religious faith is purely his own private concern and not a matter for general discussion anti political discrimination says President Roosevelt in a letter he has made public in which he answers nu merous correspondents The presi dent says he deferred the publication of the letter until now to avoid any agitation likely to influence the election President Roosevelts letter which is addressed to J C MartinDaytpn 0 begins with numerous extracts froth letters received by him during the campaign the tenor of which were the reportsthat nudgeT4ft4s- an infidel Unitarian fhtitw- ife and brother are Roman Catho lics the inference being that If he is in sympathy with the Roman Catholic church on account of his wife and brother being members of that faith it would be an objection toa sufficient number of voters to defeat him and if on the other hand he is an infidel that would be sure to de feat him To these objections President Roosevelt replies in part as You ask that Mr Taft fonowaI the world know what his religious belief is That is purely his own private concern and it is a matter between him and his Maker a matter for his own conscience and toreIquire it to be made public pen alty of political discrimination is to negative the first principles bf our government which guarantees com plete religious liberty and the right to each man to act in religious affairs as his own conscience dictates Mr Taft never asked my advice in the matter but if he had asked it I should have emphatically advised him against thus stating publicly his religious belief The demand for statement of a candidates religious- belief can have no meaning excepr that there may be discrimination for or against him because of that belief Discrimination against the holder of one faith means retaliatory discrimi nation against men of other faiths The inevitable result of enteringII upon such a practice would abandonment of our real freedom o conscience and a reversion to the dreadful conditions of religious dis sension which inso many lands have proved fatal to true liberty to true religion and to all advance In civilizationCites Abraham Lincoln To discriminate against a thor oughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church or because like Abraham Lincoln he has not avowed his allegiance to any church is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life You are entitled to know whether a man seeking your suffrages is a man of clean and upright life honorable in all his dealings with his fellows and fit by qualification and purpose to do well in the great office for which he is a candidate but you are not enti tied to know matters which iio pure ly between himself and his Maker If it is proper or legitimate to oppose a man for being a Unitarian as was John Quincy Adams for instance as is the Rev Edward Everett Hale at the present moment chaplain of the senate and an American of whose lfe all good Americans are proudthen- it would be equally proper to support or oppose a man because of his views on justification by faith or the meth od of administering the sacrament or the gospel of salvation by works So much for your objections to Mr Taft because he is a Unitarian Now for your objections to him because you think his wife and brother to be Roman Catholics As it hap pens they arenot but if tney were or if he were a Roman Catholic him self it ought not to affect In the slighest degree any mans supporting him for the position of president You say that the mass of the voters that are not Catholics will not sup port a man for any office especially for president of the United States who Is a Roman Catholic I believe that when you say this you foully fander your fellow countrymen Several States Are Catholic Sscha consideration should never be treated as a reason for either supporting or opposing a candidate for a political office Are you aware that there are several

I know particularly well waS one man of Jewish taith who repre sented a district in which there were hardly any Jews at all All of those men by their very existence in polit ical life refute the slander you have uttered against your fellow Americans I believe that this republic Win endure for many centuries If so there will doubtless be among its presidents Protestants and Catholics and very probably at some time Jews I have consistently tried while president to act in relation to fellow Americans of catholic faith as I hope that any future president who happens to be a Catholic will act to wards his fellow Americans of Prot estant faith Had I followed any oth er course I should have felt that I was unfit to represent the Americans people MIn my cabinet at the present may ment there

