guarantees freedom of the press because our forefathers knew that a free people in order to govern themselves intelligently must be informed correctly of public affairs The newspaper which tells the truth however unpleasant about public life and public men is therefore a servant and friend of the people while one which lies for the benefit of any faction party or nina is a traitor to the nation thru its attempt to defile the sources of public opinion It is a patriotic duty for every good citizen to support truth telliug newspapers and to oppose and suppress those which are maintained for private interests KILLING THE COUNTY UNIT BILL Legislaturethispledgedthoto defeat that bill and it will only be by the utmost exertion and thru the support of the good people everywhere that the Senators and Legislators who are for the bill will succeed in passing it A favorite way of killing bills against which legislators willnot dare to vote openly is to give that bill into the bonds of a Committee which will not report it back to the legislative body for action No billnot reported back can ever be voted on Such a committee has been framed up in the ntuckysenDteit is the Committee on Religion and Public Morals So when the County Unit Bill was giveu into the hands of that Committee lust week it was sent to its deathand every senator who voted on the question of referring the bill to that committee knew it We print a list of the senators showing how they voted on that bill so that our readers can know whether the man they sent to the senate is keeping his promise to them Every

food have been steadily going up for the last fourteen years the attention of the public has at last been thoroly called to the facts for the first time and the whole country is ablaze with excitement over tho matter All kinds of movements are being started to cause reductions in cost and political leaders are reckoning with fear of the effect which ffce agitation will Lave on the November election To get at the beginning of the trouble we must go back four teen years In that time prices of a few staples have increasedas follows Wheat 100 per cent corn 106 per cent flour 66 per cent eggs 204 percent butter 153 per cent potatoes 100 per cent and so on Every one who buys these things has to pay the increased costbut every one denies that they are making any more profit on the sale of them The question which is agitating the world is Where does the money goY So far there has been no answer to the question Some claim it is the trust and there is a suspicion that they are making a good thing out of it Some claim it is the tariff but prices are going up just the same in England where there is no tariff Some claim it is that men are getting higher wages but tables seem to show that wages do not go up an fast aa prices Some claim that it is because we are using more luxuries than before and are living better but the prices on the commonest necessaries of life are going up just the same Who gets the money and why The government is taking a little hand iu the matter and will try to break up the beef trust to see if that will help prices But if they do while it will help city people it will hurt farmers some what Also they may not succeed A more effective way is being tried in the cities where hundreds of thousands of families are sign ing pledges to eat no meat for n month or two ill the hopo that it will force tho trust to bring the prices down It has already had that effect but there seems to be good reason to believe that the result priceIgo up you are The political effect is likely to be very important Since the last InoreaHo has followed the tariff revision Boclosely a great many people will think that the trouble is with the tariff There eeems no good reason to believe this because prices are acting tho same way in England where there is no tariff at alland iu France where the tariff has not been changed for years But Republican leaders lire seeing with alarm that our party may have to carry the burden of the higher prices in the next campaign It is to bo hoped that some one will find out where the trouble really is before that time

sent by a friend to take charge of an American Trading Company store In Russia On his Journey through Japan he met Stapleton Neville sup posedly an Englishman They agreed to co together to Russia Because of sus picious circumstances they were several times molested by the Japanese Hardy was arrested and found upon his person were papers showing maps of Jap forts lardy was proven guiltless On a train hft met Alsome Bano daughter of a Jap merchant In Nevilles shoes Jap found pictures of forts roving him to be a Russian spy Hardy departed for Rus sia on a steamer which was wrecked afterward lie was rescued by Vladlj CHAPTER VII- 2akouska The Russian steamer that took Har dy into Vladivostok was an Iron tub of the tramp variety and not a soul on board could speak a word of any tongue ever heard before by the Amer- Ican He soon became aware how ever that the redfaced burly captain and his two officers meant to be kind to him and that their Idea of friend liness consisted principally In getting him to eat and drink as much and as frequenUy as possible After vainly attempting to converse with him and learning only that he was American the captain led him to the dining room and Introduced him to one of the I great Institutions of Russia the za konska a lunch of horsdoeuvres washed down with much strong drink At one end of the room near the sideboard a table was set spread with dishes of sardines sardels caviar chunks of pickled flab sandwiches and shrimp In bottles The captain poured out two generous bumpers of a white liquid Into glasses handed one to Hardy clinked and drained the contents of the other at a gulp liar dy swallowed the liquid and the tears came into his eyes be nearly stran gled lie looked about for water but In vain He was to learn soon that water for drinking and washing pur poses is the one thing most difficult of all to obtain In Holy Russia Zakouska lasted off and on for about an hour By combining the utmost firmness+ with evident good nature Hardy man aged to pull through without getting drunk thereby accomplishing a feat quite remarkable In a foreigner accepting Russian hospitality The next afternoon they