   INDIANAPOLIS, March 24. -- Three public officials of Terre Haute, who are among the 28 defendants in the election fraud case on trial in the U. S. court here, are in the custody of the marshal today. Judge Anderson late yesterday handed them over because of alleged tampering with government witnesses.
   If he hears of any more attempts to reach witnesses, he will jug the other 25, the Judge declared.
   "There is some law in this country; I want to teach you gentlemen that fact," he told them.
   During the afternoon several witnesses, six of whom have pleaded guilty in the election fraud case, let it be known that they had been arrested on various minor charges in Vigo county, where Terre Haute is situated. Some of the prisoners had been in solitary confinement and a small-pox quarantine had been placed on the Jail. The U.S. attorney said he did not know "if the health office was mixed up in this dirty mess."
   Uncle Sam is conducting the obsequies over the earthly remains of our disreputable fellow countryman, Gang Elections, last of the strong-arm clan.
   The members of a U.S. grand jury will act as pall bearers. The chief mourners will be Mayor Donn M. Roberts, Judge Eli Redman, Sheriff Dennis Shea, former Chief of Police Edward Holler and 112 other prominent and near prominent citizens of Terre Haute, Ind.
   The time and place of burial will be announced later by Judge A.B. Anderson, but it is believed that interment will be in the famous federal mausoleum at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Please omit flowers. 
      In Terre Haute the word politics suggests polecats. There they played the game in the good old-fashioned way,   cracked skulls, illegal registration — vacant lots, monuments and chicken coops had their votes—and Czar Roberts    ruled with an iron hand.
   But now its a tamed crew of municipal monarchists who are facing Judge Anderson. The 88 who have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States government in the election of a senator and congressmen are thoroughly frightened and gladly testify against the 26 who, led by Mayor Roberts, have pleaded not guilty, and are being defended by Congressman A. O. Stanley of Kentucky.
They Tell the Truth.
   These hard-looking rivermen from the famous banks of the Wabash who did the dirty work, attired In flannel shirts and corduroy trousers, climb into the witness chair and tell the TRUTH! Telling anything else under the cool, stern gaze of Judge Anderson is unimaginable.
      Voters were kidnaped in the police patrol and literally clubbed to the polls, cheap prize fighters were imported from Indianapolis to "get" the recalcitrants. One unnaturalized Canadian, a resident of this country one month, voted 8 or 10 times for the straight democratic ticket!
      "I am confident that conviction will be obtained in every instance," declares District Attorney Daley.
      "You must be saving the crowd for a special train to Fort Leavenworth," it was suggested.
      "Two special trains," Dalley corrected, laughingly.
   A policeman testified that Hilton Redman, son of Ell Redman, the circuit Judge who was elected by ten votes, and chief field marshal for Roberts, came into the police station to sleep, turning over for safe keeping $500 in small bills and two revolvers! Further testimony indicates that all gangsters carried firearms on election day.
   Congressman Stanley, on cross examination, questioned the policeman concerning the fact that Judges and clerks of election carried pistols, with the idea, apparently, of throwing the blame on the officials.
      "I will hold that the men watching the machines had a right to have arms," interposed [United States District Court] Judge Anderson. "They should have curried more arms than they had." ....

People Arm Themselves as Result of Police Inefficiency.
   Columbus, 0., Feb. 9. Columbus is enjoying a reign of terror all of its own and citizens are arming themselves as protection against burglars and hold-up men, who operate in all sections of the city with apparent immunity from interference on the part of the local police. Within the past 30 days there have been in hold-ups, one of which resulted fatally to the victim, and 38 burglaries. in which there has not been a single arrest.
   Following criticism on the methods employed by the police department made by the local press, Chief Carter has established a strict censorship on all news at the city prison, and is upheld In his action by Mayor Marshall. As a result newspapers are obliged to obtain their news of a criminal nature from outside sources, which has raised a howl of protest from leading business men and citizens generally, who argue that the public is entitled to know just what the city guardians are doing to suppress the reign of lawlessness.
   National Guard officers stationed here are apprehensive over the turn of affairs, believing that the indiscriminate carrying of firearms by the citizens will result in a serious condition and may mean a possible riot and bloodshed.

"A mob of probably 250 people had gathered. Most of them were armed...."

