to gether witir a number of counter affida vits tHE COURAGEOUS ti H t Some people measure a mans courr age by his readiness to knockrdtfwn 1dragoutby his promptness to re sent an insult witha blow Especially is this true 5n Kentucky If a manj crosses another a fight is in VIta 1ble A term in jaila seat upon the rock pileis preferable at least toj many peoplerto letting a socalled iti suit go unnoticed There is a sentifuentI among Kentuckians that it is disgrace ful not to resent an offensive remark and many a poor devil has spent years in prison separated from his family dishonored and disgraced because he felt that his courage would be called in question if he failedito resent an insiriuationi that in reality amounted to naught We are all too ready to resenttoo ready to spill the blood of o felloes becauseof some un complimentary remark Nine times iout of ten we are not resentful because we bearmalice toward the person with whom we combat or becauseour minds are inflamed against him but because we desire to s vefromtamishour giri6 s reputations as fighters The following bearing upon this subject is clipped from Bryans Commoner Eleanor Talbot Kmkead of Lexing tc24ton Ky has issued through her pub Moffat Company New York a book which is well worth read ing It is a novel The Courage iC Blackburn Blair and the purpose of the book is set forth in the title A delightful love story runs through the text and strengthens the moral which the author has in mind The purpose of the book is to present the truth that moral courage is a higher virtue than physical courage and that it is more to ignore an insult than it ra to resent it with violence It is a difficult task to convince the average person that one can have physical courage without using it in such a case and yet what is civilizatfon tor ifitdoes not re suit in a self constraint which will en able us to master ourselves even when j it is easier to give a blow than to re frainfrom it He that ruleth his own c spirit is greater than he that taketh a city is the theme of the boOk for the 1 courage of Blackburn Blair is just the kind of courage of which the wise man speaks The habit of resorting to a Sfist fight or to revolver when an of fensive remark is made iRa habit to be discouraged and no publication which 4 H T has recently appeared has calculated to do more to reform the habit than the beautiful and touching story ot Black burn Blair It is earnestly commended- to the readers of the Commoner Wehave not read the above men tioned book but upon Mr Bryans recommendation we desire to do so Ituuht to be read by all Kentuck ians especially by that class of pistol toting fellows with chips upon their shoulders who imagine they areas brave as lions but who in reality are born cowards THE NOMINEE The Democratic Committee for the Fourth Congressional district met in Louisville last Thursday and called off the primary which was to beheld in this district next Saturday May 16 There was pnly one announced candidate for the nomination Hon Ben Johnson the present Congressman and the committee after resolving itself nto a convention nominated him The members of the committee from the various counties in the district report that the Democrats are in a fight mg humor and each said that his coun 3 would increase its Democratic vote Considering that this is Mr Johnsons rft term in Congress his popularity n each of the counties composing the FurthDistrict is rather remarkable He is well known by all classes andi jhis most ardent friends and supporters are found among the poor class of people Mr Johnsonhas caused that vjlass to see that their interests are his iihterests In both public and private life he has endeavored to better the conditions of men and women upon whom misfortune has laid a heavy hand Not long ago Mr E p Dedman re quested the editor of The Sun to writ Q Mr Johnson and ask that he try to gist the name Qf an old blind lady who resides in the northern section of this county restored to the pension role We were informed by Mr Dedman that quite a number of unsuccessful efforts to get the pension for the unfortunate wonian had been made The editor of Sun wrote to Mr Johnson giving lira the facts as related to us by Mr Declman In a few days we received- an Answer to our letter Mr Johnson Bail Indeed it will be a real pleasure to ipe to be of assistance to this unfor tunate woman A short time thereafter the name was restored to the pension role besides the woman received several hundred dollars back pay It Was really more pleasure to Mr John jtm to assist this poor woman than it would have been bad he rendered a service to the richest man in America While attending the Committee meet ing in Louisville last week Mr C Rl ardin of Hart county said Mr Johnson s popularity among the farmers of Hart county surprises me I often hear them boast that the Fourth District has the best Congressman in the State and they declare that Hart county will give him a nice majority The farmers and laboring classes as well as the business men of Hart courr ty feel that they have a representative in Congress Who is looking to the interests of the districtone who is absolutely honest in his dealings with all men Theysay that Mr Johnson is not aprofessipnal poiitjcianthathe is not in politics for the sole purpose of advancing his own personal interests ancTthat he is one representative of the people who earnestly endeavors to pro mote the welfare of every man and woman who honestly and honorably strive for the consummation of those thinks which may mean their better men It is gratifying to me to note these conditions and 1 am convinced With this sentiment existing among the people that Hart county though or dinarily close will give Mr Johnson a good majority Such expressions as the above came from eyery member of the committee It is very c ear to The Sun that Fourth District Democrats werenever ih better fighting trim and it is evi dent that a handsome majority will be the result next f ltI T THE PRESIDENT INSULTED President Roosevelts latest message to the National Congress was treated with unprecedented