AND SUN-TELEGRAM. VOL. XXXV. NO. 330. BICnHOXD, IND., TUESDAY EVEXIXC, OCTOBER 11, 1910. SINGLE COPY 3 CENTS. BIG LABI A BATTLEGROUIID WAS HIDED BY SCRAPPY SENATOR Beveridge and Fred Landis, as Chief of Staff, Enter the Third District and Force Fighting There. DEMOCRACY FORTRESS MAY YET BE CARRIED At Meetings Held at Jefferson , ville and New Albany, Large Crowds Turned Out to Hear Beveridge. (Special Correspondent With the evsrldge Train.) New Albany, Ind., Oct. 11. Republi can la the third district are bualer than the man who turna the crank of a moving picture machine. More over they are aatlafled with the proa pacta of having their activities re warded. Wiseacres in the political game will probably scoff at the sug gestlon. but the young bloods of Clark and Floyd counties, In which are alt uated the cities of Jeffersonville and New Albany, will prove to you that they Intend to carry these two'dls tricta for the republican legislative ticket and will add to the general av- rage of the state ticket. At least they will prove to you that they think they are going to do this. You will then move around the block and meet Jim Fortune or. Adam Helmberg. and they will speedily show you without the aid of a pencil and- paper that thla republican optimism is aa tangl ble as moonshine or canned sunbeams they will produce arguments that will oonvlnce anyone, or ahould do so in their opinion, that the republicans never had any ahow to win at any time, and thla year their ahow la the poorest ever. "Look at the standpatters. they say. "Why half the republicans of this district are whetting their knives preparatory to the general massacre of the senior senator, of insurgency ad his adherents In Just a little less than a month. 'Nona of the old crowd la for Beveridge and the legislative ticket. They won't let It get by them. And see what he did In the post office fight; he appointed the wrong man, and he has no chance of getting the legislative candidate of hla own party elected here. Not a democrat la going to support Beveridge and scores of republicans are going to knife him. They Are Youngsters." : "Furthermore, the republican organ isation la green. It la composed of youngsters. They are perfectly nice fellowa but what they know about practical politics is on the wrong side of the ledger. We are going to get all the negro vote here, and that, means at least 2.500 votes. We are going to get the wet vote, and both counties are wet. Clark by about 1.000 and Floyd by 1.800. Where do the republicans get off? They don't get off! They never get on." Pretty strong argument .Call the witness for the defense, this is his story of the outlook. "The democrats are torn to pieces. The bitterness engendered by the Volgt-Cox fight for the democratic nomination for congress has never been allayed. Votgt Is a Clark coun ty democrat and his friends In Clark county are going to let Congressman Cox hoe hla own row. When Cox beat Votgt for the congressional nom ination he also put one over on Voigt la Clark county by naming the coun ty ticket This makes It unpleasant for the Voist followers to support any of the county ticket and they will either openly tight It or stay at home. The report that the republicans be ing divided Into two camps la greatly exaggerated. There are few politicians who are, disgruntled, but they do not propose to carry their dissatisfaction to tha point of fighting the ticket Some of them may sulk In their tents, but they will not tend open aid and comfort to the enemy. "These few will not bo able to con trol the rank and file of the party who ara for Beveridge and are working mors enthusiastically this year than for many yearsj Wet and Dry Fight 8o aaya the defense, for publica tion. Upon the wet and dry fight It says nothing. It is content to look wisely. But some very funny things exist which do not lend strength to tbe democratic claim of getting all (Continued on Page Two.)

