will not be secretary of the treasury in the Taft cabinet This fact is set forth in the following statement written by Mr Taft after a lengthy conference with Mr Herrick At the Invitation of the president elect Mr Herrick called on Mr Taft and Mr Taft authorized the state ment that the mention of Mr Herrick for the portfolio of the treasury as if he had been a candidate did him great injustice because Mr Herrick wrote Mr Taft as early as December last to say that his business engage ments were such as to prevent his acceptance of a place In the cabinet Mr Herrick when questioned said that he had nothing to add to this statement which was made for the purpose of making the record com pleteThe elimination of Mr Herrick at his own request would seem to put Franklin McVeagh of

OF BIG GAME If The story below supposed to be the history of a mountaineers hunt for and killing an enemy is interest ing because the tale is laid in Win chester It is typical of the stories prevalent in Eastern magazines and newspapers which go so far to dis credit Kentucky It is taken from EverybodysMagazine for March Editor By NewsIA strain AmedIcanEurope a nation of mankillers Possibly the prevalence of homicide in this country is due in part to in adequate methods of capturing and punishing criminals But the real cause of lawlessness is deeper than this Perhaps as a nation we are not impatient enough with murderers The southcentral division of our States has in proportion to population the largest number of prisoners committed for homicide and yet there is probably no section of the coun try where mankilling is viewed with more calm and here punishment is so readily avoided In Kentucky tIis well known among public prose eutors that convictions for murder and manslaughter are difficult to se cure The fault is with the sentiment of juries and this sentiment mirrors the tendency of the community to be lenient with the mankiller During the terms of the last three Kentucky governors over one thou sand three hundred criminals have teen pardoned Four hundred and iiftynine of these had been found guilty of murder or manslaughter What then is the attitude of mind which in the middle of civilized America considers murder so lightly which looks upon manhunting as a part of lifes fair play The best manhunting in the world may be found in parts of the moun tain region of Eastern Kentucky the sportsman in this country may feel inclined at first to believe that the district has been well shot out but though this is in a measure true nevertheless an eager hunter may iind along the course of the yellow Kentucky River arid in the nUighbor ihood of the lumber camps and moon shine distilleries an excellent oppor tunity Ifp bag his quarry To those who can overcome the prejudices that stand in the way of killing their own species and accept the viewpoint of the native manhunter plenty of good shooting is still available If by good sport is meant the taking of animal life under circumstances which provide an opportunity for roughing it in a rather wild and beau tiful country with the attendant enjoyment of the fresh highland air =and the panorama of forests moun tain streams and rough crags together with the chance to take some personal risks then here the pursuit of the biggest game finds its ideal surroundings As to the hazards of the sport it is true that even in this region the law provides no ppen season for mankilling and furthermore the instinct selfpreservation the skill in selfdefense by means of ex plosive weapons and the general intelligence f the game itself are such as to make it a considerable questions to whether the sportsman will get Us man or the man his sportsman 101 the law both To write upon the subject of hunting the biggest of the big game one should perhaps be qualified by per tonal experience particularly in these ilays when one who so writes is more than usually open to the charge of being a humannature faker It is therefore with awkward embarrass went that the author confesses that lie has never shot a man in his life 3ffc can ronly telfcof the sport by reciting a narrative of the chase as set forth by one Newt Pound a native sportsman who sitting on a fence near the railroad station at Winches ter Kentucky swung his heels through the dcwy grasstops rolled cigarette after cigarette with his long bony fingers squinted quizzically at the starry heavens and drawled out the tale of his greatest hunt The Region of Sudden Death From behind us came the sdunds of Saturday night hilarity in Bucktown that section of Winchester once trod Ijy the feet of Daniel Boone and now n given over to a swarming population I of blacks Newt gazed thoughtfully this shoulder and back along the road where at an intersection of net gro thoroughfares g orf men and women white pf teeth tnd eyeballs moved in and out of the lights from the little store windows I could see the shadows on his collarless and clwde neck showing 5n

