Cambridge City, Ind., Feb. 26.
The ordinance passed by the town
council, requiring the interurban
cars to stop at all street crossings,
became effective last Monday, but
the company refused to comply with
On Monday, as Frank Lanieh came
from Dublin on the car, he attempted
to have the car stop at the corner
of Main and Foot street, but Con
ductor Wessel informed him that the
car did not stop at that crossing, so
he was taken down to the interurban
restuarant corner, the usual stopping
place. Mr. Lanieh then filed a com
plaint before Dan Petro, town clerk,
who ordered the arrest of Mr. Wessel
and Owen Forrester, motormen,which
was done by Marshal Ulerich. The
men were released on bond furnished
by the interurban company, and the
trial was set for yesterday afternoon.
The case was called for trial, but
the interurban company appealed it
to the circuit court, and the trial has
been set for March 9.
The public in general regrets the
arrest of the gentlemen very much,
as Mr. "Wessel is one of the most ac
commodating conductors on the road.

MUDDLE CLEARED UP BY THE
MAIN STREET MER
CHANTS. COMPLETE INFOR
Rost, Marshall Company The Unit
ed Salvage Company, of Chica
go Have Been Called in to
It was said in yesterday's Palla
dium that it was likely that all need
of secrecy in regard to the difficulties
of a certain prominent Main street
firm of merchants in securing leases
on the building .which they occupy
would be past by today and that the
names would be given. It is indeed
a pleasure to say, at this point, that
the forecast was a true one and that
the leases have been closed to the sat
isfaction of both landlord and ten
ants. The old corner of ninth and
Main streets, which has been made
such a popular one by Rost, Marshall
company and which everybody who
is really anybody knows as the loca
tion of the Big Store, and where any
one at all familiar with Richmond
could find his way blindfolded, is to
undergo complete repair. Spacious
show windows will take the place of
the wall facing east, and the interior
will be thoroughly remodeled upon
the very latest designs. In fact, it
will be made into the most modern
store room possible. When these and
all other contemplated changes in the
building have been made, Rost, Mar
shall company expect to install a de
partment store which shall lack noth
ing in the lines of ready to wear
clothing and shoes for men, women
Now, in advance of these vast im
provements, and to close out the
goods so that there shall be room for
them to be made, these gentlemen
have engaged a prominent Chicago
salvage company to conduct a mon
ster sale, beginning Saturday, March
5th. The United Salvage company,
of Chicago, has been engaged on ac
count of their well-known reputation
for moving the goods. They will sell
them very cheap, to be sure, but when
they take charge, it is like Mr. Rost
says: "The goods will be sold at
what they are worth to the buyers
who attend this forced sale, regard
less of how much more they have
cost Rost, Marshall company, "
All seekers for real bargains are
urged to watch the daily papers and
the large bills for detailed informa
tion concerning this great salvage
sale. This paper will contain a full
page advertisement tomorrow, giving
all needed information about this un
usual sale. It will be useless to in
quire at the store after Saturday
night, February 27, as it will be
shut up tight until the day of the
sale, Saturday, March oth.
