COURIER. JASPER: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1883. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT 2 asks the Evansville Courier upon copying our suggestion that the defeat of Hon. I. P.

Gray for the Democratic nomination, should occur, would be the work of wire pullers and would-be bosses excineively, and not of the masses of the party. Now it is not our province to do anything about it, but the history of parties in Indiana for years has not been flattering to the "bosses," when arraved against the honest masses, and it is sure 1884. will prove no exception. There are enough independent voters to always hold the balance of power between parties, and should wire-pulJers succeed in overriding the will of the prople, these independent voters are sure to vote for the nominee the other party, and of course elect him. That's what 'the people are likely to do about it.

When women generally demand the suffrage they will get it in New York. There ie no doubt about that. Either! one of the two parties will be ready to make them voters whenever it becomes evident that the great body of them really want the -N. Y. Sun.

The Sun's statement about New York will apply to ludiana also, and to probably all the States. Whenever a 08- jority of the women demand the suffrage they will get it without any trouble, and there are forces at work which may bring about that demand in a few years. It will be a charming time when gentlemen escort the ladies politely to the polls. No town can long live and prosper and grow, that does not contain live business men who advertise their goods. Show 118 a town that is without this class of men and we will show you a town where trade is dull, where the people complain of hard times and where enterprise is almost entirely wanting.

Good advertising makes good trade, and that too, at low rates, since he who sells quick can afford to sell cheap. A good trade makes a live town, and thus it is that bueiness men bave much to do with the success of the town. -Exchange. The Insane Asylum. The commissioners met on Monday at Indianapolis and finally settled the question of the long talked of insane asylum.

Contracts were made not long since a switch, and preliminaries arranged for the purchase of a site, which, the selection of the Howard farm, for which $17,000 was paid. This closes all arguments. Evansville is in reality to have the Asylum, and the matter is defnitely disposed of. -Evansville Courier. Professor J.

L. Campbell, of Wabash College, who has been conducting the geodetic survey of the state, has published a table of altitudes giving the elevation above the sea level of one station in each county. The bighest point given is at Winchester, Randolph county, 1,101 feet; the lowest Leavenworth, Crawford county, 308. New Albany is 436 feet. Charlestown, in Clark county, is 588, Cordon, in Harrison county, 595, Salem, in Washington, 716.

-N. A. Ledger. At Jasper, Dubois county, S. Nargen and John Stranes, business men and former partners, quarreled Monday glass- over a settlement and fought with beer Both were badly injured and Nargen will probably die.

-Vincennes San. The above is correct with the excepticns that no such men ever lived of the in Jasper, there fight kind between any persons in Jasper, and that no one has been seriously injured. Eighteen of the Democratic Senators in the Indiana Legislature hold over, and on this basis the State Auditor figthat the next Senate will stand Reures thirty-four up Democrats and sixteen with the bouse a tie if the Reall the doubtful districts publicans, The next carry Legislature will be called publicans upon to elect a United States Senator. WATER. -White river was 80 Monday and Tuesday- that the HIGH high last couldn't cross, and the Portersville do turn back from ferry The mails were crossed in Loogootee stages there.

skiff. A good deal of bottom corn is under water. It is said that the population of Nevada is steadily diminishing. The population in 1880 was only 62,000, and if the present ratio of shrinkage continues, shows it will be only 40,000 in 1890. This the folly of admitting new states before they have acquired a settled population.
