Caldwell, cf Detroit, national bank examiner, is .n the city on a tour of inspection, and while here will make an examination of the condition pf the national banks. He is looking well and has fully recovered from the effects of the many anxious days he spent here last summer in adjusting the affdirs of the State National bank. One of the editors of this paper met Mr. Caldwell at Mackinac Island last August and he and wife and daughter took dinner with the Logansport party. The dinner consisted largely of the big flsh caught at the Snow islands. In speaking of the condition of the Logansport banks, Mr. Caldwell said today, "You may say that after four months the business of the City National bank exceeds my expectation and is apparently in a very healthy condition. In fact the publ'shed statements of Oct. 5th shows all three banks here to be 'very strong So far as the government or the shareholders of the old State National bank are concerned, we are very anxious that the suits started by Wm.M.Elliott and Dennis Uhl should come to trial. The government'be lieves its position correct and seeks the fullest investigation by the court. We are more than anxious that the people should bave the testimony from both sides and the comptroller will then be better able to determine what lia bllity exists, If any, against any o the directors or the old bank and what further measures should be taken by him." Annual Autumn Cloak:. Rur and General MerctiandiBeBale- TOrtN»aiP8 SOT LIABLE. Decision in Appellate Court In Regard to Cattle Killed or Worried by Dogs. The decision In the appellate court that a township cannot be held liable (or the value of cattle, horses and hogs that are killed or worried by dogs, occasioned considerable surprise among lawyers, and excites much unfavorable criticism among farmers. The act of March 5, 1891, declaring townships liable in such cases has generally been held to be In force, and most of the townships over tbe state bave been paying claims for injuries to such stock, under advice from the attorney- general's office. The case in point was where suit was brought for a toorso that had been bitten by an alleged mad dog, whose bite was claim- to have caused death. WORLD'S FAiR, CHICAGO. 1893 Diphtheria.

"Your Uncle Steve" in again coming to the defense of the mis management of the electric light plant, says "there has never been a single trade, never a boot to pay'. 1 What is the use of such a rank statement. About a year ago the city traded two JOOO-llght machines for two 1800-llght machines and paid boot amounting from 1500 to $700, while the'additional cost for new foundations and making the change run the total up to about $1000. If that was not a trade and a payment of boot, probably Uncle Steve can explain what it was. He is an expert ic legerdemain, as is shown by his success in keeping from the public the real expenses of the electric light plant. No one outside T.he charmed circle has any idea what the electric light is costing. The true facts will never be known until the plant is put Into the hands ol persons who bave nothing to conceal from tbe public. INCESDURY FIRES Are Becoming Entirely Too Namerous in Cans County.
