EDWARDS could —and he can’t —he’d be glad to win even by not more than one-half of one per cent. EF JEWETT doesn’t make a better hog raiser than he has a mayor bankruptcy proceedings will be in order by and by. ISN’T IT ABOUT TIME for some of those super-critical senators to negotiate a separate peace with the president? NOW’S A GOOD TIME for nervous candidates to consult the ouija concerning events destined to transpire next Tuesday. AS WE WRITE the silent orator flashes: “Make Indianapolis courte ous. Say thank you. We want Indianapolis to be known as the world's most courteous city. . > . Say thank you. SATURATE \ OUR SELF." What’3 that? COINCIDENT with the appearance of pictures showing Jack Dempsey with a Charlie. Chaplin mustache we read that Mrs. Maxine Dempsey says she surely will testify against “Dare Devil Jack’’ when his slacker trial come up. Serves him right. The Penal Farm ‘lnvestigation ’ It Is rather difficult to understand Just what Gov. Goodrich expects to accomplish by the appointment of a committee consisting of Dr. C. P. Em erson, Judge Alonzo Blair and Judge James P. Hughes to investigate charges of improper care of prisoners at the penal farm. This penal farm has been one of ‘‘pets’’ of the Goodrich administra tion. The governor himself has declared that he has paid particular at tention to it. He has also, in advance of any investigation of numerous charges, taken occasion to inform the public that he regarded the author ities who operated it as being beyond any suspicion of misconduct Having so determined the force of charges which have been made con cerning it, be now, of his own volition, names a committee to investigate it. The members of the committee are men of good standing in three separate cc mmunities. But no one will ever accuse either of them of being unfriendly to Gov. Goodrich. , The governor does not make public what procedure he expects these three investigators to follow, nor does he tell by what authority they are to investigate, noi* does he define the scope of their investigation. The inference is plain that having “whitewashed’’ the penal farm him self and found that no one was convinced by his own statements he has appointed three friends to substantiate his own findthgs. We trust that neither Dr. Emerson nor the two Judges will be so short sighted as to serve the governor in this capacity. For if this committee does conclude from any kind pf an investigation that conditions are not as they should be at the penal farm it will have to put its conclusions up against the conclusion of the governor from whom they derive the power to investigate. m And if it concludes that conditions are perfectly proper at the penal farm it will have to put its conclusions up against the popular opinion that was prejudiced otherwise when Goodrich said things were “all right” at the penal farm. In neither event can this committee be expected to probe back into the days when, with Goodrich’s knowledge and consent, penal farm prisoners were being sent to work on the property of the Globe Mining Company, the company that had given Goodrich stock “for services.” No investigation of the penal farm that does not include the paroling of penal farm prisoners, the hiring of them to favored coal companies and the actual facts as to their presence on the farm in accordance with the judgments of the various courts will be regarded as anything but a Good rich inspired “whitewash” by a disgusted public. Are the three Goodrich designated “investigators” ready to hear the evidence on these things? When they are The Times is in a position to refer them to some documentary evidence that will prove very interesting. Why Not the ‘Antis’? We know of no good reason why the “anti-Jewett” organization in Marion county should not have representation on the primary boaids as it demands of Harry Hendrickson, republican county chairman The “antis” are qualified to be board members The “antis” are republicans. Their presence on the boards can not, of itself, prejudice the chances of any candidate for the nomination. Among these “antis” there are republicans who feel that unless the "antis” are represented on the board the votes cast for candidates who re fuse to wear the fetters of the organization will not be counted as cast. There have, in the past, been incidents that would form a reasonable basis for such a conclusion. Certainly, if the “antis” are refused representation on the primary boards there will be good grounds for them to believe that such representa tion was refused for no other reason than that the affairs of the boards are to be conducted in an improper manner. For what other purpose should Hendrickson insist on having the boards constituted solely of his political friends? Let Them Fox Trot! A zealous guardian of public morals has decided to make Maryland a safe place in which to dance. And so he has introduced—he is a legislator, by the way—a bill into the house of delegates making it unlawful for any Marylander to Indulge in “square dances, round dances, fox-trots, shimmying, jazzes, or any other kind of dancing in the counties comprising the eastern shore.” This bill is almost on a par with the one Representative Dynes of Marion county introduced In the 1917 Indiana legislature to license cats. Poor Marylanders! While the "new” dancing goes on all over the world they must Yefrain from all terpsichorean tendencies. The beautiful eaotem shore, beloved of the Colonials, home of the terrapin, scene of a thousand novels —its youth must be denied the jazz. Shucks, sayeth we. Didn’t their ancestors ride to the hounds; why not let ’em fox-trot? The United States and Armenia Uncle Bam, that hard-headed character supposed to typify this Yankee republic, is reported to be sorely puzzled over the Armenian situation. Washington dispatches say this government is reluctant to take the mandate over Armenia. The allied supreme council, it seems, has decided to offer tho Armenian mandate to the United States and ask President Wilson to fix the bound aries of that newly recognized nation. And so Uncle Sam is scratching his head. The dream of eastern sway that intoxicated minds from Alexander to Napoleon, and infected even the kaiser's mentality, has never been par ticularly attractive to that level-headed individual, but when it comes in the form of a pathetic appeal to succor the weak and oppressed the tempta tion is a hard one to cast aside. Armenia, herself, asks our protection as a mandatory. Can we wash our hands of responsibility for the protection of the peo ple of the near east from the unspeakable misrule of the Turks? The president’s views are well-known. He holds that British fear of a holy war is groundless, and that the arguments against permitting the sultan to reign in Constantinople are much stronger than those in favor of his remaining there. Expulsion of the Turk from Europe is, therefore, the first recommendation of the president. There can be no question as to the genuine interest of America in Armenia. We feel that the civilized world expects liberal treatment for That poor little country which suffered so much during the war. Its boundaries should be drawn in such a way as to recognize all the legitimate claims of the Armenian people. And If Uncle Sam decides to accept the mandate over Armenia the world can rest assured that American.--power - is adequate; its record clean awf"tt* motives above- suspicion. • - .
