iyw crossingd his horsef ell l tt had it not been for the assistance of of several men who were present at that time This is one of the places that needs a bridge It is the place that the people asked our last court to build a bridge and offered 800 con tribution How long will such condi tions be permitted to exist to endan ger life cannot now be stated TheI people ought to awake to the import ance of a few more bridges and good roads The game of base ball on the grounds- of the LindsayWilson last Saturday between our home boys divided on po litical lines was fairly well attended when weather conditions were considered The ground was wet and slick and part of the time a slight rain was falling At any rate it was a splendid game until it was abruptly terminated in the first half of the ninth inning by the re fusal of the Democratic team to further play This action was the result ofIdecision of the umpire which the boys thought against them Ewing Stults was the runner and it was claimed that he failed to touch a base but the um pire was watching the ball and not the runner so his decision was made accord ingly This so nettled the temper of the Democratic pitcher Tim Cravens that he refused to further play This action met with a quick second from the catcher J E Bobo and then the game was all off The score stood at that time 7 to 6 in favor of the Repub lican team and they had 2 men out one on third base and their last chance at the bat The Democratic team was en titled to the bat again had they finished the game Mr T C Davidson was um pire and so far as we were able to discern ruled as he believed right in every instance without fear or favor Below we give the game as the score card showsInnings 12345678 9fRepublicans 11100001 37 Democrats 02100021 6 The Green County Turnpike Company has at at last overcome all troubles threatening the building of the pike from Greensburg to the Adair county line and will let it to contract July the first The day of doubting and guess work has passed and it will be built be yond a doubt We are glad toknow that all parties heretofore refusing to give the right of way have seen it to their interest and the public welfare to make reasonable concessions to the company seekingto build the road It the best both for private and public welfare Three cheers for The Green County Turnpike Company and three big strong ones for its president Mr J A Dulworth who has worked un ceasingly to accomplish such a valuable enterprise Mr L L Eubankandwife who have so long beenconnectedwith Mr W L Walkers store has resigned their posi tions by mutual agreement Mr Eu bank is a carriage makerj and will en gage in that business on IWater Street The shop that is now being occupied by Mr Eubanks father will be raised and a large business house will be erected Mr Eubank is a fine mechanic both in wood and iron and it dis predicted that he will do a payingjbusiness The only reason for Mr and Mrs Eubank quitting the store was that they believed that it would financially be to their interest Mr W T McFarland has killed 35 moles up to this writing since the sea son opened Early in the spring these little ground workers showed up to be very active on Mr McFarlands plan tation so he decided to exterminate them if possible At this writing he has all but three that has been in his corn field as he figures and by and by they will be gathered in Talk about moles crows and cut worms but the way to protect your planting is to do as Mr McFarland has donekill every one but three and then kill the three The death of Mr Woody Petty of Inroad last Tuesday removed from that section and from this county one of its best citizens He had reached a old age being near the four score milestone in the journey of life He had not enjoyed good health for sever oilgly confined to hiss room a short while Mr Petty was an upright citizen a man of industry and had acquired by his energy plenty for the rainy day r ELBOW SLEEVES AND JUMPERS t I am unable to say where elbow sleeves aid to any extent the appear ance of a girl or womans dress They are a whim of fashion in the extreme and the pace is once set it is womans disposition to get in the mad whirl re gardless of what the consequences may be or they expect to be the target ofJ remarks by other girls and women forinot dressing up to the top notch the fashion of the day ftograce and beauty of a young woman but according to my way of seeing I fail to grasp the matter in that lightrOf course a well rounded short arm looks decidedly more pleasing in elbow sleeves than a long bony one Ifwvsome women knew how absurd they J appear in short sleeves they would certainly wear them of a more desira ble length especially on the streets and in other public places may be occasions when elbow ITheremay be worn with more propri as evening social functions and other places of entertainment where young women usually wear del icate fabric for dress but when they appear upon the streets with their bare arms exposed to the rays of the sun it seems to me that they are going to the l extreme for the sake of fashion Then again these little Peekaboo concerns called jumpers are preposterous in their makeup Most of them seem to have been cut when there was a scarce ity of cloth I have heard the opinions of men who said that if they were a young lady and could not wear a gar ment with more cloth in it than a jumper they would discard the whole thing and substitute something else in its stead I have no criticisms to make about womans dress because it does not con cern me one way or the other I have merely made these remarks to express my views upon the subject F McL ft r WORK OF THE GRAND JURYFOR t TY TWO IN TROUBLE The work of the Grand Jury came to a finish since our last issue and while the number of indictments are not asInumerous as many such similar bodies have presented in this county yet a detectIwhere ever the evidence would warrant There is not a doubt but that those who composed the jury made an honest in 1 telligent effort and this being true indi cates that a higher regard for law and order is in evidence in this part of the state It would be a great blessing if all could rise to the full and complete obediance to law but such a state of affairs will never happen in this or any other section so the only remedy is through good courts of inquiry and rigid prosecution The indictments are as follows Murder detaining a woman 1 malicious cutting 1 cruelty to beast 1 selling liquors unlawfully 7 breach of the peace 15 reckless use of weapons 3 concealed weapons 6 gaming 1 dis turbingassembly4 injuring property 1 itl i A CALL Tothe Republican voters of Adair Coun ty There will be a Mass Convention of Republicans of

