BEX FRANKLIN'S OPINION.
Life Innurniice, and It Eminent In
doraer of n Century Ago.
Benjamin Franklin's Inherent knowledge
and appreciation of important truths, as
yet almost unknown to the world of his
day, was astonishing. Though a man of the
soundest Fense and practical to an extreme
degree, his mind was still in the future,
and he lived a century ahead of his age.
lie understood the benefits of printing and
the possibilities of newspaper power better
than any of his contemporaries. His ex
periments with electricity and estimate of
its future usefulness are familiar to all.
In the science of government he was so
correct in theory that the Nation has since
seemed to have followed his ideas and an
ticipations as closely as a navigator might
a weil-proved charL
A curious Instance of his almost infallible
natural Judgment is seen in his apprecia
tion of the worth of life Insurance. In his
day there were none of the organizations
which have grown into such mighty worth
and usefulness in our time. The old coun
try furnished nearly everything in the way
of insurance companies, and those were, as
yet, experimental, possessing little of the
value which, under American experience
and energy, has now developed Into a sys
tem so prand and beneficent. The public of
Franklin's day viewed the idea rather as
a possibly impious meddling with destiny,
or else with utter indifference to its im
portance and advantages. Not so the great
philosopher himself, for this Is what he
said of it then:
"A policy of life insurance Is the cheapest
and safest mode of making a certain pro
vision for one's family- It is a strange
anomaly that men should be careful to in
sure their houses, their furniture, their
ships, their merchandise, and yet neglect
to insure their lives surely the most im
poTtant of all to their families and far
more subject to loss."
Hut it is doubtful If even Franklin's
prophetic mind could have foreseen the
imposing future of life Insurance in his
native land. In little over a century from
the time in which he so justly criticised
people for falling to understand its neces
sity, the interest has grown to a vastness
commensurate with the progress of the
Nation itself, and more than four million
policy holders now attest the Importance of
what was so intuitively clear to him a
hundred years ago. The insurance in force
by the standard companies of this country
is over $'3,000,000,000, or at the rate of nearly
$5 per capita for every human being on the
face of the earth.
The country has well outlived Franklin's
stricture upon its caring better for the loss
of property than the loss of life, as much
more money Is now paid out each year for
losses by the life than by the fire compa
nies, though the latter disburse great sums
annually. So extensive is the business of
many of the organizations, so weighty the
responsibility of thelr.management. and so
momentous the trusts involved that were
Benjamin Franklin now among the living
he might possibly find fair scope for his
ab'lity as the head of an American life

FINAL CALL IS ISSUED
MEETING OP rE3IOCIlATIC CLUBS TO
BE HELD HERE 0. OCT. 3.
The Call Signed by Bryan, Stevenson
Jones and Hearst Usual Popo
The final call for the national convention
of Democratic clubs to be held in this city
on Oct. 3 has been issued by William J.
Bryan and Adlai E. Stevenson, Democratic
candidates for the presidency and vice
presidency, James K. Jones, chairman of
the Democratic national committee, and
William R. Hearst, president of the Na
tional Association of Democratic Clubs.
The call, which is addressed "to the Dem
ocratic clubs, societies and citizens of the
United States," follows:
"The near approach of the national con
vention of Democratic clubs, which will be
held at Indianapolis on Oct. 3, Imposes on
Democrats everywhere the duty of Increas
ing the work of club organization. This is
a field of patriotic endeavor in which every
citizen of every State and Territory can
be reasonably expected to take his place.
Patriotism can accomplish little unless it
is active, brave and. practical. The far
reaching Issues which confront the Ameri
can people to-day issues which involve our
form of government and the principles up
on which it has thus far securely rested
should Impel every citizen to become a
politician in his own right. The govern
ment belongs to the people, and the people
themselves must defend it when it is in
"The Democratic party Is opposed to the
establishment of independent colonies un
der the American nag, is pledged to in
crease warfare against trusts and every
form of private monopoly. The Kansas
City platform hus arrayed against the De
mocracy the combined power of those who
profit by iniquitous laws, government fa
voritsm and perversions of the Constitution
of the United States. A vast corruption
fund has been contributed to the Repub
lican party by those whose personal greed
is greater than their Interest in free in
stitutions. Just legislation and an Impartial
administration of the laws. Unless the
control of the government and its policies
are to be determined by the corrupt use of
money, the people must be awakened to a
realizing sense of the deadly peril environ
ing their most sacred democratic Institu
tions. "The Democratic party relies for victory
upon the justice of Its cause and the hearty
co-operation of its supporters. The work
of defending the Nation against imperial
ism, militarism and trusts can be best ad
vanced by club organization. It is a con
venient and Inexpensive method of raising
a great volunteer army of liberty. A loyal
citizen should be ready to serve his coun
try in time of peace as in times of war.
Let every citizen who sympathizes with the
Democratic cause take it upon himself to
do something toward the organlztlon of a
Democratic club or society in his own
neighborhood. There should be a club in
every precinct in the country. The power
of organization is irresistible when the peo
ple are in earnest.
"All Democratic state and local commit
tees are requested to see to It that no pre
cinct shall be without a Democratic club.
Time presses and there should be no delay.
The enemy Is powerful, vigilant and ac
tive. A club organized now would be more
effective than a club organized next week.
"It is Important that every Democratic
organization in the country should Join the
National Association of Democratic Clubs
(headquarters No. 1370 Broadway, New
York), and should send delegates to the
national convention of Democratic clubs at
Indianapolis. It is especially important
that the number of clubs should be greatly
Increased before the convention meets.
"This call Is addressed to all who believe
in Democratic principles, regardless of
party name or past afnllations."

