Ky Jan 4The dis turbing forces having left town Jack son has assumed a quiet aspect Many of the reports published last week did not emanate from the local representatives of the press and were highly colored The real fact are as gathered from statements of cit izens residing in the neighborhood of Crockettsville about as follows Several weeks ago Green Callahan who runs a grocery on Longs Creek hauled two barrels of whisky t6 his place of business presumably for the purpose of sale His place of busi ness4s in local option territory A day or two later Govan Smith and one of his Brothers took awagon lo Green Callahans place of bus mess and forcibly as Green declares loaded two barrels of whisky into their wagnaud drove away Reported to Ed Callahan Green reported this to his brother former Sheriff Ed Callahan and on his advice went to Jackson and swore out warrants against the Smiths charging them with robbery Several days later the Smiths ac companied by half a dozen or more other meli rode to the residence of Ed Callahan about dark and began shooting into his house Callahan returned the fire shooting a young man by the name of Sebas dan through the shoulder and killing a mule ridtlen by a young Dpaton tater the Smiths und Deatons swore out warrants against Ed Cal lahan and the rest of his supporters charging them wjth malicious shoot ing They were arrested on these warrants by Sheriff Breck Crawford last Wednesday and brought to Jack n Come to Aid Pros eutiiSImmediately after their arrival the De tons Smiths and their suppOrters appeared in town armed and coming with the announced purpose of aiding in the prosecution of Callahan Many of the DeatonSmithretain ers were pronounced in their deter mination to kill Callahan some of them declaring on the streets that he would not be permitted to get out of town alive The fact of these threats was communicated to the former Sheriff The hotels refused to entertain Cal lahan who became alarmed and took shelter in the Hargis store where he had his meals sent to him The other faction walked the streets singly and collectively many of them uttering threats against tljeir longtime enemy whom they held responsible for the murder of their kinsman Squire James Deaton for whose murder Callahan was tried and acquitted five or six years ago The telephones were kept busy and by Thursday noon the DeatonSmith clan had mobilized a force of about seventyfive armed men who took quarters at the residence of Bob Davidson in the upper portion of town known as the PhilippinesS The message over the phone call ing for recruits carried with the re quest that every man bring his gunsThursday afternoon Fletcher Deat on informed William Day a brother of Mrs Hargis who was in charge of his sisters store thatJf Callahan re mained in the store over night it would be blown up with dynamite Day at once demanded of Calla han that he vacate but he replied that he was afraid to go out of the door and declined to leave the build ing That night twenty of Callahans friends from the country rode into town and joined the Callahan forces Judge Taulbee Wires Governor Judge Taulbee wired the Governor for tloops and none having arrived the Judge did not deem it wise to at tempt to hold a trial The situation became intense and many of the good citizens were alarmed at the prospect of a clash at arms

lResolutionSays He Did Not Hit at House- S5b Washington Tan 41n a special message to tIm house of representa tives today President Roosevelt says To the House of Representatives I have received the resolution of the house of representatives 2f Dec IT 1908 running as follows Whereas There was contained In the sundry civil appropriation bill which passed congress at its last session and be came a law a provision in reference to the employment of the secret service In the treasury department and Whereas In the last annual message of the president of the United States to the two houses of congress it was stated in reference to that provision It is not too much to say that this amendment has been of benefit only and could be of benefit only to the crlmitial classes and it was further stated The chief argument in favor of the provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to be Investigated by secret service inen and it Avas further stated But if this is not considered desirable a special exce- ptIoncoulde made in the law prohibitingt- 1ltl use of the secret service force In vestlgajting members of congress it would tar belter to do thIs than to do what actually was strive to prevent or at least to iamcer effective action against criminals byThe executive branch of the government and Whereas The plain meaning of the above words is that the majority of the congressmen were In fear of being inves tigated by secret service men and that congress as a whole was actuated by that motive In enacting the provision in quesI tion ndSWhereas Your committee appointed to consider these statements of the presi dent and to report to the house cannot find In the hearings before commHJees nor Iri the records of the house or sen ate any justification of this Impeach men ot the honor and Integrity of the Congress and Whereas Your committee would prefer irfbTiJer to make an Intelligent and corn prehensive report just to the president as well 3 toNthe congress to have all the information Which the president may have tocommunlcafe now therefore Be fit resolved That the president be requested to transmit to the house any evidence upon which he based hlsvstate mehfe that the chief argument In favor Of th pfQvlslon was that the congressmen ilA not tllcmsrelveSwtsh to clnvestJga ed by service menu and also toTtraKgniJt to the house any evfc dence connecting any member of the house of representatives of the Sixtieth congress with corrupt action In his official capacity avid to inform the house whether he hits instituted proceedings for the punishment of any such individual by the courts or has reported any such alleged delinquencies to the house of rep resentativesI Understand Resolution I am wholly at a losa to understand the concluding portion of the resolution I have made no charges of cor ruption against congress nor against any member of the present house If I had proof of such corruption affect ing any member of the house in any matter to which the federal gov ernment has jurisdiction action would at once be brought as was done In the cases of Senators Mitchell and Burton and Representatives Williamson Herr mann and Driggs at different times since I have been president This would simply be doing my duty in the execution and enforcement of the laws without respect to persons But I do not regard it as within the province or the duties of the president to report to the house alleged delinquencies of members or the supposed corrupt action of a member in his official ca pacity The membership of the house Is by the constitution placed within the power of the house alone In the prosecution of criminals and the enforcement of the laws the president must resort to the courts of the United StatesPortion of Message Quoted In the third and fourth clauses of the preamble it i stated that tie meaning of my words is that the majority of the congressmen are in fear of being Investigated by secret service men aC1tuatedis an impeachment of the honor and Integrity of the congress TheseN state ments are not I think in accordance with the facts The portion of my message referred to runs as follows Last year an amendment was incorporated in the measure providing for the secret service which provided that there should be no detail from the secret ice and no transfer therefrom It servI too much to say that this been of benefit only and could be of bene fit only to tho criminal classes If delib erately Introduced for the purpose of di minishing the effectiveness of war against crime It could not have been better devised to this end It forbade the prac tices that had been followed to a greater or less extent by the executive heads of various departments for twenty years To these practices we owe the securing of the evidence which enabled us to drive great lotteries out of business and secure a quarter of a million of dollars in fines from their promoters These practices have enabled us to discover some of the most outrageous frauds In connection with the theft of government land and government timber by great corporations and by Individuals These practices have anabled us to get some of the evidence in dispensable order to secure the conviction of the wealthiest and most formidable criminals with whom the government has to deal both those pperatlngr in viola Conu4ongefour I t l a

