Taylor for Governor.
Wm. L. Taylor of Indianaoolis.
-.f,o, ciA- t. I
-attorney genera' of Indiana, has I
announced that he is a candidate for
the nomination for governor on the
Republican ticket. Harry S. New,
Congressman Overmyer, the United
States marshal, the district an'd coun
a . i . . . . .
ly cnairman at Indianapolis, and a
number of other leading politicians
endorse his candidacy and pledge him
a solid delegation from Marion coun
ty. It is also claimed that Taylor
will have the support of the labor
organizations of the state. He de
clares that sftate institutions for the
cure of cancer, tuberculosis and other
diseases can be built and) state taxes
reduced. Eonoray an 'form will
be the watchwords of h mpaign
for the nomination, and it is appar
ent that he will 'be a formidable can
didate, even with James E. Watsoo
and Charles W. Miller pitted against
him. Fremont Goodwine and Lieu
tenant Gov. Hugh Hi. Miller are ex
pected to enter the race and there
will perhaps be others. In the con
vention' it will be the field against
Charley Miller of Goshen. If his
nomination can be prevented on the
first or second , ballot his opponents
believe that combinations can be
made that will give the nomination
to some other candidate, perhaps a
dark horse.
Indiana Leads in Onion Growing.
According to the onion crop report
for September, Noble county, Indi

bushels of onions raised in any one
county in the United States thij

given of 01,420 bushels for the coun
ty while Orange county, New York,
is second with 450,000 bushels, and
Harden county, Ohio, third with 4l2t

Insisting that he is still in his
prime, Hall Caine calls his press
agent in this country, Sherman Dan
by, an "unmitigated liar" in a letter
which Danby has received at Atlanta,
Ga., Dan'by's enterprising work in
eettiner oiblicity for Caine's "The
Bondman" when had its first per
formance in this country at St. Louis
got him into trouble.
Da:rty sent out a statement to the
press to the effect that "The Bond
man" had been written when Caine
was in his prime, fifteen years ago "
and asserteVl that since that time the
Englishman's writing had deterior
ated into a discussion of the degen
eracy of the Eait Ena of London.
To prov this he referred to Caine's
new version of "The Christian."
The cables carried the story to
England, and Mr. Caine in response
stnt a scorching letter to Danby. He
says Darfty is in total ignorance of
the things he spoke of.

Shot, But Saved His Company $500.
Fred B. Ballou treasurer of the
Cascaden-Vaughan Company, of
Waterloo, la., was shot, at 4 o'clock
Monday afternoon, while driving to
the factory, to pay off the men. Two
men, both masked, stepped out of

the ball park, and, leveling a gun at
him, bade him s'top and be silent.
Ballou grabbed fiis whip and struck
the horse. At the same time a rcb

into account the very unusual climat
ic conditions that have prevailed all

Michigan's Fruit Prospects.
The shortage of peaches in the
Michigan fruit belt has run the price
of that fruit to $2.50 to $3.00 a bush
el in Benton Harbor. Factories are
quiet, and less than one-fourth of thc
usual amount will be canned this
year. A stretch of about ten miles
between South Haven and Covert is
called the "plague spot." Every other
house is deserted, the occupants hav
ing been compelled to abandon their
farms to avoid starvation. Most of
these farms are merely fruit orchards
killed by the unseasonable winter.
Many of the peach orchards are en
tirely ruined, andi it will be several
years before another crop can be ex
pected from young orchards. In
hundreds of cases, owners of old or
chards have not set out new ones,
and prospects for the fruit belt are
consequently very bad.

Indiana is Second in Wagon Industry
Indiana ranks second among the
States of the Union in the manufac
ture of carriages and wagons. Its
output in 1905, the year .for which
the manufacturing census was taken,
was valued at $15,228,3137. Ohio
leads Indiana by a little; less than
$1,000,000. New York comes third
and Michigan fourth. The, greatest
increase in the value of products be
tween the censuse of 1000 and 1905
is shown for Indiana, the gain being
$2,567,120. Each of eight cities re
ported products valued a; $2,000,000
to over $6,000,000.
These . cities were Cincinnati, St.
Louis, South Bend, Ind.;. New York,
Chicago, Racine Columbus and Indi
anapolis. In the manufacture of fam
ily and pleasure carriages, Ohio ranks
first and Indiana second. Indiana
produced 178,962 such carriages.
One-seventh of all the wagons
manufactured irt he United States
were made in Indiana. The output
of wagons in the State ' during the
census year was 92 893. Indiana rank
ed fourth in the manufacture of
steam railroad cars. The value of
this output in 1905 was $24,551,301.
Hearst is Not Candidate.
In an interview published at New
York, William Randolph Hearst
takes occasion to deny that he is- a
candidate for the presidency. He
"I am not a candidate for the preV
idency on the Independent League
ticket or any other ticket, and I can
not conceive of any conditions un
der which I woulvf be willing to be
come a candidate."
This determination, he adds, "is not
because of any feeling of pique or
disappointment at the result of the
late election. I am well satisfied to
be a private citizen arid to labor
through the league, and through the
election for others to promi e the
principles I believe in. I dislike
hdding office, and I dislike particu
larly 'being placed in a position
where the sincerity of my principles
can be questioned through campaign

Harry Ault Escapes from Tuscola

Dared to show his nerve, Albert
E. Peverette of South Bend, serving
a term for the Richland, Mich., bank
robbery in the Marquette prison,

off his left hand. This fact came out
in an investigation now being con

of learning the truth of the alleged
cruelties practiced in the prison. Ac

longer stand the abuse, and when he
was told to prepare himself for an
other beating he replied that he
would cut off one of his hands be

treatment. Jeered at by the keeper,
