STATES MIXED UP.
A Troublesome Boundary Question
[Between Indiana and Ohio.
The Latter State Claims a Portion of
Hoosierdom lndiana Wants Part
of Illinois to Get Even.
A LINK WRONGLY LOCATED.
Indianapolis, ind., Nov. 7.—The In
diana and Ohio boundary line question
has assumed a startling aspect. It is
alleged that Ohio is entitled to & slice
off Hoosierdom varying from 18 miles
wide at the northern boundary of the
state to nothing at the southern
line. It is not generally known,
but it is nevertheless a fact
that a survey party, sent out
by the national government, has
been at work on the problem for the
last two months for the purpose of
locating the boundary line between the
two states. The work has been under
the direction of Prof. Mendenhall and
has been personally conducted
by CoL Sinclair. The work
has been completed within the
last few days, and the surveying party
is now preparing its report which will
be ready to submit to the government
in about three weeks. The survey, it
is said, will probably establish the fact
that the true line as declared when Ohio
became a state commences 12 miles west
of the present boundary line at the
north and runs directly south to the
present line between Ohio and Indiana,
thus making a strip of 1,800 square
miles to which the state of Ohio lay*
claim. The strip described include*
the cities of Fort Wayne, Richmond
and Union City and a total population
The agitation of this question com
menced about a year ago through a
resolution adopted by the Ohio legis
lature reciting the facts as stated and
asking the national government to cor
rect the line. The detail of th* sur
veying party to locate the line was or
dered by the government in compliance
with this resolution.
An inquiry info the causes that led
to the juggling of these boundary lines
discloses that at the time Ohio was
made a state there were poet trader*
located at Richmond and Fort Wayne,
whose trade with the Indians was
very profitable. If the line had been
run oorrectly these posts would
have been taken Into the new state of
Ohio and the occupation of these
traders would have been gone. The
post traders accordingly bribed the
survey party which located the line
and Richmond and Fort Wayne were
left on the Indiana side.
The question is considered here as a
highly important one, for should the
elatm of Ohio be pushed, Indiana, It it
claimed here, will insist upon having
as her right a corresponding slice off
Illinois. The state charter providesfo*
a certain width at thy northern boun
dary This, it is provided, is to be main
tained on the east and to be continued
ea the west until the line reaches the
Wabash river, whleh it follows to the
Ohio river, which constitutes the south
ern boundary of each state. The dlafca

the city of Chicago would be included
in the territory, should it be captured.
Chicago, Nov. 7.—Fernando Joneu
whose long connection with the rew
estate title business has made hies a
recognized authority on the question «f
land boundaries, ridiculed the
proposition that the Indiana line
could be moved so tkf
west as to include Chicago.
"The boundary line Illinois
and Indiana," said he, "has been sur
veyed and established by a oota
missloa appointed for that pur
pose by both states and the federal
government, and granite blocks have
been set up at several different points
as monuments of the boundary. It is
a settled principle of law that boundary
lines se established cannot be dis
turbed. The claim that the Ohie-In
diana line was falsely placed by the
Surveyors who were bribed by
the post traders—which is likely
enough—does not affect the Illinois