peculiar riRiontheregion of Sudden Death to understand Newt sne must understand thevj soil dn i which he grcpr idt The feud days of Eastern Kentucky are almost at anend Every one knows it Newt among the others Time was when the interfamily quar rel was common enough when real vendettas lent a romantic charm to to existence in Lee and Breathitt and the surrounding counties It began so Newt said when three regiments were recruited from Breathitt county in J61 Two of them were enlisted in foughtIwithtween the first two and the third were almost amicable as compared with those that existed between the two that fought on the same side The two Federal regiments apparently endeavored to exterminate each other Then upon the return of these moun tain soldiers when the war was over there were several old scores to set tie The settling was transacted in a neighborly way and gradually it became proper when ones relative had been put under a Hie jacet to take down ones shotgun peep through the barrel to see if it needed oil and then go over the mountain through the gap to even up matters in by shooting the son of the man who had shot the father of whom you were the son The region therefore eve today when feuds no longer thrive and political murders hired assassins and a corrupted criminal law have resulted in such disgraces as are exemplified in the recent his tory of Breathitt still has inherited traits which produce the skilled marksman the ambushed lie inait the nervous triggerfinger the power if of hate the cool nonchalant disre gard of human life the keenness of a sporting spirit andwithal the most adept mankillers in the world Newt confessed with shameless pride that even in this class he had a of high standingDLike mark of the bad men of the region he traces an ancestry of puret AngloSaxon strain back to very tocratic Virginia forbears in truth the locality that raised him is as thoroughly American as any corner of the United States It is so com pletely American that it exhibits the beginnings of a return to the mal tyne In certain regions abQrigj Kentucky mountains the man has begun to assume the characteristics of the native savage a A White Savage The lithe bony frame the sieved limbs the straight black hair the high cheekbones the stoicism the tendency to laziness the peculiar and rigidbut curiously limited codct of hon I or the alert animal senses ofsight hearing and smell and the sneaking cunning used to trap the enemy all are suggestive of the North American Indian Were this region tore main isolated forit few centuries longer it might givo the anthropologists something to think about Newt Pound is a sample of the phenome non He leas let it be understood never served a day in the penitentiary for his peculiarities and it is question able whether there is enough evidence against him to convict him in a court of law for breaking those particular game laws that prohibit mankilling But it is commonly supposed that hethas a right to cut more than one Inotchon his revolver which he af fectionately refers to as she and therefore his lawyer who is some thing ofa scalawag but who was land enough to arrange the interview with him suggested that in writing his memoirs of the chase his name be concealedcertainly in realI the author planned at some day to return t6 that part Ken tucky It Newt himself turning back from his contemplation of Bucktown de manded my promise that I would call him by some other name than his owns and that iiii writing of his purI suit of Kelly Barker so called here in even the names of places be changed Ive spent a lot of time doin this thing right he explained and I dont want no mistakes A wistful expression came into his face One felt that he was wishing that the

with one car ridge An ef yo dont you mought get shot at or seen by the feljer an hed tell the sheriff on yer As for- evolvers they are safest because they do not tempt longrange shots are easier to

mosquito and then explained that to get near a man who was on the lookout for difficulties was a very troublesome problem When snow is on the ground one cannot go stalking game without leaving tracks and as Kelly Barker would be sure to see them it gave rise to the necessity for planning a strategy which could not very well fail The surest way under the circumstances said NewtI was to be certain that the game was in its lair and then to coax it not I give this a heap o study he assertedan by and by Igot a scheme Spppose a feller should go up to Whiskbroom Fork some night when Kellys man Hays was down in town carousin Kelly would be in bed sartahr Then suppose a fellerd get into Kellys barn an take out one of his mules an walk him around lively some and then kick at the sides of the stalls

