Henry Watterson, Editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, Pays Tribute to the Memory of Sena tor Vance. Louisville Courier-Journal. Our esteemed contemporary, the Daily Observer, of the good city of Chnrlottp. in the renowned Old Tor State, calls our attention the Ob- Krvr lpnvM nntbiiio- linnntipprlf n a case of oversight, not of neglect, on the part of the Conner-Journal. The Courier-Journal was in a remi niscent mood. The past put its touch upon it the tragic past and, little tearfully, let us confess, it was looking backward over the darkling ; passageway ot tne years tnat will never come again, piled up with the beloved and mighty dead. It had taken a flock of its younger readers upon its lap in a caressing, grand motherly way, and was telling them the story, the melancholy story of the grand "old Ship of Zion," their father's flag-ship, "Democracy" (Brother Caldwell, after our Broth er Tompkins has led in prayer, will you please join us in singing that good old song "She has carried many thousands. And will curry many more?") Well, as we were saying, the Courier-Journal was telling how once upofi a time a wicked old witch named Free Silver had stolen aboard in the dead of the night and had drugged the drink of the crew whilst they slept, so that when they awoke and took their morning draught they fell into a state of frenzy; and knowing not what they did they rose in mutiny ana rage against tneir faithful, trained and courageous offi cers, sending them adrift in a leaky boat to the inhospitable shores of a desert island to be heard of never more, and putting in their places a number of new, untried, and unskilled helmsmen. And then how, though all of them had been riding trium phant the safe depths of mid-ocean, the wind came and howled, and the waters hissed and roared, and the waves leaped mountain-high until the ship, having no pilot, floundering hither and thither 'at the mercy of the elements; the poor sailors quite at their wit's end, ran at last into the breakers and upon the rocks. And how the old pirate-ship "Pro tection," which people thought had been sent to the bottom years before, but which somehow was kept afloat and refitted and ordered to sea again, came sailing along that way. And how she was well fixed to do the free-booting of her owners, Messrs. High Tariff, High-Finance & Compa ny! How she was iron-clad below the water-line and steel-plated above it; how she carried tons of stolen money for ballast; how her officers were not naval heroes but super-cargoes carefully selected from a favored class and richly paid; how she was manned not by sailor-men, but by poor worked-people, some of them duped into the service, but most of them impressed, and how she had been turned loose to drive off the high seas the very emblem of Amer ica, to warn the commerce of the world away from our coasts, and to defend the Chinese wall, erected at the people's expense, for the sole benefit of the close-corporation of speculators and millionaires which had chartered her, and was running her for all she was worth, the black flag of piracy flying at her mast head! This wretched hulk, "Protection," for underneath the iron clothing and steel-plating, all was worn out and rotten, came full of conceit, sail ing that way, and spied our poor old "Ship o' Zion" in her most awful plight, water-logged and unprovis ioned, unarmed except for the bows-and-arrows which had been impro vised out of timber not yet sound, through aud through; but still brave and full of fight! These things, the Old Lady at the Corner, as here in Louisville the Courier-Journalis sometimes called was telling the nice little Democratic boys and girls who had gathered about her knee and climbed into her ever-open arms crying, "Gramma, tell us a story," and "Gramma, tell us some more." And she wasalready 'gettin powerful choked and mighty disforgitful," as Uncle Remus would say. It had been particularly hard for her to talk about the dead, about Beck and Wells and Hunt and the "dear old parsee Merchant," Moore, and the rest. Ii she had got to Vance, "superb old Zeb Vance," that would have done her up "fo' sho'." Yet and. after this long prelude, here we reach the matter at issue The Char