Entered at the Logangport, Ind.,po»tofflce an iecono clas* mull matter, aa provided by law WHEAT touched toe dullur mark again in the Chicago marfcet yester day. The export demand continue! strong. BOB INGEKSOLL delivered his new lecture. "What good has the church done for humanity," at Chicago Thanksgiving night. Some expected t,hat he would recant aod yield to tbe teachings of Christianity, but he de- claied that tbe church bad bsen a detriment to humanity. THE sum of $18 194,tmT26 realized from the proceeds of the sale of the Union Pacific railroad has been turned Into tbe treasury and will be used to lessen the deficit occasioned by the failure of the Dlngley bill to provide enough revenue to meet ex penses. In January six million djllars more will be pair! In. THE iLdianapulis Sentinel holds that "the "honest money" doctrine Is to donate the earth to bondholders and money kings and reserve to the people the hope of a blessed immortality in another world." In the other world coin bonds will be paid in coin according totLe terms •f the contract. If gold Is as scarce orer there as It IB here the bondhold- en will have to accept silver. If a conspiracy is formed over there to destroy one kind of metallic money to enhance tbe value of another, the oonsoirators will be banished into that place where the fire Is not quenched. EVERY condition Is favorable to prosperity. The foreign demand lor our surplus food products was never greater In the history of the country and It is what we sell abroad that adds to the nation's wealth. The balance of trade with foreign countries will be abnormally large this year. The good thing about this is that the money realized from our surplus food products will find its way to the producers who can pay their debts and provide necessities which they do not produce. The great crops have made a great business for the railroads and the great transportation lines have been materially benefited. The American farmers are wholly unprotected and it is under such conditions as the present that they prosper. The farmers can not form trusts to restrict production. They must sell their products at prices fixed by the natural laws of supply and demand. It Is true that some kinds of farm products now bring prices but little if any above tbe cost of production. But on account of the great demand for breadstufls corn and meat products are also likely t,o advance in price. Agriculture is the chief industry of this country, and when the farmers obtain prices that mean profitable returns for their labor other lines of industry must in time be favorably effected. When the purchasing power of abushel of wheat is doubled, its debt paying power is doubled. At the present time wheat is more valuable than gold, silver or precious stones. Base Fears. McKlnley's pastor at Washington preached a sensational sermon on Thanksgiving day. He did not repeat Burchard's famous alliteration but he declared that the perils confronting this nation were rum, socialism and Jesuitism. The reverend gentleman was either unduly excited or seeking notoriety. The perils that he fears are not at all dangerous. Year by year the people of this country become more temperate in the use of intoxicants. Socialism will never become strong In this country unless the government permits the sources of production to pass under the control of a few men. Jesuitism is no stronger now la proportion to ths population than in the early days of the Republic. If it «haU grow it will be because of the degeneracy of the orthodox church in pandering to wealth. To owr view the peril of the Republic lies in the rapid concentration of wealth. At the present rate of concentration, the close ot the next century will find the wealth of this country concentrated into a very few hands. If the churches would • lend their aid to prevent the absorb- tion of wealth they would be doing the cause cf humanity great good. The vice chancellor of DePauw university, in a sermon delivered a few Sundays ago in this city, •aid there was something wrong in conditions when the very rich built palace* in which to keep their hor*ea while thousands of human being* were f orcod by necessity to live in hovels. The sugar trait li meting from the American people today from»20,000,000trjf50,- 000,000 per year of illegitimate profits, but do we hear a wt.rri of criticism from tbe American pulpit Every leading divine In the country espoused the cause of the gold conspirators list year. Why? Because the per- rninent establishment of the g f "ld standard will further enrich tbe pj>- seesors of fabulous Incomes. The producing Millions, the creators of all wealth, are forgotten in tbe wad rush to increase the purchasing power of money. Every tru->t farmed to rob consumers Is a crime against humanity, and yet we hear no protest from those in the pulpit who fear rum, socialism and Jesuitism. Women Hull ro Do the Work. Hawerstown, InrL, Nov. 27.—Several ytars ajro the town cemetery, which occupies a beautiful «ite, was overgrown with weeds and briars. Responsibility for its iU'i,'lt":-ied condition was shifted from one to another; the town council and the lot-owntre each trying to saddle upon the other the !.>urd. n of improvement. Finally some of the fere- most women of this place took the matter in hand. Under thc-ir direction the cemetery has been transformed into a beautiful place. The past year they purchased a large addition, platted it and sold the lots, and they now have a surplus of money in the treasury. KflVet nf a Mat<:h and Turpentine, Jeffersonvillc, fnd., Nov. 27.—Jarvi? Benjamin, of Ciarksville, injured his hand, and he wrapped It up in a cloth saturated with turpentine.

