"JUST-AS-GOOD" FUEL A Substitute for Coal Inventsd by an Indiana Man. Fort Wayne, Ind., Jan. 18. W. P. Denny, patent attorney, has arrived home from Washington, whera he in duced the patent office to grant a pat ent on bicolonite, a composition fuel, Invented by Charles H. Carpenter of Decatur. The patent office had previ ously refused a patent on the ground that previous experience had shown such inventions to be failures. Several hundred pounds of the fuel were subjected to tests of the most vigorous character and the result con vinced the officials that the fuel makes as much heat as anthracite, is as clean as vulcanized rubber, which it resem bles, and is odorless, with no soot, clinkers and but little ash. It costs one-fifth the price of anthracite. The inventor ssys the materials are found on every farm. Mighty Mean Thieves. Hagerstown, Ind., Jan. 18. For sev eral weeks a country neighborhood four miles norih of Hagerstown has been so thoroughly infested by petty thieves that it is said no family in a circuit of . several square miles has es caped loss. The thieves take any thing they can carry, from poultry to farm implements. A small church of the United Brethren denomination stands in the vicinity. Lately the sis ters of the church had purchased a new carpet and new window shades, and otherwise furnished the church nicely. The thieves broke into the church, tore up the carpet and re moved the shades and got away with them without leaving any trace to fol low them by. Tramps Take Revenge. Sophia, Ind., Jan. 18.

Tramps had become a nuisance in this part of the country, staying usually in school houses at night visiting farmers dur ing the day for food.

A number of destruc tive fires have followed. - r Will Pay Creditors in Full. Laporte, Ind., Jan. 18.

The visit of William J. Bryan to Indianapolis is already bearing fruit, and it is fruit which will eventually be harvested to make up a brilliant Republican victory In the site. That Bryan was not wanted in Indiana Is known to all the politicians, both Democrats and Repub licans. A few of his immediate follow ers went ahead and brought him Lere. This was done without consulting par ty leaders generally, and there is a plan on foot among some of the other element of the party to pay Bryan aok in his owi coiml The plan ie to orgamise a baaquet which shall be kaown as an anti-Bryan meeting pure and simple. To this all the leading Democrats of the city, with many from surrounding counties are to be invited. That it will be possible to drum up a large erowd is a foregone conclu sion. The leaders of the movement propose to gather their forces just to show Bryan and his followers that the real sentiment of the men who make candidates and dictate platforms i3 not with the Nebraskan. As yet the plans have not taken definite shape. No one seems to be willing to take the responsibility of the movement on his shoulders. There are a number of men, and Mayor Holtzman is one of them, who are understood to be parties to the scheme, but they are not adver tising the fact. Still, when the time comes it is said there will be such a crowd as to startle the Bryan people. The latter are indignant that Demo crats should think of organizing any kind of a meeting under the name of anti-Bryan. This close calling of the factions will result in a great deal of harm to the party and the Republicans will profit. Indiana is to entertain the national convention of the Prohibition party, and Indianapolis is the city that has been selected for the purpose. This is a matter of congratulation to the busi ness organizations of the city as well as to the Prohibition workers who were anxious that this should be se lected as the convention city. Indian apolis made a bid for the meeting to the national committee, but Kansas City was selected. The Missourians failed to make good the guarantees they offered for taking care of the con vention, although they were given thirty days in which to do so, and as the matter was allowed to go by de fault, the executive committee met and picked out Indianapolis as the con vention city. There will be 1,200 dele gates to the convention and as many alternates. In addition it is expected that there will be several thousand visitors. Tomlinson hall has been en gaged for the meeting and the conven tion will be held there. This will make the second national political convention that has met there in the last ten years, as the national gold Democratic convention of 1896 was held in this hall. ' The proposed amalgamation of the rival organizations of Spanish-American war veterans is bound to be ac complished, according to Captain Wm. E. English, who is at the head of the Spanish-American war veterans' or ganization. Captain English and Ma jor Megrew, who is at the head of the Spanish war veterans association, ex pect to have a conference this week to arrange most of the details of amal gamation. The committees named by the two organizations to map out a plan of union are empowered to act so that the recommendations that the two presiding officers will make can be carried out by the ratification of the committees. Captain English says he is very anxious that the two organ izations should amalgamate, and he says he knows Major Megrew also is anxious for the change. "It will mean sacrifices for both sides," Captain Eng lish said, "but I know it will come." A Kentucky Tragedy. Nichlosville, Ky., Jan. 18.

