Till police pension Bill has been withdrawn from the Senate files and will not be heard of a Ain. At least at the present session. Superintendent <3ors-line, who strongly advocated the Bill on behalf of his men. Telegraphed senator Ryan instructing him to withdraw the pension Bill and it was done forthwith. This ends a matter which caused a Good Deal of discussion and gave Rise to some differences of opinion among the members of the City administration. Mayor Scherer favored some measure insuring Protection to the police but he deemed the Bill proposed too far reaching and too liable to become a Burden on the tax payers. Comptroller Berghoff objected to the Bill because of the expense it would ultimately Saddle on the Treasury and because it opened up avenues for fraud by which the City could be victimized. The officers of the Force will be much disappointed at the failure to get the Bill through. Charter amendments. The Republican committee completed its work and the Bill it has drafted will be forwarded to senator Gilbert to Day. The committee agreed on All the amendments mentioned heretofore. The opposition to the amendment regulating assessments framed by messes. Bergholc and Shambaugh was withdrawn and this feature goes into the Bill. In addition or.

The Board of health will be legislated out of existence and a health commissioner at a salary of $1,500, will be appointed. The police and fire departments will be reorganized thoroughly. Under the provisions of the amendment both dominant parties must have equal representation Irr each department. This Means that thirty Iive men will be thrown out of work As soon As the Bill takes effect and their places will be filled by republicans. It will be replacing Good Timber with that which is doubtful. The City attorney s office is made elective after 1901. A spirit inimical to City attorney Shambaugh sprung up in the committee meeting and an Effort was made to have his office declared vacant and a new incumbent appointed by the governor. The committee Felt however that such an amendment would be objectionable to too Many republicans As taking away Power from the people and it was Defeated.

He was to be informed that this amendment had been stricken out and left under that belief while the Bill with the amendment mentioned tacked onto it was railroaded through the legislature. Or. Alderman might have been deceived in this Way and again he might not for or. Alderman is a very wide awake gentleman. However it was not necessary to work the scheme As , at the last moment gave in to the arguments of colonel poster and the rest.

Project will this evening ask to be dismissed from the Mother Church in order that they May proceed at Oce with the work of organizing a new congregation. In discussing the subject at hand with a representative of the journal the Rev. L. L. Henson pastor of the Baptist Tabernacle said Quot for a number of years even reaching Back into the former pastorate there have been those who Felt that a new Baptist Church ought to be organised in the City of fort Wayne. 1 have been of that opinion Ever since became acquainted with the Church and the Field but nothing definite in that direction has Ever been done until the present. But now the feeling that has Long existed has grown until it is agreed that the time has arrived when action ought to be taken. In accordance with this several members of the Church invited me to meet with them recently when after a season of prayer and after a full discussion of the subject it was unanimously agreed that Steps should be taken immediately. No Effort is being made or will be made to persuade members to leave the old Church for it is hoped that Only those who sincerely feel the need and plainly see the great Opportunity to Advance the cause of Christ in fort Wayne will feel it their duty to freely enter the new Field of labor. To this end there will be presented to the Church this evening the following letter which has been Una Mously adopted and the letter follows realizing the need that now exists and has Long existed in the City of fort Wayne for More than one Baptist Church and feeling in our own hearts that our Loving heavenly father has Laid upon us. The duty and the responsibility of organizing such a Church and being willing under god to make the sacrifices perform the labors and endure the hardships that such an undertaking is sure to entail we the undersigned members of the first Baptist Church of fort Wayne ind., respectfully ask our Mother Church to Grant us letters of dismissal for the purpose of organizing and maintaining a new Baptist Church in our City.
