A Correction
In our issue of June 16th an error
was made as to the close season on
squirrels In addition to the time
from February 1st to June 15th
there is another space of two
months from Sept 15th to Nov 15
when they may not be shot neither
squirrels nor rabbits This law was
made not only to give the squirrels
that much more protection but to
remove the temptation from the
man or boy with a gun to shoot
quail before the opening season for
them which begins Nov 15 and
closes Dec 31 So during these
two months of the year no kind of
gamecan be legally killed in Ken
tucky except Doves Duck Wood
cock Snipe and Deer Rabbits may
be snared or trapped or treed
with a dog at any time and the
luscious possum can be plucked
when ever he is ripe but no shoot
ing of rabbit squirrel quail or
pheasant during this close season
from Sept 15 to Nov 15 both days

a series of crimes attributed to so
called Black Hand u societies in the
Italian quarter of New Orleansone
of the worst tragedies yeti connect
ed with that section tookplace to
day when three Italians vyere shot
to death
deathAccording
According to the police these men
were killed as a result of an attempt
to extort money from Pietro Giacono
a wealthy Italian wine merchant of
1113 Chartres street Giacona and
his son told the police that these
men had frequently bought wine
from them by the barrel and had
invariably refused to pay for it
According to their story the three
forced them to ship a barrel of wine
to a point in Louisiana yesterday
and returned early today and order
ed them to prepare a meal The old
er Giacona suspected that trouble
would ensue and hid a repeating ri z
file near the table When one of the
visiting Italians drew a heavy caliber
revolver and ordered them to pro ¬
duce money and valuables the side rin
Giacona answered with a shot from
the rifle The man he fired at fell
dead and the other two attempted
to escape
One was killed before he had got
ten ten feet from the table The
other reached a staircase only to re
ceive a bullet in his brain as he start
ed down the steps his body falling
into the courtyard below
Only one of the Italians killed has
been identified as a man named Bar
racca known to the police

1reau of Manufacturers made public I
a report received from Consul Gen >
era Skinner at Marseilles in reply to
an inquiry from correspondents as to
the probable effect in France of an
increase of 20 to 30 per cent in the
price of American tobacco He states
that unless clearly justified by gen
era crop conditions it would be to
accentuate the present tendency in
France to procure supplies in other
countries In five years Consul
Skinner says the only substantial in
crease in importations of American
tobacco occurred in 1905 and this
increase just measured the shortage
in importations from Algeria The
disposition seems to be to decreased
importations from the United States
while increasing them from other
countries
It must be remembered continues
Consul Skinner that American ex
porters are dealing with an absolute
government monopoly and that if
prices in the United States should
I
advance too rapidly thy monopoly is
free to buy in the cheapest available
market and may be expected to do
so to the extent that the substitute
tobaccos do not interfere with the
volume of consumption and conse
quent revenue which the govern
ment expects to derive from the en
terprise This is equally true of
other European governments which
control the tobacco business The
French government is further com
mitted to the policy of developing
the colonies in every possible man
ner and other things being equal
will give their tobacco the prefer
ence The Consul notes specially
that advanced farming methods ares
being employed in remote tobacco
growing countries which is greatly
increasing production This is par
ticularly true in the fertile and pop
