THE NEW GAS COMr*ANY. Tho nuw },'a3 company will be a sue cocs il tho niockbolders stand togethe and (.'anitistly work for sucoeta Knouch bus been riiibscribtd to insur and tho payments thus fa thut all tho stockholders wll pay up. Tho gas territory secured and that that can be secured, Insure plenty of g&a territory, and under th State the right-of-way can be taken and paid for afterwards according tc valuation, if this be necessary. Then Is no obstacle In the way, and i' thi directors indicate that they have a heart the BUCOOBB of tha enterprise and tbe will ol the people Cthe reeul la certain. The situation calls for no display o personal feeling or personal ambition It is a plain business proposition an( must be treated accordingly. Friend ohlps must not oe considered, Rewards for effective work should not be attempted. The only question is sue C639, and success is dependent on united action and eelf-Baoradce. The attempt of the Pharca to create dissensions will fail. There cnn bo no dissensions when all work together Tor tho public good and lay persona considerations aside. The Journa has advocated a new company for over a year. In has been earnest and persistent i'n the work of organization and -when one plan has failed it has urged another. Tho present plan is a point where success -is certain and there should bo no wavering. Any one of a hundred citizens who could be named Jean lead to success. Tho Journal has no candidate and asks only that the will of the people bo considered. It would bo glad to honor personal friends but this can cut no flgure. It is success that must bo considered and tbe united will of the people must prevail. THE now council meets tomorrow- night for organisation. Every mom- ber recognizes the responsibility placed upon tho Republican party and the council will be a faithful one. The affairs of tho city will be con. ducted on strict business principles and economy will be the watchword. This does not mean that necessary expenditures will not bo made but that whatever must be expended will be expended In a business-like way. THE Kokomo Tribune puts a new phase on the McHugh law. It says: When Senator McHugh, oj Lafayette, got his bill through the lofrisltt- ;uro to continue all tho old city coun- ills in office one year longer, so that -he Lafayette natural gas company might got in its high ratos ordinance trough tho old council which it controlled and escape the wrath of the jooplo, ho unintentionally performed i valuable service for the RopublU :ans of Indiana. Tut; injunction suit brought by tho ilectric light company shows that that monopoly dies hard. Its five years lontract expires January 1st next and ho city should have tho new plant omploted by thi«t, time. Tho city jan pay all expenses by tho sale of private lights and save $10,«00 per 'ear now paid for streetlights. THK city election is over and clti- ens can now turn their attention to ho new gaa company. It is in splen- [id shape and success is assured if the people take hold of the project ener. ;otlcally.. ^^^^^^^^^^^ TIIK complaint about the postofflce management is universal. The new cors have bad time to get down to business and there ia little excuse now or tho condition of affairs. THK new gas company must and will 10 made- fl success. Its prospects nevor wore brighter and tho citizens hould tako hold with renewed energy. COXEY'S commonwealers seem to are struck the prevailing gait at Vashtngton and ore now busily en. gaged doing nothing. BAB AND ART, Tlio Well Known Correnpouaeut Brine" to Unlit Some Intcrcntliiit Facts Kei;nr<llii« Woman ArtlHtH • aud Their Work, SpBCUi) Correspondence). NKW YOKK, M;iy b, 189-1. When she said art, I shrugged my shoulders und liBluned_with the air of one bolcp bored. 1 had BUflared agonies of boart and brain Irom badly painted pictures, (romovor-ornambnt- od ornaments, from banged out brass, from queer things done with pokora and queerer ones done with pencils, all brought to me under the name of art, and because I was a woman, and because the creators of those awful things were also women, I was expected to approve of them. I was aaked to buy a bad picture because it was painted by a woman who was poor. That is usually the argument. Now, if a woman was poor, and aaks for money It is charity to e iv e Itto her ; but if she makes an effort to sell you something in the way of a picture, and claims to be giving you value received, and th&t picture IB poor, the whole affair is a cheat. Consequently when art and women have been mentioned to me there has always arisen a procession of cups and saucers, of painted ribbons, and generalizing of poor work, So you can't blame me, If, when she said art, I looked bored and felt so. But a minute after I heard tho word "practical" and then I grew interested. She said, "Will you go?" And I said. •Yes, fora few minutes." And I stayed two hours and a half. WOMAN'S INTEREST IN ART WORK. And now lor my story- There is a gentlewoman here who has done, in a quiet way, a something- that means much to women who wish' to earn their own living honestly and honorably (and by honorably I moan giving value for value received), She came here, like so many good things from out of tho west. She ia more than good to