SEPTEMBER 5, 1908. 



No 52 



L. Frank Johnson, of this city, who 
was nominated by one of the con- 
gressional conventions in Lexington 
on Thursday, will gu before the Demo- 
cratic State Central Committee and 
insist that he is the nominee of the 
party in the Seventh District. He will 
ask that he State Committee declare 
him the legal nominee and direct that 
his name be placed on the ballot 
under the party device. 

Should the State Committee decide 
against Mr. Johnson, and decide that 
J. Campbell Cantrill is the legal nomi- 
nee, Mr. Johnson will abide by that 
declslfc He will nut have his name 
put cm th ^ ticket by petition and 
will support ^r.ft^trill as loyally as 
he is able, said that he had no 
idea of doing thing except bow to 
the will of the %tate Committee, as 
he is a Democrat. He says he will 
contend that he is a lawful nominee, 
but if the decision is against him, no 
man in the district will give to Mr. 
Cantrill more loyal support than he 
will give. Mr. Johnson contends that 
the State Committee is the proper 
body to decide the question of which 
candidate is the legal nominee, al- 
though he would rather have the case 
settled by the District Committee, 
which is said to be against Cantrill 
by a good majority. 

When the question will be pre- 
sented to the State Committee is not 
known, but it probably will be in the 
near future. The State Committee 
would be called by the chairman, to 
take up the question, and would then 
pass on whether Mr. Cantrill or Mr. 
Johnson is the nominee. The whole 
question will be threshed out before 
the Stae Committee and its decision 
will be final. The announcement 
made by Mr. Johnson means that 
there will not be two Democratic 
candidates in this district, and means 
that the legal nominee will get the 
support of the Democrats of the dis- 
trict. 

The following statement of his side 
of the controversy was made by Mr. 
Johnson: 

“My position is, that the Franklin 
County Mass Convention appointing 
delegates, was null and void on ac- 
count of the rough riding and bull- 
dozing methods engaged in by the 
Cantrill men and for the further rea- 
son that a division was called for, and 
tellers demanded, and the Chairman 
failed to give the division and appoint 
tellers, and that he adjourned to the 
State House yard, a place other than 
that named in the call for the county 
masB convention, against the protest 
of the Kimball men. 

“If the selection of the Franklin 
county delegates was void, as pro- 
vided for in the party rules, then the 
Franklin delegates should not have 
been allowed to participate in the 
temporary organization. 

“Under the present methods of run- 
ning conventions, the man who can 
efTect the temporary organization can, 
ordinarily, secure nominations. If an 
election is void the party selected is 
not authorized to discharge the duties 
of sa*a office. 

"I went out of the convention hall 
with the retiring delegates from Bour- 
bon, Fayette and Woodford. My dele- 
gation did not attempt to participate 
in the convention which was after 
wards held on the rear porch of the 
convention hall, but I heard a roll 
call of the counties and 47 votes were 



stated to be present. With Franklin i 
excluded, 45 would have been a iwJ 
jority if the delegates select 
roll was called and ill IT v fl 
cast for Mr. Kimball; it 
time before he responded, ^^iea* 
only a part of his speech. When 
declined the nomination, some oncl 
nominated me, and after the vote was 
taken, the Chairman announced that I 
was duly elected, and he declared me 
.he njminee. I was not a candidate 
for the position, but I had made a 
strong fight for Mr. Kimball, in my 
county; I had been in the council at 
the ll o'clock meeting, and had vigor- 
ously advocated the fight to a finish, 
stating that I believed we should exer- 
cise every right which had been 
granted us under the party law. 
Under the circumstances, I could nof 
decline the nomination. I think that 
the State Central Committee should 
say whether or not it is right for the 
henchmen of any candidate, to rough 
ride 'and bull-doze and in that way 
c ntrol our county conventions, if 
in their judgment they say it is 
proper, I am too loyal a Democrat to 
disobey their mandates, I and the 
rest of the men who were with me will 
vote for the man, whom mey say was 
properly nominated.” 



Bourbon County Wants 

State Rifle Range. 

SITE OFFERED THERE AND BE 
ING CONSIDERED ALONG 
WITH OTHERS. 



Franklin county may not get the 
state rifle range after all, as a site 
in Bourbon county is being Inspected 
and considered. In fact Adjutant-Gen- 
eral P. P. Johnston has several sites 
under consideration and does not 
know yet which if the most desirable. 
He said Friday that he had not been 
able to find a site that was exactly 
according to requirements, but that 
he was of the opinion that he would 
not find such a site. 

Gen Johnson Inspected Trumbo's 
Bottom Friday morning. But this is 
not the Trumbo's Bottom where the 
frogs reside. The bog known among 
frog hunters as Trumbo’s Bottom is 
in another part of the Trumbo place. 
The bottom land which Gen. Johns- 
ton inspected is well suited for a 
range, and has plenty of space for a 
parade ground. It fronts on the riv- 
er and offers many advantages. It 
has not been secured yet and may not 
be taken at all, even if arrangements 
can be made. 



Aged Paroled Convict 

Will Die Free Man. 



So that he may die a free man, re- 
lieved of the stigma of being a con- 
vict, even though he is on parole, 
William Griever, an aged man, was 
pardoned Friday by acting Governor 
W. H. Cox. The pardon was issued 
after bond had been given to Insure 
that Griever would not become a ward 
of the State. The story of Griever is 
x pathetic one, and the pardon is only 
a matter of sentiment, as Griever can 
not live but a few months, and is out 
on parole, anyhow. He lives with two 
spinster sisters, on a farm, and has 
never been off the farm since he was 
paroled. 

Griever was sent to the penitentiary 
for twenty-one years for manslaugh- 
ter. He is totally deaf and shot the 
man, in Griever's story, when he 
thought the man was attacking him. 
After serving several years, Griever 
was paroled by the Prison Commis- 
sioners and went to his home. He is 
now a free man, and will die in 
peace. 



Suit was filed in the circuit court 
by S. T. Marcus against M. E. Gor- 
don asking for $3,000 damages for al- 
leged ph.vslcial Injuries. The petition 
is a brief one, alleging merely that 
Marcus was attacked while walking 
on the street by Gordon and that he 
was beat up so badly that he was per- 
manently injured. For this he says 
he Bhould have $3,000, and then he 
says that his doctor’s bills amount to 
$50, and that Gordon should pay them. 
The men had a misunderstanding in 
business matters, which resulted in 
the fight.

At Dedication Of Monument 
At Fort Meigs, 0. 

TO MEN WHO FEU IN WAR OF 1812. 



Col. Bennett H. Young, of Louis- 
ville, in a speech at the dedication of 
a monument to the men who fell at 
Fort Meigs, Ohio, said he thanked 
God for the result of the Civil War. 
Col. Young represented Kentucky, in 
the absence of Gov. Willson who had 
been Invited to speak and had ex- 
pected to attend the services. Col. 
Young is a veteran of the Southern 
Confederacy and is one of the first 
of the Confederate officers to public- 
ly announce that the result of the 
war was right. 

Forty thousand journeyed by trol- 
ley and boat to the historic spot 
where Gen. Henry Harrison, in 1812- 
13, checked the ambitions of the 
British General, Proctor. Many 
speeches were 'made, chief among 
them being the utterances of Sena- 
tor J. B. Foraker, Gov. Harris and 
Col. Bennett H. Young, who repre- 
sented Gov. Willson, of Kentucky, 
who was unable to be present. 

