Republi cans of tho state have been hoping over since tho election last fall tho choosing of W 0 Bradley an U S Senator happened last Friday but because of tho charge of a deal there line not been tho rejoicing that was to have been expected It Is not likely there will bo until tho County Unit 11111 about which tho stories have centered line finally been passed and so any doubt about the meth ods by which the honor was won line been cleared away Senator Dradloy will be one of the ablest of the sanatora In Washington and will do his work In a way to Ii a credit to the state lie Is the first Republican Senator from this suite for yours and his long service to the party has entitled him to any reward which It can honorably give him It Is a flue tiling for It to be able to pay tho debt In tills way Tho only cloud on the sky Is the charge that his election means the defeat of the County Unit Hill This line pawed the HOUBO and now roaU In tho Sonato Thero la no way by which tho Republicans can otoapo tho responsibility 1C It falls to lass for thoro are enough Democrat known to bo In favor of It to paw It If the Republicans help The fact that the Democrats are In the major ity does not effect this for the nom ocrat never promised to pass the bill and tho Ropublleonc did It Is up to tho Republicans to dear their skirts of the charge by passing tho bill If they do It will confound all their crlUos If they do not paw tho bill the party will suffer Flat It will have tailed to awry out tho promtoo which did more than anything else to help it win In the second plaee It

4paro from now Dcckbam Is not doing thin bccauro of any lore either for temperance or tho jwoplo and ho has often shown that ho dooa not core for either but many people will not seo this and tho failure to pass tho County Unit 11111 will give him a great chance to get into power nsjnlnBvon If tho legislature tails in Its duty there would still be a hope for tho Republican party however for wo have a good governor who would probably call a special session for the passage of that one bill The Citizen Is earnestly hoping that the charges will bo disproved as It believes that only thru tho Republican party can Kentucky get tho reforms she so much needs and knows that any failure by tho party to live up to Its promises will cause it to ba driven from power for years BRADLEY FOR FAIRBANKS Following his election as Senator W O Bradley camo out In a state ment Indorsing Fairbanks for Pres ident saying that Taft could not bo elected and blaming all defeats the Republicans have over sustained in Kentucky on the Federal office holders This was not unexpected as tho men who havo been helping him most In his fight In tho legislature have been Fairbanks men Of courso Its always easy to blame tho Federal office holders for anything and to say that It Is only they that are for Taft but this overlooks all the other things which havo helped to defeat tho Republicans such as tho killing of Goobel and also the tact that tho men who are for Fairbanks have been office holders but are now outside Also Taft has won agalnt the op position of tho office holders in other states and has shown that he has the people really behind him It Is not likely that Kentucky Republicans are so out of touch with tho rest of tho party that it has taken tho office holders to drive them whero the rest of the party has gone gladly WEALTH IN WATER The streams whose headwaters lie among the peaks of tho Southern Appalachians flowing westward to tho Mississippi or eastward to tho Atlantic furnish opportunities for the development of water power so wonderful that the smallness of their A Lilt AUNII NOW FOR THE COUNTY UNIT BILL The deadlock at Frankfort was broken last Friday by the election to the U S Senate of William O Bradley Four Democrats Senators H S McNutt and Albort Charlton and Representatives IL W Lil lard and Chris Mueller were the ones who really elect ed Bradley The Citizen extends cougratulations to the new Senator and is sure thatjie will fill his new of fice with great ability But it is well known that in politics men give nothing for nothing Election to the Senate is a thing aroundwhich centers almost half of the corruption in American politics and many a seat has been bought at the cost of political honor or hard cash There have for weeks been rumors which The Citizen could not believe but published that there was to be a deal where by Bradley was to go to the Senate by the aid of whis key Democrats and the County Unit Bill to which the Republican party has pledged its honor was to be de feated by Bradley Republicans Now Bradley has some to the Senate by the aid of whiskey Democrats The people of Kentucky and par ticularly the Republicans of the state are asking this question What was the price for which McNutt Charlton Mueller and Lillardall agents of the whis key ring which the people are fightingwhat was the price for which they voted for Bradley a Republican who has declared his support of the County Unit Bill Till that question is answered it would be unsafe to congratulate either the state or the Republican party The passage of the County Unit Bill would be the best answer to this question as it would fulfill the promise of the Republican platform and prove untrue the charges the Democrats are making The Citizen on the assurance of the leading Republicans expects the passage of that bill use for 1Mb purpose is little less than marvelous Tho position of these rivers as prime factors in the Industrial growth of tho South Is well recognized and the power de velopment that has taken place in tho region thus watered Is unparallel ed in any other portion of tho United States Yet the amount of power used is small when compared with the Immense resources of the region Engineers of tho United States Gcloglcal Survey after making a careful study of the streams the quantity of water they carry and fall In various portions of their courses havo estimated that they afford at least about 2800000 horse power at least 60 per cent of which or 1400000 horsepower Is available If auxiliary power wore provided to supplement thci water in short seasons 2 times thlo amount might bo profitably uUllzed and If tho flood waters could bo storey and the flow of tho streams properly regulated the power might bo Increased from three to fifteen times It In evident therefore that an estimate of the present value of these water pow ers based on 60 per cent of the min- Imum indicated horsepower has so many factors of safety that it is very conservativeAn low average of tho present rental valuo of water power Is 20 per horsepower per year Tho rental value of 1100000 horsepower would therefore amount to 23000000 which la equivalent to an income of 3 per cent on a capital of 933000 000 Tho southern mountains own Continued on Third rage W nUJl1 1 NEGRO PRAISE MEETING On account of the recent gift of

