Him I 1 fAs Manager Of The Fight In Kentucky WATTERSON WILL MEET NOMINEE Special Correspondence Louisville Ky July 24It wouldnt Surprise me to see the Hon Ben Johnson named as chairman of the Democratic Campaign Committee for Kentucky Mr Johnson has long been known as a shrewd organizer an astute politician and a resourceful manager a combination of qualifica tlons which In themselves woulJ recommend him for such a position It is said that Congressman Ollie James suggested Mr Johnson to William J Bryan as a suitable man to lead the fight In Kentucky and that the suggestion was regarded as a capital one both by Mr Bryan and Henry Watterson who Is very much in Mr Bryans confidence It Is understood that Mr Johnson while not willing to make a fight for the place at the head of the campaign committee would regard his selection as a great honor and would give the duties of the position his whole at tention until the November election It is believed moreover that the fact th tMr Bryan and Mr Watterson both think well of Mr Johnson as chairman of the committee will have great weight with the committee and that they will see the wisdom of see lecting Mr Johnson for the position Mr Bryan knows Mr Johnson per sonally and I have heard he Is very anxious to have him elected chairman Of course neither Mr Bryan nor Mr Watterson would assume to dictate who should be selected as chairman and the committeemen are well aware sugIhorse at the convention which named the committee it is believed the c members will fall very readily lath life Henry Watterson has gone to Chicago to meet WJ Bryan for a conference upon the general conduct of the coming campaign Mr Bryan goes to Chicago to be present at a meeting of the national committee men tomorrow and Invited Mr Wat terson to run up for the day that they might exchange notes and map out the conduct of affairs with the Na tional Committee present Im going to get back to granite blocks Im not doing this because Im hardheaded but because granite blocks promise to b6 the undoing of the present Republican administra tion You will remember that I called attention to the granite con tract contract in Louisville a few weeks ago and said that something would probably happen It did The members of the Republican Board of Works who were out of town when the blow off came hastened back to- straighten out the muddle They found teat the contractor for whom they had been the apologists had een hauled into court on the charge of trying to bribe one of the alder men andU happened to be the alder man who had been making trouble both for the cantractor and the fofoard In a long statement given out by the board they said that they adItoo much That statement was hardly cold before the board an bounced that they would proceed with tho worlc of laying block streets b- utirould require a strict adherence to r 11rt Jf rj the specifications One of the other funny things in the statement was the admission by the board that they didnt know anything about the duties they were appointed to per orm Now isnt that a likely bunch of office holders and public servants appointed to safeguard the interests of the city They are reform Repub Beans too try Between us now what do you think of a large healthy 300 pound man like Taft candidate of a trust boasted party running up to Oyster Bay with his speech in his pocket to ask another man whether he will be permitted to deliver it Wouldnt it be hhhhhorrlble if Teddy told him he didnt like the speech and ordered him to write another If Taft should be elected should mind you7 how do you think he would be able to get along while Mr Roosevelt was chasing In Africa I inquire to know- INSIDER o Building On Boom All Over The City CONTRACTS ALREADY LET FOR THREE

Frankfort which is usually at the boiling point or near it is beginning to heat up already and there Is good prospect that the boiling point will soon be reached Judge James Polsgrove Is going to start the ball rolling good and proper by his announcement as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Commonwealths attorney in this district to succeed Col Robert Franklin The latter is a candidate too but has not officially announced yet He probably will announce now that Judge Polsgrove is out as a can didate Then the race for the Legis lature is attracting attention and James Buford has announced Others may come in to make things lively Then there is the congressional race with a sharp fight between Campbell Cantrill and the present Congress man W P KImball- R C Hieatt Is the first to announce for county judge but it is expected that there will be other camdidates before the flag falls on the race Mr Hieatt Is now county sheriff and has made a good one He has a large number of friends In the county and has his fences well laid so that he will be a hard man to beat nomatter who runs against him His work as sheriff of the county has been very satisfactory to the people of the people of the county and Mr Hieatt has a large personal following The others who have had their eyes on the sheriffs place have hesitated about entering the ring against Mr Hieatt and it may be that he will not have any opposition for the place The race for Commonwealths At torney In this district promises to be exciting Both candidates being from the same county and both being strong men who are popular makes the race peculiarly interesting and causes complications which will tend for excitement Mr Franklin and Judge Polsgrove are both well known men Both have strong backing and both will put up a good fight