M. Gloss on Frank Beii<Hii<: Sentenced (o Tu'O Year* In the "Pen"—Otlier State rasen ill Court. Yesterday morning- the jury in the case of Frank Bending, charged with obtaining money under false pretenses, brought in a verdict of guilty and sentenced him to imprisonment in the penitentiary for two years and a fine of $100. His attornies immediately made a motion for a new trial, and pending the same Bonding was released on bond of $1,200, an increase of $700 over his former bond. Me.lvin D. Roach, of Walton, was tried before a jury yesterday for the larceny of a buffalo robe from George Murphy, of Deer Creek township. The jury retired at 4 o'clock, and at midnight was still deliberating. Evidence was being heajd by the court last evening in the case of Chas. Lanharn charged with assault with intent to kill on Lewis Stanley. Both parties are from Adarnsboro. The evidence will be continued this morning:- Tlic Snv Gu* Company. Mr. Jacob S. Smith, of the American Gas Company, was in the city yesterday looking over the contracts signed by the citizens. Mr. Smith stated to a Journal reporter that it rested solely with the citizens of Logansport whether they would get cheaper g'as. Said he: "If enough contracts are signed to satisfy the expenditure on our part we will pipe the city, provided your City Council lets us in. You can say to the public that for various reasons these contracts must be signed before we go to the expense of piping. Without oar contracts should tbe other company reduce prices to compete with us no one would change to us and our plant would be worthless. You can also say that those contracts mean just what they say and that every man who signs one will receive gas for five years at twenty-five per cent less than he is paying now. 1 ' Park On being interviewed yesterday as to the progress of the park project, Mr. Weldon Webster said: "I was never-more^ happy over the prosperity of any event in my life. From the first day, over live months ago, ,up to the .present, although the undertaking has at times , suffered temporary abatement, the general results have been an uninterrupted chain of successes. None know the strategy and perseverance,the money, talk and writing that this affair has really cost, and yet to know as I know and to see as clearly as do I that nothing has been in vain; to see the ideal slowly but certainly assuming the real: this in itself is sufficient recompense for all past anxiety and labor." '•What are the present important features?' 1 "Briefly these: Two associations in the city have communicated with me, officially, and say that they will take special action in the line of raising private donations of money. It is more than likely that a certain financial association, one member of which has already donated liberally, will sign the subscription list." "Just at this moment Grain and Koutsch are engaged in drafting plans and specifications after the original plans. They are spending much time upon the work and are completing the plans to an exquisite nicety." "Charges? No, I am happy to say their, work, when done, would cost not less than $100 to $200, will be kindly donated to our city. This park project has turned up many noble citizens. I believe the proper material is present in Logansport to make of our city the most nourishing commercial center in northern Indiana." "The plat prepared by Messrs.Grain & Krutsch will show exact level?, grades, excavations, widths, etc. Mr. Osmer will carefully scrutinize the calculations and kindly lend his assistance." "To-day, Mr. George Cheeney took the levels along Eel river and Fifteenth street. We will be in shape to receive bids oa the contract by next Wednesday, I think, but no work will be begun till sufficient money is raised." A SOUTHERN OPINION. Henri Watterson'H EHtlmate of General William TccnrtiHch Sherman. The death of General, Sherman, says, the Lomsvi]ie ;j; C(5urier-Jo-drnal, takes' from the scenes of this 'life the last of • the great Union Generals, whose names during the sectional war in America reverberated: throughout .the. world.-*Ob the Confcdcii-ate .side, General Johnston: and Genernl Ueauregard are all that are left from amoiirr the Southern Generals of equal rank. Both are old men and must, in the course of nature, soon follow General Sherman to the grave. General Sherman's place, as a military man, will grow in history. He was not only a warrior of commanding force, CLOTH TOP SHOES. CLOTH tops are again being accorded a considerable degree of popularity m both men's and women's goods.

Tlicfr Narrow Fsonpe. The Richmond Palladium contains an excellent and exhaustive account of the .late disastrous railway wreck near that place Wednesday. Speaking of the narrow escape of Mrs. Englebrecht and, children, of this city, the Palladium says:—Mrs. Englebrecht was on her way to this city, with her three children—Emma, Paul and the baby—and how she and her three little ones were saved cannot be explained, unless providence intervened and g'uarded the safety.of'the children. She says: "I was seated in the ladies car with my children, the baby being in my aims. When the car went over I fell underneath the seats. The seat in front turned back and closed over me. A lady who was seated in front of me was lying on top of the seats that were over me. I gathered all my strength and held the seats up to protect my baby. The baby then commenced crying, and this brought me to my senses. I realized that I was not hurt badly. I called to my childrenT~aod to my joy they answered. They had been thrown to the end of the car near the stove. The stove was crushed in- and the fire came out of it. My little boy, Paul, got his head against it, and another little boy with him was also against the fire, and the saving of their lives belongs to my little girl Emma. She pulled them away from the fire, got some water and extinguished the fire on their clothing, which had already been ignited. The two litlc boys wore both bruised and burned about the head and face, but not seriously." Such presence of mind and heroism is rarely exhibited by adults under such excitement, and that this little girl should be the Savior of these two little lives makes her name worthy to go on record as the heroine of the ill-fated train. Mrs. Englobrecht was.bruised, but is able to be about. The baby has not a scratch, on it, and the little girl, Emma, sustained slight bruises." but a soldier of original genius and rare accomplishments. He thought out his movements with the same precision that he executed them. His study of the art of war was on a large scale. His nature was intense; and he carried with him into the field the resistless engineries of a tremendous martial spirit, vigor and enthusiasm, built upon a belief in his cause and in himself, which never flagged or' faltered. The notion, founded'on General Sherman's aggressive methods and unsparing' activity, that he was an inconsiderate or cruel man, did injustice to his real character. He was a man overflowing with g-enerous sympathies. But, impulsive, pugnacious, affectionate, choleric, as open as the day, he often got into trouble and put himself at a great disadvantage by his unguarded freedom of speech. Those who knew him we'll will always bear testimony to his lovable qualities; the soul of honor; a born democrat in his unostentatious fellowship with his fellow-men; andone of the most delightful of companions in all affairs,either-of work or play. He was a close observer, possessed a canny understanding- of hum-in nature, rfjid had acquired much of the lore of books. The relations between him and his friends were cordial to the last degree, and with his family and kindred, charming*. 'In a word, General Sherman was a soldier of whom any nation migtit be proud, and we record the tidings of his death with regret, tempered by the thought that, after a long and brilliant career, he leaves to his coun- •try a renown in the glory of which all who survive him, Southerners alike with Northerners, mag- share.
