Testifies as First Witness For the De fence Special to The News IRVINE Ky Dec 22The pros ecution unexpectedly closed in the Hargis case at 11 oclock this morn ing An adjournment was taken to 1 oclock and the defendant Beach Hargis took the stand as the first witness for the defence Hargis was nervous in answering the first few questions but gradually recovered his composure and testified- as indicated by the statement of hisI attorney in operjing the case IRVINE Ky Dec 22The juryI to try Beach Hans charged with the murder of his father Judge James Hargis of Jackson was completed yesterday morning The jury is as follows W TI Blackwell Sampson Curry Travis Daniel William Witt Joel Todd Till man Witt H B Garrett Cash Rice v Daniel W Duggin David Winston Walter Tyree and M A Winkler Sensational Opening Statement r The statement on behalf of the prosecution was perhaps one of the most sensational ever heard in a Kentucky court and while Com monwealths Attorney was relating to the jury the nature of the proof to be offered he was continually interrupted by the attorneys for the defense in an effort to prevent the statements going to the jury Judge Adams overruled the objec tions however and all of the sensa tional facts which the prosecution will endeavor to prove by witnesses were allowed to be given to the jury in advanceWhat State Hopes to Prove It was claimed by the Common wealth that it would be proven that L on the day of the killing Beach Har gis had made statements in the presence of various witnesses that he intended to kill his father and also Dr W1 P Hog his brotherinlaw afid J Jett his cousin and a brother of Curt Jett He said that it would be shown that a week before the killing Beach Hargis attempted to shoot his moth er at the supper table and that it was necessary for his father who entered the room unexpectedly to overpower and disarm him to save the life of the mother He said it would be shown that Judge Hargis was killed in his own storey his own son and with his QWDpistolwhich had been stolen by the patricide the night before Defense Raises Protests- It was when Prosecutor Kash took up the question of Mrs Hargis ac tion in the defense that the defense counselwere on their feet raising a storm of protests He said it would be shown that Mrs Hargis had offered Sam Cock yell 500 and sufficient proof to con t vict Alex and Elbert Hargisof the murder of Jim Cockrell if young Cockrell would have the indictment i against Ed Callahan at Lexington dismissed and the case against the Fit Hargis brothers continued l It would be proved he said that Mrs Hargis desired to use this as a club over Alex and Elbert Hargis to prevent them from taking part in the prosecution of Beach Hargis Judge Bach Scores Dead Man Judge J J C Bach of Jackson l counsel for Beach Hargis began nis opening statement for the de fense While he had for years been the legal adviser and friend of Judge Ji Hargis Judge Bach scored the dead chieftain in a much more bit ter manner than was ever done by Byrd during all of his prosecution of Jim Hargis T Bach Bitter in Denunciation Judge Bach was bitter in his de nttittiation of the dead chieftain and said that he was even more tyranni 11 than Louis XIV and more than t r v rnan of the Dark Ages said it would be shown that Ji Hargis was reared by his Path a V riot as a son but as a murderer I he was

