Gall UP TO PEANUT POLITICS GOVEKXOR HOLDS IP AX ELECTION BOA HI) APPOI.XT3IEXT. Afraid J. E. McCnllooKlt, Democrat, Will Let Sound-Money Democrat) on Ilnllot General Il.irrlxon's Plans. Governor Matthews appears to have got into a right pretty snarl witn the Pop- ocratic State committee over the organiza tion of the State Board of Election Com missioners. The ballot law of Indiana re quires that the board shall consist of the Governor and one representative of each of the great parties, these other two mem bers to be named by the Governor upon the recommendation of the chairman of the respective State committees. Some times ago R. O. Hawkins was named as the Re publican member and confirmed. Chairman Holt, of the Democratic State committee, named John E. McCuliough. McCullouh was, before the State convention, one of the leaders of the sound-money forces, but since that event he has had little or noth ing to say further than that he is In line with his party. Governor Matthews, how ever, objected to confirming him, without giving any reasons therefor. Presumably he feared that when the question of putting the National Democratic ticket on the bal lot sheet comes up Mr. McCuliough might be inclined to give the sound-money men a fair chance. At any rate, the Governor knew that McCuliough could not be de pended upon to undertake any peanut methods of shutting out the sound-money Democracy. y Hehas, therefore, delayed confirming the appointment, but Chairman Holt notified him yesterday morning that the nomina tion of McCuliough would stick. He in terprets the wording of the law to mean tha the Governor is required to appoint the men named to him, and is prepared to stand on that ground, while the Governor holds that he c vn reject the nominations and require that new ones be submitted. In the meantime, the organization of the board has been delayed beyond the usual time, and if it Is not organized very short ly there will be trouble in getting the proper paper and having the ballots printed in time for distribution throughout the State, as required by law. It is claimed that the Governor has a further object in requiring that the Democratic member shall be a man whom he can personally control. It is said that he desires to over ride the precedent by which the clerk of the State printing bureau has always been made clerk of the Election Board, and have the brother of his private secretary ap pointed instead of the clerk of the bureau, Mr. Carter, who is a Republican. Governor Matthews does not propose that any Democrats shall dodge the silver issue this year. Some of the strongest leaders of the Indiana Democracy -made a hard fight for sound money before the State convention and since then have been tak ing their time about thinking it over. Among those are Hon. A. G. Smith, ex-At-tornev-general: Hon. John W. Kern, State Senator, and Hon. John McCuliough, ex-member of the Legislature. A few days ago, the story goes, the Governor called upon Chairman Holt, of the State commit tee, and demanded to know why these menwere not participating in' the cam paign. Mr. Holt did not know and the conference ended thus unsatisfactorily. The Governor then called John Roche ford, chairman of the Pouocratic county committee, to his office and wanted to know what Smith, Kern and McCuliough were doing in the campaign. Mr. Roche- ford had not heard of them doing any thing. The Governor then stated that it was time all these men who had been identified with the gold side of the fight were showing their colors. Mr. Rocheford said that he had verbal assurances from each of them that he would support the ticket, as he also haa from Mr. W. R. Myers. ex-Secretary of State, who had also participated conspicuously in the gold side of the fight before the convention. "Myers is all right," said the Governor. "He appeared on the same platform as me and talked at the ratification meeting." But he was not Satisfied with any word of mouth from Smith, Kern and McCuliough. He wanted to hear them talk out loud and in public before he would be assured of their loyalty. He did not think that thev were needed particularly in the campaign, as there was plenty of others to make speeches and carry on the fight for silver, but these were men who had been honored ty the party m the past and all loyal sil ver men wanted to know where they stood in the fight as a matter for future refer ence. As a result of the conference Mr. Roche ford has notified Messrs. Smith, Kern and McCuliough that he expects to have a nub- lic meeting addressed by them in this city within the next few weeks and desires to know if they will be prepared to speak on that occasion. The date for the meeting has not been set and Mr. Rocheford does not yet know whether the gentlemen named have time to devote to the prepara tion of speeches. AT lilt VAX'S HOME. Most of the Democrats In Ills Church Will Vote for Sound