Tomb or Was Coffin Filled With Lead Is the Question to Be Decided London Dec 30The work of open Ing the grave of Thomas Charles Druce In Hlghgate cemetery to detor mine primarily whether the coffin con tains the body of a man or as has been asserted a roll of sheet lead weighing some 200 pounds was begun Sunday Incidentally the clearing up of this mystery will help materially the progress of the famous Druco case The threeton monument which marks the restingplace of the Druce family was removed by a score of workmen who were protected from public observation by a shed which had been erected around the burial spot All of those In attendance at the opening of the grave and the coffin have been sworn to secrecy so that the result of the Investigation will not be known until the experts give evi dence at the police court Herbert Druce the defendant in the now famous case Is charged with com mitting perjury by swearing that his father Thomas Charles Druce of tho Baker Street Bazar died Dec 28 1864 and that he saw the dead body placed In a coffin and burled in Highgate cemetery His nephew George Hoi ambly Druoe declares that this must be untrue because T C Druoe was in tact the fifth Duke of Portland who lived until 1679 That being so George Hollambly Druce claims that he himself being the senior descend ant in the male line is now the rjght tul heir to the Portland dukedom and to certain rich estates the Income of whloh is placed at 1000000 a year now hold by Lord Howard De Walden The opening of tho grave however will not give conclusive proof of the ilalm of George Hollambly Druce The fifth Duke of Portland and s man known as Thomas C Druce have t boon declared to be ono ana the same e person by a dozen wltnesi but par ticularly by Robert Caldwell of Now York who testified at length and In detail to this effect during the present trial Caldwell left London for Now York the middle of December Upon his arrival he was arrested at the re quest of the British authorities on a charge of perjury He Is now 111 at his homo on Staten Island Should he be brought to trial the evidence obtained from the opening of the coffin would do much to convict or clear him Herbert Druce opposed the opening of the grave on the ground that he did not wish to desecrate his fathers rooming on the whim of a person who ohose to make n claim to an estate he Is not Interested In and who has put forward a claim ho declares he knows to be untrue He was obliged finally however by the popular demand to put aside sentiment and consent to the exhumation for tho purpose as his

