The president, on the the 8th inst, annonnced, officially, the retirement of Gen. Sherman as commander-in-chief of the armies of the United States. Gov. Crittenden, of Missouri, would have the government spend every surplus dollar in the treasury in the improvement of tho Mississippi River. OUR CANDIDATE FOR STATE TREASURER. John N. Runyan, the One-Legged Soldier of Warsaw. The democratic papers are kicking vigorously against the proposition to have the Virginia riots investigated. They don't want to have '*the ways that are dark" of their party, brought to light. The Columbia City Post endeavors to show that England has been more prosperous under free trade than nnder protection. Under the mask of "a tariff for revenue" they illy conceal the deadly enemy of American labor, the doctrine of free trade. Congressman Steele, of Indiana, has secured the passage through the house of his bill to pay officers and enlisted men who served as officers, and who received no pay for such services on account of failure to be mastered as such, through no fault of theirs. Mb. Handler, chief of police of the city of La Fayette, has been suspended from office for drunkenness. Of late he has appeared on the streets of that city in a beastly «tate of intoxication. He is the individual who figured as defendant in the Gouoar-Handub libel suit about a year ago. The flood in the Ohio riv«r exceeds anything ever before known. Ou Taesday morning at Cincinnati the river was one foot higher than during the great flood of 1883, and had reached a height of 67 feet and 4 lichee above low water mark. Qnat destruction of property has • tf^*« place all along tiie river. Hi0 end is not yet as the water at OuMnnnati and pdnis below, was alill S THE APRIL ELECTIONS. In the selection at candidates for state as well as other offices, we believe that, everything else being equal, the preference should be given to the gallant men who fearlessly went forth to the field of battle in defense of the union of states and the old flag which was its emblem. Again, as between soldier candidates, we think the maimed and crippled hero is more desex'ving of recognition than those who were not so maimed or crippled, not that they displayed more patriotism, courage or love of country than the other, but because they were less fortunate than they. The republican party, have been mindful of the claims of the soldier in the past, and of their last state officers, Col. Wolfe, Dr. Hawn, and Capt. Hill were deserving soldiers. There may have been others, but these are readiJy recalled at this time. The north part of the state is certainly entitled to a candidate at the hands of the state convention, as the republican vote of this section is considerable, and has never been withheld when the candidates hailed from the central or southern part of the state. At the coming state convention on the 19th day of June, this part of the great state of Indiana will come forward in support of^ a soldier candidate for "treasurer of state in the person of John N. Runyan, of Warsaw, the one-legged soldier of the 74th, who ranks deservedly hi>*h with his soldier comrades, and as a citizen of intelligence and worth is the peer of any man in Indiana. He is a native of Kosciusko county, having been born in y/aisaw in 1846. At the opening of the var of the rebellion he enlisted in the 12th Ind. Inf., Oct. 13, 1861, although but 15 years old, and served with the regiment until it was mustered out in 1862. Immediately afterward he enlisted in the 74th regiment then forming, and was mustered as second sergeant, and rose rapidly to the rank of First Lieutenant of his company. He took part in the battles of Perry ville, Stone River, and those of tne Tullahoma campaign prior to the great battle of Chickamauga. In the latter battle his senior officers were killed or wounded and the command of the company devolved upon the youthful lieutenant The company went into the battle with forty-eight men, twenty-three of whom came out' unscathed. Lieut. Runyan was struck by a ball, but remained bravely at his post. He was engaged in the memorable battle of Mission Ridge and those of the Atlanta campaign. At Kenesaw Mountain, while storming the enemy's works at the head of a gallant band he was shot through the knee, and the limb had to be immediately amputated, thus ending his career as a soldier. Since then the limb has been re-amputated, and Mr. Runyan is compelled to hobble through life on crutches. He is now postmaster at Warsaw, and commander of Kosciusko Post No. 114, G. A. R. He is a staunch and true republican, and the re. publican party of the state would reflect honor upon itself, and fittingly recognize the claims of the soldier element in giving the nomination to the youthful hero of Chick amauga and of Kenesaw Mountain, Lieutenant John N. Runyan, of Warsaw, the one-legged soldier of the 74th. W^ith such men as this crippled hero to "stump" the state, the republican party cannot fail of success at the polLa in November. Sate and Comfortable Tbavelino. —The old and experienced traveler is generally well posted on the merits of all the different routes between the East and the West, and is well able to select the safe and comfortable line. This is not the case with the occasional traveler, or farmer moving west. To those we would say, take a through trunk line, one that runs through fast trains, and makes as few changes as possible, such as the Baltimore & Ohio, which runs solid trains for over a thousand miles, with no change for any class of p^^ngers. Every one is famished a seat in a first-class coach, which for comfort and elegance of finish cannot be surpassed by any road in the world. Tickets to