ACT or When assassination it not the le gaily recognized is at least the commonly accepted and unpunished method of redress in Breathitt county and murder runs riot In Louisville it Is no that politics should have place or and Influence in the thought or speech of any man who feels that all t1atk makes for the welfare of his State is outraged by such conditions The ast Insasslnatlonofresponsible deed of one man acting ina passion without regard to right or consequence It was but the natural outcome and outward evidence of pub lic feeling in which the right to kill Is dependent solely upon the power It might be said with truth that the State In which every attempt to exmeasureof its Governor has been met by op position liaineless In its partisanship callous In its indifference to disgrace seanddoers because of their political way of thinking has brought its shame upon LiIt it were just that Gpebel should be killed with impunity it seems a little matter that the death of Marcum andS of the thirtyseven other citizens of Breathitt who have been asasslnated d that country within the past year should occasion surprise or call for remedy But at last the people of Kentucky have awakened to areallza a tlon of the low estate into which someI of them at least have fallen and wi thou t regard to politics every newsI paper in the State has declared that the end of these things must come and come speedily One thing is sure noI aid is to be looked for from the men toI whom the administration of the la in Breathitt has been intrusted At the best the largest reward which theJ Governor empowered to offer Is but a poor sum in consideration of the purpose for which it is meant and yet Judge Hargis was content to name but half the amount as being fully ade quate compensation for the men or man directly responsible for making possible the punlsbmentof the Was his estlmateot 8250 as sufficient reward evidence of desire to save theIs State or the murderer The Sheriff who sees murder done and yet declines to walk across the street for fear that his own safety may be endangered isto at best selfconfessed coward though there are men inclined to put a less charitable construction on his act Gov Beckhains bands are tie Beyond his offer of a reward it islui posslole for him to move at press The condition ls one that cannot e Khntuby r a n to her present standing and tutu welfare as a State to set on foot a tedto end the known cause of her dlshon The time has come to stand to gather If the officers of the State in Breathitt Louisville the Bluegrass the Purchase or the Pen yrlle will not do their duty they should be replaced by men who will Murder open from ambush will not pause while of the murderer knows that those who the law themselves will notsl through fear or indifference demand they who break it must in every stance pay its full and just pen Louisville Times rANIt seems to be settled that Congress will be called In extraordinary session immediately after the fall election this yearabout the 9th of Novembe- rIt would be interesting to know thea act extent to which Presinent Roosevelt consulted the leaders and managers of his party before he totk this step The object of the extraa ssion is understood to be to do that which Congress bad plenty of time totdo at the last session and tailed Th- sincerity with which the subjec- was treated leaves a doubt if anything will be accomplished even under the of being called together to do justice to the people of the new ro public for which we have assumed heavy responsibilities Whatever become of Cuban reciprocity though the extra session adds month to the time during which the majority in Congress must be pestered with the tariff question in the face of Presidential election The natural policy of the Republican party would be to make tbe session of Congress as brief as possible The tariff quest will have to be carried past the smartswst pollctcians in the Republican party teel that revision would be fatal next year They know the danger of t present policy but feel that the would be less of theelementof disaster in postponement than in present action If Mr Roosevelt wants to be nom nated and elected to the Presidency tine commanding politicians of his party It his best plan to precipitate the tariff question and provide for a long session in which to maintain the agi ration The Republicans arc bound suffer from discussion The late they put it off and the more aorupt they close it the better for them Mr Roosevelt may be easily sorry be prodp o sition t have Congress on h bands And be may embarass his ntb6pes of tour more years in tho White Tlouses IG is his affair though The Country would be much entertained with the spectacle of Mr Roosevelt bebaveltseltIJr Ing of thetarlll barons Cincinnati Enquirer 3 t IIt is said that Senator Foraker wants I the OhioRepublican State Convention which will meet next month to re nominate President Roosevelt for another term It U further said that SeiiHur Uuuua flits till doubtless cniitrnl the ciwvtutiuu do s out taKe kludly to the pruptsitlon Although Senator llanna hiS repeatedly denied that he lids presidential aspirations there is a lurking suspicion that way down In the bottom of his heart he has a hope that be may yet be regard ed as suitable timber for the president cy The unusual activity which Sena tor Hanna has recently shown in all matters pertaining to the interests of the laboring classes would warrant the belief that he bad some such aspiration Of course it the Ohio Republl cans should take the initiative in pre seating President Roosevelt fur re nomination It would destroy all chances for Senator Hanna in this direction WEATHER AND CROPS The crop report of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture says that the month of April this year will long be remembered as most unfavorable for crops and farm work The weath er bas been mostly cool with an ex cess of moisture This corresponds entirely with accounts from other sources As a consequence all farm work la behind from two to four a weather reports may appear on a superficial view not to sustain what Is said as to moisture