IB A.ttornevs in Desperate At tempt to Save Client PAROLED !!l A YEAR The Indiana Banker and Politician May Not Have To Wear Stripes i Lang If He Behaves Thos J. McCoy is making a game fight to keep from behind the bars. His attorneys will use every means at their command to save their client from punishment, but it will avail nothing and Mr. McHugh thinks that by September 1 they finally will have exhausted all their ammunition If Judge Farber denies a new trial, and the supposition is that he will deny it, after hearing an argument that must neeeossarily take up some .time, the defense will ask for an ar rest of judment. That will not con sume much time, because there will be no argument, no record, and Judge Farber can pass on it in five minutes. In demanding an arrest, of jud ment the defense will set up the indictment is not good, but as Judge Farber, before the trial began, said the affidavits were - uxl, it is not like ly he will c.'iule himself. If this fails, then there will bo a judment on the finding of the jury and McCoy will go to the peniten tiary, provided the Supreme Court refuses to grant the. supersedeas that will be asked. Will "Do" only One Year. So, if McCoy takes the trip, behave himself in prison, obeys all the rules and has a good record as a prisoner, he will be paroled- after one year's service, but the other two years will hand over him and he will be what jsed to be called in England, a ticket of Leave man;" that is , he must report every month for two years to the prison authorities. He must serve his time his case is pend ing in the Supreme Court on an ap peal. Commenting on the outcome of the case, W. H. Blodgett of the India napolis News says. "And what is the of it all? One whose dark hair is beginning to be streaked woth gray, at the time in life when he should be able to lean back and say, "I have lived well," is about to don the felon's stri,.?". Another is tottering on the edge of the grave, and just as his life's Bin is going down it throws a shadow across the walls of a prison. The wreck of one mansion; another lonely and deserted." Tom McCoy's maxim in life was "I would rather live fifteen years than stay here fifty. "He is paying the penalty of fifteen years. No McCoy Avenue The people of Rensselear are now demanding that the name of one of their principal streets shall be chan ged from McCoy Ave, to Milroy Ave. The EveningRepubliean in com menting on the proposed change, hinting at the bitterness that there is against the McCoys because of the scandal they have caused in the beau tiful little country seat of Jasper County says. "The name should have been Mil roy Ave. in the first place, had not the spirit of Toodyism been stronger than the spirit of patriotism." ) NEW LUMBER AND COAL CO.

The first bell for a high school for St. John township was sounded last evening by County Superintendent W. R. Curtis at the commencement exercises of the St. John's township eighth grade. The exercises were held at St. John in Rammer's hall, for the first time in the history of the village. Other graduates have gone forth from the schools but there were no commencement exercises for them with the exception of once when six years ago the eighth grade class graduated formally at Dyer. Commencement exercises being of such an unusual occurrence in the township, the exercises last night drew out an unusual number of patrons who came to see and hear that of which they had heard before. Standing room in the spacious hall was at a premium. The exercises took place according to the program, and went well like exercises of that nature always do. Trustee Weis of St. John township presented the graduates with, the well earned di plomas and Supt. Curtis colsed the exercises with a short talk to the graduates and the patrons. Short as his talk was, it was of .such a nature that it will bear fruit. He dwelt on the value of commence ments but more particularly on the meaning of commencements. In the course of his talk he lead up to the value of the high school and showed results of a high school education in figures and statistics. His words fell on fertile soil when he finally said that St. John township can have a high school of its own and so give the children an equal chance with the children in the other townships of the county. Reminding the patrons of their good gravel roads for the children to travel, their low taxes, the good financial standing of the township and the fact that good buildings for a high school are already in exist ence, he gained hearty supporters among the audience. It was Mr. Curtis' first appearance in St. John since his appointment to the county superintendence and he was well received. The evening's program was as fol lows: March. Celebrated Iloosiers Margaret Boecker Opportunities of America Martha Caristenson Song. Unknown America Herbert Austgen Seed Time and Harvest Anna Bultge Music. Self Culture Bernard Baker Influence of the Beautiful Matilda Liesenfelt Song. Valedictory Margaret Ludwig Address Supt. W. R. Curtis Presentation of Diplomas. Music. Sent Food and Flowers.
