PARTY RESPONSIBILITY As long as we are to have "party responsibility" in the conduct of public business, honorable and responsible public officials must be elected. The rank and file of all political parties earnestly desire party pledges carried out. There, was a time when party regularity was a virtue, and one who voted a mixed ticket, or deserted his party was regarded in the light of a traitor. That time has passed forever, and today every good citizen not only looks at the party platform, but they seek to find out whether the candidates are both capable and honest. In the Hanly administration of the state graft was found , in the state house. But Governor Hanly was one of the first to discover it, and was one of the first to press action for the re - m6val of the offenders. Then came the McCray regime. Politicians made great effort to save the Governor from prosecution, but the fire became too hot, and the result of that situation is known to all There must be more respect in this state for the McCray ad ministration than there is for the present state administration. Unfortunately the people did not clean house following the McCray administration. The same political bosses are today back of ' the Jackson - administration that were back of the McCray administration. , How many of the Republican state political leaders and candidates have come out for a full, complete and open investigation of the charges being hurled at the present regime? Not one, to our knowledge. Every effort is bent on suppressing facts. The man who is reported to be in possession of sufficient facts to send several prominent men to the penitentiary is guarded closely, to ; make sure that he not talk with other than members of the state N official family. Why. this deep secrecy? If Ed Jackson, United - States Senators Robinson and Watson, and other state officials are really entirely free from taint, as charged, why should they not have long ago demanded the fullest investigation? And it free, it would be but natural that they would insist on an open . investigation. Instead of Clyde Walb, Republican state chairman, reading a Republican newspaper out of the party on the ground that it no longer gives support to Republican officials charged with crime, he should have demanded that Ed Jackson, Senators Robinson and Watson, Mayor Duvall, Republican mayor of Indianapolis, and other state officials resign from office. - That Bort of action would have been proof conclusive that Mr. Walb recognize the real meaning of party responsibility, It seems that Walb can only understand that parties are in existence for - the lone purpose of permitting cheap, trashy politicians to hold public office and iraw on public funds paid in by an overburdened and highly taxed w atizenship. - LOCAL INSTITUTIONS In a lengthy article appearing recently in The Press, it was pointed out that as time goes on the newspaper industry will be - , come, industrialized. This is, the writers of that article were of the opinion that the day of personal ownership of newspapers will before long come to an end. As the article sets out, almost daily the cost of publishing a newspaper is increasing. Long ago one could start a newspaper on a amount of money would not pay newspaper department in a smau piant. The public is' demanding greater news, service from thehefrs papers. The news must be complete, and it must be' accurate. In national events, the service must wait lor the final results in baseball series. We must have it served to us play by play, within The day of industrialization rapidly approaching. Steps in that inrougnout tne country. Jtsut one And that is the close linking of ttustnai and political progress of newspaper, no matter how large Even the New York and Chicago Their - pages are full of purely local matters, not particularly interesting to other towns and cities. Papers published in the smaller cities carry fully as much world news as do .the metro politan papers. Everybody is interested in world events, such "as found in the Associated Press dispatches. And each community is vitally interested in the news of that particular community. Thomas Adams can scarcely expect much aid from President Coolidge in the former's effort to get at the bottom of corruption in high places. Mr. Coolidge had to be given a dose of chloroform before he would act in the matter of Fall, Daugherty and others of the national administration. - Abe Martin Says: (Copyright John Dins Co.)

