IS ILL BUT HE H1TEN0S 10 SEEFESTiVAL Chief Executive Is Confident That by October, He Will Be Feeling in Best Possible Condition. INDIANA EXECUTIVE A HAY FEVER VICTIM Thomas R. Has Made Mighty Hit by Declining to Make Trip Because Wife Couldn't Accompany Him. fPalladium Special Indianapolis, Ind., Sept 21. Gover nor Marshall has had to cancel two speaking engagements for this week on account of his health. He had prom ised to speak at the annual meeting of the County Commissioners' association at Terre Haute on Wednesday and at the national convention of the tax league at Louisville, next Friday, but both dates have been called off. Governor Marshall is not down sick, but his physician, Dr. Paige advised him yesterday, that he is suffering from hay fever and bronchitis and that for this reason he ought not to try to make any speeches until after froat comes. The governor is at his office as usual, though suffering the agony that goes with hay fever, and he will go to Terre Haute and mingle with the county commissioners from over the state tomorrow, but he will not make any speech to them. He will not go to Louisville at all. May Prevent Speeches. It is likely that the hay fever and bronchitis will prevent the governor from making speeches at several places where he has accepted invitations to speak before frost can reasonably be expected. But he is determined to fill all of the engagements that he possibly can. One of bis important speeches is to be made before the Sunday Even ing club in Chicago, and another Is the one he has promised to make at the Fall Festival at Richmond, but the lat ter does not take place until In Octo ber, and it is believed he will be all right by that time. The governor has made a mighty hit with his letter declining to make the trip to New Orleans. He said . In hi3 letter of declination that Inasmuch aj no arrangements were made for the wives of the accompanying governors to go with them on the steamboat from St. Louis to New Orleans, and as Mrs. Marshall had been with him in all of his campaign, his constant companion, V aA nut hum tn orrk withruit tier Hn Intimated In the letter that he would rather be with her than with the pres ident and a bunch of governors. This bit of domestic sentiment has percolat ed through the entire country and has reached New York. Yesterday Gover nor Marshall received a telegram from Joe Weber, formerly of the comedy firm of Weber and Field, In which Weber congratulated him on his letter, Weber, In the telegram, offered the governor a box at English's theater for his show, the Crisis, which is at this theater this week, and the gover nor has accepted. Regarding a Parole. A few days ago the governor had un der consideration the case of a man who had violated his parole. It wits based on a letter which he received from an undertaker, In which it was stated that the man had broken into the undertaker's establishment and stolen something. For this reason, he said, the man ought to be returned to the prison. The governor wrote back to the undertaker and told him he did not see that this made much difference. "As far as the crime is concerned," he wrote, "I do not think it is in 1: with the crime of a man who buys a coffin for eight dollars and sells it to a poor man for eighty dollars." That was the last heard of the com plaint from the undertaker. The governor has come out strong against the proposed improvement of Inland waterways. He gave out au interview yesterday in which he says that the people should go slow In this You May Not Need to Change Now But when the necessity of a change Is pressed harder on you "by the action of coffee on your nerves, heart and stomach, of course you'll be farther down the hill. Coffee may act slowly in some cases. It does act sure In 4 out of 5. When you get too- bad off, quit coffee and use IPdDSTHM "Tfcm's a Cessna" Postum Cereal Company, Ltd., Battle Creek. Mich.

