EVAN NOTED ORATOR OPENS HAMMOND mi MES East Chicago, 1 '"T) T'(v En IT iP H T CAMPAIGN WIDOW TO PUSH CASE V A V MONDELL TO SPEAK HERi Republican Congressman WiilRaiseoolidge Banner at H. S. Tonight The "big gun" of the republican party will fire a broadside in Hammond tonight. The Hon Frank W. Mondell, whose capable shoulders have borne much of the burden of the .. O. P. campaign this fall, will rpcak at the Hammond high school auditorium In the biggest Old Party rally since the campaign was inaugurated in Hammond. The speaking will start at S:09 o'clock. Mondell Is one of that group of silver tongued orators which Is stumping the country for Calvin Coolidge while the chief executive stays In Washington attending to the affairs of the nation. He l.i one of a few of the real leaders of the party. He has attained suc- entirely through his own efforts, bavins' been orphaned while a boy. Eesides being congressman from Wyoming for twenty-five years he was the republican floor leader of the 67th congress and was permanent chairman of the 1924 convention at Cleveland which nominated Coolidge and Dawes. He also notified the chief executive of his nomination . Republican, county leaders have planned! a huge reception for Mondell. in recognition of his authoritative position as one of Coolidge's campaigners. The speaker brings a message straight from the White House in his capacity as one of the official stump speakers of the campaign. On him, on Charles G. Dawes and on a few others rests the entire burden of the republican drive for the November election. The real party Issues will be dis'cussed exhaustively by the speaker, who has made a remarkable record so far in his swing around the country- as a mouthpiece for the candidate.- Clyde Cleveland, republican chairman In Hammond, will probably Introduce the speaker as County Chairman Oliver Starr Is expecting' to be In Lafayette. An attempt is being made to get the high school band to furnish music, and other features will be built around the main event of the evenlne. Mondell is one of the few really great speakers in politics today. He first became famous In congress and In every campaign since he became prominent In public life he has taken an active part and has added to his reputation as an orator of logic and force. . Many hither-to obscure policies of the republican party will be revealed in his talk. His delivery Is forceful, clear and concise, and his long friendship with the President has given him a knovyledge of the man which few have had the opportunity to enjoy. So his message to republicans in Hammond and Lake county will undoubtedly be the most important of the entire campaign, as the candidate himself is too busy with state affairs to take the stump in his own behalf. Like Warren G. Harding's famous "front porch" campaign In 1920, Coolidjre is leaving the active campaigning to his lieutenants. He has done no speaking this year on politics at a purely political meeting, and his few discussions of national policies have been by invitation. Perhaps no party leader has en-Joyed the prestige accorded Mondell as permanent chairman of this year's convention, which saw the rare occurence of a candidate being practically unanimously elected on the first ballot, and a party united almost to a man on all big national questions. Shortly after the republican convention in June, party leaders gathered in Cleveland, and with a ticket of solid republican conservatism they srot together and laid the groundwork for the long and arduous campaign. It was to be a beetle campaign. No one In that memorable meeting doubted that. It made no difference at that time who the democratic convention nominated, for LaFollette loomed as a disturbing factor In the, west and h'.s followers In the convention had demonstrated a complete lack of sympathy with the republican cause. It was decided in this meeting that the picturesque vice presidential candidate. General Charles G. Dawes was to bear the brunt of the republican attack in the west. President Coolidge had already given republican leaders to understand that he would conduct a quiet campaign. a far as he was personally concerned, and that If there was to be any stumping of the Insurgent west and the rest of the country, it would have to be done by others. Mondell la one of the. men who are carrying the republican standard. His memorable speech before the Cleveland convention when he took the gavel as its chairman was characterized by a brief but pointed re-Fume of the issues. He said, "Every serious fault of recent legislation and every failure to complete and round out a satisfactory legislative program could and would have been avoided had there been Tenenclable republican majorities in .Continued un pare eight..

