Question 9 REPUBLICANS RESPONSIBLE All Present Abuses a Result ol Their Acts and They Are Im potent to Correct Them Mr Clayton and Gentlemen of the Notification Committee I can not ac cept the nomination which you officially tender without first acknowledging my deep indebtedness to tho Democrat ic party for the extraordinary honor which it has conferred upon me Hav ing twice before boon a candidate for the presidency in campaigns which ended in defeat a third nomination the result of the free and voluntary act of tho voters of the party can only be ex plained by a substantial and undis puted growth in the principles and pol icies for which I with a multitude of others have contended As those prln ciples and policies have given mo what ever politicalI strength I possess the action of the convention not only re news my faith iu them but strengthens my attachment to them A Platform Is Binding- I shall in the near future prepare a more formal reply to your notification and in that letter of acceptance will deal with the platform iu detail It is sufficient at this time to assure you that I am in hearty accord with both the letter and the spirit of the plat form I endorse it In whole and in part and shall If elected regard its declarations as binding upon me And I may add a platform is binding ns to what it omits as well as to what it contains According to the democratic Idea the people think for themselves and select officials to carry out their wishes The voters are the sovereigns the officials are the servants employed for a fixed time and at a stated salary to do what the sovereigns want done and to do It In the way the sovereigns want It done Platforms are entirely In harmony with this democratic idea A platform announces the partys po sition on the questions which are at Is sue and an official Jis not at liberty to use the authority vested in him to urge personal views which have not boon submitted to the voters for their approval If one In nominated upon a platform which Is not satisfactory to him be Inuit if candid either decline the nomination or In accepting it pro pose an mended platform In lieu of the one adopted by the convention No such situation however confronts your candidate for the platform upon which I was nominated not only contains nothing from which I dissent but It specifically outlines all the remedial legislation which we can hope to go curt during the next four years Republican Challenge Accepted The distinguished statesman who re ceived the Uopubllcan nomination for president said In his notification speech The strength of the Republican cause In tho campaign at hand Is the fact that we represent the policies es sential to the reform of known abuses to the continuance of liberty and true prosperity and that we are determined ns our platform unequivocally declares to maintain them and carry thorn on In the name of the Democratic party 1 accept the challenge and charge that the Republican party is refljronslble for nil the aliiices Mukh now exist In the federal government and that It Is fur potent to accoiupllHh the reforms which nre Imperatively needed Further t can not concur In the statement that the Republican platform unequivocally declares for tho reforms that are nec cssary on the contrary I nfllrm that It openly and notoriously disappoints the hopes and expectations of reformers whether those reformers be Republic ails or Democrats So far did the Ito publican convention fall short of its duty that time Republican candidate felt It necessary to add to his platform In several Important particulars thus rev buking the loaders of the party upon whose cooperation ho must rely for the enactment of remedial legislation- As I shall in separate speeches dis cps the leading questions at issue I shnll at this time confine myself to the paramount question and to the far reaching purpose of our party as that purpose is set forth In tho platform Shall the People Rule Our platform declares that the over shadowing Issuo which manifests itsel In all the questions now under discus slon Is Shall the people rule Nto matter which way we turn no matte to what subject we address ourselves the same question confronts us the people control their own ShallI ment and use that government protection of their rights and for the promotion of their welfare or shal the representatives of predatory wealth prey upon a defenseless public the offenders secure immunity wbUeI subservient officials whom they to power by unscrupulous methods This Is the issue raised by the knows abuses to which Mr Taft refers Presidents Indictment Against Party theI In a message sent to congress last January President Roosevelt said The attacks by these great corpora tlons on the administrations action have been given a wide circulation throughout the country In the news papers and otherwise by those writer and speakers who consciously or unconsciously act as the representative of predatory wealth of the wealth ac cumulated on a giant scale by all formsI of Iniquity ranging from the opprcs slon of wage earners to unfair and un wholesome methods of crushing out competition and to defrauding th public by stockJobbing and the