rather was for the r weeks trade festival is now a thing of the past for this year the motto In Los Angeles This was MadeI t slogan for the week It one more method of advertising of playing up goods which after all is the great point The motto should be taken up by all manufacturing towns and in fact by all towns whether manufacturing or otherwise Prosperity week could be made a festival worthy the name in any American city or village Every point has articles made there or grown there or in some other way identified with that particular town These k could be set forth in attractive fashion The week or if a week were considered too long then the three days or the two days or even the one day or the one evening which could still be called prosperity fair or prosperity day as the case might be could thus be made the occasion of each factory or merchant advertising its or his wares and could be further employed for engendering local public spirit which Is the most powerful help in communityfSpirit Is the thing needed In all this Work of town improvement and local betterment Spirit counts for more than environment Towns are made out of people and a people are only as great or as

over to Admiral Porter Admiral Porter was a sailor in the strict etymological sense of the teem in that he b eltevedI there was nothing like sails as he was In authority he caused the four bladed propellers of the vessels to be removed and replaced by two bladed ones in order that the ships might maneuver better under sail The inefficiency thereby brought about is of course apparent to any engineer as the size of the propeller opening was fixeti and the two bladed screw could not be made large enough A few years later in a report to the department he actually claimed that the vessels were faster under steam with the mutilated screws The facts of course were Just the reverse and when his influence be came less proper propellers were again fitted This was when he was still in his prime and his judgment was at least not Impaired by age About twenty years later when the Roach cruisers were built the dear old man then over seventy went before the naval committee and said that the plans of these vessels were wrong be cause they had only auxiliary sail power In Ills judgment they should have been given full sail power with steam as an auxiliary He was still a sailor The world

halfbwhat its now is inadequate to meet this increased cost of living and de fray the expenses of a Judge in hold ink his courts l Thatmy position on that question tlwas correct I need no better proof than the testimony of Mr Hays him self who when the matter was pending before the Legislature told me repeatedly that the salary ought to be increased and that he hoped it would be done and who as

the workof President Roosevelts newly appointed Country Life Commission has this to say concerning the education of the nonfarming classes In our judg ment the chief obstacle that the American farmer has to contend with today is that the banker the merchant the manufacturer the lawver the doctor the minister the profes sor the artist the legislator and the editor know too little about him and his work We measure the wealth and strength of the United States too much by its rich banks its enormous factories its miles of brillianttheatres its powerful news papers its learned universities Who has built all these and who maintains them I The farmer When do railways pass their dividends when dd newspapers lose their sub scribers when do banks fall into the hands of receivers when do ac tors play to empty benches when do doctors fail to collect their bills when do the universities suffer for funds I When the crops fail Imagine the surface of the world Covered with a coat of asphalt like Fifth avenue Newspapers could bb edited upon it banks couldcash checks upon it automobiles could iVll upon it silk and satin and calico and woolen could be sold upon it surgeons could operate upon it lawyers couldargue upon it but in six months we should all die for lackof milk and bread and moat But the education is by no means to be Confined to the nonfiinninv classes As much educating must be done among the farmers them selves To quote further from the Outlook The existing individualism of the farmer is their greatest eco nomic disadvantage If the farmers would combine in some sort of joint Stock corporation or mutual associations and employ their own dis tributing or selling agent they would get at least a fir division of the profits the lions share ofwhich in many farming industries goes to the middleman And right here in Kentucky much maligned and misrepresented oM State we are and have been for months past working out this prob lem for ourselves demonstrating to the

shown since the sale of the Burley tobacco pooled by the Tobacco Society The amount of fall bedburn menoof years of experience to be unprecedented in all Burley districts the major portion of work in preparation for tobacco is done in the spring when the burning serves a twofold purpose of putting the seed bed in proper working and grow ing condition and of destroying the surface weeds This year the excessive drouth has had the effect of drying out the ground and of killing surface weeds already aid owing to short work due to absence of feed ers farmers have had more time than usual This time has been largely utilized in preparation of beds during the fall rather than next spring From the number of beds which are in course of preparation men in a position to judge claim that the ac reage in 1909 will be unequaled in history unless some concerted ac Hon is taken to limit the acreage Reduced Price Not Expected It is not believed that unless unusual conditions shall obtain there will be a material reduction in the price of the 1909 crop The conditions even with a heavy crop do not warrant a great reduc tion stud a grower yesterday for the 1908 crop was so small as to cut practically

