THE RICHMOND PAL LADIU31 AXD SUN-TEL.EGKA3I, HOXDAY, AUGUST 24, ltWS.
f AGE TWO. ENGLAND LIKES BRITT Clever Yankee Boxer Has Made Hit With the Brjtishers. ALSO LIKED IN FRANCE. Word comes from England that Jimmy Brltt Is just now the boxing Idol in England and France. His clev erness In the ring and gentlemanly manners out of It have done much to ward making him a big favorite. Lat est reports have It that James Edward will soon match with Johnny Sum mers, the wonderful British light weight, who has time and again ap peared In this country. Those who are under the impression that Britt is all In will no doubt be surprised to hear that he has taken a new lease on life. There Is no way in the world to successfully dope out the prize ring champions and has beens. At times when it looks like a fellow is going to have the biggest kind of a walkover he turns up as a loser, as was witnessed In the recent Cans-Nelson contest. Old Black Joe was tout ed long and loud as a sure winner over the Dane, and was as good as 2 to 1 In the betting, but Nelson gave him a good beating and won without much trouble. But the Dane In winning that fight only tangled up the dope worse than ever. It was regarded on all sides as a victory for Britt when Nelson and Britt hooked up the last time, yet Joe Gans made Jimmy look like a novice when they met. Then when Nelson fought Rudolph Unholz In Los Ange les the papers down there gave "Rudy" credit for a victory over Nel son, yet no decision was officially handed down. Unholz goes up against fighting Dick Hyland in New York, and he is given" the laugh for even claiming to be in the championship class. Now, Britt has come back again and Is fighting in good form in Eng land. Nelson has proved his super iority over Gans, while poor old Un ! holz is having a hard time getting on , a fight because of his poor showing against Hyland. CONSCIENCE OF ' AMERICA IS NOW BEING AWAKENED (Continued From rage One.) to hunt up some fat, greasy saloon keeper and get his support. He does not do that today. It used to be said that the wine room laws could not be enforced, but they are. In Missouri the Sunday spree is a thing of the past. The butcher and the baker are prospering. Many a wife and many a mother have written to me that she now has something to eat where she once was hungry. One such letter is worth more than the praise of all the liquor dealers. For Law Enforcement. "The public man is pursuing his true course. Many times he looks out at u perfect wall of frowning humanity. But in that crowd he will now and then see a smiling face that will help him on to duty. "All laws should be enforced. If there Is a bad law the remedy is to re peal it, not disregard it. The corpo ration magnate looks at the laws cur tailing his corporation as tyrannical. The housebreaker thinks that the law which restrains him is an interference with his business. It is my experience that any law looks blue to the man that it represses. , He cries put for lib erty. There was once in America the Idnd of liberty he wants, but that was before Columbus sailed. It was not liberty, but barbarism'; it was not lib erty, but license. "There is a demand that the man who assumes office enforce the law. He has no more right to disregard his trust than another man has to give bribes. There is an embezzlement of power as well as of money. And the day will come when the embezzlement of power will be as great an offense as the embezzlement of money. Golden Age Before Us. The world is growing better. Poets have sung of a golden age which lies somewhere in the past. But I believe that the golden age lies before us. The time will come when the golden rule is in truth obeyed. The ideal of the young man has come to be that it is better to.be right and stay right than to be rich and stay rich. But do not understand me to say that the millenium has arrived. There never will be a time when the good people of the nation can rest on their oars. If conditions that existed a few years ago had grown constantly worse, man might well have prophesied the end of the republic. We were going the way that all republics have gone. But the change has come; the skies are brightening; the public conscience has awakened. "The men who control vast mil lions must still be suppressed. It is much better that all men be prosper ous than tliat a few be gorged with wealth. We have no right to object ARE-! YOU ''GETTING YOUR SHARE? IF NOT, WAKE UP. Affairs of the Frank Mosbaugh, county recorder, and an enthusiastic Cambridge City fan, in speaking of the terrible mas sacre, perpetrated on the Grays yester day by the Connersvillo sluggerc, says that it is better to have been beatca 21 to 1 than to have been trimmed 23 to 0. Even the darkest clouds have a Email lining of silver. Marksmen from all over this section of the state are expected to attend the shoot held at Athletic park on Septem ber i and 1. Invitations for the big event will be issued this week. Each lay there will be twelve events com bining a total of 200 targets. The race in the American