THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, TUESDAY, JULY 7, 1908. TAXPAYERS MOST SETTLE UP Arrears Must Be Paid or the Prosecutor Will Start Court Proceedings. MYRICK ISSUES A LETTER. DATE IS SET FOR PAYMENT AND IF DELINQUENTS DO NOT HEED WARNING THEY MAY FIND TAX PAYING EXPENSIVE. Scores of Wayne county residents tomorrow will receive letters from the county treasurer conveying the infor mation they are indebted to the coun ty for personal tax and must call and, settle before August 1, or prosecution will be resorted to. All delinquents whose names begin with the letter A may expect these letters, as they were placed in the mails today. The coun ty treasurer believes he has been as considerate as possible in the matter and has allowed an ample length of time for settlement without notices. Failure to pay upon notice means prosecution, and conviction means the payment of the tax beside the court costs. The prosecutor is allowed a fee of $10 for each case. The letters sent out by the treasur er read as follows: Dear Sir: Examination of the rec ords of the county treasurer's office of Wayne county, Indiana for the past five years (the examination only made for such time, shows yourself to be chargeable and In arrears for current and delinquent taxes, the sum of $ and as you are probably aware it is le duty of the county treasurer to make, by himself or deputy, personal demand and levy upon each delinquent; and afterward the list of such as have not paid is certified to the prosecuting at torney for suit in the name of the state. Each such demand, levy and suit but adds to the cost. By payment of your delinquent tax es on or before Aug. 1, such additional fees can be saved. Upon calling to pay your taxes if you will also call for and pay all amounts due and beyond such five years, all chance of subsequent and further proceedings is avoided. Very ruly yours, B. B. MYRICK, JR., County Treasurer. Acts on Orders. The list of all delinquents in the county will be gone over by the treas urer as rapidly as possible. The far ther down the alphabet the initial let ter of the surname is, the longer time will ba allowed for payment. This is because of the length of the list and the fact that all notices can not be pre pared and mailed at the same time. The treasurer is acting in accord with orders from the state board of tax commissioners. Treasurer Myrick has delayed sending notices longer than several other treasurers of the state. Publicity given the fact prosecution was going to be resorted to, caused a larger payment of personal tax at the May installment than ever before. Many young men called to pay tax who had not paid before, although of legal age. Many delinquents have failed to pay for so long that the added penalties amount to a neat sum in ex cess of the amount of tax. A few young men who knew themselves to be In arrears have been slipping quietly into the treasurer's office and paying their tax and penalties so as to avoid the notice. Treasurer Myrick said today that as soon(as the date of the notice ex pires the name of the delinquent will be placed in the hands of the prosecut or. The law allows confiscation of property for the payment of the tax. With a fee of $10 awaiting him for conviction in each case the prosecut ' ing attorney can not be expected to appear very timid in the matter.

IN OPENING SPEECH (Continued From Page One.) of America more of the conveniences, comforts and luxuries of life. Enemy to Corporations. The Democratic party Is not an ene my of all corporations. It recognizes their great value in the industrial world. Through the agency of incor poration, scattered wealth is brought together and given a driving force that it would not otherwise possess, great enterprises are thereby under taken and undeveloped resources of the country added to the wealth of the world. No rational man can be opposed to corporations as such, and the asser tion that the Democratic party is wag ing an indiscriminate war against this form of transacting business has no foundation in fact. It is the abtise, only of corporate power that we seek to eliminate. . Viewed in the light of a great moral question, the control of corporation should remain a question of common concern rather than a political one, but the shameful complacence of the Republican party in permitting its forces to be controlled and operated by the most offending corporations of the country throws the problem into the political arena and compels the public to choose between the Demo cratic party that will, and the Repub lican party that will not place some restrictions on incorporated greed. We are now confronted with the in quiry, what assurance has the Repub lican party given that it will use the forces at its command to restore the people to their rights? In its Chicago platform it did not make even a de cent pretense of championing the peo ple's cause, and the proceedings of that convention are glaringly insin cere. It was noted that two elements were present in that gathering, one with sufficient votes to adopt a plat form and nominate its candidate for president, the other powerful enough to unwrite that platform and tie the hands of the nominee. The distin guishing feature of the Chicago plat form is its oft repeated promise to do a lot of things that the Republican par ty has heretofore failed to do. We have the following Republican confession of guilt: "We did not revise the tariff." "We did not amend the anti-trust laws to secure greater effectiveness in the prosecution of criminal monopo lies." "We did not add a single line to the interstate commerce law, giving the federal government suprevision over the issuance of stocks and bonds by interstate carriers." "We did not enact a currency meas ure that would mitigate the evils of a financial panic, such as has recently prostrated the country under a Repub lican administration.' "We did not limit the opportunities for abusing the writ of injunction" "We did not establish postal savings banks." "We did not establish a bureau of mines and mining." "We did not admit into the union the territories of New Mexico and Ari zona as separate states." The last congress was in session when innumerable banking institu tions, preferring a holiday to a funer al, closed their doors and filled the minds of millions of depositors with anxiety and fear. The sentiment in favor of postal savings banks, which had been steadily growing in this country, became almost universal dur insr the recent panic. So insistent be came the voice of the people that the president sent a special message to congress urging the establishment of postal savings banks where the earn ings of our people might De saieiy ae nosited under the direct control and