Green River Equity Warehouse Companys Proposition to Sell Break enridge County 1907 Crop to the American Tobacco Company is Accepted YAt a meeting of the Breckenridge County Tobacco Growers who desired to sell their 1907 crop at the courthouse on December 21 the proposition of Green River Equity Warehouse company to sell through their organization 1500000 pounds of red tobacco and 500000 of burley was accepted and 400000 pounds of tobacco was pledged in about an hour The proposition in short is this The Green River Equity warehouse Company a corporation of Daviess county organized andoperated by tobacco growers who control the stock of the cor poration made a proposition to our growers to sell to the Amor iicon Tobacco Company 2000000 pounds of Breckenridge County Said sale to be made along the same lines as the Davies 1907 crop Our Growers committee is permitted to choose the graders for the three delivering points Glcndeano Hardinsburg and Clovcrport Outside of the Graders there will be a Board of Appeal If the Company or any Grower feels aggrieved by the graders actions he may appeal to this Board The tobacco is to be graded by sample the red tobacco into five classes and the hurley into four at the following pricesRcdclass Nol825825No2S8 8No3 77No4GG and No5550 and 550 all trash at 250 Burleyclass No1 1111 and trash 5No 21010 and trash f5No399 und trash 4No4 750 i750 and trash E3 Paid for when weighed and graded at the factory For its services the said corporation is to rcciove one per cent which pays graders and all expense to growers The American Tobacco Company by its agent in the Green River Leaf Department Mr Englehardagreed to the above terms and stipulations subject to the of the New York office This New York office at this time afternoon had not advised tlio committee of its approval the sale It is understood that certain buyers in the county ore endeavoring to coldwater the proposition but the committee believes tlnttlteaeal will go through The committee by direction of proper authorities circulated pledges for a few days Mr Englehard suggested that he would not pledge too much The contracts were promptly called in A Committee composed of Herbert M Beard Frank Ruppert Nolte Pate Dr J 11 Hart Tom Blaine and H Dell Moorman recommended the acceptance = of the proposition as made They believed in it then and believe in it I now as the best thing for all growers however they do not desire any man to pledge his tobacco except of his own free will After the fullcorrespondence between this committee and the American Tobacco Co and the warehouse Co having been read the growers who desire ed to sell their 1907 crop of tobacco voted more than 150 to 2 to accept the propositionA why the Committee recommended the proposition if the tobacco is sold under this contract after deducting from the Daviess county prices the cost of transportation to Owensboro and other necessary expenses it will cost the company about the mme the expectrit it will bring the largest round price realized on our countys tobacco for many years Every man who sells under this contract is eligible to membership in the organization that is selling this tobacco After this year they propose to sell our farmers stock and permit some of them to become directors in the corporation In other words they propose to extend their corporation over Davies Ohio Mc Lean Hancock and Breckcnridgo counties They have a commodious cannotimum expense and thus by their organization control largely the pro duction and price of Green river tobacco Thus may be contrasted as business propositions the present plan of pooling etc and the proposed plan where the management is by bonded oflisiuls of a cor poration the stockholders and directors of which are among the very best business men chosen from tobacco growers Organization is preserved by the proposed plan Good prices are maintained and ready cash is brought to a com munity that needs it now and may need it much worse It seems all growers have concluded in view of the fact that they have two crops = tied up and the further fact that our merchants have about exhausted the extension of their credit that they must yell their 1907 crop This committee did all in its power to procure a better offer it failed If the company turns down this proposition made by its representa five do any growers think they will pay more than they have in it of offered 1 Is it not better to have three places to deliver than two t- iThe leaders of the Louisville warehouse faction after preaching or getsany money from company selling or dumping outside of this proposition to you who are reasonable explain their philoso phy or tho consistency of their position This committee started in on to serve the combined tobacco growers of our county regardless of any man or mens private interests and their report voices the retl suits of a careful investigation What is going to become of the lit organizattion How will you curtail your acreage if there is to be no organi of zation Is it the desire of our growers or their alleged lenders to destroy in a day what years have accomplished Are you going to cut each others throats We think not Tobacco pooling is foolish when it can be sold at the factory door You are offered 825 at the top r Add U the cost of pooling and you will have to sell it for 1225 to equal this offer besides waiting a year If the committees in charge of the 1905 and 190G tobacco have had offers why have they not sold the tobacco If they have not why and how did all the reports get out If they could have sold it for more than they can now why have they paid thousands of the peoples money to the Louisville Warehouse Company 1 If there is any constitutional prohibition In has there not been tine to remedy it If tho tobacco was contracted to be put up properly why is it damaged 1 This article is longer than I intended to make it but I desire the improbabletcan face all the conditions for the present and for the future for the big grower and the little one for all factions and produce a better proposition at a better time our hats are off to him Lets all bo asryou would have them It is the duty of every tobacco raiser to come to the A S of E meeting on Monday next A report from the com pany will be here by that time and all members of the American So

South Farm Magazine of Baltimore for January This being so it follows that the public interest demands justice if not liberal treatmentof the railroads by the people by Legislature and Congress How is this The liberality of the past has been supplanted by radical regula tions State and national Revenue is restricted and reduced on the one hand and taxation and penalties increased op the other Every article of commerce has increased in value save one and that is the only thing the railroads have to sell transportation The railroads the most necessary and helpful of all the agencies of commerce are alone denied a comparative share of the recent general and extraordinary prosperity Banks manufacturers merchants ect can make all the profit possible but the railroads are restricted by various forms of taxation and regulation and penalties to comparatively small dividends though the risk incurred in their business is greater than in arty other business If the legislation enacted in some of the States was in full force the railroads would go bankrupt in those States Fortunately the courts are intervening to stay threatened calamities which should they finally fall will involve all other interests more or less The embarrassment now wide spread is but a foretaste of the calami ties threatened and certain unless there is sane reaction It depends upon the pill you take DeWitts Little

thorough investigation of the navy department The resignation of Rear Admiral Brownson as chief of the bu reau of navigation serves to empha size the need of a general reorganiza tion of the department While many reasons for Brownsons resignation are given the fact is that he tired of the constant friction between the several bureaus His closest friends say that no one thing precipitated the resigna tionPersons who know something of the conditions In the department believe It would be a good thing for congress to give theentire department an over hauling wit the view of adopting a reorganization plan of some sort The belief Is widespread that the depart ment is wasting an enormous sum of money annually The seven bureaus are In a quarrel constantly The sec retary of the navy Is