This county will be the battleground as both candidates live here but either can win without this county although each will try to it How the nomination for Common wealths Attorney will be made has not been determined but It Is proba ble that there will be a convention with mass county conventions in the counties composing the district This will be settled by the district com mittee at some time in the future The election being a year off there is plenty of time and things starting off this early show that the race will be good and hot before it is over Judge Polsgrove said that he would not have announced this early and would have preferred to wait un til after the election but Mr Franklin was openly a candidate and he thought it just as well to get Into the game too In making his announcement Judge Polsgrove said- Belieying it ta be the duty of every Democrat to put the Interests of his party about self and to work for the success of the Democratic ticket in November It was my perI sonal wish and my intention not to make any formal announcement ot ny candidacy until after the Presi dential election but as it has been stated in some parts of the district that there was but onto candidate and Intimated that there would be t but one I propose now to set the question at rest and to remove any doubt that may exist in regard to it I shall miljg the race In jM this Announcement I desire Rhat as the plea ior an endorsJJ c rightly belongs toione at this time I feel that I am not un justly interferng with the aspirations of any one else I am yielding to what I hope may be deemed a lauda ble ambition to go a step higher hav ing been encouraged so to do by the solicitations of my fr ends For my qualifications as well as my political and official records I refer the voters of the district to the bar and the people of my home county o KUKLUX BAND IN THIS COUNTY The attention of County Judge James P ls rove has been called to what MpjjM been an attempted raid by H band in Franklin county se H nights ago State troops weJ Hit to guard the house of the ms Kho was threatened and they saw everal men about the house challenging one of them who entered the yard Nothing was done by the raiders but an investigation will be conducted by the county offi cials A man named Cook who conducts a general store in this county near the Shelby county line In what Is known as the Jacksonville neighbor hood went to Adjutant General P P Johnston and requested that soldiers be sent to protect him Cook said that he had reason to believe that a crowd of men would try and do him Injury that night General Johnston sent three men to Cooks house and they stood guard all night About mid night several men were seen near the house but they did nothing One man walked Into the yard and was halted by the soldierse He was indignant that he had been stopped and Insisted that he was doing nothing He was allowed to go on his way as there was nothing against him It may have been that a body of men had planned to whip or duck Cook although It Is not known why they should desire to do him Injury unless it was that he had talked unwisely o Frankfort Man In Money At Lexington JOHN MASTIN FINISHES SECOND IN HANDICAP TRAP SHOOT The largest crowd of spectators and the greatest number of gunners on the firing line in the history of the Fay ette Gun Club were present yester day afternoon at grounds to witness and to enter the contest for the double trophy shoot says the Lexington Her aldDr C W Trapp of Lexington with a handicap of six birds won the E P Perry trophy a handsome solid silver loving cup One hundred and twenty five birds were required in deciding the contest All the way through there was a sharp contest and the trophy was not won until the last bird Hew from the raps John Mastin of Frankfort handicap three was second Others in cljsb cuccfision were John Flood of Lextng ton handicap four Wilgus Luxon of Lexington handicap four and Dr Brown of Mt Sterling handicap three Many of the crack shots of the club were present and from the standpoint of the spectators the exhibition amply repaid them for the walk from the end of the street car line to the grounds o May Be Three In- Race For Senate A number of his friends have signed a petition asking Mr G W Waddy to become a candidate for State Senator from this district If he accepts it will be a threecornered race Dr W R Ray and Judge P J Beard having already announced their intention to run This district would be well rep resented should either of these gentlemen be selected Shelby Record TO RESTORE Monument Erected Herefo Daniel Boone Sculptor Studying Life Of The Pioneer Union Soldiers Ruin Memo rial To Hero CHIPS FROM IT AS SOUVENIRS After several years delay there is now good prospect of getting the Boone mounment In the cemetery here restored to its original con Iiditlonstore the monument is in Frankfort looking at pictures of Boone and studying the history and scenes and Incidents In the life of the Kentucky pioneer so that he will be in the proper mood for making plates show ing the life of Boone It will be several months before the work is finished and the monument restored but when the sculptor gets through it is expected that the Boone moun ment will be as it was many years ago The Legislature of 1906 appro prlated 2000 for the restoration of the monument but this has never been used and the sculptor who was engaged many months ago has just begun his work for some reason bej IWhenchipIoff to take back home as souvenirs The act of vandalism in chipping the mounment has been atI