I possible to come to headquarters at Indianapolis for instruction in having tho cards filled out. Mrs. Cook said. Women of Clarion county who are familiar with the work will aislst the reeistrstion committee; in giving' this instruction, which is expected' to "be tinder way before February 1. Th "fourteen mlnute speakers" can be of great assistance in the work, Mrs. Cook said. In Illinois. she said, 150 women speakers were sent through the stste before registration was started, and the speakers are still busy. 'The main Idea we must impress on women whom we are asking to irn the cards." Mrs. Cook said. "Is that service Is not compulsory.

In Chlcajro 33 volunteer workers were placed through this system in Deceitibrr, besides a great number of paid workers. The' registration has developed several tines of service which might not have been thought of otherwise. For instance, training classes are now being held there in lip reading in preparation for the return of the soldiers. French and Spanish classes are held under the direction of this department, and an employment bureau has been established ia connection with the offce" IL E. federal food admlnls trtor for Indiana, and J.

WAY BACK IN 50'S WETS AND DRYS WERE FUSSING OVER LAWS AND THE SUPREME COURT DECISIONS The Dandy Saloonkeeper of the Town Was Arrested and Was Hypothetically Put Into Jail Later Brining of Habeas Corpus $uit Which Was the Basis of a Test of Important Legislation But Later All Other Issues Were Overshadowed by Slavery Question. HAT Indiana bad "dry law sixty three year ago la a fact cf Wtlch many jthe present retv ration are sot aware. It has been referred to recently in con uection with the "iry law tbe 1SH Urlslature. which Is to take effect tn AoriL The dry law enacted In JS took effect June 12 of that year and was JCoTetnber i when i the auDreme court held It unensttttrtlanal Hlstorlana of temperance? legislation say tha law of ICS was fo ca there was a marked reduction of crime and a decrease to the pamber of Jail Inmates. When the lasr had been In effect one month there tad been so few arrests that the Indianapolis city co cD on July 12. 15 ordered the night watch reduced by one half. The 1S "dry prohtbrtwJ the manufacture and, sale tntoxlcatfcig lluora except for medicinal, chemical, mechanical and religious purpose, and created a system of eomiy agents to sell Intoxicants for such purposes. The lw grew but of a state wide temperance movement, which gained muoh momentum when the supreme court held "unconstitutional the Uw which forbade the sale of Intoxicants In less quantities than a grallou cnleas a tarrlty of the voter tn local units sales In less Quantities. Th' UZZ law also provided that liquor sellers must csre for Intoxicated persons until the were sober and mut par for any datnares committed. People's' Party Movement. The temperance movement, which resulted in the "dry legislation of 1856. was taken up by the People' party In ir tbe party that shortly developed Into the Republican party of Indiana It was a fusion msde tip of Whig, of Democrats opposed the Kansaa Kebraaka bUl and to the repeal of tbe Missouri compromise, of Know Noth ing, of Free Soller and of temperance orces, i The platform of th Feopie party of 1834 opposed the repeal of the Missouri compromise, and on the liquor question It said: "Resolved, that regard Intemper ance a a reat political, moral and social evil. 'a legitimate subject of legis lation and that we are In favor or the passage of a Judicious, Constitutional and efficient prohibitory law, with such penalties a shall effectually uppre traffic In Intoxicating liquor a a bev erage. The prohibition feature of the plat form wa regarded by Democratic leader of that time as a bait used by the Wbigs to win Democrats. It appears that there were many Democrat dissatisfied with the stand their party had taken on the liquor question, as well as wth the repeal of the Missouri compromise and the enactment the Kansas Nebraska, law, which opened the way to the Introduction of slavery In new northern Oliver P. Morton, afterward Indiana's war Governor, left the Democratic party and joined In the fusion that mad the Feopie'. party. Revolt at Greenaburg. At the Democratlo county convention Creeneburr the "anti Nebraska" Democrats bolted and resolved that the plank of the Democratlo state convention had been put through by "demagogues, slaveholder and whisky politicians A call wa issued for a meeting of Hendricks county Democrat opposed to the repeal of the Missouri compromise. This, call said a packed Democratlo state convention had attempted to bind us to the slave driver of the south and the rum seller of the north." The Democratic state convention had adopted a plank as follows: Resolved. That wo are opposed to any law that will authorize the searching for, or seizure, confiscation and destruction of private property." Tbla plank had reference to th demand of temperance force that a law Authorizing: auch steps for the suppression of the. liquor traffic bo enacted. Revolt among Democrats similar to those In Hendricks and Decatur counties took' place In many other parts of the state. The fusion movement profited. Sixty eig ht citiren of Floyd. Parke. Ripley and Dearborn counties a call for a convention to be held in Indianapolis July 13. 