10 TO 12 SCORE
Difficult to Obtain Photograph of Wreck
Aided by Referee, DePauw
Piled Up 12 Points in First
Quarter Later Earlham

Great Crowd Witnessed the
Game and the Enthusiasm
Displayed by the Students
Was Inspiring.
Saturday la the last game of the sea.
on the Earlham football team went
down In defeat at the handa of De
Pauw, by score of 18 to 12. It was
known that this game would be the
game of the season and the largest
crowd of, recent years gathered to see
the game. By winning DePauw takes
the secondary state championship.
The game started with a klckoff by
DePauw. Earlham got the ball and
carried It 15 yards and lost It Then
the Methodists pushed the ball to the
20-yard line and Tucker, the DePauw
half back, carried the ball over the
Earlham line. Mul kicked goal.
Again DePauw kicked off. The
Quarkers carried the ball far into the
Methodist territory. The ball was lost
on a forward pass. The Methodists
fouled, causing a fumble on the part
of Earlham and Tucker got the ball
and ran 65 yards f6r a touchdown.
Referee Carr of the Ohio Stat uni
versity looking through his leather
glasses failed to see the foul and al
lowed the score. Mul kicked goal and
the first quarter ended 12 to 0 In De
Pauw's favor.
The Second Quarter.
The second quarter was character
ised by strong work of the Earlham
line. Time after time Stanley, Hugh
banks and Nelson broke through the
DePauw line to block a punt or to
taekle a runner. During the second
quarter the ball was in the Methodist
territory most of the time but time
was called without either team having
The third quarter opened with a de
cided brace-up on the part of the
Quakers. Reagan punted the ball far
Into the DePauw field and recovreed it
when the DePauw back fumbled on his
10-yard line. By some sensational line
bucks the ball was carried across the
Methodist line. Bruner kicked goal.
1 DePauw kicked off and . Brunner
caught the ball and carried it 15 yards.
On a fumbled punt by a DePauw back
Francis recovered the ball and ran
60 yards for a touchdown. Bruner
kicked goal. With the score a tie each
team put forth all its energy. By a
fluke the DePauw team scored an
'other touchdown and kicked goal and
the third quarter ended with the score
18 to 12.
No one scored in the last quarter.
The ball was carried back and forth
by punts and forward passes. Once
the ball was carried to the Earlham
5-yard line but by scrappy playing the
Quakers forced the ball out of danger
and Bear the Methodist goal. Time
waa called and the game ended 18 to
12 la DePauw'a favor.
Bruner's Last Game.
This game was the last one for
Captain Bruner as It Is his last year In
school. During the entire game he
waa the star of the Earlham team.
Reagan. Hughbanks and Francis also
showed up well throughout the game.
Each team showed much nervous
ness at 'times. Seeing old stars and
alumni on the side line worried the
local players and they showed the ef
fects of It.
The work of Referee Carr was de
cidedly "raw." both teams suffering
specially Earlham. One DePauw
player deliberately stole a ball from a
Quaker back, then ran for a touch
down. Carr Ignored this openly-made

In this wreck Engineer Bales of the passenger train waa killed and two other trainmen were seriously injured.
A Palladium photographer had a hard time In getting a view of the wreck. Railroad detectives tried to drive

At the end of the second week of
the union evangelistic meetings at the
East Main Street Friends' church It
is felt that much good has been ac
complished and that the coming week
will see a great deal more. Much of
the benefit that has resulted from the
meetings has come from the plan of
personal work and does not show In
the newspaper reports or in such a
way as to greatly impress the public.
Many of the personal workers' con
ferences have been attended by a
large number who have taken a deep
Mr. Mahy is somewhat of a pioneer
in the field of what might be termed
rational evangelism as contrasted with
the old time methods of undue excite
ment and sensationalism, and he ex
presses himself as very well pleased
with the work here. It will take
some time for the public to get ac
quainted with the new type of evange
list and to be attracted to the work.
Last evening an open-air meeting
was held on Main street and attracted
many people. Evangelist Mahy spoke
and much work of a personal nature
was done. Great audiences are ex
pected at both of the Important serv

