billty of deciding an issue -which in

feel constrained to call your attention to
the draft of the discussion concerning
the League of Nations.
’ “It is plain that the principles involved
have been lost sight of in political spar

Editor the Times—Just a few words to
say about this here “League of Nations.”
Now, I ain’t no Maine Carpenter, and I
ain’t Just talkin’ to Booth Tarklngton.
I am an Indianapolis pninter and am
Mikin’ to the citizens of Indianapolis.
Now. folks -you take a fellow like Sen
ator Harding, when he says he’ll do a
thing, well. I take for granted he’ll do It.
Now, didn't the Senator say he was go
ing to turn hls back on this here vital
question, the League of Nations? Yes,
he did. But now he's kind of backed ofit
of that nov, since he has seen that there
was so durn many people for it t Now.
the reason there Is so durn manv peonle
for it, is this: They got to arguing this
question around all the public places,
and those against it. seeing they didn't
know anything about it. they went and
looked It up. So. of course, after they
knew .vhat it was all about, they just
naturally couldn't he any other way but
for it.
Now. here. Mr. Maine Carpenter. I
have Just a few words to say to you:
During the war, whllf you were over
here getting those big high wnges and
getting yonr 5-cent gliger cakes for S
cents I was over there getting sll.to
per month and paying $2.75 for a 5-cent
ginger cake. Now, listen nere. friend, it
you investigate thla here League of Na
tion* a litttle closer and want
to take .Uncle Sam’s money as freely
as yon did during the war then I know
yon’ll be for it.
Now, as I don’t know yonr address
and I want you to read this letter. I'll
give it to this paper that ain't afrakl of
the political machines in this city.
(Signed) Youry truly.
Editor The Times: Propres*lves, the
rank and file, who seek nothing for
themselves, and who fear no reprisals
of a political sort, are not for Harding
and Watson for #the very good reason
that Harding and Watson are reaction
ary and not in any sense progressive.
There is nothing personal in the hos
tility of rank and file progressives
against reactionaries. Their differences
are fundamental, and are based on prin
ciple. When It comes to voting against
Harding and Watson, the record Is the
thing. Harding and Watson make no
bones of their reactionary policy. The
progressive rank and file makes no
bone® of its utter refusal to accept
Handing and Watson.
Putting aside 1912, Watson's floor lead
ership of the wrecking crew, Harding’s
denunciation of Roosevelt, Watson's
treachery to Wood—there’s the record.
By their official acts progressives must
classify such men as Harding and Wat
son. It used to be “stiindpatism." then
It was "Cannonism,” and now it is "nor
malcy.” Harding and Watson are types
of that period when ten years’ fighting
were needed to pass a progressive law
They ask us to go back with them to
Hannalsm. No wonder the progressive
rank and file declines.
On the general trend of things Hard
ing and Watson are wrong, for they be-

Vote for Taggart and
Economy in Government
THOMAS TAGGART, serving in 1916 in the United States Sen
ate, voted and fought for economy, for business methods and
lower taxes.
Senator Taggart earned nation-wide praise when he coura
geously stood for the taxpayer and against waste and unjustifiable
“pork'’ raids on the treasury—the raids that tend to increase
While supporting constructive legislation, and while urging
Federal aid for good foads, Senator Taggart insisted that the tax
payers’ money be u invested” where it would bring returns, and
he denounced useless public building schemes and successfully op- *
posed *‘pork barrel” items in the rivers and harbors bill, point
ing out $20,000,000 of waste and helping block that extravagance.
Plain Business Sense
Thomas Taggart applied in the Senate the budget principle he had used
with remarkable sueeess in minor public offices and in private business. In
every fair test the taxpayers have voted approval of Thomas Taggart’s record
in office. lie was twice elected Auditor of Marion County, and three times
Mayor of Indianapolis, refusing a fourth nomination.
In 1916 Mr. Taggart’s economy fight in the Senate made him a formidable
• candidate. The change of two votes to a precinct that year would have al
tered the result that year.
Thomas Taggart is running on his record.
Praised By Press
Os that record the Indianapolis News said editorially Aug. 14, 1916 :
It gives the News great pleasure to commend in the most cordial way
the main features of the admirable speech delivered by Senator Thomas
Taggart in the Senate Saturday . . . “Economy in itself Is a great
revenue” —there Is a doctrine that those charged with the management of
the nation’s business would do well to lay to heart. Mr. Taggart’s warning
should be heeded. The Indiana Senator spoke well and he spoke the truth.

