FOR FORTY THOUSAND Col. "Dick" Thompson Sues tha Big New York Bankers, the Seligmans. INVOLVES A DEAL IN STOCKS •Which the Banker* Said TVoulil Be a Good Pi-rmuneiit Investment, but Which Wan No Good—The Jngrnm-Slaiichtor Feud mid K«ccnt Shooting — Mrs. Howurd Identifies the Wrong Mftn'n Kemaiu.s— Unusual Collision on the Kail. Terre Haute, Ind., Oct. 22.—R. W. Thomp.-un, former secretary of the navy, has entered, suit in the United States circuit court at New York to recover $40,000 damages from J. & "W. Seligman, bankers, of that city, for the alleged conversion of ?15,000 worth of stock to their own use to which he says he was the real subscriber. The suit was begun about two weeks ago and an answer is due on or before Nov. 4. In 1SS5 Thompson subscribed $15,000 to the flock ol' the Aztec i.and and Catili- company. The 1 L-: hare was made by the banking firm ir. behalf of the former secretary. A tfleprram from New York quotes Kerry Stligman as saying that the books of the firm showed that the stock is credited to Thompson acd that there was no attempt to deprive him of his just belongings. Colonel Ingersoll represents Thompson in the suit. The allegation is made by the former secreatry that the hanking firm simply tock the $15,000 from him and did not credit him with the purchase of the stock. Found That He Had Xo Certificate. In the complaint fUefl with the clerk of the United States circuit court a.t New York the story is recited that Jesse Seligman went to Colonel Thompson one day in 1SS4. and offered him a permanent Investment that would bring about good results. It was stock in the Azetc Land and Cattle company, which owned immense tracts of land in Arizona and numerous cattle. Thompson agreed to invest $15,000, and accordingly he claims that sum was deducted from his account book with the bank, and he supposed himself to be the owner of 150 shares of the company's stock. After a time Thompson removed from New York to his old home in Indiana. He heard nothing further of his investment, and suddenly awoke to a realization of the fact that he had no stock certificate to show that he had spent $15.000. Therefore he wrote to the Selig- mans. He then learned, so he claims, that all the stock stood In their name, and that, so far as the company's books were concerned, he was unknown. Stock Had >fo Commercial Value. In 1SU4 he wanted $15,000 badly and wrote the banking house that, as he had never had any dividends or any certificate of stock in the cattle company, he would like the money which had been deducted from his bank account. He failed to receive a reply that was satisfactory to him, but after further correspondence was told that, while the bank would not refund the money, it would have 150 shares made out in his name. Thompson unwillingly consented to this, taking the stock at par. Recently, he claims, he looked up the Aztec Land and Cattle company's affairs and discovered that while the company, the land, and the cattle really existed, the utock had no commercial value and was not listed. He communicated with Colonel Ingersoll. who consulted with the Seligmans, but they would make no other settlement than that already made. DETAH.S OF A GCX FIGHT would rather be a negro lover than an old rebel." Lr-t-an struck him with a brick, knocking him ser,K:!ess. Attempt to Wreck a Train. English, Ind., Oct. 23.—Another attempt at wrecking a train was prevented late Thursday evening by the discovery of wedge-shaped nones placed on i:ie heavy gra'e west of town. . John Z J eonard, a farmer, who found and removed them, represents that the stones were placed one on each side, at a distance of ten or twelve feet apart. The railway employes will appoint a watchman, and the county will do likewise. Freight Cars Knn Away. Indianapolis, Oct. 23.—The Indianapolis and Vincennes had a. wrrrk that occurred in an unusal manner. Near Friendswood the cabin car and three other cars at the end of the first train broke loose and started down the hill. The grade was so steep that the cars -were running thirty miles an hour when they .struck the engine of the second train. The trainmen saw the cars coming and jumped. No one was hurt. Oil Tanks on the Sfonon Explode.. New Albany. Ind., Oct. 23.—Three oil tanks on a Monon freight train exploded near this city yesterday morning. The train was on a down grade and the cars behind the oil tanks were destroyed. The cars in front of the burning tanks were pulled Into New Albany. The cross ties were burned for 30u yards and the rails so warped that traffic was delayed ten hours. None of the trainmen wore hurt. Not Howard's Corpus Delicti. JeffersonvilJe. Ind., Oct. 23— \Vnile Mrs. Joseph Howard, of Washington county, was here preparing to take the supposed remains of her husband home fur interment a letter arrived from him saying that he was in Nashville. Two weeks ago he mysteriously disappeared, and the remains of a murdered man found in the Portland canal were identified as those of Howard. Is a Great Celery Kaiser. Indianapolis, Oct. 23.-C. B. Harris, of Goshen, who was yesterday appointed consul to Nasra«ki, Japan, is known widely because he is president of the Indiana state board of agriculture, and because he raises more celery than any man in Indiana. Senator Fairbanks has offered the place to four other Hoosiers, who have each declined: Harris accepts. Famous as a Cook. Plymouth. Ind., Oct. 23.—Miss Mary Ann Schroeder died very suddenly at her home near this city, aged 46. She was the daughter of the first white settler in this county and was famous over the entire sta.te as a cook, her products having taken first premium many times at state and county fairs. Heart failure was the cause. LUETGERT'S CASE TAKES A REST. ODD FELLOWS. Grand H«pre»ent»tiTe From Pennsylvania. Triple Link Jiote*. Major •William A. TVitherup of Philadelphia, past grand master of the grand lodge of Pennsylvania, past grand patriarch of the grand" encampment and representative to the sovereign grand lodge, is one of the best known and most popular members of the order in his jurisdiction. Bro.

