Logansport tea drinkers are probably not aware tbat much of the tea imported to this country is impure, and they will be glad to know the efforts of the government to cure the evil are producing |£00d results. It is estimated that from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 pounds of teas have been rejected by tbe examiners at New YorK, Chicago. San Francisco and Tacoma. as below the .standard fixed as admissible. Tbe heavy falling off in the volume of importations — nearly 12,000,0000 pounds — Indicates that the law has been even more effective in stopping the shipment of inferior tea from forelga ports than in preventing the landing of the stuff at our own. Consul Afaer- crombie, at Nagasaki, Japan, reports to the state department that the Formosan teas have been much freeer from dust and broken leal than usual. This is said to have bsen especially noticeable during tbe oarly part of the season and after the wire sieve received from America was distributed around to the several Chinese native firms for use in sift- Ing Formosa tea, It is estimated that yO per cent of the Formosa crop comes to thia country, the remainder going to Greali Britain and the straits settlements. The estimated value of the tea shipped dur lag tbe present oeason may be placed at 13,400,000. in UANLEY & SHANAHAN. Buy and Sell Second Hand Goods. Give us t call. 200 8th street D. E.

Government Protection ie Better Theory Than In Practice. The delay of Mr. Nickura in giving a general exhibition of his new light may be explained by the following from The Forum: "In the present state of the patent law if one can keep his process to himself it is undoubtedly better to do so. Most inventions, however,cannot be guarded by lock and key,ancl in many, if not ail cases, it becomes necessary for self-protection to take out patents. One of the main difficulties in the way of the patentee lies in the fact that it is cot easy for the best lawyer to draw a patent HO that his client will not iipeak reproachfully of him. It-takes a very experienced hand to avoid defects which will nullify the patentee s proper ad"antage. An omission is fatal; an addition is fatal; and ii vagueness is fatal." THE 185)8 WHEAT HELD. Ferj- Little Decrease lln the From Last Year. Acreage John B. Connor, tbe state statistician, is at presenl; receiving reports from the township trustees throughout the state as to the condition of the growi!3|,' crops. The reports so far received are encouraging. Last fall a heavy decrease in the acreage planted in wheat was anticipated on account of the protracted dry spell, but the reports now coming in indicate very little, if any decrease in the acreage from last year, many farmers having planted their fields as late as lihe latter part of November, since which time the rains and the continued warm weather have brought the plant out in fine shape. Whilo the growth attained is not as great as it should be at this time, other Indications point to a fair yield of wbeiat throughout the state next year. Union Services. The attendance last week at the union services In observance of the week of prayer was so satisfactory that the ministers have concluded to continue the same during the present week. Each evening, including Friday, services will be held at the First .Presbyterian church, participated in by the congregations ot the following churches: The Broadway Presbyterian, the Baptist and the Market street M. E. church. Eacn afternoon at 2:30 a daily prayer meeting will be held at the Baptist church. ADDITIONAL ITEMS. •it rugs for $1.50 at Wiler & Co's. Miiss Mabel Penroseis visiting at Walton, Ciias.

A Pharos subscriber at Gordon postoffice (Georgetown) ten miles down the Wabash, writes us that he received a letter a few daps ago that bad been'malled to him from Philadelphia on April 26th, 1889, and had been lyin^ in the postoffice at Georgetown, Floyd county, ever since. The writer made the mistake of making the "return," Georgetown, when it should have been to Curveton or Gordon, Thci letter had not been tampered with, acid was one of hundreds that were recently found accumulated in the Floyd county office, presided over by an old maid, who evidently be- leved that mall matter not called for hould nevertheless be held fast and right. AHDSE1EJITS. Lewis Morrison In "Faust" Tonight— " Uncle Tom's Cabin" Follows. Lewis Morrison, the eminent actor, will appear,at the opera house tonight in his famous impersonation of Mephistoin Goethe's sublime play, "Faust," Morrison and Mephisto are synonomous terms, to speak of one is to call the other to mind. "Faust" will always be popular with theatregoers; 16 contains much to commend it; its idylic theme and strong heart interest will always command hearty support. As Me- phisto Mr. Morrison Is known wherever the Baalish language is spoken, having appeared in this strong character in every city of any size on this continent. He has appeared in the role over 3,000 times, and it has been computed that over four millions ot people have witnessed this grand characterization. Electricity plays an imjportantpart in the production of "Faust" and the effects produced by it are little short of the marvelous. UNCLE TOU'S CABIN. The thaatrlcal season would by mauy be c insldered rather incomplete without tue annual appearance of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in this section. It really seems quite remarkable, when one stops to seriously consider tbe almost perpetual popularity of this daoral and beautiful play. It is not frequent nowadays that the learned and finely discriminating commentator of things theatrical cares to refer at any length te this play as being moral and beautiful, as he considers, usually, that "Uncle Tom's Cabin" has seen its day and should rather be placed in a glass case with the antiquities of earlier ages, and viewed with curiosity and perhaps some admiration as such, but as for its periodically bobbing up for presentation upon the public stage, some of these gentlemen frequently feel that they are somewhat going out of their way to treat its production with much consideration. The Davis company will present "Uncle Tom's Cabin" here Thursday. STRONGEB THAN EVER. William J. Bryan Grows In the Public Esteem. REPRESENTS TOTE DEMOCRACY. Hj» Popularity Doe as Macli to the Principles He CliampiOES as to His Personality—Silver a I.ivlng Issue — Money Power Menaced the Xa±i<m. The New York TTorld has made a double leaded appeal to Mr. Bryan to drop the silver question and. "take up live issues.'' The World opposed Mr. Bryan in 1896, and as it has since shown no signs of repentance it is difficult to understand why it should object to Mr. Bryan adhering to a "dead issue, " says the Omaha 'World-Herald. The World has not always been a good guesser. It made a bad guess when it declared that Low would be elected mayor of Greater New York, and it makes a worse guess when it declares the silver question to be a "dead issue." The fact is that that question is tbe foremost issue. This fact was demonstrated in tbe recent elections, and the statement will be corroborated by any one who takes the trouble to investigate. Tbe conceded facts tbat Mr. Bryan, although a defeated candidate, has steadily grown stronger since the election, that his presence and his utterances are in greater demand now than ever before—these facts are not due entirely to the personality of the man. Although he has a pleasing personality, this could not be strong enough to give him the conspicuous place he occupies in tbe public mind today if he was in truth the "dead leader of a dead cause."

