night the truthof itcan not be donbted The fact is it is proved a truth every day in more ways than one but in the case of Egbert Saylers of Livingston fourteen years old he proved it ita very unusualway and in a wy not cilcalited to pleaseall concerned In thiScase the child led them a rather ithilddoesntr business and the way of the world too is not worth knowing What he does know would make some of the old heads bow their heads in shame Egbert Saylers has a sister Hazel five years old and has been living at Livingston with her stepmother He decided to bring his sister to Lonibville to the Masonic Widows and Orphans Home How beI knew whit to do with his sister that there was a Masonic Widows and Orphans Home here no one knows but he did and Saturday night he spirited his little sister away and took her to Corbian d at midnight boarded a Knoxville division Louisville and Nashv ille train 4fInin the plans he decided thata sleeping car would be the best place to ride and telling the Pullman conductor that he had a sleeping car ticket he went into the car Bnt he didnt have the ticket He knew that his relatives would go through the train at Livingston and this was his way of fooling them His father and mother are both dead and his father was a Mason He therefore thought it a good plan to wear his fatheis emblem of the order And he did so but con cealed it from view True to his prediction a relative sOhe says boarded thetrain to lookforwtbe children but did not think to look in the sleeping car So they con tijued on their way unmolested bnt without money R T De Spain of Louisville and C A Linchelle of Central City both Masons at this time were called to the attention of the boy and his sister by the boy who showed his fathers emblem It was then in the early hours of morning an d Hazel was fast asleep but Egbert findithem always alert for the welfare ot his little sister McTsrs Kitchelle and De Spain touk charge of the children and brought them to Louisville and Mr Kinchelle gives the following accountThe boy the nrne ofwhom is Egbert SalYtrs as he gives it to me was with bis sister Hazel The understanding of the world and its ways as possessed by him I think is remarkable Hetold me rel atives had thretened to notify the police at Louisville if he ran away and that they knew that he pro posed to do so He suggested that he get off of the train at South Louisville which he did as it might be thet the police would be wait ing at Tenth street Station We took a Fourth avenue car and transferred to West Chestnut street en route to the home of the boys aunt here where he will stay until we can get him transferred the Orphans HomeIn order to do this we must get the approval of the lodge at Livingston and we will take up the matter with them How the boy got the notion in hs head to take his sister I do not know but he did 1It was a touching scene at the home of the boys aunt He was all excitement endeavoring to tell the details of his experience was gratifyng to see his aunt con rat ulate him as she did She said that she would keep him and his sister until other arrangements are made Mr Kinchelle is a traveling salesman and

Open Rumors of a Break From the Beckham Ranks Creates Engrossing Situation at the Opening of Ken tuckys General Assembly Frankfort Ky Jan 7For many reasons the present session of the Kentucky legislature promises to be a memorable one and Kentucky has had several memorable legislatures par ticularly in 1884 in 1896 and in 1900 Of course the chief interest centers in the race for United States senator and the possibility of a deadlock Gov ernor Beckham is the nominee of the butIsome representatives will not vote for him The legislature in joint ballot stands 73 Democrats to 65 Republicans the senate having 22 Democrats and 16 Republicans while the house has 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans If as many as four Democrats refuse to vote for Beckham a deadlock will re suIt It has been frequently asserted In the newspapers that this Demo cratic legislator or that one would not support Beckham but so far no one has openly announced that he would vote against him On the Republican side It seems io be conceded that exGovernor W 0 Bradley will be nominated to oppose Beckham and some of the Republi can leaders have declared positively that the house would be organized by them and not by the Democrats If this be true then a deadlock is sure to resultThe first vote for senator will not be taken till Jan 21 although the legisla ture convenes on Jan 7 The senate and house will vote separately In their respective chambers on Jan 21 and will meet In joint session in the house the following day to ratify the election it someone was elected or to take an other ballot If no one was elected the day before Each side is warily watching the other now and neither side is doing any talking as to plans but each is willing to take advantage of any mis take made by the others The de plorable feature of it all is that it is admost sure to bring about much bit terness If a deadlock comes There will be a number of contests for seats In the house filed by both Republicans and Democrats These will be fought over bitterly as the house is so close that one vote may decide the fate of every contestant for a seat for if one contestant is seated he will naturally vote with his party to unseat others If one Democrat in the house re fuses to vote with his party the house will be deadlocked and cannot be or ganized till some other man deserts or the deserter comes back In such an event James E Stone chief clerk of the last house will preside as the law makes it his duty to call the house to order and preside till the speaker Is elected If a deadlock comes Mr Stone will preside from day to day till someone comes over or goes overT and votes for the other fellow If all the talk about a deadlock proves to be moonshine then W J Gooch Democrat of Simp son county will be elected speaker of the house and James E Stone chief clerk There seems to be no chance of a deadlock