Gates aald if ba wr In our - om jny ha could see that w got the entire aWplng appropriation, ajid more, if wa ataadad It. ' i - 'uehiing aald he pointed out to Gates that he anJ Furnas might swindle him undr such an arrangamant.' but Gate Fattnd him on, tha back, aad aald: ."My rlend, 1 trust you with everything, and you need truat ma with nothing. What mora can Z do?" ''."Gates told Wi," said Fuehring. "that he waa going to the IlufTalo bowling tournament with Xfookwalter that week, and ha 'Wanted to - k now ur ajiawr ao he could talk tha matter over with liook waiter on tha trip.", , i . Fuehrtng aald he told Gates that what ha wanted could not be done, and Fur - naa thouthC so. too. Ha aald Gate wanted to take a one - fourth interest in the romj.any and - waa wllHng to put tha money in. 11a said there waa no aug - geation that be knew of that Gates ahould be jaii a salary, of (3.aj a year or any nei amouuL Furnas did not ear In bis hearing, .he aald. that he would rather pay Oatea a fixed amount. Fuehring aald he never went with Gataa to seer Alfred MMdleton. Logston's broth - er - ln - Uw. He did not know Mlddleton at that tuna, bat Furnas bad alaca pointed hln o jt. Ia and Kumaa. he aald. . were not conxldering taking Mlddleton in aa a partner. He said he could not do that anJ lKk Ptuckmayer In tha facf. ; He said he and Furnas would have : kept Ptuckrn)er with J hem If they ha. got the contract thla year. ,.' Thought Gates waa in Company. Fuehring aald that when the Marion County Construction Company bid on and got the contract thla year he suspected that Gatea waa in the company. Fuehrtng had sold his equipment to George Belbert. who bid for tha Marlon County Construction Company. Whan he asked Belbert for hta money, Hubert told him to wait until the neat Friday at 8 o'clock, when hla "moneyed man would be home. Just to see If his suspicion was correct. Fuehring had Furnas call up Harry Gatea. He got the reply that Gatea waa out of tha t - lty, and wofald be borne the neat Friday at S o'clock. Mr. Noel got from the wltneaa a maaa of matertul relating - to the method of letting sweeping contracts In tha paat. the amount of work that can be dona by on st agon, tit prices In each year, etc. Thla Information, he aald. he propoa - ed to use later on. Mr. Fuehrtng aald that In IKS Oraree and Jouea got the contract away from htm and Furnas by underbidding them, but In 1K9 he and Furoe got It back. He aid be always felt that the Tasrgart administration made a mistake In letting them hava the contract that year, for they were practically fined out of the bual - !. 'Tagxart wanted Graves and Jones to have the contract, ha aald. He aatd the f, nea in were asseased notwithstanding tha fact that. In that year tha city got the bt sweeping it has eret had before or since. He and Furuaa loat mouey that jrear. LetxStuckmeyr Bid It In. In 19n0 and l?01 he and Furnas got the contract by letting. Charlee Btuckmeyer. a friend of the administration, bid It in. They were not afraid of heavy fines while Ptuckmeyer held the contract. 1 The arrangement with Btuckmeyer was that ha waa to bid In the .contract if he could gat It at lVcenta. and Fur naa and Fuehrtng would do the work for IT cents, giving Stuckmeyer profit of av cent and a quarter. Stuckmeyera profit from thla ouroe. ha said, was .i or a year. Ptuckmeyer earned hla money, the wlt - neaa vli. by watching everything closely, making the reports to the board, watching tha hands, drawing tha money, etc. . Fuehrtr.g said a part of the profit ef the contracore. consltd of ftften cent a man for day laborere. Th city allowed the contractor 11 36 a man. and thy hired their labor for XI Out of this proflt. however, they had to buy toola for tha men.. On hla third of the work ha had about forty - of the men. making a profit In this way of'$l.. a year. Mr. Noel figures that the profit on the hoie contract from thla aource waa about H0. ehrlug aald the cemt raxtors docked their men for rainy la. aa no aweping aa rtne. He eal I the contractors drew o money for raloy' daya, anJ o got no prof. I from this source.

