A FRAN TANjyi EKLY NEWS tOL XXXIFlANKi SEPTEMBER b 1908 No 52 ftfl THIRD TICKET L F Johnson Will Accept Committees Decision rbs No Intention Of Running 4Indepeildeilt Will Insist That He Is Reg ular Nominee CONGRESSIONAL RACE IS MUDDLED L Frank Johnson of this city who was nominated by one of the con gressional conventions In Lexington on Thursday will before the Demo cratic State Central Committee and Insist that he is the nominee of the party in the Seventh District He will ask that he State Committee declare him the legal nominee and direct that his name be placed on the ballot under the party device t Should the State Committee decide against Mr Johnson and decide that J Campbell Cantrill is the legal nomi nee Mr Johnson will abide by that will not have his name declslHe ticket by petition and r trill as loyally as he is able m said that he had no idea of doing lthlng except bow to the will of thelttate Committee as he Is a Democrat He says he will contend that he is a lawful nominee but if the decision is against him no man in the district will give to Mr Cantrill more loyal support than he will give Mr Johnson contends that the State Committee is the proper body to decide the question of which candidate is the legal nominee al though he would rather have the case settled by the District Committee which is said to be against CantrllI by a good majority When the question will be pre sented to the State Committee Is not known but it probably will be in the near future The State Committee would be called by the chairman to take up the question and would then pass on whether Mr Cantrill or Mr Johnson is the nominee The whole question will be threshed out before the Stae Committee and its decision will be final The announcement made by Mr Johnson means that IIthere will not be two Democratic candidates in this district and means that the legal nominee will get the support of the Democrats of the dis trictThe following statement of his std of the controversy was made by Mr Johnson- My position is that the Franklin County Mass Convention appointing delegates was null and void on ac count of the rough riding and bulldozing methods engaged In by the Cantrill men land for the further rea son that a division was called for and tellers demanded and the Chairman failed to give the division and appoint tellers and that he adjourned to the State House yard a place other than that named in the call for the county mass convention against the protest of the KImball men If the selection of the Franklin county delegates was voidas provided for in the party rules then the Franklin delegates should not have been allowed to participate in tho temporary organization Under the present methods of run ning conventions the man who can effect the temporary organization can ordinarily secure nominations If on election Is void the party selected is not authorized to discharge the duties of sau office- I went out of the convention hall with the retiring delegates from Bourbon Fayette and Woodford My dele gation did not attempt to participate in the convention which was after wards held on the rear porch of the convention hall but I hoard a roll werIe I J ru i4 stated to be present With Franklin excluded 15 would have been a ir jority Of the delegates select roll was called and all 47 vo cast for Mr KImball it w time before he responded lien only a part of his speech When declined the nomination some one nominated me and after the vote was taken the ChaIrman announced that I Was duly elected and he declared me the nominee I was not a candidate for the position but I had made a strong fight for Mr Kimball in my county I had been in the council at the 11 oclock meeting and had vigor ously advocated the fight to a finish stating that I believed we should exer cise every right which had been granted us under the party law Under the circumstances I could not decline the nomination I think that the State Central Committee should say whether or not it Is right for the henchmen of any candidate to rough ride and bulldoze and In that way control our county conventions If in their judgment they say it is proper I am too loyal a Democrat to disobey their mandates I and the rest of the men who were with me will vote for the man whom mey say was properly nominated o Bourbon County Wants State Rifle Range SITE OFFERED THERE AND BE ING CONSIDERED ALONG WITH OTHERS Franklin county may not get the state rifle range after all as a site in Bourbon county is being inspected and considered In fact AdjutantGen eral P P Johnston has several sites under consideration and does not know yet which IP the most desirable He said Friday that he had not been able to find a site that was exactly according to requirements but that he was of the opinion that he would not find such a site Gen Johnson Inspected Trumbos Bottom Friday morning But this is not the Trumbos Bottom where the frogs reside The bog known among frog hunters as Trumbps Bottom is in another part of the Trumbo place The bottom land which Gen Johns ton inspected is well suited for a range and has plenty of space for a parade ground It fronts on the river and offers many advantages It has not been secured yet and may not be taken at all even if arrangements can be made o Aged Paroled Convict Will Die Free Man So that he may die a free man relieved of the stigma of being a con vict even though he Is on parole William Griever an aged man was GovernoreW H Cox The pardon was Issued after bond had been given to Insure that Griever would not become a ward of the State The story of Griever Is a pathetic one and the pardon is only a matter of sentiment as Griever can not live but a few months and is out on parole anyhow He lives with two spinster sisters on a farm and has never been off the farm since he was was sent to the penitentiary for twentyone years for manalaugh ter He is totally deaf and shot the man in Grievers story when he thought the man was attacking him After serving several years Griever was paroled by the Prison Commis sioners and went to his home Ho now a free man and will die in peace o Suit was filed In the circuitcourt by S T Marcus against M E Gor don asking for 3000 damages for al leged physlclal Injuries The petition is a brief one alleging merely that Marcus was attacked while walking on the street by Gordon and that he was beat up so badly that he was per manently injured For this he says he should have 3000 and then h says that his doctors bills amount to and that Gordon should pay them The men had a

