the 2nd day of April 1905 willbe pleasantly remembered by the people of this neighborhood It was the 58th birthday of Mr Samuel Con over There were a large number of people assembled at his home and they came with baskets filled with the best the country affords All that the most delicate taste could relish was on the table The people were received most cordially by Mr and Mrs Conover Their handsome daughter Miss Hattie did honor to herself by the graceful manner in which she attended to the guests Suffice it to say that the large number present enjoyed themselves very much and realized that it was a daylong to be remembered With wishes for a long life fpr Mr Conover the people returned to their homes feeling proud of the occasion hN Garlin Ky- ArePotter in the Larue County Herald

the space I shall endeavor to lend a little information after a sojurn of six years in this country I would first like to state that a great many people have a mis taken idea of this country and I think the expression wild and wooly west is still in order when speaking of it but not so for the people as a class and there are about twenty different national ties represented are uptodate law abiding citizens and I must acknowledge in c h u r c h e s schools and many enterprises often surpass our eastern states We have six banks in this county with a combined capital of 200000 with 1200000

the choicest land has been taken up- and the remaining is not easy ac cessible at present there being 40000 new settlers last year this year there are expected 200 000 The soil of these lands is very fertile and the statility and productiveness is well illustrated- in the case of one man who settled on his farm in 1863 and has cultivated it continuously with out fertilizer and last year the yield was 55 bushels of wheat to the acre Oregon leads the world in hop raising annually producing nearly onehalf of the entire crop of the U S 1500 pounds to the acre is not an uncommon yield and at lOc

Scheme Mr Campbell Slemp of Big Stone Gap Va who proposes to make a new state of portions of Southeast Kentucky Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee is a native of Virginia was a Colon el in the Confederate army and cooperated with the Democratic party prior to 1880 He has just finished his first term in Congress but was reelected last November by an increasedmajority The constitutional provision with reference to the formation of new states is found in Article IV Section 3 It says that new states may be admitted but no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State nor any State be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State or any State be formed by the junc tion of two or more States or parts of states without the con sent of the Legislatures of the States c ncerned as well as of Congress If it is true that the President has approved the scheme of Mr Slemp it is possi ble that the consent of Con gress might be obtained though this is by no means certain But it would be quite ineffectual without the consent of the Legislatures of Virginia Tennessee and Kentucky The promoters of this plan see in it a chance to elect two more Republicans to the Senate and some of them may be assumed to aspire to that honor and hence regard it as a good thing for them But to carry out the plan the consent of the Legislatures of three Democratic States must be had to the creation of another State like Rhode Island to swell the Republican majority in the United States Senate That these States would consent to their own disembersement for the purpose of giving Mr Slemp and Mr Brownlow seats in the Senate is exceedingly improbable West Virginia got into the Union by the Caesarian operation on t one State but the

river at Chunchi atsu Jit may be compelled to retreat not only to Harbin but also further westward along the railroad abandon ing to the Japanese Northern Man churia and the Russian maritime Amur provinces as well is the latest startling news from the front The strategic weakness of Gen Linevitchs position as he falls back northwahr is made clear by a Gunshu dispatch in which it is pointed out that unless Chunchiatsu and the Sun beIlowdifficult to maintain a position farther back before Harbin where with the front of the army paralleling the rail road the practicability of a turning movement to completely sever com munications and isolate the army 6000 miles from home is too serious for Russian consideration A Significant Dispatch In view of the this possibility the dispatch alluded to suggests the ad visability of immediately providing Vladivostok with war munitions and supplies for a two years siege The correspondent estimates the number of reinforcement needed to give Gen Linevitch the requisite superiority in force at 200000 That such a dispatch should have been permitted to pass the censor at the front is significant and if Gen Linevitch has communi cated a similar estimate of the situation direct to Emperor Nicholas it may account for his majestys increased counIselsJapanese establish themselves Russian soil With Manchuria onI ly abandoned to the Japanese and Vladivostok left as Russias solitary sentinel on the Pacific it is realized that Russia will be practically at Japans mercy in the matter of peace terms Grand Duke Nicholaievitch It can now be definitely stated that the decision to appoint Grand Duke Nicholas Nicholaievitch to the su preme command in the far east was reconsidered because the outlook at the front does not warrant the risk of compromising the prestige of a member of the imperial familyIMilitary authorities here believe that unless Gen Linevitch is sure of his ability to hold the lower Sungari line he will risk his whole army if he fortifies and concentrates there as if he should be defeated his line of re treat lies to two sides of a triangle the third side of which is open to the enemys advance At the general staff the view that Gen Linevitch may be compelled to abandon Harbin and retire towards Lake Baikal leaving Vladivostok to its fate is regarded as almost unwar ranted by anything that is officially known there it being pointed out that Field Marshal Oyama will have a long and laborious task to bring up an army of 300000 or 400000 menI To Observe the Solar Eclipse Washington March 24Rr Adm

