General Feeling of the People GOOD ROADS MORE BRIDGES Mr G A Atkins of Milltown was in our town last week and stated to a news man I am glad to see you agitat ing the bridge and road propositions I am heartily in favor of both and hope that Adair county will build an other bridge this year and also pur chase a rock crusher They are both needed and no mistake can be made along this line The majority of the people are largely infavor of better roads and more bridges and will cheer fully pay thier assessments if the mo ney is judiciously used I hope these matters will be pushed to completion sMr 1 am heartily in favor of making good roads and building substantial bridges Both are indispensable to the welfare of the people of this county 1 favor building a bridge at Neatsville at the earliest day possible The ford is dan gerous and often the river cannot be crossed I am willing to pay my tax and make an extra contribution to se cure this much needed improvement We can probalysecure us much as 800 might get a little more but our com munity is not so able to contribute as some others It seems to me that th fiscal court ought to take this matte r up and not require too much from ou community There is not a crossing in the county that would better serve th traveling public In conversation with Mr W A Gar nett of the Glenville section he said I am not an enthusiast for bridges a our immediate section does not need them but I am not opposed to bridging the streams in our county where they are needed and while I do not feel like making an outside contributiony yet I will cheerfully pay a reasonable tax for that purpose I dont blame the people who need bridges to go after them in real earnest As to roads our section is in the need and I heartily endorse any move that will better their condition The grader has been work ed on our roads and in places good has been accomplished while in others the road has really been worsted On the whole I do not believe that the grader alone canao what we need Use the grader and follow with crushed stone and we wiil make lasting roads I believe thaf the magistrates ought fb buy a stone crusher and feel certain they would have the hearty endorse ment of a majority of our people The roads are fearfully bad aryl demand all we can do to make them solid and substantial I am for a crusher Capt W W Bradshaw j makes the following statement There is not a man in this county more enthusiastic for good roads than myself I believe we are nearing the beginning of a movement that will revolutionize matters in this county for it seems almost a certainty to me that our Fiscal Court will take up the question of making good roads The overwhelming voice of the people is for better roads I be lieve in levying the highest tax that the law will permit for the purpose of making substantial highways Already the town Council has purchased a rock crusher and is arranging for its immediate use Dirt nor sand and gravel will not make a permanent road It takes crushed stone and the soon we realize this as a ewe will better understand what to do I feel safe sayfugthat Columbia willdem onstrateto the county the value of making substantial streets and roads 1 favor bridges but at present believe that we had better put our entire sur t v j vtvxy H 1 t R t V fr J L plus means in working roads and later take up the bridges You may say emphatically that I favor the purchase of a rock crusher for the county and trust that this may be accomplished at the Aprilmeeting We mnstget out of the mud L M Wilmore of Gradyville states I am in favor of good roads I believe that stone of some kind ought to be placed on the grades As to a stone crusher I do not know what it would C9st but if the county buys I will pay my tax and not grumble I am not op posed to bridges where needed but we do not need them in our part of the county Gov J R Hindman expresses himself as follows I am for the purchase of a rock crusher I understand the town has already decided to purchase one Nothing is worth as much to a county as good roads we findplenty of stone which shouldbe utilized in mak ing good roads and with a crusher the stone could be used at no great cost and the county be much benefitedby the in vestment in a stone crusher I am for bridges as well as road Mr James Naylor expresses himself as follows I am in favor of the Fis cal Court taking a progressive step buy a couple of rock crushers and put them to work Our roads will never be any better in Winter time unless we put on stone I do not know the limit of tax for thispurpose but I believe in itethere until we get some roads I am a hoperthat three or four may be built where isein favor of good roads so now is the time in my judgment to hart the work THIEFs Operated at Home While the Cole man Family Watched uRaf fies Steal While the family of Billy Cole man proprietor of the Southern pool room were watching Rafflles steal diamonds at the Auditorium last night areal diamond thief was ransacking tneir house at 240 Cedar street When the family arrived home they found things in dire confusion with drawers pulled out and articles scatter ed about The burglars secured about 40 in cash and took two valuable diamond rings and Mrs Colemans highly treas ured wedding ring Strange to say they left Mr Cole mans gold watch undisturbed where it lay on the