Col. Young said in part: 

"What a marvelous thing it is to 
be able to stand In this distant State 
and say: ‘It is our country.’ I come 
from the State of Kentucky, to thank 
the people of the Maumee Valley 
for this magnifieient monument to 
our dead. There were only 1,800 men 
killed in the war of 1812, and of that 
number fate put it up to Kentucky 
to sacrifice 1,000 of her sons. My 
kinsmen were In that fort on that 
day of May 4, 1813, and fought In the 
battles which saved this valley from 
conquest. 

"It makes a heap of difference how 
you come to Ohio. I came to Ohio 
once and you all took me and put 
me In the penitentiary. I am here 
now as a happy guest. I thought it 
a hardship that God should decide 
that our cause should fail, but I have 
since come to the conclusion that 
i God knew better than I did, for this 
| is the greatest, grandest and most 
progressive nation In the world. I 
will say now that I thank God for 
the result, although it was a bitter 
pill at the time. 

"I have come to hear to you the 
grateful thanks of Kentucky. You 
men who have for forty years pre- 
served with zeal the work of com- 
memorating this ground deserve the 
gratitude not only of Kentucky, but 
the gratitude of the whole country. 

"It was the spirit generated by the 
men who fell here in defense of the 
Ohio settlements that made the 
armies of the North and South tae 
greatest volunteer armies that ever 
rallied around a flag and cause, brav- 
ing death with a courage which only 
freemen can feel and that has made 
this the great Nation of history.” 

When Gov. Harris and his party 
arrived on the ground shortly after 
11 o’clock, the Governors salute of 
seventeen guns was thundered from 
the field pieces of Battery E. under 
command of Capt. Grant S. Taylor. 
When the bunting which draped the 
newly completed monument was 
drawn by the hand of David Robinson 
Jr., four guns of the battery gave 
another salute and the band hurst 
into patriotic music, which was al- 
most drowned by the cheers from 
several thousand throats.

“work" Gov. Cox. He is not railing 
pardons unless he has pretty*  od 
reason to believe that the con^ted 
man deserves to go free. 

Over in the lobby of the hotel the 
other night a man walked up to Gov. 
Cox and said: 

"Haven’t I met you before?" 

“Yes, I think I met you in Mays- 
ville." said Gov. Cox. 

“Oh, yes. I remember now; you 
were selling wall paper and varnish, 
weren’t you?" 

“No, I was not selling that." replied 
the acting Governor. 

"Well, what is your line?” asked 
the stranger, who was a traveling 
man. 

“I met you in Mavsville, you know," 
softly said Gov. Cox. 

“Why, sure, I remember now. You 
were selling paints.’* 

Speaking of Gov. Cox. a man from 
Maysville was telling a story about 
the acting Governor the other day, 
that shows how big a heart he has. 
A man in Maysville who is triffling 
and who can work, but will not un- 
less he is forced to do so, had done 
Gov. Cox several little favors at odd 
times and the Governor liked him. 
The improvident one was arrested 
one day on the charge of vagrancy. 
He was put on the auction block, and 
about to be sold to the highest bidder 
to work for six months. Gov. Cox 
was in the crowd, which had gathered 
to see the sale, and his sympathy was 
awakened for the poor fellow about to 
be sold like a slave. He slipped up 
behind the vagrant and shoved a $3 
bill into the man’s pocket. 

The sheriff went about his work 
and called the alleged vagrant up be- 
fore him, to have him show cause 
why he should not be sold. The man. 
ashamed and sullen, in despair 
pushed his hands into his frayed 
trousers, just by way of habit. A 
look of great surprise came over his 
face and then a grin of appreciation 
spread, beginning at one corner of 
his mouth. His hand closed convul- 
sively in his pocket, and he said to 
the sheriff: 

"I object to this sale for I am no 
vagrant. Here is $5 which I have. 
No man who has money in his pocket 
is a vagrant.’* 

The sale ended then and there, and 
everybody wondered where this man 
had secured $5. But he was not sold 
as a vagrant and he is the devoted 
follower of Gov. Cox now, and would 
do anything on earth for the acting 
Governor. 



thousand. It was a lively convention. 
For several days afterwards, when 
one met a man with his head band- 
aged, one would say to him: 

"Well, I see you attended the con- 
vention Saturday.” 

Of course, he did not receive his 
wounds in that way, but there were 
several heads cracked and others were 
more or less bruised in the stampede 
which followed the numerous fights. 
One man, who has just came to Frank- 
fort, said: 

"Being a non-resident I did not ap- 
prehend any danger when the fight 
started, but evidently I did not know 
Frankfort fights, for the crowd was 
confident that there would be shoot- 
ing. and they went out in a hurry, 
and I went with them. I did not want 
to go, for I was interested in the 
fight, but I went just the same." 

They say one man, as he passed 
out of the windows was asked: 

“How are they coming out in 
there?" 

“I don’t know," he replied, “but I 
know how I am coming out.” 

It happened this way. The conven- 
tion was called to order by John Grif- 
fin. The circuit court room was 
packed to the doors with a howling 
crowd of men, nearly all of whom 
were for Campbell Cantrill, but some 
of whom were for W. P. Kimball. The 
Cantrill men were yelling at the tops 
of their lungs with unction, for Can- 
trill. Mr. Griffin called for nomina- 
tions for temporary chairman, and 
somebody nominated John Noel. 
Somebody else nominated another 
man and then a third person nomi- 
nated Frank Johnson. Everybody 
was yelling and nobody could hear 
what anybody said, until the crowd 
quieted down long enough to hear 
South Trimble say he was there In 
the interests of Cantrill, and that Noel 
was satisfactory to Cantrill's friends, j 
Then the yelling was resumed with , 
redoubled energy. Mr. Johnson tool 
the platform and began to speak. He 
declared that the nomination of Can- 
trill would make this district doubtful 
and would mean the loss of 2.500 
votes. The crowd greeted this state- 
ment with derision and howled so that ! 
Mr. Johnson continued his speech; 
“with difficulty,” to put it mildly. 
Actually nobody could hear anything: 
else he said. After ten minutes of! 
this, the crowd, which had been good { 
natured, began to get tired and two; 
or three fights started in various 
parts of the house. They were 
settled quickly, however, and Mr. 
Johnson resumed his remarks. The 
crowd resumed its noise. Alex. 
Henry then mounted a table and ap- 
parently was about to make a speech. 
Bowman Gaines w r as already making 
one, but nobody heard him any more 
than they did Mr. Johnson. Mr. 
Henry did not say a thing, but simply 
stood on a table and pointed his finger i 
at Mr. Johnson. Mr. Gaines continued I 
his remarks. Mr. Griffin pounded for 
order. Mr. Johnson spoke. Some- 
body pulled Mr. Henry down and 
others mounted chairs and tables and 
spoke. The crowd howled with 
glee and nothing could be heard but 
the din of their yells. Mr. Henry then 
mounted the rostrum and was shoved 
aside. He mounted again and grabbed 
Mr. Johnson. The two rolled off the 
platform to the floor. Others jumped 
in and joined the fray. Mr. Johnson 
says he was struck several times in 
the back of the head. All was a 
tangled mass of fighting men, on the 
platform. How many were en- 
gaged is not definitely known. Other 
fights started in other parts of the 
room and inside the bar it looked like ' 
there were :a dozen encounters. 