Usually favor pooling the 1909 crop and that the sentiment if any against it is likely to crystalize in the counties of Franklin Henry and Owen So far as can be learned no action has yet been taken relative to con trolling the acreage for 1909 and of course none as to pooling tlie corp when it is set out but men whom The News has interviewed seem to think that if the acreage is to be lim ited the aviation looking to that end should be begun at once and contin ued throughout the winter months and that the Winchester meeting Tuesday will so decide They think if the matter is begun in time

the progressive wing of the Republican party Ifany of the measuers are passed at this session itwilllhave to be with the aid of Democratic votes i Roosevelt again reiterates his lies lief that the great corporations en gaged in interstate business and es pecially the railroads can only be effectually controlled by the national government The Sherman antitrust law should be amended or a new law substituted which should not forbid nIt combinations good or bad but should permit combinations which vare in the interest of the public but I should at the same time give to some agencY oI the national government fullpQwerfof control and supervision overr them Entire publicity should be secured in all matters which the public has a right to know The railways should be put completely under the interstate commerce j comtiiissioh which should have the rightrjto supervise and control the is suance of securities as well as over the raising and lowering of rates Asr r9 gard rates this power should be gummary The interests of the shatfeholcletfs employees and of the shippers should all be guarded as against one another t Corporate finances must be super vised so as to make it far snfer than r at present for the man ofsmall meansio invest his money in stocks prohibitedcv and stock gambling so far as is pos sibl6 discouraged A proper employers liability law should be passed The Judges of the t United States beginning with the Supreme Court should have their salaries doubled Provision should be made that no injunction or temporary restraining order issue from the courts otherwise than on notice except where irrepar able injury would otherwise result and in such case a hearing on the merits of the order should be had within a short fixed period and if not t cncontinuedafter hearing it s yishould forthwith lapse i The forests of the country must be vsavecl for they constitute the first theSconservation of the natural resources of the country Our inland waterways should be looked after not in the present slip shod way but by a comprehensive and farseeing plan A permanent t conunission authorized to coQrdinate 4 et r r- f S H J n w deIpartments to frame and supervise the execution ofa compiehensive plan should be provided f Postal savings banks are now in operation inpractically all the great civilized countries and should be adopted bV the United States The parcel post should be extended on the rural routes The establishment of a local parcel post on rural routes would be to the mutual benefit of the farmer and the country store keeper and it is desirable that the routes serving more than 15000 000000 people should be utilized xto the fullest practiable extent The ciyil service law should he extended to the census bug reams Statehood should be granted Arizona arid New Mexico The ocean mail act should be amended so that satisfactory American ocean mail lines to South America Asia the Philippines and Australasia may be extended Four battleships should be provided for and the general board of the Navy should be by law turned into a general staff so that the Navy should be as efficiently governed as is the Army under the present law These are in the main the chief recommendations of the President In passing he charges the Congress with crippling the secret service The President says that an amendment passed by it which provided that there should be no detail from the secret service and no transfer there from was of benefit to no one except to criminals It seriously hampers the government in the detection of crime and the sec justicea He continues the chief argument in favor of the provision was that the Congressmen did not themselves wish to be investigated by secret ser vice men Very little of such investi gation has been done in the past but it is true that the work of the secret service agents was partly responsible for the indictment and ponviction of a Senator and a Congressman for land fraud in Oreeon Ido not be lieve that it is in the public interest to protect riminals in any branch of the government service and exact ly as we have again and yearsbprosecuted and convicted such cram inalsivhowere in the executive branch of the government we should be given ample means to prosecute them if found in the legislative branch This is straight from the shoulder and ought to make some Congress men situ p and take notice In foreign affairs President Roosevelt says We have behaved and are behaving toward other nations as in private life an honorable man would behave toward his fellows He commends the work on the Panama Canal which is a model for all work of the kind No task of such magnitude has ever before been undertaken by any Nation and no task of the kind has ever been better performed Real pfosfress toward selfgovern men has been made jh the Philippine Islands but no one can prophesy the exact date when it will be wise to consider independence as a fixedand definite policy FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE We