MANY FIGHTS Keep County Mass Conven tion Lively Voters Stampede When It Looks Like Trouble Hats al14ftmdMrnc ln The SchuUw INSTRUCTIONS FOR J CANTRILL In the courthouse last Saturda JUp they had a convention It was called that or rather a mass meeting of Democrats and If there is any truth In the statement oft made that the harder Democrats fight in the convention the bigger ma jority at the polls then this county will go Democratic by about four thousand It was a lively convention t For several days afterwards when one met a man with his head bandaged one would say to him r Well I see you attended the con ventlon Saturday Of course he did not receive his wounds In that way but there were several heads cracked and others were more or less bruised in the stampede which followed the numerous fights One man who has just came to Frankfort said Being a nonresident I did not apprehend any danger when the fight started but evidently I did not know Frankfort fights for the crowd was that there would be sh- ootling and they went out In a hurry I weht with them I did not want go for I was interested in the but I went Just the same They say one man as he passed out of the windows was asked How are they coming out In there I dont know he replied but I know how I am coming out It happened this way The conven tion was called to order by John GrIf- fin The circuit court room was packed to the doors with a howling J crowd of men nearly all of whom were for Campbell Cantrill but some of whom were for W P Kimball The Cantrill men were yelling at the tops of their lungs with unction for Can trill Mr Griffin called for nomina tlons for temporary chairman and somebody nominated John Noel Somebody else nominated another man and then a third person nomi nated Frank Johnson Everybody was yelling and nobody could heat what anybody said until the crowd quieted down long enough to hear South Trimble say he was there In the Interests of Cantrill and that Noel was satisfactory to Cantrills friends Then the yelling was resumed with redoubled energy Mr Johnson tool the platform and began to speak He declared that the nomination of Can trill would make this district doubtful and would mean the loss of 2500 votes The crowd greeted this statement with derision and howled so that Mr Johnson continued his speech with difficulty to put it mildly j Actually nobody could hear anything ofJnatured began to get tired and two or three fights started in various parts of the house They were settled quickly however and Mri Johnson resumed his remarks The crowd resumed its noise Alex Henry then mounted a table and ape parently was about to make a speech Bowman Gaines was already making one but nobody heard him any more I than they did Mr Johnson Mr Henry did not say a thing but simply stood on a table and pointed his finger at Mr Johnson Mr Gaines continued his remarks Mr Griffin pounded for order Mr Johnson spoke Some body pulled Mr Henry down and others mounted chairs and tables and spoke The crowd howled with glee and nothing could be heard but the din of their yells Mr Henry then mounted the rostrum and was shoved aside He mounted again and grabbed Mr Johnson The two rolled off the platform to the floor Others jumped In and Joined the fray Mr Johnson says he was struck several times In the back of the head All was al tangled mass of fighting men on the platform How many were en gaged Is not definitely known Other fights started In other parts of the room and inside the bar It looked like there were a dozen encounters Then the crowd decided it was dan gerous to stay In the room and they left It was n panic They were out of that court room llko It was the Iriquols Theater It the building had J i w been tumbling down they could not have piled out quicker They went out by the windows and doors and in a terrible hurry Met were knocked down and trampled and mashed against chairs and doorways One man had his glasses twisted into a shapeless broken mass and his hat crushed In the back of the house It was just as bad The same desire for fresh air struck the crowd at the same moment and they piled out A well known attorney at the local bar who was standing on top of a bench was knocked between the benches and walked over and a blind man who vas attending the festivities would lyvyjj been Injured but for help which him Just lj 0nne til been settle ftie crowd pDaSSjfc to the courthouse and the mass convention was resumed An adjournment was taken to the State House yard and there the friends and supporters of Mr Cantrill were found to outnumber the supporters of Mr Kimble about three one and the county was instructed for Mr Cantrill The Kimball men declared on Sat urday that the vote of Franklin county would be contested maintain- Ing that Frank Johnson was elected chairman of the mass convention the courthouse and the resolutions in strutting for Kimball were adopted It was expected then that Kimball would carry Henry county and this would have given Kimball a majorlt of votes In the temporary organiza tion of the district convention With this majority the Kimball delegation from Franklin county could have been seated and Kimball would have won the nomination This was the plan which was carried out by the Kimball forces here and they laid the grounds for a contest expecting that they would have Henry county to back them up in the contest When Compbell Cantrill carried Henry county and had a ma jority In the convention it Is profit ble that the contest from his count was dropped Frank Johnson who was Kimballs leader here had arranged to send a contesting delega tion from this county Friends of Kimball had formed a plan to clear the court house and break up the convention held here last Saturday but did not put Into effect because they feared the death or Injury of one or more men In the stampede which would have followed The plan was to have some man on the outside of the court room set off some firecrackers while a man thpInslde Immediately afterward threw giant torpedoes It was pected that the crowd would stampede thinking that the noise came from pistols shots A fight would have been started too to make it more realistic This plan was abandoned when It was found that the court room was so crowded for fear somebod would be seriously Injured In the jam Had It been carried out the grounds would have been laid for a contest from the county but the stampede which followed a real fight was Just as effective and the Kimball men named a contesting delegation The storm of Saturday during which there was so many fights has blown over and the Democrats are better unted than ever with no soreness resulting The convention did not leave any bitterness behind and the ticket this fall will have the support of every Democrat In the county with prospects good fot the largest ma jority which Franklin county has ever given in a presidential election o Sent To Penitentiary For 5 He Did

