hereafter compel newspapers to enforce business principles in their circulation department j This now order is intended to reduce the volume of secondclass mail matter made up of newspapers and magazines which tho gov eminent now carries at one cent a pound entailing big annual loss to the poUoillco department It practically limits the use of till mails at these cheap postage rates to papers sent to bona iide subscribers paid in advance and publishers will bo lined fourcents for every poutft of mail sent out in violation of the regulations In order that the now rule may not bo harsh in its application1 the poatoilico department has provided that a reasonable time ahall be allowed to publishers to secure renewals of subscriptions before cutting off subscribers whosotimo has expired or who are in arrears This time allowance is fixed at three months for daily papeijond year1 for weekly papers and four months for monthly magazine Under the operation of this rule publishers will be fined an amount equal to tlio transient postage rates four cents a ponnd for every uily newspaper sent to a subscriber over three months in arrears and for every weekly newspaper sent to a subscriber over one year in arrears This innilnsubscribers should bo cut off at tho expiration of their subscriptions la tho past it often happened that subscribers who word curried over the time for which they hud paid cdmplained because they were not discontinued while others who wero promptly yit oft fit expiration took offense and felt that this was an imputation on tlnir honestyor ability to pay Time now regulation establishes for tho future a busi iess like ens torn that is fair to publishers and subscribers and relieves the nint ter of embarrassment to either sideIThere is no doubt that the pfd custom was abused Ijy publishers and subscribers bythe former in sending papers and bills to people who wished to discontinue and by tho latter in accepting and reading papers and then refusing to hay for them on thegroandKhat the sub Rcriptions had expired 1 In compliance with the now law The News will at once send out bills and renewals notices to all nail subscribers who maya in arrears and hopes to have prompt responses in order that thereof may be no violation on our part In the past we have never used these columns to urge payment subscriptions or arrearages but we believe the new postal regula tions requiring that all subscribers ho cut off if one year in arrears on penalty of forfeiture of second class postage privileges justifies this nditoral explanation which will bo run in several issues iti order that allour mail subscribers may understand the new order of things ADVERTISED LETTERS Remaining Uncalled for In Jackson Postoffice List of letters remaining uni claimed in

Stop with Hart Brothers at the Reed Hotel when in Lexington r1 Langley Is Popular- The following concerning our Congressman lion John W Langley is quoted from a recent issue of the Baltimore American When John W Langley took his sent the other day as a brand new Congressman from Kentucky could do something that prob ably no new member of Congress- in the history of this nation was over able to do Mr Langley could have walked up to three out of every four of the representatives called them by name and in turn been greeted by them with the cordiality extended to an old friend Crossing over to the Senate ho would have manifested an oven wider acquain tance as that body has undergone fewer changes than the House The reason of this wido scope of personal knowledge lies in the fact that up to a lato period Langley has been chief clerk rind disbursing oflicer of the Census Bureau and by reason of this office he has had much contact with the lawmakers A more popular federal olhciul was never known and thoughrecognized as a staunch Republican the Democrats were equally fond of him Ho ran for Congress in a mountain district of Kentucky and made a great campaign riding horseback over the rough hills and meeting the people face to face Ills talks wero informal andcon tined to questions in which the mountain people were vitally in terested lIe is jolland com panionabla and a born leader of men and pretty soon though the district was Democratic John Langley had captured it The count showed him victor by 900 majority Wherever Langley went ho made friends galore He is a man of splendid ability and is in a better position k do good service for his constituents than any member of the Kentucky del egation 1 Blanton Recommended Tilden Bjanton of Lambric has been recommended to the

said petitions will be circulated throughout Kentuckand the United States irt the hope that thousands of persons will sign asking Gov Willson to issue a pardon Ten of the jurors signed an affidavit stating that from the ovidondc they do not believe Jim Howard fired the shot that killed Goebel ilnotsoon as ho can devote his attention to the matter Gov Willson will carefully review the record in

