disaster in the mines of this country duriiig the past three weeks Over 500 men have perished in the recess r es of the earth as the result of explosions in thre different coal mines Can you think of what suffering that means 1 Fie hun dred men represent probably at s least 2000 dependent upon them f who are thus suddenly robbed of their bread winners and whose homes are darkened with the terrible shadow of tragically s dI den deathYLife is cheap probablyi true there willalw belwhoIIyconceivable that in this Twenti eth century of invention and dis covery it is necessary to supply the nation with coal at such tre mendous cost We are forced to the belief that many such disas ters might propermprecautions were taken and all mines were properl equipped with the best safety appliances Unhappily while this is a cen tury of invention and discovery it is also a century of indifference to human life in the pursuit of the dollar Life is cheap It will be easy to find 500 more men to take the place of those who died at Monongah a weekago and Monday at Yolande near f J Birmingham Ala It is cheap er to hire new men than to in stall safety appliances and take the necessary care to prevent accidents The Government ought to in tefer- z you say The Government does interfere Itrequires certain things tobe done and it appoints inspectors and officials to see that they are done but the field to be covered is wide and there are many ways of escaping from strict obedience to the law for the man who wants IJI to Not untilthe mine operators- are made to feel their personal responsibility for the safety of the men whom they employ will it be possible to secure a full measure of protection That realization can only come in one or two ways Either by a sud den development the altruistic spirit to a degree not usually found in mine operators or by a campaign of prosecution on the part of the law against allmen on whose property accidents hap pen that can in any way be as cribed to negligence The latterr will probably Prove to be the quicker and more effective under present circumstances Louisville Herald In the senate among bills intro duced included one by Mr Mc Laurin to

does is evidenced by the interest he is taking inthe appoint j ment of a Successor to Judge Dearing as Collector of Customs and Surveyor of the Port of Louisville He has made it known that the man to be chosen must be a Taft man that they who are to do the choosing must be the Republican Congressmen from Kentucky and that the di rectorgeneral of the whole af fair by reason of authority delegated to him from the President himself is to be our own over lord William Marshall Bullitt Dr James and the other mem bers of the Congressional quartet are rathe old hands at the game of politics They are of the breed of Republicans which finds pleasure in boasting of its long pedigree and faithful service They are after all but human And so it may come hard for them at first to take lessons in dictation for this new convert to Republicanism who after a few months of valorous and spectac ular service has been intrusted with the keeping ofall that makes certain Kentuckians and Republicans the piecounter If they are wise however they will submit in silence as have Mayor Grinstead and the other oldliners having their habitat in Louisville William Marshall Bulitt is young but the city of Louisville has never known sterner or more rigorous government than that which he is now dis pensing through such instruments as James F Grinstead With the solitary exception of Jack Richardson he has silenced allmurmurers among the politi cians of his newly adopted faith and as for the common or gar den variety of citizens they would gladly eat out of his hand t were itnot for the fact that r every finger on each hand is in serted deep in one or more pies i lof alleged Republican making James Bennett Langley and Edwards are old dogs to learn new tricks but they sure have a good teacher Louisville Times X REPUBLICAN GENEROSITY We see a great deal in Repub lican papers about the Republi scan members of the Legislature voting for any good Democrat to defeat Beckham for United Senater Democrats ought not to be taken in with this sort of soft sorder There is nothing in it it is being done to get in the good graces of the Democrats who do not admire Beckham and to use them to pull the nuts out of the fire for Republicans Right now the Republicans are thoro Ughly organized andwill strain every effort to elect W 0 Bradley United States Senator When did the Republicans ever vote for builtlway en the stump that he had voted in thirythree elections and ev- a ory time he had voted for Repub t jrGtiLr For WOnianS1 EyeJa licans We do not blame them we only blame Democrats for not following their example in this respect Be ware of the Greeks through bearing gifts This professed love for Demo crats just now is simply to accomplish their own purposes We have only to look back at the Senotorial fight of 1895 to see about them electinga Democratic United States Senator In that notable campaign any day after the balloting begun they could have joined the bolting Dem ocrats and elected John G Carlisle to the United States Senate He was the greatest man in the South he was In accord with the Republicans then on the vital issue the money question but they did not elect himneither did any considerable number of them ever vote for him They will not vote for a Democrat this winter They hope to elect W Oi Bradley and it is time the Democrats were cutting their wisdom teethE Town News EXIT DE ARMOND If the voluntary testimony of Mr Carlin the new Democratic member of the House from the Eighth Virginia district who overheard the close of the conversation between Mr Williams and Mr De Armond to be believed the fight which followed was wholly of De Armonds making There is apparently no possible reason why Mr Carlin should ei ther have misunderstood or misquoted the gentleman from Mis sousi who practically struck the first blow when he called Mr Williams a liar To follow ujT this declaration with the still more emphatic one You are a damned liar and that after Mr Williams declined to believe that deliberate insult was intended was equivalent to orcinga fight then and tlereon any man of courage and a sense of personal honor And Mr Williams has never been accused of being lacking in either quality It is unfortunate for Mr De Armond that his known personal dislike for Mr Williams is open to no other explanation than dis appointment due to the fact that the minority has chosen the Mss sissippian as the recipient of its highest honors which the Mis sourian desired for himself Mr De Armond has cut a poor figure in his effort to displace Mr Williams from the Democratic lead ership and if Mr Carlin speaks by the book he has effectually disposed of any chance he may have had to succeed Mr Williams when he becomes Senator Lou iMe times if i

