It Is a unlversa} rule tha't the party challenged shalj name the time, place, conditions and weapons, and this Mr. Kearney didj But he was generous. He gave Mr,. Gaiter the opening and close, gave tiinj the best of it all around. Mr. Carte^ backs out of the embarrassment by thij following letter: .Logansport, Ind., Sept. 3, 1S90: Dr. J. Z. Powell, , ' " :| Dear Sir: On August 2lst, 1800, 1; challenged Mr. E. F. Kearney to iji Joint discussion of the money question; of which the free and unlimited coin} age of silver lit the ratio of 1C to 1 is a| part, referring to the settlement of. the, date of the meeting and division of| time, to yourself for Mr. Kearneyi and B. F. Louthaln for me. After a few days had elapsed, you failing tq: confer with Mr. Louthain, he requested; by letter a conference with yourself: to make the necessary arrangements: for the debate. When to my surprise'; instead of you two cbmmitteemen con-j fen-ing and Jointly arranging for the,| debate, you, as Mr. Kearney's represen-; tative, notified Mr. Louthain and myself by letter tha.t my challenge would, be accepted on the following conditions; to-wlt: ' ' ; First. The discussion' to be limited! to the question, "Should the United; States adopt the free and unlimited! Read Circular, 1 Left at Your House New Cloitil otto Kraus. New Shoes Otto Kraus. Hats otto Kraus New Furnishings. Otto Kraus coinage of sliver at the ratio of 1C to !• In/lm-inn/lran*- nf 'inf ntll0r n/1 tiOTl?' 1 ' Independent of any otlier nation? Second. -Mr. Koarney to take thcj negative, I to take the affirmative side; of the question. Now, I submit to youi: and tlie people of Logansport that the^ free and unlimited coinage of silver -by,.the United ' States, independent ' ofii other nations, is an inflnitesmal part of!; the money question, especially the partj that pertains to other nations. Now l! ask, Is this a fair acceptance of my; challenge? . • • ',...! Third. I to open the disciiss'lon''iri : 'an* To you, Doctor, and the public, my "reason for wanting to meet Air. Kear iiey In debate, was to lay before the working people the monetary laws tha have been enacted in the last thirty 'years, which have reduced us as a pco pie to the deplorable condition, we are BOW in. And, as a working nvan, to point to other working men the remedy, as seen by the great American Federation of Labor, which througl Its leadership has been guarding the destiny of the toilers of this land- foi years; while the money lenders anc large combinations of capital, like the railroad syndicates (all favorable to the "gold standard) have been fighting -labor, and would, were it not for our organization, have us, even now, reduced to a condition as bad or worse than prevails'In European countrTes. This, then, is the reason I can not have tlie debate narrowed to one small part of the. money question, but must dis- cuss'It in its entirety; and while I may not have the pleasure, judging from the ultimatum you have Just given me of measuring tongues with Mr. Kearney in joint debate./yet I will in the near future answer his rink speech and ta.lk on the great burning issue of the day, "The Money Question.'' To recapitulate, It seems to me. Doctor, that as Mr. Kearney is the challenged party, you have, as you say, taken the responsibility to cnange the 'subject of debate, set the time for debate and place a Moderator over us, with unheard of arbitrary power, and /have been so kind as to actually dictate tb'me when I may and may not Introduce new argument. What if I had challenged Mr. Kearney to a duel Instead of a joint discussion and he had named you as his second, your logic bjf-reason regarding the duel, were it parallel, with, your assumption of pow- 'cV '#vcr tli'e debate, would give to Mr. hour's speech; Mr. Kearney to follow!; Kearney a gatling gun as his weapon in a speech of an hour and fifteen min-'; 'ofoffense and defense, while to mo 1 you would give for offense and defense utes; I to reply in fifteen minutes, hut? to Introduce no new argument in clos-J ins. Again I submit to you and thej citizens of Logansport that while I] have no especial objections to the wayjj you have divided the time, yet I ask, Is" It fair to not allow me to introduce any argument I see fit to controvert my opponent's statements? If it is. of what especial advantage is the fifteen,- minutes to me In in the closing other than to thrash over old straw. Fourth. That Mr. C..O. .Fenton, the Prohibition editor, shall net as Moderator, whose duty it shall be to preserve. order and to call each speaker to, order, if in his judgment he Is not 'speaking to the question. Again T submit that whilst I am not as old as you, yet in my thirty-three years of .life : I have heard many, joint political. 'debates, but have the first one to hear where the Moderator ever exercised any power other than to call the time for each of the contestants to open and close his speech and preserve-order, and while I believe Mr. Fenton would be governed by his judgment and In so far as his judgment'was not at fault, be absolutely fair in his decisions, yet precedent has always in joint political debate allowed the speakers to exercise their own judgment as to the argument they advanced, -because, •a'popgun. Truly yours, C. E. CARTER. -SCHOOL BOY,, Ought to Go Back to School—His 1 Fallacy Exposed. .Leave the money as it is—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 make more actual business by calling six inches a foot, or, if silver would rise to par, by calling a footafoot? Supply and demand make business. What difference can it make in the demand and supply if voUg^fnge the medium of exchange? You can ruin business^ by making the Medium of exchange doubtful, as free silver would do, but you cannot help it that way. Special sale for two weeks,on boys' and children's school suits. Parents should not miss these bargains.