TO INDORSE TARIFF Wakes Public Letter Received by Him from a Gibson Coun ty Politician, Supporting Proposed Plan. Indianapolis, Ind., June 2S. Former Chairman Charles S. Hernly, of New Castle, says that ho is going ahead with arrangements for a second Repub lican State Convention, and that he ia receiving encouragement from many Republicans who declare that they want a chance to express their approv al of the Taft Administration and the old-fashioned Ideals of the party. An ex-Chairman of the Gibson Coun ty Republicans has written Hernly ask ing about his program. "I see." said be, "that you are re potted as saying there would be anoth er Republican convention this year, not to name candidates for state of fices, but to give Republicans a chance to express their feelings over present conditions.

Hernly made the following reply: "ine itepunucan party loaay is a Det- . ter party than it ever was, and we have the best tariff law the country ever had.

Harold, the eleven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Fennimore, is fond of music and he has trained a hen to sing. He calls her "Singing Peggy,1 and when be says, "Sing, Peggy." there is no hesitation on her part, for the song is started and If It be in too low a key, her master informs her that it must be in a higher key, which she immediately chang es from the lower to the higher without the least trouble or embarrassment. diana in stemming the tide of Social ism and insurgency that is now abroad in the country. The Noise from Iowa. "This noise that comes from Iowa, created and led by Senator Cummings, sounds to me a great deal like the noise made by General Weaver way back in the seventies, when he led thej Greenbackers in a great assault upon the Republican party. It caused us a lot of trouble at the time, and Weaver was elected Governor of Iowa on that issue. But the grand old party wore them all out and still lived. "These insurgent Senators in Wash ington are treating the Republican party much like Mr. Bryan has treated the Democratic party, and they will all be defeated sooner or later and the Republican party will still live. "The Republican party has always : had a great struggle on hand .wheniti undertook to pass a revenue law of any description, and so will any poli tical party ever have to struggle to raise funds to carry on expenses of government. The cry of the dema gogue is as old as time itself, and there are always plenty of demogogues ready to grab at every drifting straw of seeming popularity wanting to ride to glory at the expense of their fellow-men, but they will not last long. "This hue and cry of insurgency that is now abroad in the land will be shorter lived than many that have gone before, because it is based upon no principle whatever, and is only used temporarily by a few fellows who want to stray into power by riding on this very fragile tidal wave."

ROOSEVELT While British Garrison Rested Under Arms Today, Assas sin of Premier Was Execu ted at Early Hour. FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO USE "BIG STICK" Recalls Sensation Created by Roosevelt When in Cairo He Denounced the Assassina tion of Premier. Cairo, Egypt, June 28. With the British garrison under arms to pre vent any outbreak on the part of the Nationalists, the student Wardani who assassinated the Egyptian premier, Boutros Pasha last February, was se cretly executed before dawn today for his crime. It was the policy of assassi nation as typified by Wardani's act that Roosevelt denounced in his speech while here, and it was because of the fact that this policy was not more sternly repressed that he deliver ed his famous Guild Hall speech in London telling England to use the big stick, rule better in Egypt, or get out. Wardani shot Boutros Pasha, the Egyptian premier and minister of for eign affairs on February 20, and the premier died a few days later. The assassin proclaimed himself a Nation alist and said that his motive was a desire to avenge various acts of the government which his party declared to have been brought about solely by the premier. Wardani was tried and found guilty and condemned to death on May 13. An appeal was taken to the court of cessation but this was dis missed on June 11, leaving his only hope that of an appeal to the khedive. This was rejected. Caused Big Uproar. A great uproar was caused here on March 28th when Colonel Roosevelt took advantage of the opportunity of fered him to make a speech before the University of Egypt to condemn the assassination of Boutros Pasha, de claring it a greater calamity to Egypt than a wrong to the individual himself and that those apologyzing for or con doning the act directly or indirectly stood on the pinnacle of evil and in famy. A demonstration was made against the distinguished visitor by a mob of Nationalists following his speech, but the ex-president absolutely disregarded this and made an attack on the. Nation alists' plea for self government. That the government regards the ex ecution of Wardani as a possible incen tive for another outbreak was made apparent by the precautions taken to keep the date and place secret. Before Cairo was awake this morning he was taken from his cell and executed. HE PLEADED GUILTY Indianapolis, June 2S William Swormsted, former cashier of the Cit izens National bank of Evansville, was arrested today, charged with vio lating the federal banking laws. He pleaded guilty. , He is a nephew of Captain Gillett, former president of the same bank, who .was arraigned today, but pleaded not guilty. Sworm sted's sentence was deferred. THE WEATHER.

' ; t' T Wayne County 's Purse Growing Fatter: Big Increase is Shown With the completion of the assessment for 1910 of railroad, tele phone, telegraph and other like corporations by the state board of tax ation, Wayne county's grand total valuation of taxables will be approxi mately $32,000,000. An- abstract of the taxable property in the county, excluding that possessed by corporations of the above character, has been completed in the office of County Auditor D. S. Coe, and shows a gain of $981,360 over the report of 1909. The abstract is a compilation of assessment returns as made to the county auditor by the township assessors of the county, and from the assessments made by the board of review. It will be " forwarded to the state auditor in a few days and placed on file for review and reference. Gains in the value of lands and lots, likewise in the improvements of the same, and an increased amount added in personal property in nearly every township in the county, is responsible for the splendid gain which' the county made in the year. Last year the auditor's abstract showed the total amount to be $2S,973,530 for the county while this year's report " gives the total at $29,850,890. One of the most noticeable gains, indicated by comparison-of the two reports, is in this city. In 1909 the total valu ation of" property here, as shown by the auditor's abstract, was $13,849, w 250, while this year the total amount is $14,292,730, exclusive of the valu- ation of property of the corporations which the state board assesses.

The different lodges of Odd Fellows which own stock in the Odd Fellows' building, southwest corner of Eighth and Main Streets, one of the finest business blocks in the city, have been asked to consider the proposition o the sale of their stock. Whitewater lodge, which owns 94S of , the 1,000 shares, has voted to consider an offer of $0O per share, the par value being $25. Richmond lodge met last evening and, although the proposition was sub mitted, no action was taken, Wood ard lodge, Herman lodge and Oriental Encampment, have not yet acted on the matter. The identity of the would-be pur chaser is being kept secret and not even the lodge members know who it is that has made the proposition. The deal if made will be engineered by a real estate agent. It has been intimat ed that the man who is back of the plan has $35,000 or $40,000 which he wishes to invest in Main 6treet real estate and, if successful in securing an option on the Odd Fellow building, will organize a stock company with sufficient capital to purchase the build ing outright. Below a Former Price. Should each lodge offer to sell its holdings at the figure which Whitewa ter lodge demands for its stock, th -3 building can be purchased for $96,000. On previous occasions when offers have been made for the building, $loO, 000 has been the value at which it has been held. Several years ago spme parties made en effort to acquire control of the I.
