Illinois Personal Matters,
The train records show that there were
received and forwarded at Indianapolis In
the week ended Oct. 20 a total of 2S.2GS cars,
22.121 being loaded, an Increase over the
week ending Oct. 13 of 618 loaded cars, but
5S3 fewer than were handled at this point
In the corresponding week of 1893. The Big
Four dropped below tho loaded car move
ment of the corresponding week of 1S99 but
twenty-two loaded cars, the Vandalla
eighty-two and the Pennsylvania lines 664.
The Lake Erie & Western showed an In
crease of eighty-nine loaded cars, and the
Indiana, Decatur & Western also" showed
an Increased movement. Any decrease
shown at present Is not because of lack
of business, but Is due to car ßhortage,
local as well as through traffic being now
limited to cars the roads can furnish. The
Monon, the Indiana, Decatur & Western
and the Cincinnati, Hamilton &. Dayton
have no big systems like the Pennsylvania
or the Vanderbllt lines to help out ma
terially any. car shortage, and the fact Is
that the only cars the Indianapolis lines
can get to load with east-bound business
are those which come here loaded with
west-bound freight. Fortunately, tonnage
west-bound at present Is unusually heavy.
The best feature of the present situation
is that every pound of freight east, west.
north or south, through or local in char
acter. 13 carried at tariff rates. Business
In this Immediate territory Is seldom as
active with the roads, and with their best
efforts freight men are unable to furnish
cars as promptly as desired.' The packing
houses, cereallne mill and flouring mills
are calling loudly for cars. The live stock
traffic is again heavy. The new corn crop
is beginning to move quite freely, and so
bountiful are the fruit and vegetable crops
that more cars are required for these lines
of traffic. The table below shows the num
ber of loaded cars handled at this point for
the week ending Oct. 20, and for the cor
responding weeks of 1809 and 1X)3:

E. B. Thomas, president of the Erie Rail
way Company, closes his annual report by
saying: "It Is with great regret that the
board announces the death during the year
of Charles II. Coster. Ills wise counsels
and assistance are greatly missed by the
.board. The company also lost by death
the faithful and etflcient services of W. J.
Holmes, superintendent of telegraph, who
had been In the service of the company
and its predecessors . for the past forty-
four years." He then adds: "The excel
lent results of the year are due to the
hearty and loyal work of officers and em
ployes of the company, and the board taks
much pleasure in publicly announcing its
appreciation of their efforts and thanks
them for their fnithful service."

contribute to its erection.
The opinion prevails that at the next
meeting of the National Association of Gen
eral Ticket and Passenger Agents, an in
surance department will be organized. In
a number of instances prominent passenger
officials have died, leaving their families
aimost destitute, and an insurance depart
ment would afford them relief.

charge of their duties as heretofore.
Since the railroads stopped paying com

L. F. Loree, general manager of the
Pennsylvania lines west, who was on an
Inspection of the lines last week, on his
return from a trip over the Indianapolis &
Vincennes, said that but few divisions of
the Pennsylvania lines showed greater im

pared with that of five years ago than did
the Indianapolis & Vincennes, and Super
intendent Mansfield had-reason to be proud
of what had been accomplished since he
was appointed superintendent.
On Saturday the New York Central
opened to the public the new passenger

columns and wainscoting, artistic deco
rative finish in pure white, and the corru
gated ceiling of steel and colored glass,
dotted with bullseye electric lights, is said
to give it an appearance of massive ele
gance. The furniture Is in keeping with
the size and style of the room.
INSULTED WOMEN ON STREET.
Lon Good Also Struck a Detective and
Wns Roughly Handled.
Lon Good, of 128 South Davidson street,
was arrested yesterday by Detectives Ger
ber and Lancaster and charged with of
fending persons on the street and resisting
an officer, after an experience which he
will probably not soon forget. Gerber and
Lancaster were walking on Alabama street
and heard Good make indecent remarks to
Anna Scott, of the Marquette Hotel, and
Catherine Moore, of 417 East Market street.
The officers were on the opposite side of
the street ahd called to Good to move
long and behave himself. He dared ths
officers to come over to where he was, and
when they did cross the street he began
ustng vile language and threatening them.
When Gerber approached him Good put
his hand behind his back, as if to draw a
weapon. Lancaster saw this and made a
Jump to catch his arm. Good, before Lan
caster could prevent, threw a large rock,
vhich he took from his pocket, and struck
Lancaster on the back of the head, inflict
ing a deep gash. He then ran, followed
by the detectives,' who showed no mercy
when he was caught and attempted to
draw another weapon.

