And now comes the local commercial club with a resolution condemning the Aldrich currency measure, showing that the business men of Richmond are of tho same mind with business men the country over, they fio not want makeshift currency measures. That has been our chief complaint against the Aldrich measure. It is entirely a make shift and admitted to he such by the republican leaders of both senate and house, who however, seek to justify their advocacy of the measure by de claring that the people are demanding action of some kind relative to the currency question and that the Aldrich bill should be passed in order that the republican party tan go before the country at the next election with a currency measure to its credit. We do not agree with this way of looking at the question, believing that our currency system is too intricate and far too important to be settled off hand for campaign purposes. The senate has already passed the Aldrich bill and it is now up to the house. In this case the business men of the country have to rely upon the good sense of the members of the low er house to lose sight of the party cry and act in the best Interests of the whole country by refusing to pass the Aldrich bill in any form. Speaker Cannon ia credited with being very much in favor of the Aldrich measure, and it is stated he will use all his pow er to secure its passage through the h,ouse. It is to be hoped, however, that party lines will not he drawn, so that enough republican members can be secured to defeat the bill. If this can not be done we hope the desired result will be attained by insurgents from the republican side or the house. No republican member need fear re belling against a caucus that decides in favor of the bill, as the. majority of his constituents will be right behind him in his efforts to aid in defeating this pernicious measure. INMATES RECEIVED Indiana Women's Prison Is in Operation at the Pres ent Time. IS MANAGED BY WOMEN. The fact that- tho Indiana Women's prison is now receiving inmates is not known generally to the residents of the state, asserts Amos Butler, sec retary of the state board of charities. The. new penal institution was thrown open, in February and now has seven teen inmates. These are from the rarious counties of the state and are cf the class that heretofore have beea sentenced to county jails. Their in carceration in an institution managed eolely by women and in which they are employed at. some helpful kind of work is proving a great forward step. Mr. Butler says: "The institution occupies the quar ters vacated last summer by the Indi ana Girls' school. The expense of re modeling the wing and putting in a new light and power plant for the en tiro institution amounted to about t4o.on. There are accommodations fc one hundred women in the new de partment and it is well fitted to give them employment and instruction of a kind which will be helpful to them after they leave. An Asset. The financial prospects of Washing ton Lafayett Johnson were decidedly clouded, but he still preserved, a san guine spirit, which his friends did not always appreciate. 'Td like to borrow jes' a little money ob you," said Mr. Johnson confidential ly to a friend. "I I wouldn't ax you fo' It. but I ain' got a single cent left in de worLV' "What eecu'lty can you gib me?" asked his friend without any enthusi asm. "Why. I gib you my note ob hand!" and Mr. Johnson looked pained and amazed at such a question. "I reckon you don' know what a good, clear hand writing I got in de ebening school." Youth's Companion.

