who are on the inside of what is actually trans piring Max Levy the noted Cincin nati attorney representing a syndicate of Eastern capitalist this week sent to Mr M J Farris large sum of money to be deposited here and to be used in purchasing the rest of the rightofway and defraying the regular expenses Mr Farris says there is no doubt about the road being built and that the slight delay was caused by the mon ey scare which has now entirely disap peared from among the moneyed men of the east They are now willing to turn their coin loose and the road will be built as soon as things are gotten into proper condition President J F Allen and his private secretary are now in Danville and Chief Engineer Sullivan was a guest at the head offices yester day A number of expert engineers are working under Mr Sullivan Mr Levy telephoned Mr Farris last night that he would be in Danville within the course of a few days for the purpose of father perfecting matters relative to the building of

OPPORTUNITY FOR PRESBYTERIANS Since the Presbyterian Educational Board has decided to sell its school property and withdraw from Burkesr yule to some other point iii this section ifc appears to us as an opportune time for the Presbyterians of Columbia and vicinity to dp great Ig dfortheir f3choo1 1ere m itsarikaSchool that will be takenfropiiJBurkesf yule inadditipiiJx its preseritjfacilities tSjIi the results would be electrifying not only to the school but to Columbia as well There is not a doubt that such action would result in making the M F one of the best schools in the State and it can not be doubted that such an institution would be worth far more to Southern Kentucky and to the denomi nation than two of less force and in fluence The opportunity appear to be here the necessity is apparent The Presbyterians of this section ought to go after this with all their soul mind and strength and it can not be doubted that others will join in at the proper timer TWO CHILDREN GIVEN A

President It says so in plain terms as follows The Hon William H Taft is a Republican of unquestionable ability and a fine record of service in the discharge of public duty as he saw it at thei time Yet as a candidate for the Presidency against Mr Bryan he would be a mistakea deplorable and probably disastrouS mistake President Roosevelt by certain of his own personal policies has alienated or estranged a good thirdfcof the republican voters For three policies Mr Taft stands He has echoed and de fended them in his public utter ances down to and including the last message from the White- House Moreover on his own record Mr Taft has incurred the pro found distrust if not eiimitySpf- x another good third dtf the voters whom the Republican tiJIlust h veto win We refer to the socailed

righteousness or unrighteousness of the acts on the part of Mr Taft which pro duce these political conditions It simply presents two indigestible political facts as they are On account of these facts the InterOcean requests the readers i of this statement to cut it out and if by any chance Mr Taft should be nominated to paste it in his hat BEEGH HARGIS CASE It is the general opinion of the people in Breathitt county that Beech Hargis who killed his father will either Jbe acquit ted or get off with a very light sentence said Ed L Monroe a Cincinnati travling man who sells whisky in the Eastern part of Kentucky UI have just returned from a trip which took me to the little town of Jackson among other places added Mr Monroe 1 have been traveling through that territory for a long time andI want to say that now for the first timethereseejns tafeaspirit of rest pd peace iii Bloody Breath f 2 r f J iifl1 i 1tJi tidff r r 11 h i ttt i j c i f rf ittl It is the general opinionof the people that the death of Judge Hargis ended the fued which has claimed so many lives 01 course it is to be regret ted that Judge Hargis was killed by his own son but just the same his death has caused a cessation of the warfare which has been waged for so many years It is just the sort of feeling which will cause Beech Hargis to be let own light Another thing which will weigh with the jury will be the devotion of the moth er to the son Mrs Hargis has announced that she will spend every dollar left her by Judge Hargis to defend Beech No matter how wild the boy may have been the mother love lin gers and this will have more ef feet on the jury than money The money lust does not predom mate in the mountains as in the more crowded marts of trade The people are still promitive in their reasoning So if Mrs Harj gis is willing to condone death of her husband and defend the son the mountaineers will not vopppse her will and Beech Har gis will get off light Cincin nati 3 fe iflii C t i1i i ftJttl fJ11 7

