THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, 4 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1890.
5 EICH DEMOCRATS TEOTEST They Are Tired of Being Called Thieves andKobbersby Bourbon Congressmen, And Ilence Refuse Contributions to the Cam Bpection Bill Passed bj the Senate. DEM O C RATS "WONT CONTRIBUTE. Wealthy Members of the Tarty Refuse Aid tii the ContrresIonal Committee. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. Washington, Sept. 18. A publication made to-day by the Baltimore Snii, the or gan of Senator Gorman, eo far as he may be said to possess one, occasioned some comment. It was to the effect that the con tributions to the Democratic congressional campaign fnnd are disappointingly email. Hon. Koswell P. Flower, it says, 'was put at the head of the committee in the belief that his linancial standing and resources -would be of value in securing the sinews of war, without which no contest can be successfully waged in these mercenary days. He put into operation , a plan for securing funds which, it was thought, would be attended with success, but the Sun's article says the re sults have been far from what was ex pected. Books were placed in the hands of each Democratic Congressman and candi date, and thence circulated throughout the district. They have been pretty generally returned, and it is stated the names they contained were fewer than expected and the sums given also lessj in amount. It is not known whether these are really, the facts in the case or that it is intended as a blind to deceive the Kepnblican man agers as to tho true state ofaffairs. It is known that Senator Gorman was disap pointed with the manner in which the campaign was conducted for the Democrats in Speaker Keed's district, and borne peoplo who ought to know say that the Sun's story is trne, and intonded to manifest tho. Senator's disapproval of the present methods and management of the Democratic campaign. It is related that when the collector went to a promi nent Democratic business man in New York city, one who hitherto has been noted for his liberal contributions to the campaign fund, he declined to subscribe anything. In answer to tho expressed surprise of the collector the business man is reported to have said, in substance: "I think yon have a good deal of assurance to come to mo or to others situated as I am and ask contributions to the campaign fund. For months Democratic Congress men have publiclv denounced without any discrimination the rich men of this coun try, especially tho manufacturers, as thieves and robbers. There was no line of separation observed between classes; every one who had possession of wealth was the subject of attack. I am tired of it, and say , m m - iranKiy mat no more money 01 mine n going to aid the election of men wno minK their duty in Congress requires them to make that kind of attacks." ANOTHER MEAT LAW. Bill Passed by the Senate Providing for In spectors at Slaughter-Houses. ' Bpeclal to the Indianapolis Journal. ' Washington, Sept. 18. A bill of impor tance to all the packing-houses of the West was passed by the Senate to-day, and, judging from the temper of the House on the compound lard bill, and on the export pork inspection bill, it is likely to pass that body also, as the bill is supported by the advocates of those two measures. The bill as passed provides that the Secretary of Agriculture shall cause to be inspected, prior to their slaughter, all cattle and hogs which are the subjects of interstate com merce, and which are about to be slaugh tered at slaughter-houses, canning, salt ing, packing or rendering establish ments in any State or Territory, the carcasses or products of which are to be transported and sold for human con sumption in any other State or Territory, and in all cases where the said Secretary of Agriculture may deem it necessary or expedient. When on said inspection any such cattle or hogs are found to be a fleeted by any disease, or if from any other cause any of said cattle or hogs are fouud until for human consumption, the inspector shall, in the discretion of the Secretary of Agri culture, an 4 under rules and regulations to be prescribed by him, order their condem nation and cause them to be de stroyed without compensation to the owner. In addition to this inspection the Secretary is authorized, in cases where ho deems it expedient and necessary, to order a post-mortem inspec tion of the carcasses of cattle and hogs, and if found unfit for human food, or un healthy, they shall bo destroyed, together with all food products made fropi any part of such carcasses. Transportation lines ore forbidden to carry animals, carcasses or xroducts so condemned, under heavy penalties. BILLS PASSED II Y THE SENATE. Grade of Lieutenant-General to Be Revived Army Nurses to Be Pensioned. Washington, Sept. 18. In the Senate to day Mr. Voorhecs introduced a bill to re tiro the circulation of the national banks, to issue legal-teuder notes in lieu thereof, and to reduce the iuterest-boaring debt. Keferred to tho committee on finance. The resolution offered yesterday by Mr. Plumb to recommit the bankruptcy bill to the judiciary committee, with instructions to amend it so as to provide for voluntary. bankruptcy only, was taken np and. at the suggestion of Mr. Hoar, went over till to morrow. Among the bills passed were the follow