WANT TO CLOSE IT Senators Hope to Temporar ily Dispose of Postolliee Matter Todaj. THE PANAMA QUESTION Will Then Occupy the Attention of the Solons for the Remainder of the Week. Majority Will Insist On Taking Up the Treaty at the Earliest Moment. Washington, Jan. 18. The senate began the week by again taking up the resolutions having in view an in quiry into the conduct of the postoffice department. It is the general under standing that they will be roferred to the committee on postoflices after conl paratively brief debate. Senator Hale, who has general charge of the resolu tions, made a brief statement concern ing them and was followed by Senator Gorman. It is expected that Senator Spooner win add to his previous re marks on this subject, but his state ment may be postponed until later in the session. It is the hope of the Republican senators that the postoffice matter may be temporarily disposed of before the close of today's session, and in this event discussion of the Panama canal subject will be continued Tues-. day and probably during the remain der of the week. Very likely, however, before the close of the week the debate will be transferred from open senate to executive session, as it is the pur pose of the Republican majority to insist on taking up the canal treaty as soon as it shall be reported from the committee on foreign relations, which has had it under consideration for the past two weeks. The Republican members of the committee hope to report the treaty early in the present week. Discussion of the treaty is ex pected to last a month or more. "The committee on appropriations will take up some of the annual supply bills during the present week. As soon as these measures are on the cal endar their consideration will be press ed.

The army bill also will be ready for action by the house before the end of the week. The house is engaged today consid ering matters relating to the district of Colombia. Friday has been set apart for the passage of private pen sion bills. It is not unlikely that the Hepburn pure food bill will be called up Tuesday. This measure which was passed by the house during the last congress was reported from committee Saturday last and may be the subject of discussion Tuesday or Wednesday. Bills on the calendar and subject to be called up when opportunity arises include the following: To provide a delegate to congress from Porto Rico; to provide transportation from Porto Rico for the public school teachers of that island to .attend the summer schools of the United States; to con struct a revenue cutter for use in Al bemarle and Pamlico sounds; to reim burse a cable company for damages sustained during the war with Spain; to create a public park of the petrified forests of Arizona, and a bill to codify the criminal laws of the United States.

SUBTERRANEAN PLUNGE Party of Excursionists Have Thrilling Experience in Mammoth Cave. . Louisville, Ky., Jan. 18. Eighteen delegates to the convention of the Na tional League of Commission Mer chants were thrown Into the icy water of Echo river, which winds a tortuous course through Mammoth cave and were saved only by the coolness of the guide, John Nelson, and the heroic work of Charles A. Muehlbronner of Pittsburg, Pa. The roof of the cave over Echo river is arched and the space in the center, owing to an unac countable rise in the river, was only two and a half feet above the water. In order to secure the passage of the boat the men and women were forced to stoop over. At one place the boat swerved to one side, raking the heads of the persons in the boat next to the bank. These leaned farther forward to escape striking their heads. This lowered one ena of the boat, and the water began to flow in rapidly. The guide saw the danger and called to Mr. Muehlbronner to jump and take the chain. This he did, landing on a steep bank, which offered only a slight foothold. Lying down on his face, he held to the chain and pulled the boat toward the bank. The boat sank in eight feet of water, but further back where there was no landing the water is eighteen feet deep. By the light of a single lantern the party escaped by climbing over Mr. Muehlbroner's prostrate form and after waiting several hours for a boat, were brought in safety to daylight.
