Speeds Friendship Lid Being Tilted With Great t Regularity SUNDAY CLOSING ALMOST JOKE Special Correspondence Louisville Ky July 3It has been given out that R I James Dick for short is to retire from the Board wdipUbllc Safety in Louisville about July 15 Dick has said himself that he would leave the board at that time 1ilbecause he finds the duties of the board interfere with his duties with the Belknap Hardware Manufacturing Company Now wouldnt that Jar you Of course Richard had no Idea how urgent his duties with the hard ware company were when he took the sinecuf at the City Hall Its an old storythat resigning a fat leisurely political plum pudding because other duties require more attention But as a rule something else Is behind such resignations Naturally In this case I understand Mr James was ask ed to resign by one no more in authority than Mayor G instead It seems that Mr James was too good a friend of Capt Pope Speed who was forced to resign under charges from the Board of Public Safety that he vas protect ing gambling and bawdy houses in the red light district and that he was re delving bribes from red light sources Now Richard was Pope Speeds par titular friend Speed was advanced from detective to captain of police so rapidly that it would make a mans head swim Pope was using the citys vehicles and horses to take his family out riding on Sundays by special per rait from Dick He was very busy with the citys equipage the night tie Ifore the notorious Republican prim- aryfin April the most outrageous ever cacqndlcted in this city according to the Republicans themselves Mr James was such a good friend of I Speeds that he didnt want the grand Jury to Investigate the Speed doings In the red light j I understand that after all the hul vlabaloo was raised about Speed Mar shal Bullltt chairman of the board wanted James to get out of the board and I have heard that he threatened to resign himself unless James did so It was then that tho Mayor so I am told asked Mr James If his private affairs werent so onerous as to com pel him to give all his attention to them Mr Jamen didnt think they were at first and when It was pub lished in one of tho papers here that Mr James was about to leave tho board some of his yawping friends mounted their hind legs and let out an awful roar Simultaneously with Mr James discovery later that the hard ware business was picking up his goats made the same discovery and It was officially announced that ho would retire Now the whole affair smells to me I like a stench from n source too where the public was led to believe during a violent campaign that there was naught but rose water The public was told that the Republicans had an exclusive franchise on all the mor ality that wad floating In Lotlsvlllo and they persisted so In these claims that they actually had some of the good people down hero believing It It would be difficult to find n more dis gusted lot than those who wore bam boozlcd Into thinking that the Repub licans were honest when they an nounced that they proposed to give iieulsvlllo u clean administration 0And ubilo I am talking about honest Republican administrations ville it would be well to call attentionI to the Sunday closing laws Ther are many of the saloonkeepers do here honestly observing the law a the regulations There are others w do a bigger business on Sunday thau they do on any other day but certain of these the police never discover With a great flourish of trumpets Chief of Police Haager announced a week or two ago that each policeman would beheld responsible for all sa loons on his beat and that if it was shown that saloons were doing busi ness on Sundays on their beats the patrolmen would walk the plank I observe that a number of saloon keep ers were arrested last Sunday charged with keeping their saloons open Since then I have seen no indications of po licemen out of Jobs One detective who has been especially active has been advanced in rank for his wonkas an example It was said by the big wigs of the department A cute trick to make the public forget the grand stand declaration that saloonblind po licemen were to be given the finger It nil looks to me as If the Holier Than Thou Republicans were laying the foundation for a fine bit of election machinery to which the immune sa loonkioiKrs and the police favorites are twu valuable cogs

Straight Whiskies Government Enforces New Food RegulationsI Franklin County Interested In The Rules DIG DEMAND FOR BOTTLED IN BOND Straight whisky such as is made in this county and which is the only kind made here is at a premium now and there is a big boost in the business of the distillers since the United States Government has begun to enforce strictly the proper branding of liquors under the last pure food law This law requires all liquor to be labeled according to what it really is and the rectifiers and those who have been adulterating whisky have been shoved into the background The following dispatch from Washington to the Cour ierJournal is of interest to Franklin county where there are many distil leriesAfter defeating an attempted injunc tion by the rectifiers blenders and compounders of imitation whisky in States District Court at nlgbllltheswing putting into effect the branding regulations scheduled for operation throughout the United States on this opening day of the new fiscal year In seventy internal revenue collection districts spreading throughout some fifty States and Territories the vast army of Government gangers lo cated at over 2000 rectifying com pounding and blending houses are acting under orders from nearly a hundred collectors and are marking and branding the heads of barrels In to which mixtures blends and com pounds are drawn with the prescrib ed words of blend compound or imitation as the case may be in strict accordance with the requirements of the Federal pure food law as construed by the now celebrated What Is Whisky opinion t Attorney General Bonaparte find the Ings made thereunder by Presidentt Roosevelt in support of the views for which Dr Wiley has become known all over the country The neutral spirit makers and blenders have fought the new regula tions with great bitterness In strik ing contrast to those interests the Governments views have been enthusiastically approved and supported by the straight whisky distillers Those straight whisky distillers can continue under the pure food law and the In ternal revenue regulations labeling their product as whisky as they hove always done It being tho natural un mixed article to which Attorney Gen eral Bonaparte has restricted tho application of the unqualified term the puro food agitation began tho business of the straight whisky distillers has returned to approxl mately tho largo volume In which It was distributed before tho day of the rectifier and blender The most con spicuous increase in the sale of straight whisky has been in connec tion with tho bottling in bond fea tureFour years ago less than a million gallons of whisky wont out to tho pub lie under the Governments green guarantee stamp protecting it from adulteration The figures for tho years just closed will show that ovo 5000000 gallons have been bottled in bond within the lust twelve months Only three StatesPennsylvania Kentucky and Mftryland recorded bottling in bond operations a few years back while now whisk Is being put un der the green stamp In over fifteen dif r ferent States Rectifying or blending operatj n are today carried on in forl fcfferenjp5tates and Terri tor the

