pel Report A persistent rumor and one bearing the appearance of veracity comes from Frankfort to the effect that the court of appeals has decided the Loulsvlll election cases in favor of the fusion ists and holding that no election was held when the present city officers were elected This means that an other election will have to be held in Louisville in November of this year The rumor has created some ex citement In Louisville It appears that both Democratic and fusionist lead ers got the tip Monday afternoon but kept It more or less quiet except among their own sets Members of both parties when asked about the matter admit that such is their un derstanding of the situation but no one of them undertakes to say that he got his information direct from any member of the court of appeals bench It Is understood that the dlcislor was reached by a vote of five to one Judge Cautrill not voting There Is no information as to which of the judges dissented from the decis Ion of the majority A Frankfort dispatch says When cases on appeal are submitted to the Kentucky Court of Appeals for de cision any effortto ascertain what the court is doing in their consideration or how any of the court stands upon any proposition presented on the ap peal Is very much frowned upon by the Judges of the court The publica tion of rumors as to the outcome of the cases came as a great surprise to court officials and others here That the Infromatlon is generally accpeted here as correct caused the publication to be more surprising as such infor mation could only come from the con sultation room of the court through some member of it who confided to some one outside how his associates stand upon the questions presented on the appeal Owing to the secrecy which hedges about the court here In Its consultations the first news that the case had been assigned to Judge John M Lassing came here from Lou isville as did Information Thursday night of last week that the case had been up In consultation during the af ternoon of that day Interest natural ly being greater at Louisville in tin cases the rumors came first from that city and then to officials here asking verification or that they be dispelled From the first day that the case came up in consultation the rumors have been most persistent that the judg ment oT the lower court would be re versed and a declaration made that the election held in 1905 is Invuld for fraud sufficient to rise a question of who was elected to the offices In contest Following the next consultation came the story that the court stood five for reversal and one for affirmance and next the rumor that all six Judges fa vored reversal and the holding of an other election for city and county of fices Death of F 0 Austin Flavius Odell Austin was

Everybody invited M H Be E TO BE DI RECT LINE TO ST LOUIS Gap From Morpanfield to Shaw neetown to be Built at Once The Morgaufleld Sun is authority for the statement that the L N Railroad Co Is soon to build a road front Morgaufleld to Shawneetown Ill a distance of twelve miles thus com pleting a direct line in connection with thetvAI H and E from Louisville to St Louis It says The Sun is in possession of suffi cient information however to justify the prediction that it is only u question of a very short time when our city will be on a through line of that great system The L N All that is necessary to accomplish that great end is to fill the gap between here and Shawneetown Ill a distance of perhaps twelve miles That would give the L N a through route from Nashville to St Louis from three to four hours short er than by way of Evansville And as soon as the line now being built out of Madlsouville The M H and E Is completed a route four or five hours shorter from Louisville to St Louis That the L N officials have In contemplation the immediate exten sion of the M A can be stated al most authoritatively- The filling up of this gap will make a trunk line of the new road now In process of construction through Ohio county It will likewise greatly en hance the Importance of the road and the benefits to the people of the coun ty as well as other sections through which It runs It has since the very Inception of the proposal to build through Ohio county been the conten tion of those In a position to know that the M H and E will be one of the most important of L and N lines

