Hardinsburg Dec 25SpeclaL- The opinion of Judge Weed S Chelf was handed down last week in the case of W H Bowmer c contestants vsOI DeHaven c contestees which is t style of the suit in which the validity of the local option election held in Clover port on the 5th day of May was involved It is a complete victory for the local op tion people The court holds that t t circuit court has jurisdiction of the case that the county judge and the two jjirs tires of the peace residing nearest the court house is the proper contest board and that because there was no specialI registration held before the vote w asa taken the election is illegal and 4 He sustained Judge Moormans opinion rendered in the former trial upon ever point Judge Chelf concludes his opin- Ion as follows I am inclined to think that the ci cuit court has obtained jurisdiction of this matter and that it stands for trial1 In this court de novo This brings me to the question of the validity of t election and upon this question I a inclined to think under the ruling of judge ORear in Early vs Raines th the point relied upon by contestants as to the failure to provide for and hold registration for the voters in Cloverport is well token Another point upon which they rely may also contain merit but as I think the failure to register is fatalI and renders the election void it is not necessary to go into that question It is said that the contestees are considering the advisability to appeal from the decision to the Court of Appeals The attorneys for the contestants are L Wortham Babbage andJohn P

MISSISSIPPI Majority of the Victims Negroes and the Exact Number of Dead May Never Be KnownOf the List of Passengers and Crew OneHalf Are Missing Vicksburg Miss Dec 20Tho steamer W T Scovell plying In the Vicksburg and Davis Bend trade was destroyed by a boiler explosion On account of the large number of negroes on board It Is Im possible to ascertain the actual number of dead and injured but officers of the boat who arrived here state that not less than 10 nor more than 16 were killed The probabilities are that a like number were Injured The accident occurred at Gold Dust Landing abbut 17 miles south of Vicksburg The Soovell was at the landing taking on freight when suds denly a terrific explosion occurred and the boat was blown practically to atoms Many of the timbers were thrown hundreds of yards and some of those aboard were blown almost to splinters and other parts of tho boat were so badly damaged that she began to sink Immediately When the Cordlll left her she was listing heavily and her cargo of 1000 sacks of cotton seed and 85 bales of cotton will be lost o The story of the accident as told by J T Bruce the engineer of the boat Is as follows We were lying at tho Gold Dust Landing taking on a cargo when I noticed a small quantity oti water oozing through the boiler 1 suspected that something was wrong aid proceeded to make an examina tlon About this time tho Scovell broke her head line and drifted so that I did not have time to make a thorough examination at that moment As soon as I got her back to the bank I crawled on top of the boiler and proceeded with the investigation I had just got down from the boiler when the explosion occurred The catastrophe I believe was due to a defective boiler plate The number of dead and Injured ne groes can not be stated at this time but of a crew and passenger list ofI about 50 about half are missing negro dead were cared for at the place where the accident occurred as were sonic of the Injured About five of the Injured negroes were brought to Vicksburg on the steamer Senator Cordlll with the white dead and in jured Victims of Ship Disaster Vicksburg Miss Dec 21Accord ing to the latest news obtainable by