DAUGHTER An unusual honor is planned for Mrs Homer J Leavitt W J Bryana daughter Colorado whore she lives is a state where women vote and so women can bo sent to the National Convention and It is now practically certain that Mrs Leavltt will bo one of the delegates It Is also likely that she will make one of the speech es seconding her fathers nomination and sho may mako tho principal speech nominating him Then of courso she would bo appointed on the committee to toll him of his nom ination It lees not yet been decided whether or not ho will appoint her Secretary of War FEWER CONGRESSMENIt is likely that after the next census in 1910 Congress will find It necessary to reduce the number of Congressmen from some of the Eastern States Tho lower houso now has 391 members and all agree that Is about as many as can work well The population of the country is growing fastest in the West and therefore there will be relatively fewer Con gressmen from tho East la the next Congress In order to keep the total number from being too large there fore it will ba necessary to cut down some of tho Eastern delegations and to increase considerably the number of voters to a Congressman BRYAN CHARGES BRIBERY Bryan in a recent speech has charged that the railroads are buying up delegates to tho National Convention who will bo opposed to him FINE BAND CONCERT Tho Band Concert last night at tho Chapel was one of the most delight ful ever given here and the perform ance of the boys reflects the greatest credit on their new leader Claro CanfIeld and amply Justifies

its employes to bo settled at once TOBACCO WAR Tho tobacco troubles have become much moro acute in the last week and there is danger of even greater violence In the first place the Society of Eq uity Nows which has all along said that the society had nothing to dp with the nIghtrIdIng said that tho hauling of tobacco to market at night was tho one great thing the Society sad to contend with and that It was the cause of the night riding Then there have been besides the usual attacks on peoplo and houses manyxthreats of what would happen to peo plo that planted tobacco this year and In particular W D Hawkins for mar president of the tobacco growers loclcty has published a very hot let or in which ho says that the plan ers will be made to suffer all kinds j Jf things Thus the Society has practically accepted responsibility tOT ho lawlessness The violence Is now oelng met by the Independents with hreats that if there Is any moro trou ble tho barns of the association men will be burned etc This has helped to quiet things cnly a little but there Is likely to be real warfare In some aunties soon And yet tho peopleIout there like to talk about the loss feudists Tho deal which was on between the tobacco trust and the Burley society for the sale of the whole crop has fallen thru again but there Is still talk of some other big buyer taking It all Meanwhile the Burley Tobacco Society has been sued for back taxes on 100000000 worth oC tobacco THREE KILLED IN FIGHT John Hamilton James Bowles and Richard Splcor were killed and Geo Frazier fatally wounded In a fight at the Congleton and Williams Brothers camp on Rose Creek three miles from Evelyn The trouble was over a quarrel between their children POWERS FOR CONGHESSCa lob Powers is planning to oppose D C Edwards for nomination