FRANKFORT WEEKLY NEWSh AND ROUNDABOUT I fit IItoOL xxxi FRANKFORT KENTUCKY AUGUST 11908 No 47 l iyails HARMONY All Over The State 1 Of Kentucky I f d dy Believes Hell Campaign Committee Named Next rWeek GOOD DOPE FROM THE INSIDER Special Correspondence Louisville Ky July 30It was good to see the members of the Demo cratic State Central and Executive Committees at work here this week They showed the oldtime Democratic which has been missing for time truth to tell and mores pitywith the latter day har Isome as a leaven for the lump We going some with Ben Johnson as of the Campaign Committee a good Democrat and true hav Ing the confidence of every party man In the State He was the Insiders tip a week ago Bob Phillips landed the secretaryship of the two State- committees and In all likelihood will 4be secretary of the Campaign Com mlttee as well Her Is where the spirit and hal mony were shown at one and the time Bob had to beat George 1Speer for the place and after It was George congratulated Bob and Bob said a few gracious words in turn That hasnt happened In some years so far as I can remember IThe thing to do now is to get a Campaign Committee that will be a coherent cooperating unifying and effective working force A subcommittee with full power was selected to name this committee and I have heard some pretty straight gossip as to the personnel of this committee In part It Is pretty well conceded that f Judge S W Hager and Josh T Grif fith will be on this committee Both men are practical and popular and are known the State over Judge Hager as a State officer for eight years and the relent nominee of the Democrats for Governor and Josh Griffith as an fOwensboro Democrat from skin to marrow It is also likely that John C C Mayo or R H Van Zant will be on the committee from up State Both men have recently taken an active therv Convention in Denver serving on the Committee on Credentials They are close friends and neither will resent the election of the other Among the Other names mentioned for the places on the committee are C C McChord and R C Ford Mr McChord late Railroad Commissioner with a long experience as a campaign manager apd Mr Ford formerly the nominee of the party for State Treasurer I be lieve Theres the nucleus for a capital Campaign Committee dont you think The whole committee will be named in Louisville some time next weelt 0Iparty custom that may be news to even those politi clans who keep pretty close to the conduct of party affairs The Con gresslonal Campaign Committees are not appointed by the regularly consti tuted party officials but are named by the congressmen of each district The names of the committeemen are sent on to the National Congressional Campaign Committee and form a sep rate fighting organization Of course war is waged with the one object of securing the election of all Democrat CongressionalII the fixed policy of State Campaign Committee using what discretion is indicated by local conditions I The Ion Urey Woodson Secretary 6 of the Democratic National Commit tee passed through Louisville yester day on his way to New York where he will consult with Norman Mack Chairman of the Committee It has been decided that for this campaign Mr Woodson will have his headquoi ters in Chicago instead of in Nel York as it was last year The battle ground of the campaign will lie in th west and middle west and it is thj desire of the National Committee have the generals near the seat o hostilities o Henry Watterson who was named by the Campaign Committee last week to take charge of the newspaper end of Mr Bryans campaign left to day for New York where he will go over the situation with Chairman Mack Air Watterson will remain In New York during the whole of Au gust and ill devote much of his at tendon to outlining jhe character of newspaper campaign to be made by the Democrats this year 0Harvey McCutchen Is the avowed candidate to succeed himself as Pris on commissioner It has been known for some time that Ell Brown wanted to stay on the job but it has been only within the last few days that Harvey has made up his mind to the same effect Both are putting in a few licks where they will do the most good in anticipation of the time when the roundup comes 0When the two State Committees were meeting here this week I went out to The Seelbach to take a look at Ollie James You know Ollie has grown since we last had him in our midst He left the State a leader of Kentuckians He came back a leader of the Nation He bears his honors easy With some 300 pounds of aver dupois six or eight fee of stature an4the shoulders of a Hercules why shouldnt he I wonder how a cabinet position would fit Ollie You know Mr Bryan thinks the world and all of him THE INSIDER o Scott Brown May Enter The Race FRIENDS URGING HIM TO RUN FOR REPRESENTATIVE OF FRANKLIN COUNTY It is rumored that Mr Scott Brown will likely get in the race for Repre sentative of Franklin county A num her of his friends have been urging him to run for some time but he has not yet fully determined what he will do His friends claim that he will make a hard fight If he decides to get in the race They say he has always been a loyal Democrat sup porting all of the partys nominees and that he is prominent In the Amer lean Society of Equity movement as well as being personally popular and for these reasons would make a for midable candidate Capitol Commission Holds Important Meeting CONSIDERING PLANS FOR HEAT ING AND LIGHTING PLANT FOR NEW BUILDING The State Board of Capitol Com missioners met late yesterday after noon

