the Indian.
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.
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.

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 all bis walks of life he never for

man. He was charitable in giving
no only of his money but his counsel

Mr. Culver, of Culver Military
tcademy. offered a brief prayer.
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. C A , as he knew it from
working with them as secretary. The

Her Sad Death and Funeral
A Broken Heart.
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
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
Is Harley Border, Who Did
The Westcott for
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

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

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. " . ; : :

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
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
