RICHMOND COULD NOT MEET BURDEN IMPOSED Local Legislator Points Out That Bill From Sanitary Standpoint Is Good One, But Has Drawbacks. A. M. Gardner, representative from Wayne and Fayette counties in the state legislature has written Secretary E. M. Haas of the Richmond Commer cial club calling his attention to house bill 44. This bill proposes to stop pol lution of streams by prohibiting any city or town to drain its sewage into a stream. If the bill becomes a law it will mean a vast expenditure to the city of Richmond. With the exception of the new southwest sewer system Just completed, every large sewer in the city drains to the Whitewater riv er. To change this entire system and construct sanitation beds could be done only at enormous expense. At the present time the city would be un able to meet the expenditure. Representative Gardner writes that from a sanitary standpoint there is no doubt but that the bill provides a good thing. It is recognized throughout the world that sewage drained into riv ers become a menace to health. Stream pollution has been the subject for a sweeylng investigation in this state recently because of the refuse matter turned into the waterways by certain factories and 'other industries. Provisions of Bill. Among the provisions of the bill are the following: Whenever the common council, board of health of any city or town, or the board of county commissioners of any county, or the trustee of any township in this state, shall make complaint in writing to the state board of health, charging that any city, town village, corporation, person or firm named in said complaint is discharging or is permitting to be discharged, any sewage or other waste, or befouling or deleterious matter into any stream, water course, river, spring, lake or pond, and is thereby materially in duing, for domestic use, the character of the water into which the same is discharged to the injury of the public health or comfort, or is polluting the sourceof any public water supply, it shall be the duty of the state board of health to forthwith inquire .into and investigate conditions complained of, and if upon such investigation said board shall find the charges, or any of them made in such complaint to be true and thta the conditions produced by the acts complained of are detrl mental to public health or comfort, or to the comfort and health of persons residing in the vicinity of the water so befouled, it shall notify the person, municipality, corporation or firm causing the pollution of the board's finding, and in the notice shall fix a time of hearing. If the board of health finds by the hearing a remedy is need ed it has the power to prescribe. Ten Years for Payment. From and .after the passage of this act it shall be unlawful for any muni cipality to construct . any sewer, or drain designed to carry any substance or matter of the character to injurious ly affect water for domestic use, which shall directly or indirectly, discharge into any stream or water course unless it shall have before putting the same Into use, povided as part of such sew er or drain, a plant for the purifica tion of the discharge thereof. The cost is to be defrayed by assess ments against property owners. Ten years time is allowed for the payment of the assessments. The bill provides for penalties in case of violation. PETITIONERS INCLUDE CLERKS. SHOP EMPLOYES, MERCHANTS AND BANKERS HOUSE WILL ACT TODAY. Senator R. E. Kirkman will be the reel pent of many telegrams asking him to support the measure repealing the anti Sunday base ball law. The telegrams will be forwarded by repre sentative citizens, including business men, shop employes and clerks, who are ardent supporters of the game. There were many active church mem bers included in the list. Word was received in this city this morning that the bill providing for the repeal of the law would be sub mitted to the house for passage today in all probability. Immediately sever al enthusiasts visited business men and others asking that t'aey send tele grams to Senator Kirkman. It is known that the bill will pass the house, but the senate is doubtful. The bill provides that Sunday base ball may be played in any community on afternoons between the hours of 2 and 6 o'clock. The base ball grounds, according to the provisions of the law must be a certain distance away from tlie nearest church in order that no re ligious meetings may be disturbed. Furthermore the bill provides that an admission fee may be charged at the gate. Those who solicited citizens to send telegrams to Senator Kirkman stated that they were prompted solely be cause they believed In the bill. They do not know at this time whether or not a team will represent this city next summer, should the bill become a law. However it is probable that such will be the result. Similar efforts are being made In other cities. India napolis citizens, especially, are favor ing the repeal. EL & JO fflG mm SNHff ME ! Everything reduced the real bona fide sale of the year.

M. C. A. Sec retary Involuntarily Takes Plunge in the Lake. STEPS THROUGH THIN ICE Richmond people will be interested to know that Charles II. Brown, who had charge of the work of raising the fund for the erection of the local Y. M. C. A. building, has already formal ly opened the outdoor bathing sea son at Michigan City, where he is en gaged In Y. M. C. A. work. His action, however, was purely involuntary. A Michigan City exchange says: Charles H. Brown, field secretary for the Y. M. C. A., took the first bath of the season in Lake Michigan about 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon. It might be suspected that he had become tired waiting for the completion of the Y, M. C. A. swimming pool, or that the spring-like weather induced an irre 6istable impulse to take a plunge, but such was not the case. The act was entirely involuntary. Mr. Brown sim ply stepped on a spot where the ice was not strong enough to support his weight and he went through into the icy water up to his chin. By making good use of his finely developed mus cles he managed to pull himself out and walk ashore. The weather being warm Mr. Brown did not immediately seek the comforting heat of stove and send for a change of clothes, but walk ed up town and to his room, leaving behind a drizzle that told of his condi tlon.
