Indianapolis The "Fighting Five" are now sec ond, with Muncie thirty points in the lead for first. PAPERlM BY JAMES Til DDSEN (Continued from 1st page.) Panhandle lines. The engine, the baggage car, and passenger coach, were all built together. It attended to the local business between Colum bus and Union City for many years, and at last was sent west where it died a natural death. It was a great success in the old days when local traffic was not heavy. So far as known only two of these trains were built. The other one was known as the "Red Bird" because of its scar let coating that even covered the en gine. The train was capable of work ing up to about thirty miles an hour if the wind was in its favor, and it jolted and swayed as much as one of the modern mogul engines. James Dugan, known to many Indiana rail road men as the engineer and 'John Cassell, who is now running on the Indianapolis division of the Panhan dle, was the fireman. Samuel Ross the veteran car tracer of the Penn sylvania who was retired on a pen sion several years ago, was the con ductor, and Tom Humphreys who has an engine on the Hocking Valley was the baggageman. The train was built by William D. Rommans, mas ter mechanic of the old Columbus, Piqua & Indiana. It was specially designed for a Minnesota railroad that had more mileage than villages to serve. Placed by the side of one of the big twentieth century mogul engines the entire train would not emasure its length nor the height of its stack. It Never Disappoints. J. Williams, proprietor of the F.

Supt. and Mrs. Mott returned a feAv days ago from the National Edu cational Association at Atlanta, Ga. A Palladium reporter called on Mr; Mott to get his impression of educa tional progress in the sunny south and other observations made at the meeting. Every five or six years inaugurates some new phase or fad in education and the reporter was anxious to hear the latest. The two principal topics discussed were (1) Technical Education and the care of the children of the people who Avork in factory and mine. It was very generally agreed that a technical education is the one for. the present age.. This is the kind of edu cation that prepares the young man and -young woman to become bread winners. Another topic of general interest hroughout the -country and of spec ial interest in the south is, what can be done to discourage, in fact to abol ish, child labor in factories and mines. This custom obtains in the south to an alarming degree and is not only injurious to the physical de velopment of the child, but prevents, altogether, the mental development. The professor regards the meeting as a success and was gratified at the large attendance from Indiana. While in Atlanta, Mr. Mott visited the Boys' Technical school in that city and noted the splendid equip ment and the great interest of the teachers and pupils in this school. On their return trip, they stopped a short time at Chattanooga and vis ited Lookout Mountain. Mr. Mott has been the Indiana director of the National Association for many j-ears and has always looked well to the comfort and conveniences of the In- j diana delegation at these meetings.

LASTED FOR TWO HOURS Russia Driven to Cove.- After Torpe do Boat Is Sunk, a Cruisor Put In Sinking Condition, A Second Cruiser Badly Damaged--Japanese Vessels Withdraw in Good Order. London, March 1. A dispatch to tha Daily Telegraph from Yin Kow dated Feb. 29, says: "Fifteen Japanese war ships furiously bombarded Port Arthur from 10 until 12 o'clock this morning. The Russian cruisers Novik, Askold and Bayan, accompanied by four tor pedo boats, steamed out to meet the attack. They were, however, forced to retire. The Askold was in a sinking condition. The Novik was badly dam aged and a torpedo boat was sunk. The Russian battleship Retvizan was again damaged. As usual the Japanese did not re main long enough off the harbor to enable the gunners at the forts to get their range. Again, also the same three cruisers, the Bayan, the Askold and the Novik, came out to meet the attack, and this suggests that either they were the only effective ship's there or that the larger battleships were unable to get out. BLOCKADE RUMORED St. Petersburg Hears That-Vladivos-tock Is Tied Up. St. Petersburg, March 1. Direct confirmation of the" report from Hak odate that Vladivostock is blockaded by the Japanese vessels cannot be obtained here, but It is considered not improbable. During the Japanese landing operations in Korea the Rus sian warships to the north were a con stant menace and blockading them would be the most effective means of securing non-interference. Further more, it is worthy of note that for more than a week no word has been allowed to come from Vladivostock and this in itself seems strong pre sumptive evidence that important events are transpiring. The report from Liao Yang, Manchu ria, that the Japanese fleet has re ceived orders to attack and capture Port Arthur on March 1st at all costs, coupled with the comparison of Port Arthur and Sevastopol made by the Novoe Vremya, has created a profound impression, and has added to the be lief that the Japanese possibly intend to commence land and sea operations against Port Arthur- sooner "than was anticipated. Korea Gives to Red Cross. Tokio, March 1.