SUNDAY, iSTOFK WEIGHING OF ICE \ ^ · -- jsidor Wulfson, as City Sealer, : Will Ask Council for ·Ordinance. WOULD FIX RESPONSIBILITY Inspector Has Seals Ready for 1912--Recalls Experience of Years in Office. Isldor Wulfson, inspector of weights find measures, who is "slated" to be appointed city sealer of weights and measures the first of the year, will ask tfce ?ity Council within the next few weeks "to pass an ordinance requiring employes -pt ice companies to weigh ice before i»- JiTeries are made to patrons. Under the present ordinance ice companies may %Issue orders that ice b$ placed xm the scales before it is delivered, but there is ,uo ordinance requiring such action. Statistics compiled by Mr, '' Wulfson -irtiow that in 1911 more arrests have be«a .made for "short" weights of ice than for any other commodity. During July and August Mr. Wulfaon: arrested freauently as many as four ice men a day* The records in his office show that in a great many cases the fault was not with the ·pwners, but ^Ity the employe*. Mr. Wulfson says -he knows of several teases vhw t)i« ice companies Issued explicit instructions about weighing ice, but -for gome reason the order was not observed by their employe*. It "will be fo correct this that Mr. Wulfson wilt ask the Cijty Council to enact an ordinance ^holding the men who actually deliver the Ice responsible*. " ' ' WJSHg$ SEVERE PENALTY* If no objections are raised by nigrntzars. of the City Council, Mr. Wulfson plans to have the ordinance provide a severe penalty. ' * * An ordinance es^bHsHing th,* PQsHlpn of city sealer of weights and measures s expected fo ^e acted upon by the City ouncil Wednesday nlgbt. .The position ow held by Mr. Wulfson is abolished by he new state statute, that Mil become Affective ^ftn, 1. -It establishes the position of city sealer of ^eights an| measures. Mr. Wulfson has received a supply of l^y him ice, . 'the new geai£ that will be usecj after the flrst of the year. The seal tiiat wtll '^e used on scales is constructed in such a Jhat it *wiU be almost impossible to ehort weight on the scales. WJien on iplaced InHposltion the s^al can not removed nor can a duplicate be mada easily. Mr. Wmfson belfeves that thin fieal will awlal him very niaterially la bis work. * - ** ' A small seal wiH-be us«4 by the aeato after testing counter scales. Where th« two seals have -been trtefl out, it Ms said; they have £iven Excellent Satisfactidn^^ Mr. Wulfson believes that the dty ^hould have an orjiuan.Q6 UcQpistnf th$ men whq weigh coa} in order to place the responsibility ^het© hs believes Mt pe^- longs.

BLAMES MANY EMPLOYES. ' The inspector is firni in his belief that fmpioye'B \heftiselves ( 'are respdnsible in a 1*reftt many instance for case.8 of "short ·' Veight and measure. He says ttia-t the (employe a great many times becomes ^artless and forgets to guard the interests of his employer. Mafiy c^Sefl 'of that ilnd have been cabled to Jiis ^j;Untion »ince he haa been waging a campaign for full weights an4 measures in Jnlian- ,apoiis, he says. AV Glancing retrospectively back to the time when he first assumed hi^ present position, Mr. Wulfson say* he tosmuch to be merry and happy for thlft ChTiSt- tnas. He is the only member ot th^ cUy idminltration whose Christmas stocking vill contain a nice 'little increase of $Sp() in salary. He now receives $1,200 a year, but as city sealer his salary will tie not less than $1,500 annually. Thejfcfc fixes his salary and the only way that the City Council can shut him 9Ut of the increase ' Is to abolish the position, which does not ·eem probable at this time. Mr. WuUson has mada great headway since he assumed his present position about six years *goy When he first took up hia duties a drygoods box constitutes the only seat in/hi* 1 - office. A table wltb three legs formed th?