vice elect, although a
Hoosier by birth, Is a scion of
one of the oldest families of the
Old Dominion. The Marstialls of Vir

the great chief justice of that name,
have taken rank with the Washing
tons, the Randolphs, the Lees and oth
er families whose histories are part of
the history of the state and of the
Tom Marshall, as he is called in
diana, Is a worthy complement to
Woodrow Wilson. Like Governor Wil
son, Governor Marshall is regarded as
a good campaigner, and. like the presi
dent elect, he makes his most effective
points in caustic and witty epigrams.
Governor Marshall was born in
North Manchester. Wabash county,
Ind., fifty-eight years ago. His father
was Dr. Daniel M. Marshall, a physi
cian in comfortable circumstances.
His mother, who was Martha B. Pat
terson before her marriage, was a di
rect descendant of Charles Carroll of
Carrollton, a signer of the Declaration
of Independence.
In 1873 Marshall was graduated from
the Wabash college at Orawfordsville,
Ind.. receiving the degree of bachelor
of arts. At college he achieved a re
markable reputation for scholarship,
qualifying easily for Phi Beta Kappa.
After his graduation Mr. Marshall
moved to Fort Wayne and took up
the study of law in the office of Judge
Walter Ods. On the day he was twen
ty-one years old, March 14, 1875. he
was admitted to the bar. Meanwhile
he had settled in Columbia City, Ind..
and he has made his home at Colum
bia City ever since.
A Conspicuous Figure,
It was not long before Marshall be
gan to display unusual legal ability
and became a conspicuous figure in the
courts of northern Indiana.
It was while playing the role of a
country lawyer that Marshall wooed
and won Miss Lois 1. Klmsey of Ar
gola. Ind.. in 1895. He and his wife
have been inseparable companions,
though no children have been born to
Marshall might have remained a
country lawyer but for his sound com
mou sense in refusing to pun for con
gress on the Democratic ticket when
asked to do so in 1S98. He was offered
the nomination, but he said no.
He was urged to run on the ground
that it was his turn to be elected, as
"every other decent Democrat in the
district" had been, but he stood firm
and said that he would not consider
politics as a vocation and would not ac
cept any nomination for a less office
than governor.
Governor Marshall's friends call him
a "progressive with the brakes set."
He has been Indiana's governor since
100S. receiving a majority of 15.000 at
thf* same time that the Hoosier State
went for Tift by 10.000. His election
was all the more noteworthy inasmuch
as in 1904 Indiana had gone Republi
can by more than 85.000.
Hot a Politician.
The governor is a short, slender, wiry
man with a keen eye There is little of
the politician about bim. In fact, from
the moment that he became the nomi
nee for governor be was the despair of
the party leaders throughout the state.
He did his oainpaijming in his ownIt
way. journeying from town to town
with Mrs. Marshall, and calmly tellin
the voters what they might expect ii
they elected him.
In his first term of office Marsha!
was handicapped by the fact that tin
upper house in Indiana was Republican
He made himself so popular with th
people of the state, however, that the
gave him in 1910 a solid Democrati.
legislature. It was then that he too1
stand against Tom Taggart. Deni"
cratic boss of the state, on the que:
tion of choosing a United States sena
torand won out. His candidate. oh
W. Kern, who had been Bryan's rr.
ning mate in 1908, was indorsed by t-.
Democratic state convention and la
elected senator from Indiana.
Some of the more important pie
of legislation enacted during his
ond term were:
Ratification of the income tax a me
Electa Sciorf
Virginia Family
ment through the federal constitution,
a resolution for the popular election of
United States senators, corrupt prac
tice and campaign contribution publici
ty statute, an employers* liability law
on liberal lines, abolishing workmen's
waiver and the fellow servant rule, a
bill authorizing railroad commissions
to fix rates, child labor laws, cold
storage limitations, standardization of
weights and measures, sanitary inspec
tion of schoolhouses, industrial inspec
tion for safety of factories, mines and
railroad, a law making block signals
obligatory on all steam and electric
railways and a bill for making uniform
the accounting of all public offices in
the state.
In the course of many speeches Mar
shall has made clear his attitude on
moBt of the great questions of the day.
The general progressive views, how
ever, do not carry him to the point of
favoring the recall of judges or judicial
decisions. Speaking before the con
vention which indorsed him for presi
dent last March, he said:
"Lincoln held it to be the inalienable
right of an unsuccessful litigant to go
down to the tavern and cuss the court
It is the theory of Roosevelt that it is
the right of the unsuccessful litigant
to go down to the tavern and overrule
the court Bitterness of spirit and in
dignation at what I deem to be judicial
injustice seize me. Even now I am
chafing under what I conceive to be
the unwarranted interference of courts
with my prerogatives. But my sober
judgment, looking to the permanent
good of the people, compels me to in
sist that the courts must'remain free
and untrammeled that we must seek
relief through the remedy we now have
and patiently abide the reversal of ju
Injustice. Until the provisions of
our present constitution with reference
to officials are tried and until graver
evils arise than have thus far arisen
there is but slight demand for the in
itiative, referendum and recall."
As to Bosses and Machines.
More recently, at Port Wayne, in a
speech before the Indiana Editorial as
sociation on "How May Constitutional
Government Endure?" he stated his po
sition with great clearness on the gen
eral proposition of representative gov
"Notwithstanding our boast, our gov
ernment is not of and by and for the
people,"* said he, "yet I make bold to
say that it is still a representative
denioei-acy. Public speakers and thetia.
public press have been giving voice for
twenty years to the fact that this is not
a people's government, with laws to
preserve the equality of mankind and
to give each citizen his opportunity for P
honest success. It has been heralded
and shouted that the bosses are in con
trol from ocean to ocean that their
machines have taken over the politics
and legislation of this country that
the bosses and their machines have
prevented the people from crystallizing
our great ideals into laws that could
be enforced.
"To be sure, we have had bosses
and we have had machine politics in
America. We have had legislation
which, by enactment and construction,
has not tended to promote the ideal of
equality and the opportunity for honest
success. But it is equally true that the
people, if they could only get a chance
to express themselves, would declare
In unmistakable terms their belief that
this system was viciousthat they
would smash the machines, banish the
bosses and select officials who would
always stand four square with the
theories of the fathers."
Some of His Official Acts.
One of the acts that brought Gover
nor Marshall into tbe public eye was
his honoring California's requisition for
John J. McNamara. At the moment
there was a deal of honest doubt of
McNamara's guilt, and it required no
small degree of courage to surrender
the man into the hands of the Califor
nia authorities. Those' who criticised
Governor Marshall for that act at the
time had good cause to revise their