just before going prohibition o Strike Fine Spring On Elkhorn Creek SPLENDID FLOW OF CLEAR COLD WATER AT FRANKFORT DISTILLING CO IWhile excavating for a pool at the Frankfort Distilling Cos plant on Elkhorn the other day a stream of water as large as a mans leg clear and pure and with a steady temperature of 56 degrees was struck entirely un expectedly The pool was being made for the storage of water at the Baker distillery and the spring which has always been used was being carefully guarded It being the intention to fill the pool from this spring The pool is a large one and is 20 feet deep To get the proper depth It was necessary to blast put the rock in one end and when a charge of dynamite was set off the big stream of water gushed up from the rocks The new spring Is one of the finest In the State The water Is from a limestone formation and is absolutely pure It flows with some force and shows no signs of diminution As the water in Kentucky is what makes Kentucky whisky different from any tether whisky the spring at the Baker distillery is Invaluable o FRANKFORT MECCA FOR THE TOURISTS Strangers Roam Over Old- And New Capitol All Wont To See Place Geo bel Fell STONE MARKER IN WRONG PLACE The new capitol Is a strong drawing card to bring people to Frankfort and hardly a day passes but one can see tourists roaming around over the old and the new State house The visi tors never neglect the old capitol bu It Is the new capitol which lures them and they go away from here greatly pleased and all saying that Kentucky has a capitol of which every person in the State might well be proud Nearly every week for the last two months there have been excursions 1run by some Sunday school or church which have brought hundreds of per sons hero from all over the State and it has done much for business In Frankfort The favorite place for the tourists though Is the place where Goebel fell and tho stone that marks tho spot or rather which is supposed to mark the spot but which misses It several feet is always carefully exam fined Everybody who comes here for tho first time stands on It and usually goes Into the Secretary of States of fide to squint out the window along tho line to tho old hackberry tre which has become a part of Kentucky history In the pavement which leads to tho State house is n stone marker which s supposed to designate the place where Gocbcl fell It was put there by the old custodian cf the State house grounds He was worried by the hun dress of people who wanted to bo shown where Gcebol foil and so he said to himself I will fix It iHo then had the stone put down and that kept off tho questioners But be- missed the spot Ho put tho stone where according to tho witnesses- Jack Chinn stood when tho shot was fired and Goebol was a little lower down and a few feet further away This is not known however except to few and tho visitors still think they IIa standing on tho spot whore Ooe ol and they keep on coming Which IIS just as well PR1ING KNIFE Used At The State Charitable Institutions Six Useless Jobs Are Already Abolished New Superintendents Will Cut Off More MEN MUST DO FULL DAYS WORK Dropping oil of useless positions at the State charitable institutions has already begun and the pruning knife will be used until the working forces at the three asylums and at the Feebleminded Institute will be ma terially reduced The Board of Con trol of Charitable Institutions has al ready abolished three positions at the Lexington Asylum and three at the Hopkinsville Asylum and when the In new supreintendeuts at those two in institutions get thoroughly into the workings of the asylums several more places will vacant It Is the in tendon of the new superintendents to combine positions and in many Instances have one man do work which formerly was done by twot In this way it is hoped to make the cost of operation of the three asylums very much less At Lexington three positions have been abolished by the Board of Con a trol These are treasurer inspector and pathological physician The lat al ter was supposed to make examina tions of the patients and make tests of their blood and other things but the Board believed that the position was a sinecure and abolished it The physician who had the place had a large practice in Lexington and the Board was of the opinion that he was not needed at the asylum An spector whose duty it was to keep a general watch over the whole insti tution and make reports to the super intendent was also employed at the Lexington asylum It was said that he did not inspect and that the place was useless so the Board cut this Boardtfound further that at Lexington as at the other asylums there was no need for a treasurer any bank being willing to act as treasurer In orde- to get the deposits which amount to a good deal At Hopkinsville three positions were abolished They were house keeper farm boss and treasurer The housekeepers duties could be filled by aome of the other employes of the place it was thought by the Board so they dismissed the house keeper and the work is now being done by the other attendants about Uie place The farm boss had u good easy Job tho Board says Stanley Milward a member of tho Board found that the farm boss was provided Vita a house fcod for his family and Dilloward said wcro only to supervise the crops and he simply drove about the farm for a short while each day The jcb was a cinch Mr Milward said and at his instance the place wa abolished It paid a good salary in addition to providing the boss with the comforts of life Just at present these six places are all that have been abolished but more is to come when the new superintend ents get down to work and uso the pruning knife as they expect to The Board says there Is no desire to up set the arrangements at the asylums but that It has been found that many places now tiled by two men can be combined so that ono man can d too work As an instance It Is cted that at Lexington one man does nothing hart act as butcher No boa f Is killed at the asylum and tho butch ers solo function Is to cut up tho meat a job which duos not require moro f t than two hours each day Another man attends the cold storage while a third has a general supervision of the milk and puts the milk in the cold storagf He is filled gPfalryman The cold storage man and the dairyman will not have easy sailing in the future as the two places will be comblned nd oilwill go out Several other places are to be cut off In the same way and one man will have to do a mans work the Board being against any Job which does not occupy a mans time for at least eight hours every day The management of the asylums Is to be left largely to the superintendents and they will do what chopping off of heads is to be done a HAVE TROUBLE Republican Committee In Several Contests FIRST MEETING WILL SEE FIGHT BETWEEN GILLUM AND BY R LEY The troubles of the Republican State Central Commltee which was elected at the recent State convention Louisville will begin at the first meeting of the committee to be held Louisville on July 8 and from number of complaints being made intvarious sections of the State It is likely that the troubles of the executive body will multiply Instead of di minish The first meeting will witness a con est between William Gillum and W W Byrley as to which is the rightful chairman of the Knox County Execu five Committee the contest for the office having recently been filed by Byrley after Gillum had been named as the chairman Byrley was formerly member of the State Central Committee from the Eleventh congresslon district and served as chairman of the County Executive Committee for the past four years and he now lays claim to the chairmanship of the coun ty committee This is so far the only contest filed before the State Central Committee but It is said the same condition prevails in several other counties of the State and It is expected that other contests will be filed before the meeting of the committee on next Wednesday- In the contest filed from Knox county Byrley appeals from the decision of the Congressional District Committee which decided in favor of Gillum but A S Bennett secretary of the State Central Committee said Thurs day that he had not read the appeal as filed and could not tell the exact nature of the contest or the specific charges made by Byrley It is said the wrangle between the two men for leadership in Knox county has result arwarm result when the appeal Is taken up by the State Central Committee In some of the counties In the State the county committees have so far tailed to organize because of disputes over the chairmanshipsyt yfiandties will likely be represented at the meeting to seek advice on the man ner of organization and the

