Last Night'* Fire.
The drug store of Joseph K Perry, at the cor
ner of Washington ami Alabama streets, caught
fire last night about 10 o’clock, and was damaged
to the extent of between $l5O and S2OO. The
tire originated, it is supposed, from the explosion
of the oil store in the rear of the store, w ith
which Mr. Perry bad been experimenting during
the day. The flames caught in a cloth covering
bung to the ceiling, and almost in a flash the en
tire store was in a blaze. Fora moment it had a
decidedly alarming appearance. The tire depart
ment responded promptly to the alarm, however,
and after the burning ottbe cloth hanging to the
ceiling the. flames were soon extinguished. Tne
building, which is owned by Jacob Heims, is
damaged only slightly. Mr. Perrry’s stock is iu-
Blirediu eastern companies for $3,000.
A Knabe in the White House

There was seen yesterday at Messrs Knabe A
Co.’s factory a magnicent concert grand, just

of music, iu selecting a piano for the White
House, decided in favor of the Knabe piano as
Ills preference, and ordered accordingly the in
strument referred to. It is a concert grand, of
beautiful finish, in a richly-carved rosewood case,
and of superb tone an action—an instrument
worthy in every respect of the place it is to
occupy, it was shipped to its destination yes
terday.

THE POULTRY SHOW.
An Unusually Interesting Exhibition —A
Well Arranged Display—Some
of Its Features,
The annual exhibition of the Indiana Poultry
Association will be open to the public at the
Masonic Hall beginning this morning and con
tinuing until the 10th, Nearly all the chickens
have arrived and everything is in shape for the
show. The display this year will be finer than
ever before,and a much larger number of entries
have been made. With each year the exhibition
has been growiug larger, and it is now almost
imposible for the association to furnish the re
quisite accommodations. Every available inch
of space la utilized, and some of
the cages are crowded to double their
intended capacity. The spacious Masonic Hall
has become incommodious, aud, although it is
better adapted to the purpose than any other
building in the city, it does uot meet the require
ments for an advantageous exhibition. With its
present crowded condition there is hardly suffi
cient light to show the tine-feathered birds in their
greatest beauty. The exhibition is well ar
ranged, however, and i6 a magnificent display of
the finest fowls in the country. Over BUO en
tries have been made, and the exhibiters repre
sent every State from Massachusetts to
Missouri. The class * displays are
all better, and particularly so
in the Light Brulura and Plymouth Rock depart
ments. Among those who have made the most
noteworthy entries are W. C. Bhortrtdge, of the
Union Stockyards, this city; Joseph Pool, of
Greensburg; R. M. Roseucranz, of Hope; John
son Al (’arter, of Fowler; Messrs. Jones, Evans,
Miller and Laughliu, of Paris, 111.; Henry Bals

Shelbyville; A. C Fichle, of Charlestown; W. H.
Conner, of Wlntetrowed; Stanton & Wells, of
Greenwood, and Richard Nolan, of Park Lane.
The officers of the exhibition are: Hid Conger,
general superintendent; W\ F. Christian, com
missar}' superintendent, uud Dr. W. J. Elstuu.

The display will nave an extraordinary Inter
est to fowl fanciers. It is uot a collection of
many indifferently common specimens, with a
few fine ones, but all are good. In the light
Brahma department the display is larger than
ever before. The penciled necks and tails, with
the mistreated white bodies, which mark the

pure breed, are developed perfectly in a number
of the specimens. In* the department of the
Plymouth Rocks, the self-providing, independ
ent fowls, there are nearly 200 entries, Sid. Con
ger, of Shclbyville, having the largest number.
The display of game roosters is full,
and will li..ve a special interest
to many. Among the breeds repre
sented are the black-breasted, red. and red rile,
and there are some celebrated fighters among
the number. In the other departments the
varieties comprise the Asiatic White Cochin, the
Asiatic Partridge Cochin, the buff Cochin, the
French Houdaii, the. dark Brahmas, the black
Javas, the mottled Javas, the black and
wbit.e Leghorns, the white-crested black
Polands, the black Spanish, the black

! penciled Hamburgs, etc. Tne display of Cochins
lis quite fine, many of the specimens, only
five and six months old, weighing thir
j teen and fourteen pounds. The differ
j ent classes are each well repre
j seated. In the turkey department there are
j some maunifleent specimens, one of the most
• notable being a yonng gobbler belonging to Syl
vester Johnson, weighing thirty-eight potions,
j Tnere are a few geese and ducks ou exhibition,
i but their entry is not encotiruged, and very low
premiums are paid.
An incubator, which is now hatching chickens,
will be plnced In the hall for exhibition to-day,
and will be one of the features of interest.
Next Alouday the Poultry Association will
he'd a meeting for the election of officers and
transaction of general business. The exhibition
will continue until the 10th, and visitors will be
admitted at ail hours of the day, beginning this

ludiana was held in the rooms of the State
Board of Agriculture, yesterday afternoon, for
the purpose of organizing a State association for
the protection aud promotion of the interests of
the dairy. After calling the meeting to order
George B. Jaokson, T. P. Huughey and Dr. Levi

pointed, ou the motion of Mr. Connor, a commit
tee to confer with the State Board of Agriculture

Jersey cattle. The committee on permanent

Dr- George B. Loring, United States Commis
sioner of Agriculture, was present, and ad
dressed the meeting relative to cattle
breeding for dairy purposes. He satid
that he bad been a breeder of the
Avrshire for twenty-five years, ‘‘and had turned
his back on the Jersey breed, but had been badly
whipped ill the fight.” He spoke particularly of
tiie delicate organization of the Jersey cow, and
the dlffiulty in consequence of successfully
breeding them. The heef-produeing breeds, he
said, required sluggish habits ami good feeding
qualities tor taking on fat, while the dairy cattle
required more delicate qualities aud
bettei care. He thought the introduction of Jer
sey blood into the breeds of the dairy added
greatly to the market value of the products. He
spoke of the rapid increase of the dairy business,
citing as an instance that ten years ago there
were but 300,000 dairy cows in lowa, and now
there are 950,000.