association is being watched with the keenest in terest by local fans. The four lead ers, Indianapolis, Louisville, Toledo and Columbus, cannot afford to lose a game, and as a result, all are going at top speed. Each one of the leaders won yesterday. With the addition of Heidrick, St. Louis Americans now have one of the best outfields in the country. The other two gardeners are Stone and to legitimate wealth but we do have the privilege of objecting to the taint ed methods by which some men get millions. "The greatest difficulty in the way of reform today is the indifference of the private individual. Go into any town and you will find that the good people are in the majority. But a dozen lawbreakers can make more noise than a hundred good men. They gather around the officers of the city and by their clamor influence them. "How often does a city awaken and elect a reform ticket. Go back six months heice and the reform has van ished. Why? Because the good people have not encouraged the officers. The lawless tell the officials that though the good people rise up once in awhile they must depend upon the liberal element for continued support. Too often these officials are led on until they find themselves lost in the quick sands of dishonor. It is much the eas iest to serve the lawless than the law abiding. I hope the time will come when the good people will make the officers understand that it is good pol itics to serve the law-abiding. It makes no difference whether the man who violates the law is a democrat or republican. He ought to be hunted out and punished. After all he is but a democrat or republican but criminal. "This public conscience is marching on and on, changing the ideas of men. Unless it continues its way this repub lic will be like a building erected without mortar. We may build our towers to the heavens but they will fall. The greatness of an empire does not depend upon the length of its lands nor the strength of its bat tleships, but the conscience of its peo ple. Let us enforce the laws, meet the problems as they come before us, keep ever at the front the ideals of a pure conscience, and the life of the na tion will be perpetuated forever." WAS MISSOURI DAY. Mrs. Lake, St. Louis Woman, Made a Great Speech. It was surely Missouri's day at the Chautauqua yesterday. In the after noon Mrs. Leorna lake, of St. Louis, occupied the platform and the speech she delivered was evidently intended as an awakening. Mrs. Lake was in tended by nature to be an orator. A true daughter of Erin, with a voice of large volume and great carrying power she did not mince matters when she mounted the platform. For an hour and a half she spoke on the subject of the "Divine Rights of the Child." She brought before her tribunal the busi ness men, the professional men. the newspapers, the young men, the young women, the wives ana the motners or: Richmond. And through it all the au dience laughed good naturedly at her ; wit and applauded her burning state ments. Hers was a plea for new ideals and new standards in the nation. She de clared that the necessity of the pure food law was a sad reflection upon the honesty of the nation. She asserted that man has no respect for woman in America today. The reason they don't is that they are not taught it. Of young people who run away to get married she had this to say: "They don't know the difference between love and a pain in their stomachs." Mrs. Lake's statements may have been 6evere but the pathos of her voice took the edge off them and the earnestness with which she spoke won her audience. Though it got a good box on the cars, Richmond, it was de clared by many, is better for her com ing. Sermon a Power. Those Chautauqua goers and there were many of them who got up in the morning and heard Dr. John P. D. John's Sunday sermon, "A Fireproof Conviction." heard a great discourse. Dr. John, who was formerly president of Depauw University, is one of the brainy men of the Methodist church. Carefully he chose his premises and followed them relentlessly to their conclusions. In a discourse tingling with suppressed energy, abounding in parallelisms, and lighted with vivid imagry, he showed that in all ages it has been the man of convictions who has moved society. He distinguished Sporting World Schweitzer. Heidrick is as grand a player as Cobb. He retired from the game in 1905 to look after his lumber interests, but the lure of the game was too much and he rejoined the Browns last week. The Brooklyns, which were such thorns in the side of Pittsburg, drop ped two games to the Chicago Cubs yesterday. Cincinnati was able to beat Philadel phia yesterday through the splendid pitching of Spade, who shut the Qua kers out with only four hits. Mana ger Murray and Kid Gleason were put out of the game for kicking. About three hundred Cambridge City fans journeyed to Connersville yesterday and saw their pets. massa cred, butchered and pulverized by the Connersville outfit. President Hermann has decided not to sell Coakley to New York and Man ager Ganzel and the Cincinnati