If Morrow had carried Louisville by 2,000 votes he would have been elected by 5,500 votes. These comparisons are being made in and around every courthouse in Kentucky.

Prohibition is a shadow, or else a ghost, that still haunts Democratic councils. It is "settled," they say; that is, all parties and factions favor the submission of a constitutional amendment; nevertheless there is some uneasiness among the veterans of the Prohibition cause, and they are looking with some concern to the organization of the next Legislature. Claud Thomas is the favorite for Speaker, not only because he is in accord with those who favor the submission of the amendment but because of his character, his experience, and because of the enemies he has made by his public services, his fearlessness and his independence. His nomination is said to be secure, but his opponents are active, and have named as their leader a Prohibitionist, but of the Stanley order. The Democrats of Kentucky want a Legislature that is not organized and run by the influence of the different executive departments; by the Governor, the Prison Board and other appointees of the Governor. The Legislature of 1916 was a Governor's Legislature, and one is enough for a generation. might come to him by right of heritage. He wanted to 'blaze a new path. So he started by joining the police force. After serving a short time at the Third precinct station he was transferred to No. 1. Reserve policemen at the First precinct station told a reporter the story of John Preston Breckinridge, who left his home to swing a billy on a street corner. The blue blooded wearer of the blue coat and gilded buttons never spoke of himself to his associates, it was said. "He was quiet and one of th "hest men we had on the force," said one of his f "Once when someone asked him something about himself he casually mentioned the fact that he was the son of Gen. Breckinridge and then went on to his work. We do not know why, such a man as he was should enter the police force, but we were too glad to get him to ask any personal question." While the huge policeman swung his club at Eleventh and G streets his brother sat in an easy chair before a polished desk as Assistant Secretary of war.

The midnight sun had set, but In a crotch between two snow peaks it had kindled a vast caldron from which rose a mist of jewels, garnet and turquoise, topaz and amethyst and opal, all swfmmlng in a sea of molten gold. The glow of it still clung to the face of the broad Yukon, as a flush does to the soft, wrinkled cheek of a girl just roused from deep sleep. Except for a faint murklness in the air It was still day. There was light enough for the four men playing pinochle on the upper deck, though the women of their party, gossiping in chairs grouped near at hand, had at last put aside their embroidery. The girl who sat by herself at a little distance held a magazine still open in her lap. Gordon Elliot had taken the boat at Pierre's Portage, fifty miles farther down the river. He had come direct from the creeks, and his impressions of the motley pioneer life at the. gold diggings were so vivid that he had found an isolated corner of the deck where he could scribble them in a notebook while still fresh. But he had not been too busy to see! that the girl in the wicker chair was as much of an outsider as he was. Plainly this was her first trip in. Gordon was a stranger in the Yukon country, one not likely to be overwelcome when it became known what his mission was. Prom where he was leaning against the deckhouse Elliot could see only a fine, chiseled profile shading into a j mass of crisp, black hair, but some quality in the detachment of her per- - , sonallty stimulated gently his imaglna- - j tion. He wondered who she could be. A short, thickset man who had ridden j aown on tne stage witn .Elliot to Pierre's Portage drifted along the deck toward him. He wore the careless garb of a mining man in a country which looks first to comfort "Bound for Kusiak?" he asked, by j' way of opening conversation. "Yes," answered Gordon, The miner nodded toward the group under the awning. "That bunch lives at Kusiak. They've got on at different places the last two or three days except Selfridge and his wife; they've been out Guess you can tell that from hearing her talk the little woman in i red with the snappy black eyes. She's splllin' over with talk about the styles in New York and the cabarets and the new shews. That little fellow In the checked suit is Selfridge. He Is Colby Macdonald's man Friday." Elliot took In with a quickened in- -' terest the group bound for Kusiak. He had noticed that they monopolized as a matter of course the best places on the deck and in the dining room. They were civil enough to outsiders, but their manner had the unconscious selfishness that often regulates social ac tivities. It excluded from their gay ety everybody that did not belone to the proper set. "That sort of thing gets my goat," the miner went on sourly. "Those women over there have elected themselves Society with a capital S. They put on all the airs the Four Hundred do in New York. And who are they anyhow? wives to a bunch of grafting politicians mostly." "That's the way of the world, Isn't It? Our civilization is built on the group system," suggested Elliot. "Maybe so," grumbled the miner. "But I hate to see Alaska come to it Me, I saw this country first In ninety-seve- n packed an outfit in over the pass. Every man stood on his own hind legs then. He got there If he was strong mebbe; he bogged down on the trail good and plenty if he was weak. We didn't have any of the artificial stuff then. A man had to have the guts to stand the gaff!" "I suppose it was a wild country; Mr. Strong." The little miner's eyes gleamed. "Best country in the world. We didn't stand for anything that wasn't on the level. It was a poor man's country wages fifteen dollars a dayand plenty of work. Everybody had a - chance. Anybody could stake a claim and gamble on .his luck- - Now the big cor poratJons have slipped in and grabbed the best It ain't a prospector's piopo eltlon any more.

