I nder Kopubllcan administration It has been impossible for the Gov ernment to control tho trusts uo cause the trusts controlled the Government Hoeor, there will be a different order of procedure after the 4th of next March Quite a number of tho country newspapers of tho State, following an old custom, will not appear this week. But It would take some thing more calamitous than Christ mas to keep The Herald from lssu' Ing every week In the jear. President Taft says ho was not plajlng politics when he put 36, 000 postmasters under the civil service rules. Says he did it to de- stroy tho "spoils system." But It j seems strange that it should have occurred at such an opportune time. A joung lady clerk in the Census Bureau at Washington listed the olTenso of running a blind tiger un der the head of "cruelty to ani mals' Como to think of it, she's about right. Man the victim of tho tiger Is frequently referred to as an animal. Tho opponents of tho next na tional administration would like -rery much to stir up a fuss cu es trangement between Wilson and Bryan. They aro using their best efTorts to do so now. Whether Bry an Is Included In the Presidential cabinet or not, wo believe he is too great a man to be disgruntled. Hon. A. O. Stanley, representa tive In Congress from tho Second District, has formally announced his candidacy for United States Senator, to bo voted for at tho Stato primary election to be held next August. Former Gov. J. C. W. Beckham is also a candidate, and It has been rumored that Hon. D. H. Smith, of Hodgenvllle. will enter the Senatorial race, "" a It Is said that one of tho littlo band of suffragettes that started afoot last weelc from Now York to Albany to deliver a message to Gov. Sulzer, wore no stockings, believ ing she, could walk with greater case without them. Instead, she smeared her nether extremities with black paint, as a protection from tho cold. Probably she just left her hoso at home hung up for Santa Claus. The Court of Appoals has decid ed that a policeman or other peace officer has no right to arrest an al leged offender against tho law without a warrant, unless ho sees the, offense committed. This, In re ality, has always been the basis of our common law. Now let a severe penalty be meted out against the officer who wantonly shoots down a fleeing alleged criminal against whom no offense has yet been pro Yen. In a letter to a friend, Miss Helen Gould, the noted philanthropist whose marriage will soon occur, sajs: "If I had found a sultablo helpmate I might have spent my money in a different, wnv. and a way which might not have done aB much good as it has." In other words, If Miss Gould. had married, years ago; a sultablo sort of fellow, he wouldn't have been sultablo for the carrying out of her greatest aim In life her philanthropies. We. hope you catch her meaning. Some how we don't ''get her." There Is quite a quantity of read ing In The Herald to-day appropri ate to the season and the day.

Into Car Shortage Matter Doubtful. NO IMMEDIATE RELIEF GIVEN State Rail Road COmmiSSlOIl Reserves Decision, and Miners Disappointed. MATTER IS FULIjV PRESEXTED Central City, Ky., Dec. 20. At to-day's afternoon session of the State Railroad Commissioner's hearing Into the coal car shortage on the ' Illinois Central, ueorge M. Burton, manager of the Broadway Coal Company, testified that minor breakdowns temporarily suspend ing operations, occur two or three times a week. Ho denied the state ment of Judgo Wlckllffe that the average miner docs not want to work over four days a week, rand Bsld most of them would work six days If they could. General Manager S. A. York, of the Central Coal and Iron Company and McHenry Coal Company, was next called. He explained that he )ias n full rating of 82 G tons by reason of the Illinois Central railroad taking mine-run coal for Its engines. Tho capacity of the McHenry Coal Com pany is 800 tons and tho Render mlnq hns a capacity of 750 tons and a rating of 200 tons. When tho McHenry tipple burned he pooled Render and Echols and thus gets 750 tons on alternate days at both mines. The joint capacity was 1,550 and rated at 750 tons. Ho received 44 per cent, of the cars ordered. Mr. Yorlj stated that the opera tors submitted the figures for rat ing until a disagreement arose. Then the Illinois .Central railroad , based its rating on tho average Out- I... i....i pui irom April i 10 sepieniDer i, , . allowing 50 per cent, for winter ex- i Mr. York entered Into a detailed explanation of i-e rating process, Ho nlinwoil hnw a mlno riinnlnt Ho nowed how a mjnef,. running ono aay a monin ano noiBung i.ouu tons a dav would bo atd' aB a 200-ton mlno, and , another .mine, working every day and. hoisting (the Bame amount an hour, would get luo aamo "B- - " .uieu n8 wouio. hko io go on recora w,in ( reference to the coal-price ajjltatlon In Louisville.

Tker. of the, rock ) irt ( INVESTIGATION County EJcrye' Corn. Gltio. Coal Company, was recalled and (dmittcd that tho distribution of cars since Mr. Kemp took charge in i:"'i unber, has been fair. Pi'j vious to that time ho clalmr-l llu Render mine received 1G0 to 170 per cent.; Echols, 107 to 110 per cent, of their demands, while this mine got only CO per cent, during the same period. Ho protested to Supt. Egan, whose figures showed no discrimi nation, but has been unable to get proper rating and adequate car supply. Ho claims he is rated at 500 tons when he could get out 1, 200 tons If furnished" cars. Kemp promised a rcratlng as soon as a decision was handed down. He has kept car numbers of Rockport, Render and Echols, which aro only a few miles apart. He protested to Kemp that ho was not getting a square deal, and he says Kemp admitted It. Mr. Finn ruled out this testimony, because Mr. Tucker admitted that the trou ble had been remedied. George Baker, international board member of tho miners' un ion, took the stand to deny that there arc more than a few miners who do not want to work regular ly. He said every operator has more men ready to t work every day, and 85 or 90 per cent, of, the men will work forty-eight hours a week. The commission adjourned to catch a iast Illinois Central train for Louisville. Decision will be reserved until filing of further evidence and briefs for both sides. . Tho miners wore disappointed at no Immediate relief. THROWS AWAY CHECK FOR 91,500 AS TRASH Hopkinsvllle, Ky., Dec. 21. Ev idently having learned of a large business deal which J. O.
