BAIL So Orders Trial Judge Mor ris at Georgetown Jury Stood Ten for Acquittal and Two for Convic tion After being Imprisoned for nearly partisancomplicity In the assassination of Senator William Goebel came within one vote of being granted his liberty last Saturday at the conclusion of his fourth trial which has been In progress for the last eight weeks According to the official count the Jury stood tn for acquittal and two for conviction but It is authoritatively votedjconic over for acquittal if lilsasso Ito would do likewise The failure this twelfth man to budgu was the cause of the hung jury The biggest surprise of the trial came when James S Morris the pre siding Judge refused to grant the prisoner ball In view of the fact that eleven out of the twelve Jurors who tried him were willing to sign a verdict that he was innocent of the crime charged This action on the part of Judge Morris in view of Powers be- Ing long confined and in poor honlih In addition to the strong dufoiiBe ho made Is unfavorably criticised byclti zeng throughout the stale Irrespective sot party affiliation many expressing disapproval In unequivocal terms Ever since Foreman J L Price Fri day morning at 10 45 oclock announc olIwere kept to gether six months there was little hope of an agreement the public felt that the jury was hopelessly hung and that It was only a question of time un- tIl the court would discharge them and terminate the longdrawn out trial This climax was rwched Saturday at 1145 oclock when udgc Morris after receiving no word from the jury as to how they stood since entering the Jury room In the early morning sent a deputy sheriff to them to notify them to come Into court When they ap peared Judge Morris asked if they had been able to reach a verdict to which Foreman Price replied that they had not and if kept locked up for a year he did not believe they would be able to agree At this juncture J C Linden another member of the Jury arose and said to the court that ho did not regard Foreman Price as either physically of mentally capable of conducting the business of the jury and he felt that If allowed to remain for a reasonable length of time that an agreement could be reached Jurymen OHara and Juett also indicted their belief that if the jury was held together a few more days they would be able to make a verdict Up to this time no on eknew how tho jury stood Judge Morris how lover accepted the announcement made Foreman Price and at once end jurIpronounced tits word discharged and simultaneously with the announcement States Attorney Franklin and Major W C Owens of counsel for the defense jumped to their feet to offer motions both saying Your Honor at the same moment Judge Morris recognized Col Franklin who entered aI motion that the prisoner bo remanded to jail without ball and a new trial be fixed for sometime In July In this connection Col Franklin explained that the regular terms of the Circuit Court hero and In the other counties of the district would prevent an earlier trial Attorney Owens Insisted on enter Ing a motion for ball and asked the court to set a tlmo to hear arguments on the motion for ball which he stat ed would be made in writing and sup ported by proper affidavits Judge Morris set the hearing for 130 in the afternoon Tho ten who voted for acquittal crowded around Powers some of them with tears In their oyesand cordially shook hands with him and his attor neys By this time men and women In the audience caught the inspiration of the occasion and there was a rush t L 1 y f t for where Powers stood and for several minutes he was given an ovation scores of persons pressing around him shaking his hand and congratulating hlm upon the favorable outcome ot the case During this remarkable de monstration the two Jurors J L Price and J W Renaker who had stood for conviction stepped In the op J posits of the prosecution and shook hands with Arthur Goebel and States Attorney Franklin When Judge Morris announced that July G had been fixed as the date for a now trial of tho case Powers attor neys protested against taking so much time and Major Owens declared that ten days would be a sufficient Interim to get ready for a new trial Following the refusal of Judge Morris contrary to all established prece everyIexpress ed their belief In his Innocence tho attorneys for

Guaranteed to cure all sores by all Druggists 25c Origin of Profanity I h One proposition there is which needs I rID be stated emphatically at this point Words and phrases which are amjl sufficient for tho understanding are often altogether inadequate for the expression Of the feelings The result of this mental dissatisfaction with the communication of mere knowledge is most conspicuously illustrated in the wide prevalence of profanity Into the discussion of this practice Urn moral and religious aspect does not end at all It Is purlcy from tho n 1suJstfc side that It Is here to be con t So looking at Its existence tt and the extent of tho Indulgence in 1 fa bear out the truth of the principle 1 announced Whatever Intellectual 1 Justification there may be for profan t ky is based upon the fact that men are aiming to state stronly what they tfeel strongly Tho hablfls In conse quence subject to the general law governing Intenslvea To a very extent the practice of swearing Is specialty characterlstls of a rude and Imperfect drillUfctlon With the advance of culture profanity declares H declines not so much because men vlcIiousntends more to Its disuse than all th exhortations of moralists or the rebukes of divines Much must always be allowed In tho case of particular personS for the inflnency of early training and association Exceptions are therefore too numerous to lay down any positive rule still H i sate to say in general that a mans Intellectual development is largely delremlnded by the extent of his In dulgence in profanity No one indeed doubts Its wide prevalence at the pres pracIoven if slowly diminishing for centur lest This does not prove than men are better morally or Intellectually tha i hey were It does show however that there exists

