Characterizing the so railed citi 5c ''lis' movement as temporary and vvanoM-ent, its platform as kaleido scopic and its campaim methods as ontemptible, Benjamin F. Shivoly. Vnited States senator, spoke to more than .'00 voters in Turner hall Wed i.eFday niht. Shlvely's speech was made in iieknowled'-fim: the introduction as chairman of the meeting, which was the greatest in point of enthusiasm of tip' campaign. He denounced the ampaicm of slander against the city, declared there w;us no occasion for a popular uprising such as the citizen' movement purports to be, and point ed out that the result in South Hend will have its effect on the national political situation. The senator specifically declared that he does not believe national is Mies should be injected into munici pal campaigns, but he pointed out mphatically tliat If the voters hhould repudiate the democratic ticket In the local election after the campaign of villification, a portion of tho press would bo eaer to hail the defeat as a "repulsive discrediting of the democratic national administra tion from the Industrial center of In diana." Joyce (lots Ovation. When Patrick Joyce, the candidate for mayor, arose to speak he was invert an ovation lastinp several min utes. Applause' and shouts of ap proval drowned the hrst words of his speech. He arain pledged himself to be a real mayor "of the people." Other speakers were 1. M. Ham merschmidt, John B. Stoll, Timothy 11. Howard and Patrick Houlihan, candidate for city jude. Harvey Jtostiser, candidate for city clerk, .lames McCullough. George White man and George Cimmerman, candi dates for council, were abso on the rostrum. The auditorium of Turner hall was crowded to its capacity, in cluding the balcony. In accepting the chairmanship. Sen. Shively said: "I appreciate sincerely the request xtended me to be with you tonight. I appreciate it as one of those evi dences of good will which is decidedly i; ratifying. "I came here a few days ago from the national capital. As you know, there has been quite a long and stren uous session there. However, differ- ntly tli- members of different parties may look at it. there were great ques tion which came before that con gress. They involved large issues, large interests. They involved issues tliat will ultimately go to eeiy fire side, to every factory, to every home ia the country. "They involved issues not only ma terial and indiurial, but they in volved questions that go to the prob lem of the people's morality. high ideals of citizenship, and the separa tion of I oval and selfish interests from the interests of government. Prcfcis to lo Kight. of course, we're engaged here in a local campaign. livery citizen should l e awake to the prudential affairs of till' cifv in which he lives; to be vigil, to be watchtu', is to be a good citizen. The average man, after all. prefers be right io doing that which is not right, an1 if that were not true our institutions in this country would bie a rather hopeless future. "I have r.o use for the confirmed !simist. There arc always in the ourse of government in tree coun tries, things that mav not suit this man or that ma::. Hut the whole tendenc" in nir country is toward higher ideals and better things. The tendency is mt only toward better things in Mate and national govern ment but in municipal government as veil. Xot only is there a tendency that the do'lar paid by the taxpayer hall give him a dollar's worth of pub lic service but that the general trend f municipal affairs shall enlarge activities going to the mat rial wel fare and the social life of the people. Man Serious Problem, "of I'yUM". we are not going to set tle tin- tariff uuestion in this ci'y ampaign; nr the curency nue-tion, ! or the national question of the con servation resources. P.ut this ios not m an that ou lia no im-i-ortant jurstien. anil that there are : o serious problems always confront ing the pcor.ie. S-'rom things I have -en I am not so absolutei' certain i hat there are not certain forces that vould like to attach national sipni- cance to this election if it happened to go thp right way. "A? I move about here, and when I an av.y from h re at Washington and other places. 1 am always inter- ted i what people jay and think .ttn-.ut Sitith Heni. And as the years by, and the moiuhs go hy I hear increasingly more complimentary things aid by those who tarried a lit tle uhih- in our city. And it alwas brings a sense of pride and satisfac tion. TlifV sav it is a well kept city, a b.tii city, a progressive city, that 'in re is manifest here a forward spirit and th-y do not st p with the ordinary compliment. Population Doublet!. "To a man who was born in this county, who rernembtrs thi. city when LAS S AND ERFORMAN THE NATIONAL ISSUES it had not as great a population as our sister city Mishawaka who has seen its population doubled, trebled, quadrupled, it is pleasing to have that kind of a habitation, to have a home there, and I take pride