of Georgetown while the defense was represented by Major W C Owens of Louisville and J L Wilson of Lexington Mr Franklin stated that it would r be impossible for the Commonwealth to enter into the trial at the present erm ofcourt as in the first placeI W jt wastoo short and in the second jplace owing to the climatic condi- tionsi it would be impossible for them to get their witnesses Major Owens accepted the state ment of Mr Franklin and said it I would be necessary for a special term to be called He suggested that one be called about the month of May Quite an argument arose over the question as to whether Judge Stout who stated that he had been con nected With the Howard case should preside at the trial or whether a special Judge should take the bench Mr Franklin thought that under a decision of the Court of Appeals the I special Judge who started the case should finish it while Mr Owens contended that the decision was not mandatory that it merely said he could do so He urged Judge Stout to remain on the bench at the special term The Judge said however that the matter was not quite clear in his mind and that he would hear further argument on the matter i Powers was

we are yet to have many winter days Did he see his shadow It a depends on when he looked for it If as some contend he came out atexactly high noon he saw no shadow for at that time the entire canopy was veiled with clouds If the contention of some others be right that he blinks out of his hole all day in an effort to see if he can cast a shadow then he did see it for the sun shone brightly during part of the afternoon Like most oracles the groundhog is an ambiguous prophet But the indications are that he saw his shad ow for immediately after the sun I came out the wind began to blow from the north and the mercury be I gan to hunt the bottom of the tube The temperature fell steadily during the afternoon and the early part of the night and the groundhog win ter appers to have been ushered

Sunday closing movement inaugurated ear ly last summer is a closed incident as far as Louisville is concerned The program of the local authorities to keep saloons closed on Sunday morning during church hours it is said has the approval of Gov Beckham and no further effort will likely be made to enforce the law It is almost three months since County Attorney Robert W Bing ham threatened to institute civil actions against the violators but as yet he has made no move in the courts In the past few weeks Mr Bingham has refused to discuss his probable action intiminating that it had already been discussed too freely in the newspapers Whether he in tends to make good his threat is now a matter of conjuncture only At the time that Gov Beckham called on Commonwealths Attorney Joseph M Huffaker to take steps it was said by friends of the Governor that he would find a way to put the lid on in Louisville Mr Bingham was called into the case and Kennedy Helm was appointed by the Governor to assist the County Attorney Mr Bingham outlined his plan but said it would take a week or two to get sufficient evidence against the viola tors More than twelve weeks have howeverITwo weeks ago orders were given to the police to see that every saloon was closed tight on Sunday morning Three Sundays have passed since that order was given and it has been obeyed to the letter As a result it has been well night impossible to ob tain intoxicants on Sunday morn ing At 1 oclock in the after noon however the saloons are per mitted to open for the sale of intoxi cants The facts are well known to the police but in no instance has a saloon keeper been molested Sunday afternoon every saloon in Louisville with three exceptions was wide open The curtains were liftedscreens removed as in the days before the lid was thought of The hotel bars were thrown wide open in the afternoon This program is pleasing to the Democratic office holders They be lieve that the law abiding elements will be satisfied with it and will accept I sincerity it as proof of Gov Beckhams SMALLHOUS Feb GMillard Hallows and sis ter Miss Fredrica Bir have return ed home from an extended visit to North Carolina Sam

Considered Calm v v ly and Dispassionately fll j The bungling brutality of a Mis souri shpri in hanging a criminal ajevrlays ago suggests the JRtimeli bl a formal protest against the infliction of the death penalt- for crime4 It is the experience of all ages that mankind departs with sluggish reluctance fromlaws and customs already made venerably by uses Thi in mind I can scarcely hope for the credit of attention in against a custom bearing the un broken sanction of historic timesan that is at the same time so consonant with that spirit of vengeance inkier ent in every human mind Whatever our established theological no tions of the nature of death to the cold reason of the profoundest think ers that have graced the earth it remains forever an inscrutable mys tery and the passing up of a human soul to a conditionthe terms of which we cannot know must beatmost but unreckoned risk As a civic problem capital punish ment must be regarded wholly as a question of expediency If killing criminals by law will more effectuta ly restrain men from the commission of crime than other forms of punish ment then on purely civic grounds capital punishment were justified but this evidence wanting the trend of modern thought is setting strongly against the barbaric custom The doctrine that society has a right to exist even at the price of the lives of its citizens is very an cient and universally accepted SUChlsober t themselves put to death the first for corrupting the minds of the no ble youth Greece the last for cor rupting the religion of the provinces of Rome How strange that the hu man conscience has not revoked a law that made possible the bloody slaughter of these first Princes of the earth How often since this revolting law has led innocence to the block and the gibbet only the record ing angels know With the profoundest sympathy for all the weaknesses of a weak race always forgiving and always praying to be forgiven yet I often find my self in unguarded moments gloating over the possible execution of a Dr Murphy or a Harry Thaw but in my sober moments with passion not moved by recent recital of re volting crime and reason weighing conIternand inexcusable crime of organized society With the crudeness of so ciety the frequency of capital pun ishment increases until we reach a state of savagery where the bloody custom had its origin Here the I wildness of unrestrained passion for revenge gloats over violence revels in torture It were strange that the process of a sober court of the realm having in mind only the security of society and the mad method of the howling cursing mob of the viscious and vulgar rabble should be pursued to the same end Has not the policy of States to preservej the public by appealing to lowest and basest of human passions been pursued already too long When was it man did not hate the thing he feared When was it that threats of vengeance moved mans I heart to goodness If I seem to argue against all punishment for crime itI because the spirit of venge jancd rather than the spirit of mer ciful necessity seems behind it all I Whether it is the grewsome scaffold the fil th jail or the dark forbidding penitentiary the

