Contest Keeping Eyes Open to tho Main Chance PROBABILITY OF A DEADLOCK Open Rumors of a Break From the Beckham Ranks Creates Engrossing Situation at the Opening of Ken tuokys General Assembly Frankfort Ky Jan 7For many reasons the present session of the Kentucky legislature promises to be a Memorable bne and Kentucky has had vgeveral memorable legislatures par flcularly In 1884 in 1896 and In 1900 Of course the chief interest centers In the race for United States senator and the possibility of a deadlock Governor BecKham is the nominee of the Democratic party for senator but there have been persistent rumors that ome of the Democratic senators and representatives will not vote for him The legislature in Joint ballot stands 73 Democrats to 65 Republicans the senate having 22 Democrats and 16 Republicans while the house has 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans If as many as four Democrats refuse to vote for Beckham a deadlock will re cult It has been frequently asserted in the newspapers that this Demo cratic legislator or that one would not support Beckham but so far no one has openly announced that he would tote against him On the Republican side it seems to be conceded that exGovernor W O Bradley will be nominated to oppose Beckham and some of tlv Republi can leaders have declared positively that the house would be organized by them and not by the Democrats If this betruo then a deadlock is sure to resultThe first vote for senator will not be taken till + Jan 21 although the legisla ture convenes on Jan 7 The senate theirreespectivowill meet in joint session in the house the following day to xatlfy the election if someone was elected or to take an other ballot If no one was elected the day before Each side Is warily watching the other now and neither sidedoingeany talking as to plans but each is willing to take advantage of any mjs take made by the others The de plorable feature of it all is that it is admost sure to bring about much bit terness It a deadlock comes There will be a number of contests for seats in the house filed by both Republicans and Democrats These will be fought over bitterly as the house is so close that one vote may decide the fate of every contestant for a seat for if one contestant is seated he will naturallyI vote with his party to unseat others y If one Democrat In the house re furies to vote with his party the house will be deadlocked and cannot be or inlzed till some other man deserts or jy deserter comes back In such an ent James E Stone chief clerk of e last house will preside u the w makes it his duty to call the Hue to order and preside till the eaker ia elected If a deadlock ms Mr Stone will preside from y to day till someone come over goes over and votes for the their fellow It all the talk

unequal div ision of population some of the districts having 12000 while others had 40000 The court went further and said the present districts were in re ality unconstitutionally made up but as tho elections in them had been held for so many years the act creating them would not now be declared unconstitutional because It would ho against puoiic policy It is always a hard fight to pass a satisfactory re districting bill even where one politi cal party has a big majority but It will be especially so this year because of tho almost even division ef the two parties In tho legislature As the present districts are considered to be to the advantage of tho Democrats It 1 Is presumed the Republicans will make the hardest fight to have new districts created that will give a more equali division of population It was expected two years ago that the present legislature would be able to hold its sessions in the handsome new statehouse but no provision hasI yet been made for furnishing the n rw building and making It habitable The building itself Is very near completion it being all under roof except a small part of the center dome and much of the Interior work Is completed It IIs expected that It will take another appropriation of 250000 to pay for fit ting up the new structure in proper style with desks fileboxes carpets furniture etc and the present legis lature will be asked to make the ap propriation for that purpose The to tal appropriations so far made forHhe new capitol amount to 1250000 which will complete it all but the fur nishings According to the estimate- of the states financial officers it will not be necessary to Increase the rate of taxation to complete the new build Ing as no increase was made when the other appropriations were made and especially as there is over a mil lion dollar balance in the state treasury now Yesterday was moving day at the statehouse all the new Republican offi cials taking charge the Democrats retiring In many of the offices where the work is necessarily complicated a number of the bid clerks will be re tamed for several months or until the new clerks get trained for the work ft Is expected however that in six months all the Democratic clerks will be replaced by Republicans The attorney general under the present law Is allowed no clerks or assistants and Is probably the hard estworked official In the statehouse A strong effort will be made this ses sion to have a law passed providing him with at least two assistants and a stenographer Governor Willson has been having a strenuous time since his Inauguration a month ago and what with office seekers nightriders and the com- Ing of the legislature he has not been treading the primrose path of dalliance The governor has some fads but they ar3 fads that are tempered with common sense For instance he says he will appoint no man to office who applies for It and simply signs the Initials of his first name That IBI J H Smith will not be considered at all but John H Smith will be He says he has quit talking politics now and Ila trying earnestly to be the gov ecnor for all the people and using ev ery means In his power to enforce the peoples laws that are on the statute booksMuch has been said about the governor being placed on the national ticket next year as a candidate for vice president but he positively for bids any discussion of tho subject He saya he has been elected to servo as governor for four years and If he llives he purposes to carry eut the contract made with the people last election day Probably the lIartlt1It the new governor will have to crack will be the settlement of the tobaoee situafeon and the arrest and conviction of the night riders who have been destroying tobacco warehouses in Hopkldsvllle and Russellvllle It Is the general belief that under the present lays it will be almost impossible to indict or convict the night riders because the membership of the tobacco associations is so large that it will be almost Impossi ble to get a jury that will not have several friends and fellowmembers of the nlgkt riders on It This being ttho case the present IceiUature will be asked to evolve a now law by that class ot lawbreakers whichII reached and pnnlshed Governor Will sons recommendations along this line in his message to the legislature are strong and to the point He seems to have set his heart on solving this question and is determined that the law shall be upheld and every mans property and life made secure from lawless groups of men who operate at night behind masks

