The trial of Willard Harvey for the murder ot Samuel McClosky in progress in the circuit court is attracting much attention, especially in tbe neighborhood in which the principals were respected and prominent young men. Nearly the entire male population of the little town of Royal.Cen- ter was in the court room yesterday and the villagers who remained at home must have had a, lonesome time of it. The city common council will .meet in regular session this evening, at the council chamber. Among the several points of business which will be brought up is the ordinance prepared by the American Natural Gas company which-will be considered by the council. The Assembly park plans will also come up for final consideration and it is said that an ordinance -will be introduced regulating the display of posters advertising the so-called ••burlesque" shows on the bill boards of the city. It promises to be a busy session. The State Conclude* Its Kvi-JCJitc I" tilt' Iluvvey Murder Cucc I>axt Tlie JJcl'ciiKC Will Work Hard on tlie Oilier Side—Bis Attendance :it (lie Trial. Last evening at-1:30 the. State introduced its last witness in the case of Willard Harvey on trial for the .murder of Samuel McClosky, and the defense will take up the other side of the case this morning. D. D. Dykeman outlined the course of the defense and said that they would attempt to show that Willard Harvey dealt the fatal blow in defense of his brother whom he considered to be in great bodily danger at McClosky's hands; also that McClosky had been instructed to resist any efl'ort to take away any lumber from the mill on attachment and that preparations had been made to resist snch efforts to interfere on the part of the creditors; that the Harvey's had been driven away from the mill in the morning when they came to present their claim and that MeClosky refused to recognize the writ in the hands of the constable and attempted to resist the process of levyingon the property,threatening the constable and Thhs. Sheets, in whose favor the judgment was given, with violence. Dykeman presented the theory of the defense in a vigorous manner, but several times stepped over the prescribed bounds and was called down by Judge Cox, who, by tbe way has held the lawyers very level in this case. The defense claims to have a very strong case; on the other hand the State is confident of a conviction. The witnesses introduced by the State yesterday held mainly to tbe facts already presented in the case. James Hoglen. A. Winklebleck's business manager in this city, was present at the time of the difficulty and saw the encounter. Heard McClosky say that Harvey's 'father's oath was not good to which John Harvey replied by calling 1 McClosky a liar. McClosky resented this and advanced toward John with a club or strip of board in his hand, which he dropped before reaching John. Sam did not strike John who clinched him. Willard Harvey then advanced and struck McClosky over the head with a club which he held in both hands and tried to strike again but the combatants were separated. Witness asked McClosky if be was badly hurt and he re- .plicd that he thought not. Witness described the trouble between McClosky and the constable saying that he told McClosky that it would not do to quarrel in the matter. Charles Jewell'wbo was head sawyer at the mill, gave testimony similar in purport to' the above. Testified that Willard struck McClosky over the head with the club and tried to strike a second blow but was prevented by Wm Marshall, struck a third time, the blow taking effect between McClosky's shoulders. Witness also testified to the difficulty with the constable when McClosky attempted to repel efforts to levy on the lumber The two sticks, or slats, the one held by McClosky and the one used with such deadly effect by Willard were produced in court and the various witnesses identified them as the same or similar. Michael Howe's testimony was simply coroborative. James MehafBe and Dan Bingaman testified to a quarrel McClosky and Willard Harvey had had over a game of cards in Mehaffie's saloon some time previous to the affair at the mill, but thought that the two cherished no ill feeling on account of the hard words passed during the quarrel. William Fye testified that McClosky had instructed him Jo make a club, the same being, produced in court and identified by witness; for what purpose the club was ordered he did not know; his evidence concerning the fight was simply corroborative. The testimony of Lewis Kramer was also corroborative and brought out no new facts. The last witness introduced by the State was Mrs. Edith MeClosky, widow of the murdered man. She said that she was standing in the side door at her home near the mill and heard loud"words at the mill. Knowing that there was trouble and serious trouble she started to the mill-reaching there ju-t as the combatants were being separated. She saw the last blow struck but was so badly frightened at the danger of her husband that she'did not recognize the person holding the club. Her husband was able to walk to the mill pump thence home, carrying their little child which had followed her. The State here rested the case and the defense moved tliat the State be required to produce Thos. Sheets and Constable Hoover who were present at tbe difficulty as witnesses. The coiirt; will rule on the motion in the m'orning. $ 9. 8 8 Overcoats and Suits To speed the parting with this Season's goods we cut to cost and down below!

J ecozro -e» PACKAGE TOILET TISSIW Wilson, Humphreys & Co. 2OO and 2O2 Fourth St. Our Popular Flour. Flour is the most important thing we sell you and that we have tried to make ourselves the most popular. ,We selected a pink sack and the brand "Snow Ball' 1 as the trade mark for the flour we were going to make popular. Then we came to the flour. Quality was the first thing we thought of. We wanted the whitest and most satisfactory flour on the market, when we found it we warranted it. Price was another thing of utmost importance we wanted, a price which no one else could approach on that quality of flour, and we found it' 'Snow Ball" at once became the popular flour of Logansport, and of a hundred miles around, and it is to-day. We buy it now in car-loads, and our buying price is low. Our selling price is only $2.20 per hundred. But you must get the right "Snow Ball" to get this price and this quality. Others may imitate the brand, but. not the price, if their quality is right. The "Snow Ball" we have told you of is only sold at M. McCaffrey & Co,
