morning session Friday was taken up principally in healing re ports of committees The committee on minimum prices submitted its report which was accepted with only a single amendment This was that

instructed toassume tho duties of both positions Warehouse Plan for 1905 Tho committee on ways and means submitted its report making recom men dations as to the method of keep ing tobacco until the desired prices be obtained Theso recommendations were that the warehouse plan or tho Dark District Tobacco Growers Pro tection association be adopted with slight modifications Committees from tthe various tobacco counties wero provided for and are given cer tarn powers to make local arrange ments To thisi was added a recom mendation that one per cent of the proceeds of the tobacco be used for running expenses onehalf to go to tho local unions the remaining one half to the national organization It was also recommended that the proceeds of factory sweeping be credited to running expenses These recommendations as to money for running expenses lend to a very heated discussion An amendment was offered by Hon D T Hamil that instead of one per cent only one fourth of one per cent of pro ceeds of sales be applied for running expenses This amendment and also an amendment to Mr Hamils amendment that tho proceeds of sweepings be not applied to running expenses were adoptedBig in

Ballot System Oweusloro Inquirer There ought to be formed in cveryI precinct in the state a club the obje t of which should be to secure the largeat possible vote against the proposed amendment to the constitution to return to the viva voce system of voting The amendment was proposed by a set of heartless and corrupt politicians if not corrupt in action then in principle with the object of renewing their Uase on power in the state Tluy thought that if they could secure ati upen vote many men who now vote their sentiments independent of part lines would not have the courage to do so anti wouldsupport the Democratic ticket at all times through craven fear ot criticism and ostnicis in They do not reflect that the average independent is a man of conviction who will vole his sentiment without regard to whether or not the political heeler is looking over his shoulder or whether he is to be con fronted in the future with his recorded voteThe effect of the open ballot may be xnctly opposite to what is looked for The Republican party in this state may be forced by the change to become more titan a mere office seeking aggregation and to command the actual respect of a great body of men who do not respect it euoagh now to vote its tickets In that case there will be a vast accession to its ranks as a protest against the backward step which is now sought to be taken with regard to the ballot and which there are grave reasons to believe will be takenThis occured to some of those wbo are in favor of the opeu ballot and they regret that the question has been brought to an issue at this time If the amend ment should be adopted it would be only1 to precipitate a figbt for its abroga tion and steps would be taken to elect a legislature if possible to provide for an amendment to amend the amendment out of the constitution No progressive people with a desire for hot est in politics would tolerate the viva voce system of voting and if it should be adopted it would not last long even if tens of thousands of Democrats in this state have to vote the Republican ticket for a season to kill it Dont Borrow Trouble It is a bad habit to borrow any thing but the worst thing you can

it took no small amount of bravery for a woman to Inaugurate and carry on an undertaking of such magnitude But after five years of effort the whole of the 200000 was In hand It was found impracticable