in it. I be lieve every other citizen of South JJend does. "On coming to the city, picking up a clipping this afternoon and reading certain things in the newspaper, it seemed to me that it remained for some of our own citizens to cast the irst slur and attempt to put the first stain upon the city of South Hend. "I do not and would not have our citizens shrink from criticism, from hunting out and telling the truth, but when I see a stream of misrepresen tation and mendacity poured over our city by one of the correspondents of one of the great newspapers of this state, our citizens have a right to re sent and rebel from these infamous falsehoods. That is tire occasion of this peculiar campaign. Knows the Candidates. "I am acquainted with nearly all of the candidates in this campaign and my relations with many of them have betn very pleasing. ' Hut here we have a democratic ticket selected by a primary. Here is a progressive ticket selected by a primary. Here is a regular republican ticket selected by a primary, and here is the social ist ticket selected in that way. .And then we have another called a citizens ticket. This is palpably, obviously a temporary organization. It is mad' for the purpose of this campaign. "Nov: we may talk of non-partisan government. I thoroughly believe in non-partisan government in the sense that the power of public position should act for the common good of the citizens, regardless of what par ties they may belong to. "They pay the taxes, they pay the revenue and are entitled to the bene fits of the best government. And that is non-partisan government though it may be administrated bv responsible, political organizations. "I am not impeaching the motives of good men who Joined this citizens' movement, or of good women who sympathize with it; but it is never theless an organization that will "dis appear on the day after election, llrst. lit and Only. There is no pretense that the or ganization is to be preserved as a. consolidated and responsible body of men united for the purpose of seeing that pledges are redeemed. In the very nature of things, and without reflection upon their methods, it is perfectly palpable that like the show bill says, it will be the first, last and only performance. "In all free governments you have political parties. They represent the consolidation of opinion. They rep resent harmony and unity of action. In some way or other, they are the only means in which policies can bo tarried forward, wrought into law and mad' a part of the system of our country. "P.ut why shall it be necessary to let certain reports g( out from our city? I believe that regardless of party, the great body of our republi can and progressive friends. and friends of all other parties, sympa thize with and extend every good will to Pres. Wilson. No president who has ever occupied that exalted posi tion has so completely taken the American people into his confidence. "Publicity is his watchword. There has been through the past too much doing things hack of the scenes too much of fixing, building up and put ting up jobs on the American peo ple. The machinery and the methods and policy of government are brought into the light and the public taken in the confidence of their president. Now many differ from him on some of his policies, but as the days go forward they have increasing confidence in his unshaktable courage and a sphjidid idea of what tho people's idea of the president shall be. "Now you ask lat has this to do with the questions r.i this city cam paign. A certain portion of the press that is seeking to create the impres sion that there s some machine work ing throughout this state, that say there is a h ind reaching out from the darkness and the distance laying its weight upon the affairs of our city, and that this paper must rise and re sent the inference. Hate No Intercut. "I notice some talk about Tom Tag gart and Fairbanks, two men that have just about as much pecuniary or other interest in this campaign as ha? the private secretary of th man in the moon. I do not fear these things very much. They are unde: estimat ing the intelligence of the people in the cities of the state of Indiana. "Hut do you believe for a moment that if their peculiar propaganda could be made to succeed that on the next day the fires of battle would threaten at Washington the country would proclaim that in the great in dustrial sense ihe national adminis tration has been discredited and re pulsed. '"We do not mean that local elec tions should turn upon national issues. Hut I do want t know what there is in the situation to justify the citizen in operating alo,' that line, that is, the citizen of n .y 'f the settled, reg ularly organ! : lolitical parties that is to say, Itlzens' movement represents no pa iv. It represents a congregation of people, some from her', some, fror., there, some for a good purpose, and some for a selfish purpose, assembled to take up a gov ernment and disappear