Friday, ISTov. 23, 1906.

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.

they like the place.
As Edinburg Is in Johnson county
and the suburb is in this county the
officials of Edinburg have no jurisdic
tion over the residents of Eureka.
These residents do not have to pay
taxes to the town treasury and they
do not have to obey the ordinances of
the council. At the same time they
are residents of the town and have as
' msny privileges as the other residents.

A Great Comet Due In 1010.
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