senate President Roosevelt sent to the senate a special message con cerning tho peremptory discharge of three companies of colored soldiers in the Twentyfifth United states in fantry He says I ordered the discharge of nearly All the members of companies B C and Dot the Twentyfifth Infantry by name In the exercise of my constitutional power and In pursuance of what after full con federation I found to bo my constitu tional duty as commanderlnchlef of the United States army I am glad to avail myself of the opportunity afforded by these resolutions to lay before the con gress the following facts as to the mur derous conduct of certain members of the companies In question and as to the conspiracy by which many of the other members of these companies saved tho criminals from Justice to the disgrace of the United States uniform Attention is called to reports on the Brownsville troubles made by Major A P Blockson Lieutenant Colonel L A Lovering and Brigadier General B A Garlington which reports accompany the message and concerning which the president says An effort 1ms been made to discredit the fairness o the Investigation Into tho conduct ot tI 4e colored troops by point Ing out that General Garlington Is a southerner Precisely tho same action would have been taken had the troops been white Indeed the discharge would probably have been mado In more sum mary fashion Details of the riot are cited with this comment The soldiers were the aggressors from start to finish They met with no sub stantial resistance and one and all who took part In that raid stand ss deliberate murderers who did murder one man who tried to murder others and who tried to murder women and children The act was one of horrible atrocity and so far as I am aware unparalleled for In famy In the annals of tho United States armyAfter reviewing the facts set forth in the reports the president says It Is vital for the army to be Imbued with the spirit which will make everyman In It and above all the officers and nnnrommlHxIoned officers feel It a mat ter of highest obligation to discover and punish and not to shield the criminal In uniform Yet some of the noncom missioned officers and many of the men of the three companies In question have banded together In a conspiracy to pro test the assassins and wouldbe assas sins who have disregarded their uniform liy the conduct above related Many of those noncommissioned officers and mon must have known and all of them may have known crcumstanoes which would have led to the conviction of those en gaged In the murderous assault By my direction every effort was mado to persuade those Innocent of murder among them to separate themselves from I the guilty by helping to bring the criminals to Justice They were warned that If they did not take advantage of the of fer they would all be discharged from the service and forbidden again to enter thn employ of the government They refused to profit by the warning I accordingly had them discharged If any organlza tlon of troops In the service white of black Is guilt of similar conduct In the future I shall follow precisely the same course I may arid that the soldiers of longest service and highest position who suffered because of the order so far from being those who deserve most sympathy deserve least for they are the very men upon whom we should be able especially to rely to prevent mutiny and murder Mor evil and sinister counsel never was given to any people than that given to colored men by those advisers whether black or white who by apology and condonation encourage conduct such as that of the three companies In question If the colored men elect to stand by criminals of their own race because they are of their own race they assuredly lay up for themselves the most dreadful day of reckoning livery farsighted friend of the rolorotl race In Its efforts to strive nnwvrd nnd upward should teach llrst us the most Important lesson alike to the white man and the black

cement Cement fs to be the favorite building material of the future The Geological Survey has just Issued a bulletin stating that there Is a noticable concentration of Interests in the cement Industry and that the concentration will become year by year more marked The eighty eight plants in existance last year were owned by seventyeight companies and several nominally Independent compan ies were closely united in ownership When the demand grows more widespread there will be more activity in productionThe limitation now is the great cost of cement plants making their In stallation prohibitive for any but firms of heavy capital The cement industry is now in a more concentrated condition than the iron and steel interests at the time of the formation of the United Steel Corporation The total authorized capital of Mlt the Portland cement companies in operation stands between 110000000- a 125 000 000 The capitalization i- sat excessive when it is borne in mind thit it would cost from 75000000 to 35000000 to replace the plants now in existenceA corporation is reported to have purchased an 800acre tract of limestone land in Meade county to in still a Portland cement plant with a daily capacity of 1000 to 1500 barrels This Is but one of many recent eviden cies that capital has its eye on Kentucky for cement develoment Our duty to do everything to invite had naught to repel

JAPANESE QUESTION I Presidents Comment en eorta1 1 Mstcalfs Report Washington Dec 19 president Roosevelt transmitted to congress Secretary Metcalrs report on the Japanese situation in San Francisco ac companying it with recommendations of his own The president says The report deals with three matters of controversy first tho exclusion of th Japanese children from the San Fran cisco schools second the boycotting of Jnpancxo restaurants and third acts of violence committed against the Japanese As to the first matter I call your espe cia I attention to the very small number et Japanese children who attend school to the testimony as to the brightness cleanliness and Rood behavior of thes Japanese children In the schools and tq the fact that owing to their being scattered throughout the city tho require ment for them all to go to one special1 school Is Impossible of fulfillment and means that they can not have school fa JcilitiesLet me point out further that there would be no objection whatever to ex eluding from the schools any Japanese on account of age It is obviously not desirable that young men should go to school with children The only point In tho exclusion of the children themselves The number of Japanese children attend ing the public schools In San Franrlsco Is very small The government has al ready directed that suit be brought to test the constltutlondllty of the act tIn question but my very earnest hope tIs that such suit will not be necessary and that as a matter of comity the citizens of Ban Francisco will refuse to deprive these young Japanese children of educa tion and will permit them to go to the schools Thequestion an to the violence against the Japanese Is most admirably put b Secretary Metcalf and I have nothing t add to his statement I am entirely confident that as Secretary Metcalf says the overwhelming sentiment of the state of California Is for law and order and for the protection of the Japanese In1 their persons and property Both the chief of polka and the acting mayor of San Francisco insured Secretary Met alt that everything postblso would be done to protect the Japanese In the city- I authorized and directed Secretary Metcalf to state that If there was failure to protect persons and property then the entire power of the federal government within the limits of the constitution would be used promptly and vigorously to enforce the observance of our treaty which treaty guaranteed to Japanese residents everywhere In the Union full and perfect protection for their persons and property and to this end everything In my power would be done and all the forces of the United States both civil and military which I could lawfully em ploy would be employed Town Out of Fuel Topeka Kan Dec 19The state board of railroad

