thousand people and that those five thousand people probablycontrol more than onehalf of the wealth of the country There are three million recognized paupers in this country and three million five hundred thous and children between the ages of ton and fifteen years working in tho mines and factories This Is according to socalled authorative resources There Is no question but the situation is far worse than reported When there is a great conflagration and thousands of dollars worth of property is destroyed the amount is al ways overestimated Bnt when it comes to reporting the sufferings of humanity the truth is always suppressed The facts are those in an official must cover 1 of their dirtvjijjriciand bcaiuooJJri h5facts would not look well print To publish the real facts to the world

lfWJncebltu Suahllt1 City Affairs Considered At j Length In Judge Bentons Charge to the Grand Jury Af the opening of the Circuit Court last week Judge Benton delivered probably the strongest admonition to theI Grand Jury ever heard in tho Rich mood court house He not only in veighed against all formsof lawlessness but he extended his remarks to cover municipal conditions in a way that opened the eyes and ears of Ins hearers the assembled Bar and a large atten lance of witnessess and spectators Ho congratulated the city upon the firm stand taken by Mayor Woods and the city administration against violations that the Judge said were entirely too common in all our cities hoping that their efforts would rid the city of tbes violations Since assuming the dirties of Circuit Judge His Honor had insisted that Grand Juries in each county should ferret out and indict the violators for the offenses to which Mayor Woods had directed attention in his opening address to the Council last month yet the Judge realizes tat those questions can be more effectively dealt with by the city authorities which are always at band than by the Circuit Courts which meet only three times a year Judge Benton ad monished the citizens that they should crystallize public sentiment in support of the reforms undertaken by the new administration which he would aid in every way in his power Along these lines the Judge read the following extract from an address re cently delivered at Covington by Governor Folk of Missouri before the State Bar Association and it is hereby printed as a rowerful contribution to the current literature of the day upon civic affairs In a monarchy the government is sustained by the power of the crown in a republic the government rests en tit elv upon the laws which a majority of the people make for themselves If all the laws were iguortd anarchy would be the resultthere would be uo government at all When any por tion of the laws are not enforced the government is weakened to that extent Laws that are not observed add just as much to good government as sores do to the human body Disregard- of one law breeds contempt for all laws and laws to be effective must be respected There is entirely too little respect for the majesty of the law in America This inevitably leads to cor ruption which will if tolerated eat irto and destroy cfvic life If a dram shop Is allo ved to remain open at a time the law demands it be closed then the gambling laws can not be consist ently enforced then o her offenses do nounced by law must be tolerated then comes grafting by officials tor overlook ing these violations then legislators imbued by the same spirit sell their votes for bribe money and a reign of corruption follows The perpetuity of our Government depends upon the manner in which our laws are carried out Nearly every Slate has laws on the statute books to which no attention is paid and they reap the fruits by having all laws broken I am not an alarmist when I say if these conditions be tolerated the republic itself will sooner or later fall by the props of the law ou which it rests being weakened and JecayeJ Americans are accustomed to regard a republican form of government PS a natural condition That government is mortal and can die is a thought so entirely foreign to our conditions that it is folly in tho minds of some to discuss it A glance at history does not lend encouragement to this cheerful view Our republic though the best is not the first nor the oldest We have lasted now one hun dred and twentynine years Venice had a republican form of government for 1100 years Carthage 700 years Athens with various Intermissions 900 years Florence 300 and Rome 500 years These governments have longago passed from the stage of the worldand some ojttygj afe ITtler memberi r Feb 1rnment were S3ouWednerdvllIluSng Mr aDd then onifLUuIntlmistory as lODe of the most splendid and shortest lived among the wrecks with which the shores of time are strewn What caused the downfall of these governments by the people The people made laws until the laws became so many the people began to disregard their own laws The laws of Rome were srood indeed the Justinian Cods is said to be the most perfect system of laws everdevisedly manyet Rome rotted and fell even while this code was in operation The laws were right but the hearts of the people were not right and the laws were not obeyed When the laws ceased to reign the govtrn ment resting upon that foundation of law commenced to topple over The reign of law means the rule of the people for a majority of the people make the laws They register their will crystalized in the form of statutes We need a revival of the rule of time people Four years ago the laws against bribery id all the United States was considered practically a dead let ter Up tQ that time for the fifty years