The, selection of Mr. Reid, of South
Bend, as warden of the state prison at
Michigan City is highly gratifying to
the republicans of the thirteenth) dis
trict and of northern Indiana. It
will be gratifying to right-minded
democrats as well, for his official du

formed. People who are determined to be

will of course be little disturbed by
the confessions of Mrs. Piper, the
greatest medium of all, but most folks
will conclude that the episode proves
flatly that the unknowable, is still un
known, just as it ever will -be, world

Mr. FJske "Warren, the American

its executive committee. The oath
of allegiance is good medicine for men
of his kind.
A clear-headed Christian writer
. draws the following picture of selfish
ness: "Selfishness is the most utter
destitution of a human being. It can
bring nothing to his relief; It adds
soreness to his sorrows; it sharpens his
pains; it aggravates all the losses he is
liable to endure; and when goaded to
extremes, it often turns destmver and
strikes its last blows on himself."
The selfish man is always his own
worst enemy. He is sure to cheat
himself when intending to serve him

The men most prominently identi
fied with the Democrat as owners have
been Thomas, Piatt and Daniel McDon
ald, D. E. YanYalkenburgh, M. W.
Downey and A. C. Thompson. Of these
Piatt is the only one who did not
get a public office, all the rest having
been in office while owning the paper.
They, with a few others who were of
ficers, deputies or mortgages of the
Democrat, were the leaders who
organized and , maintained the ring
which has never lost its cohesive pow
er to this day. Dan is the only one
of the originals left,the others having
died or been cast out, and he holds on 1
to the graft with the unrelaxing grip
of a bloodsucker. He has' to. He
has nothing else left. The hundred
thoussjid dollars he had out of the
public funds, and which he might
easily have saved and doubled had he
been a man of ordinary business abil
ty, has all bsen dissipated. The
owners of the Republican had to and
pid live out of the legitimate proceeds
of - their business, ne might have
done the same and kept his salaries
and perquisites, but he could not do
that or even keep his plant up to the
times or improve his paper as other
papers are improved. In his declin
ing years he is largely cut off from his
public revenue but to still taxes his
party by requiring them to pay him
two dollars for a paper that is not so
good as is sold in surrounding counties
for half that price. He is the man
who dares to talk and to lie about the
dttts of. others! Poorhouses and
penitentiaries are built for such as
he.

The factories might burn, fail or move
away, as other Plymouth factories
have done; the farmers will steadily
increase in numbers and in wealth.

AN INFAMOUS TRIAL
In the second trial of Caleb Powers
for the murder of "William Goebel the
state has completed its side of the
case and rested. Every item of evi
dence presented by the prosecution
falls within one of these three classes:
(1) hearsay; (2) circumstantial, of a
remote character; (3) testimony of
witnesses against whom at least rea
sonably credible charges of perjury
rest. This trial has not been one
whit more fair than the former,
though possibly no worse. Briefly re
called, the following facts appear be
yond dispute.
Powers was forced into this trial
with unnecessary and unusual haste,
though but six out of more than two
hundred of his witnesses had been
heard from. Judge Cantrill denied a
motion for a change of venue in spite
of the widespread and notorious
charges of unfairness in the former
trial, though any right-minded judge
would have welcomed the opportunity
to secure release from a most unpleas
ant duty or would have assigned the
case to another judge without a
request. The jury as finally made up
was composed of twelve Goebel demo
crats, and that in a county almost
equally divided between the two
parties and in which the democrats
are equally divided between the two
factions. Notwithstanding the very
palpable proof that the jury was
packed, Judge Cantrill overruled a
challenge and ordered the witnesses to
be sworn. The judge's rulings in the
trial have been uniformly against
Powers and every intendment has
been taken against him, while no
courtesy has been accorded him or his
counsel. Cantrill is a candidate for
the United States senate and the only
ground of his claim for that honorable
office is that he has earned it by his
dishonorable conduct in these trials.
The feeling against him is so intense
among the people that he is fearful of
losing his life and dares not trust his
own partisans, but has all onlookers
in his court searched for weapons,
nis only way to secure the favor and
the votes of the Goebelites who con
trol the legislature is to stand by them
and the position they have taken
against Powers and other accused re
publicans so he is compelled to be
biased.
With these facts and conditions
plainly in view Governor Durbin
would be violating the most common
impulses of humanity were he to send
Taylor into that sinkhole of injustice
to be tried for his life by a partisan
Judge, a packed jury and perjured wit
nesses for political ends. No law
requires such a sacrifice.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert McKinnle