In the senate but that body will have Its troubles as well as the house if all indications are true In 1896 when W J Worthington Rep vas lieutenant governor the majority of the senators were Democrats so they passed a rule providing for a special committee to select all the standing committees of the senate Theretofore it had been the custom for the lieutenant governor who is ex officio president of the senate to ap point all the committees probably for the reason that the lieutenant govet nor and the majority in the senate had always been of the same political par ty since the war It has been stated that the Demo crats In the present senate would repeat what was done In 1896 as Wm H Cox the present lieutenant gover nor is a R publican Cox has served two terms In the senate and has been very popular with the Democrats in theymaymittees The senate and house meet today but it Is probable the standing committees will not be appointed be fore next Saturday or Monday so It will be several days before it is deter mined who will name the senate com mittees t 4 One of the measures that will be bit terly fought over this session will be the bill or bills providing for redis trictlng the state into senatorial and representative districts The Democratic court of appeals declared the redistricting of two years ago unconstitutional because of the unequal div ision of population some of the dis tricts having 12000 while others had 40000 The court went further and said the present districts were in re ality unconstitutionally made up but as the elections in them had been held for xso many years the act cresting them would not now be declared unconstitutional because it would be IT DOES THE BUSINESS Mr K E Chamberlain of Clinton Main says of Bucklens Arnica Salve It does the business I have used it for piles forichappedheiled it without leavinw a scarj behind 25c at Chas C Davis drug store HAZELAl1 r against public policy It is always a hard fight to pass a satisfactory re districting bill even where one politI- cal party has a big majority but it will be especially so this year because of the almost even division of the two parties in the legislature As the pres ant districts are considered to be to the advantage of the Democrats it is presumed the Republicans will make the hardest fight to have new districts created that will give a more equal division of population r s It was expected two years ago that the present legislature would be able to hold its sessions in the handsome new statehouse but no provision has yet been made for furnishing the new building and making it habitable The building itself is very near completion it being all under roof except a small part of the center dome and much of t the interior work is completed It is expected that it will take another appropriation of 250000 to pay for fit ting up the new structure in proper style with desks fileboxes carpets furniture etc and the present legis lature will be asked to make the ap propriation for that purpose The to tal appropriations so far made for the new capitol amount to 1250000 which will complete it all but the fur nishings According to the estimates of the states financial officers it will not be necessary to increase the rate of taxation to complete the new building as no increase was made when the other appropriations were made and especially as there is over a mil lion dollar balance in the state treasury now Yesterday was moving day at the statehouse all the new Republican offi cials taking charge the Democrats retiring In many of the offices where the wrrk is necessarily complicated a number of the old clerks will be retained for several months or until the new clerks get trained for the work ft is expected however that in six months all the Democratic clerks will be replaced by Republicans The attorney general under the present law is allowed no clerks or assistants and is probably the hard estworked official in the statehouse A strong effort will be made this ses sion to have a law passed providing him with at least two assistants and a stenographer Governor Willson has been having a strenuous time since his inauguration a month ago and what with office seekers nightriders and the com ing of the legislature he has not been treading the primrose path of dalliance The governor has some fads but they are fads that are tempered with common sense For instance he says he will appoint no man to office who applies for it and simply signs the initials of his first name That is J H Smith will not be considered at all but John H Smith will be He says he has quit talking politics now and is trying earnestly to be the gov ernor for all the people and using ev cry mfans in his power to enforce the peoples laws that are on the statute has been said about the gov ernor being placed on the national ticket next year as a candidate for vice president but he positively for bids any discussion of the subject He says he has been elected to serve as governor for four years and if he lives he purposes to carry out the contract made with the people last election dayProbably the hardest nut the new governor will have to crack will be the settlement of the tobacco situation and the arrest and conviction of the night riders who have been destroying to bacco warehouses in Hopkinsville and Russellville It is the general belief that under the present laws it will be almost impossible to indict or convict the night riders because the memo bership of the tobacco associations is so large that it will be almost impossi ble to get a jury that will not have several friends and fellowmembers of the night riders on it This being the case the present legislature will be asked to evolve a new law by which that class of lawbreakers may be reached and punished Governor Will sons recommendations along this line in his message to the legislature are strong and to the point He seems to have set his heart on solving this question and is determined that the law shall be upheld and every mans property and life made secure from