Plea to Al.oll.h It Entirely, n Uam lleen Done in Otlier State The Slyer inqnent. Coroner Castor's first bill was the topic of comment In Republican circles yesterday, regret being the tone of many of the remarks while more condemned the system. Perhaps the remarks of a well-known lawyer, who has been familiar with Marion county affairs all his life, were the most sgnlflcant as indicating public sentiment. "I had hopd better things," he said, "but I recognise how difficult it Is to reform a bad system. All legislation in recent years relating to that office has been to open a highway to the money of the tax-payerl The present statute affecting the coroner Is the most skillful device for fee grabbing on record and the construction of It haa been even more Ingenious. That is a grand original theory which enables an official jto charge a full day for an hour's work and which enables him to put ninety days' salary into a month." . Warnilns up, this lawyer said: "The coroner is a relic of the past. when. In Great Britain and this country, the police power was not organized as it now is. It should he abolished, since all of the legitimate duties of the office can be performed by the police and prosecuting officers. If, however. It is continued, the Legislature should limit the lutle3 of the coroner so that his Investigations will be confined to cases where there is a reasonable ground to susp?ct murder. Now, everybody who can get a cent out of it is on the lookout for sudden deaths to report to the coroner and the coroner gets $10 for viewing the corpse! Just think of it! A man fal!3 dead on the street of heart disease; any physician standing near can see It and everyone who looks on knows the man is dead. Why pay a coroner $10 for viewing, when a hundred men have seen that the nvm Is dead. His body should be cared for by the police, the natural olRcers to attend to such matters. It has been worse than this. Last year Mr. fell dead In his home. lie had had attacks of heart disease. A doctor was called, who pronounce I the man d?ad, but before the grief-stricken family had collected their senses the coroner appeared and practically took charge of the body until he made an entirely useless Investigation enough to get a fee of $10. Why should a coroner be called and paid $10 for viewing the body of a suicide and why take testimony? The suicide cannot be punished and no one will be the gainer, but coroners, clerks, constables and the regulation witnesses. Why should the coroner be compelled to take the testimony of every person who ap-rears and desires to cam a witness fee by telling inconsequential things about a suicide? Who will tell me why an autopsy Is necessary whsn, as In a recent case, no good could come from it except to the doctors making it? No more Important mat-tor can coma before the Legislature than a modification of the laws regarding coroners, which will confine thair duties to examinations of cases of probable murder and fix a salary in the large counties," "I have no faith in ail the talk to the effect that no officers should receive fees," said another lawyer. "Look at the delinquent taxes in this county why is It? Uecause the treasurer has no Interest in the collection, lie is paid a large salary. It is true, but he would not make himself disagreeable, to delinquents without he gets a per cent, for his work. Serving executions for lawyers is a disagreeable business and since the sheriffs have bsen paid salaries some of us have had the greatest difficulty in getting such officers to do It promptly. At times it has seemed almost impossible." "Is there no law," said a business man who had heard this statement, "to compel a public officer to do his duty in Indiana? I hear of no trouble in regard to United States collectors of Internal revenue and district attorneys. ' Salaried men do all the collecting for 'banks and private business houses and the tendency In the federal government is to get clear of the fee system. Can there be some way devised to compel county treasurers and sheriffs to do their duty?" "There must be a great difference in counties." said Representative Merritt. of Lagrange county, yesterday. "We have scarcely any delinquent taxes and a piece of prop?rty las not been sold for taxes In years. How are the taxes collected?-The treasurer's agents seek the delinquents personally and thus they get their taxes. I believe, from what I have seen, that the collecting officers are more responsible for large tax arrears than are thd men who owe the taxes." 