DAILY PHAROS WEDNESDAY, JAN.19, 1898. CITY NEWS The Indiana State Canning association held its annual meeting at the Grand hotel, Indianapolis, yesterday. The cannera are not satisfied over the prices they obtained last year. Owing to the custom of selling ou early contracts nearly all the souclc of tbe canneries was sold at low azures enriy in the year, and the suosequeut advance in prices benefited the jobber, but not the canner. A disposition was manifested In tbe meeting to wait for the market hereafter before disposing of stock, but many of the smaller "concerns demurred at •ibis. AD effort was made to take preliminary steps for tbe formation of a canning trust that would control the output and fix the prices, butj not much encouragement was given to the proposition. Oaly aboun half of the canneries In tbe state were represented at the meeting. Officers were elected as follows: N. S. Morris, Tipton, president; W. A. Sampson, Muncie, secretary and treasurer.

Here is the description of a bijou bedroom. The walls in this room were covered •with a creamy paper, •with pink rosebuds scattered over it. A few pictures framed in white hung on this wall, •which made a very effective background. The single bed was enameled with brass trimmings, arid a covering of white washing material, over whose surface a scroll was embroidered with •white Asiatic rope silk, made the bee look most inviting. The spread hung well down on each side of the bed and •was finished with a border of deep lace and lu.sertiou. The woodwork was painted white and pink, and in the center panel of the closet door a long iniii|r was set. A little dressing table enameled in white and pink, upon which was a white linen scarf having rose buds embroidered upon it and a deep trill of lace at each end, was placed opposite the mirror in the door. The washstand corresponded with the dressing table and contained a china toilet set in piuk, and before it stood a dainty screen, the woodwork of which was white, and the panels consisted of pink art sertine. At each window was a tiny window seat, upholstered witb pink art cretonne, having a pillow upon it of the same material A little whita rocking f��havr with a cushion seat to match tie window seat was not far distant and also a little table in white, embroidered similar to the dresser scarf. A little bookshelf had a curtain of the cretonne before it. The floor was covered with creamy matting. How to Freshen Black Gloves. If yon will daub ink or liquid shoe dressing on the bare spot, yon will restore the color, but you will not restore the glossy, fresh look of the departed newness. For this quality yon must pot on a piece of clean flannel a touch of sweet oil and rub the dull black spot until it shines like the surronndiag leather. Under this treatment the black kid glove is an economy and will last longer than any other in spite of the fact that other colors may be cleaned and recleaned almost indefinitely. Of course the snede or undressed kid does not need the oil rub—that is confined entirely to the glace glove. The ink - off- blacking is all that is needed softer leather. 1SSS. by American Press Asso ciiuon. Book rights reserved.] S ONE of the de cisive battles o the war Frank lin merits the at tendon given i by recent -writ ers. In fact, it i a'matter for re gret than Genera J. M. Schofield commander of the Federal forces en gaged on that field, does not more fullj treat; the battle and the Tennessee cam paign of which it was the climax in his new memoirs, "Forty-six Tears In the Army.'' His chapters on the events between Dnck river, where his opponent, Hood, began to push things, and the Harpetb, where Hood was virtually defeated for good, are defensive in tone. •An instance of General Sebofield's habit throughout this period of passing lightly over important issues is founc in his cnrt remarks upon the one incident xipon which the venture turned finally, one where an untoward result would have ruined all and placed the, nation's cause in extreme jeopardy. That is in the handling of Wagner's di vision in the crisis at Frrtnklin. The disaster to Wagner and what it involved hare been set do%vn in all accounts as the direct result of a blunder in general ebip. Schofield says that but for that disaster defeat of his fiery adversary at Franklin would have been easy and sure. Yet he has never been able to fix in his own mind the responsibility for it. It would only have been cleared