From a nervous collapse that boraerea upon ftiAS Whito tho' Roctroininn dementia. Lieut. Gordan A. Dennis, Order Is in Force, the Ques tion Now Asked. Indianapolis, Ind., May 11. It is a serious question whether any of the 130 fire insurance companies in In diana that belong to what is known as the "union" can legally write any in surance policies while the temporary restraining order obtained in this city by Attorney General Bingham stands against them.

In all of the counties there Is main tained a local inspection bureau with a local inspector in charge. Each agent -is required to send through this bu reau his daily report on every policy written by him. This report describes the risk, the amount written, the rate charged and the amount of the pre mium. The Inspector keeps a record troops passu ed a body of insurgents of all these reports and it is his dw 1 into the crater of a "volcano. to see to it that no agent cuts the rate. Council Believes Section Eighth Street Should Be Improved. of TEMPORARY REPAIRS POOR ENGLEBERT STATES THAT THIS KIND OF IMPROVEMENT IS POOR ECONOMY AND IS NOT EVEN SATISFACTORY. DES MOINES HAS A BIGjIHE TODAY Gunpowder and Fireworks Add to the Trouble. Des Moines, la., May. 11. The Mc Cune building was partly - destroyed early today by fire. The roof fell in and the Inflammable stock of gunpow der and fireworks and wall-paper burn ed rapidly. A series of explosions oc curred, and several firemen were hurt by falling ' timbers. Guests of the state central hotel, nearby, were sent out safely. Been Hit? Nerves Gone ? , Qait Coffee - and Use iPdDsraM That there is no economy in continu ally bleeding the city by the making of temporary repairs to the streets, on which permanent repairs should . be made, was the gist of the argument o! councilman Englebert last evening in referring to the proposed bricking of Eighth street from South A street to North E street He also said that if the city was to have any more per manent streets it would -be up to the council to take such action as the property owners would not. . iwring nis live or six years as a councilman, Englebert declared there had been but one permanent street im provement. He referred to the cost of resurfacing North Ninth street from Main to A streets, as an ex ample of how the city treasury was being bled. This improvement will cost in the neighborhood of $350 when completed. 1 Study Balks Englebert. Mr. Englebert has supporters in the council and the Eighth street improve ment, will, probably, be ordered made. City Attorney T. J. Study, who also believes that the improvement should be made, said to Mr. Englebert, "you keep the council annoyed and I will annoy the traction .company." Even though' the entire street is not paved, it is probable that the section beween North and South A streets will be. The street car company will be made to meet the cost of 'the pavement be tween its tracks. Several hot shots were slammed at the traction compa ny for failing to live up to its con tract and permit the principal corner of the city to look like a mud hole. An inquiry , as to who tore up a por tion " of the second square of South Fifth street about three weeks ago. after the street had been improved but a day and a half, was made by Coun cilman Bartel. , "An - unresponsive board of . works, 'street commissioner and civil engineer allowed Watson P. O'Neal to answer in an indirect man ner, and without committing himself as to who the party was, that the city had an inspector on the Job now. Councilman Englebert requested that the boanfof works report to council at each meeting the Improvements made during the preeeeCsg futsisat. Mixed With Privates. Then he violated the rules again by becoming intoxicated in company with several privates and ' again "Goo-goo- ing" indiscriminately. Again he was courtmaslteied, and this time dismis sal was the result. Mr. Dennis enlisted as a private in the volunteers at : the time of the Spanish war. As a sergeant in 1899, he assisted Brig. Gen. Funston in. the capture of Jkgolnaldo. He also . ac companied' General Leonard Wood to Moose Dahoe, .- wMu - the American but that they all maintain the rates fixed by the Dean schedule. It is this fact that has caused such a howl to go up all over the state against high insurance rates. Since the temporary restraining ord er was issued by the court here Satur day afternoon, the Indianapolis local fire inspection bureau has not done any Inspecting, for' to do so would be a violation of the restraining order and would make the person doing it liable to punishment for contempt of court. It was said at the inspection office yesterday evening that no daily re ports of policies written had been re ceived from agents and) that none will be received from them until after the Injunction case filed by Attorney Gen era! Bingham is settled. This means of course, that if the agents are still writing business they have to. send their reports direct to the home offi ces of their companies without inspec tion by any local inspector. As to the Rates. And the further question arises whether any agent has any right to issue a policy 'at the rates fixed by the Dean schedule while the restraining order is In force. It is pointed oat by some lawyers that when an agent writes a policy at the rates fixed by :iD? (OTS IM LOST III COMITY Voting Machine Agent Points Out Results of the Pres ent System.
