COUNTY KJ FRIDAY APRIL 7 1906 No 41 f DISFRANCHISED How Voters of Kentucky Are Denied Representation Strong Address Issued By Legis lative Commute In Charge to Test in Courts To the people of Kentucky A at the last regular session of the eral Assembly an act was passsec dividing the State into 100 Repre sentative districts which has been approved by the Governor and cloth ed with all the outer habiliments or formsof law The Constitution o Kentucky provides among othe- things that The First General Assembly ter the adoption of this Constitutorto shall divide the State into thirty eight Senatorial districts and one hundred Representative districts as nearly equal in population as may be without dividing any county except where a county may include more than one district which dis tricts shall constitute the Scnatioral and Representative districts for ten years Not more than two shall be joined together to form Representatives district Provided in doing so the principle requiring every district to be as nearly equal in population as may be shall not be violateds If in making said districts inequality of population shall be unavoidable any advantage resulting therefrom shall be give to districts having the largest territory Nopart of the county shall be added to another county to make a districts and the county forming a district shall be contiguous The General Assembly was direct jf ed every ten years thereafter to redistrict the State according to thus ruleConceiving that the act in question was a gross violation of both the let ter and spirit of the function nnd that it deprived a large number of our people of the right of selfgov ernment the undersigned were selected by the unanimous voice of the Republican members of the Leg islature to take steps to assert the rights of the people of the State against this unjust iniquitous and unconstitutional act of the Legisla tureThe right of a citizen to proportionate representation in the Legisla ture so far as it can be practically carried into effect by the instrumen talities of human gvernment is rec ognized and protected by the Con stitution 155111 452 By tho act in question it appears that more than a quarter of a mill of our people in twentyfour districts 2 or rather in twelve of them havo been denied and excluded from rep resentation in the Legislature to all e intents and purposes The committee having occasion to also consider the acts of the Legis lature of may 3 and June 28 1893 dividing the state into Senatorial and Representative districts and also the act on March 11 1898 dividing the State into Congressional districts found that they were each and all grossly unfair and violative of the State or Federal law govering the subjectAs that we are not mis taken in our views on this matter we attach hereto tables showing a num A her of Senatorial and Represents tive districts taken from the various acts of 1898 These figures taken from the acts and the census of State speak more eloquently nnd strongly than any thing your committee can say on the subject and need but little comment 11t our hands That we have a remedy against the violation of the supreme law of the State and the United States manifested in these various acts of A the Legislature seems to be too clear for dispute or argument We have found in none of the acts that have been contested and held in valid in our sister State anything more grossly unfair and violative of 4 G 131810 464 iv r anr the rights of the citizen to participate upon equal terms in the affairs of this State government than the acts of our own Legislature that w e propose to test in the courts At the last election for Presiden in our State the Republican part cast more than 47 per cent of the total vote cast and the Democratic party a fraction under 50 per cent If the Asembly districts were fairly divided the Republicans would have sixty five members of the Legisla heldtcarefulde facts have agreed that it is the dut of our people to contest the act of the General Assembly of May 3 1898 June 28 1893 March 11 1898 and thrutmost e proper effort each and all of heldnbe reconvened and laws more in ac ordance with justice right and Constitution will be enacted We deem it prudent that variou- suits be filled against each act an in every form and manner that such suits have been filed in our sister States so that there can be no ques tion that some of the number are thereforahave to upon r meritsWe have secured eminent counsel- to take charge of the litigation in behalf of the people and it will re quire considerable money to pay the expenses of these various suits give feenfor their ex pense incurred by the committee in prosecuting the contests in the courts The committee is serving without salary or hope of any financial reward for its services in the matter This is not a party matter as it strikes at the very root of the prin ciple of selfgovernment and the equal right of all citizens under the law to parttcipatcthrough their rep resentatives in the enactment of their laws All men irrespective of their affili ations are asked to take an interest in this contest for the preservation of the rights of the people and to aid us both with voice pen and purse in our efforts to assert and maintain tho Constitutional rights of Ken tuckiansAccording to the census of 1900

