NEW OFFERS REASON FOR CONFIDENCE Improved Position of Farmers Basis of All Pros % perity. An improv'd position of farmer?, the basis of prosperity for all classes, making for a gradual betterment of economic conditions, was offered by Senator Harry S. New as a reason for confidence in the National Administration, in his speech to members and guests of the Kiwanis Club in the Riley room of the Claypool Hotel today. No denial was made of the fact that the country has suffered a period of se vere depression, perhaps unequalled in its history, by Senator New. “So far as the country was concerned, it was up to the Government to point the way out, through administrative recommendations and legislative acts,” Senator New said. "One fact was ap parent that the country was staggering under a debt of about twenty-four billions of dollars. The money ha 9 been spent, the debt created, not by the pres ent Congress, but by preceding ones. It profits nothing now to say that perhaps part of It was injudiciously created, not by this Congress, but by the preceding ones, and I certainly do not tax any one with that folly.” Unpopularity of the revenue bill was admitted by Senator New. He said, “No revenue bill was ever popular and none ever will be. But after all has been said, it is none the le6s true that it has reduced the public burden, by over eight hundred million dollars n year. A policy of retrenchment was agreed upon and savings introduced which amount to four million dollars a day.” The task confronting the Congress in framing tariff legislation was character ized by Senator New as being a great one. The tariff will be passed, he said, in a short time and It will “be a Repub lican tariff." Answers to criticisms of Congress formed a prominent part of Senator New’s address, ne said: “There has been complaint that Congress has not yet passed the tariff bill. I will admit it has been a slow process, bat it had better be slow, and reasonably right, than to be made in haste and utterly wrong.” CHARGE GAS COMPANY IS EXTRAVAGANT (Continued From Page One.) Majestic building, on which the company has a lease to run ten years from 1023. will cost from $63,000 to SIOO,OOO. Much of the hearing was devoted to questions of whether this expense was justifiable in view of the emergency alleged to exist in the company’s affairs. The space was absolutely necessary in the opinion of Forrest, who said the lu dianapolis Gas Company was using the same facilities ten years ago when ac commodations for handling 33.000 meters were made Since that time the number has doubled. “Have you ever heard a patron kick on anything exeept the amount of gas bill?” Gronlnger inquired “Many times.” replied Forrest. Commissioner Van Auken took a hand In the proceedings at that point, saying that improvements set-med lneonslsfant in view of the emergency in the com pany’s financial condition. GROMNGF.R waxes VERY PERTINENT. “When did the board decide on these improvementsGronlnger asked. “Some time in 1920. The arrangements were subject to the extension of the Forrt said. “When did you actually decide to go ahead with the plans?” “Eariy last fall." ‘‘And you knew there was an emer gency in the gas company's affairs Im pending?” “Yes. We were compelled to lay SIOO.- 000 worth of mains, too. and we knew the financial condition." Forrest replied. "Yon had to do It if you were going to continue in business,” Van Auken said. The original Idea of the expense to be involved was said to have been $25,000. “You knew that the 90-cent rate would stint the company when the improve ments were decided upon, did you not ?” Gronlnger asked. "It seems inconceivable to me that you should go ahead. The quarters served yon in 1920 when the company did its biggest business,” Van Auken said. "We were made desperate by censure,” Forrest replied. SALEH AGENCY SELLS COKE. The Gas Company employes a sales agency to dispose of its coke, testimony of Forrest showed. No price is set in the contract with the sales company, ac cording to Forrest. "What effort has ben made to sell coke in the last year?" Gronlnger asked. "Did you employ a demonstrator? Was it not a fart that you dismissed a man who demonstrated?” "We have the personal selling effort of a selling agency. We have circularized our customers.” Forrest was asked why the company had not tried to get other dealers to sell the coke, and he told the commission that other dealers were unable to sell It. It was suggested that the coke could have been sold at the yards If a price of seven dollars a ton, which Gronlnger said was less than Pocahontas coa! was selling for last year, had been put on It. Forrest declared that it was his conviction that 10.000 tons could not have been sold. Stress was laid by the city's counsel on what was Inferred to be Injudicious pur chases of coal. In 1320 Just at the peak of prices, evidence was Introduced to that the company had purchased much coal and dur r ng the fluctuation had pur chased most coal when prices were up. When sales decreased the company con tinued to buy, Gronlnger charged. This was not the case, according to Forrest, who aid the company continued to re ceive coal on contracts, but was not buy ing excessively. Testimony of witnesses yesterday cen tered on the supply of coke held by the company. Mr. Forrest spent several hours on the stand and Ir-ought out facts to show liquidation through disposal of the coke supply is not only bad business but Is not possible