Parasites, that's what they are. , They're living off that bunch of roughnecks down there and folks like 'em." With a wave of his hand Strong pointed to a group of miners who had boarded the boat with them at Pierre's Portage. There were about a dc.en of tlS J&SBt flr tne most Part kusfcyj ! ' I heavy-se- t foreigners. Elliot gathered from their talk that they had lost' their jobs because they had tried to organize an incipient strike In the Frozen Gulch district. "Roughnecks and booze fighters that's all tljey are. But they earn their way. Not that I blame Macdon-al- d for firing them, mind you," continued the miner. "His superintendent up there was too soft. These here Swedes got gay. Mac hit the traif for Frozen Gulch. He hammered his big fist into the bread basket of the ringleader and said, 'Git!' That ' fellow's running yet, I'll bet Then Mac called the men together and read the riot act to them. He fired this bunch on the boat and was out of the camp before you could bat an eye. It was the cleanest hurry-u- p job I ever did see." "From what I've heard about him, he must be a remarkable man." "He's the biggest man in Alaska, bar none." This was a subject that interested Gordon Elliot very much. Colby and his activities had brought him to the country. "Do jou mean personally or because he represents the big corporations?" 'Both. His word comes pretty near being law up here, not only because he stands for the Consolidated, but because he's one man from the ground up." "Do you mean that he's square honest?" "You've said two things, my friend," answered Strong dryly. "He's square. if iie tells you anything, don'- worry because he ain't put down his John nancock before a notary. Don't waste any time looking for fat or yellow streaks in Mac. They ain't there. Nobody ever heard him squeal yet and hnt.'s mor nnhodi' ever will" No wonder men like him." No! "But when you say honest Not the Avay you define honesty down In the States. He's a grabber, Mac is." "What does he look like?" Strong hesi"Oh, I don't know." tated, while he searched for words to show the picture in his mind. "Big as a house steps out like a buck in the eyes that bore right spring blue-gra- y through you."

He leaned forward slightly, his weight resting on the balls of his feet, alert to the. finger tips. "Next," he taunted. Then the mate got busy. He hustled his stevedores forward In front of the miners and shook his fist In their faces as he stormed up and down. If they wanted trouble, by Jove! it was waiting for 'em, he swore in apoplectic fury. The Hannah was a river boat and not a dive of wharf rats ! The man with the suitcase did not wait to hear out his tirade. He followed the purser to his stateroom, dropped his baggage beside the berth, and joined the Kusiak group on the upper deck. They greeted him eagerly, a little effusively, as if they were anxious to prove themselves on good terms with him.

