The overturns in Indiana Tuesday, it sij-s, have nowhere a parallel this your of demo, ratic rorersos except io Now Jersey. Mo'-o than sixty cities, usually more than hulf democratic, hold ek-ctionst Tuesday nod not over a half dozen (if them tbow democratic ascendency. Local Issues and controversies entered Into some of the comosis, but these usually atToct oae party na much aa another; but on Tuesday It was the democratic policy which has paralyzed business, destroyed employment and brought Ions or want to many thousands that the people were determined to condemn, and they did it.j;.;As a whole, the democracy baa gone down in Indiana aa a party has never beer. Bubmerged In this State. Cities which have nerer had Republican Mayors elected them on Tuesday.. Cities which for a generation have had a succession Of democratic councils broko that succession this year. Every democratic Senator and Representative living In a city voting on Tuesday received a pecial stroke; but the protest of Senator Voorhees'a city was tho loudest and most angry. Victory involves responsibility. In power in most of the cities In Indiana, tho Republicans elected and those who have influence should see that tho people are given intelligent and clean administrations. The offices aro few, and but few people can be rewarded by their bestowal, but thoro Is not a citizen so humble that a judicious management of municipal affairs and an Intelligent enforcement of the laws and ordinances will not be to bis ad- van ago. No city can lon£ be prosperous with a defective and wasteful management of municipal affaire. In no other way can the republicans in cities retain the advantage which they gained in Tuesday's elections. Wo now have throughout Indiana the long sought but never hitherto attained opportunity of proving the superiority of tho Republican party for tho management of local affairs. Lot us make the most of it and thus perpetuate party ascendency. *sam PtSSBQESS LEMC LOGANSPORT »itl BOUHDi Mw-York Kiprew, dally ............. 2 : ,i5 Rm Vt Wayne Aeon, i exept fluidity .......... 830 am t«D City it Toledo Zx., exopt SaiwW 11:16 a »i Mlratlc Kipresi, dally ................. 4:57 pro leoommtxmtlon toe East ...... - .......... 1:15 p m W18T BOBHD.T *»aifloXxvieM,clMir ...................

He did this to keep himself in office as City Attorney of Lafayette. To do this he postponed the city elections from 1893 to 1894.

' ' Ax exchange gays: To tho extent that Democratic Senators have been dilatory In enacting a needed reform and settling a question which must be settled before there can be a complete recovery from tho par. UB'I paralysis of the lastjoar, they are responsible for democratic reverses. That they are renponsiblo for democratic reverses Is largely true but matters will only be made worse by the adoption of the Wilson bill. ('Spcchil Washington Lcuer.) Von can have ;:o idea bow many books yniir UncK- Sanuicl has, unless you can come to this city and sec them with ynnr own eyes. I do not now refer to the almost numberless tomes in tho congressional library, but to the thousands of volumes in tho executive department. In the department of justice, ordinarily for many years called the cxt- torney general's ofllcc, one would naturally expect, to find law books covering all points of national, international and interstate law; but you would be surprised to see what un extensive miscellaneous collection is also kept in that department. There arc 20,000 law books in the library, which is regarded as second only to the congressional library in its numerical collection of works of legal lore. The creative impulse was given to the law library in the early '50's by Attorney General dishing. In the settlement ol controversies over the California land i cases which came into our courts after tlio acquirement of tho Pacific coast territory as a result of the Slcxican war the attorney general was obliged to send an agent to Mexico to purchase a full collection of the law books ol that country. That collection formed the nucleus of the present library which is constantly growing. For several years congress has made anuuul appropriations of 83,500 for the purchase of new books. The library of the war department is a very heterogeneous aggregation. It originally consisted of the reports of army oilicers, tin; annual reports of secretaries of war, the reports of tlio adjutant general, surgeon general, inspector general, quartermaster general, commissary general, paymaster general and other bureau officials. Works on the art of war, histories of generals and of great conflict.* were added, until during the administration of Gen. Grunt, when Gen. lielknap was secretary of war, law books, novels and miscellaneous literature were added. About ten years ago Davitl Fitzgerald was appointed librarian. He entered the arena of chaos and reduced it to order. 1 Ic catalogued the books, repaired old ones, bought new one.s and gave to the work all of the cncrg-ie.s of u strong mind well equipped by experience and literary acquirements. In the new war department building ho secured very handsome quarters for his priceless and beloved treasures, and to-day the war department library is truly a thing of beauty and excellence. The clerks of this department arc nearly all o! them good readers, and they have the use of the library without expense to themselves. Hence tho books arc in constant circulation, all of them being carefully accounted for by the librarian. The department of state has a library which is not of general interest, because the books upon its shelves relate mainly to the diplomatic service. These volumes are consulted constantly not only by the officials of the department of state but by the diplomats of foreign countries who reside hero. Each book- is valuable, and no one of them could be replaced except nt a cost of hundreds of dollars. They are printed in every language spoken in the civilized world, and their pages contain facts and precedents in the history of diplomacy. The state department library, owing- to thc'sagacity of Thomas Jefferson, was organized by a resolution of congress in 17M. So you see it in as old as the federal government itself. This congressional act stated that an appropriation was made ''in order to provide (Jic secretary of rtate witii such books us were necessary,'' liver library of the interior department, contaiuing many standard works, but as'in the case with all libraries intended for general use, iiction is larg-i.