entered the magnificent harbor of Vladivostok passing the high rock crowned with a lighthouse that stands as a sentinel at Its mouth The city not visible till the last moment burst suddenly on Hardys view and gave him a very favorable impression of the country Into which he bad come to live and to retrieve It possible his shattered fortunes Hero crowning the hills that dominate the harbor was a modern European city of houses many of them several stories In height evi dently built of brick and stone A cou pie of men ofwar very trim in their white paint besides numerous mer chant vessels flying the Russian flag lay at anchor In tho bay while several Chinese sampans and a junk two drifting about bore witness orI here the extremes of the east and west meet and overlap Two or three of the sampans indeed floated up to Hardys ship as alto cast anchor and their longcued owners made clamor ous application to carry nay one ashore who might wish tc go Hardy had already picked out the Celestial whose appearance bost suited him wondering whether he would take Japanese money wheu he noticed a eteam launch rapidly approaching and A cheerful voice balled him Is that an American on board thorn Yes Hardy shouted back thrill- Ing with sudden delight at the sound of his mothertongue how did you knowBy the cut of your clothes Where is your baggage In my cabin AH right said the man In the launch Ill have It brought out Got in hero and Ill take you nehow A few words of gruff Russian tc thoI captain and Hardys trunks and bag gage were brought out and five minutes later he was flying ashore In theI launch of the American Trading Com panyAs he was leaving the captain dashed up and wrung his hand asking anxiously Zakouskalie to know explained Har dy leaning over the rail It I want moro znkouska Ivo had zakouska enough to last roe a lifetime What shall I tell him 7IToll him nyet came tho reply and the American shook the hands of the captain and his two kindhearted officers vigorously repeating many times NyotJ mot nyat nyvstl CHAPTER VIII Enter the Princess I want to go to the American con suls sold Hardy as soon as I land and then I should like to get located in a hotel till I can catch the first comfortable steamer up tho river Its tit i fortunate for me you came out to take me off for my knowledge of Russian is as yet rather limited You can start up the river day after tomorrow replied the Vladi vostok agent on tho Alexsay which goes as far as Blagovestchensk You will be quite comfortable on her and will be likely to get a room all to yourself as I understand she Is not crowdedThat will suit me perfectly said Hardy I see no reason for lingering here fascinating as the town looks any longer than It necessary By the way volunteered the oth er you will have quite a distin guished traveling companion if you go on tho Alexsay the Princess Ro manovna who has been here visiting her relative Gen Romanoff She has made a sensation in the garrison so ciety here Shes a stunninglooking womanWomen do not interest me re wl + Gracefully Car plljd Hardy I came here to work not to mingle In fashionable society and anyhow suddenly nfoieraborlng changed fortunesIt Is not likely that a princess would become wild ly enthusiastic over a storekeeper The next morning Hardy took his place in the railway train bound north through Siberia for Khabarovka on the Amur lie had obtained a first class compartment and sat waiting for the train to pull out on schedule time eight oclock The hour arrived but the train not move A quarterpast haltpast and still there wero no signs of do parturo At last impatient he arose and stopped out into the long narrow hall that ran the entire length of the car An Intelligentlooking Russian was pacing up ana down and him Hardy asked in tho best French at his commandWhat Is tho matter Why do wo not startOn replied tho Russian they are waiting for tho Princess Ro manovuaah here she comes now The American looked from tho wIn- dow A droshky was driving up and Iin It sat n tall slender and exquisite ly graceful woman fairly smothered In costly flowers that filled the carriage and were piled beside her on the seat Her face was of tho purest Russian type her complexion was marvelous her oyos were a laughing blue and her hair was of tho color of rlpo wheatBy Jovo sighed Hardy but shes a thoroughbred and a beauty too The princess took plenty of time her adieus after which she languidly and gracefully entered the car The officers brought her flowers In to her and descended to the platform where they stood in an adoring and sorrow ful group their caps in their hands I And then her highness the Princess I F Romanovna being aboard the train started slowly on its 500mile journey to Khabarovka CHAPTER IX Into Slbera The journey into Slbera was begun Sibera that vast mysterious region whose very name has come to be synonymous with all that Is most dreaded by the human race exllo eternal farewells the clanking ofI chains over endless frozen roads the knout despair all tho horrors of a living death I Hardy sat In his compartment of one of the firstclass cars and gazed from the window eagerly scanning the landscape for some sign or evidence of the things that had given the country its sinister reputation His first Impression as the train left Vladivostok behind was a complete refutation of all preconceived notions daEntered the his did for There wore no convicts anywhere in sight no fields of Ice or snow In stead ho was journeying on a pleas ant summers day through a vividly green prairie wide as tho eye could roach where fat cattle waded up to their knees in lush grass and yellow dandelions as large as tea saucers and fierce tlgcrllllos swayed and nodded by tho million In the balmy breeze He had expected to find some thing different somehow In the as pect of Sibera itself something sinis ter and forbidding Yet this save for tho greater luxuriance of the vegota tion and the profusion and brilliancy of the flowers might have been a stretch of Minnesota or Manitoba Weary at last of sitting Hardy went out Into the long hall at one side of the car and walked up and down Hero ho found the Russian who spoke French also promenading and squeezed against tbo wall several times to lot him pass Pardon monsieur said this gen tleman as the train stopped but wo remain