[Entered as second-claw matter at the Logann- portront Office, February 8. SATURDAY MORNING. MARCH SO EVEN President Cleveland's Englleh friends have become disgusted with his recent actions. The London Economist of February 23 condemns Mr. Cleveland's deal with the New York iyndicate in round terms. It sayfi: "Whoo Mr. Goechen carried out hie conversion scheme the entire cost in commlbslon 10 agents, other than the Banks of England and Ireland, incurred in converting £558,000,000 of 3 per cents, was £234,000. And now we ece the United States compelled to allow intermediaries to earn a profit Of over £1,000,000 on a loan of £13,000,000. Of course, the laborer la worthy of his hire,and no one would dream of blaming the syndicate for making the beet possible terms for themselves. But if the monetary affairs of tho States had been managed with ordinary prudence their services would not have been needed." Thd London Economist also takes tho view, which was slmulUneoi-sly expressed in the Social Economist lor March, that the refusal of Congress to insert the word "gold" in place of the word ' 'coin" in the bonds sold to the syndicate together by the payment of tho government to the bondholders of £107,800 per annum, or for thirty years to £3,236.000, for the express privilege of paying in coin rather than In gold, amounts to a'clear and honorable agreement by the bondholders to accept payment lu silver. The London Economist says: "Tho fact that thoy have agreed, in consideration of a higher rnio of interest, to.accept payment in silver, and have thus,put themselves on a different footing from the other creditors of the government, Is a fact that it would be foolish for those who have subscribed to tho new issue to ignore," THE Toledo Blade thus puts It in a nutabell: Tho farmers of the United States should put on their thinking caps and study the following statistics: During tho seven months ending with January our exports of broadstuffe were valued at $66,809,. 63d, a decrease of $-15,000,000. The value of our exports of wheat declined from $43,867,768 to $26,997,136; of our corn, from $18,083,867 to $5 216,591, and of our wheat flour, from $43, 959,200 to $31,878,933. This is the way the Democracy is carrying' out its promise to obtain "the markets of the world" forjour farmers. THE Spanish army appears to be In a demoralized condition and to have lost the good will of tbe people. A spacial from Madrid says: "Strong public sentiment is felt still on account of the officers' riots. Officers aro hissed, frequently when ihoy enter cafes or music halls. The whole affair has had a bad influence on the ranks. Tho non commissioned officers and privates are returning late from their furloughs, and are Inclined to be defiant THE news comes from London that all the property in Italy of the Eng- lish.novelist "Oulda"ba9 baen sold to pay her debts and sho is almost penniless. "Ouida." who is .now an old woman, must havo made a fortune from tbe large sales of her novels, many of which while of a sensational and demoralizing character have been widely read. She has allowed her money, however, to slip away from her.