Mr. Withemp is also secretary of the Hall association. The Rebekah branch shows an increase of 27,998 for the past yeaj, with a present membership of 281,041. The cost of maintaining the Odd Fellows' home of Vermont x l»st year was $9,522. As the home has but tiro inniaces, it would seem to be a very expensive way of taking care of their :iged and indigent brothers. Boston, the hub of the universe, is the place where the 1898 session of the sovereign grand lodge is to be held. The price of the official receipts now on hand has been reduced by the sovereign grand lodge to $1.50 per book of 100 receipts. A new Bebekah ritual, to be issued to lodges without coat, and a new official receipt at $1 per 100, is the way the sovereign grand lodge made amends for the work of a year ago. There are 41 lodges of Odd Fellows In Which the Ingraiii-SIansrhter Feud Cropped Out with l^iry. Bedford. Ind., Oct. 23.—The shooting affair in Boone township Thursday was a second outbreak of the Insram- Slaughter feud, which occupied several lays of the September term of court, in ivhieh Ingram claimed damages for a severe beatingr administered by Slaughter. The case was compromised by Slaughter paying Ingram $300 and costs of prosecution. The wounded men are George Slaughter and John Holsapple. The former married a step-daughter of Tile Ingram. Several years ago there was a falling out because of differences over division of property left by the mother of Slaughter's wife. The assault upon Ingram grew out of this trouble. Green Salughter is a half-nephew of George Slaughter, and in September last he married a daughter of Ingram by George Slaughter's mother-in-law, and since hia marriage he has lived with Ingram. Thursday Green Slaughter started on a hunting expedition, armed with his shotgun and revolver, and while pass- Ing through the woods he passed George Slaughter and Holsapple, who were putting up a wire fence. Green Slaughter ficcosted George concerning language understood to have been used with reference to Green's wife, and the men came together. Green claims that George drew Holsapple in front of him. and then struck at him with a hand- axe, wounding him on the back of his hand. Green then used his shotgun, firing at Holsapple. Part of th£ load struck Holsapple in the hips, and the rest took effect in the body and legs of George Slaughter. Both of the injured men fell to the ground, but afterward regained their foot and retreated as best they could, claiming as they did so that Green Slaughter fired five more shots in their direction, this time using his revolver- After the fight Green Slaughterreturned to Ir.gram's home and surrendered himself to the authorities. This is the third murderous affray within a week or ten days in Lawrence county. During the September term Judge Martin sentenced seven criminals to prison and the reformatory. Indulged in YTajf Dispute*. Greensburg-, Ind., Oct. 23.—John L«ogan has been placed under Jl.OOObonds, growing out of an assault on Henry Carter. an old soldier. Som« time ag-o, while Logan and Carter were standing together a colored man passed, whom Carter caluted with a pleasant remark. LoyaD testily commented on Cartel's friendliness for the colored man. finally saying "You are a negro •worshiper." Carter pleasantly replied that he voted that way, and he fought three yean for th« freedom of tilt negro, and he addrt: "I torney McEwen, ex-Judge Vincent and Attorney Phalen had an informal conference lasting- more than one hour in the judge's private chamber yesterday. No agreement aws reached at the conference. State's Attorney Deneen vigorously opposed the demand that the prisoner he released on bail, and the upshot of the argument was that no formal demand for the prisoner's admission to bail was made. Ex-Judge Vincent said he would let the matter rest for two or three days and then make formal application, When the application is made it will probably be by way of habeas corpus before another judge. As to a new trial, it is hardly possible to have it in this county, or any other county nearby. The papers have so fully printed the details of the evidence that it is almost impossible that any or,e who has read them can have failed to form an opinion and a very decided one. George Middletor., the manager of the museum, was in the criminal court building yesterday, and it was said he was ready to schedule $25,000 and to sign Luetgerfs bonds if the noted prisoner would place himself on exhibition at a salary of ?500 per week. Luetgert did not look on the proposition with favor at all. The Weatbor We May E.xpoct. •Washing-ton.