Shaft Yields Great Returns Marfa Tex May HTom Borgus came in from the Chlnnti mountains sixty miles southwest of here th other day and laid in enough camp supplies to run him and his men several weeks He is trying to reopen the famous Muerta mine which is said to be haunted Tim mine is the terror of the Mexicans of the upper portion of the Rio Grande border and they can not be inducmed to visit the locality where it is situated much less enter its dark and grewsome shaftBorgus is an old mining man He has prospected all over the west and southwest and in many mining districts of Mexico He was In Chihua hua a few months ago when the story of the Mucrla mine was told him by a mexican who was down there from Presidio del Norte ttorgus made up his mind to take hold of the property He came to Maria and hind no trou ble in obtaining title to the mine He spent some time trying to organ ize a working force among the Mexi cans of this section Not a man be found who was willing to go with Borgus to the mine and help him work it Finally Borgus went over into New Mexico and employed twentyfive Mexicans to work in tine mine He said nothing to them about the shaft and underground working being haunted He brought these laborers to Mar fa by train and rushed thorn out to the mine without giving then an op portunity to talk with any of the local Mexicans- In less than a week the whole body of laborers were In Maria again They had deserted their work despite time vehement objections of Borgus When questioned as to the cause of their quitting the Jobthe Mexicans shrugged their shoulders and answered Spirits The leader of the gang of Mexicans told a thrilling story of the adventure- of the men He said that the shaft is about 100 feet deep and at its bot tom a drift or tunnel extends to chamber of considerable size which it appears a considerable quan tity had been removed at some period in eiIIdentof rich silver ore was found at tint far end of the chamber Soon after their arrival at the mine Borgus set the men to work cleaning out tint shaft and straightening up the decaying timbers Some of the Mexicans remarked while employed In this work j that they heard strange rumblings which seem to come from the Interior of the mountain Borgus laugh ed away their fears and told them the noises were only the echoes of the sounds from their own picksiWhen the shaft was cleaned an ex ploration of the tunnel and chanrbemI was made Borgus set the work carrying the ore which was III time chamber to the surface Shortly after they started in on this the skeleton of a minor was uncovered from tine rubbish This grewsome sight unnerv the superstitious Mexicans and a few minutes later when au unearthly sound which seemed to coup from mi der their very feet was heard and was accompanied by a strong gust ofi wind that extinguished the lights evI cry man of them dropped their tools anti fled in terror out of the chamber and up in the ladder In the shaft to the open air above Borgus was at tin surface and he witnessed the exit of the men with no little dismay lit j could not Induce them to return to work and despite his entreaties they left the place and came to Mar fatShortly after his experience with first lot of Mexicans Borgus welltjl Eagle Pass where he employed u number of Japanese who had been working in coal mines at Las Esper Mexico He asked each man if was superstitious and believed in ghosts and all of them replied In the negative He took the Japanese to the mine a short time ago He says that he did not care to take the risk of having them

Mr DorI gus admits that the noise is to be I heard at intervals in the mine and tha It is very terrifying Ho says that there is nothing supernatural about the demonstration however and that it Is undoubtedly produced by the wind escaping through an unseen opening In the back part of the cham ber He lias tried to find this mys terlous opening but has not succeed ed so far He thinks by sinking a shaft into the chamber from above a new air current will be formed and that the unearthly noise will cease The ancient mining records on file In the archives of the State of Cone hullo Mexico at Saltlllo art said to show that the Muerta minI was oper aled by the Spaniards more than a century ago It was abandoned on ac count of the mysterious and weird demonstrations that were said to have occurred in the underground workings Efforts have been made at intervals of every few years during the last half century to reopen tho mine III every instance the superstitious Mexicans were frlghtneed away on ac count of the alleged spirits A few years ago an American took hold of time properly and set a gang of Mexl cans to work in the mine Several of them yore In the funnel and chamber

all of them asserted positively that the earth trembled violently and that an Invis dIble force seemed to lift them off of their feet while the demonstration wa going on The Mexicans could not he

