RA1LROAO BREVITIES. .Short Items of Interest fathered From Many Sources. Tbe report of the state commissioner of railroads for the year 1897 shows that there Is a total 13,159 miles of railroad in Ohio, of which 8,999 miles are main track. A circular was Issued yesterday appointing C. B. Adams superintendent of transportation of the Wabash lines, with headquarters at St. LdUis. With this promotion the office of car-service agent on the Wabash is abolished, The Wabash has put in use a new style car seal, which, as a burglar proof affair, has considerable merit. The wires have loops at the ends, which fit over a pin in the setil. When this is flattened by the s«al stamp the wires cannot be pulled out without bringing a portion. of the seal with them. The monthly statement of the Railroad Gazette' shows that in November there were 211 railroad accidents in the United States, in which thirty-one persons were killed and 191 injured. The number of accidents was the largest of any month in the last four years, but the number of persons killed was not unusual. The average number killed in November for five yesirs past was forty- three. The Panhanele pay car, which was burned the other night while standing in the yards at Columbus, has an historic interest, since It .was built before the war by the Michigan Central and being secured by the old Jeffersonville, Madison & Indiana, now the Louisville division of the Panhandle, was used in transporting troops from Indianapolis to Louisville in 1865. Itn 1870 it was rebuilt for a pay car on the J. M. & 1. and In 1885 was again rebuilt for a pay car for the Panhandle, having been in use ever since. It is estimated that 120 millions of dollars have been paid out from the car. TBE TRUSTEE UPHELD. May Abandon 'the Use of a School Honse for Good Cause. The supreme court has affirmed the judgment of the circuit court of Caas county, In the oase of the state on relation of Nerio'iis Ballard and others against John M. Wilson, trustee of Jackson townsihJp, holding that a trustee has a rlight, ic good faith, to redlstrlct his township for school purposes, si as to abandon one of the schools, and lead all pupils that have attended It to otlaer schools in the township. The action was brought to compel the am ploy men t of a teacher at "districted. 10," where a school had regularly been maintained, so long that the school house had become old and badly out of repair. The court says that, while the law does not permit a trustee to change the site of a school house, it does not forbid him to cense holding school in one if he acts la good faith and for sufficient reasons.

BAIKiNG POWDER WORLD'S FAiR,CHlCAGO.J893 TO NAVIGATE TBE WABASH. A JtoTem«nt is on Foot to Deepen the Channel of the Hirer so Boats Can Pass. A correspondent from Jefferson- vllle, writing of line boats that have been built at the Howard ship building yards in that city, says: "One of the boats which will especially interest Indlanaians is the Col. H. L. Gillespie, which is iatende* exclusively for use on the Wabash river. It is owned by the United States government. "Its duty is to make the Wabash navigable. It is now employed with a snag boat in removing snags and stumps from the river as far up as Mt. Carmel. After that work has been accomplished it will probably be pushed farther up, for there is no reason why the Wabash should not be open as far up as Lafayette, as it was la former times, carrying part of the grain trade of the richest valleys in the state. Indiana has been backward In asserting its rights to be remembered in the river and harbor appropriations, and for this reason lictie has ever been accomplished with her navigable rivers. The Glllesple is a Beautiful boat Of 110 feet in length, 2 foot beam and 3 foot hold and is manned by a competent crew." CHICAGO MARKETS Received Dally by W ft. A. R.

At the first meeting of the Indiana Farmers' Mutual Iiaauirance Union at Indianapolis yesterday, Governor Mount spoke on the benefits which farmers may derive from mutual companies.

KOI MUCH IMPROYED. Such Is Hon. Joseph Gray's Opinion of the Condition of the Farmers. Hon. Joseph Gray was in the city today on his way home from Chicago, having accompanied his daughter that far on her way to her home in Topeka, Kansas. Mr. Gray is one of the most extensive farmers in this county, and in conversation with him today he stated that the prices of farm products are not yet high enough to make farming profitable. Hay, timothy hay of the best quality, he says, is selling at Galveston for $4.50 per ton, tbe lowest price he has ever known. This Is trua, notwithstanding the fact that the Dingley tariff levies a duty of two dollars "per ton 1 on hay. He predicts that in case the foreign demand for our wheat falls off after next harvest the price will fall agatu to 50;cenfcs per bushel or less and that now wtteao would be selling for less than 50 cents per bushel if it were not for the extraordinary Cjrsi^a i ! i , i t Mr. Gray insists that at present prices farmers are still gobliged to practice the closest economy to make ends meet and that If the single gold standard Is permanently adhered to It wtll bankrupt farmers who are In debt and paying a high rate of interest to money lenders. He finds that many farmers are abandoning tbe foolish idea that a high tariff benefits those engaged In agricultural pursuits. What convinces them is the fact that the price of wheat went up before the passage of the Dingley tariff and that the price of hay,cottoo and clover seed has gonejdown since the Dingiey law went into effect, He says that the farmers are slowly coming to the conclusion that the increased purchasing power of money under the single gold standard benefits no class cf people except the bond-holder and the money lender.
