plaintiff and the computatou of damages was the only LMter that required time It Is now believed that there will be A general exodus from the State of men who have been whipped by night riders and that the Federal Court will j be deluged with suits for damages Most of the defendants are wealthy planters In many counties in the dark tobacco district conviction of night riders are Impossible

tho Jury secretly summoned most of them being resi dents of Louisville Attorney for the plaintiff asked for Immediate capias in order to prevent the defendants from disposing of their property to avlod execution Attor neys for the defense asked for time to give bond for an appeal- It is generally believed that this verdict is a death blow to night riding as it will frighten property owners and influential members of the community from banding with the outlaws Judge Evans thanked the jury and said he trusted their action would Oiave a beneficial effect on the whole com munityIn to an

will bean eventful and historic week in Wash ington The arrival has already be gun of one of the most eminent groups of men that have ever gathered here Included in the assemblage will be fortyfour Governors Af States and Territories their advisers to the num ber 153 and fiftynine Presidents of tho leading national organizations of the United States The occasion is the Conference on Natural Resources which will be held at the White House this week and over which President Roosevelt will presidePresident Roosevelt in his letter of invitation to tho Governors said It is tho plain duty of us who for the moment are responsible to takoI inventory of the natural resources which have been handed down to us to forecast the needs of the future and so handle the great sources of our prosperity as not to destroy in advance all hopo of the prosperity of our de scendantsFacts which I cannot gainsay forte me to believe that the conservation of our natural resources is the most weighty question now before the peo pIe of the United States If this is so the proposed conference which is the first of its kind will be among the most Important gatherings in our his tory in its effect upon the welfare of all our people Tho conference represents tho climax In the development of President Reese velts policy regarding natural re I sources It Is a natural outgrowth of the activities of the forest service and l also of the work of the reclamation service and of the more recently established technologic branch of the Geological Survey More directly the conference owes Its origin to the work of the Inland Waterways Commission When President Roosevelt appointed that commission he drew attention to tho nor cessity of considering not only tho waterways but all allied natural re sources And the members of the commission did not go far before they saw the necessity for this broad outlook They found that one of tho most efficient methods of securing steady stream flow avoiding floods in the wet seasons and low water In dry seasons was to provide a huge natural sponge in tbql headwaters of streams and this1 sponge is the forest And so the commission was confronted at once with the necessity of forest conservation add of refor estratlon They Loud too that the clad ty of streams as well as the mainten ance of a steady flow depends upon proper cultivation of the soil andS Itherwere carried into the realm bt agriculture d F f o PLAN TO GUT- KENTUGKY Pi Bullitt Ernst Cochran and Roberts to be Distributors Kentuckys Vote Said to have re

Ernst as National Committeeman will be the undisputed dictator of Repub willibefavors by Cochran Bullitt and Roberts Those who are familiar with the tight which Ernst and his associates made feel that they are entitled to all they get For weeks and months they were at work and the fact that I Ernst fell but two votes short of tho number pledged from Kentucky toI Secretary Tuft when the executive was in Louisville some weeks before the county mass convention and tho state convention were held demonstra tes that there was never a time when Ernst was not the master of the situ ation and did not know exactly what he was doing and what the Taft strength was The Taft men had easy sailing in Kentucky until the elec tion of Bradley to the Senate His opposition to the Secret ray or War gave the Taft men rough sledding all the rest of the way If Caleb Powers had been pardoned by Governor Wlllson before tho ad journment of tho Stato convention there is no doubt but that he would have been sent to Chicago as one of the big four His friends now assert however that tho Governor will have acted on his application for a pardon before the Chicago convention meets and those who are confident that he will be given his freedom say that he will attend the convention anyway and the Republican party in the na tion will bo given an opportunity to make n hero out of Powers Cln natl EnqulrerDukeWester

my plat form 1 was for Fairbanks I fought his battles the best I could I had a right to do It but the men who differ with me had as great right These things are of small concern Even the President Is of small concern when measured up with the Interests of the Republican party We Republicans have gone down in defeat in the past in Kentucky At the last election we won a signal via tory The comlUee is entitled to credit for it but there were men all over the Commonwealth who went out on tho stump and among their neighbors and fought for the victory who are entitled to as great credit It was a great victory and it was won by united efforts and with the assistance of Democrats who helped us winFor Heavens sake dont throw away the fruits of victory Let us do nothing that will put us back Into the valley of the shadow of defeat If Wd do that we shall be false to our selves and to the Republican party This struggle over the loaves and the fishes is of small importance and amounts to little

