The killing of the county unit bill DFH1UIAIU 

in the Senate and the failure to pass uLlllllUIl 

a redistricting bill, or even to consider 
either, has caused a renewal of the 

talk of an extra session and it was ja DU UUl fl 111 I fllllOl/ll I E 
stated on reliable authority that Gov. ||J Ht UtLU 111 LUuIuVILLl 
Willson will call an extra session to 
consider four subjects. These four 

subjects are the county unit bill, a re- q F THE SURVIVORS OF KEN- 
districting bill, bi-partisan boards for 
the control of the State penal and 
charitable institutions and some meas- 
ures to relieve the tobacco troubles, 
which have caused the Governor so 
much anxiety. It is said that the 
Governor has made up his mind finally 
that the State must have a redistrict- 
ing bill, in accordance with the decis- 
ion of the Court of Appeals which 
knocked out the last bill that was 
passed by the Legislature and also 
that something must be done to stop 
the raids by night riders. The talk 
of an extra session is all that one 
hears now as the big things which 
occupied the attention of the public 
during the weeks which have passed 
have all been settled one way or the 

Gov. Willson is known to be disap- 
pointed in the Legislature and is said 
to have expected the two bodies to 
pass a redistricting bill, although it is 
hardly believed that he expected the 
passage of the bill which was drawn 
by the Republicans and which would 
have put the Republicans* in control 
in the State. In order to get a redis- 
tricting bill it is said to be practically 
certain that he will call an extra ses- 
sion and that he will include in the 
call, as a part of the business which is 
to be considered, the county unit bill. 

Gov. Willson has not talked regarding 
his intentions on the subject of an 
extra session but his close friends say 
that it is practically a certainty that 
he will issue the call. The extra ses- 
sion may not be held Immediately fol- 
lowing the presnt session but it may 
be several weeks before the call is is- 

The Anti-Saloon League, which is a 
power in Kentucky as well as other 
States, is said to have already decided 
that in case this session ends without 
the passage .of the county unit bill, 
petitions asking an extra session will 
be sent to the Governor from every 
precinct in the State and will make 
things so strong that he will be prac- 
tically forced to call the extra ses- 
sion. This plan is said to have been 
fully decided on and will be put into 
execution at once. Franfort is much 
interested in all this talk and many 
would like to see the Legislature come 
back for an extra session. 

A prominent Republican member of 
the Legislature said he is confident 
Gov. Willson expects to call an extra 
session. He said that while the Gov- 
ernor did not say it in so many words 
he asked questions the purport of 
which showed that he is at least con- 
sidering the matter very carefully. 

The House yesterday morning pass- 
ed the Sullivan educational bill, 
which changes the whole system of 
school trustees and establishes a high 
school in everj r county in the State. 
There was some opposition to the bVl 
and the debate was long, many speech- 
es being made for and against it. The 
bill provides that the county Bball be 
the governing unit in school matters 
and that a tax of not to exceed 20 cents 
shall be levied for school purposes in 
each county.

the Senate adopted a ruie requiring 
a two-thirds vote to call any bill from

rule was adopted as a result of an 
agreement between the Democrats and 
Republicans who thought it would be 
better to have one committee in com- 
plete control rather than have a gene- 
ral scramble for the passage of their 
pet measures, by all the members of 
the Senate. The rules committee is 
opposed to the passage of the county

Entertained Tuesday Evening By 
Members Of The Legislature At 
Capital Hotel. 

One of the gaye3t and most enjoy- 
able social events of the General As- 
sembly session was the dance and re- 
ception given at the Capital Hotel 
Tuesday evening by the memlfers of 
the Legislature in honor of Senator- 
elect W. O. Bradley and his daughter, 
Mrs. John G. South. The grand 
march was led by Gov. Bradley and 
Mrs. W. H. Cox, wife of the Lieuten- 
ant Governor. 

Among the informal features were 
banjo playing by Representative 
Henry Denham, of the Metcalfe-Mon- 
roe district, who also called the figu- 
res for the quadrilles. Representa- 
tive “Windy Bill” Thompson, of Spen- 
cer county, showed himself quite 
handy with his feet and danced a 
genuine old-fashioned "breakdown” 
for the edification of the large assem- 
blage. The afTair was made a society 
event and many handsome costumes 
were in evidence. A number of guests 
were present from Louisville and 
^exington and many other points in 
Central Kentucky. 