for Con gress in the 11th District this fall and has sent a letter to tho District Committee asking that it postpone the call for a convention till after his next trial or till he be pardoned Ho says that ho la entitled to tho nomination and that they ought to wait The Chairman of the committee had failed to Issue a call but Mr Ed wards who has expected to ba re nominated as is the custom when men havo done as good work as ho has asked the members to meet and they will do so Saturday Many Republicans say that Powers should not run at this time because the Intro ductlon of politics into his trial has had very harmful effects on both sides and it he runs this evil will bo increased It is also argued that It would be bad to put oft the convention so long and would hurt

were held tauntingly at Ferdinands mouth every Indignity was showered on him There ii a glamor about a crown that dazzles oven a democrat let him boast his as ho may I am not ashamed to say I felt a strange horror as I saw the prince disdainfully facing his enemies In silence A vain monarch Ferdinand might be and no doubt his reign had not been altogether a wise one but his calm courage his kingly dignity awakened in me a romantic desire to dlo for him If need be The confusion In the hall below was so great that Locko and I could con verso freely and be In no danger of being overheard

were turned as one man toward Bratlnau who stood at the door and hAd held KP his hind for I Ellonec Never again shall I lice on tho faces of men a look of such fierce tense ex citement Some of them

yonder by the spiral staircase In front ol the tapestry Two candles behind hit bead will make him a fair mark for a revolver But the man who has been singled by fate concealed by darkness shall do his work In darkness No 6no will know to whom the lot has fallen then ho looked steadily at Kuhrt and GIngaJa if thero aro any here whoso courage falters and who would turn traitors at this late hour their treach ery will bo powerless For each man by his presence here shares the guilt of the rest No one can betray nn other himself Is It agreed It is agreed I they shouted But Kuhn of Macedonia was silent Is it agreed comrade Kuhn of MacedoniaYes 7 replied hoarsely moisten ing his parched lips with tho glass ho held in his hand If Ferdinand must die ho must- What You aro not convinced of the necessity of that I refuse to bo a puppet Starva to dance because you chooso to pull the string cried Kuhn his rage bursting the bounds of prudence I will neither be cajoled by lies nor frightened into obedienceNo questioned Starva softly but his smile was frightful Is It not a little late comrade to be making ex ruses at this hour I for one wish to know why you lied to me this morning I ha ro been tricked into this desperate move And who has tricked you demanded Starva with a gentleness that was more terrifying than his anger You told ma yesterday that Sir Mortimer Brett was dead Ho was I

first of all I would answer our fckeptlcal friend hero You say Kuhn that tho ambassador is living It I show him to you on his bier will you believe mo Prove to me what you say said Kuhn uneasily- I tell you that It is you who would havo been tricked had it not been for ray vigilance Sir Mortimer Brett has been dead these four days With his death ended tho schemes of tho woman the Countess