consultation with Gov Hoch and Attorney General Coleman regarding the Kansas oil situation Mr Eddy said that the Standard Oil Cos posi tion is governed by the law of supply and demand and that

in the Tenth district Alexander Hargis has been a member of the State Sen ate and with Sheriff Callahan and Elbert Hargis forms Judge Hargis cabinet Together they have dominated Breathitt county and have been pronounced influ ence in the political affairs of ev ery adjoining and nearby county Secure in their position and confi dent of the impossibility of evi dence being securedagainst them it is generally believed that they have permitted ifthey have not participated in high crimes against the State culminating in the assassination of JasB Mar cum a Republican of standing and influence in local district and State politics In 1900 when thEY Republican press was confronted by the assassination of a Democrat through Republican agencies and called on to make choice between a cam paign waged for the punishment of the assassins ora concerted effort in their defense it chose the latter The Democratic press placed in like circumstances three years later elected to follow the the opposite plan and from the day of Marcums I death the strongest demand for the punishment of his murderers has come from Democratic newspapers The result of that demand was shown yesterday in Judge Par kers refusal to grant bail to Jas and DIbert Hargis and Edward Callahan No other decision by a member of the Kentucky judi ciary in years has received and is certain to receive the more unan imous indorsement of the Demo cratic press Judge Parker has regarded solely the nature of the crimes and has ignored the polit ical affiliation and power of those charged with its commission In so doing he has acted in accord ance not with his own ideas of right but with that of every Democratic newspaper of weight in the Srate The speedy trial of the Hargi ces and Callahan and their prompt and uncompromising pun ishment if proven guilty is both desired and expected as much because they are Democrats who have been shown to have betrayed a trust aa because they have beenconvcteQof crimes that

adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED APRIL 5 190o It is not our desire to continue a discussion or controversy too long but the County Judges re ply in his paper last week was so evasive as t6 necessitate this article and it is therefore given If the Judge had stood square tothe original proposition and not sought every possible av enue to sidetrack the issue by introducing foreign matter it would doubtless have been end ed The publishing of the or der which showed an illegal al lowance of 130 to the County Judge aroused the bitterest re sentment but in his article he defends that allowance by stating that he was advised by a good lawyer that the Court could le gaIly allow it and ridicules our knowledge of law but he fails to state that he was advised by a good man not to accept it True we never studied law and never expect to practive the profession but we are not incapable of un derstanding a positive statement of a plain proposition The decision of the Court of Appeals is so plain that legal knowledge is not necessary to understand it A school boy un acquainted with fractions could correctly measure it He also defends the allowance by point ing to the sins of others as he sees them He states that the levy of 32 cents to build the bridges at Plumpoint and Mill town was illegal We presume that he means to justify his ac ceptance of the 130 contrary to law because of the illegality of a levy three or four years in ad vance of his as he tries to con strue it Whether that levy was legal or illegal cuts no figure in this matter and does not justify nor condemn the Judge It is foreign to our discussion and dis jointed in every connection he attempts to make If the money he received could not be allowed by law and the Court of Daviess county and the Court of Appeals both decided that sucK an allow anc could not be made then he couldnot be its legal possessor and if not legally entitled to it not entitled to it at all The or der shows that it meant to dodge the law but dodging did not destroy nor impair the force and spirit of the law nor justify or legalize the allowance The levy of321 cents for the building of the bridges at Plumpoint and Milltown was investigated at the time of its allowance and on in vitation of the County Attorney x a number of tHe ablest lawyers of the town decided that the court could legally make the levy Hon James Montgomery Judge James Garnett Gov J R Hind man HonRollin Hurt and we be lieve others all stated tothe court that the levy was clearly legal The law bearing on this matter is as follows Section 1839 The v fiscal court is authorized to levy a tax each year of not over 50 cents That year the leVyfor general purposes was only 17i cents and the bridge levy of32i brought it to the limit under the above section Section 4307 I The fiscal court shall have full power and authority to levy an advalorum taxif or road and bridge purposes not exceeding twen tyfive cfents per year j n each one j ifi t T Z f hundred dollars worth of property assessed for Stateand county tax ations n This does not limit the power of the court to provide for an emergency This section on ly limits the power of the court to provide a road and bridge fund which is intended to keep lip re pairs as wellas aid in their build ing for section 4328 puts it this way In the event a bridge is necessary and the road and bridge fund for that yearis not sufficient then the CQurt may have the bridge built and levy the cost thereof on the county That levy was clearly within l6gallim its while that horse and buggy allowance was beyond the bor ders The Judge says Why did you not raise a racket about the collection of that tax amounting to 537678 every penny of- whichwas unquestionably ille gal We presume you did not consider it of asmuch importance as the 130 allowance simply be wasImay a reelection this year We answer That levy was made to build bridges and they were built the county was the beneficiary and not an individual In the 130 allowance an individual was the recipient ignoring or trying auI feeling into into this controversy a n d yet he knows that it is as foreign to politics as the poles from the equator There is not a Demo cratic candidate for a single cOun- ty office neither do we know that there will be No reference to his party or to ours has been Thejsponsible for his official acts The Republican party is not accused of being a party to the acceptance of 130 nor the parent or guardi an of the road machine It can only become responsible when it endorses the county judges acts and although he seeks to bolster up departing glory yetwe are not inclined to believe that he holds a mortgage on the Republican party of this county The Judge has told of the greatness of the grader he has pointed out the wonderful improvements of the roads but failed to give the full amount of money that hasbeen spent in making them We ask him to let the people know the exact amount of road money re ceived by him from his induction into office to date and then they can determine whether or not they favor the present system The cost of an article is a consid eration with every person How much road money has been col lected how much paid out since you took the oath of office The people are entitled to know this The race for the

