THE D E C A T U R R E V I E W Page Thirteen WORK FOR WEEK ORH Millwork and Other Finishing On New Hospital. §43,000 IN PLEDGES Already Spent; Balance Still Owed on Land. Work will b« cirrled on *t the Do- eatur »nd iSacon County hospital tor a week or two longer. There is some work that cannot be stopped, such as p u t t i n g I n place millwork and other finishing l u m b e r t h a t w i - . i i S d - K · : ' · ' u. c o n d i t i o n IE allowed to lie unused. It l» expected that all of this will be taken care of In a few diy». however, · nd then th« b u i l d i n g will be boarded ur «nd n o t h i n g mor» will be done until Inure money Is available-. There are good pledges to the ·mount of about HS.OOO. This has keen a n t i c i p a t e d , however, by contracts already made and largely carried out. BALANCE ON LAND. One of t h p Items of Indebtedness Is $24.000 u n p a i d on the land. This is not included in the list of Indebtedness to fee covered by the pledget, but Is In · ddttion to that. However, the hos- p i t a l association has ten acres that are to be divided Into lots and sold. It is expected that the receipts from lot Bales will pay off the balance owed on the land. When that ten acres la Bold the hospital w i l l still have thirty acres In the (rounds. The expectation Is that the lots will rot be sold for dome time. The association feels that th«y are Increasing In value and that it will be b e t t e r to hold them as long a* possible. Tl.or* will be a sale for them as there are often I n q u i r i e s about t h e m . NO PLANS. N o t h i n g can be said at this time as to plans for r a i s i n g the deficit, about $*o.oo(, as previously stated. The directors have no plans for raising that · urn. They feel that they nave can- vasied the city and In part the county. They are undecided Just w h e r e to be- §r!n. They are told by the putm-: tliat there Is a desire to have the b u i l d i n g completed and put i n t o but t h e y do not k n o w how they can do It- They would be glad to have suggestions or ·salntance. 5T UPPEIIL Long Creek Men Put Matter Up to Hicks.

OUR CITY ··For I Am · Cltlxen ol No Mean City." Decatur has a- better class, of public officials than most cities of Its size. This statement is not made unthought- edly, in a desire to give the city a boost, without much regard , to the facts. It Is made after Inquiry of some of our business men who In the last few months have had- occasion to visit and meet the officials In other cities. In speaking of public officials our township and county officials are Included as well as those In city offices. Our public officials are above the average in Intelligence, in attention to t h e duties of their offices, and in consideration for the public. Of course t h e r e may be some who would not be described In this way, but compared w i t h other cities our public officials are much better than men In similar positions. There Is not an office in Decatur that Is not open to the public at all reasonable hours and in which all reasonable attention Is not given to any visitor. More than that, pains are taken to please and serve the p u b - lic. Investigations are made, questions are answered, the ignorant and u n i n f o r m e d are met with patience and courtesy. Arrogance and indifference to the wishes of the public used to be the r u l e with public officials, except where it was k n o w n that the individuals act u a l l y concerned controlled votes. It is that way now In some cities, as Decatur business men can testify. It is not so In Decatur. Present Evidence to the U. S. Commission. People You Know Mrs. Earnest R'c« ami daughter, Bel«n, of Latham, have ,cen visiting In Vecati:r the past two days. Mrs. W i l l i a m Siables of Bethany.

