Sheriff Homburg did not see his prisoners saw,buc their conduct gave rise to a suspicion that they had been sawing, and upon inspecting the jail he saw that several locks and ba.rs had been sawed. The inspection was made late last evening oy the sheriff and his deputy, Mr. Smith, after the prisoners had been locked la their cells. Toe; loops of the locks oa the doors of the cells occupied by Smith, the beer thief, and Chambers, who robbed a colored mm named Price, had been nearly severed, and it was further found that one of the bars on the lower fioor of the cage had been sawed off, as well as one of the bars on the wicdow in the southwest corner of the jail. Taese arrangements having been accomplished it would net have taken these prisoners over twenty minutes to have made their escape. It was also discovered that arrangements had been made to saw of the iocka on the do»rs of the cells occupied by Evans, the other beer thief, and Brown, the colored man who shot Green, also colored. Had it not been for the timely discovery, Sheriff Homburg would have had but one prisoner to feed this morning, Mclntosb, the murderer who is confined in a cell in the wo man's department. New locks were put on the cells and a guard patrolled the 'outer cor ridors of the jail during the night. Eloquent Memorial Address. Lieut. S. M. Landry, inspector Of U. S. life saving stations on the grea lakes, whose home is in this city, is a member of Port Huron (Mich.) lodge, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He delivered the principal address at the memorial services held by his lodge last Sunday. Referring to the address the Port Huron Dally Times says: "Lieut. S. M, Landry delivered an eloquent memorial ad dress. He called attention to the fact that no member of the Port Huron lodge has yet died and said that In America, with over 300 other lodges in the different cities of the United States, the local lodge joined in observing December 5th as memorial day. He told of the objects and aims of the order and believed the world was better for the existence of the same. Mr, Landry's ad dress was a splendid effort and The Times regrets that it is unable to publish it in full." Highly Complimented. i The Dally National Hotel Reporter in its Issue of yesterday compliments Manager Keller of the Barnett hotel for his sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner, as well as breakfast and supper, mentioning some ot the more unique and rare viands that were served, it adds: "This is an exceptionally fine production and much more praiseworthy than some which emanate from places ten times the size of Logansport." The paper also throws flowers upon Messrs Longwel' £ Cummings for the artistic bill of fare they furnished for the occasion saying 'that it is far more praise worthy to produce an original design of their own than to use a stock care from the factory of some down east engraver.

Official facsimile of Medal Awarded DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER Relating to the Ritlronds and Their Employes. Engineer John Manes, of the Pan" handle has recovered from a slight llness. The Panhandle company was seven weeks in making Lbe improvement in the north end. At least a dozen persons were hurt during the improvement of the Panhandle track on the north end. ElishaQ Candee, who has been em- jloyed as an engineer on the Wabasn 'or over thirty years, has been laid off by that company and pensioned tor the rest of his life. He will re- receive half of his regular monthly salary la the future. A committee representing tbe ilcket brokers of Indianapolis has secured the opinions cf more than 500 ot the leading business men of that city wbo are averse to any legislation on the oart of congress against that line of business. Reference is being again made to the fast time of Wabash freight trains Nos. 91 and 92, running between Toledo and St. Louis. They are the next thing to passenger trains and make almost as good time as the passenger service of some roads. Indiana ticket receivers state tbst the passenger business this" year is larger at the present time tban; ever before. December is generally a dul" month until the holidays, bui this year the travel Is almost as heavy as at any other season of the year. The Interstate commece commls slon ha? decided to extend for two years the period within which rail roads must comply with the act 01 congress requiring all railroads to be equipped with safety appliances for the protection of the employes and passengers. The big steam ..shovels that were used in cutting down the hill ai Rush and other points on the*Uhl- cago division of the Panhandle, have been brought to Logansport, along with the train of cars that was usec for feeding and lodging the men. The force of 250 employes will now oe reduced one-half. A. J. Prescott, road foreman of engines on the Chicago division of tbe Panhandle, stated to a Pharos reporter today that there is no truth in the published statement that he had posted notices at the various points along the road that the com paay desired to employ additional firemen and orakemen. In a circular recently Issued by the Wabash railway tbat company gives notice that it will join the Illinois Central and Alton in making cheap party rates from Chicago to points in the south. These three roads also have made the same rates as those in the Central Passenger committee for students returning to their homes for the holidays—a fare and one third for the round trip. Members of the railway employes organization have taken up the fight against ticket scalpers In earnest, and this makes the prospect of legislation for the suppression of this business extremely probable at the present session of congress.. The chiefs of the different railroad-organizations have held conferences with the managers of the various railroads throughout the country, and have been persuaded that the suppression of the ticket scalper would be most beneficial to the railroad employes.. They therefore intend to use their influence at this session of congress for the passing of the anti-scilper bill. Circuit Court New suits filed: By D. C. Justice for William P. Powell against Thos. Barrett, Daniel Barrett and Ellen Barrett, sr., to collect a note; demand, 1600. By Oromer and Swlgart for Mary C. Cromer against Daniel Lybrook and Harvey Lybrook, to collect a note; demand, 1400.

Taylor, for 1124.67. Preparing to Entertain. At a meeting of the Pottowattomle club last .night it was decided that the club would give a series of entertainments during the winter, consisting of musicsles, card parties, dances and lectures. There will also be "smokers" and banquets, at which questions of general local interest will be discussed. Each member of the club will be privileged to invite one gentleman friend to the "smokers."
