DEMOCRACY1 AND FEW FACTS 'AND BOUND OVER IN SERIES WITH TOLEDO, History Puts (he Former on Record as Plainly as a Written Wayne Oil Men Will Be Interested in the Proposed Changes. MOSTI-EUER, Ind., June The oil perators of the Indiana field arc a great fisht for their rights ajriiinst he great monopoly, the Standard Oil ompany. This company controls the price nf the product in the state, and hey pay just what they wish for ii, lid if the operator wants more then hey give him a, chance to disconnect lis wells from their lines. When he akes his oil from them then he has no ne to sell his product to, as the Man-lattan Oil company has all the produc-ion that they can safely handle. At he present time the operator who has production must get on his knees to he big concern, but this will not last very ling, as the new pipe line to be built by the Cudahy Bros, and others of Chicago will give the Standard a. hard pull. The building of the new Hue will ompel the present pipe line company o advance the price of the product to uch a price that the oil operator can make a few cents on his investment. It afees considerable money to operate for oil and keep it up, and the man who puts his cash into the business is not doing it for fun. Today the product of his state is worth more per barrel to he Standard Oil company than the asteru product is, as there are more bi-produot to the oil, and that is where he money part of the refining business s. Many are of the opinion that the eflned oil is where the money is, but uch is not the case, although there is money in refined, but nothing liki1 here is in the parftflne residuum and Other Bt-Prodiicta.

Against the UaseBall Team Set for Thursday Morning Put Under Probably Decide What Tenm Is to Occupy Second Place Dust. WATEUI.OO, Iowa, June ;tO. Bx-Gov. Boies returned yesterday afternoon county where immediately on his return Illinois. When asked if he hi-Handed Hoing to Chicagosoon he replied filial he had not determined whether he would attend the convention or not. ''At any he said. -'I do not know of any reason that should call me to Chicago this week." He further stated that he had made no arrangements for going to Chicago at any time during the convention.' As to .what were his plans for the campaign he did not care to say. He said that he had been out on hi3 farm for several days, and on his return to the city had found a large number of telegrams and letters awaiting him, but he had not had time to look the situation over, and knew nothing in regard to the fight except what he had read in the papers. Mr. Boies met Judge Van Wagenen, who was on his way to Chicago, aud accompanied him to Manchester. Judge Van Wagenen is Mr. Boies' alternate delegate-at-large and is also in charge of the Boies bureau in Chicago. Neither 'would talk when questioned in regard to the situation, but Mr. Boies said that the object of the meeting was to talk matters over and decide what was best to be done at Chicago. Boles' Opinion of Whitney. During Governor Boies' absence in Gruudy county the- interview with Whitney was published, and on lits return hla attention was called to a telegram from the New York Herald asking his opinion in regard to the assertions made in it. He wired his reply as-follows: "Owing 10 my absence- from home I did not receive yours by wire until this -jnomenl. You say: 'The following is a statement of the positron of the democrats of New York, given oui by William 0. Whitney after consultation with Harrity, Brice. Cable and others.' Will you kindly wire at the Herald's expense your personal opinion of this statement, and why, in your judgment, ihe democrats of the south and west should insist on free silver although it results in splitting the party.? Then follows the interview of the Herald with Mr. Whitney, which has been published and read through the union. Mr. Whitney Is entirely right in his conclusion that there is no disposition .on the part of those who will represent the silver sentiment of the south and west in the Chicago convention to further discuss the matter at issue with men whoae views are diametrically opposed to tlnir own on the currency question. He s entirely correctMn his conclusion tnat it is now too late to aooomplish any practical results by a discussion of that character. "Throughout the south and west that discussion has been extended and thorough, and -the views expressed by Mr. Whitney have been put forward by many men who entertain them, and they have .been fully- considered and weighed, and after all this the judgment of an overwhelming majority of the party in these sections is evidenced by the class of delegates who have been chosen to represent it in the Chicago convention. Not one of these men can now disregard known sentiment of those who selected him without betraying the trust confided to him, and mt one of them in my judgment will ever do so. Mr. Whitney is entirely wrong In assuming that free silver democrats are forsaking the fundamental principles of democracy or that what he terms sound money democrats are defending these principles in their endeavor to commit their party to gold monometal-ism. No Abandonment of Principle. "Until the republican party met in St. a few days since, there was never aline written in a natioual platform of either of the great parties that justifies the claim that the one or the other of these parties was committee to that" doctrine. Over and over again the democratic party in national convention assembled put itself on record in the clearest and moat comprehensive language possible to use in favor ol bimetallism, in favor of the restoration of silver to- its. place in our financial system as standard money, and never for a moment in the congress of the United States has a majority or anything like a majority of the representatives of that party wavered in its devotion to the principle so clearly enunciated in the party platforms. To assume now that adherence to that principle ;s abandonment of an established doctrine of the party is to defy history and ignore the most plainly written o: all its declarations of policy. It is use less to claim that a tender of the goot offices of the party to secure an interna tional agreement for the free coinage of silver is the fulfillment of its pledges so often made in this respect. "To the sincere believer in bimetal ism for the United Slates an offer o this character is little If anything less than an unqualified violation of a sac ret pledge by a great political organization If this is all that Mr. Whitney, and those who think with him, can offer It will be vastly better that they offe nothing. When Mr. Whitney says the maintenance of our present, gold stand ard is essential to-. the preservation o our national cre J aglniw 1 Ji WILL Want to See Fair Play for is to be a meeting of the direc-ors of the Inter-state league at this afternoon. President 1'ow-rs called it for tlie purpose of seltliiuf i number of matters. One of these is he taking of definite action regarding he closing of the first season on .luly 5, and the starting of another on the day following. This step has been practically decided upon as all of tlit; astern clubs and Toledo have cast-their ballots for it in the mail vulc taken last veeh. In addition the question of the ivision of gale receipts of Sun-ay games comes up. Some of tlie western clubs want it made 40 per cent, or visiting clubs and CO jer cent. _ for tome clubs. At present the receipts jre divided equally. It is not probable any change will be made, as President Meyer Is satisfied with the present ar-angemcnt. Another matter is the putting of a quietus on ex-President Usch, of Sajrinaw. This man has been deposed by President Power, for his gross incapacity to handle the club w he Michigan city.' but hu refuses to be quelched and has appealed to the various club owners to uphold him. Phis, of course, will not be done. MUSIE CASE 11E9FA1UEH OP. There was it gather!

