WHY IS a cabal'lf not to control?
SERGT. RUSSELL reported 200 arrests by his morals squad, but he did
not say a word about that fight in a blind tiger.
BUT, MR. HOWLAND, didn’t Jim Goodrich solemnly promise that
when elected governor he would “take the school system out of politics?
SENATOR FALL is against a humanitarian mandate for Armenia, but
enthusiastic over a commercial mandate for Mexico. Consistency is not a
virtue of the republican party.
.And Why Not, Please? t
The so-called “senatorial cabal” is in control at the Chicago gathering
of the republican party and as it manipulates the preliminaries of the
convention there emanates from those who are not pleased a wail of dis
content. i
But why shouldn’t the “senatorial cabal” control the republican con
Doesn’t the "senatorial cabal” control the republican party?
Isn’t the “senatorial cabal” the republican party?
For the last year the only part of the republican party that has been
in the public eye has been the republican senate. For the months pre
viously to its election the whole country was called upon to support the
republican senatorial ticket for the purpose of “saving” the country.
The republican party waß represented before the public by its candi
dates for the senate.
The republican party won the election by representing to the public
that its “aristocracy of intellect” was seeking senatorial seats.
Since that time the senate has shaped the policies of the party in the
. It opposed the league of nations and declared that in so opposing the
covenant it represented the people of the United States.
It passed the “peace resolution” and in so doing declared that it acted
for and on behalf of the people of America.
It convened with a “mandate from the people,” in the language of our
own Mr. Hays.
Mandates are not cast aside over night.
The “senatorial cabal” appears to be taking itself and its mandate
seriously. <
Why, then, complain, if these chosen representatives of the republican
party insist on controlling the convention of the party they represent?
Isn t the leadership concerning which w e have heard so much praise
recently, satisfactory to the republican party?
The Advertisers ’ Convention
Indianapolis will continue to reap a benefit from the convention of the
Associated Advertising Clubs of the World long after the program is over
and the members have returned to their respective homes.
Advertising in itself continues to exert its influence long after it fades
from a visible sphere into a subconsciously recognized influence.
So it will be with the advertisers’ convention.
The gathering will bring to Indianapolis men of broad vision and in
tense activity whose words and influence will be possible of establish
ment long after they have impressed themselves on their hearers-
Seldom have so many vigorous efforts been made by this community
to impress itself on the minds of its visitors. As is natural among men
who make a profession of advertising there has been a keen, friendly
rivalry in the creation of impressions.
As hosts to the advertising clubs, the local members of the association
have arranged to “sell Indianapolis” to their Visitors. They are engaged
in an advertising campaign having for its purpose the creation of an im
The visitors to Indlhnapolis will respond in a similar manner. They
will “sell Indianapolis 4 ’ on the benefits of good advertising, properly done.
This latter impression will live long, and it is to be hoped that Its
counterpart in longevity will be a favorable impression on the visitors re
garding Indianapolis.
Failure of Wood Money
In an editorial under the caption, “Check Book Candidates,” the New
York World says:
“If there is any sense of political morality left in the American people,
the revelations of financial outlay to influence primary election of repub
lican delegates in favor of various candidates ought to defeat that party
in advance.’’
The World is right, and in this sentence has ably answered the spec
ious plea that the “costly publicity campaign” on the part of Gen. Wood
was necessary to "acquaint the voters with his qualifications.
The real purpose of the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dol
lars in behalf of Wood was not to acquaint voters with his qualifications,
but to get the delegates. '
Here in Indiana Gen. Woods had the support of the larger republican
papers and the great bulk of republican papers. Assuming, for the good
of the newspaper profession, that none of the Wood expenditures was
made to influence these papers, It can not be denied that the general had
tbe avenue through which to acquaint the voters with his qualifications,
and no expenditures in Indiana were necessary for that purpose.
But there were expenditures in Indiana.
Dozens of headquarters were maintain and. Dozens of paid agents
were employed. „
Money was spent in every conceivable way, not to acquaint the voters
with Wood s qualifications, but to get delegations pledged to Wood.
It Is exceedingly difficult to understand just what voters the Wood
managers wished to impress with Wood’s qualifications when they offered
$2.50 apiece for “testimonials” for Wood.
It is difficult to see just what qualifications were sought to be im
pressed on the voters when the Marion county delegation in the state
convention pledged its support to certain candidates for state offices in
order to obtain votes for its resolution pledging the delegates at large to
Common sense tells us that the real movement in Indiana was to get
she delegates and personal knowledge tells practically every resident of
Indianapolis that thousands of dollars were spent in a manner that con
vinced every voter of only one qualification—the ability of Wood to get
money for his campaign.
The World says the revelations ought to defeat the republican party
in advance.
They have already defeated Wood.
In spite of the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dollars in
fhii state Wood got only a third of the delegates and of that third there
are probably not more than four who will continue to support Wood, after
the fiiet ballot at the convention.
Why This Activity?
The failure of the prosecutor’s office to obtain a conviction in the case
of the Riverside concession owners who were conducting the old-time
games of chance should by no means be interpreted as indicating difficulty
in stopping such operations."
The case was lost in police court through inefficient prosecution and
proceedings in police court are by no means the only methods open to
stop this form of petty gambling, if the authorities are really anxious to
stop it
The concessions at Riverside park are under thorough control. Leases
may be cancelled at will and the operators of obnoxious games may be
driven out whenever it is deemed advisable.
Whether Riverside park is made more or less attractive by reason of
ability to win kewpie dolls in games of chance ntight be a question of
some debate.
The police appear to have decided, for some unaccountable reason fol
lowing years of trial of the kmes of chance, that they were not desirable.
The authorities will novr continue their efforts to stop them or admit
that-something other than aversion to them caused the first police effort

