SHUTS CRITICISED HIM.

Rome, April 4. In spite of the aban
donment of his projected Tlslt to the
Tsileas,' the populace of Rome today
fare a .hearty greeting to Theodore
Hobievelt. when be was whirled from
his hotel to the quirtnaL. There the
ex-presldent and Kermit Roosevelt
Were received by King Victor Eman
uel. ; Mr. -Roosevelt was accompanied
by Commander Long, naval , attache
of tha American embassy here, and
the embassies of the first secretary.
Ccftrte the hotel Rasa 8sjnntwhere
the Roosevelt party Is staying, crowds
gathered early and at the first ap
pearance of the former president
broke Into cheers.. From the time the
party left by auto, for the palace, till
they, arrived and were received by
Oen Brusatl. aide to . the king. Mr.
Roosevelt had not a moment In which
he was not given an ovation by the
curious and enthusiastic crowds on
The Vatican Incident.
The comment of most of the morn
lag papers, particularly the Radical
sheets, on the abandonment of the
visit to the Pope, la favorable to Mr.
The blame for the break is placed
on Cardinal Merry Del Val. the papal
secretary of state, by the Messagero,
which declare that the secretary
, "should have known that a free citi-
sen ox America never becomes a slave
a torn Vatican."
The Klta. one of th laaAlnar rarilo.l
papers, goes even farther, declaring
uat cue former president, "has not
tost much by not seeing the Pope,"
aac predicting a wider following for
ISr. Roosevelt ae the result of his
stand. The Incident, according to
this paper, la an Indication of intoler
ance "even toward Americans, who
contributed generously to the Peter's
Seen In Other Light.
, On the other hand, the papers In
sympathy with the Catholic church
. view the matter from an entirely dif
ferent standpoint, the general attitude
betag that Mr. Roosevelt wished to
force himself to an equality with the
Pope. There Is much adverse com-
. meat for Mr. Roosevelt, and the ef
fecta of his attitude oa American
Catholics Is commented on widely,
some predictions of a- lose of support
by Mt. Roosevelt being made.
Friends of the Vatican today point
ed emphatically at a statement made
by Mgr. Kennedy, the rector of the
Anertcan college. In which he said
that no word had come to him from
Mr. Roosevelt after the message from
the Vatican saying that the audience
could not take place except with the
understanding expressed In the form
er message. It was thus made an-
parent today that efforts would be
made to show that Mr. Roosevelt had
ellcMed the Vatican by making the
various communications publio with
out consulting the Vatican or answer
la? Its final message. The statement
of Mgr. Kennedy la fun follows:

Wind Was Very Welcome to
the Farmers as Crops Need

FARMERS SMILING TODAY
PRECIPITATION WAS NEARLY
HALF AN INCH AND ENOUGH TO
BREAK BACKBONE OF THE
LONG 8PRING DROUGHT.
Damage to the extent of several
hundred dollars was done in the vicin
ity of Chester last evening by a min
iature cyclone, which, although lasting
only for a few minutes, was very se
vere. Fruit trees were uprooted, fen
ces were blown down like so much
paper and the roofs of two large barns
were torn off by the fury of the storm.
With a rush and a loud roar, the
whirlwind passed the house of Ed
ward Charles, about two miles north
of Chester, while the family was sit
ting in the front yard. It formed
about 7 o'clock in the shape of a fun
nel, a short distance from the house.
When almost directly, in front of the
residence of I Mr. Charles, the whirl
wind swerved from its path and struck
the' banTSfting the" roof of thai struc
ture high in - the air and. hurling it
into the orchard of William Cranton,
about two hundred yards distant.
Horses Were Uninjured.
Other portions -of . the barn were
carried great distances by the force
of the windi and" parts , of the timber
were found at least half a' .mile away
this morning. . There , were six head
of horses in the barn when the struc
ture was unroofed; but none of them
were injured., Several wagons and
carriages in the barn yard were blown
over, but not seriously -damaged. The
chimney on the ' house also suffered
the loss of a .few bricks.
The cyclone then passed on to the
farm of Lewis Hampton and here also
the damage ' was great. , The roof of
the large barn was torn completely
off and a : portion of the siding was
blown over and ripped into splinters.
A smaller barn adjoining was comple
tely , wrecked. It is estimated that
the damage done there will reach
about 400 as the barn was one of the
largest and finest in that vicinity. A
quantity of hay from both the barn, of
Mr. Charles and that of Mr. Hampton
was lifted by the force of the wind
from the loft and scattered over a dis
tance of several hundred yards.
Rain Badly Needed.
So far as could be learned the storm
of yesterday confined its damage to
the vicinity of Chester. The rainfall
amounted ta .48 of an inch and was
accompanied by a high. wind. The rain
was badly needed and the farmers to
day are wearing that satisfied expres
sion. The ' continued drought of the
past month has done considerable
damage to the growing crops and an

