to tackle them Lets wake up CHANGE THE TAX LAWS There will be very few bills before the present state legislature of more importance than the one to change the tax system of the state No law in Kentucky is more out of date and none has caused more of the present poverty of the state and the weakness of the public schools than the tax law As it stands today it does not placesintolerablemust depend for its prosperity and particularly on the farmer and other owners of real estate At the same time it allows several kinds of property which can be easily hidden to entirely escape taxation Finally it imposes a double burden on poor men who are indebt such as men carrying mortgages In method of collection too the system is bulky and expensive and the results hare certainly been bad as can ba seen by any one who will take the trouble to look at the present buisness condition of the state Gov Wilson appointed tax commisson which has just made a re port bringing out all those points and recommending a system of tax ation basodon those in use in the twelve leading states of the Union which have been proved most successful The system provides for the dividing of the property into several classes and allowing propertyTheproperty and the cities franchises and mortgages This may not be the classification used but that is the plan Each piece of property would be taxed only once adopttedup of sayings banks will help buisness lighten the tax burden by bringingsome kinds of property out of hiding and work for justice fairness and equality all around If you have any influence with your member of the legislature it will pay you to advise him to vote for the law You will have a chance at it yourself later as the law will have to be submitted to the people for a vote as a

store In Russia On his journey through Japan he met Stapleton Neville sup posedly tn Englishman They agreed to Because of BUS piclousecfrcutanceea they were several times molested by Japanese ardy was arrested and found upon his person were papers showing maps of Jap forts Hardy was proven guiltless CHAPTER III The Queen of FairyLand I They wero off for Aomorl at the north end of Nippon in tho early morning leaving Yokohama on a toy train that started at G46 All day they traveled through a country tilled like a garden a country of vivid greon with many brawling streams of water clear as crystal and hillsides thickly wooded The sky was dark blue reminding one of the excess of color used sometimes by impressionist artists and seemed ever low and near Objects evidently close by appeared far off an effect sometimes attained In skillful landscape gardening or per haps In falryland The frequent farmhouses were built of bamboo set on end and wero thatched with straw As Hardy and his companion gazed from the window they were enter tanned by the running comment of their guide or dragoman Masatsura Tsuchlya whom they had picked up at Yokohama This young Japanese had spent several years In New York knew English and was bright and officious to the verge of pertness When a Japanese merchant and a pretty young woman boarded the train about the middle of the day It wan Masatsura who acted as Intro ducer and apologist This Is a Japanese silk merchant be explained and ho Is going with his daughter to Hakodate If the hon orable gentlemen do not object he will bring his daughter in with us I have explained that such is till cus tom In England and America Bring her In of course said Hardy rising and making ono of his most graceful bows We shall be de lighted to have the ladys society This was translated to Mr Sano the merchant who executed a series of supplo obeisances and to tho daugh ter who arose and courtesled demure ly In Japanese style Shes quite an acquisition eh Neville observed Hardy iVy the way turning to Masatsuradoes either of them speak English Not a word replied the guide Shes positively beautiful dont you think so Neville Hardy In quired of tho Englishman No replied tho latter I cant say that I do Theres something sicken Ing In their beastly yellow skin to mo nnd those slits of eyes pitched at that angle strike me as deformed or as physicians would say monstrous All foreigners living In Japan regard tho natives as an offensive inferior lot No I cant get up mjf enthusiasm per our Jan girls beauty 2 t Well to me shes about the dalnt eat and most exquisite creation my eyes ever rested on persisted the American If theres any yellow In her cheeks Its a slight tinge of moon light or perhaps ono might fancy a little gold dust mingled with the mortal clay of which she Is made She Is as dainty as a March lilac blossom her lips are as red as cherries and the blood that shines through her checks like like firelight through a delicatelystained windowLs ar warmly red as if she were Anglo Saxon I can understand now how foreigners like your own Edwin Arnold for instance have married Jai anese women Is It true that they do not kiss Such lips as those were intended by an allwise and merciful Provldenco for kissing Youll Jolly well change all those Ideas after youd been here a while replied Neville You grow sick of yellow people after living with them As far as Im concerned Id as soon kiss a rat as a Japanese girl Well said Hardy to whom the conversation was becoming distaste ful its not the thing to discuss a lady even If we are in a foreign country and observing and discussing everything I must insist however that I should weary of people like our little friend opposite very slowly An Idea occurred to HardyNeville was so disagreeable ho would talk tc Miss Sano Ho proposed tho matter to Masatsura who informed him that the young lady would be Incredibly honored Masatsura addressed a few words to her and she smiled on Hardy by way of assent and comprehension He sat down by her and Masatsura standing before them acted as Interpreter She was not the least em barrassed or silly Her manner com blned tho most deferential Interest and a quaint suggestion of roguishness When night came on Alsomo Ahe some so she was called left the compartment for tho womens quar ters and Hardy and Novlllo lay down on tho benches which ran around the sides of tho car like the seats In a Turkish house instead of across It They nIl slept soundly but the American was troubled with an un pleasant dream during tho night It amounted almost to a night mare ho explained to Neville I thought that Alsome came in with two Japanese and they searched us as if wo had been thieves Aieomo was still beautiful but sho did not look child ish any more I was positively afraid of her In my dream Tho girl held the lantern and spoke onco or twice sharp and quick as if giving com mands Her eyes wore hard and eager like those of a ferret I could feel the mans hand running rapidly over my person going Into my pock otc crumpling up my shirt They opened the valises and evon felt in- our shoos Then they all stole out again closing tho Gliding door noise cdly The laps are all thieves replied Neville Perhaps you were half c awake Wed better look and see ii anything has been taken Tho Englishman did not appear greatly perturbed yet ho went careful ly through his pockets and his va Use Hardy followed his example saying after ho had finished- It was a dream right enough Had It been anything else I should hav waked CHAPTER IV One Fond Kits They all took dinner together Also me Mr Sano Neville and Hardy at tho Aomorl restaurant Novlllo ob jected strenuously to this arrange meat They