ry Strong. John E. Patrick, J. J. C. 
naifh and T. T. Cope, all from Back's 
office, saw the shooting and saw Jett 
Immediately afterward come out at

noon was the testimony of John Pat- 
iHck, who was compelled to leave

account of seeing the shooting. His 
testimony was good and he amde a

mountains in this feud and desires to 
save his uncles, the Hargises, but the 
other side will not accept any over- 
tures unleaa a dean brsaat Is made by 
Jett of the whole affair at Jackson, 
Ky. Nothing but a clean breast of the 
whole affair will tir accepted and there 
Is still a chance that there will be a 
confession on the part of Jett. as he 
thinks and believes that Jim Hargls 
and Judge French haa deaerted him 
in thia trial, as neither are here. Blan- 
ton still continues the sole attorney in 
the case for tbe defense, and Alex Har- 
gls is at present taking some Interest

ators Keane and Dryden. accompanied 
Geo. Cannen, who commanded tbe 
Thirteenth New Jersey volunteers In 
the battle, entered a carriage and 
drove to various points of interest on 
the historical field. 

Gen. Carmen gave the president a 
vivid deacriptlon of the battle, indi- 
cating every point of interest. The 
president alighted at Bumside bridge, 
where some desperate fighting occur 
red; at "Bloody Lane," a scene ol

He Urges the Discontinuance of Post 
Behoela Per Enllated Men. 

Washington, Sept. 18.— MaJ. Gen. 
John C. Bates, con^inandlng the depart 
merit of .Missouri. In his annual report. 
pp<aks of the great value of officers' 
schools, especially to the younger offi- 
ceia whose military education has been 
reelected because of active operations 
In the field. He urges the discontinu- 
ance of post schools for enlisted men 
and makes the suggestion that a trial 
for a few days at a military post Is 
tbe best way to determine If an appli- 
cant for enlistment would make a de- 
slrtble soldier or whether the life will 
suit hfm. He deems it Important that 
the haversack should ho carried bv 
the soldier into a( tion and never sepa- 
rated from him. 

Gen. Bates recommends that the 
propel feeding of oflUcers of the army 
and members of the press and military 
leprcsentatives from foreign countries 
iluring war or in artual service in the 
field when conditions are analagous to 
war, bf made a subject of rfgulations. 
The r.umlcr of discharges of men for 
disability, he says. Is a silent stricture 
un th€ laxity of the physical examina- 
tion to which recruits sre subjected 
and he declares the employim nt of 
civilian physicians for recruiting work 
ill ra.'ically wrong.

friendly light and urging organised la-

Colonial SiTrctary CIianilK'rlain, 
Secretary For India llainilton. 
Chancelor Kitehie Ue.sigiL 


Secretary For the Colonies Quit on Ae* 

count of Balfour's Attitude OE 
tbe Fiscal (Question. 

It Is Understood In PelitlesI CIrelee 

That the Resignation of Some Oth- 
er Members of the British Cab- 
inet Are Imminent. 

I^ndon, Sept. 18.— The resignations 

of Joseph Chamberlain, as secretary of 
the colonies. C. T. Ritchie, as chancel- 
lor of the exchequer, and Lord Geoige 
Hamilton, as secretary fOr India, were 
oflldally aanouneed Thunday eren* 

King Edward has accepted the resig- 
nations of Secntarlos Chamberlain 
and Hamilton and Chanrollor Ritchie. 

Secretary Clianiherlain resigned 
from tbe cabinet on the ground that 
Premier Balfour's attitude on the fio-. 
cal question is not sufficiently advanc- 
ed to enable Mr. Chamberlain to re- 
main a niemlirr of the government 
williout tlie sacrifl'e of his own views. 

Till' rctiri nu nt of Colonial Serre- 
tary Chamberlain was unkonwn and 
unsuspected in London until the official 
announcement was issued late Thurs- 
day night, too late for the evening pa- 
pers. There had been much exchang- 
ing (if politiial visits eariy in tlie day. 
but as I'reniicr Balfour and his broth- 
er, Gerald, left for their home at Whit- 
tingham early in the afternoon It waa 
thought that nothing would happen 
for a day or two. Late In the even- 
ing, however, tbe king's acceptance of 
the resignations of Mr. Chamberlain, 
of Mr. Ritchie and i f Lord Ctcorge 
Hamilton, arrived from Balmoral, en- 
abling the premier's secretary to make 
the official announcement. 

It Is understood that the resignations 
of some other members of the cabinet 
are imminent, and that Ix)r(l Bailotir 
of Burleigh, secretary for Scotlanl. 
has actually resigned, although the 
fact has not yet been formally given 
out. Ix)rd I.ansdowne, foreign secre- 
tary, left London Thursday night for 
Balmoral, whither I'reniier Balfour 
and his brother are also txpected to 
pro( ef'd Immediately. 

In the conservative clubs Thursday 
night, the manner in which the crinls 
was projected was almost as great a 
surprise as in liberal quarters. Ct»rl- 
oslty centers on the attitude of the 
duke of Oevonshire. whose resignation 
has be<'n fully exjiected. Ii was suj)- 
posed by some that he would take the 
present opportunity of retiring from 
politics on the ground of his advanced 

As to the let onstrtictlon of the c-^bl- 
net no great interest Is excited, al- 
though the political pro|diets are a! 
ready busy appointing Austen Cham- 
berlain as chancellor of the execbe- 
quer, the earl of Selborne as secretsry 
for the colonies, because It Is recog- 
nized as impossible that an appeal to 
the country can lie much longer de- 
layed and tbe gen"ral opinion is that 
in the present shattered rondilion of 
the unionist party the liberals wiU be 
returned to power. 


