may be the one thing that will cause an election There are several members of the legislature who are reputed to be moro strongly Interested in preventing the passage of the bill extending the county unit law to very county in the state than in the election of a senator or In any other legislation If the Democrats or a iI 1 j r t GOV AUGUSTUS WILLSON majority of them try to pass this bill then it is asserted that these liquor members will vote for and elect the Republican nominee for senator If the Republicans vote and work for the county unit bill then these liquor men will not vote for the Republican nomi nee The liquor men seem to hold the balance of power and want to use It toI further their Interests They are opposed to Beckham because of his temperance views but they do not want to

Frankfort S R Senator Hubble of Lincoln county has Introduced a bill In the senate which requires all legal reserve life Insurance cqmpanles doing business din Kentucky to Invest 80 per cent of the reserve on all outstanding policies Issued In Kentucky In Kentucky secu rides such as state county or city bonds mortgages on real estate and mortgages on tobacco that Is pooled by some responsible organization which Is operated In the Interest of the to bacco growers The primary object of the bill Is of course to prevent the enormous reserve funds of the big In surance companies from being held and Invested In New York alone The Kentucky legislature has no control of theso Insurance companies it Is true but It can pass a law to the effect that no company can do business In Kentucky unless It Invests a part of the money It earns from Kentucky policy holders In Kentucky securities This same bill with the tobacco feature left out was Introduced In the legislature two years ago but the Influence of the Insurance companies smothered It It will be quite a feather In Senator Hub bles cap If he can put his bill through and thus help the tobacco raisers bring tho tobacco trust to terms 5 Judging from the number of bills In troduced the members of this legisla ture are anxious to do something for both the living and dead soldiers Senator Renaker has offered a bill pro viding for a pension of 125 per year to all disabled and indigent Confed erate soldiers and Senator Hogan of fered one amending the law governing the Confederate Home so that a Con efderate soldier who is entitled to be come an inmate of the home may if he chooses remain with his family and draw the amount for his support that would be paid for his maintenance at the home The bill to appropriate 25000 for a monument or memorial to the Confederate and Union soldiers nt the Vicksburg National park Vicks burg Miss has already been approv ed by the senate committee and will likely pass without any serious oppo sition Tim Is considered a small I amount when compared with the 200 ji 000 appropriated for the same purpose by Illinois 200000 by Iowa 100000 by little Rhode Island and similar amounts by many other states Ken tucky was represented by twelve regi ments at the siege of Vicksburg In cluding both the Union and Confeder ate forces and she should not lag behind the other states In paying fitting tribute to her brave sons that fell on that famous battle groundS Several bills have been introduced this session to make eight hours a legal days work for several different classes of laboring men but the legis lature itself has much shorter hours than that As a matter of fact the legislature does not learn how to work till the last three weeks of a session For the biggest part of the term they

her thoughts outstripping her errs+ nt feet but It seemed that neither her thoughts nor her steps were loading her toward the neglected gentleman within for presently slue found herself at the breezy veranda door looking rather fixedly at the stars The stars shining Impartially upon the just and the unjust illuminated the person of Siward who sat alone rather limply one knee crossed above the other He looked up by chance und seeing her stir gazing in the doorway straightened out and rose to his feetAware of him apparently for the first time she stopped across the threshold meeting his advance halfway Would you care to go down to the rocks he asked The surf is ter rific Nol dent think I care They stood listening a moment to the stupendous roar A storm somewhere at sea ho concludedIs 4 flne the surf Very fine and very relentless ho laughed It Is an unfriendly crea ture the semi you know She had begun to move toward the cliffs lIe fell into step beside her They spoke little a word now and thenThe perfume of the mounting sea sat urated the night with wild fragrance Dew lay heavy on the lawns She lifted her skirts enough to clear the grass heedless that Iher silk shod feet were now soaking Then at the cliff edge as she looked down Into thn white fury of the surf the stunning crash of the ocean saluted her For a loug while they watched in si lence Once she leaned a trifle too far over the starlit gulf and recoiling in voluntarily steadied herself on his nnn I suppose she said no swimmer could endure that battering Not long Would there be no chance Not one She bent farther outward fascinat ed stirred by the plendld frenzy of the breakers lthlnk he began quietly then a firm hand fell over her lleft hand I She found herself drawn back and half encir cled by his arm she found her self