manipulation of securities Certain wealthy mon of this stamp whoso conduct should be abhorrent to every man or ordinarily decent conscience and who commit the hideous wrong of teaching our young men that phenomenal busl ness success must ordinarily be 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 hon estly administer tho 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 ho wishes unchecked provided he tins enough money What an arraignment of the predatory interests- Is the presidents indictment true And if true against whom was the indictment directed Not against the Democratic party Mr Taft Endorses the Indictment Mr Taft says that these evils have crept in during tho last ton years Ho declares that during this time some prominent and influential members of the community spurred by financial success and In their hurry for greater wealth became unmindful of tho com mon rules of business honesty and fidelity and of the limitations imposed by law upon their actions and that the revelations of the breaches of trusts the disclosures as to rebates and discriminations by railroads the I accumulating evidence of tho violations of the antitrust laws by a num her of corporations and the overIssue of stocks and bonds of interstate rail roads for the unlawful enriching of directors and for the purpose of concentrating the control of tho railroads un der one management all these he charges quickened the conscience of the people and brought on a moral awakeningDuring this time I bog to remind you Republican officials presided in the executive department filled the cab- Inet dominated the senate controlled tho house of representatives and occu pied most of the federal Judgeships Four years ago the Republican platform boastfully declared that since- 1500with tho exception of two years the Republican party had been in control of part or of all the branches of the federalI government that for two years only was the Democratic party in a position to either enact or repeal a law Having drawn the salaries hay ing enjoyed the honors having secured the prestige let the Itopubllcan party accept the responsibility Republican Party Responsible Why were these known abuses permitted to develop Why have they not been corrected If existing laws are sufficient why have they not been enforced All of the executive ma chinery of the federal government Is In the hands of the Republican party Are now laws necessary Why have they not been enacted With aRe publican president to recommend with a Republican senate and house to carry out his recommendations why does the Republican candidate plead for further time in which to do what should have been done long ago Can Mr Taft promise to be more strenuous In the prosecution of wrongdoers than the present executive Can he ask for a larger majority In the senate than his party now has Does he need more Republicans in the house of representatives or a speaker with more unlim ited authorityWhy No Tariff Reform The presidents close friends have been promising for several years that ho would attack the iniquities of the tariff We have had intimation that Mr Taft was restive under the demands of the highly protected in dustries And yet the Influence of the manufacturers who have for twenty Iwo years contributed to the Republican campaign fund and who in return have framed the tariff schedules has been sufficient to prevent tariff reform As tho present campaign approached both the president and Mr Taft de flared in favor of tariff revision but set the date of revision after the elec Lion But tho pressure brought to bear by the protected Interests has been great enough to prevent any attempt at tariff reform before the election and tho reduction promised after the elec Lion is so hedged about with qualify ing phrases that no one can estimate with accuracy the sum total of tariff reform to be expected in case of Re- pUblican success If the past can be taken as a guide the Republican party will be so obligated by campaign con i f trlbutlons from the beneficiaries of protection as to make that party powerless to bring to the country any material relief from the present tariff burdensWhy I No Antitrust Legislation- A few years ago the Republican leaders In the house of representatives were coerced by public opinion into the support of an antitrust law which had time endorsement of the president but the senate refused even to consider the measure and since that time no effort has been made by the dominant party to secure remedial legisla tlonupon this subject Why No Railroad Legislation For ten years tho Interstate Com merce Commission has been asking for an enlargement of Its powers that It might prevent rebates and discrimina tions but a Republican senate and a I I representativesI tion was urged to end 1se the demand for railway legislation but its platform was silent ou the subject Even In 1001 tile convention gave no pledge to remedy these abuses When the presi dent finally asked for legislation ho drew his Inspiration from three Demo cratic national platforms and ho received more cordial support from the Democrats than from the Republicans Tub Republicans In the senate deliberately defeated