limits make it necessary for a manufacturing or trading corporation engaged ill interstate commerce to take out a federal license before it shall be permitted to control as much as twentyfive per cent of the product in which it deals the license to protect the public from watered stock and to pro hibit the control by such corpo ration of more than fifty per cent of the total amount of any pro duct consumed in the United States and third a law co pell ing such licensed corporations to sell to all purchasers in all parts of the country on the same terms after making due allow ance for cost of transportation We welcome the belated prom ise of tariff reform now offered by a part of the republican par ty as a tardy recognition of the righteousness of the democratic position on this question but the people can not safely entrust the execution of this important work to a party which is so obligated to the highly protected interests that it postpones relief until after the election And we call atten tion to the significant fact that the promise now made by those republicans who favor tariff re vision is wholly vitiated by the use of the very qualifying words under which the present tariff niquities have grownup We favor an immediate revision of the tariff by the reduction of import duties Articles entering into competition with articles controlled by trusts should ye placed upon the free list ma terial reductions should be made n the tariff upon the necessaries of life and reductions should be mad in such other schedules as nay be necessary to restore the tariff to a revenue basis We favor an income tax as part Df our revenue system and we urge the submission of a constitutional amendment specificallyly authorizing congress to levy and collect a tax upon individual and corporate incomes to the end that wealth may bear its pro or ionate share of our burdens of the federal gsvernment We favor a national inheritance tax to reach the swollen fortunes al ready in existence but we be ieve that it is better to permanently prevent swollen for tunes by abolishing the priv Lliges and favoritism upon which tbeYarebase We assert the right of con fess to exercise complete tcbn rol over interstate commerce n4 we ass rtthe rjjglit of egcji tate to exercise ju t as complete iontrol tfvei Commerce Within its v T Sfvv i fIiJ f l i tilf Pe ii1 j S r borders We demand such ai enlargement of the powers of national and state railway commissions as may be necessary tc give full protection to persons and places from discrimination and extortion We believe that both the nation and the various states should first ascertain the present value of the railroads measured by cost of reproduction second prohibit the issue of any more watered stock or fictitious capitalization third prohibit the railroads from engaging in any business which brings them into competition with their shippers and fourth reduce transporta tion rates until they reach a point where they will yield only a reasonable return on the pres ent value of the roadssuch rea sonable return being defined as a return1 sufficient to keep the stock of the roads at par when I such roads are honestly cap italized The injury done by issues oi watered stock is more clearly seen and better understood since the shrinkage in the market value of such stock has precip itated a widespread panic

men however Mulligan is far the most widely known He was a companion in crime with the rioted convict Charles Bishop who was killed in 1900 for attempting to break out of the penitentiary but unlike Bish op did not possess as much of the desperate courage as his compan ion Mulligan and Bishop also others became involved in a quarrel with a one legged tramp at Latonia over a keg of beer and in the melee the tramp was killed Biship was chased through the city with Mulligan and he went through a street car shooting in every direction Later in the day while Bishop and Mulligan were together Bish op shot and killed a policemen and the two men were sent to the penitentiary for life for their double crime Mulligan is in ill health and it is likely that he will not live very long He is suffering

Convention this will take place At that meeting new member s of all the committees will b e elected for a period of four years and the rules made for their gov ernment will be adopted The er rors and defects in the partyr laws ought to be apparent and should be s o amended a s t a eliminate or reduce t o zl minimum every incentive or op portunity for the office holden members of our party to contro the action of party machinery In other words free the com mittee from temptation to ad wane their individual interests and place every member the reach of temptation and then we can hope to have a fair square deal and rid our party from the odium of self perpet nation and advancement in office by mere manipulation Th State Central and Executive committees exercise the coordi nate branches of party govern ment and their limitation or con stitutional powers are derived through the State Convention The Executive Committee fixes J the time and manner of making nominations while the Central Committee performs judicial functions and manages cam paignes With the entire man agement of nominations deter mining contests and directing campaigns the importance of making and keeping every mem r ber free from the allurements o personal political advancement is a clear Heretofore this has not sd been guarded and through this defect in party law the ounda tion for machine methods was laid We are not criticising the committees nor any member of said committees butit is natural to return good for good and evil for evil In other words several Members of the committees held f good
