BICHMOMD DA I'L In Honor of Governor Mount And President Harrison At East Main Street Church. Second Vice President Sharon E. Jones presided over the devotional meeting which opened with the singing of ' Blessed Assurance," and "All Hail the Power," led by Mr. Hilli, and a prayer by Bev. Allen Jay. followed by brief address s by H. P. Town, of Terre Haute, the new state president of the association, and Mr. Lelly of Indianapolis, first vice president. Various reports were received the first being that of the railroad branch from their afternoon meeting. Su perintendents Galloway of the Big Four were quoted largely from their remarks in the afternoon. The en rollment of the railroad branch was not so large the past year as the previous one.but attendance at meet ings had been better. Mr. Iglehart of Greencastle read the report of the college delegates. A letter was received from A. W. Lamb an Dariham ttudent, now a mission-; ary in Mexico. Mrs. Harris of Terre Haute report ed for the women's auxiliary. There were 12 delegates and 14 yisitors present. Reports show progress and improvement. "Like unto a home without a man, is a Y. M. C. A, without an auxiliary" declared Mrs. Harris. Mr. Colton, secretary of the inter national committee, made an address on "The Christian Student's Ap pointment to a Kingdom." The ad dress related the ris-ing of the Y. M. C. A, and the student's voluntary organization for foreign missions, which now results in at !east 300 men per year going into this work.

Wilbur, state secretary of' Ohio, led in prayer, and several j hymns were sung while wait-! ing for Governor Durbin to arrive. Ou account of a late train he . did not get in until y o'clock, and j was then greeted by the audience j rising to their feet. He was intro-j duced by the presiding cflicer and ( delivered a short address. i VYe were assembled, he said, to pay proper tribute to the memory of two distinguished citizens of the state who had gone to the undiscovered country; and yet. though they were gone, their works still lived after them. In his short incumbancy of the office of governor he had been called upon three times to issue proclamations in regard to the deaths of great citizens. He paid a high tribute first to President McKinley, whose name from henceforth will be ranked beside that of Washington I and Garfield. His Christian char- j acter and his dependence on the God ! of our fathers was noted. He was ! faithful to the end and is at : peace. Of tbe other two, i Governor Mount and General Har-' rison he spoke with deep feeling. : They were Christians willing work- ( ers in the field of Christ. General Harrison was one who regarded his religion as a privilege. As Presi dent, continuallv bearing burdens, his every action was cnaractenzea by . his dependent for direction upor ' the giver of all good. In civil life he : strictly conformed to moral ideas. He met death as he had met all other; vicissitudes, unfalteringly and with- out fear. j James A- Mount, too, was a Chris- tian. It can be truly said of him that he was a man of the people and for tbe people. Thrice armed by Christian faith he feared no foe. . From early youth his Christian char- i acter was conspicuous. His devotion j to the church was so well understood ; as to require no eulogy. . lie found strength in : the church, the Sunday-school j and the Y. M. C. A. and the Bible t classes. Gen. HarnsoT said of him : " . , u . ;ya ' in an eloquent inou.e u , Students Appointment to a King his conscience with him always.

Memorials of Governor Mou nt were offered by the railroad branch, re counting his valued services, and teudering sympathy to Mrs. Mount; also by the executive and advisory committee. Similar memorial with regard to Gen. Harrison was also read. Thev were on motion adapted as the sentiment of the convent'on. Thomas C Dav, of Indianapolis, who served on the advisory com mittee with Gen. Harrison spoke in memory of the two departed mem bers of the committee Gee. Harri son and Gov. Mount. His tribute was peculiarly t uehing from the close acquaintance with Mr. Harri son, whom he pronounced great as a statesman, great as a lawyer, great as a Christian and greatest as a Christian. -He sought first the kingdom of God and all the honors of the world wer given him. Mr. Stacy, state secretary, gave an account of the work done bv Gen eral Harrison and Governor Mount, the actual service they performed in the Y. M.