several amendments of ferred by Senator La Follotto and sup ported by tho terstate embodying DemocratsamendmentsI OnoI I of these amendments authorized the ascertainment of the value of rail roads This amendment was not only defeated by the senate but It was overwhelmingly rejected by the recent Re publican national convention and the Republican candidate has sought to res cue his party from the disastrous re sults of this act by expressing him self In a qualified way in favor of ascertaining the value of the railroads Overissue of Stocks and Bonds Mr Taft complains of the overIssue of stocks and bonds of railroads for the unlawful enriching of directors and for the purposo of concentrating the control of the railroads under one management and the complaint is well founded But with a president to point out the evil and a Republican congress to correct it we find nothing done for the protection of the public Why My honorable opponent has by his confession relieved me of the necessity of furnishing proof ho admits tho condition and he can not avoid tho logical conclusion that must be drawn from the admission There is no doubt whatever that a large majority of the voters of the Republican party recog nize the deplorable situation which Mr Taft describes they recognize that the masses have had but little influence upon legislation or upon the ad ministration of the government and they aro beginning to understand the cause For a generation tho Re is publican party has drawn its cam palgn funds from the beneficiaries of special legislation Privileges have been pledged and granted In return for money contributed to debauch elections What can be expected when official authority is turned over to the representatives of those who first fur nish the sinews of war and then relm burse themselves out of the pockets of thetaxpayersFasting Wilderness Necessary- So long as the Republican party re nalns In power it Is powerless to regenerate itself It can not attack vrong doing in high places without dls gracIng many of Its prominent manners and it therefore uses opiates In tend of the surgeons knife Its male factors construe each Republican vIc- tory as an endorsement of their conduct and threaten the party with de eut if they aro Interfered with Not until that party passes through n pe lod of fasting In the wilderness will tho Republican leaders learn to study uibllc questions from the standpoint of the masses Just as with Individ uals the cares of this world and the loccltfulness of riches choke the truth so In politics when party leaders serve flu away from home and are not Inconstant contact with the voters continued party success blinds their eyes to the needs of the people and makes them deaf to the cry of distress Publicity as to Campaign Contribu tions An effort has been made to secure legislation requiring publicity as to campaign contributions and expend tures but the Republican leaders even In the face of an Indignant public re used to consent to a law which would compel honesty in elections When the matter was brought up in the recent Republican national convention the plank was repudiated by a vote of 880 to 04 Here too Mr Taft has been irlvcn to apologize for his convention and to declare himself in favor of a publicity law and yet If you will read what he says upon this subject you will find that his promise falls far short of the requirements of the situation He says If I am elected president I shall urge upon congress with every hope qf success that a law be passed requiring the filing In a federal office of a statement of the contributions received by committees and candidates In elections for members of congress and in such jther elections as aro constitutionally within the control of congress- I shall not embarrass him by asking tim upon what ho bases his hope of success It is certainly not on any encouragement he has received from Re publican leaders It is sufficient to say that If his hopes wero realizedit in spite of the adverse action of his convention he should succeed in securing tho enactment of the very law which io favors It would give but partial re let He has read the Democratic plat Conn not only his language but his evident alarm Indicates that be hIlS read it carefully lie even had before him the action of the Democratic na- tIonal committee In interpreting and applying that platform and yet befalls to say that he favors the publlca tion of the contributions before tin election Of course It satisfies a nat ural curiosity to find out how an election has been purchased even whet the knowledge comes too late to be or service but why should tho people be kept in darkness until the election IIs past Why should the locking of tin door be delayed until the horse is gone An Election a Public Affair An election is n public affair Thi people exercising the right to select their officials and to decide upon the policies to be pursued proceed to their

their turnT Whether or not Breckenridge will lx content with Senator Owen we are un aUle to learn It is but fair to eta that advices received here on Monday are to the effect that Breckenridge will undoubtedly have one or more candi area in the field for this nomination and the most talkedof gentleman that connection are Circuit Clerk Tcoore of Hardinfburg and former Representative Shellman of

