Charged with Attempt to Commit Rape -Jury Whü Krenly Divided on First Ital- lot as to Prisoners tiullt or lunoeent Verdict a Surprise. The jury in the cate of the state vs. Wm. Campbell, charged with attempt ing to rape little Zelia Stein, arrived at an agreement at 11 a. m. yesterday. The case was given to them at 5:30 Wednesday evening and upon assembling in the jury room, the first ballot was taken, showing the jury to be evenly divided as to convictions rel ative to the guilt or innocence of the prisoner. Various ballots were taken thereafter and a compromise verdict was tinally rendered. The jury gave the prisoner a jail sentence of six months. When the verdict was rendered a( the court room yesterday, the prisoner broke down and cried, protesting against the penalty and declaring his innocence. Those who heard the evi dence think that the prisoner can con gratulate himself upon escaping a pen itentiary sentence. The fact that there is nothing on the statutes prescribing a penalty for the particular crime committed, is a very probable explanation of his escaping the penitentiary. No doubt the jury was convinced that the prisoner did not intend to commit rape though they might have been satisfied of his guilt, as told by the little Stein girl. The verdict is a surprise to the community, as all expected that he would be nent to the penitentiary for an indeterrainite period. Duty oT Democrats. Hon. John W. Kern, in his speech at Franklin Tuesday, spoke thus of the duty of democrats: "It is the duty of democrats in this hour to stand closely together. Let the past be forgotten. If Bryan can afford to welcome Olney and Cockran and Watterson back in the ranks, and if Olney and Cockran and Watterson are brave aod manly enough to return to their old-time places about the demo cratic fireside, surely we in Indiana, however much we may have differed in the past as to the matters of policy or upon mere economic questions, can afford to rail? about a common stand ard as we did in the good old days, and all together, shoulder ' to shoulder, march again to the same old music and again win the same sort of victories which crowned our efforts then. "But there must be kindness, gener osity and courtesy. It will not do for any man to undertake to belittle or humiliate the great standard bearer of 18 and 1900, William J. Bryan. He has so firm a hold on the affections of the millions of men who voted for him that any such treatment would be quickly and promptly resented. And none of the brave and patriotic men who have returned and who are return ing to their old places in the party wil want to Inflict such treatment. All of them recognizes the splendid abilities, the superb qualities, the great patriot ism of that man and in their devotion to the cause of democracy will be more than willing to be just to him and to the millions of his admirers and friends. We are not making platforms tonight, nor are we naming candidates. On all essential questions the old Democratic party is united. On all other questions let us for the sake of harmony aod vic tory exercise charity. "When the time comes for the pre sentation of the issues to the people the candidate will come with it. He will be chosen by the liberty-loving demo crats of America and will be a fit rep resentative of the great principles upon which we are all agreed. Funeral of Clias. Coyer.

THREE MEN ARE KILLED; SEVERAL BADLY INJURED. Howard P. Compton and Joseph Clifford Instantly Killed Chas. Coyer Died a Few Hours After Col lision Occurred Mede Logan, of Plymouth, Had Narrow Escape from Death Work Resumed. Great excitement prevailed in Plym outh last Friday shortly after 6 p. m. when word was brought that a horrible train wreck had occurred near the tower, two miles west of the city. The Pennsylvania local. No. 11, west bound, ran into a construction train, which was coming east. The construction train engine was pushing the caboose in front of it, and in this caboose were six workmen who were the victims of the awful disaster. This train was coming down the east side of the Donaldson hill at full speed when it met the local freight. The result of the wreck is here told: Killed. HOWARD P.COMPTON.conductor on the construction train, who made his home at Ft. Wayne, but whose parents live at Larwill, was killed instantly, both legs being cut oil and otherwise horribly mangled. He was 35 years of age and unmarried. His brother, An drew J. Compton, of Ft. Wayne, came Saturday and after Undertaker Bunnell had prepared the corpse for burial, took it Larwill, where intermtnt occurred at 2 p. ra. Sunday. JOSEPH CLIFFORD, a construction man, and a son of Contractor Clifford, was instantly killed. The bodv was brought to Undertaker Bunnell and prepared for burial. Contractor Clif ford came and took the body to Valpa raiso Saturday. The young man was 23 years of ago and had been mar ried about one year. He and Mrb Clif ford have resided at Bender's BoardiDg house during the summer. CHAS. COVER,con8truction man of Valparaiso, aged 23, had one lee cutoff. He was brought to the ollice of Borton and A6pinall, where he was at tended by Dr. Aspinall aod Dr. Preston. He died at 11 p. m. His body was dressed and sent to Valparaiso on the early morning train. In.j u red. F. WORDEN, a brakeman of Fort Wayne, received