degree of satisfac tOll at the results achieved especially hiview of the fact that the widening k ol the scope and the strengthening of the n of the Department IfSfins beenbrought about under adverse eiroumstances While there Is every evidence of confidence in this Depart rment on the part of the Jarmersand I the citizens ihe State arid while there has tiQena generous coopera lon on the part of the people gen eraily speaking there is a condition t existing In the State at present that vChas affected the progress of the work toa certain degree This condition 4jsnot due to any antagonism on the rtof any organization or Individ i iCuals but is duo solely toa mlsconcep Jjion of the object and purposes of this Department by some of the farmers During the past four years a de termined effort has been put forth by the Department to show the advantages to be desired from the intelli gent organization of tho farmers for their common good arid this Depart 1meat is in hearty sympathy with all organizations whose object is to ad K Vance the general welfare of the farmers of the State so long as they heel within the confines of the 1aw- oIsome few persons in the various counties of the State however entertained the erroneous idea that the objects thefarmersJgardless of the demand and ot exist ing conditions But I am pleased to report that this Idea is rapidly being disslpated and that the members of ftho co associations are begin nlngifo understand that the real ob l ftiect8 of the Department are to iri struct the farmers along the lines of growing mdVe pounds and more bush thecostpockets of the farmers more returns for the capital invested myIhoffice we were handicapped to a de greet not much by the scope of the work outlined in the Jaw as by the limited funds placed at our dis posal The Department had an ap iyprbpriation of only 13000 and out of this amount the salaries of the Commissioner the Assistant Commis sioner the Labor Inspector and the Assistant Labor Inspector were paid aptDuring these two years however I am pleased to report the work of the Department was conducted in such manner as to inspire the confidence of tie General ASsembly with the re ituit that an additional appropriation ntt of aO000 was allowed and additional i retipulsslbflities were placed on the D jpaitBient by the creaUon of a State d t Board of Agriculture Fpren Immigration of which tho stoner was made oxofficio Cha an From the day I assumed the re sponsibilit this Important branch of t e Slj nment it became any ambjtiojfl Athe support of the 1arme ounty in the State ittthe the Department to the end tffl ccessful and permanent institute societies might be organized in each countyl am pleased to report that an organization has been formed in every county in tho Stat and for two successive years a i days institute has been held ii of the 119 counties This wo already brought about a change in the agricultural condl of the State It is freely admitted by intelligent farmers Jn all parts of the State that the farmers generally are more interested in scientific investigation and modern methods of ag riculture than at any time in the history xf the State These organ zations Were effected only after us tiring work on the part pf every members of the jDepartne and I iim ri that If this worlc is co tinuedin an intelligentmannet tHeg0bd results will be incalculable illh future Kentucky should be second to np State in the Union agriculturally midI with the hearty operation on the part of the farmers and a comprehensive and determined poke on the part of the State De partment of Agriculture Kentucky Is destined to eventually take front rank- among2tlte States of the Durin the first two years of ad ministration asmany instItutes were held as the appropriation would admit of aid in addition the alfalfa and corn special train covered a large territory After the passage of the law cr the State Board of AgricultureForestry and Inimigra tlon the Department set about to carry the provisions of thenew law Into effect The first important step was to locate the State Fair At the first meet Ing of the board in Frankfort the fair was located Vit Louisville Since then two sucesaffti State lair S been held in that fHy Tn two faira yielded pt nT of about 18om Pert known as the Duffy trfjtt In the Western end of the city of Louisville was recently selected as the permanent homeof the fair A detailed statement of the two fairs held under the State Board will be found elsewhere The board next considered the provision of the iaw relating to forestry- An agreement was secured with the National Forest Service whereby that department isto pay onehalf the expenses of a forest survey of Kentucky and the State Board the other half At the present time eleven counties have been surveyed A complete report with a comprehensive map at tached Is given elsewhere in this volume After giving considerable thought to the question of immigration the Committee on Immigration appointed by the State Board came to the con elusion that it would be futile to send an agent to any of the ports of entry inthe United States as nearly all the foreigners emigrating to this country have fixed upon their destination before leaving their homes The committee therefore decided to son4 Mr iChas G Mutzenberg of Frankfort to Switzerland as the special agent of this State to induce emigration to Kentucky Mr Mutzeri berg was a f resident of Switzerland for twenty years and he proceeded at once to the work of appointing Bub agents and to the carrying out of the general instruction of the board He had not proceededtar in his work when he was notified that accent law required agents to be pfomanently domiciled in Switzerland Mr Mut zenberg was compelled tg cancel his newspaper advertising and his mission was Tendered practically ineffective Mr Mutzenbergs report is presented inthlsvolumeI I had the honor to be appointed a member of the Kent lckY1amestown Exposition Commission and this Department at the request of the Com mission secured anti maintainedan agricultural exhibit during the life of the Exposition The Institute work during the past two years has been very successful and the interest Jn tills work is creasing rapidly The State Insti tute was well attended and the Interest was all that could be desired As a result of the State and County Insti tutes many good lecturers are being developed throughout the State and in a few years the Commissioner will bo enabled to secure hi entire force t rogress Enendatloru trtlI fe

