REAL ESTATE WITNESSES Will Testify That Street Improve ments Cost More Than Lot3 Brewer Hardest Hit About a dozen men went to Val- pariso this morning to appear as wit nesses in the case of the City of Ham mond vs The New York, Chicago & St. 'Louis It. It. The Nickel Plate Railroad de clares the assessment charged against It for the paving of Fayette St. to be excessive and refuses to pay for its share of the improvements. Strange to say the property own ers agree with it and will aid it in the fight against the city. Mr. Crurupaeker heads the delega tion as attorney for the railroad and will fight the matter out for both the railroad and the citizens who think the assessment unreasonable. The pavement was laid by con tractor Myrick and the assessment for a running foot was $6.22. Brewers Hard Hit The property hardest hit is that owned by the Miller Brewing Co. This lot is a triangle two sides of which faced streets ' which were paved. The whole lot is not worth much Wore than $1,000 and yet the assess ment against it was $900. There are numerous other cases where the damage is excessive and unjust. Among them being the pro perty owned by John Camp, Peter Schutz, Otto Mathies, and the Pabst Brewing Co. Fred Mott, G. II. Jacobson, and Chas Fredericks are the principal "witnesses and they are to testify in regard to the value of the property on Fayette St. It is expected that this testimony will establish the fact that in some proaehes the value of the property assessed and works a hardship on each of the iiroperty owners along this highway. It is not known pavement was so much more than any other in the city but this will probably come out in the trial. FROM THE BLUE TO THE GRAY. The Hammond board of police commissioners was in session last evening. Routine work was taken care of. At this meeting the res ignation of Wilfred Timmons was accepted by tho board and a suc cessor appointed in his place. The honor will go to Nicholas Einsele. Timmons was one of the oldest men on the force in the point of service. He was well liked by his superiors and by the people on his beat. His resignation will go into effect July 1, when he will begin as a mail car rier for Uncle Sam. At Aces and Spades. Judging from the following edi torial in the Huntington News-Democrat last night, the fraternity there must be at spades and aces with each other: "If the nice lad who has been tem porarily employed by the News-Democrat has made any attempt on the the city as stated by the Herald Sat urday evening, it is certain he. has not attempted a reorganization of any business crowding out his father and then sectiring an ap pointment of Sunday school super intendent to have an opportunity to wear out his trousers praying for forgiveness.." Editors sometimes need to pray for forgiveness. Ye Ed. NOTICE. The home building and loan will meet a week from today instead of a week from tomorrow, owing to the Fourth of July. A. II. Tapper, Pres. 6-26-6t. Barnie Sayles of 214 West State street died last Sunday evening at St. Margaret's hospital after severe suffering of typhoid fever. Sayles was 41 years old at the time of his death. He was a conductor on the C. J. and with his death is removed one of the best known railroad men of Hammond. He was a member of the Catholic order of Foresters and his funeral tomorrow morning will be in their charge. Interment will take place at Greenwood cemetery and will be in charge of Undertaker Neidow. Funeral services will be i held at All Saints church. Sayles leaves a widow and three children, the only relatives that he had in this world. Aggravated Case of Lockjaw Guy Maxwell, eighteen years old, a recent graduate of the high school, Delphi, and living yith his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Maxwell, three miles from that city, some weeks ago stepped on a rusty nail, which penetrated his foot. Lockjaw de veloped and for three weeks physi cians have been unable to afford re lief, although fully $100 worth of anti-toxine has been used. His re covery is improbable. i Maxwell was a former classmate of Will Smith of this place. Queer Freak of Time. If Tom McCoy gets a job on the prison farm, at Michigan City, as he is reported to be in hopes of, he will have for his boss Alfred Arm strong, who formerly lived on the McCoy farms in Hanging Grove township, but who has had charge of the prison farm for quite a num ber of years. The whirligig of time brings out some queer results, some times. Tenth District Democrats Meet. Lafayette, Ind., June 25. James K. Risk, district chairman, has is sued a call for a special meeting of the Tenth district congressional committee which will be held at Michigan City on Saturday, July 14. The Cook county Democratic March ing Club of Chicago, will picnic there the same day. FEED CARTER IS REMEMBERED. The South Chicago people, ac cording to the South Chicago Calu met, have taken notice of their former townsman Fred Carter now of this city, who is making the race for sheriff of Lake county on the democratic ticket. Carter was formerly a South Chicago resident and was engaged there as a railroad engineer. After the strike he went into the oil business and later opened his livery business here. The chief regret of his South Chicago friends during his campaign is that they cannot come to this county to vote for him. LIVE CHICKEN HAWK AT PARK J. H. Kasper chief engineer at the waterworks at the Lake Front has received another addition to his me nagerie which he is building up at the Park. His friend Adam Rolling at Schreviile presented him with a large fierce chicken hawk which he keeps caged. The bird is quite an attraction to the many people that go out to the Lake Front because of the possibility of seeing this bird at ciose range. Mr. Kasper warns the spectators not to approach the bird too closely as he is afraid of nothing. His sharp beak hacks away at anything that happens to come within his reach. It should have read "near" the Ok lahoma saloon instead of "at" the Oklahoma saloon in the story given in these columns yesterday about the hoboes being dispersed by the local police. Dr. Ebright went over to Oak Glen this morning to attend a horse belonging to Herman Meeter of that place. The horse had broken its leg and when the doctor examined it he recommended that the animal be killed, which was done.