immediately a ship could be chartered by telegraph at Marseilles or Genoa and loaded with blankets clothing linen preserved meats condensed milk medical supplies and similar useful materials One or

the earthquake disaster the American National Red Cross cabled 100000 with the suggestion that it coiild be usbd by the Italian Red Cross society to fit out a ship with provisions and medical supplies This amount is in addition to the 100000 and the 70000 previously sent by the American Red Cross By sending the money instead of un dertaking to provide for the shipment of supplies the American Red Cross adopted what it regards as the best method of meeting the emergencies that face the Italian Red Cross They believe that the Italian society would be able to make these arrangements more promptly than any one else In order that the American Red Cross society might have a personal representative on the scene of the earthquake Vice Consul Bayard Cutting at Milan is now in the earthquake region

Navajo Canyon In preColumbian days probably even before the period of the Aztec and Toltec peoples and at a time when a considerable portion of the southwestern part of this country now embraced within Colorado Utah and New Mexico was densely populated by a race well advanced in many of the crude arts and industries con stant warfare was carried on between 0 V ift 1J n factions rival tribes or different races J as is evidenced by the defensive posi tions picked out by the more peace able inhabitants for their dwellings- In nearly every one of the ancient communal buildings can be found tow ers and lookouts with small windows ort loopholes commanding all ap proaches Usually the towers are a part of the main building but occa sionally they are detached and stand off at some distance and are built sufficiently high to afford a view of the country on all sides One of these remarkable structures has been found in the Navajo canyon which is included within the Mesa Verde National park in southwestern Colorado The tower still stands on top of a sandstone cone about 30 feet high and is perfectly cylindrical By the aid of steps worn in the stone it is possible to climb to the tower and even to walk around it The walls are 24 inches thick and although their original height is not known those now in place are often nine feet high This tower arising from the bottom of theca ron to an elevation above the surrounding rim commanded a view of the adjacent mesa and was un doubtedly the viewpoint from which warnings of an approaching enemy could be sent out to the cliff

admittance so he went to a neighbors house where he boarded and lodged but this time was spent sitting In front of the prison door His faithful watch at length won over the jailer who al lowed him to

the antitrust law and others The amendment in question was of benefit to no one excepting to these criminals and If seriously hampers the government In the detection of crime and the securing of justice Moreover It not only affects departments outside of the treasury but it tends to hamper the secretary of the treasury himself In the effort to utilize the employees of his department so as to best meet the requirements of the public service It forbids him from preventing fraudS upon the customs service from in vestigating irregularities in branch mints and assay offices and has seriously crip pled him It prevents the promotion of employees in the secret service and this further discourages good effort In its present form the restriction operates only to the advantage of the criminal of the wrongdoer The chief argument in favor of the provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to be Investigated by secret service men Very little of such investigation has been dohe in the past But it is true that the work of the secret service agents was partly responsible for the Indictment and conviction of a sen afbr and a congressman for land frauds In Oregon I do not believe that it is In the public Interest to protect crim inals in any branch of the public service and exactly as we have again and again during the past seven years prosecuted and convicted such criminals who were In the executive branch of the govern ment so In my belief we should be given ample means tg prosecute them If found In the legislative branch But if this is not considered desirable a special excep prohibitIngcongressItdo what actually was done and strive to prevent or at least to hamper effective action against criminals by the executive branch of the government Asks Careful Reading of Message A careful reading of this message will show that I said nothing to war rant the statement that the majority of the congressmen were in fear of being investigated by the secret serv ice men or that congress as a whole was actuated by that motive I did not make any such statement In this message Moreover I have never made any such statement about congress as a whole nor with a few inevitable ex ceptions about the members of con gress in any message or article or speech On the contrary I have al vigorouslycriminate attack upon congress and indiscriminate condemnation of all congressmen wise and unwise fit and unfit good and bad alike No one real izes more than I the importance of cooperation between the executive and congress and no one holds the au thority and dignity of the congress of the United States in higher respect than I do I have not the slightest sympathy with the practice of judging men for good or for ill not on their several merits but in a mass as members of one particular body or one caste To put together all men holding or who have held a particular office whether it be the office of president or judge or senator or member of the house of representatives and to class them all without regard to their in djlvldual differences as good or bad seems to me utterly indefensible and it Is equally indefensible whether the good are confounded with the bad in a heated and unwarranted champion ship of all or in a heated and unwar ranted assault upon all I would nei ther attack nor defend all executive officers In a mass whether presidents governors cabinet officers or afficlala of lower rank nor would I attack or defend all legislative officers In a mass The safety of free government rests very largely in the ability of the plain everyday citizen to discriminate be tween those public servants who serve him well and those public servants who serve him ill He cannot thus discriminate if he Is persuaded to pass judgment upon a man not with refer ence to whether he Is a fit or unfit public servant but with reference to whether he Is an executive or legisla tive officer whether he belongs to one branch or the other of the government Says Message Is Misunderstood This allegation in the resolution therefore must certainly be due to an entire failure to understand my mes sageThe resolution continues That the president be requested to transmit to the house any