at the last moment to take advantage
of the opportunity to be r.dmitted to
practice before the tribunal. He
made an effort to approach the court
and was stopped by an attendant,
who asked him if he was a member of
the bar. The reply was in the nega
tive. Mr. Starr thereupon was in
vited to take a seat among the spec
tators. When Senator Fairbanks was
about to make the motion in Mr.
Starr's behalf he was unable to lo
cate him. Mr. Starr will make the
attempt again at a later date.

THE UNION STATION
RESTED HERE THIS
ON CHARGE OF
Sum of Money Missing at Kendall
ville and King Charged With
Two .Panhandle detectives arrived
this morning from Kendallville, Ind.,
with a warrant for the arrest of Jo
seph W. King, on a charge of embez
zlement. Until about two weeks ago
King was a G. R. & I. railroad opera
tor at Kendallville and was sup
posed to be an honest and good
young man. Then he suddenly left
Kendallville and came to Richmond,
where he accepted a position as
night operator at the Union station.
A few days ago it was discovered at
Kendallville that quite a sum of rail
road money was missing there and
that King must have taken it. The
night operator there is also ticket
agent and this is how King got the
money. It is not definitely known
exactly how much was taken but at
all account it was a considerable
sum. The detectives left for Ken
dallville this afternoon with King in
charge, where he will be tried on a
charge of embezzlement.
One who has heard Mme. Sehu-mann-IIeink,
"To commence with Mme. Schu-mann-IIeink
has really a majestic
voice, and her command of it is well
nigh perfect as her flawless execu
tion of the two octave jump in the
famous 'Brindisi' proves. In all pas
sages that lie between the natural
range of her voice her emission is
smooth, sonorous and productive of
unfailing beauty of tone. Her phras
ing is almost invariably . the perfec
tion of art and enunciation of the
text shows a perfect command of vo
calization. These features of her
method enable her to sing such
things as the 'Brindisi' area with all
the beauty of olor ever imparted to
it by an Italian singer, while with
her keen intelligence, her glowing
temperament, her subtle humor and
her winsome personality enables her
to fill the hollow melody with a
wealth of vitality, unequaled by any
other singer now before the public.
She is gifted with true artistic tem
perament. This great artist is now making
her "fare. veil" concert tour in
America and she is engaged to give a
recital here on Thursday evening,
February 1Kb at the Coliseum.
Though this concert is announced as
her "farewell' it does not mean that
she is to retire from the stage, but
in the future is to devote her time
to opera solelv. , . I

IN A HORRIBLE MANNER ON
THE PANHANDLE RAIL
ROAD. HURLED FIFTY FEET
Mr. Wolff, the Victim, Was a Par
mer, About Sixty-Five Years
A very shocking accident was wit
nessed yesterday morning by the
passengers on No. 14, which, leaves
here for New York at 9:50 a. m.
Near Air Hill, about thirty-five miles
from here, the train struck and killed
Mr. Henry Wolff, a farmer about
sixty-five years old. Mr. Wolff is
very deaf and did not hear the train
He was walking with his head
down against the Avind and his hat
pulled low over his eyes and the
train, suddenly rounding a curve,
struck him full and hurled him fifty
feet in the air. Every bone in the
man's body was broken. He was lift
ed into the train and carried to Day
ton, where the train coroner held an
inquest over the dead body. No. 14
was an hour late and was striving
to make up the lost time, and the
engineer, on account of the curve,
was not able to apply the brakes
soon enough to prevent hitting the
TO SELL OUT
His Stock and Retire From
(Special to Palladium.)
Cambridge City, Ind., Jan. 30. S.
B. Fisher, one of our worthy business
men will soon have a closing out
sale of his stock of shoes. Mr.
Fisher came here from Dublin in
1872, accepting a position as clerk in
Frank Mat Us' shoe store.
In 1874 Mr. Fisher began working
as repair man in the shoe store of S.
L. Wheeler. He worked there a few
months then he and Mr. WTheeler
went into partenrship. In 18S2 the
partnership was mutually dissolved
and each began business for himself.
Mr. Fisher occupied the building
now used as J. W. Marson's furni
ture department until 1900. Since
then he has occupied the new building
of C. T. Wright. By his genial ways he
occupied. By his genial ways he
has won many friends, and the public
regrets very much to lose him. It is
hoped that Mr. Fisher will remain
in Cambridge City and will still be
an active business man as heretofore.
GREAT INTEREST TAKEN IN
DIRECTION PROF. CHASE
A Complete Performance of Haydn's
Famous Imperial Mass, to In
Great interest is being felt in col
lege and musical circles in the ap
proaching concert of the Earlharn
Oratorio society, which is set for
sometime about the middle of March.
It is expected by the director of the
chorus, Prof. Chase, that the stand
ard set by the rendition last 3ear of
"The Creation" will be equaled, if
not surpassed, by the work of this
year. Last year the management wras
fortunate in securing some of the
best soloists in the United States and
it is believed that the quartet of
singers brought to Richmond this 3ear
will insure even better results.
The main feature of the program
will be a complete performance of
Haydn's famous Imperial Mass; this
is considered by musicians to stand
among the very first of the great re
ligious choral compositions and a sat
isfactory rendition of it is an event.
The second part of the program will
include the "Inflammatus" from
Rossini's Stabat Mater, by Miss
Blamere, of Chicago, and the chorus,
and the "Sanctus" from Gounod's
Messe Sollemnelle, containing one of
the finest arrangements for tenor solo
and chorus ever written; each one of
the soloists will, have an. opportunity
in this half of the program to be
heard in some great aria.
The exact time of the concert will
be announced within a couple of days,
but the date, is set early so as not to
conflict with the performances of the
May Festival chorus. This concert
by the Earlharn society is coming to
be looked upon as an annual event
and "much enthusiasm is shown among
the members of the chorus, which un
doubtedly surpasses that of last year.
