WtlA Leewnfteracalling- the meting to order made the follow ing statement When this committee last met It was thought that there would be no need of a primary as there would be only one candidate Since that time Mr Campbell Can trill has announced his candidacy and In a card to the public criticises the action of this committee He declares that the action of the committee was unfair that the time Is too short the expense too great etc When I saw that card I felt it my duty to call this committee together to consider the matter of selecting a nominee fort Congress In this new light At the time of your former action I thought that the date of May 12 left Insuffi cient time for a canvass but It was not expected that the incumbent would have opposition f The roll was then called and showed the following members present W A Lee Owenton chairman C H Morris Oldham John Griffin Frank lln F M Thomasson Scott Dr W P Roberts Fayette M Kaufman city of Lexington by proxy J H Cunningham Owen Ambrose Dudley Henry W O Davis Woodford J H Thompson of Bourbon was absent When It was announced that a quo rum was present Mr Thomasson opened the proceedings by saying Less than a month ago we met and fixed the date for a primary At that time I stated that Campbell Cantrill would probably be a candidate and I presented his views I understood that In letters to other committeemen he had asked that the date be as late as August By calling the primary May 12 the committee disregarded his wishes He then declared his candidacy and has announced that he would abide by the action of the com mittee I want to say now that any change In tho date will not be at his suggestion or desire Ho accepted your action In good faith pitched his canvass on this understanding and made several speeches Ho Is not ask- Ing for further time Mr Kaufman In reply to Mr Thom asson said As has been said by the chairman no oppooltlon to Mr Kim ball was anticipat it has been customiry to send Ashland

following resolution Whereas The Hon J Campbell Cantrill one of the announced candi dates for Congress In this district ob jects to ha ig the nomination made on the 12th day of May and desires that the time of making the nomina tion for Congress be set for a later date therefore Resolved That the resolution adopted by this committee on the 28th day of March last directing that a primary election of the Democratic voters of the Seventh Congressional District be held on the 12th day of May 1908 for the purpose of nomi nating a Democratic candidate for Congress In said district be and the same are now rescinded and set aside When the resolution was read Mr Thomasson again took the floor In op position to such an action He said Mr Cantrill did criticise the ac tion of the committee and justly The people criticised Its action and justly I got his letter expressing his wishes and he told me he had sent letters to all of you But I want It understood that he la not now asking for a later date He has accepted your action in good faith lit there are no other candidates I am opposed to our rescinding our former action It has been published as May 12 and the people expect It to be held then If you change now what assur ante will Mr Cantrill have that In thirty or sixty lays you will not make another change Mr Kaufman replied that he for one received no such letter from Mr

that place Relative and friends as well as the soldiers arm scouring the county in an effort to cate Harris and It is feared that he has met with foul play at the hands of parties Implicated In the raids Harris gave important testimony that led to the arrest of several alleged night riders and since that time fears had been entertained lest he should be waylaid It is the opinion of some that he has been kidnapped to prevent him from testifying before the grand juryHarris started to Murray presum ably to testify Wednesday morning If he reached towh nobody here has been found who saw him lint It Is believed that Harris never got to Mur ray Yesterday friends from his neighborhood were In town inquiring about him but they eft without se curing any satisfactory Information They held a conference with County Judge Wells following which soldiers and deputy sheriffs started out Harris is the principal witness In the west side cases Without his evi dence there would be doubt about In dictments although there are two or three other witnesses who may know enough to justify the finding of bills Capt Caudlll dressed as a farmer left for the county this morning He refusal to discuss why he was so dis guised or where he was going Opin ion is that he will do detective work in an attempt to locate Harris The witness wife is frantic Her theory Is that he has been ambushed or kidnapped He had no reasonable excuse to flee because two soldiers were standing guard at his home day and night to protect his family and property Secrecy Is still maintained by the grand jury It was reported this morning that fifteen Indictments have been found and probably the first batch will be returned in open court today A promlnentlawyer stated that he had learned that some Indictments were agreed on but knew no names There is rumor of names but not from an official source Why the Indict ments of men in jail or out on bond would be kept from the public Is not understood or explained

