WASHINGTON, March 23. — The Republican Caucus Committee of the Senate 
today authorized Senator Foraker in definite terms to propose the separation of the 
tariff feature from the Puerto Rican governmental bill and to attempt to pass the 
House tariff bill without amendment. 

The program is to vote down all amendments, if possible to do so, and pass 
the bill as it came from the House, without any changes whatever. 



KENTUCKIANS CALL 

ON PRESIDENT M'KINLEY

Samuel J. Roberts, editor of the I^exlng-

and stating Us intention to hold out until

ingly of the fight of the Republican party 
in Kentucky 'for honest government, of 
the injustice of the Goebel commission in 
yirowing out Jefferson county and other 
counties because of ballots claimed to be 
made of tissue' paper.

which he has not been fully conversaixt 
with heretofore.

Bvenlng Post Spsclsl Bsrvlcs. ' ' 

FRANKFORT, Ky.. March 23.— Crowds 
were astir early in Frankfort. A stranger 
would have known something unusual was 
about to occur. By 7 o’clock a crowd of at 
least 103 people had gathered about the 
courty building. Only a few soldiers were 
in evidence. A squad stood at each of tbo 
doors of the county building. These were, 
of course, Beckham guards. The regular 
State militiamen had strict orders to re- 
main within the tall picket fence sur- 
rounding Capitol Square. Consequently all 
danger of a clash was averted. Not one of 
the much advertised mountaineers was in 
sight. 

Sheriff Suter withdrew his patroling par- 
ties of special deputies at daybreak, and 
the members of the posse kept in the back- 
ground. Most of them were where they 
could be produced on short notice, however. 



JACK CHINN LOCATES THE 

SPOT OF THE MUEDER. 

Shortly after 9 o’clock Attorney T. C. 
Campbell, County Attorney Polsgrove, Jack 
Chinn and the Evening Post correspondent 
went to Capitol Square for the purpose of 
giving .Mr. Chinn a chance to locate the 
spot where Goebel fell on January 30. It 
was his first visit since that fatal day. 
Chinn walked to a spot well to the side and 
above the fouatain. Here he stopped. The 
place was higher up than most of the spec- 
tators bad located where Goebel dropped, 
hut coincided with the belief of Policeman 
Zac'ic Thomasson, who had driven a nail 
In the pavement within five inches of 
where Chinn paused. This evidently did 
not suit the designs of Attorney Campbell, 
who insirted that Goebel had been shot a 
yard or so closer to the Capitol portico, and 
on a line with the Secretary of State’s of- 
fice and that famous bullet-marked tree. 
He attempted to Impress this upon Chinn, 
who was positive, however, as to the lo- 
cality. Chinn could not be prevailed upon 
to move more than a few inches either 
way. 

But Campbell was Insistent. For a ma.Q 
who had been several hundred miles away 
when Goebel was stricken down be seemed 
to know a great deal about the fatal spot.

SENTRIES GUARD THE 

DOORS OF THE COURT-ROOM. 

The moraing trains brought In numerous 
witnesses. Of the late arrivals ^Tiarion 
Golden was regarded with most curiosity. 
He spent last night in the county and 
came in at 9:30. Silas Jonee, of Whitley 
county, was also among the early arrivals. 
The court-room filled up slowly. Persons 
entering had to pass between armed sen- 
tries. but no one was halted. 

George Denny and Wood Dunlap, of Lex- 
ington. were among the first to enter. A 
little later Arthur Goebel appeared alone. 

At 10 o’clock the attorneys on both sides 
entered. Tom Campbell accompanied Coun- 
ty Attorney Polsgrove. Ex-Gov. John 
Young Brown, chief counsel for the de- 
fense. was in company with bis conferees; 
E. E. Hogg, of Booneville; R. C. Kin- 
kead. of Louisville; W. C. Ramsey, of 
London, and Judge James Simms, of Bow- 
ling Green. 

A moment later County Judge Moore had 
convened court. The room was not crowd- 
ed, but several benches were cleared and 
spectators were invited Inside the bar. 

The general public was e.xcluded by an 



order of Judge Moore, only attorneys, rel- 
atives of tbe accused, v^itnesses and of- 
ficers of tbe court being admitted. Those 
admitted, however, soon filled tbe court- 
house, on the second floor of tbe build- 
ing. The Lexington and Winchester com- 
panies, armed with Winchesters, were 
scattered through the various rooms. Not 
much more than the ordinary 'crowd was 
on the streets, and there is no exdtemeut. 

Culton came in a few minutes before 
Powers and Davis were brought from the 
Jail. All three seemed at ease and chat- 
ted pleasantly with their attorneys. Upon 
their heels a file of soldiers maicbed in 
and lined up against tbe rear wall. Denny 
and Dunlap took seats.

failed to answer, an attachment was asked 
for him. He lives in Covington, and pre- 
pared Senator Goebel’s body for burial. 



EPH DILLARD TELLS 

OF THE ASSASSINATION. 

The first witness called tor the Common- 
wealth was Eph Llllard, Sr., warden of tbe 
Frankfort prison. He had just left Goebel 
when tbe latter fell, mortally wounded. 
He said he 'was opening the front door of 
the .Capitol building when be heard a shot, 

’ apparenj.ly coming from the executive 
building. 

He said when be ran back out upon the 
pavement tbe second window from the 
west end of the E.xecutive Building for 
the front side was open a few inches. This 
window is In the Secretary of State's of- 
fice. He then assisted in carrying Goebel 
away. He thought the shots following the 
first report also seemed to come from the 
Executive Buildiug. The first shot came 
from a rifle, he said, and rang out clear, 
while the others were muSled and loss 
distinct. 

Mr. LilUcd said be saw nu'uody in the 
room from which the shot seemed to have 
been fired, and he didn’t see any one In 
tbe main door or on tbe steps of tbe build- 
ing at the time of tbe shooting. Asked If 
be or Jack Chinn, who was with Goebel, 
drew a pistol, be said; “I didn’t draw my 
pistol and I dldn t see Chinn draw one. I 
don't think he did.’” 

Llllard told nothing new further than 
saying he noticed that a side window on 
tbe third floor of tbe Executive building 
was also open.

OFFICER THOMASSON CALLED. 

Policeman Wingate Thomasson was next 
called. 

} Thompson gave practically the same tes- 
timony as in the trial of AMiitaker. He 
said he saw armed men at tbe door of the 
executive building aod recognized John 
Davis and Berry Howard. Mr. Polsgrove 
conducted the examination. He was fre- 
quently prompted by Campbell, who sat 
at his side, and often whispered in the ear 
of the county attorney. 

Policeman Thompson said: “Was not In 
the State House yard when the shooting oc- 
I currod, but arrived as the crowd was carry- 
I ing Senator Goebel out of the yard."

“DETECTIVE’^ ARMSTRONG 

AND WHAT HE KNOWS. 

Detective Dee Armstrong was called- at 
noon. He said he rad gone to Powers a 
few days after the shooting, and tha» 
Powers, in answer to a question, had de- 
clined to tell him who was In charge of 
the Secretary of State office on the day of 
tbe murder, further than stating that be 
(Powers) had been out of town on Jan- 
uary 30. 

Armstrong said the door of the Secre- 
tary of State’s office had apparently been 
defacod by a hatchet or ax. as if the lock 
had been forced. He seemed to attach 
some« importance to this circumstance. 

The cross-examination of Armstrong was* 
cooducted by Gov. Brown on a whispered 
suggestion from Powers. Gov. Brown ask- 
ed if Powers had not said the shot could 
not have been fired from bis office. 

As also asked if Powers had not de- 
clared that he had left no one in charg* 
when he went away before the shootim: 
At this point Armstrong said he was no 
certain and could not answer. 

At this juncture court recessed until 
1:30 p. m. 

There was a long wrangle between tbe 







SERGT. WHARTON GOLDEN, 

The "star” witness in tbe Goebel murder case, w’bose name was not in tbe list of 
the Commonwealth’s witnesses. 



THE PUBLIC EXCLUDED. 



JUDGE MOORE ISSUES ORDERS TO EXCLUDE EVERYBODY FROM 
THE TRIAL EXCEPT REPORTERS, WITNESSES 
AND LAWYERS. 



Evening Post Special Service, 

FRANKFORT, Ky., March 23.— Judge Moore issued the following order thl« 
morning: 

‘•In view of the excitement atttjtHnt ay m iU» arresc and trial o( Caieb Row- 
ers. John Davis and W. H. Culton, charged with complicity In the murder of \Vm. 
Goebel. It Is now ordered that on Friday, March 23, 1900, and on every subsequent 
day during the examination of said parties, the Sheriff of the county, with the 
power of the county if need be. Is authorized and directed to place a sufRclent 
guard around the Courthouse premises, and not to allow any person or persons to 
enter tbe Courthouse or Courthouse grounds during said days of examination ex- 
cept the following, to-wit: The officers of court, the defendants and their counsel, 
one representative of each newspaper, producing proper credentials, and also wlt- 
nessee for the Commonwealth and the accused, but such witnesses shall only be ad- 
mitted one at a time, and only at such time as they shall be needed to testify. 
Witness my hand this March 22, 1900. J- D- MOORE, Judge.” 



attorneys over the question whether wit- 
nesses who had been examined might re- 
main in the courtroom. The attorneys for 
the defense objected to allowing witnesses 
to remain because many nf them would be 
witnesses in the trials of Davis and Cul- 
ton later on, or In which practically the 
same Issues wore Involved. Judge Moore, 
however, ruled that the witnesses who had 
testified might remain. 



TWO OR THREE POSERS. 

Questions as to “Conspiracy” Ar- 
rests That a Goebel Man 
Wants Answered. 



OWENSBORO. Ky., March 22. 1900.— 
Editor Evening Post; A Ooebellte friend, 
one who voted and worked for Goebel, 
called this morning with two or three 
posers. He wished to know why Powers. 
Davis and Culton are not tried. Also why 
nobody knows, or nobody will tell what 
evidence there Is against them. He wants 
•he man who killed Goebel punished, but 
he does not understand why the prosecution 
refuses to disclose who the witnesses are 
.against the accused. This, he says. Is not 
fair. If they are so certain a negro ehot 
Goebel, how about Whitaker shooting him? 
These are questions fair-minded supporters 
of Goebel are asking down here. It satis- 
factory proof of the alleged guilt of those 
under arrest is not forthcoming the people 
will lose all patience. 

Evidence that statements had been made 
that Goebel would be killed amount to very 
little. When a man who has killed hie 
man, provokes men as violent as himself It 
is common to predict that he will die with 
his boots on. In the month of January last 
it is safe to say, that In the State of Ken- 
tucky a hundred thousand men either said 
or thought that Wm. Goebel would proba- 
bly never be Governor, or If he did that he 
would never live out his term. Showing 
•he temper of the people is this incident. 
In the forenoon of January 30, last, a party 
of gentlemen were assembled In an office in 
his city discussing Hudson on ’’Psychic 
Phenomena.” One of the points asserted 
iiy the author was that when the minds of 
X whole community all agreed in expecting 
a certain event to occur, there was nothing 
:nore probable than Us occurrence. ’’Now, 
or example,” said one, "perhaps a thousand 
people In the State are right now expecting 



to hear of a conflict at Frankfort In which 
Goebel will be killed, and nothing Is more 
probable than the occurrence of such an 
event." 

In five minutes after this philosophic de- 
duction the news of the shooting was flying 
over town. However shocked all may have 
been by the occurrence, yet no one at all 
observant of events can say It waa wholly 
unexpected. 

"When a man doth compass or Imagine 
the death of our Lord, the king, of our 
lady, bis queen, or of the eldest son and 
heir,” Is the way Blackstone defines one 
branch of high treason in England. But 
imagining a man’s death has never been • 
crime in this country, be he high or low. 
If It were the multitude of criminals would 
be numbered by the thousands just now.

BRITISH LENIENT WITH BOERS. 



LO.N'DO.V, March 23, 2:15 p. m.— Col. 
PlUmer apparently haa retired to Croco- 
dile Pools and Mafeking seems further off 
than ever from relief. This news was 
contained in a dispatch from Buluwayo, 
dated .Monday, March 19, and published 
in the second edition of the Times. There 
advices add that the base hospital has been 
brought back to Gaberones, though the 
■correspondent further says it is thought 
the object of the Boer demonstration of 
March 13 and March 16 was to cover the 
removal of the siege guns from Mafeking. 

Gen. French’s activity in the Orange 
Free State may well be preliminary to a 
forward movement by Lord Roberts with 
the main army. A dispatch from Bloem- 
fontein, dated Thursday, March .22, says 
Pr®rdent Kruger Is reported to have is- 
sued a proclatnatlon declaring that Great 
Britain is in dire stress and that the Rus- 
sians have occupied London. 

A Springfonteln telegram, published in 
the second edition of the Times, says: 

"The apparent submissive attitude of the 
Free Slaters should be accepted with cau- 
tion. The large proportion of obsolete In- 
ferior weapons being turned in by them to 
the British is giving the impression that 
large stores of modern Mausers are being 
concealed." 

The Outlook's special correspondent at 
Capetown says: 

“Feeling is running strong against the 
leniency with which rebels of Cape Colony 
and Natal are being treated by the British 
authorities.” 

A Bloemfontein special says: Gen. 
French, with a brigade of cavalry and 
mounted Infantry, has arrived at Thaban- 
chu and opened beliographlc communica- 
tion with .Maseru. He reports all well.

DISMISSED FOR 
LACK OF EVIDENCE. 



Lottery Venders Presented in the City 
Court Have no Difficulty in Get- 
ting Free of the Law. 



The lottery men arrested by the police 
last week escaped punishment in the City 
Court this morning because the police had 
not euffleient evidence against them, and , 
Judge Buckley dismissed both cases. 

It will be remembered that Henry Sum- 
ser, of 807 Kast Market street, white, and 
.Melinda Parker, colored, were placed in 
Jail by Police Lieut. Burke on a charge of 
having sold lottery tickets in this city 
contrary to the law. The cases were called 
in the court on the morning following the 
arrest, but on account of the absence of 
Mr. Zach Phelps, the counsel for the de- 
fendants, the cases were continued until 
today. 

This morning the prosecution elected' to 
try the cases separately. Melinda Parker 
was llrst arraigned and entered a plea of 
not guilty. Lieut. Burke took the stand 
end said he had received information that 
she bad sold tickets for the lotteries. In 
Lact, he went on to say that she had con- 
fessed to him that she was interested in 
the “hlack" lottery of N'ew Albany, and 
that she received 30 per cent/ of all the 
money she took in. When asked by Mr. 
Phelps if he had ever seen her sell any 
tickets, or if he knew of any one who 
had ever seen her do so, Mr. Burke re- 
plied that there was no evidence direct 
further than her own statement on the 
subject. 

“It has not been proven," said Judge 
Buckley, "that there is any lottery in ex- 
istence, and for lack of evidence I will 
have to dismiss tho case," 

TbenSumser was presented. Lieut. Burke 



said he had gone to Sumser's place and 
found Sumser in the room with a board 
containing "bafk numbers,” He exhibit- 
ed the board. Yt was covered with num- 
bers, but there was nothing to show for 
what they were intended. When asked 
if be knew of Sumser having sold any 
tickets, Lieut. Burke said be did not. In 
fact, he knew nothing about the ease, 
further than that be bad made the arrest. 
His strongest evidence was that he bad 
the “evening drawing,” hut it only con- 
sisted of a slip of paper upon which there 
were thirteen numbers. There was noth- 
ing to show that it was a lottery draw- 
ing, except the bare statement of Mr. 
Burke ts that effect, and be was unwilling 
to swear to even this, for be had not 
seen the numbers drawn and knew noth- 
ing positive about them. That it was the 
“evening drawing” was only bis opinion. 

As in the preceding case. Judge Buck- 
ley said he would have to dismiss Sum- 
ser. as there was nothing against him 
that had been proven. Both prisoners filed 
out of court, their faces wreathed with 
smiles. Legislator Chris Mueller, who is 
said to be interested in one of the Clarks- 
ville games, was present, and went out 
after the lottery cases were dismissed. 
Tho courtroom was filled wilh runners, all 
of whom were deeply interested in the 
proceedings.

RELICS OF FAMOUS FAMILIES 

■ ^ As.AA.AAA A, A A -■ A A A ^ ruVA AAAAAJULOL 

There are in the possession of Mr. 



Campbell Carrington Cochran, of Big Stone 
Gap, Va., some interesting relics of the 
Campbells and Prestons, families that are 
prominent in Kentucky, collected by Mr. 
Cochran's aunt, Miss Virginia Preston 
Carrington, a woman of wide culture and 
attractive personality, who died some years 
ago in Bristol. Tenn. Mr. Cochran's 
mother and her sister. Miss Carrington, 
were the favorite nieces and adopted 
daughters of Col. William C. Preston, who 
was Senator from South Carolina in the 
days of that great triumvirate of orators. 
Clay. Calhoun and Webster. A grandson 
of Col. William Campbell, and the hero of 
King’s mountain, and great-nophew of Pat- 
rick Henry. Col. Preston was the worthy 
son of a worthy lineage. This collection 
ts of special interest to Kentuckians and 
Virginians, many of whom are closely re’- 
lated to the Prestons and Campbells'. 

Gen. Campbell's sword, used by his an- 
cestors in wars in Scotland, hangs by tho 
side of the one voted him by the General 
Assembly of Virginia in recognition of 
bravery at King's mountain. After Gen. 
C.ampbeU’s death the government paid his 
heirs a sura of money due him for serv- 
ices. the silver being made into eight beau- 
tiful sets, eaclv couslsting of a pitcher and 
two goblets, known as the "thistle pat- 
tern.” One of these sets is in this collec- 
tion. 

Among other pieces of furniture are two 
massive tables brought from Venice by the 
Prestons, of heavy mahogany, with claw | 
feet and marble tops. One top is of plain i 
Italian marble and the other covered with   
curious mosaics, in the center of which is 
a bird. Around it are hous*s and near the 
edge runs a border, all in bright bits of 
colored marble. 

