Onp Year $l.m I:t!i- Now that Kngland is getting oX her war horse and accommodating herself to a more conciliatory mood it is to be hoped that the Venezuelan boundary line may be llxed definitely for the next centurv. Jons ;ehr"s release from the peni tentiary and return to the scene of his depredations seems to have again em boldened the miners to the striking point. When (lehr returned there were many liquid congratulations and much boisJrous metiy makim:. Whether this had anything directly to do with the strike r n;t is uncertain but if lift the immediate strike is quite a nuticable coincident. I the light of very recent develop ment.s t !.e pi obanle relationship of the Tinted States to Eng and at the end of thirty or sixty das from this date i? purely speculative and wholly a matter of conjecture This is none the less true of tiioe within the charmed dip lomatic circle-that with the fairly well read mass of people. If the living squadron is bound for American waters for the purpose of protecting the Cuban rights which it is believed Spain is about to cede to lit itain, the Kagle and Lion are certain to meet in deadly com bat. If recent dispatches are not misleading the Tnited states has already set on foot t tie most active preparation for war which, if England attempts to take possession of Cuba on any pretext, by Spanish authority or not. is as certain as the national patriotism of our people. Tiiiikk is much good sense and sound philosophy in this observation by the Minneapolis Times: While we recog nize that there maybe honest differences of opinion on all subjects of inquiry, and that we should be tolerant of those who differ from us.it does not follow JLUat all opinions are entitled to equal respect. Each is to be judged tyitse-f and on its own merits. We may, and indeed should, dispute the opinion that we believe to be erroneous, that out of the debate the truth may be read ed, whatever it may be. Uut this does not imply intolerance toward those who hold the wrong opinion, especially when we know they are conscientious and have done some honest thinking on the sub jrct. We should rather welcome those who dispute with us because hey hon estly disagree with us.than the so called friends who play upon our vanity by pretending to believe all we say. I'ly moiil Ii ;rvtli i rat ifv injj. The business men of Plymouth held a rousing meeting and banquet Tues day night, over 200 being present. The affair was given under the auspices of the Business Men's Association and was a brilliaut affair. The city has made the largest advancement during the past two years in its history. The growth in population the pist year has exceeded that of any previous year. Valparaiso Star. Well, we should say yes. And the prospects for ttie coming year, not withstanding the excellent growth of the past 12 months, which beyond doubt wiJJ exceed any other town in the state of Indiana, are the brightest in our history. Why should this not be? We have the land; the location; the railroad fac ilities, branching out toward the four corners of the earth, an intelligent class of people, that desire to see this ad vancement, and best of all, a Business Men's Association that proposes to make tilings hum this newly dawned year. Yes, "Plymouth's Growth is (J ratifying." A New C ure. Just as soon as a good thing is dis covered along comes some one else and tries to beat it. Ever since the publica tion in this paper about the newly dis covered consumption cure, reports come in thick and fast. The latest is from the Laporte Argos, who is authority for the report that a man in that localit was miraculously cured of consumption by annointing of oil. The only hope for it to be a truthful tale is the fact that a preacher did the work. Not Wanted. (Ieo. T. Pressler is a young man who has for some time lived in one half of . his father's house near Columbia City. For some reason not mentioned in the complaint the old man desired him to vacate the ranch, (ieorgie refused. The old man tacked a notice upon the door, and for this supposed insult Oeor gie gave his father a thumpiDg. In court the loving son was considered en tirely out of order r.nd.fincd XMAS- A Subscriber take Brother Mattiucly of the Kourbon Mirror to Tatk. It seems that some one of the Hour bon Mirror's subscribers did not appre ciate the manner in which UrotherMat- tingly spoke of Christmas, in using the word Xmas. and in his array of ob jections alleged that the use of the word Xmas was a light, frivolous and profane reference to one of our most sacred anniversaries, ilrother Miner, of the Columbia City Post, in referring to the i accusation, sajs: 'Evidently the subscriber and the editor do not understand that the letter X is the symbol of the cross, alluding to the crucifixion of Christ, and "Mas" or mass, means simply the story of the crucifixion an I resurrection, of Christ. Instead of "Xmas" being light, frivolous and profane, it is one of the most strik ing and beautiful symbols of the story of Christ and the cross that could possi blv have been conceived." j ......, T..nniiit. institute.' j Teachers Institute of Center!

A large number of enthusiastic republicans from the entire district as sembled there for the purpose of elect ing a chairman for this district. This position will be one of importance this year, as the district chairman will be a member of the state central committee, and several prominent and intluential republicans are after the position. Among those who went from Plym outh we might mention, John Wiltfong chairman of the county central com mittee, Joe Black, Wm. Kendall and J. W. Parks.

Some people think that it is not essen tial to laud the advancements and pro gress of a city. Somehow they have a misconception of the boundless ter ritory the acquirements of a city's growth may reach through the columns of a newspaper. It is not so much for those who live in a town that these words of praise and commendation are uttered, but for those who are looking fir a location, and when they read, they reflect; when they reflect, two to one they act; and when they act well, those are the kind Of people we want , to help build up our city.
