State Senator Springer Would Introduce a Substitute for Hanging. A SUBJECT OF INTEREST CONDO'S BILL ABOLISHING CAPI TAL PUNISHMENT, AND SPRING ER'S MEASURE SHOULD CAUSE GRUESOME SCENES. With ReDresentative Gus Condo. of Marion, talking on the inhumanity of legal hangings, and Senator W. E. Springer, of Elizabethtown, expound ing the comparative merits of electro cution, there should be enough grue some moments in the 1907 session of the Indiana General Assembly. Everybodx has known Condo's op position to capital punishment, but Senator Springer's advocacy of elect rocution as a substitute is new. lie had nothing to say on the subject last session, but has prepared his bill since,, or else had it then and was too busy heading off private banking leg islation to start a movement toward the electric chair. "It is the present-day method," he said. "Our, Indiana practice of hang ing is a relic to earliest times. Cer tainly it cannot be denied that elect rocution Is more humane than hang ing. The most advanced States in the Union are now adopting it, and Indiana should do the same." Representatives Condo and Spring er gave traveling men in the English Hotel lobby a hint of what a day in the Indiana Legislature sounds like, for a moment or two last night, when they tried to get together on their dissimilar propositions. They could start on the identical premise that hanging Is barbaric, but could never get together on the same path. Elec trocution as a substitute was worse, as he had pictures of charred and shriveled corpses to prove. Condo declared, in the mild voice he used when addressing the entire popula tion of the Madison Soldiers Home. Abolishment of capital punishment was as ridiculous as it was unfair to law-abiding people, averred Springer, with all the Terver of a man who knows his rights. It was great while it lasted, but Baron Rothchild, self selected Speak er of the occasion, said something and the session adjourned. Condo will doubtless create a great deal of interest in his bill this term. He said he expected to ask Mayor Brand Whitlock, of Toledo, to speak before the committees of the House and Senate, , if convenient. White lock is one of the best kown advoca tes of the abolishment vf capital pun ishment in the country He endeav ored, unsuccessfully, to have the Ohio Legislature enact a law of that character last winter. Springer says he will work for a high liquor license law, and favors an increase from $100 to $1,000 for county licenses. He believes it will decrease the drinking and the crime in rural districts if nowhere else.. RACE SUICIDE HOT 1 NATIONAL PERIL Chicago Educator Declares that Decrease in Children is a Blessing. .. SETS FORTH REASONS SMALL INCOMES, HE ASSERTS, GO WITH LARGE FAMILIES AND PROPER SUPPORT CANNOT BE GIVEN CHILDREN. f Publishers Press: SnHntrfield. 111.. Dec. 27. "Instead jr - o ' ' of a national peril, race suicide would i be a national blessing in some classes iof the people," said Superintendent W. L. Bodine, ot the compulsory du ration Department of the Chicago schools, in an address today before the State Teachers' Association. "Large families, resulting from in considerate and improvident marriag es, are prolific of muci misery- and so cial harm. "Fate decrees that small incomes al most always go with largo families. This drives many husbands to drink and desertion. Truant husbands f make truant children. The mother fs forced to work and the children are raised for the street and the State. We cannot change human nature. We have the childless home among the rich and the homeless child among ! the poor. Modern Individualism nas the right to govern its own aomesuc affairs. Some prefer quality to quantity; others are fanatics on pro gressive patriotism. ) " ' "Real race suicide Is the growth of child slavery caused by parent hood that raises children as human nmnndities and whose ambition Is,- production instead of education.

John I. Sullivan, for twelve years rhamnion heavyweight pugilist of the world, will be at the Gayety theater In j Indiananolis all next week. He has gone ninety-two weeks in a land full of the stuff that cheers and Inebriates without taking a drink. His manager is Frank Hall, and judging from Hall's success in keeping Sullivan from the flowing cup, it appears that a man has at last been found with strength enough to whip Jeffries. Sullivan is fortv-eierht years old and he is saving j money for the first time In Ms career He is seen by big crowds wherever he goes, and always makes a hit. A Dig part of his monologue Is directed at Dr. Osier, the Baltimore physician, who nevc- said that men are useless after they are forty, and that they ought to be chloroformed at sixty. John L. recently wrote Dr. Osier that he would agree to put his fist through a panel of a door 1 inches thick, and that if there was not forco enough left in the blow to knock Dr. Osier down if he stood behind the door he would never don the gloves again. ANOTHER QUESTION TO BE President Stands Between Two Fires in th Case of Dist. Atty. Burke. CONCERNS SEN. WARREN WYOMING STATESMAN WANTS BURKE AND INTERIOR DE PARTMENT DOES NOT, YET WARREN IS FRIEND OF ROOSE VELT. Publishers Press. Washington, Dec. 27. The bitter fight being made by the Secretary of the Interior against the re-appointment of District Attorney Burke of Wyoming may eventually have a de cided bearing upon the negro troops case, which Senator Foraker is open ly pressing, much to the embarrass ment of the administration. Senator Warren of Wyoming is standing firmly for Burke. He de clares that the district attorney is an old friend of his and he laughs at the charges made by the Interior Depart ment that Burke "has been persis tently neglectful of his duty regard ing prosecutions and Investigations of irregularities in connection with public lands within his jurisdiction." Senator Warren is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Military Af fairs, of which Senator Foraker is al so a member and which the latter is trvfnc tn have investicate the legality of the Presidents recent dismissal of negro troops. The Wyoming Senator has been a stout defender of the ad ministration upon the floor and in committee. The recnt coupling of his name with the gigantic land frauds which the Interior Department charges have been" practiced in Wy oming and other western states, has greatly nettled the senator. Official Washington is . now wond ering whether the President will in dicate his confidence in Senator fVar ren by again selecting the district attorney whom the government must depend upon in the prosecution of certain land frauds. The position of the executive is an embarrassing one. A BIG BILLIARD MATCH TO BE HELD IN ST.

HERMAN NOT DISCOURAGED CHICAGO LAD HAS A GOOD FOL LOWING ALTHOUGH THE BET TING FAVORS GANS AT LEAST 2 TO 1. Publishers Press. Tonopah, New, Dec." 27. Joe Gans is down to 133 pounds. The announ cement was followed by a big plunge of the dusky champion today. The Gansites had been holding thousands o fdollars which they evidently thought It time to put up at once. The Herman men took It too, gener ally at odds of 3 to 1. Herman is not at all discouraged. Now that he is sure, he says that he will not have to meet Gans above weight, he counts his chances better than before. Gans weighed in public for the tir6t time today. He invited the newspa per men into his training quarters, stepped on the scales and asked one of the reporters to adjust the weights. He tipped the beam at a trifle under 1334 pounds. The extra ounces he can rub off in half an hour. Herman's superb condition has gladdened the hearts of his backers and many of them are of the opinion that in the Chicago boy Gans will meet one who wiV test all his ring generalship and will fight him to a standstill. On the other hand the champions admirers claim that Her man has never met a fighter of Gans calibre and they look for the Balti more boy to polish off his man In short order. While Herman has a strong follow ing, Gans is undoubtedly the favorite with the big bettors. His record is much better than Herman's and the "Wiz" bettors are laying 2 to 1 that the negro will retain the champion ship. Tit for Tat. Publishers Press. New York, Dcsc. 27.
