TIIK OFFICIAL PAPKU OF THE CITY. ri'ntprcd us second-class mutter at the Logans- nori Vast onice, February t). 18SB-1 TUESDAY -MORNING, APRIL 3. THE CITY ELECTION, The city election will occur four weeks from today and the republican nominations will be made Friday and Saturday of next week. In an election of thin sort there are always diverse interests at work, some of them conducive to the public good, aome of them merely personal and some of them secret and hostile to the best interests of the community. Unfortunately too many voters are misled by what seems to them good argument only to find out that a ralstakn has been made. Against such possibilities of mistake the voter should carefully guard himself. Among the active politicians are those who desire the supremacy of the party and Ua principles and who care, fully favor from the avallnble material such selections as shall insure success at the polls and a carrying 1 out of the republican Idea of good government afterwards. They do not seek to reward friends and just as cordially support a personal enemy if ho is the right man for tbo right place- ThiB element depends for Its Influence upon fairness and judgment and when It becomes unfair, unjust, prejudiced or tricky its power wanes and with it the party, Another element, just as Important, la that which always bus candidates and is enthusiastic for them. These politicians want Jones or Brown or Thompson nominated. Their friendship for Jones or Brown or Thompson la so warm that judgment is warped and sometimes the worst possible candidate for success, or a good admin- stratlon afterwards, is most enthusiastically backed by earnest friends, Still another faction is composed of those who are in thewe-grlndlng business. They have an office promised or a scheme to get through or they are working on pay for some one who is thus Interested. This last element is the dangerous one. It is at work now in Logansport. It ii at work in both parties. There la not a shadow of doubt but that the Ft. Wayne Electric Light Company wants another five year contract at $100 per light. There IB not a shadow of doubt but that the Natural Gas Company wants a new council that may be more favorable to it, in a small w»y at least, than the last. There is not a shadow of doubt that these two corporations are taking an active hand in th« city campaign, And so the Journal urges extreme caution and extreme care. Let the republicans ,use caution in forming their Judgment. The man who praises or condemns a candidate may hive an improper motive. lie miy be honest about it but led into a false advocacy by some . one whose statement ha accepted carelessly. Let republicans use care ir the selection of the ticket Get the best material and success is certain. All the candidates now mentioned are free from any of the alliance* above suggested but it Is the eleventh hour candidate who is introduced to a convention or a primary packed for him who most frequently represents the enemy to public good. The republican party In Lo- gangport has always been free from dangers of this sort but with a possi bility of power cornea a possibility of danger of this sort and the people should be on guard. ALL Fool's day seems to have given the Pharos new Inspiration and it breaks out with another oh.atter about Boyer hypnotizing Mayor Read and the council. Is it the gas company or the Fort Wayne electric light company that is Instigating this? Boyer's term does not expire for two years and an attack on him now is absurd from a political standpoint since the council is democratic. THE South Carolina militiamen do not seem to be as anxious to flght as were their predecessors thirty years ago. Nor does their desertion when ordered out by the governor reflect credit on their patriotism. THE telegraph reports show that the Ft. Wayne Electric Light Company la charged with usicg money wrongfully at Hamilton, O. Poitlbly It does not like the Logansport council. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.— Pharoi, May 6th, 1893. WASHINGTON GOSSIP, Bits of Information Picked Up by Our Correspondent.

