In Springfield and Adopt Resolutions Meeting One t f the Most Enthusiastic Ever Held In SpringfieldAddress By Hon WC McChord One of the most enthusiastic gatherings ever witnessed in Springfield was that of the burley tobacco growers at the court house Monday afternoon At this meeting one thing was clear ly and emphatically demonstrated and that is that the farmers of Washington ounty stand ready to join with the farmers of the burley district to make a battle royal for the organization of the Growers Company Perhaps there are some people who believe that the ardor ofthe friends and promoters of this organization was dampened by the recent failure tosecure the money to finance the crop of i904If there were such persens in the meeting at the court house here Monday afternoon they were undoubtedly relieved of this belief The enthusiasm was genuine and clearly showed that Washington county farmers are determined to piish the burley growers organization to a successfu11inishThe was called to order by Mr wlA Clements Chairman Board of Control for Washington coun ty who stated the object of the meet ing Mr Frank Head was chosen Sec ret after which Hon W C Mc Chord addressed the large audience- He made a strong speech one which pleased his hearers He told of the work which had boa done by the friends of the tobacco growers in their efforts to organize their company andI explained to the audience how nearly the company had several times been successful in perfecting its organization only to meet with defeat through the trickery and schemings of the TO- bacco and Standard Oil trusts He told how the emissaries of Wall Street threatened to damn every man who of fered aid to the farmers and how one plan after another failed to bring to theI growers company the money with which to complete the organization During his speech Mr McChord referred to the fact that the tobacco trust paid con siderable more money this year forbur ley tobacco than it did last year not withstanding the yield was much larger He said that this increase in price was due to the agitation of the organization of the Growers Company and predicted that if the farmers did not continue the fight the price of tobacco would fall considerably below the profitable point as it did last season The audience listened attentively to his remarks and many times he was interrupted by an applause which made the old court room ring At the conclusion of his speech Mr McChord asked all who r were in favor of continuing the fight for organization to rise to their feet every man in the building arose When ti the audience was seated he requesfed all who opposed any further efforts to organize the company to raise then bands Not a hand went up Itwas suggested that it would be c necessary to raise a fund with which to defray the expenses of those who are to look after the interests of the r burley growers in Washington county and in Jess than twenty minutes contributions amounting to about 500 were subscribed This alone is proof that the farmers of this county are not en tertaining an idea of flickering or dal lying about what course they are pursue in the future They are into the fight to win and they are going to win They are not going to be discouraged by the recent outcome of mat ters failure seems to have made them more determined The meeting here Monday afternoo was merely a beginning of another ef fort of the farmers to perfect an organization which will guarantee to them a T fair and living rick for their tobacco They will be successful the money of the tobacco and Standard Oil trust to the contrary notwithstanding Mark our words The Treasurer for Washington coun ty and Assistant Treasurer of each of the ten districts of the county will be selected and appointed at an early date RESOLUTIONS The following resolutions were adopt ed by the tobacco growers of Washing ton county We the GrowerSof Burley Tobacco of Washington County Kentucky in Mass Convention assembled condemn the laws enacted by the Congress of the United states whereby the Growers of tobacco are deprived of the right to prepare the products of their labor so that it may be sold direct to the consumer thus directly fostering the Tobacco Trust and empowering it to arbitrarily fix the price of every pound of tobacco grown without gard to its real value We have long since ceased to hope for relief at the hands of the law mak ing department of the government and now deplore existing conditions whereby the Managers of the Tobacco Trust have the power to prevent any amendment of the laws of the United States whereby the Trust will be deprived of the power to oppress the people and we realize that the only means left to us to cope with the Trust is to secure a compact organization of the Growers of Burley Tobacco We condemn the unlawful methods practiced by the American Tobacco Company and its allies the managers of the Standard Oil Company by which g they defeated the efforts of the Officers of the Burley TobaccoGrowers Compa ny to secure money with which to pay the Growers a fair price for Burley tobacco grown in 1904 We appreciate the efforts of the few men lead by W B Hawkins of Lexington Ky who have labored faithfully during the last twelve months to per feet the plans of the Burley Tobacco Growers Company which if successful would have permanently established a fair price for the tobacco and which price prevailed as long as it was uncer tain as to whether or not they would accpmplish their purpose We are aware that it now depends upon the will of the Managers of the American Tobacco Company as to whether or not these prices will be maintained as that Company is now incomplete control of the market for the crop of 1904 If they are not maintained it will be convincing proof that the efforts of the Burley Tobaccq Growers Company to purchase the crop of 1904was the sole cause of the advance in price of Burley tobacco from the time the market opened for the crop ofJ1904 until the efforts of the Managers of the Burley Tobaccd Growers Compa ny were defeated the unlawful interference of the Tobacco TrusteTherefore Resolved That W B Hawkins and his associates be and they are hereby directed to profit by their experience and with renewed en ergy and zeal to continue their efforts to organize the Burley Tobacco Grow ers Company and to secure thecooper ation of every grower and thereby con trol the crop of Burley tobacco to be = grown in 1905 To assist them in their great work we offer them the control of our crops to be grown during the present year and pledge them such necessary material aid as may be in our power to effect a coffiplete organization of all the Growers of Burley Tobacco and to aid in accomplishing the purposes That the Chairman of this convention be and he is hereby di rected to appoint a Treasurer for Wash reasurerforington county whose duty it shall be to receive from the Growers money suf ficient to defray Washington countys portion of necessary expenses of the Managers of the Burley Tobacco Growers Company incident to making the or ganization proposed RESOLVED further that a copy of these proceedings be furnished by the Secretary of this Convention to the int0that they be urged to call Mass Convention and take similar actions in their respective Counties that the Managers of the Burley Tobacco Growers Compa ny may understand that they will have thej hearty cooperation of very grower of Burley tobacco in their efforts to unlawfulnmethods of the Tobacco Trust WOODSON HATCHEIT

