JUDGE NEWMAN IS
Judge G. W. Newman, of Hancock
county, is not pleased with the good
roads meeting held in Owensboro on
June 11, and is threatening to "bolt."
In fact he does not recognize the vote
taken to the effect that the next meet
ing of the delegates from the Ohio
river counties would be held in
Owensboro after June 18.
Judge C. W. Wells, who received
S letter from Judge Newman pester
day, takes exception to several of 'the
statements made by the Hancock
county officials, and has written to
him and all of the county judges in
terested in the Ohio River route, a
letter, setting forth his position on
the matter of highways with federal
aid. Judge Wells insists that the so
called back counties be given a hear
ing at all times.
Judge Newman's Letter.
Below is the letter Judge Wells re
ceived from Judge Newman:
"The meeting held at Owensboro
on June 11th., was entirely without
results, insofar as the Ohio river
route is concerned; it was voted at
that time without the majority of
Ohio river counties, that the meeting
would be held in Owensboro after
June 18th., 1919.
"I know of no reason at present
for calling a meeting of the Ohio
river route, but will be glad to do so
when it seems necesary to me, or by
request of the majority of the coun
ties bordering on the Ohio river, from
Louisville to Paducah.
"I have written Rodman Wiley
that all the counties in the Ohio river
route, stand ready at this time to pay
their part of cost of road construc
tion, and earnestly requested him to
designate the Ohio river route.
"I earnestly request all county
judges in the Ohio river route, to ad
vise and suggest to me at any time
any thing that will have a tendancy
to help our cause. .
"The next meeting may or may not
be held at Owensboro, Ky."
Judge Wells' Reply.
The reply of Judge Wells to Judge
Newman follows in full:
"Yours of June 18th is a surprise
to me. Presumably it is a circular
sent to all the county judges. I am
therefore sending a copy of this letter
to each of them.
"Your first statement is 'The meet
ing held in Owensboro on June llth.,
was entirely without result, insofar
as the Ohio river route is concerned."
I assume that you did not intend that
statement as a criticism of the meet
ing; for my recollection is that in a
conversation that morning you said
to me in substance that you knew of
nothing that could or ought to be
done at the meeting.
"Your second statement is one
which surprises me, viz: 'It was
voted at that time without the ma
jority of Ohio river counties, that the
meeting would be held in Owensboro
after June 18th, 1919.' It is true that
acting as chairman of the meeting, I
took an aye and nay vote on the
question of adjourning and holding
the next meeting in Owensboro after
June 18th , instead of having the coun
ties called. No one objected to the
manner of the vote at that time. Lat
er when you seemed to question it,
I offered to have the counties called
to take the vote by counties; but you

LAST ROAD MEETING.
withdrew your objection and no one
asked for a vote by counties. It
therefore seems to me improper for
you to be now questioning the action
of the meeting.
"I agree with you that there seems
no reason at present for calling a
meeting of the Ohio river route. It
will certainly be proper for you to
call a meeting when requested by the
majority of, ttie counties in the organ
ization. Your statement upon 're
quest of tUe majority of the counties
bordering on the Ohio river, from
Louisville to Paducah,' ignores at
least three counties, Ohio, McLean
land Webster, which are members of
.the organization, although they do
not border on the, river. Possibly
your use of the expression 'bordering
on the Ohio river,' was an oversight.
Request May Be Premature.
"I note that you say that you have
written Mr. Wiley that all the coun
ties are ready to pay their part of the
costs and 'earnestly requested him to
designate the Ohio river route.' I
am not quite sure that this earnest re
quest is premature, in view of the re
quest made by the organization at the
meeting held the llth.. that all pro
posed routes be surveyed. I under
stood that you approved that re
quest for the reason that Mr. Gal
braith, the federal engineer, had fail
ed to go over or report on one of the
routes through your county. It is
possible that this route has since been
inspected and reported on either by
a federal or state engineer. How
ever, there ' is one other proposed
route which had not been surveyed,
viz: the more direct route from
Marion through Webster and Mc
Lean counties to Owensboro. It
seems that by some misunderstand
ing between Mr. Galbraith and the
officers of Crittenden county, Mr. Gal
braith, on going east from Marion,
went over only the route through
Union and Henderson counties. As
I thought you knew, Crittenden coun
ty joined with Webster and McLean
in requesting that the direct or back
route be also surveyed and the re
quest made at the recent meeting of
the organization certainly contemp
lated a. survey of that route. And you
know I have always taken great in
terest in that route and after the re
cent meeting I wrote to Mr. Wiley
and suggested that it would be ad
visable and would help Chittenden
county carry its bond election on the
18th., if an engineer could start over
that route before the 18th. Mr. Wiley
did request division engineers C rosier
and Hollingsworth to inspect this
route, and I understand they are now
on the route. 1 do not know of any
other proposed routes that have not
been inspected; but I am strongly of
the opinion that no request should go
to Mr. Wiley to designate this Ohio
river route until we are sure that all
proposed routes, where there is any
reasonable chance of their being fin
anced, have been inspected by some
one properly designated by Mr.
Wiley. His action above mentioned
with reference to the route between
Marion and Owensboro indicates that
he will grant all reasonable requests
to have proposed routes inspected.

a delightful arrangement, for the
house itself will be something that

its owners' tastes and interests. Dur

A little atelier has been built for Mr.

the rear of the house overlooking the
lake, and here the kiln, Mrs. Haswell's
arrangements for batik, tied and dyed

addition to the big studio within the

The Day for Signing
German Administration Sees
Danger Lurking If There
Is Further Delay.
A special despatch by the A. P.
from Weimar says that the National
Assembly voted on Monday after
noon to sign the peace terms uncon
ditionally, the German government
having succeeded in overcoming the
opposition of those who insisted on
The date for signing the terms had
not been settled but it will be this
week probably Tuesday or Wednes
day. It is said that the complete surrend
er of the enemy was not surprising to
President Wilson, Clemenceau and
Lord George, the three men who have
shouldered the responsibility of the
allied negotiations. They were of
the firm belief that there was no
other course for the German govern-
Imetit to pursue than that of submit
ting to the Allies.
There is no doubt but what Wilson
Clemenceau and Lord George be
came impatient with the dilly-dalling
of the enemy in signing the peace
terms, and they were prepared to re
sort to drastic measures. At any
rate, the Germans evidently saw dan
ger lurking in the future, and so their
decision was quickly made.
Judge Henry Moorman To Be A
Distinguished Guest Given By Ky.
Post Of American League.
Owensboro. Ky., June 18. Brig.
General Logan Feland, of Owensboro
and Hopkinsville, commander of the
"th Marines and winner of the dis
tinguished service cross and French
Croix de Guerre, will be a guest of
honor at the Fourth of July celebra
tion at Chautauque Park to be given
Daviess county soldiers and sailors by
the local post of the American Legion.
In addition to Gen. Feland other dis
tinguished men who will be present
are Lieut. Col. Samuel Wilson, of
Lexington, who served overseas dur
ing the late war, and Judge Henry
DeHaven Moorman, of Hardinsburg,
who also saw service with the Amer
ican army. He is temporary com
mander of the Kentucky post of the
American Legion and will explain the
purpose of the organization.
The feature that will probably have
the greatest appeal to the ex-doughboy
and the ex-gob will be the bar
becued dinner served by the Rotary
Club. Lots of good "chow" will be
in the mess shack and there won't
be any mess kits to wash after the
feast or any K. P. duty either. Fully
1,200 Daviess county soldiers are in
terested in this celebration and a
crowd of between 5,000 and 10,000
people is expected.