of the age have unequivocally condemned and de nounced the liquor traffic as the greatest and most terrible curso of modern civilization and the Supreme Court of the United States 1 recognizing this

poisonous worm in the distillery until it empties into the hell of death dishonor and 1crimo it demoralizes everybody that touches it from its source to where it ends I do not believe anybody can contemplate the subject without becoming prejudiced against that liquor crime All we have to do gentlemen is to think of the wrecks on either bank of the stream of death of the suicides of the insanity of the poverty of the ignorance of the destitution of the little children tugging at the fadedand weary breasts of weeping and despairing wives asking for bread of the talented men of genius it has wrecked tho men strug gling with imaginary serpents produced by this devilish thing and when you think of the jails the almshouses of the asylums of the prisons of the scaffolds upon either

the states but the movement had not reached a point where It maul fested Itself through congressional ac lion In the Fiftysecond congress however a resolution was reported t from a house committee proposing the necessary constitutional amendment and this resolution passed the house of representatives by a vote which was practically unanimous In the Fiftythird congress a similar resolu tion was reported to and adopted by I the house of representatives Both the Fiftysecond and Fiftythird con tresses were Democratic The Repub o leans gained control of the house as a result of the election of 1804 and In the Fiftyfourth congress the proposition r died In committee As time went t on however the sentiment grew among the people until It forced a Republican congress to follow the example set by the Democrats and then another and another Republican congress acted fa ti rorably State after state has endorsed this reform until nearly twothirds of the states have recorded themselves In Its favor The United States senate however Impudently and arrogantly obstructs the passage of the resolution notwithstanding the fact that the voters of the United States by an over 0 whelming majority demand it And this refusal Is the more significant whop It is remembered that a number of sonators owe their election to great corporate Interests Three Democratic national platformsthe platforms of 1000 1001 and 100S specifically call for a change In the constitution which tvlll put the election of senators In the bands of the voters and the proposl lion has been endorsed by a number tf the smaller parties but no Repub lican national convention has been willing to champion the cause of the people on this subject The subject was Ignored by the Republican national convention In 1000 it was Ignored in mot and tho proposition was explicit r ly repudiated in 100S for the recent Republican national convention by a vote of 806 to 114 rejected the plank endorsing the popular election of sen- t4rsand this was done in the conven tion which nominated Mr Taft few delegates from his own state voting for the plank Personal Inclination Not Sufficient- In his notification speech the Repub lican candidate speaking of the aloe Lion of senators by the people says Personally I am Inclined to favor it ti but it Is hardly a party question What is necessary to make this a party question When the Democratic con ventlon endorses a proposition by a unanimous vote and the Republican convention rejects the proposition by a vote of seven to ono does it not be come an Issuo between the parties Mr Taft can not remove the question from the arena of politics by express- Ing a personal Inclination toward the Democratic position For several years he has been connected with the administration What has he ever aid or done to bring this question before the public What enthusiasm has he shown In the reformation of the senate What influence could he exert in behalf of a reform which his party has

president may personally incline toward a reform the house may consent to It but as long as the senate obstructs the reform the peo plo must walt The president may hood n popular demand the house may yield to public opinion but as long as the senate la defiant the rule of the people it defeated The Democratic platform very properly describes the popular election of senators as the gateway to other national reforms Shall we open the gate or shall we allow the exploiting interests to bar the way by the control of this branch of the federal legislature Through n Democratic victory and through a Democratic victory only can the peo ple secure the popular election of sen ators The smaller parties are unable to secure this reform the Republican party under its present leadership is resolutely opposed to It the Democratic party stands for It and has boldly demanded it If I am elected to the presidency those who are elected upon the ticket with me will be like myself pledged to this reform and I shall convene congress in extraordi nary session Immediately after