be paid The Governor said that the law did not allow the money to be used in that way and it had been paid without authority He refused to accept Judge Edelens opinion saying that he placed a

explanation writes a staff correspondent William Jennings Bryan has built a thorough ly uptodate city residence In the midst of 160 acres of land It is sur potatoesrt house there Is a wide stretch of blue- grassf large enough to make two or three good sized city homes look lost in It There Is a windmill a barn arbors and outhouses of all kinds with every conceivable piece of modern farm machinery extant housed about the place There are also gardens j citified plants running vines and shrubbery and song birds in great isInot run to make money and there fore It is not a farm In tjie common acceptation of that term even though It qualified under the above general description of Its contents More truly the Bryan farm Is the abiding place of a busy man who delights greatly In great and quiet- Falrvlew lies on a beautiful knoll overlooking the Antelope valley two miles east of Lincoln The spot on which the house now stands was part of the original tract of live acres which Mr Bryan bought In 1893 At that time the plot was bare of trees To day several small trees planted by Mr Bryan give a background to the house and nothing more In 1897 Mr Bryan added to his small holding by tho purchase of twenty acres more ground By 1902 the farm had attain ed a size of thirtyfive acres and since then Mr Bryan has increased It to 160 acres ninetytwo of which are un r der cultivation The present home was built In 1903 From the outset Mr Bryan had his own views about the running of a farm Since then the views of the en tire Bryan family about the place have changed somewhat but they are still individual and Individually collective Interesting study nrDivides Work With Wife Fairview has never had a boss Nor has It ever been entirely a co opera tive community Naturally the sex of the occupants has asserted itself in their respective spheres as commonly understood Mr Bryan Is the recog Hued head of the household and the farm Mrs Bryan has always run the house Both are managed with a tent dency toward decentralization of su preme authority and strange to say both ends of the farm have been a great success under this system The Bryan family and the Bryan farm are managed on a conference basis All through his public life Mr Bryan has made a confidant of his wife She has been with him on most of his notable campaign tours studled law with him when he was in college attended to most of his correspond ence In the early days of his career and in fact was his righthandman if such an appellation can be attrib uted to an Intellgent capable womanly helpmate of a manly man Mr Bryan now holds conferences Theyrnor by any other preliminary They occur at the most unexpected timesk and In the most unexpected places The barn pigsty or the green lawn is equally appropriate for theseun derstandings With the range of the farm before them Mr Bryan offers suggestions asI to the rotation of crops or the use of this or that parcel of land The hired men are as free to offer suggestions as hOtA conclusion Is reached and that settles the matter for a whole year The hired men mostly in their Sown time and in their own way see that the understandings are carried out They are Industrious men and do their work well Without the incen Live ot moneymaking there Is continual peace throughout the whole place Thoie is no blow or bluster no fretting 01 fuming One of the main features of the Bryan home Is the immense closed porch This porch is the product of neces sHy because of Nebraskas winds but it Is a real Institution From the out withrfifteen white framed windows