rrent quite human you know ho said Englishmen think they lose caste when they dine with coolies and so they dont do it don you know Well we shant lose any casto by dining with this little woman replied Hardy warmly any more that If we were to dine with the queen of fairyland Personally I shall fee honored to sit at the same tablo with so much grace and beauty We shan need a bouquet with her there Really I consider her about as rare and exquisite a feratnlno creation as 1 have ever seen and I shall think yoi mean to bo disagreeable If you do not show more respect for my fool Ings in the matter Oh all right growled Neville but he could not help adding Moat follows feel as you do when they first come to this bally country They all started up the steps together but Neville was detained lk had refused hotly to take oft his shoes nut sir It is the custom of the country explained Masatsura defer entlally Dotter take em off old man pro tested Hardy who was trying to bt civil but had begun to weary of hit companion Thoy may think It post lively indecent to go Into a dining room with shoes on After some opposition on the ground that It made him feel like a fool to go about In his stocking feet Neville removed his shoes and started up the stairs with thorn In his hand Bettor bring your shoes too hi explained to Hardy Theyll probe ably steal them If you leave then down there- They all squatted about a low table whose legs wero not over a foot high and waited for dinner Their room which had been enlarged to suit the size of the party by simply slIding together a partition looked out on a court Diners in other rooms on the opposite side of the court could bi seen also squatting about tables It loss than five minutes Hardy bad become most uncomfortable but Alsomi and her father sat there on their toes as easily as If they wero reclining 01 couches They ordered of the pretty girl who came to servo them and waited perhaps 15 minutes when Neville exclaimed Where are my shoes In such a tone that Aisom looked up inquiringly and her father evidently asked Masatsura what the trouble was The waiter took them out to have thorn blacked explained tho guide She will either bring them back or else leave them down thorn with the othersIt necessary to hurry through dinner somewhat for tho Teljo Maru sailed at three Neville spoko about his shoes two or three times Insistently and they wero brought back to him In a few momentsWhen the two foreigners left for the boat Hardy made a pretty parting speech to AlHome which Masatsura translatedAt he was arrested again Ho was thoroughly disgusted and threatened to make trouble but to tell the truth his rage was somewhat mollified by tho fact that ho might son Alsome again and that he would not be compelled to pass a week or DO longer In tho Englishmans company Nevertheless he said to him on parting If this thing keeps on I shall begin to share your opinion of the JapaneseHardy was clapped Into a room overlooking the sea from tho window of which ho could see the Teljo Maru steaming out into the purple distance An elaborate and dainty dinner was brought to him In tbo evening and about ten that night ho was escorted to tho wharf again A tiny figure muffled In a cloak was waiting there and the others stepped aside as this person approached- I hopo you are not vexed with me said a familiar voice in the wellmodu lated accents of an educated woman Alsome cried Hardy Yes Alsorae Dutbutyou speak English Yes I am a graduate of Vassar college and now In the service of my country Listen I havo only a moment and I feel that I xiould like to make you an explanation Your com panion was a Russian spy The plans of the forts on oiled paper were found between tho solos of his right shoo It was he no doubt who put tho copy of them In your pocket hav p 1 ing learned that he was under suspicion and would soon be arrested It was ho I am sure who entrapped you Into taking a photograph of the forts You are under suspicion and would have been In terrible danger had you gone with him You will sail now on another ship and will bo safe Ho will bo In danger said Hardy mystified What sort of danger Did I say that ho would be In dan ger asked Alsorae sweetly No I said that you would havo been In danger Wo have taken tho plans of the forts away from him but ho still has them In his headandnnd perhaps you have but I do not think soa man who could speak so beautl fully of a woman hut why are you doing all this for me asked Hardy Why Because I am a woman I suppose Because you have said there Is moonlight In my cheeks that my lips are rlpo cherries that I am madi of gold dust that I am a queen of fairyland I am known as tho Fox but I have a womans silly heart and cannot resist flattery There was something elfinllko in her beauty as she stood there with her face raised to his in the moonlight Old Sane says my head Is turned she sighed but it is easy to wheedle him Sano Ho is not your father thenNo ho is my superior in tho secret service And now goodby you may kiss me onco If you really meant what you said It will be the only kiss of my life as It Is not tho cus tom of my country She raised her lips to him and hi stooped and kissed her The lips wero dewy and very sweet and hll was conscious of some subtle perfume as If she herself wore some exquisite flower Goodby she whispered and think sometimes of tho little Lilac Blossom She turned and was gone and he stepped Into tho boat waiting to take him out to tho ship CHAPTER V At the Mercy of the Waves Tho crow of the Shikoku Maru con slsted of five persons the captain the engineer and three sailors They were Iho first filthy unkempt Japanese that Hardy had seen Ono of them a shockheaded boy who seemed to have brought to sea with him all the smells of Chinatown came and stood by the Americans side and gazed Into his face with insatiable devouring curiosity Hardy was watching the twinkling lights of tho town and think Ing of Alsomc with whom ho bad been thrown so brief a time yet who had played such a large part In his life and loft such an indelible Impres stop on his memory The lights grew tower fading In the distance ono by one It might be as well mused Hardy to make myself as agreeable as pOSe slble to these Jap I am alone with them In tho middle of the sea and I heard rumors In Yokohama that despite their exquisite politeness they hate all Caucasians Perhaps Also mebut no she certainly was sincere I wonder whore Neville Is now The American felt In his hip pocket and was comforted by tho cold touch of his revolver handle The reflection that ho was one of the most famous amateur shots In America gave him a distinct feeling of security The lights were all gone now That ono yonder at which ho had beer gazing so long and which did not fade was a star ho was quite sure He turned and walked forward to where the captain was talking with ono of tho sailors nnd Indicated by laying his chock on his open palm that he was sleepy and would like to go td bed The captain wltr sudden com prehension and mauJ exaggerated gestures of polHonesa led him to a hatch and opened tho door Hardy saw a ladder and as much of tho dark roomy hold as a lantern hanging from II beam could Illuminate Tho cap tarn went down the ladder and Hardy followed Tho captain took down tho lantern and opened the door The cabin into which ho led the way was nearly semicircular In shape as It was bounded by a partition across the hull and the walls of tho ships stern A