possession of the knife when the brave officer grabbed Burress by the coat tail and pulled him and Williams out into the yard Williams fell to the ground face downward and Bur ress in a kind of a crouching position arrose and said he would fix the officer but officer Hord was too quick for him and pasted him a well deserved blow across the left eye which laid him out for several minutes When

whom the charges of the pastfew days hav been brought It wisely and just r ly charges the jury with responsibility for a thorough investigation of the question whether the J actions ot the American Tobacc- Company in callow ay county have not been in defiance of the law There are enough laws on the statue book if applied to impose an effective check on the tobac- ctrustst oppression of the tobacco grower Because they have not been en forced Kentucky has been sub jected to the ineffective and shameful substitute of night rid ing The immediate duty before the court is to indict and convict men guilty of intimidation cruel rrty and incendiearism Coexist ent with that duty is the duty 0of effecting by means within the power of the courts relief from the intolerable conditions which i have provoked anarchy The Times has no sympathy for the anarchist caught red handed nor does it believe that justice = will be done nntil the men wh Iinprovoked anarchy are made to pay their share of the penalty s Louisville Times RIGHT THIS TIME The Presidents latest message to Congress is an appeal for an appropriation for the building of four battleships instead of two The message is characteristic in its tone and argument setting forth the beauties of peace but declaring that peace can be in sured only by constant preparedness for war- Rather hard experience has taught the lesson that it is not always safe to accept Mr Rose- svelt judgment without question ing but it would seem that if the United States is to have a navy that navy should be made fit to hold its own in a company Under the American form of government a large and effective standing army is impos sible and however good the raw material in the National Guard and the volunteers war with a first class power under the pres ent system would mean that the work of preperation for the army would have to be begun after the outbreak of hostilities leaving the brunt of things to the llavyc with a Pacific as well as an At lantic coast to defend If the navy under such conditions were not fully the equal of the navy opposed to it the result would be r disaster War is not a probability Until human nature is regenerated it will always remain a possibility y And if war comes the navy and the big fighting ships of the navy at least will constitute the one reasonable hope of successful de fence until the army can be licked into shape and a transportation system effected Louisville Times v BRYAN ON NEWSPAPERS f In discussing the value and mflueuce of newspapersand duty they owe thei public WJBryan way

speeehgiving an account of his time spent as Re resent tive of Adair and Cumberland TAcounties in the last Legislature Senator Nell also addressed the audience giving an account of MThis stewardship referring to the measures that became laws I through his leadership Hon M Rey Yarberry spoke in an advis ory capacity asking the conven tion to keep within the limits of reasonable action to not take an extreme position After the r speeches closed the committee on resolutions reported and then the battle royal began Mr Hiram J Conover read the resolutions presented by the committee r which failed to meet the apprbv al of several as it did not indorse the administration of President 0 Roosevelt Judge W W Jones i then offered the following as an amendment to the report r Resolved That we indorse f the administration of President Roosevelt as being able wise and conservative and commend its ef fects to the consideration of the J country Judge Jones made an appeal to the convention for the adoption 7 r j of the amendment giving his r doneyl Mr WA Coffeythen came to r thefrontinOne of his best efforts i to show why the amendment ishould be defeated and why thet i National Administration

Judges argument faild to change the minds of those who opposed the measure and it was defeated by an overwhelming vote only ten or fifteen standing for its adoption At this juncture Judge Jones offered a resolution instructing the delegates to vote for Wm H Taft for President and substituting the name ofF P Combest of Casey county as delegate for that of W T Davis of Bell county This was opposed by Mr J S Stapp who warmed up under his denunciation of Mr Combest A vote was taken and the resolu tion buried under a heavy major ity Judge Jones then offered a resolution changing a clause in the committees report that really censured the President and his administration This second ed by Judge Baker Like the foregoing it was put tosleep by a heavy majority The report of the committee was then voted on and went through with a whoop The resolution which failed to indorse the President was as fol- believelows First That we in the great principals of the Re publican party We are proud of its traditions and its history every page of which isa record of prosperity and of freedom We call attention to the factthat for nearly half a century the Re publican party has controlled the destinies of our nation and with the exception of a few years of Democratic rule we have pros pered until we have become the wonder of the world It instructed for Fairbanks for President Messrs W A Coffey this county and W To Davis of Bell county for delegates to the National convention from the Eleventh district The delegates to the State convention are instructed to vote for Senator W 0 Bradley Gov A E Willson Hon John W Yerkes and Mr Barney of color for delegates atlarge The Republican convention last Saturday was one of much interest bringing together a large number of the most repre sentative Republicans of the county and a good number of Democrats who desired to see the fun go on It was a sweeping victory for Fairbanks a black eye for the Pesident and a dead er for Secretary Tafts ambition When Republicans refuse to in- dorse the administration of their greatest statesman when they openly assert that their leading Candidate is not made to meet theTequirements of their party nor to administer to the necessi ties of the cQuntay i when they openly assert that hecaniotcar- ry the vote of the labor organizations or thel negroes of the coun bSnwiy should Dems oasts

publicans who read The News and who feel an interest in the proceedings can get a fair idea of what happened If Republi can doctrine and policies have brought about the present bad business conditions why should any man who thus believes want to continue Republicans in pow er The Fairbanks people who refused to indorse the adminis tration of President Roosevelt and who knows that Secretary Taft is the Presidents choice pledged to carry on the same policies certainly can not Insist on the people to support a man whose election would be detri mental to the public good Mr W A Coffey candidate to represent his party from the Eleventh district in the National Republican Convention can not yet tell whether or not he has won as there are several contested delegations One thing how ever is certain he made a game fight neither giving nor asking quarter from any one He out lined his policy in the beginning published it broadcast over the district and he and his many friends stood true to his position In the convention here last Sat urday no compromise could be made it was a straight fight and the victory won is evidence of the loyalty of his friends It is not in keeping with our faith to en dorse his position or to applaud the means by which the results were accomplished but being a friend wholely disinterested as to whom the Republicans should select as their nominee in the Chicago Convention we truly hoped that he would win in the district He is amply able to be a useful man in that capacity and never hoists the white flag when contending for what he believs to be right The resolutions for which he contended were what he believed the real true doctrines of his party and not the pandering sentiment of bow ing to the headlights of shifting policies It is very evident that Secreta ry Taft has carried Kentucky and that he will organize the State Convention The only county in the world that has refused to pin a rose on departing glory is the county of Adair No newborn
