LOGANSPORT has suffered less from the great depression In business during the past few years than any other city in Indiana. ON account of heavy biding by foreigners and reports of Injury to the crops In Argentina, wheat made a rise of 2 cents per bushel In the Chicago market yesterday. THE window glass wust has just raised the orlce of glass 20 per cent. But everybody is not required to buy window glass. The sugar tru«t, exacts something from every family In the land. Neither of these trusts could exist If It were not encouraged oy law. SILENT STJFFE11EES. Women do not Like to Tell a Doctor the Details of Their Private- Bto. - COL, CHAHLES DENBY, of Evans- •»llle, who has served this government as minister to China since 1885, Is to be succeeded by Col. C. P. Bryan, of Chicago. Col. Denby has shown himself to be a successful diplomat, and our relations with China during the time he represented this nation at Fekin have been, friendly. THE proposition to employ Chinese workmen In Illinois coal mines Is one of the high tariff lessons There Is a duty of 15 cents a too on coal. Chinese lahor can be obtained at about one-halt the wages paid American workmen. The profits of the mine owners will bo increased to the extent of the reduction In wages. THE Washington Post declares that "the elections, of 1.S97 have shown that the Democracy rebounds Cfrom the downfall of 1896 stronger and more confident ana combative than ever. Democracy exhibits every quality of heroism. It has courage, it has the genius of recovery and reconstruction, It knows not the meaning of dismay. Defeat, leaves It •without fear. Danger finds It without cowardice. Ills a miracle of vitality, of valor and of hope." COKN, the king uf all American products, Is to serve another use to mankind. A factory has been established at Owensburg, Ky., to manu- ture pulp from the Inner fiber of the cornstalks. This, It is stated, makes the best possible packing for battleships. It has the absorbent qualities of tne sponge, and when an armor plate has been pierced the puip takes up the wat°r and expands sufficiently to>fill the hole solidly, preventing a large overflow. The present managers of the factory contend that they can also produce a good Imitation of silk, a substitute for celluloid and a better quality of paper than can be made from wood. SINCE It Is proposed to hire Chinese miners to work the Illinois CJB! mines, the Gary law, excluding Chinese from coming to this country, will be appreciated. If Chinese immigration had not been prohibited, the Mongols would have overrun this country. It may bcr argued that they could not have found employment in this country. This Is not probable, for the reason that during the past twenty years, under our high tariff laws, there has been a constant demand for cheap labor and It Is a notorious fact that In many regions of Pennsylvania the Tery cheapest labor that could be found in Europe has been imported from year to year until now there Is •carcely an English speaking laborer In western Pennsylvania. The same employers who hired Huns and Slavs and Italians to take the place of American miners would hire Chinese if they could get them. SENATOR CHANDLEK, of New Hampshire. Interprets the re- •ult of the recent elections to mean the triumph of bimetallism. He thinks that if the United States puts on a .bold front England will have to back down and accept the double standard. la a letter just published, Chandler says: "As to the elections, they prove, with reasonable clearness, that If the Eepubllcan party permanently acquiesces in the existing gold standard and gives up the struggle for bimetallism, that party will be defeated In the congressional elections of 1898 and In the presidential election of 1900. The silver monometal- llsts will then taka possession of all branches of the national government and a free coinage bill, with silver made the tender for all debts, public and private, domestic and foreign, will pass both houses of congress and be signed by President Bryan." With a score of Republican senators .sharing the^^aws of Mr. Chandler, li It likely that Secre- Ury Gage will be able to secure leg- lelatlpQ that will bind this country to gold monometallism? The' gold con- •piraton will have to weld this coun- The reason tvhy so many -women suffer 'in silence from the multiple disorders con- 'nected with their sexual system is that they cannot bear to broach the subject to a man, even if he is a physician. Iso one can blame a modest, sensitive woman for 'tnii^reticence. It is unnecessary in these times, however, for a woman makes to all afflicted women a most g-enerous offer. Mrs. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass.. bids every woman who suffers to write to her and confide every symptom that annoys her. and she will give her advice without charge, and that advice is based upon the greatest experience ever possessed bv man or woman in this country, and extends over a period of twenty-three years, and thousands upon 'thousandsofcases. . AYhystifferinsileuceanylonger, my sister, when you can gethelpforthe asking? Don't fearto tell her everything. The case of Mrs. Colony, whose letter to Mrs. Pinkham we publish, is an illustration of the pood to be received from Mrs. Pinkham's advice; here is a woman who was sick for years and could get no relief—at last in despair she wrote to Mrs. Pinkham—received in return a prompt, sympathetic and interested reply. Note the result and go and do likewise. "I was troubled with such an aching in my back and hips, and I felt so tired all the time, and had for four years. For the last year it was all I could do to drag around. I would have such a ringing in my head by spells that it seemed as though I would grow crazy. I ached from my shoulders to my feet and was verv nervous, I was also troubled with a white discharge. I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., received a prompt reply and followed her advice, and now I have no backache and begin to feel as one ought; in fact, I never felt better in ten years than I do now. I thank God that I went doctoring with Mrs. Pinkham when I did, for if I had not I know I would have been in my g-rave." —MBS. NELUE E. COI.ONY, Nahma, Mich.

