STATE ASYLUMS I
UNDER BIP ARTISAN BOARD
BURNHAM BILL TO DIVORCE IN
STITUTIONS FROM POLITICS
PASSES STATE SENATE
The first step taken in Kentucky to
divorce the State Institutions from pol
itics came when the Senate passed the
Burnam Bill Wednesday providing
for a bipartisan board of four mem
bers to have charge of the three in
sane asylums and Institute for the
Feebleminded Under the operations
of the bill Gov Willson will appoint
a Republican member on the pcsent
State Board of Control of Charitable
Institutions which will make it stand
politically two Democrats and twb Re
publicans The new appointees term
will expire in 1911 which will make
a term of one of the members expire
every year The present members of
the board and the years their terms
will expire are M H Board Demo
crat 1909 Percy Haly Democrat
1910 Col Albert Scott Republican
1912Senator
Senator Burnam the author of the
bill also introduced a measure plac
J1gthe management of the State
prisons under bipartisan control but
was obliged to content himself with
getting one of the measures through
Even Democratic Senators declared
that they welcomed a nonpartisan con
duct of the State eleemosynary Instl
Unions and believed that it was an ex
cellent measure It was pointed out
that the best results could only be
secured in their management where
the officials are absolutely free from
the contaminating influence of party
politics and the employes not made
subsurvent to political bosses The
experiment will be watched with great
Interest by the people of theState
and If successful there is hardly a
question butthat the other State in
stltutlons will be placed under similar
management

I
R E Lee
Itt is not generally known that In
the fastest time ever made between
New Orleans and Natchez and Mem
plug and Cairo by the R R Lee there
were only thirteen seconds difference
in the two runs which were made on
different trips as follows New Or
leans to Natchez in fall of 1870 16
hours 36 minutes 47 seconds Mom
phis to Cairo in spring of 1867 16
hours and 37 minutes Steamboat
men used to call it frog New Orleans
to Natchez 300 miles and from Mem
phis to Cairo 250 miles Measured
miles as furnshed by the United
Sttaes Engineer Corps at Vicksburg
New Orleans to Natchez 257 miles
Memphis to Cairo 230 miles showing
the distance to Natchez was twenty
seven miles more than from Memphis
to Cairo While the distance was
twentyseven miles greater to Natchez
the current was Dot BO strong as from
Memphis to Cairo The latter run
was made on a regular business trip
when the Lee was making twoweek
trips from New Orleans to Louisville
but she never made a stop on the
run On the run to Natches she was
stripped for the race and it was
when she and the Natchez were run
ning against time but not together
The time made by the Lee to Natchez
and Memphis to Qairo Stands today
as the best on record
