Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - November 16, 1916, Williamsport, Indiana Carire county jmyi6i4 the Rev devoted to the interests of Williamsport and Warren county. New series vol. , War Reist Coyoty la st dial a thursday is november 16, 1916. Is umber s trainmen again talking 81rike. Railroad chiefs and workers can t reach agreement of cases filed for hearing. Judge Burton b. Berry convened court Atlean election. Indiana Back Hoshie. Monday morning. As Yas predicted at the time the Adamson Law was passed under pressure of Woodrow Wilson it was not permanently settled. For a time and on the face of the thing for a Short time it looked Good. It appeared to have the earmarks of a Law that would for All time to come Settle the wage question and j he number of hours constituting a Day s labor but after a second sober thought and before we have hardly got settled Down from the excitement of the election we Are again thrust under the Shadow of what May terminate in one of the biggest and most distressing strikes that the United states has Ever witnessed. Most All of the leading railroads have served injunction against the Law going into effect and on the other hand the trainmen have been brought suddenly to the realization that they will be without proper Protection and at a Point where they were some thirty years ago if the Law is permitted to take its course. In commenting on the outcome of the Law and the threatened strike the Lafayette journal of tuesday has the following to say quot danger of a nation wide Railroad strike which was believed to have been averted by the passage of the Adamson eight hour Law has not entirely disappeared it developed Here today when representatives of the railroads and the four brotherhoods comprising 400,000 employees failed to reach an agreement As to the proper application of the new Law the stumbling Block both sides admitted was the existing mileage system of compensation. Quot we met said Elisha Lee chairman of the Railroad managers and the conference for the purpose of exchanging ideas on the application and operation of the Adamson Law. We failed to reach an agreement and we Are not certain that another meeting will take place quot William g. Lee president of the brotherhood of railway trainmen spokesman for the employees in the absence of a. B. Garretson of the order of railway conductors declared in a statement that in the the november term of the War fraudulent voting and intimidating it is Gratifying to know the people were not tolerated. From All parts of the state of in Ren circuit court was called in ses Diana which at tuesday s election Sion last monday morning by judge dropped Back in the Republican saw the need of a change. Turkey run saved to Indiana people purchased by state from veneer company recently bought from heirs. Burton b. Berry. Tuesday As usual was partially taken up for setting Day and dates for hearing cases has and while the docket is not As heavy As usual the following new cases were filed for hearing at the present term Robert c. E. Wallace is. William Fisher damages. Anna Cromwell is. William com Well divorce. Cora e. Messerschmidt is. Joseph Kiger it al injunction and foreclosure. Edward l. Hottenstein is. Robert c. Hottenstein it al establish lost will. Durfield Macgillivray is. Lewis rattles it al debt. Jesse Taylor is. Joab Taylor divorce. John w. Lawson is. Myrtle Law son divorce. Frank Shafer is. Seymore Rhode damages. Frank b. Thompson is. Bert Van Reed it al debt. Ele Stansbury is. John Messner it al quiet title. Earl Bones rakes. Mary m. Bone Brake appoint guardian. In the matter of adoption of Audrey Louise Moyer by Andrew f. And Letitia Ann Davis. Elizabeth Mallen is. William b. Milbury foreclosure. There Are ten divorce cases on the docket this term of court and whether they All come up for trial or not it would appear that a number of people had been mis mated or that what appeared to be an undying love was a fitful fancy and that being joined together when neither hold admiration for the other makes the matrimonial Road a pretty Rocky one to travel Over. Had All the states in this Union looked upon the political situation As did Indiana Hughes would have ranks reports came in that it was been elected president and the re one of the cleanest elections that publicans would have had control of been held for Many years j both branches of the National con fraudulent voting and intimidation Gress but they did to and the result were not permitted and Only those is we Are to have four More years who had a Legal right to vote be of Wilson and his wobbling cause of proper registration were but we Are particularly proud of permitted to cast a ballot. In War j Indiana and Illinois our sister state Ren county everything went along j on the West and of the Eastern nicely save now and then a Point states where manufacturing is a was raised by challengers but aside j great Industry that stood out four from this every thing was quiet and Square for or. Hughes and com each Side worked hard to get out a full vote of their respective parties. Another great Factor in preventing irregularities was the activity of the Federal officers throughout the state for it was generally known that a close watch would be maintained for Law violations and then too the Don Roberts infamy at Terre haute seems to have had for once at least a bearing on those who would