The deeds of american soldiers in the i Philip pipes and the desperate charges made by British soldiers in South Anca form a Saicic Keiit answer to the As to whether the Advance of civilization tends to weaken the pii sical courage of the race. In Isis some of the hardest big Hting in c Ulia was done by ii tra civilized Meni Bej s of new Yorac s exclusive society circles. Civilization has not Only retained All tie courage quote of barbarism but it has added bravery of a her order the Quality we know As moral Conease.

The growth in population of Indiana and her capital City and the rapid development of her resources afford a Field in the opinion of the undersigned for a new daily paper. That growth has not been ephemeral but of a steady and permanent character which gives every reason to believe it will continue. Had it been predicted Twenty years ago that Indianapolis would reach present population before the end of the Century that Indiana would maintain such diversified industries and employ such an enormous capital that the state would make such Gigantic strides not Only in the accumulation of material wealth but in Art literature education civic Pride Good government and All the accessories of a High Type of civilization the prophecy would have been received with derision or at Best have been condemned by the assertion that the realization of such notions was Many years away. With this Radical change of circumstances with this teeming population throbbing with the spirit of Enterprise and full of aspirations for a larger life have come changed conditions. We Are longer an agricultural people of the West but a powerful Commonwealth armed with All the forces and beset by All the evils of a Complex civilization a mighty Factor i that great Middle West where the seat of Empire must remain for Many years. We Are in a state of transition and there Are Many problems to solve Many difficulties to meet and overcome if we Are to bring this fair land of Indiana to highest fruition and leave it to coming generations As a heritage of Happy Homes and of smiling plenty. Intelligence must be aroused patriotism must be developed morality must be fostered the Sanctity of Law must be enforced and government by the people for the people must be maintained in Ever increasing purity and Power. In this conflict there will be More potent Force than the Public press giving voice to the needs of the Day and the sentiment of the people. In such a Field and at such a time the press begins Mission which we fondly Hope will be True and beneficial. That there is a demand for it is demonstrated by the fact that it starts with More than thirty thousand subscribers an initial circulation unparalleled in the history of american newspapers. Primarily it must be a newspaper. That goes without saying. It has wares to sell and they must be Good wares or the Public will not buy. Of their Quality the Public will judge. We shall Only say that the press has the largest completes and most modern equipment of any paper in the state that it is manned by a Large Force of skilled and reputable assistants in every department that it employs the methods of business which Are up to Date and have successfully stood the test of trial that Means of collecting and handling news Are the Best obtainable and that we have every facility for making a first class newspaper. The result the Public will judge for itself. The press is owned and controlled by men who live Here and who have a vital interest in the Community. It is not exploited by foreign capitalists simply for the Money that May be made out of it. It has interest separate and aside from the interests of the people of Indiana and it has lesser ambition than to serve them worthily. The press has a High Ideal and it will try to keep that Ideal always before it. Its founders have an absolute Faith in the principle of popular government and believe that the Success of the Republic is but a faint Shadow of the benefits that will accrue to Quot the mighty millions yet to be Quot from the Rule of the people. The Genius of our nation will accomplish this if we pursue the same path Vith the same Devotion. There will be obstacles of yes. Terrible Straits innumerable trials in which All May seem lost to the discouraged tests which will Strain every Fibre and weaken every nerve without doubt. But the people will meet them and overcome them if they maintain the vigor and integrity of Saxon manhood facing the truth squarely and using honest common sense. The basis of All character is truth and As truth must be the Touchstone for the people so must it be for the Public press which voices the sentiments of that people. The founders of the press believe that it is the duty of a Nev paper to give the people the facts with As much accuracy As can be attained and let them be the makers of their own opinions and the judges of the circumstances under which they must act. This then is the platform of