Money. A story has been in circulation here to the effect that the members of Bryan's church In Lincoln were largely opposed to him, and an inquiry upon this subject was made of one of the best-known business men in Lincoln. His reply indicates that in Lincoln people have not been in any wise taken off their feet by the sudden ele vation of the young lawyer in their midst. He says: "I have had an acquaintance of seventeen years standing with the people of Lincoln, and feel that I know the personnel of the membership of the Presbyterian Church of the city with which Mr. Bryan affiliates. I personally know a large number of the members of the church, including many of the sound-money Democrats, who could not be induced by any possible means to vote for Bryan. The church has in its mem bership some of the most prominent and active sound-money Democrats in the State. Oi course, there may be, and probably arc, a number of Democrats in the church who will vote for Bryan, but I am quite sure your informant was right when he said that most of the congregation who were Democrats would not vote for Bryan. A very large majority of the church pfople here are for McKinley. This would es pecially apply to Bryan's church, in my judgment. "All the miscellaneous talk you hear about Bryan sweeping this county, congres sional district and State away from the Republican column is simply rot, and there is nothing in it. You can put this State down, particularly Bryan's home city, county and congressional district, as going the way they always have gone, and with a strong probability of doing a little better than they have done" before. There is no livelier political town in the United States than Lincoln, and it is thoroughly Repub lican. You see countless numbers of Mc Kinley buttons and photographs all over the town probably three to where you see one for Bryan, and every Eastern man that comes here is thoroughly impressed with the enthusiasm displayed for the Republic an ticket this fall. Lincoln is eminently a city of colleges, schools and churches, and If there are any people in the country that can be depended upon to vote for the Re publican ticket this fall, they are those who have brains enough to study and un derstand this money question. The oppo sition we meet with is largely among those who are unabla to read or too prejudiced to listen to argument." TO CONFER WITH 1IAXXA. Chairman Gowily Goes to Chicago to Arrange' for Sneakers. Chairman Gowdy. of the Republican State committee, left for Chicago last evening for a conference with Chairman Hanna, of the national committee. He ex pects to be able to secure for Indiana some of the best speakers on the lists of the na tional committee. The State committee has nothing to complain of in its treatment by the national body in the matter of lit erature. It has been amply supplied, and the matter has been got up in excellent shape. The State has also b-en weil treat ed in the matter of speakers, though the best of the orators have been engaged thus far in the campaigns in Vermont and Maine. CHICAGO HEADUl'AKTEllS. . 6 Chairman Ilynum Goes to the Windy City to Select Them. Chairman Bynum, of the national Demo cratic committee, went to Chicago yester- I day to find a location for the permanent headquarters of the committee. Letters were sent to-day notifying the mem bers of the notification committee se lected during the national Democratic con vention to be on hand for the ceremonies at Louisville next Saturday. The official stenographic report of the convention pro ceedings was turned over to John R. Wil son, secretary of the convention, and will be printed in pamphlet form at once. As th.y contain all the speeches made at the convention, the pamphlet will be widely distributed as a campaign document. Be fore leaving for Chicago Mr. Bynum said he would announce the remaining members of the executive committee after the Louis ville meeting, next Saturday. A POPOCRATIC COXFEREXCE. Assessment of State Xomlnees The Xcw Wingr. A conference of Popocratic managers and candidates was held at the Grand Hotel last night, lasting until about 11 o'clock. It wras attended by candidates Shively, Ralston, Fanning and McXutt; James E. Murdoch, of Lafayette; Sterling R. Holt, chairman of the Democratic State commit tee; Thomas Taggart, ex-chairman; John E. Lamb, of Terre Haute; United States Marshal Hawkins and one or two others. Crawford Fairbanks was invited in, but declined to attend. One' of the chief topics discussed was how to raise money to keep the campaign going.' The State candidates have paid in their assessments wTith a fair degree of promptness, but the collections from other sources have been rather slen der. Mr. Shively was assessed $1,500; Mr. Ralsfon, $2,000; Mr. Fanning, $2,500; Mr. Chandler, $3,000; Mr. McNutt, $2,500, and the minor candidates amounts considerably smaller than these. In all they