There was an eruption in the peace find- quiet of north end colored circles "Monday afternoon, which resulted in 2losco0 Clayborne- facing Judge Con verse in the city court. After an hour's delay waiting for the prosecut ing witness, Mrs. Carrie Coleman, to appear in court, Judge Converse dis missed the case. He also stated that n the future when people swore out affidavits for the arrest of the objects of their vengeance and then, without reasonable excuse, failed to put in an appearance to prosecute the case when called for hearing, would meet the dis pleasure of the court, either by having the case dismissed or being-Tined for Contempt. Police officers state that Clayborne Monday told Coleman to keep his eye cm Mrs. Coleman. "When the irate woman learned that Clayborne had been talking against her, she sallied forth, armed with a pair of shears, to inaugurate a little scene in which Clay borne was billed to star in the title role. She met "Roscoe while he was riding down the street on a dray horse. Mrs. Coleman promptly gave battle Hnd the jabs of her shears in the calf of his leg caused Roscoe to alight from his charger and strike Mrs. Coleman in the Jaw. The police state that Oarborne, after striking Mrs. Cole man, became the vortex of a miniature street fight, Roscoe being beset on all rides by friends of the assaulted wo man. He finally made his escape and Mrs. Coleman then swore out a war rant for his arrest. How the Vote Stands WOMAN TEACHER. Miss Elizabeth Sands.

Secretary Wil son believes there is room for im provement in Indiana inspection and the whole service will be discussed in that all questions may be settled. Although it Is not known definitely it is probable that the placing of -additional men in Richmond will receive attention at the hands of the confer ence, and the situation here, which is one of the most unique in the state, will be thoroughly thrashed over. Thomas Mcdirr, one of the best known residents of this city, . was found Monday afternoon on Washing ton street, Indianapolis, in such a feeble condition that he was unable to walk and, at first, unable to give much account of himself. He was taken to police headquarters until his case could be Investigated. While In the cell Mr. McGirr, who is over 80 years of age, fell and cut the hack of his head. After he had been re vived and attended by a physician, Mr. McGirr stated that he was v.'slt ing a neice, Rebecca Hanson, and that his home is'iu Richmond. Formerly Well to Do. Mr. McGirr was at one time a well to do resident of this city but in late years he has met with reverses and prior to his leaving the city last Friday to make his homo with a nephew in Indianapolis, he was In destitute circumstances. Recently Mr. McGirr had to give up his home on North D street to meet his debts and since that time he has lived on the charity of friends. B. A. Kennepohl a few days ago appeared in police headquarters and told of the condition of the old man and recommended that the authorities take some action in his case. Mr. Kennepohl stated that Mr. McGirr came into his restaurant one morning and that it was learned the old man had had nothing to eat so Mr. Kennepohl made arrangements to board Mr. McGirr at the restaur ant. Aided by J.j B. Dougan. John B. Dougan became interested in the pitiful case of Mr. McGirr and fwhen his nephew notified local fr!ends that he would care for him at his home in Indianapolis, Mr. Dougan purchased Mr. McGirr a new outfit of clothing and sent him to the home of his nephew-. It Is thought that Mr. McGirr while wandering about j Indianapolis fell a victim to his in ! flrmities but that by this time he is once more at the home of his nephew. During the years 1S76-1877 Mr. Mc Girr served a3 councilman from the second ward and after that trme he j served for a number of years as con stable in Justice Lyle's court.

C09.30 JlS.479.l2 In the young men's squad contest the interest seems to Intensify. Bartel takes first place from Dill again but by very close . margin. All of tho squads hnve taken a spurt and It would not be surprising that these young mn do not reach 20,000 before the campaign Is over. An Interesting Gathering. One of the most interesting gain erings of the Y. M. C. A. was that of Monday night when the young men reported on the house to house effort. Af one young man expressed It, it was like an election night waiting for tho returns, and then beginning to como In from nine o'clock until after ten with their reports. The experiences cf these young men as related by them was Interesting, In some cases amus ing, and in all cases encouraging. Contrary to the expectation of Rome, jouns men came in wun neatnlng faces and happy hearts, mostly re porting the kindest and the most courteous treatment in the homes vis ited. ; t . The young men engaged fn ihTa work are fast learning things about the city of Richmond that they had never known before. They are learn, ing of the apparent lack of interest In the true welfare of the young men of the city on the cart of thoso whn are abundantly able to hel :hl move ment to success. On tho other hand they are getting heart touching les sons of sacrifice from the toilers in the cottage and the homes of the great middle class, who are always the backbone of any luoeuient for progress. ' Surely the work of these young men and the attitude of people in modern circumctences In the town, has not only demonstrated the need, but ata the anxiety of the people of Rif h mond for the Youug Men's Christian association. The total reported by the young men In Monday night's effort on the house to house canvass, was $809.25. The report was most encouraslnr In view of the fact that the young men had scarcely touched their territory. With one week left to work and ov er $10,000 to get, In order to secure Mr. Reld e offer, a sacrifice must be- come more general. This amount of money cannot be raised among the poorer classes who have been giving out of their needs. The time has come for those who have been blessed with plenty to get under this burden and do much better than they have. REGOLATIOIMS PROPER President Finley Says Rail roads Are Not Opposed.
