Winches ter at Midnight Fridayr The city was visited by another costly conflagration at midnight Fri day night when fire the origin of whicH is unknown almost completely destroyed the livery stable of Clyde Gaines on Court street entailing a uilyIinated in the loft and had gained con siderable headway before it was dis covered and had it not been for the hard work an dheroic efforts of the fire laddies after their arrival it would have probably resulted in the costliest conflagration the history of the city j Narrowest Streets The stable was on one of the nar rowest streets in the city with build ings all round it and located at the rear ofit is the big Miller stables which for a time the spreading of the flames to it and the other adjoining buildings seemed almost inevitable and if they had there would have been no end to the loss that would have beep incurred but by the ef forts of the firemen and the number of citizens thin had gathered at the firo the flames were qonfiried to the one building j Fell From Ladder Mr James A McCourt one of the firemen fell from a ladder in front of the burning building striking his head against the sidewalk sustaining a very painful though not serious injury He was pickedupunconscious land was taken into the police courtroom where medical aid was given him He was taken to his home on Winn avenue iu a carriage and a re port from there at an early hour Sat urday morning states that he is rest ing very comfortable 15 Horses in the Building There was about 15 horses in the buildingat the time of the fire and by hard and brave work on the part of the firemen and several stable at taches they were all saved Only a few of the carriages and buggies were saved aid only about three sets of harness were gotten out The loss on some of the buggies will not be total as a good many of them can be repaired Pathetic Scene One rather pathetic scene was en acted during the fire in getting out two of the horses When the fire was at its height all of the horses had been out but two they were in the extreme rear end of the building when the fire was burning the worst and it seemed their loss was almost certain The horses could be seen through the windows rearing up in their stalls and heard nickering as if calling for help as the flames and smoke was crowding in them Dennis Daniels a well Ion and respected colored citizen who had heard the horses calling for help in their mute way could not stand the scene and he went to Ike Tracy who was in the front of the building fighting the flames and with begI help getthe horses out assuring Mr Tracy that if he was overcome with the smoke he would stay with him as long as he could and get lain out Mr Tracy assuring him the same support the two men started crawling on their burningbuilding and released them from their per ilous position The blankets on the horses when they were brought out were afire The men could have taken nojreater chances with their lives of displayed anymore bravery to have saved a human life than they did tog t these two hprses outf GENERAL DAVIS WHO HEADS AMERICAN RED CROSS RELIEF General George W Davis U S A is chairman of the central

executive and judicial appropriation bill increasing the salary of the president to 100 000 of the vice president and speak- erof the house of representatives to 20000 with 5000 additional allow ances for carriages and coachmen for the vice resident and speaker and increases for the judiciary aggregating 328500 precipitated a lively difr cussion in the senate Senator Borah of Idaho made ft point of order against these increases on the ground that they involve gen eral legislation which according to the rules of the senate can not be placed in an appropriation bill la face of a single objection The debate centered upon the first of the amendments objected to which was to increase the salary of the speaker of the house of representatives and various criticisms were called forth against such extensive advance of salaries Mr Clay spoke against the pro POST increases which he said ag grcgatd 404500 He based his op position en the ground that the additions were too great and said he would not oppose smaller ones The appropriation for the navy this year he predicted would amount to 140 000000 and thus be more thanever carried in any appropriation bill for that purpose He insisted that he had no feeling against the newly elected president but he thought that the time had come when congress should consider these expenditures He had been anxious to know how much money was spent for keeping up the White House but had not been able to get the figures If president were called upon to pay all these expenses said Mr Clay 200000 a year would not be too muchN The president he said should have enough salary to live im dignity but he was convinced that sumptuous living would not redound to the benefit of the country The simple life he said plain- living and high thinking bring the best results TACKLE BIG COUNTIES AntiSaloon League Plans For Four Rose Law Elections Columbus O Jan 16Thc Anti Saloon leaguo has under considers tion local option campaigns in Ma honing Ottawa

