HE WANTS CHAIRMANSHIP OF IN DIANA DELEGATION AND IN DIANA'S PLACE ON RESOLU TIONS COMMITTEE. Indianapolis. Ind.. May 1. The Indi ana delegates to the Republican Na tional convention are. meeting here to day to perfect an organization and to arrange fo rtheir part, in the Fairbanks movement. Several of them arrived here last, night. The ni-eeting ' is informal, but there may be some contests over the election of members of the various convention committees. It is reported that Sena- ana delegation. Party leaders said that both places cannot be ghen to him. as it has been customary to pass the good things around as far as possi ble among the delegates. It is likely however, that. Senator Beveridge, be cause he is the senior senator from In diana, can have his choice of positions. It was said that if he is elected chair man. Senator Hemenway may become the member of the committee on reso lutions. What's a Widower? Is a widower a married or a single j man?

That is one of the Certainly, on the other hand, no mat- ter what "the man once was, he is sin - g!e now. That is th other answer. Thus in nil match games of siugle against married men-games of hock- ey, football, baseball, cricket the poor widower is toss-l fmm one side to the nher like a shuttlecock.

So Says Pennsylvania Real Estate Agent Before the Tax Commissioners. THE EQUIPMENT IS IDLE. LAST YEAR HE SAYS WAS A BAN NER RAILROAD YEAR UP UNTIL OCTOBER, BUT DECREASE HAS BEEN SHOWN SINCE THAT TIME According to the representation of G. C. L'npihart. real estate agent for the Pennsylvania lines west of Pitts burg, made before the state board of tax commissioners, the business of the Richmond division decreased 2t;t per cent, during li0T. The Cambridge City branch of the Imisville division was credited with an increase of t::.K. per cent. lie declared business has been dull for the last four months and (luring that time ::T per cent, of the equip ment of the company has been idle. Last year was said to have been the banner railroad year up until October, but since that time business has been had and it has continued to be bad. Mr. Sims, chairman of the hoard, questioned the value at which the cars of the company were reported to the board. "I see you return your box cars at $ltiO each and your stock cars at $110 each." said the chairman. "Isn't it a fact that the Pennsylvania company never uses a car that i worth less than $1."0, Aren't the cars 'scrapped' when they reach that val ue?" Mr. l'npihart was not sure about this. Ifo was merely taking the re port of the auditor for it. lie said, al though he thought that some of the cheap cars might bo ;,n!d to the small or roads instead of being "scrapped." A Queer Mania.
