Senator Albert J. Beveridge spent
yesterday afternoon and evening in
Kicbrr.ond in the afternoon address
ing the local chapter of the Daughters
of the American Revolution at the
Vestcott Hotel and in the evening
speaking to an audience of 2500 at the
Coliseum, from all parts of .the conn
ty. The Senator appealed to his
hearers to return a Republican house
to Congress in order that the Presi
dent might be supported in his pro
gram of legislation, and the reception
Kiven his words seem to indicate that
Wayne County, intends to do her part,

State Senator Roscoe E. Kirkman
Introduced Senator Beveridge paying
a tribute to his worth and referring
to him as a representative of the peo
ple who was entirely in harmony with
Roosevelt and closing with the decla
ration that Indiana's Senior Senator
would some day be elevated to the
highest office in the gift of the Amer
ican people. This sentiment met with
favor and there was an outburst of
applause.
Some Significant Statements.
The name of Roosevelt was brought
forward throughout the evening and
it never failed to elicit applause. Sen
ator Beveridge dwelt upon the pure
food bill and said- that it was defec
tive in two parts. These defects, he
said were to be corrected by the next
congress and he held that the work
never would be done by Democratic
legislators. The speaker took occa
sion to rap Bryan's government own
ership theory. He said that the day
had not come when the American
pepple were willing to trade their in
stitutions off for European ones. He
advocated the control of the giant in
dustries and said that the railroad
rate bill was but the beginning of this
regulation.
The Glory of America.
"After all there is no country like
America" was Senator Beveridge's
opening remarks. "Every one of our
eighty million citizens glories in his
American-citizenship and every Amer
ican would rather be a citizen of this
country than any other country on
the globe. A . good many citizens of
other countries would rather be an
American than a citizen of their own
fatherland. Today there is a larger
immigration to this country than to
any other country in the world. These
immigrants are not the exhausted
sons of aristocracy but the strong vi
tal common people of the cd world.
Today there is more foreign capital in
vested in the United States than in
any other country in the 'world and
today the United States is the money
center of the world and the Ameri
can people are lending money to all
the world."
Divine Hand on Nation.
Mr.. Beveridge cites thesa facts as
an example of the enterprise and.
progress of the American republic
and stated that this condition of af
fairs was due to the policy of the;
American people and that this policy
had been originated and carried. into
effect by the Republican party. "As
Lincoln performed the duties given
him to perform under God; as Mc
Kinley performed the duties given
him to perform uner God so today
Theodore Roosevelt is performing the
duties given him to perform under
.Goif sSated Mr. Beveridge, amid
loud applause. He then cited the long
list of law for which the Republican
party was responsible and proud of
and then stated that not one law of
national benefit could the Democratic
party claim responsibility for.
Nothing Is "Well Enough."
"No one in this audience or in the
country can comprehend what a bil
lion dollars means" said Mr. Bever
idge, "but since Mr. Roosevelt has
been., ejected president the American
export tr;ide has increased that much
each year; increased a billion dollars
annually under a man who before he
was elected the Democrats predicted
would ruin business in this country.
We are not content to let well enough
alone, we are going to make well en
ough better. There is no such phrase
as 'well enough in the American vo
cabulary. "The Republican party has in the
last twenty years passed twenty laws
anyone of which could be used as
an issue for a successful campaign.
T will only mention two of these laws
one of which is the Railroad Rate
bill, which was passed on the de
mind of President Roosevelt. The
railroads are the most important fac
tor in the life of the Republic. It is

St. Petersburg, Oct. 17. (Via the
frontier) A crisis is impending in the
affairs of Finland and upon the best
of authority it can be stated that the
revolutionary party is now prepar
ing to give the word to its members,
and. three out of every four Finns are
members, to rise against the Czar
and his minions. Arms continue to
pour into the country. They no longer
consist in the main of revolvers of
the Browning and similar patterns,
but include all manner of weapon
from cold steel knife and bayonet to
short rifle and portable rapid fire
guns. It is open to doubt whether
the Russian arsenals in Finland con
tain anything like the assortment of
weapons hidden away in Finland pop
lar copses and pine forests by the
Finnish revolutionary redoutables. It
is of no use longer blinking at hard
facts. Something serious, very seri
ous, is preparing in Finland.
Arms For Every Man.
At the present moment, at a modest
computation, the stock of revolvers,
long barrelled, long distance pistols,
carbines, Berdans, and other rifles in
Finland is sufficient to arm effective
ly every man in Finland over 20 years
of age.
The Russian central authorities
themselves are fully alive to the fact
that Finland is again rapidly becom
ing dangerous, mainly "because Finns
are essentially an ultra-patriotic na
tion, a disciplined people trained for
generations to self sacrifice and obe
dience to their leaders, and gifted
in comparably more than Russian's

