More Cities and Towns Build Up and Prosper the Lower Taxes on the Whole People Will Become Editorial from Cynthiana Democrat Oct 3 1903 And the General Assembly may by general laws only authorize cities or towns of any class to provide for taxation for municipal purposes on personal property tangible and intan gible based on income licenses or franchises in lieu of an ad valorem tax thereon provided cities of the first class shall not be authorized to omit the imposition of an ad valorem tax on such property of any steam railroad street railway ferry bridge gas water heating telephone tele graph electric light or electric power company There is the constitutional amend ment upon which the voters are asked to pass judgment at the November election and upon the adoption of which the welfare the alvancement and the continued prosperity of Ken tucky are believed to depend The change is easily understood In stead of raising revenue to pay the expenses of city and town government the salaries of the mayor police firemen the maintenance of the streets public improvements etc by assessing personal property asunder the present laws the egislature may authorize cities and towns to adopt a license system All property real and personal in cities and towns will continue to pay state and county taxes as usual No change whatever will be made in this respect so that people who live in the country may vote for the amendment under the full assurance that it will in no wayaffect their taxes except the more the cities and towns build up and prosper the lower the taxes on tio whole peo pie will become It is certainly nsldng a small favor that voters cast tLor ballots for this amendment at the November election There is little loubt of its passage if the people do not forget or nogirct to vote on the question There is no politics in it AMENDMENT EXPLAINED P N Clarke Says Great Advantages Are to Be Derived From Its Adoption At a meeting of the Louisville Credit Mens Association a few nights ago Mr Peyton N Clarke Secretary of the State Committee which is managing the campaign for the constitutional amendment explained the advantages to be derived from the adoption of the amendment He said For years under or former con stitution all cities and town had the privilege of home rule and the right to tax themselves for municipal purposes without interference from anyone It was argued by some however that this was a power no town or city should have and the wisu makers of our new constitution said that it would never dothat all property shouid be taxed alike So the revenue law was chaiigedS V But the result haspnjved the fall acy of the idea andtieMfect has been exactly contrary to the design Under our present law the grossest inequalities in assessments prevail and there is jnot a single advantage to compensate for the innovation When every persons is his own assessor it is not strancr that there should be great Irregularities The rich man easily escapes his fair share of taxation as he covers up his stores of wealth while the poor man With his all invested in a modest home has to pay more than his share because all he has is in sight and cannot be hid den from the assessor wThe proposed amendment will remedy all this to a great extent If simply authorizes the legislature by general act to permit all cities and towns to raise revenue for local purposes by licenses franchises etc on personal property instead of the present ad valorem system Its object is obvious Under the new law our merchants manufactureri and financial institutions will pay li censes and avoid the necessity of fio titious retunu to the assessor All personal property subject to taxation will pay its fair share of taxes and by equalizing the burden it will sit lightly QnalL Under thllew law we can invIte capital and industry with assurances of welcome and out state will flour- Ish as a green bay tree r Tile ailiemdment risa step forward and will

InvolvedS Vinita I fThe commercial inter ests in the Indian territory are ing to take up the fight in the session of congress to make comingj out of Indian and Oklahoma tories It is contended that Indian territory should be admitted as a state with Oklahoma on the same footing On March 4 1906 the tribal govern ments will go out of existence and the tribal officers will under the present law pass into history as the last offi cers of the five tribes It is probable that after this day not even a single tribal officer will be permitted to ex crcise any of the prerogatives of his officeThe chief of the Cherokees has be lieved all the time that when he was elected in August 1903 for a term of four years some provision would be made for his continuance in office after the tribal governments became recentrul11ngSoCtheinterior none of the tribal funds can be used to support Cherokee schools is taken to mean that none of the tribal funds can be used to pay the chiefs salary Another fact which lends credence to the belief that the governors and chiefs of the five tribes will be no longer officers after March is that the governors of the Choctaw and Chick asaw nations have been obstreperous and have been resisting the interior department in the matter of the delivery of deeds The monthly reports of the heads of departments in the office of Tarns Bix by commissioner to the five civilized tribes since he bas succeeded the Dawes commission indicate that the work of allotment is progressing in a highly satisfactory manner The work in the Creek nation and in the semI inole country is practically completed and it is believed that the work in the Cherokee nation will be practically completed by the first of the year It is also believed that the Choctaw and Chickasaw land offices will soon follow the Cherokee office in complet lug the work of allotment It is believed here that with the coming of statehood congress will re move the restrictions upon the aliena

