DAILY KHTABMRHWi- i7 NEFARIOUS SCHEME NIPPED IN THE BUD BY THE STATE REPUBLICAN COM MITTEE BUYING VOTERS OFF Democrats of Alexandria Are "Blow- edM On by Some of the People i Invited. AT TWO DOLLARS APIECE Seems to Be the Standard Price The Colored Man is Very Much Sought After. To lef cat what 'is is suspected to lie a general plan of the . Democrats in Indiana to prevent the negro' from voting this fall, the) Republican State committee Saturday sent out a let ter of warning to Republican county chairmen notifying them of the fact that in some counties it has been dis. coveml Democrats are taking re ceipts from negroes and already pay ing them money, the agreement be ing that the person signing the re ceipt shall vote the entire Demo cratic ticket this fall, -.but the inten tion being to u,se the receipts to dis franchise the , negro or frighten him away from the pojls on election day. The letter of the Stats committee is based on affidavits 'received from Alexandria, in which Mayor James H. Edwards is charged in some' cases with paying $2 for a signature to the receipts and in others with asking colored men to sign, the receipts. Vote Buying Not a Crime. It is not a crime in Indiana to buy a vote, although it is a crime to sell a vote. The result of this law is that the men that buy votes arc able to put. under their power the num. who sell them. In Greene county, two years ago, fifty men were disfranchised by a process similar to that alleged to have 'been pursued in Alexandria. They sold their votes and signed re ceipts and this year it is said that the receipts are still being held over their heads. Tn Morgan county and in Spencer county more than fifty men are disfranchised because of the signing of receipts two' years ago, and in several other counties the re ceipt scheme,, was worked effectively. It is said that thirty negroes of Alexandria have already received money and signed the receipts and they are now greatly stirred np be cause they have discovered that their net will -probably keep them from voting this year and perhaps for sev eral years to come, if the men have them disfranchised. If the matter is not taken into the courts, the signed receipts can still be used with much effect in a threat that prosecu tions will follow if the men that signed them attempt to vote. . It is raid that the Alexandria negroes, Much wrought up, are offering to pay the money back and are demanding the receipts. Form of Printed Receipts. Printed, receipts are being used in j Madison county. The form, as re-jj ceived by the Republican State com-! nut tee, is as t allows : "I " - a qualified voter in . - precinct, in township, Madison -county, Indiana, at the gen eral election to be held in said coun ty and State on Tuesday, the Sth day of November, 1904, do hereby offer to sell and do hereby sell my vote for nil the Democratic candidates for offices in said county, at said elec tion for the sum of , to me in hand paid, the receipt whereof i hereby acknowledged.- and .hr con sideration of said sum I do hereby vContinued on eighth page.) EXODUS SOUTH Many Richmond People Will Spend Richmond Away From Home. With the approach of colder weath. er and prospects for a long and cold winter before them Richmond people are preparing to spend the winter in t ho south and west. There are several families in the city who go south every year with the approach of win ter and then return in the spring, while many others are making prep arations to go this season for the first time.

AGRICULTURAL COURSE TO BE INTRODUCED IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THE SUPERINTENDENT COTTON Intends To Have Children Learn More About the Farm. The state superintendent, of public instruction is trying to make the schools more helpful to the country by the introduction of a course in the principles of agriculture for use in the district and township, high schools. The education of the coun try boy and girl has been' away from the farm and toward the fac tory and the city. "The study of history and biography has created ideals of greatness that find their ex pression'in city life. The result has been a continual and constantly increasing exodus of the most thoughtful and enterprising young men and young women of our dis trict schools to the city. The intro duction of agriculture proposes to nake tlu farm the center of interest and to make all its industries, its economies-and its science the subject of thought and study." Superintend ent Cotton says that while it isjiot the province of the schools to teach the. trades, it is their privileges and duty to put the child.; in intelligent touch with the life about him. He says that it is not only-legitimate but the very best pedagogy to use all the roeans at hand in educating the chil dren. While the school can not offer a complete course in agriculture. they can offer cough to show the chil- i j un-ii uie wwue oi unuwieugi- .L me composition of the soil, of tillge, of j drainage, of irrigation, of selecting seed, of planting, etc., enough to in terest them later in a broader education- in agricultural high school or college.

SOME INDIAN MOUNDS VISITED RELICS VISITED BY THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS MOUNDS ERECTED AGES AGO It is Presumed That They Were Built by Either Aztecs or Southern Indians. Last week the junior modern his tory class of the high school was taken out by Professor Walter Davis to Ballinger's Springs, three miles east of town, to see the Indian mound, which is located near ithe springs and also to inspect the two mounds on the Commons farm near by. The students were greatly inter ested in these mounds which were erected many hundreds of years ago by a strange race of men. About fifteen years ago these mounds of earth were opened and old war axes, brass beads and skele tons were taken out. The bones of these prehistoric men and women crumbled to ashes when exposed to the air. It is the supposition of Professor Davis that the mounds were built for either forts or places to bury the dead, probably the latter supposition being the correct one. Hie race that built them he thinks were either southern Indians or the Aztecs of Mexico who were after wards driven south or southwest by the more fierce and warlike northern ijlbes. V i It is also not generally known that not more than seventy five years ago there was an Indian settlement, near the springs, the col ony numbering over five hundred men, women and children. The gov ernment took their lands froni them and they were deported to the Indian lands in the northwest.. These In dians are believed to have been eith er Shawnees or Miamis.
