INADriAPOLTS, Oct. 16.-A large "boodle"
pnoakage was received by the republican
state committee last iuunday night, a few
meinutes befo a midnight. The package was
about eighteen incheslong and seven inches
thiok. It is not known whether it came
from Washington or fon New York, but it
was taken to the Dennison hotel, the re
publican committee's headquarters, by a
special messenger, within ten minutes after
the arrival of the New York train. Chair
man Gowdy, C. W. Fairbanks, the million
aire candidate for United States senator,
and ex-State Attorney General Miohener,
Dudley's law partner, are staying at the
Dennison. The messenger, who seemed to
understand the situation of the room', took
the paokage to Fairbank's room. Within
two minutes Gowdy and Miohener
were in Fairbank's room. Tile mes
sanger left then immediately. A stranger
went up to Fairbanks' room without in
qui iung for it. He carme out at once. As
soon as he reached the street another
stranger would call and depart immediately,
and then another st anger would follow.
This was kept up until four o'clock in the
morning. In all fifty-seven men called for
the "boodle," which was taken out to the
counties.' It is generally believed that the
package contained $100,000. and it is sup
posed that this is the contribution that
Fairbanks promised to raise in the east if
the republican committee made it possible
for him to reach the senate by wiping out
the apportionment laws of the state.
That a gigantio scheme to corrupt the
voters of Indiana is now under way there is
no longer any question. It is being engi
neered by a man well versed in political
trickery in all its forms and phases, and
that man is Louis T. Michener, ex-attorney
general of this commonwealth. It is not
by "blocka-of-lver" methods that Michener
will endeavor to throw the electoral vote of
this state to liar. ion. One of the best
election laws in the union n akes a repeti
tion of this piece of scoundrelism an rmpos
sibility. To beat this came election law. if
possible, however, is Michener's intention.
Michbener will buy voters, but the terms of
the purchase will provide that instead of
voting they shirll remain away from the
polls. This is the only way in which the
provisions of the election law o:n be suc
cessfully violated.
The ex-attorney general's plan to pull
Inditaa into the republican coUlmnl is a
very simple one. It is his intention to
make a tour among the co porations of the
state, and where the managezrs the eof are
favorable to Harrison he will supply the
foremen of the estabhlehnent with a sufli
cientsum of money to ernable them to pay
each employe undle them $10 for working
on election day. Of course, in some estab,
lishments a few republieans may be found.
and they will also have to be paid in order
that suspicion may not be aroused.
The same scheme will be worked in Illi
nois and several other western states, al
though more attention will be given to In
diana than any other state.

they relate to business matters, illogical
and absurd.
We deny that there has been, or is likely
to be, as a result of th:: extreme protective

We stigmatize the principle involved in

in tne direction of feudalisem, suaversive of
individual prog ess, which is the founda

as leading to the creation of a new element

A statement of fiocts is appentled to the

If we must have protection let us see to it
that it protects the moan who works."

New YOiK, Oct. 16.-Postmaster General
John Wanamaker and Chairman Carter
have introduced a regular bargain counter
scheme in the United States postal service
to save many dollars for the republican
national committee. It is just the kind of
a product that would be expected from two
such "thrifty" fellows at a trade as Wana
maker and Carter. 'The fact that by it the
partisan use of the postal service is made
clear will not disturb either of these wor
By an arrangement between the two, the
republican campaign tiet book is being

Coot, at the pound rate, as second class
The rate of postage to publishers of serial
publications is one cent per pound. The
rate on t anrsent magazines or periodicals,
in which category the text book belongs, is
one cent for each four ounces.
To ci culato the text books at one quar
ter of the expense a compliance with the
law would entail, cralty Mr. Carter, with
the assistance of the postmaster general,
has made the text book a number or issue
of an alleged series of publications dubbed
"The Voters Library," and is sending this
and other malter out as serial publications,
although they are in no sense serial publi
cations in the meaning of the law.
It is a characteristic Carter- Wanamaker
trick, a combination of bargain-counter and
a "smart" horse trader. Such mean little
bits of moves as this are disgusting a whole
lot of decent republicans. By the mere
christening of all republican campaign
documents "The Voters' Library" hundreds
of dollars that should have gone to the
government will be saved and possibly
turned over to "Dave" Martin.
The postofice is being made a vast re
publican agency. Not only must all the
postal employee pay the republioan na
tional committee for the privilege of keep
ing their linces, but the whole postal ser
vice is being used for partisan pulposes.