soils and the Nature of the crops grown has come a demand not only for a closer relationship there is a growing demand for a sub station in Eastern Kentucky and one in the western part of the State The soil of Kentucky Is so diversified that this step becomes almost imperative While the Lexington Station has under the able direction of Director 1I4 Scovell been carrying oni a series of experiments in varlous parts of the State for many years the is sults are not as satisfactory as they would be if two substations werp created I am of the opinion how ever that these stations should be under the supervision of the dIrec torit Lexington Director Scovell jO YP1llIHOJlorable Body that you create these twos stations lnprasfc In Appropriation for Fores try Purposes In view of the fact that this Depart ment is in conjunction with the Na tional Forest Service now conducting the first forest survey ever under taken in the State and in view of the crying need for practical results along the lines of forest conservation I am convinced that the State Bowel- of Agriculture Forestry and Immigfa thin should be given the power to ap point a State Forester A competent forester could look after the States interests while the present survey Is in progress in addition to the many urgent duties now requiring the atten tion of a practical forester In order that the board may be enabled to car ry on this Important worm Intelligent ly and along practical lines I hefeby recommend that the sum of 10000 be appropriated annually for forestry purposes This appropriation should be in lieu of the 2000 now appropriated but it should nbt come out pf the gen oral appropriation now allowed the board State Aid for Roads mrtment I have made it a point to send road experts into Various coun ties to lecture on the important ques tion of road construction and maintenance The lecturers were also structed to enlist the cooperation of the fiscal courts In the movement for hotter roads In many counties the work has brought practical results When it is considered that the National Government expends millions of dollars annually on her waterways It is singular that so little has been accomplished the allImportant mat ter of road building While it may be many years before we can hope for national aid I am of the opinion that the time is opportune for the enact ment of a law whereby the State counties and towns pay a Just proper tion of the expense of building and improving themain toads of the State Elsewhere In this report will be found a complete statement of the tiition of roads number of miles how operated etc Expense of Printing Reports c Should Come Out of Gen oral Fund- I respectfully recommend that the law regulating this Department be so amended as to allow the expenses for the printing of all reports to be charged to the General Fund General Summary- At the close of my terns of oflico I feel aj pardonable pride inthe fact that I have given the Department my best energies I have worked un ceasingly for the improvement of Ute J f i curtejy tcndc es subord the he partme jspectfuljy r H BERT VREELAND Commissioner CATLING GUN Returned To State Arsenal From Lexington Yesterday The gajtlihg gun that wassent to Lexington from the State Arsenal several weeks ago andplied on South Broadway in charge of squad of militia where reports prevailed that Night Riders were contemplating a raid on the tobacco warehouses was returned here Frida ymorning Its further use being deemd unnecessary When the gun was sent to Lexing ton the tobacco war excitement was at Its height the raids and destruc tion by the Night Riders In Southwestern Kentucky having stirred up great feeling all over the State and especially in tlte Dark and Burley tobacco districts Reports were circulated in Lexing ton thata raid would be made on Lexington and that the tour South Broadway tobacco warehouses and the lug American Tobacce Goinpanys plant be btrrneThis Informa ion was given to Silas Shelburne one of the warehousemen by a prominent Equity Society man of Fayette county A dispatch to an outoftown paper states that the gun will be sent to the Dark District but this apears to be only surmise The gun was no longer needed at Lexington and It was aim ply sent back to the custody of Capt Woodyard who is now keepr of the State Arsenal psNO SUNDAY BALL PLAYING One of the tills yet to come before the House of Representatives is In tended to abolish ball playing in hay part of the Commonwealth or taking part in any contest on Sunday and provides a penalty of from 525 to 50 against any person convicted of play Ing In a game on Sunday and a flqe of 50 to UOO to any person renting or leasing grounds for Sunday baseball playing The prohibited games are designated

