ter Iiev. Mr. Edwards is said to have
remarked, in testifying of conditions
on the Sunday following this notifi
cation, that tho city was never tight
er than it was this .Sunday.
Mrs. deKyckc on Stand.
Mrs. Joseph ueltycke was the first
witnes3 called Friday afternoon. She
admitted the authorship of a letter
printed in tho Tribune but said that
eho was merely expressing her opin
ion and swore that she knew noth
ing of bribery or corruption on tho
part of city officials. Telling of her
investigation, Mrs. 3eKycko stated
that ehe started out to Bee if the sa

he only got a-s far as one saloon
which, .hc said, to all outward ap
pearances was closed. Two men at
this saloon trying to get in wero
unable to do so. The woman told
of having Been several drunks on the
street but did not know where they
came from. This was at 6 o'clock in
the evening and when Atty. Drum
mond inquired if the men might not
be returning from a day's carousing
at tome nearby city, tho witness could
not say. She said the men were
cither Italian or Hungarian.
Wlwt Is "Smoky How?"
Joseph Tascher, who was next call
ed, tolcf of several trips up and down
the alley in the rear of "Smoky Row."
Tascher, remarked of Atty. Drummond
that lie didn't know Drummond lived
out of the state when the latter asked
him 'what this "Smoky Kow" was.
In regard to liquor law violation
Tascher said he saw several men go
ing in and out of tho yard in the rear
of the Smoky Kow ealoons when on
a trip up this alley with Dr. Edwards.
He could not furnish the committee
with any evidence as to what saloons
they were going into. Tascher swore
he knew nothing of any graft or cor
ruption on the part of tho city of
ficials. Studley No Candidate.
G. A. Studley denied when called
upon the stand that his part in in
vestigating alleged law violations in
tho city was to further his candidacy
for alderman from the fourth ward
j on tho citizens ticket. Studley said
; that "he was not as yet a candidate
for any office. He did not commit
himself as to his futuro plans.
Mr. Studley admitted tho authorship
, of a letter printed in Thursday's Trib
' uno in which ho expressed himself
that tho council was incompetent to
conduct such an Investigation as they
wero conducting and uskinp that tho
prand -jury investigate tho city's con
ditions. When queried by Atty. Drummond,
Studley stated that it was merely his
opinion which he had expressed, lie
admitted that he was entirely igno
rant when he wrote the letter of the
law passed by the stato legislature of
1905 imposing upon city councils a
duty to investigate charges of graft
or corruption lodged against them.
Mr. Studley refused to ptate, when
asked by Atty. Drummond, that his
sole object in investigating liquor law i

pose of finding evidence with which
to prosecute the offenders. He said
that his sole object was to get "pub
licity." Atty. Drummond asked Mr.
Studley if he was not in this manner
trying to do good by not doing any
thing. Mr. Studley replied that he j
"guessed he would do his share."
The witness admitted that it was
but one of his pastimes to watch the
behavior of saloons and told of going
down the Smoky Itow alley one Sun
day morning while en route to Elk
hart. He had just live minutes to
spare and "wanted to see what he
could find out." Mr. Studley said he
kiw nine men passing through a sa
loon door in this time
turn from Elkhart about noon hoi
again went down the alley "to see?
what another five minutes would re- (
veal." This time he saw more men
going in and out the alloy.

While Warn bach waa talking to them,
another man came to the door of the
Warn bach saloon, rapped. giving

