Yours Truly, ••PUCK/' DAILY JOURNAL SATURDAY MORNING, OCT. 15. Danger lu the Red Deess. Lafayette Courier: Through the neglect' of the Lafayette police a couple of ladies had a narrow escape near the corner of Third and South streets at 1 o'clock this afternoon. Two men were driving a bull south on Third street. The ladies wore red dresses, a.nd when tho animal saw them he made a mad rush toward the ladies bellowing furiously. The ladies ran in opposite directions, ono seeking refuge in Taylor's livery stable and the other ran across South street and bounded into Brown's -wholesale grocery establishment, frightened out of her senses almost. The animal was right at her heels, having left the other young lady, and a moment later -.vould have tossed her with his horns. The driver had considerable difficulty in getting the enraged animal started in the right direction again but finally succeeded, but the ladies remained within their retreats until the animal their red dresses had maddened, was at a safe distance. There is an ordinance which prohibits the driving of such animals through the streets and specifying that they shall be led but the police make no effort to enforce it. After the affair occurred there was much complaint against the practice. While it continues women and children, especially, are exposed to constant danger. The incident narrated drew a large crowd to the street corners. YOUR !iA3IE IS PRIST. IteuiH of n Personal diameter Cois- ceniini; JLosasiwHooters nnd TlieSj Frlyndh.

The Wabash Plain Dealer speaking of the proceedings at Peru Wednesday gives the roast meats the follow- KS. * ^ ing additional roast: "The swarms of hungry, dirty, insect-inhabited tramps who paused in their transcontinental tours, and. took- a side trip in order that they might sink their incisors into the juicy roast, free as air and Democratic whisky on election day, came up, swept the tables with one hasty glance and then with nostrils elevated, and inflated, shot out of town. Their stomachs, callous to everything from a limbergersandwich to te-n-penny nails, revolted as their gaze turned to the horrible mess, upon which the green flies buzzed merrily as they feasted.""

Frank Jackson of the Pan Handle repair tracks is off duty with a badly bruised finger. It happened a few days ago while he was working.

Over on the Wabashv the. men are getting in big mileage. An engineer stated yesterday to a Journal reporter that when he had his present trip finished he would have in $100 and yet the first half of the month is not yet gone. The business of the Vandalia has so increased the last few weeks that, the company has been obliged to pu : ; on additional switch engines and crews at two or three points. At Terre Haute three switch engines have just been put in service. Indianapolis Journal: Logansport is credited with having the largest and most enthusiastic railroad branch of the Young Mens' Christian Association in the State. The membership meets frequently, has recitations and musical entertainments, and is a very healthy organization. John Mullick, who, for fo^r years has held down the position as sand dryer at the Pan Handle shops, has traded his job for one in Rudolph Berndt's gang, and will be succeeded by Thomas Keever. John is taking this step for the benefit of health as the dust in the sacd house has been injuring his lungs. Chris Hujer, a boiler washer at the Pan Handle round-house, received a severe burn on the right arm .yesterday afternoon. He was temporarily working in the clinker pit and was engaged in cleaning out the ash pan of an engine when the accident occurred. The burn is very painful and will keep the victim away from his work for quite a while. A rear end collision occured early yesterday morning between the first and second sections of freight train No. 96 at Cass station, about four miles east of the city. The caboose and one car of the first section were badly broken up, while the engine of the second, section had her pilot -knocked off and received several other minor damages none of which were of such a nature as to disable her. Passenger train No. 45 due here shortly after 1 o'clock, a. m. aid not get in until several hours, late and train 34 was held here-.pntil the track was cleared which was about 11 o'clock. Nobody was hurt. C. D.- Kerlin, the Pan Handle machinist, was probably the most surprised man in town last Thursday evening. A new Columbia light roadster bicycle was'submitted to him for inspection .by DivCady and asked to giveliis opinion on a certain mechanical appliance , ! on the wheel. After careful"-inspecEon Mr. Kerlin pronounced-it perfect and when questioned -now he liked it he answered tihat it suited him exactly. Dr. Cady then told him that he could have it. llr. Kerlin thought that the doctor was joking and smiled. The doctor repeated his assertion and backed his statement by handing it over to Mr. Kerlin. Those who saw it say that the face of the latter for a moment or two was a study until it dawned upon him that his wife was the donor and that Dr. Cady had been used as,a go- between. The bicycle was a birthday present and cost $135. Tlie Pharos Knocked Oat Kurd. Editor Journal: The Pharos of last evening says: Capt. John B. Grover will lose his vote this year, having changed his residence this week from the Third to the Second ward. While the Captain is a life-loDg Republican he is not taking mu2h interest in the result of the November election. In fact the Captain don't care a snap about Harrison's re-election. This is a lie. I have not moved and I am red hot for gallant Ben Harrison, and anything that I can do to elect him will be done. The Pharos has lied about the surplus, county 'taxes, the postoffice change and the tariff and now it has lied about me. It never tells the truth and any man who gets his political advice from its columns and votes on it is an enemy of his country and will bring ruin and starvation.^ our people. JOHX B. GROVEK. Kesolutsoos ol" Thanks. At a special, business meeting of the Baptist Church, held Thursday evening after n'r'ayer meeting, it was Resolved, That the thanks of this church be, and are hereby tendered to the citizens of Logansport, for their cordial hospitality in opening' their homes to entertain delegates to the Indiana Baptist State Convention.