Improbablo to be believed without proof Kuhn replied turning to tho two men who sood wn eIther side of him- I shall show you the proof thug dered SUrva his patience at an end and that before you leavo

has said that tho mainten since of a macadam road should begin on the day tho road is completed Inn sense thin statement Is not far from the truth It Is usually not necessary to do much to tho macadam surface for a year or two but tho gutters cntch basin and culverts must bo kopt clean the weeds along the road sides cut or preferably pulled out by tho roats and tho small gullies In tile shoulders and on tho slopes filled be fore they become too largo It Is quito possible particularly It tho road was built In Uto tall of tho year and trap rock was used that loose Btonon will appear on tho surface UK first spring after tho road Is opened to travel Those need not alarm tho road official They should bo picked up and stacked for future titc It lit astonishing how a tow looso stones on the surface of a mac adam road will have tho appearance of a groat number so that tho unin formed always think and frequently state that tho road Is going to pieces It Is a fact that often such stones will disappear Into the macadam after tho first rain Of course tho macadam will become worn In time and need repair No one can state accurately how much o tho macadam surface will wear oft a given time Thu dictum heard soften that tho macadam will wear down ono half Inch In a years uio la a fallacy The length of life of a properly built macadam road depends especially upon tho volume and kind of truffle over It tho quality of tho atone of which It Is composed and Its peculiar fitness to resist the wear to which It Is subjected and also upon the climatic conditions of tho locality- A certain Massachusetts road built of an excellent quality of trap rock In tbD test manner needed resurfacing within two years after it was com plated The road was a portion of a main thoroughfare Just outside of ono of the largest cities In the state In addition to tho usual heavy trade to which such a road must bo sub jected It was used constantly by drays loaded with the products of several mills There are many mllea of state Standard Road Section roads in Massachusetts built of broken field stones and In use for ton or twelve years on which llttlo or no surface repairs have been needed In the first case mentioned It was probably a mistake to have used the mae adam typo of surfacing Vitrified paY lug brick or possibly blocks of gran Ito or sumo other bard material would have more nearly suited tho renditions In the latter case the field tones havo served their purpose ad mirably though some of tho roads ould and probably would havo been built of gravel had that material been jbtalnablo at a reasonable cost It was formerly hold that tho macadam surface should be restored an dually to its original thickness Doubt ems this practice was excellent so tar as the condition of tbo roads was concerned but such annual restoration s costly Tho present practice Is to Reap the surface always smooth to III any small holes or Incipient ruts ffhlch may appear but to do no resurfacing until the stones have worn iown at least to tho lower stratum of Jio macadam Too often tho resurfac nu Is delayed longer than economy pal considerations will Justify By the time tho upper course has- seen worn through the road Is usual y moro or less out of shape As be ore stated most of tho wear is near ho middle of tho road The sides tend a build up as the center wears down When the road Is In this condition It ibould be resurfaced with the best tone which Is available It should sot be necessary to put on moro than hrco Inches In tho center and the Itone at the sides may be spread aa Jilnly as Is possible Only a relatively small Tart of tho eturfaclng cost is Included In the manual cost per wile above stated but t is believed that an expenditure of jot exceeding 200 per mllo per year should be the maximum amount neces mry to provide for both ordinary and extraordinary repairs FAR- Independence HINTS and karma life are jynonymons terms Visit other successful dairymen

KEEPING GRINDSTONE TRUE In the Grinding of Toots Do Not Let Stone Get Grooved IThe average grindstone on tho farm sots pretty tough tlmo Tho softer tho stone the harder usage It receives ItB lot Is almost as hard as that of the bop on tho farm who has to turn It by the hour Tho grinding surface of the stone Is moro apt to be conravd than it Is to have an even faco or slightly beveled surface Tho concave condition comes from grinding axes scythes machine knlvos otc with their edges length wise of tho stone Instead of across It This can not bo helped In grinding some tools But suggests Prairie Farmer whon tho stone does nsnutno thIs shape making It impossible to grind a chisel or any flatedged tool decently It Is a good time to got it spade or two spades are usually dull and hold them on the stone until sharpened when the Irregularities In the surface of the stone will have die appearedA by the will should never bo left exposed to the ran The weight of the handle will always cause ono

