Klein Will Probably be Given «f* Preliminary llcni-In:* llil* Morulnc. After a week of investigation Coroner Ballard has returned a verdict in the Gibbs murder case. The verdict was written last evening and will be filed in the circuit court this morning. Upon the filing of the same Klein will be taken from the jail and given a preliminary hearing before Mayor Cullen. Following is the verdict: State ot Indiana. County of Cuss, ss: I, J. W. Ballard, coroner of said county, on the 24th day of January 1891, in Eel township, county of Cass, State o£ Indiana held an inquest .to inquire into; and by what manner, and by whom John Gibbs whose body was found dead, in said county and State, on the 16th of January 1891, came to his death by violence. After having examined the body and heard the evidence, I do find that the deceased came to his death- by being struck on the head with a piece of loaded rubber hose in the hands of Barney Klein. I do further find that the several blows administered by Klein were not struck in self-defense; it having been clearly shown in the evidence, given before me that the deceased did not attempt to defend himself from the brutal attack made upon him by Klein, but ob the contrary begged him to desist and tried to leave the room to avoid further trouble. I therefore recommend that Barney Klein be held to answer to the crime of murder in the second degree. In testimony whereof,! have hereunto set my hand and the seal of my office this 2-lth day of January. 1891. J. W. BALLAKD; Coroner, Cass County, Indiana. Kxposed the Itliiid Header. J. Randal Brown, the mind reader, is well remembered by Logaasporters. Last winter he gave an exhibition of his powers here, performing successfully the very trick described below' and caused much wonderment among his credulous auditors. The following Davenport, Iowa, special shows how J. Randal was exposed at that place: "J. Randal Brown, tae Iowa mind reader who has performed such astonishing fe»,ts on both sides of the Atlantic, -at royal audiences in England and elsewhere and in. all the cities of this country, was exposed here last night. He undertook to read the mind of Mayor Ficke while separated from him the length of the opera house. The means of communication was a wire which each of them was to hold to his head, The first test was to be the number of the Mayor's watch. After arranging preliminaries, including the labeling of the number by the subject that he might have a memorandum of it, another watch was substituted without Brown's knowledge. The Mayor held the watch and Brown pressed his end of the wire to Ms head a moment, then slowly pronounced the number of the original watch. This was greeted with laughter, and then it developed that Brown, had secured an impression of the number written, apd of course the changing of the watches showed up the fraud. The performance closed abruptly amid scenes little short of riotous. GENUINE Red Letter Sale. It will eclipse all are former efforts.

Thc.Oicl Canal In Debt. . The old canal bed is principally valuable to its.owners for the heavy .accumulation of back taxes which has grown •upon it for years, and as the said taxes are advertised delinquent and the property is in fair way of being sold to satisfy this claim of the city and county upon it, the owners of the canal' are bestirring- themselves. Yesterday Milt Shirk, ef Peru, was in the city looking after the matter and found that there were assessed against the canal in the city and county taxes to the amount of $4,500. By his request a committe consisting of Councilmen Palmer, Boyer and Tousley were appointed' at the adjourned session of the council last evening to confer with the owners of the canal to see what might be done in the matter.
