Be is sur vived by his wife. Mrs. Ella B. Peck. one son, Roy E.; his mother, Mrs." S. D. Peck of Franklin, Ind.; one brother L. E.

While engaged in : painting the resi dence of Miss Sarah' Sanderson North Sixteenth street June 15, Mr. Peck went up on a ladder to arrange the painter's scaffold. The painter's hook became loosened from the roof and dropped, knocking Mr. Peck from his position on the ladder. He fell a distance of twenty feet alighting on his head. Besides the injury to the brain, he suffered a broken collar bone, four broken ribes, a dislocated shoulder blade and bodily bruises. He was taken to the hospital where he lingered between life and death for many days. Waa Delirious. Much of the time he was delirious and could not speak above a whisper.

ITALIAN KING TO SEND DELEGATES Will Visit Colonists Now Set tled in North and South America. BOTH OF ROYAL FAMILY WANT TO RECOGNIZE THE EXPA TRIATES SO THAT THEIR LOVE FOR THE MOTHER COUNTRY WILL NOT DIE. ... (American News Service) Rome, July 30. King Victor today intimated that he will accede to the expressed wishes of parliament and ap point the princes of the royal house to officially visit the Italian colonists of North and South America. The Prince of Udine who also numbers among his titles that of Duke of Genoa undoubtedly will be chosen to make the South American tour and another member of the royal family will leave later for North America. The' vast number of citizens that Italy has furnished to the Americas, almost equal perhaps to the home pop ulation, has long made it seem desirar ble to Italian statemen that the state should recognise them in a manner to keeplive their loyalty to the moth er land and dispose them to give her the necessary aid if the time shall come when she shall need it It is to serve this purpose that ' the royal princes are to be sent. The mission of the royal envoys will be to the Italians in the countries they will visit Undoubtedly they will be permitted to recognise and. respond to honors that will he showered upon them, , but their first attention must be given to their expatriated country men. The Itinerary of the prince who is assigned to North America will In clude all the principal cities and many of the lesser ones. WILL CHANGE TIME T. H., I. & E.

INSTRUCTIONS TO JUDGE HE INFORMS HIM THAT FISTIC BATTLES ARE BEING PULLED OFF AND HAS ORDERED HIM TO STOP THEM. Indianapolis, July 30. Governor Marshall Is sore because he says the Terre Haute police did not do their duty in suppressing the prize fight which was held there a few nights ago. He has called the attention of Judge Fortune of the Vigo circuit court to the fact that prise fights are being held In Terre Haute, and has instructed him to put a stop to them in the future. He has even offered the judge the services of a detach ment of the Indiana National Guard to enforce his orders and to enforce the law if the police will not do their duty. Sent Burt New. The governor sent Burt New, his legal clerk, to Terre Haute the other day to investigate the report that Judge Fortune has issued an injunc tion restraining the Terre Haute po lice from interfering with the fight. New found that such an order had been made but he induced the judge to change it so as to give the police the right to attend the fight and to stop it if it became a prize fight such as is prohibited by the law. And the police went to the fight but did noth ing, although it became a very pro nounced prize fight. The governor says he will stop prize fighting anywhere in the state and he proposes to follow the plan of operat ing through the judge of the circuit court of the county in which a fight is advertised The case at Terre Haute is entirely different from the one at Hammond recently, where some one sent him a clipping from a Chicago paper, and a letter containing infor mation that a fight was to be pulled off at Hammond. In that case there was no injunction. In fact the fight, it was afterward learned was sched uled to take place across the state line In Illinois, and therefore was not in the jurisdiction of the Indiana au thorities. But these two cases show the energy with which Governor Mar shall is going after the prize fight game in Indiana. If he keeps up his present gait the fighting game will soon be a dead one in this state. It Told the Truth. A countryman on a visit to Glasgow while walking along Argyll street reading the signboards and the tickets in the shop windows said to his cem psnion: "Ho can a' thae bam shops be the best and cheapest? Every yln o' them says that, aad the same wi the clothes shops tae. They are jlst a lot o leears." They continued along the street un til, coming opposite a plumber's shop with a big bill in the window with the words "Cast Iron Sinks" printed in large letters on It. he exclaimed: "Well, Jock, here's yln that tells the truth al ony rate. But any danged fool ken? that cast iron wad sink." Lightning Chans. The three-year-eld boy on the sra seat in the street car turned suddenly to look out of the window, thereby wiping his muddy shoes on the light colored trousers of the middle aged man sitting next te bim.