shot he says Hit mought be the feller that did tho shootih waited to hear somebody say Is he dead 7 Then the feller that had come in says kinder soft Sure hefs dead Newt jumped off the fence He stood there on the road pulling at his long nose with his bony fingers fI wjsht I could tell yer some more brother he said drawling his words Ho waS so goodnatured so kind hearted He seemed far from being a criminal It was almost impossible to believe that a young man of his type could look upon murder with so much equanimity Had something in his training had the killing region in which he lived given him immunity from conscinece Were he and his birthplace inexplicable phenomena in a civilized country Did he really look upon manhunting as a true sportYes said he in answer I reckon I enjoyed goin after Kelly Hit a heap- more excitin than anythin else You cant never tell whether youll get him or whether hell get you or perhaps youll get ketched at it Thar aint a minute when you can lose sight of whar he is You called it huntin brother and while hit lasts thar aint nothin like it Where the Fun Ends He had emphasized while hit lasts and now if reflecting upou the accomplished deed his face grew cunning and viciously shrewd But I was glad it was another feller an not me that killed Kelly he addckl A moment later he met the sugges tion of remorse that follows the bringing down of the game with sin cere contempt You dont seem to understand brother he protested that hit is necessary sometimes to killa man There aint nothin bad ill doin what has to be did But then why are you glad as you say that somebody else did it Newt hitched up his corduroy trousers found a pocketknife in them and whittled the fence rail Say he began when I was a boy I rdmember the first time I went hunt in with my uncle Curt Id never had a gun in my hands before We was after birds but uncle Curt seen a squirrel sittin on a pine limb We wbnt git nothin less we kill some thin else first he says Shoot at the

I knew he said thme huntin after younr don the killin And saying this he turned a little white it seemed The insects in the long grass con tinned their pulsing chorus but Newt strode along towards the

at 15000000 and who lives like a grand seigneur of the olden days in the feudal castle on the top of a plateau innorthern Italy Louis Lombard the FrancoAmerican musician composer author and financier who won a for tune from Wall street and then sailed away is carrying put the most remark able and at the time time democratic system of education for his eight chil dren that is being practiced in the world today Mr Lombard is staying for a few weeks at the WaldorfAstoria having brought his eldest son and two daughters over to complete their education in this their fathers adoptedJand and he is one of the most interestin personalities this country has even had a Hand in producing Although French by birth he came to the United States penniless at the prodsproud to say so It is due to his struggles as a boy violinist as a leader of orchestras in the law and last in finance that he became the man he is todaya philanthropist philosopher a worker for the common good of humanity as well as one of the highest men on they continent Mr Lombard married an American j oman the daughter of Thomas Alleny who built the Missouri Pacific railroad and they have eight children and not withstanding his luxurious mode of life he is bringing the eight young Lombards up to expect nothing from him or from the world that they do not earn As his children show their ability to earn and save money so in that proportion will he give or leave them money This principle he has hound ed into them from infancy From the time they are able to talk he gives them money for the services they ren der to their mother and to him to the little ones pennies and increasing amounts as they grow older and their services become more valuable To teach them the value of money he fines them when they are naughty a regular scale of fines and this he says is a thousand times more bene punishMr Lombard scoffs at the higher education of most women in so far as y at pretends to make them mans equal Intellectually He has dealt with this subject in an emphatic manner in one- Jot his early books The Observations of a Bachelor His girls are brought Tip with the principal object of making them good wives and mothers They are taught the languages the classics but they are also taught how to con duct a household in every detail Mr Lombard does not believe in placing a book in the hands of a child before the age of six or seven Of course this age limit varies with each Individual Little girls he considers are more precpcious than boys there fore he starts them at their studies as- a rule a year earlier He has his children begin the prac tire of languages almost from the cra dle Every one of them with the ex- cePtion of the twoyearold Zuleika sp aks four or five languages HILLSIDE SINKS INTO EARTH FlftyYearsof Internal Mine Fire Cre ates a Vacuum Tam qua Pa Summit Hill has been visited by the largest cavein in the history of anthracite coal mining when an entire mountain side for a a distance of 500 feet sank to a depth of over fifty feet into the coal workings devastated for the past 50 years by the celebrated burning mine fire The presumption is that at the point where the fall occurred the fire had eaten out all the coal Aroused by the noise people rushed from their homes fearing an earthquake only to be driven to shelter again by the sulphur fumes The fall occurred within a stones throw of the residential section and thousands of people are visiting the scene These underground workings are owned by the Lehigh jCoal Naviga tion Company and the cavein will prevent the work of extinguishing the lire at this point from being carried on forsome time as all the bore holes are now filled with debris Mink Farm in Oregon Klamath OreTom Staten has established a farm for the

