shore A serious accident was narrowly averted when the battleship Illinois second in lino from tho Alabama flagship of Roar Admiral Sperry parted her ani chor chain in tho height of the and went drifting toward the shore The Illinois headed directly for the Alabama and it looked for a longtime as though a collision was imminent But heroic work by tho helmsmen managed to steer the drifting ship away and the only damage done was the tearing away of the port gangway of the Alabama Tune Illinois drifted fully 800 yards before her emergency anchors sent spinning Into the white capped waters finally held fast Tho winds continued today and tho Illi nois made no attempt to regain her position In the fourth division column- A thousand liberty men wore ashore and the problem of finding a place for them to sleep severely taxed the available buildings in Monterey Admiral Sperrys barge from the Alabama had a hole stove in her bow as a result of a collision with the ships gangway and was beached later in the night A schooner laden with lime also went ashore and a gasoline launch in which a lighted lantern had been left caught fire and went to tho bottom It is believed that the anchor

shall not be considered that so long as the customs produced by an Increased volume of foreign imports shall be equal to the task of paying the expenses of the Government the part carts nothing about the effect of this policy upon the prosperity of the nation In other wroda the Ameri can consumer will buy foreign goods exclusively after adding to the for eign price a tax sufficient to nay the

The Worlds Ehormuous Coal Fuel Bill Says Prof Fernald Less than twentyfive years front now railroad locomotives will carry no fuel Trains all over the country will be run by power conveyed by wire from a dozen great central plants located in the neighborhood of coal- mines There will be no smoke no cindes to make a journey by ran disagreeableThus Robert H Fernald expert in charge of the government fuel inquiry is quoted by Robert Franklin the Technical World Magazine fir MayIt has been proved practicable he says by the help of gas producers and gas engines to convert the eney gy of coal Into electricity anti trans mit It by wire over distance exceeding 250 miles This means that trains could be run from a single central plant over 200000 square miles area nearly four times that of the States of Illinois and that ten 01 twelve such plants located at or near mining centers could furnish motive power for all the railroads In the United States Now that it is commercially possible to transmit electric power two nun dred and fifty miles or more says Prof Fernald the location of immense gas producers at the mines or within easy reach of them must speeds ly follow But it should not be sup posed that this power will be utili zed only by the railroads of the country It will be supplied to factories and employed for all sorts of indus trial purposps In cities and tofns

great White House conference on May 13 there will be gathered In the East Room of the Executive Mansion one of the most notable assmeblages of men in the history of the United StatesThe Governors of all the States have signified their intention of beI- ng present at this conference and each will bring with him three men carefully chosen from among thoI learned of his State to act as advis ers in

range of subjects to be discussed will cover the entire programme of National conservation Why we Sleep The well known explanation that the stuffiness of the atmosphere in a Church is the causo of sleepiness in members of the congregation is ac cording to the Revue Sclentlfiquo Paris Insufficient If this hypot sis were tenable argues our authority It is manifest that tho congregation or those members of It who react road ly to a soporific agent would go to sleep before the serrmon began Now it is I notorious that the sleeping is dono dur Ing the sermon The true explana tion is that the auditor unconsciously hypnotizes himself or herself by con centrating the gaze for a long period on a single object whether the coun tenance of the preacher of the pulpit or what not The more

the dirt roads have been almost impassible In many places One thing has been demonstrated and that is the fact that the only way to pro1do roads in this country is to macadamize them Our county Judge

the County Judges seat than W B Taylor The use of money to influence elec tions Is one of the crying evils of the times All panics are more or less guilty of this debauch of the electorate It has gone to the extent of corrupting votes to influence one I faction against another in the same party This condition cannot con I tinue much longer without mining the government In all departI ments This Is a fruitful some of our reformers who have exploited other evils so much It fur nishes the trusts with their enormous power today As long as money is the all powerful force In elections the trust will

