   Fort Wayne Sentinel (Newspaper) - March 26, 1888, Fort Wayne, Indiana                                 off Mïï  VOL. XXVIII--NO. 81.  MONDAY, MARCH 26, 1888.  PRICE TWO CENTS  ALLOFTHE  iff TMS  -I N-  Trimmings  GEORGE  DE WALD  «1 AND >»  COMPANY.  A SEW SPOT.  The Washington Economists EInd it and Break Ont.  This is a telegram from Washington:  A good deal of complaint is heard from ooDgreesmen abont the large sums withdrawn from the appropriations for public buildings to pay the official help, such as superintendents, clerks and the like, connected therewith. It is the natural result of this practice that the building itself must suffer, either in size or ornamentation, for the amount to be expended is limited in the original law under which it is erected. The amount of money thus diverted is very considerable, particularly when the work of con struction is extendeil over several years. For instance, this civil list connected with the Fort Wayne building has consisted of a superintendent, at $2,190 a year; a foreman at $1,565; a clerk, at $1,248; and a watchman at $785, annually. This repreeents a total annual expenditure of ^,788, and when it is considered that this building has been in course of erection during four years, it is easy to see that the salary list seriously impairs the construction fund. The civil service force attached to the New Albany builiding is equally as extensive and costly, but has not been so long under pay. These instances are of a class that are not peculiar to Indiana, and are only given to show that the ays-stem unaer which they are made possible is wrong.  The number of officers at the Fort Wayne building were established by the republioans as were their salaries. The building is not completed and the order of things necessarily continues. What are you going to do about it ?  The souvenirs to be presented their friends by Messrs. Sam, Pete & Max at the opening of their elegant new rooms will surprise the recipients.  A COJiCNDRUM.  If Coloiel Robertson is IJentenant Governor There in no Ta-eaocy.  Indianapolis News.  "Well, I wonder what the politicians are going to do about it?"  "What?"  "Why, the office of lieutenant governor."  "Why?"  "If Robert S. Robertson was elected in 1886 there will be no lieutenant governor to elect in 1888."  "How 80?"  "The constitution says (article 5, section 128) the lieutenant Governor shall hold hold his office during four years."  "Yes, but-"  "And tbe constitution says (article 5, ■ection 125) the official term of the lieutenant governor shall commence on the second Monday of January, in the year 1853, and on the same day every fourth year thereafter."  The second Monday in next January will be one of the fourth year Mondays, and in case a new lieutenant governor should go into office on that day he would go in at the appointed lawful time. This however, might becloud Robert-son's title, as he will not have held his oiHce during four years."  It looks as if the only way in which the true letter of the law may be fulfilled is for Robertson to have himself nominated to the governorship. Then he could with good graoe step out of the lieutenant govemoxship and solve the problem whether there should be nomi-nations to the place.  Do not for a moment let yoor confidence betray yon into supposing yourself incapable of mistake; therefore, be happy, by securing a bottle of Dr. Bull's Cough Symp, and you can sue-ceesfully flight off any coogh or ^cold however severe.  SUNDAY^STORM.  It Was General Throughout the West ABd ErerjiblDg Was Covered With Ice.  Washington, March 26.—Indians: Waimer, threatening weather and rain, followed by colder westerly wipds, conditions favorable for severe local storms  with cold wave.  liiNOoiiN, Neb., March 26—The storm that has been general over Nebraska the last twenty-four hours has been of un ususual severity. The fruit trees and timber are all heavily loaded with ice and sleet. Winter grains are undoubt edly infured and the outlook for fruit in ^is state is poor.  Ghioaoo, hi., March 26.—Dispatches from many points in Northern Blinois and Iowa report the prevalence yesterday of a severe sleet storm. Everything is covered with ice and in many places large limbs have been broken from the trees. Great damage to the wheat and fruit is feared. In this city and vicinity the sleet which fell yesterday, changed this morning to a heavy rain.  WHO WILL IT BET  Speculation in Washington as to the Snecessorof Chief Jastiee Wafte.  Washington March 26.—The speculation as to who will be appointed to take the place of Chief Justice Waite, increases as the delicacy of discussing it becomes less among public men. Nearly every name that was mentioned at first thought has been laid aside, but the list of availables grows with the minutes.  