The frequent fail Nies Afao of died a Ngi Banks throughout the country to say Noth ingot the failures in our own it a Tyr Haye called Public attention generally to this institutions and it is needless b class of institutions and to say that they have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. The Yery title has proved to be a Misnomer instead of savings Banks it would be eminently proper to Call them losing Banks so Many having lost their Little All by confiding therein. J be poor of Indianapolis have had a most bitter experience with its two savings Banks. We were told that depositors would not lose anything in m the failure of the first that went up the flume Over a year ago and yet to Day one fourth of the deposits therein remain unpaid and the depositors have in All probability received All they Ever will receive from this particular Bank. It remains to be seen How col. John w. Ray s savings Bank that failed in the lace of the holidays will pan out. Some of the depositors have received their 25 per cent. They Are promised More in the Remote future but hey were promised principal with interest when they confided their Money into col. Ray s hands. They now have to be contented with promises and promises you know Are exceedingly cheap. One of the worst things about this failure was the making of col. Ray the received for the Bank. He engineered the Bank into its present . He is a debtor to the depositors and no debtor should be made his own Assignee. We do not say that there has been any particular crookedness in connection with this savings Bank but if there has been it will hardly Ever reach the surface a banker would hardly go to the trouble to expose himself. Common sense would have dictated that some one other than col. John w. Ray although he May have the piety of a Saint should have been selected to have wound up the affairs of the Indianapolis savings Bank. The Washington capital has recently published a capital article on sayings Banks the publication of which in this connection is eminently proper our readers can and no doubt will make their own application the late financial embarrassment of the Catholic Church at Cincinnati together Frith the general collapse of the Savinis Banks Over the country is Call log the attention of the Public to the subject of the better Way to keep Money. The Small earnings of the labourers amount in the aggregate to a Large sum the loss of which is doubly deplorable. It not Only creates wide spread distress but is fatal t that Economy of which we have so Little. As a people and yet need so much. The failure of the freedmen s Bank at Washington i j which had been deposited so Many millions of the earnings of a helpless sort of people did More harm to the coloured race South than All the White leagues or Ink Lulea Ever organized. It discouraged Money get ilog and that sense of responsibility so necessary to the training of the late slaves into be ing useful citizens.

Let these Short treasurers follow the honorable example of Jackson Landers. Fit a Man by the name of Hayes Hon Man living near Utica new York died on the 20tih, inst., aged size or six years. He had not uttered two consecutive words for fifty years. Of in sixteen years of age he heard his father swear at a member of the family he then vowed that he would never speak again. He one time bruised one of his fingers and exclaimed Quot of Quot and seeing on. Another occasion a Snake crawling Over a ale no child he said Quot Seel Quot he was a olym student and died Worth 1,000, which he left to a Nephew with the injunction Quot be your Mouth a hut Quot be trouble attending this Effort at banking for the 0or is the same that accompanies every Effort that Las in design More Benevolence than business and of course ends la More business than Benevolence. A few men organize themselves into a corporation under some taking title As a a Vlam Bank. A lofty room with a Marble counter Bend some costly plate Glass Over which presides a gentleman who for a Hundred and fifty dollars per month gives the air of a St. Paul the manner of a Turve drop and a system of bookkeeping that is a Model of neatness and obscurity. The whole affair is based upon Christian impulses and principles including the Marble counter the plate Glass and the immaculate cashier. And yet there is not one of the promoters of this scheme if called upon by the Savior to sell All he had and give the proceeds to the poor but would re Gard the proposition simply As preposterous. There Bre no men who do so Little real Charity As those who shirk the Wear and tear of emotions through organized systems of Relief. They really Purchase exemption from Charity and pay very Little for the exemption. At the great Day when god Calls them to account for Ribeir misdeeds on Earth they will be amazed to find that Charity had its virtue in the giving and not in the help Given. It is like prayer that purifies the heart and strengthens the better purposes Only in the Earnest note Ravoe. There Are no men so selfish As those who cover their religion with respectability and mix their business with assertions of pious intent that is always a lie when not an impulse. The Batter Way is to obey the Behest