inau guration and ask among other things for the fulfillment of this platform pledge House Rules DespoticI The third instrumentality employed to defeat the will of the people is found in the rules of the house of rep resentatives Our platform points out that the house of representatives was designed by the fathers of the consti tution to be the popular branch of our government responsive to the public will and adds The house of representatives ns controlled In recent years by the Re publican party has ceased to be a de liberative and legislative body respon sive to the will of a majority of the members but has come under the ab solute domination of the speaker who has entire control of Its deliberations and powers of legislation We have observed with amazement the popular branch of our federal gov ernment helpless to obtain either the consideration or enactment of meas ures desired by a majority of Its mem bers This arraignment is fully justified The reform Republicans In the house of representatives when In the minor ity in their own lparty are as helpless to obtain a hearing or to secure a vote upon a measure as are the Democrats In the recent session of the present congress there was a considerable ele ment in the Republican party favorable to remedial legislation but a few lead ers in control of the organization despotically suppressed these members and thus forced a real majority in the house to submit to a well organ ized minority The Republican national convention Instead of rebuking this attack upon popular government eulo gized congress and nominated as the Republican candidate for vice president one of the men who shared In the responsibility for the coercion of the house Our party demands that the house of representatives shall again become a deliberative body controlled by a majority of the peoples repro sentatives and not by tho speaker and is pledged to adopt such rules and regulations to govern the house of representatives as will enable a ma jority of Its members to direct its deliberations and control legislation Shall the people rule They can not do so unless they can control the house of representatives and through their representatives in the house give expression to their purposes and their desires The Republican party Is committed to the methods now In vogue In the house of representatives the Democratic party Is pledged to such a revision of the rules as will bring the popular branch of the federal government Into harmony with the ideas of those who framed our constitution and founded our government Other Issues Will I Discussed Later Shall the people rule I repeat Is daclMBfL bv urohitfonn to bo the 1 overshailo ins question and ns till campaign progresses I shall take occa sion to discuss this question as It man ifests Itself In other issues for whether we consider the tariff question the trust question the railroad question the banking question the labor ques tion the question of imperialism the development of our waterways or any other of the numerous problems which press for solution we shall find that the real question Involved in each IIs whether the government shall remain a mere business asset of favor seeking iorporatlous or be an Instrument In the hands of the people for the ad vancement of the common weal Democratic Party Has Earned Confidence It the voters are satisfied with the record of the Republican party and with its management of public affairs I we can not reasonably ask for n change In administration if however the voters feel that the people as a whole have too little Influence in shap ing the policies of the government if they feel that great combinations of capital have encroached upon tho rights of the masses and employed the Instrumentalities of government to secure an unfair share of the total wealth produced then we have a right to ex pect a verdict against the Republican party and in favor of the Democratic party for our party has risked defeat aye suffered defeatIn Its effort to arouse the conscience of the public and to bring about that very awakening to which Mr Taft has referred Only those are worthy to be entrust ed with leadershipl In a great cause who are willing to die for it and the Democratic party has proven its worthi ness by Its refusal to purchase victory by delivering the people into the hands of those who have despoiled them In this contest between Democracy on the one side and plutocracy on the other the Democratic party has taken Its po sition on the side of equal rights and Invites the opposition of those who use politics to secure special privileges and governmental favoritism Gauging the progress of the nation not by the happiness or wealth or refinement of a few but by the prosperity and ads vancement of the average man the Democratic party charges the Repub lican party with being the promoter of present abuses the opponent of necessary remedies and the only bulwark of private monopoly The Democratic party afllrme that Iin this campaign it Is the only party having a prospect of success which stands for justice In government and for equity In the divi sion of the fruits of Industry Democratic Party Defender of Honest Wealth We