Amer can Society of Equity reached Louis ville yesterday enroute to his home in Hartford from a meeting of the Mich gon branch of the society at Reed City Mich and he was enthusiastic over the splendid showing made by the society in the North says the Cou rier Journal While unable to attend the meeting of the Kentucky Law and Order League one week ago Mr Bar nett said yesterday that he was in sympathy with the movement and hoped it would bring about the much desired results and forever put nn end to night riding in Kentucky He said the work of destruction accomplished In some of the tobacco districts of the State during the past few months had done much to Injure the reputation of Ute State in the eyes of the people of other States He said the people of the North who discussed the situation with him during the past I week were under the Impression that it was dangerous for a person to be on ofItheI t He said in those sections of the North where tobacco is an unknown quantity so far as the raising of the weed is concerned the people could not under stand what was meant by plantbed I scraping and bad an Idea it meant that a body or night riders visited the home of a man and did film some personal violence Mr Barnett said he did not know just when the document showing the strength of the American Society of in the various tobacco districts pubIllcatlonto the world that in those sections where night riding has been preva lent the society was weak he would urge the State Executive Committee to hurry the matter up He said the matter was left to J Campbell Can trill president of the Kentucky Union of the Society and he supposed the serious illness of Judge Catftrill at his I home In Georgetown had preventedI Senator CantHll from headway with the document This document Mr Barnett said would show that in no section of the State where the Society of Equity had any strength had there been any destruction by the night riders while on the other band it would be seen that till of the deeds of personal violence and barn burning bad been accomplish odin territories where the society had very little It any strength at all 4 1 t 1 EQUITY PEOPLE I DISAPPROVE PLAN To Form Organization Independent of the A Sof E Independent and Home Ware houses Are In Favor Of It The regular A S of E men are yet the uncertain quantity In the matter of forming the new organization says the owensboro Inquirer The dis trict meeting of this body held on Thursday of last week suggested sev eral changes In the proposed consti tution and several of these were con sidered good by the conference of Friday and were accepted but the one which provided that the new organiza tion should haVe added to Its name the word Branch of the American Society of Equity was rejected There are many who are unwilling to give up entirely their A S of E organiza tion and they feel that they would be doing this In taking a new organiza tion without any phase of the respected name under which so much has been gained Others are just as free to admit that the proposed Equity addition tothe name would bo only a subterfuge and that the new organiza tion would not In reality be as its name would purport a branch of the A S of E and that the name would therefore be a sham and only for the purpose of decieving some into greater loyal Ity to the A S of E S B Lee national secretary of the A S of E tgba co growers associa tion said on the subject 1 am hearti ly for the new organization It will benefit rather than injure the A S of E The organization Is sure to be formed At least a large part of the A S of E will go Into it just as many A S of E men sold their to bacco through the home warehouse pool the past winter The independents are even more certain to join the new organization and almost enmasso Practically all the home warehouse people will go Into it What will be the effect then If a part of the A S of E should remain out I think it would prove dlsasterous to the body locally If It goes In there will be better feeling and the A S of E princi ples will become better known and more generally adopted There is not anything in the new constitution that is not consistent with equity Is It not better to have the principles widely practiced and inculcated with out the specific name than to have the name preserved and the principles sacrificed or hazarded I think so There is one other matter worth notic ing In this connection That Is that heretofore It has been said that the people were anxious to get together and would do so if the leaders would only permit them Now the leaders of the Independents and of the A S of E have agreed to get together and the people are Invited to do so and if they do not it will be their own fault The conference did not agree on any argument or set of arguments to be addressed to the people but merely agreed to Invite all to the mass meet Ing to be held on April 18 The con stitution proposed for the new organi zation is of course only suggestive and there will be no obligation on those who will assemble on that date to accept the constitution as pro posed Any action desired by those who assemble on that date may be taken though there as a tacit under standing that the constitution as pre pared will be accepted At first it was thought that the A S of E men might object to Owens boro as the place for the mass meet ing to be held but as it is a district meeting the A S of E men who out number the otheV elemfattf I1WId one In the district will have the distinct advantage except that some of them have to come an inconvenient distance to this city There are only about two or three hundred stockholders In the home warehouse company and there are less than fifty of the so called independent growers It Is expected that when the whole situation is carefully gone over by all the elements and when the thinkers among these elements reflect on What has happened In the past weeks and on what may happen In other parts of the state before the date for the as sembling of the growers they will I counsel strongly the coming to th citron that day- Attempts to Blow up the Jackson Jail Jackson Ky Apll GAn attempt t0 blow up the county jail here was mad Saturday night by Ike Jones Tone s was drunk and was placed In Jail but It seems that in searching him the of flcers thought a stick of dynamitE wrapped in a paper to be a stick oi takenWhenof the jail he Immediately began to go from one cell to another attempting to light the dynamite saying that they would all go up together The jailer was called by ons of the prisoners and tne dynamite taken away from Jones 1 o was under a 300 bond for some other offense and was released again yesterday on a 100 bond Among the inmates of the jail who were much alarmed at the prospect of being blown up were Beech Hargis Allen Creech Henry and John Combe and Siguel Turner all charged with murder NORTHERN MINERS BREACH NO AGREEMENT Joint Conference In Indianapolis With Operators Adjourns Without Result Indianapolis Ind April 7The con ference of coal operators of Western Pennsylvania Ohio and Indiana and representatives of the Illinois adjourned at 1115 oclock today after being In session for two hours No resumption of work In the mines of the States rep resented was ordered The next meeting will be held at Toledo Tuesday April 14 when an effort will be made to revive the Interstate agreement between the operators and miners of the central competitive field consisting of these four districts The Illinois miners left at once for Springfield to resume their joint district conference with Illinois operators President Lewis left at noon for Kansas City to take part In the joint con ference of the Southward field The Indiana mines are in operation and under a resolution adopted today will continue to operate Western Pen sylvnnla and Ohio mines will remain Idle until the Toledo meeting There resumption will be the first question consideredIllinois differences will it is expected be adjusted at the Springfield con ference now in session It is probable the Toledo meeting will order resump tion In Western Pennsylvania and Ohio about April 16 It is not expected that Illinois operators will attend the meetingNational Secretary W D Ryan lead er of the Illinois miners said today the operators of his State had made It clear that they would not participate In an interstate agreement this year There Is a possibility that the In diana operators may stay away from Toledo but this Is not probable and it Is believed an interstate agreement for the three districts will be established and the miners ordered to resume work The present scale will in all probability be the basis of agreement wagesThe of the meeting today Is expected to hasten an agreement In Il linois President Lewis will stop at Springfield tonight on his way to Kan sas City The Toledo Joint wage con ference will be composed of about 500 miners and 100 operators The formal call for the convention was Issued to day before the conference adjourned The motion for the joint conference was presented by H L Chapman spokesman of the Ohio and Western Pennsylvania operators and it was favorably voted on by the miners and operators of those States and also in In diana who consistent with their stand from the first conference last October favoring reestablishment of interstate relations acquiesced in these plans looking to that end though narrowed by the nonconcurrence thus far of Il linois operators The selection of Toledo for the joint meeting was on the vote of Ohio and Western Pensylvanla operators and miners the Indiana miners and operators favoring Indianapolis Detroit was also proposed 4Notice To all locals of A S of E In

