Y„ Oct. 7.—Brook lyn forged to the lead in the 1020 base ball Derby this afternoon when Sherrod Smith, pitching a three-hit game, sent the Indians down to defeat by a score of 2 to 1, The game count In the series stands two to one, with the Robins on the long end. and the teams travel to Cleve land tonight with the Robins In a favor able strategic position for the renewal ot hostilities In the Ohio city Saturday. Supported by a scintillating fielding de fense, Smith turned In one of the best pitched games ever seen In n world's aeries. He was never in danger. Cleve land's one run was directly due *o a schoolboy error by the veteran Zach Wheat In the fourth round when he lev Trie Speaker's vicious doubie roll be tween his legs to the fence. While he was retrieving the bnll the Indian chief easily completed the circuit. Without Wheat’s error Speaker would have been left ma rooned on the bases, as the ner.t batsmen were easy Infield outs. Ivy Olson, little Pete Kllduff and big Ed Konetchy furnished the fielding fire works of the fray. Olson covered ncrev of ground at short and his throwing was perfection Itself. Kilduff pulled two spec tacular fielding stunts, while Konetchy at first performed like a youngster. Righ* In the same class with this trio were George Burns, who snagged a foul with one hand out of a right field box, and Tommy Griffith, who made a catch in right field of the regular Speaker va riel}'. A couple of Texas I.eagners went to the credit of Steve O'Xeill. That was all the Indans could do. In spite ot their failure to solve Smith and the perfect Brooklyn defense, the Indians fought gamely to the end. They look far from being a beaten club, and seem ready to come back at Brooklyn with Mth fists Saturday. Real baseball weather prevailed today and the result was baseball enthusiasm of the world series variety for the first time In three days.

Joe Szendry, 35, Rnral Route 8 was the first man arrested, and the police say he tossed a Jug of whisky out of his car and that they got part of the broken jug containing enough of the liquor to be used as evidence. The next car to appear was piled high with keg* and boxes that the police are confident contained liquor, but the driver did not stop and the car raced la the di rection of the city.

Harding met Democratic queries as to his view about scrapping the league with the retort that It 1* futile to talk about scrapping something already scrapped. Declaring he does not wlah to risk the final solution of the problem by being too specific now. Harding said that as soon as possible after his election he will call the best minds of the country, In cluding Senators, Into couferetoe to for mulate his International program. Taking up the league, Harding advo cated an America wholly self-reliant and Independent politic Uy. “Whether President Wilson Is to bs blamed or thanked for tbe result It re mains that the Paris league has been scrapped by the hand of its chief archi tect," Harding said. SHAVING HAIR OFF HAIR. “The Issue as made by the Democratic president, the Democratic platform Hnd J the Democratic nominee docs not pre sent the question of whether .he.v shal favor some form of association among the nations for preserving international peace, but whether they favor the par ticular league proposed by , President Wilson. "The obligations are clear enough and specific enough. “I do not want to clarify these ob ligations; I want to turn my back on them. It Is not interpretation, but re jection that I am seeking. “M.v position Is that the proposed i league strikes a deadly blow at our' constitutional Integrity and surrenders to a dangerous extent our independence of action. The issue Is clear. “I understand the positidft of the i Democratic candidate and he understands I mine. “In simple words It Is that he favors going Into the league and I favor stay ing out “His position Is beyond cavil and It Is that we ahall go Into the Paris league without modification or substantial qualification. To such a betrayal of my countrymen 1 will never consent." Europe, Harding continued, is ready to recognize America’s moral leadership.