responsibility of the federal govern ment, and where no peculating bank cashier or gambling board of directors could eat up the savings of years. The hostility of the Republican or ganization toward popular measures of reform is illustrated in its refusal to establish postal savings banks, and the country can safely accept this as a sample of what a Republican con gress, controlled by special interests, will do to every other measure intend ed for the neonle's relief. The Chicago platform points witn pride to the passage of a child labor law for the District or tommBia. e join in whatever felicitations are due frnm the enactment of any measure that will keep our children out of the sweat shops, but it is impossible en tirely to wipe out the evil of child labor by penalizing the employment of children of tender years. Let the republican party go further than the enactment of penal laws and in the name of humanity use its vast ener gies for the removal of the conditions that are forcing our children into the labor market. The most palpable instance of the insincerity of the Chicago convention In the Chicago convention a minor is found in its declaration respecting j ity report of the committee on reso- the issuance of injunctions. It would have been entitled to more respect if it had omitted all mention of the sub ject. At session after session of con gress labor has pleaded for relief from the abuse of injunctions, but its ap peals have fallen on deaf ears and there has been no indication that re medical legislation of any character would be enacted. The oligarchy in the house and senate has decided that nothing shall be done to weaken any advantages that corporations have gained in labor disputes. Surely this great question, probably the most conspicuous of all questions now before the people, ought to be discussed in a dispassionate manner and disposed of according to its mer its. Nobody, short of an anarchist, desires to curtail the right of the courts to prevent a threatened des truction of property. It makes no difference whether the courts are acting in excess of their jurisdiction or strictly within their delegated power, in iker , tba people have a right to throw addition al safeguards around human liberty. Having adopted a momentary plat form at Chicago the republican con vention proceeded to ratify the white house choice for president. To secure the acquiescence of the convention. the chief executive was compelled to , abandon the most vital reforms that he has been urging during the last four years. The war secretary was either not in sympathy with these pop-j ular reforms himself or else he and j his friends feared that their presence ! in the platform would sacrifice his i nomination or election by arraying j certain supports against him. m eitn- er case, the omission of these reforms '. to establish reasonable rates whenever is to the discredit of the nominee; for j it appeared that an existing schedule if he favored the income tax, a collar- was unjust or unreasonable. The na eral inheritance tax. a law requiring i tional platforms of the Republican par- the publication of campaign eontribu-, lions, the physical or actual valuation of the railroad properties in the su pervision of fares and freights and the issuance of railroad stocks and bonds; or if he were against the reck less expenditure of public moneys amounting to over a hillion dollars at the last session of congress, or if he. ike his illustrious mentor, discerned grave dangers to the republic through the great centralization of wealth, he should have so declared in unequivo cal terms and demanded that these things be inserted in his credentials. or he should decline to become the beneficiary of whatever popularity his chief has accuired by his strenuous championship of these measures. The logic of the situation prohibits the war secretary in this campaign from rid ing any hobby but his own. The Chi cago platform, which must be consid ered as his official pronouncement, bears about as much resemblance to the heligerent manifestoes that have been hurled from the White house as a lad bears to his steufather. If the highest claim that Mr. Taft has to the presidency is the prestige of the white house, it is up to him to express his sj'mpathy with and pledge his honest support to, those principles of democracy that have given the president the place he occupies in the hearts of the people. The idea seems to be creeping into the popular, mind that if the nominee of the Chicago convention shall be elected in November we will have a bisected presidency at the head of our affairs. The American people are sticklers on some things, and one of the things that they will not stand for is a divided responsibility In the white house. They will demand and they have a right to demand, that the heart that conceives, the brain that plans. and the hand that executed shall be directly answerable to the sovereign power that built the white house and selects one man at a time to fill it. As I have already indicated, we have something to do in this conven tion besides point out evils and call the republican party to task for the part it has played in creating and per petrating abuses. With the power and opportunity to carry our democratic principles, we will be called upon to revise our tar iff laws in the interest of the whole people. This issue cannot be disposed of by the assertion that the republican party also stands for tariff reform. Republican revision and democratic revision are two different things. The democratic idea that where the tariff enables the trusts to maintain a system of extortion the duty should be removed from all trust made goods, so that competition from abroad may compel reasonable prices to our own people. There is a vast difference be tween the protection of American in dustries and the protection of criminal monopolies. Which kind of protection does the republican party really in tend to preserve and what tariff schedules does it propose to scale down? Will it not depend upon the preponderance of power in the coun cils of the party and in the halls of legislation, and with the gigantic trusts in control of the machinery of the republican party, does any reason able man believe that American farms, American labor and "honest Am erican industries will escape the tar iff blade? Can you imagine Cannon Dalzell and Payne and others of the same stripe sitting down at a long table devising ways and means for the retention of tariff benefits to the far mers, the artisans and that class of manufacturers who are satisfied with a fair return of their investments, while they use the pruning shears on the products of the favored trusts? Such an unusual scene would live in the history