afraid of In poor condition or diseased in any way produce milk that in turn produces badkeeping and badtasting butter The very best of cows are none too good Quite often the buttermaker com plies with every condition necessary for the making of good butter and fails because of somo detrimental quality in the milk Cows fed on an extra quantity of properly selected food will produce more and better milk than will a third more cows fed on anything that comes handiest to feedthe bulk of it dry and poor in quality Cows that drink from stagnant pools or that eat weeds moldy hay or musty corn fodder or anything in the way of of hay or grain that is damaged or anything ill smelling or highly flavor ed will give milk from which good marketable butter can not be made Cleanliness does not mean to use Mcare with the milk only after it has reached the milk room On the con it means that care is necessary the time you come into posses IItraryof your cows until you market butter and get your money greatest care and attention should be paid to the cow The pas tures and fields should be well cared for The stables should bo well kept and be whitewashed frequently and plenty of airslacked lime should bo 1used as a purifier Use nothing but the best of tin buckets to milk in When the tin Is worn off discard the bucket for milk ing purposes Incidentally I will say a never use your

pasture 30 acres of which gently sloping to ward a small run or brook was cover ed with a thickly matted growth of alders gray birch and rose bushes This growth was cut and all not large enough to save for stove wood was burned on the spot The stumps nnblack loam eight to 19 inches in depth full of small roots underneath which was a good bottom of clay This deaddfurrows acting as open drains to the brook It was then harrowed and AugustcCareful accounts were kept and enough hay was taken from 12 acres all that was reclaimed the first year in four years to pay all the expense of weighed hay This encouraged Mr topdressed each year and in 1906 one measured acre which had been seeded 14 years yielded 3 78 tons o weighed hay This encouraged Mr Dummer so much that In 1906 he bought a pasture

