FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1906. WITH THE EDITORS. The Crown Point Register in this week's issue jumps onto the Kentland Enterprise with both f?et when the latter proceeds to speak of I,n?;e coun ty affairs in a manner that shows mis information. The neighboring' county paper says: A special term of eo'irt was convened In Lake county yesterday to relieve the prea.-mre of criminal cases. There are more than forty prisoners in the coun ty jail awaiting1 trial and no more prisoners can be received until the present number is weeded out. Lake county has a robbery every night, a murder for breakfast, a hold-up for dinner, and a variety act in crime for supper. And Lake county Is in Indiana and our nearest neighbor on the north. Kentland Enterprise. Back up! Lake county is not as bad you try to mako out. The present era of industrial progress has brought In a few undeeirble characters, who Imagine they had a free license to com mit murder any time they choose after no cold-blooded murderer escaped Ret ting1 his just deserts, through Governor Hanlys intervention, but the results of the Lnpidat trial shown that Justice still reigns supreme, and unless Gov ernor Hanly "butts in" again, the crim inals populations will bo decreased in this county. Crown Point Itegrlster. For Public Depository. The people of Indiana can fully rely tipon the passage of a public depository law fcy the Indiana legislature at the coming session. The governor, all of the state officials. Chairman Goodrich, of the republican committee, and other prominent party men are thoroughly committed to the measure, anil so is every republican legislator as far as has been ascertained. At the meeting of the Indiana Bankers' association in Indianapolis this week the matter was carefully canvassed and the depository plank in the republican state plat form was heartily approved. Portland Commercial Review. I'nole Sam's Lur Arm. The Detroit Journal, discussing Sen ator Reveridge's preposition to have the national government intervene in be half of child labor, says: An excuse is furnished for some such law as that Senator Beveridge pro poses, solely because a few of the in dividual etates decline to recognize the seriousness of the situation he will at tempt to meet. The places in the United States where the evil of child labor still remains an evil of alarming and even of monstrous proportions are in the cotton mills of the southern Etates, where children scarcely out of Infancy are accustomed to be omoloved. In the minim regions of some states children ara also employed at an age so tender as to interfere with their adult ""development. Those unprogress ivo southern states which have been vainly importuned to pass legislation for the protection of their children, and those mining states in which the influence of mining corporations avails to prevent the enforcement of child labor laws would lind themselves pow erless longer to resist the collective public sentiment of the entire country when enforced through the Federal device Mr. Beveridge suggests. I " An Idol Lies Sniuhed. A stranger thing has happened than was ever dreamt of in our philosophy. A great tenor the very gr-r-r-eat Enrico Caruso has been arrested for too much gallantry to a lady. Ordi narily a tenor might, with truth, if not with modesty, "tell strange tales how honorable ladles sought my love, -which I, denying, they fell sick and died." But here is a tenor not only charged with having tried to force lover-like attentions upon a fair un known, but with having made the front of the monkey house In Central rpnrk the scene of his attempted In trigue, Any but an entirely unelastic Imag ination might picture a famous tenor falling into the error of misdirected traHuntry at some Fompeiian feast la a basement restaurant where imitation palms and imported wines combine to make a tropic atmosphere which plays tricks with the judgment, but that a personage like Caruso should be ap prehended for making Jove to a stranger in a public park, in garish daylight and in the presence of hoi polloi, is too melancholy for dry-eyed reflection. Louisville Courier-Journal. Between Trains At a card party in Rensselaer cently one on the lady players marked that the reason they di play cards in the Ark was from fact that Noah sat on the deck. re-re-In't the The story is told of a son of a Baptist minister who made an attempt to turn four kittt ns into Baptists by sousing them one by one into a pail of water, refuting the service as best he could remember it. But the fourth did not take kindly to the water and after sev eral vain attempts to g-t the rat's head under wuter the lad exclaimed: "Well, darn you, be a Methodist if you want to." ' You have only an hour longer live," said the physician, solemnly the wealthy miser on his deathbed, there anything you wish attended to to "Is to before you pass away?

LARGE RANCHES IN MEXICO. Foreigners as Well as Natives Have Immense Holdings. Ranches in Mexico are of no mean size. Ex-Gov. Terrazas of Chihuahua has 17.000,000 acres. The Zuloaga family Is said to hold 5,000.000. Prop erties of 1,000,000 and 2,000.000 acres are not uncommon. Among the Amer icans who have large ranches may be mentioned Fleming & Ross, the River side Cattle company, with 2,000,000 acres and a fine herd of Herefords; Phoebe Hearst, of California, who has a magnificent place west of Minaca; the Millers and three Mormon col onies. Gordon, Ironsides & Ferriss. a Canadian company, have 1,000,000 acres; Lord Beresford. a relative of the admiral, has a large ranch where he raises fine horses ; another English man, named Irmstead, owns a large property. Smaller places of from 40. 000 acres upward are numerous. The price of land now runs from 50 to 75 cents gold per acre, with a strong tendency to rise. Modern Mexico. Japanese Workmen Tagged.

