IS PROUD OF CANAL
TAFT REGARDS IT LARGELY AS
THE ACHIEVEMENT OF HIS
ADMINISTRATION.
WHO PUT IN THE SOLDIEPS?
Guestion for Future Historian to An
swer Splondid Werk of Gotthalt,
Gorgaa, Gaillard and Sibert Will
Bo Rewarded.
By GEORGE CLINTON.
Washington. President Taft' Jour
ney to the Panama Canal Zone consti
tutes what will probably be the last
extended trip which he will make
white president of the Vnlted States.
Some persona have wondered why Mr.
Taft cared Just at this time to go to
the Isthmus of Panama and have won
dered if it might not be that his trip
w-as planned largely for the purpose
of taking rest and having a little en
joyment prior to his separation from
the highest office In the land.
The real reason why he Is going to
the Isthmus of Panama Is that he
w&nts to assure himself personally as
well as be can that 'All s well with
the Isthmus" and that the project Is
to bo left to his successor In office
with every assurance that the present
administration has done Its duty by it.
Mr. Taft it Is known feels nn intense
personal Interest In the work on the
Panama canal. He regards It in a
large measure as being the work of
his administration, although his so
regarding it does not prevent hlin, it
Is said, from acknowledging that the
preliminary plans which made It pos
sible wore laid by a previous adminis
tration. The president's personal Interest in
the canal dates back to the time when
he was secretary of war. and when
civilian engineer after civilian engi
neer was appointed to the work of
building, only to resign one after an
other. It w ill be remembered that one
of these engineers received a per
sonal verba castigation from William
Howard Taft that he probably holds
In ear-tingling memory today.
Who Put the Soldiers In?
The canal. It seems to be assured.
Is going to be a success and the ques
tion which the future historian after
proper investigation must answer Is
"Who was responsible for taking the
digging operations out of the hands
of civilians and putting It Into the
hands of the soldiers. Theodore Roose
velt or William H. Taft?
Col. George W. Goethals virtually
has promised that water shall be turn
ed Into the canal throughout Its en
tire length In April next. This It Is
believed will be the beginning of the
end of successful accomplishment.
After it was decided to put a soldier
In charge. It was Secretary of War
Taft who suggested to Theodore
Roosevelt that Colonel Goethals be
given control of the work on the Isth
mus, but the question which no one
has answered yet definitely Is whether
It was Mr. Taft who Insisted that the
civilians should get out and the sol
dier should get In, or whether it was
the suggestion of his chief. Theodore
Roosevelt.
Reward for the Builder.
No one know yet deOnltely what
reward I to be given Colonel Goethals
for hi great enginerlng triumph. It
Is possible that he will be put in
barge of the great canal commission
which will be responsible for the op
erations of the canal and for it main
tenance. Again It Is possible that he j
may be made a full general of the
army, a rank which has been held by I
only four men in the history of the I
. government, Washington, Grant, Sher
man and Sheridan. The most likely
reward perhaps I that Colonel Goeth
als will be made chief of engineer
of the United State army, a position
which he will hold until the time of
his retirement at the age of sixty-four
years, which will give htra nine years
yet of active service.
Among; the others to be rewarded
for their work on the Isthmus will be
Col. William C. Gorgas. who made the
tone Inhabitable from a sanitary
standpoint; David B. Gaillard and
William L. Sibert. lieutenant colonels
of engineers, who have been charged
with the Immediate supervision of the
work on the Gatun dam and at the
Culebra cut. Gaillard and Sibert were
chosen as associates In the canal work
by Colonel Goethals.
In Just what form congress will
how Its appreciation of the work of
Gaillard and Sibert 1 not known, but
It Is possible they may bo promoted
to the rank of brigadier general when
vacancies la that rank shall occur.
Tariff Rovision Prospect.
Before very long Representative
T'nderwood, chairman of the house
committee on way and means,
and his Democratic colleagues of
that body, probably will have a full
understanding of the view of President-elect
Woodrow Wilson on the
subject of tariff revision. Mr. Un
derwood will confer with Mr. Wilson
and will In turn Impart the Informa
tion received to hi committee col
leagues. During th campaign Woodrow Wli
on said that bo wanted th tariff re
vised In such a way that business
would not bo disturbed. The Demo
crats In congress differ to some ox-
. font a to th amount of cutting w hich
can bo dono la the schedules and yet
avoid "scaring business." Th Demo
crat bero understand that tho presi
dentelect will make close study of
th bill which were pot through the
nouso at the last session under tho sn-
' pervlsloa at Mr. Underwood and that
change In the bill will depend ap
on tho result of conference between
the- Incoming president and th con
gressional leaders of hi party.
