the band could be broken and scattered efore it reaced the place of its intend ed depredation True it will cost the county sonic thing to put these watchmen on duty but if it does no more than

ions many good citizens are leaving the State none are coming into it Other States look upon Kentucky as a veritable hot bed of crime and daily newspapers by means of flaming head1 lines and hideous cartoons are giving to theworld some very ugly pictures of our loved Commonwealth In this cbnnection we print th f6 lowing letter received by the editor olo The Sun a few days ago Denton Tex March 23ditor Sun The Dallas News the leadin paper of Texatf informs its readers tiat an exodus of Kentuckians is imminent on ac yowtate Eisemistakeinadvis1ng manyKentuckians theirbrethrenifKentuckians to come to Texas will in no way be molested LiteraryDigeston an article or editorial from your paper Yours truly Raymond Vernimonti This letter was doubtless written iin all seriousness The writer is patriot ic and desires to better his State by having a lot of good Kentuckians locate there But in this instance we are gp ing to put a check on our philantbrp py and advise Kentuckians to remain in Kentucky stick to theiri guns and fight the battle to a successful conclu- SIOn May we not offer a few suggestions to the members of the American Society of Equity in this countymore especially to the officers of the organiza tion In the outata t let it be known that the editor of The Sun is an A S ofE being one of the charter members of the Fenwick Local and that he is a friend and certainly in nowise an enemy of the organization It is known to every member of the American Society of Equity that many people in Kentucky are placing the blame for all this rioting and incendiar ism at the door of the Society Some folk go soar as to advocate the aboli tion of th society as a means of bring ing about peace Hence it will be seen that the organization is in bad repute with some people False stories as to the methOdsand intentions of Equity organizations have been heralded over Kentucky until today there are people who actually believe that the object of the Society is murder and arson It is unfort na ie for toe movement that even a few peo le hold to such opinions and the memb rs of the various Equity So cietiesthr ughout theState should leave nothing undone to remove tkes1false impressior s from the minds peo- PIe else like cancerous sores they spread ard destroy where they ouch 11a If the lie is not given to these stories in a more forcible manner than shout ing from the housetop the qrganization in Kentucky will be damned Let us be determined in our efforts to check these miserable tales ACTION IS NECESSARY Equity leaders and all mem b ers and friends of the organization should endeavor to put down crime in Kentucky INDEED THE SOCIETY SHOULD MAKE AS STRONG AN EFFORT TO RESTORE ORDER INo KENTUCKY AS IT HAS MADE TO GET FIFTEEN CENTS A POUND F R TOBACCO Let the locals of ea6h community meet at the earliest possible date and let all members band themselves to gether with the avowed purpose to k eep order in their respective commun- Ities No greater calamity could befall the farmers Kentucky than the destruction of their great organization It ould be a glorious day for the tobacco trust and would giye it another oppor tunity to put its iron hand upon your throats11 Do all in your power to uphold law and order in this county and counsel y our friends against using inflammatory language and thus be instrumen tal in strengthening the Society We do not believe there are in Wash ington county a half dozen men of ordinary intellegence who would encour age night riding or uphold nightrider methods but if there is one individual who feels in duty bound to go forth to burn barns the people are unsafe so long as he is at liberty However there may bean organized band in another section dastardly contemplating with an eye turned to the fertile fields arid the sacred precincts of this dear ld county Therefore it would be well to patrol the highways and watch the barns till this storm of terror in Kentucky has spent its velocity CAUTION It is the duty of every good citizen to denounce not only nightriding and nightrider methods but to lend a help lug Hand to wipe from Kentucky these agencies ot crime and disorder You can not say too riiuch against such crimes you can not became too active n an effort to remove the causes of these outrages But do not permit yourself to condemn the American So ciety of Equity Ths organization a legitimate and is working to the end that the conditions of farmers may be bettered As an organization it is not a part of and has no part in mght rid ing Its officers and members have de nounced and are yet denouncing the very deplorable and mean crimes of in cendiarism and plunder Many of the best citizens of Ken tucky are members of this organiza tion They believe they have a right to band themselves together and work to promote the welfare of each othfci When this society is branded as a crim inal organizationas the originator and pomoter of nightriding these citizens are placed in the same category with the roving rogues of bloody shirts and flaming torches To place the blame for nightriding at the door of the Equity Society puts no oil upon the troubled waters In Kentucky at present we should all be careful of whom we accuse Accusation without proof is too much like a- dazotoo much like an invitation to cross the line and fight it out Cool heads are essential when the rioter is abroad in the land Let all good citizens stand together faithfully and determinedly in an effort to restore order in Kentucky Equity men and nonequity men should put their heads together and endeavor to plan ways and means of thwart ing the will of the night rider of forc ing all men to obey the laws and respect the rights citizens Most of the members of the Society of Equity are law biding and can do frj much good in their respective commun ities toward bringing about peace and good fellowship but if it is con tIn ually dingdonged into their ears that the Society they love is a criminal organization they will npt feel inclined to assist ardently and cheerfully in the restoration of law and order butwill be content tc let matters go by thet way Caution ought to be the watchword f every man and the fellow full of in sinuations and threats ought to try to curb himself A LESSON Thei individuals who are mailing threatening letters to farmers in this county can learn a valuable lesson if they will briefly study the case of Robert Wood of Christian county Wood is a young farmer of that county and was doubtless prosperous to a degree and was possibly happy and contented until he felt himself called upon to write a letter sign it Night Rider and mail it to a negro by the name of Lewis Dawson Besides pay ing a fine of 136 Wood is compelled to serve a jail sentence of three months Every man who writes a threatening letter opens up a way through which he may traveTto the penitentiary SUNNY SIDE As I have not seen any letters from our little village for some time I will

