The exemption of the church from taxation was the subject of a paper read by Rev. Father Gavisk before the Indianapolis Literary Club last night Father Gavisk defended the exemption of religious societies upon the ground of good policy. It U the tribute of the government to religion which 13 the formation of moral character, upon which good citizenship la based. Without religion society would develop Into anarchism. Another point taken by Father Gavisk was that the property f the church is a public propertv and. although under the control of the denomination, the doors of the church are open to the public. He denied tha; religion did not reach the masses and contended that of the 147 church organizations in Indianapolis probably not twenty of them could be called the churches of the wealthy and the well to do. He held that the American people were religious and that they had a profound rfp.?ct for the Institutions of religion. Father Gavisk thousht that it was to the Interests of pood Roverament to encourage this sentiment and that the public and private virtue anl good morals, which are the results of the existence of the church, are more than the equivalent for the privilege of exemption from taxation. He d:i not con.-iler that there was any danger of a union of church and state and doubted if any denomination would care about bringing about such a union. He thought there was no injustice in exemption, for the reason that, while all were not members of churches, yet they received an indirect benefit from religion in the improvement of the moral and social character of their neighbors.

Faylnfi-the Creditors of the Offlce. It has not been so long since the defalcation of John II Sullivan, Democratic county clerk, that the defalcation and subsequent events have been forgotten. Su31-cient time has elapsed, however, for the people to forget to Inquire the exact situation of the finances of the trust funds created on that account. John R. Wilson, the present county dark, was appointed by the Democratic County Commissioners to fill out the unexpired term of John E. Sullivan. He was appointed on Feb. 4, 1SSD, and filed hl3 report of his administration of the offlce on May 20, 1&D1. His report is as follows: "I have the honor of herewith reporting to you a statement of the receipts and expenditures of the county clerk's office from the 4th day of February, 1S83, to the 10th day of November, being the term in that offlce filled by me under the appointment of your honorable board. By reference thereto It will appear that I am chargtable, on account of fees collected, with a balance of $3,917.38, which amount, as evidenced by checks herewith presented, I turn over, to the board. I. also submit a detailed statement of fees accrued during said period and remaining uncollected, amounting In the aggregate to the sum of 110,411.55, and which statement Is hereto attached, marked 'Kxhibit A. "And I noxr transfer said uncollected fees to your honorable board and hereby relln- ?ulh ail interest and claim whatsoever that may hold therein. According to the arrangement with your honorable board the expenses of the office and my salary, at the rate of JS.ouO a year, were to be paid out of the fees. This has been Gone, and the remaining fees collected and uncollected were to be turned over to the board, to be applied by them for the benefit of the creditors of the otllce." Fees collected from Feb. 4, 18S3, to Feb. 4, IX) $18,753.57 Fees collected from Feb. 4, 1830, to Nov.

Any surplus over this amount was to be turned over to the commissioners. From the report it Is also seen that there was $3,917.33 in cash in Mr. Wilson's hand to turn over to the commissioners. On this re port the commissioners made the following order: John It. Wilson, clerk under appointment. Comes now John It. Wilson and having pre A LA lilt? liiailCl VI LvllCv ICU VJ sented his report of clerk by appointment to nil the unexpired term or John iJ. auiii-van as clerk of the Marion Circuit Court, and the board having considered the same. does now find and consider and adjudge that said John It. llson pay over out of the cash in his hands remaining as set forth In his report the sum of $3,5"0 to James. Itenihan and Daniel Burton; that Gus O' Bryan be and hereby is appointed as trustee to receive the residue of said cash and to collect, receive and take charge of the uncollected fees named In said report and In and about the management and disbursement of the moneys so received, the said O Bryan to act sublect to the order of this board. And it is further ordered that sail O'Brvan examine into said account of aid Wil3on as clerk and report to this board as to the same." Mr. Wilson says: "At the expiration of the term for which I was appointed I requested the Board of Commissioners to name an expert to tax the fees up to the date of the end of the term and to examine the taxations and collections theretofore made. Some one was appointed, either Mr. O'Bryan or Mr. Joyce. At the end of the term I asked the board for instruction and stated I was ready to make out my report at any time. A question was raised as to the custody of the funds and their disposition. I prepared and presented a report, but was directed to wait until the question was settled; the report was called for In May, 1S91, and the original report was brought down to date and filed. This Is the report that you have. I suggested to the board In the beginning that