.\n old tea set belonging to the Prestons 
is unique in Its pattern, having the birth- 



place and residence of the Presidents and 
prominent men of our co«/a\ry in raised de- 
sign. On one side of a piece Is the birth- 
place of Washington and on the opposite 
side is Mount Vernon. Webster’s birth- 
place and residence on ;|nother, and so on 
throughout the set. Tw'o heavy tankards 
go with this odd service, 

An old scrap-book, cbllected from the 
papers and letters found (n Col. Preston’s 
desk. Is perhaps most Irtteresting of all. 
There are letters of the Campbells, Pres- 
tons, Henrys and McDowells, many of 
them dating as far back as 1775, and 
breathing tho spirit of those Umes. A let- 
ter from Sarah Henry to her son-ln-Iaw, 
Col. Campbell, dated .May 21, 1777, con- 
tradicts the impression that Patrick Hen- 
Ty's mother was an illiterate woman. Will- 
iam Campbell writes his mother from 
Williamsburg February 6. 1777, where he 
has gone with his "humlng shirt riflemen,” 
the first company raised in Southwest 
Virginia having taken the place of the 
First Virginia Regiment under Patrick 
Henry, who was succeeded by Col. .Chrls- 
ttan. The letter is a tender* expression of 
his love for his mother and his interest in 
his work as an ofllcer, and adds: “I flatter 
myself that If the war continues I shall 
be able to distinguish myself in a military 
capacity.” That he did distinguish himself 
we have but to read how he led 400 Scoteh- 
Irish patriots of Holston valley. 200 miles 
across the Allcghanles to King's mount- 
ain, where with Shelby and Sevier he to- 
tally defeated the combined forces of Fer- 
guson's Rangers and the Tories of the Car- 
oliuas.

man, James Haggerty, J. M. Butler, .\b- 
bott Lawrence, and many others testify 
to the wide circle of friends Ool. Preston 
made during bis service in Washington. 
In the letters of Washington Irving.Henry 
Clay, Daniel Webster, J. C. Calhoun. 
Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, M'infleld 
Scott. .James Buchanan, - one quickly 
catches the gentle Influence and reads 
with a kind of reverence those quaint let- i 
ters written in stilted style full of high 
flown phrases and always with assurances 
of respect and esteem and continued 
friendship. One gets an idea how a busy 
President's life may be when Buchanan 
writes, "I scarcely have time to say my 
prayers.” Washington Irving's, letter of 
.\ugust 9, 1859, when the chill of death 
was already stealing over him, says that 
he has finished the life of Washington, 
and be would no more task himself with 
authorship. Webster's bright genial let- 
ters arc a contrast to the dignified cj m- ' 
munications of Henry Clay. 

.V receipt for "a still containing eighty- 
five gallons for the sum of thirty-five 
jiounds,” from William Campbell, Febru- 
ary 7, 1775, is no^ without interest. 

Among the papers are many deeds or 
indentures. 

On heavy parchment yellow with age 
is a deed for a tract of land reading thus: 
"George THE THIRD by the Grace of 
God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, 
King, Defender of the Faith & TO .\LL 
WHOM these Presents come Greeting 
KNOW YE that for divers good causes 
and considerations but more especially for 
in consideration of the sum of thirty-five 
shillings of good and lawful Money for. 
far psn paid to the Receiver Genero! of 
^our Revenue in this our Colony and Do- 
minion ,of Virginia. WE H.4VB given 
granted and confirmed unto William Pres- 
ton one tract of land containing three 
hundred and forty-live acres lying in the 
county of Botetourt. 

"Witness our Trusty and. Well beloved 
John, Earl of Dunm'ore our lieutenant and 
Governor General of our said Colony and 
Dominion at Wmsburg 15th of June 1753 
in the thirteenth year of our reign.” 
Signed by Lord Dunmore. 

"A deed from George The Third Febru- 
ary 14tb 1761 a tract of land of sixty 
acres to William Preston tor the sum of 
ten shillings. In the first of our reign.” 
Signed by Francis Farquier. 

The oldest indenture bears the date of 
1750 “182 acres for the sum of five shil- 
lings In current money of Virginia. Yield- 
ing any paying therefore the rent, of one 
pepper corn on Lady's Day.” Lady Day 
was March 25, the Annunciation of the 
Virgin Mary, and one pejjper corn was of 
insignificant value, being the berry of 
the pepper plant. 

The book closes with some papers of 
the days of the Confederacy. Mrs. Car- 
rington, n sister of Col. Preston, had two 
sons, officers, fighting against each other, 
and there are passports signed by Lincoln. 
Grant and Beauregard, permitting Mrs. 
Carrington to go between the lines to 
visit her sons at their respective posts.

BENJ. F. SHIVELY MAY BE 

BRYAN’S RUNNING MATE. 



[Special to the World-l. 

SOUTH BEND, Ind., March 19.— Indiana 
free-silver Democrats regard ex-Congreas- 
man Benjamin F. Shively, who Is men- 
tioned OB William Jennings Bryan's run- 
ning mate, as an Ideal candidate for Vice 
President. 

In many respects Mr. Shively and Mr. 
Bryan resemble each other. The Indl- 
anlan Is more than six feet tall and Is 
fine looking. He Is a natural orator, and 
is regarded as one of the most eloquent 
and convincing stump speakers In Indi- 
ana. He is a favorite with the Populist 
and with certain elements of the labor- 
ing classes. He is also a warm personal 



friend of Mf. Bryan. 

Like the free-silver leader, he is a law- 
yer, and a good one. He has served four 
terms In Congress. In 1892, when his last 
term ended, he wrote an open letter to bis 
constituents announcing that he intended 
to retire from public life and that ho 
would accept no further nominations for 
offlee. He has adhered to this up to the 
present time, and be has not committed 
himself as to whether he would break it if 
the Vice Presidential candidacy Is offered 
to him. 

Mr. Shively is forty-seven years old and 
a native of Indiana. He began life os .a 
farmer: became successively a school 

teacher, an editor and a Congressman. 
After bis first term he took up law, and 
since 1892 has devoted himself to Its 
practice.

LOGGING IN 

THE MOUNTAINS. 



The Tide Is up in Goose 
Creek and Business on a Boom — 
$500,000 Worth Coming Down — 
Gossip From Clay County. 



(Special Correspondence.) 

ON GOOSE CREEK, Clay County, March 
£0. — The tide Is up, and on Us bosoru 
many thousam/s of rafts are floating down 
to the Kentucky, and even to the Ohio and 
Mississippi, If not caught by the mills that 
spring up, growing in number each year, 
between here and Louisville. However e.^- 
asperating It may be to weary pilgrims on 
either side, who had waited the tedious 
hours of a winter’s night to "cross over in 
the morning," the rise in Goose creek is 
welcomed by every unselfish flake of hu- 
manity, almost as much as it is by those 
themselves who are actively .engaged as 
‘‘loggers." Logging is a big business in 
the mountains, though hot as remunera- 
tive as it was years ago. Before the rail- 
roads were built, people out in sections 
who had no creeks to float their timber 
down found it in a largs measure without 
Value. Laurel, Breathitt, Harlan and other 
mountain counties which have been pene- 
trated by railroads can now compete with 
ethers to whom nature has been more lav- 
ish in the gift of creeks and river. 

But the logging business is still the 
main source of revenue among the hardy 
mountaineers. The sole reason why corn 
sedls in Manchester, Hyden and other mar- 
kets in this section today for 75 cents a 
bushel is that the majority of the people 
have been during the past summer and 
fait, engaged in cutting timber, ready for 
the tide. Judge B. P. White says these 
mountain sides are the best corn-growing 
lands in the United States; that they pro- 
duce from thirty to fifty bushels to the 
acre year in and year out with more cer- 
tainty than any other section of the coun- 
try, since they are not appreciably affected 
by drouth. Of course the yield is greater 
If the rains fall in due season, but wheth- 
er the corn, after it begins to sprout, gets 
any rain or net, the minimum of a harvest 
is always satisfactory. In other words, 
there is never a failure of the corn crop 
when planted on the fruitful mountain 
sides, whether it rains or not. 

A LAND OF MILK AND HONEY. 

At one time the mountain regions liter- 
nlly flowed with milk and honey. Honey 
especially seemed "native to the soil. 
Talk about blooded Jerseys and other stock, 
there are no finer milch cows than the de- 
ncendants of the same .old "scrub" stock 
that has come down from former genera- 
tions of the Seotch-Irish-Engllsh breed- 
brought to these mountains more than a 
century ago by the brave pioneers who 

"Orosaod the blue Virginia hills. 
Against embattled foes. 

And planted here in valleys fair 
^ The Illy and the rose." 

Jersey stock and other breeds, both of 
cattle and horsets, have been grafted into 
the pioneer offspring, but only to result in 
improving tte foreign importation. 

Honey and maple sugar still flourish — 
with a slight tailing off in the quantity and 
quality of the honey, traceable to the log- 
ging buslnees. It is said that the blooms 
and blossoms of the poplar make the finest 
honey, a growth on which the bees feed in 
preference to any other vagetation, the linn 
and buckeye next. But the "loggers," find- 
ing such trees more profitable for mer- 
chantable lumber than for the treacle, have 
.almost denuded the mountains of the 

growth. „ 

There is no' better "poor man s country 
on the globe. I am informed by William 
Webb, a prosperous farmer on Horse Creek, 
four miles south of Manchester, and by 
others, that any man who is willing to do 
reasonable work as a farm hand can get 
from $10 to $1214 and $15.00 a month the 
year round. Thousands who eke out a 
miserable existence in the. over- populated 
cities and towns by. sometimes, humiliating 
If not doubtful methods, should come to 
the mountains and learn lessons of inde- 
pendence from the "vicious, red-handed" 
sons of honest toll. And a great many who 
are already here should thank God that 
their lives have been cast In pleasant 
places and beating their pistols into plow- 
shares and pruning forks and their Win- 
chesters into weeding hoes, address them- 
eelves to the manlier duties of life. 

THE GREAT LOGGING INDUSTRY. 

Caught on the wrong side (as far as 
Hyden is concerned) of Gooso Creek, it is 
interesting to hear, day and night, the 
mountain gorges pour their rushing, riotous 
currents down to swell the main stream to 
overflowing and watch the thousands of 
logs flying down Goose Creek to be caught 
in the booms, miles below, and rafted to- 
gether for the timber markets. A friend 
and I estimated this morning that the logs 
were going past on a tide of six or eight 
miles an hour, and about 1.500 logs an 
hour. If this goes on for twenty hours 
only, we have 50.000, logs worth from 
$3.00 to $10.00; or fix the average at $5.00 
a log and we have $500,000 rushing down 
Goose Creek alone. Jim Marcum has $10.- 
000 or $15,000 worth on the way this morn- 
ing. All this explains why coi n out here is 
selling for 65 cents and 7  cents a bushel. 
It is more profitable to float logs than to 
raise corn, though corn, wheat, rye and oats 
do as well here as elsewhere, and farmers 
are now sending off for Alfalfa, or nut- 
grass seeds to sow on their mountain sides 
tor hay and grazing. A friendly warning, 
however; My experience, or obsarvatlon. 
rather, is that the Alfalfa never lets go 
when once it takes hold. Its roots burrow 
down through the black canopy of hades 
to clinch themselves in the roof on the 
other side. You may tear up your moun- 
tains by the roots while tugging away to 
weed out tho Alfalfa. Such is its course in 
the alluvial lands of the lower Mississippi 
Valley, elountain rocks might resist it ef- 
fectually. 

ALL SORTS AND SIZES. 

Why hasn’t some telegraph, or at least 
■ome telephone company, long ago estab- 



lished a line between London and Manches- 
ter, London and Hyden, and on to Harlan 
and other points? If the Czar of Russia, 
Empress Victoria 9r President McKinley 
should be assassinated at 7 a. m. some 
Saturday, or if the whole continent of Eu- 
rope should be swallowed up the same 
hour by an earthquake, the people of Man- 
chester would not hear of It. under present 
conditlcns, till late the following Monday 
afternoon and Hyden twenty- fours later. 
A Manchester or Hyden merchant might 
make or lose by accepting or rejecting a 
check OD a Louisville or other bank, be- 
cause no one could await the slow processes 
of the star routee when, if there was a tel- 
ephone lino to some point on the Louis- 
ville & Nashville, ono could be advised in 
a few minutes. The expediting of business 
out iu this section would be worth thou- 
sands yearly. The telephone magnates 
must be a very slow party- This is a hint, 
for which 'lihey are charged nothing. 

Paper-made men show what poor mate- 
rial they are by the way they go back on 
their maker. 

Judge Robert Boyd, of the London bar, 
it is said, made one of the wisest and most 
incorruptible Judges who ever presided 
over the Twenty-seventh Judicial circuit. 
He has a keen sense of humor, as well as 
Justice, and must necessarily, therefore, be 
a man of wisdom. One day. while sitting 
at London, an Amazon was brought before 
him for some misdemeanor. She was in 
such a lowering rage that Judge Boyd or- 
dered her to Jail, peremptorily. Her lawyer 
soon after came in and wanted to know 
what his client was charged with. "It 
looked to me," dryly replied th* Judge, 
“as if she was charge*! with dynamite.” 
It took tho indignant lawyer (as it takes 
every dull fellow), two or three minutes 
to see the imiut, but when he did, his in- 
dignant phiz relaxed into a childlike smile 
and bland. The reader must not suppose 
that Judge Boyd was ever lacking in dig- 
nity. On ail proper occasions he carries 
"a dignified manly, open pose,’’ as has 
often been said of him. 

Manchester had a more terribld mad-dog 
fright some days ago than anyone of a 
number recently reported iu the Evening 
Post. Circuit Clerk "Daw" White had a 
valuable dog which suddenly became af- 
fected with rabies. He seized upon and 
almost killed a fine terrier belonging to 
Judge S. G. Reid and literally devoured 
two of her whelps before anyone knew 
what was the matter. Mr. White then 
shot him, but not until after he had taken 
in the town on bis rounds and bitten 
nearly every other dog in Manchcaier, 
notably a very fine mastiff belonging to 
Carlo B. Lyttle. in less than one day 
Judge Reid’s dog died in covulslons, but 
without showing any disposition to com- 
municate the malady. "Dink,’’ as her 
name was. was known as the smartest 
dog in Clay county, with so much human 
reason that she seemed to be aware of her 
condition and shunned every opportunity 
or temptation to maka other victims. 

When the soldiers were sent to Man- 
chester during the Howayd- White-Baker 
troubles two years ago, it was erroneously 
surmised that they came in the Interest 
of one of the parties. It the soldiers had 
been Lancaster, one of the ladles of 
■york— Mrs. C. — thus accosted them; “You 
fellows come up here with your little 
old Mousey (Mauser) rifles. You wouldn’t 
be a taste tor breakfast when our moun- 
tain men go for you with their 75 and 90- 
caliber Winchesters. You children had 
better go back home.’ 

One of the singular features of life in 
the mountains is the dialect- The edu- 
cated, like the uneducated, often use the 
same outre expressions. There are col- 
lege-bred lawyers and college-bred phy- 
sicians and surgeons, and educators, also, 
who call genuine "gen-u-wlne;" Infamous, 
"in-fay-mous;" I’m against him, "I’m 
agin him;" be was dragged Into it, “he 
was drug into it,” etc. It isn’t because 
they don't know better. Catch one of them 
in a case of Jurisprudence, literature, 
science or medicine, and he can measure 
lances with the best in London or New 
York, it is simply a matter of habit, with 
some of them, and I enjoy the idea, the 
solid Ifl-aln, so much more than the mere 
manner of expression, that I really en- 
joy it. 

That the people of Clay county are in 
earnest on the subject of education may 
be witnessed in recent liberal subscrip- 
tions made toward building Manchester 
.\cademy by people in the town; Macrum, 
White Sc Co. $300; Gen. T. T. Garrard, 
$150; Dr. I. S. .Manning, Judge C. B Lyt- 
tle, Daw. W. White, J-.R. Burchell, Judge 
Bev. P. White, Garrard & Roberts and 
Mrs. N. C. Potter gave $100 each; ten 
young lawyers and business men, $50 each; 
six, $25, and a dozen more, sums of $10 
and $0 each. C. E. M. 



STAMPING AN ENVELOPE. 

It is real^' disgusting to note the way 
some people stamp their envelopes I 

Why will they put their stamps at all 
sorts of slovenly, annoying angles, when 
they might as well plant them fair and 
square in the proper place? 

If they worked hard and were pressed 
for time it would be cruel to complain, 
but ten to one the offenders are those 
who take an age to do any and every- 
thing. Those who have It for work 
usually do it well enough. 

Perhaps it’s making a big fuss over a 
little matter, but one really might just 
*as well put a stamp decently right side 
up. It Is really taking too great liber- 
ties to stand the Father of His Country 
on his head. 

To some of us an envelope looks better 
when tho stamp Is so placed in the upper 
right-hand corner as to leave a margin 
of a quarter of an inch. 



Chronic Diarrhoea Cured. 

My mother suffered with chronic diar- 
rhoea for several months. She was at- 
tended by two physicians, who at last 
pronounced her case hopeless. She pro- 
cured one 2o-cent bottle of Chamberlain’s 
Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, 
and flve doses gave her permanent relief. 
I lake pleasure In recommending U as the 
best on the market.— MRS. F. E. WAT-

Abstracts 



Of the Opinions of the 



Court of Appeals. 



  ^ 1 * * 1 * 1 * * * 1 * ^ ^ A.AAA.A A A A A | 



PUBLIC WAY.— Duty of City to Keep 
Bridge in Repair. Indictment for Failure 
to Keep in Repair. Town of Paintsville 
vo. Commonwealth. Filed March 17, 
1900. (Not to be reported.) Ap.peal from 
Johnson Circuit Court. Opinion of the 
court by Judge DuRelle affirming judg- 
ment. 