Mob Besieges Lyinig-in Hospital and
Terrible Scene Follows.
Hospital Burned to the Ground and
Desperate Occupants Driven
To a Thicket Yield Only
After Being shot.
   Gilman, Ills., Aug. 27. Two men killed, three wounded two of them perhaps fatally, one woman wounded, and her residence burned, are the results of an all-night battle between a mob and Mrs. C. W. Wright, who keeps a lying-in hospital and who is accused of the murder of Dessie Salter, the 16-year-old daughter of a citizen of Leonard, Ill., who died at the hospital Friday.
   The dead are John Myers, laborer, employed by Mrs. Wright, and Michael Ryan, citizen, serving as deputy constable.
   Fatally wounded: Lawrence Ryan, brother of the dead man, shot in abdomen; George Willoughby, citizen, shot through left lung; Mrs. Wright, shot through right shoulder, bullet taking a downward course.
   Seriously wounded: Peter Bauer, member of the citizens' attacking party, shot through the stomach.
   The first act of the tragedy was enacted when Constable Milstead went to the house on the outskirts of the town, occupied by Mrs. Wright, to arrest her on a warrant sworn out after the coroner's jury had declared her guilty of murder. A number of deputies gathered upon the street, accompanied Constable Milstead. Mrs. Wright barred the door. In forcing an entrance the constables encountered unexpected opposition. They broke the outer door open and entered the darkened room. Michael Ryan felt his way across the first room to the inner apartment, when a shot rang out and he fell dead. The constables made a hurried exit, and formed a picket line around the building. At intervals they fired into the building in the hope that the occupants would surrender, but without success. An
attempt to fire the building failed as recent rains had so dampened the timbers that fire would not catch.
   About 3 a. m. the family of Michael Ryan arrived. The dead man had been carried to the bushes near the house, where he met his death. A mob of probably 250 people had gathered. Most of them were armed. The scenes of grief which followed the arrival of Ryan's wife and children fired the crowd with frenzy. Dozens of bundles of straw, saturated with petroleum were piled against the front and sides of the so-called hospital and ignited. In a moment the place was a mass of flames. Shot after shot rang out from the upper windows and George Willoughby, a local represntative of the Standard Oil company, fell with a bullet in the left side. The next victim was Peter Hauer, a member of the attacking party. These casualties so angered the crowd that volleys were fired into the house as fast as they could load their firearms.
Escaped From the Flames.
   Contrary to expectation no screams followed the progress of the flames and the mob began to think that the Inmates of the building had been cremated. Suddenly, from a bunch of timber in the rear several shots came in the direction of the mob, which were answered a hundred to one and tho fire was quickly silenced. Members of the mob rushed to the timber and in the dim light of the coming dawn, found the body of John Myers, a blacksmith, who had been employed by Mrs. Wright, stretched in the death agony. He was shot in a dozen places about the head and shoulders, showing that he had been lying on his face, firing at his enemies when he met death. Near by lay Mrs. Wright, a ragged hole in her right shoulder.
   The rioters carried her down town, jeering as they went. She was taken to the council chamber and physicians set to work in an endeavor to bring her to consciousness.
   After Mrs. Wright was taken to the city hall, a strong guard was placed over her. A crowd soon assembled and threats of lynching were uttered. Every effort was made to quiet and disperse the mob, but at 9.30 a.m. the mob made another demonstration, smashing in the windows with stones and clubs. This culminated in a shot being fired through the window by one of the mob barely missing the woman. Officers finally restored order.
   Mrs. Wright was taken by Sheriff Martin to Paxton at noon by rail and will be taken to the Watseka Jail. The mob became more quiet during the afternoon. No further demonstration is feared in Gilman. It is rumored the mob will attack the Watseka Jail.
   The investigation of the coroner's Jury into the death of Bessie Salter disclosed that her body was taken to Leonard, Ills., under cover of darkness early Sunday morning. No coffin was procured and she was wrapped up in an old blanket and piece of carpet and burled. After the jury had heard the evidence of Clarence Salter, father of the girl, the coroner came to the conclusion that it was injudicious to wait longer for Mrs. Wright's arrest.
   The coroner's jury immediately took up the case of John Myers, but no evidence has been given to disclose who fired the shot that killed him.

The Removal of Revenue Tax
from Alcohol Will Stimulate Industries.

