Judge Walter Pritchard re veals that he is thoroughly familiar with both the practices and the evils resulting from the toleration of city administration bondsmen about the city court. * The Judge also discloses that the evil can not be continued without the connivance of officials over whom he has direct control because they are officers of his court >. The only wonder is that the judge should confess such ability to con trol the situation and continue to refrain from exercising the control which is vested in his official position. Judge Pritchard says: “What the court should do, and what this court is trying to do, is to prevent defendants at a time when they are frightened and fearful from being ‘held up’ and robbed at the time of arrest, by exorbitant charges for bonds. “The evil of the bonding business of times past, consisted of an iniquitous combination among a lawyer, a bondsman and the turnkeys. Without the aid of the turnkeys the combination could not work.’’ Under the system now in vogue defendants are not prevented from being held up and robbed at a time when they are frightened and fearful by exorbitant charges for bonds as is attested by the large number of ad ministration favorites who are growing rich at the expense of these un fortunates. The combinations of bondsmen, attorneys and turnkeys is working as effectively a6 it ever did in times gone by as has been revealed by testi mony before Judge Pritchard himself. / The turnkeys are officers of the court and their connivance with the bondsmen can be stopped whenever Judge Pritchard desires to stop it. The judge’s insistence that persons who have knowledge of solicitation of business by bondsmen or others in his behalf should make affidavit to that effect before him is as farfetched as it is ancient. Such a plea has always been the reliance of an official who does not himself desire to do his duty. The records of bonds are in the possession of the court The power to order the prosecutor to file affidavits against offenders is inherent with the court. Such a prosecution can be started whenever the court desires without the assistance of any one not connected with the court. If Judge Pritchard really wishes to end professional bonding extortion in the city court he will investigate the bonding of the Chinese who were recently arrested and dismissed in his court. It is currently rumored in the corridors of the building where he sits that one of the pet bondsmen of the administration profited to the extent of $l5O by these arrests and so far as has been disclosed there was no other purpose in the arrests than to make such a profit possible. City Planning The idea back of the city planning campaign has merit. It becomes especially noticeable when the numerous turns and jogs in the streets about Indianapolis are considered. Without going into the value of any special plan or method, as a municipality there is always the wise admonition to prepare, in time of deliberation, for action in time of need. What will we do when the population of the city is doubled? No one can say it will not double and the prospects are that it will. How. then, can traffic reach the center of the city? What will care for double the present traffic? The location of additional industries, the housing of more people and the reservation of natural sites for parks and public buildings present important questions now. These questions will be doubly important when we have twice the population. Besides, in beauty and in utility, the city as well as individ uals must have an ideal to which they work. Nor should it be overlooked that the sucoess of this city planning cam paign is going to depend to no Bmall degree upon the care with which are selected the men who will conduct it. No one whose business or social relations are such as to Indicate prejudice either for or against groups of interests that will be affected by city planning should be permitted to reach a position in the compalgn where his presence creates distrust. No one should be depended upon for effort in this campaign who is not capable and willing to work against many obstacles with sufficient per sistency and ability to prevent the movement from collapsing through di version of interests. Unexposed Announcement is now made by the gentlemen who generally announce such things that William Johnson of Detroit and Frank Patterson of Cleveland are to be returned from the penal farm for trial in the criminal court on more serious charges than petit larceny, to which they pleaded guilty by arrangements in the city court some time ago. This return is brought about by the simple process of having the governor remit the sentences imposed on them in the city court. Asa result of the manipulation of the prosecution of these two men by the local authorities they are now returned to the status of men accused of a felony, after having pleaded guilty to a petit larceny charge based on the issuance of fraudulent checks. The presumption that they will be tried in the criminal court on a charge of issuing fraudulent checks is created by the filing of affidavits against them. But no investigation of the “pull” that permitted them to enter pleas of guilty in the city court has been made or is contemplated. The influences that made it possible for Ihem to obtain the consent of a prosecutor of this convenient arrangement by which they first escaped trial on a more serious charge are unexpcsed. Presumably these influences will not now forsake the two men. I-- - t V Gemmill Quits W. B. Gemmill, deputy attorney general, who has been assigned to the state board of accounts office and has there endeavored to do his duty as an officer of the state, has resigned and will return to his home at Marion to practice law.

