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.

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.
