HARTFORD OHIO COUNTY KYM FRIDAY MARCH 271908 No 36 LABOR UNIONS i MAKE PROTEST t To Congress on Interpretation of Laws Urge Relief From Grievances Occasioned by Supreme Courts Recent Decision Un Thursday of last week a memori al was presented to congress of the United States by representatives of eightyseven national and internation al trade and labor organizations and farmers organizations assembled in national conference at Washington This Is the conference to which pre sident C M Barnett of the American Society of Equity was called on Mon day of last week of which we wer unable to procure satisfactory repor as to its purpose The scope of the memorial was set forth In the follow ins opening paragraph Wo the Officials representatives of I the national and International trade and labor unions and organizations o farmers In National Conference as sembled in the District of Columbia for the purpose of considering am taking action deemed necessary to mee the situation In which the working peo pie are placed by recent decisions of the courtsnow appear before congress to voice the earnest and emphatic pro test ol the workers of the country against the Indifference if not actual hostility which Congress has shown to ward the reasonable and righteous measures proposed by the workers for the safeguarding of the rights and In terests In the name of labor we now urge upon Congress the necessity for Immediate action for relief from the most grave and momentous situation which has ever confronted the working people of this country This crisis has been brought about by the application by the Supreme Court of the United States of the Sherman antitrust law to the workers both organized and in their individual capacity The workers feel that Congress Hsell must share our chagrin and sense of injustice when the courts exhibit an utter disregard for the real intent and purpose of laws enacted to safeguard and protect the workers In the exer cise of their normal activities There is something ominous in the ironic manner In which the courts guarantee workers The right to be maimed and killed without liability to the employer The right to be discharged for belonging to a union The right to work as many hours as employers please and under any bndltions which they may impose Labor is Justly indignant at the be stowal or guaranteeing of these worthless and academic rights by the I courts which In the same breath de 10 aiy and forbid the workers the practical And necessary protection of laws which I define and safeguard their rights and liberties and the exercise of them indl yldually aria association The protest submitted by Mr Oompers and his associates Joseph F Valentine 8th vice president of the American Federation of Labor W R Talrley of the

antitrust law las been made to apply to labor al though it was an accepted fact that Congress did not Intend the law to so apply and might even have specifically exempted labor but for the fear that the Supreme Court might cons strue each an affirmative provision to J Te unconstitutional The protest continuesWe enactment of laws which t shall restrict the Jurisdiction of courts s 3 of equity to

Cantrill Makes a Plea For Law and OrtlcrI J Campbell Cantrill president of the Kentucky Union of the Society oft Equltyhns Issued an address to th members of the society appealing to prer serve cm full follows To tho members of the American I Society of Equity hi Kentucky Clreet1 lug Tho deplorable condition of af fairs existing In our State today puts a great responsibility upon1 our shoulders A feeling of unrest and uneasl ness pervades the whole State and 1 andlI As president of this great of Equity I know that this societyI is in no way responsible for this ter rible condition and with all lawloving citizens condemn those who have brought this disgrace upon the fair namo of our State However each member of our society should thor oughtly uuderstanrd that in the mind- of ninny people in Kentucky and in the Nation we arc considered responsible arserconditions as they arc I call spot- each local union of the American So clew of Equity In Kentucky to do all In its power to preserve the peat therort ganized I ask that each member- In his word and action so conduct him self that he will compel the respect of all classes of people and reflect upon our society tOur society has done more to in crease the material wealth and pros perity of our people than any organi zation that ever existed in the history of the State The organization of the Kentucky farmers and the teach ing of cooperation In selling our pro ducts have upon the one commodity of tobacco alone added eighteen mil11 01 dollars annually to the wealth of Ken tuckyIn the four great tobacco districts of Kentucky our annual production Is about 300000000 pounds Since the organization of out society we have ad vanced by our methods of selllngthe price on tobacco 6 cents a pound To disrupt our organization would be a public calamity and would throw the tobacco growers of the State back In to the old state of servitude and slavery to the trust Law and order must and will pre vail in