REGISTER; TWO OPPORTUNITIES * f Tomorrow and Oct. 4 Are Days Set, Hours 8 a. m. to 9 p. m BETTER TAKE FIRST ONE - ' Voters , Attention It Is absolutely necessary that you register in order to rote nest No vember. You must register either tomorrow or Oct. 4. These are the only two opportuni ties you will have. Registration places will be open in each precinct from 8 a. m. to p. m. tomorrow. Register tomorrow, something may prevent you doing so next month. Democratic and republican state and county organizations today were putting on the finishing touches to arrangements to obtain as near a 100 per cent registra tion tomorrow as Is possible. Saturday is the first of the two regis tration days for the 1920 election, the second and last day being Oct. 4. It Is absolutely necessary that every person register tomorrow or Oct. 4 In order to cast a vote in the Nevember election. Both parties are appealing to all voters to register If at all possible tomorrow, and not put it off until the last day. Registration booths will be open from 8 a. m. until 9 p. m., and voters are re quired to register in the precinct in which they live. Women, as well as men voters, must register, the method and place of regis tration being the same as for the men. CAN’T UNDO WHAT HAS BEEN* DONE. Party officials and election officials are paying no heed to the report that action on the suffrage amendment in the Tennessee legislature may be re considered, and will register women, In accordance with the proclamation of Secretary of State Colby. Any person who will be a qualified ■voter in the November election will te able and will be expected to register. If a young man or woman will be 21 by Nov. 2, then he or she will be able to register and may vote election day. In registering, voters will be required to state their name, sex, precinct, town ship and street residence, age on last birthday and place of birth. Realizing that the strength of their parties in the general election will be determined by the number of voters who register, each party has for weeks been bending every effort toward instructions In manner of registering, and to pound ing home the fact that unless a voter Is registered he can not vote. IP TO PRECINCT ORGANIZATIONS. / In a large way, the turning out of a fall registration is now up to the pre cinct organizations, who will be ex pected to see that every vote In the precinct is properly registered. It Is now too late for voters to regis ter by mail, as any letter mailed now could not possibly reach hU registra tion board before the time expires. Another chance will be provided for mail registration on the second regis tration day. Warning is issued t.o voters by the election officials and party organiza tions not to ajove ont of the county after registering tomorrow, nor out of the precinct after Oct. 4. or privilege of voting will he forfeited. Both parties were confident that a large number of voters will turn out to register. A registration place will be opened at the East Tenth Street Methodist church tonight for the purpose of registering voters in that neighborhood. Arrangements have been made by Rev. George Benninger, pastor of the church, to have a notdfry present who will sign registration blanks free of charge. OMEN’S ORGANIZATION BUSY In both state and county political headquarters of the democratic wotn“n all other activities haTe been superseded by that of registration. Even the speakers are concentrating their attention on explaining and urging registration. "Service for patriotism’’ was the key note of a meeting of the members of the democratic women's motor corps, held yesterday afternoon at the Denison hotel.