evidence upon which he based his statements that the chief argument in favor of the provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to be investigated by secret service men This statement which was an attack upon no one still less upon the congress Is sustained by the facts If you will turn to the Congressional Record for May 1 last pages 5553 to 55GO inclusive you will find the debate on this subject Mr Tawney of Minnesota Mr Smith of Iowa Mr Sherley of Kentucky and Mr Fitzgerald of New York appear in this debate as the special champions of the pro vision referred to Messrs Parsons Bennet and Drlscoll were the leaders of those who opposedthe adoption of the amendment and upheld the right of the government to use the most effi cient means possible in order to detect criminals and to prevent and pun ish crime The amendment was car ried in the committee of the whole where no votes of the individual members are recorddso I am unable to discriminate by mentioning the mem bers who voted for and the members who voted against the provision but Its passage the journal records was greeted with applause I am well aware however that in any case of this kind many members who have no particular knowledge of the point at issue are content simply to followthe lead of the committee which had considered the matter and I have no doubt that many members of the house simply followed the lead of Messrs Tawney and Smith without having had the opportunity to know very much as questI would not ordinarily attempt Inthis way to discriminate between members f the house tat as objection has bees taken tommy language in which I slur y r ply spoke of the action of the house as a Whole and as Apparently there Is II desire that I should thus discrim inate I will state that F think the res- ponsibilIty rest Jtl on the committee on appropriations Under the leadlof the members whom I have mentioned Replies to Request For Evidence Now as to the request of the con gress that I give the evidence for my statement that the chief argument in favor of the provision was that the congressmen did pot themselves wish to be Investigated bj Secret service menThe part of the Congressional Record to which I have referred above en tirely supports this statement Two distinct lines of argument were fbl lowed in the debate One concerned the question whether the law war ranted the employment of the secret service in departments other than the treasury and this did not touch the merits of the service in the least The other line of argument went to the merits of the service whether lawfully or unlawfully employed and here the chief if not the only argument used was that the service should be cut down and restricted because its mem bers had shadowed or Investigated members of congress and other officers of the government If we examine the debate in detail ijt appears that most theIple statement that the committee hel that there had been a violation of law by the use of the secret service for other purposes than suppressil counterfeiting and one or two other matters which can be disregarded and that such language was now to be used as would effectually prevent r II such violation of law hereafter Mr Tawney for instance says It was for the purpose of stopping the use of byIsgysow was only way in which any limitation could be put upon the activities of the xseci service Mr Fitzgerald followed iu the same vein and by far the largest part of the argument against the em ployment of the secret service was con fined to thestatement that It was in violation of law Of course such a statement is not In any way an argu ment in favor of the justice of the provision It is not an argument for the provision at all It is simply a statement o what the gentlemen making it conceive to have been the law There was both by implication and direct statement the assertion that it was the law and ought to be the law that the secet service should only be used to suppress counterfeiting and that the law should be made more rigid than ever in this respect No Restrictions on Service Incidentally I may say that Jn my judgment there Is ample legal authority for the statement that thisappro priation law to which reference was made Imposes no restrictions whatever upon the use of the secret service men but relates solely to the expenditure of the money appropriated Mr Tawney in the debate stated that he had in his possession ua letter from the secretary of the treasury received a few days ago in which the secretary of the treasury himself admits that the pro- vIsions under which the appropriation has been made have been violated year after year for a number of years in his own department I append herewith as Appendix A the letter referred to Appendix A Is a letter from Secretary of the Treasury Cortelyou to the chairman of the committee on appropriations of the house of representatives dated April 2D 1908 protest Ing against the proposed law abridging the right of the secretary of the treasury to detail secret service men to work In other divisions of his department Such abridgement he declared would be distinctly to the ad vantage of violators of criminal stat utes of the United States It makes no such admission as that which Mr Tawney alleges It contains on the contrary as you will see by reading It an emphatic protest against any such abridgement of the rights delegated to the secretary of the treasury by existing law and concludes by assert- Ing that he is quite within his rights in thus employing the service of these agents and that the proposed modifi cation which Mr Tawney succeeded in carrying through would be distinctly to the advantage of violators of crimi nal statutes of the United States I call attention to the fact that In this letter of Secretary Cortelyou to Mr Tawney as in my letter to the speaker quoted below the explicit statement Is made that the proposed change will be for the benefit of the criminals a statement which I simply reiterated in publIc form in my message to the con gress this year and which Is also con tained In effect In the report of the secretary of the treasury to the con gress Private Conduct of Members A careful reading of the Congresslon al Record will also show that practically the only arguments advanced In fa Vor of the limitation proposed by Mr Tawneys committee beyond what may be supposed to be contained by implication in certain sentences as to abuses which were not specified were those contained in the repeated statements of Mr Sherley Mr Sher ley stated that there had been pronounced abuses growing out of the use of the secret service for purposes other than those intendedputting his statement In the form of a question and In the same form further stated that the private conduct of mem bers of congress senators and others ought not to be investigated by the secret service and that they should n Investigate a member of con gress who had been accused of con duct unbecoming a gentleman and a member of congreSs Jn addition to I these assertions couched as questions he made one positive declaration that this secret service at one time was used for the purpose of looking into the personal conduct of a member of congress This argument of Mr Sher the only real argument as fb the merits of the question made on behalf of the committee on appropriations will be found in columns 1 and 2 of page oSijG and column 1 of page 5557 of the Congressional Record In col umn 1 of page 5550 Mr Sherley refers to the impropriety of permitting the secret service men to investigate men in the departments officers of the army and navy and senators and con gressmen In column 2 he refers to officers of the navy and members of congress In column 1 page 5557 he refers only to members of congress His speech puts most weight on the investigation of members