Expresses Views Pledge Violation Discussed Decision Reversed By Court Of Appeals TEST OF DEMOCRACY ON Frankfort Ky Dec 1IThe Court of Appeals to day by unaraimous vote reversed the decision of Circuit Judge J M Benton who appointed Lee S Baldwin and Rufus Lisle receivers for the Burley Tobacco Societys pools of 1906 and 1007 and in an opinion written by Judge Ed C ORear declares that i the action of the lower court was pre mature I No decision is rendered as to the ownership of the 301000 fund realized from the outage fees of 3 a hogshead in the sale of the pooled crops of 1906 and 1007 which were sold to the American Tobacco Company and the inde pendant manufacturers in the fall of 1909 Cash Reverts To Society The money of the Burley Tobacco now deposited in Clark county is releas ed from the hands of the receivers and probably will be immediately with drawn from Winchester banks and de posited in Lexington The News At Lexington Within a few minutes after the dici slon of the Court of Appeals Friday reversing the decision of Judge J M Benton of Clark county which had previously placed the pools of 1900 and 1907 crops of the Burley Tobacco So ciety in the hands of a receiver the J news had been lashed into the offices of the Burley Society in Lexington Although it had been stated by mem bers of the society that such a decision would be the only outcome of the split there was a general smile of satisfac tion that the expected had happened The opinion of the higher court that the decision of the circuit tribunal is premature is based upon the fact that while 00 per cent of the 20000000 re ceived for the two pools has been paid out there are still pending suits against the Burley Society filed by the independent manufacturers and suits on be half of the Society against the inde pendents for damages arising from their failure to take and pay for the crops assigned to them in the meeting at Louisville which ended the long to bacco war and in which the growers won practically every point which they t contendedt gratifying both to the attorneys and the Executive Board that the Court of Appeals by a unanimous decision without any dis sent sustained the position of the So ciety with reference to the funds in the hands of the Clark County banks fuss Lloyd Expresses Views When asked by a representative oft The Herald for the expression of her k views regarding the reversal by the Court of Appeals of the decision of the Clark County Circuit Court Miss Lloyd saidI long ago became convinced that the principles involved in the tobacco growers organization is essentially right and that the final victory of the principals depends upon the growers themselves No forces from the outside will be strong enough to defeat them If they present a solid front to the opposition But when for minor matters and small misunderstandings they take to the Courts matters which should be settled within their own governing bodies when a small mino rity urges a course contrary to the views and interests of the majority when personal envy jealousy and nar rowmindedness takes the place of a broad and comprehensive view that has for its ultimate end the greatest good of the greatest number the friction so engendered may accomplish what op posing forces from the outside are unable to accomplish I tt t Two Views of Question tLooked at in one way the receiver ship contest so far as the Burley To bacco Society is concerned may be viewed as a fight simply to maintain its ground and not as making any advance upon the enemy Looked at in another way it does tend to solve a question of the power of the majority The tendency as a whole has been toii i Oc I unify the rank and file in their support- of their duly elected representatives It is a notable fact that the two great fights of the present year have been against factions aud would befniends of the farmers in our own ranks Most of the money energy and effort spent in the summer campaign was spent in undoing harm that had been done by those who either misunderstood or mis representedA leaf warehouseman said In Lexington recently The Tobacco Trust cannot afford to let the Burley Tobacco Society succeed this year If this society goes on two or three years with the 10 per cent stock in the Burley Tobacco Company the farmers or ganization will be as strong and power ful as the tobacco trust itself Id As It Should Be This is just as it should be and iif every grower will refuse either to buy or sell stock in the Burley Tobacco Company the power and strength of the farmers will be proportionately and equitably distributed It lies with the farmer to accomplish these results- If only those who are inclined to provoke factions and create friction would think seriouly of the large in terests involved we would certainly not have a repetition of the two distressing instances that have given trouble this year The ballot is the means for right ing all wrongs and in as Democratic an SoIto any other agency for redress What His Been Done Whether he be a member of the Burley Tobacco Society or not no in telligent observer of the events of the last four years can fall to recognize that the Burley Tobacco Society has brought to the state many millions of dollars in return for her tobacco crop Then why should the Society be opposed by any citizen who wishes the greatest good to the greatest number If the holding of his crop while others sellworks hardship on any grower it is but the history of every ad vance movement We have Inherited civil and religous liberty because of centuries of struggle on the part of those who have lived before us We shall prove unworthy of our traditions and our inheritance if we do not show undaunted courage and detYrminritioi in winning for ourselves and those whb come after us economic freedom Solid Front Only lls Necessary One of the most conservative men on the Executive Committee said a day or two since We have won if only the growers stand pat We have got the tobacco and the manafacturers will soon havei to have it All we have got to do is to keep a solid front This man talks littleand thinks much He does not deceive himself by believing what is most agreeable to him He speaks with knowledge of conditions and a large and successful experience Pledge Violation Discussed No man who has any just appreciation of what the issue really is and of what his citizenship means will allow any inducement to make him violate his pledge The Issue is on in this country between the widely scattered unorganized producers of raw materials and the closely organized manufacturers and transportation companies Un less the producers learn to stand to gether they are hopelessly at the mer cy of the manufacturers and transpor tation companies who do combine The test is on as to whether a Demo cracy can bo maintained or whether human nature is so constituted that the masses must serve the classes The man who fails to have his blood stirred by the situation is hopelessly Inferior either in character or intelligence Unworthy Name of Citizen The man who for any reason that could be presented to him would vio late his pledge is not a man and is un worthy the name of an American citi zen He is helping to build up a peasantry and a plutocracy in this country Ho Is unworthy as the tradi tions of the republic and the public school teachers the preachers and the editors would be well within the line of their duty if they spared no pains to teach the citizen and the children their duty in this matter liThe fight is not for a fair price for this year only but for a strong organ ization that will make fair prices for years to come and that will tend to a more even distribution of the nations wealth Vt rt xTfi- 741

