JwMmra limes INDIANAPOLIS, IND. Daily Except Sunday. 25-29 South Meridian Street. Telephones—Main 3600, New 28-351 MEMBER OF AUDIT BUREAU OF CIRCULATIONS. (Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, G. Payne & Cos. Advertising Offices Vork, Boston. Payne, Burns A Smith, Inc. —"THIS IS THE YEAR”— FOXY JIM GOODRICH worked hard to defeat Watson for chairman of the resolutions committee and may thereby have earned some support from the Star league this campaign. \ NOR WAS THE VICTORY of Senator Watson particularly displeas ing to the members of the National Manufacturers' Association, # AGAIN has it been demonstrated that the only thing the republican delegates have been trained to receive with applause is denunciation of President Wilson. PAYING INTEREST on bonded indebtedness by borrowing money of local banks does not indicate that the street car merger has helped much financially and there are few who will argue that service has been mate rially bettered. • IF PRIMARIES impose a minority rule on a party as Nicholas Murray Butler says, how can a primary in Indiana be an expression of 'true senti ment” for Wood? ANYHOW, Prosecutor Adams succeeded in admitting that there had been gambling in the county jail. The Warning to Republicans The inability of the republican party to proceed with its convention in the absence of some kind of an agreement as to the league of nations is not without its reassurances to those persons who had about concluded that the G. O. P. cared more for & money barrel than a national issue. The halting of the convention program, on what is believed to have been the direct orders of Boss Penrose, until this muddle over the league is settled was a disclosure of some significance. Three months ago the republicans in Indiana were running about telling each other that it made no difference who was nominated at the national convention, nor what went into the platform. They chuckled with glee over the prospects of “utterly destroying” the democratic party and dividing the spoils of victory among themselves. They had no doubt in their egotistical minds that they would carry the election, no matter how they behaved. Yesterday, at Chicago, the biggest leader of the party bid the others stop and consider the necessity of framing a platform on which all repub licans could unite and the necessity of chosing from the candidates a man with a chance of winning the election. % Perhaps, from now on. some of the gentlemen who have been declar ing that the “democrats have no chance” will be less proud of their optimism. Certainly they will not pretend to put their political acumen against that of Senator Penrose, whose present position in the party is largely due to his ability to guess right. Whatever chances the republican party had of winning the next elec tion without a carefully planned campaign have faded since the pre convention contests degenerated into a scramble to spend the most money. No one can now make voters believe that Gen. Wood is without opposition —opposition that is most powerful because it comes from repub licans who do not believe in $500,000 checks from manufacturers and $2.50 checks for testimonials. k Even Mr. Lowden’s most particular friends will have to admit that the unwise use of his own mcney in Missouri aroused some antagonism to his candidacy from those who do not believe that delegates should be paid $2,500 apiece, 1 either before or after the convention. There is no denying that Hiram Johnson has his opponents and that they are of a type that are not easy to reconcile. So it is with the candidates and so it will be with the platform. The “devil-may-care” attitude with which the delegates expected to visit Chicago and nominate any old republican on any kind of a platform has given away to considerable anxiety. The question is now whether a platform can be built and a candidate selected, the combination of which will hold the republican party to gether. The answer may not be forthcoming before fall, but the existence of the doubt has at last been made plain. An * Openly Stated 9 Lie "It has been openly said,that the United States lent to England the money with which to buy the Cuban sugar crop that President Wilson should have bought," says the Muncie Press. And it might also add that at one time in our more remote past it %as ‘openly stated” that the world was flat. Also it might be recalled that not so many weeks ago it was "openly stated" that Muncie had purged itself of the gang of gamblers for which it Is principally noted. We mention all three of these incidents merely for the purpose of comparison, for there is nothing that shows the baldness of a lie better than the company it keeps. This lie about the sugar crop is more notable for the frequency with which it is told than for its cleverness. As long ago as July 23, 1919, Herbert Hoover, in a cable to Julius H. Barnes, which was made public then, stated that sugar control depended upon an extension of the powers -of the sugar equalization board by the republican congress. In the following August President Wilson asked congress for this necessary extension of power and specifically asked authority to acquire and distribute the Cuban