Sunday baseball was another ques
tion with which he had to wrestle as
governor. A bill legalizing Sunday
games passed both houses and went
to him for approval. Marshall was
opposed to Sunday ball, but he took
the stand that his personal views in
the matter should not overweigh the
view of a large majority of the legis
lators elected to make the laws. He
vetoed the first bill, however, because
did not repeal a law already on the
books which made Sunday baseball il
legal. Whereupon the legislature re
drew the bill and submitted it again.
This time he signed it, notwithstanding
the strong protest of the strict church

In the Journal of the Military Serv

published on Governors island by offi
cers of the army, a leading article deals
with the military organizations of Bul
garia, Servia. Greece, Montenegro and
Turkey. The author is Brigadier Gen
eral John N. Allison.
"Once again," writes General Alli
son, "the eyes of the, civilized world
are turned anxiously toward the sick
man of southeastern Europe, who is
surely and sorely in need of the serv
ices of a physician."
General Allison takes up in order the
armies of the contending nations, be
ginning with Turkey. The Turks, ac
cording to General Allison's figures, as
sume to have an infantry total of 37,-
008 officers and 1,222,000 enlisted men,
a cavalry strength of 1.580 officers and
26,800 enlisted men, an artillery
strength of 1,032 officers and 29,380
men and 245 officers and 10,470 enlist
ed men in the engineer corps, besides
a medical corps and a transportation
"How much of this vast paper force
actually exists." General Allison
writes, "what proportion of that actu
ally existing can he made available
for work in the Balkans, is a matter of
pure conjecture. Colonel Brose, late
of the information department of the
German general staff, estimates such
Dumber as 600,000 men of all arms
and this estimate is line*-*]."
War Strength of Allies.
The war strength of the allies Gen
eral Allison places at 680,000 men, of
whom Bulgaria furnishes 350,000, Ser
via 180,000, Greece 100.000 and Monte
negro 50.000.
Writing of the Bulgarian army, Gen
eral Allison points out that the present
great fighting machine was organized
less than eight years ago. The organi
zation is divided into four partsthe
field or active army, the activce army
reserve, the reserve army anb the mili

gar army
in nine divi-
sional areas,feach with a headquarters,"
and these areas knew exactly how
^_/? ^wf5l
fiions were subdivided into districts,
and from each district the organiza
tion was such as to produce at the ear
liest possible moment one fully equip
ped regiment of four battalions.
The Servian army is singled out for
praise by the army officer, as are also
the fighting forces of Greece and Mon
tenegro. General Allison calls the
Montenegrins an intrepid race of sharp
shooters, with an organization so per
fect that it can be concentrated within
a few days, the army being accompa
nied, when it is in the field, by the
wives and daughters of the soldiers,
who carry the ammunition and cook
all of the food.
The Greek army, General Allison
points out. has learned the lesson of its
defeat by Turkey in 1897. and since
that time farreaching administrative
changes and disciplinary reforms have
been adopted, and the present Greek
force is the outgrowth of that transi
Artillery's Part.
Reports from the seat of war agree
on the important part that the artil
lery has played in tbe present war.
General Allison gives much space to
this arm of the service and shows
what each of tbe allied states, as well
as Turkey, has in the way of big guns.
The Turkish artillery comprises field,
horse, mountain artillery and howitzer
batteries, fortress artillery and artil
lery depots. All of the organizations
are part of the Turkish regular army,
and there is no second line of artillery.
On a war footing each field battery has
4 officers and 100 to 120 enlisted men.
The latest available reports give the
total Turkish artiriery strength as 198
field batteries (1.188 guns), eighteen
horse batteries (108 guns), forty moun
tain batteries (240 guns) and twelve
howitzer batteries (72 guns). These
guns are all of the various Krupp
types. The artillery ammunition train
consists of 1,254 wagons.
The Bulgarian artillery numbers
about 13,000 officers and men. The ar
tillery consists mainly of 8.7 and 7.5
centimeter Krupp guns. 6.5 centimeter
Krupp mountain pieces. Krupp 12 cen
timeter and Schneider howitzers. Creu
zot siege guns and 7.5 centimeter Creu
zot quick firers. The number of guns
is 1,154.
The Servian artillery comprises only
Schneider-Canet quick firing guns,
while the Montenegrin artillery con
sists of eighteen siege, twenty-five
field and thirty-eight mountain guns,
four howitzers, fifteen mortars and
eighteen Gatling and Maxim-Norden
feldt machine guns.
The Greek artillery consists of thir
ty-six batteries of 7.5 centimeter
Schneider-Canet, three heavy and six
mountain batteries of six guns u-h.
7.5 centimeter special barrel." Th?
heavy guns are of 17. 15 and 10.5 centi
meters, with two batteries of howit
