;uest from Chlca o, St. Loui, Toledo,
South lU'iul, Plymouth and Laporte.
The academy gymnasium of the Cul
ver Military Academy was a brilliant
scene Friday night. Over one hun
dred guests were present in response to
the invitations f the academy cadets
to attend and with the most excellent
of music, furnished byElbel's orchestra
of South 13end, the evening was spent
'mid the pleasures of a most delightful
dance. In addition tc the orchestra the
Kenwood Mandolin band of Chicago
was also present, having tendered its
talented services for the pleasure of
guests as a compliment to the academy,
and come without expense to the man
agement. It was unanimously compli
mented for its brilliant 'execution and
Leslie's Weekly was represented by
Artist 13. A. Atwater, who secured two
flash light shots of the ball room in one
of its most brilliant and animated
scenes and carried away two photo

To l'reveiit Collision. ,
A new arrangement for prevent in; !
collisions of trains in tunnels i.s at
present !eing tried in Germany. It con j
sists of a series of electric lights at -I
tached to the tunnel walls and elect re
ally connected with tin rails in such a
manner, that as soon as the train
reaches alight the latter is extinguished.
It remains thus until the train has pro
ceeded a distance of about loOO feet,
when it is automatically relighted.
The lo 'emotive engineer, on entering
the tunnel, can see, at a glance whether
the track is clear, and, if it is not, has
sullicient time to bring his train to a
stop. The arrangement, out side of its
automatic functions serves the tunnel
watchmen for the purpose of trans
mitting signals. This certainly looks
like a prevenative of tunnel accidents.

"Paul's Joiirnvv to Koine."
The lecture d. livered by Mr. Thayer
at the Presbyterian church Faiday night
was very interesting and entertaining,
and was delivered in a manner which
was pleasing to the heirers. Especial
ly the one point presented, of Paul's
trial before king Agrippi and his jour
ney to Borne. He also gave a graphic
description of Paul's trial before Caeser.
Mr. Thayer also gave a description of
the prison in which Paul was incarcer
ated, which was in the shape of an egg
so that a person could neither lie, sit, or
stand with any ease or comfort. Also
a vivid description of the palace of the
Caesors, the Appian way, the Colliss
eum and the Forum.
A hearty applause was given at the
close of the lecture which shows that
everyone was highly pleased and entertained.
and a few numbers by the band pre
pared those on board to enjoy whatever
came their way.
On arriving at Laporte headed by the
band and reception committee the
Knights marched down the principle
streets to the castle hall. The meeting
proper commenced at 2 o'clock, by
which time the large and handsomely
decorated lodge room was comfortably
filled. After the assembly was called
to order, and a song by a male quartette,
the mayor of the beautiful city of La
porte bade the visitors welcome in a

his heart was in the well chosen words
This was followed by more music and ad
dresses by Lieutenant Governor Ney and
Grand Instructor Hunt, wir; were down
on the program. These remarks were
followed by others among whom we
might mention, Hon. II. G. Thayer, who
under all circumstances is ready to elo
quently p )tray the inlluences and ben
efits of Pythianism. Brother Turner,
of Walkerton, also responded to a re
quest to talk awhile to the Knights,
while the speech making was ended by
a few words by Grand Prelate Peacock.
The crowning feature of the atternoon
session, was the music, prepared for the
occasion; ncrdo we feel as though we
had expressed the appreciation of the
Plymouth knights, if we did not make
particular mention of the part taken by
the Misses Poole and Higgins. While
the other numbers were excellent, the
musical numbers presented by these
ladies captivated everyone present.
Miss Higgins in a solo, caused a thrill
of profound veneration for the inspired
strains of sweet music she so ably ren
dered, and those of this locality at least,
would undergo another journey to our
sister city for an opportunity to hear
that same sweet solo rendered. After

