Supromo Court yesterday decided in favour of the State of Indiana in tho Big Four and other railroad tax cases. It was hold that the assessment of railroad property by a State Bourd of Tax Commissioners was opon to no conBtitutional objection, and the Supreme Court sustained the Indiana court. Justices Uarlan and Brown dissented. About 115,000,000 in taxes for the years 1891, 1892 and 1893 is affected by this •- decision. Of this amount about $12,000,000 has been paid Into the county treasuries by the railroad. Some of the companies have paid their taxes in full under the rule of the State Tax Commission, others have paid two-thirds or one-half of their amounts, and others have not paid anything. To the total amount affected could be added about |1.000,« 000, which would represeat the penalty attached by the Auditor of State for delinquency. Some of the money has passed through tho hands of the State and has been applied on the debt. A portion of It is still In the hands of the counties, having been paid in under protett. To learn the amount paid by each railroad It would be necessary for county officers of the nlnety.two counties to make reports. Added to the Importance of the decision is the fact that other States have adopted the Indiana laws for assessment, which makrs the ruling of as much interest to these States as It Is In Indiana. Paynenu at (be Oai Office Yesterday. There were twenty-four aignera who paid yesterday at the office of the new gat company, nine of these on first Installment also. They were: Peter Fries, August 0. Prosoh, C. L. Alford, Michael Morrisoy, H. J. Law. renoe, Rehwald Bros., George P. Washburn, George Muloahey. P. E. Weise, Charles W.. Garrett, Horatio Thornton, John A. Hawkinsa, Mary Eloher, Mrs. Mary E. Condon, Robert Green, John E. Geyer, Anna C. Thomson, George Wlntell, Ludwlg< Foster, G. C. Elkelberner, P. M. Shank, Michael Klehl, Joseph Goas. This morning about one o'clock a fearful cry of misery was heard by residents in < that neighborhood aparently coming from tbe Cioott atreet bridge. With the cry there were also sounds of a fierce struggle. Strangely enough no Investigation of the matter was made. In due time the personage giving vent to thete horrid cries reached tbe Market street bridge and while crossing there the attention of merchant Policeman Charles Wecht and Ed Jones was attracted. They investigated and found a man stumbling- across tbe bridge from the West Side bleeding from a fearful cut in his forehead. The man, a German, was able for a few moments to talk intelligently. He said that he was at the Pennsylvania station waiting to go to Chicago. That while waiting be wae approached by a medium sized man with a mustach and a straw hat who persuaded him In his ignorance of surroundings to go the West Side. At the west bridge he was hit by a stone, and his assailants wanted to throw him into the river. He resisted then and broke away. Patrolman ;Wecht took the man to the office of Drs.. Shultz & Hothor- ington. It was found that his skull was frightfully fractured, a portion larger than a dollar being removed by tho surgeons. Tho man was then removed to St. Joseph's hospital. While the injured man possesses groat vitality it is thought tbaa his injuries are of a fatal char acter. Ho is a stranger here. Ho told tho private patrolman thn,t ho wns a carpenter trying to get to Chicago. Papers found on his person indicate that his name is Karl Trebor, of Sheyboygan, Wis. bicycle pedals; third, revolver. The five mile heat was watched with great interest owing to the fact that each of the starters had expressed the belief that he would be the first man over the tape. There were five starters. 0. Cline, Herr, Grant, R. Cline, and West. Otto Cline and West set a hot pace for the first mile at the end of which West loft tho track. Tho pace was made warmer with each succeeding circle of the track, Rene Clino holding the bunch wall in hand in the eighth and ninth laps, but on the last stretct Cbaa. Grant shot out from the roar and distanced the othero by aix yards, winning first prize, a gold watch. Rene Cline finishing second and Otto Cline third. The other prizes were a bU cycle lamp and bicycle boll. Time 17:31}. A large number of our local wheelmen rode over on their wheels and the pike was alive with • scorchers". The races were started by Arthur Keesllng and the judges wore Tom Dillon, E. J. Snider and A. O. Arm. strong, editor of tho Camdon Expositor. It is likely that the club will give a similar tournament at tho Driving park soon. THE REVEREND WRITES. Her. Dr. Marili DUcnMci From tho Kant Point* 1'ertluent to Pvlltlr* and Religion, and Incidentally the Weather. