1 k LL c POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT ISSUES RULE ON DELINQUENT SUBSCRIBERS 1 With this issue of the Republican we desire to call special attention of our subscribers to a recent ruling of the United States Post office Department at Washington issued December 4th 1907 as or der number 907 This order has been issued as an amendment to the postal laws and regulations and was to have gone into effect January 1st 190S but a later circular letter which we publish herewith directed to postmaster Heavrfo fixes the time for which the order shall go into effect April let 1908 The order seeks to regulate the postage on newspapers and other periodicals which Have the privilege of secondclass mall matter While a great deal of the order has no direct reference to us and does not concern us there is a part of it which concerns us very materially It has been the custom for years with the country papers to allow their sub scribers long terms in which to their subscriptions and in many cases the favor has been abused and subscribers have bccinnu delinquent for years and until a bill often amounts to 8 or 10 will accumulate The publlshe does not know whether to discon tinue this subscriber or not for they often make payment and thus save a considerable loss to the paper The new ruling of the Post office Department which as we have said goes into effect April 1st denies the publication of any weekly newspaper the right to carry a subscriber who is in arrears as much as one year Hence we shall have to ask those knowing themselves to be indebted to us more than that length of time to make prompt payment or we shall be com pelled to cut them from ourlist or lose our right to mall our pa pers at the Hartford postofflco under the Second class rate Those of our subscribers who are behind more than one year will in a short time receive notice and amount of their account through the mall and we hope to retain all of them but if your paper should be dis continued on April 1st it will be your own fault and not ours For the Information of our subscribers we publish the following extract from the above mentioned order RENEWALS OF SUBSCRIPTIONS A reasonable time will be allowed publishers to secure renewals of subscriptions but unless subscriptions are expressly renewed after the term for which they are paid within the following periods dillies within three months trlweeklles within six months semiweeklies within nine months weeklies within one year semimonth lies within three months monthlies within four months bimonthlies within six months quarterlies within six months they shall not bo counted In time legitimate list of subscribers and copies mailed on account thereof shall not be accepted for mailing at the second class postage rate of 1 cent a pound but may bo mailed at time transient second class postage rate ot1 cent for each four ounces J or fraction thereof prepaid by stamp affixed The right of a pub lisher to extend credit for subscriptions to his publication is not denied or questioned but his compliance noncompliance with this regulation will bo taken into consideration in determining whether the publication is entitled to transmission at the second class pos tage rates Postmaster M L Heavrin has received the following circular from tie Third Assistant Postmaster General which speask for itself Post Office Department Third Assistant Postmaster General Divis ion of Classification Washington PostmasterYour attention is invited to the amendments to the Postal Laws and Regulations appearing as Order No 907 from which tho above quotation is taken of tho Postmaster Gener al in the December supplement to the Official Postal Guide With respect to the rules in amended section 43l5governlng expired subscriptions you are informed that notwithstanding January 1 1908 is the date the same becomes effective it is the desire and purpose of the Department to give to every publisher a reasonable opportunity to adjust his business to time now conditions Publish ers who show good faith and that they are making progress should in fairness have such opportunity The purpose of the new regulations is to correct real abuses and not put into the hands of postmas ters instruments with which to annoy and vex publishers whoso practices are normal Therefore you need not question expired subscriptions as defined by section 436 prior to April 1 1908 except In cases which in your opinion based upon evidence in your possession constitute flagrant abuses in that regard and should therefore be speedily eliminated The facts in such cases will be referred to the Third Assistant Post master General for further instructions You are not to understand that amended section 436 Is not to be uniformly applied Uniformity of application is the end sought but the Department does not wish to be flooded with minor complaints while endeavoring to deal with the greater abuses Publishers are expected to comply with amended section 43C within a reasonable time Respectfully r TIME TO STAND TO THE TROUGH J W Dunn Says That All Dif ferences Have Been Thresh red Out Another state union meeting lifts been held This was tho best In the brief

in the principles and workings of the A S of E as any farmer there Not only did they turn over to us the keys of the town the city hall with the offi ces including that of Mayors for com mlttee room