this State and in the Nation Any organization to succeed must have the stamp of public confidence and es teem Any society which is held reIsponsible before the bar of public opln ion for the overthrow of law and order must finally be a failure The great duty now resting upon the Society of Equity In Kentucky and the different tobacco organizations which are branches of the Society of Equity is to try to stamp out lawlessness in 1tborlUmthe guilty and maintain the mamb guilty and maintain the peace of theI Commonwealth Let each memb y of our society thoroughly know that the loss of public opinion means the failure of our organization and upon theIother side that the holding of public opinion means our success Success is imperative but it must come with clean hands so as to be creditable and enjoyable to all who participate in it Those living outside of the tobacco district do not appreciate the great struggles and sacrifices that have been made by the farmers who have pooled their tobacco They do not know and cannot tully understand without being on the ground what burdens our people have to carry and what they have to suffer for the sake of a principle and for their loyalty to our I causeA great majority of the tobacco 9 growers of Kentucky belong to our associations The minority who do not belong to these associations have been feeding the trust and receiving very high price for their tobacco which our people by their suffering and sacrifice Lave secured for them And while I call upon puV own peo ly pie to stan4 true to the law of the lead I Colt upon those farmers outside c I of our association to stand true to higher lawa moral obligation due o from another and from brother to br ther in this great cause of human t- It j those farmers outside of the po will bury greed and avarice and do trouf hearts with our people peace happine- and prosperity will cover the Stat and make us a united people The last Legislature passed several bills which will bo of great help to our tobacco organizations notably the bil imposing a fine of 250 upon one sell or buying pooled tobacco The buy ling of pooled tobacco has been the chie WiLI lfIethe sat ficient to stop the buying of

STATE The Fairbanks Men Issue an RankuArd Set Forth the Advantages to IIBe gaited by the Nomination of the Indianian As a result of the conference o I Fairbanks leaders In Louisville Tues day an address to the Republicans o Kentucky was Issued appealing tc- i them to stand by the Vice President for the presidential nomination address to the voters prepare Irhe representatives from each cons district was adopted as lows fOI1 To the Republicans of Kentucky Ja conference of Republicans of the olStatO of Kentucky this day held in Louisville Ky In the Interest of Vice President Charles W Fairbanks this address to the Republicans of Ken directseto be signed by the undersigned com mittcC and published The great majority of the Republi can voters of Kentucky have no selfish interest In the outcome of the strug gle for the Presidential nomination but do must earnestly desire the neat nation of a candidate who can eel tainly be elected They also anxious ly desire the nomination of a candidate who can carry Kentucky Conceding the distinguished ability and services of Mr Taft we believe that it might prove unwise to nomi nate him for the reason that the lager vote and the negro vote are hos tile to him and because his campaign is being directed and controlled by Federal office holders and It nomina ted his nomination will be chiefly due to their activity and efforts which fact will in our judgment greatly weak en him as a candidate before the peopleIf Republican party Is to win In the nation this year It must have for Its Presidential candidate one who 1will appeal to and command every clement of party strength The loss to our ticket of a substantial portion of time Republican labor vote or of the negro vote or of a large stayat home or indifferent Republican vote would make almost certain the elec tion of a Democratic President The loss to us of all these elements would make certain Democratic success We believe that Vice President Fair banks Indianas favorite son and our friend and neighbor would combine these and all elements of party streng these and all elements of party strength and that if nominated he will be triumphantly elected We also be lieve that his nomination will insure Kentuckys electoral vote for the Republican ticket We believe that the exalted character the distinguished and patriotic services of the Vice President his unswerving and effective devotion to thereat principles and policies of our party throughout his career and especially during the McKinley and Roosevelt administrations his freedom from political entanglements or ments of political entanglements or elements of political weakness his personollty and life history all con personality and life history all con didate of our party in thegreatt sr dldate of our party in the great struggle that is approaching The Republicans of Kentucky are not Ingrates They know that the Republicans of no State in tho Union stood