Entered at the Loganeport, Ind.,poetoffice as MOODO clEBP mail matter, ae provided by law. THE Wabash railway has all at once become a very Important through line. So dry was the earth's surface that much of the recent rain was absorbed. The rivulets were dry again within a few hours after the rain showers passed. GOVERNOR BUSHNELL declares that he will take no part ic, the attempt to defeat the re-election of Mark Hanna to the senate. He say?, however, that If the legislature deems it "unwise" to return Hanna to the senate, he will accept the honor if his friends In the legislature desire him to do so. Senator Foraker has embittered Banna's friends by declaring that the campaign Is over wlth.hlm and that Haana must make his fight for re-election without his aid. Mn. DINGLEY gives the new tariff law which bears his name all the credit for whatever improvement there is in business conditions. Mr. Dlngley may be right, but It Is the general opinion that had the United States not produced a good wheat crop and the Old World a poor one, there would have been no improvement whatever in buiiness. This ynar's fruitfulness, coupled with the extraordinary demand for American farm products, has improved business conditions. The remits would have been the same had there been no tariff legislation. The Dlngley tariff law has benefited nobody but the «ugar trust and a few other combinations, ai restraint of trade. Every intelligent voter knows this to be true. HON. E. E. PRESTON, director of the mint, states that in his opinion the supply or gold is now Increasing faster than is the commercial demand for gold, and therefore that under the gold basis prices are likely to increase rather than decrease. Such a statement verifies the opinion of men who hold that prices vary according as the quantity of redemption money Increases or decreases. A great crime was committed when, by striking silver from the list of metals in which obligations were contracted to be redeemed, the purchasing power of the more favored metal was doubled. And by doubling the purchasing power of money, the prices of products must eventually decline one-half, and with the decline in the price of products must eventually come a corresponding cut In wages. There is no probability that the increased production of gold will have any perceptible effect in reducing its purchasing power as long as the nations of the world are clamoring for the metal with which to redeem their debts. Senator Carter's Yiewa. Senator Carter of Montana shares the views of Senator Chandler on the money question. Mr. Carter is a bi- metalllst and supported McKinley in the hope that the restoration of sti- ver might be accomplished through international agreement. Mr. Carter is very positive that nothing will be done in the way of currency reform which contemplates the retirement of the greenbacks or the Issue of bonds. "I realize," he says, "that the confidence of the country In the present banking laws has been shaken to some extent, and tbst the lack of perfect confidence is an Impediment to business, but It can be stated emphatically that no alleged reform can succeed in con Kress which takes It for granted that the efforts to secure international bl metallism have come to a conclusion •which proposes to contract' the cur rency or provides for the issue of bonds." He predicts that unless Internationa Mmetallism becomes a reality at the approaching session of congress there •will be an absolute alignment at the next election between the gold and silver men of the country, and that the next house representatives wll be elected on that issue alone. "Anr for that test," he says, "the gold standard men will not be well pro pared." The advocates of the single gold standard concede that unless thej can secure the passage of a la,w at the coming session of congress that bind this country to the gold standard they must prepare to meet the issue In the open. At the last election the advocates of th* tingle gold standard sought to hoodwink the people by pretending to favor inter national bimetallism. Men like Sen ator Oartei were induced to help Vhi gold conspirators by the prom law set forth to restore sll A sickly, half-dead-and-alive v. - oman, especially when she is the mother of a family, is a damper to all joyousness in the home. 1 sometimes marvel at the patience of some husbands. If a woman finds that her energies are flagging and that everything tires her, her sleep disturbed by horrible dreams, and that she often wakes suddenly in the night with a feeling of suffocation and alarm, she must at once regain her strength. It matters not where she lives, she can write a letter. Mrs. Pinkham, if Lynn, Mass., will reply promptly and without charge. The following- shows the power of Lydia "E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, accom- >anied with a letter of advice: "Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—I have suffered for over two years with falling, enlargement and nlceration of the womb, and this spring, being in such a •weakened condition, caused me to now 'or nearly six months.

Now they find that the conspira- ors want to bind this country to the Ingle gold standard by issuing bonds he principal and Interest of which hall be made payable in gold. If ongress fails to du their bidding then he fight in the next campaign will be between the friends of bimetallism in one side and the advocates of gold monometallism on the other side. The Democratic party will undoubtedly declare for the free coinage of both gold and silver while tbeEepub- icans will be forced to declare for gold monometallism. The great bat- le on the money question is yet to .ome. The advantages thus far obtained by the gold standard advocates have been secured oy stealth _iod deception. The next battle will be an open one and the money power of the world will back the gold con- iplrators who for the first time will ight in the open field. The United States board of genera' appraisers has been wrestling with the clause in the tariff law which exempt* 'works of art" from duty on entering this country. The particular point of discussion was to tell what is a work of art. That no mau can do. The hoard therefore looked at the question from tho other side and defined what a work of art is not. Under the final ruling no copy of an art production, however beautiful and finely finished it may be, is a work of art in the meaning of the law. It is merely a copy of such. Again, no design prepared by an artist in this country and sent abroad to be wrought out by artisans in a marble, bronze, wood or other kind of factory across the water is a work of art. The work when it cotaoa homo on a steamer and passes the custom house is merely a mechanical production, corning directly into competition with home industries. The availability of magnetism as a power in industrial operations is strikingly illustrated at the British arsenal, Woolwich. Great magnets are used to lift shells and armor plates. Silently, powerfully the mysterious servant grapples with its invisible fingers the huge plates and holds them till they are swung into place. By regulating the force of the charging current it is even possible to lift one plate or many, as may be desired. "Will you sell me some fast cruisers quick, with quick firing guns to scare the United States? says Spain to a canny British shipbuilder. "You dons hon or," replies the British builder. "Nothing would give ns greater pleasure than to sell you. cruisers to whip our brother of the United States; terms, spot cash, please." But Spain has not the cash and cannot get it. The deal falls through. It is declared to be a fact that the Thompsons, British shipbuilders, are holding back four torpedo boat destroyers -which they finished a year ago because Spain cannot pay cash for the vessels and the firm •will not trust her for the money. Thus low^ has this onoe proud nation fallen, and it aerTM her right. me men an'a sat up, nan awaxe ana trembling with terror. Holytrack and Ireland were dragged from their beds, ropes were fastened about their necks and they weredragged out on the grounds after being told to prepare for death. The men were then dragged to a huge beef windlass which had been erected to suspend the car- cassc-3 of slaughtered beeves and strung up on a cross-beam. Coudo: was the first man to be hanged. It is reported that he was asked before he was hanged whether Black Hawk and Defender had also been concerned in the murder for which he was about to be hanged. He answered that they had been. The rope which had been fastened about his neck was then thrown over the crossbeam and he was raised off the ground and suspended in the air. Holytrack and Ireland were so nearly unconscious from the effects of the dragging that they did not realize what was about to happen when the ropes about their necks were tossed over the same beam. They were unable to .nand and were slowly raised from the ground on which they lay until their bodies swung into the air and dangled from the windlass with that of Coudot. The mob then dispersed and rode awayi Kifflit Strike Lenders Acqnitted.