under less than two years' time. Mr. Gronlnger, In his opening state ment, had previously declared that the gas company should have sold its coke, disposed of other assets and by taking a loss such as many other businesses had done, made no demand for an increased rate based on an emergency. "There have been constant efforts made to dispose of our surplus coke stock.” Mr. Forrest said. "It has always been the practice to sell It on the competitive basis except at Indianapolis, where It is sold below the competitive scale. Here, our effort has been made to move the largest possible tonnage, and our prices have always been too low locally to per mit of outside competition." ST. EOVIS MAX GIVES TESTIMONY. Kelative to the disposal of coke, Parker H. Woods of St. Louis, representative of a coal and coke firm there, said that by extensive advertising campaign his com pany had been able to dispose of 50,000 tons of coke In a population of 800,000. Mr. Forrest was asked by Glenn Van Decorates Bazaar ISR? if igggr; , ' JACK RHOADES. Jack Rhoades, well known local artist, is in charge of th edeeorations for the Murat Temple Oriental Bazaar, to be given Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening in the subterranean chambers beneath the Shriner s theater. “The Streets of Cairo will be out streeted and o'ut-Cairped.” declares Rhoades. “It certainly is going to be a surprise for the public. AI Wilson, who is in general charge of the bazaar, de clared there “will be fun fast and furious all the time.” The bazaar is open to the general pub lic from 2 o'clock until midnight. The Shrine minstrels, also open to the pub lic. are staged at 8:15 o'clock atiif the minstrel ticket also admits to the bazaar. Auken. who is dvrr the hear ing, if the margin demanded by retail dealers is not $3 a ton above the whole sale price. Mr. Forrest replied the margin was about $2 per ton as there is a charge for switching coke to th? dealers’ team track and also expense entailed In un loading it into wagons for delivery. He said. Judging from advertisements, he had seer, in the newspapers, coke Is sell Irg at a retail price of $9.25 to $9 50 per ton. John W. McCardle. chairman of the commission, who is partlciptaflng in th? hearing asked if it would not have been possible to dispose of the coke in In diana alone if it had been reduced to a price bel iw coal. A committee of deal ers had refused to entertain such a prop osition. Mr. Forrest said. Mr. McCardle asked If there were not some coal operators among members of the committee. Mr. Forrest said he be lieved there were no coal operators on the committee but that he could not say posi tively. "Well the coal operators naturally would not want you to do that." Mr. McCardle declared, “and they would not encourage you by making a offer." Mr. Forrest's testimony showed that the supply of coke held by the company April 1 amonnted to 115.022 tons. This Is given a book value of $lO a ton and the com pany has not disposed of this stock be cause of the decrease in value. TROUBLE FOR BOTH SIDES IN POLITICAL ROW (Continued From Page One.) asked him why he had not reported. lie answered that he did not intend to, he said. Walker, according to Triplett, Fald “if you arc not for lteveridge you had better check out.” Donaldson last night informed Triplett that he "was laid off" and gave no fur ther explanation, the former Janitor said. “There's nothing ot it,” said Donald son. “More than a week ago I told Triplett to wash the windows in the board of safety office. You can't see through them. He didn't do it. Monday I told him to do it again. Yesterday 1 aked him how about it and he said he couldn't get to it. so I fired him. There never was no such meeting as he said there was on Monday night. I have never told any of the Janitors either collectively or Individually that they have to be for anybody. I don't care who they're for. I don't care who Triplett's for. lie can be for Hayes and TUden so fur as I'm concerned. The only thing I’m interested in Is keeping this building clean. Triplett was nlwa'§ quarreling with the other Janitors and getting himself in bad In general. He isn't worth a chew of tobac co anyway.” Walker said he was not sure that he even knows “who Triplett Is,” but that he Is certain he did not talk to Triplett. “I know I didn't talk to him at head quarters and I make It a rule not to talk about such matters at the city hall,” said Walker. The charge of McCarty, that Superin tendent Newby, of the municipal garage, tried to hit him with a spade was met by Newby with the statement that Mc- Carty has been "a trouble maker” for some time. McCarty got into three wrecks through careless driving and they cost the city S39S in repairs, Newby said. Me- Carty attacked him Newby said when reprimanded for leaving the hood of a truck open, in the rain. Newby said Mc- Carty used “such language” that “I told him I'd use a spade on him if he didn't stop talking that way.” There was no spade in sight, Newby added. .JARVIS SAYS MeCARTY <IUT. Park superintendent Jarvis said that he called McCarty in to talk to him “in a friendly way" about the charges of Incompetence made McCarty became so abusive that young women in the park department office were offended, Mr. .Tarvls said. Finally McCarty, in a great huff, announced he would no work for the department any more, Jarvis adds. City councllmen have said they would investigate the New-McCarty affair. Com mittees have been appointed to In vestigate the police department’s arrest of ten jitney drivers and an alleged “beating up" of a citizen, by Patrolman Bensley, in a raid on a south side pool room and dry beer saloon, President E. L. Kingston of the board of public safety said today tlvat he had talked with Councilman Otto Ray, who fathered resolutions calling for the in vestigations. and that Ray has decided to do “what he ought to have done in the first place, bring the citizen in and have him file charges of misconduct against the officer.” Kingston said Ray promised to have the complaining citi zen at police headquarters to file the charges this afternoon. SHOTVERSES GIVE $5,000 BLOOMINGTON. Ind., April 19.