attempt to juggle things at the ballot Box. Men who heretofore have taken desperate chances in a Muni Cipal or county election were curbed because they entertained a sort of fear of detection which would land them in company with one Don Roberts and his gang. No honest Democrat however partisan can approve the use of such methods and Many in the state doubtless voted against the administration candidates to Register their disapproval of crooked elections. The machine throughout the state has not been noted for its ability to Guage the Public mind but it May have come to see that the better element of the voters demands a clean election and tuesday s figures should bring this lesson Home so impressively that even the machine will understand. Court news. Things that happened around court House the first week. The in our Rush last week to get our suits of the election from the nation state and county we omitted several important items last week among which were the juries empanelled for the present term of court. The juries Are As follows grand jury. First District we. Robertson Harry c. Lowe. Second District a. J. Vester Frank Naville. Third District James Hooker James Bell. Petit jury. First District Jacob Lape b. H. Mcintosh Chas. Clem Hal Chandler Chas. Owens John Hoover. Second District we. G. Mcclure John r. Chambers Frank Bright Arch Glover Ira j. Warrick Jesse Swisher. Event of evasion by the railroads of paper out and to get the Correct re the Adamson Law summary action a Ould be taken by the brotherhoods. He said that the strike order which was directly responsible for the Law was still in effect and the brotherhoods would not hesitate to enforce it if the occasion warranted. Quot the brotherhoods asked for this conference said or. Lee. At the morning session we discussed the App cation of the Law and found that there was no basis upon which we could possibly agree. Another setback besides the elimination of the mileage system Vas the deter mation of the railroads to continue their suits to determine the constitutionality of the Law quot the mileage system of compensation the basis of which is the number of Miles traversed by a train Crew and not the actual hours of work is the Crux of the new problem that says a Railroad authority May result in the development of a situation similar to the one which brought into being the Adamson Law. Quot frankly said chairman Lee of the conference committee in discussing this phase of the situation the trouble lies in the fact that neither the railroads nor the men know definitely How the Law should be applied. Quot we have our ideas As to How the Law should be applied if at All As suits to test its Validity Are now pending while the brotherhoods have their own ideas quot chairman Lee added that he could not predict the probable outcome of the difficulty. He said however that negotiations might be resumed by calling another the Mimm hold Jolliff Mibu a have Many autos and banners in the Parade Petely out distanced his democratic opponent. The factors in the states giving a Republican majority that figured prominently in this result were settled distrust of the democratic party loss of Confidence in president Wilson s steadfast Edness and apprehension Over the economic crisis soon to grip the nation when the european War is Over. It had been expected that the Eastern Industrial centers might give the democratic party Strong support on account of the War order business which has been of particular Benefit to them. But the workingmen proved too far seeing to be misled by War Prosperity. They looked ahead and cast their vote for the Republican candidate. Or. Wilson was All the democratic party had to offer to the people the platform and Wilson s past record were simply liabilities and were and Are now at a Point of bankruptcy so far As Good government is con Cei Ned. Already and upon the very eve of his election new revolutions Are being formed in Mexico and renewed activities on the part of Villa and Zapata have begun and More am quot icons killed because they realize that the american government under the present administration will not Index Fere. Returning again to Indiana and or. Hughes the republicans have a right to feel proud that Good people stood out for Good government and declared them Seh is for a Turkey run is to belong to Indiana. Parke county s Beauty spot after Long and tedious negotiations last week became a unit in the system of state Parks planned for Indiana. A Deal was closed whereby Turkey run bought at auction by the Hoo sier veneer company of Indianapolis last May becomes the property of the state. The Price paid was $40,200, which is $10,000 in excess of the amount paid by the veneer com Pany and represents a profit that Harry e. Daugherty president of the company said does not begin to represent the margin value of the Timber in the Turkey run tract. Richard Lieber chairman of the state Park committee and Leo Rappaport or. Frank b. Wynn and sol Kiser members of the committee held a Long conference with or. Daugherty in the office of or. Rappaport and or. Daugherty finally agreed margin of $10,000 Over his bid of $30,200 made at the auction Sale of the John Lusk estate last May. Or. Daugherty s company was Able to overbid the Indiana state Park committee for the property but the committee never gave up the Battle to save Indiana s nature wonderland to the people.
