LEXINGTON AN ARMED CAMP Soldiers Parade Streets and Guard All Approaches to the City YESTERDAY'S RIOT COST FIVE LIVES Meanwhile, Negro Slayer Is Confined in Steel ' Cage in Jail Lexington, Ky., Feb. lO.-Dawn to day found Lexington an armed camp. Squads of soldiers who saw service at Chateau Thierry were patrolling the streets and guarding all the approaches to the city to prevent a recurrence of yesterday's bloody mob violence that cost the lives of five persons and caused injury to a score of others. William Lcm ett, negro Slayer of 10-year-old Geneva Hardeman, a school girl, was confined in a steel cage in the Lafayette county courthouse here, 1 either ia the state reformatory at Frankfort or to the prison at fcddyviue. It was an attempt to lynch Lockett yesterday that caused the rioting. Un der miard of several hundred state troops, the negro was brought from th state penitentiary to this city, marehec 4t tia .niirf hmilia fftlinH rrililtV of mUY der, and sentenced to die in thefrlectric chair March 11. Shortly after sentence had been passed, a mob of 100 or more men charged tne entrance to uie rouii lirvuoo hvnt. imon lvnchiiiB the neero. Th troons fired rifles and machine guns into the crowd. The mob wavered and then dispersed, leaving the toll of dead and wounded behind. Additional troops were rushed to the mtia mm f'nmn Znrharv Tavlor dur ing the late afternoon and evening, and martial law was declared by Brigadier uenerai r. u. iuarsnau, upon mo m rival. Reports last night that 1,500 moun taineers were en route to Lexington to lvnch Lockett caused the commanding officer to throw cordons of troops across every road leading into the city and to nlanA nthor detachments at strategic points within the city. So extensive were the plans to prevent a further up rising that at 10 o'clock last night the brigadier general announced that the situation was under control and that no further trouble was expected. Xo attempt will be made by the authorities to remove Lockett from the steel cage until danger of further vio lence has passed, it was announced. "I don't know why I did it," the negro is quoted as having said in the t nurse of a statement prepared for sub mission to the jury which convicted him. Lockett threw himself on the mercy of the court. But one witness, a neighbor of the dead girl's father, was placed on the stand by the state. The witness identified the stone with w hich the girl's head had been crushed. The jurymen returned their verdict uritknnt Ton vinft ihnil flOflfll. Lockett is about 33 years old, and came Here irom rienaerson, rvv., seven years ago. He enlisted in the array and navy and served for 11 months at Camp Taylor. Business was being conducted as usual here to-day, despite the presence of the troops. Death last night of J. M. Rogers, 61, a farmer of Versailles, Woodford coun ty, shot during the rioting, brought the death toll to five. It Wasn't for an Ice Palace.

Important to All Women Readers of This Paper Thousands upon thousands of women have kidney or bladder trouble and never suspect it. Women's complaints often prove to be nothing else but kidney trouble, or the result of kidney or bladder disease. If the kidneys are not in a healthy condition, they may cause the other organs to become diseased. You may mihVr pain in the back, headache and loss of ambition. Poor health makes you nervous, ir ritable and maybe despondent; it makes anyone so. Hut hundreds of women claim that Dr. Kilmer's Hwamp-Root, by restoring health to the kidneys, proved to be just the remedy needed to overcome such conditions. Many send for a sample bottle to nee what Swamp-Root, the great kid ney, liver and bladder medicine, will do for them. By enclosing ten rents to Dr. Kilmer A, Co., Binphamton. X. Y., you may receive sample six bottle by parcel post. You can purchase medium and large-size bottles at all drug stores. Adv.

A continuation of the American league factional fight that might prove second in interest only to the selection to-morrow of a successor to August Herrmann as chair man of the national baseball commis sion, was in prospect here to-day when the Americau aud National leagues went into their annual sessions. The meeting of the older organization was expected to be short, as there was little work to be accomplished aside from adopting the schedule for the coming season. Three other leagues the American association, Three I. and Western also were in session to-day as a part of Chicago's "biggest baseball meeting of all time." So far, only informal talk apparently has been indulged in regarding a new national commission chairman. No one man seemed to stand out as the likely winner. The election probably will be held to-morrow after the joint major league meeting. CANADIANS IN OLYMPIC GAMES Athletes Planning to Participate at Antwerp Next Summer Com mittees at Work.

The only thing I fear is that he will be afraid to accept my challenge, for he has heard of me through other wrestlers.

BILLIONS FEET OF PULP W OOD In the Northlands of Alaska, If They Can Only Be Thrown Open for Public to Use. Seattle, Feb. 10. Alaska wants to throw open her millions of acres of national forests so that the billions of feet of paper wood of the northland can help relieve the pulp and newsprint famine, Governor Thomas Biggs, jr., of Alaska, declared here recently.

Pulp and paper men are anxious to go to Alaska and establish mills as great as those operated in British Co lumbia not far south of the Alaskan boundary line, the governor asserted. Under the present laws the pulp mak ers cannot enter the reservations with any certainty that they will be allowed to stay. Alaska's great forests stretch over approximately :14.(HK) square miles, an area nearly equal in sire to the state of Indiana, according to estimates made by government officials. "Several hundred million feet of good pulp wood, including western yellow pine, hemlock, Sitka spruce, white llr and lodge-pole pine, are on the forest reserves alone. The Tongass reserve, in southeastern Alaska, is especially adapted to the manufacture of pulp and Paper, fores try officials have reported. There is plenty M water power, ocean harbors open "the year around, timber skirting the water and weather similar to that of the Puget sound. The governor intends to ask .Wash ington to restore the reserves to the national domain or to open them to the pulp industry.
