Grand Central Station last evening Five of them were so badly hurt that Doctor Kearns railroad surgeon and Dr T C Minor who were soon on the scene und a heavy task before them in ministering to the wounded The men most seriously Injured are Captain Jackson Morris of Frankfort Internally Sergeant Wiley Morris Me IWprter ribs probably broken Lieutenant Foster Helm Lexington back wrenched Captain Felix Kerick of Louisville head and neck bruised W H Ratcliff Lexington cuts on side and right leg- Nineteen men were on the special car attached to train No 32 ot the Louisville Nashville division The train left Lexington at 240 p m and was due to reach Cincinnati at 610 p m It came In only two minutes late and was backing down track No preparatory to stopping when Con ductor Sorrell saw there was some thing wrong Instead of slowing down the momentum of the train increased las it neared the station The conduc tor called on the air brakes but they failed to respond In desperation he rushed to the rear platform and frantically twisted the hand brake This failed to have any effect and with the train moving at the rate of eight or ten miles an hour and the seven cars dragging the engine it crashed into the bumper with such force that it shook the entire station Several of the soldiers were on the rear platform and seeing what was coming braced themselves and so es coped Injury but those on the inside were all more or less bruised in addition to the five men who were more seriously hurt Passengers in the for ward cars were also badly shaken up and several of them sustained slight impact was so great that the heavy bumper was wrenched from its foundation the big Iron braces bent and twisted Among the Kentucky riflemen were many of the most prominent young men in the State under

Julia Hopple South and her mother Mrs Hopple have gone to Covington to make their home Mrs South recently filed suit for divorce from her husband Sam South IMrs Wm T Barret loft Monday for Wequetonsing Mich where she will remain until early in the fall MUST SUE To Get Money Appropriated By Legislature Normal School And State University Bill Will Have Tofio Through Court of Appeals ATTORNEYGENERAL SO ADVISES Sult must be brought to determine the constitutionality the act appro- prIating half a million dollars to the State university and the two normal schools before the State Auditor will pay any of the money which was ap propriated Attorney General James Breathitt Friday afternoon gave his opinion to the Auditor in which he says that such grave doubt exists as to the constitutionality of the act and the right of the Legislature to appropriate money without submitting the question to the vote of the people that he would advie a friendly suit before any payment is made The At torney General does not say that the act is unconstitutional but advises the Auditor not to pay the money even the annual appropriation for the State university until the Court of Appeals has passed on the act The opinion of the Attorney General means that the three educational Institutions cannot get the money ap propriated until the Court of Appeals has passed on the constitutionality of the act and it will require several months for the case to be reached In the highest court The delay need not be long as Judge Breathitt points out in his opinion but he suggests that it would be best to wait until after the courts have passed on the case Frank P James the State Au ditor will hold up the warrants which haver been drawn on the Treasurer until after a decision by the Court of Appeals and will refuse to pay the money By the act of last session the larg est appropriation ever made for educational purposes was made The act appropriated half a million dollars to the State university and the normal schools and increased the annual ap propriations of the three institutions by 70000 The bill was hard fought In the House and was passed only after a bitter contest The Governor was about to veto the act but finally was prevailed upon to sign it When the time came to draw the appropria tion for annual maintenance the State university ran into another snag the Auditor refused to pay the money holding that there was doubt about the power of the Legislature to make the appropriation It was the extra annual appropriation for the State uni versity which caused the appeal to the Attorney General The university wanted the money which was to be paid out of the money for the current fiscal year In his opinion the Attorney Gener al says that the money for the schools and for the university must be paid out of the general expense fund and no special fund can be set aside even If the appropriation is legal He also holds that the appropriation cannot take precedence over the money nec essary for the other expenses of the State and if there is no money left after the expenses of the State have been paid then the schools would have to go without The whole ques tion is now to be threshed over in the courts o Miss Ruth Jilson has returned from Versailles where she was the guest of Miss Virginia Thompson Mrs Jno W Gaines entertained as her guests during the week Mr and Mrs Harry Sharp of St Louis Miss Bonnie Mitchell spent the week in Versailles as the guest of Miss Ethel Olson v y t 1 WSE Suggested For Famous Old State House May Be Occupied By Court Of Appeals Governor Favors The Pro posed Plan UNSETTLED STATE A s been found for the old StatetH M and the suggestion comes frdl ess an authority tha Gov A JBKvilson It is proposed to remodel old refit the inside of the old building and have it used exclusively by the Court of Appeals as a temple of Justice The suggestion Is that the court take over the entire building which couldbe changed Inside to suit the needs of the court at a cost of not more than 10000 and use it as the Supreme Court of the United States uses Its portion of the Capitol at Washington This plan would Insure the preservation of the building and would put the Court of Appeals where It is much easier to reach than if the court had the quarters provided in the new Capitol This whole matter will be submitted to the Court of Appeals as soon as the judges return from their summer vaca tions At present the plan is in no definite form and has not been con sidered seriously but there is said to be good prospects that the suggestion made by the Governor will be car ried out It has been talked about be fore but nothing came from an authoritative source concerning