Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Dolan cancelled the date of "The Hearthstone" company here and so telegraphed the manager at Fort Wayne, that aggregation blew in yesterday and after many threats of damage srtts and the like, blew out- again. That -'The Hearthstone" company Is touring the country under false colors Is shown by the following letter to Mr. Dolan, on the strength of which he booted the plsy: "NEiW YOKE, July 13, 1897. "William DolKB, Esq., Logansport, Ind.; "Dear Sir:—Kindly give me your open two weeks, January mh to 24th, for above attraction. Will carry strong company (18 people), specially engaged and personally renearaed by Mr. Herne. Will carry all scenery and properties used In the production, and everything will be up to Mr. Heme's standard. Kindly advise me at once, with very best terms. "Yours truly, "p. L. WHEELER, "158 W. 36th street." AN EYE-OPENER. Wm, Dolan was not aware tbat he was being Imposed upon until Thursday, when Harry Hardy, a representative of Messrs. Miner and Herne, arrived in advance of "Snore Acres." A statement by Mr. Hardy to the effect that Mr. Herne has no connection whatever with "The -Hearthstone," wtaich was written by him years ago and presented under the title of "My Colleen," served as an eye-opener. The statement of Mr. Hariy wast backed up by cQe following .letter from Messrs. Miner and Herne: "Hew York, Jan. 8, 1898. "To Thu .trloal Manag-era and Dramatic Editoni: "Owing to numerous mlsrepressnttt- tiona that are being made in regard to James A. Herne and his "Shore Acres" companies, we deem It but just that you should kaow that we are In no way connected with Mr. Fanrell and "The Hearthstone Co." This organization is using Mr. Herne'9 picture and starring his name without our authority. "'The Hearthstone' was written by Mr. Herne for Mr. Farrell some years ago, and was formerly played under 'bhe title of 'My Colleen'. "Respectfully yours, "MINER & HERNE." Toney Farrell, owner of the play and the star of the company, says he has a right under a contract to use Mr. Mr. Herne's name and picture on the bills, if he so desired, and would bring suit against Miner & Herne for damages. "My show has been out twenty-two weeks," declared Mr. Farrell to a repreaenlditive of tue Pharos, "anJ if I had no rights!, Miner would have stopped me long ago ago. The fact of the business is that Miner is sore because we have been making money, while their 'Shore Acres' company No. 2, the one that will visit Logansport, has not made a dollar." The Wilson Case. In the matter of the indictment against Jumes !3. Wilson for embezzlement, Judge Chase granted a motion to correct 'the record so that it will show tlmt the case had been dropped by order of the then prosecuting attorney, John W. McGreevy. It will be remembered that James S. Wilson was once engaged in the milling and grain business here, and that when he tailed he was Indicted for embezzlement. It was alleged that he sold wheat at the mill belonging toJames Muratney,of Clinton township, for 11,200, and ap- proprlatad the money. Wilson Is now filling thu position of car tracer lor the 0. & 0. railroad compiny with headquarters at Ricnmond, V<t. He also has inn office at Cincinnati. Etls son-ln-iaw, George Stevens.ls general manager of the C & 0. railroad. Wilson |was tried only OQ the complaint of a farmer whose name is not now recalled, for embezzlement, and acquitted. Other indictments, including the one returned at the Instigation of Mr. Mummey, were then thought to have been nolle prjssed, but as the record was not clear on that point, Mr. Mummey's attorneys, Lalry & Mahouey and McConnell & Jenkines, opened the matter up iu the hope that t&ey. would be able to secure a re-arraignment of the ex- miller. It is said that Judge Chase'3 ruling does not dispose of the case. Notice. Maple Camp No. 2, Woodmen of the World.

LOUTHAIN, Chairman Dem. Gen. Com. M. A. LITTLE, Sec. Titles of Ward Schools. There is an agitation in some parts of the country In favor of changing the titles of ward schools from numbers to names. That is Instead of First, Second or Third ward, Grant, Jefferson, Lincoln and oo on. There is more in the Idea than might present itself at first thought. The schools could be christened with proper exercises indelibly impressing upon the mindis of the pupils the characteristics of the lives of the pa.triots a'ter whom they were named The plan need not be confined to the city, It could be made to take In every school in the country.

Flt»- Peter Maher has been systematically training under the direction of Peter Lowery and is in superior condition. He announces his readiness to flgbt Fiuslm- moDs or Corbett, but does not care to meet what he calls small fry. When Muddsn first brought Maher to this country, he set him against the hardest kind of game. He tackled Fitzsimmons as a starter. . Maher had barely entered the ring before Fitz swiped him on the jaw. knocking him to his knees instantly. Peter was as big a warrior then as he is now. Tho blow was; a stunner, but it failed to feaza tho young Irishman, He was up in a jiffy and oop- ped Fitz on the point of the jaw. It. was a stinginf; trip hammer 'smash, and Fitz reeled around the ring like a drunken roan. If Maher had followed up this blow, he would have defeated Fitz. Fate was against him, however. Luck was with Fitz, and the story of bow he punched Maher with his left until the Irishman finally became disgusted and quit is an old story. Shortly after this defeat Maber met Joe Goddard and was slaughtered again , losing in throe rounds. After this defeat it looked as though Peter would never do, but he plucsily turned in and whipped an army of second raters, which brought him to the front once again. His second fight with Fite followed. Circumstances operated against bis chances once again. He trained in the north, and when he went south for the battle the alkali in the Bio Grande basin nearly blinded him. Fits put him out for the second time with a punch. Yv'hen his eyes recovered, Peter met Choynski and knocked him out in a hard fought battle. Tom Sharkey next undertook to lower the Irishman's championship colors, but Maber turned the tables on him. When the police interfered, Peter was battering the sailor axound the ring in great shape. _ YOUNG HARRY WRIGHT. Bright Outlook For the Son of the Father of Baseball.