JAS T BUFORD as a candidate for the Legislature subject to the action of the Democratic party The split convention at Lexington is unfortunate in that It may cost the Democratic ticket many votes li the fall election but L Frank John sons announcement that he will not be an independent candidate in case the State Central Committee decides that J Campbell Cantrlll is the legal nominee relieves the situation great ly Mr Johnson says he is thedluu ly Mr Johnson says he is a Demo crat and that he will abide by the action of the State Committee It I this committee decides that Mr Can trill is the nominee then Mr John son will support the nominee to the best of his ability One Democratic candidate in any Congressional district is enough and every Democrat should show the same spirit as Mr Johnson The rule of the party commitee should be final and whatever its decision the Demo- cratsI should fall into line and support the man the party committee says is the nominee As to the merits of the controversy at Lexlngonoipp the controversy at Lexington that is a question which is to be submitted to the State Committee and will bo I argued at length before that body Tho main question seems to be wheth ieror not a county In which a contest has been filed has a right to cast a vote in the temporary organization of the convention The rule which has been followed Is to allow the delegation with tho regular credentials signed by the county chairman to vote in the tem porary organization In fact we be- lIeve the party rules so provide this having been a frequent and poten cause of splits It Is a reasonable rule Suppose there had been contests from every county in the Seventh district how would the convention at Lexinj ton have been organized Some rule for temporary organization must be 1tntnjllshed The Kimball men con coo was not feu l10 temporar organizatio ielther delega tion could void In Bourbon count where they dflvthe regular credei tials they saWne regular delegation could oifrjf the question of their right to vote was not raised It would seem r J onable that if Frankli county could not vote because of a contest that Bourbon also cduld not vote for the same reason But this Is for the State Committe to determine o The result of the elections in Vermont indicates that the Democrat will certainly make great gains in the whole country in the preside tlal election The State election in Vermont coming several weeks before the national election is alway s taken as a sort of barometer of what will be done in the nation and the Republicans or Democrats as the case may be gather hope or despair from the gain or loss of strength in the Vermont elections If there is a heav falling off in the Democratic vot In Vermont it usually means the same proportionate falling off in tho nation but if the Democrats mak gains in Vermont the party usuall makes great gains in the nation The Republicans won the election by carrying the State for Lieutenant Governor George H Prouty of New- Port for Governor by about 2800i votes over James E Burk of Burling ton his Democratic opponent The plurality Is the smallest In a Presidential year since 1892 when it was only 17905 and was followed by a Democratic national victory but larger than in 1888 and only slightly less than in 1900 There is a falling off in four years of about 8 per cent in the Republican vote while the Democratic vote fell off about 2 per centThat o no bitterness or soreness sults from the county convention here last Saturday is considered markable in view of the number of personal difficulties which were be ing settled in the course of fifteen minutes The convention seems to have had the effect of bringing the Democrats close together Instead of splitting them and the Democratic ticket this fall will have the big gest majority that Franklin county has ever given The disorder in the convention was the fault of no per son It simply resulted from overen thuslasm on the part of the friends of Doth candidates The convention emphasized one thing The courthouse is no place to hold a convention where the Democrats really turn out That courtroom was so crowded on Saturday that it was hard to find breathing space and that no one was seriously injured in the rush to get out when the fights started is remarkable Noth ing like an orderly convention could have been held in that small room and the State House yard is a much better place v Mr Bryan is awakening great en thusiasm on his first speaking tour of the present campaign having im mense crowds to hear him at every stop We thought the

and a girl The man wore a bathing suit with thin femlne hose covering the lower portion of his anatomy the tops of the stockings pinned to the end of the bathing trunks with safety pins But even the safety pins did not hold all the stocking up and there were gaps through which glimpses of skin could be seen The man car- rIed in his right hand a burlap sack filled partly with frogs The girl wore a white shirt waist and the lower portion of her anatomy was at tired in a bathing suit over which had been drawn a pair of knee rubber boots In her left hand was a dim lantern The two were in the middle bog and were kneedeep In slimy ooyz mud and water They were standing perfectly still holding hands just like some spoony couple just in from the country and on their honeymoon at tho county fair It looked sentimental but it wasnt Tney were holding hands to keep from sitting down unexpectedly in that mud At least that is what The Optimist was told by the man in the case He said it was a simple story of mutual aid in time of need but he also confided in The Optomist that the girl had a very small hand so he must have had time to think of some thing besides the bog and the frogs This was a frog hunting expedition which was pulled off the other night Several of Frankforts society people participated and the man who went along gave the Optomist the following description of it which is given fn his own way Did you ever see Trumbos Bottom Well I nevr saw it in the daylight and I do not know what it really looks like by the sunlight but at night its the wlerdest place I have ever teen It is a bog twoltaoirdlupppp seen It is a bog two miles or so ong and some three hundred yards wIde The water at the present times only a few inches deep but under that water is mud which is knee

over her boots and the slimy water ran down and filled bptl boots After that she had just as well have had none on With eachI step she would sink to her knees andI then have a tug to get foot loose she could step again I had on a low cut shoes and a bathing suit so walked with much greater ease WeI floundered along in the wake of Cunny who skipped over the bog In a hurry with apparent ease Just like he was on dry ground in pursuit of frogs We started out separately I carrying the frogs that had been al ready caught Suddenly the night allI was rent by a scream and I saw queenly clad figure sitting in the sot mud slowly sinking and yelling forI help It was the girl She had sat down suddenly in the ooze and was about to go under I rescued her and after that I could not lose her That girl clung to my hand like it was a hope And thats the way we lastj after that holding hands and ing about in that slimy water Oi course I did not mind holding hands It really was necessary you know and kept us both from falling down Will go again Not for mine No more frog hunts If I want frogs will buy em I can still smell that mud 0 yes we caught frogs We caught thirteen and had them for supper the next night and they were good They paid for the trouble of catching them and it was an experi ence that was rich but once is enough pass on any more such expeditions The frogs can play and tumble about in that bottom uninterfered with by me I will not bother them You know the pond about which Thomas Nelson Page wove a romance and of which he told a grewsome story He must have been writing aboul Trumbos bottom It would be an ideal place to secrete a body of a murdered person or to hide some treasure I firmly believe that Pearl Bryans head is in Trumbos Bottom- It could be there and nobody would find it One could lure a man up there cut his throat and sink the body in that ooze and nobody ever would find the remains unless in the years to come it should stop raining for a couple of years or somebody who is enterprising should drain that bottom That would be the only way to find the skeleton If any of my friends ever disappear I am going to look for them first in Trumbos Bottom As a frog farm Trumbos Bottom is a success for there are thou sands of frogs there but for any other purpose the bottom is useless It might be drained of water and in the course of time dry up enough to be cultivated when it would be the richest piece of land in the county but as it now lies it is the wlerdest lone Bomest strangest place one could Im agine Nothing can live in it except

