Hnrrl on'-
IvntivvpoLis , Dee. HI. Harrison
passed the last day of Ihls to him crontlul
year , pretty much ns ho h is other dajs. In
the afternoon he i ecolvoJ quite n number of
visitors. Among the nioro iironiliicnt Cillers
to day were Circuit Judge C. E. .Mitchell , of
Texaikanu , Ark , mid to bo the only reuib- |
He tii si UP judge in Arlt ins is. The judge
was accompanied by his son , 13 U. Mitchell ,
of Nashville It is undoMtood tliolr visit
was purely Nodal. Another visitor of uoto
was Hon. Jnson H. Drown , demo
cratic congressman-elect from the
Third ( Now Albany ) linllatm district.
Ho is the ilrst democratic congressman , or
congressman-elect , to piy his respects to the
next president. Ho states that General Harrison
risen gave him n most cordial reception , free
of nil formality and roromony , "In met , "
says Brown , "you would have thought I was
a good staunch republican from the way the
president-elect received me. " Urowu is.nn
old aciiualntanco of General Harrison.
Other callers were ox-Uovoiuor Porter , \vho
was accoinpntiied by F. It. Hrowor , formerly
of Layvroncoburg , Intl. , and Joe Poole , of
Now York , member of the Harrison and
Morton campaign club , of Now
York. General Harrison received im-
olher uniiiuu cnno to-dav. It is
carved from a single piece of poplar wood , by
C. F. Gilbert of Crete , Nob. The handle
consists of an erect ntiuo imago , being sup
ported by a pair of high top boots. The donor
writes that this tlgnto Is intended to tjptfy
demoe.Mcy without protection , From each
hand of tlic iimuro hangs n chain , the
links of which arc small cages with movable
blocks within. The chains uio attacheJ to a
cuue in the center of the stick bo iring on its
edges four aces the uce of clubs , spades ,
hoaits and diamond' * . This cube typlilos the
republican parti hplding n full hand. Holoxv
is n smaller square with General Harrison's
initials carved therein. It is an ingcnuins
piece of ciuving , nnd of hundreds ot eanos in
thu general's honse it Is probably the most
grotesque ,
The presidential escort , comprising 100 erin
in ere inembeis of the Seventieth Indiana
regiment , have completed arrangements for
their trip to Washington. They will not ac
company General Harrison to Washington ,
as ho will leave Indianapolis about ten days
prior to March 4. The escort will urrivo in
in Washington about t ! o'clock Saturday ,
March i ! . Lieutenant Merrill will bo in
command. They will not wear military
uniforms or lints or medals. Their dress
will bo light brown overcoat with
derby hat to match. This escoit will moot
the president-elect at the door of the Wilhmls
hotel and remain immediately about him
from that moment until ho tcturns from the
inauguration. 'Ihcy will constitute the pros-
idcntal guard of honor. The Columbus cjub ,
of this city , ! WO strong , will accompany the
veterans on their trip to Washington.
At a meeting of the local Methodist minis
ters to-dav , the interesting fact becomes pub
lic that tiio crusade against Ihq imtuguial
ball at Washington was started by
ucit.iiu clergymen of Columbus , O. ,
yy ho formulated their views in opposition to
the ball and forwarded them to the Metho
dist clergy of this city for action. Or.
Kueno presented the petition to the Columbus -
bus clerey , which in substance asks General
Harrison to publicly renounce his approval
of the inauguration ball and declare he will
not attend It. In commenting upon this cler
ical suggestion , Dr. ICccnc said some action
by the cleigy.of Indianapolis was now looked
for , and that their opinion regarding
the action of the Columbus clergy
ought to bo definitely and unmistak
ably expressed. Ho was earnestly
opposed to duncinir , and a discussion of the
subject followed in which several ministers
gave their approval of Or. Kccno's views ,
and a motion was finally carried unanimously
that n committee of three bo appointed to in
vestigate und consider the advisability of
tendering counsel to the president-elect , re
garding the matter of the inaugural ball mid
report their dotci initiation at the next regu
lar meeting. Prlvato Secretary Hulfnrd did
not attend the meeting nnd ho is strongly
opposed to any interference on the part of
the clergy with social customs that have al
most become laws , und thcro is but little
doubt that ho reflects the views of both General -
oral and Mrs. Harrison on this matter.
When General Hritton was here two weeks
ago , ho asked General and Mrs. Hanison if
they had uny suggestons or requests
to make regarding the inauguration
bull. General Harrison made but
ono request , that was that the veterans of
his old regiment might net us his guard of
honor. All other matters pertaining to the
inauguration were left under the absolute
control of General Hntton nnd his commit-
too. It will therefore bo seen that the clergy
men uro Into in their crusade , as the matter
has practically passed out of General
Harrison's hands , and thoio is
scarcely any possibility that ho
yyoulu , under any pressure , interfere
with the arrangement of the Inaugural com
mittee. Should the pi cacheis finally appeal to
him , thov will doubtless bo politely refei led
to General Hritton. General Hiurison , like
many others , does not look on the inaugural
bail as a dance , but lather as a part of thu
coiuiiiony that custom has ulentllled with the
occ asion.

