This law prohibits taking fish from ihe lakes between the 1st of April and the 15th of June and was thought to be In valid because it was cent to the Governor by mistake, not having passed the House. THE charge brought against Lady Somerset, who bss become very prom- Inent in this country in connection with temperance work, of renting property in London for dram shops, IB a surprising one. Her friend Miss Francis E. WUlard says In her defense that Lady Somerset does not person ally control her estates and IB there fore not to bo held responsible for the acts of her agents. THE coming visit oJ the Northern Indiana Editorial Association to Logansport will not only be of great interest and pleasure to local newspaper men but to all our citizens as well. It la probable that on one of the evenings during the session there will be a pub llo meeting with addresses by representative newspaper men, which will serve to give the people a more enlightened idea of the mission and value of the press. TUB outlook for the revolutionists In Cuba, which appeared promising for a time, now looks dark indeed. The press dispatches, printed in our news columns, indicate that the revolution of the Cubans against Spain is a lost oauee. For the fourth time during the century Spain has successfully overcome a revolution in Cuba. With the capture of Maceo and the death of Crombert, the leaders of the insurgent*, it is stated that the last hope of the revolutionists is sweut away. IT la probable that the long senatorial deadlock in Delaware will soon be broken. On the recent death of Governor Marvil, who was elected last November, the president of the Senate who ii R Democrat, became Governor. Should the leglilature, which is Republican by a pood majority, fail to elect a United States Senator before tbe oloie of the session, the Governor would fill the vacancy and undoubtedly appoint a Democrat. It IB hardly pos- ilble that the Republican majority in the legiilature would permit this to occur. A compromise candidate will therefore probably be chosen within a few days. THE Lieutenant Governor has an. nounced his appointment of the committee, authorized by a resolution passed on tbe laat day of the legisla lure to investigate tbe plans followed by other states in dealing with convict labor. The members of the committee just named are the following hold-over Senators: Christian Holler of St. Joseph and Starke counties; Thomas E. Ellison of Allen, and Henry C.

The Croat Victory Pol Him In the Fore- Iront of Warriors and Gave Dim Iil» •ilelcname, "Little Corporal"— A I'road D»7 for Franc". , ' Bonaparte wrote to the directory that he had expected the passage of the Po would prove the most bold and difficult maneuver of the campaign. But it %vas no sooner accomplished than he again showed a. perfect mastery of bis art by so maneuvering as to avoid an engagement while the great'river was still immediately in his rear. He was then summoned, writes Prof. Sloane in Century, to meet a third emergency of equal consequence. The Adda is fordable in some places at certain times, but not easily; and at Lodi a wooden bridge about two hundred yards in length then occupied the site of the present solid structure of masonry and iron. The approaches to this bridge Beaulieu had seized and fortified. Northwestward was Milan; to the east lay the almost impregnable fortress of Mantua. Beaten at Lodi, the Austrians might still- retreat and make a stand under the walls of either town with :_ornc hope of victory; it was Bonaparte's intention to so disorganize his enemy's array that neither would be possible. Accordingly on May 10 the French forces were concentrated for the advance, and marched so swiftly that they overtook the Austrian rear guard before they could withdraw behind the old Gothic walls of the town, and close the gates. Driving them onward the French fought as they marchcd. A decisive conflict cleared the streets; and after a stubborn resistance the brave defenders retreated over the bridge to the eastern bank of what was now their hist rampart—the river. With cool and desperate courage lieaulieu then brought into action the Austrian artillery, and with it he swept the wooden roadway. In a short time the bridge would no doubt have boon in flames; and it was uncertain whether the shifting and gravelly bottom of the stream above or below would cither yield a ford or permit a crossing by any other means. Under Bonaparte's personal supervision, and therefore with miraculous speed, the French batteries were placed and Dcgan an answering thunder. In an access of personal, zeal, the commander even threw himself for an instant into the whirling hail of shot and shrapnel, in order the better to aim two guns which in the hurry had .been misdirected. Under this terrible fire and countcrfire it was impossible for the Austrian's to apply.a' torch to any portion of the structure. Behind were three thousand French grenadiers waiting for a signal. Soon the crisis came. A troop of French cavalry had found the nearest ! ford a few hundred yards above the j bridge, and were seen, amid the smoke, | turning the right flank of the Austrian,; infantry, which had been posted a safe distance behind the artillery on the op posite shore. Quick as thought, in the very nick of opportunity, Bonaparte gave the words of command, and the grenadiers dashed for the bridge. Eyewitnesses declared that the fire of the Austrian artillery was now redoubled, while from houses on the opposite side soldiers hitherto concealed poured volley after volley of musket-balls upon the advancing column. For one single fateful moment it faltered. Berthier ! and