all pmnts in the west can be purchased from the ^ents of the K & O. at as low rates as can be had over iuf«ct(»ror indirect lines. What Officers to be Chosen . this Spring. State Auditor Rice's Statement. In addition to the November elections this year at which presidential electors and State officers are to be chosen, there will be held, on the first Monday in April, an election to choose certain township officers for the transaction of township business, and the importance of this April election to the masses is of as much magnitude as that of a state election, as the officers to be chosen deal directly wfth matters of a local character in which all are interested. Your schools, your highways, and other local affairs are to be placed in the care of the men chosen then, and it is of the utmost importance that good men only are chosen for township officers. Auditor of state, Hon. James H. Rice explains the law in regard to the elections referred to, as follows : I'irst.—According to the provisions of section 146 (acts 1881, p 646) of the general jtax law, township assessors were to be elected at the general election in 1882 and every four years thereafter. This act was approved March 29, 1881. Standing alone this act would render it necessary to have elected assessors at the general November election of the present year. Such is the meaning to the term "general election" as therein employed. The recent constitutional amendment provided that the legislature may fix any other time at which township elections shall be held. In accordance with the provision of this amendment the legislature passed section 57 of the general election law (acts 1881, page 495) providing that on the first Monday in April, 1882, and every second year thereafter, there should be held an election for the purpose of electing justices of the peace, township trustees, assessors, constables and such other officers for the township as may be provided by the law. This act was approved April 1, 1881. Section 57, being the las't act in time of passage, repeals so much of section 106 as is inconsistent with its provisions. Therefore, assessors must be elected a^ the April election, 1884. Section 57 does not say how long they must serve, but'section 106 provides that they shall serve four years. This provision of the latter section is not repealed by section 57. At the best, it could only be claimed to be repealed by implication. Such a repeal is not favored. I think it follows that assessors will hold their offices four years from the date of their election, and until their successors are elected and qualified. The person elected assessor will be entitled to file his bond and enter upon the duties of his office ' at the expiration of ten days from the day of such election." Second.—The offices of justice of the peace are constitutional offices of four years; and where such offices will become vacant before the April election, 1884, there must be persons elected to fill the vacancies, who will hold their offices four years, and until their successors are elected and qualified. Third.—Township trustees must be elected at the coming April election- for every township in the state, because the term of office of every one of ^uch trustees will expire before the next general township election 1886. The trustees are, therefore, to be chosen next April. Fourth.—A person is .not eligible to such office more than four years in any period of six years. (See acts, 1877, p. 79). Those who are now serving ont their first term can be re-elected; those who are serving out their second term cannot be re/ elected. LEHER FROM INDIAN TERRITORI Pine Bluits, Indian Tebbitob February, 3, 1884. Ed. New Eba.—I shall endeavor in this letter to giVe yonr readers my ideas of the West in general, and the îùdian Tenntray in plurticnlar. I léft Baxter Springs in compimy with 11^. Bidiardson, one of the TJ. S. CMomiasioQerB, iSor the purpose of viewing thé beantiifni Ii^aa T^ tory. We drove over the prairie to Pine Blnffs, situated on the west bank of Spring River. This is a very high rock facing the river on the east, and is almost perpendicular for perhaps 150 or 200 feet In this rock is a cave with, two, and perhaps three rooma I only saw two. It is very dark in the second room It is with difficulty that the entrance is reached, as it is 100 feet above the water. The rock is flint, and from it you have a grand view of the river and the hills along the stream. There has been some cedar timber here, but it is all cut off now. The west bank of Spring River is lined with pine timber. On the eastora bank is a growth of timber rather small, and here the timber country begins, and, north and south, it looks like it had been set to a lin^ The river is about 300 feet wide and looks as though small steamers might navigate it The timbered country is rocky. To the wes^s one of the most sightly countries the Indians ever possessed. West of Pine Bluffs are to be seen thousands of sheep and cattle grazing over the country as far as the eye can reach. We then came te a strip of country from 15 to 20 miles across, to tho western line of Kansas, that is surveyed into sections or less, by the government, but nobody is permitted to settle on this land. There are but very few Indians here, yet I saw some, hunting. Now, why are white men not allowed to homestead these lands? The government has a farm here, cultivated for the Indians' support In the bend of Spring River is what is called a sqUaw farm. In this tract of land are, perhapS; 50 Indians and half-breeds. There are here thousands of acres of land as fine as you ever saw, and not a man to till or tread the soil, except cow-boys. Geese, ducks