Fort Wayne avenue. One end of the pipe was stopped up and showed where molten lead had been poured in. There was a slight opening that looked as ; if it could . be used for a fuse and the arrangement of the en tire affair made those unacquainted with it fear it was a bomb of some sort The house had been occupied by Italians and all sorts . of stories filled the imagination of the men who found the pipe. They turned it over to the police forthwith and " related their suspicions.' While unable to ex plain the thing, the police do not be lieve it a bomb.

Many of the articles appearing In this issue of the Palladium were written by the members of the Earlham Press Club. These young men, who are enthusiastic over their journalistic studies, worked with a vim on the assignments giv en them by the news editor, and even the veteran reporters admit ted, that they: were al"likely look ing bunch of cubs." It's very sel dom that your experienced news gatherer will make such an admis sion. The Palladium wishes the Earlham Press Club success and is glad 'thatlt'h'as been able to as sist it a little in the practical side of its work. Rebellious Turk Troops WEST RICHMOND CITIZEIIS STILL DflEMOF PARK Expect That Some Day People Of the City Will Awake to The Natural Beauty of the River Front. IMPROVEMENT WILL , EVENTUALLY BE MADE Objection Raised to Practice Of Some People Removing Trees and Shrubs From the Bottoms. (Earlham Press Club.) That the aim of those interested in the river front park, is for immediate and extended improvement, was denied by Prof. Heironimus yesterday after noon. "We cannot hope for beautiful parks and boulevards at-once," said the pro fessor, "but what the city can. and ought to do, is to prevent the cutting of the shrubs and trees in their nat ural growth. Why, just the other day, a man who owns a little corner alons the west bank of the river, north of the Main street bridge,1 went down and dug up some fine young trees to trans plant in his own yard; but he got off of his private lot, and was digging shrubs oft of land belonging to the city. Now, what if every . fellow wno wishes to improve his back yard, goes down to the river and carries off some of the fine young trees that are grow ing there? Soon there will be nothing there but .a rain-washed, rocky ter race an . eye-sore to everybody 'that crosses either one of the two bridges Bank' Formerly Bare. An old man, employed at the piano factory, when approached on the sub ject , by .Prof. Heironimus,. the other day, said he' could remember when the .ttkof tfwr vwf beten- tBe two bridges, was as bare as.lt now is north of the Doran bridge. :, He said that at that time such a bare bank was unsightly enough, but was less noticeable because of the. position of the old National bridge. The old man is only a laborer at the factory, but is heartily willing to aid in preserv ing the natural beauty of the river banks. ' "" - In speaking further of the matter, Prof. Heironimus said that a river the sice of Whitewater was the most suit able place that a city could have to begin to beautify. But in almost every city the citizens turn their backs up on the rivers, considering them a nui sance. The citizens go to the outskirts to build their homes and the city itself seeks sites away . from the river to build Its parks. Instead of facing houses toward the river, little shacks are backed up against it. and all re fuse is dumped down its banks. , Perhaps no other portion of any street is used more every day than is that part of Main street occupied by the bridge. Hundreds of Sunday after noon strollers cross it every Sunday. Many a stranger, seeing our river for the first time, remarks upon the ex ceptional opportunity offered for a bou levard along its Vest bank. If the trees and shrubs can be pre served for the present, the West Siders hope to arouse interest enough in the matter to get the city to take up the actual work of making a' river front park or boulevard. According to Mr. Lon Gardner, chairman of the com mittee appointed to push the project, the intention is first to build the park between the Doran and Main street bridges, and then to extend it to the proposed South Side bridge. As soon as the city or private citizens can be induced to contribute materially to the project, the rivers bank can be made into one of the most beautiful parks in Indiana, according to the promoters of the idea," and their only hope, they say, is to keep up the Interest by showing the public the exceptional possibilities of the site. . I) Another Gordon Lie Nailed In regard to the article which apeared In the Item, which insin uated that J. B. Gordon dictated his own terms to the city committee, and that the committee accepted there terms, a member of the com mittee last evening stated: - "In reference to the statement that appeared in the Item tonight regarding the rules adopted by the city committee, it is only fair that the Republicans of the city know the facts in the