' Capt. Uichmond 1. Jlohson says whisky causes
' 3,000 men to murder their wives each year. Ho
should now he frank and show what proportion C
' those whisky-soaked wife murderers live in prohi
bition Slates Courier-Journal.
Even Democratic papers are admitting that-husi-1
ness is had and men are idle. The New Vork Times
has made the statement that "in the middle stales
there are a million idle men with an average loss of
$50,000 a day in wages." As an instance of this,
in Chicago, it hus been proposed to appropriate a
million dollars to relieve idle wage earners.
NEW HOUSES AND HEALTH.
New houses are constantly ottered for rent in
1 largo numbers in the United States and real-estate
agents are naturally anxious to till the houses on
their lists with tenants as soon as possible. Prob
ably a little investigation would show the desir
ability in this country of requiring a certificate that
a new house will jiot endanger the health of its
occupants before families are allowed to move into
it. Such municipal regulations are prdving val
uable in England. Toward the close of 1SM2 the
Portsmouth (England) corporation decided that
thereafter no new building intended for human
habitation in that borough should be occupied un
til it had been certiiied as sanitary in every respect.
Dr. A. Meurns Fraser says: "The principal evil
that it will prevent is the occupation of houses be
fore they have had time to dry." He adds: "1
would far sooner live in a house with defective
drainage than in a damp house; the results from the
latter are more insidious in their onset and more
difficult to overcome. Dampness undoubtedly great
ly favors the incidence of consumption, bronchitis,
rheumatism, heart-disease and diphtheria. Prob
ably children are more susceptible to the ill ef
fects of damp houses than adults." The depart
ments of health of our cities might well take up this
question, says The Journal of the American Medical
Association. Probably most American municipal
ities already have the legal power necessary o re
quire such certificates and the question is only one
of making the regulation and establishing the custom.

HOME FIRE INSURANCE COMPANIES.
The fire insurance situation in Kentucky is hav
ing at least one good effect. It is inducing the for
mation of a number of new fire insurance com
panies in various parts of the Slate.
A dispatch from Lexington tells of the probabil
ity of a company being organized there by James
B. Ifaggin and other men of capital. A new com
pany is begiuning operations at Paducah and an
other is in process of formation at Hopkiusville.
There are a number of companies already in ex
istence with headquarters in Louisville, Lexington
"" There is absolutely no reason why the people of
Kentucky should not keep at home at least a con
siderable amount of the money thai is being paid
out in premiums to foreign insurance companies.
This money kept at home would contribute in great
degree to the prosperity of the Commonwealth
Certainly tho people of Kentucky do not lack the
means or the business ability to institute and main
tain companies for the purpose of protecting their
own property and the property of persons in other
Public attention evidently is being directed to
this feature of the situation, and men of wealth and
commercial influence are beginning to see the pos
sibilities of niade-iu-Kentucky insurance organiza
tions. As a public benefit and as a source of profit
the home-formed company is eminently worth con
sidering at this particular time. Courier-Journal
