Why under the law were they doing business after eleven o'clock ?—Pharos. The Pharos is not ignorant of the terms and conditions under which this state of affairs exists. It is not ignorant of the fact that they exist by a bargain under a Democratic administration the official organ of which is the Pharos. The above editoral, displaying child-like innocence, is intended to quiet the indignation of the order loving^people of Logansport at the party which is responsible for the violation of law referred to. Since the Pharos has publicly taken this position however the Journal will call upon it later on for support of candidates who favor a correction of some of the abuses.

Prospects for TVlieat. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 18. — In Northern. Indiana* wheat has been bare aearly all ivinter. The plants,, how- sver, seem perfectly strong and healthy, .and the present prospects are good. Fanners are generally holding their wheat, and only sell when they' are obliged to. Considerable wheat is being shipped in. In Central Indiana wheat has not been covered with snow more than seven days since December 1. Farmers,arc .marketing..practically no wheat in this section, and it becomes more apparent that the shortage of the crop was fully as great as estimated. A great many of the country *° °* mills in this portion of the State are •hipping in wheat from Michigan to >upply their home trade. In Southern Indiana they have had no snow since December 25. The wheat is looking brown, and is not as promising as last year at this date. The reports from Southern Indiana are generally of a •favorable character with regard to the condition of the growing winter wheat. Farmers are still disposed to hold their wheat, and receipts for the last sis weeks have been extremely light. Delayed Two Years. INDIANAPOLIS,.Ind., Jan IS.—By a report from the Secretary of State to the Senate in response to a resolution adopted by that body, the discovery is made that the constitutional amendments adopted by the last session and to be adopted by this have been vitiated by the negligence of the clerk of the last House and no action can be taken upon them. The amendments were numbered 0, 11, 12, 14, IS, 10, 21 and 23, and related to the terms of county and State officers, making all terras four years, and rendering the incumbents ineligible for reelection within a period of eight years. The Secretary of State reports that the amendments were not s-praad at length upon the House journal of the last session, as required' by law, and he can not, therefore, report them to the present body for action. They would have been adopted at this session and submitted to the people next spring for ratification. A s the case now stands they will have to be introduced anew and their adoption will be delayed for two years. Lawlessness in Hoosierdom. COLUMBUS, Ind., Jan. is.—The midnight assault upon John Roderer in Clark County has aroused popular indignation, and lodges are being organized looking to ridding that section of the State of a dangerous class. The. promoters claim they are law-abiding, and that they must not be classed as ''White Caps," but that something of this kind is necessary to protect society. In some sections of the county there is almost a reign of terror, so numerous are the depredations. In the southern part of this county a similar organization has been formed to rid the country of tramps -that sleep in barns, and in many instances burn them. Suddenly Stricken Dumb. '.To'ST WATJTEilnd,, Jan. IS.- Friday morning Orville Gaylord, aged 7,1 years, left his home : as usual, enjoying the best of health. .When he reached the Murray street wood-yard, where he is a sawyer, his ' fellow workmen greeted him. H"e responded and talked freely" till 10 o'clock. Suddenly he stopped from his saw.' and stood the picture of despair, yet uttered not a sound. In a few minutes he left his work and ran to the office. At the desk Gaylord wrote: "I can not talk." He was told to open his month. This he did, but his tongue was motionless, and apparently stiff. It is thought his tongue is paralyzed. JFor the Eicht-Hour Law. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind,, Jan." 18.—The Representatives of. the Farmers' Alliance, State Grange, State Federation of Trades and other labor organizations have decided in caucus to work for the passage of bills abolishing contract convict labor, making an eight-hour-a-day clause in all State contracts; the repeal of the law voting subsidies to corporations; requiring corporations to pay for special privileges; placing free gravel roads under the management of road supervisors, and favoring the creation of a new State board of agriculture. it- V I JonriiaJlMn in Northern Indiana. • • A few evenings ago, a couple of would be gentlemen in rather an intoxicated condition, had a misunderstanding, and went into the street, and foughtit out;, of .course you can .fight any place in, town or throw a Jnd., Jan. 18.—Two children, aged three years and fifteen months respectively, sons of.

