Democratic Candidate for County Prosecu
tor, Paul G. Davis , Pulls Curtain Aside
on Republican Party Methods.
Declaring that George A. H. Shideler, superintendent of the state re
formatory at Jeffersonville, recommended to Gov. Goodrich that the sen
tence of Arthur C. Whiteside, who was convicted after the horrible method
in which he, as county undertaker, handled the pauper dead was revealed,
be commuted from two to fourteen years to one to fourteen years, Paul G.
Davis, democratic nominee for county prosecutor, denounced, in a speech
in Odd Fellows hall, Hamilton avenue and Washington street, the ac
quiescence in the abuse of the pardoning power by Gov. Goodrich. Mr.
Davis said: v
"Thre is one spot that all mankind
keep hallowed —the last resting place
of its dead —the grave. Whether It be
Christian, Jew or gentile, civilized or
barbarian, man has always held sacred
the spot where all that is mortal rests
.in its last sleep. To commemorate that
spot mankind has always placed upon It
some mark which all respect and revere.
Whether that work be a costly shaft of
marble or the humble cross upon which
the Redeemer died, all humanity bows
in silence and does homage.
‘‘With bleeding heart and trembling
limbs mothers, fathers, sons, daughters,
husbands and wives, have crept to that
spot and mourned in silence since time
immemorial. They have placed on that
spot the most costly gifts In human ad
miration; they have bent their knees and
wept; they have poured forth in prayer
and on that spot many have laid down
and died in grief. So great is the natu
ral instinct to there give vent to grief
that dogs have crept to it and laid
down their lives on the graves of their
"There is one offense at which all man
kind shrinks in abhorence. There is one
offense which the most depraved can not
countenance. It is the desecration of the
9grave for which the human tongue has
no name to adequately describe.
"Vet, my friends, this is an ofTense
that has been committed by a member
of the Marion county republican ma
chine, a republican officeholder, the man
to whom the republican county officials
awarded the contract for the burial of
our pauper dead, Arthur C. Whiteside.
"it is a fatr inference that the con
tract was given to him because he had
well served Uis party. In its published
report of May 14, 1919, the state board
of accounts, after making an investiga
tion of this affair, stated that Whiteside
buried a dog named "Woody” with the
bodies of three babies; that be put bodies
In graves ranging from eleven to eight
een inches deep and such that rodents
and vermin entered and made nests in
them; that be collected money from the
county for the burial of person* whose
relatives also paid for their burial.
“This report says In part:
“ ‘Before this grave was opened two
holes were noticed running from the
surface of the ground down into the
coffin. 7he top and insides could easily
be viewed from the surface, and It was
plain to l>e seen tbat these holes ran into
the coffin, and It was plain to be seen
tbat these holes bad been used by ver
" ‘We were told by a party that they
had "seen groundhogs and a large snake
running Into the grave.” This grave,
when opened, showed a skeleton which
had been too long for the coffin, as the
feet had been Jammed down Into the
same, and the head had been jammed to
the left it was almost turned to tbe
shoulder. This had evidently been a
rendezvous of vermin, for to the left of
tbe skull could be seen a nest made of
weed stems and wheat straw gathered
from a nearby wheat field. No hox was
used to place the coffin In. This was
grave No. 38.
“ ‘We also opened a grave which con
tained eleven small bojy>s In which were
burled the bodies of eleven babies. The*.’
boxes were exceedingly crude, hand-made
lutxes, and eight of them rested on the
bottom of the grave and three oil top
of the eight.’
“Os the cases for which claims have
been filed and allowances made against
the county, th report reads:
“ ‘We find eleven In which no service
whatever was performed by Mr. White

