While the United states shows an increased output for 1s9s, it is still second to the Transvaal. According to the latest figures the five leading Gold producing countries of 1s9s Are As follows Transvaal 173,476,600 United states $64,-300,000 Australia $61,480,763 Russia $25,136,994 Canada $14,190,00 of the daily news insists that the filipinos precipitated the Battle at Manila saturday night while it related in its telegraphic Story of the engagement that a poor Ginoi ant 2n.surgent who attempted to run the american lines with no More serious intention than to possibly get into the City was shot Down by the american guard and another insurgent wounded. Correspondents Bear testimony that the american troops have submitted to Many greater provocations without firing a gun still the killing of the insurgents May be perfectly right and proper but the attempt of the administration asses to prove that the filipinos precipitated the War will not be relished by the intelligent people of America who love fair play As much As they do their Flag because it is the Emblem of Honor and Good Faith. -0 beet sugar Bounty. Fifths was beet sugar. In ten years the importation of beet sugar has More than trebled while that of Cane sugar has increased but slightly in proportion. The movement to stimulate beet growing in Indiana by offering a Bounty has led to an examination into the condition of the Industry in several states and the efforts that have been made to encourage it by state Aid. There Are number of beet sugar factories in operation from new York to California and More building. Bounties Are paid in Nebraska Minnesota and Michigan. An attempt at Bounty legislation in Indiana has been Defeated and Bounty Bills Haie just been introduced in both branches of the Illinois legislature. In Michigan the new Bounty has caused a Large expansion of the Industry. In Nebraska the Industry is reported thriving but the Bounty Experiment not a Success. In Minnesota the Bounty will probably be continued two years longer. In Iowa the state is making experiments to determine whether sugar beet growing can be carried on with profit. Kansas has been found to lie outside the beet Belt. New York is endeavouring by legislation to establish the Industry permanently and factories have been built at Rome and Bingham ton. Of pulp and paper Trust. The total importation of sugar into the United states in the year 1897 was 2,459,453 tons and of this about two Pittsburg Post it is education by a Home object lesson that protectionist newspapers Are receiving from the Wood pulp and paper monopolies. Their extortion has been made possible by the Protection policy that has been forced on the country precisely As in the Case of tin plate wire sugar and dozens of other trusts that can be named that Are protected and maintained by excessive duties. In the memorial to the Canadian commission asking Relief in reciprocity arrangements with Canada submitted by the representatives of the newspaper interest it is shown that the International paper company a recently organized tru to has at its mercy every newspaper publication East of the Rocky mountains. The Stock of this monopoly capitalization $55,000,000 has been watered to the extent of $40,-000,000, according to the memorial since the Quot entire product of the combination could be duplicated with modern and better machinery at less Cost per Pound upon a capitalization of $15,000,000.&Quot american Consumers Are thus compelled to Bear the Burden of this excessive capitalization of $40,000,000 in older that the monopoly May thi Ive. While the Tariff enables the Trust to squeeze the newspaper publishers of the Quot United states it is Selling its surplus paper in successful Competition with european rivals in the open markets of the world. This is a Tariff iniquity that is practice in a great Many other Mattei s besides printing paper. The lumber Barons in the Northwest and the paper Trust threaten to defeat any reciprocity treaty that admits paper Wood or pulp at less rates of duty than now imposed. That will probably Block Canadian reciprocity to the great injury of the Coal mining and Many manufacturing interests. But there Are other evil consequences than those relating to books newspapers and magazines. As the situation stands american forests Are being rapidly stripped first of their full grown building lumber and next of every species of Wood that could be converted into pulp. If this policy could be reversed and building As Well As Cabinet lumber and Wood for pulp imported free of duty from Canada the result would be advantageous in Many respects. American forests would be spared the Export Trade in manufactures of lumber would be quickened and the Power of a Gigantic monopoly in Trade would be broken. -0-heard in Congress. Democratic issues. A Bill has been introduced in the new York legislature providing for a state income tax. This Bill is far Superior in principle to the National income tax provided by the Wilson Bill inasmuch As it reaches the incomes of Rich land monopolists and is graduated the rate increasing As the income increases. Speaking of this Bill the new York journal says Quot it is not Likely that a Republican legislature will pass a measure so just and so democratic As this but that does not affect the duty of democrats. Whenever and wherever a proposition appears to equalize the burdens of taxation and abolish the inf amies of the present system that crushes the weak and lets the Strong go free it should be Able to count on every democratic vote. Quot the Coggeshall Bill proposes to exempt incomes under $1,500, and to tax the excess Over that amount at the rate of one half of i per cent for the first $3,500, i per cent for the next $5,000, i 1-2 per cent for the next $10,000 thereafter. This gradation is based on a sound and scientific principle. Some limit should be set to the increase in the rate otherwise or. Rockefeller would be taxed about 500 per cent on his last $10,000 of income and would owe the state thirty or forty million dollars a year which he would have no visible Means of paying but that is a detail. Quot the plan of increasing the rate As the income a rows is recognized by financial authorities As the Only just one. It prevails in England and in other european countries in which finance is a science. Manifestly it is unfair to tax a thousand incomes of $1,000 each the support of a thousand families As High As one income of $1,000,000, out of which Only a single family has to be maintained. The surplus Over living expenses might be nothing in the one cases in the other it would be at least nine tenths of the whole Quot Why does Indiana wait for plutocratic new York to Lead in the just and equitable matter of a state income tax. Massachusetts and other states have an income tax and there is no reason Why Indiana should not follow their example. To prohibit the Sale of liquor in canteens and in immigrant stations and government buildings to the committee on alcoholic liquor traffic. Of the soldiers Home. A statement from or. Foster.