Now Being Reminded to the

Washington, Nov. 19. Now that the
Democratas . ha ve . captured . the . house
the market price of mules, especially
Missouri mules, may - rise. - The cause

It Is said today that minority leader

desire to furnish the team, of mules

pearance on ' Pennsylvania avenue

from the "Show Me" state, who is

Can No Longer Lend Their
Names for Boosting Ad
vertising Schemes.
Washington, Nov. 19. The practice
of postmasters obligingly complying
with requests from patrons and others
for letters of indorsements, testimon
ies and guarantees as to honesty and
reliability, etc., has become so preva
lent that It has finally attracted the
attention of the postofflce department
with the result that the department
has advised postmasters ttiat they
must not sign such papers or state
ments in their official capacities.
. Inquiry of post office department off
icials brought to light the , fact that
a testimonial or indorsement of a
patent medicine, a stomach "bitters,"
or some such tonic by postmasters is
the best kind of a "drawing card,"
and is worth money in the way of
promoting the sale of such indorsed
articles. Not only manufacturers of
patent medicine seek these indorse
ments, but the fellows with the get-rich-quick
out of valuable lands and
oil well shares and other tempting
speculation schemes make a practice
of playing for . the local postmaster's
indorsement and testimonial.
According to a' statement made by
an employe of the postofflce many
complaints have been received from
victims of schemers who promised
all kinds of wealth that would follow
the possession of a few shares in the
"never-dry-up oil well," or the posses
sion of a few acres of rich, yielding
land. The victims in their letters said
they were Induced to buy the stock,
or shares -by the eulogistic testimon
ial given by postmasters.
While the suggestion made by the
postofflce department to the postmas
ters that it may be difficult to refuse
indorsements and testimonials is not
an official order, yet the effect, it is
believed, will be the same. Unless
such indorsement of the "only stom
ach bitters, guaranteed to cure" car
ries with it- the official capacity of
the indorser it will prove of little
value, and not worth a dozen bottles
of the "Bitters."
Hope Chairman Perkins of
Navy- Committee ' Will
Not Retire from Job.
, (American News Service) ".
'Washington,. Nov.- 19. The advo
cates of a bUf navy are worried some
what because of the coming shake-up
of the senate committee on -naval af
fairs, They say that If Senator Per
kins, the present . chairman, - should
insist on the ' chairmanship of appro
priations, which he would be entitled
to in view of the fact t that Senator
Hale," the present chairman, retires
from. the. senate next March, it would
deprive the naval committee of a val
uable man. The California senator Is
a friend of the navy and as chairman
of that committee he exercises a
large influence in the senate. But as
the appropriation .committee is one of
commanding power, it is not improb
able that Senator Perkins will be
willing to exchange chairmanships.
Senator Hale was always conservative
when It came to building battleships,
and now that he will soon retire from
the senate the friends of the navy
look forward to less opposition to
additions to increasing our war fleets.
Of course. Senator Perkins . can be
counted- on to help the cause, but
with a new make up of the , naval
committee it will not be easy sailing
for the naval program in the upper
house of congress. . .
This -Is a Question Which Is
Now Confronting, the
Democratic Minority.
(American News Service)
Washington, Nov. 19. The question
is now asked who will be selected for
floor leader by the Democrats in the
senate after March 4. While very
little has been said about it for pub
lication there is nevertheless much
interest manifested by Democrats
generally. When Senator Culberson
of Texas resigned the responsibility
of floor leader early last session, be
cause of ill health, Senator Bailey
was looked up to take the place, but
he politely declined and suggested
that the honor go to Senator Money of
Mississippi. This was unanimously
agreed to. The Mississippi senator
retires March 3, 1911, being succeeded
by John Sharp Williams, who for sev
eral congresses was minority leader in
the house. It is not thought that he
will aspire to the leadership of the
minority In the senate, but his legis
lative experience will give him a posi
tion in the senate seldom accorded a
new member of that body.
Judging from the discussion that
has thus far been indulged in it will
surprise no one should Senator Cul
berson, if his health permits, be per
suaded to again assume the minority
leadership. It may be of interest to
know that the name of Senator Bacon
of Georgia, has also been frequently
mentioned In connection with this dis
tinction. The Georgia senator now
has the record of dean of the senate
on the Democratic side succeeding to
that position made vacant by the
death of Senator Daniel of Virginia.
Sweeper Drives Pedestrians
Off Main Street.
The dustless city, the sanitary Qua
ker city of the west, and other similar
phrases, applicable at the, time were
disregarded by the judges in the se
lection of a slogan for Richmond, in
favor . of the phrase, "Panic Proof
City." There were those (who, until
with the last week, when' they have
bad occasion to go down town about
10 o'clock- at night, believed the
Judges erred in their selection.
- Entirely inappropriate would have
been any of these proposed slogans
which referred ' to the " city's cleanli
ness, for now on Main street, the prin
cipal business place In Richmond,
great clouds (perhaps fogs -would be
better) of dust are raised following
the ' passage of the street sweeper.
Pedestrians are driven indoors. The
police patroling Main street ' find it
convenient . to , be around the corner.
Anyone who can stand the suffocating
and odoriferous clouds Is termed a
marvel ' by those who have been fa
the class who have gladly forsaken
the street-
Since the cold weather the contrac
tor in charge of cleaning up the city's
paved streets, has not been sprinkling
them. The dust is quickly brushed
into the air and completely obliter
ates the view of those who can possi
bly remain on the street. Much com
plaint has been made about the dust
to the city officials. Merchants are
"kicking clear over the traces", and
it Is more than likely the matter win
be given much ' debate at the next
council meeting.