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., May 24. Mr. Editor: A trip eastward from Logansport across the Alieghenies, through Pennsylvania, New Jersey and up tho Hudson river by boat to Albany at this season of the yea-- is delightful. But one thing has marred its delight At Altooaa, Pa., it began to rain and excepting one day it has rained more or less e«ch day up to the present. Everywhere the country looks beautiful. Proapects for grass and wheat crops could not he more I questions as to the vigorous TOUR NAME IN PRINT. stopped Offilic Trnlii. A sensational and rather unusual accident occurred on second No. 10, Conductor Berry, last night. On board tbe train was Daniel Lynn, an old soldier en route from the Nation' al Soldiers' Home at Leavenwoith, Kaus., to the Home at Dayton, 0. The old man was somewhat Inebriated and when he started to the rear of the oar up about North Judson several people on the oar kept an eye on him. He evidently mistook the door for which he started and stepped out on 'the rear platform. Several men rushed to the door, but It was too late to save him. He had stepped off the platform. Conductor Corey Berry was at once notified and the train backed back to the spot, The old man was found lying In the ditch nearly covered with water. He was assisted on board, and upon arriving here at 12:30 was taken to the office of the company's surgeon, Dr. J. B. Shultz. It was found that his right thigh was broken, besides which he had received numerous outa and bruises and a shaking up, all told a very serious thing for a man of his age, he being probably 60 years of age. Ho was removed to St. Joseph's hospital. IMnu of a Fenoual Character Con* earning Loganiporur* and Their Friend* Misses Ollie and Minnie Brosler and Mlso Minnie Veal are visiting at New Castle.

LIZZIE W. BEOTTN, See'y. The duck suits at the Bee Hire are tailor made and of fast colored ma promising. I passed over part of the section of Pennsvlvania since then desolated so largely by the rains and floods. Returning I expect to see something of the destruction it wrought in the valley of the Junlata. But apart from the floods there rains were greatly needed from the summit of the Alleghanles all the way to this place. Eastern Pennsylvania has had some rain, but not enough; New Jersey and New York none for weeks. Especially in this section of New York drought has prevailed, vegetation has suffered. The rains of the last few days hava been a benediction to farmers and gardeners. Conversation with gentlemen all along tbe line of my journey elicited the one statement as to business. It Is the one story of depression, and the grand difficulty of making collections everywhere. I find men far more pessimistic than there is occasion to be. Thero ia altogether to much disposition to talk things down and not to talk thorn up. I have found no one of either political party who has either confidence or hope in the present Congress. I infer from what I have thus gathered that public feeling' this way is that no action of Congress can inspire confidence. It is too late. Confidence la evidently lost in the integrity of the present administration. I do not write this from any political bias. I only chronicle what seems to mo tho existing Impression as I have gathered it from intelligent mbu oi both parties and of various sort? of business and diiTorent professions. 1 have met ministers find business men hero from Maine to California and they agree in opinion. The worst phase of what I havo just stated is that no ono scorns confident of an oarly return to our former prosperous condition. Things rimy continue as they Jare — *and become worse. That Is the mort favorable thing as to the immediate future I learn. But not a few believe thing will be worse before they are bette and this latter feeling- I found mor prevalent in Now York and vicinity whore I spent 'our day?, than in an other place I visited. How far thos Impressions thus gathered reflect th facts of the oase 1 can not say — bu they are topics of current oonversa tlon everywhere and are the univer sal opinion. This la a good place at this time tc feel the pulse of tbe public in man; respects. Two great religious bodie gravity. Never before have I seen the financial