FOREST New Proclamation Sets Over 600000 Acres in Nevada Asid- eWashingtonThe president has just signed a proclamation adding 600135 acres to the Humboldt National forest In the northern part of Elko county Nevada bordering on the Idaho line This area contains a large amount of pine fir and aspen timber estimated at 64000000 linear feet This timber although not all available at present is practically all accessible and can be handled by employing modern methods of logging This addition gives the forest a total area of 1158818 acresThis recent addition to the Hum boldt National forest covers a region of vital importance from a watershed standpoint since many important streams upon which extensive irriga tion projects are dependent have their source in the forest Mining is also an important industry of the region and promises great development ini the future Already a number of stamp mills have been established These mills are also dependent upon the streams of the region and the fu ture welfare of the industry is almost entirely dependent upon a cheap and nearby supply of timber for fuel and mine props Stock raising is another important develjopedtain districts to the various stockown ers and thus avoiding unnecessary trampling out of the grass The recent addition to the Humboldt forest has had the hearty support of practi cally all the local residents who have submitted various petitions and letters requesting that the additions be cre ated SANCTUARY FOR DRUNKARDS New Zealand Soaks Have Island Refuge Where Sobriety Is Sure Auckland New Zealand Drunk ards

being a jealous creature and in history are recorded numerous cases where this element has had its influence in building up and tearing down nations In the av erage rural town among the little evils noticed Is that often merchants wives do not consider the wives of the farmers their equals sooially or other wiseOne woman in a town can cast the stigma of snobbishness upon quite a few others who are known as her associates and sometimes to the det riment of the place It may be that wives of merchants dress better than do the wives and daughters of farm ers Possibly the children of the town tradesman may wear better clothes Envy is a knife that cuts deep and perhaps without apparent reason some woman concludes that the wife of a certain merchant thinks herself better than the wives of the people who give her husband a means of living It is the women of the farm household who have the greatest in fluence in the matter of buying A word from the wife will often turn trade from the usual channel and this word may be caused by the atti tude of the merchants wife who through some neglect or discourtesy unfavorably impresses the wife of the farmer There is nothing like a friendly feeling as a trade stimulator If the wife of the merchant would only cultivate more closely the ac quaintance and tile friendship of the women residing in the farming dis tricts which give the town support it would work wonders in the way of bringing additional trade to the town Snobbishness never pays The sturdy women who reside on farms are quite often the superiors of those who reside in the towns and are perhaps the wives of the merchants The boys and girls reared on The farm average well with those of the towns These facts should be realized Petty jeal ousies should be done away with when they exist between the people who reside in the towns and those who reside in the country It is best for the community The Country Editor If conscientious effort and merit mean anything there is no good rea son why the country editor should not expect to wear a golden crown and a diamondstudded harp in the good world to come His sphere is surely one in which his usefulness is limited only by his ability to work It may be a debatable question wheth er the average editor of a small town paper does more for the town than the town does for the editor It may be true that one of the greatest sins that can be laid at his door is that of povertynot poverty of brain but of pocket He may labor for the enlightenment of an unappreciative people but is there not compensation in knowing that a duty is faithfully per formed His efforts to boom the town may not always meet with an encour aging response in the way of good advertising patronage from the local business interests His work of showing up his town as a live and progressive place sometimes falls flat because of a lack of good snappy ad vertising of the stores There are few things that are a better criterion of the life of a place than the advertising pages of the local paper By it a stranger is impressed either favorably or otherwise If the paper is bright advertisingthereIs progressive the merchants prosper ous and that the people are of the class that make excellent neighbors On the other hand if there are only a few lines of local news half a dozen small cards and announcements and a few large advertisements of depart ment stores and mail order houses in other cities the impression is given goodplacekind of place where one would care Ita build a home D M CARR By the hurricane Route Hes long wanted to leave