—An nouncement Is made here of the gift of $".000 i)i ih? Indiana University Memorial fun, Hk Showers Brothers’ Company, manufacturers of Bloomington. 4 PRISONERS ESCAPE FROM GUARD AT POST Alleged Deserlers Strike Pri vate, Who Had Taken Them to Labor. A net of military and civil police has beeu spread around the northesat sec tion of the city and over all roads lead ing from Ft. Benjamin HarefSon to In dianapolis In an effort to apprehend four fugitives,! who, while awatlng trial for escaped from their guard yes terday after having beat him into in sensibility. None of the four has been captured. It Is understood the escape came after one of the four attracted the guard's attention. As the guard turned, he was struck from behind and beaten Into unconsciousness. He did not recover until three hours after he was taken to the post bosptlal. The supposition at the fort is that the fugitives separated and went in two parties in opposite directions. At about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon someone fired one shot at Lieut. Carter M. Kolb, post adjutant, as he was passing through a wood. The shot narrowly missed Lieutenant Kolb, who said that it fol lowed an exclamation from someone in hiding. A search of the woods immedi ately afterward revealed foot prints In a clump of bushes, from which the shot came. No further trace of the shooter was found. The prisoners, Charles Henderson, Gay lord I’attoroff, Robert Allen and Robert Rugging, had been taken to work on a post road. The guard was Private Taboisky, Company H, 11th Infantry. Consideration is given the theory that an allay of the four robbed the post store house a few days ago, stealing eight regulation Army revolvers All automobiles coming Into the city from the direction of the fort were stopped by the soldiers. Military police were sent to th? city to cooperate with the ctvll authorities In the attempted ap prehension of the escaped prisoners. TWO SOLDIERS SURRENDER Two soldiers who left Ft. Benjamin Harrison April 3 without leave surren dered to the civil authorities last night and are held nt the city prison for the military authorities. Joseph Flanagan, 21, and Carl Lurn baugh, IS, both of whom are stationed at Ft. Harrison, said they left together to go to Terre Haute, where Flnnagau was to be married. Lumbaugh said that he “just went along.” GOVERNMENTS NEW OIL POLICY CAUSES FIGHT Conservation Issue in Senate Revives Old-Time Struggle. WASHINGTON. April 19—Another great "conservation" tight recalling tbo Ballinger Plnchot controversy of the Taft Administration looms as the result of the action of Secretary Fall and **<? retary Denby in opening up naval oil reserves in Wyoming and California to private Interests. Secretary Fall, admittedly, lias won his first real victory in his plan to open up vast national resources to private development through the signing of con tn. -ts with the Mammoth Oil Company of Itelawnre, a Sinclair concern, for tak ing oil from the Teapot Dome. Wyoming naval reserve and with the Pan American Petroleum Company for the California re serves. But in Congress and among the conser vationist forces, a storm is brewing. Th? Senate had passed a resolution of Senator Kendrick of Wyoming, asking complete Information regarding the contracts. When this is given the storm Is expected to break. It will also involve the policy of Sec retary Fail for the development of Alas ka anil the dispute now raging between Secretary Full and Secretary Wallace of the Department of Agriculture, over the proposed transfer of the forestry bureau from the Agriculture to the Interior De partment. The oil controversy. Involving a huge amount of the product which admittedly will play a most vital part In the na tional defense because of the large nmn her of oil burning battleships, centers around whether oil under the ground can be conserved, or whether a Govern ment pool can be tapped by private wells, Just outside the Government laud. Believing oil could thus he conserved, the Taft and Wilson Administrations closed most of the oil reserves. The Fall- Denby action indicates the present Ad ministration favors opening them, making contracts such as the ones just signed un der which the Government will get as high as 50 per cent of the oil taken out and then store it at strategic points for use by the fleet in an emergency. But the conservationist forces Insist the oil should be left in the ground, or taken out by the Government, so that it would get all of the oil. The present plan of the Navy Is to build huge tanks for storing the oil. Three of these for instance probably will be along the I’aeiflc coast. Another large one probably will be near Norfolk, Va. Naval officers also went to build a huge shell-proof oil reservoir In Hawaii.