' CHURCH WILL OBSERVE 10TI BANDITS MID DEPOT; STEAL MAIL HIS OLD Indiana Senator Assails Rival Parties With Facts and Figures at Gary last Night Tearing the mask from both the democratic and LaFollette parties. United States Senator James K. Watson who is touring the' country in the interests of President Cool-ldge's campaign, stirred 2,00 .republican voters int oaction at the new Gary Armory last night when he appeared in the biggest republican rally and mass meeting of the campaign. Those who have not heard the senator In one of his political speeches for several years found that "Indiana's Favorite Son" has not lost any of his old time fire. His Fpeech was not one. of political promises but one of solid facts and figures take nfro mgovernment records. He did not mince his words but found time to keep his interested audience in a jovial spirit when he assailed the league of nations and free trade. "When my friend Mr. Davis spoke before many of you. he admitted that there were republicans in his audience but I can say, that you are all republicans and are going to vote a straight republican ticket In November." "I first spoke in Gary in 1900 when there were only a few houses and from your wonderful city's growth I can see i nthe future a metropolis with its bee hives of industry extending all the way from Chicago to Michigan City." Senator Watson then went on to explain the republican policies which has made all this possible. He then exxplained In detail protective tariff and 'taxation measures in a simple manner like few other speakers are able. - With this the senator gave a string of figures to substantiate remarks. "We believe in a high proetctive tariff and keeping away from international turmoil, while .the democratic party believes in free trade and the leagu eof nations and with this the constitution guarantees-to every American, freedom of religion, of speech, of thought, and or equal protection of the laws.- No discrimination based on race, creed or color, the right of home and work and prosperity." "Mr. Davis trys to make his audiences believe this has been "a do nothing" congress and in a way this propaganda has imbedded itself In the minds of the American public. But just the same we have accomplished many wonderful things and under the protection of the constitution we have become the greatest nation in all. recorded history." "When Harding became president of the United States, he was confronted, with bigger tasks than ever confronted a president and there is a reason. We had just, passed through a great world's war and a democratic administration." The republican administration had to bring this country back from war conditions to peace time conditions and It has been no small task. With two hundred and eighty-bil-11 ndollars worth of property destroyed, riotous exxpenditures, out of resources and five million men had ceased to produce." "It has been a difficult task, but the republican parly has assailed many other difficult problems and has accomplished what no other party has ever been able. We always have to have a republican administration following a democratic relrn to clear away the rubbish." "Three billion five hundred million dollars have been saved since the republican party came into power following the war. Did the democrats ever make any such progress. There was an Indebtedness of 26 billon dollars when the democrats handed over the administration and according to the June 30 report it has been reduced to nearly 22 billion. "We are now in sound financial bsls and with Calvin Coolidge v.e will continue. He then predicted that If the republican party continues in power congress will pass a new scientific tax measure. "During the war the United States loaned nine and one half billion dollars to waring nations and when the republicans came Into power we couldn't find even an I. O. U. or record of any kind that money had been loaned." "Mr. Wilson believed in the league of nations. There was a campaign of propaganda to wipe out these debts or in other words they wanted to make these loans a present and we would have been lucky if we had collected our interest." "I will say right here that our policy is colng tobe to collect every red cent of these loans. Has Mr. Davt3 ever told any one what he would do? Whe nwe showed our teeth England came right over and made arrangements to pay 170 million dollars annually for a period of 62 years."

Shay, a detective for the New York Central railroad, was and fatally wounded at 10:30 o'clock this morning by Officer Nathan j Potts of the Gary police depart ment . The shooting took place In front of the Gary postoffiee on Fifth avenue and was wltnee-sed by scores of pedestrians-. Shay was about to enter the post-office in company with Earl Hurst, alias Frank Dirky, and Sidney Par-cell, two Chicago gunmen, wanted for a $50,000 merchandise robbery from the New York Central railroad in Chicago. For several weeks Shay had been associating with the two gunmen to obtain information regarding their complicity in the robbery. Shay lured Hurst and Parcell to Gary on the pretext that they were to bring through a truck load of liquor and said they would find a letter waiting at the postoffiee giving full Instructions about the ship Harbor Plant to M ake Number of Costly Extentions An expenditure of several hundred thousand dollars will be made by -the Youngstown Sheet & Tube company in new extensions at its Inidana Harbor plant, according to an, official announcement.

