IOB TIB SOOTH. _ SJ».aa i a'«s iTcTBDQEWORTH, Agent, aiv THE HAMMOND CONVENTION. The Congressional convention moots today at Hammond and It behooves the Cans county delegates and their friemla who go up this morning to remember that they go as republicans to make the best possible nomination for the republican party. The two candidates ID the field began a contest two years ago which occasioned some feeling. That contest was revived a few months ago and was carried from county to county until ii culminated in the Lake county controversy. It can not he denied that strong antagonism* have been created and tbe attitude of the friends of the can dldates In Porter, Lake and other counties indicate a danger whioh the convention is bound If possible to avoid. It IB not necessary here to analyze the situation in this respect. It Is for the delegates to do this, keeping In mind always that a contest of this sort is generally as disastrous for one contestant a* the other after a nomination. The Journal urges calm, cautious action. It has heard eathueiaets say: "we are going to nominate our man though we mre positive that he will be defeated." Such enthusiasts are to be avoided since the success of the party with an honorable representative Is the principal thing Is be considered. But the convention must not forget that there are five doubtful counties In the district with county and legislative tickets to elect and that these are also to be considered. It Is better that the ambition of one man be defeated than that five counties be lost or even endangered. And so the Journal urges harmony, oautlon, judgment, and most of all the prompt and earnest Indorsement of the nominee of today's convention, whoever be may be. THK Journal publishes this morning tbe call for county delegate organization. As no notice has been given of any meeting of the delegate* and the call has not been received, probably on account of the absence of Chairman Powell, the Journal suggests that the delegates on the train this morning fix a time and place for complying with the official call and that they arrange to meet at some point shortly after the train reaches Hammond. XHB success of the Citizens Gas 'ompaoy depends on the co-operation of every citizen. Its enemies may tell you that the monopolists are going to foble It up but they are not doing it. If the consumers do not come forward that will be the end of It. The email consumers are the ones who must goble it up or there will be no new ;as company. THE Pharos has a habit of asking questions Intended te create an impression contrary to what It knows ihe truth to be. It asks about the itrlps of ground on either side of Erie avenue. Had Its editor stepped to ;he telephone he could have got facts .nside of five minutes and have pub. Wished the truth instead of questions misleading to the public. SINCE Friday 231 subscribers have called at the gas office and settled. This is highly encouraging and the good work should be kept up. There B no reason why any man who signed should not pay. Fuel Is a necessity and the cheapest fuel should therefore secured no matter how difficult it seems to arrange to secure It. TOE lower house of Congress yesterday by a vole of 107 to 71 practically decided to abolish the civil service commission. Tbe commission is not yet abolished but the mugwumps have been given an awful scare. PAY up your gas Installments today. The Tentb District noddle. Unless the gentlemen can get to. gether ij such a way that a nomination can be made that has not the sus« plclon of fraud the Republicans of the district owe It to the party to nominate a candidate who Is not mixed up In this row. Congressional timber Is not so scarce In the Tenth district, or that now In the field Is not of such superior quality that tbe Interest of the party will be Injured by leaving both these gentlemen out. The thing to do is to nominate a Republican who can command the full strength of the party rote.—Richmond Item. GKOTTO OF In Imitation' of the Famous Shrina at Lourdes. Constructed bjrn Reverent Catholic Frleit In Fulfillment of » Solemn Prayer —An Intereitliiff Keiort (or American Catliollci, [Spooiol Cincinnati (O.) Lcttor.) In the department of Ilautes Pyrenees in Franco, and on the right bank of the Gave do Pau, is situated the town of Lourdes. The last quarter of a century has seen this little town prow into wide celebrity. It has become as famous in Catholic history as Home and Jerusalem, and is yearly visited by throng's of tourists, drawn thither, if Catholics, as dovout pilgrims if Protestants, as curious though respectful sight seers. The original site of the town was a Roman castellum. A feudal castle later dominated the place, and is still seen picturesquely crowning one of the high bluffs of the neighborhood. On the pastures roundabout graze a superior breed of milch cows and great herds of sheep, watched over by shepherdesses. To one of these rustic maids, a pious girl known as B.ernadette Soii- birous, the grotto of gourdes owes its fame. According to the belief of the faithful, the Holy Virgin here appeared to the humble peasant girl, who at her command scooped up the sand where she was kneeling. From this hollow fresh and healing water immediately flowed, though every other spring in the valley is alkaline. The spot soon became known as a place of healing, and attraoted sufferers from near and far. It is now marked by a fine basilica upon the bluff overtopping the grotto, at the consecration of whioh thirty-five cardinals assisted, together with a vast concourse of sight seers and believers. It is dally besieged by invalids and cripples from every quarter of the globe, bringing every form of misery and every degree of faith. Around the shrine are arranged innumerable trophies, such as pyramids of crutches and chains of spectacles, to evidence the cures wrought by faith in the waters and by ardent prayers to the Madonna, whose image stands above the spring 1 , and constantly overlooks the ever-chang- BERNAJDETTE