COMMISSION AT NEXT MEETING Rate Clerk Roy Wilhoit of the State Railroad Commission has Just completed a report which will be sub mitted to the commission at its next meeting in which he says that the adoption of the new system of ac counting as provided by the Inter state Commerce Commission would work n particular hardship upon the steam carriers in this State Mr Wil holt was directed by the commission to make a study of all accounting sys terns in order that the commission may take up as soon as possible the railroad forms for the annual reports which must be made to the commis sion before Sept L Upon these re ports the commission will make its annual assessment of the roads Mr Wilhoit has been in communication with the Interstate Commerce Commission 1th a view of having eliminated certain portions of the carriers annual report Wilhoits form as made up eliminates certain unimportant features of the old re port and adds new points suggested by the Interstate Commission He says that this will afford the carriers relief in securing information and will gradually introduce them to the new system as drawn by the commission Before the new system recommended by him Is adopted by the Kentucky Commission Mr Wilhoit will go to Washington to familiarize himself with the new forms In the office of the Chief Statistician and Accountant of the Interstate Commission l

farmers have been cutting oats nil week with such a poor result that most of It will be saved in the sheaf and little thresh ing will be done o WINE SET USED BY KING EDWARD OF ENG LAND OWNED BY FORMER FRANKFORT MAN The Rev Alexander C Hensley rector of St Johns Episcopal church of Versailles has In his possession a set of wine glasses and finger bowls which were owned and used by King Edward of Great Britain when as the Pjlnce of Wales he spent a winter during the 60s in Montreal When the prince closed his home in Montreal his effects were sold and part of them were purchased by Mr Hens toys uncle Judge Torrance of Mon treal The glassware came into Mr Hensleys possession after the death of his aunt Mrs Laura Torrance Each piece Is marked with the crest and motto of the Prince of Wales BRYAN Discusses Platform Of The Impendence Party Shows Similarity Of Planks Adopted At Denver Mascot Offered In Shape Of Mule Not Refused REPLY TO ROSEWATER The most Interesting piece of news to emanate from Fairview Thursday was a formal statement by William J Bryan in which he discussed the platform of the Independence party adopted at the convention at Chicago which adjourned Wednesday and pointed out that it contains a number of planks identical with or substantially similar to the planks of the Demo cratic platform He declared that the voter preferring the Democratic platform to the Republican platform and yet who Joins with the Independence party merely assist the Republican party and thus defeats the reforms In which he is Interested Mr Bryan argues that the question is not wheth er one can get all the reform that he wants but how he can get the most reform and he asserts that the Dem ocratic party offers the best oppor tunity to secure that which is obtain able at this time Mr Bryans statement was as fol lowsIt contains a number of planks which are identical with or substantially similar to the planks of the Democratic platform For instance it demands the election of Senators by the direct vote of the people as the Democratic platform does its tariff plank is quite liken our tariff plank its plank on the trusts while opposing private monopoly Is not is specific as ours Its railroad plane does not differ much from ours Its similarGAYmd its labor plank like ours con talus a declaration in favor of trial by jury and in regard to the exemp tion of labor organizations from tht operation of antitrust laws Like our platform It condemns the extravagance of the Republica party and demands greater economy It does not advocate however a De partment of labor with a Secretary In the Cabinet It does not oppose Im perialism which has been used tc justify the Increase in our standing army and Its plank as to publicity ot campaign contributions is not nearly so strong as ours The question that must confront the member of the Independence party is this Will he assist In the defeat of the Democratic party whlcl stands for so much that he favors merely because he cannot get all that he would like Either the Democrat- Ic party or the Republican party will win and the voter who preferring the Democratic platform to the Re publican platform Joins with the In dependence party merely assists the Republican party