by noon it was plain that the registration thus year would be far larger than last Definite figures were not available however The registration this term to eepe daily gratifying in that it show that the young people are becoming more and more steady in their attendance at their school work and are pot al lowing minor thing to call them away There Is always a falling ott from the winter attendance when the spring term opens but this la be coming less and less and the ttudeati are correspondingly gaining greater benefits In spite ot the large registration students are still coming In and the total attendance promise to bd very largo A few students are always de hayed at the opening of terms for one reason or another and these will be dropping In for some time As usual tho collego has made special preparations to take care of late comers and give them every chance to catch up with the rest and no one should stay away because they may happen to be a day or two late There will be place made for all and they will receive every possible aid from their teachers and the college officers Tho winter term which bu been tho best In tho history of the college closed on the same day that the spring term opened Tho term Just closed has been successful not only in tho high grade ot work accomplished but In the general good heajth of the students In the comfort and enjoyments they have had In their work and especially In tho good they have received thru the Torrey revival meet Ings which have produced a powerful and lasting effect on the lives of tnany Every student who bas been here

DANVILLE KY It the else of letters received daily by W S Fitzgerald of this city president of tho Jailers Association of Kentucky are to bo taken at their face value the wolf Is lingering round the door of many a prison keeper in this grand 0old Commonwealth and many aro the bastilessAccording to statistics compiled by President Fitzgerald 25 per centum of the jails of the State are without a single prisoner and 60 per centum of infofnlivelihood while less than 25 per centum aro making a comfortable liv ing o tot tho jails exclusively In years past the position ot jailer was ono ot tho bestpaying political jobs In Kentucky thatof sheriff alone remunero ation KNOWS THEIR TROUBLES President Fitzgerald who Is jailer of this county is in a position to sympathize with his colleagues in office for his jail too Is empty ex cepting three cells occupied by men held for murder committed while the wore under the influence of liquor The jailers In Kentucky depend upon money received from boarding t prisoners for a living The per diem is 60 cents At the present time they are forced to depend entirely upon that income coupled with an Insignificant fee for accepting and releasing prisoners and without vio lators that measly tee cannot be securedThe last legislature realizing the downfall of the jailers adopted a law which has not yet become ef fective authorizing the respective lie cal courts of the stato to pay these officers for acting as custodians of tbo courthouses but that Increase in earnings will be small OFFICE WORTHLESS The walls are coming from those counties affected by tho recent THIEVES IN OFFICE A primary in either party in this state is nowadays accompanied by rumors of bribery corruption and stealing Leading politicians tell their friend that it is impossible for a man to win without these methods If this is true it mentis that the good men mtint keep out of politics apd that of themen who do rug the worst will win and Fortunatelyhisa few of the things which it is alleged will he done or have been done near here in the last year or two It is common talk that a certain successful candidate for one of the highest offices of trust in the gift of the people spent 7 000 for whiskey and votes This is nearly a dollar for every vote cast in the primaryIt charged that a certain county committee in conspiracy with a certain candidate for a leading office has arranged to throw out the regtilar election officers and at the that moment substitute men who will count the candidate in whether the people want him or not It is alleged that the opponent of this man has arranged to have all the money that can be used at every polling place in lilt county possiblehaveIt is charged that a certain candidate for a court office has been seeking support with a promise of immunity in almost all offenses to those who work for him These are ouly a few instances Natl1cltcould be put to everyone and places tho it is likely that been in each considera able exaggeration Still there is no doubt that much of this talk is true and that a great deal of corruption dues disgrace our primaries It is a well known fact of political science that a government is just as good or as bad as the men that run it In a free government that is the voters There is no virtue in freedom except that it does give the plain people a chance to protect their rights The primary has stopped the fraud and trickery of tho bosses and made it possible for the people to get the men they want And now we see the pri mary resulting in the choice of badmen This docs not mean of course that a majority of the men in any county want theives and bribe givers as county officers but it does mean that the majority allows the float and the criminals to control things And also it means that for one reason or another many good people are supporting men that they know are bad Some seem to think it is a kind of a joke anyway this matter of stealing elections and they vote for men that they know are buying votes and bringing in whiskey and corrupting their neighbors Iii this way a lot of men who think pretty tvellof themselves are really endorsing corruption By their votes the corrupt men winthe bribe givers are put into power and the county is turned over to officers that are not fit to be trusted Why f Because a great many men when it comes to a primary fight forget that tho welfare of the county depends on the men chosenthey forget that they and their safety are part of the stake being played for and they act as if they were merely playing a gamo where cheating wan fair Probably if they have so smalla sense of their duty as citiznns the thieves and corruptionists are as good officers as they deserve The cUre will come and the counties will have good officers just as BOOO as the majority are willing to Klop little dickeringa for their friends and vole for the best man for each office It will come just as soon as the people really want It Andevery man that sees his duty and does it by refusing to vote for any man that he knows will not make a good officer is helping to bring the time of good government nearer and advancing the interest of the community temperance wave Without liquor in the community our offices are worthless the jailers howl However as a rule the Jailers do not want a return of the saloon but will unite in concerted effort to have the next General Assembly adopt a law giving to each jailer addlUonal becomeka law it is apparent that a largo number of Kentucky counties will be minus a prison keeper The jailers will meet in Winchester Ky on the first Tuesday in September for the purpose of devising means by which their offices may become selfsustain ing At a recent meeting of the as sedation President Fitzgerald in his annual address among other things said EFFECT OF TEMPERANCE Under local option conditions the jails do not bring tho jailers enough to live on The fast spread of tho temperance sentiment has resulted In unoccupied jail cello and perforce iu per diem gone and tees lacking At every recent meeting to the Jailers Association the complaint has coma from our fellow officials located in local option territory that their offices are becoming more and more valueless each day I am in dally receipt of letters from Jailers convey ing like Information Speed the day when our legislature and voters will recognize the fact that It Is wisdom and economy to make the Jailers of flee sustaining because it Is an ab solutely necessary office that should appeal to good men and to make It so Irrespective of the poor unfortun ates who liquorfired and liquordull ed have been committing two thirds of our crimes and filling twothirds of our cells We are custodians of the peoples public property and grounds we are peace officers of the commonwealth and to all practi cal purposes necessary deputies to the high sheriffs of our respective counties There will bo enough and brothers rightstrespass upon their more for us to shacklo and guard who brothers rightstrespass upon their through sheer weakness and perverseness of human nature without those whom strong drink bites with the vipers venom but without the liquor criminals there are not enough to Z make the jailers office a paying institution on the present plan remuneration It is better to pay we one jailer to keep the peace than Indirectly to pay twenty prisoners to break It We are not complaining of the people shutting down the liquor traffic but of their forgetting the jailers office which we contend is ill necessity to the public goods even though wo continue with few if any prisoners behind tho barsLouls ville Evening Post WHISKEY GANG SCARED Cincinnati March 2Ihe liquor interests ot the country are about to start a fight In the State and Federal Courts which will make a new and more thorough test of their tights under the Constitution than has any previous litigation in all the years of the tight against the liquor traffic Circular letters have been re coined by local brewers and distillers asking their cooperation in a meet ing soon to be held In this city to formulate plans for tho fight While the circulars could not be secured for publication it is stated that tho liquor people will ask the courts to determine whether a brewer or distiller who has Invested millions In real

