Failure to Set a Switch <:au«e« » Brakcmau 111* Life—The Eneloe Ituii" OH' the Hltlluir null <'«tclit» the HI Fitted Urakemau Ilene»tla th* Wreck. At the station at Hartford City on the Pan Handle is a lap Btdinf? of nearly a mile in length. OH of this if a spur to a, coal dock. Last evening about 9:30 first section freight No. 81 pulled into Hartford. The engine and tender detached and went onto the spur for coal. After leaving the coal dook, front brakoman A. W. Benthlne, returned the first switch and rejoining the engine took hid seat. The engine connected onto the train and the engineer thinking that the switches were all right pulled out. Instead of going onto the main track as he expected, hie train went tn on the siding, thebrakeman having, with fatal thoughtlessness, neglected to turn the second switch. As described above the lap siding is nearly a mile long. In thli instance the train had gotten under considerable headway. At the end of the siding the engine plunged Off the track, dragging with it nine cars. The engineer, Al. Phillip* and his fireman, Phillip Tucker, had an opportunity to escape and jumped with minor injuries. Engineer Phillips escaped with painful injuries to his spine and Fireman Tucker with the fracture of a email bone of his right leg and bruises generally. The brakeman, through whose fault, the accident occurred, did not escape BO easily. He was probably silting in his place well forward and had no way to escape and when the engine overturned went with it. Ho was burled beneath the engine and his death was probably instantaneous. A. W. Bentbine was probably 27 years old. He lived here, having rooms over Harry Frank'* clothing store. He was popular among his friends and was known among his »ntlmate associates by the nickname of ^Shiner," by which many knew him only. His death is greatly lamented by those who know Him best. He came here from Ll|*d- nier something more than a year ago. THE LEQIOS OF HONOR. An IntHama Heroine Given the Cro»* of tb« Legion of Honor From' the French Society of Humanity Last fall, along In September the Journal contained an account, and, by the way, the first account given In print, of the affair, of the saving of a passenger train on the Pan Handle by a little girl at Mill Grove, a small station below Hartford City, by flagging the train against a burning culvert. Mr. W. S. Parks was the conductor on that train and he yester day received a letter from headquarters asking for a full verification of the story. It seems that on this verification rests the bestowal of a high honor to» little Indiana girl. The st»ry goes as follows: A farmer who was tilling a field along the railway's right of way had for his companion his little daughter who wandered from the field onto the railway. While playing on the railroad, she discovered that the culvert was on fire. Hastily warning her father of the danger she ran up the road, with a remarkable presence of mind, and pulling off her red petticoat waved it to the oncoming train, of which Mr. Parks was the conductor, succeeding in stopping the train just as it reached the dangerous trestle. The father of the girl by this time arrived with buckets, and with the assistance of the train crew put out the flames which endangered the train and its passen gers. The passengers recognizing the great service the little girl had been In the life saving way made up a substantial purse which was tendered her. Little more was thought of the matter until a few days ago when a letter was received by the railraad au- thorltles Irom Mme. Irma Gallet, of Paris, France, Directress of the Order of Humanity, asking for information on the subject. It Is addressed "Mon- ileur Pre»ident General of the State of Ohio," and the following IB a transit,, tltfn: ; : . ' ' "Having read in the Petit Journal about a little girl, who, by giving the danger signal, prevented the collision of two trains, saving thereby the lives of a great number of persons and showing great presence of mind and courage, I would send her a prize awarded at a solemn meeting of a society of life saving, approved ai of public utility by the French Govern • meni Will you be kind enough to let me know the name, surname and address by next mall «nd alio the, proper mode to convey, direct and Hie the charge, the diploma and the prize (the cross and the ribbon, of which you find a design inclosed) to this little girl. Receive, ny dear sir, best respects, etc " The design referred to is a trJ- colored ribbon, with a cross of tho Legion of Honor of Franca as a pendant, and in tbo center is tho Anchor of Hope. There Is no doubt of the identity of tho child Inquired for, and little Jennie Creole, of Mlllgrova. Ind., will probably ere long be woarincr the Cross of the Legion of Honor, tbo highest Insignia of honor In Europe. THE HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING. Tlie Board Decide* on Ked »«D<! •tone-Tbe Building; to be Completed October 1. The school board yesterday decided on the stone to be used in the new High school building. When the contract was let to John E. Barnes it was not determined what material would be used, tho bids being several in number covering the various kinds of stone and brick. The bonrd has since been Investigating and has aleo succeeded In getting tho stone men into active competition and as a result procured a reduction of fl,100 In tho offer of tbe Portage Entry Red Sand-stone Co. The Barnes bid for this was $30,010 with n, few changes considered and the bid has been thus reduced to $28,890 for the same work, fcr which reduction the Board is entitled to credit. The changes provide for plate glass windows on three sides and beveled plate for all doors. Krutsch & Laycock are the architects, and the build- Ing it to be completed by October 1st. OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED. Loganiport to be Headquarter* Wltb Superintendent'* and Oilier Office*. The following circular was issued by the Vandalia Railroad Co. yester. day.