the Supreme Court There is no doubt that the decision I of the Supreme Court handed down recently will rip open thousands of divorces which were supposed to be binding by all parties to them It will dissolve all marriages made by parties to such divorces afterwasds and all children of those subsequent marriages will becele illegitimate and will be unable to inherit proper ty from their parents She decision of the United States Supreme Court revolutirnary though it may seem is extremely simple in its actual bearing In the first place 4 it must be understood that it does whati peared in court in persen or by an attorneyIt not concern any divorce case whether the defendant is present in court or not when the offense for which divorce is grantedwas committed within the jurisdiction of the court The decision of the Supreme Courtexpressed in the briefest possi ble form is That no court can grant a valid divorce unles the defen dant is personally within the jurisdiction of the court or unless the of fense for which the divorce is grant ed was committed within the juris diction of the court It is easy to see how widespread will be the effect of this decision Every husband and wife who has secured a divorce in one State for an offense committed in another in which the defendant still resided is carried still in the State where he or she had his or her original y domicileThe does not absolutely annual divorces nor does it absolute ly annual any subsequent marriages the chil nor directly illegitimate dren The divorce the subsequent marriage and the rights of the chil dren may be attacked apparently by subsequent yroceedings on the part of the party to the original marriage who was not consulted and who took no part in the divorce proceedings That is to say one State is not bound to accept the decree of a divorce I court in another State unless the de cree was found as the result of a complete jurisdiction of the defend ant or the offense Of course if the defendant does not subsequently ap peal to the court the original decree stands because no one else has a right to question it In those cases therefore where what are known as Dakota divor ces are not contested they will stand If the defendant whether man or woman has died they will stand and the property rights of the new wife and children will not be in terferred with Blood Poisoning results from chronic

Louisana is that of the disappearance of the green trout from allof the bayous and lagoons The cause of their rapid decrease is attributed to the fact that alligator gars are eating thorn almost as fast as they multiplyOnly the past few weeks has it been noted with alarm that I gars are so numerous in all of the lakes bayous and lagoons that it is almost impossible for any other fish I especially the green trout to live I and still more impossible for them to multiply In fact it is slated by professional fisherman andothers I that in some places gars are so numerous as to almost impede the pas sage of pirogues and fishing boatsi They lie in wait for the trout long grass along the shores and devour the spawn of the trout dcstroy ing countless numbers of them at one mouthful Fishmen using the gill not say that to every ono of other kinds of fish caught there are at least ten gars This subject and some way to destroy the gar was discussed at length i at a meeting recently held at Chef Menteur at which all the profession- alI hunters and fisherman of that- I immediate neighboahood were present and several plans were declared- to be feasible Mr Frank Miller t president of the Audubon Societ said that he thought an excelle t idea would be that of making hatch I eries in or near the water inhabited by the green trout He said that he thought the troat after itacquires the length of eight inches is able to move swiftly through the water and thus enabled to protect itself to a grea t extent from the gars At the same time that this is being done the des- tructionI of the gars could be carried on His plan for eradicating the gar was that a bounty to be paid th fishermen and for the Board o Commissioners for the protection o game in Lousiana to employ men as warden for the sole purpose of cat cling gars with the gill net paying them a salary out of the hunters license funds These plans met with much favor- S 1 OO Reward 1 OO The readers of this paper will be

preparatory to go ing on the stage when a man suddenly entered and drawing dagger said he was going to kill her if she did not at once marry him I The actress saw at a glance that the man was mad and meant what i he said So with the utmost cool ness she replied Certainly I will marry you I wish nothing better Come with hadfcut together to where there was assistance of course and the man was immediately put under arrest An instance of great presence of mind under a very different aspect of affairs was narrated by John Russell Young says a writer in the Grand Magazine Once dur ing the Civil war when Grant was in subordinate command he was re connoitring alone near the enemys himselfhone er ates pickets who was for arresting him Sho sho said Grant with the utmost coolness cant you see I am reconnoitring in the enemys uni form Dont make noise I shall be back directly And ha walked quietly away until out of the pickets sight then ran as nimbly as he could A similar piece of presence of mind under circumstances of great dan ger is related of Laurence Oliphant by Mr Innes Shand Oliphant once i declared that his nerves were never more severely tried than when he was attending a Socialist assembly in Lyonas as correspondent of the London Times It was whispered about in the room that a spy connected with that paper was present said the mob suddenly arose to discover the introducer breathing threats meanwhile which made Oliphants hair incline to stand on end That gentleman however hopped up with as much eagerness as anybody and searched carefully under the benches as if he longed for nothing so much as to discover the alleged spy- Sentence Sermons tChlrftfti I Trllinnt If your religion interferes with your business the chances are it needs to The

