Wolf at East in charge Abo to Boito Hospital for the use of the insane of that Money judge Fox opposes placing building near county infirmary similar plans under consideration by Fayette co. Commissioners. Wayne county has taken definite action in providing temporary Asylum outside its jail for the temporary use of unfortunate insane. Similar plans have been considered by the Fayette county commissioners but As yet nothing definite has been done. The Richmond item says appropriating $10,Cox for a county insane Hospital the Wayne county Council took preliminary Steps this morning looking toward the better care of her unfortunate insane. The Council and members of the Board of county commissioners held a joint meeting this morning and with architect Kaufman went Over the matter and inspected the plans for the proposed Bull Rife and while it was not definitely arranged to accept the plans submitted yet they doubtless will be because they were formed under suggestions and directions offered by or. S. E. Smith superintendent of the Eastern Indiana Hospital for the insane. Judge Henry c. Fox appeared before the meeting advocating the building of the Hospital at an Early Date. However he opposed the suggestion that the building be placed on ground at the county poor farm holding that it would be impossible to obtain sewerage connection and difficult in consequence to keep things in a sanitary condition. Judge Fox said the Structure ought to be built on the ground just South of the county jail but entirely separate from that institution. It is therefore probable that the Council and commissioners will heed the suggestions offered and the Hospital will be built within the City instead of seven Miles . Jackson dead. Capt. C. B.

Little says it 3fay have come largely from interest paid under tie old Barrett Law had to be paid in full. Thomas m. Little sex City treasurer who served in that capacity for seventeen years believes he can explain How the very Large sum accumulated from Barrett Law collections in the office of the county treasurer at Indianapolis. It will be remembered that the fund at the beginning of the year amounted to $27,-000 and since none seemed to have a valid claim to it mayor Bookwalter just before retiring turned the Money Over to Charity. Since then governor Marshall has ordered an investigation As it is his opinion that the Money is the property of the state. Therefore the question is a live one at this time. The theory was that this big fund accumulated from Odd pennies in Barrett Law improvements. This is Noav open to question and or. Little has an explanation that he thinks will account for the greater part of the Money. He says that under the old Barrett Law anyone wishing to make full settlement on improvements after Bonds were issued were required to pay the full of interest. This would probably represent a considerable sum of Money in a term of years in a City like Indianapolis and Only very careful bookkeeping would keep account of it. Or. Little said that he had a similar experience but Only in a Small Way in this City and that doubtless Many other county treasurers who served under the old Barrett Law would have similar tales to Tell. Or. Little s opinion is that the Money belongs to the City of in army John f. Snyder meets boyhood Friend after 38 years.

Orchestra at the commercial club last evening with an idea to perfecting preliminary arrangements for the great May musical event in this City. The dates tentatively arranged for the festival Are May 5 and 6 but these Are subject to change. The fact that the orchestra will come to this City at actual Cost will give or. Edwards the privilege to select the dates that will be most satisfactory to him. The reason for the reduction in the Cost of securing this splendid organization is apparent. It is partly for advertising purposes and comes at a time w Hen their regular season is closed. A great organization. Every member of the fifty members of the Cincinnati symphony or a Chestra is a Finis lied artist and is required to give his sole and exclusive service to the orchestra and not accept outside engagements such As in the theatres or at dances. Without any disparagement to the Indianapolis symphony orchestra it is but fair to say that the Cincinnati symphony is a much More Superior and higher class organization. C ners Volle May look Forward to their program with the greatest of pleasure for the orchestra is not surpassed in the West. Or. Edwards was apprised of the possible coming of one of the world s greatest composers Harry Stillman Kelley of Berlin and stated that in the event of his appearance Connersville will be assured of a musical feast that will not be surpassed in the entire country. Prof. Miessner is now studying under or. Kelly at Berlin and As the latter expects to visit California this year or. Miess ner Hopes to be Able to induce him to Stop off in the City in route and attend the festival. Should he accept the invitation he will direct his greatest composition Quot a chinese suite Quot at one of the performances and probably on the same occasion or.
