MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR. A Forgery Alleged Against a Logansport Man. Fent Chronicle: John Sullivan, a farmer of Twelve Mile, Cass county, was iu the city yesterday and disclosed the particulars of a singular transaction in which the late I. N. Leedy, of Loffausport; appears in a questionable light. -Mr. Sullivan received a letter some days since from G. N, Moyer, the nurseryman of Laketon, \Vabash count)-, which is ns follows: "I presume you have been appised of the death of Mr. I. N. Leedy, of Logaiisport and that you are aware of your name securing a note for him to the amount of $110, due November 22, 189C. I .trust you will give the matter your attention when the note is dne. P. S. I also hold a note of $203.31 secured by yourself and R. R. Kerchner due April 27, 1S97." | Mr. Kerchner, who Is a neighbor o£ Mr. Sullivan also received a letter from Mr. Moyer, calling his attention to the note on which he was security jointly with Mr. Sullivan. These gentlemen both deny that they ever signed "the notes given by Leedy to Moyer. It appears that Leedy solicited them as surety, hut they refused to accommodate him. About the time the last note was dated I/eedy was at Twelve Mile nnd paid a visit to his brother, who lives about two and one-half miles northeast of the place, and it Is alleged that he then seemed despondent nnd remarked that he had a notion to kill himself. -Some months since, about the last of June or the first of July, Mr. L«edy suddenly died and it was supposed and so stated that his death resulted from an overdose, of morphine taken to allay rheumatism pain. Since the developments at Twelve Mile it is suspected that the overdose was taken with the Intent which it effected. The Logansport Humane Society (INCORPORATED.)

A NON-PARTISAN TALK Railway Hen Warming to the Good W.ork. Six Hundred Now Enrolled for a Good Dollar-One-Third are 'Democrats. Mr. Lucius B. Swift of Richmond a sound money Democrat, who voted for Cleveland four years ago, spoke for an hour and thirty-five minutes at the rink last night to more than a thousand people. In that time he spoke volumes for the cause of jrood money. The speaking was under the auspices of the Railroad Men's Sound Money club. That organization was present in force. It may be of interest to those who doubt the strength of this body of voters, to note that the membership of the club Is now 007, and further that 201 of these are Democrats. Mr. Swift was introduced by Fresi- lont Kearney, anil .said in part: "In Franco there Is more than .?3G per capita circulation. In Germany •here is something over $1S in circulation, per head. Yet prices in the two countries 1 are practically the same, except along the Hue, where the matter of tariff makes a slight dlffereaee. They say that the volume of money governs prices. There-has been a howl 'or more per capita money. The United 'States In 1S73 had ?lS"a'nd a fraction, per capita: Today sho has ?24 and some cents for each citizen. This s a raise of 25 per cent. But prices lave not. In that time nUsecl 25 per '.cut The amount of trade done by a nation governs the prices paid. Mexico s not so grqat a trading nntlon ns the "nlted States. Prices are much higher ; there than In this country, and yet Mexico has only .?5 per capita in money, • "The business of -the world is'done- m the credit system. During a panic, when every man wants his pay and all call at once, it is found that there Is not one-tenth the money needed to pay all. "A banker with ?50,000 can make, a business In a community by lending ind borrowing, equal to $200,000. Let one borrower fnJl for ?0,000 .anil the banker must call In his loans, .Why? Because the depositors in the bank, will lose confidence and call on him 'or payment. If depositors call . for, heir money they aj-e entitled to it.. "It is fnshionable.to denounce banks 'or cornering money. In a time like his the banker. In holding money, is doing only a solemn duty. The money, ic corners does not belong to him. Depositors may call on him for it at any time, ' .- -. •••'. "When we are assured that,a gold lollar will pay ?2 worth of debts, when we tumble to a silver .basis,, as. we will do the day Mr. Bryan Is elect-,, id, Is It not natural that.the man who las a gold dollar should hold it?. , "They say tbe lowering of silver. :aused the dropping of prices. I-have, never had it explained why two.of pur products dropped in price with silver, •rom 1873 to 1892, while.five .'of them raised in price during that time. .No, good argument can confine Itself, .to, wo or three products. The fact is that he amount of the world's product,of., wheat, of cotton and of silver .have, nany times multiplied. The product if wheat has tripled within the last- 'our years. The number of mouths hat eat wheat have not tripled in .the. ame time. Why, then, should the, irice not lower? . . .••..-;., "Coin uses seaboard prices, for wheat, 1,000 miles away from the vheat market. Teller quotes London prices. Indiana prices aro what the ndiana farmer is interested in. "Times are hard. Idle men are all >ver the Tnlted States. It was not. so n 1S92. The condition has been caused ly the threatened tampering .with .the financial system: , . 'The remedy proposed is'.the free, •oinage of silver at 10 to 1. .The real •atlo Is 32 to 1, but'it is proposed.by aw to make it 1C to 1. I want to :now who are the doctors. I have a, 1st here of twenty-two of them, whose, ggregate silver mine holdings amount^ o half a billion. The call for. free coinage did not start in Indiana, nor, n the Middle West, nor in the South, but In the Rocky Mountains. " " "^ 'They not only promise to raise the. liver dollar to a parity with',the gold, lollar, but they also, say they will.go down to Mexico, take the'dollar of. that! ountry and make it'worth 100 cents.