and thus defeats several of the reforms In which he is interested Take for instance the plank In favor of the election of Senators by the vote of the people the Democrat- Ic party has Indorsed that reform in three campaigns the Republican convention defeated the proposition by an overwhelming vote If the Democratic party succeeds its managers are pledged to this reform tin e Republican party is not pledged to it and the Republican candidate has gone no further than to say that is personally inclined to it This re formis necessary before any other reform can be secured Is not the In dependent voter Justified in helping the Democratic party to secure this reformSo in regard to the labor ques tions The Democratic party is In fa vor of remedies demanded by wage earners and a wageearner who votes with the Independence party simply defeats the reforms In which he is in terested And the same argument might be made in regard to those who favor tariff reform the extermination of the principle of private monopoly and the remedy of other evils which have grown up under Republican ad mirn ration The question is not whether one can get all the reform he wants but how hwan ge the most reforms The Democratic party offers him the best opportunity to secure that which is obtainable at this time Unlike his distinguished opponents who refused to accept an elephant as a mascot Mr Bryan Thursday in response to a letter from the Agricultural Society of Minnesota tel egraphed that he would be delighted to avail himself of their offer to send him an educated mule as a mascot He is said to understand the hab its of the elephant declared Mr Bryan with a twinkle of the eyes and for that reason among others I shall accept him No attempt will be made by Mr Bryan to reply to the open letter of Victor Rosewater of Omaha charg ing a conspiracy between Mr Bryan and his brotherinlaw State Chair man Allen to purloin votes in Nebras ka He simply addressed that to me to attract attention said Mr Bryan He is hardly the man to go to the Populists as guardian The actual preparation of the speech of acceptance was begun by Mr Bryan Thursday Among the no table visitors who will be present on the day of notification will be John W Kern of Indiana the Democratic Vice Presidential nominee At the conclusion of the exercises Mr Bryan will receive the Notifica tion Committee and several distin guished guests at Fairview where supper will be served on the lawn y o Market Gardeners Will Form Association DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Provoked The Black Lincoln Dead Negro Has Right ToIdeasOn Tnriffu DISE- Anicatloniprlnteon ME rrs GALL tt trIneditorial comma the page of The Observer Geo C Clement editor of The Star of Zion of Charlotte N C explains why in his opinion the blacks are opposed to Taft as President His letter follows There are doubtless manywho wonder why the dishonorable lIscharge of r the three companies of negro soldiers i so universally and bitterly affronted our people The answer Is easy The record of the black soldiers In a hundred Indian battles on Western fields at San Juan and La Quaslma and In the Phllllplnes was the one 1green spot the one priceless oasis In all the desert of recent race conditions which touched most Intensely the patriotism of the negro To have this record shattered by one blow without due process of law and to have our honored soldiers disgraced before their alleged crime I was proven was more than we could stand It pricked us to the quick and we will be a long time recovering from the shock The negroes were not prepared for the absolute disregard of the rules of evidence and the bias which condemned at least one hundred and fifty innocent men with a few not more than a dozen possibly guilty 4We know that Mr Roosevelt hav ing once taken a position however Impulsive and arbitrary would not re treat He does not acknowledge wrong however culpable his action In the light of subsequent developments That the parties here concerned were negroes is Immaterial in this respect When Archbishop Ireland one of the greatest Americans plainly contradicted our honorable President and proved him mistaken there wa ak no retraction hence we expected nothing favorable from Mr Roosevelt although his attitude was unreason a mrjorityBut we were shocked when he s assnhdared that even If Congress voted their reinstatement he would refuse lo order It That settled It so far as 3Ir Roosevelt and the negroes were concerned t It was then that an exasperated and d leaImade President would he be willing toethe discharged soldiers In accordance with congressional find ings and recommendation Thus far i he has refused to answer Then this same race leadership turned to Mr Bryan with the same question and his reported answer Is that he would car ry out the law and do his duty as President or else resign There Is yet a deeper and mor widespread resentment against M Taft which makes It Impossible for aelr respecting negroes to vote for him This Is his position in reference to the disfranchisement of the black voter as he