MR. WflTKINS'S PARTNER
SELLS A HALF INTEREST IX THE
CLUB TO CHARLES Ill'SCIIATJPT.
Hereafter Watkins Will Devote All
His Time to the Tlnyers
Charles F. Ruschaupt now owns a half
interest in the Indianapolis Baseball Club
and will hereafter serve in the capacity of
secretary and treasurer of the club. The
deal, which was talked about a few weeks
ago, was finally consummated yesterday,
and W. H. Watkins now has an equal part
ner in the baseball business in this city.
Mr. Ruschaupt and Mr. Watkins have es
tablished permanent headquarters in the
When building Room 21 where they will
look after their baseball interests. They
also own the programme privileges at the
Park and Grand theaters and will be busy
in the city all of the winter. In speaking
of the change made in the ownership of
the club aix. Watkins said last night:
"With Mr. Ruschaupt now a partner I
will be able next season to devote my time
to the team. During the season just closed
I was handicapped by having to look after
the business end of the club as well as the
team, and as a consequence the team got
away from me for a while and I did not
have the time to look after the players as
I will next season. In 1901 Mr. Ruschaupt
will relieve me of the business duties and
I will devote my entire time to the players
with the hope that the finish of the, sea
son next fall will see Indianapolis further
up the line than the club finished this year.
"This season I will break about even., I
have not figured all my expenses and "do
not know exactly what the books will
show, but there will be a small balance
on the profit side. It may be a little too
early to talk about changes in the team
next year, but I will say that the Indianap
olis club will be strengthened at every
weak position, and my aim this winter
will be to have lines out for talent to im
prove the playing strength of the team.
There have been reports that Hogriever
would not -be with the Indianapolis club
rext season, but I will say that he will
surely wear an Indianapolis uniform next
season. Hogriever is ' a scrappy player.
He was handicapped this season in his
work, but next year there will be changes
made which will give Hogriever an op
portunity to play the kind of ball which he
is capable of putting up."
Mr. Watkins would not announce the
rrlce paid by Mr. Ruschaupt for a half in
terest in the club. Mr. Ruschaupt has
sold his refreshment privileges at the Pitts
burg ball park and will be in Indianapolis
next season. The Indianapolis club will
lose Magoon and Hartsel, but they will De
succeeded by good men. There will no
doubt be several trades made by Manager
Watkins the coming winter and several
new faces will be seen in Indianapolis uni
forms next year.

Shooting Association will- be held this

Mrs. Travis Gives Some Valuable
Ioiutat About the Carnival
"It seems," said Mrs. H. McCall Travis,
who Is directing the floral parade, "that
about two weeks ago there appeared in one
of the local papers an article relative to
the flower parade in which the statement
was made that many of the vehicles were
to cost a thousand dollars and more. I
suppose that $100 was meant, but I also find
that the $1,000 Idea has scared many out of
the parade, and consequently I think a de
scription of various schemes and the ap
proximate cost of each quite necessary.
"It Isn't so costly to enter a floral parade
as one might think, and yet a great deal
more expensive than some have an idea it
is. It all depends upon how much of the
work one does at home, upon the size of
the vehicle and upon the kind and color of
"I use artificial flowers, not only because
they are cheaper, but because they are
more desirable. I have yet to see a really
beautiful and artistic carriage in the nat
ural flowers, because they must be put on
at the last moment, and even then invaria
bly fade and droop before the pageant is
ready to move, while with the artificial
flowers one can decide upon the color
scheme and work several days decorating
the carriage until every point is carefully
and artistically carried out. I have seen
really exquisite things that cost less than
$10. I have in mind now a party of girls in
Montgomery, Ala., who decorated a trap in
white chrysanthemums, driving to it a pair
of horses white as snow. The trap was
first entirely covered with white cambric
until not a speck of the black showed. Then
the fluffy chrysanthemums entirely cov
ered every particle of the cam
bric, the harness were covered
with a cheap white satin, yet quite good
enough. .The young ladies were gowned
in white organdies, with white picture
hats and white chiffon parasols, and the
whole thing cost less than $10. But one
must understand that the white French
tissue paper is less expensive than any of
the colors, and that the young ladies did
all the work, with my assistance, of course.
"In the same parade was a tallyho coach
occupied by railroad officials which cost
$250. I sent to the School of Design In New
York, where I studied and fitted myself for
my profession, for a national design. It
was a big flag emblazoned with the red
rose, white carnations and bachelor but
tons on one side and the state coat of arms
on the other, while the entire coach was
a solid bed of white roses. It was a mag
nificent creation, yet no more effective in
the pageant than the dainty white equi
page. Of course one must have the great,
massive coaches, necessarily expensive, to
carry out a complete idea, but the public
must not confound the cost of them with
that of pony carts, phaetons and traps."
Mrs. Travis will be at her headquarters
at the English Hotel each day this week
and will teach all who wish to enter the
parade not only to make the flowers but
the whole decorative scheme. The number
of vehicles is increasing each day, fully
fifty having been planned up to date
Mayor and Mrs. Taggart will drive at the
head of the pageant.
Merchants Urged to Decorate.
The committee on decorations of the Fall
Festivities Society, in letters to the mer
chants of the city, are urging the decora
tion of business blocks and stores in car
nival colors, "red and yellow." The com
mittee has made contracts for extensive
decoration along the principal streets and
the 'Magic Circle," and has assistants who
will help merchants in planning and exe
cuting schemes of decoration.