the day after election. Will Find Efficiency. "Now, my friends, it is not my pur pose to detain you, but what is the occasion of a'.' this unusual expression of mendacity v ard the present city government. h record of the city administration in each of its depart ments might be r canned as closely as you will and creditable work will be found there. "In the department where public improvements are made, carried for ward, in the departement of the pub lic safety, in the department of boards that have control of our parks, or in whatever department, you find efficiency, fidelity to the public trust and a determination to give the tax payer the worth of his money. "I know that though the statute would allow a tax levy of $1.34, it is $1.29. It has not been raised here. It has been raised in a score of other places. Some say there has been an increase in the taxable property, and so there has been an increase in the taxable property in other cities, in other local governments who found it advisable to increase the tax levy, but it has not been done here. "There has been an increase in this since. Ten cents taken and added to the park fund and live cents for the track elevation fund. At the end of this year there will be over $50,000.00 in that fund to carry forward that improvement. There have been vast improvements made in the parks, the common property of the citizens. They have made these . splendid breathing places for the children, for the wives, for the husbands through out the city. It is a splendid test of the public spirit of an administration and of the indorsement that a peo ple will give to that kind of an im provement. Xot Penny of Graft. "Good government is going on in an uptight way. Xot a penny of graft lias been developed in the administra tion. Now why is it necessary that a trail of slime should be left over our city, and Fort Wayne and Kvansville, Indianapolis, Terre Haute and other places, that wo should be hooked up with them as a sacrifice demanded. It will not avail them. There is a sense of fair play in the reasonable minds of men that will not stand for that thing, that will not stand for the as sassination of character and good re pute of a municipality. "Xo. I do not think there is any doubt what the people will saj.". There is a candidate for, mayor who does not stand simply on a prospectus, rimply on a platform. He served ir the council for eight year?. He served at a time when the council has vast authority, much more than it has today. Kverything from the smallest account to the most valuable fran chise was then acted upon by the council absolutely; they even selected policemen and firemen by the vote of council and who is capable of showing In the whole history of South Hend a cleaner, whiter record in the coun cil than that made by Patrick A. Joyce? "They say that he was associated with the liquor class. It seems that his people trusted him. re-elected him. Joce Had the Vision. "At a time when the public prop erties of the city were not valued as they are now, at a time when our peo ple did not fully appreciate the splen did advantages of their streets, and the value of their franchises which council could give, at a time before the city awoke to the mistake of recklessness in giving away all streets, franchises. Mr. Joyce had the vision, the foresight, to see the mistake and you will find that he recorded himself back in that day against the mistake. "There are items in the. record from beginning to end, each one pointing an index finger to the character of this candidate. That record is better than any prospectus. It is easy enough for anybody to' promise a spotless future in the proof of public trust. It is a grea'er thing for a man to exhibit a spotless record in the proof of his public trust. "And later, in the position that he now occupies, has he failed in any re spect? There is not a clearer mind on the necessity, on the requirements of our city than Patrick Joyce. In his service in the council he always acted with care and intelligence. There was no power s Mliciently great to bend him from what he regarded the right, and I repeat, this record, such a record is a splendid pledge to tne character and capacity of a candidate presented for the suffrage of the people. X ceded Hy Public. "His associates on the ticket are men. such men as are needed by the public, men of character and worth. P.ut 1 am taking too much of your time. I need hardly repeat that it is not my desire to import national ques tions in this capaign. I know that an interested and selfish press would proclaim a victory for the citizens' party, the citizens' tickets, as repul sive to the administration at Wash ington, and I do not believe, friends, democrats, that the people are going to be deceived. "Simple Simon tishir.g for lishes in his grandmother's treasure box would be a Solomon of wisdom compared to the democrat who is being deceived by this movement being put up in South Rend."