There being but 10 minutes until time for report of credential committee Mr Ever tt declining to use so limited time was voted the floor at one oclock to which he agreed Then alI ter appointment of the various committees and report of committee on resolutions time convention adjourn ed to meet at one oclock Promptly at one the people began to assem ble and continued until the hall was filled Mr Everitt being called for responded with quite a lengthy talk andI must confess a disappointing talk I with many others went there if not prejudiced In Mr Everltts cause at least a great admirer of the man for the up build of time farmer and that admiration stilt exists but his advoca cy of one man rule and his Inclina tion to place self above the best in terest of the organization was so prominent and persevering that even before the response of Mr Bourland our faith in him was greatly shaken ed But when the response was mado and the history of the National Con vention given with Mr Everltts con fession of the truthfulness of said history I with all of whom I talk ed wero of the opinion that for the best of all concerned and especially In the interest of time A S of E there was but one course to pursue and that was to indorse the present Na tional Administration with our ev ery act the prompt payment of our dues and a renewed determination that the American Society of Equity shall llveo Independent of the efforts of any individuals And this was the seemingly unanimous voice of the con vention The committees being all appointed and assigned to their rooms to pre pare their reports the convention ad journed to reassemble at the court room at 7 p m to hear the address of the Hon A O Stanley who had come from Washington D C to be a part of or participate in said con vention and in his address ho made us all proud that we were members of the A S of E Tho convention met promptly at 930 Friday morning and proceeded to tho regular order of business receiving and acting on reports of committees All of which you have read through tho papers and which will complete this report Will say that a more harmonious and brotherly gathering has never met in Kentucky and

Union of the American Society of Equityassembled In the city of Hen derson on January 9 1908 beg leavo to submit the following resolutions Whereas Time great body of agri culturalists who produce the neces saries of life have always been at the mercy of the purchasers of the prod uet of toll and Whereas Such purchasers inspired by greed had reduced the price of the product of the farm unltl the farmers were unable to receive for their products adequate prices and it became necessary that time farmers of America should organize and band themselves together In one common effort to better their condition and rev prodI Society of Equity was organized therefore be It Resolved first That WH the dele gates to the Kentucky Slate Union of the American Society of Equity In annual convention assembled endorse the principles as announced in jhe constitution and bylaws of the National Association of said Society lately enunciated at the National Con thoIthe action of the National Convention of the American Society of Equity at Indianapolis Ind held October 22 to 25 1907 and hereby unreservedly ofi Resolved third That we endorse the action of our State officials dur ing the past year and commend them for their very able and efficient work in advancing the cause of the Asso ciation during the year just ended Resolved fourth That we here de clare that the principles of the Ameri can Society of Equity demand the enforcement of law against all citizens of the Comonwealth of Kentucky and of the Nation whether the same be a trust or other aggregation of wealth or the humblest farmer en gaged in earning a living for his dependent family and that we con demn without reservation all violations of law whether It be by trust magnates or humble citizens com monly denomination night riders Be It further Resolved fifth That there Is a wide distinction and an insurmountable barrier between the lawful and law abiding band of American farmers known as the American Society of Equity who choose from their num ber peaceable lawloving temperate discreet sober and unarmed men who go by daylight to their friends and humbly plead with them to re frain from acts harmful to the petitioners and their famlllcsand those others who under the cover of dark x ness their Identity concealed by a mask with no light save the flaming 3 torch that go forth to destroy proper ty and Interfere with time rights of peaceable citizens tho first of these we declare to be emissaries of peace i while time latter are comon criminals whose acts are unjustly charged to the American Society of Equity or other lawful associations And we now declare that all clmrgeswhuther I made by the Chief Executive of tho State of Kentucky or the subsidized press that the American Society of Equity Is chargeable or responsibletfor any lawlessness In Kentucky is without foundation and unjust to the Association and all charges that its officers have in anyway deluded or deceived tho civil officers are like wise without foundation and we further declare that the Association has no worse enmy not even the trust than those who would In its name violate the laws of the land A Happy New Year 9 To

officials that the passage of tho bill would bring thousands upon thousands of applications for pensions from what they called the great unknown army of men who came out of the service sounds in body

the great unknown army for while Uncle Sam is willing to pay 12 a month to everyone who has reached the ago of seventy only 6000 old sol diers have applied to be put on the pension rollunder the new

