- Last evening about 6:30 ihe peace
and quiet of the Sabbath wer3 dis
turbed by the report of a pistol, the
ound comuig from the vicinity of
ninth and Main streets. On investi

was done by Harry Alford, manager
of the drug company of the same
For some time past small amounts
of money nave been missed from the
store, from time to time,' and the man

Last evening he thought would be
a good tim? to do a little detective
work, and, accordingly, Mr. Aiford
and the eleik, Harry Cecil, put them
selves in hiding and abided then time.
They did not have to wait long; for
they soon heard the sound of a key
entering the lock of the side door, the
lock turned back and the tall form
of William H. Artis, a former porter
r.t the stoe, entered, and walked
stealthily toward and to the ca-h
register, with which he became famil
iar when hi worked at the store. He
opened th? register and took there
from about $21, pocketed the anie
and was about to retire, when Mr.
Alford called to him to hold up his
hands, pointing a revolver at him.
Jt seems as if the revolver had little
terror for him; for he rushed at the
two men who were in hiding, and a
deperate life and death struggle en
sued. Harry Alford, who held the pistol
in his hand, fired three shots, think
ing to frighten -the negro into sub
mission. The two men were not equal
to the strength of the powerful negro
and Mr. Green, the livery man, who
heard the shots, came to their assist
ance. A great crowd soon congre
gated and excitement ran high.
Officer Golden was called, and,
pfter a fierce fight, landed Artis in the
city jail. The officer had to use his
lub to a considerable extent before
Artis could be taken.
When he was placed in jail and
, searched a key to the store was
found in his pocket, which he had
evidently stolen while he Avorked at

ARE THEY IN POLITICAL UNION
FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF

Other Indiana Congressmen Would
Like a Show.
A special dispatch from Washing

word reached members of the Indiana
delegation in the House of Represen
tatives Saturday to the effect that
Governor Durbin has formed an al
liance with Frank Hanley, of Lafay
ette whereby each will promote the
other's political interests. Durbin as
pires to be Senator Fairbanks' suc
cessor, while Hanley is a candidate
to succeed Durbin.
The combination, says the dispatch,
is invading every district in the state
and is creating perturbation among
other senatorial and gubernatorial
Among the former are Representa
tives Hernenway and C. B. Landis,
who are compelled to neglect their
senatorial canvass by remaining in
Washington while congress is in ses

Mr. Fairbanks to make a formal dec
laration of his candidacy for the Re
publican vice presidential nomination.
The senator has been a receptive can

such an announcement it wilt have a

PERISHED III FLOOD
SUCH ARE THE FEARS OF THE
OWNER OF THE CIRCUS
On the Banks of Two Rivers, Under
Water No Chance For
Peru, Ind., March 28. It is be
lieved that Wallace's menagerie of
wild animals has perished in the flood
caused by the rising of the Wabash
and Mississnewa rivers. The winter
quarters of the Wallace circus occupy
a farm situated at the junction of the
two rivers and on the opposite side
from this city. There is no means of
attempting to rescue the caged ani
mals, nor is there any way of ascer
taining their fate. From a hillside
half a mile this side of the barns it
can be seen that the buildings are
under at least six feet of water, and
Mr. Wallace believes his valuable col
lection of animals has been destroyed
He is unable to place an estimate on
the loss, as ihe collection includes the
only litter of panthers in captivity
and several baby lions, but he says
it would be heavy.
At 8 o'clock last night the rivers
began to drop slightly, but not before
the Indianapolis Northern Traction
company 's $35,000 bridge over the
Wabash river had been swept away.
The homes of the twelve hundred
residents of"' sou Lit Peru are still un
der water, as well as many homes in
east and wst Peru and Elmwood, be
sides river for a distance of three
In some instances the flood-bound
people are living in the second stories
of their homes, but for the most part
hey have sought safety in the city
The C, C. & L. railroad was un
fble to move any trains yesterday.
The Wabash and Lake Erie railroads
ure having no trouble at this city, but
the Peru, Wabash & Logansport trac
tion line is tied up.Many cases of sick
ness have been reported since the
flood swept over the 'city, and it is
feared theri will be a great fatality
among the victims of measles, which
is now an epidemic in this city. There
has been no loss of life, but many
narrow eseines have been reported.
To Supervising Architect About Our
The following dispatch from Wash
ington shows the interest our con
gressman is taking in Richmond's
Congressman Watson had an inter
iew today with Assistant Secretary
of Treasury aylor about the plans
for the Federal building at Richmond,
which are altogether unsaticfactory
to the peop'e there. He made most
vigorous speech against the "dumpy
brick building with a tin roof,"
which he sa?d in a tone of disgust it
is proposed to erect. Taylor suggest
ed that the Congressman and ihe
Richmond people restrain themselves
until the bids for the construction of
the building came in. He said he
hoped for a satisfactory solution.

About a week ago Mr. J. M. Kirk

miles south of the city, picked up a
chunk of something that had shining
spots in it, in his wheat field. The
substance was very heavy and Mr.

aside until today when he brought it
to town and weighed it. The sub
stance weighed four and a half
pounds, and on examination proved
to be copper ore. Mr. Kirkman

so, and if a vein is found, the genial

ANSWERS THE STATEMENT
PRINTED IN THE PALLADIUM
For the Thought in Feeger's Oration,
Says President KeUy.
Mr. Kanaley of Notre Dame, when
asked his opinion of the statement
from Earllt.im, in regard to the con
test said in part :
"If Mr. Feeger has a letter of mine
in his possession which might in any
way be construed to mean that the
contest might be transferred from
Notre Dame to Richmond, the proper
place for him to have produced that
letter was at the meeting in Indi
anapolis before the state board.
"Mr. Kennedy had the letter in his
possession at that meeting and when
Notre Dame's representatives asked
that the letter be shown to the dele
gates, he refused to read it. If there
was anything in my letter that would
compromise Notre Dame, I asked
that it be .submitted to the convention
then and there. Nothing was forth
coming and the insinuation of Earl
ham was seen to be groundless.
"I have written four letters to Mr.
Feeger and sent him the official oaper
in all of which it was clearly stated
that the contest would not be held at
Earlham. Now that the faculty can
assume the position it does seems to
me to be the result of the decision of
i, A 1 3 3 ,-1 IV. 11. e
lue siaie yumu, auu ziul me itr&uu ui
a careful review of the facts of the
case. The circular letter I sent out. I
beg leave to ask the faculty of Earl
ham to examine. It will be seen that
there is.no undermining and that the
letters were fair and conciliatory.
w ."It is another strange fact that ihe
faculty of Earlham now attempts to
defend Mr. Feeger after President
Kelly informed us three weeks ago
that Earlham College could not hold
itself responsible for the thought ex
pressed in the oration. For the re
maining. at!a"cks of the article of the
faculty of Earlham I will pass them
by, as they re purely personal.
"In "conclusion I may state that
Notre Dame was guided in the whole
affair by idoals of justice and fair
ness, and appealed to the state board
only on these grounds.
"Notre Dame as well as every oth
er college in the association, was ex
tremely sorry that the situation arose
nut we believe that, inasmuch as it
did come, the state board was actuat
ed by ideals of fairmindedness, jus
tice and courtesj'.
"I believe that Earlham Is not act
ing graciously toward the state board,
which gav-3 its unanimous decision.
Notre Dame would certainly have ac
cepted the decision of the board un
der such circumstances."