First— When a public way is open:d 
through a city for the use of the public, 
and is accepted and used by the city, such 
way, and any bridge forming i art of if, 
becomes a public way of the. city and, if 
I necessary for the u.«e of the citizens, auch 
I bridge must be kept In repair, and must not 
be suffered by the city to become and re- 
main unsafe for travel. 

Second. — Although the city had the power 
under Section 366t of the Kentucky Stat- 
utes to reduce Its boundary so as to ex- 
clude therefrom a bridge forming part of 
the public way of the city, and did exercise 
that power to rid Itself of the duty of 
keeping the bridge in repair, it is Habit to 
indictment for failure to repair th? bridge 
I which it suffered to remain In unsafe cou- 
1 dllion for six months before the reduction 
of the boundary. 

Vaughn & Wheeler for appellant. ClifGhi 
J. Pratt for appellee. i 

VACATION OF BENCH BY REGULAR 
JUDGE. — Sufficiency of affidavit. Givens 
vs. Crawshaw. etc. Filed March 17, 
1900. (Not to be reported.) Appeal fiom 
Bell Circuit Court. Opinion of the court 
by Judge Guffy, reversing judgment. 

First. — An affidavit filed by a litigant to 
remove the regular judge from the bench 
did not come too late w'here it w’as present- 
ed before any motion in the case had been 
disposed of by the court, although orders 
bad been entered filing amendments iind de- 
, inurrers and entering motions. 

I Second. — Allegations in the affidavit that 



! the affiant had been opposed to the presid- 
ing judge in the election at which he was 
elected judge, although of the same politic- 
al persuasion, and took an active part to 
cause bis defeat and that siuce the election 
the judge had “threatened that all those 
parties who opposed him and kicked out of 
the harness in the election, that he would 
make them have a hard road to travel,” 
w'ere sufficient to cause the presiding julge 
to vacate the bench and his refusal to do 
so authorizes the reversal of the Judgment 
entered in the case. I 

Third. — The allegations of the peflTlon ! 
state with sufficient clearness the amount | 
paid to the defendant for limber, w'hich ’ 
amount is sought to be rcuavered. and it I 
was error to oUiniss the pet^Fion because of | 
the refusal of the plaintiff to make the \ 
same more specific after the court bad sus- ' 
tained a motion of the defendant to require 
same to be done. 

Weller & Hays, and G. W. Saulsberry for • 
appellant. William Low for appellees. 

PREFERENCE OF CREDITORS.— Inten- 
tion to Prefer Must Exist. Grable, Etc., 
vs. Reoz, Etc. Filed March 17, 1900. (Not j 



to be reported.) Appeal from Jefferson 
Circuit Court, Common Pleas Division. 
Opinion of the court by Judge Burnam, 
reversing judgment. 

Pjrst. — Before a creditor is entitled to set 
aside a transfer of personal property on the 
ground that it was made for the purpose 
on the part of the debtor of preferring one 
or more creditors to the exclusion of others 
the design to prefer mu^t \yc shown to have 
existed in the mind of the dtbtor at the time 
of the alleged preference; and proof that 
the debtor subsequently failed to pay the 
same pro rata to each of his ’creditors Is 
not in itself conclusive of such design. 

Second. — Where an Insolv. ut debtor, real- 
izing his insolvency, sells his property to 
one ,W’ho Is not a creditor for a partially 
cash consideration and takes for the bal- 
ance the notes of the purchaser which he 
indorses to some of his creditors as a pro 
rata upon their debts and expresses his in- 
tention of applying the cash payment iu the 
same proportion to other debts, but, upon 
the discovery of other debts omitted from 
his first calculation, he attempts to settle 
with the unsatisfied creditors at a less 
amount than those first settled with, there 
cannot be imputed to such debtor a design 
to prefer one creditor above another, and 
the judgment of the court adjudging the 



transfer of the property as an assignment 
for the benefit of creditors under the stat- 
ute was error. 

Zach Phelps for appellants. Arthur M. 
Rutledge for appellee. ‘ 

RES JUDICATA. — Thompson, Judge, etc., 
vs. Louisville Banking Company. 
Thompson, Judge, etc., vs. Third Na- 
tional Bank of Louisville. Filed March 
17, 1900. (Not to be reported.) Appeal 
from Jefferson Circuit Court, Common 
Pleas Division. Opinion of the court by 
Judge Hobson affirming iudgment. 

First — Where this court has ruled upon 
matters in controversy between parties 
litigant and judgment In the low’er court 
has been entered pursuant to tho mondate 
issued, this court cannot reconsider such 
questions upon an appeal from the judg- 
ment entered in obedience to its mandate, 
nctwithstaoding the questions deckled up- 
on the first appeal may have subsequently 
been overruled in separate cases. 

Second — The plea of res judicata applied 
not ouiy to the points which the court 
actually decided, but to every point that 
was presented by the record and neces- 
sarily involved in the decision of the case. 

H. L. Stone for appellants. Helm, Bruce 
& Holm for appellee. 

MORTGAGE. — Levy of Execution on Mort- 
gaged Property. Damages. Farmers’ 
Tobacco Warehouse Company vs. .Me- 
guiar-Harris Co., etc. Filed March 17, 
1900. (Not to be reported.) Appeal from 
Hart Circuit Court* Opinion of the 
j court by Chief Justice Hazelrigg afflrm- 
I ing judgment. 

I In this action involving the validity of 
I a mortgage on tobacco In which tho pro- 
ceeds of the tobacco were adjudged to the 
mortgagees and such mortgagees sought 
to recover of the plaintiff in an execution 
levied upon the tobacco, damages sustain- 
ed by reason of the seizure under the ex- 
ecution, the verdict of the jury in favor 
of the execution creditor meant merely 
that there was no damage occasioned by 
the waste or loss of the tobacco, being 
the measure under the instruction of the 
court, and that finding will not be dis- 
turbed., as the proof is conflicting. 

S. M. Payton for appellant. W .J. Ma- 
cey for appellees. 

DEBTOR AND CREDITOR.— Enforcement 
of Mortgage. Greathouse vs. Moredock, 
etc. Piled March 17. 1900. (Not to bo re- 
portejd.) Appeal from Hancock Circuit 
Court. Opinion of the court by Judge 
Guffy reversing judgment. 

First — Where a debtor and his wdfe con- 
veyed to their creditor a tract of land iu 
paymont of a mortgage debt against tha: 
and other lands, but the grantee was 
ejected from a part of the lands conveyed 
by a third party claiming title thereto, and 
the original debtor and his wife thereupon 
executed another note for the balance of 
the old dobt remaining unpaid by reason 
of the ejectment from a part of the land 
end executed a new' mortgage on lands cov- 
ered by the old one to secure the payment 
of the note, there may be a recovery on the 
new* note and the lands mortgaged are in 
lien to secure the payment. 

Second — The charge of fraudulent repre- 
sentations in the procuremctii of the new 
note and mortgage are not sustained by the 
proof; and the obligations having been 
executed afterr conference between the par- 
ties upon the matters involved as an ad- 
justment of these matters, there may be a 
recovery, notwithstanding the claimant 
might have been defeated in enforcing pay- 
mont of the balance of the debt by a pro- 
ceeding at law. 

W. S. Morrison and Chapeze & Wathen 
for appellant, Sw'ceney, Ellis & Sweeney 
for appellees. 

NEGLIGENCE. — Damages for Death from 
Xegligence*. Gross Negligeuce. Measure 
of Damages. Southern Railway Company 
vs. Barr’s administratrix. Filed March 
j 17, 1900. (Not to be reported.) Appeal 
from Mercer Circuit Court. Opinion of 
1 the court by Judge Guffy reversing judg- 
I ment. 

I First— A recovery of damages for the 
I death of a brakeman oanncl be defeated 
by a railroad company on the ground that 
the deceased was at the time cf the accideot 



al a place where he should not have been, 
and kne w* that it was a dangerous place, 
where the deceased at the time of the ac- 
cident was Biandlng *upon the tender of 
the engine, which was backing for the pur- 
pose of picking up detached cars of a 
freight train which bad orokou in two or 
I more parts, it being within his duty as 
i head brakeman to assume the position in 
which ho was for the purpose of discov- 
ering ob.struclions on the track, if any. 

Second — The enforcement of and compli- 
ance with the rule of the company requir- 
ing that a flagman should be s€nt ahead 
when lost cars were being picked up, and 
that such flagman ^should keep not less 
than fifteen telegraph poles ahead of tho 
' engine until the car.^ were reoebed. was the 
. duly of the •engineer, who was the supe- 
; rior Officer in charge of the engine, and not 
I of the head brakeman, unless he was re- 
I qulred to do so by the engineer. So that 
! tho deceased was not violating the rule of 
: the company by taking his posUion as look- 
I out on the lender of the Aigine. 

Third— The fact that the englner was 
aware of the posUion of the deceased at 
the time of the injury, and of the serv- 
ices being rendered by him as lookout, 
and that he accepted such services, was 
equivalent to an order to the deceased to 
take the position and render the service. 

Fourth— It was gross negligence for tho 
engineer to run hlo engine at a rate of 
speed varying from twelve to twenty- 
five miles an hour (in the eetimation of 
the various witnesses), when returning 
to pick up lost cars in the night time, 
although he In good faith believed that the 
oars had been stopped some distance 
from the switch, into which he bad run, 
and iulended to slacken his spe.vl when 
approaching the place where he believed 
them to be, it appearing that a number 
of the cars lost had become detached 
from the others and had rolled down the 
track a much greater distance than was 
anticipated by the engineer. 

FUTb— The measure of damages for 
death by reason of the negligence of an- 
other is such sum as will compensate the 
estate of the decedent for the destruction 
of his. power to earn money, the age of 
'decedent, his state of health, his earning 
capacity, and his expectancy of life be- 
ing taken into consideration, and an in- 
struction which told the jury that they 
were authorized to find for the piaiotiff, 
if at all. “such damages as will compen- 
sate her (the widow and administratrix) 
for the loss of the life of her intestate” 
was erroneous. 

Sixth— An instruction which spoke of 
punishing the defendant railroad com- 
pany, of furnishing an example to de- 
ter others from like practices, was preju- 
dicial to the rights of the defendant. 

Seventh — There may be, under Section 
241 of the constitution, a recovery of 
damages for death resulting from the or- 
dinary negligence of another. 

Humphrey & Davie for appellant. Mc- 
Kinley Boyle. Bennett II. Young and 
Jo::epb H. Lewis for appellees. 




Wife of the Young Millionaire Re- 
fused to Pay for a Waist. 



NEW 5'ORK, .March 23.~.\s .Mrs. How- 
ard Gould was stopping into her carriage, 
In front of her home, on hfifth avenue, one 
day this week, a young man banded her a 
legal paper. Mrs. Gould smiled good 
naturedly and said, "Thank you," as if the 
young man had conferred a favor. This 
paper was an olflcial notice to Mrs. Gould 
to appear in the Eighth District Court and 
defend an action brought against her in- 
volving $35, the price of a waist of blue 
panne and Russian lace. 

.Mile. Mirabella, a Fifth avenue dress- 
maker, Is the plaintiff. Through her at- 
torney she tells the story of the $S6 silk 
waist. It was ordered made and delivered 
to .Mrs. Gould in November last. Mrs. 
Gould, who Is an expert Judge of feminine 
finery, eycJ the silk waist critically, tried 
it on and returned It, saying. “It’s too 
wide in the shoulders and not full enough 
in the waist. Take it away." 

Mile. .Mirabella contended that the waist 
was the perfection of the modiste’s aft. 
Payment for the garment was demanded 
3rd refused, .\tter waiting many weeks 
Mile. .Mirabella instituted proceedings.

: A PROVISION-LADEN RELIEF SHIP FOR STARVING INDIA. 



■ (Extract from cable message from the British government to Christian Herald.) ] 

F “India government deeply grateful for renewed American sym- ; 
; pathy, and agrees to pay transport, protrided cargo is placed at dis- : 
: posal of Central Committee Famine Relief.” " 

This means that Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India, and hJ3 government will pay the 
vessel’s charter provided America will furnish its cargo of food. 

The piteous cry of starving India has echoed through  tbe world, and here in 
Louisville a movement is on foot to answer the appeal for help. The Louisville Pub- 
lic Warehouse Company, at Brook and Main etreets, will receive all comrlbutlone 
cf corn, flour, meal, medicines and delicacies for the sick, and the Louisville & 
Nashville railroad and the Pennsylvania railroad have agreed to furnish free 
transportation to New York, there to connect wTth a flying relief ship for Bombay. 

The most pitiful, most hearthendlng cry for bread’^hat has ever escaped human 
lips or reached human ears comes from famine-smitten India of the sorely dis- 
tressed and greatly afflicted people. Fifty million human beings in various stages 
of stisrvatidQ and 5,000,000 of these at death’s door. 

The greatest catastrophe of the closing century Is now being enacted, and un- 
less help comes speedily to India's relief 10,000,000 men, women and children must 
die before the next crop is harvested. 

The sufferings whioii prevail now make us shudder at the thought of the con- 
ditions which must exist later on, as the rainy season does not come before July, 
and then several months to the harvest. Understand that the awful famine in 
India is not only a grain famine, but also a water famine. On account of the lack 
of rain for nearly four years, the wells are dried up or falling fast, if they still af- 
ford water. The water is so impure, even where there Is a scant supply, that It 
sickens those who swallow It, 

All over these dreadful famine fields are heard the cries of the famishing, 
w'ailing for food and water. The very air seems loaded w’ltb death. 

In different parts of India they are dying in such numbers they are loaded on 
carts and taken away. It is estimated in one section alone that 1,500 die daily. 

Frightful reports of mothers boiling and eating their children are frequent. 

One woman In a village cooked and ate one of her children and deserted 
the other five. A man with his wife and three little boys were starving. En- 
closing two of the boys in a fence of thorns, he roasted and ate the third 

son. The mother would not partake of thq ghastly meal. Just as he was fin- 
ishing, two men came along and saw what he had done. His excuse w'as that 

hunger had driven him to it. The family was then taken before the King, who 

gave them food, and promised to rear the two boys. The father, after eating, 
fell aelcep and never awakened. 

When parents are mo^e human th an those mentioned above, they offer 
their children for sale at one and two rupees (a rupee Is thirty-three cents). 
At Kaira, a little child was found and rescued, which bad been thrown away 
in the river bed. 

Two cents a day will support a life. One dollar will keep a man, woman 
or child two months from starvation. With $5 work can be given to a man or 
woman, the wages of which will keep them alive until the next rainy sec- 
son, w'hen they can earn their living from the fields. 

America has never yet turned a deaf ear to the pitiful cry of agonizing 
despair. Ireland, Russia, Armenia, Cuba, Puerto Rico and India Itself beer 
witness to her generous and prompt responsiveness to cveir worthy appeal, 
and in this calamity, greater than any yet witnessed, she will unquestionably 
prove herself w’orthy the noble record of the past. 

All may help in this noble work of rescuing the pefaisbing; every contribu- 
tion, however small, will be heartily welcomed. 

The L. & N. and Pensylvania lines having generously furnished transpor- 
tation of all donations to New York, which has made it possible for Kentucky 
to do her share in sending the Flying Relief Ship to Bombay, Indie, let 

each one feel it their personal reepousibility in filling the cars with grain, 

meal, flour and canned goods (nothing perishable nor salted- meats). The Louis-

The swellest young man In the green 
cage at the session of the City Court this 
morning was W. .\llen Brown. His pale 
yellow hair was carefully .parted in the 
niiddlCi and his silk-lined coat was neatly 
brushed and buttoned closely across his | 
manly bosom, while a Hot Springs diamond ' 
gleamed and glowed on a milk white scarf. ; 
He had on patent leather shoes, too, and 
his trousers were creased In the latest I 
style. , 

•Mr. \V. W, I’arrlsh. of the Phoenix Ho- ' 
tel, took the stand and said Brown had ' 
boarded with him a month and then HeJ ' 
without settling. He left d:wo valises '' 
fllleil with hot air. and Parrish thought he 
.intended to defraud him. For that reason , 
he ha.'l the elegant young man arrestfd. I 

Brown was placed on the stand and he i 
told his stoiy. He ,a)i! he was formerly j 
manager of the Victoria Hotel at Tenth I 
and Broadway, but the latter part of Jan- 
uary he lost his posltiou. Then he wont : 
to the Phoenix Hotel and secured board, 
agreeing to pay at the end of the month. 
When the month was up he went to Mr. 
Parrish and said It would be several days 
before he could settle. Thie extension was 
granted, but the money did not come, and 
he loft rather than increase the bill. 

"I will give him my note for the 
money." said the prisoner. 

“O, you might give him a dozen no:es 
and that would make no difference,” said 
the Judge. 

"Yes, I would like to give a few my- 
self.” put In Judge Vaughan. 

Judge Buckley coueldered the matter a 
moment and then fined Brown $50. He 
was ted back to the cage and will have 
to go out to tha Workhouse In all his 
shilling raiment and break roftts just like 
an ordinary mortal.

Fannie crept out from the cage she had on 
a purple hat, and there were tears in her 
large, chalky eves.

"you have been before the court many

custody of their two children, was set for a

Adjudication of Nugent Case Will 
Soon Follow. 



A legal partnership was formed here 
yesterday of interest to lawyers all over 
the State. The new firm is to be com- 
posed of Judge .\lex. P. Humphrey, Mr. 
Henry Burnell, one of the best known 
lawyers of Western Kentucky, aud Mr. 
Edward P. Humphrey, of this city. 

Since the death of Mr. George M. Davie 
several weeks ago Judge Humphrey has 
been without a partner, and there has 
been much speculation among the lawyers 
of this city concerning the personnel of 
the new firm. Judge Humphrey has been 
iu correspondence with Mr. Burnett for 
several days, and on yesterday the latter 
came to Louisville, and all the details of 
the partnership were agreed upon. .Mr. 
Burnett left yesterday for bis home In 
Paducah, where be: will wind up a number 
of cases pending before the Circuit Court 
there preparatory to making bis home in 
this city. 