He says he has looked up the history of such things in Indiana and finds that during the twenty years preceding the year 1850, Indiana spent $8,000,000 on canals and other waterways improvements which were estimated to cost on completion about $30,000,000, and that in a few year3 the railroads came along and killed off the water transportation, causing a total loss to the state of the amount It has spent. He says he fears that the tame thing would be true if it were tried again. The railroads, he says. would be the death of anything of that kind. DEEP SEATED COUGH CURED IN 5 HOURS. New Home-Made Syrup. (Cut this out.) From Boston Press. Progress in medical earn pounds never ceases, and now it is stated by a prominent medical man that any deep-seated cough or cold on the lungs can be actually cured in five hours by the clock. Opium and mor phine have been resorted to in the past, as relief measures. But now it is learned that the system must be treated to rid it of inflammation and congestion. A tonic laxative cough syrup does the work so quickly and thoroughly as to be almost magical. What heretofore has taken weeks to cure can be accomplished in hours. Get this formula filled or mix it at home and always keep it on hand: One-half ounce fluid wild cherry bark, one ounce compound essence cardiol and three ounces syrup white pin compound. Shake the bottle and take twenty drops every half hour tor four hours. Then take one-half to one tea- spoonful three or four times a diay until the system is purified and toned up.. Give children less according to age. One filling will usually cure a whole family, as the dose is small. The first process of making soda on an extensive scale was discovered by Nicholas Leblanc, a French chemist, in 1701. y avoid I troubles Controller Parry Recommends Reduction In Rate for Lighting the Streets He Points Out That the Municipal Plant Will Pay Off Its Debt to the City Next Year, and In Future Receipts Will Be Used for Plant and Not Benefit General Fund Owing to the splendid showing that 1 the municipal elctric lighting and power plant has br en making the past few. years it is now in the best kind of financial condition and, according to Controller Parry, in a report submitted to council last evening, it will be able to pay . back to the general fund of the city next year the last of the money borrowed from the city for the main tenance and upkeep. After this year the plant will staLd firmly on its own feet, Mr. Parry assures the public, and It will no longer be necessary for the city to coddle and curse It. After the last cent borrowed from the city has been returned to the gen eral fund, it will then be necessary, under the state law, to place the plant's receipts in a seperate fund, which money can be used for the ben efit of the plant alone. Mr. Parry points out that if these receipts could be merged into the general fund the city could easily reduce the tax rate from $1.10 to 90 cents, but the law forbids this. Therefore Mr. Parry recommends that, so the public may reap some tax reduction benefit from the plant in the future, the city reduce the rate for. street lighting to $48 per arc light per annum. He points out that, this would be a reduction of 36 percent from the rate now paid and a reduction of 20 percent "from the price proposed by the private corporation which was de sirous of negotiating with the city for the "municipal light plant some months ago." Mr. Parry's 1910 budget and recommendations is as follows : REPORT OF CONTROLLER. Richmond, Ind., Sept. 15, 1909. Hon, Richard Schillinger, Mayor of City of Richmond. Ind.: Zl hand you herewith my estimate, by items, of the appropriations neces sary for the use of the city during the year 1910, and with it also an estimate of the city's receipts during 1910 and my recommendation for the tax rate for 1909.

VERY IIIDIGIIM1T Are Raising Big Kick on the Kind of Improvement the City Is Now Making on That Thoroughfare. CHARGE CONTRACTORS VIOLATE A CONTRACT Allege Only Half Inch Cement Being Used Instead of Inch And They Also Hint at Other Things. Residents along South A from Sec ond to Twelfth streets are up in arms against the kind of work the city is having done towards Improving the sidewalks, curbs and gutters on that street. It is alleged by the resident property owners that the contractors, Boots and Gant, of Greenfield, are not doing the work according to the con tract, and that the kind of the work being conducted, is decidedly unsatis factory. According to a statement made by several property owners on South A street, this morning, the contractors are only putting on one-half inch of cement facing in places, when the con tract calls for an inch. It is further alleged that the gravel foundation is not being properly laid. The speci fications state that eight inches of gravel and six inches of concrete must be laid, rammed and flooded. It is as serted that the contractors have in certain places along the street, placed huge holders in the foundation and have thrown gravel on top of them without flooding or pounding the grav el down between the crevices. In this way, it is said, the contractors make a great saving on gravel at the expense of a poor bed. The contract calls for two part sand, five part gravel and one part cement and. it is declared by residents who have watched the mix ing, that part of the contract is being violated also. City Has Inspector. It is claimed that the work is caus ing general dissatisfaction and, while the city has an inspector in the person of Walter Bundy, to look after the matter and see that the contract is ful filled, conditions do not Improve. In several instances, it is said, the atten tion of the contractors have been called to the alleged illegitimate methods em ployed, and the fact that not enough For Appropriations. In addition to this, some $4,000 will need be raised to pay appropriations made in this year which cannot be paid until 1910 making a total of $156,000 which, In my judgment, re quired for the necessary uses of the city during the year 1910. To meet this, we can depend upon from $16,500 to $17,000 from sundry sources other than taxes liquor and other licenses, market rents, etc. Our assessed valuation this year is ................. $14,399,455 Less mortgage exemptions 486,950 Leaving a net balance of. . .