The property onsisted of 8800 in bank notes and in gold, which Ryman had kept oncealed in the lining of an old coat, n a letter to Sohnell he referred to the attar's kindness, and said he had been accused of many crimes, but was inno-ent of them all. He then narrated the circumstances hat made a hermit of him. He stated hat he was wrongly convicted of mur-er in Meade county, Kentucky, in 1868 nd guards started with him to the penitentiary at Frankfort. On the ourney he juained from the boat and t was supposed that he had been rowned. He made his'way to Indiana and was permitted to build a hut on Schnell's land, where he lived until his death.

There are now three places of meeting in the Trenton rook oil fields, the headqitar-ers being at ToledJ, Ohio, a branch in jirna, also one in Montpelier. Others be established as soon as a membership of 50 can be procured in a ilace. The outlook is in the near future f r ,he location of branches in Chicago. Findiay, Fostoria and Indianapolis, as the cities have a large number of operators, and it would be a good thing for any of the cities to have an association of this kind, as it brings capital with t. Mr. Preston B. Coss, the secretary of the main headquarters at Toledo, Ohio, has been hustling through the oil districts, and has met with the best of success in getting new members. This association will -branch olf into Kentucky and Tennessee as soon as the operation revives there. It is destined to become a stronger combine than the Producers and Refiners of Pennsylvania. In the Indiana oil field for the month of June there were 121 wells finished, of which 21 were worthless for oil. the balance showing a daily output of 22G5 barrels. This is a decrease of 21 in completed wells from the May report, six in dry holes and 280 barrels in new production. There are 128 wells drilling and 114 rigs up and ready for the drill. The average per well of the producers for the month Is 22f barrels a day each. Wells county leads with 42 wells completed, four dry holes, 900 barrels new production, 44 drilling wells and 2S rigs up. Blackford county for the month has a record of 33 completed wells, five dry holes. 500 barrels new production, 98 drilling wells and 21 rigs up. Jay county has to its credit 14 wells finished, one dry hole, 260 barrels nen production, 12 wells drilling and 10 rigs up. Adams county for the same period has nine completed wells, two dry holes, 120 barrels new production, eigh wells drilling and seven wells up ready for the drill.

Department Regrets It Cannot Provide a Ship for Ibc June 30, letters rom the secretary of the -navy have >een received by President Theodore C. Search of the National Association of ifanufacturers concerning the trip of American manufacturers to South America. Referring to the suggestion that a Jnited States' man-of-war should be placed at their disposal Secretary Her-lert expressed his regret that there is no ship in the navy Uiat has accommodations for so many persons on account of the cramped quarters of the officers and crews on board the modern war vessels. Secretary Herbertadds that the president is in full sympathy with the objects of the association and says the commanding officer of the naval force on the south Atlantic coast wil! render all the assistance in his for the majority of the convention? Heretofore it has been the custom of he Natioual Committee in naming his organization, to defer to the vishes of the majority of the conven-ion, especially if that majority were a arge one. It remains to be seen vhether the Executive Committee of the National Committee will act in this idea or not. Won't Allow Dictation. It is not to be expected that the silver men will allow a small portion of the convention to dictate the temporary organization! The temporary organiza-Liun is regarded as really far more important than the permanent. There will be a conference between some silver leaders and the executive committee which will show whether the two can get along" together pleasantly or not. The silver leaders have no desire to seek any undue advantage and hope there will he no friction or difficulty about the organization. There does not seem to be any apprehension of danger From Mr. Whitney's operations. His reported suggestion or prophecy of a bolt is regarded as not seriously made, as he is not a member of the convention. The friends of Boies, Bland and Teller have each opened Their Respective Headquarters. Senator Duboia is in charge of the n-terests of Senator Teller, and is very sanguine Teller will be nominated. The course of Governor Altgeld is looked on with much interest, as he doubtless have a great influence in shaping results. Judge McConnell, one of the leaders of the Illinois delegation, is very favor able to Mr. Teller. Some other very inliuential democrats wish McLean's nomination as the best, solution of the difficulty in gettinir an available man. Senator Jones is of opinion that the south mav be regarded as sure for free coinage candidate, that if a man can be found who can carry Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, victory will be assured There does nol seem to be any doub that the platform will be for silver severed in his wrist and the flow of blood was such that he nearly ex-pjred before before the hemmorrhage was staunched.