the press to strive to Tell the truth under All conditions to be honest with itself and with own thinking to discuss Public men and Public measures not dogmatically Quot As one having authority Quot but As Man to Man As one neighbor argues with another on a topic in which both have a common interest and both want settled rightly to have entangling alliances political favourites Hope of political Reward or of profit that does not come from legitimate business to treat All men and their varied opinions fairly to be Independent of influences however reputable in themselves that May create Bias or Blind the eyes to the Bast interests of the people and always to speak fearlessly. Our ambition is to establish a character for the press that shall make it respected and shall give it the influence that such character always compels. We repeat that this is a High Ideal. Quot aim for the Sun Quot said the philos Pher. We May not reach it. Doubtless we often shall fall Short of it. But All the same we shall uphold the Banner we fling out today through Good report and evil report in spite of discouragement and failure in spite of misunderstanding and misrepresentation. Life has Possession Worth considering above character. Character cannot exist without ideals and character must be hammered out in conflict and trial and though men fail they always and Ever Quot a May Rise on stepping stones of their dead selves to higher amp sizes. The newspaper world has an almost unerring instinct for the wishes of the Public. Following Public preference it is interesting to note the rapid trend of advanced american newspapers from the old Timber some Blanket sheets of nine and ten columns to the Page Down to the seven and even the sixth column size of pages. None of the great papers of Chicago Philadelphia new York or Boston now exceeds seven columns to the Page while the new York Herald which affects Superior artistic sense has adopted the six column size. A this is in deference to convenience in Reading not Only on pubic conveyances but also around the family Circle. Who has not experienced the fatigue attendant upon scanning the pages of even an eight column paper of course the size of the pages does not affect the total contents with the improved appliances for easily multiplying the pages. The Indianapolis press has adopted the seven column form now used by nearly All metropolitan journals although presses Are constructed for the right Cohins size should that Ever seem desirable. In regulating the number of pages the variety of news desired by the Public is Soj varied that the modern Ijasper must resemble the dinner menu of an american hotel where each guest selects what suits palate. In this first Issue the Public has been so Liberal with advertisements that we have been compelled to produce Many pages. The reception tendered to general Harrison last evening by the commercial club was a Graceful trib Tite to the most distinguished american now in private life. His recent sojourn abroad has brought to new honors and has Given to Many distinguished europeans with whom he came in Contact a higher Conception of american manhood. / a a Philadelphia s shame. It is difficult to see How the United states Senate can seat Matthew Stanley Quay in the face of the proof of ballot frauds brought out by the Philadelphia a North Ani Eriean. Peo Jyle have had a vague impression that the Quay machine in Penns Luvania indulges in corrupt methods but they were hardly prepared for anything so bold so astounding As the methods detailed by the North american. In Brief the Story is this the , before the last election employed an agent named Kirkland who joined some of Quad s followers in the department at Washington. Kirkland anti an tether named Cook were sent to Philadelphia and stationed by the machine in the thirteenth division of the seventh Ward of i Philadelphia. There they took the places of str tip men on the election boart and deposited 200 fraudulent ballots before the voting began. In order to keep tin records straight the s list had been padded with names of men not existing. Some names of residents not expected to Vole were cheeked Oft to account for fraudulent ballots and when some of these men appeared at the polling place they were Given Sample ballots afterwards thrown out. Kirkland had Pul a private Mark on fraudulent ballots and after he gave testimony in Cut air the Box was opened and statement was verified. The Quay machine Seiluns tie fairly , but what an univ iii Eom ment upon free government it is that such an abhorrent should be carried on on a big scale in one of tie most conspicuous Sentei a of american civilization in order to i ii a on investigation the news Majier avas compelled to keep it secret from the police and from All tie authorities of both the City and the county. Quot the Trail of the Serpent was Over Vliem All Quot and yet Philadelphia is full of people of Inteli Igei e and moral Worth.