and devoting many lives to its development all of which Is jeopardized and destroyed without due process ot the law and wlthou compensation for the destruction of tho property has any rights under the Constitution Tho question la to be raised particularly In the States where there Is statewide prohibition Particular reference is made to Tennessee whero It is said millions Invested in such property has been destroyed The distillers and brewers of Ohio Indiana Kentucky Tennessee Mary land Pennsylvania Massachusetts and New York are asked to a single representative from each state to become a member of a general committee to assist in the formulation of these plans and decide upon an equal assessment to carryon this tight IN WASHINGTON Taft Carrying Out Roosevelts Poll clOlMerlt System to Govern Federal Appointments In SouthBrad ley and PloTarlff Work Slow Washington D C March 2909 President Taft intends to give the Southerners a square deal If not even a little better treatment than thy are entitled to This week he decided that Federal appointments In the South should no made upon tho re commendation oC the best men In each stateDemocrat or Republican and not of the Republican bosses only John 0 Capers who Is at the head of the United States Inter nal Revenue Service has been In the habit for several years of saying what men should be appointed to Govern ment places in his native state or South Carolina This week it ap pears that ho is soon going to lost his position And Mr Taft actually consulted a Democratic Senator tram South Carolina lion Edley D Smith about the selection of some import ant postmasters- At the banquet of Republican clubs held here last night the keynote oti tho whole entertainment was the statement which seems to be believed everywhere that the socalled Solid South Is soon to become partially RepublicanAFTER BIG CORPORATIONS- It is becoming evident that the thing Mr Taft cures most about is the controlling of big corporations He Is creating a new Bureau under the Department ot Commerce and Labor which will exist for the sole purpose of prosecuting unlawful and harmful trusts and monopolies He has selected two strong men to take charge of this matter The man who will be the immediate head of too Bureau is Wade H Ellis of Ohio who could have been made Sollctor ten eral If Mr TafP had not thought that the new job was so important that it must be undertaken by a first class lawyer such as Ellis Ellis is the man who chose the wording of the Republican Platform during the recent campaign The other legal giant whom the President has chosen to fight the trusts or octopi is named Ormsby McHarg He is a Chicago lawyer with a reputation for AssisS Commerce and Labor These mod will have a new law to apply against the monopolies un less something slips Taft is taking up in grim earnest the old Roosevelt proposition that all corporations do- lce business in more than one state shall have a United States license And this license Is not to be granted un less they can prove that they are not parts of a monopoly and that they have not undertaken to borrow money on the security of equipment which they do not actually own In case they deal in food they will have to show that their products comply with the pure food laws In this way the United States will have a grip on the big corporations such as sho has tried in vain for many years to secure It means purer food lower prices for products which might be controlled by a single big combina tion and no stockwatering NOT WITHOUT DANGER But there is danger in it too Tho Supreme Court has defined the term commerce between the several states under which Congress is given lOwer in the Constitution to make laws on such matters as consisting of tho transportation of goods pas sengers or news It under this right Congress can say what sort of goods must be handled It can also say what kind ot passengers must be handled It it can prevent transport ation of food which is not made right it can prevent the transportation of people who have not fulfilled its conditions for Inctnnoe of people who had not been divorced In accordance with a United States law Instead of a State law as at present Thus Congress could assume a great many duties which have always been attended to by the States FOLLOWING ROOSEVELT There is going to be a National Bureau of