13Of The Man 4A Dont Drink r- Retires Smoke And Early ALWAYS PLAYS ON TOP OF TABLE The squarest man in politics and business in Kentucky This is what Charles F Grainger r of Louisville is now and has always been The editor of this paper knew Mr Grainger intimately when the latter was mayor of Louisville and the editor was a reporter for a Louisville newspaper covering the City Hall beat He learned to know Mr Graing er and to know that when Mr Graing- er said anything he meant just wha he said and that when he promised to do a thing it was certain to be done t They say in Louisville that Mr Grainger is the only man ever elected mayor of Louisville who kept his promises and he is certainly the only mayor who went out of office at the end of his term stronger than when he went in In looking over some ex changes the other day the following which relates to Mr Grainger was dis covered and is published that the readers of this paper at least may know what kind of a man Mr Grainger Is Much Abused Grainger Perhaps no man in Kentucky politics has been more abused or vlllifled than Charles F Grainger Louisville rea11ytIk man whose life is purer cleaner o more wholesome than his His sturdy stand for the Democrats of Louisville t4 arrayed against him an element of the citizens of the metropolis who on ac count of Graingers grip on the local organization and his interest in racing in Kentucky caused them to feel that y the man was the embodiment of all thte r Grainger is now out of politics and has retired to private life But the story of a Louisville Fusionist who foughtia side of the mans life that hasnev er been known generally Graingers friends however who have been closely associated with him have ways known the type of man he was And therefore the story is nothing new to them The fact that some 38 000 of the 40000 of the citys money was recently spent in an effort to get some intimation of something that might cast suspicion on the former mayor only resulted in the dollars go ing up in smoke and Graingers hon thte e few men in Kentucky so his friends declare have the respect and esteem of the people who know him more than Charles F Grainger has The story is told by a Louisville Pusionist and not by Grainger for he does little talking The Fusionist who in the heat of two political campaigns had abused Grainger unmercifully met with the former mayor in an Eastern i city some time ago and spoke to him Grainger always courteous and polite extended his hand and shook that of the Fusionist with great cordiality Charley said the other man I didnt think that you would speak so kindlyWhy I not asked Grainger pleas antly I am always glad to see a Kentuckian anywhere Something of His Habits Graingerttwent up to his room with the Fusion 1st following him Walking in the other saidJCharley have a cigar No I thank you replied Grainger Donrt let that prevent you though After lighting up the Fuslonlst went to the telephone and ordered some wineYoull Join me In this anyhow heI saidI am very much obliged respond trAppolinaris for me I never drink Do you mean to tell me that you dont drink I never do I dont object to othI ers drinking Just as long as they doI not permit their drinking to interfere with their business and then I dont r care unless they are working for me Thats my ticket but Im not too good to drJnkI Just dont do It I Well Ill be ddl said his com panion And yet we have been claim ing down home that you were a bad fellow and that we were good citi zens Grainger smiled withra you or silence for a time Lets have a little theatre party and a dinner said his friend with a wink indicating that there might be som side attractions Youll have to scratch me again spoke up Grainger Really I am sor ry but you know you are Jittle too s I usually r we early At home I keep regular hours and I try to do the same when away Well Ill be dd Grainger sai the Fusionist pacing the room You are a surprise to me But you set good example for a fellow I never knew you before Always on the Level He left Grainger went downstairs and won a few games at billiards He came back read the afternoon papers and prepared for bed A rap came and the door of the adjoining room open ed The Fusionist entered and saw by the side of his bedthe mayor of Louisville the atrocious boss kneeling in prayer The Fus ionlst stood silently in the middle of the floor and finally said Grainger do you say your prayers every night- t Every night of my life was th proud reply Ever since I was taught by my good old mother You are the best fellow I ever saw No I am not said Grainger quick ly I say my prayers because I thin I need to Look here man Im no goodygoody I simply believe in being on the level and in doing the best I can Thats the rule of my life I try to live every day so that I can look every dd man in the face and tell him to go to hell if I choose Thats my doctrine I say my pray ers and I have never done anything that my mother who taught me that prayer would be ashamed of Im happy and so there you are The Fusionist was saying good night By the way called Grainger if you know any horse that you think 600ron him Charley said the Fusionist You have set me the best example any man ever did I would have done things tonight that I should have re gretted if it hadnt been for you He clasped Graingers hand tightly Im for you stronger than any man in Louisville I say it although Im a Republican The next man I hearsay anything about you will have me to whip The Fusionist a good citizen and a man who had believed the Grainger tellssthis story all over town 0 County Board Will Handle Tobacco Crops CARROLL COUNTY SOCIETY TAKE OVER TWO MILLION POUNDS OF THE WEED The Carroll County Board of Con trol of the Burley Tobacco Society has tojbaccobacco

