15From New York to San Francisco on foot is the long tramp planned by Edward Pay faraouifat the New York poatofflce Today is Mr Westons seventieth birthday His age Is probably the most astonishing feature of his venture since tne walk from w York to the Pacific coast in the lime intwhich Mr Weston promises to do it Is one to tax severely the powers of a man halt his age He expects to cover the route more than 4000 miles long in 100 days excluding Sundays It is a matter of principle with Mr Weston never to walk on Sunday He devotes the day to meet and to delivering temperance tee tures The expenses of his triP are paid from the proceeds pftheiec tures Mr Weston first attracted the worlds attention as a pedestrian in 1867 when he walked from Portland Me to Chicago in 26 days In 1907 Mr Weston repeated that walk but bettered his record by 28 hours On his present trip Mr Weston will be accompanied by Journalists from various cities and an attendant and his manager This is probably the first and only attempt ever made to cross America t under surveillance during the entire trip said Mr Weston in talking of his venture and I intend to rreate a record for younger men to aim at in future years- I believe that I shall make this trip in even better time than the schedule In preparation for the event I have been walking 25 to 30 miles daily for the past several months COLLEGES

WESLEYAN uWinchester is peculiarly interested in Kentucky Wesleyan College This city contributed liberally to its es abr5hn there and responded nobly when the fire came The better part of 100OQO has been paid by Clark county citizens fr its upbuilding Many families send children to its halls When anything happens therefore which seems in any degree to injury its efficiency and its future webelieve we have a right to protest President Taylor has made for v himselfa place here and has raised the standard of the collcge immeasur abs During the last three years- iCentuckyWesleyanCollege has taken ajwell defined position among the in stitutions of learning in this State Beforethat time it was little better tliaiv a high school Now it ranks pith the best in its entrance rer quirements and in the curriculum pre eriteid to its students Clark Hall had only fifteen or eighten students three years ago niitsS c pncityisovertaxed and more students are asking for a place within its walls When all is said iiddone the test of success in any institution of learning is the num I ber itan attract to its halls True t iSiSnot the only test or even the most important But entrance ex aminations being equal the curricu lum the same the college that secures the larger attendance is found to rank above the smaller The last three years have been successful ones in the history of the instituti n There is a fine esprit de corps among its students All are proud tobe enteredon its books The State at large is beginning to take notice that there is such a college at Winchester And as the years roll on the workthat is being done now will tell more and more toward its prosperity and growth It seems a shame to us that the pitiable siim of 100 should stand be I thejpresidenb who has

No one who has met him who has heard him speak who has talked with the members of the faculty as sociated with him in his work can doubt that he is a big man intellectu ally He has shown his fcxecutivd ability in what he has done for the college in the last three years We sincerely trust that some way out of the tangle will be found The members of the Board of Education have the welfare of the college close to their hearts They are proud of their association with it and want to see it have a prosperous and glori ous future May they sink all individual pride of opinion and meet with

to Fool Away Time With Measures of rl fling Import Wants to Restore Cock and Bull Fights and Establish Government Lottery Havana March 15Whllethe first month in the life of the restored Cu ban republic has not been one of achievement it has at least not been marked by any untoward incident cal culated to confirm the oftrepeated prediction that the experiment of Cu ban selfgovernment was destined to speedy failure On the other hand the government of General Gomez hajk still to present assurances of its abil ity to direct wisely and firmly the des inles of the island The one fact which seems to be es tablished is that Cubans of all parties are for the time being determined to forget their political differences and pull together so as to avoid an long as possible what all dreadanother American intervention- At the close of the provisional gov ernment one of the most prominent American officials expressed the fear that the Gomez administration would collapse within three months but he added that if it survived that time it probably would endure indefinitely For this fear there now appears no warrant for apart from the mutter ings of displaced officeholders there is no evidence dissatisfaction with the new administration Only once has there been even the faintest rumor of an uprising This wasthred weeks ago when three dis charged officials in Santiago de Cuba were reported to have taken to the woods The rumor was untrue Thus far the new congress has done little and this is one of the most dis couraging features of the situation suggesting as it does a repetition of that inability to agree in legislative matters which produced the deadlock in the last Cuban congress compelled President Palma to legislate by decree in f the constitution and finally precipitated the uprisings in August 1906 which were followed by the intervention of the United States and the appointment of Mr T ftas provisional governor Should General Gomez find himself forced into the unhappy position of his predecessor it is most probable that he will not shrink from dealing with the malcontents with all the severity the occasion demands and nip any insurrectionary moVement in the bud A discouraging feature of the con gressional session has been the multi plicity of trivial measures introduced Among these were bills to rescind the military orders of the first interven tion against cockfights and bullfights to establish a national lottery to found orders of military merit the members of which may wear a deco ration in recognition of eminent services in war and to change the name of tie revenue cutter service to that of the Cuban navy The general amnesty bill which was signed by General Gomez a few days ago gave liberty to hundreds of convicts throughout the republic all but the perpetrators of the most atrocious crimes being included in its pro visions Another bill which was the subject of much discussion and misunder standing was that introduced by Con gressman Arteaga to restrain the fur ther acquisition of real estate by foreigners It was assumed that the purpose of the bill was to prohibit the ownership by aliens not only of real estate but of various other kinds of property and to compel the foreign owners of more than fourfifths ofthe sugar plantations of the island to accept Cuban citizenship or relinquish their estates but the bill served merely to place on record the patrI- otic aspirations of a few extremists for it was rejected AEROPLANE CHRISTENED New York Inventor Follows Ceremo nics Familiar at Ship Launching New York

