DODGE PICNIC WILL
BEAT SPRIWGBROQK
Aug. 9 Selected as Date for
Big Outing Many Attrac
tions Arranged For.
The seventh annual outinp of the
employes of the Iodo Mftf. Co., which
includes those connected with the In
destrueto factory in th cat end, will
be held at Sprinprbrook park August 9.
The decision to meet again at this
popular resort was brought about by
the. refusal of the steam roads to grant
special rates to neighboring localities.
The sentiment of the committee was
In favor of another trip to Michigan
City, but when the Lake Shorn quoted
a rate of $1.S0 to that place and re
turn as against 50c charged two years
ago It became apparent that such an
excursion was out of the question.
Negotiations were also made with
the Interurban lines. The Northern
Indiana quoted a rate of 8 5c, but in
vestigation developed that they could
handle only 50U- people such a long
distance, making necessary the trans
fer of about 1500 to the South Shoro
lines at South Bend with a wild
scramble for seats possible. These
peoplo would also have to walk from
Tenth street in Michigan City to the
park or pay extra car care.
The Springbrook outing was such a.
success that there was very little ob
jection, if aru', to going there again.
Manager Daly has assured the outing
committee that he will do all in his
power to make the day an even great
er success than that of 1912. There
will ba a number of outside attractions
and a repetition of a number of fea
tures of the 1912 program which
made such a hit.

LKTTEUS OF THE FF.OPLE.
To pditor of the South Ilecd News-Tinr-s:
Considerable comment and iwnw contro
versy prevails In Mishawaka over tbe ac
tion cf t!ie Kev. Loren M. Edwards taken
m Sunday, the t'.th. And wmo comment
of coi.siderabie controversy over tbe atti
tude of tbe Chief of Police lrick toward
tbe clcing of iiilvoud uu Sunday, as pre
t.cxlU'i by law.
I should like to ask Iter. Edwards if
Mica treatment of the liquor problem by
tMs td:iiiultration was not exported by
him? If int. surely he is purblind to the
paths of history and has be.a asleep to
real conditions la our midst.
How could La or anyone expect tbe re
tall liiuor uyau to obey tbe h.w, after our
p reiser. t administration incread the liq
uor license su high that saloon men can
nut obey the law of the land and the
first law of nature, namely, self preserva
tion. You cannot tax people prosperous.
-Nor will a heavy tax destroy the taxed
without a struggle on the part of the tax
ee. I am not in sympathy with those who
disobey law. Hut reason must be exercis
ed at all times and on all occasions, and
the li iuor question is not an exception to
the rule. If the liquor bus .ness Is the
rout f all evil, as many itoonle believe.
why r.ct dig down to the root and destroy
the foundation? Uy so doing you destroy
all tho hrauches therewith.
Uy hih livense and. keen competition
you place a premium on law evasion,
thru necessity and not by rboice. Thru
h-alooL limitation you destroy the finan
cially weak, and fatten the stixng. By lo
cal option you rob Peter to pay Paul.
1'ermlt your ni.iids to reflect a little, and
you will recall that the prohibition party
stands for the abolition' of the liquor bus
iness. How many Mishawaka ministers
vote the prohibition ticket? Stand up
now end be counted. ad to note, but too
true it is, there was not as many votes
cast in St. Joseph county it supjort of
that iirty as there are ministers in the
county. If the ministers will work half so
hard endemoring to establish a sysrem
of government and social justie where
men can profit by honesty, rather than
disnonesty, then you will be doing some
thing worth while.
Kev. Kdwards seems extremely in fav
or of a "good" citizens,' ticket. If we could
ngrev as to the qualifications of a "good
citizen" we micht loin with Doctor Ed
wards our support. l)oes he call a "good
citizen" one who is a goi church mem
ber, contributing freely and attending ser
vices regularly?
He was liberally applaudel when he
sueested a gxd citizens' ri?ket. Every
lame duck that has been driven from of
fice, including those that are to leave of
fice but who li-ive known no independence
in politics while the party to which Bro
ther Edwards belongs was hogging it at
the trough, was loud in their applause for
independence. The Ix-ttcr chiss of "good
citizen" is usually one that suffers with
lack of backbone, and Is an adept pussy
footer. (Jet rid of the sly-smiling, weasled-eyed,
mush-mouth, hand-grasping, office hun
gry ana nungry-eenoincr yeirers that are
soft-f-K)ting it (behind the fearless minis
ter and under the cloak of religion') and
wholly bent on "copping off" the liquor
vote in order to reinstate "has-wuzzers"
and s.lf -constituted custodians of the
public welfare and public morals. In
their place install men who knov riprht
from wrong, and who with tie revolution
ary spirit will continually and consistent
ly fight all wrongs even though such men
be in the minority.

Main St., cornered the thief in a barn
at the rear of a N. Clark st. residence
and stood guard until Detective
Wooley arrived on the scene.
Entering the barn with leveled re
volver, Officer Wooley captured the
culprit, who proved to be Curtis Ben
nett of 315 Fifth St., Goshen. Ben
nett had attempted to borrow money
on a watch stolen from Mr. Hazel,

description sent here. Mr. Rahn was
alone at the time, but "dickered"

partner, then going into another
lice, telephoned the police.
Bennett became suspicious at
long delay, and after demanding
return of the watch, which was
of-
the
the
re-
fused, he left hurriedly. He passed
Officers Wooley and Little on the
stairway, meeting them as they came
up, and he was downstairs and around
the corner before the officers learned
that he was the man. During the
seven blocks' chase which followed,
leading through alleys and along the
right of way of the Elkhart & West
ern, Officer Wooley fired two shots
at Bennett, nelthex taking effect. Up

GOOD ROADS BOOSTERS
AFTER BETTER ROADWAY
Good roads boosters in Elkhart and
Goshen on Thursday began the cir
culation of petitions as the first step
in the renewal of an agitation for an
"all west side and no railroad cross
ing" graveled road b. twe.n the two
cities.
According to the plan, enough now
road wfll be opened along the line of
the S. Main st. extension, now open
nearly a mile and a half beyond tho
city limits, to make it possible to
travel by horse-drawn vehicles or auto
Irom one city to the other without
crossing the tracks of either the Lake
Shore, the liig Four or the Northern
Indiana railways.
This will require the building of
about four miles of new road, but
will eliminate the necessity of twico
crossing the three railroads, six tracks
in all, as is the case at present.
