Last Saturday morning when Mr.
Wylic, pharmacist for tho Berea
Drug Co., went to work he discovered
that a number of articles, including
some boxes of candy, a kodak, some
jewelry and pens, were missing from
the show window. A more complete
chock on tha missing goods revealed
that at least 1237.00 worth of mer-j
chardise had been taken from the
strre on Friday night. However, no
si(;ns could be found of the place
where the robbers had entered.
The matter wss placed in the hands
of the city officials and an investiga

artly lik some of the missing a-ti
cles. Vaughn waa arrested on sus

HIGHER COURT CONFIRMS
Jsckson County Bond Issue Held
Frankfort, Ky., Dec. 16. Th!
Court of Appeals Friday aflrmed the
decii ion of the lower court in the
esse of Ha-rison vs. Jackson Fisoul
Court. This esse attracted consider
able attention since all the poin'j
were attacked connected with the
holding of an election to issue bond
in the sum of $125,000 for the ?on
stiuction of a turnpike from McKee
to the Madison county line.
Judge Marning held the election to
be legal and the case was appealed
to the higher court, but the opinio i
of the lower cou-t was upheld.
The citizens of Jackson county
have made a most consistent fight to
get an outlet to the outside wor'd
and their most worthy efforts have
attracted the interests of the people
in many sections of the State, an-l
the State Road Department is in
sympathy with their efforts and ha)
pledged to construct a road from
Madison rountv to McKee if Madisor
would help to construct the mileage
in that county. Clay county has like
wise voted bonds to the amount of
$200,000 and it looks like these coun
ties are in for road building.
The new Kentenva Associat'nn.

further the interests of constructing

It is believed that a settlement
with Turkey is near at hand. Eng
lard is inte-ested in the territory in
Asia Minor which contains oil re
sources. The U. S. also insi: ts that
no arrangement between the two can
be made that excludes the U. S. right
ti the use of the oil supply. Turkey
has not shown much disposition thus
fur to show tolerance to foreign pop
ulation. An agreement was reached
that Christian populations might re
main in Constantinople on certain
conditions. Among other things, the
head or Patriarch of the Greek church
must leave. Since Constantinople ha
been the seat of the Greek Catholie
church since early times, this is con
sidered an especial hardship. It doe
not seem likely that any section is
to be set apart aa a home for tho
Armenians, and their future is not
bright. Nor will Turkey as yet give
up her claim to try all foreigners in
her own courts, thus doing away
v.ith the capitulations, or agree
ments, made with the U. S. years
ago. Constantinople will not be re
garded by the Turks as their capital
city, but rather Angora, a city some
300 miles to the east in Asia Minor,
will be developed as a capital for the

Reports continue to be circulated
that a change is coming about in
America's attitude toward the Euro
pean situation. Ambassador Harvey
is to return to the U. S. for confer
ence, as ia thought, on the financial
situation. The continuous fall in th
value of the German mark has been,
tha center of,, .attention. Germany
wishee a large loan, and It can be
secured in no place but th U. S.
Our government ha not authorized
any such loan as yet, and John
Pierpont Morgan, who has just rw
tt'med from Europe, say none has
been arranged for. The reports,
however, persist and President Hard
ing is quoted as saying that Europe
needs America's aid. Tha suddIt of
gold in the U. S. ia greater than ever
before in our history, and we could
make a loan that would in no senso
obligate us to cancel any debt It
has been America's belief that Europe
must work it out herself, but that
may truly be impossible. If Amer
ica makes a loan, it will be on con
ditions that are helpful to the world.
At the international conferenoa of
jurists, now meeting ot the Peace Pal
ace in th Hague, our own rep
resentative, John Bassett Moore,
was selected as chairman. Th ob
ject of this conference is to take up
the rules regulating war and revise
them so that they will conform to
changed conditions. These Interna
tior.al lawyers are aware of the fact
that the rules of war were badly
broken or disregarded entirely in th
recent war, and yet they are goiag
at their task with considerable of
l.cpe and confidence, believing that
in some way international law ia tn
have a better standing in the future
than in the past. The U. S. ia com.
milted to the rjolicv of nnnl fn
Irw in international relations and
has always used her influence in tht
direction. Her policy of isolstion.
however, prevents that cooperation
