The iu Klux Klan issue was raised' to a new r agnitude in the presidential campaign tod;iy as the result of the action of John W. Davis, Democratic nominee, in demanding that President Cooliilge publicly condemn the hooded organization. - Davis drew an anti-Klan cloak tightly around his own candidacy In Hit address hero in which he again denounced the Klan by name, he went further, however, than in his original anti-Klan speech at Seagirt, N. J., by challenging the president to Issue a similar denunciation in answer to a heckler. The Davis managers looked upon this latest development as urn: of tremendous political effect. They maintained that the electoral votes of 5 state New York, New Jersey, Indiana. Ohio and Illinois enouph to determine the electiqn, hung in the balance. If the president declined to reply to Davis, they contended, the Democratic nominee would sweep all five states, to win the presidency by a victory of landslide proportions.

It is not a question of whether our institutions are perfect; the most fcenefic-ent of our institutions had their beginnings in forms which would be particu'arly odious to us now. In spite of polica restriction1? against the promiscous sle of life-arms it is said that Hammond is a sort of munitions for the battling Chinnnien who are putting on Chicago's latent tong war. In Hammond it is the rule that no dealer is to Eel! a revolver unless the customer has a permit from th- police department. Thus the police are supposed to have a record of all gun sales. But the rumor !s frequently heard that there is at least one place in Hammond where k""s may be purchased without the formality of the permit. Chicago police have been trying to disarm the warring faction of Chinamen and efforts nrc being made at tracing their source of supply. Any Chinaman entering: Chicago is "'risked" for weapons so it is very difficult to carry them into the city. However, it is said .oat by coming' to Hammond tne tong representatives are able to purchase guns and ship them by express, thus evading tho .watchful eye of the Chicago cops. . While the few CbUiese. of Hammond would not be interested In ChicaaVs tong arfarfTftteQ Said that Considerable uneasiness exists nd that several of the local boys have received threats because of their efforts to keep out of the Chicago mess.

HEN for GOMMERCE MEETING The last of the series of U;nen meetings wlich have been held this week under the auspices of the Eat Chicago Chamber. of Commerce or, Hired yesterday, with John C. Horn acting us host. The same program was followed throughout, and as a tesult of these there are pledged !oi active committee work next week nearly a hundred of the city's leading business and professional men.. Today, a joint meeting of the officers, directors and finance committee of the Chamber of Commerce, and of the members of the Citizens' committee' was held at the iljtel Calumet for the purpose of reviewing the progress of the movement to date, and completeing' arrangements (or the active program arranged for next week. The "Program of Progress," outlining the aims end purposes of the organization during the next few years; was given final approval, and will reach all who are to be invited to join the Chnhber of Commerce in Monday morning's mail. Tbe program describes briefly th.-kind of organization adopted fo this city, outlines the divisions work, cr departments, and th departments, and the method of op eration through committees. Man of rthe activities which it is pr posed to inaugurate during the P.r year are catalogued, and altoge'he; it is a document calculatd to attiact the attention and hold the interest of thofe who believe !n organized effort to guide and promote the communitw interests. iT.or. r. G. II OLD EX. A feature that' will undoubtedly appeal is the provision for a members' forum, which h-is proved so popular In other cities in which there are successful Chambers of Commerce. These regular members meetings are especially helpful in stimulating tps community spirit. Th& plans for Civic Sunday were reviewed, and the response from the clergymen of the city was found most gratifying- A souvenir of the day will be distributed at the churches that have special civic services. s The program for the "Get-Together" dinner on Monhay evening, the 20th, was completed. President Lewis announced that Judge Maurice K. Crites would serve as toist-master at the dinner, and that Prof. P. G. Holden, of Chicago, would be the principal speaker, taking as his subject, "Building a City." Prcf. Holden has a national reputation as I a speaker on community subjects. When tho International Harvester company wanted a director for their agricultural extension department, it looked in the direction of Iowa, and found Prof. Holden who was then director of the extension department of the Iowa State Agricultural college. He believes in anything that means better homes, better communities and better farming. His message Is peculiarly applicable to East Chicago. His addresses are inspiring as well as entertaining. It was ttated that Mayor Cn'Ia-han, who has taken a lively interest In the movement, had agreed to respond to a toast t" "The City," coming direct to the meet'ng after Pdjournment of the common council. In that connection, it was announced that about half the to'.al accommodations of 200 had already been taken, and those present were advised to pass the word among their friends that prompt action would be necessary to insure a seat. The committees that are to make the visitations next week will start ontheir rounds the morning after the dinner. The general sentiment I of these attending the meeting was one of great confidence that the city is to have at last the kind of Chamber of Commerce that the sir.e and Importance of East Chicago warrants.