Detectives Try to Prevent a
Palladium Photographer
from Taking Pictures of
Wreck Last Week.
Park , Policeman Hollern
Backs Up Camera Man and
TSIeuths , "Wilt" 3 William
Walling Is Quite J-ow.
If the Palladium staff photographer
who took the accompanying picture of
the Pennsylvania railroad wreck.; oc
curring just east of this city early
Thursday morning, had attempted . to
snap the visage of his Royal Nibbs,
the King of Siam, it is hardly proba-
Die ne wouia nave encountered a
tougher proposition than the one to
which he was assigned. Since the
time articles of incorporation were
filed.for the firsjt railroad company in
America, Becrecy-among the officials
and all employes has been the pass
word. And one of the first qualifica
tions for a good railroader It seems.
is to assume the attitude of a deaf and
dumb mute when any such dangerous
looking thing as a newspaper man is
seen "hanging around."
This absurd policy was in vogue on
last Thursday. Hardly had the Pal
ladium photographer finished adjust
ing the lens of bis camera and setting
the tripod in its proper position for
one of the best views of the disaster,
when he was approached with steal
thy step by two railroad detectives
whose keen insight led them to be
lieve "that he was about to take a
photograph. Accordingly ( they in
quired of the ntruder his business and
found that their theory had been cor
rect. - v -'.'-.! , -;V
Audacious Boldness. ,
He admitted with' audacious bold
ness, that It was his Intention to take
a snap shot, adding that he intended
to produce it in the Palladium. Act
ing on the presumption that it was al
ways well to "get in" with the rail
road company, and remembering their
oath against newspaper men, they
told the photographer that - he would
have to do a disappearing specialty
mighty quick or suffer the conse
quence of being arrested. But the
staff man was onto his job and re
fused to be "buffaloed" without leav
ing traces of a battle. In fact he had
been told before, on the sly, that per
haps his presence . there would not
arouse a very marked degree of en
thusiasm among ' the railroaders.
After considerable parleying it soon
became apparept to the staff photo-'
grapher that if he was going to take
any views of the wreck he must have
police protection. He immediately
telephoned to police headquarters and
asked Sergeant McNally to send a po.
liceman to the scene of , the wreck.
McNally told him to appeal to Park
Superintendent Ed Hollern, who had
special police power and that if any
more protection were needed it would
be "on the way" for the asking.' The
staff man was told by Hollern to go
ahead and take as many pictures of
the wreck as he-pleased, adding that
he would stand alongside and see to
it that the rude detectives did not
interrupt the proceedings.
Sherlocks Begin to Wilt.;
The Sherlocks realizing that their
threats were falling on deaf ears very
kindly and considerately agreed to
stand with their backs to the camera
while the pictures were being snap
ped. By doing this, they stated, it
would not appear as though they had
shirked their duty and consequently
could not be blamed for pictures that
were taken without their knowledge.
Superintendent Hollern asked as a
special request that the ."sleuths"
stand facing the kodak, but somehow
or other they were not more than
sixty per cent enrapport over the sug
gestion and besides they really must
be going.
The condition of William Walling
was reported last night by the au
thorities at Reid Memorial hospital as
being worse. It was considered very
doubtful If he would survive the night
J. D. Smith, the fireman, the other
wreck victim, is getting along nicely,
it is said, and was resting easily last
evening. .