discourtesy While the message was being read in the Sen ate a motion was made to adjourn an unusual interruption to say the least In the House it was pigeonholed for twentyfour hours This is the first time in the history ot the country that Congress in such a deliberate manner has offered insult to the Chief Execu tive We are glad that these inexcus able discourtesies did not come from a Democratic source they came directly from membersof Mr Roosevelts own party AN UNUSUAL SPECTACLE Last Wednesday in the Republican State convention the delegates che red themselves hoarse when somebody an nouncect that Cileb Powers and lim Howard had been pardoned The v ild est confusion reigned and manytt ere were who were crazed by enthusia sm It is said the hat was passed among the delegates and a pollection taken up with which to pay for a special trai i to bring Powers from the Georgetown jailt and Howard from the Frankfort psni tentiary to the convention The dele gates wanted to hear them speak they wanted to grasp the hands of wo fellow hands red with Go thesejood and shower the individuals congratulations We are now more than ever before inclined to the belief tht Kentucky needs a Law and Order League one that will assist in the prosecution of the Goebel assassins as Well asin the prosecution of the assassins of Hiram Hedges The Marion County Leader is the name of a new paper launched at Lebanon last week Mr C A Johnston is the editor inchiet Mr R C Bland ford associate editor and Mr J Arthur Smith business manager The Leader is Republican in politics The first issue is wellprinted and has an abundance of news The Republican State convention did not adzactly defeat Bradley with a nigger in a necktpnecik race but it sent a gentleman of cjullah to the National convention instead of thec Senatorelect The Sun has received the initial num ber of The Winston County Ala News printed at Haleyville Ala by Mr Harry Hansbrough who was formerly an employe of The Sun The News is well printed well edited and has an unusually prosperous appearance The Republican State convention became hilarious and pitched its hat up into the air when a grape vine announced that 1ov Willson had pardoned Powers and Howard Dr David W Gaddi of Hodgenville has been nomihatedfor Congress by the Republicans of this district MORE PENSIONS Secured By Mr Johnson For Washington

About the Plants of the Forest I And the Spring Times of the long Ago piEys OFTHE GOOD FOLKS ON LONG RUN The other day near our home while going to church oyer in the edge of the woods we saw a young lady friend who seemed to be very intent on dig ging something up As we cameup an explanation was made She said she had stopped to dig up some ferns that she might use them to help beautify her home Hands all soiled from getting up the plants held a butcher knife we would not have thought of such a tool but would aveused a mattock and while assorting them in their respective gro psshe talked to us about the fern family She told us were four kinds of ferns in our native woods and they grew to perfection only in the dark shades of the for est where the sunlight rarely falls and where the soil is very rich and damp Now we had never noticed butone kind although we were reared at the very edge of a large forest where grew and still grows almost every kind pf wild flower and everything beautiful How stupid we felt as we sat upon oUr horse while she wenton talk ing about fens and flowers We love the beautiful but to know we had been so unobserving mortified us but then women know so much about such things and her ways we cannot under stand Her thoughts are so different from ours and her nature so much more refined and we arc glad it is so that we cannot appreciate her highest en deavors So many of us have as yet this lesson to learn Doubtless some reader knows of some poor obscure woman who is trying to make home attractive by hanging upon bare walls leaves of old magazines and newspr pers and planting a few bunches of flowers in the frontyard thus showing to those who may chance to pass that way her womanly nature and when we meet her we feel like taking off our hat for we are in the presence of an uncrowned queen So if mother wife sister or daughter wish something that will make home morefattractive to you the family and friends help her to obtain it even to the adorning of her per son in gQodly raiment ribbons and flowers Ind do not be so blind as to stand in her way and if she has not the necessary moons you jut furnish her for it is just about the best investment you can make Woman may fear but cannot long respect much less love a little narrow stingy man She is not built that way and her 110ve is worth amine of gold Then torif she wishes to go to church or make a social visit we should go with her if possible if not make a way for her We know men who do these helpful acts and noble men they are too Do not be grum about it either for that will spoil your very best act Remember she did you a great favor when she condescended to marry you and as you stood before the altar you promised before God aid wit nesses to love and cherish Though all things else fail you cannot afford to fail to fulfill the promise you made on that day Then every man who has a good woman for a wife has a fortune but we haye seen some who seem not to know it Take if you wish for your c6mpanion a careless woman but give me the one who loves God and flowers The other day a couple of friends came over to our hous One of them wanted some yellow rout golden seal which he said was the best stomach and kidney medicine he had ever found so with hoe inhand we were soon hidden by primitive beauty It is amazing what a charm there is in nature if we only had eyes to see it fOrit is the handiwork of God Himself We found plants the names of many we did and some we did not know but they were all familiar to us We found ferns whose feathery like palms were waving in the gentle breeze we found a few ginseng plants which caused us to think ofour tfriend Prof W B Edwards e 7 rt y1Jj and wish he had them to set in his bed A bitter sweet vine an