preceding there had only been about thirtyfour cases of bribery re ported in the books in all tho United wereIof the House 01 Delegates denounced the bribery law as a blue law and as a dead law because It had not been en forced before They argued that members of the House of Delegates having been taking bribes from time immemorial they had acquired aright to do so and it was just as proper for them to sell their votes as for a merchant to sell hits wares Here was a crime worse than any other for bribery strikes at the foundation of all law yet the law denouncing it was not enforced Men gave bribes and thought nothing of it men took bribes and boasted of the fact corrupt men feasted and fattened at the public expense legislative halls became dens of thieves laws became merchandise pu the market and all this time the public conscience was asleep When tbe revelations came and the people saw how they had been plun dered and realized that government by bribery was a government by the wealth of a few and not by the people they saw the offense in all its enormity ana from one end of the land to the other there was a civic awakening Now everywhere officials are made to account at the bar of public opinion for all official acts and those who pros titute their trusts and sell the powers that belong not to them but to the people are being made to answer for their offenses And yet four years ago the Bribery law was denounced as ablue law by those against whom it was sought to be enforced Every law is a blue law if a man wants to break it The nonenforcement ot the bribery lUtutM might be explained by tbe dif Acuity o M uritttf raiMt of its viok Li xfjrr qI1 Ion though a prosecuting officer work ng at it seriously and willing to incur he enmities such an investigation vould bring about can usually lay bare renality of that kind IfIt exists Bnt here are other laws plainly made to please the moral element and then not enforced to please the immoral element 1he difference between a wide open town and a closed town is that in the Former the laws are not enforced while in the latter the laws are observed The gambling laws in many places are permitted to be disregarded and the laws regulating dramshops nullified It has been claimed that these lawn could not be enforced in large cities bat they areI enforced and faithfully observed In the large cities of Missouri In fact Mis souri is the most lawabiding State of the Union and in yielding obedience to law has set an example for other States to follow There is in practically all the States a statute requiring dramshops to close on Sunday and election days Yet in some States it is openly and flagrantly violated When one enforces this law because it is the law thsame cry is made about blue laws and dead laws It is a law in the interest of good government to stop the enormous amount of crime that comes out ol the dramshop on Sunday and election days Those interested in having the law violated set up the specious plea that it is an interference with personal liberty It is no more an interference with lib erty than the law against gambling or other laws in the nature of police regu lations which restrict the rights cf ole man when they Interfere with the rights of another Absolute liberty to do as one pleases would itifan barbar- Ism for there would be no limit to tIme conduct of an individual except hit whims The liberty of iuie world he the unrestricted liberty of every other and perpetual warfare would result as the wants and drsires of men come III conflict and every man would have equal right to lake or hoid what his strength or cunning could secure to him Security can only come from fixed rules which tho people as they become familiar with tIlf m will habit ually respect Restrictions which seem to the individual to be hirdshipt are but the will of the majority of the people operating through legislative acts Where rights are defined anti regulated by laws to which rca pot and obedience are given any particular law is deprived ifithl seeming hardship If each man were allowed to say what laws are good and what laws are bad and to ignore laws he considered bad there woulo be no laws at nil The dramshop keeper who violates the dramshop law calls loudly for the en forcement of the law against the man who freaks the larceny statute by rob bing his cash drawer The trust mac nate looks with abhorrence upon the burglar yet thinks he has a right to break the statute against combination and monopolies The burglar detest the law breaking of the trusts anti thinks they should observe the law but considers the law against housebreak ing as an interference with his per sonal liberty So it goes men observe the laws they like and think they have a right to ignore those they do not like The only sate rule is that if a law is on the statute books it must be observed If a law is objectionable it should repealed not ignored We need in tIme administration of the law more than anything else though perhaps the old Athenian law might be found beneficial which subjected to fine and imprisonment time person who proposed a law that turned out to he bad or in jurious to time public intermix We do not need new laws so much as thin en forcement of the laws we have Thor has been too much tampering with the laws in an effort to correct wrongs that do not arise from the inflriuity of the laws but rather from the feebleness ol their execution An imperfect law well administered is tar preferable to a per fect law badly carried out The law it merely a weapon in the bunds of offi rials for without officials laws would be as useless ascanuflnJriJVrtF n4tlQU It

