One of the moat Important advance
etepa toward more efficient police and
Are protection in Richmond la now
under consideration by the board of
works. It la the "patrol flashlight"
system manufactured by the Dean
Electric company of Elyrla, O. By
t3s system a series of boxes are plac
ed oyer the city, several In each dis
trict Inside the box, behind power
ful red lenses, la an electric light,
which may be seen from all parte of
the police district.
At police headquarters there Is a
witch board operated by the desk
sergeant. This switch is In direct
connection with all the police boxes
and; by pushing the button of any
box number the sergeant turns on
the light, calling the patrolman of
the district to the telephone) which la
inside) the box. By a proper arrange
ment of boxes, the central headquar
ters la la two minute connection wth
very officer on the force, even In the
furthest districts of the city. In case
of a riot when all the officers are
wanted, svery district la given the sig
nal ,
Can B Yield Reserves.
. Thus the entire police force on act
ive duty may also be used aa a re
serve force, and the necessity of hav
ing bicycle men at headquarters to
anawer emergency calls, a matter
which baa been carefully considered
by the police commissioners, la abol
ished. Also In case of emergency
calls the patrolman notified Is always
within a abort distance of the trouble.
Besides the emergency call, these
boxes are used for the regular hourly
reports of patrolmen, for which the
regular city system of telephones Is
now used, and for Ire alarms. The
system la considered very compact
and It Is believed by Its promoters,
will make an - Innovation la police
work in this country.
William Bailey of the Richmond
Horn Telephone company, presented
the proposition In an Informal way to
Mayor Zimmerman, President Homer
Hammond and City Engineer Charles
in the boards of works chamber this
morning. The expense of installing
the) system. Mr. Bailey believes, will
b reasonable, considering the extent
and careful labor required to install
May Be Too Costly.
"It would be a mighty Ine thing."
declared Hammond this morning, "but
11a afraid the expense of Installing It
wou!4 bo pretty heavy for. Richmond.
It will be taken under careful consid
eration, after Mr. Bailey submits his
exact figures."
Mr. Hammond also said that he be
lieved Richmond la large enough to
need each a system It its installation
it possible from a financial standpoint
Tie system of reports now in vogue
is unsatisfactory, but for emergency
calls the system Is not so satisfactory.
There) are two red electric light bulbs

of Eighth and Main streets, which

Two Legal Separations Were
Granted and Another
Case Considered.
Granting two divorces and continu
ing another, the reputation of Sat
urday being "divorce day" in the cir
cuit court was well sustained. Clara
B. Lundy, was divorced from William
M. Lundy while Charles E. Embry re
ceived his freedom from Nannie M.
Embry. The case of Malinda A. vs.
William M. Donahue was continued
' Ten short months In 1905 were suf
ficient to convince the Lundys. who
lived at-Williamsburg, that . Cupid
made a mistake in ; their union.: Al
though the , separation ; occurred in
January five years ago. the wife did
not apply for divorce until recently
and her petition was sustained by the
court, although he , agreed that the
husbapd was entitled to the divorce
aa much as Mrs. Lundy.
The Lundy woman was about forty
four years old and her divorced hus
band about fifty' when they were un
ited. Both had children by a former
marriage. Mrs. Lundy bad a ten-year-old
daughter and according to, her
evidence it was over the daughter
that the first differences arose. Mrs.
Lundy said her husband wanted her
to abandon the child. She alleged
cruel and inhuman treatment, aver
ring that- he cursed her, displayed a
revolver and threatened to kill her
and her daughter. She also said he
-was so cruel to -leave. heror- a
week with only a dollar to purchase
supplies. : .; r ;rr''M?"Tv.
Alimony was asked by the plaintiff
and inasmuch as she had furnished
house, her claim for alimony was not
contestetd. She will receive about
half of the amount which he will
receive from the estate of his deceas
ed mother. Lundy was not in court
being represented by an attorney.
The Embry b are colored. Embry
charged his wife with cruel and in
human treatment, infidelity and de
sertion in his testimony before the

County Health Officer Shows
that Contagious Diseases
Were Prevalent.
So prevalent was diphtheria in
Cambridge City in the month of Octo
ber aa to almost approach the stage
of an epidemic Tbe cases were all
somewhat mild and ' no deaths re
sulted but in Clay township ' there
were two cases of this disease, result
ing in one death. . The report of coun
ty health officer Dr. J. E. King for
the month shows that there were two
cases in Wayne township and two in
Richmond. :;-v
Diphtheria was by far the most
common disease. There were seven
cases of typhoid fever reported In the
rural districts, one of the patients dy
ing. A case of smallpox was . report
ed near. Greensfork. There was a
case of chlckenpoz arid three of scar
let fever, all the patienta living in

' There were twenty-one deaths re
ported to the county health officer.
Twelve were females and nine' males.
Acute enteritis caused " the ; death of