sugar crop, as had been done in 1918. Congress prated much of the evils of “price regulation” and failed to give the matter attention until last December. By that time it was too late to acquire the Cuban crop. None knows these facts the republican editors who are now trying to lay responsibility for failure to control sugar prices on the democratic administration, through the publication of plain lies as things that are “openly stated.” Indianapolis Makes Good Indianapolis has been the host this week to some of the world's most brilliant men. And Indianapolis has risen to her opportunity. The advertising men of the world wanted a “brass tacks” convention. They did not come here to indulge in frivolity or to merely take a vaca tion They came on business. Indianapolis long ago recognized this fact. And Indianapolis,, through the convention board of the Advertising Club of Indianapolis, set about the task o? making good on this great con vention, probably the biggest business convention held in the United State§Ahis year. The convention, without question, was the greatest in the history of the Associated Advertising Clubs of the World. Not only in point of num bers, but in quality. The biggest men in the advertising business in the country came to Indianapolis. Every arrangement has been carried cut perfectly. The visitors have been treated courteously. They have not been “gouged” by any one. Their hotel arrangements have been ideal. Those unable to obtain hotel accomodations have been taken into private homes. Every individual in Indianapolis, it seems, has taken upon himself to act as a committee of one to see that nothing be left undone for the com fort of the visitors. The results are such that Indianapolis can we'll afford to indulge in a well-earned feeling of pride. Indianapolis has made good on a big job. Every word of praise given by Mr. Donnelley, president of the adver tising men of the world, has been deserved. The wonderful impression made by Indianapolis in handling the Shrine convention and the Speed way crowd has been made even stronger on the occasion of/the adver tisers’ convention For this we are pleased. Indianapolis believes in advertising. And Indianapolis this week has a mighty fine bit of advertising— kind that brings result*. AN ANALYSIS OF THE SOURCE OF ‘ADVICE’ TO DEMOCRACY (Ft. Wayne Journal-Oaxette.) Ever since the Indianapolis Stax became so free and generous in giving wholly disinterested advice to the democratic party of Indiana as to the character of campaign It should wags and the nature of speeches It should permit, especially 'n state conventions, we have shared In the general curiosity to know its views of the political situation in more detail. We have not had to wait long. In resenting the intimation of President Wilson that the public is not unjustified in its disgust over the do-notbng policy of the congress, it says: The session of congress that has just closed has made a credible record In handling a mass of Important and complicated problems. It has suved more than $2,000,000,00/ on the funds the various departments pro posed to spend. It has placed the irallways back on a business basis under the terms of a law designed to undo the ill effects cf the administration's disastrous experiment In government operation. It has enacted a long list of laws dealing with various Important phases of the reconstruction period. One might almost assume from this that our esteemed contemporary Is a rather rabid type of partisan paper end scarcely safe as a guide for the Indiana democracy. It furnishes a very lame exetlse for the congress which has accomplished none of the things It so blatantly promised in its prospectus except to return the railroads to their owners after many months of delay, and the enactment of a railroad law that apparently satisfies no one. And yet It makes the best case possible under the distressing circumstances. It is always easy to refer to the “mass of Important legislation,’’ but sometimes embarrassing to furnish an invoice. This is one of the instances. The two billion dollars "saved" represents a postponement of necessary appropriation, or a mere political juggling with figures. For example, as Mr. Daniels bus pointed out, mucb has been “saved” In the naval appropriation bill by utterly ignoring the navy's imperative needs, by authorizing the building of no new slips, and making'a miserably miserly provision for naval aviation. After the elec tion it is to be presumed that these appropriations will be made. But our republican advisor of the Indiana democracy la not precisely happy In savlgig that the railroads have been "put back on a business basis.' What party buncomb is that? The railroads on the verge of another collapse as a result of this “business basis" are appealing to the interstate commerce commission to give them back the McAdoo rules and policies as the only ones that can save them from this "business basis." "A long list of laws dealing with various important phases of the reconstruction period"—ye gods and name them! What are they? But we observe that our republican contemporary which aspires to a place on the democratic board of strategy in Indiana is