cloudburst differ widely but the num ber of dead is certain to reach 300 and it may be swelled to Boo when all are accounted for One hundred and fifty bodies have been buried and it is known that fifty are missing Still others who were strangers In the town are supposed to be among the loss People are coming here from all di rections in wagons and an horseback and the work of recovering bodies and burying the dead is proceedings fast as possible The most reliable estimates place the number of dead at 300 All day long help in the shape of provisions blank ets and men whO have come to bnry the dead and help restore order has poured in The Oregon railway and navigation track was opened as far as Lexington nine miles away this afternoon and from now on the work of relief can proceed more expeditiously as the wagon road from here to Lexing ton is good and supplies can be brought in by team in a few hours after they reach the end of the railroad It prob ably will be several days before the track Is opened to Hepnner as tbe road is washed out for almost the entire distance of nine miles The scene from the hillside overlook ing the town is one of desolation Huge piles of wreckage in many places fifty feet high fill the canyon for half a mile below the town As the debris which is covered by many feet of mud is cleared away more bodies are found Immense bowlders weighing tons were rolled along bv the flood and deposited in the midst of the town or lodged against buildings An appeal has been sent out for men to clean the streets and to assist in searching the great mass of debris for bodies PANTHERBURN At the Galt House Mr Junius W Johnson registered from Panther Burn Miss While the clerk was discussing the oddity of the towns name Mr Johnson who was standing near troduced himself He was a typical Southern tall erect and handsome Asked how the place came to bear its present name he said Down there in Mississippi they used to have forest fires that would burn out a large area of trees and this made the land much easier to clear The early settlers called these tracts thus cleared burns One of these burns was located on the plantation of old Maj Willis who had a large plantation While walking across the clearing one day a negro was attacked by a pantner They had a death struggle and it ended in both the man and brute being killed that fight the negroes all called tha spot Panther Burn It was taken up by the white people and when a railroad was finally built through the plantation and a station established at that point it was naturally called Panther Burn It is only a small sta tion Maj Willis gave the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley railroad tbe right of way through his entire plantation a distance of twelve miles President Roosevelt was down there hunting and he came near our station being on the next plantation to Maj Willis who is a cousin of the man with whom the President stopped It is a great huntI- ng country and we

every time but after he has bitten anyone put him up if possi ble until either his madness develops or it is established that he has never had hydrophobia In ninety cases out of a hundred he is not mad at all and horrible mental apprehension can be thus saved those bitten It is well to remember that hydrophobia in dogs is as often caused by sexual excitement as from the inoculation of the actual