Smoke The srovornment postal authorities have determined upon the subjects which shall be illustrated upon the new aeries of postage stamps to be issued by the department in com- memorsition of the trans-Mississippi and international exposition to be opened on the first of next June at Omaha. They are illustrative of the conditions, progress and accomplishments of the great west from its discovery to our own day. The series compriaes nine denominations of stamps as follows: One cent—The discovery of the Mississippi river by atarqueUe. Two cent—An Indian chief. Four cent—A buffalo hunting scene. Fire cent—"The Pathfinder,"beitig a picture of Fremont raising the flag on the summit of the Rockies. Eltfbt cent —A train of emigrants crossing' the plains. Ten cent—A mining scene. Fiftv cent—A cowboy and cattle. One dollar—A harvesting scene or a greali flouring mill. Two (.dollars—The Rock Island bridge, showing part of the city of Omabu. The Indianapolis News says the representatives of some ot the life insurance companies regret that the position originally taken in the tax case tbat a life insurance policy is not "property" was not maintained all the way through. They nave an impression that the court might have sustained that view as readily as the one that, under the present law, policies may not be taxed. The impression now is that the subject will come to the front during the next session of the legislature. While the members of the state board of tax commissioners are not yet ready to outline their policy, it Is pretty well understood that, if they fall to get a hearing before- the supreme court, they will ask the legislature to amend the general tax law so that it will provide for the taxation of life insurance pulicles. Insurance men say it is not likely that such a law will ever be passed, and they feel confident that If such an enactment should be made they could have It set aside on the ground that life policies are not "property."

Reed's Southside orchestra was present and the party danced until midnight, when an elaborate luncheon was served. The list of presents was large and Included everything in the tinware line. Mrs. John Kienly, sister of Mr. Coughlan,and daughter, were present to enjoy the festivities. The other guests were Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hooley, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy McCarthy, Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Hooley, Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Fansler, Mr. Michael Hooley, jr., Mr. and Mrs. James Hooley, Misses Margaret and Mary Murphy, Miss Lizzie Campbell, Miss Agnes Bllgh, Miss Anna Hannigan and Misses Mary, Kate and Nora Hooley. Jle*t at Indianapolis. The State Board of Commerce will meet Wednesday and Thursday at Indianapolis. J. T. Elliott and W. A. Osmer were appointed by Mayor McKee to represent Logansport. ever cast for a candidate for the presidency prior to 1896 was that cast for Cleveland in 1892, being 5,556,918. Bryan's popular vote exceeded that cast for Cleveland by 898,025. Bryan received 31 more electoral votes than Harrison received when he was defeated in 1893 and 8 more than Cleveland received when he was defeated in 18S8. Since tbe election the great principles •which Bryan represents have grown in favor, and Bryan himself is closer to the people than he was in 1S96. There are some things more to be considered than mere political victory. To be a Dem ocrat these days means something. A Democratic vote emphasizes great prlu- ciplesi rather than a strike for a few offices. Mr. Bryan would not abandon the cause of bimetallism even though such abandonment would mean bis election to the presidency. If Mr. Bryan should abandon bimetallism, the New York World would be privileged to observe, a demonstration of tbe eternal fact that great principles are not dependent upon any one man. Individuals whom God has blessed with eloquence and logic and steadfastness of purpose have been in the past and will be in the future of great service in tbe establishment of great principles. But men are not essential. Some die, some fail in purpose, some succumb to fbe insinuating influences of great moneyed interests, but the principles live. It happens that William J. Bryan is a man of exceptional characteristics. He believes in his cause, is brave enough to defend it in all places, honest enough to adhere to it with the devotion of a patriot and able enough to disarm every gladiator that is sent to cross bis steel. He cannot be bought or bullied from a causa vhich he believes to be the cause of the people. The money power has no one to pit against him in a discussion of the great principles he advocates. These principles are growing in favor with each passing day, and from New York comes the plaintive appeal urging Bryan to "take up live issues." Take up live issues!" This is the same appeal that was made by the Tories to our colonial fathers when the spirit o:E American independence was growing stronger each hour. That was the same appeal that was made by the uncompromising slaveholder to the men who believed in the freedom of all human beings. That was the same appeal thai was made to the people whose patriotic spirit crowded Abraham. Lincoln to tbe front in spite of tbe gold of the same money power and the abuse of the same press that throws its influence against Bryan. That is the same appeal that came from Jeff Davis when he wearied of the demand that the Union should be one and inseparable. It is the same appeal that has been heard in every contest where one of the contestants realizes his defeat, but has strength enoagh with which to parley.