at Princeton, Iowa. Mrs. McKInnie
was seated at the dinner-table, death
having been caused by a bullet in the
stomach. Mr. McKInnie was found
dead in bed, but without any visible
wounds and a rifle lay on the floor.
It is supposed that McKinnie killed
his wife with the rifle and then took
poison. McKinnie had been -despondent
recently and had threatened his
life. Each was 80 years old, and they
have been residents of Princeton for
twenty years. Ethel Broadbeck, of
South Bend, a niece of the dead couple,
was visiting friends in Plymouth and
went at once to the scene of the
tragedy.

STORY OF A GRAFT
How Dan McDonald Got
Kept The Democrat.
and
fl Filtu-uear Hold on the Public Treasury
and Its Bloating Effect on the Man Who
tlas fllwaus Lived as a Public Gharge.
The arrogance of Daniel McDonald
in assuming superior airs among news
paper men In this county and his ly
ing claim of 25 years of continuous
editorial control of the Democrat lend
some degree of interest to the history
of that sheet and of his connection
herewith.
The Plymouth Weekly Democrat,
voi. ir 20. 1, made its appearance
Jan. 26t 1860, with A. C. Thompson
as editor and publisher. The Repub
lican and its immediate predecessors
had been in existence without missiner
an issue or decreasing in size since
June, 1851. A paper known as the
Marshall County Democrat was es
tablished by Thomas McDonald and
H. B. Dickson in November, 1855,
and died in 18o9 from pressure of
debt- Dickson sold it to McDonald
early in its first year; McDonald leased
it to A. C. Thompson and Piatt Mc
Donald Nov. 13, 1856; Dan McDonald
was taken in as reporter early in 1857;
the whole establishment was presented
to Piatt and Dan Nov. 12, 1857, M.
A. O. Packard was installed as editor
and the paper was reduced in size to
save expense; June 3, 1858, it became
necessary to cut expenses still deeper
and the luxury of an editor was dis
pensed with; Aug. 11, 1859, McDon
aid & Bro., being unable to make
the thhing go, unloaded it upon Wm.
j Burns and December 1, of the same
year, the failure was complete and the
paper ceaed publication. The Re
publican was then well-established
under tbj management of I. Matting-
ly and was sailing free.
Alec. Thompson, as we have said,
established tne Weekly Democrat
in January, 1860. In April of the
following year, Thomas and Piatt Mc
Donald acquired the paper, Thomas,
tne ratner or Piatt ana Dan, being a
substantial man and having some
means, but they were glad to sell it in
July, 1862, to I). E. Van Valkenburgh,
who gave it some life by employing
John G. Osborne as editor until the
succeeding November. In October,
1863, Mr. Osborne took the paper and
plant into his own possession and ran
it until one S. L. Harvey came along
and bought it in Mav, 1865, and Har
vey controlled it until October 1867,
when he sold out to John McDonald,
a brother of Dan. John was com
pelled to close out in July, 1868, and
was relieved by a syndicate composed
of M. W. Downey, A. C. Thompson
and 1). E. Van Valkenburgh. While
they owned it Piatt bought an inter
est but sold it again, and in October,
1873, William Geddes was taken into
partnership with Van Valkenburgh
and the others nominally dropped out'
Piatt tried it again in July, 1874, Mr,
-w f 1 if... 1. t .
van vaiEenouisrn retiring in nis
favor, ani in the following May Mr.
Geddes was glad to get a sahried po
sition elsewhere and he likewise re
tired, leaving the entire burden upon
Piatt for a period of three months.
Now comes Dan to the. rescue. He
had never been connected with the
Plymouth Weekly Democrat and since
August, 1859, had been connected
with no paper, a period of 14 years,
