depleted con dition of the State Treasury has been brought out by the investigation noon and having to do with the manage ment and conditions of the Kentucky militia From the testimony of wit nesses It has been developed that the State spent during the night rider troubles a total of 89000 in sending State troops to first one placo and then another and in many instances without any request having been made to the Governor to send troops It has been developed that the bill of o e liveryman alone for horse hire to militiamen and not including feed was more than J10 000 This is looked upon as tank extravagance on the part of Governor I brought about by poor judgment on his part It is generally conceded that little or no good was accomplished by moans of the State militia during the night

one month ago It seems so strange to mo that I never see in the CourierJournal any word of praise fur the good effects of the no saloon in these places You know as I know that no man is able to handle any kind of business tanked up on booze Why is it that the CourierJournal constantly says in this local optlon question it is being agitated by cranks and religious lunatics You know and as any observing and thinking man knows that it is the law abiding and intelligent citizens of Kentucky that have put the saloons out of so many counties of the State The majority of the intelligent voters of Kentucky want a county unit bill passed They elected enough honest men to the Legislathre and Senate to pass it if it was in tine hands to report it Show me any question of this day that can enlist

Up By lion Ben Johnson of Kentucky Washington Feb 14At the hear ing before the committee which is in vestigating the prices of foodstuffs Representative Johnson today brought to light the injustice being done by the beef trusts to the Kentucky and other cattle growers of the Southern States Mr Johnson made Inspector Repp oSvne United States Bureau of Animal Industry admit that the Northern packers discriminate in prices against all cattle producers south of the Ohio river The admission was brought about as a result of a statement made by Inspector Repp that 1000 pound steers were now selling at the princi pal stockyards in this county for 050 per hunderdweight t Mr Johnson produced a Louisville paper wherein it was stated that the highestpriced steer on the Louisville market last Saturday brought only 540 while the average 1000 pound steer sold for much less Upon being confronted with this Inspector Rep then stated in substance that the packers would not pay as much for a Kentucky steer as they would for an Indi ana steer notwithstanding the fact that the Kentucky steer might be just iU good in every respect Being pressed by Mr Johnson h finally admitted that it was nothin more and nothing less than a dls crimination upon the partof the pack iWs against every steer put upon the market which has been raised south of tha Ohio river 1 t Mr Johnson characterizes this

Shaunee chief Tecumseh and his brother Eks wata the prophet sought to establish the confederation of Indiana tribes of the northwest to stay the march of civilzationA is the celebrated battle ground of Tippecanoe when the Decisive battle was fought Wrn Henry Harrison and his brave men mostly Ken tuckians I think daubed to pieces the red mans hope of ever being able to stay the progress of civilzation It was my pleasure a few days ago to visit the old battle field and stand on fhe same spot where Tecumseh fell and see the same Oak trees in which the red men concealed themselves before