RecDmmeii3 Congressf ATTACKS ANTWRDST LAW Sherman Act Should Be Amended to Permit Combinations Which Are In the Interest of the Public Says the r President Urges Legislation to WageworkersDwellsson Views on the Army and the Navy t Washington Dec SIn his message to congress read to the two houses the president said The financial standing of the nation at the ptesent time Is excellent and the financial management of the na lions interests by the government during the last seven years has shown the most satisfactory results But our currency system is imperfect and it curjraway During the period from July 1 1901I to Sept 30 1908 there has been a surplus of nearly one hundred millions of receipts over expenditures a reduction of the interest bearing debt by ninety millions in spite of the extraor dinary expense of the Panama canal and a saving of nearly nine millions on the annual interest charge This an exceedingly satisfactory showing taxationCorporations cllIgaged ngaihsamI believe that under the interstate clause of the constitution the United States has complete and paramount right to control all agencies of inter state commtce and I believe that the national government alone can exer else this right with wisdom and ef fectiveness so as both to secure justice from and to do justice to the great corporations which are the most Im portant factors in modern business I believe that it Is worse than folly to attempt to prohibit all combinations as is done by the Sherman antitrust law because such a law can be en forced only imperfectly and unequal ly and its enforcement works almost as much hardship as good I strongly advocate that instead of an unwise effort to prohibit all combinations there shall be substituted a law which shall permit combinations which pIIn the Interest of the public but shall at the same time give to some agency of the national government full power of control and supervision over them One of the chief features of this control should be securing entire publicity in all matters which the pub lie has a right to know and further more the power not by judicial but by executive action to prevent or put a stop to every form of Improper favoritism or other wrongdoing The railways of the country should be put completelyunder the interstate commerce commission and removed from the domain of the antitrust laW The power of the commission should be made thoroughgoing so that it could exercise complete supervision and control over the issue of securities as well as over the raising and lower Ing of rates As regards rates at least this power should be Pow terto make combinations and traffic conhupon sion of the commission being first gained and the combination or agreement being published in ally its details The interests of the sharehold ers of the employees and of the shippers should all be guarded as against one another To give any one of them undue and improper consideration is to do injustice to the others Rates must be made as low as is compatible with giving proper returns to all the employees of the railroad from the highest to the lowest and proper re turns to the shareholders but they must not for Instance be reduced in such fashion as to necessitate a cu in the wageS ofwtha employees or th abolition of the proper and legitimate profits of honest Telegraph and telephone companies engaged In interstate business should t be put under the jurisdiction of the interstate commerce commission Amele Rewards For Intelligence It is to the interest of all of us that there should be a premium put upon individual initiative and individual ca pacity and an ample reward for tilE great directing intelligences alone com petent to manage the great business operations of today It Is well to In mind that exactly as the keepI Is the worst enemy of liberty reactionary the worst enemy of brd n lIoihe men who defend the rights of property have most to fear from the fa v wrongdoers of great wealth and tin men who are championing popular rights have most to fear from th6 demagogues who In the name of popu tar rights Wbuld do wrong to and oppress honest business men honest men of wealth

