The daily newspaper continues to supplant all other periodical publications in the estimation of the public. with the result that It is rapidly becoming the beat medium for advertisers.

He was about town bidding his friends good bye, stating tnat It was his intention to leave Thursday nighc for Pittsburg, Kan., with the colored man employed by Ei Eoaerlch; that they were going to make the trip In a car with Mr. Emerich's horse, trap and phaeton. _^____ Official facsimile of Medal Awarded DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER THAT "ONE TROUBLE." The Machinery Always Too Small for the Electric Lleht Pltnt. It Baa Been Trade and Pay Boat -From the Tery First. "Your Uncle Steve's" earmarks are plainly seen In the stuff the Journal Is printing daily in defense of the mismanagement of the electric light plant. The logic of his argument is that everyone who criticizes the extrava- gaoce of the electric llijbt committee is opposed to the electric light plant. On this same theory the tax payer who contends that the streets are costing too much ia opposed to street improvements. Toe trouble about the electric light plant, the Pharos repeats, is that thecomraittee bought machinery repeatedly that proved too small and therefore worthless. This happened not once, but several times. It has oeen trade and pay boot from the very start. It is as though the Pharos publishers should buy a slow, country hand press for use In Logansport, and after finding It of no account for their use, make the mistake of buying another cheap machine that would soon have to be thrown out also. The electric light committee has shown Incapacity repeatedly and "Your Uncle Steve" will not be able to restore it in the public confidence by newspaper scribbling.

Wiley, of the department of agriculture, is now In Indiana for the purpose of consulting with those who are most interested n the promotion of the sugar beet ndustry in this state. He visited Evansvllle this wsek, where there is ,alk of building a sugar beet factory. There have been many small plats of round cultivated in beets in Indiana this season, and beets grown here are being sent 1 in to Purdue unl- •erslty, where they are being ana- yzed free of cost to the producer, The result is quite surprising, many jeets sent in showing a much larger per cent of sugar than the average of >eets produced in France and Germany. Beets from northern Indiana un in many Instances as high as 18 per cent sugar. This is about one- hlrd more than the average of beets )roduced in localities where the beet sugar industry has been firmly established. CIT£ AND FAR* TAXES. WORLD'S FAiR.CHICAGO, 1893 Statistics Being Gathered by the Indiana Bureau. State Statistican Conner is now collecting add tabulating, for the first time In the history of the state, the amount of taxes placed upon the tax duplicates by incorporated cities and towns and collected by slty and town treasurers. The state has never had a complete statement of all taxes levied In the state, and the bureau hopes that the city and town lerks will make accurate ana complete reports, and so enable the mreau to make reliable and valuable compilations. In future an abstract of the city and town tax duplicates will be taken annually. A com- >arison of amount and rate of taxation in the several cities and towns will bs very interesting to municipal ax payers. Dirorce Case Dismissed. The divorce case of Fred C. Bennett against Louisa M. Bennett, filed Thursday, was dismissed yesterday at plaintiff's cost. The YandalU Office*. There is a rumor to the effect that the Vandalia company has .decided to remove the offices of the Michigan division back to Logansport. It is said there Is not room enough at at Terre Haute. OIL SOt'ES. Good Lnck for the Drillers at New WaTerly. The company drilling the well at New Waverly has thus far met with no obstacles and the drill is now down about 600 feet. Trenton rock will be reached early next week. The contractors for the Mexico well have had much 111 luck. Water poured in so copiously that work had to be suspended for several days. The Inflow of water bas now been curbed and drilling resumed. The drill is down about 800 feet. It is likely that the New Waverly well will be drilled in before the Mexico well. The well at Denver was drilled in last week. No oil was obtained and the well was abandoned. The Peru Chronicle says that oil was obtained from the well drilled la southwest of Peru on the Shuman farm south of the Wabash river. The well has qeen plugged up and a rush of oil speculators has been made in that direction to secure leases. Much territory Is being teased In the vicinity of Royal Center and every foot of territory in the eastern part of the county that can be leased bas been acquired by some company or other. CALDWELL'S P08IHON. The Indianapolis News Takes Issue With Him. The Indianapolis News takes issue with Bank Examiner Caldwell on the proposition to establish government savings banks. It says: "Mr. Geo. B. Caldwell, of Detroit.addressed the bankers' convention yesterday,strongly opposing the proposed creation of postal savings banks. He thinks nothing can be said in their favor. But in other countries where the plan has been tried It has worked well and has not Interfered with the business of private bankers or savings banks. The postal savings bank virtually creates a new field. It encourages people in remote villages and sparsely settled communities to deposit their savings, and to save in order to deposit. Many people have confidence in the government that are very doubtful of savings -banks and building and loan associations- These, even It they could readily reach banks or other depositories'for savings, are reluctant to avail themselves of them." New Waverly OH Mr. E Sihmidt, a local stockholder In the New Waverly well, received a telephone message this afternoon to the effect that the 'drill had been stopped several hours on account of water In the well, but casing had been put in and drilling resumed. A depth of over 600 feet has been reached. The drillers believe firmly that they will find oil. They report that a well just four miles east of them, drilled in last night, proves to be one of the best producers in the Peru field. The drillers on the well a mile and a half northeast of New Waverly, lost the drill from the rope this morning and had to atop operations. A Conrt House Wedding. Samuel C. Stoner,of Miami county, and Mary E. Relder, residing south of town, entered the Clerk's office today shortly after noon and procured a marriage license. Stepping into the clerk'3 private office they proceeded to enjoy a wedding undisturbed, but only Jor a few minutes, when the friends who bad followed Intruded upon the scene »nd explanations began to be made. Nevertheless the couple were married then and there. May they be happy and prosperous Is the wish of many friends. The kiss- Ing of the bride was postponed, the witnesses being all men but Deputy Clerk Mrs. Flynn. Esduire Fender presided. Never Falls to Please. Rentz-Santley coming to town. That seems a red letter night of enjoyment for the amusement foving public. The company has never failed to please, and this year offers stronger attractions than they ever did before by producing new buries ques with all the accessories of magnificent costumes, beautiful scenery, and, of course, a galaxy of loveliness not to be equalled by any combination on the road.
