THE ISSUE THEY WILL RAISE
Candidate Myers Getting Ready to Talk
x in His Canvass About the State Debt.
Ward Meetings of Republicans Are Causing
an Earri'stiipss in Campaign Work Ani
masjof a Suit Filed Against 'Squire Smock.
W. R. 51 vers, who is trying to keep up with
?I at son's tactics in their canvass for the Demo
cratic nomination for Governor, was in the
Auditor of State's office, the other day. asking
for a eopy of the last annual report of that of
ficer. He obtained what he sought, and then
auuounced the i?sue upon which Democratic
speakers and editors intend to dwell during the
coming campaign as an offset ta the record of
mismanagement of State affairs which their own
party made. It is Mr. Myers's opinion that the
Democrats can afford to bear the burden
of having reduced the Insane Hospital
to a political asylum and nearly wrecked
the southern prison, since ; they intend
to assert that the Republicans have within a
year increased the debt enormocsly. ' We will
wake you fellows up," said the exuberant Mr.
Myers, as he, shaking the report he got' at the
Auditor's deputy and assistants, boanded out of
the room. To make their cmiae representa
tions of an increase in the State debt complete
it will become Mr. Myers and others of ftis way
of thinking, if they want to act squareiy with
the people, to give facts showing that at tne end
of the fiscal year 188G. just before the Demo
cratic Auditor and Treasurer of State went out
of office, there was really a deficit of $77,75137
in the treasury.
Instead of bringing up their accounts, and
meeting demands that should have been paid,
the Democratic State officers did not pay the in
terest on the State debt, which was doe the 10th
of the precedinz October, nntil December, 1886.
These officers did not pay this interest, amount
ing to .$117,143.49, when it fell dua, because they
had not provided for it. but used the money for
other purposes. In order, however, to show a
balance in the general fund .at the
end of the fiscal year, they deferred
the payment-of this interest, as stated, which
carried it over into the succeeding year so the
Republican State officers could be held responsi
ble for this apparent increase in a year's expen
ditures. At the end of the fiscal year of 1886,
Oct 31, the Democrats showed an apparent bal
ance of $30,390 12. Had they us?d this in help
ing to provide for the interest das, there would
not only have been no balance, but a deficit of
$77,753.37, coneiderine the rest of the means
needed to meet the $117,143.74, the payment of
which was transferred to another fiscal year.
But Mr. Myers and the Democratic BDeakers
will not make this explanation. Tbey will go
no further than say that when the Democrats
left office the State debt was only $1,761,825 12,
and that it is now ,$2,185,823.12, siring an in
crease of $424,000 in one year under a Epublic
an administration. In avoiding an analysis of
this increase they wilt leave th people unac
quainted with its most interesting features, par
ticularly that of the Democrats being responsi
ble directly for $402,842.28 of the entire amount,
counting $117,01174 paid out for a General
Assembly which was unable to accomplish
any business, because the Jusmocrats in
the
Senate would not permit it, unless
Green Smith was reeoenlzed as Lieutenant-gov
ernor. But the Republicans, a snort time after
coming into office, bad to borrow $340,000 to pay
interest, because the Democrats left no money
or resources by which it eould be done. The
same Democratic officials bad so far crippled the
general fund that $84,000 had to be borrowed
from the university fund, making the total in
crease $424,000. Out of this money $117,143 49
was paid for the interest which, due Oct. 18,
1886, was willfully carried to the following year,
making the expenditure that much larger. Es
timates amounting to $160,000 on tbe new insane
bospitals had been allowed during 18S6 by the
commissioners of that work, but as there was
no money to pay them the Democratic officials
of that time allowed the warrants therefor to be
hawked all over the State. Tbey remained un
paid nntil the Republicans came into office. A
special appropriation of $8,685.08 was paid oat
for claims ou the Indiana Hospital contracted
by the Democrats. The other items of expendi
tures in this increase were $80,260.62 for the
Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphan Home. $4,561.24