esteemed contem poraries are exciting themselves von slderablo over the condition of affa- Irs in tho Dark Tobacco District Some of them are even clamoring for Fed eral interference wholly ignoring the basic fact that the Federal Courts have already token charge of the one real criminal on either side of this Issuethe Tobacco r ttf Certainly the situation is bad bad enough Rioting and various forms of lawbreaking are Indulged In Night riding is one of tho idustries We are no apologist for any crime that has been committed Wo are neither Ii defender nor an advocate of any law less actbut It is well enough for the gentlemen of the press to remember that the Tobacco Trust itself Initiated this reign of terror and was the first t6 perpetrate the crimes now so gen erally and fiercely denounced The or Ignal criminal of them all is the Toba co Trust If it were not Illegal Infamous and outrageous acts of the To bacco Trust in the past there would not now be the slglhtest disorder In any tobacco district in Kentucky For years the Tobacco Trust rob bed the tobacco growers of the fruits of their honest toll It destroyed com petition created monopoly and forced the farmer to sell his tobacco at prices dictated by itself without the slightest reference to the condition of the mar ket or the great natural law of supply and demanda In his testimony before the Govern ment Investigating committee at a session held In New York City Nov 25 Thomas B Yullle head of the leafbuying department of the Tobacco Trust admitted all this At the same time Caleb C Dula another officer and vice president of tho Tobacco Trust swore that It had practically destroy ed all business opposition that Is prln clpal competitors where now out of business or had been absorbed As demonstrating that it Is speaking by the records and not from mere words of mouth we call attention to this most recent evidence of the out lawry of the trust 0It is a matter of certainty that for several years t he trust took the farmers tobacco at whatever price It choose to pay for it That he was robbed goes without saying and is beyond dispute Dark tobacco sold at from 75 cents to 325 and Burley to k bacco suffered cruelly Tobacco suf bacco suffered cruelly Tobacco growers were financially snuffed out Hun dreds of them were forced to the wall and were wrecked and ruined trod fast upon each others heels through all the tobacco districts As a last resort the farmers banded themselves together to fight the trust How well they succeeded Is known by all men Dark tobacco moved up from 75 cents and 325 to 0 8 and 9 Burley heartened up amazingly In a large measure the trust was forc ed to come toterms by the farmers The events thus briefly and Imper I fectly sketched were the forerunners of those now occurring The Tobacco Trust is attempting to break down farmers protective associations of all decsrlptlons They are fighting to recover their lost ground and to re establish an era of low prcles of starvation and ruin to producers It is confidently predicted by their agents tobacco will be bought and slod from 2 to 4 per hundred lower than now On tho other hand the grower is fully alive to the seriousness of the situation to himself He remembers the slough of despond Into which the trust once cast himself an he does not propose to travel through the som bre valley of the shadow of financial I death agalnHe is well aware that he hat been robbed and plundered by the To bacco Trust in tho past and that the trap Is bolted and set for him now With hlmlt is a struggle for life and to the death for victory by the trust now means bondage to the trust for all time to come for the producer t In addition to all this the tobacco V farmer knows that the United States Government has declared the Tobacco Trust an outlaw corporation and Is indicting and prosecuting it in the j Federal Courts He knows further more that PresidentRoosevelt has personally denounced the Tobacco I nt Trust as of all