of our Savior and Render unto Caesar the things that Are Ceasar a and unto the Loid the things that Are the lord s. In other words keep your banking and your bus Ness separate and distinct. The Short term be publican candidate. It seems that the Hon. Godlove s. Orth improves with age like old wine. He must be a far better Man now than he waa two years ago when he was not deemed worthy to run on the Republican ticket for governor and had to make room for Gen. Ben Harrison the son of his Grandfather. But the old Admiral of the ram Hornet has been elected to Congress since then. Like John Barleycorn it would seem that he could not be kept Down. He arose to the surface again and the republicans like the toadies that a great Many of them Ai knuckled Down to him and gave him the Barren Honor of a nomination tor u. S. Senator for the Short term. If Godlove 8. Orth was not honest enough As their candidate for governor How could he be honest enough for their candidate for u. S. Senator which la locked upon As a higher office than that of gov Emot Godlove s. Orth is a tainted piece of humanity. Whatever the facts Are in the charges against him of dealing in venezuelan Bonds using his position As minister to Feather his own nest put Money in his purse there is one thing that cannot be gainsaid he is under the ban suspicion haunts him like a guilty thing and although he May be As Chaste As ice and pure As Snow calumny is still attached to him and nine out of Levery ten men who know anything about the venezuelan business believe that his hands have touched pitch and been defiled. The republicans certainly did themselves no Honor in selecting this Man As their candidate for u. S. Senator even it it was for the Short term. It will be remembered that during the gubernatorial Campaign or. Orth had set an evening apart in the City in which he was to explain All about the venezuelan muddle. He never fulfilled his engagement and his resignation As a candidate Lor governor followed either hard upon the evening fixed for the explanation or it preceded it but a few Days we have forgotten which. We to know however that the Man waa considered disgraced and we confess to being surprised when notwithstanding we thought Chat he was quite quite Down Quot we Learned of his election to Congress and to Cap the Climax his selection by the republicans of the legislature As their candidate for the Short term As u. S. Senator. It is said that whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad. They must certainly have made mad the Republican legis tors of Indiana. As if there was no Republican in All the state who had no pitch on his hands whose garments were not free from the smell of hell fire and Brimstone we Are glad that there was one Man at least of All the assembled Republican Wisdom of the state who had the courage and the manhood to decline voting for the Hon. Godlove s. Orth for u. S. Senator. He May be rated As a shooting Start but of one thing rest assured the Hon. I Jor Jonathan w. Gordon can never be cajun red brow beaten or How do the county commissioners like the Way they were scooped by Faut he s a Little too Sharp for them. The news has got it it wants the legislature to make a clean sweep of the fee business by cutting Down the isee lust one Hali what they Are at present. Here s Wisdom for you a seventy five thousand Dollar new jail is talked of by the county commissioners. Like the new two million Dollar court House the estimate might be comparatively email but the Cost run into the hundreds of thousands. A Parrot nosed ferret named Fant did ferret and ferret and Pant it came c it of its Hole it saying Quot Blesa my dear Aorl but game around Here s mighty cant Han Way has refunded the commission of five Hundred and fifty dollars Ali ice he charged the county for collecting brokers licenses. Better late than never. But who did the commissioners Ever allow the bill7 Echo answers who ? the bar association having placed the boarding of prisoners by the Sherifi at thirty cents per Day the news improves thereon recommending Twenty five cents As the Price. We believe the sheriff now receives sixty cents. The news is a great Eyeler. Sex governor Hendricks arrived Home from Washington in the Early part of the week. The governor thinks matters have come to a strange pass when a citizen cannot leave Home without the entire press of the country making remarks about him. Sargeant happen Hans the weather Man has been called to Detroit. He is a genial gentleman and we wish him Prosperity wherever his lot May be Oast. Edward Lloyd late of san Francisco now has charge of the signal service station of this City. Hope hell give the mild screw a turn or two. At a Temperance meeting at St. Patrick s Hall on last sunday evening or. Ross the orator of the evening stated that there were 450 saloons in this City and that no decent Man would enter one. Or. Ross erred in Bis figures to the amount of 200, there being 260 saloons in the City. His error in regard to the other statement is not Worth while to comment upon. He was Ait Tang by the fire with Marier and toward her every moment he Drew higher. A till her chair i j interpose when he bit her on the nose they la be married