DAILY ESTABLISHEU 187. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1904 ONE CENT A COPY. 0 AROUSE YOURSELYES TO A SENSE OF YOUR DUTY AND ASSIST IN A MATERIAL WAY The South Side Improvement Asso ciation in Its Efforts to Build Up the City. The work that has been done in the past by the South Side Improvement association and the work that they rue now undertaking has aroused a ceneral interest nTtTTe-eity. along the fine of locating good factories and in building up the city in a substantial way. There is no apparent reason why Richmond should not be made one of the most attractive cities in the state for investors and for home seeker. With all the natural advantages that Richmond po-se-ses as a city of 2,ood homes, good churches, and good schools, -with' a low rate of tax ation as will be shown by compari son, good streets, good sidewalks, rood street and railroad accommoda tions, natural sewerage outlets, pure water and good tire protection, Avith banks, trust companies, building, loan and saving associations, public parks, secret and benevolent societies, up-to-daiebusinesshouses of almost every kind, -with a strong county bar, em inent physicians and educators witl more than local reputation, and a population that can not be excelled in stability by any city of like numbers in the middle west, it could be made a manufacturing center. Taking these advantages as a foun dation upon which to build an indus trial city, there could be no bettei beginning. The work begun by the south side people should not be one of local interest only, but should be extended and enlarged until it would include the entire city and surround ing community. What w A an more factories, creating a demand for more labor, making more people to be feed and clothed. Industrious, energetic and thorough-going people will not come to Richmond without an opportunity tc invest their money and work for good Avasres. These conditions can not b( met without more and additional lac tones. These fvr-torics can not be located without money, and the earn est efforts of the people to be benefit ed. This money must come from the people of Richmond who want to see the city grow and lirosper. The proposed industrial move ment will put new life into everything, more money in our banks more business in our stores, and a few thousand more people in our city. Thus putting thousands of dollars' worth of property on the tax booty and more funds in the public treas ury. "We believe that the time has now come for the people of Richmond to get together and show to the out side world that they will be welcome and assisted in locating in our city. HADLE rSIN JURIES How the Accident Occur ed Thrown From Car. Mr. Elmer F. ITadley, who was painfully injured yesterday morninj near Logansport, mention of which was made yesterday in the Palladium, is a freight conductor on the Penn sylvania railroad, Locransport divis ion, with a run between here and that city. Yesterday morning he started out as usual, and, when about two miles from Locransport the accident oc curred. Mr. Iladley was standing on the top of the last car of a long "cut." Suddenly the locomotive started with such force that Mr. ITadley was thrown from the top of the car on to his head and shoulders. He struck a lump of frozen rocks and ice and his face was fearfully torn and lacerated. A doctor was summoned and bandaged his face. Mr. Iladley arrived here at 3:55 yes terday afternoon with his face swathed in bandages, and was taken to his home, 1G10 Main street. This morning he was resting better, and, unless something unforseen at present happens, Avill be able to be about in a few weeks. His injuries are more painful than serious, and will keep him indoors for quite a while. HENRY U. J01S0I His Rapid-Fire Record Broken in the House. The record of Henry U. Johnson, a former member of the house, as the most rapid talker that ever appeared in congress has been broken. Senator Clarke, the new Democrat in the up per body from Arkansas, in his maiden speech, yesterday afternoon, carried away the record that has re mained to the memory to Johnson as legislator. The official stenographer of the senate and house compared uotes yesterday, and found that John son's most rapid fire was 224 words a minute. Senator Clarke reached i speed of 250 words a minute. RUSSIAN Leaves Port Arthur For Unknown Destination. (By Associated Press.) Tokio, Japan, Feb. 4. The govern ment has been informed that Russian fleet has left Port Arthur, the desti nation of which is unknown. prehiTtWrelic Sought After by a Former "Wayne County Ecy. To the Editor of the Palladium: Of late years much ir.terest has been aroused in matters relating tc the antiquity of man in America. There can be no doubt that at one time, in this section of the country there existed the" seat of an ancient civilization which was in the zenith of its power long before the dawn o the Christian era. The various In dian tribes of the plains, seem to be intruders on a fairer civilization whose earth works and mounds ar rapidly being leveled by the plow o modern times, and future generations can onlj" learn from books and their imperishable works in stone, of the mysterious r?ce whose origin is shrouded in the mists of countless centuries. It is with the hope that I may en courage the preservation of these works of art in stone, that I write. All through vour section of the coun try are found many "Indian Rel ics," such as axes, nestles, pipes, slate ornaments, arrow and spear heads, and mar v other strange stones, which should be carefully preserved where they may be of service to sci