SIDE TRACKED. DEAJI JOURNAL:—The long expected side-tracking of the election or "force' 1 bill took: place in the Senate of Congress the other day, unexpectedly, at that time, and the discussion of the free coinage amendment to the Senate Finance Committee's .anti-contraction bill has taken place. There is wide divergence of opinion upon this action of the Senate in its relations to the public intei ests but much less difference on .its relations to party policies, fealty and irterests. The Republican Senators who took the responsibility of separating themselves from their colleagues and joining the enemy in the defeat of a Republican measure to secure the-hoped for advancement of a pet financial scheme, are almost universally condemned for such action by Republicans, and Democratic party men cannot approve such a disregard of party fealty. There were better . ways to accomplish die end they had in view than th'at which, they adopted. These Senators, however, are, doubtless, prepared to assume all the responsibility they have incurred, and I insist that it rests upon .them, and their. Democratic coadjutors in the Senate-, not upon the:Republican party. In the first place the so-called force bill is is not the embodiment of the Republican principle of a'"free vote and a fair count." It is merely a method : of carrying out that principle and, therefore, largely a question of expediency upon which Republicans may honestly and properly differ, and there are many thorough-going Re- publicaug who at least doubt the expediency of the Hoar measure which, has been set aside, believing that its results would be bad for the country and disastrous to the Republican party— but it .is like prohibition in the,temperance cause, too good for the times, and that the Republican party cannot afford to sacrifice itself in a vain effort to enact and enforce such a measure. There are others who hold that the longest way around on this question of a free vote and fair count may be the nearest way through', jota the line suggested the other day in the Journal of taking away the representative where the vote is not cast and counted. Personally I would like to see the whole doctrine of the constitutional authority of Congress to control National elections asserted bv a proposition to put all National elections, everywhere, under the National laws, but the time does not seem to have arrived for a policy so radical as that. One of the weaknesses of the force bill is the fact that it is almost universally regarded as a measure for the benefit of the Republican party rather than the assertion and exercise of a National function, in obedience to the National constitution. In the second place, the Republican party, having generally given its adhesion to the Lodge elections bill as a measure carrying out the party principle of a free vote and fair count, I maintain that the party has stood by that measure in good faith and cannot fairly be held responsible for its failure. The Republicans of the House of Congress passed it. The Republicans of the Senate tried to pass it last year, but were compelled by circumstances they could not prevent or control to postpone further action upon it. until this year. They took it up promptly as per agreement this year, but were confronted daily with insurmountable obstacles placed in its way by the parliamentary power of the Democratic minority. The President, in one of the grandest messages of our history, put his whole power in the scales for this measure, and so the whole party was arrayed as a unit in its behalf, so far as it could be by representation, but at. this juncture the financial squeeze came into complicate matters. Some Senators, saw in the force bill interminable debate and only final failure, through delays in the Senate and Republican numerical weakness in the House, while ruin to'the party and disaster- to the country lurked in the failure of financial legislation. These Senators, acting for themselves and in defiance of party fealty 'and usage, have joined the Democrats in .setting aside the force bill, and that is probably the end of it. I maintain that it is a slander upon the Grand Old party to assert that their . action has in uny degree impaired the integrity of the party on:the party principle of a free vote and fair count, THE FINANCIAL QUESTION. The vote in the Senate ou the pending financial measure is to be taken next Wednesday, and will reach your readers before this_ appears in print. It is safe to predict, however, that the free coinage amendment will wipe out about all of the pending Senate bill except the provisions for the issue of $200,000,000 of two per cent, bonds. As the bill was reported it made provision for the issue of about $190,000,000 of silver certificates during the year after its enactment. What free coinage will do in this direction is an unknown quantity. It means that the silver product of the world may be dumped upon our circulation in. the shape of silver certificates, and may result in an enormous inflation. Senator Shermaa says it will mean the retirement of gold entirely, but the silver men scout that assertion. No man can show satisfactorily what the result will be, But on the Other hand, this is the greatest silver producing country in the world, and for centuries silver has been considered a precious metal almost. always equally and sometimes superior to gold for coinage into money. It is a question of choice between this coinage and fiat money, either as a promise to pay, or better, as a promise to receive. ' It is evident to me that free coinage will have its trial in this country under some administration not very remote from the present one. I cannot think that any great disaster will follow this trial. If it produces the "intoxication of undue inflation" Congress can sober the country off next December or sooner if the President finds the "fog" too threatening-. I venture to hope, therefore, that President Harrison will accept the inevitable and in some way, if he cannot exactly approve, permit the bill enacted on this subject by Congress to become the law. Let Mr. 'Cleveland stand alone in the glory, such as it is, of .opposing the unmistakable will of a great majority of the people on this silver question. Free coinage may be a mistake, but it is just now clearly the embodiment of the popular side of the pending "irrepressible conflict" on the financial question. In the "ir repressible conflict" on the slavery question the East was the natural leader. In the financial conflict the West must go to the front. I am confident that the required leadership there will be no lacking and that the apparent dissensions, divisions and disaffections in the high .councils of the Republican party will work out for it a new career of usefulness and success. MISCELLANEOUS. Hon and Mrs. W. D. Owen attended the. first. state dinner of the season, given at the White House Tuesday evening in honor of the Diplomatic Corps. The presence of Ca.pt. Frank Swig-art, Capt. T. H. McKee and William H. and Giles Smith at a special meetirg of the Indiana Republican,Association last Saturday evening made the place seem a little like a Logansport Republican gathering. The Social Reception of this Association will be held on the evening of Jan. 22 at Armory hall on G. street. It promises to be quite a prominent event. The President will be there. It is expect that Mr. Owen will present his repoi-t from the Committee on Immigration, with his accompanying bill, some day this 1 week. Mr. Victor L. Ricketts, of Delphi, the clerk of this .committee, is here, but 1 have not had the pleasure of meeting- him yet. The House of Congress is pegging away chiefly on routine business with the shipping bill to consider fcr recreation. I am glad to note that the Cass County Farmer's Institute at its annual January meeting- had a fair at- tence for at least oue day. I believe this Institute'has been of more benefit to the farmers who have attended its meetings regularly than a life-time of membership in any political farmer's association could be. J. T. B.

