that are making Australia and New Zealand fa mous throughout the civilized worldIThe Canadian Government isI taking cognizance of the fact that men grow old and that when they are no longer able to keep peace with the breakneck speed of our modern industrial system they ought not to be thrown upon the scrap heap like so much junk I Many reasoning fairminded men have become imbued with- r the idea that if it is right to pension veterans who unfor tunately are compelled to kills their kind and destroy wealth it is doubly right to reward those veterans who produce wealth preserve peace and steadily up build a higher civilization- r Thus our peaceloving Canadian neighbors propose to enact legislation providing pensions- e for the aged It is hoped to encourage thrift and saving- e among the working people and to insure the beneficiares a annual income after they reach the age of sixty or sixtyfive sufficient to keep them from actual want It is estimated that by the pay ment of an annual amount of 13 beginning at twenty years of age the beneficiary will be come entitled to anannuity of 12 for life when he has reached the age of sixty If the benefi ciary prefers to wait for his pension until he is sixtyfive years of age he will then be entitled to 200 per annum willebe paid into the local ppstoffice wherever they may reside These savings will then be given compound interest semiannually from the Government at the rate o 4 per cent A Government annuity will not be made in favor of any person other than the actual annuitant nor for a larger sum per annum than 400 Where a family is desirous of assuring itself more than 400 yearly there is nothing to prevent the wife taking out an account in her own name as well as the husband These Government pensions or annuities will be absolutely inalienablethat is they cannot be capitalized or sold to anyone providenmoney a family derives from them I cannot be seized for any purpose what soeverShould the annuitant be unable or unwilling to keep up his pay ments until he his reached the age of sixty he will be allowed hegrate of 3 per cent per annum Off course annuities will cease with the death of the beneficiary Louisville

They differ widely in character One is of ten a torment at home the other a blessing One is a moth con= suming every thing about her the other is a sunbeam inspiring light and gladness around her

seems to lie in the attempt to make the constitution deal with details rather than with principles The power remedy in my judgment is only to be found in an amendment of the consti tution which shall give to the general assembly power to class ify all proper subjects for tax s ation in such a manner that I No subject shall escape its proper share of the burden No subject of the same class shall be taxed more than once The tax shall in all cases be uniform to subjects of the same class and just to the subject taxed f Nearly all animals fear fire and tt will rush from it in terror To others it

their delegates to cast their votes for Hon W J Bryan Not a single opposing voice wasfin evidence The rec tifiers purifiers and conservativ izers may pretend to see f great Democratic opposition to Mr Bryan for fee nomination but they will never realize it TheV man who reads can not fail to see that Mr Bryan is the choice of 95 per cant of the Democrats in the entire country There Js not a doubt in our mind about his nomination nor a shadow of a doubt but that it is best for our party and best for the country His chances for election are fifty to one over any other Democrat that would make the race and as things now are and getting a leetle more so all the while he will win over any Re publican who may be so unfort unateas to go against him Mr Bryan is known He is not an uncertain quantity He is for the great body of people un biased by political prejudice and unhampered by corporate greed and dictation He is the man to lead the party the one to rule the country and we believe that both

session of the Kentucky Legisla ture is degenerating into a mere farce describes the situation at Frankfort correctly At first it might appear that the word interests is misguid ing As far as can be seen on the surface no business interest except the liquor interest is fig uring in the lime light at Frank fort in the successful plan to block legislation There is an other interest however at work to wit the old discredited political Machine in Louisville which with the aid of the Halde man newspapers and by the votes of seven Democratic bolt ers is doing as effective work in this line as the liquor lobby interest The two are in fact working together in such perfect harmony as to make one compact forceIThe session of the Legislature so far has been a farce Only one bill and that an