Each new detail only adds to our horor and kindles freshsympathy for those who although far away are none the less brothers and sisters of a common country Noth 1ingcould emphasize more the fact love of humanity is not dying toai tthanthe ready and eager response I to calls for help from the city by the I Pacific The Congress was prompt to act and the Government will send 2500000 to aid those plucky Amer i icans who have already taken steps to rebuild their once prosperous and beautiful city Not only have Amer ican cities been prompt and generous but from across the seas have offers of assistance to the peo i Iplc of our distressed city While comparative1l in the worlds history In San Fran cisco and neighboring towns the property loss will it is claimed amount to 300000000 and this enormous sum does not include the depreciation in land values which must follow at least temporarily as a result of the earthquake May our country be spared such another catastropheA be drawn from the awful destruction of San Francisco In the midst of plenty dwelling in peaceful contented happy homes we are prone to forget our helpless condition With all of our boasted progress in science and invention we cannot stop an eruption of Vesuvius stay the rush of a tornado or tidal wave The fire which makes cheerful the home and from which we draw so much comfort may when not under control become a most destructive agency After all how little we know of the mighty elements of nature How impotent after all the ages of study and research is the hand of man in the face of such a disaster as occurred last week and may take place any where at any time The only safe rule is to work as though you expect to live an hun dred years and live as though you may die at any moment TilE enormous use of money in Presidential elections has for its chief cause the present Civil Service system Time has been when any number of bright young men with f laudable ambition could be secured by both parties to speak and assist in the necessary work of organiza tion in every campaign All this has been changed by the present system Almost every avenue for holding Government position has been closed to young men of this generation Who can blame them for demanding pay for their ser vices There is nothing else in sight If the thousands of clerk ships now held for lifetoo frequents s by incompetents were thrown open to those who may do honest party service in our opinion an enormous blow would be adminis tered to the money power in its ef fort to control elections It is no disgrace to have an ambition to hold office It is rather a credit and the young man who does party work expecting a storekeeper gaupers job or clerkship in one of the De partments should not have his am bition thwarted by statute any more than the man who seeks to become a member of Congress or lays his wires to capture the Presi dency BECAUSE in explaining an error in regard to Local Union dues we stated last week that we had relied on MrSharps minutes as published in the Hartford Herald that paper has taken serious offence At the time the explanation was made we r did not dream but what the error was in the manuscript The Herald I knows and we presume most all our readers know that when matter like this in question is desired to be used in both papers the manuscript is only used by the paper which gees to press first Since the Herald has advertised its unreliability and warn ed us to stand on our own bottom we shall be more careful in the fu ture IN less than a year an extra ses sion of the Legislature will have to be called to undo what the last reg ular session did to the Legislative districts This will entail an addi tional expense to the taxpayers of many thousands of dollars but what does the State machine care for all that It is riding a high horse and the rights of the common people are held in supreme contempt When it wanted salaries raised and new offices created money was plentiful but not one cent for the Jamestown Exposition a celebration in which our mother State Vir ginia is so vitally interested A disgrace to Kentucky ON the first page of this issue will be found a strong address issued by the Legislative cemmittee of which Senator Bennett is Chairman show ing the gross injustice of the recent act of the Legislature gerrymandering Legislative districts An appeal to the courts has been determined upon It will require a considera prosecuteIin effect so as representation in the House gees should be liberal in their contribu tions to this fund Place the courts on record in this disgraceful mat ter AN effort will be made to organize a Lincoln League Club in every voting precinct in Kentueky This League has for its object the pro mulgation of the principles of the Republican party as taught by Lincoln fair elections fair pri maries an equal chance in the dis tribution of the officers and the elimination party boss The purposes of the organization are laudable and should be encouraged everywhere Only with such condi tions as it proposes to establish can the Republican party hope to again carry Kentucky THE Hartford Herald gives a short notice this week of an address issued by the Legislative Committee select ed to try and rescue our county as a Representative district but it takes due care not to print the address it self Besides it still refuses to give its readers a knowledge of the dis trict as created by the late unla mented Legislature Why not give your readers the benefit of this in formation HARTFORD has decided