Airline Route Across Ocean Sure Come New York is destined to be the great air port of the world The magnificent harbor which has at the ships from parts of the world will serve equally well when we navigate the air We will be crossing the Atlantic oceans in three or four years At first it will be done by some adventurous sports man but as our airships are improved and we grow more confident and skilled in handling airships their practicalcommercial value will appear Some day we will see great airships after making the trip from Europe in incredibly short time hovering over our harbor and lowering their great boatlike baskets or cabins into the water while tugs will bring them alongside the docks to land their passengers and The future of the airship it seems to me lies in some improved form of the dirigible balloon The development of this form has been carried further than in the case of the aeroplane I am rather skeptical as to the commer f vial value of the aeroplane at least for a long time to come The dirigible balloon travels further and if not as fast at least with more certainty The French and German governments have accomplished much with their war balloons They will stay aloft hours where the aeroplane will stayup for minutes At the present stage of their development they are the more practical machine The lifting powers of balloons may be increased indefinitely by build ing larger bags As we learn to control them better there is no reason why they should not be used as commercial machines There is today a very general terror of the balloon and aerial navigation in general but this will disappear largely as the airships become more familiar I have made 1280 ascensions and taken up nearly 600 persons without serious mishap In time aerial navigation will grow safer as in the case of any other means of locomotion The airship is by no means as dangerous a vehicle peoplesimagine When accidents occur it is usually due to carelessness or ignor juice just as in the case of automobiles The time has come when the pilots or navigators of airships should be governed by explicit laws I pur pose having some such legislation presented at Albany this fall No one should be allowed to go who has not received a pilots license and proved his ability as an engineer At present pilots license is granted to any one who has made ten ascensions one at nightand has been passed by two regularly licensed pilots I would suggest that the en gineer on a dirigible or aeroplane be licensed in the same way l of Art in Ij COUNT TOLSTOI i tracted all freight up a Art of the futurethat is to say such part of art as will be chosen from among all the art diffused among mankindwill consist not in transmitting feelings acces sible only to members of the rich classes as is the case today but in transmitting such feelings as embody the highest religious perception of our times Only those productions will be considered art which transmit feelings drawing men together in brotherly union or such universal feelings as can unite all men Only such art will be chosen tolerated approved and diffused But art transmit ting feelings flowing from antiquated wornout religious teachings church art patriotic art voluptuous art transmitting feelings of super I jBtitious fear of pride of vanity of ecstatic admiration of national heroes art exciting exclusive love of ones own people or sensuality win be considered bad harmful art and will be censured and despised by public opinion All the rest of art transmitting feelings accessible only to a see fcion of people will be considered unimportant and will be neither blamed iior praised And the appraisement of art in general will devolve not as IB now the case on a separate class of rich people but on the whole people ao that for a work to be esteemed good and to be approved of and diffused it will have to satisfy the demands not of a few people living in identical t and often unnatural conditions but it will have to satisfy the demands of all those great masses of people who are situated in the naturalconditions of laborious life The artist of the future will live the common life of men earning jha subsistence by some kind of labor The fruits of that highest spiritual strength which passes through him he will try to share with the greatest possible number of people for in such transmission to others of the feel ings that have arisen in him he will find his happiness and his reward The artist of the future will be unable to understand how an artist whose chief delight is in the wide diffusion of his works could give them only in exchange fora certain payment And the artists producing art also will not be as now merely a few j people selected from a small section of the nation members of the upper classes and their hangerson but will consist of all those gifted members of rrr the whole people who prove capable of and are inclined towardartistic activity Artisticactivity then will be accessible to all men It will become i accessible to the whole people because in the first place in the art of the future not only will that complex technique which deforms the productions of the art of today and requires so great an effort and expenditure of time t riot be demanded but on the contrary the demand will be for clearness Simplicity and brevityconditions mastered not by mechanicalexercises tut by the education of taste And secondly artistic activity will become accessible to all men of the people because instead of the present profession al schools which only some can enter all will learn music and depictire art singing and drawing equally with letters in the elementary schools and in such a way that every many r having received the first principles of drawing and orEthe other of the arts will be able to perfect himself r in it Another difference will be that art will not be i produced by professional artists receiving payment for 4 tacit work and engaged in nothing else besides their art The art of the future will be produced by all mem berg of the community who feel the need of such activ ity but they will occupy themselves with artonly when fceT feel such needI r FATHER CARRIED IN EFFIGY Mock Attention Paid by brides Party to Bridegrooms Relatives Is Indian Custom There is a curious custom still

PALACE WAITED A Suggestion That Changed the Plans of a Pope At a time when there was great suffering among the people from lack of food and when famine In its worst form was threatened Pope Alexander VI had made arrangements for the erection of a magnificent palace The beat architects had been employed and the plans had been submitted and ac cepted and an accomplished builder had been sent for to come from Venice a man whose work had won for him renown and who was known to be a just and upright man The builder had arrived and at an appointed time he waited upon his holiness to receive the plans and make his estimates There Is one thing yet to be done said the pope There has been no proper inscription or leg end thought of to be placed over the main entrance of the palace It should be put above the great gate You have had experience Do you think of an in scription that would be appropriate- If your holiness would pardon me for the liberty I might suggest one most appropriate at this time You are pardoned in advance said the pope smiling Now what shall it be Sovereign pontiff let It be tbtis Command that these stones be made bread The pope was visibly and deeply af fected He paid the builder munifi cently for his expenses of coming and going and instead or building his pal ace he fed the hungry ones of his children Poverty Has Its Advantages A man on the wane of life

