The alleged offense was com mitted Saturday night following an as sault by the saloonkeeper on the per son of Ed McCready, a local bartender, the coincidence of the saloonkeeper's arrest and the alleged fight to which he was a party, is said to have no sig nificance and there will be no charge of assault preferred against the saloon keeper by McCready, who does not care to continue the trouble. There had been bad blood between the two for some time and they met Saturday night. A few sacrastlc re marks were followed up by blows, Mc Cready who is a smaller man than Rogers, getting very much the worst of it. Although he walked home af ter the fight and was not laid up in bed from his Injuries, he is understood to be in pretty bad shape, his cheek being laid open and one of his eyes badly battered. Among other things he sustained a bad cut under the right eye In addition to the cut on his cheek lower down. The bartender is reported as fairly well recovered today, although he is sun in the seclusion of his home ow Ing to his battered appearance. dealers say, has been the right sort for the trade. Easter lilies and llllles of the valley have been in the greatest demand, these having been purchased mainly in view of the church decorations for the Sun day Easter services, as without ques tion the lllly is used the world over as emblematical in religious ceremonies. Its varieties are almost as numerous as the countries in which It Is given ceremonial prominence, and many spe cies are given the name that have al most no relationship in the scientific classification. The are all seen in the show windows of the South Chieago florists but the Easter lily Is In the greatest abundance. Prices have remained, ahout the same as a year ago, with the exception of the latter few days of the present week. MAKES SOCIAL GALL On Whiting Girl and Falls Writhing in Fit. a While making a social call on Miss Nellie Qulnn of "Whiting, Harry Ber nard of South Chicago, who is em ployed as bookkeeper for the South Chicago Collecting Agency, was sud denly taken sick, and before the frightened young lady knew what had happened, he was writhing in con vulsions on the floor. The young man had been apparently !n good health and spirits all evening. Shortly after 10 o'clock he decided he had better return home and he ac cordingly made an effort to catch the car. He missed It, however, and returned to the home of Miss Qulnn to wait for the next one. It was while there that he wa3 taken with the convulsions. Dr, B. U. Doolittle of Whiting was called and with the assistance of five other men, an effort wa made to quiet the, young man. . . ' , Finally he succeeded and Bernard remained at the Qulnn home until he was finally taken to St. Anthony's hos pital in Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Ber nard, of Madison, Wis., were notified of the condition of their son and came to Whiting to see him before he left tor the hospital. FLOWERS III ACTIVITY ISJIET0R1IG One Hundred and One Lots Sold in Gary to Ball Club. There Is an encouraging return of activity In the real estate business in Gary and Toleston. The most import ant deal of the week was the sale of 101 lots in two blocks at the corner of Hobart and Main streets in Gary, to the promoters of the Gary Baseball club. This crowd of men have already made arrangements for the land necessary for their ball park, but they all had a little money to invest and they de cided to buy the lots described above. The deal is simply for the purpose of speculation, and the promoters of the project expect to get rid of the land as soon as they can do so at a profit. Ludwig Koepke. through his attor ney, George Bardon, sold one lot each to Thomas E. Knotts and G. J. Bader of Whiting. Four other lots were Bold to E. K. Findling of Chicago. The price paid for the property was $10,000 and it was purchased as an invest ment. In addition to this, five lots in the second Oak Park addition were Bold by I A. Bryan to George Smith for 12,500. As spring opens up it is ex pected that the Bale of realty will be even more brisk than It is now and it is expected to continue throughout the summer despite the industrial de pression that is being- felt all over the country.

COCKEO AND PRIMED FOR FRAY United States Steel Company Will Have a Big Scrap on Its Hands. Toleston, Ind., April 16 (Special) The agitation egalnat the vacation of the Clark road will not down. In spite of the efforts of the officials of the United States Steel company to smooth the matter over and secure what they want rlthont a fight there are hundreds of men In both riion. a. .i. townships who are watching the mat ter carefully and are cocked and primed ror a srood tight as soon as the county oniniissloners take up the consideration of the matter. The Clark road Is one of the most Im portant thoroughfares in Lake county. It extends south from the lake for a distance of four miles and connects with the great system of country boulewards in the heart of the county. It is not only the only means of reaching Clarke station from the south but it Is the only means the farmers throughout the entire southern part of the county have of reaching Lake Mich igan. They have taken advantage of this road to hold picnics and other outings on the lake shore and it is safe to say that a protest will be heard from every farmer In the county if the effort is made to vacate this road. William Kunert, the trustee of Calu met, is in receipts of a great many communications from people all over the county who are anxious to know what Is to be done about this road. iney nave heard that the United ciaies cieei company acting for the unicago, ua.Ke Shore & Eastern rail roaa a subsidiary corporation, has been agitating the vacating of the Clark road from Clark to the lake In order that it will not be necessary to construct an expensive viaduct over the yards which the railroad Is now build ing at this place. One Lake county man, writing to Mr. tt-unert, says, "i do not think It is right for the railroad to ask for the vacating of a road that cost Calumet township thousands of dollars simply ucvauac ii uues hoi wani to Duild a viaduct over Its yards. This road Is important it being the only one from the country districts to the lake, be tween Indiana Harbor and Miller." The writer continues "If the county commissioners allow the Chicago, Lake Shore & Eastern to vacate the Clark road it will mean that they are willing to forget the whole northern part of the county in their efforts to please the united States Steel corporation." It Is not known how soon the mat ter wia be considered by the county wiinuisjiuiiciii uuc me opinion seems to be that there will be an equitable settlement of the matter and that the Lnited States Steel company will make some provision for the crossing of the yards by a viaduct rather than insist ing on the vacating of the road. s DAILY SPECIAL This Adjustable Morris Rocker .65 6 it . ;-. fwr! i '. l v..