cushioned divan extended in a semlclrclo around tho rear end there was a carpet on tho floor nnd furniture In the form of a table over which was swung a din Ing rack and a couple of chairs Tho captain made an Inclusive hospitable gesture accompanied by a low salaam Hardys mind was relieved Tho divan looked comfortable so- ho lay down on It and composed him self for sleep Ho woke up about an hour later on tho floor Tho wind war rising and the Increased plunging of the boat had rolled him from Iris couch Ho spread his blankets on the floor lay down and soon dozed off Ho was wakened a second tlmo by a cold stream at water spouting full upon Trim with terrible force He jumped- to his feet only to be thrown sprawl- Ing Tho lIttlo vessel which was light was rolling from rail to rail anti the water had coughed in through the mU And Opened the DoorI11thewould be drowned cooped up there In the cabin seized him and ho looped clambering for the porthole It was not far above him but ore ho could reach It It was below him and ho was thrown toward it receiving a second waterspout full In the face drenching him to the skin But he was as active as a monkey and succeeded in thrust lag an arm through the opening lie hung on with a will and as his IIldI of the vessel hove Into tho air againI slammed the window to and gave a few frantic whirls to tho screw suf ficlent to make It catch and form a solid object to which ho could hold lie secured the window and rolled toI tho floor where ho rested on hands and knees with his limbs spread outI as widely as possible to keep himself from rolling about while ho took stock of tho situation Enough water had come In to drench him thoroughly and to wet his blankets and bag gage but not sufficient to flood tho floor of the hold Ho crawled to the door and tried to open It but to his surprise found It locked He pounded on It and shouted but to no avail This discovery aroused In him again tho sense of danger and the faco of Alsomc as ho had seen It In his dream In tho train took shape before tho eyes of his memory Seizing the knob of the door ho throw his entire weight against It several times with the In tention of breaking it in but to his surprise It offered unoxpected resist ance As he stood thus still holding to the knob and wondering why he had been mado n prisoner there was a horrible grinding grating sound tho ship shuddered as though wounded to the death and the stern rose high In the air and remained thus Hardy know this from tho fact that ho was pow almost lying on tho door against which a moment ago ho had been leaning The grinding continued accompanied by bumps and slldlngs giving him very much the samo sen sation that ho had once experienced In a building that was being shaken by nn earthquake The waves over which she had but now been leaping against her with terrific and angry violenceMy gasped Hardy we havo run upon a rock and I shall be drowned hero like a rat In a hole If they do not let me out Open this door 1 Hello Open I say CHAPTER VI A Terrible Hour Tho ship had evidently ridden partly over tho rock or roof upon which with long freo strides pounded- It was perched and was resting at an anglo with nose downward This was orlunate because It precluded any Immediate danger of drowning Har dys position was uncomfortable In that there was not a level surfaco IB the entire room for rest on Man Inferior In this respect to a catI or a fly of a worm becomes next to helpless whoa his standing ground It tiltedThere was at last a more violent upheaval than any betas The ship plunged and settled leal tag the cab In floor nearly level Hardy npianc to his feet Sho has either broken her back ho cried or she has gone over the reef and settled In tho shallows She listed to port and rocked gently from side to side rendering It impos Bible for him to stand without holding to something And now the water which had been pouring Into tho forward part of the hold came seething from beneath and around the door and through tho cracks of the partition Every time the ship listed to starboard It reached a tiny knothole and spouted for several feet In A hissing stream She bas settled on the bottom muttered Hardy sho will hold now she will hold The water cant pos sibly rise high enough to drown ma 1 will climb on the table on the dl van It rose to his ankles to his knees and ho got upon the table and sat there holding to tho edges The wind began to subside somewhat and ho could hear the ghostly unearthly noises made by the wreck Itself meanings and groanlngs crooking knocklngs muttorlngs whisperinGs tho gurgle and soothing of tho water as It rushed In and out with tho rhythmical listing of the ship Ho climbed to the porthole opened It and looked out Tho early sun was gleaming redly on a sullen heaving sea Tho waves wore whitening over a long reef Perhaps If he could procure something In tho shape of a stick or polo that ho could poke out of the window with his shirt tied to ItIre looked about and to his surprise discovered that tho door was partly open Ho jumped down and waded to It thinking for the moment that tho Jan aneso had como to release him Ho pushed the door open and gazed Into the dim hold whore mattresses And planks from tho berths were floating about In rather dangerous confusion Ho gained tho ladder mounted and stood upon tho deck there was no sign of a living soul Evidently tho Japanese hall gone off and loft him to his fato Tho door ho had no doubt had been jammed open by tho strata Ing and plunging of tho ship rAro- was land In tho distance n font coast line which ho know could not bo that of Russia for tho Stlkoku Maru had been omit only n few hours when sho struck Hardy remained on tho wreck till nearly noon Ho had about made up his mind should tire crew return to lof thorn get aboard pick thorn off with his revolver and take to tho tea with their boat when ho discovered a steamer approaching Ho signaled her and cho sent a small boat that took him and iris baggage off Sho wan n Russian ntcamor bound for Vlad lvostokIt TO BE CONTl UBDJ OFFICESEEKERSNOT Think President Does Not Pay Sufficient Attention to Rec ommendations RELIES ON OWN JUDGMENT In the Matter of Making Appoint ments It Has Come to Be Under stood That He Will Make His Own Selections Washington Somo of tho senators nnd representatives in congress have moro than hinted to President Taft that If ho expects unswerving support for nil tho treasures which ho recom mo mloil for enactment Into law ho ought to glvo moro attention to tho offlcesoeklns demands of tho lawI malcora demands mado on tho behali ot others There are many Democrats In congress who say that tho presi dent Is very much like President Cleveland In tho matter of dispensing patronage Mr Cleveland Is dead nad naturally nothing but good Is said of him but there are Democratic d officials still In Washington who served hero In the Clevoland tlmos and they have iihrrp memories of officeseeking difficultly that they aro ready to do clan are just like tho difficulties which tho Republican representatives and senators are meeting today- It Is now an assured tact that Presi dent Taft Intends to bo an absolute law unto himself In the matter of fill tag court vacancies and this does not npply simply to vacant positions on tbo bench but to officers of tho courts and to prosecuting attorneys The president feels that his long experi ence In law courts nnd especially his experience on tho bench ought to give hint nt least as clear an Idea of tho fltnesH of men to servo tho country as Is given others who never sat on a bench and perhaps never practiced law Notable Cases In Point There hove been several cases In which tho recommendation of senators havo run counter to tho Judgment of tho president and In tae main these cases have had direct connection with court appointments In the ease of the Kastern district of Missouri whoro there was n vacancy In tho office of the United States attorney the presi dent declined to act In anything like