ing: House bill to amend the Articles of War relative to punishment on conviction by courts-martial. Senate bill to provide for the inspection of live cattle, hogs, and the carcasses and products thereof, which are the subjects of interstate commerce. Senate bill to revive the grade of lieutenant-general in the army of the United States. The bill is as follows: That the grade of lieutenant-general bo hereby re-established in the nnnj; of the United Htates, and the President of the United states is hereby authorized to appoint, with the advice and con sent of the Senate, a lieutenant-general of the army of the United States. Sec. 2. That the pay and allowances of the lieutenant-reneral be the same as heretofore al lowed lor that grade. Sepate bill for relief of women enrolled as army nurses, allowing $12 a month to women who have for six months rendered actual service in anv regimental, camp or general hospital, and who are unable to earn their support, the pension tocommenco from the date of application after tho pas sage of the act. The bill to define and regulate the juris diction of the courts of the United States was taken from the calendar and went over as unfinished business. Mr. Manderson presented resolutions rel ative tothe deathof tholateKepresentativo l,aird. and after remarks by Messrs. Pad dock and Manderson the Senate adjourned. MINOR 3IATTERS. Tariff Bill Conferee Make Good Progress and Hope to Report on Monday. Washington, Sept. 13. The conferees on the tariff bill had a two-hours' session this morning, and, it is reported, made sub stantial progress. Tho most important action was the acceptance, by the House conferees, of the Senate reciprocity amend ments. The amendments were not -con-considered in order, but were taken up here and there, wherever it appeared that no serious difference of opinion existed and agreed upon. Biiiding-twirift has not yet been disposed of. It is understood that the Senate increases of duties on wines and spirits have been abandoned by the Senate members of the conference committee. The iron and steel and glassware schedules have not yet been considered. Messrs. Vance and Mills, of the Democratic con- itxess, cro not iu the city. In viiw of the progress made to-day the House conferees express the opinion that fie bill will be ready for report by Monday. The Senators are lirmly fixed in their de termination to have the Senate sugar amendment, making the dutiable standard 13 instead of 16, as adopted by the House, or rise to leave the sngar duties as at pres ent. Thus far they have -aot succeeded in inducing the House conferees to yield. - Senator Paddoek Cannot Speak in Indiana. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. Washington, Sept. 18. Senator Paddock has received more than a dozen invitations to take the stump in Western States and expound the tariff from a Western stand point. Chairman Michener, of Indiana, wired him to-day, insisting that he should pass through Indiana on his way home and speak at least twice. Senator Paddock has been compelled to decline all invitations. He has had no vacation for ten months, and has scarcely missed a roll-call in tho Senate in that time. General Notes. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. Washington, Sept 18. Indiana post masters were appointed to-day as follows: Elizaville, Boone county, H. A. Bradshaw, vice M. A. Kichey. resigned; Qneensville, Jennings county, J. W. Corya, vice R. Ken nedy, resigned.

The total popula tion of Arizona is 50.C91, an increase of 19.251. The House committee on foreign affairs to-day directed a favorable report on a modineation of representative McCreary's resolution, calling on tho President for all official information respecting the killing of General liarrundia on board the Amer ican steamer Acapulco, by the authorities of Guatemala, while under the protection of the American Hag. MAN'S SIXTH SENSE. Hind-Reader Johnstone Employs It in the Difficult Feat of Opening a Safe. Chicago, Sept. 18. Paul Alexander John stone, the mind-reader, whose recent feat of picking a name out of the register at the Grand Hotel, after a long drive blindfolded through crowded streets, attracted such wide attention, performed another feat to day, which, to all appearances, totally dis proves the theory that man possesses only live 6enses, and also the belief that mind reading is really a species of muscle-reading. J ohnstone opened a difficult combina tion safe In the presence of many well known people, at the Wellington Hotel, and under the following remarkaL'e cir cumstances: He was first blindfolded and the bandages thoroughly examined by a committee. His ears were packed with cotton, so it was impossible for him to hear; then his nostrils were simi larly filled , to destroy, for .the time being, the sense of smell, and finally his hands were covered with thick kid gloves to disprove the theory of muscle reading. In his mouth he held a lighted cigar, so that even the sense of taste was tempor arily destroyed. The proprietors and book-keeper of the hotel then took a posi tion behind him, and while Johnstone turned tho knob of the safe they wore re quested to think of the combination. Without touching either of the gentlemen, the mind-reader turned correctly to the numbers and swung the door open. The crowd which witnessed the act cheered him repeatedly. Johnstone declares that his idea in open ing the safe under such peculiar conditions was simply to prove that man actually possesses more than five senses, and that science is in error. In conversation the mind-reader couples his performance to day as in some respects comparing in im portance to tho scientific world with the discovery of the circulation of the blood or the law of gravitation. CHANGING FAITH FOR LOVE. A Rabbi Who Doe3 Not Believe in Gentiles Be coming Jews in Order to Marry. Chicago, Sept. 18. 