COURIER MAY 19, 1893. JASPER: Entered at the Postoffice at Jasper Indiana, for transmission threugh the mail as second -class matter.1 News convicts tunneled out of the Prison Sonth, at Jeffersonville, Tuesday night, and escaped. The Warden offers $200 reward for their capture. Postmaster General Bissell finds fault with the Democratic Postmaster at Haute, for taking the office orders after Terre be bad been commissioned, and him not to turn out the Republican letter carriers. Of course if Postmaster Donbam is to be controlled by a wamp at Washington City, he cannot be held responsible for the conduct of bis office -and the service is sure to be inferior.

Dan Voorbees is justly bot, and when Copgress meets again Bissell will likely find trouble. He sbould be removed before anything is done for the Post Office Department, even at the risk of demoralizing the mails all over the country. A man is fool who thinks be can wisely control. the detaile of a city postoffice at a distance of 1,000 miles, and without knowing any of people or surroundings. the cals out, and Bissell with them.

Mr. A. V. Dupont, one the oldest and wealthiest citizens of Louisville, died suddenly of beart disease Tuesday. Only last week he made $150,000 the city a preseut of a handsome manual training school building, fully equipped.

He was 60 years old, in a U. bach- S. elor, and one of a noted family history. The U. S.

The National Cabinet, however, decided it could not be enforced until Congress made an appropriation to pay expenses, as it will cost several milliona of dollars, and the Republicane left the Treasury Mr. Fred. Meinker, of Huntingborg, W88 a fireman on the air line, and with Henry Kline, a brakeman, was killed Saturday night near Belleville, by a wreck of the freight they were working ou. The conductor was badly injured.

On Tuesday the World's Fair. Commission agreed to open the Chicago 8bow to the public on Sundays, notwithstanding their contract with the Government not to. The Government abould withdraw its exhibit, as it seems the show will be wrecked anyhow by 8 horde of conscienceless money grabbers and thieves who are trying to cheat every visitor to it. The Indiana State Board of Education has ordered revision of the ent schools, copy and have indicated to the Indbooks in use in the public Jana School Book Co. what changes they want.

The contract does not expire till July 1. 1894, and if the order is not complied with by that time the Board will advertise for new proposais. The lynching spirit has broken loose again Seymour. Two men were, killed in that county by ruffians, and the murderers lodged in jail at Brownstown. On Monday morning lot of men took some care and an engine at Seymour and went over to Brownstown, broke open the jail, and banged Turley, who dered conductor, and on Tuesday morning another train load went over and banged Louis Trenek, who murdered Henry Faedler.

The coroner returned a verdict that the banging was done by unknown persons. President Cleveland bas moved into his country. bouse near Washington, and is. looking anxiously for a little brother for bis first born. Evansville gained 1,105 in its school enumeration this year.

UT The visit of Mrs. Dr. Scott and husband, of Louisville, to Jasper OD Tuesday last, was taken advantage of by several ladies who knew of the Doctor's well established reputation in the Falls City. This was her first visit to Jasper, but a uumber of our citizens solicited her to come again, and she bas graciously in promised to gratify them some time the near future, when she will endeavor to make arrangements 80 she can remain a full day, in order to accomodate all who may desire to consult both her. Mr.

Scott and the doctor, are very pleasant people, with whom the public find it a pleasure to become acquainted. CHANGED Mr. Joseph Bu chart has sold his market business. to Mr. Heory Cassidy, who took posession on Monday last.

Mr. C. bas retained Mr. Mesmer as the butcher, and expecta to supply his customers with the best of fresh meat at all times. Mr.

May 15, 1893. Speaker Crisp, after spending a week in Vi ashington, left for home Saturday night. He was in a glorious good bumor, as be had a right to be, for it is now as certain as anything in the future can be that he will be elected Speaker of the next House. President Cleveland informed him before be left that be had fully decided, notwithstanding the arguments presented by prominent members of the party in favor of an earlier date, not to call an extra session of Congress before September. have it is stated agreed things The leaders of the democratic, party to be pressed when Congress meets, and it is probable that President Cleveland's message to Congress, maybe his proclamation calling the extra session, will be largely devoted arguments for speedy action upon them -the repeal of the obnoxious Federal election lawe; the levying of an income tax; the repeal of the Sherman silver and of the tax on thee currency issued by state banks, and a complete revision of the tariff, lowering the duties.

