Special Correspondent A KENTUCKY WONDEROF WONDERS Frankfort Ky Jan 15It is an absolute fact that two Kentuckians in the same week have done the unheard of thing of declining an office with a salary of 2600 per year and traveling expenses attached to It Whether this Is a sign of a long cold winter ar earthquake or some other dreadful happening is not known of course but something else unusual is bound to happen for such strange events never cdme singly C M Barrett of Ohio county and Stanley Mllward of Lexington both claimed the state fire marshals Job but Barrett was appointed Before he went to work how ever he found ho might be unjustly criticised In his work because he is the president of the National Society of Equity and that society has a tobacco branch and the fire marshal would have to investigate the burning of tobacco barns and warehouses by the night riders some of whom are supposed to be members of the Society of Equity Then the place was offered to Mr Milward who had been turned down at first and wonder of wonders Mr Milward declined it Just think of a Kentuckian declining a good office like that It is dollars to doughnuts though that the third man to whom it is offered will take it and freeze to that twentyfive hundred per like a duck to a doughpile The first bill introduced in the pres ent legislature was one to repeal the dogtax law passed two years ago It was introduced by Senator Smith of Knott county and the present senti mont of the legislature indicates its passage The doglaw proved both unpopular i and ineffective Nearly every man that owned a dog has blasted the law and the assessors almost made it Ineffective by tailing to list the dogs for taxation For instance in one county with a population of 20000 probably 2800 dogs would be listed and in an adjoining county with the same population and apparently as many dogs only 700 would be listed 1 r A legislative committee will proba ijly investigate every phase of the tobacco troubles in Kentucky as Sena tor Newman of Woodford has introduced a resolution providing for a committee of three senators and four representatives to do the investigating The resolution which will undoubted ly be adopted says Said committee prevailingfnfcanlzatlon of the Tobacco Trust the traditions prevailing after its organ zation and before the organliatlon of the various tobacco societies the con 41Uons since and in every way try to reach a knowledge of the situation such as will enable this General As sembly to enact such laws as will pro a ouraeoIn1l1tsh11 also ascertain whether the Wocalled tobacco trust has t the right to do business In this state when pursuing the methods It has fol lowed fer several years It shall also ascertain whether any of our statutes are not enforced by the various om err of the commonwealth It Mall make investigation ef whether it is legal and practicall to employ con rots in the manufacture of plug and twist tobaoco This Is a sweeping resolution and the committee will have an enormous Joust of work to do if it accom yUtfaM anything Governor Willsoti is t working assiduously to suppress the Might riders but they keep bobbing np here and there in various parts of the state and burning tobacco ware houses Soldiers are being stationed in suspected towns and Gatling guns are being placed in readiness to repel expected attacks by the night riders There must be some cause for all this treuble somebody has been doing wroag somewhere and as a result the night riders are doing wrong now Tie tobacco growers feel that a crisis has arrived with them and that it is ci as much moment to them as throw 11 g the tea overboard in Boston harbor Jrer a hundred years ago was to the c American colonists r Maybe this legislative committee ay find the seat ot the trouble If overproduction has caused the low prices of tobacco the remedy is to plant no crop this year If the tobac co trust has forced the low prices to trustyt should be fined as Chief

who denied the existence of genii once bought u mule and took It home When per forming his evening ablutions he saw the mule enter a jug and this so scared him that he ran shouting to the neighbors and told them what he had seen They thinking him mad endeavored to appease him but all In vain He vociferated more and more so that the authorities sent him to the mad house When the doctor came to see him he repeated the account of what he had seen the doctor or dered him to be detained He contin ued upon each visit of the doctor to repeat his statement uutll his friends succeeded in him that If lie wished to regain his freedom be must recant This he did and the doctor set him at liberty to the great Joy of his family and friends On tanking his ab lutions as before he again saw mule this time peeping out of the but on this occasion ho contented self with to the mule Oh yes I see you well enough but who would believe me And I have had enough of the roadhouse Needless to say that the

snails are cbusldered a table luxury In several countries nobody seems to wax ecstatic over slugs If we except the beehe de mer or sea slug over which as prepared In the far east some writers have

arranged their code One of these wont to New York with one snail and the other to Paris with the second When the gentlemen In either capital wished to communicate with his friend nt an hour agreed

contained an ac count of the performance which caused much comment One German paper in reproducing excerpts from the remark able criticism says in reading it we I could not quite determine whether the writer was a rogue or one of the Mark Twain school who would enter the most sacred realms of culture with savage freedom The opera says the critic furnished much amusement especially the evolutions of the merry Rhein daughters Their tricks were charming and if the orchestra hud played more appropriate music the effect would have been perfect From what we had heard we expected better music Certain purtsthe most tuneful ouits were reminiscent of Men delssohn and this originality seemed natural to us because we knew tin when Wagner was tue child prodigy in Lelpslc Felix Mendelssohn directed the