anticipated the President in a message to Congress hus declar ed that in his opinion the time has now arrived to revise the Tariff but he couples this declaration with the statement that it is peculiarly the province of the House of Repre sentatives to originate a Tariff bill and determine upon its terms Doubt less this is true but we also believe it to be true that if the House of Representatives whose committees must in the nature of things be more fa miliar than anybody else with the workings of our Tariff laws had been left to themselves there would have been very little talk about Tar iff revision In Republican circles The party would have entered upon the coming campaign with its old en thusiasm tor the principles which it has so long and BO successfully main tained and under whose operation the country has so greatly prospered The movement for Tariff reform has not had its origin among the statesmen nrho bare the most intimate knowl I 4 edge of tIe subject It had Its ori gin and has had its main support In New York importing and Eastern and foreign steamship interests aided In the end by a small number of Influ ential domestic Interests which de sire the country to buy greater foreign market for themselves at the ex pense of some other Industry And these forces have made an Impression upon some Republican statesmen who are not specially familiar with Tariff schedules and their effects San Fran deco Chronicle n r Drawbacks of ReciprocityS- ome of the more recent Tariffs like the Dlngley act of the present day had reciprocity stipulations and In some Instances these have been put into operation in a small way Mr Blaine the most conspicuous champion of the reciprocity Idea got that scheme Incorporated into the McKin ley law of 1590 But that principle had many drawbacks With each of the various counties with which we would make especial deals we would have different rates of duties Necessarily these breaks in the different spots In the Tariff line would create Jealousy among the counties which were discriminated against RetalHa tion against us would bo threatened or would be perpetrated Such reciproci ty deals IS we made never had a very long career They Introduced aeon fusion Into our schedules which did us more harm than good Hence hi recent years the reciprocity Idea has been losing favor The flat rate to all counties without granting special favors to any of them has been preferred to the special deals on the isolated and miscellaneous give and I take plansSt Louis Globe Democrat Killed in a Gold Smelter Leitchfield Ky

the American Tobacco company is ireparing to pull up stakes and quit business in Kentucky is a very tame joke It Is too preposterous for se rious conditions There is grown in Kentucky and nowhere else peculiar types of tobacco which the American Tobacco company must have The Owensboro type can not be raised at Henderson thirty miles away nor at Hopkinsvlllo seventy five miles away nor at Murray or Mayfield one hundred and fifty miles away nor at Lexington two hundred miles away Nor can the Henderson Hopkinsville Mayfield or Lexington types be raised in the Owensboro dls trict successfully The American Tobacco company has patrons who demand the Owensboro type as well as tho Lexington type and other types Tobacco grown in Missouri Louisiana Michigan Conneticut or North Carolina does not and

wealthy bachelor of Aberdeen S D and Miss Jen nie Olsen el cveny earsold step daughter of Mrs Gunness The other three bodies are so badly decomposed as to make identification impossible The discovery of the bodies was brought about by the appearance of John Heldgren of Aberdeen S D brother of Andrew Heldgreu in Laj pore in search for the missing man With information that his brother Andrew had come to Laporte to wed Mrs Gunnessand That he had turned over his property to her ho became convinced that he had been made the victim of foul play While questioning Joseph Maxson a hired hand on the Gunness farm he learned of the mysterious digging of holes by him all of them being filled up at a later date by Mrs Gun nets He led Heldgren and the of ficers to the spot where the holes hul been dug about 150 feet from the house and there after digging a few minutes was uncovered the body Of Heldgren The remains were only un der four feet of ground and were enclos cd in a gunny sack The leg and arms had been dismembered but were with the trunk About thirtyfeet further on from the huoso the remains of four other persons were found Lying on top of a mattress were the skeletons of two men and a woman Underneath the mattress was the body of an elev enyearold girl said to be Jennie OlsenAll the bodies were taken in charge by the Coroner and are now locked in a barn on the Gunness farm be big carefully guarded The discovery of tho bodies led the expressmen to tell of the delivery of five trunks to tho Gunness farm dur- Ing the last six monthsaud this fact has caused the authorities to work on the theory that the place was the clearing house for murders They sus pect that wealthy persons after lured to Chicago and killed werebeingI ed in these trunks and sent porte to be disposed of The