up there that t t Committee composed of t nen of the counties com 0 the Seventh Congressional dis will have the right to decide Ji is the nominee It was conI tTfiided by these men that the party law was changed at the Lexington State Convention so as to take the matter out of the hands of the State Committee and leave It in the hands of the District Committee One of the delegates said that he heard Henry Prewitt chairman of the State Committee say that the new rules provided that the District Committee should decide questions arising in the district This delegate said he heard Prewitt read the party law to Campbell Cantrill and say that in his opinion the District Com mittee would decide the disputed question of nomination This view is not taken by the Democrats generally here and Judge- S W Hager who was chairman of the Rules Committee at the State Convention In Lexington says that the party law on the subject stands now as It has stood for several years that the State Committee shall de ciao disputes arising in a district as large as a congressional district The old party law was undoubtedly that the State Committee should de cide as was settled in the controver sy between Gayle and Moody in this very district The State Committee declared Trimble the nominee and the Court of Appeals said that the party law would govern and the decision of the governing body

wears when the Governor is on deck is missing Gov Wlllson is an Indefatigable worker as his stenographer and secretary can bear witness and he keeps things an the jump while he is here To worlt until midnight is a common thing with Gov Willson Of course when a Governor sets for himself the tasit of answering every letter which he reo celves and going into the minutest detail of everything in those letters drat Governor must sit up late or he that Governor must sit up late or he will get behind Gov Willson does that He an swers every letter which he receives and as the mail is so large every day that it wears out a man to carry It only a few blocks one has some Idea of what the Governor has cut aut for himself The Secretary to the Governor usually answers some hundreds of the letters which are re ceied at the executive office those let ters being applications for pardons or written by cranks or just the usual miscellaneous letter which comes to every man of prominence But Gov Willson does nut have it that we He follows the line that because the letters are addressed to him he should answer them Not being content to answer then briefly the Governor writes voluminously to all his correspondents If one wants a long letter one need only write to the Governor and one will hear a lot of things It keeps the Governor busy doing all this leter writing and he Is up to his ears in work all the time Still it is Gov Willsons failing that he writes too much his friends say They cite as an instance a pardo which was issued the other day The pardon was issued to a man who was convicted of petit larceny and sentenced to jail for six months The Governor used three typewritte pages telling why he issued that par don It is good for the spacewriters but hard on the stenographer o Famous

park built at a cost of 300000 will be kept open through the week of the State Fair to give the visitors an opportunity to enjoy its multitude of atractions This announcement is of the great est interest to Kentucky people who will visit the fair as it doubles the inducement of the trip to Louisville The White City is the largest amuse ment park in the country outside of Chicago and New York It covers enough space for a town and in its bounds can be found amusement and entertainment unlimited The beauty of the White City it self more than repays a visit The immense Board Walk built around broad lagoon is surounded by the buildings and devices all of white and handsomely uecorated At one tad of the walk is the Shootthe Chutes the long incline descending ta the lagoon the long ride down he chutes may end in a delightful lash over the waters At the other tad of the lagoon is the large band pavilion Here the Board Walk broadens into a great area in the center Of which stands the lofty electric ower a structure of impressive eauty and when illuminated at tight a dazzling spectacle Beyond the tower is the German Village with Its beautiful shade trees It occupies In itself enough ground for a park Jeyond the village is the immense pa Ilion used for concerts dancing c vhich overlooks the majestic Ohio river at the most beautiful part of his stream famed for its scenery Adjoining the pavilion on the riverbank is an open air theatre and bandstand and further down the restau ant where one may enjoy a meal side the river at most reasonable atesThe Scenic Railway the largest in the world is to the south of the Board Walk A ride on it is a most elightful sensation of rapid travel and at the same time perfectly safe The figure Eight is a similar device In which one enjoys a ride that is a continuous whirl and a most fascl sting pleasure The ShoottheChutes with its spiring dash down the long incline and the glide across the waters the lagoon is a pleasure of which one never tires The Canals of Venice afford a trip In a gondola of a quarter of a mile through a reproduction of the Italian cityThe amusement of the Board Wallt- are too numerous to mention but- the Third Degree and the Laundry may be mentioned as affording fun that alone is worth the trip to Louis vllleThe White City Is situated almost adjoining the State Fair and on theme car line and