trlbuted to sightseers generally but It is said by the older Inhabitants of Frankfort that the destruction of the monument was done by the soldiers Since that time the mounment has not been touched it is said and Itt vvus only during the war that the lower part of the monument was defaced as it has been The Union soldiers passing through Frankfort- or camped here for a time wante- some souvenirs of Kentucky to take back with them and they chose the Boone mounment They chipped off so many pieces of the Ease reliefs on the lower part of the mounmen t that it was practically ruined On each side of the monument was de pitted in margle an act in the life of Boone One side showed Boone Ing an Indian and another showed Boone and a bear fighting A third side depicted Boones wife milking a cow while the fourth side showed Boone sitting under his own vine and fig tree All these have been rulnel by the souvenir collectors and the mounment Is now stripped of almost everything that would show to whom the monument was erected The work of the new sculptor will be to make new plates to be fas tened to the mounment and to repro duce the scenes which were on the original monument Plaster casts will be used and the marble reliefs made from this The sculptor Is one of the best known artists in Gin cinnati and is going to do the work as quickly as possible Boones body is resting in the State Cemetery here apd it is fitting that the monument erected by the State to the pioneer should be in perfect condition Steps will be taken to prevent any further defacing of the monument o A CREDITABLE PAPER A copy of the Jubilee Edition of the NowState Tribune of Muskogee Okla of which Ben Watt

of simply Idle conservation be tween three newspaper men In the Governors reception room the other day while they were waiting to see Gov Willson may come one of the best schemes to advertise Frankfort that has yet been carried out or suggested Jack Stuart and Shelton Saufley both of whom are Elks were talking to one of the other newspapertmen on general topics Mr Saufley suggested that It would be a fine advertisement for Frakfort If the Elks could send about twenty men to Los Angeles when the Elks holdIttheir next meeting Mr Stuart en larged on the suggestion and that night at the meeting of the local takenIup in earnest 1Mr Stuart suggested that if twenty men In uniform could go to Los An geles from Frankfort it would be the best advertisement for the city that i could be devised and would get the1city known all over the country es pecially if one of the prizes could be won by the Frankfort aggregation Every paper In the United States would print the winners in the varlousacontests and to win one of them would be easy for the Kentuckians It is proposed to raise a fund to pay the railroad fare of those who would go on the trip and each man going would pay his other expenses out otjrhis own pocket A minstrel will be given anyhow this having al ready been discussed Several otherlentertainments could also be and the local Elks are taking hold of the scheme with favor The business men are interested too and would do their part 0 New Modern Front For IMain Street Store GREAT4jCRUTCHER SIMPSON TO LY IMPROVE APPEARANCE OF PLACE Crutcher Simpson are soon to

fired Into the Fannie Wallace and Harvester wounding John Goodall engineer on the liar f vester in the stomach and hitting the night watchman in the foot Without warning to the men on the boats a j loaded barge was blown up by dynamite and volley after volley of shots were fired into the two towboats o A rain wind and hail storm of tertrifle proportions struck Frankfort Fri day afternoon about 4 oclock and had everybody anxious for a few minutes The rain fell in torrents and with It Iinage to growing grain and the hard rain beat down corn but the extent of the storm could not be learned as we went to press The fire alarm wires were crossed and sent In1 an alarm but as the bell tapped only once It was not necessary for the depart ment to go out Many roofs looked in Frankfort The rain is greatly wel corned by the farmers who needed water on their corn rnYk PAGE TWO 10 BREAK Mw Suit Filed By Natural Heirs Of James Holt l Estate Worth Half Million Involved In Courts Menta1ncaP city Alleged As Cause Of Aetna BIO FORTUNE LEFT TO CHARITY Suit to break the will of James A p Holt the eccentric man who left half a million dollars largely to found a charity has been filed in the Frank lin Circuit Court and a suit in equity has also been filed to set aside one provision of the will which gives to Clark Lodge of Jeffersonville a large II bequest The natural heirs of Holt have filed the suit and the contest will be one of the hardest fought cases ever tried in this cpurt It is alleged in the suit that the testator did not have a knowledge of his prop I erty or the rights of his kinspeople and that he was mentally incapable of making a will 4James A Holt a somewhat eccen r trio old man who had accumulated a large fortune some 25 years since bought what is known as the Todd farm a very valuable one consisting of between seven and eight hundred acres of bluegrass land and aroun which there was an unbroken line of stone fence erected by Harry I Todd at a time when he was lessee of the prison labor It is said of Mr Holt that when he came to Franklin county he declared it his Intention never to buy anything from or sell anything to Franklin county people and that he made a vow that there should never be cut a sprig of bluegrass from any of this area of woodland pasture He was a widower without