Collett, and Misa Bird Buchanan of Metea, will be married Febuary 20th at the home of the bride's lare&ti. At a meeting of the Ministerial Association of Logansport yesterday the following was unanimously adopted: Again this week from another source comes a request to tho Ministers' Association for action on our part, dealing in political affairs and seeking to accomplish results lor the public good through clril law. This time the request is for us to petition the legislature and to secure the signature of our people and others, In favor of the enactment into law of what is known aa the "Nicholson Bill" now pending before the State legislature, which bill purports to be advanced legislation for the restraint and limitation of the liquor and saloon business in the State. While we are all strongly In favor of the utter extermination of the saloon from our nation, yet we are also de- tlrout that the Immediate legislation for the limitation and taxation of the liquor traffic shall be the bast possible under the present conditioned public opinion. If the "Nicholson Bill" Is the best form In which new legislation can be cast, so as to bo enforced, then we are in favor of [.its passage, but we confess that we arc not in a position to judge properly as to whether It Is the best or not. We desire also to say that we are as much averse to going into the lobby business before the Legislature as two weeks ago .we announced ourselves to be averse to going into the detective and police business. Yet we claim that we have the same rights, privileges and"reBpOD6lbilltles as any oth«r equal number of our fellow citizens. -Nor are we willing to yield any of our powers^and prerogatives as citizens because wo are ministers of the gospel. It ia simply a question as to how, being ministers, we can most effectually dlsohirge our duties as citizens and affect public opinion. We have been congratulated bysome of the press of the city upon our purpose "to attend to our own business and leave the administration 'and enforcement of' law and order to those to wtom it rightly belongs," This is » doubtful compliment though.so wall Intended, and we frankly eay that we do not relish it. "Heaven save ua from our friends," we are constrained to say. Wo are praised to much. It is every citizen's business to look after and aid the enforcement of law in this American Republic of ours, or liberty will perish from our land. There has been entirely too much "attending to their own buflinees" on the par); of preachers, doctors, lawyers, ftrmers, and business men generally, ivnd leaving the enforcement ol law to the neglect of those whose sworn business it is to execute the will of the peopla as expressed in law. Civil officers are but the servants of the people and if these servants have not been faithful In efforts for ttae enforcement of law it must be because their neglect has been winked at-by the people, or these public officials will speedily be called to accounts. For example there are buildings In this city which hare been repeatolly pointed out to us as bawdy houses for yean, and lomeof us have seen enough to convince us of the kind of lives the occupants of these houses are leading and some of us have seen the alleged owner of these houses, a man of means and ia professional life, attending to repairs on this property ,'n such a way as to satisfy ua entirely of his ownership or responsible agency thereof, anA yet these houses are not suppressed if they are in the least disturbed by the police. The owner of these houses and the owners of tther houses of the same unsavory reputation, are unmolested In their enjoyment of unholy and unlawful gains from lust and vice. Is it possi. ble thit the Police B«ard have no knowledge of these things? Has the the Mayor and city council DO power and no responsibility in such a ttate of affair*? Almost dally we tee men on tha street who have been pointed out to ua ai professional gambler* and their looka and habit* of life do not belie their reputation. Ladies and gentlemen are named to ni as belonging to private clubs whose membership dues go to the purchase of "prizes" which are played for with all the zest and feverish Interest or nervous coolness which enters Into the game of a '-professional." Do the members of our honorable Police Board feel that if they take in the professional gamblers from their dene down street, they will also be compelled (to be consistent) to arrest the lady gamblers who play only for costly or cheap "prizes" in their parlors. Truly b there any- moral difference between professional and non-professional gambling—between playing "for money" and "for prizes" which cost tnonev? Public attention has already bean called to tho notorious fuel that saloons opan wide their doors on days when the atate law directs that they shall be closed, and they are otherwise constantly violating; law by soiling to minors, etc. Of course no law executes itself, and when the sworn servants of the people fall to execute the law to the best of their ability, it is our business, It is every dozen's par* ticular business, to call these pub'.ic officials to account, and none of us have any right to be so engaged in "attending 1 to our own business" as to leave these neglectors of sworn duty without a reckoning. When each of the three m«mbers of the present Board of Police Commli (loners was appointed some of we ministers were given strong assurances by their personal friends and In eome cases by the appoUtees themselves, that they would be uncompromisingly in favor o' the atrlct administration of law as it exists in reference to saloons gamblers and houses of 111 fame, as wall as all other laws. We are not going to announce here our present impressions of the fullfillment of these assurances, but wo will say that we are thoroughly and unanimously of the conviction that God and the American people will yet find a way of des. troying the power of the saloon In the politics of this cation and the sooner individuals in public life, in any and all parties, come to openly aoknowleclge and resist the influence of the saloon as base and debasing and seek to find some practical method of overthrowing this po* Brand bringing 1 ' it into subjection, the better H will "02 for themselves and for the nation. The people are not always going to forgive the parties or the Individuals in public life who cator to this lawless power. Many of our railroad corporations have made it a part Of their policy to discharge any employes who are found to be patrons of the saloon. Our great labor unions, all along tho line, are warning their men against danger from saloon patronage. We hall all these things as evidence that the people of this land are coming to recognbe the saloon as a public enemy and to demand practical measures for dealing 1 with it as such. Time was only a few years ago when in the average town and city In this country the successful local politician waa expected to bo an habitual' tippler at the saloon bar and a recog- nlzad patron of saloon interests, now one who successfully seeks tb.3 suffrages of the people must cover up his tracks well if he has any sort of aa alliance with the saloon. In our judgment it is only a question of time when the -people will refuse their suffrages to any and all who are not openly committed to opposition to this lawless and destructive Institution. We remember the peliti- cr.l maxim "eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." And we commend this to the attention of all our fellow citizens in their watchfulness against the domination of the rum power, Unanimously adopted by the ministers' association. DOUGLAS P.

