Some strong language is being \ised and the convention .promises to be inter- e>ting from a political standpoint. T. H. Simpson and C.

No Republican candidates have been talked of except James Walklin for Clerk, Albert Osborne, the city editor of the Columbus World, who was shot and killed by Editor Elliott, of the Capital, the particulars of which appeared in our telegraph columns, was formerly employed on the Wabash Times and was a cousin of Enos Osborne, jr., of this city.

Captain Coulson has been cruising in the Behring sea all summer watching for poachars on Uncle Sam's seal islands. He is now at San Francisco, Cal.

Tlie LosruiiNport Bill Aftords .ail. <M>• 'linrtiriiity. for •> l>entocra>lc The Indianapolis Journal givesjthe following account of the action of the State Senate on the Logansport itinerant vendors bill. The Republican Senators got an opportunity last evening to rub the protection idea in on the Democrats, and they improved it. It came in connection with the ''passage of Senator Magee's bill to license itinerant vendors of goods. The title of the bill says its purpose is to protect purchasers from fraud, but the real purpose is to protect merchants from the •-bankrupt-stock" fakir who rents a room, advertises a stock of goods alleged to have been rescued from a fire, sells to the public a lot of shoddy stuff and then departs for other fields. . Upon the call of the roll upon the passage of the bill. Sentor Boyd explained his vote by Baying that he believed in the theory of protection. He believed that the legitimate merchant who sold good goods, who was afixture where be did business who paid taxes and helped to maintain his city and State government, was entitled to protection from the irresponsible fraud who paid no taxes, and was responsible to nobody, He believed in the broader theory of to American indus- which depended the of the country as foreign manufacturers, who paid no taxes and who had no interests here further than to dispose of their wares. He believed in the McKinley bill, w hich contained the germ and essence of protection, and he therefore voted for the bill. SenatorsHarlan, Loveland, Mount, Shockney and Hays explained their votes in the same strain, much to the disgust and uneasiness of the Democrats who had to sit and take it. One or two Democrats voted against the measure, giving as a reason their utter abhorrence of anything that savored of protection legislation. However, the bill passed. THE TAXATION BILL protection tries, upon prosperity against the Defeated in tlie Houne on Account the Kallroad Tax Feature. The taxation bill was defeated in the House yesterday the railroad ^tax feature being the objectionable clause r The vote was as follows: Yeas. 40; nays 53, and the announcement cf the result was received with applause.. The Democrats who voted with the Republicans against the bill were Messrs. Beauchamp, Beigler, Bernethy, Branstetter, Byrkit, Ebert, Farlow, Faulkner, Fowler, Gent, Gray Hench, Inman, Johnson, of Carroll, Kelleher, Kelley, Kern, Kyle, Lee, Moon, Osborn, Pickhardt, Koscoe, Smith, of Posey, Stall, Teal, Thompson, Timmons, Trimble and Troy. The action of to-day causes a very serious complication of affairs. While the bill, as it will probably be passed eventually, makes various needed amendments in the tax'laws of the State, yet it does not provide any means, with the railroad tax provision stricken out, for increasing the revenues of the State, and everybody concedes lhat something must be done in this direction. As. soon as the vote was announced in the House this morning a News reporter asked Mr. Oppenheim, chairman of the ways and means committee, and Speaker Niblack, what would now be done. Both gentlemen said there was only one thing to do now, and that \vasto raise the State tax levy. A proposition like this will be bitterly opposed in both Houses.—Indianapolis News, Tried and True Is the positive verdict of the people who take Hood's Sarsaparilla. \Vhen used according to directions the good effects of this excellent medicine are soon felt in nerve strength restored, that tired feeling driven off, a good appetite created, headache and dyspepsia relieved, scrofula cured and all the bad effects of impure blood overcome. For a good blood purifier, take Hood's Sarsaparilla. o. Gratifying 10 All. The high position attained and the universal acceptance and approval of the pleasant liquid, fruit remedy Syrup of Figs, as the most excellent laxative known, illustrate the value of tbe qualities on which its success is based and are abundantly gratifying to the California Fig Syrup Company, Puerilism at Peru.