lie had learned the secret of living at
the public expense and had been care
fully working up the greatest graft
that any Marshall county man ever
had. Piatt had the old plant, worn
out and antiquated, and Dan had
saved some money or knew how to get
some, so, Aug 1, 1875, Daniel McDon
ald assumed a half interest with Piatt,
a new press, engine and fixtures were
put in and the Democrat entered upon
a new era. No Improvement has ever
been made since except a couple of
changes in the power used; the press,
now 26 years oldj is still there and the
paper is the same. In October, 1877,
Piatt had had enough and sacrificed
his interest to. get away, leaving Dan
iel the sole proprietor and editor.
Having had a salary from the pub
lic taxes continuously, or nearly so,
since his "eighteenth . year; leaving
all of the county and town advertising
and most of the legal advertising hav
ing the contracts for all the town and
county printing and stationery at
more than ten times the .present cost,
rnd having the same opportunities
lor job printing, advertising and sub
scription that the Republican had, it
would seem that Daniel had a good
thing in the . Democrat and' might
have held it. He was able to hold it
about 14 months and January 1, 1879,
it was taken off his hands by Henry
A. Peed and he went back to sit in
the office of county clerk, which of
fice he held eight years, retiring to
ward the end of 1879. Mr. Peed could
not hold the paper, either, and it fell
back upon Dan in 1881. The claim
lately set up by Daniel that he has
been in the editorial harness' contin
uously for a quarter of a century lacks
at least five years . of being truthful,
and his other claim of forty years' ex
perience as an editor is much
farther from the truth. He was a re
porter and typesetter for two years,
in 1857-8, and was not with the paper
again until 1875, after which t.'me he
was without any proprietory interest
for at least two years.
Neither has Daniel's editorial will
been the final law of the sanctum dur
ing all the time that he has been in
nominal control. Until within a very
recent time, and even yet so far as
we know, the place has in one way or
another been plastered with mort
gages, and the mortgagees have had
very much influence in the policy of
the Democrat, particularly in politics.
One of the most notable cases of that
character occurred in the campaign of
1876. 'Horace Corbin, to whom Mc
Donald was heavily obligated person
ally, was the regular democratic can
didate for judge and A. C. Capron was
running on an independent ticket.
Daniel, the sanctified censor who hates
a bolter, bolted the regular ticket and
supported Capron. A. L. Wheeler
held the mortgage then and Daniel
was his slave. Other incidents are
readily recalled but space forbids their
mention.
Enough has been stated to puncture
some of Daniel McDonald's mildest
pretensions. There are many editors
in this state who have been longer in
the service than he has, but none has
had fifty years of continuous support
from the public treasury, as he has
had, and few can still tax the mem
bers of their party by imposing a two
dollar price for a one-dollar paper, as
he does.
Had he been a business man of ordi
nary ability he would now be wealthy,
for in the past 25 years he has drawn
from the public funds nearly a hun
dred thousand dollars and has had the
legitimate proceeds of his business be
sides; the Republican lived all that
time on its legitimate business alone.
TnE Tribune starts off as the largest
home-print paper in Plymouth, with
the largest and newest printing es
tablishment, and it will maintain its
lead by being the best paper, without
any aid from the public taxes.

