president has been Jn communication 1 whojjI on It is admitted that a systematic agi 1 tation was in progress on the coast but a significant feature of its lack of strength was the fact that the labor leaders had taken no prominent part in it Indeed it has been stated to the administration that the real mainspring of the agitation was to be found in some of the great corpora tions tha had found their profitable business of coolie transportation threatened with destruction by the success attending the efforts of the administration to stop tais class of Immigration For the fact is that in the opinion of the administration the negt tiations wth Japan fora practically complete closure of American ports to the entry of Japanese lobor ers are certainly jeopardized by the extreme utterances of certain persons consldIleratlonentertained by the Nevada legisla ture Even agreements lready reached perfectJapanese government are endangered in the sense that the present agita tion might very naturally tend tot abate the interest of the Japanese of j ficials in the execution of their obli gations in view of the unfriendly atti tude assumed by some elements on the pacific coast It is these ceased erations that have influenced the president in reaching the conclusion that everything possible should be done to prevent the enactment of Legislation by any state that would discriminate against the Japanese as a class apart from other foreign ele ments entering America There is no objection whatever by the administration to laws prohibiting all aliens from holding land in Amer ica For this is now under the revise statutes the law in the district of Columbia and the territories and some of the states Indeed there is a similar law in Japan and the gov rnment of that country consequently could not regard it as antiJapanese legislation if adopted in California confidencetla certain they will do right in this matterThe administration is much pleased with the tone of the speech of Pre 1rriier Komura in the Japanese dietso far as it touched upon the relations b tween America and Japan Mysterious Man Identified mystman n xlm Memphis for the past two weeks identified by

Lincoln throughout his life re mained one of the plain people This was in no sense condescension on the part of the great souls In many cases it arose from bitter necessity In others it was their method of proclaiming themselves one with the most numerous class of men It was their method of preaching the gospel of equality It was their man ner of showing contempt for outer dis tinctions the

remote from the teachings and life of the Nazarene There is more than pleasantry in Lincolns remark that God must love the common people he made so many of them Like most of his humorous quips that will bear serious study Lincoln also said that nothing could be Inherently wrong which most of the people practiced or Something to that effect I am not so sure about that dqcfrlne butt It shows the great liber ors attitude It grew out of his overwhelming desire to make himself one with his fellow men especially the poorest of liis fellow men He had not in his makeup one shred of the holier than

EdgertonIi American Press thatothersas any man on the planet This was the quality in him which has scarcely been analyzed but which so endeared him to the mass of men In his life he changed democracy from a theory a practice He Incarnated it Ito all the world might seei His up of the plain people was not pose It was his method of building- a government of1 the plain through all the years that are to be was his method of recognizing mass against class his profound plan of making the lowest strata of society better by thinking them better and so inducing them to think thcmselve bettertSmall miqds affect to despise the common Great souls behold In thn which is most common that which most universal and therefore most divine Herein is the deep philosophy or Lincolns remark about Gods love for the common people What is more common than thr grass yet what is more beautiful Hills mountains rivers forestsII oceansthese are seen of all they are the most enchanting thinjr of life What flower is so common yet so beautiful as the rose So it is in men That whkhIs greatest In any mind is that which ha in common with all other minds Gen ius Is the power of stating fully arc adequately what everybody else thinks He Is greatest who is most universal who Includes most of what is in others If man Is made in the image of God then all men are made in tIlt image of God and he includes what Is in all men The more therefore that we can include of what is in others the more godlike we become This one part of the philosophy of democ racy a phase so amply and happily Illustrated In the life of Lincoln But this divinity of the common knot all there is of democracy nor aP that Lincoln embodied of it It best for people to govern thernselvV r Lincoln Riding His Circuit n a j t sn it is h because they thus develop their put ers and bring out their Inherent possi bilities One of the worst things a monarchyis that the people learn depend on the king to do for what it would be better for them to for themselves By depending on an other their own faculties b ca atrophied through lack of use Tb the best one man government is wor than the worst popular government If the masses lean on one or on a few all their own higher powers which called forth In government rema dormant Men are as good and as great for the most part as they themselves They can do what th are compelled to do The reason th government Is best which goner least Is that It makes the indiridu- dofor himself Use makes for growt The man who has to use his will bin 1eylrpSt entireness Centuries of popular gov