A S of E was held at the court house in Owensboro last Friday with all counties in the dis= trict represented About fifty dele= gates were in attendance The meeting was on the wholeurir usually harmonious There were some differences of opinion on several subjects but there were none of the heated discussions that for merly marked meetings of the dis I trict body as well as of the Daviess county union The fact that several important matters were considered in this spirit indicates that factional ism in the district has been eliminat ed and that a united fight will be made on the J907 crop It was decided that there are to be no more newspaper discussions between members of the society I Newspaper articles contributed on Equity subjects hereafter are to be liminated to official announcements and such other general information as it may be necessary to promul gate by that means Questions of warehousing and finance and all oth er discussions are barred Another important matter was the passage of a resolution instruct ing the executive board to advertise for propositions for the financing of the 1907 crop By this means it is believed that the best result will be obtained and that a plan of financ ing will be secured on which all Equity men in the district can agreeA contract was drawn and adopted Tne committee which drafted the pledge was composed of John P Foster E B McEuen J H Burney L N Robertson G S Wilson and John E Minnett There was considerable discussion of the various phases of the pledge particularly that prohibiting a landowner from assiging his allowance i of 10000 hills to a tenant David Moreland of Ohio county Presi dent of the State organization fa vored this feature of the pledge I have tenants he said but I want no unfair favoritism This thing of allowing a man to transfer his 10000 hills to another man is not justice nor is it equity The pledge finally reportedand adopted is in full as follows We the undersigned hereby pledge our honor that we will not plant or have planted on land that we own or control for the year 1907 more than 10000 hills to the hand or 5000 hills to the half hand Ev ery person who is sixteen years of age or over on the first day of September 1907 shall be counted ia hand and every person who on that date will be twelve but less than sixteen shall be counted aluM hand This applies strictly to those who work in the tobacco field no one being allowed to transfer his al lowance to any other person Binding ourselves under the penalty of having our names published to the world as persons of dishonor

several of the larger mine owners and that if others who have not yetI formed an opinion can be j upon tpcome into the consolidationI the dealwill undoubtedly go throughThe are reticent on the subject of the proposed consolidation but admit that the merger I would have its advantages Among other things which they think would be accomplished by such a move would be the securing of letter transportation facilities from the Illinois Central railroad It is not stated by the owners whether or not the attitude of the railroad inI the past has had anything t do with the contemplated