children and lived a lonely hermitlike exist ence having little to do with his neigh bors and apparently taking no inter est in or care for his nieces and nephews or other relatives who ordinarily might have been expected to be the object of his bounty and good will It was said that at the time of the purchase of the farm ne induced two of his nephews and possi bly a niece to furnish their savings towards the purchase of this farm suggesting that it would be a home for them all during his life and at his death it would be theirs the title however being taken by Mr Holt Subsequent to this time differences arose between them and the title be lag In Mr Holt he was enabled to ext elude them from any participation in the enjoyment of his farm One of them John Green moved off to a little cottage adjacent to the farm whoa he died and the other one James Green was committed to a lunatic f 1asylum in Indiana It was well understood that Mr Holt had accumulated a large fortune estimated at from 300000 to a mil lion dollars In 1883 he made a will and subsequent to that time a codicil to the will and still later a short time before his death he made a second codicil to It The substantial effect of the will Is to give the Clark Lodge of Jefferson ville practically his entire estate the larger part of which was in bank stock and real estate business houses etc In Louisville Ky One peculiarity of his will Is that whilst giving to two of his cousins Clementine Deshon and Clara Clark a life estate In the farm in Franklii county he so limits their use of it as to nuke it difficult if not impracticable to make a living tm it although It Is a magnificent farm For Instance no bluegrass is to be plowed the farm is not to be leased or rented no timber to be cut etc It is said that a large part of what is ordinarily known as the blue grass pastures have grown up In weeds and bushes so that they are to a large extent valueless and yet the provisions of the will are such they can not be plowed up and 1that rid of Clark Lodge of Jeffersonville has a contingent remainder Interest upon the death without Issue of Clem entine Deshon and Clara Clark and as such contingent remaindermen they will not consent that any pasture be plowed or any part of the land be leased or rented or pastured and In deed there is now a suit pending by j the Fidelity Trust Company of Louis ville trustee for the Clark Lodge against Mr and Mrs Clark because they had cut some timber with the view of building some necessary out buildings on the premises The formal charge in the will con test is that the will Is not the will of James A Holt In other words that he did not have mental capacity suf ficient to know the extent and value of his estate and to take a rational survey thereof and dispose of the same according to a fixed conviction of his own Likewise that he did not know the natural objects of his bounty that fs his relatives and did not know his duty to them The equity suit Is brought upon the Idea that the will Is vague and uncertain In its provisions as to whom th bounty of the testator Is Intended for the Clark Lodge of Jeffersonville It is claimed is not authorized by its charter to accept such gift and the bulk of the estate is devoted to its II Again t Is claimed that by the pro visions of the will a trustee Is to be appointed under the orders of a Ken tacky court to carry out the provis KentucIeJI1nr heirs of Mr Holt say Is Impossible of execution Col James A Scott Scott Scott of Indianapolis Ind W C Marshall Robt B Franklin and Judge B G Williams have been retained by the natural heirs to make these contests The Fidelity Trust Company of Lou- Isville Ky trustee Is represented by Major Ernest MacPherson of Louis ville and It Is not known what local lawyers If any will be Interested on that side 0 POTATO CROP Will Take Place Of Tobacco In Bluegrass SPUDS PLANTED OVER SOME 50000 ACRES IN BURLEY I DISTRICT Irish potatoes bid fair to be the money producing crop which will take the place of tobacco In the bluegrass region It Is estimated that 60000 acres of the rich soil have been plant ed In potatoes this year as compared with 15000 acres in the preceding year Until last season potatoes had been considered only a garden crop In this section being limited gen erally to the needs of the family of the producer When the tobacco crop was partly eliminated last year many farmers tried a crop of potatoes in its place and so successful was the experiment that a much lerger crop was produced this year A great advantage In raising pota toes Is that two crops can be grown In one season while all of the other staple products of the farm produce only one crop each year The output of the crop of potatoes varies from twentyfive to 100 bushels per acre md they readily sell from sixtyfive to seventy cents a bushel The first of the two crops of the season has now been grown and large quantities of the new potatoes are being brought to Louisville where they are largely bought by the whole sale dealers and shipped to other parts of the country Louisville Philadel phia Chicago and New Orleans being large potato markets The first crop having nov been harvested the sec ond crop Is being planted and this will not be ready to market until about the first frost of the fall The second crop is generally not so large as the first although many farmers do not plant their potatoes early enough to have more than one crop The season this year has not been favorable to the growth of potatoes In this section though a fair crop of early potatoes has been harvested As the potatoe requires far less labor and attention than tobacco the net profit per acre Is generally fully equal to tht from a tobacco crop and s believed that having discovered this fact the farmers of the bluegrass region will next year devote much of their land to raising potatoes and be ndifferent alike to the trust and the night riders o o CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATION ClerkCarrier An examination for cleric and

