PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER WORLD'S FAW. CHICAGO, 1893 AN AIR LINE. A .New Road to Extend From Fort \Vajue to Kankakee, And Opening a Region of Unsurpassed Fertility—Of Possible Benefit to Logangport. A railroad project now occupying attention is one which has received favorable attention for me past year. Events of the last few days indicate that the scheme Is about to be accomplished. This is the extension or the Findlay, Fort Wayne & Western road from Its western terminal at Fort Wayne to Kankakee, Ills,, there to form a junction with the Illinois Central and thus gain an entrance Into Chicago. The distance between these two points is about 200 miles. The Astors built the Findlay road and one of the family is a leading stockholder and director ot the Illinois Central and thus has a double interest In the union of these two roads. The new road will avoid all the divergencies made by earlier roars to reach certain cities and will be known as the tangent line,passing through Rochester and Winamac. The maximum grade will ouly be fifteen feet to the mile, giving a great advantage as a freight route. The country to be traversed lies about Midway between the Indiana, Illinois and Iowa and tne Lake Erie and Western railroads. For about sixty rnlles east of the Illinois state line It passes through what was formerly known as the Kankakee marsh district, formerly the haunt of nothing out ducks and geese. Hundreds of thousands of acres of the marsh land have been drained during the past few years and It now promises to bo the most, valuable portion of Indiana, as it Is claimed to be the best sugar beet producing section in the United States. Tne deepening or the channel of the Kankakee river through that section will reclaim 500,000 acres more of waste land. The territory Is being rapidly settled and is without railroad facilities, excepting the lines forming a sort of boundary. The building of this road may De the means of furnishing Logansport with an- otLer route to Chicago. A spur track or electric road thirty miles in length would give the outlet, and should the much vaunted I. C. &L. road prove a filzzle, it is probable that th's link will In time be built. Logansport should Invade this territory, as the Young America region is clearly lost to us. Why not look to the new and rich fields u> the north west, and which is so rapidly developing? It promises to be the garden spot of Indiana and its trade will be worth acquiring. NATURAL GAS. Deplorable Waste In the Territory Where it Is Found. Loganspert Citizens Meet and Discuss the Situation—Resolutions Passed. Less than a hundred citizens of the city attended the meeting at the court house last night for the purpose ot inaugurating a movement to prevent a waste of natural gas. Of course there Is no waste of gas In Logansport. for her people sometimes find it a difficult matter to obtain enough for legitimate use. The movement is all right, however,for it has a tendency to discourage the unnecessary waste of gas by people residing In the gas fields. Terrence Me- Govern was made chairman of the meetiDg, W. S. Wright secretary and Peter Wallrath assistant secretary. On motion Peter Wallrath, Dr. M. A. Jordan, Dr. J. Z. Powell, Charles Ringleben and W. S, Wright were appointed a committee on resolutions, and they reported the following: Besolved, That, believing that our present law,if efficiently executed, is sufficient to. meet present emer- gencies.we would call on all executive officers to prosecute promptly all offenders that may be uselessly wasting gas, and that we will lend them all our moral aid and support in the performance of their official duty: that we are opposed to an extra session of the legislature. The chair appointed Peter Wallrath, Dr. M. A. Jordan and J. T. McNary to co-operate with similar committees from other cities and the gove r nor, attorney general and state gas inspector. Afterward at the suggestion of Mr. Wallrath, Mayor McKee's name was substituted for that of his own on the committee, and the meeting adjourned. School MODS* Burned. Yesterday morning while the Jefferson township school, District No. 1 was in session, the building took fire from a defective rlae, causing great excitement. The pupils saved all their books and other belongings. The building was burned to the ground. The loss will be about (800. THE QDESriOS OF CO-EDOCAT10S At Wabasli College Arouses Much Op. position. The question of co-education at WabdSb college is beirg discussed with unprecedented interest and tbe alumni are taking sides in a manner which leaves no doubt as to their feeling. Up to date about two huudred signatures have been secured to a petition asking the trustees of the institution to make the change and admit women. A large number have given their reasons for refusing to sign, and these letters are very radical. Rev. Dr. Putnam, of the First Presbyterian church of this city, declares his unalterable opposition to the change, It is a noticeable fact that the most hostile opposition comes from the alumni of f* quarter of a century ago, while those of recent years generally favor it. Most or those opposing the change however, state as their reason tnat Wabash college occupies a unique position, being the only Protestant college in Indiana educating young men exclusively. It is said that a majority of the trustees favor the admission of women, and will open the doors of the college to them just so soon as this can be done. The matter will probably absorb attention at the approaching December meeting of the trustees. DB. SPESCEB ISDIUTED For Sending a "Dun" on a Postal Card Through the Mails. The federal grand jury at Indianapolis has indicted Dr. Wm Spencer, of Montlcello, on the charge of sending a "dun" on a postal card through the mills to William T~ Burrnett, A. C. Harris appeared for Spencer, Tuesday morning, and asked that he be allowed to argue the meaning of the statute forbidding the use of postal cards for certain purposes. The postal card reads: Do you invite me to bring suit against you for 110,50 due June IT, ? If so just sib right still aad see me get the money with costs." Judge Baker said his impression is that the card was not a violation of j the law, but that he should be glad [ to have the case argued next week. He has never passed on a similar case. His decision in the matter will be of general interest. A PROTEST Against Bills Antagonistic to Ticket Brokers. Typographical unions throughout the country are taking a firm stand by the passage of strong resolutions against the bills which have been introduced In the house and senate antagonistic to ticket brokers. It Is argued In the resolutions that the passage of any such bills will serve to destroy competloin and will result in increased railroad fares, and that it is inimical to the interests of the poor man, Logansport printers are not in favor ot this kind of legislation. Sister organizations are urged to adopt similar resolutions and send copies to members of the house and senate. Exciting Runaway. Yesterday afternoon at 2:30 the delivery horse of Rehwald Bro's. took fright at a passing train ou Third street and ran north on Third. The horse was driven by C. W. Jackson, who was thrown out in front of Dunn Bros 1 , grocery store, receiving a few bruises. The horse continuing his course dashed into the rig of Morgan & Cummings, at the corner of Broadway and Third, and damaging that vehicle considerab ly. The Singer sewing machine agency's rig was also damaged to some extent. The runaway horse was badly injured on his right hip. Annual Was Rates.