Square Way Changed Into a Beautiful Park On the opening of the new lands in Oklahoma a thriving little city was established in the midst of which was laid out a public square In the center of this the courthouse was placed and around it were built strag gling structures such as characterize frontier towns The people of the town seemed not to care and the un kempt waste was for ten years neg lected and forsaken Then came the useful cltizenin this case a young business man who with a love of nature deep seated in his soul felt the heinousness of local conditions He plowed and harrowed the square as for a crop He planted it with bits of trees which seemed scarcely more than straws These he set in rows like corn and cultivated as IIP would have the maize Throughout the torrid days of the Oklahoma summer he carefully culti vated these little trees while his fel low townsmen looked on and smiled But the trees grew and in a year were two feet high In artother year they had grown to five feet hundreds and thousands of them and the square took on the appearance ofn young nursery Then the useful citizen or the superintendent as he was now called officially notified the cit izens that they could buy the little trees at a low price and he sold them in abundance without in any wise in terfering with his plans the beauti fylng and adorning of the square and he soon had sold enough to pay all the experimcntIbrageous thrifty find vigorous making of the square a park increasing in beauty daily and in summer the de light of children and family parties for miles around In fact the park Is now the most attractive resort within a radius of more than a score miles and it but represents the work of a single up to date citizen What a world of good an organized band of workers could do in

instructive editorial on literacy in Kentuclty The Evening Post wishes to coif rect certain statistics relative to il 1iteracy in Kentucky It is frequently said that the negro population of our State helps rather than impairs the standing of the State as to illit cracy the usual deduction being that there are more illiterate whites than negroes in Kentucky Exactly the contrary is the fact The negro population of Kentucky is popithe far South but illiteracy is more general among the blacks in Kentucky than among the whites 7 Comparisons re1tve to illiteracy made by the United States Census Bureau the authority uponsuchkmat- ters are made of children between ten and fourteen years of age The Census Uereau states that this is the t only safe basis for comparison Taking tliias a basis the govern imentare among every 1000 white chil tdrenof this age m Kentucky 746 illiterates The 1000 colored chjl drenln Ivpntueicy there ills 1494 illiterates 3 Thus it wil be seen that among the 4 5 children of school age in Kentucky r the proportion of illiteracy among the negroes is just twice as large as tt among the whites When the whole population is taken 5nto consideration the figures are J histXsp complete but as ras they are rnrIishet they show that the ne muchMbetter educated as compared to the- Raefult egfo populalion than are the fTrVkjUsschool h eJucation has not been gen erally

eniment that when the total popula tion ofall the States is taken into consideration Kentucky has a better relative standing in the table of the States in the matter of illiteracy than when only the white population of the States is considered The reason for this is plain The negroes of Kentucky are better edu cated than the negroes of the Southern States The people of Kentucky have been and still are more generous with the school funds for negro education As in the States of the far South the negroes contribute but a small amount proportionately to the school fund but the whites of Kentucky nevertheless give largely of the school fund to the cause of negro education Thus where Kentucky had i94ne gro illiterates for the 1000 Mississ ippi lias 3223 Alabama has 4461 West Virginia 3475 This better ed ucated condition of the blacks in Kentucky sites the standing of the State when comparisons are made between the whites onlvof some States But if the notbin Kentucky the total percentage of illiteracy in Kentucky would be much smaller To make the point clear we will compare the States of Kentucky and Florida I nthe comparative table of States it will be seen that when the whole population of both States is taken into consideration Kentucky has the better standing in the point of illiteracy But if only the whites of Florida and the whites of Ken tucky are compared Florida stands better To the 1000 Kentucky has 746 white illiterates and 1494 negro il literates To the 1000 people Florida has 694 white illiterates and 2344 negro illiterates Thus the whites of Florida are lightly better educated than the whites of Kentucky butthe vastly better condition of our negro population as compared with the ne gro population of Florida gives our State a better standing when the qn t tIre populations are compared Edueatiotlalconditions hi our State OAn and should be greatly improved but as a State we have no reason to f i ashamed of the fact that we ed ucate the negroes of Kentucky better than any other State in which the ne groes for ma large part pf the popu lation The two tables of comparison are there misleading We refer to them not to lessen popular condemnation of illiteracy but that actual facts may be grasped which is that if our white population has been so neglected that we fall below the scale of New En gland and slightly below Florida one reason is we have a large negro pop ulation which New England has not and so instead of concentrating our innoheron white educatino we have shared it with the blacks andwe have sueeeedediu reducing