and the present drought Is one of the worst which has been perienced in this State All crops are suffering badly on account of the lack of rain according to the reports which have been received by the Com missioner of Agriculture and In some sections the crops will be almost a total failure Tobacco has suffered more than any other crop and the drouth has reduced the acreage which has been planted so that the crop Is going to be a small one The follow- Ing Is the report which has been made for the month of June by the Com missioner of Agriculture M C Rankin Burley Tobacco- In the counties of Spencer Hart Barren Hardin Green Grayson and part of Larue there Is about an aver age crop set out although set late and the prospect is not good on account of the dry weather In the counties of Anderson Bath Boone Bourbon Boyle Bracken Carroll Fleming Gal latin Grant Henry Kenton Madison Lincoln Mercer Montgomery Nicholas Oldham Owen Pendleton Robertson Shelby Scott Woodford and Harrison there Is 3 per cent of the crop planted which would be about 5350 acres In tho counties of Bath Boone Bracken Fleming GaHatln Grant Harrison Kenton Lincoln Mercer Nicholas Oldham Owen Pendleton Robertson Scott and Woodford our reporters have not reported any to bacco as being planted or going to be grown In several of these counties however we understand there will be grown very few crops at most We understand from citizens of the fol lowing counties reporting the conditions that no tobacco has been or will be planted Nicholas Fleming Frank- Lin Scott Woodford Owen Gallatin Boone Kenton

nearly all of this will be pooled There are fifteen counties that constitute the above percentage In the second division There are fifteen counties In the first division that report 100 per cent or a full crop planted and an average of 92 per cent In the whole Dark Tobacco growing district The weather throughout the State for the whole month of June was un seasonably was prac tically no rainfallThere was a high percentage of sunshine causing a general drought Wheat 6The weather has been very favorable for the harvesting of wheat and rye In many sections threshing has commenced and a good yield is being shown and as fine a quality as has been known for several years We have had several reports of insects damaging both the straw and the grain Oats The oats crop has not been so poor for several years The drouth has caused almost a total failure in many sections of the State and dry rust has helped to make the failures Hemp The hemp crop is growing splen didly but is badly in need of rain- Bluegrass Seed The harvest of Bluegrass seed was one of the largest known and the- quality is good although a lot of weeds were present Corn The corn crop will be an average one although the lateness of plant Ing and the hot weather causing acid ity of the soil in tho lowlands pre writing the seed from germinating worked a hardship Many farmers had to replant their corn for the second and