INDIANA SUPREME:
STAGE AND BOOKSHOP.
Indianapolis News.
Indiana is much in evidence on the
stage just at present as the fruit of
her literary excellence. With Mr.
Mansfield's production of Booth Tark
ington's "Beaucaire" in Philadelphia,
it is pertinent to note that at the
same time Lew Wallace's "Ben Hur"
is still playing to full houses. Julia
Marlowe in Charles Major's "When
Knighthood Was in Flower" is dupli
cating her success of last season, while
Virginia Harned is this week to ap
pear in Maurice Thompson's "Alice
of Old Vincennes." Three of these
plays thus dramatized from books by
Indiana authors we know have won
popular approval. There is-hardly a
doubt that the dramatization from
Maurice Thompson's book will be
represented on the stage by a "big
four" indeed. There is great en
couragement in all this. No single
community is more prominent in the
literary work of the time than In
diana. So striking has been this
manifestation in recent years that it
has attracted universal attention, and
anything from Indiana now can get a
hearing and is awaited eagerly; in
advance is held to be worthy of con
sideration. It is an enviable reputa
tion. While "Alice of Old Vincennes"
may remind us that we have suffered
in the death of Maurice Thompson a
severe loss, every success is an encouragement-
to all who may have
gifts to improve them to the utter
most. The brilliant example of Mr.
Tarkington is particularly gratifying,
for it is in an incident in a career that
promises goldenly.
KING OF CHICKENS
What the Agriculture Department Say$
About Plymouth Rocks.
The bureau of animal industry of
the United States department of agri
culture has just made an interesting
report, the first of its kind ever is
sued, on American breeds of fowls'
especially the Plymouth Rock.
This breed is the most popular
creation of the fancier's art. It is
not only a beautiful bird, but as a
fowl is unsurpassed. In beauty and
symmetry it heads the list of our do
mesticated birds.
The government now calls attention
to the fact that the time has come
when Americans no longer need to g
abroad to obtain either beauty or re
productiveness in fowls. The best
breeds that exist have been produced
in our own land, and when their merits
are fully understood there will be an
increasing demand for them in other
parts of the world.
There seems to be no condition,
surrounding or climate unfavorable to
the Plymouth Rock. Their constitu
tional vigor appears to have no limit.
Where any fowl can live thev will
prosper. They stand confinement,
ana wnen anowea ireeaom prove ex
cellent foragers. They are prolific in
yielding medium-sized brown eggs of
the richest flavor. Under all condi
tions they will produce as many eggs
as any thoroughbred fowl. The broad
deep and well rounded breast gives
these fowls their value as table poul
try. The notably rounded keel bone
that extends well forward helps to
build out the foundation for plenty of
breast meat.
The government's efforts for the
advancement of home bred fowls will
undoubtedly awaken renewed interest
among farmers and skilled American
fanciers in producing this the best
specimen of poultry.
Brooke's Marine Band.
A disgracefully small but highly ap
preciative audience listened Saturday
afternoon at the opera house to one of
the half dozen best concerts ever given
in this city, that by Brooke's Marine
band. The program was a wide one,
traversing the entire field between
classical music and sensational trick
effects, and every number was carried
through with a perfection of finish
that was instructive and delightful.
The visits of such excellent organiza
tions to Plymouth are, like angels'
visits, few and far between and the
paucity of the audience must4 be at
tributed to the fact that a pleasant
Saturday afternoon in October is a
busy time in an agricultural market

