COMMITTEE DRUNK.
I Charge Made to Show How a Rail:
road Company Beat the State
INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 13.?William
j A. Ketchum, former attorney general
Indiana and as such employed to
try -to force the Vandalia Railroad
| Company to pay to the State the sum
i ^iC^$S$00.000, filed a complaint against
p the company, alleging that the State
had been prevented in the past from
jiTnrestisatlng and enforcing its claim
N. because of the corruption of its
'jr&Sfaot& by the company.
case was in the courts several
months ago, and the Supreme Court
found in favor of the State and fixed
0|?if??tklie amount as approximately $1,000.?00.
The company appealed to the
;X:United States- Supreme Court, and
- v.ttet tribunal reversed the judgment
3 <m the ground that the State had slept
on lis rights and had delayed too Ion?
; in the attempt to enforce its claim
~ The case was sent back to the State
| courts with instructions to And foi
, ;:the railroad company, but Ketchuir
secured permission to file anothei
anft showing why the claim had not
been -prosecuted.
This complaint charges that whet
the legislature sent its committee tc
investigate the books of the company
to discover the amount of indebted'
ness under its special charter, the
members of the committee got free
transportation and hotel expenses and
that their duties were usurped by the
officers of the "company. The members
of the committee were made
drunk, he says, in order to prevent
xfce Investigation.
It is also charged that members of
certain committees were bought outright
and that, as it was through the
company's frauds upon the State that
investigation was delayed from time
to time, the company cannot in
equity claim exemption because of
the lapses of time.
Evidence will be taken under the
complaint, and members of the legislative
committees who were charged
with selling out to the company will

Dispatch.
i- Donbt no longer exists that Secretary
Taft is in training for the Pres=
idential nomination lour years hence.
Ohio is expected to supply another
e Republican candidate as the Chief
Executive of the United States. A
s noticeable coldness between Senator
Eoraker and the friends of the young
Secretary has already manifested it1
self. Mr. Foraker has been content
to wait, confident that his opportunis
ty would come in 1508; but the appearance
of his fellow townsman has
"* been an unexpected blow. Senator
Fairbanks does not view with any
s greater complacency the sudden ascendency
of Secretary Taft. and a
combination between all the anti-Taft
e Republicans in his favor is the hope
of the Vice-Presidentelect.
r The campaign of 190S for the Republican
nomination has practically
' begun. A few weeks after Christmas
an informal organization will be effected.
A "bureau of education"
will begin work and the availability
of Judge Taft for a seat on the Supreme
Bench, where he will be shelved.
will be constantly set forth. It
c is generally understood at Washing=
ton rhat the President is willing
Secretary Taft should have the next
> vacancy on the Supreme bench, but
that the Ohio man will not consider
any post short of the Chief Justice>
ship. Mr. Knller does not attain the
age of enforced retirement for seven
- years; waiting for a dead man's shoes
is not acceptable to the Secretary of
War.

will be shown after March
4. Secretary Hay is believed to be
the Roosevelt selection. Although
the resignations of all the members
of the cabinet will be placed in the
President's hands. John Hay will he
asked to stay. How Ions he will consent
to remain will depend upon the
effect of persuasion upon him. Mr.
Play is not ambitions for the Presidency.
He has attained a place in
contemporaneous history almost
equal to that of any President since
Lincoln. General regret will be felt ]
among many personal admirers of J
Senator Foraker in both parties that
he is to be forced ont of the running.
He is a strong man and has proved
the stanch -friend of our new colo- i