condition to much to the front in such gatherings as it i« this time. But the spirit is determined and hopeful. Both gatherings are largely attended. but each most §o from the eastern States. The spirit of both is earnest, grave and thoughtful. Questions ot great interest are before tbe General Assembly growing out of controversies within the Presbyterian body, but it looks to me as if they will settle those uu fortunate agitations now, and henceforth their great power b» centered on their great work in the Kingdom of Christ. The Baptists are fortunate in having no controversies in their body, but they have pressing- prosecution of their work. Between the delegates to the two bodies there is much fraternal feeling. Many of them are to be seen in the sessions of the body to which they do not belong when they ought to be in their own. Youre, W. H. H. MARSH. ADDITIONAL IX>CAL», McConnell & Jenkines law office ia are in session here. The Presbyter!* an General Assembly and the conven tlon of Northern Baptists. Representative ministers and laymen of these two great bodies are here from all parts of the north. Many prominent business men are here delegates to these bodies. Both bodies raise large sums of money. The missionary and educational work of these bodies call for large sums of money annually. The depression of business has told very seriously on the amounts raised. Both close the fiscal year heavily in debt. The outlook on the future In determining the amount to be raised causes the present business condition to bo discussed, both in general convention In committees and in addresses. Possibly there is no better place or occasion than this to obtain a candid opinion as to the existing condition of things. It ia a great question confronting churches and .ecclesiastical bodies. Here one sees in being improved by the addition thereto of a steel ceiling. The ladies are perfectly delighted for they can purchase beautiful duck suits for |2.48. at the Trade Palace. Remember the ice cream social at the rink Tuesday evening 29th inst Amlaslon free. Cream 5 cents. Cake 5 cents. There was an exciting runaway Oft the Market street bridge yesterday afternoon which resulted in a badly smashed buggy. Bring your families to the rink Tuesday evening and et joy the cream, cake and berries and thereby contribute to a worthy cause. Misa Emma Gilmore, daughter ot Mr. and Mrs. Pete Gilmore. colored. was married to Jas. W. Hall, son of Mrs. L. W. Ratliff, on last Tuesday. Friday evening at tho office of Justice Walters, that magistrate official- ing, Miss Emma Ollinger and Benj. Griffith both of the East End were united in marriage. Make your annual contribution to tho memorial fund by attending- the ico creara social Tuesday evening and get a good dish or cream, cake and. strawberries. Proceeds to go to help to defray expenses of Memorial day. Yesterday was tho date of the regular-monthly e.vaminatioa of teachers. Tho examination was conducted at tho High school by Supt. Gardner and a large number of teachers underwent tho ordeal. Probably tho only excursion and picnic of tho season will be that oi: Mexicar war veterans at Lake Cicott " June 8 next. Let all the people rich and poor, snatch ono day of enjoyment away from the grind of Hard Times. The Junior Charity Club which held an entertainment at St. Vincent hall last Wednesday night for the benefit of the Home for the Friendless yesterday turned over to the managers of the home nearly $19 as the net proceeds of the entertainment. Tbe drill at well No. 3 in the Royal Center field, reached oil bearing sand last evening at a depth of 1,072 feet. The drill was. stopped and work wae suspended until Supt. Neely could notify the parties interested of the progress, that they might be present to witness the drilling In of the well, which will probably be Monday morn. ng. Earl Stewart and family are moving 1 nto their pretty new residence on Railroad street. This house was built .nd the occupants moved in ia exactly hree months from the day whioh witnessed the beginning of the demoli- ion of the old residence, and the ransltlon from the old to the new was remarkably expeditious. The ew residence is very convenient in ts plan and makes a most comfortable ome. Mrs. Stewart designed tbe rranjjement herself and tbe room* re so arranged as to make the most domestic convenience. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart will probably give a house warming" ere long. Tailoring
