where there is organization * through
whiclj. labor can articulate.
"The Democratic party has stood for
the principle of collective bargaining.
“Working conditions in the mine, the

that things inimical to the health, the

“A workman Incapacitated through an
occupational disease, or accident, or a

“To prevent and correct this by way of

PLAN RIGID DRY
Anti-Saloon League Officials
Confer in Washington.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 15.—A drive for
more rigid enforcement of the prohibi
tion law opened here today, when State
and national officers of the Anti-Salooa
League met In conference. —
While the conference was not called
for special purposes, Wayne B. Wheeler,
general counsel of the league, in ad
dressing the gathering, declared that it
\ has been learned “liquor interests are
collecting money to elect n President
and Congress whom they claim will fa

"Any candidate who accepts the In
dorsement and financial aid of the liquor
Interests to accomplish their purpose will
have a hard time to convince law-abiding
citizens that, he is worthy of their sup
port,” Wheeler declared.
Means to prevent corruption of the

permit the law to be violated,” Wheeler
“As bad ns they are, they are saints
in comparison to the outlawed liquor

make rnoqgy out of a lawless traffic.”
Dry lenders were urged to bring about
closer co-operation betweeu local and
Federal officials in the enforcement of
prohibition, as one of the most effective
means of wiping out illegal traffic In
TO A. O. MELOY,
Dear Sir—The disposition to in
vestigate the quality of the patches
you have been putting into Indian
apolis streets is largely the result of
a fairly well-founded suspicion that
a good many of those fifty-three Re
publican committeemeu who belong
to the city administration are on
your pay roll.
If politics interferes with streot
work, by all means quit the street
work until politics Is adjourned.
Tfifere may have been a mistaken
idea in the minds of the people who
pay the taxes that good streets are
more desirable than a Republican
government, but tbe powers that
hired you to do the impossible task
of providing both are a lot more In
terested In political success.
Keep on loadtng your pay roll
with political workers and you will
outlast tbe streets.