lotte Observer rises up in and says: meeting "In the enumeration of 'the giants of the old debate, Senator Vance should certainly have been included When Senator Beck died his mantle fell upon Senator Vance, who by nat ural Ability and close study of this subject made himself the master of it and the most formidable speaker and debater in the Senate on the side of tho revenue tariff men." Hark'ee friend and fellow-student dids't uever ask a hundred nobodies to a party, and forget your next-door-neighbor? Well, that was it only that and nothing more; for to omit from the lists of Giants in those days the name of Vance, were to leave out Sidney from the age of Elizabeth, Ilupert from the Cavaliers, who fought Cromwell, and Nathaniel Green, from the Field Marshals that surrounded Washington in the War of the Revolution. - Vance stood all by himself, a char acter, a personality, an intellect, an influence cjuite his own. He, had in deed studied the Question 'and had studied it like the thinker and scholar that uewas. vvnen iiect ieu, ana his mantle, rough when it was new, but old and. ragged and worn fell with him. Vance gently picked it up and laid it sadly away. He did not put it on. It would not have fit him and he did not need it. He wore al ready, a mantle of his own, a mantle made of splendid stuff and richly lined; beneath whose folds he carried ready for use, wit and philosophy, poetry and eloquence and learning to which the great rugged, flreless pulsant mastodian Beck made small iretensions and along with these a leart as big as a meeting house. Gods, with what strokes he smote the Money Devil; with what satire and invective, with what knowledge ine oia Deasc s peculiar curves; with what prophet's instinct and reach of arms; and lord, lord, how his fingers did knock them out with that wondrous display of power and pathos when he once recited them , "The Song of the Shirt?" Who that heard it will ever forget those tones as standing in the Senate, surrounded bv the attorneys of Mammon, in the very teeth of the Gray Wolves, he began slowly, almost solemnly: "With fingers weary and worn, With eyelids heavy and red, A woman sat in unwomanly rags, Plying her needle and thread." And this with its wailing note "For its oh, to be a slave, Along with the barbarous Turk." And this "It is not linen you're wearing out," But human creatures' lives." And this 'Oh God, that bread should be so dear, And flesh and blood so cheap." Forget him? Leave him out? Him, who fought with both Beck and Carlisle, smiting the mailed legions of the Yellow Rich, hip and thigh who, with lorn Lorwin and our own Proctor Knott poured a flood of sunshine as well as wisdom and learn ing into the public life of their time making the genius of American statesmanship a gentler side and leaving to all time a blessed and im mortal Trinity leave him out. And at the precise moment when Democ racy, which he served so valiantly and loved so well, seems to be re- gaming its anagnosity, recovering its prestige and returning to the one modern issue on which it has carried the country; the key to the trend of the times; the cue to the political future; to-wit, that internal taxation must be laid equally on and for all the people and that the import du ties collected at the Custom House, shall be "for revenue only? Forget him? Aot on vour life! Kentucky hails the Old North' State, Kentucky cherishes the memo ry of her great and loved ones,' but among them the name that,like Abou Ben Adhem's "lead all the rest," is not that of Vance, the Senator,-of Vance the paladin, but "jess plain old Zeb Vance."

It looks like a travesty upon justice for General Smith, who killed his wife, to be let off with imprisonment for 30 years, it was a cola Diooaea murder, everyone believes, yet the court ac cepted bis plea of murder m the sec ond degree, because under tne statute it was not believed that the State could make out a case of murder in the first degree. To constitute mur der in the first degree, the State must rove premeditation. Under the old aw and the common law, premedita tion was presumed and it was incum bent upon the defendant to prove the contrary. The law should be changed or cap ital punishment should be abolished.