No one expects that the appointment will go to any member of the cabinet, unless it should be Postmaster General Dickinson. If any one connected with the present adminietration is selected it will be more likely Solicitor General Jenks than any one else. Mr. Phelps, the American minister to Great Britain, is being boomed by the Bostonians.  At the house end of the capitol enough first-class judicial timber could be found, not only for the chief justiceship, but to fill the whole bench. The distinguished gentleman now serving as speaker heads the list, and is one of the possibilities early suggested that has survived the first twenty-four hoars of speculation. Congressman (George Ë. Seney, of Ohio, is kindly spoken of by the local press. At present he is serving on the judiciary committee, and is one of its ablest members. He was jommon pleas judge in the Third judicial district of Ohio when he was only twenty-six years of age, and the late chief justice was a practicing lawyer before his court. Afterward Judge Seney and Judge Waite practiced law together. Representative "Pat" Collins, of Massachusetts, lis also mentioned for the place, as is also ex-Representative Randolph Tucker, who at one time was thought to be the leading candidate to succeed the late Justice Woods.  Judge Bingham, of Ohio, present chief justice of the supreme court of the District of Columbia, is also mentioned. The list is increased by Rufus W- Peck-ham, of New York; George W. Biddle, of Philadelphia; ex Governor Palmer, of Illinois; Melville W. Fuller and Judge Goudy, of Chicago, and Wm. R. Morrison and Judge Cooley, of the inter-state commerce commission,  Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, says he would like to see the president appoint Justice Field to the chief justiceship, and Mr. Carlisle as associate justice, or if Justice Field's age was considered a bar to his appointment, he would like 'osee Mr. Carlisle appointed chief justice. Until a chief justice shall be appointed. Justice Miller will be acting chief, and his official title is senior associate justice. All writs and other papers are thus signed by him.  London, March 26.—The • Timeg thinks that President Cleveland will not easily find a successor to Chief Justice Waiti', who shall be equally entitled to respect. "Justice Waite's judgment was always marked by good sense and he worthily succeeded a line of judges of whom America may well be proud."  Marietta's Celebration.  Mabibta, O., March 26.—The arrangements for the centennial celebration on the 7th of April are about completed. The State Historical society will have a meeting on the evening of the 6th inst, at which addresses will be made by several prominent speakers. Among those expected is General Wager Swayne. The principal address will be made by Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts. Mayor Jewett, at Palmer, has charge of the arrangements and to him all communication should be ad' dressed.  Woman Sent op for Life.  Paouoah, Ky., March 26.—The trial of Mrs. Price, for aiding and abetting the murder of Sheriff Winter, was concluded at Clinton, t >e jury returning a verdict of guilty and sentencing her for life. Sam Price, her son, who did the killing, was lynched three weeks ago. Mrs. Price is over sixty years old. The two Ogles are yet to be tried on the same charge.  WllsoB Aeqoitted.  Pabis, March 26.—The court of ap peals has reversed the decision in the case of M. Wilson and acquits him of the charge of complicity in the decora tion scandals. The other persons on trial with M. Wilson on similar charges were also acquitted.  THE i" STRIKE.  The Places of the Strikers Being Filled as Rapidly as Foggible.  Chioaoo, March 26.—At 10 o'clock the altercation between the Burlington company and the strikers close 1 and the places of the strikers are being filled aa rapidly as possible.  tb0i7blb on thb niokbii plats.  Rumors of a strike among the switchmen of the Nickel Plate railroad disturbed railroad cirdes yesterday. Local Agent Lockwood explained the rumors in this way: "The Nickel Plate does most of its freight business at this point through theLake Shore, on whose tracks it comes in. Testerday morning, it sent a switch engine from the yards at Stony Island down to the Lake Shore yards, at Forty-third street to take out a train. ^^ taken out with  the exception of two Burlington oars that happened to be among the rest, the switchmen refusing to handle those oars. The two cars were left standing on the tracks, while the train went to Stony Island. Later in the day the matter was smoothed over, and there will be no necessity of laying it before the general officers at Cleveland.  