SUBPOENAES ISSUED FOR WET MEN Epitome of First Day f s Hearing CHICAGO, 'Aug. 31.—A vigorous counterr thrust at Gov. James M. Cox, democratic presidential nomi nee, and at his party's alleged meth ods of raising campaign funds, coupled with a sweeping and em phatic denial of ail Cox’s charges of a $15,000,000 republican slush fund, was the reply yesterday of Will 11. Hays, chairman of the republican national committee, to Cox’s attack. Hays, appearing as the first wit ness before the Kenyon senate com mittee investigating campaign ex penditures, divided his testimony in two parts. The first was a denial as emphatic as Hays could make It of all Cox's charges In general and in detail. The second consisted of counter charges against the democrats. Hays charged: That the liquor Interests of the United States are backing Cox anil Roosevelt and arc soliciting funds to help elect them. That the democrats created ma chinery to collect a campaign fund of $10,000,000. (He did not charge that the ma chinery functioned, but said it was made ready to function.) That the democrats has misused their control of government offices In Washington by sending through of ficial channels “tons” of propaganda CHICAGO, Aug. 31.—Organized liquor interests in the United States have set out to elect Gov. Cox of Ohio president and are raising campaign funds for the purpose, Will H. Hay< chairman of the republican national committee, charged yesterday before tha United States senate subcom mittee investigating expenditures. Hays read into the record a letter written by George T. Carroll, presi dent of the New Jersey federation of liquor interests, under date of July 22, 1920, asking for a contribution to help elect Cox and to keep the anti saloon league out of power. The letter called Cox’s nomination a "great victory for us.’’ The letter addressed to Cadtan Broth ers, said: “The organlxed liquor trade of New Jersey has set out to do Its part toward the election of James M. Cox as the next president of the United States end It becomes my duty to call upon yon to help. “More than that, we are going to fight as we never fought fonght before to keep a hireling of the Anti-Saloon league out of office. “The nomination of Gov. Cox of Ohio for the presidency by the democrats la a big victory for our Interests and It can be attributed In a great degree to the activities of onr trade organizations in New Jersey and throughout the nation. “Gov. Cox is a pronounced wet and he can be relied" upon to approve an amendment to the Volstead act. "And it is now up to out trade organi zation* to stand unitedly back of the ticket of Cox and Roosevelt to roll up such a majority as will show convinc ingly that the public will be In our favor. “This Is going to be the greatest po litical tight in the history of the United States. “Money must be had Immediately if we are to maintain our headquarters and push the propaganda that is necessary.” Hays also produced what he said was an acknowledgement by I. N. Heller of Newark, secretary of the New Jersey federation of liquor Interests of a con tribution of $123 to the democratic cam paign fund. Heller and Carroll Immediately were jubpoenaerf by the committee. Hays produced the letter and receipt after haring charged that “certain in teresta’’ were trying to help elect Cox. He said he was willing to submit evi dence eoncrnlng these lntersts. “Submit it," said Senator Kenyon. Hays then read the letter. Hays declared with great emphasis in response to queries by Senator Reed that “there is not, never was and will not be any arrangement or agreement with men of large means to underwrite the cam paign." He also denied that'any corporations had contributed to the G. O. P. and said he had not heard of any promise* of future favors in contributions. Hays declared "this liquor business la bad.” “You ought to go into that." “Gov. Cox’s charges are false in what they say and libelous in their purpose," Hays declared when he took the stand as tjte first wttness Frederick Upham, treasurer of the na tional committee, also was scheduled to testify. Hays, In a long prepared statement to the committee, said the national commit tee’s budget for the campaign for this year called for $3,079,037.20. “That sum, or approximately that, will be raised and spent,” h said, “anil not $15,000,000, as Gov. Cox charged.” “The $3,000,000 does not include,” Hays said, “collections for states where there is a mutual agreement that such col lections for state and national commit tees shall be done Jointly. “It 1* my