Special to Tho Tribune.
NBPHI. Ulah, April 1. The jury in
the ease of the State vs. Charles
Petcrpon, who was charged with
the murder df John Backman. re
turned a verdict tonight of "not guilty."
The evidence in the case was con
cluded Thursday noon and the first ar
gument on the rart of the Stale was
made by County Attorney Ed Pike. He
contended that the evidence warranted
a verdict of murder In the first degree,
and he outlined the theory of the prose

dict Attorney M. A. rwOberlsou of Eureka
made the opening argument for the de
fense, contending that the defendant
was not guilty and that he should be
acquitted. Today the arguments wero
resumed and 'Attorney S. A. King, In
a three-hour speeclx, fully discussed the
evidence, and Insisted that thd defend
ant was justified In the killing of John
Backman and was entitled to a verdict
of not guilty. Mr. King was followed
during the afternoon by District At
torney Greenwood on the part of the
State, who concluded his argumont at 5
o'clock today. Judge Marloneaux
thereupon instructed the jury. The In
structions were a model of English and
were considered to be exceptionally fair
and lucid. Tho jury retired at 5:45 and
at S-45 was ready to return Its verdict.
There is another case acalnst Peter

IX-DLA.NAPOLIS, Ind., April 1. The
flood conditions throughout South
ern Indiana and Southwestern Il
linois are stJIL serious. The heavy
rains last night added to the danger.
At Portland, where a week ago three
lives were lost and heavy damage done,
only three or four business houses are
above water. At Peru also the situa
tion is serious, while- at Alexandria,
where the worst flood in the history of
that town is being experienced, the in

homes by the firemen.
Many narrow escapes from drowning
aro reported. In many cases where peo

taken from the roof by rescuers Just
before the buildings collapsed.
Several large manufacturing plants,

losses. The La Belle sanitarium, filled
with patients, many of them danger

A' family' named Stewart was driven
to tho second story, and later Mrs.
Stewart shouted to a rescuing party
that a daughter had just died from
pneumonia, the husband was near
death with consumption . and that two
other children were ill with pneumonia.
Heavy rains and a rapid rise in
streams almost duplicate the flood con
ditions of a week ago in this city. The
water crept over the levee near tho
Michigan street bridge today and began
to flood the residence section. The po
lice were ordered to warn the people
living In the lowlands.

More money has been sunk In efforts
to establish or break down newspapers
during the past three years than has
been made by the entire press of the
Slate in ten ceam It is estimated that
one man, who made a large fortune in
a hurry In a public utility, has sunk
nearly a half million dollars In less
than two years and is losing now at
the rate of 43000 to $5000 a week some
say, per day In efforts to put a news
paper property on its feet Newspaper
men are wondering how long he can
Politics Behind It.
Political ambition or hatred Is behind
the dwindling of fortunes in Indiana
newspapers. ' Ono man became angry
not long ago at a Congressman and
started a , newspaper to put his enemy
out of political business. At the end
of a year he announced that he had
already sank 5100,000 on the newspaper
and would go broko before he would
abandon his purpose of putting the
Congressman out of business. Tho
Congressman's majority continues to
increase; he has just been renominated
after a fierce fight, and the losses of
tho . newspaper not only continue, but
Another man ibis one high In poli
tical life for the purpose of helping
himself and withholding support from
a rival, began to pour money into a
prominent newspaper in the State some
years ago, and, although he has done
himself no good politically, It is said he
has lost half or more of his fortune
and is now losing 52500 a week In
financial circles there Is a growing1
query or apprehension as to the result.
In, yet another part df the State are
two newspapers in a city of half the
size of the capital of Utah, where, it la
said, two rival politicians have, during
the past two to (our years, lost ap
proximately 5200,000, and their accounts
continue largest on the right-hand side
of the ledger.
It Costs Big- Money.
To establish a dally newspaper any
where Is expensive. Hundreds of thou
sands of dollars, two years of hard and
intelligent work by capable and hith
erto successful nowspaper men, were
sunk in an effort to establish a dally
newspaper here duririg the past four
or five years. The failure to do It 'was
complete. And yet this Is an ideal place
to establish a newspaper especially an
Indianapolis has about 150,000 popu
lation, and the people hero read news
papers. A third of tho people here read
all the local dallies and a large propor
tion of the remainder receive two or
three dailies. Scarcely a family that
does not take one dally.
Then Indianapolis Is the grcates rail
road center of its size In tho country.
It has about twenty steam railroads,
about a dozen Inter-urban systems, and
a network of rural free delivery In ev
en.' direction. An Ideal place for circu
lation. The State Is densely populated.
Good towns and cities in every direc
tion, filled with readers, easy of ac
cess. It is said that there is a greater per
centage of reading population within a
radius of 75 miles of Indianapolis than
any place In the United States.
Yet more money has ' been lost , in
newspapers by ambitious politicians
and men striving in business, one
against another, during the past three
years, than has been made In news
papers in a decade.. And still it con
tinues. It costs big money and years of hard
work to establish a new or break down
an old and successful newspaper.
Cases in Point,
Over at Cincinnati the other day
there was rehearsed to me the experi
ence of some men In trying to break
down the old Commercial Gazette and
establish the Tribune. The latter. It
was aald. had lost more than a half
million dollars In a few years, and yet
great wealth and personal prestige
were behind it. The result was to In
duce the Commercial Gazette to sus
pend dividends and finally consolidate.
It looked like a case of scratching ono's
own face to spite his own nose. It nil
did no good, further than to distribute
rich men's wealth..
In Toledo there was a struggle last
ing ten years or more, by . Deacon
Richard Smith and others, to put the
Toledo Commercial on Its feet. A vast
amount of money and much gray mat
tor upon the part of good newspaper
men wero squandered but It was no
use. Tho paper went Into other prop
erty and other hands, and Is now a suc
cess. But ia It all worth a tithing of
At Toledo, Cincinnati and here the
efforts to establish newspapers have, In
but two Instances, Injured the old ones
and the' latter being owned by the
owners of suece.sful rivals, it matters?
not. So far the efforts to establish the
new concerns have not only caused im

