The fact that'the citizens of German descent are all for sound money seems to have greatly enraged the Pharos, and tnere was no end to its misrepresentation of the 6c casilon, but the picnic went on just as usual, and everybody had a good t||ic just as if the Pharos never existed.

The plans were nuulo, :iud the preliminary work begun by tlie appointment of excellent committees, which will- work in conjunction with tlie officers of the organization, and report progress at the rink Saturday night, September 12th.

If enthusiasm and push will accomplish the desired end, "the big night meeting of September IGth will be a red event in the campaign of 1S9C for this section of Indiana. The commit- /te'o on invitations will see that the •friends of the movement in neighboring cities are not neglected, and delegations may be In to join the big pro- :cesBlon r that will -take its way over the. ^principal'streets with an accompaniment of fire works.

The club will -hold : a date open for Hon.v W/.D. Bynum,' chairman of the' National.committee:of the:^National Democratic party. The latter -was 'in the city-yesterday on 'Els-Way to Chicago from Indianapolis, and expressed a .wish that he might l>e given a date in .Logansport.

The last will and testament of Mis Kate Field, who died some time ag at Honolulu, has been found In Wash 'iugton and filed for probate. 'Mis Field had left a small package wit! J. T. Deviue, proprietor of the Shore ham Hotel. George Riddle of Bostoi a .cousin of Miss Field, was appointee by the courts of Massachusetts as co' Icctoror administrator until a will wa. found. Upon his arrival at Washing ton yesterday Mr. Riddle mentioned his errand to Mr. Dcvlue, who produced the package left in his care b; Miss Field. The package, was opened in the presence of .the register of'wills and the paper was found, duly exe cuted. Under its provisions EC. H. Kohlsaat of Chicago, and T. Standford Beatty private secretary to Senator Brlce, are named as executors. The- value of the estate is not named in the will.. Miss Field directs that her body be brougb. to this country andi-creinated, the ashes to be deposited at Mount Auburn Cambridge, Mass. TWs will probably put an end to the scheme which took shape.shortly aftei Miss Field's death, to imove her body from its resting place and inter it near the monument erected to Johu Brown in the Adirondacks. The John Brown reservation and monument owe their existence to Miss Field's patriotism; and It was thought By tier 'frlenOfe-iliat her burial in that hallowed spot would be a fitting tribute to the dead writer. Last July, when the reservation .was formally turned over to the State, an effort was made to raise money for this purpose. Mr. Kohlsnat was reported to be Interested in the enterprise. ' ' . . .tnent; .,.-;. •. • . . •.i'Mr; John P. Irish, wuo came from California to' the National convention WALLRATH ONLY. A TOFOCRAT. .Peru Republican: Peter .Wallrath, the candidate for joint representative on the Popocratic tlc'kctv was an uounced at the time of His nomination a sound money Democrat. His speech published in the Logansport Pharos shows him to be a full-fledged Bryan ite in thorough accord with .Dave HnJfloy and all the other blatherskites that live by working their jaws for free coinage of sllvev on-private account for the benefit of a. few bullion owners. Wnllrath claims to be a bimctallist. but favors the Mexican plan. Mexico has free coinage of bpthvsilver and gold, but all the gold goes "to other countries to pay balances and leaves poor Mexico with nothing but silver dollars worth at home only fifty cents in gold. This is the' kind of -bimetallism .Mi-. Wallrath would give, us and this is the kind of a Senator Mr. Wallrath would-choose if be should go to 'the legislature this winter. Mr. Wallrath 'says in his speech that "free coinage will be a benefit'to the mine owners, but it only gives back to them what was taken Troiri them in 1S73." So the silver mine owners are a privileged class that'tlie'government is compelled to favor whether the I country is ruined by It or not. This Is a Popocratic doctrine. The silver mine owners have a propaganda that lias been distributing such doctrines all over the country for the last ten years. A few years ago the Populists took up the cause of the silver syndicate and became its champion: but not until this year did'the party calling itself Democratic abase itself la the dust and become hewers of wood and drawers of water for the bullion owners of the Rocky mountains. Mr. Wallrath had better kept his Popolistie money ideas to himself. There are six hundred sound money Democrats In Miami comity wno will not touch him with a ten foot pole. Wiilliam T. Wilson of Logansport, his competitor for joint representative, for MiamiTJud Cass is a sound money man and is making a gallant fight for Eon- est money. - , . THE APPOINtnENTS. Conference of the U.
