The American Tuberculosis Exhl bitlon which has Just closed in Louis vllle will be opened in Frankfort on Monday February 3rd where Is hoped to impress upon the legislator and others gathered there from al over the State the needs and possl lilltles of prosecuting the Anti Tuber- culosisr movement in every county of the suite The two weeks stay of this Exhibi lion In Louisville was marked by the greatest interest among Louisville people and every business and social organization in the city cooperated to make It a complete success For two weeks there was a dally atten dance of three thousand people and some of the results have already be Sun to make themselves shown The Louisville Health Department has taken an active hand in the work the Police Department has begun to en force the Antf Spitting OnUnance and the street railway company has an pounced Its intention o disinfecting its cars Other and more far reach Ing effects will surely follow and the Work of the Kentucky Anti Tuberculo sis Association which has already caused a slight reduction in the death date from tuberculosis in Louisville has received such impetus as will guarantee greater progress against this much dreaded disease which kills more people than any other ailment The makeup of the Tuberculosis Exhibition is very interesting in that t It consists of photographs and many models of buildings for the open air treatment of consumption and illus trated lectures are delivered in con neqtion with It every hour during the day It Is being sent to Frankfort by the Kentucky AntiTuberculosis Association and the Lexington Anti Tuberculosis Association which will share the expenses Incurred during its weeks stay In the Capitol There lave already been presented before this session of the Legislature a number of bills providing for steps to be taken against tuberculosis and this 3s no doubt a very opportune time for Inaugurating an educational campaign In the presence of the legislators It It a thing much needed in this State for very few realize that only two statesCalifornia and Tennessee surpass Kentucky in the number of deaths from this disease One out of every seven die from it In Kentucky Leaving Frankfort the Exhibition yflll go to Lexington after which the i Kentucky AntiTuberculosis Associa tion expects to have so thoroughly organized the AntiTuberculosis fight all over the

Legislation is Desired The State Farmers Institute which was to have been held In Frank fort February 4 5 and 6 has been postponed until February 18 19 and 20 This action was made necessary by the failure of the Legislature to get down to business There is con siderable legislation affecting the farming Interests of the State de sired at this session of the General Assembly and as the bills relating to these interests have not as yet been considered by the Committees It was thought best to change the dates until the time is more favorable for securing favorable reports The Institute will be held in the Frankfort Opera House except the evening sessions which will be held in the House of Representatives One fare plus twentyfive cents has been secured on all railroads and a large attendance is anticipated Some of the most prominent speakers in the country will address the InstI- tute ON THE TRAINED NURSES Senators Vote Against Their Bill But Change Their Votes In Time to Save It The members of the State Senate laid their dignity aside at yesterdays session long enough to play a practi cal Joke on the trained nurses who have been here for several days lobby ing for their Examination and Regis tration bill Nearly all of the Senators had committed themselves to tue measure but when it came up on its passage the word was passed around quietly to vote against It Only two or three Senators who were not in on the Joke or who were perhaps afraid to offend the fair lobbyists Voted for It and for a while there was the most crestfallen bevy of girls that ever sat in the Senate Chamber Before the vote could be announced however the solemnfaced Senators arose one by one and changed their votes The bill was carried unanimously GEN S B BUCKNER ILL Gen Simon Bolivar

FIGHT ON OVER COUNTY UNIT BILL There was quite a spirited fight In the House of Representatives on Thursday over the County Unit Bill This strikes out the exemption of first second third and fourth class cities and makes every county In the State a unit in voting on the local option question The bill had been reported from the Committee on Public Morals printed privately and came up for Its second readingA was made to recommit to the Committee on Kentucky Statutes This was opposed by the advocates of the bill who claimed that it was an effort to kill the bill in an un friendly committee After a stiff fight the bill was sent back to the committee who originally reported It Several of those who voted to recommit said they only did so because they thought snap Judgment had been taken to rush the bill through without giving Its opponents a hearing McMU1U AYBIXUEROn the stage of the Capital Theatre last night Mr Lewis McMurray and Miss Bertha Bixler were married by Rev Jos M Severance

of the large R cotton planters In Mississippian on one of his large plantations Sunny Iside he has succeeded In establishing a large colony of Italians who have been largely supplanting the ne- groes In that section of Mississippi The Italians have proved to muchfmore satisfactory for this kind of work than the negro and they were apparently well pleased w thI their empoyment until Mrs Mary brace

compliance with the terms of the Commissioners J letter which Is as follows Sir Referring further to your com fjmunication of November 18 1908 and your recent visit to this office concern Ing the necessity for Increased com pensation for storekeepergaugers em ployed at small distilleries I have the t honor to say that I have this day made litrecommendation to Congress through L ttIdesired f fThe resolution Is to the effect that the Commissioner of Internal Revenue may pay all storekeepergaugers not exceeding U per day when actually employed together with their actual and necessary traveling expenses when goitig to or from their places ottassignmentThis is firmly of the opinion that storekeepergaugers should be better paid and should have some al lowance for traveling expenses Of course this would increase the ex pense of collecting the revenue and It Is necessary to ask for an adldtiorial appropriation to the amount of 100 000 for the ensuing fiscal year pro vided this

