Logansport Weekly Journal (Newspaper) - November 3, 1883, Logansport, Indiana In a Mem a the week journal a a Raj. Itti Ai vol. 35.Logansport, Indiana saturday november 3, 188 3.-12 pages. No. 47. Hon. W. D. Kelley recently returned from England where he spent Jereral months in search of health and during which time he examined the condition of labor and the Labouring cla8ses,declares that his observations abroad have Only made him Quot a More intense protectionist if possible than he visited the Coal and Iron regions in South Wales and spent some Days studying the conditions of the Iron workers of that Region. He says of them Quot i found the Labouring population Little better than starving. There was an immense number of men Idle. One town which had once a number of thriving Iron works was actually falling to pieces. I found women and girls at the Mouths of the Coal pits loading and hauling cars filled with Coal and in the Iron works handling Large Iron plates. In fact they were engaged in most of those forms of labor which require no special skill and therefore receive the smallest remuneration. The wages of the men were of course larger than the women were receiving but still they were miserably in England he visited Manchester Sheffield and Brimingham. He says Quot everywhere i found the workmen underpaid and discontented. Near Birmingham Are the Nail making towns of Lye waste and Hales Owen. I found much of the work was done by women. They received five shillings a week and from that were deducted the rent of the forge the Cost of the fuel the Cost of carrying bars from which nails were made at the forge and nails when made to the shops of their employers. The women if married and with children had usually to pay two shillings and sixpence a week to some caretaker to look after their children at Lye waste were Many Brick making establishments where the women earn six shillings a week and were in consequence envied by the Nail and Chain makers. Bat the envy of the country siae were in the girls employed at the galvanizing establishments. They got seven shillings a week but none of them could Hope to retain their health Long enough to enable them to work steadily for six consecutive months because of the injurious effects of the acids used in the process of manufacture upon the Throat. There is unquestionably a feeling among All the working people in great Britain that free Trade and f american inventions have ruined them. I remember hearing a Man say throwing All the earnestness of prayer into his profanity by god it would have been a Good think for he if America had never been discovered. European correspondence. Do. Leomard in this Issue agitates the subject of Quot insurance the question of the right of a firm or corporation to Isurease the Price of it commodity presents itself forcibly to the insuring parties of the Community. The general supposition is that a Man can set Auy Price he pleases it u tie article he has for Sale and it remains with the purchaser to pay that Price or let the article a one. In the Case of the in Strance compact Quot it is a Little different. The necessity of having some Protection outside of that afforded by the City is apparent to All. The insurance companies offer this Protection or rather indemnity against loss and have worked up the business to such an extent that business men and owners of buildings feel an actual necessity for such a Protection. The Quot compact Quot entered into by a majority of the companies increases the insurance rate at an average of 50 per cent this has been done in the principal cities in this state and the reason assigned for the same is that the companies have been losing Money Anil need this increase to enable them to continue in business. This May be so and again it May not be so As their published reports indicate but a mass of uni Tel likeable figures that convey but Little information to the Public at Large. Logansport has spent a Good Deal of Money and her citizens Are heavily taxed therefor to afford her better Protection from fire and at the same time enable her citizens to obtain better insurance rates. But very few cities in the state Are better protected and yet this avails nothing. Her rate of insurance is increased largely in excess of what is just and equitable. There Are Many towns and villages in this state largely inferior in a fire protective standpoint to Logansport that Are obtaining rates of insurance lower than the rate committee composed of but one Man and he a stranger has fixed for this City. To enable this Quot compact Quot system to hold together a manager is placed Over the different agents whose duty consists in examining All reports to the companies and to see hat the agent does not write the insurance lower than the prescribed rate. The salary of said manager is paid oat of the Quot increased rate Quot and we doubt exceedingly if after the expenses of his office and his own salary is deducted whether the companies will actually receive Mach Benefit from the increase. Or. Leonard is fighting the compact single handed and we Hope he will succeed in forcing the companies to adopt an equitable and just rate. To properly understand Rome we must recall two facts one that she was built upon seven Hills and that within her