HAI TEORD KY FRIDAY DECEMBER 25 1903 No 23 POPUlAR SUffRAGE Shall it be Restricted as Pro posed by Politicians The Vicious not the Uneducated Should be Eliminated Editor RurunucAxII the General Assembly takes up the matter ofre- etrlctlng popular suffrage at Its ap- proacbfng sitting along the lines Indicated by certain Democratic newspapers Its effort will be directed to ward strengthening the power of the dominant party rather than toward purltying the electorate of the Com monwealtb But It that body wants to make R really honest effort to Insure the State aglllnt violence through the ballot boX the opportunity Is nt hand The already large and rapidly Increas- Ing number of purchasable voters Is a real menace to good government that may well arrest the attention of thoughtful lawmakers Startling as the figures may appear to the general public those who have had to do with practical politics know that there are more than 40000 voters In Kentucky whose votes are purchasa ble a number far In excess of any recent or any probable future majority ofa political party In the State With such an electorate It Is plain that pelt has long odds on patriotism in a contest for control of the state diStrict and county governments An educational ballot would go only a small way toward correcting this evil and that at the sacrifice of a principle long cherished by law mak ers of Republican etatesnnlvesds- uffraie It Is not difficult to offer well takeu objections to the doctrfue ofunlVersal suffrage but II es tabllshed that popular suffrage may be abridged for one taus causes may be multiplied until by the Interest or caprice of those who happen to be for the time In power suffrage may be restricted until It Is destroyed It Is not the Ignorant but the vicious who endanger the state With the tendency of the times toward centrl- Iztlon of wealth In a few hands and with It vast and ever increasing army of floaters the possible rouse quences to popular government are Indeed alarming I am aware that statutes exist providing punishment for trafiicing In votes but for reAsons well known to those Indulging Ip the traffic If not to everybody else no attempt Is made to enforce them But the evil can be remedied The State of Indiana has a law against vote sell 4lagwhich Is rendered effective by the omission of penalties for the vote buyer I noticed recently that thIrty men were sent from one county toI the penitentiary for selling their votes In that State The Indiana law mak era certainly dId not mean to canonize the vote buyers as saints by fall lug to ppvtde punishment tor their offense but Were seeking a practical remedy for the corruption ot popular elections Selfish Interests to which law mak era must often appeal will operate to enforce such a law New York has a law requiring candidates for office to file sworn statements of earn palgn expenses The Indiana and New York laws operatleg In eonjune tlon would go a long way toward remedyIng the evil There are doubt- lessI other and better remedies for this governmentfout remedies but to tali attention toI the real danger to the state a danger the predicted action of the GeneralI i Assembly Is Inadequate to If the elimination of the negro vote If contemplated In the proposed edu cational ballot the means are notI well taken The younger generation of negroes whom the dominant party insists are the least responsible of their race can pretty generally read and It should not be forgotton that the minority In Kentucky Is too large and powerful to allow such an interpretation of the law by election officers as obtains In more Southern states to discriminate against the ne- gro voters It the mnjorlty In the General As i J t srmbly undertakes legislation to restrict popular suffrage by eliminating the uneducated vote It will afford the minority a splendid opportunIty to oUer a measure to eliminate the vIc sous element from the electorate and force the majority If it will to dis uneducateddthe ballot In tire hands of the crimi nal who values It only for the money it will bring them OWEN ONGwu Republican Indispensable Mr Henry Dever Sulphur Springs called to see us

THE BONG CASES Against uhlenberg County Have Nearly Been Settled Some Holders Were Lucky Enough to Receive Eleven cents on the Dollar The bond cases against the county of MuhJenberg are rapidly being settled and before the winter Is over they will be entirely out of the courts The case of Frank C Guthrie came up In the courts last week In this case a demurrer filed to the original petition was sustained This will probably throw the matter out of court although the plaintiffs are al lowed to file an amended petition There were originally seven bond suits In the courts but only three are left the remainder having been com promised It is thought there will be disposed of In the same way Some of these cases have been on the th civet of the united States court at every session during the past twenty years The war started when the old ElIzabethtown and Paducah railroad was first constructed At this time the county voted 250000 worth of bonds to pay for the line The people were nearly bankrupt and when It came time for the owners of the bonds to secure the money due them they Ibund It au Impossibility The matter was taken Into the courts and In every case the bondholders were given judgment against the county The fiscal court was notified to levy an assessment for the amount of the bonds Instead of doing this they resigned Never since their time has there been found a court that would levy the tax all of them resigning when ordered to do so The owners of the bonds at last de tided to try compromise This many have succeeded In doing and some of them have received as high as eleven cents on the dollar for their holdings Others have not fared so well The three remaining suits In the courts are under consideration at present and It Is thought a compromise will be effected In the near future The old Ellzabethtown and Padu cah railroad has changed hands many times since the bonds were Issued and Isnow the Illinois Central e II A Timely Suggestion This is the season of

