Harding Charges of
Bought Delegation
Meet Sharp Denial
DAYTON, 0.. Aug. 6.—Charges
from Harding headquarters that
democrats were trying to buy a large
delegation from Marion for the Cox
notification ceremonies tomorrow were
met with a sharp denial from the
offices of the democratic central com
mittee here today.
“The story of publicity coming out
of Marlon is even below the ethics
of a county campaign,” E. S. God
dlen, secretary of the committee,
said.
“The delegation from Marion will
be Marion people in fact.
“I can understand why its size Is
creating a disturbance in the Hard
ing camp.
“Every one who ia coming is pay
ing his own way, according to a
careful cheek up that I have made.”
WOMEN ASK FOR
KICK IN MAYOR’S
MULE PROMISE
South Side Housewives Wish
Market Made Out of
City Barns.
When Mayor Chanles W. Jewett went
up and down the south side in 1917 mak
ing brilliant promises that no longer
would the “city mule graft” exist and no
longer would the south side be pestered
with the odors emanating from the city
street cleaning barns in Shelby street,
he raised high hopes in the breasts ol
the housewives.
If Mayer Jewett had been at the barns
yesterday afternoon and heard the ex
presslons of a number of members of
the South Side Women’s club, who gath
ered there to confer with the special
committee of the city council appointed
to consldor their demands for tho estab
lishment of a market he would know,
first hand, how deeply disappointed the
south side is. not only over the fagt that
the mules were not removed as prom
ised, but also that they are being hired
at a rate muck than that which
"Poor Old B1U” Ktssell got, and which
the mayor termed as "plalu graft.”
He would have discovered also that
women of the south side are not going
to tolerate much longer without open
outbreaks of temper the dawdling ut
city employes about the barns when
they might be making tho premises
a little less odious and odorous to the
uelghborhod.
And If the msyor could have spared
lust a part of the afternoon from his
duties as messenger boy for the Indi
anapolis News he might have heard ono
us the leading women in the delegation
ai the barns say. In tones such as only
a woman In deadly earnest can employ:
“Well! You’H either d~ something for
the south *We or you'd better not—you'd
better not dare to send anybody down
here to make speeches to us daring the
next campaign
The reflueat of the South Side Women's
club presented to the city council three
weeks ago, was that the city move the
mules clear out of the Shelby street
neighborhood and move enough of the
street cleaning equipment out of one sec
tion of the barns to make room for a
number of market stall*.
The women's club has been conduct
ing a market on a vacant lot at Arizona
and South Talbott streets since early in
July, but would like to have a trading
place in the permanent building to it
could be operated the year round.
Jacob P. Brown, chairman of the spe
cial committee of the market; Louis
Csrneflx, member, and Gustav G.
Schmidt, president of* The council, who
attended the conference, were disposed to
grunt the women's demands.
Thomas A. Riley and Mark Miller,
members of the board of public works,
who were invited to the conference de
spite the fact that President Schmidt
was not in rnpor of issuing such an ia

BUNCH SELLING
PLAN OF FARMERS
Hoosiers’ Association Will
Send Investigator West.
Through concerted purchasing and
marketing power, the farmers of Indiana
expect to assert themselves economically,
according to discussions today at the
second day meeting of the officers and
directors of the Indiana Federation of
Farmers' associations, held at the organ
ization headquarters.
Community buying and modern market
ing plans, probably based on the findings
of a special representative who may be
sent to California to study methods of
the California Citrous Growers' assorts,
lion were discussed by the directors.
The association expects to select a
representative to attend the hearing be
fore the Interstate commerce commission
next Monday and make complaints re.
gardlng report'd, unfair grain shipment
rates.
This action follows the receipt of a
letter from J. R. Howard, president of
the American Farm Bureau of Federa
tion, notifying the association of the
hearing.
Lake and rail grain shipment rates
are said to vary widely, and there Is
raid to be many idle freight steamers
available for grain shipments between
Buffalo and middle western points.
The establishment of a uniform ac
counting system for county units of the
association, creation of a state branch
of the bureau of markets, formation of
a legal division of the organization, ar
rangements for the national meeting In
and the state meeting In No
vember were brought before the direc
tors.
Legislation favorable to farmers of In
diana will occupy the attention of the
federation, and a special effort will be
made to develop this branch of the work.