the coat at any late afternoon affair and show the princess gown with thin yoke and sleeves I had a splendid opportunity to study the newest creations And mighty prett were many of the costumes worn by stunning girls under their long fur coats An attractive frock affecte by a chic young matron had its long clinging skirt of the finest wistaria colored chiffon broadcloth while the entire bodice as clinging as the skirt was of velvet matching the cloth an braided in self colored soutache Th guimpe was of net in the color of th velvet but only the collar and a spas of an inch or two below the base o the throat were transparent the rest of the net being laid over gold lace When this stunning creature left the room I saw that a long redingote of cloth belonged with this costume Dont have a white guimpe put in your new princess frock for all th smart creations I saw at Sherrys had the new effect in self colored net wit very often a design in soutache ap plied under it or oriental galloon

and Pay son whom theyheld to be accountable for the sudden disappearance about a year before of their leader Buck Mc Kee a half breed from the Cherokee strip However no other leader had arisen equal to that masterful spirit and their enmity expressed itself only in such petty depredations as chang ing brands on stray cattle from the Bar One and Sweetwater ranches und the slitting of the tongues of young calves so that these would be unable to feed properly and as a result be disowned by their mothers whereupon the Lazy K outfit would slap its brand- on them as mavericks Allen was a Kentuckian who had served in the Confederate army as one of Morgans raiders and so had re ceived by popular brevet the title of colonel At the close of the war he had come to Arizona with his young wife Josephine and had founded n home on the Sweetwater He was now one of the cattle barons of the great southwest Prosperity had not spoiled him Careless in his attire cordial in his manner he was a man who was loved and respected by his men from the newest tenderfoot to the veteran of the bunk house His wife however was not so highly regarded for she had never been able to recog nize changes in time or location and so was in perpetual conflict with her en viromnent She attempted to make the free and independent cowboys of the Arizona plains stand around like the house servants of the Kentucky bluegrass and she persisted in the effort to manage her husband by the fern mine artifice of weeping In the days of her youth and beauty this hadbeen very effective but now that these had passed It was productive only of goo humored rrillery from him and mirt from the bystanders No wonder Jim has the finest rant in Arizony the cowboys were wont to say with Josephine aIrrigatin it all