JUDGESHIP Lawrenceburg Excited By Governors Appointment BOARD OF TRUSTEES REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE MAN NAMED BY WILLSONr Lexington Leader A unique muddle growing out ofI the selection of u successor to Police Judge Buckner has developed at Law renceburg according to a telephone message from that town to the Lead erThursday morning Judge Buckner who had served long and honorably as Police Judge died at Lawrenceburg a few weeks ago and ever since the Board of Trustees of the town have been con cerned In the selection of his succes sor They finally settled upon Shelby Hahn a prominent citizen and an- nOunced their decision Gov Wilson however declined to recognize this action and appointed J N Johnson Police Judge This riled the Board of Trustees and they refused to turn over the town hall to Mr Jphnson declined to allow him possession of the town records and in short failed to recognize the ap polntment made by the Governor This got Mr Johnsons temper aroused and on Wednesday he took action against the Board of Trustees to secure control of the town hall andI the city records Then the support ers of Mr Hahn also got busy and filed mandamus proceedings against Gov WIllson to compel him to recognize the appointment of Mr Hahn as the City Judge and there the matter rests for the present The little town of Lawrenceburg iSI about evenly divided between the supporters of Mr Hahn and Mr Johnson and the developments are being watched with much InterestIo Say They Can Beat City Soldiers Shooting MOUNTAIN MEN ON STATE RIFLE TEAM CHALLENGE FIRST REGIMENT Resenting the Imputation that they can not shoot as well as the city soldiers the mountain men who ar members of the Kentucky rifle team have arranged a match between the men of the First Infantry and the men of the Second Infantry and say that they will show the city men that they are as good as they think they are The soldiers of the First Infantry from Louisville have bee making the best scores In the shoot IQg on the range at Kennebec Station and the papers published a story about how the mountain men who have been taught to shoot since they could hold a gun were being bested by the men of Louisville The mountain men are members of the Second Infantry being from the PInevllle and Mlddlesboro companies and they say that they have fallen b uhind because the city men have had chance to practice during the winter n the armory at Louisville The Sec ond Kentucky men say that they are really the best shots and can beat the Louisville men any old time There- is therefore great rivalry betwecn the men on the team and this rivalry will help the scores at Camp Perry in the national match as the Kentuckians will be shooting against each other as well Us against their opponents Capt Krieger has made the best score on the range consistently- and is showing up better than any of the others He is a Louisville man The other men on the team have all been shooting well Sergeant J W Wilson of Middles boro a

convention September 3 toWe are authorized announco W P KIMBALL of Fayette county as a candidate for reelection to Congress from the 7th Congressional District subject to the action ofrthe Democratic Convention September 3 FOR COUNTY JUDGE The News is authorized to announce II C Hieatt asa candidate for county Judge of Franklin county subject to the action of the Democratic party 72tf JAMES H POLSGROVE of Frank Jin county is a candidate for Common wealths attorney of this the Four teenth Circuit Court District subject to the action of the Democratic party Harpers Weekly a Republican newspaper traveling under the cloak of a nonpartisan weekly has begun to attack Bryan with vlndlctiveness that augers well for Democratic suc cess That publication contained a review of the Denver Convention that was simply an attack on Bryan and did not even have the merit of being well written The author of It did not sign his name to It but presumably it was written by Editor Harvey himself In addition to the several columns of personal abuse and a bare bold statement of the writers opinion given not as an opinion but as a statement of fact there was a double page cartoon In line with the editorial matter The two together showed that the Repub licans realize that they have the fight of their lives this time and that proves conclusively that they fear Bryan in 1908 If they did not fear him before The paper Is not content with attacking the Democratic party and Bryan politically but at tacks Bryan personally It calls him vindictive and selfish and attributes to him qualities which repeated to ones face would mean fight down hereThe nonpartisan Impartial paper Is a rare and curious thing It Is al most impossible to stand aside and show no favoritism when one must be vitally interested In the result of a contest The best way Is to be partisan and give both sides a square deal But it certainly Is tire some to read a lot of drivel from the pen of a maxi who poses as an authority and who regards his opinion as of paramount Importance Mr Har vey seems to labor under the halucl nation that when he