A very largo aullie'iiec greeted Mr. .loscph
Muiphy at the Grtind oijera bouse last night
nnd received the diaina. of "The ICony Gow"
with evident gratification. Iho play has
been in the repurtory of Mr. Murphy for a
number of yoais , and has enjoyed a wide
popularity us one of the best of modern Irish
dramas. Mr. Murphy/ an actor of Irish
chaiactors , needs no commendation nt this
late day. His poMJLlOn Jn the front rank was
long ago cstabliatk'fl , aiul the testimony to hjs
popularity which was given in the laigo
audience of last night is repeated every
where throtighont' tlio country. His Dan
O'Hura is one of ho shongest of his charac
ters Mr. Murphy's leading support is'Miss
Hello Melville , who nppioved herself a very
capable actress in the part of Nora Drew.
The company ns a whole is a very good one ,
seveial of the characters last night being
notably meritorious. This afternoon and
evening "Tno Donngh. "
An audience of only fair proportions wit
nessed with mnikcd pleasure the pi oscilla
tion at Boyd's opeiti house last evening of
"A Pair of Kids , " with the author , E7ia P.
Kendall , in the eccentric comedy character of
Jiles Button. The work is on the well
known lines of the farco-comedv of the pres
ent day , but Mr. Kendall cannot be accused
of anything in the natuio of plagiarism.
The wit , the humor of the incidents , and the
droll situations are unquestionably his , and
thcro is a gicat deal of merit in them. The
satirical quality i ofers clnolly to the inoi bid
interest which many women take In inur-
dereis nnd other despot ate criminals , mid
the musical features , while not wholly new ,
are taking. The funny business of the pro
duction devolves largely upon Mr.
Kendall , who occupies the stage
much of the time , and his
comedy is of un essentially original nnd
unique character that is exceedingly amus
ing. The company is fairly good and gener
ally the characteis were acceptably acted.

The charter committee finished their

motion loft it to MO-.SI-S W. .1. Council , An
drew Kosowater , St. A. O. Balcomb nnd
Secretary Nattinger to place the amend
ments suggested in proper shape for pib-
scututlon at Lincoln. The question ot u R.\S-
tern of pari < s was thoroughly discussed , and
it was decided that all cities of the metro
politan ulns should possess such a system
It was also decided that fhoro should be a
board of live commissioners , appointed by
the district Judges and selected iroiu among
those citUens willing to work without salary.
They are to bo appointed on thu second
Tuesday of oath May , and for terms of from
one to iivo years , ono member to be selected
annually. In order to moot thu uxpcnilituru
tlio city council is authorized to lavy not luss

dcvisu n system of parks , not 10 extend be-
\oiul two miles from the city limits , and to
employ a secretary , himlicajio gnidcncr nml
such other help as they deem necessary ,
It was also decided to suggQst that a
change be made in the city treasurer's de
partment , nnd that th future he should bo
paid n llxod salary ( if # 5,000 per year , bo fur
nished with neconary clerical help , and have