REVILED BY HER SUBJECTS.  Merciless Attacks of the German Press on the New Empress.  London, March 26.—Despite the reports of JSmperor Frederick's improved health', the Berlin newspapers continue to publish pessimistic articles. The slanderous attacks upon the empress are still kept up, though not with the egree of boldness that characterize them a weak ago. The illustrated papers are less circumspect, however, and caricatures and pamphlets are freely circuluted, the nature of which it^ would be impossible to even hint at. A gratifying offset to these offensive publications is the movement started by the women of Germany to present to her majesty, the empress, an address in recognition of her fidelity and devotion to her husband, and her contention, exemplified by ber German life, that marriage is not slavery, but a partnership.  HEIfRT HILBBECHT.  He Gets a Nomination Over the Protests of the Bepnblican Leaders.  The republicans of Wayne township met Saturday night, and it was with the hardest kind of work that Chairman Wilson gave Henry Hilbrecht the nomination for township trustee.  Mr. H. C. Hanna, Mr. J. B. Harper and Mr. A. A. Purman questioned Mr. Hilbrecht's republicanism and asked him to come forward and pledge himself. Mr. Hilbrecht declined, and for two hours the convention was a howling wilderness of confusion.  Mr. T. P. Keator attacked Colonel Robertson's party standing, and young Downey, who just emerged from jail, mode a demand that the convention nominate a republican.  Mr. M. F. Barbour, the chairman, stood the ordeal, but he didn't know whether he was presiding or playing whist, still he recognized the old timers. Finally Hilbrecht made an evasive pledge after listening to the riot act until his head was dizzv.  Mr. Hanna and others wanted him to say he would support the next republican county, state« congressional and national ticket. ile refused to do so, and before the meeting had a chance to ot)-jecthe was declared the nominee for trustee.  This leaves large clots of blood on the republican moon and clogs the old machine, because as one of the leaders remarked, "We don't propose to put a premium on politicians for revenue, or men who vote with one party and hold office under another."  WHITLEY COUNTY.  Instructs Delegates for Messrs. Brown and McNagny.  Ex-Auditor Yonntz, of Whitley county, was in the city this morning. He says that Hon. Eli W. Brown will make the race for state auditor even in the face of Mr. Munson's renewed candidacy.  Mr. Tountz says that the state delegates from Whitley county, chosen last week, are solid for Mr. Brown.  The congressional delegates, chosen at the same time, are, according to Mr. Yonntz,, a unit for Hon. William F. Mc-Nagny for congress.  Mr. Brown and Mr. McNagny have pooled issues and their county give each one solid support for the places they seek. If Mr. Brown remained in the congressional field euch a result would be improbable.  With Mr. Brown for state auditor, Mr. McNagny for congress and Colonel McDonald for joint senator, Whitley county is likely to get something, if not everything.  Democratic Primary.  BiiCffton, Ind , March 26.—The following ticket was nominated by the democracy of this county Saturday: For representative, Dr. Gtoorge E. Fulton; for treasurer, John E. Sturgis; for sheriff. James T. Dailey; for surveyor, G. T. Markley; for coroner, Henry Thoma;for commisBionerB, P. Mclntire and G. H. King.  THE DE^ CHIEF!  The United States Sapreme Court Bar Meet to Take Action Concerning Judge Waite's Death.  Washington, March 26.—About forty prominent members of the bar of the supreme court assembled in the court room at 11 o'clock this morning, pursuant to 'a call. Senator Evarts was called to the chair and Clerk McEenney was made secretary, Senator Evarts said:  "Friends and Brethren of the Bar:—  "We are called :together upon this solemn occasion of the death of the chief jasticeof the United States to take proper action in our respect for his position and himself, and for the attendance of the bar at the funeral, and for the appointment of a committee to prepare suitable resolutions, commemorative of his character, his virtues and his great service, to be presented at some future meeting of the bar."  A resolution was adopted to attend the funeral service in a body. The chair was authorized to appoint a committee of seven to prepare resolutions to be pesented at a future meeting. The chairman named as the committee: The attorney general, Messrs. Edmunds and Vest, of the senate; Messrs. Culberson and Esnra B. Taylor, of the house of representativea, and Messrs, Shellabar-ger and Ashton, of the district bar. The meeting then adjourned.  Lociiffirs.  Miss Mattie Martz is recovering from an attack of fever.