MILL DELIVERED MURPHY'S THREAT Sulzer Says Tammany Candi date Was Boss' Messenger and Was Promised High Ju dicial Place as Reward. NEW YORK. Oct. P.O. Former Oov. Willam Sulzer hurled another political bombshell Thursday. In an interview published in an evening newspaper which has supported him ever since he was elected governor, he charged that Judge Edward E. MtCall the present Tammany candi date for mayor, had gone to Albany last June and sought to have the in vestigations of John A. Htnnessy into various tate departments called on According to Sulzer the judge rep resented Charles F. Murphy of Tarn manv hadd and the fruits of his suc cess "was to be McCall'3 elevation to the chief justiceship of the court of appeals. For the second time Mr. Sulzer charged that Tammany tried to work upon him through Mrs. Sul zer. Some time la.n June, he assert ed, Judge McCall in the guise of a friend visited the executiv emansion in Albany and warned Mrs. Sulzer that her husband had better cease probing into various state depart ment sbecause the men who would be most affected by any adverse 11 nd ings were among the closest friends of Mr. Murphv, or "tho chief", as Mr. McCall is alleged to have called him on that and other occasions. Part of the revelation made Thurs dav in an Interview with Ilennessy. supplemental to that given by the ousted governor. Hennessy said that Judge McCall carried a threat from Tammany Hall to Albany, that Sulzer would ho cast out of olHce unless his inquisitions into affairs of the state highway and prison departments speedily terminated.

Citizens interested in the success of the Lin coln highway movement met at Hotel Bucklen Wednesday evening and ar ranged for a celebration for this city and adjoining country next Friday night, when bonfires and red lights are to be burned along the course of the highway from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

TOOK MONEY TO FURNISH A HOME Nellie Deep, of Mishawaka, is al leged to have stolen $200 from her father, John Deep, Tuesday night for the purpose of assisting William Al bert, XV. Washington av., and herself in furnishing a house that they were to live in after their marriage, which was to take place Wednesday. When the pair, both of whom are Assyrians, applied for a license at County Clerk Christoph's office Wednesday after noon they were refused on the ground that the girl was not old enough. Christoph was referred to John .Schindler, an insurance man of Mish awaka, to have the girl's age certified. The latter upon seeing the girl, thought he identified her as the girl who was wanted hy Mishawaka police for the $200 theft from her father. The pair was arrested here by Pa trolman Diver, and were later turned over to Mishawaka authorities, and are now being held in tho latter place on a charge, of larceny, preferred by John Deep.

Oct. 29. lawyers summed up and case given to jury. Oct. 2 Mrs. Eaton acquitted. PLYMOUTH. Mass., Oct. 30 Mrs. Jennie M. Eaton was acquitted Thurs day of the murder of her husband Ad miral Eaton, after the jury had delib erated for eleven hours. The verdict was returned at 5. OS o'clock, after a crowd of lawyers, rela tives, friends and curious persons had kept an all night vigil in the court room. A remarkable scene took place in the court room when the foreman of the jury announced the words that cleared Mrs. Eaton. The acquitted widow rose to her feet and, gripping the hands of her lawyers exclaimed in a shaken voice: "Thank God. I have the best lawyers in Massachusetts." About 200 persons were in the court room when the verdict was announc ed. In spite of a previous warning from Judge Aiken, the spectators rose in their seats and started to cheer when the defendant was acquitted. Sheriff Porter leaped to his feet and ordered the noise to cease. Almost immediately Mrs. Eaton ac companied by her lawyers left the court house, and started for Assinippi to rejoin her aged mother, Mrs. Vir ginia Harrison and her daughter Dor othy Eaton. nxiKVtotl lvarly Verdict It has been expected by friends of the accused woman that very few ballots of the jury would be necessary to acquit Mrs. Eaton but when tho hours began to drag the less sanguine began to predict a disagreement. Fin ally about 5 o'clock unwonted activity in the jury room indicated that a de cisionn had been reached. The sleepy watchers sat up in their seats. Judge Aiken hurried from his home and took his place upon the bench. Mrs. Eaton who had spent the night tossing upon a pallet In the executive chamber, was aroused and led into the court room. Although pale she showed great composure. Her paleness w;ls accentuated by her black dress but she showed n out ward agitation. Absolute quiet prevailed while the court put the question as to whether or not the jurors had agreed upon a verdict and a.s to its nature. The foreman of the jurv replied: "Not guilty," and then sat dow n. The stillness for a few moments re mained unbroken. Tn the dim light of the lamps, for dawn b;ul not yet broken, the figures in the room sat motionless. Then the overstrained feelings gave way in noi;o. 7 to ." I'or Acquittal The first ballot in the jury uws in formal and stood 7 to for acquittal it was learned Thursday. It was nearly three hours before the Jury voted again. This ballot stood n to 1 for acquittal. The vital points in th jury's discussion were the failure or the state to prove a sale of arenie and the jury's conviction that. Mr. Eaton from the evidence and her ap pearance was not insane. After the second ballot the j:irrs deliberated until p.'t four ob.. k this morning. Then the third and deris ive ballot was taken. When June K"ys. daughter of Mrs. Eaton, heard the news of hej- mothers a'-snittal she exclaimed: "Thank Cod. My pray-rs have b n answered. I have not slept or thp -nights thinking of the outcome. I want to be with mother as soon a-- I an. M.v mother is th iest mother that ever lived. I knev.' too. no other re sult was possible. She ? a good wo man. I think the plea of Mr. M-T-e was the best and mo magnifbent I ever heard at a murder trial." As Mrs. Eaton left, the e..irt hot:--she said: "'Os. T am so happy for my child ren's sake, if for nothing el-." She frnve each of the jurors a h- ir ty handshake. "Isn't the s'm just loy-Iy.

