Two larse. crowds heard Robert M.
Milburn, democratic nominee for at
torney general of Indiana jpeak at
North Liberty and Walkerton Friday
afternoon and night and the speaker
disclosed many interesting facts in his
address relative to the status of the
democratic party regarding the keep
ing of its promises. Mr. Milburn was
accompanied on the trip to North Lib
erty and Walkerton by democratic
nominees for county cfijes, several of
whom also gavu short talks at each
of the meetings.
In his addresses Mr. Milburn cov
ered many points of the democratic
administration which have been at
tacked by its opponents. The sub
stance of the talks proved he misrep
resentation of the propriety of sev
eral important laws which have been
passed by democratic legislation. In
referring to the Wilson tariff law and
its benefits compared with past
statutes of the same nature, Mr. Mil
burn said:
Jarty Has Kept Faith.
"What accounting can the demo
cratic party render of its steward
ship? What proof can it make that
it has kept the faith? In the first
place it has given the people the best
tariff law since the Walker tariff of
IS 16. The only tariff law in that time
that was not written by the special in
terests. Xo tariff law ever did more
for the farmer, the business man or
th laboring man. No class was dis
criminated against. Jefferson's policy
f 'Kqual and exact justice to all men,
of whatever state or persuasion, spe
t ial privileges to none' was followed
"Where duties have been removed
or reduced on one product of the
farms, they were removed or reduc
ed n five or six manufactured arti
cles at the same time. Many reduc
tions on things we have to buy have
already come and many more would
have come by this time had it not
been for the Furopean war, which,
not even the "Wise men of the east
could foresee. It will lie recognized
by every fair thinking man as an hon
est effort on the part of the demo
eratic party to relieve the people from
unjust burdens and unequal condi
tions, without inflicting injury upon
any honest business.
"The making of the tariff by the
consumer was a new departure in
legislation. The McKinley bill, the
Dinghy bill, the Payne-Aldrich hill,
and in fact every tariff enacted by
he republicans, were by their very
nature rank discriminations against
the interests of the farmer, the la
borer and the small business man. be
cause in the main, the juice of the
products of farm and labor are de
termined in the marts of the world.
The surplus of our farms goes to oth
er countries and is determined by the
law of supply and demand.
"No tariff bili can protect you in
the thing you sell abroad. Hut the
consumer was turned over by the re
publican tariff policies, bound and
gacgetl to have his pocket picked and
his raiment stolen by the tariff barons
trusts r.nd monopolies, the legitimate
spaw-i of that sort of ;t system. The
1 oof man's necessities were taxed
higher and the rich -man's profits
Were multiplied. It was the old game
of 'Heads I win and tails you lose