those corn prehcnslve smiles made possible by n large mouth Mr Bryan has one o f the most expressive mouths In existence Thlr feet Is admitted even by the Republicans and concurred in by most Democrats It can say anythin q and yet make no audible sound but when It Hpoaks Its mobility Is equally apparent From the face downward Mr Bryan If one of the plainest o men He still wears the lowcut col lar and the Bryan stringbow tie without which he never again can hi complete to his followers His clothes are neat and clean The creases In them are not tailormade but home made They fit the contour of Mr Bryans kneejoints better when J1e sits down His shoes are just as dusty as yours which is not very dusty with a Nebraska zephyr cleaning then for vcu and an alfalfa field handy Proud of His Home Mr Bryan loves his farm home and i Intensely proud of It Nobody who sees it can blame him If he knows you well enough he will say to you ir a matter of fact way which Illy con coals his Just pride Come this way with me- From a compact and comparatively unnlorned reception hall Mr Bryan leads his guest into his library which is almost severe In its appointments From the library you walk into the Or lent Except for the American car pet wall paper and a few pieces of furniture Mr and Mrs Bryan have filled this room with the gifts they received on their trip about the world The Bryan dining room is down stairs It is In Blemish oak from the wainscoting to the ceiling The woodwork and furniture can hardly be told apart so complete Is the matching All of the furniture Is highly carved and ecstatic reference to Its high quality brought from Mr Bryan the comment It is from Chicago To Mr Bryan Fairview has no price He probably knows exactly what he has put Into It notwithstanding the fact that some people think he has no business ability or acumen What he could get out of It does not interest him except when put In terms of enjoyment living and working Most of Mr Bryans personal wealth centers in Fairview As a money maker his newspaper probably Is his best invest meat Taken by itself however Fairview would be a genuine bargain at 75000 0LEGAL FISHING As Practiced By Judges Of Court of Appeals JUDGE HAZELRIGG PLAYS TRICK ON JUDGES PRYOR SETI TLE AND NUNN Fishing Is a pastime which appeals especially to the legal mind or the mind of any man who works with his brain It is said and the fact that nearly every Judge of the Court of Appeals Is an earnest and ardent fishI erman seems to bear this out Each judge has his own method of fishing and his own favorite spot Judge Set tIe one of the associate justices of the court was talking fishing the other day and told the following story of how the court once went fishing rn ElkhornWe out early In the morning and divided our forces With me were Judge Pryor and Judge Nunn and Judge Hazelrigg Judge ORear md one or two others went in another diretion up the creek from us We fished along all morning and did not jet a bite Not a fish did we catch and we were discouraged Just before noon a native showed up with a pretty string of fish He had about fifteen fine ones and we opened negotiations for the purchase of those fish We did not want to go back without a fish and have the others laugh at us so wo bought the string from the native paying him 2 for the bunch Judge Pryor mode the man agree to back up any statement that he made concerning the fish and how they had been caught and the mm agreed We reached the camp firM cleaned the fish and while they were frylm and the savory odor was floating in the breezes Judge Hazelrigg and hli party came up They expressed sur prise that we had lion such good luck Yes we had pretty fair luck salt Judge Pryor but of course one has to be skillful to really catch fish t Is not all luck but requires science- How ninny lid you all catch Judge Hazelrigg admitted that the had no luck at all and had come bac emptyhanded Judge Pryor then wei to tel how each of the4feh hafll Hgh giving a graphic descrlpH w h had hauled in the larg e anti how Judge Settle himself had hnulei In ten He said Judge Nunn had beet 0thSIJudge Hazelrigg and the other let us go along until we had fully committed ouselves and had strung out long talks about our fishing skill when Judge Hazelrigg spoke ui and said You are awful liars Now that man with that string of fish passeli setfus those fish But I said to the oth ers No we wont buy them Let hiti go on down stream and he will pas Settle Nunn and Pryor and they will buy the fish and We wljl have then for dinner without having to pay for them That ended our fish tales said Judge Settle Judge Lassing now has a different fishIbut he Is too active and too much ot the go all the time to sit down anti watt for one of them to swallow a hook so he adopts a sure and safg plan He described it the other day When I go fishing I hire a man tc use a seine and pay him so much c haul with the understanding that he can have such fish as I dont want He makes a few drags through the river and gets plenty of fish and I pick out those I want and put them in a crib In the river and when I want fish for supper I go down to the crib and pick out what I want That beats the hook and line all hollow o ASK REQUISITIONS For Return Of Taylor And Finley From Indiana CASES WILL BE CALLED AT NEXT TERM OF COURTPARDONSE- XPECTED FOR BOTH Requisitions for W S Taylor and Charles Finley will be requested of Gov WIllson when the next term of the Franklin Circuit Court convenes and it Is not improbable that the Governor will Issue pardons to both men and allow them to come back tc Kentucky The cases against Finley and Taylor will be called at the next regular term of this court and every effort will be made to get the fugitives back for trial As Governor Willson has said that he believes Youtsey alone is responsible for the murder of William Goebel it is believed that the Governor would not permit the State to go to the expense of a trial of the two men but would Issue pardons to last step that can be taken in againstIJudge J S Morris convened his spe cial term of the Scott Circuit Court to call the Powers case

delegation gave aState Kentuckys sharp rebuke to Mayo Mayo in the Credentials Committee had cast his vote as representative of Kentucky for the seating of National Committeeman Guffey of Pennsylvania

deafening cheers on the part of tine Bryanmad assembly Mayo was not in the convention hall and neither was Senator Paynter who was said to be in sympathy with Mayo Gov Beckham was absent In the