If they succeed in rals'iiig'-'Kllvor to a parity, the silver mine "owners-will grow enormously rich. What they claim is not true. •I believe the government made a jnistnke. when it went, from a gold basis-and -.issued paper money during the war, for then the heresies on the question-of money were started. The Confederate States'made the mistake, and lnstend"of ..the 'women and slaves at 'lomei raising the provisions to supply fhe: needs of the soldiers, :is they would bad there.been a chance of payment in jood; money, the men starved iu the ields that, might *mve fed them. The paper money of the South was worth- ,uss, ami it required $2,700 of it to buy in -outside suit of clothes. One year after the passage of the act: of '.J.S'S,. before the price of silver began to. fall, Senators Jones aryi Stewart declared In favor of a gold stand- mi, saying that, the worklngman ihould be paid In the same money that he, government paid its debts in; that t wiiB : right to pay the National debts p. gold,-to-sustain the National honor. "For fourteen years we tried to boost il]y,eV[to,par..Wheh we finished buying J,Oo6,QOO-<^mces a. month, the silver lollar;-was worth SI cents.

How will free coinage add to the value of a silver dollar? WESTSIDE. It will not. The government when it stamps a silver dollar under free coinage has no further act to perform to make it circulate. It does not promise to redeem it. It turns it loose to let it make Its own way in the world: The stamp only shows that it was weighed and has so much silver in it and It, must do the rest. It must travel on Its owu responsibility. The government may make it legal tender, but that simply means that it must be tak- n at wlmt Its purchasing power Is. Thus if it is worth 173 cents and I loan it at that under tbe guise of a dollar I must take it back at a dollar, whJle all the time It Is only doing 53 cents worth of work. Coining does not add to its .value. Making It legal tender does not add to its value. What will? Only supply and demand. In other words it travels simply as bullion, and to call It a dollar now wJien supply and demand makes it worth 53 cents is in violation of the law itself that is depended upon to give it increased value.

The funeral of the young m.in, Harry Crawford, son of John Crawford, of Bethlehem township, was hold yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock from the Bethlehem M, E.- church. The deceased who was twenty-one years old; died Friday, and it was said his death was due to a severe fright given him the night before by several youths, who conducted him to a. melon patch, fired a gun and then ran. It is said that the young man ran the entire distance to his home, falling- several time* en route, that he was taken ill immediately, seemed deranged, and never recovered. He was hurt internally- The boys who played the joke are remorseful but withou tavail. KOKOMO CAMPERS. The Kokomo "Outing' 1 club passed through.this city yesterday en route from Cedar. Lake, -where they have been.camping for the last tivo weeks, to their homes at Kokomo. The boys were all thoroughly tanned nnd dJQ wore broad rimmed straw hats sucfc as are -worn in hay fields- As they passed through the city they gave their yell and attracted much attention, ffn the party were Leslie Lewis, George . Rciff, Frank Bright, Ray Woods, Percy Leach, Lawrence Strode, Dee Wimmct, Andy Kearns, Martin Suyder an!! "Dock" Phillips, who acted as cook rind chaperone. They camped a. short distance from the cily last night au<S -•will start for their nome-agaiu this morning. • Leave the money asitis—It'i: only a Medium of exchange. Th* changing of it will not make more business or times better. Why should it?. How can you •maV* more actual business by calling six inches a foot, or, if -silver would rise to par, by calling a foota foot? Supply anddemanS make business. What difference can it make in the demand and supply if vou change the medium of exchange? You can ruin business by making the Medium of exchange doubtful, as free silver would do, but you cannot hejf) it that way. BUSINESS CHANGE. AV. T. Giffe has' sold his book store to C. AV. Grave* and will devote aJJ his time to the Home Music Journal. Mr. Graves takes possesion this morning 'and will continue the business at the same stand. NOTICE-LAST OALL.
