A HOOSIER SENSA'I‘ION.
Several Prominent People Impu
cated In the Burning of :1
Courthouse.
INDIANAPOLIS, .Oet. 14.—A special from
Washington, Indiana, says: Detectives
have been at work for a week on the court
house fire and so far have arrested four per
sons supposed to have been connected
with it. Samuel Harbine. a day laborer
living here, after being arrested confessed
his crime and implicated several promi
nent people in it. As a result, Auditor
James C. avalle end A. B. Hawes. romi
nent citizens of Steel township and Basil
Ledgerwood were arrested today. Officers
are now outafter Michael Lavalle, brother
of the auditor. Harbiue’s story is that
Lavalle hired him to burn the courthouse
for SSOO, only $5 of which had been paid.
It is reported that Ledgerwood is also
anxious to turn state’s evidence.
He claims to have been given a
house and lot for his part. Au—
ditor Lavalle’s bondsmen, becoming fright
ened at the turn aifairs had taken.
required him to turn all his property over
to them. Lavalle has been auditor for
eight years and the fact that the people
had confidence in him makes his arrest the
sensation of the hour. He is supposed to t
be short in his accounts, but no one knows l
the amount. Experts are at work on his‘
books. Hawes is in good circumstances.‘
He is a desperate character. The city is l
full of people from the country and busi- ;
ness is practically suspended. The four
prisoners were taken before Judge Hefron 1
this morning. They waived the prelimiw
nary examination and were held in default
of bail. A later dispatch received says
Ledgerwood and Harbine plead guilty in
court this afternoon. Sentence was sus
pended by the judge as they will be used
as witnesses. ‘
Fronl Bering Sea.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oet. 14.—-The steamer
Al-Ki, which has been acting as a tender
to government vessels in‘ the Bering sea,
returned here today after four months
absence. Among those whom she brought
down from Alaska were United States
District Judge Tarpley, of Ounalaska and
Thomas Boswell and Henry Shel’fner. of
the schooner Marguerite, Captain Pool,
which left Seattle May 16th. The schoon
er was under charter to a mining company
to survey certain portions of the Alaskan
coast. When the vessel anchored at Molar
Bay. 200 miles northwest of Sitka, Boswell
and Sheffner went ashore. They came on
bear tracks and followed them with the
result that they had a close light with a
bear who succeeded in knocking Boswell
down and breaking the bones in the lat
ter’s right leg with her jaws. Shefl‘ner shot
and killed the bear, then bore his compan
ion to the coast, a distance of about
eighteen miles. From the schooner they
were transferred to the Al-Ki.

Curious Old Document. ,
One of the dealers in second-hand books
in Washington has unearthed a curious
old document in the shape ofa subscrip

bearing.r date in the year 1774, in which
George Washington, Charles Carroll, Will
iam Ellery and several other more or less
notable Americans bind themselves by
their autograph signatures to pay the va
rious sums opposite their names in
pounds. shillings and pence toward the
expense of cleaning the bed of the Poto
mac river. The parchment is badly faded,
but most of the writing can still be read ‘
without difficulty. The document recalls‘
the time when the city of Washington had
not been thought of, when Alexandria was
a flourishing shipping port and when the
improvement of the river channel was of
reatcommercial importance to all the to
bacco producing country round about.

further, however, that should it ever he
come necessary to change our llag, wluch
God forbid, we would rather see in its
place the flag of the United States than
that of any other country.” _

NEW YORK, Oct. lib—The waves were
nearly thirty feet hign at Rockaway beach,
washing dwellings and boats to sea. Many
pleasure crafts are missing since Sunday,

and Alden Little, of New York, hired two
boats equipped for shark fishing. One boat
has been found washed upon the beach
without occupants, but nothing has been

holding in all sixteen men, let out Sunday
afternoon to a fishing party, has not been
seen since and it is thought they were
carried out to sea.

Ireland and South Scotland for over twenty—
four hours, continues today. Passenger
boats which usually venture out in the

unable to cross last night. From all sec
tions comes reports of damage done and
lives endangered. It is impossible yet to
give an approximate idea of the damage
done on land and sea, or lives lost. At
Helensburg, a watering place on First and
CI de streets, was flooded and people
driven from their homes. Two passenger
trains between Glasgow and Helensburg
were brought to a stand still by waves
which threatened to wash away the tracks.
The fires were put out and the engines were
‘ unable to move. Escape from the cars was
impossible. All attempts to reach the
l travelers failed.