case. In the first place, the privilege of allowing the candidates to select a member on eaeh election board was only carrying out a precedent established at the last inayorality campaign, in which Nusbaum. Neal and Zimmerman were each allowed to select one man on each election board. Second, that no concessions were granted any one of the candidates, and they, each of the candidates for mayor, signed an agreement as origlnally adopted by the committee." CROP COHDITIOIIS DUIIE FAVORABLE Wheat Will Not Be Up to the Standard, But Other Crops Good. EXPECT GOOD CORN YIELD THERE WILL ALSO BE A LARGE RYE YIELD IN WAYNE COUNTY POTATOES ARE MAKING GOOD PROGRESS. (Earlham Press Club.) Wheat conditions today indicate that there will be at least a one-half crop Farmers in this section see the need of the great flurry in the Chicago wheat market. Few of the farmers In this locality have many surplus bush els for sale. But should the prices remain good at threshing time the ( bulk of the threshed grain will be put on the market. It is found on black and undraineJ farm lands the yield of wheat will be! the least, . which , is contrary to the general conditions of other years. Us ually the clayey, lands produce the fewer bushels to the acre. ; - - - i - ,' Rye; Growing Fast.' V Grpwing rye, .ha jnade-a -wonderful growth, within tbo last two weeks, and farmers are beginning to realise that rye; is a safer crop than ' wheat, com paring one year with another- The acreage of oats in this section is below the average, and, strange to say, but few fields have reached the height to show the usual greenness. Generally, oats have mado a good etart by the middle or latter part of of April. Corn, with the opening of winter, and with the soil in fair condition, bids well to make a good showing, per haps the largest crop that has been grown in this vicinity in recent years. This can be credited to the great ad vancement in soil preparation. Many farmers finished their plowing during the fair winter months so that by this time little breaking is being done, except In fields where corn grew last year. Thero seems to be no apprehension concerning the germinative qualities of the seed corn, either of the yellow or white varieties. But little attention has been given to this most impor tant point In corn growing, up to this time. ; 'Germination Good., By gardening with the aid of hot beds, which are used so extensively by our gardeners, much time- is saved in the growth of plants, and before long the different plantations will be sup plied with nice-sized plants in the veg etable line.. It Is believed by many that the potato crop this year will be a surprise to every one, although the price of seed potatoes has been ex tremely high. It seems to be almost universal for both farmers and gar deners to put out every bushel that he can secure. RADLY FRIGHTENED Attaches of Turkish Embassy At Washington Refuse To Talk.

SEES CITY'S EXPANSION WHERE THE . COMPANY PAYS HUNDREDS NOW FOR REAL ES TATE IT WOULD PAY THOUS ANDS A FEW YEARS HENCE. (Earlham Press Club.) The purchase of a piece of property by a -railroad always stirs up quite an amount of curiosity and speculation as to what use the company Intends to put it to. MoEt of the people of Rich' mond knows that the Pennsylvania railroad has recently purchased con siderable property In and about the city. What are they planning to do with it, is the question. " The com pany keeps "mum" and looks suspi cious to the people. When the Pennsylvania first camo into Richmond, they struck the east era outskirts of the town, where land was cheap. But the town has grown. especially along the railroad right-of- way.LAt the present . time the land held by the railroad is very valuable. Look to Future. . They - are wise enough to foreee a still further advance in the price of real estate along their line. The ra'l road Is here to stay, and, If, by buying now they pay hundreds for what would cost them thousands twenty years hence, they have made a a good in vestment. Working upon this assumption, the engineers figured out what improve ments will likely have to mar'e in the future. The plans are drawn up and the land purchased. That is the end of it, as far as most people are concerned. ' Suppose a tract at a certain place along the line is not far from the cen ter of town and has all the good qual ities for the location of a factory. One is bound to be established there some day. The land between this and the railroad will have to be used for switch. At the present time It would cost several hundred dollars. After the factory is located there it would cost ten times as much. Traffic Increases. As the town grows the freight traf fic Increases. It will not be a great while before a double freight track through the city will bo a necessity. The shops will have to be enlarged and the land for all this must be purchased while It is cheap. UNCLE SAM ENTERS IIITOJfiEEMEIITS Divides Cost With the Stand ard Oil Company.
