for the purpose of attending the speaking Judge Thurman discussed every phase of the whisky question and is said to have captivated his hearers with his eloquent and earnest appeals in behalf of the cause ot temperande The gentleman who talked to us over the telephone said it was the greatest speech ever delivered in the Bardstown court house Judge Thurman is a great speaker he is a great roan and there are few just like him He has a warm place in the hearts of the people of this county and they are proudof him He is endowed witha wonderful intellect He is a game tighter an untiring worker and whenhe believes he is right he goes in to win and he bias never failed to carry off the trophies Spme of the most effective work done during the campaign just closed is charged up to Revs Williams

delivered from a Springfield pulpit During tht last week of th6 campaign Eld Walden did very effective work ithe northern section of the county and his sermon on last Sunday morning at the Christian church herea sort of a thanksgiving talk was beauti ful There are few better speakers or more earnest workers in Washington county than Rev Purdom and he never missed an opportunity to strike a lick He is a man who wields a Wonderful influence over all people Eld Ezra Sutherland whose instructive and interesting articles have appeared from time to time in The Sun is also entitled to much credit for the good work hedid One of the lengthy articles he prepared for The Sun jis now being used in other fields where local option fights are being made The pictures jn last weeks issue of the Dadd

was a day that will long be remembered The majority for local option in the 792iThe election passed off quietly in ev ery precinct and early in the day the voting was brisk In the orthernsec tibrof the county quite a large num voters arrived at the polls top lath to cast their vote3 a severe storm haying passed through that section in the afternoon We are informed that at Willisburg alone from sixty to sev entyfive voters arrived at the voting place after the polls had beeen closed At Mackville about 25 voters came in too late At Hendren Brush Grove- and the North the same thing occurred Hardly without an exception these were local option votesNOTES Mackville is the banner precinct She gave a majority of 234 the whisky folks receiving just sixteen votes Of course thats not quite unanimous u but it is whatmight be correctly called by acclamation You see Mackville is a local option precinct and she hadIa right to do things emphati cally Pottsville came to the front with 170 majority therefore she takes next place to head Willisburg with 154 majority has a right to be proud fher record Tom Miller claims that had that seventyfive voters been a little earlier Willisburg would have crowded Mackville for first place The North 115 And that was great but no sur prise for the boys were determined And next came Hendren with 118 majority clean and clearcut Kellys Shop 103

gave a majority of 187 fo whiskya few less you observe than 500 Frederickstown gave 95 for whis ky but a mathematical calculation you will find that there is some little differ ence between 95 and 200 The boys in every section of the county did good work They never became weary but covered the ground com pletely never halting in the work till the evening shadows gathered on last Saturday May the