Then the crowd decided it was dan- 
gerous to stay in the room and they ; 
left. It was a panic. They were out 
of that court room like it was the 
Iriquois Theater. If the building had

This wa 
carried out 
here, and they laid the grounds for a 
contest, expecting that they would 
have Henry county to back them up ?n 
the contest. When Compbell Cantrill 
carried Henry county, and had a ma- 
jority in the convention, it is proba- 
ble that the contest from his county 
was dropped. Frank Johnson, who 
was Kimball's leader here, had ar- 
ranged to send a contesting delega- 
tion from this county. 

Friends of Kimball had formed a 
plan to clear the court house and 
break up the convention held here 
last Saturday, but did not put into 
effect, because they feared the death 
or injury of one or more men. in the 
stampede which would have followed. 
The plan was to have some man on 
the outside of the court room set off 
some firecrackers while a man on 
th * inside, immediately afterward, 
threw giant torpedoes. It was ex- 
pected that the crowd would stampede, 
thinking that the noise came from 
pistols shots. A fight would have 
been started, too. to make it more 
realistic. This plan was abandoned, 
when it was found that the court room 
was so crowded, for fear somebody 
would be seriously injured in the 
jam. Had it been carried out the 
grounds would have been laid for a 
contest from the county, but the stam- 
pede which followed a real fight, was 
just as effective, and the Kimball men 
named a contesting delegation. 

The storm of Saturday, during which 
there was so many fights, has blown 
over and the Democrats are better 
united than ever, with no soreness 
resulting. The convention did not 
leave any bitterness behind and the 
ticket this fall will have the support 
of every Democrat in the county with 
prospects good for the largest ma- 
j rity which Franklin county has ever 
given in a presidential election.

MONEY FOUND IN POCKET OF 
OLD TROUSERS AND MAN 



NOW IS PARDONED. 



A $5 bill, hidden for several months 
In the band of an old pair of trousers, 
caused Roy Williams to be sent to the 
penitentiary here, and also caused his 
release. Gov. Cox pardoned Wil- 
liams, who was serving a sentence 
of two years upon conviction of the 
charge of robbery in Madison county. 

In a poker game one night Williams 
was a player. One of the players lost 
a $5 bill and accused Williams of 
stealing it. He had Williams indicted 
and convicted. Williams began the 
service of his sentence, but protested 
all the time that he was innocent. 
Several weeks ago the man who lost 
the bill found it in the trousers which 
he wore the night of the poker game 
and which he had not had on since 
that game. These facts were pre- 
sented to the acting Governor and he 
Issued a pardon to Williams.

This year, through the efforts of

that Col. Watterson has done a big

PRACTICAL FARM BUTTER MAK 
ING. 



How a worthless piece of rough hill- 
side and swamp land in Massachu- 
setts was turned into a productive 
meadow, is told by .1. N. Duramer, in 
the “Rural New Yorker” as follows: 

In 1886 we owned a pasture, 30 
acres of which, gently sloping to- 
ward a small run or brook, was cover- 
ed with a thickly matted growth of 
alders, gray birch and rose bushes. 
This growth was cut, and all not 
large onough to save for stove wood 
was burned on the spot. The stumps 
and rocks were removed, leaving a 
black loam eight to 19 inches in depth 
full of small roots, underneath which 
was a good bottom of clay. This 
was plowed in narrow beds, the dead 
furrows acting as open drains to the 
brook. It was then harrowed and 
seeded to grass the last of August. 
Careful accounts were kept, and 
enough hay was taken from 12 acres 
(all that was reclaimed the first year) 
in four years to pay all the expense 
of weighed hay. This encouraged Mr. 
top-dressed each year, and in 1906 
one measured acre which had been 
seeded 14 years yielded 3 7-8 tons 
o weighed hay. This encouraged Mr. 
Dummer so much that in 1906 he 
bought a pasture and swamp adjoin- 
ing this land and at once commenced 
turning it over. This land had a 
small hill, and was more rocky, yet 
most of it was of the same nature 
as his other land. This land was 
bought November, 1906, and on Nov- 
ember, 1907, he had 21 acres of It 
in grass; pretty good energy and 
enterprise for a man 78 years of age. 
Some of the farmers told him he 
would not be able to get hay enough 
to pay for cutting. The hay crop aver- 
aged over 2»4 tons per acre first 
cut. The spot photographed yielded 
three tons per acre, while no part 
of it yielded less than two tons. A 
few birch roots started in the early 
spring, but the thick growing grass 
did not let any of them get above 
three inches in height. The hay is 
of good quality, and is bringing a 
good price in the barn. The work is 
being continued, and is in process on 
30 acres more. 

One thing more in regard to the 
land. We turn it over again in rive 
or six years this time getting a much 
smoother seed bed. We will find the 
roots decayed and the soil will work 
nicely. With top-dressing each year 
we should be able to get best quality 
of hay for many years. As to ferti- 
lizing, we used at time of seeding 
in fall, 800 pounds per acre of grass 
and grain fertilizer (analysis is nit- 
rogen 2.20 per cent, to 3 per cent; 
phosphoric acid, 16 per cent, to 18 
per cent., potash actual 12 per cent, 
to 13.50 per cent. In the spring oat 
top-dressing 250 pounds per acre, an- 
alysis, nitrogen 8.50 to 9.50 per cent. 
We have used no fertilizer in the 
fall after the seeding, depending only 
upon the spring dressing as above.

There are sev^M 
making of goori^ 
quality of cows; sc 
feed and water given them; third, 
cleanliness and care; and fourth, the 
interest taken, and not being afraid 
of work. 

Cows in poor condition, or diseased 
in any way, produce milk that in turn 
produces bad-keeping and bad-tasting 
butter. The very best of cows are 
none too good. 

Quite often the buttermaker com- 
plies with every condition necessary 
for the making of good butter, and 
fails because of some detrimental 
quality in the milk. 

Cows fed on an extra quantity of 
properly selected food will produce 
more and better milk than will a 
third more cows fed on anything that 
comes handiest to feed — the bulk of 
it dry and poor in quality. Cows that 
drink from stagnant pools, or that 
eat weeds, moldy hay or musty corn 
fodder, or anything in the way of 
of hay or grain that is damaged, or 
anything ill-smelling or highly flavor- 
ed, will give milk from which good 
marketable butter can not be made. 

Cleanliness does not mean to use 
care with the milk only after it has 
reached the milk room. On the con- 
trary, it means that care is necessary 
from the time you come into posses- 
sion ot your cows until you market 
your butter and get your money. 

The greatest care and attention 
should be paid to the cow. The pas- 
tures and fields should be well cared 
for. The stables should be well kept 
and be whitewashed frequently, and 
plenty of air-slacked lime should be 
used as a purifier. 

Use nothing but the best of tin 
buckets to milk in. When the tin is 
worn off, discard the bucket for milk- 
ing purposes. Incidentally I will say, 
never use your milk-buckets for any- 
thing else than to milk in. 

