Tile question of high license or low license is an issue in the city campaign though there is no open evidence of that fact. The $250 license became a law by the vote of five oounciluien, nine voting. Of those who voted for it three so out at this election, Tomlinson, Tdusley and Holbruner. If Tousley and Holbrimer are defeated in convention there is no hope of tin; city keeping up the license, since while the high license people might win in the Fifth wprd they would have only four votes in the Council, since Gloitz could not be defeated in the first ward with its big Democratic majority. There is much to be desired but little to be hoped for in the situation. Mr. Gustav Burgmari is making an active canvass for the nomination to defeat Mr. Tousley in the convention and will apparently succeed. A vigorous effort will be made to defeat him at the polls by the Republicans and high license people combined. He is a well known saloon keeper and is of course looking out for his own interest and will work hard: There is a probability of electing 11 high license man in the Second ward to make up for the loss of Mr. Holbrimer but that can only be done by Democratic assistance, and, while there are some good, praying Democrats in the Second ward, they do not always vote the way they pray. The situation is still further embarrassed by the fact that the Pharos, which favors high license, will be compelled to support the nominees -who are in favor of low license, thus allaying the public suspicion as to the views of the candidates. There is no mistaking the, systematic canvass that has been going on in the past ten days and no doubt as to the object of it. How to defeat the accomplishment of it is the question that concerns you. The Democratic conventions meet next Wednesday evening and the Republican Thursday, and for the prosperity of the city it is hoped that the High License Democrats will turn out to their conventions arid control the situation.

It will be remembered that last fall the Youths Companion offered a prize of a large flag to the school in each State in, the Union which furnished the best essay on the subject of the "Patriotic Influence of the American Flag- When Raised Over the Public Schools." The competition aroused by the offer was lively, nearly every nchool in the State as well as others responding. Many pupils of the Logansport schools responded, each one probably feeling in his own consciousness that to his essay would be awarded the pri/.e. Among those who wrote was Benjamin Long, a seventeen-year- old pupil of the High School and to him was indeed awarded the honor of carrying off the prize for Indiana. Yesterday Miss Good-win of the High school received the following letter which explains itself and which no doubt causes pride to the youthful prize winner whose efforts secured for his school the beaxitiful flasif of honor: TIIK YOUTH'S COMPANION, . '. BOSTON, Mass., April22,1801). 1 MIES M. A. (ioodwln, Assistant Prlncspul High School, Logansport, lad.: Dear Madam—We take pleasure in announcing that the essay written by Benjamin Long, on the "Patriotic Influence of the American Flag When Raised Over the Public Schools," has secured to your school the flag for the State of Indiana. We thank you for the interest you have taken in the Hag movement, which we have endeavored to make a part of our national education. May we express the hope and wish that your good influence may bear fruit in the next generation, and that your school may long be known as the nursery of patriotism and statesmen? We shall publish in our Fourth of July issue the names of the writers of the successful essays for the various States and Territories. Yours very trulv, PERRY MASOJ* & Co. New York Mall anil Express. Chairman W. D. Owen, of Indian^ and Congressman Herman Stump,, part of the sub-committee of thg. Joint Congressional Committee on Immigration, resumed tueir search for information as to contract labor importation at Caatlo Garden this morning. Messrs. Owen and Stump went on a little private hunt for news themselves last night, and in response to the suggestion thrown out by Mr. T. B. McGuire, general lecturer of of the Knights of Labor, visited Ihe Italian settlement on Mott and Mulberry streets. He had applied to Inspector Byrnes, who detailed Detective Sergeant Pera?,zo to take the two Congressmen "slumming." In talking over the exploit to-day the Indiana ^Congressman deplored the state of affairs which is allowed to exist in the very heart of the city. A. BOOTBLiACKING PADRONE. One of the first sights they witnessed was in the house of Signer Moresei, on Mott street, the proprietor of which employs an army of bootblacks who go out to work for him on a percentage. When the two law-makers reached the house the the troop of bootblacks were just returning from their day's labor at the ferries and other quarters of the city. They tell came into tffe hallway and passed the boss who is called the "King of the bootblacks." Congressman Owen learned that the "King" pays his subjects $4 per week for their services. "iTvisit was paid to the living quarters, and the Congressmen, passed through many dark. passages, through back yards of saloons, in the rear of towering tenements, where they saw the miserable people stowed away like so many cattle. The advent of a portion of the committee alarmed the people in the neighborhood, who thought that a general raid was in contemplation. When assured that no such a course was to be pursued, the landlords took the two Congressmen in hand and showed them the "elephant." In one of the small rooms visited beds were placed sifle by side to the number of five. The people were in bed when the call was made, and, as is well known, the slumberers are not partial to robes de nuit. Mr. Owen said the odor of the place was sickening. In some of the larger houses the rooms are divided into twc apartments, each presided over by a man and his wife, and these would care for from fifteen to twenty persons. The stove, on which all the meals are cooked is located among the many beds, ,.and furniture is unknown. There were, however, dirty pots and kettles galore. QVX MIJjl. AND BANK. One institution that particularly struck Mr. Owen was a combination gin mill and bank. The patrons would go into the bar and drink till their money was all gone, when they would go into the bank and flaat a loan at .an exorbitant rate ^Tayl We have just placed on sale -sixty of the -well known Gem folding bench clothes wringers at the low price of $4.60, good value at $6.00. You can not afford to be without this labor saving invention at such extremely low prices. Every wringer is warranted for three years. Call and see them at Otto Mein- shausen's 408 Market street where prices will be quoted hereafter that will astonish you. ^ John S. Jarand, agent for the Legal Document Company, was registered at the Johnston house yesterday. He arranged with Manager Dolan for a date late in the season. of interest and resume operations in' the other part of the establishment. In the few cellars visited the rag pickers ply their vocation and sleep and eat as well. The sight of the youngsters pitching pennies in the gutter by lamplight did not impress the Congressional visitors that New York, at least in the neighborhood of Mott and Mulberry streets, WUH a good place to raise a family. A Cloud Bur»t. By Telegraph to the Journal. LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 20.—A cloud burst Struck English, Indiana at one o'clock this morning. The water rose rapidly and Hooded the | streets and many of the houses to a depth of four feet. Within lifteeu minutes the water began to recede with rapidity equal to its rise. Much damage was done to property in English and the surrounding Country. __ . T. «'. A. J»i'leeat«w.