the way we have been told by quite a number that the speech he deliv ered at Willisburg on last Wednesday night was one of the best heard in that section during the campaign Nelsqn county voters should bear in mind thatth polls open at 6 oclock in the morning and close at 4 in the afternoon On last Saturday 200 or25o local option votes arrived at the polls too late t vote Let Nelson county voters remember The Sun was a little surpiised over the majority for local option in this county on last Saturday More than once we predicted 1000 majority through these columnsand we believed that majority would be given Polls Close at 4 p m j AN INCORRECTSTATEMENT In the Daddy less Herald By Judge Jno S Kelly I Ythch He Will Doubtless Correct When He Finds That He Is Mistaken We have before us a circular letter headed Read this Carefully a Phase of Prohibition You May Not Have Con sideredThis circular letter is addressed toj the Editor of the Nelson County Herald and has the name of John S Kelly signed to it The substance of the letter it is too lengthy toj reproduce is that if local option is willPbe any one to an other a drink of spirituous vinous or malt liquJrsin Nelson county or to procure fop or furnish to another such writer quotes subsection 2 of Sec 2557 B Ky Statues which reads as follows persontoto another any spirituous vinous or malt liquors for the purpose of selling them in any terrltorywhere said act is in force any person so offending shall be fined not less than fifty nor more than one hundred dollars and imprisoned not less than tei nor more than fifty days The writer then continues plainltistoxicating liquor to another in a local option as it is to sell it And the man who gives a drink t9 another thera a quart of whisky and is subject to the thanrty jail for not less than ten days It is as much a violation of the law to pro optionand it is equally a violation of the law to furnish same to another in such ter ritory front whatever place the party so furnished the liquor may pro cured it Wecan hardly believe that Judge Kelly wrote this article for it certain ly could not have escaped the notice of so good a lawyer as hethat the Court of Appeals in an opinion renderedon Nov 20 1903 held that the section above quoted refers only to a person who shall sell lend give procure for or furnish to another liquors TO BE SOLD BY HIM It is not an offense to GIVE liquor to another under the Statute unless it is given with the in tennt or purpose that it is to be SOLD by the person to whom it is given in territory Where local option is In force It is sufficient answer to the article to give the decission of the Court of Appeals above referred to which is found in 76 Southwestern Reporter page 1084 The case went up from Green county and the opinion was rendered by Judge Settle We feel assured th tall who read this opinion will be convinced of Judge Kellys error The opinion is as plain as words can make it and is absolutely conslusiveIf Kelly really did write the article for the Daddyless Heraldand- we are almost persuaded that he did notwe are quite sure he overlooked this decissionj and we believe when his attention is colled to it he will retract his statement He owes that much to the people We give the decission in full as fql lows COMMONWEALTH vs DICKERSON Court of Appeals of Kentucky Nov 201903 INTOXICATING LIQUORSLOCAL OPTION GIFT OF LIQUOR Appeal from Circuit Court Green County Not to be officially reported Indictment of John W Dickerson for giving spirituous liquor to another Froma judgment of acquittal the coin monwealth appeals Affirmed Clifton J Pratt and M R Todd for theCommonwealth SETTLE J The appellee John W Dickerson was indicted in the Green circuit court for giving spirituous liq uor to another in a local option district the charge in the indictment being that procurefororfurnish spirituous or vinous liquor in a local option when the local option law was then In full force and effect In the trial of the appellee under the indictment the only witness introduced was Ed Handy who testified that in November 1902 in the town of Greens burgthe appellee gave him a drink Of x whisky he being at the time 21 years of aeandnot an inebriate It was admitted that the town of Greensburg was in a local option at the time Upon the conclusion of the evi dence the appellee moved the court top remtoril instruct the ry to find hIm not guilty which motion was sus peremtoryinstructIongiven cquittalThegrantingthean appeal to this court WhICh was granted appealforoptionlawdrink of spirituous vinous or malt liquor in territory where that law is in force It is contended for the common wealth that the appellee was guilty of a violation of Option law as amended by the act of 11 1902 Acts 1902 p 41 c 14 The only provision of that law which makes it an offense oougive to another spiritu ous vinous or malt is found in section 2 wherein it is declared that it shallbe unlawful for any person to sell lend give procure for or furnish to another any spirtuous vinous ox malt 1i tiors or to have in his posses liquorsforterritory where said act is in force and any person so offending shall be fined not less than 5000 nor more than 100 00 and imprisoned not less than ten nor more than fifty days In Huyser v Commonwealth 76 S W174 this court in construing certain provisions of the act of March 11 1902 said of section 2 It will be observed that the object of the foregoing section is not the punishment of the who himself sells or otherwise disposes of spirituous vinous or malt liquors where local option is in force for his punishment is provided for b section act but its object is the punishment of the person who shall procure for or furnish to another such liquors to be sold by the latter where option is in force or for having in his the formers own possession such liquors for the of selling them in the forbidden territory it is manifest however that the gift to another of spirituous vinous or malf liquor in local option ia giveRbeunder section 2 of the act supra unless it be made with the intent or purpose that it is to be sold by the person to i whom it is given in territory where givenwithpl te even though the place of givingI- S outside ot the territory where local- option obtains As further said in Huy ser v Commonwealth suprauSec tion 5 takes the place of sec tion 4 of the original act and its object is the punishment of any person who sells local option is in force Its language embraces any sale barter or loan of spirituous vinous or malt liquors that may be directly or indirectly made within the inhibited territory This section also makes it knowinglyfurnish or other conveyance or thing in which such liquors are sold bartered or loaned And the punishment prescribed for the offenses named in this section is a fine of not less than 60 nor more than imprisonment in jail of not lessthan ten nor more than fifty days or both fine and imprisonment in the discretion of the court or jury Though the language of section 5 makes it unlawful for one torsellfl barter or loan spirituous vinous or malt liquors in territory where local option is in force it does not make it an offense for one to give to another such liquors in the territory mentioned The evidence in this case shows that appelleeoption district but was only a drink It follows therefore that the mal r court did not err in giving the per iii tory instruction Wherefore the judgment is affirmed ROGERS GORE Will Not be a Candidate Kentucky Standard Mi Wallace Brown who has been a rostiv

