RISK will risk considerable in the primaires, but the man who captures the democratic nomination for governor will not risk defeat. MR. SHANK, it appears, is anxious to rid Marion county of the Good rich- Jewett influences and he doesn’t care who helps do it. THE FACT that the negroes are gambling quietly on the avenue Is not being overlooked, even though the “good government” forces appear to be ignoring it. CLASSIC IRVINGTON is going to awaken some day to find that it al6o has fallen into the clutches of the “sinister influences” that shuffle and cut ’em. PECULIAR, isn't it, that whenever any one has a suggestion about the street car system in Indianapolis, the News manages to find some other city that affords a great “example” for us to follow. NO CANDIDATE for chairman who numbers Ralph Lemcke among his counsellors can expect the support of the democrats of Marion county. The quicker-the Republicans realize this the more trouble they will avoid. McAdoo’s Friends’ Move Nothing could be more thoroughly above board than the action of ' the democratic supporters of William G. McAdoo in placing their petitions to place him on the primary ballot In the hands of Walter Myers. The McAdoo supporters intend that whatever they do relative to entering McAdoo’s name in the primaries shall be done through Mr. Myers, and with due notice by him to the supporters of any other persons whom it may be desired to present to the voters at the primary. Whether or not a contest for the purpose of instructing Indiana’s delegation ensues, it can not be said that the McAdoo followers took an unfair advantage of the friends of others. As the time for the filing of declarations for the primaries comes nearer it becomes more and more evident that there is a Btrong current of public opinion toward Mr. McAdoo. The “favorite son” plea, which was put forth by Mr. Marshall's friends, has failed to counteract that sentiment. The possibility that Mr. Marshall might become president and a candi date for nomination from the whitehouse has not served to deflect support from Mr. McAdoo. This is due to the deep-seated conviction that Mr. McAdoo is the most available democrat for election, and to the fact that the possibilities of the removal, of President Wilson have been waning steadily and are not now’ worthy of serious consideration. Friends of Mr. Marshall are now confronted with a situation In which the responsibility for a primary fight, if there is one, will rest on their shoulders. Mr McAdoo has declared that he will not enter any primary. His friends say that they are willing to abide by his desires relative to uninstructed delegations. It seems to be certain that they will not insist on placing his name on the ballot, provided the pledging of Indiana's delegation to any one else can be prevented. But they are determined that the great sentiment in favor of McAdoo in Indiana shall not be ignored by the pledging of Indiana's delegation to any one else. Mr. Marshall’s friends say that he does not desire to enter the pri mary ?nd that their only purpose in preparing to place his name on the ballot is to prevent any one else from capturing the delegation. The desire of both Mr. McAdoo and Mr. Marshall for uninstructed delegates at San Francisco seems to depend, in a large measure, on the! ability of their friends in Indiana to get together. The McAdoo supporters have made the first move. Mr, Risk Gets Busy The entrance of James K. Rjsk into the democratic race' for the nomination for governor is an indication that things will be "stirring" in ;he democratic party before the primaries in May. Mr. Risk starts his campaign on the theory that candidates who pre ceded him have not “put the pubch” into their canvasses that he believes should be found there. He proposes to talk plainly, vigorously and at length, to discuss the issues, tell where he stands regarding them and leave- the question of whether or not he is nominated to the decision of the democracy as to whether they want a fighter on the ticket. It would be foolish to contend that Mr. Risk does not have some im placable foes in the democratic ranks. It would be equally foolish to assert that he does not have warm friends and admirers. His announce ment is a call to his friends to support those things for which he stands and, in a way, a defiance of his enemies. Mr. Risk is entitled to a fair deal before the democrats of this state. His campaign manager, John R. Jones of Plymouth, knows when he gets a fair deal and when he does not. There is no reason why Risk should not determine now and for all time whether the things he advocates and the stand he takes are desired by democracy. No one need fear that he will be deceived as to the position of Mr. Risk on public questions. Knowing where be stands is one of the best things Risk does, and he has never been afflicted wvith the stage fright that appears to be keeping some of his oppo nents from making their views apparent. The Times hopes and believes that the candidacy of Mr. Risk will have the effect of arousing the enthusiasm of a part of the democratic party that has been staying at home too long. Convictions that are worth having are worth fighting for. The primary is the place to do the fighting, and it is a poor candidate for any office that deplores opposition. Goodrich Still Bosses The position of Gov. James P. Goodrich relative to the republican parly is now clear. He is just as much the boss of it as when he went into the campaign for election as governor, as is demonstrated by his letter rela tive to the special session of the legislature. In that letter Mr. Goodrich makes it plain that if the republican mem bers of the legislature will continue to accept orders from him he will call them in special session to doctor up the laws they passed on his orders so that they will not be quite so obnoxious as election approaches. If they are not willing to take his orders he reserves the right to refuse to call the legislature. There Is in the sending out of this letter an admission that legislation is necessary to party success in November. Gov. Goodrich seizes upon the very evident