over THE groundhog must have seen his shadow early in the morning SENATOR BAILEY has a very poor opinion of about thirty members of the Texas Legislature WHOEVER the CounerJoimmi finally decides to nominate for Governor on the Republican ticket will be elected in November WHAT a pity that any one in Hartford should suffer for coal when the whole town is underlaid with a thick vein within less than five hundred feet of the surface WE presume they are carrying on their usual vocations in New York in addition to conducting the Thaw trial though one would not suspect as much from the newspa pers OHIO COUNTY citizens are very much like the Arkansas traveler on the subject of roads When they are bad it is winter and they can not be mended When summer comes they do not need it I THE A S of E has about covered Ohio county but there are a great many locals which need more mem bers and there must be more material in their locality Let this spring and summer be devoted to strength ening all the local unions KENTUCKY should be represented at Jamestown even though it must I be by popular subscription What a shame that it must be so The late Legislature found funds to i throwaway for needless offices and j to raise salaries of political henchmen of the administration but the schoolchildren of Kentucky must help provide a fund to give us respectable representation at an exposition to be held in our mother State As PREDICTED in these columns some time agothe Caleb Powers case when called at Georgetown this week was continued until summer It is the intention of those in power to have this trial a feature of this years State campaign However if we mistake not the people of Kentucky are sick and weary of the continued efforts upon the part of the State machine to make political capital out of this case and it may become a boomerang upon those engaged in this persecution Strange that this case must always be pulled off just before an important elec tion THE selection of Thos L Walker for Postmaster at Lexington is a most deserving one Mr Walker has been a faithful party worker and besides being a deserving Repub lican he is thoroughly competent Our own fellow countyman Hon Alvis S Bennett will most likely succeed Mr Walker as Secretary to the State Central Committee No better man could be found for the place He is perhaps personally acquainted with more of the rank and file of the party than anyone who could be selected Senator Bennett belongs to no faction and could therefore be depended upon to be just to all elements of the party We hope the State Central Committee will select him as Mr Walkers successor THE PARTY NEWSPAPER- In an article by Editor John U McCall of the Ithica Michigan Herald the true worth of the party organ is depicted and some of its just grievances set forth He truly says I would not take one laurel from the brow of our great leaders I would not belittle the triumphs of luI ft Lour 00 1 splendid orators and stars men who itfthe hjlla bf Congress on We platform bVn grave times oLtesponsibility have shaped he- deattnes ofthir party or stite Qr nation Great leaders are absolute ly essential without them thereto be noplan no party nor govern merit Without them liberty becomes license and public opinion a disorganized and chaotic mob Po liU platforms too are necessary to free government They express in the main the purpose of party eJicl ayer But of what use are par ty platforms and party leaders with out the press the medium of com munication with the public The three graces of political progress are the platform the press the people but the greatest of these is the press It is the link which unites the other two Through the press the makers of parties come into touch with the wishes of the people and party plans are elucidated and impressed upon the minds and hearts of the people The press sets up and pulls down leaders makes and unmakes par ties It finds its way into the homes It goes where the political orator cannot go In the quiet of the even ing after the days work is done the voter too weary to attend a late and noisy political gathering un moved by passion and cheers reads his paper and forms an honest can did opinion He reads the party platform and party speeches The spellbinder lurid oratory brass bands and torch light processions are gone forever Campaigns are con ducted along educational lines and the press is the great teacher The newspaper has become an educational force undreamed of in the early days of the republic The publisher of a party newspa per gives up much He makes many more sacrifices than the public knows or suspects The time was when patronage was thought to be the sovereign balm for all edi tors wounds That time is speedily passing It is very consoling to have fought bled and almost died to land an aspiring candidate to office to have him when fairly establish ed behind the fees or salary thereof suddenly become imbued with conscientious conviction that he ought to show no political favors in giving out the patronage of his office An official who takes this position ought to be sent to the po litical Orphan Asylum as soon as an opportunity presents When officers are elected on a nonpartisan ticket and Republican newspapers stand just as good chance under a Democratic officer as Democratic papers do it may be ml order for Republican officers to work the non partisan dodge There is much in the way of job work advertising and subscription which as neutral papers we could command and of which by the very fact that we are conducting party papers we are deprived It would be just as honest and no doubt more I profitable to publish a neutral pa 1 per devoted exclusively to news in stead of a partisan paper If a pa per demands money for the support of a candidate of its own party it is branded a cutthroat or striker If an editor gives his space gratis and works his brain overtime to pull his party through a hard campaign ten to one some political ingrate will give his patronage to the other paper to make himself solid for the next election Then when offices jandother patronage are passed around it makes the loyal newspa per man boil to see some political nondescript given a fat job while the honest hardworking capable editor is sent back to whoop em up for the boys It is not always so but it is too often so Every Republican newspaper man should demand from his party the entitledIwhimper He does not need to do this He can and should run such a paper as will be indispensable to the success of his party He can and should get his share of the patron age and preferment without the I loss of selfrespect IInFond Memory Of mother Mrs Euphemie May who died January 18 1907 aged 52 years She was a faithful I Christian having

in CircuitCourt for nearly a week terminated yesterday in a verdict for the plaintiff Claude Bolmg for 6250 The case had been in the hands of the jury since Monday afternoon and there had been some disagreement as to what amount should be awarded Some of tbe jurors were in favor of giving the full amount asked for10000 while others believed that 2500 would be enough The amount finally agreed on was a compromise verdictClaude Boling is an eighteenyear old boy who came to Owerisbon several months ago from Hancock county and took a job at the factory of the defendant company When he had been there a few days one of his hands was cut off by a ripsaw while he was trying to oil he machinery The plaintiff proved to the satisfaction of the jury that the defendant company was guilty of negligence in not giving Boling proper instructions as to howtodothe work They Will Stand Pat Des Uulnet Capital President Roosevelt and Congress will stand pat on the Tariff question They believe in

congratulated It was never more prosperous than at the present time Demagogues and knockers have been howling for an overhauling of Tariff yearsIthe spring of 1909 Meantime the national Republican