incident occurred here yesterday afternoon which illustrated in a very striking manner the heroism of a little boy and at the same time the recklessness bt one who by reason of his years ought to haye acted differently A young man named Wilson and wholesale drug house started here in a buggy yesterday afternoon from Eliza bethtown Arriving at the Hayes ford near Fd Pattersons they found it very flush by reason of the heavy rain fall of a few hours before The little boy driver said to Wilson that the creek was too deep to venture to cross and refused to attempt it Snatching the whip and reins from the boy Wilson gave the horse a sharp cut with the whip and plunged into the creek Be ing stranger he was unfamiliar With the crossing and instead of entering the creekatthe usual place of fording he soon found himself in water several feet deep his buggy upset and horse himself and the driver struggling to save themselves from drowning It seems that Wilson couldnt swim but his little

There was the jolly laughter and banter mingling wit the quick crack of the guns the thud of soft bodies against the mellow ground and the flutter of wings It was great sport Many a dove that bad started across the field with the sp ed of a rocket had cjome tumbling thro gh the air to find a place in my hunters bag How fu tile their dashes and swirls before my unerring aim How helpless their swift wings to save them I gloated over each successive fall Qver each little life cut shortover each fluttering protest against the tyranny of might The lust of blood was upon me the savage had asserted itself and reveled in death Ah such is man and such is sport Wearied with the carnival of fear and pain and death proud of the de struction I had wrought I trudged home to boast of my prowess III f The twilight shadows were falling I had exhibited my birds received congratulations of my sportsmen friends rested up a bit eaten my sup per and now sat on my portico with the odor of the grass and flowers com ing up to me on the cool languid breeze A katydid chirped now and then and a cricket trilled backt I felt satisfied with the world quIet- ly happy and mused in a dreamy poetic mood The savage hadsubsided the riotous blood had cooled Suddenly their came across the dusky air a plaintive oh so plaintive Whooo p oo whoo whoOj whoo My heart stood still Some poor dove lost in the darkness calling for its mate How like a human tone of gen tle oooo whoo whoo Oh how much of loneliness in those tones How that poor little creatures heart must have throbbed with the agony of fright all day while the guns blazed Who knows how many weary miles it has flown searching for that companionthat noble and innocent birdwhose graceful flight I had cut crueltyWhoooo like a heartbroken widows wail