netted you more money It is not true that every bond and share of stock that you own hits back of it either a physical property or some sort of going concern or enterprise Is It not true that nearly all corporations and enterprises are capitalized at a sum that rarely admits of a net earning above the usual 5 or 6 per cent Would you refuse to purchase for 10 per cent of its face value a

rushing motorcar having been pressed Into requisition by L WI Page Director of the office of Publlc Roads and Dr Allerton S Cushman Assistant Director In the effort to determine the effects of auomoblle traffic upon macadam highways and the stretch of thoroughfare was placed I at their disposal by War Depart ment officials While the racing car nnd others of various weights and types made many trips over the selected stretch of a mile and a half at varlng rates of speedy from 5 to 65 miles an hour n corps of skilled photographers equipp ed with tho most modern devices for photographing vehicles at very high speeds made accurate records of the various tests It has Jong been known to highway engineers that automobiles were rapid ly shortening the lives of the rock surface roads of the world and many experiments have been made In the past six or seven years to determine the actual cause of the damage done To understand how the soft broad tires of the modern moter car can work an Injury to a surface that not only with stands but improves under tho con stant passing and replacing of vehicles with iron tires one must be apprised briefly of the theory on whlcl first Tresauget of Limoges and latter MacAdam of Ayr worked when giv ing such highways to tho world They reasoned that a road surfaced with bits of stone would improve under wagon traffic because the iron tires of the passing vehicles would constant ly crush the stone andform rock dust particles that thoso rock dust particles would not merely fill In all the interstices between the stones but would also form a surface dust binder the wettings and rollings tending to cement the dust Into a shell like sur face and thus make the entire road one trafficwithstanding watershed ding mass They reasoned well and wisely The macadam roads lived up to the theories of their Inventors and improved with the passing years until the ad vent of the automobile It was but a short time niter it came into vogue that highway engineers in all civilized lands learned that a new condition wa confronting them and that establish ed customs were being menaced The trouble was quickly traced to the au tomobile and It was studied It was soon noted that the soft rubber tire was the highway menace It crush ed no rock Itself and therefore con tributed no quota of the needful sur ffice dust binder while the tremen dous tractive force of tho rear wheels drew up the dust made by tho iron tired wagons and sent It whirling awa over adjacent lands Those who witnessed the expert menu of Thursday near the National Capital could not doubt for a moment that the various road experts all over the world are correct in the opinion that very rapidly driven automobiles are rapidly tearing up the surface of the macadam road for not only were huge clouds of dust lifted into the air and blown off the road but care ful examination showed that the ma terial under the wheel tracks of the machine wits distinctly loosened and ravelled even during the short period of these tests No such effects were noticeable after the passing of iron tired vehicles the series of tests beginning with the passing I of a horse drawn vehicle This was photographed as it moved along and also the wagon tires passed a given mark Then the automobiles were sent over the course The first was a heavy weight touring car moving at five miles an hour A series of pictures was made of that car on its many Journeys at varying rates of speed until its maximum of 45 m1 eI an hour wtis attained Then the work was taken uP by the huge racer which Sore down the road first at a speed of 50 miles an hour then at 55 60 and finally at 64 It fairly lifted the road surfacing mater- Ial as it sped along regular ridges of rock dust rising in front of the rear wheels and floating aWay in blinding clouds Other tests were made rii I of Co You Think For Yoursol Oral ron open your mouth U1e a young bird ad gulp down whatever fujd ort edl too ma

Attorney General Breathltt and he has been reading that record but has been unable to do anything with it in the daytime on account of the pressure of the daily work In the office but has worked on Itat night very faithfully and today I sent for the record to try to fin ish It myself but I have found that it will be better to have the Attorney General complete the report on the Howard recrod and