by them as have the Republicans of Indiana This has always true Never have the Republi cans of Kentucky asked a favor of the Republicans of Indiana that was not accorded Their kindness to us has been so uniform so varied and of such long standing that we know it be of the noblest most unselfish character Today we are the ever lasting debtros of Indiana Our indebtedness we can never fully dls charge Let us now In this hour of opportunity repay in some small meas ure that Indebtedness by instructing tour delegates to vote for Indianas ofKentuckyLet us give him our loyal unstinted support and we shall not stand alone Republicans throughout the length and breath of tho country are accept- Ing him as the solution of this struggle His nomination is the logic of the situation As Kentucky goes the nation may gr We appeal to the Republicans of Kentucky to stand by Indiana Go to the county convention on April 23 and vote for delegates pledged for Pair banksAlso vote for commltteemeiji who will servo tho party unselfishly Ask those Federal officeholders who may wish you to make them chairman of your committees to be content with what they have and to allow the boys in the trenches to have some voice In the

been issued and the sUppera of liquor noti tied The order was first issued from the headquarters of the Southern Express Company which touches all the principal points in the South but the oth exti days The official order reads Liquor In Jugs Refuse unless packed in wood or in corrugated boxes not more than one jug must bo packed in a corrugated box This order was Issued It Is said for tho purpose of the appearance of things Under the law the express companies are compelled to accept shipments of liquor consigned to pro hibition communities as such ship ments If two states are Involved are interstate commerce therefore not un der the control of the police powers of regulations of such local communities The rapid advance of prohibition has proved a gold mine to the express companies for since the saloon and liquor house has been abandoned those desiring their ticker secure a plentiful supply through shlprqentsvia the express companies Since Georgia hat gone dry nearly all of the wholesale liquor distributing houses in that state have moved tot weither Chattanooga Tenn on the Im mediate north or to Jacksonville Fla on the south Most of them went to Chattanooga where last re ports showed 60 have been estab lished Evrey one of those houses is shipping tremendous amounts of liquor into Georgia and the great bulk expressThe companies have found that much of this liquor is shipped in naked jugs and In many of the small er country towns following the arrival of the train the stations more re semble a jug house than a railroad elation But a far worse feature is the fact that most of this jug whisky goes to the negroes and it has come to be a common sight to see a parade of negroes each with a broad grin and a jug of whisky leaving the railroad station This has caused much unfavorable comment to be made against the express companies and it Is to avoid this that the order was Issued The order makes no pre tense that the shipment must be dis guised by a false marking and is not operative that way but is designed to avoid the suggestion that Is ever pres ent with the naked jug tho officials sayThis order becomes effective on April 1 Where was some disposition oh the part of the shippers to con strue It to be a ruse of the express company to add to the weight of the package and some complaints were made on that score The reason for the issuance is to avoid the brazen appearance of law breaking that a jug would personify in a prohibition coma munityMost of this jug trade is tor tho ne groes and it must be remembered that in the South a large element in tho passage of probbiltion Is to separate I the negro from whisky When the negro Is seen carrying a jug away from a railroad station or when the station platforn is adorned by a num ber of jugs It is not a slight calculated to bring favorable comment or feeling on the part of tho good citizen toward our company pS0 Cures Blood Skin Diseases Cancer Greatest Blood Purifier Free If your blood is Impure

evidently doesnt set well with tho Hartford Herald A liver tonic however might relieve it Will the Hartford Herald tell Mr Thomas and its readers why it charg d Judge Owens supporters for space In 1903 or will it again sidestep The Hartfford Herald frankly ad tilts that The Republican is The pa per of Hartford Thanks rankle and Heble you are more generous than usual The penitentiaries are to remain In politics an asset of the old Beck ham machine While the chalrtabli Institutions are made non partlsana they would soon pass under Republlca control anyway Even Taft can defeat your only candidate Mr Herald editors W J Bryan The only fear we had was that your party might have a Held Interval and get divorced from the millstone The editorial columns of the Hart ford Herald last week were filled with quotations from this paper which was a great Improvement to the dull com mon place tone usual to that department of the Herald