Wayne T. P. A'a Have Their Hall Draped in Mourning, The boys of Tost F,, T. P. A., foe] sorry for the boys of Post A,, Ft. Wayne, but really; they brought It nil on • themselves. The pnpers of Ft. Wayne boasted In tills vain-glorious style on Saturday preceding tee game: "A few days ago the Logansport traveling salesman, just to show that they wouldn't stand any bantering, accept ed the challenge of the Ft. Wayno drummers to piny a game of base ball. The game is in progress tills afternoon nnd the recent contest between the policemen and the Jolly Sixty-five facle^ into insignificance beside the exhibition. It was a fatal mistake on the part of Logansport's jolly knights of the grip but they can console themselves upon the pointers they are getting from our champion knights of the grip in today's game." And after the game was plnyed, this Is what they said about It: "The rooms of Post A., T .P. A., were draped In mourning lost night Down at Lognnsport there was good cheer and festivity In the quarters of Post F. for the .brnt.es by the grassy banks of the Wabash had gone home with gory scalp locks dangling to their belts. The way they did It Is something of a mystery, and the local knights of the grip are still making explanations. Ed Muhler pitched for the locals and held the visitors down to 20 hits. Men. were going round the bases all the .time nnd sometimes fell over each other in getting to home plate. When seven Innings hud been played, and Ft. Wayne thought she had the game, the scorer announced that Abe Minskc had only made three runs, instead of seventeen, as alleged and ,the game went to Logansport." A sort of before and'after taking, ns it were. The boys of Post A. will have an opportunity to recover their lost, laurel's, or make It a crown of thorns, when they again meet the Post F. boys In this city, two T$sks from next Saturday. . "^ ARE ENCOURAGED. Republican Speakers Have Good and Respectful Crowds. Republican speakers are having no trouble In getting the people to conie out and hear their speeches. This campaign, though It has but scarcely begun, Is one of the best for the speakers In years. A public speaker, if he sees a house full of people, can do himself and his subject Justice, whereas a small crowd chills the trdor. At Royal Center Saturday night W. T. Wilson spoke in the open air, the hall not being large enough to hold the crowd of people who wanted to hear the financial question discussed from a sound money standpoint. Mr. Wilson made a splendid speech, nnd was heartily applauded. There were more than two hundred present, more than half .of whom must have been Democrats, Populists and Prohibitionists, or who have formerly belonged to these parties. A McKinley club of over forty members was organized, with the following corps of officers: President—George H/ GIse. . Vice President—Thomas Vernon. v Secretary—Frank Fouts. . Treasurer-John W. KIstler. The dram corps and about twenty Republicans from this city accompanied the speaker. • The Burnettsvllle Baptist Sunday school will hold a picnic In V. <B.

A CLUB ORGANIZED Rousing Speech by Ed Kearney, and a Love Feast. Three Hundred Signatures—The' Pharos Given Some Hot L Shot by a Railroader ., The meeting at the rink last night servjwl to encourage and uplift those who are struggling for the .cause .of sound money In Cass'county. The disciples of free silver and.debased money have corresponding reason for feeling depreciated this morning. There were more than one thousand people In the rink, nnd all stayed until the last word had been spoken. Ed, F. Kearney was the speaker of the evening, nud after his election ns presi Ulent of the Railroad Men's club hq spoke for sound money from the stand-! point of a sound money Democrat. His; points wore well made, clear cut, .and the enthusiasm they . caused' showed 1 that his hearers were appreciative. The crowd was one that any orator would; have been pjeajpsf'to address. Not onlyi was It In sympathy with tho causejl but its feelings were not suppressed; And. there was occasion for cheering; for the remarks of Mr. Kearney place| him well up In the list of Cass county; campaign speakers for sound money.; Mr. Kearney will be heard from againJ The first thing done at the big meeting was the organization of the club.' The officers chosen were as follows: \ 'President—E. F. Kearney. '] : ;' First VIce-President—H. S. Coats. ' ". Second Vice-President—J. .T. Uannon, Third Vlce-rresident—W. H. Gifford| : Secretary