14 COIlOEIt I2XFLA1XS 3IYEnS CASB. Commlsftlonera Will Invewtljrate tle Law Before Allowing Ills Hills. All the papers filed with the County Commissioners by Coroner Castor, Monday afternoon, were turned over to the com-mUsloners' attorney, Arthur V. Brown, yesterday, for examination. lie will ecan them carefully and look up the law bearing on the case before the commissioners will make any allowance on the bill3. In the coroner's bill Is a, cOiarge of $12.50 for holding an Inquest In the of the death of brakeman Myers, -who -wa killed by a Big Four train In Shelby county. Yesterday the commissioners received a letter from W. P. Knapp, coroner of Bheiby county, stating that he had held an inquest the day this man was killed, and rendered a verdict In accordance with the facts. When the body was sent here for burial "Coroner Oastor held another inquest and examined all the witnesses In the case. At the time thla Inquest was held Coroner Castor was asked why he conducted it, instead of allowing the coroner of the county in which the death occurred to make the Investigation. lie answered 'tha,t It was the duty of the coroner in the county where the remains "were buried to hold the Inquest. The. Supreme Court, in the case of Jameson vs. the Board of County Commissioners, reported In the Sixty-fourth Indiana Supreme Court Reports, held that the coroner in which the remains were buried was authorized to hold Inquests only in cases where facts discovered after the burial made 'an Investigation necessary. Dr. Castor said last night, in speaking o! -the 'Myers case, that he held the inquest believing no previous inquest had been (held. He said: "I was called by Flanner & Buchanan at night and notified that they had received the remains of a man who had. been killed by a -Big Four train. I went to their morgue, ind when I found the man had been killed la Shelby county I asked If an inquest had been held. They toad no knowledge of any. I called up an operator in one of the Big Four offices, who seemed to be the only man who knew anything about the case, but he did not know of any inquest having been held. The relatives were anxious to remove the body, and I proceeded with the inquest, not knowing one had been held." "Are you going to insist on the payment of that portion of the bill?" - "If the commissioners refuse to r-ay that I shall not object, although I did the work In full belief that I was doing my duty." A VAIL FOB WHITE RIVER. Scheme In Connection with Proposed System of Parka. Ths plans of Karnshaw & Punshon for a park system for Indianapolis were before a meeting of the Joint committees at the Commercial Club rooms yesterday afternoon. The committee will personally inspect the ground before proceeding further with the plans. This will be done within the next week. Dr. H. It. Allen submitted some suggestions regarding the utilization of White river and Fall crek in making resorts. "White river and Fall creek," paid he, "could be made to furnish waters to afford yachting, boating and fishing and tkatlng, besides an unlimited amount of Ice for citizens. The weary and tired could, on hot summer nights, ' enjoy the cooling breeres upon the water on board a steam yacht as thoroughly as If It were the Potomac or the SchuylkllL A fifteen or twenty miles ride on steam yachts, large enough to acommodate hundreds of people, would do more for the enjoyment and comfort of Indianapolis than almost any other mean. The method of accomplishing this would be to place a dam in White river above the old wooden bridge at the foot of Washington etrett, and the water power froii hi dam could be utilized most of the v. : by factories, making it a good investment for that purpose aione and adding to the manufacturing interest of Indlanajwlls. While It would not be equal to a Minnehaha, which has built the city of Minneapolis, yet it would be much in the power required to drive machinery. This would so increase the body of water of Fall creek and White river as to develop two splendid sheets of navigable water along the lines of the most available lami3 for parks. A portion of the power could be utilized to drive dynamos and the power transmitted to motors and pumps for fountains and water falls In the parks. Many of the banks of White river are pictures-iue and bc-autiful if seen from the river.. A dam of five feet would be required to mak? the river navigable to the dam of Broad Ripple. I have not had time to estimate the cost of the dam, but other expenses to be incurred by damming the river would be very slight, as it seems without an, actual survey." AN OHIO LADY KILLER TRIKS HIS AVII.CS IV THIS CITY AND CSKTS INTO TROII1LE. Follows n A'onnsr Lady from the Courthouse Offer an Insnlt on the Street. J. G. Duncan, a traveling salesman from Cincinnati, was arrested about 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Sergeant Dawson on three charges, intoxication, offending a person on the street and resisting' an' officer. The case is an aggravated one, as judged by the statements of the witnesses, it being alleged that a young woman stenographer in one of the offices at the State-house, was Insulted. Duncan is registered at the Denison Hotel. He is a handsome man, with a neat mustache, dresses well, wears glasses and In appearance Is a "lady killer." About noon yesterday Sergeant Dawson