Secretary Gage announces in the Republican organs that the administration contemplates no Bond issues that in fact the government is not in need a of Money. There is a lesson for politicians in the elections monday and tuesday. The men who stood by the people against the monopolies were triumphantly elected. The medical review publishes the results of some interesting experiments made in the British army to test the the journal is sure that the people Are interested in the natural Gas controversy that it concerns them very materially what they pay for fuel and what they get when they pay for it in . At the a fleeting of the Council in committee of the whole tuesday night. I. Scheld twisted his colleagues because none of the people were there to sustain their protests because no Gas takers had complained to him. Perhaps the people have Good and sufficient reason for not putting their Trust in or. Scheid but his words ought to serve As a rebuke into the lobby of the Council chamber were crowded the healers of the natural Gas company to intimidate the members of the Council who Are disposed to do their duty. Are the people going to sit idly in their Homes acid let their interests go by default the necessity of the hour is the organization of the natural Gas takers of the City for Mutual Protection and it can be accomplished by holding a. Public meeting at the City Hall. In organization there is strength a Chance for an expression of the people and for the appointment of committees to enforce their rights while it is the sworn duty of the councilmen to promote and safeguard the welfare of the people they will not be particular about it unless the people Are unless they know what the people want. So under the natural Gas franchise the rates Are to be revised this year to go into effect the first of january next year. The democratic platform pledges every to revise the rates according to the letter and spirit of the franchise and the Man who violates that pledge will be publicly exec rated. But the people should organize. It will require a two thirds vote of the Council to reduce the rates and it is the duty of every citizen of fort Wayne to take an interest in a matter that concerns every Home in the City. We believe it right and proper to Call a Public meeting to quot invite men to and j dress the meeting who Are competent to talk upon the natural Gas question Ries in the Railroad shops in the offices and Call a meeting for next monday evening at the City Hall. Of the magnates disagree.

The whisky drinkers manifested More dash at first but generally in about four Days showed signs of weakness and fatigue those Given malt liquors displayed less dash at first but their endurance lasted somewhat longer while the abstainers improved daily in alertness and staying Powers. In the German army experiments Are being made with sugar which is claimed to have such great sustaining Powers that it is proposed to serve it As an extra ration when unusual fatigues Are to be borne. Ous but to seek no quarrel with any Man. Then we take away their weapons and just As we Are beginning to congratulate ourselves on reclaiming some men from barbarism. Or. Hall gets up and advises us to teach our sons to do what we have been endeavouring to teach the Savages to avoid. If there is any Good logical Arguna Tural Gas magnate Paul told the ment to be advanced for or. Hall s newspapers that the clause in the new contract reserving the right to Cut off Consumers t n five Days notice was inserted for the purpose of punishing people who stole Gas. Natural Gas magnate Bash declared at the City Hall tuesday night that or. Paul s declaration was premature that the purpose of the new clause was to put the company in a position to shut off a portion of the City next Winter. Now when the magnates clash the Safe ground for the consumer is to stand on his rights. Every Man who signs the company s new contract puts in its hand the Power to shut off his Gas next january when the lower schedule goes into Force. Let your rights rest on the old contract. It is bad enough. The new clause in the new contract gives the company the right to shut off your Gas without violating its franchise without danger of being called to account by the courts. City attorney Shambaugh declares Contention it is concealed from the View of the average thoughtful Man. The whole training of Early childhood is an attempt to turn the child from the Savage instincts that Are Boris in it acid to reverse the procedure would be to turn our faces again to the Barbaric reply to experience.

To the editor of the journal referring to the communication from a experience quot in your sunday Issue of the journal with All respect to the Rev. P. J. Rico As a minister of the gospel i do not think he is advancing the cause of the Christian religion by his attacks on other denominations. These attacks Are futile and unavailing As catholicism methodism presbyterianism and the other quot isms quot will endure to the end of time. It is certainly a waste of time As there Are so Many other ways in which a minister of the gospel could employ his time to better advantage. One would think from the stand the Rev. Rice takes that his Church is the Church and that All other churches Are iii in Rel ass Sims Fot Sis quot the present mrs. Pinkham s experience in treating female ills is up aral ing entirely too much As All churches Are Lelend for years she worked Side by Side with mrs. Lydia e.

