Since the adoption of the carrier system the location is a mat'ter of little concern to patrons who live within the boundaries of the deliv ery service. CHILDREN IN FACTORIES. The State Inspector Finds Many of Them—No Prosecutions Yet State Factory Inspector McAbee has been upon another tour, d aring which he visited factories in Nobles- vllle, Cicero, Atlanta, Kokomo, Sims, Swayzee, Marlon, Falrmount, Sum- mitvilie and Anderson. He says he found a good many children employed in some of these places, and be was assured by the factory owners that the law will be complied with from this on. In one factory he found one child only eleven years old. "Some persons have wondered why T am not prosecuting the factory owners that we violating the law," said he. I made up my mind that I would not begin any prosecutions during my first tour. If, after a reasonable period of time has passed the law is not complied with, I will insist that the penalty be applied." ANYTHING But a Klondjke Success Was the Kloudyke Club's Dance- The Klcndyke club attempted to give a dance at Dolan & McHale's ll lasts night, but the affair proved anything but a Kloadyke success. About 11 o'clock Michael Fornoff, jr., leader of the orchestra, fearing ;hat it would be a "frost," sought a <ettlementof his bill, but failed to ind the manager of the BLlondyke. Be had skipped with the cash. Then, notwithstanding the entreaties of the dancers, Mr. Fornoff and his party of musicians boxed up their instruments and quit the ball room in disgust. I'hristmastide Concert. The Chrlstmastide concert given at th e First Presbyterian church last evening attracted an appreciative audience but one less in numbers than the excellence' of the entertainment merited: The first part of the programme included two numbers by the chorus choir of the church augmented to forty voices, a solo by Louis D, Elchorn and a song by the Chimes quartette of young ladies. Part second was the cantata "Bethlehem," which treats of the birth of Christ, tha flight into Egypt and the return. The leading parts were taken by Misses Gertrude Winter. Abby|Howe, Frances Lux, Edna Stevens: Messrs, W. T. Gifte, harles Martin, Roy Johnston, John M. Aahby, accompanist was Miss Miriam M. Mullen. The chorus was well drilled and worked in splendid unison and the solos, duetts, and trios were finely rendered. The success of the entertainment again reflects credit on the ability and persevering work of the director, Mr. Eichorn. Six of tbe Best Perfumes Ever made. For sale at Graves' book store. Official facsimile of Medal Awarded OR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER RAILROAD BREVITIES. Short Items of Interest fathered From Many Sources. Charles Morris, the Panhandle freight conductor, is on the sick list. J. B. Van Voorst, the Panbandle freight brakeman, who injured internally Sunday by a fall at Saratoga. The time of employes in the Ualon Pacific shops at Cfieyenne and Lara mle has been reduced from five to four days a week and from eight to seven hours a day. The Wabasb lines, in the second week of December, earned $250,410, against 1222,689 In the corresponding week of 1896, and against 1252,238 in the corresponding week of 1895. The Panhandle lines are not only handling a very heavy through business, but the tonnage of mercnandise handled in a local way in their territory exceeds that of any former period In the company's business, A wreck occurred on the Panhandle this morning at Denham. It was a jear-end collision. First 78 struck 70 derailing several cars. The trainmen escaped injury. The wreck crew was called out from this city. John Winger, a Panhandle supervisor, has been granted a twenty days' lay ofl on foil pay. This is due to his faithful service and close attention to business. He will spend his vacation with his parents in Wabash county. The Wabash railroad won in the injunction proceedings brought against it at F.t. Wayne by the city, and the road can now proceed to raise the Gay street bridge to a height making it safe for brakeman to pass under it while on the cars. The net earnings of the Pennsylvania lines east ot Plttsburg for the year 1897 are nearlng 121,000,000. a total not reached since 1891, which, on the conservative basis of 1896, would show $9,549,000 earned to be disbursed in dividends, or 7 per cent, leaving considerable balance in the company's treasury. Two engineers were killed In a a wreck on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois railroad, last eveniag, at iayuga, Ina 1 ,, fifty miles north of Terre Haute. A freight train stood on the passing track and just before a passenger train was due to one of the brakeman on the freight thoughtlessly opened a cut-off switch about midway of 'the passing track 1 When t-he passenger train arrived at full speed It struck the freight train about midway. Buth engineers were killed and several passengers injured. Seven cars were ditched. A Wabash brakeman, on first section of 98, which passed through Huntington yesterday morning, fell from his train when about six miles east of Huncington. Ti.e brakeman's absence was not discovered by tbe train crew until going Into the Ft. Wayne yards. A telegram was sent back to Roanoke and other stations along the road asking them to look for the body along the track, as they were of the opinion that he had fallen from the cars and had been killed. On account of the .icy condition of the cars, the brakeman slioped and fell over the side of the ars, landing in the ditch at the side of the track. He was slightly stunned by the fall, but escaped any injury. He waited for and boarded the second section of No. 98. When at Roanoke he wired his train crevr at Fort Wayne that he was all right and that he was coming on second 98. \ DEMOCRATIC MASS CONTENTION. The Great Christmas Beautiful Jackets and Furs.
