Saunders erst while Democratic Campaign speaker to recover money bet on the election particulars of which appeared In these colums several weeks ago has been disposed of by special judge C M Barnett I The suit was filed soon after the election and while the amount claim ed was but 50 the extreme novelty of the case resulted in its attracting considerable attention The case was called for trial the second day of the regular January term of Quarterly Court Judge Taylor declined to try it and Col C M Barnett was agreed upon by attorneys representing the partiesThe matter was called for hearing by Judge Barnett a few days later at which time the defendant filed his affidavit and asked the court to com pel saunders to personally verify his petitionThe second paragraph of the af fidavit contains tho following startling allegation For further cause for a personal verification of the petition defendant avers that he is informed and charges true that the plaintiff B F Saunders has no interest directly or indirectly in tho subject matter of this litigation but that another who is unknown to this record is the real party in in terest and that Saunders is merely tho agent of said party This was a revelation to every one and a great deal of speculation has been engaged in as to who the unknown party referred to is On the affadavlt the court awarded a rule against Saunders to verify the petition in person and set the case forward to Monday February 17 when the case was called Monday the petition appeared tp have been sworn to by Saunders before J W Thompson justice of the peace of Green county Arkansas There was no attestion of an official under seal that Mr Thompson was authorized to administer the oath and a demurrer was sustained to the verification Mr fclosley who represents Mr Saunders refused to plead furth er and the petition was dismissed an appeal will probably be taken to Circuit court Better PayAssuredfor Enlisted Men of the Army Washington D C Feb

contrary the cam mltteo was agreed that it should be increased though by what percentage was not determined but the committee tearing a point of order felt that it would be unwise to include such a

MET Owensboro Men Deny Partic ipating in Conference S B Lee Goes to Frankfort Gives Interview as to How to Settle Tobacco Troubles The important meeting of Clrecn river tobacco interests alleged to have held at the Old Inn in Louisville Monday and of which lengthy n ports were printed In Louisville papers appears to have been a sort of Marjorie Day affair The participants in the mooting are said to leave been John Englelhardof the American Tobacco company A J Massie buyer for the same com parry George M Taylor secretary of tho Green River Equity Ware house company S T Hums a director of the same company and- S H Lee secretary and treasurer of the National Tobacco Growers as sociation Mr Taylor says that at the time the meeting is said to have been held ho was in Owensboro at Umdllng to

who has been closely connected with Mr Lee in the affairs of the association stated Tuesday night that he docs not belleyo that Mr Lee participated in a conference in Louisville Mr Lee was in Lou isville but was on his way to Frank fort where he now is While In Louisville Mr Lee Gave tho follow- Ing interview to the Louisville Post As secretary and treasurer of the National Tobacco Growers association I have given considerable study to the lawlessness and deal- Ings of the association tho American Tobacco company and other con cerns that buy tobacco I have been in several localities where lawless acts have been committed and I find that after having talked with a number of good citizens in those localities it is believed that where the association could dispose of their tobacco at the prices that aro ruling the day it has proven entirely satisfactory to tobacco growers and is the shortest way out of the difficulty The green River district includes the several counties in the vicinity of Owensboro and I want to say that in tho Green River district no lawless acts are anticipated There was at one time anticipated danger of lawlessness and In my opinion the trouble was averted by the Tobacco Growers association and growers not belonging to tho association de chUng that it was better to approach the American Tobacco company and other concerns and determine whether or not deals could be made sat- Isfactory to all The trouble has been due to tho fact that the farmer has believed that ho could not do business in a satisfactory way with tho American Tobacco company The whole trouble lies In tho fact that the farmer has placed his tobacco with the association and in many Instances the committees hove made no effort to sell I believe that the tobacco question could be solved if the farmers with the pooled crops would sell their tobaccoThere is no way that has proved more satisfactory than this method both to the buyer and the seller Tno Green River Tobacco

