Tho Journal has DO fight to make on any candidate because of ^hls regretted departure from rules that should govern personal conduct. Men are weak at best and where there ie an evident Intent to reform the mantle of charity should be thrown over the past. It has referred to Treasurer Hoffman's past personal record bocauee it was striking that he only of all the democrats should be ronominatod. It did not refer to him personally but to them tbat they should be unworthy of their party's indorsement. It is the' business record that the Journal criticises. That has been bad without excuse. That it should receive the indorsement of the democrats who made up the democratic convention is astounding. Laat spring J. C. Hadlfcy paid his taxes. After he had taken his receipt to his business house It struck him that the amout was unusually large. Ue looked up his previous roctipt and found it so. Ho figured on the levy and his assessment and found the amount too large. He took his receipt back and got $75 back. If this happened with him how many more has it happened with who paid smaller amounts and never investigated? How many have paid taxes when the duplicate showed one thing and the receipt another? When the cash is over the treasurer gets It. His books do not require him to account for it. Many citizens may have paid too much by similar mistakes. The books ought to be opened and examined. J. D. Johnston, of the Johnston hotel, was called on by the treasurer for unpaid back taxes. He said he had always paid his taxes but that he had just recently burned his old receipts and that ho supposed he would have to pay the amount again. He looked up his recelpti and found the one for the taxes he was asked to pay. Ho went to the treasurer's office and looked up the stub book. The stub book showed the receipt torn out but the stub was blank. The taxes were paid but the city did not get the money. Who got it? The Finance Committee ordered the delinquent list published a year ago. It desired that those who had paid but had not been credited should aee their names advertised acd be able to put themselves right. The treasurer put the matter off and finally on the last day under tho law said that he had not time to make out the list. This past year the Finance Con milteo rave three months notice, yet February passed, the legal month for advertising delinquents, and no Ust was made out. The same excuse was made It was generally supposed that so many had paid who were marked de. llnquent that the treasurer was afraid to make the list public on account of the amount which would have to be accounted for. Under this method of doing business no man knows whether he has paid too mubh or not, or whether, having paid he Is marked delinquent or not. The office has been managed so loosely that there is no certainty about it. The people want the books opened and corrected and it is right that they should. Tnere is a general demand for this, regardless of party, and the Journal cannot blame democrats for feeling this way about It. If they have paid too much' taxes or are marked delinquent they want to know It before their receipts are burned or lost. A Surprint) Party. Miss Cora Winters gave a very pleasant surprise party Monday even- Ing In honor of Miss Leah Woll, it being the latier's birthday. Progressive oroklnole was tho leading game. An elaborate supper was served and the guests departed at a late hour wishing Leah many happy returns of the day. Those In attendence were Misses Lizzie McGregor, Effie Groff, Cora Walter, Alice Eikleburner, Leah Woll, Cora Winters, Messrs. Harry Burgman, Charles Bridge, Oliver Wones, Walter Amos, Harry Tonoy, Tom Pedon. A Boy Forger. Charley Splcer, an 18-year-old East End boy was yesterday arrested and put In jail upon tho serious charge of forgery. It is charged that on last \Vednesday he bought a ball and bat at Hanna's store, the bill amounting to $1.40. In payment thereof he offered a check on the State National bank for $8.40 drawn in favor of Wm. Smith and signed "J-J. Kllgore, by the bookkeeper Dan Glllosple." Tho oheok was cccspted by Mr. Hanna who gave the boy $7 change. The check was returned from the bank as worthless. On Monday the boy bought a pair of shoes at Anderson <& Rani presenting in payment » check for $1?. 75 drawn M above. The check WM taken and the boy got his pockets again lined with change. Mr. Anderson suspected something wrong In connection with tho matter and began an investigation which led to tho arrest yesterday morning of the boy who had been too bandy with his pen. A few weeks ago East End merchants were swindled in a similar manner by Kllgore checks and the young man Is thought to bo the author of all the forgeries. THE CASE CONFIRMED. KILLED BY THE CABS. TUO Damage SulC of Catherine Barton vi tue r. C. Si, St. 1,. It. it. Company Affirmed by lue Supreme Court. Telegrams wero received here yesterday afternoon announcing that the Supreme Court had affirmed the judgment in the damage suit of Catherine Burton, vs. the P. C. & St. L. R. R. company. The original judgment waejfor $9,400. With accrued Inter- eat tho judgment now amounts to $11,092. On October 4, 1890 Thos, S. Burton