presentation of the bunt ing to the Lawmakers Frankfort has u the Blue Grass League pannant ame with Richmond on Monday i lie was won by the home team pinched it and now no matter if Frankfort loses all the remaining games and the nearest competitor wins thorn all Frankfort would still be In the lead when the season ends 0f course Frankfort Is not going to do any such thing as lose all the re maining games nor is the nearest competitor Lexington or any of the other teams in the league going to win all the games played But still I this impossible contingency could happen and Frankfort would have the pennant won Formal ceremonies will be held later In the fall when the flag will be presented to Frankfort and will be put on the flag pole on the McClure building the tallest place in the city It will fly there for a while and then will be taken down to be preseerved by those who won it Frankfort had the best team That was all there was to the tale of the race for the epntnanonnaha cmfwyp ace for the pennant For only one Way was Frankfort out of first place The team i the league from the rr4g t e present and will lea e end with the excep tion vv For that brief space of tin nosed into the front but sta such a short time that til Id not get accus turned ko t p ion and did not know how to Int n It In every department of e game the Frank fort team man man and individ ually outclassed ie other teams in the league and there was never a lance of being headed Wright is the bright particular star He pitched thirteen games and won them all He walked only two men and one of those passes was really a strikeout as was conceded by the umpire after the Inning was over In addition to pitching thirteen winning games Wright played center in the games where he was not pitch ing and his fielding batting base run ning were a great help to the Law t makers in their rungetting Wright is a pinch hitter and won several games by slamming the ball at the right time Then take it all around and Frankfort has a team which Is j probably the best In Kentucky out of the Louisville Association f1side which Is going to win the pen 1nanti Red Bohannon belongs in fast company He is fully able to go in with any American Association team t He plays second with snap and vim and goad headwork and can hold down that sack for any old team Look at the others Zerlage at first Guest at short Fritz Hoffman at third Angemeler behind the bat and Chapman Wright and Steele in the outer garden That bunch outclasses I anything in the Blue Grass man for man and It is no wonder that Frank fort won the pennant U Early in the season Frankfort out b1lucked the other teams Frankfort won several games by luck pure and simple for Richmond had a better team but Chick Kennedy got busy and gathered In some other players Red came back home and Hoff man got in the game here and In the latter half of the season it was always Frankfort The others were out classed and knew It Young Schulto is a good pitcher and Cornell Is good enough for Toledo to try out next year so he must be all right He has pitched good ball all season and he and Wright have been the reliable and steady standbys of the Frankfort team Crutcher was unlucky in that J l he injured his arm by overwork but a rest he will come again and inext year he will be one of the best In tk the business Allison played abril if liant game at short until he was in jured and forced to drop out of tho game for several weeks His absence left fl big hole in the Infield and Man llagor Kennedy was exceedingly lucky n In getting so good a man as Guest Even Allison was hardly missed 11 Frankfort won two games from Richmond this week taking one on Sunday and another on Monday The game on Sunday was a good one and Frankfort played perfect ball win- a theyBruno though much loser team was illassorted the men feing chang Huffman went to right took thirds a position w nft his long suit Guest was not oocl shape so he was put in left ela- and Chapman went to short where he played a fair game schulte pitched and did well Frankfort gave a god Imitation of a team trying to give a game away several times and played some stupid ball but Richmond did the same thing and lost the game The visitors did a great deal of very stujKtl base running taking long andIFrankfort won out In the seventh after Richmond had tied the score in their half of that inning by putting two runs over the plate The game of ball between the Louisville Colonels and the Law makers here some time about tho middle of the month will be the biggest event of Its kind ever pulled off in Frankfort Manager Burke will bring his entire team and you can rest assured that the club will play to win as the game will be on the percentage basis Manager Burke realizes that our Lawmakers will put up a fine game consequently will send his best man to the box Invincible Rasty Wright will be on the rubber for our pennant winners and its n hundred to one shot that the boy from Hatton dont give a single one of the boys from Louisville fan trans portation to the first sock This game should be attended by every man woman and child In Frankfort It Is not often the people of a city Is afforded an opportunity of seeing a big league ball game and should not fail to be on hand The Millers proved to be easy pick Ing for the Lawmakers at Shelby vlHe Tuesday by a score of 9 to 5 Cornell did the slab work for the local club and pitched a fine game He was opposed by Feeney and ONeal Forrest better known as Rasty Wright will not be able to play an other game this season on account of having his middle finger of the left hand Injured In the game at Shelbyville Tuesday He was playing in the center garden and attempted to catch a long fly on the run when the ball struck him on the end of the finger tearing the flesh away from the bone The many friends of Old Rasty will be sorry to learn of his misfortune as his slab work on the local diamond always brings out a big crowd Wright has accom pushed this season something no other ball player has done not only in this league but in all leagues He has putched 117 Innings and has won every game and has never hit a bat ter and only gave two men during the entire season transportation to the first sock Wright has been sent to the box to oppose the strong est club of the Blue Grass League and each and every time he has come out with the black and white colors flying There are several big league clubs after Rasty for next season and we believe he will make good no matter where he plays He says he hopes that his hand will be well enough to pitch against the Louis vill cluo here about the middle of the month as he Is very anxious to show the big league fellows that the B G L can play ball i Manager Tommy Sheets Journeyed to Richmond Tuesday accompanied by his bunch of Thoroughbreds and took the Pioneers into camp to 0 In a pretty pitchers battle between E Golden for Richmond and McCormick for the Thoroughbreds Six hits were made off McCormicks delivery but they were well scattered while only two were made off Golden one of which was a home run by Stockum in the eighth The Lawmakers have only