ago there was a Bunion meeting of the various chur ches at the First Presbyterian Church to hear Mr Lawrence AY Malm Sec v retary of the Associated Charities pf Lexington speak on the subject of systematic charities After the acl dress a committee representing the v several churches of the city was ap pointed to consider the formation of a Winchester Associated Charities At the first meeting 4 the commit tee it was decided before definite acv tioa was taken to endeavor to se cure the cooperation of the Ira ternal societies of the city in order inauguratedtshould have if possible the support of all glasses of our citizens No definite decision has yet been arrived at but we understand that there is some difference of opinion on the subject some thinking that we have very few poor here and there fore do not need the society others that the various organizations which are imow in existence are sufficient M lo do the work We were particularly impressed with the need of such an organization froin reading in Sundays Lexington Herald the reports of the president i and secretary of that citys Associat ed Charities Dr Charles Lee Rey iiolds pastor of the Second Presby terian Church the president says t among other things To the Public In presenting my first report as president of the Asso ciated Charities I am obliged to con 1fens that I am impressed after al jnosta gears service with the great ifess of the work our Association is deid and the little knowledge the people generally have of that work two ideas have been urmer- Tnnolriris y r Tmr mind during the last year Before assuming the obligation put upon me by the boardJ Jdnano conception whatever of the big things done by the Associated Char ies I was ignorin of the trp jnendous results accomplished and I suppose that today hundreds of good in Lexington are just as ig norajnt as I was Now the respon sibilities and the opportunities look so Idrge I am appalled My greatest MKltfor the Association is that it weretips supported r e asTc the public that instead of giving indiscriminate charity upon the street this money so often thrown away shall be given to us to enable us to investigate all and scientifically treat the cases that are thosefthem to us let us do your charity for you We l are in that business it is our work forIyptir troublesome charity cases we expect you to help by giving

regard to the real cause of destitution or condi r Mat Lions is not only not right but is positively wrong Personal effort to the extent yof ones ability is the first es sential mark of merit in charitable beneficence l Friendly visiting therefore has added to the beneficence of the work Some twenty ladies from six churches of the city have volunteered to visit at frequent intervals one or more families who need and appreciate the friendliness and encouragement these visitors can give them Employment during these seasons of business depression lies been nut usually hard to secure and apply cants are making a constant call up on the Charities for assistance in this line Positions have been secured the past year for 77 Persons through the departmentThe assisted during the year constitute 42 percent of the en tire number of requests The widows and widowers number 32 per cent those separated or deserted number 10 er cent and those cohabiting number 4 per cent of the entire num ber who apply The large number of widows is largely due to the result of old slave families and receive the kindest consideration from the well todo white families It is estimated that 1577 individuals were included in the families who applied for as sistance the past year and of this number 152 were transcient Those who have given the subject of charitable giving any considera tion at allor who have read to any extent the views of those who have devoted their lives to the work will realize the evil of indiscriminate charity t As Mr than said Tjie right of this association to exst depends upon its aim to help the unfortunate and worthy poor the needy aged and the helpless sick But in each case to assist them in coming to selfsupport and thereby maintain their selfrespect The hap hazard way of taking up a subscrip tion or collection for the reported poor without regard to the real cause of destitution or conditions is not only not right but is positively wrong We understand that to establish an Associated Charities here will take from 35 to 50 per month for the salary and other incidentals ofan experienced secretary Ye believe there should be no hesitation in trying the plan The next four or five months will be severe ones Many will need assistance The city has its poor and needy It is large enough to snort such an organiza lion The saving in indiscriminate giv ing will more than pay the cost of such an organization Our city is growing fast It is riot r as it was ten or fifteen years ago when everybody knew everybody else and neighbors could aid neighbors who needed a little help Many are strangers and their needs are not known A person employed to look after such things can investigate and see that the little money is given wise ly Several thousand dollars have been expended in charity each winter by our various churches our socie ties and our fraternal orders Much of its js given unwisely since it was given without adequate investiga tion Wbnld it not be better to sys tematize the work and have one con trial authority control it all As it is now some families or in dividuals will be yelped one week by perhaps several organizations and in the next week they will receive no help at all Let us get together and see that the little aid we give is done systematically Dependent individ uals or families will be found work will be encouraged to seek po sitions and will to that extent leave more to be distributed to other needy cases The poor will be encouraged to work their selfrespect will be maintained Winchester is in the frpefront as a hustling uptodate city It should take italrlsrt this question as it does every other one that is resented for its improvement arid u building CI lL SERVICE Kentticky must have a civil service lawr jt short step in this direction was taken at the recent session of the Legislature when the nonpartisan Board of Control of the charitable institutions was provided for There will norlbnger be a clean sweep of all employees wheii there is a Change of hdmhnstration There is now some chance of an efficient employe being retained ho matter Vhat his politics One of the moving causes of this legislation was the duty Kentucky owed i to the unfortunate wards of the State But we should got a step farther A capable and efficient employe should be assured of his position This editorial is suggested by a News dispatch of yesterday which stated that the Prison Commission had raised 5000 for the recent cam paign This money came from the employees of the State They were compelledwillingly or unwillingly to contribute to the fund Their posi tions depended on their responding to the call Both parties pursue the same tactics We venture to say that there was not an employee at Frank fort who did not give up his mite for the campaign fund in the recent dice tion The scandal of these compulsory contributions forced finally the pass ing ofa National Civil Service law Grover Cleveland when president first made the law efficient There are undoubtedly violations in every election Buttheyarereducedtoamin umum and are conducted secretly and stealthily And neither national party would think for a moment of repealing the present law There is no reason why a guard qt the penitentiary should be forced to aid the Democratic party to win a victory nor should a deputy clerk in Louisville under a Republican chief be made to help carry Kentucky for the Republicans They are both pub lic servants of the whole people of the State The only requirement asked of them should be that they fulfill the duties of their positions honestly and efficiently If either desires to con tribute voluntarily that is a different matter The penitentiary a public charge the clerks office is for the conven ience of the public Allemployees are servants of the people And the people have a right to ask that their servants render to them value for the money paid them MONEY IN ELECTIONS Thirty or more candidates for county offices in Madison have met and agreed that they will not use whiskey money or other illegal influence to gain votes in their re spective races The dispatch says The floaters are disconsolate but the candidates who were on the eve of a tremendous struggle feel a sense of relief and the public gen erally is gratified with the stand taken for a clean primary This is as it should be There is too much money spent unwisely and illegally in elections and in primary contests Each side justi fies its buying of votes by the state ment that fwe must fight the devil with fire But this is not true The evil grows by being fed Many floaters now will not even vote their own convictions unless they are paid to do so We notice that in the Democratic press of Kentucky much is said of the vast amount of money spent by the Republicans to buy the recent electron The Republican press on the other hand asserts vigorously that the Democrats car ried Kentucky by the use of money And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye Or how wilt thou say to thy brother Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye and behold a beam is in thine own eye a It is a sad commentary 6n the fu ture of America if more than a million votes can be bought in a national election For ourselves we do not believe it But there is far foo much money spent bybotb sides It is the duty of gond citi = yens of both par ties toyfrown v upon the practice V c s WANTED TURKEYS yourThanksgivingWill receive

