for Oklahoma well do I remember the day The rain fell in perfect torrents all the way to the station My eyes were moistened with tears as I left my Kentucky home for the broad praires of Oklahoma I like Oklahoma far better than I did Kentucky However there are a few unpleasant features such as sudden changes in the weather variable winds dust storms etc We often need rain when we do not get

home of his fath er near Calloa on the 16th of October 1904 Owen Watson aged 25 years 8 months and 21 days Lung trouble was the cause of his death Owen left a father W S Watson mother Mrs 0 A Watson brother H A Watson sister Miss M F Watson to mourn their loss I reached the aedside where Owen was at 3 oclock and I saw that he was near death I sang and prayed with him He called his loved ones and friends gave them good advice and told them to profit by his mistakes I took his confession and he diedwith the hope of eternal life Eld L H Harbord Bevier Mo Party split The President favors the earli est possible action looking to a revision of the tariff He so in formed the Senators and Repre sentatives who were in confer ence with him at the White House last Saturday and he has made plain his position to others since that conference He will call the Fiftyninth Congress in extraor dinary session as soon as the com mittees have indicated that they are prepared to submit a tariff measure for passage r One of those at the conference Saturdaysaid today that the President informed them that while he did not believe in any sweeping revision of the tar iff and would abide absolutely by the judgment of the two Houses of Congress yet he did think the time had come when the sched ules should be thoroughly exam ined and there should be a readjustment of certain ones The President added that his own view that the special session should take place at the earliest date by which the committees of the two Houses come to an agree ment on a bill TO CALL THE SESSION If they took this view he said he would hold himself ready to call the extraordinary session at whatever time the members of the two committees and espec ially the House Committee on Ways and Means should inform him they would be ready with their report If Congress should act on the tariff question in ac cordance with the Presidents de sire it was made perfectly plain today that the extraordinary ses sion would be called to assemble in the early spring It has been pointed out however that it will require many weeks to prepare a measure The President realizes that this is a practical objection to an early session of Congress So far as the President is con cerned he would be willing to have Congress in session during the summer months He has in dicated his entire readiness tore main in Washington next summer if Congress will undertake at that time the consideration of a tariff measure but Congress thus far has shown no disposition to ac cede to the proposition While no decision of a definite character has been reached as to the time of the extraordinary session it is reasonably certain that if one should be held it will be called to meet next au tumn probably in October SPLIT IN THE PARTY The President it is stated rec ognizes the futility of having Congress in session while the measure is being prepared It was added that there is not the least prospect of differences so- radicalarising between the Pres ident and the Republican leaders I in Congres over the tariff ques tion to cause a split in the party While the President is deeply in earnest in his desire for tariff revision he regards the question as one of expediency in which no great principle is at stake As he indicated to the conference Saturday he is willing to abide by the judgment of the two Houses of Congress in the mat terSome consideration was given at the conference to the subject of appropriations to be authorized at the present session of Con gress The President cordially approved of the disposition of Congress to hold the appropria tions down to the lowest limit but he urged very strongly that the naval appropriations should not be materially disturbed say ing that the best ofbpeace for this country lies in a strong and homogeneous navy and that the naval program as mapped out should be carried in to effect without the dropping of a single vessel The President maintained that Congress should authorize the construction not merely of one or two cruisers but of fighting ships battleships and he expressed the hope thatI agreement with him in re gard might be reached in Congress A MORAL QUESTION IOn legislation relating to the interstate freight rates of rail roads in his mind is quite made up He will fight for that legis hopeslsecure some definite action regarding that leg islation at the present session but if he does not he will bring the sltaJa before Con gress at the proposed extraordi nary session and will urge with all his power the chrystalization into law of the recommendations- he already has made to Congress on that question The freight rate question he does not regard as one of expe diency He holds that it was aI subject in which a great moralI principle is involved very near to all the people of the country He regards it in fact as the paramount issue at this time far more important than the proposed revision of the tariff He spoke plainly it is stated of his views at the conference on Saturday concerning the freight rate problem The expression of his attitude on the subject led to a free interchange of opinions regarding it Cincinnati Enquirer Mean Meaner Meanest There were four of them in the smoking compartment of the car when the traveler from Chicago happened to say That reminds me of a man out in my town who is so mean that he makes the members of his house write small hands in order to save ink A friend o my fathers suh was even wus than thet came promptly from the Baltimorean He stopped the clocks at night sah because of the wear and tear on the works Then the Philadelphian Well theres a good old Quaker out in Wayne who wont read the pa pers Wears out his glasses says he All three looked inquiringly at the man from New York but he merely smiled and rang for the waiter to take the ordersSmart Set Copper Production To the question asked as to the relative production of copper in the different States Col Foree made the following intelligent response V f t- t I will answer your question and trust that my statements will also serve as answers to the many questions askedverbally and through the mails