A number of the Republican candidates
for Congress were in the city last night
and held a conference at State committee
headquarters with Chairman Hernly and
Colonel "W. T. Durbin, the Republican can

of the Eighth district, and C. B. Landls, of
the Ninth district.
The conference lasted until nearly 12
o'clock. The visitors all brought good re

when the campaign should open, but no
definite decision was reached.

A Number of the Republican Speak

A number of the Republican candidates
for Congress, while waiting until It was
time to attend the meeting of candidates in
the state committee rooms last night, were
about the lobbies of the Denison. George
W. Cromer, of the Eighth district, declared
that he would be elected by a plurality of
3.0Ü0 this time. Two years ago hlä plurality
was 1.4. "In the Eighth district," he said,
"neither side is wild over politics yet. Men
have made up their minds how to vöte, and
arc now disposed to give business a chance
until It Is tlm to open the campaign In
earnest. The Republicans of the Eighth
district will stay in line and will get some
accessions from the Democrats."
Nathan Powell, of Madison, the recently
i omiimted candidate for Congress in the
Fourth district, declares he is getting
ready to make a hard fight against his
opponent, Francis Griffith, of Vcvay. "Be

James E. Watson, of the Sixth district,
had his utuial smile of satisfaction when
asked about his district. He says he read
Bryan s notification speech carefully and

is untenable, and the people will not

MR. OVERSTREET IN TOWN
HE THINKS DEMOCRATS "WILL
CHANGE PARAMOUNT ISSUE.
They NVI11 Take Up Trat Next nnd
Gradually Fall Bnck Upon
the Silver Question.
'In my opinion, before the end of the
campaign the 'paramount issue of so
called imperialism will be the third horse
in the race," said Representative Over
street at the Denison Hotel last night. Mr.
Overstreet was seen by a Journal reporter
a few hours before his departure for Chi
cago on the midnight train. "The Issues
of trusts and finance will both pass the
paramount' issue before the campaign is
over," he continued, "and in my Judgment
the money question will be the final and
most Important issue in the struggle and
the one upon which tho outcome will hinge.
"The Issue of imperialism is a fictitious
and false Issue. It Is only foisted for the
purpose of cloaking the real question which
Mr. Bryan has always had so close to his
heart. Nobody Is in favor of imperialism,
and where all are opposed to an empire
there is no fear of one being established.
It is mv belief that before the campaign
has made much progress the absurdity of
the so-called Issue of imperialism will bo
fo apparant that the Democrats will of
their own accord practically abandon it
and take up the issue of trusts. If it were
not for the fact that the Republicans are
quite as much opposed to trusts as are the
Democrats, an issue might perhaps be
made of this question, but since both are
epposed to commercial combinations to the
prejudice of legitimate trade there is little
room for an issue to be formed.
AN UNFORTUNATE RECORD.
"But even upon the question of trusts,"
said Mr. Overstreet, "the Democrats will
have 'hard sledding,' because they have an
unfortunate record qf their own to defend.
Mr. Bryan himself has made a record upon
the question of trusts which his friends
will have difficulty in explaining in view of
the present declarations of their party.
"While Mr. Bryan was a member of Con
gress the question was brought up, and he
in person introduced a bill seeking to with
draw tariff privileges from articles which
were claimed to be controlled by monopo
lies. The bill went before the ways and
means committee, of which Mr. Bryan w-as
a member, but he never found time to pre
sent the measure to the full committee,
and, as a matter of fact, it never was con
sidered by that committee, although the
Democrats at the time were In the ma
jority. Not only that, but the Democrats
appointed a committee to investigate the
subject and to report to Congress the
proper steps to take with reference to the
solution of the control of monopolies.
"Unlike the committee which formulated
