The candidates ot the two leading partios are now before the people and they sSould bo calmly considered. George P. McKoo. the republican nominee, euont live and one-half years In tbo army fighting for hid country bat ho bus never been a professional •old soldier." After the war he on- gaped in farming in Betblehem township. On the gas question be is sound and on the Baloon question he believes in total abstinence aa the safest ground. He does not question the rights of others to have more liberal views ani he is in no w»y fanatical. Ho will enforce the law according to the evidence. Every citizen will approve of this, especially the probable^; defendants, for if B judicial offer is unfair the defendant is always the victim of it. The corrupt Mayor either levies blackmail or con, viota the defendant so that in either case his class suffers. This has oome to be pretty generally realized and these facts are referred to to show that Mr. McKee is not a weak oandi. date because ol his temperance views. He will get hia party vote on that issue. McKee aerved four and one-half years in the poetoffice and his record {Or efficiency and attention to duty could not be improved on. His experience in this respect is somewhat similar to that of the present Mayor who went from the poatofflco to the Mayor's chair, a year or BO intervening. He has the ability to grasp the situation; he has the force of character to make the administration marked and he proposes to give his entire time and attention to the city, if he shall be chosen. He stands squarely on the Republican platform and will oppose the natural gas and other monopolies. George W. Fender came to Logansport an actor, and strange enough the play was Musselman's "City Council," which caricatured the Logansport City Council, and had a run of a hundred nights or more. After that he engaged in business of one kind or another until sixteen or eighteen years ago when he waa elected Justice of the Peace, a position he has since, and now fills. Ho has never been an active worker In politics, but has always been anxioua to accept the rewards for the active work of others. He la a leading member of the Elks, of the Odd Fellows, and of one or two other orgnnlzatlcna. His position on public questions will largely be controlled by hla close political associate!, J. C. Nelson, Kufua Magee and B. F. Louthain being about the only ones. With the members of his party generally he has no dote political relations. On the gas question he remained a firm friend of the old company after almost every one had condemned It and he became a late signer to the present company. He was nominated In part by the opposition to Mayor Read's silocn policy and is expected to gain support on that account. Whether he will be elected and fulfill expectations In this respect remains to be seen. These »re the two leading candidates for Mayor. Both have about the flame business ability. Their record will depend largely on the Influences thrown around them. The Journal does not hesitate to urge the support of the republican nominee. THE democrats seem to have con- eldered seriously the suggestion that Councilman Boyer was ft hypnotist and has sought to make the council more entertaining by adding "Billy" Eeed, the old circus man and George Fender, the actor. It waa a mistake not to have nominated "MoStlnger, the baritone linger." THE DEMOCRATS HAVE ' FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.— Pharoi, May 6th. 1893.

ICOl'VlilfiflT, 1894.^ No event in the history of odd fellowship has buen prepared for on the scale of the celebration which comes off in Baltimore on the 2C,th of this month. It is the seventy-fifth anniversary of the order. And, although a jubilee has been arranged, care has beentaUen to eliminate all features in connection with it that savor of the' perfunctory merely, so that in some respects the commemorative services will be impressive, apart from their inherent character. The branches which will be officially represented include, to pfive tho legal titles, tho encampment branch of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Rebecca lodges, the chevaliers of tha patriarchs militant, in addition to an unofficial sprinkling of the membership of the grand lodges of Austral- asia, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark. The American membership, as distinguished from the foreign, is some eight hundred thousand, and these Ug- urcs will give some idea of the magnitude of the coming celebration. Every GEOROE j. officer of the sovereign grand lodgh has been working' for weeks past in the perfection of the commemorative exercises, which promise to be the most imposing series of ritualistic observances ever held in America, from the fraternal organization point of view. Grand Secretary Theodore A. Ross, stationed in Baltimore, has arranged the details, and the members have by this time become familiar with the order of exercises. The central feature of the occasion will be the services to be held at the Wildey monument, iu the old Maryland city. These will form, almost needless to say, such ceremonies as the odd fellows prepare for such occasions, with the added dignity of the presence JAMES O. MAflUIHB. of the high officials. Grand Sire C. T. Campbell, of London, Ont., last winter spoke of the importance of the gather- Ing 1 as distinguished from the next meeting of the sovereign grand lodge, which takes place at Chattanooga, Tonn., on September 17 next, and as a consequence every grand lodge has arranged to take part. The Maryland grand lodge, which, all alone, will have its ten thousand members in the celebration either as participants in the procession or as spectators, has set sin example which the rest of the country is following. New York promises to be heavily represented in numbers, which is natural, in view