Say Express Men, is Not Cut-;
ting Business
To the question as to how tho par
eels post is getting along at the Hop
kinsville postoffico Tuesday mornig",
came the direct answer, "Getting
along all right " The answer is sus
ceptible of two interpretations: One
is that the business as to volume is
satisfactory and inert asing; the
other, not much business, and we
clerks are not worked to death. Of
course the first, is the correct one.
The clerical force at the postofRce
is always a busy 1 it cf people aid
keep their work well up, though the
recent beginning of the new system'
of the department entails more work
on the clerks.
The officials of the express com
panies in Louisville met Monday, and
after feeling their ground carefully,
told the Louisville Board of Trade
that the parcels post system 'had re
duced the handling of smaller pack'
ages leis thnn 6 per cent , while at
the same time the earnings cf the
companies in Louisville had increased
10 per cent.
There is one advantage the ex
press companies have over the par
cels past system; Packages that
are barred from the mails on account
of being too heavy havo to be sent
by express, and then the express
comp nies have the chance, if they
so choose, to pile oh charges ad libi
Have Come Again and Tobacco
is Moving.
Thus far this has been a busy
week with everybody that has any
thing to do. Tobacco, both stripped
arid on the stalk, has been coming in
freely, and now that tobacco is in
condition to take down and. handle,
a general revival of business, which
slumped a little after the holiday
trade was over, is imminent. It
can't be long before the large ware
houses will have to employ extra
force to unload1 the wagons as they
line up a quarter of a mile long wait
ing for their turn.
Theiuose floor men have been sell
ing what has teen delivered at prices
satisfactory to the raisers, but the
quality has not been of the kind
most desired at this time, though
there were some mediumly fair lots
taken at an advance of about a cent
per pound last week. Though only
about 150,000 pounds were Bold, on
account of weather conditions, the
offerings were all of low grade. The
season is almost unprecedentedly be
hind this year and what has been
disposed of on the loose floors is al
most altogether the product of small
farmers, who have defied weather
conditions to a great extent in or
der to obtain money on their crops
for family and farm expenses.
Made Defendant In Damage
Suit For $200.
Through his attorneys, R. R.
Myers, a citizen of the county, filed
suit it the CircuitCourt last Tuesday
against the Public Service Company
in the sum of $100 for alleged per
sonal injuries and $100 for injuries
to a mule.
In his petition the defendant states
by reason of the carelessness and
neglect of defendant to protect the
public from danger at an opening of
Main street at Seventeen street, on
the night of December 6, 1912, and
while driving his team on said Main
street, his wagon and one mule fell
into the ditch and he and his animal
were injured himself in the sum of
$100 and his animal in alike sum.

At a meeting of the Council held
on January 3, 1913, 1 appointed you
as u board of directors ol the pro
posed public library and your ap
pointments were promptly approved
by the Council.
Under the law, the regular terms
of these positions begin on July 1st
of each year. As the constitution
limits the terms of all such officers
to four years and the act of 1902
creating the offices also limits the
several term9 to one, two, three and
four years, your present appoint
ments are to vacancies in the several
terms expiring on that date. Reap
pointments will be made in time for
the full terms and the reorganization
of the board at the time fixed by
The board is named for the present
unexpired terms in order that it may
at once take up the work of erect-in-'
a building and have it ready by
the date for permanent organization,
at which time the city's fiscal year
also begins. I have selected you for
these responsible positions because
of-your fitness for the work to be
done. You will, 1 trust, accept the
offices, meet ac your earliest conven
ience, take the oath required of you
by the constitution, and at once en
ter upon your duties, which I am
sorry to Bay must be rendered with
out compensation. You must elect
one of your number president and
may elect a secretary who is not a
member, but the position cannot be
come a salaried one until funds are
provided by the Council July 1, 1913.
The Council has expressed a willing
ness to permit the erection of the
library building on a portion of
Peace Park. If for any reason this
should be found impossible, I feel
sure another suitable lot will be
promptly provided.
As soon as you have organized and
entered upon your duties, you will
report that fact to me officially in
order that it may be made a matter
of record by the City Council. I
will add that you may count upon
my full co-operation and that of the
Council at all times in tho great
work you arc about to undertake,
Yours very respectfully,
There was some discussion as to
whether the drawing for classes
should be had at this time or at the
beginning of tho regular terms in
July, but it was decided to proceed
at this time and draw lots again if
found necessary.
The oath of office was administer
ed by Deputy Clerk Vigo Barnes and
on motion of Mrs. Radford, Frank
Rives was elected president of the
board by unanimous vote.
Lots were drawn for terms and
resulted as follows: Mrs. Radford
one year, Frank Rives 2 years, Ira

Wallis. Realizing that he was up to
a political fight, Mr. Wallis prevail

List of The Valuable Property
Upon Which The City
Has Liens.
City Clerk H. W. ITibbs yesterday 5
morning at 10 o'clock sold street im
provement bonds to the amount of
$3,435 on the property 'liable for the
new bithuiithic Btreets. Ur this
amount $306 85 is on the government
property which the city will have to
pay and $423.20 is in three lots un
der promise to be paid. This will
leave $2,704.95 of bonds to be issued,
unless the claims are at once paid.
The bonds bear interest at 6 per
cent, from Dec. 20, 1912, and the
liens on the property are to be col
lected as taxes are collected. The
original claims were $8,800 and near
ly three-fourths have been paid. It
is quite probable that others will be
before the bonds are actually issued,
which will be within about a week.
The only bid on the bonds was by
Planters Bank & Trust Co. at par
and accrued interest. The sale will
be confirmed by the Council to-morrow
night. The following property
is affected' by the liens:

The supposition is that some of
the interested parties will bring a
test case. The city authorities are
willingfor this to be done, as further
improvements are contemplated this
tem of the senate. In two states,
Utah and Vermont, four votes each
were cast for president, and Nicholas
Murray Butler for vice president,
the latter having been named by the
Republican national committee to
Rucceed the late James S. Sherman
