That officer upon being called upon to lock over tbe gang was not able to recognize »ny of the crowd as tbe fellows who shot at him at such dangerously close range Wednesday night. That he had a narrow call during the lively fussllade was dem onitrated yesterday when upon look- Ing over his unifo-m he found that a bullet had mashed the second button of his coat. This was indeed a narrow escape: The second button of a coat represents on the body which it covers » very vital spot, the perfora- tlon of which by cold lead in not at any stage a desirable thing. As the matter stands Policeman Beker Is con- elf thai he is allre to his exciting brush >dnesd»y night THE DEER CUEEK II RIDGE It Proven lobe »• B«d B MeaJ an the tell Tho Journal regrets to see the the County Commissioners and the Auditor mixed up in such quostiona blu transactions as the Davis bridge swindle and the Jackson township bridge juggle. Last Saturday tho Commissioners notified some of the local contractors tbat they would receive bids on the stone work for a bridge over Deer Creek in Jackson township. The specifications called for oolitic stone and on those specifications August Sieltz was^the lowest bidder by $2 per yard. About the time the bids were to be opened Mr. Gleltz heard that the Commissioners would accept outside bids, and calling at the office asked Auditor Helvlo if this was true. ••Yes, that Is so," replied the Auditor, None of tie other bidders heard anything of it but Mr. Gloltx asked what they were figuring on and was told that they were figuring on Williams port sand stono. He put in a bid on that sandstone at $9.76 par yard, itone to run from 10 to 20 inches in thickness. This is the only proper sixe for sandstone in work of that kind as everybody knows. The Pan Handle Company will not allow a stone of any kind over 24 Inches in its work. When the bids were opened Mr. Gloit}'. was called in and asked if he would, uso stone 16 to 30 Inches for tbe same figure. Ho replied, "Ol course, I will," and wrote on his bid that agreement. Anybody that knows anything about stonework knows tbat that is too large a sandstone to use in work of that character. He also knows tbat stone of that slae oan be handled and put in about 50 cents per yard cheaper than the 10 to 20 stone on account of the way it counts up. The Commissioners did not call for new bids, but at the last moment accepted an outside bic for a different kind of stone and gave tho contract to the outside man over the bid of a home man. The • •outside man" was the man employed to act as engineer in ibe examination of the bridge bids who gave the bridge to tho Lafayette Bridge Compan/ The tirm quarrying tbe Williamsport stone usually furnishes tbe bond for the Lafayette bridge company. It was the worst kind of a deal, and the Commissioners cannot clear their skirts by any such lame excuse as the Pharos publishes. Mr. Gleitz ohaU lenged the Pharos to publish his bid complete and the facts. Lovely, is what they all say, of the new shades of kid gloves.

The Journal suppresses nothing. Facts arts fuels and as euch arc given to tbe public. When there was plenty of £af> the Pharos suppressed iho fact and attempted to create the .repression tbat gas bad given out. The Journal slated factn. Tho Pharos now accuses the Journal of suppressing facts in tho interest of a democratic council. Why should it? Echo answers "why?" The Pharos says: It Is said tho Journal has a report covering tbe past nine months and that it refuses to publish it. Tho Journal does not know of any aw requiring a nine-months report. The law requires monthly reports and an annual report May first, of each year. But them tuny have been such a report. Who knowt? Wednesday evening the clerk made two reports, a report for January and another report. Tho records failed to showrepoits for October, November and December and these reports will probably be made. The other report, possibly it was a nine month* report, new departure, wae duly made. Whatever it was it was fiiven to tho Journal reporter and taken from him jy Chairman Dolan of tho Finance Committee to whom it had been referred. Chairman Dolan is a democrat Ho was appointed chairman of tho Finance Committee by Mayor Koad, a democrat. He took tbe report. He bald ' 'I know of no law calling for nine months report. This report vague and indefinite. The Finance committee will at once examine tho Clerk's books and make a full report up to date, that' the people may know what bas boon done. We have nothing to conceal. We will make a full itemized report showing the orders that have been issued, whether fraudulent or otherwise, and the reasons for issuing them. We ask a calm, businesslike consideration of our administration. Councilman Dolan last evening asked tho publication of the follow, ing: STATEMENT. The Clerk's report which was sub. milted last Wednesday night to the Council and which was referred to the Finance Committee for examination bas not been published on account ol the expenses not being properly and specifically set down In the manner they should be, whereby every department would show the money ex pended by it, instead of being com piled together and inadequate. The Finance Committee withheld its publication for a few days until it could have time to examine the books and make a report that would show the money expended In each department separately. This is the reason the report was not published, although the proper time for publication of annual report would be May 1, 1894, which would be the ending of the fiscal year. The monthly reports should be made regularly by the Clerk and Treasurer every month. The present officers have been very dllliirent indoiug BO, and if omissions have been made they have been made without any serious damnge to anyone, as it IB tbe duty of tbeFlnarce Committee to make a report annually about tbe 1st of May. of the conditions of the treasury and outlay for tho year ending- May 1, when all tho monthly nccounts are compared with tbe annual.

About 11 o'clock yesterday the efforts of the lawyers in the interesting criminal case of the State of Indi- nna vs. Augusta Schmidt on trial in the circuit court at Kokomo succeeded in making out a jury to try the case. This jury was not .secured, however, until after the special venire had been exhausted and quite a number of others outside the venire had withstood tbe rigid test. The opening statement for the State was made by Prosecuting Attorney F. M. Klstler v;ho reviewed tho case so well known to Journal readers,making an exhaustive resume of the case. About two o'clock the State began the Introduction of witnesses, There '.» a cloud of witnesses on both sides and the caie IB expected to consume tbe time of the court far into next week.