'jj£A jail delivery at Marion Thursday night turned lose on tha world five prisoners who were in on charges all the way from highway robbery to robbing a snioke house. They sawed out and are still at large. That Odd Kellowthip not only lias many followers in this city, but hundreds of friends rind admirers was attested la« night by the fact rliat notwithstanding the rain which fell steadily during the overling, the rink would scarcely contain the crowd which gathered in attendance at the celebration of the seventy-first anniversary of the founding of Odd Ff;llowshi t ) in the United States. The parade which had been plan- nod for the afternoon \yasnecessarily postponed on account of the rain, but all turned outlast night, and the various lodges, I. O. O. F., of this city wore in attendance almost to a cuan—and woman too, for the Rebeckah Degree was also out in force, th« ladies braving the rain and slush and marching from the Odd Fellows temple to the rink with their husbands or brothers. The Mascotte band led the march to the rink and discoursed sweet music on several occasions during the performance of the program. Co!. D. H. Chase was the presiding officer, and conducted the meeting iu his usual dignified manner. Rev. S. W. Brown delivered the invocation, and the reading of the proclamation by Mr. H. J. JSIoSheehy led to the principal feature of the evening, the address of the Grand Master C. C. Binkley, of Richmond. This address was an exhaustive review of Odd Fellowship, from the time of its institution by a few mechanics who met in a tavern in London and banded together for their mutual good until now when the wide spreading order numbers a million and a half members, a quarter of a million more than any civilized secret order in the world. The grand virtues of love, friendship and truth to which is added charity in all things, accepted as the underlying principles of the order weld it into an order of won derful strength and might. For nearly an hour the Grand Master continued this most interesting address, holding the closest attention of his large audiense, and was loudly applauded at the close. The musical numbers were very entertaining, the program being made up of selections by such popular local musicians as Mrs. J. B. Shultz, Mrs. A. P. Jenks and Misses Yda'. Tucker, Cora Britton, Stella Sebastian, Laura MeJHtt and Minnie Bruington, and Messrs. Richardson, Jenks, Bridge, Martin, Baker and Barnhart. A number not on the program, but none the less interesting for that, was a surprise to Col. Chase, in the shape of a magnificent crayon portrait of himself, presented by the Logan Canton, I. O. O. F., of which the Colonel is the commanding officer. Tlie presentation speech was made by Grand Master Binkley and responded to by Col. Chase in a few well chosen words. After the benediction by Rev. Clevinger, tha large crowd went out again into the rain, not regretting the two hours so pleasantly oassed. Engineer's Puzzles WITH HATS. Base Ball Outfits With Boys' and Children's Suits.

Morrisey arrested Hi rani Moore last night for vagrancy and on general principles. "Hi," who is an old jail bird, drifted back to Logansport a few days ago in company with a "parUrier,"' claiming this'time to hail from Denver. As it is the rale when Moore drifts inlo Logansport that something turns up missing during liU sojourn here, Morrisey thought it well to hold him a few day;;. His partner went on to Ohio. ______ The jury in the case of the sraVo against Win.