thusiasts the principles of municipal ownership are accepted by New York and the city controls the trolley lines the electric light and gas works and all the ferries as well as the water works and the police the fire and tho street departments Then such patriots as George Washington Plunkltt for many years or ganization leader of the Fifteenth dis trict In New York will rew rewards of greater magnitude than tHey have ever been able to gather under the present order of things Perhaps you have never heard about Mr Plunkltts honest graft schemes lie told about them himself In a book published last year which was Introduced by a paragraph Indorsing him as a veteran leader of the organization signed by Its greatest chief wereymadeoout of the city by men like him and In the first chapter of his book he uttered a vigorous protest Blackmallln gam blers saloon keepers disorderly peo ple etc he admitted to be wrong That was dishonest graft But he added theres an honest graft and Im an example of how It works I seen my opportunities and I took em Mr Plunkltts explanation of how he did these things will Illuminate the possibilities of future municipal owner ship days If they ever come After elucidating the ways he was tipped off at various times by mem bers of his party the party In power when new bridges new parks neM streets were to be opened so that ho might Invest In real estate likely to rise In price from the Improvements contemplated he aitls I havent confined myself to land Anything that pays Is In my line Then he gives a specific Instance totrcpavo a certain street and so would have several hundred thousand olJ paving blocks to sell he was on hush to buy and he knew Just what they were worth But a newspaper tried to do him and got some outside men from Brooklyn and New Jersey to bid against him Mr Plunkltts own words tell the story best Was I done Not much I went to each of the men and said How many of those 250000 stones do you want One sold 20000 and another wanted 15000 and another wanted 10 000 I said All right let me bid for the lot and Ill give each of you all you want for nothln They agreed of course Then the auctioneer yelled How much am I bid for these fine pavln stones Twodollars and fifty cents says I Two dollars and fifty cents screamed the auctioneer Oh thats n Joke Give me a real bid He found the bid was real enough My rivals stood silent I got the lot for 250 and gave them their share Thats bow the attempt to do Plunkltt ended find thats how all such attempts end1 It Is hardly necessary In the light of this authentic statement of honest grafts workings to enlarge upon tin extended opportunities that would some to the men of the Plunkltt stamp were the dream of municipal owner ship to come true Pluukltt says most politicians who are accused of robbin the city get rich the same way ho did They didnt steal a dollar from the lty They Just seen their opportunities and took them While in the legislature Plunkltt

Natural History and many other important public improvements lIe is now a millionaire Under the proposed order of things with city con trol of everything ho might become n billionaire Under municipal ownership of all public utilities in New Yorkand Inmost other titles In fact politicians like Plunkltt who at different times has been elected state senator assem blyman county supervisor and alder man by his follow citizens besides serving as police magistrate for one term and who boasts of his record in filling four public offices In one year and drawing salaries from three of them at the same time would flourish like a whole grove of green bay trees Go Slow on City Ownership Until politics in America Is purified far beyond Its present condition any large experiment in government own ershlp

city the Newark Advertiser declares that In tho event of mu nicipal ownership of street railways electric light and gas plums ferries and other public utilities the city employees would constitute u political army that would make a change of administra tion Impossible- It recalls the fact that 25000 city employees in Philadelphia kept Phila delphia In the hands of the corrupt Durham machine for years and only a great popular uprising overthrew the graftersIf had hind control of the street railroads and other public utilities In Philadelphia through municipal ownership It observes ho could have laughed at popular uprisings He would have been as absolute In his au thority as the czar The point is well taken In other cities the political situation under public ownership would be as It would In Philadelphia and New York Bosses may bo overthrown and grafters turned out whenever tho pub lic will it at present Public ownership of all public utilities would end this It would bind tho people hand and foot and deliver them Into the hands 3f political grafters Long Branch Record HOW CITIES LOSE MONEY Municipal Plants Pay No Taxes and Reduce Tax Receipts The subject of lost taxes is one that deserves far more attention than it usually receives from advocates of municipal ownership There Is scarce ly a municipal plant In this country which mentions this Item in Its reports although It Is Just as much an element In cost of production as coal and wages The omission is readily over looked because it is a negative expense involving no direct payment but only a loss of Income to tine city It you own a store for which you are receiving a good rental and dis possess your tenant in order to occupy It yourself the rental value of the store becomes a charge against your busi ness Just as It was previously a charge against your tenants business and you are out of pocket unless your profits exceed the rent you formerly received Similarly It a city buys out or otherwise dispossesses a public servo ice corporation the real personal and franchise taxes formerly paid by tho corporation become a charge against the operation of the municipal plant that succeeds the corporation and the city Is out of pocket unless the profits of Its plant exceed the taxes lost M 0 In Chicago as Dead as Caesar One of the most remarkable reversals of public opinion on record Is that which has taken place in Chicago in the past year In tho matter of mu nicipal ownership and operation The municipal ownership theory which a little more than a year ago flourished here with so much vigor as to attract the attention of the entire civilized world is now the deadest duck in the pond Apparently nobody believes In it any longer Certainly nobody over talks any more about ItChicago Journal When Officials Are Efficient When fiio aainlnMtrntioh 6t the departments now in charge of oiir local public officials show better results la economy and efficiency it will be time Bh