ence. To a collection now numbering up ward of one thousand pieces, I de sire to add many others, which I in tend shall ultimately be placed in a worth- institution for the study and edification of future generations. With this in view. I would be pleaded to correspond with any persons who may have even a few single speci mens in their possession. Kindl- address W. II. Shrawder, 1343 Montezuma, St., E. E. Pitts burg, Pa. Of Hearing Prof. Royce While in the City. Prof. Royce, who lectured at high school hall this afternoon, and who will lecture at Earlham college to night is stopping at the Westcott. President Kelly, of Earlham, in forms the Palladium that he has made an arrangement with Prof. Roce to give a lecture in the college chapel tomorrow morning at S:30 on the subject, "George Fox, the Mystic." This will be a treat for the stu dents, as well as the public, as all are extended an invitation to be present. FLEET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY LAW OF 1903 I DECLARED SO BY HON. A. C. HARRIS WHO WAS -ASKED TO RENDER A DECISION By the State Republican Committee Wayne County Not Effected. A committee of eminent lawyers, of which Addison C. Harris, of Iiu anapolis, is chairman, has been so lected to decide the question as to whether or not new county treasurers in a number of the counties in Indi ana shall be elected at the November election of this year. The law of the last legislature is believed to cinflic with the constitution as regards the election of county treasurers, and the Republican state central committee has employed these lawyers to give their opinion as to its constitutional ity. Report Made. Addison C. Harris, to whom was referred the legality of the law of 1903 in regard to elections, has de clared the same unconstitutional. The act of 1903 extends the terms of cer tain county and judicial offices so that the terms of all such offices shall begin upon the same day and uni formity be secured. "The act provides in substance that there shall be no election in 1904 for county officers and certain other officers whose terms of office will ex pire before the general elections in the years 1904, 190G, 100S, and 1910. If the act is void as to the election of 1904 it is void as to the remaining elections; so that it will be sufficient to inquire whether it is invalid as to the election of 1904. If the act is in valid as to the county officers it is likewise invalid as to judicial offi cers. And if it is invalid as to some, the act must fail altogether, for if void in part the act must fail in to to." The action does not effect Wayne county in any way, although a num ber of counties will have to elect treasurers and other officers. The only way in which Ave would be effected would be the election of an auditor in two years. We have it on the authority of the county chairman and secretary that the ruling will not interfere with Wayne county politics. INTERiMNSCREW Had Considerable Trouble the Early Part of the Week. The interurban crews had troubles of their own Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. The strong west wind Tuesd.iy afternoon blew the fine snow into the cut between Westville and the National road faster than it could be shoveled out and great dif ficulty was experienced in getting ears through it. On one trip the car got stuck and could go neither for ward or backward, and the passeng ers helped to shovel snow until it was finally released. Wednesday fore noon a car got off the track between Westville and Richmond, blocking the road for several hours, and the New Paris car was put out of busi ness until afternoon. OUR CORRESPONDENT. (Cambridge City Tribune.) The correspondence of Miss Anna Freeman to the' Richmond Palladium is a model of concise conception and grammatical diction. She is a high school pupil and her opportunity for news is limited to the short interval between studies, but she succeeds so admirably and phrases her ?items in such t easy 'way that at once places her at the' head of the amateur class 1C0NSTITUT ONAL CLOSING WEEK OF THE C. C. L. OFFICES IN THIS CITY ALL WILL BE IN CINCINNATI MONDAY. W. i. ALLEN'S RESIGNATION Creates Considerable Surprise in This City His Successor. Next Monday morning Richmond will be a mere way station on the C. C. & L. R. R., The packing is going on very rapidly now and the nervous strain is growing greater each day. Up to Saturday evening the general ollice work will be done in the Ma sonic Temple. Monday morning the ollice work will be done in the fourth floor of the Carew building, Cincin nati. This removal will of necessity call for some very fast work on the part of the force that has charge of the moving. The Carew building is now being fitted up and the files and everything which is not absolutely necessary have been moved there. The force is starting to pack the office paraphernalia in boxes, etc., prepara tory to the grand departure. This moving of the C. C. & L. of fices will take several well-known persons from Richmond. As some of the ollice force were former residents of Cincinnati the change will not be so great for them but for the Richmond residents it will be rather hard. The following people go with the offices: President Bradford, Vice President Christy, J. A. Craves, B. II. Harris, W. B. Calloway, J. A. Sheppard, II. J. Jackson, C. II. Chaplin, Everet Wallace, T. II. Gurney, Frank Owen, S. L. Strauss, Clifford Bey, Fred Shubert, Ben Harris, Edith Elmore, Ralph Reed, Howard Bender, Herbert Snyder, Elmer Unthank. Eighteen of the men are employed in the auditor's office, but as most of them formerly lived in