the gold standard legislation, this Demo
cratic subcommittee of the ways and
means committee had its expenses paid,
and the government was subjected to an
outlay of something over $12,000 to provide
the members accommodations and pay
their expenses during the investigation of
"After wrestling with the problem several
months the committee reported, making no
recommendation except commending the
question to 'future congressional action
By that recommendation the members of
the committee admitted their inability to
grasp or solve the question..
"These things are of record," said Mr.
Overstreet, "and when the trust question
shall be pushed ahead of the 'paramount
Issue,' In my Judgment the Democrata will
be so embarrassed that they will be
oDiigea to nedge even upon the trust issue.
GRAVITY OF QUESTION.
"The Republican party on the other hand
admits the gravity of the question of
trusts, but undertakes to treat It In a
practical, straightforward manner. We
sought at the last session of Congress to
pass an amendment to the Constitution giv
ing Congress complete power to deal with
the question, but the Democrats voted
solidly against the measure, and because it
required a two-thirds vote it was lost. The
Republican party believes in treating the
trust question in the more practical way in
which it treats other questions, but the
Democratic party has opposed this charac
ter of legislation. They can hardly, there
fore, expect to make much headway upon
the issue of trusts In this campaign.
"Consequently, there remains but one
Issue and that is the money issue. Mr.
Bryan's election would mean a repeal of
the gold standard law. It would mean
legislation favoring the coinage of silver
at the ratio of 16 to 1. This, in my Judg
ment, will be the final and decisive issue
upon which the campaign will be fought.
"I do not believe the American people, in
the light of the history of the past few
years, will reverse themselves upon this
financial question," declared the repre
sentative with emphasis. "Upon this Issue
now rests the business of the country, and
to change the money standard would be not
only to destroy business, but also to run
the risk of a repetition of the panic of
TO INSURE STABILITY.
"The Republican party has endeavored
In a courageous manner to permanently en
graft the gold standard upon our statute
books," continued Mr. . Overstreet, "and
thereby Insure stability to our business.
Democratic success this year would mean
necessarily the overthrow of that legisla
tion. The financial law passed by us last
winter has been working admirably, and it
has been demonstrated beyond all question
that a large measure of the present pros
perous condition of the country Is due to
the stability given by the enactment of the
gold standard law. Our bonds are floated
at a lower rate of interest than those of
any other country and there is less dis
turbance in business circles by reason of
the question of the standard than we have
ever had. The recent offer of American
financial institutions to float a British loan
strongly indicates that we are rapidly be
coming a creditor nation. The fictitious
issue of imperialism and the Insincere
declamation against trusts will not enable
the Democrats this year to hide from the
voters the greatly increased volume of
business of the country and the stability
insured it by the financial law passed by
our party last winter. The McKinley ad
ministration, with its record of re-established
confidence, increased business and
sound finance, Is now upon trial and I can
hardly believe that the voters of the coun
try will fall to realize the importance of
the continuance of these conditions by a
continuance of Republican control."
Mr. Overstreet was asked as to his plans
for the future. "My work in connection
with the congressional campaign commit
tee." he replied, "requires all of my time
and will until October. I can't say at the
present time when I will be able to take up
my personal campaign in this district, but
in all probability not before October. I ex
pect to be In the district as much as I can
consistently with my work on that com
mittee." Rurglara Work at Night.
The works of the Aetna Cabinet Com

