Swift of this City who has been industriously lobbying the legislature and the governor against the application of this principle in the settlement of the Indianapolis Street railway question. All of which simply goes to show that Lucius b. Swift As we have remarked before is a very transparent Humbug. This however will be no news in this Community. Indianapolis has Long ceased to take Lucius b. Swift Sentinel. And Why single out Lucius Indianapolis is full of transparent humbugs. Their principal occupation is talking Reform and practising robbery. There is not a sincere Man in the whole conglomeration of humanity and it is manifestly unfair to ask Lucius b. Swift to Bear the odium of the commercial club and the Brilliant minds that Grace its membership. A sensible View. Thursday next the state Board of education will receive bids for arithmetic geographies and copy books to be used in the Public schools of the state for the next five years. Of the Indiana House of representatives has passed a Bill creating a Railroad commission to Piave general supervision of the enforcement of i Railroad Laws and the condition of Railroad property. We Hope the City Council will Call the Public meeting to discuss the natural Gas que Suun. As suggested by councilman Hosey on an evening when it will bar Fps the working people to attend. Saturday evening is not a proper evening for Pulitic meetings. Concerning the proposed North and South inter Urban electric Railroad the Waterloo press says Auburn business men have expressed fears that the building of an electric line to fort Wayne will injure their interests and ask that the terminus be at Garrett but if there is anything in the line for fort Wayne merchants they will to doubt see that Garrett is connected with their City. Electric roads Are bound to come and to oppose them on the grounds stated might be construed by the Public that local merchants were not dealing fair with their patrons. There is no reason Why Waterloo and Auburn merchants cannot sell cheaper than fort Wayne merchants when rents expense of living and other things Are considered. The Best drawing card for fort Wayne is that merchants carry larger stocks but most people can find All the Staples and luxuries they can pay for nearer Home and at equally As Good terms. The electric line would bring As much Trade As it would carry away and few people would desire to lose the time and expense of a trip to fort Wayne when they could do As Well at Home. We believe it a Safe proposition too to say that As Many fort Wayne people will visit Points on the line of an inter Urban Railroad in the course of thi Ysaias will visit this City so that the idea of an unfair Exchange is All nonsense. Fort Wayne would not profit by a system of railroads that would Empol Erish other communities and no line of communication was Ever established that did such a thing. The construction of electric railways the journal has not found a Republican outside of a narrow clique of politicians who does not condemn the via Benefit All communities will cheap proposed legislative interference with local government and very Many republicans openly declare the passage of the Foster amendments would do their party infinitely More harm than Good. France has now taken the Lead of this country in perfecting the electric locomotive. The scientific american of this week quotes from be Genie civil a description of a High Speed electric locomotive recently tested with Success by the Paris Lyons Mediterranean company on its line from Paris to Melun a distance of some this to Miles. The machine which is conspicuous by the absence of a smokestack boiler and a tender for Coal easily hauled a Load of 100 tons at a Speed of sixty Miles an hour and a Load of 147 tons at a Speed of Twenty seven Miles an hour and its designers declare that its capacity greatly exceeds this performance. In traffic rates will develop the resources of the country and put the markets within the reach of the Farmer As Well As the jobber. Of the Senate after March 4. The municipal Reform league met in this City last fall and the note of municipal Home Rule ran through All the proceedings. We believe that every person who addressed the meeting and who touched upon the matter at All insisted that one of the greatest evils to be overcome was the habit of legislative interference in the affairs of a municipality. Among those who took part in this convention was Lucius i. The new York world sums the senatorial situation up editorially As follows of the thirty senatorial seats that will be vacated on March 4, these six have not yet been filled Pennsylvania r. Nebraska r. Delaware r. I a d. Florida d. California r. Of the to Venty four remaining fourteen Are their own Suc Cassois , Hale. Lodge Burrows Davis Hanna Aldi Ich Proctor and Clark. Total 9. Democrats Money cock Ell Stewart Bate and Daniel. Total 5. The remaining ten eight republicans and two democrats Are men new to