Items Gathered in From Far and Near At Richmond, on Sunday, some months ago, a raid on the principal hotel in the city was made. A large ' quantity of liquor was found in a bath room on the second floor of the hotel, and confiscated. Two men were found J in the room when the police broke in the door. A cplored waiter was on hand, and in the consignment was a large quantity of beer in bottles. The Wayne county prosecutor, after nego tiating with the attorneys for the pro prietor of the hotel, announces that he will not prosecute the hotel man under the blind tiger act, hut will aim- ply have him fined for permitting liquor to be sold upon the premise without a license. In the face of all this evidence, a former trial showed that a jury could not be secured In Richmond that would convict under the blind tiger act. AH this throws light upon the sincerity of the claim that Richmond went wet in fear of the blind tiger. It has the blind tiger now and proposes to keep him, along with the saloon. In Marion, - on evidence much weaker than that offered against the hotel proprietor at Richmond, a blind tiger, operator was given a jail sentence and fine the other day that will mean two years confinement. Ma rion, dry. convicts the blind tiger oper ators. Richmond, wet, confesses her Inability to punish them. That's the difference. Marion Chronicle. TWINKLES WATCH!

WIT EXHIBIT TO OE THE LARGEST EVER HELD HERE (Continued From Pas One.) THE DICTATOR In the first place it should be called to mind that the mayor is only the executive (or should be) he is not (and should not be) the legis lative part of the government which represents the people. That brings up a very serious reason why Gordon should never be mayor of this town. In brief with the aid of his newspaper he would be more than mayor a dictator a miniature mayor a city bosslet. And this at the price of every man's reputation who dared oppose him. In the past he has made insinuations against those who dared stand up against what he has admitted are "off hand" quickly considered judg ments. This is ingrained in the man he could not change his charac ter. This is bad enough in a man who does not own and control a news paper bad enough in a private citizen who is a candidate on the repub lican ticket. Have you thought what it would mean if Gordon were mayor? How very desirable to have a back-biting, snarling auspicious and insinuating man for mayor, with the full control of his newspaper to at tack anybody, everything and every measure of which he, with a super abundance of narrow egotism did not for the moment approve! The mayor is not the legislative branch of the city. Council is. The mayor, in the wisdom of the framers of the city government has only the right to veto, and to vote in case of a tie. Suppose Gordon vetoed some measure of which he momentarily did not approve or had deluded himself about? What then? ,- Can't you imagine what he will da then? He with the "off hand" decision of which he it so proud, will proceed forthwith, to blast the reputation and insinuate against the man's honor who stands against him. ' And this without waiting to find out whether he "owes an apology." an interurban center. At present Quaker , city ranks low. There connection 3 wltli Indiananolis and Dayton and points beyond, but no where else. Other cities of Indiana. with no better conditions, hare much wider connections. Kokomo connects with Logansport on the west; Peru and Ft. Wayne on the north: Indiana polis on the south and Marion on the east. Anderson connects with India napolis, Muncie. Wabash and Middle- town. Ft. Wayne, Muncie, South Bend and Laporte all radiate to more large cities than does Richmond. Tjere have been several attempts secure new local lines, but they have failed through lack of tho prop- push and capital. One thina that has entered into f he project and frightened some of the capitalists is the fact th : ttxrA country surrounding Richmond is very rolling and exceed ingly hard to grade. This has been the cause for dropping several plans. was thought at one time that it ould be impossible to reach Rich mond by railroad because of this. Notwithstanding this ! fact Richmond now ranks high as a railroad center. Would be Good Venture. There are smaller cities within short distances of Richmond that would amply repay all efforts to con nect with them. Winchester, with Fountain City and Lynn as interme diate points, would furnish excellent service. A road connecting with New Castle and Hagerstown and further on with Anderson and Muncie and the gas belt would be invaluable to Rich mond. Cincinnati and other southern points might be tapped to advantage. road to parallel the abandoned cut to the southeast, has been proposed. This would take in Greensburg and Shelbyville and the name Dronosed is the Richmond, Greensburg and Shel byville line. It would also touch Rush- ville. The possibilities for makine Rich mond an interurban center seem to be exceptionally good and the Dresent condition contrasted with the possibil ities make it apparent that steDs in that direction are not far off. We envy no one of the present candidates for councilman their office if Gordon becomes mayor. Will any of them dare to vote against a meas ure that Gordon has not himself commanded to be introduced by issuing ' an order through his newspaper? Pleasant indeed to do so and find that overnight you have become a crook when just before, you had been as sured by the same bosslet (because you have bended the knee) that you are incorruptable. ' Will a man dare vote as he thinks right, if Gordon has not already rendered snap judgment on it in the editorial column of. his paper? The Czarlet of Little Russia, has scarcely greater power. Lese majeste. " SINCE GORDON WITH THE AID OF PART OF HIS PRESENT ORvT GANIZATION DOUBLE CROSSED CAMPBELL AND SUCCEEDED IN NOMINATING BARNARD BY BREAKING HIS PLEDGE TO MR. CAMP BELLHE SEEMS SO CONFIDENT OF HIS POWER TO MANIPU LATE THE PARTY THAT THE TOWN, TOO, OFFERS ATTRACTIONS IN THE DICTATORSHIP. HE MAY ASPIRE EVEN HIGHER SINCE HE HAS BECOME "THE BEST MAN TO LEAD THE REPUBLICAN HOSTS." AND HE IS THE MORE CONFIDENT IN THIS SINCE WITH THE OTHER PART OF HIS ORGANIZATION HE DECLARES THAT HE MADE THE TOWN WET, AND THEREFORE CAN RUN THE TOWN. ' AND THIS IDEA IS NOT OF RECENT ORIGIN, FOR BY ATTACK ING A MAIN STREET JEWELER SHORTLY AFTER THE FALL FES TIVALBY. TRYING TO INTIMIDATE HIM INTO ADVERTISING HE THOUGHT THEN THAT HE COULD RUN THE TOWN. Pray tell us, if he gets the mayor's office if he gets the power to bulldoze council with his newspaper and to misrepresent his official acts to the people, what will he do? Will a councilman stop and hold to his belief? Or will he think of his wife, his children and his good name, and what may appear in the Item? ' -: . -J ' No doubt the reason that Mr. Gordon will not devote ALL his time to being mayor is because he will not be content with being mayor. He would like to t be council dictator and political boss at the same time. And even if Gordon should take all his time to being mayor that is bad enough but think of the additional power of coercion which his news paper and his methods of attack give him. Gordon announces confidently that he will not "allow" anything to be railroaded through council which translated means only that council will not be allowed to pass anything which he, Gordon, does not railroad himself. IT MAY BE THAT SOME OF THESE "OFF HAND" JUDGMENTS OF. GORDON'S MAY BE MORE HARMFUL IN THE CITY'S BUSINESS THAN IN THE COLUMNS OF HIS NEWSPAPER MINUS THE OFFICE OF MAYOR. per Jewelry; textiles and many other things. : Paul Ross and Herbert McDIvitt are arranging an exhibit of art photogra phy which will Include. a distinct new feature, 'and one that will appeal to the lovers of photography. .