Indian turnip which we could not persuade our friends to eat was also found May apples bloodroot ladies trumpet poison oak and Virginia creeper the last two are known by the former having three round dark green leaves while tne latter has five long light green leaves on each stem turkey peas and wild pea vines which bear a little pod about an inch long and filled with little brown peas These once grew in great pro fusion and were said to be very nutritious equal to clover The stockof the early settlers it is said would fat ten on them and the practiced eye of the pioneer could easily track an animal or enemy through their tangled vines Iwe had only extended our tramp we would have found several bunches of spignut which was once very plentiful but is now very scarce and is said to have medical properties These with other plants and flowers were founo in profusion but in the meantime we were looking for and digging tip the chief object of our searchyellow root At last we asked our friend how many pounds we had lug and he pulled out of his pocket some two handsful which he said would last him for some Having a little leisure time orat least we thought so we stopped for a talk While our elder friend leaned against a large beech tree and the younger man against a degwood bush the writer re dined upon the ground While lying there on the leaves these thoughts came to us One may have and hold temporary anger or malice for Let not the sun go down upon your wrath But it taxes our faith to believe a fol lower of the lowly Nazarene can be so poor in hearts to deliberately hold andcontinuously cherish month after month and year after year this hideous monster but it is even so and such a one willingly puts himself or herself squarely on satans ground and in so doing put themselves beyond His for giving love encourages the tempter to follow his steps sihd keeps him from the love and fellowship of a brother sister or friend thus continually sin ning against God and his fellowman coupling his own and the happiness of all concerned While were musing one of our fnends noble man that he issaId to only one man did he refuse to speak but was going to right that wrong How could he feel other- WIse with surroundings like these While we said Amen the flowers seemed to catch the tender spirit and smiling and approving bowed their lIt- tle purple heads Oh what a teacher nature is If we would only quit the busy haunts of men and occasionally go into these shady retreats and there listen to her gentle voice and let the spirit of the forest speak to our conscience the Eternal One in whose im mediate presence we seem to stand to our hearts and the little snowdrops teach us a lesson in love Our minds turn back and we want to consult our records and the oldest in habitants but probably there has not been a sprimr like this one for more than a century In the spring oJr 1833 apples as largeas small bird eggs were killed and corn cut down by the rost The spring of 1874 was a

That amant R N Wathen was sick at the time of beingi arrested and was comlpelled by staItionstatements made by the negro orator and the chaplain of the penitentiary Said remarks were greatly applauded by the advocates of local option all of which was most humiliating to affiants and others and was a part of the scheme concocted and advised by the Ho advoIcating the arrest of said parties That the charges contained in said warrants were false in fact and were1 not indlctmfntswereever In further manifestation ofthetun- 4 J3 I4i5 controllable and blind bias and prejudice existing in the Hon I Hf

Company and Murray its agent on motion of the attorney for the de fendants for a peremptory instruction to the jury the said judge openly from the bench stated to said attorney that he would not give the instruction asked that In any case coming be fore him as judge involving a charge of an Infraction of the local option laws that if any doubtj arose he would solve it in favor of the Common wealth Whereupon the attorney said to the court in response You certainly would not so flagrantly violate the law ndin this case there is not a scintilla of proof and you certainly do not mean what you say The judge replying to the attorney said Yes I do mean what I say I will solve all doubts in such cases in favor of the Commonwealth and further that if parties go unwhipped o justice on the charges of violating the local option law in my district it will be by the verdict of the juries and if I were on the juries I would find a way to con vict them In further manifestation of the said bias and prejudice against the whisky business and any one engaged therein and especially including affiants at the January 1908 term of the Marion Circuit Court on impanelling and in structing the grand jury for said term during the charge to the jury made bythe court in the first instance the judge instructed the jury that manu facturers were especially exempt from the operation of the local option laws and had the right to sell in original packages that after jthe jury had been In session some few days the judge Hon I H Thurman called tEe jury into open court and further instructed them that he had changed his opinion somewhat as to the law rela tive to manufacturers and that it had been called to his attention since his original instruction to them that map ufacturers here at Lebanon had been selling whisky by the barrel to clubs of men knowing at the time they so sold it that it was to be divided among the members of such clubs and in quantities of less than five gallons and thatas he understood the law to exist they were guilty of a violation of the law that wherever these man ufacturers solil to clubs or to anyone a barrel of whisky knowing at the time they sold it that it was to be di vided in quantities less than five gal Ions that they were4guilty of a violation of the law and it was the duty of the grand jury to indict them and that he expected them to do so and that said instruction referred expressly and directly to these affiants that the said judge In giving said Instruction to the grand jury useU the words