THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUX-TELEGMH, SUNDAY, MARCH 14, 1909.
PAGE TWO. PROBFT ACTIOtJ Oil PABT COUIICIL CANDIDATES ASK Want City Judgeship Question Settled Before the Primary Election Is Held, for Sake of Protection. ' ; . . ; " I MAY DELAY PRIMARY ; FOR SEVERAL, WEEKS the present incumbent, is troubled with pour health and ha not been able to attend the council meetings regularly for jwm time. ., It is belived there will be several aspirant for the of fice from the eighth ward. The men now holding positions a city officers have been somewhat ' '61& turbed as the result of the new law, as they did not know whether they are holding office legally or not. The law did not say anything about the men now serving under the old law and nt was not known whether they would be expected to retain the positions or not. While at Indianapolis Friday, City Controller Pa-Try took occasion to make inquiry at the state house. He wa informed that the present of fice holders retain their positions un til the first of next year. , DOME WITH SEYMOUR Several Candidates for Coun cil Are Already in the Field And the Race . Promises to Be Exciting.'!; " The common council could prevent a great deal of worry- , to prospective candidates and no doubt save the city from no small amount of,lnconvience, if it decided within the next few meet ings whether or not be of flee" of aty judge is to be continued. . Under the new cities and towns act, which now Is in effect, the council is given power to abolish the office'at'fany time not later than within ninety days preced ing an election. It is fheld that if council has any idea of .abolishing this office about next August, it should do eo'now, or at any date previous to the republican primary. Candidates Want to Know. In all probability the cJty , judge would be a republican. The republi can primary election will be held next month, unless extreme measures are brought about which, will delay it un til June. If the city judgship is to be retained candidates will have the right to know soon. They will not waht to go into a nominating race, knowing they will be left without chances for the office by the date of the general election. If the office is not done away with, the candidates! will want to know, so that they may begin how and push their campaign. Uuder the new law, It will become necessary also to elect another councll-man-at-large. At present the common council consists of one man from each ward and three councUmen-at-Iarge... The new law requires a councilman from every ward and half as many counciltnen-at-large as there are wards, n this city ther are eight wards and this means another counellmen-at-large Is to be addedto the list. Already a number of aspirants for council are in the field. . Harvey Brown, at present a counciknan-at-large, has announced his candidacy for council from the sixth ward, t is ex pccted that Charles Wettig, the pres ent , representative of the.sixtb ., will again seek the office. W.. Pj-O'Neal, a member of the board of, public works, whoee term expires the- first of next year, a former councilman from this ward, may seek the office again; H.-H.-Englebert is a candidate in the third Many Job Hunters. In several of the wards it believed the present councilman will .seek, re election. This is not believed likely. to prove true in the second, and fifth wards. Henry, Deuker," councilman from the second, is a candidate for mayor. In the fifth, 'Oliver Leftwlck, President Brush Upholds Ac , tion of Manager Muggsy McGraw. ASSAULT NOT PROVOKED Dallas, Texas, March 13. Si Sey mour, the center fielder, Awill never again play for the Gianzs. It is likely that some major league team will pur chase, him, but of course Manager Mo Graw will let the team have him that will make the beet offer. ' President Brush tand& firmly be hind McGraw in the action, he took in dismissing Si. who punched Coach Latham on slight provocation. "The first thing I knew of the af fair," declared Mr, Brush, "was' when McGraw told mo about it immediately after it happened, and I complimented him on his good judgment. Seymour came to me and asked; me his stand ing with the club. "I osfted him the cause of the trou ble with Latham and he said they were playing at a game of cards when Si coughed. Latham said, 'Look out, Si, you will cough up a jackpot.' 'A very trival cause for Seymour's brutal as sault, t thought. "I have known Latham for twenty years and . I know there is nothing vicious in'nis' nature." The affair caused no end of excite ment among the players and guests of the hotel.

O'NEAL TAK ; INQ SOUNDINGS IN TROUBLE SOME SEA OF POLITICS. By the end of next week it is be lieved that the citizens will know just what the mayoralty timber looks like, that is in respect to knowing the per sonel. There are three prospective candidates who are still undecided,. These three are. Judge W. C. Converse of the city court;, A. C Llndemutb, formerly city attorney; and Watson P. O'Neal, republican member of the board of works. Last evening, each of these three men stated that the future was indeterminate as yet, but that they had it under consideration. All the men have many friends who are urging them to make the race. There are five men In the race at present and if these three announce themselves, the field will be the largest in many years. It is probable, how ever, that the first of these candidates to announce himself will cause the other two to decide it is best to wait for four more years.

An announcement which should ex cite the greatest interest among local theatergoers is that of the forthcom ing performance here of "Mrs. Tem ple's Telegram' by Miss Rose Evans and a splendid supporting company. The famous farce comedy is too well known to need extended description, while the mere fact that Miss Evans is in the cast Is a guarantee of the quality of the company,' farther as surance of which lies in the fact that the production is under the direction of Messrs.

Private palace cars, $10,000 first part, a superbly equipped street parade and the support, transporta tion and salaries for fifty people, cer tainly does tie up a power of money and requires a lot of coin to keep the fabric going and with all your rivals tell me that you are walking on vel vet," adding the truism "the people demand a good deal nowadays." Vo gel nodded an assent as he remarked, It was not always thus; it is a mat ter of fact that in 1863 a popular Ethiopian comedian sold his horse and buggy and put a troupe of four teen people on the road with the pro ceeds and fairly astonished the na tives."

When con gress assembles on Monday it will be gin one of the most Important ses sions in its history. Tariff revision Will, of course, occupy the center of the stage, but beside that for which the whole country is clamoring there are many other measures of the ut most importance that will be consid ered at this session. Six of these are the income tax, in heritance tax, parcels poet bill, postal savings bank, revision of the currency and limitation of the power'of injunc tion!. These, and' the new tariff bill. will fully occupy congress for; several months. It is thought that the extra session will last until at least the be ginning and probably the end of June. There will be,' as usual, a' flood of small bills, but these will receive scant consideration at tbe ' hands of the lawmakers in face of the other more important legislation. Need of Revision. President Taft's message to con gress will lay stress on the need of revision of the tariff and it is under stood will be brief and to the point The special session also will have to deal with the Sherman anti-trust law and consider some adjustment of tbe rights of capital and labor, which have , grown more acute owing to the Gompers case decisions. The new administration is facing and must handle some big problems, most of them inheritances from the Roosevelt regime. Among them are the suits against1 the Standard Oil company, tbe proceedings to dissolve tbe tobacco trusts, the suits against the powder trust, coal trust and against the Harriman railroads. Land fraud prosecutions in the west will, it is understood, be taken up by the new attorney general, Wickersham, where they were laid down, by Bona parte. There are pending and will be presented many prosecutions and suits against the railroads under the interstate commerce laws. Three Months Session. The Taft administration and the ex tra session of congress will have their hands full with large public questions for the next three months. Probably the legislation that will cause more work and worry than any other, next to getting the tariff bill through so that it pleases a majority of the busi ness Interests of the country will be the attempt to devise some sort of legislation to bring in more revenue so replace the" fast dwindling treasury sarplus and to provide sufficient funds to pay the current expenses of the government, which are constantly increasing at a rate that badly scares the watchdogs of the treasury in the house. o INDIANA POLO LCAGU2 ELWOOD VEZRGUO 7ICHGOHD Monday Evsnlns.