Joseph Petrosino of the New York police department at Pal q ermo while he was securing evidence t1 against the Black Hand society at While the nature of the crime was such as to stir the hearts of all the people the officials have taken occa sion to point out that only the diplo matic and consular bodies are under the special protection of the govern went and that onlyin the event of a member of one or the other of these bodies being assassinated by an Ital ian in this country could the govern ment be held in a measure Iespon JsiblePetrosino did not come under this head but was in the same category as any American citizen abroad con templated in the treaty between Italy and the United States concluded Feb 26 1871 establishing that the sub jects of each country shall enjoy the same protection and security for their persons and property as natives The American ambassador has made further representations to the foreign office setting forth the imperative necesity for the protection of both Italians and Americans of bringing the assassins of Petrosino to justice The foreign office officials possiblowasment and promised that he should be kept Informed of all developments The general Inspector of police has already proceeded to Palermo to make atull investigation and the government in addition to leaving nothing untried to discover the crim inals has offered large rewards for their capture ITALIAN POLICE SLOW Have Failed to Report Petrosinos 1 Death to New York Officials Newt York March 15 Though there was an air of quiet activity at police headquarters nearly all of the chief officials having been there ana in conference no definite developments regarding the work of tracing the assassins of Lieutenant Joseph I Petrosino in Palermo Sicily were tIr announced There was a feeling of chagrin and even resentment over the fact that not one word regarding the murder of the noted New York detec tive had come from the Italian police despite the fact that a cable had been sent them asking certain infor I mation theicaustic remarks over the neglect on the part of the Italian police He said If an Itallandetective sent here 4ona mission by that government and working in behalf of the Italian po lice had been murdered in New York we would have notified the slain jinans home department at once So i far as the police of Italy are concerned we have not heard a word of Petrosinos death I cabled for infor mation but have received no answer from Palermo a The inspector said that he was particular to know whether Petrosino had been robbed after being shot He intimated that Petrosino had some papers valuaoie to the police here in running down Black Hand and Italian offenders The neglect of the Palermo police makes it impossible for the police here to know whether Petro sinohadpossessto-p mfllaln and whether or not the kssasslns secured them The in- speCtor I said that Petrosino had letters of instruction from the depart went here which If stolen by the f murderers would reveal to the Italian i criminals just what plans the police of New Yorkhave on foot JMANY ARRESTS MADE BicHian Police Round Up All Natives

came to Italy for the purpose also of protecting exPresident Roosevelt during the latters approaching visit It is even stated that Petrosino intended to accompany the expresident during his stay Here

J Cooper and John D Sharp for the killing of Former Sen ator E W Carmack centers in the charge of Judge Hart to the Jury and especially as to his probable defini tion of an overt act The state contends that Colonel Cooper when he turned around and sought Carmack that November after noon committed an overt act which taken in connection with the trans mitted threats would have justified JUDGE HART Carmack in killing Colonel Cooper on sight Early in the case Judge Hart apparently took the same view but Judge Anderson of the defense hotly combatted this contention and quoted voluminous decisions to the contrary It is significant that Judge Hart ask ed for memoranda of these decisions The other instructions upon which a verdict may hinge concern the law of selfdefense mental condition of the Coopers mental condition of the dead senator the effect of the threats and the credibility of witnesses Judge Anderson in discussing the case said We will get a verdict of acquittal within 30 minutes after the jury is discharged It is generally believed that a delay on the part of the jury in reporting will be taken as an unfavorable omen for the defense ODDS fAVOR HAYES AmerIcan