That there are bad signs as well as; good ahead of business was the declara- ; tion of Evans Woollen, president of the ! Fletcher Savings and Trust Company, in an address today before the annual con- j vention of the Indiana Wholesale Grocers' Association of Indianapolis. The urgent need of consideration for European con-1 ditions was stressed by Mr. Woollen. “Doubtless there is a constructive pe riod ahead in which prudently con- I dilated business will prosper moderately,” | said Mr. Woollen. "But let us not be I fooled. There are good signs and just as surely there are bad signs. “The bad signs are not so much re marked. Being in large part across the sea, they are nbt not so obvious. “And why, it is Impatiently asked, should we bother about Europe? Why should a wholesale grocer in Indiana con- ; eern himself with that which Is so re mote. Is not the United States a self- j contained economic unit? Is not ninety- ; five per cent of our trade domestic?” “Why so much fuss about the remain- 1 lug five per cent? It is another instance of truthful statistics that lie. If it were 5 per cent of the trado in each commodity there would be no need to bother about Europe. But it is not that at all. When the statistician suys 95 per cent of our trade is domestic he of course means, but inipetient national ists do not always reflect that he means 95 per cent of the aggregative of the trado In all commodities, not 95 per cent of the trade in each commodity. "The wholesale grocer can not prosper freely without purchase by the cotton planter and the wheat farmer. They In 1 turn can not purchase normally without foreign markets. Cotton and wheat are here used only, of course, as illustrations. Accordingly he who would answer fun damentally about business here must first face the question ‘What of Europe.' And that question about Europe no one can answer. The situation is too com plex for definite understanding. Those of similar capacity and authority who try to answer show by their divergence o f views that they are at an impossible task. CANNOT ESTIMATE WAR DAMAGE. "We can not yet, oven after three nnd a - half years, measure the losh and the dislocation brought on the world by the war. About all that ca nbe said con fidently, and about even this authorities disagree, Is that outside of Russia, Austria and Turkey, some progress to ward the normal has been and Is being made. At least there is less of the de vastation of war and less of the threat of Bolshevism. The supply of food pro ducts is Increased. industrial recon struction Is well under way. Coal and shipping are well supplied. Tru tween countries Is free. Swiss exchange Is back to normal and British exchange approaches normal. 1 <*n the other hand, public debts are Increasing and currency Inflation so con tinue* as to make it not unlikely that In nt l?ast some countries no way out other ihan by a general repudiation will be found. “We should not be fooled Into the be lief that all our troubles are in the past, that Europe does not matter and that booming prosperity la at hand. There is a period ahead in which prudently con ducted business will prosper moderately, but It Is no time to forget the conse quences of the war nor the follies of the post war boom for which we have not jet paid ail the penalties.” Propose Opera Club for Music Lovers Indtannpuli rvude lover- wl'.l have an oportunlty at > o’clock Friday night to hear Andreas Dlpp and, former director <> ft ho Metropolitan arid Chicago Grand Operua Companies, explain his plan for organizing a grand opera circuit In the Middle West.

PINKHAM MEDICINE CO. LYNN, MASS. / SAYS M’CRAY WOULD FAVOR STATE FOREST Speaker at Forestry Confer ence Tells of Proposed Policy. Special to The Times. CHICAGO, April 19.—Governor McCray of Indiana favors a comprehensive for estry policy for his State in order to put acres unfit for agriculture and dairying to work growing timber which future generations will need, William A. Guth rie of Indianapolis, chairman of the In diana conservation commission, told dele gates from eight Central States at a for estry conference opening at the Union League Club today and which will close tomorrow night at a forestry dinner. He said Governor McCray looked favor ably to the State Investing $50,000 in forest lands in the hill country of In diana for the creation of State forests, providing this land can be purchased at a reasonable price.
