President Mckinley inaugural address delivered thursday is As follows ally so will have Early and Earnest attention. It will be my constant Endeavor to secure it by co operation with the other great commercial i it Owers of the world. Until that condition is realized when the parity Between our Gold and Silver Money Springs from and is supported by the relative value of the two metals the value of the Silver already coined and of that which May hereafter be coined must be kept constantly at Par with Gold by every resource at our command. The credit of the government the integrity of its currency and the inviolability of its obligations must be preserved. This was the commanding verdict of the Peaple and it will not be unheeded. E conomy in demanded. Quot Economy is demanded in every Branch of the government at All times but especially in periods like the present of depression in business and distress among the people. The severest Economy must be observed in All Public expenditures and extravagance stopped wherever it be found and prevented wherever in the future it May be developed. If the revenues Are to remain As now the Only Relief that can come must be from decreased expenditures. But the present must not become the permanent condition of the government. It has been our uniform practice to retire not increase our outstanding obligations and this i icy must again be resumed and vigorous quot fellow citizens in obedience to they enforced. Our revenues should al the will of the people and in their pros ays be Large enough to meet with ease ence by the authority vested in me by and promptness not Only our current this oath i assume the arduous and re needs and the principal and interest of Spon sible dues of president of the unit the Public debt but to make proper and de states relying on the support of my j Liberal provision for that most desert countrymen and invoking the guidance ing body of Public creditors the sol i e a of almighty god. Our Faith teaches and sailors and the orphans that there is no safer Reliance than upon who Are the pensioners of tha United the god of our fathers who has so sin states. Gul arly favored the american people in quot the government should not be per every National trial and who will not fitted to run behind or increase its debt forsake us so Long As we obey his com in times like the present. To provide Mand ments and walk humbly in his foot against this is the mandate of div the Steps. Certain and easy remedy for most of our quot the responsibilities of the High Trust financial difficulties. A deficiency is into which i have been called always of Evl table so Long As the expenditures of grave importance Are augmented by the prevailing business conditions entailing idleness upon willing labor and loss to useful enterprises. The country is suffering from Industrial disturbances from which speedy Relief must be had. Our financial system needs some revision our Money is All Good now but its value must not further be threatened. It should All be rat upon an enduring basis not subject to easy attack nor its stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the government quot the several forms of our paper Money offer in my judgment a constant Embar casament to the government. Therefore i Bellove it necessary to devise a system which without diminishing the circulating medium or offering a Premium for its contraction will present a remedy for those arrangements which temporary in their nature might Well in the year of our Prosperity have been displaced by Wiser provisions. With adequate Revenue secured but not until then can we enter upon such changes in our fiscal Laws As win while insuring safety and volume to our Money no longer impose upon the gov emment the necessity of maintain in so Large a Gold Reserve with to attendant and inevitable temptations to Spac Lauon. Most of our Flanc lallas Are tiie outgrowth of experience and trial and should not be amended without investigation and demonstration of the Wisdom of the proposed changes must l e both sure we Are right make haste slowly will approve a comm Mion.

Who win my Publio both on to the gov emment exceed its receipts. It can Only be met by Loans or an increased Revenue. While a Large Ann it Ial surplus of Revenue May invite waste and extravagance inadequate Revenue creates distrust and undermines Public and private credit. Neither should be encouraged. Between More Loans and More Revenue there ought to be but one opinion. We should have More Revenue and that without delay hindrance or postponement quot a surplus in the Treasury created by Loans is not a permanent or sate i it Liance. It will suffice while it lasts but it can not last Long while the outlays of the gov emment Are great than its receipts. As has been the Case amp ring the past two years. Nor must it be forgotten that however much such a ans May temporarily relieve the situation the government is still indebted for the amount of the Stu Plua thus accrued which it must ultimately pay while its ability to pay is not strengthened but weakened by a continued deficit. Loans Are imperative in great emergencies to preserve the gov emment or its credit but a failure to Supply needed Revenue in to mfg of peace tor the maintenance of either has no Mustif Mitlon. By venue from the Tariff. Quot the Liest Way for the government to maintain its credit is to pay As it goes not by resorting to Loans but by keeping out of debt through an adequate income secured by a system of taxation external or internal or both. It is the settled policy of the gov emment pursued from the beginning and Pra cured by us parties and administrations to raise the bulk of our Revenue from taxes upon foreign productions entering the United Ati tor Sale and con Sumpton.