may b- eIrd often is the clamor of the lawless who have a selfish interest in violating law The indifference of good citizens permitted bribery for a long time but h time public conscience was at last aroused to the necessity of stamping it out This civic indifference has perr mitted officials to take a solemn oath to carry out the laws on the statute booksb and then to deliberately violate that oath But the time is coming when an active public sentiment will demand that every public official keep his oath inviolate There is no greater evil among us than the easy nullification of laws by executive officials who haveu sworn to enforce them It is not for an executive official to say whether a lawo is good or bad but to enforce it as it is He should not ask is it popular or is itsgood politics hut ia it right In the end if he remains steadfast the right will win PE SOiN ALlMr W R Shackelford has hebIvisiting in Lexington Colonel W H Gentry of Lexing ton was here last week Miss

to be di videdfor and against The State of Maine standsas a formidable foe against those in favor of capital punishment It is a significant fact that in time State of Maine there have been no executions for murder for more than fifty years and apparently there are less atrocious crimes committed in that State than any in the Union The law there pro vides that any person convicted of mur der in the first degree shall suffer life imprisonment No parole is possible except where the absolute innocence of the prisoner is established Cs State Senator Lamb of Ohio in speaking of the possibility of a bill being introduced in the Ohio Legislature to permit women to vote at local option elections said I do not know anyone more interested than the women If anyone is entitled to say wheflier the young men should be exposed to the temptation surely it is the mothers There is no limit to the mothers love for hr lOS and they are eventually her whole dependence C George Ade the

TOriCS vs COLLIERS WEESKY THE trial of Town Topics va Col hers Weekly for criminal libel recently fought to a finish in the Courts of New York Is not only of newspspeifraterintv of very great interest to society goner ally The trial was began January 16 and lasted several days The cuse for action was at editorial Tin Colliers Weekly of August tit 1905 The editorial was an Arraignment of Justice Joseph M Deuol ofthe Court of Special Sessions of New York City and stated in part rHe is a part owner and one ot the editors of a paper of which the occupation is printing candal about people who no nut cowardly enough to pay for sul nceverv dayhe slta upon the bench is a disgnwM to th State that endures him Justice Deuel waelWs tfc Jli Mrt witnMii uthl IJM dltwtj lI L IllWrJJ f it was brought