Mr. Burnett was a class mate of Judge 
Humphrey at the Law School at the L'nl- 
verelly of Virginia. Since their gradua- 
tion they have always been liitiinate 
friends and have frequently been associat- 
ed with each other In business before the 
Court of .Appeals and In the L'nitcd States 
Court. the twenty-flve years In which 
he has practiced at the Paducah bar Mr. 
Burnett has condurtfd many of the most 
important cases that have arisen in West- 
ern Kentucky, and is considered one of 
the most effective Jury speakers in the 
State. , 

-Mr. Edward P. Humphrty. the third 
member of the new firm, is a son of Mr. 
E. W. C. Humphrey and a nephew of 
Judge Humphrey. He was graduated from 
the Louisville Law School about six years 
ago, and was for some time connected with 
the firm of Gibson & .Marshall. Later he 
practiced independently, and for the last 
six months has been connected with the 
firm of Humphrey & Davie. 

The title of the new firm \vlll be Hum- 
i phrey, Burneit & Humphrey. 



E. B. Nugent’s attorneys this morning 
withdrew the answer of the (Tcfendant In 
the bankruptcy proceedings instituted 
against .Nugent some time since by the 
M'Syne Knitting .Mills, of Ft. Wayne. Ind ; 
Belding Bros. & Co., pf Cincinnati, and 
the German insurance Bank, of this city. 

Now that the defendant’s answer has 
been withdrawn, an order of reference to 
the referee in bankruptcy will be issued 
at once, and an adjudication will follow. 

It is understood that the majority of 
Mr. Nugent’s creditors have agreed to a 
compromise at 20 cents on rhe dollar. This 
will bind the balance of bis creditors 
whether they are willing to compromise 
on this basis or not.

Negotiations are pending for the purchase 
of the Warren Memorial Church property, 
corner E'ourih and Broadway, by the con- 
gregation of tho Fourth and Walnut-stree» 
Baptist Church. The laiter are very anx- 
ious to acquire the property, as they re-

^Ity Assessor Murphy stated this morn- 
ing that the ordinance which reoenily pass- 
ed tho Ix)wer Board of the General Coun- 
cil providing fer the annexation of Cres- 
cent Hill had been erroneously drawn and 
was. thorofore, null acd void. He said that 
he originally drew the ordinance, with the 
aid of cei:ain charts in his possession, but 
that it had been changed before it went to 
the Council, and ttat it made the plot of 
ground annexed begin In mid-air. The ob- 
ject of the change was to omit certain prop- 
erty. and Mr. Murphy thought that change 
perhaps a good one, but said that It had 
bfen made by some one not as familiar as 
he is with the location of the property. 

The Council will probably amend the or- 
dinance and pass it again at Us next meet- 
ing.

SCIENCE VS. RELIGION 

SUBJECT OF A LECTURE. 

j Science vs. Religion was the theme of 
Prof. W. L. Poteat’s lecture at Norton ! 

! Hall, Southern Baptist Theological Semi- 
nary, last night. The large lecture room 
was crowded and the lecture received in- 
terested attcn’.ion throughout. Dr. W. H. 
WhltsUt, toimer President of the Seminary. 

t ied in the opening prayer. Prof. Poteit 
said that theology had been revised in the 
light of the new science, but that religion 
remained the same, being a personal at- 
tachment to Josus Christ. He closed by 
arguing that science is not hostile to true 
religion. Science, he said, authenticates 
the spiritual world and Christ and his doc- 
trines remain unharmed by criticism. 



CHIEF HAAGER MADE A RAID. 



By an Error a Policeman Spoiled It 
by Being Too Pre- 
cipitate. 



GIVE HAAGER A SHOW 

AND HE’LL BREAK 'EM UP. 



m SWISS. 



NO EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM IN 
BULLITT COUNTY CRIME. 



In the Evening Post yesterday Chief of 
Police Haager's statement concerning the 
lotteries DOW running in Louisville showed 
that the police knSw of the existence of 
the policy shops in Louisville, and that 
Chief Haager was planning to ca*ch the 
ringleaders of the “ring.” Mr. Haager gave 
orders for a raid for last Saturday night, 
but one officer misunderstood the order- and 
made an arrest on Friday night. Chitf 
Haager said : 

*T read the story yesterday carefully, and 
will say that all the branches mentioned 
are said to have contained lotteries in die 
] a«t. I was planning a raid of all these 
branches, and intend to try to etop lottery 
vending here. The conditions are, however, 
very discouraging. Almost every man I 
have arrested is discharged in the courts, 
and few' take any ifitere?t In (he law! against 
lotteries.” 

Chief Hdager honestly stated that he w'as 
after these fellows, but the Morning Apolo- 
gist for the city administration, the Cou- 
rier-Journal. says today: 

"Mayor Weaver and Chief of Police Haager 
posR:v:ly deny cny knowledge ol* the opera- 
tions of lottery venders in Louisville. They 
have always maintained the position that 
the ‘policy shops' should be closed and 
the police have been under orders fer 
montha to arrest venders of lottery tickets, 
and all persons connected w^th a ’shop' 
in any capacity.” 

Tbe Times says: 

"The police have instructions to allow' ' 
no lottery vending in Louisville, bat are, 
of course, powerless to break up the lot- 
tery offices in Indiana. No complaint 
has been made to the Mayor or Chief of 
Police that any lottery business is con- 
ducted here, but some have re^rted 
that venders were trying to do business 
here for the Jeffereonvllle concern.” 

In the Courier-Journal • the Mayor Is 
made to say; 

"One of the first things I did w*hen I 
came into office w'as to go after the lottery 
offices, the men who conducted them, and 
the venders who cross the river from In- 
diana and sell drawings to people In Lou- 
isville. The police have instructions to al- 
low no lottery vending here, and T have no 
knowledge that the .game is being prac- 
ticed in the city. I will not say the In- 
diana venders have not tried to ply th?ir 
trade on this side of th^ river, for they 
grasp every opportunity to do so. I wane 
to make the point plain, however, that I 
want the veiidirg stopped and, as I have 
said, the police have stringent orders to 
break up the bus. ness. Many venders have 
been arrested during my term of office, and 
cases against them are now pending in tbe 
Criminal courts." 

Why these papers should attempt to 
shield the lotteries mast be left to con- 
jecture. 

Chief Haager has a good case against 
Sumser. and will doubtless get other ven- 
ders and runners. The people know thes* 
lotteries are running, and look to the Mayor 
and Board of Works to aid the Chief in 



The Neg^ro Stevenson Now Says His 
Confession Was Wrung from 
Him by the Police. 



Fred Brachbuhl, the Swiss who was sus- 
pected of having murdered Ellen Taylor, 
tbe aged negress who was killed on the 
Huber farm, was presented in court at 
Shepherdsvllle yesterday. There was no 
evidence against him, and the case was at 
once dismissed. 

Tbe peculiar behavior of tbe Swiss is 
what caused him to be suspected, and had 
the negro Stevenson not confessed there 
is hardly a doubt but it would have gone 
hard with the innocent foreigner. He 
worked on tbe Huber farm, and is said to 
have approached several women in the vi- 
cinity. The man was delighted when be 
was dismissed, and went back to work on 
tbe farm with a happy heart. 

Now Stevenson insists that the eoufes- 
sion was wrung from him by the Louis- 
ville police, and that be bad nothing to 
do with the commission of tbe crime. When 
he made his confession Chief Haager told 
him his words were likely to cost him his 
life, but he Insisted that they were true, 
and he proceeded to show beyond a doubt 
that he was the murderer. Officer Fitz- 
gibbons has gone to Memphis to investigate 
that part of his story. All the rest has 
been proven to be true. The people in 
Biilliit county are determined that the 
negro shall be prosecuted to the limit, 
and every effort will be made to hang him.

GRAPE FROM A QATLING GUN. 



Editor Evening Post: 

For some time I have hoped, and be- 
lieved, that much good might come out 
of the Rev. Mr. Sheldon’s Topska Capital, 
but here he Is with an editorial entitled, 
"Love is the Greatest Thing In the World." 
The idea of calling love a "Thing," and 
with a Topeka (Kan.) Capital letter at 
that. That word, like Res in Latin, often 
has the commonest significance — it can 
be applied to almost "any old thing." I 
am disappointed that Mr. Sheldon should’ 
thus clip the wings of Cupid after such a 
fashion. Moreover, in his theories of ab- 
stinence and sumptuary law. be should ml 
forget that the neccssiiy of today was a 
tabooed luxury, even a hundred years ago, 
and many years less, some of them. 

Why is it that every "Jedge" or jass-ack 
of the peace is "handing his dec si^ns 
down?” ii wasn't so a few years ago. 



Only an Appellate Court handed his opin- 
ions down. I see a County Judge .Vloore. ■ 

county, has got to handing hli j 

decisions "down,” Down to what depths ' 
does he mean? I know one Judge (?) ' 
•Moore, and am gla.l l don't know any 
more like him, but if there Is in this un- . 
fortunate Kentucky anytning lower. In a 
judicial sense, than he is, God help this i 
unfortunate Kentucky. . 

1 see the f.ouisvlllc Times quotes "from I 
Scripture" the theory that "it is b.'tier ' 
that 99 guilty men escape than the nn. I 
Innocent man should suffer." I fear the 
Times editor is no better versed in Bible i 
scripture than he is In the ethics of po- I 
lit leal honesty. However. If I should be j 
mistaken, I hope he will point to the book, i 
chapter and ver.se from which he professes ' 
to quote. GEORGE GATLING. 1

perseverance have won the victory. Now 
it is not necessary to play only the modern 
popular music to make a concert a paying

phony orchestras draw Just as large crowds 
as military bauds. I would have no more 
attempted to make a tour through the 
Souch flfteeti years ago with a symphony

would have attendeJ the concerts. But it 
is different now.

we will have a large and appreciative au-

M’MASTERS’ NEW VOLUME. 



Iil|[ KM mo. 



Knights of the Royal Arch to Cele- 
brate First Anniversary. 



Prof. McMasters has completed the 
fifth volume of his “History of the Peo- 
pl(? of the United State.-;.” It deals with 
that period of our history Irom 1S2! to | 
1830. It was In many respects u forma- 
tive period. It marked to the re-align- ■ 
ment of political forces, the increasing j 
sectional aspects of the slavery question, 
the beginning of the railroad system, the 
mulllnllcatlon of mechanical inventions, 
the ,*estward march of ompirc, the set- 
tlement of Texas, and the acquisition of 
Oregon. Manifestly, this l.s a period of 
profound concern to all observers who 
can see with the heart of things; to nil 
men who know' that the nation’s progress 
is not neces.sarily marked by the boating 
of the drum.s ami the roar of cannon. J 
If Is a period which has great aitrac- I 
tion to Pr »f. McMasters. who prefers to ! 
record events as he finds them written 
in the dnliy annals of an industrious 
people, leaving the Imaginative conslrtic- ! 
tion. the philosophical dcdu ’tions \o other \ 
writers of hl.story. The vain.* of Prof, i 
McMasters’ method is widely recognized. [ 
He deals realistically and dispassionately 
with the events in his story, if. indeed, j 



he ever thinks of It as a story. One sees 
in these pages a somewhat dreary life 
portrayed; a life of hardship, a life lack- 
ing color, or sentiment, barren in most 
of its aspects, and devoid of passion, 
void of delight, the men like dumb driven 
cattle, the cattle silent and hard as a 
granite mountain side. It is u true pLc- 
ture, no doubt, but it Is not a llfe-likc 
piclure. It is instructive, but It is not 
vl^d. It enlightens the mind as to many of 
thiTtietails of life in America, but under 
it all one cannot catch the spirit of im- 
prisoned humanity, or humanity of any 
kind. It Is fate w’ithout fate’s purpose 
or inspiration. It is real, but not the 
actual force which has transformed a 
continent. These men are all faulty as 
they are portrayed, but they had great 
virtues, too. Ours is a nation of hard 
working men. but of men who worked out 
their own salvation in fear and trem- 
bling. 

In all this research, In all this laborious 
gathering together of the IncldentH of 
cvers’day Bfe, there is lackii'g the power 
of the poet essential to the history that 
is to endure. What material here for a 
great epic for the Odyssey of humanity. 

This fifth volume brings us . down 
to 133). The author now refers to the, 
seventh as the completing volume; in 
the fourth he fixed the sixth as the con- 
cluding volume. Prof. McMasters need 
not restrict himself; the theme will 
excuse any extension. Only the won- 
der grows that as he passes from one 
great incident to another from the revo- 
lution to the constitution; from the con- 
stitution to our second war with Eng- 
land; from the war of 1812 to the enumer-

NEW NOVEL BY ROBERT GRANT. 



When Judge Robert Grant turned his 
literary talents toward a fecund field In 
sociology and W'roie "The Reflections of a 
Married Man." "The Opinions of a 
Philosopher." and "The Art of Living” it 
was generally supposed and regretted by 
the admirers of Mr. Grant’s novel, "An 
Average Man." that. In spite of sketches 
like "A Bachelor’s Christmas," which 
fell from his pen from time to time, he 
had forsaken elaborate and .sustained Ac- 
tion. This is not the case, however. Tho 
manuscript of a new' novel of American 
life, entitled "Unleavened Bread." has 
just been received from him by Charles 
Scribner’s Sons. It will be published 
about the middle of April. The w'ork, 
which is believed by the publishers to 
be one of great merit, deals graphically 
with modern social conditions, and their 
effect upon the character of the heroine 
in town, city and metropolitan life. Tho 
treatment, at once serious and satirical, 
given to the story, which, in Itself, ap- 
pears to be of ab.sorbing interest, will 
quite likely provoke wide discussion.

‘■THE GENTLEMAN 

FROM INDIANA.” 

This book is beginning to sell. Thirty 
thousand copies liave been disposed of, 
but that many should have been sold In . 
Indiana alone. It l.s a modern story, not 
medieval, and, say what we will, we 
know modern life better than life in the 
middle ages. It is full of familiar fdc- 
tures. the lecture, tin* elrpus. Mie flat, 
uninteresting town, which becomes inter- 
esting beeau.se hiimun, when we got on 
the inside. It Is at once realistic In its 
surroundings, and ronianilc in ii.s incl- 
dent.s; so is life. It is vivid. It is bright. 

It is readable throughout. If you have 
not road this story get It and read it. Is 
it a great novel? No; rather is— but it is 
not nece.' 8ury to make n test of popular 
novels w'hieh arc not great. The great 
novels are the novels w'e fall asleep over, 
ami then lake up again. The poor novels 
are the novels wc fall asleep over, and 
never take ui» again. The really reada- 
ble novel, tin* pleasing and at times de- 
lightful novel is the novel we do not fall 
asleep over. No one ever fell asleep in 
company with "The Gentleman from In- 
dii'.na."

WHUSB TROOPS ARE THESE? 



The annouticemeat comes from Frankfort that the government of the pre- 
tenders has been appealed to to protect the courts from that mythical mountain 
mob. which, it is said, is to return, pending the trial of the men accused of 
complicity in the murder of Mr. Goebel. 

How soon one's opinions change position. In 1896, when the officers of both 
bouses of the Legislature appealed to Governor Bradley for protection from the 
toughs and roughs haunting the lobbies, and from the mobs walking the streets, 
the Governor promptly responded, restoring order and securing to every member 
of the Legislature a free exercise of his duties as a representative of his con- 
stituents. 

But at once the Democratic leaders raised a howl. They denounced the Gov- 
ernor from every street corner. \ committee was appointed under a resolution 
accusing the Governor of misconduct in office, with instructions to devise some 
punishment to fit the crime. 

Again, in 1899, pending the election in the city of Louisville, the Governor of 
Kentucky was requested by the citizens of Louisville to call out the militia, in 
order to maintain the public peace, to overawe the outlaws and insure the safety of 
the lives and properly of our people. 

This step was openly denounced in all the organs of the conspirators. The 
Governor was referred tb as a usurper and a traitor, and his act was made the 
basis of a petition before the Returning Board to throw out the vote of Louis- 
ville entirely, and on this protext the vote of Louisville was thrown out. 

Again, immediately following the assassination of Mr. Goebel, the Governor of 
Kentucky ordered out the troops for the protection of the property of the State 
and for the maintenance of peace at the capital. Again he was denounced in 
terms more vigorous than polite. The presence of the military seemed to be a red 
rag to these rebellious Democrats. .MI kinds of accusations were made against a 
Governor who would dare to parade troops in the streets of the capital. 

All of thene instances refer Oo periods during which the Republican Governor 
had control of the troops, and they were under the orders of the Reptlblicans. 
Now that there is a gentleman at Frankfort claiming to be both a Democrat and 
a Governor, he seizes the first opportunity for ordering out the military. There 
aeema to be some fear that Mr. Campbell and some of his remarkable witnesses 
may be made an object of attack from the men of the mountains. We do not be- 
lieve It. We doubt if Mr. Campbell or his witnesses believe it. Nevertheless, for a 
provocation far slighter than in any case we have named abowe. arms have been 
brought In large quantities to Frankfort, and the capital once more is to be put 
under the control of the military; in this case, under the control of a Democratic 
Governor and a Democratic Adjutant General. 

Upon previous occasions the Democratic Judges absolutely refused . to hold 
court In a house guarded by military. Now the spokesmen of Democratic Judges 
are clamoring for the military. 

If the military is expected merely to maintain the peace, we fall to see what 
harm can come of it. There is no danger whatever of military domination in the 
State of Kentucky; the danger is all In the ottaes- direction. One usurpation has 
followed another. One act of aggression has been followed by others, until we 
have already at Ffonkfort a political oligarchy, one department of State perform- 
ing the functions of three. 