by parties seeking informaticn touching cop per shares Last year the exports of cop per amounted to 240000 tons the total revenue derived from that source being 71344000 more than half as great as the amount received from the United States wheat exports Last year the mines of the United States yielded approxi mately 740000000 pounds the gross value being nearly 1000 000000 worth of copper Montana Michigan and Ari zona are now the three leading copper producers in the United States Last year the mines of Arizona produced 210000009 lbs of refined copper and this year it is estimated that Arizona will produce 260000000 pounds of which the Old Dominion mine at Globe will yield 30000000 pounds In the production of Montana holds first place MichiganI second and Arizona in the matter of annual dividends it is safe to say that Arizona holds first place in one year having paid something less than 6 000000 in dividends to stockholders nearly as much as was paid by both Montana and Michigan However Arizonas increase in the production of copper has been so great that it is not at all unreasonable to expect that Montana will lose priority and that the year 1906 will see Arizona oc cuppying first place in the pro duction of copper Another Divorce factory If reports from Pennsylvania are to be accepted categorically than state will soon become a keen rival to Da kota as an asylum for those that seek quick release from matrimonial bonds in construing a divorce law passed in 1903 the court of common pleas sitting at Philadelphia decided that the statute permits divorces without personal ser vice upon the respondent where one of the parties resides in an outsi estate and the grounds for divorce ocI curred in an outside state The process of handing down the de cision and specifying its limitations exposes one of the most repellant phases of the entire problem one too which has for some time constituted the main argument for a divorce lawthe absence of universal application The judges stipulated that it should be clearly understood that under the new law where no personal service has been made the decree of divorce should explain that it is purely a Pennsylvania- divorce not binding in states where- the laws conflict with the new one en acted by the legislature of Penn sylvania In other words each decree issued from the courts of Pennsylvania under the convenient provisions of the new law is to be labeled for local applica tion only and as soon as the innocent or guilty party crosses over to Delaware New York or any other American state the divorce becomes inoperative and the status of man wife and children a matter for speculation and when specu lation is started over a subject of such vital import to society as matrimony we have arrived truly at a distressing moral crisis- Sufficient complications haye already grown out of the indefinite status of divorcein this country without supple menting the confusion from another source Decrees granted in Dakota and other jurisdictions are denied legal application in many of the states farther east precipitating tangles over proper ty titles and raising some very ugly questions regarding the social and legal priviliges of the children of such matches In view of the Decent concerted action of the religious d of nations i America looking to the curtailment of divorce such developments as the de cision in Pennsylvania are not encour aging The most sagacious and unbias ed thought of the nation is coming ronnd to the belief thatdivorce in some form is indispensable It is to be hoped however that with this conces sion to expediency any future measures enacted will be along lines protecting the social and legal rights of the in nocent involuntary parties to divorce Otherwise the granting of divorce in the interests of morality the only rational plea advanced for its wide spread sanctioning will be sadly euphemistic Atlanta Constitution Must Wives Be selfSupporting American women are ceasing to find men to marry them unless they are selfsupporting This is the startling deduction made by the United States Bureau of Labor in its last report The marriage rate among women who work and among women with money is much higher than among women who are neither workers nor rich and the disapprobation is annually increaoing All rich women according to the sta tisticians have opportunities to marry and generally speaking all working women have equal opportunities but the women who just depend on servants to do the household work andon their husbands to supply all the household in come are being driven from the matri monial field Fewer than onehalf of them marry now and the percentage is steadily diminishing The American man is finding it harder and harder every year to earn enough to support a nonpro ducing wife and family First came the decrease in the number of children to the average American family and now comes the gradual disappearance of what is called middleclass matri monyOnly 18 percent of American married women kept domestic servants Al though the number of men and women employed in household service is in creasing rapidly the number of families- in which they are employed is diminish ing The households with a maidofal work or a cook and a maid are annually fewer and the great establishments with a retinue of servants are gradually affording a large proportion of domestic employmentNine of the married women of the United States work for wages apart from the performance of their I household duties Twentythree per cent add to the household income by taking boarders More than one fami ly in five has its children at work More than 20 per cent of the earnings of the average American family comes from the labor of the wife and the children The old type os American supported by his own earnings his wife and his children whose home was his own and who occupied an independent place in thd community is disappearing Marriage is becoming more andmore a commercial partnership where the man and the wife pool their earings or a fashionable festivity where the for tune of the wife added to the income of the husband maintains a social establishment until divorce doth them part While the number of men at work about keeps pace with the total popula tion the number of women working for gages is increasing twice as rapidly andnotwithstanding legislation against child labor the percentage of children at work is also increasing out or population Care Of The Eyes Never read facing the light y Do not read with the

