7tached to His Utterances t on This Question CRCs v Wnchlngton Jan 31Presldont Roosevelt sent a special message to Congress today that promises to bt historic It deals at the outset with f the principle of the liability of em ployers for accidents to employe and calls for the enactment df a law that will avoid the technicalities of the act recently declared unconstltu tlonal bjt the Supremo Court Since tho Court knocked out the liability b law enacted by the last Congress the President has Informed pcrsolt6 with whom he has dlcusscd the subject that he desires tho employers liability principle extended so as to take Ir the thousands of laborers employed In the dangerous work of constructing the Panama Canal The liability to damages for Injury or death In th event of the passage of a law of that kind would attach to the government of the United States which In the case of the Panama work is the employ ing corporation The message was written and ad vance proofs sent to the newspapers before the United States Supreme Court a day or two ago declared un cdnstitutional a Kentucky case the law prohibiting tho dismissal of an employ for belonging to a labor organization and the President In an amendment made today In the cop- Ies sent to Congress announces that he will send in another message on the labor question making recommen dations growing out of this particular x I decision This amendment to the mes sage Is as follows v It is my purpose as soon as may be to submit some further recommenda tions in reference to our laws regu lating labor conditions within the sphere of federal authority A very recent decision of the Supremo Court of the United States rendered since this message was written in the ease of Adair vs United Stares swrnlngly of far reaching Import and of very se rious possible conseouenceshas modi fled the previously entertained views on the powers of the Cnogress In the premises to such a degree as to make necessary careful consideration of the opinions therein filed before ills possible definitely to decide In mhat way to call the matter to your attention Todays special message In Its re ferences to labor legislation is regard ed as the Presidents challenge to the reactionary Influences throughout the country which have been taking fully as much Interest In the employers ability and contributory negligence mat ter as tho agents or lenders of the labor organizations When former Governor Black recently made his bitter attack on President Roosevelt in a public speech and announced his support of Governor Hughes for the Pres idential nomination some interesting charges followed from administration Black lIab111llyto the national administration was because of the admlnlsrtalons stand I on this Important qiftstlon wash- asserted that he was out for HUgheli1 because the New York Governor had refused to sign an employers liability bill such as Roosevelt had signed and because it was thought his atitude against such legislation bad been de terminedHeer may lie some of the poli tics that is likely to play a part in the consideration of this capital and labor question aside from the consideration I accorded to tho matter In Congress this winter It Is said reactionary In terests are bent on preventing leis lotlon at this sesslonholdlng that If It r can be staved off until after election they will then have the whip hand absolutely It is declared the reaction aries fear a law such as has been pro TJOsedSone ithat will stand the consti tutional testmore than they feared i rate regulation when that subject was 0tlrst broached and moro than they fear any other proposition involving 9tho demand of labor that Is likely to arise In a serious way r Before long It la probable that the things regarding the reactionaries will be pointed out to the leaders of labor i throughout the country together with somo other matters of much signifi cance There is a belief here that the reactionary influence has had some thing to do with the effort to arouse antagonism to the administration and the probable administration candidate for the Presidency If this charge be correct It Is plain to see that the obI1 jection sought Is to complicate situation so that a systematic scheme to nominate a raectlonnry candidate 4orone regarded assafe and sound JbitbeJJ1t r ta ingr lItai1abeUer J r Making Good There Is no

which it adopted will be submitted to the voters next fall and meeting with their approval will eventually result In the construction of hundreds of miles ol modern macadamized roads through = out the State Senator Joseph Dosworth of Bell county and G T Wyatt of Logan county are fathering bills Each has made an exhaustive study of the exist- Ing conditions In Kentucky which bear directly on the matter of road con struction Senator Bosworth has several times been a delegate to national road con ventions and has carefully digested hundreds of recommendations looking to the extension of the good roads movement in his State It Is a singular fact that while other States in the Union may gd ahead with work of this kind unhampered by law and Constitution many of them if then so elect being empowered to assist their counties in the construction and maintenance of roads Kentucky is bound hand and foot by its Constitu tion which absolutely prohibits the State from engaging In road construc

bills looking to a con stitutional amendment In casting about for methods and plans by which Kentucky might con struct annually severul hundred miles of good roads a glance at the Constitution was sufflclenntto discourage their efforts and they came to the conclusion that constitutional amend ments was the only way out of the woodsOne of the bills seeks to amend Section 177 of the Constitution which reads The credit of the Common wealth shall not be pledged or loan ed to any Individual company corpora tlon or association municipally or po litical subdivision of the State nor shall the Commonwealth become an owner or stockholder in nor make donation to any company association or corporation nor shall the Common wealth construct a railroad or other highway The other measure provides an a mendment to SectlonlBS of the Con stitution which in substance prohibits cities towns and counties from incurring indebtedness for any purpose to an amount exceeding tho follow- Ing named maximum percentages on tho value of their taxable property Cities of the first and second class 10 per cent third and fourth class i- per cent fifth and sixth 3 per cent counties 2 per cent By the addition of the words exI cept for road purposes the bridle Is taken entirely off these two ot the Constitution in the slCUonsI road construction If tho meats are adopted at the November election Senator Bosworth proposes- to introduce a bill In the Legislature two years hence which will provide fo the establishment of a State good roads fund bx an annual levy on all taxable property In the Slate The bill will