Carolinian Declares the Demo

Beater. Demand for Name of the New Moses
Refused Beveridge Champions
WASHINGTON,. April 1. There
was a spirited debate In the
Senate today between Mr. Sim
mons of North Carolina and Mr.
Beveridge of Indiana on the question of
the propriety of a Congressional inves
tigation Into the affairs of the postof-
ficc, during which the prospective Pros- 3rfl
ldentlal nominees ot the two political III
parties in the next campaign were free- J
ly discussed. H
Mr. Simmons said that the Republl- I
cans already had in effect named as I
their Presidential candidate the pros- I
ent occupant of the White House. He I
described the President as "a man of I H
spectacular propensities, rash, hard- I H
headed and impulsive; a man believed )
by thousands, aye, by millions. Includ- I H
ing many In tho Republican party, tn ;
be by nature and temperament unfitted H
for the Presidency because dangerous
to be entrusted with supreme power." H
Mr. Simmons admitted that thero are
now factional differences In the Demo- H
cratic party, but said they would be H
healed and the party would give tho
country "a candidate who would be H
sober and of a judicial temperament; of
sound mind nnd judicial disposition; a iH
man who will get a large Republican H
vote because Republicans will know H
that their interests In his hands will be I H
"safe," I , H
"Nome Himi Name Him!" "Was Cry. H
A numbor of Republican, Senators de- ' H
manded the name of the candidate, and
some suggested "Parker," but Mr. Sim
mons declared that ho would "not show
Mr, Beveridge rpplicd, thanking Mr. H
Simmons for the warning that the Rc- IH
publican party must fight for Its life j H
in the next campaign. He referred to IH
111? inquiry of Mr. Simmons as to where H
the corruption in the Po3tollice depart- IH
menL originated and declared that ho H
had succeeded In securlrig the admls- H
slon that the Postotllcc department H
frauds had had their origin In a Demo
cratic administration. He congratu
lated the country that the discovery 1
had been made at a time when thcro
was an administration possessed of
sufficient courage to apply the lancet
and let out the poison. This, he said.

the conduct of public affairs which was
Ho was satisfied the countrj was so
well satisfied with this character of
service ns to be content to continue 11.
He then eulogized President Roosevelt's
leadership, saying It had been so wife
and patriotic as not only to command
the united support of his own party in
the Senate, but also to force a division 'H
on the Democratic side of the chambei.
Mr. Beveridge said that tho announce
ment that the Demoorats have a can
didate Is news to everybody, and he In
slsted that Mr. Simmons should gratify
the curiosity of the Senate by giving
his name. "Tell us who he is," Mr.
Beveridge said, appealing to Mr. Sim
mons. "I decline to enlighten the Senator,"
Mr. Simmons replied, "because 1 ant
not myself enlightened. I do not know iH
what his name will be, but I know what IH
Ills qualities will be." IH
"Our candidate will be such a man IH
as will insure the support of the large
element of your party who will bp jH
afraid to support your candidate." suld
"Parker a Secret, Hearst Improper.'
Mr. Beveridge: "Then give i;s hla
name. Is It Judge Parker?"
Mr. Simmons; "He'd make a very
good one, "but T do not undertake to say
who the candidate will be."
Mr. Boveridge: "The Senator Insists 'H
on reticence as to Judge Parker; pos- iH
sibly he will tell us whether it is his jH
l'ellow-eitir.en, -Mr. Hearst; what does IH
he nay to thut?" IH
Mr. Simmons: "I have stated that I IH
had In mind the name of no particular
man. I do not think the Senator should
prc?"s me further. The Senator knows
that It is not proper that I should at
tempt to name the man In view of tlv
fact that the Democratic candidate will
be nominated by the Democratic con
ventlon and not as the result of the
dictation of any boss."
Mr. Beveridge: "Is you candidate
Judge Parker?" Il
Mr. Simmons: "That Is a secret." fl
"Well, Is It Mr. Hearst?" again asked fH
"It would be Improper to -reply," said
"Then," remarked Mr. Beveridge.
"according to the Senator from North
Carolina, Mr. Parker is a secret and
Mr. Hearst Is improper."
Mr. - Beveridge predicted great diffl
cully on the part of the Democrats in jH
agreeing both on candidates and on is- jH
sues. The Republican party was more ll
fortunately situated. That parly would ll
be able to present not only a formidable
array of Issues, but a leader who would IH
present them worthily. IH
"If Is true," he said, "that wo hne
agreed upon a leader. The name of out
candidate and the next President Is the
name of tho present President, Theo
dorc Roosevelt, and we are glad to M
name him." H