here long enough to take I zakouska Perhaps you feel tho need of refreshment Do you know what the zakouska Is Oh yes replied Hardy laughing I know what zakouska is very well I should indeed like some Have you secured your compart ment on tho Alexeoy asked the Rus sianNo replied Hardy why Will the boat bo crowded- I hardly think so but the Princess Romanovna Is going on her and it is likely that all tho best accommoda tions will have been reserved for her Fortunately she does not seem to be traveling with much of a suite Her highness will probably require two or three cabins for herself a couple for her baggage ono for each of her two maids and ono for her ma- nn k And will she be given all this oven If the rest of us are compelled to sleep on the decks Certainly replied tho Russian Her highness Isher hlghnesc Hardy was about to declaim against a government where tho aristocracy enjoyed such privileges but fortunately his French was not quite equal to his indignation and In the moment of hesitation ho remembered Consul Greeners warning And who in the world is tho Princess Romanovna ho asked with a slight tinge of sarcasm Ho would havo liked to say who In tho dick ens but ho did not know tho French for tho dickens The Princess Romanovna ex plained the Russian belongs to one of tho oldest families in the empire She is a distant relative of tho czar who is my Imperial masterand hero ho took his hat off She is Immensely rich and has city palaces at Mos cow and Petersburg besides a country estate near tho former city She Is as wealthy as she is beautiful She must bo very wealthy then said the American with conviction Tho Russian smiled Monsieur speaks the truth he said Ho is also like all Americans very gallant When wo take zakouska again wo will drink to the Princess Romanovna With pleasure said Hardy After two very comfortable nights the train bearing Frederick Courtland Hardy arrived about noon at Kha barovka on tho lordly Amur It had been raining and the low wooden sta tion resembled an ark stranded In seas of black mud Hardy found an agent of the com pany awaiting him here a San Franciscan who nearly fell on his neck at seeing a fellow countryman and hearing again tho English language spoken Ho did not know that Amer leans could become so demonstrative Ills goods were loaded upon a telega a sort of long boat upon wheels and without springs and were sent away to the Alexsay at its wharf two or three miles distant while Hardy and the agent took seats In a droshky and tore furiously away to tho companys store over rocks and through ruts HaOffe rthe to the and puddles tho mud spraying In a centrifugal shower from tho bumping und whizzing wheels Tell him to drive slower shouted Hardy We have plenty of time No power bn earth could make a Russian cabman drlvo slow replied the agent they are the lineal de scendants of Jehu and their speed la a part of their natures You might as well try to make tho Amur run up hillThat night In darkness as black as ink and in n drizzling rain Hardy went on board tho Alexsay to begin his long Journey up tho Amur Tho water tho agent Informed him was rising owing to tho recent rains and there would bo little of ground- Ing Tho trip to Blagnvestchensk should bo made in five days There Is a llttlo splco of danger at tending the journey said the agent on taking leavo the ship that went up ahead of this was fired on by Manchurian brigands I saw several bullet holes In her sldo myself made by rifle balls But I hardly think you need fool much apprehension Slnco the Cossacks destroyed Algun and killed every living man woman and child that could not got away the Chinese have been pretty quiet That taught them n lesson they will not soon forget I have heard It rumored that they have been somewhat em boldoned of lato by Japanese agita tors who are working among thorn The Japanese they tell mo are talk Ing of war with Russia Foolish pea pie Tho Russians would eat them up Japan would bo a Russian prov ince two months after tho declaration of hostilities Twould be n pity t Japan is a picturesque country as I remember It Hardy laid under his bed that night an American rlflo the property of tho Trading Company taken by tho agents advice from tho stares In Khabarovka Ho slept soundly but had n vivid dream of tho Prlncocs Romanovna and Aisomo racing over n Siberian meadow tho one In a droshky and the other In a jinrikisha CHAPTER X Her Highness Smiles The trip from Khabarovka to Bla govcstchonsk occupied five days and was uneventful when compared the moro exciting happenings that b foll Courtland Hardy and his follo passengers farther on Still two 0 three things occurred worthy o record one at least that Hardy him self regarded as epochal In his lifo Ho came Into direct contact with tho Princess Romanovna and acquired a nodding acquaintance with her A this befell on tho first day out and as she nodded to him once each day namely in tho morning his good for tune brought to him four nods and as many very sweet smiles between Kha barovka and Blagoveatchensk It was perhaps fortunate that ho could not TrRevolver General I danger rs talk to her as she might have dls courngedany advances Anything of this kind would have hurt his pride for the Courtland Hardys maintain the fiction of family superiority and In their hearts believe themselves just as good as anybody as tho old song says of My Aunt Sally It was during ono of the long delays caused by tho necessity of taking on wood that Hardys acquaintance with the princess began The Aloxsay was a sternwheeler drawing 3V4 foot of water and she stopped five or six times each 24 hours for a fresh fuel supply themon bringing it two and two on long bars down tho steep bank and across the springy plank to tho deck Learning that there would bo a stop of About throe hours Hardy went out i +i with ono Julius Smolders to take a long walk In tho woods to gather wild flowers and to catch a sight of ono of tho cuckoos that fill tho forests of Siberia with thorn strange cries ox acty as though millions of Invisible Swiss clocks worn hanging amonu tho trees On their return the two men hoard tho scund of shooting My God cried tho American his Taco blanching as he thought of th princess I nollovo the brigands have attacked tho boat Ho ran tovard tho sound followed by Smuldor