73,000 fn Richmond alone. " Railroads Blame Shippers. The railroads claim that the ship pers are as much to blame as the railroads and state that they have figures to show that the greater per cent of delay fn the movement of cars throughout the west and In Richmond, Is due to the delinquency of shippers In loading and unloading cars. They also state that they cannot help them selves, owing to the gr-at commer cial development In the past two years. The Pennsylvania, now has about fifteen thousand cars of their own on other roads, which they can not bring back or Rcir. lxvaus-1'' taese ohr reads are . suffering th J.