done by the Gen oral Assembly these days and it isl seldom that anything occurs to relieve the monotony of the sessions At yesterdays session of the House Rep resentative Guathmey introduced a resolution calling for a commiteeI to investigate the State Treasury This was adopted with an amendment by Mr Wilson providing that three timbers vf the committee shall be Democrats and two Republicans The Senate passed the McNutt electrocution bill by a vole of 28 to 4 Both Houses adjourned over until Monday Plugging along in the same old monotonous way whichhas prevailed during the session the Legislature is still taking ballots for United States Senator and no one has been elected The two houses meet every day at noon and take ballots and that is all there is to it No one shows any especial interest for no one has any Idea that there will be an election the only thing of Interest being the question of whether or not some one will change his vote The members themselves show no interest and there is a general sentiment in favor of the selection ofa new candidate who can to his support the solid- Democratic strength Every day this week the Legisla ture has met in Joint session and taken a ballot and it has been the same every day except that on Thursday no quorum was present Nobody was elected and it looked Jlke nobody would be elected but now things are changing and it begins to look like the end is In sight There seems to be a general sentiment in favor of the election of a Senator so that legislation will not be blocked any longer and some desirable bills can be put xthough What this will result in is a question that many persons are trying to answer but it is generally thought now that a Sena tor will be electedI Supporters of Bradley are Jubilant over the way things appear and say that he will undoubtedly be elected It is certain that the Republicans feel much more confident than they have ever felt and they actually believe that they will elect Bradley whether from basis of fact or not Is a ques tion On the other hand the follow ers of BeQkham concede that he can not be elected at the present session and saytiiat he will have to win at the next session If no election results this time But many of those who have been voting for hhh feel that he should allow a Democrat to be elected and the plan sugested la for him to withdraw and allow a cau cus to be held on the oldfashioned plan The nominee of this caucus would be elected by tho 73 Democrat This plan is being discussed with Itftf r renewed interest now and Is taking some definite form but it all depends on what Mr Beckham will do and It is said by his closest friends that he will not give up or get off the track They say that he is the nominee of the Democratic party and cannot surrender that which was given him by the votes of two hundred thousand Democrats They say th felr Beck ham will submit to the people the question of whether or not he shall 7 go to the Senate and the people will t r speak If the election does not come off and the Legre adjourns without a Senator b Vchosen Mr Beck 4 ham will go before the people on theytemperance issue and will claim that he is the victim of the whisky trustr He will say to them that he tried to get the whisky interests out of the State and out of politics but failed d and now he wants the people to stand by him and help him put the whisky tinterests down With this as his fcampaign cry he hopes to win 1 DuVliig the last week the county unltbI11 extending the county unit ilaw so as to make it applicable tot r

to be at present but lit f tie chance of it becoming a law With the county unit question play 11 ing so prominent a part there is no telling what will happen in the Sena ttorial race Many Democrats are opposed to the law and the Republlt lcans are lining up solely against it so that there seems to be a chance 1lthat through this bill the Republicans can elect their man to the Senate 1fJv Some of those voting for Mr Beck tllnwIi they elect Beckham and the anti Beckham people say If it passes they will defeat Beckham This presents if an interesting situation that is full of If fl possibilities for the men opposed to the county unit bill may go stamped t ing off to Bradley at any time and elect him if he can hold his men in f line as it now seems that he can The time for the election of a