—J. D. Ferguson & Jenks, 322 Market street. in the final analysis the audience-are the moderators. Therefore, under no' consideration could I cast precedent aside and leave to a. Moderator any such arbitrary power. v Fifth. That neither party shall be interrupted by the other or; by any person in the audience while speaking, which of course I readily agree to. Again I submit to you and the pco'pie" of Logansport that because I ; ;was the party to issue the challenge to Mr. Kearney, docs this debar my representative, Mr. Louthaln, and myself from any voice in the preliminaries leading, to' the debate, as' you assume, or .can;, the citizens of Logansport by any fair manner of reasoning think I would- .yield to my opponent' and his represen- .tatlve the right to'narrow my original, challenge for a discussion of, whether 1 this, nation can coin' silver independent, of other.countries? '. 1 -think.'not,- and am willing to'accept my,verdict from my fellow townsmen. Inasmuch as'the Pharos has published Mr. Kearney's! acceptance of my challenge In full., I, shall ask the Reporter .and Journal, In justice to' their readers ; and myself to publish my challenge to Mr. Kearney, In. full. Also your reply to. it/ as Mri Kearney's representative;:- that.-, the people may have an opportunity'\io Judge for themselves as to the lenge. and its' answer. A M ffl_, . -ff. ran '•'-A' "school boy," rather an old one, from.Miami, township, quotes Coin against- Coin In the Pharos of last evening. It is hardly worth while to expose the fallacies of Coin. Any school'boy can do that The Journal lu its Semi-Weekly of August 28, exposed thftrweakness of Coin's cube, showing that, the 1 ratio by cube measurement, as' Coin-gave it, was 27 to 1. ' But to show-the fallacy of this It is only necessary to-quote from Coin. Coin says on pngo 10t '.'The director of'our mint says there was in the world In 1890 in the form of silver coin and bullion used as money, ?3,820,571;34G." On'the same page:he says: "You can put It all- all the silver of the world—in one o.f tiie.-rooms of this building." In the first statement he speaks of the silver coin/.and- -bullion as so much. In the second he says "all the sliver of the world." He Is off in both statements. RACES AT DRIVING PARK SEPTEMBER 15, 16,17, 18. $3,000.00 in Premiums. HE SHOULD SUCCEED. Young Man Intends to Barber His Way Through College. Young Saul Epstein of San Francisco has entered the University of California tills year and decided to work his way through college as a barber.

NO MEETING TONIGHT. McKinley Club Unable to Secure a Speaker For the Evening. Th'ei-e will be no meeting of the Logansport. McKinley club (his evening. An effort was made to get a speaker for the evening from some city nearby, but the notice was too short and as all of the local speakers are engaged, it •was thought best to postpone the meeting of the club one week, when an OKI-. tor from some city in the State will be secured. C. C. Shirley of Kokomo has been spoken for and if possible will be present. The marching club which was formed last Tuesday evening, with a membership of fifty-nine, will meet next Tuesday evening at the rink, and will at once ]get down to active business', Capt. Chase will select his line officers and tlie club will be put in shape to march on a moment's notice. Henry Klstler of Ray Bros.' grocery store celebrated his thirty-first birth^ day anniversary yesterday REED'S RECENT BPK5RAMS. The opportunity lo labor is the opportunity to live.- Man no longer shnr.s labor as his deadliest foe, but welcomes it as hJs dearest friend. Give us the opportunity to labor, anil the whole world of human life will burst into tree and flower. Neither loud indignation nor flowery speech, neither great promises nor wila harangues will help any man out of disaster or any nation out of haffi times. Temper will not even untie a shoe string, and the harder you push a rope the more it will not go ajjy whither. When' the people all work together when they all have faith In each other then prosperity reigns. We shall be saved now. not by cutters or professors, but by the SOULH sense of an honest nation. Confidence is prosperity. Distrust'fe ruin. , Prosperity, specuialjon, hard timec, it is the same succession of events tlie world over. Money in hand is better than money in bush, especially when you cannot tell what .'kind of a bush it will be. The past is for the wise man. the orfy guide for the future. What man. hae done man will do. The capital of the world is waiting to be our servant . There is a. borrowing a.ad lending world. Reasonable certainty makes business; uncertainty paralyzes it I wish I could assure you of a future prosperity that would reign unbrotcc forever and ever. But history knoTrc human nature too welt jou have seen exhibited many tlmee remedies for all the ills the world"* heir to, but did you ever see a perfectly healthy world? You ncTer.will. . Everything we do not know Jiny- tliing about always looks big. .Whenever we take a trip into the alms of fancy we" see a good many things that never were. The safe footing in this world is 'of things we know. 'Are we all to plunge into foolishness unless some great man hils upon something sure? If the world has got to waJt for that panacea, let uie tell you that the rest of death is a flash or lightning compared to the rest we are going to take. We'know that we shall as surely rtae again to business and prosperity as that tomorrow's sun will rise.
