MACK, The Celebrated Irish Comedians, at Dolan's Opera Bonse Tonight. Tbe celebrated stars, Murray & Mack, wno for years have been the recognized leaders ot extravagant Irish farce comedy, will pay us another visit tonight at Dolan's, when they will be seen In their new piny, "Finnegan's Courtship," by long odds the very best of the several plays they have already given us. It is plausible, has a defined plot, is chuck full of roaring comedy situations, and could be played without; a single apecialty: but Murray & Mack wouldn't oe let 02 by their cltentelle without some of their individual capers, and so this season are keeping up their end of the job with bright, original burlesques, and almost every member of the company will contribute an original idea of some kind. Many of the specialties occur In the second act, which is laid atCnney Island, that place as kaleidoscopic with human events and happenings as the box of our childhood days was full of wonders. From a farce comedy standpoint, the management has made the performance unusually attractive; the management has made it a point also to bring special scenery, properties, etc. To make a long story short, Murray & Mack carry everything but the audience.

Marlon Chronicle: The Marion lodge of Elks, which was suspended by Grand Exalted Ruler Detweiier for Irregularities In the initiation of Robert Fitzsimmons, has not yet been reinstated.

It would be necessary, the grand exalted ruler said, to get the consent of the board of trustees of the grand lodge, but it was thought this might be done by wire, and Mr. Detweiier thought the charter might be restored before he left town. Tne grand exalted ruler left the city, and nothing has been heard on tue subject since. Through indirect sources it is learned that the question of the restoration of the charter has been left to a vote of all the lodges of the order. Postofflce Policy. The postofflce department announces thai; its policy in regard to missing-word and missing-latter contests is unchanged. Judge Tyner, attorney for the department, explains that schemes in which the element of chance is prominent, will be put down with a stern hand. To be sure, the judge says, that legitimate contests will not be Interfered with, but nine out of every ten missing- letter games are rank, deliberate swindles Involved, ambiguous language is used for the purpose of confusing the public and leaving a loop hole out of which the bunco steerers can crawl when they are called upon to make good their dazzling promises.

In the application of the city of Peru for an order that the Logansport and Wabash Valley Gas company be required to pay into court each month the excess of receipts for gas above the rates established by the ordinance, passed by the common council in September, 1887, or for the appointment of a receiver to hold sucb. excess pending litigation between the city and gas company, Judge Baker, of the United States circuit court at Indianapolis, Saturday, after hearing argument, refmed to make such order or to appoint a receiver as prayed for.