the Democratic party over the tariff in 1883 John G Carlisle and Samuel J Randall of Pennsylvania were leaders of the two factions and both were candidates for the Speakership Of these two men Miss Tarbell writes in part Sam Randall was an ignorant man whose only real school had been the questionable one of Philadelphia ward politics and in this his own father had been his mas ter It was not alone his parlia mentary skill which won him fol lowers His presence counted for much Randall was one of the handsomest men of his day with a face chiseled like an old Romans and lit by a pair of large dark eyes of amazing fire and softness Speak of Sam Randall today to one of his old colleagues and it will not be long before he will tell you with softened voice of those wonderful eyes that classic face Randallsforce and charm were such that they over came his lack of studious habits of reflection and of broad views But Randall was dealing with a bigger force and a bigger man in 1883 than he realized John G Carlisle his opponent was the nearest approach to a statesman then in the United States Congress He had come to his place through means which it is doubtful Randall could appreci ate Born on a Kentucky farm he had spent his early youth at farm work the nights over books He had become a school teacher and in his leisure had read law Admitted to the bar he had continued to study until he was called the ablest lawyer in the state Admitted to the state legislature he had become a leader of his party through force of his inbi tellectual vigor Carlisle had first entered the House in 1878 sixteen years after Randall and he immediately made a deep im pression on the country by his thorough mastery of subjects his clearness of statement his gravity and candor in argument and his freedom from the trickery and deceits of partisan politics The Magic No 3 Number three is a wonderful mascot for Geo H Parris of Cedar Grove Me according to a letter which reads Af

them selves of the decision of the Court of Appeals ousting the Louisville Democratic officials Kentuckians everywhere love aI fair deal and if the officials our biggest city held their posi tions by an unfair deal then it was time they should step down and out In the eyes of right abfraud is just as heinous as any other kind Politics make no difference here A thug is a thug be he a Democrat or Re publican be he white or black Court of Appeals holds rtfrom the evidence submitted to them that thugism played an important part in the Louisville election in 1905 The court does riot say that the Democratic offi cials are thugs and election thieves but it says they abtained their victory through the opera tion of fraudulent voting and ballot stuffing They therefore do not hold their offices by any right legal or moral Hence they must step down and out The Courts decision is the most remarkable of the kind ev er handed down in the political history of the State It is an epoch maker as it marks the be ginning of honest politics in the cities of our State It is the forerunner of a brighter day in the old commonwealtha day which all lawabiding citizens hail with delight When the fu ture historian of our Statein his chroniclesreaches this period he will have just cause to note with emphasis and to dwell at some length upon this decision of our highest court and to close the chapter

