fair v At akmceting of the National Fair Managers Association held at the Grand Pacific Hotel Chicago Decenv ber 5 tt which W R Moorman Jr represented Kentucky September 1621 was assigned as date forour State Fair next year The State Board of Agriculture is pleased with the date r tt Bryan and Roosevelt In its issue of Wednesday 5 the New York World prin December11 toridl entitled The RoosevelfcBryai Merger Commoner readers who have heard Mr Bryans views bitterly criticized by republicans may bo inter este in this World editorial Mr Bryan in his Madison Sqiiar Garden speech advocated a federal in come tax Mr Roosevelt in his mess age to congress advocates both a fede ral income tax and a federal inheritance tax When next our system of taxation is revisedin the opinion of theWorld excellent and just measures Mr Bryan advocated publicity of campaign contributions and expenditures and a law forbidding corporation contributions to any political party Mr Roosevelt renews his former rec ommendation that congress enact such a lawtMr Bryan urged the enforcement of the criminal clause of the Sherman law against trusts Mr Roosevelt asks for the right of appeal in such criminal cases oh questions of law holding that it is absurd to permit a single district judge to declare a law of congress unconstitutional against what might be the judgment of an immense majority of his colleagues on the bench and then deny to the government the right to have the supreme court defi- nitelY decide the question Mr Roosevelt also favors a statute providing that no judgment shall be set aside or new trial granted on technical grounds unless it shall appear that the error complained Itof resulted in a miscarriage of justiceMr an indorsed the licensing of corporations Mr Roosevelt is in favor of controlling corporations by a federal licenser law or in other fash ion Mr ooSevelt ho yKfdrawii a closer distinction than Mr Bryan between good trusts and bad trusts and considers some combinations bene ficent He would legalize railway pooling but would of course regulate it to prevent abuses Mr Bryan opposed government by injunction especially in labor disputes Mr Roosevelt concedes that injunc ionS issue too freely m these causes and would require judges to give due notice to the adverse parties before ranting a writ Mr Bryan favored an eighthour day Mr Roosevelt believes it should be our aim steadily to reduce the num ber of hours of labor with as a goal the general introduction of an eight hour day Mr Roosevelt would begin bye limiting the hours of railroad em ployes The eighthour law already on the statute books relating to federal contracts is being rigidly enforced but the president favors furthe legis lation if it is needed uMr Bryan advocated compulsory arbitration of labor disputes but not compulsory cceptanc of the findings investiga1tionand s kesIMr Bryan declared that the Philip pines should be dealt with after the manner of Cuba Since that time there has been a Cuban insurection and we are temporarily dealing withCuba as we should deal with the Philippines SIr Roosevelt says that when the elec tions are held and a new government- S inaugurated in a peaceful orderly fashion the provisional government in Cuba will come toan end but nobody knows when that will be Mr Bryans wish has been fulfilled inversely Both however favor free trade for the phil- ippines or at least a greatly reduced tariff Mr Bryan insisted that the navy should notbe employed in the collection of private debts Mr Roosevelt deprecates such use of the navyand is in moral sympathy with the resdlation adopted at the Rio conference recommending that the question be submitted to a second peace conference at The Hague Mr Roosevelt makes important recommendations relating to many questions which Mr Bryan did not din cuss in the Madison Square Garden speech He favors the withdrawal of government coal lands Ownership in such lands would remain in the United States which would not attempt to mine coal but would license mining sail receive a royaltyon the coal taken out Mr Bryan will undoubtedly indorse this recommendation Mr Roosevelt also proposkto ex r tend Employers liability so that the entireVtrade risk will be upon the em ployer If the entire trade risk is placejlupon the employer he will promptly and properly add it to the cost of production and assess it pro portionally upon the consumers of his product In this way society as a whole would pay for the accidents rc suiting from occupations that are nee essarily hazardous It w to be assum ed that Mr Bryan will sympathize with this extention of socalisticprin cipleftWhether he will also indent recommendation for a federi marriage arid divorce law is more problematical but there is nothing in the suggestion that conflicts with Mr Bryans theories of government Roosevelt thinks that the meat in spection law should be amended to provide that the labels be dated and the cost of inspection charged to the packers Mr Bryan strongly favors this 5Mr Roosevelt also argues at length to prove that the courts are entitled to Immunity from criticism arid that the best judges have ever been foremost to disclaim such immunity Mr Bryan has consistently adhered to this posi tion ever since the supreme court de clared the income tax unconstitutional and the Chicago platforni hinted at a reorganization of the cout Mr Bryan in turn recommended important measures which the presi dent ignores He favored tariff revis iQIi and the presidents silence on the subject is oppressive It is hinted however that the president intends to call the Sixtieth congress in extra ses sion to revise the tariff Mr Bryan also suggested government ownership of railroads as a possible solution of a perplexing problem Afterward he insisted that he was really no more radi cat this question than Mr Roose yStand that he did not favor owner ship unless regulation failed to accom push its purpose Mr Roosevelt insists that regulation is already accomplish ing its purpose and that in the five months since the rate law was enacted there has been a previously unheard of number of reductions in freight rates Comparing Mr Bryans Madison Square Garden speech with Mr Roose velts message to congress the reader is forced to the conclusion that if Mr Roosevelt would advocate tariff r sion and Mr Bryan would stop advo cating government ownership of rail roads they would be substantially in accord Certainly two great political parties could not successfully divide on theissue of the peace with righteousness which comes from a big navy el even oh the issue of a ship subsidy Accepting Mr Roosevelt apd Mr Bryan as the leaders of their respective parties we defy anybody to say where the dividing line is beyond which a voter has ceased to be a Roosevelt repub lican and become a Bryan democrat There has been no such obliteration of party lines in American politics for threequarters of a century liThe Poosevelt Bryan merger is one of the most extraordinary events in American history especially in view of the fact that Mr Bryan claims to be more radical than ever while Mr Roosevelt persists in regarding himself asa rational conservative battling manfully against the demagogue and the agitator t NOTICE A meeting of the A S of E Locals of Washington county will be held in Springfield next Saturday afternoon This will be an importdnt meeting and should be well attended Plans for building the tobacco warehouse will be discussed and other matters of great importance will be attended to COME Fifth Sunday Meeting of Central Association t OnSaturday and Sunday the Baptists of Washington and Marion counties met at Mackville for a Filth Sunday meeting The inclemency

