A PETITION to enter the presidential primary in Indiana requires 600
names. Jim Goodrich paroled 509 convicts in 1919.
WHEN THE FUTURE presidents summon the nation by wireless
telephony to listen to their messages may we not be excused if busy?
WHOEVER IS shaping the political destinies of James Eli Watson
is throwing a tremendous burden on his friends and depending on a for
bearance that is terribly strained.
THERE WAS in reality no need of Will Adams informing the public
that he is a candidate to succeed himself. His presence everywhere but
in tile statehouse caused people to suspect long ago that he wanted some
Eliminating Watson
Coincident with the announcement that a petition is being prepared
for the purpose of submitting the name of Gov. Goodrich to the people of
Indiana as a republican candidate for president, there appears in the
Indianapolis News an editorial entitled “The Favorite Son Game.” The
News does not say that the editorial was prompted by the effort in behalf
of Goodrich’s boom, but there can be little doubt of that fact, and the man
ner in which it treats the subject is indicative of the real sentiment of even
the most hide-bcund republicans relative to Goodrich’s ambitions.
The editorial defines a difference between a candidate for the presi
dential nomination and a “favorite son.” It says that there are some
“favorite sons” who are innocent enough to believe they are candidates.
It declares that the party managers are not so innocent.
Then, with unusual candor for its source, the editorial admits the
manipulation of presidential nominations by party managers, and declares
that “if the people have made up their minds to manage, rather than be
managed, they nominate the candidate that they really want” and the
party managers sm:le and make the best of it.
"With the wisdom gained by experience there seems to be no reason
why the people should not do their own nominating this year instead of
letting it out to the usual political contractors on the cost-plus con
cludes the News.
The conclusion which this editorial painfully reaches is not without
its error. There is one big reason why the people of Indiana may not “do
their own, nominating this year.”
That one reason is the power of Jim Goodrich, through his strangle
hold on the republican organization, to foist his own name on the prefer
ential ballot to the exclusion, not only of any other Indiana man, but in an
attempted exclusion of any other man in the United States.
And in the furtherance of this scheme to preclude the republicans of
Indiana from expressing their sentiments relative to the presidential nom
ination, Jim Goodrich has had no more able or energetic ally in the whole
state than the Indianapolis News, which now pretends to bewail such a
The republicans of Indiana doubtless will, through the manipulation
by Jim Goodrich of their organization, its chairman and its secretary, be
deprived of any opportunity to express their choice for the presidential
But that unfortunate circumstance will not, in any way, alter the fact
that at least 75 per cent of the republicans of Indiana would wade through
gore for a chance to nominate James Eli Watson for president.

Goodrichism the Issue
The republican party in Indiana must stand or fall before the people of
Indiana next November on the principles expounded by James P. Goodrich
and the record of Gov. Goodrich.
All efforts, and there have been many, to shift the burden of a defense
of the Goodrich administration have failed. All efforts to deviate from or
minimize the importance of what has become known as "Goodrichism"
have failed. The republican party in Indiana must bear the burden of
justifying not only the "centralized’' plan of government, but it must make
the defense of the Goodrich manner of administering the government uDuer
the “centralized plan.’’
James P. Goodrich, as governor and dominating figure in the state
organization, has been powerful enough to commit his party to his own
program. He has been shrewd enough to make his own plans pf govern
ment the plans of his party and he will be in a position before the end of
this campaign not only to write the republican platform, but to demand
that the campaign be conducted with a view to vindicating his mistakes
and perpetuating his control of republican state policies,
k Goodrich is now preparing to head his party’s primary ticket as its
pole Indiana candidate for the presidential nomination. He is preparing
®.o flank Senator Watson with his own candidate for governor in the person
of J. W. Fesler. He is prepared to dominate the whole republican ticket,
even to the extent of nominating Will Adams as reporter of the courts for
a second term, regardless of Adams’ escapade in Chicago,
i With his own name heading the ticket, with the names of his choices
Vor public office flanking Senator Watson, he will be in a position not only
to continue control of the state committee which he now dominates, but to
demand that the national committee lend to him and to Goodrichism all
the support that he desires.
Thus the campaign for Indiana Is a clean-cut issue. It is wholly a
question of whether or not the voters of Indiana in the last three years
have been pleased or displeased by the domination of their affairs by Jim
Goodrich of Winchester. For there has been no part of Indiana’s govern
ment that Goodrich has not directed, no part that he has not controlled,
and no part wherein the administration has not reflected his own personal
desires and influence.
In 1916, when he was a candidate for governor, James P. Goodrich
said: * ' f
’1 want the power. You hold me responsible for the results.”
In 1920, when he was a candidate for further political preferment,
Goodrich is, in effect, saying to those who hesijate to risk party success
on approval of his reco/d and his teachings: 1
"The republican party of Indiana must approve of me and my admin
So be it Goodrich has called for a referendum on Goodrichism. A
republican vote must be a vote in support of Goodrichism.
Only through the support of the democratic ticket in Indiana can the
voters of this state recover their right to participation in their government.
World's Wisdom Increases
i Sir Isaac Newton saw an apple fall and pondered the fact that it went
■down instead of up or sideways. His "law of gravity” became a funda
mental of science. *
Or. Albert Einstein of Berlin saw a workman fall from a roof and
: Bht, unhurt, in a pile of soft rubbish. He talked with the man, who
pPpfcitly had a remarkable mind, for he observed that in falling he did
rnot feiel the pull of gravity as it is commonly supposed to operate.
, Now Dr. Einstein’s new “theory of relativity” has been accepted by
the Royal society of Ix>ndon as a demonstrated truth.
What is the theory?
It Is said that there are not more than twelve men In the world capable
of comprehending all of its phases. It is really a modification of the rules
worked out by Newton. One of its concepts is the rejection of the ideas
of absolute time and space. Beyond the furthermost star is—nothingness!
Dr. Einstein and his fellow scientists do not suggest that the new
hypothesis will affect human life in the slightest particular. The hungry
mind of man has simply reached out a little Into the dense v&t of the
unknowable. Again, the finite and fallible intellect of earth’s wisest ani
mal has added a bit to its meager stock of lore, j
A million years hence that stock will be, somewhat Increased, but in
relation to what will remain unknown the total of all wisdom finally will
remain as a tiny flicker in n universe of . dark.

