Circuit Court GOES INTO EFFECTSNEXT SUNDAY The new election law which is to BU penwd the now famous Goebel electio- ht l w will go into effect next Sunday of Under the new law the members of the on state election board are selected on tho recommendation of each of tho two big parties The law provides that these two commissioners shall be appointe- by thtygovernor of the state from names dctigMffed in writing If any are so designated by each of the state central committees of the two political parties that polled the largest vote at tho prece ding election The third member of the board is to be the clerk of the conr of cppMls at present Sam J Shackel fordThe Democratic state central commit tee at its meeting at Covington several weeks back recommended to Governor Beckham that C B Poyntz of Mays Ville be appointed as its representative on the state board The Republicans have so far taken no action toward selecting J their representative on the state board The law provides that the state election commissioners shall be appointed annually in July but as the present commissioners terms expire with the old law it is likely that the governor will appoint at once IT GIRDLES

PREDICTION Governor Pingree of Michigan allows his temperament to carry him to un warranted extremes when in his fare well message to the Michigan State Legislatere he predicts that unless the present system of inequality obtaining in American Government is changed in less than a quarter of a century there will be a bloody revolution in this great country of ours There is not the remotest danger of a bloody revolution in this country if sane Americanism continues to prevail to overcome a certain tendency toward anarchy inherited trom European condi tions which are nonexistent in the Uni ted States Certain evils do exist ther is no denying The Republican party has surrendered itself to the of the trusts and the syndicates and there is too much of legislation for th benefit of the few at tho sacrifice of the many But it is the many who still rnle in this country and who have the power at any time to overthrow a party which betrays the people hI I SIlIlIBI148 B4 v HlCKMAN KENTUCKY t

rvinterdayirheliwe arc othl ashing out arms around us to Ikeep oug thumbs from freezing we think Y of the warm spring day that will come or in the dark winter night we look up and we see time northern lights the windows of Heaven il lumined by some great victory just so we look up from the night of suf fering and sorrow and wretchedness in our cities and we see a light streaming through front the other side and we know we are on the way to morning more than that on the way to a morning without clouds I want you to understand all you who are toiling for Christ that the castles of sin are all going to be captured The victory for Christ in these great towns is going to be so complete that not a tuna on earth or an angel in Heaven or a devil in hell will dispute it How do I know 1 know it just as certainly as God lives and Jthat this is holy truth The old Bible is full of it The nation is to be saved It makes a great difference with you and with me whether we are toiling on toward a defeat or toiling on toward a victory Now in this municipal elevation of which I speak 1 have to remark there will be greater financial prosperity than our cities have ever seen Some people teem to have a morbid idea of the millennium and they think when tthe better time comes to our cities and the world people will give their time up to psalm singing and the re- lating1 of their religious experienced andas all social life will 1 there will be no hilarity and us all business will be purified there will be no enterprise There is no ground for such an absurd anticipation In the 1 time of which I speak where now one 1 fortune is made there will be a hundred fortunes made We all know 1 business prosperity depends upon con 1 fidence between matt and mat Now when that tune comes of which I speak and all double dealing all dishonesty 1 and all fraud are gone out of commercialcircles thorough confidence will be established and there will be better business done and 1 larger fortunes gathered and mightier successes achieved The great business disasters of thisI country have come from the work of godless speculators and infamous stock gamblers The great foe to 1 business is crime When the right shall have hurled hick the wrong anjj shall have purified the commercial code and shall have thundered down i fraudulent establishments and shallj 1 have put into the hands of honestt men the keys of business blessed tin I for the bargain makers lun not imaking a guess I am telling youl Gods eternal truth In that better time also coming to these cities the churches of Christ willI be more numerous and they will be ilarger and theywill be more devoted to the service of Jesus Christ and they will accomplish greater influ o jnctjs for good NOW it is often th cajp lhaichnrclinkae hv16usfof itcli other mid denominations collide withI each other and even ministers of I Christ sometimes forget the bond o brotherhood but in the time of whichI I speak while there will be just a ninny differences of opinion as there are now there will be no acerbity no hypercriticism no exclusiveness In our great cities time churches ar not today large enough to hold more than a fourth of the population Thi churches that are built comparative Ily few of them are fully occupied The average attendance in the churches o the United States today is not 400 Now in 1time glorious time of which j speak there are going to be vast churches and they arc going to be allI throngedwith worshipers Oh what rousing songs they will sing Ohu what earnest sermons they will preach j Oh what fervent prayers they will of fer Now in our time what is calledj a fashionable church is a place where a few people havingattended very carefully 0 to their toilet come and sit down they do not want to be crowded they like a whole scat to themselves and then if they have any time left from thinking of their store and from examining the style of the hat in front tof them tthey sit and listen to a ser mon warranted to hit no mans sins linen to music which is renderedandl by a choir warranted to sing tune- stint nobody knows And then after an hour and a half of indolentl yawning they go home refreshed Every man feels better that he has had a sleep In many of the churches of Christ fin our day the music is simply a mockery I have not a euHvated ear nor a culivai ted voice yet no man can do my singing for me I have nothing to say against artistic music The two dollars or fire dollars 1 pay tto hear one of the great queens of song is a good investment But when the people assemble in religions convocation and the hymn i read and the angels of God step from their throne to catch the music on their wings do not let us drive them away bynur indifference Mr lecrof England had a theory