such a us for the old building Now that the Governor has expressed his approval of such a plan it is probable that the suggestion will be considered se riouslyBy some changes in the in ternal arrangement of the old building it could be perfectly adapted to the uses of the court It has been sug gested that the Senate chamber be changed so as to make the floor level some of the windows cut down so as to give more light and this room used by the court when on the bench The House chamber could be used as- a consultation room and the present court room could be used by the clerk of the court whocould spread out considerably and have much more room than he has at present law library would be allowed to re main as It Is now with Frank Kavan augh the librarian in charge as at present The reference library and such books as would be used by the Legislature or tho various branches of tho State departments would be lo cated in the new capitol as planned at present The Supreme Court has settled self in the central portion of the new capitol at Washington and is complete master of that part of the capitol one a is allowed to make any changes without permission from the court Gov Wlllson was telling a story about this the other day when he wa talking about the plan to have the Kentucky Court of Appeals use th old State House One day the architect Ml the caps tol went into the Supreme Courtrooms to make some change said the Governor The chief officer of the court stopped the architect and asked him what he was doing 1 n there He replied that he was the architect of tHe capitol and proposed making some changes- If you do not want to go to Jail for contempt you had better get out of here the officer said If you want to make any change in this part of the building you will have to lay the matter before the court and they will tell you what to do The court controls this and will not allow anyone to interfere with its rights The court has settled Itself there and rules with a rod of iron continued the Governor and the Court fi Wi ifbif i of Appeals might do the same thing wth this old building The people will never permit its being destroyed and It eh9 l be put to BomeuseIt seems to me that the b P JRWrc use for It would be to have the Court of Appeals here The building looks like a temple of Justice with its col umns in front and it would make an Ideal place for the court Owing to the distance from the main hotels and the railroad station it is thought that the location of the Court of Appeals In the new capitol is going to prove inconvenient for the lawyers who practice before the court Many of them come up on the morning trains and have only a short time here It Is easy for them to reach the court now and they are going to find it inconvenient when they have to go to the south side to reach the court rooms It is said that the judges of the court hate to leave their present quarters and that they would favor staying in the State House- Handsome quarters for the court have been prepared in the new capi tol and It was expected that the court isnaccording the plans of the Capitol Commission which built the new cop it How ever the proposed chajge would be easily made Frank Kavanaugh has twD assistants In the library and his assistants could easily attend to the reference library which would be in the new capitol This would leave Mr Kavanaugh free to attend to the law library which is the most Im portant branch of the library The whole question has been presented- a yet only tentatively but some thing may come of It EDWARD L SAMUEL DIES OF OLD AGE PRESIDENT NATIONAL BRANCH BANK OF KENTUCKY PASSES AWAY Grief over the death of his wife and the infirmities incident to old age caused the death early Friday morning of Edward L Samuel one of the oldest and most respected citl ezees of Frankfort He passed away at his home the end coming peace fully Mr Samuel was 81 years old and since the death of his wife one year ago has never been the same He had no children but several nephews and nieces he had reared are left to mourn him Mr Samuel has been president of the National Branch Bank of Ken tucky since it was made into ana tional bank In his early life he was in the grocery business in Frankfort where he was born and reared He went to Louisville and took a position with the Bank of Kentucky some years before the war Later he came back to FranKfort as cashier of

MM a Occupied Cannot Be Finished Before Next Spring Power House Will Require Six Months rl NO PLANS NOW FOR THE DEDICATION J Instead of occupying the new capi tol In September it is now practically certain that the new building will not be used until next spring and possl bly not until summer when there Is no need for fires It will bo at least six months before the power plant and heating apparatus Is stalled and until the heating plant i is ready for use the building can not be occupied Ground has not et been broken for the power plant and It will require 120 working days to complete this plant This is four ninths not including Sundays or holidays and when it rains work will stop As rain is to be expected during the next few months frequentnly It means that the power plant willanot be completed In less than six months That would throw the com pletion of the plant into February arid even then many things will be necessary before tho building can be r4usedWe delayed too long that Is all there is to It said Frank P James State Auditor and a member of the Capitol Commission We should have let the contract for the power plant as soon as the Legislature ad journed last winter If we had done that we might bo able to get into t the building this fall but we will be lucky now If we get it ready for use by next spring Mr James and Capt Ed Farley State Treasurer also a member pt the Commission were asked if they had taken up the plans for the dedi buildingVhat talking about dedication now when we can rat dedicate the building for nearly a year they replied The building can not be used until the power plant is ready for it will be cold and we would have no way to heat the build ing Then they have to dig a tun nel and If the weather Is bad as It will be It will delay that work So that it will be in February before the power plant Is completed if It is finished at that time Frankfort people are much disap pointed that the handsome new capi tol is not to be used this winter It was expected that the building would be furnished within the next few weeks and would be occupied by the first of November Now the an nouncement is made that the commis sion does not hope to have the build ing ready for use before spring and Frankfort is sorry The present Capitol Commission is trying its best to get things finished and regrets the delay but regards it as unavoid able now Ffo Man Will Recover Without a Stomach As operation that is rarely perform ed was made several days ago at St Josephs hospital in Lexington when the stomach of Richard Gen try of