says a thing is true it Immediately becomes true He has arisen as a champion of Judge Parker who he says knows more law than all the others who at tended the Democratic Convention This Is u rather sweeping statement and we hope It Is true for Judge Parker deserves some compensation for the deep blackness of obscurity In which ho now dwells after having dight The negroes had a picnic at the park several days ago and they packed the cars so full that one could hardly find standing room One car so filled came by the Country Club and several ladles boarded It having waited some time to get a caron which they could get a seatTiie front seat was filled with negro men The back seat was also filled The ladles stood on the front and rear platforms while the negro men oc cupied seats Not a negro made a offer his seo a white woman but let them stand all the way to town Had the men bee white the women would have been offered seats but the negro thinks is e too good It Is a great pity tha no white man was on that particular car to force the negroes to give up their seats If they did not have the decency to offer their seats they should have been forced to give them upsThe negroes in this town seem to think they own it anyhow and when they are going to or returnin from one of their numerous picnics they take possession of the cars like they had the cars chartered for thel own especial benefit If this keeps up the outcome wil be separate coaches for negrpes jus as they are now herded together on the railroads The negroes are re sponsible for this segregation of the races They presume on the slight est privilege which Is allowed them and to see a husky negro man sitting while several white women stand on a street car Is certain to incline ones mind to the question of separate coaches If the negro will not act as he should a firm hand is needed to force him to do so o Water is taking an unusually large toll this year The number of deaths from drowning is unusually large and It seems that in Louisville especially there have been ninny mo than during any previous summer Frankfort has been especially fortu nate in having no accidents which have resulted fatally A foolish per son and a boat on deep water is a dangerous combination and most of the boating accidents are due to care lessness or foolishness If one sits steadily in a boat or canoe and treats it with proper respect one is In no danger of being plunged suddenly Into the water o We have not brought the City Coun cil around to our way of thinking on the subject of stock pens but we have just begun to fight for them and intend to keep It up persistently and externally as long as we have any connection with a paper In Frankfort What is more to the point we In tend to take a hand in the next elec tion for councilmen and see If we can not get something done by the Incoming governing body The arguments against stock pens will be found to be unfounded when the stock pen law Is given a trial o The street car company has put up electric lights at the platform in front of the Country Club and It Is greatly appreciated by the members of the club All favors are thankfully received but the members would think Mr Sallee one of the best street railway managers in the coun try if he would just give them an extra car about 615 every afternoon especially on Saturday =o tePessimistErstwhile The Optimist ByARD Seeing Frankfort excursions are all the rage here this summer and frequently the Frankfort people who go along in the parties see things that they had never seen before and would never have seen but for some friend from outoftown coming in and going Frankfort has no rubber neck wagons as the sightseeing automobiles are called In New York but It has loads of sightseers and they all follow the same beaten track Here as elsewhere they are called towerlsts and can bo easily recog nized by the camera they carry and the fact that all of them squint at the window from which Goebel was shot and stand on the place where he fell No seeing Frankf t expe dition Is complete without that and probably nobody has been In Frank fort during the last eight years with out going to see that historic spot prior to leaving town The Capitols another drawing card That means the new building The old one Is popular of course forIt has manj associations that are Interesting but the new capitol is something of which andIoutgoing out i the HL looking nfl big pile of sto marble governmentnfor many years to come Frankfort Is glad to have the newt capitol and is proud of It but Frank fort does not go to look at the capitol Except when a visitor comes along and wants to be shown through the place Frankfort Is rattier blase any 1how about such things having been the seat of government for so long Governors and Senators are rather togboth It is the same way with the new building on the hill in South isrthere and thinks It Is fine but there 1isno need of going up every few days Thentalong comes a visitor anJJthe Frank fort host or hostes dArikrat to the capitol and come a king and raving about the VHRs of the new building Their eVBhave been opened and they do 1 mind going to the capitol the next time Grim and silent but teeming with human Interest and color the peal tentiary is the place that every visitor wants to see and a stream of sight seers flow through there nearly everyday And It is a sight worth seeing in that prison are thirteen hundred men black and white serving short terms and long terms and life sen fences for all manner of crimes The handling of thirteen hundred men Is rea