Chief Engineer Vanlman, also de clared that the start of the flight across the Atlantic of the monster dir igible "America" would positively take place. A dispatch from the United States Weather Bureau at Washington promises the aviators brisk west winds for their start and added that the weather conditions would favor their flight for at least three days. The scene around the big balloon shed was a busy one all forenoon and workmen and members of the crew of the "America" were so busy putting fin ishing touches on the big craft that they refused to knock off for lunch. "There will be no trial flight nor other preparatory monkeying" said Vaniman at noon. "As soon as we get out of the hangar we will drive straight toVa." KIDS KEPT FROM SCHOOL GROUNDS Until Certsfrr Hours an cil Decides to Investi gate for Reasons. MAIN ST. WALKS ROASTED COUNCILMAN ENGLEBERT SAYS THOSE NEAR THE PARK ARE IN POOR CONDITION OTHER COUNCIL MATTERS. Why children are required to re main outside the public school yards until 8 o'clock In the morning and 1 o'clock in the afternoon la to be in vestigated by a council committee. This matter was brought before coun cil last night on complaint of a west aide woman, who aald that while the children were waiting to enter the school grounds they bothered people living in the neighborhood of the building. An unfavorable report to a proposed ordinance making a public express wagon stand on some vacant lot in the business section of the city waa aubmitted by a special committee of which Battel waa chairman. Mayor Zimmerman waa not satis fled with the report and he appointed another committee consisting of Councllmen Von' Pein and Evans to confer with the county commissioners and aak them If the court house yard could be used for this purpose. Coun cilman Bartel objected. He aald In considering the matter it was found that a public telephone would have to be Installed and a man hired to anawer the phone. Sidewalks Roasted. The sidewalks on East Main street especially at Eighteenth and Main, came in for a general knock when Councilman Englebert aald: "When people havn't got enough sense to fix their sidewalks the city ought to force them to do it We've been letting the Main street side walks go long enough, although we force other people to put In cement walks. Everybody that cornea to town goes down Main atreet and wo ahould have good sidewalks there." The Benton Heights annexation committee made a favorable report to ita annexation and the report waa adopted. Steps will bo taken to take in the addition Immediately. Ordinances appropriating 8100 for coal at the Home for the Friendless; to pay the claim of 8200 to Harry Thornburgh for injuries, and to pay the bill of Cook & Cook, attorneys in the case of Clifford vs. City of Rich mond in Greenfield. 875. and licens ing of traveling photographers, were passed. President Hammond of the board of works reported that a smoke con sumer had been ordered for the city building boiler and that If It proved a success the smoke ordinance would be rigidly enforced. THE WEATHER. STATE AND LOCAL Fair and warm er tonight and Tueeday. TOO ORDIIIAIICES WERE PASSED BY COMMON COUNCIL No Opposition Shown to the 1911 Budget Ordinance or Awning-shed Ordinance by City Fathers. CHAUTAUQUA REPORTS READ LAST EVENING Finances of Last Assembly An nounced and Council Com mittee Declares Grounds Were Not Damaged. Without opposition and by a unani mous vote of council, the budget or dinance, and the shed ordinance, per mitting permanent awnings over doorways on all thoroughfares but Main street, were passed at the meet ing of council last night. Mayor Zimmerman did not sign either of these ordinances. There is a divided opinion as to what he will do in the matter. This morning he stated: "I am going out of town today and therefore will not get to the bills. I have not said what I shall do." The awning shed ordinance was the one strongly opposed by the mayor, both on the first and second reading. This bill amends a former ordinance prohibiting' permanent awnings being placed on any street in the city passed many years ago, so that awnings may be placed over business doors on all atreeta but Main. The ordinance pro vides that no existing awnings will be effected by the amendment. Mayor Zimmerman opposed the amendment because he said perma nent sheds were detriments to fire protection. He claims that high lad ders cannot be used against buildings where there are sheds. Also Mayor Zimmerman states that If sheds are permitted on aide streets it will be impossible to keep them off Main atreet. . . ie councllmen all favor this amendment It will no doubt pass over the mayor's veto. In case he takes adverse action. The councllmen say that aheds are "cityfled" and If Rich mond wants to keep up to date she should have some permanent awn ings. . Some of . them even advocate permanent awnings on Main street. Little doubt Is expressed that the mayor win sign the budget ordinance. There are however few items, includ ing 87.500 for bridge