ti N LAND STOCK AND CROP If there was ever a time in the history of farming in Kentucky that the farmers should not be kicking it is at present for a careful survey of the situation and a study of the conditions shows that the products for the farm ranging from an egg to a big fat steer are higher this year than ever before when taken on the average The time when people should not be kicking and complaining is when they are prosperiig and a study of the farming prices of the present show that if the farmer is not prospering at present fte never will prosper There is absQr lately no reason for complaint no matter whether it is raining tQP much or too little everything wilj work out for the good of the farmer this year The recent rains have caused some of the farmers worry but this is unnecessary for although it has caused some of them to work over their soil that had been prepared for corp and tobacco as many us four times nevertheless it will make the corp and tobacco crops that much better Besides with the modern farm machinery ana gut harrows tisnot much more trouble to run Qver the soil the second and third limes to get it in good condition Again it must be taken into consideration that when rain is disarrangfng tb- plausof the farmers in hardening the soil they have prepared for corn and tobacco it is benefitting the growing crops Sometimes you maybe told that there are other things as goods D Wltts n y and Bladder Pills That istft so iotbing made as gQpdjiS J eiWitts Kidney and Bladder Pills for any ailment pt the Kidney or blad r which lwayrestltia weak

from here to Mt Vernon Jt 19 no wonder that Livingston bag such a tough name We would bp glad if the Livingston correspondent to the Louisville Times would now consider the part he took in the former case of advocating their cause We could say more but it is useless since the one who should have prosecuted them took an act lye part in defending them Shame on a man who will listen to such men as Montgomery aud who will not listen to the advice of men who are trying to upbuild the morals Qf the town We could say a great deal on the subject but since the one who should be the most concerned is

past but thanks to the initiative of the late P F Collier and few other Americans their Interest have at last been thoroughly aroused and now they turn their attention and affections toward the old place in Larue county ever and anon The ceremonies at theFarm on Monday were a great stimulus of Kentucky interest The unveiling o the statue of Lincoln which was the occasion of the eloquence of Mr Watterson and the presence of the son of the martyred President seemed to represent a sort o concrete accomplishment which nothing else up to that time had accomplished The dedication of the place by Mr Roosevelt in February represented what seems more of an abstract idea than a physical thing The statuefat last typifies in a substantial shape the sentiment enveloping the farm It stands on the consecrated ground a figure to impress the eye and to stir the heart but also a symbol to proclaim to all corners that here is 9 shrine of patriots here is abiding place ofa peoples gratitude and love Therefore the ceremonies of unveiling were eloquent significant and memorable From this time forth the Farm will mean a great dead more to Kntqckiapcn4 to mericgns in general than it has ever meoqt before It will be the objective point of many a Kentuckian on an outing bent who in the previous times would never have dreamed of traveling thither It will be a sort of Mecca to American pilgrims too From all parts of the country we will see men women and children coming to visit the old homepf Lincoln to walk over the ground where he trod as a youth tp drink of the spring whose waters contributed to his sustenance to stand before the statue wrought in bis name and to examine the relics and souvenirs of his life that will be found reposing in the temple now building for their shelter Of course to the materialists the conversion of the Farm into a national park has a definite commercial value It will bring bus iness to Kentucky it will put new life into the business of Hoflgenville But it is the sentM mental side of tile project that is of the highest significance Jt is sentiment which moves the promoter of the park projct it is Sentiment that has caused the people of the United States to ontribute to the funds necessary fQr the proper arrangement of the land and it is sentiment that will make the place a sbrme dqrin the centuries to come ft is tqe senti meat underlying that gives to the projecteven its materialistic value Jjouisville Times A THRILLING RESCUED How Bert R Lean of Cheny Wash was saved from a frightful death is a story to thrill the world A hard coldvhe wrhes brought

A wise father in closing a curtain lecture to his son is reported to have said It is a comforting doctrine and one that men often preach to each other that a man deserves all credit for everything

