ONE CENT -r - jjG KSOfJ SAYS EVERYTHi GOOD FOR THE Democratic suf-cess for the entire state was the prediction of State Chairman Stokes Jackson, who presided at a caucus of First district Democratic chairmen and workers held this morning in room 105 at the Vendome hotel. Chairman Jackson said that in his canvass of the state he had found the Republican candidates discouraged and declared that, with two exceptions, state candidates had admitted that they were facing a losing fight. The meeing held in Evansville today was the fifth district meeting that has been held in he uuLLlYER WILL TELL MERCHANTS ABOUT IT Controller Kol'myer will be in-Tited to give h: observations on a home-coming week to the members f the Retail Merchants Assn., who are planning a big celebration for Evansville next week. The controller is chuck full of home-coming week ideas and says the celebration he attended at his old home at Lockport, X. Y.. was a success in every particular. "The merchants of Lockport raised a fund of $S,(K0 for decorations and parades," said the controller today, "and they had $S00 left af.er defraying all expenses of the week. Of course Lockport only has about $25,000 inhabitants and a much larger fund would be needed if Evansville was to give a similar celebration. . "The major part of the money was spent on electrical displays and illuminations and I can truthfully say that for the space covered, the illuminations compared favorably with those at the St-Louis World's fair or the Buffalo exposition. "During the weelt the promoters of the celebration estimated that 100,000 people visited Lockport. If every visitor only spent $1 while in town, it meant Former Local Girl In White Slave Case Miss Louise Lutz, former Evansville girl, is the principal figure in a white slave scandal that is being probed by the authorities at Cincinnati, according to reports, but her friends here believe the case has been greatly exaggerated.

The vacation will end Monday when the delegation will be brought back to the city and their places taken by a crowd of girls.

L ) IN INDIANA THIS sate in an effort to form the greatest Democratic state organization ever known, in the history of the state. Chairman Jackson had nothing to say openly about the threat of Gov. Marshall that he would take a hand in the election in this county but from other representative Democrats present it was learned hat the Governor wa? making no idle threat when he declared that he would do everything he could to see that the disgusting scenes of the - spring primary were not repeated at the fall election. that the city received $100,000 for an expenditure cf less than $S,000. The $1 estimate, however, is very low and I believe that the visitors left on an average of $3 in the town. "The big feature of the celebration was the daily parades. They were very magnificent and attracted wide attention." Farmers Now Ask $2 Bushel For Peaches John and Mary discovered some curious conditions when they shouldered their market basket and started out to lay in some of the necessities of life this morning. A couple of weeks ago John turned down a chance of buying big, juicy peaches, shipped in by the commission men, which retailed around town for 90 cents a bushel. He explained to Mary that he wanted to wait until the home-grown fruit came in and assured Mary that Uncle Bing would bring in peaches from his hill farm that he could buy for 50 cents a bushel. at Boonville, and Helen Osborn of New York, say they were secured to work as waitresses at a hotel at Elkins, W. Va., but that when they got there they discovered that the man who employed them was nothing but a white slave trafficker. On the second night in the hotel it is reported Miss Lutz had a desperate fight in her room with a man who had been furnished a duplicate key to her door. The conditions at the hotel were brought to light when Miss Lutz and Miss Osborn told their story to the Mayor of Elkins. Social workers in Cincinnati ar probing the affair. OFF TO FAIRS The stalls at the fair grounds have practically all been deserted by the race horses and their trainers for the various fair circuits. Most of the horses trained on the local track are now ia Illinois. They will circle through that state and hit the Indiana circuit when the fairs begin. 1 ; 1 1 1 1 1 1 : i : : , 4 : : i ; ; 1 1 1 1 1 ; t r i k Bit. Vera, Joha Hlroal- mous, a Mt.

Marshall will send special deputies to remain on duty at the polls but that he will look to reliable persons in Evansville to furnish him with evidence of election law violations. Reports were made by every county chairman in the district and all reported that their organizations were in first class condition and that the chances never looked better for a sweeping Democratic victory. Cong. Boehne, who is in Michigan for his health, was represented at the meeting by Secy. Bon-ham, who expressed regret that it was impossible for the Congressman to be present. Short speeches were made by Will B. Carleton and Atty. A. J Veneman. Between 40 and 50 representative Democrats from different sections of the First district were present at the conference that did not adjourn until after 1 o'clock. Secy. Wunderlich of the Hen-driewks club told of the work that had been done to bring the organization of the club to perfection and said that a monster mass meeting of Evansville Democrats would be held tonight at Gerreania hall for the purpose of laying plans for the coming campaign. But not for Cncle Bing. When he came to town with his wagon loaded down with red and yellow peaches today he placidly told all inquirers that it required two shining silver dollars to get a bushel of them and that if he didn't get his $2 per he'd take 'em home and feed "em to the pigs. The next discovery made by John and Mary was that the very bottom had dropped out of oranges and that a whole crate of them could be bought for $5. "Funny thing isn't it " said a commission man. "Here oranges are selling cheaped than they were ever known to sell before in Evansville but baled hay Tor the family nag is going up by such leaps and bounds that if it keeps on a bne of hay will soon be as much of a treat to old Dobbin as a lump of sugar." John and Mary finally gave up the peaches and cream idea for orange pudding, bought a bushel of tomatoes for 50 cents, a sack of Dran tor Dobbin and spent the rest of their money for po'atoes at 40 cents a bushel and onions that sold at just any old price. They also bought water melons and cantaloupes, shipped in ones. cause they were told that when the home crop came in the price woTld in all probability be increased. PIPES BURST IS HEAVY AT That the experiment of depending upon the waterworks pumps for hitf-eased pressure during a fire is a dangerous and unsatisfactory one was again demonstrated last night during the fire at the home of Pres. Rickwood of the Board of Public Works in Washington-av. The damage done last night was confined to the breaking of a water main at Eleventh and Cher-ry-sts but there is never a fire, where the high pressure is kept on for any length of time, that more or less damage is not done by the bursting of pipes, that GOLOREO PASTOR GETS Frank Johnson, colored minister, given an opportunity to go to his charge at Mt. Vernon, 111., several weeks ago, when he was arraigned in City court for letting up a woman with wTiom he was living, was again in City court this morning. Judge Gould decided tha; Jackson's congregation in Illinois could manage to get along without his services for a time and fined him J 23 and costs on the old charge of assault and battery.

