THE INDIANA PRINTED EVERY WEDNESDAY PERSOITAI, MEirrioir. -BY MESSENGER PUBLISHING CO. TERMS—$1.00 a Year, in Advance. Address all communications to "The Messenger,'' Indiana, Pa. WEDNESDAY, APEIL 17, 1901 SOUE of the politicians of both parties appear to be exercised about "ballot reform." The mass of the voters are pretty well acquainted with the present ballot law and are not specially anxious for a change. The proposition to cut off the circle at the head of the respective tickets is a mistake. The majority of the voters vote Mieir ticket straight and they can do that quickly and satisfactorily by making a mark in the circle. If the voter should be compelled to search his ballot and make a mark opposite each candidate for whom he wishes to vote, there will be a big kick. Life is too short for that sort of thing. If a voter cannot find either of the tickets to his pleasnieut, he can take his time to it and mark each separate candidate for whom he wishes to vote. The people are not lying awake nights thinking of "ballot reform,' 1 and our legislators would do well to let the present law alone. SPUES »I1» WORK. While Governor Stone has been receiving words of praise from every quarter in the commonwealth, his attorney general, Hon. John P. Elkin, is getting his share of credit for the good work being done at Harrisburg by the governor and his cabinet. : During the last week Gen. Elkin has been busy in the Dauphin county court making a determined fight against the representatives of corporations who are seeking to be relieved of paying the amount of taxes that has been charged up against them by the state officials. It has been the practice for years for the wealthy corporations to engage the most expert and experienced counsel to combat the state authorities who levy taxes. They will take their cases into court and by every imaginable means seek to defer the payment of their just share of taxes, or have them reduced. A number of delinquent corporations in addition to those disputing the charges of the state authorities have been fought in court b} 7 Attorney General Elkin, and under his most aggressive and radical policy he has managed to save the state many hundreds of thousands of dollars. During the last two years there have been nearly ?900,000 collected through this means, and of the 300 cases which Attorney General Elkin now has on his list, some of which are being tried almost every day, it is expected that Gen. Elkin will add at least £600,000 more to the revenues of the state. TAX REFORM WINS. Insurance Commissioner Durha.ni, of this city, another member of Governor Stone's cabinet, has been congratulated on all sides within the last few days over the passage of the bills providing for reform in the matter of the assessment of taxes in Philadelphia. For years there has been a system in existence under which certain influences through appointments made by the board of judges have had control of the assessment of real estate for the purpose of taxation. These influences have been exerted time and time again in political campaigns to block reforms and they have been such as to call forth criticism from many Quarters. The outcome was an agitation for the election of members of the board of revision of taxes by the people, instead of having them appointed by the judges. Under this plan it is believed that there will be an opportunity always for the people to correct any abuses that may develop in the system of assessments of real estate. After a very hard fight the legislature passed the bills, one to repeal the present law, and the other to establish a board which shall he elected by the people. While the political opponents of Commissioner Durham have been calling these bills "ripper" bills, they have failed to deceive the people, who can be safely trusted to elect competent and reliable men to these very responsible positions. BRADFORD STALWART AGAIN. Bradford county is again in the ranks of the stalwarts, and has set its seal of approval upon the principles of majority rule. This was decisively expressed in the Republican county convention, which was held in Towanda Thursday afternoon of last week to ratify the local primaries of Saturday previous. Last August Bradford went insurgent and passed resolutions instructing-the legislative candidates to use every honorable means at Harrisburg to defeat Matthew Stanley Quay or any one proposed by him for United States senator. This score was reversed last week, when, by a vote lacking but five of the 160 delegates, resolutions were passed indorsing the administration of Governor Stone, Senators Quay and Penrose, the Republican state platform and the principle of majority rule. THE HOME NEWS. Golf at Indiana. As soon as the weather permits Indiana's golf clnb will open its season, lif gotiations are at present nuder way to secure the same grounds as were used last year, these being on Judge White's Croyland. Thus Indiana is promised a gay and fashionable amusement for the coming season and many, many people, who do not at present know what a foozle is will learn the meaning of that and other proper golf terms. I,AST PAYMENT READY. JacJt <V Taylor Ileceive Hie Mon^y Jo Cazapleie tlie Sale of sne \Vi«I«iow- son Tract, Cauoe Tow-iislsij). Last week, Jack & Taylor, attorneys for J. H. Weaver & Co., of Philadelphia, received a check for some $40,000... This large sum is the last payment on the famous Widdowson timber and coal tract in Canoe township, containing about 1,000 acres. The total amount of cash involved is over §60,000, of which a first payment of $20,000 had already been j made. j With this sale the last large timber j tract of the county is disposed of, and of j the hundreds of thousands of acres j —Charles Wilson, of Saltsburg, re- of timber which formerly covered the ] tarnef i home Monday morning from a and filled the rivers with raits < Vi .. ifc to f riends an( } relatives in Indiana. not one large piece remains.