Irrespective of tho fact that endorserment of only Republican senator from tho state of Missouri and tho endorsement as well of the strong Re publican organization of tho city of St Louis Democrats Shown Consideration Tho Democrats In congress being In the minority of course do not expect to gut much patronage from the White House but OH n matter of admitted fact they have been shown n good deal of consideration by tho administra tion In appointment matters There were Republicans who thought that President Taft ought to have given tho supremo court vacancy to a mem bar of tho majority party Instead of this tho president appointed Judge Horace H Lurton of Tennessee n for mer confelornto soldier and n lifelong Democrat When Judge Lurtons name was reported favorably from the senate committee to tho whole senate the honor of making tho report was given to n Democratic senator Mr flacon of Georgia Many Lawmakers Disgruntled Another Grover Cleveland feature of tho Tnft administration Is to bo found In tho addition to the prosl dents mesango to congress December G In which he urgontly recommended that a law be passed requiring that candidates In elections of members of tho house of representatives and corn mltto0a In charge of their campaign should mako n return to tho United HtAtos government of nil tho expenses that they Incurred during tho cam paign for election This has been taken to mean that tho president wants to securo purity of the ballot In all federal elections and It Is In line with what Is sold to be his determina lion to appoint only fit mon to ofllco Trouble may come to Mr Taft be cause of hIs refusal to listen to the pleas of tho senators and representa lives to give preference to their candi dates for office Tho disappointed ones seolc to obstruct some of tho legislation that the president desires to hnvo passed Civil Service Investigation There Is every indication that the United States senate will sanction tho resolution introduced by Senator Ho rah of Idaho authorizing tho Investi ration of the wholo system of civil torvlco of the United States govqrn moat The senate line been brought to an Investigating state of mind after a good dual of pressure from outside jmd many trials and tribulations that havo met tho senators themselves Tho Dorah resolution Is in tho hands of the senate committee on civil sere ice of which Senator Cummins of Iowa is tho chairman Tho resolution has n majority lu the committee favorable to its provisions and when It comes to the floor of the senate with an normative report back of It there scorns to bo little doubt that It will pass without much difficulty The changes that map come In the I I method of promotions ot minor red eral once holders as a result of tho senate Investigation are likely to bo of great service In bettering the con dition of faithful employed of the gov ernment whoso merits have been overlooked In order that political fa vorites whose work may not have been up to the standard should rev colvo promotion It can bo said that regardless of party most of the senators of tho United Otatcs have not beon any too strongly attached to tho civil service as It related to ap pointments but when It comes to a question of promotions under the civil service the senators are willing to acv qulesco In new rules Spirit of Law Violated It has been said before that It Is President Tafts desire that the spirit of civil service shall prevail in all departments Thousands upon thousands of mon nnd women arc appointed every year to minor offices under tho rules of tho civil service but when they onco secure their positions they havo found to their sorrow In many Instances that merit seems to count for llttlo when tho question of ad vancement comes up Not long ago Senator William Alden Smith of Michigan a Republican ad dressed tho senate In n heated speech In tho course of which ho declared that many of tho bureau chiefs In tho departments of government were noth- Ing moro nor less than potty tyrants who had In tholr hands tho power of promotion and who used It to advance those whom they personally liked while keeping back faithful men and women who hind worked hard but had not sought to curry favor It must bo borno In mind that tho senate Investigation of the civil serv- Ice system of the country will have to do largely with the question of pro motions The law does not specifical ly make provision for the advancement of tho men nnd women from one grade to another as a result of good work It has been taken for granted that merit would prevail but In this thought little consideration tins been given to tho frailties of human nature as they show themselves In men who for a brief period have been given au thorityCommissioners All Right No criticism of the civil service commissioners of whom Gen John C mack IK the duet is even suggested In an evident desire of tho senate to have an Investigation It Is conceded that ordinarily tho civil service exam inations for government positions are conducted honestly nnd that those who pass get tho places and that thoso who fall do not get thorn Undoubtedly the commissioners would like to have the law extended so that a clerk In a department who has done good work will bo sure to have his services recognized by promotion ra ther than to have the bettor place given to ono who has a personal pull Bureau Chiefs to Blame Complaint Is made that sometimes bureau chiefs will recommend for pro motion a clerk who happens to belong to the same lodge that he does or who attends tho same church with him or Is willing to show him favor because tholr wives happen to be friends In some of the cases tho promotion of a favorite works a hardship on n moro deserving ono who Is kept at his old desk and at his old pay In a sense this Is demoralizing nnd the senate thinks that It should be stopped It may bo that as a result of tho Inv vestigation n law may bo suggested for adoption which will give old government clerks a chance to retire on pensions Congress docs not like the prospect of n civil pension list but It realizes that If ono should bo author ized tho government would save money and nt the same tlmo Increase tho amount of dally work that Is done There aro hundreds of worthy men and women In tho service who cannot do n days work but who because of their long and faithful service nro al lowed to remain nt their desks and draw their pay To turn them out would In many cases monn suffering and hardship and possibly tho poor house This Is a groat problem and ono that has been troubling congress for years It may bo that action of sonic kind will bo takon In tho near futurePresident Becoming Earnest Members of both parties in Wash ington say that tho president has become more forcible in his Intercourse with tho loaders of his party than ho was during the debates on tho tariff They say that whon the tariff discussion was on In congress Mr Taft made up his mind to reverse the Roosevelt method and to plead with tho sena tore and representatives rather than to threaten thom with tho big stick It Is also Intimated that tho president has found that while a soft answer turnoth away wrath a mild request doos not always bring nn affirmative answer Tho bellof U that Jho president holds that unless his party car rhea out nil his recommendations at this session or makes definite ar rangements nnd definite promises to carry them all In the near future his party may loso control of tho house noxt November This Is ono of tho