Jury After Deliberating Several Hours Sets Up the Second Will of Decedent The trial of the Butler will case ended on last Wednesday after having been tried before Judge Baker and a Jury for the nine preceding days Judge W W Jones and Mr Jas Garnett were the attorneys for Mrs Bettie W But ler who was the sole devisee in exec utrix of and propounder of the will made by Judge Butler on the 27th day of March 1905 After the death of Judge Butler this will was probated in the Adair County Court at its August term 1905 This will devised all of the property to Mrs Bettie W Butler but contained a request that Mrs Butler would by will or in some way provide a suitable provision for Mrs Grace Butler Brahshaw who is a neice of Mrs Butler and an adopted daughter of Judge Butler and his wife This request however left it to the discretion of Mrs Butler as to whether she wouldmake any provision for Mrs BradShaw or not and the nature of the provision was also left to her discretion It appears that on the 20th day of Feb ruary 1905 Judge Butler had made another will and theretofore about the 25th day of January 1905 he had made another will r- At the County Court in December 1905 Mrs Sallie F Smith Col E Butler Joshua Butler DH Butler Wm Butler James Butler MrpMyra Moore and Mrs Nellie Conover who are brothers and sisters of Judge Bu- tlermd N C Butler a son of Capt N G Butler deceased and the chil dred of Isaac Butler another deceased brother of Judge Butler by their attor neys Mr Jas F Montgomery and Rollin Hurt made a motion to propound and admit to record the will dated February 20th 1905 At the County Court in January their motion was overruled and thereupon they took an appeal to the Circuit Court from the order rejecting the February will and also an appeal from the order of the County Court made in August 1905 admitting to probate the will dated March 27 1905 Their contention was that when the will dated March 27 1905 was executed thatJudge Butler had not capacity sufficient to make a will and was laboring under undue influence ex erted upon him by other persons and that he was in that condition when the will of February 20 1905 was destroy edOn the day that the County Court overruled the motion of the brothers and sisters to probate the February will Mrs Grace Butler Bradshaw by her attorneys Mr Henry Aaron and Geo E Stone took an appeal to the Adair Circuit Court from the order of the County Court probating the will of March 27 1905 In the Circuit Court the appeals of Mrs Same F Smith c and the a= peal of Mrs Grace Butler Bradshaw were consolidated and tried as one case On the trial the contention of Mrs Bradshaws attorneys was that Judge Butler died intestate that he had not capacity to make either the February or March wills andwasfUndulyin fluenced to do so The result of the trial was that Wednesday last the jury returned a verdict rejecting the will made on March 27 1905 and finding that the will made on the 20th day of February 1905 wasthe true last will and testament of Judge Butler This will had been destroyed in March 1905 but the juryfound what its contents were from the evidence adduced on the trial F The provisions of the will of Febru ary 20 1905 are as follows viz it first devuecto the brothers in4 sisters ot JudgeButler ho are living and tortile t i I j1rt f it f lr i1 i vir p tc Y f t heirs of those who are not dead the sum of 5000 to be divided among them The remainder of the property is de vised to MrsBettie W Butler for and during her lifetime and ather death to Mrs Grace Butler Bradshaw but with Ishouldshall then be divided equally betweenI the brothers and sisters of ler and the brothers and sisters and their heirs of Mrs Bettie W Butler The proof developed that the estate was worth about 20000 All the lawyers in the case acquitted themselves well their speeches being pronounced by the large audience pres ent the most argumentative delivered in the courthouse for many years 4f THE FRAZER SUIT i I The Heirs of Mrs Ermine Page Win Before Judge J S Kelly A suit that has been in court since 1872 was settled at a special term of the Adair Circuit Court last week Judge John S Kelly of Bardstown sitting oy appointment Hon Logan Igrter of Glasgow and Judge W W Jones and Hon J F Montgomery of the local bar appear ed for the heirs of Mrs Page and Judge H C Baker was the attorney for rater heirs The suit was brought by plaintiflsto recover the amount of money due Mrs Page Mrs Page is dead and it is her children and grandchildren who instituted the suit It is a long story as the trouble which led to it commenced in 1859 At the time W E Frazer who was a wealthy mer chant of this place died but before his death Mrs Page and her brothers and sisters became estranged and she with her husband Dr George Page re moved to Barren county and all com munications ceased between the two families In tfthe meantime W E Frazer7 who was rapidiy declining died leaving a will cutting out Mrs Page unless she became reconciled to her mother brothers and sisters When Mr Frazer died Mrs Page came to Columbia and remained with the family several days and her attorneys claim at thattime all differences were adjusted and an amiable reconciliation made The defendants deny but Judge Kelly decided that by reason of Mrs Pages visit at the death of her brother and the further reason that one of her daughters had written letters to Mrs Kate Alexander an aunt apprising her of the death of her mother Mrs Page showed a disposition to become friendly and that tne heirs of Mrs Page were entitled to their mothers part and he so decided There is six thousand dollars in trust and judgments amounting to 12000 against the other Frazer heirs The case will go to the Court of Ap peals GOOD WILL Gov J R Hindman Shows Good t Will for the Old School Last Thursday morning Governor J R Hindman gave a short spicy lucture to the students in the M F School which was highly enjoyed by all pres entFor many years Governor Hind man was a trustee of that institution and up to this good hour has not lost lips love for ifs welfare While at pres ent he is a member of the Educational Board of the Louisville Conference un der which the LindsayWilson School is directed and while heirs an enthusiast for his school yet his love and edmira ti nfo his old school stillexists HoV good it in any