Books and son Stanley are spending some days with friends in this place. —Miss Anna Nicholson, Third ward, is convalescing from a serious attack of catarrhalfever. —Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Stewart have returned from their winter home at St.- one large piece makes business and therefore there is no place for sentiment. The laud purchased by J. A. Weaver & Co., is underlaid with coal and is worth a large amount of money. It is said that John E. DuBois, of DuBois, the well-known millionaire timber dealer, offered Weaver & Co., $100,000 for the tract almost at the outset of negotiations, but the offer was refused. From a semi-authoritive source it was .earned by a MESSENGER reporter that the Widdowsou tract will be held for uvestment and that there is no immediate purpose of clearing the land or operating the coal, bufc circumstances alter jases, and in the case of independent dealers circumstances are peculiarly liable to change radically in less than a day. The Widdowson tract was part of the :he late Josiah Widdowsou estate and ;he negotiations for its sale were con- 1 acted by Mr. E. E. Davidson, who is t present staying at Pine Flats with lis wife. The large check is nosv in an Indiana Bank and will be paid over to the Widdowson heirs as soon as Jack & Taylor have passed on the title and this will not be for several days.

The teacher arrived at the school house a few minutes before 9 o'clock, and found nearly all the pupils there, and on the desk one of the most beautiful parlor lamps. Her gratitude for such a gift cannot be ^pressed in words. Two winters have been spent with the same teacher and almost the same pupils, and the four- ;een months spent there will ever be remembered by the teacher with pleasure, and gratitude to the pupils and citizens for their hearty cooperation in all her work. T&e Xew Clitireh Will be Bnilt. From present indications the 020,000, which is to be subscribed before the erection of a new Presbyterian church will be considered, will be fully subscribed before the end of this week. The committees having charge of the subscriptions are meeting with most gratifying success. Many of the subscriptions call for $500 and there is apparently not the least doubt that all the money needed will be immediately forthcoming. —Mr. and Mrs. Frank Glover, of East End. Pittsbnrg, are visiting the latter's parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. S= Cunningham. —Wallace, a son of Commissioner and James K.

About the latest thing in fortunes in Qngland, belonging to heirs in this ountry, is the Robinson fortune, and the heirs are supposed to. reside in the western portion of this State. The Phil- delphia Times in speaking of this latest swindle, says: "Information that William Robinson, a bachelor Englishman, died fifty years ago leaving a fortune in the Bank of England now amounting to $30,000,000, aas" reached a more or less numerous •u-jny of Robinsons in Western Penusyl- •ani'a, who have already held a meeting it the Seventh Avenue Hotel, in Pittsburg, to take measures to secure and share the comfortable inheritance. "The story sounds familiar. The bach- lor uncle, the millions in the Bank of England, the brother who wasn't a jachelor who emigrated to America and .eft a large number of poor but honest descendants, have figured in this oft-told tale times without number. The* only change in the present story is the substitution of the Robinson name for a score of others that have done duty formerly. "After the Robinson agent has been in London and returned, the Robinson millions, if they exist, will still remain in the Bank of England to fool a lot of would-be heirs known by other names than Robinson. In the meantime the Robinsons of Western Pennsylvania will have wasted some good money in pursuit of a will-of-the-wisp fortune, the aforesaid money going to pay the services of some professional attorneys who will make a business of fleecing the gullible heirs of a mythical inheritance which always disappears upon investigation and reappears whenever a new crop of fortune-hunting fools can be discovered. $3O,OOO,OOO for the Robinsons. Descendants of William Robinson, who died intestate in England in 1835, leaving a fortune said to be $30,000,000, held a reunion at Pittsburg Thursday and have about decided to send an attorney after the money. Among those interested are several Indiana county people. Thomas, John and William Robinson, of Bolivar, and W. M. Robinson of Biairsviile Intersection. James Grossman, of Biairsviile, is secretary of the association and another meeting will be held soon. MRS. ELIZABETH M'EWEN.

It's the Evidence of Indiana People Published in Indiana Papers That Has Made Such a. Reputation for »r. A. W. Chase's STerve Pills. Standing clear and distinct, marking the difference, the superior merit, the adaptability to present day ailments is the volume of local testimony for Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve PiUs. It's so different to the ordinary remedies referring to cures made at distant points which it is hard to verify. There is a reason for Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills commanding home evidence wherever they are known—it is then: wonderful influence in bringing up the standard of Nerve Force. Mrs. Mary Ralston, of No.-- 1057 Church street, Indiana, Pa., says: "I can honestly say Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills I got at He trick Bros. Drug Store on Philadelphia- street, are fine. They are so good to steady the nerves— build up ones strength—give energy— tone and natural sleep. They are a splendid all round tonic and I am only too glad to recommend them, as this is the way we found they acted.'' Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills are sold at 50c a box at dealers' or Dr. A. W.
