PRIMARIES AGAINST BURKE
THE TAGGAIIT 3IAC1IIXR AVAS OILED
FOR THAT PL'IIPOSE.
A Mht Conference Held at Englliik
Hotel Candidates II017 Shak
ing Hand Gomiip.
A majority of the leading Democrats of
the State who expect to attend the State
convention have arrived. The most of
them are stopping at the Grand Hotel,
which is headquarters for Democracy. The
delegates are slow in arriving. One candi
date said yesterday that he had never
known a time when there were fewer dele
gates present two days before the conven
tion. The greater part of the crowd now
here is composed of men who are working
for some particular candidate.
The majority of the candidates had ar
rived by noon yesterday. Those who opened
headquarters during the day had a quiet
time of it. Frank B. Burke, who has Room
2 on the second floor, was in his apartment
most of the afternoon but did not have a
great many callers. John W. Kern put in
the greater part of the afternoon in the
lobby, handshaking and talking. Mayor
Taggart was much in evidence. His smile
was unusually bland and he offered a hand
to everybody. "Bob" Bell, of Fort Wayne,
who is staying at the Denison. was about
the Grand during the afternoon, making
himself agreeable to everybody. IL R.
Watr, a good looking young man of South
Bend, was at the Grand all day, and was
pointed out as the law partner of B. F.
Shlvely. Mr. Walr maintained a discreet
silence all day in reference to Mr. Shively's
affairs, saying he preferred to let Mr.
Shively speak for himself. The lobbies of
the hotel contained a big crowd last night
until a late hour.
Among the arrivals during the day was
Allen W. Clark, formerly "king of the
push," who brought the information that
Messrs. Johnson and Walsh, of the Demo
cratic National committee, would arrive In
the city to-nlsht to attend' the convention.
Clark is editing an agricultural paper in
Chicago, but is . still identified with the
Democratic national committee.
About the only important meeting held
by the Democratic politicians yesterday
was the meeting of the State committee,
which took place in the evening.
Following is a list of the candidates who
have thus far announced themselves:
For Governor John W. Kern, Indianap
olis; Frank B. Burke, Indianapolis; Nelson
J. Bozarth, Valparaiso.

