IT would seem that there ought to be some way of knowing whether Cerverais bottled up or not. WHEN troops are landed on Cuban soil the war will begin In earnest When is the laodlnj? to take place'? PERU has a military company ready for mustering in. In the first call Peru did not secure representation, and it Is lively that Its company will be one og the first accepted In the second call. IT may be that our army is not strong enough to tackle Cubs. But as Patrick Henry once said: "The battle is not always with the strong. It is with the active, the vigilant, the brave." THE report is current that 10,000 of Uncle Sam's soldiers have already invaded Ouba. This report Is hardly true, Tor the reason that such a large Invading force could hardly get away from the gulf coast without the knowledge of the ever vigilant news- piper correspondent, . ^ SPEAKER HEED opposes the annex- ttion of Hawaii on the ground, taat we need no more territory at this time. He .maintains that our efforts should be directed towards developing what we now possess. Reed is rlfOt In this matter. It would be most unfortunate for the peace and prosperity of this country if those in authority should be lead out in the direction of territorial aggrandizement. ^ __ Our War With Spain. The traditional policy of the United States has bean against the formation ot entangling allances with other powers. That policy should still be pursued. It must be kept constantly in mind that the war •gainst Spain is being waged In the cause of humanity, it is waged to releive a condition that had become intolerable. It Is waged to prevent the further oppression of • people who have been burdened with unbearable loads. The American people must never lose sight of the fact that the war against Spain Is not a war ot conquest—not a war lor acquisition of more territory. A war waged for territorial aggrandizement would be discreditable on the part of the United States. Nobler purposes must dominate and when Cuba Is free from Spanssh domina tlon the war should close.

"Now is the time," he declared, while we are engaged In war, to test the supreme court upon the corporation tax question. A decision against it will not destroy our financial structure, but it would destroy the court. The American people would amend the constitution so that in time of war taxes might be levied upon all interests justly and equitably." ASSOUSCEKMTS.

Governor Wants One in the State's Jfext Contribution of Volunteers - Sons of Veterans Want to Go-Slysterioos Shooting ot V,'. T. Johns—Bad Case of Outlawry- The Tnrawlcy Murder Trial- Horrible Suicide of a Woman. Indianapolis, May 2S.—Indiana's quota of volunteers under the second call will be mustered into the service of the United States by Lieutenant Matt. R. Peterson, of the regular army, who was stationed here as quartermaster and commissary after the first quota had been mustered. Lieutenant Colonel TVill T. May has received notice that he has been relieved as mustering officer. He will join his regiment, the One Hundred and Fifty-seventh Indiana, at cr.ce. It is stated at the governor's office that there will be no hurry about concentrating the state's second quota here. No information has yet been received from Washington as to just how many men the state will be called on to furnish. Senator Fairbanks is using his influence to have three regiments of infantry and one battery made the quota, but it is possible that the call may be for two regiments, one battery and one cavalry troop. Proposed Begiment of Negroes. Governor Mount will try to make a. place for the regiment of colored men formed in this city. Yesterday he sent the following telegram to the Secretary of war: "Will you accept, in addition to Indiana's quota of second call, a regiment of colored troops, completely officered by thoroughly competent colored men? Many of these are thoroughly trained; all are ready and willing." Senator Fairbanks will do all he can to induce the department to take the regiment as a whole. The governor says that nothing- would please him more than to see Indiana represented at the front by a full regiment of colored men, and he feels that the war department oug-ht to accept this opportunity to get a regiment of hardy colored men for service in the south. Sons of Veteran* Wants to Go. Th« Sons of Veterans are pushing their applications for the privilege of forming a regiment, made up of members of the organization in various parts of the state. It is proposed to follow the geographical apportionment suggested by the governor. The organization has between 4,000 and 5,000 members in the state, and is insisting that it ought to be recognized. Charles F. Griffin, formerly secretary of state, now living at Hammond, is backed for the colonelcy of the regiment. Many influ- Return tbe Flag*. There is a unanimity of sentiment In favor of returning the confederate tattle fla?». The idea was first suggested recently by Governor Bushnell, of Ohio." The Fort Wayne Sentinel makes this observation in regard to this matter: "Let the flags be returned. They •land for nothing now. The cause they once symbolized Is d-ead and buried and Its grave abandoned. The issue of the great conflict Is settled, and is accepted by the south. There is no fear of a revival of the 'lost cause' by a return of tne tattered banners of the Confederacy, Let the •veterans who wore the gray keep all re the recollection of their American valor by preserving the flags they followed on many a bloody field, "The flag they have set in the heavens is our flag—the flag of the tlnlon. They love it; they will cherish it : and even now are defending it. Two former soldiers of the Confederacy now hold commissions as major-generals in the armies of the United States. The sons of the south are crowding the ranks t.by thousands, • "What sort of sentiment is that,in view of these facts, would deny our once erring but now repentant and loyal brothers the poor solace of possessing once more their battle flags'- It is not generous, It is not magnanimous, It is not brotherly." Tax Incomes. The debate on the revenue bill in dioatss that congress really favors an income tax. It is afraid of an ad veise decision by the supreme court Senator Teller said yesterday tha< the supreme court had five times BUS tained the constitutionality of the Income tax prior to the decision o of 1894 and that he now had reason to balieve that the court would re turn to its former opinion as to the tegality, of the tax. Senator Gorman •poke in. favor of the lax. . "The burdent ought to DC placed upon the large interests able to pay the U*M : " he said, "instead of a poo the people regardless of their condition.