S. Gov*t Report ENCAMPMENT CLOSES. MODEEN EPISTLES, Difference Between Letter Writing Past and Present, Conciienm mnd Br«Tlty Now tho VPbereai In Tlm«« Gome r. y P«o- pl« Wrote Mor« for Poiterlty. The letter writing of to-day bears little or no resemblance to letter writing of other clays, and Mr. Andrew Lang in an interesting paper in the Illustrated 'London News discourses on the letter writers of the past, and says that "the lack of good letters in modern life" is not so much from the "lack of writers" as from the "lack of readers," aud a long- letter, say from Australia, is perhaps never read at all, and that wo have become so frivolous "a man as far away as Samoa will write a note us if to a friend in the next street," The paco at which we live, the rush and hurry of each day, aro answerable in a measure for this change in our style of correspondence; but, above all, is it not the result, of the flood of journalism which sweeps all before it? The letter writers of the past wrote for posterity, it is true, but also to keep th.«ir friends in touch with the topics of the day, political and social, says London Queen. Onr newspapers do this for us to the fullest extent, and only the most private matters remain for the letter writer to record, matters of so private a. nature that were such letters given to posterity a discreet editor would at once erase these confidences from his MS. The letter writer of today, unlike his predecessor, does not confide his experiences—whatever form they may have taken—to his friend and correspondent; and if ho has anything- worth saying- on any particular subjeet he rushes into print forthwith, into the paR-es of one or other of the many magazines, or into the daily or weekly newspapers. Women are not one whit behind men in this respect, and newspaper and magazine readers aro the recipients of their confidences, and what they have seen and done becomes at once public property. The admirable diction, the vig-orous English, the polished periods, tho telling- epigrams in tho careful and well- thought-out essays of the day are not to be found as heretofore in private correspondence, but in magazine and journalistic literature. Mr. Lang remarks that the "fear or hope" of having their letters published "inspired many of the old eminent hands" to do their best for fame and posterity, us well as for their correspondents. Miss Austen "kept her wit for the world'," and gave "flat gossip" to the "worthy, dull ladies" with whom she corresponded. Of "literary letters none excel Sbelly's." Scott's are simply "natural, business-liko and unpretentious;" Thackeray, "though he lived in our railway clays," and "should have written few letters," yet for "tone, style, wit and loving kindness" his aro among the best in the world. The points in the notes of the day— which havo superseded letters—are conciseness and brevity, to write without preamble of any kind and to go to the root of the matter at once. Formerly, if anything in the way of a request was made, a suggestion as regards a plan to do something, or any one of tho thousand social trifles that fill up leisure nnd life, it required a lead of some lines to introduce it, and oftencr than not • an apology also. But now almost telegraphic conciseness is the mode adopted, and aught else would read out of date; in truth, telegrams have not a little to do in forming the present form of letter writing, and have taupht economy in the use of words. It may bo said that the letters of to-day are the direct antithesis o.f those of yore. Then too many subjects could not be broached and commented upon; now the reverse is the rule, and to keep to one subject only, and that in the fewest words, is -what society affects, hence the brief notes we all receive and write; yet, brief as they are, a clever man or a talented woman conveys in a sentence or two the gist of the whole matter,'epigrammatical in neatness and subtly humorous—a compensation small in its way, perhaps, for the lengthy epistles of "the past, but all this workaday world has time either to write or to read. Oyst«r» In London. "When I g-o back to London and tell my club friends that in Washington I can g-et half a dozen of tho finest oysters ia the world on the half shell for twenty-five cents they will hardly be- bcve roe," said an Englishman to a Washington Post, reporter. "We pay one dollar a dozen there for very tiny specimens of the juicy bivalve, and thev don't compare in lusciousness with the" Washington oyster. This is my first trip and it seems to me that I have done nothing but cultivate my epicurean faculties; and I'll make an honest confession that the expectation of getting acquainted with some of the toothsome American dishes had a good- deal to do with bringing me over. Welli I've got on familiar terms with yonr terrapin and canvas back duck and must say that their fame has not been exaggerated. X6 wonder that our European gourmets are willing to cross the Atlantic to indulge in them, for their like is not to be found in any other land." If is very wasteful to feed' hay to stock otherwise than in.racks. The Wlud-Up of a SMeceufol MeetlPC —Officers F.le«ttd. MONCIE, Ind., March 29—The sixteenth annual encampment of the G. A. B. Of Indiana came to an ending last night. Following the election of Judge Shlvelj, of Wabash, a» department commander, Robert I. Patterson, of Muncle was elected senior vice- commander; J. W. Tingle of Rich, mond. junior vice-commander; Dr.J. W. Jonee, of Seymour, medical director and the Rev. D. R. Lucas, of Indi- anapolie, department chaplain. The new council of administration includes Jasper E. Lewia, of South Bend; A. R Walter, of Fort Wayne; Ed G. Buaz, of Indianapolis; George H Koch, of New Albany, sni B. B. Campbell of Anderson. Commander elect Shively re-appointed R. M. Smock of Indianapolis, assistant adjutant~geoernl, and 0. R. Weaver same city, assistant quartermaster-general. A resolution was approved affirm. log the purpose of the encampment to build ten cottages on the Soldiers' Home grounda at Lafayette, using 1 as much of the $5,000 appropriated at the Fort Wayne meeting- of the encampment as might be necessary." A resolution regarded as significant was one thanking the Indiana Legion for its patriotic course during the Debs insurrection. The memorial of the the committee representing the Indianapolis posts, protesting Against the history of the war as taught in the public schools, wal approved, and a committee was appointed to lay tbe matter before the school book board. A vote of thanks was extended to the Indiana Legislature because of the appropriation to erect monuments to the Indiana dead on tho Chickamauga battl-efiuld, and for setting apart a room in the State Capitol for the use of the G. A. R. The following relative to pensions, presented by Senator HaggarJ, was approved: '"To the Congress of the United States: Your petitioner, the Grand Army of tbe Republic, Department of Indiana, respectfully represents that in justice to tb.3 veteran survivors of tho war of the rebellion they should be put on the same foot* log with tho surviving veterans of tbe Mexican war, and to that end they, the said survivors of the war of the rebellion, should be placed on tbe pension roll of tbe United States, when they shall arrive at the age ol sixty years. This department, therefore, asks that Congress shall enact a law providing for the payment of a service peneion of $12 per month to each ex-Union soldier who has been honorably discharged from the service when he shall have arrived at the ape of sixty years."

Hie earlier life was .epent with his father upon tbe farm, up to the time ot his marrlaRe wlthMiBB White. His first wife lived three je»rs, and he theo entered Asbury (Depauw) university, where he remained two years. Upon his graduation ho entered the ministry, and had remained in the service of the Lord ever since, proving himself a most energetic, affable, and In every respect capable servant. He was tbe first man ever licensed to preach by Dr. John L. Smith, who Is la attendance at the present conference. Dr Blrchs' second wife was Ml«§ Cynthia Stevens, of Lsgro, who died ia '93. Of their union four children were born f three of whom survive. They are Mrs. Emma Daniels, wife of the pastor of the Flrat M. E. church of Richmond, Mrs. Rosa M. Hltt of Evanston, 111., and Eddy A. Birch, of Battle Ground. On tbe first day ot last August at KokomO, Rev. Birch B-SS again married by Rev. Parr to Miss Angle Cherry of Elkhart. Much as might be said o£ bis earnest and upright life as a citizen, Dr. Birch has been pre-eminently a success in his ministerial career. As a pastor he was always both admired and beloved by bis people, and was noted as having been one of theyoungest presiding elders of tbe conference. This was In 1861. when he was placed In charge of tbe Goshen district and tie was at that time but 36 jears of age. It is a coincidence worthy of note, that Dr. Birch. wa« appointed when the conferedee firtt met in Lajfansport In 1M9. Btahop Waugh wai the pre- BidlnK officer.

A Patient ModcL The other morning, says a latter from Algiers, an English lady who desired tc take the portr.-lit of a rag-jjcd, but "picturesque" Moor, whom she met on the street, got him in position, but found on examination that she had neglected to bring 1 an important part of her kodak. So she ran back to the hotel, two blocks away. She there met some dear friends from London who had just arrived; so she forgot all about the Moor and the kodak. After dinner, eight o'clock, she remembered, so, with an escort, she hurried to the spot. There the old Moor sat, just as she had left him, facing 1 the instrument. "Long time take picture," he said. He had been there since ten o'clock a- m. ol that day, but the business of sitting still suited him. Wouldn't Trtut Eo««b«ry.