aggregate about $18,000, but this does not go very far in a presidential campaign. The men sent out by Chairman Holt into the strong Democratic counties for financial aid have brought back word that the State com mittee will bo in luck if these counties do not call upon it for help before the cam paign is over. The national committee promises much later on; but the silver barons have not yet let go and the com mittee has no boodle for the State com mittees. The line of policy to be followed In treat ing the National Democratic party was discussed and it was decided that all speakers should be coached to handle them very tenderiy. While it was true that they were considered traitors to the party and had no business to carry their tight for gold to the extreme of bolting the nom ination, still they were' too big and pow erful an element to be sneezed at and it was thought best to treat them with cau tion. The leaders felt humiliated at the latest break of the Sentinel in getting again trip ped up, in making the absurd announce ment that President Fisher, of Hanover, had changed his pronounced views on the money question, and considered the ad visability of appointing a guardian for the party organ or issuing a public circular, begging the wicked to please quit selling it gold bricks. GEX. HARRISON'S MOVEMEXTS. AVill Return Here About the Middle of October. The plan announced from Chicago a couple of weeks ago, to have General Har rison tour New York State, Ohio, Indiana and some of the Western States, speaking from the rear of a train, was evidently made without authority. In his letters to personal friends here General Harrison has not mentioned this tour. Their advices are that he will break camp in the Adirondacks about Oct. 1 and go to New York, where Mrs. Harrison expects to remain several weeks. General Harrison, however, after taking her to New York, will return here and go to Cincinnati, where he has an ar gument in the federal court set for Oct. 6. It is expected that after his work there is completed he will go to New York and re turn with Mrs. Harrison to Indianapolis about the middle of October. He has not indicated to the Republican State commit tee as yet what time he will be able to give to the campaign in this State. "Coin" Harvey's Xevr Scheme. W. H. Harvey, widely known as "Coin," the gentleman who drew $2,500 in gold out of the Mercantile National Bank of Chi cago last Thursday and deposited it In his own safe-deposit bot out of the way of silver panics and ether disturbances, has struck a new scheme for making money. During the past two months he has been busily engaged in organizing a secret order called "The Patriots of America." He has coJlected the names of a larsre number of silverites and of people who purchased his "Financial School," and has sent to each a printed circular over the signature of n C Cupp, national recorder. A num ber of these circulars have turned up here and a few lodges of the order have been organized where the silver sentiment is strongest. All members are expected to buy Mr. Harvey's new book, which goes under the same title as the name of the order. The circular states that the object ot tne order is to indulge in a study of the financial question in a nonpartisan way and to make free-coinage voters. Harvey will take the lecture field to help the scheme along, and expects to makf his first talk at Indianapolis next Monday night. A Bis; Rally at Eaton. A large rally was held at Eaton, Dela ware county, yesterday under the the aus pices of the Eaton McKinley Club. Fully five thousand people were present and participated in the celebration. Dele gations from Dunkirk, Albany,. Hartford City, Muncie and many other smaller towns of that vicinity were present. Hon. John L. Griffiths, of this city, and John A. Bon- nam, or iiartford City, were the speakers, and kept the attention of the crowd in a most successful manner as they discussed the money question and the other issues of this campaign. An Observation from the Poll. "I have a good detfl of faith in the cor rectness of our poll," said a Republican candidate yesterday. "We have this great advantage over the Popocrats. The Demo crats who will not vote fori Bryan are usually business men who are not in the habit of talking much and do not say much about it. It i& therefore hard for the Dem ocratic organization to spot them. But whenever a Republican is stricken with the silver mania he immediately conceives the notion that he had laid an egg and goes and cakles about it.