prominent and influential farmer who has information on which to base his figures told the Insurance man There will not be onehalf of one per cent of a crop this year I give those figures as an accurate estimate of the amount to be raised and It is not a wild guess There will be prac tically no tobacco grown in the Burley district It has been thought that there would be about ten per cent of a crop raised this year but this estimate is said to be far too large and members of the Burley board agree that there will not be even two per cent of a crop 1 Talk Of Raid By RidersmCAUSES TROOPS TO

i bushel mark In Chicago grain men who have been watching the advance with interest seemed inclined to think that it might go still higher before tie end of this month says the Courier Journal The price of corn in Louisville is governed entirely by the Chicago market The 81cent mark for corn marks the top price in 22 years with two exceptions In 1892 cash corn in May reached the Si mark advancing during the month from 40s cents to that figure by rea son of a corner The same figure for toe same reason was reached In 1884 There is no one in Louisville who re members the exact figures which maintained during the Civil war but the belief of many is that during that period of strife it never reached a point above 75 cents a bushel al though wheat soared to a mark hitherto unknown up to that time but which has been superseded since that timeExact statistics on corn have only been kept for the past twentytwo years Local grain men say that while the corner now being maintained by Patton may be responsible for a part of the increase the short crop not only in corn but In all other grains cuts a large and important figure in the phenomenal price Not only short crop and the corner were given as the- ca ses for Tuesdays record breaking price but the heavy rains all over the country have made It impossible for the farmers in the surplus corn States to market their crop at the attractive Jgure The local grain men feel sure thai the high price will be successfully maintained until the end of the mop Ther see no way for the corner e broken CHRONIC CONSTIPATION CURED One

Congressional District subject to the action of the Demo cratic Convention September 3 If Col John Whallen and Col W B a c Haldeman can bury the hatchet and forget their differences there is no reason for the other factions fn is e party to continue to fight each other Having set a good example the tw Louisville leaders now expect the Democrats of the State to meet a Lexington and forget the past lhe prospects for this being brought iabout do not seem to be good just a present The wing of the party which for want of n better name is called the Beckham crowd is pleading for r harmony and inviting back into the party the men who went off last year and elected Willson governor but they Insist that no one is entitled to lead except their own crowd They want to reorganize the party by keeping In the front all those who led before The antiBeckham wing of the party also clamors for harmony but wants reorganiizatlon and would eliminate the old crowd which held the office for seven f years Each side distrusts the other and while talking harmony is laying t plans to scoop up the delegates and run things This will not produce harmony The best plan is to choose leaders who were neither Beckham nor anti Beck hamwho have been Democrats all their lives and who stayed clear of the messes within the party during the last seven years It would not do to select either Beckham or anti Beckham men so the best plan would be to eliminate them both and let Gov Beckham cease to be an issue In the Democratic party He says he is out of politics and his name should not be used as meaning factional 3troubles WlJlIa Democratic governor or carry the State for Mr Bryan those Democrats must come back and vote the Demo cratic ticket How best to get them back is the problem which the party leaders face Each side wants them back but neither side seems to be 1 willing to make any concessions p the other They are both going into the State convention cocked and primed for a fight and the result is hardly likely to be harmony for Demo crats fight too hard to forget soon The cry of bolter has to be dropped that is a cinch e That such a state of lawlessness ex ists in this county and vicinity as makes State troops a necessity is shown by the attack on a party of girls and boys out for a hayride Wed- nesdayr evening They were pelted with stones and one young lady nar rowly escaped losing an eye It was just the natural outcome of the tobac co troubles and the night riders raids The lawless vicious element seeing the night riders go unpunished have notrstop at anything and to go outside the city limits after dark one needs a partythaving to carry arms to protect them selves Yet it would have been well If some of the party from Frankfort had had revolvers and could have killed some of the men who were soy depraved as to throw stones at girls The man who would throw a stone into a wagon crowded with girls and boys at night deserves to be shot down in his tracks for that man

