A Hrilliaut Scene ;uest from Chlca o, St. Loui, Toledo, South lU'iul, Plymouth and Laporte. The academy gymnasium of the Cul ver Military Academy was a brilliant scene Friday night. Over one hun dred guests were present in response to the invitations f the academy cadets to attend and with the most excellent of music, furnished byElbel's orchestra of South 13end, the evening was spent 'mid the pleasures of a most delightful dance. In addition tc the orchestra the Kenwood Mandolin band of Chicago was also present, having tendered its talented services for the pleasure of guests as a compliment to the academy, and come without expense to the man agement. It was unanimously compli mented for its brilliant 'execution and finished performance. Leslie's Weekly was represented by Artist 13. A. Atwater, who secured two flash light shots of the ball room in one of its most brilliant and animated scenes and carried away two photo graphic negatives for reproduction in !

It con j sists of a series of electric lights at -I tached to the tunnel walls and elect re ally connected with tin rails in such a manner, that as soon as the train reaches alight the latter is extinguished. It remains thus until the train has pro ceeded a distance of about loOO feet, when it is automatically relighted. The lo 'emotive engineer, on entering the tunnel, can see, at a glance whether the track is clear, and, if it is not, has sullicient time to bring his train to a stop. The arrangement, out side of its automatic functions serves the tunnel watchmen for the purpose of trans mitting signals. This certainly looks like a prevenative of tunnel accidents.

Miss Lonn of Laporte, also accompanied the South Bend guests. From Toledo: Mr. Sam F. Fisk and two daughters. A number ot guests were also present from Marmont and vicinity. At twelve o'clock, midnight, a special train, sent down by the Vandalia for the aceommoaqtion ot guests from Ply mouth and South bend, backed in on the academy siding and at 12:20 a m., pulled out with sixty eight passengers homeward bound leaving those from this city at the Vandalia depot at 12:50 this morning. The affair was conceded to be most enjoyable in every respect. "Paul's Joiirnvv to Koine." The lecture d. livered by Mr. Thayer at the Presbyterian church Faiday night was very interesting and entertaining, and was delivered in a manner which was pleasing to the heirers. Especial ly the one point presented, of Paul's trial before king Agrippi and his jour ney to Borne. He also gave a graphic description of Paul's trial before Caeser. Mr. Thayer also gave a description of the prison in which Paul was incarcer ated, which was in the shape of an egg so that a person could neither lie, sit, or stand with any ease or comfort. Also a vivid description of the palace of the Caesors, the Appian way, the Colliss eum and the Forum. A hearty applause was given at the close of the lecture which shows that everyone was highly pleased and entertained. and a few numbers by the band pre pared those on board to enjoy whatever came their way. On arriving at Laporte headed by the band and reception committee the Knights marched down the principle streets to the castle hall. The meeting proper commenced at 2 o'clock, by which time the large and handsomely decorated lodge room was comfortably filled. After the assembly was called to order, and a song by a male quartette, the mayor of the beautiful city of La porte bade the visitors welcome in a i anner tnat convinced his hearers that his heart was in the well chosen words This was followed by more music and ad dresses by Lieutenant Governor Ney and Grand Instructor Hunt, wir; were down on the program. These remarks were followed by others among whom we might mention, Hon. II. G. Thayer, who under all circumstances is ready to elo quently p )tray the inlluences and ben efits of Pythianism. Brother Turner, of Walkerton, also responded to a re quest to talk awhile to the Knights, while the speech making was ended by a few words by Grand Prelate Peacock. The crowning feature of the atternoon session, was the music, prepared for the occasion; ncrdo we feel as though we had expressed the appreciation of the Plymouth knights, if we did not make particular mention of the part taken by the Misses Poole and Higgins. While the other numbers were excellent, the musical numbers presented by these ladies captivated everyone present. Miss Higgins in