these manufacturers here at Leba non and made a gesture in the direc tion of the distillery of affiants That during the same term of the court to wit the January Term 1908 a sugges tion was made that affiant R N Wathen would become security for an other party who was charged with a violation of the local option law and in reference thereto the said Hon I H Thurman made the following state ments thatul the grand jury did their duty that Mr Wathen would have enough bonds of his own to make referring to affiant R N Wathen which statements were made in advance of the return of any indictments against affiants by the grand jury Affiants further state that the citi zens and voters of the county of Ma non are as nearly as may be equally divided in regard to religious tenden cbs and beliefs rind convictions between the Catholic and Protestant faiths that is that there are about as many Protestants as Catholics in the county that the adherents of the Catholic faith are in principle opposed to the enactment and enforcement of sumptuary laws and believe in the full exercise of the greatest freedom of personal liberty and are conse quently opposed to local option laws and that many Protestants are like wise opposed to the enactment of sumptuary laws and to local dptioTi statutes and at the last general elec tion held In November 1907 the candidates who were known to be opposed to local option laws received more votes both in county and city dee tions than did candidates who favored local pption That the Hon I H Thurman in selecting the jury com nmissioners at the last January term of this court whose duty it was to select the names from which Is to be drawn the grand and petit juries for the pres ent year selected three Protestants all of whom were extremely partisan advocates of local option laws and known in local parlan e as dry men That said three commissioners select ed the names from which the grand and petit juries are to be select ed for the year That of the thirty six men whose names have been drawn and from which list the petit juries are to be selected who are to r serve 1uring the April Term 1908 of this court only five are Catholic and all are in favor of local optijon and are known as dry men and of the twen tyfour names drawn from iv hich the grand jury is to be selected for the April term only seven are Catholic and all are advocates of local option and known as dry men That affi ants are opposed to the enactment and execution of local option laws and are opposed to being tried by jury men who are partisan on the subject of local option R N WATHEN Sworn to before me by R N Wathen this the 22d day of April 1908 TM B SPALDING Clerk r B JV r JUDGE THURMANS OPl ION R N Wathen one of the defen dants herein has filed an affidavit set ting forth the reasons actuating the defendants in asking that the regular judge vacate the bench The filing of such an affidavit im poses upon a judge a most embarrass ing and certainly a most unpleasant duty that of passing on the question of the sufficiency of the affidavit to justify him in declining to perform- a duty imposed on him by law and by his acceptance qf the office to which he has been regularly elected by the people Under the Constitution and laws of the State the qualified voters of the districts elect the man whom they de sire to preside over their court and in the trial of all causes civil aijd criminal that may be brought there for trial No man is eligible to the office unless he has been a member of the bar for such a time as that he has presumably at least a certain standard of proficiency in legal learning and consequently welldefined opinions as to the laws to be admin istered When elected he is required to take a solemn oath lo administer those laws without fear or favor with equal measure to the rich or the poor and impartially to all When any plaintiff or defendant in a case pending in the court has rea son to believe that the judge so selected by the people In the manner provided by the Constitution will not In the particular case perform those duties in the manner contemplated by the law he has a right to set out the facts inducing that belief in an affi davit and file it In every case in which a party in good faith questions the impartiality of the judge that officer would if he should follOwhlspersonal inclinations decline to preside but if the ground alleged were not such as the law requires he woujd be violating his oath of office if he should without legal cause evade a duty because his performance would be unpleasant to him The law imposes upon a judge the duty of determinipg In the first in stance the sufficiency of the affidavit and then the further duty of vacating the bench if the reasons are suffi dent or decline to vacate if they are not sufficient This duty is the most delicate and embarrassing that a judge In our State has to perform for the reason that In a certain sense lie must decide In a matter personal- to himself but the question must be decided either by the judge or the litigant it Is personal to both and the law Imposes the duty on the judge For another reason the duty Is unpleasant and embarrassing for It may be difficult for the judge in every case to prevent his judgments being influenced to some extent at least by his own consciousness oi freedom from bias and his positive knowledge that thestatements In the affidavit are not founded upon truth yet the law does not relieve him from the duty of striving to form a1 correct judgmen without reference to his own feelings or any knowledge he may have out of the affidavit it self Indeed he can not controvert the truth of any statement in the affidavit which for determining the le IIThe gal duty of the judge must be con sidered as absolutely true its slim Yciency must be considered and determined In the same manner as that of a pleading upon a demurrer filed to it The question then Is In every case f narrowed down to this If every state ment of the affidavit should be true justify the judge in factnvacating bench or require him to do would be sufficient as to one judge would be sufficient