be heard once more e The Optimist I L ByAR D The Optimist almost turned pessl mist last Sunday For reason therefor The Optimist would explain that he went to Louisville Sunday It was hot It was hot everywhere but all the powers of heat seemed to have centered their efforts on Louisville Then the smells Going into Louis vllle along that open sewer called Beargrass creek there were odors of all kinds except pleasant The street earn were crowded the streets were crowded and nobody cared much about anybody else And it grew hotter and hotter and the sun blazed down and made the asphalt almost boil It was a lovely day There was no air which is the thing most notic able about a city except in the winter One doesnt mind the heat if there is sortie air stirring and one can breathe Then The Optimist came back to Frankfort And he was glad to get back It was cool in Frankfort though the residents thereof did not know it and had been kicking lustily all day about how hot it was It was a rollef to grot off the train to a quiet cool place where the air does not have to wage battle with Beargrass creek and the glue factory before meandering along over the hot streets of Louisville to reach the lungs of the Hfidents Frankfort people did not know that they were lucky and probably envied the people who lived in the city but The Optimist has had enough of the cityin the summer anyhow and will require strong in ducements to get him there again ev n for a day On the street car down there Sunday afternoonabout 2 oclock when it tt j3 unusually hot a dapper and saneI timonius man was seated beside a per- spIring and very fat man who mopped his face and muttered to himself The individual who seemed possessed of the prudish piety which some men carry said to the fat man The atmosphere is exceedingly humid today and it Is warm Is it not Which you surely are right pard ner said the fat manUBut you aint overreachln the mark none when you say its warm If you ask me for my candid and frank opinion of the subject of this here weather I would rise to remark that It is hotter than thp hinges on the gates of the abode of the lost souls and that his royal c Satanic majecty would feel at home If he should be here The car approved of this descrlp tlon of the weather but most of the men used a shorter and more concise phrase in describing the weather e Gov Wlllson met his match tho other day A man came to see him about some business which was im portant to the man but not so im portant to the governor The governor was going to Louisville that aft ernoon and was due to tch the oclock train He did i a ocechad a s ness Then the two st i train The governor u g and the other man rUH Bfc all the time and telling what he ranted The governor replied in monosyllables rp serving most of his breath for the running The caller was lame but he was also a sprinter and he kept- t abreast of the governor and neve let up on his talk The two turned into Broadway making about ten miles an hour The train was in sight and was about to resume its Journey to Louisville The governor put on extra steam and so did the oth eer man He never lost his position right alongside the chief executive but it availed him little for he did not get what he wanted The golf links at the Country Club are getting into condition now that It has stopped raining long enough for a mowing

admitted killing so many men and who charged that the heads of the Western Federation of Miners Haywood Moyer and Pettibone had prompted him to manyof his crimes will never be hanged according to Clarence Darrow who was in Frank fort last Saturday to get some papers bearing on the murder of William Goe bel Mr Darrow represented Hay wood and Pettibone In the long trials at Boise Idaho and is familiar with the cases I charge during the trial that Or chard would never be hanged but that he would be allowed to live and that a deal had been made with him by which he was to escape capital punishment in return for testifying against Pettibone and Haywood said Mr Darrow This was denied by the attorneys for the prosecution and they insisted that this was not true They said Orchard would be hanged as soon as the trials were over He has not been hanged and will not be in my opinion He was to have been hanged some time ago and now they say he will be hanged on July but I believe that his sentence will beI commuted again and that he will to prison for life There are murder charges against Orchard In several States and there has been some talk of trying to get at him in other States so that he san be hanged as he so richly deserves but to get him in any other State he would have to be pardoned in Idaho the editor of the Appeal to who offered a reward pf 1000 for the kidnapping of