construction department of the Superlor Western railroad had de tided to sink a spar deep into the body of the woods and connect Ar cher with Turtle Junction Dunham the gray old Umber fox that had charge of that bureau sent for the representatives of the Badger Lumber company and of Findlay Brother Cardiff and Findlay the rep resentatives came the next morning to Dunhams office Now boys he said as the rivals glowered at each other through the smoke fog seeing that we are all here together we might as well drop sentiment and have a little medicine talk The S W wants those ties at bedrock price and it wants them as soon as man can deliver them What are your figures Cardiff Thirty thousand dollars said Cardiff as he thieved a quick glance at his rival from across the Manlto wishIAnd yours John Twentyfive thousand Then Ill call it wentyfiye thou sand too responded Cardiff prompt ly Externally Du ham remained cool but internally he was aglow with a warm glad smile Well I guess thd price is near enough right boys if we can only deliverythat time is the essence of this con tract When can ydu deliver those ties in our yards at Archer Mr Car duff The black brows of tjhe Badger representative contracted Us he gazed deep into the silent woods Between April 1st and 10th depending on how soon the breakup comes Findlay sat looking at them in grim silence and Dunham after giving him plenty of time in witch to make a bid husked a dry cough from his voice and went on thoughtfully 1 Pretty late but I dont suppose I can ask you to deliver them by airship at those figures Our minds have met as to the price and df course which one of you gets the contract makes no difference to me But inasmuch as Mr Cardiff spoke first and 1 tr Findlay cant better the bid I suppose I might as well let Cardiff 1Hold onbroke In Findlay as his thrust itself out If I give you a 50000 bond that I will deliver those ties at Archer March 1st 30 days before Mr Cardiffs date do I get contract atI Dunham glanced at Cardiff and diff staring stupidly at his rival said nothing at all So presently Dunham answered yes and at that word Findlay arose So with that the incident ended and John Findlay strode away as many an other victor has done his heart thump ing triumphantly and tics brain sick with fear Long and bitter had been the fight that he and his half invalid brother Joe had waged in those cold north woods and to lose out now spelled ruin just as their star of hope was Rising brightly above the horizon Of course there is only one way to carry out that contract Joe said John and that Is to build an ice road from Camp 3 to Archer When I fixed the date with Dunham I thought you and I could figure out a route through this swamp and ridge country but It seems that we cant make good And there is only one man I know who can andhe Is James Livingston Flint White Horse we used to call himand of course as our luck would have it he is way up In Alaska country somewhere But Im going after him Ill be back before the first of December and Ill bring hint with me alive if possible but anyway Ill bring him Id rather have Flint dead than any other man in the pin eries alive So that night John Findlay packed his grip and departed for the white land It was way out Semlnow way that Findlay found his man White Horse built theroad in a lit tIe less thin three weeks but he only slept on an average of four hours a night while he did it As for the men who worked under him during that frenzied period they cursed him whit out intermission while the work was going on and are still bragging about having had hand andf ootin it Of course it seems incredible but it is astonishing how much 70 harddriven men and 20 good teams can do in three weeks when they Work 18 hours a day The road was finished oni the 24th or December and it Was a good thing to look atjChristmas came clear and bitterly cold Heavy feet brunched the brittle snow without the took shop of iamp3 and at the first sound White Horse thrust a heavy automatic pistol into his pocket and then leaned In dolently against the logs with his hands buried deeply in his pocket The next instant the door was burs- open and in lurched a body of woods men who crowding into the corners of the cabin left the center of the floor empty while Lebeau who led them stepped forward and spoKe Bah you man from Chill Cat Like a dog you work us in ze cJDld to mak ze cursed ice road Like a loup garou you drive us and swing your canthook when ze moon shjne Come you every man follow along with meJ Joe Lebeau and I will show you joy We will drink we will dance we will mjike ridicule Come wits Joe Lebeau swaggeredhisheard them go roaring down the ice road with nearly the whole camp en train And as the last yell died away the forehead of the walking boss wrinkled like a pool into which a pebble is tossed and tense lines bound his lips closely together For he well knew that once fairly started on a big drunk his crew would scatter from the Soo to Stur geon bay and every days time was priceless to him now with the driving work that lay before him The crisis had come and White Horse arising walked to the window stood mood- yfl staring into the silent woods Within the log saloon six miles down the road the noise of the revelry arose in ever increasing volume The door of the hack suddenly opened and the tall orm of White Horse towered before them Calmly but with each word forceful as a bullet White Horse spoke gottoyou must get back to camp while you are able to walk Ipbeen a patient man today but my limit Now clean out of here before I clean you Sullenly they turned upon him shifting on their feet and glancing at each other uneasily And seeing their doggedness an ominous glitter HELD A FLAMiNO MATCH ABOVE IT suddenly caxe Into the gray orbs of the boss and roughly he shouldered his way to the back of the shack an- drew a small cylinder prom his pocket Dynamite cartridge with a twomin ute tail he said as he sat It upon the wood box and he d a flaming match above it You want to dance and figh some more doyou Well unless yo hike out bf here youll all be doing quickstep tonight for the devil No man knew just how far Whit- Horse would go In the enforcement an order and now none waited to se Struggling cursing roaring they rough thei way out of the door and went swarming down the track while the boss extinguishing the fuse stepped threwIhowling insanely The afternoon sun sank until it seemed to rest on the tops of the western forest like a broad gold piece poised delicately And the walking boss aris ing from a log beside his cutter where he had sat for an hour following the rout lImbed up to the seat Backialong the rough woods trail he went until the gleaming ice road lay before him then turned upon it As his halfgalloping ponies swung around a bend of the forest road they suddenly arose upon their hind ie with wild pawings at the air Less tha a dozen yards in front of them and ly lug flat upon his back on the ice was the first of the fallen that White Horse had feared would litter the homeward route The legs of the lumberjack kicked spasmodically and White Horse short ening his reins leaped to the ice Oant leave you here to freeze up solid i h grunted as he dumpefthe limp torn headlong into the sleigh box behind But Ill make you pay for this ride tomorrow At the next turn of the road the lipsIothers arms as they had gone sleep fighting were Jimmp Hard toot s and Ole Sawlog Along the next Jiun dred yards four more men were strew like skirmishers fallen In battle One byonethe walking boss labori ously raised them and piled them upon each other In the box wedging the last man firmly between the dashboard land the seat The moon sailed high and the black shadows of the forest lay heavily upon the clearings White Horse hurryjlng back from Camp 2 where he had tee n summoned to quell an incipient rio t dextthe door of the cook They are sleeping all right np Theyll be in fair shape to break t backs again tomorrow and most like ly they wont lick up another drop o firewater until after the drive Ih mttcepleasure in for them not muchnot muchiAnd this is how White Horse deliv ered an impossible contract for Findlay Brothers on time to the dot with scarce an hour to spare between success and a 150000 loss n STATE ODDS AND