United States peered Into the dis tant future at the annual dinner of the Navy League of the United States and told of a day when the white and yellow races will meet in a conflict that will shake the earth The distinguished jurist was speak ing In the Interest of a mighty Amer ican navy He said If I had the opportunity J would r4vote for an appropriation of 50000000 a year Ipr a period of ten years forut larger navy The great Importance ot- a navy Is shown in the Constitution which restricts the appropriations for the army but sets no limit for those for the navy There is no such thing as friend ship between nations as between men Nations make no sacrifices to preserve friendships and do not forbear to do certain things because It does not met with the approval of othernations Do you think England cares a cent for what we think of her navy Or Ger many cares a cent what we think of hersThe trend of the Immigration of the white people In the past hos been from East to West There has been none from the West Just across the water there is a country with an immense population whose comerce we are seeking We refer to the people of Asia as the yellow race There are 400000000 Chinese as strong physically Indmentally as we are There is 3ver there another nation whose people are progressive and am bilious We may some day see a skill ed army In Japan of 5000000 to 10 000000 They will say You claim Europe as your country This Is ours Get out I dont think they have any such idea now and wo have no hostility toward them But there will be a conflict between the yellow race and the white race that will shake the c earth When It copes I want to see this country with a navy on both oceans that will be strong enough When seen later Justice Harlan de clined to be quoted regarding his ideas on the race conflict and a large na vy but It is possible to give in sub St nco an outline of his views The unmatched resources of the United States in men and wealth make it not only possible but in the opin ion of Justice Harlan the duty of the United Stales to discharge its respon sibility not only to Its citizens but from a humanitarian standpoint its duty to the world The American people arel not for conquest and do not seek war the eminent jurist says They have all the territory they deglre and probab ly more than most of them wish Had the Philippines bene ofered to this country as a gift instead of an acci dent of war the people would over whelmingly have opposed their ac ceptance The responsibility hav ing been assumed the United States must Justice Harlan b e llevcs proceed to discharge its dut- ytk by affording the people of the archt pelago ample protection If he had his way Justice Harlan would not stop with the building of the greatest navy in the world but he would fortify every seaport under the American flag and render them impregnable War when It comes sud denly the Justice points out and without much warning It la very important and in

last October tendered his resignation to take effect at the regular meeting February 25 There were several things which conspired to cause him to take this step First he felt that he could not give the time the duties of the place required without neglecting those who have first claims upon him Second the fight which had been going on in the order since the Na tional Uulon gave him untol trouble and anxiety Ho had made every ef fort to settle the differences in accordance with resolutions passed by the recent Ohio county Union but had failed At the recent Board meet Ing he urged the calling of a new National Hulon gave him untold trouble against it Under these CIrcumstan- ces he felt It to be his duty to the society and to himself to give some one else an opportunity to harmonize these differences which he feels is so essential to its future success How ever Mr Barnett desires to say to his friends In the society that he does not expect to go out of harness by this step but will be found righting the same battles for the end of justice as before whenever and wherev er he can do the cause any good THE FIRE MARSHALSHIP The position of State Fire Marshal which had been tendered Editor C M Barnett by State Auditor James r was declined by him last Thursday A because of conditions existing in the r 4 A 4 x df iState i would have rendered the duties of the position continuous

has blasted the law and the assessors almost mado It Ineffective by falling tb list the dog for taxation For inttasnce in Ol1e county with a population of 20000 probably 2800 dogs would be listed and

WHAT IF THE SUN- ALWAYS SHONE Development of Sleep Appears To Have Been Artificial Not Natural If the sun always shone we should never go to bed sleep would not have been developed It is true nocturnal animals sleep and wake just as much as diurnal ones and a drowsy owl blinking and nodding in tho light of daytime is a familiar object But then all such animals are themselves descendents of creatures which were once for many ages diurnal The habit itself viewed abstractly is one which could never have arisen except from the regular alternation of light and darkness There is no particular reason why we or any other animals should rest on an average about eight or nine hours out of every twentytour save for the fact that eight hours is about the average time during which there is an absence of light the animal might get about with comfort If there are any animals In Mars we would naturally expect them to sleep and wake alternately for a period which would be entirely determined i by the duration of day and night in their own 1lanetIObserve too that this most fundamental distinction due to day and night is whollyxrelatlvo to tho sense of Iglht and can affect only those types of