A PROLONGED DROUGHT.
Springfield, 11L, Nov. o.—The
drought in central Illinois la assuming
dangerous proportions and unless relief
is soon had there will be much suf
fering and heavy damage to the
wheat crop, which, however, up to
this time seems to have stood
the dry weather remarkably well.
This is probably owing to the
light rains which have refreshed
the verdure, though producing
no visible effect upon wells and
streams, which are almost dry. In fact,
the smaller streams are entirely dry
and farmers all over the country are
boring deep wells in order to get water
for their stock. At only one time in
the last three months has an inch or
more of rain fallen in one day,
and that was on September 28,
when an inch and a half of water felL
There seems to be little or no com
plaint among the farmers at present
concerning the wheat crop, but all are
looking forward with anxiety, fearing
a continuation of present conditions
will prove fatal to it. The most seri
ous problem at present is the water
supply for drinking purposes and the
diseases which follow the use of im
pure water, which are already some
what prevalent in this city and the sur
SOUTHERN INDIANA VERY DRY.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 9.—Secre
tary Bagley, of the state board of agri
culture, has advices from all portions
of the state regarding the extent of
damage done by the drought, which
has now prevailed in some localities for
three months, and reports that the
situation in southern Indiana is unpre
cedented, considering the season of the
year. The territory affected includes
nearly the entire southern half of the
state and in the majority of cases
there has not been enough rain in the
last ninety days to lay the dust.
In Sullivan, Lawrence, Jackson,
Greene, Washington, Orange, Scott
and Jennings and as far north as
Bartholomew many of the wells
are exhausted and the streams dried
up and hundreds of farmers are driv
ing their stock from 8 to 7 miles for
water and hauling water for domestic
use. Fnrther south the condition is
nearly as bad, though there 6eems to be
little scarcity of water for domestic use.
The only crop to be affected by the
drought is the winter wheat, ana this
is suffering perceptibly throughout
the territory embraced in southern In
diana. The grain sprouted well and
showed a tolerably healthy growth, but
the ground was so dry that the roots
did not take a deep hold, and the
recent high winds have carried
away the pulverized particles of earth,
leaving them exposed to the sun.
Owing to this fact and the absence of
moisture there has been no growth
within the past forty days, and many
fields will be a total loss unless oopious
rains should fall within a few days.
The condition has been rendered
more alarming by the appearance of
the Hessian fly, which is rapidly de
stroying what the drought has left. In
some eounties whole fields have been
destroyed by the fly, and its effects are
seen to a greater or less extent in the en
tire territory. Conservative estimates
place the damage to the crop in south
ern Indiana at 83 per cent, but it will
greatly exceed this unless relief should
come withing a few days. While the
weather in northern Indiana is very
dry in localities, there is yet no per
ceptible damage to the wheat
WISCONSIN NEEDS BAIN.
Oshkosh. Wis., Nov. 9.—No rain to
amount to anything has fallen here
within six months, and in consequence
a general drought prevails over this
section of country. There is no water
in the small streams and on a number
of farms the wells are dry. In many
Instances farmers are compelled to haul
water several miles for stock. The
water in the Fox and Wolf • rivers was
so low during the fall that no rafting
could be done at the usual places, and
In consequence the sawmills were com
pelled to shut down much earlier than

Louis villk, Ky., Nov. 9.—ln most
sections of the state no rain of any con

months. Forests and fields are parched
and ready to burn if touched by a
spark. Fires are numerous and hard
to check. Farmers are hauling water
in some places a considerable distance,
and many of the smaller towns are
pinched for a water supply. Stock is
suffering, fall grass is injured and early
feeding will be necessary. During the
two last weeks prayers for rain have
As to wheat, the continued drought
is having a very harmful influence on
the crop. The acreage already sown
is about equal to last year, but the con
templated acreage is 10 to 15 per cent,
short; the early seeding came up well
and in favored localities looks fairly
promising. The bulk of the sowing
was late on account of the difficulty in
breaking the parched land. The chief
trouble will be that the late wheat will
not have time to take root, and a hard
winter will freeze and thaw and kill
it out. Many of the fields are now
brownii g and unless rain comes very
soon the crop will be largely a failure
In some localities water is sold at a
high price. The owner of the Logan

at the spring, and haulers demand
about twenty-five cents more for it in
town. The scarcity of water in Ful

DROUGHT IK KANSAS
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 9.—Reports from
all parts of the state show that the
prospect for the next year’s wheat crop
is not very encouraging. In southern
and southeastern Kansas no raip has
fallen to speak of for over two months
and the ground is very dry. In that
section the earth was so hard that
farmers could not plow and were com
pelled to harrow the seed in on old
Stubblefields and those where the'eorn
had been cut and shocked. The result
is there was not sufficient moisture to
cause all the grain to sprout Never*