McClure Department Store will occupy the first three floors and the Basement and the building was erected with this in view Mr Mc Clure believes that Frankfort is large I enough to support a department store of the kind found in Louisville and his faith in the city Is being given a trial which will prove that he Is right The new building is modern r iif every respect and is expressly adapted to the needs of the kind of a store McClure Sons Intend to establish Every bit of floor space in the new founding is now taken and all the the offices will be occupied as soon as- the building

the story of a convict and the way in which he is treated bythe guards and pr Qnof licials The story must have been written some time ago or treats of a prison which Is antiquated The story tells of the lock step and the prison odor which comes the author says from many animals being caged together Life in the prison is described in a grewsome and horrible way and the system of spies and espionage by trusties is dwelt upon at great length No 9009 went into the prison with the Intention of obeying the rules and trying to earn his good time but he has Incurred the enmity of one of the guards who tries to trip him up and break him In few details would the story apply to the penitentiary here In this penitentiary as in nearly every one in the country the lock step is no longer used It has been abolished almost everywhere In the modern way of handling criminals with some idea of reforming them The Frankfort penitentiary also has no prison odor The prison is kept clean and there Is no odor of any kind In the n cell house Confining many men together In a large room or caging p them as the story writer puts It does not produce an odor The odor came from lack of cleanliness and nothing else and the Frankfort penitentiary being clean has not that odor A man over at Lawrenceburg who served a year In the penitentiary here loft inuch pleaoed with the way things were run and said to a casua rac quaintance after being released If a man wants a quiet comfortable place to lIve w4th pretty good food he should vgo to the penitentiary It IsaU right down there Another thing that is dwelt uppp In the story The dungeon is described as horrible It is depicted as a plic ofmoQth ft gl lXrk s total bllndtresS fclth iaUo rfiSt ex cept on a steel floor In the Frank fort penitentiary there is a dungeon but there is a cot in It and bedding and one can lie down sleep In is dark very dark and sound proof but it can not be so bad for one man stayed there for forty days and forty nights without giving up and going to work Many things about a penitentiary are not known and understood and there are many kinds of prisons and runny kinds of keepers Under Col E E Mudd a convict who behaves himself and works need not fear anything o That old story about W S Taylor coming back to Kentucky has been revived again by the Louisville Post which is always starting something Gav Wlllson says he knows nothing about it and it looks like another one of the usual fakes which the Post Is In the habit of printing Taylor Is not coming back until Gov Willson sends a requisition for him and it does not matter much whether he comes or not as the Governor has ready indicated that a pardon is ready for him and also Finley Gov Willson said when he pardoned Powers and Howard that he believes Youtsey alone responsible for the kill lug of Goebel This certainly relieves Taylor from responsibility and he should not be afraid to return to Ken tuckyIo The Louisville base ball team is playing the same kind of ball as that played by the Frankfort aggregation and in both cities the home crowds are rooting for the pennant believing that the home team will land it Kentuckans generally are pulling for Louisville to win and In Frankfort there is almost as much interest in the race as there is in Louisville a Judge Taft Is going to stay jn Cin cinnati this fall and will not snake a tour of the country telling the peo pIe why he should be elected Presl dent He is going to try the HcKln ley plan of campaigning When a man is as poor a speaker as Judge Taft it Is not a bad plan o Mr Bryan knows just hoWl to receive the formal notification of his nomination as the Democratic candidate for President having had p rience This last was his third ap pearance In the role of leading man in a performance of that character o The McClure building looks good to everybody who comes to Frankfort and strangers are greatly Impressed by it The building niarksa long step in advance for Frankfort It would be a credit to any pity in Ken tucky even Louisville a The Optimist OJBy A R This Is the season of the county fair that queer Institution originally Intended to promote and encourage the breeding of fine stock but now diverted Into competition by profes sional showers of horses and cattle Some thousands of persons dress themselves in their best bib and tuck er go out to the fair grounds and tramp aimlessly about roUnd and round and up and down while the band plays and the music box with the flying dutchman grinds out bad music In the ring are sundry horses or cows that nobody pays much attention to them unless it is a roadster ring in which case as there is a possibility of a spill and someone being Injured there is plenty of attention given the show Things have changed at the coun ty fair tl is not what Jt used to be In the older days the people went to stay all day and see the stock and see each other There P were few or no slde ttra dons and the stock wits the mala and most Important thing Noj me people go to see the crowd and the dozens of sideshows which Operate on the grounds It takes wild animal shows wild west Shows Ferris wheels and Sundry other shows of Snore or less merit to draw out the crowd and even then the people do not go until after dinner They gp qutfora few hours In the afternoon and the old time way of serving dinner to ones family and friends on the grounds- Is almost a th of dinners were