Members of Local Post T. P.
A. Desirous That Difficul
ties Be Adjusted.
The committee on lnter
urban freight service ap
pointed by President Le
bo, consists of the follow
ing named gentlemen: II.
C. Starr, chairman, Adam
H. Bartel, W. S3. Clendenin, .1. Y.
Poundstone, W. II. Quigg and M. L.
Hasty. It la to be hoped that this
committee can accomplish the desir
ed result of getting the difficulties ex
isting between the city and the i Tac
tion company adjusted, so that immed
iate freight service can be given to the
suffering shippers of Richmond.
This it Is believed, could be accom
plished without jeopardizing the posi
tion taken by the city in the matter,
and without inconvenience to tho in
terurban Interests. The membership
of Post C. comprised as it Is of trav
eling men, manufacturers and jobbers,
all of which are large patrons or the
interurban company, are very anxious
that the difficulties be settled satis
factorily and if it is necessary to await
the decision of the court they hope
that temporary arrangements can be
made to resume the freight service.
It would appear that it is possible
that a great many people do not real
ize the importance of interurban
freight facilities. Steam road deliver
ies are slow in comparison to Interur
ban, und in Indiana the following
cities can be reached outside of points
between Richmond and Indianapolis
by interurban at steam road rates,
with next day deliveries: Edinburg,
Columbus, Seymour, Flat Rock, Shel
byvllle, Greensburg, Rushville, Con
nersvllle, Wabash, Marlon, Summit
ville, Falrmount, Alexandria, Ander
son, Daleville, Chesterfield, Muncie,
Kokomo, Arcadia, Tipton, Noblesville,
Danville, Green Castle, Brazil, Craw
fordsville, Martinsville, Bloomington,
There are a number of other towns
that it is impossible to reach by .Ueam
roads, that can be reached by Interur
ban at steam road rates, with next
day delivery of goods. f
If Richmond had freight service ov
er the Dayton and Western, shippers
would be able to reach all point be
tween Richmond and Dayton, all
points from Dayton to Toledo, from
Dayton to Xeniar from Dayton to
Springfield and from Dayton to Cin
cinnati, with next day deliveries at
steam road rates. In fact a little bit
of Investigation discloses that inter
urban freight facilities are a wonder
ful advantage to shippers who make
local shipments that require quick de
liveries. Every member of Post C seems to
have had a pleasant time at the smok
er last Saturday evening and no re
grets are heard that the Post decided
to give a second smoker.
The music given by the combined
orchestra of the high school and Oar
field was certainly fine and did great
credit to 4he youig gentlemen, who so
kindly lent their efforts on this occa
sion, and Post C certainly appreciates
what they did and a sincere vote of
thanks will be extended to them at
the next meeting.
The luncheon as usual did credit
to that committee and the speeches
given by Mr. Freeman, Mr. Goidon
and Mr. Huey were thoroughly ap
preciated and well taken.
We believe that these affairs more
than ever demonstrated the advantage
of every eligible person in our city
becoming a member of the Travelers
Protective association. The work that
the T. P. A. has accomplished along
various lines Is greatly to be com
mended ajid of vast importance to the
people in the community in which
they are located. The protection that
the insurance feature offers is a mat
ter of consideration and the social side
of T. P. A. life is another important
feature that should not be overlooked.
Any person, whose business is of such
a nature as to permit them to be a
member of this grand organization
ought to become one.
It is currently reported that a few
of the young "old boys" became so
interested last Saturday night that
they almost forgot to go home, and
some explanation to the other side
of the house was necessary in ord?r to
have it understood why T. P. A. smok
ers were so long drawn out.
Ross Bowman is the proud possess
or of a pair of "burnsides." Far he
it from us to in any way eriiisizo
Ross efforts, as we think the courage
he displays is to be commended, but
we sincerely trust that time w ill unite
his efforts in such a way as to not do
tract anything from his good looks.
A little "fertilizer" was suggested but
that is merely a matter of opinion.
Every member of Post C should con
stitute himself a committee of one to
try and get one new member before
the 10th of this month.
Horace C. Starr. D. L. Mather, T. C.
Harrington and several other mem
bers of Post C attended the republican
convention at Indianapolis last week.
J. M. Lewis was in Indianapolis Fri
day, making a visit to his home.
It is the desir? of the membership
'that a good delegation go to West Ba
den. It is an excellent trip and one
that you will thoroughly enjoy. Please
make up your mind to accompany the
post to the state convention and re
port the fact to Marcus Hasty, secre
tary. V. H. Q.