THIS SESSION People See Little Hope of Getting Anything Needed Beckham Holding up Everything With the Hope of Being Elected With less than twentyfive legislative days remaining of the preseno ses aloe of the eGneral Assembly folks who are Interested in the passage ot important legislation are becoming un easy and wondering if tho solons aro going to trwow up the sponge says a specter Frankfort dlspatcd All Indications point to an effort Ion the part of certain interests to not only block legislation affecting them but to sidetrack all measurers which proposes any changes in the present statutes It appears to be merely a question of adjournment as early and as often as possible- It is generally conceded that little business will be transacted by the House during the few remaining days of the session and so long as Beck ham wields his local option club the sessions arc apt to be brief and uninteresting With the able assistance of Par theInominee for Senator is playing the po lotlcal game of his life All of the insincerity which has been charged against him in local option matters hens been established and It now re mains only a question of how long the local option members of the Legisla ture are going to stand for his methods According to one of them who freelyexlcressedIIJlmse1thQpollcal trickery of Beckham has exceeded the of Beckham has exceeded the limit in patience of tree long suffering ones ones who have not oblged for the sake of party regularity to dally cast their votes for him in an effort to elect him Senator To his notion he explained the soon er tho Democrats of the Legislature settled on another Democrat for Sena tor tho sooner the Dmocrats of th State would become united and the party regenerated- I have been one of the last to believe In Beckhams insincerity he said but after he showed his hand so plainly I am obliged to confess that I was wrong He doesnt want the local option bill to pass the House and will sacrifice anything to become SenatorIt believed now that with Speaker Gooch as his ally Beckham will use every means to prevent action on the county unit bill by the Housq still cher- Ishing the forlorn hope that his plan will succeed in whipping the recalcltran Democrats into line He will also at tempt to prevent tho Senat Committee from reporting on the same bill acting under the same belief Tho Speaker is alert and keen and those who witnessed his rulings know that he will lose no opportunity to continue to rule in favor of the Beck ham interests JEAN AUDLEY RETURNS TO KENTUCKY With Poney and Seven Dogs Returns

Weed Is a Luxury and Grow ers Should be Paid Well For It On last Saturday night February 15th 1908 tho Rev B F Jenkins of Owensboro Ky delivered a very for cible and impressive speech on equity at West Point church Bro Jenkins In a very forcible yet plain manner plead for the continuation of tho or ganization Giving as his reason that tho organization should exist he said there was no question but what the price of tobacco had been advanced and that when tho tobacco farmer prospered everybody else prospered using as an illustration the high price of mules saying that when mules got so high everybody lead made money even to the old woman and children He dwelt at considerable length on tobacco as a luxury claiming that we have a perfect right to steadily ad vance the price In regard to wheat corn and other necessities he said was different and rather urged moderation along that line He then spoke of lows that would soon be enacted for tho benefit of the tobacco growers and gave it as his opinion that when the bone of contention was removed night riding would cease in Kentucky But he said the trust would make a wonderful and desperate effort to break down the organization this year saying that they were now paying moro for tobacco off the wagon at the auction house than they did for tbo association tobacco He next gave a thorough explanation of how the money kings manipulate the money market and thereby corner or manipulate any other market they saw fit to exploit In tak- Ing in consideration of course the ones that offered the greatest return for the amount Invested Told how Russell Sage once caused a panic among the New York banks by borrowing from one gold depositing paper as security and from the next paper and depositing gold as security Sago borrowed the money on 15 days time and as soon as ho had borrowed enough to cause a panic placed his stock on tho market bought it in for nothing with the balance of tine stock and as soon as ho had bought what stock ho wanted he cut teh money loose at the banks and Sage had the thing going his way Spoke about going to the State convention a half Everitt man was not there long however until his mind had undergone somo change and a little later a little more change and when Mr Everitt fully convlnc ed him that ho was a one man power man he became thoroughly convinced that Mr Everitt would not do and Is now a full pledged Barnett man and is for the American Society of EquityBro Jenkins is a man of Intrinsic Christian worth a man ot nobility of character and of unswerving fidel- Ity He commanded tho best of attention during his Equity address and made a strong appeal to the boys to pay up their dues and stay with the regular organization To somewhat show our appreciation of the good service he rendered us wo donated him a nice lot of genuine old fash- Ion home spun tobacco Long may ho live todo good religiously and oth erwise WATT TAYLOR Matanzas Ky Feb 18 1908y Erf BURLEY HERE

