look at U Even before 1903 it had been kept in the safe but it was often brought out for admiring citizens to scrutinize and to exclaim over Since 1903 the light of day has not fallen on it There bad been too much light of day before that In fact there had been too much of a good thing too much folding too much rolling too much handling and also too much stealing of its immortal language by n wet press copying operation resort ed to In 1820 This was tried as a means of secur lug a facsimile copy It was good enough for the copy but it was powerful bad on the original for it result ed in transferring to the copy the ink which belonged on the old copy parch ment Itself Not content with swiping its Ink the Government put tIle document up on exhibition In a nice bright light so that visitors could decipher the traces of ink which remained For thirty years the Declaration of liideiKsndance hung in the light and the longer it hung there the more necessary the light became for the Ink that was left grew paler and paler until it was hard to make out any of the signatures except the big black name of John Hancock Finally it be came evident that If anything except the parchment was to be left the do cument would have to be kept in the darks it went into retirement in the safe being brought out only upon spe cial occasions In 1903 the late John Hay then Secretary of State appointed a com mittee to examine the condition of the declaration and to recommend what should be done to prevent It The commute found it creased and bereft of its Ink but they were pleas ed to find no evidence of mold or other disintegrating agents They recommended that the document be kept dark and dry and their recent mendation has been religiously follow ed The original parchment was photo graphed in 18S3 annd again in 1903 Tliu comraltco recommended that it bo photographed again from time to I time Tho present indications are t tat It will not bo seen until perhaps another twenty years

and the intermediate stations during the Revolutionary War which so greatly facilitated the ultimate success of Washingtons army gave an account of some of the engage ments between the settlers and

they were far advanced in years their minds were unimpaired by age and they talked pleasantly of their early settling In what was then a wilderness and how near their journey of life was overCol Forbes closed his address by ad monishing the school teachers to teach the rising generation to cher ish and reverence the memory of these early settlers who not only hurled back British oppression

restaurants The fight began on the sidewalk between Rabbos restaurant and Mays saloon not fifty yards from the spot where John D Wood the labor leader and two other men were killed In a similar affray several weeks ago The three men met on the street and soon became engaged In a violent quarrel After a war of words all thre reached for their weapons and bega to shoot Woodburn fell at the firs fire a ball piercing his heart and cauS- Ing Instant death Wooten and Harmon continued to stoot at each other both being hit several time nnd Har mon lived less than half an hour after the fight begun Wooten Is dangerously wounded Wooten Is a man about 40 years of ago He was recently made chief ofI police as a result of the shakeup In the force following the election of a now City Council of which James D Wood was a leading spirit The difficulty which ended In Woods death arose out of the shift in polllce of oficers Harmon was a man T 0 yearn of ageI and had been on the police force forC many

land points out what ho thinks is the cause and prescribes what he thinks Is the meduThe writers argument is in entire of harmony with the argument used byjc that versatile genius Henry Wattersou and I suppose represents the best that j can bo said on that side of the question rhe editor seems to think a great deal of the lawlessness of the country is due to tine existence of what he calls unenforceable laws Now I admit that disobedience of the law i is lawlessness lint is it true that the violation of one law tends to the violation of all laws Men who will with impunity violate a certain lqw Ito hold other laws sacred and inviolate The editor names as nn unenforceable law the Prohibition law He argues that it is not only an unenforceable law but that it is chargeable with aI good deal of tho lawlessness of the country Now if that contention IiiI true the Prohibition law cannot be too quickly repealed But why make the Prohibition law tho scape goat for all the sins in the category Does the editor of OUR COUNTRY know a law on the statutes that Is I not flagrantly violated Does the law against theft stop It not why not call It an unenforceable 1 law charge It with all the crimes I r In the code and repeal it Does the law commandment against profanity keep any blatant blackguard wino will from taking the name of his creator In vain 1 Did the great lawgiver who came to fulfill all law repeal that law because me violate It1 The other did ho noi draw the lines more closely and say Swear not at all 1 Is the fact that men violate a given law a valid reason for repealing that law Suppose we say It is and repeal every law on the statutes which criminals brea Would not the law libraries dims n J ish visibly There can be no argument adduced for the repeal of the prohibition laws of the country which will not apply with equal force t every law on the stututtS The editors remedy is alone with his diagnosis of the disease He would enact the model Saloon League License law or something of that sort nuking the tenure of his license to depend on his obedience to said law That the average saloon keeper will violate with impunity any and ever law pertaining to his business when it is to his Interest and he dare it I think I will not be questio- ed His obedience of the law Is de tinnthtofficers of the law He obeys just u much of time law as he Is compelled to obey and no more He is not humanitarian he is not a man 1 whose bosom wills up a great and all prevadlng love for his fellowman His not his brothers keeper- It is up to the editor of OUR COUNTRY to show that the laws he is Advocating will meet with a more strict enforcement that the saloon keepe- will respect them and that they Les meet the exigencies of u very grave problemI not claim that prohibition keeps men from drinking but I do claim that it clears the moral atmosphere that it removes tho mal- odor the nausea the lawlessness that inheres In every village or hamlet where