convention of harmony with con cessions made to all factions but no compromise with dishonor as Marse Henry would say The platform can not please everybody naturally and It would be a weak and futile thing if it could They tell a story of a din tinguished United States Senator who was extremely cautious He would not express an opinion on any subject positively One day at a club a crowd of Representatives and Senators were discussing this trait and a bet was made It had rained In Wash ington for two days and when this Senator came in he was asked Senator do you think it will quit ralpingIWehlie replied deliberately It alw S hasInrltIe kind of a platform They want a platform that will take a positive and decisive stand and which will let the people know where they are at There must be no trimming arid beating about but the platform must also con form to the various feelings of the Democrats The maker of such a l platform is to have a lively job on his hands He is to have the same sort of task as was once dealt out to a newspaper man Go up there and call them names show that they are crooked andI thieves and selling out but dont make them madrThat is what the writer of the Den ver platform has to do He may be able to do it At any rate the Dem ocrats have a good chance to laud the election this year o a Frankfort is on a boom again as Is shown by the directory which hasI just been Issued This shows the popf ulatlon to be nearly 14000 and this does not include some two hundred or moro persons who live beyond the city limits but do busniess In Frankfort Frankfort Is the best town of Its size in Kentucky beyond all question and k In a few years now that the capital y question is settled for all time the k town will be a city If one doubts iC that Frankfort Is a live town or that no 1body lives here one has only to go Into town at night and one will find the fer streets as crowded as they are in Louisville And then too Frankfort is K getting so big that everybody does ijt v not know everybody else The sign jVCof a small town is when the entire t populatlon knows everybody In a f Vj small town in Pennsylvania a stranger- S tasked a native how many people lived a The native began counting them on the fingers of his left hand and v that is the way one would have done Frankfort some years ago now it Is different Go to one of the numerous I1 moving pictures shows any evening tand one will find a crowd and a crowd that is not personally known to all those present Frapkfort Is growing fast tthere is no reason why it ft tshould not grow faster ir The Democrats of Kentucky should do as the Republicans have already done establish a permanent headquarters In Louisville from which the campaign could be conducted not for two or three months in the year but for twelve months In the year The result of the last election was due whiclrthe Republicans had In Louisville- r The fight to carry an election must be waged all the time It will not do to jump in during the last few weeks before the election and then attempt to perfect an organlzatio The or g fflfflrWmust be kept up all the time and the committee should in e touch with every precinct all the time It would be expensive but the money could be raised easily and with a compact organization the Dem ocrats would have things their own way in Kentucky o Gov Wlllson is within his rights in being sore because of the miscon struction placed on the which was published in the Cincinnati Enquirer He has been credited with saying that a majority of the tobacco growers are negroes and ignorant and lawless What he actually said as the article itself wil prove was that the laborers were negroes and lawless He meant the men actually employed in the field not the owners of the land The Governor is having his troubles these days but a Governor al ways does and it is to be expected p When has a man pardoned so many men as were pardoned by Gov Cox and not aroused criticism None of the pardons caused any protest and the course of the Acting Governor was warmly approved by everybody The prison officials and guards all say that he did exactly right in every stance and the convicts have something to look forward to and some incentive for good behavior knowing that their pardon does not depend on political pull o We are sorry to see Gov Cox leave Frankfort and go back to his home in Maysville He is always welcome in Frankfort and everybody here Is glad see him In the executive chair o James N Kehoe has announced for Congress in the Ninth district and if the Democrats nominate him he will win He is the kind of a man Kentucky needs in the National Congress o IePessimisrErstwhile The Optmist ByARD This column has changed No Optimist The Optimist has become a pessimist a rantankerous perverse disagreeable peevish and cross pessimist Almost a cynic The dictionary says a cynic is a person with a snarling disposition This is a good definition It fits this case exactly Perhaps once having snarled good long time and having been very vicious and perverse the spell will leave and things will once mere as sume the rosy hue which Frankfort people should see in life But until then this column is not going under any false colors It is not going tot fly the stars and stripes and play the Star Spangled Banner until it has reached its unsuspecting victim and then run up the black flag of piracy No false pretenses If you read this It Is your own fault You saw the caption put there as a warning and if you dont like pessimism then you had no business tackling a column that is obviously and patently cross One of the typesetters said to The Optimist the other day Look here It seems to me that column of yours is not rightly named You do too much kicking for an opti mist Perhaps be was right Printers sometimes are So the change Now that It is a pessimist column thee author is going to run riot for a while and cut and slash right and left like a Malay run amuck

would be wrong not to do them but because custom says that they should be done Ones acts maybe wrong per se or wrong because they are forbidden The latter are not he wrong except that somebody with