Next Session of Congress It is rather amusing to those who are on the Inside of the political arena In Washington to observe the manner in which discussions of the tariff are conducted throughout the country In an academic way the theories of the tariff are talked over limit to tho men on whom the real work of revising the tariff would devolve there are very different considerations to Influence them They openly declare that the tariff ought to be revised but they say the danger to business Interests would be so great that they fear undertaking It They Insist that a struggle over the schedules would last six months and that during that time the business interests would he suffering stagnation that would afflict the country very sorelyThis view is scouted by the revision ists as one that has no standing with men who believe In doing things They claim that If such considerations are to prevail there never could be a revision of the tariff So Easy To Revise Not long ago the difficulties In agreeing upon changes IH the Dlngley I 1 Ao n tho wino October IIIschedules were illustrated by rep esentatlves who called on Speaker Cannon It happened that one day a prominent member called to Impress the speaker the easy manner In which the tariff night be revised You see declared time Massachu setts member we all make too much over the dlfllcMiltles In revising time tariff It would really be very sim pie We would only have to put hides stud coal on the list nnd the country would Imo practically satisfied We might do snore but that would really be enough There could be no difficulty In corning to an agreement on that merely a matter of a few weeksThe speaker listened Intently ns he always does listen to advice But trailing on the heels of the Massachu setts member came a representative Illinois who also wantet to revise the tariff lie started In the same as his lie thought there was altogether too much fuss made I by L over the revision of the tariff He declared that it would be an easy Job As Simple as Can Be What would you do with the tariff he was asked Why he replied Its as simple aa can be All you have to do Is to lower the tariff on woolen goods and to make a bigl reduction in the shoe schedules Practically that would satisfy everyone and If you did no more the coun try would be pleased Time Illinois was In formed that he had been preceded by a member from Massachusetts who thought that all that would be neces sary would be to put con lilacs and wool on the free list Hides on the free list exclaimed the Illinois speaker Not while I have the strength to stay here to light It Now you see what an easy thing it Is to revise the tariff Bald the I was God again remarked the speaker In his quaint style I would make some changes in time tariff I would put them Into effect before anybody knew what they were to be made Then there would be no unsettling of business and at least some people would be happy I Question an Absorbing One What alarms so many prominent protectionists Is what they claim Is the danger of unsettling the business conditions of the country The the oretical adjustment of the tariff acv cording to the principles of protection I I VJt llltr From WnshlnRtonPost my experience luis been that ried I suddenly carne upon them ncrs for Massachusetts with wool free from predecessor I Iis having very little effect on them In fact the do not even care to discuss that phase of the ques tion A revision of time tariff with the declared purpose td simply lower time schedules they say would have time same effect on the country that they claim would follow an attack on the tariff principles by the free tracl ers They claim that merchants would not hilly goods when lower tariff rates might still further reduce the price they would have to pay That condi Lions lasting six months they fear would upset all business conditions They say It might mean panic But they are likely to have their views very forcibly contested by the tariff revslonlsts next winter The revisionists and the men who believe In the principles of reciprocity are banding together to give battle in the halls of Congress Time citadel Is

Its Blaze of Color Attracts the SightSeer Mrs Roosevelts Old Fashioned Gar den as the generous collection o posies west of the south veranda o the White House is called has been a continuous muss of bloom and color during the summer and fall quite different from any of the other Govern went flower displays There are runny of these surrounding the different de partmental buildings those of the De partment of Agriculture being particu larly elaborate and ornate but It Is the opinion of summer visitors to Washing ton that the old tlme corner of the mistress of the White House is the most pleasing of all At least it seems M strike the majority of fancies for It recalls the scenes and times of earlier days This part of the White House grounds has always been devoted to flowers but until Mrs Hoosevelts ad vent it has been rather given up to the latest fads of horticulture than to a display of the familiar blooms of the old time flower garden The changes in the White house aIcouple of years ago were officially known as the restoration but have perhaps been more generally termed the mutilation It seemed necessary that something should be done there was talk of reconstructing the White 1II OF THE RF mF Ts ITouse but the niggardly npproprla tlons made by Congress prevented any extensive change or improvement There has however been nothing hut approval for the changes in Mrs Koosevelts garden The location is an ideal one somewhat sheltered and eluded and when the President and Mrs Roosevelt gave the garden party last spring to the International Rail way delegates there

says an Kngllsh writer It cannot be that outdoor sports gymnastic exercise and so on hove stretched her out and made her as strong as she Is because her brothers have lord precisely the same advant ages and they have not developed at the same rate It seems to me therefore that the secret lies In the fact that of recent years girls have become far greater consumers of sweetmeats than ever were their mothers and grandmothers Time was when we should never have dreamt of having sweets on our luncheon dinner mill tea tables Now it would be quite extraordinary were one not to offer these dainties And Is more women are not merely contMt to eat Hweetmuats at our meals r but they consume tI at all times and in all places between meals It was recently said that boxes of bonbons play a

of Bambang had fallen down before the Sultan of Gaiuissl In the game of poker Army ollicers stationed III the Philippines are stated to have carefully coached the Datto Grande In this game and their estimation of their ability to Instruct has had a severe shock a result of the Dattos losses of his carabaos wives and raiment since it appears his opponent had never been taught how to play but had relied upon his untutored skill and the devices known only to the Moros The next thing we may expect to learn will be that this wily Moro Ah Sing has actually taken the uniform from some of our army officers aye even those considered adepts at the game This news Is probably of more interest to the people of our Island possession and to the citizens of the United States thus is at first implied

