who Is a a mi Id (He for attorney genernl
and who received 4.0K) majority- In the
primary vote in this. Governor Cummins'
home county, and a very large majority
of the delegates to the county convention,
will contest the legality of the Polk county
convention, which gave Governor Cummins
the right to nam the eevnty-two dele
gates from the county of Polk to the tate
convention, on the grounds that this Is
violation of the Polk county atate primary
law and that legally the convention could
not do this, as the law prohibited voting
;.by proxy and thereby Ignored the rights
of Mr. Msckenale; Colonel D, J. Palmer,
candidate for railway commissioner; Hon.

be reconvened.- In the opinion ot some of

WINONA LAKE, Ind., July 6. -Governor
J. Frank Hanly, at . whose command tha
raids oh th casino at French Lick and
West Buden were made, today made a
statement. In which be says:
We shall now learn whether the manage
ment of the French 14ek Spring Coal com
pany ana tne west Baden Hotel company
Is above the law. The Issue Is not between
the managers and these companies and
It is between them and a far ertutor
and more enduring power between theni

gart that the French Lick Springs Hotel
company has not and will not tolerate
gambling on Its premises, in tne light of
recent developments and evidence In the
possession of the state, scarcely rises to
the force and dignity of a Jest. If his
statement Is true, what' is the meaning
erf the carload of costly paraphernalia
taken from the premises of the hotel com
pany? He admits himself that gambling
nas existed. Mis counsel yesterday. In open

permitted yesterday and the isth Inst

did they find this new power to stop It?
The hotel Itself has betfn used for wteKs
nightly aa a place of safe keeping for the
money earned by the casino. The casino
building itself did not-cost more than 111).
O0. What legitimate purpose or use could
Justify- the rmvment of the areat sum. said
to be tOO.OUO annually, by the operator of
the casino for his concession? The truth
is that Mr. Taggart, as -manager of the

has not been granted by Its operator.