Denver locating the State delegates He Instantly took a poll of them and announced that with the possible exception of United States Senator T H Paynter all Kentucky was demanding that the vote of Mayo be reversed Shock for Leaders To James and Col W B Haldeman the action of Mayo came as a direct shock for they had not believed tha the Eastern Kentucky millionaire in spite of his friendship for

the delegation on Monday had requested that Mayo be awarded unanimously the credential place a preconceived plan was carried through The delegates declare that Mayo well knew that Kentucky above all States In the Union was loyal to Bryan and that In voting for GUffey Mayo had not been a faithful representative of the State During the remarkable Bryan dem onstratlon Ollie James started the march

BECAUSE HE VETOED BILL RAIS ING STANDARD OF LAWYERS lllsons action In vetoing the viding a new system for ad ton of applicants for license to practice law was condemned by the State Bar Association at the annual meeting in Louisville The bill known as the MilliKfn bill provided that the Court of Appeals should have control of the admission of candi C dates to the bar and should lay down the qualifications The bar associa toll was in sealou three days this C most Important paper submitted at the present meeting was that of the Hon J A Sullivan of Rich aloud in which he took exception to the action of Governor Willson In ve tong tho bill to raibu ihe standard of admission to the bar passed at the last Legislature The report was sub mitted by 31r Sullivan as chairman of the Committee on Legal Education and Admission to the Bar- The report deals exhaustively with the subject and contains the astound ing statement that Kentucky is one of the few States wheien no previous study la a requisite to an application for admission to UtE tar With reference to the action of Gov Willson in otomg the MllliUen Burnum bill passed by both houses raising the standard for admission to the liar Mr Sullivan sad To the cmazement cl Xour com mitee and the profession at large on March 19 JU08 and after the adjournment of the General Assembly our worthy Governor vetoed the bill without having given any notice to tho introducers of the bill in the Rhine and Senate to your commit tee or to this association We hav the kindliest feelings for the Gover nor personally and respect for hl ability and professional standing bu your committee In making a true report must say that iu our Judgment the vrto was hasty lladvised and arose front a mhumdorprindlng of the purposes and lirovislons of the bill The reasons given by the Governor for vetoing the bill are twofold First that thou Is no necessity for the bill or for raising the standard of admission to the bar in Kentucky On this point the Governor said I do not believe that many of the instances of misconduct on the part of lawyers arise from those who wouli be excluded by this kind of examina tion The incompetent are rapidly sifted out anyhow and this measure does not seem so necessary as to Justify the creation of another office with annual expenses thlns judgment of both houses of the Genera Assembly which passed tho bill i recommendations of overwhelmingly an sometimes unanimously expressed at organerecomm National Bar Asso ciation and the legislative enactments of every State and Territory in the American Union excepting six The second reason assigned for the veto is that It creates three new of 200ea year each The Governor overlooked the fact that the bill expressly provided In section 5 that each applicant at the time of applying for examination aka pay a fee of 10 This fund would fill- more than have paid the salaries and expenses under this bill eYour committee is therefore com pelted to believe and to report that he Governor had given this bill fun consideration or had in his possession fuller information of the need and effect of the MlllikenBurnam bf Ild and the enactment of such legislation In other States and Territories th he would not by executive veto ha nullified the efforts of years of the Kentucky Bar Association of which ho Is so prominent and worthy a men her and prevented the enactment of a law so much needed for tho protection of the public as well as tho pro fession itself In concluding the report urges that the association continue with increas ed vigor the efforts to have such laws enacted and urges that no applicant be eligible to stand examination for admission to the bar unless a grad unto of a reputable college or univer ally or of a first class county high school to become effective after July 1 1911 at which time county high schools will have been established In every county one year TIME TABLE L N R R CO Frtnkfort Ky May 13 1908 Trains East Bound No