To this policy we Are All of whatever party firmly bound by the voice of the people a a Power vastly More potential than the expression of any political platform. The Paramount duty of Congress is to Stop deficiencies by the restoration of that protective legislation which has always been the firmest prop of the Treasury. The passage of such a Law or Laws would strengthen the credit of the of Viincent both at Home and abroad so far toward stopping the Drain upon the Gold Reserve held for the redemption of our currency which has been heavy and Well nigh constant for several years. Quot in the revision of the Tariff Especial attention should be Given to the re enactment and Extension of the reciprocity principle of the Law of 1890, under which so great a stimulus was Given to our foreign Trade in new and advantageous markets for our surplus agricultural and marry fractured products. The Brief trial Given this legislation amply justifies a further Experiment and additional discretionary Power in the making of commercial treaties the end in View always to be the opening up of new markets for the products of our country by granting concessions to the products of other lands that we need and can not produce ourselves and which do not involve any loss of labor to our people but tend to increase their empi6yment. Must Bentora Prosperity. Quot the depression of the past four years has fallen with Especial severity upon the great body of toilers of the country and upon one More than the holders of Small farms. Agriculture has languished and labor suffered. The revival of manufacturing will be a Relief to both. No portion of our population is More devoted to the institutions of free gov emment nor More Loyal in their support while none bears More cheerfully or fully its proper share in the maintenance of the government or is better entitled to its Wise and Liberal care and Protection. Legislation helpful to the producer is beneficial to All. The depress condition of Industry on the farm and in the mine and factory has lessened the ability of the people to meet the demands upon them and they rightfully expect that not Only a system of Revenue shall be established that will secure the largest income with the least Burden but that every Means will be taken to decrease rather than increase our Public expenditures. Quot business conditions Are not the most promising. It will take time to restore the Prosperity of former years. If we can not promptly attain it we can resolutely turn our faces in that direction and Aid its rectum by Friendly legislation. However troublesome the situation May appear. Congress will not i am sure be found lacking in disposition or Alfi Lity to relieve it As far As legislation can do so. What Mast be done. Quot akm Allty of rights must prevail and our Laws to always and everywhere respected and obeyed. We May have failed in the discharge of our full duty As Clatl Sens of the great Republic but it is consoling and encouraging to Realise that free speech a free press free thought free schools the free and unmolested right of religious Liberty and worship and free and fair elections Are dearer and More universally enjoyed today than Ever before. These tia rants must be Sac redly in a served and wisely strengthened. The constituted authorities must be cheerfully and vigorously upheld. Lynch Ings must not be tolerated in a great and civilised country like the United states. Courts not mobs must execute the penalties 0< the Law. The pre station of Pia it llo order the right of discussion the tuition imposed up i the president tha duty of both its own execution and of the statutes enacted in pursuance of its provisions i Shai Endeavor carefully to carry them into effect. A Mie declaration of the party now restored to i wer has been in the past that of opposition to All combinations of capital organised in trusts or otherwise to control arbitrarily the condition of Trade among our citizens and it has sup ported such legislation As will prevent the execution of All schemes to oppress the people by undue charges on their supplies or by unjust rates for t he transportation of their products to Market this purpose will be steadily pursued both by the enforcement of the Laws now in existence and tace recommendation and support of such new statutes As May be necessary to carry it into of f 3ct. Cite f Ervilee by form. Quot reforms in the civil service must go on. But the changes should be real and genuine not perfunctory or prompted by a Seal in behalf of any party simply because it happens to be in Power. As a member of Congress i voted and spoke in favor of the present Law and i shall attempt its enforcement in the spirit in which it was enacted. The purpose in View was to secure the most efficient service of the Best men who would accept appointment under the gov emment retaining faithful and devoted Public servants in office but shielding none under the authority of any Rule or custom who Are info Clent incompetent or unworthy. The Best interests of the country demand this and the people heartily approve the Law wherever and whenever it has been thus administered. Oar Ifo Reiga Belat Ona. Quot it has been the policy of the United states since the foundation of the government to cultivate relations of peace and Amity with All the nations of the world and this accords with my Conception of our duty now. We have cherished the policy of non interference with the affairs of foreign gov Emmetts wisely inaugurated by Washington keeping ourselves free from entanglement either As allies or foes Content to leave undisturbed with them the settlement of their own Domestic concerns. It will be our aim to pursue a firm and dignified foreign policy which shall be just. Impartial Ever watchful of our National Honor and always insisting upon the enforcement of the lawful rights of american citizens everywhere. Our diplomacy should seek nothing More and accept nothing less than is due us. We want no wars of Conquest we must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. War should never be entered upon until every Agency of peace has failed peace is preferable to War in almost every contingency. Arbitration is the True method of settlement of International As Well As local or individual Gold kids. 8cott county mat tits a xviii the col Stock Bonanza. Love deadly Duel in Benton Conns Tyr Tolleston Clab indicted state it Emil Ladi Gold Scottsburg special mrs. Alice Jones of Lexington this county. Is having a solid Gold tooth made by Trouis Volle dentists the Metal of which was taken from Scott county Soli by the pan washing process. Samuel passwaters mrs. Jones s father and or. Rogers unearthed the precious Metal and it was presented to mrs. Jones who has preserved it in its original condition until recently when she decided to have it a tooth to take the place of one which had disappeared