great thSThosewent to one once gotten it Especially has he not for gotten the pie It was at Fern Creek near Louis ville Governor Joe Blackburn was to speak there and it was to be a sort of political gathering The fair was oldfashioned The products of the soil were shown in competition and the horses were not the main attrae tion The Optimist went to the fair on a tallyho with a crowd from Louis vine which escorted Gov Blackburn It was hot and dusty and everybody was worn out when the fair grounds were reached after a long drive The Optimist climbed down off that tally ho and looked around f HAcquaIn tance He failed to Hbody that he knew and thejH P sign of a place where on something to eat The H plenty to eat there but very r was a private one and one neeWd an Invi tat on to eat before one could sit down to the tables of plenty The timist was hungry and was roaming aimlessly wishing he was at home when a stunning looking girl rushed up and said Why Mr Optimist Lam so glad to see you t The Optimist was gl dto see her too although he did not know who she was He expressed his pleasure- In a listless sort of way however for it was food he wanted- I want you to take dinner with us here said the girl Life immediately assumed a more rosy hue to the Optimist and he told the girl again that he was glad to see her unusually glad That dinner was a thing long to be remembered After many things that were good they worked down to pie There were two kinds of pie Both kinds looked good and The Optimist chose a kind with which he was familiar After eating a target piece of this kind he was urged to eat another kind He did so and that pie stands out In prominent bas relief whenever pie is mentioned The name of the pie was not descriptive It did not identify the pie That is one could not tell from the name what were the Ingredients of the pie It was something like cold water pie or something of that kind But good well It made every kind of pie taste less and nothing like it ever passed down the throat of the Optimist It was black looking and thick and rich and with a peculiar flavor that reached the right spot That was several years agog The Optimist has been trying ever since to find out the name of that pie and get some more like it but he has never succeeded and perhaps itpis just as well The next piece of pie like that might not taste so good and he would have v pleasant memory spoiled e One thing one finds at the country Pairs In Kentucky that can not be found any other place In this country and that is flvegalted saddle horses The gaited horses belong to Ken tucky and no other State produces or uses to any great extent the real saddle horse At every fair in this State the show of galtedhorses is one of the main attractions and at any of the fairs one can see a ring of this class of horses that is better than one can find any other place in the country It Is common to see from six to ten horses in one ring for this tpye of animal yet one can find them nowhere else The biggest horse show In the country is at Madi son Square Garden In New York One year they had a class for gaited horses and had only three entries The Easterner does not know the gaited horse He rides a walktrot horse that jolts him to death and thinks his having a good time He j r t does not know the Joy SIt a fast rack or the delights of a good runnirtgi walk The gaited horse has every thing that the threegalled horse pas and more Yet the Easterner who has the moat money for horses and who does most tq control the market Uses the three galted hoseand cannot be persuaded that the other ijtojse Is best because he has tot rlddehfpe betterjvind The gaited saddle se which Is also adaptable to harness Is the poetry and Is tea perfection of horse flesh The goad ofICommon and there are not even in Kentucky which go into a ring and be shown If the demand at the auction block was greater here would be more of this type aiul the Easterner would be a convert to a real saddle horse o TELLS FARMERS How They Can Increase Profits of Farm INSTITUTE BEGINS AT GLEN WOOD PARK WITH GOOD ATTENDANCE Franklin

practically his opening t speech in advocacy of his candidacy r for the Democratic nomination for Congress from the Ashland District Senator J Campbell Cantrlll spoke to a small audience at Millersburg Monday afternoon His speech was forceful and at times eloquent his claims for the fice being based upon his attitude for the last two years as an expounder of the principles of the Society of Equity 4c Senator Cantrill spoke of his father as a native son of Bourbon and his great grandfather on his mothers side Barton W Stone who made Cane Ridge this county fam ous in 1803 as the place where the Christian Church was founded j The Senator said he proposed to pitch his canvas for the office upon a high plane and not indulge In any personal criticism of his opponent He went for the committee who as the governing authority of the party was composed of the personal and political friends of his opponent and t Who at the bidding of Congressman Kimball had called a primary elec tion for May 12 as the best means of forcing a renomination and of thwarting the will of the people The Senator said he did not object toa primary election it being just F1what he and his friends desired but he did object to the early date an nounced the money qualification im posed and the subcommittee of three of Mr Kimballs personal friends to carry out the details of the primary After the call had been announced and he the Senator had entered uv on a vigorous campaign in Owen and 4i Henry counties und was making great headway it suddenly dawned upon the Kimball committee that in order to make sure of a forced renomlna tion and disfranchisement of the farm ers the great majority of whom lived miles from the county seats mass conventions were called which would be dominated and controlled by city politicians Senator Cantrill tarAupon entered the primary when less than 2000 would defray the cost of a A primary election in the entire district as a means of preventing any opposition to the ambition of Mr Kim ball Senator Cantrill said he had Vnot been consulted by tlie committee every act had been to pre vent opposition to Mr Kimball and l he called upon his hearers to resent their action and put an end to future political schemes that left the peo pIe out of the reckoning hadjaball is returned to Congress the Lex ington cotorle of politicians would send Judge B F Hill of