Depew had the following interview, obtained and signed by George Gran tham Bain and copyrighted: When I ask Mr. Depew what he thought should be done with the Philip pine islands he drew in his breath and said: "That's a pretty big question." Then he pushed tack his chair from his desk and swung around until he faced me. "It we should keep the Philippine islands," ßaid Mr. Depew, "we would reverse the traditions of this govern ment from its foundation. We would open up a new line of policy. "Let us see what that would mean. In the first place it would mean the establishment of a military government over possibly 10,000,000 of people ,000 miles away from us; it would mean the increase of our navy to the proportion of the navies of Europe." "Not to the proportion of England's navy," I suggested. "To the navy of France and Ger many," said Mr. Depew. "It would mean the increase of our army to 150, 000 men. It would mean the increase of our anDual expenditures to double what they are dow. It would mean that the I'nited J-tates government would be brought iu closer contact with the people than ever before in the his tory of this country. "We have known that there is a fed eral government ouly as representing our tlag, our nationality and glorious traditions, but we have not felt the burden of its support or been con fronted with the possibility of the pay ment of an enormous annual military tax, except during the civil war. In Europe, where great armies and navies are maintained, the people are taxed directly for their maintainance. Our revenues have been obtained heretofore by indirect taxation, with the exception of a slight tax on whisky. "But with the increase of our expen ditures by 100 per cent, the taxes to support the government would be felt in our homes and in our oHices. We would feel them in both the necessaries and luxuries of life in our houses, in our tools, in our food, in our clothing, in our carriages and in our wagons, in oar chscks and notff.r.nd bonds and transfers of property in every trans action of our everyday business life. For if we are to maintain great armiee and navies like the powers of Kurope we must raise the revenue for them by means mentioned and also by a stamp tax that will face us at every turn. "You cannot have empire without all its attributes and that means a practi cal revolution of our form of govern ment and an abandonment of the reliefs which the Fathers held when they es tablished this government in 1770." Democrats AVide Awake. The democratic state committee has provided speakers for 111 democratic meetings this week. In addition to these meetings the various county com mittees are sending speakers to echool houses and small villages. In Mar shall county there are Bix meetings this week not under direction of the state central committee. If the other count ies are conducting as lively a campaign as Marshall, there are this week ."J5 democratic meetings in Indiana under the management of the county com mittees. These with those under man agement of the state committee would make the total number of democratic meetings this week 003. Evidently the democrats of Indiana are wide awake. After this week, the energies will be doubled. County Chairman Vink has already arranged for more than a dozen meetings in Marshall county for next week. The state committee will also send two speakers to llremen and one to Uourbon next week. I'ruyer Chain in laiglaiul. Prayer for the defeat of William Mc Kinley will be made around the world, according to Mrs. Mary E. 1 laich, secre tary of the Indiana W. C. T. U., who started the McKinley prayer chain pledge on its mission in the United States. Mrs. lialch received a letter fi;om Mrs. Playel, a prominent English women, who was a conspicuous figure in the recent World's W. C. T. T. con gress, at Edinburgh. She says she is in sympathy with the prayer chain and is going to initiate a similar movement in England to the end that Lord Salisbury, who, she says, is as much opposed to temperance as McKinley, may be re tired. She also says that she has written to Lady Henry Somerset, pres ident of the World's W. C. T. IT., to se cure the oüicial indorsement of the world's organization for the McKinley and Salisbury prayer chains. Mrs. Ualch sent out a fresh batch of 4,0H) pledges yesterday.

I'eimionem to l'ay the 11 per. Henry Clay Evans is still Mr. Mc Kinley' commissioner of pensions. He li still adminlitering the laws of coo gress according to his own sweet will. Over 400.000 claims are pigeon-holed in the pension oilice. The Grand Army of the Republic has appealed in vain to President McKin ley for fair treatment and a fair inter pretation cf the law. But the president has refused to listen to the appeals. He has told Grand Army men who waited upon him that the money power was opposed to enlarging the pension roll. The Harden family Iteuuion. We met beneath the old apple tree, A jollier crowd one seldom Eees; Aunts and uncles and cousins and ail Had come to the carnival of the fall. Trains and buggies had conveyed them there, That each might get his share Of fun and frolic, cakes, pies and all good things Which the Ilurden reunion always brings. Not only Marshall county was repre sented, Hut otherp, too, presented Their delegation to this merry crowd. Kansas and Ohio, too, were proud That they someone could send The day in mirth to epend. Stories were told of the olden ways, (They diiler, quite, in our modern days) And of the old time Johnny cake That our grandmothers used to bake, And of the huge lire-place All a novelty to the younger race. And O, say, did you hear, We're going to meet again next year? For there never was a day such That we enjoyed as much. Hut as time goes on some will go; May we live good Jives, 6o That as the loved faces Are missed from their usual places, We may be assured of a reunion above, In the Heavenly Home of love. The reunion of the Burden family, which occasioned the above homemade rhyme, was held at the home of G. W. Gerrard, in Inwood, Oct. 0, 1Ü00. Over 150 of the relatives and a few friends gathered to renew old ties and friend ships. The tables were spread on the lawn beneath the apple trees and a feast that would rival those of King Arthur's court was placed thereon. Old-time reminiscences and jokes were indulged in by the older relatives, while a kodak and camera made fun for the younger ones. So the day too hastily went, but the next day all met at the home of Mrs. Stacy Burden, sr., to meet a newly found member of the family, E. Kiley Cooper, of Indianapolis. Among those present from a distance were: Mißses Anna Burden and Eva Bruce, Wellston, O.; Mrs. Miles Burden and two daughters, Cawker City, Kan.; Mrs. Henry Hürden, sr., and daughter, Blanche, Henry Burden, wife and son, Shadrach Burden, wife and son, Leon ard Burden, wife and daughter, of Mill Creek; George Harvestock, wife and son, Stace Burden, wife and son, of Kolline Prairie; Thomas Gibson and famil); C.