$13,912,505 upon which to levy taxes, and a tax of one (1) percent lor the general fund, with 50 cents (50c) for each poll would, I am sure, raise the necessary amount. To this must be added five cents (5c) for the sinking fund, as is made mandatory by. law, thus making our total tax rate $1.05. a reduction of five cents (5c) from that of the last few years. Plants. Fine Showing. You will notice that no mention has been made of the municipal electric light plant, either as to receipts or appropriations during 1910. During the several years since the plant was inaugurated, the light plant, as a de partment of the citv, has been indebt ed to the city's general fund for money advanced it. by the city from time to time. This debt, I think, will be en tirely repaid to the city's general fund before 1910 and when that is done, the law makes it compulsory for the re ceipts of the municipal plant to be placed In a separate fund and to be used for the light plant alone. If these net receipts could be merged in the general fund as heretofore, we could I think, easily and safely make our rate of tax not more than ninety cents (90c) on each one hundred dollars of taxables assessed. On the other hand, if the receipts from the light plant continue to increase as they have done the present year, a fund would soon be accumulated larger than, in all probability, would be necessary, and at the price heretofore paid the light plant for its street lighting, our tax rate would be necessarily increas ed instead of lowered as herein recom mended. Hence, I think it wise to re duce the rate which the city will pay for its light, both because it is the only way that every tax payer can feel the benefit and because 1 doubt the right of a city to charge itself for the benefit of a municipal plant more than It practically costs. After used. The contractor are alleged to have said that It didn'i make any difference whether a half an inch or an inch were used, that it wad just as good. The residents, howev er, couldn't see It In the same light as the contractors, and were insistent In their demands for the full amount of cement as specified in the contract. After much parleying between the two, the required inch of cement was placed, it is said. The same contractors did the work on South Seventh street, south of E. and it is declared their work in tha: section of the city was even more un satisfactory than that of South A street. Their contract price for ce ment sidewalks on South A was 5? cents per lineal foot and for straight curb and gutters, 54 cents per lineal foot. This is considerably below the usual price paid by the city for suca work. A UIIIOUEJUTFORM Candidate for Mayor Promis es to Perform Mar riages for $1.00. SERVES FOURTEEN YEARS (American News Service) Springfield, O., Sept. 21. "If I am elected I will perform marriages for $1.00 apiece." This is the political platform of T. J. Montgomery, candidate for mayor of Enon, a small village near here, who served as mayor for 14 years, and is willing to be mayor again, so he says, only if he is elected unanimous ly. He daclares that his matrimonial platform will cause his unanimous election. Montgomery believes in the Roose velt idea and is a total abstainer. "I haven't touched a drop for forty years," said he. "Yes, I am married and have eight children." A TAK SOIT IS FILED Suit was entered in the circuit court today by Charles B. Shiveley, guardian of the late Mary L. Martin, against De mas Coe, county auditor, and Albert Albertson, county and city treasurer of Richmond to enjoin them from collect ing city tax from the guardian. Mn. Martin owned a fair sized estate. It is set forth in the complaint that Mrs. Martin was not a resident of the city while an inmate of Eastern Indiana Hospital for the Insane and therefore her guardian is exempted from paying city tax. T. J. Study, city attorney. fileda demurrer alleging that the facts were in sufficient. careful consideration, I am satisfied that $48 per year per arc light is an ample price and have, therefore, cal culated at that rate in my recommen dation as to the appropriation for city lighting. This, you will notice, is a reduction of 36 percent from the rate now paid and of 20 percent from the price proposed by the private corpor ation which was desirous of negotiat ing with the city for the municipal light plant some months ago. This price, too, I think, compares favorab ly with almost all other cities which contract for an all night schedule especially where the light and power must be manufactured with coal ship ped several hundred miles. Should the business of the munici pal light plant continue to increase as during the past three years or even a less ratio, the net receipts during 1910 will doubtless be not far from $20,000, counting our city arc lights at $48 per annum, after paying all claims, including bond interest, which can in any way be chargeable to the plant, and I think it wise to begin in January next to divide these net re ceipts into two funds one of not more than ten (10) percent of the net re ceipts each month to constitute a "working fund," that something may be on hand to enable the managers to be sufficiently independent to buy supplies in a quantity if at any time it seemed a great saving could be made, and to discount bills, etc. The balance of the net receipts each month say, ninety (90) percent should, I think, be set aside as a special sinking fund for rebuilding, and depreciation. and to build the additional "unit' which win be required within five years if the business continues ot in crease. This fund should, like the city's other sinking fund, draw inter est at not less than three (3) percent per annum and should not be drawn upon for any purpose as long as there is money in the working fund to meet the demand. t After a period of three years there would be more than enough accumu lated in this fund to build a new unit of greater capacity than the last one. if needed, and after three to five years from this time, the price could be safely reduced to the patrons something I do not think it wise to do at this time. But 1 do thins: the plant may be safely left to itself, so far as appropriations for the coming year are concerned. Respectfully, WEBSTER PARRY. Controller.