The trial in Frankfort today is one of supreme importance to every Ken- 
tuckian — one of profound interest to every citizen of the republic. All of the ordi- 
nary provisions of the constitution and bill of rights have been trampled under 
foot heretofore. It is to be decided today whe'.her or not the guarantees of life, 
liberty and property supposed to be embodied in our constitution are mere "bar- 
ren idealities” or Whether they are living actualities. It is well, in the decision of 
A question so momentous, that the Judges, lawyers, witnesses and defendants 
should be assured of absolute bodily safety. If this Is the purpose, or whatever the 
purpose. If this be the effect, of calling out the military, we are certain that 
tkert is not a single man in Kentucky who will protest against it. 

Here’s looking to you. Gen. Oastleman; may nothing be done at Frankfort to 
bring shame to your military record, nor humiliation to the State. 

, I 

THE CRIMINAL SITUATION IN THE STATE. 

About all that Is known concerning the so-called confession of Wharton 
Golden is that he has been found in bad company. 

The statements made in both the yellow Journals at Cincinnati and Louis- 
ville are speculative, or may be born rather of the wish than the knowledge of 
the attorneys for the assassins of character. Experience in crimiual practice 
Joined to a newspaper partnership and backed by 8100,000 will accomplish 
much, but we belie've that in open court, before all the people of the State, the 
diabolical conspiracy to involve large numbers of political opponents in the as- 
sassination of William Goebel will fail. ' 

.Mr. Golden has not made yet any public statement. X confession implies not 
merely knowledge, but criminal participation. It may be that Golden was in the 
plot to assassinate Goebel, but until the proof Is stronger than a mere assertion 
of the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Courier-Journal, we decline to accept it as 
true. 

"Ah! there is the register of the hotel, where, according to the organs of the 
Democratic newspapers, a conference was held at London, at which the murder 
was decided on!" 

Possibly, but according to ordinary, rules of conduct, it is not probable that 
red-banded mountaineers plotting assassination would gather in iarge numbers at 
a hotel and all register. 

The gathering at the hotel of prominent Republicans, the registering bof the 
names of those present, the apparent publicity of the whole proceedings, indicate 
that the object was legitimate and reasonable and not murderous. 

The truth is, the Golden episode grows a little silly, and indicates a deliberate 
effort to build up monstrous accusations on an absurd foundation. It is Just such 
a story as might have been predicted could easily have been constructed by a 
conscienceless attorney and a reckless newspaper reporter stimulated by a re- 
ward of five thousand dollars. 

Let the people watch the kaleidoscopic changes in all these proceedings, be- 
ginning with Whittaker's arrest and including Campbell's assertion that it would 
take 3,000 men to arrest a colored barber in Beattyvllle. 

The Incidents change daily, hourly; the one end in view, which is by fear, 
intimidation, violence, the perversion of law, abuse of power, contempt for the con- 
stitution and a corruption fund of 8100,000, to punish the innocent and let the 
guilty escape. 

It is a deliberate, a desperate attempt at Judicial assassination. 

These malignant devils know the assassin, or they have lied times innumer- 
able. If they know him they have purposely refrained from arresting him, with 
tho devilish purpose of involving some active political leaders in an act whiclL if 
exposed, would leave the innocent unharmed. 

'The conspiracy grows apace. It will be followed step by step and its hid- 
eousness revealed in all its abomination. 

Before these arrests and alleged confessions, before all these proceedings in 
court, which have brought such shame to the State, Gen. Buckner foretold the con- 
sequences of the passage of this act appropriating 8100,000 as a war fund on char, 
acter. He referred to the story of Titus Oates, and the parallel becomes clearer 
each day. 

But It will fall in its consummation. Peirjury can be exposed. Intimidation 
caft be destroyed. iTerrorism can be dissipated. Returning reason will stop the 
progress of organized criminals.   

^e people of Kentucky see the gulf of dishonor opening before them. The 
recent degradation of court processes to the uses of a hateful faction in politics, an- 
imated by revenge and greed, is an object lesson written in the darkest colors. 
The people of Kentucky, proud even in their humiliation, demand fair play for all 
men accused. They will have in Kentucky no "lettres de cachet;" no Bastlle; 
no secret execution; no threats to Intimidate witnesses. 

Has Goldon been threatened? Has Golden been told that only confession would 
save him from arrest? Has he been driven from Frankfort by suggestions of 
danger? Has he been followed by the evil spirits of Journalism and the lower 



deeps? If so, turn the full light of day on all these transactions and bring 16 
justice the guilty, that the Innocent may be vindicatoj. 

That, men of Kentucky, is the purpose of the movement in Louisville to see 
that counsel is secured for all the victims of secret judicial processes; counsel for 
all men accused of crimes of which they know nothing; counsel for the poor and 
the friendless, and Justice — Justice — nothing less than Justice — for tho man who 
would kill from ambush or who. by means of the tricks of the law, would destroy 
the reputations of political enemies, and sond to prison men obnoxious to the 
reigning dynasty. 

This movement has been put in charge of an oxecutive committee of five — Col. 
John H. Ward, Col. Andrew Cowan, Col. Morris Belknap, Mr. Donald McDonald, 
and Mr. Richard W. Knott. Capt. John Leathers is the Treasurer, and contribu- 
tions may be sent to the Treasurer or to any member of the Executive Commit- 
tee. ' 



VIOLATION OF THE ELECTION LAWS. 



It will not do for any man guilty of vio- 
lation of the election laws in 1898 or 1899 
to assume that because they have not yet 
been arraigned that they are to go scot 
free. The prosecution of these cases has 
but begun. ' Some of them will be tried in 
the State courts and evidence produced 
which is absolutely conclusive. 

In the Federal court a number of indict- 
ments have been filed away and a tew have 
been dismissed. It is well to bear in mind 
the difference between these two proceed- 
l::gs. The rases dismissed are supposed to 
be of minor Importance, or else to lack suf- 
ficient evidence to secure a conviction. The 
cases filed away arc held up; they arc not 
dismissed by any means; they are simplfP 
put aside for the time being in order (o 
concentrate attention upon other cases of 
greater importance. The conspirators 
against free suffrage are beginning to re- 
alize that there are certain laws upon the 
statute books which they supposed had 
by neglect been repealed. On the contrary, 
they are In force and the penalties which 
they carry are sufficient to mak^ examp’es 
of men who, by overconfidence, have been 
betrayed into illegal acts. 

These Federal court cases are not cases 
of persecution; they are cases in which the 
evidence presented is of the most startling 
character. It is true that they relate alone 
to the violation of the rights of the negro 
voter, but they are violations proven by 
the evidence of the white witnesses, proven 
by men of the highest character, proven so 
that there is no room for doubt that great 
outrages have been committed, and that 
the rights of the negro voter have been de- 
stroyed, this destruction undermining the 
whole system of elections in Kentucky. 

The second trial of Crites, Mullens. O'Neil 
and Locke will take place within ten days. 
Additional witnesses to those secured be- 
fore will appear, and the public will get 
no more Instructive lesson than is carried 
by a true statement of how elections are 
conducted at West and Green. It has b’en 
assumed for years that these outrages could 
go on unchecked and the men guilty of 
them have been held up as heroes in the 
circles of the lawless, and have been re- 
warded by special davors from the bene- 
f'claries of their crimes. Now they must 
prepare to pay the penalty. Such occur- 
rences as the people are familiar with at 
M'est and Green are not tsolate-1; they 
form a part of a conspiracy against the 
public morality. They Imply the co-opera- 
tion of others beyond these tour prisoners, 
and the public is prepared for sensational 
developments before this trial closes. 



companies, as this paragraph from the 
Journal shows: 

"Jackson A. -Nichols and George Brower, 
both of Brooklyn, were assaulted and rob- 
bed of their watches in front of 140 Park 
row late Saturday night by a crowd of 
toughs. Only one of the highwaymen, 
Robert Fair, was caught. .Magistrate 
Brann held him in 82,500 bail." 

If any of these crimes had been com- 
mitted in the mountains of Kentucky — 
and this is Impossible — our Northern ex- 
changes would have pointed to them as 
exhibitions of total depravity; they pass 
s’-nrst unn oticed in the daily record of 
ji uiiaUelphia, New York or Chicago. 



CRIMINALS CONSTITUTE 

A PRIVILEGED CLASS 



Laws are not made for the criminals, but 
for the taxpayers. We have an expensrlve 
police force, but when complaint is made 
of disorderly bouses, of gambling hells, of 
lottery shops, of poolrooms, the complain- 
ant is advised to go before the grand Jury. 

He goes, confiding soul. The grand Jury 
then sends for the policemen and the po- 
licemen declare they know nothing about 
the details, and no indictments are found. 

In the meantime, we wish to recall pub- 
lic attention to the statement made and a 
promise recorded by Zach Phelps and Aa- 
ron Kohn. 

In open court'they asked that their clients 
bo not punished, as they intooded to go 
out of business. "We know.” said these at- 
torneys for tho criminal classes, “we know 
when the Mayor and the Judge of this 
court unite in an order to stop gambling, 
stop It must.” 

At tho time the Evening Post called at- 
tention to this statement and remarked 
that if there ever was any gambling in 
Louisville it would be because either the 
Mayor or Judge Barker failed to co-operate 
with tho other in enforcing the laws. 

Gambling today goes on in all its forms; 
who is responsible. Mr. Kohn? Who is re- 
sponsible, Mr. Phelps? Is it the Mayor? 
Is it Judge Barker? 



THE lawless north. 



First as a diversion from troubles at 
home, and then ns a means of instructing 
our Northern critics, we turn occasionally 
to the news columns of our Northern ex- 
changes. We tire reading sermons of vari- 
ous degrees of stupidity concerning crime 
in Kentucky, and break the monotony by 
pondering over the unnumbered offenses of 
our fellow countrymen. 

Women and children are the special vic- 
tims of the Northern brutes, as our list to- 
day will show. The first story is told 
to the New Y'ork Journal by John Brill. 
Here it is: 

"Mrs. Caroline Porter, a woman, child- 
less, and with an antipathy against little 
children, emptied the contents of a boiler 
filled with boiling water upon Innocent 
children. As a result my little daughter 
died after untold agony. Two other chil- 
dren received injuries. State Coroner Mix 
held a secret inquest and pronounced it 
(the scalding) an accident, although there 
were several witnesses to brove that she 
(Mr*. Porter) did not tip over the water 
accidentally, but purposely.” 

The second story comes from Newark, 
N. J., under same date, March 18, and is 
as follows : 

"Careful investigation today by the 
friends of Miss Erns Giles, who disappear- 
ed from here January 29, with Dr. George 
W. Mueller, has convinced them beyond 
the shadow of a doubt that the body of 
the young woman recently found in the 
nets of fishermen in the Magotshy river, 
off the shore of .Anne Arundel county, 
Maryland, is hers.” 

Chicago, on the same date, presents this 
claim to consideration as the center of 
crime: 

".V shocking double tragedy was dis- 
covered shortly after midnight this morn- 
ing, in the Vendome Hotel, on South Hal- 
stead street. 

"There, in a room on the second fioor, 
were found the dead bodies of a man and 
a girl, who came to the hotel yesterday 
afternoon, registering as Mr. and Mrs. S. 
Cohen. 

"The girl bad three bullet wsounds in her 
breast, and the man bad shot himself in 
the mouth with the revolver, which ho 
had used in taking the life of his com- 
panion." 

In the North tho thieves are as bold 
and as active as the murderers of women, 
and in Philadelphia they even rob the 
churches, as this story from the Record 
shows: 

“Thieves on Saturday night entered the 
Catholic churches in different sections of 
the city and robbed the contribution boxes 
of money given as films for the poor. .At 
the Church of the Epiphany, Twelfth and 
Jackson streets, the thief secured entrance 
by carefully removing a valuable stained 
glass window and then rifled eight boxes 
of their contents, estimated at more than 
8100.” 

In New York the thieves hunt in large 



AVe suggest to the Democrats that they 
call the State convention to meet at Mu- 
sic Hall, lA uisvllIe; that they appoint 
the old Committee on Resolutions, the old 
Committee on Credentials; that they 
name Redwine for Temporary Chairman, 
Kedwiue for Permanent Chairman, and 
Redwine for Lieutenant Governor. Mr. 
Beckham, we believe, desires to run for 
Governor, and will be permitted to do eo, 
as Mr. Justus Goebel is not eligible. 



Dr. McCormack was not present at the 
autopsy said to have been held to deter- 
piine the course of the bullet which killed 
Mr. Goebel. Dr. Vance was not permit- 
ted to take part in it. McCormack, Vance 
and Hume were the chief medical and 
surgical attendants, and by all rules of 
medical ethice should have conducted the 
autopsy. Who did? 



Nearly two months has Whittaker been 
in Jail without examination, without ball, 
without testimony, and without warrant of 
law. So long that be has been almost for- 
gotten, like some of the victims of the 
old Bastile in Paris. We imagine the 
Democrats will not find the Bastile a pop- 
ular issue in Kentucky. 



The mistaken, yet papular, theory, that 
“the good die young” and that "death 
loves a shining mark,” is what makes so 
many cowards in the world. Nothing of 
the Sort. Death is no respecter of persons, 
and in regular attendance on his daily 
rounds is apt to pick up Just anything 
that comes along. 



The Owensboro Messenger denounces 
every honest Democrat who is manly and 
patriotic as one who has "landed outside 
the breastworks.” The breastworks con- 
stitute the sole end and aim of the Mes- 
senger man's aspirations. Public p«p Is 
his watchword and reply from beginning 
to end. 



Colson repudiates all the knowledge at- 
tributed to him by the hired attorneys of 
the conspirators. Coombs answers Camp- 
bell most effectively, and GoJden is yet 
to hear from. Somehow these stories do 
not stand long enough to earn a fee. 



In substance this is the Owen.sboro 
Messenger's daily proclamation: "Be all 
our alms and all our toils (no matter how 
the rest works) to seize the pie — the offi- 
cial spoils, and hold on the breastworks!” 



Some empty cars rattling over the Ken- 
tucky Central affrighted the souls of con- 
spirators at Frankfort, and at once the 
troops were called out. 'Tis conscience 
makes cowards of them all. 



Hurrah for Rodney Haggard! We do 
not know Just what he has been doing, 
but w'e know be has bean doing it about 
right. 



Another day has passed and no more 
confessions. What’s the matter with 
Campbell's stenographer? 






Social Notes. 






Whiteson’s 



An aDDouncement was made last even'* 
ing which surprised boih their families 
and friends, when Miss Bessie Snyder and 
Mr. Major Guthrie announced that they 
were married in Jeffersonville last Au- 
gust. The young couple had been devoted 
to each other for some time, and their 
marriage was regarded as a probability, 
but no one had any knowledge that the 
ceremony had already been performed. 
Miss Snyder Is the daughter of Mr. George 
R. Snyder, the well-known tobacconist, 
and Mr. Guthrie is the son of Mr. James 
G. Guthrie, of the Chilton-Gutbrie Com- 
pany. They are both charming young 
people, and have a large circle of friends. 
They will make their home for the present 
at the borne of Mr. Snyder, 1041 Fourth 
avenue. 

Mr. Neville Hestor has returned from a 
several months’ slay in Texas. 

Miss Mary Thomasson, who has been in 
Cincinnati with friends for the past four 
months, has returned home. 

Mr. and Mrs. Philip T. Allen are spend- 
ing a few days at their country place near 
Livingston, in Rockcastio county. 

Miss Selma Heilman was guest of honor 
at an entertainment given last evening by 
her host and hostess, and M»*j. Jacob 
Block, who gave a reception in her honor 
from 8 to 11 o’clock. Their home was ar- [ I 
ranged with elaborate decorations of flow- 
ers and evergreens. The hall and parlors

“OH, THE SHAMROCK.” 

Letter to the Editor of the London Times, 
The Irish soldiers of the Queen will re- 
joice that upon St. Patrick's day they are 
to wear, as a distinction, a sprig of 
shamrock to commemorate their ;al- 
lantry during the recent battles In South 
Africa. 

As Thomas Moore is not so much read 
now as he used to be, it may not be out 
of place to remind your English and 
Scotch readers that this "triple grass” 
was claimed by Valor. Love and Wit, as 
appears from one of the Irish melodies; 
Says Valor: "See. 

They spring for me. 

Those leafy gems of morning!” 

Says Love: "No. no, 

For me they grow. 

My fragrant path addPhlng!" 

But Wit perceives 
The triple leaves, 

And cries: "Oh. do not sever 
A type that blends 
Three god-llke frlemls. 

Love, Valor. Wit. forever!” 

The last three lines contain a splendid 
allegory, which far outshines everything 
else that has been written On "the green, 
Immortal shamrock.” 



REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. 

There are lots of hogs that are good 
church members. 



To be a real success in the world a 
man has got to make the world resent 
his being In It. 

A man is never very mad at a woman 
when he Is willing to tell her what he 
is mad at. 

A woman can never carry out her reso- 
lution to stuib another woman It she 
meets her when she has on her new hat. 

Every man ought to lay down the rule 
that he won't dig up his wife's flower 
beds till she lets him wear bis spring 
overcoat.— New York Press. 



POSSIBLY. 



Fuddy — You never can tell anything 
about the weather. At the time of the flood, 
you know, it rained forty days and forty 
nights. 

Duddy— Yes; and I'll bet if there had 
been a weather bureau in existence at 
that time it would have prophesied fair 
weather, or at least clearing every morning.

BISHOP POTTER’S VIEWS BEFORE AND 

AFTER HIS TRIP TO THE PHILIPPINES. 



Before. 

"By a sharp bargain that little com- 
pany of men in Paris has purchased the 
Philippine Islands, with their 12,000,000 
souls. But any man with intellect 
should be ashamed to affirm that be- 
cause we have bought tbe islands we 
have possession. It is a quesllon If we 
ever get possession.” — Bishop Potter, 
January 11. 1899, in an address in Me- 
morial Hail, Brooklyn, to the Clvitas 
Club. 

"When a nation forgets the sober 
promises it has made it hae struck tbe 
first knell of its decay. We are pledg- 
ed by the most solemn obligations to 
sustain freedom. We ought to go back 
and wriggle our own necks into the 
English yoke and see bow we like it.'* 
— Bishop Potter, January 11, 1899. 