DUILDINfi FOR KENTUCKY BosworthWyatt Amendment Will Permit Millions to Be Spent In Public Highway Con struction To be Voted on Next Year When Coy Willson signed the Bos worthWyatt bill providing for a con stitutional nmendmenthe made possible the submission of a proposition to the people of Kentucky that will mark an epoch in time State and be of farreaching effect The proposed amendment to the Constitution pledges the credit of the State to counties in building pUblicI roads and highways and the various counties may Issue bonds to the extent of 5 per cent of the to tal assessed valuation of property for taxation for the purpose of building public roads and their maintenance This is a most radical departure as under the present Constitution each county is limited In Its indebtedness for all purposes to 2 per cent of its assessed valuation The measure as first introduced fix ed 10 per cent as the amount to which each county could contract a bonded indebtedness for road building pur poses but this was regarded by many Senators as entirely too much and tho limit was cut down by amendment to 5 per cent in which shape it passed the House and was approved by the GovernorThe will be voted on at the regular election to bo held In No vember 1909 the Constitution stipulat ing that amendments must be voted or at an election for members of the Legislature This is the only con authorIIzedsion of the General Assembly Another amendment providing for a change In the system of taxation and demanded by all the business organizations In th Statefallde to get through the House Under the law only two constitutional theiShould the BosworthWyatt amend ment be ratified by the people it will signalize the beginning of an era of road building In Kentucky the like of which has never been dreamed ofand will result In placing Kentucky In the front rank of States with a modern system of highways In the event that the amendment Is adopted tho succeed ing Legislature will enact a statute in I conformity with its provisions and to carry It Into effect It is contemplated- to create a State Highway Commission to supervise the building of roads which will bo in charge of expert high way engineers Gov Willson in his last special mes sage to the Legislature called Mention to this proposed amendment to the Constitution and the lasting ben cult that would bo derived by such a change in the organic law providing for State aid to road building It Is argued by the advocates of the amend ment that the crying needs of the State are good roads and education They claim that these go hand in hand and one cannot be attained without the other Under tho workings of this amend mendment to tho Constitution of Ken tucky a county with an assessed property valuation of 10000000 will be enabled to Incur a debt of a half mill ion dollars to extent and perfect its road system When the matter was discussed in time Legislature tho se rious handicap under which tho peo ple of the mountain

