Two weeks more' remain to transact business of general importance. None of the important legislation demanded iy the people has been enacted.

Mention paper. feb!9d&w3m Tlie main feature of the bill is that which provides that all taxes collected from railroad property in the various counties shall be turned over by county treasurers to the State Treasurer and become a part of the general fund of the State. The success of the whole measure rests on this feature. The framers of the bill are so confident that this feattne will furnish the State all the revenue it needs that they provide for abolishing the 12-cent tax levy. Instead of increasing it .they propose to do away with It and rely entirely on the railroad tax for an increase of State revenue. This provision is characteristic of the Democracy, in that it is a mere make-shift. It does not discover any new source of revenue, nor increase the revenue by a single dollar. It simply takes revenue from the counties who will have to increase the revenue or local purposes by coming back on the people. It is a roundabout way of increasing the taxes on the people while trying, to make them believe they have been decreased. This provision would operate very unequally on different counties. The total valuation of railroad property in the State for 1SS9 was 166,241,532, but some counties contained a good deal more , than others. Thus Orange country had $171,005 worth; Perry county, §39,015, Union county, $172,870; Jefferson county, $181,51C; Harrison county, $150,410; Franklin county, $154,149, etc., while Allen county had $2,678,675 worth; Cass county, §1,226,977; DeKalb, $1,279,785; Elkhart, $1,263.480; Kosciusko, §1,414,355;" Lake, $3,858,445; LaPorte, $3,246,322 Marion, §3,078,368;N'oble, §1,282,455; Porter, §2,-720,094, and several other counties more than $1,000,000 each. It is perfectly plain therefore, that any rule which requires the counties to turn . over to the State the taxes collected' on railroad properyty will operate very unequally on the counties, and eventually on the people. Undoubtedly the State has a right to lay its hand on this source of revenue and claim for itself the taxes on railroad property, but is absurd to claim that this is revenue reform or a reduction of the burdens of the people. It will simply result in an increase of taxation for county purposes, and that very-unequally in different counties. It would be much more fair, equitable and honest to increase the tax levy. The whole bill is largely experimental, and this provision, which is the corner-stone of the entire measure, savors strongly of political quack- ery.—Indianpolis Journal. Ail Excellent Company. The Melville Sisters opened a week's engagement to a packed house at Dolan's last night and from the warm reception accorded the -initial, performance the company may be assured oi good houses'all week: This is one of the very best repertoire companies, play at popular prices, that ever held the boards here and includes some very good people. Miss Ida Melville is peculiarly pleasing in emotional parts while her sister Miss Rose .is a charming and piquant soubrette who immediately kicked and sang her way into favor. 'The support is strong, the work of Allen Demond, F. C. King, George E. Cadden, Sidney Hawkins, R. W. Powers and Maize Molyneaux being very good. Tl e comedy of King and Miss Rose Melville were quite popular features of- the performance. The play was Bartley Campbell's well-known comedy-drama "Divorce" and was rendered in a very satisfactory manner. To-night the new comedy-drama '•Jack o' the Mines" will be played. The people will not be slow to take aavantgo of the opportunity afforded by this company to see good'plays at pooular prices this week.

CLOTH tops are again being accorded a eonsiderable degiee of popularity^ )th men's and women's goods. Cloth is superior to leather in every wW in both except durability, and ever, in that it every holds its own in some cases as against; some of the leather- used for tops. Cloth i s the best material for 'shoe tops I " the case of persons whose feet have a tendency to perspire freely,as the surpln heat of the foot as well as its moisture is allowed to radiate and transpit thruugh the meshes of the textile fabric much'more readily than though fhj leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture,' and ex eels leather used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cloth does nof crack, scale, turn or grow stiff and chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable and smooth fit than leather. It makes a handsome effect by contrast when used with leather vamp. It is more "dressy," and, in fact, as we said at the outset, better tot toppings than the leather generally used in everyway, providing a first-clasf quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe tops «•*"$ are not desi.able, just as there are^kinds of leather used for shoe s-olcs that ar not desirable; some being cheap and poor quality, for use in cheap shoes! and some being line quality and intended more for-appearance than weat There is a grade of cloth for every grade of shoe, and the best grades are mor expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to fane figured. OTTQ KRATJS; MISS GRACE FULLER. She the WLJ] Be the Next Bride from Chief .Justice's Household.

They Will be Soldier* Bold. Lieut. French, recruiting- officer o the 19th Infantry with headquarter at Detroit, who established a recruit ing station here two weeks ago, has /received many applicants to join the regular army and quite a number havi passed the necessary examination, bu thus far but three have enlisted These are J. Albert Liennemann of this city and Mai-ion B. Thomas an d Floyd L. Thomas, of Burlington, al three of whom departed for Detroit on Saturday to report for service. They will be sent to Mackinaw where they will be put on garrison duty. Lieut. French and his men will probably leave here the latter part of the week and will go to Mansfield, 0. Itis expected, that several other men who have passed the examination will enlist before the week is up. The terms of enlistment are reasonable, the duties not too. arduous and it is perhaps strange that the ranks of the standing army should lack for recruits. The G. A.

Yesterday was an exceedingly un- proStably day for the local knights of the green table, and the members of the sporting fraternity went around with very dolorous countenances. It was gamblers day in the Circuit court and the entire force of long fingered gentry was there to plead guilty to the long string of indictments returned by the grand jury. Fines were assessed without regard to the feelings of those affected. As there, were several charges against some the fines ran up to a pretty notch in some instances, and John Condon's purse strings will have to relax considerably before the entire amount is settled. Among the familiar faces, each a more or less anxious look betraying, were seen Alf L. Anderson, Frank Jones, Will Scott Dick Richai-dson, Cy Farrell, John Keller Al Richart, Ford Campbell, Mil 1 Kramer, "Kit" Morrow, 01 Miller Schuyler Myers, George Parish, Charlej Grinup, Ike Johnson, Sam Apt anc Frank Green. Fines ran all the way from-$10 to $50 and the aggregate will turn a pretty penny into the coffers of the State. Judge McConnell was grim and unrelenting and his decisions dealt the heaviest blow the gamblers ever received here. MISS GKACE FULLER. affable in manner and very accomplished.