to TmcUuruullrAXl Washington D C April 25Nots- ince the reorganization of the Army in 1902 hasit been called on to face an emergency of arty sort The disaster at San Francisco however has proved an emergency of the first magnitude and it is a satisfaction to be able to report that the army has met it without apparent effort The immensity of the loss at San Francisco from fire and earthquake- has dwarfted everything else and the whole attention of most of Departments has been given to sending and receiving news hurrying forward relief and authorizing the officers on the spot to make all sort of provisions to meet the necessities if the case- Secretary Taft said privately that ic was glad they had an officer on the ground who came to the front like General Funston and did things first and asked authority afterward Congress sunk all differences of party in passing the emergency appropriation bill giving 2500000 to be immediately available for the relief work This bill was passed in record time and sent to the President receiving his signature all within the space of six hours The only amendment made to it was the next day when Senator Morgan introduced another resolution making it clear that the money was available for the purchase of medical supplies as well as food- Telegraphers have been on duty constantly at the War and Navy Departments as in the days of the Spanish war and the Secretaries of War and Navy and of Comwerc and Labor have been in touch with the Departments over the phone at 11 hours The Government for once has been effectively busy and harmonious orders have been flashed from Washington calling on the Uartermasters and commissaries of the various army and naval posts most closely in touch with San Francisco to forward supplies as fast as they could be collected It has been realized that the promptest relief was the most effective and the first train of government supplies was expected to reach San Francisco on Thursday night The cost of the disaster to the government will be enormous The destruction in military and naval tores in and around San Francisco alone will be 2500000 In addition- to that the damage to buildings and quipment must be counted and there are 7000000 worth of gov rnment buildings within the area f the disturbance The relief work including the appropriation from congress will also amount into the millionsThe has decided that there should be a representative of the administration on the spot and Secretary Metcalf has accordingly been selected and started for California on Friday night His selec Lion was the natural one as the Department of Commerce and Labor is already closely in touch with the situation It has ordered the Fish Commission Steamer Albatross and all the available tenders of the Light- House Service to the aid of the sufferers Secretary Metcalfs home is in Oakland and while he is accompanied in Washington by Mrs Met calf he has a son and a sister in the stricken city from whom he has received no news since the disaster The Secretary has borne up gamely under the personal distress that the news has caused him and although- he sent private messages and did all- he could on the side to get track of- his boy he gave his first attention- to the work of relief and let family matters come after Secretary Metcalf was preceeded West a few hours by Representative Julius Kahn of San Francisco who was suffering peculiar tortures from the news Loss than 48 hours be fore the shock Mr Kahn received telegram from San Francisco saying Mother and son doing well and from that time the father has been able to hear nothing of either of them He has haunted the telegraph and newspaper offices in Washington and done everything I E P BARNES BR- OPREPARATIONFor spring crops is well under

cottonwood trees which once stood as great white limbed svutiiiulB along the Mill tjourl river throughout all that section have come to be a thing of the past Such is the report made by one of the owners of the steamer Moline of Kansas City Mo who is doing contract work along the stream and has been looking for big cottonwood trunks to be used as piling In river construction work He found that the only trees of this sort along either bank of the Missouri river for r0 miles either way from Leavenworth were in the government reservation of 3000 acres on the Missouri bank of the river just opposite Fort Leavenworth When the first ettlements be gan to grow up along the river in Kansas and western Missouri time banks were primeval forests of willow and sycamore and walnut with many oaks but greatest of all the giant cottonwood trees Many of these old trees were more thou 100 feet tall with trunks thur not infrequentlylueasured five and six get in diameter They seemed at once the boon and bugbear of the man who cleared his lot and put up his cab in the one because of the immense amount of labor it took to bring one to the ground and the other because of the flue lasting build ing lumber which it yielded Many of the first residences and business houses of Leavenworth were constructed mainly of planks and beams sowed from these great cottonwood logs In many of the old houses the cottonwood lumber can be found to this day thou sands of feet of it have gone into the construction of the new federal prison but now the supply is practically exhausted The government got its part which went into the prison from its 1000 acre reservation and it is in this patch of wood that tlie only even partial impression of what the big cottonwood forests once were can be obtained Even in this stretch of the woods the larger trees have all been cut out but time government wisely hus bands its timbers allowing the younger trees growing room and keeping them secure from the van lal and the professional woods man In Spite of His haualcap I want you tojiotire that man What is KCuliar about liini He has iHliieved distinguished success in life in the fare of time worst