telescope, a coat and vest and a few
stamps from the money drawer were taken.
The Monarch Laundry at Georgia and

the night, a window on the Missouri street

MUST HAVE THE FACTS
REPUBLICAN COUNCILMEN WILL NOT
ACT IN THE DARK
The Financial Condition of the City
Dlscusaed at nn Informnl
The financial condition of the city of
Indianapolis, present and prospective, was
the subject of an Informal, but none the
less spirited discussion by several members
of the finance committee of the Council
last night. The councilmanlc conference
hastily called by Mayor Taggart yesterday
morning started the talk. Evidently some
pretty pointed questions were asked the
Mayor during the conference, in an effort
to induce him to drop his usual method of
ambiguity and circumlocution in dealing
with important questions and come right
out and say just what his real opinion of
the condition of the fire department is.
Mr. Taggart was asked if ho thinks the
fire department is really in bad shape, to
which he replied. "Oh, yes, it is in very bad
shape indeed." This seemed strange in view
of the fact that the Mayor and heads of
departments only recently declared that
the Indianapolis fire department ranks with
the best in the coutry. This deterioration
appeared to the finance committee to be
THE REAL TRUTH.
"Now the real truth of the mattter, it
would seem," said a member of the com
mittee, "is that all this talk about the fire
department being so run down and in such
terrible state of Inefficiency is largely ex
aggerated. The talk about appropriations
for the City Hospital, for market improve
ments and for increasing the efficiency of
the fire department Is all very well, but we
Republicans say, 'Gentlemen, wait until the
estimates for the ensuing year arc sub
mitted, so that we can see just where the
city stands. We want to conduct the af
fairs of the city of Indianapolis hereafter
on a sound business basis. We want to
have done with groping in the dark and
making temporary Iohiis ad libitum.' "
Another thing the finance committee of
the Council opposes according to its mem
bers is the issuing of bonds for anything
except permanent improvements. As an
example, they cite the proposed market
Improvements. The revenues derived from
the city'n market houses, they assert,
amount to something llko $20,000 a year.
"It does not look like business sense,"
said one member, "to fasten an additional
bonded indebtedness upon the city to pay
for improvements for a department which
yields such revenue. We do not believe
in issuing bonds for the payment of run
ning expenses, either. Such items should
be met by temporary loans, which indebted
ness should be provided for in the next tax
levy. It is suspected that Mr. Taggart
has not been perfectly candid and above
board with the Council, and that he wants
to keep the city's real financial condition
concealed as far as possible until after the
campaign. "We believe the time has come
for assuming a 'right about face position
in the conduct of the city's business. There
Is no disposition on the part of the Re
publicans of the City Council as has been
charge to deny proper aid towards secur
ing needed improvements In any depart
ment of the city government. All we ask
is that a little time bo given us to appre
ciate the full extent of the city's stringent
financial condition. What is the use of
making temporary loan after temporary
loan, or successive issues of bonos, when
by waiting say forty days we can have all
the facts before us ani then be in a posi
tion to act intelligently. The 1st of Sep
tembernot twenty days off the controller
will submit his report of the estimated ex
penses of various departments of the city
for the ensuing year. Then the question of
how great or how small -the tax levy must
be and how much of a temporary loan will
eb required to tide the city over until the
taxes come In can be. settled in a rational
CONTROLLER S REPORT.
Another member of the finance committee
called attention to Controller Johnson's re
port submitted last February. "In that re
port," said he, "I find more than $10,00)
placed under such heads as 'miscellaneous
expenses,' 'miscellaneous supplies' and the
like. It occurs to me that the Council has
a right to know what such a large sum of
money is spent for. There has been too
much of the slipshod method in carrying on
the city's business."
Councilman Harold C. Megrew, who is
chairman of the finance committee of the
Council, called attention to that commit
tee's report of July 10, recommending that
the bond ordinance be "killed." "A glance
at that report," he said, "will convince any
lair-mmaea citizen that the Republicans
in the Council have no disposition to do
the mean things which have been charged
against tnem. Take this part of the report,
for example: 'The city has now a bonded
indebtedness of over, two million dollars;
n half million of this amount is due and
payable within the time covered for the
maturing of the bonds in question. In 1Ü24
there will be due, In round numbers, over
one million dollars, closely followed by over
a half million due In 1127. On this vast
amount we are paying Interest at the rate
of from 34 to 6 per cent.; therefore, we
believe it the part of wisdom and business
prudence, as well as our duty, to relieve
rather than add to the taxpaying burdens
of the people, and that every effort should
be put forth and rigid economy practiced at
this time in order to enable the city to pay
off its indebtedness instead of following
the too common custom of issuing new
bonds to pay on: old ones.
MUST BE INFORMED.
"In another part of the report," said Mr.
Megrew, "we said: 'Within sixty days It
becomes the duty of the controller to sub
mit to this body the estimated expendi
tures of the various departments of the city
government for the year 1901; until this
Information is furnished and the Council
fully advised as to the requirements, we
deem it unwise to act with undue haste in
a matter Involving the expenditure of so
large an amount of money, and this an in
opportune time to pass the proposed ordi
nance; besides, your committee is of the
opinion that the larger part of .the im
provements contemplated should be Dald
for out of the general revenues and not by
"There has been a great cry raised
about the proposed action of the Chicago
Board of Underwriters in increasing In
surance rates In this city," said Mr. Me
grew, "and this too U largely erroneous
Doubtless what the insurance companies
reauy intend to do Is to redistrict the city,
or establish a new basis for fixing rates.
For instance, take a building such as a
frame building in the heart of the city, sur
rounded by valuable business bulldine
Such a structure is a serious menace to
adjacent property and the Insurance com
ranles will fix a larser rate for it. which
is perfectly Just and rroper. Wherever
perishable goods or rather inflammable
goods are contained in a building, the in
surance will cost raor". If a building falls
below a certain standard or construction,
the Insurance on it will be higher. If in
certain ways it is better than the standard,
credit will be given to such an extent.
When a general average is struck I hardb
think there will be any appreciable in
crease in rates."
Another Republican member of the Coun
cil suggested that it t?eemed to him a queer
proceeding that the myor should ask for
a temperary loan of $12o,000. with tho state
ment that such a sum would be sufficient
when he knows that $04,000 was necessary
to pay the city's July expenses and that
the controller asks for Jvo.wo and an extra
$22,000 for the Water Company's bill for
August, with September and October ex
penses still unprovided for. except by such
small revenues as may ba paid into the
treasury during those months.
