InclusUa, fnu will and the debate on this etibjact Mr. Tawnay of Minnesota, Mr. Bmllh of Iowa, Mr Rherley of Kentucky, and Mr. KlliferaM of New Tork, appear In thla debate as tha menial rhnmnlnna of tha provision referred to, Mesira. Tar- ons, iiennet and Drlaroll were tha lead-e- e of those who oppoid lha adoption of thai amendme.ntand upheld the rlarht of the government to use tha moat efficient mesne ponlhla In order to detect criminals and lo prevent and punish crime. Tha amendment wae carried In tha committee ef lha whole, where no volee of lha Individual members are recorded, eo I am unable lo discriminate by mentioning tha members who voted for and the members who voted agslnit tha provision, but lla piaasie. the journal records, was greeted with applause. I am well aware, however, that In any ease of thla kind many members who have no particular knowledge of the point at laiue. era con tent simply to follow tha lead of the committee which had considered the mat ter, and I have no doubt that many mem bars of Ilia houaa simply followed the lead of Meaars.

In which I stmpty anoaa or ina anion or the houaa aa a whola, and aa apparently there is a de. aire Mint I aliould thus dlsrrlmtnste, I will state that I think tho responsibility rested on tha committee on appropriations, under tha lead of the members whom I have mentioned. "Now aa to lha request of tha consreaa that I give tha evidence for my statement that the chief argument In favor of lira provision was that the congrrae- men nld not themeelvee wish lo ba d by secret service men. "The part of the Congressional Record to which I have referred above entirely supports this statement. Two distinct tines of argument were followed In tha debate. One concerned lha question whether the law warranted tha employment of the secret service In departments other than the treasury, and this did not touch Ihe merits of the service In the least. The other Una of argument went to tha merits of the service, whether lawfully or unlawfully employed, and hero the chief If not the only argument used waa that tha service should be cut down and reairlcled because Its members had 'shsdowed' or Investigated members of congress nnd other nfflrers of the government. If we examine the. debate In detail It appears that most of what was urged In fator of the amendment took the form of the simple statement that the committee held that there had been a violation of law' br the use of the secret service for other purposes than suppressing counterfeiting (and one or two other matter which can be disregarded), and that such Isnguage was now to bo used as would effectually prevent all such 'violation rf law' hereafter. Mr Tawney, for Instance, si)' a 'It was for the purpose ef atopplng Ihe use of this service In every possible way by the drparlinenta of the government that this protlslon was Inserted', and Mr Hmlth says: 'Now, that wss the only way In which any limitation could be put upon the activities of the secret service. il Htsgerald followed In the nma vein, and by far the largest p.irt of the argument against ths employment of the secret service was confined lo the statement that It was In 'violation of law ' Of course, such a statement Is pot In any way nn argument In favor of Ihe Justice of Ihe provision. It Is not an argument for the provision at all. It la a. statement of what the gentle" simply men making It conceive to have been the n secret-service Invee-ttgsti- - f !. Regarding Restrictions of ' r' ' the Secret 8ervlce. 'There was both by Implication and direct atatriuwit thai assertion that It wns tha law, and ought to be the law, that the secret service should onlr be used to aupprrsa counterfeiting: anj that the Uw should be made more rljld than ever In this respect. "Incidentally I may say that In my jtidgment there Is ample legal authority for the statement that thla appropriation law to which rrference was made Imposes no restrictions whatever upon Ihe use of the secret service men, but relate! solely to the expenditure ef the money appropriated. Mr. Tawney In tha debate alated that ha had In hla pos session 'u letter from (he secretary of Ihe treasury received a few days ago' In which the secretary of the treasury 'himself admits that the provisions under which the appropriation tins been made have been violated year after year for a number of years In his own department.' I append herewith aa appendix A, the latter referred to, It makes no such sdrnls-sloas that which Mr. Tawney alleges. It contains on the contrary, na you will see by reading it, an 'emphatic protest sgalnit any such abridgment of the rights dslegated to tho secretary of the treusury by existing law,' and concludes by asserting that ho 'Is qulle within hie rights 'In thus employing Ihe service of these agents and that the proposed modiwhich Mr. Tawney succeeded fication In carrying through would be 'distinctly lo the advantage of violators of criminal statutes of the United Stales.' I call attention to the fact that In thla letter of Secretary Cortelynu lo Mr. Tawney, aa In my letter lo the speaker quoted below, the explicit statement Is made that tha proposed change will be for the benefit of the criminals, a statement which I simply reiterated In publlo form In my message to the congress this year, and which Is also ot)tslnrd In effect In the report of the secretary of the treasury to the congress. 'A careful reading of the Congressional Itecord will also show that pracllcully tho only arguments advanced In favor of tho limitation proposed by Mr. Tawney's committee, beyond whut may be supposed to be contained by Implication In certain sentences aa to 'abuses' which were nut specified, were those contained In the repeated statements of Mr. tiherley. n .y " '"" - I'.

