PERHAPS those who now object to road building in Marion County
would withdraw their objections if only the commissioners would insist
on “proper" maintenance bonds.
ALLAN RYAN should w'orry about the effort? of the bankers to take
oxer his business. It cannot be done without treading on some toes that
eren the New York bankers respect.
ATTEMPTS to lay the expose of Ora Davies’ shortage up to Jesse
Eschbach only serve to recall that the public got its first Information on
this subject from the Times before Mr. Eschbach said a word.
Hoover's Popularity
A modern illustration of the fact discovered long ago that a man
cannot hide his candle under a bushel is the recent invitation extended to
Herbert Hoover to take part in a conference with labor leaders.
Labor, which is none too prone to counsel with other than its own
leaders, yet recognized in Mr. Hoover ability and character which it
sought to enlist in its own objects.
The invitation was both a personal tribute to Hoover and an indica
tion of advanced thought on the part of those who were responsible for it.
Mr. Hoover has demonstrated the kind of ability and brains that is
needed in the government of the United States.
Both the old political parties failed to avail themselves of hi3 services
during the last -campaign. Whether this failure was due to inability to
control Mr. Hoover or to preordination on the part of leaders in the politi
cal affairs of the nation is a matter on which opinions differ.
But this much is certain —Mr. Hoover’s ability should be utilized by the
people of the United States.
And his general popularity is such that it will be utilized—if not by the
old parties, then, perhaps, by anew organization that is more responsive
to public desire and estimation of character.
The regularity with which the “reformed" convicts paroled by the
State institutions and the Governor of Indiana reappear in the courts
for continued depredations would be amusing if it were not so serious
for property owners.
Attention has been called to it so often that illustrations need not be
printed—they are, indeed, present in the minds of nearly every person.
It ought to be apparent by this time to those good old souls who love
to foregather in public convention and congratulate each other on the
“great progress" made in dealing with the criminals of this State that
in their tender mercy they have made a johe of the law and a menace
to the community.
The facts are that the criminally inclined laugh at the courts and
the penal institutions of Indiana. They know that in event they are
caught in crime they will stand little real punishment and will receive
much sympathy.
Our prison north is so conducted that a criminal who really desires
may leave at his pleasure; our prison south 13 so thoroughly bent on
“reform" that it seldom, if ever, regards the trial judges’ judgments as
worthy of respect; our penal farm is so thoroughly neglected that It
hasn't enough inmates to operate it.
In other words, those who are so unfortunate as to be deserving of
confinement are so fortunate in enlisting the sympathies of a lot of
doddering so-called criminologists that they are soon released to resume
preying on the community.
And another lot of criminally inclined persons whose disrespect for
property and personal rights of others makes them fit subjects for restraint
are encouraged in their crimes by the aversion of such judges as James
A. Collins toward imposing sentences of confinement that might interfere
with political support.
Indiana needs some he-men on its benches and in charge of its prisons.
The appalling lists of murders, robberies and thefts throughout the
State, taken in consideration with the number that are known to have
been committed by “reformed” paroled prisoners, show nothing so much
as the utter incompetence of the constituted authorities to deal with
ti ypocrisy!
An interesting sidelight on the sincerity of the Indianapolis News in
its efforts to appear as an influence for good government is afforded by its
recent attempt to arouse the populace against the Marion County com
missioners because they are no longer requiring contractors to furnish
bonds for the maintenance of highways for which they are contracting.
The memory of the oldest inhabitant hardly goes back to a time when
the county required a contractor to do repair work on a road under the
terms of the maintenance bonds. Fcr years the provision of these bonds
has been a little sideline with bending companies by which they made
a “cut’* into every road contract let and the taxpayers settled the bill. For
no contractor submitted a bid that did not include a charge for this roon
forgotten bond.
Until recently the smooth flow of the bonding companies’ revenues was
wholly undisturbed. Finally, the county commissioners interfered with it
and now tbe News arises in a burst of outraged civic zeal and rants
about it.
One of the peculiarities of this News campaign is that the State high
way commission originated the plan of abandoning these bonds.
Contracts for millions of dollars’ worth of highways were let by the
Goodrich administration without maintenance bonds and it is a fact that
as one contractor was finishing the last few yards of a highway a repair
crew of the State began work at the other end of the completed road. Not
a cheep was ever heard from the News concerning bonds, however.
On the contrary, nothing but the most fulsome pralee has ever ema
nated from the “great Hoosier dally” concerning the manner in which State
highway contracts were drawn and let.
It I? only the lack of maintenance bonds in county contracts that of
fends ii3 sense of righteousness!
One wonders whether tbe toes of the United States Fidelity and Guar
anty Company have been trod upon.
This is tbe company, one must remember, that urged all public offi
cials to buy bonds of it because Will Hays is a vice president.
It is also the company that gave bond for Delavan Smith on the occa
sion of his appearance in the Federal Court to throw light on the real own
ership of the Indianapolis News.
Is the Doctor Responsible?
A recent dispatch from Paris states that the courts over there are
wrestling with a legal proposition as to whether the doctor is responsible
if his patients die. That question is being fought, out In the court of the
old French town of Nimes and is greatly perturbing the whole medical
profession of the country.
Two patients died and the prosecution alleges that the doctor fur
nished a poor nurse and his treatment was absolutely wrong. The state
called a Paris doctor to show this but all the local doctors rallied to the
support of their colleague and even gave a banquet in his honor. The
doctors further proclaimed the necessity of forming a professional union
through which to protect their interests.
It will always be a question which Is the better form—to pay the
physician for keeping one well, as is done in China, and to cease paying
them when one gets sick, or to call one in every time we have an ache or
pain. Both are unsatisfactory enough. However, the fact remains that
in spite of the sacrifice of doctors in their best endeavors, people will die.
Os course there miht be occasions of neglect and malpractice, or it
might be that one's school of medicine will bitterly blame another school
of medicine and state that tlio latter is all wrong, but nevertheless, people
approach the great divide and pass over it.
The thing required is a little charity and sometimes even a state for
gets this and sometimes one’s school of medicine neglects this. So in
France where the prosecution is being carried on, a little charity, a little
placing of oneself in the other man’s shoes will do good. Likewise, among
the schools of doctors, a little consideration for one another and for the
various philosophies of medicine, exercised before an emergency arises,
does good.

