The Keynote of Governor | Hughes's Speech at Indianapolis. Indianapolis. Ind., Sept. 29.— Governor Hughes, of New York, reached he^e at noon and was met by a large escort headed by Mayor Book waiter and officials of the state Republican committee. Governor Hughes was driven to Tomllnton hall. Senator Beverldge rode in the carriage with Governor Hughes, who in his speech before a crowd that com- pltely filled the hall, took Mr. Bryan for his subject and brought forth rounds of applause by his chastisement of the Democratic candidate. He pictured Bryan as a vislpnary and a man of words, not deeds. He said Bryaii is a candidate this year, because he has never had an opporjtunity to put his ideas Into effect. "If Bryan fcad been elected Ii| 1896 the disasters that would have ed wou'd have prevented him !N^'er being a candidate again." yrJie denounced Bryan's ant ideas and policies and condemndd the Democratic plan for the guaran ee of bank deposits, declaring that 1 dan^rous, and placed a premfiij dishonest banking.

Unless s|)eedily exonerated Governor Haskell will be hard press ed by fcis opiionents should he con tinuv in the state campaign in Oklahoma. The Guthrie State Capital (Republi can.i y'lissests editorially that Governor Haskell should resign as govern or. saying that if the charges against hini were such as to embarrass the Democratic national committee to the extent of making his resignation'd' sirable the embarrassment is just as great to the people of Oklahoma to retain him as governor. The Capital *i;i whether or not Mr. Bryan, .ifter letting Haskell resign, will stiil permit him to direct his campaign for flij' electoral vote of Oklahoma. News was reeelveil from Alfalfa county that a petition was being circulated there, sisned by D<'mocrats. as well as Republicans, asking Governor ilasHell to n-sign th4> governorship. (Jovernor Haskell's alleged friendliness 10 tbf Prairie Oil and Gas com Iiany. wMcli he declared publicly is thi' Standard Oil comjiany. has been a campaign Issue here for two weeks. The Prairie Oil and Gas comiiany purchases and transiiorts through its pipe lines crudt> oil for the Standard fro mthe Oklahoma field. To a limited degrew the coitiiiany Is a produfing company, oiierating a number of oil leases. Thi' production iir the Oklahoma oil fields became Kreat«>r than the facilities of the Standard for Iran.'•.porting the oil. and private ]iroduc- ers soon found themselves In financial straits. ha\Ing borrowel inotiey to drlM wells and getting no income to pay their loans. The constitution of Oklahoma says that "the benefit of the right of em- iiiineiit domain" shall be enjoyed only by imbllc service corporations that have domestic characters, and elsewhere that an oil pipe line is a common carrier. The Prairie company operates as a private carrier in Oklahoma and is a foreign corporation. To domesticate would force the admission that the company is a common car.-ier and make it wholly amendable to all the rules and regulations of the state corporation commission, which-are drastic. The Prairie company had steadfastly refrained from becoming a domestic corporation. .As a private carrier and purchasing company It Is In position, by buying at its plea.sure. to control the price of crude oil, a ^d eventttally the price of refined oil ami Its by-products. When Governor Haskell agreed to the Prairie company's proposal. t|ie latter began building Its new lines. Chas. West, the stale attorney general, bitterly opposed to the Standard and its methods, promptly brought suit to restrain the building of the lines, declarine that the company was enjoying the benefit of the right of eminent domain in the use of the public highways; which it could not do aa a forlegn corporation. Governor Haskell at once moved for a dismissal of the suit, pleading that the attorney general had no power to bring a suit In the nanii>^ of tfie sUte unless told to do 80 by the govenior. | Chicago.

Forrest Ball, and his family, on the 14th of August, was yesterday bound over to thw ,ynn county district court by iJuatlce W. L. Barnes. The preliminary hearing was hid in Blue Mound yesterday afternoon. In the preliminary yesterday, the, defendant offered no testimony. Only six witnesses were called by the state. The witnesses were Forrest M. Ball. 3o!in O'Hnra, Mrs. Laura O'Hara. .Mrs. Newti'Sn, Chas. Hntton. and Geo. Ross. According to the testimony offered by the stal^ ^Irs. Ball, the defendant, on the aftempon of August 14th, was seen in Oakwood. a short distance from the home of her step-son, Forrest Ball, and where the alleged poisoning was atjtempted. George Ross testified that she stopped at his home on the afternoon of .August 14th, and asked for a drink of water. Shortly before dark on the same day she was seen at the southwest comer of Forrest Ball's farm.

PRAISED ROOSEVELT'S ANSWER. Many Congratulatory Telegrams Received by the President Yesterday. Washington. Sei't. 2<.—President Roosevelt rt'c<'ived tiiaiiy congratulatory telegrams today irom Kepublican leaders throughout the country on his reply to .Mr. Bryan. "When will the President have an other?" wis a.sketl of Secretary I.oeb. Not toiiay. that's sure." replied the secretary. '"The President is having real rest; today, but is ready for any \ one who comes after him." For the first time since his returnj to Washington the President went horseback riding this afternoon. He was caught in' a rainstorm, but kept Ight on through the storm. Senator Burrows and Wade Ellis, attorney general of Ohio, called on the President and consulted him regarding the campaign speeches they are to make In West Virginia ^nd throughout the West. seve.nty-five feet from Forrest Ball's house. The tracks indicated someone had walked in and tjien returned. However, no attempt wag made by the state to prove that the! tracks were those of the defendant. ; Tl:e state proved that the water contained arsenic. The members of Forrest Ball's family used the water from 'his barrel for drinking and cooking •lurposes. It was a noticeable fact that the attorneys for the state:did not attempt, to prove a motiva which would prompt tlie defendant to poison her Htep -Kon and his family. It was also noted that no attempt was made to | show that she had purchased poison.^ John W. l '.M )r. of Mound City, the \4 deefndant's attorney, stated that the tirosccuthig wUnes.s would have a motive to take his ste|>-inother's life whlb' on ilie contrary there was no motive for her to wish Forrest Ball, •er step-son, dead. The reason, he said, was when his father, Isaac Ball, lied August 1st., he left the entire estate to his wife, the defendant, as 'ong as she lived, after which it was to go to him. He also said that he !iad' threat'-ned to- take the life of his step-mother. The state is being represented by Tohn Morse, county attorney of Lynn county. Justice Barnes placed .Mrs. Ball's bond at $1.0()0 which she gave at onc«'. Much interest is being shown In ibis case. Tbis is perhaps due to the prominence of both Forrest Ball and the defendant, Mrs. Ball, both in this 'ind Lynn county. The court room at Blue Mound was filled wl^en'. the case was being tried yesterday. The sentiment in Blue Mound, according to best Information, favors the defendant. BCSY WEEK FOR MR. SCOTT.
