JAMES WATSON
PUT ON GRILL IN
ELKHART TALK
Hoosier Senator Asked to Ex
plain Notorious Packer’s
Speech.
COLVER FACES NOMINEE
Bt a Staff Correspondent.
ELKHART. Ind.. Oct. 7—Senator James
E. Watson of Indiana was requested by
William B. Colver, former chairman of
the Federal Trade Commission, in an ad
dress here last night, to give the people
of Indiana intimate details of his at
tack on the commission at Just the time
the big meat packers were under in
vestigation.
Watson was asked if the speech he
made in the Senate was not crepared and
handed to him to be delivered, where
and how and when he got the material
for the speech, who framed the charges
he made against the commission and
many particulars as to the activities of
Clarence Martin. Indianapolis attorney,
who was engaged by the special Senate
committee which Watson had ordered to
investigate the Federal Trade Commis
sion.
Colver made his attack on Watson at
the conclusion of an address to the
State League of Women Voters on the
high co it of living. He said he had en
deavored to force Watson to prove
charges he made against the commis
sion, that Watson had in fact charged
him (Colver) with being a traitor, and
that when Watson dodged every effort,
he (Colver) came to Indiana on his own
expense account and without consulta
tion with any one or any political or
ganization, to face Watson in his home
State and to drive him to complete the
attack he started.
COLVER WAS
CHAIRMAN THEN.
Colver was chairman of the commis
sion at the time the Senate ordered an
Investigation of the five big meat pack
ers.
The Investigation was made and is
revealed such startling information that
the packers voluntarily entered into
agreements to dissolve their various
holdings.
The Senate prepared legislation and
was considering it when suddenly Wat
son arose in the Senate and made a long
attack on supposed Bolshevism existing
In governmental departments.
He charged particularly that the com
mission was honeycombed with Bolshe
vists at the time the packer investiga
tion was made.
Senator Kenyon, Republican, who was
praised highly tonight by Colver, de
manded that Watson prove bis charges
and forced, with Watson's aid, the ap
pointment of a committee to investi
gate.
The investigation seems to have been
started and then abandoned, as nothing
has been beard of it.
The Watson speech was a sensation.
Coming as it did and being so timed
,es to have Its relation with the packer
■lnvestigation and hiving been made at
■e time a special agent of the packers
Bias In the gallery, an agent who was o
particular friend of Watson's, and then
■being followed by an expose of packer
i Inquiries of Watson, the entire matter
' caused the utmost attention.
ATTACKS EXCESS
I'ROFITS TAX.
Colver in his speech attacked the ex
cess profits tax as causing in part the
high cost of living and denounced the
last Republican Congress for Its failure
to repeal this tax, warned the women
that It Is war which Is the cause of
the high cost of living and that suc
cess for the Republicans will mean a
war with Mexico, and added that those
who profit through wars are those who
are fighting the League of Nations.
Aside from taxation, he said monopo
listic control of foodstuffs and con
spiracies In restraint of trade assist in
adding to the high cost of living.
This statement caused him to reveal
lor the first time many Intimate de
tails of the big meat packer-Watsou
commission story.
He charged that reactionaries in the
Senate of which Watson was one. or
ganized the Senate and immediately ap
pointed George A. Sanderson, legislative
agent for the packers, as secretary to
the Senate, a highly important office.
“He is there now. He will stay as
long as the oligarchy stays—and packer
legislation sleeps," he said.
Ife recalled how a Republican adminis
tration had attacked meat packer con
tr< 1 and how Senator Lodge had de
nounced the packers.
TELIIB OF
V YTSON’S ACTIVITY.
He then told how Watson, on Oct.
20. 1919, “first gave a speech to the
newspapers and then delivered It in the
Senate,” in which he said he had been
Investigating sociallstum. Bolshevism and
anarchy in various Government depart
ment. and especially In the Federal
Trade Commission.
Watson demanded an Investigation by
• special committee. Watson added that
“in no wise is this a defense of the
packers.”
“The Senate referred the matter to a
committee to whose members Senator
Watson talked and finally, early in Jan
uary, money was provided and the com
mittee was appointed," said Colver.
“Senator Watson was made a member
of that committee. Long before this,
however, a lawyer, Clarence Martin of
Indianapolis, was employed on the Wat
son charges. Martin was traveling
about. He was under expense. He was
Interviewing witnesses. He was claim
ing to act for and by the authority of a
Senate committee weeks and weeks be
fore any such had been authorized and
appointed."
<sColver then went on to tell how Mar
tin eventually was hired by the Sen
ate committee but how no trial or in
vestigation followed. He then added:
“I ask Senator Wntson to tell the peo
ple of Indiana whether or not the speech
In substantially the form In which he
delivered It, did not come Into his hands
typewritten? If so, who gave It to him?
“I ask Senator Watson whether or not
in fact, he had, to quote his own words,
‘for several weeks been Investigating?’
If so, when, where, how ?
“If not. who did frame the charges?
Who gave them to Watson?
“Who employed Martin before the Sen
ate sub-committee did and who paid his
railroad fare, his hotel bills and his sal
ary for the weeks and weeks before he
was employed by the Senate committee?”
ColVer will make other speeches in the
State In his endeavor to force Watson's
hand and to reveal fully tho complete
story of Watson’s activities In connection
with the celebrated speech.