W Deckham asking him to withdraw as a candidate for United States Senator If he docs withdraw as it Is believed that ho will when ho aims that the Democrats are determined to choose some other man an oldfashioned caucus will be held and tho Democrats will then select some man Mr Beckhams name not to be allowed to be presented to the caucus on whom all can agree and who will then bo elected This is the plan which Is now being proposed to comesIhitch is that the Democrats have not been abl as yet to agree bn some man to be elected utter Mr Bcckhatn steps down It is said that several 1mOil have been suggested but objec tlons have been offered to nearly all of these and thus far none has been agreed upon This plan is to be presented to Mr Ilcckham by the men who Are now voting for him but who know that he cannot be elected and who have grown weary of seeing the days pass without an election Many of these not for Mr Beckham and are vo for him only because they think he is the nominee or because they feel bound by pledges given during the cam palgn before the election This has always been tho weakness of Mr Bcckhas position the men who went voting for him were not for him at heart It Is said that there is good prospect that Mr Beckham will with draw and that some other man cane selected and the senatorial dead lock broken before many days have passed BIGGEST CHECK IN HISTORY OF

cut the acreage if you want to It will be easier to control a small crop than a largo one but remember you must control what you sell if you would get a fair price All our success has been gained by holding our tobacco until we get our price Men will tell you supply and demand rule the markot We believe this and Equity says supply tho de mand and stop until the market needs more Then supply it as needed This is true supply and demand Let the farmer get down to a busi ness proposition You can do this only by standing by Equity Revive all the locals Get together Pay your dues Start Equity on a boom You will need it next fall I have no obejctlon to tho acreage plan but I dont believe for a minute that it has yet made any difference in the prices No reasonable man denies that It was pooling and controlling the supply that did this Make the crop large or small but always control It if you would win You can never do this If each mansells Independent of his neighbor You tried this In past years with short crops and largo crops yet the size of crops did not seem to make much difference in the price Think of tho present crop at the best prices since 1S71 yet it Is tho largest crop ever raised Gfi2429000 pounds nearly 700000000 Now stop and ask yourself what made the price The answed comes down the lino Equity pooling controlling the supply Now men dont say I am against the acreage plan I have stood by it for four long years but you cant win unless you fix your prices and sel together J W DUNN Whitesville Ky BEGS PERMISSION TO REMAIN IN JAIL Boy Who Killed Another Does Not Want

New Life Pills Guaranteed by all druggists 25c m Philosophy of Cowardice- It is safe to assume that no bravo man would be a coward if ilie could It is equally safe to assume that there lives no coward who would not be bravo If It were possible for him to ex change the one quality for the other Cowardice per so is not a voluntary condition Its acquirement is not sought Its possession is despised by those in whom it is inborn for it is is surely a part of the psychological equipment of some natures as courage- Is the equipment of other natures The ancient Greeks stoned their cowards to death The North American Indians tortured them with fire Time early Romans lashed them through the streets The women of Brittany jeered them and spat upon htm as they writhed and trembled- In the pillory But tho stoning the tortures the lashings and tho infllc ion of ft dignities never made a bravo man out of n coward As civilization advanced scorn CUdain and humlla ting penalties took time place of capl tal punishment and physical chastisement and this became a greater ag ony to the coward than tenth itself Tu be stripped of his uniform and drummed out of time army with his comrades as witnesses was a more loignant torture for the coward sole Bier that to sit on his own coffin and have his heart lorn with bullets because he was a coward Neither environment nor education can alter a mental condition which dot not exist from choice and whoso existence is hated by him in whom It exists The physical coward Is deserving of pity rather than condemnation but even while we pity we should debar him from any place In tho army the navy or the constabulary where bravery is tho essential quality of membership just as we would debar the armless man from participation in It boat race or the

