Reid Has Purchased the Star League. It seems to be certain that the In dianapolis Morning Star, with the Terre Haute Star and the Muncie Star, has been sold by George F. Mc Culloch to John C. Shafer, of Chi cago; Daniel O. Reid, the Richmond, millionaire, and perhaps oth ers. Mr. Shafer is the owner of the Chicago Pest, and was about fifteen years ago president of the Indiana polis Street Railway company. A wide-spread rumor that the. sale has been made is generally credited and has been traced to reasonably reli able sources, though none of the prin cipals in the deal can be reached. Mr. McCuIloch is on his way to the East, and his associates in this city will not talk of the matter in his absence. Mr. Shafer could not be reached in Chicago today and Mr. Reid is in New York. The understanding is that the Indi anapolis Star will continue publica tion, though as a Republican organ. In response to a demand from the old Journal readers the name of the Journal will be made more prominent The report is that the change will take place next Friday or at least within a few days.
