SALOON FIGHT UP
TO COUNCIL
It is expected that the Inland
brewery application for a saloon li
cense in the shadow of the new Y.
M. 0. A. building will come before
the council tonight. The associa

some time to keep a saloon out of
its doorway, but the brewery is de
termined to stick one there if it
can bring enough influence to bear
on the council.
The Y. M. C. A. is maintaining a
regularly organized school at its
headquarters and the saloon is
within the limit distance fixed by
law for saloons in relation to edu
cational Institutions, if the coun
cil grants the license a fight is
likely to result over the legal point
involved. A saloon at the same
location, in the Lincoln, was closed
a year ago on a lease provision pro
tecting the property from such

the brewery company has been

CENTRAL BODY APPROVES
DEAL FOR THREE LOTS ON
RIVERSIDE AY. BETWEEN
JEFFERSON AND MADISON
A deal for (he new labor temple
site was practically consummated
last night at a meeting of the
central labor union. Harry Burke,
of the Cooke-Clarke realty firm,
submitted a proposition that the
unions purchase lots 18, 19 and 20
in block 4 of Glover's addition,
with about 150 foot frontage on
Riverside ay. between Madison and
Jefferson sts. It was finally de
cided to purchase the site for $35,-
--000, which real estate men declare
to be a low figure considering the
present high values of property in
the vicinity.
One thousand dollars to clinch
the tieal was paid today. Before
May 7 $13,600 must be paid, and
after that an interest of $2,400 a
year on the balance.

PARIS, April 14— Cassie Chad

Outclassed by Henri Rochette, a 'AO
year old Frenchman who in four
years has taken $20,000,000 from
French and Spanish Investors in
exchange for bogus company
shares. Rochette has been arrest
ed and his trial will bring to light
financial methods that will make
Cassie Ctiadwick turn in her grave
with envy.
Rochette started in life as an of
fice hoy and went to night school to
study banking and finance. Then
he got a jolt in a hank, saved a tit
tle money and started out on his
career of crime. He took up com
pany promoting, and soon got to
know more about the ins aud outs
of shady financing than anybody
else In Paris.
As a starter he floated the Min
ing and Industrial bank, with $100,-
--000 capital. Then came two more
companies, put on the market with
$400,00(1 capital each, and they were
followed by a big coup, whereby the
Franco Spanish bank was organized
and $1.00n,000 worth of shares sold.
For four years Company after com
pany was evolved from Koehette's
brain and be couldn't issue sbarea

Everybody he met wanted to be

parade which will march down the
main streets at the head of the
union bodies at noon.
All fiext week laboring men will
devote much time to raising
money for the temple. There is al
ready consideraole money in the
treasury from the Columbia bene
fit, but It is planned to use as lit
tle of it at present as possible. The
various unions are to put in a
share of the amount which is to De
paid May 7.
Among the future plans for the
temple are a union laundry in the
basement. The union temple will
be heated throughout from the
laundry.
It is also planned to become in
dependent of the W. W. P. Co. by
installing an electric plant with
power generated from the laundry.
An apartment will be made for
the Labor World plant, probably on
the first floor. The second floor
will be for a banquet room.
The site contains more ground
than will be needed for the tem
ple, and the extra space will prob
ably be rented at a figure sufficient
at least to pay the interest on the
balance of money which the unions
have their own time to pay up.
a good deal, as heretofore the rock
has cost $1.34 a cubic yard. The
property where the bins are located
belongs to D. C. Cortdn, who some
time ago agreed to pay the city 60
cents a cubic yard to remove the
rock in place. Burke & Willett will
now collect this.
A considerable outlay of money
will be necessary to purchase a
rock crusher, as the city will take
its own to some other location.

WHO VERIFIED DATES, PEN

DERFUL COUPLE — HAVE
OVER 1500 DESCENDANTS,
, ONE A GREAT-GREAT-GREAT
GREAT-GRANDCHILD, i
BERLIN, April 14 — Wedded in
1808 and bride and bridegroom still
alive!
This, the most remarkable mar
ried couple In all the world, have
just celebrated their hundredth
matrimonial anniversary in the
village of Isombolg, Hungary.
The Emperor Francis Joseph sent
a congratulatory message and a
present of money, which was
handed out to husband and wifo
by the local officials, and many
other presents have poured in from
persons interested in the couple.
The long wedded couple are
named Szarthmari. The village rec
ords still contain authentic entries
relating to their births and mar
riage. The husband was born.
March 2, 1768, and the wife Feb. 12,
1792. Their marriage took place at
the village church in March, 1808.
Szarthmari lived and worked as"
a farmer until he retired at the age
of 90, when he handed over the
management of the farm to one of
his great-grandsons. When he
reached his hundredth birthday, 20
years ago, several residents of
Isombolg appealed to Emperor
Francis Joseph to grant the old
man a pension for the remainder of
his life in order that he should be
rendered independent of his rela
tives and descendants, such de
penence being repulsive to him.
The emperor sent an agent to Isom
bolg to examine the official regis
ters and find out whether Szathroa
ri was really as old as was stated.
The records being verified, the em
peror granted Szathmari an annual
pension of $300. Four years later,
when Mrs. Szathmari reached her
hundreth birthday, she, too, was
granted a pension of $100 dollars
per annum.
The first child was born in 1809,
and the first grandchild in 1830.
Two sons are still living, one be
ing 93 and the other 92 years of
age. Ten other children are dead.
Altogether the aged couple have
had more than 80 grandchildren,
more than 400 great-grandchildren,
and more than 1,000 great-great
grandchildren. There are also
great-great-great-grandchildren, one
great-great-great - great - grandchild
alive.
Their descendants have gone
forth from the remote village into
all parts of the world. Great-grand
children and younger descendants
are living in various parts of Amer
ica, including Cleveland. Cincinnati,
St. Louis, San Francisco, Los An
geles, Chicago, Milwaukee and Lou
isville. Other descendants are in
Australia, but the majority have
continued to live in Hungary.
Neither Szathmari nor his wife
has ever been far away from their
home at Isambolg. which has a
papulation of 1200 people. Neither
of them has ever set foot in a city.
The extent of their travels has
been a distance of 40 or 50 miles
in the surrounding agricultural
country.
The aged couple now live in a
four-roomed cottage and two of
their great-great-grandchildren live
with them and watch over their
needs. Szathmari is deaf and al
most blind, but otherwise compara
tively hale and hearty. He wears
the old-time Hungarian national
costume, consisting of a long coat
which reaches to the knees, a mot
ley waistcoat of many colors, an
embroidered belt, knee breeches
and woolen stockings.
He can walk about alone, sup
porting himself with a stout stick.
He drinks three or four glasses of
heavy Hungarian wine every day,
and smokes his pipe almost inces
santly from morning till night. His
wife is also deaf, but Otherwise she
is in good health. Both of them en-
Joy a hearty meal, and both delight
to see their descendants around
them.