During the past week we heard two of the most prominent and successful farmers in the county Esq.S. J.Rich ardson and Mr. T. C Lee talking about the great improvemens in farm ing operations in this county. Both these gentleruen eay that improve ment in work in the fields during the last fifteen or twenty years is some thing wonderful. A few years ago a man with a "scooter" brokeup about an acre of land a day. Now one man with a big chilled plow and drawn by two horses plows three acres a day. The man with a scooter had to plow his land twice or it was not at all prepared. With a modern turn plow one plowing and going over with a disc harrow does the work, uo to the hardware stores and the number of labor-saving implements to be seen will convince one that the labor problem is being solved all right. A hundred years ago the best physician would give you a medicine for your heart without stopping to consider what effect it might have on the liver Even to this good day cough and cold medicines' invariably hind the bowels. This is wrong. Bee s Lax ative Cough Syrup with Honer and Tar acts on the bowels drives out the cold clears the head, relieves all ; eoughs, cleansea and strengthens the mucous membranes of the throat, chest, lungs and bronchial tubes. Sold by the Kerner-McNair Drug Company AN EPOCH MAKING SESSION How the Fifty-ninth Congress Has Met the New Is sues Initiated by President Roosevelt, With Extension of Federal Powers as the Dominant Note. . i - "ft - - - By tUWlN PROBABLY nioiv new and ex traordinary questions have been under consideration by the con gress which began its legislative life Dec. 4 last than by any previous session of our national lawmaking body. Xot counting the many acta fa vorably reported to or passed by either branch and left in a stata of suspended animation, their fate to be determined JTy tbe next session, the amount and character of new laws enacted maka the Fifty-ninth congress tne m'lestoat of a new era m the ulstory of Ameri can Institutions. The day or the natioa na come; state and local powers are on the waa or in small favor. Commercial and in dustrial concentration having brought about new opportunities for abuse of privilege, and the muck rakers having waked up the public mind to the vari ous existing evils, President Roosevelt found in this congress workable soil for the growth of federal powers In dealing with those evils. The impress of the president's mind was given to all the more important remedies adopt ed. Neither friend nor foe in the polit ical arena will question the statement that the work of the session bears the ltooseveltian stamp, although the Dem ocrats all along have pointed out that the president was merely camping along the trail blazed by their party platforms. Nevertheless the president's party, being in the majority at both ends of the capitol, baa either taken the credit or boon forced to assume re sponsibility for what was done, even when aided by Democratic votes. Railroad Rate Regulation. The keynote was struck unmistaka bly in the message which congress re ceived at the. opening of the session namely, the insistence on federal fix ing of Interstate railroad rates as well as the -preveutian of rebates or . any kind of special favors, liate bills of various kinds aud descriptions were promptly introduced in both senate and house; but, the house majority be ing under better discipline, the bill was more promptly formulated there, which was approved at the White House. It was fathered 03' Represent ative Hepburn of Iowa as chairman of the committee on interstate commerce. It was so modified in the committee as to come before the house without Dem ocratic opposition, and after a few days of perfunctory discussion it was passed on Feb. 8 by the almost unani mous vote of 34tf to 7, the seven oppo- nents all being Republicans. As passed it gave the interstate commerce .coin mission full power to regulate inter state freight tariffs without express recognition of the rights of appeal in the court. This, however, was only the foundation of the law that was to go to the statute book. In the senate the Hepburn bill was destined to run the gantlet of fierce opposition from a conservative faction of the Republicans led by Aldrich and Foraker -and become the football of personal and party bickerings over period of three months. The main point of the dispute was the question of a broad or narrow court review pro vision, aud ;:t one time, after the presi dent's political and pei-soual enemy, Tillman, had been placed "In charge of the measure, there was a tacit coalition between the president and the minority. Later, however, the president accepted the compromise Allison amendment, upon v.iiii-h his party associates had agreed, vesting jurisdiction in the cir cuit courts to enjoin, set aside, annul or sus;eiid any order of the commis sion on appeal of the carrier concerned. It was it this time that the Democratic leader faith said Sen.lt with charged the president with bad 1 the strcngh of representations h.ive be-. :i li'.i !e through es . Chandler.