that eats its head off about three or four times a year The hog pen is the logical banking institution on the farms and the farmer can draw on his account any day in the year Everlastingly at it is the suc cessfulhogm n smotto You cant make the most of the pigs nd slight them for one single day The State fairs are the best educatorsve have for the rank and file of hog growers They set higher ideals for men to work The high grade hogs now found on the average farm trace- through the best and purest ancestry known to the hog breeding world Dont worry about feeding the sow till the litter is a day or two old at least and then go slow Feed something light and cool ingThere is a better margin for profit in a wellfed litter of pigs than may be found in any other like investment of money on the farmEx There has been the natural controversy started rending Miss Alice Roosevelts return to the United States as to whether or not she has done right in accept ing many handsome and costly gifts that have been pressed on her by the sovereigns she has visited It is said in some quar ters that she is bringing back to the United States gifts aggrega ting to value 100000 Now it is seldom decent to drag the families of public men especially the fem inine members of the families into a newspaper discussion But there has been much controversy on this subject and it seems only fair to point out that Miss Roosevelt would have been put in a very embarrassing position if she had declined the gifts tendered her Whether the value is 100 000 or 100000 cents is beside the mark She was visiting countries where the bestowal of gifts is a mark of courtesy and good will If it was pearls in Jolo jade in China or lacquer work in Japan she would have been considered in those countries very churlish if she declined She is the only daughter of the White House who has ever had the opportunity to be so honorea abroad 600 QIYEN AWA I Christmas Presents for Sub scribers to fbe weekly

the improvements that have been made in Adair county in the last fifty years Like first creation a new world has been- ushered from the dark chaos of heathenism and transformed in to a populous city or a fruitful field as but in a short period of a day QUI magic wand of sciences upward and onward and ever arch to glory gheiacilitiesinAdair county Fifty years ago there was nota post office between Columbia a n d Campbellsville until I had the of fice at Cane Valley established Now there are five imnlediatelyj on the pike towns and if I mistake not there was not more than six or seven in the County We had to pay five cents in coin to transmit a letterS anywhere in the state Now we have post offices in every neighI borhood in the County telephone as speedIwonderful In the second place I will tell something about the improvements in the way the farmers had to cut and separate theirI wheat from the straw and Sixty years ago they had to cut theirvheatvithreap hooks My grandfother had six reap hooks and as many negro men When the wheat was ripe those negro men would go in the wheat fields with their reap hooks and gatherII a handfull with one with the other hand cut the bunch and lay it down and repeat it till they got enough for a bundle They would cut large fields that way and when it come to separate the grains from the heads they would clean offa level place on the ground and tromp it hard with horses and then lay the wheat in a circle with the butts down then three or four boys riding one horse and leading one and in this way they would tramp out hundreds of bushels but as time elapsed my father built a large barn with a tight floor and got his wheat out in the barn but erelong the horse tramping was suppressed by the groundhog thresher prop lled by horses In a few years the groundhog thresher was left and the separator took its place still propelled by horse power Now we have the traction en gines going from field to field threshing thousands of bushels in a very short time We now see our country great in arts and in arms Our golden imjmeasurable merce penetrating the most distant seas and our railroads carry IngQ products to all the mar kets in the world Sixty years ago we had but one voting place in the County that was Colum bia we had three days election thenrstMnday Tuesday and Wednesday in Auguest On those d ysthere would be more white men