A county board of edu- 
cation, which shall consist of not less 
than four nor more than eight mem- 
bers, with the county school superin- 
tendent. as a member ex-officio. This 
board is to be selected by the election 
of one school trustee in each school 
district and the trustees of these dis- 
tricts to compose a division board of 
education in each educational division 
of the county, of which there shall be 
not less than four nor more than eight 
The teachers are to be selected by the 
division boards and each trustee is re- 
quired to look after the needs of the 
schools in their districts. The main 
feature of the bill, aside from the al- 
teration in the methods of managing 
schools, is that each county in the 
State shall have a high school. The 
bill now goes to the Senate and is 
practically certain to pass there, both 
th« and Republicans favor- 

ing it. 

In the Senate to-day an important 
local option measure was passed. 
This provides that no distiller shall 
sell intoxicating liquor in any local 
option district except to a licensed 
wholesale or retail dealer. Tlfls will 
do away with the present plan of small 
distilleries selling whisky in five gal- 
lon lots to anybody who may apply. 
Senator McNutt’s bill creating the of- 
fice of assistant jail physician in 
Lo.uisville was passed by a unani- 
mous vote. The county unit bill came 
up again this morning in the Senate 
when the House bill, which has pass- 
ed, was read and referred to a com- 
mittee. On motion of Senator Rives 
the bill was referred to the Kentucky 
Statutes Committee. Thia does not 
affect the bill, however, as the Rules 
Committee is in complete charge and 
the bill can be called up only on mot- 
ion of the Rules committee. 

The Senate passed the Crecllius bill 
providing a penalty for selling or buy- 
ing pooled tobacco, after it had been i 
amended so as to provide that the 
penalty should be inflicted only where 
a person knowingly buy* such pooled 
tobacco. Other bills were passed and 
the Senate disposed of a great deal 
of business. 

Much business of importance was 
transacted by the House and Senate 
yesterday and the two bodies are now 
getting down to work with the pros- 
pect that all the bills which need at- 
tention will be disposed of before the 
session adjourns. There remains of 
the session only nine days, but in that 
time a great deal of business can be 
transacted and the session will end 
with a great deal accomplished, es- 
pecially for the cause of education.

who has been fighting for the bill, made 
his usual motion that the rules be 
suspended and the bill taken from the 
committe and put on its passage. 
Senator Charlton moved to lay this 
motion on the table. The motion to

17, the chair not voting, but declaring 
the motion lost because it did not pre-

voted against taking the bill from the 
committee. The motion was lost, the 
vote being 18 to 16. The county unit 
opponents thought their time had 
come and were badly frightened, but 
that night things were done .and the 
bill was laid away without funeral ser- 
vices on the day following. 

Next to the county unit bill the Mc- 
Chord bill has aroused most interest,, 
and the fate of this bill, under the new 
rule in the Senate, is problematic. It 
is said that the rules committee is 
against the bill and that the support- 
ers of it can not muster the necessary 
two-thirds to get it out of the hands of 
that committee, but the supporters 
of the measure say that It will be pass- 
ed and it then will be up to the Gov- 
ernor whether or not it shall be- 
come a law. The McChord hill,

The March assignment of store- 
keepers and gaugers In the Seventh 
Internal Revenue District shows in- 
creased activity In the distilling in- 
dustry, although it Is still far below 
the average for this season of the 
year. Four deaths In the service 
within a few months and the illness 
of several others have made neces- 
sary a number of appointments of 
temporary men from the civil service 
eligible list, mostly for brief periods. 
Selection for these emergency ap- 
pointments are made as a rule from 
the men on the list living nearest to 
the distilleries where extra men are 
needed, as the terms of servic are 
mostly not long enough to Justify long 
trips and traveling expenses. The 
eligible llBt is the longest the district 
has ever had, 42 names in all, and 
the outlook is that but a small pro- 
portion of the eligibles will be needed, 
at least for anything more than scat- 
tered periods of a few dayB now and

It» Origin And How It la And' (Has 
Been Celebrated. 

