Under the monthly payment plan the old gas company made a sneak of from twenty to forty per cent, as consumers wlU eee by comparing payments this year with last, and It was pretty well satisfied. The people have just realized this and their determination to put in the new plant has alarmed the old company. The offloe of the Citizens Gas Com. pany, presented a lively appearanse yesterday. The subscribers realize that the company is now on a safe basis and are paying up promptly. Forty-four subscribers paid yesterday as follows: W. C. Bads, Thos. Welch, D. A. Mlddleton, F. E. Woodllng, D. P. Bowman, L O. Kllborn, George T. Cookburn, C. F. Beam, C. A. Eberllne, R. H. Barous, Stephen Whltmore, J. T. Cockburn. Caroline Taylor, Isaac Sberrard, Fred Bebrens. D. E.

F, Johnson, C. W. Travers. The offloe will be open day aid evening this week as usual and sub Boribers are urged to pay up. There Is no question about success if subscribers will pay promptly. HO>¥ THEY TALK. The Journal representative heard the remarks of one signer and realized that if all the people were as earnest as he there would be no doubt about success. Mr. Thomas Welch who signed for $100 stock, paid his Installment, and said, "I want this to go through. 1 am only working three days a week but I am going to pay my Installments." This suggests that one of the best features about the new company is that It is A PEOPLE'S COMPANY. A look at the books yesterday showed that there were 1,600 signers. Of this number only 468 signed lor one fire only, and most of these will take another fire. 577 signed for two fires and 93 signed for three fires. Thus 1128 of the 1,600 signers are private consumers who have signed for their homes and these 1,228 will regulate and control the whole company and it will thus truly be a private consumers company. But some enemy of the new com pany says that the stock votes. Ol course it does. The law says that it must. Every share of stock is one vote but that doesn't make any differ, ence. These domeBtlo hres control the affairs just tbe same. It is the poor man who has the controlling votes. Take the figures: 458 single fire signers at $50 per fire have $22,900 of stock; 577 two fire signers have $67,7*0 and 93 three five signers have $14,950. These signers thus have $94,550. The total signed is $180,000 so that they have a good deal more than half and can vote a they please. . A LITTLE ADTICE. But It Is all nonsense to sugges that there will be any unfairness This is a citizen's movement. Ou wealthier citizens have paid all ex pauses thus far, three or four thou sand dollars, and are working for thi general.good. Very few, not ove twenty, have more stock than they will need for their homes and stores and these have taken more to help the company along. They are the bes friends the new company has had al along. • Don't let the hired agents of th old gas company mislead you. Stick by your new company. The Journa has always warned you when dange threatened and you can rely on it now Don't listen to those who would oreat dissension but call at the office an pay your first installmert. Decoration Day In Bethlehem. Dewratlon Day will be celebrate at the M. E. church In Bethlehem township.

Mr. and Mrs. Wayne are both new to the theater atrone of Logansport but judging rom the flattering press notices they ave received where they have played hey will soon win the good graces o' 11. The company is under the man- .gement of the popular young manag- r, Howard Wall, with John A.

Sach lady however must be accompanied by one paid 30 cent ticket, lee that you secure your seats early it Patterson's if you have not already done so. Remember the prices are only 10, 20 and SO cents, President Robert'* Speech. At the dedication of the R. R. Y, M. A. building in Philadelphia. Pres- dent Roberts of the Pennsylvania company, spoke as follows: "It seems only a few weeks ago that we met to lay the corner stone of this building. What we air then hoped 'or has been more than realized, And the r,est Is In your hands. You can make what seems good to you of the opportunities offered to you, and in utlTfcing and making them, of value you'will have, I will assure you, the learty co-operation of the officers and dlreotoi a of the company. Whenever men are needed for positions of responsibility, the eyes of the officers are turned toward Institutions suoh> as this, and not to men who spend their evenings in saloons or other places that unfit them for their work. No methods for the moral or .ntelleotual Improvement of the em ployes of the. company have been more productive of good results than the institutions of this kind, which have been established along the line of the railroad. The gentlemanly, faithful, efficient service of the employes is the best evidence of this, and particularly so along the line of the Pennsylvania railroad. It is only those who have a tiigh sente of moral responsibility, such as an earnest member of an aiso. elation as this must have, who can be trusted when off duty as well as when on duty. _ ' The King* Daughter*. On Thursday evening next at the residence of Dr. Coleman the Kings Daughters will give one of the pleasant little entertainments for which this society Is noted. The little drama "American Fascination" by the well known writer Grace Furnls will he presented, also a short musl cal program. The Kings Daughters hav proved a most efficient aid In the charitable work of Logansport, and 1 Is hoped that the friends of the aocle ty may bestow their patronage on thi occasion. Admission 25 cents. The Daily Divorce. Yesterday in the circuit court b; his attorneys McConnell & Jenklnes Wm. J.
