IMMENSE THRONG
HEAR REV. KUHN
AT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
LAST NIGHT
THE SALOONS AND SOCIETY
Handled . Without Gloves by the
i Pastor Report of the Ser- '

toon.
w Last 1 evening at the Christian
Church the Rev. T. H. Kuhn address
ed an audience ' which tested the ca-
f "If Christ Should Come "to Rich-
r iiionu. .
w - m .
The Rev. Kuhn is practically a
new comer in the ministerial field of
Richmond and from his sermon last
evening it can be deduced that in a
number of subjects he is farther ad
vanced than a number of his pre
decessors. He is a large man, both
mentally and physically and has a
large amount of personal magnet
ism. His command of language is
very fine and does not use a note in
delivering his address. A number of
times last evening he spoke at the
rate of from 150 to 200 words a
minute and his vocabulary seemed to
be unlimited.
In his address last evening, Mr.
Kuhn attempted to show the shal
lowness of the so-called social life
of Richmond and a number of times
his theme bordered very closely on
socialistic forms.
. Mr. Kuhn, while he is sincere in
all of his actions, is a thorough bus
iness man as was shown by a num-Izfbt-
htstoeriswssteinir;'
Last evening's services Were open
ed by the church choir which fur
nished music of the mediocre nature.
: The church is deserving of a much
larger choir and a better organ than
it has at the present time. The les
son which was read by Mr. Kuhn,
was from the fifth chapter of the
Gospel of Matthew. In part Mr.
Kuhn 's address was:
"This meeting should interest ev
ery person who claims to be a citizen
of the beautiful city of Richmond.
The meeting is intended to interest
them. The apostles that were with
Christ when he left this earth be
lieved that at some time he should
return and on nearly every page of
the new testament a statement is
made that would lead us to believe
the same. Suppose that tomorrow a
bright light would appear in the
1 -"heavens and following that light
Christ should appear to all of us.

SPECIAL SERVICES
In Connection With World's Tem
perance Sunday at First M. E.
Last Sunday morning at the First
M. E. Sunday school special services
were held in connection with World's
Temperance Sunday. After the les
son study short addresses' "were made
'by Professor Ellebarger, Dr. Swad
ener and others. The organization
of the Lincoln Legion as a gospel
temeprance department of the Anti
vSaloon League and the function it
'by the superintendent. He then pre
sented the original pledge of total
stenance written by Abraham Lm-
In in 1S40, and over one hundred
present signed the pledge and were
presented with a small button bear
ing the words "Lincoln Legion," be
neath which was a picture of Lincoln
himself.
)$ In the evening Dr. Swadener de
livered an excellent address under
the auspices of the Epworth League.
Zlis subject was " The Voices of the
greets of Our Cities." Dr. Swad
er has had a wide experience in
ilum work, and he therefore, can
?ak with authority. This together
-la his own interesting way of tell
7 things, always makes his address
: valuable as well as pleasing to
, i .largo audiences. c
Won't Help Building Board.
New York, Nov. 28. The new
building organization to take the
place of the Building Trades Alli
ance will not be under the wing of
the Central Federation Union. The
new body, which consists of thirty
of the leading unions connected with
the building trade will meet here to
night to adopt a constitution. A pe
culiar feature of the body is that it
contains unions that are fighting the
arbitration agreement of the build
ing Employers' Association and un
ions which are working under that
agreement. ,

from a heavy cold which he contract

Mr. Wiggins had been in poor health
for some time and a week ago he be
came lost and wandered to the river
bottoms, where he remained nearly
twelve , hours. The exposure was
more than he could stand and he has
been in bed ever since. At the first
of the week it was thought on ac
count of his strong constitution he
would recover, but toward the last
of the week he grew weaker and
while his death was expected his
friends did not think he would die
so soon. He is survived by his wife,
Ruth S., two brothers, Andress S.

