Prank Johnson and Harry Crance, two young men about IS "years of age, got into a fight on Smith street last evening and were pummelingeach other in true pugilistic style when Officer Buechner meandered along and espied them rolling over and over in the mud. The men were soon disentangled and taken to the police station, where a charge of assault and battery was placed against, them. This morning before Mayor Oakley the men pleaded guilty. Johnson was fined and Crance 812.50. The former stayed the docket, but Crauce went to jail! He will probably be released today. Both men displayed sundry bumps and bruises as a result of their scrap. OTIJER COCItT NOTES. Judge O'Kourke has granted to Lulu Long a divorce from Prauk Long. C. S. Davidson 329 West Main street reported to the police last evening that his new overcoat had been stolen from an outbuilding where it had been hang- ing.

McOscar and Schilling and Jus- tices Bullerman and Tancy, composing LEXISCTON, Ky., March ,he aid of her sweetheart and a step- adder, Miss Ethel Matthews, the pretty daughter of It. W. Matthews, eloped at an early hour this morning. Chis morning when Mrs. Matthews went to the room of her daughters to awaken them, only Auna was there. Upon going to a window, Mrs. Matthews saw a stepladder leaning against the porch in the rear. On the dresser she found a letter, carefully written, telling her thnt her daughter had eloped and that her address for several days would be Louisville, Ky. Miss Anna says her sister did not tell her of her intentions, and she did not know when she left. It was found that her sweetheart, J. T. McCauley, had planned the elopment and had taken her and her trunk out about o'clock this morning. Board- ing the 4 o'clock train over the Cincin- nati Southern, they set out on their journey. Miss Alice Spaulding, 17, and James Auxler, 19, eloped from Paintsville, on the Big Sandy river, to Irontown, where they were married yesterday. They belong to prominent families and have tried on several occasions to run away. They got several miles down the river in a rowboat on one occasion, when they were overhauled by their parents in a steamboat. They waited for the big tide in the river, which is now running. Owing to the drift and logs, steamboats cannot navigate the stream. The lovers made their escape in a small boat, and, braving the dangers of the heavy drift- wood, tloated down to Ironton and were Mayor Pingree of Detroit spoke last tight at Bay City before the Cycling :lubs of that place. His speech comes lome to Fort Wayne readers with such force that the POST publishes part of the speech verbatim. The same con- ditions exist in every city and the cor- poration newspaper which Mayor Pin- gree attacks can be found in almost every place pretending to rule the repub- lican or democratic party as it may be most useful to the corporations it rep- resents. Let Fort Wayne people peruse this speech of the peoples champion, and if they see any shoe that fits let hem put it on the proper foot. Mayor Pingree said: HEAD OUT OF THE 1'AJITV. I do not propose to permit the Detroit Tribune and its crowd of corporation lackers to crowd me out of the rcpub- ican party to which I have all my life lelonged, nor to tell me what repub- ican principles are, for my actions will, justify me when I say that I know bet ter what these are than they do. On the contrary, I propose to show the people of Michigan that the Detroit Tribune does not represent true repub lican principles and that the few fol- lowers which it has in Detroit are all ;mies of the true interests of the peo- ple. That they are corporationists and railrond attorneys, and that they pose as republicans at present because Mich- igan is a republican state and they can is such Letter further their interests.

CORPORATIONS BUY EDITOIUALS. The Detroit Tribune proposes to read me out of the republican partr. Mr. Scripps' paper says that lam not a re- publican. Now who is Mr. Scripps, and what is the Tribune? In the prolonged struggle of the peo- ple of Detroit with corporate greed, vinch had our fair city by the throat, he Tribune was in each and every case gainst the people and has been the special advocate of the corporations. It was so in the street car fight, the fieht, the electric light others. Is it the principle of the republican party to take always the side of corpora- tions against the people? By corpora- tions. I mean combinations which are in a trust, in violation of section 1 of of the act of July 2, 1800. An act to "protect trade and commerce against unlawful restraints and monopolies, also all corporations which are mo- lopolies and exact exorbitant charges 13 common carriers or otherwise." ALWAYS TAKES THEIR PART. To take the part of such has been the steadfast policy of the Tribune, and I say that it does not represent Republi- can principles in this respect. The De- troit Tribune has been the advocate of everything good, bad and indifferent, done by trusts and combinations of all sorts. You will not find an editorial in that paper condemning any of the trust methods. It is itself part of a trust. It does not represent the great principles if the republican party in this respect. Xot even by accident does this hide- bound corpotation sheet ever take the side of the farmers or the people at large, against overcharges in freight and passenger rates by railroads, or the manipulation of prices by trusts. Take its back numbers and satisfy yourself. To aid in bolstering up trusts and rail- cr-ad abuses, is to declare war against fiic common people. This is the posi- tion of the Tribune and the crowd it represents. That is the. issue. It is common report that its opinions and editorials can be bought as you buy bread, and these have no weight what- ever with people who understand from what sources its revenue is derived. Vet this is the paper which proposes to say who