an appeal to tUeold doctrine of states rights na5JoIalgovernment fore to glue It completecontrol over the railroads and other instruments of Interstate commerce is merely a pro posal to carry out to the letter one of the prime purposes if not the prime purpose for which the constitution was founded It does not represent centralization I believe that the more farsighted tolhostility they have displayed during- eth last few years tp regulationand control by the national government of combinations engaged in Interstate buss IfLabo ters affecting la bor and the status of the wageworker- to which I shouldjike to draw your hopeIorIganizationcompanied by an effort to bring about a larger share in the ownership by wageworker of railway mill and factory In farming this simply means that we4 wish to see the farmer own his own land We do not wish to see the farms so large that they become the property of absentee landlords who farm them by tenants nor yet so small that the farmer becomes like a Euro pean peasant The depositors In our savings banks now number over onetenth of our entire population These are all capital ists who through the savings banks loan thei money to the workersthat- is in many cases to themselves to carry on their various industries Postal savings banks will make it easy for the poorest to keep their savings in absolute safety The regulation of the national highways must be such that they sliall serve all people with equal justice Corporate must be supervised so as to s make it far safer than at present for the man of small means to invest his money in stocks There must be prohibition of child labor diminution of woman labor shortening of hours of all mechanical labor Stock watering should be prohibited and stock gambling so far as Is possible discouraged There should be a progressive inheritance tax on large fortunes Industrial edu cation should be encouraged Protection For Wageworkers There Is one matter with which the congress Should deal at this session There should no longer be any palter- ing with the question of taking care of the wageworkers who under our present industrial system become kill ed crippled or worn out as part of the regular Incidents of a given business The object sought for could be achiev ed to a measurable degree as far as those killed or crippled are concerned by proper employers liability laws As far as concerns those vho have been worn out I call your attention to the fact that definite steps toward providing old age pensions have been taken in many of our private Indus triesPending a thoroughgoing investiga tion and action there is certain legislation which should be enacted at once The law passed at the last ses sIon of the congress granting com pensation to certain classes of employees of the government should bp- extended to include all employees o the government and should be made more liberal In its terms In this respect the generosity of the United States toward Its employees compares most unfavorably with that of every country in Europeeven the poorest The terms of the act are also a hardship Izr prohibiting payment in- cases where the accident is in anti way due to the negligence of the em ployee it is Inevitable that daily fa miliarity with danger will lead men to take chances that can be construed into negligence- I renew my recommendation made In a previous message that half hole days be gantedduring the summer to all wageworkers in government em ployII also renew my recommendation that the principle of the eight hour day should as rapidly and as far as practicable be extended to the entire work being carried on by the government The Courts I most earnestly urge upon the congress the duty of increasing the totally inadequate salaries now given to our ats eIreward is so inadequate compared to their work Beginning with the supreme court the judges should have their salaries doubled- It Is earnestly to be desired that some method should be devised for do- Ing away with the long delays which now obtain in the administration of justice and which operate with pecul iar severity against persons of small means and favor only the very criminals whom it is most desirable to pun IshAt the last election certain leaders of organized labor made a violent and sweeping attack uponthe entire jU- diciary of the country an attack couched in such terms as to include the most upright honest and broad minded judges no less than those of narrower mind and more restricted outlook Last year before the house committee on the judiciary these same labor leaders formulated their de wands specifying the bill that cot tained them refusing all compromise stating they wished the principle of that bill or nothing They insisted on a provision that In a labor dispute no injunction should issue except to pro feet a property right and specifically v t J nbusinessproperty right and in a second pro vision their bill made legal ina labor dispute any act or agreement by or between two or more persons that would not have been unlawful if done by a single person In other words this bill legalized blacklisting and boy qemandwasby jury In contempt cases thereby most seriously impairing the authority of the courts All this represented a course of pqlicy which If carriedout would mean the enthronement of class privilege in its crudest and most brutal form and the destruction of one of the most essential functions of the judiciary In all civilized lands jThe wageworkers the workingmen laboring men of the country by the way in which they repudiated the fef fort to get them to cast their votes in response to an appeal to class hatred have emphasized their sound patriotism and Americanism Courts imperiled by Judges But the extreme reactionaries the persons who Wind themselves to theIwrongs now and then committed by the courts on laboring men should also think seriously as to what such a movement as this portends The courts are jeoparded primarily by the action of these federal and state judges who show inability or unwill- Ingness to put a stop to the