Stephens and Haywood, who recently opened a hardware store on CUT DOME SPEED Says the East Chicago City Council, or We Will Fine You. (Special to The Times). East Chicago, Ind., Sept. 5. An or dinance will be prepared and presented to the councilmanlc body at its next regular meeting, on Tuesday evening, prohibiting the excessive speed of au tomobiles on, streets of East Chicago and Indiana Harbor. The movement was started last evening by residents of Magoun avenue, who for several months have been terrorized by the speeding of motorists down that street at speeds ranging from 10 to 30 miles an hour. The avenue is a favorite speedway with Hammond and Crown Point en thusiasts. Hammond automobilists find it welcome as a speedtester after a trip over the usual Hessville course. On reaching East Chicago they im mediately make for Magoun avenue, which is the best paved street in' the city and put the speed lever on the last notch. The street is almost a mile long, and citizens have timed sev eral and fixed the speeds at over 20 miles an hour. Last evening one of these flyers passed down the street going so fast that its shape could not be distin guished. Three small . children . were playing in the road, near the curb, yet so intent was the driver on his speed ing that he failed to even give the usual honk-honk. The children nar rowly escaped being run over and were badly frightened. This is a peril that citizens of resi dence districts should not .have to con tend with and the action of the coun cil in regulating speed on such streets to less than five miles an hour would be given the support of East Chicago ans in general. WATCHING GOAL FIGHT Citizens of Indiana Harbor Hope That Prices Will be Scalped. (Special to The Times). Indiana Harbor, Ind.. Sept. 5. Citi zens of Indiana Harbor are interested in a fight which has been going on between Chicago and local coal deal ers for the past two months. Manufac turers are especially interested in its outcome and ares miling broadly at the cutting which is being made in carload prices on all grades of coals. The Harman Coal company, a Chi cago corporation, which, according to local dealers, is unable to do anything but a scalping business, has had a man in this field for several weeks. He is Charles Chamberlain, and his persist ent reductions on car lots has aroused the ire and antagonism of the Harbor companies. Chamberlain started in with a cut of five cents per ton on carload lots. The Harbor companies, not to be out done, granted a decrease of seven cents, to which the Pioneer Lime & Coal company, Indiana Harbor Lumber & Coal company, and the Mentzer Coal company agreed. Chamberlain, on se curing permission from his company, immediately opened war on the local dealers and steadily increased his cut from one to two cents per ton daily. The cut is made only on carload lots and therefore appeals strongly to big buyers. Decreases ranging from 15 to 25 cents per ton have now been made on all carload quotations. This, ac cording to buyers themselves, is an unprecedented decrease and they are naturally highly pleased with it. The Pioneer Lime & Coal company, ne of the oldest corporations in the city, will meet any price offered by the scalpers, and will endeavor to re tain the bulk of Indiana Harbor trade In local circles. Their expression is but a general thought issued by other coal and lumber dealers. Michigan avenue, near Grapevine, are contemplating the installation of a modern set of counter cases. J. B.- Maling, who has been visitng with W. W. Moberly for several days, is spending a short period with friends in Lafayette, Ind. The South Bay hotel-Inland hospi tal deal has evidently fallen through In an interview with Manager Barker yesterday afternoon, The Times repre sentative was informed that nothing had been said to the local management concerning such a proposition. The news will meet with the disapproval of Harborities, who have long felt the need of a suitable hospital in this city. Physicians are especially interested and there is talk in medical circles of commencing a project for the construc tion of a city general hospital, to be under the Jurisdiction of the city of ficials. May the project meet with suc cess! Sam Bernatti has moved his barber shop to that of Peter VolantI, on Mich igan avenue and entered into a part nershop with his former employe. The Infant son of Mrs. W. Hickey, of Chicago, died in Oklahoma yester day, where Mrs. Hickey has been visit ing her brother, George Melekinskl. The child was about five months' old and will be buried in a Chicago ceme tery. Mrs. Joseph Perry, of Fir street, left last evening for Rochester, Minn., where she will undergo an operation. She will return in about two weeks. CARL ANDERSON GDCEBAL CONTRACTOR Building and Sidewalks A SPECIALTY 1 TclephM J. B. Bn. tn, GRAFT CRUSADERS MEET East Chicago Improvement Association Again De nounces Council. (Special to The Times). East Chicago, Ind., Sept. 5. Fifty members , of the anti-graft crusade league, known as the Improvement as sociation, held their regular meeting in Moss hall last evening and laid plans for a campaign of unusual force against the councilmen of East Chi cago. Officers were elected for the en suing year and eleven new subscrip tions taken In, aggregating about $15. The finance committee reported con siderable progress and displayed con fidence that they would be able to raise at least $200 within the next two or three weeks. Council Denounced. The meeting was very mild but was livened a trifle by the condemnation of the council by Colonel Walsh. He denounced the action of the council in disposing of $28,000 worth of city bonds for the construction of a new fire hall at Indiana Harbor. "It is both criminal and unjust to the tax payers of the city," said Mr. Walsh, "and they should be bitterly prose cuted." A resolution was also passed asking all taxpayers to Join the association for the purpose of bettering civic con ditions. The next meeting of the as sociation will be in Moss hall a week from next Friday evening, at which time plans will be strengthened for the crusade against vice and graft. Member Charles Pltzele, who is the power behind the throne on matters concerning the council, was out of the city and unable to attend the meeting. ROMANIANS CELEBRATE Sunday and Monday to be Important Days For Church Societies. (Special to The Times). Indiana Harbor, Ind., Sept. 5. Sun day and Monday will be important days in the history of local Roumanian and Croatian societies. Tomorrow the union of the entire Roumanian organ izatlons of the United States will meet in convention in this city, forty-three societies being repreesnted by dele gates and their families. It is esti mated that fully 2,000 Roumanians will be entertained by local socities. The day's church ceremonies will be held in the Roumanian Greek Ortho dox church under the direction of Rev S. Mihaltan. A large parade in the afternoon, . followed by addresses by prominent speakers and a banquet at 6:30 at which I. Leon Gould, an In dianapolis attorney, will be the prin cipal speaker, are some of the features of the day. On Monday morning, the assembly will again meet on parade and will be Joined by the local Croatlon societies, who have chosen Labor day as a fitting date on which to dedicate a new flag. Among the speakers who will ad dress the lodges are I. Leon Gould of Indianapolis, Rec. S. Mihaltan, J. Su- fana and M. Nickoleska, all of Indiana Harbor, as well as representatives of the various state orders. Mr. Gould is perhaps the best known speaker and will give an excellent patriotic ad dress, impressing upon the Rouman ians the necessity of a republican ad ministration. Mr. Gould is an en thuslastic republican worker and his address will contain many useful sug gestions to his countrymen. The East Chicago police departments have been asked to lead the parade and will be present in full force on both the Sunday and Monday prome nades. Four bands have been engaged to supply the music for the occasion and there is little doubt that the Har bor will indeed be in gala attire. ASKS FOR CONTINUANCE.

