lAPOETE'S FEMALE FRANKENSTEIN.
When one looks around him and sees the beautiful things of this earth;
; hears the glad voice of nature, comes In contact with the highest forms of
; civilization, such as the fine arts, music and books, It is Impossible to realize
that there has lived, we might say, at our very doors a woman, a creature
fashioned after the likeness of the Almighty, who was so shapen in sin and
Iniquity as to be guilty of the most horrible murders such as have been given
Tip by tha earth in LaPorte. That the city itself, one of the most beautiful
places in one of the grandest commonwealths In the greatest country in the
world should have housed such a hellish harpy, seems in Itself incredible. That
twelve human beings should have lost their lives inv Jie dwelling of such a
fernine vampire as the Gunness creature has proven to be, passes all under
Btanding. All the horrors of the dark ages cannot equal those yawning manure
covered "soft spots" giving up their rotting burdens of dismembered trunks,
mutilated limbs and boggart corpses. To think that strong men In their
prime and tender children alike, should have been sent Into eternity either
by a woman or with her knowledge is a horror from the pit of Acheron and
the realms of Pluto, and every good citizen of Indiana will praj that the
mystery may be solved by the LaPorte county authorities.
BOTH PARTIES IN THE SADDLE.
Now that the democratic county convention is over, the political sky is
decidedly clearer than it was a week ago. The groping In the darkness is
over. Lake county republicans, who were under the strain awaiting the out
come of the Gary convention, feel relieved to find the enemy in the open and
glad to find the election some months off, long enough to rally their forces
which were shaken up somewhat on account of the ominous sounds that were
emanating from the Garmy ambush now and then.
Lake county democrats are riding on the top wave, however, at present
owing to their stampede of Gary, Lake county's political battle-ground and
elded by the Industrial depression- in the northern part of the county, they
consider this a year for democratic victory.
The republican and democratic parties are at present in a state of mazy
action and .reaction, and as spring grows into summer nd summer into fall,
action on the one hand, and reaction In which the democrats are now triumph
ing, will resolve themselves into the same cycle of reaction and action, punct
uated by political" Impulse, regulated, however, In a great measure by the laws
of political economy, and continuing so in that round until election day, when
according to the present outlook the party that rides on the top wave will
sweep the county.
Taking the present perspective not forgetting a few glimpses into the
past when the campaign was in its infancy, the question that seems most
logical now is: "Which of the two parties can regulate its activities so as
to count on the phychological moment on that great day in November?
That is, from the best view point at present, the situation as regards the
county tickets in general, not forgetting the possibilities that are ever coupled
wlth them owing to the national election drawing near.
But there are a few men on both tickets, whom the fate of the whole
ticket will seemingly not effect, and there are democratic and republican
candidates both whose election at this time seems almost assured.

The Right .Honorable Archibald
Philip Primrose, Earl of Roseberry and

of the late Archibald Lord Dalmeny.
He received his education at Eton and
Christ Church college, Oxford, and suc
ceeded to his title -In 1868. He first
spoke in public in the house of lords
in 1871. when at the opening of parlia
ment he was selected by Mr. Gladstone
then prime minister, to second an ad
dress in reply to a speech from the
throne. This he did with great tact,
and evoked from Mr. Gladstone -a ref
erence to his extrordlnary promise. In
1874 Lord Roseberry was elected lord
record of Aberdeen university, and in
1880 lord rector of Edinburgh. In 1881
he was appointed under secretary of
state for the home department, and in
1886, in Mr. Gladstone's next govern
ment, was appointed secretary of state
for foreign affairs. Early In his ca
reer he said he had three ambitions
in life: To win the Derby, to marry
the richest heiress in England, and to
become prime minister. His ambitions
were fulfilled. In 1878 he married the
daughter of the great banker, Baron

E. H. Gary Sees the Bright Side of the
Business Depression and Says Signs
Portend Retur n of Activity.
Judge E. H. Gary, formerly of Chi
cago, after whom Gary was named,
and now chairman of the board of di
rectors of the United States Steel cor
poration, the largest business organi
zation that was ever formed in human
history, is a thorough optimist con
cerning the financial and industrial fu
ture. He believes that conditions in
the business world are already normal,
with a few scattered exceptions, and
that these weak places will be
strengthened by natural causes very
Judge Gary does not expect a boom;
he does not anticipate so active and
prosperous a year as 1906 or the first
eight months of 1907, but he believes
that the business Interests of the coun
try are rapidly settling down into
healthy, wholesome conditions that
prices will be maintained and wages
will be continued, and that the de
mands for all products, both of the soil
and the factories, will afford a reason
able profit to all concerned In the pro
duction. There has been no period in
the history of the country or In the
history of the world when the financial,
commercial, industrial and transpor
tation interests were in such an en
couraging condition, and, although the
freight traffic has fallen off and a
great many cars and locomotives are
idle. Judge Gary says that a compari
son between the volume of business
handled today and that of five or three
years ago will show that the move
ment of commerce Is natural and en
couraging. There has been a consid
erable falling off from the enormous
traffic of 1907, but that was unreason
ably large, and 1908 will compare fa
vorably with any other year.
The prices of stocks are gradually
advancing, which shows that the con

Louisville, Ky., May 7. The fifth trl

of Colonial Wars will be In session here
during the remainder of this week,
with headquarters at the Hotel Seel

from various points throughout the
country. Tonight there is to be a re

other visitors. r Other entertainment
features will be lunches, automobile

wholesale trade in all lines of mer

stores is as large as it ever was ex

and the army of unemployed Is being
gradually reduced in numbers, because
nearly all the factories are now run

the demand for every form of manu
factured goods is becoming healthful

on their regular routes and they are

most cases, showing that normal con

Large enterprises t which were aban
doned or postponed are being taken
up again and are likely to be carried
out as originally proposed. Several
large loans have been recently nego
tiated on ordinary terms by corpora
tions, and the money will be expended
in the employment of labor and the
purchase of materials. All signs point
to a complete restoration of activity
and confidence, and Judge Gary is con

will be as prosperous to everybody as
could be expected in a presidential

"For the near future much depends
upon the platforms and the nominees
of the conventions to be held by the
two great political parties during the
early summer of 1908. If platforms