a crushed foot. His wounds were dressed by Dr. Aspinall and Dr. Preston and he was sent to his home in Ft. Wayne. He will recover. ME HE LOGAN, of this city, was in the caboose and was lying down at the time of the accident. This fact doubt less accounts for the fact that he is alive today. When the two trains came together he was pitched through the door and under the tender of the engine. While in this position the cold water poured out of the engine upon him. He was taken from the wreck and brought to his home on West Gsrro street. His neck was hurt some and his back wrenched. He perhaps suffered most fioru the effects of the cold water. The physicians say that it was very ditlicult to get him warmed up. He was unable to get out of bed Saturday morning. SCHUYLER GREGG, of Plymouth, received a fractured collar tone and his back was wrenched somewhat. He was brought to his home in West Plym outh. His injuries are not serious. Dr. Kaiser and Dr. Bönen went im mediately to the scene of the wreck and aided in giving relief to the injured. I'artieulars of Wreek. The local train waa in charge of Con ductor Lenfeety and Engineer Frank Simonson. Fireman Flickenger was also in the cab. How the enginemen of both engines escaped instant death is a miracle. The scene of the accident is forty-live car lengths west ot the O. M. tower, which is two miles west of Plymouth on the east side of what is known as the Donaldson hill. The Pennsylvania company have been making extensive improvements near the hill and Con tractor Clifford was in charore of the work. It was in connection with this worK that they were on the tracks at the time the wreck occurred. The local was running at full speed and, be sides having her engine derailed and pretty badly used up, she had eight cars derailed. The dead men were literally buried under the wrecked caboose aod it was some time before they were located. Some of the injured men were also pinned beneath the debris. The wrecking car was rushed to the scene as soon as possible and later a special train was made up and some of the company's officials and Drs. Stomen and McOscar, of Ft. Wayne, hastened to Plymouth on it. The wreck has not yet been thor oughly investigated by the company, and as yet no one has been blamed for the affair. It is known however, that the local had the right of way, and therefore the construction train should not have been on the tracks at the time. Trains run -at such a speed at that point that it was impossible for the local to stop in time to prevent a smaehup. The railroad men are not willing to place the blame until a through investigation Lad been made. Howard P. Compton, the dead con ductor had been in service for nearly sixteen years and for the past thri years was a regular conductor. Andrew Jasper Compton, a conduct or on the Pennsylvania road, a brother ot Howard P.Comp.toD, who was killed in the wreck, arrived on the '.:22 a. m. passenger and took the body to Larwell, near where their parents reside on a farm. About a dozen other young meo of Fort Wayne who were friends of the deceased came also to pay their respects to the dead. Who Are to HUme? The local freight train No. 11 re ceived orders but the work train re ceived no orders. The engineer on No. t'l stated that be saw the light of the work engine, but thought it would go in on switch 1. After he discovered that the work engine had passed the swiicb, he endeavored to stop his train. He almost succeeded by the time the collision occurred. Tippeeanoe Teachers' Institute. The teachers of Tippecanoe town ship met in institute at Tippecanoe Nov. 2, l'.HJl. The opening exercises were conducted by Prof. S. A. Laird. The roll call ehowed all the teachers present. "Sanitation and Decoration" was pre sented by Miss Grace Hall in a well worded paper. She said the idea of sanitation and decoration was a good one, that the teachers needed such a book as a guide. That teachers are re quired to prepare rao6t of the decora tions themselves, but the cost was small and the gooi resulting from it great. The school house is the homeaf the pupils. She compared the schools of the thirteenth century with today. Mies Bessie Laird discussed the sub ject ably and Jhowed that the effect of proper sanitation and decoration was good for the school. Mies Emma Jordan asked the follow ing questions: 1. What should be the interior and exterior designs of the school hou6e? 2 We Often hear people say that the old schools were the best. Is ;t true? These questions were fully discussed. W. II. Towns discussed Indiana school fund. He explained the differ ent funds as follows: Surplus revenue fund, bank tax fund, tuition fund, sol vent funl and other funds.

Cooper discussed poets and poetry of Indiana. History, Europe in the nineteenth century, was taken up by Prof. S. A. Laird. He reviewed the causes of the French revolution and showed why Austria came out victorious. He said the people of France and Austria were clamoring for constitutional rights and that all the kings were untruthful. John Laird gave a short biography of Kossuth, Mazzina Manin and Gir ibaldi. Prof. Laird asked "What power has the teacher over the pupils while on the road to and from school." This question was discussed. The institute adjourned to meet at Tippecanoe Dec. 14, 1101.