expressed It at Greens Ijoro N C several months ago Mr Taft plainly condoned the action of the Southern States In the presence of a Illywhite Republican audience We shall not enter Into the merits of the disfranchising laws with their grandfather clauses etc but we shall attempt to state why we repudiate Mr Tafts candidacy upon the grounds above mentioned Bo it remembered that the hasty franchisement of the negro was use lo serve partisan Republican Interests Jt was a political act by an allpower Iy ful political organization for partisan Interests primarily and the Interest of the negro secondarily t Be It further remembered that what ever valne arose from the negro vote accrued to the Republican party and served especially to furnish offices and feather the nest of the Southern white Republican politicians The very men to whom Mr Taft was speaking have t rboen the recipients of whatever bene were obtainable through the negro votes One prominent gentleman owed his seat In tho United States to tho negro vote Others were Judges Congressmen Governors members of the State Legislature etc by this f1r t a to liea Sea oiis d1t aol graC nil As the presumptive nominee of that party for the nations greatest office Mr Taft should have been true to the traditions and obligations of his party Tis true the negro owes much to the Republican party but It Is also true that the Southern Re publican especially owes more to tile negro vptesd publican ticket Twenty years ago the late Dr J C Price one of the ab lest and wisest negroes In the lan advised a division of the negro vote He was severely criticised and m igued but If his counsel had been heeded the status of the negro voter would be far different today We continued to vote for the G O P the party that freed us the party ofJlnolnind Sumner forgot flea we re free and that great Li cola and brave Sumner were dead As a race we ask no special prlvlI leges and come with no special ing At Chicago we wanted a cool conservative and unbiased nominee We would have cordially supported Senator Knox VIcePresldent Fair banks or Gov Hughes not because of any special pronegro predilections either had shown but because we beI lleved them unprejudiced and and that they would treat us as men and citizens No more we ask and no less will satisfy usIFinally why shouldnt the negro vote for Mr Bryan and why should we be censured for turning toward the Democratic party Mr Bryan Is a Christian gentleman of the highest type a brave and outspoken statesman whose integrity has never been questioned The negroes who are now voting are not the ignorant shiftless sort some may deem them It should be noted that they are Intelligent and thousands of them educated They study the self same textbooks of poll tical economy they read the same newspapers and magazines they breathe the same atmosphere and speak the same language Why then should they not entertain the same opinions upon matters political viz the tariff States rights government ownership of public utilities relations of labor and capital etc etc Why should the Northern negro American differ in this particular fro m the Northern IrishAmerican or Ger manAmerican Yes at last the negro has learned to look out for himself and in tic campaign of 1908 he will be found supporting the man and the party that of fer most to him Who will call hi foolish for thus doing and who can Afford to deny him this right

is going to step into the breach and endeavor to raise enough money for the State treasury In back taxes from corpora tions and individuals to tide over the period until there shall be a good working margin in the State treasury so that there will be no necessity for n session He says that he b Ibackfor a good live Auditors agent in each county In the State to ferret out the delinquents and make them come in with the cash Mr James will mak an especial effort along this line dur ing the next sixty or ninety days an he believes that at the end of tha time he will have results to show for the financial campaign which he has undertakenIf necessary to collect the delinquent taxes they will be brought and he has secured an opinion fro Attorney General Breathitt that th claim for the State for taves remains as long as a judgment under the law Every corporation In Kentucky mus pay a license tax of 30 cents on eac 1000 of its capital stock and but few corporations have paid this tax but Mr James says they must pay it and the sooner they do it the less expense they will be put to The penalty increases rapidly and largely Under the Kentucky law the delln quent taxes of a propertyowner must be sold at public auction and if there is no purchaser the taxes revert to the State and a lien is taken on the property If these taxes and penalties are not paid In two years then the prop tarty becomes the property of the State Each year when the sheriff of a county settles with the Auditor an allow 1ancp is made for tax claims soltlan in this way thousands and thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes are due to the State and Mr James says they must be paid and if they are paid there will be plenty of money In the treasuryThe agent in McCracken county alone reports that there are 50000 due the State from that cou ty The amount due from Kenton and Campbell counties and from Fayet county he thinks Is equally as much and the amount due from Jeffers county he thinks will be four tlmesI that amount In some of the counties especially in Eastern Ken tucky where the land Is rich In coal and the development of the mines is in progress the amount owed tl State is enormous He says he will play no favorites and only desires to collect the money hat is due the State o Former VicePresident To Run For Governor Adlai E Stephenson Will Make Ac tive Canvass If Nominated Next Saturday Hon Adlai E