Editor journal a Man by the name of White publishes or causes to a published in the journal of a recent Date an attack upon the of the state soldiers Home at Lafayette of which 1 am one of the trustees. I believe this Man to be mentally unbalanced. Wjk is from Bluffton where he formerly. Was engaged in the Saloon business. Shortly after we admitted him. And his wife to the Home at Lafayette he attacked the sergeant of the Home in a desperate encounter he Cut open the sergeant s head with a Stone which he hurled at him. He has been a violent and disturbing element Ever since he was admitted and at the last meeting of the Board of trustees his Case was carefully inquired into and. As a result he was Dis honorable discharged. His wife not being Well he was allowed to remain at the Home a few Days he in the meantime Quot expressing his intention to refuse to leave the Home. While being thus temporarily cared for he went Down to the City of Lafayette with four other Kindred spirits and when returning to the Home in a Street ear got into a Drunken Row and riot in which ladies in the car were insulted and ten oried in a most scandalous Way. The City authorities arrested the entire gang and this Man White was tried and convicted in two cases one for riot and one of assault and Battery and was heavily fined. He was then made to at once leave the Home under penalty of arrest for trespass. He then came to fort Wayne and has been lying around Here Ever since. His record at Bluffton we find to have been of a most unsavoury character having been twelve times under indictment and convicted in six cases. It is just such characters As this Man White that when driven out of the Home seek to injure its Good name and bring its management into disrepute. The Board of trustees Are All men who saw Long service in the civil Wai and who Laboured for years to secure from the state an institution where their less fortunate comrades might be tenderly cared for in their declining years. Their labor has been one of self sacrificing Devotion to the interests of the Home which they have served without a cent of compensation. No defense of their management i take it is needed from the attacks of such men As or. White d. N. Foster. No sad Mcl double turreted sea going Monitor Monadnock opened fire from off a late and kept shelling the filipinos left flank while the other vessels shelled the enemy s right flank for several hours.

The tennesseans jointed the firing line at 10 o clock on sunday and assisted in capturing Santa Mesa. One of the most notable events of sunday s Woik driving the filipinos out of their strongholds at Paco by the Reserve a few companies of californians commanded by colonel Duboce. The main Road to the Vil Lage was lined by native huts full of filipino sharpshooters. After they had been firing upon general King and his staff killing a Driver and firing on an ambulance of the red Cross society. Colonel Duboce ordered the huts to the cleared and burned. The filipino concentrated in Paco Church and Convent where they made a determined stand in the upper stories. A platoon of californians stationed on a neighbouring Bridge maintained a hot fire on the filipinos but was unable to dislodge them. In the face of a terrific fusillade. Colonel Duboce and a few volunteers dashed into the Church scattered Coal Oil inside of it set fire to the Oil and i tired. In the meantime. Captain Dyer s Battery of the sixth artillery bombarded the Church dropping a dozen shells into the Tower and roof. Company l and part of company a of the californians Chai ged into the Church but were unable to ascend the single flight of Steps leading to the Story above. After the incendiaries had retired a company of the Idaho and the Washington guards stationed on either Side of the building picked off the filipinos As they were smoked out. Many of the rebels however escaped into the Brush in the rear of the Church. The americans captured fifty three of the rebels and during the fighting about the Chuich Twenty of the rebels were killed.

Gali Galan at 10 30, but Only one gun annoyed the. Americans to any appreciable extent a howitzer on the Road beyond Santa Mesa. The third artillery silenced the Gali Galan Battery by firing two guns simultaneously which was followed immediately by volleys from the infantry. At about Midnight there was a Lull in the firing lasting until 3 45 a. M., when the whole filipino line reopened fire.

The insurgents Aie an armed mob the dispatch adds incapable of government and Are angry with Admiral Dewey for seizing vessels flying filipino flags.