TALK ON IMPERIALISM
REV. J. CUMMIXG SMITH DISCUSSES
IT FUOJI RELIGIOUS VIEW.
The Universe Under the Imperialism
of GodThe Note of Imperial
At the Tabernacle Church yesterday
morning the Rev. J. Cummlng Smith
preached the first of a short series of ser
mons on "Political Banner Words." His
subject was "The Higher Imperialism."
"Jesus was double sighted. He beheld
the sown field and at once another field of
spiritual seed time and harvest rose into
vie. He beheld the son roving afar from
his home, and at once another prodigal
wandering from God rose Into view in the
vast ground. Paul was two-sensed. All
seers are intuitively conscious of the
spiritual sphere when the . material laws
are observed, for tte two kingdoms are
one in analogy and direction, and the dis
tinction between time and eternity is flim
sy. The word 'Imperialism' carries a mag
ical and agitating meaning. I leave to an
other platform the discussion whether our
Republic is truantly drifting into the perils
of empire and forfeiting our ancestral char
ters. The pulpit is not for politics except
when politics infringe upon the domain of
righteousness, and then the pulpit is
apostate that muzzles its voice. But to
every mind that lordly word 'imperialism'
leads away into vast spaces oi practical
truth as a woody avenue leads back to
vistas that charm the eye.
IMPERIALISM OF GOD.
"The universe Is under the fmpcriallsm of
God. That man has begun his truest
culture when he recognizes the sweeping
current of influences superior to himself.
In the material world It is the resistless
reign of law. In the moral realm It Is the
Irresistible though tedious progress of
truth and righteousness. In the domain of
truth God has revealed far-reaching and
dominating facts, such as the fatherhood
of God, such as the brotherhood of men,
euch as the need of harmony between God
and man, such as the potency of Calvary
to restore that lost harmony, such as the
priceless value of virtue and obedience to
Ills laws, such as the reasonableness of
an eternity where our character is carried
over. These truths Involve a true Imperial
ism. Heaven here or anywhere means har
mony with them. A man who violates these
truths courts his own degeneration, which
Is death. 1 He may be sincere in his op
position, but sincerity cannot serve a man
who closes his eyes to the lighu A man
may sincerely step over a precipice or sin
cerely drink a poisonous cup of chemical
liquid, but in either event he opposes in
exorable laws and must .ake the conse-
"It is true that tho general tone of the
Bible is persuasion, and not coercion, but
none the less it is true that he who shuts
himself against the argument of persuasion
really coerces his own protesting better na
ture to side with sin. and sin only ruins
as a divine law.
"In our time we need the note of im
perialism. In our recoil from the harsh
authorities of Puritanism we have oscil
lated too far and drugged our sterner moral
demands. Look abroad on the world s
vexed life and be as rosy an optimist as
you may and as I am. we cannot expel
the painful Impression that America is
catching the emlrch and leprosy of Paris.
There are too few under the leadership of
right, under the presidency of conscience
to the church. There is a temptation to
veil the mind of God, to tone down truth
till it chimes with current opinion, to mask
or muffle the stern truths till men come
to act as If God was a myth and eternity
an illusion. Here, again, we proclaim the
absolutism or God. He has revealed vast
and ineffaceable methods as the methods
of His government. To discount that high-
toned revelation of love is to dwarf our
own life. We have too frequently preached
a supple and emlable and trembling God,
and the mass of men gladly hall such an
agreeable gospel and continue in vice.
LENIENCY OF DIVORCE LAWS.
"We urge the imperially m of religion.
Look out on public life. What means the
leniency of divorce laws? Do we not ap
prove of one of our ablest Judges in his
attempt to check the crowds looking to
ward lax courts for divorce? Look at the
looseness of some home life, where the
plainest rules are set aside and the germ
of libertinism Is too often planted in the
nursery. Look at turbid, tortuous, un
scrupulous politics. No words are needed
to paint that abyss, and, what makes it
worse, nobody seems to care how low an
ebb our political morality reaches. What
mean these exposures of councilmen caught
in their own snares, and the apathy of the
public toward such a crafty offender?
What mean these accidents at railway
crossings and the relucnce or placid re
fusal of corporations to eiovate tracks when
a law compels them? Look everywhere,
and one sees a tendency to dodge laws, to
swerve from the right course as if no public
conscience existed to scourge such devia
tions. Is or is not our general moral sense
sleeping under opiates? Does not Inexcus
able negligence tend to nurse crime?
"History demonstrates again and again.
tirelessly, that the public will permit wrong
to go very far, and then public opinion,
when awakened to the danger, will rise in
a perfect storm of wrath and sweep the
plague out of the house. But public con
science is long-suffering In its torpor.
"One wearies of most of our haranguing
spellbinders. With some noble exceptions
in both parties, most of them catch at any
swindling argument to sway an audience
which, it not stupid, must detect the fal
lacy. Anything is fair In a campaign!
Where are the magnificent educators on
platforms who stoop to no personalities,
who employ no weapon of special pleading,

