Lewis Morrison In ''Fanst" Tomorrow Mgut— "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Thursday Night. Lewis Morrison will appear at Dolan's opera bouse again tomorrow night lo his elaborate production of Goethe'* truly Immortnl "Faust," which has been seen throughout tbe length and breadta of tbe land and for tbe past ten years or more always meeting with financial returns justifying tu'e belief that it will, like ths brook, "go on forever." Where so much has been said of a play it would seem impossible to add anything new, nor is it necessary to commend the merits of the production, It has stood the test of criticism ot both pruis acd public too long, however, it will be of interest to know that this season it will be seen with entirely new scenic surroundings, every stage picture has been newly painted and is of new design,wnile eiery costume Is also new, In addition of Mr. Morrison as Mephlsto clever Florence Roberts will be seen as Marguerite and White Whittiesey as Faust together with a capable company in the minor characters. "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN- 11 The Davis company, celebrated for Its work, will present that old but ever popular play, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," at the opera house Thursday night. The scenery is excellent. The plantation scene depicts a typical southern home with its cotton fields, its mansion and Its log cabins. The last scene in this picturesque drama, The Gates Ajar," has perhaps taxed the skilled painter and mechanic more than any other spectacle that the stage can boast. KOKOMO TALENT. Identity of the Chicken Thieves Dis- ourered—In Jail at Delphi. Tom Coy, Mart Short and Dess Hardlnman, (the latter, colored) are cbe names of the men arrested at Deer Creek Saturday morning, for making a general raid on the hen roosts south of Logansport. They reside at Kokomo, and referring to the case the Kokomo Tribune says: "Both Coy and Short are widely known in this city, but if either were ever mixed up in such business before, it has not become public. Coy Is a laborer. He was recently divorced and has frequently been In trouble for drunks and fights, but never, so far as is known, for theft. Short is also a laborer, Is married and has a family of children. Thursday the men hired a horse aod wagon at the J. B. Butcher livery establishment saying that they were going to the uountry for the night, but that they would return the rig by Friday noon. Tbey failed to appear at the time set, but little was thought ot the matter and no one had any suspicions that tbe men had gone on a thieving expedition. But when they failed to appear this morning Mr. Butcher began to have some anxiety for his absent property and Instituted inquiry as to the men and their pos- ADDITIONlL ITEMS.

R.ULROAD CROSSINGS. An Important (n the Supreme Court. trial, filled two bushel baskets. The janitor and six assistants worked all night Saturday night, cleaning up the building; und getting It In shape for opening of Jmslnesa this morning. The Supreme court has made the following ru'ing on the question of railroad crossings: 1.. The fail)'" of an Incorporated towo toenactf ,.utnance for the Improvement of one of Its streets and fix the grade th«reof does not relieve a railroad company, whose track crosses such a street, from the duty to properly construct crossings over Its tract on ihe sitreet, and the town may maintain an act! >n for writ of mandate to compel the company to discharge this duty. 2. A complaint alleging defend ant's refusal to perform a public duty need not also allege a demand by plaintiff- 3. The rights of the railroad and the town are not changed, no matter when the straets were dedicated or how they became streets, provided they are such, at present and the railroad now crosses them. 4. The grading und planking of & way across its track by a railroad company and permitting It to be used as a street lor seven years shows a dedication of such was to the public. 5. Actual dedication Is a conclusion of law and not an ultimate fact. a pleasant surprise Friday evening, at his home on the Southside, by the Cltiisn's band.

Election Gave the Control of Public Affairs to the Plutocracy. Tho New York "World did all in its power to bring about Mr. McKitiley's election. Hence the following World editorial will be of interest: J.'asson of Pennsylvania for chairman of tho ln"ersi:ate commerce commission is another and valuable instance of that tenacious con- iistenny which has been Mr. McKinloy's chief characteristic. Our president is a ma« of conviction i and of courage of them. How shall I intrench myself in power? How shall ] arrange for a rrnominationr These are the inquiries that are ever uppermost in hi m:iud and heart. To answer them ho looks about him for th "powers that be" ill order that he may mals friends with them. He has become convince that those powers are the trusts, the niouopo liisi, the corrupt rings, the busses, the variou elements that industriously and most success ftJly cajole and cheat the people. Arrived at this conviction, lie has acted upo: it with courage, steadfastness and minute con sisteuey; hence the selection of HcKeniia fo the supreme bench, hence the Paxsons for hig! executive places, hence the inexpressibly fon Kimberleys, Demasea und Cohens for uiino federal offices; hence, ceo, the pardoning a 'respectable robbers," with Republican na tional committoemen BE backers, at tile rateo ue every throe weelcs. Mr. McKinlcy has decided tlmt the contro o:! our public affairs has passed from the pco pla to the plutocracy and its allies, the bosse rail political cornipdouists. Ba js using hi best judgment in furthering his ambitions By that judgment he will stand or fall. Why does tbe New York World com plain of the man whom The World oelped to elect? When The World gave McKinley valuable aid in the campaign that newspaper knew that under a JVic- Kinley administration the railroads would be permitted to control the in- ;erstate commerce commission. The World knew that "tbe trusts, the monopolies, the corrupt rings, the bosses, the various elements that industriously ind most successfully cajole and cheat people,'' were large contributors to the .McKicley campaign fund. Did The (Vorld imagine that these elements were zmking their contributions out of a ipiri.fr of liberality? Did not The World mow that these contributions were in- pestments rather than gifts? Did The World expect any bank wrecker to remain in prison so long as Mr. McKinley :ould find eveu a poor excuse to pardon him? The World does right in making its riticisins, but chat great newspaper ought to understand that the time for it o do effective work on behalf of good government is prior to election day. Jc annot expect to obtain good government from men who are elected to office men who have more concern for spe- ial interests than they have for public nterests.—Orraha World-Herald.

