Ju&iaira Sailg Slimes INDIANAPOLIS, IND. Daily Except Sunday, 25-29 South Meridian Street. Telephones—Main 3500, New 28-351 MEMBER OF AUDIT BUREAU OF CIRCULATIONS. ~ Advertising Office* —Chicago, New York, Boston. Detroit, G. Logan Payne Cos. —“THIS IS THE YEAR”— SOME TIME AGO the News was declafing that the fight in Indiana was Wood against the field. Now it’s between Wood and Johnsop. Be fore the primaries it will be between Johnson and Lowden. THOSE DETECTIVES who arrested two men for taking the winnings of a craps game from another had better be careful. They may have to arrest someone for shooting craps if they go too far. IT NOW APPEARS that in spite of the “can’t be done” attitude of Director George Hitt the school teachers are to receive their well-earned bonus. IT IS MORE or less difficult, even for Mayor Jewett, to explain how an article published on Friday could contribute toward producing an indignation meeting on the Thursday preceding, but the mayor is a very nifty “explainer.” SURE, MR. LEMAUX, the public has an unlimited amount of patience for anything connected with the street car company. Otherwise the pub lic would have protested long ago against the political manipulations that have resulted in the present service. Up to Goodrich Now The brute who assaulted and murdered a 14-year-old girl in this city a week ago is now under sentence to death and has been taken ,to state’s prison to await execution. Only one thing can prevent him from giving up his life as a pro-' tection to society. That one thing is a possible parole, commutation or reprieve from the hand of Gov. James P. Goodrich. We do not know that Gov. Goodrich contemplates any interference with the judgment of the court in this case. But we do know: 1. That Goodrich has pardoned or paroled more convicts than any two governors we ever had. 2. That Gov. Goodrich could see no impropriety in touring the state driven by a chauffeur who was sentenced to Michigan City for life for murder and was paroled for the purpose of acting as a chauffeur for the governor. 3. That Goodrich has released from the penal institutions men who have returned to prey upon society without restraint and who have so preyed upon society that it was necessary to put them under restraint again. As we said several days ago we have, as yet, no assurances that this young negro, whose very breath is a menace to any community, will not, sooner or later, walk the streets of Indianapolis a free man. Will Gov. Goodrich assure the public that he will not exercise his pardoning power in this case as he has in behalf of so many other crim inals? Political Lounge Lizards The lounge lizard of the common or parlor variety is an innocuous ob ject which has no stinger and can do no particular harm.'" He is :i pet, much pampered by persons of little force and non-exerted intellect. But the lounge lizard of politics i6 a menace to society, who oy the very nature of his life not infrequently interferes with those members of Bociety who do think and whose collective thinking is essential to a proper conduct of the government. The political lounge lizard lays back in an easy posture and watches those about him shape issues, fight for principles and create demand for candidates who may be elected. Then he shakes off his cushions, pieens his worthless skin and ofTers himself up to his party as an object of great respectability for whom the party should scurry to the polls. And there by he sometimes gets in the way of men who deserve nominations and prevents men of intellect and ambition and ability from getting on tickets and making real fights for principles. We have had some lounge lizards in Indianapolis politics. There were a great many in the democratic ranks prior to the closing of the entries for the primaries. They used to gather in a steam-heated, secluded corner and between admiration for their silk socks and manicured hands they paused long enough to tell how the democratic party ought to be run. The lounge lizards scattered when the democrats started to name a real county ticket and men got into the lists without their consent or con sultation. Since then they have been running around shaking their worthless heads and predicting that “it is no use.” They are getting fewer every day, but they are becoming more easily recognized by the distinctiveness of the noise they make. Whenever you meet a democrat who tries to tell you that Marlon county and the state of Indiana will not go democratic next November because of the national election, put him down as a lounge lizard. If he were not a lounge lizard he would be telling you that the demo cratic record of the last two administrations is the finest piece of con structive government that this country has ever known and that on that record the party will win the national as well as the state and county election In spite of all the head-wagging that the whole collective specie of lounge lizards can do. When you hear a campaign lie nail it. When you hear a bit of de featist propaganda squelch it. Don’t be a lounge lizard. Bea democrat. ‘She Is Worth It 9 Many of us well-intentioned but somewhat careless men have good wives and we don’t appreciate them. Some of, us have good mother-in-laws, too, and yet we go to a show and laugh long and loudly when the comedian springs ancient mother-in-law jokes. We take the good things in life too much for granted. Sometimes it takes an event such as our wife going on the operating table or our mother-in-law catching pneumonia to jerk us to our true perspective. In Chicago the other day a doctor presented a bill to a hotel manager for sl4 for an operation which had saved the life of the hotel man’s wife. The hotel manager looked at the bill for a moment, then passed it back. Getting his checkbook he w-rote a check for $14,000 and gave it to the doctor. “She is worth it,” he said simply—almost reverently. And she was. Any good wife is worth that much—and when it seems as if we are toeing her, a thousand times more! ‘Pussyfoot’s’ Guess If. as William E. (“Pussyfoot”) Johnson says, in reporting back in America on 2,000 prohibition meetings held abroad, John Barfcycorn will stalk for ten more years in Great Britain, it will be a severely pruned, trailed and railed-in Barleycorn. Nowhere else has booze been more abused. The revolt of conscience and business sense has already begun to • assert itself and will prove irresistible. England will soon see the wonderful benefits America will derive from a sober population. Add industry to our sobriety and our possibilities are unlimited. It may not take the British, who are a sensible people, ten years to perceive the handicap booze places on any nation. ' Who Would Have Thought It? The Lafayette Journal-Courier, whose ownership rather jty-ecludes the belief that it is actuated by political motives, says of the Indianapolis News: “Apparently the News has been so active in the vicinity of the Wood pile that it has aceummulated an assortment of splinters that are now causing it a great deal of uneasiness, not to say anguish and perturbation cf spirit. The voters sometimes play queer pranks on political ax grinders.” PARAMOUNT TO OPEN EXCHANGE Margarita Fisher at Alhambra—Violinists at Lyric Oscar A.