Workers By DR G Librarian Boston Public Library rn TI Public Libraries Aid the Indus trial Workers HORACE WADLIN UK public library provides for the industrial worker the books that cat help him to letter work and higher pay It provides opportunities in this direction never before open not yet fully used and only partly appreciated Nevertheless ninny young men especially are using them to their own profit and ultimately to the benefit of the community Otters will follow their example as tho advantages become more clearly seoii It is unfortunately true that many persons have been drawn into our industries without much preparation They have so to speak drifted into them pressed by the necessity of earning u living without training in an industrial school mid under the conditions of the modern factory system even without such training as tboM apprentice system provided Their knowledge is limited to what they can pick up in the plate into which they drift They usually Iwcoiuo mere cogs in a machine without individual initiative doing ono of a few things well but without hope of advancing to the higher positions which require u foundation of technical knowledge only to bo obtained from books It goes without saying that the more a man knows the more usefnl he becomes and the knowledge and experience of tho past i crystallized in books The men who have advanced in the modern world which is distinctively a world of industry nre those who have supplemented native talent and keen observation of men and things by wide reading Formerly books were hard to obtain The boy Lincoln reading at night the coveted volumes by the light of tho log fire tho printers apprentice Franklin go ing without bread that ho might possess books these are typos of tho hurt conditions under which in the old days the influence of tho printed book operated to enlarge the individual life But today the public library practically everywhere supplies freely alt these indispensable aids Its attendants aa reedy to counsel and ad vise those who need help in selecting tho best books No one need hesitate to ask for such help The modern library is abovo all things a democratic institution and welcomes those who come to it with a serious purplise Besides the books of general information useful to every industrial worker the library supplies the special books slating to the various indus tries books on building on metal working on the textile processes on agriculture on industrial chemistry on tho new developments in electrici ty and many others These enable a workman to obtain a broad general view of his trade or of the sciences which ollect it a view he seldom sets in the shop or factory There are also hooks on design and on elementary mechanics adapted to tho comprehension of the ordinary workingman or woman not written in terms that presuppose a college education Many books especially those treating of the fine art side of industry are eo ox pensive that the wage earner cannot himself buy them oven if disposed to do so These the wellequipped public library supplies and it so displays and advertises its resources that thoso who would benefit by them inny know where and how they can be used The larger libraries in industrial towns also do useful work by menus of exhibitions and lectures on industrial subjects intended to improve the taste and raise the standard of skill among artisans Such for example are the three lectures on printing arranged in cooperation with tho Boston society of printers and given in the free lecturo course this winter at the Boston public library Eventually as the important plans for enlarging tho opportunities for industrial education in Massachusetts are carried into oiled public 11 braries will be found important adjuncts in supplying tho essential liter cry material required just as they already cooperate with the existing public schools There seems to be a general impression than city life is enervating alike to physical health find to morals that for rear bodily vigor and tile uncontaminated virtues you must go to the country There is a shopworn saying about the necessity of returning to the soil every third generation It is argued that like the fabled Antaeus the human race must be renewed and rejuvenated by actual contact with mother earth Isnt this really one of the pretty fictions that pass current because no one ever took the trouble to contradict them t A great deal is said about the dreadful nervous strain of life in a city and quite as much about the healthy wholesomeness of country life The natural vvay of settling the question of superiority would be by comparison of the product of the two environments Take a score of business and professional men 60 years of age and compare them with fanners of the same number of years The city men arc more erect more vigorous more alert mentally and physically They look five years younger than the fanners Compare their wives and the same conclusion is inevitable Despite the dreadful nervous strain the city people are younger in thought and feeling not to mention looks more alive to the interests Granted that the country life is the life of tranquillity and repose That is the trouble with its It lacks mental stimulus It is a life of dull quietude spent in a round everrecurring tasks centered on a few acres and lacking outsile stimulation or change There is little of the friction of mind upon mind that produces flashes of intellectual brit liancy or arouses tho mental energies by the introduction of new ideas The principal thing the farmer gets out of lila occupation is fresh air Incidentally he gets rheumatism and lumbago and stiff joints Hygieni cally he is supposed to lire under the most favorable conditions People go to the country for health Those who live there seem to somehow manage to miss that blessing Who are the best patrons of the patent midi cine men Who buys the painkiller and the