POLSGROVE as a candidate for Commonwealths Attorney of the Fourteenth Circuit Court District subject to the action of the Democratic party REV WILLIAM CROWE Frankfort people regardless o church affiliation will rejoice to know that there is at least a probability that the Rev William Crowe pastor of the Southern Presbyterian church will not leave Frankfort When he announced several weeks ago that he had decided to accept the call to Ab ingdon Va there was a general feel- Ing of regret among the citizens It is no surprise that the members of his congregation are vigorously pro 14 testing against his leaving and If they need any assistance they will have no htrOtible in securing volunteers from other denominations Frankfort needs men like Mr Crowe and he should not be allowed to leave without a vigor ous protest Mr Crowe came to Frankfort a very young man but his grace of manner his zeal for the cause of Christ his r public spiritedness and his knack for gutting close to the hearts of the people won for him friends by the thou sand When there is a religious movement on foot he Is always at his post and is one of the hardest workers He line shown himself f k ready at all times to contribute tto the welfare of Frankfort This city f 1is proud fn have such e man tn her iv Amidst and every pressure should be p Jbrought to bear to retain him t i Frankfort is baseball mad and get acting madder all the time and every rown with a team in the Bluegrass League is doing the same thing It xlias been remarkable the way interest i41n the league games has picked up tVVdurlng the last three weeks and now jievery game is well attended and on V Sundays In Frankfort the cars can 5not handle the crowd Frankfort hast a winning team and all the other iV teams in the league are fast so

terest in the games which are being 7d y Thpx management deserves credit for the way things are run hare The games are calleil promptly and everything rims smoothly all the time Manager Chick Kennedy has done everything In his power to get together a winning team and the combination he now has Is hard to boat In truth It isa faster team than one Is too fast for the city leagues In usually finds In a minor league and Louisville and Cincinnati asebal does a goodl for a cityTltiulvertlses the town and gets people to talking about the place A winning team helps this advertise meat much more than a losing team and in addition to the adv tlsetment It awakens In the people of the place a loyalty for the home city that noth ing else can do To have a team fighting In front or close to the top makes everybody pull together and once pulling together behind a base ball team they get the habit of work ng together That Is the way a towns built up and helped Everybody In t must work together and the knock ers must go back Into the rear seats If you find a town with a topnotch baseball team winning games and playing with a crowd of home men be hind it rooting for It you are certain to find a live town live merchants and plenty of business it will never hurt anybody to go to a baseball game We understand there Is talk of thee Republicans carrying the Second Con gressional District this fall and beating A0 Stanley for the reelection We even heard one man say he would bet 500 on the result But he jdidnt When It came to putting ublthe money he changed his mind He was no fool and knew better than to throw away his money He still says he thinks Stanley will be beaten but he does not think It 500 worth The Republicans have about as much chance o beating Stanley as they have of carrying Alabama for Taft Both are possible that is all Stan ley has a personal following that will stand by him through thick and thin In any kind of weather Stanley would be hard to beat at any time o If Frankfort is going to get an ap propriation for a new bridge as would be proper the way to get it is to start to work right now There is no time like the present and the best way to get a thing is to go Infthe first place Franklin county should have a man in the Legislature who has Influence and who can get votes or his measures We have no notion of taking any stiles in the Legisla live fight If there Is any but throw this out as a suggestion The county needs Its best man In the place this year especially upin oIStanding car the root leaks is not pleasant and it is not a good advertisement