of congress Newspaper Article Reproduced What appears in the record is filled out and explained bun article which appeared in the Chicago Inter Ocean of Jan o 1904 under a Washington headline and which marked the begin ning of this agitation against the se cret service It was a special article of about 3000 words written as I was then informed and now understand by Mr L W Busboy at that time private secretary to the speaker of the house I inclose a copy of certain extracts from the article marked Appendix B Appendix B consists of an article from the Chicago Inter Ocean of Jan 3 1904 In this John E Wilkie chief of the secret service of the treasury department is described as ambitious of becoming the Fouche of thfe United States in imitation of Fondle chief of the secret police of Napoleon I The article declares that the secret service bureau exists without warrant of con gressional action and that congress has buIreauranted attack on the secret service division of the treasury department and its chief The Opening paragraph Includes for instance statements like the following He the chief of the division and his men are desirous of doing the secret de tective work for the whole government and are not particular about drawing the line between the lawmakers and the lawbreakers They are ready to shadow the former as well as the latter Then after saying that congress will insist that the men shall only be used to stop counterfeiting the article goes 00 Congress does not Intend to have a Fouche or any other kind of minister of police to be used by the executive departments against the legislative branch of the government It has been so used and it is suspected that it has been so used recently The legislative branch of the government will not toler ate the meddling of detectives whether they represent the president cabinet offi cers or only themselves Con gressmen resented the secret interference of the secret service men who for weeks shadowed some of the most respected members of the house and senate When It was discovered that the secret service men were atlthebeing abolished and the appropriation for the suppression of counterfeiting cut off At another time the chief of the secret service had his men shadow congressmen with a view to Involving them In scandals that would enable bureau to dictate to them as the price otI silence The secret service men have shown an inclination again to knowIngthemjoke Several of the departments have asked congress for secret funds for In vestigation and the treasury department wants the limitation removed from the appropriation for suppressing counter feiting This shows a tendency toward Foucheism and a secret watch on other officials than themselves At the time of this publication the work of the secret service which was thus assailed included especially the investigation of great laud frauds in the west and the securing of evidence to help the department of justice In the beef trust investigations at Chicago which resulted in successful prosecu tionsIn view of Mr Busbeys position I have accepted the above quoted state ments as fairly expressing the real meaning and animus ot the attacks made In general terms on the use of the secret service for the punishment of criminals Furthermore in the per formance of my duty to endeavor to find the feelings of congressmen on freIme for the hostility of congress to the secret service both by those who did and by those who did not share this hostility were almost Invariably the same as those set forth In Mr Busbeys article I may add by the way that these allegations as to the secret serv ice are wholly without foundation in fact Real Issue Named But all of this is of insignificant Im portance compared with the main the real Issue This issue lsvsimply Does congress desire that the government shall have at Its disposal the most efficient instrument for the detection of criminals and the prevention and punishment of crime or does it not The action of the house last May was emphatically an action against the in terest of Justice and against the inter est of law abiding people and In Its effect of benefit only to lawbreakers I am not now dealing with motives Whatever may have been the motive that Induced the action of which I speak this was beyond all question the effect of that action Is the house now willing to remedy the wrong For a long time I contented myself with endeavoring to persuade the house not to permit the wrong speaking informally on the subject with those members who I believed knew anything of the matter and commu nicating officially only in the ordinary channels as through the secretary of the treasury In a letter to the speaker on April 90 protesting against the cut t tint down of the appropriation vitally necessary if the interstate commerce commission was to carry into effect the twentieth section of the Hepburn law I added The provision about the employment of the secret service men will work very great damage to the government in its endeavor to prevent and punish crime There is no more foolish outcry than this against spies Only criminals need fear our detectives I inclose copy of the whole letter marked Appendix C The postscript is blurred in ray copy book and two or three of the words cannot be deciphered Appendix C is a letter dated April 30 190S from President Roosevelt to Speaker Can non protesting against the cutting down in the sundry civil bill of the appropriation for secret service work The only people benefited would be the very worst of the big railroad men whose misdeeds we are trying to pre vent or correct were the words of the president These methods proved un availing to prevent the wrong Messrs Tawney and Smith and their fellow members on the appropriations com mittee paid no heed to the protests and as the obnoxious provision was incorporated in the sundry civil bill it was impossible for me to consider or discuss it on its merits as 1 should have done had It been in a separate bill Therefore I have now taiu the only method available that of discuss ing it in my message to congress and as all efforts to secure what I regard as proper treatment of the subject without recourse to plain speaking had failed I have spoken plainly and di rectly and have set forth the facts in explicit terms Here the president gives instances in which the secret service men have been Instrumental in securing convic tions of offenses against federal laws citing especially the land fraud cases In connection with the Nebraska prosecution the government has by decree secured the return to the govern grazi2000 acres of mineral land and suits are now pending Involving 150QQO acres more Dishonestfcases were undertaken in consequence of Mr Hitchcock the then secretary of the interior becoming convinced that there were extensive frauds com mitted in his department and the ramifications of the frauds were so farreaching that he was afraid to trust his own officials to deal in thoroughgoing fashion with them One of the secret service men accordingly resign ed and was appointed In the interior department to carry on this work The first thing he discovered was that the special agents division or corps of de teethes of the land office of the Inte nor department was largely under the control of the land thieves and in cop sequence the investigations above referred to had to be niade by secret servicemen If the present law for which Messrs Tawney Smith and the other gentle responsibleaction would have been Impossible and most of the criminals would unques tionably have escaped No more strik ing Instance can be imagined of the desirability of having a central corps of skilled investigating agents who can at any time be assigned if necessary in large numbers to investigate some violation of the federal statutes in no