in tile latitude of our correspmidei1t that of central Iowa the season la not suf Iclentljrldng tolmature either a crop of sorghum orb cowpeas after the lme when the wheat crop is stacked which would ordinarily be about July 15th In the second place sorghum would not beout until after tae first Tost which would kill the cowpeae Vhere this mixture is practicable it would come very near furnishing a atlon but we do not think it prac balanced ration bUt we do not think It practical In central Iowa and north He further asks If there Is any anger from feeding sorghum hay to attle what kind of a ration it would take in Itself for horses and sheep and whether the succulence of the sorghumvouId necessitate better shedding We have never known of any loss through sorghum disease from feed lug mature sorghum hay to cattle Weave known of cases of impaction such aa occurs when cattle are fed- excessive amount of exceedingly dry matter as when pasturing corn olds While sorghum has considerable succulence it would not in our judgment necessitate any additional ieddlng Sorghum is not a good feed when fed exclusively to breeding ewes but t would not be objectionable for ethers that lare being carried over id as part of the ration it makes an ccellent feed for horses particularly n the winter season when there 1s great muscular waste It has the erlt ot being free from dust In act we do not

first weekly meeting in the Rev Henry Mcllvrays tabernacle at Little Falls to talk about their neighbors It was a breezy session a regular scorcher and 1000 pairs of ears in the towns of Mohawk valley are burn Ing fiercely today Although the women came from the meeting greatly relieved they said they had been told not to say who had been talked about or what scan daIs had been uncovered The Rev Mr Mcllvray was equally rellcent Women will talk about their neigh bors you know explained the Rev Mr Ilvray and I have hit upon the plan to give them an opportunity to talk to their hearts content where it will do no harm Tile meeting was a secret one and its secrets will be kept It was a complete success But the Rev Mr Mcllvrays know ledge of human nature especially of feminine human nature is not exact ly perfect While he professed to know that women must talk about their neighbors he appeared to forget that other old principle about a secret and its keeping So it was learned later that scandal had the first place on the long list of topics fur the gossipers Married men running about with other women and wives doing the same thing with other than their own was one of the principal tops ot gossipy Troubles with choir sin gers school teachers church worshippers and the like came in for a good share of big buzzing The Rav Mr Mcllvray first gained fame hereabouts by acting as

October 15 1909 This expositions be held in a section of the co ry where world fairs are new and for that and many other reasons It is expected to be a success beneficially educationally artistically and financially I Work on the grounds a lldings of the exposition is well er way and the management is determined to have everything in readiness by opening day This has been written about all expositions in late years but the promise has never been com pletely fulfilled The officials of the Alaska Yukpn Paciflc Exposition however have startel put with a completed on opening day Idea above everything else and if they do notI carry out their plan It will not be be cause western energy has not been expended in the task The AiaskaYukonPacifIc Expo sition promises to be different from former worlds fairs in many ways but one policy stands out so far above any of the rest that the entire press qf the country is commenting favor ably upon it No assistance has been t asked from Uncle Sam for carry oa the work That policy must be con ceded as original a All the management desires is for the United States government to par Icipate in the same manner as for sign countries and the different States yfby erecting buildings and installing therein Former expositions have been aided by the government in many ways Outright gifts of large sums of money have been made by Congress to some worlds fairs while Others have negotiated loans from i Uncle Sam some of which were paid pack and some of which were not macSome expositions have received dona and loans As stated before the jJ