Two $1,000 Notes.
NEW YORK., Oct. 1.--Domingo L. Ilniz,
consul general of Ecoadok who was ar
rested on the charge of forglni the name
of GOstav Preston, the Boston merchant
and vice conenl, to two notes of $1,(000
each, was brought before the police court
to-day. The proceedings disclosed the fact
that Ruiz. who is in his dotage, is the vio
tim of a band of conspirators who fleeced
him out of $30,000, and in greed for more
induced him to indorse two $1,000 notes
bearing the forged sianature of Preston.
The principal in the conspiracy is said to
be Mrs. Bertha Laws, his adopted daugh
ter. Itniz became acquainted with the
Laws women through an advertisement
that she answered when he was looking for
a housekeeper. She was then known as
Miss Bertha Kriandslat. of Stockholm.
In the course of a few weeks she per
suaded Ruiz that she was his daughter
by a former mistress. Raiz finally adopted
her as his daughter. This led to an es
trangement with his family and he went to
live with the Laws woman. Later Bertha
introduced Wm. Laws, a bookmaker and
general sporting men, to her "father" as
her "husband." Ruiz lavished $30,000 on
the woman, but she needed more, and act
ing under her guidance, Rtui called on
Vice-Consul Preston, at Boston. and re
quested the loan of $3,000. Preston cheer
fully complied and Kuni and his adopted
daughter returned to New York, and she
proceeded to spend the money, which did
not last long, however. The conspirators
then concocted a scheme to raise more.
Raiz states that in August Mrs. Laws
brought to him the two $1,000 fo' ged notes,
and said Preston, knowing the consul gen
eral was embarrassed, had sent him
by mail two notes. Ruiz never
suspected them of being forgeries.
and at once sined them. A man named
Simon Epstein advanced money on one of
the notes, and when it was pronounced a
forgery, he foreclosed a mortgage, which
had been given to protect him, on furniture
in Mrs. Laws' house, and had the consul
general arrested on the charge of forgery.
Owing to the absence of important wit
nesses the case was adjourned till Wednes
day. and bail was fixed at $2,000. The con
sul's'son offered security, but the justice
could not receive it. To-morrow, however,
the money will be denosited with the city
chamberlain, and luiz will be released. A
warrant was issued, and Mrs. Laws was ar
resto.,to day.
The Charge Made by a Cheyenoe Woman
Against an English Itl nhand.
NEW YORK, Oct. 16.-Charles A. White,
who claims to be the representative of the
London Illustrated News, is in police head
quarters charged with grand larceny by his
wife, who was formerly Mrs. Nagle, daugh
ter of a wealthy n.erchant of Cheyenne,
Wyo. Acco:ding to White's story of the
aflair he met Mrs. Nagle at Hot Springs,
Ark., in the summer of 1091, and they be
cane interested in each other. He finally
made the woman whet he termed a
"business propositiron," atnd offered
to marry her for $100.000. He went
to Europe and during his absence
corresponded with Mrs. Nagle, who decided
to accept the offer, and so informed White
by mail, according to the story. lie
returned to America and proceeded to
Cheyenne, where they were married. Pre
vious to the ceremony an attorney drew up
a regular contract in which the bride prom
ised to settle upon White the amount he
asked for. White esars she paid $25,000 in
cash. but still owed ;75,000, which she was
unable to raise, and he therefore took the
sonorities which caused his arrest.
According to Mrs. White's story, the
prisoner rbtained secnrities and bonds
worth $150,000 from her by means of vio
lence and fraud, and also i ractically ab
ducred her 16-year-old son. It is said that
shortly after the marriael White abused
his wife and comloelled her to sign mort
gages on various pieces of property, besides
lorcing her to endorse a note for .75,000,
payable ninety days after date. lie then
left his wife, taking with him stocks and
bonds belonging to her valued at $40,000,
and on his arrival here converted them into
cash and kept the proceeds. White also
disposed of the mortgages signed by Mrs.
White, but an injunction granted in Chey
enne prevented the transfers beingoflicially
recorded these.
Sheriff Kelly, of Cheyenne, who is hero
with requisition papers, says as soon as
White learned that the o('sCle ne uolies had
complained to huperintendent Byrnes
about the detention of young Nagle, he
promptly pat the boy on a train and sent
hlm to Rock Island, Ill, where the boy's
g andmother lives.
'Theb case was brought to the attention of
Ihe police by a telegramu fromn Cheyenne
a•kung for White's arrest and requesting
them to secure the boy, Goourgu Nagle.