Is it but your own Convention lays down certain rules action and you must subscribe to them or be put down as a freak And yet they say we live in a free country and are free agents That is the greatest mistake In the world We are tied hand and foot by convention and by fear of what the crowd will say Let a man deviate from tho usual and he is as the rogue elephant outcast Every person who is a member of society receives from that association certain privileges and in return gives up certain rights and privileges This is as it should be We cannot be selfish and think only ourselves or soclefy in the broad sense of that word would disin tegrate The more civilized we become the fewer privileges we have man In the city Is more restricted than that same mob in the country- In the country he may spit where he pleases if he does please but in the city he is told that It Is harmful and must not furthermore he Is fdreed abstain In the pity he hasrpaved streets trained police to protect him and his property and firemen to guard his house but he loses many rights that be would have in the country This Is all well enough But where transgresses no law or interferes with no one else he should be allowed do as he pleases and would do as e pleases but for lack of moral courage Mark Twain wore a solid suit white clothes because ho liked white clothes and because they suited him better The public allowed him to do it because he was a celebrity but the white clothes were worth col umns of space to Mr Clemens Everybody commented on his white clothes Being a strong man he resisted and continued to wear his white clothes theIcooked tomatoes excessively sweet There is no reason why he should not eat them that way if he wants to The sugar is not begrudged him but somebody at the table always comments on the quantity of sugar he uses on the tomatoes He must be castIron and deaf or eat tomatoes a6 other people eat them or not eat them at all merely because other people like them less sweet The Pessimist Is a nonconformist So far as he Is able without transgressing other persons rights he does as he pleases and he expects to continue regardless of being called queer a freak old and cranky a fos nil and selfish For instance there Is a crowd The crowd does not talk to him or of things which Interest him but the talk flows along in lines that are purely personal and Interest ing only to those involved Which is all right and proper The others want to talk that way and there is no rea son why they should not being In the majority The Pessimist leaves the crowd and goes to his room where he enjoys life reading a good story He is dubbed unsociable and a freak He is neither He is merely a human be ing who refuses to be bored or to bore qthers That Is all It amounts to He is not missed nor mourned and why should he not be allowed his own way 0Down in Louisville they have a skat ing rink for negroes It is or was located over n drugstore One night when it

white at that The Governor bought the suit in the East and wore it for daLfor a uniform which will make the white suit look out of place The Governor created something of a sensa tion when he walked through the streets last Tuesday afternoon in that thtrt nor turned the corner from the depot i going to the Capital Hotel at a lively rate for he was late and that white toBUit was flapping in the breeze which his movements stirred up The Gov ernor was feeling good though and he was smiling and bowing right and left The staff was watlng for him and they formed in line and marched along in imposing array with the white suit in the lead Frankfort ex petted to see the staff in uniform and was much disappointed when it was learned that this subject was the very thing which had brought all

ATTENDANCE AT SERVICE Last Wednesday evening at the prayer meeting services at the Baptist church Rev J M Roddy announced that hereafter during the hot summer months the male members of the church would be given the privilege of attending the Wednesday evening services in their shirt sleeves Mr Roddy said that he would lead the procession and would come to church to morrow night without his coat if the weather should be as sultry as It has been for the past week or so By the Introduction of this plan s hoped to greatly increase the at tendance of the men at the prayer meeting services It is a novel scheme and will doubtless prove pop ular Mr Roddy said that during the season of the union services he would have the prayer meeting take the place as far as possible of the regu lar Sunday night preaching services Harrodsburg Democrat o Business Mens Club Will Elect Officers The annual election of officers for the Business Mens Club will be held next Thursday night and It is expected

Is not often conferred and which is regarded as a great mark of distinction The Ken tucky papers made a mistake and had- e degree A M but the Governor told some of his friends here that it was the higher degree of LL D which he received It is said that the con ferring of the degree was received with great enthusiasm and the Governor of Kentucky was one of the conspicuous figures at the Harvard

