WHY SO M&T EEGULAE PHYSICIANS PAIL IT Is to be regretted tbat the north end of Third street, frunj Broadway to the Eel river bndpe, was not improved with the rest of Third street. Boss HANNA will pull down on the hime streich this week. His chief effort has been to prove tbat it was Mark Banna who discovered William McKlDley and that it was Mark JTsnna who is responsible for Mc- Kinley'3 election to the presidency. WILT-JAM D. BYKUM is in slumping the state against the regular Democratic candidate for jeovernor. He expresses the hope tost the Democrat* will he beaten. Before the next campaign, Bynum will throw ofl his Democratic garb- and openly advocate Republican principles. It would be more .honor able to do so now. THE Democratic editors of Illinois at their recent meeting in Chicago unanimously passed resolutions endorsing the Chicago platform of 1896, recognizing the monev question as the paramount issue and winding them up by sending greeting; to William Jennings Bryan. The meeting was atttended by 125 Democratic editors, nearly every prominent city in Illinois being represented. T6 Cure Female, nis—Somo True Reasons "Why Mrs. Pinkliam is More Successful Than the Family Doctors THE Republicans of Ohio made much ado about the election of Gal Brlce to the United States senate. Brice, they said, was a millionaire atid a corporation man. Now they are supporting Hanna, a millionaire and one of the most brazen monopolists in the country, Although he denies it, appearances indicate that he 18 connected with, the bankers syndicate that ts now scheming to rob the government of $20,000,000 in the Uaion Pacific railway deal, Ohio could not send to the United States senate a man who Is more closely identified with the corporations than Hanna, He is recognized as a bood- ler, and such men are unsafe In any legislative, capacity^ LOGANSPORT is not growing so fast tbat it should become necessary to supply the electric light plant with additional machinery every year. At tbe beginning, the number of private consumers of electric light might have been underestimated. But those connected with the management of this public enterprise should now have a good idea of the power required to supply all the light needed and should govern themselves accordingly. To do otherwise is to put the" city to needless expense every year. Electric lighting Is past the experimental stage and the city of Lfgansport containing a population of 20,000 people has a monopoly of this system of lighting Now that England has rejected overtures lor the reestabllshment of the double standard, what will the United States do? What will the McKinley administration do? Will It yield to the dictation of English bankers and Indirectly assist the money power In forcing the world to make gold the only medium of exchange? John Q. Carlisle in his great speech In congress in 181S de clared that the conspiracy formed to destroy one-half the metallic money of the world would entail more suffering upon the human race than all the wars, pestilences and famines of the past. There are two nations that have tbe power to force the restoration of silver coinage—Mexico and the United States. These nations are the source of supply for three- fourths of the silver of the world. They are the nations that can do the people of the world a power of good by forcing silver to become a competitor of gold in the monetary affairs of the world. The longer the restoration of. silver coinage is delayed, the greater the hardships to be endured when the day of restoration comes. Although our silver money is legal tender today it is kept on a parity with gold by the promise to redeem In gold, It the government, should exercise its privilege to redeem In silver the burden on gold would be released and the value of a silver dollar would equal that of a gold dollar. City Twee*. Taking the years 1888, '89 and '90 «s criterion* by which to measure the general expenses ol the city, the city tax levy lor general purposes this year should have been materially reduced. The toul expenditure* lor jrtDoral purpose* lor (hose years were 1888, fU.«0886; 188«, t4J.7 18»0,15I,I01M. In 1890 th« ftf expenditure* of ine city wen nlgber ban the two preceding years. In hat year the street expenses were .12,559.90; firs department, «10,16.71; police department, $5,800.86; Ity officers, $7,162.93; specific, $6,28.35; electric light, $7,980,16; engineer, «1,162 42; printing, 1600. Now it is claimed that tbe electric ight department pays its own way and puts money Into the treasury. This then should enable the city to .ut oft $8,000.00 of expense hereto- ore paid for street lighting, and as compared with. 1890 should eave tbe general expenses ol the city at something; like $44,000. The tax rate established at the recenD •ession of the council is 77 cents on the $100 for general purposes. This evy should provide not less than 850,000. To this may be added $14,00 from liquor licenses which makes a total, after omitting the excess revenues from electric lighting, of nearly $65,000 available for general purposes fur tbe coming year. Does ;bis mean tbat the anticipated ex- )enditures for general purposes for ;be coming year are to be $20,000 in excess of what they were in 1890? it so in what departments are the increased expenditures probable? A woman is sick ; some disease peculiar to her Bex is fast developing- in her system. *he goes to her family physician and tells him a- story, but not the whole story. She holdssornethingback, loses her head, becomes agitated, forgets what she wants to say. and finally conceals what she ought to have told, and thus completely mystifies the doctor. "is it any wonder, therefore, that the doctor fails to cure the ilisease? Still, we cannot blame the woman, for it is very embarrassing- to detail some of the symptoms of her suffering, even to her family physician. It was for this reason that years ago Mrs. Lvdia E. Pink- _ him at bvnn. Mass., determined to step in and help her sex. Having had considerable experience in treating female ills with her Vegetable Compound, she encouraged the women of America to write to her for advice in regard to their complaints, and, being a woman, it was easy for her ailing sisters to pour into her ears every detail of their suffering. In this way she was able to do for them what the physicians were unable to do simply because she had the proper