E. Roney, Insurance Agent, Uses His Fists With Good Effect on Stranger. ALTERCATION OVER RENT MOORE ATTEMPTED TO HELP OUT A TENANT, MRS. MARY LEWIS, WHICH RONEY RESENT ED BOTH WERE GIVEN FINE. E. E. Roney, the insurance agent, and William Moore engaged in a fistic encounter yesterday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Mary Lewis over 912 Main street, which resulted in the ar rest of both parties and a black eye for Moore. About 2 o'clock Mr. Roney went to the home of Mrs. Lewis to collect some back rent. An altercation over the amount of the rent arose between the two in which Moore, who up to that time had been an uninterested spectator, sought to interfere to his sorrow. Mr., Roney took exceptions to some of the remarks directed at him by Moore. Moore also felt his angry passions rise, and after handing each other a few that could scarcely be termed love taps, and incidently mak ing so much racket that Patrolman Vogelsong, who chanced to be pass ing was attracted to the scene the two were finally separated. No sooner had Vogelsong turned his back to ad dress Mr. Roney, than Moore, think ing he saw an excellent chance to make his getaway. Jumped out of the second story window, and on to the roof below, a distance of perhaps fif teen feet. Entangled in Skylight. Moore's feet then became entangled in a skylight with disastrous results to the panes but he finally managed to extract himself and jump into the alley before Vogelsong appeared. Vog elsong was in hot pursuit, however, end beat a marathon down the alley In a manner that would make Johnny Hayes sit up and take notice. Vogel song proved to be the best sprinter of . the two and the race was destined to be -of short" duration. The b!fc-po liceman, puffing and blowing, caught up with Moore when North A street was reached, and the man was taken to police headquarters. In the city court this afternoon Ro ney and Moore were each fined 1 and costs. ABOUT $100,000,000 Fortune of "Rail King" Invest ed for the Most Part In Stocks and Bonds. ESTATE TO BE INTACT? THE FINANCIER IS BELIEVED TO HAVE ARRANGED ALL OF HIS AFFAIRS, EXPECTING AN EARLY DEATH. New York. Sept. 10. The estimate of E. H. Harriman's wealth ranged today all the way from $50,000,000 to $200,000,000. Those most likely to have the best information said it was probably In the neighborhood of $100,- 000,000 and that it consists chiefly of railroad stocks and bonds. Mr. Harriman was a large owner of securities of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific systems, of the At chison, Topeka and Santa Fe road, Baltimore and Ohio, Illinois Central, New York Central, the Erie, Delaware and Hudson, Pacific Mall Steamship company, Brooklyn Rapid Transit, and of the Wells-Fargo Express company. He was credited with being the larg est individual stockholder in the last named corporation, which recently acquired a virtual monopoly of the express business in Mexico. Small Portion in Real Estate. Mr. Harriman's real estate holdings are supposed to be less than $5,000,000 in value, his chief property being the estate at Arden. " What disposition Mr. Harriman made of his property can only be con jectured. The only charity he was known to be deeply interested in was a boys' club on the east side, to which he gave a $25,000 home. It is the belief of Mr. Harriman's associates, but they are not in a posi tion to make the statement aa a fact, that some time ago. when he realized the probability of his early death, he trusteed , all of his security holdings with the stipulation that they be held intact for a period of years. This would prevent them being thrown up on the market at any time in the near future. . THE WEATHER PROPHET. INDIANA Partly cloudy . (-t variable winds.

Montreal, Que., Sept 10t Because they refused to obey an order giv?n to them directly from the pope of Rome, .through their archbishop, twenty-six priests of the College of Marie ville have been excommunicated. About a year ago when the Marie ville college building was burned re quest was made for permission to es tablish the college at St. Johns. The request was refused. An appeal to the holy see at Rome resulted in a sec ond refusal.

