It seems in these latter days that every important transaction in the country conects with it in some way Reid. But Mr. Reid, while he is a man of immense capital and influ ence, he is. also a conservative man and does not jump headlong ' into things without first considering the distance he has to- jump. A few days ago the announcement was made that the syndicate of Indiana Stars was purchased by Mr. D. G. Reid and Mr. J, C. Schafer. This was published in all the leading pa pers jot, thft-CQuntry-.the .amount, of money paid for the plants named and the mortgage indebtedness . as sumed in the purchase. Now it transpires . that Mr. Reid had no more to do with the deal than did the president of San Domingo, Mr. Reid in a letter to the Pal ladium, said that- the first intima tion , he had that he had bought the gStars was when he read it in the f papers, lie said that he had not g-qontemplated such a purchase. Thus it will be seen that if the Stars fhave been sold Mr., Rcld was not Jthe purchaser. Nothing new has de lve oped since the last report, and it iis not yet known whether the deal with Mr. Schaffer was consummated fer.not, although the evening papers last evening had the following story: I "Indianapolis, Ind., October 26. John C. Schaffer met George F. 'Mc- Culloch here today. The Star Pub lishing company was incorporated willi; a capital stock of! $1,000,000, ine half of which is preferred. The bject, it is stated is to publish ewspapers, books and eriodicals. t is understood that Daniel Reid is Represented by $300,000. The di rectors elected are John C. Schaffer, jpavid E. Towne and J. C. Scott, all pf Cook count v, Illinois. Ernest fpross, of the Portland Oregonian, is io represent Mr. Schaffer as the head i the league. 2so other changes j re announced. The management ftates that " the papers are out of ffebt and have $100,000 in the bank." Tlie above telegram says Mr. Reid I interested to the extent ot $500, ?00, but we believe if he was he t'ould know something about it. 1ECRET PRACTICE Marriage licenses.

HI! :I..'f i; ANOTHER WELL IS LOCATED Yesterday morning the Chicago Tribune 'published an eloquent de fense of President Roosevelt's foreign policy contributed by the Hon. John Barrett, .United States Minister to Panama, one of the veteran mem bers of the American diploma tic service. Mr. Barrett's letter in part follows: - The Democratic party is making a most serious blunder in criticis ing President Roosevelt's foreign policy. The contention of the Demo cratic press and campaign speakers on this subject cannot stand the light of facts. They may take advantage of the general lack of acquaintance throughout the United States with conditions abroad, but when ihee me known and understood there can result nothing but praise and admira- CAMBRIDGE CITY OIL COM- tion for the President's policy.