a solo, caused a thrill of profound veneration for the inspired strains of sweet music she so ably ren dered, and those of this locality at least, would undergo another journey to our sister city for an opportunity to hear that same sweet solo rendered. After the public reception of Grand Oilicers, At- A ... . i me meeting went into secret session, when the exemplieation of the unwrit ten work of the order was given by Grand Instructor, Union B. Hunt. session opened at 5S Since the publication or an interview mi the Turkish- Armenian question with our distinguished citizen, the Hon. W. B. Hess, by the Chicago Inter-Ocean of last Tuesday there has been such a demand for the published article that we believe we are more than justified in re-publishing the extracts given below. Mr. Bess was Consul General at Con stantinople in 188(J ll and is a recog nized authority on current international affairs centering in the Ottoman Em pire. He said: The situation is very critical. The treaty powers are simply playing a game on the diplomatic chess board for posi tron. The policy of the Cleveland ad ministration in not protecting Armen ians who are Amerian citizens is alto gether wrong. Ic has been an entering wedge to despotism because it has per mitted the Turkish government to rule out anybody as a suspect. The trouble originated in President Cleve land conceding to the Turkish govern ment tho right to exclude from the em pire all "undesirable persons." Had the Sublime Porte undertaken to apply that doctrine under former administration, under Blaine, or even under Freiing huysen, the assumption would not have been tolerated 'for a moment. They would have carried out the long-established principle of our government, which is to protect naturalized Ameri can citizens the same as native born. I hold the treaty powers morally re sponsible for the Armenian massacres because under the Berlin treaty the provinces were placed under the con trol of the treaty powers and were prom ised a better government under the di rection of the Christians. Notwith standing, things have been growing worse and worse ever since. There is no doubt in my mind that those powers there will just dilly dally w ith this mat ter until they can succeed in getting a satisfactory arrangement and agreement as to how the spoils shall be divided up, and then whenever that is done it won't take them very long to simply say to the sick man to move across the Bosporus or even the Euphrates or to perform his obsequies outright. As a mater of notoriety the Sultan holds his tongue to day, in Europe at least, simply through the jealousy of these six great powers, and he knows that just as well as any body. For instance there is in the Imperial Ottoman IJank, an English institution controlled by English capital, a notice that it has loaned the Sultan si, 000,000 How thai bank, with its thirty odd branches throughout the Ottoman Em pire, would not, m my judgement, have made that loan if it hud not been as sured by the British government that there was no imminent danger of the dimeinberment of Turkey. And be sides that, England and France hold a threat amount of Turkish bonds, and both countries have their own agents at Constantinople to collect a portion ot the revenue direct from the Turkish government to apply upon the principal and interest of the debt, not even letting the money pass into the hands of the Turkish ollieials. How would we like lo have a foreign government run such an agency in connection with our treasury? 1 believe the naval deniontration in theBay ot Salon ica was not for the pur pose solely or principally of compelling the Sultan to accept those reforms. When England got her war ships there, those other powers got jealous, and practically steamed up into Smyrna Bay and rouud about to kind of watcri the British union jack. It is all a bit of ma leuvering for most advantageous position. It is not at present to the commercial and financial interests ot the powers that the Turkish Empire should be dismembered. The spoils are recognized as a certain reversion. -A. IV evening $G.OOO Judgement. Mrs. Imogene Hyatt, of Mentone, re ceived judgment in Miami circuit court about one year ago against Albert Tucker, of Kosciusko county, for 30,000. The judgment was on last Thursday aflirmed, in the supreme court of Indi ana. Mrs. Hyatt was in our city yes terday consulting her attorneys Mc To Owner of Wheeln.