‘JOKER’ MAKES
BLUE SKY LAW
ONLYAFARCE
Issuer Is Liable to Provisions,
but No Restrictions Bind
Man Who Sells.
GIVES NO PROTECTION
Indiana citizens who have had an op
portunity to investigate are today de
claring the James P. Goodrich legisla
ture played squarely into the hands of
the fly-by-night stock jobbers when it
passed the much-touted “blue-sky law"
at the last special session of the legis
lature.
Lawyers are advising their clients that
the bill, as finally passed, is vicious, in
as much as it may be used by promoters
of fake schemes as an argument to vic
tims that they are protected by the In
diana law when in reality the law is
little, if any, protection.
The principal joker in the bill as
amended and passed is that it subjects
only tho “issuer’’ of securities to its reg
ulations.
The company or Individual that sells
the securities is not bound by Its terms
and as the “Issuer” is not infrequently a
resident of another state the Indiana
authorities have no Jurisdiction over him
and can not hold him responsible.
It has been pointed out that an Illi
nois corporation wishing to float se
curities in Indiana may make a secret
contract with a salesman in Indiana to
“underwrite” an issue of securities at any
price desired.
The Indiana salesman then “buys'' the
securities at the price be desires and
sells them at any price he can obtain.
his stock and he has the right to
dispose of It In any way he w ishes. -
The “issuer,” about whom regulatlons
nre thrown by the Indiana act, does not
enter the state, does not make a deal in
the state, and consequently Is not liable.
The stock may be good or bad.
No Indiana authority hag any right to
enter into an Investigation of the orig
inal sale, because it did not take place In
Indiana.
The original blue sky bill, as submit
ted to tho legislature, required the filing
of copies of all contracts or agreements
between the Issuer and any underwriter
of such securities and all contracts .per
taining to the sale of the securities, to- <
gether with the minutes of the directors
and stockholder* pertaining therto.
This provision was stricken out by
the legislate**.
Asa final movement to protect the
shady floaters of securities in Indiana,
a provision of the law by which all sales
of securities not in accordance with the
law would be “voidable” was stricken
out of the amended bill as passed.
Following legislative session, Gov.
Goodrich Issued a statement in which he
praised the legislature for passing this
bid and declared that “gi* administered
by Ed. Jackson, secretary of state,” it
would be a great boon for the public in
the protection of Investors against fraud.
Commercial organizations having as
their purpose the protection of clients
are now advising their clients the law
is a farce.

ALLIES STAND
READY FOR WAR
AGAINST REDS
Bolshevik Drive Reported
Checked Along Bug River
Defense Line.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.—Secre
tary of State Colby, accompanied by
Undersecretary of State Daviu, went
to the whitehouse shortly before
noon today.
The secretary entered the white
house through the front gate instead
of using the customary walk between
the state department and the white
house.
It is understood the secretary de
sired to confer with the president
concerning the Polish situation.
Europe today apparently stood on the
verge of war.
The British cabinet, according to a
dispatch from London, has decided on
a course of action against the bolshe
vlki which virtually amounts to waging
war upon Russia.
There was nothing to indicate that
Britain would actually send a military
expedition* but its warships at Constan
tinople and the Baltic were ready to im
pose an airtight blockade in the Baltic
and Black seas on twelve hours’ notice.
France and Britain were believed pre
pared to Join in sending munitions to
Poland.
A Warsaw dispatch said the Poles had
checked the bolshevik offensive and were
bolding the Invaders along the general
line #f the river Bug. •
Evacuation of Warsaw continued, how
ever .
Laborite* and others opposed to Brit
ish intervention were organizing to bold
public demonstrations throughout Eng
land, to voice opposition to aiding Poland
lu any manner.
Both Austria and Germany, the nations
which started the great war Just six
year* ago. have declared neutrality.
Austria begged the allies to respect lta
frontiers.
Germany, which six years ago violated
the neutrality of Belgium, declared It
would fight If necessary to keep its
frontiers Inviolate If a real war devel
oped.
Active diplomatic exchanges are pro
ceeding between London and Pari* today
over the next allied move to check the
Russians and prevent a spread of war
fare in Europe, following receipt of the
S 'Vlet government's unsatisfactory reply
to the British note of Tuesday.
POLES Ml ST HOLD
AK.WIBTIC PARLEY.
“The immediate effect of the Russian
note is to emphasize the importance of a
resumption of armistice negotiations by
the Poles," said the Daily News.
“It seems certain that the reds will
cease their advance the moment the
truce Is signed, but otherwise they will
be in Warsaw within a week's time.
“It is believed a Polish delegation has
already gone to Minsk to treat with the
Russians.”

OPEN LETTER
\ TO DENNY BUSH.
Appellant.
Dear Denny—When Ralph Lemcka
sends for you to tell you what he
wants done, don’t you think you had
better select a more secluded place
to meet him than the front of the
Lemcke building in the middle of
the morning? \
Lemcke has a habit of talking lu
a loud voice, doubtless acquired
from addressing republican work
ers’ meetings, and your own democ
racy is likely to be subjected to fur
ther doubt If he continues openly to
tell you what be wants done.