look at, for she ia extremely pretty, and has great dark eyes in which one may discover that quiet determination that belongs by right to all women who mean to succeed. She had seen how much of woman's work in tho art world had boen poor. She recognized that this was because they were not properly taught in the beginning, and because their work instead of being put in the market and getting l\e real worth, had been overvalued by kind friends, who, when they grew weary of opening their purses loft the unfortunate worker to believe either that the work was not properly appreciated, or to realize, which, alae! they seldom did that the work bad no worth. Now this gentlewoman saw that ;horo were women born with a genius 'or form and not for color; that there wore others who could combine color and form, and that there were still others who could unite imagination with the form and the color. So she set to work to found a school that should bo self-supporting, and in which women who needed to earn ;heir bread and butter should be taught how to do work that would )ear the hallmark of success in. the business world—it would sell. Not to the sympathetic friend, not to the haritable millionaire, but to the dealer who simply demanded that the work should bo good, and wasn't in- ,orostod in knowing whether it was done by a woman or a man. Do you :now what this work meant? It meant, on tho part of tho gently bred woman who did it, the giving somo- hing more thao her money; although ho was generous with that; it meant ho giving of hfir time; not just an lour or two a day. but tho hours of he day from 10 in tho morning until i In tho afternoon. But she did it, ind now sho has made a success of ier work, such a success that women Ike the Princess of Wales and Priness Christian have said to her, when hey met her socially. "Come to us and teach us how to start a school ike this where women can be taught o earn money in a way that is purely omanly and yet do work that has no ex because it is good, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I SAW. I saw girls working designs for wall Daper. There was the sample for the oiling, for the walls and the frieze, .•bile on eaoh side of the paper was hown the colors employed, giving the xaot limit allowed by the manufao- urer. Many of these girls were BO xport in their work, ao correct, and Ithal so artistic, that the beat decor- tor in New York is given a first hoice of the designs, because he has ound so many of them desirable, and, comes the practical side be- auee he pays (rood prices. J saw iris and women who having grasped he ter-.hnlque of thoir work, revelled n color and were making designs in which the shades of tho most conspicuous, that eveloped In rug«, in some instances, in Orient were were to be draperlea, and, tilea. Not one of a line that the manufacturer would find impossible. They knew what tho machines govern, and nothing waa on tbe paper that wasn't possible in warp and woof. I saw dainty book covers, ones that had been eold, and which had evoked my admiration as I road the pages between the bindings, although I never dreamed that tbe dainty scheme of coloring and the clever artistic touch as H bore iis relation to tho story, had been dono by women. MOST MAltVJJLOUS 0V ALL that afternoon I saw the work of women, to whom color was as nothing, but to whom straight lines, and the after development meant much—I mean the work of the architect. And as 1 looked at it. I thought, "Why shouldn't women make good architects P They live much more than men do in houses. They know when a staircase is badly placed, when a room might have had another window in it, when the nursery should have been placed in tbo sunshine, a'nd all tho kitchen arrangements made most convenient. They know what the bad disposition of pipoa mean, and why shouldn't they learn how to draw tho deslgas that will eventually bo the bud of that most boautlful flower— the homeP Bye the-bye, from out of the West has come tho order to this school for a great kospltal—and the best scholars in tho class ot architecture are competing for this. Said I, ae I looked at the class who were working at carpet-designing, ••Who teaches these women?" And the answer was, "Men," The very best men teachers that can bo gotten- They are making them understand that that work IB of no value which is not practical. They are teaching them that it must bo line upon lino, that it must ho what the dealer wants, and that sentiment does not enter into it. Perhaps in time women may bo the teachers, but just now we have men, because they know tho moat, and we want the scholars to gain the greatest knowledge and so make thoir work most salable." PRACTICAL AKT SCHOOLS. I wonder If you can comprehend, my dear general woman, what seeing this school meant to me? If your heart had ached as mine has at having to refuse to buy bad work, or weak work, simply because it was done by a woman, you would know what it meant to understand that there are women who ore learning that work is only of value according to the money it will bring, Irrespective) of eex Unfortunato'y, there are thousands o1 women who must work. When they haven't boon paid as much as men, it has been because thoir work was not as good as