the article on Kentuckys Natural Curiosities etc has just been read to me If you will allow me a column in your paper I will remind your readers that the people of Washington county have some historic andL prehistoric remainsspecimens the Mound Builders bivery e south east corner of the place on which Judge Andrew Thompson built a beau tiful home about twenty fiv years ago begins a graded road following the course of the hill down the stream its o waters edge at a point below where Mr Tom Nicholas barn stood This graded roadway is4 from twenty to thirty feet broad descending from the highlands with theurve of the hill down to the river this road is threequarters of a mile in length and is overgrown with Beech trees some of which were twenty years ago a yard across the stump giving unmistakable testimony to the fact that the grade must have been made long before any white man visited this country Prof J Lewis Howe now of shi- ngton Lee University Virginia and Prof Simpson Roberts of Springfield accompanied me and my son J N Saunders and a couple of colored men withaxe and pick to make ail ex amination We took with us a theodo lite level and chain and surveyed three hundred yards of it We found the grade of uniform rate my recollection is that it was less than seventy feet to the mile We Satisfied ourselves With out digging that it had never been a pavedway as weather washes had cut through it in several places We made diligent search and inquiry for evident that there had existed an Indian town on the highlands from where the road way starts down to the river but found neither evidence nor tradition support ing such a conjecture On the top of the hill west of the turnpike about halfway between the ends of the grade there had stood tw mounds or heaps of water worn stones thrown loosely togetherL when first known about twentyfive feet across the base and twenty feet high These mounds stood close together about twenty feet apart and thirty or forty steps from the turnpike In the neighborhood of one hundred yards south of them towards the old Nichols house an earthen breastwork had been thrown up running from the brow of the hill on the east to the head of a ravine coming from the westward From that field through which the earth work manrstones arrow heads spear heads and Indian axes I had at one time quite a number Some of them I sent to the cabinet of Central University at Richmond Ky and still a greater number aril in a private collection at Clarks- ville Tenn At an early day the presence of then founds excited quite a curiosity and some of the neighbors determined lbofi o into them and see what they might find One of the investigating parties was James Ewing lather of John Jim and Ben another his soothedrer on the branch northwest of Milton Rogers Prof Howe and J N Saunders visited Mr Hughes the only une living at the time Ihave men statte ment as to opening mo Mr Hughes was known to be a perfectly truthful and reliable man His statement was to this effect They found a number of human bones skulls upper jaws and teeth but no lower jaws upper aVm bones but no lower arm bones or hands thigh bones but no lower leg bones or feet They were greatly puzzled by the findandd conjectured that they were theremajns of Indians who hadbeen killed in a Batt leawhich had raged around the breast works near by an d that the bodies had been mutilated I suppose Prof Howe yet has statement given by Mr Hughes wrote me some years after we made the investigation enclosing a newspaper clipping giving an account of the opening of just such a loose stone mound somewhere in Alabama made by ethnological explorers under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institute Washington D C They report having found in the Alabama mow human bones of lower jaws lower arms lower legs just the bones which were absent in the Beech Fork mound Hughesdtogether to await developments which might explain the mystery Prestence of the Mound Builders in Wash ington county which I ever met with Wildon Y Thompson I think over northeast from my friend Dan McIlvoys There were several earth mounds there from five to seven feet high I think Tom Reed and I together saw them once J Your readers will not understand me as that the loose stone JhumanIndian war implements had anything to j do with the Mound Builders These were evidences of a battle fought pro ably ages after thegradedway on the hillside was constructed The Mound Builders and Indians were very different peoples The Indians came i in possession of this country centuries j