They will return Sunday even- Mr, and Mrs. Joe Cassell and on, · John, of Camp Point, are guests of Mrs. W»lt«r Thomas. 170S North QuUok. That the labor troubles which have been experienced by the shop employes on the Illinois Central and Harriman lints for the past thirty-three months are fast coming to a head is Indicated by o f f i c i a l word received in Decatur f r o m labor leaders In Chicago. Local r a i l r o a d men are greatly Interested in the fitrlit w h i c h the I. C. employes have b(i-n m a k i n g and are in sympathy with them. Men here say that employes were forced out of work by the roads because they attempted to organize a labor u n i o n which would embrace all bhop workers. WHAT THEY CLAIM. The latest developments In the case, w h i c h has dragged for nearly three years w h i l e the workers were forced to e n t e r some other employment or starve, has been made by nine leaders if i n t e r n a t i o n a l crafts associations on the- I. C. and Harriman lines. They met \Vednesday a f t e r n o o n to prepare evidence w h i c h t h e y say will be used to show the U n i t e d States Commission on I n d u s t r i a l Relations that the condi- t i o n s have not been those of a strike iis c l a i m e d by the railroads, but have been a lockout in w h i c h the men have had n e i t h e r the chance to work nor to tie-end t h e i r position. There are 35,000 r.'en i n v o l v e d on the two systems, many of whom were employed on the local d i v i s i o n s of the I l l i n o i s Central in shops Ir. Clinton and elsewhere. Attorney Comerford of Chicago has been selected by the Railroad Employes d e p a r t m e n t of the American Federation of Labor to present the grievances of the men and prepare the records and evidence to submit to the United States body, TV-HAT OFFICIALS SAT. Durintr all of the roads trouble, officials on the Illinois Central who have been connected with the local divisions have contended that there was no labor unrest on the road, that the men nearly three years ago walked out and that new men were secured to keep the road r u n n i n g . Many of the employes who ar w o r k i n g in Decatur shops are men xvho had to leave their positions In Clinton or at points on the Illinois Central system when the trouble arose and these men are anxiously awaiting the outcome of the proceedings. MISS SCHUERMAN" TO TAKE VEIL Mrs. L. Schuerman and son, Frank, and daughters. Misses Frances and Anna Schuerman, and Miss Frances Homoelle, went to St. Louis Wednesday tn see Miss Ellrabeth Schuerman tak the veil at St. Anthony's convent. STEA~MER~ ASHORE NEAR MONTREAL Montreal, July 2.--The Canadian Pacific railway steamer Assiniboia, with 100 passengers aboard, went ashore early today at Bad Neighbor shoals, Cove Island harbor, Georgian oay. News of the grounding reached the offices of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph company here from the radio station at Sault Ste. Marie, Mont. The steamer Manitoba was called to the assistance of the stranded vessel. although It was said she was In no danger. The Assiniboia was bound from Sault Ste. Marie to Port McNlcoI. ke Chief Allen, Shade and Carey as Teachers. MUST REMOVE SIGNS No Firecracers To Be Shot Off in Streets. Chief of Police Allen called all the officers Into headquarters Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock and called their attention to some of the ordinances. W. Carey, corporation counsel, and Commissioner W. P. Shade were also present. NO HUMANE OFFICER. Chief Allen called the attention of the men to the fact that since the city had decided to do without the services of a h u m a n e officer, each member of the department had the same powers as those possessed by a regular humane officer and that each should be on the alert to -arrest any one violating the provisions of the laws referring to cruelty .to animals. He also called their attention to the provisions of the fireworks ordinance, and told each officer to Insist on every provision of that ordinance being obeyed to the letter. In substance and summed up altogether the o r d i n a n c e prohibits any person from exploding fireworks except In his own yard. NONE IN STREET. Any one who throws firecrackers, torpedoes, etc., into the street is liable to arrest, as well as those placing caps on the street car tracks. It will be an easy matter to avoid arrest by keeping the fireworks on your own premises. MUST REMOVE SIGNS. Corporation Counsel Carey explained the different sections of the local option license, and Chief Allen and Commissoner Shade tola the officers to do their utmost to apprehend and arrest any and all persons selling intoxicating liquors; that they must keep a close watch on buildings where they have reason to believe that the law is being violated. The men are i n s t r u c t e d to see that all saloon signs are removed from buildings, and that all signs advertising the sale of liquor must be removed from buildings, awnings, etc. . There are several signs still on buildings where there w e r e saloons, t h o u g h most of them have been removed. If they are not removed w i t h i n a reasonable time the owners will be prosecuted. Such signs are a violation of the law. WATCH THE CLUBS. The police were i n s t r u c t e d to keep tab on the new clubs being started in the city and arrest the people in charge if there -was any evidence that the law was being violated. They are also instructed to w a t c h the d r a y m e n and expressmen. Chief Allen has been told that an a g e n t has been g e t t i n g beer shipped hr-re by the carload and delivering it to patrons the same as before the saloons went o u t ; that the goods were all shipped in his name. This makes the drayman liable as well as the agent. WHAT ALLEX SAYS. '·We are going to prevent the sale of i n t o x i c a t i n g l i q u o r in D e c a t u r if we possibly can," said Chief Allen. "We may not be able to prevent it entirely, but we will do the best we possbly can. If the juries who hear the cases will do their d u t y t h e r e will be a n u m b e r of convictions." LESS EUGENICS AND MORE LOVE Atlantic City, X. J.. July 2.--Less eusenics and more old-fashioned love, Is what the race needs, said Dr. J. Richey Horner, of the Cleveland Homeopathic Medical college, who read a paper on sex hygiene today before the bureau of sanitary science of the American Institute ot Homeopathy. Dr. Horner said It was his belief that as long as man was attracted by beauty and women by strength, eugenics would in a great measure take care of itself. KING'S HORSE RUNS SECOND Newmarket, Eng., July 2.--Lord Cadogn't The Curragh today won the Princess of Wales stakes of flO.OOO for three and four year old over * distance of a mile and a half. The King's Brakespear was second and Colonel Walker Hall's Wh!t»- Prophet third. Six ran. Post DUpatch--Judge--What Is your er*. madam? Witness--Twenty-seven and some months. Judge--I want your, exact age. How many months? Witness--One hundred and twenty. MILE IS HARDEST RACE TO RUN The mile run is perhaps the hardest of all track feats to perform properly, In the j u d g m e n t of "William Hayward, the veteran trainer of Oregon univer- city athletes. Training for the mile, he says, should be a pastime and not work; the moment it becomes work he advises a. stop. ' "At this point It is injuring instead of helping the athlete," he says. Here Is Kay ward's prescription for a week of ordinary training for mile runners on a university squad: "Monday--Run a mile, the first 440 at good speed, the remainder at a Jog, except the last 100 yards, which should be clone in a. sprint; after a rest, take a few sprints of sixty or seventy yards each, then finish with a slow half mile. "Tuesday--Run 660 yards at racing speed, jog a half mile, then tak a few short, sprints. "Wednesday--Take several short sprints, jog three-quarters of a mile and do a fast 440. "Thursday--Do a Tnlle and a half, with the first 660 at racing speed and the remainder at Jog, except for a final 100-yard sprint. "Friday--Take several short sprints, do CCO at the mile pace, rest and then jog a three-quarters. If a meet Is to be held Saturday, omit the 660 and the three-quarters Jog on Friday." The mller must, of course, have endurance as well as speed, so Hayward tells the men not to pay too much attention to their legs, but to develop the upper body .as well. The runner must run on the balls of his feet and must not overstrlde In trying to gain ground. The body should be carried a little forward, with the arms swinging at the sides. Every muscle should do its part. "Do not expect too much the first year," say* th« veteran trainer. Local Notices. Tbw* Notice* » Paid AdnrtMns. BUFFALO AND CARP At Barr's, 352 N. Main.