matter what branch of the public serv ice In this particular case most of the men investigated who wr public servants were in the executive branch of the government But in Oregon where an enormous acreage of fraudu lently alienated public land was recovered for the government a United States senator Mr Mitchell and a member of the lower house Mr Wil liamson were convicted on evidence obtained by men transferred from the secret service and another member of congress was indicted Stopped Naturalization Frauds From 1901 to 1904 a successful inves tigation of naturalization affairs was made by the secret service with the result of obtaining hundreds of convic tions of conspirators who were convict ed of selling fraudulent papers of naturalization Subsequently congress passed a very wise law providing a special service and appropriation for the prevention of naturalization frauds but unfortunately at the same time that the action against the secret serv ice was taken congress also cut down the appropriation fOf this special serv ice with the result of crippling the effort to stop frauds In naturalization The fugitives Greene and Gaynor Implicated in a peculiarly big government contract fraud were located and ar rested In Canada by the secret service and thanks to this they have since gone to prison for then crimes The secret service was used to assist in the investigation of crimes under the peonage laws and owing partly thereto numerous convictions were secured and the objectionable practice was practically stamped out at least in many districts The most extensive smuggling of silk and opium in the history of the treasury department was investigated by agents of the secret service in New York and Seattle and a successful prosecution of the of fenders undertaken Assistance of the utmost value was rendered to the department of justice In the beef trust Investigation at Chicago prosecutions were followed up and fines inflicted The cotton leak scandal In the agri cultural department was investigated and the responsible parties located What was done In connection with lottery investigations Is disclosed In a letter just sent to me by the United States attorney for Delaware running as follows NajUowa z the work of the sfecret This excellent work was accon 1fMr Wilkie and his subordinates I thought it might be timely to recall this prosecution Lottery Cases and Others Three hundred thousand dollars in fines were collected by the govern ment in the lottery cases Again the Ink contract fraud in the bureau of engraving and printing a bureau of the treasury department was investi gated by the secret service and the guilty parties brought to justice Mr Tawney stated in the debate that this was not investigated by the secret serv ice but by a clerk down there conveying the impression that the clerk was not in the secret service As a matter of fact he was in the secret service His name was Moran and he was promoted to assistant chief for the excellence of his work in this case The total expense for the office and field force of the secret service last year was 135000 and by this one investigation they saved to the government over 100000 a year Thanks to the restriction imposed by congress it is now very difficult for the secretary of the treasury to use the secret service freely even in his own departmentfor instance to use them to repeat what they did so Ad mirably in the case of this ink con tract The government is further crippled by the law forbiddinglllt to em ploy detective agencies Of course the government can detect the most dan gerous crimes and punish the worst criminals only by the use either of the detectivesTobid it to resort to the other can inure to the benefit of none save the crimi nalsSecretary Cortelyou Sustained The facts above given show beyond possibility of doubt that what the sec retary of the treasury and I had both written prior to the enactment of the obnoxious provision and what I have since written in my message to the congress state the facts exactly as they are The obnoxious provision Is of benefit only to the criminal class and can be of benefit only to the crim inal class If it had been embodied In the law at the time when I became president all the prosecutions above mentioned and many others of the same general type would either not have been undertaken or would have been undcriken with the government at a greit disadvantage and many and probably most of the chief offenders would have gone scot free instead of being punished for their crimes Such a body as the secret service such a body of trained investigating agents occupying a permanent posi tion in the government service and separate from local investigating forces in different departments Is an absolute necessity if the best work is to be done against criminals It is by far the most efficient instrument possible to use against crime Of course more efficient an instrument is theJmore dangerous it is if misused To the argument that a force like this can be misused it Is only necessary to answer that the condition of its usefulness if handled properly is that it shall be so efficient as to be dangerous if handled improperly Any instance of abuse by the secret service or other investigating force in the departments should be unsparingly punished and congress should hold itself ready at any and all times to investigate the executive departments wheneverHhere is reason to believe that any such in stance of abuse has occurred I wish to emphasize my more than cordial ac quiescence in the view that this is not only the right of congress but em phatically Its duty To use the secret service in the investigation of purely private or political matters would be a gross abuse But there has been no single instance of such abuse during my term as president The Presidents Appeal In conclusion I most earnestly ask in the name of good government and decent administration in the name of honesty and for the purpose of bring ing to justice violators of the federal laws wherever they may be found whether in public or private life that the action taken by the house last year be reversed When this action was taken the senate committee under the lead of the late Senator Alllson hay ing before It a strongly worded protest w Appendix D from Secretary Cortel you like that he had sent to Mr Taw ney Accepted the secretarys Vlews and the senate passed the bill In the shape presented by Senator Allison In the conference however the house conferees insisted on the retentiom of the provision theyhad inserted and the senate yielded Appendix D con sists of a letter from Secretary Cortel you to the late William B Allison chairman of the senate committee on appropriations dated May 5 1908 In It the secretary protests vigorously against the amendment to the sundry civil bill prohibiting the payment of any person detailed or transferred from the secret service division He gives reasons for such details and in an appendix cites instances in which the secret service men hare been detailed effectively in caseS outside the treasury department The chief of the secret service IM paid a salary utterly inadequate to the importance of his functions and to the admirably way in which be has performed them I earnestly urge that It be increased to 6000 per annum I also urge that the secret service be placed where it properly theldepartment 11qUested

