"Been arguin' politics, eh?" And he turned to his docket and made out the customary charge of assault and battery and entered up a fine 1 of. $0.00. "Want's tho name?" he asked, his pen poised halfway to the page and dripping ink. "Oh, nuy old name will answer?" was the answer. 'Tut it John Doe." And "John Doe" went down on the docket. The story of the trouble which caused the freo payment of a fine by the stranger is told by E. B. Over- toiner, who witnessed the affair. Mr. Ovcrshincr was sitting in the office of Ferd Borges, the proprietor of the Eel •Kiver avenue livery barn, when Oscai; Welty of Kokomo entered -and asked to speak to Mr. Borges on business:! Mr. Welty presented a bill from the tti-ra of Diraock & Shade, of Kokomo,requesting payment from Mr. Borges. Just what the latter said to cause offense the witness of. the affair could' not say, but words passed between the two, and Welty struck Borges as tho 'Boston.

Tho manager of tho Boston Lights team says hi.s team is not in any city league, whereas the promoters of (he scheme formulated a schedule in which that club was given a part in the four- cornered league. Hank Guimip, who nanagcs the Boston Lights, snys that tho club will bo strengthened by the addition of a number of good local )laycrs, and will play Sunday games it the park, independent of any other club or clubs. This may not Interfere vith the league arrangement, however, as there are more than' four clubs in tho city, not counting the Boston .Lights. That club is much too strong ; for any of tho clubs which were named as being in the league, and would undoubtedly have pulled, down tho pennant. Let the league go on and if the Boston Lights want to play independent ball, let them do so. BUT TWO G-S.MES PLAYED.

Eastern clubs are so anxious to see an Eastern club win as to give them games, the Cin- cinnatis and Clevelands might as well throw up right now, for tliere are none of the Western clubs that are-likely to have enlargement of tho heart and give cither of the Western leaders any advantage in that way. There is a just kick coming to the West in the matter of the arrangement of the playing schedule, and it Is likely.to result In a complete revision next year. Just why the Eastern clubs should always have the privilege of finishing the season on their own grounds Is hot apparent, 1 •'though Jt is possible President Kick Young could answer. Anyhow, there 'will be a strong protest against such an arrangement the coming season. Following are the scores of the games yesterday: At Philadelphia—Baltimore"0, Phila dclphia 2.

See ad. Now please read It, his issue only. The Eepublicans will open the campaign in every county in the State next Saturday evening. Theodore Shockney of Union City, and a candidate before the State committee for the nomination of Governor will speak at the rink at S o'clock p, m. on ab.ove date. While the Interests of every Individual and every class of men are the inter-' ests of all, and one class.of men ought, not to be arrayed against any other, for all are necessary yet Mr. .Shockney has been the especial friend of railroad and laboring men and they should turn out and hear him. • • The railroad men's club was a matter of general talk yesterday. If was not supposed that .a club of 270 members could be so quickly organized. And when it was known that over one-third of the signers were former Democrats the results were more than ever a matter of congratulation. Tho success of sound money depends upon the intelligence of tho community and the willingness to forget party prejudices. The railroad men have shown themselves citizens worthy of honor and respect. But how about the Pharos? It may be good politics, it ma.y be wise from a business standpoint; for the Pharos to abandon its principles, its honor and its precepts in the hope of temporary gain and accuse those who remain steadfast and firm, of party treachery, but it does not seem so. The Pharos has been for sound money for a quarter of a century. It knows that iho Republican money plank is honest, sound and patriotic, rt knows that the Chicago money plank is un-Demoeratic, dishonest and revolutionary. It knows that no nation, civilized or uncivilized, ever proposed bimetallism except at the existing bullion ratio which is now 31'to 1. And yet it insults and belittles the railroad men because they have been true to Pharos teachings while it lias sold out, body and soul. .Silver was practically demonetized from the formation of tho L 7 uited States. Jefferson demonetized it and Jackson demonetized it. In 1SG1 specie payment ceased. It was resumed in ,1879. Since its resumption ?COO,000,000 of silver has been coined—by Republicans. It was never actually used as money before. It has been used since because it is practically redeemable in gold. The Pharos says: good'times will not "come again till silver is rcmonetized. Again? Why did they exist before without silver coin? It is nonsense to argue that the destruction of every industry will make times good. It may starve enough men to make workingmen scarce but will that make good times? Will it make times better for the Panhandle employes to ruin their employers' n'nd bankrupt the road? The employers have struggled through the depression of the last two years. There have been reductions In the forces and in the. hours of labor.

