i Chicago Papers Say H? Shar
ed the Honors With Speak
er Cannon at Banquet.
the sixth district cngress
;man talks interestingly
on th general condition
of the present campaign.
All of the Chicago newspapers pay
tribute to Congressman Watson as
fwell as Speaker Cannon in the pub
lished accounts of the Marquette club
banquet held at the Auditorium hotel
on Tuesday night. Congressman
"Watson was at his best and the Chi
cago Tribune says that he shared the
Hionors of the evening with the dis
tinguished speaker, , his address being
one of the bright spots of the even
ing. The Tribune adds that Cannon
was honored "for what he is," and
'Watson "for what he says."
Watson on the Issues.
In an interview given out Tuesday
relative to the political situation in
general, Congressman Watson talked
interestingly of the chief issues In
the. present campaign.
"I think," said he, "that the tariff is
not a real issue in this campaign and
that no amount of tariff agitation by
the Democrats will make it an issue.
Probably it approaches the dignity of
an issue more nearly in Iowa than in
any other state where. we have spo
ken. There is considerable sentiment
for tariff revision in Iowa, but even
there the people are not willing that
the tariff shall be revised by the
"I find that everywhere tariff revis
ionists are awakening to the fact that
the greatest hope for iariff revision is
in the election of a Republican house
of representatives. The are begin
ning to realize that if the Democrats
were to carry the house this year
there would be no chance whatever
for a revision of the tariff by the Six
tieth congress because a Republican
senate would never concur in what a
Democratic house would do.
"I find," continued Mr. Watson.,
"that tha expression of the Indiana
Republican platform on the tariff is
being adopted by Republican leaders
all over the country, and it has really
become a national slogan. That the
tariff will be revised by the Republi
can party whenever revision will do
more good than harm, as announced
In the Indiana platform, 'is now the
attitude of the party nationally."
"Are you a stand-patter?" the
"whip" was asked.
"I really don't tknow," he replied.
"If you mean to ask me whether I am
a stand-patter In the sense that the
Dlngley schedules should never be
changed, I will say unhesitatingly
'that I am not. If you mean to in-
quire whether I think the tariff should
be revised at the next session of
congress I will reply with equal
promptness that I am a stand-patter
in that sense.
Attitude on RevTsion.
"The Republican party can not
name an exact date when it will be in
favor of revising the tariff. To say
that we shall be ready to begin the
work of revision on February 22, 1909,
at i p. m., would be preposterous.
Business conditions throughout the
country will furnish the index that
will guide the Republican party and
there will be no revision until it is
apparent that it will do more good
than harm to the country. There is
no such thing as a? perfect tariff bill.
The one now on the statute books has
inequalities and the next one will have
also. All legislation is compromise
and every bill is a patchwork. This
is particularly true of a tariff bill, be
cause it touches every township and
community in the United States."
Mr. Watson says that the Democrat
ic situation in Missouri, where he
and Mr. Cannon spent considerable
time .is very much like the Republi
can situation in Iowa.
Folk," said he, "has divided the
Democratic party in Missouri and
Cummins has divided the Republican
party in Iowa, so that the outlook, as
far as congressmen is concerned, is
doubtful in many districts in each
state. We now have ten Republican
congressmen in Missouri out of six
teen, and I am inclined to beve that
we shall elect ten again this' year.
Folk wants to be elected senator to
succeed "Gum-Shoe Rill' Stone. This
year Stime permitted Folk to'capture
th organization, so that the whole
burden of conducting the campaign is
on Folk. It the Democrats lose the
election Folk will be lost in the shuf
fle and will not embarrass Stone when
he seeks re-election two years hence.
The f is a general impression in Mis
souri that 'Gum-shoe Bill' will not
shed any tears if Folk's organization
should happen to get a black eye.In
fact, it is thought that 'Gum-shoe Bill
will help, in his quiet but effective
way, to blacken the orbs of his Dem
ocratic rival. The Republicans in
Missouri are up and fighting. We
had large meetings in the west and
the enthusiasm was great"

'Oldest Inhabitant" Remarks at the
Queer Antics of the October Weath
er Temperature Took a Decided
Slump Yesterday.
The snow fall yesterday, while light
was remarkable in two ways. First
it came a trifle earlier than general,
for the first half of October rarely
witnesses any of the "beautiful" in
this latitude. The most extraordin
ary thing, however, is that snow this
year preceded frost. Despite the
falling temperature during the past
few days there was no frost In this
locality and the snow storm beat "old
Jack" in this year's race. The "old
est inhabitant" professes surprise at
the antics of this October weather
but the prediction is freely made that
before October is ended there will
be a period of warm weather, charac
teristic of Indian summer.
Many Persons Sat in Darkness While
Those Who Depended on It for
Heati Shivered,
The natural gas supply was lower
last night, than at any time this year,
and those persons depending on it for
light and heat were both cold and al
most in darkness.- Pres. Hibberd of
the Natril V?s Company, stated last
night that the company could not fill
the demand, which was too great for
the present supply. In the courseof
three or four weeks the new pipe line
will be completed and the company
will have access to-the new fields, and.
hopes then to have a supply that will
fill the demands.