pilot house of thee pursuing tug and shook its fists at us c The huge bulk the wolfface just distinguishable distorted dark with rage and passion stopped the blood and I felt a faintness as of dropping from a height Doddridge Knapp I cried Mrs Knapp looked at me in alarm and grasped the rail No no she exclaimed A thou sand times no That is Elijah Lane 1g zed at her in wonder Not Dodd ridge Knapp Had my eyes played me false Do you not understand 7 she saidt In a low intense tone He is Elijah JLanei the father of the boy An evil wicked manmadtruly mad He vybuldkill the boy fae killed the mother of the boy I know but it is not a case for proof not a case that the law can touch And he hates the boyandroe But why does he want to kill him IYou do not understand The boy inherits a great fortune from his mother Mr Knapp and I are left a trustees by the mothers will If had control of the boy the boy would die but it would be from cruelty dis 1 v ease neglect It would not be murder In the eye of the law But I know what would happen Ohsee the wretch How he hates me I was stunned with the words J hats heard They made much plain that had puzzled me yet they left much more in darkness and I looked blank ly at the figure on the other tug It was truly a strange sight The man Was beside himself with rage shoul ing gesticulating and leaping about i the deck in transports of passion He r showed every mark of a maniac Suddenly he drew a revolver and sent shot after shot in our direction We were far beyond the reach of a pistol bullet but Mrs Knapp screamed and dodgedtHow he hates me she cried again When the last shot was gone from his revolver the man flung thee weapon In frenzy as though he could hope to strike us thust Then a strange thing happened whether due to the effort he had made in the throw or to a lurch of the tug in the waves we left behind us or to a stumble over some obstruction I could not say But we saw the man suddenly pitch forward over the low bulwarks of the tug into thewaters of the bay Mrs Knapp gave a scream and cor ered her eyes Stop the boat I shouted Back pertJ The other tug had checked its head way at the same time and there was a line of six or seven men along its side There he is cried one The captain laid our tug across the tidal stream that swept us strongly toward Goat Island Then he steamed slowly toward the other tug Hes gone said Dicky The other tug seemed anxious to keep away from us as in distrust of 1 our gbcid intentions I scanned the waters carefully but the downing man tiadcggne down Then riring not 20 feet ac ay float ini f01 a moment on the surface of the water I saw plainly for the first time the very caricature of the face of J Doddridge Knapp The strong wolf t features which in the King of the Street were eloquent of power intel1 lectand sagacity were here marked withthe record of passion hatred and hadwf fever traced a likeness between them Give me that hook I cried lean lug over the side of the tug Go ahead a little One 01 the men threw a rope It passed too far and drifted swift Y be hindI made a wild reach with the hook f but it was too short Just as I thought jr I should succeed the face save a convulsive twitch as if in a parting out x burst of hate and wrath and the body sank out of sight I stood halfbewildeled with a bursting sense of relief by Mrs Knapp At last she took her hands tfront before her eyes anrt the first t Vor therah that cleao flip tmo UL tneAiameda Hills touched her calm XscJenin hopeful face A new day has dawned she said Let us give thanks to God CHAPTER XXX iA The End of the Journey For a few minutes we were silent 4 Water and land and sky started into I new glories at the touch of the rising The manyhilled city took on the thIesof a fairy picture and the wino fLpws gleamed with the magic fires that mere hashed back in greeting to the god of day J It seemed scarcely possible tha this ws the raging tossing water we had grossed last night And the fiery acenepf passion and death we head 1 just witnessed was so foreign to its calm beauties that I could believe it had happened elsewhere in some jpam of long ago i was roused by the voice of Mrs VKna p who att the head of the jbjjt stirs lodklni ateenUy over the i 1L f f t t llll r water I have not e dealt frankly with you she said Perhaps it is better that you should imowasyouJmow so much aii ady I feel that I may rely on your discretion t I think I can Keep a secret I replied concealing my curiosity I should not tell you if I did not have full confidence Then she was silent for a minute That man she continued at last with a shudder in her voice that man was Mr Knapps brother I suppressed an exclamation and she continued They have little in common even in iboks I wonder you thought for a moment that he was Mr Knapp Few people who know them both have traced a resemblance I think said I that the remark able circumstances under which I had seen Mr Lane had a good deal to do with the illusion This morning for the first time I saw his face under full light and close at hand Mrs Knapp nodded Then she con tinuedMr Knapp and his brother parted 30 years ago in Ohio The brother the man who has just gone was younger than Mr Knapp though he looked older He was wild in his youth When he left home it was in the night and for some otlenae that would have brought him within reach cf the law Mr Knapp never told me what it was and I never aked For 15 year nothing was heard of him Mr Knapp and I married we had come to San Francis o and he was al ready a rising man in the city One day this man came He had drifted to the coast in some lawless enter prise ana by chance found his brother Mrs Knapp paused And at once began to live off of him I ruppose I in an en couragement to proceedINot exactly said Mrs Knapp He confessed some of his rascality to Mr 4I nuTMH1W mN4RU t Knapp but pleaded that he was anx ious to reft nn Mr Knapp agreed to help him b it made the condition that he should take another name and should never allow the relationship to be known Mr LaneI can not call him by nip true namewas ready to agree to the conditions I think he was glad indeed to conceal himself under an assumed name and hide from the memory of his earlier years Had his crimes then been so great I asked as Mrs Knapp again ceased to speak He had been a wicked wicked man said Mrs Knapp The full tale of his illamy I never knew Mr Knapp helped him He prospered in business bought a ranch and turned farmer To x11 appearances he had re formed completely Well it was seven years ago that he married His wife was much younger than hea lovely girl and her parents were rich How he got her I do not see It was his gift or the tongae I suppose for he could talk well She was not happy with him but vas better contented when two years later her boy came Last year Mrs Lanes father died and she came in under the will for more than 1000 000 worth of property Then Mr Lane changed his habits He became most attentive to his wife He looked to her wants aad appeared to the world as a model husband But more was going on than we knew From the little she told me from the hints she dropped she must have looked upon him with dread She failed rapidly in health and six months ago she died Murdered I asked 1 believe it with all my soul said Mrs Knapp But there was no evi dencenot particle I tried to find it but i1 was beyond the power of the doctors to discover i And his motive He thought he was heir to her for tune When he found that she had left it with Mr Knapp and me in trust for the boy his rage was fright ful to see Before he had time to put any of his wicked thoughts into action took the boy to my home thinking that there I could keephim in safety ltNnapp poohpoohed my fears and when Mr Zane made a demand for the child Was in favor of giving him up The father is the one to care tor the boy he said and waslied his hands of the whole matter Then Mr Knapp had nothing to do with the affair one way or the other Oh nonothing jai all I believe f though that Henry did use his name with the polide to deter them from interfering with our plans t vTo be

