THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES Friday, ISTov. 23, 1906. Telegraph News by Direct Wire from All Over Indiana Indiana poll,. Nov. 23- Tbe supreme court holds that the Moore law, pro viding for "blanket remonstrances" against granting saloon licenses to any and all applicants in a township or ward is valid. The court als holds that such a remonstrance may be signed by an attorney holding sepa rate powers of attorney from each of the voters he represents, which have been sent to him by letter or postal card; that after the remonstrance has once taken effect voters cannot after ward withdraw their names to favor an applicant for license at a future term, and that a sufficient remon strance, once filed, cuts off all right of the commissioners to issue a license to anybody for two years. t Denials Can Also 15 Made. But it decides that each applicant in turn may deny that the remonstrance bears the requisite number of names, or that it was really signed by the persons whose names it bears or by their attorney, or that such persons are legal voters or a majority of the legal voters of the township or ward. It holds that each applicant is entitled to his "day in court" to controvert the filing of a legal remonstrance, but if the fact that a legal remonstrance was duly filed Is shown, he cannot ob tain a license.

The most famous of all comets, though not the largest and most brill iant, will again be visible in 1910. This is Halley's comet, so called from its identification by the great astronomer who was the friend of Sir Isaac Newton. Halley's investigation of astronomical records led him to assert that the comet which he had observed In 16S2 had appeared in 1531 and 1607, and to predict its reappearance in 1759. The fulfillment of his prophecy excited the most intense scientific interest and es tablished beyond doubt the periodicity of comets and their movement in orbits determined by the law of gravitation Its last appearance was in 1S35, Its period varying between seventy-five and seventy-six years on account of the perturbing attractions of Jupiter and Saturn in certain parts of Its orbit. It was by that time possible to calcu late its movements with so much greater accuracy than before that it made its perihelion passage within four days of the predicted date. It w;s not then a very grand object to the naked eye, but the light of its nu cleus surpassed that of second-magnitude stars, and was comparable with that of some reddish stars of the first magnitude, such as Aidebaran and An tares. Its tail, while the comet was approacning ine sun anainea to a length of twenty degrees. Leslie's Weekly. Reform In Tennessee.
