Why Not Treat nil Lawbreakers
Should t lie writer openly vio
late the law in any way lie would
lie "bossed" up before tlm courts
niid made to account for it That
is rislit. If is just as it should
be. No individual orindividu
als would have to shoulder any
expense in prosecuting us either.
That is right too. But what is
bothering us is to make the L. &
N. railroad observe the law with
out the people of Powell county
having to fee a lawyer, and pay
out a lot of unnecessary cost in
prosecuting the road. The law
says no railroad snail ttuy out a
parallel or competing line. The
Ji. & N. has violated this law in
buying out the L. & E., running
through this county and should
be amenable to the courts and
prosecuted without the attention
of the citizens. But if the ofli
cers whose duty it is, fails to en
force this law, then the only re
sort is for citizens to file a civil
action against the road and at
their own cost compel them to
keep the law. It looks very hard,
however, for individuals to be
prosecuted by the Common
wealth, und frequently prosecut
ed for the benefit of the railroads
and then when these roads wil
fully and openly violate the laws
of the Commonwealth the citi
zens have to go to their own ex
peii8.fi to" compel them,, to keep

her daughter, Mrs. J. L. Martin,

anyone. She was very hule and
hearty until about two weeks
ago. Mrs. Martin is her only
child. She is a grandmother of
Dr. Martin of this city who has
been to visit her several times re
cently and .who will attend the

This is the. .moving season and
it seems that every v team hafl
been pressed into'' -service--to-ric
commodate the new home seek

however, that a fewer number of
the good people are moving this
season to other states.

Insurance War Compromised.
The insurance war in Kentucky
between I he .State Insurance Ho
ard and thd fire insurance com.
panies is over. Concessions have
been made. by the Insurance Bo

bers of the State Insurance Board,
Ruby LalFoon, N. 0. Gray and In
surance Commissioner Clay met
in Louisville; with Thomas Bates,
of Chicago, representing the in
surancc companies and reached
a basis of settlement.

The Hazel' Green Herald, the

inauguration day, having first

Grover Cleveland was first inau

any paper so loyal to the good

Give them Some Business.
Representatives of the South
ern Mutual Life Insurance Com
pany, of Louisville, are in the
city. This company being a state
corporation, as well as a substan
tial surety companv, should re
ceive a good patronage here. If
Keutuckians would patronize
Kentucky concerns instead of
foreign companies, the State
would grow wealthier, wiser and
friendlier, and produce less ax
es, more public improvements
and fatisiied homes, and, upon
the whole, a State that would
compare more favorably with
other progressive states and one
that would give us pride to call
Assessment Board to begin Work.
The Board of Valuation and
Assessment will begin the work
of assessing franchise taxes for
1018 week after next. John II.
Rich, of Covington, again will be
the board's legal adviser. The
work last year was not started
until April, and the investiga
tion, involving trips in other
St ites, consumed several months.
With the data in hand, it is
thought, much less time will bo
required this year.
From experience we have
learned that willful law violat