one of two things better be done either to enlarge the receivership of Captain Shepard (which related to Sullivan's fees), so as to embrace these fees accruing in the term for which I was appointed, or to appoint a new trustee. In either event I asked that my account be examined by an expert and a report be made to the board. This report was taken under advisement and the board appointed Mr. O'Bryan, then probate commissioner, as trustee to collect the fees due the board, except the sum of $3,500 paid the bondsmen, and to examine this report. All the moneys that came to my hands over and above the expenses and my salary at the rate of $5,000 a year were paid out by me under the order of the board. I presume you understand that it lakes from twelve to fourteen deputies to run this office and that they are largely skilled men; some have been in the ofllce or other offices of like character for many years, and this Is one reason that the office is expensive to the clerk. You also know that the first year of a clerk's term does not pay very much; In fact, every clerk during the first months of his term has either to pay the expenses of the oflice out of his pocket or borrow the money to do so, which is practioally the same thing. There 13 another fact about this ofllce that is not understood and that is, that a large percentage of the fees taxed are never paid. There are five courts, one out of the five does not pay enough to the clerk to compensate for deputy hire for one man. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 or 20 per cent, of the civil cases are divorce cases and out of these the clerk is doing well If he collect $2. If all the fees due the offlce were paid the oftice would be a very good office." Another reference to the report of Mr. Wilson will show that there was $417.3-ln his hands after paying to Ilenlhan and Burton the $3.5o0 ordered paid to them by the commissioners. Gus O'Bryan was appointed trustee to receive this money and to collect the uncollected fees due the office. which should be paid after the expiration of Mr. Wilson's term by the appointment of the commissioners. The report of Mr. Wilson shows the amount of uncollected fees to be $19,41L93. The funds turned over to Mr. O'Bryan and those afterwards collected by him were to be held subject to the order of the commissioners. ince the expiration of Mr. Wilson's appointive term of ofllce there hive been collected and turned over to trustee Gus O'Bryan $1,951.43. This, with the $417.33 turned over at the time of Mr. Wilson's report, makes a total of $2,353.81 that has been turned over to Trustee O'Bryan. In addition to this there are $im;.40 In the county clerk s oflice at this time due trustee O'Bryan. Mr. O'Bryan said yesterday he had never done anything towards paying out these funds, which are hoi 1 subject to the order o? the County Commissioners. The commissioners have made no order on the funds and done nothing towards settling the defalcation of Sullivan with the funds received from the f ?es of the office during the term for which he was elected. Mr. O'Bryan sail yesterday that he presumed it had been a year since he had tone into the clerk's offlce for the purpose of ascertaining what funds wero there due the trust of which he was trustee. The records quoted above show that the commissioners ordered $3,500 of the amount realized in fees from the office to be paid over to James Renihan and Daniel Burton, who were Sullivan's bondsmen. This amount was paid these men in pursuance to the order of the commissioners. The total amount of Sullivan's defalcation was $17,-9.13.81. anl In Judgment Record B is found Judgment after Judgment against the bondsmen which are unsailsnd. yet the cornmis-s oners allowed the bondsmen $3,500, giving Mem preference over the creditors of the oiflce who had lost by the defalcation of , the absconding Democratic clerk. Whether or not the commissioners had any legal right to thus prefer the bondsmen to the creditors of the office and give them precedence " of claim. If they had anj' claim against the fees of the office, is a question which probably never worried the Democratic commlsisoners In their efforts to save the bondsmen of the defaulting Democratic clerk. A question which the creditors of the office would probably like to have answered is why the commissioners have never made any order for the disposition of the funds which they have tied up In the hands of trustee O'Bryan. It is shown by the report of Mr. Wilson that there were $10,414.93 in uncollected fees at the time Mr. O'Bryan's trt st began. Of this amount but S2.347.S3 has since been collected, leav ing a balance of $3,061.10 in uncollected fees 1 due to the trust of Mr. O'Bryan. The ques- I tion naturally arises, nw long ao tne commissioners expect to have this fund lay idle and compel the creditors of the offlce to remain Avithout their money? They seem to have forgotten that any such fund 13 tied up because of their failure to make an order for its disposal. A SEARCH FOfi.FABK SITES. Joseph Earnnlmw, a Cincinnati Landscape Gardener, In the City. Joseph Earnshaw, a prominent landscape gardener of Cincinnati, came to the city last night on Invitation of the Commercial-Club committee on parks. He will be shown over the city and surrounding country today In order that he may express some opinion as to the most available location for a park. No particular grounds will be suggested to him, but