I Ven if their beliefs do not quite coincide stand on your rights. The journal will with your own. Guarantee the company will not turn i according to the Rev. Rice everyone off your Gas for refusing to sign the new contract and the journal is ready to Back its opinions in the teachers association. Pianos Are endorsed Jujj by the most eminent be ii artists of the Day. By pianos Excel in last a ing and staying in tune qualities. Pianos in All the late styles and different Woods can be seen at our retail Ware Ronns 120 Calhoun St. Pianos Are guaranteed by a company composed of some of our leading and Best known citizens. Pianos have attained a prominence with the music Trade and musicians that stamp them As instruments of the highest Quality. The Are a few facts bearing upon the annual meeting of the teachers association a which convened in this City last week a that should be borne in mind by the people in Genei Al. One is the Large number of people which attends next to the largest in fact of any gathering of its kind in the country. In spite of the seven e storm which accompanied the gathering Here Over two thousand teachers were present and the number of other people who attended from the surrounding towns attracted by the Opportunity of i half rates on All railroads can hardly be estimated. It is True however that there would have been Many More visitors in the City than there were had the weather been More propitious for travelling. As it was the sum of Money left in fort Wayne As a remembrance of the Northern Indiana teachers association must have been near if it did not exceed $20,000. The average visitor must have expended nearly ten dollars during his stay and while a few perhaps paid merely their Board at a private House at a Dollar a Day there were Many who paid hotel Bills of far greater amount and hundreds who visited the stores and made purchases. Besides such outlay in expenses the Street car company also came in for a generous share of the receipts for cars were crowded both Day and evening. Then there were the local expenses of the committee of arrangements much of which accrued directly to the City. The expenses of the convention reached the sum of $905.84, of which $425.00 was paid prof. Brumbach and or. Stanley Hall for their lectures. The committee deserves much credit for so economically handling the affair As its Enron ity necessarily entailed great expense. Next year the association will meet in Logansport and it would be Well for fort Wayne to consider the proposition of inviting the teachers Here the following year. The smaller towns find it almost impossible to handle the numbers of people who attend. Fort Wayne can do it comfortably. She would find it an easier matter another time than it was this and the amount of Money thus deposited in the City for the members of the association must pay their individual expenses makes the consideration of having fort Wayne appointed the permanent place for the association to meet worthy of serious consideration. To the Rev. Should believe As he does with regard to the meaning of the Bible. Following out tins line of reasoning a Little further everyone that does not believe As he does a and belong to the Christian Church is lost. In other words the Rev. Rice s in Lein relation of the meaning of the Bible is the Only Correct one and every one outside his Church is wrong. This assume tif a of infallibility and the attributes of the infinite is certainly More than Christ expected of any mortal Man. Just think of the catholics. Methodists presbyterians and members of other churches with the exception of the Christian Church who have been lost and will be lost in the future because they have misconstrued the meaning of the Bible i does this sound reasonable does any person really think that when a Man accepts Christ and follows his teachings to the Best of his mental resources and is baptized Vith the holy spirit and not by water that he w ill be lost when his soul enters the portals of the future i think not. It is possible that some of us Are wrong but i do not believe it is for mortal Man to judge which one of us it is. s sons protest against libels the fatherland.

The meeting was Well attended and much interest was Manifest. Or. Theodore Lange managing editor of the Freie Presse was chosen to preside and or. Anselm Fuelber of the Staats Zeitung acted As Secretary. Or. Lange in his address denounced the Effort to create in this country a feeling of hatred towards Germany which had always been Friendly to America and against germans who have been the country s most Loyal citizens either in peace or in War. Or. Lange created something of a sensation when he declared that the Spanish War while ostensibly undertaken in the cause of humanity was really based on Creed. It was the contractors who looked for fat returns for supplying War munitions and provisions who stirred up the feeling against Spain and by playing upon the patriotism of the people bringing on a War which had fulfilled their expectations. Or Lange also referred to the pending dispute Over the samoan question and declared that this question would be amicably settled and that it would prove Germany s Friendly feeling toward the United states. Or. John Suelzer read the address which was delivered at the Chicago mass meeting of germans by the Rev. Heldtmann two weeks ago. Both the address and the Reading were warmly applauded. It was decided to have a mass meeting of citizens called to declare Public sentiment on the question and the chairman was authorized to appoint a committee to effect the necessary arrangements. Chairman Lange appointed the following Charles Scheiman George Motz ear would feed their minds on blood curdling tales cultivate their tempers in order that they might get ample exercise lighting and hold them in Check when necessary by brute Force and the fear of physical pain.