Wining- in Washing-ton, though its promises are vast, is in its veriest infancy. The production of metals is insignificant The first discovery of the precious metals was made by placer miners along- the Columbia river, and this ground is still worked, by China- men now, with trifling results. Recent discoveries have been, first, in the Col- valla district, Stevens county. It is a mountainous region, an extension of the rich Kootenay country of British Columbia. Silver and lead are found there, but not' yet in such large orprom- ising leads as those north of the boundary. Development-work is being 1 done j there, the ores arc being sent out, and concentrators arc building. In. the Okanagon country, east of the Cascades and west of Stevens connty, silver and gold without lead are found- It is smelting ore, and cheap transportation facilities are needed for the development of the mines. One railroad operator is ready to build from Marcus on the Columbia, north of Colville. along- the Kettle river, to the Boundary creek mines of silver and ffoltl, which show splendid prospects. The Colvill e Indian reservation hinders him from tapping the Okanagon country, and, as we have seen wherever there are similar conditions in other states, there is a strong movement to have the reservation reduced, and the upper part thrown open. The railroad could be built across it as it is, but there is no money in a railroad on reservation land where settlers may not come nor towns spring up.. It is apparent that the reservations must be reduced, in response to this pressure, because it is a vast tract, bigger than some 'large counties in the state, and yet it contains but a thousand red men, remnants of several tribes. The notorious Chief Joseph, who harried several of our generals, is there, and so is 1 -Chief Moses, whose people once inhabited the Okan- agon country before it was "bought,"' and President Grant set aside the Colville reservation for them. An argument used to help to open this land is that the reservation leaves sixty miles of our frontier unprotected. The Spokane chamber of commerce is bending all its energy to the redemption of this border land, and what that body sets out for it generally obtains. The Lake Chelan prospects, so-called, are of argentiferous galena. At least seven hundred claims have been taken, and this summer's work will prove the value of the district, thaujrh all miners qualified to judge of i!; express confidence in its great richness. The .Stchejan bcit of hills, where the ore is fov.ii:;, runs northeast beyond the British b'riter. la addition to the galena, other ore's are found, though not yet in sufficient quantities to excite the cupidity of ths prospectors. But the belt contains more limestone aad white mirblc than the world can use. It is proposed to .build a raiircsul to Lake Che:::?!, whereon tl:a ore can be boated seventy miies, ;vad thsr, currisd by short i'a:l to the Columbia, an'! thur> to the U;-;--'-'- Xorthern railroad at iV-.'nat- chei:.—Julian Ilii'irjh, in U;ir;.vr's -dag 1 - THE world's passenger ears can 1,500,000 j>cople. FAUES ''of one penny per mile are-. char'g-ed, with few exceptions, on the whole system controlled by the Londonv & Northwestern Bail-way Company. THE Canadian Pacific railway willi' exhibit at the world's fair a model passenger train, and also models of the fine-ocean steamers in^that company's service. A LOCOJiOTiTE,' drawing four passenger coaches, has recently done a mile in 303-4 seconds on the Heading-road, wlxicb, would come very near to 100 miles an ^ hour if maintained. THE first railroad in India to' be Tiuilt, and controlled entirely by natives- has been sanctioned by the Indian government. The line will be about thirtvr miles long, in the Hooghly district. THE New York commissioners state that 720 persons were lolled and 1,728 injured on railways in that state during- the year ending September 30, 1891, as;, compared with COS killed and 1,4.34 • injured the previous j r ear.
