Owing to circumstances over which we have no control the 49lh anniversary of the departure of the Case Co. Volunteers to the Mexican war on Juno 8, 1846, -will be indefinitely postponed. Walt for the 50tb anniversary June 8_ 1896. There were too few of the old veterani left to undertake the guarantee required of To the Honorable Jfayor, and members of the Common CouoclJ: Gentlemen:—We, the undersigned electric light committee make to you the following report of the coat of construction, etc., of the city electric light plant. The contract for the construction of this work, and the erection of the plant was made and carried to com* pletlon by the special electric light committee, this committee having been created by the council for this special purpose. Since tbe creation of the electric light department the present permanent committee has been operating the works. There were many difficulties In the' way of constructing a plant to be owned by the city, by reason of the fact that the city's indebtedness exceeded the two per cent, constitutional limit. Therefore, this enterprise, Involving an outlay of sixty thousand dollars, must be carried out without Increasing- the city's bonded indebtedness. 'L'he finance committee having this enterprise in view, made in the fall of 1893 a. levy that brought into the treasury $10.000. The scheme of filling ID the old mill race and laying out the strip of ground between Sixth and Eighth streets, and between Race street and the Eel river into lots, was carried out. These lots were sold rapidly, and brought into the electric, light fund $5,300. With this fund as a basis, we were enabled to mako a contract with the Standard Electric company of Chicago, Illinois, for the electrical apparatus, engines and boilers. The engines, bollore and dynamos were to have a capacity of one hundred and eighty (180) arc ' lights. and twenty-four hundred (2.400) incandescent light, the former of two thousand (2,000) candle power for street lights, and the laiter Of sixteen (16) candle power. The Standard company's contract WBB exclusive of the building and water power. This plant was leaeed to the city ai an annual rental of twelve thousand dollars ($12,000) with the stipulation In their contract, when the city shall have paid them the sum of thirty.five thousand, eight hundred and fifty dol. lars ((35,850) they would, for tbe further payment of one dollar ($1) turn over to the city the entire plant. .: Our contract with the Standard Electric company binds the city to make a special levy to meet this annual payment. That the city had tbe power to put In her own • plant was denied by the Logansport Electric Light and Power . company, and the city waa brought into court by injunction proceedloga, this company seeking- to enjoin the city from constructing this plant. Judge D. B. McCon. noil, upon a hearing of the case, dissolved the temporary injunction, and the special electric light committee proceeded with the work. The special electric light committee, after advertising for bids, contracted with John E. Barnes & Sona (they being tbe lowest bidders) for the construction of the electric light building, boiler house, water wheel flume end wheel pit, and with William Dolan & Co, (they being the lowest bidders) for five water wheels, and the neces»ary shafting, bridge trees, gearing and pulleys to connect wheels with^the dvnamos. The contract with the Standard Electric companj amounted to 435,840 00 JobnE Barnes t Sons, oa buildings, water wheel tltune and wheel. pit 13,200 00 John £ Barnes & Sons, on djnamo, engine and boiler foundations 1,123 00 John E.

Including work In race, _,_....|SS,513 ei We have still 'an account unsettled, for • >extra»" with the Standard Electric company amounting |544,49. Tbls we hope to materially reduce. Nor have we 'been able to effect a settlement with the architect. There has been paid on the plant in cash the sum of $22,913.00, over one third it* coat The council waa compelled by reason of the high price paidJor street lighting, and tbe fact •that a contract for at least one-third mprelighti than we bad must soon be entered into, Involving an annual outlay of . twelve to fourteen thousand dollars,' to devise some scheme by which a^plant could be put in and become 'the property of the city. We congratulate the council and through them the people, that this has been done. Under the old system of street lighting, growing as our city is, in a period of ten years, at least one hundred and thirty thousand dollars would be paid out for street lighting, and the city, at the end of this time, have nothicg. The city, owning her own electric light plant, will have tbe streets lit as no private corporation would ever light them, and practically no money will be taken from the public treasury. It is tbe expectation of this committee that before two years rolls around, the city will be serving out the electric current to supply over five thousand Incandescent lights. The Income from this service, together with the commercial aro lighting, will bring In a revenue more than sufficient to pay the entire running expenses of the plant and maintenance. Not only this, but at the same time the business houses and private residences of our citizens will be well lighted, and at a rate as low as or lower than is offered in any: city in America, similarly situated to Logansport. To thecltlzene: Thle plant Is yours. Each one of you ia a stockholder in this enterprise. If you have the in. terests of Logansport at heart show It by giving to this movement towards municipal ownership your patronage. It Is with you to make of It a suocees or a failure. See to it that success crowns this movement. S. B. BOYEK "1 OEORGE HAIGH JOSEPH KENNET [-Com. WM. H. REISER j M. C. WAKE, j Kxcnnlou to Nonlh Ilend.

ItJwlU pay you to be particular'as to whose seeds you bay. „ We are now in the market with a fall line of Lanareth's .seeds for the season of 1895, and I wish to say to the gardeners and others nsinf? seeds, that while Landretb's seeds may be a little higher price then some others they are always fresh, clean and true to name, and as we handle no other seeds except those grown by Landretb. Si Sons of Philadelphia our customers may rely on (jetting 1 nothing but the very best. I believe that th« cost of the seeds is nothing compared to the crop, and when a person has the trouble to put ont a garden, he should use nothing but the very best, We handled Landreth's seeds for four years and have never heard a single complaint; in fact, our customers unhesitatingly pronounce them perfect in ever particular, and as an evidence of this fact, we have almost the entire trade of all the gardeners around Logansport as well as many from a distance. Our trade has increased on this particular line of goods more than tenfold since we have been in the business? We also have a full line of garden tools and field seeds Remember that tbe firm of Landreth & Sons has been 115 yean in the occupation of seed growing. George Harrison. 617, 623 Broadway.