Visitaion to a Sick Chamber Rappins Answer Sick Childs Questions During Repeated Conversations in Start ling Way Hustonvllle Ky Dec 22The nine day wonder of which little Janie Farris was the central figure Is past but there are many people of credibil ity and common sense In this commuI- nlty who will assert most positively that the little adopted daughter of L A Farris was the object of a miracu bus visitation Fully 300 people In and about Hus tone ille would tike to know what It was that caused apparently supernat urat phenomena at the Farris house Not professing to believe In the supernatural they still are unwilling to deny the evidences of their own senses They saw and heard and they cant expatn Theorists who were not there fall to offer anything adequate In the way of explanation The story of the phenomena which surrounded the recent Illness of the child cannot be more convincingly told than In the worlds of Mr Parris the little girls foster father a practical hardheaded and unlmpresdon able man once a saloon keeper and stock raiser I dont believe In ghosts said he and I would be glad to explain these things that happened here II I could But I cant explain them and there are 2 or three hundred per sons around here that feels just the way I do about It Why on Sunday week this pike was crowded with wagons and buggies and lots of peo pie were almost stared to death You could hear the raps on the frame of the house right alongside of Janies bed clear out there at the tollgate and thats a hundred yards away It sounded just like a man hitting the timber heads with n maul as bard as ht could drive At least fifty people walked all around the house Inside and out trying to see where the noise came from and they couldnt The blows would shake the house before their eyes and they couldnt tell what It was no more than I could And that was only one ot the funny things that happened JAN1E liAS SPELLS How did Janies Illnes first man- lIest Its 1I Well Ill tell you Since the Ist of tail December she has had spells which would last from half an hour to lour or five hours When shed have em she wes just like a a different crlature Now when shes at herself she cant sing a note but when shed have n spell shed sing the most beautiful hymns you ever heard Shed compose the words herself and the tune was usually Nearer My God to Thee or some other hymn tune Then she danced and recite poetry with gestures just like an actress Would make on the stage Fh ally lost hq mind entirely and we sent he to the Lakeland asylum Alter she was there six weeks they sent for us tocome and take her Tbey aald she wasnt Insane at all Well when my wife was bringing her home from Lakeland she had a spell at Lebanon Junction and After she got to her home she kept having them until she would have from five to ten a day Recently when we be gan to get worried for fear she was going to die I first noticed the rap ping It was very light at firstand there always was a lot of light rap ping even after the heavy blows began When I noticed It I asked JjlUle what It was She didnt know and asked me not to leave her alone because It scared her The rapplngs started In again the next morning at 4 oclock when we were all In bed We had moved Janies bed out from the wall Into the middle ot the room but that didnt have any effect on the rapping On Saturday morning the heavy blows began just like stuck with an ax or maul and a lot of people that had heard about the matter stood around and listened to the noise and tried to find out what caused It Why the blows were so heavy that a you could see the side of the house bulge out I drterniued to find out what caused the noise and I pulled off the weather barading right where the house shook but I found that the house WM boxed up and down underneath the weatler board lng and there wasnt room between the timber for a mouse lIAD REGULAR HOURS The hard knocking occurred every five or ten minutes until 9 oclock Sat urday morning and then at the same Intervals from 3 to 6 In the veulng It began again at 4 oclOk Sunday morning and lasted under 2 oclock- on Sunday afternoon Since then there has been only a little light rp ping and In the last five das nothing at all has been heard Of course a good many people said they thought Janie was a medium and that the knocking as some spirit trying to communicate with her I dldut pay any attention to that talk but on Saturday my wife came Into the store here and said I wish youd just come up here to the house right away I went with her and said Now Janie you ask those questions again 111otbIwere as anything you ever heard Tren Jannie said If that Isnt my mothers spirit dont rap at nil There wasnt a sound Then Janie saidtoU Iam going to die rap three times There was three raps as plain al- anythlpg Then there was a dozen other mysterious things while the rapping was going on A medicine glass fell off the wash stand with out anyone near It and when my wife put It back again It fell right off before her eyes She put It back again and the third time It fell off and broke My wife had just put Janies shoes under the bed and she stepped out of the room n momentJust a moment and when she went back the shoes was strapped in bed when this hap pened We had to strap her In bed to keep her from hurting hersell when she had these spells I stepped out of the room one day when nobody was In there but Janie and my back was hardly turned to the door when I heard a noise I opened the door and the spittoon was rolling around the roqm Janie hat never gotton out of bed My wile would straightened up the zoom and go out and In five minutes when she went back shewould findtfttlrooDl up set completely the drawers out of the washstand and the bureau turned over on Its side Now all those thing happened I just tell you they happened I dont try to explain them Thomas Cotton neighbor of Store keeper Farris corrborates all of these statement I put my hand against the house where the loud knocking was going ou sold he and the shock bounced my hand off like some one had hit the other end of the tim bet with a maul Bessie Walace the cook at the farm house also corroborates all of the statements Miss Angle Carpen ter and Miss Edna Camlnty the later a daughter of the postmaster at Hus- tonvllle heard the little girls ques tions answered by raps The little girl herself offers no ex planation of the matter She Is a bright child though her head is rath er disproportionately small I always get scared at the rap plugs said she I hope there wont be any more of It She is now quite free from her violent spells and seems tn a fair way to recover entirely The foster mother Mrs Farris Is a well educat ed and Intelligent woman coming from one of the beat families of Boyd county Z dont believe In anything supernatural she said At least I didnt until these things occurred at home I cant explain them thats all No explanation Is attempted ex cept by Dr Will Hunn of Shelby City who Is attending the little girl The child has simply been suffer Ing from nervous convulsion said he There Is nothing supernatural about her Illness I am compelled to believe that the mysterious rapping hnq occurred but I think It was due too a slight earthquake shock Ell Fugate who is charged I with be rag the most extensive moonshiner- In Kentucky has been

