A. convention: A sensation was sprung in conven tion Saturday morning and an at tempt was made by the minority to introduce a resolution of sympathy for Louis T. Le "Beaume, the deposed national secretary and treasurer, who was suspended until his accounts were ooked into. The minority, meaning Indianapolis, Lafayette, Fort Wayne, Richmond and others, tried to incor porate the resolution of sympathy for LaBeaum-, but the majority ruled. Evansville, which has the largest post in the state, started the investiga tion of La Beaume 's case, and it is said that one of the members wishes to become national secretary-treasurer. At other meetings o the T. P. A. resolutions" of "sympathy have-been passed, but it was throttled here.

RUSSIAN BATTERIES Silenced by Japanese Ships Which Ascended the Yalu Losses Great. REPORTED ABOUT THE. CITY THAT HE IS WITH A MRS. SCOTT WIFE RECEIVES LETTER. On Saturday Postmarked . Kansas City Story of the Case A Deplorable Situation. There was a story afloat Saturday and Sunday about the city connecting a Richmond man and woman in a scandal and as it has become public property it is the desire of the Palla dium to publish it as a matter of news, and to give the facts in the case as best they can be got at. Edward Muhl, for several years has been employed at the Lichtcnfels butcher shop on Ft. Wayne Ave., a id is a brothtr-in-law of Mr. Lichten fels. Last Tuesday Mr. Muhl left for Indianapolis ostensibly to r.ttend the Republican convention, and he has not been seen in these parts since. The story is that Mr. Muhl went away to meet a woman Mho is not his wife, but who up to two weeks ago lived at 225 north sixth street. Her husband, Walter E. Scott, is the chief train dispatcher of the C. C. & L., and does not live with his wife, we are reliably informed. She has been gone trom the city for two weeks. A Palladium representative was told that Mr. Liehtenfels and Mr. Muhl had trouble and that was why the latter left home. So a represen tative of ibis paper went to see Mr. Lichtenfels in order that the truth might be known. When asked wheth er or not he had trouble -vith Mr. Muhl, Mr. lichtenfels replied: 'No, I had"ncr trouble with him,- only that 1 told him he coidd not at tend to Mrs. Scott and to business too. We had been told of his rela tions with Mrs. Scott and we laid for him and caught him there, and that settled the whole matter. Then wr told him he would have to quit that kind of business. Last Tuesday ho asked to go to the convention at In dianapolis. We let him go, and he has not sin.ee bfen seen. His Avife had a letter from him Saturday, post marked Kansas City. He told her not to write until she heard from him again, when he would send for her and the children. That is all I know about it," said Mr. Lichtenfels, "and the interest I took in the matter was for the sake of my sister and her children." Mr. Muhl's action has surprised his many friends here. He was a very prominent Red Man. and was at one time a candidate for county clerk. The whole affair is deplored and it is hoped by all the friends of Mr. Muhl that he will see the folly of his way ar-d return to his family or bring them to him. The Question of Morality Only a Bluff. H. R. Marlatt is the Democratic candidate for mayor running on the question of morality. The man who is his op v.-ner.t, Dr. W. W. Zimmer man, is Mr. Marlatt 's family physi cian. Would the Democratic candi date have an immoral roan for his physician. Prof. Harlow Lindley went to In dianapolis yesterday in the interests of the Earlham library, with the in tention of securing books for the; his tory i department (By Associated Press.)

The Asso ciated Press is informed at 2:30 this afternoon that nothing has been re ceived since Gen. Sassulitch's report of the retreat from Kulien Cheng U Antung. It is quite possible that the losses may reach the figures given by Japanese. The struggle is desperate at some joints. Washington, May 2. The Japan ese legation has advices to the effect that,' their loss in the recent engage ment will not exceed 700. MARKET May July May July Quotations From O. O.