-ly represented. Under the efficient management of theliljrurhih this collection of books has grown in interest, and each year additions aro made which tend to increase its usefulness. Tho works of the loading novelists arc found upon its shelves, This feature of the library lias not beeij developed at the expense of the other departments of literature, for here may bo found tho writings and speeches of nearly all American statesmen, translations of the classics, poetry, philosophy, books of travel and works relating to American history. There arc many books which are "valuable, and even rare, and which during the forty years that the library has lieen in existence have collected by.degrees on tho shelves. This is a circulating library, and is intended mainly for the use of the clerks, very many of whom are ladies. There jiru upwards of 200 books taken out each day, so you HOC it is quite a popular collection. Tho various bureaus of the interior department have separate libraries of their own, intended for consultation on public matters. The general land office, the pension ollice, tho patent office, the Indian office have books on land laws, pension laws, patent laws and Indian affairs. These great offices are parts of the Interior department, but their Highest of all in Leavening Power:—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE CLASSIFYING TUB BOOKS. A SINGULAR coincidence in the vote Tuesday is shown by the official returns. McKee got 1789 votes, Barnett 1789 and Winters 1788.

Inasmuch as tin; librarian of this department is tho e.usuidiun of the laws of congress n.nd superintends thch-publication, and th.'it of all state papers, there arc tens of thousands of volumes under his direction which are not regarded as a part of the department library. Here also arc the records of the revolutionary wjir, and many manuscripts from the pens of Washing ton. Adams, Jefferson, Franklin and Monroe, including an original draft of the celebrated message of President Monroe statin? the attitude of this government concerning its relations with other American governments and foreign nations, known to our people and to the world as "the Monroe-doctrine." There arc, about 13,000 books In the j libraries are specialties, wholly separate from the department library. The post office department is gradually getting 1 a library, in spite of the fact that congress lias never made an appropriation, Vaiious clerks in this department have, from time to time, contributed books which form the nucleus for a library. Postmaster General Wanfiino-ker repeatedly requested congressional rucognitian without avail. lie, however, set apart three rooms on the top floor of the department building 1 and detailed a clerk to act as librarian; so that the books on hand aro now catalogued and tho library is gradually assuming' such proportions that congress will soon bo obliged to recopni/e it -and make adequate appropriations for its maintenance. There arc similar libraries in the navy, treasury and agricultural departments, and also in the geological survey, labor bureau and minor executive oiliccs, aggregating i« all nearly a quarter of a million volumes. All of tiiesc books aro accessible to the government emplo3 f cs, so you will understand that the department clerics who have literary appetites do not need to go Jiunjfcrins: and thirstiagr while the manna of letters and the living waters of scholarship are thus within reach of all. For official use, the department libraries arc exceptionally valuable, because they contain past decisions, precedents and historical memories, all properly indexed so as to bo ready for nso when official opinions arc to be promulgated by heads of bureaus or cabinet ministers. In the treasury department, for example, the volumes of opinions; of Comptroller Lawrence are in constant use. by the successors of that eminent oilicial, and by tlic law clerks in the various branches of tho financial department. The same may bo said to bo true concerning- the published decisions o£ (.'ommissioucvs of the g-eneral land oilico, of patents, of Indian affairs, although in a less degree than concerning the important opinions of Lawrence, In other words, when the fjovornmeiit. by OHO o( its accredited agents, decides a matter oi'- ficiully, it is important for the successors of that public oflicer for .ill time to knou- what the past decisions and precedents have been, so Uvj.t there shall be less likelihood of executive oflicers contradicting or overruling each other. Hence, these official libraries arc aptly termed "memories," for they contain and retain facts upon thoir printed pages which oujrht never tobeforpotteu. but which man unaided could not faithfully remember. SMITH 1). FKV. —IMron, tho French poet and satirist, wrote a whole book of epigrams against Des Fontaines, because the latter mutilated a complimentary mention of him made by liossc.iu. THE SCREW PATH OF THE SUN. Diversity of Syntomi* »nd Condition* Seen In the Unlvornt. It being settled that the sun's spiral path is at all points at right angles to the earth's orbit, it is easy to determine its present object point in th« stellar region. liut we do not know and may never know the inclination ol the sun's spiral path to the path of its central body; therefore, it Is not known