Reiland at 9 o'clock this morning to answer the charges of retention, unlawfully, of money paid him by a foreigner.

As the months passed, the friend wrote Lekkos and Informed him that the money had not. been received, and Lekkos at once instituted proceedings. The case has caused a great deal of comment in the Harbor and there is talk of other cases of like nature.

Another kind of pennant Joy was put on exhibition yesterday, when the white sox returned from a victorious trip abroad and whaled Lajoie's Naps, 3 to 2, in eleven furious and sparkling Innings. That the terrible tigers stub bed their toe in St. Louis at the same time made the crowd of 7,500 assem bled at the South Side grounds unusu ally nutty. Only two games separate the sox and Detroits now, and if the former world beaters keep up the pace they showed in their opening struggle Jennings and his fence breakers better look out. There was championship pepper in the actions of the pale shins. ST. LOUIS DRAWS NEAR. St. Louis, Sept. 4. By defeating De troit, 4 to 2, this afternoon St. Louis drew nearer first place in the American League pennant race and now but a game and a half separate the locals from Detroit, which still holds first place. The crowd that witnessed the contest this afternoon was the largest week-day crowd at a game in St. Louis this year. It is estimated that 16,000 people saw the struggle. Ground rules were necessary. Willetts, the Detroit pitcher, was in effective. He was hit .hard from the start, three hits in the first inning giv ing St. Louis two runs after Detroit had opened with one run on a single by Mclntyre, Schaefer's sacrifice and Cofcb's single.