JettWhite murder case was eleven for hang ing and one for acquittal This isfully as favorable to the prose cution as a great many people ex pected since it is known to be so dangerous to life and property in that section to stand up in sup port cf the law The conditions at Jackson offer no encourage ment to the average man to take a position against murder and out lawry for it means or indicates that he may be removed from earthly cares on short notice We do not know any thing about the man who hung the jury It may be that he was honest in his opinion or that he feared to make a de cision against the accused It may be that he received money but it is certain that he saved the neck of a hardened wretch believed to be guilty of the crime for twhich he is charged We trusted that a verdict carrying the death penalty would be reached for it seemed clear from the evidence that Jett and White committed the murder It also looks like the County Judge and the sheriff are parties backing up such crimes and we trust that the plot may yet be revealed and all the guilty parties brought to face justice Political position financial and social conditions should cut no fig ure for there is no difference be tween a wealthy criminal and a tramp in the true meaning of the laws nor should there be in the sentiment of the people The time has come when no excuse should be offered for murder when the law abiding citizens must stand for justice regardless of the prominence of the party par ticipating in the crimes Ken tuckys fair name has many times been stained with blood Her feuds have sent to eternity many brave men and the stealthy hand of the assassin has laid low from the highest official to the humblest citizen The deeds of recent years have been herald all over the country and the name Ken tucky has declined in apprecia tion by outsiders The murderers of Mr Goebel in part are still at large and the prosecution of those in custody have not had the indorsement of many prominent men throughout the State and in fact a part of the press has made a hard fight to poison the minds of the people against the prosecution for no other than po hornbledeedrithou5 tramping underfoot the lat indorsing ussassnabiou It WWI conspiracy involving some of the leaders ofa great political party It should have been de nounced by every true citizeu of this State and the CllImonwPtllth should have had the aid of the oi tiro people in running down thj murderers but it was not 30 To day we are facing another assassination possibly with a political clique as the conspirators but thank God they are in the wrong pahrty to ovcejvp aid or to share the P7 mputhyrf a single publication or official it the State Atrial fearless honest and determined hall ji ended and since ver dot hap been reached a change of venue results and the accused will bo taken to Cynthiana where wit nesses and jurors can act without the fear of the assassins bullet The States attorney Mr Byrd and Judge Redwine have done all that could be expected and espec ially has Mr Byrd displayed abil ity zeal and courage in the prose cution of Jett and White There is no reason for Judge Hargis and his allies to expect sympathy from his political party His party de mands that he face justice and if evidence can be secured against him that the whole gang take the severest punishment within the law Kentucky must be reinsta ted and it can not be done while assassins and conspirators receive the aid of any part of our people because of political influence or through the power of wealth The day has come when the people of the State are awakening to the great dangers and are willing to apply the remedy The above named prisoners were tried jointly and as above stated eleven of the jurors favored the death penal ty for Jett and one for acquittal Seven favored the same penalty for White while five were for freeing him The case will be tried next month at Cynthiana A few days ago we received from a friend in the City Hall of Dallas Texas a design for a new seal for Kentucky produced by The Nashville Banner It is a circle with a skull at top a pistol pointing at one side a keen dirk on the other To the sides and in the center are two trees a man behind ach one engaged in a shooting scrap All this rests on a jug labeled Red Eye The inscription Divided we scrap united we fight Our friend Mr Hughes the sender has our thanks in reminding us of such anappropriate sealbut the ef forts now baing made to suppress that such a picture suggests will soon justify a different drawing It will be the Godest of Liberty a white ribbon and an olive branch Then the empire of Texas with her hot winds and disappointments her black mud and sand sto rms tossed on the sea uncertainty and embraced by deluge and torna does will long for the blessings of the Old Blue Grass Statethe fa vored land of earth We cordially invite our Texas friend to pack his grip and come and dwell where life is worth living Mr Bryce has recently made a statement as to the causes for the great prosperity in this country and his reasons are right He says the main cause is the abso lute free trade between our States and territories We have an area greater than all Europe and nat ual resources as great and diverse as Eupope but while European commerce has been hampered by tariffs and taxes at boundary lines our domestic trade has been free This fact coupled with the fertil ity of our soil and the opportunity for settlement gives the explana nation of our national advance despite the burdens of tariff3 and trusts But we are reaching the point when foreign trade is now essential to our welfare and wise men of all parties see the necessi ty of seeking it Though they disagree to some extent as to meth ods they all see the obstacle of the tariff wall The taxpayers of Green county are to be congratulated The Court of Appeals last Wednesday revers ed a judgment of the Green Cir cuit Court in the county against J D Shortell involving the va lidity of 250000 worth of bonds of the Cumberland and Ohio Rail road Company The Court held that the railroad bonds issued by Green county in 1869 wore not valid tho conditions not having been complied with in issuing the bonds Oapt B J Ewen told the truth in the Jett Whtie case and friends ot the murderers burned his hotel The lawabiding peple of Kentucky will not lob Mr Eweii suffer and are sending in money donations daily to mi in burse him Tho investigation of the postal affairs is still on at Wushjngton and more indictments will be re turned Wholesale swindling hits been going on for ears The Aassooiation of Kentucky Baptists for next year will be Ield at CampbellBville In Juno t Jett and White will remain iri the Lexington jail until ordered to Oynthiaua for trial t It is little remarkable that the Postal Department scandals are not worthy tho attention of some papers Judge Robbins who is to eit in the next hearing of the State against Caleb Powers has fixed August 3d for the opening of the case at Georgetown Grover Cleveland has been an nouncing some more This time he says be has no desire to again enter public life Mr Watterson of course believes the statement The Louisville muddle has been settled The Court of Appeals up holds the Democratic primary held in Jefferson county and the City of Louisville on May 26 and sustains the Committee which called and conducted the primary The de cision is a clear knockout for Allie Young The opinion was handed down by Judge Paynter a a majority of the court concurring The best element of the Whallen faction will support the nominees of the May primary and all is love ly for the Democratic party Wonderful progress is b e i ng made by the Mineral Exhibit Com mittee of Kentucky Exhibit Association in procuring specimens for the display in the Mines and Metallurgy Building at the Worlds Fair in St Louis next year At the meeting of this committee held in Louisville a few days ago reports were made by the different members representing the different classifications in thIs department which showed conclusively that the mineral exhibit from Kentucky at the Exposition will equal if indeed it does not surpass that of any oth er State in the Union AUGUSTA KANSAS Editor of News Augusta is a thriving town of about seventeen hundred popula tion situated in Butler county near the junction of the White- Water and Walnut rivers at the crossing of the Frisco and Santa Fe R R It is surrounded by fertile valleys well adapted to the growth of almost every product common to this latitude Field crops and garden vegetables grow to perfection and many kinds of fruit such as apples pears peach es prunes apricots and cherries Most especially would I mention the crop of Alfalfa which is con sidered one of the most paying crops it makes the very best of hay and can be cut three or four times a season yielding from one to two tons per cutting all kinds of stock thrive on it both Winter and Summer and when land is once set it does not require resow ingThousands of cattle and hogs are fed annually around Augusta which business has proved very profitable The best of society is found here there being seven churches an an excellent school nine months in the year to which all the child ren in school age have free access the books also being furnished- A good per cent of the citizens in and around Augusta are Ken tuckians who are in a prosperous conditionThe of building stone abounds here many houses of this place bearing testimony of its quality Several quarries are now being worked which gives employ ment to quite a number of hands There is a well being bored which is now to a depth of 800 or 1000 feet and the town is soon ex peoted to be lit with natural gas I have recently made a trip into 0 Tand the country through which I passed is beautiful indeed waving with golden grain about ready for the harvesting machine The people of this part of the west seem to be enjoying a season of great prosperity I have for a long while heard that this was a dry country but since we have been here we find the contrary to be true ANDERSON