i I r I qTHE WINCHESTER NEWS P a7 t i Jwhat Must Be Done to Stamp Out Iliiteracity in Kentucky4nI dTAdlress by Editor Harry A Som f meis of the Elizabethtown News before the midwinter K P Ameeting December 29 19081 t The public press and the public school are the twin sisters ofprog ress intelligence and civilization They are so intimately connected 7ith everything which makes better citizenship and better conditions that- t i a certain extent they are dependent upon each other Without the pub lic school the readers of the press would rapidly diminish and the State would soon drift back into the dark ness and ignorance of the past ages Without the public press the school vmld lose ground our liberties would be menaced and the advancement of humanity would receive a rude shock To no class of people in the State should the public school be more vital in importance than to the editors I regret to say that its an interest sadly neglected by most of our news papersWhile there have been marked im provement in every line of pursuit in the last decade our public schools show little if any improvement The last report of our Superintend ent of Public Instruction shows that there are 519415 white children of school age and only 196032 is the average attendance in school The public school was established pri marily to educate the poor children of the Commonwealth who would not be educated otherwise and these fig uresindicate that the very people for whom the schools were established are not getting the benefit of them An analysis of the figures reveal that ry more than onehalf of the white children of school age are not in school Of these a small part are in private schools a larger part have quit School but at least 200000 at a atfgreat mass of school children for whom the public school was estab lished and many of them are growing up illiterate Of the 192032 children who are in school it is safe to say threefourths of them are chil dren who would be educated at the expense of their parents if there were no public schools We can thereforo conclude that of the 500000 white children in Kentucky not exceeding 50000 poor children are getting the I benefit for thich the free school was established The attendance in our Idistrict schools is not increasing t hundreds of schools in remote sec Jtions are without teachers and pub education except in cities and towns is at a very low ebb Illiterate Conditions As a resultof 6ur miserable public school system the illiteracy in the i Kentuckys 200000 illiterate 1population produces 40 per cent i and 50 per cent of its paupers LESSON TOM DID NOT NEED Col Ochiltree Early Showed Precocity Along Lines on Which He After ward Became Famous Col Tom Ochiltree long time fa mous for his brilliant

dont know maam said the maid seriously but I seem to be A great change has come over me How great a change said the lady r Well maam replied the maid alwayshWashington Star v J J r t State is a natural sequence A comparison with other States in this re spect should bring the blush of shame to the cheek of every man who loves the dear old State of Kentucky Accordig to the last Government census there are 174768 white illiter ates in the State over six years of age ranking the State fortysixth in education only Louisiana and New Mexico being lower in the scale When it is considered that Kentucky was admitted into the Union over a hundred years ago that its pop ulation was made up of the best An gloSaxon blood and that it was the first Commonwealth in the South to establish free schools we must know that there is something radically wrong in our system of schools or oijr methods which puts it so low in the scale of education What is still worse is that in the number of illiterates there are 41000 children of school age who are growing up in that deplorable condition We have 21000 children between the ages of ten and fourteen years in this list and that we may better understand how much this means a comparison with some other States of equal or larger population will be instructive Kentucky 21000 Indiana 1368 j Illinois 3712 Massachusetts 1512 Ohio 1910 Iowa 823- lXIissDuri 9872 These figures are a comparison of white children only between the ages of ten and fourteen Pennsylvania with more than twice our population has onefourth the number of illit erate children and New York with four times the population has not a third as many I have taken the trouble to locate our white illiterate children and find that for the most part they in dis tricts remote from railroads and in rather sparsely settled sections and not in our cities and towns To illustrate this Louisville with over 15000 school children between the ages referred to has only 222 illiterate and Lexington has only 82 while one single mountain county with less than 4000 children has 600 Our best counties are not ex empt from the blight of illiteracy You can take ten from the bluegrass section where there is so much cul ture and refinement and there are more illiterate white children of school age than in the whole State of Massachusetts or Nebraska That we may be more fully advised as to the location of our illiterate we present the following figures from United States census of 1900 Clay County 3375 Floyd county 3280 Grayson county 2353 Harlan county 2525 Lawrence

The other day42 years laterhe- was laughing at his oldtime prophe cy and boasting of his good health In his happy mood he bought an old cottage from a friend andstraight way went to inspect it In the garden there was a quantity of old iron and among itashell dating from 1866 He picked it up and was examining it when it exploded and he was killed on the spot The prophecy had come true Zeitung

taxation Ohio county 2350 Pulaski county 3225 Pike county 4941 Whitley county 3327 Before I leave this branchof my subject let me remind you that from 1890 to 1900 that illiteracy among white children decreased only 9 per cent while it decreased for the same period over 30 per gent among the negro children that there are more white illiterate children and more illiterate white than negro voters in Kentuckyilliteracy Produces Crime I think I am prepared to show that the number of illiterates are not only a disgrace to the State but that illiteracy is the most fruitful cause of pauperism and crime that by stamp inp out illiteracy we would not only rid the State of the renroach that rests upon her but would at the same time improve the morals character and thrift of the people I have examined the last annual report of the Prison Commissioners and find that of the 1350 prisoners confined in the Frankfort penitentiary 547 of them according to the report have no ed ucation This ought to be a startling fact to all students of criminology Our 18 per cent illiterate population produces 40 per cent of the criminals in one penitentiary while the 82 per cent that can read and write only produces 60 per cent of the con victed felons Every 300 of our il literate population has produced one felon in tho Frankfort penitentiary while only one felon is to be found in every 2500 of our Copulation which can read and write If all our population was illiterate there would be more than two and a half times as many criminals in the Frankfort prison while if there was no illiter acy the number would be reduced from 1350 to 900 The figures prove that teaching all to read and write wouldreduce our criminal class 25 per cent Iam satisfied that the same ratio would hold good in our jail prisoners that exists in the pen itentiary An investigation of a few county poorhouses indicates that at least 50 per cent of our paupers are uneducated most of whom would be breadwinners if they had received a common school education The cost in dollars and cents for the pros ecution and maintenance ofourcrim inals and the cost of support of pau pers would be more than ten times sufficient to give each one of them a liberal education Remedies Which Do Not Touch