been damaged by the overflow as the waters have not recededsufficient to ascertain the disastrous effects At present the concen sus of opinion among farmers is that enorImousThe farmers claim that the mild winter preceding the flood had so far advanced the crop that the stalks were probably broken and the sediment has covered the plant and smothered iit This is only surmise however as noth ing definite regarding the condition of the submerged crop can be learned for the present On the other hand it is stated that if the plants arc not too far advanced in growth and the receding of the waters should be immediately followed by a warm rain that he overflow will be a blessing Farmers say they have known in stances when an overflow was a God send to the growing wheat but at other times the effect has been just the re verse SNOW A BLESSING TO WHEAT Young Plants Are As Snug As a Bug In a Rug The snow beat the cold wave here jnst in time to cover the young wheat plants and protect them

Wagons Toted It Across Country Hawesville got her booze all right Hawesville came near having a booze o famine last week caused by the flood catastrophebyGood old Cloverport with all her faults Hawesville loves her still The rivers may rise so the boats cant run the rains may washout the railway tracks Lncle Sam may not be able to have his mails transferred and passenger and freight traffic may be at a standstill but Hawesville must have her boozeand she got it What though the boats ceased to ply and the trains did not run wasnt Hawesville thirsty for a dram and there were horses that could pall and wagons to tote and roads to haul it over Well hat is the way Hawosville got her boozeCloverport had the booze and Hawes ville had the thirst and when the local supply of the stuff that paints mens noses gave out and the floods stopped railroad and boat traffic some enterprising and accommodating saloonkeeper had an idea it could be toted in wagons across the country from Cloverport And Hawesville got her booze But let it be said to Hawesvilles cred it that she does not endorse the liquor traffic as was shown in the local option election last fall when Hawesville and Hancock county went dry It was just some fellows who wanted to put in full time during the last days of the saloon Anyhow Hawesville got her booze ONCE INLAND TOWN NOW ON 01110 RIVER Owensboro Ky Jan

Among These but Not Such Undertakings as the Telegraph the Telephone the Street Cars or Gas and Electric LightingTrue Nature of a Public Franchise By ARTHUR WILLIAMS President National Electric Light associa Flan Some things arc so essentially of a governmental nature that It would be fatuous to consider them from the standpoint of private ownership Among these are the collection of cus toms tho maintenance and direction of tho army and navy and the police pow er In others It Is the end rather than the means that should be sought and municipal and private ownership are often on equal terms without the viola tlon qf any economic principle The maintenance of public highways and sewers is usually n public fuuc tlon but the country abounds In exam plea every whit as satisfactory of prl vote ownership and operation With water the Importance to the commuul ty lies not In Its ownership whether public or private but rather In Its qual Ity quantity anti price Many of the most satisfactory waterworks of this country and Europe are owned pri vately Beyond these there Is n class of pub He utilities which experience has shown should lie exclusively within the domain of private enterprise The telegraph tel ephone transportation gas nnd electric light undertakings offer examples The ownership of these by the community Is advocated by some on the ground that they are necessities of modern life by others because they partake of the nature of monopoly It does not appear that either Is a sufficient rea son These are facilities and conven fences not necessities The latter consist of simple dwellings food raiment nnd means of warmth In winter It our necessities are to be municipalized we should begin with the butcher gro eel baker and coal dealer whose percentage of profits tar exceeds that of any of the corporations In the so called public service Monopoly regulated monopoly Is not necessarily opposed to the public Interest It Is advantageous to all to have one telephone

merely permits a public service corporation to share with oth ers the use of the streets for the de livery to Its customers of the commod- Ity it suppliesa right that is enjoy ed by every other Industry The dif terence Is merely one of method Were electricity delivered In storage bat teries and gas In tanks conceivable ways no franchise would be required Instead of using horses and wagons which blockade the streets and make street cleaning a problem deliveries are made beneath the surface without dirt noise or other objectionable tea taresIt Is through the exercise of this right that we hear of the confiscation of public property Yet the public has not parted with Its title to the streets nor Its right to occupy them for any purpose or In say manner It may desire It has simply permitted n sere ice company to become a tenant for which In the form of franchise and other taxes the company pays a high rent SubMantlnlly the city Is the landlord possessing the power of arbi trarily determining In the form of these taxes what rent It shall receive And this rent lessens proportionately the individual taxation Moodys Magazine Typical Case of City Bookkeeping The authorities of Lakewood 0 have charged the city 55 a year for the street lights supplied by the municipal plant After looking at their tax bills some of the citizens came to the conclusion that this sum did not represent all the cost nnd called in a firm of expert accountants who ascertained that the actual anneal cost per arc had been 12050 for the seven years the plant had been Id operation although the

dry goodsturniture hardware implement harness drug and general stores besides hotels restaurantsbroom fact rycigar factory creamery and numerous other factories and stores and also grain buyers fruit and produce shippers livestock buyers etc Everyone around this community ia prosperous for each is buying and selling or making and selling some thing to the others and the wants of all are easily supplied at home A craze strikes this community t buy of some big catalogue house located in some other part of the country All1 those who are engaged in business iin the little city buy from the mail orde house everything not carried in their ownstoresHow would it take before this little city would be entirely abandoned with no business its storeo closed for lackof patronage the factories because I there were no retail stores to sell their products the grain buyers because they did not have any other business to help support them during the months when there was little grain to handle the pro duce buyer because he had handled proI rice for nothingin connection with his JT business and could not continuing shipments on the same terms e miller because the big mail order house would not buy his flour etc This is exactly what would happen in every community if the mail order houses could have their way entirely get the parcels post use it with the rural delivery make the government which is the people pay most of their delivery charges if all of the people patronized them Every line of business excepting farming would be wiped out with the exception of the mail order house and I the factories it bought from Most of the factories would go because there WAS nc place to sell their goods whet the mail order house refused to buy Does the picture look like prosper ity Every consumer who refuses t buy at home and sends his mcney out u of his community is helping to bring about such a condition but evident t does not realize it Retailers must n bring them to realize what they are

