He May have had a were to the effect to at he is getting Hunch that the Busy burglar Man along As Well As could be expected was coming. At any rate he re j but it will be some time yet before moved All of the Money from the he will be Able to return to his Strong Box and the burglars had All work. Of their work for nothing at this place. Overcome by heat whether the cracks men were pro last saturday afternoon mrs. Ida Fessio nals or Home Talent they were Shuey came up town and As it was very Clever As they left no clue to very hot she stepped into one of our who did the work. It is very Possi-1 restaurants and got a Glass of soda ble that they were old hands at the water. After resting a Short time business. She drank a Glass of ice water and the people of West Lebanon Are then in company with a Friend of the opinion that there is a regu i started to go across the Street. She Lar organized gang operating in had not gone far until she Felt her this Community for about every i self sinking Down and called to her two or three months either West i Friend for support. Others standing Lebanon or state line is visited by nearby saw the trouble and went to these night prowlers. It is apparent that the people who do the Rob the Oil inspection Law has been i picked into the political ring by candidate Goodrich declaring that if elected he will fire the Oil inspectors and Adair replying that if the Law is an evil one it is of re pub ican origin and the Public is left without information As to the evil complained of. The Law was passed in 1901, and is of Republican origin and if it had received a proper construction and applied As intended there would be no room for complaint but it has been misconstrued for the purpose of creating a lot of offices and fees have been taxed which Are not warranted by the Law and which were not intended by the legislature. The Law properly construed would not entail a heavy expense and would employ but few men. The Law provides for the appointment by the governor for a period of four years a supervisor of Oil inspection at a salary of $2,500.00 per year and that such supervisor May appoint such Deputy inspectors As he deems necessary. It also provides that such Deputy inspectors May inspect either within or without the state it being the evident purpose of the legislature that such inspectors should Only be stationed at the general distributing Points from which Oil is shipped into the state of Indiana. It also provides that such inspector shall receive forty cents for inspecting each barrel cask or package where the number inspected at one time does not exceed two and where the number exceeds two and does not exceed ten there shall be charged fees As above on the first two and Twenty cents on each additional and died because of old Aoe Clay Swisher was born near Lebanon 74 years ago West Street m into Auto. Clair Haun and family came near having serious Accident. Was shipped into the state of Indiana some of which were located in Indiana and others in adjoining states and therefore intended that inspectors should be located at such Points and knowing also that some of such distributing stations were not within the state made a provision whereby such inspectors could be stationed outside of Indiana. It is the duty of an inspector to Brand each Container of such Oil with his approval or rejection and stamp thereon by a Stencil furnished him and after the Oil is removed such Brand must be removed before the tank is again used. It will be seen that the Law As enacted provided for an inspection of Oil by a Small of men at a reasonable Cost but unfortunately it gave an Opportunity for the employment of a Large number of inspectors and has been seized upon by political manipulators and been made the Means of furnishing a lot of Fellows with a soft berth. In the first place they construed the Law to mean that the inspection fees was on a barrel basis that in Case where a car contains six or ten thousand Gallons they charge on the basis of so Many separate barrels or in other words the same As if the car Load of gasoline had been shipped in barrel lots and thereby instead of getting a fee of forty cents they get from $13.00 to $25.00, depending on the size of the car. And instead of having a Small number of inspectors at general distributing Points they have appointed inspectors 11 Over the state until there re How fifty eight of them and they each get from to $600.00 per month depending upon Clay Swisher aged 74, passed away at his Home near Rossville Illinois Friday evening at 4 30 o clock from a complication of diseases. Or. Swisher was bom at West Lebanon ind., where he lived until about fifteen years ago when he moved to a farm near Rossville. He remained on this farm until a Little Over a year ago when he moved to that City. He is survived by a wife and one son Coburn. Two children a son and a daughter preceded him in death. The funeral was held tuesday afternoon and interment was made in the West Lebanon cemetery. Or. Swisher was Well and favor Bly known in Williamsport and was very highly respected. He had much to do with the making of Warren county and was one of the Hardy pioneers who helped to turn the wild Prairie into Fertile Fields. He is one of the men who when a boy was sent to Mill with a bag of Grain on horseback when Good roads were an unknown Quantity. The deceased was a Good husband and father Broad minded and very considerate of his neighbors. He leaves to mourn his death besides his wife and soil a Large Circle of sorrowing friends. Butil Indiana held re Union. Only a few where the number exceeds ten fees the amount of Oil inspected. Above on the first ten and ten one half of the funds goes to the state of Indiana and last year there was paid into the state Treasury from this fund $156,000.00. The Law properly construed is a wholesome one but it has been As cents on each additional barrel cask or package above ten. It thus appears that the intention of the Law is that the charge shall be based on the number of barrels of the old living. Boys now casks or packages examined without grossly reference to the Quantity of gasoline contained in the particular cask or package it being no More work to test a Quantity of Gas Ohne taken from a 12,000 gallon Railroad tank abused for the purpose of creating offices and As the democratic party has been working overtime to create state offices and appointments this Law has aft order a very Fertile Field for operation and than it is to test a gallon taken from 1 Many a Good Democrat is now sit an Ordinary barrel. The Law does not Ting in his office and making from employ the word tank or car but $300.00 to $600.00 per month without the words used quot cask or package quot j interfering in any Way with his Are sufficient to include Ordinary other business Railroad tanks. Our courts have never passed up the legislature which passed this on the provisions of this Law and it Law evidently recognized that there i has been left to the construction of were but few general distributing i the state executives and has been Points from which Gas Ohne and Oil i permitted to become a Plain graft. Last week the 86th Indiana regiment held their re Union at Lebanon Boone county. Wolfe Hirsch a former citizen of Attica who now lives in Chicago wrote to his Attica friends re calling the fact that it has been More than 54 years ago since company c of that regiment left Attica 100 Strong and went to Lafayette to join the other companies.