With only 1333r0 In ury at the ending of the and with something like iwvuuu in unpaid warrants outstanding against this the State of Kentucky is facing a financial stringency and the State officials are worried Gov Willson nnd Capt Ed Farley the State treasurer held a conference Wednesday morn dng and admitted that the situation is serious and they will have to take some determined and decisive step to cure the financial evils which now ex 1st Where are we drifting Is a ques tlon which Capt Farley asked He asked it of the Governor and the Governor could not answer for he was looking at figures which are not pleas ant to contemplate The following table showing the amount of money on hand in the State treasury on July for the last four years was what caused the question to be asked by Capt Farley July 1905437343July 1 1906 323049 July l 1907 294242 9S July 1908 133379 This table shows a gradual shrink ing of the amount in the treasury and at the same rate of shrinking in 190S at the end of the fiscal year there would be nothing in the treasury This shrinkage is what is worrying the treasurer and the Governor And the expenses during the fiscal year which ended yesterday were not as great as the expenses will be for the year which begins today as the large ap propriations made by the last Legisla ture must be paid and the new capl tol must be furnished While the statement shows that there is in the treasury a total of 13337960 the outstanding warrants which have already been issued amount to over 150000 and the ex penses of the charitable Institutions must also be counted so that there really is a deficit of from 20000 to 50000 and no immediate prospect ol relief What will be done nobody knows The Governor said that It wasc simply an increased expenditure without the increase in receipts and that too much money had been spent before the Republicans took office The complete figures showing outstanding warrants and the total Indebtedness with the figures of receipts will bfi made up by Capt Farley as soon as he can get the statistics and this re port will be submitted to the Gover nor Some steps for relief will then be taken o John Wood Wants To Succeed Hedden WOULD BE STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF PRINTINGG A LEWIS APPLICANT John Wood of Mt Sterling was hero to see Gov Willson about the appointment of a new superintendent of printing it being understood gen rally that J W Hedden who now holds the position is to resign This Is one office which is still filled by a Democrat but efforts are now being trade to get Mr Hedden out so that the can go to a Republican and it nowteoks as if the job will be filled by a Republican soon Mr Wood probably will be appointed In a few lays although nothing definite has been decided upon Mr Wood asked the Governor to hurry things up a little as he is anxious to have it settled- It is understood that Mr Hedden will resign the place if Mr Wood is to be appointed as his successor but that If any other man is to get the place Mr Hedden will hold on and the Republicans will have to remove him They claim that this can be done but the Pemocrats think that nothing cane done as there Is no good reason for Mr Heddens removal no cause for complaint about his management of the office existing Mr Wood and Mr Hedden were partners In a news paper for seven years and are good friends For this reason Mr Hedden u who has good things in sight that willi pay him better than the position ofi superintendent of printing is willing to get out of the way of Mr Wood o No enterprising printer will be content with merely keeping up to the times Those who are most success ful strive to reap ahead ot the pro cession I t Injuries When McKinley Was Killed ALBERT GALLAHER DIES IN CHICAGO AFTER MANY MONTHS OF SUFFERING Albert Gallaher for many years In the secret service of the United States and one of those detailed as the personal guard of the late President Mj Kinley at the time of his assass tIon died at Chicago Tuesday Gallaher who seized the wrist gosz after the fatal shot was fire wrenched the weapon from his hriu Gallaher was mistaken by the crowd for the assassin and was set upon and beaten and to this fact according the attending physician Gallahers death was indirectly due An affection of the liver developed from injuries which he sustained at that time After his experience at Buffalo Gal laher was under a physicians care for a time but the extent of his in juries was not then realized He was later transferred from Chicago to St Paul Minn where he became and unfitted for duty last October He was attended in Chicago recently by Drs C P Stringfleld and C A Storey The former said today that the immediate cause of his death was cancer of the liver and that in all probability It was the result of the rough handling received at the hands of the crowd following the shooting in Buffalo Dr Strlngfields opinion was indorsed by Capt T I Porter In charge of the Chicago District of the Federal Secret Service under whom Gallaher worked Gallaher was one of the men appoint ed to guard the person of Count Witte of Russia at the treaty conference between representatives of Japan and Russia at Portsmouth N H and was given a watch and chain by the Russian nobleman in token of appreciation of his services o Democrats Go Out To Provide Places WILLIAM OCONNELL AND MISS MAY ROBARDS

t14 Has Greatest Respect For t The Planters of Kentucky A WORD OF CRITICISM OF THEM INP Wlllson was shown the Ken tucky State Journal of June 24 credit t ing the Winchester Democrat with a reprint of what purported to be an Interview with him printed In the Cln clnnatl Enquirer of JUne 14 on What Gov Wlllson Says and Thinks of the t jl Tobacco Growers of Kentucky The I article has been given wide publical s i tloh In the country papers and the to bacco periodicals and was evidently intended to injure Gov Willson with- the tobacco growers It was the first tore that the Governors attention had it been called to the item as he had r been absent from the Capital for two weeks After its perusal he gave out g the following statement tThe interview published under e e headlines What Governor Willson Says nnd Thinks of the Tobacco Growers of Kentucky is not about the growers but about the laborers Some Weeks ago at the Conference of Gov hfa brief verbal interview on the to bacco situation with the understand that it was to be submitted before ipublication and Mr Morrows recol r lection of It was submitted and while in part approved was very extensively corrected because Mr Morrow while writing in a friendly spirit had made v quite a long story on a short talk and a large part of the story was serious iiy inconsistent with the Governor a Buticorrected paper was unavoidably delayed so that the orig r Inal was published without the f irections v Governor Willson has not said to any one that most of the tobacco lab ie orers are white his impression has pj been that they were not He has nev y er said that they generally live h hutsi His belief Is that such a state fment Is absurdly untrue He has not V said and does not believe that the compel their women and children to I go into the fields He has never v said and does not believe that the the tobacco growers are as a rule and violent sfiti Governor has uttered no llbe- on them or any class of Kentucky peo ti Ple He believes that the raisers of L tobacco in Kentucky are like other v people In Kentucky as a rule honest i r and good citizens and the Governor Y is not grossly Ignorant of this fact nor has he misrepresented them The Governor honors and loves the V people of Kentucky earnestly feels his debt ol gratitude to them and is work ing with no personal end but to fry to them faithful service and pay I1ulIP unfailing honor and praise He r I has no word of reproach or unfriend liness for the tobacco growers or lab orers He has opposed the power of the State to the violence of a compar atively small number of men who have banded together to intimidate others and Injure them and their property professedly in the interest of tobacco men but undoubtedly to the great hurt of all tobacco growers and work ers and there will be no thought of change or letting up in the earnest maintenance of law and order and lib erty under the law Instead of abusing the good name of the tobacco men of Kentucky the Governor has made It his policy gen erally to refuse to talk for publication on Kentucky troubles holding firmly to the policy of helping the officers of the law to suppress the troubles with necessary force and not by abuse or scolding published or un published o Family Fight May End Lives Of Two JARVEY BROCK SHOOTS FATHER INLAWSIX TIMESWOUNDS WILL BE FATAL As a result of a family fight at the home of

