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
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.

MR. COTTON'S WORK
He Has Demonstrated His Efficiency

educational people of the state, and

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. Seymour Republican.