and behold Gen Catkoft shooting at a bottlo on a stump at n distance of 20 paces The general was military governor of Irkutsk now on his way to his post from which ho had boon absent three months Ho was a gray corpulent man with a kindly face the only person aboard 00of sufficient rank to associate inti mately with tho princess In whom bo seemed to take a fathorly Interest Ho fired now five times and missed much to the amusement of the princess who stood near In fact her dorlslvo laughter so Irritated tho pompous general that he throw the weapon spitefully on tho ground and began to explain volubly to his fair tormentor What does ho say askod tho Gor man of a Viennese opera singer from Vladivostok who was also ono of tho spectators and a moment later ho- I explained to Hardy Ho says Its an American pistol from Vladivostok nnd that Its no goodCourtland Hardy picked up tho weapon and examined it It was not practicaletossedwsaidfto present my com pllments to the general and tell him that I am an American and beg the privilege of proving the excellence of weaponsAs tho Viennese addressed the gen cinl Hardy lifted his hat gracefully The princess clapped her little hands nodded pleasantly at the

tho middle of Chrlnta ministry lTACnTho nrldtlonal site Is the Horns of Itnttln two or three miles west of the Sea of Galilee Suggestion and Practical Thought Today we have a vision into tho in nermost spirit of the commandments illustrated by a few examples The Underlying Principle Vs 1720 think not that I am como to destroy the law or the prophets their moral teachings their promises all they stood for In tho nation for these were Oods teachings through them All the glory and tho hopes of tho nation and of tho world were built on the law and the prophets The Pharisees had already accused Jesus of abrogating tho law of Moses Mark 224 John 516 18 Jesus denies tho accusa lion In the strongest language Abrogate the law of Moses Never You Pharisees have abrogated it by your false Interpretations and misap plications I have come to fulfill it 18 For verily I say unto you till j heaven and earth pass away one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law till all things be accom pushed Because tho moral law is as eternal as natural law There is no repealing clause in the New Testa ment that sets aside the Old Testa meat The Sixth Commandment Thou Shalt Not KillVs 2126 Yo have heard In tho synagogues and from the teaching ot tho scribes Said by better to Thou shalt not kilt commit murder In danger ot the judgment Not In tho commandment but In accord with the Jewish laws The Judgment was tho properly con stltuted authorities In this case the local court established by tho san hedrim in every town of Palestine Dout 1C 18 for the trial and punish ment of capital crimes 22 But I Tho I Is emphatic Say unto you The court punished after the crime Jesus would prevent tho beginnings that led to tho crime Tho Principle Illustrated by the Third Commandment Vs 3337 There are two ways of breaking the command Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain 1 By not keeping tho promise made in Gods name for this dishonors the God whom you pretend to serve 2 By a careless and trivial use of tho name of God and religious things which cultivates dlmln fishes their power over men and makes them trivial and unreal in the minds of both speaker and hearer The Scribes interpretation of this commandment was Thou shalt not forswear thyself but shalt perform unto tho Lord thins oaths with the emphasis on tho Lord Tho Principle Illustrated by the Law of Retaliation Vs 3842 An eye for an eye A rule for punishment of offences coming before the civil court and founded In justice much more so than tho modem system ot fines which favors tho rich This rule la found In the lately discovered Code of Hammurabi B C 2000 tooth for tooth eye for eye limb for limb son for son etc 39 But I say Resist not evil or him that is evil The Greek can be read either way Resist not evil by evil but overcome evil with good 1 Smlto thee on thy right cheek turn to him tho other also not liter ally for that would be like the rab bis Intcrprcation but act in that spirit exactly as Christ did to UK man in the trial who struck him with a rod 2 40 If any man will wills to proposes to sue theo at law has some quarrel with you or thinks you have wronged him and wants to go to law about It and would take away thr coat let hIm have thy cloak also Love tho Fountain and Source of All These Manifestations of the Chris than Life Vs 4347 Ye have heard It Is the common teaching Thou shalt love thy neighbor Lev 1918 Scod teaching as far as it went But It was limited 1 by their definition of neighbor as applying to thoso ot their own race and religion and not extending to nil with whom they came in contact and 2 by their addition of and hate thlno enemy The Ideal and tho GoalV 48 Be ye therefore perfect Tho A V is better hero than tho It V translation

tho senate session lead expired without any evi e dence of friction over tho omnipre sent county unit bill the storm broke on a motion to continue tho session Indefinitely mode by Senator Combs This was followed br parliamentary parleying on the part of both sldoi demands for roll calls on every possi bio motion recapitulations of the votes tho changing o votes and tilts over parliamentary

I In the house Mr Russell Introduced a resolution expressing approval of tho amendment to tbo Sherman anti trust law as Introduced by Congress man Campbell CantrH Mr Ilussoll explained the resolution and stated that the federal amendment referred to looked to the protection of laborers who combine to protect their inter ests either in tho field or In tho city It has especial reference he said to tho protection of the tobacco growers against the trusts Tho resolution calls on the senators and representa lives from Kentucky to support the amendment Mr Zimmerman In sec ondlng the resolution spoke nt con siderable length In favor of it He said the Durloy society socks only the maintenance of fair prices Mr Crete llus In seconding the resolution re sorted to verse Mr Duffy of Harrison said that he bollovod those speaking In favor of tho resolution did not havo the proper conception of tho constitution He said justice requires that tho Sherman antitrust law should stand as It Is or bo repealed lie said ho did not favor legislation for any certain class farmers or otherwise There should bo no discrimination In rlof laborers fnnnerarlcn men or rI ono else Mr Duffy asked Do you want to grind the consumer Between two trusts the Amorlcan Tobacco Co and the Burloy society Mr Zimmerman again spoke and until tho tobacco growers are only seeking the rights guaranteed them by tho constitution and by God Mr Owlngs of Jefferson staid that the rev olution has the democratic ring He concurred In tho resolution Mr Lackey of Trlgg said ho hills from the black patch where four yours

