the subjects ina manner that pleases those who hear him and enlightens the members of the jury His instructions are clar they are logical His conclusions are strongly drawn and are pre sented in that emphatic way that commands strict attention He never minces words he seldom talks atlength but he covers every subject thoroughly Judge Thurman possesses that happy faculty which enables one to say much in a few words It was our pleasure to hear him instruct the grand jury on last Monday and while we had heard him before we candidly say that we have never heard him nor any otherjudgeSdeliver stronger instructions to a jury There it not another Circuit Judge in Kentucky who dispatches business as rapidly and in such a satisfactory man ner as Judge Thurman His decisions are seldom criticised and it doesnt of ten happen that the Court of Appeals reverses him I cant recall but one criminal case tried before Judge Thur man that was ever reversed said an attorney to the editor offThe Sun a few days ago Judge Thurman is a thorough student of the law continued this attorney He is levelheaded and is as free of bias as any Judge I have ever knownfThe people of this judicial district are to be congratulated They have as their judge a man who has always en deavored and who will always endeavor to hew to the line in matters legala judge who always seeslto it that justice is meted out to the rich andj the poor alike Knowing Judge Thurman na ture as we do we are convinced that he would give his bitterest enemy as fair a trial as he would his best friend There is no room in his heart for malice no place in his brain for the concep tion ofa detestable scheme He is broadminded possessing an even temper and a disposition that castsofF arrows and slings as the Gibralters castoff the drops of an Aprilshower It matters not how welltrained a man may be in the technicalities1of law nor now scholarly he may be nor how gen teel if he lacks those elements of justice that give us tranquil hearts and clear heads relieving us of the trident with which we pierce the bosom ofl the God or Wraththat Monster that fires our brains with hatred andjtaints our souls with malicehe is more unfit for Judge of a Court of Justicejthanithe broad minded farmer who knows naught of law except thatwhichhe Ihas learned through the teachings of common sense A man whose heac maybe turned

occupies that position that enables him to destroy character by sendingjto prison the innocent to wreck fortunes byrendering unjust de cisions and to sow broadcast the seeds of anarchy and discontent A presiding judge is a monarch If he is honest capable and broadminded his ermine will never bestained and he is a bless ing to his districtfand to his State If he is that character ofjman whose passions are easily aroused he is dangerous exceedingly dangerous Americas trouble today is an afflic tion of incompetent corruptible and vain judgescharacters as wishywashy as the sands of the tides Judge Thurman possesses every qual ification of an excellent Judge He is not easily ruffled his prejudice can not be appealed to he is competent His enemy and his friend are alike to him when they are

fc t 2 THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS- ih J i j t STANLEY AND DALZELL t By Savoyard Some three or four weeks ago the agricultural appropriation bill was un der consideration in committee of the whole in the house of representatives and on March 25 Mr Stanley of Ken tucky got the floor and proceeded to reply to a very able speech by Mr Dal tell some time earlier in which the accomplished statesman from Pennsylvania undertook to contrast Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson much to the disparagement of the latter and much to the credit of the former Mr Dalzell got his history of the New England schoolthe Harvard set Henry Adams Henry Cabot Lodge Theodore Roosevelt and BO on not to forget William E Curtis and Edward- S Ems and it made the sedate think er from Pittsburg ordinarily so wary and so accurate a very credulous per son We see the somewhat similar effect when the brilliant mind of Ger trude Atherton contemplates Hamilton and Jefferson through the same his toric specs Owsley Stanleys reply to Dalzell was crushing and conclusive He painted the two men Hamilton and Jefferson precisely as they were and placed them precisely where authentic history will put them the Virginian the wisest of political philosophers the West Indian the most brilliant of political adventurers Many of Stan leys political friends tried to dissuade him from the encounter Thdy did not know much about Hamilton and Jef ferson but they knew a deal of John Dalzell whose conclusions they had never embraced but whose statements of facts they had never challenged Stanley did not dare to enter the lists without being armed capapie and he spent a week of almost cease less investigation night and day He searched fifty volumes and drew from manuscripts In the national library and the state department When he began the Democrats were apprehen sive and the Republicans confident A few minutes the Democrats were san guine and the Republicans confused Both were astonished Never before In more than 100 years of history making had the American congress sene the two great fathers of American politics as they were and as they will be estimated by the future Gibbon orHumeAlexander Hamilton was born a British subject in the Insignificant island of Nevis in the West Indies His father was a Scotchman and his mother a French woman In his earli est youth he gave earnest of the splendid genius of which nature had endowed him Ere he was twenty he was the first political controversialist In the colony of New York whether with tongue or pen His motto might have been Why then the worlds mine oyster Which I with mind will open As a political writer he was greater than Paine and little Inferior to Burke As an orator he was perhaps second to Henry only of the Revolu tionary generation Had he gone to London he would have been capable- of filling a bigger place in English an nals than the younger Pitt Had he gone to France and escaped the Terror he might have been second to Napole on Bonaparte alone an honest Talley rand a more fortunate Massena Instead Hamilton came to America and assumed the role of Hampden He opposed Lord North not for the tax he levied so much as the principle it Involved It was a little bit of a tax a great piece of folly on the part of the ministry though not oppressive but if allowed to be a precedent it was in the power of the crown to Hamiltoniarmy sec retary of the commanderinchief and In the field he was as daring as he was able in the forum That archflatterer and matchless scoundrel Talleyrand declared that Hamilton was greater than Napoleon or Fox which is all bosh but Hamiltons eulogists are ab surd enough to take what the unscru pulous French miscreant said for his real opinion Well might the shade of Hamilton pray to be delivered from American history as she is writ Hamilton is actually held up as the father of the constitution when the one thing for which he had more con tempt than for that instrument was the Articles of Confederation which it supplanted As for patriotismthe real stuff not the brand described by Walpole Hamilton had none and it was impossible for him to have any having expatriated himself at the age of sixteen years The patriotism that springs from the heart and fills the soul is not a plant that can be carried from clime to clime The patriot is made of the boy that plays around the spring gambols in the orchard reclines in the shade of trees in happy boyhood It is catching in the schoolroom as it is imparted from ur chin to urchin and it is all over and f around the playground Washington and Henry Adams and Putnam Rut l ledge and Marion were patriots So were old George Clinton and Philip i vSchuyler These were v v Native and to the manor born rt But Hamilton the adventurer