drawn back Neither spoke Two things she was coolly aware ofthat urged drawn by some thing subtly Ir resistible she had leaned too far out from the cliff and would have leaned far ther hind he not taken matters In to his own keep lug without apology Was I In any actual danger she asked curiously I think not But It was too much responsibility for me I see Any time I wish to break my neck I am to please do it alone in futureExactly if you dont mind he said smiling They turned shoulder to shoulder walking bok through the drenched herbageThat she said Impulsively is not what I salt a few moments ago to a womanWhat did you say a few moments ago to a woman I said Mr Slward that I would not leave IIII certain man to go to the devil alone Do you know any man who is go- Ing to the devil Do you she asked letting herself go swinging out upon a tide of Intimacy she had never dreamed of risking nor hail she the slightest Idea whither the current would carry her They had stopped on the lawn ankle deep In wet grass the stars overhead sparkling magnificently and In their ears the outcrash of the sea You mean me he concluded Do I He looked up Into the lovely face Her eyes were very sweet very clear clear with excitement but very friendly Let us sit here on the steps a little while will you she asked So he found a place beside her one step lower and she leaned forward elbows on knees rounded white chin in her palms the starlight giving her bare arms and shoulders n marble luster and tinting her eyes a deeper amethystAnd innocently untethered mis sion and all she laid her heart quite bare one chapter of it And like oth er women errant who believe In time influence of their sex individually and collectively she began wrong by tell Ing him of her engagement perhaps tc emphasize her pure disinterestedness in a crusade for principle only So it was when she was most elo quent most earnestly inspired nay in the very midst of a plea for sweet ness and light and smple

face a sullen shad ow land fallen flickering not yet set tled lie would not for anything on earth have talked freely to the woman destined to be Quarriers wife Ho had talked oo much anyway Some thing in her something about her had loosened his tongue He had made n plain ass of himself that was aUn garrulous ass And truly It seemed that the girt beside him even In th starlight could follow and divine what he had scarcely expressed to himself or leer instincts had taken a shorter cut to forestall his own conclusion Dont think the things you are thinking she said in a fierce little voice leaning toward him What do you mean he asked taken aback You know Dont It is unfairi- ttIs faithless to me I am your friend Why not Does It make any difference to you whom I marry If such a friendship as ours is to become worth anything to youto me why should it trouble you that I know and am thinking of things that concern you Is It because the confidence is one sided Is It because you have given and I have listened and given nothing in return to balance the ac count I do give Interestdeep interest sympathy if you ask it I give confidence in return if you desire it What can a girl like you need of sympathy he said smiling You dont know you dont know If heredity is a dark vista and if you must stare through it ail your life sword In hand always on your guard do you think you are the only one Are you one he said incredu louslyYes with an Involuntary shudder not that way It is easier for me I think It Is I know it is But there are things to combatImpulses a recklessness perhaps something al most ruthless What else I do not know for I have never experienced violent emotions of any sortnever even deep emotion You are in love Yep thoroughly she added with conviction but not

Pertinent Points in Roosevelts Special Congressional Message Certain wealthy men whose conduct should be abhor rent to every man of ordinary decent conscience and who commit the hideous wrong of teaching our young men that phenomenal business success must ordinarily bo based on dishonesty have during tho last few months made it apparent that they have banded together to work for a reaction Their endeavor is to overthrow and discredit all who honestly administer the law to prevent any additional legislation which would check and restrain them and to secure if possible a freedom from all restraint which will permit every unscrupulous wrongdoer to do what he wishes unchecked providing he has enough money Tho only way to counteract the movement in which these men are engaged is to make clear to the public just what they have done in tho past and just what they are seeking to accomplish in the present- S S S- Under no circumstances would wo countenance attacks upon law abiding prosperity or do aught but condemn those who hold up rich men as being evil men because of their riches On the contrary our whole effort is to insist upon conduct and neither wealth nor property nor any other class distinction as being the proper standard by which to judge the actions of men S S S AVe seek to control litw defying wealth in the first place to pre vent its doing dire ovil to the republic and in the next place to avoid the vindictive and dreadful radicalism which if left uncontrolled it is certain in the end to arouse S S S We act in no vindictive spirit and wo are no respecters of per sons If a labor union does wrong we oppose