all about It but in piano making the scale is the man who after nil else has been done imparts to the jMnno its soul I cannot tell you how they do it They do not know themselves and no man can teach another It Is born like all art The scales are very few and hard to get and we pay them hand some wages But they are as difficult to manage as the great tenors of grand opera and as sensitive as women Like all artists they are forever squabbling among themselves about little things and as you may guess jealousy is their besetting evil But I have not yet explained what the scale docs When a piano Is all strung and tuned and ready to leave the factory the scale sits down to It nil alone and screws it to pitch His ear Is so true his band so fine and his sense of time reasons for sound is so delicate and exquisite that when he has finished his work that yhlch was a mere box containing strings has be come a voice that can sing if you know bow to make it sing The scale has given it a soula

showing the condition of the States business as the complete transfer of tIle executive department is about to take place is a vindication of all of the claims made for the efficiency of tho Democratic adminis tration The amount to bo turned over by the outgoing Treasurer instead of a million and a quarter as predicted by Auditor Hager is nearly a million and a half The showing made by the management of the States penal institutions ought to be gratifying to the public as it is creditable to the Democratic officials The Demo cratic administration turns over the business of the State in firstclass condition in every respect and only gross negligence or dishonesty can prevent the proper conduct of affairs by the new officials The new administration inherits no financial difficulties from its pi edecessor The way for it has been made smooth It ought to bean easy task to keep the finances in gocd condition to maintain the efficient direction of the States institutions and to make the necessary provisions for those improvements demand ed by Kentuckys constant growth The good roads agitation ought to find encourage ment in the condition of the State Treasury With a surplus of nearly a million and a half with the new State Capitol practically paid for with no outstanding debt Kentucky is in position to give liberal State aid to county of road building and to make ample provision for the im of provement of her educational institutions These are two subjects of the greatest interest to the people They more directly affect the material development of the State than any other subject likely to engage the attention of the lawmakers Under tl e present con dition of things a lower tax rate would doubtless he wel come but the present rate is not burdensome andno doubt a majority of the people would prefer to see it maintained if the proceeds are devoted to the proper pur poses Without some increase in expenditures such as appropriations for road building and increased expendituresv for the improvement of the school system there ought to bo n reduction in the rate But it is not wise economy to neglect the opportunities now presented for substantial advance in matters that directly concern the material in terests of the people Money spent for roads and for ed ucation will be the best possible investment The return is certain and it will be in the end

obtained Then comes the most delicate part of the whole work The clay model or core as It Is technically called has to itsIsurface which fls may readily be imagined Is anything but easy especially If