now to some readers To make this lenMcss microscope procure a wooden spool A a short spool say one halt or threefourths Inch long produces a higher magni fying power and enlarge the bore a little at ono end Then blacken tho Inside with India Ink and allow It to dry From a piece of thin transparent celluloid or mica cut out a small disc n and fasten to tho end having tho enlarged bore by means of brads On tho other end glue a pleco of thin cardboard C and nt the center D make a small hole with the point of a One needle It It very Important that the hole D should bo very small bthor wise tho Image will bo blurred To use this microscope place a small object on tho transparent disc whloh may bo moistened to make the object adhere and look through the hold D It Is necessary to have a strung

of mankindA carefully prepared talks by tho teacher ou the chief industries could not fall to be valuable They could perhaps be arranged most fittingly in geography lessons or they could be made general occupying ten or twenty minutes once a weekI Such Instruction could be adapted to the understanding of the students and be made eminently practical more to than much of the knowledge In the books It Is the purpose of this chap ter to briefly outline such n series of talks We may take for our first subjectFARMINGSince we are to tart with the known and proceed to the unknown we may ask the children what occupation they would choose to follow They will name various ones farming carpentry blacksmith Ing teaching while a few may want to be lawyers physicians preachers The teacher may remark that these are all excellent occupations worthy of the best talents in the world Suppose we talk about each one in turn John why do you choose the life of a farmer John replies because It is an independent life or because it is healthy keeps a person 1inthe open air etc Tho next ques tlon may be how would you learn farming what preparation would you need Most boys will say Why you dont need any preparation you just get some land and go to 1This is the teachers opportunity to give instruction He may explain requiresIno preparation is very common but that it is wrong There is no oc cupation In the world that offers a finer field for scholarly minds There J Is something to be learned at every turn and it Is Interesting The farmer deals with life and life Is Interesting He must have a knbw u ledge not only of plants and domestic animals but of bugs worms and j weedsSomo years ago In Kansas there was a small bug called the Chinch destroyed vast fields of wheal The stalks of wheat 1growing covered with these little They were In such quan there was no known way destroying them It meant a loss IIofmillions of bushels of wheat to the farmers of Kansas in a single year UnlvIa

millions of dollars wore saved to tho farmers and null lions of bushels of whent tl the world became of the patient efforts of a scholar This Is but a single Instance ot what education is doing for the farm Mot of the states have established grunt schools called Agricultural Col lege for the purpose of training young men and young women for farm life and also to furnlrii better advantages for the study of farm problems These colleges require a fair knowledge of the common branches of learning and curry on regular courses of study They teach stock raising fruit raising butter and cheese making study boils grains vegetables and many other thine pertaining to tha cultivation of the ground In some states many of the dis trict bare a plot of ground In connection with the school yard where the children are taught In teresting and useful lesson in agri culture hitch pupil has a space to himself whore he may raise such grains roots berries or melons as he likes An exhibition is given nt the end of the term and the children show what they have produced and what they have learned All this adds greatly to the Interest of the school the advancement of the pupils and to the knowledge of the world The leg islatures of the states are taking up the subject and we may look for the rapid spread of this kind of work In the schools A farmer can no longer afford to be Ignorant Ignorance is costly in any line ot Industry but particularly in farming There are constant im provements in tools and in ways of planting cultivating and reaping The intelligent farmer must have his farm journals to know what is going on in the world and to keep abreast of the times He must read the papers to learn of wars and famines of devastations by fire and flood of bumper crops In other parts so that ho may judge ahead of demands and prices Ho must know of diseases of cattle horses sheep and hogs and the most successful way of treating or avoiding them of scourges of grasshoppers locusts worms and noxious weeds and the host means ot destroying them Houses the telephone and tho telegraph and the malls for buying and selling and keeping himself Informed as to prices In return for his study and work the farmer leads a delightful life full of variety and Interest His extra Intelligence gives him a fine bank account for the education of his chil dren and for his own comfort In old age There Is much true science in farming and the schools aro sending out an over Increasing number of trained mon and women who know how to make it both pleasant and profitable If a young man chooses to be a farmer ho cannot afford to mls an education Tho cheapest and shortest read to success is thru tho schools If ho remains Ignorant he will bo left far behind In the race Lake is very