One o£ them is con'jprnin,*; :i ncnvKpapi-'r mun named Will UonlfO.r. While Hooker was managing cili'ior of a paper at Ashland, Wis., he fell in love with the pretty stepdaughter of tho wealthy publisher of the newspaper. Tho latter objected to the union und offered Hooker a, monetary consideration if lie would move further west. The newspaper man declined, whereupon ho was discharged, and he was forced to go to Milwaukee, where ho obtained employment. After his disappearance, the stepdaughter announced that the engagement was broken. After an absence of three months, Hooker reappeared, coming in by u country road on horseback. His sister came into town by train at the same time. Sho, with some friends of Hooker's, made the necessary arrangements, and at noon Hooker quietly but hurriedly walked into the Congregational church. A clergyman was in waiting, and at the altar stood the publisher's pretty stepdiuichter, surrounded by a group of friends. While on his way to church Hooker had been recognized by several friends, and he was in haste to have the ceremony ended. "Do you want tho complete service?" asked the minister. "Cut it down to a stick," was Will's reply, resorting to printer's English in his excitement. The preacher looked astonished, but ho understood, and soon tho knot was tied. I'UKDH »" Lively as Cricket*. The comforts of the press gallery in the- senate arc far from perfect. A chill and killing draft blows through it all day long, and with its acoustical disadvantage, the thick and uncertain tones of the reading clerk, and the confusion steadily maintained by tho pages, it is difficult to follow the senate proceedings with cnso and accuracy. While the selection of boys is as good as probably can be made, their rules of government might be improved. They dash in concert for each senator who calls, as rushers make for a football; and the spectacle of these uniformed school boys scrambling over the senate floor is far from encouraging 1 to an admirer of dignity and order. Tho other day two of these impetuous and ung-overned youths collided in the central aislo and knocked each other flat upon tho floor. Where Did He Get That Hut? One day recently Big Tom Reed lost his hat at the capitol. He thinks it was stolen, but he probably laid it down carelessly somewhere, and forgot about it. He has a very, large head,and could find nothing "around the building-that would fit him. When ho left for tho Shoreham ho had on his head a derby three sizes too small, and 'It THBBE BIZES TOO SMALL, presented the appearance of Harry Watson 'in German comedy. The ex- speaker did not linger anywhere on bis way home. A Que«r Plum of Mail Matter. -"We find some strange things in the mails," said a railway postal clerk who delivered a tramp to a police officer. When the southern night line train pulled into Sixth stijeet depot Thursday night the clerks of tho railway mail service were throwing 1 out tho mail bags intended for the post office here and for points further north, when one of them grabbed, as he supposed, a canvas bag, but it proved to bo an Italian tramp who hail been lying 1 beneath a pile of sacks, canvas and leather. The intruder said ho was out of work and money, and being 1 desirous of reaching New York had concealed himself under the mail bags at Charleston, and took his'chances of getting- through. He was rather disappointed when he.found that his trip to Now York had been interrupted. Ho was sent to a police station house. Senator Vent's Log-ubrlou« Tule. Senator Vest tells good stories, all of them entertaining, and many of them apocryphal. He listened one evening 1 recently at Chamberlain's to a marvelous story by Amos Cummings conc«rning the luckiest man on earth. Cummings really exceeded the story of Monte Christo. "Speaking of luck," said Senator Vest, "I will tell you a story to which another man in this company can bear witness. One day,, while I was in Richmond aa a member of the confederate congress, I lost a roll of money, my pay for the month, somewhere m the street on my way from the war office to the hotel. Just as the woman in the Scripture who lost a pi«ce of silver 'called together her neighbors and friends »n'd sought diligently until she found it;' so 1 called a lew leuows together and went on what seemed to bo a hopeless finest through the diinly- lightcd n-nd snow-covered streets.

At lentrth, however, we were piloted to a saloon to which, pending- some 1 repairs, access was lind from the street only by a ladder of about a dozen runga.

Uuoquul Pi»y nua Uiitiqiml Labor. The senate is not only more dignified, more awe-inspiring and more pretentious than the house, but it is also more extravagant. The employes of the senate receive better salaries than the employes of the house. The senate has proportionately a great many more employes than are allotted to the house. The eighty-eight senators em- ploye forty-five messengers, and the three hundred and fifty-six representatives only flfty-one. The ratio is fully as great an to other employes. Tho duties of the house employes are, therefore, far more more arduous than those of th* employes in tho senate. They work six days a week, while the senate employes work only four, and get nearly twenty-five per cent, more salary. The sergeant-at-arms of the house certainly has more work to -keep the accounts of the three hundred and fifty- six members than tho sergeant-at-arms of tho senate to keep the accounts of the eighty-eight senators. And still he ' gets far loss pay. The senate usually adjourns on Thursday over to Monday. The house remains in session throughout the week. Flgurm from thn Pny