Deadlock in Kentucky Senatorial Race Seems to Have f Become a Fixture ONE WAY OUT OF CONTEST Our Correspondent at the Capital Pre sents an Interesting Review of Af fairs Relating to the Legislature and Its DoingsIFrankfort Ky Jan 28The dead lock In the senatorial race seems to stillfBradley is five votes short with six RntiBeckham Democrats voting for McCreary Blackburn and other Demo oats and holding the balance of pow er The race has settled down to a sort of humdrum affair and the two steering committees are getting the only excitement out of it as they have to hustle around every morning to see jf all the absentees are properly paired with gome member of the opposite political party The six antiBeckham Democrats have it in power of course to elect eitherBeokhai qr Bradley but it has not been demon strated yet that they can pull ovc enough Democrats or enough Republi cans to elect a third man A Republi pan member of the legislature said last egjf that if he were released from voting for the Republican nominee W O Bradley he would be willing to vote for Wheeler Campbell one of the outiBeckbam Democrats and thin end the deadlock But I will neyej ask Bradley to release me said he for I know if I went to him and asUejJ him to release me he would give me a good cussing and I am not going to say a word about it but Just stand pat This indicates that the deadlock may con tinge to the end of the session but it will end any day that Beckham or Crtdiey withdraws from the race i i Governor WHlsou bag sent a special message to the legislature on the sub ject of better schools and a more al vauced system of education He says there Is a general movement all over the state f r better teachers better teaching be ter schools better school Bouses Ion er school terms ketter paid teachers firstclass normal schools to train teachers and a complete change in the whole school sys tern to bring it up to the best modern methods To carry out these ideas he provideledsenator one representative one lady to be chosen by the Federation of Womens clubs the president of till State university the presidents of the two normal schools one superintendent of eounty schools and one superin tendent of city schools all to be se lected by the governor except those specifically named The of this commission will be to investigate our school system and compare it with the best systems of other states and submit to the next general assembly a report embodying recommendations and suggestions as to needed changes in our school system A bill proposing to create said commission has al ready been introduced in the senate by Senator Rives and It will likely be passed and become a law if the senatorial race does not block all leglsla ttlon Senator R B Brown of Gallatin county has introduced one of the most remarkable bills of the session and whale It is riot likely to become a law it is an index of the determined fight the tobacco growers are mating to in crease the price of tobacco by growing no crop at all this year Senator Browns bill provides that before it shall be lawful for any farmer to raise a crop of tobacco this year he shall first procure a license to do so from the county clerk and the price to b charged for said license shall be 50 for each acre of tobaccoproposed to b grown The penalty for the violation of provisions of the bill is fixed at a fine of from 500 to 1000 so it is safe to predict that if the bill becomos the law there will be no tobacco grown in Kentucky this year i i u The building of good roads in this state will bo given a most wholesome impetus if the bill fathered bv Sen tors Bosworth and Wyatt can bo pass ed Under the present constitution no county can assume an indebtedness for road build ng purposes greater than 2 per cent of the assessed value of the property in the county This amount has been found to be totally Inadequate to secure anything like a decent system of public roads and the demand from the people for better roads has become so insistent that an amendment to the constitution isI deemednecessary as the only way to meet the demand of the people The BosworthWyatt bill provides that a vote be taken on an amendment to the constitution which will permit the counties to become indebted for build Ing public roads to the amount of 10 per cent of the taxable value of the givethethey are in earnest or not when they clamor for better iia roads A dtermined fight will be made in this session of the legislature to give vmen the right to vote in school elec tions and to hold the office

page trustee or any other school office Representative J A Sullivan of Mad ison county has introduced a bill i the house the first section of whIch says That any woman possessing the qualifications requisite to a male voter in common school electIons and who in addition maybe able to read nnd write is hereby declared qualified to vote at any election held for the purpose of choosing any officer of schools or upon any measure relating to schools and any woman possessing the qualifications required for males is hereby declared to be eligible to hold any office now existing or that may hereafter be created by any act of the general assembly Several delegations of women have already been to Frankfort in the inter est of this bill but some of the leading Womans club members are working against it It is predicted that the main stumbling block in the way of the measure becoming a law is the fact that it gives negro women the same right to vote and hold office that gives to tie white women a a 0 IiIt For the past twenty years or more mpts have been made to reduce fees charged by stockyards com panies but for some reason all hills introduced in the legislature on that subject have failed to pass Senator R W Owen of Hancock county has in troduced a sill this session to regulate and reduce these fees and the prices charged for provender The senator is a farmer and a stock trader himself and he feels from personal experience that the prices charged by these com panies is too large His bill provides that the price charged shall not be more than 50 per cent higher than the market price of the provender and that the actual weight of the food shall be taken and not charged by guess as seems to be the custom of some of the stockyard companies This bill will meet with the hearty approval of the farmers and shockshippers all over the state e t a A bill aimed at the drug stores and corner grocery stores that sell whisky has been introduced The bill does not name the drug stores or groceries but it provides that one having a license to sell liquor shall not engage in any other business at the same place he sells the 1Jflu roAmong the other scores of bills offered the following are the most Important Act to require an annual apportionment and accounting of the surplus of life insurance companies Act prohibiting the manufacture and sale of cigarettes in this state and providing a severe punishment therefor Act to prohibit the marriage of first and second cousins in this state Act to prevent the crowding or Overloading beyond their seating cayacty of cars provided by railroad companies for the transportation of passengers and to prevent any increase in rates now in effect or the withdrawal of cer taro tickets in retaliation Act providing for the teaching or thr elements of agriculture in the public schools of the state Act amending the election law by providing that hereafter the ballots shall have no party emblems on them Act giving the landlord a superior lien on the tenants crop for the money advanced to raise the crop the lien to be superior to all other liens for onr year ass The classic old building where the legislature now

the old bniMing for its many historical associations aud are anxious to see it preserved for all time and used by the state for some purpose The most fre quent suggestion Is that it be turned over to the State Historical society and let that organization make a state historical museum of it after the new statehouse is furnished and occupied Nearly all the other older states have a historical museum and Kentucky should have one by all means No more suitable building couid be found for such a purpose and the stale will have no further use for it uHIr next year In this way the state would se cure a most valuable and interesting feature without having to spend anything to get ito a 0 b great many amusing things are told as jokes on the legislative memo bers from some of the back counties snore of them being true and some of them probably not true The other day at the boarding house where one of these rural members was stopping the housekeeper had apple dumplings for dinner and served
