VICTORY The Court of Appeals in up holding the constitutionality of the new school law holds that the County Board of Education has the right to determine what amount ofmoney is needed by the schools what is more to the purpose it provides the means whereby the Fiscal Court can be made to supply the money The money so raised is to be applied to the needs of the schools themselves the State making liberal provision for the pay of the teachers The value of this decision can not beoverestimrted The Sullivan law which embodies the best features of the common school laws of those States which have made the greatest advancement in com mon scbooLinstruction provides in theory for an educational system the district school leading to the county high school and the high school in turn leading up to the State university and the State normal schools which gives to every white child of school age in Kentucky the opportunity to obtain within the State a rounded educa tion that will fit him for the trained and intelligent discharge of all the duties of citizenship and give him a marked advantage over his uneducated competitor in everyday life The decision of the Court of Appeals makes of this theoretical system an established selfmain taining and selfperpetuating fact Kentucky actually has every op portunity that the leaders inthe educational movement have asked for it What the decision means to every county to the State to the South and to the country cannot be forecast or even reduced to figures It does mean the setting at work of ever broadening forces for good whose influence will make itself felt for all time Kentucky has won a great victory The duty remaining is to make the best use of the fruits of itCourier Journ- alBODIIEAD Rev Barnes filled the pulpit at Baptist

today very where he stood when a slave before Ihe Civil war His friends and sympathizers today are the de scendents of those owners and their social cogeuers whereby we mean the great mass of cultivated together with the land holders atd the tax payers The negros enemies before the war were the crackers the sand hillers and the wool hatters who were treated as less important than a well

THEMATJBRIAX IF IT is PROPERLY UTILIZED TO PROVIDE UP TO DATE- THOROUGHFARES To the Editor of CourierJournal Through the influence of ttautomobilisml we hope to see the question of good roads assume the place it deserves in our national economy One very annoying thing to lovers of gqod roads is the en croachment upon the right of way in the country ditricts and the utter indifference upon the part of those whose duty it is to protect the public from such encroachment In many places one half or more of the right of way has been fenced up or otherwise obstructed From my viewpoint the man who thus attempts to steal the public domain and the man who robs my poultry house lookalike the one is covetous and avaricious the other is lazy and hungry They may both He good men of their kind but they are not representatives of good citizenshipA article on good roads brought a flood of questions from suburban residents and boards of public work Many of these were answered by public letters The object of this article is to reiterate som of the former asser tions and go into further detail These assertions however are susceptibleof demonstration There is one fundamental principal in the construction of any kind of road that should never be lost sight ol namely the question of thorough drainage No road material will stand the wear of traffic unless properly drained Even ommon clay well packed is an excellent road until it becomes dusty On the other hand the best roadmaterial Will disintegrate if exposed to water That difficulty is ovecome by keeping the middle tull while the ditches on the sides must be kept open Neithershould water be allowed to stand at the base of a fill for it will soften and cause the road to sag A roadbed thus prepared requires less macadam to withstand heavy traffic It seems that efficiency and cheapness ot tke dressing is what staggers the readers credulity Since the former article I have learned of some experiment along the lines indicated that proved very unsatisfactory but their treatment of the case was absurb You could not paint a house and add to its beauty and durability without using sufficient material to give body to the paint And so it is with the asphalt dressing for the top of your road or street If you cover the macadam four inches deep in the asphalt sand native it will become impacted and cement the whole mass Water cannot penentrate it dust will blow off or wash off as the case may be steel tires will glide over it as noiseless as rubber it will last indefinitely without repair That top dressing should be put on for from 3 to cents per surface yard according to location and cost of trans portation The wide distribution of that particular variety of asphalt is another thing that staggers even the credulous Let us first accept the fact and reason out the cause In a past age Kentucky contained an extensive oil field By erosion much of that field has beea carried away and by the same process deep channels were cut in the laud Hills ridges and knobs were left Where these channels have cut through the strata of oil sand but left a slate roof with sufficient hill above the processes of generation an l evaporation have continued for ages and the asphalt is the residue In support of this theory your coiresoondent cites a freshwater spring out of which a small stream of bitumen worms its way On the hil a halfmile distant brittle asphalt is found in fractures which gave it the appearance of having been molded in sun cracks in mud Inrgoo he visited a cave in the same county and observed water white oil dripping from the rocks overhead He afterward investi gated and discovered the outcrop of the oil and or as he is pleased to call it that asphalt sand rock 30 feet to 50 feet in thickness Herethehill is broad the covering deep and consequently the evaporation is not so rapid so in this instance you could only lope to obtain a cheap oil wjth auv asphalt base Another instance is a small t I I mountain in which the shows on three sides In outcropI a few feet of the bottom sand and white pebbles with some iron oxide an ideal material for making gravel road At another point liquid asphalt has been tickling down over a ledge of limestone for many years The same sand is found in the hills above u One more point of special interest is a tableland between the water courses Here the covering is not heavy but the specimen from this property is the best your cor respondent has seen in the State These four instances are sufficient to subserve the purpose of this article but may I add that the richer deposits should be sought east of the Cincinnati Arch and may be found over an extended areaThe developement of our roads means the development of this industry and vice versa With these immense advantages on tbt surface we should inaugurate a good road campaign that will prove an epochmaking period in the history of our grand old Com monwealthVery

interest to the politicans of Kentucky He finds that the Blue Grass Commonwealth is being buncoed out ot places in the department service at Washington by persons who have had themselves cred ted to Kentucky but who have no right to claim citizenship in that state Some of them have never set foot on blue grass sod and have no nearer claim to resi dence than the fact that their grandfathtr once live there grandfather once live there or a great uncle on the maternal side passed through the State Senator Bradley went after these bunco artists by securing the adoption in the Senate a few days ago of a resolution calling upon the civil service commission for a complete statement of persons in the government seryice who are ccredited to Kentucky with the home town and country of each He has refered these names to the Republican chairman in the various counties of Kentucky with instructions to inquire into the genuineness of the claims of those who hold public positions in Washington on