Cincinnati the change will be natural. By the moving of the offices Richmond will lose about thirty-five persons. In regard to change of time the Enquirer of yesterday says: "Passenger service over the Chi cago, Cincinnati & Louisville road will be inaugurated out of Cincin- fnati next Sunday, the first train leav ing here at 7:45 a. m. "To start off with, the company will have tAvo trains daily each way. There will be a train leaving here at 7:45 a. m. for Richmond, Muncie, Marion, Peru and North Judson, and one at 5:15 p. m. for Richmond. Muncie and Marion. "Trains will arrive here at 11:3C a. ra. daily and 6:55 p. m. daily, ex cept Sunday, when it will arrive at 9:10 p. m.'"' The announcement of the resigna tion of W. I. Allen came in the na ture of a great surprise to our peo ple. Mr. Allen is a splendid rail road man, of high moral standing in the community, a man of superior in tellect and with a knowledge of rail roading second to none in the coun try. Through his magnificent super vision the C, C. & L. rapidly gained a place in the railroad world, and through his kindly disposition and consideration for his fellows, he en deared himself to all with whom he had dealings. As to Mr. Allen's successor there is nothing definitely known, and will not be until Mr. Allen returns, which will likely be tomorrow. RAILROADS1 Change of Time on the Panhandle. Effective next Sunday there will be a change of time on the Pennsylvania Trains Nos. 11 and 12 between Cin cinnati and Chicago are to be dis continued. A new train, No. 31, is to be put on to run between Cincinnati and Lo gansport, Jnd., leaving Cincinnati at 2:35 p. m., and arriving' at Logans port at 8:15 p. m. Train 19, between this city and Lo gansport, will be discontinued, and another new train, known as No. 41, between this city and Cincinnati, will be put on, leaving here at 7 a. m. and arriving at Cincinnati at 9:20 a. m. Train 47 will leave Cincinnati at 5 p. m. daily, instead of 7:05 p. m. on week 'days, and will arrive here at 7:25 p. m. The mail car now run from Richmond to Logansport with train 11 will after Sunday be on train 31. $250,000 FAILURE California Firm Involved For That Amount. (By Associated Press.) San Francisco, Cal., Feb. 4. Bol ton, Dcpuyter & company have sent out notices calling a meeting of their creditors. It is thought the amouni involved in the failuie will approxi mate $250,000. The losses are chief ly by local customers. STRAHGE WOMAN AT DION STATION WAS TAKEN TO THE HOME OF THE FRIENDLESS. REFUSES TO TALK MUCH And Only Nods Assent to Questions Asked Her. There was another waif's pitiful case at the Union station last even ing. About half past 5 a young girl got off of No. 18, the fast train from Chicago. The girl seemed to be one of hundreds of rather poor peo ple and was dressed poorly and car ried an old-fashioned carpet-bag. On entering the station she sank down on a seat and told Miss Margaret Fitz gerald, the matron, that she washed to be taken to the Woman's home. The girl seemed not to understand the questions put to her, and would not speak, but only nod her head. She would not tell where she came from, whom she sought, or what she wanted, save that her home was somewhere in Virginia and only asked to be taken to the "Woman's home." She would nod an affirmative to one question and a moment later nod a negative to the same question. Finally, since neither Miss Fitz gerald nor any one else was able to obtain information from her, she Avas conveyed to the Home of the Friend less. But the matron there exper ienced the same difficulty in regard to getting the girl to speak. The girl Avas densely ignorant, as could be seen from her face, but the strangest part was her evident . unwillingness or inability to speak. She is prob ably halfwitted, although all her ac tions go to prove the contiary. Richmond seems to be a sort of ren dezvous for waifs, etc., at present. A few weeks ago a girl, who came from Terre Haute, arrived here and wanted to go to Bellaire, Ohio. Miss Fitzgerald sent her to the home of the Friendless, and she is still there. Two letters and a tele gram have been sent to the people whom she claimed as relatives, but as yet no answer has been received nor is there any probability of any beinir received. C. W. Ferguson, administrator of the estate of Minus Strickler, asks the court to give Russell Strickler $1, 000 of the $2,000 left. George A. Horney and Eva Quigley have been licensed to marry. The Miller bastardy case was be fore the court this afternoon. Mrs. Wm. Daken and son are visit ing in Hagerstown. ; COURT HOUSE READY FOR THE CONTEST A LARGE DELEGATION WILL GO FROM EARLHAM TO THE STATE MEETING Students Go in Three Divisions on Interurban Cars Alma Mater Song.

The other two cars leave at noon and 4:30 in the afternoon. The ma jority of the students will take the noon car. Mr. Feeger was never better than he is at the present time, and Earl ham's prospects for winning first place are good. President Kelly spoke in chapel this morning on the place which Mr. Josiah Royce occupies in the philos ophy of the world today. He referred to the two American schools, at Har vard and the University of Chicago, saying that Mr. Royce would prob ably reply to the new philosophy that is being taught at Chicago. Among the many yells and songs which Earlham will use tomorrow night is -the following song by the girls: Alma Mater Song. 1. There's a college fair and true! A college fair and true! A college fair and true! Hurrah! Hurrah! And that college we adore, And its praises we sin o'er, And love it more and more Hurrah! Hurrah! Chorus.