opinion that the total amount which has been and will be finally col lected by the Joint money raising or ganizations for the use of all state e*re mittees In their state elections will/ap ploxlmate $1,000,000. “This Is no part of the national Com mittee’s fund." Taking up the various angles of Cox’* charges. Hays said: WHEN A GIRL MARRIES A New Serial of Young Married Life CHAPTER LXV. N’o oue appeared to notice that Vir ginia and I parted withorfi a word. ! congratulated myself on the fart that every one probably thought we had sai l iU. affectionate farewell when we were alone tn the bedroom. Ruefully I reflected on the real sit uation. Virginia’s last words to mg had been: “Tour husband happens to be my brother—kindly .remember that. I did what 1 thought best for him. But that, didn't include lying to him.’’ After calling on Betty and Terry to find work for my Jim, Virginia had turned on me with actual fury for the way 1 helped carry out their plahe. And she had snubbed Neal aud called him an outsider. An outsider! Hudn’t she always treated me as If I were One? As 1 turned these things over in my mln>l there was something very like hate for Virginia in ray heart. And her actions had not indicated milch love for me. 1 was so preoccupied with this ugly situation that 1 began making prepara tions for dinner In complete siler.ee. Hut Jim didn’t appear to botice this. He had brought Jut his book# on .accounting and, was ( working away with complete study at. one sitting. then, as I came into the flHwui .with something for the. INDIANA DAILY TIMES, TUESDAY, AUGUST 31,* 1920. and have forced federal office holders into contributing to the democratic fund. Hays gave detailed figures and in formation on republican campaign contributions and promised the com mittee the names of all contributors and the source of every dollar col lected by or for the national com mittee would be disclosed. His figures showed a total fund of $4,079,000 to be raised, of which $3,079,000, he said was the national committee’s budget and the other million was an estimate of the sums to be raised through “joint agree ment” with certain states. The million last referred to is not part of the national committee funds, he said, but is for use by state organizations. Hays clashed often with Senator Reed, Missouri, democratic member of the committee and Gov. Cox's spokeman in the investigation. Reed tried to keep out some of Hays’ testimony on the grounds that it was hearsay. He also sharply cross-examined Hays as to his personal knowledge of facts on which to base his count er charges against the democrats. Senator Kenyon, chairman of the committee, announced that night ses sions will be held In an effort to finish the inquiry this week. “Gov Cox has publicly charged: “I. That certain interests were banded together to buy the presi dency and that millions had been contributed to the republican party with 'sinister intent,* That state ment Is false. “2. That there Is ‘a deliberate plot that has been carried into county in America In a conspiracy to buy the presidency of the United States.’ That statement is alao false. “3. That others are writing large checks ao that their puppets can get Into office and if there are industrial controversies they can have the bay onet to enforce their will. That atatement is also false. "4. That millions have been con tributed by a corrupt source in fur therance of a republican conspiracy to buy an underhold on the presi dency; that the republican funds not a campaign fund, but a corrupting fund, will not be less than $15,000,- 000. That statement Is also false. “ft. That a. quota fixing assess ments to be rais'd by certain cities amounting to over $8,000,000 ‘was adopted at a meeting of which Up ham and T were present.* That charge Is alao false. “No such quotas were ever adopted at such meeting or at any other time or placp and no operation had under any such quotas “He has made other statements charg ing a slurb, fund for corruption pur poses, subscribed in the names of dummy contributors, to be used to corrupt the electorate. “These statements are also false. “I now say that each nnd all of these several charges are absolutely false in w-hat they say and libelous in their purpose." CHARGES MISUSE. OF GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. Countering Cox's charges Hays assert ed republican leaders have been advised of the alleged misuse cf governmental Instruments and functions by the demo cratic organization for political pur poses, sending out thousands of tohs of propaganda by the democratic admin istration during the paj>er shortage while limiting the use of paper by the press, and that a large part of It was demo cratic political propaganda, all paid for by taxpayers’ money, and were in formed too that “the democratic com mittee even resorted to drawing drafts on bunkers In whoso bank* government funds were deposited, wiring such bank ers that, they had already drawn such drafts.’’ Hays put Into the records articles from leading democratic newspapers telling of democratic plans to raise $lO,- 000,000 for the presidential campaign. Republican fund raising activities, he said, were Influenced by the reputed slz-' of tlie democratic fund. The republican plan for thm raising of money through small contributions, Hays said, grew out of two primary causes, the real desire to work a real reform ln the elimination of any possible im proper obligation and out of the experi ence tn connection with ruislng funds for war purposes, these popular drives having become familiar activities and it, seemed possible at this time to under take that kind of action by political or ganization. “We particularly hoped that thiy ac- By Ann Ll6le diner table, I heard him fling a (question at Neal, who was standing Idly nt one of the windows playing with the apricot silk curtains. Now this hurl my house wifely feelings, but T realiaed -that Neal was still sore from the rebuff Virginia hau given him and 'but he would bo frvghtfuilj* hurt by even the slightest correction. Presently Neal followed me into the kitchen. “Anything I can do, Babbs?” he asked, with an entire lack of animation that was no odder than his question. Generally he plunged in and helped without any direction from me. “Don't bother if you’re *ired, dear. I've nothing much to get I saved a few sandwiches for yfu. and the rest of the dinner's Just chops and carrots and baked potatoes.’’ "I’d like something to do. I—l don't want to think. Bahha,” Neal— then, suddenly, “Say, Babbs, .have you beard from father lately?'' “That’s funny, Neal 1 was going to ask you about that. I've written twice a week ns usual ever since you came, but I've had only a couple of posfftls from Father Andrew. I thought it was be cause he was writing to you." “I’ve hud exactly one Jettor from father since I came,” Neal leplied, in a voice that was almost husky.—Copyright 1020. (To 11# Continued.) tivity would increase the political inter est,” he said. “It was then the purpose, and it has been since, to endeavor to limit the con tribution to a maximum of a thousand dollars for any one year for any In dividual, or a thousand dollars before the nominating convention and a thou sand after. • “We have tried to adhere to that plan.” GIVES ITEMS OF BUDGET AS PLANNED. After explaining the machinery through which the plan was put Into ef fect, Hays produced the $3,000,000 budgbt he said had been- worked out. It showed the division of the money for the following purposes. Speakers’ bureau, $255,100. Headquarters expense Washington, New York, Boston, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco, $730,874.20. Rents all headquarters, $1,346,500. General expense, $680,920. Hays next took up the alleged “quotas’’ which Cox charged had been levied for states and cities. “At different periods different quotas have been suggested by the treasurer’s office as tentative goals In different states, and the .state committees them selves have fixed different qfaotas,” he said. / “These are changing constantly, and always, of course, were made very much higher than the amount either necessary or anticipated. “The fact is the qnotas meant little. “Furthermore, whatever may have been suggested as quotas by over-zealous so licitors In their enthusiasm In different localities, the fact, remains that a cer tain amount was believed necessary and the budget above referred to was indi cated therefor. “There is actually a deficit in the re publican treasury of $28,374.69,” Hays said. After the convention be said the net balance in the hands of the national com mittee was $196,621.27. CAMPAIGN TREASURY DEFICIT IS SHOWN “Since the 1920 convention there has been raised by the national committee for Its own use $618,013.54. up to Aug. ,226, 1920. “During this period there has been raised by the states where we have ai Joint working arrangement for their own use, $399,241.78,” said Hays. “There was on hand on Aug. 25, 1920, in the national treasury, $155,125.31, and we owe $460,000. “This amouut has been borrowed In order to anticipate expenditures. “Os