their labor 1 ji is apparent in the way the bill wen through the Senate Kentucky has two normal schools one t at lUohmond and the other at Bowling Green and the State hast fippropriated 300000 for

pre eneral Assembly has been des f by Representative Porter las belrl without parallel for office creating anti salary increasing In the Senate bills carrying large appro priations go through without any delay and the curious situation exists of the House being the conservative body The House refuses to pass bills which the Senate accepts with out question An Instance of this was the big appropriation bill as it is called the bill allowing half a million dollars to State College and the two normal schools The House took three days to pass this bill and many speeches were made on it but the Senate took the bill at one swallow and put it through in a hurry The Senate has passed the capitol appro priation bills but the House has not taken action on them yet although it is believed that they will pass in the House without any trouble The present week has been a busy Qrfo with the Legislators and they have been passing bills at a great rate but in the main they are bills of local interest or of small importance The small bills were sent out first by the Rules committee in order to clear the decks for action on the more im portant measures and It was expected that the bills would go through In a hurry and without much debate This expectation was not realized in the House where there has been a scrap over nearly every bill proposed The House has objected to the bills and the members have been expressing them selves rather freely on the subject They have refused to pass several bills which it was thought would go through in a hurry and have wrangled over others that it was thought could be disposed of in a few minutes For instance on Tuesday the House spent an hour and a half wrangling lover a bill prohibiting the sale of horses and mules known as bulls or chokers This bill was amended un til the author of the bill Duncan Millikin hardly recognized it as his own Many of the members speeches and it was as hold a fight as though it was the county unit bill Then the next bill up to change the statutes regarding shooting at random on the public highway also caused a long wrangle and took up more than an hour when it should have been disposed of in ten minutes the only purpose being to define shooting on the public highway so that a conviction could be obtained whether ot not the person shooting was firing at random or at some object By a unanimous vote the Senate this week passed the new Board of Control of Charitable Institutions bill providing for four members to be appointed by the Governor The bill provides that the present members of the board shall not be removed but shall serve out their terms and the Governor shall appoint one Republican as an additional member of the board Stanley Milward of Lexington is tipped for the place and may get It as he has strong backing The Republican and Democratic Senators all voted for the bill and it is believed that it will meet the same reception- in the House The Senate also passed a bill of fered by Dr O Po Hogan allowing inmates of the Confederate Home at Pewee Valley or veterans who are eligible to admission to the home to stay in their own homes and receive the 175 per capita which is allowed by the State for those who are in mates of the home This will allow aged Confederate veterans to remain with their families and friends and yet draw the small pension which is allowed The bill

entertained and honored by the Young Mens Democratic Club of Franklin county and it is impossible to fully express my appreciation of it For many years I have been a constant resident here and these young men are like my home people to me The greatest honor a man can have is the respect and confidence of the people among whom he has lived Day after day they seo him they meet him in his home upon the streets his office if he has faults they find them out and if he has virtues they usually know them For over eight years I have been with the people of our Capital city and county and it gratifies me beyond measure to know that they respect and cherish me in an hour that may seem to some as a time of political gloom Their friendship and love are far dearer to me than any office within the gift of the people They have seen me in times of chaotic strife and poll tical turmoil when even my life was unsafe upon the streets of the city and now that it is all over and my public service is at an end I can see in their kindly glances and feel from their warm hearts that they still trust me It Is honor enough for me and I would not exchange it for a senator ship or for any high office in the land With deep gratitude therefore I thank those young Democrats and the citizens here for their bountiful mani festation of their regard and esteem And to you members of the Gen oral Assembly who have supported me so loyally as the party nominee for Senator In the recent contest am equally grateful and am sure that your constituents heartily endorse your coursetVictory is not always the true test of an honest and rightous cause Suc cess may have its pleasures but fail ure may have its honor Democracy may not have triumphed this time but its principles are right and in the end shall prevail Surrounded upon this occasion by those gallant friends faltered not when the fight was hottest and who yielded only when overcome by superior numbers I wish to speak words of cheer and not of de a defeated candidate I am not a disappointed nor an unhappy man I made the cleanest and best fight I could but It was against over inspired with the hope of victory From a Democratic primary held