Heißkell, state grand chancellor of the Knights of Pythias, is in the city and attended the installation of members of the new Loyal lodge to-day. The lodge was instituted this afternoon, to conclude with a banquet at S'edel's in the evening.  Miss Elizabeth Loocke, of Berlin, Germany, is visiting her uncle, Mr. Rudolph Siemon, of No. 19 West Jefferson street. Last evening a banquet was given in her honor by Mrs. Lydia Schwegeman, which was attended by twenty-three cousins.  Judge Chapin dismissed the suits of Jacob Feiger vs. the Peters Box and Lumber company, the case of Delevan Prince vs. H. C. Rockhill, and Daniel M. Doyle vs. Leopold Wolf.

James Walsh, the fellow who stole three coats from Mr. Ranke, Saturday, put in a plea of guilty this morning before Judge O'Rourke and was sentenced to one year in the prison north.

Tascott Again.  MiNNBAPoiiis, Minn., March 26.—A Journal Winnipeg special says: "The arrivals from Harrison Hot Springs, forty miles from the Pacific eoast, on the Canada Pacific road, state that Tascott was there for a day, when he hired an Indian to oanoe him down Harrison riv-' er, and it is supposed that he is hiding ' some where in the mountaina. A Chicago detective arrived later and a party . has been diaj^tohed in pnraoit"  IN OL^TORY !  Terrible Scene In the Parlor of a Fern Realdence—Slain by Hia Brother.  Pkbu, Ind., March 26.—A fatal accident occurred last evening at the residence of J. Euch. His two sons, Fred and Earl, were playing at "Indian scouts," when Earl, who was snapping a supposed unloaded revolver at his brother, dischars^ed the weapon, the ball striking Fred in the forehead, killing him instantly.  The revolver had been unloaded, but Fred, during the evening, had placed a live cartridge therein, from which he received hia death a few moments later. The shooting was done in the presence of the horrified pare&ts, who are nearly crazed with grief. Fred was aged twelve and Earl sixteen.  HOMFFBOM THE EAST.  Tom Byrnes Returns from New York and is Ready for the Campaign —Political Gossip.  Indianapolis, March 26.—The Hon. Thomas B. Byrnes, of Evansrille, arrived in this city y^terday from New Tork, where he has been for more than a month. He is on his way home, but will remain at the Grand hotel for a few days. Mr. Byrnes is in the race for the democratic nomination for treasurer of state, and as yet he has but one rival, Mr. John H. Piercy, of Greencastle. When asked by a reporter last evening aa to the political feeling in New Tork City, Mr. Byrnes said:  "I never saw anything in my life so unanimous as the sentiment for Cleveland. The business men are for him to a man. In fact, I heard no other name mentioned for the democratic nomination in business circles, and I am about as well acquainted there as here. At the hotels Hill was occasionally spoken of by some local politician, but I am confident that if Governor Hill should make an effort, he could not carry the delegation of a single county in the state as against President Cleveland. The commercial interests of the country are united for Cleveland and there is in my judgment not the least doubt of his re-nomination and re-election."  The Hon. A. G. Smith, of Jennings county, is being mentioned as a possible nominee for attorney general. His friends here, however, have not been informed that he is out of the race for governor.  Largely Prohibition.  Babnbsvtlle, O., March 26.—A special election on township prohibition was held here Saturday. The majority against the sale of liquors in this ( Warren) township was most emphatic. The drys carried the day by a majority of almost six to one. This is the first election held in the state under the new law. ____  nUl Not Accept.  New York, March 26.—Rev. Henry T. Satterlee, rector of the Calvary Episcopal church, Fourth avenue and Twenty-first street, has declined the call to the assistant bishopric of Ohio, for the reason that he he must stand by his present and incomplete work in this city.__  The Boy Borglars Seeaptnred.  Mabion, Ind., March 26.—OwenGrif. fin and Charles Young, the two boy burglars who broke last Tuesday, were recaptured here to-day and returned to the bastile. While at large, the young rascals were in hi^g with a farmer near Lafontaine.  <<N11 Desperandom,"  The recent purchase of Messrs. Rock-hill Bros, ¿k Fleming, arrived by express from New York yesterday morning, and our horse editor had the pleasure of inspecting him as he came from the car. He reflects credit upon the judgment of his owners and should add largely to the future value of our trotting stock. He is a horse of immense power and muscular development and has all the style and finish of the "Belmonts." His record of 2:24 was made in the sixth heat of an arduously contested race and is an index of his speed and gamenees. His ability to beget spee^i is shown in his colts—Du Barry 2:19^ and Matchless 2:28^, theee two being from the first eight colts got by him when he was oampaigninj^. There is, we think, but one trotting stallion in the state with a faster record and his advent here will add greatly to the reputation which Fort Wayne is assuming as a breeding center. With three such stallions as Strathmore, Wayne Wilkes (2:18), Nil Desperandum (2:24) and a go^ clasf of brood mares we should be able to claim more trotters than any county in the state. __  Wanted.