it as firmly as we op- Pose a corporation which does wrong and we stand equally stoutly for the rights of the men of wealth and for tho rights of the wage worker G S S The extraordinary violence of assaults upon our policy contained in these speeches editorials articles advertisements and pamphlets and the enormous sums of money spent in these various ways give a fairly accurate measure of the anger and terror which our public ac tions have caused the corrupt men of vast wealth to feel in the very marrow of their being- S S S When wo are able to put the real wrongdoer In prison this is what we strive to do this is what we have actually done with some very wealthy criminals who moreover represented that most baneful of all alliances the alliance between the corruption of organized politics and the corruption of high finance- S S S The apologists of successful dishonesty always declaim against any effort to punish or prevent it on the ground that any sucheffort will unsettle business It is they who by their acts have unsettled business and the very men raising this cry spend hundreds of thous ands of dollars in securing the defense by misstatements of what they have done and yet when public servants correct their misstatements telling the truth they disclaim against them for break ing silence lest values be depreciated S S S the corrupt head of a corporation and the corrupt labor leader are both in the same degree the enemies of honest corporations and honest labor unions the rebate taker the franchise trafficker the manipulator of securities the purveyor and protector of vice the blackmailing ward boss tho ballot box stuffer the demagogue the mob leader the hired bully the man killer all alike work at the same web of corruption and all alike should be abhorred by honest men- The S S S business which is hurt by the movements of honesty is the only kind of business which in the long run it pays the country to have hurt It is the kind of business which has tended to make the very name high finance a term of scandal to which all honest Amer ican men of business should join in putting an end- S S The methods of the Standard Oil people and those engaged in the other combinations of which I have spoken above have achieved great fortunes can only be justified by the advocacy of a system of morality which would also justify every form of criminality on the part of a labor union and every form of violence corruption and ballotbox stuffing in politics 8oOur effort is simply to enforce the principles of common honesty and common sense It would indeed bo ill for the country should there bo any halt in our work 8 8 8 o o o There is ho nation so absolutely sure of ultimate success as ours Of course we shall succeed Ours is a nation of masterful energy with a continent for its domain and it Peals within its veins the thrill which comes to those who know that they possess the future- S S S- In the work woof this generation are in there is thanks be to the Almighty no danger of bloodshed and no use for the sword but there is grave need of those stern qualities shown by the men of the Northand the mop of the South in the dark days when each valiantly battled for the light as it was given each to see the light COUNTY SEAT NEWS ITEMS Preparations Being Made For Circuit Court Next

for Dalhart Texas was most comfortably located in three sleepers attached to the regular train leaving the Union Station at 930 P M This number was augmented by parties along the route from Louisville to Kansas City until on leaving the latter city the train consisted of seven Pull man sleepers A jollier crowd never went down over the Rock Island Road The heavy train caused the party to reach Dalhart three hours late finding every hotel in town already full by the four previous excursion trains that had unloaded at this point that day Our party was compelled to occupy their berths on the sleeper for the first night after this we were comfortably located at the different hotels a goodly number having rooms at the St Francis and others at the Dalhart The drawing for the lots purchased in Dalhart took place Friday morning at the Opera House and it was universally declared to have been conducted in the d most satisfactory manner possible there being no way by which any favoritism might have been shown Different members of the party expressed them selves as being highly pleased with the town and agreeably surprised at finding Dalhart a much larger and better city than they had been led to believe Miss Winstead of Vine Grove Ky drew a lot for whch she was offered j300 Others of the party had good offers on their lots Several contracts were let for cottages to be erected on the lots drawn by numbers of the party The Vine Grove crowd enjoyed an Auto trip out into the country from which they returned praising the tine farm lands of Dalhart and Hartley Counties Texas One interesting member of the party was Mr W H Brian of Stithton Ky a gentleman of 74 years and one whodespite his years was most highly pleased with the entire trip and declares he intends to locate in DalhartSaturday was spent in seeing the city and surrounding country recording the deeds and planning the return trip the majority of the party leaving Dalhart either Sunday or Monday To parties seeking a Western home they can find no better location than Dalhart Texas or the surrounding country Dalhart is a thriving enter prising city and the farm lands sur rounding her are as good as can be