Democrrts Come In The EschTownsend bill is a decided improvement over the Hepburn measure so far as insuring prompt action in the matter of rate regulation is con cerned but its failure to provide for a bond on the part of the shipperto indem nify the carrier against unreasonable loss should the rate impostd by the Commission fail to meet with the approval of the Court of Transportation is an omission in need of remedy before the bill becomes a law It is true that the bill makes provision for fat appeal anda speedy hearing but the Inter state Commerce Commission will notbe proof against all error and when an t r error is committed it will be the car rier who will have to pay the cost With this one exception the bill as drawn is deserving of the support of the Democratic minority which Mr Williams has already pledged to any measure in compliance with Mr Roose velts re comendations The Democratic representatives inj the two branches have an opportunity to perform good service by making a fight for the insertion of the bond clause Failing to gain that point they should not overlook the necessity of gaining those that are far more essential which the Esch Townsend bill embodies The purpose of rate legislation as ex pressed by the President in his speech before the Union League Club of Philadelphia is that every shipper who uses the railroads and every man who owns or manages a railroad shall on the theIother hand be required to do justice Democrats can make this possible if they will be Democrats and not poli ticiansLouisville times Sheep Shearings Sheep are always improving or they deterioratingWhen a sheep for breeding be sure it is better than what you have The secret of successful sheep husbandry is to keep good sheep and in small flock Unless there is a continued effort to improve the flocks they will go back ward instead of forward In purchasing a ram get one fully developedstrong in limbs straight shaped and thoroughly typical in his breed If a radical change in the rations is made too suddenly growth of both body and fleece is liable to suffer a check The lamb carcass can be produced for less than the aged sheep carcass and will sell for onefourth more in market Uniformity in wool can only be ac complished by regular feeding and keep ing the sheep in healthy and thriving condition Feeders are higher than usual ne manageimaintainedWool

larger than they have ever been before At the weaning time the best oppor tunity is given for determining the val ue of the breeding ewes A large fair lambnow is better recommended than a heavy fleece- Overfeeding or sudden changes from poor to very rich food combined with want of exercise if not actual causes will contribute to the development of the loss of wool among ewes Peter Jenson the veteran sheep grow er advises shippers to put gaunt hungry and tired sheep from the ranges on prairie grass and stubble fields before feeding grain They need to get accustomed to the new surroundings