Walls were and Are other Hills which swell the number to at least ten and the other that the tiber a dirty Mountain Stream and notoriously liable o freshest flows through the great City. The Rome of to Day comprises three cities the dead and buried Rome of ancient history mediaeval or Catholic Rome and the Rome of Victor Emanuel and United and free Italy. A Large portion of the Rome of Antiquity covering a period of Over a thousand years and embracing the Early Rome of the Kings the Republic and the Empire is thirty feet under ground. This Rome lies like the dead Corpse of a giant Only half buried. Catholic Rome with its three Hundred and sixty five churches is As Hawthorne finely says Quot a Heap of broken rubbish thrown into the chasm Between our Days and the Empire merely to fill it up and its history compared with classic Rome is but broken the True Rome of Victor Emanuel and Freedom is now rapidly being built and will one Day be one of the most splendid of the cities of Europe. How could old Rome get its head thirty feet under ground the Hills and the tiber partly explain this phenomenon. The tiber every year rises Twenty feet above its level and brings with it a vast Quantity of mud which it washes from above Rome. Catholic Rome hated Pagan Rome and desired to see it obliterated. In the course of a thousand or fifteen Hundred years these annual deposits of the tiber covered All of Rome that stood in the valleys of its ten Hills and this we must remember was the business and political part of old Rome the Hills being chiefly used for residences. The Wash from these Hills for an equal length of time has helped on the work of the River. Mediaeval Rome with its palaces and churches was mainly built out of the Rome of the sesame. Augustus boast was that he found Rome of Brick and left it of Marble. This Marble Rome for a thousand years was a Quarry out of which mediaeval Rome stole its building material. The tombs upon tie App Ian Way illustrate this. Every particle of their Marble has been striped off of them and nothing is left except the ugly Brick work Quot backing Quot As we Call it in the United states that supported these Beautiful White facades. All the old palaces and churches Are built of material found in the ruins of Augustus. To such an extent was this carried on that the Marble was burned to make Lime for Cement and plastering. The other Day i noticed that a Farmer s Stonewall with which he fenced his pastures was partially made of Marble fragments. Another cause for the burial of old Rome is to be found in the fact that it was made the damping ground for Catholic or mediaeval Rome. This Rome was and is built a mile or More to the North of old Rome and has always been a Large City and the accumulation of its rubbish each year very considerable. Old Rome laying in its rear and being an object of contempt and the superstition of the dark Ages making it a severe religious duty to Aid god s purposes by burying the Heathen temples. In process of time even the Beautiful forum became a pasture for cows and goats. I am not romancing but Only stating what we see on every hand Beautiful pavements and prostrate columns at the Bottom of canals of channels or great holes dug in what appears to be pastures or Meadows. These excavations Are going on in every direction for two reasons one to satisfy Learned societies in Europe engaged in antiquarian studies the other to find grades and Levels for the new Rome that is now being built by the italian people. We must constantly remember that classic Rome never contained less than a a million people and covered an immense area of territory and also that it was seve al times after of Saviour s death burned and pillaged and left As Complete a wreck As fire and sword could make it. But neither could destroy a Marble Pyramid or a Gigantic building like the coliseum. He must be a bold Man who attempts to describe old Rome or St. Peter s and the Rome of Victor Emanuel now being built. Everybody has read of the coliseum even those who have seen it Seldom realize its real grandeur any More than that of St. Peter s. When i say that the circumference of the Wall of the coliseum is Over 1,000 feet and its height 157 feet and that it was capable of seating 80,000 people who could every one leave the building in ten minutes so perfect was the construction i state facts that Are hard to be realized even by an actual Spectator. It rests upon eighty Gigantic Arches each seventy five feet High. Only one Side is left in its entirety the remainder being the Quarry out of which innumerable palaces and Public Walls were built. It was built by 60,000 captive jews and consists of three Arches one within the other the outer of which As i said is 157 feet in height. The entire Interior was while it was new lined with the most costly marbles. It is hard to believe that this Gigantic building was until a few years ago covered to a depth of 30 feet in the debris of old Rome and yet so it was and partly is for Only about one half tha Arena has been excavated. About one Han dred rods away is the remains of the old roman forum which wis once a wilderness of temples court House and statuary but is now almost As solitary As the grave. Here is where Cicero delivered his unrivalled orations where Mark