Latonia Special
Whlskaway, Harry Payno Whit
noy'a great colt, which a week ago
gave Morvich the only defeat of his
racing career, repeated that triumph
Saturday when he swept past the
wire, winner of tho $50,000 Special
Latonia race for three-yoar-olds be
fore a record-breaking crowd of 60,?
000 persons.
The chestnut son of Whlskbroom
II. defeated tho best field the nation
could send against him In what prob
ably was tho greatset race for three-year-olds
staged In a decade.
Will Perkin's Thibodaux, a rank
outsider In the betting, and a Kentucky-bred
horse, finished second In
a driving finish with Whlskaway,
crossing tho wire a half length be
hind the winner. Morvich was third,
ten lengths bohlnd Whlskaway. Pil
lory, winner of the $50,000 Preakness
stakes, was fourth and Deadlock was
fifth. The mile and a quarter was
run In 2:05 2-5, which Is within one
.flfth of a second of the track record.
There was no question of the rela
tive racing ability of Whlskaway
over Morvich. Morvich was decisive
ly beaten, struggling with a tired,
weary stride at the finish. The' win
ner paid $11.10 for a $2 ticket, Mor
Yich being the favorite in the betting.

In the game with Lexington on the
local lot last Thursday the Essex
proved their superiority over tho
Studebakera, outplaying them in
every department of the game. Mon
holland essayed to pitch for Loxlng
ton, but his offerings proved to tho
liking of our boys, and he was taken
out after the sixth Inning and Parks
substituted. Eggloston, a new twirl
er, started the game for Mt Sterling
and was taken out In tho seventh in
ning when it was seen that ho waa
weakening, and Townsend finished
the game. Tho game, while not an
especially well played one, was in
teresting from start to finish and af
forded much excitement. Muth, Lex
ington's contorflolder, became some
what "wrathy" when Umpire S. D.
Gay called a strike on him and went
into the center of the diamond to
protest the decision. He was prompt
ly ejected from the game and a fine
of $10 was assessed against him. We
believe a few more fines would put
a stop to all the wrangling the spec
tators have been forced to put up
with in this league, and the action
of Umpire Gay is to be heartily com
mended. The box score follows:

A Joke at Paris
The showing made at Paris Sun
day afternoon was nothing less than
a joke. When the boys were not
making errors they were pulling
bonehead plays. The exhibition was
undoubtedly the worst we havo had
this season and with the exception
of the hitting of Ellis and the play
ing of Pergrem the gamo was abso
lutely featureless so far as the local
aggregation was concerned. In tho
very first Inning Paris secured three
runs on one hit, coupled with count
less errors. While it will be seen
from tho official box score below Mt.

All Fees Above $5,000
To Go Back To County
All fees in excess of $5,000 and tho
salary of necessary deputies and as
sistants, collected by sheriffs of Ken
tucky, must be turned Into county
treasuries and go to the payment of
tho cost of county government, tho
court of appeals decided Friday. The
question was discussed In a volum
inous opinion written by Judge Moor
man and concurred in by the whole
court, reversing tho action of tho
Fayetto circuit court, which held
that Paul . Shlpp could not bring
suit against J. Waller Rodes and T.
C. Bradley, former sheriffs of Fay
ette county.
The opinion affects many counties
throughout the stato in which sher
iffs have been receiving more than
$5,000 a year In salary from fees. Of
ficials say It will save the state and
counties many thousands of dollars
annually. The case was the out
growth of agitation for saving money
to the state and counties and is
backed by farmers' organizations
throughout the state.
The court of appeals In Its opinion
held that all excess fees must go in
to the county treasury. It expressly
stated that It was not deciding, in
this case, whether or not the state
could recover from the county Its pro
rata of fees paid the sheriffs in ex
cess of $5,000 and expenses.
Tho county fiscal courts are charg
ed by the court with the enforcement
of the constitutional provisions, in Its
opinion. It says that the sheriffs aro
required to make returns to the fis
cal courts and that through those an
exact accounting for his office can bo
obtained. Through the law requiring
that the fiscal courts approve the ap
pointment of deputies, the salaries
the number of deputies can be regu
lated, the court said.
The court confined Its remarks to
the Bradley case, saying that it also
was decisive of the Rodes case. Tho
suit by Shlpp was to recover excess
fees for 1914 to 1917 from Bradley
and for 1918, 1919 and 1920 from
Rodes. The opinion Friday decides
that Shlpp has the right to sue in
this case and says that recovery can
be had.
It was claimed in the Bradley case
that in 1914 he received from the
state $12,090.74; county, $13,515.04,
and more than $G,0Q0 from private
The above ruling, it is said, will
affect the sheriff's office in Montgom
ery county, not only in regard to the
present Incumbent, but also his pre
decessor, and It Is likely he will be
forced to pay back Into tho county
treasury several thousand dollars.
By tho court's decision many coun
ties in the state will be affected and,
it is said, thousands of dollars will
be saved the commonwealth annually.