"Hut they say, l.Ooo.OOo busheh of

Arrangements have' been complet

Two Witnesses Testify to See
ing Joseph Smith, Accused
by Fifer, at Armory on Night
Druggist Was Shot.
Frenzied Finance Had Much to
Do With Wrecking of Rock
Island False Entries Made
in Books.
A decided pe.Int was scored yester
day afternoon by the elefense in the
trial at Klkhart of Floyd Fifer for the
murder of Emanuel Fink. Clarence
Custer, a member of the local national
guard, testified that he saw Joseph
Smith at the Co. F. armory on the
nigh' of the murder. According to
Fifer's confession Smith was with him
on the night of the shooting. Custer's
testimony was corroborated by Claude
McMillan another member of the na
tional guard.
The admission of this testimony was
the first success of the defense in its
effort to prove that Fifer's confession
was obtained while he labored under
undue influences. Cross examina
tion by the state failed to shake
either man's story. When Attorney
Peak introduced, the witnesses stren
uous efforts were made by the state
to kee p out their testimo ny. The jury
was excused while Peak and Mont
gomery argued the matter before
Judge Harmon. The court ruled in
favor of the elefense.
Tn the attempt ef the defense, to
prove an alibi for Fifer, witnesses who
atteneled the revival services at the
Linden av. Christian church em the
night e.f the shoe. ting were examined.
Among these was the evangelist Frank
Massey. He said he could not tell
owing to the crowds whether Fifer
w;is present or not.
Harry Mclnnes and John Ehrhart
testified that they saw Fifer at the
revival services but could Aot recall
the night. He.wever, they said it was
on the night that a Mr. McWilliams
went forward. Harry Murray testi
fieel that he saw Fifer between the
hours e.f 7 and 7: HO em the night of
the shooting but not afterward.
Character witnesses included a
physician and Councilman from War
saw, two women from South. Hend and
a school teacher from Wars iw. All
testified to the good character of
Court adjourned until Monday.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. Frenzied
finance figured in the wrecking of
the Ke.ck Island railroad.
This became evident Friday at the
investigation of that road's affairs
before the interstate commerce com
mission. Keckless dissipation of the Itock Is
land railroad's assets in extravagant
salaries, campaign contributions and
shady business transactions were
pointed out.
Watering oi stock anel false entries
in boeks of te company were two
salient charges advanced by Fred C.
Sharood, an expert accountant of the
interstate commerce commission, who
was on the stand most of the day.
H. L,. Hine, president of the First
National bank of New York, who took
the stand towarel the close of the ses
sion, was characterised "a dummy di
rector" of the Roc'c Island Railway
company by Chief Counsel Joseph-W.
Folk of the commission.
"You believe it is the duty of a
director who is a trustee of the stock
holders money to look after the big
interests to the detriment of the lit
tle fellow," insinuated Folk.
"Not exactly that," said Hine, "but
I look after the controlling interests.
I am not takin- care of stray sheep."
Here is the way as shown by the
evidence that the Reeel-Moore syndi
cate controlled the Rock Island rail
road: They got contr 1 in 1901'.
Holding ' companies were organized
in New Jersey and Iowa. Employes
of the Itock . Island -were made direc
tors in these two companies. The
holding companies issued together
stocks and bonds to the amount of
$.30,000,000. .This amount was entire
ly dependent on the earning power of
the $75,000,000 capital stock of the
Rock Island company. The New Jer
sey company was called the Rock Is
land company; the holding company
in Iowa was known as the Rock Is
land Railroad company. This whole
scheme was labeled "watering" by
Sharood, the expert.
Chief Counsel Joseph W. Folk, rep
resenting the commission, observed.
"The Rock Island is swimming in
water five times its own volume."
Ily the evidence produced Friday
the commission showed thai, the lioek
Island lost $40,000,300 in two deals
i tiir. ciln 'rf tbn 'Wiser, mid the Chi
cago and Alton.
In the sale of the 'Frisco 535,000,
00 0 was lost.

eptember Sales Established the
tipremacy of the Stuidebaker SIX.
' We have already pointed out that September was the big
gest month in the history of the Studebaker Corporation:
That September Studebaker sales were $4,277,797.92:
That from Atlanta to Minneapolis, from Los Angeles to
New York, the length and breadth of the country, the sale of
Studebaker cars for September, compared to September, 1913,
showed a total average gain of 232 per cent.
This, we believe, demonstrates that the American people
still have the confidence to invest, the judgment to invest, and the
money to invest in d product that is staple, and a company that
is standard and substantial.
It was impressive proof of the confidence of our fellow
Americans in the Studebaker Corporation, as well as in themselves.
Such sales, such national recognition, such prosperity, have
proclaimed with particular emphasis
The supreme position of the Studebaker "SIX".
It means that the Studebaker "SIX" is accepted as the
product of Studebaker character, 62 years in the building.
And the American people themselves have helped build Stude
baker character by endorsing and rewarding it.
Such national endorsement as this throws the white light of
national attention upon the Studebaker "SIX".
The "SIX" is but a feature of the great line of Studebaker
cars for 1915.
And yet, we believe, more Studebaker "SIXES" were sold in
September than any other six-cylinder car in the entire motor car
The splendid Studebaker "SIX" with its maximum
of roominess, elegance, distinction and sterling motor
car worth, with the excellence of Studebaker manufacturing meth
ods and Studebaker character built into it, at a price 1385
possible to the Studebaker Corporation only, has been accepted
once again by the American people as a standard and unquestion
able motor car investment.
And back of the perfect Studebaker "SIX", too, is the asset
and guarantee of "Studebaker Service" the assurance that with
every Studebaker car goes, not merely a motor, but motoring.
Studebaker Service as well as Studebaker Value is an integral
part and product of Studebaker Character.
And the American Nation has already proclaimed the su
Dreme value of that.