pleat sant to relate that at last his efforts seem to have been rewarded to certain extent The trouble Is not over yet by a good deal but there are signs that tho storm is about to lot up a little And besides some of the fighters are wanting to got ini out of the wet Mr Taft as wo have repeatedly stat ed has at present one stogie ambition In IIIe11E WANTS TO GET THE LEGISLATION RECOMMENDED IN ins SPECIAL MESSAGES PASSED BY CONGRESS To accomplish this ho Is willing to overlook anything powthave worked him by playing on this desire of his and the insurgents have scared him because he thought thoy were going to tight it Lately he has accomplishfgents but by getting them to help the rest of the party to pass those laws Thclo o thetaallthink ho docs not go for enough but they are for him as tar as he goe So when ho suggested that It they legislatly0le usualtwlld1 lJresIa result the insurgents have onnoun lecell that they will go Into caucus with the majority with certain res ervations These are such that it will be pretty certain that thoy are not walking Into a Cannon trap Asa matter of fact It tho caucus roa11 works at all It will be a great victory 7or the Insurgents for it will mean that the course of the legislation In the House will be controlled by the Republican majority directly and not by the Rules Committee appoint ed by Cannon and noting under his orders So at present the laurels ore still with the Insurgents and there Is prospect of a plan being worked out which will result once more In party harmony So far so good but In this hnPP government of ours there are always a few flies In the cream Most these little unpleasnat anlmalq just sucIcesssome pretty tight holes and it is understood that he has their promiseI for a definite and gramme of legislation For thol sweet sakes and the sake of thl oralLthruout the country and has slake the help he could naturally expec from tho older friends of good gove mont Also he has mado many ap pointments to

people and not of the exploiters The Democrats Joined In tho Republcan applause whoa the message was road Meanwhile opposition is already developing against the railroad bill which Taft had prepared This time tho opposition is from the cxtrwue j radicals like Cummins who do not think the bill goes far enough This opivoslllon is in the committee and ft It continues It will bo necessary toI get Democratic help before the bill can bo reported as had to be done I In the case of tho Hepburn law a few years ago Opposition of the reformers to the bill Is based on two points First that It permits what Is known as pooling agreements among the rail roadsa thing which has always been illegal and which the roe want very much Friends of Presi dent Taft claim that these agreements would be good and not bad and tin this should be a strengthening rather than a weakening feature of tho moo itmIn spite of the Presidents message blsg roadd the right to buy up the stock and control the smaller ones

United States Ono of tho most striking arguments for temperance reform says Mr IsA Brady Is to bo found In certain cold dispassionate statistics Issued by tho United States census bureau Those figures show that Intemperance ns either a direct or contributing cause was responsible for moro than 19 per cent practically onefifth of all divorces granted In the United States during tho 20 years between 18871906 inclusive says Literary Digest Since I at tho present rato at toast every twelfth marriage ends in divorce wo got n proportion of one homo In every Gl wrecked by drink Moreover the census authorities themselves accord tag to Mr Brady admit that those fig urns represent only tho most flagrant and palpable Instances on tho part which Intemperance plays in divorce and that greater percentages than those actually given would bo nearer the truth The detailed figures as forth In tho census bulletin are letffollows Drunkennes was the sole cause of divorce In 3CB1C cases or 89 per cent of the total number of divorces 1887 to 1906 It was a cause In combina lion with some other cause In 17765 cases or 10 von cent of tho total number Therefore it was n direct cause either alone or In combination with other causes In 64281 cases or 57 per cent of tho total Of divorces granted to tho wlfo the percentage for drunkonnos either alone or In com bination with other causes was 79 of those granted to tho husband the corresponding percentage 14 Tho attempt was mado to ascer lain also the number of cases In which drunkennes or Intemperance although not a direct ground for the divorce was an Indirect or contribu tory cause The number of such cases was returned as U02S7 representing 138 per cent of the total number of divorces Probably this number In eludes those oases In which the fact of Intemperance vas alleged in the bill ot complaint or established by evi dence although not specified among tho grounds for which the divorce was granted Tho remaining cases are those In which there was no reference to in temperance or no evidence that In temperance existed as a contributory cause In some of these eases the roe lord was so meager that the abttnco of any mention of Intemperance would Justify no conclusions lint In tho majority of instances It would create a strong presumption that Intemper 1ance did not exist or was sot a eon l tributary cause CHURCH AID IN

Streams With ret to the public land which lies along the stream offering opportunity tn convert water power into tmnimlMilble electricity another Important plea of the public land quealMin I presented There are val iMbl water power sites through all the public land states The opinion Is held that the transfer of loverelgnty from the federal government to the territorial governments All they beeome tats Included the water power In the rivers except so far as that owned by rlpMrlnn proprietors I do not think It necessary to go Into dlsoumlon of this somewhat mooted question of law It seems to me vutnelent to say that the man who owns and control the land along the stream from which the power is to be converted and tran mlttvd owns tend which II Indispens able to the conversion and use of that power I cannot conceive how the power In streams lowing through pub lie lands can be made available at all except by using the land Itielf au the site for the construction of the plant by which the power la generated and converted and securing a right of way thereover for tranatnUslon linen Un der theae condition If the government owns the adjacent land Indeed If the government la the riparian owner It may control the use of the water power by Imposing proper conditions on the dlipoaltlon of the land neceaaary In the creation and utilisation of the water powerValue of Water Power The development In electrical appll apices for the conversion of the water- power Into electricity 10 be transmitted long distances ItAl progressed to far that It is no longer problematical