of Property Under the Present System Tim general property tax was put Into effect In Kentucky partly because It was believed that under the old sys tem a groat deal of property In the shape of money bonds stocks mortgages lien notes and other evidences of credit escaped taxation It was hoped that by a rigid system of assess mont and inspection a greater amount of this class of property could be brought to light greatly increasing tire revenues of the state The system has succeeded in bring ing some of this kind of property to light but there is still an enormous amount of it that escapes taxation J The general property tax It should be remembered decrees that the same tax must fall on all classes of property Lot us suppose a man living in almost any town in the state is the owner of tt land note for 1000 on which G per cent interest is paid him In some of tho towns in the state his combined town county and state tax would be over 3 in most of them it would be between 250 and 3 Manifestly a man will be very unwilling to give in for taxatiou a piece of property that yields him G per cent only when by so reporting it he condemns himself to having to give up nearly half the Income from that property to tho tax collectorPerjury or Confiscation But the greater part of property of this alas does not pay as much as 6 per cent A vast amount of this prop erty held in the state perhaps as much ni ha f of it IB property hold in trust for the benefit of widows and children who are not able to earn money themselves but depend for their support upon the Income from property that has been left them by tho husband and father and which will be largely invested in notes stocks bonds and this general class of property In normal times much of this class of investment will not pay over 4 per cent the income runningII from 4 to BVi per cent If tax rate absorbs from 2 to 3 per cent it will be readily seen that very little Is left for the support of these helpless people The temptation to conceal property when the tax on it will absorb from onehalf to threefourths of the Income It yields Is stronger than the normal man can resist and as a rule he does not try to resist it in any state where this system of the general property tax prevails and that is why the tax authorities of states are coming so generally to denounce it In Kentucky the evasions of the tax on this class of property are enormous In Septem ber 1905 only 11480000 of bonds only 1438195 of stock in corpora tions and only 13040837 of bank de posits was given in for taxation al though the banks and trust companies of the state contained in that year 03500000 of deposits At the same time the assessors were able to find only 5407512 of money outside the banks or a total of about 18500000 of money That there should have bom thon only about 03000000 of deposits in the banks of the entire state of Kentucky is the most damning proof of the supreme economic folly of our system Effect on Value of Real Estate Wo may mark the secondary effect of this policy in the valuation of real estate It takes capital and accompanying prosperity to enhance real es tate values In 1880 the assessed real estate valuation was 805085908 or 100 per capita In 1890 before our now constitution with the present tax system went into effect the valuation increased to 203 per capita In 1900 after eight years of the new tax system it had in oroased to 200an increase of only G per capita The total assessed woalth of the state in 1880 was 21203 Per capita In 1800 just before the now constitution it had increased to 27680 From 1890 to 1900 with 14 yoars under the new tax system it in creased only to 293 per capita an Increase of less than 18 per capita in 1C years Under our old constitution with all its imperfections there was some lati tude given to localities in the encour agement of industries The new con stitution adopted in 1801 abolished most of this but did allow municipali ties to give five years exemption tone manufacturing concerns The act putting this clause of the constitution into effect was not passed until 1S9S The decade then from 1880 to 1890 illustrates the progress possible under the old liberal system tho decade from 1890 to 1900 Illustrates the result of the narrow policy of the new con Htltutiou before partial exemption became effective and the years since 1000 well show the result of the liberal policy of encouragement Mark then the result From 1880 to 1890 under a policy of encouragement the capital employed in manufacturing in Ken tucky increased 742 per cent From 1890 to 1900 with all encouragement withdrawn and heavy taxes imposed tho capital invested in manufactures increased only 304 per cent About 1900 tho fiveyears exemptions had been granted in many cities and towns and from 1900 to 1905 the cap tal Invested in manufactures In Ken tucky increased 674 per cent in by counties having no town larger than the sixth class Is included and i small percentage of this character 3l personalty given In by counties having larger towns and yet distinctly Agricultural The figures probably ire under rather than over the mark Farm property therefore by a con servative estimate pays nearly 53 per ont of the state taxes exclusive of ranchise taxes while town property pays