Today we can state as positive and final that there are canals on Mars because the photographs say so and a photographic negative IsInotliln If not truthful In my firm belief It Is only 8I question of time possibly of mouths maybe a few years when we shall be able to determine the exact nature and probable purpose of the canals of our planetary neighbor Meanwhile we have a number of excellent negatives which have served to bring us a bit closer to Mars than ever lit the past The negatives thoroughly confirm time eye III showing not only the existence of the canals but reveal them as continuous lines of tens and even hun dreds of miles In length Of course It Is yet Impossible to say positively whether the Martian canals are of artificial or natural creation or exactly of what

bad acres in the United States is again brought to light n through the efforts of the Department of Agriculture tp Induce more general attention to the culture of the basket f willow There are very many farms i in this country which contain some low land and through which runs a small stream This portion of the farm Is too often aFlowed to run to waste dense growths of weeds and scrub prospering in the rkh moist soil and the locality rarely visited by the farmer except when in search of some stray cattle which have comedown I to the brook for a drink Although introduced In this country M ns early as 1810 willow growing In America occurs only in restricted lo calltles throughout a relatively small 1 portion of the country On account of the isolation of these groups of growers with little or no connection and because the growers are not in touch with basket makers there has been little chance for improvement I v American linnketn Mato w- In lrchmnd Virginia Peollnj Green- Willow for Basket Work While this is not true of the condi tions in western New York the trade there demands only the cheapest grade of the steamed willow But steaul peeled rods have a dark color and hence cannot be used for line baskets Willows Grow on Corn Land The general idea is that willows will grow only on very swampy ground but experience shows tint all serious attempts made on well drained soil even though of poor qual ity have lienI successful The ground is prepared just the same as It would llac for corn or wheat Willow plant Ing generally is done III time autumn should be in rows time

WILLOW SWAMP exception through the country wil lows are plumed from D inches to a foot impart in rows iii foot to a yard distant from one another thus allow ing from shout 11000 to 12ouo to the acre This method of wide planting Is followed for several reasons It of course being cheaper to plant fewer cuttings and the cost of cultivation being reduced the wide rows allowing for the use of a plow It Is also un derstood and hiM by time higher authorities that the mum shoots from a yieldthereon meadow or corn loud tho first year the rows are hoed two or three times andI later run through with a light plow In later years only the plow Is used On bottomland however they are only cultivated once and there fore only grassed with a sickle To Produce Straight Rods The Department of Agriculture has found that though there may be oh f jection to close planting on account of increased cost and greater amount of cultivation necessary both a heavier yield and longer more even sized and better rods Ire obtained straighter less branchy and less ta poring While a yield of four tour of green rods per acre may he ob tained In twelve yetis where the holts are planted In rows three feet apart t with a distance of one foot between holts over six tons are obtained from an acre planted LflxU itches In only ten years The Department also ad vises that the cuttings should be not less than twelve Inches In length mind planted with the buds pointing up ward and that when placed in the perfectly are planted close together all weeds nnd grass the foes of tho willow fthould bo kept out Osiers should be cut tiio first year even If no valuable material can bo obtained for if this is delayed until the second year there is apt to be a tendency to brunch so that less valu able material can be cut This cutting should be done during the winter from Norember 1 to March l and as near the ground as possible The t l l fGu unnwuuununnnro n n bundles of these cuttings should then be kept in running water until small leaves or sprouts appear when they will be ready to peel Pretty White Willows Willows thus peeled arc of n fine white color while those which un dergo steaming or boiling for the re iioval of the bark are of a dark color being stained by coloring matter con tained in the bark but experience has shown that the articles made of boiled willow are much more durable than those made from the white rods of spring peeling The operation Is so simple that old persons incapable of arduous labor can make fair wages doing this sort of work And yet the farmer may ask IiiI there a market for willow ware in this country the United States con sumes the largest amount of willow ware of any country in the world From one district In Germany alone as far back as 1S93 in spite of the panic existing at that time 2150000 1 worh of fine willow ware was im ported Since that date however the value of willow imports has decreased due probably to the Increase of wil low growing in this country Time manufacture of willow is what might tbe termed a house industry in which time men women and children are engagcd in peeling and split ting the rods and weaving the bas kets under contract Big Crops This Year Secretary Wilson has returned to Washington from a tour of the Northwest where he was shown some yields lie expresses mor91lstbelief that the farmers have money now than ever was theirs be fore and that with such full treasure chests there is no danger of an indus trial panic The years crop of wheat corn and oats will be larger according to Mr Wilsons experienced judgment than were the big crops of last year lie says that the area capable of raising durum or macaroni wheat is now pushing well into the desert region The yield of this wheat alone this year it is believed will exceed UO000000 bushels a wheat1 by the way which grows where other wheat will not grow and which six years ago was an unknown thing among American growers Mr Wilson gives us the pleasing Information

