A picture of Col. Ambassador George Harvey In knee- breeches has been sent from London to American news papers. Makes George look: like he Isn't "all there.". We had that impres ion of him before the ploture appear ed. In the last hours of the Legislature, which adjourned early '.Thursday morn lng. the general registration bill was passed over the Governor' veto, Dy cus came back and voted with the Democrats. This requires all voters In the State to register. net July. No registration in after years will be re quired except those moving, or new citiaens coming in. ' Hon. Henry R. Lawrence, by a hard fight, got a bill through the Legisuv ' ture providing for a survey commie Ion to report In 1924 on how Kentuc- - ky may be best reorganized as to Its offces. This would Involve an Invest! gatlon Into all branches of government In the State. For Instance, the great waste In connection with circuit courts would be considered. Some districts have a total of only 74 to 78 days of court In a year. There are other sour ces of waste almost or quite as ser lous. Nothing has been done toward abolishing useless offices and nothing will be done until a general survey by high class men is made and the facta put Into the hands of the people. Then we may at least faintly hope for the lection of a Legislature that will do something to remedy conditions. : GRIFFITH CREEK Neil Thompson and Mrs. Granville Harris were 1 at- Van .Lear Saturday till Monday Tisltifng theii1 aunt, Mrs. Scott Martin, who Is low with con sumption.
