RingNo Discussion of Bills to be Allowed Tat t Legally Elected President Washington D C Feebruary 15 09 President Roocevelts trip to Ken tucky on tho centenary of Lincolns birth does not seem to have exhaust ed tho President In tho least 110 reached Washington at two Saturday afternoon and wan aUhls desk fresh and vigorous as ever within halt an hour Much of the Presidents great ness Is due to the surprising amount of pbyslclal energy ho has Lincolns birthday was finally made a special holiday in the District of Columbia by Congress Congresa had been trying to play politics with the bill by attacking a rider calling for a sur vey of tho proposed Lincoln memorial road from Washington to Gettysburg Only thirteen days are loft to this Congress The big appropriation bills have been fully prepared by tho com mittees Tho men not on tho com mittees nro protesting that they ought to have time to look over theso bills and that thoy ought not to bo passed with only an hour or twos discussion as the leaders plan When the Naval bill came up In the Senate Thursday It was opposed by LaFolletto on the ground that it had not oven been seen by these who are not within the socalled Inner ring Ho mado so much fuss that tho bill was put over till today when tho LaFollotto or reform forces will sho what tactics they Intend to take Less- than a quarter of tho Senators hold all the Important picas on the Senato committees and thus Is being form ed what is known as an oligarchy or government by a few powerful men Friends of such a system say however that as long as the people elect representatives there Is no harm done If a small number of those representatives aro able to control the others This would perhaps be true It tho few always won by force of their superior ability The best seta naturally gravitate into the re thatlitto put out of their powerful places and can stay In public life by cor rupting a very small part of tho pee pIeAt any rate Congress has no time to stop and explain bills to members just now and the committee rule is in full swing Congress as a whole takes just what Joe Cannon gives It It 1s expected that tho sessions from this unto forward will have to begin l at an earlier hour than before and that all night sittings will be the rule In order to got the work done RAILROAD LAW UP The Hepburn Railroad Rate Law has been attracting attention this week Senator Fulton of Oregon In troduced a bill to permit the Inter state Commerce Commission to un dertakQ a valuation of tho railways so that It can toll how much money they are making In proportion to their investment On Wednesday Sen ator Elklns who owns a taco railroads reported that this bill was not needed since the present law is perfect conservartlvo clement In tho Senate is afraid that further regulation of the rail roads just now will retard the return of prosperity which they aro anxious to help rather than hinder Probably andtwo need not fear that tho rates charg Uns necesr sary for tho stability of the business situation as the people will not stand for much more foolishness An amusing feature of tho week has beea Ute discovery that under the Constitution Senator Knox cannot bey cause since ho has been a member atI Congress that body has raised salary of the place ho Is asked to occupy A newspaper reporter was the only man to think of this diffi culty and all the statesmen in Wash ington are trying to think up excuses why It did not occur to them sooner Congress will reduce the salary of tLo Secretary of Stato to its former size until Mr Knox takes office when It will bo raised again for his benefit Some persons who are seeking no torlty notably Senator Klttrcdge have been trying to revive the dis puto as to whether the Panama Canal shall be built with locks and dams as Is the present plan or be dug down clear to sealevel all the way which thoy agree would be better Mr Taft seems to have settled this matter this week by announcing that tho lock plan Is good enough REFORM FROM THE INSIDE One of the most hopeful movements ever started for the benefit of thu mountains Kentucky is that recently organized in Jackson Breathitt for a convention to consider means of bringing peace andIlaw observance to Eastern Kentucky It is most encouraging to tho favor with which the movement is being received and it seems likely that great goodwill result from it The evils of life in the mountains are too well known to need recalling and there is a more or less constant cry against them Out side people have tried in various ways to help but have not done very much until recently tbo home folks have begun to take the matter up No such movement is worth much till it has the support of the home particular ble position to act as leader in the work Every one who is roally in terested in the welfare of the mountains will do his best help the good workalong It is worth noticing that the Jackson Law amp Order League has gone at its work in the right a The pledge which we print in another colum is a model of its kind and hits at the real source of the troubles tho whiskey trade and the failure of good citizens to appear in courts or before grand juries aginst the whiskey men Ono of the main points of tho pledge is H promise to appear in court in such cases and this as is already being seen in the Breathitt yearsItOne of the reasons why things move so slowly in the mountains is that there is little cooperation One part of the people will act then another but each ono allows the acts of the other to fail A pull altogether will be worth more than a thousand little tugs by ouo county or one comunity at a time and this general movement improvementinParticularly such a movement will give us a chance to prove to the rest of tho world just what kind of people we are Fool newspaper correspondents and writers have made the outside world think that Eastern Kentucky is a sort of an annex of the lower worldand such a movement as this showing that the real majority of our men are against lawlessness and that there are only a- fewa very lewof the lawless kind among us as there are in everycommunity on earth will do more for the reputation of the mountains than anything else could Lot us all get together for the honor of our homes and the good of our state LINCOLN AND ROOSEVELT In a way there could hardly be two men more unlike than Abraham Lincoln anti Theodore Roosevelt And vet they are alike in peoplethon recent description of conditions during Lincolns administration It wwas not until