Railroad and railway mail employees are exempted from the anti- pass amendment, me presnieni sign ed the bill June 2t. Investigations and Inspections. In both brandies bids were utvQr duced early authorizing investigations Qf the railroad monopolies, and a com bination of these known as the Tijlman. Gillespie-Campbell measure paised the house. Jan. 23 and, though signed by the president, was sharply erlticised by him for not carrying funds and due au thority. The money was appropriated later, and under this authority the In terstate commerce, commission has al ready unearthed a vast amount of graft and crookedness in railroad and oil industries. The pure food bill, which passed the senate Feb. 21, 03 to 4. was also In line with this federalizing tendency. It did not pass the house until June 23, 240 to 17, and then with a number of amendments which endangered its final passage. In Its final shape the pro vision affecting state rights or state and municipal control over the original package v is cut out As to blended whliiaj ihi .ackage most b labeled "blended" or "axed." The senate's provision remained requiring labels ta state ttfe amount of alcohol contained in food packages, but not In bottled drugs. This favors the patent medlcin people. It Is made a misdemeanor Cor any person to manufacture or. sell any food, drag, medicine or liquor which is adulterated or mlsbranded or which . ' - . - . J i. A HOTTER conrains any poisonous or deleterious substances For violation the penalty is iGvW fine and one year's imprison ment. The law goes into effect Jan. 1, 1907. The greatest sensation of the session came from the president's investiga tion of the charges against the Chicago beef packers as presented In Sinclair's novel, "The Jungle." For fear of what the Xeill-Reynolds report might- con tain the senate passed the Beveridge meat inspection amendment to the agri cultural bill May 20 without opposition. Then when influences in the house committee on agriculture were seeking to weaken this bill the fear of greater losses through prolonged agitation brought the friends of the packers to agree to a substitute satisfactory to the president. This placed the cost of inspection on the federal government and did not require the packers to date the labels on their meat packages. Rather than see the entire bill fail, as the senate conferees said at last, they decided to recede on these and some minor points. An appropriation of $3, OOO.OUO was made to cover the inspec tion expense. The national quarantine bill, virtual ly putting state and local health au thorities under federal control for the purpose of lighting contagious diseases, passed the senate April 2 and the house next day with little opposition. In January. MeCall of Massachusetts proposed a $15,000 appropriation for the president's traveling expenses. But near the end of the session a bill ap propriating .f 25,000 for that purpose passed both houses, in the senate by a close party vote. Democrats regarded It as extravagant and unconstitutional. A New Star on the Flag. The statehood muddle, left over from the preceding congress, was one of the most difficult tangles to be unraveled. Under the leadership of Speaker' Can non a Republican insurrection against joint statehood for Arizona and New Mexico was crushed, and the bill was passed Jan. 24, 194 to 150, the insur gents numbering forty-three. On March 9 the senate passed the state hood bill with provision only for the admission of Oklahoma and Indian Territory as one state. The bill finally emerged from conference under a compromise agreement providing for the admission of Oklahoma and Indian Territory as the state of Oklahoma and authorizing Arizona and New Mex ico to hold a plebiscite on joint state-' hood next fall. This was approved by both houses and became a law with the president's signature June 10. Notwithstanding the disagreement over the Immigration bill the house bill making uniform the conditions for naturalization was adopted by the sen ate on June 2. Declaration must be made two years in advance. Anarchists and polygamists are barred. For Lock Canal at Panama. The house was the first to go on rec ord in favor of the lock type for the Panama canal, and the senate followed suit June 21, ild to 31. By a party vote the senate directed that American products and manufactures should be used in the construction of the canal, and in this the house agreed. On Jan. 27 the house adopted the bill authorizing the construction of the Lake Erie and Ohio ship canal, and on June 18 it passed the senate, 41 to 11. After standing pat against the on Blaughts of the tariff revisionists dur ing most of the session tho majority permitted the passage of the bill plac ing denatured alcohol on the free list This is expected to be a great benefit to many Industries requiring power machines or vehicles. Another bill which strengthens the arm of the executive in striking at the predatory trusts by preventing corpo rations fro:.- veiling Immunity because of testimony before a government bu reau becomes a law. Iabor intents, though angered at the failure of the eight hour bill to even come to a vote, were pleased somewhat by the passage of the em ployes' liability act making interstate carriers liable for injuries to employees in the absence of prescribed safety ap pliances and regulations. Other measures of general inter-eat which pasfwl Inotli houses were: Authorizing the return of unidenti tle! Confederate, flag. AlwilisUiug 'h grade of lieutenant f (suer;1. 1. Adding S5.O0Q to each state's quota for agricultural experiment stations. Prohibition of gambling in the terri tories. Provision for marking Confederate graves lu t'ie north.

The Philippine tariff bill, which was one of the pet administration meas ures and which was forced through the Louse by making a concession of 25 per cent ot th-j Dingley rates on sugar, to-bac-?- end rice, by the vote of 253 to 72 as eariy a Jan.