from a set. Very few people Are aware that there is any of the precious Metal in this Vicinity yet a Claisen of this county finds profitable employment in washing for it along the Beds of Small streams. The Metal obtained by this process is in the form of dust and tiny nuggets which owing to the presence of Silver. Is somewhat lighter than the Gold of California and Colorado. It is believed by Many that if diligent search were prosecuted by experienced Gold miners a very profitable find would Reward their efforts. The fact that these Small particles of the valuable Metal ooze from the Depths of a Stream is certainly evidence that Gold is somewhere hidden in the Interior of the Earth. However the Gold fever in this Vicinity is yet in its incipient state. Extra session of Congnha. Quot it has been the uniform practice of each president to avoid As far As possible the convening of Congress in extraordinary session. It is an example which under Ordinary circumstances and in the absence of a Public necessity is to be commended. But a failure to Convene the representatives of the people in Congress in extra session when it involves neglect of a Public duty places the responsibility of such neglect upon the executive himself. The condition of the Public Treasury As has been indicated demands the immediate consideration of Congress. It alone has the Power to provide revenues for the gov emment. Not to Convene it under such circumstances i can View in no other sense than the neglect of a Plain duty. I do not sympathize with the sentiment that Congress in session is dangerous to our general business interests. Quot there could be no better Timo to put the government upon a sound financial and economic basis than now. The people have quot Only recently voted that this should be done and nothing is More binding upon the agents of their will than the obligation of immediate action. It has always seemed to me that the postponement of the meeting of Congress until More than a year after it has been chosen deprived Congress too often of the inspiration of the popular will and the country of the corresponding benefits. It is evident therefore that to postpone action in the presence of so great a necessity would be unwise on the part of the executive because unjust to the interests of the people. We can approach the problem calmly and patriotically without fearing its effect upon an Early election. Our fellow citizens who May disagree with us upon the character of this legislation prefer to have the question settled now even against their pre conceived views and perhaps settled so reasonably As i Trust and believe it will be As to insure great permanence than to have further uncertainty menacing the vast and varied business interests of the United states. The president ii go Olasion. A tin conclusion i congratulate the Lantry Apon the fraternal spirit of the people and the manifestation of Good will everywhere so apparent. The recent election not Only most quot fortunately demonstrated the obliteration of sectional or geographical lines but to some extent also the prejudices which for years have distracted our councils and marred our True greatness As a nation. The Triumph of the people whose verdict is carried into effect today is not the Triumph of one Section nor wholly of one party but of All sections and All the people. The North or South no longer Divide on the old lines but upon principles and policies and in this fact surely every Lover of the country can find cause for True elicitation. Let us. Rejoice in and cultivate this spirit it is ennobling and will be both a Aln and Blessing to our to loved country. It will be my constant aim to do nothing and permit nothing be both again and Blessing to our be this growing sentiment of Unity and cooperation this revival of esteem and affiliation which now animates so Many thousands in both the old antagonistic sections but i shall cheerfully do every thing possible to promote and increase it. Quot let me again repeat the words of the oath administered by the chief Justice which in their resp Cuve spheres so far As applicable i Wotila have All my countrymen observe quot i will faithfully execute the office of the president of the United state and will to the Best of my ability preserve protect and defend the constr Turon of the United states quot this is the Oll Gatlon i have reverently taken before the lord most High. To keep it will be my single purpose my constant prayer and i shall confidently rely upon the forbearance and iii Rostance of All the people in the Dusci Large of my solemn in karst a fun. Or. B9npeok->0� poor Yoor s a a Lover a deadly Duel. An Earl Park Benton county special says John m. Chavers and Maurice Bradbury have for a year past been suitors for the hand of miss Alma Bidwell a very pretty Young woman residing in this place. On several occasions the men have met and quarrelled until so much bad blood developed that both have gone armed for the other. Tonight they met and fought a deadly Duel at close Range in the dark and Chavers is now dying while Bradbury has fled and is probably out of Benton county and safely hidden. Miss Bidwell was attending a dance at a Friend s House tonight having been escorted there by Young Bradbury. Chavers heard of this and he went to the House and demanded of miss Bidwell that he be allowed to escort her Home. She objected saying she had promised to go with Bradbury. This enraged Chavers and he declared he would fix his rival before morning. Accordingly after the dance he waited at a Comer near the Young woman s Home for Bradbury to return after bidding the girl Good a night. Bradbury was informed and started Home with his hand clasping his revolver. Suddenly Chavers faced him in the dark and both began firing. Chavers was shot in the right Arm and in the Abdomen and will die. Bradbury made his escape and has not yet been taken into custody. It is not known whether or not he is wounded. Tolleston club indicted. Crown Point special the grand jury wound up its investigation into the Tolleston gun club today and returned indictments against Barney Whitlock Alfred Taylor and the Blackburn Brothers. They Are the four watchmen who shot Down the Farmers on the club s premises some weeks ago. William Kun Nert the superintendent of the club grounds was also arrested and gave a. Bond of $2,500. The Bond of the other four in jail was also placed at that figure and they expect the officials to bail them out. Indictments were returned against members or Ine club presumably the officials but their names will not be made Public until the arrests Are made in Chicago where the members All reside. The trial will probably take place in some other county As the feeling is so Strong against the Tolleston club Here that the defendants will take a change of venue As far away from Lake county As possible.