'The Jews,both ortho dox and those of the modern school, take little stock in the so-called conversions to the Hebrew faith, such as this case of lawyer Vere Hunt," remarked Rabbi E. G. Hirsch, in answer to the inquiries of a re porter to-day. "In almost every instance the confession of faith is made by one of two parties about to be united in matri mony, and is not accompanied by motives of sincerity. Every such case that has come within my knowledge has been the out come of differences existing between the prospective groom and the bride's parents, l ean readily see how a young man falling in love with a pretty Jewess can resolve to take upon himself the responsibility of be coming ( a believer in . the He brew faith. , Our chnrch, however, does not wish 6nch additions, and the fact that matrimony is the real end m view should debar the applicant But we are not so strict nowadays as we used to bo. Tho old laws state that the candidate must be warned of the responsibilities of becoming a Jew, and must be refused, even if he per sists, until finally it becomes fully apparent that he is determined to join the faith." "Then these converts do not as a rule work to advance the interests of tho Jewish faith?" "Not that I know of. We believe that any well meaning man who lives morally, be he Jew or gentile, will be entitled to all of the blessings of tho hereafter. Therefore, should a man of good repute come to me and state that ho wanted to become a Jew to marry a certain young lady I would accept him upon profession of faith. Tho cere-", mony, however, is useless, and the adoption of a new or Jewish name is nonsensical." SECRETARI RUSK TO THE FARMERS. lie Commends Their Organizations, and Gives , Some Good Advice Department Work. Columbus, O., Sept 18. There were 45,000 people in attendance at the State fair to-day. A feature was the presence of ex-Gov. J. M. Rusk, Secretary of Agriculture. He deliv ered an address on the grounds this after noon, and. after being introduced by ex President Haves, among other things, said he congratulated the farmers upon the de velopment of agricultural organizations, justified their determination to no longer be satisfied with comparisons of the ad Vantage they now enjoy with tho privi leges enjoyed by their sires, but to in sist on the full share with their city brothers in the general prosperity to which they contribute so much. He warned them, however, not to expect impossible results from legislative action, and advised' 6uch conservatism in the formulation of their plans of action as would surely enlist public opinion on their side, which is es sential to success in a country where the majority must always rule. He cautioned the farmer, while tirmly maintaining his own rights, to respect those of all other classes of workers, and to seek the accom plishment of bis plan rather within than by antagonizing existing political parties. Lastly, he pledged to the farmers tho hearty co-operation and aid of the De partment of Agriculture, whose work ho re ferred to brielly, laying special stress, how ever, upon the pure-food question, the con trol and extirpation of animal disoases, taking occasion in this connection to de clare his personal conviction that pleuro pneumonia is practically eradicated from Auiericau soil, and calling attention to the aggressive work of the department in its efiorts to free Auiericau stock interests and meat production from the unjust stigma cast upon its wholesomeness by foreign govern Ky., 7.375. an mcrease of 7,GT5; Lexington, Ky., 22.3.V, an increase of 5,000; Newport, Ky.. 24.1)38, an increase of 4,503; Paris. Ky., 5.505. an inrrenM of 2.S01: Tucson. A 'P.. ments. Tho course adopted by the depart ment in this respect he believes destined to succeed in either securing the withdrawal of these unjust accusations or furnishing good grounds for retaliatory measures. He also referred to the extension of facil ities for gathering and distributing reliable statistical information, which, he points out will be keeping the American farmers posted as to foreign supply and demand, and the condition of our,, own crops and markets will prevent his being imposed upon by the speculators and dealers, who do not hesitate to resort to exaggeration, and even misrepresentation, in order that they may thrive on his losses. He con cluded by declaring the struggle for agri cultural victory to-day to be no less arduous or vital than Jho struggle for national supremacy in the past. AT CRESSON SPRINGS. Anti-Lottery and River and Harbor Bills to Be Signed by the President at Once. Cresson Spuing s. Sept 18. The Presi dent sent the following nominations to Washington this morning: Cob Edward H. Vollum, to bo chief medical purveyor, U. S. A., with the rank, of colonel, vice Col. J. H. Baxter, promoted to be surgeon-general; LieuL-Col. B. J. D.