Hut Fuehring said he entertained no feeling except one of kindness for Pjogsdon. Mr. Ketchara atao made much of tha fact that when Kennington made his corrupt' proposals to Fuehring. Fuehring did not go to Logsdon and tell him that Kennington waa Implying that Iosrsdon waa a "damn - ecouudrel"; and that Fuehring did not tell Kennington that he waa a "damn acoundrel." or to "go to h I." ' The wltneaa aald he did not consider it hla business to do this. Because They Were Corrupt. He had turned down the proposals, ha said, because they were , corrupt, and he thought his duty ended there. If a man Intended to do work for city officers.; he aald. ha must keep Quiet. lie finally admitted that at one time be did say something strong to Kennington. "but." he said, with a glance at the lady etenographer. "I would rather not repeat It here." Fuehring denied having a conversation on the street car with Lee Fulmer, and aaylng to him that he had no dealings with Kennlnsrton thla year because : he considered Kennington tricky.

No objection waa raised to any question. j Before the opening of I the session the committee and the attorneys talked informally of tha scop of - the investigation. Mr. Logsdon'e attorneys were inclined to think that the sweeping contracts were not properly under - Investigation, but Chairman ynne thought they were. Mr. Noel aaid th committee being a standing committee on investigation and Impeachment, had the power to Investigate anything It wished without special Instruction from the. Council. He aatd that later on he expected to go into aome matters that had nothing W hatever to do with Iogadon. The committee will meet again next Monday night. . COLLECTED ON RAINY DAYS. It Appears that Contractor Were Paid - rfor Day Men All Season. The record In the Board of Works office ahow that certain sweeping contractors collected pay from the city for day laborer and tea ma practically every day during the aweeptng ' season. This necessarily shows that the city' paid for day I men on rainy days as on ah other. From one to four men were always paid for on Sunday. - the explanation being that these, men were ' employed ia the streets about tha market house, aa market closed too late on Saturday nights to allow the .atreets to be cleaned before Sunday. - This same system prevail un - - Qon to several launches and row boats der the Marlon County Construction Company's contract.

CAIIOEIilG WILL BE A POPULAR FAD The Women Are Taking to the Sport as a Pleasant Pastime. CANOE CLUB'S ARRANGEMENT An Additional Floating Dock Haa Been Launched to Meet the General Demand. That canoeing la a coming fad. not only among men but women. Is evident from the success &hat haa attended the Canoe Club, since its organisation three - yeara ago. The flats of fashion fix the fade and in some mysterious manner fha canoeing fad ha slipped in. ' In many part of the country (and it 1 not Improbable that Indianapolis wllf follow suit), canoeing Is dividing the honors with golf as a leading outdoor sport with both aexea. This water sport has developed Into a, craze among the member of the Canoe Club, whose home, a structure of architectural beauty, lies opposite the main entrance to Riverside Park. Easy of access,' and with a stretch of water which abounds in fine scenery for many miles, this club is taking Its place among, the foremost country clubs of the country. The demand for canoe is smother Indication of the popularity of the pleasant sport of canoeing. A floating covered dock used as a canoe house with facilities for fifty canoe, was found inadequate, and this week the club launched another dock coating SI. 100 with facilities for 100 more canoes. Nearly all the spaces have been asked for, showing that the club's fleet this year will exceed 100 canoes, in addl - AVhen TIrexI Out Take Ilorsford'a Acid Phosphate. It vitalises the nerves, assists the digestion, refreshes and Invigorates the entire body. A ,Tonlc that . permanently benefit. Women Are Interested. This sport among women la encouraged by the club. Already the women are taking part in the discussions over the respective merits of the canvas and cedar canoes, the difference between the decked and open canoes, ami the double and single paddles. Canoeing' especially appeals to women, because they are able' to present an attractive