Bennett Makes Inquiry of Council. ' John L. B e n n e t t was before the city council Thursday morning to see what they would do to prevent keeping the streets blocked up so badly with b u i l d i n g materials as they are now. Mr. B e n n e t t said he was not making jomplaint against anyone in particular and that he was glad to see the building but that Decatur was getting in the class of larger cities now and in larger cities, or many of them, building contractors did not occupy any of the streets or sidewalks; they do all their b u i l d i n g from the inside. CAN* rSE THIRD. Attorney Baldwin read that section of the b u i l d i n g ordinance relative to occupancy of streets and it provided cue-third of the street might be used. J!r. Bennett believed that was too much and cited cases where half of the street was being used. The mayor a g r e e d with Mr. Bennett and the council decided to look into this matter and stop it as m u c h as possible. STEPS IN FRONT OF INTERURBAN; KILLED William E. Everts, Aged Vlrden Heel- dent, Lanes Life. Yirden, 111.. Juls- 2.--William E. Everts, f a t h e r of J. W. Everts, cashier of t h e - S t a t e Bank of Virden, was struck by an t n t e r u r b a n car while crossing the tracks at the Illinois Traction system station about 9 o'clock yesterday morning-, receiving i n j u r i e s from which he died at his home at 11:50 o'clock. Mr. Everts, who is eighty-seven years old and slightly hard of hearing did not notice that the express crew of the interurban were switching some cars of freight and stepped directly before the cars. The conductor called to him to look out but was unable to attract his attention, the car dragging him several feet before the cars could be stopped. "Yes It Is!" "No Its Not!" "You're 'nother!" 400 JAPS COMING TO MICHIGAN Announcement Scare* Leaders Who Plan Anti-Allen Land Law. Lansing, Mich.. July 2.--The announcement that 400 Japanese laborers from California are coming to settle in Alger county, this state, has started anti-alien land law agitation here and it is reported an attempt will be made at the next session of the state legislature to enact an anti-alien law, similar to the one in California. The Japenese will engage in vegetable f a r m i n g when they arrive In Algrer county. Washington, July 2.--Prosperity and depression were pictured In another senate debate today. Republicans cited instances of industrial dullness, while Democrats asserted that business conditions were better in the United States than anywhere else in the world. Senator Simmons started the argument when he quoted the official treasury figures, showing a surplus for the fiscal year just ended. "The treasury may be In a satisfactory condition," Interjected Senator Galllnger, Republican, "but the Industries of the country certainly are not." LOST HUGE CONTRACT. He then read from letters saying a New Hampshire shoe manufacturer had lost a $2000,000 yearly contract with a. Baltimore customer who found he comd buy shoes cheaper in England under the new tariff law. Senator Gallinser alao presented correspondence to show that the wool manufacturing Industry in New Hampshire had. fallen off. Senator Hollis, Democrat, replied that a personal investigation in New Hampshire had convinced him that labor was better employed there than It ever had been before. Senator Marline, Democrat, asserted that a sewing machine plant in New Jersey, ·which usually closes down for a month in the summer had this year been unable to close for more than a week.