for the soIdiefrThonnment, and 810,000 for the
School of Feeble-minded Youth. Adding the
$117,01194 which the last General Assembly
cost, and Mr. Myers will have all the items to
show the increase of a debt from which he ex
pects so much.
Meeting of the Nunhweit Wards.
That the Republicans are beginning to realize
the importance of the election next Monday i3
shown by the enthusiastie ward meetings that
are being held over the city. All of those held
so far have been well attended, and indicate
that the party will not allow the election to go
by default Monday. St. Clair Hall, on Indiana
avenue, was well filled last night by the Repub
licans of the Fourth, Fourteenth and Thirteenth
wards. Nearly, if not quite half of the audience
was composed of colored men. who seem to be
taking an unusual interest in the campaign,
partly because they have a representative on
the ticket. Hon. John L. Griffiths was to have
addressed the meetin?, but he being unable to
attend, tbe gathering resolved itself into a sort of
a Republican love feast. Mr. Dausherty
was chosen chair on an, and after he -had
made a few introductory romarks. Joseph
Keeling spoke briefly. He said he would im
press on the Republicans of tbe wards repre
sented the necessity of getting out a full vote.
The present campaign was the beginning of a
hie one, and every Republican should do some
thing for the success of the ticket. If tbey
elected the township ticket Marion county would
be redeemed from the Democracy next fall. It
was to be regretted that the people generally
did not take more interest in tbe spring elec
tions. There should be more spirit manifested
in township affairs than when a President was
to be elected. The record Mr. Many had made
ought to be sufficient recommendation to secure
the vote of every thoughtful tax-payer. When
he took charge of his office he found all the
funds overdrawn. The road fund was short
$21,000. Mr. Many had not only kept up the
roads, bridges and the school-houses, but he had
reduced the debt $6,000. It was unnecessary to
speak of tbe extravagance of Mr. Many's Demo
cratic predecessor. The tax-payers were all
well aware of his actions. The speaker thought
that while the Democratic party did not seem to
be making any effort to carry the election, they
were actively at work on a 'etill hunt," and it
would not do for the Republicans to remain in
active. He also thought the entire Republican
ticket should be supported. Sympathy for any
man on the Democratic ticket shculd not cause
any one to scrato h the same of a Republican
candidate. The County Commissioners, be
lieving that the Republicans would probably
elect their ticket, had reduced the number of
justices to three, in order that they might have
the opportunity of appointing two Democrats
after the election. Therefore, if there
was any man on the Democratic ticket
some Republicans would like to see elected
they should not vote for him, as ho'was sure to
be appoioted in ease of defeat. If the townships
were carried by the Republican this time, they
would gain tbe county in the fall. Success now
meant that Indiana eould tro to the national
convention at Chicago and secure a leader on
the Republican national ticket.
Charles Heckman followed Mr. Kealing in a
short talk. He thought there was need of act
ive work between now and Monday. Many men
did not seom to know there was going to be an
e'ection, and others had the idea that the town
ship election had nothing to do with the city.
There should be meetings, held in every ward
and tbe voters awakened. It was to the dis
credit of Republicans that it could be said of
them that a wet day meant a Democratic vic
tory, and a dry day a Republican victorv.
It 'ought to be said of all Republicans that
tbey were at the polls from morning until night,
whether it was a wet or a fair day.
After a few remarks by Col. A. A. Jones,
urging colored men to stand by the party that
freed them and made it possible for them to at
tend political meetings, H. T. Tinche spoke. He
said success depended more ou earnest work at
the polls on election day than anything else.
The ward committeemen should select before
hand men to fill every position, and be sure that
they would serve. The influen-ea of victory at
this election could not be measured. It would
demoralize the Democratic party, and lessen,
their courage for the fall contest.