Frenzied Finance fin Ev bodys Magazine for February out tomorrow- In this installment Mr Lawson begins The Story of Amalga mated He starts the story with a description of the finan cial system of the country and the manner in which the sys tem is gradually getting legal control of the entire country He shows that the system is gaining its astounding power and robbing the people of their mil lions by using the peoples depos its in banks insurance companies and other institutions against themselves You may ask if I desire to convey the idea that the great financial institutions and trusts o this country which have their head center in Wall street are all concerned in a conspiracy to savingsa less that so sweeping a state ment goes beyond the truth I herte cial institutions which in any wa are engaged in taking from the people the money that is their caPitaldpurpose guarding it or putting it in use it for bdstocks other paper evidences of worth are a part of the machine for the plundering of the people This is a terrible charge I a upoen gravity I do not mean to sa that all men who handle and con trol the different institutions mentioned have guilty knowledge 1 of the bearing of their action Many of them are of the purest minds and most honest intentions and are quite incapable of participating voluntarily in acon anyoneI only took from the people a paltry tenor twenty million dollars a year while today there are single groups of banks trust companies f Corporations and trusts which take from the people by might by trick and by theft hundreds thereIare scores groups Sugar

a very old person had been on a visit to the home of a daughter in Mead coun inIage When the death of her hush band occurred the news was telephoned to Mead county to be broken to his wife when it was

the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED FEB 81905 The Republicans of Missouri hangaineddie With a clear majority they cant elect a Senator The Boyle circuit court returned fortysix indictments against the Standard Oil Company for peddling o i 1 without license What a pity that infant Industries should be so rudely handled The PostOffice appropriation bill under consideration of Con gress carries a subsidy for fast mail but it seems to us that bet ter compensation for slow routes that would bring about better equippments would be of far more worth to the people served What the present or incoming Congress will do toward a genuine revision of the tariff will not afford much relief This will never be accomplished until the representatives of the people and not the protected interests hold sway in that body That thing will happen by and by The contest instituted byexi Gov Peabody of Colorado on the ground of fraudulent votes is progressing the wrong way for the contestant since a large number of voters have identified their ballots as genuine that the experts had pronounced fraudulent It appears that the only serious trouble is that too many honest men voted for Mr Ad ams the Democratic nominee It now looks like that Congress will obey the demands of the President in passing a law that will place the regulation of rail road freight rates under the con trol of the Government This is to be accomplished through the Inter State Commerce Commis sion The inequalities now existing in rates the discriminations practiced between larg and small shippers and between im portant commercial centers and the small stations would possibly be shattered At any rate the effort seems to be a move in the direction of common interests rath r than special and comes within the Bryan theory and Democratic doctrine as old as this Government The people should through Federal and State Governments protect themselves against the encroachments of powerful corporate combinations Railroads are essential to devel opment to the welfare of corn merce to the life of business but they should be made to give impartial and just rate of charges It is to be hoped that the power f corporate interests will prove ineffectual in preventing judicious legislations on this line Some Democrats are not in clined to accept good from a Re publican President neither do they want any Democrat to ap prove the Presidents course on any of the great questions that confront the welfare of the peo ple even though his policy measures up to our demands Like wise some Republicans are not admiring democratic endorsement of the President on such measures though satisfied that it is- just We have never had that 3EY confidence in Mr j Roosevelt that some profess to have we have never admired him as a great statesman but have doubted his future as we were disgusted with a part of his past Yet we be lieve in giving approval when sufficient cause exists and believe it the duty of every American citizen to as readily accept good from his administration as if coming from the strongest Dem ocratic source The President has placed his disapproval on an repIassociates and himself were pledged in platform to reduce In the making of the platform the Republicans were playing politics in the execution of that doingiare other tendencies of the Press dent to go for the country rather than the narrow confines of his party and if he accomplishes good for the country especially the Sunny South why not accept it with gratitude ADDITIONAL LOCAL e The real worth of Water works is of so much importance to the welfare and growth of Columbia that it is hard for the News to keep within reasonable limits in its advocacy of such a blessing Columbia has entered into a sub stantial growth in population and business but this was not accomplished by any defined plan or in ducements that resulted from special efforts of our people to- make the town grow for no such efforts have been made The enterprising spirit of Columbians received its greatest encourage ment in the establishing of the LindsayWilson School which has already demonstrated its great worth to this community Many worthy citizens have come to Columbia bought and built houses Every one is well pleased and doing well and others are coming but the time will come when this will cease unless substantial im= provenients and conveniences are j secured In the limits of reason able expenditure and effort there is no improvement of so much worth to our town as a good system of water The water in great abundance is at our door sidesIyet the property of the town is in the grasp of almost unbearable insurance rates with no other protection from fire The health giving properties of an ample supply of pure water the conven iences secured from such a supply under good pressure in the kitchen and bathrooms alone ought to stir our people to action in this matter But hundreds of dollars would be saved annually in insurance rates and place us in a position to fight successfully an ordinary fire which is liable to occur in any home or business house at any time The town could put in a good plant if willing to bond its self or a company of our townsmen could do this and share the profits which would result under judicious management As to bonding the town we do not believe that it could be accomplishedeven if the figures would show it beyond a doubt profitable for the people are op posed to public debt so the only avenue seems to be fora stock company to build and operate jt It would not only be good for the town but yield a good dividend for its stock holders and would get better all the while Within one year water could be placed in 100 homes at 900 per annum The town of course would pay for sufficient water plugs to pro tect against fire and a few hun dred dollars could be secured from the sale of water for power The News would set aside its engine and put in a water motor and quite a number of enterpris es would be glad to buy power r 1 Gentlemen you who are in a posi