In a spotlessly clean kitchen, six clean, ragged and hungry children were being cared for and watched over by a worried, over-worked mother -while the father, who had been injured in the Gary mills months ago and had been out of work since that time, lay help less in bed, unable to relieve the suf fering of his starving family. This was the worst of the six cases of destitution with which the Gary po lice were compelled to deal yesterday, and the sight of that perfectly clean home and the mother whose activities under adverse circumstances had made such cleanliness possible, aroused the admiration of the police and arrange ments were at once made to look after the sufferers. i The story of this family Is one of the saddest that has come out of Gary In many a day. J. Niprncenska came to Gary about four months ago after hearing that employment could be se cured there. He located his family in a house at the corner of Seventeenth and Mary land streets and at once secured work. He had not been employed three days when he was struck over the head and was taken home in an unconscious con dition. Since that time he has been confined to his bed and the only means of sup port for his family has been the work that his brave little wife could do when she was not scrubbing her own kitchen or taking care of her six little children and her sick husband. But when the police entered the home and saw how bravely she had tried to keep things together and discovered that in spite of her brave efforts she and her children had eaten no food for three days, the hearts of the officers melted and they determined to see that she was properly cared for. Provisions were also made to look after the five other families which were found to be in dire need of as sistance and they, too, will be taken care of. OW Lt'DDEJE'S LUXCH JOB. C. A.

N MOUNTED POLICE Marshal Klopf Issues Order and Carries it Out Himself. An innovation in police work has been started by Marshal Edward Klopf or Miller, In demanding that the police force, consisting of Patrolman Edward Klopf, be hereafter mounted. In com pliance with the order therefore, Mr. Klopf has purchased a big stalwart horse with which he patrols his beat, consisting of the entire town, night and day. The sight of the uniformed of ficer parading down the main streets of the city on his gallant steed has so awed the natives of the city that they are as meek as lambs and stand at all times ready to obey his every com mand. Mr. Klopf received his horse Monday and has spent the fore part of the week in trying out the animal. Mean while, the officials of the city are about to arrange an official review of the mounted force as soon as the spirited animal can agree with the marshal as to the proper way to conduct himself on such occasions and live up to its requirements while on duty. Late this afternoon when a number of the " knights of the road" were seen scurrying through Gary, bound west ward, they were stopped and questioned by the local police. They reported that they had been surprised in an attack from an attachment of the United States cavalry and were hasten ing to lengthen the breach between themselves and the enemy. Further investigation showed that the mounted police force of Miller had driven them out of town, and the "bos" have re solved to scratch Miller off their list of supply stations on future tours in this vicinity. The new idea introduced ia the city has proven to be wonderfully supcprs- ! ful. Mr. Klopf sits at his desk in the Jail, and when the telephone bell rings 9133-9135 Commercial Ave, South Chicago's Leading Furniture Store and he receives a call to stop a fistic encounter in some portion of the town, he leads forth his trusty assistant and dashes down the main thoroughfares to the scene of the trouble. If the of fender happens to be unmanageable or drunk the horse is at once hitched to a wagon or cart of some kind and the outfit is easily converted into an im provised patrol wagon and is driven to the station. Runaways of all descrip tions can be stopped with ease by the mounted police force and the horse will serve as a protector of life and limb It is needless to say that the whole town is boasting far and wide of the latest improvement in public utilities and the idea may soon be taken up by mirna in me vicinity Open Monday Thursday Saturday Evenings board and ask that thev at lPP..t mnf,. their program and come down to earth. en, riuipie or the "uncruplousness '& of some of tho rio , . A , H ...mjr euiaie men a circular issued from a Gary land office in a ioreign language informed the foreigner to whom it was addressed, that there had been 40,000 men hired in Gary and that there were 75,000 more to be given work. The foreigners out of work come to the office of the real estate man and if they have any property or any money and can be induced to-buy a lot so much the better. Usually, .however. they have no mones-, they find they -cannot get work and they roam around in the streets of Gary giving that city the appearance of being slighted by the industrial de pression when the facts are that it has stood the panic better than was to be expected of a boom town. It has been decreed that any real estate man in the Commercial club or any member or the real estate board who will deliberatly misinform the peo ple outside of the city as to conditions in the hope of landing a straggling land buyer will be forced out of their organizations. This may lead to a war between the responsible and the Irresponsible ele ment among the real estate men but the conservative business men of the city think that war will haive to come sooner or later any way and they would Just as soon force the issue now as Jater on. a ixm THE 1 ii.w 1 i h , 1 1; Slicker 0Y0UKN0W TVET WEATHER COMFORT AND PROTECTION afforded by a san -Light Durable Guaranteed iWaterproof 3?o Everywhere J TOwr CO BOSTON u i A """"BBBKM I Horses, Horses orses .f5 10 BUILD M PLAN Fortune Bros.
