It Is thought that a greater part of tho potty burglaries'which have been committed in Logansport will be sifted out by the apprebenHioo y outer , day norning of Alfoneo Brooks, a colored loafer and thief who has been no end of trouble to the police i.. times past. "Fon" was caught in the act of burglary. He was fairly taken by the police and will now likely got what he has so often escaped betoro, a term In tho penitentiary. A few minutes after 5 o'clock yesterday morning Officers Morris and Hiokoy, we--o standing OD the corner of Fifth and Market sfeets when they heard the crash of breaking glass. Looking up tbo street they saw a figure in the act of climbing into the door of Kreider's Hfth street erocory through the door, out of which the glas> had b«on broken. Tbo police mado a rush for tho spot and tho man hearing them coining jumped back and darted around the corner o to Broadway, running up tbo street at a record breaking speed. At tho first alloy ho turned, the policemen in lull chase, firing their revolvers as they went. Tho fuaailado amused that entire quarter of the city and many a night-capped head was poked through opened windows to ascertain tho cause of all these gigna of war. Brooks, for it wa^ ho, turned at tho intersecting alloy and ran bdck toward Fifth street, attempting to hide in tbo nooks 'and corners of the blind alley back of tbo ware houbos on F.ftb street. The police wore not easily thrown oil tho scont and Alfonso was nabbed and escorted to his old quarters in tho bastlle. . A discovery was made in a bar n on tho alley between Fifth and Sixth and North and Broadway yesterday which Implicates Brooks in the /. jit burglary a few nights ago. Brooks is wont to sleep in this biro. Yesterday there was found a quantity ot plunder, including whisky, tobacco, a cheese, etc. and a key stolon from /Colt's place. When Alfonso was captured he had his pockets full of clgare and his stomach full of whisky. During tho same night some oho broke a ,;lndow in the roar of Nelson & Myers' office and made themselves at home on the inside, the remains of a spread evidently made up largely of liquid refreshments being found in the pri. vato office of the lawyers.

In his talk to the committee chairman, secretaries, candidates and others in the New Tremont hotel parlors yesterday, he urged his hearers to favor their home papers In all matters of printing. He reminded them that, while the commltteemen and others worked during the cam- palgn, the editor worked for the sue- cess of his party continually, not a day or a week passed but the home newspaper had something good to say (or his party; that it was ever ready to defend the party candidates against all charges.