JOHN W TURPEN DEAD Last Saturday afternoon at 530of oclock after a long illness the spirit of the subject of this notice went to God who gave it For many years he had been a citizen of Columbia and when his health would admit he was variably doing day by day what his hands found to do In 1868 he confessed his Savior and united with the Baptist Church and was a consistent Christian until his death Sufferings long he bore but no complaint ever came from him He knew that his affliction was incurable and he patiently waited for his Masters call He was the oldest child of Mr and Mrs Soloman Turpen and had he lived until the 6th of next month he would have been 59 years old He leaves a wife father and mother and several brothers and sisters The funeral services were conducted by Rev E N Metcalfe and at the close of which all that was mortal of John W Turpen was laid to rest in the city cemetery Peace to his memory Prof Ratcliffe who is teaching a class in penmanship in one of the pub tic school buildings in this town has been annoyed for several nights by some one throwing stones on the building and through the windows and on one occasion a pistol was Ste near the house This is an offense prfsos t only defacing public property and disturbing a lawful meeting but it 1s a crime against the peace and dignity of the town and the party or parties en gaged in it ought to be made to respect the law and the people who live in that immediate locality At the time the disturbance was In process Mrs Payne who is in a feeble state o health was so terribly frightened that her rest for the eight was wholly de stroyed Mr John Turpen within a few yards of the building was at the point of death and since then be has passed away It is a shame and a disgrace that such conduct occurs In our town and yet no effort made to apprehend the marauders and inflict legal punishment Again on last Saturday the Professor received an annonymous letter notifying him to leave town within so many hours Regardless of the provocation this was a cowardly act plain and simple It seems that the Professor has incurred the ill will of several that he has not grown in favor by acquaintance of a few weeks stay in Columbia It may be that he has not been as discreet as he should have been that he hasrendered him ofself socially objectionable to some but regardless of such grievances who can justify such acts as have peen indulg ed in to annoy and force him to leave town If he has transgressed the law insa legal way It he has imposed on the honor or standing of any one then the party aggrieved should meet him per sonallyandnothidebehindadisguisehand s d The Professor may have trahcended the bounds of some ones likes and idmeremember their sworn duty and be big enough to make an effort to detect and suppress such acts of lawlessness The News offers no excuse for any manor person who reflects on our community It believes in an open plain policy and advocates the supremacy of law and order Force never drives justice into utter banishment and violence and threats never stifle in all hearts sympathy for the weak neither do they right wrongs Winter wheat conditions on May 1st were not quite equal to those of April 1 and the acreage shows a shrinks of nearly a million acres according the report of the Department of AgrI- culture Translating the condition figures into bushels the promise of winter wheat on May 1st was 43000000 bushels less than on April 1 but it was still 205000000 bushels above the promise of May 1 1002 and 88000000 bushels shore the largest actual har vest of winter wheat that of 1901 Even if there should be some further shrinkage as the season shall progress which is not improbable the prospect is good for the biggest wheat crop on record and there is also a prospect that Europe will need more wheat than usual We would like very much to have a group of the old singers who were at the Christian Church last Sunday We will have a cut made if they will get together and sit for a photograph i U S Rexroat who is charged with RuseMDeputyColumbiag was tried before Commissioner F dR Winfrey and held over his bond being fixed at 8200 The prisoner not