Noblesville, Ind., May :28.—The circumstances surrounding the shooting of ex-Auditor William T. Johns are still & mystery. The affair occurred near 1 o'clock on the morning of the 19th day of March. As was gathered from the statements made by Johns he was on his way from the station to his residence in the eastern part of the city. When he reached the alley in Fourteenth street, between Logan and Connor streets, a masked man stepped out of the alley and flourishing a revolver told him to put up his hands. He did so, and grabbed the revolver. It went off. the bullet taking effect in his ankle, completely crushing the bone. He succeeded in getting the revolver from his assaila-nt, who ran south along Fourteenth street to Connor, where he jumped into a busgy and drove east to the country. Johns fired one shot after him. which miscarried andcrushed through the front door of a dwelling in Connor street. Johns died from the effects of the wound on the llth inst. It is presumed that he knew who his assailant was, and for some reason or other Sid not care to divulge his name. The only statement which he made, when it became known that he could not live, was a few days before his death, when he said his assailant was a low, heavy-set man. Johns' life was well insured and one company has refused payment on the ground that the wound which caused his death was self-inflicted. WAS A SHOCK TO HIS WIDOW. evail azd he afterward prosecuted them' for trespass. Two of the trespassers were fined, and the other escaped by leaving the country. Since then Couch has received warning that violence was contemplated, tast Monday night a quar-tity of dynamite was thrown under his store and exploded, wrecking the entire interior of the building and destroying the stock. The explosion was so great that it was beard by people three miles away. As yet no arrests have been made, and no one seeems willing to give information leading to successful prosecution, although it is asserted that the identity of the dynamiter is known. Promising Obtlook for Farmer*. Morristown. Ind., May 2S.-The outlook is promising for farmers. The ccreage of wheat is large in this county, and the average yield will be; greater than usual. The harvest will be earlier than usual, and it is likely that there will not be a single field of wheat standing in this county by the la«t of June. Usually the farmers celebrate '.he Fourth of fuly in the harvest field. Volunteers Sign the Koll. Princeton, Ind., May 2S.—The volunteer company subscribed here met and signed the muster roll and forwarded the same to the governor. The company is made up of the finest body of young men in southern Indiana. The company will doubtless be assigned to a regiment at Indianapolis under the late call by the president. But He Is Out of Politics. Anderson, Ind., May 2S.—Rev. Isaac p. Watts, of Alexandria, who was a Republican candidate for the congressional nomination in the Eighth district and was defeated by Mayor Cromer, of Muncie, has announced his permanent retirement from politics.

Winona Lake, Ind., May 28.—By a large majority, voting viva voce, the Presbyterian general assembly decided yesterday afternoon not to inagurate another heresy trial in the case of Professor McGiffert, but to ask him to •withdraw, if he cannot square his views with the church's standards.

Display of Her Husbaad's Skull In Court Gives Her Hy*t«rics. Richmond, Ind., May 28.—In connection with the Thrawley murder trial, a very unfortunate circumstance occurred at the Huntlngton hetel. Mrs. Netttie Shoemaker, the widow of the murdered man, has been here aJ! week in attendance at the trial. The body of her husband was exhumed and decapitated without her knowledge, and when the skull was presented as evidence in the trial Mrs. Shoemaker was not in the court room. Later, while at the hotel, she obtained one of the local papers giving an account of the trial, and when she read of her husband's skull having been in court she became hysterical, ard was completely prostrated. A scene was created at the hotel and considerable excitement caused. At the time of the murder Mrs. Shoemaker was so thoroughly shocked that it was feared for some weeks she would lose her mind. MODEL INDIANA COMMOTTT. Would Be Better if a Few of Its Xotiibles Jo>t Xow Were Dead. Danville, Ind., May 28. — The community in the vicinity of New Winchester is much exercised over certain forms of lawlessness. A few months ayo Jacob Couch, a peaceful citizen and a merchant, was paid a. visit cue Sunday evening by three young men, who broke into his stable, turned out a call »ncl shot and stoned.the animal until it nearly dead. He protected without port of the committee on bills and overtures submitted on Wednesday: "That the assembly, in a spirit of kindness no leas than in devotion to the truth, counsels Professor McGiffert to reconsider the questionable views set forth' in his book, and if he cannot conform his views to the standards of our church, then to peaceably withdraw from the Presbyterian ministry." The last hour of the morning session •waaa occupied with the report of the committee on temperance. The usual recommendations were made, but tfte committee recommended no action on the several overtures regarding Princeton university. This did i>ot satisfy the •whole committee, which offered the following, which was adopted with ashout: "The assembly calls upon all parents and teachers to exercise increased diligence and watchfulness over themselves and tho-se committed to their care in respect to intemperance, in order that our homes and schools may be purged of the evils of intemperance and the drink traffic be driven from our land, and this without reflection upon any collegiate institution/^ Bank Transferred to Xow Men.