and cold For the whole month of April the preiwas but 36 of an inch or a trifle over onehundredth of an inch per day For the first nine days of May the deficiency of temperature was fortytwo degrees or more than tour and half degrees a day but there was also a deficiency of precipitation 110 or about 12 of and inch pe day Combining the two we find that April 1 there has been a deli clency of heat of but little over on degree and a quarter per day while thec rainfall has been 74 of an inch below the normal This difference Is not se ous on its face as to the temperature while as to precipitation it is on the other side from that named in the complaint NNvertheless this complaint is founded We have in these figures illustration of the limitations of statistics The spring has not been phenomenally wet nor phenomenally coldonan average But the cold the moisture have been so dlstrlb uted as to cause serious interruption farm work Of this there can be no purposetwith the facts Courier Journal THE BOY FOR HIM A gentleman advertised for a boy and nearly flay came to see him Out of the whole number he chose one and dismissed the rest I should like to knowlI said a friend why you picked out that boy v ho had not a single recommendation You are mistak eosaid the gentleman he had a great many He wiped his feet when he came in and closed the door after him showing that he was careful Be gave his seat instantly to that lame old man showing that he was though ful and kind He took oil his cap and answered my questions promptly showing that be was gentlemanly He picked up the book which I had purposely laid on the floorand replac ed Ion the table and bewailed quit w lyfor his turn instead of crowning a pushing showing that he was honor able and orderly When I talked to him I noticed that his clothes we brushed and his hair in order when he wrote his name I noticed that finger nails were clean Dont you call that reccommendations 1 do and would give more money for what 1 can tell about a boy by qslng my e than for all the letters be can briog 19Selected True to a promise made to his dying wife that when she died be would fol low her G

was married last week at Indianapolis to Miss Alma Taylor second daughter of exGovern or W S Taylor The parents of the bride were not Informed of the marriage until the ceremony was over Judge James Hargis of Jackson makes the statement that there is not a single family in Breatbitt county some one of whose members have not been slain by Marcum blood He claims that he and his brother have been villiGed and every sort of Insinuations cast against them for political purposes and to tear down their business The committee of investigation intoJ the cruelties practiced on ihe inmates of the Lakeland Asylum for the insane after four weeks work find that the charges are true and are due to tbe negligence of the physicians in charge lack a centralization of authority and an obsolete and grotesque system of management The committee recommends an improved system of management for a remedy to do away with brutality which shall be applied- at once No personal references were made in the report but it was said that the brutality watch had been practiced in the past has been with tbe knowledge of those in authority or that the system of management is at fault Ned Strong an aged citizen of BrMarcum that be overheard a plot in a blind tiger saloon three miles from Mareon the following day Strong says he sent a man to Jackson to warn tfarcum but the messenger failed to reach the attorney in time and was endeavoring to attract Marcums at tention when the fatal shot was fired Gov Beck haui has offered a reward of 15600 for the arrest and conviction of the assassin The Governor suggested in a letter to Judge Hargis that a ward should be offered Hargis re sponded by wire naming 8250 as the amount Guy Beckham raised it to 600 the statutory limit At Loral uc Ohio a few days ago the sister of a priest was brutally murdered by some unknown person At Med ford Mass about the same time prominent young lady was shot dow in cold blood at the home other and nobody knows who did It These facts in no way excuse the assasslna tlon at Jackson but as virtuous editors in the North are throwing rocks at Kentucky on that account it is well enough to keep before the public the fact that all the bad is not confined to this State The assassination of women is one of the crimes that is never laid at the dour of any Ken tucklan Curtis Jett was arrested at the home of his mother Mrs

For Commissioner of Agriculture HUBERT VREELAND For Clerk of Court of Appeals MORGAN CHINN FOR RAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON 0 0 McOHORD We take pleasure in placing the complete Democratic ticket at the head of this column there to re main until it is triumphantly elected in next November It is composed of intelligent compe tent men from head to footmen who have been chosen by the par ty and not by a small political cotrie that make tickets and un make parties So far as we are able to learn the canvass was con ducted upon high and honorable plains and the verdict of the party accepted by the defeated aspirants in a manner becoming gentlemen and true Democrats Some charg es of irregularities have been made and some Republican sheets have sought to stir up strife and picture dissentions but above all the din of the Republican press sweet strains of Democratic music rise andassure the nominees that an united and determined Democracy bids them go forward and win a victory that will deaden Republican ambition for a decade We are aware of the fast that no publication fully meets the re quiremants of the most exacting in many particulars We know our own taste and efforts are crit icised by some but we are not pandering to any man or set of men for hand clapping and com pliments We are guided by our desire to accomplish good for our town county and this section of the State We present our views on the political questionsa full pledged and firm believer in Dent ocratic doctrines but without an archistic feelings toward Republi canism We are not inclined and will never stoop to the