them ere day othiS life He wanted t getiwjj r t I c r t Jif from rife littleness of class into the bigness of the mass He knew the worst enemy of man is that very habit of separating ourselves from others because we think we are better than they Because of conduct or convention or blood or dollars or some other purely external or accidental thing we exclude somebody By so doing we ex clude God who is universal and has all In his image By so doing we exclud- our own complete and higher natures for in us is a correspondence to nil other beings Caste Ia prison tothos- In it and an insult to all others I dwarfs the individual and divides the state It is artificial and denies the universality of Gods love It is doom ed to die with the other lies of an out worn age Such souls as Lincoln have given the race a new and broader out look We now see he Is greatest not who Is most exclusive but who is most inclusive He is highest who has most completely and adequately what is in all other men Common sense thus becomes the irosr rrecious kind sense It istlu wLxipm derived fro all experience hit which is mos common is must universal and that which is most universal is most divine If we get deep enousrli into this philos ophy we shall have explained the homely anecdotes the unassuming clothes and manners and the demo cratic attitude of Abraham Lincoln likewise his love for the plain people ire hire not had democracy as yet He was the prophet of the democracy that Is to be A kindred trait in Lincoln Is like wise illuminative He saw the clear distinction between private and pub lie He was most charitable to faults the while he fought public ones With the first he had little or no con cern They were none of his business With the last he had every concern for he being a part of the state th public faults to that extent were his faults He was responsible for themI along with all other citizens This at titude he carried through life opposing every public wrong he wa most lenient and merciful to the indi Tidual wrongdoer He pardoned such whenever he could do so without in jury to society The same tendency was shown in another way and brought on Lincoln criticism from his old Illinois friends aud relatives He refused for the mos part to appoint them to office boldin that the private attachments of Lincoln the individual should in nowise influence tae acts of Lincoln the presi dent He believed his old friends and neighbors to be incompetent for the offices they asked for However much he wanted to accommodate them how ever much their ill f would hur- him he could not allow personal nctsasakin tQ treason to the state Nepotism was impossible to this pure minded man and graft private gain at publi- expense would have seemed the grea est of crimes because a crime against society hI8Ifrom appointing his enemies if he thought the state needed their services A conspicuous example Is found In the naming of Edwin M Stanton for secretary of war af the time the most important place In the govern ment second to that of the president himself Stanton had been criticism Lincoln in the most persistent and o fensive fashion He had called him ape and other names quite as unto plimentary Once in a lawsuit in cinnati he had snubbed Lincoln and hurt him cruelly But Stanton was a Union man and one of great energy and acknowledged ab1lltrMr Lincoln believed him the man to place at the head of the war department Notwithstanding Stantons Irascible temper and other faults the step hns bee approved by history What other president with the possible exception Washington was great enough place a personal enemy in his official family on the sole ground that the nation needed him Where was tbei ever a more perfect example of diva d tab private from public concerns On the circuit Lincoln rode at first an old horse and afterward drove a dilapidated looliiug buggy He car vied a faded umbrella and wore for the most part a hat that had sern better days He