For Chris tian Scientists Erected by an Old Woman Owenclioro Iles + rnt er- A bushel of Bibles sealed up in a crypt in the wall a mysterious air about the workmen the care with which the place is guarded the re fusal of the contractor to give out any information and the lonely hab its and unique character of the wom an who is having the work done have caused the residents of the Stanley neighborhood no little astonishment and speculation concerning the pos sible purpose for which a substantial and costly building is being erected The building is going up three miles below Stanley off the railroad and away from the main highways It is nearly completed It has cost more money than any other building in that section of the country And nobody knows what it is being built for The work is being done by a Louisville contractor who is employ ed by Mrs Nannie OGullet an aged woman who now lives in a cabin a short distance from where the mys terious house is going up Mrs OGullet is a Christian Sciefi tist She is the wjdow of 1 OGullot who for fifty years was a well known residence of the Rome section Three years ago William OGullet died leaving considerable fortune to his widow who shortly afterwards moved to the house where she now lives A few month ago a force of work ing men appeared on her land one morning and began nreparations for I building a house From the begin ning it was apparent that this house wusto be of rather pretentious dimen lions hut none of the people of that neighborhood supposed that it would ever assume the propositions that now appear It is three story and of ample length and breadth The people of the neighborhood believe that Mrs OGullett is build lug a school fur Christian Scientists Thoy any that some of the rooms have been equipped with school desks Once Mrs OGullet was seen to place a great pile of Bibles in a nich in the wall which was later clos ed up by the workmen If it is not a school building then the people who have watched

sparsely populated dis trict in the dry belt near Kamloops B Cot north of Spokane is believed to be the solution of what wa thought to be a murder mystery for seven years The discovery was made by a Kamloops Indian who became sepa rated from his companions while on a hunting trip a short time ago when he was surprised to hear a womans voice in answer to his shouts The woman told that he was the first Indian she hadseen since 1900 when she was forcibly carried off by a white man with long hair and beard While they were talking the man appeared andat the point of a rifle ordered the In dian to depart Chief Louis who heard the Indians story has taken the matter up with the provincial police and as soon as overland travel is possible a search will be made It is expected the famous Bridge

Probably tri itlal Number r We can only guess when the first man conceived the notion of tieinj stick and a stone together to form- a better club or weapon than he could get by using either separately Probably this stone club was the first tool invented says Charles H Cochrane in The Circle magazine of February It enabled the possessor to overcome stronger animal The man or manbrute as he was then had only to firida stone of about the righ shape break oft a treelimb to suit him and tie them tightly together with fine roots hair orsinewsFrom stone club it was but a step to the stone hammer stone hatchet and spearhead and a long line of stone implements It is ap parent that once man began to use stones and to chip them into shapes that were best for certainpurposes The round stone with a handle be came a maul or hammer in fact the very word hammer is from the old Scandinavian hawttiorr which means both rock and hammer The flat edged stone he used as a hatchet or ax the pointed stones served as spear or lanceheads flat thin stones were chipped into scrapers and when this paleolithic man got an ex tra sharpedged piece he used it for a knife and the thin pointedstone served as a awl It is natural to suppose that men first hunted for the desired shape of stone and later took to chipping themIEven the saw was known to these preadamities who serrated the edge of some of their stone knives and left them in their caves where they have furnished us the evidence of their ingenuityIThe first stone implements doubt less were tied to the stick or handle then an inventive genious learned to bore a hole in the stick and inserted I the pointed end of the stone A brighter gemous bored a hold in the stone itself for the insertion of the stick this being the highest type of stone

that touches every interest in the land For upon wages rests all prosperity that of the capitalist and the laborer of the employer and the employe of the business man and the professional man The term is commonly confined to the interest of the wageearner Many men do not reflect upon its real meaning andapplication Last year there was paid in only about seven thousand out of nearly twenty thousand industrial estab lishments in New Jersey a total of 128163801 in wages an increase of about 33000000 annually in five years in the same industries Where did this vast wealth go Some of it was placed in savings banks to be loaned out to business enterprises that employ capital and labor but the great bulk went to storekeepers doctors dentists and others and to landlords in payment of rent Some was invested in prop ertyThe wages thus disbursed were manna for everybody The storekeeper had a profitable trade and the professional man a lemunera tive practice Real estate owners4s earned a good interest in the rents they received and property values were increased by rentals and by sales of property Cut wages in halfand what would i vr ensue Withdraw from fcirciilation n It large percentage

could see that he would much have preferred a postal or der But at last a serious attempt is to be made by parliament to teach the Frenchman how to make use of the check It will however require the