question I fear many things will The overlooked On point I wish to call attention to Neither let any one firm get enough to control the market aceep all the Independent men you can In the field The more men you have to sell to the toetter prices you will get Look back to 1903 when no one but the trust was In the field Dont let us get in this condition again Keep all our small manufac tures at work Sell them what they need whether It be one hogshead or one thousand Do business with the trust but to do this you must keep up competition by keeping all the independent men in the field Dont forget or overlook this fact I wish to correct one mistake mado at Satudays meeting This Is in regard to anarchy In Ohio county and in regard to what caused the most disputing in Ohio county I wish to say that there are as ash lawabiding nun In Ohio county in any county Our state president was from there and our national I president and sta lecturer are from lawInbldlng The only trouble was caused by the I socalled homo warehouse selling the 1007 crop while most of the true A S of E men were holding their crops and were fighting to pool as they had before considering this I was there an anarchist In Ohio county People told me that they would let their crop go rather than to violate the law Had the home people not sol1 the 1907 crop there would not liao been any complaint in Ohio tau ity gain I hear that the trust is glv Jg out Burley seed In such quanti tb s as they can get farmers to take i with the pronto that the tobacco i m from It will bo bought at the I L Jiest price Now men stop and Uik before you do this Think of yuiis brother fanner In the Burley district He has agreed to cut the crop out and are you to turn traitor i and help the trust to crush him by t raising the Uurlejt It needs This Is not Equity Dont do it Stick to the dark tobacco SuK oe the Burley I people were to turn around and raise dark tobacco You would then cry out that It would ruin our market 110 just and fair Dont hurt the Burley people but help them to win We need them I startedintobncco May I drop a thought here I Take it for what It Is worth It does I Tako It for what it is worth It takes time and money to adI advertise and to get the product of the factory before the people Now 1 believe that If this company will use Equity tobacco altogether and will got the right to put the A E of E label on its output It will find ready sales to all union labor people 1 am satisfied that the unions would use It By this moans It can bo put on tho market at once It costs more to put the

an end o the Caleb Powers farce by grant- Ing that muchabused mana pardon Powers has already passed eight years In jail has four times been tried for murder has been twice sentenced o life imprisonment and once sentenced to be hanged and has now been sent back to jail without ball to await a fifth trial This Is one of the great historic cases His conduct throughout has beets that of a man who would not compromise to escape the extreme penalty which line long been held out to hint as his probable fate His repeated appeals his testimony his speech to the Jury satisfy most impartial observers that ho is irinoceiit This has been the conclu sion of practically all the outsiders who havo gone into Kentucky ty make a study of the case But aside from that the attitude of the prosecution has from the start been that of men who did not dare to reply on tho Justice of their cause They secured heavy appropriations re sorted to partisan and prejudiced juries and repeatedly shifted the theory of their case discrediting in one trial tho witnesses on whom they relied In the other and all at times when they were In the enjoyment of an al most absolute arbitrary power These circumstances suggest that the pro secution was moyed by partisan vin dictiveness Its proceedings havo lack ed dignity and decency and in many details late borne the mark of vul gar and brutal oppression But for tho attitude of tho Court of Appeals tho stain upon Kentuckys name would be without relief That court alone stands out as having maintained its Judicial Independence New Electric