Henry Careless of New York, organizer of the Socialist Labor party, will speak tonight at the corner of Fifth street and Broadway. 1 : SHOCKNEY - AT - THE RINK Saturday Night. How Is-it going to better things by making them worse? How are you going to save a starving man by cutting off what little food he is able to procure? Nobody believes in this. It is only the demagogue who talks it. It is only -the newspaper that Is willing to do anything for* party gain that will talk of "short hours," knowing that what It advocates will make them shorter. The Pharos would willingly urge every Panhandle employe to do that which it'knows would take all employment from him if by s,o doing it could carry the county for Bryan. The railroad men are honest and loyal in their efforts to restore prosperous times. The Democrats among them are consistent and honorable in sticking to sound money. It is a vital consideration. It is the plank.iu the platform that distinguished Democrats from Populists four years ago. All honor to the Democrats who have remained true'to their party. Sharae on the Pharos and its followers who have sold out. THE TENTED SHOWS: Robinson and Franklin's Circus Enjoyed by Good Crowds. Another circus day has gone, and those who celebrated the visit of the big'amusement caravan have nothing but pleasant memories of the entertainment and its managers. Everything connected with the circus outfit of Itobinson, and the Franklin Bros.', is clean and genuine. It is seldom a circus is conducted more quietly ov acceptably. The big crowds were handled rapidly and without trouble. Tho performances, afternoon and night, were up to the best 50-cent exhibitions, and this one was but-a.quarter, the price having recently'been lowered in view of the hard times amoug the circus loving people. In all the dcpart- mcnts_that have made circuses popular, the combination that' tented here yesterday was more than up to predictions. '.'•'. Many of the novel features were enthusiastically cheered. There were really funny clowns, good .music, and the show could be seen. It was not like so many of the shows of today, drawn out for time killing purposes, until it became monotonous,, but was in that respect, and all others, very satisfactory to those who gave their good money to know. The attendance at the evening performance was about 2,800, and in tho afternoon almost as many saw the performance. and each picked up a pair of shoes and walked away. They were observed by a bystander, who informed the clerks at the store', and Officer Klcckner was notified. He followed the two men and came upon them near the corner of Market and Fifth, where they stopped to change foot gear. The officer gave chase but the hoboes were too swift for him and he lost them. He threw liis club and hit one of them in the head, knocking him down, but the blow was not sufficient to put the fellow out of the business and he scrambled to his feet and ran away.

New Ideas. IX FINE FOOT WEAR—THE COINS TOES THE RAGE. STOLE FOOT WEAR. Yesterday evening, just before closing time, two men stopped in front of Otto Kraus's store on Fourth street and gaze longingly at the display. of shoes arranged on a table on the sidewalk. They had not tarried long when their desire overcome their scruples The dollar too. tho half-dollar toe, the quarter toe and the ten cent toe are some of the ideas in fine shoes. The above mentioned lasts are very popular for the coming season and why shouldn't they be? Any thing connected with silver or gold at present must be popular. These slices, whlcli are the latest fall styles and at<^.to be found at Pilling's .shoe house, are b_et- ter than 16 to 1 or a gold standardV A very small amount of either gold or silver will take a pair of them and then you arc sure of a double standard. For Pilling's shoes arc. a standard and it takes two to the pair, The new style shoes are quite different from the old pointed toes that have been on sale the past two years. They still retain , that beautiful long drawn-out effect but are decidedly round toe'instead of point. Pilling has a complete line of • these goods. Notice window.