may expect those who have com mitted larceny by law and purchased Immunity with their political Influence to attempt to raise false issues and to employ the livery of Heaven to con ceal their evil purposes but they can no longer deceive The Democratic party Is not the enemy of any legitimate Industry or of honest accumula tions It Is on the contrary a friend of industry and the steadfast protector of that wealth which represents a serv- Ice to society The Democratic party docs not seek to annihilate all corpora tions It simply asserts that as the gov ernment creates corporations it must retain the power to regulate and to control them and that It should not permit any corporation to convert Itself shouldIcoop corporations in our effort to protect business and Industry from the odium which lawless combinations of capital will If unchecked cast upon them Only by the separation of the good from the bad can the good be made secureNot Revolution but Reformation The Democratic party seeks not revo lution but reformation and I need hardly remind the student of history that cures are mildest when applied at once that remedies increase in severity as their application is postponed Blood poisoning may be stopped by the loss of a finger today It may cost an arm tomorrow or a life the next day So poison in the body politic can not be removed too soon for the evils pro duced by It Increase with the lapse of time That there are abuses which need to be remedied even the Repub lican candidate admits that his party is unable to remedy them has been fully demonstrated during the last ten years I have such confidence in the Intelligence as well as the patriotism of the people thht I can not doubt their readiness to accept the reasonable reforms which our party proposes rather than permit the continued growth of existing abuses to hurry the country on to remedies more radical and more drastic Our Partys Ideal The platform of our party closes with a brief statement 0f the partys ideal It favors such an administration of the government as will Insure as far as human wisdom can that each cltl zen shall draw from society a reward commensurate with his contribution to the welfare cf society Governments are good In proportion as they assure to each member of so ciety so far as governments can a return commensurate with Individual meritThe Divine Law of Rewards There is a Divine law of rewards When the Creator gave us the earth with Its fruitful soil the sunshine with its warmth and the rains with their moisture Ho proclaimed as clearly as if His voice had thundered from the clouds Go work and according to your industry and your Intelligence so shall bo your reward Only whero might has overthrown cunning undermined or government suspended this law has a different law prevailed To conform the government to this law ought to be the ambition

Sold by A R Fisher f1 Hq J pfiIi t Tr vr r RACK ROAn MACHINE 4 When Best to Use the Split Log Drag FOLLOWING EACH HEAVY RAIN Finest Work Done When the Soil Is Moist Not Stjcky Clay Highway Dragging Needs Special Attention Eccnomy ofthe Device The hest results with the split lot drag have been obtained by dragging roads once each day after each heavy rain In some cases however on dragging every three or four weeks has been found sufficient to keep a road In good condition When the soil is moist but not sticky the drag does Its best work says a bul letin from the government olllce of public roads As the soil In a field will bake If ploVcd wet so the road will bake if thedrag ls used on it when it Is WQtylf the roadway is full of holes or Mdl rutted the drag should b i tised once when the ground is soft and slushy This is particularly ap plicable before a cold spell in winter I when it is possible to so prepare the surface that it will freeze smooth Not infrequently conditions are met which may be overcome by a slight change in the manner of hitching Shortening the chain tends to lift the front slab and make the cutting slight while a longer hitch causes the front to sink more deeply into the earth and act on the principle of a plow If a furrow of earth is to be moved the doubletree should be attached close to the ditch end of the drag and the driver should stand with one foot on the extreme forward end of the front slab- Conditions are so varied in quiteiimpossible to lay down specific rules Certain sections of a roadway will re quire more attention than others be cause of steep grades wet weather springs soil conditions exposure to sun and wind washes etc There is one condition however in which special attention should be given Clay roads under persistent dragging fro quently become too high in the center This may be corrected by dragging the earth toward the center of the road twice and away from it once There is no question as to the econo my of this roadmaklng implement either in first cost or in operation In six counties in Kansas in 1000 the cost of maintaining ordinary earth roads without the aid of the split log drag averaged 4250 a mile These figures were furnished by Professor W 0 Hoad of the University of Kansas i who secured them from official records of the counties Some figures