The American heart warms with pride and patriotism to our republican citizen soldiery, as described by Edge Kavanagh in Munsey's Magazine. There are now 120,000 of these trim militiamen in the whole country. They are •well equipped and uniformed, and many of them are exceedingly well -drilled, officers having been detailed from the regular army to train them. Every state in the Union has some camps of uation- 'al guardsmen, so has every territory ex- .cept Alaska and the Indian. Oklahoma has 43S citizen soldiers. The largest number is in New York, more than 13,000. Wyoming has the smallest number, 341. As to the requirements of these fine fellows, the main one appears to be more recognition from the national government, likewise from their own state governments. Mr. Kavanagh urges the necessity of a national headquarters at Washington as a common center for the state troous. The summer camp with steady drill for two weeks is a great feature in the improvement of the guard. Most of them wear the uniform of the United States army, but some city soldiers have special attire of their own, in some cases fearful and wonderful to behold. That of a city trooper of Philadelphia, as pictured in the magazine, is simply too gorgeous for description. It reminds one of a knight 'if the cvusades upon a patent medicine advertisement. It is the uniform of an old time colqnial dragoon of Philadelphia before the Revolution. As to the practical use of these citizen soldiers, it appears at present to consist chiefly in the suppression of labor strike riots. A Word For the Turk. From the time when General Lew Wallace was minister to the Turks the sultan has always liked Americans. Just before the departure of Minister A. W T . Terrell from Constantinople Abdul Ha- niid, whom Gladstone calls the great assassin, sent for the American and gave him an interview. It is published in The Century. It was on the subject of the Armenian massacres and represented the Turkish way of looking at the thing. During the Ottoman conquests in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries the Armenians, persecuted by Tartars and Persians, fled to the protection of the Turks, who permitted the refugees to settle in their dominions and grow rich, while the Ottomans were fighting and gaining glory in arms. The Armenians became merchants, manufacturers, contractors and officeholders and prospered by the arts of peace. The canny foreigners thus grew richer than the Turks themselves. This would have been forgiven only that the Armenians, growing arrogant and powerful, formed a conspiracy which had for its object nothing less than the overthrow of the Turkish empire itself. This the Turk never forgave. The sultan, however, insists that so far as butcheries and massacres are con cerned the Christians are steeped in gore every whit; as deeply as the Turk. John Sartain. To no one individual is art in America to- Indebted as to the late John Sartain, the Philadelphia engraver. His life and memory extended over nearly all the nineteenth century. He was 12 years old when King George III died, and he lived past the celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of the reign of Queen Victoria. He was the friend of Dickens when both were boys in London and Dickens •was pasting labels on bottles in a cellar at 25 cents a day. Sartain was the father of book and magazine engraving in America. He was drawn to art in his.earliest boyhood. When he was 12 years old, he began to earn his living. At 14 he was apprenticed to an engraver and then began the work which was to extend without interruption over a life which was spun out to 89 years. What a grand life it was, too, never a break in the man's splendid enthusiasm, energy or industry! He was trained as a line engraver, but when he came to America at the age of 22 he took up mezzotint work, being the first to Introduce it into America. Those who have seen the exquisitely soft, richly tinted engravings in Sartain's and Graham's magazines and The Eclectic of 50 years ago would find ic hard to admit that even the beautiful "half tone" pictures of today are superior. Those were the palmy days of steel engraving in the United' States:'"''^"* Those, too, who knew the old magazines made famous by Sartain's pictures half a century ago will be surprised that he who made them was until a few days ago yet living and working amid the scenes of nis"'ea'rTy and later successes in Philadelphia. He was full of life and activity till the very last. He was not only an engraver, but a painter in oils and water color as well, an architect of distinguished talent and an author and editor likewise-. It is melancholy to think that.this magnificent old artist would have no doubt been still living only that he was jerked'over upon his! face and injured by the sudden lurch of a trolley car last August. Three of Mr. Sartain's children are artists—the best known being Emily Sartain, the engraver and principal of the School of Design For Women in Philadelphia. Queen Victoria has so many relatives and so many descendants and so many of her family married around among the royal houses of Europe that somebody kia to her is nearly always dying and the British court is nearly always in mourning. In addition to this the queen herself has never left off her widow's weeds since the death of Prince Albert 36 years ago. A natural reaction from all this somberness is the fast set in English society, at the head of which aet ia his frisky highness Albert Edward, prince of Wales. This set is undoubtedly the, very fastest in all En- rope. The New York Four Hundred i« puritanical compared to it. . One good thing the national convention of mayors and municipal councilmen did at its Columbus meeting was to pass a resolution recommending city governments to give cordial aid in every way possible to the labor bureau's commission appointed to investigate municipal ownership of public franchises, such as street railways, water and gas works and electric lighting. There is about an even difference of honest opinion in the United States as to whether a city should or should not own and operate