but It la a certain Inference that In the future the power of the water falling In the streams to a large silent will take lIe place of natural vets In the deposition of the domain already granted many water- power sites have tome under absolute ownership and may drift Into one own ership M that all the water power under private ownership shall be n monopoly If hoe ver the water power sites now owned by the government aa l there are mtounh of themthall be disposed of to private persons for the Investment of their capital III such n way as to prevent their union for purpose of monopoly with other water power site and under condition that shall limit the right of use to not exceeding thirty year wllh renewal privileges and some equitable means of fixing terms of rental awl with proper mean for determining a reasonable grad uated rental It would seem entirely pos sible to prevent the absorption of these most useful lends by a power monopoly As long III the government retains eon trot and can prevent their Improper union with other plants competition mutt be maintained and prices kept reasonable Soils Must Be Conserved In considering the conservation of the natural resources of the country the fea lure that transcends all others Including woods waters minerals Is the soil of the country It Is Incumbent jpon the government to foster by all available meant the resources of the country that produce the toed of the people To this end the conservation of the tolls of the country should be cared for with all mean at the governments disposal Their productive ourpowersscientist we soils

tolls find grasses and legumes for all frit feed grains and mill feeds on the farms where they originate that the tails rats which they come may be en richedA of the utmost Importance to In form and Instruct the public on this chief branch of the conservation of our ie sources Is being carried on successfully In the department of agriculture but It ought not to escape public attention that state action In addition to that of the department of agriculture as for Instance In the drainage of swamp lards Is es sential to the beat treatment of the soils In the monitor above Indicated Tha act br which In semiarid parts of the publln domain the area of the home stead hu beer enlarged from ICO to 129 acres has resulted mot beneficially In the extension or dry farming and In the demonstration which has been made of the pceirlblllty through a variation In the character and mode of culture nf raising substantial crops without the pretence of such a supply of water as has been heretofore thought to be neces sary for agriculture Hut there are millions of acres of completely arid land In the public domain which by the establishment of reservoirs for the storing of water and the Irri gation of the lands may be made much more fruitful and productive than the best lands In a climate where the mois lure comes from the clouds Congress reeognlzed the Importance of this method of artificial distribution of water on the arid lands by the passage of the reclama tlon act The proceeds of the public lands creates the fund to build the work needed to store and furnish the neces sary water and It was left to the secretary of the Interior to determine what projects should be started among those suggested and to direct the reclamation service with the funds nt hand and through the engineers In Us employ to construct the work No one can vIMt the far west and the country of arid and semiarid lands with out being convinced that this la one of the most Important methods of the con servation of our natural resources that the government has entered upon It would appear that over J9 projects have been undertaken and that a few of these are likely to be unsuccessful be cause of lack of water or for other reason but generally the work which has been done has been well done and many Important engineering problems have been met and solved Funds Inadequate for Service One of the difficulties which hat arisen Is that too many projects In view of the available funds have been set on foot The funds available under the reclamation statute ere Inadequate to complete these projects within a reasonable time And yet the projects have been begun settlers have been Invited to take up and In many instances have taken up the public land within the projects relying upon their prompt completion The failure to complete the projects for their benefit Is In effect a breach of faith and leaves them In a most distressed con dition I urge that the nation ought to afford the means to lift them out of the very desperate condition In which they now are This condition does not Indicate any excessive waste or any corruption on the part of the reclamation service It only indicates an overzealous desire to extend the benefit of reclamation to aa many acres and as many states as possible I recommend therefore that authority be given to issue not exceeding II6000640 of bonds from time tn time an the secretary of the Interior shall find It necessary the proceeds to be applied to the comple inn of the projects already begun and their proper extension and the bonds running ten years or more to be taken up by the proceeds of returns to the reclamation fund which returns as the years go on will Increase rapidly In amount There Is no doubt at all that If these bonds were to be allowed to run ten year the proceeds from the public lends together with the rentals for water furnished through the completed enterprises would quickly create a sinking fund large enough to retire the bonds within the time specified I hope that while the statute shall pro yule that these bonds are to be paid nut of the reclamation fund It will be drawn In sueh a way as tn secure In terest at the lowest rate and that the credit of the United States will be pledged for their redemption I urge consideration of the recom mendAtlons of the secretary of the Interior In his annual report for amendments of the reclamation act rope Ilnlr other relief for settles on these projectsNew Law Requisite Respecting the comparatively small timbered arras on the public domain not Included In national forests because of their Isolation or their special value for agricultural or mineral purposes It Is apparent from the evils resulting by virtue cf the imperfections of existing laws- for the disposition of timber lands that the acts of June So 37g should be roe pealed and a law enacted for the dispo sition of the timber at public wile the lands after the removal of the timber to tie subject to appropriation under the agricultural or mineral UmrSaw epitomebfof the Interior In respect to the future conservation of the public domain In his present annual report He has given close attention to the problem of dltpotl Ion of these land under such conditions as to Invite the private capital necessary to their development on the one hand and the maintenance of the restrictions necessary to prevent monopoly and abuse from absolute ownership on the other These recommendations are Incorporated In sins he has prepared ami they are at the disposition of the congress I earnestly recommend that all the suggeitloni which he has made with respect to these lands shall be embodied In statutes and especially that the withdrawals already made shall pre validated so far as neesary and that doubt all to the authority of the secretary of the Interior to withdraw lands for the purpose of submitting recommendations as to