The Vliaro* to Get Ont of tlio Grover tie Tolls Another "Which H From-plly Nailed—Public Sen- meiit Disgusted IVltli the Organ of Democracy. There was nothing to say when when Johnny Grover jumped into the ring like Loucks and Beam and knocked 'em out, there was nothing truthful to say and so in a harmless rage the evening hoodwinker attempts again to deceive the public by insinuations, one asking, Is it any wonder that the Journal is losing subscribers? Just to show up this disreputable insinuation and to show the great boom the Journal is having, the following affidavit of the city circulator of the Journalis published: AFFIDAVIT. STATE OF INDIANA, CASS COUNTY, ss: I, Henry F. Jox. city circulator for the Logansport Daily Journal being duly sworn upon oath depose and say that the circulation of the Logansport Daily Journal has steadily increased for t-ho past year; that there were 41 new subscribers added in September, 1S92 and 89 in October, 1892 up to this date and that the losses from deaths, removals and other causes in these two months did not exceed 12. HEXKYF. Jox. Subscribed and sworn to before me this loth day of October, 1392. Witness my hand ane notarial seal [seal] CHAS. B. LASSELLE. Notary Public, Cass Co., Ind. The Journal has sought to discuss county,. State and national affairs without attacking any one personally. It has sought to engage in argument and the presentation of fact. It has appealed to the intelligence of the public. It has been met by evasion, personal attack, misrepresentation and appeals to prejudice. That this should occasionally disgust is not remarkable and the public will pardon strong language when patience ceases to be a virtue. The insulting, arrogant, snobbery of the Cass county democratic ring should be rebuked. The Democratic party should purge itself. The day has gone by when six or seven democrats own the votes of six or seven" thousand. Under the Australian ballot system the rinsr should he given a hint. When Xatnre Nseds assistance it may be best to render it promptly, but one should remember to use even the most perfect remedies only when needed. The best and most simple and gentle remedy is the Syrup of Figs, rornu- facturedby the California Fig Syrup Company. lABOIl NOTES. Points of Locn! :::><! Sia:c interest to and Abo::t the Ora'aJiSza- tlon*. Typographical Union No. 196 meets this afternoon. The Journeymen Butchers of Indianapolis are making efforts to form a union of their craft. Tanners and curriers of Milwaukee are still on a strike and firm as ever. •Over 900 men have been out for the last six months. Striking Chicago boiler-makers are talking of starting a co-operative shop and have been promised support of many unions. The grand march of the laundry girl's ball of this city will be led by the members of the laundry girl's union and their escorts. It is expected that Mayor McGinley of Lafayette, will be in the van- gard at the grand march of the laundry girls ball on Oct. 19th. Ten thousand men in the Wales tin industries are out of work, owing to shut downs, and many of ihem are emigrating to the United States. The strike in the iron industries at Catassanqua, Pa., is ended. The Amalgamated Association and manufacturers have made a settlement. Two out of three of the militia companies of Nevada hayo decided to disband. The use of the militia in labor strikes is the cause assigned. The writer acknowledges the receipt of a directory of the Trades and Labor unions of Lafayette compiled by J. P. Hancegan and Chas. W. Ebel. Mr. and Mrs, D. F. Kennedy of Indianapolis will be in attendance at the grand ball to be given by the laundry girls of this city at the rink Oct. 19.

The costumes to he worn by the Laundry Girls of this city at their grand ball Oct. 19th are said to be elegant. No doubt the ball will be the grandest ever held in Logansport. Pres. Gompers sent his regrets at not being able to attend the ball of the laundry girls union on Oct. 19th at the rink, but sent one dollar for a ticket just the same. The Trades and Labor Assembly of this city is the only central body of labor in the United';States that has a female secretary, and the laundry girls union of this city feel proud of the fact that a member of their union, Miss Sadie Rogers, enjoys the honorable distinction. On Wednesday evening Oct. 19th, there will be an open meeting of workingmen held under the auspices of the carpenters and teamster's unions.