engaged in it I In direct successive line there were r seven William Johnsons every one of them endowed with a force of char acter that rendered him more than a common man The greatest of them was William Johnson born in 1817 the son of the flatboatman of that name Wh nhewas a lad of seventeen his father bought a half interest in the general store of a merchant named Mc Manus then the leading

Nel son county Two years later he was re eltcted and chosen speaker of that body it was the Legislature that gave James B Beck his last commission as Senator and in those days fire Kentucky Democracy was a militant party untorn by faction unplagued by small men There was no machine Simon Bolivar Buckner was Governor and conventions reflected the choice ot the electorate At the close of his term as Speaker young Johnson returned to his law of flee and the personal management of his extensive businessaffairs As had his lather befo hi4he had the repu tation of a consum business man ere he was

would be written as high on the rollas Blames or Conklings as Thurmans or Lamars His speech in advocacy of the election of Tilden in 1876 was as masterly an argument as ever came from the American stump and in the Senate he would have been Aldrich and Carlisle combined He is yet living at nearly threescore years and ten but it was only his active outdoor life that preserved him so long When Cleveland became President m 1893 he appointed Ben Johnson Collector of Internal Revenue of the Fifth Kentucky district perhaps the second in the Union in the amount ot taxes paid To this office Johnson brought all his capacity for business and all his energies as an executive There was no better conducted office in the Union and it is doubtless true that Johnson is the best equipped man m Congress to legislate on internal revenue taxation He is as familiar with all the laws on tnat subject as he is with his alphabet and his clear and convincing discussions of the matter would be invaluable to Congress if it should be attempted to revise the reyenue laws during his ser vice in the House of Representatives In 1906 Ben Johnsonwas elected to Congress and for the reputation he had made as a clearheaded business man he was assignedto the Committee on the District ot Columbia He is also the Kentucky representative on the Congressional Campaign Committee and will cro far if his

is the first time that the pre siding officer of a court of record in eastern Washington has been called upon to referee a dog fight which he did not witness The evidence showed that the bulldog was the aggressor at tacking the shepherd dog which was sunning itself on the porch of the Hepton home Experts on dogology were called by the court to testify to the fighting qualities of the two breeds

talk lately of the en rmous crops of tobacco that some of LaRue countys farmers are prepar ing to raise this season and the warn ings presumably from night riders which some of those who are said to have manifested a disposition to grow a crop have received but thus far there has been little to substantiate it in either case In the first place the rais ing or tobacco has always been a side issue with LaRue county farmers and th j indcations are that it will be the sane this year It has Deen the custom with several of the countys farmers to raise a crop to supply their own de mand and a few have raised small crips to sell Sifted down all of those enormous crops that LaRue county farmers were going to raise this year have already been planted cultivated prized and sold at 20 cents round