of the iioeel of uniting as a body to fight the grow ing trust evil has done more than RII one thing to bring about success it Is now claimed is now close at bane Senator Cancrill safel last night m discussing tho tobacco situation ihaij the organization of which he is tin head has sold during Ibo past wek 3000000 pounds of tho 1906 crop of tobacco at the price listed by the associa tion and that this prlco was twice whaT It was a year ago when the tobacco was pooled by the farmers He mId tU association had alto received an offer for 20000000 pounds at a price slightly under the listed price but that the offer had been rejected because the of ficers of the organization ftllIthey sufficiently controlled the situation to compel the American Tobacco Com pang and it sallies to pay the ibices asked for tobacco now has between 160000000 and 170 now hasbuween ICO000000 and 170 000000 pounds of the 180C and 1007 crops in the pool and that until all of the former crop had been sold not a pound of the last crop would bo die posed of and that with tho elimination of a crop of tobacco this year it would be an easy matter to dispose of ail of tho tobacco in the pool He said that the entire acreage in the burley tobacco district of Kentucky yi diana Oiiio and West Vlrgihia was about 140000 acres and that a little had been pledged more than 80000 acres by owners In favor of thenocrop plan this year and he believed by the expiration of 30 days fully thatI 000 acres would have been signed Senator Caul rill said furtJTer that owners of fully 25003 acres had pledg ed the association that they would not raise a crop of tobacco this year but had not signed a contract to the effect and would not but that under no circumstances would these men break even a yijrbal contract He said the only men who had so far held out rand refused to sign a contract not to raise tobacco this year were those who were not lif the pool and had disposed of their 1000 and 1007 crops at a big advantage duo to the activity of iho American Society of Equity and that beaus of that increased price they ti tri 1 favor of a crop this year He said however that simple justice to the men who are in the pool should in fluence this small minority to elima unto ttio crop this year In order Urn those men who have their last two crops in the pool could reap some of tho benefits Senator Cantril said tho question of whether or not a crop was to be grown this year would have to bo sat tied definitely within tho nextthlry days as by the end of that perlol it will bo time to begin operations if a crop is to be grown but he said jihat from assurances received by the Committee in charge attho work of Ignlng up contracts was practil conclusion that thelly a foregone rop of tobacco throughout the Bury district would bo eliminated this ear He said there were only TWO ounces In the district where any eal opposition to the elimination of th rop this year had developed one of vhlch was Henry county where n outing was held two weeks ago and here another meeting of the antis would be hold the coming week to discuss the question Senator Cantrill was present at the former meeting and debated with CUunty Judge IJ F Hill the latter taking tho other side ol the question and urging that the far i mere of Henry county raised a crop of tobacco this year Just what action will finally be token by the farmers of Henry county Senator Cantrill was unable to say but he predicted that by the time oi the meeting 4f the anUs next wool several hundred more acres would hav been pledged to the society and

but will be within tit next few days Time surveys were made and the plans and specifications drawn by the Oaborne Engineering company of Cleveland It Is estimated by tho engineers that the bridge can bo built for not exceeding 11000000 and that tho bridge and railroad line between Ow ensboro and Rockpurt will out cos over 1250000 Tills is made as n maximum estimate and It is pus sible that the cost may be soincwhat less Two routes have been surveyed and two sets of blue prints of tho bridge drawn One of these surveys provides for a bridge at Iceland a short distance below Uockport The other provides for a bridge III lu tlo Island just above btvensboro It is probable that tho latter will be chosen as the stockholders lire In dined to regard it as time nitnt ad vantageous location Within tho next tuft weeks tit work of securing right of way will bo commenced Present indications are that there will be little trouble In securing right of way through the necessary lands on tho Indiana side On the Kentucky side there tie some land owners who will pus ably object to the road running through their xlurmg but it iSj thought that these object ions can Overcome without great difficulty The fact of the bcrnr attitude of the farmers on the Indiana fide is one of the considerations that lots determined nifiny of the stockholders that the bridge had btst be built as near Owensboro its

miles west of that city Sunday mOrn- Ing A frightful catastrophe and loss I of life were only narrowly averted The train was approaching Mtl draugh near West Point and Just as the locomotive passed onto the trestle the forward trucks of the ten der were derailed with a Jolt that threw the passengers from their seas- In great alarm theyclungto seats and woodwork as the train continued to bump across he trestle with a sue cession of Jars and Jerks Just beyond the trestle the train was brought to a standstill and the cre spent nearly two hours in getting the engine trucks back upon the rails First the engine was uncoupled and t the slow process of lacking the big tender was begun while the passen gets stood by and watched the work Among them were Senator Wheeler Campbell of Paducah and Clem J Whlitmore of Mayfield and Simon A Dreifus of Louisville The trestle at Mulbraugh is over a series of gulches and is 190 feet high at one point When the passengers realized that they had bumped across this elevation with the tender wtuels derailed they recovered from their fright sufficiently to marvel how the rear car remained on the track and to return thanks for their narrow escape The engineer said that he felt th tender wheels leave the track and attempted to slow down in crossing the trestle but was unable to lesson the speed of the locomotive within such a short space He too was