BURNED IN PLACE OF COAL Secret of a Cobblers Woad erf Compound Has Been Discovered The remarkable secret for burning ashes with coal discovered by John Ellmorc an Altoona Pa cobbler and which has excited attention ammo the world over Is out Almost ever householder In Altoona Is now using It with great saving In coal bills Several well known chemists Imme diately after It was announced that Elmore had solved the problem of obtaining heat from ashes set to wor to try to discover the formula They were successful and here It Is Common salt one pound Oxalic acldtwo ounces Water one gallon Mix and moisten a mixture containing one partI coal and three parts ashes and a ter fuel than pure coal is obtained The ashes of anthracite coal burn as readily as do those of bltuminus This mixture will upon being placed upon a burning fire fuse into a coke like mass and deposit but little residue The chemical action o this compound is thus explained When an aqueous solution of an al kaline salt such as common salt i mixed with coal ash the result 1 that a mild lye is formed which when mixed with any combustible material such as coaland upon the application of heat gives off oxygen gas thus enabling rapid combustion The addition of oxalic acid cause- a chemical change of greater value than the first for the reason that it results in the formulation of a car bide which in turn gives off acety lone gas thus adding to the Intensity of the heat and faclliating complete combustionIt upon moistening a small quality of ashes without the addition of coal to really detect the odor of acetylene gasand If the treat ed ashes are placed upon a lighted fire they will fuse and burn to a fine powderThe compound Is now being used in many large industrial and mercantile places and it is claimed fo it that It has reduced the fuel item more than half It has eliminated almost entirely the question of disposition of ashes which has been considerable where great quantities of coal are consumed Ellmore who discovered the secret and focused attention upon the pos sibilities that lurked in ashesclaims that his patent will protect him in his secret He says he has receive- an offer from the British Government provided he can demonstrate the prac ticability of his compound While It Is everywhere conceded that Ellmore has conferred a great- boon t upon humanity It Is feared tha he will not derive any tangible bene fits from his discovery In view of the fact that hundreds of others have se cured the same results following his lead 1 A Sufficient Prayer May the Lord help you make Buck

IN BRON- ZEr of The Indian Girl Confirms That Fact in Stranger Than Fiction Some historians have said that the little Indian Princess Pocahontas did more to influence tho fate of the west ern continent than any other cwomai in the world except Queen Isabella The life of the Indian girl makes a strange appeal to the Imagination superhumanscourage womanly compassion youth sincerity love and selfcontrol go to make a character which is romantic beyond any Ideal creation of the poet or romancer ands illustrates the truth of the old saying that fact is stranger than fiction It was at the beginning of the seventeenth century when Po cahontas was a careless maiden In her fathers wigwam the beginning of that century which marked the death of Shakespeare 1n 1G1C the greatest dramatic poet of our race and the beginning of the white mans dominion upon the western territory Pocahon tas acted with unhesitating decision and determination The dramatic mo ment the sculptor lies seized upon is that which represents Pocahontas as she stands before Captain John Smith mid his heroic band and with out stretched hands and trembling lips bids them save themselves from the danger which threatens them The savages after a trial and powwow had dragged Smith to two great stones which had been placed before Powhatan being ready with their clubs to beat out his brains as the old accounts have itbut Pocahontas When no entreaty could prevail got his head in her arms and laid her own upon his to save him from his death At the date of this heroic rescue Poca hontas was not more than twelve years of age and to all appearance a little Algonquin savage But this one act showed the courage and determination which ran through her whole short and pathetic life She repeatedly stood between her fathers savage nature and saved the white men at the risk of her own life Such is the picture which the sculp tor has endeavored to place before the mind and eyes of the beholder who visits the quiet and lovely surround of Jamestown Va and beholds lingsnew bronze statute which the daugh ters of the Pocahontas Association and the Daughters of the Revolution have placed thereFrom How Poca hontas Has

DECREASING Three Times as Much Timber Used Each Year as The Forest Grows Every person In the United States Is using over six times as much woodI as ho would use if he were in Europe The country as a whole consumes evI ery year between three and four times more wood than all of the forests orI the United States grow in the meantime The average acre of forest lay up a store of only 10 cubic feet annu ally whereas it ought to be laying up at least 30 cubic feet in order to fur nish the products taken out of it Since 1880 more than 700000000 feet of timber have been cut for lumber alone including 80000000000 feet of coniferous timber in excess of the to tal coniferous stumpage estimate of the Census of 1SSO These are some of the remarkable statements made in the Circular 97 of the Forest Service which deals with the timber supply of the United Slates and reviews the stumpage estimates made by all the Important authorities A study of the circular must lead di rectly to the conclusion that the rate at which forest products in the Unit ed States have been and are being consumed Is far too lavish and that only one result can follow unless steps are promptly taken to prevent waste in use and to increaes the growth rate of every acre of forest in the United States This result is a tim ber famine This country is today in the same position with regard to forest resources as was Germany 150 years ago During this period of 150 years such German States as Saxony and Prussia particularly the latter have applied a policy of government control and regulation which has im mensely increased the productivity of their forests The same policy will achieve even better results In the United States because we have the advantage of all the lessons which Europe has learned and paid for in th course of a century of theory and prac lice Lest it might be assumed that the rapid and gaining depletion of Amer ican forest resources Is sufficiently accounted for by the Increase in population since 1SSO is barely more than halt the Increase In lumber cut In the same period Two areas supplying timber have already reached and pass ed their maximum production the Northeastern States in 1870 and the Lake States In 1890 Today the Sout ern States which cut yellow pine amounting to onethird the total an nual lumber cut of the country are undoubtedly near their maximum The Pacific States will soon take the ascendency The State of Washing ton within a few years has come to the front and now ranks first of all Individual States In volume of cut At present but onefifth of the to tal forest area of the United States is embraced in National Forests The remaining fourfifths have already passed or are most likely to pass In to private hands The average age of the trees felled for lumber this year is not less than 150 years In other words if he Is to secure a second crop of trees of the same size the lumberman or private forest owner must wait say at least one hundred year for the second crop to grow Asa rule such long time Investments a this waiting would Involve do not commend themselves to business men who are accustomed to quick returns the States