bill will provide that this kind of punishment shall bo meted out to wlfoboatoro and persons found guilty of petit larceny he said I have not quite perfected the bill as yet but I think It will be ready for Introduction shortly The numbor of lashes to bo administer to a person found guilty of wlfobcAtlng or iK tlt larceny shall be determined by tho trial judge but just who will be called upon to admin ister tho whipping I have not yet decided upon State Bank Examiners Another bill that may be Introduced Is ono providing for tho appointment of four Slate bank examiners This bill Is being prepared by Dr lien U Ilruncr secretary of state who Is be ing assisted by others of hla office The bill wlll provide tint the state hunks of Kentucky bo examined twice a year and that each of the proposed slat bank examiners shall receive ap proximately 2000 a year Including traveling expenses Time hill also will provide that each state bank lit as ictRCHl in proportion to its capital surplus nnd undivided profits this money to be used In covering tho expense at- tachedto the office ot stale bank ex aminerThere Is n hitch in tho preparation of the bill however This hits to do with who hull appoint the four slate bank examiners provided the bill is enacted Governor Want Patronage Coy Willson It Is said wants tho bill to provide that the governor shall have tho naming of the four stato bank examiners while others are of the opinion that this patronage should bo given to the secretary of state An argument In favor of this Is that with tho office of Male bank ex aminer under the supervision of tho eecretnry of state tho need ot creat ing n department of state bank exam iner will bo obviated This of course would lesson tho expense attached to tho office of state bank examiner A similar bill to tho ono which Is being prepared by Dr Ben L Brunor was Introduced during the last session of the legislature It failed of passage theImoney on A ma jority of the bankers of Kentucky

Certain Specific Projects RIVALRY AMONG PROMOTERS Civil Service Commission Tired o Moving Makes Plea for Permanent Quarters Army Affairs In Good Shape Washington It Is probable that the rivers and harbors committee of congress will report a bill at this session recommending tho appropria Ion of a good many millions of dol lars for the Improvement of tho water ways of the country It Is yet a mat ter of great doubt however if the sanction of the committee will bo given to certain specific projects In favor of which there has been coun trywide agitation It may be per baps It is safer to say probably will bo the opinion ot the committee that time recommendation for an appropriation to begin the digging of a deep water way from the lakes to the gulf or from Cape Cod to tbo Carolinas shall be put off until the congressional wa terways commission which has been studying tho general subject of com mercial highway Improvements shall have turned In Its report Tho friends of tho deep waterway from Chicago to tho Ends Jetties are active In their methods of promoting the plan which they have at heart The samo thing bold true of the men who want congress to sanction the ship channel from Cape Cod down through tbo coast states to n point somewhere la South Carolina or possibly Georgia There is an Intense amount of rivalry between the promoters of these two great plans but the rivalry Is kept under the surface as much as possible in order that the promotion efforts may not cause con troversy enough to upset the chances of success ot either project Other Highway Projects The Mississippi valley waterway and the coast line waterway are not the only Interior commercial highway plans which have friends In con gress The projects which have been suggested and to a considerable ex tent advanced in planning are numer our The southern states want easier water communication between differ ent points and there aro plans for waterway improvement In the north northwestWhen Taft was In New Orleans at a meeting ot the water ways congress he said a kindly word for the general plan of Improving the rivers of the country but he advised making haste slowly As soon as the president finished his speech and the men who are devoting their tlmo and energies to paving the way for waterway legislation had had tlmo to digest tho remarks they met and In effect made a political Issue out of the cam- paIgn for deeper river channels The political aspect ot the matter has to some extent Influenced con gross and representatives from many districts havo been told In effect that they must use every effort to push waterway improvements oven It their plans seem to be antagonistic to the wishes ot the leaders in congress and of the administration Itself To Investigate Fully Congress always has a way of meet Ing demands for work along certain lines with n seeming approval of their general features but It also has a way of delaying things so that It can be given time for a survey of the field nnd obtaining of an actual knowledge of the needs of the case Tho friends of the plan for an Immediate Improve ment of the waterways say that con gross simply seeks a moans of post ponement hoping that some of the demands mado will bo moderated lie this as It may congress appointed a national waterways commission of which all tho members wore either senators or representatives On this waterways commission are men who are extremely conservative on tho subject nnd mon who havo been Insistent that tho work should bo begun nt once The chairman ot I the committee Senator Theodore E Dutton ot Ohio was for some years prior to his election to time senate chairman of tho house committee on rivers and harbors Mr Burton