FEBRUARY 4. 1914
Senator Hall and his excellent com
mittee of the Kentucky Senate have done
and are still doing pood work for the
people of this State in investigating our
educational and eleemosynary institu
tions. We particularly admire the spir
it that appears to animate this commit
tee in the pursuance of its work; a spirit
both conservative and fair; a spirit of
wanting to build up, not pull down; a
.pirit that while seeking to protect the
Slate's financial interest is yet big
enough, far-seeing enough to look beyond
the dollar and see the good, the uplift
for the great common people that our
institutions, assisted by reasonable finan
cial help from the State, are capable of.
Many of the recommendations made by
Senator Hall's committee, we believe,
will redound to the good of the State
financially and yet not in the least im
pair the usefulness of the institutions,
but rather add to their usefulness.
While this is true in the main, we do
believe their recommendations as to the
Eastern Normal if carried out will be a
berious error, a result that Senator Hall
and his associates do not want. We of
Eastern Kentucky, who daily come in
contact with the advantages to a large
number of our boys and girls, in but a
few years to become the men and wo
men, the fathers and mothers of our
State, can see the benefits already man
ifesting themselves in many ways; nota
bly, in the better grade of teachers in
our country schools, the uplift of the
character of our teachers as reflecting
itself in their pupils.
As to to the sale at this lime of the
Eastern Normal farm, we believe it
would be a mistake. It has not bad a
fair trial as yet. It is the belief of a
large number of our most successful
farmers that the farm can and will be
made a valuable asset and a source of
revenue. It must be borne in mind
that while Slate Examiner Goodpaster
has recommended the sale of the farm,
that his predecessor in office, lion. Mc
Kenzie Todd, if we remember correctly.
strongly recommended the purchase of
it. This is simply a difference of opinion
between men, for we have great regard
for Mr. Goodpaster and his methods.
We admire him, but believe his judg
ment in this case is in error.
Be it remembered, also, that the farm
was purchased by the unanimous vote
of the Board of Regents. This Board is
composed of men of the highest charac
ters; men who have made success of
their own financial affairs, and as above
said, the farm experiment has not been
given a sufficient trial yet. These men,
while loyally submitting to the will of
the General Assembly, are not yet satis
fied as to the futility of the enterprise.
Try it oat thoroughly and if not a suc
cess, it can be readily sold at full value
at any time. But to sell it just now will
be a mistake. Of this we have no doubt
It is almost the universal opinion. The
Farmers' Union of this county, an or
ganization numbering nearly if not fully
1,000 representative farmers of this coun
ty, held a meeting in this city Monday
of this week and by resolutions entered
a protest against both the sale of the
farm and the cutting down of the appro
priation. We have this information di
rect from Dr. Martin, the organizer and
earnest worker for that organization.
We trust, too, that the annual appro
prialion will not be cut down. Already
President Crabbe and the Hoard of Reg
ents have made their plans and laid the
foundation fur a great institution for the
boys and girls w ho cannot hope for an
education elsewhere, upon the basis of
the original annual appropriation, and
the culling down of this would be a se
rious blow. No funds have been nvsappro
printed; no extravagance in management
has been shown. Until these things take
place, why enact any revolution which
may cripple the institution? Ninety per
cent, of the Eastern Normal students
go back lo their homes belter educated;
trained to think and with higher and
nobler ideals of life and good 'citizen
ship. Why should not Kentucky have
two great Normal Schools the Eastern
and the Western for these are the
schools to lift Kentucky from the unen
viable position she has heretofore occu

