Need of an institution for. the care of the criminally insane was expressed by Thomas A. Hall, member of the Board of Control, who has just re turned from Hopkinsville. He said this could be provided by the erection cf a building at one of the state hospitals. Six convicts from the Frankfort Re Cormatory have been adjudged insane, paroled and transferred to the Eastern State Hospital. "Their comroitment under present conditions," Mr. Hall said, "necessitates the employment of additional help just to look after them. All sorts of mechanical restraint, which used to be in vogue in hospitals for the insane, have been abolished, and the most violent patients, by careful management and good treatment, soon become quiet and are easily handled; , a different proposition, as many of this class are criminals by instinct, danger ous and violent, and never respond to 1 good treament. but are constantly on the alert to escape, and will resort to violence to attain their ends, even to the committing of murder. This class should be kept apart from the harm less classes; but we have no separate place in which to confine them." State Has Unpaid Bills of Million oiace inspector uooapasior nus made his report on the condition of the state treasury at the close of busi ness on January 31, as follows: Balance in sinking fund, $129,235.83; balance in school fund, $144,623.82; balance in general expenditure fund, $127,450..12j total balance in treasury, $401,319.37; outstanding warrants, 11.453,823.92. The state of Kentucky at the end of the fiscal year will be $2,225,000 "to the bad," was the statement made by Atty. Gen. James Garnett in his argu ment to the court of appeals. Gen. Garnett said that, notwithstanding the increased revenues, the state could not met its- indebtedness, and that the deficit this year; not counting the thou sands' of dollaTs that will be necessary to pay the confederates' pensions, would be practically $750,000. The argument was made in the cas of Rhea, treasurer, vs. Newman, com missioner of. agriculture. Newman sued Rhea to compel him to stamp as interest-bearing warrants for 530,000 appropriated by the last session of the general assembly for the department of agriculture. Commission Hopes to Keep Keys. It is probable that the Prison Com mission will succeed in keeping R. N. Keys, of Calloway county, in the serv ice t to. look.--after youths discharged from the House of Reform, notwith standing the opinion o the Attorney General's department that there is no law authorizing the appointment of more than one employment or parole agent by the commission. The law re lating to the House of Reform author izes the appointment of whatever em ployes the commission considers neces sary, and by changing the language of the resoltion so as to avoid duplica tion of employment agents, one of whom is already serving to look after prisoners paroled from the prisons, it may reach Keys as an attache of the House of Reform. Chairman Daniel E. O'Sulllvan said that without such an agent it is impossible for the commis sion to know what becomes of the youths when hey leave the institution. Women on the Program. Commissioner of Agriculture J. W, Newman anuounced that among the women speakers at the State Farmers' Institute, to be held In Paducahwill be Mrs. W. M.

Scutari's governor has been killed .and the important positions of Rushati and Bardenjolt have been captured by 60,000 Monte negrins and Servians bombarding Scutari, say Balkan war dispatches to London papers. Taking an oath of victory or death, Enver Bey has em barked for an unknown destination with all Turkish troops that were on the Asiatic coast of the Sea of Marmora. Fighting between the Balkan allies and Turkish forces at Gallipoli and Adrlanople continue, but in the ab sence of independent reports the con flicting accounts from official sources provide no basis for critical judgment of what has happened. ' The most daring feat of the war was performed by Captain Maraltrais. a Greek army aviator, who flew over the straits of the Dardanelles in a hydroplane and dropped three bombs Into the arsenal at Maldes, near the southern point of the Gallipoli penin sula. According to a dispatch from Con stantinople the residents of Gallipoli are fleeing panic-stricken before the advance of the Bulgarian troops.