earth roads that county board be impressed with the ntttl of u lImp- er maintenance of the same and tilai road builders and overseers learn how best to care lor thu reads in the chargoThe persistent and powerful enemies of earth roads arc water und narrow tires and the constant effor of the men in charge of the road should be to guard against their destructive effects and remedy all damage as quickly as possible The simple Implements which have been found to be of greatest assistance in this work are the plow the drag scraper the wheel scraper the road grader and the splitlog drag With a sandy soil and a subsoil of clay and gravel deep plowing so as braise and mix the clay with the surface soil and sand will prove benefl vial The combination forms a sandy clay road at a trifling expense On the other hand if the road be entire ly of sand a mistake will be made if It is plowed unless clad can be added Such plowing would merely deepen the sand and at the same time break up the small amount of hard surface material which may have formed If thol subsoil is clay and the surface scan in sand or gravel plowing should not be resorted to as it would result In a clay surface rather than one of sand or gravel A road foreman must knov not only what to plow and what not to plow but how and when to plow If the road is of the kind which actor ing to the above instructions should be plowed over its whole width the best method is to run the first furrpv in the middle of the road and workout to the sides thus forming a crown Results from such plowing are greatest in the spring or early summer In ditches a plow can be used to good advantage but should be follow ed by a scraper or grader To make wide deep ditches nothing better than the ordinary drag scraper has yet been devised For hauls Under 100 feet or in making fills it is es pecially serviceable It is a mistake however to attempt to handle lout haul material with this scraper as the wheel scraper is better adapted to such work For hauls of more than SOO fee a wagon should be used The machine most generally used Inroad work is the grader or road ma chine This machine is especially use ful in smoothing and crowning the road and in opening ditches A clay subsoil under a thin coating of sol should not be disturbed with a grader It is also a mistake to use a grader indiscriminately and to pull material from ditches upon a sandclay road Not Infrequently turf soil and silt from ditch bottoms are piled in the middle of the road ina ridge making mudholes a certainty It is important in using a grader to avoid building up the road too much at one time A road gradually built up by frequent use ol the grdder will last better than If completed at one operation The foreman frequently thinks his road must be high in the first Instance Ho piles up material from 10 Inches to a foot in depth only to learn with the arri val of the ralnl that he has furnish ed the material for as many inches of mud All material should be brought up in thin layers each layer well pad dled and firmly packed by holler or traffic before the next Is added A common mistake is to crown too high with the road machine on a narrow roadThe split log drag should be used to fill in ruts find smooth the road when not too badly washed The drag possesses great merit and is so simple in construction and opera tion that every farmer should have will be published one A special article later telling how to make and use the dragWhen If French Words Became English The French element which entered i7 Ii uurc1Imoot cof1 Bod The

has heretofore been lenient in recommen sufficientetime has now elapsed for us to assume that the Civil Service rules are under stood throughout the service and w believe therefore that the time has

Kentucky statutes Imposing a tax on distilled spirits in bonded warehouses does not violate the Federal Constitution was asserted by the Supreme Court of tho United States In a decision handed down Monday by Justice McKenna in the case of J B Thompson vs the Commonwealth of Kentucky S Representatives of the Louisville and State Law and Order League Monday urged Gov Willson to call out the mill tia and to call a special session of the State Legislature in order to put down lawlessness in the tobaccoraising districts Gov Willson reiterated his previously announced views but said he would announce his decision in a few days The Governments of both the United States and Mexico have been troubled i by the growing distrust of this coun try on the part of the citizens of Mexi co who