except lie openly to discredit IJimmen who twist facts and evade the truth in an effort to make him appear ridiculous Somehow they seem to be unconscious that the mass of the people are with him anti that it is the real rulers of the country the common people lhat they are attackingRoosevelt like Lincoln is so big that they cannot see him He is so near that they cannot get the effect of the whole man In due time they will find that the people as usual have come nearer the truth than they and that Roosevelts place in history will be among our lending presidents But it is too bad to show the world such a sorry spectacle as Congress is now presenting The postal tavlncs bank plan which will put a United States Savings Bank In every country post office will probably go thru Senator Al drich

In dustrial Education President Frost was at home over Sunday and presided at convocation Monday night The subscriptions for the Adjustment Fund which Is to discharge Be reas obligations to the colored peo ple and establish for them a well equipped industrial and normal school have been coming in rapidly but were not enough to justify the christening of the new institution by President Roosevelt on Lincolns birthday More over the question of location is till unsettledThe and leading men otI the State quite regardless of poll Ucsor denominational lines have warmly approved the project but the response In gifts has been moat unworthy many people who are loud in their professions of interest in the Industrial education of the negro having given only petty sums or noth ing at alL Louisville is the only place In which the subscriptions of the white people exceed those of the colored people This means a regretable setback to the general cause of educational progress in the State Not merely President Front but all those who hope for advancement of the State will have to begin a more elementary campaign In teaching people to give money for things of public benefit It Is really surprising that so ninny people who will give lavishly to re lievo distress among the colored peo ple of their acquaintance will give little or nothing for an institution which will do so much toward dimlsh ing all the misery and crlme and in efficiency of the negro population It Is among white people of means that the first work ot enjlghtment must be done The representatives of the now and greater Kentucky however the younger business men the womens clubs and the people whose religion Is something more than a form are all on tho side of tho Lincoln Institute and with their help the

