SPECULATION as to appointees to State Jobs has been adjourned for
the holidays.
NO POLICE LIEUTENANT appears yet to have heard of the Birk-Heid
race pool selling combination!
PERCHANCE the mayor forgot to tell "his’* police plan to any one
except his genial secretary from Peoria!
WHY is a city market in which the standholders admit inability to
compete with the prices charged by grocery stores?
STRANGE, isn't it, that throughout the years of their existence the fire
hazards presented by our best known gambling houses have never before
come to the attention of the city administration?
IF we had a grand jury it could learn some interesting things about
the loot of the workhouse, if it wasn't too busy exonerating men <vho
confess assaulting little girls.
Better Late Than Never
The post-election attempts of the Ft Wayne Journal-Gazette to express
its disapproval of the Goodrich administration are Indeed amusing to
those Democrats of Indiana who struggled persistently if ineffectually to
get Goodrichism as an issue before the public in the last election.
Reading those papers which ‘‘stood by their guns in defense of the
splendid Wilson administration,” now leads one to wonder where they
were published prior to Nov. 2.
For example, the Journal-Gazette says, "We charged for months that
these institutions (State institutions) were being slowly crippled and de
stroyed,” but we remember distinctly that the Journal-Gazette failed to
publish the original story of the depopulation of the penal farm by paroles
and contracts with mining companies when the story was offered to it
The Ft. Wayne paper now declares that it “charged for many months"
that the relation of Goodrichism toward the schools was beyond defense,
but we distinctly remember that it failed to publish facts submitted to it
when the Indiana school for the deaf was operated for months without
sufficient funds to provide teachers.
The Journal-Gazette also says of the Goodrich attitude toward the
convicts in the penal institutions, “we have many times dwelt upon this
scandal and have been roundly abused for doing so."
It fails, however, to explain why it refused to publish the facts con
cerning Goodrich’s parole record when these facts were offered to it
in 1918.
The truth of the matter is that the Journal-Gazette, in common with
the other Democratic newspapers of Indiana that are the playthings of
the gentlemen who aspire to boss the Democratic party in Indiana, refused
to follow a campaign program that might have led to success in Indiana?
They substituted for It a defensive strategy that failed so utterly in the
last election that they now dislike to be associated with its memory.
Goodrichism is dead in Indiana.
It expired shortly after Governor Goodrich announced the “withdrawal"
of his presidential aspirations.
That was long before the Journal-Gazette trailed with the charges of
which it now boasts.
And with its expiration, the Journal-Gazette had about as much to
do as Ed Hoffman had with the organization of Indiana Democrats while
he was spending the early part of the campaign at a Michigan summer
Market Gougers
It might be pertinent to inquire of those city market stand holders
who so blithely admit their Inability to compete with groceries why they
are in the city market at all. , ,
Os course there is no justification for their presence, if. Indeed there
is l any real justification for the city market as it is now conducted.
When grocers who pay high rents and even maintain delivery systems
can undersell market Btand holders whose rentals are nominal, whose
investment !s practically nil and whose possible customers are brought
to them without solicitation there Is something "rotten in Denmark.”
The consumers of Indianapolis realized that there Is something wrong
with the city market long ago. It still remains, however, for those poli
ticians who control it to find anything wrong with the system by which
they are enabled to pass out profitable stand sites in return either for
contributions to political funds or for political support.
Certainly the mere fact that the consumer for whose benefit the
market is operated pays In exorbitant prices for food does not worry the
„ Why should we have a market house if the standowners therein can
not compete with the grocers?
Why should we spend thousands of dollars In the improvement of a
market house if the standowners cannot compete with dealers who are
not subsidized with practically free rent?
The consumer desires to purchase at the lowest possible price con
sistent with a reasonable return to the dealers.
*• Since it has been demonstrated that the independent grocer can
supply his wants at lower cost than the market standholder, the market
standholder becomes only a parasite, and an expensive one at that.
The way to reduce the cost of living Is to purchase from the dealer
who sells at the lowest price.
Must Indianapolis boycott its city market in order to stop the gouging
therein that has been practiced so long the gougers believe themselves
privileged ?
Question of Sentiment
Charles W. Jewett, whom we remember as the mayor of Indianapolis
who was elected on his campaign pledges of “good government and clean
politics,” remarks that the Times appears to be the only part of this com
munity that does not think law enforcement is being too vigorously car
ried on in Indianapolis.
We are not willing to concede to Mr. Jewett that law enforcement can
be carried on too vigorously in this community, but overlooking that point
we wish to suggest to him that W. T. Meyers, who was held up as he
was closing his grocery; Joe Levinson, who was bound, gagged and robbed
in his tailor shop, and Mrs. Ruth Noman, who discovered the theft of her
Liberty bonds, are among a host that has suffered at the hands of
marauders recently and will hardly concur with the theory that law en
forcement in Indianapolis is too vigorous.
Hence we must modestly decline the honor the mayor would thrust
upon us.