observed him standing behind one of the pillars in the basement of 'the courthouse. He appeared to be waiting for some one and at the same time seemed afraid of being seen. Sergeant Dawson asked him if there was anyone whom he wished to see and Duncan ordered the officer to leave thj building. The Sergeant was taken by surprise and wondered who the officious individual was, so he decided to wait and e. Presently a young lady came from tha city clerk's office and the man behind the pillar began to straighten his tie, draw himself together proudly and curl his mustache. He made a little noise by coughing slightly, evidently intended to attract the young lady's attention, but she walked straight ahead bestowing no attention upon him. She walked to the corner of Washington and Alabama streets to wait for a car. Duncan was but a few yards behind, having followed her from the building. Sergeant Dawson was also in the vicinity, having followed Duncan. While the young lady was waiting Duncan approached her and, gallanty lifting his hat, made some casual remark about the weather. But the weather soon grew chilly, for the young lady gave him a hard, cold stare and turning her back upon him said in a voice which was heard by the expressmen standing on the corner: "I wish you would go away and mind your own alfalrs." The man from Cincinnati evidently did not see Sergeant Dawson coming and ' if he did he probably stood In Ignorance of tho fact that he was an officer of the law. Dawson seized Duncan by the collar and politely informed him that he was under arrest. Then commenced a merry war Duncan fighting desperately. Joe Foppiano chanced along and gave the sergeant a helping hand. Patrolman Dllts came to the scene and the three half dragged and half carried the traveler from Cincinnati to police headquarters. Dllta has a persuasive way of his own and after he had used It Duncan straightened himself and stood up without aid while he was being slated. A Journal reporter tried to Induce Duncan to tell his side of tho affair. "I have nothing at all to say," he said, and then followed a series of adjectives which would not look well in print but which were aimed at the Republican party. To the latter Mr. Duncan blamed all his woes and he said he would never, never, in all his life, vote the Republican ticket again. . . BIG FOUR HOSPITALS. pne AVlll Re Built Here Xcxt A'enr for Use of Employes. The surgeons in the employ of the Big Four road, about forty in number, met at the Denison House yesterday and, formed an association entirely independent of the Hospital association. Dr. J. IL Ford, of Wabash, was the promoter of the project, which ha3 for its object the establishment of hospitals for the benefit of the employes of the Big Four system. One of the hospitals Is to be established in this city, and it is the plan to maintain It by small assessments against employes. The location for the other hospitals have not yet been decided upon. A dispensary is to be established at Brightwood, where, em. ployes can obtain drugs and medical treatment. Hy assessments it is thought that SIO.OX) a. year can be raised. The nospltals are to be Independent of the company, and In entering one of these hospitals an employe will not abridge any of his rights to sue the company. At the meeting last night Dr. Marsee, of this city, was chosen president; Dr. Weaver, of Dayton, O., vic president, and Dr. Kelly, of Columbus, O., secretary. BUTLER UNIVERSITY CADETS. Preparing: for the Colics Contest, to Re Held Xext May. Colonel Defrees, of the L L..I., has been giving one day a week to the drilling of the company of cadets at Butler University. The company now ccntalns forty-five members, but since the i'ootball season haa closed It is probable the football men, who refrained from going Into the company at the first of the season because of their training for the football games, will now Join the company, which is entirely voluntary in its ties. Colonel Defrees will there-fare give two days a week to the drill in the future. He hopes to get the company, he says, in readiness for the drill contest among the colleges supporting 'uniformed companies, which is ncrw scheduled to occur next May. The Butler company drilled vesterday for -the first time in their uniforms. The contest will include DePauw, Purdue and Vlncennes. DePauw has a battalion of 173 members, Purdue one of 200. and Vlncennes one of r0, which Is Just the number required by the federal government before It will assign en army officer to the institution. Sheriff Linkenhnner Good Lnck. Attorney-general Ketoham yesterday rendered a:f opinion that the death of John English, -who was elected sheriff! of Jay oounty at the last election, but, having died the day after elsction, before he could qualify, gives the office for another two" years to Ms late opponent, the present Democratic Incumbent, named Linkenhaucr. English, was elected by 770 plurality in a