have pure food or at least know what it is adulterated with and he is one of the most active advocates in the country of national pure food legislation The question of pure food he said Is one that should be better un derstood hall store actively engaged In by people generally Wo have scented legislation enabling us to prevent the importation of impure and harmful foods but the people are

illustrate the point There is at this time a great demand for gluten flours They are recommended for certain diseases and there are various preparations on the market which are sold at high prices Many of the socalled gluten flours contain but a small percentage of pure gluten they are filled with chalk and starchy substances and are not nt all what isI claimed for them This Iis one example a

of curiosity there is a corn stalk of mammoth size reach- Ing almost up to the very roof of the agricultural building The history of the stalk is perhaps as marvelous ns the object itself It appears that prior to the last hot wave which swept over the coun try a farmer in Kansas sent his fif teenyearold son out to take a look over the corn field and notify him of the prospects In order to do this the son went to the implement shed which this wise farmer had provided and procured a ladder with which he climbed one of the cornstalks After surveying a tine growth of corn for miles around the boy started to climb down but in his excitement at the prospects of the golden harvest which PEELED WILLOWS he had failed his father would reap to notice the rapidity of the growth of the stalk which he had ascended Ais quickly as he stepped down so mud1 more rapidly the stalk seethed to grow mill he was 110 nearer the bottom than when he started ills father noting the absence1 of ills son saw that It would be useless for him to hunt through the Jungle of waving corn KO he climbed to the top of his windmill and his anxious eyes beheld his boy waving his red bandana In despair Hastily summoning his neighbor mul his other two sturdy sons they proceeded with axes to chop down the wicked stalk Their axes however failed to find the same mark twice so rapidly did the stalk shoot upward Night came on with out their accomplishing anything and the toy was left to what appeared to be a terrible fate Like most 1nnlln8I boys however he was awake his opportunities antI existed for along time on the raw corn having con sumed so much that he later notified his parents by means of a message written on one of the dried corn leaves that he was getting so fat there was danger of the stalk breaking with his weight He wrote that he believed a more balanced ration would relieve his fears suggesting the planting of beans at the base of the cornstalk as an expedient However before the beans could secure enough growth the drought came on and stopped the growth of the stalk and the boy was enabled to climb down thus saving his life As mementos of the occasion the lad gathered up the corn cobs which he had thrown down from his lofty scat amounting to something over four hehlscorncob pipes which ho is exhibiting PortlandExposlUon Prior to 1789 the Speaker of the House of Commons was paid a

control of nil matters in connection with the construction of the Panama canal is to be transferred from the War Department to the State Department Under the law the work is to be performed under the di rection of the President und ho originally intrusted it to Secretary Taft on the general ground that all national engineering works were properly the business of the War Department It is now realized that Secretary Taft has a great deal more than his 10I r7 r From Washington Post portlonate share of the government work and responsibility and it is with a view of relieving him of a portion of his otllclal burdens that the President suggested tile advisability of the transfer of the Panama Canal work to the State Department Secretary Roots acceptance of I the trust would enable Secretary Taft to devote more of his time to the con sideration of important questions af fecting the government of the Philip pines and the business of the army generally It is known that Secretary Taft has no personal ambitious in connection with the Panama canal work und Is entirely willing as a matter of general expediency that its supervision should be transferred to Secretary Root as the head of the State Department Secretary Hoot however with all his ability for hard work is under stood to Hays no hankering after the canal job TOE FLOOD OF NOAH Geology Proves the Foundation ot the Biblical Account There are Biblical doubters who scoff at the idea that there ever was a great hood yet the testimony of the geologists to say nothing of Ignatius Don nellys theory of the submerged conti nent of Atlantis proves that at onetime the entire earths surface was covered with water Professor Wright of Oberlin who has made geology a life study brings us new light upon the subject In writing on the subject of the Contributions of Geology to the Creditability of the Flood he states that the level of the land changes con stantly The highest mountains were once below the sealevel as is proven by the finding of seashells on the summits of the highest peaks All of Cen tral Asia was once covered by water and is now drying up In fact the drying out process has been going on for thousands of years The Turkestan and Siberian lowlands were once sub merged while evidence is shown that the Desert of Gobi was once a body of water equal to the Mediterranean in size and depth I The yammer of the Jordan in ages back was covered with water to a depth of from 1000 to 1400 feet while changes of level and climate in Asia seem to prove that the Deluge once passed over the entire country Uncle Sams