Chicago, Nov. 27.—Representatives of a number of leading western colleges met here yesterday and it was decided to amend the athletic rules in several particulars.

Nov. £7.—Is the Big Four railroad about to make an attempt- to blot Danville off the map? This question is agitating the people of this city and there is no end to the plots that are being hatched to worry the railroad. The Big Pour has had a monopoly of freig-ht ar.d passenger traffic here for years. .NTo tov.'n of its size has had better passenger service. Four trains run each way every day and the accommodations have been perfect. Having a monopoly the road charg-ed 25 cents per 100 for freight from Indianapolis, twenty miles distant. Some time ago a man set up in the freight hauling industry in competition with the road. He cut the rate from 25 to 15 cents per 100, and so prospered that he has now four wagons and all he can do. Planning to Worry the Rial-way. To meet the cut the road reduced its rate to 15 cents, but the merchants preferred the wagon route, as it saves them drayage at both ends of the line. Then the road restored its rate to 25 cents. Xow the citizens say that the Big Four will run all its trains straight through the town. The change of time is to go into efllect Sunday. Officials of the road deny that its trains will pass Danville by. All the citizens seem to think the change will, be sweeping- and everybody is awaiting the result. Should the road attempt to pass Danville by there will follow one of the prettiest fights on a. railroad ever seen in this country. All sorts of -plans to .worry the road are discussed, but no organized action will be taken until the railroad makes the first attack.

Sheriff May Have Made a Mistake That Will Be FutaL Princeton, Ind., Nov. 27.—Nineteen prisoners confined in the Gibson county jail declared themselves in open revolt against Sheriff Murphy yesterday. For several days ugly threats had been made by the prisoners, and the sheriff was warned. Yesterday morning: the men declared they would have more food or kill the sheriff. A posse of deputies was placed outside the jail while Sheriff Murphy entered alone. As soon as he closed the door all the prisoners, headed by John Boger, a notorious criminal, rushed upon him and \vpre about to carry out their threats when the posse rescued the sheriff. A fierce fight then occurred between Boger and ilurphy. and Boger was Ijeaten almost into insensibility and then thrown into a cell. V\"hen the prisoners' saw their leader worsted they were suppressed without further trouble. Bog'er says he will kill Murphy. The sheriff had a splendid opportunity when the first rush was made on him to have made Boger's threat impossible. OTMAWKD THK MTKQ-OLYCERINE. Aud It in Turn "Thawed" a Hole ill the Ground Where the House Was. Chesterfield, Ind., Nov. 27.—An explosion of nitro-glycerine occurred one- half mile west of this city at 3:10 o'clock Thursday night. Sixty quarts of nitro-glycerine were hauled there for the purpose of shooting- a gas well. The explosive was placed in a. large zinc tub located at the end of a steam exhaust pipe for the purpose of thawing- out the mixture. It is the theory that the tub became overheated, causing an explosion with disastrous results. A hole ten feet long ar.d several in depth was torn in the earth. The engine was blown to pieces. Drillers Kaney and McGuire had a remarkable escape. They were standing within thirty feet of the scene ot" the accident and were hurled twenty feet by the force of the explosion, but with the exception of a few bruises they escaped unhurt. Persons a mile away w*re lifted from their feet by the concussion and the jar was felt for ten miles. Fire followed the explosion, but the flames were quickly extinguished. HARBISON'S RAILWAY.