We trust Senator Hall and his col
leagues will not insist upon the recom
mendations that the daily press attrib
to th( m. Give us a little time, Senator,
and when "weighed" we will not be
found "wanting,."
On of the early acts of the Kentucky
Legislature after convening on January
6, was the passage of what is known as
the "Extra Help" bill, appropriating
about 112,000 for tne employment of
extra help doorkeepers, clerks, stenog
raphers, etc. We are not in a position
to know whether tl2 000 extra help in
addition to what was alredy employed
was needed or not. Certain it is that
112.000 extra help for a sixty-day ses
sion 1200 a day ought to employ, at
fair compensation, a big lot of help,
"and then some." This is not the point,
however, we are driving at. The bill
was passed and sent to the Governor for
his signature. At the expiration of ten
days, the time allowed by law for the
chief executive's approval by his signa
lure or his disapproval by bis veto, the
bill was returned not signed and therefore
became a law without the Governor's
signature. Upon the return of the un
signed bill the Governor sent a message
to the General Assembly giving as his
reason for not signing the bill that he
felt that the General Assembly was in a
better position than he to know what
extra help was needed. An excellent
reason on its face. Ii strikes us, though,
that in ten days time he could have fully
informed himself as to the situation and
its requirements. In the latter part of
his message the Governor' informs the
General Assembly that the bill as passed
by that body was contrary j.o the Consti
tution of the State of Kentucky, and
therefore illegal. If this be true, and we
do not doubt it, for the Governor is him
self a learned lawyer and thoroughly
familiar with the Constitution, then he
should have placed the seal of his dis
approval, bis veto, upon the bill upon
the ground, if for no other reason, than
of its ilUgalitf. This would have ended
the whole matter.
Upon return of the unsigned bill and
in the face of the Governor's message,
Speaker Terrill. of the Lower House,
and Presdent McDermott, of the Senate,
proceeded to appoint the extra help and
therebj pu the bill into effect. .State
Auditor Bosworth has refused to pay war
rants drawn on him in paymentor extra
help under this bill until Attorney Gen
eral Grrnett gives his official opinion as
to its legality. The strange part of the
hole proceeding is that three high offi
cials of the State, the Governor, Speaker
Terrill and President McDermott should
condone the putting into execution of a
bill already passed upon by the Governor
as illegal, and to say theleasi of it,
strorngly suspected in other quarters of
being contrary to the Constitution of the
State and therefore illegal.
The investigation of the Eastern Ken
tucky State Normal School has disclos
ed conditions and facts which are not
yet fully explained. However, dispite
the fact that the president of the Board
of Regents have exceeded their legal au
thority, it appears that they have acted
with a view to increasing the usefulness
and efficiency of the institution in ques
tion. One of the aims of the Eastern
Normal is to teach teachers how to
leach the children of Eastern Kentucky
to be useful and prosperous citizens. In
the past we have been preparing ti e
rural pupils for teachers "so they could
make a living without work," apparent
ly unmindful of the fact that a large
part of our population depends on the
products of the soil for a livelihood.
The teachers from the Eastern Normal
School have begun to create an interest
in scientific agriculture in the rural dis
tricts. Let the' good work go on. It
takes time to bring about a revolution
in methods of farming. Give the East
ern Normal School a chance. Irvine
A bill has been introduced in the Leg
islature at the instigation of one of Ken
tucky's most admirable women; a wo
man who has done as much or more to
wipe out illiteracy in the State than any
other one person within its confines.
The object of the bill referred to is to
create an illiteracy commission lo inves
tigate the standing of Kentucky in the
matter of adult illiteracy and to aid in
eliminating it This measure will carry
no appropriation, but calls for voluntary
service and is one of the most humane
measures that has ever been offered to
the General Assembly. If we can af
ford a Fish and Game commission, a
Library commission and various other
commissions, surely Ave can afford one
to interest the teachers and people of
Kentucky in aiding and enlightening the
adult illiterates of ihe State. The Cli
max predicts easy sailing for the- meas
ure, as its passage will not take from
the treasury one penny, and we cannot
believe a single Representative will cast
his vote against a measure of such vital
importance, especially when it does not
incur any expense on the tax payers of
the State.
Representative Huff has introduc
ed a bill in the Kentucky House prohib
iting women over 18 years of age from

than ?i3 inches around the bottom. If
this becomes a law we shall ask Repre

hibiting men from wearing Adam's ap

inches and showing above their collars
more than five inches. Cynthiana Dem
Congressman Stanley is claiming
the entire State in his race for United
States Senate, according to an inter
view with Mr. Cromwell, political writer
for the Cincinnati Enquirer. We be

concede Madison, and a few other coun
ties would go ag-tinst him.