The troops were sent by Gov. Pat terson for a twofold purpose. They were to protect the lives of the citi zens against any tulher outrages ot a similar nature and to conduct a militiay investigation of the murder. This latter purpose was not re vealed, arid when the first wholesale arrests were made it dawned upon the hill and lake men what they really came for. First ten, then twenty, then thirty and then fifty were arrested. This number, grew and grew until there was a tolal of 117 prisoners held in the guard tents. The militlary court of inquiry, with Gov. Patterson and MaJ. Holmes directing operations, was in full swing. The wheat was separated from the chaff. Some of the prisoners were sent to Memphis for including Frank Fehringer, Hirschell Hocc and Wad Morris, Nine were sent to Nashville and there death claimed two of them. Others were taken to Dyersburg and still others, the majority of them, were taken to Union City and confined in the mili tary barracks, established near the court house. For thirty days the grand jury was in session. The special term of court, which was convened on the Monday following the murder, was attacked in writs of habeas corpus by the counsel for the night riders. The state delayed Ihe trail, refused to show its hand prematurely and finally had all of the night riders reindicted by a grand jury, about which there could be no question of legality raised. The state annouced ready for trial the early part of December, and af ter the preliminary skirmishing for jurymen, the box was tilled on JJec 17. A mine had been exploded under the defense, when the court ruled it was not entitled to but twenty-fou- r challenges, instead of 196, as when the defense's counsel challenged thev did not designate to which one of the eight defendants the challenge was to be charged, it was charged to all of them. Thus in reality each one of the de percmp fondants had his twenty-fou- r tory challenges. The trial, the exciting scenes, the sensational evidence and the thrill ing sidelights, are still too fresh in the minds ol every one tor a rehearing now. And now comes the conviction as a climax to it all. safe-keepin- gflaaaaaaar ourrency KicliAiige for clcarliucs Other Items carried as cash Furniture and Fixture Fund to pay taxes tJurrent expenses last quar- OW Due from Truit companies llnnkliiK llnu.e and hot , other ItenlKstate MorKraKea II.

The i)0 cause of this creepy sensation is the ooo ouo result of a fire which occured four o ui months and a half ago, when the warehouse of Ledford Si Randle and the Hickman Grocery Co. were de stroyed. The cinders under the railroad track caught fire at that time and have burned slowly every since. Just how much fire may be under the track no one knows, but the iength of time it has continued to burn is something unsual. The railroad company may yet be forced to quench this subterranean furnace to save their ties and avoid further danger of a greater conflagration.

An Owensboro man was sentenced a year in the penitentiary for stealing several turkeys.

The capital stock of the Hickman banks amounts to $70,000, the Ful-to- n banks $248,000. Every bank in the county shows a healthy gain during the past year. No county has a more clever set of banker than Fulton county. It is to their genercusity and sound business principles that the continued increase may be attributed. This county has only had one bank failure in its history, and this happened years ago. During the panic of 1907-190- 8, the banks of Fulton county looked after their patrons in better shape than any other banks in this part of the state ; and comparatively, their embarassment was very slight. The five handsome bank cashiers of the county are : C. E. Rice, City National. R. M. Chowning, First National. J. V. Hefley, The Farmers. W. C. Reed, Hickman Bank. J. A.