Miller ot'Greeiimburi, .\\>• 'pointed to tlie•• VacaiVcy. ft . : Indianapolis News: Governor Hovey this afternoon appointed Judge John D, Miller, of Greensburg, to the va- caacy of the Supreme Bench caused by the death of Judge Berkshire. The Indianapolis bar was almost a unit for Judg-e Miller, and his appointment was urged by attorneys from various parts of the State. John D. Miller was a Hoosier farmers' boy, born in Johnson county in 1843. After passing through the common schools he entered Hanover College at the age of fourteen. When the war began he lacked one year of graduation. He laid aside his books and volunteered as a soldier in the Seventh .Regiment commanded by Colonel Dumont. He served three years and was honorably discharged. At the close of the war he read law with Overstreet & Hunter, of Franklin, Ind. When his law studies were finished he located at Greensburg, where he formed a partnership with Gaven & Hord. He. was a member of the Legislature in 187273, and was prominent in the legislation of those sessi rus—particularly in the legislation reorganizing the courts of the State, abolishing the Common Pleas fJoiirt and establishing the Superior Courts. I 1 or twenty years Mr. Miller has been a constant practitioner at Greensburg, and be has always stood, well with the bar of that and adjoining counties. Mr. Miller is commanding in appearance, is an agreeable man socially, and is popu- ular wherever known. An Excellent Performance. For a company playing at popular prices the Melville Sister's company playing'a week's engagement here is undoubtedly the strongest that has been here tor some years. The performance of that ever popular play. "The T.VO Orphans'' last evening was one of the most pleasing performances of the season and far better than many which theater goers have paid; treble to see. Tho Melville sisters are especially qualified to take the role of the persecuted orphans and their acting was warmly applaud- el. The support was excellent throughout. .Particularly, worthy of notice was the work of Allen Demond as Pierre, the cripple. and the Chevalier. The ^balance of the support was able and the costuming was fine. To-night this company will present the thrilling drama, "The Sea of Ice,"''with all the scenic and mechanical effects necessary for its proper presentation. The management gives the assurance that the play will be properly staged and costumed, and not butchered as it has been done here before. The company merits good houses and will surely have them the balance of the week. LOGANSPORT BOOM. The Journal Propose* J»suliisf a Ittaiu- motli Industrial Edition.

The retail salesmen held their 'regular meeting last night and business of great importance to the union was transacted. The meeting was well attended and enthusiasm was warm. When President Webster called upon the union for a volunteer to assist him .in the collection of park subscription guarantees, the name of genial Harry Frank, jr., was suggested. The suggestion met with electric response and Mr. Frank accepted the responsibility of solicitor for the union amid unanimous acclamations. The union has deep seated love for 'our city's prosperity.'

CLOTH tops are again being accorded a considerable degree of popularity in both men's and women's goods. Cloth is superior to leather in every iVav* except durability, and ever, in that it holds its own in some cases as against- 1 some of the leather used for tops. Cloth ig the best material for shoe tops'on J 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 arid transpire^ thruugh the meshes of the textile fabric much more readily than thougn. ttie leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture, and exceU leather 0 used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cloth does nof crack, scale turn red or grow stiff and chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable and smooth fitting than leather. It makes a handsome effect by contrast when used witb leather vamp. It is more "dressy," and, in fact, as we said at the. outset better f6j3" toppings than the leather generally used in everyway, providing a first-clas 1 ? quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe tops that are not desi.able, just as there are^kinds of leather used for shoe soles that are 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 are more expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to fancv figured. OTTO KRAUS i S i 1 SMOKED MEAT Of this Brand will be found Select Goods: Slaughtered and Cuiei by I " 11, .n* W. C.
