The day was by l:ir an itn pn ement d it the opening two days and it' a like Improvement is made Friday, the final day of the big fair should be a banner one. For the first time in three days the downtown district was actually pack ed with people moving up and down the exhibit-laden streets taking in the sights and list ning to the band music over on the court house .square, w nere the exposition queen was crowned on Monday night.

The 11 entries in Thursday's motor cycle race, determined to outdo their lesser powered rivals of Wednesday, tore around the .1 1-2 mile course in the fastest riding seen in this city for sometime. Their time was by far better than in the Wednesday race. They made the five laps in the record time of 22 minutes and " seconds, which is an average of a trifle over four minutes for each lap. The prettiest race of the day was that between Annis and Rushnell. Annis made splendid time and was in the lead until the last lap when it was apparent that Rushnell was creeping up on him. As they dashed by the judges' stand on the next to the last lap, it was seen that Annis was losing ground, and some place on the course in that lap Rushnell passed him and tore past the line the win ner by almost a half minute. Annis finised a Komi second. Hosford. on a Tlarley-Davidson. put up a consistent race and came in for third money. Hess of Elkhart finished fourth, Grochoske, on a Heading-Standard, arrived too late to start with the rest but was allowed to start Just as the race was nearly over. The police. understa riding that the rare was finished, had permitted t rathe to enter the course, and after one lap, (Irochoske was Mailed and stopped. Hun Into the (iirl.

CKET FiilLS I KEHDALLVILLE Plan to Disguise Merger of Republicans and Bull Moos ers Fails to Deceive People. Plans for so-called "citizens" tick ets, the cloak under waich plans for the amalgamation of the progressives and republicans have been advanced, received severe setbacks in two ruore Indiana cities. Kokomo and Kendall- ville are the two cities where the rank and file of the parties have repudiat ed the so-called "non-partisan" move ment. In Kokomo the republicans reject ed a plan by which they were to lose their identity as a party and in Ken- "dallville a mass meeting at which a "non-partisan" ticket was to be nom inated, broke up in a row when the republicans charged that the "slate" had been "fixed" against them. The republicans withdrew and promise to nominate a full ticket of their own. The action was taken in spite of the fact that the present republican mayor, Forrest F. Field, was nom inated to lead the non-partisan ticket. In Kokomo the republicans at a mass ineetirj rejected a plan for fusion, styling it as "abject sur rended." E. J. Homers, a civil war veteran and life long republican. In a fiery speech defended party govern ment in municipalities and the dem onsttatlon (if approval which follow ed his declarations on this point stop ped his speech for several minutes. A call has been issued for a con vention at which a ticket will be nom inated. There were three or four "side bosses" who hail framed up an at tempt to stampede the convention in to surrendering the republican title and emblem and going over body and britches to the hull moosers. The stnmpede was to be started b.v the reading of the communication submit ted t Permanent Chairman Somers. which he declined to read because it had no place in the convention under its call. Having failed in the stampeding program, the "side bosses" will at tempt to have the 62 delegates de part entirely from the letter and spirit of the call "to nominate a full re publican ticket" or either to stand sponser for a hybrid ticket or ad journ without doing anything save to confess that the title of the party, its emblem, its "dignity and decency, have been surrendered. U. S. MAY COME TO AID OF THAW-FOLK BUSY State Department Examines Claim That Treaty With Canada Was Violated In Thaw Case. WASHINGTON. Oct. C. The feder al government Friday came to the aid of Harry IC. Thaw and may take up the qnucstion of Thaw's sanity. Solicitor Jos. W. Folk of the state department is going over Thaw's con tention that the F. S. treaty with Canada was violated in his case. "It looks as though Thaw i making a monkey of the New York law. but that is not so." said Folk. "The state law rgoardlng sentence of instanity instead of sentences of guilt In murder cases is wrongly construed. The New York law is faulty and should be changed." The present plan contemplates an appeal to the federal court at Boston if the decision of Gov. Felker in New Hampshire Is against Thaw in the ex tradition proceedings. .ovi:i;()U mm:its tui; i:xi:citio or mi: INDIANAPOLIS. Oct. .o Indi ana's two convicted murderers, sentenced to be electrocuted, will not have to go to prison instead, because of the state's hick of an electric chair, for Gov. Ilalston has ordered Warden Fouarty to install the outfit " immediately. The trovernor will pay for the ap paratus "Ut of his contingent f und. When the Torre Haute and Crown Point wife slavers were found suilty und sentenced to death recently, it was thought by prison officials that they would be unable to carry out the decree because the last legislature had failed to appropriate money to defray the expense of installing an electric chair. The governor's action in ordering the chair clears all doubts that Indiana would be unable to execute the murderers as only the governor now can save them. ro WIM-AT K0K0M0 EXPECT WILSON TO SIGN TARIFF Senate, After a Listless De bate, Passes the Conference- Report and Will Send Bill Back to the House. DOES NOT INCLUDE COTTON FUTURES TAX Senate Recedes From Former Stand and House is Expected to Do Likewise May be Effective Saturday. WASHINGTON. Oct. C. The demo cratic tariff revision bill probably will be in the hands of Pres. Wilson tor his signature by Friday morning. The senate at the end of a listless debate, passed the conference report at 8:30 o'clock Thursday night by a vote of 36 to 17, only four more than tl.