The object is to organized agriculture and furnish Refuge. Where members of the order Are forced out of employment in the cities they can to supported without exp Jensco to the order. Organized labor in Chicago is push ing the eight hour movement by circulars to employers and others concerned asking questions bearing on the Point. Already there has been at Many places in the country an acceptance of the eight hour plan and already its advocacy has had the effect to Cut Down Long working hours in Many trades. To believe in the final Success of this movement but it will come slowly or at least by detail and the great Factor in it is patience.

Master Workman Powderly has proven himself in the labor troubles As the Coole it head among them All either of workingmen or capitalists. He recognizes what every Man must recognize that no degree of organized Power can accomplish Radical changes in Valuer in methods or in conditions affecting Trade at a leap. What is done n us to done gradually. The world must be taken As it is and changes made in evil tendencies gradually but persevering by with Juitt enough of Progress to accomplish Good results without introducing elements of confusion either with their own or with employers interests.

At the time of the horrible deed Cale was strongly suspected of the crime arrested and tried but there being no a it roof against him he was released and not until the murderer saw he was going to die did he confess or make known the crime. Another party was strongly Imi located with Cale and it is said that when he used to get drunk Cale would always take Charnic of him lest he might let the secret the above item appeared in the Connersville six Ami Iier of last week. We were greatly surprised to see such startling news in print. We have every possible Means to ascertain the truth of the matter and find there is not a word of truth in it.

On s sturday last the painters at the Mcfarlain Carriage works demanded an increase in their wages. The demand was allowed them save one a Thomas Kline whom they refused. Monday morning Twenty two of the men refused to work on the ground of their refusal. Kline has the reputation of doing More work by far than any hero is something that Oliver p. Morton once said to the United states Senate on a question that is of much importance now Quot i belie e it is a True principle and that political parties can Only be managed successfully upon the principle that where the party in Power have the right to remove those who Are opposed to them in principle and to place in Power those who Are equally Good and hone."5t, but agree with Cheju in political principles Itiat Power shall be exercised. I think that other things being equal it is right to make such changes. I believe that it is proper that the of this nation should have his subordinate officers in Harmony with himself in political opinion. Not Only his Cabinet but those in responsible positions other things being equal should be men who agree with him in his general line of then speaking of the act 18g7 particularly of which he was seeking to Aid the repeal he says Quot it makes the president a common informer. That is the character in which it places him that of a common informer to inform the Senate in regard to the delinquencies Tho Inteli Cienci ii or corruption of an officer and the Senate is then to proceed to the trial. It puts him in a position that is not honorable to his High character and one in which he should Nevor be cd in memorial.

The thirty three years of his life following were spent within the i orders of the county and he died marchls8 i on his farm in Columbia township after a Long and painful illness. For a Man who was never known in Public life so called he had a remarkable acquaintance. He was known in All parts of the county for his generous anal cities for his cheerful genial manners and for his enthusiastic Devotion to the political party which to him Best represented the Liberty and Protection pledged by the stars and stripes. His enthusiasm was intelligent. His democratic Faith was supported by jigs constant Reading of political literature and he probably spent More of his own Means in circulating party papers among his neighbors than any other Man in the county. He Laboured for his party faithfully const Kintly through Long years of discouraging defeat and personal danger not from any Hope or wish for selfish Reward but because that was patriotism to his Liberty Loving unconquerable Irish soul. He had his faults and he always frankly confessed them but meanness was not in his nature. His political opponents testify that through the a hundreds of election Day struggles at the polls in which he participated he maintained a sense of Lionor tiit would have graced a courtier.
