Antl-Sloon The direct connection between good roads and the value of farm lands is shown in a striking manner in Bulletin No. 38 of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This Bulletin gives the results of an investigation by the Office of Public Roads of that Department relating to public road mileage, revenues, Improved roads, and expenditures in the United States in the year 1904, and the information contained therein is of great importance in connection with the movement on behalf of the systematic improvement of the public highways. The returns from various States show that in nearly every case the States hav'r lie highest percentage nt Improved roads have the largest population per mile of road, thus showing that better roads are a powerful factor in enccuraging the settlement of unused lands, especially in sparsely populated sections of the country. Good roads are also an important influence in retaining in the farming districts the desirable elements who might otherwise drift into the towns and cities. As the price of farm lands depends on their productivity, accessibility to markets, and population engaged, or desiring to engage, in agricultural pursuits, it follows that road improvement, by attracting additional settlers, and giving them better facilities for reaching their markets, directly tends to increase the values of all farm lands within the radius of the toads improved. A comparison of the percentage of improved roads of the various States shows that the average persentage of the improved roads in all States where farm land is worth less than $20.00 per acre is only 1.9 per cent, whereas in the States where the acreage value is more than $20.00, improved roads constitute an average of 9 per cent of the total mileage. While there may be minor causes of variations in the value of farm lands it Is an undoubted fact that as a general rule the higher values of certain States are largely due to their superior roads. Records on file in the Office of Public Roads show that farm lands have been known to advance in value from 50 to 500 per cent on account of the improvement of the roads connecting them with market towns. When the facts secured by the Department of Agriculture become known to the farmers of the county, and they realize that the establishment of a complete system of properly constructed public roads will have the direct effect of greatly increasing the value of their farms,' they, will be the foremost advocates of a broad, comprehensive policy of public road improvement by the Nation, States, Counties and Townships. We are glad Indeed to notice tha our city officers are putting the city's to work on the streets, instead of furnishing them a free boarding house. Its exactly right, besides being the popular policy. Marshal Dillon says now that the weather has opened up so that the streets can be worked, he will see to it that the jail birds come acrosst with street work. This will not only have a tendency to put a damper no lawlessness, but will save the city spending many dollars tor highwa improvements. law-break- that $10,000 reward that was offered C.nv between f for the capture and conviction of i SrrreHr..

