Gov. Goodrich Goes to Jef
fersonsville to Ascertain
As to Housing of Inmates,
May Be Able to "Get By"
Without Special Session.
Times Bureau.
At Stattb Capital.
INDIANAPOLIS. April 15. When
Governor Goodrich gets back from Jef
fersonvine. where ha went today to in
vestigate the situation at the state re
formatory, lie will mafcs known wheth
er lie 'WiU call a special session of the
1-glslature. He went to Jeffersonville
o ascertain Just how the inmates of
the reformatory could be housed until
'he next regular session of the liglsla-
.ire, or whether it would be possible to
house them that long under present con
ditions. Since flrs destroyed a number
if the important buildings at the re
formatory several months ago the
Chousing problem has been a serious one.
snd it affords perhaps the main reason
dr a special session, if one is held.
There is every indication that the
governor will call the special session.
Kiit it need causa no surprise if he
does not. It is known that very heavy
pressure is being: brought to bear on
him to avoid a srecial session at this
time, and there is a bare possibility that
:r may be made strong enough to shake
i s notion that the session must be
Soi.se persons say that It should be
fin easy matter for the governor to bor
j ow enough money from banks to tide
the state ever until the next regu'.ar
session, thus making it unnecessary to
. ali tha legislators to this city. It has
fven been suggested that the banks
r robably would step forward and of-f-r
to lend money to the governor for
that purpose, but the fact remains that
i. one of the banks have so stepped and
Cere is nothing in sight to lead to the
belief that they will do so. The gov
err or is aware that there is a possi
,,;. that he might be able to "get by"
without a special session, but he does
r.o: know whether he could or not. And
a if he should g to the banks and
borrow money to meet the pressing
r.eeds of the state, relying on the lejrir
lature to legalize his action at the next
tegular session and appropriate money
to pay 1". all back, who know3 what
kind of '.'stink" the opposition might
stir up in the next session over the
question of hts right to bind the state's
credit In that mnr.ner.
Some people are trytng to create the
impression that Governor GooJrich is
Fimpiy crazy for a r" T , session. But
those who know him best say that this
Is not true. He is not more anxious for
e special session than anyone else, but
l" will call it if he finds he can't get
iCong without it.
So one realizes bettor than the gov

complications if necessary.
One of the bugaboos that is beins
raised by some of those opposed to the
special sesslopr is the cry that the gov
ernor will dump into the hopper of the
session his celebrated excise tax bill,
which raised so much trouble at the
3917 session and was fought with such
bitterness that it failed to get by. Some
are sayir.gr that he is sure to trot it out
again. L'ut the governor has stated
def.nitely that nothing of the kind will
happen. He has said that the excise tax
proposition will not bs brought up at
tho special sesion, Lut even this state
ment has not stopped some of the ob
jectors from continuing to use it as
an argument against the issuance of a
It Is r.ot the intention of the gover
nor to present any measures to the leg
islature that will cleg up the works,
lie has outlined his program and he in
sists that he will stick to it and that
he wants the legislature also to stick to
't. There is no certainty, of course,
that the members will cor.f.na thent
Beles to the governor's program, how
ever. There is danger that some of
the statesmen will come to the city
with a aiis full of pet bills which
they will throw in in the hope that
'.hey can slop something through when
the fight is the hottest.
Leaders of both parties, however
are sayirr that thts should not be done.
A special session, they say. is not the
proper time for a general run of legisla
tion, but it should be confined to those
subjects on which legislation is need
ed to meet emergencies. If a special
cession is called the member who comes
here prepared to dump in a lot of un
necessary bills will 'immediately be

Editor T;mes:
I have just read in the edition of
The Times, dated the Sth, inst., of the
wonderful support given the Bond
Drive in the Lake county cities: of
East Chicago leading in the charge
"Over the Top." and know only too
well how Gary. Hammond and Whit
ing will respond to the call. "Let's Go."
It is surely a matter of pride for us
to be abla to point to the patriotism
of those at home, and an inspiration to
us to work the harder to bring credit
to yom
It is with much satisfaction that I
am able to assure j o l that the Gary
ami Haft Chicago 'inits -in this Divi
sion stand second to none, and that the
many bright young men from these
companies who arc scattered through
out the Division in responsible posi
tions are doing splendid work.
When I read of Ilamipond'a magnif
icent enterprise in building Liberty
Hall. I mentally picture thtt gallant
old patriot. Have Boone, delivering one
of his stirring speeches therein, to an
appreciative audience, and a touch of
homesickness comes over me.
I em proud that I am from Laka
county, ar.d The Times, which is mailed
me regularly, is a welcome visitor and
a comfort to me. Have r.o misgivings
as to how your representatives In the
service will fight as long as they ha-e
