A smart crook got the .better of an unsophisticated silver man at Hammond the other day. The crook bought a glass of beer and tendered a gold dollar in payment. "How's this" the bartender ashed. "Well the free silver law has been passed, you know," the crook answered, "and gold dollars are worth sixteen silver dollars." The bar• tender gave him $15.05 in change. And thus the campaign of education o£ the silver!tcs goes merrily on, ••.•••••, solely of the financial question and its relation to the prosperity attained by this most wonderful combination of the peoples of the whole world, a cosmopolitan nation in fact, was a wonderful bit of pastel work in prose, a picture-of the future which this nation Is destined to fulfill wherein words wen; colors laid on with the consummate skill of the master hand in predicting the most glorious of futures for a race of superior Intellectual endowments. ./•Touching the money question, Mr. Poscy said that, if the history of tlio money of our country were given a careful study, it would be found that so far from the Democratic party having been the friend of silver, the laws passed by that party when in power -have proved that that party has invariably been the one which has en- actod laws most disastrous to the maintenance of the stability of that 'metal. He made a clear and Intelligible statement regarding the various "stops of financial legislation of the government of thc'L'ulted States from the birth of that government to tJic present time, showing wherein the law of commercial relation of values had never been ignored by financial legislators, but that from the time of Hamilton and Jefferson, through more than half a century of Democratic rule, this commercial value of gold and silver had been recognized as the true basis on which to calculate the coinage value of the two metals. He asserted with truth, that until the Republican party gained control of the reins of government, there had been less than cue hundredth part of the silver dollars now in existence, coined and circulated as money. His peroration was an appeal to the intelligence of the American people, a people who, he said, are destined to lead all the nations of the world Into the higbctvplauc of intellectual and moral development, which the plan of creation 'has destined to be evolved from the chaos of the past until mankind has reached the perfection of existence, the perfect life. In introducing the speaker, Dr. J. Z. Powell said that though his name was Poscy,. the people would find him a veritable bouquet, and the statement was literally true, His speech from the beginning to end.was practically a profound.lecture, in which language made poesy of fact. At the conclusion of Mr. Posey's .speech the Hon. W. S. Haggard, the Republican candidate for I/lcutcnant- Govornor, was introduced, and spoke briefly, excusing himself from a more •-extended 'talk on account of hoarse-ness. The Hon. Hiram Browulec. whose persuasive eloquence will again bo heard In this rlty before the campaign closes, spoko briefly and was vociferously applauded. There were loud calls for Mr. Owen, wUo. sat upon the platform with the other speakers, and he responded in a brief talk ,of: SOUND MONEY GK11MANS.

Th<? people win) are reading and thinking are beginning to realize what a fatal plunge they are asked to take when they are asked to vote for Bryan and free silver. Some of the results of a Bryan victory tire thus forcibly set forth by the Philadelphia Press. '"If Bryan were elected -1,875.000 'savings 'bank depositors with $1.810,000 of deposits, 1,800,000 holders of building association shares with ' r $SOO,000.000 of loans, fv 70" 303 regular life insurance policies' with $5,500,000,000 of insur •nice and 3,038.815 members In assessment companies with $7.482,000,000 of insurance will .find their investments-payable in silver dollars worth half the value of g»'d dollars, iu which they are now paid.

For years mortgages and contracts have specifically demanded old, and every debtor who has received a loan on this basis-as is true f a large share of western loans- must provide i?2 where he has hitherto provided ?1. for the dollars he will receive for his labor, his products or his profits will 'be paid in' 00-cent sil- dollors-it Bryan wore elected. "If Bryan were elected the currency In circulation today, $1,000,000,000 would shrink to ?500,000,000 at a blow. All the gold in circulation, in all July 1st $600,000,000, would instantly disappear and be at a premium of 200. The remainder of the currency, $1,100,000,000 silver and paper in all its forms would lose half Its value and shrink to $500,000,000.

James Dull, an aged citizen who resides south of .this city a few miles, made an unsuccessful attempt at suicide Wednesday noon by cutting his throat. Mr. Dull is eighty-seven years old and one of the most prominent residents in his community. He has had poor health for sonic time past, and on one occasion threatened to take his life. Since tha.t time ho has been watched very closely by his family .and friends. Wednesday he and Mrs. Dull were alone at home. Mr. Dull sat in the yard whittling, when, without warning, he turned the pocket knife upon himself, striking his throat and nearly severing the Jugular vein. It Is 'thought his injuries may prove fatal owing to his ago, although there is' a slight chance for his recovery. HARRY FRANK, 314 Fourth Street. WOOD That is What "Buzzsaw" Burkhart Would Have Free Coinage of. "Buz/saw" Burkhart has been converted. But: he has been converted the other way. After converting the Pharos to free silver he has gone a step farther. He is in favor of the free coinage, of wood. "If 53 cents worth of silver will make a dollar," he asks, "why will not a cent's worth of wood make a dollar? If the government stamp will add 47 cents to silver why will it not add 09 cents to wood? Why Should not saw dust be as valuable as gold dust? All it needs is the government stamp. I have enough saw lowgs at my mill to malic mouey plenty. Any man can pick up enough drift wood in the river to be wealthy in a few minutes. All a dry goods man would have to do to pay for his goods would be to send an empty store box to tbe mint and have it coined. A cord of wood costs about four dollars. Von could have it coined into a million dollars and there yon are. If you had it sawed up aud gave the poor man who sawed it the saw dust he would not have to work the rest of his life. Tree tops, old boards, shingles, base ball bats, fence pickets, cross ties, weather boarding, splinters, toothpicks any old wooden thing could be coined into mouey. All it needs is the government stamp. If the government has not time to stamp all this money let it send a stamp to all postmasters and authorize them to use ft. There is no use having money scarce when it can be made so easily. Why, the poor washwoman could, have her tub coined aud be wealthy. 1 am against the free coinage of silver. Silver costs too much. Let: us have free coinage of wood. If I was running this government this is what I 'wood' do." 'Prof. Fred' N. .Tobnson of Seymour, Ind., is a guest of his parents, Mr. and Mrs'. W. D.

Of the change in the Secretary of State's office the Indianapolis Journal says: "W. S. Wright, of Logausport, yesterday resigned his position as Deputy Secretary 'of State, and was succeeded by R. A. Brown, of Franklin. Mr. Wright's resignation was necessitated by the fact that he has recently purchased the interest of his-partners in the Logansport Journal, and the management, of the paper requires his entire time. During his occupancy of the office ho has made a great many friends here and throughout the State, and has proved very efficient in his position. His successor, Mr. Brown was clerk of the last House of Representatives, and made an extensive acquaintance throughout the State in ISO*, when he was a candidate for the nomination for Clerk of the Supreme court. For many years he was the editor of the Franklin Republican, but sold the paper a few months ago.