and was no doubt greatly appreciated by Its readers The Hartford Herald In one breath declares that this paper completely squelched John Henry Thomas and in the next says it wonders if he wasnt making it a little warm for us However the Herald dont mind a little inconsistency like that It has served its party bosses unflinching ly until It has no mind of Its own We wonder if Mr Thomas did not make It a little warm for tho Hr ald It completely overlooked the meat of his article In the last Issue of this paper his reference to the treatment accorded the supporters of Judge Owen by the Herald In 1903 Of course no Republican In Ohio county will pay any attention to the false charge made by the Hartford Herald that we are attempting dic tatorship In the matter of choice for President For more than twen ty years this paper has defended Re publicans of Ohio county from attacks from this same sheet and nothing could please It more than to see us discredited However we claim to be in better position to know the weak nesses of some of our candidates than the great majority of Ohio county Republicans and would be remiss In our duty If wo neglected to warn them What will Ohio county Democrats think of the following dig by their organ the Hartford Herald at poor old Senator McCreary whom the neck ham machine butted off the bridge There is this difference between Ollie James and Senator McCreary the latter suffered himself to be re peatedly voted for in the race for the USSenatorshlp at Frankfort when he must have known that it was merely a play to the galleries and the for mer put a stop to this sort of thing on his own behalf and quickly sent word that he wanted the regularly nominated candidateMr Beckhara elected Quite a distinction and a dif ference Senator McCreary who made speeches for Hager and Beck ham after his shameful treatment was at Washington attending to his official duties The Herald however thinks he should have gone down to Frankfort and lashed those who voted for him into line This Is only an evidence of the abject sevitudo to party machine no matter how cor rupt to which years of cringing have brought the Herald The Hartford Republican has no personal Interests at stake In the Republican choice for a Presidential can didate Neither of its editors expect to apply for Federal appointment Our only purposes in expressing a prefer ence Is as to availability especially for Kentucky and to show apprecia tion to a neighbor State which has done more for Kentucky Republicans than all other States combined Other papers in tho State are doing the same in the interest of Mr Taft no tably

Some time ago It published an editorial based on an interview I which never took place severely cen suring Mr Barnett It refused to make a correction when politely requested to do so in a letter to Mr Newman its editor Last Monday night the paper sent a reporter to the hotel In Louisville at which ho was stopping who said he had been sent to get a statement from Mr Barnett Jhej re porter was treated with respect and his quesMons answered Tuesday appeared an Interview In which Mr Bar uett was made to say things he nev er thought of saying and those he did say In a number of Instances were left out Just to show how accurate the Herald can be he was reported as being from Oxford and was ifiade to say that there are only 300 mem bers of the Society of Equity In Ohio county when In fact ho said nothing about how many members are In Ohio county Wednesday It treats Mr Bar nett to another editorial castigation for talking Mr Barnett sought no talk with the Herald nor any other paper in Louisville Had he refused I to talk the Herald would no doubt have said he was acting suspiciously I und that he was contemplating a raid In Its attempt to convict the Society if Equity of connection with night riders it quotes from a Cincinnati iress dispatch which confirmed a sale ot all the burley tobacco the folloW- Ing A prominent member of the socle y In confirming the agrement today said It Is all settled The cruel war is over and we have won There Ill- be no more night riding or violence but there will be no 1908 crop of to jaco In the same Issue In which this ed itorial is printed the Herald prints a denial of the whole story of the sale 3f course the fact that the name of tiro prominent member of the y Is left out makes no material dif1 ertnce to ihe Herald It can convict I people as well without names as atlthewill give the Herald 50 for the name jf a prominent member of the society wino made the above statement This I paper has been a very good friend to the Louisville Herald under Its pres cut management It has even used our editorials as advertisements for the Herald The fact that It would eek Mr Barnett for an Interview and then criticise him for talking Is calculated to crate the suspicion that It Is not actuated by the best of mo tives to say the least of It infants Body Sent Through Mail Denver Col March 23 Postmaster C Olerachof PortalesN M has reported to E L