well under way Progress has been made In the task of selecting jurors each talesman being carefully examined when called before court The examination of each talesman wasI followed with the keenest Interest as It was thought the line of questioning by the attorneys for Thaw would de velop the character of the defense they are to set up There was disappointment in this respect The de fendants counsel seemed perfectly willing to accept any proposed juror who satisfactorily answered the ques tlons put by District Attorney Jerome who personally conducted the exam JnatJops The defense

your conclusion any Imaginary form of Insanity you might have in mind or that might be suggested to you to the exclusion of the law as It will be laid down to you by the court Again the talesmen said

fate leaning well forward and holding his hand to his ear to catch Tery word that might fall from the lips of the talesmen Again he would seem listless and his eyes deep sot and having something of a stare roved about the courtroom His face was pallid doubtless due to his seven months confinement In the Tombs Thaw is fully six feet In height and Is quite thin He wore a dark blue sack suit and had

House commit tees this week This was accomplished by Representative Sherley who declined I an assignment to the Judiciary Com mittee by the Speaker This committee is one of the most important in the House and in personnel probably is the most influential To be appointed to it is considered not only a distinguished honor but a recognition of the candi dates legal attainments Mr Sherley declined the honor emphatically and the reason for doing was given by Minor ity Leader Williams who declared it was done because Mr Sherley did not care for a position for which the De mocracy did not recommend him and that he was not anxious to pose as a seeker after political charity by accepting crumbs falling from the Speakers table President Roosevelt will press the button at the White House that will set in motion the machinery of the Greater Louisville Exposition to be held from March 18 to 30 This promise was ob tained at the White House this week when Senator McCreary introduced Fred Levy vice president of the Expo sition Mr Levy remarked that the management would pay all the expenses of the coming exposition which led Mr Roosevelt to reply humorously that this certainly was an innovation in exposi tions Sleeping uneasily irj the Committee on Rivers and Harbors is the resolution offered last week by Representative Morrell of Pennsylvania that the Con gress of the United States make a satis factory annual appropriation for the development of waterways placing the appropriation on the same scale as the bills passed each session tor the army and navy The resolution is sleeping uneasily from the fact that congressmen from every section of the country are en deavoring to prod it out for a vote While no Congress can pledge a succeed ing one nevertheless the adoption of such a resolution will go a long way toward shaping future legislation The resolution is one thtt long has been championed by the National Rivers and Harbors Congress that for the last five years ha worked to bring to the atten tion of the country the necessity for de veloping a new system of transportation The present failure of the railroads to keep pace with the wonderful commercial development of the country has fur nished an added reason why this resolu tion should go through at this time The question has the hearty endorsement of President Roosevelt and all the leaders of the national administration and with snch powerful backing it is generally believed that in the future whether the resolution is adopted or not the Administration will see to It that this work of great internal improvement is pushed forward steadily 4 A convention of vast importance to the business interests of the United States and its object is to develop further the foreign trade of the country As an auxiliary to the main convention the National Board of Trade is holding its 37th annual meeting A peculiar fact is that prominent business men from throughout the entire country attend ing the conventions as delegates pro fess to see in the present commercial unrest the greatest menace to existing prosperity In his address to the Na tional Board of Trade President Frank D La Lanne of Philadelpnia made a powerful plea for the establishment of a better feeling and better understanding between corporate interests and labor He declared that this was essential for the betterment of both A number of other speakers pointed out that the present unrest was certain to precipitate business stagnation not business dis aster were something not done to bring the American people to their senses All of the speakers deplored the tenden cy of the general public to attack all corporate interests irrespective of whether they were honestly conducted or not Both conventions are working to the same end and their hope is that the United States will yet lead the world in foreign markets Those who declare that the Pa ama hat is as much a thing of the past as the oldfashioned toddy are con juted by the letter of Consul Demers of Barranquilla Colombia just made pub lic by the Department of Commerce and Labor Consul Demeres declares that not less than 400000 worth of these hats were exported from Colombia last year the industry ranking in Importance with coffee gold hides cattle tobacco and rubber These hats are not made in factories but are turned out by the peasant women in their homes the women trading them at the stores for household necessaries If is any sat isfaction to the man who pays 1250 for a hat that costs 3 in the Central American republic he may like to know that the hats are made from the fibre of the palm known locally as jipajapa the name of which is pronounced by the benighted heathen of those parts as hippyhappy Barranquilla sent her first Panama hat to the United States in 1899 since which time the trade has grown enormously and is likely to con tinue to increase according to Consul fell in Washington this week This statement may not create any wild excitement in the West but a fall of the beautiful In the District of Colum bia is a decided curiosity Washington ians do not take kindly to snow and the exodus from the slushy streets of the capital was prompt A number of so ciety people believing that winter has really set in are preparing to seek the balmy climate of Florida while others have already gone to Hot Springs Va where they have joined the Washington colony in the Homestead Hotel at that place It is not unlikely that these birds of passage scarcely will have spread their pinions for the Southern flight before Washington