Improvements, 83,000 for re-roofiing the city hall, and 88,000 for a new crematory, which might be cut down, some of the coun cllmen believe. No perceptible damage was reported by a committee appointed by Mayor Zimmerman to investigate alleged damage done in Glen Miller park by the Chautauqua association. This committee, consisting of Councllmen Bartel, Kauffman, Waidele and Burd sal, made the following report: A Chautauqua Report. "Tour committee appointed to re port what damage the Chautauqua as sociation has done to the part of Olen Miller park used by them as camping grounds beg leave to report aa follows: "There are some cross bars nailed to trees and some wire around some of the tree limbs. The grounds look as good aa they did before the Chau tauqua association took hold . of it. We believe the Chautauqua associa tion will erect polea (If granted per mission) to string electric wires which will do away with these objec tions. This is all the damage we could report. On the other hand some very nice steps have been erected by the Chautauqua association which are a great deal of advantage. "In connection with the report we would like to suggest that all encour agement be given other associations and organizations that are residents of this city to use this part of Glen Miller park as a camping ground and make use of It, of course with the proviso that the grounds bo put in good condition as the Chautauqua association does. "If more amusements could be at Glen Miller park we belfeve it would suit' the majority of our residents." - Thla la the second report that has resulted from the Investigation by several local organizations, asked by the Chautauqua association. The oth er report, that of the Commercial club, found no damage to the park. It waa popularly believed that the coun cil would brine in an unfavorable re port as the policy of the administra tion is in a general way adverse to the use of the Glen by any associa tion. The board of works made an Investigation and In an Informal way aald that much damage had been done, including nails in trees, ground and grass torn up and that It would take six months for the grounds to get In the condition in which they were before used by the Chautauqua asso ciation. As all other organizations which are yet to report on the matter are believed to favor the holding: of the Chautauqua assembly in. Glen Miller, (Continued on Page Two.)

FESTIVAL ASSOC, MAKES All APPEAL TO LOCAL PUBLIC - -4.-' - '-ch ?T.y To Meet Deficit, Caused by Un favorable Weather, the Peo ple Are Asked for Support, Financially. WHAT DEFICIT IS TO , AMOUNT TO, NOT KNOWN All Outstanding Bills Are Asked To Be Submitted td the Of ficials of the Association, at Once. TO THE PUBLIC. Owing to conditions over which the committee had no control a large deficit has been incurred for the FaU Festival of 1910. At a meeting of the executive commit tee October 10, 1910, It was decid ed to make this appeal for funds, publishing the names of the con tributors, as they are reported to the committee. Contributions may be handed to any member of the executive committee or to Everett R. Lemon, treasurer, at the Dickin son Trust Co. - Signed: FaU Festival Executive Committee. The foregoing appeal to the mer chants and public in general waa drafted at a meeting of the executive committee of the Fall' Festival asso ciation in its meeting on Monday eve ning at the office of Secretary W. W. Reller. The meeting was attended by all members and while nearly every thing concerning the festival was talked over, the committee was un able to reach any definite conclusion in several respects aa to Its success. That there will be a deficit has been known since early last week, when rain Interfered with the program be ing carried out until Friday. Tet just what the deficit is the committee can not tell as yet. One of the commit teemen said the association was like a bankrupt firm and had not had op portunity to discover all of its assets and liabilities. In order that the financial condition of the association may be known as soon as possible the committee desires that all bills be filed at once with the secretary or treasurer. While the lia bilities of the association are not known, because many bills are out standing, neither are the assets defin itely known for various reasons. Some of the prise winners are turning their awards back. The appeal which the committee makes to the public in general will un doubtedly be complied with by mer chants and the public generally. All recognise that it was one of the great est advertising events the city ever had. The executive committee will hold a meeting soon. It is probable that at the next meeting something more definite win be known about the iiwfffr affairs of the association.

BETTER SERVICE WANTED "Chicken coupe bottoms" and "goose egg wheels" were descriptions applied to the local street cars at the meeting of the members of the Com mercial club on Monday evening for discussion of the betterment of the street car system in Richmond.