“Well, now, Barbara Anne, do you

said Father Andrew with one of his nice,
slow smiles.
“No—l understand you’re calculating to

GOODRICH WILL
PROFIT UNDER
NEW COAL PRICES
(Continued From Tate On.)
Mining Company and had given U to
his son as a birthday present.
Mr. Goodrich, as a member of the coal
commission classified the Patoka Coal
Company, In which he and his family
are financially interested, and the Lenoir
company, in which bis son received stock
as a wedding present In Group 1, In ttfe
price-fixing order.
This classification means that these
two companies may charge for coal at
1 their mines $3.25 a ton for lump coal;
$3 a ton for mine run coal and $2.80
a ton for screenings.
Yet the Governor is on record, pub
licly, as having declared:
“I know that it cost* less than $3
a ton to put this coal on the enrs."
i Operators In Indiana ought not to lodge
I any complaint over the price-fixing actlv
; Hies of the Governor as a coal cornmis
| sioner, for has be not provided for mines
j In which he and his family are financially
| Interested, a profit over the cost of put
i ting coal on the car ranging from 80
| cents for screenings to $1 for mine run
i aud $1.25 for lump?
| And are not the other operators stm
i Harly classed permitted to reap the same
| profits as the operators of the mines In
! which the Goodrich family Is Interested?
| The promulgation yesterday of the or
der of the Goodrich coal commission fix
: ing tho profits for the Goodrich mines
| disclosed that the Globe Mining Com-
I pany is not licensed to mine coal in
j Indiana.
This Is the company which gave James
P. Goodrich and Ward H. Watson (broth
er of Senator Watson) $25,000 of Its cap
ital stock ‘‘for services.”
It Is also the company that opened a
m ne In Pike County by the use of con
victs from the State peual farm for
whose services the company agreed to
pay the State in coal.
It Is also the company In which the
i overnor's son was an officer and director

! in the mine in Pike County,
i REDUCTION COMPANY
CASE RECALLED.
The failure of this company to take
out a license to mine coal under the
Goodrich mining law would Indicate that
It is no longer actively engaged in the
business, but tbe records of the Secre
tary of State do not disclose that it has
been dissolved, as was the Indianapolis
Reduction Company, following the sale
to the city of Indianapolis of the SIO,OOO
garbage plant for $175,000.
It is suggested by a coal operator that
the Globe Mining Company did not find
It profitable to operate after public In
dignation made it undesirable to use con
vict labor In Its operations.
However, the Patoka Coal Company Is
said to maintain an office at the same
place that the Globe Mining Company is
recorded as maintaining Its office, and
the Governor says: “Myself and my fam
ily are financially Interested in the suc
cess of these two mines,” ope ated by the
Patoka company, whose president, J. T.
Moorman, was an officer of the Globe
Mining Company, and of the Indianapolis
I Reduction Company.

Plans were alto laid for a reception
had I said this than he threw some red
powder at me which stained my eyes
red as rubies.”
“But bow did your legs become so
bright a yellow?’’ asked Puss. And then
the strange toad began to cry, and the
tears that fell from his eyes were hard
as little garnets, and Puss picked theat
up and put them in hia pocket.
“When I hopped away,” went on the
strange Toad after wiping his eyes with
a blue pocket handkerchief, “I found
that my legs wero a bright yellow, for
the Giant’s servant had sprinkled the
ground with yellow powder." And then
this unhappy Toad gave a mournful
croak and hopped away.
“Fairy Land is a queer place,” said
Puss Junior to himself, as he jumped
o nhls pony, “ ’Tls lucky that I have
my magic feather and the little gold ring,
for I may have much use for them be
fore 1 have finished my travels."
And no sooner were the words out of
his mouth than he heard a loud noise
like thunder, and the air was full of
lightning, and then, all of a sudden, a
great bird snatched him off his pony
and flew away with him.
“Oh, dear me: Wasn’t that dreadful?
For it was the Thunder Bird, and his
feathers were as black as night and his
wings as large as the sails on a ship,
and his beak was like a shaft of light
ning, It was so sharp and bright, and
every time he flapped his wings there
wus a sound like thunder and every time
be opened his bill streaks of lightning
flashed over the sky. And the little
pony was so frightened that he turned
and ran back as fast as he could do the
little King of the Mountain and told
him what had happened.
And when that little King heard the
news he called together all his subjects
and they started to walk up the great
staircase that reached on the Inside of
the mountain to the very top, where the
Thunder Bird had his home. “Let us
make haste to rescue our little friend,"
cried the little King of the Mountain.