story of either Distant Man or Bleeding Kansas tNo Dear Neighbor this is a story from home In olq Kentucky in Marion county closet our own Nelson county border are the twjo cities of Raywick and Chicago Have you been there You know all about them perhaps Perhaps you do not Their history is interesting and this tale is true Chicago Ky is surrounded at present by two distilleries and three saloons its very heart is pierced by the Atlanta division of theL N R RiTwo ger eral stores are trying to fjourish in competition with these three saloons and with healthy and vigorous growth of unincumbered Raywick and Loretto Last winter sometime in the month of February Chicago was without aj business house Two stores had previously closed out their business and discontinued and the two remaining were forced to close by theirjcreditors Butte saloons ran right on both night and day They furnished drink to the town ifihey could not furnish meat But while Chicago business men were carrying t4ii burden i of the open saloon that is supposed to make the town the little vi lag of Ray wick closed the door on hers The tax was too much for a town six miles from the railroad at their nearest shipping point so they got together and bade their saloons goodbye Then they fixed up the town a bit ana the merchants bought more goods then they built them a new store and a good one and had more competition among themselves but they all made money and their customers made money and then they built them a bank tot their surplus money in and today a six mile drive from the L N R R out of the little town of Chicago burdened with her three saloons will bring you to the happy and pros perous village of Raywi bankisine stores good roads genial merchants and a happy and contented people and all this has been brought about since Raywick voted out her saloons Read the statements of the business men of this town they are conservative statements from conservative men Should you ask these men personally about this matter they would tell you the same and very muchmore about the benefits local option has done them their town their business and their customers IeSunI was tJn

should ever be another contest the drys will beat this last majority r I have what you would call a general store handle everything the public needs and I find it much easier to sell goods here since the town went dry Some claim take liquor out and kill the town This is all rot We have the liveliest corpse you ever Saw I have strong competitors with more coming but I would rather have still more com petitors handling tie same lines Ido than be in business here with one sa 11rourWm Webster General Merchant Raywiclc Ky Aug 251906Editor 11anysince we voted out the saloons we had the saloons we had WhenII drummers and they were far Now they visit us regularly get a good business from our mer Chants Theywere afraid to come when we had saloonStoo much risk and too small a business We also had a lockup in town but Mr Webster one of our merchants has bought it and is using it for a coal house since we voted out the saloon 0 T Peterson Raywick Ky Aug 25 1906 Editor Sun Dear SirIhave been in business in Rawick for 15 yearn and have had experience on both sides of the wet and dry question In our first election we voted the saloon out as an experiment and carried the polls by only a small majority The next time we took the vote on the saloon question the town went dry by one vote more than three to one majority I will say that the town could never have made the progress it has with the saloon in iC Although we are six miles from the railroad and have to haul our goods we do ten times the amount of business of Chicago Ky our neighboring town which has three saloons two distill eries besides being located onia rail road I am for the dry town and advise Every merchant who doubts its benefit to try it once and be convinced Geo R Hutchins Raywick Ky Aug 251906Edito- rSunI can give you my opinion on local option mighty quick It has made this town of Raywick We wouldnot have saloons here again at any price or ander any conditions I wouldrather lave competition from one store than lrom a dozen saloons pi D Russell Dealer in Groceries and Produce s Raywick Ky Aug 25 1906 Editor Sun Your inquiry in regard to the beneficial working of the local option law is cheerfully answred I

half saloonImans money his wifes produce while his family had to suffer for the necessities of life Cecil Norris General Merchants Raywick Ky Aug 27 1906 =Editor Sun Answering your inquiry as to the benefit of local option in our little town of Raywick I can say it has made our town Sixlyears ago when whisky was for sale here there were two small stores andjjfivejsalqons Today we have fourjstores grocery and poultry house we have a bank that was organized two years ago that IS doing a nice business Men have money in it who were never known to have a bank account whilewhisky was for sale in Raywick Our storesare all doing a good business One of our present storks is sell ing more goods now in a yea than all the stores together sold while whisky was for sale here I have heard mer chants