There is anjy room for smiles and 
jests in New Orleans when Mardi 
Gras rolls around each year and the 
I day is celebrated with wonted enthu- 
siasm, preparations being made seve- 
ral months before the climax comes, 
when the old city Is unveiled in all 
of its gay attire and such a thing as 
business Is forgotten for th* time. 
The word carnival is derived from the 
Italia, composed of two words, carno 
and ‘vale, which means farewell to 
meat Mardl -Gras is derived from the 
French and means fat Tuesday; .Mardi 
being the word for Tuesday and Gras 
the word Star fat. 

Dating hack to the time of Teles- 
phorus, Bishop of Rome in the second 
century, the festive date was accord- 
ingly devised. The season of Lent, or 
forty days’ fasting, had already been 
instituted. In Rome the inhabitants 
held a series of public dinners, the 
city was lighted with torches and the 
vineyards, like those which tarnished 
Inspiration to Omar Khayyam for bis 
immortal verses, were well filled with 
guests. The next city which caught 
the flavor of the celebration was 
Paris, and year after year th® Paris- 
ians had thair carnival. Masking be- 
came the fashion and the city swarm- 
ed with mem and women in fanctful 
costumes. After the new world was 
discovered and New Orleans sprang 
into existence that city caught the in- 
spiration from ±he gay Parisians and 
early In the eighteenth cenutry Mardi ! 
Gras, or Shove Tuesday, was observ- 
ed as gala day. Feasts were given 
and the day wound up with a bail-- 
grand ball. 

Tbe first real procession made its 
appearance on the streets when the \

Northeastern and Lake States are 
tamrack, hemlock, beech, birch, and 
maple, and the red and black oaks, all 
of which by proper treatment may 
help to replace the fast diminishing 
white oak and cedar. In the States 
of the Mississippi Valley the pressing

lieved by treating such species as cot-

Circular 139 of the Forest Service,

casion to say a wongBas to the future 
policy of the Franl^B News, as the 
paper shall herealte^^^ known. 

While the new management feels a 
pardonable pride In the changes that 
have already been effected, It is by 
no means the paper that we intend to 
make It in a few weeks. Naturally 
there is a great deal work incident to 
the transfer of -a large business, and 
as yet we have not organized our 
editorial staff. The volume of work 
that has been turned oub by the 
Frankfort Printing Company since 
the transier of he property has kept 
the present force busy dty and night, 
but the foice will be enlarged at the 
earliest date possible and we hope 
then to show out patrons that a first- 
class paper can be published and 
maintained In Frankfort. 

It shall be the policy of this paper 
to give the news of the day as it is. 
The happenings of the day will not 
be colored to please or to injure any 
man, or set of men, but it will oe writ- 
ten without bias.' The editorial ool- 
vmi of the paper will be used to ad- 
vance the interests of Frankfort and 
the State, and they will not be given 
over to “doubtful disputations” 'con- 
cernlng matters of personal grievances 
or unjust criticisms. We believe the

on a farm. By Industrie^ and 

economy in a few years . laid 

by enough money to buy farm. 

This he worked for all ^HBvas in 
It, and it was only x few^^Wt years 
until he had it paid for Rid a sur- 
plus or cash on hand, and selling 
this small farm he was able to buy

now tallies with the uniden- 

tified which would Indlrarce l hat all of 
the bodies have been found and that 
the total death list will stand at one 
hundred and sixty-seven. 

In fully one hundred cases the fune- 
rals will be individual, each family 
burying Its own dead. The first of 
these funerals were held yesterday 
morning and continued throughout 

Republican members of the General 
Assembly and some of the State of- 
ficials have organized the Hughes 
League of Kentucky, and hope to have 
Kentucky’s delegation to the National 
Convention instructed either for 
Hughes first or second. If the fight 
between Taft and Fairbanks gets any 
and the Hughes men say that ^botti 
sides could agree on Hughes delegates 
from this State. If either a Tart or 
a Fairbanks delegation goes from Ken- 
hotter something will have to be done 
tucky it b believed that this delega- 
tion will be composed of men who 
favor Hughes as second choice. 