Gross In which he said Jim Howard said to him In the Frankfort Jail that Arthur Goebel had been making mouths at him all day in the court room and that if he had him out In the open he would give him what the gave his brother William Goebel He said Gross had been considered a competent witness for the defense when they endeavored to prove by him that eJy Youtsey alone was responsible the assassination and that ho jtt he should be considered iuu enough to use as a witness to move that Howard fired the fatal shot Mr Goebel also quoted from other testimony to show that both Powers and Howard are guilty He said that he has assisted the prosecution in these cases for the past eight years and that he has always kept within act3Imonwealths Attorney Franklin whoI first took up the question of denying bail to Powers He said the grant lug of ball was discretionary with the Circuit judge and quoted from the statutes to sustain his points In response to a question from the Governor

special term shall be held while a reg ular term Is being held In any other county In the district Mr Franklin said that before the election In 199 Powers said in a speech that If they won the offices they would keep them at the breech of a gun If necessary That following these words he brought or sent men here to intimidate the State Election Wlllson Interrupted to say that he was present as an attorney In 1899 when these men came to Frankfort and that he was Instrumental In having them promptly sent the afternoon sitting Col Frank fin said there could be no compensation for Arthur Goebel to

fire which promised to be one of the most serious Frankfort has suffered in many months was averted Thursday afternoon by the prompt re sponse of the fire department and the effective work of Chief Conway and his men The fire started In a lot of hemp stored In the basement of the South Warehouse on Broadway street and is supposed to have originated from a spark from a passing engine There was a stiff wind blowing durin-g the afternoon and particularly the time the fire was discovered so that if the flames could not have been checked until they reached the second floor where they could have been fan ned by the wind there Is no doubt but that the fire would have crept up the hill to the East Main street residences where there can be no estimate placed on the amount of destruction that would have been done As It was however it is not believed that the full extent of thedamage will exceed 4000 in allThere were some 40000 pounds of hemp In the basement which was the property of the Kentucky River Mills and It is said at least 50 per cent of this hemp can be saved There were several hundred barrels of whisky stored In the warehouse but luckily for those owning property near the fire was under control before It reached that part of the building In which the whisky was stored AMONQ THE SICK r Mrs Nellie Church who has been quite at her home on Shelby street was yesterday said

KENTUCKY LECTURED GETS MAXIMUM YIELD Mr Homer W Jackson writes in terestingly in the National Stock- man and Farmer of the method of farming persued by Lowell Roudt bush of Clermont county Ohio Mr Roudebush has been a regula lecturer of the Kentucky State Department of Agriculture for the past two years and he Is one of the most popular lecturers ever employed by that department The article will be especially Interesting to those who lave heard Mr Roudebush lecture The article Is as follows- A Private Experiment Station The farm of Lowell Roudebusl Clermont county Ohio though neat and showing evidence of careful farming would probably dish point a good many for the reason that everything Is done on a comparatively small scale No one however who understands the wor being done here will criticise the This is a private experiment sti tion The whole farm is devoted to i experimenting From strawberries to forest trees and from alfalfa to cows everything has some experiments rvalue and it ought not to surprise or disappoint any one to find that most of the operations are conduc ed on a small scale It could not be otherwise where help is as hard to r get as it Is here and where there ia such a multiplicity of details requli ing the attention and the work or Mr Roudebush himself To one who It las had a small part in private ex peiimental work it is amazing to see the variety of subjects that Mi Roudebush Is Interested in and bls success in making most of his ea iperlinental work profitable- I Know no better way to describe rtthis farm than to take the roads over it as I went over It last fall discussing the experimental crops we came to them The farm con elsts of 98 acres about five mile from the Ohio river It is rather hilly glaciated limestone soil natur ally fertile but in common with all the land in this section had been farmed a long time and was badly exhausted when Mr Roude bush took charge of It 16COO Quarts of Strawberries Per Acre t Along the road Is the strawberry i patch only one twenty eighth of at acre but yielding an Income of Iron to 70 each year He thinks he can produce berries at the rate ol 16000 quarts to the acre and in fact is coming very close to it now tl I asked him why he did not have a r larger acreage since he got such extraordinary resuts and he mentioned lack of help Back of that is the better reason however that if he grew more berries he would have to do less experimenting plong other lines and that is not to be thought of His cultural methods do not greatly differ from general practice and 4his success seems to be due to pe culiar fitness of soil and climate and- experience in selecting the best va yrieties He plants in rows four feet i apart and two feet atpre or less as to variety in the row lets each plant set eight runners at once and rri then keeps all others down He pre fers Bubach Haverland and Enhance Cultivates often applies commercial fertilizer during the summer and sprays with Bordeaux Just before growing stops In the fall and in the spring before blossoms open Mulches with straw and leaves Next to the strawberries are the raspberries and blackberries in small f plats but giving wonderful yields Then we crosed into the apple or- chardf I presume there is less than itan acre here and some of the trees it were destroyed a couple of years ago by a wind storm The hogs of which rr he raises a few each year are allow- edr to run In the orchard part of the time and the trees are boxed round r to prevent being rubbed They are manured every year with coarse mat nure and reguay sprayed As a result these trees have averaged 7 to 8 worth of fruit apiece annually- r for several years and as they are planted 30x30 that is at the rate of 300 or better an acre His apple crop last year was small but he had some beautiful specimens and he supplied part of the Ohio apple ex hiblt at JamestownAlfalfa From there we went to the ateatea field whlc looks about as sick as most other old seedtngs that I saw last season Mr Roudebush Is a plo neer with alfalfa and claims to have been exp rhneiiting with it before Allen O Myers ever heard I It Last seasons unfavorable weather Idlled