POTATO CROP
Killed by Rain Peasants of Conne-
mara, Ireland, in Dire Straits.
Dublin, November 26. Famine is
brewing throughout a large oart of
Connemara, where the potato crop,
the staple winter food of the people,
has been destroyed by continuous
rains, y'
y The peasants of this, the poorest
part of Ireland, have obtained no
benefit from the new land act, as
their , position could , be ameliorated
only by enlargement of their miser
able holdings, toward which the aet
achieves nothing practical.
The rents paid by these unhappy
people are not earned out of the
land, but by the men going to Eng
land and Scotland for harvesting op
erations leach year. The distress is
Already: widespread. :
OF THE WESTERN ROLLER POLO LEAGUE AND JOINS THE
--"
CENTRAL LEAGUE.
THE PACE SETTS
The Action Was Taken at a Meeting of Western League Officials Held
- at Anderson.
Indianapolis is not represented in
the Western Polo League any longer.
A meting of the officials of the West
ern League was held in Anderson
yesterday afternoon with a full rep
resentation of alPteams and Manager
Cohen of the Indianapolis team pre
sented his resignation from the lea
gue, which was accepted. The Co
hens claimed that at the present time
the team which they had stood no
show in the Western League and
they therefore wished to be released
from the league. At the same time
Mr. Cohen was also begging the offi
cials of the league to let him have
two other good players so that he
could manage in some manner to
stay in the league. It has long been
known that the pace in the Western
League was too fast for the Indians
and that they were rapidly dropping
behind, but it was not thought that
the team would disband so early in
the game.
Manager Henley, of the local team
stated last night that the players
which were held by Indianapolis
would revert to the league itself and
that the five teams in the league
would each carry seven men, but as
will be noticed in the last part of
this article ' there eems to. b-a dia-4
pute on this subject. The dropping
of Indianapolis from the league will (
necessitate the complete changing ofj
the schedule. This will be done after
this week and an entire new schedule
will be made out. This week the
only changes will be that Anderson
will play at Elwood on December 1
and Elwood at Anderson on Decem
ber 2. Indianapolis was to have
played at Anderson on the second
and at Elwood on ' the first, Messrs.
Henley and Jessup, of the Rich
mond team, stated last evening that
no new team would come into, the
league this season and the league
would play but five teams. Those
present at the meeting yesterday at
Anderson were the Cohens, from the
Indianapolis team; Petty, of Mun-
cie; Durbin and Sebern, of Elwood; '
Fisher and Norton, of Anderson,
Page, of Marion, and Henley and
Jessup, of Richmond. No ether busi
ness of importance was transacted.
Joins Central League.
A special dispatch to tha Palladi
um from Indianapolis, staled that
Indianapolis had asked for a fran
chise in the Central Polo League
and that it ;had been granted and
K. OF C.
Have Initiation at Shelbyville Yes
terday. Twenty members of the Richmond
Council, Knights of Columbus, left
at 3:30 Sunday morning on a special
for Shelbyville, where a dass was in
itiated. The Richmond delegation
returned at 11 p. m. and reported a
large attendance and a good social
time. The first degree was put on
by Shelbyville, the second by Ander
son and the third by E. P. Clancy
and staff of .Indianapolis.
COLORED MAN
Arrested by Officer Bundy for Car-
rying Concealed Weapons.
Charles Parks, colored, was arrest
ed by Patrolman Bundy last even
ing for carrying -concealed weapons.
Parks had ann gly looking revolver
on him when he was arrested. It is
not thought that Parks intended to
shoot any one, but -he is probably
safer behind the bars where be, will
have no chance, to use tjhe gun, : c

