He called her back and asked her more about her case. He found that her husband was unable to work on account of an Injured foot. The plucky wife left her children with the father and went to Chicago where she was able to secure some work. Finally when she was about to become a moth er her employers discharged her and she returned to her home in the Stand ard district, hopeless. She did not aply for help until it was positively necessary and then when she thought that her plea had fallen on deaf ears there is little wonder that the brave woman cried. She was eventually given the assistance she required and went on her way relieved." Would Impose on Officials. But while there are individual cases of this kind in great numbers, there are also a large number of people who would Impose on the township trustee if he did not use exceptionally good judgment in the giving of aid. In Indiana Harbor steps have been taken for the systematic relief of the poor ana U is unaersiooa mai iooa is to be furnished by many of the manu facturing concerns and by private in dividuals. A relief committee has been formed, composed of sixty members, taken from among the most substantial business men in the city, and they are to have charge of what charity work is to be done. Richard Schaaf spent all yes terday morning aiding in the organiza tion of the work there and then put in the afternoon in Hammond. Here the matter was shaken up with Mayor Becker who appointed John Kane as the seceretary and treasurer of a committee to receive funds. A can vass will be made of the business men of the city and it Is already under stood that many have responded lib erally. That the people of the Calumet region will eare for the poor unfortunates who find themselves without means of sup port and yet with prosperous times only a few months back, Is certain; and it Is hoped that before long industrial conditions will haye Improved until there will be little necessity for the charity of the more fortunate.

Knapp Tries to Force Issue in Controversy. At the meeting of the Gary board yesterday, K. K. Knapp made an effort to force the issue in the franchise con troversy between the Gary & Interur ban line and the town of Gary. He offered a resolution to the town board requiring the Gary & Interurban company to fulfill its contract as prom ised, accept the extension offered by the board or get out and let some other company build the line. Frank Gavit, who has appeared for the Gary & Interurban company all along, maintains that the company's franchise cannot be forfeited and that the delay so far has not been the company's fault, but the result of liti gation and other extenuating circum stances. The matter was finally referred to L. L. Bomberger, the city attorney, who will investigate the matter and report to the city council, informing them as to just what steps they can take to compel the Gary & Interurban com pany to live up to its franchise. Mr. Gavit submitted a contract to the Gary Light company by which a rental was fixed for the use of the poles of the Gary & Interurban com pany upon which the! feed wires will be strung, Mr. Kna' reiterated his statement that he w; aid not deal with the Gary & Interurban company di rectly and any arrangements that are made along this line will have to be made between the Gary Light company and the Gary town board. Regarding the franchise matter, Mr. Knapp said he hoped it would be brought to a head at the next meeting when tho city attorney's report will be heard. Every one is sick of the delay and pressure will be brought to bear to bring about an understanding be tween the contending parties in the near future. The consideration of the rights of Richard Much, who refuses to sell his land to the Chicago, Lake Shore & Eastern railroad for yard purposes and who has been evicted by the action of the town board, will be taken up and Attorney George Sheerer, who is ap pearing for Much, will take the board members to the property in an auto mobile and explain the rights of his clients.

The best aid to temperance Is some thing that will strengthen the drunk ard's nervous system and cure hia un natural craving for drink. We be lieve that any man who really desires to be cured of the liquor habit can cure himself by using Orrine.

SINGLE EH GET PAID MONEY Township Trustee Richard Schaaf In a Quandary Over Delicate Situation. Between two hundred and three hun- I dred people received aid at the town ship trustee's headquarters opened yes terday in Indiana Harbor, and today the scenes that were enacted within and in front of the Auditorium where the . warrants are being issued, were similar to those of yesterday. Preparations were made yesterday for a meeting of the committee ap pointed to take charge of the collec tion and receipt of contributions and when S. L. Eisler called the meeting to order at 3 o'clock this afternoon there was a goodly number of those asked to serve on the committee, pres ent. A few of the appointees had gotten together yesterday and discussed the situation informally and a general plan of procedure had been formulated which was proposed at this afternoon's meeting, but up to the hour of going to press, no definite action had been taken. The plan as proposed, how ever embraced the appointment of var ious committees, which in turn were to divide into subcommittees. The main committees were to be those on investigation and employment and in dustry. The duties of the members of the former, which it was proposed was to number twelve and to be subdivided Into four subcommittees of three mem bers each and would be to inquire into the worthiness of the cases of destitution reported to them. The sec ond Is to also number twelve and to be similarly subdivided. Its function will be to seek employment for as many men out of work as it is possible . to find, Its members visiting every in i dustrial plant in this region in an ef fort to place the men. There will probably also be a com mittee on collection and distribution as the general committee is large and has sufficient members to warrant a large number of subcommittees. About 150 warrants entitling the bearers to groceries, meats and pro visions were Issued yesterday. The bulk of these warrants were taken over to S. L Eisler's grocery and mar ket and turned Into bread, flour, salt pork and other inexpensive foods. Mr. Eisler is chairman of the general com mittee. In the meantime there have been a few developments which have shown that some of the charity thus far ex tended has been misdirected. Inves tigation has shown that at least a number of cases which have been min Istered to by Charles Muller, who acted as the official representative of the township, were not worthy. John Ma konwski, 3S25 Beech street, who owns his own house and lot and keeps chick ens, ducks, geese, and has an abund ance of wood frankly piled up in his yard. There was one case of a family named Perunskl in Deadore street, who received aid and were not in need, according to report. A load of coal was delivered to 3725 Alder street to a man who it Is alleged owns his own home and keeps boarders. To one family living at 3603 Beech street two orders of coal of one-half ton each were delivered the same day. The complaint is made that all of the people receiving aid are foreign ers and that these same foreigners haled into a justice court for any crime or misdemeanor, would he able to dig up the price of their fine from some where.

By John S. Derpa, the defeated can didate: "I am a good loser and al though defeated I feel proud of my record while a representative of the people in the council chamber. I have been honest and conscientious. The result simply shows that the voters in the eighth ward do not appreciate an honest public official." By J. J. Poulton: "I bow to tho will of the people. It was one of the clean est fights I have ever taken part In."

Queen and Her Lover. Essex street, London, derives ltu name from the ill-fated earl of Es sex, the favorite of Queen Elizabeth. The earl's town house stood in Essex street and the queen often visited him there. The story goes that it was In the garden of Essex house that the queen gave her favorite a box on his ear, saying: "Go and be hanged!" and the hot-tempered young man swore that he would not have brooked such an insult from her father. A curious discovery relating to Essex and Queen Elizabeth was made by Lord Cholmondely in 1770 at a house in Essex, street which oyerlooked the earl's gardens. Scratched on a pane of glass in a top window were the let ters "I. C. U. S. X. and E. R.," which has been interpreted as "I see you Essex and Elizabeth regina," and was probably the recorded Jest of an in quisitive onlooker, who witnessed the meetings of the queen and her favorite.