Battling Nel son, at the advice of Willis Britt, has practically decided to cut out boxing for the balance of the time before his bout with Gans except such light work as may be required to keep in play the muscles he uses in wielding the gloves. He will spar lightly with Jeff Cornett and RediPerry, but the outsiders will do oarred. Britt decided on this, as the various lightweights whom he permitted to box with Nelson often became too energetic, and he does not wish the tiattier to enter the ring with a sore face. Kid Dalton met him vesterdav and rushed the Battler so vigorously that many thought he was trying to "slip one over" on Nelson. As Nelson is already down close to weight. Britt aoes not wish him to take off too much flesh by strenuous work. Nelson is said to scale 135 pounds at present. PAPKE IS WORKING FOR SPEED. Spars With Lighter Men In Effort To Develop Rapidity of Action. Los Angeles, Sept. 4. Billey Papke has been doing his utmost to improve his speed and has been working with Charley Lucca and, until two days ago when Phil Brock abandoned his spar ring work, practiced with him. Billy is also taking great interest in road work, and worked with Brock when the latter was following this form of exercise. He is said to be in the best of etiape at present, and Man ager Jones is confident of his condition. Talk of a match between Papke and Langford led to Jones making the statement that his boxer would not oppose colored fighters. Ketchel has two new sparring part ners In the persons of Carl Solomon and Joaquin Coursey, and these bid fair to last as he is working very lightly with them. Papke has two heavy men to shove him about the ring in Sam Coulter and Bill Aldridge. MTARLAND MAY BOX MURPHY. Bout With Eastern Fighter May Be Clinched With New York Club. Packle McFarland and Tommy Mur phy of New York probably will be matched today. Upon receiving offers for a bout between the Chicago light weight and Tommy Murphy from Harry Gibson of the Fairmount Club of New York and from Charley White of the National club in the same city. Man ager Gilmore announced yesterday he probably would accept one of the offers. Gibson offers McFarland, for his end alone, a purse of $1,250, or the privilege of 35 per cent of the gross receipts, Gilmore was aeady negotiating with White for the same bout and wired to him asking for $1,500 for McFarland's end. If this Is accepted the bout will be taken on. MISCELLANEOUS BALL GAMES, At Tamaroa, 111. Tamaroa, 7; Ashley, 5. At Paw Paw, 111. Paw Paw Unions, 8; Pianos, 2. At Mount Vernon, 111.

Judging from the caliber of the teams selected for the Monmouth college football schedule. Coach Reed evidently is con fldent of having a first class team for the season. The schedule follows: Oct. 2 University of Illinois at Cham paign. Oct. 17 Purdue university at Lafay ette. Oct. 24 Normal university of Bloom ington at Monmouth. Oct. 31 Mllliken university at De catur. Nov. 7 Cornell college at Monmouth. Nov. 21 Belolt at Monmouth. JIGGERS. President Dreyfus of the Pittsburg club would like to buy Dan McGann of the Boston nationals. The Chicago Cubs have regained a great deal of lost ground while play ing on their own lot. The New York Highlanders have played better ball since Frank Laporte returned to the fold. Manager Joe Kelley of the Boston Nationals has started to work out a few of his youngsters. Joe hasn't found anything very promising as yet. After playing as good ball as any team In the major leagues the Phila delphia nationals ran Into an open switch at St. Louis. The present eastern trip has been a hoodoo to the Cleveland club. During the last at home series the Naps played rings around everything. The natfonal commission is working hard to stop the "covering up" and "farming" of players, but it is a hard problem to solve. It looks as though McMillan, Brook lyn's latest recruit, will hold his own in major league company. The former South Atlantic leaguer should make a sure hitter with a little experience. HESSVILLE.