The President and Mrs. Dimmick took a long walk over the mountains this morning, and this afternoon they wero joined by Mrs. Harrison in a ride to Ebensburg, a vil lage Beven miles distant, from which point the scenery is very fine. William H. Dill this evening brought a pressing invitation to the President from the miners of Phil lipsburg and vicinity to visit them during his stay in the mountains. Three Train-Wreckers Indicted. Albany, N. Y., Sept. 18. The grand jury at Troy this afternoon indicted Cain, Huett and Reed ' nnder Section 635 of the Penal Code, charging them with misplacing a cabbage switch, two miles above the point where the tram was wrecked. It is said that the Cordial and Kiernan cases wero considered and no evidence against them was found and they will be discharged in the morning. A RACE TRACK NEEDED. The Agricnltoral Board Wonld Do a Good Thing by Seeking Other Grounds for a StateFair. Nelson A. Randall, editor of the Western Sportsman, was talking about horse-racing' and kindred matters the other day.; 'Our : State Board of Agriculture," remarked . Mr. Randall, "has too much money tied up in, the fair grounds property, and the ground , is, even with the addition recently made, much too small. That property should be sold, and the monoy it wonld bring would purchase four times as much ground and leave 8100,000 cash in hand. I know what I am talking about for I - have been ' looking about recently and know that the' board can get good property near the city, which could have not only street-car, but : steam communication.. What this city greatly needs is a mile track, for racing purposes. Such a track could be used dur ing State fair week, and besido that would be in demand twice a year for race meet ings. See what a mile track and the inter est taken in horses has dono for Terre Haute. It has been worth not less than' $500,000 . a ver to that city and cbuuty. The stock in the Terre Haute association can not be bought to day for 300 on the $100. Cambridge City has a mile track and two race meetings a year. This is the only live interest in that town the horse business and to Mr. John Lackey more than to any' one else is due its establishment and mam-f tenance. Purses of 1,000 and $1,500 are oil'ered. They have good racing, and crowds of peoplo are attracted there. Rash ville is another place where interest is .taken in racing and breeding. A .great many people look no further than the races,' bnt the breeding of horses is, of course, be hind it all. and there is where the money is. Ru6hville has a mile track and a half-mile track, and the breeding of horses is largely the business of the county. This in terest brings many thousands of dollars to Rush county each year. s "Indianapolis," continued Mr. Randall, "has a location that would make her, with a good mile track, one of the best places in the United States for race meetings. There ought to be some way of awakening tho State Board of Agriculture and the citi zens of Indianapolis to the importance of this subject There is no other State fair association in the United States that pays as little attention to advertising s annual show as this one. A few thousand premium lists are sent out and a number of pictures of a cirl on horseback, and that's all. As to the half-mile track at tho exposition, while it Is nicely shaped, it is full of stones from the size of a quail's egtf up to 6tones as big as a man's fist They pay no atten tion to the track uutil within a short time before the State fair opens, whereas, to have a good track, as any horseman will tell you, constant oversight is necessary." THE REED WILL NOT FOUND. . It Is Believed the Old Gentleman Destroyed It He and His Son Were Never Reconciled. . The search for the will of the late Wil loughby H. Reed still continues. The con viction has forced itself upon some of those interested that Mr. Reed destroyed the document. According to its provisions the widow was to receive only $00 per month, but there is reason to believe that after an interview with one of the young men to whom he offered to sell the laundry, he became dsssatistied with his bequest to his wife. He had but three f daces to keep his papers his room, the aundry office on North Illinois street, and the satety deposit vault. Mr. Collin, the executor, maintains that there is a will, and thinks if he had seen Mr. Reed in time the mystery would have been explained. He was sent for to go to Mr. Reed's bed side on urgent business, bnt on reaching there his death had occurred. . It is well known that Mr. Reed was at variance with, his son. The trouble occenred in the days of his great wealth in Philadelphia, where he was interested in several large corpora tions. The son displeased the father, who managed to have him drafted into the army, tho war being tbtn in progress. Young Reed learned of the circumstance, but went into the service with a deteimi nation to prove a good soldier. He came out with the rank of major, speedily found business and fortune in New York city, and is now enjoying a large income as ship ping commissioner.. He and his fathor never becamo reconciled. Fell Under Car Wheel. Wesley Finn, twenty-two years of ago, was taken to the City Hospital last night in Kregelo's ambulance, ho having suf fered the loss of both legs below the knee by falling nnder a train. He was steal ing a ride on a Big Four passenger from his home in Harrison, O., and at tempted to jump from the train as it slacked up at tho Belt crossing. He missed his footing and rolled under the wheels. An Unprovoked Murder. Coroner Wagner completed his investi gation yesterday relative to the death of Timothy Dufty. He found it to have been caused by a blow from a rock, hurled with malicious intent by Martin O'Day. The killing, he says, was done without provoca tion.