institu tions seem as immovable as the ever lasting hills A proposal to change some of these things would be called a sacrllegeslnce the memory of 1mn runneth not to the contrary concern ing them We witness this reluct once to change in the simple matter of moving a country church to the village close by Whoever heard of this being done without friction of some kind Some would be compel ed togo a little further that others might not have so far to go A great deal of human nature Is thus displayed But In the west matters are in a- more fluid state men and things are In flux They are laying the foundations to empire It Is a stimulating t and thought enkindling work Many old questions must be settled again and many new ones must be met In changing from a territorial con Jk + dition to the condition fo a sovereign State many changes occur A notable change often occurs In fixing the county seats of counties Many harrowing and bloody tragedies have bee enacted in such changes As might be expected whether east or west there arises among the towns a keen rivalry for the prize Sensibly other things being equal the county seat should be as near the center of the county- as possible But frequently other conditions arise which modify this work- Ing principle If a town has once se cured the countyseat even If It be much removed from the center and other advantages be absent do you suppose the citizens of that towncan be easily shown he propriety of transferring the seat to a more advantageous position If you suppose this showing can bo easily accomplished try it A ease in point comes to view A small town In Oklahoma Territory to one side of the county has gained tho county seat at an early date probab ly because of railway improvementAs time passed and were realized It was seen by most citi zens of the county that the seat of the county should be moro central A town near the center of time county with three railroads passing thru it presented itself readily as the proper place A legal movement was made to secure this end Stern opposition was made by the existing county seat They counted considerably on possession being nine points In the law But they did not guard well the tenth point The case came up in court and after a vigorous fight was decided in favor of the central town Deter mined to make delay In any case thoe defeated resolved to spring an Injunc I Lion on the victors The victors sus petting title movement or gaining some inkling of It decided on sl rate gy The court house was a small build ing That very night the injunction no yet being served they without resting on their honorsgatheced quiet ly at the midnight hour with horses and wagons and attaching two or three wagons at each side of the building as quietly hauled the house with all it contents undisturbed eighteen miles across the country to the new sltua flan They arrived in safety and set the coure house on its foundation and thus soon had every thing in running order according to the decree of the courtA belated Injunction was found In one of the pigeon holes And thus the transfer was happily made without extra friction and with out bloodshed The humor of the situation soon presented Itself to all and good will was restored 1And thus ended one notable Coun tyseat fight NED MOTT IKentuckye Iniquitous Free System Kentucky suffers from an Iniqui tous free system To indicate one forum only of the abuse we refer today to the workings of the act requir ing warants to be isued against de linquent taxpayers before levy can be made by the Sheriff Not one cent of the additional cost to the taxpayer goes It appears Into the State or coun ty treasuries Every cent Is pocketed by clerks and sheriffs The clerk re ceives from 150 to 200 for each war rant the Sheriff fifty cents besides an extra commission of G per teat o the amount involved We are credibly Informed that in lone county alone lSOO such wm r8ut were last year Issued in one count alone