f i 1 1x i t 4ter A N iN WaN TUB WINCHESTERNEWS JUDGE BENTONS FINAL REPLY In HisItoryHas Decided If I have correctly tracked my friend Mr Hays line of campaign he has suggested four reasons why I should not be nominated but none why the place should be given to him Is that the correct view In 1883 I graduated in law from the University of Virginia For 18 years I was engaged in active practice at Winchester and the records of the courts will show that for the last ten years of that time I tried more cases ofall kinds than any other member of the bar I have seen the statement in print and I have heard that Judge T J Scott once said that in his judgment there was no man in the district better qualified than I to be Circuit Judge do not know that he ever made the statement but if he did I consider it the highest compliment ever paid me for he was a fine lawyer a great Judge and a good man and I know there are many strong lawyers in this district If I was qualified then the experience I have since had on the bench makes me better qualified now During my term of office it has fallen to my lot to try and decide some of the most important cases in the judicial history of the State and in none of these important cases have my decisions been reversed In the Berea College Case I laid down the law and fixed the rule so that for all time to come the white and colored children of the State cannot be mixed in any school My decision in that case has been af firmed by both the Court of Appeals of Kentucky and the Supreme Court of the United States The editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer a devoted friend and graduate of Berjja College wrote me the following letter about my opinion in that caseII I have read your decision with great care As I am not a lawyer I cannot be expected to speak of it from a legal standpoint but in the last thirty years it has been part of my work to examine very carefully judicial decisions on many public questions so that I have more familiarly with the subject than many laymen I wish to assure you that I consider your opinion a very able document one which on its ground seems im pregnable If the stand you have taken that the Day act is in pursuance of a proper exercise of the Po lice Power of the State I think you have answered every possible point To my firm course when Curtis Jett was arrested and placed in the Winchester jail for the assassina tion of James B Marcum and in the trial of the MarcumHargis dam age suit some have given me more credit for breaking up the Breathitt county feuds than to all the other officers and all the State militia The MarcumHargis trial lasted for four weeks The record made 2000 Pages Of my conduct of that trial the Court of Appeals in affirming my action said In this entire record we find no substantial error The record throughout manifests the fairness with which the trial was con ducted by both Judge and jury The contempt cases against Felix Feltner and B F French in which the former was given two years in jail and fined 3000 and the latter fined 5000 for spiriting witnesses away from the Marcum trial were also historic cases in which my judgments were affirmed by the Court of Appeals These are only a few of the important cases I have de cided Many persons erroneously believe that a Judge can and does decide cases from dictates of friendship that a true Judge cannot do Ihave been compelled to decide cases in every county of this district against friends and acquaintances in favor of persons I had never seen but my oath of office and the dictates of my conscience required me to do it when my personal preference would have often directed the other way The decision of such cases demands no small degree of moral courage in the Judge and if I think I am known to possess In the case of Sam Hisle in Clark county a fiendish negro had cum mitted a horrible crime on a white woman An infuriated mob Crazed by righteous indignationdem nded Continued on Page 31 t xi r

MAYOR HUGHES HAS FINE GOAT ON HAND Animal Takes Possession of Part of Stable and Makes Himself Disagreeable One night about six months ago three members ofa certain secret society in this city brought a billy goat toa Broadway livery stable man asking him to keep the goat for them a few days and they would re turn and pay him for keeping him and take him away The night the goat was brought to the stable there was a large class in iated into the society of which the goat is a valuable member and plays a prominent part in all initiatory ceremonies and he looked very much like he had been put through a hard nights work Thin hungry tired and wornout he was given a place at the stable and fedand every thing possible done for his comfort that could be done for the comfort of a goat Do Not Call For Him Time drifted by and the owners never called for him at the appointed time and his present keeper has no tified bis former owners and brother lodge men to come and get him but they hiJre given him the laugh each time and said they would get him later on The first few months that he was a guest of the stable he was a very desirable onetame gentle and al ways easy to handle but now that he has grown considerably and gained strength in his new quarters he is getting very undesirable and a speedy removal of him is being planned by his keeper- Doorkeeper at Stable Not forgetting his old duties in the lodge room he assumed the role of doorkeeper Tuesday morning on the second floor of the stable and stationed himself at the top of the sebsend floor and held all the stable employes at bay for nearly an hour until he was controlThegont badly for jsonTfjme but his Qt1f Tuesday ri morning hind eclipsed all his for pier ones He is ail exceptionally goodlotking one fat and plump and of remarkable strength Mayor Has Goat This goat is now and has been for the past six months in the possession of Mayor J A Hughes Mayor Hughes says he has made his last ap peal to the men who brought him there to come and get him and if he is not called for by Saturday he will be put up and Sold at public auction and if no one bids on him he will be given to some small boy to take him away Mayor Hughes said this morning while talking to a News reporter re garding the different antics of the goat that he did not believe the lodge which owns the goat would let him be put up for sale for two reasons one was that he thought that the fra- ternaL principles of the order were too strong to allow one of their brothers to be put up and sold at auction and the other was that the goat knew too much about the in itiatory ceremonies of the order to be turned loose- MARRIAGE LICENSES The following marriage licenses were issued Monday afternoon by the County Clerk Walter Lowrey of Powell county

