On yaar y mall, paataaa ! - S3.00 OMM.U1 " " M Oh waak. y rrlr ..... .06 Are the police aware that the spit- tic ir ordinance is in force now in Richmond? Republicans of the sixth congress ional district never were more har monious than they are at present. There are practically no dissentions in their ranks. A special from Muncie in today's Chicago Inter Ocean states that Con gressman Watson of this district will be a candidate for governor q suc , csed Gov. Durbin. An axcellent likeness of Mr. Watson accompanies the dispatch. Cetterville is now a suburb of Richmond, and a very nice one, too. The trolley line has brought us to gether. Centerville people can now attend entertainments in this city as conveniently as if they lived within our corporation. Gov. Durbin has appointed Charles II. Bundy of Marion a member of the board of control of the state prison to fill the vacancy made by the resig nation of Uriah Culbert. Mr. Bundy is a newspaper man of ability and vim. Until recently he was one of the proprietors of the Marion Chron icle. The Cincinnati Enquirer has a dis patch from Columbus stating that Dr. J. E. Lowes of Dayton will be a candi late for the Republican nomina tion for governor of Ohio two years hence. This i3 a new departure for the doctor. His stronghold hitherto has been to dictate the nomination of others and keep out of official races himself. As a candidate he will probably have some experience that is new to him. It looks as if Gorman would suc ceed Wellington as United States senator from Maryland. There are no doubt many Republicans in that state who would prefer the former to the latter. Wellington is the man, and the otly man of any standing in the country, who expressed indiffer ence hen President McKinley was assassinated. The people of Mary land, without regard to party, are evidently disposed to relegate him to private life. One of the most sensational murder trials in the annals of this state ended in Ft. Wayne yesterday by the con viction of Charles Dunn, aged 61, of the murder of a ten year old girl. Dann was sentenced to imprisonment for life. The evidence was all cir cumstantial, but it pointed so plainly tj the guilt of the accused that a ver d'et of guilty was unavoidable. The fact, however, that the verdict was fcased solely on circumseantial evi dence no doubt saved Dunn from the allows. We print herewith a communica tion from Rev. F.M.Kemper in reply to the request for mere specific in formation concerning his charge that there are improper books in the Morrisson Reeves library. While Mr. Kemp, r does not name the ob jectional books, for reasons which he states, he reasserts, in stronger lan guage than that usei in bis sermon, that there is vile and corrupting lit erature in the public library and that he is prepared to give he names of the objectionable books to the prop er persons, tie has turnishea this office with these names, and it is our opinion that the matter is of suffi cient importance to warrant thor ough investigation by the trustees of the library.

The Old Dan Tucker companv came here from Cambridge City and is at Winchester tonight. The tramp actor's lameness last night was the result of an accident at Knightstown. During one of bis specialties a rope broke and he fell fifteen feet, knock ing out several of his teeth and sus taining other injuries. TONIGHT. The lecture by Ernest Thompson- Seton at the Gennett this afternoon was attended by a large audience of ladies and school children who were so delighted that tbey have talked of little else since. Tonight the regu lar course lecture occurs and the au dience will be as large and choice as Richmond is capable of giving. ! lhe success 01 Ernest Thompson-, Seton on the lecture platform has ! been phenomenal. During the past season he has spoken twice a day in order to comply with the demand for his services. Everywhere crowded houses have welcomed him. and al ways, on afternoon occasions, the greater portion of the audience has been children. The charm of Thomp-son-Seton's art is in its simplicity, its novelty and the flavor of the for est which he imparts to all his de scriptive work. Whether he is ana lyzing the tracks of the hare, imitat ing the challenge to battle of the bull elk, or repeating the mocking bark of the pin gopher, he is all the time carrying his audience farther back from the foothills into the Rockies and getting them nearer to the true l.fe of Nimrod. The whole humar family is his public, because every human being loves wild animals. SATCRDAV H;iIT. The story of "When We Were Twenty-One" briefly outlined is that of a vouth's infatuation for a rnfirprt ' hall siDger and his rescue be self- saenncing love. The orphan son of an old friend, he was committed, to as a child, by his dying father to tbe affectionate care of Richard Carew and a trio of old f iends who have acted as guardians.. Sharing the home of Richard Carew and the "Imp," as the boy is called, is the widow Erricson in the capacity of housekeeper, and her lovely daugh ter, Phyllis. The daughter and the ward are engaged to be married as a resulting of well meant machinations but there is an absence of love on either side. Such is the situations when the play begins, and the story is carried forward by the boy's in fatuation for the "Firefly," as she is called; a confusion of correspondence due to two Dicks, boy and guardian, a self-sacrificicg assumption of a compromising compact by the elder and the eventual explanation leading tj tbe raaumi tion of their earlier attachment, and awakening of the youth to his folly, and the dis covery that the daughter has all along loved the middle aged bachelor guardian. The result is happiness all around. "Some years ago while at Martins bar, V. Va., I was taken with cholera morbus, which vaa followed by diarrhoea. The doctor's medicine did me no good. I was advUed to get a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which I did, and it cared me sound and well." -G. A. Morris, Ercbree ville. Pa. Sold by A. G. Luken fc Co. and W.