he will be left free to point out spots or stretches of land that will seem to him the best suited for park purposes. His ideas are then to receive the consideration of the committee. The city committee, to co-operate with the Commercial Club committee, has not yet been appointed, but the Mayor will probably name it In a few days. "The editorial suggestion of the Journal that the debt of Indianapolis should not be Increased by the purchase of land for parks 13 likely to give a misleading Impression, of the purpose of our committee," said Mr. E. F. Claypool, chairman of the Commercial Club committee on parks, yesterday. "It is certainly not the Intention of our committee to indorse for adoption any measures, tbat are likely to bring additional burdens on the citizens of Indianapolis, without. In their opinion. It can be clearly shown that It is their wish, and that they will receive full value thirefor. Neither is it our desire to cause any amendment whatever to be made In the city charter for that purpose. The present statute of this State Is certainly broad enough to authorize and empower the city authorities to contract a debt for a public park, but there are some other features which seem desirable, such as are in effect In other well governed cities for the management and control of ftublic parks. These will be made known ater, after they have had the most c.ireful consideration. There will be ample time for Investigation of the subject before the Legislature convenes. "The work we have undertaken seems a difficult one to accomplish," continued Mr. Claypool, "and may or may not terminate successfully in procuring a better park system for Indianapolis. However, we are willing for a time to tlve the matter our best efforts in trying to formulate pome kind of a plan, such as will be acceptable to the people of this city, or. If we are unable to find a method that is not dangerous and disastrous to the city as our Interests are mutual and In common with those of the citizens on the question the undertaking will be abandoned and our mission as a committee will be at an end. Until we have had sufficient time for Investigation we rather hope to receive, at least, no adverse criticism from the good people or from the press of the city; then, if our plans and suggestions are not feasible, and they seem detrimental to public policy, they should as they will, no doubt, be met with a proper defeat; but should they be otherwise, and should they be regarded with favor and the work is undertaken, we will feel that our efforts have not been In vain." Extension of Garfield Pork. To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: I would be glad to be permitted to make one suggestion on the park question. We have now a beautiful plat or ground known as Garfield Park, through which run Bean creek and Pleasant run. There is a beautiful forest on the south of It, and all that is needed to make this pla;e large enough for lake, botanical and zoological display, together with fountains, observatories, caves and grottoes along the streams, walks, drives and pleasure grounds for Eromenades, and everything requisite for a eautiful and ample park, would b to purchase the ground that lies east of this park, extending the full length of the park on Shelby street from Raymond street to the south line of this park, making the park front on Shelby street. Then Raymond street need not be an outlet to this park. The ground east of the park Is In five, ten and twenty-acre tracts, with few Improvements. I would like to know what the people think of this. J. W. H. Indianapolis, Oct. 29. DISGUISED AS A COUNTRYMAN. One Peddler Arrested for Selling trlth Short Mensures. For the last few days Superintendent Powell has eyed with suspicion peddlers who offered apples and potatoes for sale on the principal down-town streets. The wagons were invariably padded with straw, hay or r witches, on top of which were a few pumpkins and a Jug with a corncob for a cork, suggestive of men from the rural districts. One peddler went so far as to have a loose colt in addition to the regular team of horses. The peddlers themselves were dressed to Imitate the most unsuspecting of countrymen, but with all, the superintendent thought he detected signs of affected originality. Yesterday, during the .hardest rain, he saw one of these wagons covered with a tarpaulin, the owner trying to dispose of his wares. Mr. Powell's .knowledge of hu-'-man nature told him that no countryman ever covered his goods during a rain or stayed out In the wet to eell goods. The farmer usually drives to a p'.ace of shelter until it stops raining. So the otftcer removed the tarpaulin and examined the measures. He found that the bushel measure lacked one-fifth of being the right size, and that the smaller measures were correspondingly short. He took the measures to the police station. To-day a warrant will be sworn out fcr the peddler's arrest as well as for others who may be found selling under similar circumstances. The peddler admitted to the superintendent that he had not been in the country since he was a boy, but that he played "the countryman" to disarm any suspicion that he was using measures with false bottoms. The Temple of Fame. An entertainment called the Temple of Fame was given last night at Tomllnson Hall. The amusement was under the auspices of the Friends' Boarding- Home for Women, and the proceeds will go towards its building fund.