bubonic plague made its appearance the cause f its sprelll antI means to prevent iinfection from it has been the study scientific men all over thu world One theory has been tolerably thor oughly established and this iis that the ordinary ship rat has been and is the chief factor in the spread of the infection says the St Louis Globe Democrat SWhcu the disease made its appearance in Honolulu and while efforts Were being made to stamp it out this fact was recognized and strict meas ures were employed to guard against the transfer of rats from ships which had touched at infected ports to the islandNow the attention of the people of the United States is directed to time coast cities of Brazil where the disease has been reported Our close commercial relations with that coun try particularly in the importation of great quantities of coffee make an absolutely close quarantine against the ports almost an impossibility To devise and put in force a xystem of careful disinfection the Louisiana state board of health has promulgated regulations governing the unloading of coffee ships from the suspected South American ports which almost from first to last are aimed against the rat The board proceeded in framing the rules on the theory that the rat family is the medium of in fectian from plaguestricken ports mont to be feared and these are the regulations which were evolved as a result of this theory Coffee ships from infected ports shall he thoroughly disinfected at the quarantine station and detained there five days being disinfected on the fourth dooThe vessel may then Como to the city and anchor 100 feet from the wharf it being calculated that a rat which tried to swim this distance would drown After daylight the vessel may + e hauled in to within not less than 4C foot of her wharf by means of haws ers each of which shall be provided with a system of metnl funnels and disks to prevent the passage of rats These funnels must be of tin zinc or galvanized iron with a diameter of not less than 20 indies and must immure sharp serrated edges and niu t be hinged to permit of close adaptation to the hawsers The metal disks must be of the same material anti must also be fitted with sharp edges When within 45 feet of the wharf the regulations provide that stagings shall be placed across which the un loading must be done While unload ing is going on the regulations pro aide pmen withI Rhotguns shall watcvthe stagings and holds for rats tad shall kill all rats on sight The pan in charge must also keep menuvUh shotguns in skiffs on each side of the vessel lest the unfortu nate animals should attempt to escape by jumping overboard Not later than sunset each day the hawsers must hehauled on board and the ves sel drain off to her anchorage The rules significantly state that rubber gloves shall be used in handling dead rats and that dead rats shall be cremated The secretary of the board was busilyengaged in seeing the agents of coffee ships and securing their acquiescence in the regulations It is provided that all the expenses of the quarantine are to be borne by the yes scl Thft rules arc effective at once Thci publication caused a great deal of comment especially the portions referring to rats which caused as muchlaughter as criticism The board says that the rat is the most dangerous factor an the spread of the plague and that

FLOURISHING omlitiir and MnnopoJIo titnInd Put Iniler the Protection AY nlpnitHeau TIre republican national platform contained a plank asserting that we condemn all conspiracies and combi nations intended to restrict business to create monopolies to limit produc tion or to control prices and favor such legislationI as will effectively re strain and prevent all such abuses protect and promote competition and secure the rights of producers labor en and all who are engaged in in dustry and commerce Upon the platform containing the plank tho re publican party was continued in full control of time government in all itdepartments The plate glass trust under the protection of the Dingley tariff arbi I trarily raised prices to a point fur above the rates existing before it went into effect to w high a point iit seems that some dealers found it profitable to import certain graders of foreign glas even with the heavy duty of the present tariff The trust jpromptly took steps to stop this An order was recently issued to all deal I ers in window glass that they must cease h importing on their own account or buying any imported glass unless ifrom agents belonging to the trust Any customer of the trust violating lthis order is to be boycotted and Use irebate of fire per cent paid to the customers of the trust on their purchases for a year is to be cut off Here would seem to be a clear case of combination to restrict business create monopolies and control prices calling for such legislation as will effectively restrain and prevent all such abuHes That is the way the Philadelphia members of the ipaints oils and window glass trade iregarded it and when the federal industrial commission began its sit 1 tings in Philadelphia some days ago they went before it with their griev ances and asked relief They told the commission among other things that whereas a 12x60 iinch light formerly cost 75 cents iti now costs SlSS time 24xfiO size was 240 a light and now it is C the 24x S4I I size which cost 455 about three years ago now costs 11 a light These are the prices charged by the trust and enforced by a complete lboycott on any purchaser who buys outside of the trust Tho paint men thought this a legitimate case for in terference by legislation and what they asked was that time tariff on for eign glass be so reduced as to nmko open competition on all grades possi