Prices reasonable. o clock, and work in three ranks was given. At 15 o'clock p. m., after word of commendation from the Grand Oilicers, and cordial hand shaking, the district meeting adjourned to meet in its next session at South Bend. NOTKS. A large number of the Plymouth knights, took in "Trilby" at the opera house. The mayor told the boys that the police force would be off of duty and that i he street cars would run all right. We did not see any of the uoys using the street cars, although some of them had pressing engagements several blocks away. It seemed to be a difficult task to se cure a bed, and we heard of one fellow who walked up and down the hallway of the European hotel calling for bed clothes. The invitation given to "take what wa9 in sight, and if you did not see what you desired, to call for it," was followed out to the letter. The boys all returned home yesterday at 0:15; and while they were unanimous in pronouncing it a grand time, it was pleasing to note the smile of satisfac tion exhibited when the familiar scenes of Plymout.i presented themselves to view. The universal expression was heard : There's no place like Plymouth. An i:4-cl lent Meeting. Sunday afternoon one of the most pleasant meetings of the V. M. C.

An old tuner in the newspaper work, and a man, too, who knows the kind of st nil that must be connected with a man's mrike up w ho desm-s to crtate a stir m ilie little corner of the earth he is helping to move along, w inds up w ith ttie following: "Our citizens will welcome the mer chant, manufacturer, the capitalist or the mechanic who wishes to make a home in this bu-tling, busy town; but we don't want any "dead men." Of course when we speak of dead men in this connection we have reference to those antiquated old fossils w ho never do anything for the community in which they live who are blind to pub lic improvement, and who are also croaking dismally about the future of their town. This class of men are bar- nacles. They are a positive hindrance to the growth of any place and when a town is cursed with their presence it behooves the citizens thereof to arrange a few first-class funerals with the friends of the barnacles as their chief mourners." WANTS A HOMh. A Gla Factory that Desire to Mote to a New Town. The following is taken from the Pekin, 111., Times, and while we do not know, or vouch for, tne truth of the report, it might be of material benefit for Plymouth to enquire into the mat ter. We have plenty of room for such an institution. " Pekin cannot have too many fac tories. She bhould endeavor to secure all that are in sight and that aie look ing for a new location. The more fac tories we have the bigger and more prosperous we will become, and just now there is a chance of securing a big glass factory. The Lippincott Company, of Alexandria, Indiana, wants to move and is looking for a location. It wants a good place to build or buy a site and wants to have a place where there will be lots of fuel and sand easily arcessi- Ule and a town where it can procure plenty of buys to work in the factory. It employs a force large enough tore quire several hundred men and boys. The company makes chimneys, lantern globes and ware of that class and is a wealthy one. If the business men who want to see the town go ahead make tne proper offers to the Lippincott Company they can secure it for Pekin. It has already refused to go to Alton, owing to inability to secure boys enough in that town. Our improvement asso ciation has apparently lapsed into in nocuous dessuetude and its work is nil, but the Tazewell club recently an nounced its intention of looking after the business welfare of Pekin and this is the golden opportunity. The people will expect them to act, and by making "a long pull and a strong pull," there is no doubt of the result." .V l'roper Promulgation. The National Union, in the following newspaper lines, says: 'To run a newspaper without occa sionally publishing an item that is un true or gives offense, is like running a railroad without having smash ups and accidents. It can't be done. No man in the world is so much imposed upon as the editor of a newspaper. Pushed with work continual! lie must rely upon second and third parties for in formation as to the events that trans pire. Frequently statements are le an exchange, irom re these meetings is assured and there is no doubt but great good will be acorn plished. An effort, we are informed, will be entered into immediately to secure suf ficient funds to proceed at once with the work that is necessary to make this association a success and it will devolve upon our business nien to give it the proper eneouragement. No one feature is of more importance to a community than a Young Men's Christian associa tion, and as our people never do things by halves, we will in a short time be able to say that Plymouth has the finest in the state. Judgre Hubbard Heilders an Important leclttlou In the Circuit Court. Judge Hubbard, of South Bend, rendered an important ruling in the La port circuit court Friday last, deciding in the Blodgett case from Union Mills that persons have a right to withdraw their names from a remonstrance. The board of Laporte county commissioners refused a liquor license on the ground that a majority of residents had remon strated. Agitation resulted in the with drawal of names from the remonstrance commissioners held that the petitioners could not legally withdraw. Judge Hubbard reversed their decision.