Mote, John Motk. HOW TO MARK ItAU.OTS. Attorney-Oeneral Taylor Oie uu Opin ion o ii Subject. Attorney-General Taylor, in answer to an inquiry as to how to mark bal lots in the coming election, issued the following yesterday: "If a ballot obviously intended to be marked as a straight ticket have the point at which the lines cross inside the circle, the ticket must be counted, whether any or all of the arms of the cross extend beyond the line of the circle, or inside, it must be counted. If they cross 3ch other out side the circle the ticket is to be throw out. "If a voter cannot mark his ballot, and so states to the board to decide if he is telling the truth or not, In all ordinary cases an ailidavit is unneces sary. If, however, the board believe that the voter is telling an untruth, they have an undoubted right to ak for his affidavit, so that if he has told a falsehood he may be prosecuted for per jury." A Telegrapli Liar. The following is the beginning of a dispatch sent out from Plymouth to the South Bend Tribune and other papers describing tbe republican meeting in Plymouth Saturday: "United States Senator Charles Fair banks, of Indianapolis, epoke in this city on Saturday afternoon, addressing one of the largest gatherings ever as sembled in Marshall county, embracing men of all shades of political belief." Talk about telegraph hare! Well this do eclipse them all. One of the larg est gatherings ever assembled in Mar shall county! Ha! Ha! It was only an ordinary Saturday crowd and con ceded by republicans as well as democrats to have been a smaller crowd than came to Plymouth the Saturday previous when there was no advertised attraction of any kind not even a pumpkin stow. This ought to convince our people of the fact that the republi cans, during the campaign, are seeking to bolster up their cause by glaring mis representations. Their meetings every where have been of the "lizzie" kind and they seek to deceive those not pres ent by misrepresentation. Plymouth's telegraph liar has out done himself. I.owser antl Kitt h speak. There was a splendid audience out to hear Hon. F. E. Bowser, democratic candidate for 6tate senator, at the head quarters Wedneeday night. There were at least 350 people in the hull and a splendid exposition of the ist ties was presented. Mr. Howser is a scholarly gentleman and, if elected, will confer dignity and reilect credit upon the district which he represents. He will receive the united democratic support and the republicans who had decided to vote for John K. Lawrence will aid Mr. Bowser. The democratic candi date left a very favorable impression with our people. John W. Kitch, of Bremen, followed Mr. Bowser and his sarcasm and pointed stories brought down the house. Mr. Kitch said he was in town last Satur day when the immortal "31" marched up to the court house behind Senator Fairbanks carriage. The next meeting of the club will he next Wedneeday night, on which occa sion Dr. Martin will speak. Democratic Meeting.

The republican committee has re turned from Chicago and ample funds are on hand for all good republicans. Each one is entitled to his Ehare and he is requested to call at the earliest oppor tunity at republican headquarters. It comes upon very reliable authority that there are $25 apiece for the republicans who can be counted upon as "sure for McKinley." The national committee, of the republican party, is said to have so apportioned the funds for Marshall county. All ehould see the chairman at once and get his portion. It is in the hands of the local committee and if you are not given it, it is very evi dent that others are appropriating what is allowed to you. Two Sets or City O Ulcers. The republican members of tbe South Bend city council took advantage of the absence of Councilman Montgom ery, a democrat, and began shifting the city patronage Tuesday night. The council has been evenly divided politi cally, with a republican mayor, and I Montgomery's absence it last night's meeting giving the republicans a ma jority they elected a tire chief, city 6ex- ton, city health oilicer and a street com missioner.
