“I don’t know,”‘answered Henry-
Henry then walked away, smiled as he
waited on a customer at the bar, and
remarked: “They can do anything with
me but hang me, but I guess they want
me to make little ones out of big ones.”
Then he laughed at his own Joke.
The smile changed, however, when the
request came from Lieutenant Cox that
he open the bis safe.

LABOR CANDIDATE
EXPLAINS ACTION
Withdraws From Senate Race
to Defeat Watson.
An explanation of the controversy over
the resignation of,-Francis Dillon as
State chairmen of the Farmer-Labor
party Is contained in a statement issued
today by Dillon.
Mr. Dillon declares In his statement
that he Intended to resign as the party's
candidate for United States Senator in
favor of Thomas Taggart but the State
committee of Uis party was misinformed
as to his attitude in wishing to resign
and opposed it.
He said he then resigned as State
chairman and that he Is devoting his
energies to “electing Jim Watson to stay
at home." j
His statement follows:
My attention has been called to state
ments in the public press, issued by In
dividuals who have no authority to speak
for me whatever, concerning my action
in resigning as State chairman of the
Farmer-Labor party on Sunday, Oct. 24.
These statements would go unanswered
by tie were it not that in each there
appears the Insinuation that I have be
trayed my former associates. Each state
ment thus far issued concerning niy re
eeut action is so arranged as to suit and
conform to the f ilitieal ambitions of the
Individual Issuing It.
Nobody has been authorized to speak
for me. and all statements issued by any
body other than myself arc Issued for
the very apparent purpose of suiting
same professional politician's particular
need. No organization, either political or
otherwise, hns a mortgage upon what
few htains 1 may have, and I intend to
stand four square for what 1 conceive
to be right in the future lust as I have
in the past, regardless of the foul In
sinuations now beiu-' hurled at me by
me® whose entire 1110 has been con
sumed in the profession of slander.
When I was nominated bv the Farmer-
Labor party as its candidate for the
United States Senate, I filtolv believed
thnt the entire labor movement of onr
State would declare in no unmistakable
terms for our program. With tlMs con
viction I entered the campaign, and, have
worked with alt the power I possessed,
to proenre not only m.v election hut what
Is of even more Importance, the establish
ment of a thorough organisation. Now
there are districts in our State where the
Farmer-Labor ticket will be elected, and
especial!v is this true in the Fifth Coa
cressianal district. I firmly believe Will
iam Hitch will be elected to QongTt**
and thet with his election will likewise
come the election of the county ticket in
Vigo and Vermillion counties. In the
Tenth Congressional district there is a
fair chance to elect James McGill to Con
gress and. there is absolutely no doubt,
but that the entire Fanner-Labor ticket
will be elected In Lake County. Every
body at all familiar with the situation
knows that these two districts are our
two best bets.
Now the question of the United States
Senator proposition is altogether differ
ent. Nobody believes that I can be
elected who *is fair with himself. To
know and acknowledge th.s should ra-
I’.ect upon no man’s character, but rather
it should be regarded as evidence of
some intelligence. Representatives of the
organized labor movement came to me
ami asked if it would not be possible
to enlist my help in defeating James E.
Watson for re-election to tile Senate. I
informed them that if they would make
their proposal in concrete form that I
should then be only too glad to sum
mon our State committee together and
lay the entire matter before it. Before
it was possible to get our committee to
the city for a meeting they were advised
by individuals whose knowledge of what
was transpiring amounted to nothing but
that Dillon had sold out, that something
was wrong, etc., with the result that
when the members of the committee did
get here In most eases they had already
made up their mind.
The proposition which I bad to offer
was laid before them and promptly re
jected when I as promptly resigned as
their chairman. Men who know me know
that I asn nor a Democrat, they lso
know that I am not a Republican, but
they do know that I am fdr the labor
movement. With me the labor movemsnt
comes first and they have decided to
exert every effort in seeing that James
E. Watson Is retired to private life and
I do not propose to permit myself, on
my own ideas and ambitions, to stand
in the way of their sincere efforts. As
a union man. as a representative of or
ganized ijbor movement, I want my voice
and effort united with the forces which
progress in this State. What action I
have taken was taken with the Ann
conviction that it was for best, so
let us altogether elect Jim Watson to
stay at home.

