closer than ma ny of today or else they had known without asking the Savior Have we been true to our Lord have we not made many vows and promises that were soon broken No doubt there were many who on

wseo IKCORPORAXBD eRA8 M 1AWJ Unr Democratic newspaper devoted to 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 MAR 29 1905 To Judge TA Murrell In reply to your open letter aoU dressed to me last week through the columns of your paper I de sire to say that your denunciation of my standing in the most scur rilous sentiment and language shall not carry me away from the facts and figures germane to the question at issue and while they are not indicative of true cour age Christian virtues or in keep ing with the honor and dignity of your official position I refuse to drop to the same plane Newspaper controversies are common and some times become heated but true courage is not displayed in vile epithets Why not come to me and use the same vile language as appeared in your sheet last week You know as well as every man fully acquainted with me that I have never refused to cor rect any mistake I ever made in word or deed and your case was not an exception if my statements were shown to be incorrect in whole or in part The readers of j both papers know that I did not seek this discussion My article calling attention to the import ance of making good permanent roads and offering goodand wholesome suggestions was it seems construed by you as an attack on your official conduct when you know no mention of you directly or indirectly was made You entered a vigorous defense of the road machine and a vindication of your management of its use when neither had been attacked I have no desireto vaI ry from the facts in a discussion with you or any other man I have prosecuted my business without meddling with yours or others and at no time have I ev er taken an undue advantage of the publication which you claim I have tried to force to the wall In my article of last week I referred to your connection with the two bridges near this town and culled attention to the fact that you received out of each 50 The iIforce of that statement missed the mark of correctness in part and therefore an injustice done you to that extent and I take this my first to cor 11thatjointly elected bridge commissioners and shared a joint responsi bility and reward I accept your statement attested by Mr T R Stults and Squire Eubank in re gardto the first but if the sec ond contract was a facsimile I do not understand the force of a bond Mr Garnett was elected commissioner and made bond and your connection was at best in definite but this does not amount chargIedsought to sidetrack both of these bridges by urging the importance of a levy for road purposes It was road money money to operf ate that grader on a more extenJ sive scale that seemed to against these public improve ments that stand monuments to the good judgment and public j spirit of the Magistrates who vo ted for their building while the money spent in operating that N machine has left its trail of mud i I J L j r V ftlc f tj1V i wherever used Had your demands prevailed these needed and pertnanentbnprovementswould have failed and a more extensive use of money in road grading re suited I donot condemn the use of the grader but advocate limi ting it to the extent of stone ap plied to the grades made by it I do not favor the levying of a tax to keep up the present system of road making and firmly believe that the tax payers will realize that it is an expensive luxury if its use is continued much longer unless followed with stone I can not overthrow this system or inaugurate a better one that alone is with the mag- istrates whose fidelity to the coun tys interests I do not doubt I have no controversy with any other official now serving this county or who may have ser led it in the past God forbid that I should stoop so low at any time or under any circumstances to knock on the gravestone of the honored dead or invade the sac redness of honest and faithful service of retired officials This controversy is Between you and me and your own Had you stood to the original question the making of good roads and not attacked my motives it would have been different You invited courtIedto me a fair summary of costs growing out of the purchase and use of the grader which brought vile de nunciations on me from you You do not deny that you received the 130 and do not contend that it was legal but justify your actions from the standpoint of earning it It is not my business to say whether you earned it or not The order shows a dodge of a decis ion of the Court of Appeals while your paper printed the allowance as services for road supervisor which was a hiding from the peo pie in its publication In a case carriedup from Daviess county by the County Judge of that coun ty for similar service the Court of Appeals affirmed the decision t of the lower court which had held that such an allowance was not legal A decision of the Court of Ap peals rendered December 1st 1903 Daviess county against Goodwin closesas follows The Fiscal Court is abody of- limited authority It is without apt visor Its action was therefore nugatory The authorities relied on for appellant as to the accept ance of anancompatible office have no application astheorder of the Fiscal Court appointing the Coun ty Judge as Supervisor was void The appellee Goodwin is a citizen and taxpayer of the county suing for himself and all other taxpayers and may as suchmain tain the action to prevent a mis countysfunds expendedtaxesplace in the treasury and thus an additional burden will be cast on the taxpayers Judgment af firmed The order I published was made after the above decision and is as follows October term Fiscal court 1904 Whereas T A Murrell was supervisor of the roads for and during the year of 1903 and the court of appeals held that nothing could be paid for servi ces as supervisor of roads and was necessary for him to use his horse and buggy and whereas at the last term of this court he was allowed about saidIncourt having considered said matter it is now ordered that T A Murrell be allowed one hundred dollars in dollarsnere1tofore horse andbuggy while he was su pervisor during the year 1903 to be paid out of the Road Fund all the Justices being present and all voting yea That allowance was not legal and thepeopleofthis county are Fii I t iif i l JfJ J fl4j J41 Z t Jf r lYJ 1 ttJ7f entitled to know it and when your paper published the list of claims allOwed it should have been given as the records show it As to the allowance of a 5 per cent for disbursement I did not question its legality and referred to it merely to show that a part of it was a just charge foropera ting expenses of the grader I stand to this statement Whether 5 per cent is too much or too little for your trouble is not for me to say but the Sheriff is only paid 4 per cent for collecting it while a Master Commissioner is allowed by law only 2 per cent for receiving and paying out money under an order of court Before you took the oath of office there was no road levy and the 5 per cent allowed for disbursing the road funds for four years preceding you I am informed would not exceed 30 In one year it paid you 124 The very year you drew 130 for your at tention to the roads and contrary to the law I put in several days of my time and spent over 40 to notIthe betterment of the roads and while I credit you with consider able interest yet I believe you have been fully paid for your se- rvcesI am not responsible for your mistakesrand the pubi assassiIIwill hold me guilty The people of this section know us both and I am willing to abide their judgj iment iIknow the relations that should fraIternal prder and I have tried to- keep them sacred and inviolable but reputation is no less sacred youImessage for me to cease speaking to you was received and your request granted I have tried to cover every phase of this controversy save that of being youIC S HARRIS There isa renewal of