QUESTION IS FAR REACHING IT MAY BE MADE A NATIONAL ONE AND PRACTICALLY ALL DE PENDS ON THE ACTION OF CON GRESS THIS SESSION. Washington, April S. The temper ance question will nor. down in con gress. A wcrk ago the liquor interests were confident they had won their fight to prevent legislation of any sort at this session inimical to their business. Today they s-e indications which lend them to fear the temper ance forces will get about, all they ask for before the session ends. It, is the "word from home" that, is bringing about the change. P.oth senators and representatives are receiving letters from constituents saving that, unless they take their stand with the tem perance forces they will be punished in the coining campaign. Members of the house of represen tatives who are candidates for re-election are particularly solicitous about the outlook. Without being told by their constituents they know some thing of the temperance wave that is sweeping over the country and they do not want to be caught on the wrong side. Senators who are up 'or re-election have received warnings that members of state legislatures are to be chosen this year with special ref erence to the liquor traffic and that if they expect re-election they must take care not to stand with the unpopular side in this battle. A National Question. "The indications are that more pub lic men will go up or down on the tem- ranee question next fall than on any other one question that will enter into tlx; campaign. It will not he surpris ing if tho question becomes national in its aspect during the coming cam paign. Whether it shall pass from a state to a national issue depends on the action of congress at, this session. The temperance forces, led by the ami saloon league, are ready to make it a national issue if that shall become ne cessary. The situation is this: The move ment for stricter temperance laws is making headway everywhere. In some states it is taking the form of prohibition; in others it is for local option, high license or eliminating by remonstrance. The "dry" territory is being widened in scope month by month. The larger the "dry" area he comes the more plainly stands out the fact that the states can not meet with a full measure of success so long as the federal government nullifies the work of the states. Under existing federal law no state can create abso lutely "dry" territory, because liquor may be shipped into this territory from another state with impunity. It is also impossible to make a state or any part of a state "dry" as long as the federal government will issue a permit to a person to sell intoxicants in the territory which local govern ment says shall be "dry." Different This Year. So it is that the temperance forces are asking that these two conditions be remedied. They do not expect to get both evils cured at this session of congress. I hey do insist that legis lation shall be enacted at this session which will give a state some measure of control over interstate shipments of liquor. WAS DIRTY POLITICS Blodgett Says That Decatur County Primary Election Was Rotten. VOTES WERE BOUGHT. Disgruntled factions have arisen in the republican ranks of Decatur coun ty and the democrats stand a good chance to elect their nominee, if they select a man of good record in regard to the liquor question, according 10 Blodgett, of the Indianapolis News. Blodgett claims the republican t!i mary of March has been held !. was the dirtiest that i in Decatur county hv S any political party in many years, and I that it was made m by the brewery in-! fluences. Charges of corruption are ad vanced and the price of votes is fixed at per. Of the twenty-two saloons in Greensburg. twelve are owned by breweries and all were active in their efforts to elect Jethro Meek, a man : who had been non-committal on the ; liquor question, and is regarded by j the liquor interests as being "safe." j Blodgett asserts the nomination of; Meek made certain the fact the brew-! cries and saloons are just as active in politics as ever no matter how much they deny the fact.

Thouqht District unairman : Would Be Proper Man To Succeed Brick. WASHINGTON IS IN GRIEF. CONGRESSMEN WERE GREATLY AFFECTED BY THE NEWS OF THE DEMISE OF ONE OF IN DIANA'S LEADING STATESMAN. Indianapolis, April s. The death of Congressman Brick cpme as a shock to repnhlicans over the entire state. It becomes the .unvernor's dut' im mediately to call a special election to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Brick, which will extend from the date f l he special election to Match 4. The vacancy on the ticket to he voted for He Novo in her, attorneys s; v, must be !il!e,l by tiie district committee, which is made up of the county chair men of the several counties in the dis triet. Ii is probable that the commit tee will meet soon and, if it atrrecs up on a man to be placed upon the ticket to be voted for next November, the convention calk d to mahe a nomina tion for the special election will, as a matter of course, nominate the por- son so selected as a candidate for ( !- ut it at l.uken's drus store.

Already there is a sentiment in favor of John I.. Moorman of Knox, the Thirteenth district chairman. It is suggested that unless Mr. Moorman is agreed upon there will likely be a many-sided contest for the place, with probably a candidate or two from ev ery couniy in the district. It is pidnted out that Mr. Moorman, who was elected district chairman as a harmony candidate six years ago, if made the candidate for congress, would harmonize and unite all the re publican interests in the district. Mr. Moorman is a close personal and poli tical friend of all the seven county chairmen in the district. The name of C. V. Miller, ex-attorney general, also is mentioned, and it is said the friends of Congressman Watson, republican nominee for gov ernor of Indiana, would he glad to see Mr. Miller elected to congress. CAPITAL IN SORROW. Flag Lowered to Half Mast Out of Re spect For Brick. Washington, April S. The death to day of Representative Brick called foith far more than the ordinary ex pressions of sorrow at the capital. The flag floated over tho house of repre sentatives at half mast. His desk was hid from view beneath a profusion of crepe and a splendid floral offering including lilies of the valley, white and red carnations and ferns. Both the house and senate adjourned out of respect to his memory, after the body in which he had served with distinc tion had appointed a committee of six teen members to attend his funeral. Want Funeral Postponed. It was planned that the congres sional party shall leave Washington at 5:45 o'clock Thursday evening on the regular train of the Pennsylvania rail road.