1From WORDS a J I Ieach of the substances named as hav ing been used in its experiment wonld when converted into gas give forth a knight illumination for till length ot time stated what would iit all amount toY What now fact would it prove Not surely that patent medicines will burn but that those particular ones which were selected for some reason by the experimenter contained alcohol in varying quanti ties and that alcohol will burn a fact which every child already know I and which hIs no bearing hutlver on the question of tne value of these preparations as therapeutic agente What then was tho need and pur pose of this spectacular display of tubes and lamps anti receivers of original1 packages of the preparations which itI was sought to condemn of graduate glasses and the various et ceteras of H pietended scientific experiment To om minds the intent vas clear It was simply to furnish a pretense ot ocular proof of the assertion that patent medicines will burn and thus by implication to convey the idea that as a class these remedies are nothing but disguised alcoholic drinks possessing no value from a medicinal standpoint That the reme dies which were the subject of the ox poriment do contain alcohol is ot course well known but this is also true of nearly all of the harmacopoeiul 1 tinctures fluids extracts etc the alcoholic content of tho former being in the propcrtion of about r0 per cent and yet no one has over considered this fact as sufficient cause for their general and indiscriminate condemna Lion As far as wo are concerned wo be hove the whole socalled expeiiuient to be a faze and a fiand that in fact it was never carried outthat it is a pretense wilfully devised for the pur pose of befuddling the understandings of the unscientific readers of the jour nal exploiting it with the intent to inflict injury on an industry which like all others contains its fair pro portion of unworthy membrs yet which when properly conducted is an honorable calling and pel forms a vaIn able pubho service The fact seems to be and it Incomes more apparent as Mr Uok continues his crusade that he is actuated not FO much by a desire to get at the real tacts or out of consideration for the public health as oy a feeling of spio and chagrin against all patent medicine manufacturers for the action of one ot them who it will be ro meiabered compelled JUr Bok to con teas to a false and libelous publication to make public acknowledgment and apology in the columns of his journall for the same and to whom ho must shortly answer in a suit for 20000l damagesLike petty men and especially thoso of effeminate natures those with ft womans tastes characteristics and sensibilitiesthe Sissies and Miss NancysMr Bolt seems predisposed to hysteria nnd in this morbid condi tion he fumes and frets and grows bor borygmu over subjects that virile men treat in a rational way and without nerve disturbance or excitation Mr Bok in his crusade against pat ent medicines is bringing not solid arguments based on truth hut all sorts of clap trap fake experiments acd perverted facts Ho thus indulges in the very offenses which he affects to dispise in the patent medicine men and wnioh are tne supposed occasion of his violent outbreaks There is one peculiar phase about this recent crusade against patent medicines which has been tne causo of frequent remark and that is the manner in which beor is always brought forward so prominently and In contrast with patent medicines to the great advantage of the former This is not the first time that Mr Boa has made this invidious comparison for it will bo lemombered that the conspicuous thing about his first article on this subject as in this instance a showing ol the small amount of alcohol contained in beer as compared to that contained in pat ent medicines It will be remembered also that a large brewer on that occasion reproduced Mr Boks quasi indorsement of this beverage and used foI 1 it in a full page advertisement in the daily papers to advertise its product and that Mr Bok whether by his consent or not we do not know WitS thus mode to appear in the attitude of boosting beer to his female followers Colliers WeeklyI to iin the issue that contained its most savage onslaught on patent medicines in general that in which a criminal1 alliance between the newspapers and patent medicine manufacturers was charged while not directly surd i words contrasting the merits of beer and DHtont medicines as Mr Holt did on the ocoisions referred to published on a full page directly opposite its editorial denunciation of patent meu icinesa most flaming advertisement of anotnAr brand of beera competitor of the one which Mr Bok was suppose to favorin which tho purity an bevecIageI Now it can hardly be possible that the brewers have bought cp or subsidized these two grout journals and ye+ the circumstances as we have related them are at least suffi chant to excite the suspicion that there meatbea nigger in the wood pile somewhere Or if no more they tend to show hypootisy and deceit rather than a sincere desire on the part of these editors to discourage the use of alcoholic drinks If toes had an honest purpose If they had wanted to bo fair why let us ask did they only take a tablespoonful of beer and1 compare it with an equal quantity of Peruna Pinuhams Compound and Foatotters Bittes in their moot at tempt to show how very much weave this beverage is in alcohol than are the preparations with witch he con trast is made A tablespoonful it Is true is what the manufacturers pIes cribe as an wverago dose of their prep arations but who ever heard of beer being drunk H tablpspoonfnl at n time On the contrary as is well known it is consumed by the halfpint pint or even in much larger quantities If therefore it had been intended to make a fair and honest comparison the experimenter would havo taken not a tablespoonful ot berbut a pint orjiUhaltpint at the very least And then the result would have shown that tho ordinary draught of beer con tains from 1ft to 83 tin s as much alcohol as the experiment mazes it appear to eXltrl1mentI would have burned not 2U seconds but from 5 to 10 mums tfs When it is considered how small a quantity of alcohol IR contained in a tablespoonful of the average patent medicine cer thinly not more than an eighth of an ounceit can be seen that there is very little danger of these remedies being taken simply to get an intoxi eating effect or of their being used continuously or to great excess and especially since their mednuuul in gredients render nearly all of thorn more or less unpalatable and besides the action of the drugs themselves would as a general thing cause the stomach to revolt before enough of the alcoholic content hall bonn ingested to produce intoxication With beer the case is different It is a seductive beverage one which grows upon its votaries and besides one that is found everywhere and is cheat It is taken alone and in company i it is fund nt the restaur ants to the gardens in the bar room and bierhaus of thaw laborer and the gilded saloons and cafes of the wealthy It is displayed in tbo grocery stores is canned to the homes of the mechanic and the vork ing mltnIn fact it is omnipresent and universal It has never been do termined how much beer an average man can absorb but wo all Know I that beer will produce intoxication and of all drunkards the beer drunk ard is the most repulsive Generally overgrown with unhealthy fat with bloated cheek and bleary eye of slow and uncertain gait thick of speech and sodden brain the beer drunkard is tut a horrid travesty of a man In view therefore of these wellknown facts it is absurd in these journals to knocK patent medicines simply because they contain alcohol and at the samo time to glorify beer and soil their advervtlslng space for its exploitation Subscribe for the News I i c I PROFESSIONAL CARDS u LATHAM M EDICALI INSTITUTE ELIZABETHTOWN

