been a slight change In the route b
the railroad which Is now being built
from Loitlsvlllo to Paducah and l la 1
being backed by the Loulsvlllo ntid
NnihvUe Railroad company says the
CourierJournal The line as stated
before will bo from lnlll vlllo over
the Henderson route to Irrlof ten
from Irvlngton over the Kordijvlllo
branch to Fordsvlllo Already a lino
Is being built from Madlsonvlllo to
Hartford and a line of about twelve
miles from Hartford to Fordsvllle
will have to be built giving a lino
from Loulsvlllo to Madlionvllle
Already tho Louisville and Nash
vlllo operates a lino from Madison
vllle to Providence a distance of ten
miles The change has bon made In
the rotio west from Providence In
stead of building the road from Prov
Idonce to Marlon as first Intimated
will be built to Princeton where
two lines of the Illinois Central cross
From Princeton tho line will bo built
to Paducah a distance of GO miles
and from there to Metropolis 111
whew a northern connection will be
The lino from MadUouvllIo to
Princeton said a woll pasted bus
ness man will ponelrato the rich
est coal fields of tha state which so
tar had but poor outlet What tho
Louisville fid Nashville Railroad Co
after Is a direct line from the coal
elds of Western Kentucky to Louis
ville which It has not now The Illi
nois Central has practically had a
monopoly on the coal business from
Western Kentucky to Louisville up
lo this time No one thing has haJI I
much to do with the recent scarcity
Coal and of cars Two lines pene
crating the Tjoal Holds will give a bet
tor outlet and give all operators a
chanre to put their coal on the Louis
vKlc market
Although ibo LouUvlllq and Nash
vlllo officiate are uriwllllng to say
that they arc behind tho construc
tion of the road from Madlsouvlllo lo
Hartford yet I know It to bo a fact
MtI1fAAar t p i44iIAaaAfwthd
Icidl1l orJclaia of tho Loulsvlllo and
Nashville railroad was very anxious
find out whore the CourierJour
nal got Its Information that the com
pany was preparing to invade the Pa
ducah territory with a lino from
Louisville A better thing could novo
happen for Ioulsvlllo than the con
structlon of the line Invading tho
Pastern Kentucky coal fields by tho
Louisville and Nashville and It Is
absolutely a saver for tho coal opera
Tho reason why the percentage
f cars furnished coal operators
along the Illinois Central railroad In
Kentucky Is smaller than the Louis I
vllle and Nashville railroad Is evi i
dent to mo The most of the coal on
tho Illinois Central is hauled to Chi
sago whcttai the Ixuilsvlllo and
Nashville takes It to Louisville or
Cincinnati Of course there Is 110I
blame against the Illinois Central for
wanting long hauls and wanting to
play Into the hands of Chicago but
Loulsvlllo people are Interested in
the growth jtJ development of Lou
lsvlllo and Kentucky 1
In a few respects tho qualities of
the people of Japan arc worth till I t 1
study of tho most advanced races otI I
the earth but It Is easy to go Into anl l
Idealization of those points far be
ond their material value Tho polite
ness of tho Japanese their considers I
thou for each other and freedom fr0l11I I
row dylam are commendable traits and
proofs of civilization Their poetic
enjoyment of nature has a kinship
with the spirit of the ancient Greeks
Their courage which has n basis of
fatalism Is admitted In this partic
ular they equal tho Turks In patrl
otic devotion mixed with unmeasured
pride in an extremely old dynasty
they are capable of any sacrifice
Patient industry adaptive quickness
and manual skill are among theirbest
capabilities Some of these charac
teristics arc due to the dense ifoijji
latlon of the few Islands compoafhg
tho empire Whore tho average of
people Is hundreds to the square mile
there must bo civility or a state of
war Minute training Is a result o 1
crowded conditions where the farm
aro small patches of fund and the
handicrafts ure adjusted to email
means arid How wages Freedom from
rufflanUni la an unquestionable n
tno nnd like the politeness + comes 1 In
some degree from the dermson which
a populous society Is I carried on
Quickness In Imitation Is an evident
Japanese gift
Out to tray that wo have as much
to learn from the Japanese as the
Japanese have to learn from us Is on
extravagant statement of the case
Racially speaking In the physical i
sense the people of the United States I
have no desire or Intention to take
anything from the Mongolian stock
Tho Japanese are undersized and not t
handsome according to any occidental
standard No Intermingling of their
strain of blood Is wanted orcould be
viewed ns other than a lowering of
tho highest physical development and
personal comeliness Were as
good as you Is something tho yel
low races cannot assert Ina physical
sense There lsn proper pride of
pure blood and the white race will
tolerate no yellow or other blend of a
degenerate nature In this funda
mental respect Americana propose to
learn nothing from the Japanese The
Japanese are more than welcome to
keep their own strain of blood their
type of countenance and stature from
any American admixture A barrier I
line exists hero that can never be I
crossed and nothing can go Into treat
los that will alter the natural fiatI I
against mlscegenatory Ideas There I
aro already too many mongrels In the
world and the white race Is nctln I
favor of their Increase Between thoI I
white and yellow mess little In com
mon exists In social methods and asI I
pirations While the Japanese oreI I
an Interesting and deserving people
Americans do not want them for kin
Jsot much of value was obtained 1
from the Japanese when communlca i 1
Lion was lust opened about fifty years i
ago Thpyhavo learned a vast deal I
from the white race and been acute 1
In tho application of tho borrowed j
knowledge Their navies and military
science are modeled from the nations I
of the west Their machinery and
practical science are copied from the t
same source and so aro their rail i
roads electric appliances and com I
merclal methods Their constitutional d
forms of government are whotty Imitative s
tative Tho torpedoes with which I
they stole n march on the Russian o
ships wero Invented by Americans t
Englishmen or Frenchmen Their Inti
est war was with a topheavy auto t
cracy bent on wicked territorial og t
gresslon They would be foolish to
plumo themselves on that conflict 03 <
a truo test of racial superiority Or
equality When the truth Is calmly J i
analyzed It will be perceived that the
people of the United States have litI j
tie that they can learn from tho JapJ
aneso with any advantage to them c
selves Tho progress of tho hlte1 t
race was satisfactory during the cent t
urJos that Japan was sealed against c
all foreign Intercourse What went t
