London. April 24. The Sultan is a

nya a Lloyd's news dispatch from
Constantinople. A . thousand were
killed and wounded in the fighting at
the . Taxim barracks. The garrison
there ran up a white flag, but when
the salonikan troops approached they
met them with a deadly Are and
forced them to retreat. Afterwards
the barracks were bombarded with ar
ttUereye and the besiegers, rushing
across the square, engaged the loy
alists with bayonets. The garrison
was overwhelmed. The Tashkisla
garrison refused to surrender until it
received a murderous artillery fire.

; Washington, April 24 Secretary of
the Navy Meyer cabled , today to Na
ples, where the ' gunboat Scorpion is
undergoing repairs, to have extra la
bor employed and the work of repair
pushed night and day in order that the
hip may be speeded to the scene of
the lighting. It was said at the navy
department that , the repairs to the
Scorpion would be completed in a
few days. This would enable the ship
to reach the theater, of Insurrection
considerably in advance of the Taco
ma, which was - ordered to proceed
thence yesterday. '
Meanwhile the hope is entertained
that American Interests will be well
looked after by the representatives of
the European powers. Great chagrin
Is felt here to official circles that the
United States has been caught in this
emergency without proper naval rep
resentation . in the Levant. No echo
of the battle, which has been raging
In the streets of Constantinople, and
no word from the Sultan whose power

come to the Turkish legation here.

Iron pipe as it lay on top of the safe

minutes before it had brought terror
to a number of men engaged in clean

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

Will Retain Jackson Park This
The Terre Haute, Indianapolis &
Eastern Traction company has re
newed its lease on Jackson Park,
west of Centerville, with Capi, C. B
Jackson. The intention is to throw
the park open to the public, May 1.
The arrangements have not been com
pleted, but it is probable there will be
a band concert in the afternoon, and
a masquerade dance at night.
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
Expect That Some Day People
Of the City Will Awake to
The Natural Beauty of the
River Front.
Objection Raised to Practice
Of Some People Removing
Trees and Shrubs From the
(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. .
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."
Wheat Will Not Be Up to the
Standard, But Other
Crops Good.
(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
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
; '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.

Pennsylvania Has Purchased
Much Property in Rich
mond as Reserve.
(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
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.

Washington, April 4 The govern