litigation was Lin colns advice to lawyers Persuade your neighbors to compromise when ever you can Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loserIn fees expenses and of time As a peacemaker the law yer has a superior opportunity of be ing a good man There will always be enough business Never stir up a litigation A worse man cant scarcely be found than one who t does this Who can be more nearly a fiend than he who habitually over hauls the register of deeds in search of defects in titles whereon to stir up strife and put money in his pocket A moral tone ought to be in fused into the profession which should drive such men out of it It has been truly said that those words should be posted in every law office in the land and it will be seen when Lincolns record is fully exam ined that it was not a mere theorist who wrote them but an active prac titioner of wide experienced who lived up to his own teaching Samuel Johnson and Woman Of marriage in the abst ract John son highly approved Everyman hesaid is a worse man in proportion as he is unfit for the married state He approved of a man con tracting a second marriage and con sidered it as a compliment to the first wife He acknowledged how ever that he had once been on the point of asking Mrs Johnson not to marry again She might well have granted his request without any fear of being tempted to break her promise Johnson ridiculed the idea of a man being unwilling to marry a pretty woman lest he should have cause for jealousy No sir he said I would prefer a pretty wom an unless there are objections to her A pretty woman if she has a mind to be wicked can find a readier way than another and that is all He had in fact made a profound study of women from every point of view And yet Johnson never took women quite seriously and would not hear their assuming an equality with men either in mental or bodily pursuits The Christian Way tIudgel MotherNow Jennie I want you to divied that applo with Willie

their trade perhaps give lit tle thought to how when and where this article was first produced While there are millions of squares manufactured and used annually all over the world when the nineteenth century was born there was not one in existence One dull rainy day Siler Howes poor Vermont blacksmith who lived in South Shaftsburg was called upon by a peddler of tinware to shoe a horse These peddlers traveled up and down the country calling at every farm house buying everything in the way of barter This one had a number of worn out steal saws that he had picked up at various places Howe

we had two hours to wait and John Reuben seem ed to be w ell known to the gentle men of Memphis who wear white aprons a nuviber of whom we inter viewed but this seemed to be his busy night as we were unable to our locate him A short while after midnight we were escorted back to sleeper by a gentleman in a blue suit who carried an abbreviated walking stick with a strap attached thereto which fastened around his wrist and we urged him to come and go with us but he was a churlish fel low and abruptly declined and when I got inside I found that the nigg er had pulled down section of the ceiling tied it up with a chain and was pointing it out to me as my berth and I tried to get him to take it down and put it on top of the smoke stack because I would have more room and it would be equally as safe and easy of access but he was obdurate and refused me and I tried to explain to him that in my present condition I was unable to jump up into the berth but he whisked out a ladder similar to the one that Ja cob saw in his vision except that this one was crooked and kept trying to dance and before I could protest he had deposited me in that martin box of a berth and was removing

DIET And So This Plump Little Woman Decides on One More Day of En joyment Eats Dig MeaL In a lunch room a stout over dressed woman excited the envy and admiration of the thin dya peptic little woman on the opposite side of the table The orders of the stout one seemed given with the intent of including everything that was tasty and indigestible on the bill of fare without regarif to which meal she was eating or to the order in which the dishes were HLrved relates the New York Press At different times she had fried oysters chicken croquets and shrimp salad with olives and let tuce sandwiches and hot rolls The thin woman dallied intermin ably over her frugal bowl of crackers and milk just to watch her Finally when the stout woman wound up by asking for a slice of layer cake a piece of mince pIt pineapple sherbert and n cup of colfee for dessert the thin woman could contain herself no longer My its no wonder you look so hearty and well with a digestion like that she remarked If 1 should eat even one of those things Id be dead tomorrow Mercy you dont think 1 am hearty and well because I am stout do you exclaimed the other I dont I think to be this stout is almost a disease That why Im going on diet partly that and partly my digestion Its been awfully poor lately 0 Tin not on diet now she added hastily catching the blank exprcs sion of the woman opposite Im going to begin tomorrow Tin doctor says its positively nercs nary for my health in every way and for three months after this I wont be allowed to eat anything which I really like So I just made lip my mind to enjoy myself thor oughly for today anyhow since 1 wont have another chance for si lung a time My dinner tonight will be my last good meal I sup rose after three such meals as Ill have today Ill be fe4 ling terrible tomorrow So it wont be so hard for me to begin I lie dieting Im sorry for you said the thin little woman HIS DOG PROVES EXPENSIVE Twenty Cents Necessary for Return of 200 Canine Expected to