municipal ownership of public utilities that the practical carrying out of Its attractive features appears simple and of no serious moment and for a mu nicipality to take over and run water lights sewerage and even transports tlon appeals to taxpayers and the trade Is mode without the first nssui ance that the conduct of these proper ties will be along practical and busi ness ling It Is the failure to assure the prac tlcal that works the cvIl for municipal ownership Is a general ownership and a general ownership results too easily In Its being no special business of any citizen or taxpayer to look Into or Inquire after the conduct of the proper ties under control This leaves the management to a few who soon find that they have only themselves to ac count to that people are too busy to demand accountings and taxpayers accept any kind of report just so there Is the appearance of all being right anti light water sewerage etc are given It Is this Indifference and neglect on the part of taxpayers to take note ot municipal affairs which make munic- Ipal ownership of public utilities a hazardous and expensive matter The theory of municipal ownership with Its great saving to each taxpayer the extra service given and the great prof Its resulting can all be placed In fig ures beforehand but It Is a failure un less the taxpayers shall give earnest and serious heed to the conduct ot these public utilities for unless this Is done they will wake up some day with broken down properties and a big bond Issue to make good Newbern Week ly Journal THE GREAT TRANSITION Public

for further service of n number of gas and electric light plants and the closing sown of some of them at a dead loss o tho taxpayers should serve as a warning to other cities for this Is tho fate that IU likely to overtake all such plants In the long run For the first rear or two when no expensive re pairs are needed and the plant is thor itjghly up to date It ought not to be insult to make a good showing For i few years longer the bad bookkeep- Ing and Inadequate reports that are unfortunately the rule rather than tho sxceptlon unity blind the citizens to the deterioration of the plant and to Its Increasing losses But the day of reckoning inevitably comes when breakdown bad service or demand for new equipment that cannot masquer ads as extensions causes an Investi gation and then it

you I THE OF r THE RAILROAD Mr Roosevelts hatred of the raU roads which has reached the proportions of an intellectual obsession bids fair to bear substantial fruit in the not distant future Indeed it is quite certain that we shall all have to pay deep ly for the sins of the railroads The prospective penalty impresses us as being too inclusive We favor the severest punishment for the crime iof secret and fraudulent rebating which we take to be the root and genesis of tbe whole evill We should be content to see the giver and the receiver of the dishonest rebate both fined and sent I to prison as a just penalty and deterrent and we sincerely deplore the laxity amI inefficiency with which the statutes hae been enforced The public hns now had time for re flection and perceives the unroasonablf noes if not the dishonesty of rate regi lation as a remedy for malpractice However much astray the public mn be led by clamor and sophestry it will not always remain misled and it will very soon be aware that there is nQ connection between rate regulation and criminal rebating In the long run common sense will settle all such questions becauseit is at the bottom of pub lie opinion and public opinion is still the governing power in this country The transportation rates of the Unite States are the lowest in the world and are a scientific wonder They hav been achieved by the railroads themselves without any legislation or Gov ernment interference There is no page in the history of commerce that is so wonderful as that which records the fall in the cost of railroad transportatioi during the last thirtyfive yearsNatura causes brought it about and if natura causes are not checked in their opera Lion by fatuous and ignorant meddling rates will go lower yet If they are checkedand there is a recklessand mis chievous effort now on foot to do so then disaster will ensue as surely as the night follows the day and with disastei will come increased cost of transporta tionThe last quarter of the year has seei over 100000000 added to the wages of railroad employes Likewise the greatest decrease I in the efficiency of labqi ever noted in this or any othercountrjy The record of the prices of railroad supplies rails alone excepted during thi year shows the greatest advance ever known in a like period The condition of all around apparent prosperity is the most ominous disclosed in our annals In these conditions a 10 per cent hori zontal reduction in rates of transporta Why Refer- to Doctors Because we make medicines for them We tell them all about Ayers

