In Tiiii nno ,! nuii, The sister state north of the Ohio ! voted upon a question that Is Jto be J submitted to the voters ojt Kentucky 'in November. v The proposition was I whetlier or not the office of superin- tendent of schools, now elecUve. shall be made appointive, In Indi ana It was defeated. It was a shock to those public officials and educational leaders, who claim to have a panacea for educa tional ills in the two amendments which go before the voters this year, when the result from Indiana be came k'nown. To those who have been watching the press of the coun tryside and converse with the In habitants of the rural neighbor hood, the vote was 'what was ex pected. Until the battle for and against the amendments came out into the open, it was amusing to watch the efforts to place political blame for the opposition. The lending Repub lican daily in the state uccused the Democratic press of standing In the way of all progress because the ma jority of the rural publications which are Democratic in this state, opposed the amendments. Whatever guilt there may lie in fighting the proposed changes, how ever, soon was shared by a promin ent Republican, Lliburn G. Phelps, secretary of the Republican state central committee, announced that he bad accepted the leadership of the "antis." Chesley H. Searcy, chairman of the committee, said he was willing to leave the matter to those experts in it, and Is taking no part. It ap pears, however, that certain G. O. P. leaders are piqued that a member of the committee should have be come involved in the squabble. Open fire from within his own party was directed at Mr. Phelps by George Colvin, superintendent of public instruction. lie contended that all of the Republican officehold ers were pledged by their 1919 pint form to the changes proposed, but Mr. Phelps showed thnt Mr. Colvin quoted only a portion of the plat form plauk In his attack, and that far from being pledged to making the office appointive, the plank com mits the party to election or re election - under non-partisan em blems. Governor Edwin P. Morrow pro jected himself into the debute In ad dressing a school meeting In Louis ville. He supports the two amend ments. To demonstrate his lack of partisanship in the matter Governor Morrow advanced the names of five Democrats and four Republicans h" would place upon the board to select the superintendent of - instruction and direct the welfare of the schools. The five Democrats he has select ed are Lewis C. Humphrey, editor of a Louisville newspaper; Morgan iluK'itr, of Bowling Green; Charles H. Ellis, of Sturgls; Mrs. Samuel M. Wilson, of Lexington, Democratic vice'ehiarman of the 1920 campaign, and Henry Berry, Owensboro. The four Republicans selected are R. C. Ballard Thurston, Louisville, his torian; Lem Putnam, Ashland; Miss Belle Bennett', of Richmond, and Luke Dudley, of Flemingsburg. The dispute rages over the merits ot whether or not the amendments will take the schools out of politics. Those who favor them cay they will: their opponents say not. Gov. Mor row insists that their passage is vital to the welfare of the schools. The rural opposition centers about the fa,ct that it Is another move to take from the public the control of its own affairs and to centralize power In an executive.

'hundred and twenty-five names were 'included in a blanket indictment, chanting murder, returned by a Lo- gan County special garnd Jury today.

Ilustil on Killing of Sin-riff The blanket indictment charging those named with being principals and accessories to the killing of John Gore, Deputy Sheriff of Logan County, was based on an alleged violation of the Redman Act. That act classifies such deaths as murder In the first degree. Gore was killed August 29 in an exchange of shots between armed men and dppn'ty sheriffs in the enst ern part of Logan County during the attempted march across that county of a number of men who had an nounced their intention to proceed into Mingo County, and there pro test state martial law invoked sever al months ago. Tint "to Konii'iit Revolution" The special grand Jury further held In the indictment that a "con spiracy to inflict bodily harm and punishment" had existed nal that as "the result of such conspiracy Gore had come to his death." The remainder of the indictments charged "conspiracy to foment revo lution and insurrection," and 'the carrying of weapons In violation of the Johnson Law."