265Breckinridge 278 Gallatin 274 Green 274 Hardin 279 LaRue 277 Oldham 279 Owen 270 Pentleton 279 Powell 279 Pulaski 279 Simpson 278 Trimble 275 an average in these counties of about 275 This is brought about by having so many small dis tricts with less than forthfive pupils each in a few instances the number being as low as eighteen pupils Ii some counties nearly five hundred fats pupils are added to make the small districts reach fortyfive At this rate a teacher ina district with fortyfive pupils received 12375 for six months work Had there been no false pupils in the county she would have received 13275 for teaching the same number of pupils the same time a district of one hundred pupils the would have received 295 instead of 275 for six months work making adifference in theformer

week passed without a dissenting vote a bill to give a pension of 30a month to an exUnited States Senator who was ruined andreduced to absolutely poverty because he would not vote to convict President Andrew Johnson He is Edmund G Ross then a Republican Senator from Kansas He was one of the little band of Republicans who stood out against the furious clamor of that time defied their party and voted according to theiiL convic tions For this Ross lost his seat in the Senate The subscribers to his news papers stopped their subscriptions the advertisers withdrew their advertisements he was boycotted and driven out of society His old acquaintances cut Him dead Even the dogs I used to know wont let me pat their heads said he Forced out of business and unable to get employment he had to lea Kansas but could not get employment any where He is now eightytwo years of age and for ten years he has been earning a living by sticking type in country printing offices in New Mexico The bill to pension him was introduced by Delegate Rodey of New Mexico and pushed through by him and Representative Calderhead of Kansas It will undoubtedly pass the Senate Itis ostensibly based on the fact that Ross was

of a race they looked upon as enemies yet their chief Palpak treated these men as friends Palpak was a chief who gave no explanations of his acts and when he demanded horses for himself his brothers and his friends they were at once forthcoming Domitan the brother who had been so eager to kill Palpak was morose and showed but little favor to the guests The latter confident that their plans would be successful treated him considerately They thought not of robIescort a country from which few travelers had ever return ed The moving power was love and love laughs at danger From the village a winding path led from the low shore land to a distant9 range of hulls Along this their prog ress was rapid but arriving at the bills they found a rugged rocky road over which traveling was slow The small horses of the Zannucks were turdy animals and went unshod over the jagged stones that covered the nar row path- Tbe natives stared at them In amazement A Russian officer in uniform accompanying their chief on terms of friendship was a scene they had never contemplated Some thought Orskoff was a prisoner though he did not act like one Harvey seemed actually to be the leader Hidden among great knolls and sequestered in fertile valleys were little villages seemingly devoted to peaceful pursuits Flocks of the world famous sheep the skins of whose lambs are sent to Persia where they are made Into garments or cured and sent to browsingJAll the herdsmen bore arms One would have a rifle another wore a belt In which two or three pistols were thrust some carried the old time spear Their garb

two but they must be lasht s Toned by the hand of man to suit the purpose of defense The reason is not that nature is grudging said Harvey It is that man is so stubborn that he establishes his cities in places where they can be established Natures fortifications are in places where no one ever wants to- go Except ourselvesat the present time Hello There is a big town They had reached a high point in the road and looked down a sloping stretch Into a valley where a town was laid out that called forth exclamations from both Amid green arid luxurious sur soundings on the banks of a little river

another hundred under Domitan these being divided the same wayHarvey had never experienced so dif ficult a ride At times they seemed on the verge of going over a cliff and hurling theinselVes a