One day as tittle Puss Junior proceed
ed on his Journey through the Country
of the Gods he came to a hill, and on
the top stood two trees —a linden and
an oak. And just back of them was an
humble cottage, whore an old mu and
woman lived. And ns Puss was weary
with his Jontyu-.v, he .knocked upon the
door, and the old man opened It and In
vited him in. .So Puss went inside,
where the old woman was busy at her
Now, Puss had stopped at many a
palace and castle that day. but uone had
asked him in. They had turned him away
with a surly answer, hut these two old
people received him kindly, and the old
woman at once set to work to got the
evening meal.
And when the old man went outside to
bring in the wood for the fire an old
goose, who waddled in through the back
door, said to Puss! “These old people
are very poor and needy, but they will
give you the best they have."
And while Puss pondered how to re
ward these two good people, the old man
made the fire and the old woman set the
table, and then she cooked the supper.

Now I had an idea that Phoebe had

myself almost glad that Evvy was there,
’’Come up with me, girls.' I Insisted
cordially. "I'll try to make up for your

“Virginia has n date.” announced
I'heebe almost sulkily “She doesn't

A shade of expression flickered scrons
Evvy’s face and was gone again before
I could make an effort to read It.
“Why don’t yon girls stay here?’’ T b

And when Puss suddenly thought of his
magic little gold ring which the Fairy
Queen had given him so long ago.
And after supper was over he w-alked
outside and spoke to (he ol’d goose.
“What do you think would best suit
these two good old people?” And the
goose replied: “They are good and pious.
Change their humble hut Into a temple
and let them spend the rest of their days
as the guardians of the holy place.”
So Puss turned Ids magic gold ring
around his toe three times and nt once
the little black man appeared and in
quired what he would do. “I would like
to have this humble hut changed Into a
temple.” replied Puss, and no sooner
were the words out M his mouth than
a beautiful temple took the place of the
humble hut. Great columns replaced the
old wooden corner posts, the mildewed
thatch grew yellow and turned into a
glided roof, the floors became marble and
the doors wondrously carved with figures
of gold.
And when the two old people learned
that they were always to have (he care
of that beautiful temple, they were so
pleased that they hardly knew how to

Long, long afterwards, when those old
people were too old to work, they

I know that both Capital and Labor
are good fellows, for I have met them
personally and was always received with
fairness and frankness when met as man
to man and not as paid agent of Capital
and wnlking delegate of Labor.
I soy to Labor: “What do you knotv
of the true condition of Big Business?"
Not one In several thousand can answer
only: “What delegates so and so tell us."
I say to Capital or Big Business:
“What -do you kuow of the true condi
tions of Labor?” The same percentage
of answers will be: “Only what paid
agents so and so report." It Is to the
Inlerest of both agent and delegate to
keep the mountain of distrust growiug
so as to keep their Jobs. Spuoe will not
allow me to go into detail of the differ
ent adjustments of working conditions,
wages, houses, markets, investments, pro
duction. interest on capital, housing of
workmen and a thousand other things,
but I say to Labor: ".Study your indi
vidual conditions, be Just and Capital
will meet you with a glad hand.”
1 say to Capital and Big Business:
“Study the needs of your laborers, their
likes and dislikes, shop and working con
ditions; kuow as many of your men as
possible, not as a producing element
alone, but by name and as neighbors; as
much of their home life as possible. Give
each one the feeling that they can come
to you personally or collectively and get
an ‘Honest to God’ square deal, and I