throw some light on the reason for this failure r to get business The man step ped into the telephone office to pay his bill He had a 5 note and could mot pay his bill because the tele phone manager could not change the five dollars The same man then went to the laundry to pay his bill there so he could have the laundry sent home The laundry has a rule v that all payments must be made In advance and the only way to get the laundry is to pay for it in advance The man in charge of the laundry fice was unable to tell the customer the amount of his bill and he had to make three trips before he could pay for the laundry and have it delivered Tho same man went Into a cigar store and was unable to buy a cigar be cause the proprietor was unable to change a dollar In no other city in the country isI which will not allowi there a laundry a man to pay by the month provided ihls credit is known to be good The r Frankfort laundries have this rule and the majority of the men in the city send their laundry to Dayton 0 as they do not care to be worried by tt 5S having to chase around to the laun dry office to pay the bill and then be told that the amount of it is not known A good deal of the time it is not the fault of the Frankfort people that they do not deal with Frankfort merchants The convention at Denver did as everybody knew it would do It nom l inated Bryan on the first ballot with great enthusiasm and the othernames which were presented were put be F fore the convention merely to com trpllment the two men mentioned Bryan should have been nominated He was the strongest candidate No other man could have polled the v strength that he could and no other man could have held together the var- Iousi factions ofwhat once was and which again will be the Democratic party It was Bryan or nobody in the minds of too many people who have followed Bryan for years and who would follow nobody else The way in which Bryan was nominated augers well for success at the polls The fighting which was done beforehand is better than no fight for kDemocrats always work better after they have had a little fight in the con- ventiont which names the candidates Now if the nominee can be taught a little caution and to keep his mouth shut until the voting is done the Democrats are fairly certain of win- ningtf the election and beating Taft o r Frankfort was one of the few cities In the State where fireworks were allowed on the Fourth the city authorities barring them in nearly everyplace I even the smaller towns As a result of the celebration of the day 1 here several persons will go

