The Indianapolis company paid for all of its plant and all its work by the sale of $2.000,000 of bonds. It then Issued $2.000 000 of stock, which is pure and unadulterated water. Of this stock the company has been paying from 8 to 12 per cent, dividends annually, and the slock itself is now quoted on the New York market at 35 per cent, premium. The Trust has been making more than the Indianapolis company so far as the stockholders were or ought to have been con- oerned. It has used the profits to re- tlra its entire bonded debt.

The Indianapolis News says that reports from the I. O. O. F. lodges of the State indicate that nine thousand men will participate in the parade in that city Wednesday afternoon. On account of the reduced railroad rates mmense numbers of visitors from all points of the Sknto are expected. Tho jrand officers are asking the business houses to be liberal in their displays f bunting and flags and hope to have msiness suspended from 1 to 4 p. m. hat members of the order who are mployed may take part in the celebration. At 8 p. m. two public meet- ingB will bo hold. At the Grand Lodge hall, J. B. Cockrum will speak on "Odd Fellowship;" U. Z. Wiley will make an address on • -Its Tenets and Toachnigs;" J. B. Kenner will speak on "Its Benefits and Charities;" and M. A. Chipman will talk on "Its Branches." Grand Patriarch George Shirts will preside at this meeting. At English's opera house C. T. Campbell, grand sire, will speak on "Odd Fellowship," C. F. Northern will discuss "Its Foundation" "Its Fruits and its Future" will be the subject of C. C. Binkley. E. G. Hogate will speak on "Its Influence In Home, Church and State," Refreshments will bo served at both meetings. Tho grievance committee is now meeting at the grand lodge and will submit its reports at the semi-annual session which begins on Wednesday. About the only thing remaining to make the parade successful Is good weather. Reports to the grand offi. cers say the attendance from out of the otty will be largo, not being restricted to Odd Fellows. The floats to be used In the parade are about completed. As they are to be shown in the day unusual care is taken In their decoration. Tho business men are taking an Interest In decorating the buildings along the line of march, some of the houses having started on the work this morn, ing. Shuman, Bar bar* Christf David P. Ratroff. THE LAW OF IT. ' -The gas stock is held by email stockholders," said an attorney yes, terday. "Of the $180,000 subscribed, $160,000 is subscribed by coniumers, and $30,000 by those who are seeking an investment. The poor people have nearly all the stock, and of course can turn out and control the company if they distrust their directors. Each share of stock has one vote. This is the state law and the by-laws or the company cannot change it. With the present company the power people own four-fifths of the stock, and of courle, can turn out and vote It whenever they think things are not running right. That id one of the great advantages in this power. The consumers control and run it." COMPLIMENTS HIM. ' 'Dr. Battery as chairman of the special committee was one of the best hustlers I ever saw" said a citizen yesterday. "He is entitled to the credit of raising a greater part of that $180,000. It is too bad that he is not as enthusiastic as ever because the business men preferred another man for president. They had nothing against the doctor but his haste to go ahead at any cost. He can do ai much good as ever if be wants to and everybody will give him credit for all he does." WANT TO OO AHEAD, The Journal interviewed a tumber of citizens yesterday on the pas situa tlon. All favored collecting the sub soriptions and, if the way was clear financially, going ahead about the work. The interviews are given as follows: Joe Kenney—Don't delay a minute. Go right ahead. M. C. Wade—[ am in favor of put ting in the new plant. John Gray—I think we ought to put in a new plant Dy ail means. J. C. Hadley—Put In the new plant at once. Go right ahead. Henry Tucker—The new plant should go In. I am In favor of It. S. B. Boyer—I am In favor of the new plant and at once. Go ahead. W. H. Snider—I thiok everyone favors going ahead I certainly do. Mayor Read—We must go right . < in a adherents, consiflera- furnish a large number and both the Landis men and the Johnston men arranged for a special train. The Johnston train was to leave at 10:30 and the Landis train at 11:30. Cars wore sidetracked for each train and the Landis men paid for their train. When the Johnston train was made up one of the slaughter houses shut down and gave its men a half holiday to go to tho convention. This swelled the Johnston crowd beyond expectations and 'by some one's orders the Landis care were coupled on for the use of the crowd. When the Lantls men arrived their cars wore gone and they could not -even get flat ears. The Johnston train returned for them at 12:45, over an hour after schedule time and after the Landis crowd had separated, and but fifteen minutes before the hour of the con, ventlou to meet. The distances was thirteen miles, so that the Johnson train could have got there and got back in time to take tbe Landis crowd if it was so ordered. It was too late to again assemble the Landis forces, too late to get to tho convention In good shape and the offer of tbe train at that time was,refused. The Landis men, when they found that tho Johnston men had taken their cars, assembled in tho Hammond *opora house and pasted resolutions denouncing the proceeding and the methods of the Johnston men. They selected twelve delegates to represent tho Hammond township and ordered a contest in tho congressional convention. Thus the matter stands and it looks like a con. troversy fatal to both candidates. THE STATE OKQAN ON THE SITUATION.