The funeral of Mary Conwell,"Pus y," as she was known amoctr hr friends at the Zpicopal church this niirning, was a very tenae- and touching one. The church was tilled with fr ends who bad known and loved hr in other davs and who knew the sadness which bad entered into hT life in ttie past year. The Ils-v.' Mr. Gr.inis conducted the services and Miss Gaston, who pre- sided at tbe oryan, seemed to play from the heart. Her reuditioa of Ccopin s funeral march was a re quiem, ar d seemed to b? her own iribute to a dead friend of girlhood days The pall bearers were Frank Spinning. Frak Reed. Mark Stim inl. Wrflt- r Vaughan, Jesse Rreves, and Jeff Ferguson. The remains were accompanied to the grave by a lartre concourse of friends. The death of Miss Cjnwe' wa a very sad one she really died of a broken hert. She was the last of her fa-n ly. There were a mother. Mrs. Mary Con well, and twodaugi teis, and oue son, Frank, who was killed on the railroad etween here and Logansport many years ago, and tn perfect unity between them was n.;tuble. fcailie, one nf the sisters. 'noiarust is New. ork and died t?iivi. Ttjspfrtg the mother died, anf Mary wa inconsolable. It was feared by her friends that her mind would fad imder he shock, and that it was affected is kcown. Some months ago she went to Anderson to live with her mother's sister, but was never i-atisfied there. Recently she was visited by Miss Men dum and later by the Misses Jack son and was much depressed when thr-y came away. Wednesday niijht when she retired she was much exhausted and requested not to be called very early if she should be asleep. In the morning her aunt called her at about 9 o'clock, but she answered that she wished to sleep longer. After a time she was called again and no response could be gottea. Medical assistance was called and she was found in an un conscious condition from which she never rallied. She died from heart failure. 0DITEA BEAT Is Harley Border, Who Did The Westcott for $14.50. Officer Winters went to Logans port after Harley Border, who is wanted on an affidavit from the clerk of The Westcott for jumping a board bill for $14 50, but returned without him, as he is wanted there worse than be is here. Border, when he came here, claimed to be a drummer for a Balti more oyster house, and acted straight enough until he jumped his board. He is a Jrw, and a nice looking fel low, but seems to have fallen through an idea that Indiana people were very easy. It is said that after he went broke at The Westcott be worked in a restaurant here for a few days before goiDg away. From here he went to New Castle and after he left Tod Winslow of the Bundy house missed an overcoat. While at New Castle, the Courier says, he was in a beastly state of intoxica tion. The overcoat has not yet been recovered. t Logansport Border was arrest ed charged with stealing a pair of sugar tonges from the Barnet house, where be stopped, and yesterday plead not guilty and was bound ovor to court in the "sum of 1150 and sent to jaiL The Reporter adds: "Border is full of confidence and is not cat down by his predicament. He has plenty of conceit and insists that bis ombarrassment is due simply to tbe failure of bis firm to send Mm ez- penae money promptly. " . ; : : Postoffffice Robbed. Rollersville, O., Nov. 23.

Such a Policy Would Settle the Indian (Question in a ticiseratioii Suvs ilr. Join s. Washington, Nov. 23. A policy which, it is contended, will settle the entire Indian question within a gen eration is announced by Commission er of Indian Affairs William A. Jones, in his annual report just made public His plan is to give the Indian oppor tunity for self-support, the same pro tection of his person and property as is given others, throw htm upon his resources, and to enforce on him re alization of the dignity of labor and the importance of building and main taining a home for himself. Mr. Jor.es says that at the outset the Indian must have aid and instruction, and necessaries, doubtless, will have to ba furnished him until his labor becomes WILLIAM A JOSK9. productive- TTatii the-Jpt'JLin bas b- coiue a paix ot ine i-on:iiiuuiiy in which he lives, day schools, the com missioner says, should be established at convenient places where the Indian may learn enough for ordinary busi ness transactions. The key to tht whole situation, the commissioner suggests, is the home. The larger and more powerful tribes, he adds, are located In an arid region, on un productive reservations, often in a rig orous climate, where there is no chance to make even a living. In these cases something should be done quickly toward placing such Indians In a position where they can support themselves. Commissioner Jones says the cutting off of rations from all Indians except those who are in capacitated from earning a support has had very gratifying results and if followed up ultimately will lead to the abolition of the reservation and the absorption of the Indian into our body politic. lie makes the emphatic state ment that the present Indian educa tional system, taken as a T-hoIe, is not calculated to produce the results that were anticipated so hopefully and may be added to the obstacles to in dependence and self-support, under which class Mr. Jones has placed in discriminate issues of rations, periodi cal distribution of large sums of mon ey, and the general leasing of allot ments. In the last 33 years, the re port says, over $240,000,000 has been spent on an Indian population not ex ceeding 180.000. Notwithstanding this the Indian is still on his reservation, being fed, money is still being pail him, he is etlll dependent on the gov ernment for existence, and he is Uttle if any nearer the goal of independence than he was 30 years ago, and If the present policy is continued, he will get little if any nearer in 30 years to come."