upon the presidential movement in the Delewarans behalf The statement attributed to Judge Gray In Pittsburg said Mr Beamish has been made by him several times and it is to be taken literally He is not seeking the nomination and has neither aided nor encouraged the ac tivities of those friends who see in him therefore most exemplar of De mocracySome time ago it became known that Judge Gray would not be a can didate but that if nominated he would not refuse the call of his party This stand is well known to all his supporters and the Pittsburg declara tion in no way conflicts with his past attitude His friends believe they Have a right to call upon his services as a Democrat notwithstanding his per sonal desires in the matter and every one having knowledge of the Judges sound party fealty is

moneyless man leans back in his seat and says to his fel lowcommuter I could be as rich as old Moneybags but I would rather be honest 1 have come to the con clusion that it requires a very low order of ability to become rich if II man is willing to do the things WILt are necessary Then he feels n glow of virtue passes into bitterness when he reaches home and finds that his wife needs a new dress

humanity when a man raises his fin ger and nods he will keep his word without question The history of the New York Stock Exchange has no exception to this rule But that Is not an Isolated caseIt runs through tho business world In China perhaps the oldest business nation 1u the world over what do they do If a Chinese comprador steals or defaults or is dishonest his European employer need not worry

Prevent Spring Floods The greatest development of water power that has ever taken place In the United States has been accomplished during the hist few years on the river which drains the Southern Appalachian Mountains according to an official report on the water re sources of this region It is esti mated that there is at least 2800000 indicated horsepower development by the streams which have their headwaters on this watershed and more than half of this Indicated power is available for economic development Only a comparatively small part of this has been made use of yet but the portion that has been utilized has been one of the most Important factors in the recent industrial de fU1tureduosly Manufacturing plants are constantly Increasing in number in the region and it is reasonable to expect that in time the center of the cotton weaving Industry In the United States may be moved from the streams of New England where it has remained for so long nearer to the source of supply for the raw material Moreover waterpower or power or iginating in the streams will be more and more in demand here as every where else in the country on account of the increasing cost of fuel power through dwindling fuel resources of tho country Already the water power costs much less than the fuel and the difference will inevitably grow greater One great difficulty of then users of water power not only in the South but along the Now England streams rfs well though possibly to a less degree is the fact that If can not be depended upon the year around but must be supplemented and replaced for some weeks or months eVe cry summer by costly fuel power be= clues the streams run too low to be of service More than this as the years go on mill owners are painfully aware that the lowwater periods ore growing longer and longer Tills is because the forests at the headwaters of the streams are being cut off with the result that the melting winter snows an the spring rains pour off the denud ed and hardened land in devastating floods sending down for a few weeks far more water than they can use and moreover reducing the capacity and uefulnesss of their mlllponds by fil ling them with hundreds of tons of sand and soil whcih the floods scour off the unprotected upper slopes Nowhere fire bulnesss men wider awake to the danger than Jn the South If indlcsriininate putting of the forests on the crests of the wat er shed can be stopped there Is a possibility according to a recent report of experts of increasing the devel opment of power up to anywhere from 3 to 30 times the 1400000 horsepow er at present available Without it almost nothing can be done The method proposed to develop the Ap to the to storIagosurplus waters of the spring and retain them until the sumhier monUls when the mills now have to fall back on fuel or close down The United States Geological Survey has kept records of eteamflowin the Appalachians for a number of years and recently they made a careful study of the possibilities of storage reservoirs in that region The Forest Senlet has published their reportunder the title Toile Relation of the Southern Appalachian Mountains to the development of water power as Forest Service Circular 144 and will send it tree to anyone up on application The experts of the Geological Siirvey who made time in vestigation after picking out reservoir sites and estimating their Capacity and the area from which they would receive the runoff consider the figures given above extremely con servative Even with only 1400000 horsepower the annual return at 20 horsepower per year would amount to 28000000 That is equal to a gross Income of 3 per cent on a capital of about 933000000 These figures seem to Justify a considerable outlay of

