FREE ALCOHOL FIGHT. 4 ,The Standard Oil Interests In the Senate have opened their campaign againBt the bill for untaxed denatur ed alcohol. The leader of the Stand ard Oil forces is Senator Aldrlch, father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and sometimes called the "boss" of the Senate. Senator Aldrlch Is In a position to seriously interfere with ' the passage of the bill, as he is chair man of the committee on finance, and j without a doubt he will exert all his jlnfluence to prevent the bill becoming fa law,' for if such a law were enacted his employer, the Standard Oil Com ipany, would be hard hit in Its weak- est point. Its great monopoly of oil for lighting and fuel, and gasoline for power engines, would be wiped out, as denaturlzed alcohol when burned In a lamp provided with a mantle, is jnot only "much cheaper than oil but also gives a much better light. As a substitute for gasoline denaturlzed al 'cohol has no peer. It Is not only (Cheaper, but what is far more im portant, its supply is practically un limited, as it can be manufactured from vegetables and grain, both of which are very abundant in this coun (try. It can be readily seen from this jthe removal of the tax on denaturlzed I alcohol will mean much additional money for the farmers, besides provr lng a boon to manufacturers. The bill is sure to be passed by the House, ,and It will be up to the Senate to .'prove whether it is for the entire country at large, or for special inter ests, as represented In this instance by the Standard Oil Company. In the House the chief exponent of the un taxed alcohol bill is our own repre sentative, James Watson. It Is safe J to say Mr. Watson will have the best wishes for the success of his fight of jevery farmer not only in the sixth 'district, but also In the entire coun try. WAT30N'S DEVELOPMENT. Hardly a day passes but some men t!on Is made of Representative Wat 8on in the newspapers. Nor Is this "newspaper mention confined to Indi Jana alone, but extends all over the country. Mr. Watson is rapidly be coming a national character. He is to day the acknowledged leader in the House of two fights against two of the largest and most powerful trusts In the country. He Is waging war against the Standard Oil' octopus with the untaxed alcohol bill, and is after the Tobacco trust with his anti-clgar- ette measure. Mr. Watson has won his way to this position of national (prominence, by hard and unremitting habor In the House during his ten or Jtwelve years service there. Ills rapid "rise is due to ability, not chance, for Jmany representatives, years his se niors, are still filling unimportant po jsltlons In congress, while he has gone lover their heads by leaps and bounds. rThe men whom Mr. Watson has over ftopped are simply representing their constituents, while he not only falth ,fully and ably represents his constltu jents,' but also is playing a leading 'part In measures of prime importance 'to the entire country. The great repu tation which Mr. Watson is carving for himself in congress, reflects great credit on the voters of the sixth dis trict, who have had the good sense to reelect time and again a man so preeminently qualified to represent them In the House. s Ill SOCIETY'S REALM ONE OF SEASON'S PRETTIEST DANCES WILL BE HELD 8ATUR DAY EVENING.

Moore, a farmer residing east of Milton, is the recipient of a "conscience" check for $1.65 from a former neighbor of his, whose name he withholds, who many years ago appropriated some property belinglng to Mr. Moore. He was a greatly sur prised man when he received the check as the incident had almost passed out of his mind. . In the letter which was enclosed with the check the sender stated that when he resided near Milton years ago he passed by Mr. Moore's farm one day and found a sack and a pair of gloves. He took this property and used it for his own purposes. Later the man moved to California, where he still resides, and scarcely -a day went by but that his conscience pain ed him. Lately he worried so much over his "misdeed" that the thought of his wrong doing became unbeara ble, so, to square himself with his conscience and Mr. Moore, he decided to send money which would cover the value of the articles "stolen."
