The indications are strong that the people ol Logansport are willing to place the republicans in power at the corning city election, Four republican members ol the council hold over and the fifth, whose term expires, lives in a strongly republican' ward. Tbe council will thus almost certainly be a tie at the worst and the election ol a republican mayor or a republican councilman In any of th« other wards would place upon the republican party the responsibility for the administration of city affair*. Tbe people want that this should be so and so far as the Journal la con- oerned It is willing that the responsibility should »e placed there and It pledges a full realization of the trust imposed. But the party will not be placed in power unless it shows itself worthy of It and the primaries should be attended bv every republican voter. These meetings are called lor Friday evening next, at the places designated in the official call and republicans should be present to see that a full, lair and free expression of republican opinion is given. The Journal never feels uneasy as to the result of a republican mass meeting, attended by all tbe republicans in the locality concerned. Such a meeting always does the best thing for the party and the best thing for the people and furthermore affords 10 oppor. tuclty for complaint cby defeated candidates. It is the trickster who attempts to thwart tho purpose of the masses who loads down the party with weak candidates. And 80 the Journal urges the Importance of attendance at the prlmar- ee where candidates lor council are named and where delegates to the city convention are chosen. Let us have a 'ull, lair, free expression ol opinion and the people will indorse it at the pells. _ G. E. BARNBTT, generally known as 'Ed", announces In this morning's Journal his candidacy lor Treasurer, ubject to the will ol tke republican ilty convention. Mr. Barnett was born in Cass county thirty-seven years ago and has lived here all his life. He graduated Irom the High school in 1876 and soon alter engaged In the ice business He remained In this business lor thirteen years making many rlends by his strict attention to business and courteous maaner. Four •ears ago he was appointed distrlbut- ng clerk at the postoffice and was oon after promoted to mailing clerk, a jositlon which he held until the re. ent change. Mr. Barnett is competent and effl- ient, and worthy the honor which he sks of his party. ' CHAKICS A. SMITH announces his andidaoy lor Clerk In this morning's ournal, subject to the republican ominating convention. Mr. Smith is wenty-nlne years of age and has ,ved in Loganuport twenty-six years. He received a High school education. Ince leaving school he has been engag. d in business. For six years he was ookkeeper for Stevens Bros., the umber and planing mill men, and hese gentlemen speak of him in tho Ighest terms. Ho left their employ 0 go Into business for himself about a ear ago. Mr. Smith is oapablo and ompetent and if elected will reflect onoron his party.

SPRING'S ARRIVAL. Bab ChaHcra Awar on Tbl» Beaton. Special Correspondence. NRW YORK. April 2, 1884. There Is no doubt that spring has come. The certainty of Its coming ID not decided by tho flowers, the grass, or by the blossoming of tho trees. Oh, dear no. Tbe ar-ival of epnng lg shown In an entirely dlllerent and much more original way. When Adam and Eve constituted everybody, and gossiped about the springing up ol the various plants, the budding ot the crocus in Its yellow robe probably meant spring time to them, but since the growth of society, since the sue. oesaors of Adam have increased, a different mode obtains. Spring is not here urtil the circus arrives; nor until tbe price of quinine goes up, nor uatll one sees. here, there and everywhere two people who look unutter ably happy, and who announce by their faces, I was tempted to say by their oheek, that they are newly mar. rled. TBULT, SPRING IS HBBK These are signs and symptoms of tbe arrival of spring. There is something wrong when one doesn't enjoy the circus. It eec-ma to me that among the joys ol th<* here, alter will be a free pass to that delightful show, which -is largely sham, but all pleasure. Just fancy being able to go whenever you wlaned to look at the elephants, inhale the perlume of the lion, and tremble with fear at the sight of the tiger; to think what a high collar tbe giraffe could wear, and to leel the bliss It must be to ride on a wild and untamed steed, gowned in a pink tulle frock. Flays may come and plays may go. We maybe bored to death with "Hamlet," and sigh with weariness over the so- called farce, but there is always something new about the circus; and always something that makes one leel as If, after all, life was a pretty good thing, and the people in the world, espfioially the people who first invented circuses, are, alter all, about as desirable as they can be. Do you remember the first circus you ever went to? I am- sure it was not like tbe one to which yon go today. In the first place, it was in a tent, and three-quarters of the pleasure consisted in the delightful fear that the seats were going to break down, and that your life was, so to sayv not exactly in your own hand,but resting on the honor ol the'oarpenter, and the strength el the wood. Then you did not see everything on one ticket, but, alter having gazed at lovely colored pictures ol the bearded lady, ol the twin sister ol Queen Victoria, and the only real native ot Timbuotoo who ever cacao to this country, and wore all his diamonds at onoe; alter having seen these things and believed that the one pink slip of paper would give you an opportunity to view them all, than it was always a novelty to discover that each vision meant a separate ten cents, and that not one quite came up to what was expected. The bearded lady's voice was not purely feminine; the gentleman from Timbuotoo might have had on all his jewels, but somehow they aid not look as real on him as in the picture, but dlsaapolnted as you were about all these things, still there was a groat pleasure in the smell of the sawdust, in the appearance ef the ring-master, and In tbe trained dogs that made you leel happier than you had been for a year. LIVIVG