their belongings found fault with—they

wives. But the rieht thing for a fine,
high-spirited girl like you is to figure
things like this out for yourself—not to

"So you're going—for fear you’ll be

INDIANA DAILY TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7,192 w.
PARTISAN SPEAKS
AT BAR MEETING
League Discussion by Paid Re
publican Meets Objections.
Politics entered the Indianapolis Bar
Association, and for a short time threat
ened to disrupt the meeting last night,
when several members objected strenu
ously to the discussion of political ques
tions before the body.
The controversy arose when W. A.
Pickens, a member of the organization,
and former corporation counsel of Indi
anapolis, denounced the appearance be
fore the meeting of Edgar M. Atkins,
who admitted he was a paid representa
tive of the Republican national commit
tee, to discuss the League of Nations.
The discussion of the league, which
was to have been from a legal point
of view, received Itself, according to
members, into a denunciation of the
covenant, which was declared to be im
practical and dangerous to the best In
terests of the American public.
W. A. Ketchain, newly elected com
mander-in-chjef of the G. A. R., also
i denounced the presumption of the
I speaker in attacking the league.
PICKENB VOICES
IIIS DISAPPROVAL,
j “We come here to hear a legal dis-
I cusslon by a speaker presumed to be
a lawyer and a member of the Now
York Bar Association, and we hnve 11s--
(ened to a political speech and have
heard the League of Natl ms document
lambasted by a confessed paid represen
tative of the Republican national com
mittee,’’ said Mr. Pickens.
“I do not approve of such ethics,” he
6aid.
Mr. Pickens declared It to be only fair
to have a-speaker who was friendly to
President Wilson and Governor Cox, to
speak before the association, if the bars
i were to be lowered In favor of political
discussions.
Mr. Ketcham voiced the opinion that
t the address made by Mr. Atkins would
| have been more appropriate had it been
dellevercd before the Marion Club.
KETCHAM OPPOSES
INJECTION OF POLITICS.
“I do not favor injection of political
partisanship into such a meeting as this,
; for we should have only legal discus
sions,” said Mr. Ketcham.
Mr. Atkins was selected as the speaker
before the association by Charles W.
Moores, brother of Merrill Moores, Re
publican Congressman from the Seventh
district.
Mr. Moores said he had discussed the
question of a speaker with his brother
and that at the lest moment Mr. Atkins
had been aiked to discuss tho league
from a legal standpoint.
He added that ue was of the opinion
the dlscusilou had been from a legal
point of view.
Representative Moores then made a
statement in which he declared ali blame
for the meeting, if any there was, should
be placed on him.
The discussion waxed hotter and hot
i ter until W. C. Nappes, president of the
| association, suggested that ths organ!-
; zution give a rising vote of thanks for
| the speaker.
Nine men refused to Join In tho rising
! vote.
Mr. Atkins, in defense of himself, told
I the attorneys he had not appeared before
j their body in the role of a propogandist
although he admitted he was a paid rrp
teseutatlve of the Republican national
! committee.