- Political Xotes. George W. Grubbs, of Martinsville, will speak at the reading room, Haughville, Friday evening. Representative Overstreet will speak at the South Side Republican Club, on Vir ginia avenue, to-night. To-morrow night the Oliver P. Morton Club will give a reception to the Repub lican candidates for State offices. Oliver T. Morton will address the meeting. Chaplain Lozier, now of Iowa, but well known to old soldiers throughout the State, prssed through the city yesterdav en route to fill engagements in Pennsylvania and ei-ftern Ohio. The Chaplain was in Indiana during both Harrison campaigns, and there is a probability of his being assigned to Indiana again. AN OLD FARMER HURT. Stephen Gnllifer, of Pike Township, Thrown from His Hnggy. Stephen Gullifer, an, old farmer of Pike township, was seriously injured in a run away yesterday at the intersection of the Crawfordsvilie pike and the Belt road. His horse became frightened, throwing him from his buggy, owing to his old age the injuries sustained by the farmer are con sidered serious by the physicians at the City Hospital, where he was taken. Foley Declared Insane. Jerry Foley, ?5 Fayette street, the man who was arrested Sunday laboring under the hallucination that he was President of the world, was declared insane yesterday. Roger Whalen, another one of Sunday's arrests, is still in the station house await ing the time for his sanity to be tested. He was the man who sought protection, stating that there was an army of men with par-r hats on their heads who were seeking his life. ReinccWe Finds a. liottle. While County Commissioner Reinecke was away on his fishing trij during the last week he found near Walton a bottle containing a note signed by Harry Burtch stating that the body of the writer could be found above the dam at Aroma. The matter vas reported to the postmaster at Walton f.nd it was 'earned that such a person had disappeared. Frank Krosckeske, who got second place in the rond race, rode a Timms bicycle which weighed twenty-seven pounds. SOME FAST CYCLE TIME TOM DAVID WOX FOUR FIRSTS AXD TWO SECOXDS AT BROAD RIPPLE. Close to a World's Record in One Race Grimes, of llraxil, Won the Road Race. The Broad Ripple bicycle track was in fine condition yesterday, and some first class time was made on it. Tom David, of North Alabama street, easily carried off the honors of the day, winning four firsts ard two seconds cut of seven races in which he was entered. He also went a quarter mile unpaced in :301-5, which is very fast, the first'' eighth being made in :14 flat. All told, tho sport was the finest in the way of bicycle races that has been in this city. Most of the riders were in their best trim, and the track was in much better condition than it has been for any of the other races. It was as smooth as asphalt, but the little sand that was on it made it almost entirely free from suction, which is what makes asphalt so much harder to ride cn than a good gravel walk. David was in fine form, and seemed to win his races with the greatest ease. He made some very fine spurts at the finish, and won in two races ty less than a wheel's length. Alex. Craig, also of this city, was second in the number of winnigs. He got two firsts, two seconds and three thirds out of seven races. He was David's only com petitor, the others having no ch?,?ce against the two speedy little riders. They are the closest of friends, and it is almost as much satisfaction to one for the other to win as for him .o win himself. While there were no reccrds broken there was some very fast time made, and it is not yet certain that the State record was not broken in the second and fourth races in the afternoon. The fourth race came within 3 1-5 seconds of equaling the world's record for a competition standing start three-quarters of a mile. The attendance in the afternoon was real ly more than was expected, but was not what it should have been for such good races. The races had so much competition in Labor-day doings, circus and picnics that it was not expected that there would be a big crowd out. At night the crowd was much less than in the afternoon, al though the racing was equally as good. It was a day free from accidents. In the en tire eight races there was not a fall and not an inch of skin was lost. The trick riding of Clarence McLean, of Cincinnati, was the best that has ever been seen here. McLean is a comparatively new rider in this field, this being his first year at it. but he did some tricks yester day that were remarkable and tricks that have never before been successfully done by any other rider. One of his hardest tricks was riding his wheel backwards (wheel and rider both backwards) for a dis tance of several hundred feet at as fast a trait as the ordinary rider will speed around the city on the asphalt. Those who have tried this trick and found how deceiving it is, can imagine what skill is required to perform it. Jac. Steinmetz attempted to lower the track record for a mile, paced by a tandem, but failed to do so. He made a mile in 2:16. The summaries of the races follow: Afternoon Races. First Race Two-mile open: Starters, Tom David. Carl Cameron, Jac. Steinmetz, Alex. Craig, Mat Paxton, Ed Steinmetz, Sherwood Moore and Clinton Sansberry. David first, Jac.