task when one can pick the men and gets only the better class of work men But think of the problem when these thirteen hundred are convicts many of them desperate and all of them either professional or chance criminals The Pessimistwent through there the other day conducts Ing a seeing the prison expedition the party being composed of young women two of whom were on a visit here Mac Phythlan a deputy warden was the guide and what Mac does not know about the prison Is un interesting He knows almost everyone of the thirteen hundred convicts knows their names where they came from and for what offense they were sent to the penitentiary The first thing about the penitentiary that surprises the visitor Is the yard The yard Is like a city park with green grass and many trees and large flower beds growing beautr ful flowers This is something that no other penitentiary in the country has In most of them the yard Is paved with concrete and there is nothing growing In It How great a blessing t must be to the convicts shut up inside the high stone walls to be able to see something of growing things that please the eye The jnen do appreciate It too and on Sundays when they are allowed to spend the day In the yard they simply revel in the beauty of it although they may not know what It is that appeals to their better nature Who is that good looking man with the black hair sitting over there asked one of the visiting girls who was getting her first glimpse of a prison Thats a yegg doing time for blowing a safe up In the eastern part of the State replied Mr Phythlan The girl liked the mans looks even better after she found that he was a real criminal Now a yeggman Is a safeblower Not a casual criminal or one who Is the victim of sudden impulse but one who makes his living by robbing safes He Is one of the most dangerous and confirmed criminals and in the underworld Is highly regarded being classed at the top of the criminal list You see that onelegged man there said Mr Phythlan pointing to a negro The girls were much In terested and thought the negro was an object of pity He Is In here for murder Ho burned up a woman with a lighted lamp The girls lost their sympathy at once f In the cell house another surprise was met something that surprises everybody who goes Into the prison That Is the absolute cleanliness of the place It is as clean as any prl vate home could be and the prison cdor which Is so common In jails and prisons end which is quite distinctive Is missing Col E E Mudd the warden keeps the whole prison spotlessly clean and he has rid the prison of the odor which corn ply from thirteen hundred v Ing in one big room In the J it house which was built onl w years ago Hanlon formerly 8 man In Louisville and a fine looking man is in charge as cell boss Han Ion sells souvenirs which are made by the prisoners He is serving a life sentence and was convicted on circumstantial evidence of the killing of Corporal Richterkessing also a member of the police force An ef fort Is being made to get Hanlon pardoned The other day when he was showing the souvenirs he had for sale one of the party picked up a cross and started to buy it but asked first If it was made Inside the prson Hanlon replied that It was not and one of the party said to him You ought not to say that the things are not made in here You lost a sale by that This man was about to buy that cross but did not when he found It was not made In side the walls I cant help that replied Hanlon I am not going to He about it to sell the things The dungeon at the penitentiary is so dark that one feels oppressed by the blackness and some persons have difficulty in breathing while inside even for a few minutes Visitors in the cell house are usually shown the dungeon and are put inside for a few minutes Just so they can see what darkness really is The dun geon Is perfectly ventilated but one might as well be blind when one is inside Yet a man stayed In there for forty days and forty nights and would have stayed there his whole term without uttering a protest until he was forced to stand all the time and then he came around In twenty four hours and was ready to go to work- o SCOTT COUNTY FAIR 5 big days 5 big nights

Judge Polsgrove Goes On Inspection Tour STONE STRUCTURE E BEING BUILT Two bridges In this county which are not In a safe condition are being repaired and a new Stone bridge is being built to replace another was in good condition so whichI soon as this work Is completed will not be any danger of an auto mobile accident such as occurred in Bullitt county several days ago when six prominent Louisville per sons were thrown forty feet into Salt River County Judge James Pols grove this week made an Inspection of the bridges of the county with a view to putting into condition an those which needed It He has ordered repaired the only two which were found to be unsafe in any way Both these bridges are being used and both have had automobiles run over them recently so that they are not actually dangerous but Judge Polsgrove did not want to take any chances A bridge on the Louisville turn pike about four and onehalf miles from Frankfort near Bridgeport has not been in first class condition and Judge Polsgrove even thought It might be unsafe This road Is used by Louisville and auto mobile parties a great deal and many big touring cars Tire run over it Judge Polsgrove thought that there might be danger of an accident in case a heavy touring car running at a high rate of speedsshould pass over the bridge so he puta gang of men t owork repairing the