CHILDHOOD OVBR AOAIN. Personally, I am a great bellver In the circus. The late lamented Mr. Barnum used to say that It was educating, but I am not exactly certain about that; in fact, I don't very much care whether it is or not, but It cer- tamly does make people young again. It seems to me as If It were the tame dear elephant who ate apples when I was a girl—I would not like to say how many years ago—who now looks out from his queer little eyes and eee me juat as hungry as if in all that time he had never absorbed any of the delightful fruit that first brought trouble into this world. The ringmaster of today is just as handsome and impressive as he of the past. Surely he found the fountain of youth years ago when th«y stopped over In Florida, and In finding it he also discovered some other great fountain that gave him that exquisite manner which makes all the women aid children wish that they might join the caravan and be able to listen to his delightful requests every day. Nobody wants to look back of the scenes. That is one ol the joys ol the circus. Nobody ever loses bis illusion about it. Indeed, it seems to me that If there is in all this country, in all this wide world, a single human being who does not find pleasure in it, it is because there is something wrong with him, mentally and physically. And because I can see the big potters from out my wla»»w; beoauta at I am paylnf tbe extra price for quinine, and could only hear the bands tbe night of the procession, I know that spring is'bere beoauae the circus has come. The next thing of interest In town are the newly married onea. I LOVE A BRIDE, and I pity » bridegroom. The avor- age bride of today who has come to New York on her wedding trip, may he found any afternoon drinking soda water and holding on to the young man whose name she condescends to bear, as if she were afraid some other girl was going to run away with him. She walks him up the streets exactly aa If she were exeicleing a puppy, and she has everything matching ao perfectly that if you could not tell that she had lately entered the holy state by the glitter ol her wedding ring, you would know it because his gloves and hers are exactly the same shade, and his scarf is made out ol a piece ol tho silk that Is combined with tbe cloth in her golng-away frock. She condescends to him as if he bad never been any place before, and she believes that the sml'es that grtet her as she walks into the hotel dining-room, attired in a pale blue wrapper trimmed with white lace, are those of approbation and not of amusement. She is supremely disgusted because the newly married has registered as "Mr. J«hn Brown and wife" j rather than "Mr John Brown and ! lady," and ske tells him that people at home see that ' they will know he thinks mighty little of her to put her down in black and white In that way. The poor wretch may endeavor to persuade her that he has done what Is right, but she will be in- dlgnant lor t least two hours, and tho only way he can ever bring her back to her original state ol amiability will be by parading her down street, star. Ing with her into shop windows, and eventually buying her a new boonet. When they go lor a walk SHE CUDDLES DP TO HIM and the other day, after she had advised him about the flavor of his soda water, he happened to notice that a girl was looking at him, and she clutched one of hla handi, a» If she feared he might bo led astray b one of what she calls "the wicked New York women." Stie believes, aweet Innocent, that every woman she sees envies her, and that they are all laying trapa to Induce the ma,n of her heart to stray away from ,her. It is beautiful to eee her in the reading room ol tbe hotel, where she Is writ- ting a letter to the people at home. After one paragraph has been written she reads it aloud to him, and for the benefit of 'everybody around; and, although he says he don't think she ought to talk so loud, she has him for the time being under her control that be don't even dare say that his soul ii hit own, and command her to keep silence. I often wondered what her next visit to New York will be; but Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. & Gov't Report Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE being with each other, but not in each other's society. I wonder if you notice that distinction If you do you will think as I am forced to, tha society means the evil principle There was no society in the Garden o Edea until the serpent appeared Then history began. Then there was somebody to talk things over with Up to that time Adam and Eve found pleasure in each other. They liked to be together, and it was uidoubtedl amusing to see things sprout, and to watch the animals walk around; but until Kve met the serpent, and chatted with him, and ften went back and told Adam what he said, am what she thought about it, there was n* society. Eve, after that, probably met Llllth, was properly Introduced to her, and in talking grew very bitter about the weakness of Adam, while the serpent eat around, and was epigrammatic and amusing. That was the beginning of history, Adam jjj" ) told the serpent what he knew about women as represented by Eve, although when it came to that the ser. pent could give htm points about the eternal feminine, and then after that there was the general rumpus that made history. Don't you think It is rather stupid lor historians to pay se much attention to the tiresome things instead of telling about what has really made history, what hag really caused the great events? DABBLING IN PERSONALITIES. Of course, all the occurrences of Importance In life have come from the little things, and we would much rather hear about them. We all have the same weakness. We like to know whether a great man took chocolate or coffee; whether he drank it in bed; whether his dressing gown was silk or wool, and how it was made. We are interested in knowing whether a beautiful woman wore lace-trimmed underwear, or If she lived in the time when they did not consider underwear necessary, what she wore in its place, and whether she bathed in milk or water, or whether she did not bathe at all. These things are humanity, and it Is humanity that we are interested la, and that makes