great deal print ed in the papers recently about the feud in Breathitt referring to Jackson as the feud capital etc etc There has never been any rend here Dr Cox was killed on a moonlight night April 13 1902 while going from his office to his home James Cockrill was killed while standing on the Card wellcorner talking to sonic friends on July 21 1902 James B Mar cum was killed while standing in the front door of the court house talking to Capt B J Ewen on May 4 1903 All three of these men were members of strong and influential families of this county While the families and friends ol these men knew practically to a certainty who were responsible fo their death and knew who actually committed the crimes yet not one of them over raised a hand to do violence to any of the accused preferring to go to the courts where all honest men should go for redress of ankindof gricv antes After the assassination of Mar cum the press of the State took the matter up and demanded an investigation The machinery of the courts were then set in motion and trials growing out of these crimes havo been hadh jlit eXlDJton Chester Mt Sterling nndat Bcattyvillo with what results the people are famil jar If there had been any feudal Mood in our people it surely would have cropped out during these four years struggles in the courts but toot a hand has been raised to do violenceAs have often said andstill say the great masses of our peo pie are lawabiding and peaceable citizens and want justice done be tween man and man alike The last three judges appointed by Beckham to sit in those trials hive appeared to do whatever the defendants wanted done yet the friends of the murdered men have not attempted any violence which we think is sufficient proof to show that they are not feudists When Judge Bill Carnes sat hero for four days last week rul ing invariably for the defense the friends of the prosecution didnot resort to violence but appealed to the highest court to stop the farce All our people want are mpnr that judges honest juries and fair tials They do not want to fight und will not unless forced to do so ni a last resort It is a slander on them to call them feudists They ao entitled to fair treatment and should have it- Iarrlage Licenses The following marriage license have been issued since our last publication SpicerbMay Cundiff both of Oakdale L rkin

New YorkiAa the tug quitted her moorings and began her voyage up tlio river Duncan caught a glimpse of Captain UallamHI form hurrying toward the most Immediately the tug began to plunge In perilous fashion thrusting ber head under the waves and shipping water enough to dampen the fires andIilmlnlsh steam pressure In n way threatened failure to the enterprise Failure In tam work of rescue was tho only thing that Gullford Duncan reared r Ho had already had the hatches securely battened down so that no water could find Its way Into tho hold but when ho saw that water was rapidly rushing with every sea Into tho fur nace room threatening with extinction tilt fires that could alone give power to the vessel ho called one of the deck hands to the wheel and Instructing an ns to tho course to be laid himself Hurriedly Inspected ship With the nld cf the other deck hand ho quickly re moved from bow to stern everything that had weight Then ho and the leek hand and fireman with goraenlJ from the engineer proceeded to shovel Iho coal supply from Its bunkers for ward of the fire room Into tho captains cabin aft of the furnaces This done the tug no longer ran her prow Into and under the tremendous teas but role over them Instead ship ping no further water Then Duncan returned to the pilot Iwuso and a few minutes later reached tho Imperiled fleet of coal barges There havoc had already begun Throe barges bad gone down and two men had been drowned The rest of the barges were riding so uneasily that their seams were opening and the wa ter that must presently swamp them was finding Its Insidious way through their sides and bottoms When the tug appeared all the men 01 board the coal barges clamored piteously to bo taken off at once Stand to your duty mend shouted Duncan Dont be cowards Do your part of tho work nnd won save all of Ian and all the coal Only obey orders promptly and Ill be responsible fpr 1ie rest Go to the pumps and an aver every command promptly lie then ordered flaming torches kin lied on every barge and In tho light thus created ho was able to tow one after another of tho coal boats Into that harbor of safety In which the tug cap Lain should have moored them Aurlng tho day before tho men meanwhile pumping to keep the water down Then with his clothing drenched and frozen stiff upon him ho steered the tug back