PAGK TnilEE. TELLS WHY ICE TRUST IS BETTER THAN COMPETITION Claimed That Neither of the Local Companies Made Money While Rates Were Being Slaughtered in Past. NO LIKELIHOOD OF AN EMPLOYES' COMPANY. This Idea Is Scouted by Ice "Magnate" Natural Ice Crops Have Been Short for Several Seasons. "It was a case of necessity. Cut throat methods that had been resorted to had mined the business. There was no use carrying them on any lung er and all of us came to realize this. Such competition was bringing ruin to both plants rapidly and in the sea son of last year about $s,000 was lost by the two concerns. We had to et together and proceed upon the policy of live and let live and better live to gether." In this manner one of the local ice dealers explained the forma tion of the local "trust", thai will con trol the ice trade, in this city during the approaching season and so long 1 hereafter as the Independent and Union companies are the only com petltors. No Independent Company. In most vehement terms, branding it as absurd, ridiculous and senseless, the dealer stated the report that em ployes of the two companies intend to organize! an independent co-operative company is the result of imag ination. ""Why. who is there that could do that?" he asked. "Do you suppose if any employes had enough capital to establish an ice plant they would be working for somebody else? It takes about $-10,000 right on the start to put up an ice plant and start into the business. In the face of fcuch competition as the two other plants could provide, it would be the height of folly to contemplate such a thing, as a third company formed among employes. Why it really seems laughable to me." Nothing in Competition. The speaker argued there is nothing to be gained by fierce competition of the kind that has been in force in this city for a few years past. It was Mild the plants have been losing money regularly and it was agreed to consolidate for operating purposes solely as a business move and not with the intention of forming a trust and boosting prices. It was claimed the price at which ice has been sold In Richmond was fafr below the average in. other cities of the vicinity The Union and Independent com panies have reorganized along lines that are even closer drawn than those which bound the three companies, which formerly were combined under the term "Ice Delivery Company." One of the three companies has been bought out. by the Independent com pany and there are now but two in the local field. It has been agreed that possession of the delivery stock shall be mutual. The prices shall be one Ktid the same. Owing to the distance between the plants, it will bo neces sary to maintain two bams. The manufactured product, is to be pooled. One of the new departures will be the establishment of a down town of fice. It will be located in the Hoover building on South Ninth street. An office force will be retained and till business attended to from this head quarters. Natural Ice Short. There was less than a half crop of natural ice last winter and the manu factured product will b depended up on to meet the trade of the private consumer. Short crops have been regular for three years and last sea son the Union company was compelled to ship large quantities of ice to the city in order to meet the demand. BARNARD VIOLATES ALL POLITICAL ETIQUETTE BY ACT (Continued From Page One) seen that he has no chance for the hon or they will then go over to the stmnc cst candidate, unless that, candidate happens to be Barnard. They wiii oppose him to the bitter end. The Barnard candidates also state that they will support Mr. Campbeii while he lias a show for the nomination, but if lie fails to make a showing they - ill go over to Barnard. Are Now Jubilant. The Campbell supporters and anti fiarnaxd men are very jubilant over the growing opposition to Judge Bar nard's candidacy. A great deal of in dignation is expressed ou all sides to day over Judge Barnard's appearance la Richmond today. It is freely pre dicted that Judge Barnard's presence will tend more than anything else to assist in the defeat of his various can didates for ward delegates and will in tensify the growing feeling of antag onism against his candidacy in Rich mond and Wayne county.

COMMISSIONERS TO ACT. WILL FORWARD APPEAL TO THE COUNTY COUNCIL FOR A SAL ARY APPROPRIATION FOR SUCH A GUARDIAN. Ill response to constant. y recurring requests and in answer to the call of humanity, the county commissioners will petition the county council for an appropriation to pay for a woman guard for the insane at the Home for the Friendless Women. The county provides no accommodation for female prisoners at the county jail, nor for women of unsound mind, who must await, admittance to the state hospital. The only place where such unfortu nates may be cared for is at the wo men's home. This is not a county in stitution .however, although the law demands that insane prisoners await ing admittance to the hospital must be under the custody of the sheriff of the county. The commissioners will ask that the coifnty council appropriate a fund suf ficient to pay the guardian SI per day and also to defray the cost of her board at the home. It is stipulated tuat the management of the home ' shall, in consideration of the county ; placing the guard there, provide her i with lodging and other sufficient ac- i commodations, such as may be neces sary.