history. I suppose I will get an immense deal of credit lor reading that book, but I glv<> you my word of honor that I never got any further than that first sen tar ce in the preface, and I have done nothing but talk about it ever since." That is one girl's ex. general Inquiry has proven that there is no next; that once he had gotten her home, be never lets her come with him again; but that fer the next twenty years she enjoys In telling about that trip, and what she thought of the great city. Poor soul! After all, she isn't a bride but once in her life. It is only right and just that she shouU be the person In power when she first appears as Mr. John Brown's lady. SOCIETY'S STARTING POINT. Next to the bride the most interesting woman in New York just now is the one who, during Lent, has gone in lor solid reading and lectures, and who Is now experiencing a reactloB, and being frivolous, This is what a girl said to me the other day. "It is very curioi's how opinions are reached and how Ideas come about. 1 suppose it is because .they C9me so seldom that they make an Impression. Durlag Lent I went in for reading history of the whole world, and, ss I adore a preface just as I do the prologue to a play, I read that at once. The first sentence was this: "History cannot discuss the origin of society." Now, you know that Is perfect nonsense. Of course, history cannot discuss the origin of society, because there was no history until there was society, and equally, of course, society did not originate with Adam and Eve. You are looking at me as if you thought that society could exist when there were only two people. It can not. It is perfectly nonsense to say that people find happiness in each other's society. Theiy nay find it in perienoe in improving her mind during Lent. Another one said she did not go to any lectures except those that had etereoptlcon views and her reason for this was a very proper one. She said •he could sleep while the lecturer was talking and waken up when the pio- tures were to be shown. Some others profess to have learned how to tit still, and that is a groat deal for the American woman, who, having most all of the virtues has yet to learn how to be perfectly calm. WEALTHY AND SELFISH. Some of the women in the extremely fashionable set, who are joying just now la talking about how poor they are, have gone In lor being very literary, and are doing something that I, for one, blame them for. Fortunately it does not interfere with me, but It does with a great many other women who have to earn their living by thoir pens. The other day I met a woman who has one of the most beautiful houses in New York, and who is the daughter of a rich man; she had just stepped out ol a very handsome carriage, on the box ol which, when she is driving, are two men. This woman was talking poverty and announcing that she was writing article* lor the different newspapers on art and music, and which sold and eoid well because she signed them with her own name, and her name would carry them. II by any chance she wrote opinion,! that were of great worth, or that were better than any other living woman can Id write, then it might be right and proper for her to do thle; but a» her articled are mediocre, and as it la simply the narce that sells them, I cot. aider her more than simply to be> blamed for taking the bread and butter from women who need It, That Is, in truth, what she is doing. She- Is crowding out the column and a half of matter every week aod taking the money for '.t that would otherwise have been given—I mean both space and money —to somebody who had made, writing her life-work, and whose income from it meant life. And when I say life, I mean a place to sleep In, a, something to eat and a something to wear. Then there are other women who are WRITING FOR THE PLEASURE OF IT. taking no money, and who in effect are doing exactly the same thing. Liking to eee her name in the papers, thltv type of woman sends paragraph after paragraph, article after article, and never stops to think of tfee harm she is doing and of the trouble she is giving to tome one. I do earnestly wish that these women would think just a little. Women have no right to plead poverty, and to take' work front those who need It, when they can afford to drive in swell traps, wear swell frocks, and to live and have their being in the most luxurious manner possible. vVben they do such things as those, they convince me that tho worst enemy a woman can have is another woman, and yet I don't like to think that. I wish I could thick that they do these things from ignorance,, t like to think there are women who are kind and loving and good to each other, acd I do believe that most want to be. "We didn't think." So many titties this is their plea. They forget the evil that Is wrought by ack ol thought. They forget that thoughtlessness is a very joor excuse for a creature with a jrain and a heart,. Think it over, my dear woman; think it all over, and don't, just to gratify your own vanity, take away from the woman who has to earn her living, the chance to do It. You have a man to care for you. If any ol the women who are working lave to care lor some man, a man who is an invalid, or who lor some reason, and God help tbe woman wko ias t* work for a man who is not ill, tas to be oared for by tbe one who ought not to be tbe moneymaker. AN ADMIRABLE CLASS OF 'WOMEN. The woman who works today is to- be respected. Oftenest she does goed work. Oftenest she Is honest. andi honorable. Oftenest she Is punctual about paying her debts, and it much- more square in money natters than the average man. Oftenest she It- working, not just merely for herself, >ut for somebody else. Oftenest the s at her work, whatever it may be, bother the weather be good or bad,, whether her heart be light or heavy, and whether her body be weak or trong. Oltenest she doesn't want to hirk any of her responsibilities, but ust once In awhile she hat to ask you o be a little patient with her. be- ,ause, though the spirit may be wiling, the flesh is weak; and so. gust or this once, if one ol the workers it not quite up to the mark, forgive her, »ecause from- a sickbed she is diotat- ng the lines that come to you Over the ignature ol BAB.
