The strike of the plate glass workers In the factories at Kokomo and El wood has been settled and the men have returned to work. The quarries at Kenneth supply tbe factories with sand made from crushed boulders, and the strike materially interfered with this work. Many car loads of crushed boulders are sblpped from Kenneth to the glass factories. Tne boulders make a superior quality of sand and Kenneth promises to soon exhaust the boulder supply In that vicinity. Death of Mrs. Aitkon Mrs. Mary Aitken, wife of Robert Aitken, of Fulton, died at 7 a. m, Saturday, aged 86 years. The funeral will be he;d at 2 p. m. tomorrow. Interment will be made at Rochester, The deceased was an aunt of Mrs. D. A. Hauk, of this city. Mr. and Mrs. Attken were married more than sixty years ago, and resided in Lo#ansport In an early day. They came to this city by wagon from New York and moved to Fulton over 40 years ago. They had but one child, Mary Aitken, wife of Frank Kannells, of Rochester, who was formerly engaged in the furniture business here. Mrs. Aitken was apparently in good health up to Saturday, when she was taken suddenly ill. Mr. Aitken Is aimost helpless from rheumatism. He Is well-to-do. HOT REVENUE ENOUGH. Dingjey BiU Receipts Fall Far Short of Expenses. ITHNLET FACES A BOHD ISSUE. PreMut Deficit Is »45,OOO,OOO, and Secretary Guff It Tronbled—Construction of Public Bulldinpt Delayed—Serioni Outlook for the Administration. The treasury officials are realizing that the Diugley tariff law will not produce revenue sufficient to meet the es- penditnres of the government either this year or nest, and they are doing what they can to retrench. But, do what they may, the furore is not very encouraging, and a bond issue appears probable to tide the government over its period of distress. ' The total expenditures for the fiscal year 1897 were $305,774,000, and they are constantly increasing. The pension list is being swelled annually, and for the current year a deficit of $6,000,000 will have to be provided for by congress, making the total of pension expenditures $147,000,000, or slightly in excess of the entire internal revenue receipts for 1897, The navy department has asked for an. increased appropriation for the construction of war vessels. The extensive coast defenses in course of construction by the war department will require increased appropriations to continue the work. The business depression has caused postal receipts to fall $10,000,000 below the postal revenue, and this deficit will have to be provided for by congress. The policy of the treasury in delaying the construction of public buildings, many of which were appropriated for two years ago, has had to be changed under the political and commercial pressure, and Secretary Gage announces he will push them to completion. There are now 33 public buildings in course of construction, including the immigrant station at Ellis island, which will cost |500,000 and have to be paid for out of this year's receipts. For several years back all river and harbor improvements have been curtailed to a minimum. This year there will be an organized effort in congress to push through a big bill that the congressmen who are candidates for re-election may improve their standing with their constituents. It is this condition that is causing Secretary Gage apprehension as to the future. The deficit at present is $45,000,000, but when the proceeds of the sale of the Union Pacific are paid in it will be reduced. Congress will find the available balance iu the treasury, including the gold reserve of $157,000,000, less than 8210,000,000, leaving the currency with which to transact current business dangerously low, considering that it has to bo distributed amoug nine subtreasuries of the country. In this predicament decretory Gage is holding expenditures to the lowest notch. He says he can tide over affairs until some time in the e;irly spring, and be hopes congress in the meantime will afford relief. He may be able to do this owing to the fact that the treasury will receive in currency, apart from the bonds deposited from the sale of the Union Pacific railroad, §54,000,000, which, after deducting §30,000,000 due Jau. 1, 189S, on bonds of the other Pacific railroads, will net the treasury $24,000,000 in currency. Without this sum the treasury would not be in a position to pay its debts in currency and would have to resort to gold payment or a bond issue. Mo member of the administration is so optimistic as to express the belief that congress will or can in the present condition of political paivies puss this winter any measure of currency relief or any measure to increase the revenues. With a deficit that is constantly growing and without relief from congress treasury experts fear the administration will be confronted in -the snriix? with «ii£ ic~.r XMAS HOLIDAY SUPPERS! -PRESENTS- Best Patterns!

Third and Market Sts. sity of issuing bonds to carry on the government. It is apparent now that bad not the Cleveland administration issued bonds the treasury account would today stand thus: Bonds issued, $262,000,000; realized, 5203,000,000. Treasury balance today, $202,000,000, difference, $91.000,000. In other words, the treasury would now be ,?91,000,000 worse off i than nothing. The conditions which confront the administration and congress are indeed serious.—New York Journal. WHY WAR IS WANTED. It Will Enable Monopolies and Trusts to Hob the People. It is very clear now that the Dingley tariff bill will not produce revenue enough for the support of the government as at present administered, says the New York News. On the contrary, it is enlarging ths deficit every week and every mouth, and it must be radically altered at once if the country is to be saved from getting too close on the brink of bankruptcy. It is not considered expedient, however, to admit in manly fashion that a blunder was made and the chances of provoking a war, in which little or no glory or advantage is to be gained, are to be taken in order to deceive the people as to the wisdom of •Republican economic legislation. The monopolies and trusts which contributed so liberally to the ^Republican campaign fund last year do not want to forego the many more millions of dollars that they can squeeze out of the people under a high protective tariff, and if the tariff cannot be maintained without a war to cloak it, why, a war we must have, and the working masses must pay for it Tailor and Draper, BETWEEN ONE THING wrt ANOTHER we manage to tura out the belt &t- tlng,eiqalsltely ftnlsnw) and diatln- gne suits at clothing to to Men In Logsngport.

The establishment of the .system of breeding the thoroughbreds on the wholesale plan a few years ngo directly resulted in overproduction, wiDh a great demand later upon tho race tracks to save the breeder by giving extended racing and larger purses. There is absolutely no demand for fillies, marcs or sires. They sell at prices that seem ridiculous in compuri- ';on to the viiluos of a f«w years ago. Dams and sires, richly bred, who havo produced greuc horses, £O for almost nothing. The business has grown unprofitable through overproduction. The evil is righting itself. It may be a heavy financial loss to some men, but if so they have simply made a losing business investment.