Adams hlli authorizing whip p:sj posts for wife beaters in the Dis trict of Columbia. The senate on Feb. 14 voted 3S to 27 in favor of the ship subsidy bill estab lishing thirteen new contract mall lines to Central American, South African, Australian and Pacific Island ports at the rate of ?5 per ton a year for the foreign trade and $0.50 per ton for the colonial trade. It includes provision for a naval reserve force by piyment of rvta-lner.1 tu-olUcers of subsidized vessels. This measure Is stranded, however, in the unfriendly house com mittee on the merchant marine. A new bill to restrict and regulate immigration, which passed the senate May 23, contained provision for an educational test namely, the ability to understand the English language and raised the head tax from $2 to $5, while creating a commission to investi gate the entire subject. When, how ever, the house passed this bill June 2J the educational test and the head tax were stricken out aud, the senate re fusing to agree, the bill died in confer ence. Throughout the session the senate committee on foreign relations reso lutely resisted the administration's in fluence to report favorably the Santo Dor.iir.go trc.ty. Other ad ministration measures which fared badly in one house or the other were: For federal control of life insurance companies. Specific laws for prevention of elec tion corruption. Uncle Sam's Big Expense Account. Just before the close of the session it became apparent that the total of appropriations to carry on the govern ment for tlie next fiscal year would be somewhere in the neighborhood ol $900,000.1)00. At this writing the exact figures have not been officially report ed. It is customary for each party to insert in the record a week or two after the end of the session a statement of the appropriations and its own ex planation thereof. This total recalls the outcry that was made only fifteen jears ago. when the Fifty-first con gnrss, under Heed's speakership, appro priated a little over $1,000,000,000 in the two year. of its existence. Reply ing to the criticism that it was a""bil lion dollar congress," Reed said, "It is a billion dollar country." Even the Fifty-fifth congress, which covered much of the Spanish war expenses, spent only $1,553,000,000 in its two years; hence, at the pace set by this first session, the Fifty-ninth congress Is certain to outstrip all its predeces sors In the matter of public expendi tures. To the criticism of the minority the dominant party replies that the country has grown in all directions. As a matter of fact, the numerous investi gations and federal inspections provid ed for have added largely to the cost of government. The approximate amounts carried by the different appropriation bills and some extraordinary appropriation?! were as follows: Permanent annual Postoffice Pensions .$HU71.82C . isi .?:.". n: . 102,071.5t . 71.817.10.) . 5,or.3,a Navul Army Fortifications Military ;k."i.:t:v- . l.lM.lla Sundry civil 102.300,000 Legislative, executive and Ju dicial 2-.I.740.00C Distric t of Columbia 10.1S1.2OC Vrgi-nt defk-;. r.cy KOOO.OOC General deficit ncy ll,64.",00fl Agricultural 9.SOO.0OC Indian 10,233,400 Dipiomatie ami consular 3.0S9.591 Public builiiinss Zi.OOO.OOO Extra appropriation for Isth mian canal ll.000.00t Ban Francisco curth.iuake 2.&0i 0u4 Senate's Action on Treaties. After having refused to ratify the Santo Domingo treaty, for which the administration had done Its utmost, the senate agreed just before adjournment that the Moroccan treaty should come to a vote not later than Dec. 12 next before It would die by limitation. The Japanese eopyrl.-ht treaty was ratified Feb. 2ii and the trademark treaty with ltoumauia May 4. The death of Senator Gorman of Ma ryland left the minority without Its leader, aud Senator Blackburn of Ken tucky was chosen as the new leader. Two other reuators, Piatt of Connect icut and Mitchell of Oregon, were claimed by death, the latter" after his conviction lu tlie land fraud case had made his further attendance im possible. Senator Burtou of Kansas was comi-elled to resign after tho su preme court had approved his con viction ou the charge of, using his offi cial iHsition for peeuuiary gain. Rep resentatives who died were Castor of Pennsylvania, Patterson of Pennsylva nia, Marsh of Illinois and Lester of Georgia, the last having been killed by falling through a skylight In a Wash ington apartment house. The new faces in the senate were those of La Follette, from Wisconsin; Gearln, from Oregon; Benson, from Kansas, and Whyte, from Maryland. The thanks of congress were extend ed to General Horace Porter for his ef forts in finding the grave of Admiral John Paul Jones. Will Interest Many.