Rude Mens Life Becomes one of Unmixed Woe Young Women of Denver Form an Organization to Sup press the Biped- Nuisance The young women of Denver bave resolved to make the life o1 the masher one of unmixed woe and with that end In view have formed nn organization for his repression These womj en bwe suffered long and patiently from the nnnoyancts put upon tbemI and followlnlt them on the atrceta- Atapaboe street one of the principal thoroughfares of the city has become a terror to the pretty girl when out shopping and teen the fIhlooable district on Capital Hili has not been free ire = the presence of male flirts The police were appealed to but even this failed as It was next to Impossible to obtain evlence The victims were ready enough to complain while burning under the immediate effects of the Insult but In nine cases out of ten no policeman was In sight andI the man escaped Even when arrests were etude the fair complainants fail ed to appear In court the next morning to press the charge So a dozen Interpld young women decided to take up the matter themselves and make an organized effort to stamp out the nuisance buss Louise Lee HardJn president of the Business Womens Club of Derer was the leader In the movement She came forward with a plan that presents some unique and practical features The men were to be left out ollt entlrelya except the po liceman She proposed that the streets of Denver be patrolled by publlcsplrlt ed young women who would be lear lees enough to appear In court and give evtdente against the masher The girls were to be pretty enough to tempt the eye of any rude man and they were to act at decoys to lead on their tormentors Whenever pegs ble they were to work In pairs In order to have a preponderduce of evl dence and thus overcome the mashers expected denial In court It was ndt considered necessary that the two young women should be wlllking together but they should keep near enough to permit one to see al that the other saw and In this way have corroborative testimony Of course there was the difficulty I of getting a policeman when he was wanted but Miss Hudlns fertile brain also had a solution for that prblem The young women acting RS patrols were to have badgtS Indl tbeyImashers they were to enlist the Rid of policemen and have them with in easy call but far enough away to throw the masher oft his guard The proposal met with Instant approbation and no end of recruits came forward Colorado Is a state where women vote and even tbeJ prettiest girl looks upon It as her province to uphold what are consider ed the rights of her sex When It was seen that a feasible plan badI been brought forward some of the handsomest girl In the city offered their services to Miss Hardin They were not all business women some of them were society bells but therwereentuslasllc igperforming- a task that mere men admittedly hadl failed in accomplishiniryr Miss Hardin selected lIlss Sheri dan and bliss Athlsoir as hr chief aids and with the otGf fairvolun teers the patrol system was pat nto execution Several arrests were made and so overwhelming was the evh deuce against the prisonersthat con vlcliorlS wete obtalnedl every case As a result there is dismay In the ranks ot the mashers Ids satd there Is not R man In Denverwho will look crosseyed at R girl he dOfSnt know for lear he will encounter one of the patrols But the crusade did not end with the suppression of ogling and annoy antes In the streets Miss Hardin Is J Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic has stood the test 2S years Average

the Coming of 1904 The coming of the New Year Is be- Ing awaited Impatiently by a large portion of the human famllynmt portion which In some sections Is des- Ignated as spinster In others as unmarried ladles arid in all sections as old maids j The passing of time Is generally viewed with alarm sorrow trepidation grief and woe by the old maid but not so In this Instance The sooner the New Year comes the sooner will arrive a coveted chance for a determined step toward happiness This New Year means more thIn any of the eight that have last passed Into wrinkles and Increased sklnnl nets for the poor elderly maiden It means Leap Year and this has au Immense significance to the unmar ried lady who Is getting to beor has beenlndtfnitely touched as to her ageLeap Year ordinarily comes every four years but by means of some abstruse mathematical calculation by which years ending In 00are hand capped It skipped that time It was due and thus caused n fouyearpost ponement of certain carefully conceal ed hopes aspirations and propotals For three years out of four jeman proposes and God disposes InJeap Year theold mild proposes and Providence lets man get out of It any way he can The coming Leap Year should be more productive of off side plays than orhers because old maids have been accumulating during the last four years and the holdover supply from the proceeding Leap Year Is stillon the wallIThe theory on which the old maid operates and gets In her work Is that she la helping the young man out that while he Is perfectly willing and anxious to fay the words lie is too bashful and that he really needs the help of the woman In the case to bring his courage to the popping point and his arms to the hugging angle In various localities a number of ladies who are as old as Anns