purpose when the Democratic party breaks with him to march off with his following and set up distinctly for himself I In the Parker movement of 1904 Gov Swunarjn was one of the prominent and hopeful Southerners and it is strange that knowing the sort of treatment Mr Bryan gavo tho ticket another nomination for the Nebraska agitator and fuslonist could occur to any sincere Democrat as good strategy Mr Bryan had a chance in 1904 to support another Democratic loader with wholesouled ardor Ho gave Parker the marblo heart Wherever 1 l Bryan was strongest Parker suffered the most Tiryan had no more ani mosity against Parker than ho would cherish against and Democrat who could displace himself at the head of his party Mr Bryan claims this place In his estimation it is not open to rivalry

Supplies But roe Enough to Produce Famine Louisville Ky May 4Whlle there will doubtless be plenty of whiskey loft over for an abundance of cocktails and highballs next year nod all smokers and cheers of tobacco will be able to eke out an ex iweiice it Is a fact that the produc tion of bourbon whiskey will bo materially reduced in 1905 and also thM thero will be little Burley tobac priwn In the commonwealth LUFC year Kentucky turned out 2fi 160211 gallons of bourbon In 1HOC between 20000000 and 30OnoOOO were produced In Kentucky Distillers say however that the production this year may not exceed 10000000 gallons Some ray that the production may be M much as 20000000 gallons but none of the most conservative men in the bus ness expect the production to reach that high mark They attribute the reduction in the production to numerous causes The wideipread prohibition movement and till financial depression are two of the fillet reasons a gnell for cut ting down the output but there Is alto another and very potent reason given This time last year distillers my that corn was selling at COc n bushel Now the price is 70e Rye new brings tiOc while this time last year it old for 70c while malt which now sells at 125 could be bought ar this period of last year at- eW Wih these Increases In the cost of material together with the regu larity with which the AntiSaloon Leslie IIM l een closing up saloons all over ihu United States the distillers of LouimNle and Kentucky havo had a good sized scare thrown into them Therefore It can be safely said that the whiiky production of the State for 100S will not l e more than half what ItIII Iii 107 Last year Kentucky produced In the neighborhood of 200000000 pounds of white Burley tobacco With about 100000000 pounds in the Burley to bacco pool yet unsold the Burley branch of the American Socloty of Equity started tho agitation to cutout the IMS crop TIle night riders begun to operate extensively in Central Kentucky and as n result there are many of tho 55 Burley tobacco growing counties In tho State that will raise practically none of tho leaf at all Some farmers have small patches and will grow Just enough to make a years chowin and smokln This condition prevails in practical ly all the counties in Central Ken tucky north and cast of Franklin county In the counties between Franklin and Louisville somo Bur ley tobacco will be grown Among these counties are Spencer Nelson Washington Anderson Mercer and Jefferson Numerous officials of the Louisville Tobacco Warehouse company and others who are In close touch with the tobacco situation throughout the state figure that this year they will consider that a good sized crop has been grown If it amounts to ID or 20 at 1 1 Ie I t Jr I i er cent of last years crop Officers of the Burley society say that the 1908 Burley crop will not amount to o per cent ot the 190crop The fact that there are now about 100000000 pounds of Burley tobacco in the pool makes certain that there will be no lack of cigarettes and chewing and smoking tobacco for the next year no more than that there I will be of drinks that are made moro seductive by the mixture in them of a few drops of Kentucky whisky Thus far the American Tobacco company has not felt tho need of the pooled tobacco sufficient to buy It0 Too Late for Last Week SUNNYDALE April 3oNot very much farm work is
