Welcoming the G. A. R.
Another large national convention is coming to Indianapolis, that of
the Grand Army of the Repubilc.
Perhaps no body of men which has come to Indianapolis has. so
much deserved the welcome of the city as will this body.
Indianapolis i3 to be given the honor of being host to the veterans
in their declining years during which they are daily growing fewer and
nothing should be left undone to make them feel that their visit is well
worth while.
Indianapolis has been greatly honored recently in the location of
the national headquarters of the American legion here and we can now
feel ourselves doubly honored in the selection of this city for one of the
last of the Grand Army conventions.
Our Traffic Troubles
The recent assignment of motor police to North Meridian street dur
ing the heavy traffic "hours of the day for the apparent purpose of keeping
vehicles on the move is reassuring. \
It indicates that the authorities have at last realized that the ever
increasing number nL automobiles in Indianapolis has created a traffic
problem that requires special attention.
These policemen have been engaged in an effort to impress upon auto
drivers the necessity of keeping on the move and keeping out of the center
of the street. They have not been any too successful, but there is reason
to retain hope. „
gradually the driver who has the mistaken idea that he is contributing
to the safety either of himself or others by driving in the center of the
street at a ten-mile pace will learn that he is a boulevard pest.
Gradually the police may be able to impress on these drivers the fact
that safe driving does not necessarily mean slow driving, but does mean a
careful observance of traffic rules.
Traffic on Meridian street could be speeded up ten miles an hour and
produce much more satisfactory and safer conditions if it were not for the
pests who insist on riding in the center of the street and holding back all
traffic to the snails pace which they seem to think indicates caution.
It will, probably, take many months to teach this kind of autoists
that as much attention should be paid to other traffic rules as to the ques
tion of speed, but there is some satisfaction in the acknowledgment of the
police department that therein lies the solution of our traffic troubles.
Cleanse the Bar
The conduct of a few lawyers In Indiana, whose zea)/' to make money
appears to override their regard for their professional standing. 13 exert
ing a very bad effect on the public judgment of the legal profession as a
Recently, in the local state courts, there have been revelations that
tended to create a lack of respect for the legal profession as a whole and
moved Judge Solon Carter to denounce the practice* of certain attorneys
in terms that were possible of only one interpretation.
Fallowing closely on this incident is the pronouncement by Judge
Anderson in the federal court regarding the conduct of attorneys interested
In the Evansville liquor eases. /
Judge Anderson said he had practiced law for twenty years and de
clared that he would, much rather make a living by other methods than
those adopted by lawyers he was criticising. He declared their conduct a
“shame’* concerning which he could not refrain from speaking.
The result of these criticisms of individual members of the bar is
detrimental to the profession as a whole for the reason that too frequently
tn the public mind a profession that harbors men worthy of condemnation
is condemned in its entirety."
Indiana has had, and has now, reason to congratulate It3elf on its
brilliant barristers, men whose characters are above reproach, and men
whose high sense of ethics makes their very presence in a law suit or a
criminal procedure a guaranty of merit in the cause. '
Perhaps it is asking too much of such men to expect them to give
their time and attention to safeguarding the public against unethical prac
titioners, but if they fail to keep their profession clean, to whom may we
look for such.protection? . -
Before the legal profession suffers more in the public eye, there should
be a cleansing of the bar.
The Democratic Problem
The majority of Indiana’s delegation to the San Francisco convention
is on its way and the rest of it will be there before the end of the week,
ready and anxious to contribute the weight of this state’s influence to an
unhampered consideration of the problems of the party and, the need of
the nation.
It" is indeed fortunate that thq advice of leading democrats of the
lAted States against pre-convention instructions has -prevailed.
Tilere can be no repetition of the debacle at Chicago where sentiment
in states was ignored for sentiment expressed in hotel confer
-3*3-3,and where the country obtains a candidate who represents not the
of the voters but the determination of a few bosses.
Whoever is nominated at San Francisco will have the satisfaction of
that his nomination was the result of deliberation on the part of
jljMreaentatives of the people in their several localities and not the result
program determined on months before and ruthlessly executed, re-
Hrdless of sentiment or consequences.
Indiana’s delegates are not pledged to any candidate, nor are they con-
any person or clique.
They will caucus at San Francisco and determine on a course of action
fHt will place them in the convention in a position to be of real service to
F party in the selection of nominees and the formulation of a platform of
the party may be proud. \
There is no use denying that the United States as a whole Is dlsap-
with'the results of the republican convention.
>SB These results do not attune with the crying needs of the country and
party can not be said to have offered to the voters any
relief for the conditions under which it is now laboring.

This movie has a powerful appeal to
the writer because it breathes of the
great north, where the hills and rallies
are so often covered with snow, and
where leal men and women light out
their destinies.
The story concerns Michael O’Doone,
a missloner, whose wife is stolen from
him by Tavish, played by Boris Karloff,
and the wife flees from the cabin of her
captor, leaving her baby daughter,
Marge, there with the brute.
Marge grows to beautiful womanhood,
protected by, Tara, the bear, which had
been trained to come at her call when
she needed protection.
Following the suicide of Tavish, Marge
escapes and becomes the “property,” un
der the custom of the land, of Brokaw,
'the brute, played with terrific cruelty
by Jack Curtis.
Into this mess comes David Raine and
before the last reel is over Tara has