and gained admission. This was all
Aldrich knew of law violation. He
testified that the I'earce saloon on
this side of the river was to all ap
pearances closed. The witness know
nothing of graft or corruption exist
ing existing in the city.
Weir Tells of Trip.
Charles Weir was next examined.
He said that he made a trip to the
west end saloons on July 13th to see
If conditions were such as they had
been reported. In his first trip he
saw nothing because as he said "it
was too early and the time wasn't
ripe". Later he made another trip
and found all saloons In this part of
the city closed except the Coppens
saloon where he said he saw the pro
prietor pass a drink over the bar to a
young man. Seeing this the witness
says he hurried to the side door and
met Coppens and the young man com
ing out. Coppen. the witness said,
looked at him and said "Nothing do
ing". At the VanDaele saloon Weir
saw several men congregated In the
street. When he neared he said two
of the men left and walked toward
the xear of the saloon. Weir inter
pret. C this as a signal that he was
coming but did not say why the men
should signal anyone of his approach.
Weir testified to another trip made to
the west end on Juby 20. He saw all
the saloons in this section apparently
closed on this date. He said, how
ever, that the crowd was again In
front of the Van Daele place and that
several men again left upon his ap
proach, going to the rear of the sa
loon. Dr. Edward Testifies.
Dr. Edwards agan came to the
stand and testified to alleged liquor
law violation. He said that on the
Sunday he investigated the "Smoky
row" saloons, two were doing busi
ness. The witness said that at the
Mishawaka saloon he saw two men
drinking at the bar and a bartender
behind the bar. This he said he saw
from the front door.
At the saloon on the corner of the
alley between Main and Mill sts., on
the north side of Second, Dr. Edwards
testified that he saw men going into
the rear door. He said that he made
an effort to get in himself to see the
conditions going on. One man came
and looked into what he said was a
freshly drilled augur hole and was
admitted to the place. The minister
said that he followed suit, looked into
an eye on the other side of the hole
and could not gain entrance. Dr. Ed
wards later saw the first man come
out of the saloon, according to his
"City Never Tight" Edwards.
Asked if he had any statement
further to make, Dr. Edwards said
that on no Sunday whatever was the
city absolutely tight. He said that
sometimes it was tighter than at oth
ers but that the saloons were never
all closed. The minister further
stated that he had turned all Infor
mation gathered by him to the county
prosecutor and that he Intended se
curing and handing In more. His ob
ject according to his testimony Is to
"Clean Up Mishawaka".
Janitor MUoarries Note.
An amusing .yet regrettable Inci
dent occurred during the session of
the committee when the janitor was
given a note by a young woman in
the audience to deliver to Dr. Ed
wards. The janitor does not speak
or understand English fluently and
thought the message was intended for
Atty. Drummond. The latter opened
it and read it but did not understand
the contents. Mr. Edward's name
was on the missile and the attorney
thought it was a note from the min
ister to him asking to be allowed to
appear on the stand again. A con-
i troversy ensued between the two gen
tlemen, the minister demanding an
apology from Drummond. The latter
said he saw nothing to apologize for
as it was a regrettable mistake and
the matter was dropped.

The audience was larre at the ses
sion, the space in the rear of the
chamber as well as the gallery being

The first steps toward the opening

A force of electricians for the
Home Telephone Co. are pulling out
over 450 feet of lead cable which
carries hundreds of wires, from the
conduit in the alley between Second
and First sts., E. Main st. Nearly
every year this has to be done as the
cable becomes eaten during the wet
months of the year.
The cause of the trouble is due to
electrolysis which is nothing more
than juice from the street car tracks
which makes its way through the
ground to these cables. It is thought
that the juice enters the cable from
Main st., and works east to the con
duit where it passes into the cable
and then up the cable to Second st.,
where it leaves. There is no damage
done when the hot stuff enters the
cable but it eats the wires when it

that tho crisis will, not be reached in
Mexico until tho northern rebel
armies press close to Mexico City and
the fedoral strongholds, indications
were Friday night that an effort
would be made by the Washington
government to pursue a well defined
policy before events reached a crit
ical stage.
The first step in the formulation of
a policy will be taken Saturday when
Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson will
bring to the president ard Secy.
Bryan first information of the situa
tion there. Mr. Bryan Friday an
nounced emphatically that there was
no disposition on the part of the ad
ministration here to interrogate Am
bassador Wilson about the numerous
reports alleging activity on his part
In connection with the downfall of
Madero and the establishment of the
Huerta regime. He added that the
ambassador had been called merely
to throw light on present conditions
in the troublesome republic.
After Ambassador Wilson has con
ferred with Secy. Bryan he will talk
further with Pres. Wilson and proba
bly will be asked to appear before the
senate committee on foreign relations.
It was apparent tonight that the
present policy of the administration
was to prevent all shipments of arms
to either side pending a final deter
mination on this point.