Sons of Toll gatheldntF county last Saturday and were addressed by some of the notable speak I ers of tho State relatives to their du ty as good farmers and especially as I tobacco growers among them Senator ICantnn who in a short but very con t vincing and able talk made it plain to those farmers present that It was their duty to themselves and to their pos ipterity that if they raised a crop of tobacco this year which it seems most farmers in this locality have arran ged to do that they should place it In the pool and I feel qulto sure that n along this line ho touched a popular chord because this sentiment had hardily been uttered when a general and spontaneous outburst of approval came from the large audience p This labor In which ho is engaged of trying to loose tho shackles of a i heartless and soulless corporation that Ir bind both hand and foot and would forever condemn to serfdom with all ithatimplies as noblo and true product of humanity us was over created The Kentucky farmer is a noblo work anti we bid him God speed f Others were here too who made stlring appeals to duty Notably Mr our Commissioner of Agricul I 4Rankin organized a farmers club a plain candid way convinced I all that he is both big of heartland mind as well as of physique and that he Is in thorough touch and sympa thy with tho farmer and that their inertcsts are his interests To all such the latch stlring is always on the outside and we extend a hearty wel 1 dome Mr Hanna like his prototype tho lato lamented Marcus A In an able address convinced all of his stqr ling qualities and his loyalty to that issue which so vitally concerns tho Kentucky farmer of today There is nothing wrong with Hanna Who says nothing good can come out of Nazareth From among tho sand stones the briars and bushes of g the poorest section of tills county has sprung out a noble product of sturdy I 5rbung manhood who with a heatr big I enough to love all mon and an lion Ior above reproach has made common cause with tho farmers and tobacco grower of this State and In his gen tlemanly manner and convincing ar gument It IB known of all men that his Interests are thoroughly wrapped up In that of tho yeomanry of thocoun try I refer to the Hon Bunk Strange Representative from this county who is honored and admired wherever known and I speak whereof I know when I say that any office within the gift of the people of this county is his for the asking It was currently reported that Gen Buckner would also be there to deliver a lecture on law and order but ho failed to put In an appearance I doubt not that had ho come he would have been listened to attentively be cause we are a law abiding and law respecting people but with all duo re spect to Gen Buckner who Is both an honorable and honored citizen ofthis county and no ono holds him In great er esteem than myself I want to say to him and to all others that we do not need an apostle front tho law and fLorder leaguo of LOuisville or a repre sentative from that class jf winter I tobacco growers who Inhitblt the lower end of Main street or better still per haps that class of farmers who farm tho farmers to come down hero and tell prlnI i i and wo hold It as sacred as any law and order league or any ono else We I have held tho law Inviolate under tho most trying circumstances As asso ciation men we have seen our Iooled tobacco coerced from tho holder In the most questionable manner our rights as freemen and citizens trampled upon by the most heartless of trusts yet through it lilt havo remained stead fast to the law Though deserted by our Governor whom we helped to elect and who in his weak and onesided administration has dono and is doing absolutely nothing to ameliorate our condition but rather to aggravate from tho fact that he would turn loose his engines of war on the night rider who In a large measure was made such In pelt abiding men should say punish them If guilty but in tho name of Juvtico and fair play do not punish them and jet the greater criminal the trust go free Still in tho faco of all this we perservere in and are Immovably fixed In the belief that all law Is grounded on justice with special privileges to none and with equal and exact rights and Immunities to sill I whatever their color or previous con r + dition No great question of vital Yconcern to the people was over settled 1 1 Jn I

Deacon to the Conger gatlon Lexington Ky May nDr W Porter pastor of the First Baptist church one of the largest and most fashionable churches of the city at the close of his sermon yesterday morning said that ne bad received a communication from a deacon of the congregation in which the latter said he had for several Sundays been un able to see the preacher during the services on account of the Merry Widow hats of the ladles in front of him obstructing his view The writer said that not being able to see the minister while the latter was preaching deprived him of much of the pleasure and benefit of the dis course and as others hnd complained that the new style hats obstructed the view of tho pulpit of all the persons In the church except those in the first row of seats he requested that the pastor take some steps to remedy the trouble Dr Porter said he was much em barrassed by the request but fully recognized the justice of the com plaint and realized that something must be done about 1L He admitted that he did not have sufficient cour age to ask the ladies to take off their hats In church and as the only other solution of the problem he would rec ommend to the officers of the church that the seats back of the first two rows should be elevated so that all the congregation would bo enabled to see what was going on in the pulpit The New Republican Committee Following Is