County From 1883 to 1904 Compared = = An- j Impartial Statementi dnFACTS AND FIGURES FOR THE PEOPLE TO CONSIDER The Breakenridge Democrat several week ago engaged Mr Clayton Cros eon on its editorial staff to write a satires of HI tide concerning the Re publican administration of county Affairs during the seven years it was in power and to write no the succeeding ytirs of Damocrutic rule The result has bx n a number of pub lications that are not correct tbat are nnjnstand that do not show the facts These articles would not have been noticod had they continued merely as newspaper publications But since the Democratic candidates by causing printed extracts from these articles to bo sent broadcast over the county in the form of circulars tar reby Hpproviny of their publication and making them an issue in this canvass it is believed to be supply an act of justices that the Raimbloftn administration of seven tears aboold lie set in a proper light before the public and their adminis tration vindicated That tbe charges that the Republican offloinls ot that administration were robbers and thieves and fit subjects for n convicts coliand that the vile sland er that the piowmt Republican candi dates are pledged to robbery before they take their suite should be denounced One would inter from these articles that for seven years the fiscal affairs of Breckenridge county were badly handled but that under Democratic lull everything has been all right Tho Republican administration has been accused of ROBBING THE PEOPLE OF 05000 BY WRONGFUL APPRO PRIATION UF THE TAXhb IT COL