into the field against him I Another of Bryans enemies from his own household will be nominated when the Hearts Independence League or National party meets two or three weeks after Bryans nomination by the Democrats The walkout of the Minnesota and the Ne braska delegations does not alter Ir the slightest degree the fact that the bulk of all of Bryans old Populist supporters are against him in 1908 They gave him hundreds of thou sands of votes in 1896 and 1900 fur nished him a chance to boast that his poll in 1896 was greater than Cleve lands was in 1892 and were the ele ment which gave him the strength among tho people which placed him higher on the roll than Parker This fire In the rear on Bryan Is certain to tell powerfully against him sin the campaign The selection of Samuel W Williams of Indiana for ticketrIs to Bryan at a strategic spot In the Dem ocratic line The Democrats started out by announcing that Indiana was one of the states in which they In tended to make an especially active canvass in 1908 Watson as candi date of the Populist party received only 2500 votes In Indiana in 1904 but it is probable that his poll will be larger in tho state in 1908 Bry an will get all the Southern States which Parker carried ex cept possibly Maryland and Ken tucky Maryland went against him In 1896 and 1900 and Kentucky turned him down in the first of those years Kentucky gave him a short lead in 1900 but it went against the candidates for State officers in most of the elections since 1900 in which he made a personal canvass for the Democratic nominees While the Populist will see to it that Bryan will make no conquests in the West in 1908 Hearts party will fix things so that he can have no chance to carry any of the Eastern States Hearst has a personal

intended on account of the restless conditions in the tobacco growing districts of the state lIe appeared to be as composed as he was when ho left Loulsvlllo last Monday I am keeping in touch with the

ant- I will send soldiers wherever need ed I am not going to order out the entire militia of the State and scatter them where there is no need for soldiers I myself must keep within the pale of the law I dont think sol diers are needed in Louisville and I dont think they are needed in many counties in the state I am not going to act hastily in this matter for I am the one on whose shoulders rests all the responsibility of calling out the soldiers As I have repeatedly said I have not been asleep all the time that I have been in the Governors chair and I am still going to keep a close

explanation has hitherto been ffured to account for tho difference In this respect between animal and vood charcoal In Mr E Knechf pinion tho explanation Is probably conned cd with the fact that animal iharcoal contains front 5to 7 percent of nitrogen whllo there Is only a traced that element in wood chorcoal His ittempts to eliminate the nitrogen by seating tho animal product with caustl soda were only partially successful the proportion of nltrogenIn a typical case being reduced from 56 to 361 per cent but he found that tho decolorizing pow cr as tested upon solutions of dyes vas reduced as the percentage of nitrogen fell From the results of his experiments ho concludes that 1 Fixed nitrogen Is present In animal charcoal and 2 the declorlzlng capacity Is directly proportional

1683i Tobacco Was Used As Money In VirglniaHteh Price In 1819 In 1CS3 an extraordinary series of oocurences grew out of the low price of tobacco says the historian Many people signed petitions to stop planting for one year This request was not granted so they banded them selves together and went through the country destroying tobacco plants wherever found The evil grew to such an extent the assembly passed a law that the malefactors had passed beyond the bounds of riot and that their aim was the subversion of the government It was enacted that If any persons to the number of eight or more should go about destroying tobacco plants they should be adjudged traitors and suffer death TIt Sl oceurences over 20Q years sea provo that there Is nothing new under the sun Of course the good old pioneers of this country did not have the trust to contend with but the trouble In those days proved to be everprnhvion The first lew passed by the first tnrm1 assembly of Virginia in 1019 referred 10I8C0 The price was fixed at three nhilllngs for the hest and the vcoud sort at ISd the pound The tobacco WHS Inspected and if not vendnble at the second price it shall then I MI immediately burnt before the owuera face- Tolrteco was In those days the money used Later a law was passel that If any one missed divine ser vice he should bo fined one pound of tobaccoIn notwithstanding the law tobacco declined In price Then a law was pawed to the effect that no planter should plant above 2000 plants for canh member of the family The priM continued to decline Now all tin Imil and half the good should bt destroyed but things gradually be came worse until In 1661 11 treaty WMS negotiated between the colonies of MarjlandVlifeliila and Carolina to IItoll planting tobacco for one year sincti tlo market were glutted with It and the value was so low that the planter could not live from the ronultg of his labor Then followed the rlow of 1CS3 which were followed by the strict laws as mentioned above Excenticities of Human Nature While on a visit to the good city of Owenshoro recently I witnessed a street scene some features of which as Illustrating eccentric variations of human nature are worth describing While passing the citys chief hoi stery my attention was attracted by 4 little band of uniformed Christian workers walking with ordered step an graceful pulse up the street When directly In front of me the right wing swung around with unbroken jncoKiirc to face the pavement where J had stopped The little army was made up of three elderly persons two men and one woman a man and wo man of middle age two young la dies and two boys one thirteen the other five The uniform of all was blue the womens relieved with white tape and the mens with red Over their coats the men and boys wore short skirts about the length of those worn by bal let dancers Aside from the charming serenity of the faces of the younger people was the immaculate cleanliness of their person and apparel They had evidently practic ed the virtue of cleanliness to Its e ft i t1 i fL it last extremity The faces of the older members though clean and clear and frank could lily conceal with faith and prayer and hope of things eter nal that they had felt the hardening touch of life but the face of the younger ones whose necessities are provided for by their elder told to the discerning observer a story of un troubled innocence and of unsuplclon lug trust in things of earth and hea venWith song and exhortation for nei ther of which nature had very Itc ther of which nature had very fitly endowed them these quaint folks en tertained for a half an hour the mot ley throng that gathered round them Personally I gave little attention to their song less to their exhortation but reflected with sober reverence on the wellspring from which these people drew their enduring enthusi asm for their curious course of life Granting them the best intentions of which they were conscious How ever well concealed by art or Ignor ance there is in every human breast a hunger for applause and in ways as various as tho colors of the forest men seek to appease it But It is a melancholly spectacle to seellverled stupidity parading In heavens name unwittingly for the applause of earthIA few years ago the people then living in the southern part of Ohio county attracted attention by their eccentric mode of worship but time and contact with the world in their persistent itinerancy have reduced their conduct to a wild kind of order not totally wanting in interest to the casual observer- J H THOMAS