The repeal of the Sherman silver law, by which $4,500,000 worth a month of silver is stored in the Government vaulte, without doing much good to anyone except the silver miners, is likely to give rise to a prolonged discussion, and may result in a total repeal of all coinage laws for both silver and gold, for a large number of Democratic Congressmen are free in their expressions that both metals must have like treatment -either both coined on a parity, 88 the Democratic National atform urges--or both treated simply as a commercial commodity, without any legal tender quality to either, the same as cotton and wheat, and the money of the country be. supplied br a new legal tender issue of greenbacks, good for all debts, public or private, national inc'aded, and with no promise to redeem in anything else. There is a growing patriotic that the United States should make no agreement with any foreign countries in regard to the character of its money, but should keep clear ot all entangling alliances. Secretary Carlisle defied the high muck-a-mucks of mugwumpery who tried to bulldoze him into retaining the republican chiefs of divisions in his partment, and is proceeding to replace them with democrats, just as he at first intended to do, and working democrats admire bim more than Reforms in keeping with democratic ideas are being quietly introduced into all of the Government departments 88 fast as their beads have an opportunity to investigate abuses which bave grown up under republican rule. Secretary Herbert's order that no more naval offcere sbould be granted leave of absence to enter private employ was followed.

by Secretary Lamont's determination to stop similar abuses in the army, and not only to refuse to allow it in future but to revoke the leaves of all those offcers now engaged in other occupations, except those granted by special acts of Congress. Sec. Lamont bas also annoonced his intention to make almost a reorganization in that important branch of the War department known 88 the division of recorde and pension. This division is closely associated with the Pension Bureau, as It has to verify the army record of every applicant for pension. Some forty or fifty changes bave already been made in this division, It may be true.

that Comptroller of Currency Eckels has bad no experience in the actual details of banking. but the promptness with which be has acted during the past few. days, when the suspensions of national banks were frequent enough to be alarming, has convinced the treasury officials and the banking world that he is thoroughly posted upon the laws that govern banks, and that as cool headed business man he has never had a superior in that office. He bas proven Limself to be a valuable assistant to Secy. Carlisle, and his promptness in dealing with suspended banks has had no little to do with restoring that pablic confidence without which banks of no kind can long exist.

Mr. Clove' and nade no mistake in selecting that young man for Comptroller Commissioner his a Lochren bard is already finding place very one but he is not disappointed; he did not suppose that be W88 'selected to take charge of the pension bureau merely to draw a salary. Already 8 series of frauds all put through by one pension attorney, located at Norfolk, bave been discovered and a force of expert examiners are now engaged in investigating every case that this attorney bas bad anything to do with, the Commissioner being determined to get to the bottom, and to punish the guilty. The worst thing about the crooked work done to punish the guilty. The worst thing about the crooked work done by this attorney is that it was called to Commissioner Raum's attention last year and lie declined to prosecute him, because it might injure the Republican party.

The amount of money tained by these fraudulent pensionere cannot be exactly stated until the aminers have concluded their investigation, but it is already known that it is more than $100,000. But there is one thing that can be positively stated, and that is. that the frauds will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law by Commissioner Lochren, just as fast as the necessary evidence can be gatbered, regardless of who or what may be injured the thereby. notorious Judge has files" abrogated rule, which was made by Raum to please the pension attorney who indorsed his notes for twenty odd thousand dollars soon after be took the Pension office.

Time is Money When The Grain is Ripe, What the Farmer wants is a Light Machine which is a powerful worker! and uses Least Twine! The Light Running PLANO BINDER. Stored Power successfully, applied to the Light Running Plano Binder, by the fly wheel, renders the machine safe against choking or ciogging in bad grain or miring on soft ground. Uniformly successful tests in all sections of country and in all kinds and conditions of grain during the barvests of 1891-92, have fully demonstrated the fact that the Fly Wheel gives the Binder aniform traction on all kinds of ground, furnishes the extra power consumed in binding and discharging the bundies. The Jones Chain Mower Contrast the gallant bearing of your horses with this mower after a day's work, and the spiritless, jaded gait of the team which has "hauled" any "other make." The Jones Chain Mower will go where any other Mower will go, and with less It is built at a factory and by a firm unclogged with old ditiona. It is the most modern, the best goer and the best mower made! The Plano Self Dump Rake.

The tripping device in this rake is novel, simple strong, and is the only faultless and adjustable tripping mechanism made. We also handle the Plano Twine which is made for the best imported fiber, ALOIS FUHS, W. C. RENNER Apr 21-2m Agents, Ireland LOUISVILLE St. LOUIS AIR LINE! E.