COR>||> Founded Humor, A Journal reporter yesterday investigated the rumor baaed' upon the communicMion of a correfpondeat from Burrows and pubii-hcd in Sunday's Journal, relating 10 the alleged violent treatment received by Mrs. Wasson of Burrows who died at the hospital for the insane at lodianapolls last Tuesday. The undertaker, Mr. Chas. Baker., of Cumden, who had charge of the remains and who accompanied them from IcLiananolis and prepared them for burial at Burrows on lest Thursday declares that the discolored and swollen condition of the ripbt cheek and neck, was due entirely acd only to the natural process of nature in si,ch cases and that these visable and unpleasant marks ot death could not be in any way attributed to contusions received by violence during life. The death of Mrs. Wasson, who was one of the most highly esteemed residents of tho Burrows region occurred on Monday night the* 7th inst. She had been removed to '-he hospital for the insane the Friday before in a. jreally exhausted condition. OB Monday niffht as the attendant passed he door of the patient about nine o'clock the latter was observed to be> itting on the side of tho couch. At bout 11 o'clock she was seen to- be lying dow& and at the nevt turn of the- attendant was also lying down apparently asleep. At the pasting of the attendant about one o'clock it waft observed that, tho patient's respiration was not r;err,.,,> h ,. Kr ^ :ln J nffeg . tigatioo rovenn-Q :t:..;. ,-tie was deed and had prodaMy.

Keesling—I am in favor of a new plant. This article from the Sentinel shows the profit In the gas business: 'The people of Indianapolis gerior- nent at Hammond and thus prevented them from going to the county convention are false or h'ghly colored. If they are true the men who are guilty of the offense forgot that they call themselves Republicans and that the party is pledged to a fair vote and an honest count in primaries and conventions. as woll as in the formal elections. No Republican can afford to take a nomination in a convention whose majority is j obtained by any such trickery as the I stealing of trains, the preventing- of a fair vote and the voting of Democrats. No Republican can afford it because, if no higher consideration appeals to him than failure at the polls, that should. Aoplrancs and their friends who are beaten after fair primaries and in a fair convention will, if Re. publicans, honestly support the ticket, but the man who obtains a nomination by schemes which have suppressed a fair vote In the primaries has no right to expect or to demand the support of those who have been tricked. If what Is reported as having been done at Hammond is true, a new convention should be bold In Lake county, even if the holding of the district convention should bo obliged to be postponed to give time for it. The republicans can oftwy the Tenth district with a candidate fairly nominated, but they will not elect one whose nomination Is obtained with trickery, Tbe two aspirants,'as honorable men and loyal republicans, should adjust this matter In some way before the convention. If they cannot, cool-headed Republicans should.select seme other man, as it i vastly more important that a ropubli oan should represent the district than that one of two aspirants should get the nomination by foul means, to be defeated at the polls. Sunday Balloon Aneonilon It js summer. The signs of tho times are on. Sunday balloon ascen. slons have begun, tho summer cars take an eastward, o'erburdened flight and the swelling maples put on their verdant umbrage. Tho first balloon ascension of the year was proudly made by a valued attache of the Journal, and safely made, too. "Prof." Wm. ,Gall, who, by the way, learned his A. B. C.'sout of Journal cases, was tbe prime In. stigator of this great feature of Sunday entertainment, and his chief as slstant and prime accomplice; he who made the daring, cloud ward 'scape— the same which held so many thousand eyes as In a vice, he who re celved the loud acclaim and plaudits of the masses was none other than tho Journal's own Jon Kelly—that dar ing wight, who for tho first time oa Sunday, from the bravest tip of classic Hamilton Heights ascended aloft in a balloon. Fortunately tho ascent was safely accomplished, like| wise the descent. The hero of tho hour "made even" on tho top of Mr. F. M. Mahoney's palatial residence in Maple Grove, to the no great detriment of the roof thereof, as was after, ward definitely ascertained. The ascent was one of the highest ever made In this town of balloon ascensions and young Mr. Kelly cov ered himself with glory, and was quite considerably congratulated upon his escape from instant deal h. ' Who will be tho next?" asks ••Prof." Wm. Gall. A Bicycle Accident. Last night Reno Kuhn was riding bis wheel with a friend up In the East End. He encountered a rock which turned his wheel and in righting him* self tbe handle • bar was strangely enough twisted off and the rider fell with fearful force, headlong to the. ground. His face was badly lacerated the right cheek being so torn that a- number of stitches were required to- put it In place again. Besides this he received a severe cut on the forehead and other marks on the face all of which will make a most painful and disagreeable memento of the bicycle, season of 1894. Mr. Kuhn is one of the city's most enthusiastic riders. Hn has been in both of the Journal's famous road races and hae a pleasant record as a wheelman. His painful accident is regretted. A Plen»lnK Performance, Tbe Brothers Bryce, James, Matth. > Andrew and John, assisted by an excellent company of actors and actress*, es, led by Mr. John W, Parr, gave one of the most enjoyable entertainments of tbe season at Dolan's last night. Although this IB the first performance, of the Brothers Bryne In their great spectacular and pantomimic successes here, it is trusted that it will not be the last and if they will play a return at a more seasonable date, they will surely bo greeted by a big house. While tbe« audience was not larjre last night It did not lack in appreciation and the pantomimic comady "Eight Bells"' was excellently well received. The. company was larjre and well selected and tbe comedy was replete with enjoyable musical and other specialties- Up at Adamsboro a few days ago a suit of clothes wi:.h no apparent owner was found along tbe river bank. The question which now agitates the people up there is whether a tramp beg. ged or stole a better suit than his own and recklessly took a bath and changed Buits, leaving his own to-create dark suspicions, or whether some one doffed his clothes to bath In Eel river and tbeu carelessly drowned himself. As no one is reported missing from that region no great amount of worry Is being occasioned by the. peculiar find. Wanted—Furnished or unfurnished house. Address Harry W.