Henry county to Congress the next time He scored Judge Hill as being the arch enemy of the Equity movement and the tool of Lexington politicians He said that his opponent had but a few days ago mad ea red hot g Equity speech in Owen county and then a few days later rode over Henry county wItha Mr Tingle who was a violent enemy of the Equity society and who was growing 30 acres of to bacco guarded by Willsons soldiers He called upon Mr Kimball to declare himself on the issue involved and say r whether he was for or against the Equity movement Senator Cantrill then paid his respects to the city of Lexington which from the start of the Equity movement two years ago had done every thing in its power to break down the cause of the farmers When Fayette county farmers were trying to organize they called upon every city and county official tomake a speech personallyhraise Ls hand in advocacy of the farmers rights and ho declined saying that It was another Hawkins move ment Senator Cantrill showed how Lexington Invited the reactionary fel lows to bring their tobacco there and sell It and fearful of the righteous Indignation of the people im plored a Republican Governor to vend a galling gun which for weeks inir- uttI j iJtah i polnte4pt thebest people on earth- In a movement for bread and meat Senator Cnntrill said in refutation of the charge that he made no speeches during the campaign of last- year that he was busy making speeches for the Equity movement which was for he upbuilding of the material welfare and happiness of thousands of Kentuckians and de clared that If sent to Congress he would use his salary for the furtherance of this grand cause which meant the salvation of the farmers o SI DUVALL DEAD Si Duvall aged 40 years passed his home In Stamplnound SuncHfBW

lived at the present time and he could have found the man for whom he was look ing by going to Ohio county The honest man is named Hunt but unfortunately his given name is lost Hunt collected money from Ohio county for sheep killed and injured by dogs which invaded his flock reo cently One sheep was injured so badly that the appraisers fixed the value of the sheep regarding it at a total loss The sheep Instead of dy ing recovered and Hunt returned the 5 which he bad collected from the county for that sheep The following Is a letter which was receiv ed this week by Auditor Frank James Hartfort Ky Aug 7 1908 Mr James Enclosed you will find my check for S5 which amount was this day left me by a Mr Hunt of this county who had a claim allowed by our court for sheep killed and injured by dogs Mr Hunt informed me thane of the sheep was appraised for 5 as worthless in fact it was thought at tho time that the sheep would die but the injury proved of little or no damage at all and it fully recovered In about one week and is now the best sheep in the flock Mr Hunt said that he did not consider himself entitled at all to the 5 and left it with me instructing me to do with It ap I

ever produced according to M C Rankin Commissioner of Agriculture who says that tho rains of last Saturday will make one of the biggest crops Kentucky has known Mr Rankin says that the rain made the crop where the fields had been properly jultivated but where the weeds had been allowed to grow the rain did ao good The rain seems to have been general over Kentucky and has made the corn crop for the most of the farmers Mr Rankin says he has found that many of the farmers have not cultivated their corn properly and In many instances the cornfields are rank with weeds a Cured Hay Fever and

important meeting of the Burley Tobacco Society is insession aL Vin Chester with most t r the cou resented The sessions have b cupled in hearing the statistical re ports from the counties The secretary reports that nearly 40000 hogsheads of the 1906 crop have been sold leaving about 12000 hogsheads of that crop unsold This is all of th higher grades from 18 cents up The 1907 crop is not in the hogsheads yet but it is being rapidlj packed This crop is estimated at about 90000 hogsheads 85 par cent- of which is in the pool The remain- Ing 15 per cent has been sold by the growers who did not pool The crop of 1907 Is being rapidly prepared for market and as soon as possible the samples will be sent here to be typed and classified The croP of 1908 will a from 8000 to 10000 hogs many of these growers ar to pool this crop either fr to reap the benefits of tluj fear of the vengeance o night riders when the crop shallbe placed In the barn and whether or not they will be admitted to the pool will be determined at this meeting The question of fixing a price or the crop of 1907 will also be discussed There is a desire on the part of some to make a decided Increase In the price claiming that the law of supply and demand justifies it On the other hand many claim that the Burley Society was organized simply to obtain a living price for the grower and no advantage shpuld be taken of the situation As the crop is much better than that of the previous year the average price will be higher even if graded on the same basis The method of financing the crop ol 1907 will remain the same as that of 1906 The board of contol of eac- Bounty will have charge of financing the crop of that county As the time of the year is nearly here vhen farmers will make contracts for next year the question of what the society pro poses to do will pobably be discussed It is felt that it will hardly be possible to restrict the crop of 1909 and effort will be directed to pontrolllng the sale of ItOther questions will also be dis cussed The board will be in session a day or two before finishing their work At a night session of the Burley Tobacco Society a resolution was passed refusing to allow those who have raised a crop In 1908 over the protests of the Equity people to pool these crops The attitude of the Burley Society to the crop of 1909 was discussed at length but definite action on the matter was postponed until after the election of officers in October a Colored Fair Will Be a Big Success The third annual fair of the Frank lin County Colored Agricultural and Industrial Association