if Coal does t go up higher of course the news commends senator Streight s Bill to protect the citizens of the state from empiricism. The news takes every thing straight even to its Medicine. It wants the Standard of the medical profession elevated whatever that May be. You May be sure if there is a monopoly the news will always favor it As against the a Ople. This is its chief Stock in Trade. It and a monopoly of the Southern Park swindle you will recollect. The county commissioners in their great Wisdom refused to pay or. Wagner s Bill of 25 for attendance on w. H. Hiatt the Man who attempted to commit suicide in our new two million Dollar court House. We suppose they Are of the opinion that Wagner should have let the Man die or at least that the county cannot be charged for the saving of his life. We Are aft Aid there is not any great amount of humanity in the composition of these county Kings. It was reported on last saturday that the Rev. Father o Donaghue who it was known had suffered from a Hemor Hage was dead. Being universally beloved this report caused considerable excitement throughout the City. It was a great Relief when it a Assn sequently ascertained that the Good father was really getting better instead of haying passed to the land of the hereafter. We sincerely Hope that he May be spared to us for Many Long years to come. George h.

It is a sound company and managed correctly and in an economical manner. Poor people should thank god that the bitter cold weather did not continue they would no doubt have been made to pay an increased Price for their Coal had the weather not moderated. There is nothing like a warm spell to break up a Coal ring. The season is now so far advanced that the ring sters will hardly attempt to carry out their programme and treat us to a Coal famine. The thing can hardly be or. C. F.

And it seems that the trustees of the soldiers Home at Knightstown have been taking too much three Kings thereby meaning our county commissioners. They have forfeited their Ofa Oes and should now be in jail.

Campbell is an important witness in the induced by any Means whatever to vote for a Man.7or any office who he thinks has either sold his Birthright for a mess of Pottage or who has disc aimed his Leigh calling As a Public servant. The doomed Ken. Achey first heard of the Adverse decision of the supreme court thursday afternoon by seeing it in print. He was considerably Dos appointed but was quite Calm and did not cake on at All about it. His health has failed of late quite Mercep Tilly and he is very much depressed in spirits. It is said that his friends and relatives generally have about deserted him and that he complains of this More than aught else. He is now entirely he less but patient and docile As a child. His quiet manners and Ood behaviour have endeared him to the prison officials. Not one probably of whom but would be rejoiced were his sentence commuted to Inzaris Ozment for life. The argument before the supreme court in the Case of Guetig was heard yesterday to fore a full Bench. While there is life there is Hope and Guetig still had Hopes yesterday of saying his life. Merrick will probably die and make no sign. He says comparatively nothing being Busy with his own dark thoughts. He must be aware that he has but Little sync from any one. Triple murderer that he is How can he expect sympathy he has Little to Hope Crom the supreme court which will probably decide upon Bis Case to Day. The Roumal of yesterday said that the sheriff and his deputies had already memo Isnoel rehearsing for their fearful duties. Sheriff freshly will in person execution. Tate love homicide on the part of Tate corroborating As he does the testimony of Taylor. We should hardly think that Tate could afford to lose his evidence particularly when new and important witnesses Are being discovered for the prosecution. The pamphlet of the disgruntled architects has actually fallen still born no one appearing to take any notice of it. The Moun a Tain Laboured and brought Forth less than a mouse. These Fellows who cry Over spilt milk should hide their Heads for very shame. The legislator who Haa the matter in charge is reported As saying that Quot if there is anything to investigate it will be investigated if there in t the matter will be killed at we reckon it will be Quot killed at after two weeks of Yery intense thought the High joints concluded they had better pass the ordinance reducing the Coal dealers License from $25 to $2. The Only opposing joint was the Hon. Coburn. His constituents should make a note of this. Owing to some Blunder or other the ordinance does not go into effect until monday week. After this time we Hope we shall see numerous Coal Yards opened for the convenience of the general Public As any one desiring can engage in the Coal business on the payment of As a License fee. We had thought that we were doing j. M. Cumback the Drunken mail agent a Good turn when we appended to our notice of his downfall his own statement that he had been knocked Down by a Man instead of King alcohol but the ingrate in last saturday s Herald publishes a card reflecting on the people s editor which would Lead us to believe that he had not