usual inter est on Washington as n Colonial Magnate written by E N Vallandlgham the following Is the striking Introductory sentence That great river tho Potomac in its tidal course seems fitly to typl fy tho life and character of tho majestic man Washington who was born within sight of its banks whoso permanent homo for most of his life overlooked many mile of its course and whoso tomb now dominates its waters Tho sketch concerns itself almost exclusively with the homo side of Washingtons career and will be read with Interest by many persons accus tomed to think of tho father of his country only In his regimental uniform or In the presidential chair at the capital Magnate as ho was and tho neighbor of other magnates who were notoriously pleasureloving and fond of display says Mr Vallandlgham as his in teresting article is near its close Washington retained the business Instincts and habits of his fam ily Before he was 14 he had familiarized himself with business forms and methods and from his early youth he was a strict and minutely careful accountant During much of his lifo at ML Vernon ho rose at daylight breakfasted at seven In sum mer and eight in winter dined at two upon meat and vegetables drinking beer or elder and two glasses of old Madeira and went early to bed He helped Peter the slave blacksmith to make a new kind of plow and was so eager to tn it that o ho actually harnessed to the inven flan a pair of his best horses Washington was essentially man of business after ho ceased to bo a colonial soldier ML Vornon had ten miles of water front most of which as tho owner told a correspondent was a fishing shore Tho selno was hauled and the gill nets and purse nets wero tended by tho slaves but wo may bo suro from Washingtons habits that ho superintended tho work The Pot nine of today In the region of Wash ingtons birth and residence has miles of not staked out Just wore staked when his dusky fisha men fared forth and returned laden with tho miscellaneous catch Washington himself according to Irving seized a poacher whom ho found In a boat on his premises lying In wall for canvasback ducks Flour with the name of Washington upon tho barrel passed without t spection In British West Indian ports Washington had great tobacco barns such as today show their gray shingles on the slopes ns ono sails tho Potomac and ho shipped his tobacco In Just such hogsheads as aro shipped today from half a hundred ports on tho Potomac and Its tributaries Thoso hogsheads aro no longer trundled dlrectlyupon their own staves over roads Impracticable for wheeled vehicles but they aro still mado with perpendicular un bossed sides Just as they wore in tho seventeenth and eighteenth cen tunes Tho world well knows tho steps that converted tho well content and loyal colonial magnate of 1760 who had everything to gain from continued good relations with tho moth er country Into tho patriot loader of 1775 and tho next eight years All through tho revolutionary struggle Washington kept himself Informed of tho doings at ML Vernon and ho returned to it at the closo of tho war determined to resume his old occu pations Ills dissipations as a colonial magnate bad been dinners at Belvolr and other neighboring plan tations and an occasional visit with Mrs Washington to tho gay little state capital at Annapolis whither tho belles of Maryland wero accus tomed to ride on horseback with their hoops looped up somohow in order to danco all night at tho balls for which the infantclty was famous Even the long war the anxieties of the critical period that followed and the burdens of tho presidency loft Rashlogtoa- with the simple Instincts and habits of the coun lie wrote to abusinessorty magnate and man friend In thoso

table boasted Later still after Washington had definitely laid aside tho cares of state Col Carrington found at ML Vernon still marked simplicity Tho veteran upon tho occasion of Carrlnctons visit went to bed at midnight instead of nine oclock extending his time three hours In honor of his guest Mrs Washington always spoke of her official life with its levees and formality as her lost days and Mrs Carrlngton found her in her own rooms with a chambermaid knitting In ono corner and a little negress learning to sow In another The first lady of the White Houso was oven then knitting gloves and stockings for friends and dependents It was of this period or perhaps a row years earlier that an English actor tolls a pleasant story Ho was on tho public road somewhere near ML Vernon when a private coach was upset The occupants n fine lady and her escort almost angrily demand ed help Whllo tho actor was doing what ho could a large man rodo up on horseback dismounted rendered effectual aid for which ho received scant thanks and started tho illmannered pair upon their Journey Then tho stranger turned to tho actor recognized him and recalled tho fact of hay ing seen him moro than once upon the stage By this time the actor in turn had recogrJzcd the man on horseback as Gen Washington Tho Incident closed with the actor on his way to dine at ML VernonFor most of us today that giant figure in tho background of our short national history suffices to hide the perspective of tho earlier Washington In his successive stages as a colonial American Nevertheless tho plain planter and provincial sol dier called upon to lead a now nation In war and in peace and to take an unwilling hand In world politics must always havo thought of his later life In relation with his hnmbler past Whoever would

In two years both measures will bo pressed through successfully At that time under tho now election law which gives throughout tho nation ono vole to each man over 21 years tho character of tho upper

to such unfairness A motion was brought forward by Herr Kvarnzcllm and carrrlcd In tho second chamber of the Swedish par llamcnt last year tho purpose of which was to put an end completely to tho receipt of any moneys from tho drink traffic by the Swedish state This motion was lost In tho upper chambers on the ground that If the revenue from tho drink traffic were cut off other sources of supply would be taxed and as representatives of tho capitalist and land owning class they preferred that tine wag earners should continue to contribute an Im mense share of tho revenue through expenditure on drink Tho temperance needs of tho country are pressing and a strong current of public opllon Is urging reform Without doubt the suffrage readjust wont will prove a prologue to the great