Since the publication or an interview
mi the Turkish- Armenian question
with our distinguished citizen, the Hon.
W. B. Hess, by the Chicago Inter-Ocean
of last Tuesday there has been such a
demand for the published article that
we believe we are more than justified in
re-publishing the extracts given below.
Mr. Bess was Consul General at Con
stantinople in 188(J ll and is a recog
nized authority on current international
affairs centering in the Ottoman Em
pire. He said:
The situation is very critical. The
treaty powers are simply playing a game
on the diplomatic chess board for posi
tron. The policy of the Cleveland ad
ministration in not protecting Armen
ians who are Amerian citizens is alto
gether wrong. Ic has been an entering
wedge to despotism because it has per
mitted the Turkish government to rule
out anybody as a suspect. The
trouble originated in President Cleve
land conceding to the Turkish govern
ment tho right to exclude from the em
pire all "undesirable persons." Had the
Sublime Porte undertaken to apply that
doctrine under former administration,
under Blaine, or even under Freiing
huysen, the assumption would not have
been tolerated 'for a moment. They
would have carried out the long-established
principle of our government,
which is to protect naturalized Ameri
can citizens the same as native born.
I hold the treaty powers morally re
sponsible for the Armenian massacres
because under the Berlin treaty the
provinces were placed under the con
trol of the treaty powers and were prom
ised a better government under the di
rection of the Christians. Notwith
standing, things have been growing
worse and worse ever since. There is
no doubt in my mind that those powers
there will just dilly dally w ith this mat
ter until they can succeed in getting a
satisfactory arrangement and agreement
as to how the spoils shall be divided up,
and then whenever that is done it won't
take them very long to simply say to the
sick man to move across the Bosporus
or even the Euphrates or to perform his
obsequies outright. As a mater of
notoriety the Sultan holds his tongue to
day, in Europe at least, simply through
the jealousy of these six great powers,
and he knows that just as well as any
body. For instance there is in the Imperial
Ottoman IJank, an English institution
controlled by English capital, a notice
that it has loaned the Sultan si, 000,000
How thai bank, with its thirty odd
branches throughout the Ottoman Em
pire, would not, m my judgement, have
made that loan if it hud not been as
sured by the British government that
there was no imminent danger of the
dimeinberment of Turkey. And be
sides that, England and France hold a
threat amount of Turkish bonds, and
both countries have their own agents at
Constantinople to collect a portion ot
the revenue direct from the Turkish
government to apply upon the principal
and interest of the debt, not even letting
the money pass into the hands of the
Turkish ollieials. How would we like
lo have a foreign government run such
an agency in connection with our
1 believe the naval deniontration in
theBay ot Salon ica was not for the pur
pose solely or principally of compelling
the Sultan to accept those reforms.
When England got her war ships there,
those other powers got jealous, and
practically steamed up into Smyrna Bay
and rouud about to kind of watcri the
British union jack. It is all a bit of
ma leuvering for most advantageous
position. It is not at present to the
commercial and financial interests ot
the powers that the Turkish Empire
should be dismembered. The spoils are
recognized as a certain reversion.

prosperous we will become, and just
now there is a chance of securing a big

of Alexandria, Indiana, wants to move

a good place to build or buy a site and
wants to have a place where there will

Ule and a town where it can procure
plenty of buys to work in the factory.
It employs a force large enough tore
quire several hundred men and boys.
The company makes chimneys, lantern
globes and ware of that class and is a
wealthy one. If the business men who
want to see the town go ahead make
tne proper offers to the Lippincott
Company they can secure it for Pekin.
It has already refused to go to Alton,
owing to inability to secure boys enough
in that town. Our improvement asso

nocuous dessuetude and its work is nil,
but the Tazewell club recently an

The National Union, in the following
newspaper lines, says:
'To run a newspaper without occa
sionally publishing an item that is un
true or gives offense, is like running a
railroad without having smash ups and
accidents. It can't be done. No man
in the world is so much imposed upon
as the editor of a newspaper. Pushed
with work continual! lie must rely
upon second and third parties for in
formation as to the events that trans
pire. Frequently statements are le

these meetings is assured and there is
no doubt but great good will be acorn
An effort, we are informed, will be
entered into immediately to secure suf
ficient funds to proceed at once with
the work that is necessary to make this
association a success and it will devolve
upon our business nien to give it the
proper eneouragement. No one feature
is of more importance to a community
than a Young Men's Christian associa
tion, and as our people never do things
by halves, we will in a short time be
able to say that Plymouth has the finest

Judgre Hubbard Heilders an Important
leclttlou In the Circuit Court.
Judge Hubbard, of South Bend,
rendered an important ruling in the La
port circuit court Friday last, deciding
in the Blodgett case from Union Mills
that persons have a right to withdraw
their names from a remonstrance. The
board of Laporte county commissioners
refused a liquor license on the ground
that a majority of residents had remon
strated. Agitation resulted in the with
drawal of names from the remonstrance
commissioners held that the petitioners
could not legally withdraw. Judge
Hubbard reversed their decision. Val
duent'y discovered to be without
foundation in fact. If therefore, kind
reader, you find yourself aggrieved by
a statement in your home paper keep
the fact in mind. Do not "lly off the
handle" but go to the editor and ask
for a correction, and take our word
for it, nine cases out of ten, if your
case is just, you will be received like
a gentleman and the correction made
with pleasure. But, instead of doing
this if you go around blowing about
the editor and his paper, don't be sur
