Given Certificates of Merit as They Meet Pure Food Law Requirements. Riot Threatened at Olympic Games Today. OWENS CONTINUES WORK. Indianapolis, July 23. What will the labor vote of Indiana do at the coming election? Ask this question Of Edgar A. Perkins, president of the Btate Federation of Labor, and he will tell you that it will go to Bryan and Marshall. Mr. Perkins 1c a democrat and always has been. Ask the same question of John Mitchell, former ieader of the miners and he will tell you that labor will probably vote aB it always has according to the personal views of the man but that he, him self, will support Bryan, at least with his vote. Mitchell is also a democrat. He is a conservative, however, while Perkins may be put down as a radical. The latter has always been a Bryan man. Mitchell has not. He takes pains to speak only for himself, as Mitchell does, not believe that labor should be bound politically to any man or party. All efforts to drag him into politics have failed, and just so will fail all efforts to draw from him a Word that might be construed into political advice by the thousands of men who love him and believe in him. Perkins, as the editor of a labor pa per, has stirred up much contention, his editorial policy resulting in his withdrawal from the presidency of the Central Labor union, a body made up of representatives of all local unions. He has made the statement that if Watson is not defeated for governor of Indiana he will never again pin his faith to the labor vote. He expects to drive this vote into the democratic party, for Bryan and Martiall, but he Is the only labor leader hereabouts Who thinks that it can be done. Al ready plans are under way by certain local unions to pass resolutions of thanks to Taft for his fair treatment of laborers sent to the Panama dis trict, and as reports come from the canal zone snowing unusual precau tions for the preservation of the health of American workmen, as well as high pay, the kindest feeling is shown for Mart, wno is known to nave Kept a close eye on these affairs. No, it will be found that the labor unionists will do their own thinking, as usual, and vote accordingly. Even the fact that Samuel Gompers, who works in close touch with Perkins in Indiana labor affairs, is out for Bryan will not count for much, it is thought, as Gompers has ever been an advocate of unit vot ing by labor organizations, as it might be called the very thing at which John Mitchell balks and be it under stood that a syllable from Mitchell is of more force amoug wage earners . than a whole volume of either Gomp ers or Perkins. , Bowers Active.

Spekenhier Of this city, who is treasurer of the Indiana State Auto mobile association, announced today that there is a movement on foot to have the Vanderbilt cup race held this fall in the northwestern part of the state. The movement was inau gurated by the Chicago Automobile club, and has been taken up by the In diana State Automobile association, which is affiliated with the American Automobile association. If the Vanderbilt cup race, which is annually the most important automo bile event held in this country, is se cured for this state the I. S. A. A. would favor having overnor Hanly call out several companies of the na tional guards to patrol the course The State association anticipates that at first thought there would be opposi tion to having the big event held in this state, but it is Confident that when the people understand the bene fits which would be derived from the race this opposition would cease. It is pointed out that the race would attract thousands of people, that many of them would travel in their machines through nearly every section of the state; that the farmers in the locality where the race would be held would be paid big fees for renting ground for parking of auto mobiles ;that the roads comprising the race course would be oiled and placed in good repair and various other bene fits. In past years the Vanderbilt cup race has been held on Long Island, New York. The contestants in this event come from all over the United States and Europe. Long Island peo pie living in the vicinity of the race course are annually enriched to the ex tent of over $100,000 by this race, consequently they favor it rather than oppose it.