Greensburg special today the Board of commissioners refused to Grant a License to five Saloon keepers to sell in a Quan failed to Vbk a Holty less than a quart for the reason they business in the township or City of Greensburg and if in the City the Ward was not designated. An Appeal was at once taken to the circuit court by the Saloon keepers. The commissioners based their ruling on the decision of judge Howard of the supreme court wherein he decided under the act of 1875 that demonstrators where liquor was to be sold in cities and towns should remonstrate by wards and not by townships or towns.

The cretan crisis is assuming a serious a it pet amp and May result in a general european War. A London Cable says advices received from Athens late last night indicate that the hellenic government will not comply with the demand of the Powers to evacuate the Island of Crete. At 4 o clock this afternoon the six Days granted by the Powers in their identical notes to the greek gov emment will expire and an answer must be made by that time. Yesterday the greek Cabinet discussed the answer at length and it was finally approved by King George. It is reported that the reply is a refusal to recall the greek Fleet and troops from Crete on the ground that the recall would be a signal for pillage incendiary so and murder. The Complete text of the note wiil not be known until it is presented to the ambassadors of the Powers at Athens. It is stated that in View of the contemplated negative reply. King George has sent orders to colonel Vassos commanding the greek forces in Crete to hold All the positions now occupied by him.

Been Imam cob Bupt attempt Cha bed. House committee appointed to investigate it. Speaker Pettit just before the House adjourned Friday afternoon alarmed the lobby by going Down upon the floor and offering a Resolution calling for the appointment of a committee to inquire into a report that a corrupt attempt had been made to secure a change in a Bill after it had been passed by the House. The Resolution was unanimously adopted and messes. Smith of Tippecanoe Canada and Patterson of Franklin were appointed to conduct the investigation. The speaker declined to make any statement in reference to the alleged Effort at corruption. He said that he did not know that the Story was True but it had been related to him and he Felt that it ought to be investigated immediately. Investigation showed that an Effort had been made to secure a change in the Bill relating to the Superior court for Lake Porter and Laporte counties commonly known about the legislature As the Hammond court Bill. The lobby from the Northwestern Corner of the state has been regarded As the most Peml Cious that has infested the legislature and members were not surprised to hear the charge that some member of it had attempted corruption. This court Bill As it passed the Senate conferred upon the Superior court jurisdiction concurrent with the circuit court except in probate cases. Opponents of the Bill have charged that an ulterior purpose of it is to have the county seat of Lake county removed from Crown Point to Hammond by giving to the Superior court which holds sessions at Hammond a jurisdiction equal to that of the circuit court of the county seat. In the House an Emen fitment proposed by or. Eichhorn was inserted taking away from the court Jurl dict on in quot cases involving the title to real this took the life out of the Bill and the Hammond lobbyists and those aiding and abetting them decided to have the amendment killed.

The a murderers ave the grip Walling makes another Appeal. Jackson and Walling were last week transferred to the Alexandria ky., jail for greater Security. They Are both suffering from the grip. The mothers of both of the condemned men Are with them and will remain with them until the Day of execution. The condition of neither one of the murderers is serious and their symptoms of grip Are attributed to the bad ventilation of the jail. Governor Bradley has issued orders for troops to be present at the hanging. Walling has addressed another letter to governor Bradley appealing for executive clemency on the ground that he had no motive like Scott Jackson in getting Pearl Bryan out of the Way. Every Effort possible is being made to have the sentence of Walling commuted to life imprisonment but it is generally believed he will hang Jackson. The markets. Indianapolis. March wheat. Corn quot.

Quot Are these your words and will you please explain them in some is Sim of your perhaps the context from which these words were clipped is the Only explanation needed.

But suppose the merchant a who employs them both wants some lift inst done in a moment of emergency wants some heavy or disagreeable service rendered who is called upon the Man or the woman the Man can do it and does do it the woman is out of the question. Take again the favorite Case of the other Side school teaching.