The Citizens' Street-railroad Company is busy with plans to handle the crowds which will be attracted to the city next week by the State fair. I expect," said Superin tendent Steele, to a Journal reporter, yes terday, "that the city will have the great est numborof visitors next week that wero over here, at least at a State fair. We are better prepared to. handle the crowds than ever before, and, if nec essary, will run cars at one minute intervals on the Pennsylvania and Central avenue lines. This will require fifty-seven cars, as it takes fifty-seven minutes, with out delays, to make the round trip from the Union Station to the grounds and back. It is either a feast or a famine, in our busi ness, butl think we will manage to accom modate the people. Our highest receipts of a day during the last fair showed that we carried over sixty-two thousand peo ple." : Mr. Steele said also that extra cars would be placed on the West Washington-street line, as the fair also brings hundreds who have friends at the Insane Hospital. Any other line that visitors fre quent will be supplied with extra ac commodations. The company's officials believe that tho Illinois electric line will prove so much of an attraction to the vis itors that its utmost capacity will be test ed with the regular schedule. They have) therefore abandoned the idea entertained for awhile, of running trailers as far as Seventh street, and thence drawing them with mules to the fair grounds. Fifty new mules have been purchased, and are being used this week to harden them to their work. The large amount of extra work to be done will re quire the mules to make twenty-five miles per day, instead of eighteen, the average runs, but tho teams will he given a rest after every run. At such a time as the State fair both men and beasts are re- 3uired to exert every effort to accommo ato the people. A large number of now men are receiving instructions in prepara tion for the arduous week. Superintendent Steele speaks in warm praise of the patience shown by the Irving ton people while they are deprived of their new electric line, and says that he hopes to have the storage cars running by to-morrow night, or surely by Sunday morning. The delay Las been caused, he says, by the contractor and not by the company. -------------- m Grievances Against Maditon. The committee appointed by the Street Railroad Employes' Association, to confer with the company officers in reference to tho discharge of George Callahan, met with Superintendent Steele and Secretary An derson yesterday morning. President Shaf fer being absent in St. Louis. The com plaints against Foreman MadUon and the situation as regards Callahan wero set forth by Conductor Newfiouse, chairman of the committee. No demand for. tho rein statement of Callahan was made, but a request was urged for an investigation of the complaints. Superintendent Steele informed a Journal reporter that the meet ing was marked by tho friendliest spirit He is convinced, he says, that' the associa tion has the interests of the company in viow, as well as its own. He judges this from the refusal to take up the cases of some members who were discharged for cause. In the Callahan case the meeting in the morning had doveloped nothing, ex cept that Callahan's stories to the associa tion and to the company did not agree. It was decided to continue the investigation till this afternoon, when President Shali'er will be homo and rcady to meet the com mittee. The witnesses in the case have Superintendent Steele's assurance that they will be protected from discharge as a result of any testimony against Madison they may give. AMUSEMENTS. GRAND OrEKA-IIOUSE "IJTTI.K PUCK." There was a large audience at the Grand Opera-house last night to welcome Frank Daniels in "Littlo Puck." His character ization of Packingham Giltedge is well known here, and there is little to bo written about it that has not already been said, ex cent, possibly, that it improves with age. Mr. Daniels retains all his droll manner isms, and tho andience last night laughed as heartily at them as it was pos sible for. an audience to laugh. There is something irresistibly funny in his walk, and the old, familiar gestures which first delighted the public iu "The Rag Baby" are as mirth-provoking as ever. Old Sport lives again in Packingham Giltedge, and nobody would have it otherwise. Mr. Daniels's humor is ulike that of any other comedian. His methods are different, and can never be successfully imitated, hence the public will never be surfeited with him.,. No refersnce to the comedy is necessary, for it is familiar to the Indianapolis public. The specialties, however, are new and taking, and most of them were recalled. Several new songs and choruses are introduced. Mr. Daniels is ably seconded in his efforts to furnish an