80c WHEAT .
The Price Not Tempting But
There's Is Loss In
. 7
Large Percentage of Crops
Threshed and Ready For
Although great rows of wagons
cannot be seen waiting for unload
ing at the elevators as last year, yet
farmers are beginning to bring in
their new crops 'of wheat, even
though 80 cent per bushel is the
ruling price.
Farmers have different ideas as to
when is the best time to sell. Some
persist, when there is. reasonable
probability of. wheat advancing only
10 cents, to hold for the advance.
Others say that. the safest plan is to
sell when the price is established.
They say that the loss by shrinkage
and insurance will eat up the 10
cent advance.
The threshing season this year has
been unusually favorable and a large
percentage of the crop is now ready
for the market. If the three weeks
of rainy weather that nearly always
comes just after the harvest had pre
vailed, this year, then the farmers
would have cause for grumbling at
80 cents for their crops, for the lose
by sprouting and otherwise would
amount, at the most conservative es
timate, to 10 cents on the bushel; -
Experienced and successful farm
ers say that the opening price, as a
rule, is generally the best. Of course
there are exceptional years. And
they should not forget that in 1913
the United States raised the largest
crop and the best crop in the history
of the country, and Christian coun
ty's crop does not amount to a drop
in the bucket.

Two Negroes are Principals in
Tragedy in San Domingo
Layne, the Slayer, Claims That
Weapon Was Discharged
Wednesday afternoon in "Sah Do
mingo" George Murray received his
death wound from a ball from Saint
Layne's pistol. Both parties' were
colored and the cause of the'shoot
ing is said to date back something
like a year ago, when the negroes
had a falli. g out.
. Murray lived about six hours af
ter being shot and before his death
made a statement that may go hard
for Layne when he is tried at the
September circuit court. Layne, af
ter his arrest by Deputy Sheriffs
Chilton and Johnson and Lieut. Haw
kins, said that the shooting was ac
cidental, and this will doubtless be
his plea when arraigned for trial.
He admits that each of them had
a pistol and says they were going to
compare them, and when he drew
his pistol across the counter in the
store it hung on a nail and went off.
The dead negro's testimony was that
when he looked up Layne had his
gun pointed at him. The bullet took
effect in Murray'3 right side and
stopped in his left side. Murray died
10 o'clock "Wednesday "night.
To Make Good An Order On
Illinois Central Railroad Co.
The suit against the city by the
Meacham Contracting Co., set aside
on a technicality at the last court,
has been started anew. The sum
mon in the first case was not served
on the Mayor, who was absent from
the state. The piainmi sues to en
torce the payment or m izb and in
terest one year on its contract with
the city for the construction of the
Tenth street sewer. An assessment
against the I, C. railroad for a part
of the cost was tendered in payment,
wmcn tne rauroau company nas re
fused to pay. The claim of the
plaintiff is that it had no contract
with the railroad, but looks to the
city to force the railroad company to
provide drainage facilities through
streets covered by its grant, under
penalty of having same revoked.
Former Superintendent Egan, of the
I. C. Railroad Co., last year agreed
to pay $1,200 of the assessment, but
this agreement was repudiated by
his successor, Supt. Baldwin, and
the litigation follows.

Again Asks For The Democrat
ic Nomination For State
But He Has Lived The Biggest
Part of His Life In Hop
kins County. .
Senator R. M. Salmon is formally
announced in this issue as' a candi
date for re-election to the State Sen
ate from the district composed of
Hopkins and Christian counties.
The Lawrenceburg News in a very
complimentary article says of him:
"Rom" Salmon did as much, if
not more, to make Ollie James' suc
cess for United States Senator than
any man in Kentucky. It was this
silver-haired Kentucky gentleman
who told big brained Ollie to "draw
on him when he needed aid." A
higher minded or more honorable
gentleman or better democrat does
not live in the confines of old Ken
tucky than "Rom" Salmon, as he is
affectionately called. A friend to
the poor and needy always, he is on
the side of the People and the Tax
payers at every crack of the gun
There never was any doubt in the
state senate upon any proposition as
to how he stood upon any question
when the interests of the people were
at stake. If that district wants to
nominate a man that will reflect hon
oring1 credit upon itand the demo
cratic party, it will nominate him
by thousands in the primary. A vote
for "Rom" Salmon is a vote to re
ward a faithful and true friend of
Senator Ollie James."
Senator Salmon was born in this
county but has spent most of his life
in Hopkins county, in the mining
business at Ilsley. He has been a
Democratic committeeman for many
years and has always been an active
party leader. He never sought of
fice until 1909 when he was elected
Senator by an enormous majority,
carrying Hopkins by 1100 and Chris
tian by about 500. He is well known
in both counties and has a large per
sonal following in this city.

Association Met Thursday Night
And Prepared For New
Results of Year's Work Re
viewed and Aroused En
thusiasm. There is to be no let-up in the
work of the Hopkiosville Business
Men's Association, but rather new
energy and vim is to be put into all
departments of work and the new
year is to be made greater than ever.
At the meeting of the officers of
the Association, held Thursday night,
the work of the year was reviewed
and what was accomplished is an in
spiration to still greater service in
the future. An active business
men's association is both the regula
tor and balance-wheel for the suc
cessful operation of all departments
of a city's activities.
In order to insure the successful
carrying out of future plans the As
sociation is going to raise a fund to
draw from when spot cash is needed.
A number of gentlemen are to get
to work and at once raise $5,000 for
this purpose, several having already
expressed a willingness to plank down
their share as starter for securing
the amount decided upon.
President R. E. Cooper was em

the interests of the city.
Secretary R. L. Castleberry, of
the H. B. M. Association, tendered
hi3 resignation at the meeting Thurs
day night, owing to his failing
health. Mr. Castleberry has put
much energy and intelligent applica
tion to duty in the administration of
his office and his place will not; be
easily filled. He will probably leave
the city and seek rest in some more
congenial climate.
Higher Court Renders Another
Important Decision.
The Court of Appeals has rendered
another important decision on the
unit law in a case from Somerset.
When a local option election is
eought in an entire county the peti
tion should be signed by a number
of voters equal to 25 per cent, of
the votes cast in each of the pre
cincts at til'" last preceding general
election. 1 Sons who Bign a peti
tion for a )t 1 option election may
withdraw l iir name3 from the
petition befl it is acted on by the
County Couri. Where, on petition
for the calling of a local option elec
tion the case is submitted, the hear
ing of evidence on a disputed ques
tion of fact renders ineffective the
o dcr or. submission and does not;
deprive a petitioner of the right to
withdraw his name before it is final
ly acted on.