tures” and that the Sawyer Grain Com
pany of Chicago held an account of
$39,000 against the company and Mc-
Cardle and Black of Indianapolis $6,000
more.
KNOWN AS
GAMBLING DEBTS.
Tho Indianapolis News referred to
these debts as having been incurred in
“gambling’’ and E. G. Hall, a lawyer of
Fowler, instructed the directors not to
liquidate them for the same reason.
It Is worthy of note that the Sawyer
company has not pressed Us claim
against the Raub company, although re
ports here are to the effect that the mat
ter will be taken up by the company
after election.
So far as known, however, no move
has ever been made by McCray’s corny
pany 'to bring up ‘the question of a set
tlement.
Raub is right across the Newton
County line in Benton County and the
ltaub Grain Company was a competitor
of the company controlled by McCray
in Kentland.
GOODRICH MEN
ARE INVOLVED.
Tho sequel to the Raub scandal hav
brought to light an interesting connec
tion on the part of the Goodrich admin
istration Involving John W. McCardle, a
Goodrich appointee on the public service
commission.
Mr. McCardle's son. C. A. McCardle,
is a member of the Indianapolis firm of
McCardle A Blacjt.
Representatives of McCardle & Black,
it is said by liaub residents, had obtained
i the promises of some of the directors of
the company that they could have grain
stored in the elevator in payment for
; the claim held against Kelley.
; A shortage of cars, however, prevented
| movement of the grain at this time.
I The senior McCardle was in Wasbing-
I ton and cars were sent to Raub through
ian order of the Interstate Commerce
j Commission, but when they arrived the
Raub Company refused to send the grain
i to Indianapolis dealers.
J No one here will accuse Mr. McCardle
| of having used his official position to ob
tain cars for his son’s use, but manv re
mark that It was a strange coincidence
that he was in Washington and that the
cars for this particular object started
to move at the game time.

BOONEVILLE, Ind., Oct. 7.—Dr. Carle

night.
Boonville Is the home of former Re

"Think how our universities and ktber
Institutions of learning have beeu

position In the world of education.
“Indiana is now forty-second In the

ton, Maurice Thompson, James Whitcomb
Riley, Booth Tarklngton, Meredith Nich
olson. Charles Major, Gene Stratton Por
ter, Lew Wallace, George Ade and all
the rest of the brilliant galaxy of au
thors which has shed such a luster of
literary fame in Indiana.
“Forty-second in the list of forty-eight
States!
“In contradistinction to the Ralston
administration, we find our college presi
dents going hat in hand to the State
house to beg for money to educate our
boys and girls.

GET IN EARLY CLUB
G- I- E Club
Listen to
INDIANAPOLIS people have been quick to appreciate the
future of this remarkable invention. Enthusiastic stock
subscribers, viewing our display at 40 Virginia avenue,
are impressed with the extreme simplicity of construction and
the manifest PERFORMANCE of the machine which is to
revolutionize the ice-making industry.
Built upon scientifically sound principles, the Arctic Ice Ma
chine has no moving parts. Consequently, the upkeep is not
enlarged by the necessity of providing new pieces. It is con
servatively estimated that 10 cents would cover the opera
tion cost of making refrigeration equal to 350 pounds of ice!
A cold that covers the working parts of the machine with
heavy frost is produced even in the warmest atmosphere.
No electrical appliances are used or needed. The machine
works as well on a farm as in a city.
The market for tills wonder-machine extends among Farmers,
Butchers, Shopkeepers, Housekeepers, Dairymen—any class of people
with whom ice Is a uecessily.
Manufacture will begin right here in Indianapolis the moment suf
ficient capital Is pledged to insure the purchase of raw material,
Profits will be divided among stockholders at the earliest time
practical.
George F. Standke, a business man of unquestioned standing in

Miss Julia Landers Recalls
History of Watson Aid.
Special to The Times.
RENSSELAER, Ind., Oct. 7.—ln •
speech to the women voters here last
night Miss Julia Landers “read the
record” of Senator Moses, Republican of
New Hampshire, and showed that It W3s
he who prevented the Governor of New
Hampshire from calling a special ses
sion of the Legislature to ratify woman
suffrage, making that State the thirty
sixth and giving suffrage a majority on
the constitutional amendment.
“I am amused at the appeal of Sen
ator Moses in Indiana to get the vote of
the women for Senator \Vat3on,” Miss
Landers said.
“I wonder If the women who are con
versant with the history of the suffrage
movement will give much attention to
the plea of Senator Moses, that they
give their votes to Senator Watson at his
request.
“Along with Lodge and Borah and
Branrtegee and Wadsworth, Senator Moses
is well known as a member of the group
that tried hard to prevent women from
getting the vote.
“He says that he expects that Sen
ator Watson will be made chairman of
the finance committee In the United
States Senate, because he will be of great
service in influencing legislation—get
ihls—influencing legislation for the up
building of American industry.
“We do not doubt his ability to In
fluence legislation, and we have not for
gotten the Mulhall affair, and I am
wondering whether the women will re
gard that as much of a recommendation
for his re-election.”
A DEFT.
“People are laughing behind your back
at you.”
“They are wise. That is the only safe
way for them to do it." —Chicago Daily