The White Cycle Club gave its first road race j'esterday morning, which was wit nessed by a crowd of about two thousand people. When the racers first assembled and the time for the start drew near, it did not seem that there would be many people to see it. There were so many other things to attract the attention of the peo ple that they did not seem inclined to go to the north end of the city to see a bicycle road race; but at the appointed time the crowd had swelled beyond the expectation of the promoters of the race. There were sixty-six starters and almost as many fin ishers. The start was made in better shape than in any road race ever given here. There was no trouble in getting off and very few spills. Hal Stewart had the worst fall of any at the start, but he escaped without injury. About two hundred yards from the tape he became entangled with another wheel and went down. At that time the riders had acquired a good speed and Stewart very narrowly escaped in jury and possible death on that account. A rider who was immediately behind Stew art passed within three inches of Stewart's head, but, as luck was with Stewart, the other rider's pedal happened to be on the up turn at that time and passed over Stewart's head safely. Had it been on the down turn there is no telling what the consequences might have been to Stewart. Those who saw the affair shuddered at the close call. Stewai was not hurt at all and resumed the race, a number of riders fell on the course, but none sustained a serious injury. S. M. Grimes, of Brazil, who had a four minute handicap, not only won the race, but the time prize as well, his time being 37:07 1-5. He won both the White and the Outing wheels. The summary, showing the handicap and time of the first twenty five finishers, is as follows: Handicap and Name. Time. 4, S. M. Grimes 37:07 1-5 6, Frank Kroscheske 39:54 4, L. O. Watson 37:57 5, E.

Hamlin and the colored man had some words be cause Hamlin, claiming to be a Kentucky gentleman, felt insulted because the col oied man spoke to him. The men then bad a drink together, and the trouble was sctmingly over, but the negro struck Hfm Iin in the head with the brick, knocking him down and causing the bruises on hid face.

JEWISH NEW YEAR Observed in This City History of Rosh Hnshnna- At sunset last evening the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) was ushered in and observed by special services at all the syn agogues throughout the country. The neiv year is, according to the Jewish reckoning of time, 5657. In the current issue of the Jewish Ex ponent, Lewis X. Dembltz gives an inter esting history of the origin and meaning of the day. He says: "The day called Rosh Hashana, or the Jewish New Year, is like other yearly feasts named and its observance enjoined in the Mosaic law, and that it was ob served at one time is testified to in another part of Holy Writ; but the law says much less of it than of any other holiday, and the historical account of its having beon kept as a feast is hid away In a book with which most Jews are unacquainted. "By the first permanent commandment delivered by Moses to Israel the religious year is made to begin with the month of Abid, which during the exile took the Babylonian name of Nissan. The first day of the seventh month is named in Leviti cus, chapter xxii, 2, and again in Numbers, chapter xxix, as a 'holy convoca tion,' free from all servile work. To that extent it stands on the same ground with the Passover, with the Pentecost, or with the Feast of Booths. The sacrifice for the day is also set forth in the passage in Numbers, chapter xxix. but nothing there in gives to the day a distinguishing char acter." After recording how, as written in the eighth chapter of Nehemiah, Nehemiah and Ezra erected a. wooden altar, and call ing all the people In and around Jerusalem together on the first day of the seventh month, the latter read to them the Law of Ses, beginn;ng at sunrise and ending with noon, dismissing them with the injunction not to weep, but to eat rich food and to drink sweet drink, because it Vas a festi val to the Lord." Mr. Dembitz comments: "Here, then, we find Rosh Hashana not indeed as the beginning of the year, but vs the beginning of a new era in the life of Israel, the day on which the synagogue as a house for teaching and for preaching is born; for the wooden turret from which Ezra read to the assembled .men and women, and 'understanding' children is nothing more nor less than the oldest Al memor, and first Jewish pulpit. The Min hag, which requires the Almemor, or reading desk, to stand in the middle rather than at one end of the synagogue, dates back to this 'first of the seventh month' in the age of Ezra, when the people stood neither in front nor, in the rear of the reader's platform, but on all sides of it." Special services were held last