to her landing place through the now receding storm Kennedy tho tug captain was there waiting As Duncan came ashore Ken nedy said menacingly c It I get my discharge for this Ill with1ccnse a The ice Incased and half frozen young man made no reply Ho aim ply hurried ashore As ho mounted to tho top of the levee though It was only a little after daylight Duncan encountered Captain Will Hallam who stood there waiting forhlm Go to tho hotel said the employer Tvo ordered a piping hot bath for you F there and a biasing wood fire Theroa nothing like a wood flro after a chill as such ns yoavo bad When you get 4 ood and warm go to bed When you iake naturally telegraph to tho office ijr me and well breakfast together Ive ordered the breakfast The hotel cecpcr think It will bankrupt him or mike his fortune to furnish It but that Joesnt matter Get warm and get some sleep Slocp as long as you can I dont think I care for sleep an iwered the half frozen and wholly ex lausted young man But would you iilud sending Dutch John to me at the ote1 Id like to have him rub mo Iowa with some Turkish towels after ziy hot bath Tell him I have a dollar or him if ho rubs mo well That fellow Is certainly a new rand muttered Captain Uallnm to ilmself as ho walked away up tho evee but hes trlplo X for endurance and modesty and courage and ill the rest of It What a fighter ho rust have been Id like to see him In i hot battle It I were bullet proof my icif Ill bet bonds to brickbats ho got ill the fight there was In them out of Jls men nut why doesnt bo look out for his own Interests I wonder Im lUll paying him the salary ou which ho ccgnn Any other man In my employ who could have dono onetenth of what 10 has dono would have mado mo pay three times as much by this time But lie potltlvely refuted to obey Duncan order t thin thats the reason Its Just bo- rauso he la thAt sort that ho hasnt lalaryBythe nsklngl I never did such a thing Is nil ray life it will startle people out of their wits but I 1ctore startling and u for their 1 I r i t Obviously young Duncans perform slice of that stormy night hall awnk sued Captain Uallnm to enthusiasm lIe was not much given to euthuM urns but this ono was thoroughly genuine Yes by George be said between his clinched teeth Ill multiply tlmtI fellows salary by three and let tho of flee people wonder Perhaps It will give them n hint No It wont Or at least they wont tnke n hint But anyhow Ill do It If only for what tho newspapers call dramatic effect Entering tho ofllcc where at this hour the clerks were assembling Cap lain Ilollam said In his figurative fash ion That fellow Duncan hna got more ross In his gearing wheels than all the est or you put together You call him I freak you call him eccentric because le Isnt like you Now let me tell you mat thats a sort of eccentricity that youll do well to cultivate Tho less you are like yourselves and tho more youre like hint the better It will bo for you lie thinks You dont Ho does all he can You do as little ns you can lIe shall have his reward IIo shall have a salary three times that of the best man In the otflce And more than that he shall have the right to command hero Whatever orders he gives shall bo obeyed Just JIll If hoy were my own Ho Is your model to Imitate so tAr nu you can But most of you cant That was the very longest speech that Captain Will Hnllam had ewer made In his life It was not without effect It did not Inspire nny of the clerks to rash endeavor or to a more conscientious service But It mndp ov cry one of them nn Implacable enemy of Guilford Duncan nnd Inflamed ev err one of them with nn Insatiable de Biro to Injure him whenever occasion might offer CHAPTER IX did you come to do that HOWThat was the first question Hnllum fired at Dun after tho hotol waiter had quitted tho room to bring a further supply of coffee and broiled bacon Why Its simple enough answered Duncan with n touch of embarrassment In hit tone You see I was up there yesterday gauging coal I know the barges were anchored In n danger ous position and so when the storm broke there wasnt anything else to do but get Into my clothes and send the tug up there to the rescue But It wasnt your business to look ifter the coal up In the bend tDuncan slowly drank three sips of coffee before answering that eagerly questioning remark Then he leaned forward and said slowly nnd with em phasisI It to be my business nnd my duty as well as my pleasure to do ill that I can to promote the Interest jf the man who employs me But that was a risky thing to do You took your life In your hands you knowI suppose I did but thats a small natter There were twenty other lives n danger And whnt Is one mans life when there Is a