has been styled rioting by mindrIt cannot be called that for to m knowledge nono of the women came to fightaIt seems to me that what brute strength has been used was on the other side Brains have been used to a greater extent than you Americans may Imag ine It was a cunning mind among our leaders who thought out the plan to talk to the members of parliament by having two of tho women chain them selves to the guard in tho balcony Just that little Incident gave England the idea that tho fight was a determined one- Modern advertising methods were used to circulate general knowledge of the March demonstration and certain ly if we believed that the power of brawn is needed to win this struggle we would not havo gone about It In that manner We could have hired hoodlums to make a far more startling argument In line with the use of brute strength Another manner of unique advertis ing was the airship episode which un fortunately ended disastrously The craft upon the side of which was

know where to look next for an outcropping of tho emblem which bears our little legend equal suf fragoMale members of British debility are to be figured upon if the selfish would defeat us and that Is

Just what steps he expects to take to create money for the pressing needs of the Govern ment he has not said As a matter of fact the real tariff bill will be made on the Senate side I of the Capitol and Mr Taft Is mak- Ing overtures of friendliness to all the Senators In the hope ot getting them to fix the tariff in accordance with his Ideas The Senate Is work- Ing splendidly this session and there seems to be none of the scrapping among the members which marked last winters work They have made a good start on the tariff bill already It is said In the House the discussion of the Bill is prolonging Itself beyond expec tation Mr Payne made a two days speech which showed a wonderful memory and a wonderful knowledge of the tariff problem but which not prevent the Bill from being fiercely attacked by tho Democrats and many of the Republicans The House Is going to convene at ten oclock and hold its meetings tar into the night this week Probably it will be able to pass the Bill and send It to the Senate within about two weeks Kentucky newspapers received here show that an attempt Is being made to get people to believe that Sen Bradley Is to have full charge of appointments to all Federal offices In his home state There Is no truth In these stories which did not come from the White House at all bare originated by a set of office hunters who would like to believe them If they could The reasons for the attempt to make the Kentucky Re publicans believe them however are pretty well understood here In the first place It is Bradleys ambition to do what the stories say he will do build up a machine of his own followers who will obey his commands and give him absolute command of Republican affairs In Kentucky There Is of course strong opposition to this by such men as Edwards Tin sley Bennett and other leading Re publicans who are pretty well satisfied to let the voters run the part Bradleys friends hope to be able to scare the supporters of these men who do not know the real facts and so force them Into Bradleys power In the second place there Is now going on in Louisville a fight for control of the Republican organization between the whiskey men and the dOs Bradley since his election to the Senate by whiskey votes has been very well disposed toward the whiskey ring and would be glad to help It out And these newspaper writers again hoping to deceive those who do not know the facts are trying to scare tho rank and flee of the party into the whiskeyBradley ranks In the Loulsvflle primary fights It even reported here that In case they tall to get control In Louisville they will throw the fall election to the Democrats The actual facts are as follows Bradley as Senator from Kentuck has a considerable power in the Senate to prevent confirming ot nominations of men for Kentucky positions Ho cannot force tho appointment ot anyone but he can prevent their appointment Mr Tatt thoroly loyal to his friends still has very little time to fight over the patronage and does not wish to have more import ant things blocked by getting Into a row with Bradley over postofflces It Is therefore reported that an arrangement has been made whereby Brad ley will be consulted about appointments but will not by any means be given full power In the matter Ho will not be permitted to punish those who supported Tart but where this question does not come up his candidates will receive consideration on their merits Taft will Insist on a high grade of appointments which will cut out ninny a Bradley pfe hun rand Bradley can get his men Urn only It they are approved by Taft In return he will not oppose the confirmation of the nominations sent In The regular party organization of which Judge Burnam is the head will receive as Is usual about the same consideration that the Senator does Bradley will have nothing at all to say about the Republican Congressional districts which will greatly handicap him in the fight he has undertaken against Mr