lawless groups of men who operate at night behind masks Governor Willson has announced that he is in favor of all the state in stitutions being managed by nonpar tisan boards and says he will not rec ommend that the legislature make any appropriation for any educational in stitution that is maintained by the state and managed by trustees who alt belong to the same political party As an Instance he cites the State College at Lexington all of its trustees being Democrats It is proper to state how ever that those who are in position to know state that while the trustees of the State College are all Democrats a majority of the teachers and in structors are Republicans so thai evens matters up ill a mast and re lieves it of the odium of being known as a partisan colleges t Tim temperance question will be an other factor that will enter largely into this legislative session A bill to extend the present county unit law so as to include every county in the state irrespective of the size of the cities it contains will be presented early in the session and it is believed the bill will be enacted The liquor

of the Question by the Farmer For His Own Interest The farmers composing the Grange sn organization that has done much lr study tire real interests of the farmer has been taking a good deal uf interest in the subject of taxation lately and some very pertinent ut terances on this question have been given out in the addresses of the Masters at annual sessions of various state Granges At a recent meeting of the Wash ington State Grange the Master gave considerable attention to the question of taxation He said in tart tor urge every Grange in this state to take up the study of taxation in all its phases earnestly and seriously during the coining year for fee strongly that we farmers have hlflI Iy realized the importance of thor oughly uiiil standing the principles or taxation- in tundnmentalI censoring the taxes In the brief time able to give it since my mind has been fully aroused to its importanceI have come to doubt wisdom of our present method of as scssing stale taxes Section 2 of Ar title 7of our slate constitution is as follows The legislature shall pro vide by law a uniform and equal rate of assessment and taxation on all property in the state according to its value in money This is the general property tax similar to Kentucky The above constitutional provision is similar to that of many of the west ern states and enjoins a system of taxation which has been tried in praq tically all the states of the Union It requires the application of the sanie rules of taxation to forms of property totally different in character Most of the older states such as New York Connecticut Massachusetts New Ter sey and Pennsylvania have constitutions which impose no restraint on the power of the legislature or very little more restraint than that imposed by the federal constitution Those states have developed systems of taxation more in harmony with modern condi tionsThe attempt to tax all kinds of property by the same rules has in all times and in all countries imposed heavier burdens upon rural districts than cities and in a large degree has measured the tax to be paid by each citizen by the amount of his consumption rather than by the oppor tunity he enjoys to acquire wealth under the protection of the state The plan adopted by our neighbor Oregon is to apportion the state tax in proportion to the revenue raised by each county Oregon nade the mistake of not carrying ou the principle to its logical conclusion The tax should be apportioned in pro portion to the entire revenue raised by each county and all the taxing dis tricts within each county- It is very easy to see that the more highly developed and more densely populated a county may be the more money it needs for local purposes in proportion to its taxable values and the greater is the power to pay taxes The tax apportioned in this manner will shift from the poorer and remote rural counties the burden they now bear and impose it on the more thickly settled and prosperous coun awayIdervalue property in order to shift the state tax o other communities A study of the experience of other states shows that one of the greatest evils has been this incentive to undervalue It produces inequality and dissatisfac tion if not downright fraud The Ohio State Grange In Ohio they are proposing an amendment to the constitution that will per mit of a classification of the sources of revenue such as is now in effect in Pennsylvania The difficulty with ttie Ohio constitution is exactly similar to that in Kentucky They are pro posing there an amendment to the constitution which will make it read this way Taxes shall be levied at a uniform rate upon all property of the same class The Ohio constitu tion now rrquires that taxes shall bP uniform upon all classes of property the provision being similar to that ol the constitution of Kentucky The Master Honorable F A Derthick commenting upon the proposed amend ment to the constitution said To pull up every stake in our con stitution seems heroic treatment ant if lone would throw upon the people added responsibility in the selection of their representatives If classification is to be the plan adopted it should be left to a commission of at least five members appointed by the governor one from each of the four sisters whose combined efforts have made us all we areone from manu facture one from mining one from commerce one from agrculture This board should be reinforced by the up- pointment of a member of wellknown integrity and great legal ability The farmers are not committed to the idea of classification but we wish to join in the study of tax revision The Ohio State Grange assembled in annual session December 11 to 13 1906 by a unanimous vote expressed the desire of an organized body of tax payers fifty thousand strong to co operate with all other interests in de vising a tax system that shall be Just and fair to every legitimate interest in the state WHY COLDS ARE- DANGEROUS if you would be immune