those industries with which the whole public is directly concerned. The national bureau of labor will gather facts on both sides of the question and report. It is certain there is a growing general belief thai either a city should own and operate its own public franchises or that, priavte companies owning and operating them should pay a city well for the privilege of controlling public enterprises which are so lucrative to them. It npw looks as if there would be a gold boom in the Minook river district. Eampart City, 250 miles below Dawson City, on the Yukon, is the center of the new goldfield. This district is in Alaska, on our own side of the line. It is also accessible at all times to St. Michael's, and therefore there will be no danger of starvation within its limits. BamparE City was the point at •which the last boats np the Yukon were obliged 60 stop because of low water this falL Tho fact that boats can ascend that far in the lowest stages of water will make Bampan • City'an important depot of supplies. The additional fact that it ia the center of a promising American gol<ln«ld -will add to its importance. Town lot* in Rampart C«y ought to tie nluable. .. ; THE PUBLIC MUST TOOT THE BILL. To What Extent JKnat the. People Bo Plnndered to Fulfill BurtiiM WitU the Money Operators?—Wh»t ArrnnK«ment Has Been IM»de to Reimburse Them? We have all heard of the man who gold the lion's skin while yet the lion lived, but who was killed in the hunting of him. In our day we have the man who bought the sheep with the promise of their wool at the first shearing. His name is Marcus Alonzo Hanna. He trafficked the favors of an administration for the money with which to create it. He assembled together the managers of the trusts, the wreckers and reorganizes of corporations and the operators in public and corporate debts and showed them how they could capture the government and place it in his hands as trustee for their benefit. It was a bold conception and was carried through with reckless magnificence. The sole demand he made was unlimited money as a corruption fund and the management of the trust thus formed. The conditions have been complied with, the desired result accomplished and Mr, Hanna is now executing the trust. Of course the treasury is to undergo a raking which will reimburse the contributors to the campaign fund and in addition thereto will to some extent satisfy their appetite for more money. The public money comes from taxes and loans. As the loans all have to be paid some time it will simplify matters to say that all public moneys come from taxation. The people pay from $400,000,000 to $500,000,000 of taxes every year, besides what the government runs them in debt. As the people, therefore, must pay Mark Hanna's political debts out of the treasury they are interested in knowing how much be has promised to pay the owners of shares in bis great political trust. President McKinley is also interested in the answer to this question. To what extent will the people have to be plundered to enable Hanna to fulfill his filthy, bargains with the trusts and money operators, and is there a limit beyond which the president will refuse to go at his bidding? It is possible that the president may yet fail Hanna in this business. It will not interfere with this good work to add to it a demand for an answer to the question, "How much has Hanna promised the trusts?" and also to learn to what extent the president is to guarantee his promises. Let the people know the full amount of the bills incurred by Mr. Hanna in the last presidential election. How many schemes has he underwritten and how many millions are in each? What arrangement has been made with Collis P. Huntingtou to surrender to him a part of the Central Pacific railroad indebtedness to the government? What, amount of bonds has Mr. Hanna promised the bond syndicate shall be issued for the retirement of the greenbacks, and on what terms are those bonds to be sold? Secretary Gage is quoted as favoring the issuance of $200, 000,000 of bonds for this purpose and of buying gold with the proceeds, which is to be paid out for greenbacks—the greenbacks so redeemed never to be reissued except in exchange for an equal amount of gold. The great Cuban bond steal is yet tc come. It will overtop anything that has yet been recorded in our annals. Spain has its Cuban war debt charged against Cuba. The total amount of it is over 1400,000,000. Cuba is to buy her partial freedom by the payment of this amount in bonds. Nobody knows how large an amount of these bonds Mark Hanna has agreed to have guaranteed by the United States. The total revenues of Cuba would not pay a low rate of interest on one-half the amount. What amount of these bonds will the president recommend congress to guarantee in the name of humanity and the American Jove of freedom and likewise for tlie enrichment of Mr. Hanna's political trust, whose members will doubtless have an option on the bonds to be so guaranteed? They will buy the bonds for 25 cents while they are Spanish and sell them for $1 when they become American. What other schemes Mr. Hanna has time .will develop. If the president is wise, he will immediately demand of Mr. Hanna a statement of what is to be required of him and a discharge from any asserted obligation to do more. Thomas Carlyle says in his history of the French revolution that the sheep which had patiently submitted to being shorn every year now commenced to take an interest in the shearing. Less than this cannot be expected even of the patient people of the United States. Mr. Hanna may yet find that before he has fully delivered the wool he bargained for with the syndicates in 1S9G there may be a murmuring among the sheep from which the wool is to be taken. Edmund Burke said of our fathers, "These colonists have all some smattering of the law and scent the approach of tyranny in the tainted breeze " If the descendants of these colonists do not revolt at a tyranny which squanders their substance to further enrich millionaires, they will prove themselves degenerate scions of worthy sires.—Cincinnati Enquirer. ^ ^^ Tax on Steel Rail*.