of under yourhat Information that I thought only a few of insiders knew I am impelled to think that the News is one of us As a matter of fact the News published the story before it had begun to seep out to the De mocracy and now that it has everyone from the boys In the trenches to the leaders is throwing up his hat in great jubilation If there Is still any doubt among those who would wish such a condition not to exist among the factionrent elements of Louisville I am in a position to confirm the story without quallfIca tion Even while the story was be ing published all the men in the get together compact were shaking hands over it That should be an Inspiring procession down the cen ter aisle of the convention hall In Lexington on June 11 made up of Col W B Haldeman Col John H Whallen John W Vreeland Chas F Grainger and Aaron Kohn march ing in order for the first time since 1899 I take it that such a shout of Joy will go up from the delegates as has never before greeted any one group of men in the State It means of course that the factional differ ences which have torn the Democratic party in Louisville for the past ten years are at an end That in turn assures old time Democratic victories In this city leaving no more room for fusion tickets bamboozling the public with a campaign cry of form and taking the first opportunity in office to use every device of the corrupt politician to further their partisan Interests Hereafter it must Ibe a straight fight between Democrats and Republicans with no masquerading Last Saturday former Gov Beckham and former General Percy Haly came to Louisville and put up at one of Louisvilles most pretentious hotels It was a quiet visit on private busi ness so the public was allowed to know Having removed the stains of their sixty odd miles of travel they proceeded to the private business of arranging an interview with Col John H Whallen former close friend and sometimes political ally of the ex Governor Mr Beckham presents his com pliments to Col Whallen and would be pleased to call upon Col Whal len about a little matter of politics was In effect the message that passed Col Whallen Is very sorry but he is now engaged in managing the amusementwill be too busy to receive Mr Beck ham was In effect the answer re former Governor looked at the former Adjutant General and the former Adjutant General looked at the former Governor Then simultaneously and both together Governor and General re marked now what do you know about that 5 0 Speaking of Governor Beckham minds me of a rumor I have been hearing They tell me that the Governor is incubating a speech which is to be sprung on the delegates to the Lexington convention next month In which he harks back to hiS race for the United States Senate and hands out a few lemons to his friends that were or he thought were According to the story which I do not attempt to vouch for he plans to say in a few choice chaste that former State Senator J Wheeler Campbell and the Hon r were the beneficiaries of his largeness in their campaigns for legisla tives preference and that It wits not but the shoddiest of course work for when he needed them most In other words so the story goes if Mr Beckham felt cordial enough to contribute his personal check to help then1t defray their campaign expens es they should have found it in their hearts to vote for him when he need ed their votes That Is the unvar nished way to put It Louts Summers at present one of the only Democratic Oases in the Republican City Desert want to be advanced from the position of City

summation devoutly not to be wish ed He would succeed Collector Craft under whom Charley served before he was elected on the recent Republican ticket It is said that when Mr Craft got his office Charley had a hard time making a living that the assignments under Mr Craft consumed very little of his time and in the natural order gave him very little spare change Mr Scholl did not like the condition neither did his friends so If he should succeed Mr Craft scores would be evened If Mr Scholl should get the Craft berth he could do much to build that Custom House City Hall Bridge which Marse Henry has spoken about Mr Craft has never done much for the Republicans while he has had the may have noticed that the Louisville Boan1 of Public Safety after hearing complaints against the

NOVEMBER Mr Watterson In the CourierJour naf saysMr was wisely prompt In proposing that Mr Taft should unit with him In an appeal to Congress pass the Publicity Bill Mr Taft safely wary in replying that he has been for the Bill all along Mr Bryan has a solid party vote to offer in favor of the bill Each Is recognized as the coming standardbearer of his party Which party Is honest and which is not Upon the issue here clearly joined can one true Democrat in the United States hesitate on account of any former differences to ac cept Mr Bryan as his Chief In the coming struggle Discounting the friction and the heat of controversy the case made by the CourierJournal against the nomi nation of Mr Bryan turned upon the point of his advlslblllty Some one we thought representing in a less de gree the discords which have driven so many Democrats out of line gave promise of running stronger in the batable States At no time did propose to ride roughshod over Mr Bryan or his disputable following Our contention was aimed to unite not to divide the party It is the belief of the oldstagera that Mr Bryan had a broad straight and open highroad to the White House before him in 1906 and that he blocked this by the Railway Owen ership passage of his Madison Square Garden speech The CourierJournal sufficiently threshed that straw at the time and ragerds it as not worth our while now to nurse any regrets or to waste any tears about It It is as milk that was spilled as water that is passed In point of fact we are no more menaced by Railway Ownership than by an overflow from the canals of the planet Mars All that can be said against Mr Bryan in that con I4nection is that he gave undue em phasis to the radicalism of the party l at a turning where the mass and body commonjpaths of axiomatic Democracy leaving the incidentals to adjust themselves as we got the opportunity and the power to consider them In other words the severest criticism that can i bp passed upon Mr Bryan is that h- eitpissed the psychologic moment as the saying has it and was superbly imprudent 1 Let it pass There was nothing it then there is nothing to it now not even a string Theodore Roose Socialismf so n and his dream of Railway Ownership quite back into the shade to make Conservativtwould constitute either Free jHe or Railway Ownershipa for further opposing Mr Bry not a Democrat and never was a l Democrat Such a man would den his brother on account of the cot he to wear last winter H ea rwould refuse to walk abroad at nigh because he thinks the moon is mar of green cheese Meanwhile the