PENSION (T-- - Cfl WHERE shall the Inaugural ball bo This is tho question which is agttat-In- s the minds ot the Inaugural and society folks .here. For many years this bas been tho crown-ln- c feature of tho installation Into office of a new president, but four years ago eongrcsi reluctantly gave Its consent to the use of tho pension office building and followed this action up .by adopting a resolution that the building" should not ngoln 'bo put, in 'disorder for sdeh 'a purpose. ' Properly to tfrcparc' thd' structuro fori tbo 'ball tmeans the removal from the great court ot millions ot valuable records, besides the almost complete ccspatlon of tho government business for no lees than 20 days by the army of clerks who dally pass upon pension cases. com-raitte- o Pension Commissioner Warner says tho pay ot employes during that period, wltbtn which they would bo In enforced ldlen"ss, aggregates J95,-47and It would mean Just that much cost to the government. He says that the work ot the offtco will bo put back, and that damage that cannot bo estimated Invariably n follows everj-- occupancy of tho offlco for the Inaugural ball. Tbcro.Is already on foot, however, a movement to utilize, tho, building as in tho past for tho ball ad the house committee on the District ot Columbia after, tho holidays will bring In a resolution to that end. Unrcss tho temper of congress has undergono a radical change In the last four years, tha resolution will meet with defeat. Tho 'only other building; in tbo city whero the ball could be held is the new national museum, now ncarlng completion, but this structure, because of the absence ota court such as tbo pension building has, would lessen the brilliancy ot the function by confining tho guests to tbo corridors. Tho receipts from the inaugural ball in the past have Tone toward paying the expenses ot tho inauguration. that President Roosevelt's Elaborate "Explanations" Unfortunately Do Not Explain Much to Investigate and Ascertain. If there .existed no reason for counseling or demanding nn official Inquiry Into tho purchase of the Panama canal beforo Mr. Roosevelt explained tho matter so elaborately and painfully, a good many do exist now. No president has ever occupied such a position before the people that by sweeping denial he could removo a popular Impression or by general Indorsement create ono. Certain declarations ot Mr. Boose-vel- t, based on what must have been assumptions, aro bowled over instantly by explanations of their character. For Instanco, Mr. Roosevelt assumed that Charles P. Taft was cbsrged with some compromising connection with the purchaso of tha canhh a&4 that o tbo chargo was registered for h3 of impugning the honesty of tha president-elect- . The New York World dismisses that matter by saying it never made such n charge and gladly printed Charles P. Taft's denial. Of the allegations as to Douglas Robinson, it says tho samo thing, but that it printed no personal denial from him It could not secure It. As a matter of fact, no acquaintance of cither of theso men ever Indulged a moment's suspicion of their guilt. Tbo president simply sets up a man of straw to knock over and wait for the applause. He has neither a logical nor a legal mind, nor an adequate com prehension ot tho valtio of facts or tho method to be followed In their mar shaling. In his palpable effort ta prove an Investigation unnecessary, ha has proved that one is mure necessary than over. The American people aro not going lo accept blindly Mr. Roosevelt's asser tion that "wo did not havo anything to do with tho distribution of a dollar of tho 340,000,000 we. paid as regards any stockholder or bondholder ot tho French company" as final and' conclusive, nor is the submission of a list of thp names ot tho 6,000 stockholders of tho new Panama canal company that they wcro either tho Immediate or ultimate recipients of the money, or any part of It. Nor aro we obligated to consider tbo assertlo'n that wo wanted tbo canal and got It nt tho prlco agreed upon as final evldenco that the transaction was honest from Inception to culmination nnd that is' not to say that any of tho otllclals who -onductcd the negotiations on behalf-.f'thgovcrimcnt were Involved in any wrojigdc-Jng- . It Is also pertinent to njmark that Mr. Roo9tfvet' dictum as to our total lack of concern over tho rotations of Mr. WUJIam Nclsoft Cromwojl with the French companies Is hot final. Wo aro very much, concerned about that if Mr. Cromwell conspired, or deceived, or secured a high appraisal, or addod soaio millions to the-- purcha&u prlee of his own volition, or promoted, ft resolution with or without tho sanction "or knowledge of this government that titlo might bo perfected to tho properties tho subject ot purchaso.

Significant Tariff Testimony. It Is a fact of tho utmost nractlral Importance, though the nolltlc.il tariff makers do not seem to realize it, that tho strongest demands for downward revision of tho tarlft havo coma from representative manufacturers. Th houso committee has perhaps been toe buy to ponder and asdmllato tbo testimony of the wltneasc whn given It tho most valuablo Information, but there are Indications that mm at tho committeemen nre.unabto to rid themselves of Uio "political" view of tho question.