Mrs. Landon of 28 6 South Hoh man street disappeared in Chicago under peculiar circumstances. She left her daughter Marie, a recent graduate, in a department store and gave her enough, money to pay her car fare back to Ham mond. She said she would return soon and asked her daughter to wait for her. The girl waited from about 2 o'clock until 5:30 and then decided to go home as she was afraid her mother had missed her. She left for home alone. Upon her arrival here she told her father of the corcumstances and together they waited all night for the mother's return. In the morning Mr. Landon took the first train to the city and began an all morning search for his wife About noon word was received by Mr. Bicknell, who is related to the Landons, that the search had been successful and so Mr. and Mrs. Landon are expected from the city soon.

Park er for the building of $2,000 cottage on Conkey Ave, Work on the house began today. Although it is over a week until the Fourth, the police are already heaving numerous compliants In I regard to the injudicious use of fire works. The dangerous cap pistol and the blank cartridge revolver that is re sponsible for more Fourth of July accidents than any other of the dangeros noise makers, have al-, ready made their appearance much to the sorrow of the man with the shying horse and the nervous old lady on the street. The police have determined to nut a stnn to the nuisance until the Fourth and have as authority for this ' action the following section of the laws of Indiana. TOY PISTOLS Sec. 4 51 It shall be unlawful lor any person, firm or company to manufacture, sell or expose for sale, or give away as a prize or reward, any toy pistol or other device tor the purpose ot exploding caps or wafers containing fulminates or other explosive com pounds; and any person, firm, com pany or corporation so manufaet- uring, selling or offering to sell or give away any such toy pistol or other devices shall bo deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on convic tion, shall be lined not less than ten dollars or more than fifty dollars or be imprisoned in the county jail not less than ten days or more than wenty days. While it is not the purpose of enforce this law on the Fourth, they are going to insist on a strict enforcement during the eight days between now and the day the eagle screams. CLASSIC MUSIC IN THE AIR YOU CAN'T QET AWAY FROM IT n,s rro"An !?a matic Pianos To Be Heard On Our Midway. To say that ITannncmd's aesthetic tastes need cultivating would be a gross injustice to the inhabitant of this city. One of the first evidences of a fine grained make-up is one's love for music and to say that Hammondite do not love music would be equal to an admission of ones inability to ob serve. Had a stranger approached the city from the South last evening, his ears would have been greeted with the soul inspiring strains of music from a German band in front Schwab's saloon. As the sounds became fainter and fainter and one listened intently for the fading melodies he would catch the sound of the phonograph in the candv store across from the Catholic mansion and again his soul would be delighted with familiar strains. From there his attention would be called to the masterful execution of "So long Mary" and others of Chopin ou Fred Heintz's famous automatic organ. ' Then just step over to the Lion store for a while and the orchestra there will vary the program for you with one of its choice offerings. A little farther, down Ilohman street a music loving crowd has gituieieu iu uear jMuiitauiuu meiouies I s tilc numuau uia uuuse balcony by a negro quartette. Should your musical appetite still be unsatisfied just stop into Paul Scatena's for a sundae and hear for five cents in "a nickel in the slot" au- tomatic piano you can hear another of the classics rendered perfectly. Hohman St. has become Hammonds midway pJaisance and the spell has creft over us so subtly that we have become aesthetic unawares. EAST CHICAGO DEATH. Zofia Kaczka, the one year old laughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hanly Kaczka of East Chicago died thi morning at the home of her parents, She will be buried Thursday fore- noon at Holy Corss after services at St. Stanilus church.

Motorman and Conductor Have Trouble With Sur plus Cargo REFUSE TO BE BLUFFED Tall Boy With, Large Load Tries " Gymnastics And Comes to ' Grief He was a big boy at least six fee tall and built to match. He boarded the electric car that runs between Indiana Harbor and Hast Chicago at the . Indiana Harbor terminus of the road last evening and was aceonv panied by two other good-sized lads. They all appeared to be working me a and each acted as if the trio had en gaged in a contest to determine who was most able to add to the famej of 'Milwaukee. The big one had apparently been the winner of the contest and had reached the "all-in" stage when ho slouched into a corner Beat. The ear had not proceeded far when one ot the party suggested entering tho smoking compartment in the front of the car, which they all proceeded to do. The two smaller members o the party succeeded in making the other part of the car safely and the big fellow was about to make the passage when he leaned against the glass in the door. The glass might ' have sustained the weight of the ma'i or that of his load, but the combined weight was too much for it and it gave way. The conductor was soon on the scene of action and, in the name of the company told the fellow his bill was $1.40. Small 'but Game. ' , The conductor is not a , very big man but he has a big voice and an admirable bluff, which, accompanied with the threat of immediate arrest, soon persuaded the big boy to come over with 'the one-forty, whereupon- he was allowed to depart in peace at the East Chicago end of the line. The troubles of the long man were) not yet over, however He and his two trailers decided to go over to Whiting on the Hammond, Whiting and East Chicago Electric railway. 1 They lined up on the south side of tha street, the same being the side on which the car does not stop for pas sengers and when the car came with in' reach, the big fellow tried ta "flip" it but his load was so great that the best he could do was to grasp the rail and be dragged all the way across the road. When hia companions had assisted him. to hi3 feet and taken inventory it was found that he had taken on a coat of clust, several bad bruises and a split across the knee of his corderoy trousers. He was mad, very, very mad and pro- rnised to do dire things to the con ductor and his road until that dough ty official forced hini into a corner where he dozed until the car Had, leacucu nuiuiig. ncic xao lumjia" i uwus, nuu on duo i -"o cars crew, assistea mm to me street and ne ooaraea me car lor wooa lawn.