Once upon a time there was a beautiful maid with the daintiest feet in all the world She went to a party and danced with the prince and when she would leave the palace she went so hurriedly that her slipper was lost The prince in pur suing her found the glassbut the members of the Philological society of the University of Michigan take up the thread of the narrative here and dispute that she lost a glass slipper They insist that the slipper she lost was furlined As the story of the French bards was handed down from generation to generation they say the word vair was corrupted to verre Thus it is that we wrongly believe the slipper to be glass instead of fur And this rude awakening is due to a meeting of the Philological society raivoriteLincolns Head for a Coin WashingtonPresident

suggestions have been made in the last decade or two look jng toward that end As the English constitution stands slow the House of Lords not chosen Ijj the people or representative of them in any way can nullify any act howofstrong the popular demand may be the House of Lords can throw any bill out There is no redress for such act It ls true that sometimes a strongly entrenched Prince Minister by threaten to create new Lords can force action against the wishes of the up- Per house But so strong is the feeling in Great Britain against the making of new noblemen by wholesale that such course would only be tol crated in the last extremity Again if a certain measure unpalatable oithe upper house is passed by suc cessive Parliaments the Lords us Wally yield and allow the bill to become a law- Several t suggestions have recently been made The most radical is the absolute abolition of the upper house Ebis would leave the British Empire governed by a single chamber the popular one with no check on its action at all Another is the limiting of the number in the upper house and the election by the English and Scotch aristocracy of representa tives This is how the Irish nobility are now represented in that chamber The latest is a proposal to restrict fhepowerof the House of Lords to- withinalter or reject bills so that lthe limit ofa single Parliament the will of the Commons should prevail When it is remembered that the life j of a House of Commons is seven years provided the majority support the dominant ministry the last pro posal does notseem so very revolu tionary And particularly is this so acs customed to see the Senate thwart the popular will as expressed in the House of Representatives for many jeiurs or until the constituent parts of that body can be changed But the whole life of the Lords is an the balance In answer to the lot est suggestion which wasvpostpqned 5m the Commons this week Prime ijyGnister Asquith promised that at the earliest possible moment consist ant with Parliaments discharge of its 1rirrent obligations the questions of We Lords prerogatives would be r submitted to the country In other words 1a popular election would b g lield for a new House of Commons and the main issue submitted would be the existence or the restriction of the poer of the House of Lords It is possible therefore that within the next two or three years we may see the British Empire controlled by avsinglu legislative body and the time honored and historic house of peers swept out of existence A CONSTITUTION INRUSSIA The promise of constitutional government in Russia seems as yet to be little more thanin name Qn Mon day Emperor Nicholas issued a re script dissolving the Finnish Diet and ordering the holding ofnew elections May 1 for the new Diet to assemble pine The step is due to tueJ criticism of the Emperors policy in President- sSuiulruunds response to the speech from the throne at the opening of the Diet The body had been cau tioned beforehand to avoid conten tious topics in its reply nevertheless the President raised the question of the recent established control of Finnish pi legislation by the Russian Cabinet and declared the action of Em peror Nicholas was unconstitutional and an infringement on the rights of FinlandJThe reply of the throne was a dis solution of the Diet But the new election in spite of the limitations on the suffrage provided by the Russian government will return a large number oty antiRussian representatives and the agitation for free and un tramelled discussion will go on The mistake made by the Russian Emperor and his Cabinet if they wanted to maintain unbrokefti the power of the autocrcay was in ever allowing the maintainance of a diet in Finland or the establishment of the Douna in Russia proper The Einoeror can hardly recall his action and sweep these bodies out of existence without causing bloodshed and perhaps civil war So long as they exist some representatives of the people are bound to be found in each body and they will be beard at all times in favor of popular rights And the more such questions are agitated the soonerlwill1 come the day when real constitutional government