YY. A. VanBuren said he did not think intelli
gent voters would be long io determining how
they would vote. The record Captain Many
hd made was unprecedented. He felt confident
that if the vote was brought out a big majority
was assured. After some additional remarks by
Otto Greebam and others the meeting closed
with music by a quartette from the Huston
Club.
The Suit Against Rqiire Smock.
It is supposed that tbe Democratic managers
of Coy's candidate for trustee had more to do
than any one else with the filing of a suit
yesterday against 'Squire Smock, charging him
with collecting an illegal fee. Tbe plaintiff is
Jiffies IS. Wbetler, a beer dealer. In July,
1SSS. he was arrest on the charge of applying
a vile name to a young son of Capt. Louis C.
O'Brien.. The warrant was sworn out by Cant.
O'Brien, and Mr. Wheeler demanded a trial. He
was found guilty ana fined small sum. He
appealed to the Criminal Court, and the judg
ment of 'Squire Smock was sustained by Judee
Irvin. 'Squire Smock's fees in the case amount
ed to $5, and Mr. Wheeler paid the amount after
the decision in the upper court without making
a motion to have the costs retaxed.
Now he comes forward " and says
that the justice of the peace was entitled
to only $3.10. He asks judgment for the $1 90,
and $50 damages. After the suit was filed
'Squire Smock examined his docket, and in go
ing over the items found that hefought to have
had $5. 25 instead of the sum he received. Under
tbe law he sys he can and did charge for the
affidavit, warrant, subpoena, bond, trial, swear
ing witnesses, record, judgment, transmissioa
of paper, and certificate. It bas been known
for several days through tbe statements of cer
tain Democrats that such a suit was to be filed.
The complaint as filed bears the name of no at
torney, and is signed by Mr. Wheeler alone. It
is in the hand-writing of Louis Reinhold, an ex
eonstable, who has been fighting Smock, and
the 'Squire thinks he instigated its filing.
Republicans Organizing. j
Henry LaTourette. clerk of Fountain Circuit
Court, was in the city looking after business in
terests yesterday. In response to the inquiry,
What are the Republicans of Fountain county
doing? he said: "We are wide-awake, organizing
Lincoln Clubs in every township. You can de
pend on us for a good report in November. We
are all for Harrison for President. 1 do not
know of a dissenting voice on that question.
The Republicans have the- conviction that they
had in 1880 they all believe we are going to
win, and that's a good sign."
Notes of the Campaign.
Trie Republicans of the Sixth ward will hold
a rally to-night, at the corner of Fort Wayne
avenue and New Jersey street. Good speakers
will be present.
The Republicans of the second precinct of the
Second ward will meet this evening at the engine-house,
on Seventh street, at 7:30 o'clock,
for the transaction of important business.
Three of the clerks in the county clerk's offiee
have been engaged in copying names into poll
books for three days, and yet there are people
who believe that the Democratic machinery is
not stiil in the hands of the gang." y,
The Republicans of the first precinct of the
Twentieth ward met last night at the rooms of
the South-side Republican Club, at the cor
ner of East and South streets, and after dis
cussing the situation, formulated some plans
for systematic work on election day.
A very good meeting was held at No. 30 Hill
avenue last night by the Republicans of the First
ward. The speakers were Fraak MsCray, Judge
Denny, 'Squire Smock and others. They - all ',
urged the necessity of active work between now
and Monday, and impressed upon those present .
the necessity of getting out a full vote.
NEW I0EK LIGHTING COMPANIES.
The Prices at Which They Offer to Light That
City bj Gas and Electricity. -
. The New York Gas Commission, izx consider
ing bids recently for lighting tbe streets and
public places of that city, found a radical differ
ence in the value the several gas companies
placed upon their product. There the electric
light companies came into the competition, and
the prices they offered in comparison with those
of gas furnish, some useful data for the , alder
men and councilmen of this city. The bids
were received for a contract of one year, ending
May 1, 1889. ' 5
The Consolidated and the New York Mutual
gas companies each bid $17.50 a lamp per year,