eloquently silent on numerous strik ing omissions of this amazingly wonderful congress. Even our contemporary does not pay It tribute for the way it did not pass a budget In accordance to promise. Even it does not glory in its splendid work for the upbuilding of the merchant marine. Even it is silent on the things this congress did not do for the encouragement of our foreign and domestic commerce. Aud wo observe that newsprint is saved by devoting no space to the action of this delectable assembly In revising, reducing and repealing the war taxation In accordance to the recommendation of the president and the plea of Secretary Houston. It will require something more than an ex-cathedra statement of glittering generalities to lift this notoriously Incompetent congress to the level of the respect of the nation. And the people will demand a bill of particulars. Even a large portion of the republican press has severely criticised the congress for its failure to function, but perhaps they are too rabidly partisan and it may tequlre a touch of lofty independence to seuse the glory of its achievement*. WHEN A GIRL MARRIES A New Serial of Young Married Life By ANN LIBLE- CHAPTER LX. Evelyn Ms ion's ready acceptance of my luncheon invjtitlon rather startled me. It suggested that my young brother had made "an impression.”' It came over the phone In that throaty little quaver of beri: "You deer thing! Os course, I’ll come! I'm keen for a party with you and that beautiful young Greek god of a brother. Tell him he has a date to wash the dishes with me afterward.” I hung up the receiver and turned to Evvy's “Greek God."

The Right Thing at the Right Time By MARY MARSHALL S. nrrrrc When You Travel Traveling Is exhausting cr not, ac cording to the manner that you assume when you travel.

It Is Important to read signs on -Ca tions carefully If you do net wish to retrace your steps. If you can not rtn.l from written directions and signs ex actly where you should go in changing cars or In changing from train to ferry '■r underground railway, theu ask sun' one I>efore you have gone out of you* way. Don't start off anywhere j-**t to keep moving, and never follow the person ahead of you with the conviction that I.c- la going In the direction that you wish to go. If you are traveling with hand luggage or with a small child you should always use an additional amount of self contro. If you want to keep from feeding fa tigued. You really never save enough by re fraining from the help of a porter to make this sacrifice worth while. And don't waste your own energy and streng’h looking up a porter. Tell one of the railroad attendants ns you alight that you wish the services of a porter. He will get one for you or tell you the quickest way to get one for ydurself. Then don't hesitate to let the porter lake all your bags If there are too many for one man he will get another to help him. And see that he accompanies yor- Until you have reached a place where you need not lift the bags yourself. Os course, In these times we can none of us be extravagant, but It is often possible to save quite a little energy and time by taking a cab or taxi where the average person would not think of doing it. If you have to get from one station to another In a city where you are not sure of your wry the price of a taxi Is always worth while. You pan make up for It in many ways Sometimes a traveler spends money on magazines and candy when he starts out on a Journey and would not think ot treating htmself to a porter nr a i occa sional cab fare. Whereas if he did without the candy, and got along with nut the variety of magazines he would be able to got the other things that would really make traveling pleasant.— Copyright, 1920 HIT SAFELY FOR 20 GAMES.

(To Bo Continued.) LAST NIGHTS DREAMS —And What They Mean— Did yon dream of stables? The mystics set down a dream of a stable as being one possessing the gen eral signification of hospitality and good entertainment, either exercised by your self as host or enjoyed by you as a guest. There Is, also, in the various interpre tations of the dream, the idea of good news and of a visit from someone who you much desire to see, and whom, per haps. you have not seen for a long time —though the latter is not certain, only probable. One authority says that you may count on one you love coming to visit you soon after you dream of a stable. If the stable is occupied with horses or cattle the omen is a most excellent one for business success; but if it is empty, you may expect nuny vexations and be prepared for much hard work. To lovers who have had a falling out a dream of a stable is said to mean that a reconciliation will soon take place. A dream of a stable is a fortunate au gury for a farmer, and to the sailor It Is an indication that he will soon give up the sea and take up some profitable occu pation on land. If the stable you see In your dream stahds with open doors, it Indicates th>at you have, or will make, many friends be popular In the circle In which you move. Also, it Is a warning not to en gage in speculative or venturesome en terprises and to stick steadily to your business which, if you are depressed, will soon Improve.—Copyright, 1920.