EGISLATION County Unit Idea Continues To Disturb ths Solans ONE LAW ENACTED IN 38 DAYS Measure Increasing the Salaries of All Circuit Judges Now In the Hands of the Governor Colonel Jack Chinns Unique Plan to Prevent Men From Carrying Concealed Weapons Legislative Review BY J H STUART Frankfort Ivy SpeclalIt IIs Im i Mcible to write about the doingsc ot the present 1 kKtaluture any week f any day without saying some hing about the county unit extension i bin and what effect it Is having on all other legislation in fart the do- Ings of the legislature have amounted to almostt nothing so far IHCUUBP of the tight over this county writ matter Just nowI lis claimed that ttin Iiknds1 of that measure In the house are re tarding tli advancement of all bills in an effort to force a von on the county unit lhill Every day or two some friend of the measure will make a motion to take this bill up and make it a special order for a certain day or hour It takes a twothirds vote of those present to thus suspend the rule and so far the friends of tho county unit have never been able to get the mcchsary votes to get the bill advanced In last the light tins been BO determined that only ono bill hud been able to get tthrough both branch M of the legislature till 38 legislative days of tin constitutional 00 had ox Bind and that bill was the one which in effect increases tho salary of all rlrcuit judges to 4200 a year This bill would probably have never heon hurried upIXppt for the powerful Influence that the many circuit judges brought to bear on tho members of the house and Induced some of tho friends and some of time enemies of the county unit measure to unite in placing that bill on Us passage almond of many others The senate had for a time appar ontly quit taking any Interest in the county unit measures but last rhurs day the fight was ronowed with much j vigor The committee on religion and morals was called on to report In tho regular course of business Tho coun ty unit bill No 1 was reported with out an expression of opinion which roport under tho rules operated auto matically to indefinitely postpone tho bill The same committee however had another county bill No 44 andI before tho committee could make time f I roport on that Senator Thomas of a Bourbon quoted section 40 of tho con L billLf No A This precipitated a long parliament ary fight President Cox finally ruled i that any senator had a right to call- ai i bill from a committee after the committee had failed to roport it in a 1 reasonable time that the committee t tI on religion and morals had been in possession of the bill No 44 for a reasonable time and that when the bill was so called from the commit tee it wont Into tho orders of the day just like any over bill that hid been c rprortod to the senato without brine f f r m called out Senator Tombs appealed from his decision and the senate sus tamed the appeal by a vote of 18 to 16 This would seem to settle the county unit measures as far as the senate Is concerned but the friends of the bill are still hoping and will take advantage of any opportun ity to get the bill to a direct vote of the senate for passage f The Joint committee of tho house and senate that has been Investigat ing the adjutant generals office has not made a report yet but one is ex petted In a few days The members of tho committee decline to tell what they have discovered but It has leaked out from reliable sources that some very large amounts of money were paid out last year and year before for the service of soldiers during the night rider disturbances One instance Is cited from Hopkins vlllo where the committee discovered that one livery stable owner had been paid over 10 000 for horse anti vehicle hlro for tine of soldiers It is not theff there was any Fran or made by the liveryman overchargesJJ that such a large sum was paid out to one liveryman in one county is cited to show what an enormous sum must have been paid out In all for the same purposes a Colonel Jack Chinn the famous turfman who Is the representative from Mercer county has a most unique plan to prevent men from car rying pistols He Introduced a bill early in the session which provided that a titan who was convicted of the offense of carrying a pistol should bo declared insane and confined in an asylum After consulting with some attorneys he concluded this measure was unconstitutional so he has evolv ed another plan When asked about it he said I would make every man who wants to carry a gun pay a license fee of 52 and then require him to wear a badge on the outside of his coat contriing the words I am carrying a gun I would have time namc of nil those who take out a license furnished to the policemen and con stables of every county and authorize them to arrest any ono of them who is found with a gun and without his badge on I think that would settle the thing for no man would want to wear a badge of that sort nor would he want to take the chance of being arrested for not wearing It If ho car ried a gun + The bill which In effect Increases the salaries of all the circuit judges in the state from 3000 to 4200 has passed both houses and is now in the governors hands for approval or dis approval Time constitution prohibits the salary of any official from being raised after he Is elected and enters upon the duties of his office so this bill had to be framed so as to evade the constitutional Inhibition The bill provides that the regular judges shall act as special judges whenever they have a spare week or month in the year from their regular terms and shall servo In other districts than their own when a special judge Is necessary in that other district It further provides that tho governor shall commission each one as a special Judge and for these extra or ad ditional service they shall receive 1200 a year It was contended and properly so It Is said that the In creased cost of living had been so great that a circuit judge who travels around his district and pays his own expenses and that of his family at homo could hardly live on the pres ont salary and that it was a hard matter to Bet a first class lawyer to jif i accept or run for the oince it is sum that Governor Willson will approve the bill but that Is further along No compromise or agreement hap been reached between the house andI senate as to what shall be done to the state treasury and pay the deficit of over 1000000 that now exists The house seems wedded to the idea of Issuing Interest bearing warrants while the senate thinks the bond Is sue Is the only proper thing A sim- Ilar condition existed In this state iInI 1897 and the special session of the legislature called by Governor Brad ley authorized the Issue of Interest bearing warrants and In the course of two years they were all taken up and the treasury was on a cash basis one more At the same time a uond a of 500000 was also authorized that bond issue was paid off under Governor Beckhams administration It is contended with much reason that the unusually large appropriation- made by the legislature two years ag were In a large measure responsible for the present deficit and that if the Interest bearing warrants are Issued so the states creditors will not have to discount their debt and no unusual appropriations are made this session the deficit will disappear in two years oven without a bond Issue However the legislature is liable to adjourn without doing anything to relieve tho situation unless some of tho leaders OB both sides can get together and agree on some measure that will meet with the approval of the senate and house- S t Ono of the three good roads bills that wore Introduced In the senate by Senator Bosworth has passed that body though It was bitterly fought bISenator Thomas and several others Time bill passed provides for time esItablishment regulation and mainten anco of public roads and defining the duties of the atate road commission aid creating the office of county road engineer In each county The other two companion bills provide for the creation of a department of good roads In the state government andI provides for a special tax of Ii cents on the 100 to create a road fund to help tho counties build good roads Those who oppose these measures sayI they will result In all sorts of confu sion and entanglements and that tho additional h cent tax will cause the widest dissatisfaction The friends of the measure however say there is no danger of entanglements and troubleI and that the masses of the people are clamoring for better roads that theI only real opposition to tho bills comoI from those counties that already have splendid roads They further say that these splendid roads in central Ken tucky were In many instances built with state aid and that these coun ties now are opposed to allowing tho poorer counties tho same benefits that they themselves had many years ago Whether the bills will pass tho house or not can not be safely foretold yet but there is no denying the fact that the bill providing for an increase In the state tax rate to 65 cents on the 100 will be unpopular especially about the time tho taxes are being collected S Tho movement to permit women to vote in all school elections seems to havo met with fatal discouragement in the house as tho bill giving them that privilege has been reported unfavorably by the committee The leading women of the state have been hero in largo numbers from time to time this winter urging and talking with legislators in tho interest of the trill
