LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 22.—The i\ V . nty-seventh annual encampment of t | ie Department of Indiana, G. A. R., which opened here this morning, has attracted several thousand veterans ;im l visitors from all parts of this state. The city is handsomely decorated and the hotels and streets are crowded with The morning was devoted t ,, the reception of the arriving dele gates. their registration, the distribu tj,,n cf the badges and the preliminary v nrk of the organization. In the aft ernoon there will be several committee meetings.

The first business session of the en campment will be held tomorrow morning. At that session George Dur ban. mayor of Lafayette, will deliver an address of welcome, to which De partment Commander M. B. Tackett will respond. Oother prominent mem -1,,-rs of the G. A. R. will also deliver ihlresses. At noon the encampment will adjourn and at half past 1 o'clock the parade will start. It is expected that this will be the largest parade ever j held by the Department of Indiana, j ■owing to the fact that nearly all the J inmates of the State Soldiers' h. me will take part in the parade, be sides the large number of veterans who are here to attend the encampment. The parade will be reviewed by Corpo ral Tanner. After the parade another business session of the encampment will be held. Three c impfires will be held Wednes day evening.

Thursday morning the final business session of the encampment will be held. At that meeting the officers for the coining year will be elected. There is considerable rivalry for the office of department commander, the principal candidates being Byron R. Russell, Crawfordsville; Dr. A. R. Tucker, No hlesville; E. R. Brown. Monticallo, and John D. Alexander, Bedford. HE HAS A BRAND NEW ISSUE CUMMINS SAYS HE IS READY TO TAKE UP THE CUDGELS AT ONCE. # DES MOINES, May 22.—That Gov- «■ 111 >r A. B. Cummins, in addition to attempting to incorporate the "lowa idea" of tariff revision in the next re publican national platform and taking the lead in an effort to amend the con stitution to provide "for popular elec ti n of United States senators .will a!mi become the champion of a consti tutional amendment to legalize the in < 1 .me tax. is an assertion that has been r a le by his close political friends. Through a national convention, to \\hicli every state in the I nion will be , <ked to send delegates. Governor tnmins has planned beginning a \ement. to be carried on jointly with for the amendment for the popular tion of senators. The idea of thus -inning a campaign for the income t x was an afterthought. A resolu ■n. introduced in the legislature last 1 '"iter by Senator Lewis, was passed, ■r! rizing the governor to call a dele gate convention in Des Moines to be in an organized effort for the election ■'f United States senators by direct vote of the people. This resolution ••rives the governor power to Invite the governors of all other states in the Union to send five delegates each to a vention to be held in Des Moines at h time as the governor should fix. ■vernor Cummins has not yet issued » ' . s call or invitations to the govern- When President Roosevelt, on April 14. in his muck-rake speech, suggested r.rt inheritance tax designed to keep fortunes beyond healthy limits being ransmitted In their entirety, discussion »f the income tax was revived and it vas then, according to Governor Cum mins' friends, that he suggested the .plan of having the delegate convention called for by the Lewis resolution take up the Income tax also. Governor Cummins' plan for secur ing the popular election of senators is by demand of two-thirds of the legis latures of the United States. When such a number of legislatures has asked for submission of the amendment for ratification, congress must, under the constitution, call a convention to pro pose the amendment, which would be idopted when approved by three fourths of the legislatures. The same plan would, of course, apply to an in come tax amendment, and it was thought that the campaign could be carried on for the two about as easily as for one. By championing an amendment to the constitution to legalize the income tax, Governor Cummins does not agree with the many who have expressed the belief that an opportunity should first be given the United States supreme court' to reverse its income tax deci sion. By amending the constitution all doubt would be removed, and for this ■•eason the amendment plan would be considered the more direct and certain. That the income tax idea will be popular in lowa is certain. Governor Cummins has preached against the en croachments of predatory wealth upon the rights of others until the people are in the frame of mind to approve cor dially any proposition to put more on the shoulders of the rich. It will be regarded as a short cut toward many reforms advocated to restrict the oper ations of capital. IT AIDS SPREAD OF INSANITY EMINENT NEUROLOGIST GIVES HIS VIEWS ON SUBJECT OF CRAZY PEOPLE. NEW YORK, May 22.—1s the man with the muckrake causing an increase of insanity in the United States? Is the sensationalism of the literature of exposure against which President Roosevelt protests responsible for the fact that more persons have been los ing their mental balance during the past few years than ever before? The figures for the state of New York seem significant. In the past 13 years the increase in this state has amounted to no less than 25 per cent in the ratio of the insane to the general population. Dr. William B. Pritchard, who is con sulting neurologist at Smith institute, Staten Island, is one of the physicians who believe that too much sensational ism in reform propaganda has had much do with increasing the num ber of the insane. Dr. Pritchard said: Doctrines Are Insane. "The intensity of the political agita tions of the period ha*e certainly had their effect. There have been Bryan- | ism and free silver, municipal owner- j ship, socialism and other insane doc trines—yes, I stand by that, insane doc trines— and many persons of weak minds have been so confused by the clashing of opinions that they have be come insane. "I do not mean that there are not sane free silverites and sane believers in municipal ownership and sane so cialists. What I believe is that the agitation of these theories has in some cases driven to insanity persons who were already pre-disposed in that di rection. "T believe that the sensationalism which has been injected into much of the social and political reform move ment of recent years has had a similar result. There is no doubt that the country is passing through an import ant epoch of municipal and govern mental betterment, but there is also no doubt that a regretable element of sensationalism has been added to the movement, both by public men in their speeches and by newspapers and mag izines in their editorials and published articles." At Galesburg. GALESBURG, 111.. May 22.—The an nual state encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, Department of Illinois, opened here today.