1SS4, to oppose the Democratic state platform. 1 Of the fcixty eight all were Democrats except seventeen Whigs and two free sollers. jTrom the various resolutions and calls It appears that tho insurgents were hos tile to the repeal of the Missouri com. romisa and were In favor of prohibiten. Met on Courthouse The dale of the convention in Indiana police, July 13, 1S5 was the anniversary of the passage of the ordinance of 17CT "consecrating the Northwest Territory to freedom." The convention, which met on th courthouse lawn, was called to order by J. P. Chapman, of Marion county. Thomas H. Smith, of Ripley county, was elected president. The main planks of the platform adopted by this convention, which organized the People' party, have already been referred to. A state ticket waa nominated on which were three former Democrats and two former Wing. The Democratlo organization, which was opposed to introducing ttie Main law in Indiana, contended that the Know Nothing, or American party, dictated the ticket, but this was denied. The Rev. T.A Goodwin, in his book. "Seventy six Tears' Tussle With th Uquor Traffic," says th Know' Nothing were attracted to the new party because most of the innkeepers and saloon keepers were foreigners. The Know Nothings, be says, Uked th temperance plank largely for that reason. It is an interesting fact that the People's party in ISoi. besides reaffirming: planks of the 1804 platform, rcsclved that "the franchise be limited to native or naturalized citizens of the United State." This was pleasing to the American" party element in tbe fusion movement. Dry" Bill la Passed. The People party state ticket of ISSi. headed by the candidate for sec 4 retary of state, won by a majority of K.Cl As a result of the election and the political affiliation of holdovers the state senate of 1S35 had twenty six Democrats and twenty four Fusion is ts or People's party men. The house had forty three Democrats and fifty seven Fuslonlsts. The legislature passed the "dry" bill, the vote in the senate being ts to 13, seven Democrats voting" for the MIL The vote in the house was 6 for the bill and 43 against. While the dry bill was put through by the Fuslonlsts. Governor Wright, a Democrat, aimed It, saying that he found nothing unconstitutional in it. A great throne of temperance forces had gathered In Indianapolis In anticipation of passage of the "dry" bilL They could not all get Into the old slate bouse and the crowd, in the yard north of the capitol fired cannon to celebrate the victory. Tbe 1917 "dry" law is being sttacked by an' tnjunctlcn proceeding in Vander burg ctpunty. The 1355 Uw was cot at tacked la the courts until after It tad taken effect Jtme ZZ. cf that year. But th Pr. T. A. Goodwin. In hi book, relate that plan for a court test bad been perfected and argument were In readiness by the time the law took effect. Rhoderlck Bee be. described aa the tony saloon keeper ef Indianapolis, openly manufactured and sold beer In pursuance ef a program for a test case. lie arrested and was fined SS9 by th mayor. He refused to pay and wa "hypothetca2y' committed to a 0. lie sued for a writ of habeas corpus la the Marlon oourt of common ptaaa. which sustained th law. An appeal wa taken to the upreme court. The Rev. T. A. Goodwin say la his book: i "It was imMsummer and the court had taken1 a recess for it summer vacation, but swift messenxers were dispatched and the court was brought together In less then a week. On the Sth all were In the city and on the 9th. ef July they were listening to th arguments which had been for five month preparing; on the part of the traffic, while the counsel for the state had to take bold ef the rew question with but a few days The state asked for time to prepare ergumenta. and th supreme court adjourned till the November terra. Political pressure then developed In favor, of an esrly decision to remove the uncertainty. The Rev. Mr. Goodwin says Judge Perkins