Nrw Yo.a, Oct. 16.---Mrs. Victoria Claflln
Woodhull Martin, candidate of the woman
suffragists for president of the United
utntes, arrived this morning on the steamer
Etruria from her English bome. Her hum
band, John BIlrdulph Martin, the London
banker and World's fair oimmisnioner
from Grent Ii itarm, accompanied the pres
idential candidatie. They were driven to
the residence of Mrs. Martin's mister, Mrs.
Dennis O'llalleran. Being interviewed,
Mrs. Meatin said she was eager to step
once more upon the platform after alxten
year's retirement, and preach the gospel of
humanitarianism to every character. To
night sie and Air. Martin left
for Chicago to attend the World's
fair dedication oeremonies. Immediately
After these are over arrangements will be
completed for campaign speeches, which
Mrs Martin will deliver in Boston, New
York, l'hiladelphia, Chicago and other
large cities.
Mis. Martin, before leaving, gave out for
publication her letter accepting the nom
ination. It is addressed to AnnalM. l'a, ker
and others. The letter begins by stating
that the nomination upon women suffrage
platform commends itself to the writer,
especially as the isone is one which was
originally raised and advocated by her as
long ago as 1870. Mrs. Martin then quotes
at length from her addresses delivered
during that campaign, in which she argueq
that the fourteenth and fifteenth amend,
ments to the constitution permitted thq'
right of suffrage to women, and she earn-.
estly commends all good women to persist
ently demand their rights. She next pro
ceeds to discuss at some length the method
by which the evils affecting society can bg
corrected. She sees no salvation except
through an almost entire revision of the
basic laws of government. Ehe says:
"Even the constitution of the United
States itself, one of the most modern gov.
ernmensal characters of the world
is, you may say, a relic
nof old institutione." Further onr
shbe says: "It is becoming just as neces
sary to consider the important subject of
breeding intelligence and physical culture
in the human race as it is in inferior ani
males. In order to accomplish such results
new regulations must be proposed for soci
ety. We must surround motherhood with
the prouer conditions of an enlightened
age. It is to women, therefore, that we
look for the regeneration of mankind.
The injury to wdeaen. through taxation
without representation, is only the begin
ning of a series of wronus and persecutions
to wuich the sex is subjected. I am not
an advocate of woman's rights in the sense
of unsexing woman. Woman's vote is the
only great weapon of reform. It
would settle the liquor question and with
woman in polities and saloons out of poli
tics what may we not hope for. But I will
not dilate tu ther; simply presenting a list
of sorme of the proposed reforms
under consideration in the humanitarian
platform: reuenue and tariff retorm; tri
bunals of healtu; free courts of justice for
the poor; bureaus of a.nthropology con
nected with every police station; labarato
ries for the analysis of imlpu.e food and
liquids; woman suffrage; a scientifio re
organization of the cri mnil code; improved
dwollingK for the pror: labot tribunals for
arbitration; the arietoorar y of blood."
