EASTERN KENTUCKIANS EYES OPENED BY PROSPECT OF HENRY FORD COAL PROP ERTY PURCHASE The contemplated purchase by Henry Ford of th Elkhorn Fuel Cor poration, a Weat Virginia concern ope-ating in Kentucky and West Vir ginia, haa opened th eyes of Ker. tuckians to the vast wealth of their native state. Included in th proposed purchase is the Eastern Kentucky railroad, a 45-mile road from Riverton, in Green up county, on th Ohio river, U Webbville, in Lawrenc county. This road at prersnt ia serving a portion of the coal fields of Greenup, Carter and Lawrenc countiea, but th great wealth in this section is th und veloped fields. If th plans of Ford ar carried out, it is probable that an additional trnckag will be laid to serve th great outlying fields. With Henry Ford owning the now practically undeveloped Elkhorn Co port at on lands, th part of Kentuc ky which haa been a hidden treasure will be opened to the outside world. Increased transportation facill..es in these fielda will th-ow tht wealth of tastt-n Kentucky within striking distanc of th Blut Grass. World News By J. R. Robertaon, Profcvsor f History and Political ScUac Berea College The Free Stat of Ireland la now a reality, the constitution having been ratified by Parliament and ap proved by the King. Th first Gov error General to be appointed is Timothy Healy, a nativ of Ireland, and an able man. The oath wac ad ministered to him by th Chief Jus tice of England, and ho swore alle giance to th constitution and to th King. The rath waa administered to the Prime Minister Cos grove, and to th speaker of the Dail Eireann by the Governor General. The other ministers and the members of th legislative body received the oath from the speaker. During the whole procedure the-e waa no excitement or unusual disorder. In spit of threat the government seems to have th upper hand and to command the sup port of the majority of the people. The new English ministry has mad ro change in the policy toward he land. The charges mad by Clemenceau in his speeches to th effect that Ger many is arming secretly for a war of revenge is denied by the Commicioner of the Allies in Germany. He say some small arm exist, but then la cor stan tly going on a destruction in accordance with the terms of th treaty of Versailles and that they cannot exist in an amount sufficient to caur alarm. A further charge Is made that Germany and Russia ar bound together by a treaty that Ger man office's are to train the Russi an armies and that the Krupp gun works are to operate in Russia. A treaty waa made at the time of tho Genoa Corference for mutal aid, but no one has supposed that it benefited either aide as yet. While the world is turprised an-J shocked at the execution of th min isters' ia power at th tlm of th Greek defeat in Asia Minor, it ha become known that Prince Andrew, the King'a son, narrowly escaped a similar fate. He owes his life to th ir te-cession of Pope Pius and he is now visiting Rome to express his gratitude to the head of the church. The former prime minister, Venizelos, is in Switzerland, and he has declar ed his approval of th court martial and execution of the ministers, who, he believes, betrayed Greece by lead irg her into an aggressive war, out of which defeat came. ' The head bf the court of officers who condemned the ministers changes a more direct treachery to the army, by causing a movement on Constantinople. The Conference of Central Ameri can countries is now in session in Washington, and they are making up their prog-am for d scussion. It will include a revision of treaties in force since 1907, reduction of armament, creation of tribunals of inqui-y in case of disputes likely to lead to war, an international railroad, and greater uniformity in commercial methoda. Secretary Hughes has been trying to ret the queition of Union of the Statea on the program, but without success so far. Most of the states are ready for it, but Costa Rica stands out against it. There seems to be much of good feeling in the conference, and a possibility of some substantial results. A federation of the Central American States is a thing to be much desired in the in terests of peace and order. The Scandinavian explorer, Nan sen, who haa been occupied of late in relief worit in Russia and the Near East haa expressed the opinion that the racial hatred can only be aolved by a re-distribution of the people. That seems to be Turkey's idea aso, as she has let it be known that the alien Christian populations may have until a certain time to leavt her do main. They ae going in g-eat num bers. Turkey denies the issue of any decree, and the process seems to be going on without opposition from uny source. Considerable anxiety arise from the forecast that such a whole sal removal cf population cannot be mad in the limited time and that massacres ar likely to occur. Th Plain Truth.
