McNary will entertain the "Chestnut" euchre club this evening. : The Carleton Club has issued invitations to a dance and reception at theG.A. B. hall Monday evening February 9. The affair promises to . be a'very pleasant one. The street' parade given by the Colored-Minstrels yesterday at noon was so peculiarly "bummy" that it caused two .teams.- to run away' on FourtTi street. No damage. Yesterday morning in the city court Charles Wilson, of Adams .township, was fined for- intoxication. Also Mrs. Jane Smith plead guilty to provoking Mrs. Darlington and was fined the usual amount which fine was settled. Jake Stoll was completely and agreeably surprised by a large party of bis friends Monday 'evening. They called at his home .On the corner of llth and North in celebration of his 22d birthday. The - evening ' was passed in a very pleasant manner. The monthly crop report, issued by the department at Washington, sa,ys of the growing, crops in Indiana: Winter wheat and rye have rarely been in better condition at this season of, the year. It also says that the remarkably warm and mild weather up to December 1 has kept the pastures in fine condition, grazing has remained excellent, and much grain, hay, etc., has been kept ia fine condition with little feeding. The corn orop matured well, and the hay crop has proved the most profitaole, of the staple productions of the Coining Attraction*. Of the opera boufl'e company to he atDolan's to-morrow night the New York World says: People who went to see the burlesque of "Faust;" a second or third time grew very fond of the music, and it was not long before it was hummed and whistled almost universally- throughout the city. The whole story of • 'Faust 11 is so poetical and so thoroughly instinct with delicate sentiment and beauty, that its treatment by burlesque was at first resented in some quarters. But it was believed that the piece could be popularized without being brutulized. Reeves and Monroe have proved that there was more than a warrant for this belief. Mr. Munroe, in his satire, has treated the German'ro- mance with so delicate and grotesque a touch that he has left the outline of the story and adapted its leading events to suit the spirit and modern time. Mr. Reeves has staged the piece magnificently.. Not a new and novel feature in tableau, dance or ballet has been overlooked, and no entertainment could be more delicate, at the same time funnier or more attractive. Elmer E.. Vance's "Limited Mail," is so well known here that press notices are unnecessary to extoll its merits, yet to show the favor with which the play was received at Chicago we quote the following' from the Chicago Journal of Oct. 6, '90. "The Limited Mail" at the People's crowded the theater to suffocation at both performances, and the audience fairly went wild, hats were thrown in the air when the limited mail passed by, and cries of "good," "good," were heard when the^telegraph wires flashed in flaming letters their warning of impending danger to the train. The scenic'and mechanical effects are striking, and on an elaborate scale. If is doubtful if two more effective and skillfully handled mechanisms than the flight of the limited mail and the telegraph scene have ever been witnessed here. They are both ingenious and original. Tlic Colored 3Hii*trclK. It being so bitterly cold last evening was probably the reason why a larger crowd did not greet Cleveland's Colored Minstrels, or was it the natural hesitation of many at going to a performance of colored men. A fair crowd was in attendance however, 'and the performance throughout gave general satisfaction. The plan of .the performance was unique, but pleasing and much applause was elicited by the fun making- and specialties during the evening. _ ' The funeral of Mrs. Milt R. .Skinner yesterday afternoon was very. largely attended. Services were conducted at the Episcopal church by Rev. B. F. Miller and the funeral ceremony of the Pythian Sisters, of which the deceased was an honored and beloved member, was carried • out. The pall bearers were Sir Knights, Walter Thomas, Al Lewis, Chas. Laird, Ly- manKilborn J. P. Foglesong and W. H. Legg. Interment was made in Mt. Hope cemetery.

LOWE, Judge Frazor's VliidlnK I" tlio Above Celebrated C:i«e-Iu Favor of the PI Intinv * —__ J n<J jriM <• nl-. AiTaluisi the J»clVu<lanl Assrrt'eatlnir '855,000—A Com- ]>llcutcil « ttac. When Judge Fraxer announced his decision in the Xurpie-Lowe case yesterday the north court room wag thronged with lawyers and others whose interest had been aroused in this case during it's long hearing in this court. The decision was embraced in a voluminous document which required two Hours in reading. Judge Frazer read it in his slow, deliberate manner and his reading was listened to with the closest attention. This finding gave a .personal judgment in favor of C. M. Homer, one of the creditors and sureties of the Tur- pies for full amount of his claim and indebtedness against Turpie which Lowe agreed to pay to the amount of $8,200; a personal judgment in favor of plaintiffs. J. H. and William Turpie for |19,'775 and a further finding in favor of J. H. . and Wm. Turpie that they are entitled -to $320 no.w in the hands of the court clerk the proceeds of the sale of some horses, and the court further orders that Lowe and wife convey to the Turpies land, in Jasper, Starke and White counties of the value of about $20,000, landj which Turpies had conveyed to Lowe under their contj-act, making full recovery to J. H. and Wm Turpie against Lowe in value $40.000. The wives of J. H. and Wm. Turpie also have-'a finding in their favor against Lowe for §10,000. There is also a finding against Lowe in favor of George H. Jones for. $800. Total' finding'against Lowe about §55,000. In this connection a brief history of this celebrated case will be interesting: In the fall of 1885, J. H. and Wm. Turpie owning large landed interests in Indiana and Ohio, found themselves financially'embarrassed and approached Hugh Lowe, a wealthy farmer and