Pectoral In breaking up a cold tion by the joint forces of the Interstate Commerce Commission and special enactment is proposed and is suggests at once to the same and competent obsci er that Mr Bryans idea of Government ownership 6f the railroads was wiser and more equitable and emptied a idc center regard for the rights of property It would seem as if the intention was ta go Mr Bryan one better or go him one worseIn face of this menace what rtire the railroads to do Where are they ta get the money to buy the additional trackage the need of which is now so painfully apparent the money for additional rolling stock the money ffor more motive power and the money ffor enlarged terminals The pressure ito acquire all these is the most acute that has ever existed in our railroad histor How can the money be forthcoming i in the presence os the destructive plans of the Federal Government What is the prospect for the wage earners As a highly privileged ciass they have some interest in knowing whence these thIngs are to come The apparent prosperity of the present must give way before the certain paralysis of the railroads As it is we see no signs of building the new trackage Indeed we are disturbed b the ominous fact that in spite of the well known and obvious conditions the market for steel rails is slackening It could not possibly do so if the railroads were doing what under normal circumstances they could have no choice but do The outlook for the railroads is seri oils Such a clamor was never before heard as has arisen for more cars Cot signees wont unload the cars sent 1 to them and there is no way to compel them to do so Indeed some Stat Railroad Commissionsquick to emulat Mr Roosevelts example forbid the railroads from imposing demurrag charges for delay The roads areI between Mr Roosevelt and the yea The gross earnings arc suffocatin I them the net earnings are steadily vanishing and behind all is the spectre of an intolerable usurpation which mean only bank ruptcy and disaster Communities are howling for coal farmer are distracted for means to get thei grain to market merchandise of all kinds encumbers the sidings and choke the railroad yards and only open weather palliates the immediate prospect But never mind the railroads They have earned and they fully deserve the punishment that is coming to them If the laws are not enforced we must make new laws But what we want to know is How does a paternal and illustrious ruler propose to provide for the unemployed millions who will presently ap peal to his omnipotence for succor New York Sun-

zephyr His might is in every tem est He dwells in the dark pavillion of eveij storm cloud and the heavens above us teem with His myraids of shining wit nessesWhen I was a young man in my teens and twenties the Cnristmas season wai the brightest of the year I used to take my fiddle under my arm at evening when the whippoorwill beganto sing and the stars began to twinkle and hit me away to the merry makings in the mountains We always gathered at the happy home of some jolly warmhearted old neighdor who threw open his doors to the young folks for an evening of mirth and pleasure The candy pulling and the country dance I Amid peals of laughter and shouts of merriment we pulled the taffy into golden hanks and the glad hours floated away on silver waves of music that rippled out like mountain brooks from under the bridge of my fiddle When the oldfashioned clock that stood on the floor struck twelve our carnival of candy and kisses and wheeling and whirling in the Old Virginia Reel bad reached the high tide of unspeakable bliss and unutterable joy The moonbeams danced in the air to the melody of the fiddle and the bow The drowsy hills awoke from their slumbers and clattered back in echoes the clatter of the dwindling shoe soles and gave back theher goal of the happy throng But when the clock struck two the sound of revelry Had died away the fiddle had fainted with exhaustion the lovers scattered into dark corners where each Romeo sat and held his sweethearts hand in silence until the chickens crowed for day and then we went home with the girls in the morning Outwits the Surgeon A complication of female troubles with catarrh of the stomach and bowels had reduced Mrs Thos S Austin of Leavenworth Ind to Buds a deplor able condition that her doctor advised an operation