Everything coming in contact with 
the milk, cream or butter must be 
kept In a cleanly condition. Care 
must be taken of all your milking 
utensils. Use plenty of warm water 
and sal soda for washing, and then 
use hot water, sunshine and pure air 
to purify them.

HOLDING UP MILK 



Most farmers and country people 
think that the “giving down” or "hold- 
up” the milk by the cow is a volun- 
tary act. In fact they fancy that the 
udder Is a vessel filled with milk and 
that the cow releases or withholds it 
just as she chooses. But the ud- 
der is a manufactory; it is filled with 
blood from which the milk is manu- 
factured while you milk. This proc- 
ess is controlled by the cow’t nervous 
system; when she is excited or in 
any way disturbed, as by a stranger, 
or by taking away her calf, or any 
other cause, the process is arrested 
and the milk will not flow. The ner- 
vous energy goes elsewhere. The 
whole process is as involuntary as 
Is digestion in man, and is disturbed 
or arrested about the same way. —

POSSIBILITIES OF A CITY LOT. 



HARDWARE, PAINTS, OILS AND GLASS 



A Milwaukee. Wis., man gives 
"Commercial Poultry” a very interest- 
ing report of his success with poul- 
try on a city lot. 

To begin witn, he says, my poul- 
try house is 27 feet long and 6 feet 
wide. Two-thirds of this is used as 
a scratching shed in winter. A yard 
15x27 is fenced in for a run in the 
summer. In the middle of this yard 
is a platform 6x12, 3 feet from the 
ground, upon which is built a little 
shed 6x2 1-2 and 3 feet high. Have 
also built two little coops, each 
large enough to accomodate a hen 
and brood of chicks, and each hav- 
ing a run of 30 square feet attached. 

Now as to stock. Have 20 White 
Leghorn hens and one rooster in 
the main coop; 57 chicks (52 days 
old) in the shed on the platform; 51 
chicks (22 days old) In the brooder 
in the scratching shed and two “bid- 
dies” in the little coops, with 22 and 
15 chicks respectively; also an in- 
cubator in my basement containing 
194 fertile eggs, and two hens sitting 
on 23 fertile eggs. In other words, 
I have a grand total of 166 birds on a 
plat of 27x21 feet. Since January 
1st, to date, (May 21st). I have 
gathered 1,327 eggs and have dis- 
posed of all I could spare at 25 cents 
or more per dozen.

was tried before Judge Yates Monday 
morning, charged with breaking into 
the grocery store of Mr. Robt. H. 
Towles, at Stamping Ground Sunday 
morning, August 16th. Mr. Towles 
testified that he went to the store 
about six o’clock and found a glass 
had been broken in the window', the 
hook turned and the sash raised. On 
going inside he found • Riley hidden 
under the counter behind a keg. The 
money drawer had been tampered 
with and could not be opened. 

IGiley acknowledged that he was 
in the store. He said Bradley Fish, 
back, another colored boy, broke the 
glass with a rock and told him to go 
inside. He acknowledged that he 
had broken into the Postoffiee. 

Judge Yates sentenced him to the 
House of Reform for eight years, or 
until he becomes twenty-one years of 
age. — Georgetown Times.

the convention. 

The rule which has been followed 
is to allow the delegation with the 
regular credentials, signed by the 
county chairman, to vote in the tem- 
porary organization. In fact we be- 
lieve the party rules so provide, this 
having been a frequent and potent 
cause of splits. It is a reasonable rule. 
Suppose there had been contests from 
every county in the Seventh district, 
how would the convention at Lexing- 
ton have been organized? Some rule

subject to the action of the Demo-

ject to the action of the Democratic

We are authorized to announce 
GEORGE T. DAVIS, of Franklin coun- 
ty, as a candidate for election to

The split convention at Lexington 
Is unfortunate, in that it may cost 
the Democratic ticket many votes in 
the fall election, but L. Frank John- 
son’s announcement that be will not 
be an independent candidate, in case 
the State Central Committee decides 
that J. Campbell Cantrlll is the legal 
nominee, relieves the situation great- 
ly. Mr. Johnson says he is thedluu 
ly. Mr. Johnson says he is a Demo- 
crat, and that he will abide by the 
action of the State Committee. If 
this committee decides that Mr. Can- 
trill is the nominee then Mr. John- 
son will support the nominee to the 
best of his ability. 

One Democratic candidate in any 
Congressional district is enough, and 
every Democrat should show the 
same spirit as Mr. Johnson. The rule 
of the party commitee should be final 
and whatever its decision the Demo 
crats should fall into line and support 
the man the party committee says is 
the nominee. As to the merits of 
the controversy at Lexlngon.: joipp 
the controversy at Lexington, that is 
a question which is to be submitted 
to the State Committee and will be 
argued at length before that body. 
The main question seems to be wheth- 
er or not a county in which a contest 
has been filed hns a right to cast a 




The result of the elections in Ver- 
mont indicates that the Democrats 
will certainly make great gains in 
the whole country in the presiden- 
tial election. The State election in 
Vermont, coming several weeks be- 
fore the national election, is always 
taken as a sort of barometer of what 
will be done in the nation and the 
Republicans or Democrats as the case 
may be, gather hope or despair from 
the gain or loss of strength in the 
Vermont elections. If there is a heavy 
falling off In the Democratic vote 
in Vermont, it usually means the 
same proportionate falling off in the 
nation, but if the Democrats make 
gains in Vermont the party usually 
makes great gains in the nation. 

The Republicans won the election 
by carrying the State for Lieutenant 
Governor George H. Prouty, of New 
Port, for Governor, by about 28,000 
votes, over James E. Burk, of Burling- 
ton. his Democratic opponent. The 
plurality is the smallest in a Presi- 
dential year since 1892, when it was 
only 17,965, and was followed by a 
Democratic national victory, but lar- 
ger than in 1888, and only slightly less 
than in 1900. There is a falling off 
in four years of about 8 per cent, 
in the Republican vote, while the 
Democratic vote fell off about 2 per 
cent. 

o 

That no bitterness or soreness re- 
sults from the county convention 
here last Saturday is considered re- 
markable, in view of the number of 
personal difficulties which were be- 
ing settled in the course of fifteen 
minutes. The convention seems to 
have had the effect of bringing the 
Democrats close together, instead of 
splitting them and the Democratic 
ticket this fall, will have the big- 
gest majority that Franklin county 
has ever given. The disorder in the 
convention was the fault of no per- 
son. It simply resulted from over-en- 
thusiasm on the part of the friends of 
noth candidates. 

The convention emphasized one 
thing. The courthouse is no place 
to hold a convention where the 
Democrats really turn out. That court 
room was so crowded on Saturday 
that it was hard to find breathing 
space and that no one was serious- 
ly injured in the rush to get out when 
the fights started is remarkable. Noth- 
ing like an orderly convention could 
have been held in that small room 
and the State House yard is a much 
better place. 

