Several weeks ago Dr Adams was

sition of calling him to the pastorate
was submitted to the membership the
vote was unanimous In favor of In
viting Dr Adams to become their
permanent pastor The Jackson church
has been withoil a pastor only a
i short while and las Dr Adams was
I so well known itt them through his
vigorous work for the cause of tern
I perance the congregation was of one
t mind as to the expediency of calling
I him to the pastorate
The church at Jackson Is wide
awake and prosperous and they have
a large membership Jackson IB a
thriving little city of about twclvg
I
or fifteen thousand inhabitants and
there is a splendid field for work
Dr Adams has been pastor of the
Baptist church in Frankfort about ter
wears having come here froni Mason
M county He isa West Virginian by
i birth and he is a man of marked
ability During his pastorate in Frank
fort he has built up the church until

i an addition to their church building
at a cost of about 12000

i Dr Adams came into State prom
inence by his active work for the
cause of temperance About four
years ago he was elected president ot
the Kentucky Anti Saloon League and
served in that capacity until a few
months ago when he resigned
Dr Adams will decide finally what
ho will do in the next few days and
I should he decide to accept the call
which is almost a certainty he will
give his congregation due notice in
order that they may secure another

OF TOBACCO FACTIONS
PLAN FORMED AT OWENSBORO
TO EFFECT A NEW ORGAN
IZATION
It is believed that peace will con
tinue W reign in the Green River to
bacco district A movement for the
consolidation of allof the tobacco
growers of the Green River district
in a single organization under a
constitution providing for home rule
and home borage was begun at a
leeting in Owerisboro of the Green
River Tobacco Growers Association of
the American Society of Equity and
unless the plan fails it will be con
sumatedat a genet massmeeting of
tobacco growers to be held In Owens
boro April 18 j
The proposed constitution for tho
new organization resembles in some
respects the plan of government In
force In the Dark Tobacco Growers
Protective Association while in other
important respects it differs from that
associationThe
The new organization if formed will
embrace five counties in kentucky the
old Green River district and two in
Indiana Spencer and Warrick The
Kentucky counties are Davies Mc
Lean Hancock Ohio and Breckln
ridge The distinctive points of the
proposed plan of government are
County representation on a basis of
amount of tobacco produced the
handling and sale of tobacco by a
district board of control subject to
county referendum permanent head
quarters in Owensbory illlmination
of all questions except that of grow
ing handling and marketing tobacco
and independence of other organiza
tions
From present Indications it appears
almost certain that the union of all
the factions in the new organization
will be effected The tobacco growers
regardless of organic affiliation recog
nize the futility of attempting to con
trol the situation with two or three
organizations Some 300 of them In
DaViess county alone have heretofore
not affiliated with any organization
Many of the most prominent Amen
can Society of Equity men are strong
advocates of the new organization
This was clearly apparent in the dis
trict meeting Tho meeting was large
ly attended and much enthusiasm was
manifested A number of the men who
have In tho past favored pooling the
tobacco with the Louisville Ware
house Company spoke in favor of the
new organization

would be one whenever it became
necessary came to Frankfort to se
cure some Information to carry back

the city and talkedi casually with soy
eral people until he found out who

him any bodily harm All we want to
tell him is that no tobacco shall be
raised la Kentucky this year and that
all he has to do is to sit steady in
the boat and no harm shall come tP
him or any one else
He asked the same questions as to
where certain Senators and Repro
sentatives boarded and said they
might be called on too by the night
riders if was deemed necessary
It is possible that this stranger was
just indulging in idle talk and was
trying to start something but the
tnan he was talking to says he talked
like he meant what he said

TO GET THE AX
SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC
PRINTING J W HEDDEN
One of the on dits of the week is
that the headsmans ax is to fall in
the near future and that its victim is
to be Jolly genial Capt Jos W Hed
den Superintendent of Public Print
lug
It seems that Capt Hedden was
appointed to this position in 1906 by
Gov J C W Beckham for a term of
four years under an act of the Legis
lature creating the office
In that law there Js a provision
which allows the Board of Print
Commissioners to remove the incum
bent for cause which in political
parlance means that whenever the
Board means that whenever the
fellow the Incumben has to skidoo
Capt Heddens friends claim that
the wording of the law is such that he
can not be removed until his four
years is up which will be in 1910
However this may be the rumor Is
that the Board wants the place for
another man and we fear our genial
friend will have to walk Spanish
to the victor belongs the spoils and

THE FRUIT SAFE SO FAR
1 f
Although the thermometer scuttled
perilously near the icelkie we are
informed by our farmer friends and
horticulturists that so far as can be
seen Just now little if any damage
was done to the fruit crop I
They also say that even If onethird
or onehalf of the bloom Is blasted
yet the trees will not be able to bear
the load of fruit which the remainder
of the buds will afford
We sincerely hope that no serious
damage may befall the crop and we
may have a full harvest of the tooth