yet gotten Over his Jamboree. At any rate he is insensible to kindness and like a Viper would sting the hand that thought it was warming him into life. It s some Comfort to know that he was dropped from the service. It is really a pleasure to Deal with a Man like Dan Lemon the proprietor of the daily Market 151 West Washington Street. In the first place he Haa about the Best of every thing and everything you ask for. Then he treats All alike does not make fish of one and fish of another. And again he does not charge two prices for his goods. It makes no Odds to Dan Lemon either whether a purchaser has an order or desires to pay the grand Cash. He in t in mortal terror of an order like some people we know of and Don t get Huffy when one is presented together we can cheerfully commend Dan Lemon s daily Market to the Public As a Safe and excellent place at which to Lay in family supplies and we assure the readers of the people that this notice is not paid for. We give it because wet it believe that it is due to a Clever gentleman and a fair Salesman. The Fountain county aerolite had no foundation in fact. The whole thing was a miserable hoax perpetrated by some smart Alecks who might have been in better business. There was no such Man As Leonard Glover no aerolite nobody killed no nothing and the jokers Are no doubt Happy. And so the tragic missive did not come from another world alter All and or. Grover who As one of our papers stated was Quot a go fearing Man who had no enemies to dread whose life Haa been Calm and simple who had Joyed in the few homely pleasures that surrounded him and watched the seasons come and go in Sweet Contentment Quot was not dreaming of Happy hours in the impregnable past after All in fact there was t any or. Grover at All. No where else in the world Perham could such a hoax have been so successfully practice As in the capital of Lom. I it proposition for there is no need of this the a is As Plain As a Pike staff and a wayfaring Man though a fool need not err therein. Here is a Section of the Law governing county commissioners embodied in the fee Bill Section 15. The Board of county commissioners shall make no allowance not specially required by this act to any county auditor clerk sheriff or treasurer either directly or indirectly nor to any clerk Deputy Baiyi floor empty be of such officer nor shall they employ or authorise the employment of any Deputy Bailiff or clerk for such officer and for a violation of the prot Sions of this Section each member of such Board favouring the same shall be guilty of a Misdemeanour and on conviction shall be fined in any sum not less than double nor More than five times the amount of such allowance to which May be added imprisonment in the county jail for any period not More than sixty Days and the office of such commissioner shall be declared forfeited. Now the question simply arises. Have the commissioners violated the Law no one who has read the evidence in the Case recently before judge Elliott in which the commissioners and others were defendants will dare to say but that this Section has been grossly violated. E Ven if Fant was not a Deputy treasurer certainly Moriarty and Hanna were Deputy officers and the commissioners according to their own showing Al Lowed these gentlemen 25 per cent. On. The collections of taxes that they had ferreted out when the Law expressly states that no allowance shall be made to either auditor clerk sheriff or treasurer or clerk or Deputy of such. The Law allows the treasurer his per cent alone but does not allow of his employing any one and paying him for searching out taxpayers who have forgotten to return to the assessor All their property. There is no doubt of the fact but that Moriarty Hanna and Fant were Deputy county officers two of them at least if not the third being Deputy county treasurers and to these men the county commissioners made the allowance of 25 per cent for placing certain property on the assessor s Book which it was the duty alone of the treasurer and the auditor to place thereon. This they did with the Law plainly staring them in the face. They cannot plead ignorance. If they do they should resign As being unfit Lor their High positions. If they were a Law unto themselves and ignored the Law so plainly before them they should suffer the consequences and take their punishment like Little men. The very fact that treasurer Hanway has covered Back into the moneys he had drawn for the to deputies is proof Tive of the guilt of the Treasury re of his commissioners. Now let the prosecuting attorney do his duty. Here is a Chance to see of what stuff he is made let Liim have the Case of the county commissioners before the grand jury and let an indictment be found against them and let them be tried and if found guilty and we really see no help for it let them be punished according to Law which expressly says that they but Unur soned in shall not Only be fined the county jail and their offices be declared forfeited. A storing a theil on last wednesday morning officers Stein Hauer and Marshall arrested a strange Man at Payne and Solomon s auction rooms for stealing a valuable team of horses and Sleigh from Cooper amp co., of Chicago.