Grand Jury Frees Man Who Says He Attacked So Many Girls He Can’t Remember All of Them Although ho confessed to attacking so many little girls that he “could not remember ail of them," and was confronted in the city court with nine girls whom he admitted mistreating, Roy Linkenfelter, 24, 1109 North Jefferson avenue, walked out of the Marion County jail last Saturday with out ever being called upon to answer in court for his offenses. Linkenfelter was recommended for discharge by the Marion County grand Jury Oct. 2 and the explanation made today by Ralph Jones, deputy prosecutor in charge of the grand jury, was that “there was not sufficient evidence to justify his indictment." When Linkenfelter was captured after a police chase on Aug. 13, 1920, he confessed attacking an 8-year-old gM In the neighborhood of Roosevelt avenue and Haze! street. He said he had been in trouble before for the same thing and had “fixed” it up. “I Just can't help It," he declared to a representative of the Times, who assisted In his capture. When he was brought into court on Aug. 19, 1920, Linkenfelter waived a preliminary examination and was bound over to the grand Jury In the sum of $2,000. RECOMMENDED HIS DISCHARGE FOR LACK OF SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE. There were nine little girls, with their parents, In the courtroom wait ing to give testimony of attempted assaults on their person by him. Linkenfelter was remanded to the county Jail to await action by the grand Jury. The grand jury recommended his discharge Oct. 2 “for lack of sufficient evidence." Investigation discloses that the prosecuting attorney failed to bring to the grand Jury evidence which had previously been made public through the newspapers; that the prosecuting attorney failed to call as a witness the Rev. H. O. Kisner, 2610 Roosevelt avenue, pastor of the Fountain Street Methodist Church, who personally captured Linkenfelter following an as sault on one little girl, and held him until the police arrived. The Rev. Mr. Kisner today declared his intention of demanding that the grand Jury hear his testimony, even though It has seen fit to discharge the defendant. A search of the records of the criminal court discloses that Roy Link enfelter was arraigned In criminal court Dec. 3 r 1914, and charged with assault and battery with intent to commit a felony; that he was found guilty of assault and battery, the intent charge being dismissed, and was sen tenced to six months In the workhouse and fined $500; that tha Judgment and sentence were suspended during his good behavior. STORY CARRIED AT TIME OF ARREST. At the time of Llnkenfelter’s last ar rest the Times printed the following story: “It I were not s minister I would he s detective,” said Rev. 11. O. Kis ner, 2610 Roosevelt avenue, pastor of th# Fountain Street Methodist Church, today as he turned over to the po lice a man alleged to have attempt ed to assault sn 8-year-old girl. Th# prisoner was Roy Linkenfelter, 24. r-f 1109 North .Teffersvai avenue. He Is charged with assault and vacraney and Is held under a high bond.

M’CRAY KNOWN AS BUCKETSHOP OWNER AT HOME By Staff Correspondent.

There I* nothing sinister in Mr. Mc- Cray's connection with a "bucket shop,” but hta neighbors caa not help but com ment on the manner In which he has eliminated all reference to this avocation while on the stump discoursing on his “business ability."