humble cottage in the mountains of Magoffin county a little child that rImy be dying tonight but her father to keep Iris word with Judge Cochran kissed her goodbye and offered a prayer that she might live until he returned home again There are two other babies ill who are children of Saiyers and his wife is also ill The entire family was down with the measles which Salyers himself caught in nursing his brother who died a few days ago When seen at the jail last night Salyers said I promised Judge Cochran I would come back to jail as scion as I got 1iiy crop harvested It was hard to leave my little babies Xas sick as they were but Iwas maid that the court would not un derstand it if I remained at home so 1 got up out of my sick bed walk ed to Jackson where I bought a tick et and reached Frankfort today at noon to surrender myself to the jailer The offense that Salyers was con victed for was thes whisbky without first getting a government license He did not deny his guilt but instead confessed Judge Coch ran was struck with the prisoners frankness and let him down as light as he could The next day he re ceived a letter from Salyers writ ten from the county jail asking him 4 please to let him go back o the mountains and raise a small crop of corn and potatoes so that his wife and babies would not starve to death during the winter He told Judge Colhran that he would return to jail as soon as the crop was harvested and looking like an honest fellow Judge Cochran took him at his word and let him go home to raise the crop All through the summer Salyers toiled to get his crop on good conditions so that he might leave something at home for his wife and babies to live on while he was in jail here serving out his sentence His brother help ed him and just about the time that all was in readiness for him to leave Magoffin county to come back to the Frankfort jail the entire family was stricken with the measles They waited one on the other but the dis ease proved to be a lingering one and finally the brother died When the funeral was over Salyers made up his mind that he would come to the Frankfort jail at all hazards so he gathered together all the money he could lay his hands on which was only enough to buy his ticket to this city from Jackson and set out on foot over the muddy roads hills and valleys to Jackson where he could catch a train for this city The trip was a most tiresome one andon account of the work of the condition of his family at home when Salyers reached this city he tx Was in a feeble conditionand was compelled to laZy down all day long Friends of humanity in this city have become interested in the case and an effort will be made to get Judge Cochran to suspend the fine so that Salyers can return home to care for his family

haired mail in Clark county who was actually in sympathy with the mbb came to me and vith tears in his eyes thanked me for saving the county from the disgrace of mob violence i In every county in the district for the sake of the men who serve the State as jurors I have adopted a plan by winch each juror is paid in full for his service as soon as it is ended The old rule Was that the jurors must wait months for their pay or be compelled to discount their claims against the State In my political relations I feel that I belong to the Old Guard of De mocracy In Clark county I have seen the Democratic majority less than nothing in 1890 a scant 25 in 1896 and when in 1897 I became officially connected with the countys party organization in the terrific struggle of that year I saw the majority reach 475 and I have seen it continue to grow until 600 is now recognized even by the Republicans to be the normal Democratic major ity of Clark county and it willnot be denied that in bringing about this result I have Borne my share of the work and have never faltered in it On my official record and my party service I appeal for the support of the loyal Democrats of the district t Of the four reasons suggested by Mr Hays why I should not be given the position he urges two in all the counties one in one and the fourth in still another He is an agile an tagonist When he is successfully tripped from one position he alights confidently on another equally un sound and equally untenable His first idea was to create a prej udice against me because I had the moral courage to ask that the salary which he admits is too low should be increased When I showed that that was a dead issue which neither he nor I even with the help of the Legislature could revive he ceased to place emphasis on that point His second idea applied only to Madison county where he attempted to make the personal and political friends of lion James B McCreary believe I had been disloyal to him but when I flashed a telegram from Senator McCreary to me doted De saidcembeI believe you always have voted for me when I was a candidate and I have never questioned your loyalty as a supporter of mine my Mr Hays dropped that notion like ix was afire His third plea is that the primary election was called too soon that I wrote the call and that he was not given time to canvass the district When the district committee met at Richmond December 10th 1908 Mr Hays admitted before the committee that he had had it in mind for a year to run for this office that he knew when and where the committee was to meeet to make the call but that he neither Attended the meeting in person nor by representative as he could have done and that he made no reauest of any sort of the committee It is a known fact that he did not announce his candidacy fQr two fulL weeks after the committee had called the primary My announcement was made in every newspaper in the dis trict in September the committee met the middle of November and a2oppositionmyself I did not even attend the committee meeting but at the request of Mr Sullivan its chairman I fur nished him with the draft of a call but in the letter by which I sent it td him I told him I was not wedded to any particular time and that what ever the committee did would be en tirely satisfactory to me I can not be truthfully charged with any responsibility for the date fixed for the primary That responsibility rests upon the committee but in view of Mr Hays admissions before the committee he is certainly estopped from complaining that he was not ready to run Mr Hays fourth reason applies alone to Powell county where he and his friends are falsely charging that I uttered a slander against that good county and her citizens in a speech at Richmond December 7 1908 I did not make the statement attributed to me by Mr Hays and his friends or any statement akin to it Mr Hays asked me publicly to tell the people of Madison county about Powell and whether or not I would get any votes thereand this is what I said When I first went to Powell county as JudgeiwIftskey was til n t ylsold at wrongSplices in the county some at licensed saloons some vat jlind tigers some at moonshine stills ytwelvecounty and frequently its waters have been stained with human blood In my opinion this loss of human life was in each instance traceable to whiskey In two local option elec tionsthe people ofThat county have voted to banish whiskey from the county and Ias Judge have done what I could to secure the enforce ment of the local option law and that course may bring down on toe the opposition of some men in the county but I believe the good people of Powell county will show their ap prE rlatioIi of the firm stand I have taken for the enforcement of the law and givemea handsome majority That is all I said about Powell county and it is just what I have said time and again to the grand juries and other officers of Powell county when I have appealed to them to aid me in securing the enforcement of IWithare me with malice towards none with charity for all and with absolute assurance ofan overwhelming vie tory I make this final submission of my claims J M BENTON December 221908 SAVE THE POTATO WATER Much of Most Nutritious Part of Vege table Is in It The water in which pared potatoes have been boiled should never be wasted as it contains much of the most nutritious part of the potato but it is usually thrown away except when used for bread To make a delicious wholesome gravy when milk is scarce lift out the potatoes carefully with a fork setting the dish in the oven to dry the potatoes and fandsoup mash a few potatoes ancl put them back into the water in which they were boiled season with onion celery salt or the water in which celery tops have been boiled and add cream or milk and butter This is one of the most palatable and economical soups that can be made If the soup is not wanted immediately the potato water can be saved for the next meal or until the next day or the soup can be made at once as it is equally good warmed up for a lateral meal Baked Oysters For every 26 oysters take two tablespoonfuls