this we have loaned to the con gressional campaign committee $188,500: senatorial campaign committee, $50,000, and state campaign committees. $38,000. “From June 14 to Aug. 26, 1920, the na tional committee has expended $843,- I 009.50. “This leaves a deficit of $28,374.69 on j Aug. 26, 1920. "However, we have on band uncollect- j ed pledge cards amounting to $291,565.33, j all due between now and Oct. 1. "The treasurer has these pledge cards, j “These pledges come from every state, j and are from 2,304 persons, with an aver- j age contribution of $126.55 per person. "Os these 2,304 pledge*, none Is over SI,OOO, except two, which are for $5.00) each “The names of ail contributors, to gether with the amounts they have given, from June 14 to Aug. 26, 1920, are here for the Inspection of the committee. “During this period from June 14, 1920, to Aug. 26, 1929. there were 12.389 men and women contributors to both the na tional committee and to state commit tees through the Joint collecting organ- j irarlon, an average of 82.11. “Os these none has been over the SI,OOO rule, except eight, which eight j have given a total of* sl3.Boo—an aver- j age of $1,687.50. "Os this amount $1,162,324.3$ was spent. | “The highest of these was $2,500. “During approximately the nineteen month* between Dec. 1, 1?18> atul June 12. 1820, the national committee raised $1,361,84)7.49. REED INSISTS ON SHORN STATEMENTS. Senator Roed, Missouri, democratic member of the committee. Interrupted Hays' statement when the G. O. P. chair man began to read a newspaper article telling of a meeting of th* democratic executive committee at Atlantic City In August, 1019. at which. It was stated, the democratic leaders planned to raise a fd0.000.000 fund. Hays said he was reading the article as a counter-charge ngaiust the demo crats. Senator Kenyon asked Hays to keep away front that sort of evidence as much as possible. Reed Insisted Ihlt evidence should he obtained only front sworn witnesses and Senator Edge naked if he thought the committee should call Gov. Cox. “If any number of the committee wants to call him. I’m not objecting,” ISecd said. “But I don’t think It V, necessary at this time.” Roed asked Hays If be would charge, under oath, that the democrats set out to raise a fIO.fttO.OUO fund set forth In three newspaper articles Hays read into the evidence. “I charge,” said Hays, “that amount was set tip for the very purpose set out in these articles" Reed and Hays engaged tn a long wrangle regarding the admissibility of the articles as evidence. Hays said lie way merely trying to give the commlttee~" lead for Its In vestigation of the democratic funds and was permitted hy the committee to sub mit the newspaper articles as that "lead.” “I do not claim that the democrats set out to raise $10,000,000,” Hays said. "But I do say they created money raising machinery to do that. When Hays began reading his charge about alleged misuse by democrats of the governmental agencies In further ance of party Interests, Reed again broke In, demanding that Hays give the names of those who had Informed him of the alleged abuses. Hays referred Reed to speeches by Senator Smoot of Utah In the senate. Hays named Clarence B. Miller, secre tary of the republican natioual commit tee. as one Informant and snid Miller had been assigned to And out what the democrats were doing and was prepared to testify concerning what he had learned. When Reed asked for samples of dem ocratic propaganda which Hays charged was being sent out from govertyuent de partments in Washington, Hays pro duced a circular lei ter sent, he said, to bankg generally from the office of John Skelton Williams, controller of the cur rency, dated July 111, 1920. From this letter he reall a statement that disturbed financial conditions. In the United States were due to failure Fo rat ify the treaty. That, Hnyß said, was elearly political propaganda, because If was an argument for the league of nations. • Reed moved that Senator Smoot he called, and the committee took the mo tion under advisement. George W. Bean, member of the re publican committee from Florida, fur nished the information, Hays said, on which the charge that the democrats drew drafts on democratic bankers was based. “Bean said a democratic hanker told him that sight drafts had been drawn on him,” said Hays. “Bean said ho was informed by demo crats. that they were.afraid not to.honor the drafts for fear government, funds in the bank would he withdrawn. Senator -Kenyon opened the session promptly at 11:10 