knows nil about every harbor nnd stream In the United States nnd It Is admitted by time men who think that ho Is too conservative that ho has a pretty clear Idea of the needs ot every locality Senator Lorimer of Illinois has been for ninny years nn active advocate of n ship channel from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico Mr LorImer la impa lent of delay Thoro are other mem bers of tho commission who may bo said to occupy tho middle ground In the matter at stake It is expected that beforo long the commission will make Its roport Merit Board Wants Home As the country has boon told re cently it is probable that congress will investigate the entire civil serv lIt system of the government with n vier ot having both time letter and spirit f of the law apply to promo tions as well ns to appointments It 1111 probable that the civil sorvlro con missioners who are stationed In Washington wish that congress would In addition to investigating the work dies of the Fvstem make a rigid ox amlnntlon of tho building in which obligedtoview to providing for them better quartersThere have been some communica tions sent to congress which In a do scriptive way tho word unique fits admirably but It is likely that no paper intended for any president ever paragraphthan agobythe chief of the nations authorities Tho commissioners are tired of bo- ling moved about from place to place are particularly tired of their present quarters There is some hu shownfan official letter which carries tho sig prosidont the signatures of his fellow commis stoners added Humorous Protest Tho moral element in this propo sition Mr President is worthy of con slderatlon A man is hardly respected head of the family until he owns a root under which ho may gather with his family Any bureau of depart ment of tho government wholly per paretic and without permanent quar tering Is subject to suspicion and a slighting consideration We want to be helped out of this situation This plea borders on pathos but It has a strength of Its own and con grass has been asked to give that heed to tho request of Gen Black and his colleagues which will give them moro room and will be in keeping with tho dignity of their work The day when civil service Is mentioned by members and senators with the sneer of Roscoe Conkllng as snivel service has gono by and while the work of the commissioners has robbed the congressmen of much patronage It is likely that they will seo to it that habitable quarters are given to tho officials and their employes- It Is hardly probable that the coun try realizes the growth of the civil service The employes of tho com- missIon supervise and complete the work ot 1559 local boards composed of 4690 members distributed through out the territorial extent of the United States Hawaii tho Isthmus of Pana ma and the islands of Porto Rica There are now 225000 in the competi live class and In the last fiscal year there were nearly 200000 applications for examinationArmy Meets Favor Congress Is taking more kindly to the army appropriation bill this year than tM boon the case fcr a longtime Secretary of War Dickinson managed to get several millions of dollars from the estimates for the support of the land forces and un der his direction the chiefs of the different bureaus made reductions that have appealed to the members of congress as an evidence that economy this year Is the armys watchword General Leonard Wood before long will be made chief ot staff of the United States army with headquarters In Washington Gen Wood Is the ranking officer of the service It the general were to be ordered into the field In case of war he could have placed under his orders within two months over a halt million Americans armed with the latest type of Amen can rifle tho new model Springfield which is believed by American army officials to be the best weapon known to modern military science The house committee on military affairs at Its hearings on the needs of the army complimented Gen Cro zlor of tbo ordinance department on the marked reductions that he had mado In expenses reductions that tho general showed were possible while they did not tend In any way to decrease the efficiency of the service The committee reported favorably on tho recommendation that a re serve supply of one million rifles of the modern approved type be provid ed When the authorized limit of ono million is reached the manufacture toIIs shown or when new Inventions make new rifles Imperative No Need for Large Army Congress does not believe that the United States will ever need an enor moue army for war purposes It takes It for granted that tho navy will bo able to keep all foreign foes at a dis tance and that being safe from Invas ion tho army of half n million men at the outset will be sufficient to meet any seemingly possible emergency The army officers however look at the matter In another light They say that the most unexpected thing hap pen In military affairs and that it would bo little less than n sin for the United States to be unprepared as It was at the time of the opening ot the Spanish war Congress has been told that there Is no firstclass power other than the United States which cannot put Into the field almost In stantly an army of 3000000 men There Is a much closer relation ex Isilng today than ever before between the regular service and the national guard It is the Intention of tho war department to order the regulars next summer Into camp with regiments of the stato troops In many parts of the country for tho purpose of Instructing the civilian soldiers In tho art of war and of

are merely frac tional luminaries Miss Crocker has 10000000 plus probably n million or two more and some pearl necklaces Miss Crocker Inherited 5000000 from the estate of her father the late Fred Crocker On the death of her sister Mrs Mary Crocker Harrison she Inherited nearly 2000000 and now from the estate of her uncle George Crocker who died In New York she will Inherit between 2500 000 and

