The special gas committee will meet in regular session this evening at the Mayors office. All members ara urged to be present. Who Arc the Backer*? An Anderson special says that 'After a thorough shifting Cai McCollougb, president of the old Indiana league of '89 and the man at the head of the league project this year, has sized up the situation for this year. • 'To say tbe least it is not very encouraging for an eight-club league, and it is doubtful if a six-cornered venture would be tried. After a lengthy correspondence with tbe financial backers in the desired cities he finds that only Lafayette, Logansport, Fort Wayne and Anderson can got tbe necessary cash behind teams to ineuro a permanent organization. Muncio could be represented by allowing the street railroad company to manage the team, and Lebanon would in all probability be represented if an organization was effected. The last named club can secure plenty of backing, but would be compelled to build an inclosed park. Marion. Kokomo, Peru and Clwood were unable to make any showing 1 . •A meeting will be held in this city within the next two weeks in order to reach a final decision.

It is one of the few successful Irish plays, and has a record of nine years 1 success to its credit. The Boston Advertiser says: "The familiar Irish comedy drama, "The Ivy Leaf" was presented by the \V. H. Power company at the Howard Athenxum last evening to a good sized audience. The play was fairly well staged throughout, the scenery in some cases being very well set. Smith O'Brien as Murty Kerrigan, was as true a picture of a warm hearted, brave and handsome Irish lad as has been seen on the Howard stage for a long time. In the singing his part requires, he possesses a good voice." The program for the 12th annual meeting of the Northern Indiana Teachers Association has been received.