may and who may not be a re- publican, and to represent the repub- lican party of Michigan. PEOPLE STOOD BY HIM. In my oftice as mayor of Detroit, I iiave stood by the people and the people jave stood by me during a long fight, 'here is, howeverVa certain element in that city, and which pretends to run the state, who have been my most bitter enemies. You may call the roll of this crowd, and I will show you that almost without are men who are profiting by abuse? from which the people at large are suffering. They arc either owners of stock in railroads, street car lines, trusts, corporations, telephone or telegraph systems, or they are hangers-on, and dependants of cor- porations in oneway or another. Some of our great politicians, those who dis- pense patronage, are our greatest cor- porationists. The little politicians, those who are after the pap only follow the lead of these men. I do not be- lieve that the masses of the republican party in Michigan are ready to admit that people of the classes mentioned, represent the republican party in this state. I say emphatically that they do not represent the sentiment of that party nor does the Detroit Tribune, which they control. MONOPOLY'S COHRUPTIOX FUND. There ia a form of indirect tax- it ion of which railroads, trust and monopoly franchise corporations are the cause, which 's even greater than the unjust and exorbitant charges and prolits which they impose upon the peonle. I refer to the large amo_____ money spent by them in corrupting the representatives of the people, m con- jress, the legislature and in conventions and courts of justice. That they do this no one who hits dealt with them will deny. H constantly necessary for them to do this in order to maintain the privileges which they enjoy. The icople are in turn swindled out of their rights and property by those who have ic corrupted. The money power spends arge sums to elect their tools to oftice, and the hitter reciprocate by plavmg into the hands of their musters. The spoil is divided. Politics has on this mill become a lucrative business, even at a small salary. The people are the victims and in the end foot tl bills TllUE TEST OF CORPOItATIOX SHEETS. This in my opinion is one of the most vital questions before the people today. Whenever you see a newspaper whicl ignores this fact, you may put it dowr that it is in the trust. Such papers bear down heavy on side issues, in order to pull the wool over people's eyes aud sidetrack them. TheTribune will tell you thai what I say about trusts and railroads makes me a popu- list, and because the Tribune approves of their methods, it claims to be a re- publican.' The Tribune usually calls me an anarchist. If anarchy means the destruction of the republic, I know of no agency or doctrine which will sooner bring this about than to eive, trusts and railroads full swing to do and charge as they please. Their ad- vocate, the Tribuue, is at heart an enemy of the people and their wellfare. Hule by these classes or ruin to the masses is its hidden motto. A FAVORED CLASS. The indirect taxation to which I re- ferred is that form of taxation levied by railroads and other public corpora- tions in the way of excessive rates of freight and passage, that form of taxa- tion levied by gas and telephone and street car companies. The state permits the organization of such companies and gives them, indi- rectly, the taxing power. If the rates ire reasonable, the indirect tax is no mrden. If not reasonable, they are op- pressive. It is the unreasonable rates that I am fighting. Many of these corporations are exempt thcmseves from taxation. If the railroad proyerly in Detroit which is exempt from taxation were placed upon the tux rolls alongside ol the products of labor and stocks merchants, and the widow's cottage, the tax which they would be required to pay would amount in round numbers to at least per year. To per- mit such corporations to levy excessive indirect taxes means to create a favored class, which sooner or later will become in aristocracy so impudent and so ty- rannical that it will take a standing army to keep their brazen crowns upon their heads. REMEDY FOR TOE SITUATION. You perhaps ask tne what remedies I have to offer for the abuses which we ill know exist. The first remedy is to take the power out of the hands of those who believe things are at present st as they ought to be and place men at the helm who can at least see and admit that there arc diseases from which the patient suffers. Mr. Pdllman said: "There is nothing to arbitrate." The rorporationists say: 'Oh let us alone, we're all and their Tribune piously says: "Amen." I not ready to admit that the moneyed power as represented in those who abuse the liberties of the republic, is greater than the people. I believe lhat the people, I mean the common men, some rights which corporations must respect. now PEOPLE .ARE TAXED. If you have money to invest, about you can get a thousand mile ticket, md thus you get a rate of 2 cents per mile. If you do not have the you ire charged 3 cents per mile. This is a specimen of the equal rights made pos- ible by railroad legislatures. This is he way In which railroad legislatures and the railroad newspapers allow the railroads the right to tax the common run of people in favor of the few. This is the way great fortunes are built up in a Christian land. This taxation through the conspiracy of railroad newspapers, with boodle legislatures. This railroad scheme is just the same i though one man was taxed 2 cents who owned 820, and the man who owned was taxed 3 cents. I say that railroad fares are a tax. You cannot make them anything else. Hoodie legislatures fix them, and tlml is what makes them a tax. Look to the men who want to go to the legislature and look to the men who rant tu go to the convention. CIIPIR, the new dwarf sweet pea, the greatest novelty of theseason.