the part of all who are eager to see justice vindicated in the matter of the Hopkinsville raid Troubles of the kind are always better dealt with promptly The longer the law delays in taking action the more deeply rooted becomes the bitterness en gendered and the more difficult the task of bringing home the crime to the guilty The law must not act hastily and without due consideration but wrong doers should be punished with all sPied tjiat is conformable with decency and more especially when the wrong has been against a whole community and marked by intelligent and delib erate disregard for law We have faith in the wholesome effect Ota few adequate sentences passed upon the ring leaders in the recent outbreak sentences that will remind those inclined to disorder that author ity still exists in Kentucky and that the courts are still effective in accomplishing the ends of JusticetThere will be obstacles in the way of prosecution Jn Christian county T he Commonwealth will have to fight an undercur rent of sentiment that has been encouraged by previous neglect on the part of the authorities but it is time Kentucky gave the country a demonstration such as that we had from Idaho in the Haywood trialaa demonstration of the fact that a fair hearing can be given and a fair verdict returned in any county in the State Louisville Herald ItDoes The Business Mr E E Chamberlain of

without leaving a scar behind 25c at T E Paulls drug store STERILIZATION 1 That we must prevent criminals from breeding children of criminal proclivities was argued at a meeting of the Physicians Club and the Law Club last Fri day by wellknown physician Dr William T Belfied says the Chicago Evening Post This idea should commend its self t practical reformers It is the conclusion to which ever profound student f crime comes soon or late It does not mean indiscriminate sterilization of suspects but a treatment of recognized incorrigible subjects The practice could be extended to the insane and jepilepietg the public benefitI This measure is sunder experiment in Indiana where over 300 inmates of the Reformatory have allowed themselves 1 to be sterilized It is a drastic ineasure but the only certain prevention of drastic evil It must not however be implicated with quite another matter br saying pat 2I ZfiUJf r j j i rJdoctors find the cure for crime in race suicide This is no more race suicide than the hanging of a criminal is race suicidewThe Times believes with Dr Belfielda study of the history of criminals being all that is necessary to establish satisfactory proof that the theory is based on experience earned through the heavy price exacted of socie ty by the offspring of criminal parents unto the third and fourth generation It is cause for regref however f that this question should be receiving practically the whole share of its consideration in the North The most effective cure for the crime of rape that the South could inaugurate would be the sterilization and branding of the rapist The efort produced on his race would be immediate and incalculable and tin saving to the white race of the degrada tion attendant upon lynching would be escaped Its a pity that the Dr Bel fields should be chiefly confined to Chicago and Indiana The South has great need of them Louisville Times HANDY WITH NEEDLE- d The Washington Post says Those who have seen fighting Bpb