"They say he's going to marry Mrs. Mallory. She's the one with the red hair." It struck young Elliot that the miner was dismissing Mrs. Mallory in too cavalier a fashion. She was the sort of woman at whom men look twice, and then continue to look while she appears magnificently unaware of it. Her hair was not red, but of a lustrous amazingly abundant, and bronze, dressed In waves with the careful skill Slightest shades 6f of a coiffeur. meaning she could convey with- a lift of the eyebrow or an intonation of the musical voice. If she was already fencing with the encroaching years there was little evidence of it In her opulent good looks. e, - "What was the matter?" asked Selfridge. "How did the trouble start?" The big man shrugged his shoulders. "It didn't start Some of the outfit thought they were looking for a row,, but they balked on the job when got his." Gordon, as he watched from a little distance, corrected earlier impressions. This man had passed the thirties. He had the thick neck and solid trunk of middle life, but he carried himself so superbly that his whole bearing denied that years could touch his splendid physique. Strong had stepped to the wharf to talk with an old acquaintance, but when the boat threw out a warning signal he mado a hurried goodby and came on board. He rejoined Elliot "Well, what d'you think of him? Was I right?" The young man had already guessed who this Imperious stranger was. "I never saw anybody get away with a hard job as easily as he did that one. You could see with half an eye that those fellows meant fight They were all primed for it and he bluffed them Tre-lawn- judged that SclMjlg'o Was makbfhirBp. Ones he caught a fragment of their talk, enough to confirm this impression. "Did Winton tell you that himself ?" demanded the Scotsman. The answer of his employee came In a murmur so .low that the words were lost But the name used told Gordon a good deal. The commissioner of the general land office at Washington signed his letters Harold B. Winton. Strong tossed the stub of his cigarette overboard and nodded good night A glance at his watch told Elliot that it was past two o'clock. He rose, stretched and sauntered back to his stateroom. The young man had just taken off his coat when there came the hurried rush of trampling feet upon the hurricane deck above. Almost Instantly a cry of alarm. He could hear the shuffling of footsteps and the sound of heavy bodies moving. Someone lifted a frightened shout. "Help! Help!" The call had come, he thought, from Selfridge. Gordon Hung open the door of his room, raced along the deck and took the stairs three at a time. A huddle of men swayed and shifted heavily in front of him. Even as he ran toward the mass; Elliot noticed that the only sounds were grunts, stertorous breathings, and the scraping of feet The attackers wanted no publicity. The attacked was too busy to waste breath in futile cries. He was fighting for his life. Two men, separated from the crowd, lay on the deck farther aft. One was on top of the other, his fingers clutching the gullet of his helpless opponent. The agony of the man underneath found expression only in the drumming heels that beat a tattoo on the floor. The spasmodic feet were shod in Oxford tans of an cut. No doubt the owner of the smart footwear had been pulled dtfttn as he was escaping to shout the alarm. The runner hurdled the two in his stride and plunged straight at the struggling tangle. Ho caught one man by the shoulders from behind and flung him back. He struck hard, smashing blows as he fought his way to 'n heart of the melee. Heavy-flste.miners with corded muscles landed upon his face and head and neck. He did not care a straw for the odds. (The sudden attack of Elliot had opened the pack. The man battling against a doz'en was Colby Macdonald. The very number of his foes had saved him so far from being rushed overboard or trampled down. His coat and shirt were in rags. He was bruised and battered and bleeding from the chest up. But he was still slugging hard. They had him pressed to the rail. A huge miner, head down, had his arms around the waist of the Scotsman and was trying to throw him overboard. Macdonald lashed out and landed flush upon the cheek of n man attempting to brain him with a billet of wood. He hammered home a short-arjolt against the ear of the giant who was giving him the bear grip. The big miner grunted, but hung on like a footbali tackier. With a jerk he raised Macdonald from the floor ing' a fe -- he-hear- d ultra-fashionab- le unUi that moment submerged. "Shows ho absent-minde- d a man gets. 1 was thinking about how he tried to drown me, I expect" They dragged the miner aboard. "Go ahead. Til swim down," Mas donald ordered. "Better come aboard,7" advised the mate. "No. I'm all right" The Scotsman pushed himself back from the boat and fell into an easy stroke. Nevertheless, there was power in it, for he reached the Hannah before the rescued miner had been helped to the deck. A dozen passengers, crowded on the lower deck, pushed forward eagerly to see. Among them was Selfridge, his shirt and collar torn loose at the neck and his immaculate checked suit dusty and disheveled. He was wearing a pair of up to date Oxford pumps. Macdonald shook himself like a Newfoundland dog. He looked around with sardonic amusement, a grin on his swollen and disfigured face. "Quite a pleasant welcome home," he said ironically, his cold eyes fixed on a face that looked as If It might have been kicked by a healthy mule. "Eh, Trelawney?" The Cornlshman glared at him, and turned away with a low, savage oath. "Are you hurt, Mr. Macdonald?" asked the captain. "Hurt! Not at all, captain. I cut myself while I was shaving this morn-- : ing just a scratch," was the ironic answer. "There's been some dirty work going on. I'll see the men are punished, sir." "Forget it, captain. Til attend to that little matter." His Jaunty, almost e insolent glance made the again. "Sorry you were too late for the party, gentlemen most of you. I see three or four of you who were among those present' It was a strictly exclusive affair. And now, If yor don't mind, I'll say good night" He turned on his heel, went up the stairway to the deck above and disappeared into his stateroom. half-circl- y fflinmmmmmmnTOjmnm N. M.