who have made good records will be retained The news has been handed out to Senators ld Rep resentatives who have called on the new PostmasterGeneral during the past few days to press the claims of apI plicants It also has been sent to every quarter of the country in letters from Mr Cortelyon to politicians seeking ap pointments in the postal service for faithfulworkers Politicians gradually are

The Japanese Evidently Are Doini Their Utmost To Accomplish tIEnvelopment of the Remnant s Russian Army Santoupu 1farch17rrhe Russian detachments at Tie Pass were on March 15 ordered to evacuate their positions and during the night retired in exemplary order covering their rear There had been fighting throughout the day Before the withdrawal of the Russian forces the military set tlement and such of the stores of fuel and forage as could not be removed were set fire and destroyed The fighting on March 14 and 15 fell tot the Second Siberian corps St Petersburg March 17wit1 the evacuation of Tie Pass Wednesday night the Russian army abandoned the last stronghold in Southern Manchu ria and definitely turned over the sec 1tion to the Japanese for the campaign At least no other strategy is possible for Gen Kuropatkin in view of his scanty supplies of ammu nition and stores the shattered condi tion of his army and the wide envel oping movements which the Japanese have continued almost without a stop since the Russian defeat at Mukden Rear Guard Encounters The Japanese evidently are doing their utmost to accomplish the envel opment of the Russian army which all but succeeded at Mukden but Gen r Kuropatkin with the railway for a lire of retreat probably will be able to keep ahead of his pursuers A con stant succession of delaying rear guard encounters may be expected Military men here have but the ha ziest ideas as to where the next stand will be made Apparently there are no more fortified positions in readiness I and the retirement probably will not stop short of Kirin or Kuanchent zy on the railway line and if the Jap anese press the pursuit the Russians may retire beyond and up the Sun gari river there to await new levies the mobilization of which will begin immediately in Russia Lose the Coal Mines The evacuation of Tie Pass involves the loss of the coal mines in that vi cinity which with the Fushun and Yentai mines gone is a severe blow The railway shops at Tie Pass and more supplies were sacrificed A further mobilization has been de termined upon and preparatory orders to quartermasters etc are already being issued but the extent of the mobilization is not known T fo change in the command of the army in the far east has yet heen ga uetted One high military official said that to remove uen Kuropatkin at this moment would be much like trading horses in the middle of the stream and that it would be better to give Kuropatkin chance to get what is left of his army out of the claws of the Japanese before committing it to r a newcomer who necessarily would need a little time to get a grasp upon the situation THE FAR EAST WAR itr A High Official in Poland Says It Now Appears To Be EndedI Warsaw March 17one of the highest officials

A Uniformity of Type There is no stronger evidence of the fact that the breeder unI stands his business then when the average of his animals in the herd conform a fair degree to the stardard called for by the scale of points thus assuring uniI ormity of type in his herd The breeder should possess in his mind a fixed idea easily rec ognizable when seen in a living form before he can ever attain this end Speaking of this an exchange says It may be said of type that it means form and resemblance inform The latter thought is the import one Animals bred to type must resemble one another They must possess essentially the same characteristics in regard to form whatever that form may beI If short limbs are wanted they bodiesfthe ear should bear a resemblance and so of all the minor points in detailas well as of the essential points Of course it is quite im possible to find these resemblances perfect in degree in a whole herd owing to the existence of the second law of breeding which says that like does not always produce like It is sometimes spoken of as the law of variation The important question now arises as to how this uniformity can be secured It may be brief ly answered by saying through purIitybreeding states that like pro duces like and this law is intense in its action in proportion as they have been bred in line This explains whyjineTDred males in maey instances