League pennant and Louisville provided Louis ville wins the Association pennant 01 oven if that team should land in second place Tho games would bo played hero or half hero and half In Louisville and

systematically end maliciously continued since is an attack on the Burley Tobacco Society alone With the American Society of Equity the Tribune has no concern except that tho American Society of Equity advocates the controlled marketing of farm products a principle which the Bur ley Tobacco Society has applied to the of Burley tobacco No more is the CommercialTri bune concerned about the tobacco organizations In the State which control other than White Burley tobacco But being itself interested or closely connected with those who are terested in Burley tobacco it makes this continued onslaught on the Burley Tobacco Society because the success of the Burley Society causes certain tobacco interests temporary convenience Incidentally too it takes up the cudgel for the Commit sion Tobacco Warehouses Not only in its columns but in its editorial columns as wen are they also commercial the Trl bune begs the question and appeals to popular prejudice by always ferring to the Burley Tobacco Society as the Equity Trust The present writer denies that the Burley Tobac co Society is a trust In the sweat of their brows the members of the society grew the tobacco which they hold and control It Is theirs and they do not intend if they can pre vent It that any one shall get hold of it for less than its reasonable val ue or no matter for how much above its reasonable value in a way that would weaken the organization and Injure or destroy its efficiency in protecting the growers interests In the future For this latter reason the district board of control discourages the trans fer either of tobacco or of certificates because they want the grower to hold on in the fight and secure all the advance in price and for this reason too the board demands that every man who entered into compact to hold his tobacco in common with all others in the society abide by his con tractThe compact was entered into with the understanding that every member took equal risks with equal hopes of advantage If any member either to secure an immediate sale or to get a higher price than that at which his tobacco is graded in the contract breaks his contract he is guilty of a breach of faith that any man of honor would scorn and which the last General Assembly made by statute a misdemeanor The man who enters into the compact and then breaks it throws upon those who do act in good faith all the liabilities which he assumed with them and appropriates all the advantages which was to be mutual Any honorable man knows how to class such a fellow albeit there may be extreme cases In which the society should make exceptions to its Just rules or In some way pro- vIde for the man in extreme straits ln1 tfII It Sterling values that stamp the store as an absolute leader in all grades of mestic

Burley Tobacco Society Is a monopoly in the same sense that the American Tobacco Co is a monopoly There are two fundamental differ ences between the natures of the tW organizations First in the way th property controlled is acquired and second in the purpose for which this control is acquired In one instaiu the control comes through voluntai cooperation and an opportunity t cooperate is extended to every main the other It came through competition which crushed out every mal1 except tho winner The purpose oj this control in one instance is tht good of each man cooperating in tht other the purpose Is the destructic of the weak man for the benefit oj the strong few One is a corporation without capital not for corporate gain and therefore has no watered stogy and pays no dividends What the Burley Tobacco Soclet seeks to control is the supply of th- loose White Burley tobacco the product of the labor of its members The object of such control is the advantage of each member The American Tobacco Company controls the loose leaf the manufacture and the sale of the manufactured article gether with contributory Industrie as the licorice business the box and bag business The commodities whit it controls are the products of the labor of those whom the compan seeks to shut out or to absorb for the benefit of the American Tobacco Co and not for the benefit of those whJ produced the values In the acquisition of these values they are said one who has been very gentle with them to have used the methods the pirate the pickpocket and the porch climber One house built a brand and the American Tobacci Company acquired the brand not for the benefit of the house that bull it up but for the benefit of the American Tobbacco Co A former employe of the America Tobacco Company gives this write the