of the nation forever. There are still other reforms press ing upon the attention of our people and demanding action at the hands of the political parties. The corrupt use of large sums of money in political campaigns is largely responsible for the subversion of the people's will at the polls. The masses are awaken ing to a realization of the great pow er of gold in great contests that ought to be determined according to the character of nominees and the sound ness and morality of political issues; and there is a general demand for publicity in the collection and use of campaign funds so that our citizens may know whether a political party has purchased its way into office or l ; . - . i i I uaa nun us t iviunes uy iionesi uifans. lutions, containing a declaration in favor of campaign publicity, was over whelmingly defeated unon a rOll Call of the convention and the republican party placed itself squarely upon rec ord in favor of concealing the names of contributors, and the amounts of their contributions. By a vote of fifty- two to one in the committee and a vote of more than ten to one in thejina,ls ana oluer body of the convention, they confess ed their guilt. They thus admitted the charge so frequently made by our party that republican success in the past "has largely depended upon the vast sums of money collected from the great monopolies of the country and used in the conduct of its cam paigns. The people have a right to know whether or not any political par ty is maintained from the treasuries of the corporations, for it is not to be presumed that large appropriations for campaign purposes would be made by corporate interests unless there be an implied or expressed agreement to rjrotaot Uma or preserve them in their lawless exploitation of the peo ple, et the voters of the country ser iously consider whether the refusal of the republican party to disclose the sources and amounts of its election finances is not a confession of the debating and corrupt use of money In its campaigns. It is eminently Kroner that this eon-1 vention should define the Democratic j attitude toward the regulation of trans-j portation companies and call the at- tention of the country to the indisputa- j hie fact that it was only after years j of Democratic effort that an ame nd- i ment was mage to the interstate com-j merce law authorizing the commission ' remained silent upon tnis great question for years, and the fact that the necessary change was advocated by a Republican president, who suc ceeded only through the aid of the Democrats in both branches of con gress, in placing the amendment upon cur stamte books, does not affect the credit to which our party is entitled for having worked persistently for such an amendment. Further amend ment to our laws giving the federal government supervision over the issu ance of railroad stocks and bonds is demanded, but the Republican con gress that has recently adjourned, ut terly failed to authorize .such super vision and yet the Republican party, in its last national convention, had the audacity to promise that if re turned to pwer it would enact legis lation to effect that end. The fixing of transportation charges and the control of issuances of rail road securities are inseparably con nected with the actual valuation of railroads. The Democratic party be lieves that the first thing to do is to secure a physical valuation of the roads, that is. a valuation of the solid rather than the liquid assets of rail road companies, while, on the other hand the Republican party, on a roll call in the convention, by an over whelming vote took an unequivocal stand in favor of a system of water rates without giving the people the benefit of a meter. We search in vain for one syllable in the Chicago platform pledging the Republican party to retrenchment and reform; and it is no mere coincidence that has given us a billion dollar ses sion of congress on the eve of a na tional election and the possible revis ion of the tariff. Reckless extrava gance is to be condemned at all times. If it be asked how this and other similar abuses may be overcome, our answer is, that men must be elected to both branches of congress who are absolutely responsible to their constit uents and governed in their legisla tive conduct by the consciousness that they have not been sent to the halls of congress for the purpose of represent ing selfish interests, but as servants of the commonwealth. There is one branch of congress that must be Democratized before the people can hope for the character of representation that is gathered on the face of our organic law. So long as we malntin the present method of oiotinc T7nitpd States senators, we cannot hope that the upper chamber of congress will reflect the popular will. There are so many steps be tween the ballot and the bastile of the senate, through the circuitous medium of state legislatures, that the will of the voter is waylaid and destroyed be fnw it ran force its way into this mighty citadel of corporate power The Democratic party will continue to labor for the election of United States senators, and it appeals to the voters of America to elect members of the different state legislatures who will pledge themselves to vote for no candidate for the United States sen ate that is not in favor of this reform The affirmative position of the Democratic party upon these gTeat questions will be made clear during the coming campaign and disdaining all subterfuges, it will speak in a lan- euace that cannot be misunderstood Its voice will ring with a genuine love for humanity, and the charge of in sincerity will never be brought to Its doors. As we meet here in the heart of this great West, we will be pardoned if we express our admiration for that vast empire stretching from the banks of the Mississippi to the golden shores of the Pacific. Our fertile plains and hillsides are springing like magic into life. On the crests of lofty moun tain ranges the snows of winter are conserved until the summer heat car ries their blessings to the thirsty plains below. Side by side, individu al enterprise and federal policy are converting great areas of arid land in to populous communities where peace and contentment lie down at every door. With Its agriculture, its mines, its timbers, its growing facto ries and its commerce, the West is im pressing' its national importance upon the public mind. On the bosom of the Pacific will be enacted the great com mercial struggles of the future, and the interests of American commerce in connection with the exposure of our western shores to anv hostile attack will demand that the greater portion of the American navy shall be retained in the waters of the Pacific to preserve the peace of the world.