3a ynh 4 ji i i t fI i b SPECIAL MESSAGE OF ROOSEVELT TODAY Nation Should Preserve Control i of Its Water Power Washington Jan 15With a spe cial message to congress President Roosevelt today returned without ap proval the house bill authorizing Wil liam H Standish to construct a dam across James river in Stone county Missouri and divert a portion of its waters through a tunnel into said river again to create electric power The president holds the measure Gives to the grantee a valuable privilege which by its very nature is monopolistic and does not contain the conditions essential to protect the public interest In vetoing the bill the president declares the action to be in pursuance of a policy declared in his message of Feb 26 1908 trans mining the report of the inland wa terways commission to congress Ac cordingly he says he has decided to sign no bills of this nature herdafter which do not provide specifically for the right to fix and make a charge and for a definite limitation in time pf the rights conferred The presi dent continues We are now at the beginning of a great development in water power Its use through electrical transmis sion in entering more and more large ly into every element of Ute daily life Of the people Already the evils of monopoly are becoming manifest and already the experience orthe past shows the necessity of caution mak ing unrestricted grants of these great powersMr Roosevelt contends that the federal government in granting a li cense to dam a navigable river has the power to impose any conditions it finds necessary to protect the public including a charge and limitation of time He says it follows congress can impose conditions upon its con sent Believing that the national government has the power the president declares its power ought to be exercised He proceeds The people of the country are threatened by a monopoly far more powerful because in far closer touch with their domestic and individual life than anything known to our ex perience A single generation will see the exhaustion of our natural re sources of oil and gas and such a rise in the price of coal as will make the price of electrically transmitted water power a controlling factor in transportation in manufacturing and in household lighting and heating To give away without condition this one of the greatest of our resources would be an act of folly If we are guilty of it our children will be forced to pay an annual return upon a capitalization based upon the highest prices which the traffic will bear They will find themselves face to face with powerful interests intrenched be hind the doctrine of vested rlgnts and strengthened by every defense which money can buy and the ingenu ity of able corporation lawyers can deviseAccording to the president 13 large concerns including the General Elec tric company and the Westinghouse companyhadvantageoushper cent of the total water power now in use This he states is likely to be strengthened by the increasing demand for power and the extension of long distance electrical transmission The president adds It is in my opinion relatively unimportant for us promotersfwith any of the great corporations If we make an unconditional grant to this grantee our control over it ceases He or any purchaser from him will be free to sell his rights to anyone of them at pleasure The preventeThe president then repeats the hisPin which he urged the adoption of a policy along the following lines A inian in reasonable time for development proca or to be b a ofea designated official to annul the orcYplans are not out accord ance with the authority granted a license fee nominal at outset that can in tie future be adjusted so as to secure a control in the interest of tIle public Another condition suggested is that a license should be forefeited upon proof that the licensee has join ed in any conspiracy or unlawful tom bination in restraint of trade asis provided for grants of coal lands in Alaska by the act of May 28 190S In conclusion President Roosevelt says I inclose a letter from the commissioner of corporations setting forth the results of his investigations and the evidence of time farreaching GeneralElectricElectric and Manufacturing company and other large concerns for consoli- datIon of the water powers of the country under their

of it was concerned that did not come till years later In 1809 water and horseflesh were the chief motor powers boats wagons and stagecoaches were the almost exclusive methods of travel candles und tallow dips were used as illuminants there were but few newspapers and these small and poorly printed and letters were infrequent voluminous and cost much for postage Only a small percentage of the