Grover Cleve land had no special knowledge of the tariff and no desire to revise PresijdencyThis is denied by Ida M Tar bell in the June American Magazine Miss Tarbell writes It has been frequently said that when Grover Cleveland be came President of the United States he knew nothing of the tariff At least one tariffexpert of that day had a very different opinion In an interesting un published manuscript of reminis cences by the late prof Perry of Williams College there is an ac count of a talk the Professor had with Mr Cleveland in the Fall of perIryin behalf of the free trade at a public meeting the Democratic leaders had theaafternoon before the lecture he had been taken to the capital to meet the Governor He and stood in the corridor for half anI hour talking on the subject which had brought me to AlbanrI Professor Perry w r i t e Governor as was proper did most of the talking and his interlocutor was surprised at his views on the whole tariff ques tion and began to think he had this time TewbCastle since the first official in the State apparently knew as much about tariffs as he did and could express himself even better The Governor said he was glad I came to Albany himself but hoped every body else would go and on parting gave me his best wishes for the efforts made and effortsb making in behalfof the r he seemed to be familiar He impressed me as few men ever

adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postomce as second class mail matter WED JUNE 5 1907 The Columbia Spectator after reproducing our statement The good old summer time is now here to stay we hope with out further interruptions from the North Pole brenzes com mented as follows The only thing that proves absolutely that Editor Harris is not a complete failure as a weather prophet is his We hope and hope implies belief So we must of necessity say that he will have to prophesy again Things may be warm for him but we dont find r them so up here True we missed the mark of our expectancy on the rise of the mercury last week but Things may be warm for him is en tirely too modest to clearly con vey a true idea of the temperature on the ground floor down here It was a hot time last week for the News gave a con cise report of a great Republican County Convention without fear or favor The fact that the News has not been cold nor in a stupor for a long time and never did have a chill is sufficient evidence of ample heat regardless of wind or weather An open determined advocacy of a pro gressive public policy will destroy that chillysensation so common with many local publications It is folly tofsuffer with cold feet or to contend with chills when the pencil is full of heat and sun shine The world needs both and no where are they more se verely needed than in this sec tion Itis still warm on the ground floor and evidence of plenty heat for several months is insight NO MONKEY BAKING Thursday evening of last week the Campbellsville base ball team defeated the Columbia team on their own grounds by the score 11 to 9 After the third inning Columbia was never in the game a little bit and our kid team made Brother Harris great giants of the base ball world look like the verrible thirty cent piece Our boys claim they defeated the club and the umpire both Send them over here sometime when they learn how to play and we will make monkeys out of emCampbellsville Enquirer The News has heretofore acknowl edged the defeat above referred to and published the scores as they were made We placed every flower in the crown of the visiting team to which it was entitled and offered no appology for our team outside of this The Co lumbia team failed to play up to its ability made some bad errors not usually made by any of its players got outplayed and lost the victory In fairness to all parties there is no just groundto claim that the umpire was partial or that his decisions were not rendered according to judgment The Campbellsville team got a fair square deal won the game and is not justified in criticising the umpire Just what it takes to get beyond the kidhood stage in base ball playing in Campbellsville is hard to understand if the Enquirer is correct that it was a kid team That team was made up of some of the best ball players that could be from Center College to the Southern limits of that beautiful little city onthe t Greensburg branch of the L Nand f I iiJjcot twined married men as well as any eligibles for matrimony who had Isced swift balls on many other tocca fens We dont take to the proposi 4 i Y tion of making monkeys out of men A fair square

the attorneys for the prose cution in their efforts to convict the Hargises and Callahans of complicity in the Breathiot of assassination and terror orgiesI disheartened Representing the cause of law and justice they repeatedly have conducted an admirable and determined fight for their side against conditions that are revolting to friends of law and believers in integrity of courts Their task was one requiring courage for they had to face the murder syndicate in its own territory It requires shrewdness for them were arrayed consciencelessI cliques who were stoop to devices more cunning than commendable It requires tenacity for the defendants have proved themselves elusive It demanded and abiding faith in the ultimate triumph of justice for they saw operations of power in high places which must have- been sufficient to make them question the chances of justice for the present The ultimate triumph of justice seems greatly delayed The Breathitt murders have been going on for years and the victims lie rotting in their graves yet except for the imprisoning of Curt Jett the leading spirits are still to pay the penalty of crime The conspirators yet pre vail The prosecuting lawyers have won the admiration of the best elements of citizenship by their superb activities against the defendants in the Breathitt casenot only admiration but gratitude That they were op posed by masters of a vicious sit uation in official quarters was not their fault but their misfor tune as it was the misfortune of outraged champions of law and thebagents of law In Sandy Hook so the Courier Journal correspondent on the scene writes sentiment favors the Hargis crowd Of course That is why the Hargis crowd thought Sandy Hook would be a fine place for the trial It is be cause of the situation they find in Sandy Hookthis isolated town tucked away in the remote heart cf the mountainsthat the prosecuting lawyers doubt the advisability ofproceeding to the trial Apparently they feel a trial under the circumstances would be futile if not farcical If they are disheartened no wonderBut futile farcical trial in Sandy Hook could be no worse except in degree than other fu tile farcical trials which have gone before Besides every such trial helps to awaken the pepple of Kentucky to the dangerous and degraded state of af fairs which is eating out decency in the official structure of the State

