It came from the Lake county circuit court yesterday oo alleged errors and the re' fusal to grant a motion for a new trial. The suit involves the ownership of the thousand acres of swamp land along tho Little Calumet river, in Lake county, which the gun club has for many years used as a hunting ground. Both parties to the suit claim possession of it, tho State under the swamp land act of 1850 and through a patent cf 1853, when tho government conveyed the property to the Stato. Tho dispute over Its possession ba?au four years ago. Several Chicago clubs havo hunting grounds in tho vicinity, which is marshy and a favorite feeding ground for wild fowl, Tho Tolleston Club has boon arbitrary In its sway ovor tbo swamp land, and has antagonized tho Lake county people, who have brought muny damafi-o suits against tho orpanl'/.ation. In fact, thoro havo boon murders in the vicinity growing out ot tho club's alleged arrojranco. Tho organisation hasfrufirded the land a loc£ time' to prevont poaching. Tho town of Tolloston Is but a fow miles from iljo Tollcston Clubhouse, which had a "boom" long years ago, but tho rrun club smothered it because it interfered with the sport.

(1) In a complaint by the widow, as administratrix, to recover damages for tha negligent killing of her bus- band, it la not necessary to allege that she was free from contributory negligence therein. (2) In such complaint an allegation that tho docendont. a traveler upon a highway approaching and about to enter upon a railway crossing, was "was unable to see or hear any engine or train of cars in motion on account of certain obstruction, does not overcome the general allegation of his freedom from contributory fault. (3) It Is not the duty of the court or jury, stating tho facts specially, to state the failure of one who assumes the burden of an Issue to establish a fact. The failure to state the existence of the fact Is equivalent to finding the non-existence of it. (4) The maximum amount that may be recovered for the death of a person, caused by a failure of a railroad company to give tho signals required by sections 5,307; 5310 R S. 1894. Is $10,000. The latter flection, 5310, placing 1 the amount •J5.000 was repealed by Implication as ;o the amount of recovery by Section 28.1, R. S. 1894.

A press dispatch from Springfield, 111., says: "Conductors employed on the Wabash Ralroad belonging to the Order of Railway Conductors hftd a meeting behind closed doors tonight. The proposed reduction of wages of Bremen, engineers, and trainmen were discussed, but nothing oould be learned from any of them as to what they had decided upon. Ii seems the Wabash •facials have deviated from the regular custom In reducing wages. About two months ago they re- ducod the shop men and this new order does not affect the switchmen, thus handicapping any united olTort by tho employes. It is not generally believed that thore will bo a strike. la speaking with a prominent mombor of the firemen's organization tonight, he said: "I don't believe tho Wabash men will strike. In case they do it will not bo a united etrlko, as I believe the engineers won't go out. The engineers aro men raised ri^ht on tho Wabash and are afraid of tho hard times." He added: "I believe if tho Wabash ofllclals will pledge their word to restore wages when business picks up, harmony can be restored." SERIOUSLY IIUKT. Henry Kadkoy a helper employed in tho Pan Handle blacksmith shop, mot with an extrom'.y painful and serious accident yesterday morning. Apiece of Iron Hew from under one of the etoam hammers and struck him in tho groin with such force aa to almost rorder him unconscious. He had strength enough to walk home but upon arriving there he was taken violently sick and at last accounts was still in great misery. Mr. Radkey resides just below Hamilton Heights. Geo. Strahle of the Pan Handle round house celebrated his 58th birthday anniversary yesterday. In the evening he gave a reception to a party of his friends. General Manager Jos. Wood and General Superintendent J. F. Miller arrived in the city yesterday on train 21 and left Immediately on an Inspection tour to Effner. The rumor that the Monon had cut the wages of train men ten per cent, has been confirmed, the order effecting all employes in the transportation department. The men do not take very kindly to the reduction but do not threaten and no trouble Is expected. Harry Miller, superintendent of the Vandalla main line, will occupy as offices in St. Louis, the rooms formerly used by Col. Joseph Hill, when general superintendent, and N. K. Elliot, general superintendent, will take rooma In the new station at Torre Haute. Freight traffic on the Pan Handle has gradually decreased in the last fow days until at present there Is but little freight moving, This, together with the fact, that on account of the good weather but few men are laying off makes It bad for the extra men who find It hard to got along. Tuesday another bad wreck occurred on tho Pan Handle this time near Greenville, Ohio, east of Richmond. A backing train collided with