BreathittBig Conference of Lead ers Called From The Lexington Herald Jackson Ky Feb 13Thcre is a real moral in Jackson and Breathitt county and In fact this section of the State that Is destined to have a decided influence upon the future welfare of Eastern Kentucky The masses of the people are united and In earnest in an effort to suppress lawlessness of all kinds and especially the liquor traffic and It seems now that this one evil the greatest menace to the people of the mountains of Kentucky must go- About the first of December last a meeting of the citizens of Jackson and Breathitt county was held In the court house here for the purpose of planning decisive action against the Illegal sale of liquor In this and ad Joining counties and notwithstanding the fact that the day of the meeting was a very day tho court house was packed with the citi seas of the town and county Able addresses were made both by local speakers and by speakers from a distance pledges were circulated and signed by hundreds of the citi zens and the real work of a concert ed fight against lawlessness was be the purpose of giving greater scope for this work and to the end of uniting the people of Eastern Ken tucky in a common cause resolutions were Introduced before the meeting by Judge William M Beckner of Winchester Ky calling a meeting of delegates from fortytwo counties of Eastern Kentucky to be hold In Jack son Ky on the last Friday In April 1909 the 30th day of the month for the purpose of devising the best means of enforcing the law in this section and to consider questions of educational and religious awakenlng and many other matters Plans are now being put on foot for this meeting and the people of all this mtlon and in fact the entire State may look to It as being the most Important meeting of Its kind over held in Kentucky It Is the hope of the citizens here that even in Jackson and Breathitt coun ty the locality that has heretofore been cursed with fueds and has been malinged and mistreated by the outside world there may start an awak ening that will have an Influence the Stato and will oven be felt the land Why cannot this be done and why may we not hope that the very peo ple and the very influences that have heretofore been ready to speak of our evils and our calamities may turn at4 speak of our goodnesses and redeem ing qualities Judge G W Fleenor of Jackson is

coun ties will attend the meeting en masse and hundreds of delegates are expect ed from the more distant counties and In fact from different portion of the State It is to be hoped that the press of Kentucky will take up the matter of encouraging and promoting this gath ering and that all the people of the State who are patriotic and who lot the good name of Kentucky and are fond of its history and Its tradition and who are willing to do something toward promoting the general welfare of Its citizens will do and say something toward the advancement of this causeAs an example of the effect that this law and order movement Is hav ing on the citizens of this county requests have come from all parts of the county addressed to Common wealths Attorney Kash and County Attorney Haglns that

requests many hundreds otI witnesses have been summoned for the grand Jury and will be present The whiskey traffic Is to be fought at this time as It was never fought before i and those that have been Indulg ing in this form of lawlessness must stop Circuit Judge Adams of this Judicial district is determined upon the enforcement of the law relating t the sale of liquor and the whiskey j men have

Have finished my school ing and am planning to go west Come or write and get a bargain Horace Caldwell Bercri Ky LIVINGliAS JESUS WOULD Experiments such as that just being made by some of the church people of Cleveland In trying to live as they believe Jesus would aro of value even If they do no more than show how difficult it Is to realize Christian ideals under presentday con ditions The trouble always is in such cases to agree on what Jesus would do for there is as much room for difference of opinion on this sub ject as there is diversity in human minds It is all plain sailing so long as you do not get down to concrete Instances It Is a simple matter to pledge yourself to live the Christ life in the abstract but when you come to decide what your right line of con duct is in any one of the hundred little difficulties that present them selves to you every day then your trouble begins The Cleveland ministers steered clear of this practical obstacle by de claring that he would not attempt to advise but would leave individuals to rely on their common sense in any moral dilemma This begs the question for it is exactly on matters of Common Sense that we poor frail mortals disagree Common sense is not as common as it should be and your and my Idea of it may be very different What is an employees true course when asked to do morally dirty work What would be tho true Christian conduct of a merchant toward a fellowChristian who refused to pay his bills What are the rights when your neighbors chickens scratch up your gardenor when your chick ens scratch up hlaT What should be your attitude when your church raises Tr money by lotteries or other doubtful schemes What Is your Christian duty when the law requires some thing of you which you feel to be wrongWhat Is tho Christian position on Chinese exclusion or race antipathy on the sale of prisonmade goods or the union label on voluptuous task lions or wearing fatso hair on dan on making servants work on Sunday on differences between hus band and wife on misrepresentation in business on using tobacco on tea toperlng on bridge whist on giving beggars on habitual novelreading on the treatment of the heathen on kill ling animals on enveying the rich i aping their ways on talking about your neighbors or on other equally homely matters I There Is no answer that will satisfy everyone Good men and women in churches societies fwd families bicker and squabble over the merest little matters of everyday policy and never come to any agreement We cannot shape our actions to suit some one elses conceptionsbut what we can do is to shapethem more in accord with our views of what is right lance cannot hope to live as someone thinks Jesus wouldbut we can try to live up to our own sense of Christian standards and in doing this we shall grow constantly stronger and better We are In the world and of It and must make compro mises with conditions often against lour better Impulses Even Jesus did say which things were Caesars I and which Gods and we must ex pect to face many forks in the road In this life where even the most alert conscience will not show us which is the right way What we can do is to do our best and in doing it to be humble realizing our Imperfection assuming no omniscience and over seeking more lightThe Pathfinder When Mounting a Photograph To get the best