left this place accompanied by Mr F H Winfrey and as the latter entered the Springs Hotel inquiring for Rex roat that gentleman undertook to make his escape out the back way The anyd a s and the

deceased was the railway mall clerk on the Cumber land Ohio Branch between Greens burg and Lebanon Cliff Penick was a sympathetdwas his friend Before the end came he expressed a willingness to go hav ing f faith in the Giver of all that ht good Mr W D Thornton of Casey coun ty Is that character of friend that we are always glad to meet Several years ago he met a representative of this paper and subscribed for three months The paper has been sent him regularly fever since and a request to pay up was never mailed him While in Jamestown the first day of court a rather stately old gentleman approached us saying Are you the News man Receiving an affirmative answer be handed us three dollars and fifty cents with the information that we could keep the News agoing He further stated that the amouat paid us lifted him out of debt and that he had a few dimes left It is our understanding that Mr Thornton is a welltodo farmer and we are certainly glad to have him upon our list The old talks

to mako a mockery of justice might have succeeded in their pur pose As it is the Tudge juror or friend of the accused who attempts itostand between them and their richly merited punishment will but

assassins have been tools in the hands of men who felt that their political pow er personal influence and wealth gave them the power to do as they wouldwithout fear of consequen ces It is enough to punish the assassins the men responsible for their actions should share their punishment The latest act of violence in the long history of Breathitts shame is a blow in the face of the State itself The con tempt shown for its authority the disbelief in its determination to stamp out evil the utter disregard of the warnings uttered by the press cannot be passed over Noth ing can be expected from

going to elect Mr Roosevelt Pres ident next year the Republicans are now beating the bushes to find a fit running mate for him But can they do that Whom have they got that would not with Roosevelt make a dachshund tick eta long reach from the head to the tail Some of the mind readers of the party say that the Presient pre fers Governor Taft of the Philip pines Thinkof that The pres idential candidate from New York and the vice presidential candidate in a palace ten thousand miles away Besides what is to become of all those statements that Taft resigned a life job to go to the Philippines with the promise of another life tenue in a seat on the supreme court bench It strikes us that it would be making too many and heavy drafts on the self sacrificing patriotism of Governor Taft to ask him to tailoff the ticket of 1904 For one we do not believe he will permit it because Ohio is not a doubtful state unless the sincerity of Mark Hanna is dounted by by the administration and as to thatperish the thought The nomination of Taft would also bring the whole Philippine question again to the fore and there are yet thorns enough on that problem to make it a troublesome bedfellow during a campaign Next we are told that the president would like the ornate and or atorioal poseur from Indiana Sen ator Bevoridgp as his runnerup But that seems incredible in view of thu fact that beautiful Bev has not been that distinguished success in the mighty that was freely predicted for him He would look lovely on a campaign or button but when it Ikpiping the hoi polloi iuto ssion he would have

opponents who are both good men with a strong following and some good influen tial friends who worked hard for them Mr Durham had on his side in this race however some of the best party workers in the