SUPPLY Deration of the Coal Mines Requires Thousands of Feet of Timber J v in the Form of Props Coal mining next in importance lumberinatg among the important industries of dependenft upon the forests for its existence t Few people who are not directly con nected with mining realize that the operation of the mines requires thousands of feet of timber in the form of props Cement and other materials have been tried for this use in the mines but no satisfactory substitute has been found The Coal Industry The coal industry brings more tlia 10000000 a year to the State o Kentucky According to the State Inspector of Mines Kentucky produced in 1905 8039246 tons of coa- lr from IIAT larger mines not locnluseJ those that produce only for In 1906 this had increased to 9598 J 529 tons while last year 1907 10 436061 tons were taken out of this same class of mines Forest Conditions In the recent study of the forest conditions of Kentucky made by the Forest Service in cooperation with the State Board JVgriculture For ashIJntain to what extent the mining corn panies were dependent on timber what was their present and future available supply and what steps if any might be taken to insure the permanence of that supply Most of Most of the companiesI ating in Kentt some timberland and draw at least part of their supply of mining tim bers from tlieir own land These com panies seldom keep any account of the amount or value of the timber thus cut their only charge being the cost of cutting and delivering this timber to the mines Few companies separate the cost of sawn timber and split or round props and also keep the purchase cost with the cost of placing in the mine under the one head of timbering It is plain what difficulty this puts in the wayof obtaining reliable data Best Figures Obtainable From the best figures obtainable it has been calculated that in the eastern and southeastern parts of the State it takes on an average six tenths ofa cubic foot of round or split timber for each ton of coal removed This includes props caps room ties and collars but does not iuI elude rails brattice or other sawn lumber The mines in this region are usually above water line and are en terpdjonrtfliev level while in the West deP h tts are mostly used The pof is usually slgte in the East and SO DorG props are needed than in the Wesrwhere a limestone roof of ten makes the use of props unnecessary In this latter region an aver age ofabout onefourth ofa cubic oAt Xf timber per ton of coal is needed varying with the nature of the roof The Total Output The total output of 10436061 tons of coal for Kentucky in 1907 was taken from something like 300 mines basistrtiiI Over 4000000 cubic feet of roun- dW mining timber oran equivalent of about 2400000 feet board measure of timber in tie year which is about 80000 feet board measure to the average mine of 35000 tons annual output Though this is not all cut from merchantable saw timber much the greater part of it is The mines are usually supplied by contract and e as the larger timber issplit up yields more props and is consequently easier and cheaper to handle it is generally taken in preference to the smaller growth Contractors are us ually given a free hand and often the finest ash poplar and white oak timber is made up into props in pref erence to the less valuable species Besides Slit Props Besides the spjit props there is something like one board foot of sawn timber per ton of coal put into the mines in the year for rails and brat tice etc It cannot be determined how much sawn timber is used above ground for tipple and other construe tion but one board feet per ton would bea very conservative estimate At this rate the average mine would require about 70000 feet of sawn tlum her besides the split or round timber which would amount to an equivalent bf 80000 board feet more f 3000 Feet Per Acre At an average of 3000 feet of tint her per acre for forest land in Ken tacky about 50 acres would have tc

at HomeThe Social Climber Teach a child selfcontrol remark ed the wise woman and you give it the key to success Every one can succeed at some one thing In this world The reason why most women fall Is because they have no perseverance and the reason they have o tt severance is because they have v If control They continually pitying them selves and giving in to themselves so that sustained work and energy on their part is impossible They always have to do what they feel like doing Unfortunately this state of mind does not fit in with the scheme of things in this world One cant begin too early training a child Even a tiny baby is capable of being reasoned with At an early age it shows whether It Is going to be a wise little man or woman or a little tyrant with an uncontrollable temper The good mother never humors her child She never helps her to pity her self She endeavors on the other hand to teach her to stand on her own feet and to keep her feelings well under control I have seen a child who because it rained on a picnic day made the entire house miserable It stood in front of the window bawling and exclaiming Oh dear as if that could help matters any And no wise parent saw that

Dividend E Lf Hancock in the Bookman has interviewed a nuiiber ofiCftce lance writers whose work is well known to editors of periodicals gull Sunday editors One of them is of peculiar interest to Winchester people as he is an old residenter and is known to all I send out and it is W 7 Lamp ton speaking a good many mote manuscripts than I wish I had to to make one end meat and the oth r bread Seriously speaking suppose I ship to various editors chiefly in New York county about 400 to SCO items yearly including prose enJ long bits and short ones I should say they average about five dollas each The smallest check I ever icr ceived was for 25 cents and the biggest 200 In all my experience cf say 20 years I have not failed me than a dozen times to receive pry for the work I did and the amount willnot exceed 100 Just what a free lancer receives pn an average for his labors I am not qualified to state definitely I know one man a hust rI sibestgave it up and became a report at about double what free lancing paid Another a magazine free lance has stated publicly that he made 0000 a year at it It depends larga ly upon the market where the goods are sold or rather the customer for whom they are made to order When a free lance merely lances and sells his stuff to any buyer taking all the risk himself and more apt to dis pose of it to newspapers than mag azines he usually takes guy price that may be offered On the other hand if he is the kind of free lance who delivers goods on order he us ually makes his own pricey or he knows what he will get before he begins the work Editors are always theyowant than for what the writer with the stuff in hand wants them to want thaneotherwise that is to say it iseasier to deliver the goods on order because in that way the writer has the subject suuplied which means that the most difficult part of the work is furnished him In other words the free lance who makes 6000 a year has less really hard work to perform than the man who makes 2000 besides the certainty of his market CIRCUIT COURT The February term of the Madison Circuit Court convened Tuesday morning with his honor Judge Ben ton on the bench and Common wealths