the Amerclan manof war Chesapeake and the Balaklava Bugle two of the most valuable war relics of a collection of antiquities that belonged to the late C G Mid dlebrook have been purchased at auc tion sale by American buyers says a London dispatch The Chesapeake flag was captured in the fight with the British ship Shannon in 1813and there Vas good bidding for the faded and torn piece of bunting the authen ticity of which is vouched for in a written history of ownership since Midshipman Grundy of the Royal Na vy came Into possession of the trophy nearly a century ago The flag was sold for 4250 to a London art dealer who also purchas ed the bugle for 1500 It was upon this Instrument that tho order to the famous Light Brigade to charge at the battle of Balaklava was sound edThe lealer ndmitteTT that these high ly Interesting euros had been purchas ly Interesting curios bad been purchas America but more than this he would not say There was a rumor that he was acting for Cornelius Van derbilt but this was subsequently denied and London does not yet know into whose hands the flag and the bugle have fallen The auction of the Mlddlebrook curios has been going on for two days and has attracted much attention When the time came tput up the flag the auction room was so crowded that many persons were tin able to obtain admission ThIS man who finally secured tho flag started the bidding with an offer of 100 but he was soon challenged by other deal ers among whom was a representative of an American who said he wanted the flag for the Amerclau Navy Lea gue Tho price was soon run up to 1600 Here all other bidders drop ped out and the contest was carried Oil by two dealers both of whom were said to represent Americans Tlfere was a long pause when the price had reached 2400 but then on bids of 250 at a time it was rapidly forced up to 4250 at which figure tho hammer leU As soon as the sale was made there were loud calls in the auction room of Does It remain In England Thl being answered In the affirmative by someone who did not know that the English deafer was acting for an American there was at once an out burst of loud cheering This was quickly quieted however when ttys purchaser corrected the mistake It has been understood that the American Government had Intended to make a bid for the Chesapeake flag but It was later decided from Washington to leave the matter of the pur chase In the hands of patriotic socie tlc or private citizens The blddnlg for the Balaklava bugle was not so brisk and the price obtained Is less than half what Mr Ilddlebrook paid for this relic ten years ago Ir Natures Decoration During the past few months In Swit zerland and France there have been brought to light several caverns In i which petrlflcatlon of water had wrought marvelous

without one I eyed that umbrella as a small boy oyc nforbld len orchard The next morning threatened rain and I could not resist taking the umbrella tentatively from Its peg unrolling It and displaying Its comfortable tent like proportions I put It back on the peg with n sigh and nobly went out unprotected During tho stay In Bruges my eyes and thoughts return ed to the umbrella with strong fasci nation anti on the morning of lear lug the temptation was still more acute The angels of light and darkness struggled within Inc but tho good one triumphed and we went to the station without the umbrella We left our luggage In the hotel to bo brought to us at the station by the boots Tho Brussels train came In but our luggage was missing We took our scats and at the Inst moment the boots rush

Held by V Liquor Men THEY MAY DECICE ELECTION It Is Now Openly Hinted That Opponents of County Unit Dill Are Ready to Favor the Side That Favors Them Some Interesting Capitol Gossip Frankfort Ky Feb 4Another week has passed and tho senatorial raco seems no nearer a solution than It did three weeks ago The deadlock still holds firm and unless the temper nnce question can cut the Oordlau knot there lsno prospect of an elec tion at this session ofho legislature The temperance fight has already butted into the senatorial race how ever and may bo time one thing that will cause an election There nro sev era members of the legislature who are reputed to he more strongly Inter ested In preventing tho passage of the bill extending tho county unit law to every county In the state than In the election of a senator or In any other legislation If the Democrats or a nov AUGUSTUS WIUSON majority of them try to pass this bill then It Is asserted that these liquor members will voto for and elect the Republican nomlnco for senator It time Republicans vote anti work for the county unit bill then these liquor men will not vote for tho Republican nomi neo The liquor men seem to hold time balance of powor and want to use It to further their Interests They are op posed to Heckham because of his tem perance views lint they IhO not want to vote for Bradley unless the exigen des of the temperance hllla require such a course That Is tho situation now and It anyone can guess what will happen he can do more than any man In Frankfort C S Senator Hubble of Lincoln county has Introduced n bill In the senate which requires nil legal reserve life Insurance companies doing business In Kentucky to Invest 80 per cent of the reserve on all outstanding policies issued In Kentucky In Kentucky securities such as state county or city bonds mortgages on real estate and mortgages on tobacco that Is pooled by some responsible organization which is operated in the interest of tho tobacco growers The primary object of the bill Is of course to prevent the enormous reserve funds of tho big In surance companies from being lucid and Invested In New York alone Time Kentucky legislature has no control of these insurance companies It Is true bat it can pass a law to tho effect that no company can do business in Ken tucky unless It invests apart of the money it carps from Kentucky policy holders in Kentucky securities This same bill with the tobacco feature left out was Introduced In the legislature two years ago but the Influence of tho Insufapce companies smothered It It will be quite a feather la Senator Hub bles cap ItJie can put his bill through and thus help the tobacco raisers bring tho tobacco trust to terms S Judging from the number of bills introduced the members of this legisla ture are anxious to do something for both the living and dead noldltjrs sent Henakor has offered a bill providing for a pension bt 125 pw year to all disabled and Indigent Coated erate

