Unique Campaign at Indianapolis That Will Come to an End Next Tuesday. EMITS MAZING A HOT CANVASS. "He I« tho Camiidate and Party Combined and Witl O«t About 500 Votes, It Is ! Claimed — Taggart and Harding — Drought Playing Havoc on the Farms— Whitecapa Again Disgrace the Stuto— Church Burned at Lafayette. Indianapolis, Oct. 9.—Next Tuesday Indianapolis will elect a mayor, clerk, police judge, five councilman at large, and fifteen -ward ecuncllmen. The campaign has been the most extraordinary since the special charter under which the city operates was granted by tne legislature in March, 1S91. Thore arc six tickets — Democratic, Republican, Citizens', Prohibition, Socialist, and C. F. Smith. Smith Is his entire tiiket. He announced himself for mayor unaided, promulgated a platform designed in ;-uit independent voters. He is rich ;i:.d is spending more- money than any other campaign committee has to spend. but in an entirely different way. Ho has rented offices and is printing a newspaper called The Truth In the ia- tt-i-ests of his "party." Sum* Ante-Election Predictions. At best he will receive 500 votes. Probably the number will be nearer 200. of which the most will come from the Waverly bicycle factory, of which he is the proprietor. The total vote of the city will not exceed 43,000, and may not be in excess of 38,000, unless recent chargesof corruption stimulates a greater partisan interest than has thus far teen shown. Aside from the candidacy of Smith for mayor (the minor offices »re not to be filled on his ticket), the peculiarity of the campaign lies in the division of the parties. Thomas Tas- gart, the Democratic candidate for mayor, is the incumbent. TaiiRart looks for the Nejfro Votes. Taggart is universally regarded as a "'good fellow." He expects to receive 40 per cent, of the colored vote and a Kood share of the business Republican •vote. The Columbia club, in which the Republican faith is required in national questions, but where srome latitude is tolerated in local politics, will give Tag- Eart 20 or 30 per cent, of its vote. So the Democracy has been figuring out 50,000 votes in all. But the Republicans are claiming that the scandals of the administration will overwhelm it. They point to the removal of the chief of police for drunkenness at a DoliMcal meeting, to various other misdeeds charged and to the resignation of Sterling B. Holt, member of the park commission, under charges of corruption. HiirdiiiR an Old-Line Republican. William Newton Harding, the Republican candidate for mayor, is a lawyer of good standing-, who has been Identified with the Republican party fnr years. He is in private life irreproachable. The Republican candidate for police judge, George W. Stubbs, will run ahead of the ticket. The rest of the ticket will go with the head. The other tickets will receive small consideration. 'No other city or town holds an election In Indiana next Tuesday. ANOTHER OUTRAGE BY WHITECAPS, •Inn, Wife and Chllil Taken Out by Miscreants and Badly Beaten, Bloomfield, In<3.. Oct. 9.—The country around Smithville, in Monroe county, is greatly excited over a whitecap outrage that occurred there Wednesday morn- Ins, and the cause of which is still shrouded in mystery. About 1 o'clock a nu>b of twenty persons broke in the door ff William Heddiek's house, nearSmith- ville, and took Heduk-k. his \\ii-. and their 12-year-old son from their beds, dragged them to a wood that skirts the farm, and there tied them to trees and gave them an unmerciful beating. When liberated from the tree Mrs. Heddick was so weak fri>m fear and suffering that she fell in a swoon. Heddick's body •was cut and bruised by the switches, and the boy's arms and back were discolored vith stripes. No one except the whitecaps knows why the punishment was inflicted, and the neighborhood of the family agree in flaying- that they never heard of any charges being brought agair.st any of them. The boy had trouble with one of his schoolmates a few days ago, but it was only a childish quarrel, and nothing was thought of it afterward. This is the only thing that can be assigned as a reason for the barbarous treatment of the family, and it has recurred to the people only because it suggests the possibility of being the reason. DROUGHT IS DOING GREAT DAMAGE. •Wheat Killed, Pastures -Worthless and Fir* In the Marshes. Rochester. Ind., Oct. 9.—The drought In this section of the state is the worst experienced for more than twenty years. In this county but three showers have fallen in four months. The farmers have had no rain since beginning to prepare for fail seeding and there is not a promising field of wheat in the entire county. For more than two months the upland pastures have been worthless, and the merchants have been compelled to send <t> Chicago for butter with which to sup- .j»ly their customers. Some of the pike roads have been cut up until almost ruined. Mar?h fires are numerous and are causing great loss to the farmers' hay and grain, ar.d insome instances buildings are b"ir.g destroyed. In the eastern, part of the county forest fires are ruining acres <if valuable timber. The smoke is stifling. Some farmers are afraid to permit an engine to go on their land to thrash (Train for fear of fire. In this city six fires have been started in two days. Bicycle riding on the country roads is almost impossible and no or.e drives unless compelled to do so on account oj the dust, which Is from one to three inches deep. Mmny Poor People Will Lose. Liberty. Ind., Oct. 9.