that on the day of the reunion of the Fortysixth at this place we together had an interview with MrDNV Tomliuson in which he stated that Mr Owen had in his gift a ship wortlt that a man residing at Hammond wanted it and was to accept it with 81000 per annum turning Ibe lialance ovei to Crpt Blull if would accept it Mr Tmnlinsoa stilted to us that it was Mr Owens proposition and tbat it must be settled at once as Sir Owen was go ing to Mexico thit evening and would settle it before he started Capt Mull promptly rejected the pro position Respectfully 13 B McCosNEii A HARDY This statement at Messrs McConnell and Hardy is corroborated by the testi mony of Postmaster Tomlinaun who says be was authorized by W D Owen to make such a proposition to Capt Mull THAT RUMOR Abont the JScmoval of Hie Panhan dle Shops to Marion Marion Chronicle Considerable talk was indulged in upon the public square this morning over various reports floating around in reference to the removal of the Panhandle shops from Logansport to this city A member of the city council reported that the council had received a telegram from Superintendent C M Bennett aaying tbat he would arrive in the city on the 10 oclock tram from the west and requesting members of that body to meet him and confer about the proposed removal of the shops to thia city In response a numbei of gentle men wen at the train but Mr Bennett failed to arrive Later word was receiv ed that lie was unavoidably detained in Lognnsport and that he would come there within a few days Ever since the first prevalent rumors were started the public 1ms been anxiously inquir ng about tiio moving of the The Logdnsport papers arid people have been somewhat agitated over the mutter but deny the truth of the reports However it has long been known that the Panhandle folks were anxious shorten tke divisions between Julumbua and Chicago making Marion fie center of four divisions and the of ficials headquarters But the matter has been so frequently discussed and so lit tle has ever ronio of it that it is not 1Ucy that the Iogansport shops will ever be located in Marion The PiiEiros reporter called at Superin t indent Bennetts office today to if pos sible gain some points about the truth or f daily of the rumor but found Mr Ben nett out of the city Chief Clerk Graves had heard the rumor but that is ns far as his knowledge of the affair extends He says that while some changes may be made in the divisions in his opinion the shops will remain in Logausport The report is that Marion has offered thirty ncres of ground and will bear the expense of moving the shops besides furnishing free gas and water The ex tensive improvements that have bul recently been made to the plant serve to the report a fishy flavor Dan I know a man that will gauge this for and pay you the other Daniel Billy I could never look my friends in the face again if I went into such an as that Owens Hypocrisy Editors Owen on August last in congress made a speech which is now finding its way to all soldiers in this district The whole subject of the speech is in reference to pension legislation One particular thing done by e DemoJ cratic house distresses him greatly The arrearage act was repealed by congress in 1880 Mr Owens lamentations over this piece of wickedness is distressing to the ast degree In his speech ha aays And this is the reason the soldiers have not received arrears for ten years The writer here and now puts himself on record by saying that he has no fault to find with the Republican party so far as pensions are concerned According to lorporal Tanner the parly has not lived up to its promises but it must be remem bered that the promises were made iu the heat of campaigns and were very large ones Wo will admit that the Democrat made a great error in repealing this act but Mr Owen when he speaks tonight should be fair enough to tell ua just why his party with the undisputed power to do so did not during the last two years undo this great mischief Every one knows his party left this particular piece of lecislation just as it came from the hands of a Democratic Con greas If there is any consistency or fairness or honesty in Mr Owen he can censure his own party for grievous omissions as certainly as he can censure the other party for grievous commissions Mr Owen does not utter a word in be half of the veterans in either pirty of this district that is honest and reflects his true feelings There is every reason foi him disliking them Many of them are opposed to his political future They are deUroying his future anticipations They are openly supporting his opponent They are determined to defeat him anc will succeed to a certainty The veterans who are elements of danger to him are members of hia own party If he is beat en it will be by exsoldiers And yet his heart bleeds for them now Xot d op of that fluid oozed out for them when they needed his assistance years ago and many distrust his present pie tentions His actions are out joint with his words lie has dug his own political grave Sit libi leiralcvis Ex Soi DIEH I A j In 18S2 when Republican County Commissioner and Republican I