O t. :5.-Tli" case of Jenie May Eaton, charg-d "with the murder of her husband. Rear Admiral Joseph G. Eaton. wa given to the jury shortly af:-r o'clock Wednesday night. Various exhibits, includinr bottle of arsenic, and letters written by Mrs. Eaton, were taken to the jury room to be considered by the jury, in ae cordance with th" intru -lions ..f the chief justice. Almost the entire day was taken up with the arguments of counsel, the charge of Judge Aiken occupying on ly half an hour at the end. William A. Mors. couni for Mrs. Eaton, spoke for four hours, drawing a picture of the defendant n a lov ing. seii'-Njeriiicini;- w ife. entirely justified in her belief alwut her hus band. he was a "martyr" and her only fault was that she "loved too much." her attorney declared, while, he portrayed the admiral as a man of doubl- p-rsonallty. one in whom corruption was concealed undrr the mask of a gentlemanly faring. He asserted that the prosecution had no; proved a single count in Its murder charge against Mrs. Eaton. Client Not Insane. "The aceus-d woman." he said, "does not avail herself of any claim of insanity to avoid a condemnation, but bravely demands a erdict on tho facts.' Mr. Morse asserted that hi client was not Insane and argued that the evidence showed the death of th admiral could not have been caused by an insane person. Dist. Any. .vii ert 1. Darker, after outlining the evidence against the ac cused, asked that if the Jury believed, the defendant was irresponsible, she bo found "not miilty by reason of in .sanlty." "She is more dangerous than a rattlesnake and there is no telling whom she may bite next if she al lowed her freedom." he added. The district attorney's argument occupied three hours. After Judge Aiken had deliver' d his charge, he gave the case into the jury's ha nets at announclnc. however, that the Jury might go ; supper before beginning the delibera tions. Four Verdict." Polhlo. In his charge Judge Van Aiken said there were four verdicts possible: Not guilty; not guilty by reason of in sanity; guilty of murder In the first degree; guilty of murder in the second decree. Judge Aiken explained that a ver dict of "not guilty hy reason of in sanity", carried with it "an order from the court committing the prisoner fr life to an insane aslum" In connection with a erdict of "murder in th- tir.t decree". th judge said the jury must be satisfied that there was deliberate premedita tion. Judge Aiken commented upon the fact that the Eaton case is unique in that the government is the party cot tending that the defendant is of un sound mind. He said it was usually the defense that claimed insanity. "Malicious intent ?nnt be proved, but a motive is not necessary." add-d the court. The charge to the jury followed a. bitter denunciation of the testimony of the defense by Dist. Atty. Darker. N Woman's- Weapon. After saving Mrs. Eaton was the only person who had opportunity to .administer fatal arsenic doses, the district attorney exclaimed, "poison i a woman's weapon". He continued: "Mrs. Eaton divorced her husband and married Adndral Eaton for h! money and when that money was h'M playing the stock' market she reached a turning point which ed the admiral to a grave." Aftr tracins: the testimony down t the night before the admiral. Mr. i'.ark-r said: "She locked the poor admiral up in a roni alone. Her daughter D-rothy's att-mpts to admini-ter medicine the dving man uer- objected to by' Mrs. Eaton. Finallv he cried r,ut. T want a doctor.