is growing if it isnt growing it is dying This is as true of men as plants A creature equipped with muscle and mind must use both everyday or the musle will soften arid the mind will shrivel More than that when body and brain fail to grow the spirit with all its power over life and usefulness and happiness is the first element of man to signal distress So it is with old Franklin Farrel the head of a foundry and machine company in Ansonia Conn He is simply guarding his own happiness by griming his hands in his mill in spite of his sev entyeight years By the measure of money he has earned retirement for he is said to be a millionaire several times over By the measure of hard work he has surely earned it But he keeps to overalls and his machine shop just the same He has found out that work and work alone will keep him young andwell A news item in yesterdays paper says i that Mr Farrel tried once to retire Rheumatism seized him immediately If he had not found instant other oc cupation for both his mind and his body the disease would have made him its own until he died Instead he jumped back to his work got well and has kept well- Manymen and women who have done a serious work faithfully may reason ably hope for rest when they get as far as this foundryman But they wont find rest in idleness Neither will they find happiness The only things they will find are stagnation and hypochond riaRest is the kind of work which uses the faculties in a new way If you c nt find that kind of work the only thing that remains to do is to follow old Franklin Farrel and keep to your

Physicians Did No Good and Became Despondent Affected Parts Now Clear as Ever Alabama Ladys CURE BY THE- CUTICURA REMEDIES About four years ago I was afflicted with black splotches all over my faco and a few covering my body which produced severe itching irritation and which caused me a great deal of annoy anceand suffering tosuch an extent that I was forced to call in two of the leading physicians of my town After a thor ough examination of the dreaded com plaint they announced it to be skin eczema in its worst form They treated me for the same for the length of ono year but tho treatment did me no good Finally I became despondent and decided to discontinue their services Shortly afterwards my husband in read ing a copy of a weekly New York paper saw an advertisement of the Cuti cumtRemedies Ho purchased the en tire outfit and after using the contents of the first bottlo of Cuticura Resolvent in connection with the Cuticum Soap and Ointment the breaking out entirely stopped I continued the use of tho Cuticura Remedies for six months and after that every splotch was entirely I gone and the affected parts were left as clear as ever I have not felt a symptom of the eczema since which was three years ago The Cuticura Remedies not only cured me of that dreadful disease eczema but other complicated troubles as well and 1 have been the means of others teeing cured of the same disease by the Cuticura Remedies and I dont hesitate in saying that the Resolvent is the best blood medicine that the world has ever known Lizzie E Sledge 510 Jones A vc Oct 28 1905 Selma

two men were riding along Slop Lane with a cover over the wagon to keep off the light rain As the train was an hour late it is supposed that neither Mr Adkinson nor his grandson expected it ahd consequently crossed the track when the train going at a high rate df speed struck the wagon crushing it into a thousand pieces Mr Adkinson who was badly mangled was thrown in a ditch of water at the side of the rail road and would have been drowned had he not been killed The boy was thrown to the side of the track with his head badly cut and mangled The bodies of both men were put on the train and taken to the Union sta tion where they awaited the arrival of the coroner who ordered the bodies taken to the undertaking establishment for the inquest The boy was the son of Randolph Adkinson of Stanley The dead men had been in Owensboro shopping and were returning home with their wagon loaded with provisions when they wore struck The provisions of the wagon were spilled over the engine and

Kentuckys governor No individual collection so far as is known contains them all and none of the histories of the State have the full set It will be seen that the Evening Post in presenting the Home Library Wall Chart to its readers will be first to furnish to Kentuckians a full gallery ot tho sons of the Bluegrass whom she has honored with the highest office in the State two years have been spent in collecting this gallery and it is with l a sense of pardonable pride that the Evening Post points to the fact that it is now in a position to furnish the chart completeSome of the most interesting portraits at this time are those of the war gover nors Barinh Magoffin J F Robinson and Thomas B Bramlette The pictures are the best of these executives that have been printed The portraits of former governors now living are six in num ber and are those of Preston H Proctor Knott Simon Bolivar LeslieII James B McCreary William O Bradley and W S Taylor I In addition to the

Roosevelt There have been of late so few magazines contributions from Theodore Roosevelt that his essay on The Ancient Irish Sagas in the January Century will be the notable magazine feature of the month Mr Roosevelt ranks the wealth of poems and tales in the ancient Celtic and especially in the ancieut Frse munscriptsalready a matter of keen interest to scholars as a treasurehouse of lItature of much importance and value He desires toI see popularized this literaturea body of prose and poetry of great and well nig h unique Interest from every standpoint which in some respect can be matched only by the Norse sagas and which has some striking beauties the like of which are not to be found even in these Norse sagasand to this end urges that wherever possible chairs ol Celtic should be established in Americas leading universities J C Leyendeckers best illustrative work it is promised will accompany Mr Roosevelts orticlei i Oood Old Times In OregonI Return to the good old times wont