Massena, with others equally do- j voted, rushed to its head and rallied the lines. In a few moments the deed was accomplished, the bridge was won, the batteries were silenced, and the enemy was in full retreat. Scattered, stunned and terrified, the disheartened Austrians felt that no human power could prevail against such a foe. Bcaulieu could make no further stand behind the Adda; but, retiring in haste to the Mincio, the next parallel tributary of the Po, he violated Venetian neutrality by the seizure of Peschiera, at the head of that stream, and spread his line behind the river from the Venetian town on the north as far- as the casemates of Mantua, the farthest eastern outpost of Austria, thus thwarting one—and that not the least important—of Bonaparte's plans. As to the Italians, they seemed bereft of sense, and for the most part yielded dumbly to what was required. There | were occasional outbursts of resistance , to the fierce policy of levying contribu- ] tions. One was threatened in Milan ! itself, but they were all pirt down with high hand." Pavia, which rebelled outright, and unbolted, it's gates only under compulsion, was delivered to the soldiery as their booty. • The moral effect of the action at Lodi ' was incalculable. Bonaparte's reputa- j tion as a strategist had already been es- : tablished, but personal courage had never been tried. The actual battle- acid also was something quite Different from the great theater of war, and men wondered whether he had- the same mastery of the former as of the latter. . Hitherto he had been untried either as tp his tactics or his intrepidity. In both rqspccts Lodi elevated hid literally to : the stars. No doubt the risk he took : was awful, and the loss of life terrible, j titics, too, have pointed out safer ways which they believe would have led to the same result; but in no other way j could the same dratiatic effect have been produced. France went vrild -with joy. The people of Italy bowed before the prodigy j which thus both paralyzed and fascin- j ated them all. Austria was dispirited, ; and her armies were awe-stricken. When, five days later, amid silent but friendly throngs of wondering men, Bo'naparte entered Milan as the liberator of Lombardy, at the headof bis veteran columns, there was already about his brows a mild effulgence,, of supernatural light, which presaged to the growing band of his followers the fulL elory. in. which he was later to shine on the imagination of millions. It was after Lodi that his adoring soldiers gave him the name of "Little Corporal-" HIS MEMORY HONORED. Impreiiire Funeral of » Jap»ne«e War Correftpondent. One of the largest funerals ever held in Japan, say Tokio papers, was that of the war correspondent, Kurnayosi Yam- asita, in Hiroshima, the present residence of "the mikado, a few weeks ago. | More than six thousand people, including, representatives of the emperor, the members of the cabinet and scores of •high and powerful officials, attending it. It was a tribute of the nation to journalism, says the New York Tribune. Yamasita was-sent to the front by the "Tschin-Koku," of Hiroshima. At the storming of Ping-Yang, while in the midst of the fight, he was struck, by a bullet and killed. But attendance at the funeral was not the only honor paid to the memory of the first correspondent shot at the front. On the day of the burial the newspaper men, authors and politicians of Tokio met and adopted the following resolution: "The duties of the correspondents who are detailed because of their education and great abilities to the front to describe for the fatherland the incidents of the war do not differ in any way from the duties of the officers and the troops. The law conies to the aid oi warriors who fall in battle and provision is made for their widows and orphans. But no one cares for the correspondent, and therefore we ho.ve decided upon the following: First—If one of our colleagues fall, all newspaper proprietors of Japan are bound to print that fact in a, prominent place in the issues of their paper for three days. Tributes of rc<.Tiit may be sent to the editorial rooms. Second—All newspapers are bound to contribute, in proportion to the fortune of their owners, to a pension for the dead man's family. Subscribers are also to be requested to contribute. If, because of sickness or wounds, the correspondent is obliged to submit to treatment for a considerable time, the expenses are also to be borne by- us." The proprietor of the paper gave the widow of" Yaraasita a large sum of money. He was one of the most brilliant writers in the country. .,. .. A DIVIDED PEOPLE. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Litest U. S. Gov*t Report The Lines ot Cuiite Will Always Separate the lolinbltiintH or Indln. That the' two hundred and eighty million inhabitants of the continent of India should ever become one nation is so wild an improbability, and, even if possible, a, matter of'so many centuries, that its assumed realization cannot be made the basis oi practical politics, says the National Review. England and Ireland are an example of the slowness of growth of a common national sentiment in closely allied peoples forming one state, and the national unification of medieval JBprope would have been a problem analogous to that of India to-day. For Latin then, as English now, in India was a common tongue for the educated classes, yet the former did not supplant, .as.the latter is not now destroying, the popular languages. And the ideal of a temporal head of Christendom in the holy Roman emperor, with its attendant aspirations, was a sentiment counteracting local or tribal feeling stronger