DAILY ESTABLISHED 1875. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 1904. ONE CENT A COPY. Hie EB FOR it ' SPECIAL UNION STATION RESTAURANT FORCE RECEIVED TELE GRAM THAT 30 PEOPLE WOULD COME ON SPECIAL And Stop Off For Lunch Telegram a Fake and Waiters Were Mad But it Was April Fool. Yesterday being April fool, the reg ulation number of practical jokes were, of course, played over the city, but one o the best that has been re ported yet was that played on the Union station restaurant force. About half past I a telegram was brought into the restaurant, dated Indianapo lis, saying that thirty people, on a special train, would stop off for lunch at Richmond at 4 :55. There was great bustle and prepara tion in the restaurant immediately. Tlie counter was almost entirely cleared, a long row of plates was set out, the kitchen sent up a big supply of cooked food, and everything was put where it would be handy in time of the "rush." These preparations over, the force rested; 4:55 came and no special; 5:15 came and yet no special. It soon began to dawn on the minds of the waiters that the day was the first of April, and, when an official came in and was shown the telegram, he pronounced the affair a joke, and it was well for the loungers that they "had business outside." The only thing to do was to clear off the counter and the waiters had to make the best of it, but allusions to "specials" are not received favorably there today.

RICHMOND MEN SAVED "FLYER" GLENN BASS AND LEW AN DREWS FOUND A WASHOUT AT LEWISBURG, OHIO. STOPPED THE TRAIN Passengers Grateful For Their Rescue The Train Would Have Been Demolished. One of the bravest deeds heard of for some time happened a few days ago, when Glenn Bass and Lewis An drews, both young colored men of this city, saved the Cincinnati and Northern "Flyer" from what would have undoubtedly resulted in a most disastrous wreck, in which the lives of at least fifty people would have been jeopardized, and in which at least ten or more persons would have met instant death, not to speak of in juries which all on board of the train at the time would have received. Bass and Andrews are strolling musicians, Bass being a violinist and Andrews a 'cellist, and they play throughout this part of the country at dances. A few days ago they played at Lewis burg, Ohio, and the next morning, be ing entirely "broke," they started to "count the ties" to West Alexandria, their next scheduled point. When about two miles south of Lewisbnrg they found that a portion of the track about twenty feet long had been en tirely washed away by the high waters, leaving a wide gap over a gulch. They saw what the fate of any train which would come along at that place at full speed would be, and, while Bass remained at one side of the washout, Andrews went to the other side, ready to flag any train which might approach. Soon the Cin cinnati " Flyer," as number 3 is com monly known, approached from the north and the engineer, on seeing Bass waiving his arms, stopped the train. As might be expected, the passeng ers and crew were very grateful to their rescuers., and the latter were taken on board and carried to their destination. They were made much of by all on board the train, as all thought that but for the fortunate rescue the train would have been com pletely demolished in the gulch. The deed of the two was reported to the officials of the company and yesterday Bass and Andrews received letters from the president, saying that the company would give each an "an nual" for the brave rescue. The men are well known as traveling musicians throughout this part of the state, and the story of their deed is being talked of by all. DR. SARAH STOCKTON NAMED. Governor Durbin yesterday ap pointed Dr. Sarah Stockton, of this city, a member of the state board of charities and correction, succeeding Mary A. Spink, whose term recently expired. Indianapolis Journal. JUDGE FOX OVERRULES H OH FOR A NEW TRIAL IN THE OTTO S. BERTRAM INCEST CASE. SENTENCED TO PEN From Two to Five Years Sixty Days Granted in Which to File Exceptions. Judge Fox, who has been holding court at Portland all week, arrived home this morning too late to hold court, but announced that he would be on the bench at 1:30 this after noon. The Bertram case was called. Henry TJ. Johnson moved that witness fees and mileage for unused witnesses not be taxed against the defense. Mr. Johnson then made a , motion for a new trial on the grounds that the jury was improperly charged, and that charges that should have been given were omitted; that certain por tions of Eliza Alice Hill's testimony should have been admitted as evi dence that was stricken out. Mr. Johnson made remarks as to the law in the ease. He was followed by At torney T. J. Study, in an argument in defense of their action. Judge Fox gave an explanation of his charges and overruled the motion for a new trial. Mr. Stu(?y then asked the court for sixty days" time in which to compile the evidence and the" court's instruc tions to the jury with reference to an appeal. This was granted. Judge Fox then asked Otto S. Ber tram if he had anything to say why sentence should not be passed upon him. ; Bertram replied : . "Nothing, only I'm innocent of this eharge and all others she put against me." Judge Fox then told Bertram that it became his duty to pass sentence upon him. He said there were cases in which he felt restrained in passing sentence where the party was not ably defended. But this was not the ease here. You have had good coun sel and I think a fair and impartial trial, and I sentence you to the North ern Indiana prison from two to five years. When the judge passed sentence upon Bertram his wife, who was by his side, became visibly affected and cried. Bertram seemed unmoved. He will be taken to the prison in a few days. ivilliHartis TO THE PENITENTIARY FROM ONE TO THREE YEARS BY JUDGE FOX.

TRAINS RUNNING ONLY FROM RIDGEVILLE TO CINCINNATI. PORTLAND AND Indianapolis Stations Are Flooded C, C. & L. is Running No Trains. The recent heavy rains and conse quent washouts have put all railroad schedules "to the bad." The Penn sylvania is suffering most severely in the west and north, the Indianapolis trains yesterday all being over an hour late on account of the water in the Union station. No.-18, yesterday morning from Indianapolis, was seven hours late. No. 14 was three hours late and No. 20 was an hour late yes terday afternoon. No. last even ing from Chicago, was forty min utes late on account of small wash outs along the road. ' The G. R. & I. is having probably the greatest trouble of any of the roads running into Richmond. Port land is almost entirely under water and the only means of conveyance is by boat. The train which leaves here at 12:50 a. m. only went as far as Ridgeville yesterday afternoon and then back to Cincinnati today. The water all along the road is very high and is doing much damage. The C.j .0: & L. is completely over come by rhe floods along the northern part of thj route, at Marion and oth er places, and was running no trains yesterday. Up to noon today no trains had come from the north and it is doubtful whether the C, C. & L will have any service. The regalar schedule time will be made by no roads for several days. S. C.