-o 

Mr. Bryan is awakening great en- 
thusiasm on his first speaking tour of 
the present campaign, having im- 
mense crowds to hear him at every 
stop. We thought the campaign 
would wake up and Mr. Bryan get 
into the game with a few speeches. 
It has been predicted that the Presi- 
dent will do the same thing before 
the campaign is much older and it 
looks like a sure and safe bet that 
he will be unable to restrain his 
impatience. One bright morning Mr. 
Roosevelt will decide that the cam- 
paign needs to be enlivened and he 
will tuke a running jump, feet first, 
into the midst of the campaign and 
certainly will enliven it a whole lot. j

The “U. S- A. Customs Tariff" was 
the most widely read book in London 
yesterday. Hundreds of American 
visitors, who are hurrying home in 
the great liners, rushed to consult the 
volume and learn from its pages the 
amount likely to be demanded by the 
United States Customs on the pur- 
chases made during a three months’) 
holiday in Europe, says the London 
Daily Mail. 

American visitors have bought morej 
largely in London this season than in 
other years. Inquiries of the man- 
agers of leading West End shops show ; 
the following goods to have been 
among the favorite purchases: 

Irish lace, linen, and poplin. Scot-) 
tish homespuns and plaids. 

Tailor-made gowns and evening 
dresses. 

English silks in exclusive colour- 
ings. 

China, including replicas and origi- 
nals of old English makes. 

Ostrich feathers, furs, and embossed 
leather goods. 

Antiques of all kinds. 

Although there is a 50 per cent, ad 
valorem duty on made-up clothing 
American visitors of both sexes are 
taking back a large supply of new 
clothes. Feathers even, with a 50 
per cent, ad valorem duty added to; 
their cost, are found to be a cheap in- 
vestment. Kid gloves not more than 
14 in. long have to be paid for at tbp 
rate of a shilling per pair. 

Purchases to the amount oL 100 dol- 
lars (20 pounds), In addition to per-

Presiding yesterday at the third 
general meeting of the Great Eastern 
(London) Motor Omnibus Co., Sir 
Thomas D. Pile remarked that their 
balance sheet was satisfactory at a 
time when their competitors had suf- 
fered losses, says the London Daily 
News. 

During the year they carried over 
14 1-2 million passengers, showing an 
increase of nearly five millions. The 
receipts amounted to over 92,000 
pounds since the date of the balance 
sheet. There had been a substantial 
increase of over 30 per cent, in the 
number of passengers and 36 per 
cent, in the receipts, compared with 
the same period of last year/ 
Speaking of the proposed amalgama-

Cantrill by a vote of seventy to one- 
half, the one-half vote being cast by 
Henry Jesse, one of the delegates 
from Woodford, who had refused to 
join the “rump” convention, and who 
declared that in accordance with the 
instructions of his county he should 
cast the one-half vote to which he 
was entitled for W. P. Kimball. 

The convention was called to order 
at 1 o’clock Thursday afternoon at 
the auditorium in Woodland Park by 
M. J. Meagher, chairman of the dis- 
trict committee. The first business 
in order was the selection of a tem- 
porary chairman. M. H. Bourne, of 
Owenton, was placed in nomination, 
by the Cantrill forces, while the Kim- 
ball delegates nrmed J. M. Thomp- 
son. of Bourbon. When, In the vote 
by counties, Franklin was called. 
Judge James H. Polsgrove voted that 
county’s delegation for Bourne. At 
once George R. Hunt, of Fayette, call- 
ed out: “In behalf of the counties of 
Fayette and Woodford I protest 
against the vote of Franklin being 
recorded. ’ 

Chairman Meagher ruled that Mr. 
Hunt was out of order, and the dele- 
gation from Fayette, five of the eight 
delegates from Woodford and the con- 
tested delegates from Bourbon, all of 
which were for Kimball, withdrew 
from the hall, retiring to the park 
grounds near the auditorium, where 
they held a convention of their own. 
Theodore Harris, of Woodford, was 
made chairman, and J. C. Rogers, of 
Lexington was secretary. When Fay- 
ette’s name was called G. Allison Hol- 
land presented the name of W. P. 
Kimball, and there being no other 
nominations, Mr. Kimball was unani- 
mously nominated. 

When Mr. Kimball was brought be- 
fore the convention he refused to 
accept. 

Upon the declination of the nomi- 
nation by Mr. Kimball. Frank John- 
son, who led the contest in Franklin 
county, was nominated by the dis- 
senting convention and accepted. Mr. 
Johnson in a short speech stated that 
while he is far from a bolter he be- 
lieves in standing up for the farmers 
and would accept the nomination un- 
der the condition that the case be 
laid before the State Central Com- 
mitteemen and that if that body de- 
cided Mr. Cantrill to be the legal can- 
didate he would withdraw and do all 
in his power to further the Interests 
of Mr. Cantrill. 

George Hunt, representing the del- 
egation of Fayette, seconded the senti- 
ments of Mr. Johnson, and the con- 
testing delegations stood adjourned 
at the will of the delegates. 

The grounds on which the delegates 
who withdrew from the regular con- 
vention based their action, they state, 
is the refusal of Chairman Meagher 
to recognize the following party laws, 
which were adopted by the State Con- 
vention last spring: 

"Election and appointment of pre- 
cinct commit icemen.

Democrats returning from the con-

TjutT/ ,.|H’ Committee, composed of 
r^^Hjj^Kien of the counties com- 
^Ktlie Seventh Congressional dis- 
will have the right to decide 
^Hrh is the nominee. It was con- 
fided by these men that the party 
law was changed at the Lexington 
State Convention so as to take the 
matter out of the hands of the State 
Committee and leave it in the hands 
of the District Committee. 

One or the delegates said that he 
heard Henry Prewitt, chairman of 
the State Committee, say that the 
new rules provided that the District 
Committee should decide questions 
arising in the district. This delegate 
said he heard Prewitt read the party 
law to Campbell Cantrill and say 
that in his opinion the District Com- 
mittee would decide the disputed 
question of nomination. 

This view is not taken by the 
Democrats generally here, and Judge 
S. W. Hager, who was chairman of 
the Rules Committee at the State 
Convention in Lexington says that 
the party law on the subject stands 
now as it has stood for several years 
— that the State Committee shall de- 
cide disputes arising in a district 
as large as a congressional district. 

The old party law was undoubtedly 
that the State Committee should de- 
cide, as was settled in the controver- 
sy between Gayle and Moody in this 
very district. The State Committee 
declared Trimble the hominee and 
the Court of Appeals said that the 
party law would govern and the 
decision of the governing body within 
the party. Frank Johnson, who was 
one of the nominees of the two con- 
ventions in Lexington Thursday, says 
that the dispute will be settled by the 
State Committee. He says that it 
would be absurd to allow the District 
Committee to settle a controversy in 
which they are vitally interested. Tom 
Combs, a member of the State Com- 
mittee from this district, says that 
the State Committee will settle the 
matter, and this seems to be the gen- 
eral opinion here and in Lexington. 
Mike Meagher, also a member of the 
Slate Committee, says that the State 
Committee will settle the controver-

The potato crop has been gr^By 
damaged by the dry weather and in 
some places is almost a total failure, 
while in more seasonable parts therp 
are some very fine crops. McKee 
Bros,, at Versailles, planted 40 acres 
of potatoes and they made an aver- 
ige yield of 125 bushels per acre. 
They treated their potatoes before 
planting and We think if others would 
follow the same plan of treating their 
seed before planting, that better re- 
sults would follow. 

The condition of the tobacco crop is 
not good and in same sections of the 
Strte the hail in the early part of 
the month almost ruined some of the 
early tobacco. 