and chickens are plenty, but no game. Herding stock drives away the game. W^hy are not these lands sold and let them be settled up? Then there is the Oklahoma land—140,000 acres—on which the poor man is not allowed to settle. Before the poor man ever sees these lands they will be swallowed up by the speculators and R. R. grants. • A company now asks a grant of 30 miles wide to mine on. Here are 280,000 acres of land upon which the soldier and citizen are not permitted to locate, surveyed by the government and taken from the Indians, with only about 50 Indians all told on the tract. Soldiers, what do you think of this? This is a very wjym day. Some of this country is burned off, some is mowed and some pastured to death. There are some alkali lands here, but not much. The scenery here is beyond my ability to describe, as this is a rolling country. This is also a rich mining country—lead, coal and zinc. From Ft Scott to the corner of Kansas and east to the Mississippi, is timbered. But it is only used for building and fencing purposes. Coal is used for fuel as it is plenty and cheap. The herd law is in force and there is but little fencing done. The timber is oak, hickory, walnut, elm, ash, &c. A great portion of the Indian Territory is timbered with oak and pine. In the Territory you are governed by military law. You can lease land here only for a year at a time. Rent to mow is 25 cents per acre; to pasture cattle, 10 cents per month. There are thousands of cattle, sheep and hogs in this country. The Indians are anxious to get back to the lands they once possessed in other states. There are no swamps here and the streams all have rock bottoms—no mud in them. It looks as though there was nothing to make the country sickly. This is a good grass country, and some day will make the most delightful farming country in the world. * John F. Hunt. DR. CESSNA'S REPLY. The Elkhait Sentinel thinks it would take a dozen or two men like Gen. Logan to make a man equal to Fixz John Porteb. You are right, Bro. Nobton. You couldn't find jealousy enough in a hundred such Jpen as Gen. Logan to construct a man of the Pobteb stripe wsho would wilfully disobey the OTders of his commander in face of the enemy. All the whitewashing of a democratic cpi^ess or of dMUOoratic ' newspapena^^^^ pe obUt«rate the fact that PoiriiK die obeyed orders in the laoe enemy vid for met Salem, Ohio, Feb. 2, 1884 Ed. New Eba.—Through the politeness of a friend, your paper of Jan. 24, was forwarded me in which I see that a column and a half is devoted to a short communication of mine in the "Democrat," in which you do me, as well as the prohibition party of the state wrong, or at least,, the L S. C. T. U. and Grand Council. If you will look over their past actions you will see that at their meetings in 1882, they resolved to ask for submission only, and the republican party granted this. In the election of 1882, these organizations did give theii; support to the republican party as far as they could control the action of their members. Now, Mr. Editor, you know the result was that while a majority of the members of both houses were pledged for submission, we did not get it, nor even a vote on the main question in the senate. This is the reason the I. S. C. T. U. and G. C., at their meeting in 1883, resolved to support no candidate not in favor of prohibition, nor support any party unless it gave them a plank in its platform. Your party conceded us in 1882 all we then asked. Will you give us in 1884 what we now ask? Should you do this you would have a right to our support, and for one I am willing to give it, and the state prohibition organization to which I belong is so pledged. You quote from the South Bend Sun (Hon. C. L. Murray's paper) saying that all true temperance people ask is submission. Now this shows that neither you nor Mr. Murray have read the resolutions above referred to or you are trying to mislead the voters on this question; or, again, you may think that Mr. Murray and yourself, to gether with such as thtnk with you, are all the true temperance men in the state. But it so happens that neither of you to my knowledge, belongs to the state organizations nor contribute to their support If the last be true you must consider all who belong to those organizations false friends of temperance. Believeing you to be honest in your views, I trust you will give your readers the privilege of perusing my answer, as it is not written in personal defese, but rather in the cause we both profess to love. Respectfully, J. P. Cessna. N. B. Personally I am your friend, but on this great question I disagree with you very much, ior you ask us prohibition democrats to support your party without showing us the respect or consideration that our party shows the Whisky League. J. P. C, After all that has been said by Dr. Cessna in the above letter, the fact remains that before prohibition can be reached in this state, the question must be submitted to a vote of the people, and to such submission the republican party was heartily and honestly committed in 1882. If it should take the same stand in 1884, it would occupy precisely similw grounds with a prohibition party, if one were orga^iized. As a prohibition party in 1884 would add to the probability of success of a party that is pledged to the Whisky League, we cannot see what prohibitionist ex-pcct to gain by its organization. The republican party has taken a step or two in the right direction, and in so far is entitled to the good will of prohibitionists. The democratic party has taken a step backward and become the ally of the whisky power. Temperance men, it seems to us, could not hesitate in choosing between them.