-- nec essary quorum of the senate. fens. LaFollette, republican .and Poindexter, progressive, voted for the conference report as they did for the bill on its passage, and Senators Uansdell and Thornton, democrats, voted against it, as they did against the bill before, otherwise it was a straight party vote. Immediately after the conference report acting on motions made by Chairman Simmons of the finance committee, the senate rejected the Smith-Lever compromise cotton fu tures tax amendment passed, by the house Tuesday, and then receded from its cwn amendment known as the Clarke cotton futures tax plan. Both of these motions were carried without roll calls, and their effect is to leave the cotton futures question out of the tariff bill so far as the senate is con- cerned, Hack to the House. The bill will be returned to the house early Friday. At a conference of house leaders Thursday the ques tion was taken up as to whether the bill might not go directly from the senate to the president. While many parliamentarians held that this course would be legal. Chairman Underwood and Speaker Clark decided that the house should take formal action Fri day to recede from its futures cotton tax amendment. Such action will eliminate the subject from the bill and the completed measure can go to Pres. Wilson at once. Senator Borah declared that the op position to the child labor amendment had been fostered and stirred up by Importers and aided by "sinister in fluences" in this country that were opposed to restrictions against child labor. Nothing So Pathetic. "There is nothing so pathetic, noth ing so menacing to the citizenship of this republic," he added, "as the fact that these conditions of labor continue here in our country year after "ar and there seems no remedy for them." Attempts to impeach the work of the conferees on points of order were overruled by Sen. Clarke, presi dent pro tempore. Sens. Burton and Penrose declared the conference had injected new matter into the tariff bill by changing rates that both houses had agreed to. Sen. Simmons in presenting esti mates of the revenues to be derived from the new tariff rates declared the democrats were to be congratulat ed on the character of the bill that finally had been brought out of the conference committee. "This is the first tariff bill ever nassed in this; country," he said, "that was framed by the whole body of the party re- sponsible for the legislation." It was thought at the capitol Thurs day night that the bill would become a law Saturday. Anticipating such a conclusion to the tariff revision tight, the treasury department was I busy Thursday making linal prepara- tlons to put the new rates of duty; Into effect on all foreign merchandise j on the day following the signature of the bill by the president. It is expected that millions of dol lars worth of imported goods now held in bond will be withdrawn for! distribution in this country within two or three days after the new tariff rates become effective. Little Criticism. The eight and one-half hours of debate in the senate Thursday pro uueed but littlr real criticism of the tariff bill or the conference agree ment. Chief interest centers in the speech of Sen. Penrose, who raised, the standard of the Angora goat over the democratic party and moved the senate to continued bursts of laughter with his allusion to the nvv duty that had been put on anpora wool. The principal criticisms of the con ference committee came from Sn. Pomerene of Ohio, whose amendment imposing a tax of $1.10 a gallon on spirits used to fortify sweet wines had been dropped out by the conferees and from Sen. Borah, whose amend ment prohibiting the Importation of goods made by child labor also had been eliminated. Sen. Pomerene said ho acquiesced in the decision of the conferees be cause he knew the senate members had been compelled to drop the wine tax amendment. MEASURE T SCHMIDT HURLS BEADS AT CROWD As Jury Prepares Collection For Burial of Aumiller Girl Laugh From Spectators Sets Prisoner in Frenzy. NEW YORK, Oct. 3. Just as the "millionaire" jury in the court of Coroner Feinberg was tlnding Hans schmidt, the renegade priest, guilty of the murder of Anna Aumuller, a dra matic incident interrupted the inquest. Coroner Feinberg appealed to the jury, which was headed by Theodore P. Shonts, president of the Interbor ough Kapid Transit Co., for funds to bury the dismembered body of Anna Aumuller to save it from the potter's held. Before a member of the jury could move there came a shower of currency and silves from the back of the room. The spectacle caused some one among the live hundred specta tors to laugh. Schmidt, with a scowl on his face, sprang from his chair, and tearing a string of beads and a crucilix from his throat, hurled them into the crowd behind him. In addition to Foreman Shonts, the other members of the jury were Vincent Astor, G. G. McDuff, Marcus Loewo, Mortimer ltosenberg. Benjf. J. Greenhut. Geo. W. Fairchild, Chas. Dickery, Edwin Marston, How ard Weir. Latham Iteid and Halleck O'Laughlin. Most of the members of the jury are millionaires, prominent in the world of finance. After hearing the evidence it took the jury just 2o minutes to reach a verdict. This was, in effect, that An na Aumuller came to her death at the hands of Hans Schmidt. The- prisoner, slovenly and unkempt in appearance, looked coldly into the Jurors eyes but gave i;o show of feeling. As Schmidt was led back to his cell men and women in the crowded court were fighting for the beads to carry home as souvenir?. The sight aroused Schmidt. "Fools, fools," he muttered. "I thought they were laughing at me." As he was being locked up in his cell he broke out again: "Why all this nonsense?" he cried. "They know I killed mv Anna. They know' she died. This is all unneces sary." MISS TDTT WILL GO TO MEETING South Bcml Librarian to Take Part in Ills State Convention.