ARE ADMITTED DV
THE COURT TODAY
An Italian and Russian, Al
though Little Unfamiliar
With U. S. Affairs, Were
Held to Be Acceptable.
CANNON AND ALDRICH
Judge Fox Is Informed, But He
Says Knowledge of Appli
cants Is Equal to That of
1 vSome Yankees.
... Although Antonio Ferrantl, an Ital
ian, and Morris Fivel, a Russian Jew,
proved they could be better informed
on the the judicial, executive and legis
lative departments , of government, of
the united States and 0 Indiana, yet
their petitions to become naturalized
citizens or tne united states were
granted this morning, when they ap
peared before Judge Fox of the circuit
court. Dr. James Thomas Foster, a
practicing physician of this city, was
the third petitioner, but owing to a
technical error in filling out a deposi
tion,1 his prayer can not be granted un
til May 16.
Dr. Foster was the first petitioner to
be examined this, morning. He is a
native of Ireland and has been in
America for the past fifteen years. He
first located in Canada rand then in
Pittsburg, coming to this city in No
vember, 1900., He was well informed
on all subjects on which he was ques
tioned, but for the error in the deposi
tion, undoubtedly would, have been de
clared a citizen of the United States.
This is the third application of An
tonio Ferrantl for naturalization. Pre
viously, his petitions had been denied
because of his marital affairs. Before
coming to this country he was married
In Italy and has one child there. He
was married after landing in this
country and lives with his American
wife and two children. His marital
troubles have been straightened out as
he obtained a divorce in Cincinnati
from his first wife.
He first came to this country in
March, 1899, and then later returned
to Italy, coming back to the United
States a second time in 1903, and has
been a resident of the city ever since,
being employed on the Pennsylvania.
He is known as an industrious work
man and Is ambitious.
. Morris Fivel is a well known junker
and has been a resident of the city for
several years. He ,c appeared to be
well Informed on some, conditions In
both the United States and Russia, in
fact sufficiently so that he was deemed
fit for citizenship. ; It was proven that
he had been arrested, twice, once for
buying of a, minor and a second time
on a charge of stealing junk, but was
released on the latter charge.
Answers Were Amusing.
Rather amusing answers were made
by Fivel and Ferrantl. Neither seems
to know much about the state legis
lature and the ; congress, r Ferrantl
was asked who represented the Sixth
district in congress and he replied Al
drich and Cannon. , Attorneys and

spectators to : the proceedings were
not inclined to question this. Fivel
was asked whether he had ever voted