The Optimist ByARD Camp Freedom on Dlx river near Danville Nobody could be a pessi mist on the banks of a river like this and the Pessimist Is now an Optimist for all things seem rosyhued and bright The only thing that makes thesiEesslmlst artcsslmia lBteople oeople la particular eopte In a bunch Indiscriminate unse lected But on this trip the crowd has been selected for compatibility and everything Is running so smoothly and everybody Is so well fed and happy and enjoying everything so thoroughly that there can be no need for anything but happiness The Pessimist is a pessimist in the city but give him a canoe find a river and a girlthe girl is Just as essential as the other things provided she Is the right onearid he be comes an optimist The dark shapes vanish and only the brighter side of life is seen To float along the sur face of a quiet and peaceful river In a light canoe with towe ng cliffs on either side no human dls turb the serenity of tf and one has an ideal s dd to this The Girl and or tent The world and its cares amHows are forgotten and one lives Hy In the present The future can ake care of Itself It is uncerttin perhaps and It may have only sorrow but one for gets that there Is a future and lives In the present The Pessimist once lived in a small town and belonged to a religious so ciety which met on Sunday nights IB tlfe annex to the church The Pessimist sometimes led the meeting Owe day they asked hm to lead and told him that the subject was the observ ance of the Sabbath The pessimist protested that his views were not or thodox and he could not talk on that subject but they Insisted and told him to say what he really thought on the subject He did so and shocked everybody who was orthodox or who said they were The Pessimist told them that the ideal way to spend the Sabbath was on the banks of some river where one could be far away from the crowd and where worldly thoughts could not Intrude There he would find sermons in stones and books in the running brooks and good in everything In the church he would be thinking about worldly things perhaps and would not get as close to his Maker as he would on the banks of the river where the Heavens declare the glory of God and the Firmament showeth His handiwork The man who says there is no God 1is one of two things He Is either a liar or a fool In nearly every in stance he is a liar He does not actually believe that there is no God He merely says so to advertise him self or for gain The man who can stand on the edge of a high cliff and look down hundreds of feet to this narrow ribbon of river stretching be neath his feet and say there is no God is merely a fool Down here when the lights are out and the camp quiet and everybody but you Is lis and you can look up and see stars with the roar of a waterfall in your ears you cannot help but believe that there Is a Divine Creator and that he made the World with a definite purpose The man who lives In the wilderness or who lives much alone especially in the woods comes to know much more of God than a man who lives In a city where there Is noise and crash and hustle and rush and roar and the eternal chase for money Down here there are no worldly thoughts to disturb us We have plenty to eat and we do not have to work for It It Is ours and a negro cooks It and sets it before us and we eat our fill and we do not have to wear stiff collars and shirts while we are eating it After that we can do as we please If we want to sleep wo sleep and if we want to paddle a boat we paddle and that is the rule of the camp It Is called Camp Freedom That is tho way we are doing things There are no rules and one does as one t rf f likes which la the only way one Is going to have a very good time any where at anytime No conventionsnx- cept those that are right per se an not because somebody says they art right One does a thing because It Is right and not because somebody says it is right And we are all Optimists We have put aside care and trouble and the lttle things which would worry us In town do not ruffle our tempers a bit down here Man puny thing at best when he Is pared with nature and the wo the Divine Creator and down he have assumed our proper rein ship with the world Heros a poem which appeared In the Danville Advocate several years ago In a column which was edited by Harry Glovanoll at that time and the author of the lines Is not defi nitely known If the chigger were bigger As big as a plow Can you flgger plcnlcer Where youd be now But there are no chiggers down here That is we have not discovered any as yet There may be chiggers If that Is the way to spell them and they may be crouching In their lairs writing to spring on us as we pass but we have not found any yet There are no sand ticks either and but a few flies which latter Is a Joy unalloyed for flies would disturb the peace and quiet of the heavenly above on high The Pessimist may comeback an optimist and the op lmlsmII may last him li long time f days and nights down here put new blood Into his veins and he can for