"Now. it would seem at least rea- 
sonable that the conquering or pur- 
chasing republic should inaugurate its 
relations to the new possessions by 
some conference with Us dominant peo- 
ple. But no. Its first word is subjec- 
tion. its first demand surfender. Its 
first, second and third conditions are: 
We will recognize nobody: we will treat 
with nobody; we alone will dictate all 
the terms. • • • 

"Let us suppose, however, that this 
Republic has crushed out the last em- 
ber of rebellion and stifled every faint- 
est note of protest. The old revolu- 
tionary idea survives, the old passion 
for freedom wakes anew, and so the 
new possessions must be vigorously gov- 
erned . "—Bishop Potter at St. Paul, 
Minn., October 10, 1899. 



After, 

I "That (bis former antagonism to the 
' McKinley policy of imperialism) has now 
become a purely academic matter. I con- 
! fees to saying that I have put it on the 
shelf. It is perfectly idle now to Unger 
I on that discussion. • • • 

1 "The military operations in the Phll- 
I ippines will one of these days be shown 
I to be above all praise. » • • 

1 "If the Philippines were given a civil 
‘ government tomorrow we could not take 
away the soldiers. There is bound to 
be a military government there for some 
I time, and it is the best kind of govern- 
I ment for the Islands. • • • 
j “We have got those islands and we 
I have got to hold on to them. It Is too 
I late now to get rid of them. The mat- 
I ter of their acquisition is now an aca- 
demic question purely. • • • 

; "They (Agulnaldo’s friends) are sat- 
I isfled there can be no successful Issue of 
I Agulnaldo’s undertaking. • • • 
j “Tho btUer class of Filipinos are sat- 
isfled that American occupation means 
I increased prosperity and have ceased to 
I raise objections. 

I "They appear to understand that there 
I are no men In tbe islands who could 
) give them, in the way of government, 

‘ what we can give them.” — Bishop Potter 
to a reporter of tbe World.

How can we e’er forget thy pare

A LONE ROBBER 
HOLDS UP A TRAIN. 



HE SECURED TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS IN CASH AND A GOLD 
WATCH NEAR HAMBUR G, lA., THIS MORNING. 



ST. JOSEPH, Mo., March 23. — A lone robber, wearing a false face, with a 
black mustache painted on the mask, held up the southbound Kansas City, St. Jo- 
seph & Council Biu&s train, four miles south of Hamburg, la., at 1:30 o’clock 
this morning. The train was in charge of Conductor Billy MOee. Flagman 
Moore was first accosted by the robber at the rear end of the train. Using Moore 
as a shield, the robber went through the sleeper and chair car, getting J200 in cash 
and a gold watch. He pulled the bell cord, and when the train slowed down, jump- 
ed off and escaped in the darkness. The robbery was reported to the Burlington 
goueiral offices here from Langdon, the first station south of Hamburg. 

HUNDRED POISONED 
AT A CHURCH DINNER. 



CHICKEN USED IN MAKING SALAD WAS DISEASED, AND SEVERAL 
OF THE VICTIMS WILL DIE-TWO DEAD IN 
INDIANA TOWN. 



LIMA, O., March 23. — The poisoning of 
about 100 people Idst night at a dinner 
given by the Woman's Home Missionary 
Society of Trinity M. E. Church, at the 
residence of Mr. and Mrs. William .VIc- 
Comb, is more serious than was first sus- 
pected. Canned beans were thought to 
have been the cause, but it develops that it 
was diseased chicken which had been made 
into salad. 

One of the ladies who assisted in fur- 
nishing the chickens did not attend the 
dinner, but saved some of the meat for 
herself, and she was taken very seriously 
ill after eating it. A number of ladies 
and gentlemen are still in a precarious 



condition, and the Rev. Whitlock, pastor 
of the church, was taken ill while in the 
pulpit and had to be assisted home. It is 
feared there will be several deaths from 
the effects of thj poisoning. 

TRICHINOSIS KILLED TWO. 



VALPARAISO, Ind., March 23 .— Emma 
Lohse, aged seventeen, died of trichinosis 
from eating pork. This is the second 
death in the family, and two others are 
affected. Jacob Slevers and two sons, who 
ate some of the same meat, and four mem- 
bers of the Hahmann family are very low 
and ihelr recovery is doubtful. 



MR. BECKHAM’S APOLOGY 
FOR CALLING OUT TROOPS 



Evening Post Special Service. 

FRANKFORT, Ky., March 23.— Mr. 
Beckham's apology for calling out the 
troops is embodied in the following "ex- 
planation.” which was Issued by the young 
man last night: ' 

"To the people o! Kentucky: In the pres- 
ent crisis which exists in our State, I feel 
It my duty to explain to you my position 
and to outline the policy which I Intend 
to pursue in the earnest effort to reetore 
peace,, quiet and order to our Common- 
wealth. It was the policy of my distin- 
guished and lamented predecessor to con- 
duct this contest which has so much agi- 
tated our people in a way to commend bis 
course to all law-abiding and conserva- 
tive people of the State. That policy I 
have, to the best of my ability, also pur- 
sued, and Intend to continue in the same 
line. In calling out the militia to protect 
the courts in Frankfort, 1 wish to sjy 
that no one is more averse to military rule 
than 1 am. I believe that it should be 
the last resort that any official should use, 
and I lament the necessity that requires 
it at this t\mc. As your chief executive 
it is my desire and intention always to 
rely more upon the law than upon the 
bayonet, and I prefer to be supported more 
by the strong common sense and patriot- 
ism of our law-abiding people than by any 
military power whatever. Every honest 
citisen should submit without hesitation 
to the control of the constituted authori- 
ties and to the courts, the great safeguard 
of our liberties. 

"According to law the civil authorities 
of Franklin county have presented to me 
a . statement of facts which shows that a 
condition of lawlessness is threatened 



here with which they are unable to deal, 
and they have called upon me for assist- 
ance. I have, in compliance with their 
call, ordered here certain State tVoops to/ 
place themselves completely under the 
authority of the Sheriff of the county, 
with instructions that they shall aajist 
him in protecting the court of this coun- 
ty from threatened intimidation as well as 
to protect the prisoners who are tried by 
that court on tomorrow. 

"These troops shall be strictly under the 
control of the civil authorities in preserv- 
ing order and protecting the dignity of 
the court, that justice may be done to all 
parties. I regret exceedingly the necessity 
that requires such action and that there 
should bo any who would seek to interfere 
with the action of the judicial tribunals 
in our State, but the condition exists and 
I must meet it. 

"When the situation is such in your capi- 
tal city that the judges in your courts 
and other officials need personal protection 
from bodily harm and threatened Inter- 
ference with their action, then I deem it 
my duty, as Governor of the Common- 
wealth, to give them such protection as 
they may need. Such Is t6e situation here 
now, and I intend that so far as I have 
the power to protect the courts, in my 
earnest efforts to uphold the law and to 
protect the constituted tribunals, I call 
upon the good and law-abiding people of 
our Commonwealth to aid and assist me 
not by physical force, but by moral sup- 
port. 

"We have placed our cause in the bands 
of the law and we must continue to rely 
upon the law. Let no act of violence or 
lawlessness be committed anywhere, and 
let our people, who have ‘shown such pa- 
tience and conservatism heretofore, con- 
limie to show it. My gi-eat trust and re- 
liance Is in the strong common sense and 
integrity of the people of our State and 
trusting In that I believe that out of our 
present difficulty there will soon come 
peace, order and restoration of the law. 

"J. C. W. BECKHAM, 

"Governor of Kentucky.”

NEWSY NOTES OF THE TRACK. 








•HE Soubhern racing 
scene will soon be 
transferred from 
New Orleans t o 
LUtie Rock, and al- 
ready many of ibe 
horses at the Crest 
cent City have been 
shipped to the Ar- 
kansas capital. The 
meeting begins at 
Clifton Park on 
Monday next, and there promises to be 
a good program. While the best horses 
lu the South are not going to be there, 
enough are entered in the stakes to make 
the sport decidedly interesting. 

The Turf Coagre*»s Stake is going to 
be Uollj contested. Yesterday Griftiu de- 
cided that he would ship Knight Ban- 
neret and start him in the event. This 
nmkem a good held, for to -win he will 
have to defeat (he Conqueror, Dram- 

burg, Capron and a half doisen others of 
about the same class. Xo one knows 
•what Dramburg Is going to do, but as an 
outsider he seems to have a chance. The 
Conqueror $dld not do well in the Crci:- 
cent City Derby, probably for the reason 
that he did not like the heavy going, 
and h« may improve on a fast track. In 
any event be has shown that he is 
not ot Derby class, and he will haidly 
Biart hi the Memphis event. 

Knight 6anneret made a poor showing 
at New Orleans, and does, not seem to be 
of a euperior order. However, there may 
he excusea for thie colt. He may have 
been out of condition and not up to the 
bruising race against such good ones as 
Kidney Lucas. Prince of Veronia and F. 
^y. Brode. The presence of this colt in 
the Turf Congress Stake has changed the 
betting somewhat. Previously it had 
been conceded that tbe race was between 
The Conqueror and Dramburg for fust 
money, but now that Griffin has deter- 
mined to put Knight Banneret into It, a 
different state of affairs is presented. This 
colt won several good races at New Or- 
igans, and shows that he has speed, even 
(hough he did not show it in bis last race. 

The Little Rock meeting, of course, will 
be equal to that of Nashville, but it will 
he of especial interest here, because there 
are three possible Kentucky Derby starters 
lu It, and they will illustrate to the 
betting public vrhat they can do. In addi- 
tion, tbe Little Rock officials have work- 
ed hard to make this meeting a suc- 
cess, and they deserve to succeed. The 
horses there have got fast early train- 
ing ,and it is a common thing there to 
see miles made in as good as 1:46. The 
old platers are showing up well. Dutch 
Comedian did five furlongs in 1:05 very 
nicely yesterday, and did not turn a hair, 
while Robert Bonner is said to have 
worked a half in 0:48'/fe- Rose Bud ie^ 
claimed to have negotiated five furlongs 
la 0:5u^, but this Is hardly probable, 
find the Memphis pipe smoker- may be 
down there fixing up figures for the 
track. Ho may be all right, but If be is 
be certainly has a remarkably slow watch. 

There Is no jockey on the turf better 
liked In Louisville than Charley Thorpe, 
and the news that be will probably never 
he able to get into tbe saddle again will 
be received here with sorrow. His shoul- 
der blade was broken by a fall from a 
horse, and it may be that he has sus- 
tained Internal injuries. If such Is tbe 
rase, the racing days of Charley Thorpe 
are over, and the grim reaper may set 
him down for all time. 

In tbe handicap at New Orleans yester- 
day Sidney Lucas was a disappointment. 
Boland was on tbe favorite. Ed Oartland. 
hue be could do no better than third, and 
Compensation, tbe second choice, at 4 to 
3. landed the event In hollow style. Lucas, 
with 112 up and Vittatoe in the saddle, 
finished absolutely last. He refused posi- 
tively to run. 

Ethel Collins has already been engaged 
by a well-known young newspaper man 
for the Gentleman’s Cup race here, and 
if the youngster puts up a good ride it 
la very likely tbe race will go to Ethel. 

President Schulte has about twenty 
horses at the Downs. .Most of them are 
two-year-olds, but there are a lot of good 
ones in tbe bunch, and they have wintered 
well. 

W. Overton will not be shipped South 
to start In the Turf Congress Stakes at 
New Orleans. Schorr will not start him 
in tbe mud, as he does not like chat kind 
of going. 

Sam Phillips, tbe favorite for the Ten- 
nessee Derby. Is said to have been worked 
a mile at Memphis yesterday in 1:46. This 
may be true. 

Jockoy.s Spencer and Jenkins have reach- 
ed Hot Springs and are there getting into 
shape for the Little Rock meeting, where 
they will both ride. Spencer did remark- 



[ALL DOWN. 



What the Two Black Fighters Have 
Run Against. 



Ed Grlflin, a lightweight pugilist frotn 
Cincinnati, arrived in the city yesterday 
aud called at the office of the Evening 
Post. He had socn tbe challenge issued 
a few days ago by Lawrence Pot- 
tinger and Jimmy Ballinger, the col- 
ored scrappers who arc hunting 'trou- 
ble, mid said he was willing to accept 
both of them. “I am willing to meet both 
men In the same ring," he said, “and for- 
feit all the purse if I do not knock them 
both out inside of ten rounds. They may 
be fighters, but 1 am one. too, and I think 
I can turn the trick. If they will meet me 
at your office on Saturday afternoon at 3 
o'clock I will sign articles of agreement 
with them." 

Griffin is a rather nicy looking, well- 
dressed, quiet fellow, who seems to be very 
much in earnest, aud If Pottinger and Bal- 
linger will call here Saturday afternoon the 
sporting editor may be able to get them n 
match. There is no d.oubt but Potting' r 
is a good man, and if the mill is pulled off 
it will certainly be a good one. 



Tim Donahue Pays Tribute in His 
Own Style. 




l.M DONAHUE, the 
lanky catpher of the 
Chicago ' team, thus 
comments on Bid’s 
retirement; 

"Where can you 
find another man who 
laces ’em out year aft- 
er year, plays the bag 
to perfection and uses 
his think tank for the 
purpose that U was 

intended?" 

More choice language might have been 
used by ’Timothy, but It is doubtful if he 
could have been more expreeaive. Tbe 
long career of MePhee is a tribute to 
temperate habits. Since 1882 ,'VlcPhee ha.« 
been playing ball In Cincinnati, aud no 
one has over ehargetl him with staying 
up nights to ascertalu whether all lights 
were extinguished on time. He has taken 
care of himself and his work shows it. 
At no time during hie career did Me- 
Phee play more brilliantly than last sea- 
son. Many League stars commented on 
his work during the various series play- 
ed. Ed Delehanty said of MePhee, after 
’the latter hod gone Into short right field 
ou a hard run and scooped up a terrific 
grounder with his left hand; "It looks 
like Mac bad discovered the fountain of 
youth. He Is playing better than he did 
five years ago." 




"I do not see where this change of front 
in the plate makes much difference one 
way or the other," says .Mr. Tebeau. "It 
may help 'certain clubs that have left- 
handed hitters like us. when they go 
against lefi-handed pitchers, who are in- 
variably a bit wild. The southpaw is not 
clever of control, as a rule, and If we wait 
him out he will have to lay it over prop- 
erly. Thun he eannot usti his deadly 
curve so often. There is nothing so hard 
for a left-handed batter .ns to get up 
against a pitcher of his own persuasion 
who has a sharp curve. .After all. it is so 
much in favor ot the ’kilhogue’ hitter who 
seems to be king of the roost nowadays." 

"Whatever ability I may have as a 
pitcher,” sayS Cy Young, "comes almost 
entirely from my fast ball. I don’t think 
much of my curve, and I have no slow 
ball. My fast ball has a slight Jump or 
raise to it, and everyone h.ns told me that j 
It Is my best ball. It comes straight. | 
but Just beyond, about six feel In front j 
of the batter, it shools up a bit, maybe 
not more than one-quarter .Its diameter. \ 
but that is enough. It Is a very easy ball 
to throw. I use a free-arm movement 
with It and good sp-ed." 

"I sec my old battery partner, Ous 
Weybing, is gone with Hanlon," remark- 
ed Lave Cross yesterday. “He pitched fine 
ball last year, and will make a great rec- 






ord this season. Gus has been pitching 
major League ball for eighieeu years. 
When 1 first caught him he was two years 
older than I. He dropped out of sight 
for a year or two about 1896. When he 
came back he was two years younger than 
I. I wanted to know where he had 
dropficd the two years, and he said: ‘Down 
in the Texas League. Lave. Texas is the 
place that makes an old pitcher young.’ "

John T. Brush’s baseball essays on mat-

Pitcher M’lllls, of the Boston Club, has 
gone to Princeiton to coach the candidates 
for the Orange and^ Black teem- 

Says a baseball man on the Brooklyn 
Eagle: “That Brooklyn has more than kept 
pace with the strengthening process of 
the other club.s Is luaulfest. Its catching 
department is made up of the same two 
veterans who formed the appx of last 
year’s (.hampionsMp combination — Parrel 
aud McGuire — two backstops who combine 
all that is required of men in their posi- 
tions. To replace them in case of accident 
the club has the choice of three men — 
Steelman. Crlsham and Smith — three men 
who ore of the younger generation of 
clever catchers. 

Declares Catcher T. Donahue, of Chicago: 
"Probably that St. Louis bunch of catch- 
ers haven’t got a picnic with ‘Cy’ Young. 
Posvell and Cuppy, when the latter l.s in 
trim. It is all the time shoulder high 
coming to you with the spaed of a 'long 
Tom.’ What chance has a runner to sneak 
in an efctra base ou you? About one in a 
hundred. Why, it makes a good baserun- 
ner look like a selling plater hooked up 
with a lot of Derby winners. The ball 
loses no time in coming to you. You don’t 
have to pick the sphere out among the 
shoe laces or dig it out of the clay, slraighi- 
CTi up, find out where your runner is and 
then take aim. With those speedy boys 
your lam.ps are on the rtinner all the time, 
aud you got him sure, should be move."

LOUISVILLE’S ONE TIME PET 
WANTS TO FI6HT. 



His Bout with the Tenor from 
Brooklyn Will Be the First 
in Years. 



Tommy Warren, who used to register 
"of Louisville.” has signed to fight Terry 
McGovern before the Seaside Sporting 
Club on May 4. At one time Warren was 
the pride of Louisville, and tbe local 
sports swore by him. His great fight with 
Tommy Barnes, the Englishman, in which 
he fairly pounded the daylight out ot that 
once formidable but aged scrapper, won 
him renown. Then ho went against Pat- 
sy O’Leary, Denny .Me.Aulitfe’s feather- 
weight, and got tbe decision over the 
shoemaker because the latter thought he 
had the fight won, and jumped out of the 
ring. In reality, O’Leary had the best ot 
the battle, and would have won the deti- 
slon had he remained. 