ALL IS QUIET. ,.,-,,' PINE RIDGK, 3. D., Jan. 17.—The council between the friendly and the hostile Indians reported in these dispatches has tended to relieve the anxiety of many white people and assure the Indians that their fear of being massa cred by the soldiers was withou' foundation. Everybody seems to fee! that the trouble has been brought to close. An order has been issued directing the Seventh Infantry, Colonel Merriam, which has been . serving on Cherry Creek, and the lower Cheyenne river, near Standing Rock agency, to return to its' post, Fort Logan, . Denver. .. Rodney's , battery, which has also; been serving in the same vicinity, has been ordered back to Fort Riley. Colonel Sumner's command, comprising the Eighth Cavalry and Third Infantry, has been ordered to return to . Fort Meade. It has alsu been decided that the Sixth Cavalry, formerly under General Carr, comprising nine troops of about 500, will hereafter' be located in the Department of the Platte with headquarters at Fort Nipbrara. The cavalry force at Fort Kobinson will also be increased, and it is expected that the new order of affairs will tend , to the rehabilitation of Fort McKinney, at which there are now only two troops of the Ninth Cavalry under Colonel Henry. This strengthening of the cavalry along the reservation is intended as a safeguard and ' to revive the confidence of the people, who have been long in danger of the Indian outbreaks. The question is now being discussed of allowing members of the First Infantry under Colonel Shaf ter, who feel so disposed, to. remain in this department. Friday afternoon a significant effort to promote harmony among the Indians was made. A gathering took place' at the instance Of the Ogallalas and was held in what is known as "Loafers' camp" in the vicinity of the 'friendlies' quarters. Six hundred Brules were present. The Ogallalas had prepared a feast of hot coffee and boiled dog and the braves squatted in a circle, in the center of which steamed the viands. The only white man present was Lieutenant Taylor, Ninth Cavalry, commander of the famous Ogallala scouts. Among the Ogallalas present were Chiefs Standing Soldier, American Horse, Standing Bear, Fast Thunder, Spotted Horse, White-,:'Bird . and Bad Wound. Among the Brules were ' Chiefs Short Bull, Kicking Bear, High. Pipe, Ires Bull, Turning Bear and Two Strike. American Horse reviewed the circumstances which had led to the \ present difficulty and had impelled Gen- 1 eral Miles to issue his order disarming/ the Indians. He said the order ought' to be complied with and that they should return to their homes and brin their young men to respect their go( white friends, dissuade them from v. leace, and compel the children to retu? to school. . Short Bull said that a great many/ 1 the Kosebud Indians wanted to cdmco the Pine Ridge agency, because knew they would be, treated there. High Pipe and Two Strili spoke. •. . / Lieutenant Taylor' was -aske to speak, and said that • he' knew/cry many Ogallalas and was satisfiejthat they were friendly.

CHICAGO, Jan. 17.— There are no new developments in the railway telegraphers' strike. General Manager Earling. of the Milwaukee & St. Paul road, says that only seventy-five 'men have quit work and that all their places have been filled. At the strikers' -headquarters, however, it is claimed that there are 330 men who have quit work. Judge Reynolds' M YOEK, Jan. 17. — Alphonse X- Stepham, who shot and, killed ex- Judge Clinton C.