The democratic party realizes the part that Americans must inevitably play in the affairs of .ne world, and that we can not escape participation in the settlement of every world prob- lem that arises: hn .Tmeri.a-s. wpieht and influence must ever be on the side of peace, on the s'.de ef justice, en the side of the oppressed: ar.d if the will of the people shall commit to our hands the scepter of power, it will be used fur the rvaiiythm of thp huh American ideals that raise our own people to loftier and better thinps and through our precepts and examples contribute to the well being and hap piness of all mankind. TESTIMONY IN CASE WAS REVOLTING Merle Campbell and Charles Boreman Arraigned. The case of the State vs. Merle Cam pbell and Charles Boreman. upon the charge of fornication was heard in city court before a jury today. The de fendants were represented by Henry I. Johnson and at 11 oehnk this morn ing Mr. Johnson and the prosecutor became involved in an argument over a legal question. Both wished to cite authorities to the court and the trial was adjourned until afternoon. Owing to the nature of the evidence to be introduced and the fact a number of women was subpoenaed as witness es the trial was heard behind closed doors. Much of the testimony was of a re volting nature. It was presented bv women, some of whom are residents of the neighborhood in which Mrs. Campbell has resided on South Second street for some time. The defense pre sented was to the effect, the man was a boarder and roomer at Mrs. Camp bell's home and was not staying there for immoral purposes. It was claim ed by the state the two have cohabited together as man and wife, although not married. Seated upon the lap of its mother during the presentation of testimony this morning was the little three-year- old child of Mrs. Campbell. The ba by freted at the restraint and its in nocent twadling often interrupted the presentation of testimony that would have burned is ears had it been old enough to comprehend. A number of Main street business men were summoned as jurors. The newspapers were spoken of by many as their source of information con cerning the case. One shoe dealer stated he had read the headlines In the papers, but did not pursue the sub ject matter, owing to its nature.

ALASKA Refrigerators BEAUTIFUL CHALICE One Valued at $2,034 Is Now In Possession of St Mary's Church. IS STUDDED WITH GEMS. St. Mary's Catholic church of this city probably has the most valuable chalice, a vessel used in the celebra tion of mass, to be found in this part f the fount ry. It i made of solid gold and silver and is richly studded with precious stones of every descrip tion. The chalice ha? just been re ceived from the New York firm which made if. A conservative value of this costly ve.si.el is I. Last Sunday the chalice was on exhi bition at t.ie church for some time. The gold and silver is plain, but the numerous jewels are set in a most ar tistic manner. This chalice was made from gold, silver and jewels contrib uted by one hundred and twenty local people, the majority members of the church. The cos-t of making this chalice was The gold and sil- er work is valued at $ini. Of the various jewels thirty-seven are dia monds. Last January Father Mattingly ask ed the members of his congregation to contribute gold, silver and jewels, so that a new chalice could be made. His request was quickly responded to. The vessel has not yet been consecrated by the bishop, but this ceremony will be performed within a short time. In the pulpit last Sunday Father Mattingly called attention to the new chalice which sparkled before the con gregation. Then he gave his parish ioners a broad hint. With a twinkle in his eye he said that t he did not know Just when the new chalice would be used, but probably not until the new church had been built. It is un derstood that Father Mattingly is quietly working on a plan for the erection of a new church building and that he will soon Mart a campaign to raise a building fund.