and Treasurer—A. F.Hock- enbenmer. The pext meeting of the club will be,; held : on the cnll of the president, and' the rink will be the place of meeting." In accepting the honor tendered him, President Ed Kearney • said in substance: • . "My Fellow Citizens: I thank you' for the honor yon have done me. I see In your presence here tonight an argument for the cause .of sound money. I wish to thank the many business men. and other citizens present for their attendance. In their presence and inter- est.I see that they are'alive to the fact that the Interests of the railroad men of Logansport are the Interests of all the citizens here. There has been a rumor circulated and an Insinuation appeared in'a Lo- gnnsport paper, that we were being coerced Into taking up this movement. There have been many methods of coercion since civilization began, but the most contemptible method to my mind Is that of the man with the'cowardly heart, who, hidden behind the columns of a public newspaper, seeks 'to intimidate the Independent American citizen. "I have always been a sound money Democrat. I absolutely refuse to become a Populist. I am not alone"; 'Tiie Independent vote will be targe. T'hls year I shall vote the Republican ticket,. National, State, Congressional and Legislative. ' ' ' " "I will give you, briefly, a history 'of the money of the ,Unlted States, 1p 1792, Madison, the first Secretary''of the Treasury! and that 'Father'of De ; mocracy,' • Thomas Jefferson,, recommended a ratio upon which gold anil silver wore, to be coined. They'went abroad into the markets, of the, world to secure It. And they placed "it" at abput 15 to 1, That'was tlie commercial ratio. This ratio prevailed until 1800, when it was found that, the ratio was not correct. Silver dollars were being melted down and sold as bullloni the silver being worth more than, a dollar at the-ratio of 15 to 1. Thomas Jefferson ordered the coinage of silver dollars stopped,- and no ' more ..were coined . until 1834, when, a law',,waa passed for the further .coinage of sll- .ver dollars at the ratio.of 16 to : l..This. ratio was also, soon found to be Incorrect.

Other messages were also read,' and jiU'wewy-received'with cheers. . .Another feature of the after meeting wns the, rending, by.Dewltt C, Justice, of :>. personal letter from Charles Watts of Plttsburg. The communlcntion is of deep interest to workingmen and especially to the railroad men. The letter is as follows: Pittslmrp, Pa., Aug. 13.1800. ; . "Friend Justice: I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 10th lust, and in reply have to sny that the bonded indebtedness of the Panhandle is ,<47.021,000, the greater part of which, together with the interest, is payable in gold. The .innunl fixed; charges are about $2,080,000, principally payable in gold. The dividends dc : '. clared during the past five years from 1891 to 1895 inclusive, were ns follows: 1801,3 per cent.; 1892, 4 per cent; 1893, 4 per cent; 1S04, 2 per cent.; nnd 1895, 'nit'. The average net annual revenue applicable to the payment of fixed chnrges for the last five years, 1891. to 1895, Inclusive, was ,$3,865,000. "It will be seen, therefore that in the event of the success of the Demo-Pop candidates, and gold reaching a premium of 170, this company would be unable to meet the interest,, and would be compelled to go Into bankruptcy. During the war, gold went to a proSS? urn of nearly 300, and It is thought by. able financiers of both the great political parties that that rate'of gold would again be reached. ' I do not think that any additional statistical Information is needed to convince every reasonable intelligent Panhandle workman that it Is to his Interest to vote for McKinley/ nnd sound money. "Yours Truly, "CHAS. WATTS." After the reading of this convincing letter, several halting Democrats stepped forward determinedly and: placed their names to the list, swelling' It from 249 to 270 in a few moments. : The Independent Democrats were cheered as they subscribed themselves to the sound money document. The new club Is to be a moving power Jn the campaign now on. ' . As a proper wind-up of the evening's work, the following message to the. Advaace Agent of Prosperity was written, and placed In a committee's hands'to be transmitted to .William McKinley: "Hon. William "• Canton, Ohio: "The railroad, men of the city, of Lo- gnnsport, Ind., have Just organized a Sound Money club, three hundred strong. Many of them former Democrats.