Moment rf CAPT JACKSON MORRIS STAYS RODENT AND DOGIS RE GRETFUL Think of killing rats in the Governors reception room The idea strikes the general public as being out of the question but they dont 4t know the old State House which is koverrun with rodents Capt Jackson Morris actually killed a goodsized rat In his desk in the Governors re r ception room Thursday afternoon Capt Morris used a ruler to destroy the animal which has made its home In his desk for some time The fa- ctEthat Billy was not there at the time was deeply deplored by everybody Billy is a fox terrier Billy is well known at the State House where he spends most of his leisure hunting for rats which ho never catches The trouble is not with Billy as Billy is an expert rat catcher and is to relentless foe of rats but there arc too many things under which the rats can go but under which Billy can not The rats get away for this reason Billy has smelled rats in the Gover hors office for some time but has never had a glimpse of them and ho has become discouraged He still gets excited when he smells rats but does not really expect them to como out and bo lulled So on Thursday when ho smelled a rat in tho drawer of the desk pre sided over by Capt Morris Billy was merely mildly excited Billy knew that the rat would stay in the desk and that ho would not have any chtnce to kill It but he told the men In tho office that tho rat was there and they could get it out if they would Nobody paid any attention to Billys remarks on the subject of rats for he has talked about them too much Capt Morris was not there at the time being outsido in search of ills dinner When ho returned the others told him Billy had shown signs Of having discovered a rat in the drawer of tho desk Billy by that limo had gono on about other husi noss Capt Morris decided to inves i1tigato and opened one of the drawers The rat was there and made a break for liberty but Capt MorlB was too quick for tho rodent Jtni killed it with a ruler Then he Carpets wished he had waited for Billy as everybody was anxious to see Bmy kill a rat Billy does not know wha he missed but he will be disap pointed when he learns of the adver ture o Kentucky

counties lying along Ohio River Last winter talk of a oubled or even quadrupled acreage was indulged in but all of those prog lostlcations have come to naught and It appears that the largest part of In lianas 1908 tobacco crop was raised round the firesides and by the itoves in the village stores last winter There really has not been a good obacco season this spring and plants have not been any too plentiful or- of very good quality Indiana has suffered from night riders and really wes the failure to raise a larger crop to the unfavorable natural conditions of and the lack of inclination on the part of their owners Indirectly probably this lack of inclination is in a measure due to the apprehension re garding the opposition the raising of a crop might arouse Tobaco plant beds have been sown in the Indiana hills in plain view from the Kentucky sIde yet the growers of these plants have not been molested and it seems mprobable that they will beWa saw Independent o Acts Of 1908 Nearly

Frankfort Delegates Go To Big Convention GOOD SEATS FOR THE KENTUCKIAN Frankforts representatives at the big Democratic gathering in Denve left Frankfort Friday morning and left Louisville that night so that they cnn be on the ground early to see Bryan nominated They went with hopeful feeling They are all united now but as Mr Dooley says they may befriends going out and fight after they get there be friends out there and fight on the way back At any rate Mr Bryan believes he is going to win Percy Haly said before he left that he had information from a man who had talked to Bryan and Bryan was absolutely confident of his election this fall The following went from here to Denver Gov J C W Beckham and Senator Thomas H Paynter delegate from the State at large Percy Haly who turned down a chance to go wit a millionaire in a private car in order to go with his friends from Kentucky Judge Robert L Stout George Shaw and Field McLeod The Committee err Arrangements completed its work allotting the con vention seats Mr Woodson the Democratic National Committeeman from Kentucky chose for the twenty eight Kentucky delegates a position in the center of the auditorium inline dlately in

have been in completion over a week were added to today by the- placing of a large crepedraped por trait of Grover Cleveland Washington Jefferson Jackson and Cleveland are the four Democrats who are to tool upon the proceedings Clevelands likeness was placed in the convention hall at the request of Mr Dahlman- of Nebraska Its a secret but when Bryan is nom- Inated there is to drop down from tb