Live stock of all kinds Is doing 
well, except where the dry weather 
has made stock water so scarce that 
sine are suffering on account of not 
getting what water they need. 

The fruit crop of the State will be 
very small, except in a few sections 
where there will be a good crop of 
peaches and apples and there is a fine 
crop of grapes. 

The comparative conditions of the 
various crops is stated as follows:

until midnight is a common thing 
with Gov. Willson. Of course, when 
a Governor sets for himself the task

chat Governor must sit up late or he 
that Governor must sit up late or he 
will get behind. 

Gov. Willson does that. He an- 
swers every letter which he receives, 
and as the mail is so large every day 
that it wears out a man to carry it 
only a few blocks, one has some idea 
of what the Governor has cut out 
for himself. The Secretary to the 
Governor usually answers some hun- 
dreds of the letters which are re-

ters being applications for pardons 
or written by cTanks or just the usual 
miscellaneous letter which comes to 
every man of prominence. But Gov.

WHITE CITY AND STATE FAIR 



Louisville’s Famous Amusement Park 
Will be Open for Visitors 
From the State. 



The White City, Louisville’s great 
amusement park, built at a cost of 
$300,000, will be kept open through 
tne week of the State Fair to give the 
visitors an opportunity to enjoy its 
multitude of atractions. 

This announcement is of the great- 
est interest to Kentucky people who 
will visit the fair, as it doubles the 
inducement -of the trip to Louisville. 
The White City is the largest amuse- 
ment park In the country outside of 
Chicago and New York. It covers 
enough space for a town, and in its 
bounds can be found amusement and 
entertainment unlimited. 

The oeauty of the White City it- 
self more than repays a visit. The 
immense Board Walk, built around a 
broad lagoon, is surounded by the 
buildings and devices, all of white 
and handsomely decorated. At one 
end of the walk Is the Shoot-the- 
Chutes, the long incline descending 
to the lagoon, the long ride down 
the chutes may end in a delightful 
dash over the waters. At the other 
end of the lagoon Is the large band 
pavilion. Here the Board Walk broad- 
ens Into a great area, in the center 
of which stands the lofty electric 
tower, a structure of Impressive 
beauty, and, when illuminated at 
night, a dazzling spectacle. Beyond 
the tower is the German Village, with 
its beautiful shade trees. It occupies 
in itself enough ground for a park. 
Beyond the village is the Immense pa- 
vilion, used for concerts, dancing, &c., 
which overlooks the majestic Ohio 
river at the most beautiful part of 
this stream famed for its scenery. 
Adjoining the pavilion, on the river 
bank, is an open air theatre and band 
stand, and further down the restau- 
rant. where one may enjoy a meal be- 
side the river at most reasonable 
rates. 

The Scenic Railway, the largest In 
the world, is to the south of the 
Board Walk. A ride on it is a most 
delightful sensation of rapid travel, 
and at the same time perfectly safe. 
The figure Eight is a similar device, 
in which one enjoys a ride that is 
a continuous whirl and a most fasci- 
nating pleasure. 

The Shoot-the-Chutes, with its in- 
spiring dash down the long incline, 
and the glide across the waters of 
the lagoon, is a pleasure of which 
one never tires. 

The Canals of Venice afford a trip 
in a gondola of a quarter of a mile 
through a reproduction of the Italian 
city. 

The amusement of the Board Walk 
are too numerous to mention, but 
the Third Degree and the Laundry 
may be mentioned as affording fun 
that alone is worth the trip to Louis- 
ville. 

The White City is situated almost 
adjoining the State Fair and on the 
same car line, and can be reached 
without the slightest trouble by all 
fair visitors. It will be a delightful 
place to repair to after the fair has 
been enjoyed, and the White City’s 
beauties and Innocent amusements 
will doubtless please thousands of 
Kentucky folk during fair week in 
Louisville. 



BUREAU OF ENGRAVING TURN 
ING OUT $2,500,000 IN NOTES 
EACH WORKING DAY. 



FRANKFORT, 
Friday, Sept. 18 

IT RINGS TRUE THROUGH! 



Director Ralph, of the Bureau of 
Engraving and Printing, is making 
noteworthy progress in getting out 
the new notes under the emergency 
currency act passed at the last ses- 
sion of Congress, says a Washington 
dispatch to the Courier-Journal. About 
$95,000,000 have already been printed 
and delivered to the Treasury, and it 
is expected that the dally output 
from this time on will be fully $2,500,- 
000. If this average is kept up the 
full $300,000,000 authorized by the act 
will be printed and ready for deliv- 
ery to the banks as required by Feb- 
ruary, 1909. 

It is the purpose of the Treasury 
Department to substitute these notes 
for those now in use as soon as pos- 
sible, and it is thought that within 
the next three months the department 
will be able to discontlue altogether 
the present notes and begin the gen- 
eral use of the new ones. The new 
notes differ from those now in use 
only by the addition of the words 
“or other securities” to the legend 
on their face, so that it will read. 
“This note is secured by United 



era or and one will hear a lot of 
things. It keeps the Governor busy 
doing all this leter writing, and he is 
up to his ears in work all the time. 
Still, it is Gov. Willson’s failing that 
he writes too much, his friends say. 
They cite as an instance a pardon 
which was issued the other day. The 
pardon was issued to a man who was 
convicted of petit larceny and sen- 
tenced to jail for six months. The 
Governor used three typewritten 
pages telling why he issued that par- 
don. It is good for the space-writers, 
but hard on the stenographer.

Rear Admiral Henry Glass, U. S. N. 
retired, died in California at a health 
resort of heart failure, following an 
operation performed several dayg 
ago at his home in Berkeley. Ad- 
miral Glass, who was 64 years old, 
had been ill for two months and his 
condition had been regarded as criti- 
cal for some time. 

Rear Admiral Glass was born in 
Kentucky in 1844, and was appointed 
to the Naval Academy in 1860. As an 
ensign he participated in all the gen- 
eral engagements with forts and bat- 
teries in Charleston harbor in 1863, 
and in the capture of Georgetown, S. 
C., in 1835. As commander of the 
cruiser Charleston he conveyed the

The suit is to be filed within the next 
few days in the Franklin Circuit

Local attorneys will be employed and 
several other prominent lawyers will

MILTON YOUNG SOLD IN NEW 



YORK FOR $13,820. 



(New York Telegraph.) 

At the Sheepsheads Bay sales pad- 
dock Monday a large consignment 
of thoroughbred yearlings, from the 
McGrathiana Stud, of Colonel Milton 
Young, went under the hammer. In 
all there were fifty-one young racers 
sold for a total of $13,879, bringing 
the average up to just a fraction less 
than $272 each. 

This sale, while not up to the aver- 
age of previous years, was an emi- 
nently satisfactory one considering the

One excellent sign In the bidding 
was that no sensational prices were 
paid to swell the average of the culls. 
As is always the case In a big lot 
there were some that were led out 
of the ring for less than $100, but for 
the most part the average price was 
brought. 