\ w do Sul the news
* has caused a
Fonseca. most unfavor
ble impression. Great anxiety is
felt as to the result of Fon
seca's proclamation and the disso
lution of congress. It is officially an
nounced that the president has con
vened the nation to elect new repre
sentatives at a date to be determined
After the trouble between Fonseca
and congress, which resulted in the dis
solution of that body, this city was the
scene of riots caused by the ordering
of the troops under arms.
Martial law was proclaimed As in
previous cases a striot oensorship of
the press was established. All com
munication by telegraph was
stopped. A spirit of revolt was
manifested in the army. When Fon
seca was informed of this fact he
went at once to the troops and made
them a stirring address, promising te
guard their interests and to protect
them in all their rights. His words
had a good effect The unruly spirits
were completely brought arouhd to his
side, and at the end of his address
loudly cheered him.
The chiefs of the army then re
quested Fonseca to resume the func
tions of a dictator, saying that the
emergency demanded it. He appeared
to demur for a time, but at length gave
his consent. He then issued a decree
relating the cause of disagreement
between him and congress and de
fending his position. At the same
time he declared that congress
had gone so far in its attempts to in
terfere with his prerogatives that he
thereby dissolved it It had no longer
any excuse for existing, he said, since
it was passing laws that were contrary
to the constitution. This occurred on
The troops Wednesday morning
?iarched to the palace where President
onseca was holding a conference with
his military commanders. A conference
of the ministers was also in progress.
At 9 a. m. Fonseca’s decree was made
public. He said the dictatorship was te
last until the political revolutions were
at an end and law-makers learned to
keep in progress with republican ideas.
A dictatorship, he added, was the best
thing for the disturbed country. Be
disclaimed any intention of prolonging
it after peace had been restored
throughout the country.
Telegrams received from Porto
Alegro, in the state of Rio Grande de
Bui, declare that the authority of the
dictator is not recognized there. Alegro
has a population of some 80,000 inhab
itants. Rio Grande de Sul is one of the
most prosperous and independent
of all the states. It has a pop
ulation of nearly 500,000. The re
publicans in it say that thqy will not
tolerate a dictatorship and are demand
ing armed opposition to Fonseca. They
say that he wishes to restore imperial
rule, with himself as emperor, ana that
he has grown tired of republican gov
ernment. The navy has pronoflneed in
favor of Fonseca. Rio is now quiet
It is believed that the revolt will be
put down and that peace will be re
stored at an early date.
Fonseca, in his manifesto, says that
he will govern in accordance with his
constitution. The national guard has
been mobilized in the province of Rio
Qrande. The troops are in their quar
tera An outbreak is feared owing to
the influence of the opposition. Com

It is said the government is ready to
maintain order by every means; thatt
th* constitution will be respectedff and
that the government will also be an
swerable for all natienal engagements.
The governors of the leading provinces
have congratulated President Fon
seca upon bis success in maintaining
order. The general situation is un
changed. The crisis arose from con
gress accusing President Fonseca of
having unwarrantably assumed sov
ereign power. The freedom of the
press is suspended. The embargo has
been removed from cipher telegrams,
but press telegrams and newspaper
comments are subject to a rigorous