A. -Campbell, president of the company, it says that surveys are being made to Editor's Note: Following is the second part of an exclusive interview given to International News Service by Dr. Hugo Ecke-ner, who direct jti the construction of the Zeppelin ZR.-3 and who will command the great on her voyage from Germany to Lakehurst, N. J. Dr. Eckcncr denied that storms would menace the ship. By DP. HUGO ECKEXER World's Foremost Authority on Zeppelin Airships. (Copyright. 1024. by International News Service- FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany. Oct. 1J0. The doubts and anxieties of many people center upon the question of whether a heavy storm might endanger-the .ZR-3. . I do net believe that many ask this question in the sense that a storm could damage the airship in the same way it smashes the sails and masts of a sailing vessel or devastates houses and tree on land. Today almost everybody knows, or should know that an airship is submitted to scarcely more stress in a storm than in still weather, because it drifts with the wind and does not resist except with its engines and this is the same in strm as in still weather. Therefore, the only justifiable question is whether stormy weather might prevent the airship from reaching its destination. Theoretically, doubts in the connection sre certainly logical. A brief Illustration: Our airship wfll take along about thirty-one tons of benzine. This suffices for 72 hours if nil the motors are run at full speed end will take the airship a distance of about 9.100 kilometres (nearly 5,500 miles). If, however, there Is a counter wind cf only ten metres per second which is not much the ajrship will covr only 6,500 kilometres (nearly 4,000 miles) above ground in those same 72 hours. In other words the- snip would not reach its destination, for the route mapped out for the Lakehurst Journfy is 7.000 kilometres (approximately 4.260 miles). But if in the same circumstances the airship travels only with cruising speed instead of full speed, then thirty-one tcnsof benzine would last, for 100 hours and the ship would be able to cover almoft 11,000 kilometres. In there 100 hours the ship would make 7 400 kilometres above ground that is, she would reach her destination. You can see from this simple example, which is as variable as you like, that stormv weather must Indeed be carefully included in the calculations of a dirigible commander. Also It can be seen that normally there ts an assurance of safety not in traveling at full" speed but more slowly. In addition, there is a sav-Jng cf gas. EXPERT SAYS AIRSHIP IS SAFE IN-STDRM ment. Meantime New York Central detectives had tipped off the Gary police and secured their co-operation. Chief of Police Forbes snt a detail of men to the post-office to arrest Hurst. , and Tart!! an'd Sergeant Potts was one of the officers. The automobile arrived per schedule and the three men alighted to find plain clothes and uniformed police around them. Sergeant rmts knew that one of the three men was an officer posing as a gunman but he did not know which one. And so when Shay pulled his gun on the police, presumably to carry out his role with Hurst and Parcell, Potts pulled his and fired. The bullet entered the shoulder and deflected to the spine. Shay is at Mercy hospital in a dying condition. Hurst and Parcell are held at the Gary police station on an open charge for the New York Central railroad. build a rod mill here of about 10,-000 tons per months capacity.

LUZON TILL FURTHER Sensational Complaints Said to Have Been Made by Decedent to Wife (BY REX HIDY) CROWN POINT, IND.. Oct. 10 In spite of the fact that Coroner E. E. Evans returned a verdict this morning practically exonerating George Morgan of responsibility in the death of Edward Bough, county farm inmate, the widow and friends are determined that the matter shall not stop there. There is talk of having the grand jury called to continue the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the Hammond man. It is possible that the Jury may be called before the preliminary hearing of Morgan which is set for Tuesday morning before Justice Howard Kemp. The verdict of the inquest based on evidence taken by Dr, L. Houk, deputy coroner, and concurred in by Coroner Evans is to the effect that Bough died from natural causes. This is largely based on the post mortem examination of the body which is said to have shown a mitral heart lesion and that Bough was suffering with tertiary syphilis. The verdict adds that the man was violently insane. Attorneys Fred Lisius, of Crown Point, and Harold Hammond, of Hammond, who are representing the widow in the matter, are conferring with Deputy Prosecutor Floyd Draper today and preparing their case for presentation before Judge Kemp Tuesday in case the grand jury does not intervene. In the afternoon session of the inquest yesterday, the .widow furnished the most important testimony sinci the first, riay of the hearing with the possible exception of the statements of Drs. Eggers and Buchanan who expressed the belief that Bough met death from external violence. ' "' " '" :" . :' Mrs. Bough said she . visited her husband Sunday, September 28, and that he died the following Thursday.. He appeared very weak then and va3 lying In bed. H had a black lump over his left eye, but she made no injuiry about it. . Bough that day had .talked little. He complained that he had been griv-cn a bath in cold water and that "they almost froze" me to death." Early testimony on the part of Morgan had been that it was necessary to bathe Bough in cold water because the furnace t .the county farm wasn't in operation so there was no warm water. He also said he would like something to eat. The attendants had explained that Bough had refused food and that he was getting weaker steadily. She declared her husband had never been vfolent at home, but that he was forgetful. She had to work and she asked to have him taken to the state hospital because she was afraid he would wander away. ' Her belief that the two blackened eyes, tho marks on the throat, the split ear and other bruises were in flicted by some other person, was based on the fact that Bough was too weak to get out of bed and upon statements made by Morgan to friends who had accompanied her to the sanitarium. - In conversation with these people Morgan had remarked that Bough had fought against being bathed. J "He had a damned good beating coming and he got it," is the remark accredited to Morgan. This was the testimony taken the first day of the inquest. , Mrs. iiough says Morgan had a black jack in his pocket when she' saw him, but Morgan insists he never carried such a weapon. The wound on the dead man's ear appeared to have been made by such an instrument. Dr. A. H. Farley, who had been county physician only a mcth testi fled that he had seen Bough only once as he passed his cell. He was lying in bed. The day he died the death certificate was issued by him on information furnished at the san itarium. He did not examine the boiiy. He gave the cause of death as suicide accomplished by beating his head against the cell door. It was this point which caused Under-tatser Charles Stewart to hestitate. He knew a coroner's inquest was necessary. However, when he sent to Crown Point for the burial permit the cause of death was changed to "mitral regurgitation," which moans failure of the mitral valves between the left auricle and ventricle of the heart to function.