Henry McDaniel was the only bid- 
der to pay four figures. He made a 
successful bid of $1,000 for a very 
handsome chestnut colt by Cesarlon

Theodore O’Hara's portrait now 
adorns the wall of the Kentucky 
State Historical Society, being the 
first of the series of paintings of 
Kentucky poets which will hang in 
the poets’ archway in the Hall of 
Fame in the new capitol. Theodore 
O'Hara is one of the most famous 
American poets, his “Bivouac of the 
Dead” having won undying fame, and 
it was proper that his portrait should 
be the first to be hung in the Hall of 
Fame. The portrait was painted by 
William Besser, formerly of Lexing- 
ton, and is said to be an excellent 
likeness of the great Kentuckian. 
The portrait was brought here by the 
artist and hung temporarily In the 
room now occupied by the Historical 
Society In the old executive build- 
ing. Mrs. Jennie Morton has an- 
nounced that the work of painting the 
portraits will be continued now.

Huffman went to right .

his long suit. Guest was not^k-ood 
shape, so he was put in lef^kjelo 1 
and Chapman went to short, where he 
played a fair game. Schulte pitched 
and did well. Frankfort gave a go:d 
Imitation of a team trying to give a 
game away, several times, and played 
some stupid ball, but Richmond did 
the same thing, and lost the game. 
The visitors did a great deal of very 
stuj^d base running, taking long 
chances when they should not and 
not taking them when they should. 
The score see-sawed a good deal and 
Frankfort won out in the seventh, 
fter Richmond had tied the score in 
their half of that inning, by putting 
two runs over the plate. 

The game of ball between the 
liOitisville Colonels and the Law- 
makers here, some time about the 
middle of the month, will be the 
biggest event of its kind ever pulled 
off in Frankfort. Manager Burke will 
bring his entire team and you can 
rest assured that the club will play 
to win, as the game will be on the 
percentage basis. Manager Burke 
realizes that our Lawmakers will put 
up a fine game, consequently will send 
his best man to the box. “Invincible 
Rasty” Wright will be on the rubber 
for our pennant winners and its a 
hundred to one shot that the boy 
from Hatton don’t give a single one of 
the boys from Louisville fan trans- 
portation to the first sock. This 
game should be attended by every 
man, woman and child In Frankfort. 
It is not often the people of a city 
is afforded an opportunity of seeing 
a big league ball game and should 
not fail to be on hand.

win all the games played. But still, 
this impossible contingency could

fort team, man man, and individ- 
ually, outclassed *ie other teams in 
the league and there was never a 
xhance of being headed. 

^ Wright is the bright particular star. 
He pitched thirteen games and won 
them all. He walked only two men 
and one of those passes was really 
a strike-out, as was conceded by the 
umpire after the inning was over. In 
addition to pitching thirteen win- 
ning games, Wright played center in 
the games where he was not pitch- 
ing and his fielding, batting, base run- 
ning were a great help to the Law- 
makers in their run-getting. Wright 
is a pinch hitter and won several 
games by slamming the ball at the 
right time. Then take it all around 
and Frankfort has a team which is 
probably the best in Kentucky, out- 
side of the Louisville Association 
bunch, which is going to win the pen- 
nant. 

“Red” Bohannon belongs in fast 
company. He is fully able to go in 
with any American Association team. 
He plays second with snap and vim, 
and good head-work, and can hold 
down that sack for any old team. 
Look at the others; Zerlage at first, 
Guest at short, “Fritz” Hoffman at 
third, Angemeier behind the bat and 
(Chapman, Wright and Steele in the 
outer garden. That bunch outclasses 
anything In the Blue Grass, man for 
man, and it is no wonder that Frank- 
fort won the pennant. 

Early in the season Frankfort out- 
lucked the other teams. Frankfort 
won several games by luck, pure and 
simple, for Richmond had a better 
team, but “Chick” Kennedy got busy 
and gathered in some other players 
“Red” came back home, and Hoff- 
man got in the game here and In the 
latter half of the season it was always 
Frankfort. The others were out- 
classed and knew it. Young Schulte 
is a good pitcher and Cornell is good 
enough for Toledo ‘to try out next 
year, so he must be all right. He has 
pitched good ball all season and he 
and Wright have been the reliable 
and steady standbys of the Frankfort 
team. Crutcher was unlucky In that 
he Injured his arm by overwork, but 
with a rest he will come again, and 
next year he will be one of the best in 
the business. Allison played a bril- 
liant game at short, until he was in- 
jured and forced to drop out of the 
game for several weeks. His absence 
left a big hole In the infield and Man- 
ager Kennedy was exceedingly lucky 
in getting so good a man as Guest. 
Even Allison was hardly missed. 



There are few enterprises requir- 
ing a number of executive heads, 
which are conducted by one family, 
as Is the case of Miller Bros.' Show. 
Associated with the Miller Bros, in 
their gieat enterprise is Edward Ar- 
lington, who was for many years one 
of the chief lieutenants of the laie 
James A. Bailey, owner of Barnum & 
Bailey Show. It is upon him that falls 
the “show business" end of the enter- 
prise. 

"It is Zack Miller who arranges the 
programs,” said P. W. Harroll, one of 
the advance men of the big wild show. 
“He knows the nature and value of 
every act in the real wild west busi- 
ness, and every winter is busily en- 
gaged correlling all broncho busting 
and roping champions. Edward Ar- 
lington is the advertising genius of 
the show. The posters designing and 
the manner and extent of display in 
each town are decided by him. He 
has 75 picked men in the advance ad- 
vertising department. He selects the 
towns and cities for exhibition, and 
makes the railroad arranpements. 
Joe C. Miller looks after the finances 
and is the prompt arbitor of all local 
contingencies. 

“No man in the show business has 
a wider acquaintance with reporters 
and their editors than he, or is more 
welcome in newspaper offices. He 
knows what to write and protects the 
reader as sensitively as the coldest 
editor could wisji. He is popular with 
the leaders o? the business and his 
associates would work off their heads 
and mortgage their shoulders for him. 

“George L. Miller, the youngest 
brother, remains at the ranch, which 
comprises 110,000 acres, and includes 
three different counties, and is located 
at Bliss, Okla. It is his duty to make 
weekly shipments of outlaw horses, 
better known as bucking bronchos, 
long-horned steers, and occasionally a 
fresh supply of broncho-busting cow- 
boys.” 



«. And Then 



The Millers proved to be easy pick- 
ing for the Lawmakers at Shelby- 
ville, Tuesday, by a score of 9 to 5. 
Cornell did the slab work for the 
local club and pitched a fine game. 
He was opposed by Feeney and 
O’Neal.

Forrest, better known as “Rasty” 
Wright, will not be able to play an- 
other game this season on account 
of having his middle finger of the 
left hand injured in the game at 
Shelbyville Tuesday. He was playing 
in the center garden and attempted 
to catch a long fly on the run when 
the ball struck him on the end of the 
finger, tearing the flesh away from 
the bone. The many friends of 
“Old Rasty” will be sorry to learn 
of his misfortune as his slab work 
on the local diamond always brings 
out a big crowd. Wright has accom- 
plished this season, something no 
other ball player has done, not only 
in this league, but in all leagues. He 
has putched 117 Innings and has won 
every game and has never hit a bat- 
ter and only gave two men during 
the entire season transportation 
to the first sock. Wright has been 
sent to the box to oppose the strong- 
est club of the Blue Grass League 
and each and every time he has come 
out with the black and white colors 
flying. There are several big league 
clubs after “Rasty” for next season 
and we believe he will make good 
no matter where he plays. He says 
he hopes that his hand will be well 
enough to pitch against the Louis- 
vill cluu here about the middle of 
the month, as he is very anxious to 
show the big league fellows that the 
B. G. L. can play ball. 