future disposition of them where new legislation Is needed thill be made complete and unquestioned Disposition of Forest Reserves The forest reserves of the United States some 190WOOC acres In extent are under the control of the deportment of agriculture with authority adequate to preserve them and to extend their growth so tar at that may be practicable The Importance of the maintenance of our forests cannot be exaggerated The pout bility of a scientific tieatment of forests so that they shall be made to yield a lerge return In timber without really re during the supply has been demonstrated In other countries and we should work toward the standard set by them as far as their methods are applicable to our conditionsUpwards of four hundred millions acres of forest land lit this country lire In private ownership but only three per cent of It Is being treated scientifically and with a view to the maintenance of the toccata The part played by the forests In the equalization of the supply of water on watersheds Is a matter of discussion sod dispute but the general benefit to be derived by the public from the extension of forest lands on watersheds and the promotion of the growth of trees tn places that are now denuded and that once had great flourishing forests goes without saying The control Ik be exer cised over private owners In their treat meat of the forests which they own Is a matter for state and not national regu lotion because there Is nothing In the constitution that authorizes the federal government to exercise any control over forests within n state unless the forests are owned In a proprietary way by the federal government Improvement of River I come now to the Improvement of th Inland waterways He would be Mind Indeed who did sat realize that the pee pie of the far west and especially those of the UlttlsslpH valley have been aroused to the need there Is for the Improvement of our Inland waterways The Mississippi river with the Missouri OD the one hand and the Ohio on the other would seem to offer a great natural means et Interstate transportation and tram lion far If property Improved they would relieve the railroads or sup plement them In respect to the bulkier and cheaper commodities Is a matte er conjecture No enterprise ought to b undertaken the cost of which le not def initely ascertained and the benefit and advantage of whine are not known and assured by competent engineers and other authority When however a project ot- a definite character for the Improvement of A waterway has been developed so that the plans have been drawn the cost definitely estimated and the traffic which will be accommodated Is reasonably probable I think It is the duty of congress to undertake the project and make provision therefor In the proper ap propriation bill One of the projects which answers the description I have given Is that of Intro ducing dams Into the Ohio river Trom Ilttaburg to Cairo to as to maintain at all season of the year by slack water ft depth of nlno feet Upward of seven of these dams have already been con strutted and six are under construction while the total required Is CO The remaining cost Is known to be 0000000 It seems to me that In the development of our Inland waterways It would be wile to begin with this particular project and carry It through as rapidly as maybe I assume from reliable Information that It can be constructed economically In ten yearn I recommend therefore that the public lands In river and liar bor bills make provision for continuing contracts to complete this Improvement and I shall recommend In the future If It be necessary that bond be Issued to carry It through What has been said of the Ohio river Is true In a less complete way of the Improvement of the upper Mississippi from St Paul to St Louis to a constant depth of six feet and of the Missouri from Kansas City to St Louis to a constant depth of six feet and from St Louts to Cairo of a depth of eight fest These projects have been pronounced practical by competent boards of army engineers their cost has been estimated and there Is business which will follow the Im provementAs Improvements are being made and the traffic encouraged by them show Itself of sufficient Importance the Im provement of tho Mississippi beyond Cairo down to the gulf which Is now going on with the maintenance of a depth of nine feet everywhere may be changed to another and greater depth If the nec s- Illy nor It shall appear to arise out of the traffic which can be delivered on the river at CairoCheap Rail Rate Necessary I am Informed that the Investigation by the waterways commission In Europe shows that the existence of a waterway by no means assures traffic unless there M traffic adapted to water carriage at cheap rates at one end or the other of the stream It also appears In Europe that the depth of tho streams Is rarely more than six feet and never more than nine But It Is certain that enormous quantities of merchandise are transported over the rivers and canals In Germany and France and England and It Is also certain that the existence of such meth ods of traffic materially affects the rates which the railroads charge and It Is the best regulator of those rates that we have not even excepting the governmental regulation through the Interstate commerce commission For this reason 1 hope that this congress will take such steps that It may be called the Inaugu rator of the new system of Inland water ways For reasons which It is not nec essary here to state congress has seen fit to order an Investigation Into the In tenor department and the forest service of the agricultural department The re sults of that Investigation are not needed to determine the value of and the nee cessity for the new legislation which 1 have recommended In respect to the public land and In respect to reclamation I earnestly urge that the measures be take en up and disposed of promptly without awaiting the Investigation which has been determined upon

Introduced as Yet Look- Ing to Replenishing the Empty State Treasury Bills Launched to Carry the Good Roads Amendment Into EffectNo Redistricting Proposition i Likely This Session BY J H STUART Frankfort KySpcclaljIt Is a mighty hard matter to guess how much work or how little real work a legislature will do judging by tho way It starts In at the beginning of tho session Tho present body ls taking things rather slow at the start and ono would bo Induced to believe that but little Important legislation will bo enacted but a legislature Is about as uncertain as a jury and this one may perk up In a few days and get very busy passing some of tho many hundreds of bills that will bo Introduced Nearly 300 bills nave al ready been put In the hopper but not ono In ten o them will over reach tho governor Among tho Important measures that have been offered since last week are the following i Act designating electrocution as tho means of Inflicting all death sen tences and providing that tho electro cution shall take place In the peal tentiary instead of In tho county where the man Is Act to prohibit conlctedIbuckctshops and for a violation of tho law In that re aped I Act appropriating 186000 for addl tional buildings on tho state fair grounds In Louisville I Act creating the ofllco of state steam boiler Inspector at a salary of 2400 a year Act to repeal tho dog tax law and another bill to Increaso tho dog tax to 2 per head i Act providing that where a flows paper Is