Roll*. Messengers in the house receive from $1,000 to $1,200 a year. Messengers of the senate receive 81,440 a year. The stationery clerk in the house gets$l,800 a year; in the senate this clerk receives 92,100. Tho chief engineer of the house wing gets 81,700 a year; in the senate wing the engineer gets $2,160. An assistant engineer in the house gets 81,200 a year; in the senate these assistants receive $1,440 a year. Firemen in tho house get $900, and in the senate, 81,095. To go still higher, the clerk of the house receives only 84,500 a year, while the secretrry of the senate.re- ceives $0,090 a year. Tho sergeant-at- arms of tho house has $4,000 a year, while the sergeant of the senate receives $4,020. A M»n Who H»» » 8»»p. One of tho best positions of an appointive nature in the house of representatives is that of tally clerk: -The salary is 83,000 per annum ana" the work is »s near nothing as it can be and yet retain the semblance of sufficient labor to excuse the existence of the office. It is the duty of the tally clerk whenever there is a yea or nay vote taken upon any proposition to be present and make accurate and complete record of the vote of every member of the house who is present and voting. When the house engages in a siege of filibustering or in a succession of all- night meetings the tally clerk is obliged to go without sleep and really perform exhausting duties, but this occurs so seldom that the office is practically a sinecure. For example, from the adjournment of the house on March 4, 1898, to the commencement of the extra session in August, a period of five months, the tally clerk had nothing to do but draw his salary of $2-10 per mouth with great regularity. During the three months of the extra session he was obliged to be on duty altogether but thirty hours. For this work h« received the sum of ?- 1 ..C3a. _£UirJn«r *.h« nrnsr.nt. session of ing parents were as ambitious and | hopeful for their children as any civil i ized and educated parents could be. , Very early the Indian boy assumed | ,the task of preserving and transmitting the legends and stories of his an cestors and his race. Almost ever) evening a myth, or » legend of some deed done in the past, was narrated by one of the parents or grandparents, and to it the boy listened with parted mouth and shining eyes. On the following evening he was usually required to repeat it- If he was not an apt scholar, he struggled long with his task; but, as a rule, the Indian boy is a good listener and has a good memory, so that the stories were tolerably well mastered. The household became his audience, by whom he was alternately criticised and applauded. This sort of teaching at once enlightens the boy's mind and stimulates his ambition. His conception of his own future career becomes a vivid and irresistible force. Whatever there is tor him to acquire must be acquired; whatever qualifications are necessary to a truly great warrior and hunter, he mnst seek at any expense of danger and hardship. Such was the feeling of the imaginative and brave young Indian. It becomes apparent to him early in life that he must accustom himself to rove alone, and not to fear or dislike the impressions of solitude, but acquaint himself thoroughly with nature. Much has been said about Indian children's "instincts." To be sure, we inherited some of the characteristics of our ancestors, but the greater part of our faculties we had to acquire by practice. All the stoicism and patience of the Indian are acquired traits. Physical training and dieting were not neglected. I remember J was not allowed to drink beef soup or any warm drink. The soup was for the old men. The general rules for the young were never to eat their food very hot, nor to drink much water. My uncle, who educated me, was a severe and strict teacher. When I left his teepee for the day, he would say to me: "Ilakada, watch everything closely and observe its characteristics;" and at evening, on my return, ho used to catechize me for an hour or so. "On which side of the trees is the light-colored bark? On which side do they have most regular branches?" It was his custom to let me name the new birds I 'had seen during the day. I would name them according to the color, or habits, or the shape of tho bill, or their song, or the appearance and locality of the nest—in fact, anything about the bird which impressed me as characteristic. I made many ridiculous errors, I must admit. He then usually informed me of the correct name. Occasionally I made a hit, and this he would warmly commend.—Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman, in St Nicholas. OLD ENGLISH CROCKERY. Extraordinary Tailed Prevailing Prior to th« Sixteenth Century. Down to tho sixteenth century the extraordinary mixtures, both as to ingredients and seasonings, which prevailed, gave an indication of the tastes of the period. Thus blamange, or, as it is generally spelled, blanc-manger, instead ot being merely a jelly of milk or cream, was formerly composed of the pounded flesh of poultry, boiled with rice and milk of almonds, and sweetened with sugar, while a mixture of the same kind, but colored with blood or sandal wood, was called a rose. Ituckuado was the name of another typical preparation, and this was made of meat "hewn in goblets," pounded almonds, raisins, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, onions, salt and fried herbs, thickened with rice flour, and colored yellow with saffron. Moracno or mawmony was a sort of norridne.for which the cuisine of our Awarded Highest Honors-World's Fair. ^PRICE'S Baking Powder Tfce only Pure Crewn of T«rt»r Powder.-No Ammonia; No Ahffl.