low level of some publications to denounce honorable men to condemn legal prosecutions of criminals to ad vanceparty interests and stir up And keep alive the animosity that reigned three years ago to the detriment and disgrace of the State At that time both parties went astray Everybody was an ex tremist Ambition was aroused prejudice fired the young the old and unbridled ambition brought disgrace rum and murder Since then by u slow but sure course the people of the State have awak ened to the enormity of the blun der the fearfulness of the situation and the disgrace that came to the fairest commonwealth in the en tire list of State It was back there that we checked the develop ment of our natural resources j it was then that the m ral and in tellectual growth likewise suffered the time when Kentucky became an uninviting place for the abode of progress happiness and the blessings of true civilization In view of all the past its mistakes its fearful costs we can not see why any man who desires peace happiness and prosperity should seek to keep alive to reBur aaJrthe troubles of that period Political victories in County State and i Nation reto be desired by the adherents of both parties but they are not of such importance to t hr party to justify tlw uHtbI shat btretlrzd th wirtfcrn Jr1It which have ju t uvrg d It is not paramount to the peace and good will that ought to pre vail between the good members ot both parties The condemnation of high officials the abuse of judges and Juries the efforts made to impress the public that honor justice and sincerity have been blotted out of existence in the courts for political purposes are but efforts to resurrect the reign of terror and advance political ends We thank God that reason has returned to the people of this State that the bitterest period in all our history has been passed with no desire on the part of many for giving it new life j that the main bulk of people are willing for the evidence and the law to be applied to the parties who com mitted crime at that time as well as of recent date and that the ef forts of that part of the press to keep the fire of passion and hatred burning are losing their force We indorse an earnest and active canvass and all honorable means of gaining a victory but had rather see our party nom inees take defeat than to be a par ty to the inaugeration of such des perate and low means of waging political war fare on prejudice and abuse WS want victory but want it secured on honorable grounds The entire press of the State ought to seek to bring good feeling und union rather that bitterness and disseution The County Judge T A Mar rell is known to be an advocate of good roads He made a good effort last year to stir up an inter est in every part of the county and in various sections he was prom ised the hearty cooperation of the people He put the road ma chine to work on different loads under the promise that the people would put on the stone He made good grades but few if any of the sections fulfilled their prom ises consequently last winter we had an abundance of mud and much grumbling We honestly believe that the people ought to backup the efforts of Judge Mur rell and build the roads and rath er than take promises for com pleting the work we believe that bonds should be required before incurring the expense of grading A large part of the work last year was lost due to the fact that the people failed to put on the stone as was promised Now is a good time to grade and the gravel could be put on later when the grade packs Why not start the work and make substantial roads A move is now on foot to pike the road from the town limits on the Stanford and Somerset road to the creek Mr James Page has been securing subscriptions to ac complish the building of the road and at this writing we have every reason to believe that the road will be built This road is used by the people living on Disap pointment the Stanford and the Somerset roads and every body in that section should contribute Again it will be used by the people of Columbia for pleasure drives and would be of more worth to the town than a similar improvement on any other thoroughfare enter ing the town It will demonstrate the worth of good roads when built and lead on to further and CounItyroads will aid in graveling and the people will do the rest A sixteen year old

of J B Marcum and others Governor Bcckbam will send troops to protect the court in its effort to rundown the guilty parties It seems that some are trying to saddle the guilt on the Democratic party simply because the county Judge and Sheriff of that county are Democrats But regardless of such an effort it will be seen that the Governor will do all within his power to aid the courts in a thorough legal probing of the trouble Regardless who or how many of what political faith the oico of Democrats will be to deal out the severest punishment tothe guilty par Lies nitbin the limits of law The r

ment of President Roosevelt at the coming Republican State Conven tion Such a course may be look ed upon as good politics this year There are two or three kinds of indorsement The Administration of Mr Roosevelt might be commended as an able honest and successful one Hard ly less than this will be done To ignore the President would be to make it plain that there is a rup ture in the party and nothing else is as important just now as harmony Then the convention might resolve specifically and dis t inctly in favor of the nomination of Mr Roosevelt for President next year Nothing less than this is likely to satisfy the Adminis tration It might be plausibly argured on the other hand that no matter how earnest the Repub li ans of Ohio may be for their present Chief Executive it would notbe proper to formally declare for his nomination in the ante Presidential year that it would lo k like trying to forestall the ac tion of the Republican State Con 6ve tion of 1904 and that it would bo to say the least impolitic and irregular Out of all these conaid orations will probably come a res olution which will be satisfying those who view affairs superficial ly but which will be without
