The first Sunday in December of each year has been set apart by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks as a day upon which to commemorate the memory of Its eternally absent brothers. Tne services o' the local lodge have been the occasion of general Interest. Tbe exercises he!d yesterday afternoon in the handsome and Kpaclous quarters of the lodge, in the Kreuzberger building, were on a somewhat more elaborate scale than ever berore, and the audience was variously estimated at 1mm 800 to 1,000 people. Stelnhart's full orchestra rendered "Stabet Mater," by Bossiai. Joseph Rembusch, the talented baritone, sang "Calvary." The opening exercises of the Lodge of Sorrow then followed, Exalted Ruler McSiieehy prefacing the ritualistic work with a brief but impressive address concerning "E!ks Memorial Day." Then after a prayer by Re?. D. P. Puctiam, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, the program was carried out in the following order: Vocal selection "Abide With Me," Macy, Chimes Quartette; Eulogy, "Our Departed Brothers," G. W.

Heenan, Edwin Stuart and M. D. Fansler. The address of Rev. J. A. Me- alone, who Is secretary of Anderson odge of Elks, was an impressive and iloquent portrayal of the objects of tbe order. A strong paint made by Rev, McQloae was that while the Order of Elks required Its members to acknowledge the existence of the Supreme Being, their spiritual welfare was left to the churches, and their moral standing to themselves. All In all it was a grand service, and the audience was more deeply Impressed than ever with the virtues of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.

Major CalhDun, the author of the new serial story beginning In this issue of the Pharos, is well-known to hundreds of thousands of readers as a writer of high-class romantic adventure. "The Weldon Estate" is one of his happiest eflorts. Attorney J. C. Newer was called upon recently by a farmer living south of town, and paid an account of 17 that had beenadue eleven years or more. Mr. Newer» had forgotten about the bill, as it was in a book of accounts that was burned at Deer Creek some eleven years ago, when his business place was destroyed. Mr. 0. F. Avery, state deputy of the Modern Woodmen of the World, who has been here on lodge business for some time, left yesterday for hia home in Pontiac, 111., being called there to attend aa extra session of the Illinois legislature.

Moore, traveling agent for Krels Bros', manufacturing company, has skipped out and left the concern in the lurch for a considerable amount. His weakness was for giddy women and fast living. South Bend was the last scene of his misdoings. At that place he run a board bill of $21.75. He left his samples there and disappeared,probably going to his old home at Boston, Mass. Moore was rather well known here, as for a time he held the position of clerk at the Johnston hotel. CREATION OF MONEY. Nervous Weak Tired. Thousand!; are in this condition. They are despondent and gloomy, cannot Bleep, have no appetite, no energy, no ambition. Hood'sSarsaparilla soon brings help to such people. It gives them pure, rich blood, cures nervousness, creates an appetite, tones and strengthens the stomach and imparts new life and increased vigor to all the organs of the body. Sarsaparilla Is the One True Blood Purifier. All druggists. $1. Purely » Government Function and tb* Prerogative of the People. Paper money costs nothing but the printing of ic and the interest on the reserve maintained for its redemption. We habitually call it paper money because it is a substitute for and a representative of money. It innsc be obvious to every one that the origiuaror of a circulating note for §1 profits just that $1, less the cost of printing it and the' cost of the reserve for its redemption, when ic is put in (.'ircnJation. We maintain that the creation of money, whether of gold or silver or of paper, is purely a government function. It is one of the highest acts of sovereignty. In a monarchy it is the prerogative of the crown. In a republic it is the prerogative of the sovereign people. We have the high authority of Mr. John C. Bullitt, and it is the concurrent opinion of financiers generally, that a thousand millions of paper money is required in the business o:f this country. If printing a single paper dollar and putting it in circulation is worth a dollar to whoever can make it circulate as a dollar, the same is true of a thousand million dollars. The sole question in this connection is whether tl people of the United. States, acting tnrongh their government, shall create national wealth to the extent of the volume of paper money which can be kept permanently in circulation or whether this immense benefit shall be given away to individuals forming banking corporations authorized by law, their notes being insured circulation as money by the government's guarantee for their redemption. The mere statement of the case seems to us an invincible argument in its snpport. We maintain that, no matter how completely the government may be protected in ics guarantee of the redemption of bank notes, the government does actually lose, under any system of bank issues, an amount equal to the bank notes in circulation, less the cost of the reserve for their redemption. As to the redemption fund, its maintenance, either by the government or by the banks, costs either of them whatever interest it could earn if not thun obliged to remain idle. As to the drain upon gold, which Mr. Cleveland calls "the endless chain." the bank note system has no advantage over the government system, unless the bank paper is to be irredeemable. — Cincinnati Enquirer. _ '.• •'.;.£;;'v,: • —— - v^.y-'"' • CURRENCY TINKERS. «-*• Unselfish Reformers Whose Labors Are Not Appreciated. Protests are heard that the self constituted currency commission is not being considered seriously enough. "There is no reason," complains one MoHanna minstrel, "why anybody should treat the work of the commission contemptuously. '' Of course not. The commission is neither oflicially employed nor remunerated. Its members have unselfishly taken upon themselves the gigantic task of reforming the currency. The task has proved too great for the people and the nation. Why should anybody sneer when a mere handful of bold financiers undertakes to accomplish the feat in a twinkling? Unfortunately there are a lot of low bred wretches who will laugh at anything. The romantic spectacle of a few money brokers taking upon themselves the duty of fixing up our financial system as they think it should be moves a certain sort of men only to jeers, lliese hooting hoodlums will not reform the currency themselves to suit the brokers nor allow the brokers to do it. The commission, as everybody knows, is nonpartisan. It is composed of gold standard Republicans and gold standard ex-Democrats. Taken all together, they are as cultured a set of men as conld be found any night in evening dress at Delmonico's or the Waldorf. Their taste in wines is perfect; their cultured palates distinguish readily between 50 cent straight cigars and those which retail at $5 a dozen. They are all masters of the art of dining. Why should such men not be taken seriously? Have their tormentors any of these accomplishments? No wonder the patriotic tinkers are exasperated. Their efforts to find the true remedy for the diseased financial system have only resulted in the discovery of some 50 methods, all delightfully impracticable, admirably disastrous and unfortunately hopeless. The commission cannot affect to be Ignorant of the scandalous hilarity which its flonnderings occasion. But the worm will turn. If the hooting multitude does not take care, its rudeness will anger the refined commissioners into saying something real mean, even if they do not abandon reform and leave the currency to its miserable fate. —Kansas City Times.

The People I/ook to C The Republican statesmen -who are *onverging on Washington for winter qnarters express the opinion that congress vrili do nothing in particular. It will not conch Cuba or the currency or any other subject labeled "dangerous." There is one dangerous subject—dan- gerons for Hanna, Platt, Quay and the other leaders of the Bepnblicau party—• which congress cannot ignore if the Democrats do their duty. The suppression of the trusts is a matter that cannot be shelved if a determined and energetic minority insists that it shall be considered. The people have seen congress pass a tariff bill that intercepted 1X5,000,000 on its way from the pockets of the taxpayers to the public treasury and diverted it to the vaults of the Sugar trust They have seen a score ol other trusts allowed to write their ached- nles into that same bilL They look to that congress now to do something for the regulation of th« combinations it often favored.—$£ew York Jour- AMUSEMENTS.
