SOUTH BEND, INDIANA, TUESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1914. PRICE TWO CENTS BENE NEWS- IMES, C "STAR CHAMBER" FOR SOLONS AND BOARD OF WORKS FOR "OPEN DOOR" E WHEN BOARD OP WORKS CONVENES Reporters Urged to Take Seat and Hear Discussions Con cerning Public's Business New Precedent for Adminis tration. SOUTH SHORE PAVING IS OF WRONG QUALITY Open Way for Harmon Coal People to Build Sheds and Resume Business in South Bend. Krght there in the open, just as though tho public, gaze were nothing to fear, public knowledge of ollicial doings a right rather than a privilege, and even representatives of the pres.s being invited to sit and listen without restrictions not to print, Mayor Kel ler's board of public works established a new precedent in publicity for the present administration at its; morning session Tuesday. It all came without anticipation, yc reporter approaching the session room unannounced and without realizing" i hat anything was going on inside until he had entered. Then observing the board about the table, memory i ailed the. anathemas so recently hurled at "mere reporters for butting in", and he was about to run. when Member like stayed the retreat by motioning out a chair. The board was discussing collection irom the S-outh Shore Traction Co., of the cost of paving between their tracks n Main St.. recently relaid, and incidentally, the fact that the same kind of pavement had not been relaid as was torn up; this, according to Cbrk I'erhy. contrary to the or ders of the old board. Under the franchise of the South Shore, as explained by City. Atty. Seebirt, the city can require the com pany to bear the expense of such pave ment between and out to 14 inches be yond their tracks, but the pavement laid not having been approved, and1 not being of the asphalt quality re quired by the board, definite action was not taken. The South Shore might yet be required to take up the brick pavement and replace it with asphalt, when the weather again permits-. HuIn .Fur or the Coal Dealers. The board may also have rubbed the fur of local retail coal dealers a bit to the rough Tuesday by confirming an assessment roll for the vacation of an alley i Kaufman's addition that will enable the Harmon Coal Co. of Chicago, to build coal sheds at iti? anls and resume activity here. The coming of the Harmon people to South Bend was heralded with con siderable, noise a little over a year ago. and was answered by loud pro tests from coal dealers already here. The newcomers secured yards and opened an ollice, but were unable to build sheds that would enable them to use a Iike Shore aiding because the Lake Shore didn't want the sheds and would not concede an avenue of ap r roach. Use of Kaufman alley, according to Atty. A. P. Martin, representing tho Harmon people, was the only alterna tive, but the matter lias been held up now for a year, the coal retailers in sisting, though the money. $8 0, has long been on deposit to pay for the ground. It is a strip 14 by '.o feet, and the Harmon company enabled to build sheds where it can fill them direct from the ears, without rehandling. will be doing business in South Pend ngaiu before long. W'Hl Supcrice Pole. Upoi advise from Thomas H. lean ing, superintendent of police and lire a I irms. that the Indiana A: Michigan Ulectric o. is erecting some poles in the city without requisition, he was directed by .he board to see to it that no more "poh-s are erected until a permit is had from the board. The purpose is to keep them off the street as much n' po.-sible. and especially m positions tli.it do not interfere with the police and tire alarm wires. In the instance mentioned a requi sition hail been issued subject to i. railing's approval, which he did not approve, and. following his .suggestion as to a change oi location, me com- p.tny was Kointf r.n without having the i rijulsition r iH v-(l. tho violation ho- nottier mailer v. na n me eo.uui in;1ttT Wiliill trie poaru i took up. and which is to be looked into is the number of city employes that have telephones in th ir homes at th expense of the city. The franchises of both telephone eompanles provide lor a certain num ber of telephones f.-r municipal use, at the city hall, and department of licev. ami the Pell franchise further provbb s that the common council may shower tebplionees upon all city m lib s. or ;ts many as it likes at a re duced rate of 'j per cent, the city to pay th- hills-. No telephonees for r iiUT;cs at the expense (,f the city, seemed to be the attitude of the board. Unless the com mon council icoes over its head.

PUBLIC WELGOM PRES. LANG STILL BEGS SECRECY FOR CITY LAW MAKERS Talks Turkey to Reporters and Public at Council Session County Commissioners Want Action on Bridge Question. That the people and the press, upon which the public must so large ly depend for information regarding the actions and doings of public ser vants, have a champion for publicity in South Bend's municipal legislature, in its vice president, Jero T. Hagerty; and, that those same people and the press have an equally determined op ponent, so far as publicity is con cerned, in its president, Herman F. Lang, was again openly demonstrated at the regular session of that body Monday night. Stung by the criticism heaped up on the council and himself for the ac tion of last Tuesday night In excluding public and press from the meetings of tho committee of tho "hole", the presiding ottlcer came forward, with another defense of that action. Pang could find excuses for discard ing partisanship in municipal govern ment, and congratlated South Bend on such an alleged forward step, but he failed to exhibit any of the initia tive one might expect from and ad ministration so pledged to discard all partisan methods secrecy in commit tee deliberations, included. He could even see why a partisan administration might be justified in hearkening to the voice of the press, but a citizen's non-partisan adminis tration, he remarked in almost as many words, need be responsible to no one, save its constituents, condoning himself meanwhile by advocating a program that would shut that constit uency off from knowing anything to hold the administration responsible for.