CAUGHT NAPPING The Latter Were Not Looking for Things to Take the Turn They Did on That Eventful Friday and Were Taken Unawares Frankfort Ky March ITho sena torial race came to an unexpected close last Friday when tho tour Dom oorata Chnrlton MoNult and Muollor of LmiBvlll9 and Ltllnrd of Boyle who have persistently refuted to vote for Heckunin voted for Bradley and elect oil hits The finish was nn exciting one H the Republican quietly set n trap for the Democrat and caught them napping It takes seventy votes to make a quorum of the Joint assets bly and If all the Democrats but those who voted for Bradley had remained out of the joint session Friday there would not have been a quorum M several Republican were out of the city The Democrats knew this but M the absent Republicans sail Demo orals were paired they thought It w Md not make any difference anti that the days ballot would be Just like the others that preceded It When the rollcall began the Democrats voted for Itockham and the nepttblleaall for Bradley When Charltons name was called he voted for Wheeler Campbell ns usual but after live or six Demo crats hud voted for neck ham which Insured a quorum he arose and chang ed his vote to Ilradloy Tho Domo cents realized then that they woro In the meshes of the trap and as tho roll call proceeded thorn was much scur eying about and hurried whispered conS ferences but when McNutt Mueller and Llllnrd all voted for Bradley the race was over Tho Democrats fought for time to try to get together and al low the bolting Democrats to select some other Democrat and unite on him but It was too late the die was cast Governor Beckham came Inside tho hall and whispered to some of his leaders Senator Combs of Lexington announced that Beckhnm was no long er a candidate and all Democrats were nt liberty to vote for any other Dome crat they might choose but they could unlto on no other man Senator Now man of Woodford announced that ho was authorized to say that a caucus of tho Democrats would bo hold that night and another nomine selected If tho bolting Democrats would come back and keep Bradley from being elected but It all did no good and after more than an hour of wrangling tho result was finally announced and Bradley declared elected slxtyfour having voted for him and sixtythree against him It was the first Umo In the history of the state that legislators elected by one political party bad gone completely over and helped elect tho nominee of the other party Many Inv stances are on record where legisla tors refused to support their party nominee but they always cast their votes for another member of their par ty Of course there Is some and charges that money wasbltternelsI being made but tho public so accustomed to money being used In politics that It Is looked upon ns a matter of course Anyhow It It was sought to prove who paid the money or who received It the witnesses would likely testify like the negro wit floss when asked what was the color of the suit worn by tho man ho had seen running through his house and ho replied Well sir It seems as If ho had on a dark red cheeked wino colored brown suit Tho public will be ready to bollovo that money was recolvjedwill ever Thorn Is much speculation as to j what effect tho result In the senatorial Taco will havo on tho county unit option bill but no one seems to knowI as one side says It means the defeat of tho bill while the other side says It means tho bill will surely pass Tho bill has already passed the house and Is now In the senate awaiting whatever fato may befall It It has been the current understanding about Frankfort that the bill would be passed by tho house whenever It came to a vote but that It would be held uo and killed by delay when It reached the senate ns that body has boon con ildorcd about evenly divided on the question Tho sonata committee on religion and morals to which such bills are always referred IB largely composed of anti countyunlt senators and It the house bill Is referred to that committee It may refuse to report It nt all This being the case a fight will likely bo made to refer It to some other committee moro favorable to Itr passage It Is believed hero that If the bill Is not passed Governor Wlllson may call an extra session and name this measure ns one to be considered 5 Governor Wlllson sent another mes sago to tho legislature a few days ago In which ho renewed many of his for mer recommendations In addition ho says tho governor under tho present law has no power to make or have made the necessary Investigations that might result In the conviction of the night riders and asks tho legislature to sot apart a fund of 25000 which may be under the governors control to bo used In apprehending and con victing men