by simply SmOking a pipe a cigar or cigarette Choice of tobacco methods of smoking pipe I clealng and lighting the treatment of cigar ash and the use of cigarette ends are all straw that point which way the wind of disposition blows It Is of course difficult end at best always a thankless task to set up arbitrary definitions but if one must gen eralize it Is fairly safe to assert says the London Tribune that atf a rule pipe smokers differ largely from tho votaries of the cigarette in method and persistence There are however exceptions and at the present moment two of the most brlllant men of ouc day combine an Inveterate habit of pipe smoking with extreara volatile nervousness aid excitement It Is note worthy in judging character by smoke tnat both these men employ a cmmon method They light their pipes ever other second An entire box of mat ches is used regular to finish one full pipe of tobacco and the studies of both then who are personally un known to one another are literally strewn from end to end with burnt and wasted match sticks Smoking with these men Is simply a nearvous habit They do not trouble to keep their pipes alight but whenever they pause in thought or speech they strike a match Two puffs at the pipe and the tobacco is out again If it remained gurnlngand there was no occasion to strike a match when the next halt in their thoughst or speech occurred these two smokers would experience the utmost mental discomfortSome smokers are of a waste ful and extravagant nature and fling their cigarettes away when they are consumed to the extent of a third of their length Those people also are most be constantly doing something taking out or shutting up their pocket cases fumbling for matches lighting- a cigarette or throwing one away Fanciful and freak smokers are often Indolent The man who can squat for hours blowing smoke rings emitting the smoke from his nose or Inhaling the smoke for an extraordinary dura tion of time has generally a lack of vital

selfappointed mission in life Is to perform tricks In saloon bars refreshment rooms and railway waiting rooms for the diver sion of their companions Cigar smokers have frequently been characterized as men of expensive tast This ofcourse ts a very obvious con clusion but is really hard to establish Many cigar smokers show them selves to be persons of taste and dlssrlmlna tlon You can generally tell by facial expression whether they are genuine cigar lovers There is a stock broker among the acquaintances of the pres ent writer who looks absolutely a poet when he Is enjoying the full bouquet of a

great error which you fear Is about to be committed Mr Barnett has been a Republican all his life and never dreamed that he could ever be the cause of solicitude In the Courier Journal offlcebecause

gives him credit- UNJUST AND INHUMAN- The refusal of Judge Morris to grant Caleb Powers freedom upon proper fairrminded and reasonable men as unjust and inhuman Caleb Powers has already undergone severe penalty for being suspected of crime The fact that In the first trial which has allowed anything like an even chance to prove his innocence so great a majority of the jury should have declared him tree from guilt is reason enough to minds unbiased for permitting him that freedom which the law extends to men whose guilt is a matter of doubt Nothing is to be gained by continu ing to hold this man in durance when the purpose of justice to insure his trial could be as well served by allow ing him liberty under proper precau lion There Is no desire on the part of the defense to avoid trial Caleb Powers and his friends are satisfied that acquittal will follow sooner or la andnwith a Judge who will preside with thisrprisoner back to his cell in Georgetown jail savors of persecution and Judge Morris In a light that revealsI unenviable The action will demnatlon from all lovers of fair play and humanity irrespective of party The attitude of Judge Morris during thingskwe cerned a desire

Attorney would con sent to4aU He Is not the type of man who woum divert himself of partisan ship In sufficient measure to be just let alone generous to a victim in his power He has demonstrated in the

were Interested auditors at the proceed ingsJudge W T Fowler vice chairman of the County Association addressed the meeting and made a plea for the maintenance of law and the upholding of civil officials In the discharge of their duties Ho expressed the opinion that the newspapers were exaggerat ing the gravity of the local situation and thought that the sending of a gut ling gun here by Gov Willson was due to the report of rumors of the assembling of a great crowd in Hop klnsvlllo today Nobodyhe saldcould blame the Governor for doing what ho thought was necessary Judge Fow ler also characterized as newspaper bosh the reports of anonymous warn ings against the employment of negro labor In 1908 He impressed upon the members of the association their duty to do all In their power to prevent and stamp out lawlessness in this re gion lie was loudly applauded when he said that no cause even from the most oppressed farmers standpoint was sufficient to justify such crimes as had been perpetrated Ward Headley of Princeton arrived here this morning He said I am here as an attorney for the associa tion at the request of General Man ager Ewing to make it known that no gathering of members of the association has been called to meet In Hop kinsville today Not only has the association called no general assemblage of membersbut It Is opposed to any large meetings at present

preachedWe been held to account for the depredations about Hopkinsville Ky In that case men rode Into Hop klnsvllle from Trigg county at night and it was heralded as the act of the American Society of