Circuit court convened yesterday
morning with Judge J. M. Benton and

to the grand jury was strong and cover

of i he common practice of carrying con
cealed weapons and the dreadful conse
quences that have resulted in this and
other States and on his subject com
mented on the widespread determina
tion and influence that is being brought
to bear in an effort to stamp out this
promiscuous and perniscious h a b i t.
which is largely responsible for the
number of. murders that are being com
mitted throughout the State. He ex
plained. to the jury that houses of ill
fame in this city could, ii there were
any, be closed and the inmates force! to
to leave, as had in a large degree been
done in Clark county.
The Instructions along the line of cor
ruption in elections were vigorous and
the jury was charged to investigate and
ascertain if any illegal methods was used
by any candidate in the November elec
tion.. Judge Benion spoke of the lenien
cy of the court towards those who were
indicted at the October term, but stated
positively that hereafter those indicted
for this offense would be given a jury
trial and its verdict would be final He
further stated that any official convicted
on this charge, even if granted pardon,
would forfeit the office to which be was

Dr. Hortons Lecture Monday
In the Epworth League course of lec
tures being beard from time to time- in
the MeLhodist church of this city. Dr.
B. C. Horton, pastor of that church, de
livered Monday night one of the most
entertaining lectures that has been
heard in this city for many a day. His
subject, "Some Pictures Seen in a Home
ly Gallery," was a catchy and attractive
one and he handled it in a masterly way.
It was a delight from start to finish.
The speaker showed himself an artist
in protraying real life. His pictures
were so vivid that his audience saw and
heard what the pictures represented.
Some of his pictures were so ridiculous
ly funny that the audience was convuls
ed with laughter. We can still see and
hear the preacher with Asthma sailing
down the street through rain and dark
ness with his made-up rain coat on.
Another picture was of an invalid hus
band in a Pullman car with the wrong
man forgetful of the mustard plaster
Dr. Horton portrayed pictures of the
sublime until his audience felt lifted up
till only the high and holy seemed worth
while. .
The speaker impressed upon his hear
ers the great influence that pictures ex
ert in the home and that they not only
help mould home character, but that
the lesson taught by the picture reveals
in unmistakable terms the character of
the one who possesses or admires, the
picture. - .
The lecture throughout was greatly
enjoyed by those who heard it. Those
who failed to hear it can never know
how much they missed.

Everything is lovely and the goose hangs high. The Madison House
is still doing business at the same old stand, still leading this market in
pounds and prices. Last week was one of the best of the season with us.
We sold about 375,000 pounds, brining our total sales to ovei 3,000.000, out
of about 5,800,000 pounds sold on the entire market. The offerings for the
week have been for the most part of lower grades than usual on this mar
ket but prices have been well maintained all along the line. Good tobac
cos are in active demand and when they have appeared have commanded
strong to high prices. Our market has been strong throughout the season.
Some of the best crop averages have been made last week; a few of
them follow: Smith & Agee sold 4.150 pounds as follows: 170 at 17c, 200
at 17 l-2c, 220 at 17 l-4c, 225 at 17 3 4c, 185 at 17 1 4c. 105 at 17 l-2c 190 a

We must again thank all who sold with us and all who wished to
sell with us and couldn't. We appreciate all that you have done for us or
that you have tried to do for us. If you have any tobacco left unsold, we
are on the job all the time and will do everything we can to get prices that
will please you. Remember we have had more experience than has any
other market here and it is yours without the cost of an extra penny.
Again thanking you. we are gratefully yonrsi