GLEANERS PUUI TO EXTEND SPHERE Extension of Co-operative Buy ing and Selling Urged By.. not m the courts. nuit PI. UIIUI UlUdNUI UMIMIUI, JUil Re-elected. Plars for the extension of the. ac tivities of the Ancient Order of Glean ers which now boasts a membership I of 80,000 in live states, will be ac- tivelv pressed during the year accord ing to II: l: Zimmer of Center town ship, who was re-elected head of the order at the recent convention in To ledo. A delegation of 2 5 Gleaners from this county returned from the con vention with several of tneir number named n important committees of the order. Krnest L.ogan of Lako ville was named chairman of the com mittee on credentials; George Mllli kin of South Itend is on the commit tee on law, anil Petr Oberly. Sump tion Prairie, is a member of the grievance committee. Membership rates were slightly in creased at the convention in order to facilitate the extension work and to add to the insurance feature of the organization. The increase will bring the insurance division under the Mobile act. Chief Gleaner Zimmer said Tues day he expected great strides to be made by the order during the year in the direction of its avowed object co-operation among the farmers tend ing toward the elimination' of the competitive system among agricul tural producers. Federation, not ex termination, is the object of the as sociation, according to Zimmer. Co-operative buying has already been practiced by the Gleaners in this section, notably in the case of coal which was bought by carloads and distributed to members at a con- aot rii!n mmiu. v .-(.ri ;un mam elevator?, creameries and milk de- pots are also maintained in some sec tions. Former Mayor Lew Shank's "trust busting" potato campaign In Indianapolis was conducted through the Gleaners. Zimmer said, and is an example of what the order can ac complish. All the arbors in St. Joseph county will meet in joint session Saturday, Feb. 7. at the Woodmen's hall. PULL IN' CHINA SHOP. Special Cable. LONDON. Jan. 1.1. At the cattle market in Lewes Tuesday a Mg bullock strayed into a china shop and sauntered through lines of china, g.ass and earthware the length of the whede block. The drover and the salesman finally induced the bullock to depart from the shop and the big animal walked calm ly into the street. Not a piece of china was brok YOUTH TO PLEAD GUILTY TO THEFT ROM i Hawkir. Did Not Attempt Sui cide But Snuffed Chloroform Got Habit in Hospital. Bay Iiawkins, the youth charged with embezzling $11.40 of the It. M. Ball Furniture Co., will probably be arraigned efore Judge Funk in the circuit court Wednesday. Hawkins, according- to authorities, has indicated his wil'u.igness to plead guilty. What was believed to have been an attempt by Hawkins to commit sui cide after his arrest in Michigan City a few days ago, has revealed that the youth haa become a persistent user of chloroform. According to his state ment to Deputy Prosecutor Samuel Schwartz, Hawkins inhales the fumes of this liquid In much the same man ner as cocaine users snuff "llake." Hawkins told the deputy prosecutor that he became addi tod to the use of the drug following sojourn in a hospital where he was taken after sustaining injuries in an accident. The bos's hand was crushed while he was working in a mattress factory here and in treating the injured hand ph -sicians used the chloroform. Hawkins left South Bend for Mich igan City after making the collections for the furniture company, which he is charged to have kept. In Michi gan City he purchased some chloro form, telling the druggist he wanted to clean his clothes. Shortly afterwards he fell suddenly to the iloor in a Michigan City sa loon. After he was revived Hawkins declared he had bought the chloro form for a toothache. When shortly afterwards he was taken in charge by otHcers it was sup posed he had attempted suicide. The real story, however, was learned by Schwartz, who examined Hawkins aft er his arrest. The youth said he pours a litle of the liquid on his handkerchief and inhales the fumes. His mouth and lips are badly burn ed, evidently from the use of the drug. FOB PETERS' SCALP Control of Public Market May Pass to Retailers if Peters Can Be Removed. Any attempt of the Keller admin istration to keep its campaign agree ment with the grocers and butchers that they will be permitted to dictate the appointment of a sealer of weights and measures to succeed John W. Peters, bids fair to meet with stubborn resistence from Indianap- JL 1J (luue auuioranveiy unuer- stood that there was a gentlemen's agreement with the Keller campaign managers that in case the citizens party should win, a sealer satisfactoiy to the grocers and butdiers would be appointed. It is understood that they have two candidates, Frank Hanauer and John Brodbeck, the latter being the favorite, and that an appointment may be handed down by the board of safety at most any time. Now it develops that a staler cf weights and measures cannot be named, or rather. Sealer Peters re moved, without the consent of the. state commissioner of weights and measures under whose directions, in that capacity, he acts. The removal must be for cause, and the incumbent holds his job pending an appeal to the courts. Should Sealer Peters show a disposition not to retire there is a possibility of a bad mixup in case the administration insists upon an ap pointment. Put Market Out. The interests of the grocers and outcners in tins ornce is asserted to depend not only uj i his being an inspector of weights and measures, but under the local rangements, he also has charge of the city market, regarded by the retail trade as some thing of a dangerous competitor. To control this otllce is reputed to be the sinister plan by which these retailers would virtually put the market out of business. It is also reported that the grocers and butchers have grown .a bit un easy that the appointment has not already been made and it is possible that the matter will come up at the meeting of the board of safety Friday morning.
