THK report comes from London that England will not re-open the Indian mints to the free coinage of siver. The London financiers are opposed to the proposition. Coi.. CUOMEK is going to organize a military company. The colonel has a military bearing and a voice thit. .:ommands ohedience llor a long distance. He is a graceful rider and on horseback looks like a hero. INDIANAPOLIS political circles are greatly excited over an affidavit filed by a firm Of contractors charging Sterling E. Holt with accepting a bribe to influence the action of the board of control in securing a change In the specifications of a e.ewer contract. It Is hard to believe that Mr. Holt would be guilty of such an offense. He is rich and has heretofore borno an excellent reputation in business circles. Some explanation may yet come that will free him from the stigma of such an offense. We should take him to be the last man who wouliil deliberately ruin his reputation and endanger his liberty for a paltry sum of money for which lie has no particular use. TIDE great manufacturing firm of John A. Boebling's Sons & Co., of Trenton, N. J., have not discovered any prosperity under McKinleylsm. Col. Washington Roeblicg was an elector on the McKinley ticket and Jfred W, Roebllng was a delegate to the St. Louis convention. The firm built the Brooklyn brlcige and It makas nearly all the telegraph and telephone wire used in this country. In a publlsned .letter, under date of October 6th, they say: "We haye 100 men on the pay roll at present, and find work for five day* per week only; should have 2,500 men aud full week's work. Owing 10 reductions made In the last tariff act there Is no prospect of any advance in wages or of better em- ploj ment for our men, most of whom vou d the Republican ticket at the l&Bt election. They have been deceived and cheated, and will probably try the other side next time. There are a good many other working men who voted the Republican tlcl;:et last fall who have been deceived ann cheated. Pupils of ages from 16 to SO throng to the evening schools each autumn as they are o pened. Bookkeeping and ari th- metic and stenography are favorite studies among the pupils who toil for their living during the day and work their brains at night to get an education. Good scholars in mechanical drawing, manual training, natural science and even languages have been also graduated from the helpful night school. Many talented and deserving young people "are situated, though, so they cannot go to school even at night. They may be in localities where there is no evening school. Even these can in course of time secure an education if they set their beads to it. During the warm weather aud light evenings of the summer season everybody's duty was to be outdoors as much as possible. Now as the long evenings close in there will be an hour or two on the hands of nearly all wage-workers. How shall they spend that time? Desultory reading is not good. It fritters away the intellectual powers. After reading a good newspaper enough to keep oneself acquainted with the world's current events, the best thing to do is to take np some one branch of study and pursue it from one to two hours each evening. An hour's study a day for seven or eight months would give a young man or woman an excellent start in learning a languaga The study of a good textbook on English literature or of a work on history or civil government would make up to one for the loss of much schooling. If the time most people fritter away in idleness or worse during winter evenings were spent in some line of regular study, not only would an admirable intellectual discipline be acquired, but a liberal education also. In deciding what to study the branch of learning that one naturally takes to will ba the best to begin with. Tho Fleetest Ship. The ship that is to cross the ocean in four days has not yet arrived, but the one that can do it in less than 6 days is Caylor's Graphic Account of the Baseball Climax. HOW XICHOLS NEARLY COLLAPSED. All the Star Pitchers Hit Hard During the Closing Weeks of the Season—Success of the Doable Umpire system — Scattering of the Start. The scenes and incidents which surrounded the last game of tho Baltimore- Boston deciding scries on Sept. 27 have nndoubtL-dly no parallel in b;uscball. Twenty-live thousand wore crammed, stuffed" and jammed within th" inclosuro nt- Union park, until no more could be admitted if the game was to be played. The gates were then closed and the further sale of tickets stopped. The thousands shut out were desperate. An unsuccessful effort was made, to tear down the fence, but was foiled by the police.' The doors of several adjoining vacant houses were bro ken dov.-n and every window as well as tho roofs used as sites" for seeing the game. Owners of houses across the street from the ground got their own prices for window and roof seats. One roan is known to have paid $20 to a speculator for three reserved seats. In the mighty crush several arms were broken, and the only wonder is that no lives were lost. Why should such unusual interest attach to a particular baseball game? Because the general opinion hud been formed that it was to be a last desperate and deciding struggle between these two leaders, who for six weeks previous had been racing toward the final goal neck and neck— no'se and nose, as it were—so as to attract universal admiration and attention throughout the United States. Of the other part of the series each club had won a game, leaving the Baltimores .001 per cent only in the lead. Though this third game would not end the championship season, both teams, as well as the patrons, had figured it out that the winner of that final interclub contest would "cinch" the pennant. The. Bostons had three games to play in Brooklyn before the season dosed" and the Baltimores four with the Washingtons on their own ground. If both teams won all these games, Boston would still end decidedly ahead. If Bos- Ladies - Royal Purple, Green, Red, Tan, Black and Box Calf Shoes.