appearance when dressed appropriately for the pastime. If she can learn to get ' Into a canoe gracefully and handle a paddle adlen - tlficaMy sho Is the master of the sport. She acquires an ease while mastering these requisites. The sport is a safe lone as It ha been shown that all accldients have been due to gross care'.essnesi or recklessness. Canoeing is within reach of the city home and ' the person who enjoys indulgence in this pastime can r usually find an hour or two every day during. the - warm monua w taae vp me sport. - The type of the canoe that Is most popular, where It is a question of its use by women, although ther Is a tendency to ttii; - . na distinction between the caoo I uss - d by women and that by men. Is from Mxseen to twenty ii m le - usjio. wenni from forty to sixty pounds, and ciu. eouipped with paddlea. from to JTS - iTh Idea In desisturg is the least possible weight compatible with the neceaaary strength. The canvas canoe Is favored by nearly all the iovers of the sport - in Indiana polls. Th canvaa is stretched over a light and strong framework and la painted and polished until the cloth is as hard as flint. j . - River Broad and Deep. The stretch of water at the disposal of the members of the Canoe Club extend from the Riverside Park dam. near Km - richsville, to Broad Ripple, a distance of about ten miles. For four mile above the dam the river la broad and deep and the banks are covered In' summer with a luxurious foliage from a network of trees and vines. Islands, varying - la else from a few - feet to several acres, mark the rlyer'a surface. High bluff at different points mark its course. . The roost delightful canoe excursion 'Indulged In by members cf the club is a trip to Broad Ripple and return.. The. up trip Is made by way of the canal. Canoes are carried from the river to the canal at the Golden Hill springs, a distance of a few "block north of the clubhouse. At this point th river and canal are not more than fifty feet apart. At Broad Ripple the canoe are carried from the canal into the river, and 7 the delightful trip down the winding stream follows. No more beautiful trio can be found than this one. The round trip requires about five hours. Canoeing has made the Canoe Club a success. The club owns, free of Incumbrance, one of the finest country clubhouses In the "West. The structure cost about (10,000, and with the bathhouses and boathouse. the property is estimated to be worth S3.000 In excess of this amount. The membership Is nearly 900. The golf link In Riverside Park, Just across the river. Is one of the chief attractions for the club - member. . Bathing Is another srpoft greatly enjoyed. There 1 a toboggan chute, 130 feet In length from an elevation of fifty - seven feet, that proved one of the attractions for Riverside Park last summer. Frequently hundreds of people would assemble on the bank opposite the clubhouse to watch the bathers come down the chute with lightning speed and tumble Into the clear water with a splash that would bide them from view. The members of the Canoe Club declare their venture a great success. TL;TTT?TO)jO)W. , Tf f TIT) n I ' FT) (TT) W 0 T !) r? " AXx" j : i Dont put off coming to see us a moment longer.

Ex - Senator William Lindsay, of Kentucky, a close friend of G rover Cleveland, Is in the city. When asked regarding Cleveland's candidacy. Senator Lindsay said: "If the Democrats could elect anybody, Mr. Cleveland would be the man. but I do not expect to 'see him at the bead of the ticket. I witnessed the gi tit demonstration for him In St. Louis the other day, and know how greatly the ovation pleas ed him. Mr. Cleveland has had the re - ij markable experience of living to see all' the obloquy put ?upon .him removed. Ills greatness is appreciated - tty - Ca.T by the whole country. ; - "l should like to see the Democrats sagacious enough to pick out as strong a man In 1904 as George: Gray, of' Delaware, He would probably be beaten, but he would emerge from the battle with honor, and the party would be In good condition for the next contest. If the Democrats could get together on a sensible platform, eschewing the - .heresies which have wrecked the organisation, they wonld prove themselves worthy of a party that has had a glorious history and which may yet guide the destinies of the nation." .