A DEADLOCK Open Rumors of a Break From the Beckham Ranks Creates Engrossing Situation at the Opening of Ken tuckys General Assembly Frankfort Ky Jan 7For many reasons the present session of the Kentucky legislature promises to bo a memorablo one and Kentucky has had several memorable legislatures par tlcularly In 1884 In 180C and In 1900 Of course the chief Interest centers In the race for United States senator and the posslbllltyof a deadlock Gov ernor Bechham Is the nominee of tho Democratic party for senator but thero have been persistent rumors that Domo of tho Democratic senators and representatives will not vote for him Tho legislature In Joint ballot stands 73 Democrats to 5 Republicans tho senate having 22 Democrats and 16 Republicans while tho house has 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans If as ninny as four Democrats refuse to vote for neckham a deadlock will re suit It has been frequently asserted In tho newspapers that this Demo cratic legislator or that one would not support DccUham but so far no ona has openly announced that he would vote ailrut him Th J14 solo tar senator will not betaken till Jan 21 although the legisla turo convenes on Jan 7 The senate and house will vote separately In their respective chambers on Jan 21 and will meet In Joint session In tho house tho following day to ratify the election- If someone was elected or to take an other ballot if no one was elected the day before Each side Is warily watching tho other now and neither side Is doing any talking as to plans but each is willing to take advantage of any mis take made by tho others Tho de plorable feature of It all Is that It Is admost sure to bring about much bit terness If a deadlock comes There will bo a number of contests for seats in the houso filed by both Republicans and Democrats Those will bo fought over bitterly as tho house is so close that one vote may decide tho fate of every contestant for a seat for if one contestant Is seated ho will naturally voLesJh his carty to unseat others There seems to bo no chance of a deadlock in the senate but that body win have Its troubles as well as the house if all Indications are true In 189G when W J Worthington Rep was lieutenant governor the majority of the senators were Democrats so they passed a rule providing for a special committee to select all tho standing committees of tho senate Theretofore It had been the custom for the lieutenant governor who Is ox offlelo president of the senate to appoint all tho committees probably for tho reason that tho lieutenant gover nor and tho majority In the senate had always been of tho same political part y Rlp ce the war One of the measures that will be bitterly fought over this session will bo tho bill or bills providing for redls tilctlng the state into senatorial and ropresentatlve districts The Democratic court of appeals declared the restricting of two years ago uncon stitutional because of the unequal div 1 lou of population some of the dig tricts havln 12000 while others had 40000 The court went further and said tho present districts were In re ality unconstitutionally made up but M the elections In them had been held for so many years the act cre sting them would not now be declared unconstitutional because It would be cgalnst public policy It is always a lard tight to pass a satisfactory re flaTrlctlng bill oven whore one political party has a big majority but it will be especially so this year because of che almost even division of the two riartloa In tho legislature As tho pres ent districts are considered to be to the advantage of the Democrats it is presumed the Republicans will make the hardest fight to have new districts created that will give a more equal division of population C It was expected two years ago thIn tho present legislature would be able to hold Its sessions In the handsome now statehouse but no provision has yet been made for furnishing tho now building and making It habitable The building Itself Is very near completion it being all under roof except a small part of the center domo and much of the interior work Is completed It Is oxlcSa nJIWtllltpje nnitih r t propriation of 250000 to pay for fitI ting up tho now structure In proper style with desks fileboxes carpets furniture etc and the present legislature will bo asked to make the ap propriation for that purpose Tho to tal appropriations so far made for tho new capitol amount to 1250000 which will complete It all but the furnishings According to the estimates financial officers It willof tho states to Increase the ratenot be necessary of taxation to complete the now build Ins as no Increase was made when appropriations were madethe other and especially as thoro Is over a million dollar balance In the state treasury now Governor Wlllson has been having a strenuous time since his inauguration a month ego and what with office seekers nightriders and the com ing of the legislature ho has not been treading the primrose path of dalliance The governor has some fads but they are fads that are tempered with common sense For Instance he says ho will appoint no man to office who applies for It and simply signs the Initials of his first name That is J II Smith will not bo considered at all but John II Smith will be lie says he has quit talking politics now and Is trying earnestly to bo the governor for all the people and using ev cry means in his power to enforce tho peoples laws that are on tho statute booksMuch has been said about tho gpv ornor being placed on tho national ticket next year as a candidate for vice president but he positively forbids any discussion of tho subject He says ho has been elected to servo as governor for four years and if he lives ho purposes to carry out the contract made with the people last election dayProbably tho hardest nut the new governor will have to crack will be tine settlement of the tobacco situation and the arrest and conviction of the night riders who have been destroying tobacco warehouses In Hopklnsvllle and Russellvllle It is tho general belief that under the present laws it will be almost impossible to Indict or convict tho night riders because the memo bershlp of tho tobacco associations is so large that It will be almost impossi ble to get a Jury that will not have several friends and fellowmembers of the night riders on it This being the case the present legislature will be asked