Anthony addressed the people with Cesar s bleeding Corpse before him and the spot where Casar s ashes were buried. Here also is the place where Virginius killed his daughter and where it is said Curtius leaped into the Gulf afterwards drained by the great Cloaca Maxima which although built Over 2,500 years ago is to Day the most perfect sewer in the world. Here entered for a thousand years the social political and religious life of the greatest nation on Earth. The pavements of the old via sacral of Julius Caesar s House and Nero s Golden Palace Are in Many respects As perfect As the Day they were Laid. A few rods Distant is the prison where St. Paul was incarcerated. Rome is full of St. Paul. His House is shown and fairly Well identified. It is in the ghetto or jews Quarter and very near a very old Church. The place of his execution is identified beyond reasonable Cavil. This old roman House of Paul to me had an interest that absorbed All others for the jew s Quarter in which he Laboured is today essentially the same As it was 2,000 year ago. These Are the very streets he trod and these the very houses that he visited for the old roman houses Are still standing. Roman Cement and Brick never gives Way. It can t be Burnt Down and is not Worth stealing. It May interest our masons in Logansport to know that seven bricks make a foot of Wall and the Cement is harder than the Brick. Only two things can destroy an old roman Brick Wall earthquakes and pick axes. The seven Hills of Rome Are All Here and except one Are very striking. No doubt they have been a Good Deal Cut Down in the Progress of centuries. Yet they still retain their old roman names. Much of the old Wall of Romulus upon the Palatine Hill still stands and will stand for a thousand years to come unless destroyed by the hand of Man. Right oppo polite the Palatine and the ruins of old Rome a new and fairer Roma than Ever the poets or statesmen of Antiquity dreamed of is being erected the Rome of that Glt ious statesman Caw Ai that honest patient King Victor Emannel. This Rome is a City of free thought absolute religious and political Liberty and of Best culture of the nineteenth Century. It is marvelous to watch its growth. In every direction palatial buildings Street fountains and Public Parks Are biding erected. The via italien is equal to any Street in Paris. Instead of the twisted and narrow streets of medieval some those of new Rome Are of american Width and symmetry and the a streets Are lined with newspaper offices and All the appliances of american and English cities except one a railroads. The italians cannot Quot run a they completely fail in All the details of Railroad management. It is a pity col. Hill could not come Here a couple of years and show them something about time tables and running trains. Perhaps there is some excuse for this for it is said that the Pope violently opposed a railway s being built into the eternal City and its building was the last Straw that wrought the Complete Severance Between the Church and state that now exists Here. Protestant churches Are springing up All Over Rome. Not one Hundred rods from where i write upon the finest Street in Rome is a Beautiful new Church with an English pastor. Rome has waked up from the sleep of Ages and is to Day the most progressive City in Europe. Here Are three cities Side by Side a the splendid ruins of the Rome of St. Paul the dirty Rome of the dark Ages and the rising Rome of United Italy and the nineteenth Century destined one Day to be the Art and intellectual capital of Europe. I suppose i ought to say something about St. Peters yet How can i ? you might As Well ask me to describe mount Blanc and its splendours. The exterior of St. Peter s is the worst kind of a failure. Michael Angelo built it on the form of a greek Cross All the arms using exactly equal. In this Way its glorious dome and magnificent proportions would have been High Art. But after his death they changed it into a latin Cross the facade being the foot of the Long Arm. The result was and is that the dome is completely hidden and the proportions of the building concealed. Finding what a mistake had been made the architects endeavoured to atone for their error by erecting on each Side of the front of the building a splendid Semi circular colonnade and putting two great fountains in front. Thin helped matters somewhat but still the exterior is a disappointment and failure. All this however disappears the moment you enter the doors. Earth never saw such a sight. It Calls to mind the City of revelations Quot and the building of the Wall of it was of Jasper and the City was of pure Gold Vato Clear Glass and the Fonda of the Walls of the cite were Garish All manner of precious stones and ire Gates were of twelve pearls and Gate was of one it is a vast less of precious stones. Arch rises Arch dome upon dome Seraphim up Orliw Rashim and cherubim upon cherubim cum the senses refuse to do their work so of i whelming is the grandeur. Looking off a the distance i thought i saw a Fly up one Walls. Putting my Glass to my Eye i ecar it was a Man swinging by a rope my seventy five feet from the floor and ii of ged in dusting the marbles. Far above were two other men upon the Cornice of Marble Tomb holding the rope. Zim the floor to