MEN OF WORTH IN TRIBUTE TO ABRA HAM LINCOLN PRESIDENT MAKES ADDRESS Qualities and Deeds of the Great Pre dent Set Forth by the Chief Exec utive In impressive Speech Im manse Concourse Gathered to Wit

not particularly smooth at this season of the year the people gathered to the exercises A building four times the size of the tent provided could not have accommodated the crowdThe corner stone of the Memorial ball was laid by President Roosevelt In an impressive address the chief ex ecutive eulogized the life and work of the great statesman He spoke as fol lowsWe have met here to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of tho birth of one of the two greatest Americana of one of the two or three greatest men of theImen roll splitter this boy who passed his un gainly youth In the dire poverty of the poorest of the frontier folk whose rise was by weary and painful labor lived to burningnametion emerged purified as by tire born anew to a loftier life After long years of Iron effort and of failure that come more often than victory he at last rose to the leadership of the republic at the moment when that leadership had become the stupendous worldtask of the time He grew to know greatness but never ease Success came to him but never happiness save that which springs from doing well a painful and a vital task Power was his but not pleasure The furrows deepened on his brow but his area were undimmed by either hate or fear Ills gaunt shoulders were bowed but his steel thews never faltered as he bore for a burden tho destinies of his people His great and tender heart shrank from giving pain and the task allotted him was to pour out like water the lifeblood of the young men and to feet In his every fiber the sorrow of the women Disaster saddened but never dis mayed him As the red years of war went by they found him ever doing his duty In the present even facing the fu ture with fearless front high of heart and dauntless of soul Unbroken by ha tred unshaken oy scorn he worked and suffered for the people Triumph was his at the last and barely had he tasted It before murder found him and the kind ly patient fearless eyes were closed forever Washington and Lincoln As a people we are Indeed beyond Pleasure fortunate In the characters of the two greatest of our public men thoughtheyKentuckybackwoodsman I sentials they were alike In the great qualities which rendered each able toI render service to his nation and to all mankind such as no other man of his generation could or did render Each had lofty Ideals but each In striving to attain these lofty Ideals was guided by the soundest common sense Each possessed Inflexible courage In adversity and a soul wholly i aspolled by prosperity Each possessed all the gentler virtues common ly exhibited by good men who lack rug ged strength of character Each pos sewed also nil the strong qualities com manly ox litJ by those towering tuU t terst of mankind who have too often shown themselves devoid of so much na the understanding of the words by whloh we signify the qualities of duty o mercy of devotion to the right of lofty dlstlnterestodncm battling for tho good of others There have been other men as great and other men as good but In nil history f mankind there are no other two great men as good DM these no other two good men as groat Widely though the problems of today differ from the problems set for solution to Washington when he founded this nation to Lincoln when ho saved It and freed tho slave yet the qualities they showed In meeting these problems nrs exactly tho same as those wo should show In doing our work today Lincoln Deep Foresight Lincoln saw Into the future with the prophetic Imagination usually vouchsafed only to the poet and the seer He had In him all the lift toward greatness of Uo visionary without any of the vision arys fanaticism or egotism without any of tho visionarys narrow Jealousy of the practical man and Inability to strlv In practical fashion for the realization of an Ideal He had the practical mans hard common sensa and willingness to adapt means to ends but there was In him none of that morbid growth of mind and soul which blinds so many practical men to the higher things of life No more practical man ever lived than this backwoods Idealist but he had nothing In common with those practical men whoso consciences are warped until they fall to distinguish between good and evil fall to understand that strength ability shrewdness