THE CLAY 1 CITY TIMES. 31.00 a Year.ln Advance. Wi are here to help Clay , the Sorroonling Coantry anj Ourselves. .1. B. Burgher, Publisher. VOL. XIX. Let us Have the Proof. The Clay City Times without taking the trouble to investigate the real facts or make an effort to ascertain' the truth of the matter, again charges that Repre&enta-tivo.Guvoted against the two-cerate bill. Our esteemed con temporary also says in substance .that the Irvine Sun helped elect Mr. Gum, a railroad representa tivo. We are not concerned as to wha.t the Times says about us, but in defense of Mr. Gum, wewish to state that if the editor of the Times, had read the March 20th issue of the Sun and Eetill Tribune, both of which are sent to him regularly, he would have noticed that both papers carried an editorial statiug that Mr. Gum had voted for the bill. Mr. Gum voted for the bill as long as it was before the House, and then voted for 2 bill, which carried. The clerk calling the roll failed to hear Mr. Gum answer, and next day the press reports failed to show our representative as voting on the question either way. Mr. Gum can prove by members who sat near him that he did vote for the bill. Irvine Sun. The Times stated in its issues of March 12 and 10 that our Representative Gum voted tagaiust the 2 cent bill. The Sun seems to think we should have investigated the facts before we pub lished this, .statement, and .fur- m CLAY CITY. K,f., THUKSDAY First Report. The first report of the Depart, ment of Public Roads has reach ed this office. It shows the work done in each county, together with the number of miles of earth, gravel and macadam roads. It also gives the names of the Road Engineers for each county where they have such officers. Ten counties have no engineers, Powell being one of the number. This report gives the assessed value of each county, and the road funds expended, together with the area- of land in square miles. It contains other valua ble information of which the writer is greatly interested. It shows Powell, as wa all know, to have no macadam roads, and but 150 miles of earth roads. And we can add these are very poorly cared for, but we are going to do better, beginning this year. - APIilL 2. J9M. NO.

Mr. Morgan Lyle made a business trip to Clay City this week. Miss Tina Derickson, of Indian Fields, is visiting her brother out on the mountain. Prof. Buck is able to read and write now, and will soon be able to leave the hospital. Tuesday was Carl Welch's birthday aud nearly everybody in Stanton went to Rosslyu to help him celebrate it. The writer made a trip up iu Breathitt county where he preached and looked after his Sunday School work. Mr. - g fendant. A Conundrum. c Reed-flos- s. Miss Louise Hervey Reed and Mr. Charles D'll Moss, of Somer- ' rtherd6ertheanVK'hft"the . press reports failed to show Mr. Gum as votiug either wiy. The vote in the House was taken March 0. The Courier Journal, Kentucky's leading daily, on March 10 published the yea and ' nay vote op this measure, and Mr. Gum is in the nay vote. For the convenience of our friend, the Sun, who uppears to have not seen this report, we will say he will find it, as stated above, xf March in the Courier-Journu- l 10, and on the first page, the fifth column, and Mr. Gum's name is 18 inches from the top of the column with all others votiug against the 2 cent bill. Though the vote was. taken March 1), the Sun seems to think that the Times should have waited until after its issue of March 20 when Mr. Gum denied his vote, to investigate the matter. said, the The Courier-Journa- l day after the vote, was taken, that Mr. Gum voted against the 2 cent bill, and his vote was so counted. Mr. Gum says eleven days after the' vote was taken, and even after the Legislature had adjourned, that he voted lor the 2 cent bill. Now whom shall we believe? The vote on the 2 cent bill did not show Mr. Gum voting either way, and he may have voted for the 2 cent bill. The 2j cent bill was not opposed by the L. & N. railroad, as this road had been virtually forced to these rates by the laws of states not controlled by the road. The records, without doubt, will show that Mr. Gum voted the 2 cent bill, but if he can prove, its he says he can, that he did vote for the 2 cent bill, wo will, without! charge to him, publish such proof. Wo desire to treat Mr. Gum fajrly, and if published the Courier-Journa- l his vote wrong, he should have it corrected through that medium, but until this is done, there will be very serious doubts tho way Mr. Gum voted oh tlihWory important bill. set, were married Wednesday, March 25 at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Stanley Reed, at Cynthiana.

According to these figures the insurance carried on the insurable property is about double its assessed value, a,nd, much of the insurable property is not insured at all. There is a wrong somewhere, and we believe it is both ways. We suggest that all property be assessed at the amount it is insured forvand insured for the amount it is assessed at. If this could be done wo think that both the fire insurance and the tax problems wo.uld be. solved.