the roof of the dome in is 400 feet higher than any tit steeples in Indiana piled one on top of a other. Yet this gorgeous Church Cost the a Price that it must make a son of i Hurch shudder to think of England y and America. This Structure it Forth Luther and he created the action and the reformation Victor Mel and the nineteenth Century. I said mediaeval Rome covered and covers about one third of the territory within the aurelian Walls and Ici Pally located in the Campus mar of the Days of Augustus and the Kings. A confused mass of narrow cheerless often a portico will be situated Street so narrow that two carriages t go abreast and Beautiful fountains Lumens will be found in the most in Fez fitted and unheard of places. As a Rule the lower stories of All the residences Are pied by stables or blacksmiths or store Haliw. In these streets one meets with ail of people and some of them Are nil looking customers. The majority of Are not near so Well dressed or As intelligent As the people one meets with in a diff of the same size in the United states elements Are found Here that Are in in with us the priests and soldiers priests Are very numerous. One Rea for this is that Rome is the great Edu al Center of the Catholic Church by every nation maintains a Catholic Here and the students All Wear White or Black Robes. A Large num of the european priests or monks still tip the practice of shaving their Heads Pagh this consists principally of a round spot say two inches in Diame to Ripon the Crown of the Skull and is by concealed by a correspondingly a by Auk Oil Skau Aap to White rolled priests i am told Are an order of angst Ian monks. There is an order of barefooted and bareheaded monks that Are not pleasant to look at. Instead however of Bare feet they Compromise matters by Woolin sandals but go bareheaded. Mingled with these everywhere Are to be seen All sorts of soldiers and in All sorts of costumes. It is an everyday occurrence to meet with a Soldier with an enormous round hat such As we see in the picture books All covered with feathers and in his heels a big pair of spurs with a sword dangling by his Side. So accustomed Are we to fantastic military costumes that not even did the Pope s ship guards with their striped red yellow and White suits sur prise us. At every Railroad station we meet with a squad of these soldiers. And in them we it see the great standing curse of Europe its vast military establishments which eat up the substance of the people and do no Good. Put it is the settled order of things Here to be ready at any moment for a Gigantic War. The climate of Rome and the surrounding country is that of Cass Pulaski and White cot ties. In fact if you should to cat Rome in the Center of these three counties you would have the Campagna exactly reproduced. The celebrated roman fever is nothing in the world but our Wabash chills and ague. The Sun is exceedingly warm at noon but the mornings an 1 evenings Are Damp and Chilly. The country surrounding Rome is either a wet or rolling Prairie even Down to the dirt roads and Idank luxuriant grass rail fences and Sallow sickly men and women. Quinine is a Staple Here As much so As in Logansport. Within the last two years measures have been taken to rid the country of this malaria. The tiber is being deepened and the country is being drained. I have no doubt but that this evil can be subdued for we have no account of the Rome of classical history being thus cursed. One theory for this malaria is that so much blood has been shed at and near Rome that the soil has become unnaturally Fertile and the vegetation Over Lux Arient. But i think that this is fanciful and the True cause is that during the Middle Ages the drains of the romans became filled up. Few foreigners that once become fairly domiciled in Rome Ever leave it. There is a Quarter Here for nearly every nation where its Langua in and people congregate and live. Such is the Subtle Charm of the place such Are its associations that in spite of its sickness and diet if Rome once gets fairly hold of Yoti you Are sure to return. Hawthorne s Marble Faun contains some most charming descriptions of roman life. I re read it yesterday and to Day had pointed out to me Hilda s towers and the Rock Over which Donatello and Miriam Flung the Capuchin Monk. To Morrow i mean to visit the Church where he was buried and where they still to this Day bring the deceased Breth Ven in Earth that was brought Here from Jerusalem. D. P. B. Rome sept 25th 18s3. L.