BOUBIBOUS. Ing yet ever-renewed stream of human suffering passing before her. Several other caves near the wonderworking grotto of Massville are to be seen, in which were found relics of the stone age and of the period of the rein- depr. The population of the town, greatly increased since Bernadette beheld the vision in 1868, subsists largely upon the sales of rosaries and other pious souvenirs, Including bottles of the sacred waters, as few depart without carrying away a email phial, and orders Ore constantly received from all parts of the world for portions of the water. Catholics everywhere believe most profoundly in its efficacy, and when unable to kneel before tha historic shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, are content to apply apart of her curative stream at their homes. But to many, Catholics, as well as Protestants, it will be a surprise to learn that a similar fountain exists in this country. It is to be found in Oovington, Ky., under the altar of St. Aloyslns church, and Its origin is similar to that of its famous French original, being founded like th,at upon a vision; though in this case the miracle occurred not to an oh- Bcuro girl but to a priest, Father Blenke, who now officiates In- the church above the grotto. In appearance the sacred spot resembles that at Lourdes as closely as possible, as far as adornment is concerned, though in natural surroundings the two places are widely different. It has been a place of resort for nearly five years, and, though not attracting much general curiosity, is always surrounded from early morning until late at night by» crowd of suppliants. Many believe that it has worked wonderful cures of mental and bodily ills. Though little known as an object of veneration beyond its immediate neighborhood, it has been acknowledged by Pope Leo XIII., who grants to all visitors who recite prayers and receive the sacraments at the grotto a special dispensation of grace. Thus stamped with the seal of the pontiff's authority,' it is entitled to a wider publicity than it has heretofore received, and it is a wonder that Catholics everywhere have so little knowledge of it, as a place of prayer and meditation, as well as of healing. Even to the Protesant a visit to the Covmgton grotto is Interesting and. impressive. It is found in a neighborhood little according with the idea* usually coupled with the name grotto. This usually suggests a cool hollow among rocks, shaded from the sun and remote from noise, and disturbed nnlv.hy.thft tannd of faJHnff W»BW. jCoinlnfr upoh'ttio largo churon »t flev- 'enth and Bakewell .streets in West 'Covinjrton, with its larjje brick school- liouso adjoining 1 and the pastor's residence near by, this idea of the grotto seems little likely of realization. The church has received a lar^e measure of prosperity from the wonderful reputation of the sprinp, having upon its register upwards of fifty thousand visitors' names, and the register beinf? adjacent to a contribution box into which few neglect to drop their offerings of faith and gratitude. Between the church and the three-story schoolhouse (where instruction is given to a larpe number of children, mainly Germans) runs a broad walk leading from the street to a covered doorway projecting from the church wall. Above the street entrance is placed a sign in German lettering, directing attention to the ffrotto within. Descending a half-dozen steps to a small landing, another flight leads apparently into the church cellar. Pausing only to notice the framed chromos of Scriptural scenes that decorate this landing, we descend again, and find Highest of all In LeavoCj Power.-. Latest *,. S.

Daily, as the good father asserts, ho receives evidences of the healinfr pow or of the spring. Visitors tell him of wonderful cures effected, while hi? mail frequently contains letters from tbe faithful at a distance who have been benefited by their devout pilgrimage thither. The fame of the waters is constantly going abroad, and of the hundreds who repair to the grotto none fail to dip their vessels into the pool and reverently bear away a portion to their homes. Father Blenke does not sell the liquid, but gives to all who ask. While modest in speaking of himself, he believes in a great future for his grotto and spring, which may in time become as widely famous and as eagerly sought by the devout of his persuasion as its famous counterpart, at Lourdes, QKOBOB S. MCDOWELL. TARIFF FOR FARMERa FATHEB BLENKE. ourselves in total darkness upon a stone pavement. Perceiving the light of a gas jet through a half glass door, we enter, and now hew the sound of falling water as from some mountain spring. The whole scene and its accessories are skillfully arranged to arouse and mystify the senses, and prepare the mind to be awed and impressed. The whole llghtof the place falls upon the scene at the farther end —a cave-like recess, where the rocks recede in perspective, and the murmur of the water falling over them into the pool beneath is the only sound. Against the background of creeper- covered earth gleams tlje white statue of the Virgin, and above her is seen the inscription: "Ergo sum Immaculate Conceptlo." To the left stands a marble altar •nrmounted by a half dozen candlesticks. To the right is a table holding a group of candles, some alight and others extinguished. Before the Virgin kneels a wooden image of the pious Bernadette Soublrous, and the whole ia Inclosed by an iron railing. In the middle of the space stand two rows of pews for the use oi worshiper*. As the eye grows accustomed to the dim religious light the walls are seen to be covered with canvas representing rocks and tree*. The candles upon the table are brought by those who come to kneel In supplication while their offerings burn away. At half-past seven o'clock each morn- Ing mass IB said before the altar by the priest or his assistant. Above the spring is seen the emblem of a heart set In brilliants and surmounted by a cross made of rod glass and with