The Right Thing
at the Right Time
Your Hostess
Sometime* the last person a- young
woman thinks of when she Is visiting a
girl friend of hers is her hostess, who
is of course not the, girl friend, hut the
Kiri’s 1 mother or whoever occupies the
position of mistress of the house.
Tt may be an older sister, an aunt
or grandmother—but in any event the
visitor should bear in mind constantly
that It Is this one and not the girl
friend to whom she stands in the rela
lion of guest and host.
No matter how careless you are about
consulting your mother in your Own
house you should remember that gooo
breeding demands that when you are
visiting you should always let the host
ess know where you are going when
you leave the house.
I>o not ask any oDe to visit you at an
other house unless you ask your host
ess whether it is agreeable to her.
When a visitor calls to see you
whether a man or woman—always a<k
your hostess whether she will meet him.
tV'hen you are visiting it is extremely
rude to make engagements for parties
to which your hostess Is not Invited.
It may happen that you will meet an
old friend who will ask you to lunch
ton or tea alone.
Usually it is discourteous to adeept
Mich an Invitation, but when you are
juite sure that you could not offend
your hostess By accepting you may ac
cept such Invitations, but always you
should consult her before accepting.
When you have returned home after
a visit remember that It Is to your
hostess to whom you should write to
acknowledge the courtesy extended t<
No matter whether you have visited as
the friend of n daughter of the family
*t is the mother to whom you owe the
little note of courtesy.
—And What They Mean—
To see In a dream many lighted
torches is accounted by the mystics to
be an omen of dazzling success.
To dream of holding a lighted torch
Is said to be a most formidable omen
for young people of either sex, as it in
dicates that their love affairs will turn
out according to their desires. For a
young man a Uieatn of bolding a lighted
torch is a prophecy of victory over ene
mies and of success in life. Also it
signifies that bo will hold the esteem of
his friends and acquaintances nnd that
rich and Influential persons will act to
ward him in a benevolent manner.
To dream of seeing lighted torches In
the hands of others is an omen that
you will discover and thwart some evil
design* against you, and that those w!n>
try to worS you evil will lie punished
In spite of their attempts to avoid the
Just consequences of their acts by de
ceit and'prevarication.
It la not. however, considered a for
tunate omen to see an extinguished torch
held by others, ns that means thlit you
will have to lo>k o\tt sharply to avoid
iho pitfalls your enemies wotfld dig for
Neither Is '.t considered a favorable
omen If you should dream that you your
self hold In your hand an extinguished
With these exceptions all dreams of
torches and good droams ara much to
be desired.
The more lighted torches you see in
your dream tha greater will b your
Dreams of torches apply especially to
young people.-Copyright, 1920.

Where does Indianapolis care for her babies?
A Day Nursery association, 530 West Vermont street, is supported

of a place where working mothers could leave their children through