—The Liberty Building and Loan association has gone into voluntary liquidation. Many poor people will lose all they have put into It in the .past eight years, and some of them lose .their homes. The association jras formed eight yean ago, to run six y«ars. At the expiration of this time Its affairs were merged into a new organization, a. few members being paid off without interest. There had been paid in J55.000. This, with the interest for eight years. Is gone, and the concern will not pay 10 cents on the dollar. A thorough examination will be made. It is ..re of the most disastrous financial blows this town has ever suffered. Holt Resign" by Request, Indianapolis, Oct. 9.—Sterling R. Hnlt, who is charged with having accepted $5,000 from 'a firm of sewer contractors for having secured changes in sew*r J specifications, at the request of May.jr Taggart has resigned as a member cf the city board of park commirs'.oners. He still declines to talk, but says 'ie will have something to say latter. He is Mayor Taggart's partner in business, they with Albert Sahm ownim; the Grand hotel. For many years h*' has been prominent in politics, and it is estimated that he is worth $500,000. Covert-Hnll Joint Debate. Anderson, Ind., Oct. 9.—The national spiritualistic debate between W. R. Covert, of St. Louis, and Moses Hull, of Boston, was subjected to a change Thursday night. Covert took the aggressive, affirming that spiritualism is a. fraud, a lie, and a delusion. He struck out straight for the points at issue. He confined his remarks mainly to his version of the history of spiritualism. Hull combated all of the arguments and appeared better in defense than in the lead, such as he was the first two nights. German Reformed Church. Fort Wayne. Ind.,Oct. 9.—The chief business before the northwest synod of the German Reformed church yesterday was the reception of greetings from other synods. Rev. L. J. Mayers, of Illinois, spcke for the Synod of th* Interior; Rev. H. Nau, of Ceylon, O., for the Central synod, and Rev. Pa.ul Sommerhite, of New York city, for the Eastern synod. Church at Lafayette Burn*, Lafayette, Ind., Oct. 9.—Fire destroyd the new Second Presbyterian church here yesterday, the loss being almost total: insurance, $17,500. A bonfire In an alley set fire to a small barn, the church catching by communication. The church is but three years old ar.d cost $75,000. It was the handsomest in the city. Beaten with His Own Mace. Newcastle, Ind., Oct. 9.—Night Policeman Albert Spell while trying to preserve order and disperse a drunken gang was set upon by William, Simon and Ambrose Ellis, three negroes, and badly, if not fatally, beaten with his own mace, which the assailants took away from him. He Is in a critical condition. DROUGHT CHECKS THE BOOM. Still the Volume of Trade In Greater Than the Record In Recent Years. New York, Oct. 9.—Bradstreet's says: Distribution of general merchandise in the central west and northwest is further checked owing to the prolonged' drought in Kentucky, Illinois, Kansas, portions of Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota and the Dakotas. Telegraphic advices to Bradstreet's report serious damage in Kansas and parts of Nebraska and Iowa, where early planted wheat is up and budding out, but that planted later is not likely to sprout. Fall plowing is now impossible, six weeks without, rain having dried up pastures and compelled farmer to feed stock. Manufacturing industries throughout the we^t, particularly iron and steel, continue active, and there is an increasing tendency on the part of the interior merchants to remit promptly. While the volume of trade has decreased at Chicago it is ahead of the like- record in recent years. There is a moderate improvement in business in the south. Pligher prices this week are reported for cotton, coal and clothing (in sympathy with wool), wheat, flour and eggs. Print cloths, .lard, beef and sugar have declined. Hides are weaker, lead is lower and Bessemer pigs sold off 50 cents a ton under heavy speculative offering?, notwithstanding the iron and steel markets as a whole remain active and firm. There were 237 business failures reported throughout the United States this week, compared with 1S9 last week, 291 in the week a year ago, 274 two years ago, 238 three years ago and 406 in 1S93.

It is said that if the earth's atmosphere were suddenly increased in thickness to 700 miles the sun could not penetrate it and the earth would soon be wrapped in ioe. .Dr. Schoot, an eminent German scientist, says that there is not less than 20,000 tons of mineral matter per day added to the store which tha ocean already holds in solution. Air can now be easily liquefied; hut, according to The American Machinist, the difficulty of putting it to any practical use lies in the fact that it must be stored and transmitted at o tempera cure of more than £00 degrees below zero.