Democratic county. There have been other cases of the kind which have been passed upon by the Supreme Court, and the Attorney-general could do nothing except to direct the County Commissioner" who aaked for an pinion, in the same way the court of final resort has done. Linkenhaucr. in the Attorney-general's unofficial opinion, had a streak of rare luck in gaining the emoluments of the office after the people had voted him out xt office. AVlll Tell AVhy AVheat ls Low. The State Board of Agriculture has secured .William C. Welles. of West Virginia, to make an address at one of the series of agricultural meetings at the State-house next month. His topic Is "The Eco- nondes of Farming," and one of the themes he will discuss is why the price of wheat has fallen from $1 to &0 cents a bushel, when the amount consumed per capita has rather increased than otherwise, and the amount raised per capita in this country is not greater. The board has invited several notable persons to speak at these meetings, the intention being to make them far more attractive than ever before.

Saym Every Christian Shonld Save One Sinner Stndy of the Illhle t.e , Secret of Success. Rev. Ford C. Ottman. of Newark, X. J., preached at the Meridian-street M. E. Church last night. His text was taken from the eighth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles and related to the conversion of the eunuch by Philip. It was Introduced by a brief recital of the work of Philip immediately preceding the conversion of the eunuch. Mr. Ottman said that after the stoning of Stephen there followed a persecution of the early Christians, and the apostles and disciples of Christ scattered and began preaching the gospel to various peoples. Philip went into Samaria. He was preaching there, holding a sort of revival meeting, as it were, and the people gave heed to what be was saying. The chapter of the gospel referring to the wortt of Philip says it was a time of great Joy in the city where he was preaching, and Mr. Ottman said he wondered not at that, far It was always a great joy to any city whf n the people gave heed to the word of God and 'accepted the salvation offered by Christ, and suck It would prove to be in this city. While Philip was in. the midst of the revival - the Lord spoke to him and bade him to go down into the desert, and it was in obedience to this command that he went and there met the eunuch who was converted. The story was taken as a foundation for a discourse upon the importance of going after the Individual and the point was strongly emphasized by Dr. Ottman in his sermon. The burden of his plea was for every Christian to strive to win one soul, and to not consider the individual as insignificant and seek- to make conversions by the dozen. He ald Philip left the revival, which he had been holding, aud went down in the desert- upon the command of God for the sake of winning the eunuch. The Btory of the-eunuch was also used to illustrate that the mere holdjng of a revival service was not all that was essential to accomplish the conversion of sinners. "There are Individuals who have not been touched by this revival being held in this city," said Mr. Ottman, "and there are enough of you Christians to go out after them and bring every one Of them into the kingdom of Uod. There are enough sinners to go around also, and none of you need think there Is no one for you to go alter. If you get in communion with God, as Philip was, and send up a prayer to 111m, before another day dawns he will tell you the name of the person He wants you to seek out. Philip was not ambitious to gain either fortune or fame, but solely to tell men of the Savior. Thero are peopla in this house to-night who will stand before God on the Judgment day and will not be able to recall having led one single soul to Christ. You may ay that Cod never spoke to you and commanded you" to go out after the soul of an individual as He did to Philip. If He has not it is because you are not in as close communion with Him as was Philip, Get into that kind of a communion with God and He will tell you as much as he told Philip. If God has not spoken to you, it is either because He knew it would do no good for Him to do so, or He knew you would not hear Him if He did f peak, it is possible foe us of to-day to get into as cose communion with God as Philip did. The only thing that is required is a surrendered heart. When you surrender your heart to Him the-spirit of God will direct you and you will know what it is He wants you to do It requires faith to get into close communion with God. You must have a firm and abiding faith in Him. Philip had faith and when the vodce of God called him he went. Philip also had courage, and it will require courage for you to win souls for Christ. "One of the hardest things I know of Is to speak to another t person about their soul. You will have to gat cob-webbed theories out of your bead and preach Jesus to