Indiana G. O. P. Committee
Received $94,202 From
National Body.
Disclosures that the republican
national committee in the 1916 cam
paign actually paid a total of $94,-
202.42 to Frank D. Stalnaker, as
treasurer of the Indiana republican
state central committee from March
14 to Nov. 15, 1916. were found to
day in sworn campaign reports which
j have been on file in the office of
County Clerk Richard Sipe.
The report also discloses that the
total receipts of the republican state
central committee for the 1916 cam
paign in Indiana were $258,838.29,
which includes the $94,202.42 from
i the republican national committee,
as well as a balance of $650.54 which
was on hand March 14, 1916, and
| various large sums of money “bor
rowed” during the campaign.
This total of $245,992.66 Is in addition
to unpaid bills totaling $23,595.86 at tbe
time the report was made.
The report of former Treasurer Stal
naker throws much light on tJio charges
of Gov. Cox that the total Indianapolis
allotment In the conspiracy to buy the
presidency this fall Is $123,0U0.
The republicans contended recently be
fore the senate Investigating committee
tbat the Indiana allotment for the 1920
campaign was SIOO,OOO, of which $13,000
actually had been raised.
Stalnaker's 1916 sworn report also
throws considerable light on the system
used by the republicans then in swelling
their campaign fund. *
The report discloses that the state
central committee used two methods of
getting the cash to put over Charles
Evans Hughes in 1916.
One way to get the coin In those days,
the report reveals, was to receive the
money from contributors and tbe other
method was to “borrow” It from Will H.
Hays, wlio was state chairman, but now
is national chairman, and who Is direct
ing the raising of money for the national
According (o the report of Stalnaker.
the Indiana republican state central
committee obtained “loans” from Will H.
Hays on the following dates.
Ang. 17, 1916—Loan from W. 11. Hays
Nov. 4. 1916—Loan from W. 11. Havs,
Nov. 4, 1916—Loan from WUll 11. Hays,
TOTALED f27.9M.40.
The total loans from the accommodat
ing Mr. Hays amounted to $27.!.34.f0, the
report indicates.
This surprising generosity on tbe part
of Mr. Unys is one of the several mys
teries of Stalnaker's report.
The report shows clearly there were
uumerous contributors who were not
given a chance to “loan" their money
to the republican state central committee
in 1916 but gave it out with no otrlngs
tied to it.
None of these comes under the SI,OOO

Minnie Abbott, a beauty of two years.
As my “bull” language Is very poor,
I had some difficulty in getting the at
tention of the Sultan and I discovered
to my horror that he was very fond of
winking at mo.
Being informed that this was the Sul

that he was ready for an interview, I
proceeded to put my questions.
I learned that Roan Sultan had made
tho trip from Farmland to rndianapolls,
a distance of sixty-five miles, in his

his majesty was, of course, a little
fatigued by the trip.

illustrious dad was being interviewed.

Efforts to Prevent Public In
quiry Only Partly
The efforts of the Jewett administra
tion to prevent any general public lu
qnlry into the estimates contained In the
1921 city budget, recognizable In the
failure of officials to advertise anything
but the appropriation ordinance con
taining only the most general of totals
and In their failure to prepare more
than three complete copies of tbe docu
ment, only partially were successful at
the public hearing on the estimates be
fore the city council last night.
Robert E. Tracy, director of the bu
reau of municipal research of tbe Cham
ber of Commerce, who was the only per
son outaide of the official family to rc
| celve a complete copy of the budget,
came to tbe meeting chock full of in
But Mr. Tracy was tbe only citizen who
asked a question, aside from one woman
who inquired about a matter not con
tained in the budget and two men who
asked one question each.
However, Mr. Tracy's work was pro
ductive of some beneficial results, for. In
the face of tbe fact that almost 100 rep
resentative business men and fifteen new
ly enfranchised women were present,
there was nothing left for Mayor Jewett,
who was at tbe meeting, and his depart
ment heads, to do but to make tbe
changes suggested.
Lacking the Information on which to
base questions, the business men and
women voters were forced to refrain from
taking any part In the hearing, other
than that of listeners.
With one or two exceptions there was
nothing vitally interesting to listen to.
One of these exceptions waa an illu
minating series of questions by council
men and answers by board of works
members and employes about why A. O.
Meloy, street commissioner, is permitted i
to use a city car, not marked with the
city embiAu, ou Sunday.
The other exception waa tbe frequent
questioning by Mr. Tracy of the ad
visability of lumping the autna needed
for the purchase of new equipment In
tbe same fund tn the appropriation or
dinance with tbe stuns needed for main
tenance and supply.
Practically all departments followed
this procedure.
An a result of Mr. Tracy’s pointing
out that It would lie possible for de
partment heads to upend all of their
maintenance and equipment fund for
maintenance without spending a cent for
equipment, and vice versa. City Con
troller Robert H. Bryson said he would
agree to amend the ordinance go ns to
make separate funds for equipment ant

