Whether the Marlon counts grand jury will do any better than the St. Joseph, county grand jury In investigating prize fights remains to be seen, but . it is working on the jobmd the prosecut ing attorney says he "Will go the limit in presenting testimony to the grand Jury. V.v.'- ; ' Much surprise was shown in this city yesterday when it became known that the Rev. Joshua Stansfield, pas tor' of the Meridtant Street Methodist church, the most aristocratic church in the city, had been summoned to ap pear before the grand Jury to testify. It became known that he was to be asked about prize fights, for several months ago Mr. Stansfield and two or three other ministers, members of the Indianapolis Protestant Ministers associationattended a boxing contest in this city, for the purpose of satis fying themselves whether It was a boxing match or a prize fight 'They had been conducting a campaign against; the. fights that; were being pulled off in this city, but without ef fect, and they took this course to show that they; were in earnest They announced that they would be ready to testify if the grand jury wished to hear from them, but nothing was done along that line until in the last few days.,.:. - . , , . Knockouts Were Common. The fights that were formerly pull ed off in this city were "dingers." A knockout was the common result, and they were usually; the real, thing. But this season -there have not been any knockouts. .Neither hat there been any decision in any of the bouts this season. They go ten rounds, or what ever number of rounds the bout is scheduled for, but the referee only takes the fighters out in the alley af terward and telle them which one was the winner. ; ' "When Governor Marshall wrote a letter to the prosecutor of St. Joseph and other counties Instructing them to investigate - the reports . of prize ftghts he wrote one also to Prosecutor . ttooton, of Marion county. That is why the grand jury is now looking into the matter. . Call Sporting Editors. Besides the Rev, Joshua Stansfield. the grand jury has called the sporting editors of the Indianapolis papers, and they all testified yesterday afternoon. What they, told the grand jury is. not known." but they i were all at all of the prise fights that have been held here, and it Is presumed that they gave the grand jury some valuable in- formation Public sentiment in this city ia di vided on ; the ; subject of boxing matches. The same element that is backing the dry liquor fight is behind the crusade against . boxing matches. Pcsfc Popular sk. 10c; Large Family ,-, alas, 11a., , A , Call by Grocers. I J ." - Leads Fight For Son 's Freedom GENERAL PETER HAINS. The same element has even tried to blot out the social evil in this, city, which, as all know, is the most dan gerous but the most impossible of all to wipe out. The same element fought Sunday base ball and tried to prevent the passage of the Sunday base ball law by the legislature, and it Is now talking of attempting to break down the law in the courts by having it declared unconstitutional. Attempted Too Much. There are a good many persons here who believe sincerely that if this reform element had confined its la bors to" one or two evils instead of trying to regulate everything at one and the same time,' It would have ac complished much in the reform line. But it has not. chosen to follow that plan, and the result is that the reform ers have been defeated at every turn of the road. They have tried to cover too much territory, like the man who boasted that he could whip any man in the state. After he had been un mercifully walloped by a man .from a neighboring township he admitted that he had covered too much terri tory in his challenge. LOCAL POSTOFFICE MEETSWITH FAVOR Hamilton, Ohio, Wants Some Improvements Mads. Minor changes will be recommend ed in the Hamilton federal building by Postmaster O. V. Parrish and his as sistant,' H. Schell, who Inspected the local postofflce yesterday. f; The changes will be in accord , with those made here since the construction of the building. The Hamilton postof flce does a business approximating $80,000 a year, a considerable portion of which Is due to the fact that a dis tillery at that place does a land office business In "dry territory.