The Hughes movement in Kentucky 
Is getting to amount to something and 
the sentiment Is becoming general 
that he will be the nominee on whom 
the anti-Taft men will agree. Many 
of the leading Republican politicians 
who come to Franfort are really for 
Hughes, and say that ho will be the 
man who can beat Bryan. They are 
for Taft or Fairbanks or some other 
man' but all have a good word to say 
for the Governor of New York, and 
those who favor Fairbanks say $hat 
they may hace to unite on Hughes to 
beat Taft. 

Mr. Humphreys, general manager of 
the Hughes boom, was in Frankfort 
Wednesday and organized the Hughes 
Club, which will be spread over the 
entire State and will not be confined 
to only one city or county. Thomas 
B. McGregor was elected president of 
the league, Roy Wilhoit secretary and 
trea3urer, arid T. F. Vinson, vice 
president. John P. Haswell, R. A. 
Cook, W. E. Bidwell, D. B. Cornett 
and Sawyer A. Smith were appointed 
as the executive committee. 

Gen. Stew'art L. Woodford, presi- 
dent of the Hughes League of the 
United States, Is expected in Ken- 
tucky the coming week, and will 
make several addresses. A strong or- 
ganization is on foot in Louisville for 
Hughes, and with the organization of 
the Kentucky League it will probably 
mean the inception of a Hughes boom 
In Kentucky which will result In a 
tide hard to stem.

secretary of the Board of Wors: 

“I am glad the administration dis- 
charged me, and feel lie sending the

In the City Hall I would have been a£

Rooney says he would rather live In 
Kentucky than any place on earth, hut 
that Oklahoma Is the State In which to 
mae money. After he gets a million

back Her and start a distillery and

Says So Called “Luck” Has Nothing 
To Do With Maing Or Unmaking 
Mans Fortune. 

The Louisville Times in its column 
“All Around The Town,” has the fol- 
lowing item which will be of interest 
to Mike Rooney’s many friends in 

There are those who contend that 
so-called "luclf” has nothing to do 
with making or unmaking a man’s 
fortune. Such is not the belief of 
“Mike” Rooney, formerly of Louisville 
and Frankfort. Rooney was Inspector 
of Drains, in the employ of the city,

of last year. Total receipts last week 
were 4.504 hogsheads against 3,168

The market has not been so satis-

developed There was an uunder- 
rent indicating an easier feeling on 
the red type of Burley, except perhaps 
on the medium grades. Good and fine 
leaf was several bids lower, while 
trash and very common lugs were a 
trifle easier. The medium grades 
seemed to hold their own fairly well. 
Colory types were In limited supply 
and met with strong competition. 
Prices on this were fairly well main-

than usual for a Friday, the aggregate 
at all the warehouses being 1,028 hogs- 
heads— 861 Burley and 177 dark. 
There was a large attendance of buy- 
ers, growers and dealers. The quality 
of the offerings was good and sales 
figures were generally acceptable to 
shippers, as shown by the small per- 
centage of repections. No change was 
noted in prices. 

The Ninth-street house offered sixty- 
eight hogsheads of new Burley, which 
brought from $7.90 to $16, and twenty- 
two hogsheads of new dark brought 
from $4.85 to $10.75. A crop of etgl* 
teen hogsheads of Burley shipped by 
Charts & Well, of Missouri, brought an 
average of $13.05. The market was 
unchanged. No repections were re- 

The People’s house sold 145 hogs-

from $7 to $18.50, and seven hogsheads

few days here “looking in” on the ses-

electing a Democratic President at the 
coming November election. Congress- 
man Kimball says he knows what he 
Is talking about when he says that 
the Republicans are badly demoraliz- 
ed and the worst split up in years. 
He says the bitterness has frequently 
cropped out at the present session of 
Congress, and that many of the g. o.

to a razor edge. 