ballooning has led to many curious investigations touching the atmosphere and its inhabitants IJy the use of anchored balloons with selfregistering instruments some of the experiments of deepsea sounding have been repeated aloft At Slrass bury sounding balloons have been sent to a height of nearly 26000 yards and 19000 to 20000 yards is not an uncommon height One of the astonishing things said to have resulted is the discovery at a height If 14000 yards of an Isothermal zone in which con trary to experience np to that height temperature does not diminish with recession from tho earth Ono of the most interesting studies is that of the flight of birds The observation of aeronauts appears com pletely to dispel the oldtime notion that some birds soared to stupendous heights Humboldt having credited tho condor with over 7000 yards and others believing that birds of passage flew at heights of 3000 to COOO yards and In exceptional cases 10000 to 12 000 yards Balloon voyaging however establishes tho fact that birds never rlso to anything like these distances above tho earth Prof J Poeschel of Frankfort records as although unusual the passage of a balloon in which he was through a flock of birds at night at nhcight of 2200 yards The birds dashed against the basket oftho balloon and generally acted as If they had lost their bearings Birds flights at the great elevations formerly assumed Is now regarded as physically impossible The rarefaction of the air too great to permit of flying wolhout terrible exhaustion as breathing would be especiallYI sides tho cold Is too height of 10000 yards for Instance the thermometer dropping to GO de grces below The observations of balloonlsts show that the vast majority of birds keep within 1000 yards of of the earth and the vast majority of these Indeed with In a couple of hundred yards even In long flights Crows however were frequently observed at a height of 1400 yards a lark was once encountered at 1900 yards and an eagle Is on record at 2000 yards Rulers Who Smoke Unlike King Edward who Is a great connolseur of cigars and smokes little else than the choicest Havannas the Kaiser although a lunvy smoker cares very little about which brand of cigar he smokes He byno meaue objects to even a cheap and common cheroot and rarely pays more than three pence for these The late King of Portugal had even worse tastet In the matter of cigars which wore usually not only black rank and strong but had a habit of burning on one side like tIle typical cabbage leaf The present King of Portugal to has a penchant for long and strong cigars while people who have btin maud to one of the long greiu clgirs which the Emperor of Austria likes su inurh have been glad to avoid a second one for they are far Irum being a mild Kinokc

keeps his cam palpi promises by Introducing bill- stfn all Imaginable subjects The titles to these bills are published In tho newspapers and usually that Is tho last ever heard of them for they dlo In the committee and the author re turns home and tells how he made a i desperate effort to have his Important measures passed but he could make no headway because the corporations fought them when as a matter of fact i so corporation probably over heard of his bills They have made a ree cord though and usually run for congress on Jt then retire to the cool ing shade of private Ufa This Is not always the case however for flvo of the Kentucky congressmen viz A D James Den Johnson W P Kimball Harvey Helm and John Langley have served in the legislature Congress v c vu u t StanleyIBennett aad D C Edwards had never j slUed In the legislatureS During the first two weeks of this session It looked like every member of the legislature wanted to have the- honor of Introducing a bill to repeal the dogtax law Two or three bills repeallitfirst bill passed would be one to take the tax off of dogs A change has taken place however and now it seems very doubtful If the tax Is repealed at all Nearly all those repeal bills were the result of campaign promises the candidates pledging themselves to Introduce a bill to repeal the dog tax as soon as tho legis lature met They have kept the prom ises but now the sheep men are mak- Ing themselves felt Several delegations of farmers from different coun ties have appeared before the commit tees having the bills in charge and while tho discussions have been warm and the antidog tax mon have Leen In sistent thero has been n decided change In sentiment The sheep misers say the law is Just now beginning appreclated st year by dogs but the owners have been paid full value for the sheep something that was never done before They urge that It the law is given a further trial of two years It will never be repealed as it will be thoroughly demonstrated In that time that tie law is an absolute necessity and works no hardship on anyone S So far only two bills have passed both houses and are ready for the ap proval of the governor these two be ing a bill giving the governor tho pow er to appoint a stenographer for his office and a bill providing for several messengers and stenographers for the senate and house A number of bills

tobacco It has passed the house and may come up In the sen ate this weok and be passed The Newman bill to prevent the sale of adulterated or misbranded field seeds has passed the senate and it carries