evening of fun by Bessie Sanson as Miranda. Her song, "1 Whistle and Wait for Katie." was encored, as was the dno between her and Mr. Daniels, "This Little Pig Went to Market." The latter song is the one which DeWolf Hop per and Delia Fox popularized in New York, recently, in "Castles in the Air." The company supporting Air. Dauiels tills the . requirements of tho piece. Messrs. Moulton, Morris, Wood and Ijvans are clever in their parts, and Mor ris's rendition of the Italian fruit-vender' S song is the best yet heard . here. "Little Puck" will be repeated this evening, and two performances will be given to-morrow. NOTES. The diagram of seats of Tomlinson Hall will be exposed at the Grand Opera-house at 10 o'clock this morning, and the sale of tickets for the Strauss Orchestra concerts will begin. There will not bo much choice between the entertainments, as the pro grammes are all carefully made un and comprise many choice selections. Danco music, of course, will predominate in all of them, but a number of popular pieces will be introduced. The sale will be continued at the Grand until the concert dates. "Siberia," Bartley Campbell's elaborate spectacular melodrama, that will be pro duced at the Grand Opera-house all next week, has not been seen in Indianapolis for several seasons. According to all accounts aud the claims made by the management, , the play is being given with greater suc cess this season than ever before. The company has been playing in Philadelphia, and tho audiences have been limited only by the capacity of the theater. The sale of seats will begin to-morrow morning. "Mr. Barnes of New York," which is to be presented at English's during the coming week, is meeting with mnch success in tho East. Large audiences have enjoyed the performances, and the management has rea son to think that the play will surpass its record of last season. Manager Sanger claims to have greatly improved the com pany as well as the scenic effects of the piece. The advance salo of seats will begin to-morrow morning. ENLARGING" THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. A Subject to Which a Joint Meeting of Four Committees Gave Favorable Attention. Four special committees met at the Build ers' Exchange Hall last night to discuss the proposition to organize a mechanics' insti tute on a broad basis. They represented the Board of Trade, Commercial Club, Builders Exchange and the Mechanics' In stitute as it now exists. Otto Stechban was chosen chairman of the meeting, which was taken in charge by tho committee from the institute. It was explained that the institute has been in operation for five years, but that its financial support has been derived from membership fees. It is the desire to place it upon a different basis whereby a fund may be guaranteed for the employment of an additional corps of instructors. To accomplish this it was thought best to apply directly to the man ufacturers of the city, as they are the most interested. The committee laid considera te stress on the fact that the appeal is not to be considered in the light of charity, but as the result of a growing need in tho city. The committee from the institute was au thorized to prepare a printed circular, set ting forth its proposition, a copy of which will be mailed to each manu facturer in the city. To facilitate this work Chairman Stechban was authorized to appoint a committee, which will proba bly be composed of . one hundred citizens, to visit the manufacturers personally. Further action was deferred until a meet ing which is to be held in the Board of Trade Hall at a date to be fixed by the chairman. At that time the whole matter will be considered in detail. Opening of Professional Schools. The School of Pharmacy of Purdue Uni versity, which opened five years ago with five students, has opened its present term with seventy-fivo students. The Indiana Dental College will open Oct 1. Last year this college, in practical exemplification of its work, expended SC00 in dental material used upon poor people. This amount does not include anything for the professors who performed the work. This year it is proposed to do twice the amount of this kind of work, and physi cians will bo asked to send patients who require dental work and are unable to pay for it to the college as suhjects for clinics. The law school of DePauw University, of which Mr. A. L. Mason is dean, will have a number of lectures from jurists and law yers of this city during the term. Among these lecturers are Judges Byron K. Elliott and J. A. S. Mitchell, of the Supreme Court, Mr. W. P. Fishback. Mr. Johu L. Griffiths, Mr. John A. Finch and Mr. Charles N. Thompson. Mr. Wm. F. Elliott has been employed by the university as a special lecturer on "Pleading. Practice and Ad vocacy, Pussy Wants a Corner." Mipne.ipolls Tribune.