Winch Will Probably be Unlit •• the Tlpton Xanonlc Lsdgo Property— Slay include «n Opera Home. Isaac Shideler, Walter Oimer, W. D. Pratt, John E. Redmond and Joseph Llnville arc the members o* a committee that represents, with ibe power to act, the six masonic lodges of the city in the matter of the erection of e. I'empleon the lot owned by Tipton lodge, at the northeast corner of North and Fourth streets. This committee now has under consideration various plans and propositions that were submitted at a recent meeting. The printing firm of Wilson, Humphreys&Co., will, if suitable terms can be arranged, loaee part of the proposed building for their establishment. It seems probablo that the building will be four stories In height, and in that case it is probable that the Bret and second floors will be occupied, all but fourteen feet facing on North street, by an opera house, with a main entrance and foyer on Fourth street. In that space an auditorium with a seating capacity of 1,200 or 1,400 could be secured. 7ho space next to North street could be, given over to offices on the first anO, second floors, and the entire third floor would be for rant, while the lodge halls of the Masonic lodges would be located on the top story;. The propositions from possible tenants were received with the idea of considering them in the preparation of definite plans for the proposed building, AIR DOES NOT KILL. KEESLIXG- AS AN AUCTIONEER. The Wtud frecedlnn » allot Found to B* U»rmle»*. The old belief that projectiles somo- times kill men in battle without hitting 1 them must be abandoned In view of recent scientific experiments. It was for- .merly supposed that the air compressed and driven before the projectile, an& technically called "tho wind of th« shot," was capable of striking a fatal' blow, and even army surgeons have or- soutcd to this theory. But, says Youth's Companion, experiments have shown that the alt driven by a projectile, while capable of. beinff instantaneously photographed In tho form of a wave, does not posses* sufficient energy to produce nny destructive effect. Another theory which recent Investigations have overturned Is that the ox- plosive effect sometimes exhibited by- bullets is due to compressed air driven into the wound. Experience shows that tho appearance of explosion arises from tho nature of the substance penetrated 1>y the bullet. If this substance is plastic or watery, the impulse of tlK projectile it distributed laterally in all direction* among- its particles, and they are driver, asunder. Such an effect has been noticed ic, battlo when bullets have entered tho brain, and accusations of using- explosive projectiles, contrary to the comity of nations, have been based upon them. By firing 1 bullets into wet dough, every indication of an explosion lias been produced, although the same bullets, fired with identical velocity, into solid sub- sU..ices 3il>'e bone, made' only round, clean-cut boles.

Beginning at 10 a. m. yesterday at the door of the court house, county treasurer B. F. Keesllng appeared in the character of an auctioneer before a small, but attentive audience. Tbres hundred pieces of land in all parts of Caes county were offersd for sale for delinquent taxes. One hundred and fifty tracts were sold at prices ranging from $2 to $1,200; the total amount realized being about $4,000. Mr. Keeping himself cried the sale aid made short work of it. finishing fn one hour and forty mlnntea, thus ri- vallng "Cyclone Bill." One farm of 200 acres in Washington township brought $1,200. just enough to cover the taxes. If settled within six months, the owtcrs of lands sold at tax sales must pay the amount of the taxes with ten per cent. Interest. After six months hare passed fifteen per cent, will be charged. After a year has passed twenty five per cent, is added, and in two years, if not redeemed, the land passes into the purchaser's poscesslaa. •lelghlnc Party Upict. A horse driven, by Lam.

March came in that eventful year oi 1S11; and xvhcu the morning; of the- SOtli dawned all Paris was in the streets. For like wildfire spread Uic rumor} there is a baby at the Tullcrws! Every hour tho crowd firew denser. At open windows, along 1 the streets, in the great garden of the Tuileries, people wailed expectant, listening for the voice of the cannons of the Invalid soldiers' homo to tell whether tho baby was a -boy or ft girl. Of course everyone hoped it was'B. boy,for that meant an heir to the thron* of France—their future emperor. At the first boom, says St. Nicholas, a mighty silence fell upon the listening- city. Every one stopped, intent, anxious. One—two—three, they counted. Boom, boom! went the guns-up to nineteen — twenty — twenty-one. The silence was intense, the anxiety profound. Twenty-two! There came a mighty cheer, a roar from thousands and thousands of throats. Bats were flung aloft; people cried with joy, and) danced and hugged each other, an<2 cared no more to count, though thW guns boomed away until the full salutaj of one hundred and one was fired. For] that twenty-second boom told the storyj —the baby at the TniJeries was a boy. ; Then, out of tho cheering 1 , came K! mighty shout: "Long live the empcrorl! Long 1 live the empress! Long 1 live thai king of Rome!" For that was to be thai title of this baby prince, whoso motherj was an empress, whose father wan greater than a king. '. H« Wu» >'ot a Clntton. A certain senator tvho has a reputation for making long-winded speeches was holding the floor when a certain other senator got up in his scat and slowly wended his way out of the senate chamber, evidently to escape th» speech, "Why don't you. stay and listen to your confrere?" a friend asked jokingly, of the senator, as he came iato th« lobby. "My constituents did not send ma here to do penal servitude," was tha reply, as the senator shuffled his way alon;? the corridor toward the restaurant And he said it without* smile.—Washington Star.