Great Railroad System to Connect the Three Americas Pet Scheme of Hinton Rowan Helper, North Carolinian. Chariot fe Observer. Our attention is attracted to a somewhat lenghthy editorial article in the New York Sun of Monday, on "Mr. Helper and his Railroad." Tlie 1 Sao says that "Senator Cullom dkl his duty by the nation and the Hon. Uinton Rowan Helper the other day by presenting to tbe Senate that dis tinguished septuagenarian's latest let ter on his projected inter-continental railroad through the three Ameri cas." Mr. Helper is a remarkable man in some respects, and as he is a native of this State it is interesting to follow up his efforts to interest the country in a railroad from one end of America to tho other. This has been his hobby for many years, and of late the scheme lias been broached by others and one of those lately re ported as interested is Andrew Car negie. This fact, or something else, has apparently caused Mr. Helper to become suspicious that his plans are in danger, therefore he writes: "Yet the time is near at hand when it will become my duty to the comprehen sive public ol the whole Western Hemis phere and to my own minute self (and my manifest duty is always my sincere pleas ure) to amass, personally all by valid and absolutely unequivocal and binding affidavits, as my lawyer, not yet selected may determine, in a Circuit Court in the United States, a whole clique of cunning and conniving and contriving and canny and crafty and cladestine conspirators, and other criminals who, after the grov eling manner of unsaintly crooked and chiseling cheats and cowards, have sncakingly leagued themselves together with the evident design of watching their opportunity tD thrust me completely and permanently aside from my project ed and superexcellent inter-continental railway through the three Americas. Shall this merely mercenary and pre sumptuous and facinorous horde of would-be trespassers and freebooters and usurpers, viler in their natures than the degenerate and drunken driver, a savage horse-beater, whose proper nrrest and incarceration and additional punishment 1 brought about in New York nearly thirty years ago, be left free to perpe trate the turpitude which in disdain of reason and in contempt of right they have so insidiously and so infamously plotted against me? It is my candid and and confinent opinion that the exception ally efficient and upright and honorable Congress of the United States, paying little or no heed to its spite-diseased slanderers, will never countenance nor tolerate such a gross and gralt-extend- ing iniquity. Mr. Helper further 6tates that if the courts, as a result of the above trial, shall see fit to award "the rea sonable and adequate sum of $ 3,000 000, under the designation of actual and exemplary damages or other wise, he shall "bo disposed to ac cept it with a fair degree of satisfac tion;" but if the award shall fall lie low the "equitable -sum" he will probably reject it at once, "regard ing it as an obvious defeat and fail ure of justice." Mr. Helper contin ues: In the event this is contem- )lated, though it is scarcely possible or me to anticipate or expect it, I shall lose no time in turning over to the mayor of the city of New York the full value of the verdict, whatever it may be, requesting his honor to distribute the whole amount equally between two or possibly three scien tific institutions of learning, which I will then take the liberty of indicat ing to him as worthy recipients and beneficiaries of the money. To say the least, this is the course I am now thinking of pursuing; yet, bearing in mind the many unseen and unseeable vicissitudes and mutations in human affairs, my somewhat premature and maennite decision snail remain un fixed until after the final decree or judgment of tho courtshall have been pronounced. 1 here is something- pathetic about this an old man and bis nobby. Mr. Helper has written books that have in years agone made his name fam ous for a time, and he has held posi tions under the government, being consul to Buenos Ayres in the 00's. He lias not failed to attract the at tention of prominent men and must therefore have possessed considerable ability. His day o! ulefulness, bow ever, is gone, aud like the men who spent their hvesendeavonng to "per fect perpetual motion" a thing we used to hear much about he now admits defeat and is seeking to pun ish those who in his hour of discon tent be believes are to blame. Some day there may be a railroad built through the three Americas, and when this is done tbe name of Hinton Rowan Helper should in some man ner be coupled with it, for he has given a larger part of his life to ex ploiting the scheme.