Englands of the Colonial Days Germanys Unique System The present road situation In the United States may be briefly summed lip ns follows- In mileage we harp the most tremen dons system of rojds which any ioun try has ever possessed since till world began According to n careful road census till length of nil of out roods amounts to UirCiOOO miles The most liberal estimate of our annual oxpondl tare on those roads both In monoy and labor WitS a fraction over 70000000 HUM or about 101 ipor capita At the same rate this would be un ox pondlture of about 0000000 n year tthe present tulle According to our road census we here loss than 40000 miles of stone surfaiid road or about 2 por cent of the total mileage Ve have 10SOOO of gravel road or about 5 per lllt of the total mileage Small ns annual expenditure for roads IIIIH been It has aggregated during the thirty yelp period from 1S70 to 100 nII total of upward of 1SOOOOOOOO We therefore say that the road build In the United States Is consider area population old wealth nt the saute point at which It stood thirty years ago and the seventeen hundred and odrt million dollars have produced few appreciable rcsuls When wo turn to the subject of road administration In the United States we find that about half of the states are operating under practically the sonic road laws as prevailed In England when America was a colony This system of r md ndmlnifltratlon provides for the pn aiont of road taxes partly labor and localizes the work Jo an pxtreiup digrpo by placing In authority tho district lit township road over n Tutu

department the conduct of nil or part of the road work of the state thereby securing uniformity In meth uda economy in administration and skill in supervision In some of the state highway departments the work Is educational and investigative with view to ultimately giving these departments administrative powers It Is not possible In n short article to enter Into a discussion of thet various

have adopted It In principle and have actually expended from state treas uries considerably over 50000000 we may well feel encouraged for the future of road building In this country The striking

that Something might happen to her You must have expected that it would nnd you wore prepared to shut your eyes so Idng as she got what you want ed Thats what she cant overlook Then you think she did

of his arrival Smith hud been using to cut the leaves of a book and rushed at him Jlmsys big hands descended on both his assailants wrists Brooks was strong but he strained In vain in the grasp of Iron His right arm slowly weakened and twisted gradually until tho fingers opened and with a groan ofI pain he dropped the blade Smith con tinued to twist until he had wrung all tho fight out of him and he had him limp and helpless Then he let him go and picked up tho knife Youd better leave weapons out of your arguments Brooks or youll sure bo hurting somebody one of these flays ho recommended