evening at the Market-street Temple, Rabbi Messing officiating. Special music for the occasion was sung by the choir. This morning at 9:30 o'clock there will be additional services, all that will mark the special ob servance in this city. TWO BOYS HELD UP. Three Xegroes Rob Them in West In di una polls. Two fourteen-year-old boys, named Hohn and Milllgan, were held up by three colored highwaymen Sunday night on Division street, near Woodburn avenue, in West In dianapolis, and relieved of a gold watch and such pocket trinkets as they had with them. The matter was reported to tho officers of the suburb, but before they reached the scene of the holdup the robbers were gone. From the description given by the boys the officers in the city say that they recognize the negroes, who had been loafing about the circus grounds in the early ;j;.rt of the evening, and believe that they Tvdl be able to effect their capture if they ate still in the city. A. J. TREAT & SOX'S Fiftieth Semi-Annual Opening To Day. For a quarter of a century and over this well-known house has catered to the tastes of a fashionable clientele, who have long recognized the merit of well-made gar ments. This is a fact that is well on its way to posterity, and as season succeeds season the wisdom of this statement be comes more apparent. The firm was founded when Indianapolis was in its infancy, and, like the city's growth, has been steady and increasing, until it now ranks among the foremost tailoring concerns of the West. Its reputa tion is built on the style and quality of its output, and the fair dealing and integrity of its founder, who has spent his life in the business. . It has always been the aim and purpose of this establishment to brine out all that Is new and desirable in the world of fash ion and to keep in touch with all its whims and fancies. A mere glance along the lines of suitings displayed at full length throughout the store shows that the best markets in the world have been overhauled in the search for the beautiful in novelty and texture. Such an exhibition of woolens is truly won derful, and the scheme of coloring and pat tern is worthy of careful inspection. Mr. Treat, in speaking of the outlook for the fall trade, remarked that a change in prices had been necessary to meet the re quirements of the times brought about by the continued depression in business and that, in consequence of this condition, suits wo:?ld be made from $40 upward, which is a new departure that will be appreciated by many who have heretofore felt unable to patronize this house. Mr. Louis Gray still continues In charge of the cutting department, and has famil iarized himself with all the changes and details of fashion as noted by Mr. Treat during his recent trip to New York and Boston. It will be welcome news to the many friends and patrons of the house to learn that Mr. A. J. Treat has so far recovered from his long illness that he is now able to resume charge of his business.

We have excellent elevator facilities for the accommodation of our customers. The iixtnrcs and other appointments in our building are of the most approved order, calcu lated to insure prompt attention to our patrons. "OUR ASSORTMENT" We believe our assortment, as a whole, will compare favorably with any line in thecit', some possibly even better, and others, per haps, not so strong for the present, but with a view to improve. "OUR QUAIylTlES" In getting up our collection we had an object in view, NOT HOW CHEAP, BUT HOW GOOD. In other words, we did not skirmish around to hunt up the lowest grades of merchandise in order to un dersell others, but always kept one important feature in the fore ground, "Is there service Jn this?" "Will the consumer get the worth of his money?" "OUR POIvICY" We will strictly adhere to the one-price system without any ex ceptions, thereby giving our patrons the assurance that no one will buy of us the same article for less money, at the same time enabling us to mark our selling price lower than we would under the deviat ing system. , "OUR TERMS" We will sell for cash only or C. 0. D., thereby avoiding the of fending of some that we might be compelled to refuse, and yet whose trade maybe valuable, besides which also enables us to sell on a closer margin'than we might if we were to take chances on bad accounts, wliich are inevitable in the credit business. IT WILL PAY YOU TO WAIT, in view of the fact that our goods are ALL NEW, which, with the present state of the market, is quite in our favor, so far as buying at the lowest notch the goods ever touched; and besides, the satisfaction of knowing that you can not possibly make a mistake in purchasing an article that is out of date, that you might in an old stock. That alone would justify you to postpone your purchase for a few days, to get a chance to look at our line before you decide.