WILLIAMS, Vice President and Gen'l Manager. tTho CongreMlOBal Delegation*. The claims of the candidates for congressional honors in this district vary somewhat and the Journal has attempted to get at the facts. It ha* heretofore published the claim* of Mr. Land is as it had no information from Judge Johnston. Of course the candidates are misled by the assurances of friends and neither of them seem to have secured accurate figures. Tbe Journal has received disinterested estimates from the counties which have already selected delegates and give them below. There will cbe 187 delegates In the convention and It will take 93 to nom loate. Mr. Lsndia claimed Carroll and White solid, half of Jasper and 7 of the 10 in Pulaskl. Mr. Johnston's claims are net out in a epeclal from Valparaiso in the Indianapolis Journal yesterday which says: A telegram received here this evening by the writer states that Judge Johnston, of this city, secured thirteen delegates in Jasper county and Landis but one. In Pulaskl county Judge Johnston secured seven, a»d possibly nine, out of ten. This gives Judge Johnston seventy-nine votes sure—Porter, 22: Lake, 32; Jasper, 13; Pulaskl, 7; and White 6." The Journal's information IB that the delegations chosen stand as follows: LANOIS. JOHNaTOH. CODHTIKS.

THE CANDIDATES. Tlie WoodH Are Full of Th«m—Some or tho PecullHrtliMt of the Campaign. In many respects this is one of the strangest city campaigns Logansport has experienced. Tho Ptmros, tho democratic organ, is antagonizing- its own party in tho City Council on account of the gas vote, while tho Jonrnal. on account of tho noble way in which the democrats in the council stood against the gas combine and tho Pharos hasn't the inclination to condem thorn for anything. Besides this, tho g-as company is using: evory secret means to defeat these servants of the people, and, the Pharos refus-- ing to defend, they have no organ to protect thorn. On the democratic side Mayor Read is a candidate for a second term. He is apparently strongly supported but he is a weak candidate wiih his party, though he has always been strongly partisan. Justice George W. Fender and Major McFadin are openly can. didates against him. though knowing ones say that Dr. M. A. Jordan will be the nominee. For Treasurer, the Hoffman honds- mon are actively oupporutig hitu for renomination and will probably win. James Shlnn aad James 0'ConneII are contesting for the honor. For Cierk, there are several candidates—Fred M McDermott, Hobt. M Kistler, M. J. Hanawalt, Charles K Klinck and Ed L. . Donovan have an- announced themselves. Rumor places Donovan In the load. For Councilman, Ed Kearney in the First ward is contesting the nomlna- tlon with Councilman Frank Beam, Kearney is said to be backed by the gas company, Beam having voted .against it every time. In the Second ward the democrats have tried to get R. C. Taylor, Tony Grusenmeyer and Miller Uhl to run without success and are now working on Walter Osmer. In the Third ward Councilman Drommp is a candidate for a second term though there is an effort to switch Dr. Jordan off and put him in the council. In the Fourth ward the democrats as usual are up a stump. Jeff Immol is tired signing bonds and running in republican wards and some other citl zen will have to be worked by the Pharos ring. !• the Fifth ward Councilman Peters is a candidate for another term but if the dark lantern caucuses amount to anything he will not be renominated He is secretly opposed by the Pharos because he voted against the gas company and as he does business on Fifteenth street near Erie avenue and voted for the avenue this will be used by the Pharos against htm. No councilman had greater interest In Erie avenue, at it gives him direct communication with the business part of the city, and the Pharos is using this against him secretly. On the Republican side, Vaughn, Webster, Starr and McKee arc candidates for Mayor; Swadener, Smith and Winters for Clerk; Long, Sargent, Allison, Powell and Barnett for Treat- urer. For Councilman, Ed Leonard of the First ward, George Haigh of the Second, Wm. Reiser and W. C. Sbeppard of the Third, J. C. Hadley of the Fourth and Charley Kerlin, N. R. Donaldson, Joe Klnney, John Ensfield and David Laing of the Fifth are talked of. The democratic primaries will be held tomorrow night when delegates to the city convention and candidates for the council will be named. The republican primaries are called for Friday night and both city conventions will be held Saturday evening.