He says that Taft is certain to be 
the next Republican candidate for 
President, and this is all over but the 
shouting. He sa \ that, despite the 
fact that President Roosevelt has 
made the candidacy of the War Secre-

The dance at the Capital Hotel 
given by the Members of the General 
Assembly to the Assembly Ball Club, 
and friends, could not, by the widest 
stretch of the imagination be called 

It was not intended to be such. The 
Members of the Legislature, who have 
not been reared in the city, have some- 
thing coming to them, and — they got 
It. After a few figures had been 
danced, the "gentleman from Monroe 
county” called out “to get your part- 
ners for the quadrlll.” 

Some of those present had forgotten 
what the quadrlll looked like, but the 
dancers were as game as the "gentle- 
man from away down there in the 
sticks,” and pretty soon a “grape- 
vine," a half mile long, were dizzily 
cavorting over the floor. 

To give a zest to matters generally 
several special stunts were indulged in. 
“Windy Bill” and a few colleagues 
gave some extra fine "jigging,” which 
promised to continue till morning till 
some of those who wanted more 
quadrille pulled them off the floor 
Representative Denham, who “lowed” 
he couldn’t play a note, but could 
make some noise on the banjo, kept 
his word, and the jigging was con- 

Governor Bradley joined heartily in 
the encores. The Frankfort Orchestra 
caught the spirit of the dance and 
from the way that horns brayed and 
blared it put music in the feet of those 
who had not danced for several years. 

The receiving line were composed 
of Governor Bradley and Mrs. W. H. 
Cox, Governor Cox and Mrs. John G. 
South, Mr. Thurman Dixon and Miss 
Roberta Cox, M!r. Speaker Gooch and 
Mr*. A. D. Martin, Mr. Haaweil and

To Be Asked In Louisville To M 
Grave Of Governor Shelby’s 

A motion will be introduced at the 
next meeting of the city council in 
Louisville, by Eugene M. Dailey, Coun- 
man from the Twelfth Ward, to have 
that city appropriate $150 to place a 
headstone or small monument over 
the grave of Mary Carleton, the grand- 
daughter of Isaac Shelby, the first 
Governor of Kentucky, who is buried 
in the Portland cemetery. Mary Car- 
leton died at the almshouse on May 
2, 1882, and although the location of 
her grave is known, nothing marks 
the spot. Mr. Dailey deplores the fact 
that the first grandchild of a Ken-

|«nt Up From Louisville With Batch 
Of Prisoners. Reward Out 
standing For Him. 

A reward of $100 was outstanding 
for Henry Stepney, colored, received 
ht the Penitentiary from Louisville 
Thursday morning to serve three years 
for grand larceny. 

AJbout eight years ago Henry Step- 
ney was sent to prison for burglary 
to serve a seven-year sentence. When 
but about sevn months of his sentence 
remained, he apparently became In- 
sane. After a thorough investigation 
of his case he was committed to the 
asylum at Lexington. A few months 
later he escaped from that institution. 
As he had bupt a short time to serve in 
prison, the authorities, after notifying 
the police of the different cities, took 
no especial pains to locate him be- 
yond a reward of $100 for his arrest 
and return to the Penitentiary. 

Nothing more was heard of him 
until Thursday, when he was received 
from Louisville with a batch of prison- 
ers. He had been sentenced there 
under his own name to serve three 
years for grand larceny.

Elected For Woodford County Law

A new law firm was established at 
Lawrenceburg, on Thursday morning, 
under the name of Carter & Hlner, OCL/ 
who will practice their profession in

Court at Frankfort. The firm is com- 
posed of ex-Lieutenant Governor Car- fXp

Hlner, formerly of Jackson, of which 
town he was at one time mayor. 

Judge Pols- 
grove held that he had no author- 
ity to make Mr. I^aFontaine take out 
a license, but holds that if he is guilty 
of violating the liquor laws Mr. Re- 
horn should swear out a warrant 
against him and have him tried, and 
if he is found guilty, then a fine is 
the proper remedy for the court to use.

Success in advertising depends up- 
on favorably attracting the attention 
of that portion of the public you wish 
to reach. 

