From a Common Thief He Tarns Highway Bobber. A few months ago Fred Chambers, young man whose parents reside at Clymer's Station, was arrested for .tealing a sum of money from the home of a relative at Peru. Just how he got out of that trouble is unknown here, anyhow he is a prisoner n the Cass county jail, charged with highway robbery. His accuser Is Edward Day, a colored man employed at the Kenneth quarries. According to Day's story he drew his pay yesterday and came to the city for a time. He met Chambers and the latter had many drinks at his expense. While on the rounds Day very unwisely ex- nibited a pocketbook containing a 85 bill, then placed the book In the; inner pocket of his vest. Arriving at a point near the Wabash station Chambers held Day up and Jrelieved A RECEIVER Takes Charge of the Terre Haute Street Electric Railway System.

A further search disclosed the presence of $4 in one of his shoes, Chambers then confessed that he had taken the money from Day by force, and he was locked up on the charge of highway robbery. The prisoner will be given a preliminary tomorrow. The money taken from Chambers was returned to Day, who was also committed to jail and being held as a witness. linauent taxes amounting to 84,949^67. This action forced the company into the hands of a receiver and at noon, upon application of the city, Judge Henry appointed Internal Revenue Collector Joshua Jump to take charge of the property. Judge Jump qualified by filing a bond of 850,000, and at 1 o'clock street car traffic was resumed. The petition alleged that the company iad a first mortgage indebtedness of $400,000, besides owing the city 14,949.68 for taxes, $9.428.52 for street improvements and $746.59 for repairing a paved alley.

Again Last She Was Out Looking for a Beiolrer and the Police Locked Her Up. Daisy Allen, the young woman who lifted a watch from the pocket of Joseph Ross on Broadway Saturday evening and held the ticker as security for a loan of 11.75, was on the war path again last night. It appears that she was not satisfied with the settlement made with Ross, and proceeding to Crawford's hardware store last evening attempted to buy a revolver. Her conduct aroused the suspicion of the clerk and he put the prices of the revolvers beyond her ability to buy. After she had left the store Patrolman Liming having been told of her determination to buy a gun, started In pursuit. He overtook her as she was in the act of entering the store of E. S. Rice & SOB. She was locked up, but at that declarad that she was In need of a revolver, and when released would purchase one and end the existence of her enemies. An hour after the Allen woman had been committed to jail her relatives appeared at police head Quarters and attempted to secure her release, but Dr. Hclloway, who had seen her at the jail, advised against such a move, as he believed her to be insane. She still languishes, and the probabilities are that she will be sent to Longclift hospital for treatment. CHICAGO SURKKTS Received Dally by W. W. Mllner, at 6. A. R. Building.