pay promptly she Is served with a warrant She Is in se quence obliged to pay besides the 1 tax on the dog 150 to the clerk fit ty cents for reporting to the clerkten cents penalty to the State or county and six cents extra commission to 360ebesides the Interest provided for Thus are the poor preyed upon by the sat raps and underlings of the Frankfort machineTho party will when i assumes control of the State permit no such Infamy to continue With such Injustice practiced on the poor it is no surprise that thousands of Kentuckians seek homes in other States The Frankfort machine taxes capital from out of the State already impass8blnwall against outside enterprise and then drives away the struggling mass es by fees piled upon taxes The voters of the State will next fall have an opportunity to decide whetherI Kentucky is for Kentuckians ravenous and Insatiable gang of tax eaters On that decision much tuft depend On it will depend the welfare of the present generation and of

IN Walter Howard a Old Boy Lost His Life Near Rome Walter Howard the fifteenyear old son oC Hugh Howard was drowned In Panther creek near his home on the old Cogwell place in the Rome about 2 oclock Sun day afternoon The boy had plunged into the creek where the water wasI about fifteen feet deep for a swim The water was quite cold and It IsI supposed that cramps by the shock of the plunge into the cold water rendered the boy unable to swim He never arose to the sur face of the water W M Coomes who was preparing to go in bathing with the youth and who was the only witness to the tragedy says that at one time he saw the boys arm wav- Ing frantically just below the surface of the water but that the body never came to the surface i Mr Coomes was unable to swim but waded into the water as far as possible in an effort to reach young Howard The bank at that point is very steep and the boy had plunged from the bank sheer into fifteen feet of water Mr Coomes was not able to come anywhere near him as he struggled in the water The body sank to the bottom from which place it was recovered two hours later No adequate means were at hand for a speedy recovery of the body Magistrate F W Clark was notified and held an inquest The jury returned a verdict of accidental feature of the tragedy is that the boy had neither father nor mother near him His mother died a short time ago find his father Hugh Howard is in Melrose N M where he was preparing to locate He had written his children only a few days before that he was pleased with the country and would send for them in a short lime The

Monday afternoon by the people congregated on the river banks There appeared about 4 oclock in the after noon large blocks of manufactured ice floating in the river and about four hundred pounds of ice was takfen out by men around the wharf The Ice blocks averaged about a hun dred pounds and appeared to have been in the river for quite a while It presented a problem that baffled theI best of them Here Is the problem If the current would carry the blocks of Ice at the rate of four miles anJ hour and the blocks weighed 230 pounds in their original state andI weighed about a hundred when they arrived at this point where did they start from Dr Hugh Klmbley and various oth er owners of gasoline launches areI hoping that the flow of Ice will continue all summer as it will add greatly to the pleasures of river ex cursionists Mr Fred Bender said that there were many blocks that es caped the men who were gathring them and that there were about twentyfive locks which passed down

f 1M c DELICIOUS SOUP POURS FROM SPRING Favored Spot ip Allen County Ky Which is Much Atfect ed by Hobos Bowling Green Ky May 1GFor some time numbers of tramps have been noticed passing through the city in the direction of Allen county and effort was made to locate the at tractlonbut each knight of the road refuses to give anyexplanation as to his destination Yesterday the secret leaked out and now many of Bowling Greens loafing population are making their exodus It happened this way A huskylooking individual unload ed from a side door Pullman and approached Capt Thomas L Reagan- of the police department and asked that official if he could tell him the direction of Allen county Capt Reagan questioned him closely as to his destinatlonbut the travleer would give no information until he was placed un der arrest He said he had taken an oath not to divulge the secret but if he was released he would tell all Of this he was assuredand he proceeded- In this manner There is a spring in Allen county near Buttersvllle which during three months of the year runs a solid stream of boiling soup A little salt and pepper is all that is needed to have a bowl of soup as good as any hotel can furnishIThe spring is located In a remote section inhabited only by the weary class who have a three months out- Ing each year and live only on soup from the spring It is said many tramps are searching Allen county for the spring as Ponce De Leon searched for the fountain of youth Se The Time is Short The opportunity to secure a yearly subscription to The Louisville Herald in connection