ithe Senate which lasted until nearly four oclock yesterday afternoon during which time several strong speeches were made on both sides of the question the Me Chord tobacco bill putting the tobaccompanies under the police power the State was defeated In its stead the Senate passed the Burnam antitrust bill offered by Judge Av R Burnam of Madison county anti i this bill will go to the House tomor row for Its first reading It may be passed athough it is understood that the tobacco growers representa tines who are here that they do not want the substitutefiThe McChord bill has been tho most discussed measure which was pending in the Legislature at this session and among the farmers of the State it was regarded as the most important law which was proposed bill was offered by Representa IThe C McChord of Springfield with strong opposition from the first The tobacco growers ofl Western Kentucky were not especially interested In the bill and dia not care Whether it was passed or not but the Burley growers were very anxious to have it become a law They have had a strong lobby here for some time and during the past few days some twenty or thirty mem bers of the district board of the Burley Tobacco Society have been in Franfort working to get the Mc Chord bill passed The bill passed the House several weeks ago after r long delay and much debate AC that time the Senatorial race was t1on and it is claimed the bill was used by the Beckham men to block business in the House and prevent the contest cases from being report edIn the Senate today the Rules Com mittee called for the bill which had been given its second reading and was ready for passage The support ters of the bill for some reason were not ready to have the bill come to a vote today and wanted a postponement of its consideration but tha Senate decided that the bill should be taken up at once The first move was made by Senator Jack Chinn who led the fight for the tobacco men He moved that the Senate go into committee of the whole to hear Mr McChord explain Ha bill Mr McChord went before the Senate ta committee and explained his bill as he had dqne in the House He urged that if the bill was not passed there would be a continuation of the lawless ness in Kentucky Senator Burnam offered as a substitute for the McChord bill his antitrust bill and explained it tat some length The bill which he had drawn is very drastic and under its provis ions as Senator Burnam explained if a trust is formed and violates the law it can be fined a sum which would make even Judge Landis cole brated fine of the Standard till Co seem small He also explained that the bill would not repeal the law al lowing the tobacco growers pfi tine State to pool their crops and it was brought out that the Judges of the- o Court of Appeals had been sounded on the subject and would uphold the proposed law Senator Chinn spoke in favor of the McChord bill urging that some thing must be done to help the farm era and tobacco growers of the State Ho said he was in favor oC SenatorsBurnams antitrust bill but believed it midi the McChord bill both should pass end not that the McOhord bill should be killed Senator Donaldson Continued on page 4 === HARGIS ftRANTED A CONTINUANCE Ilti iJ pN ACCOUNT OF ILLNESS OF HIS t J ATTORNEYS NO APPLICATION MADE FOR 8AILi ft After repeated and persistent efforts

for their Individual study and benefit The wprk is in ithe hands of the Departmentof Agricul ture This department sendsopt warn ing bulletins at various times in the year and It is presumed that warning will be sent to the fruit growers of the West and North Already the trees are budding and flowers blooming One big fruit grow er said that scores of his trees have buds on them but as he has them well protected he Is not very apprehensive- It is the careless fruit grower who will suffer said the veteran The grower who will lake an interest and watch his trees especially in the climate where we expect changeable weather at all seasons of the year will not suffer much from a freeze Of course he will suffer some loss it matters not how careful he may be but if he will he can protect himself against severe loss In the South things are different for the weather there is expected to be on its good behavior all of the time When there is a decided change the fruit dealers especially y

rehearing STATE ASYLUMS UNDER BIPARTISAN BOARD BURNHAM BILL TO DIVORCE IN STITUTIONS FROM POLITICS PASSES STATE SENATE The first step taken in Kentucky to divorce the State Institutions from pol itics came when the Senate passed the Burnam Bill Wednesday providing for a bipartisan board of four mem bers to have charge of the three in sane asylums and Institute for the Feebleminded Under the operations of the bill Gov Willson will appoint a Republican member on the pcsent State Board of Control of Charitable Institutions which will make it stand politically two Democrats and twb Republicans The new appointees term will expire in 1911 which will make a term of one of the members expire every year The present members of the board and the years their terms will expire are M H Board Democrat 1909 Percy Haly Democrat 1910 Col Albert Scott Republican 1912Senator Burnam the author of the bill also introduced a measure plac J1gthe management of the State prisons under bipartisan control but was obliged to content himself with getting one of the measures through Even Democratic Senators declared that they welcomed a nonpartisan con duct of the State eleemosynary Instl Unions and believed that it was an ex cellent measure It was pointed out that the best results could only be secured in their management where the officials are absolutely free from the contaminating influence of party politics and the employes not made subsurvent to political bosses The experiment will be watched with great Interest by the people of theState and If successful there is hardly a question butthat the other State in stltutlons will be placed under similar management RECORD For Faat diverBtiliR E Lee Itt is not generally known that In the fastest time ever made