WAsan'rON, Oct. 14.—1 t is said at the

Shanghai that the foreign minister had
closed negotiations with the Chinese gov-’
ernment cannot be true so far as represen

character have been issued by the presi

presume to take such an important step in
the absence of positive instructions.

not the’ largest, but in a club for study and
the interchange of seasoned opinions num
bers do not count. Architect A. T. Large
led off with a. paper on the question, “ls
political economy a true science, and if so,
what are the best methods of study ‘2” Mr.
Lnrge’s paper was an illustration of the
idea that “if you want anything done get a
busy man to do it.” He held that polit
ical economy was a science and was to be
studied both indirectly and deductively by
a close observer effects and by the study
of the synthetic principles connecting the
some.
Lawyer Geo. 1“. Stone read copious selec
tions from Henry George’s statement ofthe
social p'roblem in “Progress and Poverty,”
together with interestiin,r comments on the
same. Ilcthought that Mr. George was
not on solid ground when he assumes that
the abundant supply of material needs,
such as food, clothing, etc.. could eliminate
sin and wrong-doing. He questioned
whether poverty was engendered by pro
gress, as Mr. George aliirms. Mr. George
was understood to depreciate the educa—
tion of the laborer, but Mr. Stone placed
great reliance in education as a solution of
the problem. A brisk discussion followed,
in which Messrs. Savage. Adams, Swan,
h‘risch, Moore and Hoaglund took part”
It was voted not to have any recess, but
to proceed with the remainder of the pro
gramme: Accm‘dingly Dr. M.L. Adams
read 3. 130.1801 on Jlenry George's theory of
wages ant capital and the fallacies, if any,
in his statements.
He said Mr. George’s views may he
stated in three propositions: First, that
with the increase of production, wages
tend to a minimum barely sufficient to
support life. Second, that wages and sup—
port of laborers are not drawn from cupi
ml but from the production of labor.
Third, that labor is not limited by or de
pendent upon capital. he thought the
lirst statement fallacious, and quoted stn~
tistics in proof. Mr. Jelly in his Work
“The Voice of labor” gives decade averages
of labor since 1752, which show that the
wages of farm laborers have risen from 33
cents a day since that date to 98 cents in
1886, while mechanics’ wugesudvance in the
meantime from 33 cents a day to $1.50.
Professor Thorold Rogers in his book “Six
Centuries of Work and Wages,” gives sta
tistics clearly showmg that mechanics’
wages have risen in England since 1820.
Good authorities claim that factory wages
in the United States have increased 25 per
cent since 1840.
Dr. Adams also believes Mr. George’s a -
sertion that the rare of wages is not deter
mined lJy the ratio between the capital
seeking employment and the number of
laborers see (ing to be employed. His il
lustration about the truck drivel-S, itoecurs
to me, was not well chosen, because Mr.
George deela res distinctly that he wants to
he understood us speaking of productive
employment. The Doctor agreed with the
author’s second proposition, namely, that
wages are not drawn from capital, but
from the products of labor; but he is not
able to accept the third proposision, that
wages are not limited by or dependent
upon capital.
Mr. George refers to the rate of interest
as a guuge ot' the scarcitfl or abundance of
capital and declares t rat high interest
which means a scarcity of capitalis accom
panied bya high rate of wages. Dr. Adams
referred to conditions of linanciul depres
sion when the rate of interest is high but
the wage rate low in disprooi’ of Mr.
George's proposrlion. But times of com
mercial panic are abnormal states from
which it is unsafe to deduct principles ap
plying to normal conditions. Tunes of
connnerciul panic, as Mr. George says on
page 19 in a footnote, are marked by high
rates of discount, but he does not call this
a high rate of interest, but a high rate oi"
insurance against risk.
The doctor understands Mr. George to
to admit that capital does limit the form
and productiveness of labor and naturally
concludes that in so doing the author has
conceded the 'qnestion at issue.
Several stirring questions were brought
out by the paper which will form a part of
the program of the next meeting of the
section. The Malthuaian doctrine ofp'op
ulation and subsistence will be the main
topic, however, for discussion two weeks
hence. The meeting will be at A. W. Wis
uer’s office, 303 Fourth street.