Keep Senator A. J. Beveridge on
the firing line. - ,.
With no attempt' at oratory, with
out flourish of trumpet or ' the dls-'
charge of red fire,. Gifford. Pinchot,
former national forester, spoke at the
Coliseum Friday -night making one of
the most ' conrftfetng ppeahT--for -the
support of Senator Albert J.. Bever
idge that, has been made : locally in
the present, campaign. The , large au
dience that heard s Mr. : Pinchot was
greatly impressed by his simplicity of
manner, his directness of address and
the ability with which he made plain
to his hearers the three or four im
portant points that be was seeking to
impress. Not a word was said about
politics in the ordinary sense, and
but for the fact that the great pro
gressive leaders to whom he paid such
high compliments are republicans, it
was scarcely possible to tell that this
speech had anything to do with one
of the most crucial campaigns in the
country's history. Neither the word
republican nor democrat was used
throughout the speech, but there . was
no one in-the addience but .knew full
well just what was and who was
meant . " ;
When in the. course of a summing
up of. the present Insurgent tmove-
ment in which' he mentioned the
names of the great leaders,' Dolliver,
Cummings, Lafollette, Bristow, Mur
dock, Poindexter ' and others, ' and in
cluded in this line of heroic fighters
for the public good, the name of Sen
ator :- Beveridge, the audience showed
its approval -with prolonged applause.
His tribute to the senior senator from
Indiana was sincere and convincing,
because Mr. Pinchot has been intim
ately associated with Senator Bever
idge for: years.
. Is No Keener Fighter.
He declared there is no keener light
er, no harder worker In the list of in
surgent republicans than Mr. Bever
idge, and he has had occasion to ob
serve the Indiana man all through this
war and has watched the struggle he
has made against the beef trust for
conservation and in behalf of child
labor. "I came to Indiana to tell the
people of ! this state that Beveridge
can be trusted," declared Mr. Pinchot
"for he has been, tried and ' made
good." . .
Much of the address was devoted to
showing the part that the special in
terests take in politics and how they
seek legislation ; that . will result to
their good, and to the disadvantage of
the people as a whole. He gave many
strong examples ,of the plans that
have been followed by the interests
to get control of the natural resources
pointing to fraudulent operations un
der the ; land and stone laws, the
homestead , law, the swamp land 'law
and the desert land law. He did not
refer - at " length : to the coal lands in
Alaska, an attempt to grab which was
made by the Guggenheim-Morgan syn
dicate, as the facta surrounding this
and Mr. Pinchofs part in it is already
well known to the . public. From all
the facts and conditions he deduced
one essential fact and that Is the peo
ple of the United States are not mere
ly tired of the special Interests ' but
they are terribly indignant and angry.
They are determined that the wrongs
that have been perpetrated must atop
the special , interests must be put
out of politics. , . ' ' ,
... How They Play the "Game."
To show bow fully the special inter
ests take part in the political game,
Mr. Pinchot related the circum
stances surrounding bis efforts to get
legislation that was of value to the
national forestry department Here
he found opposition on the sert of
certain senators and looking further
on he found thia opposition originated
with the men who controlled the sen
ators, and who believed their personal -Interests
would be affected by the
proposed legislation. He found tt ne
cessary to go, to the ofaces of these
corporations in New York City In or
der to get a bill passed1 thrc2uthe
United States setvatel iXa iUbl to con
sult the man who pulled the-strfng to '
make the satorhce "before the at
titude of. the senator .toward; s pro
posed . law for the benefit of the great
American nation could pe changed!
"Such a condition, aocb a humiliat
ing necessity, Mr. Pinchot ' declared,
"is a burning disgrace and an abomin
able outrage. Either, aald he, ' "the '
practice must stop or we must cease
being a free people, Congressmen are
far too much under the control of the
men representing tbe special interests
and far too little under the control of
the people who aent them to Wash
ington." ' - -
"Tlu-re are two kinds of men In re
gard to this situation' said the speak
er, "One who knows the condition and
lets it -go, and the other who knows it
and is pledged to fight It and either
drive the special Interests out or- be
driven out by the special interests.
The latter have staked their political
life ' on the outcome. Some time the
public ; will appreciate the work ;of
these men . for. their task is as impor
tant to my mind as was that of the
men j, who laid the foundation for this
government or those .who fought to
preserve it These . few men are de
termined, to . make . this a government
of the people and not government
merely for the benefit of those who
have some commercial end to gain."
. Beveridge Returns Cheek.
It was In this connection that he
paid a high '.tribute to Senator Bever
idge - and the other Insurgent leaders
and he told of Senator Beveridge re
turning a check that had come to bim
from some great corporation at the
very time when he was most "fa Heed
or money to carry on' his campaign.
"When a man does that kind of thing
and keeps It to himself, you may
know he is all righf said Mr. Pin
shot, "and : l know of few such in
stances. Beveridge is able and clean
and a skillful and an unrelenting fight
er. ' t -J-"' '. f'r:':.:::i",:'
: "The suggestion that Senator Bev
eridge be taken out of .politics and
replaced with a raw recruit it seems
to me, answers itself. - We need Bev
eridge. V Will you ; people : of Indiana
take" out of the ranks this man who'
has made good (cries of no!)? I-know
him -'through and through and believe'
in him. The people who' are making
this fight need Beveridge and If; you
believe in this fight against the spe
cial interests why take Beveridge off
the firing line? Why not 'give us the
help that he can give? Don't take'
Beveridge off the firing line
Conservation Problem.
- Mr. . Pinchers exposition of the con
servation problem was one of much
interest and it involves, he said, not
only a commercial, but a moral ques
tion as well He declared that the
country, is using timber three times
as fast as it can be produced end
that we are facing a timber famine.
He pointed out the necessity of con
sidering future generations in dealing
with the forests and the necessity of
making ample preparations for those
who, are to live lfty and a hundred
years hence. The same is true of the ,
coal and gas and other resources and
especially the water power, which ,
should not be given awsy-'br-a liberal -
