We read last night in the columns of our esteemed contemporary, "The Evening Item," that a compromise had been entered into, at the Republican love feast, whereby C. R. Unthank of this city would with draw from the contest for district chairman and be appointed a delegate to the national convention at Chicago. Now, it is a well-known fact that it takes at least two parties to make a compromise, but it seems there Avas only one party to the com promise mentioned above. The whole affair regarding the compromise - .1 1 1 . t n . n . . -w- . was only a subterfuge by which or turougn wmen the editor ol the item could come down from his lofty flight. There seems not to be a word of truth in it. The Palladium is well informed on this subject and is thoroughly warranted in the above jtatement. Mr. Unthank went to Con nersville yesterday as a candidate and the editor of the Item, so we are told, boasted that he carried the votes of' twenty-six delegates in his vest pocket, but, when it came to a real "show down," he could deliver only two, and one of them was his own. The other delegate favorable to Mr. Unthank proposed that he (Mr. Unthank) withdraw his name as the con vention was practically unanimous for Mr. Thayer. This is the truth and nothing but the truth. Mr. Unthank should devoutly pray, as a fellow once did, to be " de livered from his fool friends." The Republicans of the sixth district show their independence and good horse sense when they repudiate the dicta tions of a mugwump newspaper. We are warranted in saying this because every utterance in connection with this whole affair, by the . Item, has been a kind of dictation that the intelligent; :deiegate does not care tc hear, much less to heed. N The true Republican is one in defeat as well as in victory and we believe that Mr. Unthank 's party loyalty is just as sincere as it ever was and that he will line up as usual with the party in county, district, state and nation. ' The editor of the Item has made numerous trips to Indianapolis to tell Senator Beveridge that he had opposition in the sixth district, but, of course, the Item would line them up." Yes, it is an easy matter tc line up one's friends, and the Item knew that no other than friends of the junior senator lived, moved and had their being in the sixth district. The Item's antagonism to Mr. Watson is well known, and the editor has never disguised the fact, but yesterday's indorsement of our con gressman leaves the Item out in the cold, so far as Republican sympathy toward it is concerned. ' - - r ,' .: ' l r-- f- The Item has paid its respects to other Republican leaders in Wayne county with about as little success a it had in having Mr. Unthank elect ed district chairman. It should learn a lesson from such experiences as jesieruay s ami others, not tar disttnt in the past, that no individual can dictate to the Republican party. A paper may advocate a cause either of an individual or a principle and may. influence people in favor ; of; such cause or individual, but at the sam time it must have a fixed .base to work from. , Mr. Unthank has not the shadcw of a chance to go to. the Republi can national convention as a delegate 'from this district. We have it from the very best authority that Uiere is no agreement to that end un less it is between himself and the editor of the Item. If this is the case, it will result like the district' chair-manship did yesterday at Conners ville. - " 7 ' ' ' THE DISTRICT CONVENTION "The district convention at Conne,rsville yesterday was a striking ex ample of the harmony that prevails among the rank and file of the Repub lican party in the Sixth Indiana Congressional District. Col. Thayer's election was conceded by the party since last July and it was only a mat ter for the delegates to meet and express the wishes of the majority of the Republicans in the district. Col. Thayer has been' holding the posi tion by favor of appointment, and, during the time, has shown his ability V. licjyuuillilll JCdUCi U.I1U 11UW 1 11 III 11C IJClS UCCU W LlltS Jjail.l.J IX) and by a unanimous vote, he will be more and more encouraged by this expression of renewed confidence, in his loyal leadership and ardent devo tion to the principles of the grand old party. The hearty and enthusiastic indorsement of Hon. James E. Watson, representing the district in the lower House of Congress, was no surprise to the friends of this distinguished leader in both state and national poli tics. piMiHi The people recognize in Mr. Watson a statesman with an unswerving purpose to serve his constituents with that unselfish devotion that always characterizes the faithful public servant. The resolutions passed by the convention were comprehensive and an emphatic statement of true Republican principles. They leave no doubt in the minds of the people of the district concerning the attitude of the Republican party on the great public questions now pending in the na tional congress. COINS Demand for ott of Date Pieces To be Used as Curios. (From the Portland Oregonian.) Recent mention of the disappear ance of the $2.50 gold piece from cir culation and the premium this coin commands as a curio have set many to rummaging in old pocket-books and the bottoms of cash boxes and drawers in search of odd or out of date coins. Some have found a $2.50 piece, but not many. The $3 piece, once quite common, but always a sort of curiosity, is oftener found, and many have specimens of the lit tle gold coins representing 25 cents and 50 cents each, which were not minted by the government, and prob ably have not so much gold in them as they represent. They used to pas as coin, but were never in general circulation, beingo easily lost that they soony became scarce. One o 21, 21 , advance. .$1 60 . 25 . 8 00 LABEL the handsomest coin relics seen is a $10 . gold piece bearing the mint stamp of 1799., It is larger than the present $10 gold piece! The owner has it hung on a band and wears it as a charm on his watch chain. The owner says he has refused an offer of $150 for this relic. The old oc tagonal $50 pieces were quite com mon in California in early days, when gold dust was largely used as a circulating medium. They were made of pure gold, and, while they had not the elegant finish of the gold coins minted by the government in ' those days, many still remember them as the handsomest coin they ever saw. Many people now would consixler them handsome on account of the $50 in them. Tlie annual January Clearance Sale is now in progress. THE GEO. H. KNOL- RURAL DELIVERY IIPR0VED BETTER SERVICE TO BE REN DERED IN THE FUTURE. POSTOFFICE AFFAIRS Talked Over in a General Way Ap priations Made. Washington, D. C, Jan. 12. Swiftness in delivery and a greater extension of the postal service than ever before these are the keynotes of Postmaster General H. C. Payne's annual report, made public yesterday, nessed the winds to aid in the work, rassed the winds to aid in the work. Furclad Eskimos behind swift rein deer are carrying mail over snoAvy wastes in Alaska, while dark-skinned Porto Rican postmen are plodding along their routes through tropic jun glesbut even greater improvements are sought. - The department asks for an appro priation to investigate the feasibility of using the telephone in communi cating special delivery letters to those along rural routes. In New York the sacks of mail may be sent whirling through pneumatic pipes direct from the postofliee to the ear, and returned in the same manner. The free delivery system is expand ing more rapidly than any branch of the service, according to the report. The estimated expenditure for the fis cal year beginning July 1, for city and rural delivery is $47,000,000, an amount equal to that expended for the maintenance of the entire postal service in 18S4. The department can afford it, the report contends, because in the fiscal year ended June 30 last the gross revenues were nearly $1,500,000 in excess of the estimates for that year. In the same time the rural delivery routes were nearly doubled. There were 15,119 separate routes in opera tion . on June 30, and the increase during the present year is expected to be great. Because of the questionable meth ods employed by carriers on some of the rural routes, the report urges that the privilege accorded them by Congress permitting the delivery of express matter be rescinded, and that the pay of the carriers be increased. The report was delayed because of the fraud investigations. The " house-cleaning," in the opinion of the Postmaster General, has cleared the service of dishonest employes. He says : : "This investigation has resulted in a complete reorganization of some of the bureaus of the department, and it is hoped has eradicated all dishonest irregular and criminal practices, which the investigation has developed as having been in existence for sev eral j-ears. ensions for decrepit employes or those injured in the service are asked. In addition to this, the following recommendations are made to Con gress : - That where a clerk or letter carrier has been twenty-five years in the ser vice and shall have attained the age of 65 years, the Postmaster General shall be empowered, upon the recom mendation of the postmaster, to em ploy a substitute for such clerk or carrier, which substitute shall re ceive not to exceed two-thirds of his salary, the other one-third to go to such clerk or letter carrier. That congress earnestly consider the propriety of granting an annuity to railway postofliee clerks who are permanently disabled in line of duty or worn out through long, faithful service. That a sum of $300,000 be appro priated to be immediately available, for the purpose of enabling the de partment to continue the installation of additional rural free delivery routes until the 'end of the present fis cal year, and that Congress authorize an increase of thirty-six in the field force in connection with rural free delivery service. Mr. Payne declares that if it were not for the introduction of the rural free delivery routes the department -would be more than self-sustaining at the present time. BIG STOCK! .

