[ Kntenxl iia second-class m»Unr at the Logansport FostonlCB, Februarys. 18** 1 THURSDAY MORNING. MARCH 8 A PLKA FOR THE TRUTH. Councilman Dolan last evening pre> sonted a report to tbo Council show ing tho facts about the sewer extension. The work was proposed by Engineer Cheney. Under the plans the storm water sewers needed ran into the Wabaah river down Eleventh street and Eighth street. It was found that on ihese routes solid rock would be encountered and extra heavy pipe would have to be used on account of tho Pan Bardie yards Engineer Cheney reported that the river oould be reached by way ol Erie avenue and Elm street at a great saving to the city. His recommonda lion was adopted and the change wan oi-dered. As far as Councilman Boyer is con corned the Logan Milling Co,, has its own sewer to the river. It was made large enough to drain the old canal bed and did drain it, thus being a pub lie benefit and no doubt preventing much sickness. Tho storm wate sewor is of no benefit to the Milling Co., whatever. Notwithstanding that tho Company and most of the property holders expect to pay for the work done along their premises eo that the work will eventually cost the city little or nothing. Tho studied and willful misropresen Ution of Councilman Boyer by the Pharos is disgraceful. The demo cratic councilmen who carry all the motidns are not spared by the Pharos in its efforts to deceive the public. If the editor of the Pharos gave one- tenth as much time voluntarily and freely to the public as does Councilman Boyer he might well be praised for his generosity and public spirit. There should be an end to this Pharos misrepresentation. Toll the facts without exaggeration and if the public see fit to criticise the judg ment of the Councilmen that is their right. Don't retard necessary public works nor disgust honest and publlo spirited citizens by misrepresentations and a studied effort to create the im. pression that they are dishonest. The present Councilmen may have made mistakes but they are honest and the Pharos well knows it. TIIE special electric light commit tee of the council made a report last evening. The report Is too long for reproduction this morning but It will appear in the Journal tomorrow morning. The facts and Sgurei show that the city can get 1U light for nothing by furnishing private consumers at a rate of about one-half (he present rate, thud e»vlng the city $10,000 per year and the consumers fifty per cent, of the present ooct. Every taxpayer of Loganeport ought to be enthuslas- tlcly In favor of thU project. It ia one of the best things ever devised In the Interests of economy. Our water works system gives the city water free for fire protection while other cities are paying from $25,000 to $50,000 annually to private companies for water for this purpose. The light system car be made just as valuable to tho taxpayers. Oun esteemed contemporary the Indianapolis Sentinel has not yet stated Its position on the assertion of the Pharos that "Millions of dollars worth of /arm machinery 18 made In this country and told abroad at lower prices than at home.' 1 The Journal simply requested the Sentinel to state whether thli assertion was true or false. It made the request on the Invitation of the Sentinel and it has anxiously awaited a reply WHALEBACKS will' be parting through Logansport when the ship canal Is built.—Pharos. And probably whales.