of undoubted fact? Such there are, but
they are too lew. The very word 'spell

"Our American Idolatry of mere success
without any discrimination as to how the
success Is achieved, is nothing but liber
tinism under a cloak. Our worship of
wealth without an emphasis on the meth
ods of making wealth is often a disguised
approval of highway robbery. We have no
quarrel with the magnate, but we insist on
manhood as the great necessity. We talk
about paramount issues; we speak s If
America would suffer if some particular
measure Is rejected at the polls, and it is
sane to lay stress on these issues; but the
paramount issue before the people is the
re-enthronement of rectitude, the abso
lutism of God.
"The basic infirmity is not some particu
lar Instance of inequity, but the general
wantonness and vagrancy In our higher
life. There is too. little reverence for the
great things. We set up our reason against
the reason of the Infinite. We deify our
self-will and forget the law that makes for
righteousness. We exalt our vulgarities.
We choose truth we like and shelve truth
that grates on our lower tendencies. Now,
since the evil has a deep, wide root, the
cure must go deep. It must come by a re
vival of moral strenuous education. In the
home, in the Fchool. In the church, in the
press, that quintet of human omnipo
tences, the accent must be put on erect
and glorious manhood.
NOT A MAN.
"He who overreaches a brother Is not a
man. He who brags over his llzardly trick

mium on any form of guilt that lowers our
moral nature has ceased to be a man. The
virile quality oozes out of any man who,
In public life or private, honors what dis
honors our humanity. Above all, tho ten
dency to reduce religion to sentimentalists
or convenience or fadlstn, rather than ev

solence and impertinence to our manhood.

THE HICKORY ELM CLUB.
Initiation of Dr. Fngleton How a Par
amount Iaane Is Made.
"The club will be In order," said the
president. "Captain Skidmonk will hand
me the ritual for the initiation, of coroners,
Lring In Dr. Fugleton and t will finish him
while I am In the humor."
The doctor was brought in and the pres
ident opened on him by Inquiring: "How
long have you been in the profession since
you quit the carpenter trade?"
"I have been practicing about fifteen
"Has your practice kept up with your
mal-practice pretty well during that time?"
"If I understand what you mean by ths
question, I think It has."
"Do you rent or own your own ceme
tery?" "You will pardon me, sir, but I can't see
what cemeteries have to do with my com
ing into this club."
"Never mind what you can't see, doctor;
just answer the questions as they are set
out in the ceremony of initiation."
"Well, sir, I neither rent nor own a ceme
tery'." "If you were called on to see a patient
down with hay fever, which would you un
dertake to cure first, the hay or the fever?"
"I see the pun, Mr. President. As the
hay would probably be already cured I
would go after the fever first."
"You're all right, doctor. Now, what Is
the difference between milk sick and mllK
sour? If you do not care to answer I will
ask you if it Is necessary for a coroner to
know the politics of the subject of an in
quest to be able to determine whether death
was caused by delirium tremens or by
falling in a well?"
"It would not be necessary. In my
"What is your politics, doctor?"
"I am supposed to be a Democrat."
"Old or new style?"
"I think I belong to what might be called
the new school."
"Then you expect to vote for Mr. Bryan,
oZ course. Has Mr. Bryan informed you or
any member of your family as to what he
Intends to do with reference to paying
salaries, pensions and the interest on gov
ernment bonds in silver dollars, halves,
quarters and dimes?"
"No, sir, I have no Intimation from him,
or from anybody authorized to speak for
him, as to how he proposes to establish
the silver standard, other than his promise
to open the mints to the free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold on equal terms,
without Italian or other foreign consent."