The Manufacturers' Association at To- 
ronto Exoresses Regret. 

Toronto, Sept. 18.— At the meeting

its diligence and bnsinesa-like methods, 
has placed the State in the hi -^t financial 
condition it ever enjoyed before, and has 
paid off before it was dne almost tbe en- 
tire (le^tt. I believe if is safe i.i oay that 
in no similar perind iu our hictury has 
more capital heen itivested in Kentucky 
than has been durioK tbia administration, 
because it hue heen assured of the rigid 
enforcement <if the laws. Kentucky has 
never been in a better condition than 
now for commercial and industrial de- 
velopment. Some idea can be given in 
this line by an examination of tbe rec* 
ords In tbe 'corporation department of 
the Secretary of State'a oflice. It is a cri- 
teiion or a pulse which indicates to a 
large esten> the bnsineaa aotivity in the 
State. Let us make a comparison from 

the record)) and see what they show. Dur- 
ing the four years of the R pablican ad> 
mlnietnition there were organized under 
the laws of the 8tate 860 corporations, 
with an agsrraate capital of S3(),(><>K 730, 
and tbe orgaoisitioo tax paid thereon 
intotbeStatetreasnry wa8S36 668 94 Dur- 
ing the first three yt-Hrn and mx months 
•if this administration there were organ- 
ised 1,792 corporations, with a capital of 
f99,602,7{i.'). and the organization tax on it 
which went into tbe State treasury waa 
#99,608. The correal ds months of this 
term will largely increase this showing. 
The difference will b« more than 3 to 1 
in our favor, and it indicates that the 
basiness iateMRta bare great confidence 
in a Democratie administration. Even 
the firm rf Vf B Belknap & Co., of which 
my opponent is • member, has prospered 
so greatly under this administration that 
they found it nfop^ary to reincorporate j 
laat spring and increased their capital

At the present term of the Lewie Cir- 
cuit Court the famous Seaton case that 
has heen on tbe docket since 1859 was 
tiaally settled. Tbe litigation was over 
the title to some land. The decision is 
in favor of John Seatoo. 

The biennial report of the State Au- 
ditor of Public Accounts, now being 
made up and sent to the printer, makes 
an intereating showing of the handling 
of the public moneys in the Tarions 
counties of tbe State, says a dispatch 
from Frankfort to tbe Coarier-Jonrnal, 
and a comparison (t tbe txpenditnres 
and the receipts make excellent cam- 
paign material from a Democratic stand- 

The receipts and expenditures in coun- 
ties for the first year of the report, that 
ending June 80, 1902, show that but 
thirty-eight of the one hundred and nine- 
teen counties of the State paid for that 
year more money into tbe Kentucky 
Treasury than tbey drew out of it, and 
that eighty-one oonntiee had expendi- 
tures in excess of their receipts. Of these 
thirty-eight revenue-paying connties, 
thirty-three are governed and controlled 
by Democratic otbciala and live are in 
the handa of Bepnblioans. The total net 
rerenoe froib thew five Repnblienn coun- 
ties is $S J,31S 4S, while the total net rev- 
enue from tbe tbirty-tbree Democratic 
eoantiea ia tl,04S,77S.28, showing a(a ex- 
cess in favor of the Democratio ooaatiee 
of $958,454.74. 

Of the eighty^ne panpiar connties 
which that year drew from tbe State 
Treasury in excess of their receip's, 
tbirty-f jar show deficits of $10,000 escb 
or more. Of these thirty-four ooaatiee, 
twenty-seven are controlled and their 
business affairs directed and managed by 
Republicans, and seven are in tbe bands 
of Democratic ofBdals. Tbe table shows 
that the aggregate deficit of tbe twenty- 
aeven Republican! counties is ^7,840 30, 
while til* aggregate deficit of tbe aeven 
counties governed by Democrats and 
Democratic officials ia f92,120.93, making

An Explanation! 

Don't judge our stock f f underwear, as to quantity— by what you see on the 
fir.t ttooT. Moving has begun and tbe confusion it entails— behind tbe scenea, the 
convenience of the shopper will not be disturbed— makes it impossible to give the 
space to tbe muslin undergarments that onr stock ju8ti6ee.1 

One of each atyle, in tbe lower priced garments, yon will find as yon enter 
tha atora, all the more elaborate underwear is up stairs, which doea not netoeaaarily 
imply a climb for yon, aa accommodating sales women are ready to bring the gar- 
menta to yon for inspection. Tbe old expression 'What you don't see, ask for," 
fit* the occasion.

has returned from a six weeks' stay in 
the East. The first three weeks he spent 
with frienda yachting along the Massa- 
chuaetta and Maine coaata. In the courae 
of their ocean outing their acbooner 
yacht was driven 100 miles out to sea, 
the big aail being torn to abreda. They 
were rescued by a tug that towed them 
back into harbor. The latter three 
weeks of hia viait Dr. Pearce put in with

New York. He was much disturbed 
over the news of the destructive storm 
yesterday at Atlantic City, wharo his 
mother reaides."