Couch Cushion A method of work which produces the same bold effects as those of the stencil but with greater richness and effectiveness is that of applique The use of one fabric upon another with outlines and small details of design brought out by embroidery is peculiar ly pleasing in its results and a method which has heretofore not been thor oughly appreciated by art needle workers The principal object in these slmpje designs is the obtaining pf good v rt t 4- t mcOJ1orped with too much detail Is well suited to this purpose and very easily done All that is ne isI is to cut out the

share of enjoyment out of Christmas They nearly always prepare a big feast and invite some prominent men to dine with them and help them to celebrate the occasion This picture shows a group of New York newsies preparing the annual Christmas banquet Sane Their Important Bearing on Politics Business By DR NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER President of Columbia University The most Urgent matters for the American people to settle today and to settle right relate to the fUnda- mental principles which shall control their political policies as these policies are related to business Three and only three paths are open to us First we may if we choose adopt the policy of laissez faire or let alone which has been powerfully advocated by political philosophers of high authority Second we may take the opposite course and endeavor to exercise collective ownership and controlof the agencies and instrumentalities 2t productive industry and of transportation which is socialism Third we may while preserving to ourselves the extraordinary moral economic and political benefits which flow from individual initiative and the adequate reward of individual endeavor lay the collective handso heavily upon business activity that the individuals selfinterest shall if it be possible be held always subordinate to the common good To many like myself it is sufficient to state these three alternatives to recommend the one last named This is suchmeasure of individual and corporate oversight andr ntro1 as changing circumstances may require in order to prevent self interest in its excess from damaging the common good without checking its beneficent activities i The questions involved in entering on this course of actibjcuarein part ethical in part economic and in part political When we pass from controlling principles to concrete matters we find ourselves face do face with the fact that inorder fo settle wisely the relations of our presentday politics to business we must deal with three chief problems that of banking and currency that of the trans portation systems of the country and that of the large corPorations which carry on the manufacture and sale of products r No one of these three great questions is properly a matter for parts san exploitation or for party difference Each of the three should be set tled as commonsense business men would settle anyquestion after a close study of all the facts and with the public interest always uppermost as a controlling motive in pointing to any given solution or settlement The American people cannot solve these questions of banking and currency of the railways and of thegre Industrial corporations either with rhetoric or in passion They can onlysplve them by intelligent eolicitouls stud andreflectioii V l T t i r t J 1 j tA ot- j f