Tho tense moment came at the closo
of a hypothetical cross-examination ?n
which the republican national chairman
figuratively sat in tho prisoner's dock
and Gov. Cox played the role of prose
cuting attorney.
I want to put Will Hays on the stan.l
today,” tbe governor began, “and ask
i him these questions:
I “You say there was no quota assigned
I anywhere and yet In the official bulletin
of Aug. 16 telegrams are quoted stating
that ‘Cincinnati business men have un
derwritten quota.'
“ ‘Steubenville, has nearly com
pleted quota.'
‘Toledo actively soliciting to complete
quota by Aug. 15.’
‘Tbe atate of Maine has oversub
scribed Its quota 95,000.’
‘Chattanooga oversubscribed its quota
this week.’
“ ‘Large qqotas assigned to Twelfth
Indiana congressional district.’
'* ’Northern counties In Colorado have
practically raised their quotas.’
“Now, coming more concretely to the
question of responsibility, you deny any
knowledge of quotas and yet Fred H.
Upham, treasurer of the republican na
tional committee, in the official bulletin,
Aug. 16, says that;
Amounts sought In each community'
j were a part of ’the campaign of general
| subscription initiated by Will H. Hays
and carried through by tbe treasurer'*
“If you told tbe truth on the stand
under oath, then Mr. Upham in his offi
clal capacity misrepresented you. This
contradictory circumstance shows that.
you are either a perjurer or Mr. Upham
is a falsifier.”
i Tbe governor paused a mement, then
continued with the manner of a judge
pronouncing sentence:
“If the latter be true, then It 13 your
duty to discharge him as treasurer. If
you do not do so then the American
people can draw their own conclusion.”
Senator Harding also came In for a
grilling at the hands of the democratic
candidate during his discussion of tbe
league of nations.
Declaring It was possible for Harding,
ns senator. to escape 1,161 quorum and
roll call*, Cox said: "But you can not do
| cither as candidate or as president,” and
called upon the republican candidate to

I Hague tribunal.
"Senator Harding.” said the governor,
“in your speech of Aug. 28. you say.
i'M hat then becomes of the argument
that congress, not tbe prealdent, might
keep us out of war?’
"Technically, of course. It could do so.
Morally, with an equal certainty, it could
not do so, nor would it ever do so. The
American people would never permit *
repudiation of a debt of honor.”
“‘Congress would never dare make this
nation appear as a welcher. as It would
appear and would be in such au event
before the eyes of the world.’*'
“Answer to this. Senator Harding, yes
c-r no: %
“Do you mean that you are opposed to
our assuming any moral obligation in
our International relations?’
“Then, in the same speech, yon say:
“ ‘lt is not uncommon for the advo
cates of the league of Versailles to con
trast unfavorably The Hague tribunal,
upon the ground tbe tribunal lacks teeth.
Very well, let's put teeth into It.’
“I’lease answer, yes or no in. the face
of your statement, to this question,” said
"Docs tba putting of into it mean
the assuming of an obligation to exert
moral or physical force, or both?
"Iu one part of your speech, you say
that this nation will not be able to ap
pear as a ‘welcher’ because no obligation
will he assumed. How do you reconcile
this with your program of ‘putting teeth’
into The Hague tribunal?
"This approaches tbe very crux of the
whole argument and the American peo
ple are entitled to know your mind.
There can be no evasion.
“It was possible In the senate for you
to escape 1.161 quorum and roll calls, but
you can not do It either as a candidate
or as president. You must answer yes
or no.
“Executive duties, unlike legislative,
make either absenteeism or clear evasion