Cairo 250 miles Measured miles as furnshed by the United Sttaes Engineer Corps at Vicksburg New Orleans to Natchez 257 miles Memphis to Cairo 230 miles showing the distance to Natchez was twenty seven miles more than from Memphis to Cairo While the distance was twentyseven miles greater to Natchez the current was not strong as from Memphis to Cairo The latter run was made on a regular business trip when the Lee was making twoweek trips from New Orleans to Louisville but she never made a stop on the run On the run to Natches she was stripped for the race and it was when she and the Natchez were

connected with tp liquor business What was the exact consideration given for their perfidy I am unable to State I dismiss them with contempt to the tender mercies of their constituents and to the scorn of all honest men I would only suggest that the timid three were no less treacherous and dishonorable than the bolder four who voted for the Republican candi date Their conduct which they careful ly concealed until the Legislature met was not much an injury to me as it was a crime against representative government If the people cannot re ly upon the promises and pledges made by their Representatives and Senators it is natural that they should lose some confidence In a Republican form of government- To those of you acquainted with the personal and business character ictics of these seven notable patriots It Is hardly necessary to say that their conduct was not Influenced by any question of the fairness of the primary in which the nomination for Senator was made by any delicate scruple as to the fitness of the candidate lected or by any Inordinate devdUbn to the conscientious discharge of their public duties They are all alike Whether dressed in white vrona behind the bar of

the triumph of the principles of that party is essential to the wellbeng and endurance of the Republic with no political ambition to bias my Judgment with a heart full of patriotic love for my State and country my only appeal to the Demo crate of Kentucky is that they shall rally and organize for a victorous campaign under the banner of trusted leaders and not under the false colors pf those who would lead them bound hand and foot into the camp of the enemyIf Is worth aught if the lessons of the past hqve taught us anything we should know it Is almost essential to he partys success that we

the State to McKinley In 1896 and 1897 it fought the Democratic nominee for the United States Senate and encouraged the bolters to send a Republican to SenateWe much talk and clamor about d reorganization of the party It is all right to reorganze It and no one objects but the Democrats of the State should see that the reorganiza tion is done by the friends and not by the enemies of the party The present organization in the State was selected by the Democratic masses except in the cities of Louis ville Covlngton Newport Lexington and Paducah where the committeemen have been appointed by the State Central Committeeman and from each one of those cities expept Newport a bolter was here to violate his pledge to the party If deorganization is needed it seems to any fairminded man that the great est need for It is in those cities whose organization have turned them over to the Republicans and bolters The local organliatlonln the city of Louisville by its selfish and In defensible conduct Has done more than all other causes combined to drive people out of the party there and to lose the city by a large ma jortty to the Republicans There is indeed need or reorgant- z Uo 1 there and the Democratic con vejitlbn should see to it that men at high character are placed in charge of that organization that fairness and honesty may again prevail in the party management and Louisville restored to her proper position as a Democratic city To a sweet and devoted family I can now ratire a happy man with no taint upon the name I bear and with the vigor and strength of young man hood

ENACTED BY LAST LEQISLA TURE A case affecting land forfeitures un der the revenue and taxation law en acted at the last session of the Legis lature and of intense interest throughout the State

Union Company against the Common wealth involving the constitutionality of Article 3 of the revenue law passed in 1906 The action originated in Leslie county where the Commonwealths Attorney Instituted suit for forfeiture to the Commonwealth of 40000 acres of land belonging to the Kentucky Union Company The suit was brought under the 1906 revenue law and a Judgment of forfeiture was entered in the Leslie Circuit Court which was appealed to the court of Appeals here i The Court of Appeals hadtbefore it a similar case the Eastern Kentucky Coal Lands Corporation against the Commonwealth which was decided aaginst the corporation last December though no judgment of forfeiture was entered Since then the Pike Circuit Court has adjudged a million acres of the Eastern Kentucky Coal Lands Corporation forfeited to the Common wealth The Kentucky Union caso is the first action to reach the highest court where a Judgment of forfeiture is involved and is in shape to go to the United States Supreme Court for final adjudication if the statute is upheld by the Court of Appeals as cop stltutlonal The question involves the title to nearly all of the mountain lands and is very

girls in a boarding flcbcol is placed under the ban and is punishable by a fine of from to 50 under a bill which was introduced in Ithe House by Representative J Hal Woodford The bill is modeled along the lines of the bill which was passed by the Tennessee Legislature several years ago and ia very drastic It 4rakes it unlawful for any person to Pass notes to a school girl while she thehother girls under the charge of a teach er It also forbids men from loiter Ing about the school and annoying the pupils or the teachers The usual tac tics of a college boy who is enamoredr of some prettyfaced girl in a board school but who Is not allowed to see her are accurately described in the- bill and all of this is placed under the ban of the law making it punishable J Mr Woodford said that the purpose of the bill was to protect the board ing schools from annoyance and to rrt give the principal and the teachers au thority to stop the practice of passin- notes and flirting with the boarders in a girls school He said It was es peclally for the protection of Millers burg Institute at Mllerspurg but Its provisions applYjto every county ands city In the State and if the bill should become a law It would be hard on the boys who are attending school in the same towns where girls schools are conducted GONE TO EUROPE r Mr and Mrs J N Camden Jrof Woodford county left Thursday for a 1trip to Europe They will go first to Boston for their daughter Miss TevIs andj from there to New York from Whence they will sail for Naples spending Easter in Rome Mr Cam don does not expect to remain abroad