the United States will be observed as a public holiday and devoted to the commemoration ofI the Union soldiers who fell in Civil War and to the decorationIof their graves It however losing the features a sectional day and becoming ofI on which the animosities of war are minimized and the fra ternal feelings between the survivors of the two contending armies are strengthened By State and not national law it is a legal holiday in all the Northern States except Idaho and in all the South ern States except Florida Georgia Louisana Mississippi North Carolina South Carolina Tenn essee and Texas In Virginia it is known as Confederate Memo rial day The custom of decorating the graves of those who fell in the war originated in the South soon after its close In New Orleans and other cities of the South where November first All Saints Day is observed and the graves of the dead are strewn with flowers the custom of dec orating the graves of the soldiers by their surviving comrades was early inaugrated and became a fixed custom In a short time a day was observed for the same purpose in all the Southern States not of Uniform date but selected with reference chiefly to the period at which flowers were in sea son In course of time the cus tom was adopted in several of the Northern States but it was not until May 3 1886 that Gen John A Logan then Comman der of the Grand Army of the Republic issued an order fixing May 30 of that year for the G A Rs service in decorating the graves of its brethren It is thought that this day was selec ted chiefly because it was the date of the discharge of the last volunteer of the war As time passes and the ranks of the war survivors become thin ner and thinner there is a closer approach to a unification on the day as one for common obser vance by the remnants of the two once contending armies The near approach of it is seen from year to year in instances in which there is joint participa tion in some function as the dedication of a monument by one or the other army association Such affiliation to be valued must come only as the outgrowth of a natural and unanimous ac cord It should not pe attemt ed as the result of a proposition of a mere majority of a camp or other larger army organization Just as each survivor of the war can feel pride in the manhood of his opponents in the conflict which impelled them to stake their lives in support of their convictions so can the survivors with equal honor and consistency unite in honoring on Decoration day the memory of those who died on the battie field irrespective of the banner under which they fought The measure of af fection will of course be for those of the same cause but re spect for an honorable adversary is one of the highest types of chivalryToday there will be two memorable ceremonials one in Rich mond and the other in Indianapolis The former will consist in the dedication of a monument to Gen J E B Stuart the great Virginia cavalry leader who fell at Yellow Tavern near Rich mond May 11 1864 during Sher idans raid in the rear oiLee then engaged in the battle of S APi i r Will give you comfort on a sweltering day When hot and weary it imparts vigor and

chivalry The latter will be the dedication of a monument to Gen H W Lawton a gallant Federal officer in the Civil War who was killed at San Mateo in the Phil ippines December 19 1899 Here are types of men whose memory all can unite in honoring What Confederate soldier would withhold his meed of praise from the gallant Lawton an honorable opponent in the Civil War who sealed his devotion to his coun try with his blood on a foreign shore And where is the hon orable Federal loyalist who would detract from the memory of Stu art who had he survived the war in which he fell would have re sponded to the call of his coun try in 1898 with the same ardor as Joe Wheeler and Fitzhugh Lee The day with its honorable history reminds us that the war with the bitter strife which fol lowed it a thing of the far dis tant past and that we are again one people with bonds all the stronger for the opportunity the people of the two sectons had of becoming better acquainted with each other Courier Journal THE