tute naphtha ga3 at a reduced rate in the district
now lighted by the Yonkers Gas Company; '
The bids by the electric lij?ht companies'were,
as follows: Brush Electric Light Company? 3Sll

AEEIYAL OP BALL PLAIEES.
i
Three If ore of the Team Have Reported and
Glasscock Will Join it at Cincinnati,
Two more of the Indianapolis players have
arrived. Bassett came Tuesday night, 'and
Boyle arrived from Philadelphia yesterday. The
latter spent a great part of the winter here,
having gone to the Quaker City for a visit abont
a month ago. He is apparently in good condi
tion, as is the ease with Bassett. v The latter
has been receiving a number of handsome press
notices during the last few weeks, and Man
ager S pence's statement, that be wouldn't want
a neater fielder than Bassett. seems to be the
general opinion of those who watched him work
in other cities last year. Esterbrook says Bas
sett did as pretty work on the polo grounds last
summer as was everyone there.
It is hoped the weather will so improve that
the team can get some kind of practice at tbe
park by to-morrow afternoon. The boys will
certainly have about as hard a job before them
on Monday as could be given them.- Considering
the practice they have bad, the Ciacinnatis are
, probably as strong a team just at, the present
time as there is m tne country. . .
Pitcher Healy also arrived last night from St.
Louis. He is the only one of the local club whe
has bad any out-door practice this year. H
amused himself for a few innings recently with
the Chicago batsmen at Hot Springs. He bas
grown taller and heavier during the winter, and
thinks he is now about the tallest man in the
League.
Sam Moffatt is expected to-day, and Glass-'
cock has notified Manager Spence that ho will'
report at Cincinnati Sunday.
A Sheet-Iron Mill Project!.
; A gentleman representing a number of capi
talists, who are about to invest in a large plant
to produce sheet-iron and sheet-steel, is in the
city. He is looking for a location, . and has so
far met with enough to encourage him in the be
lief that the plant will be established?" here.
"What we want, more than anything else," he
said, yesterday, "is cheap fuel, and the natural
gas companies are giving us liberal terms. ' If
tbe ground is donated to us we will come here,
and that "is all we ask aside from low rates in
fuel as an inducement. Our mills, if erected
here, will give employment to 100 men of the
highest skill, men who wll receive large wages,
as our pay-roll will be over $3,000. It is our
purpose to produce at the outset fifteen tons of
sheet-metal per day. We will also manufacture
bars and tubes. Oar buildings, as planned, will
be three aside from the office and blacksmith
shop. The first is designed to be 90x100 feet,
the second 70x100, and the third 40x80. Of
course the plant will oniy be a nucleus for what
we exoect to create hereafter." The gentleman
quoted will remain here for several days.

prehensive given'' before the society this year.

country and Europe. Musical numbers filled
out a short and enjoyable programme in which

Bamberger rendered solos. Miss Wilcocx and
Mrs. Morrison sang "The Starry Heavens." by
Pinsutl- "The Morning Serenade," by Krue,

Morrison, and the Leckner Quartet played a
minuet by Sch&rwenka, a beautiful light com
position and exquisitely rendered.

Change of Location.
I. L. Frankem has removed his stove and
honse-furnishing establishment from No. 36
East Washington street to No. 62 East Wash
ington street, the old and well known stand so
long occupied by Johnston Bros. This removal
was made necessary by lb constantly increasing
demands of business, Mr. Frankem'a trade having
outgrown the quarters he has so long occupied.
The place to which he has removed will give
him the additional room he so much needs. He
hopes to take with Mm to the new location all
his old trade and that he will fa?l heir to the
customers who in past years have patronized
the Johnston stand. Mr. . Frankem wilt here
after carry the largest stock in his line in the
city, including the John Van wrought steel
hotel and family ranges, the famous Richmond
ranges and the several makes of stoves of which
he has control.