Garnett Judge James Garnett of Columbia Ky died on January 25 1905 and was burIed January 29 altough it was a sad mission a long trip and very bad weather it was a great pleasure to attend the funeral and honor the memo ry of one of the best friends I ever had The funeral services were very beautiful and impressive Be sides the regular sermon by the pastor of the Baptist church all the other ministers of the town were there and also the Columbia bar to comment on the character and nobleness of the andagoodman It is a fact that few men have lived that will in so many ways be missed as Judge Garnett was In church affairs or educational interests in the financialcircle in fact in every thing that was good for Columbia and vicinity Judge Garnett was at the head Every enterprise of merit was nearly always headecj by Judge Garnett He was the morning star of the town I well remem ber a few years ago when he was a candidate for Judge of the Court of Appeals in my effort to secure for him the vote of Marion county I only had to say to my friends that he was an honorable high toned Christian gentleman and fully qualified to fill the office Their answer almost invariably would beI will vote for him I well remember too at the con vention in Lebanon he was ten dered the nomination if he would concede to a certain proposition that he did not believe to be just right He declined to accept He was then asked to turn his strength to certain other candi dates He said no indeed I will not have it even intimated in the history of this convention that I sold out no indeed every man must stand on his own merits so far as I am concerned Oh for mare politicians like Judge Gar nett He practiced law in Colum bia and surrounding towns for half a century He was the le gal adviser of my grandfather for years and my father all his- lifeand for myself and my child ren As our attorney for four gener ations straight his advice and counsel so far as I know were always satisfactory coming as it did from a abpure heart He had been Moder ator of the Russells Creek Asso ciation for nearly forty years He was Circuit Judge six years also in the Legislature and State Senate and was County Attorney and School Superintendent in his early life He has been Presi dent of Columbia Bank for many years All these places and more he filed with honor and credit to himself and a benefit to his peo pleI trust his example and influence will live for ages and that we will try to imitate his life in our own J C YATES in the Lebanon Enterprise The February Womans Horne Com