wrongdoing of very rich men under modern industrial conditions There are certain decisions by various courts which have been exceed- Ingly detrimental to the rights of wageworkers This is true of all the decisions that decide that men and women are by the constitution guar anteed thei liberty to contract to enter a dangerous occupation or to work an undesirable or improper number of hours or to work in unhealthy surroundings and therefore cannot re cover damages when maimed in that occupation and cannot be forbidden to work what the legislature decides Is an excessive number of hours or t carry on the work under conditions which the legislature decides to be unhealthy There is also I think ground for the belief that substantial injustice is often suffered by employees in consequence of the custom of courts issu ng temporary injunctions without notice to them and punishing them for contempt of court In Instances whereas a matter of fact they have no knowledge of any proceedings Pro vision should be made that no injunc tion or temporary restraining order Issue otherwise than on notice except where irreparable injury would other wise result and in such case a hear- Ing on the merits of the order should be had within a short fixed period and if not then continued after hear ing it should forthwith lapse Deci sions should be rendered Immediately and the chance of delay minimized in very way The courts are m be highly commended and stanchly upheld when wrongdoingthey are to be blamed when they Tail to recognize under a government like ours the deliberate judgment of the majority as to a matter of legiti bythenot be permitted to pardon evil and slipshod legislation on the theory that the court will set it right They should tauglft that the right way to get rid fof a bad law Is to have the legislature bylngeniousPeople Themselves to Blame For many of the shortcomings of justice In our country our people as a whole are themselves to blame and the lodges and juries merely bear their share together with the public as a whole It is discreditable to us as a people that there should be difficulty in convicting murderers or in bringing to justice men who as public servants have been guilty of corruption or who have profited by the corruption of pub lic servants The huge wealth thathas been accumulated by a few individuals of re rent ears In what has amounted to i social and industrial revolution has been as regards some of these individ pals made possible only by the improp r use of the modern corporation Cor porations are necessary instruments of modern business They have been permitted to become a menace largely because the governmental representatives of the people have worked slowly iff providing for adequate control over hem Real damage has been done by th manifold and conflicting interpretations of the interstate commerce law Control over the great corporations do Ing interstate business can be effectiv- only If it is vested with full power an administrative department brand of the federal executive carrying out a federal law It can never be effective if a divided responsibility i left In both the states and the nation It can never be effective if left in bands of the courts to be decided by lawsuits The courts hold a place of peculiar and deserved sanctity under our form of government Respect for the law is essential to the permanence of our in stitutions and respect for the law is largely conditioned upon respect for the courts But we must face the fact that there are wise and unwise judges Just as there are wise and unwise ex ecutives and legislators When a president or governor behaves improp gray or unwisely the remedy is easy for his term is short The same Is true with the legislator although not to the same degree With a judge who Joeing human is also likely to prr but whose tenure is for life there is no similar way of holding him to responsibility Under ordinary condi tions the only forms of pressure to Li fj 1 f i t I r b which he is in any was amenable are public opinion sand the action of his istvWhlch we should look for the reform of abuses Forests If there Is any one duty which more than another we owe it to ourchildren and our childrens children to perform at once It is to save the forests of this country for they constitute the first ami most important element in the conservation of the natural re sources of the country Shortsighted persons or blinded to the future bYdesire to thepresentgreat damage would be done by the reckless destruction of our forests Its difficult to have patience with the arguments of these persons Thanks to our own recklessness in the use of iscrossedin this country and no measures that we now take can at least for many years undo the mischief that has already been done But we can prevent further mischief being done and it would be in the highest degree repre hensible to let any consideration of temporary convenience or temporary cost interfere with such action espe cially as regards the natidnal forests which the nation can now at this very moment control The president here cites in support of his contentions the great destruc tion wrought In China by the denuda tion of the forest areas What has thus happened in northern China what has happened in centra Asia in Palestine in north Africa in parts of the lIe 1iterraneancou 1tri s of Europe will surely happen In our country if we do not exercise that wise forethought