all the world before you can do anything as a soul winner. You must know and Btudy the Bible. A thing that surprises me very much is the Ignorance of Christians of things concerning the Bible. You need not know it as tome people know it. You who are Christians should know more about the book. It i3 criminal negligence not to know enough about the Bible to be able to point souls to Christ. Philip was enthusiastic in his work, and you will have to be if you want to be a soul winner. If we had; in our churches, one-half the enthusiasm we have in our political clubs it would be but a short time till the whole city" would be con verted. At the conclusion of the sermon all heads were bowed in silent prayer for a moment, while the inquirers' cards were being distributed. Rev. Ford C. Ottman Is about thirty-five years of age. He is rather below the medium in build and slijrhtly heavy for his height. He has a dark mustache and a face that seems to wear a continual smile of contentment. His skin Is soft and lender, and when he shakes hands he has a way of clasping the hand that is magnetic and makes the blood tingle in one's veins. He is the pastor of the Memorial Presbyterian Church, of Newark, N. J. He i not an evangelist, though he has made several trips away from New York to assist Mr. Chapman and other evangelists In places where they were holding union meetings. He arrived In this city last Tuesday and will remain till next Tuesday, when he will return to his charge. He is a great believer In union evangelical meetings. The meeting in the central locality, he says, always draws a crowd and generally brings a few people who have not and would not have attended any of the denominational meetings. He expressed himself as very much pleased with the reception given him in this city and was confident the series of meetings will result in the accomplishment of a great deal of good. RAILROADS' STRIKE RILLS. Adjntant-Gencrnl Robbing Thinks They Are Exorbitant. The charge made by the Evansvllle & Terre Haute railroad against the State for carrying troops to the scene of 'the riots last summer is $1 for every mile traveled by the special trains and 1 cent a mile for every soldier on the regular trains, and $2,031 for the fourten coaches and three baggage cars, used at the request of the railroad company, for the transportation of the troops up and down the line in Sullivan county for seventeen days during the time of the riots. The request was made because there was constant apprehension of attacks on the trains, and several times dynamite was found on the track's, and eome cars were burned. The train was tendered to General McKee to facilitate the. protection of the company's own prop erty. This bill of expense y still a matter of correspondence between the officers of the road and the Adjutant-general. The factn will be laid before the Legislature when the bill for an appropriation is before it for consideration. The Louisville. Evansvllle & St. Louis road ent in, a bill for full rates for transporting the troops, but when lt3 attention was called to the discrimination the bill was corrected and made to read 1 cent a mile for each pas senger. The Nickel Plate also made the same low rate after Its attention was called to the facts. Adjutant-general Robblns has contracted with the Crocker Uniform Company, of Chicago, for 1,000 overcoats for the use of the militia at $3.33 each. The government charges $13.. for the same overcoat deliv ered, but the State happened to find the manufacturers of the cloth with a large sur ply. which they were anxious to reduce. and the State was thus saved a considerable sum. Four hundred of the overcoats will be received by Chriitmas. They will bo kept, with the tants. In the basement of the btatehouse. Fret flays at Art Exhibit. The Art Association will open free to the publio on Satutday and Sunday, Dec. 8 and 9. the exhibition of the summer work of artists Steele, Forsyth. Gruelle and Stark. Th exhibition is now elng held at C5 East Ohio street in the Denison Hotel building. The excellent orJer which was maintained during the free day last spring at the Propylaeum has encouraged the association to again open its doors. The policy of the association has always been a liberal one. Cruel Treatment of a Fine Horse. William Tamer was fined $25 and costs, yesterday, by Judge Stubbs, for cruelty to animals. The evidence showed that l had been In the habit of driving a fine road horse, owned by J. T. Dunn, occasionally for the purpose of exer;lsing it. Mr. Dunn permitted him to drive the horse not to exceed a half hour at a time, and then only when it had been standing in the stable for a day without exercise. A few days ago, while Mr. Dunn was away from home. Turner took the horse out of the stable early in the morning and did not return it till nearly dark. It was a cold day and when the horse was returned to the stable It was covered with foam, the result of