Judge for the Fifth District These proposed rates which ha- vlz e 1 now been put into effect contem t Lj plated an advance of 3 cents per hun dred pounds on packing house pro ducts and fresh meat and 2 cents per IfI hundred pounds on grain hay flour and other mill products This amount does not increase the earnings of the railroad very much I but we did not desire to make the i advance ao large as to be in any way ii burdensome The advance is In i fact Insignificant as applied to each consumer The average consumption wheat in the United States is 275 IIiIof per capita per annum and an of 2 cents per hundred In the rate of freight means f only 6 cents per capita per annum ff You will appreciate that this increase IiI idlBtrlbuted over the entire population Iiitt individually but in the

railroads as business f organizations and as mediums through Which a large amount of money Is distributed through the I country i In publlBHltig the new tariffs the sutb ft witted to nine months of depressed business hoping that conditions would 1i revive or that prices on materials flti jjii would be reduced sufficiently to afford enough revenue over and above the actual cost of conducting transporta lion to enable the track forces to be fully maintained and the repair shops to be operated on full time The monthly reports however will show that these hopes were not realized The railroad officials responsible for the maintenance and operation of these properties must be allowed to proceed in accordance with business methods and while according the fullest publicity must be permitted to exercise their own judgment in bringing about more satisfactory ser vice from year to year Regardless of the motive Inspiring the construction of the various railroads of the country whether that motive was to build a competing linen order to sell out at a high price whether It was intended as a connect Ing link between two other lines of railway or for the purpose of develop ing a part of the country hitherto not reached by railroad communication or for any other reason the final net result is that a railroad is simply an improved means of communication be forIfanner laborer anti of every shipper rland receiver To say that a railroad is simply means of communication Is not sufficient because navigable streams and the highways have always furnished communication between dlf ferent points It Is only because the railway Is an Improved method of moving freight from point to point or of transporting passengers from one part of the country to the other that It has reached Its present Important position In the development of the country If the members of every business community could not only realize but could keep constantly before them them the fact that a railroad Is slm ply a means by which they can con venlently reach other markets and it is to their Interest to see that the machinery of a railroad Is as perfect as1 possible there would be far more cordial feeling between the public and the railways It has been said that a community without a railroad will do anything to secure pne and after It has secured a railroad will do anything to It A community the members of which do not travel and neither ship nor receive freight is of no value whatever to railways The only way in which a railroad can properly earn money Is by transporting pas sengers and freight and In one Im portant respect the operation of a railway is absolutely different from the operation of any other business or even of a household In the operation oC ia commercial enterprise the beginnings are usually snuill and the expenses to a very large extent can be regulated by the income A reduction In prices or In the volume of business can be followed or anticipated by a reduction In the forces employed Jn the purchase of supplies and material and In other ways which are not available to a transportation company It is true that there are always fixed charges to be considered In the co duct of any business but In construe ing and operating a railway the fixed charges such as Interest on the money borrowed for and used In the construction of the road and the purchase of Its equipment and second the salaries and wages paid for t operation and maintenance of the rat way are the moat serious responsiblll ties In other words whereas in a large number of business houses and general household operations of t country the expenditures tare regu fated tO the income In the case of a railroad Income must be obtained to pay the expenses oYu can therefore realize hQw ab surd It Is for any one to say t- hatiiiii any railroad management is trying to throttle an Industry by excessive rates or inefficient service Keeping in mind that the only means a railroad has for obtaining money to meet ex penses and the payment of these In terest charges Is from the transpor tation of freight tlld passengers It must be evident that the railroad ficials must of necessity be con stantly on the lcokout for new traffic and for additional means of Increas g the volume of traffic already ndled Must if not all of the laws which ve been passed for the purpose of egula ng railroad freight and pas senger rates have been drafted under the mistaken impression that there is at all times accessible every rail road a large volumeLof business awaiting to be transported If this were true it would not be necessary for the railroads to maintain a traffic department and aa railroad does maintain a trafficdepartment and employs a large number of repre sentatives whose duty It is to keep in touch with the business conditions It may be safely concluded that they ore doing so because the management realizes that traffic is a thing to be fostered and built up and does not ready exist in large volume fur which it Is only necessary to provide cars and service The difference between rates estab li shed by acts of Legislature and those established by the railroad companies Is simply tats The rates of the Legislature do not take into account the commercial conditions which vary from year to year and sometimes from month to month whereas the rates made by the traffic fcials of a railroad ate primarily based on commercial conditions and are changed as commercial conditions made by acts of Legislature are very much like a clock that will not run Such a clock can never be right more than twice in twentyfour hours and all the rest of the time it Is wrong Rates made by acts of Leg islature are sometimes right but are usually wrong The only way In which traffic of ficials can Induce the maximum amount of traffic is by so adjusting the rfates as to permit the shipper to meet at the point of destination the competition of other business centers Not only must the rate be adjusted so as to be satisfactory to the consumer but It must also be