Green Gold Wedding
Rings for Seconds
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 30—Oreen
goid wedding rings for grass widows
may become fashionable If a suggestion
made by T. L. Combs of Omaha, at a
jewelers’ here, finds favor
with fair divorcees who remain matri
monially undismayed In spite of court
experiences.
"New style wedding rings are becom
ing more and more popular,” said Mr.
Combs. “The old-fashioned plain gold
band has many rivals. Flaln and em
bossed platinum, gold or platinum set
with gems, all are being worn by brides
today. One of the latest wedding rings
is of platinum or gold set with two dia
monds. to which are to be added anew
diamond os each successive wedding an
niversary occurs.
“A recent innovation is the black
ebony wedding ring for widows. It is
to be feared its funereal color with Its
suggestion of sorrow for the dear de
ceased who once reigned In the bride’s
heart may be a trifle perturbing to the
new husband. But concerning tastes,
there is no dispute, as the Latin poet
said, and I may add that you never eati
tell about widows. At any rate, the
black wedding ring Is having Ik certain
rogue.
‘The green-gold wedding ring for
grass widows is the next logical step.
I shouldn’t bo surprised to see It make
its .'tppcnrunce at any time. Divorcees
are becoming an important element in
our population and some such consid
eration is duel them. A woman with a
past is considered fascinating, and many
grass widows i\ght be glad to empha
size their fascihaßon by advertising their
past with a greerigold ring."

BEVERIDGE KARPS
ON RACIAL STRAIN
Says Old World Lines in U. S.
Too Strong for League.
He’s Same Beveridge
Albert J. Beveridge, who spoke in
Indianapolis last night- against the
League, of Nations and for the elec
tion of Warren G. Harding, is the
same- Albert J. Beveridge whose book,
"What, Is Back of the War,” pub
lished in 1015, was withdrawn from
public circulation following a report
ofthe American Library Association
committee that It was “pro-Gertnan.”
He is the same Albert J. Beveridge
who wrote four articles in fulsome
praise of Kaiser Wilhelm for Col
lier's Weekly, just previous to tfie
beginning of the war between the
United States and Germany.
Americans can not become a po.iticat
member cf any political group of foreign
countries and can not enter any longue
of Nations because the American people
are a nation which (drill feels strongly
Its Italian, Polish, German, English or
Irish descent. Albert J. Beveridge de
clared in a speech at Tomlinson Hall last
night.
“We are deeply convinced that foreign
political cntagleincnts mean the ruin of
America,” he said. . v
“To keep our country free from the po
litical embroilments, of other countries
does net mean our ‘isolation’ from the
common affairs of mankind—it means
on y that w* annll continue to keep our
selves unpolluted by the historic ambi
tions, hatreds, plots and intrigues of
other notions.”
He declared that this country is not
and never lias been “Isolated” commer
cially.
Mr. Beveridge continued to dwell
strongly on the fact that America is con
posed of racial group, and expressed ths
fear that if this country enters the
League of Natlor-a these groups will vote
mor to favor the p&rent countries than
In the interest of the United States.
He declared that the withdrawal
amendment to tho league covenant means
absolutely nothing and that once this
country Is in the league it can never get
oat. >

MOVES AGAINST
PROPOSED PARKS
Park Commissioners to Stand
by 500-Foot Clause. *
Steps to prevent the establishment of
two amusement parks within 500 feet of
city property used for park purposes were
takon by the board of park commissioners
today in letters written by James 11.
Lowry, superintendent of parks.
One letter wns addressed to the River
side Amusement Company, informing
that concern that the board will stand
on its right to* prohibit the establish
ment of an amusement park within the
prescribed limit and prohibit the com
pany from erectng any part of Its pro.
posed amusement place within 500 feet of
Parkway bou.evard or Riverside Park.
The company proposes to construct its
park between Twenty-Eighth and Twen
ty-Ninth streets on Schur-nann avenue.
A few days ago the board received in
formation that a private company has
been planning to construct another
amusement park on property of the Indi
anapolis Water Company Jdst south of
the South Grove golf course.
Mr. Lowry wrote the Indianapolis Wa
ter Company tuat the board will exer
cise its 500-foot limit prohibition power
In this case.
JUST A LITTLE
MYSTERY LEFT
Women Now Veil Only Tops
of Ears.
CHICAGO, Oft. 30.—Chicago men
today are able to see a bit of fern...
Ininit.v they haven’t gazed upon for a
long time—a woman’s ears.
They- are showing ’em here r.ow—
all but a little bit of the top, which
is still covered by hair,
Madame Louise, renowned bmtnti
fler, said today that women generally
were unveiling a bit of their cars.
“It would be too immodest and
shocking to show the whole ear," she
said. “The upper portion will remain
a mystery for awhile.”
On the lobe of the shell-pink ear
the girls are adding a little (lash of
rouge to make It pinker, Madame
Louise said.
“It adds charm and a subtle sug
gestion of vivacity,” the madams ex
plained.

“I have taken only two boxes of
Eatonic and feet like anew man. It
has done me more good than any
thing else,” writes C. O. Frappir.
Eatonic ie the modern remedy for
acid stomach, bloating, food repeat
ing and indigestion, ft quickly takes
up and oarries out the acidity and gas
and enables the stomach to digest
the food naturally. That means not
only relief from pain and discomfort
bat you get the full strength from the
food you eat. Big box only costs a
trifle with vour druggist’s guarantee.