get his troubles and the quest for news A canoe Is a lively and festive thing It belongs to the class ot those inani mate objects which are naturally per verse or even depraved Ono must watch a canoe at all times If you try to turn one over It proves a hard Job but when you try to keep one from turning over that Is another pVoposl tion Then Jther canOE will fdeljght In flopping Itself bottomside up ana dumping you Into the river One of the party down here came In from a ride the other morning the first trip In the canoe and as he pulled up to the bank said I tell you this Is a dunIt That was as far as he got Just as he finished the syllable dan the canoe turned turtle and threw thei camper out like a bucking broncho would have done It That sentence outlbutcanoe and attempts no familiarities with one s Ella Wheeler Wilcox says Right thinking Is not attained in a day or a week j We must train the mind to reject the brood of despondent refeentful fearful and prejudicial thought which approach It and to Invite ant enter tain cheerful broad and whplesome thoughts instead just as wp over come tones and cultivate musipal ones in educating the voice for staging When we once realize that by driv ing away pessimistic angry and bitter thoughts we drive away sickness and misfortune to a great extent and that by seeking the kinder and happier frame of mind we seek at the same time success and health and good luck we will find a new Impetus In the con trol of our mental forces For we all love to be paid for our worthy deedseven while we believe in being good for goods sake only And nothing in life is surer than this Right thinking pays large dividends o BUMPER CORN

PROHIBITION TERRITORY IS ESTIMATED AT 40000000 Nearly 40000000 people In the United now live In Prohibition terrl tory At first glance the above statement made by Dr P A Baker general su perintendent of the Anti Salocrr League may seem extravagant but Dr Baker says It is based upon acv curate figures compiled In the league departments and that the number Is swelling dally Few people realize that the temperance wave has swept over the country In the past few years with such persistent vigor that now onehalf the population of the United States Is situated In territory where the saloon Is forbidden The temper nce people of this country have been closing saloons In the United States at the rate of 30 day during the year 1908 said Dr Baker and I believe will continue at that rate during the rest of the year About 8000000 people abolished saloons last year and I am confident that this year those figures will be duplicated It is not fully realized by the general public that the temperance movement has been so universally successful as it has Partly by State abolition of sa loons and to a greater degree by lo cal option the prohibition territory of the United States has been increased until there are now 40000000 people living In places where the saloon Is forbidden Eight states are in the putI1600 saloons In one day The Antisaloon League is not In terested In partisan

Farmer Will Grow Average Of 200 Bush To Acre Kernel Four Times Siz9t Of Ordinary Grain SEED SELLS FOR 500 POUND f Exchange tell the avertoIf some one were to age wheat farmer that it was possible toraise a wheat crop on United States farms In one year of 6000000 would brand his formant 000 bushels he as a liar pure and simple and yet Had the tanners in America wonderful new wheat seed planted a that has been perfected by Abraham that is just Adams of Julietta Idaho would have been this what the yield r season based upon the probable crop of the year- Connected with this assertion is the greatest wheat story that has ever been told far greater than the wildest dreams of the wheat king in the security of his vast domain and the demand for his golden harvest The United States paid 80000000 for Alaska and yet the great gold payment Alaska has return sinks into Insignificance when compared with Farmer Adams Alaska wheat which in the secret and faraway fields of idaho be Has gradually brought to perfection until he has given to the world a wheat that will grow under average conditions 200 bushels to the acre This is a large assertion and hardly believable were it not for the fact that It is backed up by surveys of of threshers and the land and output yield and quality backed up by the Idaho Experiment Station at Moscow Idaho and being followed up by other to make a test to stations all eager beat the yield of the see If they can originatorThe is only a part of the great discovery for this Alaska wheat Is and spring wheat and both a winter either is a hard When planted as wheat that will grade as No1 Im winter wheat for thehardagine a great soft wheat belts of the country which with this new wheat can compete with the hard wheat lands of the great Northwest- A brief history of this almost mirac ulous seed is given in a few words by its modest originator ia plain man who farms in aplain way but who all t his life until old age has lived with and for his wheat and has finally given the world the greatest