It was hard-fought and ' rough, and both teams lost a goal on fouls. Way and Cunningham got mixed up in the early part' of the game and were each fined $2. The Indians played an ag gressive game. The Journal says of the game: " "After the -first period had pro gressed over four minutes with neither side scoring Bone started down the floor with the ball. Pierce pilfered the sphere by a clever trick and passed it to MeGilvray. There was a double pass and MeGilvray hooked the ball into the Richmond netting. After that score Bone tried to jump the referee's whistle and after he was warned MeGilvray wor the rush. The second goal credited to the Indians was made by MeGil vray on a pretty pass from Pierce. MeGilvray added one in ihe second and then Richmond scored two. When the third period' began there were two fouls on each team. MeGilvray made a beautiful goal, and in a short time the third foul was called against the Indians. The Quakers worked hard to tie the score, but Cunning ham's rough tactics caused a third foul to be called against the Quakers. MeGilvray scored the last goal in the game.

Another ten days will see half of the Western league roller polo race completed, and the general shift that has taken place 'during the past week indicates that it will be several weeks before the first three teams in the finish can be definitely picked. The local team, which was believed by Tim Murnane, .the eastern . sporting writer as being the , mostikely to win the pennant in the first race of the Western league, has displayed great form for the past ten days, winning a majority of games and scaring two shut-outs. It is believed by local polo enthusiasts that Marion is certain to .finish among the first three. Richmond is also picked' as one of the trio, and third choice now rests between Anderson and India napolis. Marion Leader.

State Factory Inspector McAbee has begun an investigation of- the means of escape from polo rinks of the state, and will immediately send deputies to visit most of the rinks. Indiana now has eleven rinks where professional league polo is played. Some of the rinks, Mr. McAbee is in formed, are overcrowded. He inspected the rink at Muncie and recommended that doors be made in both the east and west sides of the building. The only recommendation made for the rink at Anderson is that the doors be kept unlocked at all times. These rinks are the only ones that have been investigated by his department. Building inspector Stanley may make some recommenda tions for the Indianapolis rink. The rinks in this city, Elwood, Ma rion, Terre Haute, Ft. Wayne, Laf ayette, Logansport and Kokomo will all be investigated and the proper recommendations will be made. Mr. McAbee will also investigate the opera houses in the smaller cities that in many cases are fire traps. HOW IS THIS?