Famous Graft Case Decided At Last Supreme Court Interprets Dlsput ed Statute The United States Supreme Court In an opinion rendered by Justice Peckham decided the Graf coloring case which has been in the courts more g years holding that the addition of caramel to distilled spirits Is not a violation of law War wick M Hough the attorney in the case made the following statement of the case f What is known as the Graf case or the caramel coloring case was started in 1902 by the seizure of three packages of double stem iwhlsley on the premises of the A Graf Distilling Company in St Louis on a charge made by the revenue agent that a part of the original contents of the packages had been abstracted and the amounts so abstracted had been supplied by the Introduction of other spirits which were white and that the color was restored by the addition of sugar coloring or prune juice On the trial of vthe case in District Court that court held that proof of the addition of coloring matter was not proof of the addition of other spirits and was not proof which such presumption would follow but the court further held that the addition of caramel coloring vjas a violation of the law because caramel was else within the meaning of that term as used in Section 3455 of the revised statutes of the United States In accordance with that view of the law the District Court held the pack ages forfeited to the Government On appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit the Judg ment of the lower court was reversed on the ground that there was a va riance between the proof and the allegations in the information since the allegations of the information were that the package contained other dis tilled spirits of different spirits whereas the proof went no further than to establish the fact that caramel coloring lad been added after the con tents of the packages were reduced by the addition of water The Government then filed an amended information charging only the addition of caramel The District Court then sustained a demurrer to the information which was filed by the claimant on the ground that caramel was not a taxable article and that Qpngress in enacting section 3455 was only Intending to prohibit the use oVa stamped package for the of shipping and disposing of anything else of the same kind which wan subject tp an internal revenue taxThe Government appealed from this decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the eighth cir cuit which some months after hearing the argument on the appeal certified Wie following questions to the Su preme Court of the United States First Does the sale of a barrel pf distilled spirits stamped branded and marked so as to show that the con tents have been duly inspected and that the tax thereon has been paid into which burnt sugar or caramel has been Introduced after such stump ing branding and markingby an officer of the revenue authorize a seize use and forfeiture thereof to the Uni ter States under the provisions of section 3455 of the revised statutes of the United States- SecondDoes the phrase anything else as employed in section 3455 of the revised statutes include sub stances that are not in themselves taxable under the laws of the United States The Supreme Court of the United State Tuesday answered both of these questions in the negative TRUSTEES OF DEAF AND DUMB ASYLUM

the Confederacy all over the State are confident that the bill before the Legislature providing for a monument to be erected to Kentuckians on the battlefield of Shiloh will be passed Mrs Basil Duke one of the most active workers of the organization Louisville says that the proposed monument would not be of great expense While a similar bill providing for a monument at Shiloh Introduced In the Legislature two years ago failed to pass it is believed the bill before this session will not have a like fateThe movement for the monument to the Kentuckians killed in the battle of Shiloh was started by the local society of the United Daughters of the Con federacy and naturally Its members are more than anxious to see their project successful AN IMPORTANT CHANGE The early spring promises

complaints come to us of worn out land from the east the north and the south There is no richer body of land Jn Ute world than the Red River Valley In north western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota

of the State Grange1 discussed the question in a very interesting mannerS follows The order has been most active in behalf of the Just regulation of taxation recognizing that the farmer Is losing more from our present system and has more to gain from the establishment t of a Just and equitable system of taxation than lias any oth er class of citizens The order in representing the agricultural elms al ways endeavors to be fair and hon orable with all other interests and has the Tight to demand like treatment Inreturn tn n iJYcv ry state- In the Union the cry lids been loud against unjust revenue laws and steps are being taken to remedy the evils ra s Various Stats granges have by their action declared wrong to leg- Islate into the organic laws of a state any provision which shall exempt from taxation property aggregating vast sums In the possesion of the wealthy and often kept by them in visible thus leaving the small hold fags of the masses of people of moderate means to bear the burden of doubled taxation The present constitution of Ken tucky binds us to the general property taxthat Is to the system of levying the same tax upon all classes of property for all purposes There should be an amendment to our con stitution which will allow the legislature to separate the sources of reve nue that is to raise the state reve nue from certain classes tof property leaving other classes of property to be taxed for local purposes only It has been argued by some that this would throw too much power into the hands of the legislature Should such an amendment prevail then would it devolve upon the voters of the state to pay stricter attention to the selection of their representatives than has obtafnedTn the past In both city rid intnty 4tI t 1iIEN6ar c Jt L i iii ret Tl ins t 111

our system Effect on Value ofReai Estate We may mark the secondary effect of this policy iq the valuation of real estate It takes capital and accompanying prosperity to enhance real estate values in a880 theaas sessed real estate valuation was 265085908 or 160 per capita In 189 before our new constitution withthe tax went into effect the yalwatlpn1lncreased to203 per capita In 1900 after eight years ofrjthe iyew tax system il had increased to209an increase of only 6 per capita The total assessed wealth pf the state in 1880 was 21263 per capita oln just bcforp the new constitution It had increased to 27680 Krom 1890 to 190G with 14 years under the new tax system t in creased only tp293 per capitartan increase of less than 18 per capita In 16 years Under our old constitution with all its imperfections there was some latl tude given to localities in the encouragement of industries The new constitution adop ed in 1891 abolished most of this but did allow municipali ties to give fiVe n to new manufacturing concerns The act putting this clause of the constitution into effect was not passed until 1898 The decade then from 1880 to 1890 illustrates the progress possible under the old liberal system the decade from 1890 to 1900 illustrates the result of the narrow policy of the new constitution before partial exemption became effective and the years since 1900 well show the result the liboral policy of encouragement Mark then the result From 4880 to 1890 under a policy of encouragement the capital employed In manufacturing Ken tucky Increased 742 r t From 1890 to 1900 with aH