that arrangements had been made to have 200 negroes from New Albany register in Louis yule by the managers of the Democratic campaign is one of the most absurd charges in our mind that could be made Everybody knows that the negro is not democratic everybody is familiar with the fact that he is republi can and that such a scheme would be foolish as well as dangerous to democratic interests Th e Post ought to seek and publish more plausible theories if it hopes to advance its political interests The Louisville campaign seems to be as dirty as it is and we care but little about it but riIfiers

feeders have to confront is chap ness in gains At times the mar ket is bad but we have to work against this by producing cattle at the cheapest cost and this is- the main point of our study The experiment stations have furn ished us many tables from which we can learn and if we are not prepared to feed exactly after the manner of the best in the ta ble we can at least modify itand feed as near like it as possible We can figure to use what feed we have on hand and then we can make a table of own Of course we must study when the market will be best but the cost of production is more impor tantoIvill give the way I like to feed which I know will also prove the best for many farmers throughout the country says a writer in Farm and Fireside I like to begin just as soon as lean get roasting ears and cut and feed the whole plant keeping the cattle on good pasture as long as I have it The experiment sta tions have also found out that the best gains can be made with cattle while on grass I feed this green corn as long as they will readily eat the leaves You can get the most out of the corn plant by feeding it at this time Eating this corn in connection with the green sta1k and good grass cattle make good gains at small expense- I keep them on grass as long as there is grass and when they do not eat corn blades 1 pick the ears and continue feeding to the end When the grass gives out I give clover hay in connection with the corn and that is about the best the practical farmer can do for the winter I like to make a short feed and get quick re turns for the cattle and the corn crop In this way you will gen erally get the best market for the corn crop Sometimes I do not feed later than Thanksgiving but at times I feed later when the market suits There is another point that must be remembered in feeding cattle and that is that the stock should have good pure water This is often neglected and the actual loss from it is greaterthan is supposed by many I know of one load of cattle which was giv en impure water and I believe that the owner lost more than enough to pay for a good well Feeding cattle on grain and then requiring them to drink muddy water is wasteful Feeding cat tle should have good water and plenty of it and salt should be before them all the time Made a Hit When Dr W B CaldVvell the sage of Monticello first prescribed his great remedy for

PROFESSOR ALLOWS 500000 VOLTS TO ENTER BODY Not Even Slightest Injury Attends Shock Sufficient to Kill 250 CriminalsPhenomenon Explained Lynn MassA modern Ajax ha put in the shade the lightning defy ing feats of the hero of Greek an tiquity Prof Elihu Thomson o Lynn permitted more than half million volts of electricity to paS through his body recently and about it In the electrocution of trim ihals only 2000 volts is used Prof Thomson showed how safe it is to handle bottled lightning when a person possesses a thorough knowledge of the science of electricity in an exhibition before the Commercial club of Boston the members of which were his guests He took the 50000 0 and odd volts with less excitement than would be displayed by an ordinary man who takes a shock from a nickelintheslot dynamic apparatus In fact Prof Thomson did not show the twitch of a lip or the blink of an eyeThirtythreeme nbers of the club connected with electric works experts on their own part watched the preparations for the exhibition and awaited in ghastly silence the completion of the circuit that carried a current properly dividedsufficient to cause humanIcoolest man in the laboratory When the apparatus was adjusted cold perspiration stood out on the foreheads of the distinguished company as Prof Thomson calmly approached the contact with the high frequency curI theIflash Streamers of brilliant fire shot from the demonstrators finger tips and electric sparks two feet long flew Into the air in quick succession il luuiinating two incandescent lights that were placed that distance from the fingers An instant later when the beholdersi were recovering from the shock that had taken place Prof Thomson was smiling at them and treating the whole test as a joke He displayed not the faintest tre mor and declared he had not enced the slightest physical discomI- fort Following the demonstration he explained why enough electricity toi kill 250 criminals can enter and the human body without the least lan1 ger provided his controlled properly j The explanation put in simple language IS that it is the vibrationvof the serves that is deadly in an electric shock Jf the nerves act more quickly than the vibrations the victim dies A half million volts vibrates so quicklj that the current passes into the body and out again before the nerves haveI time to be affected iCHICKENS