furnished by F P San born and R H Aishton general man ager of the Chicago and Northwestern railroad have revealed the wonders of this simple device Mr Sanborn said The least expense per mile per annum or spilt log dragging was 150 he greatest a little otter 0 and the average expense per mile for five and half miles a little over 3 I have1 1a along this road all my life and never in forty years have I seen it freer from mud and dust despite the fact that during the season we have experienced the extremes of weather conditionsThe of Mr Aishton Is equally strong Learning that a town ship in Iowa had been making an in vestigation of the split log drag and had been experimenting with it for a year on twentyeight miles of highway he sent an agent to secure Infor mation It was reported that al though the town board had paid the cost of making the drags and of hiring men to operate them the total expense for one year averaged but 240 a mile and the roads were re ported to have been like a race track the greater portion of the year

piece of construction the engine of the human frame To run that engine air is the first necessity Construct it how you will the greater part of the energy which feeds a power plant is lost before it reaches the applying machine The body only has tho power of using energy really economically and efficiently Its food is Its fuel To be available all the constituents of that food must be burned producing heat and power For that burning the oxygen of the air is essential Equally true is it that nitrogen must be present to prevent the rapid combustion which would take place in oxygen alone But whether the combustion be fast or slow the action is the same The body burns the carbon and hy drogen of its food and gives out the oxides of these substances carbon dioxide carbon acid gas and hydrogen oxide water Tho water that Is formed within the body by the burn ing of hydrogen Is of comparatively slight importance In a consideration rf the vital questions of the effect of city air upon the Individual but the other factor the carbon dioxide formed in the body is of direct importance fouls Godfrey In Atlantic Disagreeable at Home Lots of men and women who ate agreable with others get

out before the spectator in Pains elaborate production Last Days of Pompeii The scenic city spreads out over an area of four acres or ground and so perfect is the work of the painter In the perspective that one seems to be looking upon a real city and a landscape that stretches seemingly away for miles Real massive buildings twenty to fifty feet high loom up In the foreground representing the palaces temples etc of the picturesque ancient city while huge triumphal arches adorn its streets Towering alOve all these is the ever beautiful but treacherous Mt Vesuvius A force of over forty skill ed scenic mechanics are necessary to place this scenic city in position each day In spite of every time and laborsaving devce that can be provided Pompeii Is to be destroyed again Not the ancient city that nestled among the Italian hiHs at the foot of Mt Vesuvius but the big scenic city In Pains vast spectacle of Last Days of Pompeii that will be seen at the Kentucky State Fair This mimic city represents with Ideal accuracy the fated city that perished In the First century of tho Christian era The scenery used in this production covers an area of fully four acres of ground but so deceptive Is the perspective that It appears to spread out many tinges that space The overII said to be marvelously correct and his torically accurate being like what the archeologists now suppose the ancient city was at the time It was destroyed The whole effect under the glare of half a hundred arc lights and calclums is most beautiful As one sits In the vast amphitheatre and gazes on the scone before him he sees the tall Vesuvius with Its head raised against the sky below are the houses tom pIes arches etc and to properly rep resent those latter many real struc tures twenty to forty feet In height are blended In with the picture In the background The scone opens with a fete day in the ancient city and for upward of an hour the audience Is entertained with a vivid production of the sports and feats of the hippo drome exciting chariot races sensa tional aerial and acrobatic feats pret ty ballets imposing and gorgeously costumed processions choruses mu sic etc The tragic dramatic episodes of the spectacle are shown In panto mime The fetes are interrupted by the terrific eruption of Vesuvius and the destruction of the city by the earthquake which Is a scene thrilling beyond description and brings into ac tion all the skill and Ingeniousness of Pains artists Following these stir ring scenes there Is presented a beautiful exhibition of fireworks and those who have seen these pyrotechnics of the famous Pain have never realized the full meaning of the word before Railroads will make special rates from nearly all surrounding towns on the date of this exhibition The most magnificent display of py rotechnics ever witnessed in this see tion of the state is promised in con nection with Pains big spectacle This display Is In fact the crowning feat ure of the