up, he says, by a court martial. Further, the guilty party should have been shot. This matter of Wagner's conduct is but one of many incidents of that three days' campaign from the Duck to the Harpeth which led to controversies between the chief actors and their partisans. In 1881 General Emersou Opdycke printed an account of the campaign and battle whichi 'whether original or not, remains to be answered by the Schofield party. Opdycke commanded one of Waguer's brigades. When disaster fell upon the other two brigades under Wagner and a breach occurred in the center of the Federal line at Franklin, Opdycke, with a promptness and judgment to have been expected from him, but too rarely shown by others in many similar crises, charged and retook Che lice and guns, saving the day. It was owinu to direct disobedience of orders that Opdycke was able to perform this service, ari act justified by all his superiors, including Scbofield, It has been assumed that Opdycke took the fate of his. Brigade into his own hands because of a want of faith in the ability of Wagner, his division commander. But in Opdycke's story there is conclusive evidence that his want of faith related to a commander higher up. ', Opdycke treats the entire interval ot ) Sch'ofield-s leadership not as a campaign of positive nature and results, 1 but as a lucky escape from peril. He says, "That he (Schofield) was not utterly destroyed was due to two causes—first, the want of a little sustained energy on the part of his adversary, and, second, the con- duct''of his official subordinates, uninfluenced by himself." Opdycke's criticisms begin with the first; step taken by Schofield when Hood, with 48,000 Confederates,- confronted him on Duck river. Schofield had there Stanley's Fourth corps, his own Twenty-third corps and Wilson's cavalry, about 30,000 men. The orders to Scho- fiflii from his general in chief, Thomas, xv(.:-u to delay Hood's march northward en as to allow Thomas time to concen- nate an army at Nashville for decisive battle. One of the controversies over the campaign, emphasized by Schofield, deals with this order. It is said that .Thomas should have concentrated oa Dnck river and fought Hood there. Thomas said he would have done so ten days later—that is, Dec. S to 10—but that his troops were too far away when Hood appeared at the end of November, Schofield claims to have saved Thomas one day's grace. He admits having risked the life of his army to do it and that he nearly lost it, bnt holds that the result justified the risk. Opdycke thinks not. With his army on Duck river at Columbia,' 27 miles south of Franklin and 47 from Nashville, Scbo- field learned on Nov. 29 thac Hood had crossed his army over the Duck five miles above Columbia and was striking out for Spring Hill, 11 miles in bis (SchoSeld's) rear and on the pike between Colombia and Franklin. Schofield sent Stanley, with Wagner's division, to seize Spring Hill, keeping three out of his five divisions at Columbia and sending another off at a tangent to observe Hood's march. Meanwhile Hood threw half his force upon Spring Hill. Stanley was able to bluff his foes until night, when they went into bivouac all around him with pickets along hue not across the pike. Schofield moved his army back that night through Spring Hill, reaching Franklin early on tbe 30th. He would have crossed the Harpeth at once, bnt the bridges had been burned. That afternoon Hood reached Franklin ready for battle. OpcJycke says that Schofield gained no time, in fact, and risked his army for nothing. He charges him with inaction, torpor and wane of ability. Instead of stringing his troops over a road 27 miles long, only to be spared by the enemy's laxity, he should have concentrated in front of Hood after he jad crossed Duck river and maneuvered all day the 29th without; fighting, bnt covering the pike for the removal of us trains past Spring Hill Then in he night be could have retired on franklin. IB riew of his many dispatcher; frost; Thomas to hold on at the Dock, to post a strong force at Spring Hill and detain Hood while tbe main army was getting into position for battle ac Franklin, Opdycke says that Schofield should have used the natural advantages of the ground to delay Hood. He cites the cast ;f Lee with a relatively inferior force delaying Grant for weeks in front of tin} James and Johnston delaying Sherman between Dalcon and Atlanta. In short, he assorts tbac Schofield