View Vary In th Party.
To give an Idea of how tho Demo
crat vary In their view of the best
way to approach revision. It might be
said that on Democratic member Mr.
Doremu of Detroit, has been bold
enough to tell his colleague that the
result of the recent election doe not
prove that the majority of tho people
of the United State desire deep cut
Into the body of the rates.
There are views expressed Just
counter to those of Mr. Poremus.
Some of the Democratic party leaders
want the revision to be "as deep a a
well" and they say that the results
will in no wise be disastrous to busi
ness and that the only thing which
keeps the party timorous on the subject
is the assertion of the opposition that
a farllT for revenue only will mean
business disaster and the defeat of
the Democracy at tho next election.
The radical revision Democrat tell
their brethren that the Inst thing to
pay attention to Is the advice of tho
threats of men who want to ea tri
umphant Democracy become defeated
Democracy.
May Not Resemble Former Bill.
Few Republicans and few Progres
sive Republicans In Washington be
lieve apparently that the next Demo
cratic tariff bills will bear any close
resemblance to those formulated by
the ways and means committee at the
last session. Some of the Democrats
hold to the views of the opposition In
this matter, although they content
themselvps with saying that the wis
dom of the ways and mean commit
tee can be trusted.
At the last session the Democratic
tariff bills which passed the house
were sanctioned by the senate only
after their form had been changed.
The compromise In the senate was ef
fected by a combination of the Demo
crats and some of the Progressive Re
publicans who are known as moderate
protectionists. If the Republican aid
had not been forthcoming the bills
which Mr. Underwood's committee
framed and which the house passed
never would have reached the passage
stage In the senate.
President Taft Interposed his veto
of the Democratic-Progressive Repub
lican measures of the last session and
there are so mo critics of the con
gressional action who say that the
bills would not have been passed un
less It was known that the president
was certain to intervene with a veto.
At the extra session which Mr. Wil
son will eall for the purpose of revis
ing the tariff, the customs bills which
are passed are almost certain to be,
signed and therefore tho men who
are responsible for their passage roust
be prepared to take the full responsi
bility for the laws when they go Into
effect.
Lever Bill In Senate.
At the last session the bouse
of representative passed a bill
framed by Representative Asbury
P. Lever of South Caroline which has
for Its object what may be called In
a sense a subsidy by the government
In behalf of the agricultural interests
of the United States. In congress ag
riculture has been spoken of as the
"greatest profession," and the Idea
of the bill is to combine a government
appropriation with an equal appropri
ation from each state which will grant
It for the purpose of paying agricul
tural demonstrators who will go to
the different farms In their allotted
territory to give to the farmer the
benefit of experience and advice in
the matter of intensive agriculture.
The Lever bill la now before the
senate, and if It passes and is signed
by the president, as It probably will
be. It will virtually at once become a
law. If, however, the senate falls to
pass It at this session the measure
will fail and work on It must bo be
gun all over again if It is the Inten
tion of the promoter to continue their
labor In it behalf. All bills die when
a congress dies, and this congress
dies on March 4 next.
Farmers Should 8tudy Bill.
The Lever bill bus been mentioned
in these dispatches prior to this.
There ba been a good deal of inter
est In the measure, but It is suggested
to the agriculturists of tba country
that they get copies of the bill, study
it and find out If It meets with their
approval In all its details. Congress
Is apt to pass a bill which Is backed
by letter of approval from the men
and the communities supposed to be
benefited by It, and It Is likely to
kill a bill If th letter concerning it
how marked disapproval or If ap
proval and disapproval are about
evenly divided.
The Lever bill call for a federal
appropriation of f3.000.000 to be ox
tended over a period of ten year,
with the state of the Union subscrib
ing an equal amount. The author of
the bill lays that Delglutn and other
European countries through the .htr De
duction of lntenstv farming methods
are producing from two and one-half
to three time a much per acre at
America. Mr. Lever ay that were
this country to approach tho European,
scale It would be equivalent to the
discovery of a colony equal in sice to
tho present territory of tbi country.
