The lMuii'KNini.NT is always ready
to remove suspicion from any individ
ual who is accused of a crime, be he
ever so deserving ot punishment lor
other devilment.
It has been currently reported that a
well founded suspicion was being run
to the earth, which would in all proba
bility be fastened upon W. Howell,
at this time incarcerated in the county
jail for being implicated in tho terrible
beating of an old man at Donaldson
some weeks ago. These clues, if sus
tainded, owing to the undesirable record
established by Howell, of late, would
have no doubt, though purely circum
stantial, have convicted him before any
A brother of the prisoner has pro
duced the following sent by the accused,
which if verified, will remove from J.
W. Howell any suspicion that has been
left against him as being one of the
dastardly cowards that attempted to
murder John Miller. In substance it is
as follows: He stayed Monday night,
Jan. 13th, at the home of Arthur Kilgore,
near Tyner City. On Tuesday night
the 14th, at Chas.Forsythe's.at In wood.
On Wednesday night the 15th, he stop
ped at the the South Henri house with
Wm. Ueech, and Thursday night he
says, he, in company with another fellow
named Leonard Ueech, took a special
room in the barn of Jimmie Oliver. He
further states that the truth ot these
assertions may be verified by apply
ing to the above named parties. Thus,
if these statements can be proven
true, one of the dangers hanging over
Howell's head is removed.
Ilie Neighborhood Terrorized.
A special to the Inpkpkndent says
that Lewis Canaan has laid aside his
sacrificial block and axes to the great
relief of church goers to Fairview, north
of Bourbon. He has not quit acting
queerly, however, and while a number
of people, including preacher Faulkner,
strange as it may seem, uphold him in
his pole shanty when- he promised them
some fun.
Hurch produced the polished clip-
uoaiuanu, wnat was very common to i
the brave boys in blue, a louse. The
louse was in exc llent fighting trim and
when Hurch set him on the smooth
surface of the clapboard he looked
formidable indeed and was received
with applause. 'Two to one, my louse
can lick any one in the crowd,' said
Hurch. Tho banter was returned
and another beliggerent parasite
was set beside the challenger.
They fought. Hound after round they
fought. Hurc i won. Other insects were
dropped into the arena. Hurch won
again and again. He kept the clap
board on an incline with his favorite on
the upper side but "every thing went"

We wonder if the ordinary, every day
sort of people ever noticed what honest
rejoicing is exhibited by the newspapei
fraternity, when some one who has trod
den the pathway of journalism, has
through some unexplainable freak of
fortune, came into possession of enough
money to buy more than one suit of
clothes at a setting.
Wo are pleased to record the an
nouncement made by a large number
of our exchanges that Harry M. Pindell,
a former editor of the Wabash Times, is
said to have become heir to a half mil
lion of money. The surplus came
through the death of a Mrs. II. C. Noble,
of Columbus, Ohio. Our informant
does not state whether the lady was a
relative or not, but there is not much
doubt that such is the case, for there is
to our knowledge but one newspaper
man on earth who ever received an al
lowance exceeding over $1.00 a week by
the will of a departed; and in this case
referred to, the court produced a
great array of evidence showing con
clusively that the deceased was Irre
sponsible for his actions.

Since the shooting of Miller, a hot trail
has been followed closely, which, m
all probabilities, implicates him in the
shooting of Miller. For some days just
extra efforts have been made to locate
Howell, and it was learned a few days
ago that he was in South Hend.
Investigation of the report proved
that Howell was in South Hend, and
upon watching at the postotlice, he was
discovered getting his mail under the
name of Howard. Oilicer Klingerleft
for South Hend Saturday and returned
that afternoon with Howell, who
will be placed on trial here.
While reports tly thick and fast re
garding his being implicated in the
shooting affair at the depot, sullicient
evidence has been secured that proves
he was in that locality that evening
and went to bed at the Franklin House.
At the preliminary trial in Justice
Heeve's court Saturday he waived
examination, being bound over to court
under s.'H) bonds.

The Deadly Cigarette
In all the good advice given to the
users of the subtile cigarette were em
braced in one endless strip of paper,
there is no doubt it would moreth3n en
compass the state of Indiana. Yet the
boys of our city as well as those of other
cities continue to smoke the attractive
roll. A Philadelpha dealer is responsi
ble for the following:
"The meanest thing in the shape of
tobacco is cigarettes. I suppose 1 have
sold millions of cigarettes. I often
wonder wheather niy'doing so will be
placed against my credit in the next
world. It is the one part of my busi
ness that I positively loathe. I really
think that at the rate cigarettes are
now being consumed, and the rate is
It has bee 'tue a sorry -mi i ' into
which a large number i our laigecities
have been placed by lh .r Interpre

tion of the abjath day. In Xew
York city recently, a little girl
was arrested for selling i'owtrs on Sun
day. The redeeming feature of the affair
was discovered only when she was
brought before the judge, who dis
charged her with the following remark.
'Anyone who sells (lowers has my bles
sing, and I now give it to you by dis
charging you. There is only a violation
of the law when the peace and quiet of
the vabbath are disturbed."
In the great city vi Chicago, where
evils of the very worst kind go un
punished, and where the gre.iter num
ber of the saloons carry on their busi
ness on the abbath day behind closed
doors unmolested, and where those who
are supposed to protect the city's honors
are openly charged with rcceving bribes
conditions are similar to the above.
An ordinance will be presented, and is
considered as good as passed by that