our cemetery WOULD MEAN MUCH TO THI SECTION OF THE COUNTRY The chances appears to be favorable for the establishment of a naval reserve station In Louisville The Commercial Club has taken the mat ter up and a committee composed of Cary Tabb John D Wakefield ah Edgar Ezell has been appointed to push the project The Commercial Club has already received much en couragement from the proper author ities at WashingtonIBefore a naval station can be tablished it is necessary to get the consent of the State Government The Adjutant General must glue his consent but after this is secbre- he must be given the authority to act and a bill will be introduced at this session of the Legislature giving him the proper authority Gunboat for Training Recruits The establishment of a naval re serve station in Louisville will mean much to that city as it will serve to assist in making it a Federal center With a station there a gunboat woul be assigned to service on the Ohl river for the benefit and training o recruits and the reserve forces Recruits from the naval recruiting stations within a radius of 200 miles or more would be sent there for their training and many visitors would be attracted to Louisville as a result The naval reserve station If esta linked at Louisville would be an adjunct to the National Guard So that the officials of the State Guards may cooperate with the committee from the Commercial Club and others Interested in the project a conference wl be held with Col W B Haldeman The committee will ask Col Hald man to lend his aid and Influence in securing the station for Louisville as the committee believes that such an establishment would be of great benefit to the city Big Annual Appropriation- The Federal Government makes an annual appropriation of 60000 for the support of the naval stations There are a number of them in the States but only a few of them are located in inland cities Capt Wallace W Morris was the first one to suggest to the officers the Commercial Club that a naval reserve station could be secured for Louisville if the proper effort was p forth The suggestion was acted upon at once and advices received from Washington indicate that there is no doubt but that a station will be established there If the proper authorities act COBURN ON THE HOG It was well said by a former cabinet hong we have an automatic combined machine for

decidedly calls to mind a former job of Mr Coyles which I reproduced I do not know how long ago I am positive that I would know that for Mr Coyles work among hundreds of samples so much does his individual ity present Itself even on a job 14 one series There is something about the space between the two solid parts of the letterhead which is Coyllshly coy possesses an individual elusiveness as ft were Physlognomlnsts say Chat a great width between the eyes de notes generosity This letterhead has the earmarks of generosity in this- respectforgive the mixed metaphor ever notice how bouses and

wUth a rule I have looked at great many letter heads but at first had an Idea that it possessed somewhat more width las well as length than the ordinary letterhead Now us Mr Coyle has been away from us so long and as he seat me a bunch of matter which he bas prepared for other people I feel con strained to give him a little space This letterhead R Rogers Sons is as handsome as some of the other ones which he has In this script and similar letter I give it however as a sample of something that seems to me a little bit different and I really have no fault to find with it after all This kind of criticism Is possibly a little out of style detectlvely in man ner of Its moat didatetio moods I do think Mr Coyle is as miserable a sinner as he tries to make out If all backsliders who came back to the fold would do so bearing such offer ings this would be a pretty good who at down each day and struck discords on some instrument or continually sang out of key In a case now under discussion

life until he learns to speak correctly If the woman be loves Will consent to be ids wife This shows an admirable courage and won h wihllo character A woman could hardly refuse to give such a man her

rues ol the expressions they employ- It ought to bo a part of every mothers duty and pleasure to urge iher children to the use of good language If she has been deprived of education she should ask Over children to correct her gently when they learn how to apply the rules of grammar to conversation and thus the home life would supplement the school An hpur given eacto evening at home to

ingenious effort was made by the Spanish Government operating through domestic and foreign in triguers to separate Kentucky fron- the Union alike by appeals to popular passion and to commercial interests An unholy nuance was attempted with a view as alleged to securing for Kentucky and the southwest the free navf gallon of the Mississippi rlver TCie negotiations predicated upon this so called alliance made no little head TMay under the auspices of His Ex cellency the Baron of Carondelet the Spanish Governor of West Florida and pf Louisiana in 1797 They likewise found in Judge Sebastian of Louisville amember of our Court of Appeals a willing listener if not a ready participant in the glittering project of the Spanish King but it Is sufficient here to say that the timely exposure of the intrigue awakened 1n dUgnatlon throughout Kentucky stub jetted Its ctntrlvors to public cxecra lore deepened the patriotism of the Infant commonwealth and strength ened the ties that

Taylor In the war for the Union the Ken tucldans on both sides of the struggle were notably famous The State was at first reluctant to engage in the fratlddal conflict not from lack oi fidelity to convictions and to duty but because our people pere impelled by a supreme desire to stay the tide of popular pasion and if possible avent a strife which finally swept mil lions of true men into its