LUTHERAN LEADER CRITICISES ELIOT President of Church Council Pays Respects to Har vard Educator. DEPLORES TREND OF DAY THE ANNUAL REPORT SHOWS A BIG GAIN BY THAT DENOM INATION IN THE LAST TEN YEARS. Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 10. The feature of the meeting of the general council of the Evangelical Lutheran church was a sermon by Dr. Theodore Schmauk, president of the council, in wbich he attacked Charles W. Bitot, former president of Harvard. He said " 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God,' Is the word of President Eliot. 'Blessed are the keen in mind, for they shall find God to be a natural product of the human soul. The modem rationalist says:. '"We are nfctrto preach salvation, but take, care of bodies of men now,1 and this view of the church seems to be indorsed by the new bureau appoint ed by President Roosevelt for the up lifting of social communities. ' "Tne new religion, according to President Eliot, is one that will not be based upon authority, which-Is to say that man's own will and his own devel opment are to be the supreme motive and law of life, and that God's name is not the primary thing to be hallow ed, and his kingdom is not the primary thing to come and his will is not the primary thing to be done on earth." The president's report showed that the Lutheran church now has 2,250,000 members in the churches and 1,500.000 children in the Sunday schools. The growth for the last ten years was 71 per cent. Dr. Schmauk was elected president for the fourth time. LAUD VALUE REPORT Tne report of tne appraisers ap pointed by Judge Fox to place a value on the land of Robert E.

Councilman Bar tel, at council meeting Wednesday night, proposed that the city officials give the theaters a license to operate on Sunday afternoon, providing the proprietors of these establishments would in return, use the electrical pro duct of the municipal light plant. The proposition waa referred to the board of works and is now before this body for consideration. The question of opening the theaters on Sunday afternoons for the purpose of giving good moral shows, meets with the approval of some of the lib erals. Their attitude toward the proposition, is that with the widening of the gap in the city's lid In respect to the five-cent theaters would result in the tipping of the lid In other re spects."" ; The managements of the higher priced theaters will no doubt claim the privilege of opening their play houses on Sunday afternoon, if the city per mits the five cent theaters to open.

Wade, pastor of the First M. E. church, and newly elected presi dent of the Ministerial association, was very emphatic In his opposition and his attitude toward Mr. Barters prop osition. He classed Mr. Bartel's action as a disgraceful one to set forth, and was surprised that it should come from -the source it did. He did not care to express any opinion for any organiza tion, and his interview waa entirely of a personal nature. He also said that the proposition was one of dollars and cents and entirely against the preser vation of the peaceable Sabbath. The present Sabbath is worth much more to Richmond's workmen and citizens in general, than the few dollars and cents which Councilman Battel's prop osition would bring into the city treas ury, according to the Rev. Mi. Wade. He also said that it would be just as reasonable to allow the saloons to open on Sunday, as in his mind, one violation waa Just as bad as the other. Mr. Wade concluded by stating the members of his congregation would oppose the proposition, judging from the number who have already spoken to him about It "I could scarcely believe that such a proposition would come from the source which it did. I am opposed to such a project, as it Is not in harmony with the Sabbath day and its purposes, said Rev. C Huber, pastor of the St. Paul's Lutheran church, and prominent as a worker in the state an tl -saloon league. Continuing, he said. The proprietors might have made the prop osition, but I am surprised that It should be presented by a councilman. I do not think that it is a sane project. I believe that the people generally and members of St. Paul's Lutheran church will oppose it. Not only will the church people oppose It, but I believe that those who do not class themselves as church members will he classed in the opposition. Any such amusement on Sunday afternoon would certainly lower the moral standing of the city. he concluded. A Bartering Proposition. Rev. T. J. Graham, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, said that he could hold only one opinion and that would be the same as he should expert all other ministers to hold, and that was that he was against It- The Rev. Mr. Graham says It smacks too much of the business proposition of the city authorities saying, "you help me and we will help you. St. Andrew's church members will no doubt oppose the opening of the theaters on Sunday afternoon, said the -Rer. Father RoelL pastor of the church . this noon. The , Rer.