satis factory to the producer and must also be so fixed that the volume of busi thae several centers of production and the several carriers but It trust not be understood that the traffic Interests of any large railroad are dependent upon the Intelli gence of only one or two men Every railroad has a large number of traffic representatives These men ate stationed in different parts of the country The larger the railroad the more representatives It has and the more complete are its means of ob talnng information as to business conditions not only for the present but for the future as far as they can be through the medium of traffic associations and regular meet ings of these traffic asociations tin officials of the different railroads terchange views and discuss con- ditons so that the official of one road really has the benefit not only of the Information furnished by his own rep resentatlves but the information furnished by representatives of all other lines interested in the same traffic By this means errors of judgment of one man are corrected by the Information obtained by another With the possible exception of the business agencies such as Duns or Bradstreets there Is no more com plete organization in the country than the traffic organization of the railways The information as to the business conditions Is obtained not only from the traffic representatives stationed at the large commercial centers bUt the status of trade in the smaller places is ascertained through travel Ing representatives while Immediately upon the railroad Itself the actual business offering for shipment day by day the requests for cars and the detailed operation of the road const tutu a barometer which is Invaluable As I have said before In the attempted regulation of railroad rates mlna take is made in assuming that there is always available a large volume of traffic ready to move Of course large Commercial centers constant ly produce freight of one kind or aheof ll road except In limited quantities The socalled local traffic of a railroad Is that which originates at or Is destined to a strictly local sta transportationhe of a tlons these local stations recess ar Uy depend upon the railroad- It Is the constant effort of every railroad through Its freight and passenger departments and through Its Industrial department to lo- cateI1Ii a large amount of material or manufac tured articles which will afford means trafficbutthe development of local traffic of this growthVeryare residential communities only and neither produce nor consume a large amount of freight The quantity of freight Is so small that no reduction- n rate can have any appreciable ef fect towards Increasing the volume nor as a matter of fact would an c the fclght charges un les Increase Is extremely un re able have much effect In de creasing the volume- A small flour mill for Instance operating at a country point draws Its supply of wheat from the surrounding country by wagons manufactures the wheat Into flour and either sells It locally to a wagon trade or ships a few barrels at a time to points within fifty or a hundred miles The flour mills employ only two or three men some of the small mills being operated by a man and a boy and therefore this industry is net ther a producer of freight or pas senger revenue except to a very limit ed extent It can be clearly seen that no reduction In the passenger fares will result In Increasing the amount of Indulged In by these two or Jen and again no reduc t eight rates will induce a ement of flour from this m khe capacity will turnout Tbcondition is true as to a small sa lull having a local trade It Is foFthls reason that the earnings of a railroad on strictly local traffic and which is frequently limit ed to the boundaries of one State are absolutely Inadequate to pay the expense of operating the trains to say nothing of the cost of maintain ing the roadbed bridges trestles and station buildings It may be safely stated then that the strictly local business of a railroad Is not sufficient to pay the cost of main taming the railroad and that a large proportion of the cost of main taming and operating a railroad must be paid out of the proceeds on through traffic and on Interstate traf ficNot only does a railroad frequent ly have an industrial agent whose duty It Is to locate new industries but the operating and traffic depart ments are constantly working toward the development of local points with the hope that in the future the combined earnings on local through and interstate traffic will cover the cost of maintaining freight and pas senger service to and from such local stations Selfinterest therefore In duces a railroad to render as salts factory service to patrons at local points as at competitive points and to enable the manufacturing indus tries at local points to develop to thee fullest extent It is the usual rule to establish the same rates fro these local points on manufactured articles as from nearby competitive points In this way the manufac turer at the local point has the bene fit of competition between railroads it is perfectly manifest that a r dustier In the rate of freight doe not reduce the cost of operation but If the revenue of the road decreases the operating department is forced- Into economies resulting in unsatis factory station buildings and unsa isfactory service whIchIfering at the present tlme J I b Hove it to be true that the ratea o freight generally throughout the country are unnecessarily low but while we are handling a large vo ume of traffic made by the shippers and manufacturers generally were so large that they were able to the freight charges and perhaps some cases Invade other territories with their products in which under normal condition they could not ex best to compete Now that the volume of traffic ha decreased to what may be assume tabe only the necessary tonnage we tint after eight or nine months f experience that the revenue from the amount of traffic avuilab under these circumstances ia not su ficient to safely cover the minimum amount of expenses No railroad can operate witho a roadbed and this roadbed requires a certain expense to maintain i Every railroad must have reps shops either owned outright in whl to make repairs to locomotives an cars or must by contract provide for these repairs in some other shop A road no matter how small must have a certain organization A ro must be divided into sections each section in charge of a fore man the foreman having under h supervision a greater or leas number of men There must be a d partment In charge of bridges at there moat be a

