Attica Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - November 24, 1920, Attica, Indiana Live topics Dollar Day it s significance. Or. Harrison s offer to Africa Citize is. By Felix i it Olar May be of interest to the general Reader to learn just Why the merchants of Attica held what they termed a quot Dollar Day quot Sale. There is no purchaser of any of the bargains offered in Attica on armistice Day who can bring himself to think that there were any excessive profits reaped off of the goods offered and sold on that Day. It is doubtful if even a break even Price was attained on these offerings. Some of the goods were probably sold at a sight loss. Now some Are asking who merchants should sell goods at prices that do not bring fair profits. There is a reason. Attica is admirably situated geographically As a Trade Center and All conditions being the same the Trade in this territory naturally should come to Attica. This Little City has its problems to Deal with just like a great Many other Small cities. The adjacent Trade territory that rightfully belongs to Attica is insistently encroached upon by merchants of the larger surrounding cities. To draw this Trade out of its natural Channel special inducements Are held out to attract the buyer. There is no other inducement to offer. The neighbouring City merchants cannot consistently put up the argument that the buyer outside of that City s territory Hap anything in a business Way in common with the citizens of that City. The foreign customer derives no Ben lots from the Public institutions of the City he occasionally visits to do his trading. He lets Loose of his Money the transaction is ended. He does not Hope neither does he expect to reap any reciprocal business from the City merchant with whom he deals. It is to counteract this outside encroachment upon business that should come to Attica that the business and professional men of Attica have organized themselves into a Booster club and instituted a Campaign whereby the citizens of this Vicinity May be made to see that it will be to their interests to Trade in Attica. To get the people to come in and inspect the various stocks these Dollar Day sales have been inaugurated and there will be others to follow at stated periods. There Are other stunts to be carried out and which will be divulged at the proper time. The main feature of the movement is to instill a better Community feeling Between the two factors that go to make up a live Community the farming element and the residents of the City. The two should be brought together on some ground of common interests. One cannot live and Prosper without the other therefore we should All be brought to a realization of the truth that a Community is just As Strong As the tie that binds it together in one common interest. Merchandise can be sold in Attica just As cheaply As anywhere else and will be if the rightful patronage is drawn to this business Center. With the proper patronage coming our Way Attica merchants will be enabled to carry just As extensive stocks As Are carried in the larger City stores and the Oft repeated excuse for going away from the Home town to seek larger variety of stocks of merchandise will no longer be used As a conscience easer. In this Day of Trade agitation those communities that Are first to awaken to the real condition of things will be the first to reap the Harvest that is surely to come. Will this Community awaken in time to do this the Campaign is on to do this very thing. Will you be one of the men or one of the women to help the cause along there is an old slogan that has been used in Attica for Many years quot Attica is a Good place to while this is True let us raise our Standard just one notch higher and let the new slogan be quot Attica the better place to the offer of or. . W. Harrison president of the National car Coupler steel works the leading manufacturing institution of this locality and the quot heart of Attica quot has made a proposition to the citizens of Attica that they cannot afford to treat with indifference. He proposes to furnish a Large portion of the Means with which to build a suitable building for the Young people of our Community in which can be carried on under proper supervision Good wholesome activities that will tend to keep the Young Man or Young woman from the paths that Are fraught with the in areal of life. This Only daily newspaper in Fountain and Warren counties member United press special. Service v volume to. 9 Attica Indiana wednesday november 24, 1920 number 224marries Cousin contrary to Law us Sial situation brought to Light in Workinger Case at the county seat Charles e. Workinger of this City was before judge Ratcliff in the circuit court on the charge of contempt of court for failure to pay for the support of his child seems to have brought much trouble upon himself by not obeying the order of the court. It was brought out during the hearing that after securing a divorce from Catherine Workinger Charles immediately married his first Cousin which is contrary to the Laws of the state of Indiana. When the court asked him How he secured the License he said he was not questioned by the clerk of Warren county where the License was obtained. The court then informed him that the marriage was illegal and that he had no right to live with the woman. This is the first Case of cousins marrying Ever brought to the attention of the court in this county. Workinger s attorney had prepared a petition asking the court to modify the divorce decree and Grant him the custody of his child but the court informed him that he could not modify the decree by the evidence of such Domestic relations. Thee next step in the Case is. At yet a matter of conjecture. Will make insanity plea a plea of insanity will be entered by the attorneys for Jesse Graves charged with robbing the first National Bank at Dana ind., of $1,700 on monday november 1. Graves is 30 years old. His Case will be heard in the Vermilion circuit court. A. N. Foley of Crawfordsville and h. B. Aik Man of Newport have been retained As Graves counsel. Graves is confined in the county jail at Newport where he was taken following his arrest and alleged confession of the theft. He was taken into custody at Rockville on saturday. November c. Official election he tums attention of the Reader is called to the tabulated election returns of Fountain county to be found in this paper. This table was tabulated especially for the Tribune and is the Only official returns yet tabulated for this county in the late november election. It was no Little expense that enables us to give this valuable information to our readers and we Hope that they May appreciate our efforts in furnishing them this table for future reference. It will be noticed that Ambrose Banta for sheriff Heads the ticket with a majority of 1238, with Fred Pur Nell lor Congress a close second with a majority of 1158. The majorities