TALK OF THE PLATFORM.
Opinion Prevails that It Will Be
'Conservative Regarding Silver.
The opinion prevails among leading Dem
ocrats that, while the platform to be
adopted by the state convention will not
overlook the financial question, it will not
go greatly into detail in what it has to say
about it. It is the belief that the platform
will, in a general way, indorse the Chicago
platform, and will then declare for silver
and gold, perhaps not using the term
"ratio," or "sixteen to one." It is generally
understood that the policy of the adminis
tration in regard to the new territory ac
quired as a result of the last war will be
criticised, and that there will be an anti
trust plank and a plank declaring against
large standing armies.
Allen V. Clark, whose views on the
financial question are well known, said,
last night, that the two elements the one
known . as the "conservatives' and the
other the, ultra silver men are entirely
harmonious on the money question. He be
lieves that the platform to be adopted to
morrow will be after the style of the one
made in the Kansas state convention. It
will reaffirm the Chicago platform and de
mand that silver be returned to the place
It occupied in the currency of the country
prior to 1S73.
Dan W. SImms. a leading Democrat of
Lafayette, has submitted his views on the
platform to those who will probably have
something to do with making It. He thinks
It sufficient to reaffirm the Chicago plat
form and to go no further on the financial
question. "I believe the platform should ho
broad enough," he said, "for every Rood
citizen to stand on It. The paramount Issue
now Is whether or not we are for imperial
ism; whether we are going to reverse the
policy of the government; whether we are
polnj? to adopt the suggestion of Senator
Ileverldge when he said, In a speech. In
ISL'S: 'England has her colonies, why shall
not we? Germany has her dependencies,
why shall not we? The great world powers
are all struggling for supremacy and why
shall not the United States take front
rank? The adoption of this suggestion ab
rogates the Declaration of Independence,
puts the Constitution In the background
and renders the struggle of our forefathers
an idle ceremony."
Hold a Midnight Conference at the
A meeting of about twenty out-of-town
Democrats was held in W. L. Slinkard's
room at English's Hotel until 13:30 this
morning, to prepare to combat any move
on the part of the Taggart machine to rail
road a platform through the convention in
which the free silver plank is eliminated.
Mr. Slinkard Is from Bloomfleli and repre
sents a large portion of Southern Indiana
that Is opposed tq the control of the party
by the Marlon county machine. Some time
ago he se.7t out a letter to a large number
of. Democrats over the State asking them
to meet him at his room In the hotel at 10
a. m. The meeting was not held yesterday
morning but those in sympathy with the
movement got together last night. The
letter was a strong appeal to the Democ
racy of Indiana to stand by the Chicago
platform, and said: "The principles handed
down to us by Jefferson and Jackson, that
the coinage of both silver and gold, without
discrimination agaln?t either at th his
toric ratio of IS to 1 by the United States,
should be preserved and maintained. The
present signs Indicate that an effort will
be made to not embody that declaration
in the State platform, or at least a luke
warm or equivocal plank will be attempted
to be foisted on the Democratic party In
the State convention."
The letter askfd the recipient to bring
workers with them and this was the class
represented at the meeting last night.
There was not much time ipent la discuss
ing the advisability of taking the proposed
step, but it was how to take it. The entire
Chicago platform was Indorsed, then the
discussion of a plan that will be the most
efficient in blocking any effort to get an
anti-silver platform through the conven
tion was entered Into by "long headed"
members of the meeting. The candidates
representing the objectionable element
were also given an overhauling and the
foundation for an organized fight against
them on the convention floor was laid by
the handful of silver enthusiasts. It was
stated by several of the men after the
meeting that It is the plan to "lay quiet"
until the proper time comes, and by others,
that their temporary organization is only
to "be on the safe side."
PRIM AHIES FOR KEIIX.
The Tnggart Mnchlnc Carried Every
thing Before It.
As a result of the primaries held last
night, Frank B. Burke may get a few
votes In Marion county. He said last night
that he expected no encouragement In
that he will receive some votes from the
Marion county. However, it is certain
city delegation and perhaps a few from
the out townships. At the primary held
by the Democratic voters of Center town
ship outside the city, the delegates were
Instructed to vote for Shlvely. unless he
positively refused to be a candidate for the
nomination for Governor. In this event
the delegates were instructed to vote
against the "ring." The primary also
adopted resolutions reaffirming the Chi
In the Sixth ward Mayor Taggart's own
ward the Kern slate was victorious.
Among the delegates selected were Mayor
Taggart Charles Polster and Barney Con
roy. There was a lively time at this
primary when August M. Kuhn sought to
get Mr. Conroy off the ticket. Mr. Kuhn
arose and moved that the name of Emll
Fertig, one of the alternates, be substitu
ted for Barnev Conroy. The motion was
voted down with a howl. Mr. Conroy be
came very Indignant, it is said, and after
the noise subsided he sprang to his feet and
facing; Mr. Kuhn exclaimed in wrathful
tones: "What In the h 1 did I ever do to
you, you d gold bug?"
Mr. Kern and Mr. Burke both reside in
the Third ward. After the delegates had
been selected a motion prevailed to in
struct the delegation form this ward to
divide the vote between Kern and Burke.
The delegates are A. G. Smith, John V.
Holtzman, J. E. McCullough, Joseph E.
Bell and W. S. Ryan. Some of Mr.
Burke's friends were complaining last
night that the Third ward primary was
not conducted In accordance with the in
structions sent out by the county com
mittee. In the Fourth ward the Burke
slate was badly defeated. Henry War
rum, a stanch Democrat, and the law part
ner of Frank B. Burke, was defeated. He
was in no soft mood when he reached the
Grand Hotel about 9 o'clock last night.
"I was thrown in the air," he said. "The
fact that I was Mr. Burke's law partner,
that I had made two losing campaigns.
that I am yet to be relied on to give my
time and money to the party, was no ar
gument with these fellows who had talked
so much of giving Mr. Burke a fair deal.
No man can aspire even to be a State
delegate In this city if his name is not
approved by the political Jove who shakes
his head or gives the nod. Mr. Burke's
candidacy is a protest against the efforts
to apply machine methods to State affairs
nnd I believe It will appeal to the honest,
Independent delegates to this convention.
In the Seventh ward the Burke people
received the worst drubbing they had ex
perienced anywhere. The Burke slate
was beaten by a vote of 135 to 31. The
delegates selected in this ward were Joseph
T. Fanning. John N. Navln, Sam Dinnen,
E. R. Hooten and James Ryan. In the
Tenth ward there was a big fight for su
premacy and the James L. Keach slate
finally won. Keach. it Is understood. Is an
admirer of Frank B. Burke. It Is said that
Keach was not near the primary, but was
represented by James Morlarity, who is
one of the delegates. Kern's friends claim
that the Tenth ward delegates will divide
the vote between Burke and Kern. The
contests resulting from last night's
primaries will be settled to-night by the
credentials committee of the convention.
STATE COMMITTEE WHAXGLE
Orcr the Selection of the Four Del
egates at Larse.
One of the sessions of the Democratic
state committee last night broke up in a
wrangle. Mayor Taggart, the member
from the Seventh district, tried to dictate
the course of the committee, and, not being
as successful as he thought he should be.
Intimated that he wasn't belh? dealt fairly
with. The wrangle came vp over the se
lection of delegates at large fo the national
convention, a matter which Mr. Taggart
demanded that the committee should take
up. He announced to the committee that
he wanted the four delegates at large se
lected, and then suggested that each mem
ber of the committee go Into his district
meeting to-night and see that such men as
would vote for the four selected by the
state committee be put on the committee
on rules and permanent organization.
It is this committee that will select the
delegates at large. Mr. Taggart was suc
cessful Irt persuading the other members
.of the committee to take his view of the
matter and three men were agreed on with
out any special argument. These were
three of Mr. Taggart's personal friends
Samuel D. Morss, Hugh Dougherty and
Parks M. Martin. TT. S. Jackson then sug
gested that Allen W. Clark be named ns
the fourth delegate at large. A wrangle
occurred over this suggestion and Mr.
Clark was not selected. The names of
Major Menzies and James Murdock were
then presented. Mr. Murdock Is known to
be a genuine "machine" man. However, he
received but one vote, and this was cast
by Mr. Taggart. The latter then declared
that the vote had not been properly count
ed or taken and demanded that the meet
ing be adjourned until 3 o'clock this after
noon. The meeting adjourned.
B. F. Shlvely Expected To-Day.
The friends of B. F. Shively expected
that he would arrive in the city yesterday,
but he failed to get here. -A part of the St.
Joseph county delegation came in last night
with the information that Mr. Shively
would be here some time to-day. Politicians
from different parts of the State feel that
there Is a strong inclination everywhere to
compel Mr. Shlvelj' to make the race. The
fact that this Shively sentiment seems to
be gaining strength has had a tendency to
confuse matters with the other guberna
torial candidates Messrs. Burke, Kern
and Bozarth. They are unable to estimate
their strength as long as nothing definite Is
known as to what Mr. Shlvely's friends in
tend doing with him.
Warwick Connty Delegation.
Thomas Llndfey, of Boonvllle, piloted a
party of Democrats into English's Hotel
last night, that will represent Warwick
county in the convention. He said he
thought the majority of southern Indiana
delegates will vote for Burke, but that his
delegates are uninstructed. Asked If there
Is the same feeMng toward the "Taggart
machine" as there was at the time of the
reorganization of the State committee, he
smiled and said: "Well, not exactly, you
know that is all over now."
R. E. Bell's A'levrs.
R. E. Bell, of Fort Wayne, who wants to
be a delegate at large to the national con
vention, thinks that George Fred Williams
should be nominated for Vice President.
He also thinks that J. G. Shanklin will be
re-elected national committeeman if he de
sires the place again. "He Is regarded as
a big. generous-hearted man who has been
In the harness for a long time." said Mr.
Bell. The latter thinks the state platform
should be a strong Indorsement of the Chi
cago platform as a whole.
Said to Be Fighting Burke.
The friends of Frank B. Burke were yes
terday asserting that the street-railway
corporation was f.gthlng hlra because of his
attitude toward the company In bringing
fruits to set aside the franchise. One story
circulated yesterday was to the effect that
the street-car company proposed to carry
men from one precinct to another last
night, so that there would be no possibility
of the Kern slate falling.