TOO FAST FOR THEM
m
that Indianapolis would .play its-first
game with Danville at Indianapolis
o the night of Tuesday, November
29. The dispatch stated thai the
same team which played in the West
ern League would represent Indiana
polis in the Central Leasrue. From
Uhe statements of Mr. Henley last
evening in regard to the disposition
of the Indianapolis players it is not
understood how this can be done.
At the meeting of the Western Lea
gue officials yesterday it was stated
that the players on the Indianapolis
team belonged to the Western Lea
gue and would be distributed among
the five Western League manage
ments, where they would do the most
good. In direct contradiction to this
comes the statement from the Indi
anapolis polo people that the players
were all released to the Central Lea
gue officials, who in turn released
them to Indianapolis. This move
will complicate matters a great deal
and there probably will be much
contention over the matter. The
Central League proposes to have
seven teams -in the league for the
rest of the season. The Indianapolis
team is eighteen games behind in the
Central League and will start out in
the percentage column with no
games pl&pad "and none won. The
new team will play at Indianapolis
on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
nights until it catches up with the
rest of the teams. Farther than the
game with Danville on Tuesday night
no other games had been arranged
last evening. It is not known how
the Central League officials will ar
range their schedule,'-but there prob
ably will be a meeting of the officials
at the Imperial Hotel in Indianapo
lis, today to try and straighten mat
ters out. To a man up a tree it
would seem much easier to straighten
out matters in both league by chang
ing one of the fast Central League
teams, either Ft. Wayne or Lafay
ette, to the Western League. Both
of these teams are surely of Western
League calibre and neither town is
far from the beaten paths of the
Western League. At the present
time the actions of yesterday have
caused a complete muddle in both
leagues and it will likely be some
time before matters are entirely
straightened. A number of local
nolo fans who heard of the change
bst evening were much surprised
and one of them could hardly get the
new system straightened out.
OIL SHOOT
Proved to Be a Gas Shoot at Ha-
gcrstown.
The Cambridge City Oil Company,
in which a number of local men are
interested shot a new oil well, the
"Mound," Saturday afternoon, but
instead of finding any oil, found a
large quantity of gas. The "Mound"
well is near the well " Friday,"
which has been doing such good
work. The well was immediately
capped after the shooting to stop
the flow of gas.

TWO CONVICTS
SCALE WALLS
RAY HARRIS TELLS OF DARING
ESCAPE AT MICHIGAN CITY
MAKE LADDERS OF GAS PIPE
And Rope and Get Away They
Were Not Discovered for Half
an Hour.
Turnkey Rav Harris returned Sat-
urday from Michigan City, where he
had taken a convict to the peniten
tiary. He told the Palladium that
while he was there William Lyons
and Everett -" Van Auken, convict
electricians in the prison there es
caped early Saturday from the penal
institution by scaling the north wall
by means of a crude ladder, which
thev constructed out of short pieces
of gas pipe. A rope was used in
lowering the men to the ground.
Mr. Harris says Lyons has a prev
ious record. His criminal career had
its inception when he was yet in his
teens, he having been sentenced to
the reform school in Plainfield, later
serving two terms in the Chester
(111.) prison. He was convicted in
Shelby county and sent to JefTerson
ville in April, 1900, and was trnas
ferred there in July the following
year.
Van Auken was serving his first
term. His wife has been in the city
since his incarceration, and has visit
ed her husband as often as permis
sible. Both men were doing time for
burglary.
They were engaged s?t putting up
lights in one of the factories and
were under the care of an officer.
The guard stepped out of the shop
and the two men made their dainng
break for liberty. The escape
not discovered until they had been
gone for half an hour.
AFTER A PLUM
Senator Cockrell is a Visitor at the
Capitol.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 28. Sen
ator Francis M. Cockrell arrived
here today from Dayton, Ohio, where
he stopped on his way to the Capital
to visit his daughter. It is under
stood that he will call upon Presi
dent Roosevelt at earliest possible
moment to discuss the offer recently
made by the President of either a
place on the Panama Canal Commis
sion or the Inter State Commerce
Commission. It is said that the only
regret the President entertained of
the Republican victory in Missouri
was that it killed Senator Cockrell 's
chances of being returned to the
Senate after next March. Mr. Rose
velt is therefore desirous of reward
ing the retiring senator with a nice
comfortable birth.
Miss Louise Woerner, of Eaton,
Ohio, was in the city yesterday and
took dinner at the Westeott.

liam J. 'Bryan was in Kansas -City
today. ' Mr. Bryan arrived at 10
o'clock and met W. t. Wetmore oi
St. Louis by, appointment to arrange
for a Hunt of big game in the Ozarks.
Mr." Bryan denied that his meeting
with Mr. Wetmore' was to talk poli
tics or to arrange for a conference
of Democrats. I
"The story that I sent out letters
to the Democrats of the South is un
true," he said. "I sent out no let
ters and tried to have no conference.
My plans do not include a confer
ence of any sort, at least not in the
immediate future." ;
Asked if there was anything in the
talk of forming a new party Mr.
Bryan said:
"That story is preposterous. It
would take years to build up an or
ganization like the Democratic party
Such an idea has not presented itself
to me. The party of today is good
enough for me and I shall continue
to strive to make it the party of
a majority of the people."