HABITlConstant Spread as Narcotic Among Indians Causes Alarm and Some Remedy Is Being Sought The constant spread of tho use of the mescal as a narcotic among the Indians grows alarming and must soon demand widespread attention with n view to discovering some remedy forfthis pernicious habit and some to its growth says the Southern WorkmanMescal is the product of a certain cactus which has long been used In various ways under the name of pel late The form in which It is usedIby tho Indians is tho mescal button a kind of bean very bitter to the taste which is sometimes chewed and some times brewed In a kind of tea When taken in either way it produces mild and delightful hallucinations of such a positive character as to place this plant in the same rank with hasccsh opium or any other of the famous drugs which have produced for men the Joys of an artificial paradise Tho Klowa Indians of the Rio Grande are said to have used the mes cal button from time Immemorial for the purpose of producing a beatific state of mind in connecUon with cer If talc of their religious ceremonies Gradually the practice has spread northward from tribe to tribe The Poncas and some of their neighbors in the Indian Territory and Oklahoma took it up and soon counted many worshippers of this strange god Thence 4 it extended to tho Omahas nebagoes among whom it presyIent constantly gaining now and now the practice is acquiring a foothold among the Sioux The tribes which have longest used it havo IntbeIardor of their devotion sent mission aries to introduce their wonderful neW medicine among other tribes and wherever it becomes known Its allurements I prove Irresistible Clubs aroIformed for social Indulgence in thisinarcotic and for mutual in the rites and ceremonials which al ways accompany its indulgence for tho purpose of giving to it a religious character In some cases tho stu dents returned from eastern and other 1 boarding schools have become mom bers of these clubs The meetings usually aro held in the afternoon After the mysterious cere- monIes in acknowledgment of the se cret power of the strange divinity have taken place the buttons are passed around for chewing four or five to each member and the tea is brewed and drunk Only the novice experiences any nausea or unpleasant Ji sensation and this soon passes oft There ensues only a blissful feeling of I lassitude accompanied by a delicious J sense ot happiness and peace All thoughts of care or trouble or enmity roll away and the devotee is possessed by tho feeling that all men are broth t ers and all tho world Is while his sense of vision is powerrulIly affected so that ho sees changing t 1 and beautiful harmonies of color In I thIng upon which his eyes rest Iuntilpression or other unpleasant results And throughout this saturnalia of the senses and orgy of vision the mind It self remains clear and the devotee Is a selfpossessed spectator of alt his hallucinations One other effect of remarkable drug must be noted thIsrI this brief summary Tho mescal I IliItlIt appeals strongly to the simple mind the Indian No doubt in cases the effect which appeals manyIthe most powerfully Is tho named He loses the desire for whis ky which ho knows has been his un doing Whether the means Justify the end is a question he is little likely to ask Just what steps may best be un dertaken to counteract this pernicious habit are not at onco apparent but the practice is assuming such proportions as to require some action However slight may bo the physical effects of tho habitand they do not appear from brief observation to bo either rapid or serious tho moral effects aro obvious for these must bo the same as those which follow from any form of time drug habit and from thesot at least it Is the religious duty of the trends of the Indian to try to save him Beer Drinkers Bewarel A now terror for beer drinkers has just been discovered It Is not exactly tho peril In tho cup but the peril round

Presented to Prevent the Cue tomof Treating Propositions of Importance Defore the Kentucky General Assembly BY J H STUART Frankfort KySpecialAfter a four days hard struggle tho opponents of tho county unit local option bill won their fight to havo that measure referred to the committee on re ligion and morals on Thursday after noon The fight came up In this way The rules of tho senate provide that when a bill has been printed and read a second time by its title III shall bo referred to an appropriate committee by tho president of the senate unless tho committee to which he refers It shall be changed by a majority of the senate It la understood that Lieutenant Governor Cox who Is president of tho senate Is favorable to the bill and wouM have referred It to some com nlttu that was somewhat favorable to the bill Unfortunately for the bill Governor WllUon bad to go to Washington which made President Cox the actinic governor and made President Pro Tim Linn the acting president of the senate till Governor Wlllson returned It Is understood that Linn is opposed to the county unit bill and If left to him ho would refer It to the tee on religion and morals which uIat present constituted Is opposed the bill and will report It The rules further provide that when I a bill Is reported unfavorably It takes a twothirds vote of the senate to ad vance It to its third reading For that reason the friends of tho bill were opposed to giving Linn an opportun ity to refer the bill and tried to fight off Its reference till Lieutenant Gover nor Cox again became tho presiding officer of tho senateIThe senate about evenly divided If the bill ever came to a direct vote with possibly a slight majority In favor of the moae i ore though there are two or three senators who have voted with the friends of the bill for the past week who will vote against It on final paa sage and the same number who have voted with the opponents of the bill who will vote for the bill on final passage thatIlomoary were reach the point where the bill was I referred on Thursday while tho opponents of the bill say they weo only following n long line of precedents In Insisting that tho bill should go to the religion and morals committee Rourbonithe friends of the a i ate fight to hold the fort till Cox returned and somo rather caustic things wore claimed about the gag rules of the senate that had been I adopted so they said for tho solo purpose of defeating the county unit billJust what the next move of tho friends of local option will bo Is not I known but It Is believed they have a card up their sleeves that will bo I played sometime this week but they aro keeping very quiet about