-vrjting desk. Th.3 walls were birren. There waa no car* »et on the floor and Mr. Wulfson was ^Interrupted frequently In his meditations |y rats and other vermin. HAS COSY OUARTER9 NOW. But time has wrought a big change. Now Mr. Wulfson occupies cosy quarters /In the basement of the City Hail, with an onlce containing some of the best equipment that can be purchased. No * (estimate of the expense for th« equlp- * ment has been kept by Mr. WuKaon, but he haa hazarded a guwwrthat the equipment now in his office cost af least $2,DOu. The, amount of feea for toppsctlqns ftaj likewise increased during ]ils tenure or .office, and his report for the year wiU ' ehow that approximately $15,000 has been collected since he took office. * Mr. Wulfson fa. a Judge of human na* ture. His qtialities in that respect doubt* less may be attributed" to the fact that ! he has been engaged in at least a dozen vocations. He was recently admitted to practice before tlie Marion County Courts and the Supreme Court of Indiana, He gays, with the new state la.w* that becomes effective Jan. 1, he will be able to ' obtain court convictions a great deal *" easier than heretofore, Mr. Wulfson Is. a lovejr of excitement. Many days last summer, before the rays from the morning sun shot across the horizon, 'Mr. Wulfson was snooping about in the residential districts of the city to Bee that* every ice customer got full He admits now that he first got his office as a political reward. But he soya conditions have changed since, and he is a true servant of the public. TOLD TO DRAW CHECKS- '1 asked, whetf I first took office, what tny duties would be/* said Mr, Wulwn, a few days ago, in discussing hi* yrork for the last year, "I was told that \ ihould draw my monthly voucher regularly and say nothing. I was not satis- fled with that kind of a Job. t can not keep a secret to save my life, especially when the welfare" of the pubHcT is involved.

BOOSTERS" TO VI8IT OLD CASTLE ON MEXICAN TRIP Commercial Club Tourists Will inspect Chaputtepec, Whers Americans Fought Qreat Battle in During one of the three days that the Hoosi^r "bqosters," who will make a tou? of Old Mexico with the-Commercial Club in February, are in the City of" they wiU go sightseeing to the most extensive and historfa castle in the western work*. The place and Its environment wiU be of ^especial interest to the delegation from Indiana because many Hoosler soldiers In the Mexican war fought in the battle of Chapultepeift when the place was captured. But the castle is far richer in history and romance When its 'career is traced back to the centuries before- Cor- tea- won the country from the Aztecs. Chapultepec was a royal residency long before the Spanish inva'ded the" coMntr^r in 1619. Every tourist who gofts to 1 the City of Mexico has Chapultepec as the chief point of Interest, and the " * travelers will go* to the place ftp a The castie stands on a I volcanic origin. IF la a vast, tumbling building, resembling 9. huge sanitarium. The present structure, was buHt as a ylpe regal residence and finished ifl l?*5» but it Baa "been changed and enlarged teince that time. Emperor Maximilian had the castle decorated, and also planned the beautiful gardens around the base' of the high' reck. From the oagtle terrace, which looks down upon the 1 drive to th« city, there Is one of the moat magnificent views in the vfoYld. Before v the"eye Is 1 a marvelpus panorama of a great plain studded with towns an'd hamffitsY with th city Itself in the foreground, a»4 ringed around the horizon are the distant hills shrouded In a purple mist. Beyona the 1 hills rise the snow*capped volcanic peaks of Popo- catepetl and Ixtaceihauti. Mexico City is on a mountain, with the castle still higher, and one dan stand on the parapet of the 'castle £nd see Uie clouds'; 'and 'sometimes' a rainstorm, moy- "IR far below. " ' " Near a, s,tope pqpl is a. monument erect* ed to the memory of the youthful soldiers who defended the castle against the Americans on Sept. 13, 1847. Scaling the high rock and parapet around tye cftstie., in the face of the Meiican fire, was one of the bravest deeda performed by the* American army during the Mexican war. The forces from the united' States dafc- tured* four JtfexJcan' gefteYals; "100 other officers and abdxtt 300 sol'dler*. The number of inquiries, 'received by the Commercial Club sh6ws that many cities and town.8, of the atafe are interested in the trip.