Q. Where was the first canal In the
United States built? G. H. F.
A. The first canal completed In the
United States was one at South Hauley,
Mass., which was built around a rapids
In the Connecticut River. It had two
levels connected by nn Incline, up and
down, which boats were moved in a tnnk
filled with water and propelled by cables
operated by water wheels.
Q. Can an officer enforce a command
If be is not in uniform. It. A. A.
A. The War Department says that a
commissioned officer Is Invested with
authority when he receives hls commis
son, not when he receives hls uniform.
The word of an officer In the United
States service Is law to all subordinates
until he has received a fcrmal discharge
from service.
Q. 'What kind of n dog Is a lurcher?
tv. A. M.
A. A lurcher is a cross between a grey
hound and shepherd dog. It is stouter,
lower and less elegant than the grey
hound, but is fleet of foot, keen sighted,
takes a scent much more readily, and
takes training particularly well.
Q. Have various woods the same heat
ing value? How does heat value of wood
compare with that of coal? E. C. H.
A. Practically all wood fibre has the
same fuel value per unit weight. In
comparison with coal the heating value
of wood is a little more than one-half as
great as that of coal.
Q. Are there shellfish In the Bolton
Sea? W. A. H.
A. A shipment of 5.010 shrimps and
2,500 crabs has recently been made for
the purpose of stocking this body of
water with these shellfish. The condi
tions existing in the Salton Sea seem
ideal for their propagation.
Q. Who were the Caps and Hats?
It. G.
A. These were names given to political
parties in Sweden early in the eighteenth
long to the low wage, low living standard
lockout era of the “Invisible govern
ment,” the hired lobbyist and legislation
by committee chairmen armed will
bludgeons with which to kill all progres
sive bills. On the League of Nations
Harding and Watson are wrong, for they
have gone on by-ways seeking to pander
to voters of alien minds. So It Is that
the Progressive rank and file refuses to
follow reaction or trickery into error.
Thanks be—there is a sane and safe
alternative. Cox and Taggart are pro
gressive-minded men of progressive rec
ords in office. Cox and Taggart are right
on the League of Nations.
That is why it is both sensible and
gratifying for the Progressive rank agd
file to Join the Independents in support
of such men as Cox and Taggart. Their
records are such ns to pledge future
service on progressive lines.
The voter has #nly to compare the rec
ords of Harding and Watson with the
reeords of Cox and Taggart to make
certain his decision. It Is Hnrdlng. Wat
son and r-a-tion, against Cox, Taggart
and progiegsivism.
It is the league with clarifying reser
vations. with Cox and Taggart, or It
is the league “scrapped” and a separate
peace with Germany, as promised by
Harding and Watson.
The frank statements of the opposed
candidates, and tbe vivid contrast pre
sented by their off'clal records, enable
ns all to get right. The present sweep to
Cox and Taggart In Indiana Is only a
manifestation of the fact that the rank
and file are not to be fooled hr the
self-seeking maneuvers of politicians,
apoloeists and shifty strategists.

Dr. McCulloch Answers Fred
Sims’ Inquiry.
Dr. Carleton B. McCulloch, Democratic
candidate for Governor, expressed the
opinion in a letter to Fred Rims, ••hair
man of tbo State Board of Tax Commis
sioners, that, under the circumstances,
he has been exceedingly mild in his
criticism of the tax board.
The letter was written in reply to an
inquiry from Mr. Rims ns to whether
Dr. McCulloch was correctly quoted In
a statement criticising the tax board.
Mr. Sims’ letter follows:
It was reported to me that you made
the following statement at Newcastle,
lnd., in a public meeting:
The autocratic assumption of power
by the B'-'te Tax Board—that ex
emplar of the McCray-Goodrich type
of centralized control—has outraged
the feelings of every self-respecting,
sane-thinking man and woman.
I would appreciate an early reply as
to the correctness of my information.
In reply Dr. McCulloch said:
I have your favor of the 20th Inst., with
its implied complaint. I am sorry you
have evidently construed this ns a per

Economy in itself is a great revenue.

Let us not seek merely to find things on which to place taxes.
The power to tax means the power to destroy.
We do not want to destroy the earning power of the people

Let us seek for those places where we may economize without
injury to the public service.
First see if revenues are sufficient, if not, then cut off every
useless appropriation.
I favor the budget plan.
I shall always be found, in the Senate, using my best efforts

Advice is Sound
Tn an editorial Aug. 16, 1016, the Indianapolis Star said:
Senator Taggart’s appeal for economy and business methods in the han
dling of the public funds was timely and to the point. It was unexpected
advice from anew member, but it was good advice and should have weight
because offered by a man who, as a successful business man, has so recently
taken his seat in the Senate. Senator Taggart has the viewpoint of the
practical disinterested citizen. He has the right idea when he says:
“Economy is itself a great revenue.” His advice no doubt sounded strange
to the old-style politicians, but it is common sense.
Professor Sags Narrow
Shoes Will Bring 'Em.

