It will be news to most people to know that the Superior Malting com pany, which ha s purchased the Hawk eye Elevator "A" at Calumet Park, from Richard Fitzgerald, vice presi dent of the Indiana Harbor B.lt rail way company for $100,000, and will commence, at once tlie building of two large brick structures to cost in the neighborhood of a quarter of a million I dollars.

The Michigan Central railroad Is now engaged in repairing some of its freight cars In the yards between Calu met Park and Hammond and there are thirty-nvo or forty men employed there. It has been rumored that this "work of car repairing is to be greatly Increased and that the railroad com pany will soon build a plant of very respectable proportions for this per- j pose.

Gary. Dec. 28. An incident that furn ished amusement to the local police court hangers on took place this morn ing when Milan Prlcka had Milan Bunjak arrested on a charge of mis conduct preferred by Pricka's wife. Milan Pricka first hired Attorney Clarence Bretsch as legal council but grew suspicious of Bretsch because he saw- him holding a consultation with Bunjak. He took this to mean that he was breaking faith with him and was getting In with Bunjak. That would never do thought Prlcka and so he went out and hired Gustave Hart to prosecute Bunjak. Hart had no sooner taken hold of the case than he opened up in conversation with Hunjak also incurring the displeasure of Pricka. Pricka then went out on a search for another attorney. He found Charles Fedders and immediately hired him to take charge of his legal matters. Fed ders did as the other lawyers had Jone, Full to o(lf' DlNclMtrKrd Ones. Pricka was determined to get some one who would represent him as he though he ought to be represented and sc he went out on a still hunt for an other attorney. In the meantime he had said nothing to the other three lawyers he had hired and they all supposed they were still engaged to look after Pricka's in terests. Finally there was a rumpus, some explanations and then the three lawj-ers began to think the joke was on them. P.efore they had finished wondering what it was all about Milan Pricka came into the police station with a worried look on his face. He had been unable to find another attorney and he was dead sure that the three other-s he had hired had betrayed him. Attorney Bretsch was finally selected to prosecute the case but there wae riot enough evidence against Bunjak and he was released. Milan Prlcka In the mean time Is convinced that Bunjak has wronged him through his (Bunjak's) wife and Is convinced that his lawyers have all deceived him. MOST SHOOT OFFICER Drunks Blaze Away Regard less of Danger; Narrow ly Miss Policeman. While celebrating the holidays in real wild west style, shooting revolv ers in the air, two drunken Hungar ians nearly shot Officer Kunz as he was walking along Columbia avenue, near Morton street, yesterday. The men had just come out of a sa il i loon when one of them pulled a 3S- caliber revovler and started to blaze away. The bullet whizzed so close to the policeman that ho involuntarily ducked his head. He soon overpow ered one of the. men and the other escaped but was captured later. The men gave their names as Adam Overnteh and Thomas Wiehick, and when searched at the station two re volvers were taken away from them. They were given a hearing before Judge McMahon this morning and "Wiehick. who fired the shot, was fined $25. Ovornieh was fined $16. Both paid and were released and the weap ons were confiscated.

One hundred and twenty-five dem ocrats convened this morning in Roth's hall for the purpose of electing dele gates and alternates to the district convention which will be held at Monon on Jan. for the purpose of electing a district chairman. The ambitions of James Kirby Risk for re-election as Tenth Hiut..; : man were given a vital blow in a res olution that was adopted unanimously stating in effect that Risk as chair man of the Tentli district Is undesirable and that his re-election would not seem to be in the best interests of the party. Lake county's force in dealing this blow is generally recognized all over the district ami that his own county Tippecanoe may re-elect him as county chairman it is now doubtful whethe he will be in line for re-election for Tenth district chairman. The man who seems to be the choice now of the Lake county democracy is George Roby of Fowler, tniitor of the Fowler Democrat, and if he is nom inated at the Monon convention Jan. z, laKe county delegates will their votes for him.

These remarks were addressed to Sergeant Kdward Klopf by Chief of Police Martin of Gary, when, to the surprise of both of the officers, a man stepped from behind the stove and said: "You don't need no John Doe warrant.

Hon. Edward Simon, Lake county representative in the legislature, called the meeting to order as county chair man and was unanimously elected chairman pro tern the permanent sec retary, isicnoias iuer took the min utes. Many prominent democrats of the county were present and made ad dresses stating the situation and ex horting those present for harmony and earnest work.

Both have been going over the district carefully and it is acknowledged that their work toward ousting James K. Risk of La fayette seems was what proved ef fective. In Lafayette where Risk is at home the sentiment yesterday was that the opposition to his candidacy has its strong hold in Uke county. Some of the Lafayette democrats even say that Risk, might be elected state chairman wout being district chair man, and there is some talk of Risk not running for district chairman if the op position is too pronounced. Although the anti-Risk men in Lafayette are active, it is reported that local pride will lead them to refrain from fighting the Lafayette candidate for chairman.

A committee was appointed to select a hall In one of the office buildings in the city and to make arrangements for permanent quarters. It has been dis covered that there are several Lady Maccabees in Gary and an auxiliary or ganization will probably soon be per fected. Quite a large attendance was had at the first meeting and it is believed the Maccabees will be strong In Gary. With the passing of the ordinance last night dividing the city into ten wards, the question arises. "Whnm .m mayor appoint as councilmen for lew wards?" Five councilman three councilmen-at -large are to be seated in company with the seven reir- uitn elected aldermen to hold positions until the next regular tion. Mayor Becker was out this afternoon and other w no were nronn.1 e.w.l ami said thev hsi,i r,,,ltil ..i p-.inicians tney even went so far as to say they had not even heard of any names that were being mentioned. But there is a campaign on just the same, although it is of the gumshoe and prestige order. The air is clear of campaign cigar smoke and there is nobody that holds out the "glad hand." Its all up to Mayor Becker and when ho has a spare moment in hla office there is a caller to talk things over and to sec- what his prospectn are. Each candidate represents himself ns th best one and recalls to the rnayor'a memory how in th last campaign ho delivered the votes. In the meantime the mayor is taking the applicant's measure, taking into consideration which ward he hails from and the kind of man that is wanted there. There is still enough time left until the next regular election for a new man to make a record for himself Hnd thus put himself in line for reelection. Incidentally Mayor Becker is brought face to face with another question that was presented to him last night when the council passed a resolution dur ing his absence asking him to retain the present board of public works. The mayor has not yet committed himself. Mayor Becker recognizes !he effic iency of the present board an.l if i. generally understood that he would put off the change as long hh possible. There are some who think that he may put off the chancre until May thus di viding the time between the old board and new board.