Rescue Crew of 30 Men Imprisoned 48 Hours in Flooded Underseas Boat NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—Four officers and twenty-six men, crew of the United States submarine S-5, were safe today after submersioD in their disabled vessel almost forty-elsgh hours off the Dela ware capes. A radio message received at the Brook lyn navy yard said the merchant ship Alantheus was towing the disabled un dersea boat to the Delaware breakwater. The plight of the S-5 was discovered I when the George W. Goethals, an Ameri can vessel, saw a telephone buoy floated from the submarine. ' The buoy was ringing and a small boat was lowered from the Goethals. The telephone operator In the sub marine said the vessel had been disabled then for thirty-five hours. Sbe was almost vertical, making it im possible to release any of the crew through the torpedo tubes, which are in the bow. A later message from the telephone operator said the submarine's air was being exhausted. MERCHANT SHIP DISCOVERS PEIGHT. Details of the accident which came within a hair’s breadth of becoming a naval catastrophe, coming In by wire of the rescue ship, unfolded a tale of heroism at sea. Thirty-five hours after the S-5 en route from Boston to Baltimore on a recruiting expedition, had slipped to the bottom off Cape Henlopen, the steamship General Goetbals broadcasted a radio S. O. S. The message said the submarine was caught beneath the surface and that help was urgently needed to raise her, or cut a hole In the hull through which the crew might be removed to safety. David L. Moore, an amateur operator at Farmington, Conn., sitting beside his Instrument, picked the cry for help out of the air. He communicated at once with Bos ton navy yard and with navy officials : at New Haven. I Destroyers were dispatched from Bo ! ton and from the southern drill grounds, j where the message was relayed to the ! battleships as they cruised through the night. The battleship Ohio turned northward at once. Other destroyers darted out from navy [ yards along the coast and headed toward I the spot in the general vicinity of 35.3 G north. long.. 4 west, about fifty miles j east of Delaware capes, where the sub marine with its human cargo was re ' ported resting on the hotlom. The word also was conveyed to the navy department at Washington, which evidently did no* know anything about it, until thirty hours after the S-3 hal gone down. While navy rescue ships plunged through the darkness to the aid of the submarine the General Goethals stood by ; to lend what aid it could. The submarine was found to be at a sharp angle down by the bow so the stern was much nearer the surface. It was evident that the Goethals would not be able to get the submersible to the surface before the air within It wa* ex hatist^fl. Men from re* cue vessels attached the task of 1 >*ing a bole through the submarine And introducing a hose through whidb fresh air could be pumped while the work of raising the S-5 went , ahead. This endeavor was perilous, but the men went at it with a will and soon a stream of clean.' fnesh air brought new hope to the sailors Inside and staved off ! the smothering death which had come so close. After the S-5 was brought to the sur face her sailors and officers, one hy One, i climbed out and were taken aboard the Alantbus. As each one appeared, haggard and worn, blinking at the early morning sun j light after the many hours of darkness, i the rescuers cheered. A cable was passed to the wallowing submarine, one end of it sticking out of i the sea, the other pointing toward the j bottom and the slow trip toward land was begun. I INDIANA SAILOR GUNNER ON 9-3. The S-5 was in charge of Lieut Com mander Charles M. Cook Jr,, of Ar kansas. Other officers detailed to the S-5 on Aug. 1 were Lieut. J. T. Gresham, En sign R. J. Bailey Longatff of Nebraska, and Gunner Robert Holt of Indiana. The accident to the S-5 occurred when she made a “crash dive.” which caused her to be partially flooded, a later dis patch stated. This was Commander Cook's second thrilling experience with a submarine. ! He was commander of the submarine ; E-2 in 1916 when a battery exploded on that ship In Brooklyn navy yard, caus ing several deaths. A court of inquiry exonerated Com mander Cook, placing the blame for the accident upon faulty construction. NEW NAVAL HERO ON LIST WASHINGTON, Sept. 3.—Another name lias been added to the list of naval heroes, and it Is that of Lieutenant Com mander Charles M. Cook, Jr., In com mand of the United States submarine S-5 according to dispatches received by the navy department regarding the fate of the submarine which was sub merged for nearly forty-eight hours. Although in a greatly weakened con dition Lieutenant Commander Cook re mained aboard his vessel during all of tne rescue work. A message received here stated he was the last man taken aboard the rescuing ship, the U. s. S. Alantheus. Ills condition was reported to be serl tus, although h* was responding to treat ment.