Not Thrown Away at 4This Time To the Tobacco Growers of Ken tuckyYour State is In the throes of a revolution that threatens wholesale destruction of property and life and irreparable Injury to the whole in terests of our people The police pow er of the commonwealth stands pow lessly helpless before the accumula ting fury of the mob Thb military at best can but warm by the dying embers of the product of the wasteful torch or guard with solemn reverence the passing funeral cortege and the local authorities are parallzed with fear or inactive from reluctant sympathy Such conditions cannot long endure Either the friends or the enemies of the tobacco growers must determine It By which of these agencies will you have it done But first a little inquiry into the cause of these disturbances The tobacco growers had exhausted their lands robbed their children of education and their laml lies of the meanest comforts of life to pour floods of wealth into the tills of the tobacco trust Awakened at last through the education of organi zation to the enopmity of the crime of which they had been the unhappy victims human passion broke through their coarser members into frenzied violence Without in any way con doning lawlessness I hope it Is not a crime to see in this but another example of mien working out their destiny by that law that knows no appeal Speaking for no organization for no man but for myself I favor relief to the tobacco growers from their soulless and conscienceless rob bers by the least violent means possible to attain it But the attention of the world has now been called with thundering emphasis to the grow ers oppression and how firmly tho sympathy of the public has been won Is more than proven by the immunity from punishment by the knights of time gun the hoe and the torch But enough popular sympathy Is strain ed totho breaking point Another day of these violent excess es that are discarding even the de cency of the mob and public sympa thy will bo turned to public wrath mid all is lost The jails and peni tent dcs will be filled with new and old offenders and every tobacco grow er In the state must share In thepopu lar odium Public sympathy without which no labor union ever won a fight once thoroughly outraged will be slow to subject itself tothe second insult The night riders have played a violent lawless but maybe a necessary part in the royal battle between the grow ers and the trust but the final Issue approaches and if the day is saved to the growers it must be saved at once and saved by those growers who have taken no part but who have talerat ed tho outrages and you alone can restore peace to the state They have operated by your tolerance and without criticising such tolerance I say the time has come to call off your dogs of war What the governor cannot do what Washington will not do you can do in a day Perhaps your enemies will see in my position a public indictment of you If so I indict myself along with you and I am proud of the indictment and yetI am only stating what everyone knows to be true and few will admit S I repeat the fight is approaching is sue Popular wrath or your own conservative conduct must determine the result Will you set about a metho dical practical solution and win the last ing goodwill of the state and nation or will you allow a few of your turbulent fellows to bring your cause to ruin and your avocation to disgrace Let every tobacco grower who has not Indulged In these disorders public ly announce tomorrow that order must be restored and that he must offer his personal assistance to tho authori ties to suppress It and the stillness of tomorrow night will not be brok en by the stealthily tread of the ter rorstflklng night bands J H THOMAS Notice To all ovals of A S

engaged In a close and serious evening conference In tho president room The time ran along to the hour of 9 Suddenly those busy in the outer room taw President McKinley rise and leave the apartment saying Walt a tow mo menu Mark He was gone about twenty minutes In the meantime Sen ator Hanna walked restle ely between the two rooms speaking a word or two to the secretaries and showing plainly that he shared with the president a feeling of deep anxiety as to the out come of the military proceedings He remarked on the fact of great shortage of supplies and from hla words and bearing revealed to the assembled few In that outer room that the president and his closest advisers were lying awake nights and working to make up for the deficiencies of the military situ ationWhen the president returned he and Senator Hanna resumed their anxious consultation Then the presidents secretary remarked to one who was near himi suppose you wonder why Presi dent McKinley got up so suddenly and left without a word to any one Too saw how anxious be was about the military situation Even that would not cause him to break away from what has come to be the custom of bls early evening About the same time every night when he hears a signal from the other side be knows that Mrs McKinley Is ready to retire and wishes to see him No matter bow busy he may be nor bow deeply engaged in any subject be invariably drops everything on the in stant and goes to their own apart ments There he sits by the bedside and reads a chapter in the Bible to Mrs McKinley Then be waits a few moments until she is