Another Enterprise.
R0P0SITI0N A GOOD ONE
THEY ARE WILLING TO GIVE
FORTY ACRES IF A GOOD ASSO
CIATION WILL BE FORMED TO
BACK THE FAIR.
There is a chance for Richmond to
be numbered among the Indiana cit
ies that have successful fair associa
tions. As was stated in the Palla
dium some time ago there is a be
lief that a fair association to which
farmers from every township in
Waayne county and the business men
and manufacturers of Richmond
would lend earnest support, could be
gin its career next summer and be
come a permanent fixture.
The South Side Improvement Asso
ciation which recently purchased the
large tract of landjn theSouui end
and which intends to devote a part
of the tract for factory and home
purposes, is willing to dispose of
about 4 acres of ground for fair pur
poses, provided that it goes to an as
sociation that is organized on a busi
ness basis and which , will 1 conduct
the fair on such principles that will
show the- people of Richmond and
Wayne county that the enterprise is
for the common good and not for the
profit of any individual or set -of in
dividuals. Forty acres will give ample-space
for-a 'fine half mile- track'
and plenty of room for the necessary
buildings for displays of live stock,
agricultural products, etc.
The part of the Beallview tract
that, the South Side Improvement Association-
stands ready to sell under
certain provisions ' as stated above,
is well shaded and could be converted
into an ideal fair-ground with com
paratively little expense. It is close
to the heart of the city, an advantage
that is worth considering in the loca
tion of a fair ground.
The project it is asserted, has
reached no definite shape at this
time. If some responsible business
men can be induced to promote the
project it is believed that a fair as
sociation can be formed this winter
and the capital provided for the con
struction of the . racef track, grand
stand, buildings, etc

TARGET PRACTICE

OTHER GOOD RECORDS.
Publishers PressJ
New York, Oct. 18. A new record
for .gunnery at sea has been made by
the battleship Elaine, flagship of Rear
Admiral Evans, which arrived here
today from the Massachusetts target
grounds. Not only has the Maine
broken the American record, but is
is believed she has also broken the
worlds record.
The Maine and the other ships of
the North Atlantic fleet tried a new
system of firing at floating targets,
using an entire broadside while
steaming at 12 miles an hour. The
gunner of the Maine fired a port
broadside of 6-inch rifles at a target
2 miles away and made the marvel
ous record of 29 hits out of a possible
Ii9. Five of the six inch guns were
used, the program being to fire the
broadside at regular intervals. " But
the target, which was sixty feet long
by thirty feet high, was knocked
down by the thirty ninth shot, and
the fortieth shot was not fired.
The nearest approach to the work
of the Maine was that of the Missouri
which made twenty-four hits out of a
possible forty one. The record of the
Maine figures out 75 per cent for the
six inch guns. There was a moderate
sea running at the time of the firing,
i The Maine broke other gun records
also.

Along Line to Meet Pan-,

A LIST OF NEW FARES
RATE TO CINCINNATI AFTR NO
VEMBER 1 WILL BE $1.25 IN
CREASE IN BUSINESS ANTICI
PATED. For the purpose of meeting the(ac
tion of the Pennsylvania liis and
other competitors, which will intro
duce an open form of mileage book on
November 1, the Chicago, Cincinnati
and Louisville railway company has
announced that on" that date it will
place in effect an order that the local
fares between all its important points
as well as many other stations, will "be
reduced to 2 cents a 'mile and become
the local ticket selling rate.
This radical change . will enable pa
trons of the C. C. & L. to purchase
tickets at 2 cents per mile to its va
rious points without investing $20
for a mileage book, and the advantage
therefore can be easily noticed. This
reduction is much greater than that
contemplated in the announcements
of the C. C. & Li. people a few weeks
ago, and the officials of the line are
looking forward to a great increase
in the volume of passenger traffic to
be handled when the new rate be
comes effective.
The rates of fares when paid in
cash on trains will be considerably
higher, which will be charged with a
view of having passengers always pro
vide themselves with tickets before
boarding trains. Following is a com
parison of fares from Richmond:
New Rate Old Rate.
Cincinnati $li23 $1.90
Muncie . SO 1.20
Marion 60 2.10
Peru 1.95 2.93
North Judson 2.95 4.40
Griffith 3.80 5.C0
The action of the C. C. & L. com
pany in adopting the two-cent rate
is commendable, and the announce
ment will be delightfully received by
the traveling public. By the estab
lishment of the new rate the com
pany will be able to maintain strong
competition, as well as to have a no
ticeable increase in its business.

Delegates From AH Over the

PROGRAM ANNOUNCED FOR
THREE DAYS' SESSION
Old System of Having Each
Yearly Meeting Control Its
Missionary Work May Be
Done Away With.
But few people recognize the sig
nificance of the missionary conferen
ce of Friends which will be held in
this city October 24, 25 and 26 at the
East Main street Friends meeting
house. It will be the first meeting of
the kind ever held in the i-'ricnds
church and marks a step in the devel
opment of missionary work in tha
church. It is the idea of the leaders
and active members of the American
Friends Board of Foreign Missions,
to bring all the yearly meetings and
missionary societies of the church in
to closer touch, by which more effi
cient work may be accomplished as
a whole. As Matters stand at the
present time each yearly meeting
controls a missionary board of its
own. These yearly meeting boards
of missions have acted independently,
of each other and as a result many
fields have not received the atten
tion that they should, although the
Friends as a whole have made a
particular effort to be .thorough in
their work and especially so along
missionary lines.
If the main promoters of the mis
sionary conference have their wishes
gratified, a step will be made next
week to bring all the yearly meeting
missionary societies, and those focI
eties acting independently of yearly
meetings, under the control of tb-$
American Friends Board of Foreign
Missions, and make the missionary
work conducted by the church uni
form. The object of the conference
is to decide this one point.
Those Interested Welcome.
Although the meeting will be open
it is understood that it is the wish
of the promoters of the affair. thaC
it be held as exclusively from out
side interference as possible. Tho
conference is strictly a delegate one,
but others who are not delegates or