The eye appreciates a fine 
piece of printed work and disposes 
the mind to accept the argument be- 
fore a single line of type matter is 
read. The opposite is, of course, 
true of poor printing. The very 
strongest argument may be lost behind 


We study the style in typography 
and are constantly prepared to ar- 
range your work in the manner that 
fashion dictates, though we always 
avoid the extremes that appear ab- 
surd. Verily, the styles change in 
printing as in dress, and good taste 
is seen in one as in the other. We 
secure the latest productions of the 
type foundarles that are desirable, 
and carry an assortment of the good 
things in paper In medium and high- 
er grade, and when we send you a 
finished Job It will be a credit to you 
as well as to us. We strive to make

Then, too, the pleasure of using neat

Hon. William H. 

Cox, Lieutenant 
Governor, formally announced Wed- 
nesday night that he will be a candi- 
date for national committeeman to 
succeed John W. Yerkes. His oppo- 
nent will be R. P. Ernst, who has al- 
ready announced as a candidate for 
the place. 

This means that there will be a hot 
fight for the position, but friends, of 
Lieut. Gov. Cox believe that he will 
have no trouble landing the honor. 
He will have the backing of the new- 
ly elected Senator, W. O. Bradley, 
and will have the support of the Fair- 
banks wing of the Republican party 
in Kentucky, as well as many of the 
strongest Taft supporters. It will be 
a fight of the Ernst faction against 
the others, and it now looks like Mr. 
Ernst will be lost In the shufflle. 

The fact that Mr. Ernst was oppos- 
ed to Bradley and trRftl to defeat him 
for Senator as Is charged and believ- 
ed by many of the Republicans, will 
rally to the support of his opponent 
a large number of the leading Repub- 
licans of the State. At any rate 
there will be an interesting contest.

Cattle — The receipts of cattle yes- 
terday were light, 118 head; for the 
week thus far 1,547. The attendance 
of buyers was rather light, and the 
market light from start to finish. De- 
sirable butcher cattle were just about 
steady, while the medium and Inferior 
kinds were dull and draggy and slight- 
ly lower than the first of the week. 
The feeder and stocker trade was also 
quiet; high grades are eagerly sought 
after at current prices, but the med- 
ium, plain and common grades were 
a trifle slow, yesterday. Bulls firm; 
canners and cutters slow. Good de- 
mand for choice milch cows and fancy 
springers; common and trat\y light 
cows slow sale. No heavy shipping 
cattle here yesterday; the feeling on 
that class of cattle just about steady. 
The pens were well cleared last even- 
ing, but the closing tone of the market 
was slow. 

Calves — Receipts of calves 93 head; 
for the week thus far 570. The bulk 
of the calves coming are of common 
quality, and on that class the market 
ruled extremly dull and lower; bulk 
of the best coming are selling at 6@ 
6 1-2; some strictly choice calves, 120 
to 150 lbs., are selling a shade higher. 

Hogs — Receipts of hogs yesterdfy 
were 2,623 head; for the we %c thus 
far 10,715. There was a good healthy 
demand for heavy, medium and light 
hogs, yesterday, and prices were a 
dime higher, while the pig trade was 
rather slow; good heavy pigs about 5c 
higher, but light pigs were steady. We 
quote: Selected heavy and medium 
hogs, 160 pounds and up $4 65; 120 to 
160 poungs, $4.50; pigs ranged from 
$4@ $4.30, and roughs sold $4.10 down. 
The pens were well cleared of good 
hogs the market closing steady on 
that clasB. but rather slow on pigs. 

Sheep and Lambs — Receipts of 

sheep and lambs were light; for the 
week thus far 432 head. The market 
ruled slow, not much doing; some 
little inquiry for good to choice sheep 
and lambs; the common and trashy 
kinds dull and draggy at low prices.

districting bills and a “fair” election 
law. This was decided upon at a 
caucus held Monday night at which 
every phase of the matter was fully 
discussed. It is understood that it 
was the temper of the meeting that 
these measures were more essential 
than any local option law, and that 
they would be given precedence over 
the sumptuary measure. 

The Republican leaders here claim 
that, unless they can secure the enact- 
ment of legislation that will insure 
to them an apportionment of the State 
into districts where they will have 
something like an even chauce with 
the Democrats, and the passage of 
a law that will insure fairness in elec- 
tions and the counting of the votes 
as they are cast, they will have gained 
little for their efforts in carrying the 
State for Governor Willson and the 
rest of the Republican State ticket. 
They insist that they want to remedy 
conditions and place everything on a 
strictly fair basis. 