Speed Developed by the Greyhound Representations of the greyhound ape pear upon sculptures over 3000 years old There is no doubt that it is one of the very oldest fixed types of del and the most universal in its distribu tion India Arabia Persia are among the countries that for ages past bad the greyhound Lately there was ex hibited in England a greyhound from Afghanistan shaggy form suited to that mountain land Of course these dogs are not all exactly greyhounds in the western sense but they are users tially the same In type they are gaze hounds long legged light built dora bred to run their game by sight and not by scent and to overtake It not by wearing It down but by sheer speed and skill of running How this type was evolved affords much interesting speculation A greyhound Is probably the fastest creature that moves upon the earth says a breeder of those animals It Is on record that a greyhound beat the famous race horse Flying ChlTders An absolute trial between horse and grey bound is difficult to bring off because while the horse can be ridden at top speed it Is impossible to insure that the greyhound will run all he can But a dog that can start say fifty yards behind a bare and overtake It within another fifty and this Is about What a greyhound does must surely be faster than anything else that lives or has bis parallel only among the birdsThe same writer says of greyhound coursing One used to hear that It was a pothouse not a gentlemans sport But I have heard men who fol low both declare that they prefer coursing to racing and I can quite un derstand it In coursing there Is the absolute certainty that all Is above suspicion of anything shady Every time a dog Is run be Is honestly run to win or divide the stakes You can not pull a greyhound Chicago

Man Knew When the Mement ef- UncenseUusness Cetne There ta a remarkable fact connected with sleep which must not be over beingffeelingrof awe Go into a room where a perI- OD I Is sleeping and It la difficult to resist the sense that one Is In the pres ence of the central mystery of exist enCl People who remember how con stantly they see old Jones asleep la the club library will smile at this but look quietly and alone even at old Jones and the sense of mystery will soon develop It is no good to say that sleep is only moving because It looks like death The person who Is breathing so loudly as to take away all thought of death causes the sense of awe quite as easily as the silent sleeper who hardly seems to breathe i We see death seldom but were it more familiar we doubt if a corpse would Inspire so much awe as the un conscious and sleeping figure a small ing irresponsible doll flesh and blood but a doll to whom In a second my be called a proud active controlling consciousness which will ride his bodl ly and his mental horse with a band of Iron which will force that body to endure toll and misery and will make that mind now wandering In paths of fantastic folly grapple with some great problem or throw all its force into the ruling the saving or the destruction of mankind The corpse is only so much bone muscle and tissue the sleeping body Is the house which a quick and eager master has only left for an hour or so Let any one who thinks sleep Is not a mystery try to observe in himself the process by which sleep comes and to notice how and when and under what conditions he loses consciousness He will of course utterly tall to put his finger on the moment of sleep com ing but in striving to get as close as be can to the phenomena of sleep he will realize how great is the mystery which he is trying to fathom i A JAPANESE DINNER Plenty of Variety but Too Much Salt For American Palate- I I am afraid you wont like it said the young Japanese baron You insisted though on a

each guest Next came ushto a salty soup wltb which the national wine called sake was served In flat saucers The third course was a little raw fish very salty and steeped In a sour and appetizing sauce The guests con trary to their expectation found the raw flab no more difficult to eat than raw oysters With this course went a salad of white chrysanthemums The elaborate fourth course consisted of boiled chestnuts and a paste of sharks fins quail roasted and hashed with preserved cherries and crawtlHb with eggs These viands were all ar ranged decoratively on one large dish The fifth course also on one dish was boiled bamboo shoots with soy salted mushrooms and a cold boiled salmon and cold boiled perch with pickled shoots of the ginger plant Next came a soup of tea weed bit ter salty decidedly good next an as sortment of nuts boiled in soy next salt relishes next delicious boiled rice the grains as large as cherries and to conclude tea again The young girls as they rose from their low cushions and limped about in the effort to get the stiffness out of their legs said that the Japanese din ner bad been very good really much better than they had counted on but perhaps a little too salty for occidental taste Exchange A Shower Wedding And you say when the heiress became the wife of the foreign noble man It was a shower wedding I should say so The bride wore a shower bouquet