asked his colleagues to meet him August 23 to decide tha case, but Judges Goodkins and Stuart refused to come to Indianapolis on the ground that Judge Perkins had no right to make such a call. i On tha night of November 7. a young fellow named Herman employed by a saJoon in the Bates house, openly violated the "dry" law. was arrested and fined and on refusing to pay was sent to Jail. He sued for a writ ef habeas corpus, which waa Issued by Judge Perkins, who held the law void and released Herman. Judge Perkins afterward wrote an opinion In the case, which wss submitted on the arguments In the Bee be esse at the suggestion of attorneys for Herman and with the consent of attorneys for the state. Freo Whisky Regime. The overthrow of the law was widely celebrated by the "wet" forces, and for three year there was a "free whisky" regime; time when there was no effective regulation of the Uquor traffic Although the platform of the People's party declared for prohibition, the Rev. Mr. Goodwin says "that was the last of It It was not once mentioned In th discussions of th campaign." The slavery Issue overshadowed all other i An interesting sidelight on the politics of that time Is stand taken by the People's party axalnst voTlng by alien. Tbe 1SS1 Constitution, which Is still In force today, gave the vote to alien who had declared their Intention to become citizens. The constitutional provision was an appeal to the foreign element ef the state, which was considerable. The People's party, which had declared tn Its platform of that the franchise be limited to "native or uralized citizens of the United States." adopted a plank at the state convention of 15a aa follows: "P.eolved. That we are In favor of the naturalization laws ef oongTesa with tbe five years probation, and that the right of average should accompany and not precede naturalization, Milder Than Thlswarr a bit milder than the prevision ot th 13 platform. Charles Zimmerman, who ha an article In the September Indiana Magazine of History I on the fusion movement that resulted In the Republican party, says the plank Of was designed to satisfy both the German and the Know Nothing. "The Germans, had declared they would not support the Republican party unless it went on record as opposed to any change In the naturalization laws. Tbe Know Nothings were opposed to permitting any other than nativa or naturalized citizens to vote. They were opposed to the provision of the 1S1 Constitution. The German population at that lime was large enough to cause the politicians to "sit up and take notice." Mr. Zimmerman says Germans who came to this country berore 1S48 were chiefly Democrats, while those who came as the result of the revolution of 1S. believed in freedom, and because ot the slavery question, as presented In the Kansas Nebraska bill, leaned to the Republican party. The Germans did not llko the amendment to the Kansas Nebraska bill which said aliens could not vote or hold office in those territories. At the People's party convention of Oliver P. Morton, who was nominated for Governor, said Kansas should be admitted to the Union Immediately a a free state and he denied the right of sny foreigner to vote before naturaUra tlon. Slavery the Bio lsu. Th" prohibition Issue, though. Included In th 185 platf orm of the People' party, lost Interest In the, midst of the slavery agitation, and while there waa locas option and other legislation regulating the liquor traffic in later years, it wa not until a comparatively recent time that the "dry" forces retrained what they lost by th decision of the supreme court overthrowing: the act ot 1S66 a decision by a divided court. The "dry" force of th state have long contended that there waa trickery In the methods bv which the test case was submitted in 1S55. and they refer to the reasoning of Judge Perkins' opinion as on of th Judicial curiosities of a day gone by.

While the Nev York World calls Fuel Commissioner Garfield's conservation order the "greatest disaster that has befallen the United States in this war," and other journals are equally 'emphatic in condemning it, many other American newspapers view the action with tolerance, as being a necessary War measure, the Boston Herald declaring that "we should not criticize military orders no matter how needlessly sweeping they seem, in the same spirit we approach these provisions for the conservation of pur resources." "The port of New York is part of the battle line," says Public Service Commissioner, Whitney, of New York, in the Times, "and the people should realize this as clearly as if the battle line lay in the Connecticut Valley.
