William E. Black of Eagle Creek, the republican candidate for assessor of Lake county, was in town today shaking hands with his friends. This office acknowledges a pleasant call. Steeple Jack, who is well known in Hammond, is in town today. It will be remembered Steeple Jack has the reputation of being a fearless steeple climber and has painted near ly all the high steeples in Chicago. Attorney Markman of West Hammond Explains Famous Deal. VILLAGE 15 UNSANITARY Urgent Need for Drainage Across Line Causes Expedition by Offi cials in Closing Contract. Samuel K. Markman, the legal ad visor of the village council of West Hammond, has forwarded a lengthy communication to the Lake County Times in regard to the recent sewer controversy in West Hammond. The article points out that several erron eous statements have been made in regard to the letting of the bids and at the same time gives many interest ing facts in regard to the matter. The article is a resume of the his tory of the sewer question as it ap peared in the Lake County Times of August 15, together with the same corrections and several amplifica tions. Briefly summarized it is as follows, according to Attorney Mark man: On August 1, the board of local im provements opened bids for the con struction of a sewer system. Among the bids were those of James Healy, IDS, 737. 00; and Lavene Brothers, $102,645.00. President Mak (net Mr. Markman) opened the bids and requested that they be read by Mr. Markman to the people assembled. Mr. Markman announced at the con clusion of the reading that Lavene had erased their bid on the nine inch pipe because they intended to include it in their bid on the catchbasins. After deliberating on the matter, the board awarded the contract to Lavene Bros., even though their bid was higher, on the ground that Healy was not reliable. It is not known whether the board has any satisfactory proof of the alleged bad character of Mr. Ilealy's work. Mr. Markman denies that he participated in the proceedings or influenced the board in the slightest degree. Mr. Healy claimed that the Lavene bid was irregular because no bid was included on the 9-inch pipe and de manded for his reason that the board reject Lavene's bid. The records which Mr. Markman claims he does not keep will substantiate this fact. The 15-inch laterals instead of costing $4.3S will not cost more than 90 cents, Mr. Markman says, and this is one of the largest items of there being over 25,000 feet to be laid. The sewer case was on trial eight days before Judge Roth in the circuit court. The judge in commenting on the case said that after visiting West Hammond it was his opinion that the village was very much in need of the improvements, as sanitary con ditions in West Hammond were very bad. After this trial a jury was im paneled to decide the question as to whether the people would be bene fitted to the extent of the amount of the assessment. After a three day's trial the jury decided that the prop erty would be benefitted as much as assessed. An appeal has been taken to the supreme court. On Aug. 10, the taxpayers of West Hammond asked that the board of public improvements be enjoined from ever awarding the contract to Lavene Bros., and also asked that a mandatory injunction be issued com pelling the board to accept Mr. Ilealy's bid. Mr. Mak immediately sent for the members of the local board and prepared affidavits den3' ing the material allegations of the bill. The judge decided that Lavene'3 action in erasing the figure bid on the 9-inch pipe nullified the bid. Fur thermore, Lavene Bros, or any one representing them, failed to furnish a single affidavit reflecting on Ilealy's responsibility as a contractor. Tlie John D.: "I think we ought to know each other betterl" U. S.: "Glad you feel that way about it. John, i certainly expect to know YOU better before I get throughl , Triaas in New York Presi, judge further decided that Healy be in the lowest responsible bidder should have the contract. These statements in which it is admitted that refections were made against Mr. Ilealy's reliability' as a contractor when in fact they could not be proven in court," are an admis sion that there was deliberate mis representation on the part of some one connected with the case with, the idea of defrauding Mr. Healy of a contract that rightfully belonged to him. YACHT ENTHUSIAST PLANS FLEET OF POWER BOATS. Completion of East Chicago Canal May Bring Launches to Hammond via Calumet River. With the opening of the several water ways to the! lake Hammond may soon have a power boat club boasting of a fleet of respectable size. C. E. C. Payne of the Lion store has taken the initiative. Mr. Payne is an enthusiastic yachtsman. To morow afternoon at the Hotel Carle ton he will entertain a party of twenty-five members of the Columbia and Jackson Park Yacht clubs of Chicago at which the project prob ably will be discussed. The opening of the canal from Indiana Harbor to the Grand Calumet at a point east of 'East Chicago will afford easy ac cess to the lake, with a harbor for power boats on the river front.

Uncle Joe Cannon says that no man could refuse1 the hon or of an unanimous nomina tion for the presidency. Even at seventy the presidential bee stings good and hard. A philanthropic writer may tell you how to live on thirty cents a day but the food pro ducts selected for this econom mical plan of subsistence you will discover usually sell in the market for thirty dollars. This is similar to the instruc tions given last Xmas in a leading feminine journal on how to give twenty-five pres ents for five dollars. All you had to do was to buy a plank. No acount whatever was tak en of the trifling fact that just a few of us were never instructed in the art of cut ting watch charms, shirt but tons or toilet sets out of oak and some of us did not pos sess saws, knives and decora tive materials. The intention of these economical students may be bully but they are misleading. Jerome is proposed as the only remedy for the Hearst evil menacing New York Democracy. And now who will they scare up as a nat ional antidote for Bryan? A Texas journal is wonder ing how some of the northern kickers about the fierce heat would enjoy sleeping under blankets these hot August nights as many persons in the South find it comfortable to do. Well, there was once a man who loved the heat so much that when his body was being cremated and the op erators opened . the furnace door to judge of the heat he cried out, "Stop that draught!"' Another man in woolens was advised to dis card them and don a linen duster to 'keep cool. He put on ten with the explanation that if one kept him cool, ten would keep him cooler. Fur -tiier than this we have no ex- penence, Texas. and no renlv for reply THE GADFLY. THE WEATHER. Partly cloudy tonight and Sunday. BIG PACKING PLANT IS LIKELY TO COME HERE. Schwartzchild & Sulsburger Selecting a Site on the Calumet River in West Hammond. Will employ 800 Men. Schwartzchild & Sulsberger, one of the "Big Four" of the packing trust, intends to move out of Chicago and take up its abode across the state line in West Hammond where it can get draining facilities into the Calumet river. At least so the story goes. D. A. Sherwin, a representative of the company, visited the prospective site of the new packing house today and made no secret of his visit. He practically admitted that arrange ments had been made to'erect a pack ing plant that would employ from eight hundred to one thousand men. As this is not the full complement of men employed in the Chicago works of the concern it may be that the West Hammond affair is intended merely for a branch. The firm of Schwartzchild & Suls berger, or as it is called, S. & S., in the provision market, has extensive foreign connections and it was hit hard in the recent investigation of the packing trust. The move from the Union stock yards at Chicago is not unnatural. Many of the big packing concerns are getting away from there. The Armour plant, the most extensive in the country, will shortly, according to reports, be transferred to an eight-hundred acre tract of ground near the falls of St. Anthony in Minnesota. There, also according to report, it will erect a model plant with marble furniture and nothing about it to which the most squeamish could raise objec tions. The removal of the stock yards from their present location in Chi cago Is considered inevitable. The place is hemmed in on all sides and has become badly congested. Ex perts in sanitation declare that the proprietors of the packing establish ments really were working a miracle to keep them as clean as they were !