forces and she should not lag be hind tho other states In paying fitting tribute to her bravo sons that fell on that famous battlegroundS Several bills have been Introduced this session to make eight hours a le gal days work for several different classes of laboring men but the legis lature Itself has much shorter hours than that As a matter of fact the legislature does not learn how to work till tho last three weeks of a session For the biggest part of the sixtyday term they just loaf along and take things easy They meet about 11 oclock in the morning go through with some unimportant routine work till noon then take a ballot for United States senator and adjourn for tho day It Is true that some committee meetings are held In the afternoon and at night but so far this year the senatorial race seems to have demor alized all attempts to get down to hard work It host been suggested that better results could be obtained If the legislators were paid a fixed salary for their lull term Instead of the five dollars a lay they now receive Sen ator Nat Cureton of Louisville has of fered a bill providing that all legislators shall receive 40 per month for their full twoyear term and the heat enant governor to receive 2500 per year It Is not believed that this bill will pass however and If ft should pass It would not apply to the present legislature an the salary of an oIHclnl cannot ho changed after he has entered upon his duties S S Out of all the bills Introduced look- Ing to the securing of a better system of public roads It Is believed that some ono good measure will be adopted The constitution does not permit state aid to roadbuilding but state aid seems to bo the only solution of time problem With this Idea in view Senator nos worth has Introduced a bill providing for a vote on the propo sition to so amend the constitution that the state may lend Its credit lo any county to help that county build good roads The plan Is to have a county vote to Issue bonds for a cer tain amount to build roads and then the state will endorse the bonds and thus time money can bo raised to carry on the work Other states have even gono farther than this In Now York the state contributes fiO per cent of the cost of nil roads California and Colo ratio pay al tho cost Massachusetts pays nil tho cost but requires till counties to refund onchjilf In sly years In Ohio the state pays 25 per cent the county riO per cent the town ships 15 lIt cent and the abutting property owners 10 por cent In Penn sylvania thp state pays 75 per cent A largo number of other stats help I the counties to a greater or less de gress Jo build the roads and unless some mwisuro Is adopted by the leglc Intnro to promote roadbuilding Ken tacky will soon drop behind her sister states and be known as the mudroad state- S S S Kentucky has neglected her fish and game laws for so long or has failed to enforce them that fish and game have rilmost become things of tho past Other states have rigid laws on this subject anti enforce them to time let tar but It has never been dune In this state In fact there Is an attempt at every session of the legislature to re peal the few restrictions as to fishing and hunting that aro now on the stat ute books Representative Hunter of Clark county has Introduced a bill pro viding for the appointment of a state game and fish commission that shall appoint a game warden Tho bill tur ther provides for a gun license for all hunters of 2 for pump or repeating guns and 1 for other guns It also provides fo a license of 1 for every fisherman who Is a resident of the state and 5 for all nonresidents and limits the amount of game and fish that may be taken In any ono day Representative W C McChord of Washington county has offered a bill that he thinks will tn a great extent solve the tobacco troubles In this state His hill provides first tlmt all persons companies corporations or government that aro engaged In man ufacturing or buying tobacco In this state must first procure a license to do no from tho state commissioner of agriculture second it provides that It shall bo unlawful for any person en gaged in growing tobacco to put on any growing plants any poisonous sub stance for the purpose of destroying worms or Insects or for any other pur pose third It makes it unlawful for any person having the possession of tobacco the tltlo of which is vested In another to sell or otherwise dispose of such tobacco without the consent of the person In whom the title Is vested The latter clause Is to prevent anyone win has pooled his tobacco from taking It out of the pool and sell lag It to the trust About the first bllj to pass tho sen ptA was tho Bosworth bill which au thorizes under certain conditions and restrictions the use of the public

NAMELESS MAR RIA fiE IN EUROPE Almost Amounts to Modern Sounding Husbandless Matrimony The English woman has at least one advantage over her American sister said a young woman who has just returned from a two years stay In London to a New York Evening Sun representative The English law does not require a wife to take her husbands surname She can please herselfThat point was settled several years ago when Mrs Fenwick Miller was elected on the London School Board She had never taken her husbands name merely altering Miss Into Mrs and a formal protest was entered against her election because It was claimed that she had not stood under her legal name This protest was referred to the law officers of tho crown and they decided In her favor Now there are a large number of society women in England most of them widows who have never taken the names of their husbands They refuse to give up the title and posi tion they already possess for tho sake of using their husbands name Of course the question of changing the name and thus losing their Identity 4n marriage Is even more important to tho professional woman whoso well known name is often of commercial value In America where tho women use one name for business purposes dreadful never to take the husbands dreadful never to takethe husbands name at nil yet it it much simpler and the almost invariable rule among j English women r