fans are again heaving sighs of relief. They never can tell what Garry will do next. For all they know he may now be ne gotiating to sell the entire team and the groundkeeper thrown in. carefully between whim and convic tion, purpose and conviction, and ob stinancy and conviction. It was one of the intellectual events of the entire program. The song service was lead by L. H. Bunyan of the First M. E. church, the invocation was by Rev. Nelson, and the scripture reading by George L. Goodwin. Whitneys Leave. The Whitneys closed the program last night and also their engagement here, with an impressive sacred con cert and readings by Edwin Whitney. In the afternoon they had sung with great impressiveness "Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me," and Light, More Light," a song embodying the last words of Goethe, the great German Poet. Per haps the most beautiful thing they have yet given was "The Bells of Time." Mrs. Whitney recited "In a Hundred Years," and Edwin Whitney "The Song of the Partridge." The quartet closed with a beautiful rendi tion of "Galilee." The Whitneys made a great hit while in Richmond. HAS ENCOUNTER WITH BURGLAR IN HIS HOME (Continued From Page One.) keys are valuable, but the other arti cles are of less worth. Entrance to the Gennett home, at 18 Main street, was gained by prying up a window with a slat secured from a lawn swing. The thief is believed to have been an amateur as he over looked a large number of valuables. Drawers were opened and the contents shifted about, but nothing removed. The furniture was found to have been moved about in a number of rooms. Word was telephoned to police head quarters and within seven minutes af ter it was received, three officers were at the Gennett home but could find no trace or clue, i They made an exami nation of the premises, but found noth ing that would lead to the identifica tion of the thief. Mrs. Fred Gennett is unable to describe the burglar, fur ther than to say he is of medium height. Supt. Bailey is of the opinion the robbery at the Gennett home probably was that of an amateur. The thief overlooked a large amount of valuable silverware and numerous other articles nf wnrth It is nrpsiimprt Tia was in j search of mo onl The Gennett home is one of the finest in the city. Mr. Robbins is unable to state whether the visitor at his home is a white or colored man. He describes him as being above the average in height and very muscular and agile. He wore overshoes or rubber soled shoes as he made no noise in moving upon uncarpeted floors. Money is be lieved to have been sought by the burg lar at both the Robbins' and Gennet homes. A drawer containing neckties and collars in the room of Philip Rob bins, was rumaged through, but a watch in the same drawer was not taken. SUIT FOR INJUNCTION TO BE ARGUED SOON Attorneys and Judge Decide on Sept. 3rd. The suit for injunction to prevent the Terre Haute, Indianapolis and Eastern Traction company from mak ing use of North Twenty-third street for a freight route will be argued in the Wayne circuit court, September 3rd. ' The date was agreed upon at a conference of the attorneys and judge. Miss Mary Carson of Indianapolis is the guest of her sister, Mrs. Milton Craighead. TONIGHT Dr. Johns and Jubilees JUST A FEW RECRUITS Manager Ganzel of the Reds Will Not Try Out Many Youngsters. HOBLITZEL IS WANTED. Manager Ganzel has decide to try out as many of the recruits as. possible this fall, and his reasons for, doing so will appeal to all thinking fans. What the club principally needs is pitchers, and the Red leader will make every ef fort to have all the twirling recruits report as soon as they can get away from their present engagements. He will thus get a chance to look them over in real battles at a time when they are at their best, which is much more satisfactory than trying them out in the spring. This plan will enable ! the manager to eliminate any of the youngsters who have no chance to make good, and take South on the 1900 training trip only those men who have a reasonable chance of sticking with the club. Ganzel hopes to have Hoblitzel report some time this week, and to try him out in a few games at first base during the long home series which has just begun. Then he will try to secure Autrey in time to take him along on the final Eastern trip and look him over. The same policy will be followed with the comparative ly small number of infield and out field recruits who have been secured from the minor leagues. Probably only three gardeners will be asked to re port, Daley, Bescher and Bills, the lat ter a very heavy batter from the coast. Egan, the sensation of the Tristato league, is about the only Infield candi date who will be tried out. By the close of this season Manager Ganzel expects to have a pretty pood line on the new material at his disposal. He figures that, in this way, he will not have to take more than 25 players South next spring, and he la planning to carry 20 of them through the sea son, including at least seven, and pos sibly eight pitchers.