CONGRESS.  The Senate Votes $5,000 to Defray the Funeral Expensen of the Late Chief Justice Waite.  Washctoton, March 26.—Mr. Allison introduced a bill appropriation $5,000 to defray the funeral expenses of the late chief justice of the supreme ooorK Passed.  mousk  Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, offered the following, which was adopted:  Resolved, That the funeral ceremoTif « of Chief Justice Waite be held in th^^ h J. of the house of reprf sentativea We day, March 28, at 12 o'clock uoon, nad.--the arrangement of the sapreme c vjrr and that when they adjourn on tu- iT'^i: it shVll be until 11:30 a. m.

All the Methodist ministers of the city preached sermons yeetert'ay mornina; that were appropriate to the last Sunday of their conferenc« year which closes with this week. Each of them leaves to-day to attend the aannal conference of the church, which commenot-H its seesion at Wabash to-morrow ar-d it is probable that all will be retarne l ir, their present charges except Rev. F. G. Browne, the pastor of the Wayue Btreet church, who has remained with his coo gregation three years, as long as the rules of the chureh will permit.  Those who will be returned will he Rev. D. C Woolpert, of the B i-rr street church; Rev. C. H. Wilkinson, of the Bimpsou; Rev. L. M. Murlin, of the Trinity, and Rev. M. C. Cooper,  Each of these spoke In fitting termp yesterday of the closing of the confer ence year and the work that is before them at their annual session.  Rev. Browne's sermon partook of thf nature of a farewell. He has been ^ faithful and a popular minister and th • church has prospered under his pastoral care. During his three years' resideoce in the city he has made many friendn They will regret to part with a pastor who has given such excellent satlsfao tion, but the best wishes of his congregation will follow him to his new churcl. home. Who his successor will be only a matter of speculation. The Wayne street church ia oue of th largest and most prosperoni? congre;?^-tions in the city and the conference, ir^ their wisdom, will undoubtedly send ou*: of the beet ministers in the district „to fill its pulpit.  The audience room of "the litUo Graoe church" was crowded yesterdav morning to hear the farewell wordn of their pastor. Rev. T. J Bacher, whose resignation we announced in The Sen -ttitbij several days ago. The eermc : was not of the nature of a farewell dress, for the pastor confessed that has emotions at parting with his conprre ;?!; tion were too great to allow him t-preach such a discourse, but he allude ^ brieflly to his leave taking, both in commencing and closing his sermon, acd hi-pathetio words brought tears to many an eye.  For five years he had presided over the little flock which he had organ^z > in this city, and few pastors have pvt : had a firmer hold upon the affections^ of their people t'lau h\ Coming here a stranger, he has not on'v built a church and organized i concr --gation of which any denomin ation laigh feel proud, but has left them fr? > frotu debt and in a flourishing condition bo'h spiritually and financially. Theprw ers of his congregation will follow hiai wh^ver he goes and he will alwHyn have an affectionate remembraace i i t ' -^ hearts of the worshipper at the Graoe church.  Rev. Bacher has not decided ano-2 hfc future movements, other than that he will spend some time in Ohio and on tlit Pacific coast for hia wife's health, ovl which account he resigned his charg^i^ here, but he is too zealous a Chririfciau-to long remain idle and it is probable tliit he will soon be actively at work in aome other point of the Lord's vineyard.
