TENTH HAS BROKEfl OUT WITH MUCH ZEST Enemies of Congressman Crumpacker to Take War path in an Effort to Secure His Downfall. SPEAKER CANNON IS USED AS A WEAPON Opponents of Representative State Speaker's Enmity to Him Will Result in His Ruin. Indianapolis, Aug. 9. That old Tenth district fight against Congress Ijnan Crumpacker is breaking out 'again, and as usual it comes from .Tippecanoe county. The fact that Speaker Cannon has turned Crum (packer down and ousted him from his Iplaee as a member of the ways and finesse committee of the house, is be Jng seized upon by the enemies of Crumpacker as a means of creating 'fresh trouble for him in the district, fit is said that some of the tenth dis trict politicians who are employed in jthe state house, are sending letters 'into the tenth district calling atten jtion to the fact that Crumpacker is 'in bad with Cannon," and that, there- ; fore, be has lost his usefulness as a ! member of congress from the tenth 'district. They point out that Crum I packer w4H no longer be able to get anything for the district because Can non wilt head him off, to punish him 'for the stand he took in the tariff Might. They point out that a congress i man who cannot get anything for his I district is not worth much as a mem- ! her of congress, and that it is time 'to make a change. This means, of , course, the reopening of the old fight wmca naa us origin at me memoraoie .Michigan City convention some years ago when Crumpacker was nominated over J. Frank Hanly, who afterward became governor. Watch the Effect. .Whether these letters which are be ing sent out over the tenth district 'will have the effect of bringing out any candidates against Crumpacker : for the nomination cannot be told rnow, but it is evident that this is their jpurpose. It is pointed out, however, 'that if any other candidates do come out they will have to be new, young men, because none of the older men who had a hand In the Michigan City convention or who have been mixed lip in the anti-Crumpacker fight in past years could win a nomination. Friends of Crumpacker have learned of the letter writing that is going on and they are doing a little writing of their own. Crumpacker has some tenth district friends in the state house, and It Is said they are taking eood care to see that every person who gets an anti-Orumpacker letter I also gets one setting forth the Crum packer side of the situation. ' Cannon in Bad. ! Speaker Cannon is in bad in the tenth district, . with the republican leaden as well as with the part in rgeneral and it is believed that under ordinary circumstances Cannon would be roundly condemned for his action tin removing Crumpacker from the iwajs and means committee, but un der the circumstances as they exist now, with the district fight on hand, the axrtl-Cnimpackerits are willing to aide in with Cannon In the fight against" the Valparaiso man, hoping iChus to The able to beat him out for the next nomination. The friends of Crumpacker point to the record he has 'made since he went to congress, and they declare that it is a fine one and that he has done as much for the dis trict as -any other man could have done. They say also that his long years of service in congress have giv en him experience that makes him much more valuable as a member 'than any new man could be. There fore, they insist that it would be a very great mistake to turn him down ind send a new man to congress from 'the district There is not the least danger, how over, that the republicans will lose the tenth district, no matter who is nom inated for congress. The republican majority in that district is so large that it will elect any candidate put forth. HEIRONIMUS HOME. Prof. N. C.

A VERY COSTLY EXPENSE FOR BOARDING ITS WARDS IT IS ESTIMATED THE COUNTY PAYS OUT TO THE INSTITUTION $1,600 A YEAR. The question is heing asked: What would become of the jail at the Home of the Friendless, if the county were to build a woman's ward at the county jail? This jail is owned by the county. It was built at an expense - of about $4,000. The county boards women prisoners, Insane women and delin quent children at the . institution. The county pays for board for these in mates 40 cents per day. The county, pays for a guard for the insane $1 per day and furnishes the board. The home is a quasi-public institution only. The organization that controls it re ceived for boarding prisoners during the last quarter. $406.05. That is at the rate of $1,600 per year. What Expense Is. The county supplies the boarders. pays their board and furnishes the place to house them. The prisoners are supposed to be under the care of the sheriff. It is eleven squares from the home to the sheriff's residence and in case of emergency, it would le some time before he could arrive. The law requires that insane prisoners be under the custody of the sheriff. With out reference to records, the sheriff would he unable to tell how many in sane prisoners there are at the institu tion. He is not on the premises, so a guard is employed. The county pays the bill. The county pays for another guard over the insane prisoners at the county jail. But if the county builds an insane ward and women's prison as contem plated there will be opposition, it is alleged. The opposition will be di rected in the main against the removal of women prisoners and probably the Insane as well, from the Jail at the home. WILL ATTEND FAIR.

"Conscious motherhool is the ideal of the future. But by oonscious motherhood I do not mean something to sublime for under standing. Perfect womanhood is tem pered by a dash of the devil. "Unconscious motherhool is the ap peal of the weakness and soft beauty in our old ideals. "The height of woman's mental at tainment will be conscious mother hood." Holding in the hollow of his hand a small plaster cast of a woman's head that typified his meaning, Victor D. Brenner, sculptor and designer of the Lincoln 1 cent piece, was slowly putting into words an ideal that his genius has already wrested from the marble. "The woman of tomorrow will com bine an intelligence and sensuality that Is perfection," the sculptor con tinued. "It is the woman of tomorrow that I have tried to model. Our old ideals were not intellectual.

Only recently his entire cabinet resigned and his new administration is not yet on a settled basis. It is understood that difficul ties are being encountered which may lead to new trouble among his sec retaries.

Ashley did not ride a bicycle, he did not ride a horse, he did not per manently obstruct the sidewalk, he did not blockade traffic, he was not violating the speed ordinance, so what did he do? He was on the wrong side of the street, but the ordinance ap plying to automobiles using the right 6ide says "street" and not sidewalk.

HAS BROKEN NECK BUT HEJW LIVE Operation Will Be Performed On Lynn, Ind., Young Man Today. FALL WAS RESPONSIBLE ALBERT KRAFT WAS IN TREE GATHERING FRUIT WHEN HE LOST HIS FOOTING CERVICAL VERTEBRAE BROKEN.

He sunerea a fracture of the cervical vertebrae in a fall from a tree and since that time has been paralyzed. His condition is extremely critical and surgeons are skeptical as to the result of the oper ation. His life will be saved if possi ble. Kraft was high in a tree gathering fruit when he lost hts footing and fell to the ground, striking in such a man ner that the vertebrae in his neck were separated and the spinal cord crushed and bruised. He was given attention immediately, but there was no im provement and it was finally decided to send him to Indianapolis for an op eration. Nerves of Stomach Saved. Practically the only thing that stands between Kraft and death is the fact that the nerves of his face, heart and stomach are not paralyzed. These nerves come from brain centers and the injured man is able to eat and di gest his food with little difficulty. The remainder of his body is not however, under his control. His arms and body and legs are paralyzed and he can not move them in any direction. Attend ants are needed to turn him in bed and care for all his wants. Little information about the case could be obtained from the hospital and it is not known just what hopes are entertained for Kraft's life. It is certain that the spinal cord is not sep arted, but how badly it is crushed can not be told. Surgeons will adjustthe bones of. his neck in the hopeT'that the spinal cord will return to its nor mal condition and the paralysis will be overcome.