Leaving Louisville Warren went to Tex- 
as, where he killed a man, and was sent 
to the penitentiary' for .seven years. He 
served his time, and since ■ his release 
nothing has been heard from him in pugil- 
istic circles. .At present he is In the army 
serving three years. He has placed him- 
self under the management of Tom 
O’Rourke and is fighting at 122 pounds. 
While Warren was a scientific fighter In 
his younger days, his blows alwpys lacked 
steam, and he seemed afraid ot getting bis 
pretty face spoiled. 



LOSE THEIR IDEAL 



Eastern Patrons Sore Over Loss of 
Umpire Lynch. 







HE turning down ot 
Umpire Tom Lynch 
was a severe blow to 
the garnet For over 
ten years Lynch has 
been considered the 
ideal umpire by East- 
ern people, and the 
West has not been 
slow to recognize his 
great worth as a fear- 
less official under all circumsianeee. There 
is but one first-class umpire now left on the 
stuff, for Euislie alone of recent umpires 
can hold a place with Lynch. The mag- 
nates made a grave mistake in leaving the 
New Britain man out of their list when 
they picked the staff for the coming sea- 
son. 

It is understood that Lynch was ready to 
start the season and finish the same, not- 
withstanding the report given out by Pres- 
ident N. E. A’oung that Lynch would only 
umpire when he pleasud. Tlie very fact 
that Lynch was Independent of the League 
should have helped his ease, for It Is Inde- 
pendent men the League should be on the 
lookout for. 

The pay of umpires is not In proportion 
to the salaries paid the players. Lynch and 
Emslic were ’.he highest-paid officials, and 
their salary was only $2,000. The other 
salaries range! from $1,400 to $!M)0, Con- 
nelly receiving the highest figure for a base 
umpire— $1,200. .Now that the men will 
have to work alone, they will expect 
a raise In salary, and will give President 
Young a good argument before he gets then- 
names to contracts. M;s-, of the cld um- 
pires prefer to work alone If they get a 
little extra money. — Boston Herald.

BOURBON TEAM LOST THREE, 




HE inauguration of 
ladies’ night at tte 
Elite alley last night 
was a decided succe-js 
from a spectators’ 
standpoint, as one of 
the largest crowds ot 
the season was on 
hand to witness tbe 
double-header between the EIHes on one 
hand and (the West End and Cherokee 
teams on the other. The fair se.x was well 
represented, as quite a number were on 
hand to cheer their favorites, and there 
were many opportunities offered, a.s fancy 
spare.s were one of the features of the 
evening. 

The star actors of the cvoniiig in this 
lespect were Conway 1-7 spare; Kid Koert- 
nor, 5-10 spare; Ed Richter, Skin- 

ner, 5-0-10, one of the hardest spares on 
the board, and Fielden, 5-8-10 spare, each 
one of the hoys being cheered to the e.ho 
for their fine work. , 

The opening contest between the West 
End and Elite teams was a beauly, and 
was full of ginger from bogiunliig to end. 
each side having ample opportunity to cheer 
their team mates, as first one man would 
make a nice play and then another. In this 
game tho Elite team got off with a nice 
lead In the first frame, five marks, three 
of them being strikes, giving them a lead 
of twenty-two pins; five additional marks 
in the second game gave them an additional 
advantage. 

In the third frame the West End bays 
were able to break even with their oppo- 
nents, owing to F. Koertner doubling, and 
In the fourth frame they marked for keeps, 
every man marking except G. Becker, and 
F. Koertner stretching his double Into a 
triple. This enabled the AVest Eud boys to 
assume the lead, which they gradually in- 
ertased. leading by r,9 pins at the end of 
the eighth frame. The Elite boys made a 
nice spurt In the ninth and tenth frames,' 
and cut the lead of their opponents down 
twenty-five pins, but were not able to 
overtake the West End boys, and lost by a 
margin of thirty-five pins. Coleman was 
high man of the evening In this gu-.ne, and 
deserves credit for running up a score of 
1S9 after only getting forty-three pins in 
the first four frames, as he finished up with 
four strikes, a spare and three more strikes 
in the tenth frame. Sani, with 172, was 
next high man on the Elite team. For the 
West Ends. F. Koertner, with 176. and Gat- 
hof, with 165. were the high men. 

The second game proved to be a walkover 
for the Cherokee team, as the ‘Indians’’ 
Jumped off In the lead in the first game 
and were never headed. The Elite boys 
rallied in spots, but didn’t seem to want 
to become familiar with the head pin and 
paid this gentleman but few visits during 
the game. However; the game didn’t drag 
or become dull, as the many fancy spares 
that were bowled over kept the crowd in- 
terested at all stages. Fielden was high 
man In this game, scoring 177 pins.

FRANK ERNE AND JOE GANS TO 
DECIDE LIGHTWEIGHT 
TITLE. 



SPARES AND STRIKES. 



Ladies’ night proved to be a hoodoo for 
the Elite boys, as they dropped both 
games last night.. They also lost their 
game at Fountain Ferry ou ladlea' night. 

The Elite team fiuished the series of the 
season with both the Cherokee and Wes'. 
End teams last night, winning three out 
of four from the Cherokee team and 
losing three out of four to the West End 
team. 

The members of the different teams were 
guilty of picking fruit out of eeasoir last 
night— cherries are not ripe. The Elite 
boys were tho main offenders in the last 
game.

field, Mass., one of the crack clubs of the 
East. Tho Springfield club won by a 
S'.ore ot 1680 to 1620. ’The Louisvillo club

eruera used reduced charges. The match 
was ten yards, universal target, clubs of 
five, each man eighteen shots. For Louis- 
ville Henry Gilbert made an average of 
312 out of a possible 360. Dr. Smith, of

FALLS CITY LEAGUE. 



And Uncertain Contracts for Play- 
ers Let Out by National 
League. 



Capt. Green and his merry band of ' 

Southpaws downcJ* the Bourbon hoys ! 
three straight games at the Staniferd al- : 
leys hist night.. Starting off with a, score j 
of 722 In the first game, they bettered ! 
their plnnage .in the two following 
games, scoring '805 pins in the last game, j 
The high score of the evening was 
made by Reiberl, when he scored Id-l j 



Tbe worst phase of the situation is the 
plight into which the outgoing players are 
put, says Earl Wagner. There are about 
140 players who will be placed on the' mar- 
ket, and their services are of no use to 
minor leagues of the Class A caliber, be- 
cause their salaries arc too high. We will 
take Brodie, of the Baltimore Club, for ex- 
ara'ple. His contract calls for $2,200. What 
can he do next season? Nothing but go 
back to a minor league and work for $900. 
You know, the Class A salaries call for 
$900i or a four-and-a-balf months’ contract 
at $200 per month. Then there is Dick 
Pa^den. to whom I paid $2,200 last season. 
Just Imagine him taking a downshoot from 
$2,200 to $900. But he’s in luck, as he has 
some money, and may be able to stand off 
for the formation next season of another 
league that will be formed through agita- 
tion and sympathy for the players. This 
agitation may result in a war that will 
run this National League off the map.— 
Washington Post. 



ERNE TO QUIT THE RING. 



B etting on the fight 
between Erne and' 
Cans, at the Broad- 
way Athletic Club 
tonight, has not been 
quite to plentiful as 
bad been anticipated. 
Gans’ backers are 
not willing to give 
odds' on their man, 
although most sports 
claim that Gans has 
a shade the better of 
tbe argument so far 
as recent matches 
are concerned. Erne’s showing against 

Jack O’Brien is the only thing that causes 

some concern on the part of those who 
would ordinarily be inclined to give him 
their heartiest support. They do not be- 
lieve that he gave indication in that bat- 
tle that he was as capable a defender of 
the lightweight championship as -is neces- 
sary to retain it. 

Erne said yesterday that he would enter 
the ring in tbe best of condition, and 
could see no reason why he should not re- 
tain his present title. He has done al- 
most all of his hard work at Sheepshead 
Bay. It has not been light work. Realiz- 
ing that this Baltimore chap is something 
of a boxer and a man who will be very 
hard to beat, Erne has trained for a long 
fight. Most of tbe experts are of the opin- 
ion that It will not be a sbort contest. 
They think that both men are in proper 
trim to do well, and do not anticipate 
that there will be any rash attempts upon 
the part of either to force the fighting. 
If they go the limit, twenty-five rounds, 
there is some disposition to believe that 
Erne will get the decision. This is based 
on tbe theory that bis experience will 
stand him better than Cans’. Exactly 
where this comes in is hard to understand. 
Gans has not had* so many easy engage- 
ments during his ring experience, and the 
chances are that be will take a bruising 
battle quite as handily as Erne. 

George McFadden. who has fought both 
Gans and Erne, is predicting that the lat- 
ter will win. and is betting his money 
that way. Cans has been training at 
Lakewood with Corbett, and his manager. 
Al Herford, says he is in good condition. 

Al Harford, manager of Joe Gans. said 
last night that he is eager to wager $4,000 
ou bis man against Frank Erne. He de- 
clares that the Baltimore negro was never 
before in such excellent condition. Erne 
has decided to try his band at another 
business than pugilism. He is to become 
a bookmaker, and will have as a partner 
Bob Smith, the horse owner. Erne will 
make bis debut in that line at the Aqe- 
duct meeting. 



Eddie Santry, the Chicago feather, who Is 
scheduled to meet T€«rry McGovern before 
the Broadway Club the first week in May, 
arrived here last night from West Baden, 
where he began bis preliminary training for 
his coming bout. He is confident of mak- 
ing a good showing. On the night of the 
English Derby Santry will meet Jordan. 



whom he defeated some time ago lu New 
York. The bout will take place in London. 

Eddie Gardner, brother of Oscar Garcncr, 
the “Omaha Kid." will appear at tte 
Greenwood Athletic Club in New .Y'o'k 
city on Saturday night. Gardner is to bcr. 
Billy Barrett, and the men have agreed to 
make ip winner take all. They will go 
twenty-five rounds for a decision. Eddie 
Gardner is also matched to fight Patsey 
Haley and Solly Smith.

Writ of Habeas Corpus Saved a 
Banker from Prison. 



CHICAGO, March 22— Judge Dunne to- 
day issued a writ of habeas corpus Just 
in time to save former Banker E. S. 
Dreyer from going lo Joilet to begin an 
indeterminate sentence in the peniten- 
tiary for cmbeazlenient. Dreyer and his 
guards were aboard the train when the 
writ was served, and Just as the train 
puiled out the former banker was removed 
and taken back to Jail. 



WASHINGTON. March 22.— There is such 
a dltference of opinion among Kentucky 
Demociatic Congressmen regarding the pro- 
posed division of the United States Judicial 
District of Kentucky It promises to prevent 
action at this session of Congress. Some 
seven years ago. when Mr. Cleveland was 
President, and the Democrats had control 
of Congress, it was proposed to divide 
Kentucky, but then there was a disagree- 
ment in the Kentucky delegation over the 
line of division between the districts and 
the locations of court sittings. 

Catlettsburg, Richmond, Jackson, Cov- 
ington and other cities were urged for court 
sittings. The Judiciary Committee was 
ready to report the bill, but no agreement 
was reached. This year there are differ- 
ences on the question of division and of 
location of court sittings, but above ail a 
question of politics interferes. It is argued 
by some Democrats that if the bill be 
passed this year it will enable President 
McKinley to appoint the new Judge, and 
others claim if action is postponed until 
next Congress Bryan will be President, and 
the new Judge and court offleers will be 
Democrats. 

Within a few days it is possible that the 
opponents of the Judicial bill will agree 
upon a plan of action which, it would 
seem, would mean united action of their 
part to prevent action until the next Con- 
gress. 

TO BE UNITED ACTION. 

The Ohio Valley Improvement Associa- 
tion and the friends of the Big Sandy River 
are united in asking tbe River and Harbor 
Committee to make those waters navigable

for tbe rivers’ improvement. The repre- 
sentatives of the association appeared to- 
gether yesterday before the River and Har-

Claims of American Firms Against 
Government of Nicaragua. 



W.ASHINGTON, March 22.— At the op- 
ening of today's sesion of the Senate the 
following resolutions were passed: 

.A resolution by Mr. Alien, requesting 
Information as to the tariff rates in 
force in the' Philippines, Guam, Puerto 
Rico and Cuba, and the amount col- 
lected in each Instance since the Amer- 
ican occcupatioD. A resolution by Mr. 
Butler, asking the Secretary of the Treas- 
ury for information as to tbe bank 
charters granted since the passage of the 
currency bill, and for other Information 
concerning tbe operations of the bill. 

Mr. Pettigrew introduced a resolution 
calling upon the President for an item- 
ized statement of the expenses of the 
Philippine Commission, and each of Us 
members, but Mr. Davie objected to pree- 
eat consideration, and It went over. 

The Senate then took up the confer- 
ence report on the Puerto Rican appro- 
priation bill. 

Mr. Bacon (Ga.) objected to the changes 
made in the conference. The report 
would, he said, indicate that mutual con- 
cessions bad been made on behalf of both 
the Senate end tbe House, but be held 
that an analysis would show that tbe 
Senate had yielded practically every- 
thing and tbe House nothing. 

Senator Foraker, accepting a challenge 
from Senator Allen, offered to separate the 
tariff bill from the governmental bill in the 
Puerto Rican measure now pending in the 
Senate and vote on the tariff bill at 5 
o’clock 

At the request of several Senators en tbe 
Democratic side. Mr. Foraker offered to 
have the vote taken tomorrow. 

Mr. Proctor (Vt.), speaking for those on 
the RtTiublican side, who were opposed to 
the tariff bill, said this was n surprise, and 
wanted more time. They would be willing, 
he said, to vote Thursday. 

Mr. Foraker modlfled bis request and 
asked that the vote be taken Wednesday of 
next week, and while this was being dis- 
cussed, Senators Morgan and Pettus de- 
manded the regular order, which cut off 
any opportunity for an agreement. 

.Mr. Bacon criticised the Republican pol- 
icy with reference to the trade between 
the United States and the islands acquired 
from Spain. He wanted free trade with 
Puerto Rico, and wanted it quickly. 

Mr. Foraker announced that it was the 
intention to ask for an early vote on the 
Puerto Rico governmental bill now pend- 
ing. Mr. Cockrell (Mo.l and Mr. Sulli- 
van (Miss.) criticised tbe conference re- 
port. 

IN THE HOUSE. 

WASHINGTON, March 22.— In the Hou.se 
today the special order — the Loud bill— was 
taken up Immediately after the reading of 
the Journal. This is tbe concluding day of 
debate on the measure. Mr. Moon (Tenn.) 
opposed tbe discussion of tbe opposition. 
Mr. Loud, ju charge of the bill, announced 
that Mr. Moody (Mass.) would close the de- 
bate for tbe supporters of tbe bill in an 
hour's speech.

pected by England Soon. 



NEWI YORK, March 22.— The grand Jury 
today reported an indictment against Olga 
•Nethersole, Theodore Moss, Marcus Mayer 
and Hamilton Revelle, charging them with 
offending public deceucy. Tbe offense was 
in the production of tbe play “Sapho” at 
Wallack's Theater, of which Mr. Moss is 
the manager. 

The indictment characterizes those nam- 
ed as "persons of wicked and depraved 
minds and disposition." who, "not regard- 
ing the common duties of morality and d:- 
ceucy, but contriving and wickedly in- 
tending so far as in them lay to debauch 
and corrupt the morals es well of youth 
as of divers other persons, and tq raise 
and create in their minds inordinate and 
lustful desires,” did, a; Wallack's Theater, 
"unlawfully, wickedly, and scandalously 
exhibit, show and repeat, and cause and 
permit to be exhibited and shown and re- 
peated, for lucre and gain, in tbe sight 
and bearing and view of a large number 
of persons, divers indecent, lewd, filthy, 
bawdy and obscene representations, prac- 
tices, performances and evil conversa- 
tion." being the play, "Sapho." 

The indictment further alleges that "the 
motions, postures." etc., of the perform- 
ance, were such "that a more particular 
description thereof is not fit to be set down 
in these allegations or spread upon the rec- 
ords of this honorable court." 



LONDON, March 22. — It has been learned

TRYING TO AGRrf. 

WASHINGTON, March 22.— Renewed ef- 
forts were made today to secure an agree- 
ment on tbo Puerto Rican bill. Tbe friends 
of the measure are still confident, but the 
opponents on tbe Republican side stated 
posH-ively that the House tariff provision 
could not go through. Several propositions 
for a compromise have been made. One is 
to place in tbe bands of the President the 
authority to remit duties on goods going 
Into Puerto Rico and to retain tbe 15 per 
cent, duty on goods coming to this country 
till tbe Puerto Rican Legislature can con- 
vene and prepare a system of raising rev- 
enue for the Island. It is said this prop- 
osition will be accepted by a number of the 
opponents of the present bill.

Money. 

The Clearing-house report yesterday was 
as follows: 

Day’s clearing Jl, 534,609 

Balance 292,440 

The local money market today, though 
quiet, is firm and steady, and there Is a 
tolerably brisk demand for loans. Interest 
is Arm at per cent., according to the 
amount of loans, time wanted and/ the col- 
lateral furnished. 

New York exchange today is held at par 
and the demand, though good, is not quite 
so brisk as It has been for the last two 
days. 



Stocks and Bonds. 

The local security market shows an ex- 
ceedingly firm tone today, and there is 
considerable activity in the market, 
though the trading done is done in small 
amounts and confined to a rather narrow 
scope. The general price list shows a 
firming tendency, though there have been 
only fractional changes during the past 
two or three days, as will be found by 
consulting the subjoined stock and bond 
list. There is a good demand for the 
common stock of the Louisville Railway 
Company, but offerings are not abundant, 
even at the present very satisfactory fig- 
ures. There is also a growing demand for 
the common stock of the New Orleans Rail- 
way Company and prices are firming up 
a bit. 

