Merritt, of Waterbury Watch Co. HEARST FOR PRESIDENT. The forces of William Randolph Hearst are systematically in vailing the different states of the Union. His -work does not stop with the simple matter of invasion; he is organizing his forces and will "put up" a vigor ous fight for the nomination. Mr. Hearst is a man of almost unlimited means and is not lacking in that other quality that aids in surmounting many of the difficulties of life. He has the "nerve" that belongs to lead erscertain kinds of leaders and when he exhibits this nerve it is ap palling to the Jeif ersonian kind of Democrats. But to the thoughtful Dem ocrat, this display of nerve by Mr. Hearst is not a new thing among Demo cratic leaders. It was developed in Mr. Bryan to an extraordinary degree and he still carries it about with him. There is one feature about Mr. Hearst's campaign that modest, patrio tic people are not in love with. That is seeking the nomination. In a re public, every man has a perfect right to aspire to the ... Presidency, but it is not good taste to run after it with hired lieutenants. Such candi dates will never stampede a convention and will never inspire confidence. The Democrats should look kindly on the candidacy of Mr. Hearst be cause every rich Democrat would no be willing to sacrifice his money when there is only a forlorn hope. The following from the Terre Haute Tribune will interest Indianians: "Justice Holmes of the supreme court, whose opinion so nearly tied the supreme court in the Northern Securities case, has handed down an other opinion which kills the Indiana state law of 1893, providing for the taxation of express, telegraph and certain other companies which do an interstate business. Justice Holmes has reversed the Indiana courts on the ground that the taxation of the American Express company, which was the appellant, was interference with interstate commerce. It is difficult to understand why interstate business should relieve a concern from obliga tions in a state in which it finds it p rofitable to make a permanent lodge ment to do business. However, there are nice points involved on which good lawyers disagree and this case has yet to be taken from the district to the federal courts' which may sustain the Indiana courts and the tax law." The county council gave some attention to the purchase of the Ma rion county cottage at the Lafayette Soldiers' home yesterday. The meeting of the council was called for a; special purpose, and, as a conse quence, other matters could not be considered. While the council did not look on the proposition with disfavor, the members did not give very much encouragement- regarding the purchase of the property in question. They thought it would be incurring an expense that the county cannot afford at the present time. The citizens of Richmond presented a strong case in the bridge matter before the county council yesterday. The citizens of the south side have the very best of argument and ought to have a bridge. This would de velop the southern part of west Richmond and open up a large territory south of the city that has been barred heretofore on account of its approach to the city. Inflammatory Rheumatism Cured. William Shaffere, a brakeman of Dennison, Ohio, was confined to his bed for several weeks with inflamma tory rheumatism. "I used many rem edies," he says. "Finally I sent to McCaw's drug store for a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm, at which time I was unable to use hand or foot, and in one week's time was able to go to work as happy as a clam."

Indianapolis, March'21. State Li brarian Henry who is preparing the library exhibit to be made by Indi ana at "the St. Louis exposition has arranged for an interesting frontis piece for the pamphlet which explains the display. The frontispiece shows the picture of Aindrew Carnegie and William McClure who were the two largest donors to libraries in the state These two men also represent the first and last givers to this cause in Indiana. William McClure lived in the first half of the last century and was a pioneer in the library cause. Mr. Carnegie's gifts to the libraries have made him known everywhere. William McClure was one of the leading spirits at New Harmony, the great Owen community. , In this re spect he belongs to Indiana although Mr. Carnegie cannot be claimed ex cept for his gifts to Indiana cities. The administrators made a fight to break the will but their contention was overruled and the money finally passed into proper hands and wa spent as he wished. Books bought with it went into 144 libraries over the state. ' Mr. Carnegie's gifts have helped in building thirtv-nine libraries in the state. , The beauty of his gifts has been that in almost every instance the institutions are public libraries wiiere the books are open to readers of every class. His total gifts to li braries in Indiana amount to about $875,000. J Mr. Henry thinks that in view of 'these facts it is only right that the first and last great benefactors of the library movement should4be honored in the way he has chosen. v LITERARY NAMES. (Judge.) "Yes," says the fond mamma, "I think we picked real pretty names for the twins. Pa got them out of a book. I always did like a name with a literary tone to it." "And what do you call the little darlings?" "Fauna and Flora. It's from a book in the library down town that tells about 'The Fauna and Flora of the Western Hemisphere.' 11 Job work promptly done at the Palladium. jiii , ) l l-i.i.ijl I II II I ) j ii i ii ii mj.)B ! i - .m.n..-i.-M m , in II -mm I KjfSStitliISS.