Cincinnati, O., Oct. 10. It is possi
ble that within the next ten days a
compromise will be made in the liti
gation between the C, C. & L. and the
Pere Marquette over the bonds which
the latter road had guaranteed for the
purchase of the former. According
to the plans under way to end this
suit, which might be In the United
States court for years, the C, H. & D.

The settlement of this suit will end

Had Narrow Escape.
Cambridge City, Oct. id, (Spl.)
Geo. E. Schafer, Jr., met with a very
serious accident this movninig while
driving a span of mules to a heavy
gravel wagon from his home south of
Germanton, into town. As he was
crossing the tracks near the German
town depot, the rear end of his wag
on was struck by the 5:25 mail train
from the east. The boy jumped just
in time to escape being hit by the
train, which was going at a high rate
of speed, and the team escaped with
out any injuries beyond a few scratch

Cambridge City, Oct. 10, (Spl.)
Ephriam Achbaugh, alias . Tom Win
ters, and better known as "Tinkering
Tom, was arrested this morning on
the charge of drunkeness, and cruel- !
ty to his wife and children, but was
released, as his wife would not ap
pear against him. As his conduct
was very bad after being released,

Limited Interurban Trains Be
tween Indianapolis and
Dayton to Be Models.
Much local interest is being mani
fested in the meeting of the American
Interurban Railway Association
which convenes in Columbus, O., next
week. The question as to when the
new through interurban cars will be
started between Indianapolis and Day
ton will be decided. It was stated at
the interurban station yesterday
that the new cars were about ready
to be turned out from the factory, and
when completed would be the best
equipped of any running today in the
United States. It is thought that the
cars will be started in the course of
the next month.
Another feature that will attract lo
cal Interest is the question as to
whether the traction lines will make
a determined effort to capture freight
business or devote their exclusive at
tention to the passenger business. It
is said that several of the most im
portant traction officials of Indiana
and Ohio, are in favor of devoting
the exclusive attention of the various
roads to passenger business and make
their service much better than that on
the railroads. They say that since
many of the railroads are contemplat
ing reducing their fare, the traction
lines will either have to reduce theirs
or put on as good passenger service
as the railroads are giving to their pa
The freight business out of, and
through Richmond on the various in
terurban lines, has grown to such pro
portions that it is almost impossible
to handle it. The Dayton and West
ern line added two new freight cars
to their service some time ago, but
these do not begin to take care of the
business. The Indianapolis and
Eastern runs two freight cars each
way from Richmond, and these cannot
handle the rapidly growing traffic.
Since the Dayton and Western and
the Indianapolis and Eastern have
consolidated into the Indianapolis, Co
lumbus and Eastern, traffic arrange
ments are such that freight can be
handled between Dayton and. Indianap
olis, and many of the wholesalers and
merchants are taking advantage of
this feature. Every day much freight
passes through Richmond from these
two points.
It is probable that on the interur
ban cars built in the future more al
lowance will be made for baggage
room, for since the interurbans have
agreed to carry one hundred and fifty
pounds of baggage free, this feature
has grown a third greater than it was
ever before. " ' ,
Dr. S. E. Smith and E. M. Campfield,
the Latter the Contractor, will Be
Among the Persons Present at Cer
emonies. Dr. S. E. Smith, medical superin
tendent of Easthaven, who has been
acting in the capacity of expert ad
visor to the state commission which
located and will build the new hospit
al for the insane at Madison, will go
to that city next Monday to attend the
ceremonies incident to breaking
ground for the new institution.
Governor Hanly will lift the first
shovelful of dirt from the excavation.
The governor will shed his coat,
roll up his sleeves and manipulate the
spade at U o'clock in the afternoon.
Governor Hanly will start the ex
cavation at the request of the con
tractor, E. M. Campfield, formerly of
Richmond, who is to erect the new
million dollar institution. It is not
the intention of the commission to ar
range any other ceremonies. Con
tractor Campfield decided that the
governor might prove a mascot and
bring good luck to him in the con
struction of the great building. It is
expected that a large crowd of Jeffer
son county people will be present
when the excavations are begun.

backward from the wagon. He fell;
striking his head upon the curbing.
The large stove toppled over and fell
with great force upon the already daz
ed man. At his home. Hilling was in
a serious condition and some doubt is
entertained by the doctors as to his re
covery. Hilling is the man who brought a
charge of assault and battery against
Officer Goldep, whom he claimed hit
him in the head with his fist, without
any cause whatsoever.' " Members of
Hilling's family state that they have
noticed that the man has seemed daz

was struck. He has also complained
of severe headaches. It was Hilling's
wife, who several weeks ago, was
moved out of her house at the south
west corner of North 13th and F

of the rose plants in the Pallad

capable of standing the winter

rule would be to cover them all