He stood lCIa should be read by everybody at least once a montbIt would make men and women of us and the world would be a better place in which to live The whole essay teems with Indepen dence and would free the world from senseless convention In this day of railroad agitation one would think the railroads would adopt a policy of conciliation Instead of an tagonism and would try to win the people to their side of the question which means so much to them But they dont At least in the South they dont Some railroads have seen that it pays to be courteous and have forced their employes to treat the passengers with patience and conside ration It does pay and as an in stance of it one finds that the Penn sylvania railroad gets the passenger traffic for this reason largely The head of that system requires conduc tors porters and everybody to be po lite and unfailingly courteous Without competition in the main and with their passengers forced to travel over their lines or stay at home the Southern railroads are in dependent and the trainmen usually uncivil A notable instance is the dining car service on the Queen Crescent and one conductor in particular This conductor proceeds on the theory that the passengers must eat in his car or go hungry and it is not necessary to treat them with anymore consideration than if they were day laborers being fed in a lumber camp One goes into the dining car and finds a seat the best one can the conductor and the waiter paying no attention to one at all until after one has been seated and then the conductor finds another seat and insists upon the passenger taking that one This conductor also talks to the pas sengers like they were servants and directs that they do thus and so as though he was supreme commander tf- r e of the universe and his orders must be obeyed A restaurant run on tthe same plan would have no diners within two weeks but the Q 0 dining car officials probably go on the theory that the passengers being hungry they will eat whether they are treated well or not It is a bad theory There are other roads which may be user and there are passengers making short runs who can wait until Lexington or Cincinnati Is reached before eating that they may eat in comfor and be treated decently The people rule i be doubted and it may sel tho leaders of one or the other party are really In control but they are not The people actually control this coup try and the people have been against the railroads because the railroads have been against the people appar ently What little consideration the traveling public receives Is extended because railroad commissions have re quired it But for the railroad commissions passengers would ride In boxcars and would get nothing but sults for their money All this rail road agitation is due in a large meas ure to the fact that when a man of small proportions Is clothed with authority and a uniform he gets it into his head that he Is the power behind the throne and suffers from enlargement of the cranium to such an ex tent that he becomes a tyrant Another thing that is responsible for the bad treatment received by pas sengers is the proneness of the Amer ican public to submit to inconvenience discomfort and discourtesy without protest The average person travel ing will stand almpst anything and even if he does kick he kicks In a futile sort of n way where it is Inef fective Instead of reporting to the head of the department Involved the traveler kicks to his fellow passengers or to the man who has offended He promises to report the matter to the governing authority but by the next morning he has forgotten tote Incident and lets It go In a dining car there Is a printed notice on the menu that any Inattention is to be reported to the superintendent of dining cars but the passenger usually thinks It is too much trouble or he does not want any one to lose his job so he does not report and the offending official goes on of fending until he becomes arrogant and insufferable and then the proper offi cial hears of It and a new Job must be secured Why did the fly fly The conven tional answer to this absurd conundrum is because the spider spied her That Is Incorrect The fly flew just because he was a fly Having wings he flies He has no motive or air or object in flying He just flies Then having legs he walks Again he has no purpose in walking In fact the fly is the one thing In the world that Is without a definite purpose In life The mosquito is a pest and a nuisance but he does not bite as the fly lies The mosquito has a purpose in his existence and when a mosquito slights on a person It Is with the de sire for blood which is its food But the fly lights on a person just because he has nothing to gain from being on a person and surely derives no gain or enjoyment from meandering over a persons nose or toes A fly is just utterly and absolutely sense less arid altogether frivolous The fly serves only one purposethe fly an irritant and that is all The fly lis supposed to be a scavenger but recent science has found that the fly serves no such purpose and Is not only useless as a disposer of filth buts even a menace to life by reason of his habits and germ carrying propen sities The Egyptians were punished with a plague of flies and perhaps that is where the fly of today comes from for he certainly is a plague and the only thing he does is to make human beings learn patience This year for some reason there ire millions of flies everywhere Last mmmer the flies were scarce but his year they have made up for lost time and there is an overproduction The flies swarm and buzz and walkabout and crawl over suffering human- Ity until that man especially if he be midheaded who can save his temper and be a

Factory To Close CANNOT DO BUSINESS WITH THE CROP SELLING AT PRESENT EQUITY RATE The Kentucky Leaf Tobacco Com pany which has been running a fac tory in Lexington employing about fif teen hands for several years closed down this week and will retire from business on account of the high prices which are asked for pooled tobacco of the Burley Society which is now the only available supply on the market James Slade manager of the com pany states that on account of the high prices they were compelled to pay for the raw product the company has been losing money for several months on its output and that it is therefore decided to abandon the bus iness and close up the factory The American Tobacco Factory and the big independent companies can buy a large stock of tobacco and hold it until it is needed said Mr Slade but we little fellows have to buy stock in small quantities as it Is required and as most of the tobacco now offered by the Burley Tobacco Society is of high grade the prices are too high for us to pay and man ufacture our product at a profit A number of the little fellows all over the country will probably drop out as we have done o Taft Writes To Capitol Taft Club The

creole have been killed during tht last few days in some mysterious manner and way and the fishermen of whom Frankfort has a large number are stirring things up in an effort to find out what has caused the destruc tion For miles the banks of Elk horn are strewn with fish and snakes and turtles all dead and decaying and in several places where the backwater forms an eddy fish fill the water so thickly that they reach clear to the bottom of the creek In front of Col James Andrew Scotts camp two wag on loads of fish were lodged in an eddy and he had men with rakes en gaged in shoving them out into the current so that the decaying bodies would be carried off Much speculation is being indulged in as to the cause of the sudden death of the fish and distilleries and oil re fineries are being held responsible It is said by fishermen that the fish seem ed to have been killed suddenly dur ing the last rise hen there was a heavy rain just at the forks of the Elkhorn As the rise went down the creek it left in its wake thousand of dead fish and even the snakes and turtles were killed The sheriff of the county Hleatt has offered a reward for information which will lead to the solution of the question of what has caused the fish to die If it is found that a distillery or oil refinery has caused the destruction of the fish the guilty parties will be indicted and an effort made to convict

chineryIt t said that when Gilbert was brought to the penitentiary he did not know how to do anything but shoot and make moonshine whisky HP was an adept at that and was one of the best rifle and

