Evansville, Ind., Feb. 18. Fire de
stroyed ten residences in the Howell
railroad addition to the city. The loss
Is $10,000. There was a high wind
and the bucket brigade was powerless.
Evansville fire companies went to the
relief of the suburb, but on account of
the low water pressure in the city
mains were compelled to rely on chem
icals in the assistance rendered. City
officials have gone to Louisville, Cin
cinnati and St. Louis for engines. The
water situation is slightly relieved.
Two pumpboats are in commission at
the old water works and one at the
West Side station, and another pump
will be installed at the old works.

SUES HER MOTHER-IN-LAW
Crawfordsville Woman Asks for Ten
Thousand Dollars Damages.
Crawfordsville,' Ind., Feb. 18 The
$10,000 damage suit of Mrs. June Gregg
against Mrs. Sarah M. Gregg is in pro
gress in the Montgomery circuit court
and owing to their social prominence
the trial is attracting large attention.
The defendant is the mother of the
plaintiff's divorced husband and the
widow of Samuel H. Gregg, for many
years a leading citizen of Crawfords
ville. It is alleged in the complaint
that the defendant alienated the af
fections of the plaintiff's husband,
George M. Gregg, and it is for this
that damages are sought. The plain
tiff during .her married life lived with
her husband at the home of his par
ents, and the charges she makes
against her mother-in-law are of a sen
sational character. A number of so
ciety people of Crawfordsville have
been summoned as witnesses and a
bitter contest is expected. The de
fendant is quite wealth- and has al
ways stood high in the commnuity.
Religion Breaks Up Hc-ne.
Marion. Ind.. Feb. IS. H. H. Dunn,
an employe of the Malleable iron
works, went, to his homo Monday night
after finishing his day's labor and
found his house empty and his wife,
and foTir children missinsr. All efforts
to find them have proved unavailing.
Dunn told the police that his wife and
oldest son. .sixteen years of age, had
become religious fanatics and had urg
ed him to join church, which he re
fused to (In. He said his wife had
come to the conclusion that it was
sinful for her to live with him unless
he was a n.ornber of the church, and
for this reason she had deserted him.
Schafer Murder Case.
Bedford. Ind., Feb. 18. The grand
Jury has not yet taken up the Schafer
murder case for investigation. Noth
ing will be done until next Monday,
when the entire attention of the grand
jury will be given thereto. There is
no excitement because of the delay,
the people" being satisfied to wait for
possible developments, hopeful that
th mystery will yet be solved-

Congressional Candidates Must Not
Name Their Own Delegates.
Indianapolis, Feb. IS. The decision
of the Republican state committee
that no candidate for congress or other
office will be permitted to name his
own delegates is liable to have a most
disastrous effect on the candidacy of
Fred Landis of Logansport for renom
ination. A prominent Eleventh ' dis
trict Republican who was here today
declared that the anti-Steele combina
tion could never have won last year
If the candidates had not been permit
ted to name their own delegates. With
an open field he asserted that Major
Steele will be able to break into the
anti-Steele ranks in Wabash, Cass and
Blackford counties and" get enough to
win. He predicted that Steele would
be at least fifteen per cent stronger
In looking after his tiwn candidacy
than he was in looking after the inter
ests of Elam Neal of Jonesboro for
The statement was made here today
on what was apparently reliable au
thority that Hugh Th. Miller of Colum
bus has finally determined to become
a candidate for the Republican nom
ination for lieutenant governor and
that he will make a public announce
ment to that effect within a few days,
possibly this week. It was also de
clared that If Miller enters Walter
Ball of Muncie, former state senator,
will become a candidate, so there is
a prospect that the field for second
place will fill as it did for governor
after all the politicians had concluded
that Taylor and Hanly would have it
all to themselves. The friends cf L.
P. Newby who Is the only avowed can
didate for lieutenant governor are not
dismayed at the prosper of opposition
but on the contrary seem to be pleased
as they say they will know what to do
if they are certain just who they will
have to fight.
"Billy" Taylor, the Indianapolis can
didate for the Republican nomination
for governor, is full of enthusiasm over
his prospects of winning. He took oc
casion today to contradict a story that
is going the rounds that he lost in
the Rush county primaries for the se
lection of delegates. He says that
he is sure of eight of the thirteen del
egates and may get more. The friends
of .Hanly, however, expect to get nine
of the delegates. Taylor is not dis
mayed because the Twelfth district J
endorsed Judge Penfield, as Penfield j
lives there and the endorsement was j
naturally expected, but Taylor says j
he will get the district when the final :
round comes. His ohiee is just now j
one of the busiest places in Indianap-
olis for he is carrying on a tremendous