only about 47 per cent Of the Kate revenue collected by the sheriffs f the state from assessors lists 431i per cent is paid by farm lands 34 per ent by tows lots about 9Y1 per cent iy money and securities about Va per cent by live stock and farmers implements etc and G pet cent by ther personalty It is time the Kentucky farmer realized that the present system bears heavily upon him Equivalent to 10 Per Cent Income Tax The tax commisison of the state of California has this to say about tho operation of the general property tax in farmers in that state The taXeS paid by farmers in Call fornia are equivalent to an income tax 3f 10 per cent This is In contrast to many other Industries for example the taxes paid by manufacturerr which amount only to 2 per cent on Income ThO persons engaged In agriculture with an average yearly Income of about 500 pay 50 per apita per annum In taxes The per ions engaged in manufactures with in average annual Income of 870 pay 1750 per capita per annum The California system here denounced Is the same that we have In Ken ucky and

ground upon which we can all stand We must have in increasing amount of revenue and that moans a moro just return ol the property In the state Where Is the injustice of laying n reasonable tax on the deposits reported by the banks of the state the same to be charged to depositors True not all depositors are residents of Ohio but they enjoy the protection of our laws and In large measure draw their in terest from our people This could at least be done with resident depositors and they would be relieved from the temptation to commit the crime of perjury The Kentucky Grange The Kentucky State Grange had this same subject before it at the meeting held In Frankfort October 21 to 23 1907 Mr F P Wolcott Master of the State Grange discussed the question In a very interesting manner as followsThe order has been most active In behalf of the Just regulation of taxation recognizing that tho farmer is losing more from our present sys tem and has more to gain from the establishment of a Just and equitable system of taxation than has any oth er class of citizens The order in rep resenting the agricultural class ale ways endeavors to be fair and honorable with all other Interests and has tho right to demand like treat ment In return In nearly every state In the Union the cry has been loud against unjust revenue laws and steps are being taken to remedy the evilsVarious State Granges have by their action declared It wrong to leg islate into the organic laws of a state any provision which shall exempt from taxation property aggregating vast sums In tho possesion of the wealthy and often kept by them In visible thus leaving the small hold Ing of tho masses of people of mod orate means to bear the burden ot doubled taxation The present constitution of Ken tucky binds us to the general prop erty taxthat Is to the system of levying the same tax upon all classes of property for all purposes There should be an amendment to our con stitution which will allow the legisla ture to separate the sources of reve nuethat IP to raise the state reve nue from certain classes of property leaving othor classes of property to be taxed for local purposes only It has been argued by some that this would throw too much power Into the hands of the legislature Should such an amendment prevail then would it devolve upon the voters of the state to pay stricter attention to the selection of their representatives than has obtained in the past In both city and country The Kentucky State Development association and other organizations have honored the Grange by placing upon its joint committee on taxation a member of this order as represen tative of the agricultural Interests of the state and it is Important that the views and demands of the farmers be clearly defined at this state session It is recommended that this body promptly and emphatically take ac tion In favor of Just and equitable revenue laws and for the establish ment of an official tax commission to be

In the great central plains of the continent and has also been cultivated for many ages In Egypt the melons grown along till Nile rival those of southeastern Mis souri The melons mentioned by the Israel ites as being among the good things they had in Egypt were undoubtedlyI watermelons for In the wall paintings about the time of the exodus the melon vine is represented and in one case a long procession of slaves Is depicted each bearing on his shoulder a huge dark green watermelon Botanists say that varieties of till melon are found In southern Asia und some even claim that the plant grows wild In central and South Africa but Africa Is no doubt the original home of the melon and In his preference over every other kind of vegetable or fruit the African merely displays a taste that