of the 23rd JMr Pat Staton and Miss Zilpha Martin two of our popular young people were married at Mr Sleet Coyles in East Wash ington Rev R L Purdom was the officiating minister May the Lord grant

was greatly attached Rev R L Purdom preached his funeral at theBethlehem church the following day after which the remains were laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery Deceased was in his seventysixth year and seryednn the war of the rebellion He was cOn- verted in the fulTstrength of manhood and joined the Beech Fork Baptist church and lived a consistent Christian life His wife and four children pre ceeded him into the Great Beyond Much might be said of Bro Nelsons noble traits of character but they are recorded in the hearts of his many friends Is it not a pity that we keep our words of love and praise until the ear is dull and cold in deathKind words are so cheap it is a wonder that we use them so sparingly Wp do not shower them upon friend and foeand scatter love and sunshine along their way As we enter upon the bright new year of 1907 let us remember this maybe the last year with some reader of The Sun or the last chance to extend a helping hand to some poor soul who maybe sinking beneath the dark waves of sin or sorrow and needs only a kind loving hand to lift them up to a higher nobler life Mrs Mary Cannon who lived on S4 Run died at sunrise on the morn ing of

ones we extend Oujhsympathy Two more of our old friends have dropped out and eft us Thus we cross over one by bne and may a kind providence keep special guard over the few remaining ohes But it is comforting and sweet to know that the tomb shall not always keep our sainted dead in its cold embrace the sleeping dust shall spring forth into a new arid glorified life Mr JohnC Martin has accepted a position as clerk in Mr F W Halls store at Mackyille and will be pleased to wait on his old customers Mr Mark Young and Miss Martha Bradley were married at Perryville on the twelth of December Bro

afetr 1900 or in round numbers about 38000 Since these plans have been sallined it has been suggested that IIi darjdual capitalists could be induced to MDstruct the houses and either rent Ukas houses to the growers or ware I ftirase the tobacco and charge certain Btxnnnerative fees therefor But the gravers of Washington County have fdermined that it will be very profit lie to them to construct own

contemplates that when other counties in the burley territory have organized on the plan suggested or similar plans that the presidents of the county organizations will organize a state or ganization under the American Society of Equity which will havecharge of the final sale of Uthe tobacco held by the county organizations as above out lined so that these county organiza tions can cooperate with the manu facturers and prepare the tobacco as the manufacturer may need it in their business and ship it in such condition and at such times as they may desire it Thus obviating the necessity of the manufacturer being forced to receive and care for the great mass of wet tobacco which is thrown on the market during the months of December Jan uary and February each year which they are forced to rehandle and arti ficially dry at a great expense The Washington County Tobacco growers as we understand will begin at once to erect substantial warehouses equipped in every way for the business proposed to be conducted Admirable location has been selected on the rail road close to the waterworks so that pipes cane be run through the entire building thus securing the lowest rate of fire insurance To handle the crop of 1906 which has been pooled we understand that it has been proposed that the warehouse company secure tobacco barns in the various neighborhoods and temporarily arrangethem as warehouses in which the present crop can be stored and handled practically on the same plan as is proposed to handle the crop of 1907 and all future crops4 We believe the tobacco growers of Washington county have adopted strictly business methods by which they propose to handle and dispose of their future crops and we predict for them success and we believe that if the other counties in the- burleydistrict will adopt similar meth ods and all cooperate with each other in the plans herein outlined in a short time the great conflict which is now going on between the tobacco trust and the people will be settled ona business basis and we will no longer apprehend a repetition of the deplorable affairs which recently Recurred at Princeton ovo was written the stockholders of

railroads utterly fail to supply the necessary locomotives to handle the cars and that trains are made up and cars withdrawn in a very dilatory manner On the other hand the railroads say that the shippers are primarily at fault in that they delay the loading and un hamfe railroads The various lines doing business in otol talent while the shippers through flier various organizations will also

a crop Today there are millions of acres of land producing paying crops which a few years ago were barren waskes It would take many a big volume to tell the story of what scientific research has done for farming in the last decade An this brings a practical suggestion to every farmer and that there may be no condition so unpromising but that it may be overcome by study and ex perimentation Talk

every farmer has some patch of ground which he considers good for nothing and upon which he spends no tine or thought or effort But the les on which the scientist is teaching ihe farmer Is that almost any patch of ground is good for something Join the ranks of the investigating progressive farmer study the conditions of that wasto bit of land experiment to find what can best be done withit Let no rod of your acreage go unimproved Make every inch of the farm pay An order issued by the fourth assistant postmaster general provides that boxes on rural free delivery routes shall be numbered

comparison with others heretofore issued shows a rapid in crease in business from the organizar tion of the bank in 1869 resulting doubtless from careful and conserva tive management as well as from the active interest with which the affairs have been looked after both by the employes and officers The bank has always had a wide awake board of di rectors which has lately been strength ened by the