plied in the affirmative. He said that

IIAME RESOLUTION COMMITTEE TODAY
It Is Generally Predicted That the Sixth District Member Will
Be Rudolph G. Leeds of This City The Question of
Indorsing or Ignoring Payne-Aldrich Tariff
Law Rests in Hands of This Committee. ,
" Indianapolis, Ind., April 4. Interest
today centers in . the arrangements
which are being made for the Republi
can state convention which will be
held in this city tomorrow. This Is
the first' time in many years that a
state convention of either party has
occupied, but one day, but the leaders
of the party this year decided that a
two days' session was not necessary.
They believed that all of the business
of the convention could be as well done
in one day as in two, and that many
Republicans from over the state would
be more willing to spend one day here
than more. This, it was believed,
would increase the attendance and give
the , Republicans from all corners of
the state an opportunity to get to
gether and talk things over.
Another thing that was in the minds
of the party leaders when they decid
ed on a one day convention was that
this is not the time for a lot of long
winded : speeches. They did not be-.
lieve it would be good policy at this
time, to have a- number of speeches,
It is recognized by all that there is
just one main issue in the campaign.
this year; and that is the re-election of
Senator Bverldge"' to the United
- Avoid Many Speeches.
In the face of this fact it was believ
ed by the leaders that there was no
need for a lot of speeenmaking which
might complicate the situation. It
was, of course, plain that it was uy to
Senator Beveridge to make the : key-
i note speech, and this was arranged.
The senator's speech has been prepar
ed and it is said that it will be dne
of the strongest ever heard in a state
convention in this state. Nothing is
known of its contents, even the sena
tor's most intimate associates and
friends not having been given an in
sight into its make up. But those
who have studied the situation : seem
to believe that it will be a Btrong ef
fort and that when Senator Beveridge
gets, through speaking there will not
be any doubt left as to what he means
and what he stands for. . -
But more important, even, than the
speech of Senator Beveridge at this
time is the possible platform declara
tions on the matters at issue. As has
been stated before, there is a diversity
of opinion' as to whether the platform
should take a decided stand one way
or the other on the Payne-Aldrich tar
iff law. The members of the resolu
tions committee which has in hand the
making of the platform will be chosen
today by the various district delega
tions after they arrive in this city
Bach congressional district will have
one member of this committee, and
much interest is shown in the possible
selections by the various districts.
Makeup of Committee.
As nearly as could be learned this
morning, the committee will probably
be composed of the following:
First District, uncertain.
- Second, District, Charles Sefrit, edi
tor of the Washington, Ind., Herald.
Third District, Dr. C F. ; Hancock,
Fourth District. William E. Spring
Fifth , District, Howard Maxwell,
Sixth District, Rudolph Leeds," Rich
Seventh District, Henry W. Bennett,
Eighth District, Frank Snyder, Port
land. Ninth District, Ralph Kane, Nobles-
Tenth District, uncertain.
Eleventh District. George B. Lock
Twelfth District, Owen N. Heaton,
Thirteenth District, uncertain.
Insurgents in ControL .
It" will be seen from this list that If
the committee Is made up as given
here, the insurgents will be in control
of the committee and will have the say
in preparing the platform declarations
on the tariff, as well as on other sub
jects. This, of course, is not an offi
cial list, however, and it may be chang
ed in some places, though it Is believ
ed to be a good guess on the member
ship of the committee with the excep
tion: of the districts In which it Is Im
possible at this time to make a predic
tion as to the selection.
Another matter that win eanse the
resolutions committee much concern,
when it meets tonight to consider the
platform Question, Is what to say on
the temperance qnertign. There is a
strong element In the party that be
lieves the platform should remain si
lent on this subject, and they felve as c
their reason for this position that the
temperance question Is settled and that -there
is no need for further agitation :
along that line.
Is a Strong Law.
They point to the fact that there is
now on the statute books of Indiana
the strongest kind of law on this sub :
ject. .They say the local option law
is there and that' it has been held con
stitutional by the supreme court. They
point to the Moore remonstrance law
and the Nicholson law and say that
these in connection with the local op
tion law cover every point that could
be covered by temperance legislation.
The only thing left, they say, would be
to declare In favor of state wide pro
hibition, and there Is no possibility
that such a declaration would he made
by any state convention of either party.,
except the prohibition party.
One of the strongest supporters of
this position is Charles Sefrit, of.
Washington, who has always been op
posed to the local option law. Sefrit
believes there should not be any dec
laration along this line, but that the
question should be regarded as settled f
unless the legislature itself should de
cide that some change should be .made, -He,
fears that any further declaration.
when it is unnecessary, would only , ,f
drive the liberal element of the voting
population further away from the par- '
Lockwood for Option.
Leading the forces which will de- "
mand an open declaration In favor of v:
retaining the local option and other
temperance laws is George B. Lock
wood, of Marion. -, Some time ago,
Lockwood said in his paper, the Mari
oh Chronicle, that he hoped he would 4
be on the resolutions committee at the
state convention In -order ' that he
might lead the fight for such a dec la- ' -ration.
It is almost certain that he "
will be on the committee and he will
then have an opportunity to carry out :
his wishes, Therefore, unless a strong -conservative
hand is laid on the com
mittee to keep the two opposing views
from clashing, it Is feared that trouble
may come from this division of opin
ion. . i
The fact is that there will be little -for
the platform. committee to do' but
to settle 1 these questions of tariff and
temperance declarations. - There are
no important state Issues before the " '.
people at this time on which either
party can be expected to devote much -time.
. Things have been going along t
quite serenely so far as state matters
are concerned, excepting the temper
ance question. It is recognised by
all that the eyes of the entire nation
are on Indiana this week because this
is the first Republican state convention
to be held In 1910.
' Nation Watches Indiana;
It so happens, too, that the first con
vention Is held In a. state which is di
vided on the big question of the tar
iff, and this .makes the occasion one '
of nation-wide significance. From
Washington comes the Information -that
official eyes are all turned to- v
ward the Hoosier state.
In this connection a story Is being
told here that Is of considerable Inter
est. v Several months ago Senator Al -drich,
of Rhode Island, promised to
come to Indianapolis and deliver an
address before the Indiana Mannfac-'
turers' bureau at a banquet which was ,
to be given at the annual meeting of
the bureau. This Is an organisation
composed of several hundred of the
leading manufacturers of the state, aU v
phases of political belief being Includ
ed in the membership. Senator AV- v
drich is chairman of the National Moo-
etary Commission, which was organlx- "
ed in this city a few years ago through
the efforts of Jesse Overstreet, who
was then congressman from the Oev- ;
enth . district. . The purpose was to . :
study the - monetary systems of , the -world
and report to congress recom