"Is it necessary to answer that ques
tion?" "No, sir, it is not absolutely neces
sary. You have the right to fall back upon
the ancient and time-worn privilege which
all modern Democrats have of thinking
one thing and saying another. The club
will take it for granted, that being a
coroner, you are Intelligent enough to tell
a dead cat-fish from a live sucker, and
that whatever your opinion of Mr, Bryan
may be, it will not interfere with the re
served right which we all claim, to prac
tice deceit and hyprocrlsy upon the peo
ple by pretending to believe that he is
not the colossal fraud and humbug that
Roosevelt has shown him to be. when you
know he is. With this understanding, you
may lay your hands on Captain Skidmonk
and repeat the obligation after me: "I,
Fitztyphus Fugleton, in - the presence of
these witnesses, do solemnly promise that
I will support all indefinable, inscrutable,
transient and impossible principles, tenets,
dogmas and doctrines of the Democratic
party now under the supreme. Imperial
control of William Jennings Bryan; I
promise to turn a deaf ear to all reason
when a Republican undertakes to argue
with me on Bryan as a dangerous dema
gogue, however much I may think so my
self. I promise to abide by all rules, regu
lations and by-laws of the Hickory Elm
Club, reserving the inalienable right to
object to. kick and protest against, any
nomination of the party, or any platform
thereof, but I promise that my Judgment
shall not be allowed to Interfere with my
duty to vote the ticket. In other words,
I promise to be a Democrat in everything
that the word Implies.
"Having taken the obligation you may
think you are a full-fledged member of
this club, but if I should leave you without
further Instructions your membership
would be of very little use to you, because
you couldn't get into this hall to save
your life without the password, which you
have not yet received. If you will advance
r.bout four feet and turn the side of your
head this way, I will give you the counter
sign in a low whisper. (He whispers:. The
password for this month is, 'Sic Semper
Polaris.') If you give It away you will hav?
cause to regret It. Before entering the
hall the door must be open. You will rap
seven or eight times and remain quiet
until Captain Skidmonk shows up. when
you will be admitted. The grand hailing
s'gn of distress until after election is:
'Poodle, boodle; who's got the boodle?'
When you hear that cry proceeding from
a member you will know at once what
the trouble is. You may now take a seat
over there by Colonel Snort, who will keep
you posted on the ever-changing para
mount." Philip Fungus was first to congratulate
thi doctor. "I was the last man taken in
before you," said he, "and I have never
enjoyed myself more in my life in the
same time than I have since I threw off
the restraints of conscience and joined this
club. I have learned a great deal about
human nature that I didn't know before."
"What is the most important thing you
have learned?" inquired Dr. Fugleton.
"The most Interesting thing I have
learned is, that it is a great deal easier
to be a Bryan Democrat than it Is to be
a Republican. A Bryan Democrat doesn't
have to strain his Intellect trying to get
at the right or the wrong of a thing. He
simply waits until one of the leaders of
the party throws a trotline across the cur
rent of public opinion and goes to fishing
for an issue. When something catches
tn one of the hooks and is drawn up into
the boat, the issue has been found. It
may be nothing more than an old boot
with a spur on it. or the carcass of a dead
dog; but it doesn't matter what it is, the
crowd can t tell from the shore whether -it
is dead or alive; whether it is a mud-turtle
or a Jack-salmon. When word has been
sent out that the river is full of em, mak
ing it dangerous to health, life and naviga
tion, the object at once becomes a para
mount issue, and we don't have to worry
about the unreasonableness .of the thing
for a minute."
And the club adjourned. W. S. II.