a gas jet burning behind it. This emblem stands out In glowing distinctness in the gloom, and typifies the heart of the Virgin glowing with love for the children of mankind. The origin of the Grotto of Covington was in a dream which occurred to Eev. Joseph Blenke for three successive nights, five years ago. The priest, who was then—tha autumn of 1888—stationed at Four Mile, a small hamlet in Campbell county, Ky., is the typical Roman Catholic clergyman. Waking one morning from a sound sleep, his dream returned vividly to hla mind. It was of a large church which he recognized a* St Aloysius, with a grotto beneath it like the famous •f th» IN THK GBOTTO OF COVINQTON. shrine at Lourdes. Though he had never seen either, he recognized both. The next night, and again the third night, the vision returned; and, strange £> say, while still wondering at the Benefit* Arising from Protootlon Bom* Market, There has been no time In the history of thl» country when the whole population has been BO interested in the subject of tariff legislation oa at present. And, Indeed, how could it be otherwise? There Is not an interest in a single state in the union, certainly in no northern state, which is not imperiled by the provisions of the Wllson- Voorhees bill. It is not a bill for protection and creation, but for destruction. In New England and other eastern state* the effect of its passage cannot fail to be disastrous. There la no possible •scape from the closing of their great mills and factories, wiping out many millions iu vested in such plants, or largely reducing the daily wages of the employes to the baae of foreign labor. Either alternative U fraught with industrial ruin and Individual distress. Until recently the great west, and especially the northwest, has not felt, sensibly, tbe benefit* of the tariff. The indirect value ha» existed, but It was not so plainly noted. The main Interest* of that section have been agricultural Coal, Iron and lumber, which play so important parts in the development of a new country, have been fully protected, but until recently Canada has not been able to compete la these so as to cripple home development Other benefit*, like the maintenance and increase of home markets, were not so distinctly noticed by tbe masses of the people. Recent years have brought a great change. As a community grew from the woods the enterprise of its makers sought manufacture!. They built mills for lumber, for flour; tanneries, furniture factories and kindred industries followed. When this increase was not rapid enough they sought capital, welcomed labor and took pride in seeing stumps disappear from the streets before the march of Improvement* These industries were established by enterprising men from the east who brought with thorn their own capital and the surplus funds of their neighbors. They saw good openings where their capital could develop towns to their profit and to that of both section*. Idle money and keen business men have wrought the marvelous, mafic change so prevalent all through tha west. What, under free trade and the old world conditions, would have required a hundred y*ar* has been effected in a decad*. Farmers have found that nearness to these growing towns enhanced the selling value of their lands and of every cropther could raUe. If wheat was too low they oould sell milk, vegetables and stock. These purchasers were home buyers and the railway freight was saved to the mutual advantage of the worker in tbe shop and the farmer on his land. The result is that tbe great west and northwest is being honeycombed 'with growing towns, eaoh ambitious to add yearly a* many new establishments as their rival and neighbor, and to grow in population, buildings and material prosperity. Many of these Industries ar« dependent for a secure margin of profit on exemption from equal competition with the cheap labor of Europe and Asiatic nations. The farmers are just baglniilnff to realize that when these establishment* stop their home market i» mined. Not only that, the very consumers then out out of work will hav* to turn to the farm to eke out a bare existence and become active competitors. They begin to see that when an article is sold in our markets, as calico, for instance, at much less than the- import duty, the democratic claim of the tariff being a tax on and increase of the price does not work. It is becoming plain to them that- when they pay money for foreijrn goods they arc paying- interest on a foreign, plant, wages to foreign workmen,. freight across seas to foreign steamy ships and railway freights across the; continent besides. They see that the freight business, will bo good for the railroad! and/ steamships, but that-it will not be veryi good for their own interests. They can pay the home manufacturer in silver dollars. The foreigner must hare gold and it will have to go- abroad to pay him. Some wid>*wake farmers already] say . that -the -CTilMSi bill should bej termed: "A bill -to Incraaae railways freight* and kill homo markets." Instead of selling thoir farm products, from the wagon box they will hare to? send them off on the railway, seeking 1 some locality where there are more, consumer* than producers and sell^ them at price! fixed by European demand. They also see that the railway Uf bound to take a big slice ont of every shipment and that they will get only] what i* left after middlemen, railway*,' expreis companies and steamship* hav*» taken their generous toll. : These are the people who are Ju*l^ now waking up to tbe fact that that b**t market is that from the wagon] box to the householder, and not thaU which pays big toll to carriers and middlemen. A Fraction! Illustration. Now see here, my friend, Ut n» loole at this tariff matter from the practical farmer** side. Tbe Import duty on^ calico ia four cent* a yard. Yon can buy; American calico—jnst a* good a* English—for just that figme. You oan, get fair American oalioo for aabad*» le*s—the very b**t grad«* range from, four and one-half to six cents.