On the other hand, Denny Bush and Dan Smith and the Stegmeler
Bros., who have recently been compelled to appear in court on gaming
charges, doubtless feel that Interference with them by other agencies than
the police who have blind staggers in their vicinity is “too vigorous" en
forcement of the law.
The position of the mayor lends support to a theory he has become
subject to influences that will not assist in maintaining his standing as
a “clean young man of great ability." Through no other source can ,we
imagine he could obtain the impression that the citizens or this city think
the lid is on “too tight.”
There are, in Indianapolis, approximately 286,000 white citizens who
are not tiring to prolong their stay at the public trough. Not all of them
have as yet been visited by burglars or held up in the streets. Not all of
them desire to make a living by conducting gambling pools or the sale of
intoxicating liquors.
Among these dtizens there is an ardent desire for the safety of them
selves and their property.
If Mayor Jewett spent a little more time among them and paid a little
more attention to their wishes he would not form the Impression that all
Indianapolis wishes a liberal administration of moral laws.
A New Serial of Young Married Life
CHAPTER CIII (Continued)
“No, Amanda —Just tell Mr. Blake that
I am busy.”
Virginia turned again to me: “You
were telling me about the party Betty
and Terry gave at the Blue Dragon Inn.
Do go on, Anne."
“Why, yes, we were motoring with them
—and Terry stopped to phone and—and
my brother Neal came flying out to ask
us to join him,” I said awkwardly, a lit
tle timid about too many details.
Virginia wrinkled her fine brows in
pretty puzzlement.
“Was Pat with your brother? Where
did they meet?”
“Through Evvy," I replied, still more
uneasily. The conversation was threaten
ing getting away from me, and I didn’t
quite see where it was going to land us
“Through Ewy? AAne, you're so odd
ly non-committal all 0 f a suduen. What
is the mystery of how you met my hus
band? Was he—with another woman?"
As Virginia spoke her hands began
twisting in her lap again, and her nos
trils quivered a bit, like those of a sen
sitive racehorse.
He wasn't really with any one special,
but in a party with Neal and Evvy and
Miss Sturges," I parried. “Then we all
Joined forces, and the very first thing
he did was to ask Jim: 'How’s Jeanle?’”
Virginia Ignored that.
By David Corv,
One day ss Puss wag traveling through
the Country of the Gods he saw a maiden
sorting out a great quantity of grain.
And it was no easy task, for there was
wheat, barley, millet and beans which
the Goddess Venus had stored away for
her pigeons. And this goddess had com
manded the maiden to separate the grains
and had then departed, leaving the maid
en to fulfill her commands.
“Ah, me,” she sighed, as she set to
work, and so busy was she that she did
not see little Puss Junior approach, but
kept diligently at her task.
Now, Puss felt very sorry for her, and
he looked about him for menus to help
her. and Just then a little ant appeared,
so Puss asked her to assist. So this little
aut went into her anthill and summoned
all her little friends, and by aud by.
after awhile, they had separated each
grain and piled the different kinds into
heaps, and then the ants vanished from
“How can I ever repay yon for help
ing me?” said the maiden to Puss, but
before he could reply the Goddess Venus
arrived and, seeing the work all neatly
done, exclaimed:
“This Is no work of yours, wicked one.”
and commanded the poor girl to perform
another task. Neither did the angry god
dess deign to notice Puss, but swept
eway, leaving the unhappy maiden uo
choice but to obey.
Now there was a grove nearby where
there were sheep feeding without a shep
herd, with gold, shining fleece upon their
backs, and the task was to shear a sample
of wool from each.
But when the maiden tried to cut off
the fleece the sheep ran away, and she
was in despair. So little Puss Junior
leaned over the river and naked the King
of the Waters to help her And in a lit
tle while along the rtver bank
whispered, “wait until the noontime sun
drives the sheep to the shade, and then
you will find the golden fleece sticking
to the thorns and brambles.'' And pret
ty soon the reeds sang a song:
The woolly sheep with fleece of gold
At noontide seek their rest

“Miss Sturges?” she said. “Not Car
lotta Sturges?”
“Yes,” I agreed, wondering why my
own heart was pounding so frantically.
Virginia stared at me—through me—
she seemed to be gathering her forces. No
longer were her white hands twisting in
her lap. They clenched at her side for
a second, and then they fell relaxed,
palms up—looking helpless, unhappy. I
felt as If I must say something, so I went
floundering on:
“Miss Sturges is in my unit at the
canteen —a big, red-headed girl, a little
crude, but completely kind-hearted. She
saved me from an ugly scrape my first
day on duty at the canteen.”
“Kind-hearted—oh, yes! Isn’t it queer,
Anne, the havoc kind-hearted people
create? I’ve a phone message to get off
at once; will you excuse me while I at
tend to It, and order your tea? ’
With her old queenly dignity and aloof
ness, Virginia rose and left me to face
my own questions.
When she spoke so pointedly of the
havoc kind-hearted people create, did she
mean that I had—done more harm than
good? Or did she refer to Carlotta
Sturges—did she even know the girl:
And, above all—straws showing the waj
of the wind—had she gone to telephom
