I WHO WILL GET IT? Is (.'ongmsnmn Steele Confronted Wit a Pcstofflc* War.' He Stands by Both Snrejer Bot Other Fellows are Dissatisfied, tn Congressman Steels bas rtcom mended the appointment of HOD. A R. Shroyer for postmaster to eucceed Mr. Hanawalt. Tne present post master's term expires in February An effort is now being made to de feat the appointment of Sbroyer. H has been sick lor some timi and the other aspirants fo the position are trying to con vicce Congressman Steele that Sbroy sr Is physically incapacitated am' will not be able to perform the dutie: of the office. Chairman Powell o the Republican central committee has strenuously opposed the appoint ment ot Shroyer.. He want Sol D. Brandt,, who gesticulated so gracefully while singing sound money songs, appointed, Bat men like Ben Keesling, Capt A. H. Hardy, J. T, Elliott and others have more InflU' ence with Major Steele than Dr. Powell and 'Billy Wilson. Major Steele Is more liberal in his ideas than Dr. Powell or Mr. Wilson. Steele plays poker and drinks good liquor while Dr. Powell never tasted the sweets of either. It is learned from unquestioned sources that Major Stetle wanted the Influence of ex- Sheriff Adams in future campaigns and his recommendation for the appointment of Shroyer was coupled with the demand that Adams be made deputy postmaster. This the rienda of Mr. Shroyer consented to, and if Mr. Shroyer Is made postmaster, Mr. Adams will be his deputy. Mr. Shroyer is afflicted with a physical ailment, from which he irecovers lowly. The other fellows who want the office are telling Congressman Steele that Ihroyer will ne.ver get well and that somebody else ought to be appointed. Dave Bender, a.mighty ood fellow, who ran for county clerk a few years ago, wants the office, and Your Uocle JDaniel Tomllnson would gree to serve another term in such Capacity if Mr. Steele wants an ex- lerienced and capable man to have barge of the office. To a man up a ree, looking down over the hands held by the men In the game, tt would seem that next to Shroyer, the man from Galveston—the late sheriff —holds the best band. YERi: FDNM' 'ffhat the days the Latest Comedy Snccesie, ' Happened to Jones." 'What Happened to Jones,' latest comedy success in these of municipal upheaval, wars and tariff results Is a good aatidote for tboaght. Broadhurst's capital farce, which had a three months' run at the Bijou theatre, New York, and comes with Its splendid cast to the opera house, Thursday evening, Dec. 30th, is described by a well-known metropolitan writer as an IS-karat comedy without a Haw.

Cope, Cecil Kingston, Harry Rose, Anna Belmont, Kathryn Osterman, Mattle Ferguson, Florence Robinson, Mrs. E. A. Eberle and Rose Stuart. Booi- fe.ce handles the lines and actions of Jones with a humor and fineness that) makes the part a delight. THE FIRST "8MOEER" Pronounced a Success by AH Who Participated. When Charles B. Stevenson was chosen president of tbe Pottowac- tomie club he conceived the idea of holding occasional meetings, at wh'ch topics of a character should be informally discussed, in which, all members of the dab would likely be interested. These meetings are to be known by the original and novel name of "smokers." Each member of the club is expected to attend and bring with him one Invited guest. Tbe first "smoker" was held at the club rooms last night and was attended by nearly the full membership of the club and many invited guests. It; was an informal a'lair throughout, in wblch business cares were forgotten and the entire evening devoted to social enjoyment. At 9 o'clock the assemblage was called to order by President Stevenson, who stated the purposes of the club In auguratiog the smokers, and called upon B, F. Loutbain to introduce the discussion of tbe topic of the evening, "The Present Commercial Condition of Logansport." He was followed by Dr. M. A. Jordan, E. B. McConneli, Dr. C, L. Thomas, J. T. McNary, HOD Peter Walrath and Walter A Osmer. Hon, Rufus Magee closed the discussion tiabrief review of the commercial progress of Logansport in tbe past quarter of a century, and presented many valuable suggestions as to the methods to be employed In bettering commercial conditions.

The Girl From Paris. One of the largest audiences of the gjason witnessed and enjoyed the presentation of "The Girl From Paris" at Dolan's theatre last night. A description of the big burlesque is out of the question. In a few words, it is simply a conglomeration of highly amusing absurdities, each with a decidedly French flavor. The company is one of the strongest that has ever appeared bjfore a Logaasport acidieace'. Logan Lodge, I. 0. u. F., Officers.

Barnes, George R. Valle, William Cassube. AS TO THEATEES. l)r. Hunter Says AH That is Needed is Discrimination. Rev. R, V. Hunter,of Indianapolis, appears to have struck the nail on the head! in a sermon delivered by him ihere Sunday. He says: "As to attending theaters,! am persuaded that the word we want Is discrimination. We should discriminate between those which are cunt on a low plane and those which'are works of real merit and acted in decent garb and manner. A bad novel is an evil thing. We must discriminate in our reading, eating,, associations, everywhere. The same rule applies to our amusemeatj. All Intelligent people agree now that It is proper and healthful to read aa expurgated copy of Shakespeare. Is it any worse to see a chaste exhibition of those plays. GEE=WHIZ! That's what the man said when his laundry came home yellow, orn and faded. Then he concluded to try MARSHALL'S LAUNDRY, and his linen was returned as white as snow ancl without being torn in the least. Call up phone 110 and have our wagon 'Stop for your work.
