A CHANCE TO TELL IT Ijawyer tVho Said He Hatl Secret Locked in His Breast May Tell "Wliat He Knows. It Is Also Desired That an Editor Who "Made Strange Statement Shall Testify Bedford, Ind., June 1. Judge Wilson is determined that if anyone knows anything of the murder of Sarah C. Schafer last January, he shall have a chance to tell it. The grand jury has begun the work of running down every possible clue. Judge Palmer, who made the startling statement in the trial of James McDonald that he had the secret of the murder locked in his breast, was appointed a deputy prose cutor to assist in the investigation. There is a general desire on the part of Bedford citizens that the editors and publishers of the Brazil Democrat be summoned to appear before the jury and give information which they appear to have in their possession. The Democrat recently published an editorial bearing on the Schafer case that is considered of more than ordi nary significance. It intimated that Miss Eva Love, a roommate of Miss Schafer, delivered a sealed letter to Miss Schafer on the eve of Miss Love's departure for Seymour, two days bo fore the tragedy, with instructions that it "be opened only in case something happened to the writer." The officials are determined to give the author of the editorial in the Bra zil paper opportunity to plan all the facts he knows before the grand jury. WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN Summary for Indiana for the Week Ending Monday, May 30. Indianapolis, June 1. During the first part of last week the tempera ture ranged from to 11 degrees above normal, but during the last half It was slightly lower than the sea sonal average. Rain fell Thursday and again Sun day, the effects were generally bene ficial. In some localities in the north ern section, however, where the ground was already moist from previous rains, corn planting was stopped. It is estimated that three-fourths of the corn crop has been planted. The early planted is coming up, and in a few places in the south section first cultivation Is under way, but generally the failure of seed to. germinate and the ravages of cut worms are causing much replanting. The condition of wheat improved, but the acreage has been considerably reduced and the prospects indicate an average yield of not more than a half crop from the present acreage. Oats, young clover, timothy and pas tures are late, but healthy and grow ing. Old clover does not promise much hay. All kinds of fruit except peaches and cherries promise good crops. Tobacco plants are ready to set out, but the acreage will be small. Toma toes are being transplanted. A Jasper county correspondent re ports an onion acreage reduced and the acreage of cucumbers for pickling increased. Potatoes, melons and other minor crops are doing well. Killed in Drunken Quarrel. Anderson, Ind., June 1. Hiram Stealey, ago i forty years, was struck in the back of the head at Chesterfield, six miles east of here, and instantly killed. Clay Dusang, aged twenty-six years, a son of a prominent Union township farmer, is in jail charged with the crime. It is probable that other arrests will be made in the case. The killing is said to be the outcome of a drunken quarrel. Stabbed to the Heart. New Albany, Ind., June 1. In a drunken brawl at the French Creek schoolhouse, three miles west of here, Lawrence Hubler killed Nelson Jordon by stabbing him in the heart Both men are about twenty-one years old and are sons of farmers in the neigh borhood.

Byron Robin son, engineer of the train, did not see the young men in time to stop. Prominent Manufacturer Disappears. Logansport, Ind., June 1.

Mr. Aman went to the Wstside Satur day to transact some uusiness and has not been seen since. Evansville, Ind., June 1. R. A.

COTTON'S WORK He Has Demonstrated His Efficiency es Superintendent cf Public Instruction. ' ' State Superintendent Fassett A. Cot ton is well and favorably known to the educational people of the state, and has b.o a wICo acTJi-tmca with the pnoral( p'.'.tlic. Mr. Coon is still a j jj-; K:ni. lie was Lorn ia Johmon county and received his early training: i.i o-y or tl-.e rst township graded schools established in the state. He ir.'ht in. tho schools of Henry county and sport several terms in the State Normal School. He wa3 elected Coun ty Superintendent of Henry county FAbSETT A. COTTON. and was regared as one of the most progressive superintendents in the state. He was Deputy State Super intendent for six years, four years un der David M. Gecting and two under Frank L. Jones. He gave up thi3 oflce to do some work which he had long contemplated. He entered Butler col lege and took his bachelor's degree. Then he went at once to the Univer sity of Chicago and took his master's degree. Daring these years he placed spec'al stres3 upon educational prob lems, and his wide experience in school work made this study very profitable. As a resuit Lit came to the office in March. ID'jJ, admirably equipped to direct the educational work of the state. He set for himself a high standard of excellence and mapped out the work he hoped to ac complish. Mindful of the great ad vance tnat had been made by his pre decessors, he proposed to do his work so well that at the end of his term he would leave the educational affairs of Indiana not only as good as he found them, but better. So far he has made good what he proposed to do He is interested in every phase of education. He proposes that every boy and girl in the state shall have a chance at education and that city, town and country chlildren shall have equal opportunity. He proposes that the profession of teaching shall be put upon a . higher plane. He has done everything possible to have the state creditably represented at the St. Louis fair, and it is believed that visitors will find a splendid exhibit. Mr. Cotton is a man of tireless en ergy and has led a strenuous life dur ing his present term. He knows the needs of the state and he knows how to do things. With all this the best thing that can be said of Mr. Cotton is that he is genuine. Those who know him recognize in him a man to whom educational interests in Indiana can safely be trusted. A State of Opportunity. Bjr so much, therefore, must our ad miration be greater for the great Mid dle Western States Indiana, for ex ample which have built up success ful public school systems for their whole rural population. In Indiana, as in most of the adjacent States, a boy or a girl may attend a public school from the beginning of school life till the completibn of a college course without expense for tuition. Some schools are bad, some good, some bet ter . As Miss Shaw points out in her article on Indiana the excellence of the school depends on the teachers. But the great fact stands out and a parallel can be found in the rural parts of no other country that a well developed and intelligently conducted public school system exists there; and it is complete. An Indiana lad may become a scholar in literature or in science, or he may become a master of agriculture or of mechanics he may be trained for any pursuit prac tically free of cost for tuition; and a school, during his earlier life, is near enough his own home to be easily ac cessible. World's Work. Wall Street In Control Again. Bryan has steadfastly opposed the domination of the Democratic party by the Wall street clique. He is not now advocating the nomination of any particular candidate for president, but most of his followers are supporting W. R. Hearst. It is not hard to see that Bryan and his crowd are going to lose out, and that the St. Louis convention will nominate some one entirely satisfactory to the Wall street politicians who were in control when Cleveland was president. The contest from now on will not be between Bry an, and the so-called reorganizes, for Bryan, it seems, is already defeated. The contest will be between the Tam many and the anti-Tammany Demo crats of Now York. If the anti-Tam-rsany crowd wins Parker is the man picked At this time. If the Tammany crowd wins McClellan it is believed will be the man. In any event Wall street will resume control of the Dem ocratic party and again direct its pol icies.