number of our friends we have decided to circulate a Declaration of Political Indepen dence which we publish in another column The League has given an order j to the printer for 5000 copies similar to the petition forms and 5000 cards I Both forms will be furnished on appll I cation This method has stirred Mary land About 3000 voters signed cards containing tho Declaration ot Polltlca Independence in a meeting held at the Lyrlo theater in Baltimore City I on January 31 The indications are that this plan will assure the election of a legislature in Maryland pledged to support the local option bill notwithstanding the tact that certain political leaders had planned for the liquor men to capture the general assembly The fact that thousands of voters have signed the Declaration of Political Independence has upset their plans and made them sit up and take notice Candidates feel compelled to comply with tho wishes of voters and are getting into the band wagon We have allowed the will of the majority to be thwarted long enough in Kentucky As rapidly as possible a county committee ot five mon will bo appointed in each county to receive the Declaration of Political In dependence and after a sufficient number of voters have signed the Declaration of Political Independence to hold the balance ot power such a committee will bring the matter to the attention of all candidates both for the senate and the house and receive their replies in writing which replies should be published in order that those signing the Declaration and all other voters may have Intelligent information for their guid ance This plan will be absolutely fall to all candidates for each Candidate will have an equal opportunity to let the rotors know whether ho represents their views or not This they have a right to know Let us urge our friends to take the matter up at the next court day in their respective counties circulate the Declaration beginning early I that day and at tho noon hour appoint a committee to continue tho circula tion in their precincts and appoint the county committee to receive the Declarations signed and to apprise candidates In reference to the num her who have signed at the proper time This county committee should be fairly formed with men of all j political parties The Kentucky Issue For Quinsy Sore Throat Someone I have forgotten who asked for a cure for this

In some dangerous calling But the tough nature does not care whether it la exercised on the side of recognized authority or not it is simply Its exorcise that such a nature desires Ho wants to see himself in a heroic attitude I have no doubt that many of the Night Riders went into the thing just because it gave them an oppor tunity to ride around too country at night in a silly masquerade with guns in their hands and In their ogoatio hearts that satisfying feeling that they belonged to a band that runs things If tho young men in the rural communities and even in some of the larger towns throughout the South cannot be convinced that habitually to carry a pistol unless upon occa sions where one is really neededIs- a foolish thing to do they can at least bo convinced that it is an ex pensive habit The law against carry ing concealed weapons are good enough all that is needed is their general enforcement by the proper authoritiesDuelling has been frowned on In this country for several decades but it would be better than such street killings as that of Carmack in Nashville or that ot Gonzales in Columbia a few years ago In a duel each parti cipant at least has something like an equal chance but when the pistol toter goes after his man it is not with the idea of giving him a chance for his life It men of Influence and a certain degree of prominence like the Coop era In Tennessee and the Tlllmans in South Carolina tote deadly weapons with which to settle their personal difficulties If these mon of a class who are supposed to have had certain educational advantages are pistol topers how then are the inhabitants ot the Reelfoot Lake district the Kentucky and Tennessee and Georgia Mountaineers and tho youths of the narrow Inland villages all throughout the South