duty to be done Weve all got to die some time Captain Hnllam did not utter the thought that was In him That thought wasWell of all the queer men I have ivcr had to deal with you are certainly tho queerest Still I think I under stand you and thats queerer still What do you wont Duncan for last nights work Duncan looked nt his companion for ialf n minute before nuswerlng Then ad said I want that tug captain of yours Discharged Why Because hea n coward and an ut terly unfit man Human life may de pend upon his courage at any moment Mill he has no courage Is that nil you want Yes Thats all Why dont you demand nn Increase 01 your salary Anybody else would But perhaps you dont caro for a big gee salary Youre a queer sort you knowOh yes I care very much for an increase answered Duncan Then why didnt you seize upon tho pportunlty to ask for 11 Must I tell you frankly I wish you would It might help mo to understand you Well It Is simple enough You gave mo employment when I was desperately In need of It I should be an In Irate If I did not consider your Inter MH In all that I do I think I ought Co have a larger salary than you are sow paying inc I think I earn It nnd t has been my purpose to ask for It when the proper time should come Then why havent you been In a lurry to ask for It now There couldnt bo a better time Pardon me but I cannot agree with rou It so happens that Just at this moment I have several very Important matters of yours In my charge You lave Intrusted them to mo and they save come so exclusively under my Control that nobody else not even you iould conduct them to a successful Issue so well as I can Under such lrcumstances of course I cannot make any personal demand upon you without Indecency To do so w5uld be to take idvantugo of your necessities It would amount to a threat that If you refused my demands I would abandon these en terprises und leave you to get out of all their difficulties ns best you could Dont you sea captain Hnllam that under such circumstances I simply could not make n demand upon you for moro salary or for anything else of personal advantage to myself No I dont see It at nil and yet somehow I seem to understand you It I were In your place Id regard these rlrcumstnnces ns trump cards and Id lead them for nil they are worth So would nny other mnu In the Mississippi rnlley or anywhere else I think That may perhaps bo so nnd I suppose I am queer ns you say But tone it would seem n despicable thing to take advantage of the fact that you teed me in these affairs of yours You Dave bidden mo bo frank I will be so When I camo to Cairo I sought work If the hard physical kind at tbo small ivagcs that such work commands You I lulckly gave mo bettor work and ger pay than I had expected to earnI 1rouK Rdcncc Whenyou irTiruurllt liio IIMrssense iieir greatness Presently I discovered hat while you are always deferential toward them you are distinctly their superior In Intellect and lu your grasp f affairs You allow them to think that they lire your musters while In toot you never fall to have your way ind to compel them nnd the many millions of other peoples money whoso aso they control to your own pur JOSCfl At this point Hallam uttered n low huckle A little Inter I discovered Another net continued Duncan It slowly Inwued upon my mind thnt you put ine forward In your conferences with hem because you valued my suggcs ilons and my Initiative more than you lid theirs Thinking of that I cnuio it last to tho conclusion that 1 must in tact bo superior to these men in hose qualities Unit originate oxocuto ichlorc otherwise with your gonlus tor affairs you would hnvo suppressed 310 nnd listened to them Attain HiiJJam eliucklctl Then another thought occurred to me Tho only reason why thoy can ixccuto plans that I conceive while I Qiot Is that they harp considerable money of tbolr own nnd command of auich greater sums not their own ivlille I have neither They hnvo the qqU old tho inntpiInlai have neither 1ho clumsiest mechanic who bus tools and materials to work with can do hlngs that the most skillful mechanic who has neither tools nor materials tnnuot do 111 liavo decided therefore to possess myself of tools and materials In order that I may mnke myself a mauler workman nnd do my part In time great nation building enterprises of the time Ami country Would you mind explaining what you mean by that Interrupted Hal lamWhat Is going on here In the west does not Impress you in the same way In which It Impresses mo said Dun rail You men of affairs nro just now beginning to do the very greatest work of nation building that has ever been done since time began but you ore so close to your work that you do not appreciate its