The Injunction restraining the State

W. Hedden from his position as Super- 
intendent of Public Printing is to re- 
main in full force and effect until the 
case can be heard jn its merits at the 
September term of the Franklin Cir- 
cuit Court. 

The case was taken up before 
Judge Stout, and he decided that he 
was not ready to give his opinion of 
the law in the case until a further 
hearing has been had. He ordered 
the case set for trial at the September 
term of court. Th:s afternoon Judge 
James Breathitt, Attorney General, 
appeared for the State Commission 
and entered a denial of the statement 
that the board intends to remove Mr 
Hedden. Judge J. H. Hazelrigg ap- 
peared for Mr. Hedden.

the recognition of the State. One 
seeks to leave as much wealth in the

wealth by a just distribution of prof-

wealth, produce congestion and cor- 
ruption in Wall street while the farm- 
er is kept just out of reach of want. 
One seeks the greatest good of the 
greatest number, the other seeks the 
aggrandizement of the few. 

The Tribune writer parallels the 
charge that the American Tobacco 
Company has destroyed the business j 
of others by charging that the Burley 
Tobacco Society has inconvenienced 
independent manufacturers and hurt 
business of the commission tobacco 
: warehouses and the speculative deal- j 
ers. 

if the independent manufacturer 
suffers hardships it is the power of 
the trust that he has justly to com- 
plain of. He can not demand that the 
grower of tobacco furnish him raw I 
! material at a sacrifice in order that 
he may be able to cope with the trust 
Let the independent manufacturer 
make his fight against the trust that 
has hurt his business, the combina- 
tion that has squeezed out the many 
for the beneflt of the few. The 
J trust has truly said that the price of 
; tobacco would not affect their busi- 
i ness hurtfully so long as all manufac- 
j turers paid the same price for raw 
material. The Burley Tobacco So- 
j ciety sells at a uniform price. 

Until the Tobacco Trust choked 
| them out the commission tobacco , 

| warehouses and the tobacco specula- 
tor lived off of the folly of one end ; 

J of the tobacco-growing business — ! 
the selling end. Growers sold tobac- j 
co at auction in the commission ware- 
houses for anything it would bring — 
in many instances getting from a lit- 
tle to much less than nothing for It. 
They sold tobacco to speculators for 
low prices and the speculators held 
it for high prices. The farmers have 
found both of these methods to be 
most unbusinesslike. As before indi- 
cated, the American Tobacco Compa- 
ny has greatly decreased the volume 
of sales by the first method because 
they had control of the sales at the 
commission houses as well as at the 
barns, and the farmer had only extra 
trouble and expense without competi- 
tion when he shipped to the city mar- 
kets. 

So long as the grower could sell 
through commission warehouses and 
to speculators in actual competition 



 juoducti^P'is con- 
ening step is 
That.iH^Fhod of distri- 
bution is best which makes l the larg- 
est return to the producer without un- j 
duly burdening the consumer. No part ! 
of the machinery in any of these pro- j 
cesses has any clnim to perpetuity ex - 1 
cept as it does its work economically | 
and well. If the commission ware- ! 
house and the speculative dealer have 
been an unnecessarw expense to elth - 1 
er producer or consumer they have j 
forfeited their claim to a place in the 
economic scheme. The rewards of 
society are for those who serve it; , 
it has no system of bounties for those ; 
who cast more than they come to. 
A man is either self-supporting j 
through the contribution that he | 
makes to the general good, or he is j 
a beneficiary of the State. There is , 
no way by which the economic body ‘ 
is under obligation to make for him 
a place which is a tax upon the body ; 
instead of a contribution to the gen- J 
oral good. If this be true of indi - 1 
viduals much more is it true of insti- j 
tutions. 

The American Tobacco Company 
has destroyed for its own gain the 
business of others for which no im- 
proved substitute has been found. It 
iias destroyed the many to feed a j 
narrower circle and not to put in the 
place of the thing destroyed a more , 
efficient social servant. The claim 
of any individual institution upon so- 
ciety is measured by its worth to so- 
ciety. The measure of service is the 
measure of the claim to compensa- 
tion and continued existence. 

The Burley Tobacco Society is not. 
theli, a trust in the same sense that 
the American Tobacco Company is a 
trust, whether one considers the na- 
ture of the properties controlled, the 
method by which control was ac- 
quired, the purpose of such control 
or the social service rendered. The 
Burley Tobacco Society operates for 
the good of all engaged in the busi- 
ness of growing tobacco, not for some 
one concern that has monopolized the 
growing of tobacco. The commis- 
sion warehouse and the speculative 
dealer have no more claims to perpe- 
tuity as agencies lor selling loose leaf 
tooacco than the tallow dip has an 
agency for lighting or that the stage 
coach has as an agency for interur- 
ban transportation. 

They have served their day and 
have been supersedede by a better 
method. The Burley Tobacco Society 
does not destroy those in the same 
business as Itself, though it may elim- 
inate a business which has been 
shown to be out of date and unprofita- 
ble to society as a whole.

1907 CROP 



Must All Be Sold Before Any 
Of 1908 Crop. 



PLANTERS PROTECEIVE ASSO- 
CIATION TAKES ACTION- 
HALF YET ON HAND. 

The Executive Board of the Plan- 
ters’ Protective Association has de- 
cided that no sales of the 1908 crop 
of tobacco, under the control of that 
organization, shall be made until the 
1907 crop has been finally disposed 
of. 

The last report of Auditor Scales 
showed that about 30,000 hogsheads 
of the 1907 crop have been sold, this 
being about one-half of the holdings 
of the association. For several weeks 
now the sales of tobacco all over the 
district have been decreasing with no 
settled indications of a stronger de- 
mand at any time soon. 

The report that the crop which is 
now maturing would be one of the 
finest In* quality and largest in yield 
which has been grown in many years, 
is thought to have been one of the 
prime reasons for the lack of buying.

In the face of the crop earning on the 
buyers did not show as great a desire 
for old tobacco on hand. 

In order to remove this barrier to 
further sales the executive committee 
has passed the order that none of the 
19U8 crop is to be offered until the 
balance of the 1907 crop is sold. Al- 
ready 'there have been some rumors 
that a “no crop” movement would be 
started for next year, and unless the 
crop and a half n'aw on hand is dis- 
posed of before planting time next 
year this movement will doubtless 

gain more strength on account of 

those conditions. Officials of the as- i \| r8i Greene, secretary of the 

sociation say they confidently expect a8SO ciation, a complete list of the 
a resumption of buying within the niembers in their county.— Hopkins-

entire holdings at full graded prices, j

ciding that the prices now asked were 
equitable to all concerned. 

A salary of $60 per year was ordered 
to be paid to the various county secre- 
taries. Upon these men falls the 
burden of the clerical work in their 
counties, and It was the general opin- 
ion that they should not continue to 
work for nothing. The county secre- 
taries will be required to forward to

not risk having Bright's disease or

delay taking Filey's Kidney Remedy.