Among the sales of stocks and bonds re- 
ported today are the following: 

34.000 L. & N. unified 4s, 99%. 

32.000 L. & N. collateral 4s, 100.

Market Gossip. 

Twenty*one cars of Southern steel have 
been shipped to Worcester, Mass., com- 
prising the first shipment to the North 
from Birmingham, Ala. 

While prices of raw sugar have been 
advancing those for refined sugar do not 
show corresponding advances. Raws have 
advanced 12*^c per 100 pounds, and re- 
fined only 10c per 100 pounds sinc^ last 
Saturday. This brings the difference be- 
tween raw and refined back to 50c per 100 
pounds. Refiners may make a small prof- 
it on floating supplies of raws, but on 
new purchases of raws there would be 
a loss of at least 24c per barrel on •re- 
fined. 



The time for making contracts for coal 
for the coming season has about arrived, 
and large buyers are inclined to arrange 
for the requirements In a limited way for 
the coming season. They prefer to wait 
before placing contracts of a very large 
proportion to notice the trend of the trade 
during the next couple of months. The 
fact that the stock of both anthracite 
and bituminous coal has been depleted at 
practically all points gives some assur- 
ance to the trade that there will be a 
healthy demand at good prices through- 
out most of the year. In view of the 



advance In traflic and mining rates, as 
well as the fact that dealers propose to 
Increase their margin for profits a little 
higher prices are being asked general'.y 
than were obtained a year ago. The 
receipts of anthracite coal at the princi- 
pal points in the West of late Imve show'n 
a heavy decrease, while the receipts of 
bituminous coal at those points have in- 
creased materially. 

The Southern Industrial Convention is 
to be held at Huntsville. Ala.. May 8 to 
11, This convention is held for the pur- 
pose of promoting the industries of the 
South, and the establishment of closer 
relations between all commercial and 
manufacturing classes. Already several 
of the Eastern cities have made arrange- 
ments to have delegations attend the con- 
vention. and it Is possible that a delega- 
tion will be sent from Louisville. Phila- 
delphia. New York and Baltimore have 
signified their intention of being present 
by repre.scntallon ut the convention, and 
the object of their taking such action is 
that they may establish a closer trade 
relation between their business and those 
of the South. 



Concerning the money market, advices 
frorr Vp\v Vor'* 

It seems probable th a^h e demand for 
money in the irunsacflflH ili. tvla.l 
business of the United Stales for pay- 
rolls and for similar cash disbursements 
will continue without abatement for the 
rest of the year. This demand can and 
will probably be met through the expan- 
sion of national bank circulation. The 
gold production of the United States, 
which finds its*way to the mints and as- 
say offices, should furnish the bank re- 
serves to meet the needs of borrowers in 
financial centers, who must check upon 
credits. The possibility of gold exports 
at any lime during the* next twelve 
months is balanced by the probability of 
gold imports. The present balance of 
foreign commerce and the prospective 
demand abroad for American products of 
manufacturers as well ns of agriculture, 
forests and m^nes. exhlude anxiety con- 
cerning disturbance of the money market 
by gold exports in the near future. Only 
one source of possible disturbance re- 
mains, and that is the collection by the 
Treasury of revenue in excess of the ap- 
propriations made by Congress. For this 
there has been heretofore no remedy ex- 
cept the purchase of bonds and the an- 
ticipation of interest by the Treasury, or 
the deposit of surplus funds in national 
banks. After refunding has been com- 
pleted under the finance act the former 
remedies will be Insufficient. 

The Immense wealth of the Standard 
Oil Company Is exhibited by the follow- 
ing figures: 

Original capital stock $10,000,000 

Present capital stock 100,000,000 

Value of stock per share six 

years ago 107 

Present value S*7 

Increase in value* in six years... 380.000.000 

Dividends paid since 1891 2(T7,000.0 X) 

Estimated dividend for 1900 80.000.(K)0 

The dividend paid In 1896 was $31,000,000. 
The year before the dividend was $12,000.- 
OOO. Since 1896 the yearly dividend has not 
gone below $30,000,000. 

Of the 3.000 stockholders of the company 
less than a dozen insiders ow'n 80 per 
cent, of the stock and control absolutely 
the workings of the company. 

Its $80,000,000 a year profits on a 5 per 
cent, basis would mean a property worth 
$1,600,000,000, or nearly one-seventh of all 
the nioney— gold, silver and copper— now 
In circulation In the whole world.

NEW YORK, March 93. — The market 
j opened easieo* on realizing induced by the 
lower quotations In London. Baltimore & 
Ohio was off nearly a point, and the local 
I traction stocks showed weakness. There 
was large buying of Norfolk & Western 
at an advance of nearly a point, and 
Southern Railway preferred rose a sharp 
fraction. The market showed a tendency 
to harden after the opening in sympathy 
with these strong points. 

Business was very large and irregular, 
but the fluctuations wera narrow in the 
railroad list. Most stocks hardened, but 
the heavy realizing and bear pressure 
against the specialties unsettled specula- 
tion. Norfolk & Western, Southern Rail- 
way, Chesapeake & Ohio and B. O.. wtre 
steadily advanced, but the tractions fdl 
sharply. Third avenue ran off to 102, ani 
People’s Gas, Brooklyn Transit, Manhattan 
and Metropolitan Street Railway fell 
i each. General Electric was activo and im- 
r-roved 2%. At 11 o’clock the tejiJency was

ute to the record breaking enormity of 
, .Argentine shipments and to lower cables. 
At the decline talk of big .cash sales, one 
house rcF^rting 500,000 bushels sold for 
export, catised a rally to 65Hc. The com- 
parative smallness of Northwest receipts 
had a steadying effect. Receipts here 
)\ere 22 cors, none of contract grade, while

early, but the tone of the market was 
firm. Country offerings weVo light, re-, 
ceipts here 473 cars. 17 cars under the 
osiimate, and there was some inquiry for 
export. May opened unchanged at 36H@ 
.T7c, touched 36‘^bC and reacUd to 37%c. 
Shorts covered freely on the rally. 

The oats market was quiet but firm, in- 
fluenced principally by corn. May opened 
a shade down at 23H@24c, touched 23% (^ 
23Hc and reacted to 24c. LO(:al receipts 
were 224 cars. 

The provision market the forepart of the 
sossiOD was strong and fairly active, sup- 
ported by higkT prices at the* yards, and a 
good cash demand. The advance was well 
held for some ;ime.

$11 Ton'll T5: May lard 2H^5c up at $C 20.

from last night’s ilse was mainly a sym- 
pathetic move, Burop;an mark;t m ws being 
decidedly bearish. Following the call the 
tendency of values was steadily downward 
under selling tor beth accounts by the room 
trade, liquidation by the outsi.le public 
and a lull in foreign d.mand for the new 
crop mouth. The late cables from Liver- 
Iiool were ngnlnst the market, as were ad- 
vances from the crop center.

HAPPENINGS IN THE 
INSURANCE WORLD. 



Jiluch interest is being taken here In the 
Meeting of the Western Union »t Philadel- 
j^hia, as it is understood that they may take 
il^e action in regard to “excepted cities," 
W which ciass Louisviile belongs. A paper 
this subject wiii be. read which will 
AWocate their being plaied under the Ju- 
risdiction of the. union. -\t pre.scut the 
.larger cities are governed by local boards, 
yhnd it is believed they will make a hard 
Afeht to maintain these organizations. 

‘.^lirhe fire Insurance agents here, are having 
■l4s of fun at the expense of two agents 
■vlito were so Impressed by the speeches at 
tl^e recent peace conference that they 
agreed to submit their differences to arbl- 
tdfition. Not long ago one of these agents 
.bjjurd of a policy which had been written 
Vp the other agent, so he wont to see the 
owner, who wag a woman, and got her per- 
Itnt.tion to renew it. Pretty soon along 
d^me agent No. 2 and the woman also told 
him to renew it. Then came the question, 
wlilch policy would she keep. One agent 
ail'd she must keep hts. as it had beeu 
written first, but the other claimed thal it 
■Was his, and that the other agent had been 
tpld to renew it under the impressiem tTrat 
too belonged to the firm of agent No. 2. 

. After much talk it was decided to submit 
the matter to a thlrB agent, and both, 
ajgteed to, abide by his decision. As luck 
would have it, the agent agreed upon con- 
troUed ail the other insurance which the 
womav had, and when the matter was fully 
explained to him. with wisdom greater than 
Solomon’s, he decided that neiliher of them 
was entitled to the policy, as the woman 
had intended to give it to him, and he 
made 'Jitm both cancel the policies, which 
he wrote himself. And now the word ar- 
tltratlou to these agents is what the tra- 
ditional red fiag is to the angry bull. 

The work of remodeling the offices of 
Jiesars. Dllday & Powell, managers of tho 
Equitable Life Insurance Company, is pro- 
gressing rapidly and will soon be complet- 
ed. The Equitable, by the way, has Just 
sent its exhibit for the Paris Exposition 






over to Paris. Its most Interesting feature 
will be an electrical display representing 
the growth of American insurance. For this 
purpose fac similes of the Statute of lib- 
erty in New York harbor, the Eiffel Tower, 
Arc de Triomphe and other objects of in- 
terest in both America and France, will 
be reproduced iu vari colored electric lights. 
The company will have attendants to ex- 
plain the exhibit to visitors. 

While it is a trifle late to tell of a Ctle- 
bration that was scheduled for Washing- 
ton's birthday, as it didn’t take place at all 
and only a select few knew of it, it is st 11 
new. In order that the day should b^ fit- | 
tingly observed two of the agents concluded I 
to present one of the agents with a hatche. i 
and have a round of apeecbmaking. .Mr. 
George Bacon, of Wood. Bacon & Co., was 
chosen as the roost worthy member of th * 
fraternity, so they went arrund to ten him 
to be at the board room on that morning. 
As they came into his otllce, before they 
had gotten a chance to speak to him, h l 
told them of an experience he had just 
bad. This story broke up the proposed 
celebration. When he got through they 
were so dazed that they left the ofhee 
without saying why they had come, and 
after a long walk in the opm air, came to 
the conclusion that there was no hatchet 
iu town big enough for Mr. Wood, so the 
celebration had to be called off. 

St* Patrick’s Day was observed by nearly 
all of the insurance agents, and the sham- 
rock vras to be found on them all. Mr. P. 
M. O’Reilly had one on each lap^l of his 
c »at. and it wasn’t because be had the 
Queen’s permission either. By the way, the 
company that Mr. O'Reilly is going to be 
State manager for is patiently waiting for 
the political tangle to be straightened out 
so it can enter the State. 

Mr. A. G. Langbam, of Barbee & Castle- 
man. has gone to Philadelphia to attend 
the meeting of the Western Union. 

Mr. Frank C. Hogan will return Saturday 
from New York, where he went to consult 
a specialist in regard to his baby's health. 
While the baby is Quite sick, under the new 
treatment an early recovery is hoped.

The Democreta yesterday and the day 
before, through the Haldeman papers, the 
Courier-Journal and Times, attempted to 
•work oft a monster take on the people ot 
Kentucky. 

Today the Courier- Journal virtually ac- 
knowledges it was lying, when it stated 
there was a plot to bring a large num- 
ber ot mountain men to the State capital. 
That the statement was false was patent 
on its face, but it served the purpose ot 
furnishing an excuse for young Mr. Beck- 
ham to call out a part ot his so-called 
State Guard. After that was done tho 
Courier at once began to hedge. 

The following special telegrams are 
from the Courier- Journal; 

NOTHING BUT RU.MORS. 

No indication of a movement at Corbin. 

CORBIN. Ki’., .March 22.— (Special.)— It 
is reported here this evening that a large 
delegation of citizens from Beil, Knox and 
Whitley counties are to go to Frankfort 
on tonight's train. If any are going from 
Corbin it has been kept quiet, as the corre- 
spondent has been unable to learn any 
names. However, it is expected several 
will go either tonight or tomorrow. Sev- 
eral men boarded the 11 o’clock train at 
Barbourville last night, buying tiokete to a 
•nay station a short distance away, but re- 
mained on the train, producing tickets to 
Frankfort, which they had previously ob- 
tained. They were not visibly armed. 

If any tickets are being given away or 
transportation being secured other than by 
purchasing in the regular way, the Cou- 
rier-Journal correspondent has bad no In- 
timation of such. It Is safe to assert that 
no such mob as was taken to Frankfort on 
January 25 will be there tomorrow. 



NOT LEGALLY OROANIZED. 

SHELBYVILLE, Ky„ .March 22.— (Spe- 
cial.) — The Shelbyvllle Sentinel says: "The 
Pleasureville company of State Guards, 
organized two days before tho assassina- 
tion of Gov. Goebel, and which has been 
ti’olng duly in Frankfort ever since, was 
not legally organized, as the law requir- 
ing a cerilflcate of character of the mom- 
bei’s of the company was complet.ely ig- 
nored. The County Judge of Henry coun- 
ty, when asked in regard to the certifi- 
cate, stated that be had never been con- 
sulted nor bis permission asked for the 
organization of the company in hie coun- 
ty, and he further said that bis consent 
i would never be given for such an unlaw- 
ful organization." 

RAILROADS EXPECT NO INCREASED 
TRAVEL. 

LIVINGSTON. Ky„ March 22.— (Spe- 

cial.) — The rumor in circulation that 
armed mountaineers or militia from Knox, 
Whitley and Laurel counties have gone to 
or are arranging to go to Frankfort is evi- 
dently n mistake, as none has passed 
here, and the local railroad officials at this 
place say that no arrangements have been 
made to handle any, and that there are no 
extra coaches on this division that they 
know of. 

NOT IN FAVOR OF FIGHTING. 

TVILLI AMSBURG, Ky., March 22.— 
(Special.) — From all Information that can 
be obtained none will go from here to 
Frankfort tonight. Republican leaders 

here say if Taylor cannot sustain his posi- 
tion by law they are not in favor of fight- 
ing. They believe in obeying the law. 

THIS STRATED THE RUMOR. 

CYNTHIANA, Ky., March 22.— (Special.) 
— .\ great number of empty coaches are 
being taken south over the Kentucky Cen- 
tral division of the L. & N. It is sup- 
posed they will be used to convey mount- 
aiueers to Frankfort tomorrow.

“Human Hearts,” Ha! Reid’s beauUfol 
idyl of the Arkansiis hills, that comes 
to the Avenue next week, has the repu- 
tation of possessing power to move and 
entertain. The varied characters chosen 
by the author to reveal his intenll6u 
are woven into action that in itself b-as 
artistic variety, and is alive with such 
elements as rivet the intention. The play 
is clean, clear and clever, and the fact 
that it is in its fourth season of suc- 
cess warrants the etatement that it has 
lasting power, which can be siaid of very 
few dramas. The secret of this lies iu 
the simplicity, truthfulness and varied 
human intereels. It will be presented 
with new special scenery for each act, 
and by a company of unusual excellence. 

Isham’s Octoroons are beating all of 
iheir previous records here for business 
by crowding the Avenue at each per- 
formance. The only remaining matinee 
occurs Saturday. 






Theodore Thomas and the Chicago cr- 
cheslra of sixty-five pieces will be greeted 
by a magnificent audience at the Audi- 
torium tonight. A’’ request of the manage- 
ment is that everyone be seated by 8:15 
o’clock, as Mr. Thomas will begin the 
opening number at 8:15 sharp, and posi- 
tively no one will be seated till the end 
of the work, which will be about an hour 
and fifteen minutes later. Leopold Kramer, 
the concertmeister, and one of the best 
violinists in this country, is down for a 
solo, and all the rest of the program is of 
equal or greater interest. Musicians unite 
in saying that Mr. Thomas has never of- 
fered a finer program in this city. It is 
ns fallows:

his osvn burlesque company at the Buck-

aud liveliest burlesque, this acknowledged 
master in burlesque has ever produced. It 
is a most amusing conceit in two scenes 
I and is a magnificently costumed affair, 
being arrayed in a manner that would do 
credit to any extravaganza. The full force 
ot the large organization is employed in 
its presentation and many marches, both 
gorgeous and novel, are introduced, with 
multi-colored light effects. The up-to-data

"THE BETTER PART 

Of valor is discretion.” and the better 
part of the treatment ot disease is preven- 
tion. Disease originates in impurities in 
; the blood. Hood’s Sarsaparilla purifies 
. the blood. People who lake It at this sca- 
, son -say they are kept healthy the year 
: round. It is because this medicine expels 
i impurities and makes the blood rich and 
j health-giving. 

Ail liver ills are cured by Hood’s Pills.

Those who went to Mac.iuley’s Theater 
Iasi night in the expectation of finding 
Paul Bilhaud's and Michael Carre's clever 
farce. “The Surprises of Love” a second I 
edition of “The Turtle,” which appeared 
here last season and delighted those who 
admire that which is risque and sugges- 
tive in the drama, were disappointed There 
are several lines in the last act which are 
slighily suggestive, but the comedy is 
comparatively pu.c and clean. 

The title to the farce is well chosen, as 
it is but a series of surprises from begin- 
ning to end. so .arranged as to keep the 
audience upon the tip-toe of expectancy 
throughout. The theme is that of a young 
man, disappointed in life, who allows him- 
self to be put up as a prize in a lottery. 
Dupont Martin bolds the winning ticket. 
No. 147, and he presents It to his affianc- 
ed. Mme. Marcello Duval. She Is loth to 
accept the prize, but her sympathy for 
him. after he has attempted twice to 
diown himself, finally Induces her to care 
for him temporarily. He becomes the idol 
of the young ladies w’ho visit her, and 
she herself falls a victim to bis charms, at 
last breaking off her engagement with 
Martin and becoming the bride of her lot- 
tery prize. 

The situations are very clever and the 
company is an unusually good one. Tho 
foncale characters are taken by a bevy of 
unusual good looking and well costumed 
girls. In fact, the costumes of the women, 
including those of Elsie De Wolfe, are 
enough to delight the heart of femininty 
with the performance.