was outrnaiieuvered and outgeneraled. With reference to the disposition of Wagner's division for the delay of Hood after the bulk of tbe Federal army had passed beyond Spring Hill Opdycke is explicit. His brigade was last to leave Spring.Hill, where it warded off an attack early in the day. About coon he overtook the rest- of Wagner's division an a ridge iu sight of Franklin. Waguer, with the brigades of Conrad and Lane, bad halted there under Schofield's orders to delay Hood. Later, under orders direct or implied from the same source, Wagner moved Conrad and Lane to a second ridge a few hundred yards in front of the center of the Twenty- third corps line on Carter's hill, at Franklin. Opdycke finally marched back, the Confederates appearing iu force along the whole front, ready for battle. When Opdycke reached the second ridge and was shown a position in line with. Conrad and Lane, he objected. He says, "Schofield had put them (Courad and Lane) into a position where usefulness was impossible and where the peril at first imminent became so extreme as serionsly to endanger th whole army." Upon Opdycke's protest Wagner al lowed him to take his brigade inside th main works as reserce for the cents brigades of the Twenty-third, corps line wbich was in rear of Conrad and Lan and the key to the field. Hood's at tack overwhelmed Conrad anil Lane who fell back to the works, and there second break occurred, making a bread through which the enemy poured. Op dycke charged forward and repaired th break. After that the battle was in th sands of Schofield's subordinates. Op dycke criticises Schofield for failure t< get into the fight himself, forrernainini .wice as far from the key to his ow position as was the enemy when formec 'or attack and for taking Stanley villa one division north of the Harpecb far the point of danger. Schofield explains this by saying tha be went personally with Stanley's di vision north of the Harpeth to guard against any attempt of Hood to get in ;is rear, as he had done at Spring Hil ;he day before. Hood suffered a bloody repulse a 1 franklin, losing 6,000 men and 13 geu ;rals, but in the end Scbofield, stil north of the Harpetb, ordered his troops o retire from the front of Hood. Tb Opdycke thinks, was the chance to delay iTood, and he eveu says that Hood could lave been driven back to the Dnck riv- T. Selnrield says he didn't stay at Pranklin because his ammunition was hort, he didn't know the'extent of Hood's loss, and having formed junc- ion with Thomas' re-enforcements 'why run further risk?" It was Thorns' campaign for Thomas' united army o settle. Schofield reached Nashville Dec. 1 and other re-enforceinems the same day.

To the clearing up of the controversies natural under the circumstances Schofield offers little: rather be adds to the number in expressly stating that Thomas left him to fight tbe battles of his (Thomas') army and failed to provide means for crossing tbe river at Franklin when hard pushed. Yet the crossing was made upon bridging sent there by Thomas early Nov. 30. He says that Opdycke was inordinately praised for his action at Franklin, whereas he simply did his plain soldierly duty, duty for wbich his superiors had placed him where the crisis found him. Officers and soldiers of the Fourth and Twenty-third corps have contended for years over the break in the Twenty- third corps' line at tbe pike where Conrad's and Lane's retreating brigades entered. On the one hand, it is said that Conrad's and Lane's men caused tbe men in the works to break to the rear, and on the other that the retreating men turned in the works and fought gallantly, tha Twenty-third corps men falling into a panic and deserting their proper posts. A bitter controversy, purely personal, has been going on between Generals Stanley and J. D. Cox as to th« actual command on the field of the Fourth corps troops engaged. Two division's of Stanley's corps were in the battle, and he was in the fighting column of one in the heat of tbe crisis. General Cox .had been assigned to the command of the Twenty-third corps, and so acted during the battle. On the Confederate side General Cheatnam was charged witb disobedi ence of orders in not closing the road at Spring Hill behind Scbofield, bnt was not tried. General Cleburae was verbally rebuked for want of ardor on tnr •ame occasion, bat nobly redeemed Mm-' «elf at Franklin, where he was killed. GEOEOS L. 5l » d «l«5«nes8 of one million C. F.