Views on Failure of Legis lature to Enact Certain of His Fa vorite Measure How the Kibosh Wee Put on the County Bill Frankfort Ky March 10And now the county bill Is dead unless an extra session fcf called tcTpaW It The bill passed the bouse and would have pass ed the senate had It ever reached a vote but a parliamentary ruse was adopted to prevent It ever reaching a voto The few whisky Democrats in the senate hold the balance of pow or and they were willing to do any thing to anybody or for anybody to defeat the county unit bill The other fl Democrats were told that If they did not help kill the bill the whisky Democrats would unite with the Republl cans and pass the Republican redla trlctlng bills the bills to oust all the Democrats from the offices at the pris one and asylums and the bill authorizing grand juries of any county to In vestigate penal offenses In any othor county In tho state This put the Democrats up against a tough proposition for most of them wanted to vote for the unit bill They had but one alternative however to lot the Republicans have all the offices and the next legislature or put the unit bill on the shelf They put tho unit bill on the shelf Speaking of the county unit bill there seems to be much apprehension as to the real meaning of the bill The last leglsla tutre passed a county unit bill that applied to every county In the state except those containing cities of the first second third and fourth classes these cities being given the right to vote on the local option question sep irately from the county In which they ate situated What Is called the ooun tf unit bill this session Is a bill to ex tend the provisions of the law passed two years ago so that no city shall have the right to vote on the liquor question separately from the county The cities claim that It Is unjust to allow a county to vote away a big slice of their Income and thereby force them to Increase their tax rate and that It Is taxation without representa tion The county people claim that the saloons in the cities affect the morals of the county and the country people ought to have the right to vote to close up the saloons This is the bone of contention There Is strong talk of an extra session being called by Governor Will son for the purpose of having the county unit bill the redistricting bills and several other bill enacted and some of the governors close friends say he will call It The governor him self remains silent but the frequency with which he has urged the pussa of these bills looks very much like ho Is In the frame of mind to order the extra session- S e e It was believed that no further schoolbook legislation would be necessary I In Kentucky for many years but the senate has just passed a bill on the subject and the funny part about it is that no one seems to know just exactly what will be accomplished by It though It Is claimed that the only object Is to give cities and towns more latitude than they now have In the adoption of schoolbooks The bill provides that there shall be no maxi mum price fixed for books as under the existing law but that the price charged by the book companies for the books shall be no greater than that Charged for books of the same quality sold In other states An amendment offered by Senator Newman was maximumJbook but the prices on a series of books shall not be higher than the fol lowing pelling books 16 cents readers 190 arithmetics 1 Ian guage lessons 40 cents writing books 32 cents composition 60 cents geog raphy 145 physiology 85 cents United States history 120 history of Kentucky 60 cents civil government 40 cents grammars 45 cents It Is said here that Ginn Co of Chicago are pushing the bill and thatI the American Book company a fight ing It so the bill must be In the In terest of a book company rather than In the Interest of the schools It do Teloped In the argument in the senate that someone interested In the passage of the bill had early In the session forged a letter purporting to be signed byformer state Superintendent Fuqua arid mailed a copy to every member jof the legislature The spurious letter Stated that legislation along the lines ipoyided for in the above bill ought to betterIZifOJ Prof Fuqua who is now In Tex letIwas a base forgery Strenuous efforts are deto push the bill through the house but it will take clever work to pans It j I e e tvI for1akabwH U the Wllhelml antlpoblroom t wife pHage Theblll + wN JnatelyvfutiBBed to effectually puta kt W a atop to the betting on horseraces n poolrooms but It incidentally put a stop to betting on all racetracks In Kentucky The senate was willing to stamp out the poolroom evil but the abolishment of betting on racetracks meant there would be no more racing In this state so the bill was amended by putting In the following section This act shall not apply to race tracks that are licensed by the state racing commission nor to trotting races that are conducted by a regular ly organized association Senator Jack