Workingmen While Friends Point to Certain Congres sional Candidates Defeated For AntiUnion Views In His Favor Denver Colo Nov 9 The twenty eighth annual convention of the American Federation of Labor which it is predicted will be the most im portant gathering of delegates of that body in its history began in this city today The political program carried out by the executive council during the recent political campaign and which has generally been referred to as Mr Gompers plan will come up for indorsement Opponents of Sam uel Gompers of more or less strength within the federation are charging him with pernicious political active ity and using other arguments to convince delegates that he has lost standing as a leader of workingmen and that the working classes need expect nothing from congress in the way of legislation if Gompers contin ues at the head of the federation Among those who are expected to lead the fight against the reelection of the federations president is Daniel Keefe of the longshoremens union who was charged with deserting the federations legislative committee and coming out for Taft in consider ation of the promise of political office Although it is difficult to get the temper of the delegates at this time local leaders who will partici pate in the sessions of the conven lion laugh at the idea of Gompers being turned down They point to the defeat of certain candidates for congress known as enemies of labor as a distinct victory to the cause and one to be joyful over in spite of the federations unfruitful support of the Democratic national ticket In addition to this leading question there are a number of matters up for decision mostly relating to internal dissensions of affiliated bodies quarrels over jurisdiction etc Half a dozen

to get out of the way Finally saw a gentleman two ladies attempt to pass and the man actually had to put his hands on the shoulders of three young men and ask them to stand aside so as to let the ladies pass The young men moved stow ly and looked at the man as much is the sleeping chamberr which is why the most dainty and artisti- cFURNITURE t should be selected Our new stock ofChiffoniers

support the heavy burdens he Had assumed If there were to be any returns all that part of it lay in the future and the future could not help him now Yet unless still heavier burdens were laid upon him