HIGH SCHOOL EXHIBIT
THE ART DISPLAY VIEWED BY IIUX
DIIEDS OF rEOPLE.
Talent of a High Order Indicated by
Some of the Work Will
Continue This Week.
The Indianapolis High School is one of
the places of interest that will scarcely
be overlooked by residents and visitors in
Indianapolis this week. Large numbers of
people passed through its hospitably wide
entrance, up the magnificent stairway and
through the spacious corridors last night,
between 8 and 10 o'clock, viewing with un
concealed admiration the artistically ar
ranged groups of photographs, drawings
and sketches which confronted the eye in
every direction. These pictures represent
an amount of art talent, both incipient and
rapidly developing, which must be a great
surprise to those who have been unaware
of its existence, and which also means that
the city is destined some time to take high
rank as an art center.
A visitor's Interest is first caught by an
attractively-mounted "line" of amateur
photographs on the broad landing between
the first and second floors. To the right of
the beautiful "hall clock,' which was pre
sented to the High School by the. class of
"J0, is a group of remarkably clear-cut and
well-finished photographs of the building
and grounds, showing the High School
Cadets at "attention." On the left are
groups of natural views, Including "Jan
uary." "Dam at Broad Ripple," a bare
footed little girl and a portion of Monu
ment Circle, all executed apparently with
the skill of a professional photographer.
On the same llne" are also some excep
tionally fine "Field Day" pictures, which
are the work of B. Douglass. Walter P.
Pollock Is another young man whose work
shows to fine advantage. The main ex
hibit is found "on the second fl6or, on the
walls of the long corridor and in the reci
tation rooms. Here are shown specimens
of the work of pupils in the'lllgh School,
the Manual Training School and the Nor
mal School. Only a comparatively small
portion of the students' work can be shown
on account of lack of space for a larger ex
hibit. The High School display comprises
work In oil, charcoal, water colors, pencil
and pen and ink, with almost every con
ceivable subject of illustration. Wonder
fully well executed book Illustrations in
black and white and also in colors, pic
tures of birds, animals, flowers and natural
scenes, silhouette and poster pictures and
drawings and sketches in bewildering va
riety are shown. Great attention seems to
have been paid to pencil sketching, as dem
onstrated by the number of excellent sam
ples of this style of work. In the history
room a splendid view of a stairway is to be
seen. Here are also to be found some
handsome designs for art calendars. An
exhibit that attracts much attention is that
of the life class, which includes a great
variety of pencil and charcoal drawings,
designs for book covers and water color
sketches. A unique picture In this collec
tion is that of a skull, bunch of roses and
bottle on a small table, drawn by Elmer
Wilmington. Some admirable work done
by Alice B. Scott and Bess M. Brown is
also contained in this exhibit. The display
credited to the Manual Training High
School is never without a large quota of
visitors. Expressions of admiration of the
handsome collection of drawings and pic
tures were frequently heard. A reproduc
tion of a bas relief of a woman and child,
the workNof R. J. Wildhack. Is prominent
in the Training School exhibit. Mr. Wild
hack has quite a list of sketches to which
his name 1b appended. In this group more
book cover designs are found, also nature
sketches in water colors, together with a
variety of crayon and charcoal designs.
That some of the pupils promise to turn
their talent in the direction of architecture
is shown by a neat collection of plans for
houses. Some very good and also some
very bad specimens of lettering are shown.
On a large cardboard are five striking pic
tures of natural scenes, done in charcoal,
by H. Emrlch and Zelda Rehllng. A design
for an iron gate, drawn by Herbert Moore,
of this year's class. Is considered by many
to be one of the finest bits of work in the
In the Normal School exhibit are many
new and attractive wall paper designs,
book illustrations, calendars and fruit and
flower picture?. The best work is to be
found in what Is called "the advanced
room," in which samples of pictures made
by pupils in the highest grades are exhibit
ed. Among the most conspicuous of the ex
hibits in thls room are three white and black
oil paintings, by Myra Talbott, charcoal
and water color sketches by Alice Scott
and charcoal and water color pictures by
Alexis B. Many. Some of the work of Lucy
McDaniel, who is regarded as one of the
most promising art students in the. High
School, is also on display In this room. The
exhibit can be seen throughout the week.

