ILOGANSFORT, IND. SOMETHING Some men Jalk in whispers; others have voices loud enough to be heard by the fishes at the bottom of the sea. Some men, are always ' telling- you something in the strictest confidence and as a rule you have heard it before. That is'nt my way. I have no confidential communications to make to you, and if I had I would not resort to printers ink for such a purpose. I simply want you to know that my line of . ; Spring Suitings, Spring Trousers and Spring Overcoatings Is large, and complete, and that we are ready to serve you ITALY'S THREAT. WASHINGTON, April 13.—It is learned on the best of authority that Secretary Elaine's .reply to the last communication of Premier Eudini has not been sent to Rome, as was generally supposed to have been the case. In view, of the reported threats from Rome and in the absence of any denials of those reports by the Italian premier, the president and his secretary of state- have resolved to withhold their answer. The dispatch which Mr. Elaine prepared last week still lies on the president's desk, and it will not be forwarded until the Italian government disavows any responsibility for the sensational reports that are constantly appearing in the Italian papers as to what the government means to do under certain contingencies. In other words, the president has got his 'mad" up and in effect declares that so long as Italy is said to maintain a threatening attitude the United States will do as they please about continuing the correspondence. If a rupture of a diplomatic relation is necessary the process will begin at this end. It may he added, too, that if the threats cabled from Rome are not soon disavowed by the Italian government Minister Porter may be, like the Baron Pava, granted a leave of absence. This .nformation comes from two sources,. joth of which are thoroughly reliable. Secretary Elaine's reply will be too comprehensive to be hurried. It will cover the whole question of Italian mmigration, the character of the ubjects of King Humbert who were ynched at Ivew Orleans, other classes of criminals, and the disposition Italy las shown to protect its fugitives from ustice who have fled to the United States. There will be enough in the reply to require some time for the Rudini ministry to digest. In the meantime the grand jury at New Orleans will have time to pursue its investigations. ROME, April IS.—Up to noon it has been impossible to learn anything further concerning the report that the Italian cabinet had decided to- request United States Minister Porter to leave Rome in case no reply to Premier Rudini's last note is received from Secretary Elaine by Tuesday. Officials are reticent and journalists are unable to secure definite confirmation or denial. At the American legation nothing- can be learned. Minister Porter has heard nothing except what he has gained from the papers. In well-informed circles the prevailing opinion, as nearly as one can gather, is that the premier will not proceed to extremities at this juncture. It is argued that whatever beneficial effect such a display of vigor might have in increasing the popularity of the present cabinet, it must be only temporary, inasmuch as it would leave the J?ew Orleans incident farther from settlement than ever, while the American government would doubtless be so irritated by the Italian policy as to make any settlement impossible. PARIS, April 13.—The Eome correspondent of the Journal Des Debats telegraphs that he is able to confirm the recently published statement that unless the Italian government receives a speedy and satisfactory reply to its last communication on the subject of the New Orleans lynching the American minister will be handed his passports.

WABASH, Ind., April 14.—The board of trade of this city will this week begin an action for damages against the Indiana Steel Company, organized by Pittsburgh parties, who, in consideration of receiving a subsidy of S35,- 000, entered into a written contract to build a $400,000 steel mill in Wabash. After all preliminaries were arranged the Pittsburgh stockholders, who are all wealthy men, refused 'to proceed with the work and offered only a few hundred dollars in settlement, the board of trade demanding S8.000.