another running in the opposite direction destroying tho caboose and ditching tho engine. Tho entire crew jumped and saved themselves. As was expected tho railroad brotherhoods do not sanction the A. R. U. strike on the Groal Northren and wiU not co-operate with the latter. Chief Engineer Arthur and the other chiofs havo ordered such of their men as weot out with the A. R. U. to return to work under pain of expulsion as they were violating their obligations. The grievance committees of the various brotherhoods represented on the Wabash including every division will convene In Dscatur next Sunday ;o consider whether or not to accept tho ten per cent, reduction. When questioned about a strike trainmen are very uncommunicative and try to evade, an answer. A strike la hardly considered probable however. Since the headquarters of the Michigan Division of the Vand&Ha have been established here the train crews have their lay-overs here Instead of at Terre Haute. As quite a number of tho train men live in that city it will be necesiary that they remove their families here, which some of them are thinking of doing In the near future. The American Railway Union promoters or agitators, It Is stated, are using their beat efforts to induce the trainmen on the Chicago & Eastern [llinois to strike against the proposed reduction In wages. The firemen on tbatroai voted almost unanimously 10 strike, and It IB theie men the union IB seeking to Influence. The conservative members of the old, brotherhoodi, it is stated, are not particularly susceptible to the solicitations of the members of this new order. Cornelius Vanderbllt and Chauncey M. Dopew, in company with John Newell, president of the Lake Shore road, were given a fast ride on Monday afternoon. The train sheet shows the following time made: The run eastward to Erie, a distance of ninety- flvo miles ard a half from Cleveland, was made is ninety.five- minutes, In- eluding? a four minute atop at Ashtabula for water, making the tokal running- time for the ninety five miles, ninety-one minutes. From Collln. wood yards an eighty-eight mile run was made in eighty-two minutes in. eluding another four minute stop. From Collinwood to Saybrook, a distance of forty-two mllea, was made in thirty-Blx minutes, or at a rate of seventy miles an hour. The run from Klngsville to Dock Junction, thirty- three miles, was made in twenty- eight minutes, or a a rate ol seventy and Bovon-tenths miles per hour, tho fastest time ever made on that division of the road. An Echo ol n Itooill. InOianapolia Journal: Judffo Winfield. Judge Dykeman and Goorgo Tabor, of J,o<jans|>ort, and Judge Mitchell, of Poru, are registered at the Bates. They como here to argue a well known case in tbo Supremo Court this morning. It is that of William W. Huntington, of Minntapc- lis, against William G. Metzgcr to recover $-.25,000 on a mortgage which tho latter is claimed to havo assumed in tho purchase BO-voral years ago, of a tract ol land on Lake Minnotonki, near Minneapolis, Metier and a man named Wilson bad a groat "boom" Boherno on and bought about two hundred acres of land up there, the former agreeing, it Is charged, to assume if25,000 mortgage which was on his half of the property. They laid it out in town lots, and everything- was ripe for the "boom" harvest when something struck it and away it went Wilson seems to have dropped out of sight, but the deal brought Metzger plenty of trouble, for tho litigation over the alleged assumption of this mortgage began three years ago, and is now in the Supreme Court, after two rounds in the lower courts. The above-named attorney i repre sent Mr. Huntlngton's interests, while L. H. Blsboe, of Chicago; Nelson Meyers, of Logansport, and Attorney General Smith arc the attorneys for Mr. Metzger, who formerly lived at Logansport, but is now a resident of Chicago. Tho suit was first tried in Cass county, where Metzger got 8 verdict, but a new trial was secured from a nUl prius judge and a change of venu taken to Miami county, whore Huntington was awarded his claim in full, with costs, altogether over $26," 000. Then the defendant appealed to the Supreme Court, where the case will bo argued this morning. Metzger claims ho did not know of tho exist, enco of this mortgage when he bought the Lake Minnetonka property. President Harrlcon to Speak. Ex-President Harrison left San Francisco yesterday and will reach Indianapolis intltna for the Stato Convention nsxt Wednesday. He will make a speech there which will bo of great national fame and which will sound the key note of this campaign. The convention promises to be of great interest and as so many Cass county people havo expressed the intention of attending tho Journal has decided to arrange for a special train and a very low rate. It asks all thinking of going to leave their names at the Journal office today so that some idea of the number may be gained. It is important that this should bo done today for upon today's figures estimates will bo made. Harnei-Porter. Yesterday evening at 4:30 o'clock, at the Broadway M.