as to any other judge in the State and for this reaSon the law wisely denies to litigants and to judges the privilege of having cases trIed oy other than judges elected by the peo ple of the district unless the fats conditions affecting a particular t case are such that an ordinarily hon and impartial official would con sciously or unconsciously be so in fluenced in the performance of his du ties as to fall below the standard of v impartiality demanded by the law for all litigantS 1 That a judge may be mistaken In his opinion of the law is a ground for reversing his decision in the Ap t pellate Court welch is provided for the express purpose of correcting such mistakes but it has never been considered necessary or even proper that a judge should decline to enforce the law as he construes it merely because a litigant or his counsel may differ from him in its construction The reasons that would justify him in vacating Jhe bench must be such as would probably affect his judgment to such an extent in the particular case as to cause a different appllca tion of the law to the facts in the case from its application in all other cases involving similar facts but dif ferent parties I have given careful thought to the consideration of the affidavit filed by b Mr Wathen in this dase and have endeavored to divest myself so far as possible from any influence or per sonal fee ingor of personal knowl edge as to the truth or falsity of the t statements and to consider it as F v would if the judge and parties Inc volved were unknown to me and H had no other information than theaf fidavit itself and the record in the case The avferment is made that the presiding judge has extreme and uItea sonable aversion bias and prejudice against the law permitting the sale of whisky and any one engaged in the manufacture or sale thereof This Is the statement of a conclusion the mere opinion formed by the affiant from words or acts of the judge The Court of Appeals has expressly de dared that such a statement or a con elusion is not aground for demanding a special judge for the reason that the matter is to be determined not by the varying standards of whatIs reasonable existing in the minds of the various litigants but by the stan dard contemplated by the law and de f clared by the courts The affidavit proceeds to set out several facts alleged as evidence of blind and unreasonable bias which oj will be taken up in the order in which thy are presented r 1 That the presiding judge though a resident of another county actively assisted the advocates of local Option In carrying the election which result ed in a majority vote for local option in Lebanon Ky in March 1907 I believe that no wellinformed citizen would seriously assert the proposi ion that a man after accepting the office of judge wbuld dIsqualIfy him self from performing the duties per taining thereto by thereafter advis ipg persuading and actively urging j the legislators or the people to repeal t ia- n existing law that he may deem in jurious or unwise or to enact a new law that he may honestly believe r would promote the public welfare this reason then need not be further f considered 2 The affidavit charges asvlrlent and bitter language against per sons engaged in the business of sell ing whisky the statements made by the presiding judge in a public speech advocating local option in substance that If local option was voted by a majority of the people of the city of Lebanon he

office imposed upon the judges and a statement by a judge Q in a public spee4or on any other occasion all the ma chinery of his counts enforce the laws that may be enacted by the proper authority is but a statement that he will do what he solemnly swore to do when he accepted the office A bon- O Vtrary statement or even an intention to violate his official duty by refusing to enforce a particular law would ii p ovenbe sufficient cause for 4m 3 It is alleged rin the affidavit in 0 peachment v isubstance and for the purpose of this case must be treated as true that on the day previous to the hold ing of the local option election In Leb anon the leaders of the local option k movement including the circuit judge concurred in determining to arrest all the leading and active opponents of local option including one of the de 4 fendants in this case by this means to intimidate and deter all advocates rof whisky so far sis possible that portioncof the law applicable to the situation in which consultation and investigation the circuit judge took an active 1 part it was determined that a charge should be preferred against the lead f ing opponents of local option char ing them with conspiracy to brib voters and collect money for that put pose and to intimidate voters on the day of electipn and that the circuit judge was the originator of the idea of making the charg4 and procuring the arrests that the affidavit wa4 drawn by Hon J P Thompson who ds one of the oldest and most highly Lebanoriflbaplaced in the hands of an arresting officer to be executed as in other cases and that the charge contained in the warrants was false in fact not based upon truth ando indictments were found in the chare While all these statements must be considered as true their meaning is not to be extended beyond the neces sary import of the language used for the same reason that tin considering a pleading upon a demurrer it must be construed most strongly against the pleader the presumption being that as no issue is made the pleaderi strongIly as the truth would permit The r5 ubstance then of this statement is that all the leaders fojr local option liad certain information which after jprards proved to be incorrect but there is nowhere any intimation that 2iny of them at the time doubted its truth That after an investigation re considerable tIme as to the 1aw they all concurred in the belief 5that a large number of antilocalop tion men including pne of 4these de Ifendants were guilty of a conspir acy to bribe voters etc and that to deter them and tll others from en gaging in bribery 4 or thej intimidation of voters they ought to be arrested Iand prosecuted that warrants were procured and arr sts made but that I the grand jury that convened a month afterwards and