gift anyone man has ever been responsible for Mr Adams first perfect head of to realization In 1901 wheat came from an experimental plant of the spring of that year This one head he planted that fall as winter wheat r and the next year he secured seven pounds of seed from that planting From the seven pounds planted in the spring of 1906 he harvested 1545 pounds an increase of over 222 times of 222 bushels to or a basic principle the acre Here comes another re- V markable story of this wonderful j 1545 pounds were sowed in the fall and that summer there were ter rifle hailstorms which put the club and Blue Stem wheat so much to the JIbad that many fields were never har yet from the Alaska wheat tplots there were gathered a crop which Ureshed out 53000 pounds J t1 This when all other wheat was ren dered practically worthless t At about this time the Idaho station became Interested in the wheat and asked to make a test Mr Adams fcarried a sample to the station at- c Moscow and after a most thorough test received the following reply tf Regarding the analysis made upon Hake sample of Alaska wheat which Ixybu brought to this laboratory I have this to say The kernels from the fall sown wheat were plump and sound Hand doubtless will grade as No1 Judging from the chemical and physi- calL- condition of this sample I will 4lgr it will probably take rank with best grade of Blue Stem for flour IDaking purposes The sample grown from the springsown wheat showed by chemical analysis a somewhat protein content this being an 1higher of its probable strength for nraking purposes I am in clined to think that the wheat you have here is equal if not superior to our Blue Stem for flourmaking pur poses I should like to make a millI test whenever you can send sufficient t quantity for that purpose Very truly J S JONES Chemist In appearance the standing wheat Is strong and vigorous with a corn- like growth Its head in the bearing part is about four inches long or over that and an inch to an Inch and a half broad at its broadest part The kernel is about four times the size of hard wheat and a clear light cream color without a dark spot as clean as hulled peanuts in color It is most absolutely frost protected and lit would be a hard frost that would tOuchJ ttJtrainessmlke impervious ofto an ight hall It is originally grown on high dry unirrigated land and will stand drought as no known wheat will Add all these qualities to i enormous yielding propensities and it must be admitted that the world has been turned topsy turvey so far as wheat raising is concerned California where so much soft wheat Is grown Is beginning to take up the Alaska wheat for they see th opportunity of a hard wheat yield Farmers in Missouri and the East- and in old farms way out in Idaho Southern farmers who think the wheat can be raised with success are beginning to think of what is in store for them when some neighbor con vinces them by making a first trial that the wonderful Alaska wheal story is not as much a fabrication as the first story of seedless oranges was thought to be The wheat world is trembling on the verge of a new era one in which the man with a hundred acres suddenly finds his farm in creased in area to a thousand acres by the discovery of one the South where soft wheat is all that As a last test Mr Adams has sent single heads of wheat to other part of the country where he had men he could trust to plant and ascertain the result Reports are Just coming to him and he finds that in other States his Alaska wheat does better than an Its home soil In Alabama a head was planted December 31 was up January 30 waist high April 1 with leaves seveneighths of an inch broad and July 7 was harvested It vsbowoc to be hard wheat of a fine quality and the one head yielded the same as the first head planted in Idaho One Oregon experimental station of fered the originator 5 for a pound ol his wheat a rate of over 300 a bushel The old gentleman did not prize the money He only wanted tt be sure that some attache was noi striving to get away some of his seed He required a contract that the State would not dispose of any wheat used- n the test and upon securing that sent the seed asked for along Now the United States experimenters are becoming interested and next years report will have much to say about Abraham Adams and his wheat and the old gentleman will at one step ome as much into prominence as Luther Burbank who although ac complishing hundreds of miracles with growing things has bedn eclipsed by this man who has done what the average farmer will believe is an impossibility o Traction Company Mortgages Holdings In order to rise money to complete Improvements and

up 350 a week and expenses to take 200 for for the purpose of helping McKinley I also did all that I could for Roose velt But I will raise no hand against Bryan in this campaign My first reason for not doing so is that Bryan stands for all that is best in the Roosevelt policy Second Bryan and Roosevelt are both opposed by the same outlaw truststhe Guffeys Sul Ivans and the boss Tammanyltes