REPUBLICAN COUXCILMEX WAXT TO
Steps May Xot Be Taken, However,
Until the Grand Jury Has u
Chance to Act.
There seems to be no doubt that a quiet
scheme is on foot among the Republican
councilmen to take steps to bring Impeach
ment proceedings against Councilman John
M. Higglns, Democrat, who claimed to be
able to furnish protection to gamblers in
the city. Stories of alleged wrong doing
by Higglns come to light every day, and
he may be punished.
The Republican councilmen will not open
y stale that he will be impeached, but
there are some who go so far as to say
that if there were any hopes of the Council
voting to impeach Higglns, the step would
be taken at once. It has been talked
about In a quiet manner, and one Repub
lican councilman said, yesterday, that, as It
would take a two-thirds' majority to get
such a resolution through the Council, it
s feared the Democrats would not vote
for it. Another Republican said, last even-
ng, that it was likely the councilmen would
wait to see what action the grand jury J
would take on Higglns. Should the grand
Jury indict him. the resolution for im

cil at once, and it may be presented even
if the grand Jury fails to Indict.

Every one who was a part of the prelimi
nary events which culminated in the civil
war sees In these harangues of Mr. Bryan
and the outrages to which they have al
ready led an exact reproduction of the ani
mus and the local outrages that preceded
the culmination of the controversy of fifty
years ago. Then, as now, the harangues
and the mob violence were perpetrated in
the name of the Democratic party, and.
strangely enough, the same high-sounding
slogan was tne watchword. Then murders
were committed and riots provoked in the
name of "squatter sovereignty," which was
only another form of claiming the consent
of the governed, and militarism was de
nounced whenever it was proposed to in
terfere against border ruffianism with the
army of the country. In short, there is not
a claim put forth by Mr. Bryan for his sup
port that was not made by the slave power
and Its tools in 1&6 against the election of
Mr. Fremont. It is the same spirit, and, as
nearly as possible, the identical class of
arguments. The beginning of the end of
slavery was the fight to allow the border
ruflians to exclude free-state men by vio
lence, under the plea of self-government.
But the parallel goes further. When such
men as Morton and "Jim" Lane and Gen
eral Dumont refused to go with the Demo
cratic party they were followed by the
most opprobrious epithets. To call a man
an Abolitionist in those days was little less
offensive than to call him a thief they
were intent on stealing "niggers" was the
popular thought, and that was what these
men were called, and the prejudice of the
unthinking was thus turned against them.
Here is where the Journal's blunder comes
In. It often speaks of the changes of front
of such mn as Eckels and English and
Denby as acquisitions to the Republican
party, and they are. but such a claim at
once subjects them to opprobrious names.
"Just what we might expect of them,"
say Mr. Bryan's mouthpieces, If he does
not say it himself. "They are born pluto
crats, natural aristocrats, bloated bond
holders, and with the Republicans is their
normal place." And they use th fact to
Intensify the fear of the Anarchists that
their liberties if not their lives are in dan
ger. Hence my advice is to say but little
about such acquisitions. It only gives Mr.
Bryan and his kind an additional reason
why there should be a class of people
whose one work is to be the denouncing of
corporations and any degree of wealth
above the average accumulations of wage
earners, and thos'c who earn nothing.
Just what will be the immediate result
of this line of policy no one can tell; what
will be the ultimate result none can doubt;
the time will come when the Governor of
any State may travel through any other
State and express his views on any ques
tion without being in danger of a mob In
the interest of an opposing opinion.
Through what throes we must pass to
reach this condition no mortal can divine.

Earl Thomas, who purchased, Saturday,
the Star saloon, at 134 West Market street,
from Fred Metzhetier. was wondering yes
terday what the further experience of his
first effort at embarking In business In the
city would be.
He came Saturday from Greencastle.
Shortly after his arrival he confided to
some one that he had money to invest in a
business. .He was told of the Metzheizer
saloon, and, after some preliminaries,
bought the place for $250, paying $150 down
and agreeing to piy the other 1100 in in
stallments of 13 a week. His first expe
rience was with a lot of "grafters" and f
"chair warmers." who insisted upon being
given free drinks for their "good will" and
future patronage. Then a man, said to
be James Brannan. for whom the police are
looking, passed for a five-dollar bill two
old Madison Ai Indiahaiolis Railway five
dollar scrip certificates, which had been
pasted tosethcr. Then a free-ior-all light,
in which Metzheizer, tho former proprietor,
was a principal, caused the police to arrest
the participants and a number of the
"patrons" whom Thomaa had been kind
enough to supply with free drinks.
Among those arrested were three women,
two of them colored, for whom, Thomas
was told, it would be policy for him to fur
nish ball. He went to the police etation to
do so, and before returning to the saloon
took enough liquor to make him aleepy, so
he retired at once upon reaching the saloon.