Miles Medical CO Elkhart Ind it sumed that the arresting officer did his duty by returning the warrants to an examining court and that the examining court did Its duty by in vestigating to see if there was a prima fade case against the defend ant if a releaseonsuer investiga tion had rea onably certain that a statement ctf fact would have been inGOrporkted in the affidavit I To deter men from violating the law against bribery at an election can not be considered an unvorthy motive for securing the arrest of men who ire on reasonable grounds believed to have conspired to violate it even though they may escape conviction or even indictments Certainly to ad yise such an arrest from such a tion would not disqualify a man tromf presiding as Judge in every other ase in W either of the arrested per sons should bea party Yhile the affidavit states that the produring of the arrests was the re suit of ill will on the pact of the cir cult judge was not in good faith but for the purpose of humiliating the ar rested parties these are mere conclusions of the affiant for which no fact is alleged further than that the charge was in fact not founded on truth and no indictments were returned f The affidavit contains several allegations of humiliating occurrences connected with the conduct of the ar resting officer of a negro speaker of the chaplain of the penitentiary arid ofa large crowd of people on the streets There is no allegation that the circuit judge was present or that he attempted to exercise any eon trol over the arresting officer as to the manner of executing the warrant in his hands or that he could even have foreseen all the details of the arrest and subsequent proceedings He certainly was not responsible forth fact of Air Wathens being sick nor for the arresting officers failure to provide some means of riding from the place of arrest to the station house nor can he be held responsible languageIindulged in his absence by others over whom he had no controL- 5 Another of the grounds Includ ed in the affidavit as being evidence of a blind and unreasonable bias and prejudice is the statement that in anther county in the trial of the case Of the Commonwealth v Adams Express Co and Murray the judge on refusIng a peremptory instruction- said in substance that in cases in volving a charge of violating the local option law if any doubt arose he vould solve it in favor of the Com monwealth that if parties jgo un whipped of justice it would be by the verdict of the juries and that if he were on the juries he would fiqd away to convict them For thfe purpose of this case the al legations must be takei as true but tlie evidence in that case not being given it does not follow that the re fusal tp give the peremptory instruc tion was even error That such an instruction should be refused where there is any evidence whatever from yhich a jury might reasonably Infer that a scheme or device to evade the law had been resorted to has been expressly declared by the Court of Appeals and the language quoted in die connection in which ft is alleged to have been used wpuld in substance amount only to saying that if there should be a failure of justice- it would be the fault of the juries not the judge who would follow the rule laid down by the Court of Appeals and thatjf he were on the juries jus ticp would be applied No one goes linwhipped of justice save a guilty patty released and innocent defend aidacquittedhas justice meted out to him IlL The affidavit includes the state might that the citizens and voters of thel county are about equally divided in religious conviction between Cath olic and Protestant faith and that the Catholics ae opposed both to the en acthienlanil the onforcement of sump tuary laws including the local option lawl That he jury commissioners se lected by curt held ten months after the local ption law was voted in Lebltnon ware known as dry men were rj2tetants and partisan advo cates of local option laws that the riamijs for grand and petit jurors placed in the wheel by the jury com niissjoners tlKre were drawn for this term of court the names of fortyeight Protiestants and twelve Catholics all of 4viiom are in favor of enforcing the locaf option laws This statement must be taken as true must stand on tne authority of Mr Wathen though It is difficult to apply the rule and coil sider as true the two apparently con tradid tory statements that all Catholics are opposed to the enforcement of locil option laws and that the twelve Cathd ics drawn for jury service at this trm are all in favor of such laws and of their enforcement The affi davit does not charge the circuit judge with having selected jury corn i misslq ers or Jurors on account of t t SI iZ their religioub affiliations and there fore the religion of the jurors is in teresting only as a coincidence The Constitution guarantees that there shall be no discrimination between citizens on account of religion and in the absence of a direct and positive charge it must be assumed that the circuit judge did not consider the re ligious faith of any jury commissioner or juror It is to be regretted that any one should publicly complain of a judge for no having violated the Constitution and his oath of office by considering religionoH politics in selecting jury commissioners or jurors for his court It isio be believed that any juror whether Protestant or Catholic would be influenced in making his verdict by his own religious opinions or those of any One else nor is it to be assumed that honest citizens of any or no religious belief will violate their oath by refusing to enforce an existing law simply be cause they had opposed its enactment or that they would convict an innocent man because they believed the law he was charged with violating was a good law r7 It is charged in ihej affidavit as an evidence of blind andmreasonable bias and prejudice u l the part of the judge against the whisk business that his opinion up to the January term 1908 of the Marion Circuit