Jury which Investi gated the mysterious murder of Mrs Ada Reichers of Fort Worth Tex whose brains were battered out sometime last Monday in a cottage where she dwelt with her three young children returned a verdict today that she came to her death at the hands of A M Bannister and that the crime was unjustifiable says a Hot Springs dispatch to the Courier Journal Bannister Is an itinerant pianotun er had been there about a month and boarded next door to Mrs Reich ers On the day of the murder Ban nistor took the two little boys and 9yearold daughter of the murdered woman to a suburban park where he deserted the boys They miraculously wandered back home and being un able to gain admission were taken care of over night by a neighbor- A witness testified at the hearing that he met Bannister and the little girl in Little Rock Tuesday night and aided the former to pawn a ring for 20 The ring was introduced at the inquest and identified as having be longed to the deceased Gov Pindall tonight offered 250 reo ward for the capture of the murderer The husband of the dead woman and her father J N Young of Terre l Tex arrived today The former in an interview said When they find R G Wade the first husband of Mrs Reichers between here and the swamps of Alabama they will have found the man who murdered my wife It is known that Wade and Bannister were boyhood friends Documents in possession of the coroner indicate Mrs Reichers and her husband who has the contract for the brick work on the new capitol at Frankfort Ky had been Involved in domestic troubles Developments which

killedNO CORNER o Secured By Trust In Burley Tobacco INDEPENDENTS IN JUST AS GOOD SHAPE AS AMERICANHAVE- HAD FAIR CHANCE The presence of independent tobac co manufacturers and buyers in Lexington during the laSt few days has led to gossip that the Independents are In danger of being embarrassed by difficulty in securing the cheaper grades of burley tobacco The success of the nocrop move ment has made an active demand and high prices for the tobacco now available but the independents are probably in as good condition with respect to stocks of raw material as the trust While much of the cheap 1906 to bacco has been disposed of the entire 1907 pooled crop of more than 100000 hogsheads has not been marketed The Burley Tobacco Society holds more than 30000 hogsheads of the 190G crop of grades Including the 16 cent quality and less If the independents are actually short of stock they will probably be able to secure everything they want if they will pay the price The tobacco sold on the breaks last winter was purchased largely by the American Tobacco Company The trust bought practically all of the cheaper grades The recent large sales made by the Burley Tobacco Society were of the cheaper grades These sales were made to brokers and pre sumably the Independents have the same chance at this tobacco as the trust and if all of the cheap leaf re cently sold by the Burley Society is destined for the trust it does not mean that the independents can not secure the necessary stock T NIEPAcIVEg taditions were jMrer better nor will my be as good in next ten years for t Economical

Wrong Dowif The Geo Speer Claims etRace Won IS A CANDIDATE fORSECRETAR Special Correspondence Louisville Ky July DYou know It hurts me way down in my heart to find fault with the Louisville Republicans But something looks rather bad at the City Hall this week It grows out of a contract for blocks for stone streets According to the bids granite blocks of certain dimensions were to be furnished the city and a number of bids were made for granite answering these specifications The bid of a southern firm was accepted the pay to be made on the basis of first class selected blocks When thes blocks were delivered and while they were being laid It was found that the city had received a job lot but when the bills were presented for payment the bills were made out on the basis of selected blocks The members of the Board of Public Works knew that the blocks were not according to specifications A representative of the firm which furnished the blocks to Louisville admitted that they wer not according to specifications Yet the company sent in the bill for lected blocks and the Board of Public Works Insisted on paying the bill on that basis Such blocks as the city got could have been secured at a saving of at least 8000 As I say I dont like to find faul with the Louisville Republicans but I would like to ask what our Republican friends would say If a similar condition had arisen while the Democrats were in control down here As Togo would say I Inquire to know 0Bob Phillips is an avowed candidati for the office of Secretary of the Democratic State Committee It has