man's. It has been because tfcey do not think it necessary to commence at tto beginning, and yet when they wanted to learn to road, they had to start with the alphabet. The American man, the American nation at large, has been too prone to pat woman on the back and compliment her for bad work, and we are now seeing the consequences. She believes too often that her work should be bought merely because sho is a woman, but, please goodness, she is going to have that idea knocked out of her head. Her heart will ache. Surely. But it will be a good lesson for her. and she will gradually comprehend that the market price is nol paid for work that Is done by the 'prentice, but by the master hand. WOMEN WHOSE WOUK IS IN DEMAND. I looked at the gentlewoman who quietly but firmly, managed .this good work and made it n success, and I thought of tho shrieking sisterhood who were howling for thoir rights. Here was a woman who said nothing at all about rights, but just wont in to straighten up some wrongs. She determined to make it possible for those women less, favored than she, who had to earn their livings, to succeed in it. She has proved that it is not necessary for them to do it in any but a womanly way, because onco their work is worth selling, there are plenty of buyers. It isn't Tom, Dick or Harry who enjoy the carpets, or tho wall papers or the draperloa. It is Mrs. Tom and Mrs. Dick and Mrs. Harry who know that on tho walls is wrought out in delicate tints tho story ef the birth of tho lotus as it goes from the bud to the blossom; that on tho floor 'the rug has the Egyptian colors skillfully inwrought; that tho stained glass over Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE the window is so marvelous in. it combination of colors, for it hints c all the jewels that ever were dreame of—BO why shouldn't women, wit their brilliant imagination?, wit their keen eense of color, draw th designs for the beautiful things tba other women enjoy. Surely that I womanly work. A thousand time more womanly than trotting aroun Inducing one's friends to buy a chanc on a painted placque that is bad) done and which is a pleasure to nobody. To mo, who have seen s much of the work of women THE CHEAT THING IN THIS 6CBOOL is, that tho work from tbe very begin ning is practical. It is not done fo pleasure, though that, of course, ma enter into it, as it does in all goo work, but it is dono to sell. By the by, I must eay right here that o entering, each pupil pays £50, an . . a ' ter l 88 600n aB ^ P ° grossed far enough to draw oorrectl an original design for wall paper carpets, for silks, or cretonnes calicoes, for rug-8, or for book covers and that design is approved of by th teacher, it is put on vhe market, an whatever it brings is handed direct! to the worker. And the market doe not moan any semi-charitable institu tion: it means that tho designs ar put directly In tho band the manufacturers, and tha they stand thoir chance, as doe every other one according And tbe woman who ha ns their merit. dono it all? Mrs. Dunlap Hopkin It meant nothing to her except tha great something, tbe teaching wome tho practical side of art work. Now this lady can look at her work am fool glad. There were dark days, an< days when discouragement came, fo Mrs. Hopkins had determined tha tho school should be self-supporting Tho only thing it ever asks is this— If you have any booka, illustrated ones preferably that relate to tho his tory of art in any country, or tha will in any way help the workeri along, they will be gladly received foi the library. I think it took a gentle woman to create this school. Jt took just euch a woman as Mrs. Hopkins is to give to it that refined air of woman liness that should exist where women work, and it seems to me that you and J ought to be very proud to think that it is an American woman who has dono this, and that tho flower of English womanhood is saying to this repro sontativo of the best type of women in America: "Come and give us of your knowledge." PRACTICAL WOMAN'S \VOKK APPRECIATED. Enthusiastic? Of course I am. I have soon so much that is impractical In woman's work, that long ago I grew weary and came to tho conclusion that tho work of woman was too often mediocre, and, more than often.it resolved itself into talk. So that when I have seen, as I did that afternoon, work that was good, work that was practical and work that was womanly in its goodness, and without sex in its practicality, I am bound to bow down before it and acknowledge its full worth. I know you will agree with mo, and I know you will agree with me all the more, when I tell you that this work, in its two years of exist- once, has been done quietly, but always with that determination to succeed that is peculiar to a real woman, and is the attribute of a woman who has seen the mistakes of women, who are, after all, anxious to do what is right. Therefore if you are a mac, raise your hat in honor of Mrs. Dunlap Hopkins, a woman who realized how women needed to bo taught at once their weakness and Jaeir strength; how they required to be made to understand that good work stands whether it Is dono by a man or a woman, and in paying this tribute to ,he gentlewoman who did it all, you till greatly please BAB.
