Gov Willson knows no fatigue. After speaking for two hours at the Tabernacle tins afternoon, at the urgent solicitation of many citizens, ho went to the Court house wind there ad.LroBsed a crowd of- people, who wore un able to got into the Taberuacle. He paid a worthy compliment to the Christian County Law and Order League and promised it Mb uiiBtiuted -support in its worlr. Tonight he received line after line of visitors at. the hotel. He says tluiL today's demonstration surpassed any that he has known in his long career as a speaker. "It shows that Kentucky has thoroughly awakened and the citizens' demand that law and order must prevail," he declared. It is estimated by many who called on the Governor tonight that fully one-half the white population that assembled in the Tabernacle represented the Democratic element of the dark tobacco growers in the district. Hopkinsville has never in its history witnessed the wild en thusiasm of today. Hopkinsville, Ky., Oct. 5. (Special to Louisville Herald) The death knell of the night rider in Kentucky has been sounded. If one doubts this assertion he has only to pay a visit to the hoart of the durk tobacco dis trict, where the activity of the midnight marauder has been most pernicious. In the very nature of things he must succumb to tho inevitable seutimont for ' luw and order,' which now, like a prairie Are is sweeping Western Kentucky from one end to the other. ( Western Stotlon Oamo. T.ulay Trigg, OaldwpU, Lyon, Hopkins and West jTeniitt.6ee came to Christian cojjinty to pay tribute to Gov. Augustus E. Wil son, art the chAmpion of law and order, and the uncompromising defender of their lives and home. It was an affecting tribute, too. Old men, tottering beneath tho weight of years, grasped his baud and thanked him with the fervor that only Kontuckians cau be stow for Ins uurelentiug war up on Uw ueapcvlerB of their liberty and property. Women and chil dren stiiiggled in friendly rival ry to press upon him their ex pressions of good will, and a poI- id phalanx of sturdy tobacco growers almost overwhelmed dim with the warmth and sincerity of their greetiug. Had Elm a Hero. The Governor did nor come here with the idea that he Would be made an object of horo wor ship. Ho came upon the invi tatiou of the Christian county Law and Order League to dis cuss the issues of the Presiden tial campaigu, and, as he termed it, to render an account of his stewardship during the ten months that lie has beeu at the head of the State administration. For flearly two hours after the crowd had exhausted itself in making the streets of Hopkins ville and its splendid hotel re sound with Kb cheers, the Gov ernor spoke in Union Tabernacle. The auditorium could not begin to hold the crowd which sought admittance, although' it was con structed to seat 5,000 people. From a homely preface talk on Kentucky afTairR, the Govern or hurst in a terrific arraiugmonfc of night riders and their sympa thizers. He declared that those who were responsible for law lessness in the tobacco district were not Kentuckians and did uot possess thofstincts and sen timents whiclyuave always char acterized the pons of tho Blue grass State. "I know the night rider lead ers," ho shouted, "and they know it, and somo of them are, mighty uneasy.

Tremendous applause greeted the Governor's declaration that if he were n grower, he would bo a member of a tobacco associa tion as lone as it sold the pro ducts of all the members on equal terms and played no fav orites, as long ti6 it was true to the people it represented and tie long as it respected the lnw, "The minute it cease! to do this thing 1 would put dynamite under the whole concern," he deolaroJ.

' CONSUMPTION CONTROLLABLE. Responsibility of Society is em phasized by Eminent Physician. REFUTES THE THEORY OF IN- FECTION FROM INHERITANCE. Washington, Oct. 4. "If every unit of our society is willing to do that which they can do, I feel confident that the day is not far distant when we will have wiped tho dread disease, tnborcu losis, off tho faco of the earth." This was the message of hope given today by Dr. Lawrence Flick, of Philadelphia, one of the eminent medical men of the country, at the National Museum where the tuberculosis exposi tion is being held in connection with the International Congress on Tuberculosis which adjourned yesterday. Dr. Flick emphasised the part society should play in the great work of stamping out tuberculo sis, saying it had a responsibility and a duty to perform that should uot go unfilled. Calling atten tion to the fact that what is wanted is the spread of knowl edge, he said that the rest is easyk.:-" - Workers Eaiy Victims. "Tuberculosis is peculiarly a disease of tho wage earner," said Dr. Flick, "and this is so for the very ground reason that one of the strongest predisposing causes of the disease is overwork, It' is an exceedingly fatal and pievalent disease amoug wage earners," Dr. Flick pointed out that the reason why the wage earner is so likely to contract tuberculosis is because in many instances ho is overworked. He toils in uu Bauitary workshops and -oftentimes he is underfed, which causes his powers of resistance to be less able to throw off an implantation of the tubercle ba cilli. If the wage earner gets the implantation, Dr. Flick said, it is almost certain to result fat ally. Ho refuted tho theory of infection from inheritance, say ing that unless the tuberculosis micro-organism is admitted into our bodies, it is not possible for one to become infected. The engine room at the air shaft in charge of Dick Grifiiu is one of tho cleanest and neatest on the entire works, is has a con crete iloor and signs are put up requesting that no trash be spill ep on the iloor. Dick is to be congratulated on the excellent condition of this place. A Pittsburg News item says : A machine that cau dig and load a tou of coal a minuto lias beeu invented by II. A.