part of a transporting machine The machine is composed by a horse a wagon and a road If any one of the three Is poor the machine is poor and ineffective Only a small load can be drawn and that slowly We have been thousands of dollars building up the breed of horses and improving wagons and have al lowed the roads to run down and offset our costly upbreedlng Is it not time we stopped and considered the common sense course to build up all three simultaneously This unique presentation of the necessity of good roads was offered by Horatio S Earle the candidate for governor of Michigan on the Republic an ticket to the autoists road makers GOOD AND BAD ROAD CONTRASTED and farmers which recently held a con vention at Buffalo and it aptly fits the case making a profound impression on the farmers present The same situation exists when the motive pow er of the vehicle Is furnished by an engine he continued so that autoists and farmers are at one on the good roads question The automobile needs a perfect road to accomplish all It Is capable of accomplishing Then let us be sensible and provide the possibility of getting the best out of it The antagonism of the farmer to the automobilist Is entirely unwarrant ed There are some farmers who are as offensive as some automobIlists The product of the automobile fac tories of Michigan sold for 18000000 in a year and 75 per cent came from outside the state from the rich and well to do It went to stockholders and employees and through them to the stores and farmers The industry made possible by the users of automobiles meant a great deal to the farmers of Michigan and It means as much to the farmers of many other states MANKATOS GOOD ROAD Minnesota City Has Made a Mudless and Dustless Pavement Mankato Minn has solved the prob lem of finding a durable pavement at small expense and one that can be used on steep grades as readily as on a level surface First the driveway was narrowed to thirty feet curbed guttered and boule varded Then It was excavated to the depth of six inches and surfaced Five Inches of dry crushed limestone one and a half to two Inches In diameter was put on and rolled down with a ten ton roller Boiling tar from the local gas works was applied until the entire surface was covered Then says the Cement Age a layer of broken stone an inch toI an Inch and a quarter In diameter mixed with coarse gravel was applied on the surface in proportion of three parts of stone to one of gravel This was first mixed dry on a platform and then thoroughly mixed with hot tar and applied on the surface two inches thick and tamped into place to conform with the surface of the street Dry domestic cement was then applied to the surface and the street was again rolled Then a coating of sand was applied and the roller again used The pavement was allowed to stand for two weeks before the street was thrown open to travel The cost was 80 cents a lineal foot to the property owners on each side of the street or rather would have been had the entire cost been assessed against them The street has a practically waterproof pavement six inches thick and it is impossible for the ele ments to attack the surface The pave ment has now stood two winters and shows not the slightest wear It gives off no dust in summer although it Is not sprinkled Automobiles and Good Roads The automobile has become the most important factor in the upbuilding of our public highways and has led to the reconstruction of more miles of good roads than any other conveyance ever Introduced While it may be true that It Is more destructive of highways than any other vehicle It Is equally true that automobiling is only pleasurable upon the best roads man canconstruct Thus it must and shall be that the more automobiles we use the better

other morning Kansas City There is no doubt atI my mind that the oiling of the rock roads is a great economy There has not been a single washout In the roads that were oiled The oil serves to pack the gravel so that it resists the torsion of the flood waters I TORTOISE SHELL Remvf d aIyellowtheI unIIthis That is one vulgar error about shell Another Is that the tortoise Is isIas an error as it would be to say a sheep was killed to get its wool What is done Is this The fisher men having caught a tortoise tie him and then cover his back with dry grass and leaves They set fire to this stuff It burns slowly and the heat causes the thirteen plates of the shell to loosen at the joints With a knife the plates are pried off and afterward the tortoise is set tree The base or root of his shell is intact and will grow again If tortoises were killed to get their shell they would long since have become extinct No no Every tortoise is as It were a farm a shell farm Fishermen catch him regularly and with heat and a knife gently remove his shell New Orleans TimesDemocrat Tho Eyes jof the Camel One of the camelsthe seven were lying just beyond the circle of firelight rose complaining Mustafas Ahmed slipped away upon his duty Presently I heard his guttural cawing to get the camel again to rest but the beast would not down and must be beaten the boy meanwhile mouthing great curses I wondered that a being so small should without peril to him self strike a creature like this with his fist continuing all the time within reach of teeth and hoofs- I will tell the khawaja replied Mustafa a most curious and interesting thing about this Ahmed had mastered the camel and now came to his place Thekhawaja has observed Musta fa continued that a child may beat and command a camel It is not because the camel Is stupid nor yet because he is timid it is because of a wise provision whereby God suited him to the weakness of men The camels eyes are like magnifying glasses and increase the stature of his master seven times wherefore he is obedient to the gigantic appearing creatureIn too I heard this super stition Norman Duncan In Harpers MagazineWiping Out an Army The entire standing army of the