H« Dwells Alone on a Mountain Famed In forty" Year* Away from Civilization tm th» Mountain! of Arizona—Known Everywhere at the Hermit of the 8u Dentition. [Special PhmiilJt (AH) A few days since a peculiar figure ivus seen on the sl'x-ets of the rising town of M.'sn, an old man trudging behind his two burros with u, rifle flunk' OV1 ' ! " n ' s shoulder, lie halted, wit down under tht> covered sidewalk in front of the general store, brought his piece, to rest with the stock within his rijrht elbow and the barrel upon his knee, a habit bred by two score years of lifu amorjff the mountains in the Indian country, On this mild winter day he was coa,tU>.ss, with ilunnel shirt open upon his hairy breast, clothing torn and dusty. His hair fell tangled upon his hhouldors and his beard, matted and K ra y, descended upon his ohest. For forty years he had not combed or trimmed either. It was Old Reavis, thehermitof the Superstitious mountains. His solitary existence in those mountains has drawn uncanny lines across his forehead and given a vacant hut suspicious stare to his restless blue eyes. This old man of the mountains, who only once or twice a year loads his ljurro.s with pardon truck and brings it to town to exchange for supplies, holds the rare secret of the hills that all the dwellers of the valley look upon with curiosity, but cannot read. As the hermit was seated at ,i table in a Chinese restaurant taking his one square, regular ''two-bit" meal of the year he crustily remarked: ''Newspaper man, you say? T don't like newspapers; they spoil a country. They tell great stories and bring- people into a country and when they come it's no pooil after that. I never read them, no more than I comb my hair. It's against my principles," When asked why the mountains on the east side of the Salt river's desert valley, whore he lives, arc called Superstitious mountain she related two traditions, one of the Indians, the other of prospectors. The Apache Indian* teil that a long time ago when there were many of their people living in the valley these mountains opened in the form of a vast cavern into which all their people were drawn and then it closed upon them. There they must remain prisoners till some day they will come out as white men. Though this mysterious mountain is in tho heart of their country the Indians are wary of approaching it. The prospector's tale is that at the southern end of the long mountain are great holes in the rooks and chasms, chimneys and towers among which never-ceasing winds whistle and howl dismally. Coyotes and wolves live in the caves and yelp more frightfully than on the desert,, making .a chorus to .the accompaniment of tho,..\yjeir4 winds that is like a thousand dogs. howling at a tolling bell. The mountain sides aro here covered with the giant saguara cactus, that irises straight up in a single thorny column twenty, thirty, forty feet, or sends up branches that extend upward like a man's uplifted arms. This region was visited by the Apache Indians on their raids for prospectors who have always believed it to bo a gold country. The Indians would litfht the j cacti, on Superstition mountain, which j are,very inflammable and would flame j like.great candles—signal fires to the .marauders ,on distant summits. So the •' mountains came to be dreaded as haunted, not only by the rod devils but by > spirits of murdered men who waile.d. In its glooiny fastnesses, and .took the name of Superstitious mountains. For decades they were shunned anil remained utterly unexplored. 'They were as desert as the barren, . sun-lrissed stretches that guard their streamlet that comes down Irom a reservoir in the mountains. Close by is tho low mud hou.sc. u f Mexican style where the hermit lives. "On the scrub live oaks oud grease wood browse his 'burros, and his baud of sheep and cattle range over the desert hills and ravines. They an: his care and sustenance. There in the rocky heart of arid Arizona, with no white man within forty miles, he lives. "lint," said lie, "people are getting too thick out my way." Then lie told how a, few sc-ason.s ago a hardy prospector with burros laden with water jars and with compass in hand was able to enter the trackless maze of "the Superstition," as the hermit calls it. and stay long enough to trace out a vein of gold—pure gold, he excitedly told, as he brought his specimens back to 1'hnenix. This lucky prospector named his lind the Mumnioth and sold it for twenty thousand dollars. Now a Highest of all !• Le.veninf Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't &<¥«*> ABSOLUTELY PURE MRS. LEASE A MASON.

Then he went for his supplies to PhflDnix. Again the railroad followed him, so now he goes to thu smaller towns on the farthest verge of spreading civilization that marks with a fringe of green and a ribbon of water a line across the desert waste.

A ship regularly engaged in deep-sea sounding usually lias the sounding machine mounted at the after end, and when about to sound is brought to a standstill with the stern to the sea. The stray lino, with the sounding rod and sinker attached, is over the guide pulley and carefully lowered to the water's edge, the register is set to zero, and the deep sea thermometer is clamped to the sounding line; n, seaman is stationed at the friction line which controls the velocity with which the wire Is unreeled, another at the brake, I and a third on the grating outside to handle the sinker and instruments and to guide the wire as it passes overboard; a machinist is at the hoisting engine and the recorder takes a position for reading the register.' When the sinker is let go the vessel Is maneuvered so as to keep the wire vertical, and the friction line is adjusted so as to allow it to descend from seventy to one hundred fathoms per minute. The instant the sinker strikes bottom, which is unmistakably indicated by the sudden release of the wire from strain, the reel is stopped by the friction lino and brake; the recorder notes the number of turns of the ree.l.

I propose to devote a large share of ray time to initiating women into the secrets of masonry. As I am thoroughly informed in the details of masonic work to a high degree, it will not be necessary for me to obtain the permission of any masonic body before beginning work in this field, and if the men decline to recognize my converts to masonry we can act independently of them and time will force them to cooperate witft us." While Mrs. Lease admits it is contrary to the laws of masons to initiate women into its mysteries, she insists that she became a mason in a strictly legitimate way, but declines to give particulars of the manner in which she acquired the secrets of the order. Mrs. Lease challenges any mason to test her knowledge of the iwcret work of the order. .NEW SUPREME JUSTICE. Short BUjrapbica} tlketeh of Kdwmrd Doa(lM» White.