town late this afternoon with eight of the eleven alleged night riders who have been indicted as their prisoners The sight that greeted citizens of Benton in the place of shackled and chained bad men was a mer ry laughing crowd of ten horsemen that appeared more like sa many prosperous Kentucky planters on their way for a county fair than they did sheriffs men charged of alleged members of the bold torchoperating night riders The alleged ngiht riders arrested were as follows Burnett Phelps Wick Terry Wallace Stringed Sam Colley Amos Stringer Louis Shaudet Nick Tarry tom Mc CainSheriff Eley and his son Will who Is the deputy sheriff left town early today They were treated well by every man they met All questions as to road and house of the men they were after were answered The offi cers did not have to forage for lun cheon or dinner They could have been welcome gusts at a half dozen or more tables if their stomachs had pos sessed the capacity for enjoying that many Kentucky dinners The only ones of the eleven Indicted men missed by Sheriff Eley were Dr John Champion Fred Holden and Will McAtee Of that trio Dr Champion lives In Lyon county McAtee was not at home while Holden was in Benton selling hogs at the time the sheriff was calling at his home in the coun tryAn example of the manner Sher iff Eleys raid was taken by the accused night riders is shown by the behavior of Burnett Phelps who wa the first man to be served with a warrantDeputy Sheriff Will Eley was not acquainted with roads in that part of Marshall county and Phelps volunteered to show him around The officer accepted and together the prisoner and deputy sheriff visited the home of several of the others The eight alleged night riders soon after riding Into Bento gave bond in the sum of 1000 each

the new railroad had been suspended We failed to report the matter To have done so we considered would be a breach of confidence By Saturday it became generally known and was on the lips of every one Speculation was rife Reports of all kinds were heard Some to the effect that there would be but a brief layoff some that nothing more would be done for a year at least and some to the fact that nothing more would ever be done- Tuesday Messrs Rowan Holbrook and R E Leo Slmmcrman went to Louisville to confer wth L N of ficials who told them that nothing would be done for a year but at the end of that time the road would be corn t pleted as quickly as possible They assigned as the reason for stopping work the shortage of funds to carry It on 800000 has been expend ed thus far and 300000 will complete the road and it Is difficult to under I stand how the company can without great loss suspend work for a whole year Just when good weather is I coming on The Madisonville Hustler says of tho suspension of work The Hustler has received information from a reliable source that op erations on the M H E Railroad have been suspended for an indefl lute time The supension is tem porary and it is believed that opera tions will be resumed in a short timeThe cause of suspension of opera tions on the part of the system that reaches Madlsonvllle was because of the promoters being unable to obtain steel rails for the new road The manufacturing concerns in Bessemer and Birmingham Ala where the company have been purchasing their steel rails have closed down because of labor troubles and this worked such a hardship on the promoters that the only thing they coujd do was to suspend operations Mr C H Dishman who has charge of the construction work on this end of the road had his wagons hauled to his warehouse Saturday and his force has ceased work for a short time at least The suspension will last only a short while and as ROOD as the labor differences in these two titles are adjusted operations will be resumed and the work will be rapidly pushed to completion CLEAR RUN March 7Rev Fuqua filled his ap pointment hero Saturday and Sunday The play party at Mr Llm Smiths

with the resolutions passed by the national convention at Indianapolis and were unmindful of the agree ment that was made in the city Although the sentiment was not gen eral it was staled last night