Court ten months after the local option law went into effect in Lebanon was that manufacturers were especially exempt from the operating of the law that he afterwards during the same term changed his opinion and modified his instructions to the grand jury telling them that as he then understood the law to be m nufac turers were guilty of a violation of law if they sold whisky by the barrel to clubs of men knowing at the time that it was to be divided among the members of the club in quantities less than five gallons There is no alle gation that such change of opinion is not real npr that it was induced by any other consideration than the information then acquired that the Court of Appeals had construed the law in a recent case and declared it- t be as set out in the second instruction to the grand jury in January 1908 instead of as the judge had previously thought it to be The fact that the judge up to January 1908 according to the statement of the affidavit believed manufactur ers specially exempt from the local option law is rather conclusive evi dence that in previously advocating the local option law for Lebanon he was not actuated by bias or prejudice against the defendants as manufacturers who would not be affected In their businss by its adoption or de teat It is T rther evidence of a con virixiing character that he was not act ated by bias or prejudice against these defendants in construing or ap plying the law for he had erred in construing it in their favor until the Court of Appeals had settled the prop er construction to be placed upon it throughout the State That a circuit judge would give evidence of bias or prejudice by changing his opinion of the law to conform to the declaration of the highest court hi the State will not be seriously asserted by any one That a circuit judge should vacate the bench because he determined to comply with his Qath of office by en forcing any and all existing laws un til they are repealed by the lawmaking power is proposition that can not be sanctioned or approved by any court The defendants in thesecases it mUff be remembered are not Indicted for a violation of any provi sion of the local oponl w but for selling whisky without license in quantities less than five gallons There is no allegation that the judge at any time gave expression to any word Indicating personal ill will or prejudice against either of de1 fendants The law under which they are to be tried has been on the stat ute books of tn State for many years it is not partof the local option law It is difficult to understand how it could be thought a duty on the part of the judge to vacate the bejich be cause he had advocated the enact ment of that other law and is in favor of enforcing it whenever and iwherever hi this judicial district it may be violated The local Option law is in force jiitas the various other laws of our State and its observance is binding upon all citizens alike so long as it remains in force No one having prOIer or any regard for the duties of citizens or for our form of government with its guarantees of equal protection of the laws thellowestjudge vacating the bench the fact stated in the affidavit In these cases as the last ground relied on namely that these defendants are opposed not merely to the enactment of this law butt that they are opposed to its enforcement and are opposed to being tried by courts or juries who are in favor of its enforcement No one is punishable for being opposed to the fh enforcement of the law but if he should at any time be formally harged with a violation of it he cannot escape trial before a court and jjury organized for the sole purpose of enforcing the law ofreleasing the innocent convicting the guilty and thereby protecting the whole com munity and bound by the sanction of a solemn oath to perform that very dutySFor the reasons indicated the affi davit must be held insufficient and I must decline to vacate the bench I H THTJRMAN Judge Marion Circuit Cour- tEndOrsedFiled in court this May 4 1908 TOM B SPALDING Clerk j By Louis P Spalding D C COUNTER AFFIDAVITS-

and impartial At the hist term of thcGreen Circuit Court I was retained to assist in the defense of eighteen prosecutions involving Infrac tions of tile local option law and in the trial of such cases as were tried at said term of said court Judge Thurman fully recognized the rights of manufacturers and wholesale dealers who In good faith and in the usual course of trade sold by the wholesale in

a vote on the Stevens bill to lace wood pulp on the free hst1J1 the course of a cleverly humorous and sa tirical speech he unrolled and held up i to view the following petition jto Speak er Cannon bearing the signatures of 164 of the 166 Democratic members representatives self and each for each of tHe others that you recognize one of us youIIprefer some other representative to move to discharge

I knew every one of you who introduced a bill meant what you said Quoting the lines from the old hymn nTheMr Williansproceeded If you haye been in any manner bulldozed why think for a second think of what a short life we live here and how im wrtant it is we should he doing things while we live in this brief day of our time I express a hope that at least thirty of you may sign a pe petitionbecause names of Champ Clark and De Armond and Underwood and John Wesley Gaines and all these vile publicans and sinners on this side getup one of your own We can add the two together If thirty of you sign the speaker cannot refuse because you together with us will then constitute a majority of the house of representatives Early in the session when the rules were being adopted the speaker was asked if a majority of the house made arequest to the speaker whether that request would be heeded andhis reply as Jt re member it was a majority of the ysbeput thirty names to our 166 and consti tute 196 a