sued for libel the suit must be brought either In the county where the newspaper Is published or In tho county where the plaintiff resides I Act appropriating 150000 to erect buildings for a medical school in con nection with tho State university and 45000 annually to maintain tho school and Act bulldlnglItrials the diet of guilty or not guilty and If found guilty the judge shall fix the length of the sentence the convicted thoIIndeterminate sentence law Act to provide pay for jurors who are summoned but who do not servo Act appropriating 25000 a year for premiums at a second state fair to bo known as tho Blue Grass State Fair at Lexington Act to regulate the operation of tol ephone companies by requiring them to connect with other lines Another act putting telephone and telegraph companies under control of the rail road commission like railroads are nowImatter of tho legislators get IThe salaries paid for this ses slon has not been settled yet and no bill has been Introduced looking to replenishing tho empty stato treas ury Tho scnato and house commit tees appointed to confer with the auditor and treasurer and advise them what to do reported that It was tho province of tho legislature to tell executive officers what to do and that as no legislation had been nuked for the legislature had no advlco to give The committee did say however i In their report that they did not Indorse tho using of the school money to pay any salaries or other i claims on the treasury and that the attorney general had expressed tho theIrants Tho have had little or no effect In deter ring the Introduction of appropriation i bills for already before tho members havo barely warmed their seats bills asking for appropriations amounting I to over 600000 have been offered and their passage will be urged most strongly This In the face of the fact that tho deficit In tho treasury right I now Is about 1000000 leads to the conclusion that some of the members I at least have gone appropriation mad Tho WyattBosworth good roads amendment having been adopted to the constitution these two senators have introduced bills to carry tho amendment Into effect whereby tho state may aid the counties to build good roads Tho first bill provides for a state tax of 5 cents on the 100 to create a good roads fund In the state treasury This fund will not bo distributed Indiscriminately but will bo proportioned to each county need ing It In the same ratio as the amount the county Itself raises for road bg11ding If a countydccUnes to vote a tax Itself to build roads then It will not get any of the state fund Under no clrcumstanceawlH the state pay more than onethird of tho cost of constructing any road In any coun ty Another bill following In the same line provides for tho manner or establishing and maintaining public roads raising revenue by the coun ties to help construct tho roads and creates tho offices of stato commis sioner of roads and county engineer It Is believed that If these bills pass and become tho law It will be but a comparatively short tlmo till Ken tucky will havo as good roads all over the state as any of her slater states have now Tho cost of maintaining the magnificent now statehouse Is likely to make some of tho legislators open their eyes when thoy remember how little was formerly spent on tho al leged upkeep of tho old stato build lag In tho first place tho oM build never were kept any ways de lings and everything about tho build- Ings was always covered with dirt and dust probably because no appropriation was ever asked for or made to keep things clean The last legislature made an appropriation of 16 000 a year for electricians engi floors janitors scrubbers and other needed laborers and It will tako all of that sum to keep the building In as clean and neat condition as It Is now being kept That Is not near all tho expense however for the cost of running the power house where all the light and heat Is made mounts up mighty fast when several hundred bushels of coal are consumed everyday Add to this the cost of keeping tho machinery of the power house In repair and the total expense will be several thousands a year moro than It cost to keep fires and lights In the old buildings But just think what a difference Everything In tho new building Is as clean as a now pin It has every convenience In the way of lights heat and water thus making It a real pleasure to occupy It Indications point very strongly to the conclusion that no legislative redistricting bill will be passed at this session A number of Democrats came hero with tho firm Intention of voting for some sort of a redistrict Ing measure but when It was sug gested to thorn that If they passed such a bill now the census that Is to be taken this year would likely make the new districts appear as onesided In somo Instances as the present district that are so much complained of a number of them changed their minds and are now willing to wait till next session As the Democrats have 73 out of tho 100 members In tho house and 26 of tho 38 senators it does look a little blue for the redistricting matter this session One of Governor Wlllsoni hobbles Is tho bipartisan board of control for tho states charitable Institutions which has been In operation for two years The board Is composed of two Republicans and two Democrats and tho present law says that status as to politics must be maintained Gover nor Wlllson says the board has dono fine work for tho state and Is very anxious to have It continued just an It Is but a number of Democrats want tho board put back like It was beforo last session nil Democrats To do this It would be necessary to pass a new law but a number of tho friends of the two Democrats now on tho board would not vote for tho new bill To win over these friends of tho two members of tho board It Is now proposed to pledge a majority of tho Democrats to vote to retain tho two men on tho board and elect two other Democrats to take the places of tho two Republicans Whether this scheme will result In abolishing the bipartisan board can not bo foretold this early In the sesalonAFormer Lieutenant Governor W P Thorne of Henry county and a Democrat was In Frankfort last week and was Invited by resolution to address tho senato Ho accepted and mado ono of his characteristic humorous talks Ho told his fellow Democrats that thoy must bo powerful cau tious what they did this winter for as ho put It you know wo Demo crats always do some darn tool thing at the wrong time that puts us In bad for the next election Ho took occasion to say also that ho did not believe much In bipartisan boards for ho felt that to the victor belongs the spoils and when tho Republicans win they ought to havo all the offices and when the Democrats win they ought to have the offices The applause ho got from both sides of tho house Indicated that the senators nearly all agreed with him on the spoils proposition 0 Lieutenant Governor Cox of Mays vllle who prpsldes over tho senate Is ono of tho most popular men In the whole legislature and Is deservedly so for he totes fair with every body and all those who know him say hes as straight as a die When Governor Wlllson takes a trip to New York next month Cox will be tho acting governor and It has been planned when that time comes the senate will take a recess one day and go to the governors office In a body and make an official callous their pro Isiding officer and congratulate Him on being the governor of Kentucky