the city that ho had transacted business for these notorious enterprises while actually sitting in his physical capacity us a judge on the bench As the trial progressed it developed into an Investigation that revealed dirty state of affairsor rather a bad case of blackmail pursued by the editors and publishers of Town Topics So strong was the evidence that Norman Htpgood Editor of Colliers and defendant In the case was promptlyacquitted One strange feature of the trial was the exalted position all the parties held the plaintiff really became defendant the testimoiy of the pros ecutor District Attorney Jerome and his approbation of Mr Hapgood the evidence shwing the longand systematic course of blackmail pur sued by Town Topics The revelations in this particular case are in line with the revelations of the great insurance cases It also shows a great moral laxity in the exclusive circles of Gotham ho v wealthy society people tamelysu mitted to being held up for years the payment of large sums of money by prominent financiers and society traders to escape being pilloried in that scandalmongering sheet It is indeed a shocking commentary the social conditions existing In the American metropolis Town Topics it seems did not profit so much from what it printed but from what it suppressed It seems almost Incredulous that such black mailing tactics as the paper pursued for a long series of years would be tolerated by Its victims It seems almost impossible Yet when we take into consideraton the large number whowero willing to pay to nave their doings suppressed and not made the subject of public discussion we read ilyrecall the stinging commentaries made by Col Henry Watterson on the Four Hundred But after the Hap good libel suit it must be admitted that Marse Henri who weilds a tren chant pan fell far short of the real factsThe exposures made during this trial is only added evidence of the fact that something is radically wrongand that something radical must be done to clear the financial and social atmosphere if the country is to prosper and not sink in to the depths of moral degradation We doff our hats to Colliers Weekly because it has performed a distinct favor to icputable newspapers and the general public by exposing the dis reputable policy pursued by Town Topics and calling pubic attention to the contaminating phase of social and financial conditions existing in the metropolis of our beloved country No Smaller Crop The time for preparing tobacco beds for the coming season Is beingconsid ered and so far as we can learn there Is little

rupturing the shell Wipe off the egg that runs out and bind a handkerchief or soft cloth around the linger or thumb leaving the egg on over night This will generally cure in one application Doing

Leader concerning the recent Investigation of the city records Mr W A Garland ol Lexington his sudden stoppage by the City we Council lied Editor Lender The interview pub lisned in Thursdays Leader with a dll prom nent gentlemen mond regarding the sudden 8tOpa6eat the expert investigation of our city own calls for some criticism in the interest oldie facts In the first place and there were any grounds for sweeping charges of corruption grafth rottenness 1 think the niuler nigned would certainly have been made aware of it through the account cast who mad this investigation That gentleman Mr W A Garland of LexInut progressed sufficiently in his investigation to warrant an charges against anybody and ha announced to all WhO questioned His very sensible reply was that thewould not for his right arm cast a cloud of suspicion upon any officer without the most conclusive and in controvertible proofthat mere suspi Con unsupported by bald facts would warrant him in making rash charges for which he might be person held responsible Therefore in the unfinished state of investigation stopped so suddenly ed time Council he would not dare even to appease the most rabbid accuser in put any mans character in jeopardy Sensible men endorse this prudent course time Mr Garlards report therefore was simply what I have endeavored to de scribe a proper refusal to give out that might later upon ma sure investigation prove to be unfounded untrue and unjust to innocent lIIen- What Ua prominent gentleman said time about wholesale graft etc is not based ed the report of Mr Garlands investigation That eentleman is doubtless responsible for his own utterances But I do not think it just to the ex officials whom the gentleman broadly to permit the inference to go unanswered tbat if there be any grounds for such accusations they weie not brought to light by the Investigation the reasons given that ere was no to make such charges iir ad vance of the complete investigation leaving nothing to guesswork or to doubtI Mr Garland performed the best work upon our books such as he had to work upon He would finally have evolved a safe and sane system of municipal accounting which would have been adapted to all cities of the fourth class in Kentucky the most pressing need of today But time dUll culties in the way of his rapid progress upon incomplete records a condition of affairs not peculiar to Richmond C and the expense attendant upon his work 2 per hour led the Council to call the investigation oft in the interest of public economy a reason which I am frank to say I do not endorse and which 1 do not believe the majority of our laipayers endorse Nevertheless the four Councilmen present in theirs wisdom saw fit to take that yiew and Mr Garland promptly acquitted them of any other motive than the most honorable in which I fully concur It waa therefore simply a question of expense and not the slightest reflection upon the accountant that moved the Council to call a halt It was at this stage that Mr Garland announced he could make ifo report and I see no need of ascribing to his dismissal either a fear ot uncovering corruption or a reflection noon his ability- I regret time stoppagtof tIme work 11I it did not lead to anything more than the recnvrry of lislE a thousand dollars overlooked uncollected licenses and to the installation of a modern system of bookkeeping it
