ion Tuesday
The City Council at the regular
meeting last night .appropriated the
sjm of 25 per month for the use o
the Health and Welfaie League to be
used in dafraying the expense of a
visiting nurse to aid in the care of
charity patients afflicted with disease.
The motion to make the allowance
was made by Councilman W. O. Hin
ton, who presented the case of the
Ke&lth and Welfare League and who
stated at length the purpose of the
League. The matter was discussed
by the members oi- the Council and
the motion carried by a "unanimous
vote after it was made plain that the
purpose of the League was to take
care -of all the cases of tuberculosis
and other diseases, and the organiza
tion was to act in the capacity of the
associated charities.
At the meeting of the Fiscal Court
an appropriation of $450 per year was
made to the League and this together
with private subscription and the
membership fees will bring the sum
now in the hands of the League to
more than $1,000.
Tbe weekly meeting of the League
w-as held yesterady afternoon at the
public library with a large number
of the members present and it was
decided to hold the next meeting in
three weeks.
The committee appointed to investi
gate and make a report regarding the
-sccering of a trained worker to act
under the instruction of the League
advised that it was in communication
with several competent nurses but
was not ready to report and this will
be made at the next regular meeting.
Much enthusiasm was displayed by
the members at the meeting yester
day afternoon and indication point to
a very successful work in he under
taking to better the healthful condi
tion of the city.
"Webb State-Wide Measure
Goes Over By Vote of 61
to 32
FRANKFORT, KY.t March 12. The
Webb State wide prohibition bill
-passed the Lower House at noon to
dav bv a vote of 1 to 32.
Following the announcement of the
vote "by which the Webb State-wide
temperance bill passed the House,
precisely at noon, tho House gallery,
filled with prohibitionists, went mad
with joy, and men tossed their hats
to the ceiling, while women clapped
their hands with glee.
While joy on the part of the "drys"
was at its height, the discovery was
made that the original bill, defective
in many particulars, had been passed
instead of the substitute. The vote by
which, the original bill was passed, be
fore the error was discovered, was re
considered and placed upon the table,
clinching the House action on the

No Commonwealth cases are on the
docket for this week.
A decision of Judge Stout as Spe
cial Judge of the- McCreary Circuit
Court, Tuesday afternoon, finally dis
posed of the contested election case
between Whitley City and Pine Knot,
for the county seat of the new county
of McCreary. After hearing the argu
ments by the attorneys representing
each of the towns Judge Stout de
cided there was no law providing for
the contest of an election for the
county sat of a county.
At an election held recently in Mc
Creary to decide which of the two
towns should be the county seat,
Whitley City won by a majority of
189 , votes, and Pine Knot contested
the election on the grounds that
money and undu influence was used
in procuring votes.
As the election won by Whitley
City was decisive, and unless the de
cision of Judge Stout is reversed by
the Court of Appeals, that town will
remain the county seat of McCreary.

FRANKFORT, Ky., March 1?.
Tributes to the late William Goebel,
of Covingtoin, Ky., slain Governor,
were delivered by Governor.
Jas. B. McCreary, Congressman A. O.
Stanley and former Governor J. C. W.
Beckham. The occasion'; was the un
veiling of the statue of Governor Goe
bel, Wednesday
The work of art is a bronze
statue made from the death mask tak
en by Sculptor Barnhorn, of Cincin
nati. It cost $20,000, appropriated by
the Legislature of 1902.
Miss Margaret McChord, of Wash
ington, D. C, and Louisville, daugh
ter of former State Senator Charles C.
McChord, now member of the Inter
state Commerce Commission, un
veiled the statue, pronounced to be an
almost perfect likeness. Standing by
the young woman when she lifted
the white veil from this tribute of
Kentucky to her distinguished son
were Justus Goebel, brother of the
late Governor, family of Justus Goe
bel, and members of every department
of the State.
Governor McCreary, former Gov
ernor Beckham, who was Lieutenant
Governor under Mr. Goebel and suc
ceeded him; Chief-Justice Hobson, of
the Court of Appeals, and the Judges
of this Court; the members of the
Legislature and hundreds of citizens
of the State, in whose memory the
name and deeds of Mr. Goebel will
last as long as they live, were pres
ent. Mr. McChord, who could not be
present, in a telegram to Justus Goe
hoi snid that onlv the most urgent
business of national welfare kept him
From Alabama, G. V. Greene wired
Mr. Gcebel as follows:
"The unveiling of the statue of your
lamented brother, my friend, states
man and patriot, brings inexpressible
sadness to my heart. His image, his
deeds of valor and sacrifice to princi
ple are indelibly impressed upon my
memory and will be fondly cherished
until I follow him to the Great Be
yond." While all that words can say and
oratory express from human lips and
said of Mr. Goebel yet the
thought that mind can invent were
greatest tribute to his memory was
the passage of the Finn railroad bill
by the Legislature almost after the
ceremonies. This bill contains a ma
ority of the provisions advocated by
ATr fJnRbfil when he fathered the Mc
Chord railroad commission bill, which
became a law shortly after his assass
ination. The passage of the bill, leg
islators say, demonstrates that the
spirit of Mr. Goebel lives, and that
monuments erected to him are an in
spiration to the living as well as a
tribute to his memory.
The ceremonies at the statue were
very brief. The procession was
formed in the Capitol, and officers of
the State and members of the Legis
lature marched in twos to the statue.
A band preceded the procession, play
in p- a. funeral march. Senator G. G.
Speer, of this city, was Grand Mar
shal c the procession. The Division
Marshals were chosen from the mem- j
bers of the Program Committee, who
are members of the Legislature. !
Sonntnr Walker Hall, of Covington,
Chairman of the committee, was the
Master of Ceremonies. Rev. T. B.
Taliaferro, former Chaplain ' of the
Kentucky Reformatory, made the
opening prayer when the members as
sembled in the House chamber to
hear the addresses. The chamber
was packed and jammed.

or. Popviinm and Lieutenant-Governor

Congressman Stanley did not come in
to the chamber until Governor Mc

Much of the speech of Governor Mc

his efforts to free the oppressed from
the burdens of special privilege. The