Young Frenchman Is to Be
Arraigned at Louisville,
Ky., for the Brutal Killing
of a School Girl.
There Is Strongest Circum
stantial Evidence Against
the Accused Story? of the
Fiendish Crime.
Dec. 8, 1909 Alma Kellner dis
appeared from her home.
Jan. 14. 1910 Joseph Wcndling
quit his place ras janitor of SL
John's church.
May 30 A plumber, dlgsing be
neath the school, of St. Join's
church, found the horribly mutil
ated remains of the Kellner child.
Wendling suspected, and his wife

a verdict of willful murder against
June 30 Grand jury indicted
Wendling for murder In the first
June 24 Wendling eluded his pur-(
suers at San Antonio, Tex. : ;
July 30 Wendling captured in
San Francisco and returned to
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 19. Not in
many years has a criminal trial in
Louisville excited the intense interest
exhibited in the case of Joseph Wend
ling, the young Frenchman, who Is to
be brought into court Monday to
stand trial for the alleged murder ."of
little Alma Kellner, whoso mysterious
disappearance last winter and the sub
sequent finding of her mutilated re
mains after a search of nvwitb at?
;traeted the attention- of the whole
country. The police and the prosecut
ing attorney's office declare, they have
evidence sufficient to convict Wend
ling of the horrible crime , of which
he is charged. The accused man, on
the other hand, continues to main
tain his innocence and at no time
since he has been' lodged in the Louis
ville jail has he manifested any un
easiness over the outcome of his trial.
On the contrary, according to the jail
attaches, the young man has rather
appeared to enjoy the notoriety.
' Evidence Against Him.
That strong circumstantial evidence
exists to connect Wendling with the
murder is not to be denied. His posi
tion as janitor of the school where
the remains of the little girl were
found and his flight from the "city soon,
after her disappearance are consider
ed the strongest links in .the chain of
evidence forged against him.
Alma Kellner, the eight year old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred F.
Kellner, left her home in East Broad
way on the morning of December 8,
last, to attend mass at St. John's
church, about three blocks away.
:When she did not return home at the
exoected time her parents made in
quiries and the next morning a gen
eral search was begun. The general
theory was that it was a case Of kid
naping and with the publicity given
the case letters began to reach the
parents attempting to extort money
for the return of the child.
From day to day the search con:
tinued for many weeks. The uncle of
the child, a well-to-do resident of
Louisville expended much money
running down clues. But not the
slightest trace of the little girl was
found either by the police or by pri
vate detectives and the case remained
ah absolute mystery unUl May 30,
nearly six months after her disap
pearance. Body la Discovered.
On May 30 some plumbers employed
to find a leak in the water pipes under
one of the buildings attached to St.
John's church found in the slime and
ooze in which they were digging a
part of the remains of the missing
child. Buried near by were found a
glove which the litUe girl wore , and
several garments identified as belong
ing to her.
Further evidence found around the
school buildins; and among the ef
fects of the janitor, Joseph Wendling,
directed suspicion toward him and
when an effort was made to capture
him it was found that he had fled
from the city in January. His wife
was taken into custody . on suspicion
of being; an accessory, but was subse
quently released. -
- A "world-wide search for Wendling
was then "begun. He was traced into
Texas, but eluded the detectives when
they were almost on the point of cap
turing him in San Antonio. . Late in
July, however, he was located in San
Francisco through letters he had writ
Un to a woman in Hume, Mo-, and
taken Into custody.
The police theory is that the child,
who was late for church,' waa dis
covered alone In the church by Wend-