Some Old TlmeKemlnUeeniteii WIU liec.tl the "Good Old !>«>•" to the Hardy Plo< cer In bis closing "Old Time Reminis- censes" Dan McDonald, tho veteran journalist of tho Plymouth Democrat. treats thus of tho hardy pioneer: The Indians baring passsed away, •'like the .baseless fabric of a dream," a new era in tho history of this section was marked. When the pioneers came, there was nothing here but a wilderness. No evidences of civilization wore to be seen anywhere. Telegraphing had not then been discovered, and there wasn't a railroad within a thousand miles in any direction, and al that time there was not oven a stag's lice within forty miles. With tho coming of white people, clossly followed the '•Pony Express Mail Carrier" once a month, then weekly, acd tri-weekly, and 60 on. You remember, those of you wlio wero here then, when an occasional Now York, Philadelphia, or Baltimore papor strayed out thla way, you would look for thu cut of the pony express to soo what time tho mail was scheduled to leave tho n.-ist f^r tho west, and what tiir.o It would bo duo at Pittsburg, Cincinnati nr.d Indianapolis, and the prolHiblocfaia of i:s arrival here. You remember now fitSl tbat mail carrier scenied to he going. The pony was running at full t-pocd. The mail carrier was bent forward at :in anglo o! forty-livo degrees, and was heralding his approach by the blasts from his lin horn. But i:a tiicl not make half a» rapid hoadway as he up- po'ired to be making. Most of the road ho had to travel over was through the wilderBess, aud bo/oro he i cached tho ond of his journey te mat with nnanv a mishap that delayed him for hours and days. Tho leuer* hs brought were writ ten on blue letter paper, with goose quill pone, 'olded in the form of our present envelopes, (there were no envelopes then) and sealed wilh a red wafer, or sealing wax, mucilage being a discovery of a later date. Letter postage at that time was rated according to distance, 25 cents being the rate from the eaetern cities. Letters wero sent payable on delivery, and it Is easy to be seeo that the cumber that failed to reach tho parties to whom they were addressed, and consequently were sent to the dead letter office without the postage having been collected, was an immense loss to Uncle Sam. The Indians, their manners and customs and characteristics having been quite fully set forth in these sketches, the Inquiry may naturally be made, who wero tho pioneers who first settled this region and took the places of tho Indians after they final. ly left the country, and what were their habits, manners and customs. Those who first came here, or their parents were originally mostly from Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the coast States, and were of Scotch, Gasman, Irish, English and FrencU. descent. Upon the opening of the great North Western Territory of which this was a part, they began moving westward, and striking the Ohio river at various points floated down on rafts and boats of rude construction to various settlements, such as Marietta, Cincinnati, and other points where they could move out Into the country both south and north, The first settlers here wero from southern Oilio and Indiana, and northern Kentucky. Butler and Freblo counties Ohio, and Rush, Fay- otto, Franklin and Union counties in southern Indiana furnished nearly the entire Immigration tho first eight or ten years. No bettor claw of people could be found any place than wore tho first settlors In this county. They wore the cream of the settlements they had loft; resolute and determined; moral, honest, upright, and generally of a religious term of mind, and wer« social and neighborly In a degree that would put to shame tho average of those who make up the population in these days. Many of them wero fairly well educated. and all were endowed with whit IB commonly known as "good horse sense." Everything goes to show that. They laiJ the fouadatiom of our present county governmemt broad and deep, firm and solid. They began at once to build school homes, and provide places of worship; they built a court house and other public building*, and provided an asylum for the helpless poor. They chopped down the forests, plowed and sowed the ground; erected saw mills and grist mills, and brick yards, blacksmith and wagon skops: cut out and bridged, and made the roads paiii,- ble; established m»U routes and atage hnei; opened up facilities for trade and reciprocal intercourse if 1th melgh> boring towns and villages; elected officers who set the legal machinery to work, all of which fava ui the start that has brought us on and up to our present advanced stage of civilization. As we review the past, the form* and faces of these early pioneers— those who "blazed the way" through the almost imopscable wildernest— "in shadowy design." como up in vivid remembrance, and in their life's history present much that Is worthy of admiration and emulation. Leaving their early homes, and the scenes of civilization, witb an ax and gun, they weided their lonely way through the unexplored wilderness, until they reached the place where their future borne was to be. Here, among the wild men of the forest that were still bore when raauy of them came, the wolves and wild beasts of prey that infested the country, a wigwam of brush and poles was erected, a campfire built, and "the ax laid at the root of the tree!" There, in the lonely woodu, away from friends and family. the original pioneer labored, dny in and day out, clearing- n little "patch" of ground, nnd preparing a rude log cabin for the reception of his wife and little ones. Finally they camo, thinly clad in "home spun :) sick and weary from v.-eoks of traveling with ox teams over roads t.hat had to be made as they wont, breaking au axle hero, a tongue there; sleeping on tbe ground In the night air; lighting myriads of mosquitoes, ar.c) bruvinjr the storms that overlook them on their journey. Here and in this way. was the battle of life again renewed; and right manfully was i'. pressed to a glorious victory. Jlyiv the memory o! their hardships looms up as the past, like a pan- oroma, is sproad out before us! Ills woll those who are living here now, gathering the fruits of the toil of those early pioneers, cannot realize the suffering, and deprivation they passed through In forming and handing down the blessed heritage we now enjoy. Those were days that tested trua friendship. The question was never asked: • -Who is my neighbor?" All were neighbors. All were frlendi. And let us hope that the friendship* formed under eo many trying circumstances, In those early days, mayserva to cement the rising generation with the past, and that it may continue tot. for all time to come. 1100 Reirtrd, (100.