anewlyelected president and tatesvicewere to drop deadjor be killed iimmedu ately after they had taken the oath of officiallyoffianycabinet who would succeed to the office of chief executive Suppose the newly elected president were republican in politics and the out going administration were demoeratic would the democrats retain control un der the aforesaid circumstances or what would happen ThP pindother interesting problems are suggested in a recent report made bYlthehouse committee on election of the president The bill upon which the report is based does not deal with these questions but simply adds the secretary of agriculture and the secretary of com merce and labor to the presidential suc cession which under the present lawI runs down through the cabinet in the order of the establishment of the exec utive departments These two depart ments having been added since the en actment of the original law the change made by the bill under consideration is of course necessary and right The committee takes advantage of the opportunity to call the attention of congress to certain inadequacies in the presidential succession law The law provides for succession in- case of removal death resignation or inability of both the president and vice president Who the committee asks would determine the determined the question of inability on the part of a president and when such inability ceased The committee thinks it is not clear moreover if an election were ordered in case of a vacancy in the presidential office whether it would be for the unexpired term or would have to be for a term of four years thus disar ranging the fouryear period of the government If a presidentelect were to die be fore becoming president would the vice presidentelect be president for the term the committee7asks A gain if a presidentelect and vice r presidentelect should both die prior toI takingtheir offices would the cabinet officers appointed by the outgoing pres ident succeed in the order named in the present law when the new term began Suppose the democratic candidates for president and vice president had been elected at the last electionand had died before new cabinet officers had been confirmed would the present republican cabinet officers be in line of success ionThe committee says there is no easy answer to any of these questions Another interesting hypothetical case put in this connection is this The ex isting law provides that in case the succession shall devolve upon any of the persons named in the law if congress ibe not in session and would not meet within twenty days thereafter then the person upon whom the duties of the office devolve shall by proclamation convene congress in extraordinary session I giving twenty days notice of the time of meeting Conld he give moreIi than twenty days notice not be reqnired to call congress togeth- er in twenty days in no uncertain lan guage Or rather should not the com ing together of congress in such a case be made to happen certainly and not be dependent upon the proclamation of the person succeeding to the duties of the presidency- All of which seem to indicate a good deal of uncertainty about a matter which of all matters in our form of government should be beyond doubt While the peculiar emergencies contem plated by the members of this commit tee might never arise still the law should certainly provide for the proper meeting of every bossible emergency 311LATSON The people of this neighborhood are fixing for a large tobacco crop A S Stapleton M E Bryant and W R Watson have already burned large beds

EATING DEPRAVES Canon Lyttleton of Sngland Declares Modern Menus Are a Stimulus to Wickedness London Canon Hone Lyttleton brother of the British colonial secretary announces his agreement with Tolstoi that it is wellnigh impossibleII lor even the best live physically pure if he eats meat to excess As soosys Canon Lyttleton as the diet is changed from meat to vegetables there is a diminution in animal lust The meals of the wellto do are on a topsyturvy system In stead of being arranged to appease hunI ger they stimulate appetite If cheese and sweets came first far less meat would be eaten Schoolboys eat as much as they want in the first quarter of an hour and then stuff themselves for the rest of the meal Every meal taken according to the modern menu is a direct stimulus to passion One

weapons should it be en acted would convict under such a statutePistol toting is unquestion ably responsible for a large per centage of the homicides that are committed Pistols are usually carried by cowards bullies or outlaws The use of whisky by any of these types makes probable the use of the pistol A term in the penitentiary is not too heavy a penalty for a violation of the law which so often paves the way to murder but juries unfortun ately will not send men to the penitentiary for carrying conceal ed weapons Statutes providing for fines and improvement in jajl would operate effecttvely to stamp out the evil if Judges and Governors would enforce them rigidly The law against carry ing concealed weapons has been made almost inoperative in the majority of States by the readi ness of courts to remit jail sen tences especially in the cases of defendants who are men of standing If by any chance a man of standing is convicted friends to the Governor is usually sufficient This does not apply to any particular Governor or to Governors elected by any politi cal partyit is the rule of the greater number of executives The remission of a jail sentence causes the pistol toter to

Legislature that a law making it a felony to carry con cealed weapons should it be en acted would convict under such a statute Pistol toting is unquestion ably responsible for a large percentage of the homicides that are committed Pistols are usually carried by cowards bullies or outlawsThe use of whisky by any of these types makes probable the use of the pistol A term in- the penitentiary is not too heavy a penalty for a violation of the law which so often paves the way to murder but juries unfortun ately will not send men to the penitentiary for carrying conceal ed weapons Statutes providing for fines and improvement in jaI would operate effecttvely to stamp out the evil if Judges and Governors would enforce them rigidly TheNlaw againstcarrYJ ing concealed weapons has been made almost inoperative in the majority of States by the readi ness of courts to remit jail sen tences especially in the cases of defendants who are men of standing If byany chance a man of standing is convicted I and does not secure leniepcy from the court a request from his friends to the Governor is usually sufficient This does not apply to any particular Governor or to Governors elected by any politi cal partyit is the rule of the greater number of executives The remission of a jail sentence causes the pistol toterto llthat he is immune from the Jaw Rigid enforcement of existing statutes is