How to Land a Position
As Reported by B. C. FORBES, Editor of Forbes’ Magazine.
The story of how Henry P. Davison
won his first foothold on the New York
banking ladder reveals the stuff he is
made of. He had quiekly risen fkmi of
fice boy to receiving teller in a modest
bank at Bridgeport, Conn., when he read
in the newspapers that anew bank was
being formed in New York. Young Dav
-TSon wanted to go to New York. He
wanted to go very badly. In fact, lie
made Up his .mind that he must get a
position in this new bank.
Armed with a letter' from one of bis
directors, who knew the cashier, lie took
the afternoon train 1 * to New York and
handed in the letter.
The cashier treated him most cordially
—so cordially that the young man left
Binning, although without any job.
His smiles wore off when he got into
the train homeward-bound and thought
matters over.
But, he was not to be so easily licked!
Next afternoon, when the bank closed, he
again boarded a New York train. Tbe
cashier, although somewhat surprised to
see him back again, accorded him a very
pleasant interview, but explained that it
was out of question to engage an out-of
town man as paying teller—-that was the
office Davison was after. They must

have a man with New* York experience
and of -wide acquaintance. The cashier
was so frank and sympathetic, however,
that for the second time it was a smiling
youth who left his presence.
The homeward journey, however, dissi
pated the smiles. He would try again.
Next afternoon, for the third time, he
started for New York, more determined
than ever to get the place he wanted.
“The cashier has g*ne for the day,”
was the chilling message he received.
“Where does he live?” asked young
Davison, undaunted.
In half an hour he was inside tbe
cashier's home. A servant explained that
his employer was dressing to go out to
attend a dinner. All right, the visitor
would wait.
On entering the room the cashier burst
out laughing. So did Davison, but only
for a moment. He at once got down to
brass tacks. v
He began with all the Intense earnest
ness he felt: “I know I am the man you
want; for paying teller. I can help you.
I feel embarrassed at having to say this
myself, but there is no'one to say it for
me. Give me the position and 1 will try
to seo that you will never regret it.”
The ardor, the sincerity and the per
severance of tbe young man made such
an impression upon the banker that ho
became convinced the choice prove

STOCKHOLM, .Tan. 19.—Some, time ago
the board of the peace congress bf the
nqrth Issued a question to the profes
sors of language at the universities of
different countries in order to ascertain
which language would be the most suit
able and have the greatest prospects
for acceptance as a universal language
for correspondence and conversation,
side by side with the langurfSie of the
country In question. - Nineteen answers
Dave been received up so date, and among
those, twelve are Opposed to the artifi
cial languages—ldo, Esperanto, Volapuk
—and express the opinion that the Eng
lish language has the greatest prospects
of being accepted as the universal lan
guage. Besides this, two have declared
for French, one for German, one for
Esperanto, and three for Ido.
- The professor in Sanskrit and “com
parative language research” at the Lund
university, Nils Elenburg, has made the
following statement.
"For my part, I am convinced that
under present conditions, Dngllsh would
be most suitable, and have the greatest
prospects of beiug accepted ns an in
ternational world-language. It is spo
ken by those two nations, the English
and the American, which, after the vic
tory of the allies will play a leading
political part to a still greater extent
than heretofore. It. is also the trade
and business language mostly used, and
besides, it is the widest spread tongue
over all the continents. The study of
this language would not only serve a
general practical purpose, but also be
come a medium through which a more
intimate knowledge of a literature which,
perhaps, contains the most important
educational value conceivable.”

that Albert Vosburg, ag<yi hermit of this
village who died a weefc- ago, possessed
a fortune which he had hidden away near
the small “chicken coop” shanty In which
he lived, residents have not only demol

oughly examined the grounds in the near
vicinity. \
Vosburg, for the last two winters, has
lived in what was once a chicken coop.
He earned a living by caring for gardens
Ind furnaces and doing odd jobs.
Neighbors provided him with food oc

He was firm In not'hccepting alma. It