STERLING BOLIN AND AMBROSE PETRY WILL ALSO BE GIVEN A HEARING IN WAYNE CIRCUIT COURT IN NEXT TWO WEEKS. Three criminal cases hav been set for trial in the Wayne circuit 'court that are of more than ordinary Inter est. The case of the State vs. S. M. Lease has been set for trial tomorrow, that of the State vs. Ambrose Petry for Friday and that of the State vs. Sterling Bolin for Thursday of next week. Lease is accused of the theft, of about $400 from John 1. Wills, his em ployer at Cambridge City. After se curing the money, Lease tied west and was captured at St. Ixnris upon infor mation furnished the police of that city by Supt. Bailey. As an unusual phase in connection with the case, Least; will be defended by the same at torneys who represent his former em ployer. Wills, in the latter's divorce litigation now pending in the Henry circuit, court. There is some probability Petry will not be prosecuted. The soundness of the man's mentality is nuestioned. It has been represented to the prosecutor there is strong evidence to prove that Petry shows symptoms of a weak mind at infrequent intervals. The man is charged with grand larceny and for gery. Sterling Bolin -is the negro, who as saulted and so brutally cut Arch Hind man, the well known ' Hagerstown ho tel proprietor and auctioneer. Hind man has almost entirely recovered from his injuries. Bo! in will be charged with assault and battery with intent to kill. The mob that arose and threatened to lynch Bolin follow ing his assault upon Hindman, marks an epoch in the history of Hagerstown. NATIVE ESKIMO CLOTHES." Light In Weight, Soft In Texture and Absolutely Cold Proof. When winter set in and Eskimos be tran to visit the ship, it soon became apparent that they were much better clothed to meet the cold than were the white explorers, though the latter had everything that money could command in the way of "an approved arctic out fit." The Finnish boots, or "Finnskor," used by Nanseu and other arctic ex plorers, were excelled both in light ness and warmth by the native boots. A single fur coat of deerskin made in Norway weighed as much as an entire Eskimo suit of outer and inner gar ments, with boots and mittens includ ed, and was stiff as wet sailcloth, white ihe native garments were soft as a kid glove. A well made Eskimo 6tilt socks and boots, underwear, trousers and coat with hood weighs ten or eleven pounds, about as much as your spring suit, and in it you could Bit comfortably on a block of snow, with your back to the wind, fishing through a hole in the ice, with a temperature of 50 degrees F., as the writer has repeatedly done, feeling cold nowhere but on the face, the only part of the body that must bo left uncovered. We found a deerskin shirt with the hair turned in warmer, lighter and more comfortable than woolen, and a cap unnecessary when the hooded coat is worn. There was not an item of the arctic clothing that was not advantageously replaced by garments bought from the Eskimos. Xo one wore garments of European make if he was able to get his hands on the Eskimo equivalent. V. Stefans son in Harper's Magazine. SPEAKING PLAINLY. The Judge's Request and the Counsel's Prompt Response. A young and afterward distinguished attorney from an up country district of New York state was arguing his first appeal in the old general term of the supreme court. He had been in many legal scrimmages in justices courts at home, but had never stood in the awesome presence of five sedate and learned judges of the supreme court in general term assembled. His em barrassment was great. He repeated himself and misplaced his words so often that it was quite evident that he must soon be routed by his own con fusion unless something should occur to break the speli. Finally, and just as he was floundering the deepest in a chaotic jumble of language and ideas, the presiding judge interrupted with the following remark: "Mr. Sruithers. I believe it will be a groat relief to yourself and to the court if you wiil address us in the same free and informal way that you doubtles? use ia addressing your local justice of the peace." "Well, then." replied Smithers. "I wish that while I am busy alleviating your honor's dense Ignorance of the law you would keep your confounded mouth shut:' The court laughed heartily and waved for him to proceed, lie grew eloquent and won his case iu the midst of hearty applause.

Raymond Hitchcock, the actor, indicted on six charges of felony, following the ap pearance of three little girls before the grand jury, was acquitted by a jury on the order of Judge Blanchard here today. Flora Whiston broke down and said she had perjured her self before the grand jury. The ver dict exonerates the defendant. Water pipes of terra cotta were used in Crete forty centuries ago. Those supplying drinking water consisted of a series of subcorneal tubes socketed into each other with collars and "stop ridges" so constructed as to give tho water a shooting motion, thus pre venting accumulation of sediment. LUCK AND CHANCE ALIENS TO LIFE It Is Real Facts Which Prevail Over the Land, Says Graham. ADDRESSES THE STUDENTS. MINISTER TELLS THEM TO ASPIRE HIGH AND BEYOND THINGS THAT ARE OF THE COM MON UNIVERSE. The Rev. T. J. Graham of the First Presbyterian church gave a very inter esting talk to the students of the high school at the chapel exercises this morning. The talk by Mr. Graham dealt with chance and fate and the destiny of life. In part Rev. Graham said: "The swastika, the emblem that is stamped on the preshistoric ages and of older times thought to be an omen of good luck and good will. It dates far back iuto the ancient times and it cannot be traced to the originators. It is common in the old world and with the Indians of America, before the time of the white man. "Not until recently have the ladies of the country adopted this as an or nament. As for their reason is not known unless for its beauty and by wearing it it brings good luck. "Students the lesson in the Swastika is the chance in life. You think that you will get along and just drift with the tide and manage to get along some how. You need to guard against your dreams and your imagination. Have little to do with fate and chance. It is the real facts that prevail over the land and not dreams and fate. "Say that you will make something of your self and form your habits to be pure, true, and be in the light and not have to walk in the shadow but. walk in the sunshine. Trust in God is the factor of most importance to you students. Aspire higher and be beyond things that are of the common universe. ROBINSON PREPARED EOR SPECIAL FIN-DING All Matter Necessary in Clif ford Case Furnished. Judge Robinson of the Spencer cir cuit court has been furnished with all matter necessary to prepare a special I finding in the case of Freemonth Clif-1 ; ford vs. the City of Richmond. If ' Judge Robinson agrees with the re-' quests of Mr. Study and decides as the city attorney has represented the case. I everything will be satisfactory accord- ing to the statement made by Mr. Stu ! dy this morning. ARGUMENT FOR PERMANENTINJUNCTION Traction Line Case in Federal Court. Argument in the case of the Terre Haute. Indianapolis & Eastern Trac tion company vs. the City of Rich mond, will be heard in the federal court at Indianapolis, Wednesday. The city will be represented by T. J. Study, city attorney, Gavin and Gavin, Ind ianapolis attorneys, and Wilfred Jes sup, associate counsel.
