To the Editor of The News In re
spnse t the query in Peples Forum
of Saturday allow me to make a
tergoricalanswer to those ques
tions for I recognize the right of
The People to know the What and
Whyof the acts of their supposed
servants The board of councilmen
answering the first question Why
was the city judges salary raised
would answer for a minority of the
council In the first place five coun
cilmen were pledged to the act
Secondly In scrutinizing the cel
ebrated Richmond Kycase decid
ed in 3906 in which Judge Benton
decision was reversed by the court
of appeals this latter court held the
police judge under the charter of
fourthclass cities entitled to a dep
uty clerk and after much abstruse
reasoning decided that the city and
not the judge must pay the salary
of the clerk Also that he might act
as his own deputy and receive the
salary for the extra services With
this mandate of the law before our
eyes the board almost unanimously
decided to be agreeable and nol
force the judge to appoint a clerk
and collect by such the salary More
over wo had it authentic that the
incumbent was in a conciliatory mood
and willing to waive all claims foi
the time pastII months 330on
condition that we unanimously voted
him the pay for a deputy The latter
we could not secure therefore the
back pay was allowed On this lat
ter point the city attorney ruled that
no suit would lie for collecting the
claimed back pay but for the sake
of harmony and to prevent litigatior
to the hurt of 0 the citys business it
was allowed with but a single dis
senting vote This answers question
Nos 1 and 2
The answer to question 3 Why
allow the architect so much for city
hall plans 590 or about that It
was the opinion of a minority ap
proaching closely to a majority that
the allowance was excessive The
architects proposal was to charge
2 per cent on the plans but consented
to let the council decide what was an
equitable fee The claim was re
ferred to a committee of the mem
bers of the council who from experi
ence as builders and contractors
were best judges of the value of
such services This committee re
fused to recommend any reduction of
the claim Therefore it was unani
mously allowed presuming it to be a
just one and not exorbitant as at
first supposed Very sincerely yours

neys for Grover C Fish filed a peti
tion Saturday afternoon for a writ
Sjiacklefoid for the purpose of se
curing the possession of Fishs in
fant son from the Welch family ir
Dcrca with whom the child has beer
since about a month before Samuel
EL Welch was killed last spring by
The child was virtually held as rl
prisoner by Welch the attorneys say
for several weeks before his death
and since then it has been carefully
guiirded by the members of the
household including Fishs wife for
the purpose of preventing Fish from
obtaining possession of the child
The Welch family has < refused to
even let the father fee his child

ever enacted in the history of the
county Last April Grover C Fish
shot and killed Samuel E Welch
who was his fatherinlaw in a drug
store in Berea Fish surrendered
himself immediately but was re
leased in the Madison circuit court

The venue of the case was there
after changed to Jessamine county
on application of the commonwealth
on the ground that it could not have
a fair trial if the case was tried in
Madison county because of Welch
character and standing The trial
will take place during the second
week in January in the Jessamine

Mr John W Murphy Gives Reniin
iscenses of the Life of Joel T
Our old friend J W Murphy knew
Joel T Hart intimately
Mr Murphy has given us sonic ad
ditional facts about his life am
The last stone chimney built b
Joel T Hart is at Mr Hortons av
Flat rock in Bourbon county II
was engaged for some weeks on hi
work which he completed in splendid
style meeting the praise of the eu
tiro family Every good rock ha
Joel T Hart cut on it Mr Hal
was asked why he did this7 He re
plied briefly that the day wouK3
come when they would know Il
knew the genius he possessed and hi
answer proved his immortal future
After leaving Mr Hortons he wa
engaged to work for Mr Pat Doyl
at Lexington Mr Doyle was ar
Irishman and I believe was the best
workman in marble and stone Lex
ington ever had His shop was bur
the corner of Upper and Secone
streets This shop had a room 6xf
feet in which Joel T Hart workout
ate and slept This was a dimintitiv
place to shelter a man of such f
grand and splendid genius Here hI
toiled early and late and even Mi
Doyle his boss was no more than
an uneducated boy just beginning u
learn the trade
Mr John S Wilson a druggis
lived the second house from the shop
and at once saw the talent and skil
of Mr Hart and helped him finan
dally This was an incentive U
genius and an honor to Mr Wilson
It was not until Mr Hart cut a
bust of Chief Justice George Robert
son of Lexington that his gem1
was recognized This only lacked
breath to be Mr Robertson
His next model was the Hon John
P Crittenden which was perfect
Then he took a cast of Henry Clay
and went to Florence Italy to begin
his glorious career He cut three
life statues of Mr Clay for which
he received 10000 each
After this he began the figure ofa
woman on which he spent 21 years
stating that it took the Lord that
length of time to accomplish a beau
trial woman His name will never
die as long as the sun beautifies tht
Referring to Woman Triumphant
Mr Murphy says
Mrs Mary Woodward living on I
the corner of Limestone and Consti
tution streets at Lexington Ky of
fered to furnish the money free ifi
the city would employ an engineer
to draw a waterproof and fireproof
building in which to keep Joel T
Harts magnificent statue Woman
Triumphant Many citizens thought
the court house was the proper place
to keep the figurejrso that the thou
sands might gaze upon this immortal l
dream worked outin Carrari marble
YO j i J
Co v
IThe place was sought by thou
sands and the figure was the admi
ration of every person Handmarks
showed upon it and it was cleaned
and finally it was enclosed in a large
glass mold It was still the praise I
of every tongue and remained in
its grandeur until during a school
entertainment in the building some
waste paper and trash caught fire
Many persons wanted to carry the
figure out Others believed the fire
could be extinguished without dam
age The flames increased so rapid
ly that they reached the steeple or
cupalo andsoon consumed the
woodwork of the large bell which
was over this figure and fell crush
ing it to pieces
This was a great loss to mankind

were not for the big holdings of bull
leaders in this wheat trade and the
uncertainty as to what they will do
on a break or bulge there would be a
much better trading market and prob
ably a decline in prices As it is the
pit trade and the country go very
slow about selling on the dips and
stop buying quickly on the swells It
makes a narrow market Argentine
news is conflicting as to the surplus
the estimate this week is 65000000
to 119000000 The foreign markets
most vitally affected seem to regard
the harvest season south of the
Equator as favorable and recent