WRANGLE SEEN TONIGHT WHEN BUDGET IS UP Indicated Discussion Will Not Be Cut and Dried. FULL HOUSE EXPECTED Unless all signs fall the public hear ing on the Indianapolis annual budget before the city council tonight will be no cut and dried affair, despite the fact that the summary of the budget pub lished by City Controller Robert H. Bry son and other department heads, Is far from giving the public any real basis on which to make Inquiries. Robert E. Tracy, director of the bureau of municipal research of the Chamber of Commerce, has lnrited all business men’s organizations to send delegations, and he himself Is expected to have some thing to say, having been able to obtain possession of one of the three complete copies of the budget. Sir. Tracy said he would like to see the budget taken up Item by item. Leaders of the council, realizing that they are to sit In more of a Judicial than an Inquisitorial capacity, have re quested Mayor Charles W. Jewett to see that either the heads of every city de partment or men who may represent them responsibly are present at the hearing. COUNCIL TAKING NO CHANCES. The council does not Intend to answer the questions which' should be asked of' the men who prepared the various estimates on which funds for the main tenance of the city next year must be appropriated. Let the department heads answer to the citizens directly, the councllmen say. "I hope we have a very representative body of citizens at the hearing,” said Russell Willson, republican member ot the council, and In most matters sup-, porters of the Jewett administration. "I have advocated that citizens come to 1 the meeting In large numbers, prepared to ask intelligent, searching questions. "I feel there are many things In the budget about which citizens might very properly Inquire, tor there are some things that I wish to know before I pass on It." Members of the council expressed reall- ‘ zatlon of the fact that the public has been aided poorly In preparing Itself to In quire Into the way In which the Jewett administration Intends to spend the peo ple's money next year through the In adequate publication of estimates to which ihe officials resorted. MANY ITEMS ARE WITHHELD. It Is pointed out that the so-called! "budget" which was published legally; contained an approximate total of not more than 290 to 230 items, while the real budget, of which only three copies are thought to be In existence, contains several thousand. Department beads defended their pub- 1 llcatlon of totals instead of detailed Items by saying that publication of the com plete estimates would be too much trou ble and entail too much expense for ad- i vertislng. Persons who like to see public affairs , conduttcd across ths top Instead of un der tfce table, had little' patience with this explanation, seeing In the limited publication only the Intent to “get bv”j under the law, and not to give to the people anv real Information as to the administration plans. Mr. Wilson Is one of those who would like to see the complete facts adver tised. “The budget Itself snd not Just a summary of It, ought to be published, because no one can get a real Idea of the estimates from the limited form,” j be snid COUNCIL ALSO IS PATIENf E SHY. The council also is known to be more ! or less out of patience with tho delay In getting the budget into it* hands ! during the three years of the Jewett j : administration. j Last year the council had time to do ; little more than give the estimates one J fleeting glimpse before it was necessary to pass lt. This year lt ha* been In the hands of the council a little more than two weeks and thl, the coiincliiaen said, was far too short a time to give it any real item j by Item study as should he done if their full responsibility of protecting the pub- j He interest is to be lived up to. I “We are going to notify the mayor and i all the department heads the first of next i year that we wish the budget to be In j our hands on ox before July 18,” aaid j Mr. Willion. “There is no excuse for holding it up j until the tax valuation Is received from j the auditor late In August. “If we can get it by Jnly 15 we will j have time to glv it real study.” ThU is also the Idea of the other eoun ctlmen, Mr. Willson said. The committees appointed by some of i the organizations, which Intend to have representatives at; the hearing are as follows: AMONG THOSE TO BE PRESENT. Optimists Club—Frnak A. Todd, Scott j Brewer, ft. L. Davidson, H. K. Ostrora and G. R. Raub. Hoosier Motor Club— Roy E. Adsms, Edward W. Harris. Orlando D. Haskett, Dick Miller and C. W. Wells. • Board of Trade —Fred Hoke.

MEXICO CITY, Sept. 3.—The first indi cation of the possibility of nerious dis sension over the presidential eleetton Sun day developed today when the national republican party formally protested against the candidacy of Gen.

The letter to De La Huerta ut-ged him not to deliver the presidency to Obre gon.

WITNESSES SUMMONED CHICAGO, Sept. 3.—The week-end lulls In the senate committee's investigation of funds is being used by both republicans and democrats in marshaling forces for next week's battle roj.il. Democrats were more active than re publicans here today. E. N. Moore, who yesterday put new life Into the inquiry by his arrival with new leads for the committee, conferred with party leaders and continued to give out interviews. Moore and the other democratic lead ers united in asserting that they have now “put it up to” the committee to do gome real investigation concerning Gov. Cox's three-fold charge—that the repub licans were preparing to raise a corrup tion fund of $15,000,000; that sinister In terests had their check books ready to buy an underhold on the government by aiding Harding's election and that profiteers and those desiring to see the tayonet used to control labor were In league with the G. 0. P. Moore said one Important “lead” has already heen given the committee through testimony regarding William Barnes’ "militant propaganda” enterprise snd the pledges of support to it from men and corporations of great wealth. MOORE PROMISES TO POINT THE WAT. Another lead will be given, he said, when he testifies at the resumption of the hearings next Tuesday. That lead, he declared, will point the way to the evidence proving Cox's $15,000,000 slush fund < bsrge. Will H. Hays and other republican leaders pooh-poohed the suggestion that Moore or Cox "had anything on” them. Hays and Fred Upbam. republican treasurer, said Moore has brought a lot of "old stuff” to the committee. They said their only defense against his charge that a vast secret money raising organ ization was built, under direction of a professional money raiser will be a repe tition of the denial they made when this charge was first made. Members of the senate “slush fund” committee left Chicago today, following adjournment, until next Thursday, with out hearing Edmund H. Moore, Gov. Cox's personal emissary. Moore appeared before the committee yesterday, but when it wna learned bis testimony would concern only leads to evidence of s $15,000,000 republican cam paign fund, the committee adjourned un til Tuesday without further queationing. Before adjournment the committee, in executive session, leaned subpoenas for the following persona; Harry M. Biair, Marion, 0., “financial wizard” of the republican campaign. Mra.

