my senior, emerged from a wood near

dressed in a crossbar suit, a straw hat
with a brown ribbon and tan shoes. I

important to my story. His clothes
were rather the worse for wear, but
there was a refined look about him.

"How would you like to make a

When I returned to the city late In

General O. O. Howard of Bell coun
ty, Ivy., who has undertaken to put a
Stop to feuds in Kentucky and has
been riding on horseback through the
feud counties, accompanied by Fred
erick C. Chamberlain of Boston, ridi
cules the Idea of being shot by mis
take while on his tour of investiga
tion, says a special dispatch from Lex
ington to the New York Herald. He
says the feudist seldom makes a mis
take; that when he sights down the
barrel cf his rifle he usually knows
who the gun is pointed at
"There is no danger of any moun
tain man pointing a gun at "Cncle Oll-
of the feud problem, eliminating all
else, is education. Of course, this Is
impossible in many sections of the
state except with time and the ad
vancement of civilization."
General Howard and Mr. Chamber
lain started on their tour a few days
ago, leaving the railroad at Echutaw,
Lee county. It was in the Grant-Lee
Memorial hall of Lincoln Memorial
university, near Cumberland Gap,
Tenn., that General Howard was seen
while attending a meeting of the board
of trustees of that institution.
General Howard Is a firm friend of
the mountain people. He made possi
ble the Lincoln Memorial university,
and his wisdom has been proved by
the score of young men and women
who have been educated and have
gone out from the university into a
life of usefulness. ,
"The advancement, of civilization
and education," said General Howard,
"will, stamp out feuds, but such ad
vancement is, of course, slow to find
its way into the log cabins of the
mountains, and I am going to see if I
cannot help these people out of their
trouble by acting as an advance agent
to education.
"A feud is a sort of vigilance com
mittee such as is known to many sec
tions in the United States. The offi
cers of the law are Inactive and cow
ardly. If a man commits some crime
that deserves punishment they fail,
either from cowardice or laziness, to
bring the offender to justice, and the
persons who felt that they had been In
jured, finding that they have no safe
guard in tho law, resort to assassina
tion, or, taking the law Into their own
hands, they are seized with a desire
to mete out justice without the aid of
the law. j
"Yet there is nothing either north,
west, east or south that Is the parallel
of the Kentucky feuds. Wherever I ;
go I advocate to the people the neces
sity of good roads. The absence of not
only railroads, but of turnpikes, or
even good country roads, is one of the
chief barriers to the advancement of
education in these feud localities.
"While it is true that the recent
feud assassinations in Breathitt county
where 1 learned thirty-seven men
had been slain from ambush within
the last five years-have been most
furious in the town of Jackson, which
is entered by two railroads and situ
ated on a river navigable by small
boats, it is a fact nevertheless that
this feud originated in the most re
mote part of the county, long before
the mountains were traversed by a
railroad and when Jackson was
smaller than Ilandman or Hazard.
Tmvoiiiv throueh these sections of
the country, one is forced to go on
horseback, and fur myself I have al
wavs rode n mule, because he is the
more sure footed beast. By the build
ing of railroads and lnguwajs u
mvinte nre hvoncrht closer together and
the public school system Is made pos
sible." General Howard said he noticed that
the attitude of the people had changed
decidedly within the hi.-t few years,
and he never expected to witness in
Kentucky another feud like the
Freneh-Kvorsolo, the Strong-Amy, the
Hill-Evans or the Baker-Howard.
"The turnpikes, the railroads and
the country Fchool, three agents of
the advance of civilization," said the
general, "are now making' tiieir ap
pearance in all parts of the state. It
is true, the Baker-Howard feud occu
pied the center of the stage in public
notice only three years ago, but since
then ('lav county has been crossed by
several lines of telephone and the
schools have been greatly lmprovcd.-
Speculatnrs In oil and minerals have
planted their machinery on the hill
sides. "The Breathitt county feud is the
climax, readied after years of political
tlrife, and is unlike in character any
of the other feuds in the history of
Kentucky. The spirit of hatred caused
by the civil war between the Strongs
and the A.mya resulted in a long and
bitter feud between their families and
was handed down to the second gen
eration, but I do not believe the pros-
nerous town of Jackson
will know of
a feud save In history
after tin pros-
ent bitter strife ceases.
"I find In my travels unit, me peopu;

neighbors. They want Justice, and if
the courts will punish crime feuds wil'