colossal proportions You have no perspective In that I have the advantage of you May I go on and set forth tho whole of my thought Yes certainly I want to hear Go on Well then let me explain and Illus irate A little while ngo in gOlllg over your accounts I discovered that the cotton and grain you shipped from Cairo to New York must be five times transferred from one car to another flint entailed enormous nnd needless expense in addition to tho delay A few weeks ago I suggested to a confer once of railroad nabobs nt your house that you should organize a lino of through freight cars which should be loaded at Cnlro St Louis Chicago or anywhere else lu time west nnd hauled through to New York Boston or anywhere else In the enst without breakingI bulk The saving of expense obvious that you put n hundred thou sand dollars Into tho line and the rail road magnates made specially good terms for tho hauling of tho car You expect and will get dividends from your investment Tho railroad men see profit for their companies In tho oper aUon of the line That Is all that you and they foresee of advantage In ray view that Is the very smallest part of the matter IIor do you mean Why taking cotton as a basis of reckoning this through lino system of transportation owned Independently iflho railroads will make an important saving In the cost of raw mute terlals to the owners of New England mills They will run more spindles mad set more looms a going than they would have done without tho through lines cheapening of raw material they will pay better wages and reap arger profits They will produce more roods and they will sell them at a smaller price The farmer In the west will pay less for his cotton goods and ret more for his grain because of the through lines cheapening of transport tatlon Ho and his wife and his chil Item will dress better at less cost than they otherwise could do Bear lu mind that the lines cars will carry other things than cotton Tho people of tho Last will get their breadstuffs und their DQCOU and their beef tar cheaper be nuso of Its existence than they other wise could Now again a little while ago you were In Washington You found It necessary to execute certain papers and to file them In Chlcot county Ark aeforo n certain fixed date You ordered me by telegraph to prepare the papers and bring them to you In Wash ington lu the speediest way possible In order that I might carry thorn within the time limit to their destination I itorted for Washington within five minutes by the quickest possible route preparing the pairs on tho train I lad to change cars five times between Cairo and Washington and seven times more between Washington add Memphis All that will presently be chang id The railroads of this country to gether with tho new ones now build ing will presently bo consolidated Into treat systems Transportation both is to freight and as to passengers Is now done at rctnl and the cost Is mormons It will after a while bo lone nt wholesale and at a proportion tie reduction In cost Now the thought that is In my mind Is this We have got to build this great nation anew upon lines marked out by the events of the last few years The war has been costly enormously costly It has saddled the country With a debt of about 3000000000 be tides the Incalculable waste but It has awakened a great national self con clousness which will speedily pay off time debt and Incidentally develop the neverso far ns they aro undeveloped or only partially developed lie mainly lu the west and south It Is our duty to develop them Tho government Is building a railroad to the Pacific coast That when It is done will annex n vast and singu larly fruitful country to the Union Why do you not Include the south In your reckoning asked Hallam- I do Under the now conditions tho sutb will produce more cotton than It o ever did and Its coal tutu Iron resourced will bo enormously developed but tbo- south Is for the present handicapped by dUturbed conditions and u disorganized labor Hyftcni It will bo long before that rogluii fchixll tuke Its full share In notional development In what I call nation building Pimlou me for wandering so fur yonlintthe work that you mind your associates are doing Now I wish nnd Intend toIdo my share lu that work To that HhU do you not include the south tn your rtckonlngt I must have money of my own and that control of other peoples money which Nues only to men who have money of their own I dont core n fig for money for Its own sake I want It as n too with which I may do my work- I think I understand you answered Hnllam after n tow minutes reflection You fthnll have the tools You have already put away twothirds of your salary from month to month I
