M'CULLOUGH'S VIEW T ANDERSON COUNCIL ENTER TAINS A MOTION TO REDUCE SALARIES OF BOARD MEMBERS TO 1100 A YEAR. Anderson, Ind., March 18. When the Common Council met In special session to approve the bonds of the new police commissioners, a motion was made nd seconded to reduce the salaries of police board members to $ 100 a year. Kurther action was deferred, until the council, in regular session, can pass an Ordinance. Under the metropolitan police law, the salary of each member of the police board was $14) a year. There is a prospect of a test of the jiew police law in the home city of Senator C. K. MeCullough, whose bill repealed the metropolitan police law. The new police board has offered the euperintendency to Mark Robbing, a former superintendent, but Otcar C. Houston, the present incumbent, pro pose to hold the job as long as pos sible..' ' ' Grounds of Dispute. A dispute is on as to whether the board can summarily dismiss an offi cer from service unless charges are filed against him and proved. Sena tor MeCullough was appealed to for in formation on that point. He said his till only changed the police law in that the mayors of cities, instead of the governor of the state, should ap point the police boards. The bill, Senator MeCullough further said, con tained nothing concerning rules by which a police force may be governed, lie was not positive as to whether the rules of the metropolitan police law would be In effect under the new po lice law end thereby giving an officer a hearing before he could be discharg ed from service. It was the opinion of Senator MeCullough, however, that the new police board could formulate Its own rules and by such rules dismiss member of the police board if the board chose to do so. All of the patrolmen have lined up to a man with Superintendent Houston to "stand pat" and not resign. The men believe the police board cannot af ford to rip the police force to pieces and discharge men without cause if it hopes to have a police force that will work faithfully." The Original Mieawber.

YOUNG GIRL IS III PITIABLE PLIGHT Accuses Her Uncle, a Minister, Being Responsible for Her Trouble. FATHER MAY BE TO BLAME EDITOR VS. PASTOR Former Challenges Latter to Fistic Combat in a Church Cellar. MAY CHARGE ADMISSION Allentown, Pa., March 18. H. Sine Rice, editor of the Siegfried Independ ent, has challenged the Rev. J. G Rupp, pastor of a Reformed church in the same borough, to a fist fight. Some days ago, Mr. Rice stated that of 231 signatures on license petitions, thirty-seven were those of members of Mr. Rupp's congregation, and re marked that the suppression of evils should begin in church. Then Rice alleges he was told that the preacher said he would give $10 to the man who would thrash the editor. -Rice's reply was this challenge: "I suggest that you and I engage In a fistic encounter to a finish, Marquis of Queensbury rules, in the basement of your edifice, and charge admission.

Benjamin Mayo, aged 60, is the father of her new-born babe. Miss Mary Etta Puter baugli, 17, of near Salem, Madison township, has entered paternity pro ceedings against him in the court of Justice of the Peace William Myers of Pike township. But, according to the aged minister and his friends, the blame has been misplaced and that the girl's father, Joshua Puterbaugh, is guilty of the most degrading of crimes. The community, which Is aroused over the outrage is about ev enly divided in their opinion as to the guilty party, one faction accusing the preacher and the other the father. Mother of Girl is Dead. The mother of the unfortunate girl has been dead for a number of years and she has kept house for her father and her uncle, the minister, who has made his home with them the greater part of the time. For some months the girl's condition has been known to the neighbors and common gossip had it that her father, aged 60, was respon sible. The finger of suspicion, was also turned toward the uncle and the filing of the suit caused no surprise, al though many believe that the wrong man has been accused. Accuses the Minister. Puterbaugh was in this city consult ing with Prosecuting Attorney Flem ing. He emphatically denied that he was responsible for his daughters disgrace, and said that there was no doubt in his mind that the uncle-min ister was guilty of her betrayal. Mayo, on the other hand, claims to have con clusive evidence of his innocence, which he will furnish when the case comes to trial. THE THEATER THEATRICAL CALENDAR. GENNETT.

RO0O Holvillo in SI S HO PCI ITJS The New Phillips. Hufford and Chain, the two black face comedians at the New Phillips these last three days are as relieving as the sound of a babbling brook. Well, some times they sound like that just babble along through a whole line of nothingness. But this nothingness Is just enough to make them desired. They say things which tickle the palate, or the thorax, or the vertebrae wherever you are easi ly tickled. When it comes to imitat ing the colored brother, they can do it. Dixie Harris and sister are a mark ed improvement over some things which Richmond has seen in their line. Dixie sings and his sister dances. Then Dixie dances and his sister sings. Between the two there is always something doing. And still they come. Kipp and Kip- py juggle. How they can eliminate some of the things which are making the rounds of the vaudeville stage is surprising and still make good. But they do it with a full line. Vogel's Minstrels. On Saturday, matinee and night, March 27, John W. Vogel's Big City Minstrels will be seen at the Gennett theater. The company is half a hun dred strong and boasts of a roster sec ond to none. Manager Vogel's repu tation for being a standard bearer is enough to satisfy us that the perform ance will be in keeping with the her alding. The Lane Troupe of acrobats who have been engaged at an enor mous salary, for this tour only, is said to be one of the most sensational novelties of the country and one of the features of the performance. , At the Arcade. "A Fools Revenge" is an intensely thrilling play showing how, when a man attempts to commit a crime, it can act as a boomerang and strike the culprit instead of the intended victim. This picture is of an excep tionally high class and to appreciate it it must be seen. Sis Hopkins. A rural comedy drama in which there is nothing even suggesting cari cature of the Posey type of people, is Sis Hopkins, the most delightful and satisfying rural play on the stage to day which will be seen at the Gennett on Monday, March 29. Miss Rose Melville, who first gave the quaint and lovable character of the Posey county girl to the stage, will again be seen In the title role. This Is Miss Melville's tenth year of continuous success. The play has been given an entirely new production this season by Miss Melville's manager, Mr. J. R. Stirling and the company supporting her is the best she has ever had. In the now famous seminary scene, there are m'-ny new specialties introduced and Obadiah, the remarkable odd un dertaker's assistant, has written a new set of epitaphe for the character of Posey county.

BUM SERVICE CONTINUES There was the same old lack of street car accommodations following the show last night. One car each way was all that was provided. The West Richmond car made a long trip over the Fairview line before going out the Richmond avenue route. The Earl ham car was not able to accommodate the patrons of the line. Men stood on the fenders and women packed the platforms. The car was loaded so heavily that the rear fender bumped the ground all along the trip. When there is a crowd, there is no car; when j it rains the cars leak, and when it is i dry the dust suffocates the passengers, AS YE OLDEN TIMES Exhibit Now Being Held at Centerville Reproduc tion of Past.
