THE HIGH BINDERS METHODS. The manner In Which tbe •'Tonga'" or That Hoathcu Soclotr l»l»po«o or Tuclr Vlcilnm. During the past winter and in tho early spring- tho mysterious presence ot numbers of atrango Chinamen in Logansport and their evident designs of some equally mysterious character upon the inoffensive Chinese laundry man and tea merchant, Lee Wah Sin on Third street, created no sma.1 amount of talk about "Hlffh Binders and the methods of this moat crimina organization in this country. Con corning tbe methods of this sooief the following dispatch from Sai Francisco gives some detail, Tho dispatch says: The battles of warring highbinders In Chinatown have taken a new turn. The fury of these murdering bands Is now being wreaked upon the helpless women who are the slaves of High binder masters. It has long been an unwritten law In Chinatown that life should be taken for life, and whenever a Highbinder has been murdered the member of his long, or society have invat lably taken the life of some member of the Tong whoso members were supposed to have done the killing. In this way Highbinder warfare when once started, claims many victims. On the 8th instant Choy Glm, a Chinese woman, who was an Inmate of a Church street brothel, died In the Receiving Hospital from a bullet lired into her head by an assassin whom tho police could not discover. Early this morning a second woman, named Quee Sing, was murdered In a Dupont-street brothel. Tbe fact that this morning's victim Is a chattel of a Highbinder leader, whose Tong rivals that to which tbe first victim's master belongs, Is suffio* lent proof to the police that Highbinder jealousies are at the bottom of the two brutal murders. Neither of the helpless women bad done any. thing to provoke her assassination. More murders of a similar oharaocer are looked for. These helpless women are valued by their masters In Chinatown all the way from $1,000 to $2,000 and the Highbinder's most sensitive point Is the purse. Neither assassin Is known to the police.

The largest gas well in the Obio or Indiana fields was drilled on tho Wallace farm, throe miles west of Fostoria O., Monday. The lease 19 owned by the Chicago Oil Company, and the well was started lastQwoek in territory which was considered worthless. It came in at 4 o'clock in tho afternoon, and when the tools were thrown out the workmen had to run for their lives. The drill stem and rope were thrown fully five hundred feet The well is estimated at 50,000,000 feet of gas per day, the largest well In the world. The gas-caught fire from the forge and the derrick has been burned to the ground. The woods aro blazing In many places and flames can be seen shooting up one hundred feet above the tree tops. One curious feature Is that In more than one hundred places water is spouting through the ground to the height of ten to twenty feet. AN AGEKEMEMT RKACniCD.

The Concr«8Monal Situation. The Valparaiso Videtto, Judge Tohnaon's organ, says: The Sunday Chicago papers con. alned another chapter in the lon^ list of disreputable work to bo charged to the Landis bureau of correspondence which hug been eo prominently in evidence during this congressional campaign. There appears to have boon Uttle lhat was too shady for these "journalistic" workers to attempt, and this last effort to bolster up a hopeless cause by a disgraceful tissue of false charges and unfounded attacks on the character of the Valparaiso candidate seems nearly to reach, tho last mark. Such charges as this show the sentiment back of it and indicate clearly that it will not be safe to nominate a candidate backed by such Influences. There Is a demand for the advice of cool, calm citizens. Happily Wedded. Wm, Brlxius, the well kaown Fan Jandle blacksmith and Miss Lizzie 3assube, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm.

A Tramp'* FJnd and the ; Remit. When Deputy Sheriff John H. Smith went to sleep Monday night he concealed his pocket book which con. talned $70 carefully within the sleeve Of hie shirt. John has been doing turnkey duty at the jail lately and was sleeping In the jail office. During the night a lodger was brought in and John got up to unlock the doors of tbe jail. In the morning tho lodger ap. poared especially anxious to get away and left before breakfast. It was not long before John discovered that his pocket book was gone and with U the $70. Diligent search about tho office failed co reveal it and It occurred to the anxious deputy that tho tramp who was so,eager to get nway ml^ht have a criminal knowledge of the whereabouts of the missing wealth; that the pocket book might have fallen out of its place of concealment when ho locked the tramp up and that the latter had found it. This reasoning proved to be true. Last evening officer Tom Morris found the tramp Bitting at the Golden Rule corner lit. erally "drunk and dressed up," and escorted the fellow to jail. The tramp had spent .$55 of the $70 during the day there being but $15 on him when .put in the second time. He had on a new suit of clothes throughout, even to fine hand, kerchiefs in his pockets; had bought a hair out, shave and bath, and rigged himself out In good shape. He also had in his po'cket a ticket for Chicago. Hie sudden prosperty, however, was too much for him, and In celebrating his accession to wealth and affluence took on Jso muoh liquor that he fell again Into the clutches of the law. He gave his name as Mike Norwick, and said that he lived In Chicago. He has placed himself liable to charge of larceny which charge will probably be prosecuted. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. Drilling U Pofttpoiied, Oil well No. 8 was to have been "drilled In" at the Royal Center oil field this morning. Yesterday afternoon the drillers lost the bit of the drill and this break will necessarily postpone the drilling in of the well. A number of towns-people had ar ranged to drive out from here this morning to the oil well, but their trip will thus be deferred until the lost bit li recovered and operations again begin. Little 4-year.old Mable 'Self of Spear street met with a painful aool about 12 o'clock The IlomeortheFrIeDdle«8. The Board of Managers and Trus. tees for the Home of the Friendless have issued a circular letter asking the public to aid them In tfcelr "Two dollar plan."