H. V. Boynton. Special to i the Indianapolis press. Washington. Doc. 1�2.�?every Patriot is looking u the work of Congress with Bright expectations of Confidence.

It is believed there will be sup port not Boun led by party lines for the main propositions which the situation pm let than the executive ha.-, evolved. I and whip ii must be met and settled. There a general feeling that a War. I which was in every sense National to which All sections contributed equal , de Erves a treatment in settlement which shall Rise above parti sans iii or sectional ism. Since Congress adjourned there has been the completion of a such As Wiir under the one Ilag alone could have Brout jail the land. Political reconstruction has progressed rapidly and the reuniting of the a sections had become a Marvel to the Wurl i but thin was cold and weak beside the solid welding which the lie ats of War have accomplished. This fact is Clear to All .

Among the leading men in each party there Are widely differing views As to the policies which Shouchi be adopted in dealing with the Philipr nes and Cuba.

And mrs. at a state dinner at White receptions in the prescribed Calls upon the families of senators and members and generally at Large in the social requirements of Washington official life. _ Gen. Henderson has begun speaker ship in the firmest health. His friends Are rejoicing Over condition. The grit with Winch for thirty six years he has held up against War wounds of most serious and disco fiting nature will now prove a most important part of equipment for the Battles of the House. There is More popular member but it is a popularity which rests on unvarying and s Iuar dealing. It is therefore a popularity based primarily on respect while at the same , there is la a of comradeship and sociability. His friends expect Rule to Boas firm As that of speaker Reed but coupled with this they look for an administration which will freely give the House a voice to a greater degree than predecessor allowed. Pie will be in Accord with the administration within such limitations As the proper Independence of the legislative Branch imposes. He comes into office unfettered by the usual Load of pledges. His Campaign was As Short and at every Stop As decisive As the War with Spain. Before opponents realised that it was in Active Progress it was Over. Everybody is t be Friend of this Frank cordial open hearted firm and Manly Veteran. Everybody Ivi Shes Success at the opening of a new career full of Promise. There has never been an assembling of Congress More free from every Trace of co tement. But among All thoughtful members there is an undercurrent of deep feeling arising from a full appreciation of tie fact that this Congress stand i upon the threshold of an epoch in the life of the Republic the importance of which cannot be overestimated. The grave responsibilities of this new Day weigh heavily upon the minds of the leaders. There is genuine patriotic concern by Means bounded by party army men Are carefully studying English operations in South Africa. The want of British Success and More Espe i scially the apparently serious Lack of j preparation have caused general Aston i ashment. This has been intensified by the belief that since the Days of the Jameson raid the English War officials i have had the seizure of the Transvaal i constantly in mind waiting and even attempting to create an Opportunity. So Wien the Chance comes and the Lack of is painfully apparent the Vonder grows. I nde rating the enemy and overeating themselves seem to have been chief among the faults for which the Homes of England Are now paying so dearly. The i situation is regarded As in a military i sense most humiliating. The a of the fri moments u rather tie absence i of prompt and efficient movement to Ward the several Points of the Long be i beleaguered front seem to Point to a con i oltion of equipment and mobilization such As was developed in France at the i outbreak of the War with Germany. 1 from this situation it is most natural j for our own iii vials to turn with Salis faction to the recent manifestations of our own ability in Case of sudden and wholly unexpected War. With scarcely anything on hand with which to begin i military housekeeping within a very i few weeks More than a Quarter of million men were assembled and suf i Fly gently equipped to furnish Large armies ready for Active Field service. Invite a of the inseparable from st cd a Gigantic task the promptness an Ltd completeness of the work were beyond Praise. The movements by sea during the War with Spain were remarkable and these have now been exceeded by the work of the Fleecs which h Ive just finished exchanging armies in the midst of a Campaign on the other Side of the Earth. Unquestionably the English movements in South Africa Are throwing very interesting sidelights on our own operations in the War with Spain and furnishing abundant material for a Sharp revision of some of the Hasty and unjust conclusions which sensationalism forced on the country a year ago. No credence is Given Here to the cruel Story that maj. John i it Gan was shot by own men. Those what knew Hon in the Field before he started for Manila declared that whole bearing As an officer wits such to fully the report. To assumed duties with . His father s Fame was an Ever present incentive. He sought to follow father s methods and of emulate record. He Well knew that Gen. Logan was the idol of soldiers. The remotest thought Cut of maj. Logan would have been to ill treat men. Aside from All this the veterans of the civil War know that the last thing soldiers think of in Battle is to shoot their of ricers. If these Are Bravo under fire the fact that they Are unpopular or even hated is to it sight of in the supreme moment of Battle. It is an hour when soldiers keenly appreciate the value of courageous Oill cers and one baptism of fire together generally soldierly regard and respect to take the place of prejudice and even hate. The subject makes pertinent a few words in regard to the common sneers during the War with Spain Over what was the appointment of distinguished fathers sons. The Opportunity for close observation of Many of these Young officers during their stay in Camp Thomas and personal statements from commanding officers from other Southern Camps and afterwards from Cuba and Porto Rico justifies the unqualified statement that almost without exception they took hold of their duties with great Energy and quickly made themselves efficient and valuable officers. None was More highly praised than Young Logan. Among others were a Nephew of senator Elkins. One of senator Allison a son of Secretary Alger John Jacob Astor a son in Law of senator Lodge a son of senator Foraker a son of Gen. Joe Wheeler and maj. Russell b. Harrison. These were one and All among the very Best Young of ricers sent to t Field. The Praise of maj. Harrison was Universal. Regular officers of lifelong training and High rank declared that they had never known a More i Lucient officer during the time he was discharging the difficult duties of Provost marshal in the Florida Camps. These names will serve to illustrate the class which it was so popular for sensational newspapers to denounce when they were doing their Best to drive a nation crazy with their cruel misrepresentations which for a time caused widespread belief that the soldiers in the Field were suffering and neglected and that the crying evil was political of ricers. These men. Atid others of like selection fully vindicated tie proposition that a class whose fathers hold distinguished position and especially when the latter obtained notable honors in the civil War was one that could be safely drawn from and relied upon to uphold the Fame of the nation and the family and further illumine the family s fighting record.
