The Lutin took to the deep under plungingshe could easily remain submerged tor ten hours but when night approached and nothing was heard from her there Was consternation among naval men hero and two

ktits and a knots submerged Her engines were operated by electricity She was built by Rochforts In 1901 Suffered Similar Fate It now appears certain according to late news received that the crew of

Instruction DLVLS MILDLY WITH OPPONENT Corrects Misrepresentations In a Most Emphatic WayHe Also Presents Remarkably Strong Facts In Sup port of His Candidacy To the Democrats of Kentucky A most unexpected and unjust charge has been brought cjainst me by my opponent In the race for super intendent of public Instruct on If the charge were true it should feat me If it is false the Democrat of Kentucky should know it in jrder that justice my be done to nra The charge Is that I am unfriendly to the new state normal chools He says In a letter to county superintendents of schools Mr Gullion Is strongly endorsed by those who have fought statrorn schools From that text hj argues that this contest becomes a fight between the advo cates of stite normal schools on one side and the enemies of those institu E A GULLION tlons on the other His animus Is so apparent that I need not argue the matter I simply place alongside his ridiculous and impotent charge the following card and fairminded Democrats may do the rest A CARD To Whom it May Concern Mr E A Gullion spent a great deal of time at Frankfort during the legis lative session of 19056 and took an active interest in school legislation being especially desirous of passing the normal school bill He his for a number of years been a strong factor in educational progress Thij September 20 11OG W P TH RNE i S E DEHAVEN H K BOURNE I heartily concur in the above JAS H FUQUA Superintendent Public Instruction Frankfort Ky Sept 21 1906 If other proof than that of the lieu tenant governor Senator DeHaven Representative Bourne and the dis tinguished superintendent of public instruction is required it shall be furnished Who oppose the state nor mals They cannot be found The bill creating them passed unanimously and as shown above I did all in my power to promote its passage having been at Frankfort more than 50 days during the 10day session of the gen eral assembly and in constant contact with the senators and representatives Not to have supported the normal school measure would have been to stultify my entire record for I have advocated normal schools in my news paper and before the Kentucky Edu cational association for more than 20 yearsIn all the literature I have sent out I have pledged myself to the normal schools in the following language- It shall be my highest and most cherished ambition to foster and develop the states normal schools until they shall be adequate for all and good enough for the bestunsur passed by those of any other state That language should have been plain enough to my opponent to have prevented a falsification of my position on normal schools As to Character- In the same letter to superinten dents the gentleman asks for an opportunity to defend himself against any aspersion of his character that anyone might make If I have to win this race by attacking his character then I will lose the race for I would scorn to do such a thing Nor will any true friend of mine offend in that particular However it is the privi lege and the duty of every Democrat to investigate the character and com votingNot typthatand competent gentleman who been in the service of the state hasI years at a high salary when on eleventhhourthe race If there iany reason why this well paid official of 25 years and who never has to beg for lucrative positions should be preferred over the

ties of the office well and all say he has earned and merits promotion But this race is not a popularity contest beItendent whose duties are widely dif ferent from those of a clerk and very much more difficult A machine can add a column of figures Efficient su perintendents are the exception Evidence of Fitness- I have taught in schools ranging from the common school in the beech woods to the lower classes in one of our leading colleges have taught in high school and have been an instruc tor in county normals For more than 20 years I have been attending the State Teachers associa tion and la 1896 was president of that honorable body The published proceedings and addresses show that I was active in all movements for the betterment of public schools originat ing some of them This is particularly true as to the agitation for normal schools longer school terms better school houses modern equipment etc As chairman of a committee ap- poInted by the Kentucky Educational associationIpressed upon the assembly divers amendments looking to those ends and procured their passage It Is not arrogating too much to myself to say that I have spent more time before the Kentucky leg islature in promoting common school legislation than any other private cit izen It was a labor of love on my part for never did I ask and never was paid a cent for my expenses or for the sacrifice of my time that I madeI the author of the plan by which shortterm schools were abol ished and wrote the amendment that effectuated the plan I was also large ly instrumental IB bringing about most of the other beneficial changes that have been made in the school lawsIf the people make me their next state superintendent I shall devote whatever talent and energy I have to the great work in which are centered the dearest interests of the children and of the commonwealth guaranteeing that we shall materially Lengthen our cords and strengthen our stakes educationallyThe I have made are offered to