broadcast and with thorough tillage die had a crop of 45 bushels per acre last season The other side of the field originally no better but longer In process of building up yielded 97 bushels per acre last season Mr Roudebush is a persistent user of commercial fei tllizer but would not have it in hi3 corn fields as a gift if he had to apply it in the row He has twenty acres of timber a1d Is trying to apply scientific methods to Its management but the win storm already referred to wrought havoc here and It will be some time before he gets the improved part of his timber lot back to where it was before the storm The same thing has hindered his carrying out the plan as begun over the entire twenty and a Half Tons of Hay to Act Coming back by way of the old barn where his tools are stored and past a hedge fence that he is klllln out experimentally we came to a meadow seeded to timothy September 1905 and to alslke clover last sprint where the timothy did not catcl From this he cut timothy and alsik hay both at the rate of two and a half tons per acre Such a yield of aI slke five months from date of seeding Is remarkable but last year was remarkable one for all clovers of that seapQRa seeding Nothlngspec1i1l was done to secure this yield except the application of 200 pounds of fertilizer to the acre Clover does not do well here and that is an important disadvantage Rye is used as a cover crop and Mr Rou debush considers it an agriculture crime to leave a foot of ground bare In the same field with the timoth covered heavil solcoveredof fertility The Cows Four cows are kept on this farm and provide an important part of th Income An average of about 300 pounds of butter from each cow 01 1200 pounds a year is the record forI this branch of farming I he revels in experimental

described the more important work That Mr RoudebushI md his wife and son are practically all the work and do o successfully is surprising It is small wonder that there are no very large fields There Is no room to doubt that a good deal more money could be made here if a few of the more successful lines were pushed more extensively but Mr Roudebushs interests are too varied and his passion for experi eating too keen to permit him toI settle down to Just making money In addition to all this work and his extensive engagements as an in tltute lecturer and writer for farm papers he has managed to find time to do an Immense amount of reading Js known among his brothers on the force as the Encyclopedia and is remarkably familiar with a large II brary that Is about as varied as his inning