Business to Higher Plane Columbus 0 Feb 24The senate by unanimous vote passed the Dean bill intended to elevate the character of men engaged in the saloon busi ness The temperance forces with held their support of this measure because of a desire to have the other Dean bill which carried an amendment to the Rose county option meas ure killed The fact that the vote was unanimous however was a sur prise It embraces a number of ques tions which assessors are to ask the saloon keepers and in the event that affirmative answers are given the saloon keepers are subject to punish ment by fine of from 200 to 1000 and imprisonment from six months to two years or both and their places are to be abated The list of questions would exclude from the saloon business unnatural ized residents persons convicted of felonies those who within a year have permitted gambling visits by improper females unlawful sales to minors or habitual drunkards If such saloon keepers reengage in the bust ness they are subject to the same penalties as are provided for original offenses On petition of five qnalifh d electors who alleged that a saloon is conducted in a disorderly manner the city solicitor or

Ilong i r r l Systems of CoOperation Weak Theoretically and in Practice One of the spirits of the age is organization and cooperation of those who are engaged in the same lines of trade Industry or profession It has been proved beyond cavil that men have a right to thus organize and pursue any system in business or In their special fields that they desire as long as their methods are not unjust toward others From many organizations comes much good From others things that are harmful It must be remembered that there are fundamentals in all systems that cannot be Ignored There are principles which must be observed or failure will be sure to result Within the past dozen years numerous alleged cooperative organizations have been formed within the United States These organizations have been of a kind that involves certain benefits to membersthe elimination of profits to middlemen the distribution of earnings to members etc Not one In fifty of these organizations has been successful and the reason for failure is that the systems followed were not in harmony with economic laws In the world of commerce there are three Important factors production distribution and consumption Were there no consumption there would be no need of production or distribution But civilized people must be fed and clothed and their other wants supplied and as long as intelligent man exists there will be need and methods to supply his wants Thus we find the producers the distributors and the latter class divide into groups known as factors or jobbers their agents and the socalled retailers who directly supply the consumers The common cooperative plans deal with cutting out the distributors the elimination of that cost in products which represents the compensation of merchants whether they be wholesalers or retailers The present sys fromIpIes of economy The system cannot well be changed unless the whole field of human endeavor be modified Peo pie must be employed in gainful occu potions or they become burdens upon- the classes who are earners All cannot be producers but all can perform an important part in production in manufacture and in distribution The cooperative system that means the elimination of the factors in commerce excepting the manufacturer means the robbing of a large class of a means of earning subsistence and an encroachment upon other fields of labor that are now well equalized The present system of distribution Is the most economical that can be devised No manufacturer of food products unless he nave a monopoly can maintain exclusive distributing warehouses Thus we find the jobber- a cooperator merely working in harmony with a multitude of manu facturers and for them conducting a general warehouse guaranteeing the collection and payment of bills due them and for his services receiving a small commission His agentor trav eler sells a hundred kinds of goods instead of one particular kind Here again we find cooperation in its high est type The retailer carries a variety of goods representative of per baps 200 or 300 manufacturers here again is cooperation and It may be said that the earnings of all engaged In distribution represent a small commission for performing a service and the aggregate of the earnings of anyone of themthe jobber his agent and the retaileris dependent upon his labor and his business sagac ity When these three factors in dis tribution be cut out just as expensive a system must be substituted In case of the manufacturer who sells his products direct to the consumer he has large advertising bills to pay and a hundred little expenses which the manufacturer who sells his products through regular established channels does not have to bear When a cooperative store Is established with a few hundred stockholders as its patrons it is generally found that it cannot be operated at lower expense than If conducted by an indi vidual and it soon ceases to exist Editor Realizes Situation thebusinessmail order concerns They are continually growing larger and taking more tradeout of the smaller towns Of course we all know that it is not right for Wilkinsburg people to send their money to Chicago or New York or other places for their groceries dry goods etc when we have people neighbors and friends selling the same goods right at home The local merchant has no one to blame but himself for the condition which now exists This may be a little hard but It is true Many of the local merchants do not let their old customers and prospective new ones know of the articles they keep by advertising them The mall order houses are the largest and most successful advertis ers In the world and without adver fining they could db no business Now If they can afford to spend hundreds keepthetrnew ones the local