to evolve a new law by which that class of lawbreakers may be reached and punished Governor Will Sons recommendations along this line in his message to the legislature are strong and to the point lie seems to have sot his heart on solving this question and Is determined that the law shall bo upheld and every mans property and life made secure from lawless groups of men who operate at night behind masks e Governor Wlllson has announced that he Is In favor of all tho state In stitutions being managed by nonpar tlsan boards and says ho will not rec ommend that the legislature make any appropriation for any educational institution that Is maintained by the state and managed by trustees who all belong to the same political party As an Instance he cites the State College nt Lexington nil of its trustees being Democrats It Is proper to state how ever that those who are In position to know state that while tho trustees of the State College are all Democrats a majority of the teachers and In structors are Republicans so that evens matters up In a measure and re lieves It of the odium of being known as a partisan college e e The temperance question will be another factor that will enter largely Into this legislative session A bill to extend the present county unit law so as to include every county In tho state Irrespective of the size of tho cities It contains will be presented early In the session and It Is believed the bill will be enacted The liquor representatives will fight such a moan ore to tho last Jetts Creels Mrs

taxation- In considering tho subject of state taxes In the brief time I have been able to give It since my mind has been fully aroused to Ms Importance I have como la UinM very much the wisdom of our present method of as iestng Htuto tuxes Section P of Article 7 of our elate constitution Is ns follows Tho legislature shall provide by law a uniform slid equal rate of assessment and taxation on nil property In the state according to Its value In money This Ig tho general I roportrtn tiuf H Kentucky Too above constitutional provision Is similar to that of many of time western states 1111onJollI1 a system If taxation which has been In prnc tlcally all the states of the Union It requires the application of the snfUe rules of taxation to forms of propert totally different In character Most of Ihq OldeF states guEtm qi feW Yorl Pqiinectlput Massachusetts New Jer toy and Pennsylvania have cotwUW latin which impose nu restraint on the power of the legislature or very little more restraint than that Imposed by tho federal constitution Those states have Developed systemof taxation uipre tq larmqqy WitI modern cqndj- tigng The attempt to tax nil kinds of property by the same rules has In all times and In all countries imposed heavier burdens upon rural district than cities nnd In a largo degree has measured the tax to be paid by each Qltlgen by the amount of his coq eumptlon rather than liv the i ppn tunlty he enjoys to acquire woaltl under time protection of the state The plan adopted by our n lgh bore Oregon Is to apportion the state tax In proportion to the revenue raised by each county Oregon maije tpc p11 stake of not omit tho principle to Its logical conclusion The tax should be apportioned In pro portion to the entire revenue raised by each county and all the taxing dls tricks within each county It Is very easy to see that the more IdBhly develop RIlll morp densely populated a county may be the nior money It needs for local purposes In proportion to its taxable values and tho greater Is the power to pay taxes The tax apportioned In this manner will shift from the poorer and remote rural counties the burden they now hear nail Impost It on the lPoro thickly settled unit prosperous eoqn ties This change would do away with tho universal temptation to un dervalue property In order to shift tin state tax to other communities A study of the experience of other states shows that one of tho greatest evils has been this Incentive to undervalue U produces Inequality and dlssatlsfac Slop rrIlot cjownrisiit fraud1 The Ohio 8tat orange In Ohio they ore proposing an amend mont to the constitution that will per mlt ofa classification of time sources of revenue such as Is now In effect In Pennsylvania The difficulty with the Ohio constitution Is exactly similar tQ that In KentUGHy They ors pro posing there an amendment to too constitution which will make It read this way jlaxes shall be levied at a uniform rate upon all property of the same class The Ohio constltu tlon now requires that taxes shall be uniform upon all classes of property the provision being similar to that ol tho constitution of Kentucky The Honorable F A Dcrthlcjf commenting upon the proposed amend went to the constitution laid To pull up every stako tii our constitution seems heroic treatment and If done would throw upon the people added responsibility In tho selection of their representatives It classifica lion is to be the plan adopted It should be left to a commission of at least five members appointed by the governor one from each of the four sisters whose combined efforts have made us all we areone from manu facture one from mining one from commerce ono from agriculture This board should be reinforced by tho ap pointment of a member of wellknown Integrity and great legal ability The farmers are not committed to the idea of classification but we wish to Join In the study of tax revision The Ohio State Grange assembled In annual session December 11 to 13 1906 by a unanimous vote expressed the desire of an organized body of taxpayers fifty thousand strong to co operate with all other Interests In de vising a tax system that shall bo