S :e day a trlfl-i firmer opper & St.: Paul. Thc- tocks started for Reading, early prices, hoW-.-Ver, were about the highest of the ses.sion. The volume of trade seems to have subsided somewhat today. The trad-- as a rule was more or less of a professional character, although there was some good selling discerned in Reading on tile advance, it makes the rumor all the more emphatic that the Friek interests are selling some of their holdings. It may be only to stop any wild bullish demonstration, and o:i the- other hand may be profit taking for a healthy reaction. St. Paul was also in demand and on a weaker plane. The selling seemed to be cf a better class than the buying. The market has the appearance of the short Recount well eliminated and does tif.it respond to any buying as it did during tile past few days. The higher priced rails were neglected in a meas ure today and speculation seemed to e-ntr-r in low priced railroad shares and industrials. Missouri, Kansas & Texas, both common and preferred, were traded in largely at higher quo tations than have prevailed for many months. The buying was ascribed to the Hill interests who have become very influential in these securities. It is hinted in the street tuat this lnter .t is very desirous of gaining entire control of the property. Corn products, common and preferred of the lower priced industrial shares were active and higher. Each issue scored an advance of about two points. Tins is the first time since the reor ganization of the company that any activity has been displayed in these shares. Trade conditions are reported better; that is assigned for the strength in the shares. The market closed with slight declines, perceptible throughout the list, particularly in the higher priced railroad shares. STOCK MARKET Descpt.

The Great Northern Melon is cut and it looks like a gift of $9,200 for each one hundred shares of stock, or if you hold it this year you will get 3 1-2 per cent divi dend and about six per cent on the average for the next eleven years. It Is a mighty good model for Reading to follow on its coalation distribution, and for the Southern and Union Pa eihe on their holding of St. Paul. Front taking on a large scale in Reading, Union Pacific and Southern Pacific what what put the market down. All the news was good, even on copper, which has been held down all the time. St. raul is the best purchase on the list; all kinds of rash talk of a hitch is being indulged in; everybody who has the stock or had it has sold. Now who is taking it all? Only one party Harriman. Burlington wants all the Missouri Kansas & Texas they can get to give them a cheap freight road to the Gulf instead of going to Liverpool by the way of New York. Money was comparatively easy and so far it looks like about $2,500,000 increase in the surplus. Chicago in two weeks sent about $15,000,000 to New Y'ork and will stop now for 1 while. The Bank of England increas ed its percentage of reserve and the Bank of France is in a more liberal mood. London in the next two weeks will reduce the bank rate to 5 r,er cent. Union Pacific was bought by C. B. McDonald. As one party said, "and well he might; when this plunger was in Chicago at the beginning of this week he was short of it and tried to get up a following on the short side, instead of which he found the west hungry to buy stocks and only wait ing for an invitation to jump in and make a boom. He hustled back to New Tor kon the Twentieth Century and covered his shorts at once." One bright genius gives the follow ing view of the etock market: "The market rallied because it went down, what it will do not is a guess, but Judging from the tape, it ought to go higher until after Thanksgiving day anyhow; buy stocks on reactions until the middle of December, and then stay long until the end of Jan uary; ouy Lnion. tsoutnern Pacific. Northern Pacific, Baltimore &. Ohio, Steel, from 81." stuff Pennsylvania and soil Brooklyn 81 to 78, or buy it from 7S to The above is a sample of the that is dished up daily. Missouri, Kansas & Texas is being bought for Hill by some of the best houses, Clarke. Dodge & Co., and Sain, and they are getting their friends into it. The- recent court de cision put about $6,000,000 of the right of way land grant back into the treasury of the company, and they have a case in court now on the same lines. If it is rendered in favor of the road, it will amount to about $10.- 1 1 0 0 , 0 0 0 o n e o f stocks. In the c! any leap c-viiit the stuck is st of the low priced Steel common although it sold off was very well bought and it now looks like a great deal higher price for it. Sixty-live is the tigure named by one of Morgan's partners before March next. The way the market took the attack en the Standard Oil company makes tile sttel people feel secure in their position and the earnings are es timated at over $160,000,000 per year, the largest in its history. Locomotive common and steel springs are being tipped for a big raise on a rumor of consolidation, Locomotive to go in at 123 and Steel Springs at 90, both companies are making a great deal of money, about four times the amount they are paying in dividends and it would only take a little effort to put cither or both of them ten points higher. Baltimore Ac Ohio is one of the stocks that so far has not gone up at all. It is paying 6 per cent and earning 15 per cent and was one of the special fa vorites of the late Marshal Field. He was carrying over 50.000 shares of it when he died. 'This is all taken care of now and this stock is in shape to sell up to 135 or 140 and there is a new pool just started to bull it. The bond houses all look for easier money and tney say in uuuiuuu co this they have commenced to again sell 1 few monds. Delaware & Hudson will go on a 10 . . C . . 1 -, per cent dividend oasis lor a cei cani ty and this will put stock up to $250 at least, but who has the siock: mere is none on the street. The investors have it all. Union Pacific's annual report will be out on the 27th. It will show some thing liko 24 per cent earned on the stock. Gates sold St. Paul and it looked like long stock coming out. The shorts need it as there is little float ing stock. Gates was a large seller of Union Pacific that was bought on the recent break to 1S7. but Sweet & Co. took it all. Atlantic Coast line makes more out of its holdings of Louisville & Nash villa than it does out of running its own road. Quite a demand developed in the loan crowd for stocks again showing an increase 111 me stiorc interest, chop per metal was bid up on the metal xchange to 22 cents per pound. United States steel company's cash date holdings in Banks are at this $85,000,000. Thirty-two railroads for second week in November show an increase of 11 Vz per cent over last year. Flower & Co. as up to 94. bought all the People's Strong, Sturgis & Co were heavy buyers of St. Paul. Everybody is try ing to bull Reading, but it looks as if Frick and "VVasserman were selling.