MULM HAEID NOW A SULTAN (Continued From Page One mander of the French force in Mor occo, telegraphs to the government here that Abd-El-Aziz showed the greatest personal courage during the battle, but his example was not fol lowed by his tribesmen who were bad ly organized and poorly armed. Stirs the Dons. Madrid, Aug. 24. The Spanish press is of the opinion that the down fall of Abd-El-Aziz is now an accom plished fact. Several of the news papers are urging a new Algeciras conference. ' STREET IS (Continued From Page One.) er, however. In case of fir in a busi ness block on the south side of the street, it would have to be fought from the opposite side of the street or the firemen would have to drag their hose through the ditch and over the piles of sand and stone. There is a third source of danger in fighting fires that would arise as the result of the street's condition. With any of the residences, stores or factories lo cated on the first square of the cross streets south of Main, between Ninth and Thirteenth, on fire, they could not be reached unless the wagons went to South A street. But, A street could not be reached except at Ninth and Fourteenth streets. The delay that would ensue as the result would allow a dangerous conflagration to spread unrestricted. If an important fire or iginated north of Main street and be tween the limits mentioned, the com bination wagon from company No. 4 would be barred until it had crossed Main at Ninth street and proceeded east through alleys or on North A street. The conditions have been recogniz ed by the chief of the fire department and the assistant chief and both have spoken to members of the board. Nothing came of the matter, however. The city's steam roller was engaged this morning in packing the bottom of the trench preparatory to the placing of the concrete mixture. This was the second time it had been used for the purpose. Last week the concrete gang was busy near Third and Main streets. Water to mix the cement was taken from the public drinking foun tain at the corner of Third street. It was carried away in buckets and the supply in the basin was exhausted at once. The buckets were inserted be neath the inlet and filled direct from this. Street Commissioner Dye was asked if there was any agreement whereby the company used water the city pays for to mix its cement. He said he had not heard of any and did not know of the' incident at Third street. The north tracks now hang on the brink of the excavation. All cars use this single line of track and the cus tomary high speed is maintained.' An investigation of the ends of the ties shows where the weight on the rails of passing cars has caused the ballast and sand to loosen from about the ex posed portion of the ties. The com pany uses no ropes nor guards at night to protect the public against danger. The ted danger lantern was displayed but last night the lanterns were a considerable distance apart in several places. President Staubach of the board has promised a personal investigation of the conditions. He stated this morn ing he would instruct Supt. Gordon, of the local street railway company, that provision must be made to keep the crossings open and better protection provided. FINED FOR DRUNK. Edward Rettinghouse, who has been in before, was fined $10 and costs in city court this morning for public in toxication aad previous conviction. The fine was paid. Howard Ridge, formerly of this city, who is connected with the plant of the American Creosoting company at Springfield, Mo., is in the city for a few days.

While there Father Roell gave a report on the work of the Catholic societies of Indiana, which showed that the work is being successfully carried on, and thoroughly organized and the outlook for the future is brilliant. There were some 500 delegates present at the national meeting, this number being smaller than usual because of the place being so far in the East and not cen trally located. The meeting' will be held at Pittsburg next August. DOGS KILL MUCH POULTRY IN TOWNSHIP Township Trustee Has Paid Out $150 in Claims. Bills from William Jennings and Charles Strader have been presented to Township Trustee Potter, asking reimbursement for poultry killed by dogs. Jennings wants $17.50 for four teen turkeys and Strader wants $7 for six turkeys and two chickens. The claims made since the first of the year amount to about $150.

ZUEBLIN TOMORRGW. HE IS A GREAT FAVORITE WITH RICHMOND AUDIENCES PHIL LIPS' ADDRESS TODAY OF MUCH INTEREST. The Teachers Institute In connec tion with the chautauqua, opened au spiciously this morning. Nearly all the three hundred teachers of th county had arrived. The opening ad dress was by Dr. G. M. Phillips, oa "Some Hints in Teaching Arithme tic" He was followed by Supt. John F. Haines of Hamilton county, who told what the teaching in the country echoola ought to be. This afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. Dr. Phillips again lectured on how lawi are made. Immediately after came a science lecture by Reno B. Welbourn. Welbourn Is the first man to transmit pictures by means of wireless telegra phy, and every minute ot his lecture was interesting. At 4 o'clock the Southland Jubilee Singers will make their first appear-S ance with their genuine old Southern, melodies. They are here for three' days and It is predicted that they will fill the place In popular appreciation, made vacant by the departure of the Whitneys. Tonight at 7 o'clock comes Wallace Amesbury a great reader and enter tainer, at 7:30 the Jubilee singers again and at 8 o'clock Dr. John P. D. John with his grt, . lecture, "Did Man Make God or God Make Man." Tomorrow the teachers will be glad ened bV the annearance of Dr. Char les Zueblln of Chicago university. Dr. Zueblln Is a great favorite with Rich mond audiences. At three p. m. Syl vester A. Long will offer his quaint but instructive lecture "Lightning and Toothpicks." Tomorrow night at 8 o'clock. Dr. Zueblln vill lecture on "The Redemption of Harrisburg." In his address this morning Dr. Phil lips pointed out needed reforms in" the teaching of arithmetic, H reforms to which they are Just awakening In his state, Pennsylvania. There are many subjects such as partial payments and cube root which have no place In the grade arithmetic today. In their places mental arithmetic and a fuller mastery of all mechanical processes are to be emphasized. It is much to our credit to know that the reforms which he pointed out have already been effected in the Richmond schools. Supt. Haines, the elongated man from Hamilton, had an address laden with thought for the country teachers,: He predicted that the time will come when the country teacher will be furn ished his house and grounds and be come a permanent fixture In the com munity. He should be paid a salary ranging from $800 to $2,000 and he must be neither a man without ambl- make a city license. He would giro the country child more sanitary build tngs and teach him agriculture. Above all he would prohibit the young man from the city making a starting place of the country school. t ..TO MIGHT..