stock raiser in White county, for the purpose of getting him to take their property and pay their debts for a consideration aod to return the residue of the property to them after paying the debts out of it and paying himself s for services and expenses. On December 2, of that year, Hugh Lowe entered into an agreement with the Turpies agreeing;' to take the Indiana lands and a small portion of the Ohiolands and to pay the Indiana debts amounting to about §17,000. Afterward, on. December 26; another agreement was entered into by the terms of which Lowe took the residue of the Turpie's property in Ohio, purchasing one-half interest in the same for $20,000 and took the residue under an agreement that he -should apply the §20,000 agreed to be paid for the one-half interest in the Ohio property to the payment of debts supposed to be about that amount. If more than this sum were required, to pay these debts Lowe was to hold the other half (Turpie's half) as security for any excess over $20,000 he might have to pay. In accordance with this agreement the Turpies gave Lowe a title to all their real estate in Indiana and Ohio, the transfer being made, before January 5, 1886. Lowe paid off some of the Turpie's debts, but about the 20th of January.still retaining the property, refused to proceed' any further with contract and refused upon '.:-.,uand to convey back to the Turpi; .-• -;,heir property or any part of it. The Turpies then proposed to him that he retain enough to secure their indebtedness to him and that he .convey to them the ballance that'cthey might make some other turn.to .pay their debts, all of which Lowe refused to do. • . After that Lowe refused to take any steps toward relieving the property the Turpies had transferred to him from ineumbrances on it, so that the major part of it was sold on executions to pay Off those liens and was thus lost to both Lowe and the Turpies. . The action was brought by the Tur- pies for damages they claim to have sustained by reason of Lowe's failure to either carry out the contract or return the propercy to them. The case -was tried in the White circuit court in 1886 and the jury disagreed. A second trial -was begun in White county but before it was concluded the •presiding 'judge decided' that: ,the complaint was insufficient and judgement was- rendered for the defendant, Lower From this judgment the case was appealed to the Supreme court where the ruling of the lower court was reversed, the Supreme court holding that the complaint was sufficient. The case was. thereupon transferred to the Cass circuit court,upon the motion of the defendant and came on for trial before Judge Winfield in September 1889. After a 1 heaYinjr the ' Judge •' rendered a finding in favor : of plaintiff for oYer^.^8.000. The defendant moved for-,, a new trial to .which .theplaintiffs consented and the ' case came on again for trial before Judge Fraizei; commencing the latter part of September and continuing without intermission, making the longest and most stubornly contested case ever tried in this court or perhaps in the State. . la Trouble AVltli Mis m*Jioj>. Mat-ion Chronicle: Quite a good deal of indignation is felt in Anderson Catholic circles over the fact that Rishop Dwenger -of the- Fort Wayne diocese has determined upon removing- the llev. Father Weichman from the charge of the Catholic congregation at that place. The cause is saifl to be due to the failure of Father Welch man 10 obey an order issued by the bishop some months .ago condemning the present church edifice and ordering the erection of another one. Diving to the fact that the congregation had been taxed to build a parochial residence and to clear up some other indebtedness, Father Weichmao felt that it .would be a hardship upon his parish oners to ask them to 'build a new and costly church edifice at once, so architects were called and the building was repaired and rendered safe. This, it seems, displeased the bishop, hence his removal of Father Weichman. Prominent Catholics of Anderson have interceded with, the bishop, but he appears to be obdurate a,nd will not revoke his order. ASSEMBLY~P1M.

There is a joint meeting, at the New Denison to-day, ol the State and local committees of the Oder of Railway Conductors appointed to secure the grand division headquarters of the' order in this city. Last .night representatives of the committee waited upon the governing committee of the Board of Trade and asked co-operation in the effort to bring the bead- quarters here. ' The Board of Trade committee promised all the' assistance possible, and appointed J. A. Wildman, Ford Woods. John F. Wai lick, E. H. Eldridge, and James R. Ryan a committee to.be present at the joint meeting to-day. .There were present at 1 his morning's session G. M. Saf-j ford, J. W. Cashley, A. H. Cutter,', William Bushinger and W. J. Spence,.], of the State committee, and H. M.;j Mounts, A. J. Morrow and I. D: Bald-ij win, of the local committee,! and the- .members • of the | Board of Trade special committee. . The situation was explained and there was an informal talk as to what should be done. The conductors stated that if Indianapolis would- hold out the proper inducements the headquarters would be brought here, although St. Louis and. .Columbus, 0., are anxious to secure the order's headquarters. It was stated that the order proposes to erect a fire block as a home of its own, over $400,000 having been subscribed for that purpose. It is desired, the. committee Stated, that Indianapolis donate a lot on which to erect the block, or a sum of money sufficient to buy a desirable building.site. The order now has' 23,000 members, and it is growing- rapidly. The committee.believes that' if the order locates here, other railroad, organizations will speedily make this their' headquarters. The committee is in session this'afternoon, and will probably meet to-night. An effort is to be made by the Board of Trade and Commercial Club to comply with the order's request for a building lot.—Indianapolis News.