oxyhydrogen blow pipe and the necessary cylinders of gas to feed the latter It Is very neces sary to know bow to do It to obtain the kind of results which crown M Paris efforts but that la a mere de tailM Paris Is a very retiring and mod est discoverer and the first Inkling the world that Is to say the scientific world had of his wonderful discovery was the announcement made at a recent meeting of the Academy of Sci ence at Paris when a communication from him was read An enterprising Paris Journal sought him out and both correspondent and photographer worked on the subject until they wrested from the Inventor the method of his tweptleth century alchemy It Is probable that M Paris had his attention directed to the manufacture of precious stones from the growing demand among engineers for some cheap substitute for the diamond in drilling It was found when work on the Metropolitan Underground Railway In Paris was begun that In certain parts of the line near the Seine there was a subsoil so soft and oozy that It seemed that nothing would con trol It while the tube was being run throughlLAn engineer suggested that if the quicksands could bo frozen they might be rendered almost as hard as rock and while In this condition they might be bored with a diamond drill The merest tyro In the Jewelry trade knows that although there lUG cheap diamonds It would require a small fortune to provide them In suf ficlent quantities to enable them to be used extensively In boring works The necessity of a hard drill In this work is due to the fact that It is essential that tIle boring proceed quickly for the reason that hardness of the soil Is obtained by artificial temperatures In itself a costly operation With the production of artificial sapphires it Is claimed a new substitute is at hand for tbo expensive diamond dust The now stones also permit of larger dUlls and consequently greater expedition In forcing the borings Minute diamonds have before this- been produced In laboratory experi ments but In no sense In commercial IIfl G TOE INGREDIENTS fff JiIGli TEI1PER jlJRE quantities or at a cost below that of the genuine stone As a matter of fact the artificial diamond Is more of a luxury than the real arUcle ale though the production is an achieve ment to be admired and to make man feel that he has done something On tho other hand however the sapphire of M Parts is a commercial article and lis produced in commercial quantities and at so small a coat that it la be lieved that new uses for the stones will be found They have all the character of tho stones of nature They have tho color the hardness 01 spe cific gravity of the genuine sapphire and can be sold at a figure below that of the most Inferior natural stone The success of the discovery Is believed in France to foreshadow the manufacture of other precious stones and now it is believed that fabrication of the pure carbon which is to say the diamond Is measurably within view In this prophecy It may be that the importance of the discovery is overestimated yet it shows that the electric current or by means of a ra dioactive substance Is unnecessary M Paris accomplishes his wonderful transmutations by means of the common calcium furnace- In beginning the operation M Paris uses most delicately balanced scales so contrived that they answer to the merest fraction of a mlllegrammo This part of the operation must be conducted with the greatest attention and with preciseness for the variation of a mlllcgramme too much or too lit tie of the powder means the failure of the experiment Into one of the buckets of the little balance the In renter puts his powder composed of two parts one of them of an alumin ous clay and the other of an oxide col oring substance Here Is the real secret of the operationthe peculiar kind of clay to be used and tho quan tity to bo mixed These are small for the stones now being manufactured are comparatively small The next operation Is to place this soft powder in crucibles made of a refractory earth This crucible then Is deposited in a furnace heated by oxybydrogen gas by means of a ahoy el with a long handle This resembles the Implement used 6y bakers to place their dough in their ovens The cru cible which Is placed in a heavy oil Is left in the furnace for several hours where It is attacked by a heat of 1700 degrees centigrade or about 3000 degrees Fahrenheit After a lapse of time necessary for this stage of the transmutation to be completed the crucible Is withdrawn and its contents placed In a Jar termed a semeuse which may be translated as meaning the germinating recep tacle In shape it Is not unlike a flow or pot and also looks like a larct cartridge Tho operative puts more pow der Into this semeuse and then after sealing It places It In a rptclal ly designed oxyhydrogen blowpipe furnace These furnaces are protected by a sheet iron front and arn waUhed constantly by women operatives lore the temperature is only about 1500 degrees centigrade The powder Is al lowed to drop slowly from the supported Jar through a funnel to the boated point of a blowpipe and as It falls the drop is formed by contact with the free air into a beautiful blue and translucent sapphire It Is then ready for the cutting which proceeds In exactly the same manner as with the natural one These artificial sapphires have been found to resemble In the cutting the real article and excepting for the shape they would resemble the genuine stone oven In tho rough- Advancement In Illustration Up to 1879 no other methods wore used for plates In

the breeding of tho stallions they patronize prodded the service fee Is kept nufllclcnt ly low A cheap service fee Is tho least consideration In breeding horses The cheap fee means a cheap selling offspring It is the proverbial penny wise pound foolish policy and It is high time that our farmers loam that It is to their best Interest to make sure that the stallion they patronize Is purobred

oleomar arlne ho should at lout ticket It as such and not advertise It as pure creamery butter In exactly the same way it is but right that the man who offers a counterfeit grade or scrub stallion for

rotative to posters Tho law requires a poster containing copy of tho license certificate on tho door of every stable at which the horse la stood for pubuc service In many places these par tlcular