is history For all that 1809 was a noteworthy yearnoteworthy for its promise rath er than its performance During it were born two of the great poets of the last century Edgar A Poe and Alfred Tennyson And on Feb 12 1809 the very day that Lincoln was born Charles Robert Darwin saw the light Lincoln and Darwin Whir could be found two mightier names in their respective spheres Lincoln who freed the bodies of men and Dar win who freed their minds Lincoln whp taught us that the black man i our brother and Darwin who taught us that the ape is our great grand father both men majestic in their patient homely simplicity both earn ing the right of earthly immortality by their unexampled services to the hu man race Darwin the founder o evolution who has revolutionized the thought of the world Lincoln the liberator of the negro the preserver of the republic the incarnation of democracy who has shown the world vlia 9O the full statured American will be For the sake of these two Feb 12 18C9 should be a far shining day In this same year occurred a not theIauthor of the Declaration of Independence one of the founders of the French revo lution and almost one of its martyrs died in 1S09 friendless and alone in the country he had helped to liberate Paine tried to free mankind intel lectually as well as politically and thus gained the enmity of those who loved either kind of chains which meant practically everybody But the day is coming and is not far distant when the world will place him as high as before it placed him low Thais one of the laws of justice Everything is balanced at last The ig nominy placed on the name of Thomas Paine at last will turn to refulgent glory for so It is written in the book of destiny The writings of Paine had a great influence on Lincoln both In religion and politics In his younger days Lincoln wrote ai book upholding the Ideas of the Age of Reason and intended to have it jmblished butsom e overzealous friend snatched it from his hands and gave it to the flames Butthe thought could not lie burned and Herndon and all the I bi ographers of the martyr president who knew him well state thathe did not materially clmttge his views tiSLitho day of his death It was in the political domain how evcr where Paine influenced Lincoln most profoundly As one was 4tSne author of the Declaration cf Iiifie- tjcndeuce so the other became its lefcuder and apcstle One of tIle greatest pieces of eloquence that ever fll from the emancipators lips was in support of this charter of the rights of man Indeed both Jefferson and Lincoln were pupils of Paine whom the world will some day recognize as the founder of modern democracy Jefferson sullied his work by trying to steal the honor due his teacher Lincoln was the truer and more hoporable scul and practiced the teachings of the new political gospel withmore fidelityrWhen Lincoln was born Paine was about to take his deathbed and Jeffer son in three weeks would relinquish the presidency In Europe Napoleon had reached his zenith and In a few years would begin his downfall The steam engine was invented and the steamboat was launched but nobody knew what either meant The world heel not awakened to modern progress but was stirring in its sleep The particular corner of the earth in which Lincoln saw the light was al most virgin wilderness Kentucky at that time was not only frontier but raw frontier at that It was nature unmodified and unadorned It waf good fundamental stuff out of which to make a man provided the man was fundamental enough and strong enough to build himself out of such material It takes a bright soul to shine out through a casing of such environmen and such heredity But there has been a vast amount of unintentional running down of Lin colns surroundings His parents rely tines neighbors education associates and even hi wife have come in for a ThistLincoln does not need to have his cir cumstances or his people minimized in order that he may seem great Prob ably they do not show well by the con Theyfcumstances and people oft that tilde The ordinary hill may look very insig nificant beside a mountain but the hill cannot help that The Lincolns were poor but so was everybody else Equality is a leaven which leaves poverty not onehalf so bitter Lincoln was born in a log floorbutfirst saw light on the Kentucky fron tier of that day Ida Tarbell indig nantly denies that Thomas Lincoln Abrahams father was the lazy loafer he has been pictured and as that is tlie more charitable view and as Miss Tar bell is a woman I am going to side with her Miss Tarbell also takes uptime cudgels for Lincolns mother and as there are two women in this case 1 side with her more than ever More over a fair investigation shows that the charitable view is the right one Thomas and Nancy Hanks Lincoln were an honorable self respecting and industrious couple fully up to the aver age or above the average of the time in which they lived The same thing applies to Lincolns environment It was not bad It was only crude All these things are com parative Besides there is a whole lot of unnecessary fuss made about the early accidents that surround great men An acorn will grow an oak if the soil is anywhere near to being half decent in which it is drop ped One of the immortals cannot be explained by the presence or absence of plush carpet on the floor of the bedroom in which he is born Neither bank credits nor their effects can mak or seriously mar a real genius who in herits their command Poverty could not overwhelm Lincoln any more than wealth could spoil Roosevelt Time worst that can be said of the Kentucky of Lincolns day is that it was new but it was also wholesome As for the hard life the simple fare the primitive surroundings what worth while man was ever retarded by things such as these Man is not a slave of things He is- ill the image of the Maker of things bydivineAll of Abraham Lincolns life was a proof of this principle By the sheer greatness of his heart his intellect and his soul he overcame an adverse environment He had few of the helps that are regarded as essential by most men He was without the assistance of family or wealth early training or influential connections the prepared steps of the stairway to success He had to climb the heights alone Mr Lincoln said and did many great things but was greater than anything he said or did He was in the fore front of one of earths fiercest strug gles and yet is known chiefly as an exponent of liberty brotherhood and peace He was the largest figure in one of the crises in the worlds history and yet lent more luster to his epoch than he gained from it Lincolnwill be a lire figure in the minds of men when the occasion that gave him prom inence shall pace grown vague and greatIstage setting he is the actor It is but the background of the picture he the paintingshe is the statue Who remembers that Socrates fought in a war or that Bud dha was heir to a kingdom Alexan der did not derive his importance from Macedon nor Cicero from Catiline It was great for Lincoln to free the slave bhincoln THE WINCHESTER NEWS IThe Best T1 Clark Mediumin County Now is the time for