Tight Will Be Mado on Inheritance Tax Steel Men Are Making Vigorous rroteeti. Washington. The Payne tariff Mil reported from the ways and means committee to the home of represents thru Thursday without change in iU original provision. The minority members of the coiuniittrc were allowed Imt twelve minutes In whleh to consider the Mil at the general meeting of the commit too. Indications arc that the Mil is not to have plain sailing through the house. Few mcmlicrs rare to express nn opinion on the Mil at the present time. It is held to be the most confusing document ever put up to them for consideration. A fight is to be made on the inheritance tax on th ground that it is double taxation. Thirty-siStates now have the law, and protests are coming in large volume urging that the burden Inheritances now carry are sufficiently onerous. There is to bo an attempt made to Include an Income tax provision in tlie bill. The greatest protest is over free hides and the cuts in timber, wool and sugar. Representatives of these Industries are here in force. Should the movement assume definite shape a party caucus will be called by the Republican leaders, to break the combination. Several Texas Democrats show a willingness to join in this movement in the Interest of a tax on hides. Western coal interests arc up in arms over the coal schedules and the Pennsyl-vanlan- s are restless under the cut and the possibility of free Canadian coal. With this import duty removed Canadian coal wlll enter into active competition with the output of American mines. The grain interests of the West are grain schedules' as afalarmed ovcr-'thfected by the drawback provision of the bill. Steel men are protesting against the general reduction in steel schedules and free Iron ore. The steel trust is not represented in the lobby. It owns large ore ranges in Cuba. Charles M. Schwab also has heavy ore properties in Cuba. The smaller independent men are making the complaint. w FIX TARIFF, THEN QUIT OKLAHOMA TO HAVE BOOZE THIS IS ADVICE TO CONGRESS BY PRESIDENT. Deficit of $100,000,000 Expected by July 1, and Immediate) Action Is Necessary. Washington. Resident Taft sent his tariff message to Congress at noon tofor shortday. It is a ness. The message follows, in full: "To the Senate and House of Repre sentatives: I convened Congress in thU extra session in order to enable it to give immediate consideration to the revision of the Dingley tariff act. Conditions affecting production, man ufacture nnd business generally have so changed in the last twelve years as to require a readjustment and revision of the import duties imposed by that act. 'More than this, the present tariff act, with the other sources of govern ment revenue, docs not furnish income enough to pay the authorized expend!- ures. 'By July 1, next, the excess of ex penses over 'receipts for the enrrent fiscal year.; will equal $100,000,000. The successful party in the late election is pledged to a revision of the tariff. The country and the. business community, especially, expect It. , fl "The prospect of a change in the rates of import duties always causes a suspension or halt In, buslnessbepiuse of the uncertainty as to the changes to bo made and their effect It is therefore of .tho highest im portance that the new bill s'jould be agreed upon and passed with as much speed as jiosslblc, consistent with its due and thorough consideration. For these reasons, I have" deemed tho present to be an extraordinary' occasion, within the meaning of the constitution, uttifying and requiring the calling of an extra session. 'In ray inaugural address, I stated in summary way the principles upon which, in my judgment, the revision of the tariff should proceed, and indicated at least one new-- sourco of revenue that might be properly resorted to in order to avoid a future deficit. It in not necessary for me to repeat what I then wild. "I venture to suggest that the vital business interests of the country require that the attention of tho Congress In this session ba chiefly devoted to the consideration of the new tariff bill, and that the less time given to other subjects' of legislation in this session the better for the country. "WILLIAM H. TAFT. record-breaker State Supreme Court Holds Dispensary Law Not Repealed. Guthrie, Okla, The legislature's, failure to act upon the liquor dispensary question will probably result in reopen ing of State- and local liquor agencies, although upon this point iov. Haskell has made no statement. Following the general election,- - the governor, by proclamation, closed the agencies, announcing that the people's vote had been against the system. Hut on an appeal being taken to the, Supreme Court on a test rase for the sale of alcohol, that tribunal held that" the IHII lips law in this respect had not;ben rcjiealed. The Legislature appropriated $13,000 annually for the enforcement of Statewide prohibition ; passed an act making it a felony to sell or give liquor to an Insane person, habitual drunkard or minor, and killed a resolution which sought to amend the constitution jby substituting local option for prohibition. x "LIAR" MEANS FIGHT. Georgia Court Decides It to B Breach of Peaco. Atlanta, Ga.To call a man a liar.ln the State of Georgia is a breach of the peace and means a fight, declares the Stnte Court of Appeals. The lower court' which refused, damages to W. M. ltum-sewho sued W. A. Dullard for $100 damages for breach of the jieace for calling him a liar, is reversed, the opinion by Judge Powell concluding: "Being to the manner born, the judge of this court takes judicial cognizance, of the fart that in Georgia to call a man a liar, even without threatening him with a weapon, most generally means a fight. There may "be exceptions to this rule, but they are rare exotics and find little nourishment on Georgia soil and under Southern skies." d ' LOUISVILLE DEPOT BURNED Re- Effort Made to Have New Depot place Structure Destroyed. Louisville, Ky. Ily thc destruction at a loss of $400,000 of the union depot, the local terminal for five of the country's chief railroads, Louisville will probably benefit by a new union station. This was decided upon by the Commercial Cluf half an hour after the building was a mass of smoking embers and debris. Crossed wires in the attic are charged with the responsibility for the blaze. Chief Clerk W. C. Roach to Superin-tendeEgan of the Illinois Central fell through a skylight in an ellort to and was badly injured. All the occupants escaped unhurt.