Tb support for tho Lover bill
comes from both parties In congress,
a fact which 1 true also of th oppo
sition to It. It I proposed to pay
farm demonstrator salaries, one-half
to bo paid by the stat and one-hxlf
to bo paid by tho National govern
ment. The appointment of tho demon
strator and tbo control of their work
la to be entirely In charge of tbo an
tborltle of th agricultural collet
of tho state In which tbo dertoosU'

Frcnkforl, Ky. While . prospective
Investor have been dazzled with the
ipsv.tacular rise In values of fruit
;ands In the North and Southwest,
'.housonda of miles away, one Ken
tucky teacher ha taken advantage of
his scientific knowledge, Invested bis
savings at home, and now produces
,t financial yield quite as Imposing as
anything the valleys of the Rockies
.?an show, and right here In the do-
uplsed and neglected "pauper coun
ties" of Kentucky, on M lund, fro:n
which the timber had been stripped
and the slope left shaggy with brush
end small trees.
Three years ago Prof. G. D. Smith,
of tho science department of the East
ern Kentucky -State Normal, who, by
the way, aroused the Interest In Row
an county by which Its people secured
the first demonstration orchard proj
ect, bought some land In Roekcai.tle
county. He cleared it and planted 50
acres In apples, peach, cherry and
plum treeR, where he Is experimenting
with 250 varieties to ascertain which
Is best suited M the soil and climate.
He also planted strawberries, and has
demonstrated that tha Arioma variety
reaches Its state of greatest perfection
In the Kentucky mountains. Besides
these he planted 150,000 forest trees
black locust and walnut, hardy catalpa,
maple and linden. His peach tree,
1.400 of them, and 300 cherry and
plum trees will come into bearing this
year. He spent all told $3,000 devel
oping the place, and recently he re
fused ?20,000.for the tract.
Prof. Smith said that during his In
vestigation he found that the moun
tain people had planted their orchards
In the valleys, where the frost killed
their trees and the hills obscured the
sunshine, instead of on the mountain
benches and In the coves. The hill
sides, he said, are fertile in many
planes, and will produce more corn
than the fildegraas, when property cul
tivated.
COAL LAND REPORTED SOLD,
Tract of S00 Acres Involved In th
Deal.
Harlan, Ky. The Harlan Coal Min
ing Company is reported to have sold
to -.the Clover Fork Coal Coaipun;-.' w
tract of about 500 acres of land Im
mediately adjoining the latter's trajut
at Kitt's Kenneth Mcguire. president
of the Harlan Coal Mining Company),
declined to mention the price at which
the land was sold, but the entire con
sideration is said to be between $40,
000 and J.Vi.OOO. and to represent a
good advance In the value of the land.
The five mines In operation in Har
lan county are loading upward of 2,000
ions daily when they have full car
supply, and the coke ovens at Ben
ham are loading from 000 to 700 tons
daily of coke for the International
Harvester Company fct Chicago. Three
new mines will be running before lor.g,
and It Is predicted that during the
year 1913 Harlan county's new field
will ship not less than Gl'0,000 tons
of coal and coke.

geologists are puziled in their efforts
to account for the presence of a small
river running 200 feet above tho water
line of Dix river. Several large

cording to Mr. Dallam, Is without
foundation of law, as were the arrests
of the men.
Mr. Dallam said tho tanlitvllle Rail
way Company was given permission
for a right of way by the Fiscal Court
some time ago, and that the statutes
of the state permit the company to
use any county road for its purpose.

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.
Ashland, Ky. Seven men wero
killed and the lives of others are be
lieved to have been lost when a west
bound Chesapeake & Ohio railroad
freight train crashed through a weak
ened bridge across Guyaudotte river at
(Juynmlotte, W. Va.
The accident was spectacular. A
crew of thirty or more Iron worker
waa employed installing a double track
system across the bridge when the
freight train approached. A few left
their posts, it Is said, believing the
bridgo unsafe.
When near the center of the struc
ture there was a crash and tho bridge
crumbled. The heavy train shot Into
tho water and the bridge debris cov
ered the train wreckage.
The C. & O. has been rebuilding the
bridge across the Guyandotte river In
order to make room for a double track.
The new bridge was nearly completed,
but the middle span was supported by
false work to bod it until the abut
ments should have been completed.
It was thought that this work was
not as substantial aa It should have
been, and all train crcs had warn
ings to proceed over it with caution.
This being true, Engineer Webber
brought his train to a standstill before
crossing the bridge, and then pro
ceeded with his heavy train and a
large Micgdo engine. The pressure
was too great. The'falue work gave
way and the train was tumbled into
the waters below.