Paget line of JDtiUOOOO would look like 30 centsAn earnest effort will be mad dir Ing the season to procure or take stops to procure more equitable system r4 taxation for tho whole state Looking to this end the revenue and taxation committee of the Stato Development association has prepared a bill which proposes an amendment to Section 171 of the constitution which will enable some future legislature to adopt a sys tem of what Is termed expensive tax ntlon which will adapt itself to tin business conditions and changing sit nations of all classes of property In the state Of course the amendment will have to be voted on by the people next November and It Is worded as follows The general assembly shall provide hy law an annual tax which with other resources shall be suffi dent to defray the estimated expenses of the commonwealth for each year Taxes shall be levied and collected for public purposes only and shall be sin form upon all property of the same qlass subject to taxation within the territorial limits of the authority levI ing the tax and all taxes shall be lev led and collected by general warrants The power vested in the general as sembly to provide for taxation based on income license and franchise may be so exercised that such taxes maybe in addition to or in lieu of ad valorem taxation upon such personal i theiauthority levying the tax In the lat ter event such personal property shall i allitaxes based on income license or fran ohlBe shall be uniform on the same class of subjects within the territorial limits of the authority levying the tax The general assembly shall have pow er to divide property into two classes and to determine what class of prop erty shall lit subject to state taxation and what class or classes of property shall be subject to local taxation This amendment if adopted may lead to a system of taxation now in operation in Pennsylvania where farm lands are not taxed at all for state purposes Kentucky has had more trouble and more legal controversies over the tax question than her sister states in tho past decade and it is he lieved this amendment to the consti tution If adopted will solve the problem and require each class of property to bear Its proper proportion of the burden of taxation i CThe expected deadlock over the or ganization or the house of representa tives did not materialize and every thing went through with smooth sail Ing all the Democratic caucus nom iness being elected by a strict party vote Now the question naturally arises what effect will this have on the senatorial vote ExGovernor Bccklmm and exGovernor Bradley are respectively the nomlneas of the Dem ocratic and Republican parties for United States senator and the legisla RepubBeansdesert necklmm else he will be elect ed on the first ballot Beckham work oca say they are absolutely confident and tfave no fear of the result Brad leys friends say four or more Demo orate will not vote for Beckham anl the consequent deadlock will result in the election of Bradley No one knows really what to expect but it Is certain that if Beckham does not win onthe first ballot a most exciting session of the legislature will follow and much needed legislation will bo neglected S An Important bill that will be Intro duced this session will be the one pro viding a new method of holding state primary elections It will provide that both political parties must nominate all candidates for state offices on the same day and that day shall be gen registration every voter in city town and country must register and the registration officers must also serve as primary elec lion officers thus saving the expense of three sets of officers The bill fur ther paythethus giving a poor man a chance to make a race without having to borrowI enough money to put up his entrance fee The state now pays the expenses IsIi contended that the additional expense would not be great enough to offset the merits of such a bill A bill will be introduced this week to Increase the annual appropriation for the Kentucky Childrens Home So oloty from 15000 to 30000 Super intendent Selion of the home will oome to Frankfort to explain to the legislature the necessity for the In crease This is one of the most wor thy charities to which the state contributes and hundreds of poor chil dren are cared for and provided with good hornet in respectable families every year The first day the senate met former Lieutenant Governor Thorne walked Into the chamber and was given a most flattering reception in fact It amounted to an ovation and Colonel Torne was much affected by It He made one of his characteristic humor ous speeches and said he knew of but one story that fitted the occasion He said In a certain community In an other state it Is the custom after the engagement of a young couple is an nounced at the church for the bride tobe to sit In the lap of the groomto be the first night he calls On one oc casion a small man was engaged to a twohundredpound girl After the en gagement was announced he called on her and according to the custom she sat in his lap He never complained but along about 11 oclock she suddenly asked Why George dear arent you tired No he replied About 9 oclock 1 was tired but now I am paralyzed I am paralyzed by this reception gentlemen conclude- Thorne He caused a big laugh whon he