Opponents in Danger.
A TALK WITH DOM PEDHO.
Lisbon, Nov. 9. —Cable dispatches re
oeived in this city from Rio Janeiro
contain the information that all the
theaters and other places of amusement
have been closed by order of the au
thorities. The soldiery are patrolling
the city for the purpose of preventing
any assembling of the people. All
the public buildings are being
guarded by troops and the state of
siege is being prosecuted with vigor. A
commission has been appointed for the
summary trial of persons charged with
being enemies of the republic, and
upon conviction on that charge they
will be banished from the country.
Rio Janeiro, Nov. 7. —President de
Fonseca assumed the supreme com
mand barely in time to prevent the
fruition of a conspiracy to restore the
empire. This conspiracy is known to
have strong European support, and
has been directed in Brazil by
adherents of the ex-imperial
family, who were leniently permitted
to remain in the country. But for the
president’s action they would probably
have attempted a coup d’etat within a
few days. As it is the Brazilian
authorities are aroused to the ut
most vigilance, and both the army and
navy are loyal to the republic. Several
arrests have been made, and all those
to whom treason can be brought home
wiU be dealt with severely. Others
under strong suspicion will be ex
pelled from Brazil. Entire tranquility
prevails, and it is believed that there
will be no outbreak.
President de Fonseca U in good
health and has the loyal support of his
ministers and the executive authorities
in all departments. It is reported that
tlhe Count d’Eu, son-in-law of Dom
Pedro, i® at the bottom of the present
effort to undermine republican govern
ment in Brazil.
The count is said to have been in
communication with Brazilian restora
tionists, and has been watched in be
half of the Brazilian government more
closely than he supposed. It is not
thought that Dom Pedre has any share
in the conspiracy, or even a knowledge
of it There is considerable agitation
ip the provinoe of Rio Grande da
Sul, wherfe the events at Rio
Janeiro are considered to be but
a prelude to the restoration of the em
pire. Northern Brazil is decidedly In
favor of an empire, and only in central
Brazil is the republic popular. This
may lead to Dom Pedro's grandson be
coming chief of the state under a re
gency of three prominent citizens rep
resenting the northern, southern and
central provinces, and insuring the
unity of Brazil.
President Dsodoro de Fonseca’s ac
tion in assuming the dictatorship is
very generally approved here. Little
doubt exists in the minds of the best
informed people that a conspiracy ex
isted for the purpose of overthrow
ing the government, and it
was realized that only such se
vere measures aa were taken would be
sufficient to frustrate the schemes
of the conspirators. While martial
law is in force in Rio, and under the
president’s proclamation will remain
bo for sixty days, everything is as quiet
here as it was before the trouble, and
there are no signs, outward at least,
of any further outbreak.
The daily papers in Rio de Janeiro
have little to say of the situation of af
fairs, generally reserving their com
ments. Houses of such of the senators
and deputies as are known to be in op
position to. the dictator are closely
watched by the polio*. Several of the
ministers in President Fonseca’s cabinet
have resigned their portfolios, but
active steps are being taken to speedily
present and adopt measures which will
insure the economical working of the
government, and thus gain the con
fidence of the people. Several of the
governors of the provinces have sent in
their adhesion to the dictator, who an
nounces that he will be able to assure
a resumption of tranqullty throughout
the country in a short time.
Paris, Nov. 9. —Dom Pedro, ax-em
peror of Brazil, said Friday that he
knew little of what had happened dur
ing the last two years in his unfortu
nate country. During a long life all
his strength, all his devotion had been
given to insure the progress and pros
perity of his people; he had sac
rificed everything rather than plunge
the country in civil war. When
news of his deposition was conveyed
to him at Petropolis he need only have
shown himself at Rio and the revolu
tion would have been at an end; he
had but to go down among the people
alone and unarmed, but the idea that
his presence might lead to conflict
and bloodshed affected him so
that he preferred exile. His decision
he was convinced was the greatest
proof he could have given of his love
for Brazil. Another proof not less
convincing was Ids absolute determina
tion never to make any attempt to re
establish the throne. He never had
any personal ambition; never enter
tained any other wish than that
et promoting the welfare ®f his
eountry; desired to be nothing but
pastor populi. Whether Brazil re
gretted his paternal government and
admitted that the new regime was the
work of a faction actuated only by
personal motives he knew not. All he
did know was what he read in the pa
pers, but he might say that in exile he
loved his people more than ever, and
should the Brazilian people call upon
their old emperor, he would forget alike
age, infirmities and sorrows, and un
dertake at once the risks of the long
voyage, in order once again to stand
in the midst of his children and devote
to their welfare what was left of his
vital energy. He should be amply re
warded if he were able to sleep his last
sleep in his beloved country.

OHIO’S BOUNDARY LINE.
The Attorney General Does Not Think
Indiana Will Lose Any of Her Terri
Washington, Nov. 9.—Attorney Gen
eral Miller says he does not believe
anything can come of the efforts being
made to take a slice from the eastern
side of Indiana and attach it to Ohio.
Officers of the geodetic survey have re
cently been examluing this border line
at the request of the state of Ohio, but
the survey has been more in the line of
scientific research than in anticipation
of an actual change of the boundary
line. The attorney general says that
in any event the question Of boundary
ia one for the states to determine and
that the federal government can have
nothing to do with the question.

A CHANCE FOR ARTISTIC AND LITERARY TALENT.
We need TWENTY or MORE original and striking designs for Newspaper Adver
tisements of SANTA CLAUS SOAP.' The manufacturers, Messrs. N. K. Fairbank
& Co., authorize us to pay
Ten Dollars Each
for approved drawings with appropriate reading; or $5.00 each for designs or reading
matter only. This offer is open to all who have facility in illustration. The competition
will close December 10, 1891. About January I, 1892, we will pay for accepted designs,
and return the others.
Directions. — Make drawings with black ink on heavy white paper, or card board. Do
the work in outline. Elaborate shading will not print well. Space in papers will be about
four inches square. Draw to larger sctde if you prefer, but have design square. The idea
is most important. If that is good we can have it redrawn and still give you credit. Avoid
doggerel in which soap rhymes with hope, &c.

household use — a favorite wherever known. Generous praise will be well bestowed. Sold
by all grocers, wholesale and retail.