Henry M. Blair, so-called "financial wizard" of the republican campaign and rsaistant to Treasurer Fred W. Upham of the republican national committee, de nied in a statement that he is the “copn try'a greatest money-getter," as charged by Edward H. Moore, personal emissary of Gov. Cox. Moore declared that Blair was the “greatest professional money-getter in the country and head of a great syndicate of paid collectors who had piled up a fund of $16,000,000 for the republican cam paign.” ”1 am "Dow under subpoena* to appear before the senatorial subcommittee," Blair said, “but there will be nothing sensational about my testimony because I have no sensational testimony to give. “I am a mere cog in ihe machine. “? am not entitled either to the fame or notoriety Mr. Moore would confer on me,” Blair said.

POLES DECIDE ON RUSS FIGHT TO BITTER END Casting Aside of Interna tional Diplomacy Is Seen. WASHINGTON. Sept. 3.—Poland, cast ing International diplomacy aside, has decided to hght the force of soviet Rus sia to a finish, even tbongb she must make the fight alone* according to the Interpretation of officials here today on the Polish note made public late yes terday. Poland, In her note. Ignored all the requests and suggestions of Secretary of State Colby, and while officials refused to make any comment, the Inference was plain that this government will not strain itself to aid Poland. Secretary Colby, In his note to Poland, after stating that the first Polish in vasion of Russia helped the bolshevik cause, suggested that Poland make a formal declaration of Its intention to refrain from territorial aggressions In Russia: that It announce Its war efforts were not against a united Russia, and that it remain within the ethnolographic boundaries fixed by- the peace confer ence. POLAND IGNORES THESE REQUESTS. The Polish government In its reply Ig nores these requests insofar as specific and direct reply Is concerned, and calls attention to the fact that Poland is play ing a lone hand and that from a military standpoint she must rely on her own strength and be governed by military necessities. “The most sincere desire to live on peacefully and friendly terms with her eastern neighbors," is expressed by Po land, and this is-Jtie closest approach in the note to an answer to the American suggestions. Secretary Colby's only comment on the Polish reply was that, "It is a very sat isfactory discussion oftthe matter.” State department officials point out that | the note is a general assurance on the part of Poland that the warfare It is now engaged in is purely defensive and that Poland will not continue aggressive tactics after the safety of Poland Is as sured through military success. Tbts assurance, it was said, is about all the United States could expect at this stage of the conflict. WON’T DISCUSS NEXT STEP When Secretary Colby left the white house, after nearly an hour conference, he stated that he could not discuss the conference or the next step in the Polish situation. "The newspapers leaped to a conclu sion this morning for which much can be said.” the secretary declared, “but I am sure that It is the right conclusion. The note must be read In the light of con ditions over there. We must not too readily place the construction on the note that Poland is evasive.” RUSSIANS REACH BREST LITOVSK LONDON, Sept. 3.—Russian troops on the Polish front have reached Brest- Lltovsk in their counter offensive, it is (Continued on Page Eighteen.)

Dear Sir—This community ran sympathize with you In your efforts to make Charlie Jewett's garbage plant a paying proposition, but it. can not understand why you should be so loathe to admit what every one else knows—that It can not be done. There Is really no good in pre tending that the sanitary district did not get beatuifully stung when it was forced to pay $175,000 for this SIO,OOO plant. Your efforts might better be di rected toward making out a method by which the sanitary district can rid itself of the plant and tb an nual drain of thousands of dollars necessary to maintain It.