Gravel for Good Streets Last week the Town Council purchased a stone crusher and directed it ship F reo ceiveda location will be selected and work will begin The irfachine js of the latest and most approved mechanism and capable of crushing 10 or 20 tons within ten hours Arrangements have not yet been made for the power but for the present at least the Council will not buy an en gine but lease for a short while as there are several in reach that can be secured at reasonable rates This is the first and most important step taken by the present Council to bring about betterand more lasting streets The fact is that before the first month had expired a crusher had been purchased We are sufficiently acquainted with the mind and purposes of the Mayor and every member of the Council as to feel safe in saying that a new era has dawned that the beginning of healthy public conditions in Columbia has already come The improvement and building of good subtantial sidewalks will come next Spring and Sum mer The Town Council is progressive and will do for Columbia just what the Fiscal Court we hope will do for the county make improvements t atwiIl last A BRICK PLANT Messrs Geo Smith

Some time ago Mr Wm Spears of that sec tion was tearing down an old dwelling and found a twist of tobacco that had been deposited before the house had been remodeled In tracing the date I of its reconstruction the oldest citizens of the section date itback 72 years agoA Just how long the tobacco had been there before that could not be determined but at any rate it was placed before the house was rebuilt It has lost its strength and flavor but its color is in tact showing that it was at one time strong and vigorous Doubtless the one who deposited there has long since quit the walks of life

some ten days ago and delivered to magistrate Jake Dorn here charged with criminal assault on one Miss Soard The magistrate allowed him bail in the sum of 50 for his appearance for trial but trial day brought no Carman and word came that he had skip ped the country The case is said to have been a very aggra vated one and the people are very indignant at the action of tee magistrate for his leniency

the great principles that govern cause and effect one who has devoted many hours to ferreting out the inex plainable causes that govern in the rep- rOduction of sexes of animals accord ing to the desires of the breeder has found that there is a principle within the reach of man that can as truly goV- ern in matters of this kind as the re production of grain Following his theory he has demonstrated its correct ness without a single failure and while not inclined to gamble would make a big stake he can produce either sax as he desires with cattle He has never experimented with other stock but believes the theory will not vary He has two Jersey cows that have dropped him six calves each and out of the doz en has never been disappointed in a single instance In breeding to a Jer seysire he has bred for heifer calves and when crossing with a Shorthorn his purpos e is to secure male calves Nine heifer Jersey calves hav thus been produced and three male Shorthorns Some four or five yearsI ago beef cattle were high while miJchI stock declined in price It was then that Mr Price bred for male calves and in due time rejoiced in their ap perance and soidthemthat Fall at fancy prices The secret of this theory would be valuable to dairymen but up to date x Mr Price has never made it public claiming that its value alone belongs to him and that such a theory when its worth has

Hours TONS OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES ABOARD The Firemen Succeeded hi Preventing the Flames From Reaching That Portion of the Vessel Three Men Were Killed and 53 Injured Mostly By Suffocation The Cause of the Fire Is Being Investigated San Francisco Fob 2Tl1ree men were killed and 58 injured mostly by suffocation in a fire that raged on the United States transport Meade as she flay at the Folsom street dock early in the morning For three hours after midnight the swpIasmen were borne in an almost continu ous stream Relays of men promptly stepped forward to take the places ofi those who were carried out unconscious Tons of high explosives were loaded in the after part of the vessel quid the firemen worked with the possibility ever before them that the flames would reach this compartment Had this occurred the whole city would have probably been shaken by a terrific explosion and no man aboard the ship would have escaped Owing probably to the fact that ant infernal machine was found in the bunkers of the transport Thomas in her last voyage the rumor was circulated that a plot had been laid to fire the Meade at sea as she was to have de parted for Manila Thursday Maj C A Devol chief of the transport service is investigating this theory with great care The Loss Was Trifling He is having the cargo taken from compartment No 2 where the fire started with a view of discovering the real cause of the disaster The flames did not spread from compartment 2 Dock Captain Dun gave it as his opin ion that some of the officers had pack ed matches in their trunks and that these were ignited in loading One officer places the damage to personal effects at from 50000 to 200000 The vessel is not very seriously injured and will be ready to sail for Manila next Saturday The surprising fact developed late Thursday that the property loss amounted to only 85 This was the estimate made by Maj Devol When the water had been pumped from the hold and the debris removed it was ascertained that the fire had been confined to a space about six feet square There was very little flames the fire being of a smoldering variety that emitted great volumes of smoke There were fears that some of the officers effects had been destroyed but investigation showed these goods to be safe- Cincinnati Feb 2The second infantry which was about to go aboard the transport Meade at San Francisco when it

Government Bonds Frankfort Ky Feb tThe Ken tucky National banks won a big victory in the court of appeals and it will likely result in a law being passed by the legislature that will provide a uniform way to tax the shares of both state and national banks The case decided was the Marion National bank vs Barton sheriff and the question was whether in fixing the value of the shares of stock in the bank for taxa tion the bank has the right to have deducted the amount of its govern ment bonds from the amount of its Shares of stock The state banks are assessed for franchise taxation but the state supreme court has decided that national banks can only be assessed on the value of their shares of stock The national baniks claimed that in arriving at the franchise value of the state banks the board allowed the state banks to deduct securities which was discrimination and refused to pay taxes on their shares of stock unless their government bonds were also de ducted CREEK FARMER 1COWAN The