NEW CHINATOWN How It Sprang Up In Oakland After the San Francisco Earthquake Previously to April 18 1000 the number of Chinese living In Oakland Cat was comparatively small A few blocks really comprised what was known as Chinatown But the earthquake and the fire In San Francisco changed conditions In the twinkling of an eye In the mad flight to a place of safety says the Arena the Chinese crossed to Oakland in droves There they have elected to stay Jacks beanstalk has found a parallel In the rapidity of the growth of the new Chinatown This new section now includes a much larger area than that formerly occupied by the Chinese quarter In old San Francisco though It can never be so picturesque The streets in Oak land are wide and level whereas in San Francisco they were narrow hilly and orientally dirty but they were at tractive and interesting to artist and tourist the world over The houses on the streets now occu pied by the Chinese In Oakland were mostly small and old and were of but little value before the Influx of the Chinese but have risen enormously In price The Chinaman however has along head and ways that are peculiar when it cornea to business His method has been to go to the owner of a piece of property in the neighborhood and buy It at any price asked This would condemn the whole block which he and his associates would then buy at their own price UTOPIA FOR

Mrs Russell Sage has been asked to Supply 50000 to solve the tramp prob lem In America and according to sev eral prominent workers In this socio logical line has already supplied enough money to begin the organiza tion of a national committee of 100 to prepare for the work says the New York American Orlando P Lewis superintendent of the Association For the Improvement of the Condition of the Poor of New York Benjamin C Marsh and B L ReItman both prominent writers upon the subject of tramp life and David Bressler are among the New Yorkers who will be on the committee of which Mr Lewis Is secretary Mrs Sage is said to have become In tensely interested In tho tramp prob lem and to have expressed strong opine ions that the tramp as an Institution can easily be done away with In the United States She has consulted with several of the men who are regarded as authorities on the question They have insisted that the problem can only be handled as a national affair and that view of the situation Is said to have met with Mrs Sages approval Mr Lewis stated recently that he understood that the man at the head of this work is acting under the orders of Mrs Sage Inquiry is also being carried on into the conditions of the tenement houses and cheap hotels fre quented by tramps and a series of recommendations are being drawn up for consideration by the national com mitteeAmong the plans of the committee of 100 are the establishment of free state employment bureaus and inn sistence upon terms in prison at hard labor of those convicted for a second time of vagrancy Dr Benjamin L Reitman a Chi cago physician who proudly styles himself king of the tramps detailed the efforts which are being made to In vest the Income from the Sage millions to alleviate the sufferings of society from tramps He said I know about 50000 has been appropri ated by tho Sago foundation to the study of the tramp question From what I have learned through correspondence with those who are working on the project It Is planned to spend the money through sci entists in the problem and try and allevi ate not only the sufferings of society but of the tramp himself The plan Is to make a comprehensive Investigation of the tramp and vagrancy question and form a national commission to handle the matterPlans have about been completed to select a committee of a hundred experts In this subject and allow them to strive through legislation and other ways to get rid of the tramp The commission will try to get at the bottom of the trouble that causes tho tramp The plan to copy the Swiss Idea and found colonies whore this sort of boys and men will have to go to work Is the one that I feel will be adopted In New York From what I can gather there Is a sentiment In favor of this legislation and n bill to provide such a colony will undoubtedly be Introduced at the next session of the state legisla ture BURBANK ON CACTUS EATING Thornless Variety Producer Highly Pleased With Doctors Diet Test Luther

two years with 100 Rhode Island Red hens Rhode Island Reds are comparatively new chicken having only been admitted to the Standard by the American Poultry Associdtion in Feb 1904 but as a result of the experiments conducted at this station we have no hesitation in saying that they have more good practical points combined with fewer undesirable qualities than any other chicken They are Boilers at seven weeks Fryers at nine weeks Layers at twenty weeks When full grown Rhode Island Red hens average 7 to 9 pounds each and cocks nine to thirteen pounds They are big red birds with red eyes brown beaks and smooth yellow legs The males are a rich cherry red and the hens are a lighter shade of red They have the lay- Ing qualities of the Leghorn the vItality of the Malay Game and the heavy coat of feathers percullar to th Cochin but with bare legs Their color floes not show soil They are a desireablo table fowel at any agi having oblong bodies wide deep full plump breasts and yellow skin They mature early are very hardy and will stand severs winters and continued lay+ ing They are good hustlers and bipjtjjv hunters and require less feed iMh common chickens They lay big brom eggs are enthusiastic setters and excellent mothers although at the saiwe time they are eaisly broken from silting when desired Theyare free fron ditse and with their wonderful laing qualities especially in the winter are the idetil farmers fowl The census statistics bf 1900 show the average yield per hen throughout the United States is only l2p eggs annually The experiments atj this station have shown conclusively that Rhode Island Reds can be dependedon to lav from 190 to 210 eggs per hen arid as they cost no more to raise than the old varieties it would seem to be a logical conclusion that poultry raisers would do well to devote their attention to this wonderful new chicken A small folder accurately describing RhodeJIsland Reds and giving much good advice as to raising housing feeding