Williams Grows Funny Over
Washington, April 4. John Sharp
Williams, the Democratic House lead
er of the filibusters, after declaring
that when the Republicans were asked
to pass measures "demanded every
where," they cried. "After Election."
He said it reminded him of the follow
ing verse:
When I asked my girl to marry me,
she said:
"Go to father."
She knew that I knew her father was
She knew that I knew what a life he
had led;
She knew that I knew what she meant
when she said:
"Go to father."
Chicago, 111., April 4. High prices
for beefsteaks and pork chops have fol
lowed the high prices for corn and hay
which flooded the live stock market
here and elsewhere through January j
and February. The farmers received
high prices for grain and low prices for
cattle and hogs, and now the house
holder is paying higher and higher
prices for his meats. This, curiously
enough, applies to hams cut from low
priced hogs. The receipts of livestock
now have become so light that the rise
in fresh meat is explained. The cat
tle which should have been kept back
and fattened on good feed for April
and May consumption came here in
January. This condition probably will
'.ontinue and prices will go higher yet
before the movement of range cattle
commences, or until present stocks of
half fed steers in Iowa, Illinois and
Kansas are fattened and sent here. ,
This spring there will be an advance
in rents, milk and meats to keep city 1
people from East street, but the hen
is doing nobly to provide and eggs are I
down to the lowest mark known in
many months.

Washington. April 4. The Presi
dent's reeoiumenIa;ion in his recent
special message that Congress at this
session authorize the opening of post
al savings banks is receiving the con
sideration of the Republican leaders
in the two houses. Early in the ses
sion a decision was reached not to
consider ajiy of the postal savings
bank bills at this time, but the new
appeal of the President, taken in con
nection with other arguments in fav
or of legislation which have been put
forth, has induced the leaders to con
sider whether, after all, it might not
be wise to take up the subject. With
in the last few days this argument
in favor of postal savings banks has
been advanced. It is now certain
that if any financial legislation goes
through Congress it will be represent

Record Broken in the Birth of

When Evander Perry Wall, king of
the dudes for twelve years and really
the most inconspicuous man about
town, because he was homely of face
and a very bad dresser, besides being
rather short and blotchy, undertook to
reintroduce shoe buckles he made his
first big failure as the sartorial dic
tator of our "jeuuesse doree." I think
it was poor Al Claggett who said:
"Why, Berry, you make a fool of your
self. Shoe buckles go with long stock
ings and knee pants. You can't wear
'em with socks and trousers. They In
terfere with the set of the trousers
around the feet. Then, of course,
you've got to have a low cruartered
shoe. Cut It out, Berry, cut It out."

Twelve Jurors Render a Verdict.
With This Mew York Girl, Then
Tried to Suicide.
Chicago, April 4. Twelve jurors, in
cluding three bachelors, have decided
in Judge Newcomer's court that $50
hats are excluded from the necessary
household expenses for which a hus
band in moderate circumstances legal
ly may be held liable when incurred
by his wife without his approval.
New York, April 4. "Why won't the
men in New York let a girl be good
when she wants to? No matter how
hard she tries to avoid them they make
life unbearable." said Miss Genevieve
D. Jones of 441 Manhattan avenue,
who attempted to commit suicide by
drinking poison.
But for the fact that . Miss Jones's
brother-in-law, Richard Golding, a pa-
j trolman attached to the Thirty-seventh
street station was present when she
swallowed the drug, It would have
poved fatal.
Wearlnsr Glnnaes.
Wearing glasses need not be perma
nent. If the first hint of derangement
in the' eyes is heeded a short time
spent under the direction of an oculist
will safely tide over the difficulty. It
is most restful to close the eyes fre
quently for a few minutes. This rest
does them great good. Particularly
should this be done in trains and street
cars. Many a headache and smarting
pain may thus be saved. Traveling in
public conveyances is exceedingly
hard on the eyes, even for those that
are strong and perfect The gaze
should be confined to the interior of the
car. Looking out of the windows to
the rapidly changing scenery is a
great strain. Philadelphia Ledger.