their I plans Somebody started the rumor that politics on the county unit bill had played a part In having Governor Cox go to Cincinnati last Wednesday I thus taking Conn Linn out of the chair for that day but It is stated hero on undoubted authority that It had nothing whatever to do with Coxs trip to Ohio The present legislature Is expected to take some action relative to die posing of the old slate house and thoI square of ground ipon which tho buildings stand but no ono seems to know exactly what will become of I tho historic old structure Tne first suggestion made two years ago was to devote the building to a state his torical museum and placo It In charge of the Stato Historical society and it met with much popular favor at that time as the great majority of tho people want the old building pre served because so many hallowed menIllncelaw school and a bill has been intro ducod In the house looking to that end Senator Burnam of Madison has Introduced a bill authorizing the salo of the buildings and grounds to tho highest bidder provided as much as 175000 can be realized from the sale but this bill has met with a storm of protests from all those who want tho old building preserved Intact There are three buildings on the grounds tho statehouso proper the executive building and the red brick building as the smallest building is called The state house proper Is a ilasslc old structure with big stony tolumns In front and a wonderful self supporting spiral stone stairway It was erected between 1829 and 1832 Itromtheand sawed out by hand Henry Clay John C Brecklnridge John J Crltten den and all of Kentucky great ora tare and statesmen for tho last 80 years havo spoken within Its walls Many historical scenes have tran spired within its high ceilings and It is looked upon with reverence by I nearly everybody In tho state from school children up to the oldest inhabitants I e e I The following are tho titles to some of tho more important bills that have 1 been introduced during the past weekIAct providing that contributory negligence shall not bo a bar to recovery of damages but may serve to reduce tho amount of damage award ed for death or injury Act providing for appointment of four State hank Examiners by the i secretary of state at 3000 a year salary each two of them to bo Dem I ocrats and two Republicans the sal aries to be paid out of the fees charg ed the banks for tho examinations Act providing for an appropriation of 120000 for erection of buildings for a tuberculosis sanatorium and 60000 annually thereafter to main tain 1t- Act fixing tho punishment for burglary at life Imprisonment or tho In fiction of tho death penalty In thu juryItelegraph lino telet rpltho state railroad commission Act granting pensions to ConfaderSato soldiers Act providing that the state treas urer bo authorized to pay Interest on tate warrantCAct to prohibit tho sale of Intoxicat liquor on legal holidays ai it is I ling prohibited on Sunday t appropriating 60000 for new buildings at state university 45000 twoIstatoditional annually to state university for running expenses and 10000 an nually to Eastern Normal school for running expenses S e e Ono of the most unique bills that has ever been presented Is one to prohibit the habit of treating It provides that If any ono shall give or pay for a drink of Intoxicating liquor for another ho shall be fined from 10 to 26 and also provides a fine for the keeper or seller of the 4 liquor so sold or used in treating It Is contended and properly too t Jmoroother one thing and If it could be stopped that more than half of the evils of drinking would soon disap pear It seems very doubtful how ever about the enforcement of such a law for It could bo so easily evad ed If the law should be passed and ono man desired to treat another he could give him tho price of the drink and they could walk Into the saloon together nnd each pay for his drink without any one being the wiser as to whore the money came from e e A strong effort Is being made at Sthis session of the legislature to en act IL law that will give women the right to vote In school elections and the chances now appear to favor the passage ot such a bill It Is pointed out that Kentucky stands nearly nt the bottom ot the states as tar as tho education of Its people Is concerned the per rent of Illiteracy bolng so Great as to really bo shameful Mrs Dosha Brcckln ridge of Lexington Is greatly Inter Dated In the bill and at a public meeting In Frankfort last week at which a number of legislators were present made a most admirable ad dress on tho subject She said that nearly all the progressive states now allow tho women to vote In school elections And predicted that If women were given tho right to vote In Kentucky they would go to work and reduce the per cent of illiteracy to a minimum In a few years The wom ens clubs all over Kentucky aro tak ing an active Interest In urging the passage of tho law And a number of loading legislators are already pledg ed to vote for It Senator Claude I Thomas of Bourbon has Introduced tho bill In the senate and will use every effort to have it become a law e e Kentucky had a Democrat for gov ernor for about five hours last Wed nesday and both branches of the Democratic legislature took a recess of fifteen minutes to go down to the executive office to congratulate the acting governor The law provides that when both the governor and the lieutenant governor are out of the state tho president pro tom of the senate shall become tho acting governor Governor Wlllson was In Washington and Lieutenant Governor Cox was compelled to bo In Cincinnati for s few house on Important business on Wednesday so President Pro Tern Conn Linn of Calloway county became the acting governor While ho was In the executive chair a movement was started to have him I pardon Henry Youtsey the only one of the men Indicted for tho murder I of Governor Goebel who Is serving a term In prison A resolution was prepared to be Introduced In tho house and senate asking tho acting gover nor to pardon Youtsey but some of the friends of Linn urged that It would put him in an embarrassing position to ask him to do something that the Republican governor had not been asked to do so the resolution oall never offered and Youtsey U still to the penitentiary iR
