D. H. Moreland Mentioned in

Detroit. Mich.. Sept. 27.Six indict
ments were returned yesterday after:

particularly public works, for the last
two months. Five" of them were

works employe and contractor Henry
Merdian, a contractor, and his associ
ate, Robert Conway. Moreland is
named in each Of" the five indictments

Two of the indictments charge him
wit* conspiracy to defraud, and the
olhar three with misappropriation and
concerting prop* rty of the city to the
usa of others. In the first of the in
it is charged that Moreland, Merdian,
Conway, Wartell and White conspired

partment of public works for street

ond, that Moreland, with Wartell,
White and Hock, conspired in the
same month to defraud the city out

teaming bills. The other three indict
ments charge Moreland, under a spe
cial statute, with converting 1,735 feet
of Medina curb stone, valued at, $800,
to Thomas J. Kennedy with convert
ing 1,052 cubic yards of sand worth
$500, to Henry Merdian & Co., and
with converting 400 yards of crushed
atone, worth 400, to John Archer ami
The sixth indictment was not read
in court, and Prosecutor Hunt declined
to state whether or not it named any
of the persons mentioned in the other
Mr. Moreland came into court early

stood mute on advice of hits attorney.
The judge, accordingly, entered a
plea of not guilty and fixed Mi. More
land's bail on all five indictments at
$6,600. It was" given.
SPANKS HER IN COURT.
Father Chastises Daughter Publicly by
Order of the Court.
New York, Sept. 27.On several oc
casions Recorder Hyman Lazarus of
Bayonne has compelled fathers to
spank their wayward boys in open
court. Yesterday for the first time in
New Jersey, a girl was soundly
whipped in court by direction of Re
corder Lazarus. The girl was Katie
Kantor, nine years old, and the whip
ping was done by her father with a
cat-'o-nine-tails. After the operation,
which was very painful to the child,
was over, she promised her father and
the court never to lie or steal again.
Katie was arraigned with Mary Dwyer,
who lives in the same house with her
and is one year older. They were ar
rested for stealing eggs and groceries
from several stores. Their depreda
tions had been going on for months
and the police had hunted for small
boys before they got a clew which led
to the discovery of the two girls.
PRIEST SHORT IN ACCOUNTS.
Speculated in Mining Stocks With the
Money Belonging to the Church.
Denver, Sept. 27.The News says
Fther Callahan, the pastor of the ca
thedral parish and in charge of tie
finances of the- parish and for the
building of the new cathedral, is short
in his accounts to the amount of some
thing like $20,000. The entire amount
of the cathedral fund, $52,000. has
been invested in mining stocks by
Father Callahan, according to the
News, and at least half of the total
sum has been lost through depression
of the stocks. There is no suspicion
that Father Callahan has profited per
sonally from the affair. It is believed
that he began the speculation to iri
crease the cathedral fund, and after
learning that he was losing, has grad
ually invested the entire sum in order
to make good.