OTHER PEOPLES' M0XE1 Was Used In Speculation By Charles D. Thompson Whose Well I.aiJ Plans Did Not Materialize. He Has and Made a Written Is Now A waiting at His Home. Confession Arrest Port Huron. Mich., Nov. 8. Charles D. Thompson, supreme finance keep er, of the supreme tent. Knights of Maccabees, is a defaulter in the sum of $57,000. He has made. a. written confession of his defalcation to the supreme commander of the order. Thompson is a prominent vessel and tug man of this city, and the affair has created great excitement. Thomp son was heavily bonded in the National Surety company of New York and the Fidelity and Deposit company of Baltimore, and the order therefore is protected from loss. Thompson made no effort to escape after his defalcation was discovered. He is now at his home awaiting the action of the bonding companies. The first intimation of the shortage came last Tuesday afternoon, when Supreme Commander Marpy and Supreme Record Keeper George J. Sigle were checking over the finance keeper's books. An error was discov ered, and they called Thompson's at tention to it. He said that he would take the books and papers home with him that night and look it up. Wed nesday morning he came to Supreme Commander Markey's office and con fessed that his accounts were short $57,000. He then and there signed a written confession of the embezzle ment. Vn examination of the books followed and the shortage was dis closed. Supreme Commander Markey yesterday afternoon gave out a state ment in regard to it. The companies on Mr. Thompson's bond were then notified of the shortage and represen tatives of each are now on their way to Port Huron. Thompson is not un- j der arrest, but says tha. he expects j to be arrested and prosecuted, and is prepared to pay the penalty of his ! breach of trust. The heavy loss sustained by the Thompson Towing and Wrecking com pany of this city, of which Thompson is a member, on the steamer Harlem, which they raised from the bottom of Lake Superior, is responsible for the defalcation. Thompson said yester day afternoon that he used the funds of the order in this enterprise, which5 proved very unprofitable, as the ex pense of raising and refitting the craft was so great that she had to be sold at a loss, it is said, of $75,000 instead of a profit. It is expected an effort will be made by Thompson's friends to effect a settlement with the bond ing companies. APPUCsE KOH CI.KVEl.AKD Tbe Only Ks-President iiiveit an Or ation At PittshurK Pittsburg. Nov. 8. The exercises celebrating founder's day at the Car negie institute, which have come to be recognized as an annual event of great Interest not only to the people of Pittsburg but te those of other cit ies, were held in Music Hall yesterday afternoon. Seldom If ever before has the occasion been so interesting and attended by so many people. Long before the hour set for commencing the exercises the capacity of the hall was strained and the doors had to be closed, barring out at least 2,000 dis appointed people, who had stood in line for a long time hoping to gain ad mission. Aside from the natural in terest attaching to the opening of the institute's winter season of art and music, the presence of former Presi dent Grover Cleveland as orator of the day and of Mrs. Cleveland as hon or guest served to augment the desire of the people to participate In the exercises. The entrance of Mrs. Cleveland Into one of the boxes was the occasion of hearty and prolonged applause. Hardly had this noise sub sided when another outburst greeted the appearance of the ex-president on the stage. 1 he vast audience received the distinguishd guest by rising and giving expression to its pleasure by handclapping and waving of handker chiefs. Mr. Cleveland's address was marked by considerable applause and the appreciation of the audience was expressed in close attention to the speaker throughout and in hearty ap plause when he closed.