hard driving. Since that time the horse has been stiff and unfit for use. TALK OP THE FUTURE YOUSG REPUBLICANS DISCI SS LKGIS. f LATIVE 1'IIOIILEMS. Sleetlnfir of Young Men from All Parts of the State at the Rates House Last Mh. There was a conference of young Re publicans last night in the club room of the Bates House. It was attended by a number of Republican leaders, who hap pened to be in the city, and had for Its pre siding officer W. H. Saunders, of the Marion Chronicle. The meeting was entirely informal and It took an hour or two for those present to reach a conclusion as to the purpose of the conference. The presiding elder, as the chairman was dubbed, called upon each one present for a short speech. The speeches had no tinge of support of any persons for any position, but clung to the consideration of subjects for legislation. There was a clear consensus of opinion that an apportionment law should be passed, and that It should be made so absolutely fair and impartial that a Democratic Supreme Court would not care to overthrow. It was also clearly a matter of agreement that the Legislature should recognize the party platform obligations In regard to nonpartlsanism in the management of the State institutions, and that the ap pointing power should, as a good principle of government, be lodged with the Governor as the responsible head of the State. The Legislature, it was sugested. might retain a confirmatory power. There was equal unanimity in the opinions regarding the compensation to county officers. Senator Wishard's speech declar ing for a 3ystem founded upon salaries and not fees was mot with general approval. He suggested that the fee and salary committee ought to be given power to send for every county officer in the State to testify under oath as to the business of his county, so that a fair law might be conceived upon a basis net only of popula tion,, but or business done. The Demo cratic principle in the present law, which made the salaries liberal in Democratic counties and sawed the meat in Republican counties, as a means of breaking up the organization of the opposing party, was strongly condemned as unworthy a party of patriotic and fair-minded men, and as a contemptible species of class legislation that only a small-bore class of legislative demagogues could perpetrate. The confer ence pleaded for conservatism In all mat ters and for as little legislation as rossi- ble to restore the equality of all before the law. The subject of good roads, however. had some advocates present who though!; better roads would bring to the State a greater measure of prosperity than all the natural gas that has been used, to gether with the $23,003,000 worth that has been wasted. There were present the following persons: J. Frank Hanly, member-elect of Congress in the Ninth district; James E. Wat son, member-elect of Congress in the Fourth district; C. B. Landis, of Delphi; W. K. Landis. of this city: Senator Wish- ard, W. 11. Leedy, J. F. Stutesman, of rem; w. l. Taylor, Indianapolis; R. A. Brown, of Franklin; R. B. Oglesbee, of. Plymouth; J. C. Ochiltree, Marion; J. F. Johnston. R. D. Pratt, Q. A. Myers and E. B. McConnell, all of Logansport; Fremont Goodwin, of Fountain county; Ambrose Moore, of Warren' county: Mayor Von Behren, of Marion; Sherman King, of uaDasn; x u. JUerntt, or Lagrange county; S. E. Nicholson, of Kokomo, and others. Many of those present were Republicans who happened to be In the city and were Invited to attend. There needed no other password to the meeting than to be known as a Republican. Other meetings of the same kind for general party conference were suggested, and the suggestion met witn favor. It was a general sentiment. toward the close, that the meeting had been helpful to those present, and the quandary as to purpose at the beginning naa oeen removea. CARLISLE'S FINANCIAL PLAN. Allen M. Fletcher Thinks It Given One Man Too 3Inch Power. Allen M. Fletcher, In speaking of Secre tary Carlisle's financial plan, vesterdav. expressed the opinion that It was faulty. in many important points. He did not like the provision for the repeal of the statute which now requires all national banks to keep on hand 'a large portion of their deposits as a reserve fund. He thought that would encourage loose banking. The provision making the Secretary of the Treasury the sole Judge of when a State banking .institution shall be permit- lea to issue circulating notes,, ne said, vests too much power in one man. It makes that man the absolute czar of the commercial Wnrld. SO far a thl lYllltltrv la r-knram Continuing, he said that under such a law the Secretary of the Treasury would hold thf fMirrencv of thA rnnntrv tr Vila hand and would be able to cause a panic at uny time by a single stroke of the pen. He characterized the scheme as elasticity in lis wuutjst euse. Dedication of Hyde Park Church. The dedication services of the new edifice of the Hyde Park M. E.