The system was also a success in every other game in which it has been used. President Young must be a convert to the plan, else lie would not have experimented so much with it at the season's close. With the ending of the various cup series among the minor leagues and in the National league, the baseball season of 1S97 will end. Though contracts in the major bodv run till Oct. 15, very few clubs will keep their teams on the field till that time. In a few days the general winter scattering of stars'will take place pretty much as ' we have the shooting stars in November. • O. P. CAYLOH. GOLF GIRLS. Chicago Has a Candidate For the Next WomanV Championship. Miss J. A. Carpenter of Chicago expects to play for the woman's golf championship next "year. Miss Carpenter is not yet 17 years of age and first saw the game of golf not the last cor- IHE Democratic party need hope for tbe return of rich men wbo lelt it year to help McKinley and the pOMtiona. With them, self interest 18 stronger than party ties. .They are opposed to taxing wealth and helped overthrow the tax:on incomes. They are largely interested in corporations and favor legislation de- Gigoed to increase their power. It has. only been u short time since Koswell P. Flower, of New York, commended trusts as good things ror the people. He perhaps expressed the; tiews or other men professing 110 b^ Democrats, who have profited bj trust methods. It the Democratic party is to wlr any more political battles they wil. be won by strictly adhering to the principles enunciated in the Chicago platform. Tbei Democratic party must become the champion of tlie rights of .the common "people und confine itsfilf to Jeffersonian theories of Kovernment, or It must expect to w:ln no more political battles. The forces o:.' concentrated wealth are already firmly amalgamated within tha Republican party. These forces will stand together until all the wealtli ot the nation Is closely concentrated or through a great uprising of thci common people, organized greed shall be overcome. The Democratic party may expect in future campaigns to fiiad organized wealth solidly arrayed against it. The in- flue; ess of the trusts, the corporations and the moneyed interests oC the country were against the Democratic party in the last «ampal]jn and that influence will be against it in the future. But with all the power and the influence they could command against it, the Demooratic party polled more than six million voter- H»w JUnlj ud True. William Jennings Bryan, in A recent letter in relation to the coming •lection tot mayor of Greater Keir "When partial ooue ft already here. The marvelous run of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse across from Southampton to Sandy Hook in 5 days, 22 hours and 35 minutes places the German ship^ buildor, for a time at least, at the head of his class. The British must lower their flag. Tho remarkable feature of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosso is its greater speed with engines of no greater power than those of the Cunarders Lncania and Campania, Thirty thousand horsepower is tho capacity alike of the engines the Cunarders named and of the German ship. The Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse beats the American liner St Paul, the fastest steamer on the Atlantic hitherto, by 1 hour and 55 minutes. The German giantess has four funnels, the first vessel to carry so many. It is believed that when her machinery limbers up she will be able to travel yet faster than she did on her maiden trip. She was built at Stettin. This magnificent floating city is 648 feet long, only SI feet shorter than the Great Eastern herself. The Great Eastern traveled 12 knots an hour; the Kaiser Wilbelm der Grosse travels 23. The groan German flier has accommodations for 1,370 persons, including first and second cabin and steerage passengers and crew, and she burns 500 tons of coal a day. It costs money to run a big ship fast _^ ton lost one of its three games in- Brooklyn, Baltimore would have to win all four from Washington to regain the lead. The balance of advantage was so much in Boston's favor that a skilled bookmaker, after Boston won the Baltimore scries, would probably lay 6 to 1 against Hanlon's men. This great interest in that notable game was not confined to Baltimore. In Bos ton Washington street in front of tho newspaper offices was blocked with the crowds watching the returns as bulletined, and street curs were compelled to switch to other thoroughfares iu order to maintain a flow of traffic. Kesults were also bulletined in New York, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago and other cities where thousands watched the returns, and everywhere The cheering was unmistakably sympathetic for Boston. The game was itself a surprise. On Nichols'Boston lixcd its faith. The result shows that while Nichols will get full credit his work did not win the game. A small score like I! to 2 or 0 to i was anticipates.!, but IU to 10 was one more of those uncurrainties which fill the sport with surprises. Had anybody known that Nichols would be hit for ten runs, his good sense would have prompted him to say that the Baltimores had a cinch. But an accident put. Corbett out of the Baltimore nine in the first inning. Nops lasted only one more and Hofier'-quit like a coward" in tho seventh, which inning settled all doubts as to final results. The scenes on the field and in _the stands were dramatic. Two hundred Boston men with a brass band early in tho game rooted for the visiting team against ;>5,000 home sympathizers. But after that seventh inning the 23.000 went over to the 200 just like a stampede in a convention and cheered the Bostons wildly. The series was remarkable for the good order of immense crowds and, mirabilo dictu, 1'or the total absence of kicking on part of both teams. It was agreed that Hurst and Emslie did admirable and wholly impartial work in the three games. An additional interest was given to this great struggle by the fa-ec that tho Balti- United States Canadian and English Patents Promptly Obtained.

It bas been decided by English medical authority that "golf arm" is nreal disease in itself, and not, as was first feared, a mere common sprain brought about by violent exercise. For some time past golfers have been going about suffering from this diseas-3 without knowing Its real nature and onuse, for "golf arm" attacks the musculo-spiraf nerve, a nerve that few people outside of the medical profession tnovv of To make a drive or to knoofc the gutta percha ball from 300 to 1,500 feet into the nert hole requires no small amount of muscular strength, as well as skill, and it is oftener than not that the golfer throws himself off his feet with the force of a swinging Wow aimed too high, or else tears up the turf before the ball and breaks his stick by one aimed too low. In nny event the muscles of the back, leg and arm are brought; into violent use, and it is this that has brought about the disease of the musculo-spiral nerve. Hooper** Great Swim.