A FINE EECEPTION GIVEN BI LO&LXSPOBT REPUBLICANS TO THEIR CANDIDATE FOR COXGEESS. -re William Johnston Delivers an Able and Exhaustive Address on tlie Issues Sow Before the Fnb- llc—The Kink Crowded to Hear Him. Judge William Johnston of Porter county, republican candidate for Congress, concluded a week's campaigning in this county with an address at the rink last evening. At. a. little before eight o'clock the always ready Young Men's Republican Club led by the drum corps marched to the Murdock hotel and escorted Judge Johnston to the rink where a large audience had assembled to hear him. When the escort arrived the rink was well filled and at the hour for the opening of the meeting the large building was filled, many standing. Hon. W. D. Owen ia a few well chosen words introduced Judge Johnston who began as follows: We are again in the mids'; of a great contest to determine the policy of the government for the ensuing four years. It is not party advancement or individual'preferment but the welfare of the people that we must look to and minister for. All ambition however laudable should subordinate itself to the commoa welfare of the masses. It is not a. contest of sections or religious creeds. It should be a friendly contest between the adherents of our own common country who dwell together as neighbors and as friends, who associate and deal together without a care for or thought of the political predilections of each other, who respect one another none the less because they dilJer in sentiment in creed or in opinion. Eanh o! the great national parties has held its convention adopted its creed and published it to the world. By scrutinizing these we learn what each promises to the country, if placed in power. Judge Johnston then entered into the issues of the campaign, taking up the wildcat money plank of the Democratic platform. "In 1833," he said, General Jackson succeeded in destroying the United States Bank, an institution which was furnishing a safe, honest currency to the people, and substituted for money which was at par all over the country tae system which came to be known as red dog, blue pup, wild cat, shinplaster, State Banks.' 1 "This currency which was worthless awa3 r from home and depreciated at home, continued until 1863, when the Republican party imposed a las of 10 per cent, on btate bank circulation and drove it-'out of existence. "It is this tax which the Derc-.ocratic platform pledges itself to remove.". After an extended and forcible discussion of this currency Judge Johnston turned to the. tariff, introducing the subject as follows: There is another great problem that is agitating the public mind. That is how best to secure the necessary revenues for the government, and, at the same time avoid hardships and preserve the welfare and prosperity of the country. About four hundred million dollars is annually required for this purpose. This fact confronts us no matter in what direction w>3 turn, no matter which party is in power. Intoxicating liquors and tobacco may well contribute a large sura towards removing this burden: because they are luxuries: they are not necessury to life or comfort. But it is quite manifest that tne largest share of this, needed money must be raised by tariff taxation, or import duties. The problem then resolves itself into this Shall our income be raised from a tariff levied upon foreign products seeking a market here, having In view revenue only; or whether, in imposing this tariff we shall be mindful, not alone, of the revenue produced, but shall -see to it that duties are so levied as to be a protection and defense to our own industries against foreign cheap labor competing industries. The Republican party believes the lattpr to be the true policy. Judge Johnston entered into an able and convincing discussion of the tariff showing the benefit it ha,d been and was to America; that the monopoly of the foreign manufacturer without American competition vras the most onerous monopoly America had to fear; that such a monopoly invariably made the price to the American higher than the original cost of the article with two or three tiroes the cost, added for the manufacturer monopolist. He then showed the fair- cess and equality of tariff legislation; that it was fixed to protect American workihgmen in American wages and not for the capitalist. ^i'est in order Judge Johnston discussed the force bill reading what was demanded under it as follows: '•We demand that every cifeen of the United States be allowed to cast one free and unrestricted ballot in all public elections and that such ballot shall be counted ana returned as cast; that such laws shall be enacted and enforced as will. secure tc every citizen, be he rich or poor, native or foreign bora, white or black, this sovereign right guaranteed by the Constitution. The free and honest popular ballot, just and equal representation of all the -people, as well as their just and equal protection, under the law. are the foundation of our Republican institutions and the party will never relax its effort until the integrity of the ballot and the purity of election shall be fully guaranteed and protected in every State." He asked if there was anyone in the audience who would refuse to indorse the sentiment therein contained and of course no one made answer. On the subject of the soldier of the nation Judge Johnston paid a touching and eloquent tribute to the defenders of the nation commencing as follows: There is still another class of our citizens in whom we all should be greatly interested — that is the wearers of the blue. Our soldiers did not enlist for. were not seekers after vainglory. Tbey were not animated by a hope of plumder, or the love of conquest. But putting the blessings of free government above all else, they left their families, their parents, their wives, their children, the comforts of home and the fireside, the duty they owed to those dependent on them for bread and clothing and the rearing to useful manhood and womanhood: nay more, the duty they owed themselves to prepare for the stern realities of later years and turning their backs on all these so necessary, so sacred and so dear to them, and committing to chance the care and keeping of their lives, shouldered their guns and marched to battle in defense of the country and the union of our fathers. On the battle field they won imperishable renown. They cemented the country together by their blood into one common union — such that neither time nor eternity will sever. Their achievements are an inheritence to the nation that money can never repay. They are more glorious than any human crown or any human ambition. Judge Johnston in. conclusion paid a brilliant tribute to the noble aims and purposes of the Republican party and its loyalty to its pledges. His speech was listened to with wrapt attention frequent applause greeting the speaker. A Week of Comedy, Rentfrows Jolly Pathfinders will be at Dolan's opera house ail this week. In speaking of the company the Goshen News says: The first appearance of the • week's engagement of Rentfrow's Jolly Pathfinders at the opera house last night was witnessed by a large crowd. "Below Zero'' was presented in excellent style and kept the audience in a continued uproar of laughter. J. N. Rentfrow, jr., as "Arnold Grubb, under a cloud but a la la," was the most original presentation of a tramp ever seen in the opera house. The pres- entutions through the whole performance were comical, and the singing was good. The company bears the reputation of being the best week stand company on the road. \^-^Soinethinc for Wednesday.

That youngsters do not always see the moral side of an. event is not to be wondered at, and may be due somewhat to their point of view. "Johnny," said the father, "do you know why I am going to whip you?" expecting-, of course, that Johnny "would confess that ho had been naughty and deserved punishment; but the boy promptly replied: "Yes, father, I know. It is becanso you are biffger than I am." The father •let the switch fall and reflected a minute. "Come to think of it, "he said to himself, "that is three-fourths of the reason." Tncn he said, aloud: "You tntij' go tnistiee. John."'—Goldeo Daya.