which should be one of the chief marks of any people calling itself civilized Nothing should be permitted to stand in the way of the preservation of the forests and it is criminal to permit individuals to pur chase a little gain for themselves through the destruction of forests when this destination is fatal tot the well being of the whole country In the futurer Inland Waterways Action should be begun forthwith during the present session of congress for the improvement of our inland wq- terwaysactlonwhich will result in giving us riot only navigable but navigated rivers We have spent hundreds of millions of dollars upon these waterways yet the traffic on nearly all of them Is steadily declining This condition is the direct result of the absence of any compre hensive and farseeing plan of water way improvement Obviously we can not continue thus to expend the rev enues of the government without return It Is poor business to spend money for Inland navigation unless we get it Such shortsighted vacillating and futile methods and accompanied by de creasing water borne commerce and increasing traffic congestion on land by Increasing floods and by the waste of public money The remedy lies in abandoning the methods which have so signally failed and adopting ne ones in keeping with the needs an demands of our people In a report on a measure introduced at the first session of the present con gress the secretary of war saidThe chief defect in the methods Hitherto pursued lies in the absence of execu comprehensivenatural divisions thereof In this opinion I heartily concur Until the work of river Improvement fs undertaken in a modern way It can not have results that will meet needs of this modern nation Thes needs should be niet without furthe- dillydallying or delay The plan which promises the best and quickest results is that of a permanent commission authorized to coordinate the work of al relatingtovise the execution of a comprehensive plan The time for playing with our waterways is past The country de mands results National Parks urge that all ournational parks ad Ir t to national forests be place under the control of the service of the agricultural de partment Instead of leaving them as they are now under the interior department and policed by the army Pure Food alreademate Secret Service intoer in the measure providing fo nthe secret service which provided that there should be no detail from the secret service and no transfer therefrom thesamendment has been of benefit only thee criminal classes The amendment in question was of benefit to no one ex tepting to criminals and it seriously hampers the government in the detection of crime and the securing of jus- tIce It prevents the promotion of em thlsfurtherpresent form the restriction operates only to the advantage of the criminal of the wrongdoer The chief argument Iu favor of the provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to be Invests gated by secret service men Very little of such investigation has been done in the past but It Is true that the work of the secret service agents was partly responsible for the Indictment and con viction of a senator and n congressman for land frauds in Oregon I do riot believe that It Is in the public interest tf J j t I A t to protect criminals in ariyvbranch of rthe public service and exactly as we have again and a llin during the past seven years prbsecuted and convicted such criminals who were in the execu five branch of the government so iu my belief we should be given ample means to prosecute them if found ic the legislative branch 1But If this is not considered desirable a special exception could be made In the law pro vhibiting the use of the secret service force in investigating members of the congress It would be far better to do this than to do what actually was done and strive to prevent or at least to hamper effective action against crim inals by the executive branch of the government Postal Savings Banks I again renew my recommendation for postal savings banks for deposit ing savings with the security of the government behind them The object to encourage thrift and economy in wage earner and person of mod erate means It is believed that in the aggregate vast sums of money would be brought into circulation through the instrumentality of the postal savings banks Postal savings banks are now In operation in practically all th1great civilized countries with the ception of the United States Parcel Post In ray last annual message I com mended the postmaster generals rec ommendation for an extension of the parcel post on the rural routes The establishment of a local parcel post on rural routes would be to the mutual benefit of the farmer and the country storekeeper and it is desirable that the routes serving more than 15T OQOOOO people should be utilized to the fullest practicable extent Education The share that the national govern ment should take in the broad work of education has not received the attention and the care it rightly deserves I earnestly recommend that this un fortunate state of affairs as regards the national educational office be remedied by adequate appropriations Census- I strongly urge that the request of the director of the census in connec tion with the decennial work so soon to be begun be complied with and that the appointments to the census force lawwaIvingas requested by the director of the census The supervisors and enumer