of the sixty- five thousand members tho statd has. From Pennsylvania will com'e other thousands. This state is'erecting an CHARLES II. MORGAN. immense structure as an odd fellows' hbmo, and tho Quaker City alone will have thousands of members at Baltimore. It is, of course, impossible to give the exact number of participants, but the indications are that one hundred thousand persons will assemble. As stated, the occasion will not bo marked merely by the conventional parades and speeches, although those features with tho marchikgr hosts and the bright regalia, will form an imposing 1 spectacular feature. The mayor or the city officials will extend the omcial welcome, and the ceremonial portions of the exercises will be superintended by Grand Secretary Boss. Other eminent odd fellows, either acting or. represented, will be Deputy Grand Sire J. W. Stebblns, of I. ». J*< A. sncppn-J^l. of Philadelphia; Assistant (Jnind Secretary G. Coimrn, of Baltimore, who will have much of the work of registration and official recording on his hands: Grand Chaplain ,). \V. Veuablc. of Hopkinsvillc, Ky.; Grand Marshal '\Yalti:v O. Dye, and Grand Guardian J. S. Tyson, of Su- rannali, Ua. The, Peiinsylvaninns. representing 1 the state with the strongest odd fellowship following, will form the most conspicuous phalanx in the .demonstration, but to California has been ac- JOHN MEDOT.E. corded the honor of fnrnishing the orator of the day. lie is.Tames G. Mnguire, of California, the most prominent champion of fraternity in the United States probably. There will bu taken measures to effect an even closer union of the lodges on the continent of Europe with those here. Among the interesting features of the Baltimore celebration will be the receipt of cable greetings from Switzerland, Denmark, Germany and Australia, the grand lodges in those countries haying arranged to be in session during the continuance of their American brothers' jubilee and to send dispatches of felicitation. These will be duly spread on the archives of the American branch. The presentation of the status of the order will form one of the most interesting features of the occasion. To-day very few, even among odd fellows, are aware of the growth of the order itself or of the significance of its influence. The figures given as representing its growth arc always conservative, in accordance with the policy of the sovereign grand lodge, and the table below is the first and latest estimate of JAMES P. SANDEB*. growth of membership compiled since the celebration was officially undertaken. It has never before been made public. The last table of figures was made for the annual encampment of 1893, and those familiar with it can see, the growth represented, as the following figures have never been printed before: JCIUSniCTION MEMBKIIS.

It is not likely that so representative a gathering of American odd fellows will bo witnessed again for decades as this. No man of any prominence in the order will be absent or unrepre- seiSted. As stated, the exercises have been specially prepared and include not merely the general programme which is already familiar to every odd fellow in the land, but addresses of a special nature by the grand officers. Ample arrangements have been made for the accommodation of fraternal visitors to Baltimore, and the authorities have issued every necessary permit connected with the open air exercises. All that need be aslted now is fair weather,. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE JAPANESE PROVERBS. "A Woman Wlthont ,Te»loniiT I" Bull Without KlM*l«ltr'" A woman adorn* herself for one who admires her; a m»n will die for ono who understands him. A woman without jealousy is like a ball without elasticity. A gentleman will be careful not to Btop to retie hi« shoelace beside another's watermelon field. Stronger than a yoke of oxen is the drawing power of a single hair of woman. Even tho devil is interesting at seventeen years, as peasant's tea is fragrant at the first drawing. Unless blind and deaf one cannot be impartial. The dog chases out the quail, but the eagle claims it. A woman with a three-inch tongue can slay a giant. Patience is tho rope of advancement in all lines of life.. Tho bat, hanging upside down, laughs j at the topsy-turvy world, | The ignorant are never defeated in I any argument. I Before trying horseback one should leurn to ride on oxen. It is more easy to evade the trouble which heaven sends us than that which we bring upon ourselves. If the watar be too pure fish cannot live in it; if people be too exacting fellow-being's cannot stand besido them. With a mote in tho eye one cannot seo the Himalayas. The collector of mummies will in time be One. If the mind is clear, even in a dark room there will ba a radiance; if the thought is dark at noonday there will be demons. Be not lenient to your own faults; keep your pardon for others. When tho senso of shame is lost advancement ceases. Who steals goods is called a thief; who steals dominions a ruler. Sit in quiet and consider your own faults; do not spend your time in discussing those of others. It is easy to get a thousand soldiers, but difficult to find one general. A thousand-foot embankment will be broken by tho hole of an ant. Genius hears ono individual and then comprehends ten. Negligence looks at the battlefield, then makes its arrows. The fish which escapes from the hook seems always the largest. Give to the hero the jeweled sword; to the beauty, perfume. Where there are no birds the bat will be king. Seeking information in a moment'* shame, but not to learn is surely a lastr ing shame. In trying to straighten her horns the cow was killed. The beo stings a weeping face. Doubting minds will ever bring a swarm of demons. Proof is better than theory. The escaping warrior, after defeat, fears the trembling of the grass.