with several raits of logs but owing to the high water were un HighIIgallons of whisky and all got drunte it is said and spent Sunday in drinking and gambling on one of the rafts Rens fro states that the man he shot was coming at him with an ax and that he had to either shoot him or jump into the river and as he could not swim he was compelled to use his pistol A singular thing about the affair is that on the day before the man who was shot gave Renfro two cartridges with poisoned bullets to put into his pistol telling him that if he ever had to shoot anybody these bullets were sure death if they drew blood The man is now lying at a house in the river bottom and if it happened that he was struck by one of these poisoned bullets according to his own story there will he no saving him UNCLE JALft Writes About the Weather and drops In Illinois Blue Mound 111 May 7 1908Edi tor SunWill try to write a few lines this gloomy day It has been raining for the last five days coming from the East and North and is disagreeably cold Have had heavy rains and storms for two nights and I dont think I ever saw as much water standing on the land As I sit here and look out over this farm of four hundred acres I am satisfied that onethird of it is covered with water could run a skiff in the ditches along the read Nothing seems to be enjoying the presentsituation- but the frogs They seem to be holding a great carnival Perhaps we could en joy it too if we were an amjhibeous animal but as we are not built that way we tooklout on the stormy weather the vast sheets of water and the black mud At a time like this all business is suspended The roads are almost impassa ble for we have no pike roads here If we had solid roadsthe farmers could jbe hauling off grain when they could not plow But if will be a good many ays before this water seeps off through the tiling and the lands gets veryIdant hills and gurgling rills that carry the surplus water away They are more beautiful to me than these vast prairies but they are very productive and there is great wealth here Land sells from 100 to 5175 per acre and there are railroads and interburbans in all directions Corn is the principle crop here Itis a sight to those that never saw acorn sheller in operation A wagon is backed up spoutIand in four minutes it is filled and- starts for the great elevator Some times it takes 30 or 40 wagons to transport the corn trom the shelter to the elevator in town But I hope ere I write again these dark ominous clouds will thatI away and the sun will send forth his radiating rays and dry up the land and send cheer and hope into the hearts of the people for there is no farming done yet only the oat crop is sown But I must say that wheat is looking well and a fine prospect for fruit but I am fearful of the fruit when the clouds break away for we arelikely to have a hard frost We see that Central Kentucky had a big snowfall lately but we did not have any snow at the time Mr Gore I get a

who visited the property in his report issued by the United States Geological Survey made j the startling statement that there are but two ledges of rock like it in the world one in Bavaria which has been supplying 4 millions of dollars worth of the product annually to lithographic printing presses in every civilized nation on the globe thee jother in Kentucky The hill is estimated to be worth into the hundreds of millions of dollars Think of itt One acre of the ground of the 9 foot ledge of lithographic stone at the average selling price per pound would bring more money tl1 nan acre l of wheat would yield by harvesting a crop every year for two hundred thousand years t A Simple Proposition After All Products that are rare and high priced are so because of their scarcity Itis difficult to believe that rock in any form especially when found ina ledge so tretpendous in area that it will take 500 years to exhaust sells from 11 to 50 cents per poundt but such is a fact and iS only

sobbing as if his heart would break Sam Pitchet appeared at that moment gave the huddled fig ire one contemptuous look and soon the buckboard was rousing the thick dust to float in the late afternoon sun Above he long road home to the farm Back at the farm any glamour he might have possessed for the family or neighbors now had fallen from Kousna seasontearly and late and as Sam Pitcher ad mitted He purt near arned his board and clothes He was very silent and held aloof from all with a pride they could not understand Exhausted he dragged himself to his makeshift bed at night and weailly he rose in the morning to stagger through another day Soon the farm event thrashing day drew on arid from dawn he had tossed sheaves with the men of the region gathered to help Sam Pitcher The slow dark of a summer night was closing down when the hum of the engine ceased and the roar of the thrasher sounded not again The women were laughing about the house preparing the final snack and by the pump under the windmill the wearYJnen were washing off the cling ing dust of the wheat Far away across the prairie appeared a cloud of dun on the line of the road and it came nearer and nearer At last from the center of it emerged the outline of an old white horse and a spring wago Tatnt nobody coming here No rig I know said Lucy Pitcher pausing an Instant But the white horse and spring wagon turned in at the gate and an abashed man dressed in a shoddy best climbed down and came toward the house Under his arm was a parcel wrapped in red calico I jing roared Spence If it haint Fred What in damnation you jcloin way down here Fred jiiie other men were coming around the house and the women were group ing on the porch Fred seemedat a loss for a moment but said Oh I just come down to see Sam Pitcher

harmony with the choir ot Ws little folks of the grass sped a sweet simple air of his own valley beneath the shadow of the Carpathians Cumbersome as were tHe hands that had done Sam Pitchers bidding for months they moved like TTame as in another moment he swept into a triumphal improvisation that dazzled the crude minds of those who heard But they listened and still they lis tened At last the bow paused and Kousna bowIng his head encompassed the Instrument in his arms Sam Pitcher stepped forward and raised his fade so that the last light of the west struck it fairly Said he Boys I been a durn