Today he was to speak here and at Bowling Green, then swing down to Nash ville for a night meeting and tomorrow visit Paducah and Louisville. LEAGUE CONTINUES OUTSTANDING FEATURE. Cox said he would continue to mckethe League of Nations the outstanding feature of the campaign. He was watching to see whether Sen ator Harding would discuss this Issue at Des Moines today. Encouraging reports of the Kentucky and Tennessee fights were given the Governor by various Democratic lead ers who met his train here. There was considerable interest whether Cox would make any mention of Senator Shields of Tenness who voted with the Republicans severe; times dur ing the Senate treaty fight. PLUMB DECLINES DISCUSSION. En route from Columbus to Cincinnati, Cox conferred with Glenn E. Plumb, author of the Plumb plan for the opera tion of railroads. Plumb said he visited the Governor “by request," but declined to discuss his conference. Cox hus developed another cold during the last two days which may Interfere with his speaking. Goodrich Will Profit by Coal Price Fixing James P. Goodrich, Governor of In diana. issued a public statement Joly 13, 1920, relative to Indiana coal In which he said: “I know that It costs less than $3 a ton to put this cool on the ear. I know Just as well as I know that I am alive that I con take an ap propriation sufficient to purchase, operate or lease a mine and that I can mine that coal and place it on the car, operating 60 per cent of ca pacity, for less Ilian $t a ton.” On Oct. 6, the Indiana coal commis sion, of which Governor James P. Good rich Is a member, fixed $3 a ion as a fair price for ec&l operators to charge for mine-run coal at the pits The Indiana coal commission, much touted as a price-fixing body, that was to relieve the coa> consumers of Indiana of “intolerable" conditions relative to the market prices of coal, ftxe) a scale of prices ranging from $2.80 a ton foi screenings up to $5.85 a ton for the best grade of Indiana coal at the mines. The price operators are permuted to charge under this Goodrich commission Is thus established at from 80 oeats a ton Usl to $3.85 a ton more thau Good rich himself declared mss than three months ago was the cost of nuctlng this coal on the cars. Mr. Goodrich Is well qualified to sp*nk as an expert on tbe cost of .pera’ilg s coal mine, for in a statement made to rue State Legislature July 19. 1920, Mr. feroodrlch admitted buying SIO,OOO ot the lw><’lc of the Lenoir Coal Company and Bvlug it to his son as a wedding pr ■Lt and on that day in zsComsoo to th< NO. 128. COAL SUPPLIES NOT AVAILABLE AT NEW PRICES Commission’s Action Puts Stop to Movement of Fuel. COURT BATTLE IS SEEN Not a pound of Indiana coal was for Bale In Indianapolis today at margins of profit fixed by the Special Coal and Food Commission, so far as could be deter mined. Coal operators, in statements, took the attitude that the orders of the commis sion do not apply to contract coal. This also Is apparently the attitude of retailers who are refusing to abide by the commission’s orders. They contend that the order also does not apply to coal mined outside of the State and shipped Into the State. An authority on coal production said that 95 per cent of the coal produced In Indiana Is contract coal and not sub ject to tbe price fixed by the commission. It la pointed out that, consequently, under the act of the Legislature In spe cial session, the commission’s ruling* are confined to a very small percentage of the coal produced. OPERATORS’ ATTITUDE IN EDITORIAL. Operators cited aa editorial by K. (J Adam* in the last Issue of tne American Coal Miner as expressive of their atti tude. The editorial brands the attempts of the Goodrich administration to fix coal prices as “Bunko Control" and state* that the “whole scheme Is a colossal •bnnko game’ and predicts that “the at tempt to penalize the coal operators of the state to boost the political aspira tions of Governor Goodrich, or to swell his returns on Investments In public utilities, will fall and the coal consum ers who have held off buying will pay the market price for coal, as the people In other States are doing.” The editorial reads; “The Indiana coal Industry i* about to be penalized for the high prices for spot coal which have prevailed for the past four months. “The State coal commission, created by a special session of the State legis lature, at the behest of Governor Good rich, who Is interested In coal proper ties, but whose other interests in public utilities outweigh his coal holdings, will name coal prices and margins within the next few days. “The operators failed in an attempt in the Federal Court to enjoin the com mission from exercising the control pro vided In the bill creating It. "Contract coal is not subject to the prices to be fixed by the commission. Interstate shipments are also exempted. "The most profitable markets for In diana coal are located In Illinois and Michigan. Taking Into account the rail road contracts and the Illinois and Michi gan business, the bulk of Indiana coal Is contracted up, and even the tonnage sold in the State, excepting domestic, is prac tically all contracted. “It will, of course, be necessary for the Governor's commission to deliver coal to whoever wants it at prices fixed by the commission. If the political plan of coal control is to succeed. This the commis sion can not do. Operators will fill their contracts In other States upon which they are dependent for business In normal times. "Consumers now holding off buying awaiting the reduced prices to be fixed by the commission will be clamoring for coal at the price named. Unable to-*lle llver, the commission will attempt to confiscate coal mined In the State for State consumers and then the operators will go Into court, make the necessary showing and no doubt will be sustained In their right to fill their contracts and supply the usual markets that theyhave served. The attempt to penalize the coal oper ators of the State to boost th# political aspirations of Governor Goodrich or to swell his returns on Investments in pub lic utilities will fail, and the coal con sumers who have held off buying will pay the market price for coal, aa tha people In other States are doing. “The whole scheme Is s colossal bunko game.’ born In the mind of a scheming politician, who has made a miserable failure aa chief executive of the State In every particular.” s . The attitude of retailers, Jobber* and operators was voiced In no uncertain terms by representative* of tbe three classes of dealer* who complained to Jesse E. Escbbach, head of the commis sion. The Bunting Coal Company of Warsaw, of which L. E. Bunting is president, filed the first formal complaint. The company will receive a hearing at Its request at 10 o’clock Monday morning, when It will present Its operating cost sheets and data which President Bunting declares will show that his company can not operate at a marginal profit of $2.23 a ton, as fixed by the commission. He claims his company can no’ operate at less than $2.45 a ton and survi e. Chairman Eschbach said other deal ers. retailers, wholesalers, operators, or others who can show the commission they can not operate under the order* Issued that the companies affected will be re-classified and a fair effort will be made to give them consideration. Inquiries at the coal yards showed that onl ya very few have any Indiana coal for sale and that these are asking $10.50 to $11.25 a ton. This condition exist* despite the fact (Continued on Page Four.) Patoka Coal Company he told the Leg islature : "My family and myself are financially Interested In the auccess of these two mines." Previously to that time he had admitted that be had owned stock tn the Olob (Continued on Page Five.) OPEN LETTER TO ED WABMUTH, Chairman Republican State Com mittee. Dear Sir—ls It not a fact that there were presented to you ss chairman of the Republican State committee reasons why you should Interfere in the fight between J. W Feeler and Warren T. McCray for the Republican nomination for Gov ernor? Do you not think that as an ad vocate of good government yon should now make public the reasons thst were once offered to you as sufficient to Justify an effort to have Mr. McCray retire? Is It fair to the voters of the Re publican party to keep them In Ig norance of charges made by other Republicans against the man yon expect them to support for the Governorship ? Why do you hesitate to reveal the Inside story of the McCray-Feeler fight?