other states in case of harder times bythearoused by Mr W H Newman a prominent business man of Louisville who Is widely known over the state Mr E H Bowen expjesident of the Board of Trade was chosen as chair nan of the meeting He invited discussion of the prohibition question and Mr Clarence Dallam attorney at lawI WeisingerMragainst prohibition The Rev M J Fanning a traveling prohibtion orator now working in Kentucky asked for a hearing and received respectful attention Mr Newman Explanation Mr W H Newman who called the meeting together said in part The resolutions which I here offer were drawn after getting the views by conference and correspondence nearly every man present and some who are not all points as shown and approved by them and signified their intention of being present and in case they were not authorized the use of their names I might add that a great many ex pressed the desire that the laws pertaining to the retail liquor traffic should be looked after Many sugges tions were proposed such as high li cense and requiring the saloons tobe closedata reasonable hour at night which Is the case in many cutes the cancellation of the license of all who fail to comply strictly with the law and keep an orderly house etc Such au thority vested in an excise board ajv pointed by the governor being non partisan issue the licenses and have full power on sufficient evidence to fe yoke has given good results and great satisfaction in Massachusetts How ever such subjects were not incorpor ated in our resolutions as tciaeconi plish such result would require organ- Ization and as we are here only as In- divIduals we thought It advisable to express ojjr views briefly in the following resolutions Text of Resolutions FirstWe note with concern a movement destructive of the states largest industry and setting an example volvIng danger to all property SecondWe deplore and unreservedly condemn saloon domination in politics and favor Its extirpation at any cost and we appreciate the provoca tion afforded by such abuses to conscientious persons to advocate prohi bition but we deny the wisdom or honesty of a proceeding to destroy prop erty of so enormous value as a sheer experiment tried repeatedly with more or less failure and often after trial abandoned as unsuccessful ThirdWe unqualifiedly condemn as vicious and dishonest in principle and destructive of that liberty which con stitutes and must always constitute the basis of free government the boycott which has top often disgraced the methods of both prohibitionists and liquor me- nFourthThe liquor business em ploys a vast amount of capitaland tabor and brings a large amount of for eign capital to this state and it is an Industry upon which the state depends for a large proportion of its revenue and which pays very largely to the support of our various counties and municipalities FifthThe destruction of this industry legalized by the state from Its or ompenaaUonwould reflect upori its good name handed down to us by our forefathers and which we should pass on to our pos terity untarnished If compensation should be provided it would require the Issuing of approximately 70000 000 of bonds by the state To merit the interest on such an increased in debtedness would require an increase of at least 100 per cent In the taxes levied upon all other forms of prop city besides an Increase of 3313 percent in the tax rate on all remaining property to meet the loss of tax on this Divert Rtvenue Sixthit would divert from the tnte of Kentucky to other states such as Illinois and Pennsylvania

we believe that prohlbwould engender strife and bitterness among our people and would almost certainly be followed in Kentucky by a demand for similar action In regard tomthe manufacture and safe of the next largest Interest in Kentucky already agitated therefore be it IasResolved That we as businessmenI o Louisville and citizens of ItUCk while opposing Intemperance believe that a movement in favor of statewide prohibition would be detrimental in every way to the best intereats of our state and we are therefore unaltera bly opposed to such a movement or to further agitation of this question ex e Onforcethe strict regulation of the liquor traffic IFcts and Figures on tbe resolutions justbbefore they were adopted Mr shldI compiled from theistate and federal statistics from tax books and from other reliable sources show that the value of the theI1908 was 124821451 United States endIing June 30 1908 IIThe direct revenue from spirits dealers in Kentucky as aizationState exclusive of plants and other property amounts to 62687369 This 0theis To this sum add stock out of bond and distillery and brewing property 67 793473 and we have a total of 133 166211hous characters of Teal estate and Im Bizatlonof the value of the distillery and brew ing property can be given but the es timate seems reasonable when It is considered that the product of all other manufacturing establishments of the tate for the same properties amounts to 2768167 However this can be explained when it is known that whiskey remains in bonded warehouses for years for maturity and the same pro duct often pays tax for seven years to the state whereas all other manufac tured products are sold as soon after manufactured as possible Another fact to be considered is that the tax on every dollar of the assessed value of whiskey in bond is paid to the Audited of State direct and at very little exttnse for collection and a very portion of this Is paid by foreign investors Therefore the whiskey manufacturer or rather the foregoing facts show the whiskey manufacturer is infinitely more valua hie as a taxpayer than all others The total assessed value of all property in Kentucky is 747918326 Deduct from this the value of distillery and brewing property and the assessed value of other products out of bond amounting to 67793473 and there re mains 680124853 of assessable prop erty which would have to make up the loss of 193166211 sustained by the loss of the special licenses and tax derived from whiskey in bond This would require an increase in the tax rate of 28 per cent on every dollar of assessed property remaining The final sufferers will be the owners of land and improvements which unlike other property cannot be moved to other states promising better re turns for improvement as real estate is the final sufferer from all taxation I might also add that the state of Kentucky paid internal revenue tax on spirits in the year 1908 amounting to 2408666311 which would be lost to the government and this revenue would have to be replaced by some ad ditional taxation a portion of which would have to be borne by this state as well as others Telegrams From Business Men
