This rise, you will note, occurred

Two Enthusiastic Meetings
Held by Democrats in First
and Third Wards All Lead
ing Candidates Present.
Despite the inclement weather that
prevailed throughout the city Wed
nesday evening, local democrats re-sponde-d
ery nobly to the two meet
ings in the first and third wards, when
Hon. M. W. Mix and the various other
candidates on the democratic ticket
addressed the voters of these wards,
fully bOU voters attended both meet
ings, which will set a pace for tho
"stem winder" that the independents
predict for Saturday night's big rally.
At both meetings Mr. Mix informed
the voters that the, watchword of his
campaign has been to secure the
greatest amount of service for the
smallest possible cost, and he stood
ready to devote the necessary time to
the duties of the office if elected, but
did not deem it necessary to move the
office of the. Dodge Mfg. Co. down to
the city hall. He asked the support
of the people on his previous record
as mayor, and stated that he was at
all times ready to promote the wel
fare of the city and also its citizens.
The first ward meeting was called
to order by Pancranz Vogler, while
George M. Raab introduced the candi

Two Arson Cases and Many
Minor Ones Wiped Off by
Montgomery Ready For
To clear up the criminal docket in
the circuit court in preparation for
the November term, Prosecutor Mont

16 cases. Most of the cases are old
and evidence on which the indictments
were returned is not available now.
Others were actions brought against
defendants who were sentenced on
other charges filed at the same time.
Among the cases dismissed was the
action against Ben Fink, the confessed
"torch" of the arson trust of the mid
dle west, for arson, and a joint action
against Fink and Ben Kahn for lar
ceny. Fink's confession was obtained
in the county .jail here and Prosecu
tor Montgomery consented to his re
moval to Chicago where he is testify

Kahn, it will he remembered, was
convicted of arson, although now at
liberty on bond pending his appeal,

member of the adjusting firm of Spira

arson in connection with the Kahn

to obtain a conviction.

from the docket follow: Mr. and Mrs.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
With the filing of his list of clerks

man, now a member of the citizen
movement, precipitated what may be
a lively little political war.
Miller filed his list with the various
inspectors, and is ready to brinq; legal
action if anv of the inspectors throw
out his list.
Chairman Locke, who was named
by the real progressive committeemen
tb succeed Miller, appointed his list
Tuesday afternoon, tiling it with City
Clerk Bilinski. ,
"I am the duly elected chairman."
Miller insists. "I was elected by the
committeemen who were elected at
the primaries. This other list of pro
gressive otticials was filed simply by a
disgruntled lot of progressive citi
zens." "Miller can't be a progressive and
a citizen, too," says Locke. "The law

HIGR TRIBUTE TO

dares Senator in intnrvipw.
Talks of Wilson and Billv
BY MARCiARI TV TOUIX.
Senator Shively put his bod d wr
on the window sill and leam-d back ;r
his rocking chair to chat awhile .abv:?
affairs in Washington and affairs that
are even more interesting to him. tb
happenings of his own bom" town.
He talked about Pres. Wilson, 1 i 1 1
Sunday and Pat Joyce. He paid tfib.
utes to all three.
"I know Pat J' .vce," said tin ?
tor, "have known him all my life and
he is a tine, manly fellow."
lie went on to analyze his eba rac
ier as he had observed him in the
ears he had known him.
"He is quiet." said the orator, "gen
tie and unassuming. And shy- why.
it is the hardest thing in the world f"r
him to put himself forward as a mai;
must do in a campaign.
"He doesn't want to claim credit
for what he did as councilman or f r
what he has done in the present ad
ministration. It isn't his way t boast
of himself. He would do it for the
other fellow, be glad to do it. But
he would always do for the other fel
low what he wouldn't do for hims If."
Is Man of Idea..
Pat Joyce is a man of ideas. Sena
tor Shively says, a man of vision, ard
a man unfalteringly faithful to a
trust. Ami he has proven himself.
"He'll make the city a good mayor."
is the way the senator summed his
analysis up, "one it can be proud of."
The senator is t nj.ing a vacation
at home. It is the first one he has
had for a long time. Three extra ses
sions of congress have kept him pret
ty busy. But now with the tariff bill
out of the way there is nothing to do
until the currency bill is reported out
In the meantime he is resting and
enjoying a rocking chair and book.
He is als picking up the threads of
life in his home town. He inquired
into the good results accomplished by
Billy Sunday, and took lime for .t
word of praise for an old friend.
Being a legislator is hard work but
necessarily gloomy work, the senator
told me. There is a g od deal of in
terest about life in Washington. Be
ing a legislator was especially agree
able this summer, he said, because tne
democrats got on so amiably together.
And now they have tb conscious
ness of work well done. The senator
explained the tariff to me and all tho
hard work and difficulties attendant
upon a revision cf it while selfish in
terests clamored l,ir consideration. H
explained some of the changes that
were made and the good jje hoped
they would do.
And the greatest good of all is to bo
its psychological effect, he thinks.
Protectionists have preached the doc
trine of feebleness and helplessness f,,r
half a century. The new tariff law
is founded on the gospel of self n -liance.
Americans will begin to think
in the sturdy, independent American
Praises, Woodrow WiUon.
Senator Shively told me ( tho
change that lias taken place in the life
at Washington with the inauguration
of Pres. Wilson. It is as democratic
as it is reported to be. All the frills
and non-essentials have been .shorn
away. Things are done now simply
and directly. No crndeness about it.
he says, just a lack of ostentation and
vnobbery. And the whole thing came
about easily and naturally with no
effort to exploit the new regime.
Tor the president he can't lind ex
pressions that convey all his admira
tion. He praised him l"r his sim
plicity, for his high courage, for his
frankness and openness, and most of
all for his wisdom and honesty.
Mr. Bryan is making a mark for
himself as a diplomat, he says. Be
ing secretary oi state jasi n'w is no
snap. But ilrkvan, Mr. Shively thinks,
in spite of his serious responsibilities,
is enjoying h'mself.
Then we spoke of the vice presi
dent. "I imagine." said I. "that Tom
Marshall is having a real good time."
"Oh, he is." said the senator with
an inward chuckle, "by George, hr' is."