Does Xot Think Captain Allen Shonld Be Classed as a State ORlcer The Law. Governor Matthews addressed a political meetingr at Terre Haute yesterday, and returned to Indianapolis last night He was seen shortly after his return home, and talked briefly of the Allen Manufacturing Company, which Is to employ convict labor in the construction of bicycles. Governor Matthews was not in possession of the de tails as to the new concern, and only knew that a contract for 150 convicts had been made with the prison officials. "The State was compelled to furnish some kind of .employment for Its prisoners," he said. "There are now three hundred men confined in the northern prison with nothing to do. For a long time the trustees have been trying to provide something, and a number of plans were proposed, but all fell through. These three hundred men were idle from morning until night, and had begun to contract disease through their inactivity. Something had to be done with them. A few weeks ago I met with the board of trustees and we discussed the matter. I told the members of the board that they should seek some employment for the men, and do it at once. The only available means of putting the men to work was this bicycle factory, which will employ about 150 of the prisoners. I don't know anything about the concern, and do not know who the stockholders and managers are." "Is it not a fact that the State laws pro hibit State officials from becoming members of concerns of this character?" the Gov ernor was asked. v "I did not know that State officials were connected with the establishment," he re plied. "How about Captain Allen, of Frankfort? Is he not a State omciai?" "Captain Allen is simply one of the State Tax Commissioners. I don't know that he could be called an of!lcI.l of the State reg ularly." AltOCND THE WOULD IN TWO YEARS. a no lonni; rpneiirinns irom sun Frnnclnco In Tovrn. Gus Koegel and Fred Thoemer, the former twenty-nine and the latter twenty-three years of age, arrived in this city last night on a tramp around the world. As their names indicate, they are German aiid both of them are pedestrians. Koegel walked from New York to San Francisco some time ago on a wager of $3,000, he claims, and won the wager. His tramping companion has also done some walking before starting on this trip. The tramp around the world Is made on a wager, .the men claim, of $16,000. They themselves have posted $6,000 and members of the sporting iratermty or san r rancisco have posted the remaining J10.WX). The b?t was ar ranged in the oflice of the San Francisco Chronicle. The men started from San Fran cisco on June 10, ls04, and are to make the circuit of the globe In two years. They carry with them diaries and blank books. in which they gret the autographs of some public official in every city where thev stop. This is for the purpose of proving that they nave been in the places named. In addition to the autograph they get some sort of an official seal. They usually iret the autograph of the postmaster or Mayor at their stopping place. In thiscity they have secured the autograph of Postmaster Sahm. They will call on Mayor Denny and City Clerk Nixon to-day and ask for their autographs. The two young men earn money with which to pay their expenses by selling photographs of themselves ord distributing advertisements along the route of their tramp for such persons as will give them the advertisements to distribute. They stopped at the Circle House last night and will remain in this city during the day. They are at liberty to do what they please at stopping places and stop as long as they wish so they , make the trip in two years. Proponed PoHtufllre ClinnRei. Postmaster Sahra has ?:awn up plans for the improvements to be made in the stamp department at the postofflce and will submit them to the department at Washington. By the new arrangement patrons of the office may purchase stamps and mall their letters without leaving the main building. The stamp room Is to be removed several feet west of its present position and the mad boxes are to be within easy reach. Postmaster Sahm expects to complete the work within the next two weeKs.