of Jefferson township, waa killed' while crossing the Pan Handle railroad trnck at Royal Center. He and his little daughter wero starting to drive home from town in a driving rain. They had the side curtains of the buggy up and when approaching the track evidently did not BOO the oncomifg train which struck the buggy. Mr. Burton waB killed out right. Tb.o little girl was thrown some distance from the track and fortunately escaped without a scratch. In January following tho widow brought suit for damages against the railroad company and secured a judgment for $9,400. The case was appealed by the defendant company and waa yesterday affirmed as above. The judgment by this time hae swelled to $11,092. The attorneys for the plaintiff were McConnell and Jenkins B and Nelson & Myers. Now Who 1* s. s. wooill Wabaeh Plain Dealer: A lady at tbe ^JFabaeh depot excited the sympathy of persons this morning. She waa neatly dressed and was lady-like in her address. She stated that last February ghs moved to Loganeport with her husband, S. S. Wood who waa an insurance agent. He left her a few days ago without a penny. She had no friends In Loganaport and nothing was left for her but to try and get back to Jamestown, Pa., where she has a daughter living. Tbe woman told several persons that she had walked from Logansport to Peru and wae given transportation to Wabash. She applied to the trustee hero for aid and he claimed that he was not authorized to help her that she should have applied to the authorities at Lo- ganaport for aid. She got on the train hero Intending to go to Huntington and whether she did reach that point or not is not known. Tho number of spotters on the railroads make it dangerous work for a conductor to show his tender-heartedness oven to a eorrow-Btricken woman. He ia not able to tell when a spotter is on his track and even the sorrow-stricken Individual may prove to be the spotter. Mr*. Johnion Sue« the Mjcr» E«tatc, yesterday the attention of the court and jury was occupied in hearing the suit of Mrs. Kate Johnson against the estate of the late Cy Myers. The plaintiff, Mrs. Johnson, was Mr. Myei'B'housekeeper for about two years prior to his death, and entered a suit Kir $2,500 for services rendered during that period. The case was given to the jury last evening and a verdict will be returned this morning. The opening of the sale of seats for the Elk's minstrels at Patterson's yesterday morning was the most remark, able event of its kind In the history of the local stage.

The Body of an Unknown Found In the Dlicli Alongside tho ll«ll- rood Ea«tof Auokalfoterday Afternoon. Yesterday afternoon the section men discovered tho body of a man lying in tho ditch at the side of the railroad about two miles east of Anoka junction. Coroner Busjshn was notified and Undertaker Woll's men .went after the body and brought it to Woll's morgue where it now lies. It is that of a man probably 30 yours of age; about 5 feet eight Inches in height, dark complexion;smooth face, about two weeks growth of beard on a rather sharp cut face. There was nothing upon him to Identify him but a recoipt for threo months dues on policy No. 29,499 in the North American Accident Association of Chicago. Tho number of the receipt was A11,185 and was made out to U. J. Durham dated at Chicago March 1. Among various papers and cards in his pockets there was nothing- which would give a clue to l)ur- haras residence, although it might DO presumed from the fact that tho insurance receipt was made out in Chicas° tbat ho was from there. He had a pocket book which was empty and it is not unlikely that bo wns ono of the vast number of tramps which has passed through here lately, In one of bis pockets wera a couple of assorted "leads" and as hia body was lifted out of the ditch some type dropped from his pocket. In bis pockets were also samplos of sundry cards and other bits of job work which might Indicate that tho man was a pilgrim printer although that most prized of all possessions of a pilgrim printer, a union card, was not found on his person. The only clue to the man's identity was the receipt for tho insurance police which Is also a valuable asset of his estate, and acting upon this clue Coronor Busjahn communicated with the Insurance Association to learn something concerning- tho holder of Policy No. 29,499. Whether the man was killed by being struck by the train while walk ing across the track or whether he fell from a freight train while stealing a rldo may never bo known. His right leg was broken above tho knse and there waa a nasty gash on the top of bis head, which latter Injury might have caused death had the water in which be lay and which covered his head and body not drowned him. _ Deatb of Prof, mprnker'ii Mother, Kokomo Tribune: "Aunt Polly" Spraker aa she was familiarly known to all her old neighbors and friends departed this life at 2 o'clock Sunday morning after » long and very painful lllnees, of dropsy, at the homo of her sister, Mrs. Harriet Keisling, West Taylor street.

The congressional fight was begun two years ago and a new man had both of the old contestants to fight. This IB up-hill work and is rather discouraging-. Capt.