Case- I have endeavored to give a faith fuland full diagnosis of this case If the patient has been handled a little roughly it was more fully to un derstand all the troubles that proper remedies might be applied It is not A SUITABLE SEED BED Prof Thomas Shaw Tells How to Pre pare Such The Importance of a good seed bed cannot be easily overestimated If the seed bed is not suitable for receiving the seed when it is sown growth will be handicapped right at the start and when young plants do not start well only the most favorable weather con ditions can result in a good crop When clay lands have been plowed in the autumn they should not be stirred in the spring until they have dried out so much that they will not pack when cultivated or harrowed To stir them at an earlier period would mean that they would soon become so cloddy that the young plants could make no headway Even though wait ing should mean late sowing those lands should not be stirred until they are dry On the other hand certain sandy soils and also soils of the prairie will dry more quickly if they are stirred even before they are dry enough to sow To stir them up with the cultiva tor or harrow will put them in con dition for being sown earlier than would otherwise be practicable As early sown cereal crops are usually the best the advantage thus obtained by advancing the sowing two or three days may be material When clay lands are plowed in the spring it will be fatal to the crop for the season if they are plowed while possessed of too much water in the willbethough such lands should be a little underdry when plowed if they freeze more or less for several nights in succession they will be brought to a crumbling consistency- Of course prairie lands in the north western estates may be sown in many instances as soon as the frost Is out far enough below to admit of furnish lug a good covering for the grain Moisture is then supplied from below Area of City of London The county of London covers 7512 acres but the London police area is 443421 Nacres f lio h Teachers should be paid ac cording to number taught instead ofaccording to number in district a hopeless case what has cured other States from these troubles will be just as effective in Kentucky Our last Legislature seemed to realiz that there was something the matter with our educational interests What it didwas in the interest of normal and high school education While Iam most heartily in favor of both it does not reach our case and our trouble Neither reaches the poor lit tIe log school house in the remote sections The normal trained teacher never goes there and the children from there are not able to pay their board to attend the High School in the county seat An appropriation of 500000 for normal schools and university education se r d largely by gentlemen in the Legislature from cities where these institutions are lo cated smacked too much of selfish interest and indicated either a lack of knowledge or a lack of regard to the question of illiteracy It like building a gilded dome lookedI foundation of the building is crumbling and needs immediate attention It for mathwas preparation higher ematics and the classics when what we need is the multiplication table and the spelling book I think the State should be more interested in lifting the incubus of illiteracy from a finsished education to children of well todo parents State Liberal Community Niggardly The free school had its origin in the comml1niity educationicated otherwise The State realizes that its advancement and best inter ests are subserved by an educated citizenship Realizing this fact Ken tucky has done her full part from a financial standpoint The State 1eJ capita is larger than in any other Southern State and in only thr States in the Union is it greater The trouble is not in the amount the State pays but in what the commun ity fails to pay This year the State pays 365 for every child of school age in the Commonwealth while the average of the local tax is less than twentyfive cents upon the parent for each childs schooling The average man spends more in a week for tobacco and liquorthan he does toward the education of his child for a whole year He takes his family to a cir cus show and spends more money to get under the canvass for a few hours pleasure than he is willing to pay to move the shame of ignorance from his home The State is inter ested in every child to the extent of 365 a year and this interest can only be of a general nature while ITHE DANCING SEASON The sitLin-g on a sofa which she had all to herself to her favorite admirerI thought you were a mind reader Rather Im an expert said the youngman

State does A boy had better be born blind than allowed to grow up illiterate He had better be born deaf and dumb than to grow up without education for we have instances of marvelous success of mutes and those who have never seen the light of days but in this age there can be no success with those afflicted with illiteracv I mentioned that Kentucky ranked third in its State per capita but there s another fact which is more signifi itIis nearly as low in rank as in illiteracy There cannot lie a successful localIinterest and the more you center the interest around the localschool the taxfdoesdemonstrated in the other Statescon elusively The State which have the greatest local taxatiqn are the ones which have the fewest number of il literates and the States which have the smallest amount of local taxation are the States with the greatest num ber of illiterates Some Remedies Suggested How are we to meet and correct the trouble in Kentucky It is permit ted under the law now for every dis trict to vote a local tax and yet the very d strietg which need it most will not vote it I would suggest that the Legislature should either pass a law requiring every school district in the State to levy a local tax of a certain amount or else provide that 20 per cent of the State school fund to be held to he paid pro rata to such districts which will vote local taxes of a certain definite amount This would be an incentive and encouragement to districts to help and the schoolteachers themselves would lend ma terial aid to it being done Pay Should Be According to Number Taught There is another suggestion would like People in Pike county are not converted to Christianity by sermons notmatter how convincing and elo quent delivered in this citv but the preacher has to go to Pikeqounty and reach the people themselves and let them personally hear the word We do not undertake to convert the heathen in China or Africa by preaching in New York or Chicago but we send the missionaries to these people in their own country This address will not reach the people for whom it is intended to help either by word or mouth or the printed page so let use send missionaries to the school districts We have about 7000 school districts and I believe that start co J J 4 IWhy do you continue bathing your knees elbows one a time you stretch in a tem pered to suit you and can do so

number of children in the district I propose to pav hint largely according to the number he gets to attend school Today in Kentucky our best teachers arej riot necessarily those who knqwrthe most or impart it the the most children Instead of the County School Superintendent dividing the money among the teachers each month which be receives front the State according to the per capita of their respective districts only wnysIDnebe Y te average attendance per month its compared with the other districts in the county In this way every teach er will visit every home in the dis trict he will persaude and urge the parents to send their children he will want them to come every day during the term Where persausion is not effective he will be apt to remind them of the compulsory law which is