The self constituted "monetary commission" has completed its report to the self constituted executive committee of the self constituted and appointed Indianapolis monetary couveution. It is a somewhat lengthy document and need not be seriously discussed. Though it has already been indorsed in advance by .Mr. McKiuley, tho only effect that its introduction in the house can have will be to demonstrate the active and actual lack of harmony thaC exists in the Republican party on the money question. The report will doubtless be introduced in congress as a ''nonpartisan" ficheme, but the moment that discussion begins the fact will develop that it is not only a partisan aff>.ir, but exceedingly inflammatory in its nature. There is BO doubt about the serious defects of our national bauking system. The Constitution has been calling attention to them for years, and on more than one occasion its motives have been misconstrued by those interested in backs. The system, as we have pointed out a huadred times, was not primarily intended as a banking system. Its whole purpose was to furnish a market that would uphold the value of United States bonds. It was not conceived in the peace interests of the people, but was invented for the purpose of enabling the government to sell its bonds issued for war purposes at the highest figure. Judged by what it was intended :o be, and not what it purports to be, there is no doubt that the national ranking system has been a success. We learn from the report of this self constituted currency commission that 'the most serious evil affecting our present monetary system is the threatened degradation of its standard." In other words, there is a threat somewhere in the air that gold may go to a premium aad the people get higher irices for their products and higher wages for their labor. Even higher jrices, withont any premium on gold, would be a "degradation of the standard. " The "standard" was "degraded" from 1862 to 1879, the people received profitable prices for their products, men of enterprise built railways and established industries, and prosperity was the portion of the people. It was too much for the holders of inactive capital. They shared in the prosperity, it is true, but they wanted to have all the prosperity to themselves. They set up a cry about "inflation" and they talked about "inflated prices" until tbe people reajly believed that prosperity was hurtful. So the people sent men to congress who voted for repudiation. The congressmen called it "resumption, " but it was really repudiation, for the people were compelled to pay in gold debts that were contracted in depreciated paper. This was repudiation, and this was what forced resumption meant. It had the practically unanimous opposition of the Democratic party, which has always and everywhere been opposed to repudiation. The self constituted committee makes some remarks about the "standard." It says that "there must be some standard of value." It "must have a market value as a commodity independently of any governmental fiat and of all legal tender laws." It may be remarked here that there never was and never will be such a commodity. Let those governments which have gold as the standard demonetize that metal, and its value will fall below that of silver. Even when coined as money it never has been used as a circulating medium, except in the mining regions. The committee proceeds, "It must have, as a commodity, as stable a market valne as possible, and in order to secure the stability of that market value the rela- ;ion between its supply and demand must be as constant as possible." The 'act is notorious that gold does not ful- 311 these conditions. There is no rela- ;ion whatever between the demand and the supply. The demand for gold is the multiplied demand for all other commodities in countries where gold is the itandard. The supply depends upon the accident of discovery or on the caprice of nature. < To that which we havti quoted the committee adds, "The civilized world las therefore determined that the tandard shall be gold." To. this it may >e replied that the European governments are wholly controlled by the selfish interests of those who own the gold. In this country the gold standard vas imposed on the people withont their knowledge or consent. The deed was iut into the form of law by means of landestine legislation, as the record shows, and was »o covertly carried ont that the president who signed the bill id not know what its effect would be. With these statements of fact we have he report of the self constituted com- ittee to speak for itself. It is entitled o no more measure of respect than the tierance of an individual. Its form Bid substance were dictated by the Gold rast, and it will have just as ranch ef- ect on the public sentiment of the country—BO more, no less—as if it bore the ignatnres of British bankers. The question of the standard will be setrtled by be people. If they want the gold standard, wich poverty prices and panper wages, we are perfectly willing that :iey should indorse the gold stindard. their interest we should like to see iie standard "degraded" by a rise of wages and property values as jcjpared with gold- Bus this matter will be settled by tho eople, and not by self constitnCBd coxn- lissjons.—.