panic of the republican candidates and leaders and offers to allay it if they will consent to limiting their efforts before the legisla ture to those measures which he thinks should be considered. Indiana had one experience with a gagged legislative session, rgid as was said by ’Edgar Bush, had that session not been Goodrich gagged there would be no need of another special session now. The question is, when will the republican party learn its lesson? Must the republican party always take its orders from James P. Goodrich ? - From the democratic viewpoint it is to be hoped that the Goodrich con trol will continue. For either the republican party must shake off Good riebism this campaign or there will be no republican party to carry on another. Trade With Germany The war Isn’t officially over, but trade with Germany is being resumed. Reports from the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce show how the volume of trade between Germany and America went ahead during the last quarter of 1919. In August, 1919, exports from the United States to Germany were valued at $1,009,820 and imports at $8,693, but in September exports jumped to $8,836,693 afid imports to $1,586,963. October doubled the September trade volume, and November was the high month of the year, exports rui ning over $23,000,000, and imports totaling over $3,000,000. There was a slight falling off from this in December. For the yqar Isl 9 exports totaled $92,761,314 and imports $10,624,229. Mere the Reader Says Mis Say MORE WIDOWS. Editor The Times ; was reading in n Sunday morning paper a widow's opin ion on a railroad man anil the "wage in crease he receives every nine days.” I am a yard braKeman aud tiiiuk that 1 have about the most dangerous work around the railroad and have been rail roading for the last twenty-five years and will say that about twenty years ago railway men were classed as high sal aried men. And I have put In thirty six to sixty hours without sleeping. But today it is different, as I make S5 for eight hours' dangerous work and if this widow had to be out In the rain and scow and wade around like It was Fri day night she would not think we were being overpaid. It Is a .wonder there are no more widows around Peru when men have to work tn all kind of weather and have people that depend on labor for a living come out and try to tell views that they know’ nothing about. A YARD BRAKEMAN. WHERE. INDEED? Editor The Times—l have read your "Wolves of Washington" with great sat isfaction. I am proud that we hnve .me paper with the courage if Ms convic tions. Someone that will expose the hypoerites and imtekraekcrs whose sole purpose In playing such cheap politics is an attempt to discredit the adro'nißtra tlon and gain some small advantage in power. I n,m led to believe that the chief assets and paramount Issue of the re publican party Is principally noise. As so far they have failed to show by their record in congress or the state of In diana why they should lie retained in power. I will admit that since their advent to powtm they have effectually tied the hands of Mr. Wilson and put across one of the most unpopular tax laws ever foisted upon a free people. In conclusion 1 want to ask if this is the reconstruction the republican party so boldly and boastlngly asserted they do. If elected In the campaign of 1918, to the people? I want to commend your paper In the valiant fight for principles. Hillsboro, Ind. FRANK RUSK. Compliments Mr. Taggart In a discussion of the senatorial situa tion In Indiana. I.obert St. Clair, a Washington correspondent for a number of western newspapers, pays a neat com pliment to Thomas Taggart, when lie says: “As for Mr Taggnrf, he already has served one short term as a senator, hence the experience of hla being here and of seeing him on the floor would not be new. But it would he welcome to Taggart’s friends here In Washington. "The truth is that Taggart made a remarkably good senator and he far out stripped the expectations of his friends. Appointed to the senate by Gov. Ralston, he was looked upon by many ns a man who probably would serve his short term quietly, and then go back home md bask in tbs sunshine of the title ‘ Sena tor," the rest of his day*. But he did not do that. He Jumped Into the game down here with a ventrencc, studied situations and facts and handled Its Job In and admirable fashion. It Is known that some of the leaders of the party followed his (fftreer here with the greatest Interest and when he Anally was ready to make a campaign for rr election they gladly put their “O. K.” on him. "Personally, Taggart Is a delightful man to meet. lie is quiet and dignified and he certainly belies the picture of the nldermanlc shaped boss hp I* pic ttired. He started In business life ss a pie counter waiter In Indianapolis, made sale* by being polite and taking an Interest In affairs of folks where he found that he could help them and he has stuck to thoep two things through thick and thin.

While making a thorough study of the human machine in its industrial sur r< endings, the “human engineer" will seek further light regarding tbe worker's home and community environment. Here his contract with the welfare de partment begins, but it should not end until home conditions have been investi gated and the fact determined whether cr not they constitute potentially a casual factor in Industrial accidents. A sick member of the family may cause such uneasiness in the mind of tbi. worker that bo will be cureless and much below par in bis work. It may also be determined If there is unsympathetic uu pervlsion over this man’s work by the ! forerann, A domineering and overbearing for#. -man can do more to reduce output and breed discontent than almost any other factor In an organization. The “human engineer” will not stop at treating the patient and removing tho disabling cause, whether It be due to en vironment within or without the plant.

Students for McAdoo The students of the high school at Warren, Huntington county, held a pri mary last week and of the 110 votes cast, fifty fire were democratic, fifty-four republican and one socialist.