and more it profitable to every grower ike Their success will not lessen the number of tobacco growers by ohe or- lessen the profits of one grower There are no laws existing that seem able to protect the farmers now against this greedy combine and they are using the only method known tc them to protect themselves They are dealing with what they produce by their own toil and not with wha they have acquired by outwitting some one else So much for the relative claims of the Burley Tobacco Society and the American Tobacco Company upon the recognition of the State One seeks to leave as much wealth In the hands of the masses that all people may thrive and support both their dividual and their community interests the other seeks to reduce the masses to the minimus wage while large fortunes amass in the coffers of the few One tends to equalize wealth by a just distribution of prof its the other tends to concentrate wealth produce congestion and corruption in Wall street while the farm er Is kept just out of reach of want One seeks the greatest good of the greatest number the other seeks the aggrandizement of the few The Tribune writer parallels the charge that the American Tobacco Company has destroyed the business of others by charging that the Burley Tobacco Society has Inconvenienced independent manufacturers and hurt business of the commission tobacco warehouses and the speculative deal ers If the independent manufacturer suffers hardships it is the power of the trust that he has Justly to com plain of He can not demand that the grower of tobacco furnish him raw material at a sacrifice in order that he may be able to cope with the trust Let the Independent manufacturer make his fight against the trust that has hurt his business the combina Lion that has squeezed out the many for the benefit of the few The trust has truly said that the price of tobacco would not affect their business hurtfully so long as all manufac turers paid the same price for raw material The Burley Tobacco So ciety sells at a uniform price Until the Tobacco Trust choked them out the commission tobacco warehouses and the tobacco speculator lived off of the folly of one end of the tobacco growing business the selling end Growers sold tobacco at auction in time commission warehouses for anything It would brings many instances getting from a little to much less than nothing for It They sold tobacco to speculators for low prices and the speculators held it for high prices The farmers have found both of these methods to be most unbusinesslike As before indi cated the American Tobacco Company has greatly decreased the volume of sales by the first method because they had control of the sales at the commission houses as well as at the barns and the farmer had only extra trouble and expense without competi- tIon when he shipped to the city markets So long as the grower could sell through commission warehouses and to speculators in actual competition c iuirt 7lh

contribution that he makes to the general good or he Is a beneficiary of the State There Is no way by which the economic body is under obligation to make for him a place which Is a tax upon the body instead of a contribution to the general good If this be true of indl vkluals much more is it true of institutions The American Tobacco Company has destroyed for its own gain the business of others for which no proved substitute has been found It Has destroyed the many to feed a narrower circle and not to put in the place of the thing destroyed a more efficient social servant Time claimI of any individual institution ciety is measured by Its worth to so clety The measure of service is the measure of the claim to compensation and continued existence The Burley Tobacco Society is not them a trust In the same sense that the American Tobacco Company is a trust whether one considers the nature of the properties controlled the method by which control was ac wired the purpose of such control or the social service rendered The Burley Tobacco Society operates for the good of all engaged In the business of growing tobacco not for someone concern that has monopolized the growing of tobacco The commis mien warehouse and the speculative dealer have no more claims to perpe tuity as agencies lor selling loose leaf tobacco than the tallow dip has an agency for lighting or that the stagecoach has as an agency for interur ban transportation They have served their day and have been supersedede by a better method The Burley Tobacco Society does not destroy those in the same business as Itself

TAKES ACTION HALF YET ON HAND The Executive Board of the Planters Protective Association has cided that no sales of the 1908 crop of tobacco under the control of that irganizatlon shall be made until the 907 crop has been finally disposed of The last report of Auditor Scales showed that about 30000 hogsheads of the 1907 crop have been sold this being about onehalf of the holdings ot the association For several weeks now the sales of tobacco all over the strict have been decreasing with no settled indications of a stronger demand at any time soon The report that the crop which Is now maturing would be one of the finest in quality and largest in yield whIch has been grown in many years Is thought to have been one of the prime reasons for the lack of buying I SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 6 7

started for next year and unless the crop and a half now on hand is dis posed of before planting time next year this movement will doubtless gain more strength on account of those conditions Officials of the association say they confidently expect a resumption of buying within the near future and they do not antici pate any trouble in disposing of their entire holdings at full graded prices The