Ttu' da:e for the meeting has not been set but the bugle call to First District Republican workers probably will not be sounded until early in September. Meetings have been called for every county in :he state for this month for the purpose of completing organization work. County Chairman Ortmeyer called off the meeting for Vander-burg-co on account of leaving the ci;y for points in Ohio. If the chairman's visit to the Buckeye state has any political significance he has not made it public as the only statement he would make was that he intended to combine both pleasure and business while in Ohio.

Museum Row Becomes a County : Issue Now The independent voters of Evansville are rapidly forming their opiu$ir-ttar arid many of them express their feelings in a positive manner. about the v:ong and injustice to the people by the park eoimnissioners in trying to destroy the Museum building in Sunset park. There are eight petitions voters in all parts of the city, building. As the people sign regarding the situation are he; id. Ninety-five per cent of the signers are men taxpayers ai d voters. We hear of their disgust ; ml anger concerning the Museum building question as platned by amateur officials in the City building- Such remarks is these have been heard: "The wanton waste of the people's money is a shame." "No man in Evansville wuld destroy so good a building as the Sunset park building is row if he owned it himself." "The city of Evansville and Vanderburg-co in combination are now dangerously Uepublir.- n. Tolitieans work "them to a finish. We must change this icxtfall." "I have noticed that D mocratie city hall and a Republican court house neutralize each other very much." "We must put these city t nd county officers in competition again and reverse them tlrs time." The "public-be-damned" jolicy of three members of the park board is well recognized 1 y the people and it is well understood, too, that they are aided and encouraged in this extravagant and unfair action by Republican politicians. The people are mad, very mad. And if Republican, candidates for county offices are defeated this fall by the independent voters, the fact that the people are up in arms will bopne of the causes for the change of many Republican votes of' the independent kind. The question regarding the Museum building is the topic of the town. nui - nnnnni nmiA a LYING " ABOUT THE INDIAN L in circulation today among the a-king for the preservation of the these petitions, many remarks 1 BY JAMES S.

Y., Aug. 5. Friends of Vice Pres. Sherman here today will urge him to postpone his return from the Adirondacks for the purpose of taking the stand before the Congressional committee investigating the Gore attempted bribery charges. They placed small credence in the charges as involving Sherman. ROOSEVELT KEEPS SILENT. NEW YORK, Aug. 5. No one had a chance to interview Col. Roosevelt today regarding the fiore charges. When Roosevelt leaped from his autouobile into the Outlook offices he threw a final declaration at newspaper men awaiting his arrival. "I have n statement to make about Sherman," he said, and disappeared. SHERMAN'S NAME A SURPRISE. By the VnMeil Preiia. DENVER, Col., Aug. 3. United States Sen. Charles J. Hughes, jr. today, who introduced the resolution appointing a Congressional committee to investigate the Gore charges, here today said he had never before heard the name of Sherman connected with Indian matters. He said he had not attached great irnportane to the charges when first made. tr & SENATOR GORE. Blind Solon of Oklahoma Who Accuses Vice President. GUS SAYS TODAY "I tot it wuz about time to git.

De weather is goin' to be fair tonight and Saturday, wid moderate temperature. De termometer said 81 at noon today." Can You Locate the Old Government Tree? Here's a good . game for the kids. See if you can find the old government tree in the neighborhood of the .faj. grounds that was blazed by government engineers many, many years ago when Vanderburg-co was laid out. -In running their lines in the old days the government engineers frequently located their corners by an oak tree. There were frequently many of them in Evansville, bearing the marks of the pioneers' axes. But time and progress has left but few of the old blazed trees standing In the county. Tho government engineers would chop out a circular piece of bark and on the smooth surface of the tree write whatever sec- -tion it represented- as a corner. In time the bark grew over the legend but the trees atill served as landmarks for modern civil engineers, who could readily distinguish the trees, chop away the new bark and read the lettering left by the engineers of years ago. One of these government trees is still standing in the neighborhood of the fair grounds. fULLICAN HEADS OWENSEORO LINE G. R.

PROBING BECOMES VERY H Oy the United I'res. MUSKOGEE, Okla., Aug. 5. In tho sensational investigation now in progres-s relative to the charge that a big bribe had been offered Sen. Thos. P. Gore cf Oklahoma to withdraw his objections to certain legislation pending in Congress, so that $3,000,-000 might be paid to J. F. I Murray, an attorney in MeAlester. Okla., an important witness will be offered in the person of Sen-Chas. Curtis of Kansas, who will be subpoened to testify. The examination of Sen. Gore and others so far has brought out some startling statements and it is probable that the Investigation will have much to do with the political future of the men involved in the alleged scandal. Tho $3,000,000 McMurray was to get was to represent "attorney's fees" or 10 percent of $-10.-000,000 a Xew York syndicate was to turn over for 4 5 0,000 acre--of coal and asphalt lands owned by the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians in Oklahoma.
