Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 25.—While
the election is several weeks away it
is possible to draw some conclusions
as to the situation in Indiana from re

One conclusion seems pretty safe
and that is that the amalgamation of
the republicans and progressives is a
thing completed. It Is admitted by

who came from the republican party

New York, Sept. 25. —Elimination

ed by the commission on revision of

mitted to the triennial convention of
the Protestant Episcopal church at St.
Louis next month.
The commission argues that "con

night on a warrant charging him with

McDaniel, on the night of July 15, ac
cording to Bart M. Lockwood, special
McDaniel's arrest brought to a head
investigations of many weeks' dura
tion. The murder with which he Is
charged greatly stirred the city, as
Mrs. McDaniel came from a well
known family and was prominent so
cially. She was 35 years old and the
mother of three children.
In outlining the state's case Mr.
Lockwood declared that strained do
mestic relations and an alleged quar
rel resulting from accusations by Mrs.
McDaniel would be the line of argu
ment of the state as contributory con
ditions for the murder.
The special prosecutor asserted his
ability to prove that the telephone call
which McDaniel said caused his ab
sence from home during the time the
murder was committed was an inven
tion and part of a plan to conceal the
crime. It will also be charged that the
shots McDaniel claims he exchanged
with the murderers on his arrival
home that night were in reality fired
by himself, according to Lockwood.
Following his arrest, the only state
ment McDaniel would make was a de
nial that he was guilty.

McDaniel, who is prosecuting attor
ney of this county, said today he would

said, "and I have never denied any
body an early trial."