in what direction tbo focal line of the screw path of the sun lies, because all scholars know that the threads of a screw never have the same direction as the axis of the screw. Consequently those who have conjectured that the sun, while apparently moving to a certain point in the heavens, has its central planet at that point, are in error, as proven by the simple principle of tho law of the screw. Sidereal registration has been determined from results without any knowledge of tho principles of planet movement, except that the planets of 1 this system movo round the snn, and I that orbits are ellipses. Opaqu* bodies I here move round what is termed a sun, j but we have no knowledg-c that opaque bodies movo round a star (sun) in any of the vast multitude of systems which lie far more remote from even our aided vision. It is beyond reasonable doubt that some of the double stars have such concentrie orbits that we can best presume they form with a central opaque planet a system. The statement that they are revolving round each other presumes that each star is in the center, and at the same time revolving round the other star. This absurdity is the result of'grappling with a mechanical movement without the knowledge of mechanics. No more absurd is this than to claim for a point in ether, or iv hole ia space, the power to deflect planets to form orbits. Algol furnishes us with information in this direction. Either this planet is mostly opaque on one side, it rotates round an opaque body, or an opaque body rotates round it. Either condition would produce the result observed, but as no planet is known to be partially light and partially opaque, most distinguished scholars hold that Algol Is moving round a central opaque body. liut as Algol at its maximum is of the second magnitude and a large body, the velocity to cause these changes in less than two and one-half days is incomprehensible, and the planets must be very near together. In any event, the results are an .anomaly as compared with any planet movement in this system. Many of the conclusions and conjcct- turos made in those far-oil' regions, without doubt, will have to be abandoned because of error; the .same as Newton's alleged system must be abandoned. Occult science makes slow progress; at one advance many grave errors are coupled with some fact The fact obscures the errors till scholars ol later periods tuount the steppingstones of errors, sift out the errors and continue to build on the facts. The demise of one school in error is necessary to the promulgation of fact, inas- tllc | much as but few will condemn an ab| sorbed error although the facts are before them. While Strnvc, Maadler and others determined that tho sun moved in space, they deceived themselves, and also Sir John Ilerschel, as to its direction and its velocity. Whether one law of planet movement exists through the illimitable universe is beyond human knowledge, liut under the law of universal diversit}'. if we could more cloarly see into the vast field, we could, learn much and have much to unlearn. There is nothing presented for the consideration of man which should be roucived with more caution than alleged conjectures in the stellar religion. From Dr. Dix is a sample oi conjecture as to tho population of systems. He guessed that iHJUiy millions peopled the "toon, and billions peopled other planets; e.von on the rings of Saturn he, presumed so many people there, that One must conclude tliat their numbers were like bees swarming, and they would haug in clusters. And he guessed that intelligences were travelling on comets with glasses, viewing the systems, and this under the head of "Christian Science;" and many wonder at such knowledge. ]?ut it is proven that most comets arc composed of a substance more ethereal than air, that the moon is devoid of water and air, and that Jupiter's surface is a burning, seething mass. The most we know is under tho law of diversity, that if there be intelligent beings elsewhere than on earth, they differ as tbc planets differ, and are, therefore, those of which -we can have no knowledge, notwithstanding 1 Mars has been searched for them. It.'is settled bv all observations of eminent scholars that planets are con*- gregate.d in what may be termed families of greatly diversified numbers, and. we say that their orbits are ellipses, because such is the fact in this system. liut this is not proven. A sound scholar would not state that other and unknown laws and widely distinct conditi ons do not exist in the far-off regions. In brief, such a statement. would be an attempt to limit crea.tive- power. — G. L. Chapin, in Chicago Inter Ocean. It Look* It is amusing to watch the green conductor trying to place a trolley on th» wire. To a practiced hand it is easy enough, but to the 'prentice it is a. work of woe indeed. One of these men found to his sorrow that it ih aot so- easy as it looks. It was at nig-ht and. the passengers were rudely disturbed, in thej>erusal of their papers by the- lights going out, and soon after their equilibrium was upset by the car coming- to a dead stop. There was nothing^ to do but to wait until the conductor replaced the trolley. He tried for some, minutes, but the festive wire eluded him. The trolley would bang againstj it in a tantalizing' manner and make tf fine display of blue sparks, but the vexation continued until the passengers- were becoming angry and had about' made up their minds to get out and walk, when a conductor of one of tli* long string of cars behind the stalled; one went to the rescue and adjusted) the trolley and tho tempers cf the passengers with the greatest ease imaginable.— Buffalo Express, - —An illustration of the severity of tho times is found in the fact that two London physicians lately advertised in a daily paper, offering SS.OOO to a man who would submit to an experimental surgical operation involving some risk.
