When will theater goers, the orderly class of theater goers, be spared the insufferable nuisance inflicted by a gang of hoodlums who make a stampede for the door just before the cur- , tain falls on the last act, the noise produced completely drowning all that is being said on the stage.

' , A conference 6 f the representative of the farmers' and workingmen's organizations of the State was held at the English Hotel last night. It took steps to form a federation. The federation will be non-partisan, and for the purpose of cultivating a closer bond of union, so that all interested may have a more intelligent understanding of each other's wants, and thereby act in harmony in securing needful legislation. The following committee was appointed for the purpose of perfecting future plans of action: D. L. Thomas, Farmers" Alliance, chairman; W. H. Brown, F. M. B. A.; F. J. S. Robinson, Grange: T. M. Gruelle, Central Labor Union; 0. A. Johnson, K. of L.; D. F. Kennedy, State Federation of Trades.

We demand that this General Assembly redeem pledges made to the people on this question, and on failure to do so we shall make this an issue in the next campaign.''—Indianapolis News. ITIliinle IHabbltt 011 Trial. Yesterday at Indianapolis began the trial of Minnie Mabbitt charged with killing her babe. The story of the alleged crime is familiar to Journal readers as is also the history of the Mabbitt family whom the villainy of Amer Green first brought into prominence in the criminal records of the State. The jury was impannelled,- yesterday and the triai will continue for some days. The Indianapolis News says; "Rarely in the crime annals of Indiana has there been a case so full of dramatic incidents as the one that to-day involves the life of Minnie Mabbitt. The Mabbitt boys and girls, children of respected and upright parents, have had their names written in Indiana's criminal history as few other names are. For the pale-faced young woman, who was to-day brought into court, to answer the awful charge of an awful sin—a story of shame and murder, the public has given evidence of marked sympathy, a sympathy thaArextends to the old man trembling with the palsy of age and the breaking heart of grief, who sits beside her,, and to tbe mother, who, with "kind words, helps her unfortunate child to bear the burden. "Minnie Mabbitt is on trial for killing her unlawful babe. Every sentence of accusation wrings the hearts of her aged parents, whose cup 01 sorrow was long ago drained to tbe bitter dregs. The Mabbitt family has been an unfortunate one." Enpepsy. Thio is what you ought to have, in fact, you must have it, to fully enjoy life.

Senator Yaryan 'and others were upon their feet immediately after roll- call, each flourishing papers and asking to be recognized. All the. papers proved to'relate to the same subject, being memorials from employes of tbe Pennsylvania lines opposing the passage of House bill 22. The memorials come from Richmond, Logansport and other points along the line of the Pennsylvania railroad, and all had evidently been drawn by the same person. The memorials were written with a typewriter, and were word for word alike. It was very clear that the railroad company had gotten in its work, and that the same petition had been circulated in several sections of the State at the same time. Whatever may have been the control- lingmolive in attaching the signatures, it was plain that the circulation of the petitions had been engineered by one mind. The petitions were as follows. "We, the undersigned, employes of the Pennsylvania lines operated in the Stii-le of Indiana, desire to enter our protest against the passage of House bill No. 22, known as the Kelley bill. Said bill, as passed, will militate against the .voluntary relief department of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg, which is operated and conducted- by the employes of the road, of which we are members by our own volition. We find by actual experience that ihe benefits derived from the voluntary relief department, as supported by the employes, ;ire satis factory, and respectfully petition your honorable body to defeat the passage of the bill." The several petitions are signed by employes of the road, the number aggregating several hundred. The petitions were referred to the committee on labor.—Indianapolis News. The Melville Sisters Company played to a fair house last night and sustained the reputation so well established Monday night. Misses Ida and Rosa Melville are actresses of much merit and wide versatility and their support is excellent. "Jack O' the Mines" was presented in a very satisfactory manner last evening, the company acquiting itself admirable in the rather difficult play. To-night the old favorite, "The Two Orphans" will be given, the play being one in which the Melville sisters are especially qunllified to shine. On Saturday night a grand parlor suit will be given away to the holder of tbe lucky number and on Friday a mirror will be presented to the handsomest lady 'in the house and a silk hat to the homeliest man, the decision to be made by popular ballot. Mr. H. Hale, agent for S. E., Gross the great Chicago real estate man, who has opened a branch office at tbe Murdock hotel is not a stranger to Logansport. He has been here frequently and has many friends down town. He will be remembered as the lively "drummer" who made such a rattling speech on the commercial interests of Indiana on the occasion of Col. Kreuz- -berger's banquet and reception some months ago. It Mr. Hale can talk real estate as glibby and ably as he talked on his subject on the above memorable occasion Gross' interests will not suffer here. CLOTH TOP SHOES. CLOTH tops are again being accorded a considerable degree of pbpularitv in both men's and women's; goods. Cloth is superior to leather in eveiy <vd.y except durability, and ever, in that it holds its own in some cases as against' some of the leather used for tops. Cloth is the best material for shoe tops in the case of persons whose feet have a, tendency to perspire freely,as the surplus heat of the foot as well as its moisture is allowed to radiate and transpire th.ru.ugh the meshes of the textile fabric much more readily than though, the leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture, and excels leather used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cioth does not crack, scale, turn led or grow still 1 and chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable and smooth fitting 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 for toppings than the leather generally used in everyway, providing a fir-jt-clasa quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe top that are not desi.able, just as there ure^kinds of leather used for shoe soles that aie not desirable: some being cheap and poor quality, for use in cheap shoes, and some being fine quality and intended more for appearance than wear. There is a grade of cloth for every grade of shoe, and the best grades aie more expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to fa ,cy , figured. . OTTO KRAUS The water from the new North Side wells has scarcely had a fair show thus far, and before final, iudgment is passed upon it by those who are compelled to drink the murky fluid it should be given a test in fair weather, and under improved conditions. During the heavy rains which have prevailed since the water was turned on considerable surface water has seeped into the wells rendering the water far from agreeable to consumers. Superintendent We'n h is hard at work overcoming the diffidulty. and the wells will soon be in a condition to be tree from surface water. To Appollo Lodge Knights ol Pythias was conferred the honor of instituting-the new K. P. lodge at Bunker Hill and yesterday about fifty of the Knights, including the' band and the-Uniform Rank went to that pleasant Little town. The ceremony of instituting the lodge last night was one of the pleasantest affairs in the history of the order in this region. Twenty-five charter members were inducted in the mysteries of Pythianism and the new lodge starts off with bright prospects for the future.

PUR CELL, Druggist^ 418 Market Street. A drunken insurance agent named Sage was knocked out in a very becoming manner by the corporal on guard at the recruiting station at •'Ft. Tucker" last evening. The festive insurance agent got on a jag of considerable dimensions and. started out in search of trouble. He approached the recruiting station and commenced railing at the corporal who paid no attention to the fellow further than to tell him to go on about his business. The fellow continued his abuse and finally wound up by casting an insulting reflection on the parentage of every person connected with the regular army. This the corporal did not care to take in an amiable manner and the insurance agent, jag and all, found himself sprawling on the pavement. He got up only to tie knocked clear out into the muddy street. He rec- ognined that he had enough and staggered on down the street, filling the air with his opinions of Uncle Sam's army.