Will be Drawn In Building Construe
tion From Baltimore Fire.
Baltimore, Feb. 18. -As indicating
that the situation in Baltimore is eas
ing up, the civil and military authori
ties express the opinion that it will be
safe to withdraw all the troops from
the burned district at the end of an
other week. Another significant indi
cation is the announcement that the
issuance of permits to rebuild on the
streets that are not to be widened will
begin within two or three days.
A committee composed of nine mem
bers of the national board of under
writers is here to prepare an exhaus
tive report' on the conditions of al
leged fireproof buildings after the fire
and to make recommendations as to
those who propose to rebuild. It is
agreed by these experts that the most
advanced ideas of fireproof construc
tion have undergone their first real
test in th Baltimore fire and the pur
pose of the present investigation is to
make the most of the lesson. All the
Insurance experts here say that the
data to be gleaned from the recent
conflagration here will compensate in
a measure for the loss sustained and
they are making extensive prepara
tions to study the effect the fire had
on what was supposed to be absolute
fire proof construction and to draw

1 CAUTIOUS FOLI
Japan Is Most Successfully
Keeping Her Yav Plans
ENEMY KEPT IN I) AUK
Not a Single Item That Would, bo of
Service to itussia Has Been Per
milted to Leak Out.
The Opinion Prevails That Third
Battle Has Taken Place at Port
Arthur Cable Cut.
Sasabo, Japan, Feb. 18. The opin
ion of Japanese naval officers here Is
that a third fight has occurred off Port
Arthur. Some of the Russian war
vessels have been reported as leaving
Harbin, Manchuria, Feb. 18. The
Manchurian newspapers publish a
manifesto by the Czar, countersigned
by the high mandarians which recalls
the benefits China has derived from
the friendship of Russia.
Che Foo, Feb. 18. The Port Arthur
Che Foo cable was cut yesterday.
London, Feb. 18. Japan is most
successfully keeping her plans secret.
Not a single item of news which could
be of possible service to the enemy
has been permitted to leak out. The
belief is prevalent in London, based
on hints in dispatches from corres
pondents, is that her main object will
be found to be the Liao Tung penin
sula, but that nothing of a military
nature will be attempted until Russia's
naval squadrons are effectually dis
Dispatches published in London
newspapers continue to give alleged
descriptions of the embarking of Jap
anese troops. Instead of this embark
ation occurring secretly from Ujina,
as was the case during the China-Japanese
war, the transports, according
to published dispatches, are openly
embarking troops from Nagasaki, Mo
ji, Kobe and elsewhere.
A cablegram from Nagasaki says
troops are clearing every night from
these ports for Korea and ten large
steamers were embarking troops at
Nagasaki last Monday. All arms of
the service were represented, but the
cavalry horses were such scrubby pon
ies that they hardly seemed worth
transporting. Tne embarkations were
all remarkably well managed. Num
erous shallow sampans (small harbor
boats), as well as ordinary boats suit
able for being rowed or towed in
shallow water or through a heavy
surf are taken on the transports. In
conclusion this correspondent says
the harbor of Nagasaki has been

AN ABLE ALLY
Winter Will Help Russians as It Did
In Napoleon's Time.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 18. The rigid
censorship imposed here upon all
news from the far East completely
masks the movements of Russian
troops and the plans of those in com
mand; but what is being done is evi
dently satisfactory to the authorities
here as they manifest the utmost con
fidence that when the proper time ar
rives the enemy wiil be crushed . They
say that the preliminary sea victories
of the Japanese will then be speedily
forgotten. Russia was taken unawares
at the outset, and some little time
will be required to complete the mob
ilization of Russian troops. There will
Le no disposition to meet the evident
wish of the Japanese to rush matters
to a decision.
"Russia can afford to wait," is a com
mon expression heard here, and time
and patience always have been strong
allies of the empire of the North.
Moreover, the excessively severe win
ter weather at the scene of war, it Is
averred, also fights on the side of the
Czar's legions as it did in the days of
Napeolon, when the Russian proverb
"January, February and March are
among the emperor's ablest generals"
At Port Arthur the thermometer reg
isteres two degrees below zero. The
concentration of Russian troops will
proceed as rapidly as possible, but it
Is fair to assume that Viceroy Alexieff
will not take the aggressive until he
feels certain of his ability to admin
ister a decisive defeat. Therefore, in
spite of the extensive landing opera
tions of the Japanese in Korea, an
important land fight is not considered
here to be imminent, although it is
believed that the passage of the Yalu
river by the Japanese will be disputed.
A government communication pub
lished in the official Messenger warns
the public that it must wait patiently
for news of Russian victories and says
It is useless to waste men in seeking
