MILES OF EVIL DENS
Offering Allurements to Innocent
Girls Effort to Protect
It has come to the knowledge of the
W. C. T. U. that keepers of infamous
houses in St. Louis have a capital of
$300,000 to secure new victims for
their nefarious business. A corres
pondent of the Christian Herald says:
"There are miles and miles of evil
dens that cover their dark deeds with
a sign "Restaurant," or "Girls
Wanted to Work." Many an innocent
girl has entered these apparently re
spectable places, only to be drugged
and dragged to a living death. A
school teacher was rescued recently
by an uncle who found her in enforc

Commencement, the Most Successful
The commencement of Clay town
ship schools was held at Greensfork
last Friday night under the direction
of Mr. B. II. Linderman, township
trustee. There were two graduates
from the high school and eleven from
the common schools. The occasion
was one of the most enjoyable, the
M. E. church being filled to the doors.
President R. L. Kelly of Earlham
made the class address. His address
lay along the lines of growth into the
intellectual life giving Lincoln, Glad
stone and Bismarck as beacon lights.
Supt. C. W. Jordan in delivering the
diplomas took occasion to give the
class much wise counsel. The music
for the occasion was supplied by the
Earlham Quartette and their efforts
were thoroughly appreciated. Mr.
Linderman, the trustee, is being con
gratulated on all sides this morning
for his successful management of
this commencement which is thought
to be the most pleasant and profita
ble one ever held in the township.

HON. WILLIAM D. FOULKE TO
VISIT OLD COUNTRY.
His Views on Civil Service and His
Estimate of President
Hon. William D. Foulke, who is in
the city preparatory to leaving for
Europe, is looking the picture of
iVfi TL- Isn wiring a button,
"I am for Richmond.' '
"How is civil service getting on?"
a Palladium reporter asked of Mr.
" Civil service is getting on fine,"
said Mr. Foulke, "in fact it is better
cared for by far and lived up to by
President Roosevelt than by any of
his predecssors. He is a prince of
good fellows and treats everybody
alike. If any man in office goes
wrong the President is after him hot
footed, and does not stop to think
what party he belongs to. If he is
found guilty he is punished and
that's all there is to it."
"How do you like the President a?
a citizen," we ventured to remark?
"He is certainly a splendid citizen
and a great leader among his friends"
said Mr. Foulke. "He is of power
ful build and very athletic. Just to
show you how strong he is I will re
late a little incident. Some time ago
a party were out horse-back riding,
and one of the ladies in the party
met with a mishap and fell down a
cliff. At this juncture the President
came along and seeing the lady was
at a loss to know how to get on her
horse, picked her up, dead weight,
and placed her safely on the animal's
back. This feat required great
The State Convention at Lafayette

News came from the Richmond
post last week that its delegation
would join the Indianapolis delega

American Odd Fellowship will have
a birthday tomorrow and the members
of the great fraternity all over the

We appreciate his long and useful

counsel and earnest service for the

out of jail through a two-foot wall
with a tool made from part of the

and the reason that only three escap -

SPLENDID PARADE OF THE VIS
BITING AND LOCAL
About Fifty Delegates Present Ser-
vices Yesterday at Church
Meeting Last Night.
The eleventh annual convention of
the St. Joseph's Staatsverband of
Indiana 'began in this city yesterday
and will continue through today. The
organization was founded at Ft.
Wayne in 1893 for the purpose of
banding together the German Catho
lic societies of the state. The pres
ent officers are:
President August Gleitze, Logans
port. Vice President J. F. Miller, Vin
cennes. Second Vice President Joseph

IN THE MATTER 0F INCREAS-
ING THE CAPITAL STOCK
Show the Effects of the P., C, C. &
St. L. Business, Which is
Outgowing the Road.
A financier, in speaking of Presi
dent Cassatt's administration of the
Pennsylvania and the attacks which
have been made on the property by
hostile interests, says the bear raids
on Pennsylvania have about spent
their force, and the public is begin
ning to realize how unjustly to the
management the criticisms of its
policy in increasing its capital stock
have been. The Pennsylvania shows,
in spite of the adverse conditions of
the late winter, earnings of 9 1-2 per
cent, on its entire Cjapital stock, new
and old, and in spite of the fact of its
new capital has not of itself been
bringing in a cent of revenue beyond
a merely nominal banking increment.
If the great railroad system has in a
given period declined, and under con
ditions of the most unfavorable char
acter been able to carry the burden
of an inactive capitalization of fully
one-fourth its entire capital stoek
there need be no uneasiness as to its
position. The truth is the business
of the railroad is growing so rapidly
that it is unable to handle it all. Its
history of fifty consecutive years of
cash dividends has shown the wisdom
and conservatism of this policy, and
the present showing is a sufficient
refutation of the claims of the bears
and a satisfactory, assurance to its
stockholders of the safety of this
policy as to the future. When the
contemplated improvements are car
ried out the road wrill undoubtedly
show earnings of fully 15 per cent,
of its entire capitalization.
WILL NOT CONFLICT
Dental Association Meeting and May
The opening of the Dental Associa
tion's meeting and that of the May
Musical festival occur on the same
night, Wednesday, May 4. Arrange
ments have been made with the den
tists having the matter in charge to
adjourn their meeting at 8:45 p. m.,
thus allowing the dentists to attend
the festival. They will hold their
banquet at 10 :30. So it will be seen
the two meetings will in no wise con
flict. RAINS IN KANSAS.

On His Way to Oratorical Contest at
Winchester, Ind., April 23. Last
night's primary high school oratori
cal contest was signalized by the kid
naping of a senior by several as yet
unknown persons. John Macey, son
of Judge Macey, as president of the
oratorical association, was on the pro
gram for an address of welcome. Ear
ly in the evening he was on his way to
church in company with Chauncey
Canaday, son of Silas Canaday, and
when near the church was waylaid by
five or six men in disguise. He was
taken;in charge by the party, hustled
into a closed carriage and driven out
of town to a lonesome place known as
the Kent Brown woods, because it
was there that Kent Brown, a color
ed barber, was murdered, and there
kept until alomst o'clock. During
the whole time the party had him in
charge they conversed in whispers
and kept their identity concealed.
Young Canada was bound and gagged
and aclose watch kept over him until
the party escaped with Macey, when
he was permitted to proceed to the
contest. Later in the night Macey
was returned to the outskirts of the
town and given his liberty, but too
late for him to attend the contest.
The contest was held at the Metho
dist church, for the purpose of select
ing representatives for a contest with
the . Unionj City High School to ' be
held at the Union YGrand Theatre in
that city on May 13. - v 'tLl