effect the poll tax In BrecK enridgo county was 300 and the ad valorem tax 10 cents on each 100 Since the present constitution the poll tax has been and cannot exceed 1150 for general expenses The year 1001 was the last year of Republican rule the year 1002 the first year of the present administration This statement for the year 1002 shows a decrease over the year 1501 the sum of 2422 the year InOaj2 187 and the year 1U04 1540 The Breckonridge Democrat claims this to be a reduction in the amount of the taxes and a casual observer looking over the settlements of the sheriff and this statement would take this to be true Thorp is another fact however connected with this that throws a different light over it alto gether In 1002 the fiscal court reduc ed the poll tax for general expenses to 100 and added 50 cents poll tax to the road tux The Republicans put the poll tax for general expenses at 150nnd had no poll tax for road pur posesThe number of tithes for the year 100 as

year 11111211IOiO tor the year 100315 208 and for the year 1004 15H17 We find then that the amount produc ed for either year will exceed the mount levied by the Repuolicans fur any year while in power

order ed that claims amounting to 1218 be paid out of the levy for 18U5 This amount the Republican administration paid for the Democrats About the close of the Republican ad ministration the east abutment of the Stephensport budge sunk about five feet and there was danger of tbo bridge being lost Owing to high water some of the bridges between Stephens port and Cloverport were washed away and

orders of the fiscal court shows that more than once there has boon a shortage in some levy and the sherIff would pay more money than the tax amounted to and Mr Barnes would be airented to pay back to him One order along directed him to pay the sheriff 2103 This sinking fund that should have boon used to satisfy this bonded debt this been used tor other purposes to a great extent has become of iU Tho Democrat says that the Repub licans in two doubling jumps raised the ad valoruin tax from 19 cento on th 100 to 40 cents This Is true but why aid not the Democrat tellI why this was done The records it appears to show itand the Democrat kn ws it We have stated that under our State constitution the poll tax is limited to 150 For mOle than twentyfive years our poll tax had been 300 and this was our principal source of roveI mine When this reduction took place there were 4080 tithes in the county making the pull tax 12240 This was reduced one halfj120Thrs deficiency had to bo met and an ad valorem tax was the only remedy The levy was Increased 10 cents making the ad valorem tax 20 cents on the 100lTump num ber one When the tax system for working the ronds was inaugurated tax of 20 cents on the 100 was levied raising the ad valorem tax to 40 cents Jump number two The reduction of the poll tax and the levy of the road tax caus ed this increase in the ad valorem tux If the Democrat wanted the truth told why did it not publish these facts it knew them and supressets them Suppressing the truth suggests a falsehood The Democrat claims the Democratic administration has saved the people 32000 and they figure it in this way 10073 all from the road district tax except 850 county expense 1003 5317 all road district tax except 002 county expense 1004 5707 all road district tax except 003 county expense It esti mates the year 10051U0UtThts would make the county expense something over 1000 the whole amounting to 22007The Democrat prefaces its tabulated statement in this manner Let us lay prejudices aside and lOOK those facts in the face as we find them + nd act according to the conclusions we form by exercising an honest unbiased judg ment have taken tho assessed valuation of wealth in the county as it is given us each year und calculated the amount of taxes paid to each fund at the rate they now carry Then 1 found what would have been paid thom if thpy carried the same rate they did four ream ago Subtracting ono from the other the difference or coarse is the saving For time sake of brevity I have added tho General Fund Pauper Fund and Sinking Fund together nuder the head of County Expense and following are tabulated state ments of tbo amounts Paved on the several funds for the different years Now why not go to the records for the road tax and get the facts and figures and show the truth The records show his tabulated statement to be utterly without foundation rime following statement will show tthe amount of road tax collected by the