A Surprise masquerade was Given miss Campbell on last thursday evening. A party of Young Folk assembled at the Louse of a Friend and proceeded in Masse to miss Campbell s residence on North Alabama Street. The characters were generally picturesque and Well sustained. Misses Lod Thompson and Stella Terrell represented the two orphans Quot miss Minnie Fletcher was a charming Tambourine girl Austin Smith made a first class Darkey Clinton Hare was killing As the boy of the period and Harry Patterson and John Busby showed off As clowns. Indianapolis is utterly deficient in those delightfully Impromptu loitering places for ladies so popular in Eastern cities where Many a pleasant but unregistered hour is it spent. We know of no place in our City in which a Winter afternoon is More in Joab e than in the rooms of our Art school where the genial prof. Love and his Inte eating students most gracefully extend the Hospital ties of the reception room and take pains to show the wonderful Progress in the various branches made by the pupils. Amongst these we cannot refrain from particular zing the Quot stories told in Chalk Quot by the talented or. Hetherington whose cartoon in the people a few weeks since created so much sensation and amusement. On last thursday evening a delightful masquerade party was Given at the residence of mrs. Walter Corner of Pratt and Mississippi streets. A number of very elegant fancy costumes were present.

English the representative from Marlon and Shelby a Mitidi county indebtedness and tax Day b Ion Atlon county expenditures strictly upon an economical Cash basis. In its general outlines the Bill is similar to the Law passed by the last be la Ture in relation to indebtedness and taxation of this City which is now almost universally admitted to be one of the Best Laws for the citizen Ever enacted. The same safeguards around the coun fall to be of great Servole to our people. The Bill ought to pass. A news. As the Rich Man s odious tax Law passed by the last legislature did More to put the City Back in its previous Onward March to greatness than any other one thing and the lat the Bill prepared a counterpart of the net news assures us that the Bill prepared by English is a counterpart of the Rich s odious tax Law that has driven work or. English is Man s odious to Ingmen from our City by the Hundred because the City had nothing for them to do its hands being tied by this odious tax Law we sincerely Hope that the legislature will decline to pass the Bill which might More properly be called Quot a Bill to retard the grow rth and Prosperity of Marion coun and drive poor men from its it is in reality a Bill in favor of the Rich Maik dts his numerous town lots and Broad acres and against the poor Man who has to depend upon work to keep body and soul to Sether. With this Bill in Force it would be possible to enter upon any improvements however so greatly demanded and hence anything like Public work could not been aged in. It is a specious plea for cutting Jown the taxes of the Rich under the Guise of benefiting the Public generally. The City s hands Are tied so that it can give no work to the Mechanic and Labouring Man and now the Effort is being made to tie the hands of the county in a like manner As if both City and county were not Able to know and determine what each needed better than a congregation of grangers and residents of Small cities under the style and name of a state legislature. We sincerely Hope the Hon. English s Bill will be handsomely Defeated though All opposed to the growth and welfare of Marion county will no doubt vote for it. John a.