county thus far this farmer states that his near est neighbor had planned to raise a small crop this year for home con sum tion only This farmer is the father of two boys aged eleven and thirteen years upon whom he was re lying to cultivate this crop The boys- did not enter into this part of the pro gram with the best of spirits arid planned to scare the old man Ac cordinglyt one day they cut a lot of limber switches and that night tied them into two bunches and laid them at the front door of the home On the door they tacked this sign OM man if you raise any tobacco this year there will be hi raised here- NighVRiders Frpm a window in the kitchen the father watched the operations of the boys and when they retired and were fast asleep dreaming of the happy days thev would spend with rod and Ineon the creek bank instead of tussling with the worms in a tobacco patch he stole into their rooms In the trousers leg of each he deposited a bunch of the switches and on the seats of their pants was attached the following sign Night Riders Meetme at the barn at 7 oclock in the morning when hlraising will begin Old Man The appointment was kept andit caused the mother itO devote half a day to patch up the two seats of pants while nature is still at work patching up two otKer seats The man who tels this story and who lives not far from town says that that t9bacco bed is the pride of the neighborhood and if it doesnt produce the banner crop it will not be the fault of the youthful night riders SPARROW Farmers are very busy preparing for a crop of corn and tobacco All prospects are

Stripes =El Paso TexTwo daring Americans J Frederick Shepard and Charles C Nichpls Jr both of New York city have made the ascent of th- esrugged mountain at Orizaba Mexico and discovered the old flag pole and a few torn remnants of the flag T which Gen Scotts men had planted 60 years ago The first ascension of Mount Ori zaba of which there is any record was made by a party of Americans in 1848 These Intrepid climbers belonged to the army 6f Gen Scott which was 1 making Its way from Vera Cruz to the City of Mexico They planted upon 4fce summit of the large mountain a large American flag and upon the staff which upheld the cplors of the republic to the north was carved the date the ascension was made Mount Orizaba Is 18224 feet above sea level It is next to the highest mountain upon the continent being surpassed only by Mount McKInley Its summit has been gained by but few people The Indians who make their home near its base have u su I perstltious reverence for the snow which perpetually covers the peaks ofI the mountain On account of this fear that something terrible should befall them if theY should come into contact with the snow it is impossible for climbers to obtain the services ofr l guides fartherthan the snow line The remainder of the journey is full of dangers and requires the use of ropes and the exercise of the greatest care in gettins over the more difficult 4places In the absence of guides few men are daring enough to undertake the trip The success which Messrs Shepard and Nfchpls recently scored In reaching the summit was all the more remark able froth the fact that it was a com petitlve adventure in which the United States England Germany and FraDce were represented Those who set out to perform the feat were Messrs Shepard and Nichols four German avaI officers whose training ship was In portat Vera Cruz for a brief stay two French tourists and two English scientists The start of this journey was made from the City of Mexico They were All well equipped to make the hard theyhadreachpda they encountered terrible storm of sleet and snow The snow was so 1ck blinding that the different members o- fjbwgrebecame separated The two i I Americad managed to remain together andiWi nthey emerged from the cloud or mas of snow whichf fitted the air they fte nd that none oft the other members oOihe party was 1tln sight VV Below them lay the clouG In which they had been enveloped ihe sun shone brilliantly above andta scene was an Inspiring one they sajV The cloud billowed and tossed like a tem pestuous sea but above its disturbed t surface all was bright and serene7 The Americans continued to cUm upward until they hd reached the pin nacle of the mountain The guides bad deserted them far below and they had to exercise their own judgment as to tie path to be trodden through the deep snow The sides of the cone for the last few hundred feet are remarkably symmetrical The daring adventurers carried with them two large flags one the colors of the United States and the other that of Mexico They planted these flags upon the summit and after spending a short time taking in the grand view wLIch had by this iDle been loft ex posed by the clearing f the clouds theystarted on their downward jour ney The descent was quickly made it taking them only 30 minutes to cover the distance that they had spent ten hours and thirty minutes to climb The other members of the party made a brave effort to reach the sum mit of the mountain The Germans gained a point within 200 feet of tho top they were all forced to give up further effort on account of complete exhaustion It w s with dif ficulty that they made their way down the sides of the mountain to the i rest camp so overcome were they with the altitude and the exertion The two English scientists reached a point 12000 feet above the isea level and the French tourists were able to go only little beyond the snow line aWFell So Hard Cant jSIeep Spokane WashF W Middaugh a