Preparations THAT AYENUf Pygmies Still Bold Interest of the World ; WASHINGTON,, D. C., Oct. 23. "For" more . than 5,000 years Pygmies hare been known to exist, yet the recent discovery of a new. tribe of these human dwarfs in Dutch New Kulnea renews interest in them," aaya a - bulletin from the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the National Georgraphic Society. "Pygmy peoples are distributed over wide areas including the Philippines, which ' are inhabited by the' largest groups; the Andaman Islands of the Boy of Bengal; New Guinea; the interior of the Malay Teninsula ; and the Congo regions of Africa. With few exceptions they are similar in characteristics. "The smallest Pygmies are those , of Africa, where the men seldom rw more than 4 1 - 2 feet tell and the women reach only 3 1 - 2 feet. If one imagines an eight - year old southern 'piccaninny'.' with a well - formed, muscular body,x a mouth reacning from the center of each cheek, a flattened nose, a protruding upper jaw and a slanting forehead which gives him an apish appearance, and having a ma - Uure expression, then one nas a mencai picture of a Pygmy man. "Many of these little fellows live so much like monkeys that they have been suspected of being the 'missing link.' They look upon any kind of work with scorn and a hoe or any other instrument of agriculture would be a curiosity to them. "Wild fruits, nuts,' tender shoots and various roots are favorites in their diet, and, for meat they go hunting. Birds and 'small game are fodd staples, with occasional delicacies such as elephants, rats and caterpillars. "Modern landlords would become bank rupt in'Pygmyland. Many of the tribes remain in one place .only a ween or two, then, when they: sources of easy - gotten food are exhausted they move on to an other region. There tbey stay until the choice roots and fruits are consumed, and the birds and wild game are scared away 'by their arrows. The number of children is relatively small for so primitive a people, and there - is nothing lost in leaving a twig - built hut with a leafy roof. Thejr baggage is mostly bows and arrows. 'The Pygmies, unlike their neighbor tribes, usually have no chiefs, though they often rally around a superior hunts man as a leader. Formal laws are unknown among them but they follow strict moral codes. Fighting is seldom noted, and murders are few. When a murder is committed in a Pygmy village there is no trial, but the murderer risks being killed from ambush by his victim's next - of - kin. Explorers attest that lying and steal ing are uncommon among the little people and tribes which do not usually, trust fellow tribesmen are so impressed 'with Pygmy honesty that the Pygmy often be comes a cattle tender for his taller neigh bors. "When the young Pygmy'rfancy turns to love he begins to count his arrows, for marriage in rygmyland is a matter ot bargaining between the girl's (ather and the diminutive swain. "In some triDes tne lixea price tor a ..... . - . ' . r wife is from ten to fifteen arrows, but if the, prospective bridgegroom, appears over enthusiastic the cost may be increased by one or, two spears or some tobacco, After the ceremony toe husband goes hunting and the wife goes to work. "A red letter .day is celebrated among African Pygmies when an elephant is killed. When they smell an elephant in the vicinity of their encampment the whole tribe is called Into, action." "Bey climb trees in the path they believe the animal will take. Then, jumping from limb to limb, the hunters spear the ani mal, and by lo doing cause him to collide with trees, thus virtually - making him commit suicide. v' - "Once assured the elephant can do them no harm they swarm over him like ants" and cut away his flesh for food. They have no way of preserving the flesh so they are apt to hover about the car case until notntng but , tne skeleton remains. Tusks are bidden to be traded for tobacco and salt, which, are among the few Pygmy luxuries.". - - COMPLETE CONCRETE. V t " v Within nine days, the laying of concrete for the Tri - Lake Construction company's part of the state highway No. 0 paving will . be complete. A change of plans by the state highway commission, caUing for a further cut ot three feet sooth of Loon creek will cause some delay and .necessitate moving the steam shovel to Loon creek again, but in spite of this delay, it is believed the concrete will be completed by a week from Monday or a week from Tuesday. HEARS ARGUMENT. Judge Kenner yesterday heard argument in the suit of the Industrial Center Land company .against, Louis G.

Small, better known as ".Seamark" the novelist has contributed, several dramatic sketches at the Little Tbearre lately that received favorable comment, Small ran away and went to sea at 13. He rode freight' trains from New York to the West, where he earned his living singing in ranch houses and mining saloons. Drifting South, he worked aa a cook. One day he met Jack London and told him of a few of his adventures. "Buy a pen and write them," London said. He did.

Beckoning up not long, ago the number I heard in the bouse of commons, I came to the conclusion that it, was 50,000. I am not anxious, therefore," to add to the number or listen to myself."

The results disappointed them. And now it Is more difficult to get women to express their preference in the primaries than men and they prefer to go to a' party on election day than to the polls. Like the men, they 'have a jazz complex and unless something furnishes a new kind of thrill, they pass it up." Legion Blea See Evil TbeXegion men, at their recent conven tion, discussed the fact that when it eomes to voting a majority of the quali fied .voters are slackers.

This after "observing with alarm" that only 50 per cent of eligible votera take part in our elections. The Legion tried by song and speech to emphasise a truth ottered by President Coolidge in a letter in which he declared : We cannot retain our liberties und?r our representktire form of government if we do not keep it representative.
