Lexington, Ky., April 5.-The Kentucky
Geological Survey, Charles J.
Norwood, director, his just issued
Bulletin No. 9. a volumn treating on
the "Flourspar Deposits of Kentucky,"
which is the most complete publication
on this mineral ever gotten out in the
United States. It is by Assistant Director
F. Julius Fohs, and is replete
with data relating to the general
of fluorspar, its techology, etc.
Neccessnrily the bulletin deals chiefly
with the deposits in the western end of
tho State. The bulletin says the deposits
of fluorspar Central Kentucky
have received less attention from prospectors
than they may derive. In fact,
it seems not improbable that systematic
explorations of those rocks that lie
below the limestone will develop
depoiits of importance. It is
also intended to work a further study
of the barytes deposits of that part of

Editor Tobacco Tiding:
Dear Sir I am in receipt of a letter
from a most ardent supporter of the
America Society of h'quity, one who
believes in the etllcency of the A. S. of
E. to protect "-the farming industry.
Ask fag an opinion in one breath, and
advocating a most vigorous policy in the
next, he Bays: "I'm in favor of nn
A. S. of E. pool this year, and for the
succeeding years. I'm in favor of
seperating the sheep from the goats.
I'm in favor o a real 'square deal.' I
would say that no one may have the
privilege of pooling his tobacco who is
not man enough to pay the same costs
his fellows pay. All of the officers of
the A. S. of E. that 1 have talketl too,
think that tho A, S. of E. Should not
play second fiddle to any so-called

between the hours

Kentucky have been A. S. of E. pools.
It was the A. S. of E. that taught us
how to pool. It was the A. S. of E.
that organized the several tobacco associations
and put then, in working con
dition. It is the plnn of the A. S. of E.
that each type, or rather the growers
of each type, should manage their own
affairs; that is, the details.
The A. S. of E. was big enough and
broad enough to consent that those not
members of the A. S. of E. might
become members of the tobacco asso
ciations by pooling. But it was con
templated that the several tobacco as
sociations would meet together at least
annually around the A. S. ofE. hearth
stone, and there take counsel, the one
with tho other, for mutual interest and
tha general welfare. It was also-contemplated
that those pooling would assuredly
como up like men and join the
A. o. of E. after being made beneficiaries
of its effective and practicability.
Much can be said, pro and con, as to
the foresight of those who shaped that
policy. Personally, I think it was the
best that could have been done at the
time, and has hastened the time of
demonstrating tho efficiency of the A.
S. of E. and brought blessings to thousands
who could have received them
through no other source. The tobacco
associations, however, have been tempting
fields for those who have a greater
regard for self-interest than public
wenl; consequently, organization has
not been fostered and pushed as it
should have been. There has been too
much of the glamor of hero worship,
and not sufficient regard or apprecia
tion of the real power that was holding
the trust at arm's length, viz; the
number pooling and their cohesiveness.
Growers, I think, are realizing that
more and more, and nre looking to the
A. S. of E. as the proper fold,
and are getting in at n rate
that will include all the tobacco growers
in the state before the 1909 crop is
houaed. Wherefore I think there is little
douht of the 1909 pool being an A.
S. of E. pool in its broadest sense.
It's my opinion that the opponents

Nashville, Tenn;, April 3. -The Cumberland
Presbyterian Church in Tennessee
this afternoon won the noted
church case with which the Tennessee
Supreme Court has been wrestling for
two years. The Supreme Court, in an
opinion of pages, delivered
by Justice M. M. Nell, holds that the
steps sought to be taken by a portion
of the Cumberland Presbyterian church
in uniting with the Presbyterian church
U. S. A., were not effective.
It was held that the Cumberland
church still exists, and that its members
still retain its creed, doctrines.
etc. It was held that unionists had al
lied themselves with another different
church and doctrines.
The Cumberlands are given the
church property, and the unionists are
adjudged not to have a right or title to
it. Their bill, in which thp mai
recover church property in Fnyetteville
Tennessee, is dismissed with cost.

among the Democrats than any tariff
speech delivered this session. Mr.
James sooke about fifty minutes.
From the 6tart he attacked the inconsistencies
and injustices of the

schedules and "roasted the protection