bridge and It will soon be In first class condition The other bridge which Judge Pols grove thought was not in the best con diticn and which needed repairing was on the Lawrenceburg turnpike several miles from Frankfort This bridge also is being repaired and will be made perfectly safe A stone bridge is being built on the Louisville turnpike to replace a wooden bridge which had fallen into decay and this bridge will soon be finished With these three bridges In first class condition the bridges on all the roads leading into Frankfort will be in apple pie order and can be used with perfect safety by wagons or automobiles Judge Polsgrove did not want an accident such as hap pened In Bullitt county to happen In this county It Is not good advertis ing for the county to have It known that bridge has been left In poor condition or misleading altogether so that a party of pleasureseekers can be hurled down a steep bank Judge Polsgrove Is looking out for the countys Interests and made this ins spection tour not as a result of the accident in Bullitt county but as a part of his duties as county Judge Nearly every county in the State is now inspecting its bridges Just be cause of the accident In Bullitt

the bat That was the situation in the last inning of the game biibReen Lexingn am1 t fort Thu y It was a sltua t was badthose with heart t The strain was great Everybory was standing up and everybody was holding everybodys breath as each ball was pitched to the Texas leaguer He lid not wait long but swatted one Allison was on third Everybody was keyed up to the highest pitch and everybody was excited McCormick was still pitching beautiful ball but the strain was telling on him Meyers hit one It was not particularly hard hit but McCormick let it go by him believing that Kimbrough at second would handle it as he had handled erything that came his way But Kim brough was nervous and too anxious He fumbled the ball and then could not pick it up Allison was racing for home Meyers was racing for first and the Frankfort rooters were shouting and howling like mad Indians Kim brough could not get the balM Meyers landed safely on first game was over Frankfor but Frankfort won by the HKiiar gin Lexington made jusl Hrror and that error cost them the l H- One rarely sees a better ganMfhan that one Thursday and everwody who went had a run for their money It was anybodys game from first to last and from the way they were play ing ball one could not see how either side could win It looked like they would keep on playing forever with out either side scoring Both pitch ers were almost invincible and be hind each pitcher the teams stood like stone walls backing up the wonder ful twirling with perfect ball playing No two teams anywhere could play better ball than they played for they bandied everything perfectly and took balls that looked like sure hits It was a great game for those who did not have an attack of heart trouble Ferguson who came here from Cin cinnati pitched a

nothing but scratches McCormick was pitching the same kind of ball He was hit safely only three times and one of these hits by Ferguson was a scratch that landed safely and did no good as Angermeier was thrown out at the plate while he was trying to score on the throwin It was a sound and safe one that Angermeler knocked though and Allison also landed a beauty which won the game Just five hits in nine innings That is going some And it was not all strikeouts either They were hitting the balls a good deal and the fielders were kept on thei jump Several times long hard drive went to the outfield and were gobble up The infield was also playing balj some and anything on the ground was sure to be an out In one inning McCormick pitched only seven balls and put three men out The first man up hit the first ball to right field and it fell into a sack The second ball pitched went to left field and another out was chalked up The third man was hard er to manage and two balls and three strikes were pitched to him That is pretty ball playing for sure It was that way almost through the entire game and no one could complahi Frankfort never had but one chance to score up to the ninth inning An germeier hit one to left field that struck the fence The catcher for Lexington motioned the left fielder to change his position but the latter failed to do so and Angy sent one that was not to be reached Angy landed on second having a narrow escape on the thrownin Ferguson then landed safely to right The ball was only a little lob but nobody could get to it Angy dug fdr third as soon as the ball was hit and did not stop at third but went on for home A quick hard throw caught him at the plate by several feet Some of the funs criticised Angermeier for trying to take two bases on the hit but he did right It was an even chance and it had to be a perfect throw to catch him Had the ball gone even a little wild he would have scored Anyhow the next man up after Ferguson put one to short that would have given Lexington an easy double play and Angy would not have scored Few men are more levelheaded and better base runners than Angermeier and he seldom makes a mistake The passed ball which Angy let get away from him and let a runner go to see and on a strikeout was certainly ex cupable Angy had never caught Fer guson before This was in only the second Inning and Ferguson throw 0I peculiar spit ball that was almost Impossible to stop much less to hit That particular ball had all kinds ct kinks to it and Angermeier would have acne Wonders had he caught It With this exception the