whether In the world of business or of politics only serve to make their possessor a more noxious a more evil member of the community If they are not guided and controlled by a tine and high moral sense Lessons from Lincolns Life w of this day must try to solve many social and Industrial problems requiring to an especial degree tho combination of Indomitable resolution with coolheaded sanity We can profit by the way In which Lincoln used both these traits as be strove for reform Wo can learn much of value from the very attacks which following that course Born February 12 1809 Died ApriI15 1865 brought upon his head attacks like by the extremists of revolution and by the extremists of reaction Ha nevr waV- ered In devctlon to his principles In his love for tho union and In his abhorrence of slavery Timid and lukewarm pople were always denouncing him because ho was extreme but as a matter of fact he never went to extremes ho works l step by step and because of tills the el Iremlsts hated and denounced him with s fervor which now seems to us tan tuUc U Its deification of the unreal and the Impossible At the very time whee one side was holding him up as the apostle of social revolution because ke was against slavery the leading abo litionist denounced him as the slave hound of Illinois When he was the see ond time candidate for president the ma jority of his opponents attacked hum because of what they termed his extreme radicalism while a minority threatened to bolt his nomination because he was not radical enough He had continually to check those who wished to go forward too fast at the very time that lie over rode the opposition of those who wished not to ro forward at all The goal was never dim before his vision but ha picked his way cautiously without either halt or hurry as he strode toward It through such a morass of difficulty that no man of less courage would have attempted It whllo It would surely have overwhelmed any man ot Judgment less serene Man of Great Toleration Tel perhaps the most wonderful thing of all and from the standpoint of the American of today and of the future the most vitally Important was the extraordinary way In which Lincoln 7 I could fight valiantly against what ho deemed wrong and yet preserve undl mlnlshcd his love and respect for the brother from whom he differed In the hour of a triumph that would hae turned any weaker mans head In the hoot of a struggle which spurred many a good man to dreadful vlndlctlvcnVss ho said truthfully that so long as he had been In his once he had never willingly planted a thorn In any mans bosom and besought his supporters to study the Incidents of the trial through which they were passing as philosophy from which to learn wisdom and not as wrongs to be avenged ending with the solemn exhorta tion that as the strife was over all should reunite In a common effort to save their common country Strong Sense of Justice He lived In days that were great and agalnltbrotherto be the right In a contest so grim the strong men who alone can carry It through are rarely able to do Justice to the deep convictions of those with whom they grapple In mortal strife At such times men see through a glass dark ly to only the rarest and loftiest spirits Is vouchsafed that dear vision which gradually comes to all even to the lesser as the struggle fades Into distance and wounds are forgotten and peace creeps back to the hearts that were hurt hut Lincoln was given this supreme vision He did not hate the man from whom ha differed Weakness was as foreign as wicked to his strong gentlo nature but his courage was of a quality so high that It needed no bolstering of dark pan slon He saw clearly that the same high qualities the same courage and willingness for selfsacrifice and devotion to the right as It was given them to see the right belonged both to the men of the north and to the men of the south As the years roll by and as all of us wherever we dwell grow to feel nn equal pride In the valor and selfdevo ion alike of the men who wore the blue and the men who wore the gray so this whole nation will grow to feel a peculiar sense of pride In the mightiest of the mighty men who mastered the mighty days the lover of his country and of all mankind the man whose blood was shed for the union of his people and for the freedom of a race Abraham Lincoln Bishop Butlers Generosity So many examples of episcopal cu pidity have been cited In tho Office Window of late