Instead of feet will be the heritage

hand down to future generations, if
the craze for tight shoes continues.
Herbert Martin, professor of philos

“Man is headed straight for the
hoof stage,” Prof. Martin said, "and
undersized shoes are the cause.
"The little toes of this generation
are so little liecauee the toe is in the
process of disappearing and will in
time be extinct.”
Explaining how the evolution from
feet to hoofs will come about, Mar

“The weight of the body alone Is
forcing the feet of today into the
narrow-pointed shoe casings.
“The resule is feet are losing their
shape: toes are compressed, corns
and callouses follow and the logical
result will be hoofs.”

You remember in the last story that
little Puss Junior was listening to the
music of Pan, the goat-footed shepherd
boy who played such lovely music on hls
flute that all the nymphs gathered about
him to dance. Well, nfter the music
stopped one of the nytnphs asked Puss
to come with her and she would show
him a huge tree. It was so tall that Its
trunk overtopped all the other trees and
Its leaves were as broad as sails.
And wnile Puss stood there admiring
It, a Giant came by with an ax in his
"All, this tree will make me. some fine
kindling wood,” he roared and his voice
was so loud that all the leaves trembled
and the water from the little stream
spattered over the meadow.
And when the little nymph heard him
she turned pale with fenr, for she was
the spirit of the tree, you see. but Puss
didn’t know that, and maybe you don’t,
so that’s the reason I’m telling it to you.
"Don’t cut down this tree," she
begged, “for I shall die If you do," But
the Giant only laughed and swuug bis
great ax.
"Stop," erleil Puss, and he drew hls
sword, but (he Giant only,. laughed
louder than before, and I guess he would
have cut down that tree and chopped It
up Into kindling wood In less than live
hundred short seconds and then carried
It home to Ills great big wife, If Puss
hadn't waved his magic flaming feather.
And then, quick as a wink, that Giant
dropped hls ax, for the wooden handle
was all In flames.
"Who are you?" roared the Giant, and
he blew on hls hands to mnke them cool,
and would you believe it, Ills breath was
so strong that It sent Puss Junior’s cap
right off hls head, and if Pan hadn’t
enugbt It quickly it would have floated
down the stream and away out to the
great blue ocean.
“I'm Puss In Boots, Junior," replied
our Httle traveler.
“Well, whoever you are," said the
Giant, "you have spoiled my ax handle
so that I cannot cut itiwn thla tree,” and
he walked away with a great scowl on
bis face.

Takes Front Rank
From the Indiana Doily Times editorial of May 27, 1916.’
With a show of Independent thinking, frank speech, timely and nec
essary constructive suggestions and sound reasoning, Senator Thomas
outlined a policy which today gives him standing as a leader.
Taggart entered the Senate from the business world where efficiency means
success and where inefficiency, waste, extravagance and reckless spending
moan inevitable, humiliating failure. He looks on the business of govern
ment as a business matt ter that ought to be handled with an eye to efficiency
and economy. He spoke on a business question as a business man speaks of
business. He declined to accept the “pork” theory of public money and gov
ernmental disbursements. He spoke as a good American as well as a good
business man.
Gains National Fame
So ran the comment from coast to coast in hundreds of newspapers of
all parties, the independent journals being especially vigorous in commending
the now “\N atchdog of the Treasury. ” Senator Taggart became famous over
night because he got results for the taxpayers. Many editors declared, with
the Dubuque (Iowa) Telegraph, that “the United States Senate apparently
needs a great many more men of Thomas Taggart’s type.”
Taxation is a big issue in Indiana. The public man who gets economy re
sults in government is hailed as a real friend by the taxpayers.
Want Taggart in Senate
That ?.s why there is a general movement in Indiana to put Senator Taggart
back on the job at Washington.
Senator Taggart’s record is the best guaranty as to his future non
partisan service. In the Senate lie will go in pointing out the need for a
budget. lie will insist that expenses be kept within income; that revenues be
ascertained, and appropriations cut to fit the revenues. He will combat un
justifiable “pork” raids.
Thomas Taggart is the taxpayers’ economy candidate and he means business.