Shelbyville, July 2.--Deputy Sheriff Mack Davis, who made a tour of the northern part of Shelby county on official business Tuesday, reports that he never before saw the farmers as busy as they were that day.

Todd's Point. Penn, Moweaqua, Fiat Branch and Pickaway townships, and observed the crop conditions, which he says are very promising. The wheat is turning out an average of twenty-five bushels to the acre., and the prospects for a b u m p e r corn crop are good. Similar reports come from the east- frn p a r t of the county, where the corn is especially good and wheat is yielding over thirty bushels to the acre in some fields, according to the soil. AT CLARKSBURG. J. K. Hoagland, who deals in grain at Clarksburg, reports that wheat in that section of the county is yielding all the way from five to thirty bushels to the acre, according to the soil and its condition.

Chicago, July 2.--Reports of black rust In South Dakota and of other damage northwest by excessive moisture forced wheat speculators today to the b u y i n g side. Wet weather causlns delay to threshing southwest counted also against the bears and so did strength at Liverpool based on fears of trouble between Austria and Servte. Th« opening, which was unchanged to %o higher, was followed by an additional upturn. Crop damage advices from Hungary and Russia helped the advance but some reaction ensued because ot fine weather reports. The close was firm at l @ l ^ c to l',4c above, last night. Showers over the Ohio valley and other districts where there has been complaint of drouth eased off the corn market. Prices rallied however, in sympathy with wheat. After starting unchanged to 'Ac lower and suffering a further decline, values rallied to nearly last night's level. Renewed weakness came about In consequence of reports of the grading system here being relaxed. The close, nevertheless, was firm at exactly the same as last night. Oats were governed by the action of corn. Commission houses did most of the selling. High prices for hogs tended to lift provisions. i 15 Crop Ranges from Fifteen to Thirty Bushels. Wheat threshing Is on In portions of Macon county. Near Elwin several patches have already been threshed and the crop ranges there from fifteen to twenty bushels an acre. One patch belonging to D. E. Peterson brought thirty-two bushels an acre, but he had only three acres of this. Another patch of about twenty acres belonging to Mike Siehr near Elwin brought twenty-two bushels. Near Harrlstown, no wheat has been threshed yet. but it Is thought that the bundles will be dry enough from Wednesday morning's rain to start threshing out that way. about Thursday. Most other parts of the county will be ready the latter part of this week and the first part of next as practically all the wheat Is cut. So far, there are no reports of any oats being cut yet and In many fields seen right around close to town, they appear to be far too green yet. STOCK MARKET EXTREMELY DULL New York, July 2.--The dullness of the early session was accentuate.! by the fact that no transactions in such important issues as Great Northern, Canadian Pacific, Baltimore * Ohio and Pennsylvania were recorded during the first hour.

Although it was asserted that Mr. Morgan's meeting with the president had no connection with N'ew Haven affairs, that stock soon dropped to the lowest record In history, namely, 63H. Announcement at the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton receivership was received with expressions of relief. Bonds were irregular. GRAIN. Chicago Cash Market.
