PwnierCtL OLD AND YOUNG Settlers' Meeting Yesterday at Spencer Park. Baud Concert and Address by Major 8. L. McFadin. Nearly 1,000 people attended an Informal meeting of old settlers of the :ity and county at Spencer park yesterday afternoon. The programme consisted of £i concert by the Elks' band and a speech by Major S. L. McFadla. The music of the band was a delightful treat. That organization shows remarkable improvement under the leadership of Mr. Sam Smith. Major McFadin never Halls to please an audience. He was in a happj mood yesterday afternoon, and did himself proud. He mixed enough humor with his recitation of history to make the whole pleasing. Among other things thei Major said that he came to Logamiport in 1832 from Falrfield county, Ohio The city was an insignificant village and the Indians, of which there were many, came and went at will. He stopped with his people at a little frame hotel which stood on the lot now occupied by the St. Joseph parochial residence. He remembered the first fair ever held In the county In 1838, and Williamson Wright, now deceased, made the only speech. The count/ was named after Gen. Lewis Cass, who effected a treaty with the Indians. The seal of the Cass Circuit court represents Gen, Cass and Chief Aubbeenaubbee shak Ing hands. The Pottowattomles held all the land north of Eel river to Lake Michigan and west as far as Lafayette, and the Mlarais all south of the Wabssh from Fort Wayne to Lafayette. The name Pottowattomle signifies "fire- blowers." At one time Wabash, Miami, Cass and Carroll counties were all one county, and Hon. H. P. Blddle, the late Senator Pratt and Judge Stewart were compelled, as lawyers and court officials, to travel by horseback. Cass county was organized in 1828. Gen. George Tip ton was one of the pioneer great men cf this section of Indiana. He was born In Tennessee la 1726, and died April 5, 1S3S. He lived in a large brick residence which stood near the Panhandle round house which was torn down a few years ago. He was an Indian commissioner and United States senator from 1831 to 1S39. He was one of the founders of Tlpton lodge of Masons, of this city, and gave the lodge the lots now occupied by the Masonic temple. He was color bearer at the battle of Tlppecanoe, and when all the officers were killed was placed in command of the regiment. In 1822 he was appointed j a member of a commission to locate the boundary line between Indiana and Illinois. The Pottowattomie Indians were removed to the west in 1838, 1839 and 1849 by Judge Pepper. Col. G, N. Fitch, Capt. Rayburn and A. M Higglns were detailed with companies to congregate the Indians preparatory to their removal. Rev. Martin M. Pest was the pioneer minister of Logansport. He came in 1829 and held his first prayer meeting on New Years eve. At that time there were but two women in his congregation. Up to recent years the two largest gatherings were on June 1, 1838, when Harrison killed Scott, and in 1S46, when the soldiers left for Mexico. In those old times It took James Kintner, the mail carrier, a week to go from Lafayette to Fort Wayne on horseback. The canal packet boats could make but eight miles an hour. Enion Kendall, "The Poet of the West," and. his Debby, were mentioned. The , first white male and female children born In the city were born to Mr. and Mrs. "Jack" Smith. Gillls and Todd Me- Bain, twins, were the first children born In the county outside the city, The Major closed his remarks by a recital of the Improvements in machinery, lamps, etc., since those old pioneer days. A vote of thanks was extended Receiver Flokle for courte- cles shown,and by special request the band played. "The Indian dance." During trie rendition of the letter selection, a number of old pioneers gave the Indian war-whoop. A LITTLE BUS.' And M0re Promised— Drought Brakea In Hw Places. The little rain that fell In Logansport today is likely to be followed ay more, as the weather bureau promises showers tonight and tomorrow. Rain" fell yesterday and broke the droughth in Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kansas, Nebraska, the eastern portions of the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, northern MicMgan, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi Missouri and portions of Illinois. It would therefore seem that the conditions should be favoroble for good soaking rains in Indiana. COLOB LINE DRAWN By the Faculty of the Colrer military Academy, Great Economy in Underwear.

Routh. the packer, recently acquitted in Esquire Laing's court of the charge of maintaining a nuisance on the Southslde, was arrested, Saturday, upon a warrant issued on the affidavit of William Grace, charging him with the same offanse and with -violating the city ordinence' prohibiting the inain- tenance of a slaughter house within the city limits. The case will be called tomorrow in the mayor's court. Mr. Grace is a citizen of the locality In which the packing house is located. Hence There Was No Game «if Foot Ball Between the Cadets and Logansport Team. The Logansport High school foot ball team went to Culver, Saturday, to play a team composed of cadets at the military academy,but came home disappointed. George Parker, colored, BOB of Charles Parker, the barber, and a griiduate of the Logansport High school, is a member of the High school team, and Ool. Fleet, of the academy, objected to him (so the boys say) on account of his color, so the game was declared oft. Col. Fleet gare the visitors their choice of dropping Parker from their ranks or leaving the grounds. The boys stood by their colored friend and companion, and were then ordered to refund the money sent them to defray expenses and quit the grounds within ten minutes. They left the grounds, but considered that the expense money was justly theirs, and they declined to return it. Shortly after the establishment of the academy the Logansport team, of which Parker was then a member, played a team of students there, and the' boys were surprised at the conduct of Col, Fleet, His action, so it is said, was due to the fact that a large per cent of the students-, are from the south.