information to work upon, and j from the little group of women who sought her advice years ago a great armv of her fellow-beings are to-day constantly applying for advice and relief " and the fact that more than one hundred thousand of them have been successfully treated by Mrs. Pinkham during the last year is indicative of the grand results which are produced by her unequaled experience and . training. Xo phvsician in the world has had such a training, or has such an amount of information at hand to assist in the treatment of all kinds of female ills, from the simplest local irritation to the most complicated diseases of the womb. This, therefore, is the reason why Mrs. Pinkham, in her laboratory at Lvnn Mass., is able to do more for the ailing women of Ameriea than the family physician. Any woman, therefore, is responsible for her own suffering who will "not take the trouble to write to Mrs. Pinkham for advice. The testimonials which we are constantly publishing from grateful women establish beyond a doubt the power of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to conquer female diseases. RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. need,'says Bishop Gaines, to colonize American negroes in Africa or anywhere else. Tbe race is being bleached out. A few generations more will see the disappearance of the pure black type. This view of the case is commended to whom it may concern. Oklahoma. The boomers who planted their standard in Oklahoma eight years ago planned for the future better than even their enthusiastic souls dreamed. No part of the Union, not eveti California, has more resources agriculturally than this splendid young boomerland. Agriculturally it seems to be a region where north and south meet and mingle harmoniously. Cotton will grow luxuriantly. So will wheat, as well as in Canada. Guthrie, the capital of the territory, is sitmated in Logan county. In this county the present season a farmer has raised a wheat crop from 65 acres that, at $1 a bushel, will bring him $1,950. It averaged 30 bushels to the acre. A farm of 200 acres in the older states that returned $1,950 from The European Dictator. The partition of Poland stands as one of the colossal outrages of history. The partition of Greece between Turkey and Germany, that, too, with, the consent and approval of all the rest of Europe, will stauc in time to come as another such outragts. For that is what the termination of the Greco-Turkish war amounts to. When an individual borrows money recklessly and beyond his power to pay it, he goes into bankruptcy. A nation must do the same, and that is tbe case of Greece. Sbe has no more say in the so called treaty of peace which is being forced down her throat than a Digger Indian has. Nobody cares what she thinks of it. Greece borrowed money beyond hope of paying it. Turkey also borrowed money. The creditors in both cases were largely Berlin and Frankfort money lenders. The German bankers reviewed the situation and concluded there was more hope Turkey would pay them than tbat Greece would. The screws are accordingly put to Greece, and Turkey is dealt with leniently. The money lender rules this whole earth today. Now it is openly confessed that be rules the There is not the or patriotism or moral sense in the matter and no attempt co gloss over the situation with any appearance of such. The treaty of "peace" which the money lenders made for Greece provides that all her finances shall be put into the hands of a commission representing the foreign bondholders who lent her money. They shall dispose of all her revenues as they please. When they are satisfied that she can pay what she owes, then they may request Turkey to take her soldiers out of Thessaly. But politics of Europe, slightest sentiment U,Lt_ie.l £> W»LCa LiiilLi i t;iLu jai^-u f •*•) wv **. «*-»» all its sales, grain, dairy, live stock, the- prospect is tbat Greece never can ,^._ j. .-. .,«j ^_^^i,,-^^ O i«, -nav and that Turkey will never take poultry, fruit and everything else, would be considered a perfect Klondike. From Mulball, a little town in Logan county, were shipped this season 1,000 carloads of live stock. The nineteenth century citizen tames nature by great leaps and bounds. A child can remember the boom rush to Oklahoma. Xow smiling orchards, gardens, waving grainfields and the music of buzzing bee and grain reaper, the lowing of herds, greet the ear of the traveler, while his eye looks upon a people as peaceful, orderly and intelligent, as well equipped with the comforts of civilization, as any in the older states. Oklahoma is the paradise of the farmer, tbe gardener, the fruit grower and the live stock man. It is this year as prosperous as Kansas. Another solution, and an extraordinary one, has been offered for the negro problem of the south. Bishop Gaines of the African Methodist church presents the solution. In brief it is that the American negro is gradually undergoing the process known to the colored race itself as '' turning white.'' He says the black blood in this country is gradually being absorbed by the white through the not at all creditable process of amalgamation. For instance, there are 8,000, 000 people of colored blood in the Union. Of these only 3,000,000 are ptcre black. The rest all* hare more or less white blood in their reins. This is not the fault of the negro, but of the White man...Bishop Guinea believes that tbe prcx»M,wiU go'c« ti^Ttiio»«re no mow negroe* in Ameriofc-The no* will IM> "Ogo*nuii*e4 " pay and that Turkey will never take her soldiers out of Thessaly. On the contrary, the prospect is, further, that William of Germany and tbe sultan will partition Greece between them and •wipe her off the map of Europe. The money lender is the international dictator of Europe. When the rich people of the world are listed, Queen Victoria should not be left out. Sbe is already worth in the amount of her own private fortune $80, 000,000. If she should live a few years longer, as there seems every reason to believe she will, she can leave at her death nearly or quite $100,000,000 to her children. Albert of Wales will probably be too old to sport around much by that time, but in case his festive tendencies last him equal to those of King •Leopold of Belgium he will have enough to pay his little expenses a few years without borrowing anything from Americans who want to get into British high life.