CHILDISH COMFORT.
it
Never Mind, Mamma, Baby
Loves You."
Eut the childish voice is almost un
heeded. The wife and mother has come
to a place where love cannot comfort
her, where even the voice and words of
love are so blent with her own misery
that they seem to increase it.
Imagine a magnificent orchestra play
ing in a factory amid the ring of ham
mers and the rattle and groaning of ma
chinery. The discords would dominate
the harmony and the harmony itself
merge into discords. That is the way it
is with all the music of love when a
woman is wrenched and racked by pain.
It seems to become part of the very dis
cord of her life.
When the cause of this suffering is
ought it will almost always be found
to be womanly disease. The throbbing
head, the aching back, and the dragging
down feeling are but symptoms of a
disordered and diseased condition of the
delicate womanly organism. When this
fact is understood the one thing for the
weak and sick woman to do is to look
for a cure of the disease which causes
her misery.
WHKRS 8HAI.I. SHX TURN
for healing? If a woman were lost p
a western prairie and found several paths
which might lead to safety, she would
take the well-trodden path in preference
to the one which showed faint signs of
travel. Why not the same in sickness?
There is a road to womanly health
which has been traveled by hundreds of
thousands of women. Read what some
of these women say.
"I take ereat pleasure in recommend
ing Dr. Pierce's medicines to other suf
fering women," writes Mrs. Mary Adams,
of Grassycreek, Ashe Co., N. C I had
internal trouble very badly until it re
sulted in ulcers of the uterus. I was
troubled with it so that I never slept a
night for seven weeks. The doctors
said I could not be cured, but I com
menced taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription and Pleasant Pellets. Af
ter taking two bottles X could sleep all
night, and after taking six bottles of
'Golden Medical Discovery and three
vials of ' Pleasant PeUets. my case was
cured. I thank God and your medicine
ior saving my me."
"Words cannot tell what I suffered for
thirteen years with uterine trouble and
dragging-down pains through my hips
and back," writes Mrs. John Dickson, of
Grenfell, Assiniboia Dist, N. W. Terr.
I can't describe the misery it was to be
on my feet long at a time. I could not
eat nor sleep. Often I wished .to die.
Then I saw Dr. Pierce's medicines ad
vertised and thought I would try them.
Had not taken cne bottle till I was feel
Irj well. After I had taken five bottles
WELL?
of Favorite Prescription and one of
Golden Medical Discovery I was like
a new woman. Could eat and sleep and
do all my own work. I would entreat
of any lady suffering from female weak
ness to gjve Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription a fair trial, for I know the ben
efit she will receive."
Mrs. Mattie Venghaus, of Tioga, Han
cock County, 111., writes: "I had been
sick for seven years, not in bed but just
. dragging myself around. At last I took
three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription and five of 'Golden Med
ical Discovery, and was well. It is im
possible to describe in words the good
these medicines did me. No praise is
too high for Dr. Pierce's medicines."
WOMAN'S CONFIDENCE JUSTIFIED.
The woman who begins the use of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription is justified
in feeling that she has taken the first
step in the path to perfect womanly
health. All womanly diseases medically
curable yield to the. healing power of
this wonderful rem-dy. It establishes
regularity, dries disa-
fret-able and weakening
rains, heals inflamma
tion and ulceration and
cures female weakness.
The periodic headache,
the distressing backache,
and exhausting bearing
down" pains are cured
permanently with the
cure of womanly dis
eases by "Favorite Pre
scription." Mothers find
in this medicine the best
preparative for mater
nity. It gives abundant
strength and makes the
baby's advent practically
painless.
W omen suffering from
chronic forms of disease
are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter, free.
All letters are privately

cian to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., has treated and
cured hundreds of thousands of sick and
suffering women.
There is no similar offer of free con
sultation by letter or free medical advice,
having behind it an institution such as
the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Insti
tute, Buffalo N. Y., with its fine equip- "
ment and skilled medical staff. The free
consultation by letter, offered by Dr.
Pierce, puts it into every sick woman's
power to have the opinion of a specialist
on her condition specialist whose
great success in the treatment and cure
of womanly diseases, is in itself an en
couragement to every sick woman. Of
the hundreds of thousands of women
treated by Dr. Pierce, ninety-eight per
cent have been permanently cured.
Favorite Prescription" contains no
alcohol and is entirely free from opium,
cocaine and all other narcotics.
If you are persuaded to try Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription because it has
cured other women, do not allow the
dealer to foist on you a less meritorious
medicine which he claims to be njusi as
good." There is no motive for such
substitution except the little more pfit
made by the dealer on the sale of the
less meritorious preparation.