C, which was waged over the selection of Dr. Win. I). Crurn, was terminated Tuesday by the appointment by President Taft of W. Durant, Jr., for the position. Mr, Durant is a whito man and It Is presumed his nomination will be confirmed in due course of time. Cruin's nomination had been before the Senate ut each session since January 5, 1003. While he had been In office all this time, ho was never but once confirmed by tho took Senate. The one confirmation Congress.

Harriman has in mind a scheme to bring about a mutual under standing In regard to traffic arrangements between all the railroads of the country and a uniformity of rates that will be generally to the benefit of the stockholders, and that the conference, which is to be held at Pasadena whlls Mr. Harriman Is here, will be concerned more or less with the plan. Mr. Iiarrinisn evidently expects that congress, at the special session, wilt make some amendments to the laws governing the interstate commerce commission's work, which would permit of the merger. Mr. Harriman was asked "How soon do you expect the railroadi to resume work on the Improvements that were contemplated before the public." "You may say," ho answered, "that as soon as an amendment is passed giving the interstate commerce commission power to allow the railroads to enter into a mutual agreement that is, permitting the strong roads to extend their credit and protection over the weaker roads-j- ust so soon will long contemplated improvements lie rushed through to completion."

It makes its appearance about midnight on the eastern horizon, is exceedingly bright, standing out in bold relief from all other stars. This is the only star in all the heavens which is named or even supposed to be a Christian name, and is supposed to be the star which appeared to Three Wise Men from the East and which guided them to the stable in Bethlehem, where the infant Jesus was born. The star comes within our vision every 500 years, its last appearance being recorded in 1408. It will be visible during most of the coming year and from every habitable part of the earth. A splendid view of the star can be had any time between midnight and 3 o'clock a m.

On these conditions the government transports them, gives them" when an outfit, and a thoy land at Noumea. Their marriages are arranged for them by tho governor of the colony, who has a election of convicts ready for them to choose from; and each girl may consult hei own fancy within certain limits, for the proportion of marriageable men to women is about three to one.

WORTHY OF HIS METAL. If there is anything we love, its a gossip monger; and evidently the Courier has a reader or two who make it their business once a week to call attention to our and typographical errors. We admit that we are not Infallible like this individual who is always straining to pick the mote from his brother's eye. If folks have any criticism or suggestions to make about the Courier, we would prefer that they come to us with it though we know this is contrary to the ways of a sanctimonious wag who parades in the purple and fine linen of There is too much of this pernicious, malignant flaw- picking and tattling in Hickman, for gossip is one of the popular crimes that has caused more sorrow in life than murdef. It is assasination of reputations. It runs the cowardly gamut from mere Ignorant, Imperii- short-comin- nent intrusion .into the lives of othe rs to malicious slander. If facts do not exist it creates them, if they be; innocent it transforms them into evidence ot black guilt by ingenious perversion. In interpretation it al- -' ways chooses the worse of two possible motives. It constitutes itself a secret court of inquisition that decides on the fate of the victim in his absence when he has no chance to speak in his own behalf. It is a conspiracy of wrong, wherein the pot often calls the kettle black. If you care to excoriate the Courier, get on with both feet, but don't sneak around and tell the other fellow that we are not giving him a square deal and that you think so and so. Come to us.

Tho companies offered to Insure tho places at premiums vary' log from 12.65 to (4.25. allowing ten per cent discount. This would have cost the 250 settlors the prlco of about two houses a year. The govornmcnt program provides for tho building of 500 new houses within tho next two years. This will bring the total number up to 760 houses. According to the departmen tal estimates. If the govoroment wore to accept the Insurance companies' terms It would cover the cost of six houses a year In Insuring this num ber.

We do not hesitate to say that it is absolutely impossible for a woman to become the confidant and friend of her children unless she weekly nay, daily spends some short lime alone with each. Only in this way can each child feel the security of his or her ownership of (hat precious mother.