- The Korean court has donated $100,000 to the Red Cross hospitals. The ministers of the United States and Great Britain, at Seoul, are favor ably inclined to the Japanese Korean protocol. The Tokio government has instruct ed the local authorities to extend spe cial protection and facilities to the Russian consul, at Fusan, Korea, who reached Moji, Japan last night and proceeded thence for Nagasaki, whence he will sail for home. Cigarettes Donated. Moscow, March 1. The nobles club here has yoted $50,000 for the navy fund and $25,000 for the Red Cross society. A tobacconist named Bostanioglo, has given 2,000,000 cigar ettes, and a sugar refiner, H. Teresch henke, has donated a carload of sugar for the Rer Cross society. The Grand Duchess Serge is sending a field church to the front for use of the army. Saint's Aid Invoked. Nijni, Novgorod, Russia, March 1. Reports from Saroff, province of Tarn boff, say that pilgrims from various parts of Russia are arriving there to solicit the intervention of St. Seraphim In behalf of their relatives. St. Sera phim was canonized by the czar last summer on account of his fame as a miracle worker. To Promote Shipping. Washington, March 1. Senator Pat terson introduced a bill yesterday pro viding that a rebate of 5 per cent shall be made on all articles imported Into the United States from foreign coun tries In vessels of the United States where the specific and ad valorem du ties amount to less than 25 per cent of the value of the articles, and a rebate of 10 per cent where such duties amount to more than 25 per cent of the value. To increase the number of American registered vessels, the bill provides that for three years foreign vessels may be admitted to American register on the payment of tonnage tax ranging from $1 to $7 per gross ton nage and measurement. Twelve Burn to Death. Roherval, Quebec, March 1. Twelve lives were lost in a frn which de stroyed the home of Thomas Guay, at St. Felician. In the home at the time were the eight small children of Thom as Guay, Mrs. Phillip Gagnon and her three small children. Both Gagnon and Guay, the fathers, were absent working in the woods. SHARP PASSAGE Congressmen Exchange Rather Point? ed Jibes. V Washington, March 1. During Ion slderation of the District of Cqnimbla appropriation bill In the house yes terday, Mr. Scott of Kansas made the declaration that a negro had dined at the White House with President Cleve land duraing the latter's first adminis tration. The statement was prompted by a reference by Mr. Gilbert (Ky.) to the dining of Booker Washington et the White House. When the name was demanded Mr. Scott said. It waa C. H. J. Taylor, who was appointed by President Cleveland as recorder cf deeds for the District of Columbia. Mr. Gilbert observed that he , and others never had heard of the incf dent, but the Democrats were not "par ticularly claiming" Mr. Cleveland, and Mr. Cochran (Mo.) said it was but cumulative evidence that "there is no better Republican in the country than Grover Cleveland." Mr. . Scott in contrasting Booker Washington with Taylor, said the for mer was a man of recognized ability, while he declared there was nothing to commend the latter. A discussion of tne question of reci procity by Mr. Dalzell (Pa.) and Mr. Williams, the minority leader, con sumed the greater portion of the day. Another feature of the day was the declaration by Mr. Lovering (Mass.) , that while the Republican party was talking about "standing pat," thou sands or dollars were being lost to manufactures and that "our boasted prosperity Is fast coming to an end" because of the failure of the party to enlarge the draw-back system and give the new markets which he declared were now demanded. Mr. Lovering was loudly applauded on the minority side when he took issue with his party. j Philippine Finances. Washington, March 1. In compli ance with an act of congress, the bu reau of insular affairs of the war de partment has just completed a balance sheet showing the receipts and expen ditures of the Philippine government for the period beginning with the American occupation on Aug. 13, 1S98, to the close of the fiscal year 1902. ,The fidelity with which these monies were handled is shown by the fact that there is an absolute accountabili ty of all insular funds during the four years referred to, and the itemized ex penditures and other credit balance the receipts or .debits to the one-half cent. Representative Cooper, of Wiscon sin, introduced a bill today amending in several important ways the act pro viding a civil form of government for the Philippines. The bill was pre pared by Secretary Taft. Arranging for Convention. Washington, March 1. Preliminary action toward the preparation of the coliseum building in Chicago for the meeting of the National Republican convention in June, was taken yester day when acting Chairman Payne, Senator Scott, Secretary Dover and Sergeant-at-Arms Stone, of the Nation al Republican committee on arrange ments, approved the architect's plan for seating the delegates in the vast hall.