All run Over the one thousand Mark with one exception Warren Mccray for governor whose majority was 952. Mrs. Schwartz suffers fractured Bone mrs. Max Schwartz had the misfortune to fracture one of the Bones in her hand on wednesday. The Accident happened while she was preparing the noon meal and was caused by giving her hand a Peculiar twist while lifting a roaster. Carlton Mcfayden Tjo has been at Home convalescing after an illness of typhoid fever has returned to Akron where he is employed As physical director in one of the Large rubber plants. Is a laudable act on the part of or. Harrison and our citizens should become deeply interested in this pro proved Enterprise that Means so much to the present Young generation and the generations to come. Perhaps or. Harrison could build this building by his own efforts but even if he so desired we doubt if he would do so. His idea is to build an that will live for All time to come and to perpetuate a Community Enterprise there must be enough of the people interested in its welfare to insure its future life. This is a Chance that Attica must fully appreciate. Attica must realize that there Are not Many towns of its size with a Community building such As the proposed one will be if the City s populace will not fail to grasp this Opportunity which has been placed at their feet on a Silver plotter. Opportunity generally knocks but once. This May be Attica s last Chance to do something along this line therefore no time should be wasted but action should be started at once toward devising some feasible plan whereby our Little City can realize on this wonderful Opportunity to possess a first class Community building for the Young people of trustee of Charity Home Cardwell Case again before Benton co. Court this time in Battle for taxes the Jennie e. Caldwell estate is again occupying the Center of the Legal Arena in Benton county where the county authorities Are conducting a fight before special judge Ben f. Carr of Monticello to compel the trustees of the Jennie e. Caldwell Home for homeless mothers and babes to pay taxes on the 2,700 acres of land that provide the maintenance of the Home. By the evidence it has been shown that Only three old ladies enjoy the luxuries of the Home and despite the fact that the quot mistress of Richland quot craved the love of Little children no child has Ever been cared for at the place in the four years the Home has been in operation. A. K. Sills one of the attorneys for the county who is endeavouring to make the trustees pay taxes styles the Caldwell Trust under its present management quot the near Beer Trust one half of one per cent for, Stuart Simms and Stuart of la Fayet Are representing the trustees and Burke Walker county attorney land Fareman and Sills of Monticello Are prosecuting the Case for the county authorities. John Lee Dinwiddie one of three trustees has been in the witness chair constantly from the beginning of the Cise. The Cross examination is conducted by Sills and draws quite a Little heat that Breaks the tedium of the Long list of figures. Or. Dinwiddie is Reading the checks one by one Given out by the trustees during their stewardship As they have covered but a few months of the time there Are Many More to come. It seems that or. Dinwiddie has been in the habit of having his family laundry done by the women who do the Home laundry. The fitness showed a Lack of frankness and the admission was made after leading questions for several Days. The trustees and the witness in particular ordered groceries at wholesale for his own Home with orders for the Caldwell Home. Or. Dinwiddie ordered Brick for his Fowler garage with the wholesale order for Brick used in the building of the new Home and the Mason who did the Brick work on the Caldwell Home built the Fowler garage. Or. Dinwiddie paid for the Brick but he did not say As to the freight. A heated Little examination occurred Over a $1,500 Bill to Marshall Field in Chicago for linoleum for the. New Home and involved a certain Rug and household linens. Or. Sills asked if at any time or. Dinwiddie had ordered supplies from Marshall Field s for his own Home with orders for the Caldwell Home if in fact he did t have in his Home a Rug billed to the Caldwell Home. This called Forth a heated and emphatic denial from or. Dinwiddie. Quot what about Grandfather s clock quot was asked. Quot i bought and paid for that quot was the answer. When asked about the bed linens in his Home from which he had hired a woman to pick the Caldwell Monogram he said he most certainly did not. The trustees it appears do business with themselves or. Dinwiddie writing insurance on the properties drawing the Premium and commission As agent or. Barr handling the Grain through the Richland elevator. The Richland Grain company of which or.

Dinwiddie a co partner for Coal feeds posts and various supplies handled by the company and 1156,000 Worth of Grain was sold one year to this firm which in 1917 and 192tf bought two farms. Seemingly each trustee takes care of his part of the Trust without interference from the others. Attica boys enlist Loren Wilson son of Porter Wilson has enlisted for one year in the u. S. Army in the motor mechanics school. Earl Wallace also of Attica has enlisted for the same length of time in the same department. They will be sent to Camp Grant Illinois.

W. A. Safely at Redondo Beach California in which was enclosed a copy of the Attica Clipper of March 8, 1907. This reminds the editor of his first attempt at journalism when a boy of 13. The paper was a souvenir edition of eight pages two columns to the Page pages 5x8 inches in size printed upon Blue tinted paper. We remember it As the crowning Effort of our then Young ambitious career As a journalist and while we have since entered upon a larger More extensive Field of journalism and have put out some creditable papers we doubt if any of our recent achievements brought us As much real Joy As did this Little Sheet we printed in our boyhood Days. The Little paper contains an editorial by the editor in which he reviews the year s career of the Clipper and the Bright prospects for its future. Well do we remember the amount of time that was consumed in building that wonderful production from the pen and How when it was finally finished and pronounced Well done it was viewed by the writer with much fondness accompanied by vivid anticipations of the juror it would create in the journalistic world. The writer dreamed a great future would grow from this Little editorial Acorn another Horace Greely or a Henry Waterson perhaps. But alas do dreams come True we have found there is not much time in the modern print shop for dreaming for with the hungry cry of the Linotype for More copy and the incessant demand for More White paper at fifteen cents per and the thousand and one worrying things about a print shop make the life of a newspaper Man just one darn thing after another.