In this connection they point to the 
fact that by the provisions of their 
Congressional redistricting bill, seven 
of the eleven districts are given to 
the Democrats, Including the fifth dis- 
trict, which gave Sherley, Democrat, 
an overwhelming majority over

The building of a system of sewers 
in Shelbyville is now a certainty. The 
Court of Appeals having affirmed the 
decision of the Shelby Circuit Court in 
the case of Topton v. the City of 
Shelbyville, in an action brought to 
test the validity of the election at 
which the vote on the bond issue was 
taken. The Sewer Commission has 
advertised $30,000 worth of gold bonds 
for sale, and as soon as they are dis- 
posed of, work on the sewers will be 
started. The preliminary map for the 
sewers was made last year by a Phil- 
adelphia firm, and the contract was 
awarded Frank Sbofield & Co., of 
New ^.lbany, Ind., provided a favorable 
decision was handed down by the 
higher court. 

The State has a chance to dispose of 
the old State Capitol buildings and 
grounds to Franklin county for $50,- 
000, the sum desired to erect a new 
of Franklin county has appointed a 
committee of Magistrates to make 
the offer to the Senate and House 
Committees on Capitol Buildings and 
Grounds. One of the terms of the 
proposition made by the county pro- 
vides that the historic old Statehouse 
-will be preserved intact. The object 
of the county in acquiring the prop- 
erty is for courthouse purposes, the 
presnt ramshackle temple of justice 
having been frequently condemned as 
unsafe and wholly inadequate to the 
Heeds of the present day. Should 
the deal go through it is likely that 
the present executive building will 
be converted into a courthouse. The 
county officials will not oppose the 
plan to convert the old State build- 
ings Into a State Normal and Central 
Law School, a bill providing for which 
Is now pending in the Legislature. 
The county’s offer will be withdrawn

Famous Statue Of Washington In 
State University at Lexington. 

Painstaking searcu by Dr. John 
Quincy Adams, of New York, assistant 
secretary of the Municipal Art Com- 
mission, has resulted In the tracing 
of five bronze copies of Houdon’s fa- 
mous marble statue of Washington 
another bronze statue of which stands 
on Riverside Drive in New York 

The whereabouts of all these copies 
had been lost eight of for years, al- 
though diligent search had been made 
for them by art lovers. Six bronze 
copies of the original Houdon statue 
were made In 1851 from plaster casts 
taken in Richmond, Va.. by W. J. 
Hubbard, a Virginia sculptor. One, it 
is disclosed by Mr. Adams’ researches, 
is now owned by North Carolina and 
another by South Carolina, and are in 
in their respective State Houses. 

A third statue is in the Slate Univer- 
sity at Lexington, a fourth in Lafay- 
ette Park, St. Louis, and the fifth 
owned by private parties is in the Cor- j 
coran Art Gallery in Washington. The I 
sixth statue has been in New York 
since 1858.

While the party stands committed 
to the County Unit bill and a majori- 
ty of the Republicans would vote for 
it if brought to a vote, they recognize 
that every step of the way this meas- 
ure will encounter bitter opposition, 
and should they stake their all on this 
measure would likely meet with de- 
feat and destroy every chance of get-

sequently the leaders of the party 
are counseling that “a half loaf is bet-

gencies of the situation demand that 
they do not undertake to carry too 
big a load. Some of the Republicans

Ballatin county, is an announced can- 
didate for delegate from the Sixth con- 
gressional District to the Democratic 
National Convention to be held in 
Denver, Col., July 7. Senator Brown 
Is one of the most active Democrats 
in the Sixth district and a tower of 
strength to the party. He served in 
the State Senate twelve years ago 
and is one of the ablest lawyers in 
the upper branch of the Legislature 
at the present session. Senator 
Brown Is a most ardent admirer of 
William Jennings Bryan and predicts 
the complete triumph of the “Great 
Commoner” at the coming presiden- 
tial election. In the estimation of 
the Gallatin Senator the Nebrasgan is 
the greatest statesman the nation has 
ever produced and he is glad to sub- 
scribe to anything he advocates.