guilty of these crimes Ho says the militia that has been on duty for tho past three months have al ready cost the state about 12000 Ho urges the passage of a law directing the attorney general nail his assistants to take charge of and control all in- vestigationsi of offenses against the laws where tho attorney general be lieves tho local authorities are likely to fall to prosecute such offenses He asks for a speedy consideration of the county unit bill and urges tho adop tion of a bill redistricting the state Into legislative districts lie says tho attorney general should bo authorized to Investigate tho cause of tho trou bles In the tobacco districts and also Investigate the trusts and their connection with tho troubles Ho thinks the military fund Is not largo enough and urges the appropriation of 76000 a year so as to put the Kentucky sol dier on an equal footing with the sol diers of other states Ha recommends n law giving atate aid to the building of public reads and again urge that provision lw made for nonpartisan boards to control the state charity and penal Institution lie cells attention to the faet that there le but little mon oy In the tats treasury and says lh legislature should be careful In tnak lug appropriations In concluding hie message he aay I MIl to extend in every member of the general assembly the bop that we hall be found working together for the general wet taro with prudence courage and gooj Judgment and with hope and faith and that the remaining days of the tea don may ha uninterrupted by death j nr any misfortune and may bring forth good fruits of diligent unoeaa lag and good work In completing the business of the people entrusted to the legislative department ami I hops that the general assembly will not delay ta- what It oan do 10 give power and i means to put an end to tho conditions of lawlessness and disorder It has seldom happened that anyone who bore the name of Kentuckian was will ling to hide hU face or personality and a griof and a shame that we have come to a time whoa hundreds of peo plo living in Kentucky do go by night In lawloKs bands with tacos hidden under masks and bodies disguised to rob people of their liberties to Inflict shameless Indignities to terrorize whole communities and to destroy the liberty rights and tho property values of the people of the state I Tho bill changing the namo of tho A M college at Lexington to tho State University has passed both s houses and will probably be approved i by the governor this week Tho Sulll van bill appropriating 200000 to the I state university and 150000 each to tho two state normal schools at Richmond and Howling Green has passed both houMta and Is ready for tho gov ernors signature The appropriations are mainly for new buildings for these Institutions It Is announced that Mr Carnegie has agreed to give 30000 to payjthe muchneeded libraries for the schools are now assured The attend nnco of pupils nt the two normal schools has grown so enormously that It Is likely a third school will bo estab invItroducedfor tho third school as soon as tho now statehouse Is occupied by tho state vofficials II fight 5 ahead It Is over appropriating uno 000 to complete and furnish tho new statehouse nnd beautify tho ground surrounding It The bill ns Introduced by Senator Bosworth passed the sen ato last week with a provision In Ir that tho present architect Frank M Andrews be retained to complete the building This section Is objectionable to Governor Wlllson and In his special message to the legislature ho said so ns ho Insists that tho selection or re tention of the architect Is an executive function and not n legislative one p Tho following bills havo passed tho senate and will now go to tho house for Its approval Tho Combs bill providing that non residents of this state that havo In tangible property In trust In this state shall not be required to pay taxes thereon In this stnto JIll appropriating 25000 each to tho Western

bill which places the growing of tobacco under the police power of the state has met with much dolay and many obstruc ions In tho house It was delayed sev eral days by the death of Represents tive McKnlght and then It was relia bly reported that tho American Tobac co company was on the eve of taking over all tho burley tobacco at associa tion prices which If true would somewhat lessen tho necessity for the passage of tho measure Later when the bill came up for discussion one or two members from the dark tobacco dis trlct opposed the bill on the ground that tho dark tobacco people did not want tho law passed It will come up again this week but strenuous efforts will be made to defeat it and it is charged that tho American Tobacco company IB using all Ita powerful In fluence against