General New Who Speaks In Hammond Tonight HARRY t rSPECIAL TO THE TIMES1 " " VAtKA It A ISO, Did., Oct .17. The state of Indiana is making a third attempt today to-get a jury to try-John O'Malley and Frr.nk McCabe for the murder . of Thad Fancher, Crown Point attorney. Yesterday the -selection of a lury was progressing nicely when counsel for O'Mi'.Uey and McCabe threw a monkey wrench into the machinery. They discovered that Porter county had neglected to reappoint he commissioners who draw the jury. The law provides that the commissioners are to be appointed each year and the r.ppointment spread upon the records. Tho fact is that Porter county has appointed commissioners for five years and the 01 GRAND! ASK W BENNETT tSPECIAL TO THE TfWES WHITING, Ind., Oct. 17 "Plear.e reserve the Davenport on the right hand corner of the Mezzanine for tonight." "Very sorry, but we haven't a Davenport left for jonight. XVould stats do?" "Aw shucks, well, I suppose so." The girl in the box office nt the Hoosier theater hand's up with a sigh. .If there were only mere davenports in the theater, how- much more pleasant her job would be." In tho old days a theater manager dreamed of a house with every seat on the ails?. Eut not Miss Margaret Bennett, owner' and manager of the Hoosier theater. When Miss Bennett lays her mar-oiled head on the billowy pillow at night she dreams of a theater of davenports and dark corners. It wasn't intention when she built the beautiful Hoosier theater to make the mezzanine floor as oasis for Sheiks and The davenports were orglnally a matter of ornamen'ation and Miss Bennett did not presume they would be occupied except before and after the performance or when all seats were sold. And the soft lights in the mezzanine floor were a matter of artistic effect. f The mezzanine floor which is at the back of the house and rather cha:iow with a limited seating capacity at once became the most popular section of the theater and has remained so ever since. A reporter looked them over the other evening. There they were, cooing, and billinr, the Shobas resting their pretty heads on the' shoulders of the Sheiks and watching the. ten acts of vaudeville in perfect contentment. Miss Bennett doesn't know what to do about it. She can't very well tear out the seats on the main floor and put in davenports and she can not get any more on the mezzanine. "Do you know," declared Miss Bennett, "there's a lot of married couples go up there and spoon. Don't tell me there is no romance in this world." The telephone in the box office rang. "So sorry," said the girl, "but the davenports are all gone for tonight. I can let you ' have one for Sunday' evening." ' Sensation In Murder :','A ANT S. NEW Valparaiso oldones have been functioning just the same. Whether, this discovery will be basis for appeal for new trial in all jury cases tried in Porter county in the past four years is a matter of speculation. The discovery created a sensation in the courthouse among the members of the bench and bar. Although counsel for the bandits who killed Fancher have gained nothing except delay by their tactics it is evilent the case is to be bitterly contested. It is expected that the trial will beg!n Monday with XV. J. McAleer. of Hammond, representing the state as special prosecutor. AT WHITING WHITING, Oct. 17. State Senator i Van Orman, republican party can- i j didate for lieutenant-governor of Indiana, will be welcomed to Wbit- ! ing tomorrow evening by an old- fashioned republican rally. The speaking will take place at Sloven-ski Dom. Local and county party campaigners are figuring on "big doin's" at the meeting hall and plan on putting the meeting over in the good, old-fashioned way. The senator will be met by a parade headed by a band and the line of march will take the procession down 119th street to the Dom. Red fire, torchlights and biarins auto horns will compete in welcoming the lieutenant-governor nominee to X"hiting and State Senator Nedji will talk following the speech of the evening by Ed Jackson's running mate. County chairman of the republican party, Oliver Starr, will, preside at the meeting. State Senator X'an Orman, who lives at Evansville, has served in the state senate for several years and has taken a leadnig paft in state and national politics. lie is a forceful talker and has a reputation for straight-forward speaking. The meeting will be called to or- der by Chairman Starr at 7:30 p.m. at the Slovenski Dom. NEGRO FACES DER CHARGE William Perry, colored, who was arrested early yesterday morning at his home. 503 Fields avenue. Hammond, following the stabbing of Will Hurley, also colored, will probably face a charge of murder. At the hospital yesterday it was first believed that the three knife wounds in Hurley's chest, would not prove fatal but his condition I has becomo worse and this morning it was believed he would live only a few hours. Hammond police took Perry to the hospital to be identified by his victim and at the same time took Hurley's statement bearing upon the fight. Perry claims that Hurley took $23 from him and the fight started when f.e demanded its return. M HAN AT ORPHEll THEATRE Friend of Harding and Cool-idge Will Answer Some Charges Harry S. New, postmaster general and former republican senator trom Indiana, will probably twist the bobcat's tail and answer some of the democratic charges against the G. O. P. in his address tonight under the auspices of the Young Men's Republican club at the Orpheum theatre, Hammond. ; The hall will undoubtedly be packed tonight at 8 o'clock when Chairman Virgil XVhitaker, "of the club, opens the meeting and Introduces the speakers. New has long been a picturesque figure In national politics, and he is known as one of the ablest party leaders, Jha Hoosier state has sent to the capital in years. A close friend of Pres-'dent Warren G. Harding, he has maintained his close connection .vith the executive branch of government since Coolidge took the office, end he is, like Frank Monde!!, one of the mouthpieces of the republican campaign. There la no doubt tbat New will appear In person tonight. The unavoidable failure of Mondell to appear disappointed many, but this will not happen tonight as the New date hps been set for a long time. An additional treat on the program is an address from Mrs. Geo. Jolly McMahon. member of the republican central committee of Richland county, Illinois. She i3 dne of the best known and'most active woman workers In the country, and she has been secured for the Ham rr.ond meetlngr for the benefit of tb ladies who take an active Interest In politics. Besides being a member , of the central committee of her county, Mrs. -McMahon was elected com'mittcewoman from the first precinct of Olney, III. She Is now serving as secretary of the committee.