relief hence it was necessary to swim for life There being a good tide and the water swift Mr Montgomery took an angling course and after swiming about fifty yards reached the bank in safety though very much exhausted It was evidently a narrow escape an accident that Mr Montgomery hopes Jie will never again experience The norse reached the bank on one side of the river and Mr Montgomery the

states that Mrs Taylor and another lady were sitting up a few nights ago the family of Mr Bry ant having retired Suddenly they heard singing the words 6f the song they had never before heard and after listening all the members of the family got up and asked if they heard the music They could see no one nor hear the footsteps of any person and they at once concluded that the singing was done by the spirit of the departed The singing continued and Mrs Bryant the mother of Johnson memorized the words and now sings them They are about heaven and theangels Further more they declare that they have seen Johnson face to face heard him talk and then see him disappear These people are all reliable and say they cannot be mistaken in what they saw and heard Mr R T Baker of Amandavillewas in town

cases were heard by the Judge The time occupied in hearing each case aver aged 12 minutes You who have happiness in your homes you who are well mated and who have a keen appreciation of the- sanctity of the marriage tie who believe that marriage and morals must be syn onymous can scarcely appreciate the gravity of the situation Mihdyou in New York State there is but one legal cause for divorce Now do you get some idea of the looseness of the marriage bond in a great city Days are consumed by this nations Government the trial of a Mormon It is not pretended that he is a polygamist It js not

business and kill off independent producers of oil was developed in the in vestigation in Kansas the other day It was shown that the oil company forced the railroads operating in the new Kansas oil district to make a ruling which would effectually prevent inde pendent concerns from shipping in tank cars All of the companies in the trans Missouri freight bureau changed their classification and tariff sheets about the time the Kansas oil fields began to show up well and by the change made the only petroleum which would be re ceived for transportation in tank car was that destined to a consignee who possessed storage facilities for the oil after it reached its destination this order almost prohibited independent re theyIof the towns to which they ship ped oilIt been the customof the Standard Oil Company said Frank S Mdnett to have this rule adopted by the railroads in which at owns aninter est just as soon as it is evident tha independent refineries are getting a foothold in the field It is the same method that has been used by the com pany in destroying competition in East erri fields The companies will accept demurrage on any other class of freight t than oil Usually an

safe cracked a short time ago says the Paducah Sun It seems that the bank had a telephone arrangement by which if any one entered the building and tampered with the safe the telephone acted as a burglar alarm by ringing at the ex changeThe burglars didnt know any thing about thisand had no way to find it out As soon as they got inside and went to work the phone began ringing in the exchange The sleepy exchange manit seems never once tumbled to the truth that the bank was being robbed He thought some one was calling and shouted hello several times and then got tired and stopped The phone rang for quite awhile and he kept answering it at intervals but finally conclud ed that something was wrong with the wires and wentJDack to sleep thus failing to take advan tage of one of the best opportunities on record of capturing a daring gang of safe blowers If he had once realized that the bankwas being robbed lie could have aroused enough men to sur round the bank and capture the entire gang redhanded Tile Oyprland Limited to California leaves Union Passenger Station Chicago 605 P M daily arrives in SanS Francisco the third day in time a dinner Route Chicago Milwaukee St

County Located in the viciniiy of Black Bone Ridge are two places of historic interest Near the South ville pike stands an old stone house its exact history or age is not known but it is believed to be the first stone hou3e built in this section of Kentucky On its walls but nearly oblitl ratednow are marks of bullets and many in dentations which are supposed- to have been made by Indians arrowsUnder the ridge is the famous Black Bone Mill Tunnel The strange origin of this tunnel is as follows Many years ago the man that owned Black Bone Mill and the surrounding land found that to use his mill to advantage would necessitate digging a tun nel through the ridge thereby connecting the two creeks He offered one of his slaves freedom if he would dig the tunnel This slave worked at his task twentyone years but his freedom came too late to profit him as he died a few days after the tunnel was completed During the civil war a party of soldiers pursued and wornout with a long march hid in this tunnel for two days The enemy camp ed near and passed directly over them never discovering their whereabouts Shelby Sentinel rI G P Burress of Elkhprn has return ed to the coenty to take up