otSe Lost I Care of Young Stock Street trees and their condition are largely an index for they have much to do with the character and growth addImuch to the comfort and pleasure of the inhabitants the evident determination to be comfortable bespeaks the character of the people Not only do street trees concern the present but assures one of still better results in the future If one but takes the trouble to look the matter up it will be found tha a majority of the larger cities east of the Mississippi started as well planted well cared for villages Often this marvelous growth may be traced back to where some enthusiastic iudividua or small band of workers determined that their village should be made beau tiful and attractive to home seekers Many can u they would start this work with a swing and gait that could not fail to succeed thereby adding to the property values of both self and neighbors Why stand ye idly byi Do not overplant streets Allow each tree sufficient room so that when fully a grown its individual beauty will npt be lost Trees so planted always make the more satisfactory growth Their root systems start forth equally distributed in all directions If placed toj close to each other when of large size the space Between trees is soon ej ihausted of plant food and complete fled with roots then the feeders matt a frantic rush at right angles to the row seeking plant food wherever most easily obtained In country districts this often results in these starving trees sending their roots into orchards comparatively near the surface and nearly destroying the nearest row of fruit trees A most thorough preparation of a deep soil bed for the young trees wil start a system down deep in the natural reservoir of plant food and the feeders will not then push up near the surface to forage because of short rations at home Roots reaching into and interfering with orchard or garden may In the case Of old trees be cut by digging a trench parallel with the row and cutting them olIf the tops are t also properly pruned the tree will not need such an extensive root system to support sit If the street tree is given an occasional feed and cultivation as la always the case with orchard trees It might be Induced to board at home for all time The need of ample room If we are to secure the best tree de velopment is strikingly shown in the case of the common blue gum a forest tree When grown in commercial plant tations or shelter belts it sends up a tall straight shaft with scarcely a branch of any note When standing f alone it develops a handsome umbra geous form and often makes an ideal shade tree One of the most serious drawbacks to street tree planting is the inability to obtain capable men to do the work In spite of the fact that men on every band may be found who claim to be trained gardeners very few are at all competent to plant trees or care for- them after planting Even the best gardeners are seldom trained in those lines which have to dealwith street trees and a well trained orchardist is to be preferred for the planting while special training Is required for intelligent pruning If more good men were available our larger cities and towns might be encouraged to appoint tree wardens or city foresters As It is the authorities feel somewhat helpless and the matter drifts along the property owner planting and the wind or wire stringer pruning until no respectable trees are left Some day the city or streetiment is made to begin all over again reclaiming such trees as are still of value rooting out and replacing old marred stumps and only by a general upheaval Is it possible to place the mu nicipality on the road toward the city goalf trees growing vigor ously need attention in a variety of ways Abnormal and useless

CHAIRS BY SIGHT Few Folks Ever Think to Try Them by Sitting In Them I went with some folks the other day the man said to buy l couple of chairs We went to a furniture store and looked over whet they had to offer There were just ordinary chairs for a bedroom so that it wasnt a very momentous purchase The folks I was with looked at the cloth on the chairs and asked questions about the wood and how the chairs would wear Then they bought the chairs and or dered them sent home What struck me as peculiar about the transaction was that never once did either of the two persons with whom was think of

BRAINY SNOB Women In the Front Rank In Thip Character- A good lady who goes to the art class says Samuel McChord Growers in the Atlantic Monthly is able to talk of Botticelli But she has no right to look down upon her husband as an inferior creature because he supposes that Botticelli is one of a certain kind of pickles He may have some things which she has not and they may be fully as important Trpe enough they may be fully as Important but it would be hard to get our lady who goes to the art class to realize this fact This Is because of no conscious perversity on her part but rather because her judgments are Irretrievably based on a certain little round of standards of her own mak ingWhen she meets a person for the first time she performs much the same operation that a merchant does when he checks off a bill of goods She looks him over and decides wheth er he tallies up with the Items on the bijl of her perfectly satisfactory and sufficiently cultured person and If he does all well and good If not If he pronounces basrelief with an s or thinks that Puccini Is the name of a new cheesescratch goes the pencil and the newcomer Is marked hopeless Hopeless he may be as tar as grand opera and mural decorations are concerned These seem important to the good lady of the art class but they are not the only Important things In the world and this is just where her judgment is a bit warped By dint of constant attendance upon the art class and much cramming up on Italian opera and French drama she has become fairly well informed upon these matters but that does not war rant her for Indulging In a sort of in tellectual snobbishness which is as detestable as the stuckupishness of the little girl whose father has just mortgaged his house to buy an auto mobileVIn so doing she

scratched the paraffin is first rubbed oil and the match lights in the usual way Matches treated as above would be very useful on camping or canoeing trips as they do not absorb moisture Since more