M J r fO jf h 1 chatIlengethat barbarous code he who was charg With an infamous Offense could not clear his skirts by proving its falsity To prove the charge false and to fail to resent it was to aggravate the im putation of cowardice in that day more odious than vice or crime The same perverted public opinion which necessitated the acceptance forced the sending of a challenge Could a retort be more conclusive If Hamilton was a martyr of the barbarous code when he accepted it nec essarily follows that Burr was also a martyr when it required him to send the challenge Those fond of the brilliant the or nate the exuberant the splendid can find it in these passages with which Stanley closed his speech For centuries neither the telescope of the astronomer nor the researches of science could solve the mystery of that misty light that glimmering gos samer encircling the brow of night at last the spectrum revealed in this nebula unborn worlds held in a shim mering gauze revolving masses of in candescent gas cooling through the passing cycles of time growing denser without shrinking within forming smoky concentric circles a whirling luminous fog congealing into molten rings drawn by their own gravity into rude globes and these spinning spheres shaped by the plastic hand of Divinity like clay upon a potters wheel into planets and their satel lites new solar systems swinging for the first time into their orbits in the trackless fathomless depths above Thus God peoples the heavens with radiant worlds- I have fancied that those daring bands of exiles forgotten by one world and lost in the dark wilds of another living and dying in ignorance of the mighty destiny of their childrens children conscious only that they were freeI have fancied that He with whom a thousand years are as a day or a watch in the night when it is passed saw an unborn and puissant nation through all the mists of mis ery persecution and death through which succeeding generations passed first to independence then to the mas tery of the land and sea In the vast womb of the wilderness the colonies took form though vary ing in their orbits and splendor but they differed only as one star differs from another star in glory In the hour of destiny each found its own place about the great central power to which like the planets they were eternally bound yet forever separate The fathers I declare to you heard the voice of God when they covered this continent with states even as the heavens are bespangled with stars The same peril awaits the star and the state The state dissevered from her sisters is lost even as a planet wrenched from its moorings comet like becomes the wandering vagrant of the skies Either drawn by the compelling gravity of a central force into its mighty vortex is annihilated by the power which should have been the source of light and UfeIFrom the chaos wreck of centralization may he who ordained long preserve this constellation Let of statesIturb or destroy their exquisite bal indissolU1IFor years and years the dogmatism of Hamiltons eulogists has dominated American public thought I only wish that Owsley Stanley would take to elaborate this splendid timeI his and offer it to some leading zine It would carry confusion into every Hamilton camp and shake the walls of Harvard College themselves POINTS IN FARM PRACTICE r In all

lastfie years Any one that has not given the subject very much thought does not realize the part it plays in our jAm rican industriesJ IIiegg farming as a very remuera tive business In the first place it does not require a great deal of capital to commence with I would advise any one thinking of going into poultry raising un less they have some experience to begin at the bottom and buildup Some of the best poultryi men we have in the gan with a couple of settings of eggs By so doing they did not risk much and gained experience as they went One should start with one and not over alsoI breeds as you can give them better attention for it is a fact indeed if you do not give your poultry good care you will be a failure as a fancier Study them read get all the information you can about the breeds in general You will nevI er know too much you must not depend on what You see or what some one else tells you for your local conditions may be quite different from those elsewhere And you should never be afraid of a little exIt pens if you are you cannot ex pect to keep up as a firstclass fancier As nothing succeeds like success one has to be on the lookout all the time and try to keep what the people want most As the other breeds drop out and the newer take their places it stands one in hand to keep his eyes upen and always stay abreast of the timestLike every other business to make a success you must go into it with your whole soul and body If you sell eggs for hatching do not misrepresent A satisfied customer is worth more to you thanmany times the value of your eggs Your motto should be the Golden Rule and I will venture to say if you stick to it success wil surely crown your efforts Get a good popular breed there are many to select from HOGWALLOW t X Kentuckian Since Raz

Farmers must take to breeding good horses Such are not only needed on the farms but it is as easy to raise a good horse which will sell at a long price as it is to raise a scrub for which there is t no market The demand for heavy horses was never better than at present and it is likely to increase rather than decrease The population is centralising in large cities These naturally become the great distributing centers and with increase in distribution comes increase in the de mand for heavy dray horses so extensively used in such distri bution This means therefore that the breeding of such horses ongthe part of those who take it up whotengage in it need not be harassed by fear that they are putting their money into a plant that will soon become useless because of depreciation the price of horses rearingihorses for dray use lies in the fact that they are too lacking in weight Any number of horses can be bred which weigh between 1300 and 1400 pounds and yet it is the latter class that is most wantedFarmers Advocate Congressman W P Kimball introduced a bill in the House of e Representatives at Washington to appropriate 25000 for the erection of a monument In Lex ingto to the memory