We found that in the war between Germany and France In 1870-7Germany lost In killed and wounded 28,000 soldiers while France lost about six times CO- as many, and besides that, she lost jlncornoratcd every battle. We asked Professor 16 Caat fiatkei street Between first and Crock why this was. He said that the German army was highly trhined and Louisville, Ky. ably commanded, while the French soldiers were poorly trained; and that their war department was honeycombed with jealousy and politics; that the officers were not much good, and that's why France lost the war and so many men. Wliat do you think GREENSBURG, KENTUCKY, about It, Uncle Dan?" "Well," said Uncle Dan, "Professor Slocum is right. By Inefficiency France lost that war, together with two of her best pr0vinces--.4lsa- .ee and and had to pay a bijllon dollars Indemnity money, ljnmce today learned her lesson by that sad experience, so she put inunlversal military training, and as aapult, h.er soldiers now know how tonight and how to protect themselves. ?hey are l.QSlng loss men In the war than the desmans. war France also put politics put of department, so that expert authority, instead of bureaucratic stupidity,-nodirects the army.

To do so Is simply murder, hence the frantic effort that Is now being made to give her soldiers some training before they are sent to the front. If we are to win this war, It will take trained men to do It, and It will take trained men to win any other war that may come npon us In tho future. If we must fight, let us fight to win and not Ve to lose." "That's the stuff," said Blllle. Continuing, Uncle Dan said: "Our andgovernment has expended about to put up cantonments and training stations In order to train the men called by the selective draft. When these men are trained the training stations should be immediately ' -; filled with younger men; say those In their nineteenth year, to receive $X months of intensive military training along the lines of the Chamberlain bill.

The industrial training given there is probably the best to be found. The schools as a .whole, however, in my opinion, appeal to the head only, and never to the heart. The aim and trend is to make the individual blindly submissive to the Prussian plan of world dominion; they teach that it is the destiny of Germany to rule the world, and that to the glory and advance of Germany, In this plan, all things must give way; that, the kaiser as head of the state, can do no wrong if he carries forward . the plan of world control. Some of the greatest teachers and preachers even defend and justify her heartless crushing of Belgians and the many other atrocious crimes she has committed In this war. Thank God, our American education' reaches both the head and the heart It is an education with a soul, and we must maintain the high Ideals we have fixed.

Carl, yon know," continued BUUe, lias a very smart father who keeps him posted- on- the German arguments. Carl said our government was only an experiment anyway; that It would not last twenty years, and that It might burst up any old time. Jimmie asked him if Germany was so mighty good, why they did not go back there to live." "Our government will go on forever, won't it, Uncle Dan?" "Now," said Uncle Dan, "you are raising a big question, and one that has troubled me for years. Our government is still In the experimental stage; in fact, it Is the greatest experiment ever undertaken, and If popular government is to be successful, a few things must be done, otherwise, to paraphrase the great Lincoln, the government of the people, by the people and for the people, will perish. It is my firm conviction," said Uncle Dan, In a very Impressive manner, "that If our country is to go on, as we, hope and pray, we must very quickly do at least three things,- - and I will name them in the order of importance, as it appears to me: "First, adopt compulsory universal military training of all young men physically fit before they reach the age of twenty years. "Next, require that every foreigner who comes here to live must; within a reasonable time, say a year, declare Jfis Intention of becoming an American citizen nnd take the necessary stops ,to do so, thereby, from that moment, assuming all the obligations of citizenship of our country, and that means he must defend our fla upon equal terms withour native"born, andif he Is not willing to do this, he should 60 sent back from whence he came."