Judge Allen, of the Marion Superior Court,
in holding the Barrett law unconstitutional
In the city of Indianapolis. Accompanying
the resolution was a letter asking that the
Board of Trade do all In its power to ob

son that it had completely tied the hands
of the contractors so far as city improve
ments were concerned. A motion made to
table the resolution was lost, and it was
later referred to the law committee.
The president and secretary of the Board

a certain length of time. It has for its
object, among other things, the promotion
of a fraternal feeling among Its members,
the promotion of the interests of the Na

ABLE ESCAPE FR031 DEATH.
He Is Employed by the Big Fonr as a

George Armstrong, a coach inspector for
the Big Four Railroad Company, had a
remarkable escape from Instant death late
Sunday night, while at work at the Union
Station. He was examining the running
gear of the coaches and got between two
of them which had been drawn a short dis
While stooping over, the cars were
pushed together and Armstrong's head was
caught between tho bumpers. The cars
came together with considerable force and
his head was squarely between the bump

even fractured, but the scalp was torn
loose and away from the top of the head,
hanging in the back only by a small piece
of flesh about a half inch square. He was
also bruised about the chest.
The injured man was picked up and tak

attended by Dr. Garstang. Thirty-three
stitches were necessary to replace the
scalp. His remarkable escape is thought to
have been due to the curvature of the
bumpers and the curvature of his head,
the bumpers gradually forcing his head
outward as they came together.
Armstrong came here about three weeks
ago from Terre Haute. His physician says
he will recover.

The Local Enumerators Have Made
It is very probable that the census for
Indianapolis will have been completed by
Saturday night. The rapid manner . in
which the majority of tho enumerators
have covered their territory, some averag
ing one hundred names a day, makes the
showing very creditable. While It Is not
likely that this average can be kept up It
will not fall much below that figure.
The enumerators have had considerable
trouble since the work began to obtain the
ages of some women. There have been
many embarrassing times for the enumer
ator, as frequently women refuse point
blank to tell their ages.