v1T I f a THE BASEBALL CURV- An Old Timers Story of the Game That First Saw It IT WAS USED BY AN AMATEUR t According to This Old Professional r Player Arthur Cummings Was the Young Pitcher Who Was the Origi nator of the In and Out Shoots Speaking about the early history of baseball the other day an old time professional player said there were many things not known generally t There is for instance the matter of curve pitching Who pitched tho first curved ball No dont name any of the men that won pennants and got 110000 a year The pioneer wasnt a professional but an amateurthat is bo was an amateur until his curves made him famous His name was Arthur Cummings and ho was a New York boy a tall thin young fellow with hair as blond as a chorus girls How he came to discover curve pitching I dont know but it was generally believed afterward that bo hit on it by accident He tried it out for the first time in 1807 in a game between two icrub teams in Washington N The famous Excelsior club of New York was then visiting Washington as the guest of tho old National club and the two played a series of games oa the old White lot Toward the end of thehover with the Excelsiors make up a scrub nine and play a nine of Wash f ington boys as a sort of comic Inter hIde The suggestion was adopted and the New York nine consisted of tour or five Excelsior substitutes and a num ber of other young fellows among them Arthur Cummings The Washington nine was made up in the main of players belonging to the Junior Na tionals the crack amateur team of WashingtonCummings was a rising young pitcher but no one thought that there was anything remarkable about him and the Junior Nationals prepared to knock him out of the box But when the first batsman fanned out the Washingtonians began to look surprised sawiat all three balls and every one ot 7them seemed to jump aside just as it the plate One jumped out ward another inward and the third I seemed to rise Maybe Im beginning I to see things It puzzled Jewell the catcher tOoI not to speak of Al Mills the umpire Jewell caught oil ot the balls because It was then the custom for the catcher to stand far back and catch on the firstI bounce but It made him dizzy The second batsman of the Junior Nationals went to the bat and wal loped the air three times too Al Mills came up close to the plate to see what was wrong It looked to him as If Cummings were wildIJust keep your bead there he said to the third batsman and youll get your base on balls This third batsman had a steady hand and sure enough he got his base on balls Cummings pitched the ballI and It seemed to be coming straight for the plate when suddenly just as It was ten feet or so away It curved out and missed the plate by a toot Mlles called a ball The next ball came straight on but the batsman hoping to bit It and profit ing by his experience swung his bat far out But Instead of curving out like the last one It seemed to jump It crossed the plate on a level with the batsmans eyes That scared him and he just stood there without making a move until a succession of wild balls sent him to first base The fourth batsman struck out so easily that it was pathetic Zi Well sir Cummings began to get more control over the ball after that firstsinnlng and Mills had to admit that It was coming over the plate but i except by accident not a single Junior Rational batsman could touch it It lumped it sank it wabbled from side to side Mills rubbed his eyes and won dered how the thing was done Cum mlngs merely smiled In the fifth Inning one of the Nationals by dumb luck landed on the sphere and drove It into t county There were two men on bases at the time and this home run brought them home That gave the Nationals J three runs So far as I know theY r made no other runs in the whole game After It was all over the whole t town buzzed about Cummings queer pitching As for him he was as silent as the grave 1Howdo you make the ball curve V hundred persons Does It curve Cummings would lay innocentlike And then he would shut up and be tome a clam When be got back to New York ho was signed by the champion Athletics and became their star pitcher Other r pitchers watched him and got on to the trick but it was three years before anybody did it as well as he During I l 11championship BultImore Hun i The Funny Part Was there anything really humor DUS about your

that such packs of furies do not loot the bazaars of the town Tho explanation Is as simple as It Is Interesting The Bag dad shop fronts are absolutely open Tho goat and mutton carcasses are hung where every dog that runs can reach them But time out of mind the first glance of a dogs eye toward forbidden dainties has been visited with the swift descent on him of a cudgel or a hatchet On one of a serIes of marches paral lei with the Euphrates I chanced to meet a desert horde whose greyhounds are In high repute Buying a brace of saplings I took them on with me lodging them in the tent and doing everything that was possible to make them feel at home Surprising to relate they obstinately refused both food and water The remains of a venison pasty seemed nt once to attract and repel them A pan of water appealed to them even more strongly but they would not go up ItAfter a time a Persian muleteer ex plalned the mystery In n twinkling No sooner did he upset the water and toss the viands on the ground before them than the silky eared ones ran in like Trojans and made up in a few moments for a days tasting Accustomed to lap from the river from irrlgatlonal channels and from sheets of
