DESTRUCTION Of the TwUlIa Station and Office Bulling Iky *lre. •me «f Va| n »ljl« Becsrds Aliw Cmsnmed by tlie Flamen—A $10,000 Loss. The large and handsome station ^nd office baiildlng of the Vandalia company at, Sycainjre and Godfrey .treets, was ruined by fire between 5:30 and 8:50 o'clock last evening. It was a two-story frame building, and the loss is between 18,000 and $1.0,000. The records in the office of Trainmaster Burke, Master Carpenter Finch and Supervisor Bowen were a'so destroyed. Charles Morehart,, the trainmaster's clerk lost a new typewriter. The build ing was insured bv the tennsylvanta railroad company, which controls the eotlre VaEidnlla system, but the amount is not known to the local officials. The contents of the bag gage room were saved from the flames. The instruments, tick ets and caiih were taken from the telegraph office before the flames reached that part of the building. The building was heated by a furnace located in the basement where the fi.re started. Coal was used in the furnace, which is supposed to have become overheated. It was about three o'clock in the afternoon when the lanitor visited the base ment last. ' Shortly after 5 o'clock James Mack, the operator and ticket agent, first discovered smoke in the building and shortly after the flames burst through the floor. He escaped from the bnlloiing by crawling through the noith window of the ticket office onto the platform. Supervisor Bowen, who was in his office on the second floor, alsio escaped through a window. A baggage truck was pulled up under., the window and the' drop was thus ru- dnced to four or five feet. The fire department responded promptly to fihe firsit alarm, but owing bo the fact that but two lines of hose jould be stretched, .the firemen wojked at a disadvantage. They did well to save the freight house, across the track from the station. Tfie ruined building was the largest and handsomest on the Michigan division of the Vandalla. Tbe original depot building was enlarged about three years ago to accommodate the officials of the Michigan division, now located at Terre Haute. It is now thought that while the company will erect another building, it will be an iinsignilicant affair, wheia compared to the one just destroyed. The department, was called a second time at 10:30 last night to cx- lingulsh amother outbreak of the flames. Superintendent Hatch and other division officials came up from Terre Saute, this afternoon,, and arrangements will likely be made at once to rebuild the station. the* Impwrtmnt Cases WWck Come Dp for Fluid Settlement. The supreme court will resume its work today. There is pending lia the ourt a number of constitutional uestions Involving acts passed by he last legislature, but it may be ome time before the court will hand all the decisions. Ooe case Involves tbe law regarding the election of county superintendents. This case las been advanced on the court locket. Another law to be tested is that making tbe terms of county treasurers beginning- on January 1 after election. Tbe appellants have not tiled their briefs In the case There is a case which assails the constitutionality of girniahee law, and another that is known as the "co- employes' act." Tde court is to also pass on the legality of the act luthorizlng courts to sentence prisoners to indeterminate periods In prisons ana reformatories. A GBEAT OPERA.

'Call up phone 110 and have our wagon stop for your work.,. ., THE PUMPS AT WORK. Oil at Walton Being Stored In Tanks. Big Expense for Trriint Officers. The expense Tor truant officers under t&e new educational law will be larger than was counted upon, for e reason that they will be employed 'or a longer period than was named at the uime the bill was under discussion. It was a popular impression that they would not be on duty more than two months, but .their iervices are averaging longer than that. In Fountain counoy a few days ago, the county commissioners .•efused to pay the bills of two tr.uant officers who asked for $160 each for eighty days. To test tbe meaning of the law on the point or service a 'riendly suit WELB brought. Judge Babb has just decided that the truant officers were legally emtitled to $2 a day for the entire school year should he school authorities! appoint them for that length of time. Natural G:as Decision. The court at Klchmond has de; ilded against the natural gas company as follows: "The rule promulgated by tbe defendant on the first day of September, 1897, fixing the price of gas to consumers at 12i cents per thousand cubic feet, when used for fuel purposes only, and when used by consiumers for botbi fuel and heat- Ing purposes, at 20 cents per thousand cubic feet for both purposes, unjustly discriminate* against those consumers who use such gas for both purposes, as far as the use of natural gls for fuel is concerned, and cannot be enforced against such consumers, as far AS the use of such gas for fuel purposes is concerned." New Laundry Firm. Mr. John Vlney, who has been with H. Wiler & Co. so long, has formed a partnership with ICr. Charles Malben in the laundry business on the Westside. The popularity of both members of the firm, together with the excellent reputation of the laundry, Is a guarantee of prompt and satisfactory service and promises a successful career for the new firm. Work Temporarily Suspended on Account of" Imperfect Pumping Machinery. The pumps were set to work in the Walton oil well last Saturday aod after some 40 barrels were stored away in the tanks, pumping was suspended on account of some detect In the machinery. The olHs of a superior quality and from what can be learned tbe well will prove a good producer. Pumping was resumed again yesterday and will be continued until the value of tbe well is ascertained. The belief is that the well is on tbe edge of the pool, and that further explorations will develop a very productive field : A. Findlay, O , firm will erect a derrick on the Chick farm southwest of Walton this week and the Logansport company expect to locate a well on the Ijams farm. TheaBunker Hill company will likely set the drill 60 going this week on the Snafer r arm. It has been disclosed by the pump In the Bumgarner well that water abounds below the oil. The pump brings up one barrel of water to every two of oil. There are not many wells however in which water Is not found with oil. Later—The pumps are working satisfactorily today and the oil seems to be increasing in volume. Rural Delivery a Success. The experiment of the free delivery of rural mail begun near Muncle mcire than a month ago is proving a success, and is accepted as a great boon by the farmers. C E. Lam t, carrier, has just made his monthly report to the, postoffice .de j»:ctment, which shows that the cost tff delivery and collection of pieces of ihiiil matter for the month has been & fraction over 2 cents for each piece. In other places where the experiment lias been tried the cost per piece has been from 1J to 6 cents. Officiai f rcsimHe of Meda! Awarded PRICE'S mm POWDER 1893 Circuit Court.
