ACTION TAKEN BY LOCAL BUSI
NESS MEN AT THE REQUEST
OF THE STATE FEDERATION OF
COMMERCIAL CLUBS.
At the request of the special com
mittee of the allied commercial organ
izations of the state, telegrams were
sent to Roscoe Kirkman, senator from
Wayne county, which were signed by
the board of directors of the Com
mercial club and by the special com
mittee of the local . organization.
These telegrams request that Senator
Kirkman support the Bland bill now
before the senate. This bill provides
for the uniform system of accounting
as is promoted bylthe commercial or
ganizations of the state. 'If the bill
becomes a law It will mean business
methods in township government in
stead of the loose system now In
vogue.
Divided Report Made.
A divided report on the bill was
made to the senate this morning. The
report was presented by the commit
tee on county and township business.
The committee met yesterday after
noon and. after it was apparent that
the members could not come to an
agreement announcement was made
that two reports will be submitted.
The majority will recommend the
passage of the bill and the minority
will report, it for Indefinite postpone
ment. The majority report will be signed
"by Senators Bland, Pelzer, Brady, Cox
and Kling, while Senators Benz and
Ranke will sign the minority. Senator
Kling. who had a similar, accounting
bill before the committee.. as given
way to the Bland measure to the ex
clusion,, of his own.
In explaining his reasons for such
action, Senator Kling said that in de
ference to the work that the Merch
ants' association committee has done
in preparing the bill and in making
the investigation for its drafting, he
would withdraw, his measure.
"I am opposed to the expense at
tached to the establishment of the
system as advocated in the mer
chants' bill," said Senator Benz. "This
bill, I believe, was drafted to suit the
situation here in Marion county, and
I do not believe the legislature should
burden the taxpayers of the state on
account of evils which exist in one
locality."

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.

When Your Stomach Hurts
. Take a Little Kodol
Tie pain will then cease your stomach will feel
good. Kodol stops the pains of indigestion and dys
pepsia quickly, because it digests all the food you eat.
Kodol is a pleasant, palatable,
liquid preparation, that helps the
stomach to do its work in a natural
way. Being a liquid, it starts di
gestion at once.
Kodol supplies the same digestive
juices that are found in a healthy
stomach. 'This is why it will stop
the pains of indigestion quickly.
. - Your stomach, being weakened,
probably, by over feeding or over
work, is unable to do its work
properly, and the natural result is
Indigestion, sour stomach, gas, or
belching, which will soon result In
chronic dyspepsia unless the stom
ach is given help.
Nervous Indigestion or dyspep
sia. It is not only annoying, but
dangerous. If let alone, the result
generally is gastritis, or oftentimes
that fatal affliction appendicitis.
Don't neglect your stomach.
Don't take any chances. There is
no need for you to suffer, because
little Kodol now and then, will
keep the stomach well, healthy and
strong. Do not diet or starve your
self. That is not the way to get
help.
Eat what you want of the food
you like, and let Kodol help tta
stomach do its work. You can't
be well unless you eat and unless
you enjoy your food. You can't,
get nourishment from your food,
unless you digest it. Take a little
Kodol now and then. That is the
only safe and sure way.
You do not have to depend o
Kodol all the time. You only take
it when you need it

BHOWII OPENS SEASON
Former Local Y. 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.

XPOSURE AFTER
CENSURE CAUSED
DEATH WALTERMAN
(Continued From Page One.)
sickness but believed it to be of only
a trifling nature.
Mr. Walterman is survived by his
wife, Gertrude, one daughter. Miss
Helen and one son, Joseph. His aged
mother Hannah Walterman and broth
ers, Harmon, of this city, Joseph, of
Spokane, Wash., and Mathias of Mil
waukee survive, also. The arrange
ments for the funeral will be announc
ed elsewhere in this edition.
Was Very Popular.
One of the best known German citi
zens in Richmond, Mr. Walterman
was also one of the best liked. He
was employed at the J. M. Hutton
coffin factory for thirty years. He
was identified prominently with all
matters concerning the Interests of St.
Andrew's Catholic church and was
looked upon as one of its leading
members.
He had been market master and in
spector of weights and measures for
about three years. His associates at
tlie city building state a more consci
entious man never held the office.
During his administration the market
house on South Sixth street was im
proved greatly. Repairs were made
and accommodations provided so that
the place can be made use of through
out the entire year Instead of only in
t je summer months, as previously.
It was known Mr. Walterman wan
greatly chagrined and mortified by
the criticism of the condition of the
walks about the market house by Mr.
Von Plen. Weather conditions had
been bad and the enow and ice had
collected in large quantities. It was
claimed. A soon as the weather mod
erated. Mr. Walterman attempted to
clear the walks and his exposure followed.
