Strong Arm of the Law.
The Courier-Journal of Saturday, al
though mixed in the color of the sub
ject. contained the following editorial :
"For an example of justice in its
most relentless form here in Kentucky
one must observe the strong arm of the
law when it is brought to bear on a
crap shooter or a chicken thief.
"Some time ago a Bourbon county
negro stole half a dozen chickens and,
ot course, the strong arm got him and
put Iiim 'under the clock' quicker
than he could strip a pullet of her
I feathers and heat up the frying pan.
i He went to jail, where he found no
chicken on the bill of fare, and, be
ing an expeditious darkey, he succeed
ed in finding the entrance out' while
the turnkey slept. Imbued with the
idea of putting as much daylight as
possible between himself and the
Bourbon county jail he went to Kan
sas, presumably taking turns about on
slow freight trains and oh Shanks' fil
ly. "But a chicken thief can't go any
where without being disturbed, espe
cially if he happens to have monkeyed
with a Kentucky hen roost. About
ninety-nine persons out of a hundred
would agree that when 'a trifiin',
thievin' nigger' emigrates from Ken
tucky to Kansas it is a rather lhappy
solution of an embarrassing problem ;
in other words, a good riddance of bad
rubbish. Justice, however, never
goes to sleep on a hen coop and the
strong arm is mighty to swat the base
blackamoor who dares lift a broiler or
disturb the peace and dignity of a
shanghai rooster. Wherefore Rastus
in Kansas is a subject ot requisition and
the Governor of Kentucky ha3 called
upon the Governor of the Sunflower
State to give him up for transmission
back to Bourbon county, the scene of
his unpardonable transgression.
"All this in the name and by the
authority of the Commonwealth, with
the great seal affixe d, in order that
the strong arm may reach across the
Mississippi river and fetch Rastus
home on a free excursion ticket, paid
for by the Commonwealth aforesaid.
In lieu err so costly a valentine it
would have been better to have sent
him a chromo and an indefinite ticket
of leave, but the strong arm of the
law is particularly strong on chicken
thieves and is never bo active as when
a big black coon abducts a modest and

Back Tax Against Burley.
Auditor's Agent Gilfillian sprang a
surprise on the shareholders of the de
funct Shelby County Equity Warehouse
Companv in claiming taxes due the
State by the company on $17,000 for
the year of 1910. This company on
November 11 1909, sold its warehouse
and redryer and the lot on which they
stand for the sum mentioned to the
Burlev Tobacco Company, which exe
cuted three $5,000 nutes and one for
$2,000 in payment therefor. These
notes were not paid until December 10,
1910, and consequently, being in pos
session of the Shelby County Tobacco
Warehouse Company on September 10,
1910, were liable.