Frankfort Tuesday President Charles A Peibody of the Mutual Life Insur ance Company of New York ap peared and answered charges against his administration resulting from the recent dismissal of Col Biscoe Hindman as agent for Ken tucky He defended the removal- of the latter by stating that no agent could represent the company in getting new business and at the same time be hostile to its manage ment Col Hindmanand another deposed agent took the Stand and gave the other side of the matter- Commissioner Prewitt will receive the stenographic report sA the testi mony by to day and staled that he

men or at least beings ho asked that they be called menbut they are notwho will sell their right to think speak or act for a little mess of pottage no batter whether it be great or small MR HAGER and some of his of ficials claim that Gen Hays can didate for the Democrat nomina tion for Governor is attacking the Democratic party in his exposures of the machine at Frankfort which is run operated and controll ed by Beckham and Hager Who ever heard of J C W Beckham or Sam Hager being the Democratic party in Kentucky Is not this an assumption ot greatness and power heretofore unheard oP We knew tnat Hager was a purse proud aris tocrat Jand very showy on dress pa rade but never before did we know that he was the whole Democratic party in Kentucky We knew that Beckham and Hager had built up a great and dangerous politkal machine but we were never aware belore that they called that machine the Democratic party with Mr Beckham as pilot Sam Hager as captain and Miss Percy Haley to shovel in coal Could anyone imagine George Washington calling himself the American Republic Just think of Robt E Lee assuming to be the whol Southern Army or Grant claiming that if he were killed the whole American Army would be destroy ed Who ever heard William Jennings Bryan claiming that the whole Democratic party would die if he should be defeated Yet here in old Kaintuck if an honest faithful Democrat has the hardihood to disagree with the members of the machine and sees fit to condemn the conduct and practices of the men who are piloting the ma chine he is charged at once with attacking the Democratic party But that is the only answer the members of the machine have to the very serious charges Gen Hays is making against them Gen Bays exposure of the offenses of these members composing the machine will strengthen the Demo cratic party It will teach Democratic officiale that they must be honest and protect the tax paying public It shows that Hays has the courage of honest convictions and that he want to protect the people against the plunderers of their rights and destroyers of the Democratic party The Signal wants honest faithful men in office Men who will look after the welfare of our Government and pro tect the interest of the people and we think that Napolean B Hays is just this kind of a man He is honest he is able he is industrious and by casting your vote for him we are building up instead of tear ing down the Democrat party Sec 115 of the Kentucky Statute gives the Governor the right to em ploy special counsel and limits the compensation for such employment as follows But the compensation or fee agreed to be paid attorney or at tornevs shall not exceed THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS in any case of prosecution In one case Gov Beckham al lowed McQuown and Brown the legal props of the machine a FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR fee and subsequent to that allowed Bennet Young and William Linds ey a TEN THOUSAND DOL LAR fee Both fees were paid by Hager out of the peoples money How can Beckham and H ger rec oncile the amount of these allow ances with the law They have been asked time and again to ex plain but to this good hour they open not their mouths upon this subject The taxpayers from allover Kentucky would like 4to hear from the two candidates WE want to again urge upon the democrats the importance of being at the polls on the sixth of next month The republicans are in the field fighting for supremacy and because of the facj that this is the only county in the district which always gives a republican majority and being the home of Judge Bethurnm the republican candidate for Congress the strong e tfght will be made in this coun ty audit is therefore important that every democrat in the county does hispartgotO the polls and castlyour vote for the Hon Har- veyIHelthokLiucoIuS j t i rhr TIlE JJtctcham Hager and I Miss Percy Haley machine has done much to disrupt the democratic party in Kentucky Only two weeks ago this machine discovered that one of the guards at the pen itentiary was again t Beckham for the United States Senate Altho a faithful employe the machine had the guard discharged and Beckhamite immediately put in hisI place Is this democrac Is right when the democrats of Ken lucky have elected Beckham for him to turn upon a fellow democrat who helped elect him and throw him out of employment because that democrat has the manhood to assert his own right to think and vote for whom he pleases Are we democrats or slaves A jury ot splendid democratic voters will render their verdict upon such offen es against democracy on the 6h day of next month MR HEARST is now finding out just how it feels to have ones pri vate affairs discussed in the news papers He would probably be willing to pay double the amount of his New York taxes if