than any that has yet arisen in India from the superimposed authority of the queen's government, while there is nothing in India to correspond with the religious unity of Europe under the popes. For Hindooism and Islam show no signs of decay, and the antagonism between their followers is on the increase. In the traditions of history one of the most' powerful elements of national sentiment, the pride of the one is the shame of the other. The Mussulman glories in Aurangzeb; the followers of Gobihd Singh and Sivaji detest his memory. Intermarriage is impossible, and is a sin even among the myriad castes of Hindoos. There is no historical example of such a miracle as the "amalgamation into one nation of such a multitude of diverse elements, and if it is to be effected the first steps have yet to be taken. A Cseful Dream. The following extract is from an article-in "Longman's Magazine," by Mrs. Leckey, on "The Roman Journal of. Gregorovius:" "He (Gregorovius) made the acquaintance of Baron von Barthausen, a Westphalian, the well- known writer on Russia, who had a tendency to spirituaUSm, and was inexhaustible in ghost stories. Gregorovius himself was a great dreamer. In the early part of the Journal he tells an experience which might be recorded ia the-annals of the Psychical society. When he was a boy at the gymnasium, before his 'Arbiturienten' examination —the equivalent of matriculation—he dreamt that the professor gave him the 'Ode of Horace.' 'Justum ac tenacem propositi virum,' to explain. 'I studied it well,' he says, 'and whea on the day of the examination I entered the hall with my school-fellows, I told them in what way I had learnt what I was going to be examined in. They laughed at me. Prof. Petrany took up Horace and said to me; 'Open at the ode, 'Jus- turn ae tenacem propositi. virum. The others looked .at, me in astonishment, and J passed brilliantly." Marriage in Hungary. In-Hungary a man may many at the age of IS, the girl at 16; in Spain, Portugal and Greece the respective ages are only 14 for the man (?) and 12 iorjthe prospective-bride. In France he must be . 18 and she 15. la Russia the-laws vary between,- IS and 20 for the : 'inen and 16 and 20 for the women.

In his private studio at the castle of Friedrichsruhe, Bismarck has a piece of furniture of which he is particularly proud, although be admits that he is not the legitimate owner. It is an ordinary dining-room table, made of common cherry wood. The preliminaries of the treaty of Frankfort were signed in February, 1S71, in Versailles, in the Rue des Reservoirs, at the house where Bismarck had his headquarters. Thiers and Jules Fuvre were the French dele- pates. Around the table referred to were discussed the articles of the treaty, which was finally signed, after several days' heated debate. The chancellor, on that memorable occasion, closed the argument, of which Thiers throwing up eartnwortfs outside me- town, and occasionally bombard the- native camps in the vicinity. Tho natives also try to throw shells into Tarn- atave, but their guns arc out of range, a=d the shells always fall 500 to 2,000- yards short. At Manangary all the houses formerly occupied by French traders have been sacked and everything movable carried off. One French, man-of-war is always stationed here, and at present two British war vessels, are also in the harbor. It is not expected that any more French ships will be sent here' at present, as it is now in. the middle of the hurricane season." BIS1IAHCK AT EIGHTY. [From his latest Berlin photograph 1 had the best, by refusing to talk French any longer. The Frenchmen being unable to understand a word of German, understood it was useless to insist, and gave their signatures, granting to Germany the possession of Alsace and Lor- raineyan indemnity of $1,000,000,000 and many other advantages. Bismarck proposed at once to the landlord of the house to buy his table, offering an enormous price for it. That gentleman posi- tivelv refused, and for several years, exhibited the table to anyone who wished to see it. It was not the genuine article, though, because Bismarck had a duplicate made during the night by skillful workmen, and sent the original to Berlin. The imitation was BO perfect that the gentleman from Versailles never discovered the truth until 1870, at which time the chancellor had the table in the library of his palace hi Berlin. The owner made a trip to the German capital and tlireatened to enter a lawsuit. He was offered money, but refused it. He wanted Bismarck to be arrested for robbery, and for. his trouble was taken back to the frontier by the police. On his return to Versailles he forwarded to the chancellor an open letter, in which he stated the case, even accusing the German statesman of having taken his dining-room clock. The Frenchman, who, by the way, is very wealthy, has taken the oath that he will equip, at his expense, a company of sharpshooters to regain possession of the table if the war of revenge ever takes place. WAR IN MADAGASCAR. France Han Sent Fifteen Thouuad Men . to Snbdu* the Natlvei. France having voted 65,000,000 francs and 15,000 men in order that her armies may forthwith occupy Madagascar, has appointed Gen. Duchesne to command the expedition. Madagascar may be said to have been in a thorn in the flesh to France since the year 10-12, when she first claimed her right to the possession. The expedition promises to be of a prolonged character, and considering the climatic difficulties which will liave to be encountered, it cannot be viewed without considerable anxiety by both France and England, for the latter has great interests in the country.