    A measure introduced in the house of representatives by Mr. Marshall of North Dakota has for its purpose the removal of the internal revenue tax on alcohol, and its passage is of vast importance, especially to such agricultural states as Minnesota. Not only will it benefit the farmer who produces the raw material from which alcohol is made, but it will contribute to his further advantage in a cheap and safe motive power for use on the farm as well as light and heat for his home.

    At present alcohol for beverages and industrial alcohol are subject to a tax of more than $2 a gallon. Industrial alcohol, according to the department of agriculture, could be sold profitably, were there no tax on it, for about fifteen cents a gallon and under the increased demand that would be sure to follow, it is possible it could be sold profitably for 10 cents a gallon.

    The use of Alcohol as an industrial material figures prominently in the manufacture of nearly one hundred different articles. These range from articles of household use and necessity to electrical machinery, ammunition and firearms.

    Take the item of soap, for instance. Alcohol is used in the manufacture of soap, as a solvent for clarifying. Transparent soap is made by mixing fat and soda to form a soap mixture in the usual way. Alcohol is then added and an emulsion formed by violent agitation, thus bringing the alcohol into contact with every particle of the soap. The alcohol is then allowed to evaporate and the now transparent soap is run into moulds and pressed into the shapes in which it is sold.

    The sales of transparent soap thru-out the world are enormous, the annual sales of one foreign manufacturer in the United States alone being about 14,400,000 cakes. Very little is made in this country owing to the fact that the manufacture is increased over $5 a gross on account of the internal revenue tax of $2.07 per gallon on alcohol.

    What is true of soap is in a large measure true of smokeless powder. The weight of alcohol required in making the best smokeless powder is 1.4 times the weight of the finished powder. The internal revenue on this alcohol is $2.08 a gallon, making the tax on the quantity necessary to use in making a pound of the best smokeless powder 37 cents. The result is that the sportsman must either be satisfied to use an inferior powder, with the danger of excessive fouling and corroding, or pay an excessive price for the best.

    The government secures the best powder for the army and navy at the lowest price allowing the manufacturers to use tax-free alcohol in manufacturing powder for government account. For all other parties tax paid alcohol must be used.

    The importance of cheap alcohol is now so well appreciated in Europe that in all of the leading countries exhibitions to promote its industrial uses are held annually. In a special report on the exposition held in Berlin, United States Consul-General F.H. Mason referred to the use of alcohol for lighting and heating and other domestic purposes as follows:

    "The department of lighting and heating apparatus includes a vast and varied display of lamps, chandeliers, street and corridor lights, in which alcohol vapor burns with an incandescent flame which rivals arc lights in brilliancy and requires to be shaded to adapt it to the endurance of the human eye. There has been a great improvement in the lamps and chandeliers for alcohol lighting, which are up to the best standard of modern fixtures for gas and electricity, with which alcohol lighting is now competing with increased success in this country.

    "The ordinary shade lamp for everyday use is made of bronze with white porcelain shade and costs from $1.50 to $2.50, according to size and design, giving a light of 30 candles at a cost for alcohol of one-third of one cent an hour.

    "Similarly attractive and interesting is the large display of alcohol heating stores, which, for warming corridors, sleeping rooms and certain other locations are highly esteemed. They are made of Japanned iron plate in decorative forms with concave copper reflectors, are portable, and furnish a clean, odorless and convenient heating apparatus. Cooking stoves of all sizes, forms and capacities, from the complete range with baking and roasting ovens, broilers, etc., to the simple tea and coffee lamp, were in display."

    Alcohol burns readily under all conditions without smoking, and is free from disagreeable odors.

    The man who stands in line for the greatest benefit of free alcohol is the farmer, A greater demand will be created for the products of the farm, and in return he will be able to buy a motor fuel at a cost so low that power will be utilized very liberally in connection with the work on the farm.

    The rapid growth in the demand for liquid fuels has more than doubled the past five years, and the fuel bill for a five-horse-power engine, ten hours a day, has increased from $100 to $150 a year. With gasoline as the only available motor fuel its cost must advance with the steady increase in the number of engines used, since the supply is limited, and cannot be increased in proportion to the growing demand for it.

    It has been estimated that making alcohol available as fuel by removing the tax would double the power uses in this country. This would mean an aggregate increase of engines of over ten million horse-power, and if these were employed one-third of the time an addition to the working force of the country of a thousand million horse-power hours. At one tenth of a gallon per horsepower this would require the annual consumption of one hundred million gallons of alcohol.