the Senate. Of them the two most conspicuous Are the oldest and the youngest de Pew of new York and Beveridge of Indiana. Both Hae won their Public reputations As orators. Both Are holding Federal for the first time. But while Depew is using the senator ship to round out and finish his Public career Beveridge is taking this his first office of any kind As the first step in his a Public career. Next to these and by a Long Way second is sex governor Culbertson of Texas successor to Roger q. Mills. He is not entirely Nev to National Public life arid brings with him a local reputation for vigor and for considerable Independence of character. Perhaps the next in importance is John Kean of new Jersey an sex member of the House a Trust lawyer and a fitting running mate for s senator Sewell. The fifth in rank so far As their qualities Are now known is Louis Mccomas of Maryland an sex member of the House and a Man of considerable Public capacity. Then there Are Quarles of Wisconsin and Mccumber of North Dakota lawyers with excellent local reputations with Only such Public experience As is to be had in the Arena of the state legislature. Last comes a group of three business men Scott of West Virginia Clarke of Montana and Foster of Washington. These have grown Rich in mining and lumbering and have decided that they Are Rich enough to be Able to afford such Quot fads Quot As yachts racing stables and i United states senator ships. Hanna will Welcome them All warmly including the so called Democrat Clarke. So far As can now be seen Beveridge is far and away the most or Ionising of the lot. He alone has great talents and indomitable and incessant Industry combined with youth. He alone is bound up with no clique and springing from the very bosom of the Plain people is free to hew out a career of Independent manhood. He has already shown that he has Strong convictions and the courage and the capacity and the earnestness so to express them that they have attracted National attention in an incredibly Short time. There will be one almost new senator judge Ross who is filling the unexpired term of the late senator Morrill of Vermont. But his great age Quot and extreme reticence forbid the expectation that he will attract Public attention in any marked degree. The Senate at present stands republicans 46 democrats 34 populists etc., 10. Assuming that the still vacant seats will be filled in accordance with the political complexions of the electing Legislatures the Senate after March 4 will stand republicans 55 democrats 27 populists etc., 8. If the Senate should be called together before the six unsettled senator ships Are settled the republicans would still have fifty one senators a Clear majority of eighteen Over democrats populists and Silve rites. Not in a Quarter of a Century has the Senate had such a weak minority such an overwhelmingly Strong majority. Of heard in Congress. Carl a Hdez Hon Obed.

Under the stars and stripes my children were born i am to die and they Are to live. But my faithful love for Republic does not forbid me to look Back upon the old fatherland with re Prential affection upon that great nation whose valor has written so Many pages of heroic pages of history and Liose thoughts like a fair shining Beacon Light has so brightly illuminated the world. I am profoundly grateful to those kind friends in the land of my birth who at this period of my life have so warmly remembered me. Nor can i fail to speak with Pride of those american citizens of German blood who hold their rank among the Best of our people by Industry their civic Virtues their conservative spirit and their self sacrificing patriotism which has drenched every american Battlefield with teutonic blood. It May Well be said of them that however warm their affection for their native land they have never permitted that affection to interfere with their duties As american citizens and least of All to seduce them into any design or desire to use their Power in american politics for foreign ends. And of the service they Are doing this Republic it will not be the least valuable that their presence on our soil helps to preserve that peace and Friendship Between the two nations Avrich happily has always existed to the Benefit and Honor of both and which of late such wicked attempts have been made to disturb without cause. May that peace and Friendship endure forever. And now the last word which May be fittingly uttered on an occasion like this. I have reached the age at which i May speak from experience and of the experiences of my Long Public activity i will give you the Best. If there is any Man among us who has lost Faith in democratic government in what Abrahams Lincoln called a government of the people for the people and by the people i am not that Man. You will look in vain for a people Tjit have achieved As much of Freedom of Progress of Well being and As the american people have under their institutions of democratic government.