they had no cause to be chesty for Frank fort only toyed with them and had the game at their mercy at all stages The score makes it look like a close and exciting game In point of fact it was not The Frankfort team was the master after the first inning when they put three runs across the plate and there never was much doubt about which side would win after that In lUng The Lawmakers gave the crowd a run for their money by ale lowing the visitors to tie the score In their half of the ninth and some of the Lawrenceburg rooters BIfcaly thought they had a chan But they didnt Frankfort thy run necessary to win v trouble and ended the g he way everybody thought It be In the first inning Fran rt scored three runs largely through the bad playing of OBannon who pitched him self into a hole Steele hit safely and was followed by Hoffman who bunted OBannon could not pick up the ball and Fritz was safe at first OBannon then passed Bohannon filling the sacks Zurlage hit safely to right and the ball was fumbled so that every body scored Bohannon putting on ex tra steam and beating the throwin After that the game was dull It looked like the score would be a big one and the crowd in the bleachers seriously discussed going home But OBannon steadied down and began pitching good ball He was effective any kept his head but the team be hind him did not give him good sup port Such playing as they did would have taken the heart out of many pitchers but OBannon worked on do ing the best he could In the fourth inning Hoffman land ed on the first ball pitched and drop ped it over the left field fence for a homer Later Yantz for Lawrence burg duplicated the performance the ball going almost in the same place as the one knocked by Hoffman The visitors missed their chance to win in the sixth old man Inability to Hit being on deck Yantz walked and went to second on Foxs hit Kelley walked filling the bases with nobody out It looked like Lawrenceburg would get at least two runs over and maybe more Cornell was soaring around in the clouds but he steadied down enough to strike out Lindsay But the next man went to first on four wide ones forcing in a run and leaving the bases still full with only one out The next man up for the visitors sent a feeble one to Cornell and a quick doubleplay resulted the side being retired with only the one run scored It was getting out of a bad hole luckily Lawrenceburg put two more across in the first half of the ninth by hard hitting and it looked like an extra inning or two The crowd which had started for the gate sol tied back against the fence pre pared to see more playing But Steele made his third hit and took second on a neat sacrifice by Hoff man He went to third on Bohannons long fly and scored the winning run when Zurlago put

FARMERS WOULD FIGHT TRUST WITH g ITS OWN WEAPONS No step taken since the formats of the Planters Protective Associatlo has been of more Importance than the move now on foot to establish a mam moth factory in the dark tobacco dis trict for the inanuracture of snuff The plan Is no s scheme to frighten the present manufacturers of snuff Into buy Ing tobacco controlled by the organi zation but Is a carefully planned business enterprise with solid sub stantial business men behind it who have made up their minds to see it go through before many months have passed The Idea Is one which should be lay ally supported by every man who be longs to the association both In spirit and in the more substantial way in helping it along financially to the ex tent of his ability It is desirable that the stock be taken not by the man of wealth who is In a position to invest large sums in tie concern but by the small Investor Every man in the dis tract should feel that the enterprise is his that ho is vitally interested in it because It represents to a certain ex tent his capital and his savings With such a spirit as this behind the project there Ie absolutely no doubt but that it will be one of the greatest successes in an Industrial way ever undertaken by the farmers of any sec Lion The idea is not a new one by any means Farmers of the great West own their own elevators for the stor age of wheat and their own mills for grinding it into flour and these are owned not by a few persons but by practically an entire community These Industries owned In common by the producers have succeeded far be yond the expectations of those who at first started the movement which pro duced the tangible results of mills and elevators Therefore it is evident that a factory for the manufacture of snuffs only a step further along in the per fecting of the idea of organization and there is no reason why the farm ers of the dark tobacco district should not go into business for themselves and prosper in doing so The crop of Western Kentucky and Tennessee is tobacco and it is reason able to suppose that snuff manufactured on the ground where the raw ma terial is produced and where the greater portion of it is consumed should be as successful as the mills which have followed cotton to the white fields of the South from the New England States and threatened to destroy entirely what was once a great Industry in that thrifty section There Is no reason why a pound of cotton should ever be shipped raw from the South and then shipped back again in a finished state Neither Is there any reason why ery pound of snuff consumed In the United States should not be manufac tured in the country where the tobac co from which it is made Is grown The success of the enterprise is cer talu if it receives the loyal support of the people It should have And it is necessary to have this for any en terprlse to succeed Likewise the erection of the plant with a capitalization probably in ex cess of half a million dollars will mean much Ina business way to the city or town which secures Its location The plant will be thoroughly modern employing a large number of Persons Business men of Clarksville have already begun their efforts to have it located at that place and it is certain that those of Hopkinsvllle Pa ducah and Springfield are not far be hind them Guthrie is an admirable location for such an enterprise with railroads centering from every direc tion and it is up to the people to do something if they want the plant lo cated at this placeThe Tobacco Planter o WOMANS TEARS GET PARDON FOR