Carson member of the vestry for the last twelve years whereas Obj has taken from us our colleague and fellow Churchman Robert Carson and whereas we submit humbly to the will of god in All things even while we in our blindness do not see or know Bis reasons therefore be it resolved that we the vestry of the Trinity episcopal Church of Logansport do hereby express our sorrow at the sudden loss of our Friend and Zeolle Oliue and we do also extend oar Heartfelt ii monthy to his parents and Kinsfolk begging them to look for Consolation to the god who Novoth even while he Cha Teneth. By action of the vestry n. W. Cady clerk. Or. S. B. Pratt stated to a journal Man monday that his brother capt. R. E. Pratt would pass through this City in a week or ten Days with four or five carloads of Indian children on their Way to the Sci tool prepared for them in the East. He will try to make arrangements by which the Little braves and Maidens will have a Lay Over Here of several hours. They will be attired in their native costumes and will prove an attraction. It is to be hoped that the train will Stop at least Long i Tough to permit Logan porters to take a Hasty Survey. Death lurking in the fog. The sunday morning North bound i Ger train collides with a Michigan Central freight. Three men killed who was to blame one of the most disastrous and fatal accidents that Ever occurred on the pan handle roads tributary to Logansport took place at Joliet crossing on the Chicago division Between 5 and 6 o clock sunday morning. The regular passenger Traia that leaves this City Early in the morning and an extra freight on the Michigan Central collided at the crossing throwing both engines from the track and killing three men. The engine on the Michigan Central was struck by the passenger locomotive Between the Drivers and both were landed parallel along the track. The pm employees of the trains and passengers at once set about Clearing away the debris and rescuing the bodies of those held fast in the wreck. William Norris Engineer on the pan handle train was heard calling for assistance and after two hours work was rescued from beneath the Coal and engine and sent on a special train to Crown Point. His right leg was badly mangled and he was fatally internally injured. He died in about four hours after suffering the most excruciating agony. One of the engines in rolling Over fell upon the watchman s House a Small Frame a Hanty at the crossing and taking fire the building was almost entirely destroyed before the flames could be stayed. When the burning and smoking embers were cleared away the scorched and disfigured body of Peter Callie the flagman was found buried in the ruins. Iho body of John Gorman head brai Icmat on the freight train was taken from Ben Cath the trucks of the engine terribly mangled and disfigured. St. Clair fireman on the passenger train attempted the jump from his engine but was unable to do so. He escaped but with some very severe gashes on the head. The Engineer on the Michigan Central John Deng an was thrown from his engine and falling on the Crose Tiee was severely injured. Crazed with pain he ran no the track and it was several hours before he could be found. When found he could give no intelligible account of the Asci Dent. The tongues of All who Coald give any statement of the affair Are stilled in death and it is not yet known non a Boer Sfax Odleiv Rasta to it a of Fth collision. There is a Gate at the Croe Aisig but which train had the right of Way can not be told from it As it was torn from its place and hurled away from the track. The Michigan Central men attempt to attach the blame to the pan handle folks who in turn place the cause of the Acci Dent at the door of the other Road. The engines show that at the time of the Accident the Michigan Central locomotive lad the Forward motion while the other was reversed. It is very probable that Norris did not see the crossing to dense was a the fog until he was right on it and that he Ali. N his engine but not in time to Stop his train before reaching the other read. The pan handle train had eight passenger coaches in which Fiere were about 200 people. Three were Pullman sleepers. Had the Mich Ijjas Central train been a few seconds later the Accident would have been one of the most sickening and disastrous in Railroad annals Joliet crossing is near Crown Point is by level country and trains can be seen at quite a distance and but for the heavy fog that prevailed the Accident would never have occurred. William Norris the dead Engineer of the pan handle train was the oldest and one of the most trustworthy men on the Road he handled the engine that pulled the Grant party through from Chicago to Indianapolis several years ago. He lives in this City and has a wife and two married daughters. His remains were brought to this place monday morning. Funeral services will be held at his late Home on Market near twelfth at 2 30 this afternoon. Peter Callie the flagman leaves a wife and six children in destitute circumstances. John Kelli Fig. The dead brakeman is unmarried. Be made his Home at Michigan City. The pan handle train could not have been running at even a fair rate of Speed at the time of the Accident As the passengers knew nothing of it for at least three minut s after it occurred. Or. Joseph Watts of Oregon a Cousin of Joseph Henderson of this City is visiting relatives Here. Or. Watts is one of the old settlers of Oregon having lived there for the past thirty nine years. He tells Many an interesting incident of the Early life of the far West. He is on Board a Steamer in 1847 going up the Mississippi River when it was run into by another Steamer and sunk by which 135 lives were lost. This appalling disaster was the direct cause of Congress passing the signal Law by which steamers run Niue on the Rivers were compelled to blow certain signals when passing each other. Or. Watts came East on the recently opened Northern Pacific Railroad and he pronounces the country Over which this Road passes the grandest and most picturesque in this country. A May