mountains I wouldnt like to do this for a liv ing saidj Harvey 1 prefer to sell windmlllsj This is real mountaineering an swered Orsicpff But their eyes did not meet as they spoke for Harvey who was ahead did not dare to turn his head In crossing table lands theytraveled In sections and Domitan often came up and spoke to Palpak He had lost none of his surliness Harvey could not understand why Palpak so easily for gave theiimin who wanted to kill him Orskoff explained that he had talked with the captains and learned that Domitan was much admired for his many exhibitions of bravery It is a good thing for us that Domi tan is riot chief said Orskoff He hates us ijarely They camped at night In a ravine and the cocks of the companies pre pared d meal consisting mainly ot- a sort Pi cake and coffee After par taking of a goodly quantity Orskoff and Hanvey lay down near Palpak and went to sleep In the morning rerreshed the caval cade set out and passed another day In even more difficult traveling An other night they camped on an open field and on the third day they came to rest on a cUff overlooking theSl loon pass CHAPTER XX L THE ATTACK ON TilE CARAVAN 00 Jy the morning after waiting and watching all night the caravan was discovered slowly making Its way along the pass Palpak called Harvey and Ors koff to him at the edge of the cliff We will attack the caravan in this way hesajd My men are now di vided and onehalf is under my broth er Domitan who is very Brave and a good officer His section will go up the pass to head off the camels If they bolt and run beyond our reach My own section will attack at this spot You will be with me I should say so said Harvey We want toibe in this business from start to finish But It would be safer to remain hid den It would be impossible Orskoff is a fighting man and would not remain Idle while his sweetheart is in dan ger I am not a fighting man but I could not remain in hiding while you were fighting for the girl I love Domitan came up It will be well for us to plan my brother he said The caravan will soon be here n We have already planned said Palpak sternly You will take your men farther up the pass Lie In wait there If the camels bearing the young women escape youcan capture them will remain hee and attack Heretofore I have been asked fn Councils said Domitan surlily You will obey said Palpak It Is evident said Harvey to Ors t lioff that though he forgives hero es not forget Domitan soon had his men underway They took a winding path through time woods leading to the pass t I trust there will be aslittle blood shed as possible said Harvey to Pal We Want to get the girls Lilt d01no1 wish to commit unnecessary These soldiers simplyare obeying orders as your own men are doing We will save your women but the rest of tin matter must be left to u I see by the size of thecaravau that there is much treasure i The caravan came on Riding ahea t was an officer of the ameer in brilliaut twentyhorstnumtwo

Tlmelicame twenty more horsemen a string of camels and mules bearing merchandise of all kinds and hHses on which rode Turkish Persian und Hebrew merchants Silently Palpak led his men down a steep timid difficult pith They waited in hiding till the head of the caravan was opposite A peculiar cr from Palpak sent them dashing into the road Palpaks men had left their horses above on the cliff and were at a tlisadvantaxe but they outnumbered the Bokhnrans At the first volley three of the ameers soldiers fell from their horses A terrific outcry followed but the officer In command was brave and calm and soon rallied them They formed in a circle around the camels bearing the two girls while the merchants und the camels bearing their goods scuttled for safety Palpal rallied his men anti led thin In a ferocious onslaught b steadyI The iron arms of the American were 1around his neck fire from the mounted riflemen of the am er sent a dozen of them to the ground Palpak shouted out his commands and formed his men for a rush but the anieers men were first and the horses came dashing upon the Zan nucks For a time It looked like a vie tory for the Bokharans Orskoff and Harvey were compelled to run aside when the ameers horsemen came upon them The battle of the ameers men was being waged chiefly by the officer In command who seemed not to know the word fear and who seemed to be impervious to bullets Mounted on a fine horse he led every charge Harvey saw that so long asthe Bokharans were InspIrQd by this officer they were well high invincible He watched bis chance to cope with the commander In per sonAt list It came The officer In mak Ing a dash through the forces of the Zannucks was beset by several of them with spears He brought his horse suddenly to a halt tried to swerve and the horse came down al most on his haunches With a quick leap Harvey sprang upon the horse behind the officer Spears about to be hurled were lowered and the men stood In amazement The officer tried uto turn to reach Harvey with his sword but the iron arms of time American were around his neck and he was soon clokedlnto submission With a shout of victory Harvey hurled him to the groundNow Palpak Now he cried and with a rush the Zaimucks attacked again Their onslaught was so fero cious that the soldiers of the ameer fled along the pass to be met by Doml tan with the remaining hundred Victory cried Harvey Victory He sped to the camels as did Ors koff and at the commandd of Koura who could manage the beasts the cam els knelt Alma and Koura were soon In their lovers arms My darling My darling You are saved cried Harvey The Bokha rans have been defeated They would not have been said Orskoff but for the brains of your 1How Bokharan soil against the command of the czar my captain asked Koura To save you my sweet one fto save the girl I love I learned my duty from the American So absorbed were they in their greet ings that a cry from the Zannucks did not reach them