of destruction which cull minated in the sunny flowery month of June and which carried the annual suicide rate from about 90 per million to lCCij per million a fate five times greater than that of Saxony Mr Morse the mayor of the city consulted the Board of Health and decided to stop the publication of tho decailsj of suicide in the local paper should require the employment of force He issued a proclamation on the ICth of June in which he said have consulted the Hoard of lIelhhInd if the Emporia papers comply with my request I shall have right to stop and I will stop sum anly the publication of these sul cide details under the law providing for the suppression of epidemics There dearly an epidemic in this city and although it is mental it Is none the less deadly Its contagion mummy bo

growing community needs con stantly lavger public revenues More money Is constantly required for rends schools streets sewers public buildings aud a great many other things that go to make the outfft or a progressive modern comnuuitty Even economical government COitl money It a commuahy Is progressive The question facing Kentucky Is Can the State counties torts uhd cities get the larger revenue they need to meet this Increasing dcmands by tho tax system now In use In Kcn tuckyThe Kentucky state Development AssocIation realizes the importance of this question and leas created a- Commlttee on Iaxtlon which has for some time been engaged In lnvc3t1ga ting tills question The conclusion ot this committee Is In line with the oncluslon reached In every State where n system of taxation similar to that In use In Kentucky has been followed That conclusion Is that It Is Impos sible properly to care for the grow Ing needs of the Sato and ot its counties and cities on the present plan of raising public revenues with out Unpoelug upon every class of property a burden heavier than It shoul- dbelra burden so heavy that property which can not be hidden will be un dervalued property that can be hid den will be concealed and property that can easily bo moved will leave the SLsat- eThe system by which Kentucky rm ses all Its public revenues State coun ty and municipal Is the system commonly in use everywhero fifty years ago but which has now been abandoned In whole or In part by- r prosperous and progressive States and which other S lites are preparing to abandon for ntothods better udalled to the new forms of property that have come Into existence during re cent years and better adapted to meeting the severe competition that exists between States In the effort to attract new business entesprises The averJge tux rate Including all taxes In cities of the second class In Kentucky Is about 270 on each one hundred dollars of property In clUes Tr ot the third class It Is about 2fi7 In ctties of the fourth class It Is 2li und even In the small townE in the fifth class It Is 210 Manifestly such tax rotes are not conducive to development ot the coin munlty It Is equally manifest that the public revenues are none to large but that on the contrary they should be larger to prorido wany ot 1 things absolutely needed In a progres sive community How shall these things be provided under our present system which leaves us nothing to do but to pile an additional rate of taxation on a rate already too high with the certainty that still moor taxpayers will be drIven Into evasion or plain perjury In order to escape their taxes It le possible to raise these revenues by a different system wlch less hardshlp It is possible to meet not only all present demands but all uCture- demalids If wo Will but Instttute a system of taxation better adapted to the varIng capacity of different class OS of property and so arronged that millions of dollars of property that now escapes taxation will be brought upon the assessment rolls while the unjust burden that now rests upon real estate will bo relieved There is n reW field of special taxes that entulk has not tried und can not try with Its tax laws In their present condition There are success ful plans of separating the sources of revenues so that the burden maybe none to heavy on any particular lass of property and the aggregate returns larger Every man pays taxes whether ho is ua the assessment lists or not it reaches him some way Everyman is therefore vitally concerned In hav ing In Kentucky the best tux syStem that can he solved from the expert once of men It Is In fact tied to the worsta system that has been de Quncedby ono tax commission after another In nearly every Staten the Union as wholly unfitted to modern

Saved The Frankfort News says Harry Or chard the human fiend who admitted killing so many men and who charged that the heads of the Western Federation of Miners Haywood Moyer and Pettibone had prompted him to many of hU crimes will never be hanged according to Clarence Darrow who was in Frankfort last Saturday to get some papery bearing on the murder of Wil liam Goebol Mr Darrow represented Haywood and Pettiboue in the long trials at ibis Idaho and is familiar with the cases- I charged during the trail that Or crard would never be hanged but that he would bo allowed to live and that a deal had been made with him by which ho was to escape capital punishment in return for testifying against Pettibone and Haywood said Mr Darrow This was denied by the attorneys for the prosecution and they Insisted that this was not true They said Orchard would be hanged as soon as the trials were over He has not been hanged and will not be in my opinion Ho was to have been hanged some time ago and now they say he will be hanged on July 1 but I believe that his sentence will be commuted again and that he will go o prison for life There are murder charges against Orchard In several States and there has been some talk of trying to get at him In other States so that he can be hanged as he so richly deserves but to get him in any other State he would have to be pardoned in Idaho and that may be done Hows This Wo offer One Hundred Dollars Re ward for any case of Catarrh that cannot be cured by Halls Catarrh Cure F J CHENEY CO Toledo O We the undersigned have known F J Cheney for the last