Innovations or introductions it costs more to put it in worming ordor than it does to carry it on after it is once established This the Uepnblicans had to contend with Machinery and laborrand experience to develop was the part of the Republicans with the extra costs attending A system developed and the machinery and implements to downeto the Democrats This apparent saving to the people of 5571 is an average of 1303 per year in four years Thorn is something uncanny in this saving There is an oppressive air about it It causes the I people unrest It is oppressive and a burden The records in the Brecken ridgo county clerks office the acts of the fiscalI court will tnrow light on the matter LET US EXAMINE THE RECORDS Time Republicans levied a road tax of 20 cents on the 100 and reduced tbe number of days for working the roads by calling out the hands to two Jays in the year and had they continued in power the two working days would have been done away with The Democrats decreased the road tax 10 lents und increased the working days on the road to four with power and authority in the supervisor or road overseerto call out the hands in case of emergency as many days in the year as they may see fit That apparent saving of 5571 in four years to the people is an average of 1303 ptr year In JU04 there were 4754 tithes in this county This sav- Ing of 1303 in a year amounted to 35 cents to each tithe Tho number of road hand in the county is about 4500 Tley are required to work four days in the year two days more than Republicans required These two days lauor is worth 200 The labor of 4500at 2 OOarnounts to 9000 So we seta that 4500 people are taxed JO 00i to save to the tax pavers 1303 What have the poplo gainpd by this wonderful tax saving method 1 In tour days at 1 per day tilt peo pie pay 18000 taxes In four years at 2 they pay 30000rat 4 72000 Is this a relef or a burden to the people It is u burden to threefourths of tho tax payers of BreoKcnndgo county But says the Democrat wo have reduced your tpxes 12 cents how can this bo a burden Y We will show peoplejretion For bread they have received a stone for fish a scorpion Remember kind voter that under Republican rule you paid an advalorem tax of 40 cents on the 100 under Democratic rule you pay 28 cents a reduction of 12 cents Yes U kind and beneficent democracy With one hand you put a penny in the urn of poverty but with the other take n shilling out Of this I12 cents reduction 10 cents is on the road tax To the farmer who by the sweat of face has bought end paid for his little farm worth 500 the mechanic who has paid for and owns his cottage home worth 500 the day laborer who by 10 hours labor a day has been able to become the owner of that home that shelters his wife and little ones this reduction of 10 cents on your road tax saves him CO cents Half tho people ot the county pay taxes on less than 1000 and fully three fourths of thorn pay taxes on less than 2500 Under Republican rule the man with 2500 was taxed lfiJ and two days labor which would inane it 7 Under Democratic rule ho is taxed Jo cents and a poll of 50 cents making 3 Run fonr days labor spiking 7 The present system benefits the rich Ulan but it burdens the poor Do away with your compulsory road working and give the poor man an opportunity of paying his taxes by honest days work at honest prices We have under the present road system seven road supervisors Six of them are paid 11501 each per day for their work and tho other U75 for the days they are actually em ployed and these supervisors are to judge of the necessity for tho work If they thinK it is necessary they can work every day in the year 313 days widen would amount to 380 1 about one half the road tax Such a sug gestlon however seems preposterous But who can tell how many lays our supervisors have worked Why did thoy not report their chums to the last fiscal court Why hold it off till April 1000 It may be that there in no money to pay them We see from the report of claims allowed published in the Democrat that one person was allowed 570 for money ho advanced for work done for the county Is the county out of money Is the levy insufficient Delinquent List The Democrat has something to say about the delinquent list and jump settlements It claims that in four years it has saved the people 4088 that previous to this administration the

saving to the people 750 and was the last settlement passed on by the Republicans Tho Republican court was the first to attack tllA jump settlement system lrom this beginning and from this fight made

Let the people withhold their judgment in this matter until the courtwsettles it for the question is now in court The suits will show the amount sued for is under 4000 In regard to the 1158 railroad tax district matter tho commission to be allowed the sheriff in special railroad i tax district was settled by the court ot appeals fomptirne before the first settlement of railroad taxes was made under tile present administration and it has simply obeyed the decision of a higher court The Democrat writes a long stateImeat concerning the railroad tax and the sheriffs commission It says trfc sheriff collected 10 per cent commis SlOn when ho should have collected only 4 per cent The charter for the railroad under which this tax was voted has this clause An annual tax sufficient to pay the semiannual installments of interest on such bonds and the prmoipal when it shall bq come due shall bo collected and paid out by the officers of such conntvcity or town as provided in the case of other county CIty or town tax The first railroad tax settlement was made t nnoer a Democratic court by a Dem r ooratic commissioner while a Demo cratic county attorney was tho advisor of tbe court and the money paid over to a Democratic receiver Now if tillS 10 per cent commission was illegal why lId these men not bring suit to crrrect iU The precedent of r10 per cent commission was set by the Democrats There were Sad 9land llawyers all over the state tn held that tho 10 per cent commissioc was legal and they continued to do j so until the decision of the Court of Appeals in J002 The