RULES INSURANCE COMMI- y SIONER BELL ON THIS FORM OF SPECIAL LIFE POLICY State Insurance Commissioner Cha- W s Bell in a written opinion issue d Thursday holds that board contracts or special nolicies for life insurance are against Uc 1rICY anti coiar y t to the statute which prohibits any Ills crimination in premium rates He has beard arguments on both sides of the question for Ieveraleeks and say3- the writing of such contracts mUtt ceaseBoard contracts provide that cer taro persons in various localities shall be grouped into local boards and given a rebate on their insurance premiums in the form of dividends on the ground that it is payment t them for their influence and efforts In securing other business for the company This has been a favorite plan with new Insurance companies to secure a big lot of new business as rapidly as possible His opinion in the matter is as follows jCommissioner Bells Ruling Insurance Department of Kentucky Frankfort April 16 1908 To the Life Insurance Companies authorized to do business In Ken tucky Shortly after assuming the duties rofthe office of Insurance Commission er my attention was called to the leged fact that certain Insurance com t panics writing what are termed Board Contracts or Special Con 1 tracts or sometimes Advisory Board Contracts This it was leged was In violation of the law and contrary to the ruling of former Insurance Commissioner Henry R Prewitt in which he said In opinion the issual of these- contracts isn clear violation of the antirebate laws of this State Those socalled Special Contracts while varying very greatly are In substance as follows The scheme consists of inducing a certain number of people to insure by means of making themselves members of a board or club of persons who have done like Wise and to whom in the aggregate Is to be given some special advantage In proportion to the business done insurance In force or premiums collected by the company everywhere or within a specified territory Once filled the board Is not to be enlarged nor vacancy caused by death or lapse to be filled so that great hopes of fabulous gains because bf diminished numbers are held out These con tracts are of such a questionable na ture that many of the States have legislated against them and in still many other States where there is no special legislation referring to them the Insurance Commissioners have ruled against them and have refused to admit companies that issue them r Passing by for the present the ethIcal objections to such Contracts I find upon examination of the insurance laws of Kentucky that they are plain ly forbidden by Section 656 Kentucky Statutes which is as followsl No llfesinsurance company doing business in Kentucky shall make or permit any distinction or dlscrimi nation in favor of individuals between Insurants of the same class and equal expactation of life in the amount or payment of premiums or rates charged for the policies of life or endowment Insurance of in the dividends or oth er benefit payable thereon or in another of the terms and conditions a the contracts it makes nor shall any such company or any agent thereof r make any contract of insurance o I agreement as to such contract othe than is plainly expressed in the Icy issued thereon nor shall any suc company or agent pay or allow or of fer to pay or allow as inducement to insurance any rebate of premium pay able on the policy or any special fnfvor or advantage in the dividends ortother benefit to accrue thereon or any valuable consideration or induce meat whatever not specified in toe policy contract of insurance Every company or officer or agent thereof who shall violate the provisions of this section shall be fined in any stint not exceeding five hundred dollars tb be recovered by action in the name of the Commonwealth and on collection paid into the State Treasury Feeling that the decision of this de partment must be of far j reaching and momentus consequence be fere arriving at the conclusion stat ed above I gave both sides of this con troversy ample time to be heard both in person and by attorney and I have exercised the greatest diligence in the study of the subject and the utmost precaution in the preparation of this decision The learned counsel for one of the companies Issuing this kind of poll cy argued most adroitly that the corn pany which he represented sloes not violate Section 656 because It offers this contract to everybody that where each one has an opportunity to pur chase this kind of Insurance he can not claim that he Is discriminated against If he refuses to enter Into this contract But I take the broad ground svlrntSthe agents of the company many but the question hinges upon what the company itself actually Issues That the Special Contract is a dis crimination I have not the least doubt The section of the Kentucky Statutes quoted above says that no company shall make or permit any distinction or discrimination in favor of Indlvid unls betwgyj insurants of same class an Pal expectation of life etcNo one will deny that these Special Contracts do hold out hopes of great gain and that these gains can be gotten only from those persons holding policies with the company who have not procured this Special Contract I will go further and say that even the holders of these Special Contracts al though of the same class and equal expectation of life if they chance too be in different series can not be sure of procuring the same gains even though they render equal service for it is a physical impossibility for a company to procure and hold on its books the same amount of insurance from which these gains must accrue If as stated above a company by simple offering the Special Contract to all applicants for insurance can claim to be exempt from the provi sions of the law as set forth in Section 656 then arguing by analogy tho company could issue any sort of a discriminating policy and evade tho law merely offering itto prospective purchasers In short If would appear that the legality of the contract would depend upon its being offered alike to all persons applying for Insurance rather than upon the terms and pro visions contained therein That the law does not contemplate such a con struction is not for a moment to be doubted It was further claimed by the attorney for the company referred to above that In as much as the holder of this Special Contract might be called upon to give advice or Infor motion to the company that he would be entitled to special remuneration for same but I fall to see the justice of Kentuckyfor policyholderState and vice versa Therefore in conclusion I desire to state that I be SpecialContractsHe policy and I shall use all the powers of this department to prevent the seeitj1 Section 744i as follows There is hereby established in con nectlon with the Auditor of Public Accounts a department to be deslg tinted as the Insurance Department which shall be