triangular brown ish bits that looked at first sight like flakes of dried bark What ore thosechIps- No Butterflies Such a reply with a foot of snow on the ground and great probability of a foot more before morning was accept ed as a pleasantry and not to be taken seriously The Idea of catching but terlllcs iu u snowstorm seemed too fishy for serious consideration- On the approach of winter most of the butterflies those delicate little creatures of fair weather naturally die But among their number there Is a whole hardy brood for which the rigors of winter possess no terrors Those are the angle wings or vanes slds They are frequently called thaw butterflies from the fact that during the warm spells of winter they awake from their torpor and may frequently be seen sunning themselves near their place of hibernation or If the weather is mild and pleasant flitting lightly about in the open places These Insects pass the winter both as chrysalis and as mature butterflies Normally they remain In the form only about two weeks crsallsI probable that the severe cold some before they are fully developed which tummy account for some of them hibernating as chrysalis St Nicholas Nelghb

then take a ballot for United States senator and adjourn for the day It is true that some committee meetings are held in the afternoon and at night but so far this rear the senatorial race seems to have domor allzed all attempts to get down to hard work It has been suggested that better results could be obtained if the legislators were paid a fixed salary for their full term instead of the five dollars a day they jipw receive Sen ator Nat Cureton of Louisville has offered a bill providing that all legisla tors shall receive 40 per month for their full twoyear term and the lieut enant governor to receive 2500 per year It is not believed that this bill will pass however and It it should pass it would not apply to the present legislature as the salary of an official cannot be changed after he has entered upon his duties t t- Out of all the bills Introduced look ing to the securing of a better system of public roads it is believed that some one good measure will be adopt ed The constitution does not permit state aid to roadbuilding but state aid seems to be the only solution of tho problem With this Idea in view Senator Bosworth has introduced a bill providing for a vote on the proposition to so amend the constitution that the state may lend Its credit to any county to help that county build good roads The plan is to have a county vote to issue bonds for a cer tain amount to build roads and then the state will endorse the bonds and thus the money can be raised to carry on the work Other states have even gone farther than this In New York the state contributes 50 per cent of the cost of all roads California and Colo rado pay all the cost Massachusetts pays all the cost but requires the counties to refund onehalf In six years In Ohio the state pays 25 per cent the county 50 per cent the town ships 15 per cent and the abutting property owners 10 per cent In Penn sylvania the state pays 75 per cent A large number of other states help the counties to a greater or less de gross to build the roads and unless some measure Is adopted by the legislature to promote roadbuilding Ken tucky will soon drop behind her sister states and be known as the mudroad state Kentucky has neglected her fish and game laws for so long or has failed to enforce them that fish and game have almost become things of the past Outer states have rigid laws on this subject and enforce them to the let ter but it use never been done in this state In fact there is an attempt at every session of the legislature to repeal the few restrictions as to fishing and hunting that are now on the stat uto books Representative Hunter of Clark county has Introduced a bill pro viding for the appointment of a state game and nah commission that shall appoint a game warden The bill fur ther provides for a gun license for all hunters of 2 for pump or repeating guns and I for other guns It also provides for a license of 1 for every fisherman who Is a resident of the state and 5 for all nonresidents and limits the amount of game and fish that may he taken In any one day Representative W C McChord of Washington county has offered a bill that he thinks will to a great extent solve the tobacco troubles in this state His bill provides first that all persons companies corporations or governments that are engaged in man ufacturing or buying tobacco in this state must first procure a license to do so from the state commissioner of agriculture second it provides that it shall be unlawful for any person en gaged in growing tobacco to put on any growing plants any poisonous sub stance for the purpose of destroying worms or insects or for any other pur pose thiru It makes It unlawful for any person having the possession of tobacco tho title of which is vested In another to sell or otherwise dispose of such tobacco without the consent of the person in whom the title Is vest ed The latter clause is to prevent anyone who has pooled his tobacco from taking It out of the pool and sell Ing it to the trust About the first bill to pass the sen ate was the Bosworth bill which au thorizes under certain conditions and restrictions the use of the public high ways roads and turnpikes by persons firms or corporations engaged In the manufacture transmission and distri bution of electricity for lighting heat Ing and power purposes The condi tions and restrictions are that the fixtures of tho said companies shall not in any way Interfere with travel on public roads And the said transmission lines shall be under the reasonable control of the althoritles having con trol of the roads Nothing In the act shal be construed to prevent the prop erty owners from obtaining damages for such rights and the act shall not JJI apply to any incorporated town city orjj One For Each
