looking after his political fences.
Mr. Landis will be a candidate be
fore the Republican convention that
meets in Indianapolis April 26 and
27, for governor of Indiana. Mr. Han
ley paid the Palladium a pleasant
call this morning, and, when asked
what he had to say to the dear peo
ple, he said:
'Oh, I don't know tliat I have any
thing special to say, only that the
nominee of the convention will be the
governor of Indiana!"
"And what chances have you, Mr
Hanley, for that honor?" queried the
"Well," said he, "the people of
the state will make the nomination,
and the people are with me in this
contest. Twelve counties hae al
ready inshueted for me, besides num
erous townships in many other coun
ties. These counties are in almost
every section of the state, and their
action is a fair index to the feeling
over the entire state. In addition to
the counties that have instructed for
me there are many other counties that
will give solid support. My district,
the tenth, with 132 delegates, are with
me. My friends everywhere are earn
est, loyal and active, and I am ab
solutely confident of the result. In
dications point to a great convention,
representative of the best party in
the best state of the Union."

ONE OF EATON'S BEST KNOWN
MEN SERIOUSLY ILL.
LITTLE HOPE OF
Stricken Suddenly Tuesday Night
His Leg Dead and Amputation
Would be Disastrous.
(Special to Palladium.)
Eaton, ., March 31. The friends
of Mr. J. J.. Gibbins were pained and
greatly stir prised to learn this morn
ing that he was threatened with a
malady which would cost him the loss
of a limb, and probably his life.
Tuesday night about 10 o'clock
he was awakened out of a sleep with
a severe pain in the calf of his left
leg, which to increased in intensity
that Dr. Ryder was summoned. When
he arrived he found the circulation
stopped in the lower part of the leg,
and the foot practically dead. He at
once diagnosed the case as that of a
clot formation in the artery, caused
from the kidney and heart complica
tions. Dr. Shaw was called in con
sultation and the two physicians in
formed the stricken family to pre
pare for the worst.
Wednesday morning found the leg
in an advanced stage of purification,
gangreen having set in, and. spread
over the entire -leg, below the knee
An operation was quickly decided
i-pon as the only means of saving his
life, and Dr. Weist, of Richmond, was
summoned. He arrived at 1:40, and,
after consultation, and in view of the
condition of the patient, it was decid
ed to postpone the operation until to
day. We are informed by the phy
sician that the case is practically
apeless, aud Mr.Gibbins' life is hang
ing by a dender thread.
The Palladium asked Dr. Weist
itbout Mr. Gibbins' condition, and he
said there was little hope, and the
leg was not amputated.

Has Pretentions of One Day Amount
ing to Something.
The New Castle Courier, for some
time past, has been poking fun at
Richmond's apparent lethargy in the
matter of securing factories, rail
roads, etc. It seems to take a de
light in that sort of thing.
They had a meeting up there Tues
day night for the purpose of securing
additional factories, principally the
Chicago Steel Manufacturing com
pany. A subscription paper was
started to get enough money to put
up a building for the factory. That's
all on paper.
In the occount of the, meeting the
Courier says: - "Come, diet's get to
gether, on this splendid proposition
and give,, Richmond and ""06 sur
rounding towns 'another sample of bur
thirft and enterprise."
The Palladium would like to say to
our dear friend, the Courier, that
New Cas tie, " with all her bombast
about new factories, would not make
a respectable suburb for Richmond.
The whole place would fit in the elk's
pen at Glen Miller. Richmond is
not of hushroom growth. She has
stood the test of years, has grown
gradually and surely and safely, and
there is rrtibble about her credit 1
When New Castle is able to lift her
head above water Richmond will talk
business with her.