THE MAYORS OF INDIANA.
The Heads of City Governments Meet
for Conference.
The Legislature to Re Asked to Alter Cer
tain Old Laws and Adopt
New Ones.
The mayors of the State met yesterday in
convention in the Council chamber. The pur
pose of the meeting, as heretofore announced,
is the adoption or measures for the alteration
and improvement of present municipal oodea
and rules of government. The method bv which
themeetiug is conducted is for the mayors to
preseut requests ami suggestions, as each city is
called by the secretary, and these are arranged
in proper form for presentation to
the Legislature. The morning session
was devoted chiefly to organization and
preliminaries, the convention getting down to
business with the following officers: Chairman,
T. C. Bridwell, Evansville; secretary, John L.
Pierce, Lebanon; assistant secretary. W. 8. Arm
strong, Kokomo; corresponding Sccretarj', B. C.
Kent, New Albany. The entire representation is
as follows:
Mayors, C. A. Zollinger, Fort Wayne; John L.
Pierce, Lebanon; T. W. Bennett, Richmond;
Arthur Bedloe, Washington; W. B. Relight, Vin
Kent, New Albany; L. F. Worder, Jeffersonville;
L. P. Boyle, Huntington; James P. Lyne, Terre

Armstrong, Kokomo: John H. Hess, Columbus;
D. W. Grubbs, Indianapolis; C. W. Stevenson,
Wabash; 8. J. Smith, Madison; Samuel Jaoobs,
Lognnsport.
Counclltnen—John Egger, Indianapolis; Joseph
Jackson, Laporte; AI. J. Bray and H. S. Bennett,
Evansville.
City Attorneys—Henry Colerlck, Fort Wayne,
and P. Meyer, Evansville; and Chief of Police H.
M. Diehl, Fort Wayne.
It was first thought advisable to refer all mat
ters first to a committee, and a motion was made
to appoint one of five. After an interchange of
views, It was decided to bring all business di
rectly before the assembly, and the motion was
withdrawn. An invitation from Manager Eng
lish to attend the performance ot the Harrisons
last night was accepted with thanks. An invita
tion to take a ride on the Beit road was also ac
cepted with due appreciation, and Mayor
Grubbs and Couucilmau Dowling appointed a
committee of arrangements. By motion, it was
decided to call a roll of cities, that all
matters worthy of consideration might
be presented by the representative of
each without confusion or con Diction, and Ev
ansville suggested that the city attorney, street
commissioner and city surveyor should hold
office on identical terms with other officers. The
convention manifested disapproval by voting it
down. Adjournment was then effected until 2
o’clock.
Evansville being still ou the docket at the be
ginning of the afternoon session, Counoilman
Bray moved that the mayor be authorized to ap
point a city auditor for one year in all cities
where one is needed. The motion carried, with
extension by amendment, to the full term for
which the mayor is cleoted.
It was recommended that sections 3,162 and
3.165 be changed, the former by reading * grav
eling, paving, or otherwise improving,” and
the latter by substituting ‘*2s per cent.” for ”50
per cent.”
Councilman Bray further moved that the law
be so amended as to vest in the mayor, where
there is no board of aldermen, a veto power, tlie
same to be overruled by a two-thirds vote of the
council. It was adopt* and.
An invitation was then read, invitiug the del
egates to atteud a meeting ol the Parliamentary
Club, last evening. The invitation was accented. !
Other cities were culled, but rep
resentatives were, as a rule, not
ready to respond, preferring to wait
until a later session of the convention. Some of
the most important suggestions are given. A
motion to extend the terms of city treasurers
and clerks was laid on the table to admit of re
flection, the matter being considered too im
portant for hasty action. It. was moved to ask
the repeal of the law appointing city commis
sioners, and substitute therefor a committee of
the council. Referred to a committee.
An invitation from Dickson Brothers to attend
the performance at tht Grand Opera-house, to
night, was then gracefully accepted.
A motion was then carried for the 'repeal of
the law exempting tracts of five acres or more
from taxation by the city authorities, except for
township purposes.
A motion was adopted, without a dissenting
voice, that mayors be elected for a term of four
years.
After other geueral discussion the convention
adjourned to meet at 9 o’clock this morning for
the purpose of encircling the city on the Belt
railroad. Last evening the mayors attended
the performance at English's Opera-house and
afterward the meeting of the Parliamentary
Club.
A banquet will be given at the Denison House
this evening by tho Mayor and City Council.
A Knockdown Between Two Candidates- |
Two out of town candidates for Speaker of j
the Third House, mot in the corridor of the j
Grand Hotel and had. only exchanged a few !
words wheu they fell to blows. They were sep
arated by friends, who discovered the cause of
tho quarrel was that the candidates had not
followed the emphatic advice of their constit
uents, to buy their hats of Ryan, The Hatter,
21 and 23 South Illinois street, which alone
would insure them the position they were seek
ing.