a. m., asking that cer tain extracts from speech made by Gov. Fox v'fMu Ihe ten days, he made part of the records. ■- earner Kucu of Missouri addcessejl the committee Immediately after Cha-tr-' man Kgnyon and stated that if either candidates or chairmen had made any charges it was their duty to find “every dollar collected,” aud the purpose to which it was put. “I think-this case should be pursued Just as a case would be tried in. court,” Senator Reed said. “Otherwise, the record will be filled with rumors and vague charges which might be unjust to candidates and par ties. “I think the witnesses should all be brought here and their sworn testimony tn ken.” Then Senator Kenyon introduced va rious newspaper clippings with extracts from Gov. Coxts West Virginia speeches of Aug. 15. Hays was called immediately follow ing the reading of the extracts of the Ohio governor’s West Virginia speeches. Mr. Hays arose to testify and gave his full name for the purpose of the records. CHAIRMAN QUESTIONED BY SENATOR KENYON. “How long have you been chairman of the republican national committee?” Sen ator Kenyon asked. “Since Feb. 19, 1918.” “Have you had general charge of the republican campaign since that time?’’ Kenyon continued. “I have had charge of the national committee part of the campaign,” Hays replied. WHITE AND MARSH AT INVESTIGATION. George White, chairman of the demo cratic national committee, and Wilbur Marsh, its treasurer, arrived today to at tend the investigation which Senator Ken yon, chairman of the committee, prom ised would bw-impartial and as searching as the committee can make it. “Many charges and counter charges have been made to this committee,” said Kenyon. “We’ll sift to the bottom of every one. “We will do exact justice to everyone, and show the facts, whatever they may be.” Representatives James W. Good of lowa asked Kenyon to investigate al leged violations of the corrupt -prac tice acts by the democrats. Good declared that Wilbur Marsh, In his capacity as .treasurer, sent letters to federal employes, virtually assessing them for the democratic fund. Good said he was ready to submit the letters to the committee, one of them having been written, he said, to a woman postmaster demanding that she pay 3 per cent of her salary ito the demo cratic war chest. The commltte also had before It the charge of Representative Britten that the British embassy in Washington had provided $87,500 for the democratic cam paign fund.

He has enriched his office by many unwarranted prosecutions in remote Justice of the peace courts, which were unlawfully instituted by irreSponsibe constables. , Our statute provides that it is the duty of a constable to “take forthwith before the nearest justice of the peace all who violate the law in his presence, and there charge them with such viola tion on oath.” (Burns R. 8. 1914, 9549.) I These hufnan parasites have made a practice of arresting people without warrants for alleged violations of the automobile tail light law and similar offenses, and have unlawfully compelled them to appear before justices of the peace in other townships. These offend ers should be taken before a justice of the peace in the township where the ar rest is made. The prosecution of these cases is unwarranted. Why don’t the constables take these use of Ambassador Geddes was dispensed through British “propaganda agents’’ in this country to create sentiment for the league of nations.

WINCHESTER, Ind„ Aug. 31.—After forty-two years ln the railway mall service, excepting four years during Cleveland’s administration, Joseph people before a justice of the., peace in the township where the arrest Is made? There are two reasons for this First, it is because the justices of the peace in Indianapolis, where most of these arrests are made, receive salaries and are paid r.o fees, and they are. con sequently thought less likely to flne the defendants than the justices of the peace ih the outside townships (Irvington, for instance), who receive no salaries and are paid fees out of the fines collected. The/other reason for this Iniquitous practice is that it is believed that many people, if taken before a justice of tht peace- in the townships where the arrest is made, would make a defense, but tha*, if required to go to a remote court for trial wnuld avoid doing so by consent ing to the pillage. I am unqualifiedly opposed to this practice, and. If elected prosecuting attorney, I will not tolerate It. —PAUL G. DAVIB. Watts, 77, has been retired under the uejv civil service pension law.