mansion The following bills have passed the house but not the senate Tho Crccellua tobacco bill the Lll lard pure food drug and liquor bill which Is the same as the bill passed by the sen- ateS Politics must be a very fascinating game for It seems as if It qnco gets a good hold on a young man ho never lets it alone As an example of this the two nominees for United States senator W O Bradley and J CW Beckham were both In their boyhood pare In the Kentuckyhouse of rep resentative They both became Im bued with polities while associating with the politicians In tli legislature and both have followed the gam till each la the recognised head of his par i I ty in Kentucky Bradley was a page In itho historical sessions of 186162 being appointed to 1ho position by SergenntatArms John L Smedley Twenty years later in 188182 Dec haul served as page being appointed by William E Ralloy of Woodfor county who was sergeantatarms that session A strong fight Is being made espe dally by the Shelby county dairymen against tho Simmons bills which seeks to eradicate tuberculosis from dairy cattle by the compulsory admin istration of the tuberculin test under state supervision and providing for an indemnity not exceeding 50 for each Infected cow that Is destroyed by order of the state authorities Dr H D Rodman president of the Kentucky Dairymens association and others who have urged tho passage of the bill say It Is In the Interest of public health and Is the only way to secure pure milk Those who oppose the bill say the tuberculin test is not at all infallible and not nearly so good as the bacteriological test and Intimate that the bill Is really In the Interest of the veterinary surgeons The bill Is tho outgrowth of the campaign In the cities for purer and better milk but It is doubtful about it being passed 55 The following new bills of Importance have been Introduced the past week Act providing for official stenograph ers for circuit courts at 1200 per year salaryAct to award the deposits In the hands of the state treasurer and sher ifs to the highest bidder Act to prevent the opening of the atres on Sunday Act to prohibit any officeholder from serving as commtttemen

expenses of warfare against the tobacco fly The constitution provides that not more than two proposed amendments to It can be voted on by the people at anyone election and that the legislature shall not authorize a vote on more than two amendments at any one ses sion The senate has already passed two bills authorizing votes on pro posed amendments and therefore can not authorize any more this session unless the house should refuse to con cur in those already passed This cuts oft any chance to vote on the amend ment which proposes to allow a vote of the whole state on prohibition un til next session One of the two bills passed by the senate proposing an amendment to the constitution Is of vital Importance as It provides for the classification of property for taxation JOHN H STUART Suggestions About Streets- We are not advised as to whose duty It Is to look after the condition of the walks and streets of this town but It is certainly some ones Certain It Is that every citizen should lend their best influence to better sanitary condtlonshnd to cleaner and more serviceable streets and sidewalks As suming that it is the duty of someone having authority to have It done to look afer these we will suggest that such one or ones take a view of the side walk from Mr Buugers shop on Clay street to the tobacco factory on the same thoroughfare There are sev eral places between these points where mud is from onehalf to an inch deep on top of the brick and one place at the corner of the tobacco factory lot where the mud is two Inches deep on the walk and school chlldrennuifaber ing forty or fifty necessarily have to take to the adjoining lot to evade this mudhole The new brick cross ings are but little if any better than the limestone rock which they replac ed They would be if the mud were occasionally removed from them Ther are several other things if done woult add to the cleanliness and attractive ness of the town and convenience of tho citizens Wo have one of the best towns In the State and our citizens are known far and wide for hospitality Then why not clean up things so that we will look good all the time and so tho school children as well as our folks can pass along the walks or cross the streets without encoun tering such conditions CITIZEN Effectually Squelched The clerk 10 a dry goods store Was waxing sarcastic at the boarding house

the pools of the A S of E and of the Home Warehouse Company tho tobac co still coming in for sale at auction at the auction house is bringing better prices than since the Civil War The record was made yesterday when sev en loads sold ns high as 1025 for leaf 1010 for lugs and 4 for trash The average of the days sale was9 25 and 3 Tho average price of the several million pounds sold to the American Tobacco Company to the Imperial Company and to the Gallaher limited did not average the planters more than 750 and 2 The tobacco situation here now is in an unusual condition in that tho Green River District Association of th A S of E resolved at the January meeting to plant no tobacco this year unless all of the 1905 crop and fiO per cent of the 1906 crop was sold by February 1 This was not done and they are therefore committed against tho planting of tobacco this year In the face of that resolution comes tho temptation of a promise of still high er prices next year than were given this year and also the resolution of the Home Warehouse people to re duco their crop strictly to the 10000 hills provided that 95 per cent of tho growers of tho county will agree to do the same Inthe meantime every farmer Is Just now as busy as he can be burning and showing plant beds and apparently getting ready for tho planting of the usual crop A few of the largest growers who have never joined and
