Watei'ioo, (la)., Courier: Tlie arguments iu the case against Bov. George El Scott for seduction, were concluded Saturday evontug and at 2 o'clock this afternoon Justice Miller rendered his decision, binding the defendant over to the grand jury In the sum of 92,000. Scott will probably make no effort to furnish bail, but! . habeas corpus proceedings may be commenced in the district court. If the defense succeeds in showing that tlie evidence Is not sufficient to hold Scott he will be released, but County Attorney Dawson is confident that the preacher will be lu-ld to answer to the grand jury. In defwisc against the writ of habeas corpus, if such proceedings are commenced, the State wHl show to the court that iu addition to the evidence Introduced a great deal that cam be produced was not brought from Indiana for the preliminary on account of the expense, and-will therefore nsk that Scott be detained. Information coming from a good source is to the effect that the defense will undoubtedly sot np a pica of insnn- Ity.' It now seems that this has been definitely decided upon as a plan of (!•> fcnsc, and Information charging Scoft with Insanity may be filed before the board of commissioners by Mrs. Scott at any time. The prosecuting 'attorneys ready to meet this proposition and declare that Scott will either go to the penitentiary or the Insane asylntn.

The sermon was at ouec a clear exposition of the enormity of such offenses and a warning to all to avoid the influences from which siicJi offenses come. Ottum.wa Courier: .Tiie' parents of Daisy Dorian, the 10-year-old Waterloo girl who doped with Preacher Scott, must be queer people. They permitted •tho's'ui-l to return home from Indiana !n '•company with Scott and the sheriff, and as they sent her no money Scott paid shier expenses. The obsei-rau'on may be "unjust, but it would appear that there lias beeiu a serious lack to the home 'iraiu'lug of the young girl. • • ''Register: If the'law cnomert reach the "Rev'!" Mir.

ThL name of the building is appropriate The headquarters of an absurd "unity party should be placed in a. building of that nnrne. But, alas! the Tents In the Unity Building are payable only in gold coin of the United States, -"of the present weight; and fineness." Governor AH- geld will not lease his space in theTJnity Building upon any oilier terms than the payment of.tbe rent In gold. : His leases all contain a gold provision- Let them cc-ine! They are welcome! Let them occupy Unity rooms.' It will bo a dally and constant object lesson rhat tJie silver party : of -the United States was compelled to pay gold rent, for campaign headquarters. One of the groat silver party leaders exhibited such, a scandalous distrust of the silver, party that he would not.lease rooms for silver headquarters, except for gold payment of -rent! • THE POPULISTS And Democrats at the State Convention.

IndiiUiapoIis, July :>S.-Si>eclal. -The Indiana Populist met here today in S.taci! convention. Thoro seemed to bo no'clear idea as to tlie course to be taken in Stale polities'by the pariy thai has allo-wed itself to 1m aOisorued by the national Democratic party. Cane-uses a,nd consultation* 1 were i:i progress wbuii the convention .should have been transacting business. The small attendance was taken by ;hc leaders to indicate th:it thu Democratic parly in India-mi had already swallowed up tin: Populist contingent. There was a strong'feeling to- an independent ticket. Tlie obstruction to the plan of nominating a ticket was t'no lack ol' available candidates. No one was .willing to run. The agents ot tho Democratic-party were busy r.mong the delegates oiniy in tho day. Several Stale nominees on'the Democratic ticket arrived last night, nnd all were anxious that the Pops indorse the State ticket. Republican politicians wi:re complain- i-ng because the Republican State com- miltee failed to t.'ikn a part iu the con- Ic.-it for the control of the convention. The coHVPiiion committee failed or neglected to arrange for aienp rales lo Hie meeting, and tlipre was nmch complaining among I he delegates on that account. Most oC the district meetings went over uutil this mor.ning from last night. T'nu working committees of the con- vcntlnn were only partly made up at 10 o'clock, and they >me.t and outlined the work as well as they could with the wciiliing force on baud. A. B. Keoport and T.

The rank and file arc absent, very much so. • .lulius Ko-sMilieimei- of the Eleventh represented that: district on the Resolution's committee. ' The meeting was held in tje Criminal Go'urt room. ' N.

The financiers -flieu'-took a recess and in each district delegation the hat was passed for contributions to the expense fund. A number of Democratic spectators were np'proached.a-nd the hals were hold oiu to them'until a response was necessary'to save'the victim from em- , barrassment, ' • The committee on'credential reported before dinner. There was a feeling developed during the recess, for a post- --poncnieut of action until September, when action will have been taken on the two-tailed comet mlx-up that is bothering Popu'-cratsl ; ' X.

S/'•Robinson was chosen permanent secretary. ••• Mr. Motslnpersa'id in his speech; "Tha politician and tbe political sap-sucker is In our midst. Shall we hurl them 'from our midst?'". The convention shouted .."Ye?." ''Mr. Sewall was described by jrotsingeras .in oppressor of the poor, and a five times bank president. He went on to say that the Populist convention could have nothing to do with a party that had its ticket in the field. He insisted that the Populist party must'be'presen-ed.' The committee's report favored putting electors in the Indiana field. Robert Todd of Tip ton county, moved that a straight-out ticket be nominated. His motion was deferred until after tho adoption of a-platform, should be accomplished.'-^ was'predicted that the financial plank and the platform' all through, .would be identical with the Sx.

That this contraction was accomplished by a conspiracy of national hankers and bullion brokers constituting an organized money monopoly dominating our national affair*. FINANCE. In all republics laws are the creatures of MIL- people; in all government money Is the creature of the law. and we af- Jinn that no nation ever did or can pay a debt lhat forms the basis of circulating medium iu such money, for though tin> money may bo equal to. the debt it cannot so remain,. The debt grows larger by accruing interest and tho money loss by loss and wear, thus widening"thc gap between the debt and the power to pay the debt; which can. never be paid except In something else besides the money based upon (7, that i.? iu goods,' wares and merchandise, farming, factory and mine products, on which the buyer sets the price.

COMMERCIAL TRANSPORTATION. In a republic where the people who produce the wealth enact the laws which govern the exchange of wealth all enterprises which in their nature are monopolistic should be owned and operated by the government, iu the interests of the whole people, hence our railroads, telegraphs and telephones should become f-he property of the ROV- emmeut national, state or local. .