ators should not be appointed under the civil service law for the reasons given by the director Public Health The dangers to public health from food adulteration and from many oth er sources such as the menace to the physical mental and moral develop ment of children from child labor should be met and overcome This na tion cannot afford to lag behind in the worldwide battle now being waged by all civilized people with the micro legisconcentration of the proper bureaus into one of the existing departments Statehood I advocate the immediate admission statesdsion of the congress The people of the two territories have made it evi dent by their votes that they will not come in as one state The only alter native is to admit them as two and trust that this will be done without delay Foreign Affairs This nations foreign policy Is base domtas n thzeWrare ward other nations as In private life a honorable man would behave 1his fellowsLatin American Republics The commercial and material prog ress of the twenty Latin American re publics is worthy of the careful attention of the congress No other section of the world has shown a greater pro portionate development of its foreign trade during the last ten years and dnone other has more special claims on the Interest of the United States Panama Canal The work on the Panama canal is be Ing done with a speed efficiency and entire devotion to duty which mate it a model for all work of the kind N befogTe by any nation and no task of the kind has ever been better performed The men on the isthmus- from Colonel Goethals and his fellow ifsrt I employees who are faithfully doing their duty have won their right to the ungrudging respect and gratitude of peoplesOcean Mail Lines I again recommend the extension of the ocean mail act of ilSOi so that isfactory American ocean mail lines t South America Asia the PhitiPPln and Australasia may be established The creation of such steamship lines should be the natural corollary of th voyage of the battle fleet It shoal precede canal the opening of tie Panama The Philippines Real progress toward self govern ment is being made In the Philippine Islands The gathering of a Philippine legislative body and Philippine assem bly marks a process absolutely new in Asia not only as regards Asiatic colonies of European powers but as rF gar s Asiatic possessions of other AsJ atic powers and indeed always ex cepting the strikingand wonderful es ample afforded by the great empire of Japan it opens an entirely new de t 7 i t F 1 I t parture when compared with anything i hich has happened among Asiatic powers which are their obi toasters We have siren the FHipra

could con sider general unfitness to command for any cause in order to secure a farrmore rigid enforcement than at pres fmentaldisabilities But this plan irecoztt mended only if the Congress dons not see fit to provide what in my j ment is far betterthat 1 for UdVtion in promotion and oreUn for age Now that the organized militia the national guard has been incorporated with the army as a partrof the national forces It behooves the g vemment to1 do every reasonable thIng in its pow er to perfect Its efficl ncr A bill Is now pending before the congress creating a number of extra officers in the

King Spruce Until he was over seventy years old Uncle Nate Swan was con ductor on the Bangor and railroad running between the city and Moosehead lake With him rode the woods and driving crews When they forgot themselves arid made a racket on his train he used to cuff them Into submission and no man ever raised his hand against Uncle Nate When the men came out of the woods with their pay most of them realized from bitter experience that the city folks would get all their money away from them in a few days As soon as they would get aboard the train they would begin to strip ten dollar bills off their rolls and hand the money to Uncle Nate to sink for them banking it on call They never forgot nor did he and in all the years there was never a dispute between Conductor Swan rind any of his depositors When they came back on his train they were sure of enough money for their fare and their tobacco at the lake outfitting store They wouldnt have known very well what to do with more Her

introduction of flogging When burglary meant the total ruin of the man who kept his whole for tune in his house the burglar was hanged But in the same period pub lie ridicule served as a punishment for most crimes and the man who sold bad meat was placed in the pillory and his bad meat burned to windward of him the vintner who sold bad wine was forced to drink some bf it and the rest was poured over his head for more serious offenses the criminal had to walk along Cheapside bareheaded dressed only in a shirt and carrying a wax taper escorted by the mayors sergeantsThe was that law and order were maintained far better than when men became brutalized by the horrible floggings of Georgian times Punishments became worse with re ligious persecutions and after the ref ormation tl e pillory with its terrible accompaniment of slit ears whippings etc became popular to say nothing of torturing burning at the Stake and so on At St Thomas hospital one of the sisters for a grave offense con

Paynter has gone to Washington to be present at the op cuing of Qorisrress today He will be sin his second year in the Senate with the view of passing a bill that will take the six cents a pound off