Chinn made a speech for tho amendment and said If It was not adopted the bill would destroy the breeding Industry In Kentucky that was worth many millions of dollars Senator Hurnom spoke along the same lines and said the men who trained and developed horses must have an In centive and that whenever a prize horse was developed It added to the value of all tho horses In Kentucky that poolrooms were vile places where the lower grades of people congregat ed the round and should be sup pri3sedwhile race meetings were attended by the best people accompan led by their wives and daughters and was a festive holiday occasion that should not be abolished The bill passed the senate by a vote of 33 to 4 and If it passes the house as It is be lieved It will poolrooms and hand book betting on races will soon be a thing of the past The Crocellus tobacco bill has pass ed both the house and senate and is now In the hands of Governor Willson It was thought by some that because Senator Rurnam who Is a close friend of the governors opposed the bill so ardently In the senate that probably the governor will veto It but It Is hardly probable he will do so The hill provides a fine from 50 to 250 for anyone who sells his tobacco after he has pledged It or pooled It and the same flno for anyone who knowingly buys pledged or pooled tobacco The friends of the bill claim It will remove the cause for the night riding and therefore will effectually stop It Sell ator Durnam said it was a dangerous thing to penalize the violation of a civil contract and ho believed tho bill would not serve any good purpose A companion hill to the Crecelius meas ure has also passed both houses It provides a fine of from 100 to 500 for anyone who sells or transfers prop erty where the possession Is In one person and the title In another The famous McChord tobacco bill has passed the house and Is now watt ing Its turn In the senate This bill provides that any person or corpora tion engaged in the business of pur chasing or manufacturing tobacco in thlv stato shall pay a license tax equal to 10 cents on each 1000 pounds of tobacco bought or manufactured In this state the amount of the license to be determined by tho commissioner of agriculture and provides a fine of from 100 to 1000 a day where such business Is conducted without a II cense It Is claimed that this bill will be defeated In the senate and that if it should pass It will likely be vetoed by the governor- A few days ago there was much bit ter feeling and political scheming over the seven contested seats In the house It was claimed that the sitting mem bers should be unseated at once because they had been unfairly elected Attorneys were here constantly urging that the vote be taken to decide these contests as It was a grave Injustice to keep these men out of the seats they were rightfully entitled to occupy Out oh what a difference In the morning As soon as the senatorial race was over everything quieted down and on last Thursday all the contest were by agreement decided In favor of the sitting members and not a single contestant won a seat Why Be cause there was no longer any need for an extra vote to win the race for United States senator Of the seven contests three were against Democrats and four against Republicans sr without questioning the merits or de merits of any one of the contests they just called It a tie and sent all the contestants home with their fingers In their mouths Thats politics The following bills have passed the senate during the past week Bill Increaslpg tho per capita for the Inmates of the State School of Reform from 100 to 140 Bill appropriating 65000 to pay a deficit In the operating expenses of the School of Reform and to erect neces

of next week Persons who participated in the conference have been reluct ant to make any statement and noth ing has been given out officially ex cept the following statement made last night by George M Taylor secretary of the Green River Equity Home Warehouse company In order to cor rect the misleading report that has been circulated Mr Taylor said The 5tatement that all factions of the tobacco growers have decided to unite is decidedly premature Some of us have been trying for several days to devise some plan to submit to tho people upon which it might be posilblc for all to unite but so far we have been unable to find a basis upon which we thought all could r agreeThere appears to be some possibil ity that consolidation or at least concerted action may bo affected That branch of the organization which calls Itself the regular A S of E has for some time past been approaching the mode of manage p mont practiced by the Homo Ware house association In fact the sale of the 1907 crop of tobacco was made under Home warehouse rules and not under old line Equity rules Recently several of the most valient champions of the foreign system of finance and warehousing have an nounced that the old plan was not the bestIt appears practically certain that if there Is to be a reorganization or consolidation It will be largely along the lines heretofore mapped out by the Home warehouse people