    The farmer has interest in alcohol and the movement for the removal of the tax for another reason: He is the producer of the raw material from which it is distilled. Corn is the principal raw material in the country from which alcohol is made. It can also be made from other materials, such as potatoes, beets, unmarketable fruits, damaged grain, etc. A large industrial consumption of alcohol would guarantee a sure market for surplus and otherwise unsalable crops. Furthermore, the nature of the fluid permits of its being kept for years if necessary, hence when a large crop is raised which tended to create a surplus and depress prices, the surplus could be easily converted into alcohol and stored to prevent any marked reduction in prices in case of failure from short crops the following year.

    Based upon figures furnished by the department of agriculture at Washington, D.C., the humble corn-stalk of the crop raised in Iowa the past season would produce 1,500,000 gallons of alcohol. In a recent letter to a friend bearing on this subject, Secretary Wilson said:

    "During the past twenty-five years experiments have been frequently made in this country which show that the cornstalk at the time when the grain is hardening contains from 12 to 15 per cent of sugars and other fermentable matters. If these sugars could be fermented at this time, it is easy to see that they would produce an amount of alcohol far in excess of all that is used in the world for technical purposes and beverages.

    "It is evident that as natural gas, oil and coal become, scarcer, some other source must be found for fuel and light. It seems probable from a careful study of all the conditions of agriculture that alcohol is destined to be the fuel of the future. It is part of wisdom, therefore, in those connected with the agricultural interests of the country to exploit as far as possible all the various sources of supply. In this country the stalk of Indian corn, the yam and the sweet and Irish potato are promising sources of alcohol in the future."

"Where the Henrys Manufactured Small Arms...."

One of the Many Historic Places
in Pennsylvania
Where the Henrys Manufactured
Small Arms for the War of 1812
and Later for the Civil War.
   Nazareth, Pa.--One of the most historical places in eastern Pennsylvania is the Henry gun factory about three miles northeast of here. It was here that the Henrys manufactured rifles, muskets and pistols for the war of 1812, for the Civil war and for the North American Fur company, of which John Jacob Astor was at one time president.
   Ever since the Henrys came to America from England, they have been identified more or less with government service, either as soldier, statesman or manufacturer of arms. The first of the Henrys in this country was Hon. William Henry of Lancaster. There he established a factory for the making of firearms in 1752. His muskets and rifles were in demand during the Revolutionary war, and he could hardly make them fast enough. He was in charge of small arms during the Braddock and Forbes expeditions in the French and Indian wars. He was present at the attack of Fort Duquesne. During the battle he saved the life of the Delaware Indian chief, Killbuck. According to an Indian custom, Henry and the chief exchanged names. It is said that to this very day the Killbuck family retain the name of Henry as the middle name, both male and female. William Henry was also active in the Revolution as deputy quartermaster general and superintendent of arms and military accoutrements. When Gen. "Mad" Anthony Wayne was contemplating the attack on Stony Point, he sent word to William Henry to "hurry up those guns." In 1784 and 1785 Henry was also a congressman.
   His son, William Henry, Jr., came to Nazareth in 1780 and entered into a contract with the state of Pennsyl-

vania and the United States government for the manufacture of muskets. He built a small factory at Nazareth, but the water power was poor and the demand for muskets much greater than the supply. It was to facilitate this work that he built the Henry gun factory at Bolton, about three miles northeast of Nazareth. It is situated in one of the most delightful spots along the Bushkill creek, formerly known by the Indian name, Lehlcton. This was g 1812, when the government was pressing the factory with orders for the war then waging. A few years later the works passed into the hands of his sons, William Henry third and John Joseph Henry. They jointly conducted the business till 1822, when the latter became the sole owner.
   The fame of the Henry rifle had spread along the whole frontier, and when John Jacob Astor organized the North American Fur company he ordered all his supply of rifles from the Henry factory. The rifles were to be of a certain style and the Henrys had the only factory at that time that could furnish them. Ramsey Crooks, afterwards president of the North American Fur company, was sent there by Astor to order the supply and personally compliment the gun manufacturers upon the satisfaction given by these rifles.
   The manufacture of these rifles ceased when the fur trade died out and the North American company went out of existence. During these years, many rifles and pistols were manufactured by the Henrys for the militia of the south and west and figured very prominently in the Civil war.
