State It is a great thing for Kentucky that there exists the Kentucky State Development Association which through organization svstem and presige ought to succeed in accomplishing more for the material advancement of Kentucky in ashot4 while than scattered desultory and individual efforts could accomplish in along while The title Fassociation tells the whole story ot its purposethe development ol Kentucky There is no State in the Union which has greater possi bilities and none with better op portunities for the developer It is this strong and useful bo9y that is to meet in Louisville next month Nov 19 20 and 21 Here it will take up the work where it left oft a year ago and give new impetus to the movemens of State develop ment This association takes the view that what helps andenriches the community helps andenriches the individual and every step to ward the advancement of Ken tuckys material interests is a step toward the advancent of the inter csts of ever

railroad for a beginning Facts of this nature brought before the proper persons are bound to have a most beneficial and enliven ing effect In this connection is well to remind the association and the people of the State that while it is true that railroads are greatly needed by the State since some of the richest of the counties have not a single mile of railroar capital is verytimid and is easily scared away by antagonize senti menteItjs as injurious to a com mumiy for its people to persecute capital as it is for capital to oppress the people Extreme measures taken in certain States against railroads have set progress back decades in those States and if ever Kentucky people should show a spirit of hostility toward rail rOads and other enterprises of capi tal tbe progress of the State and
