The Presbyterian tlenera! Assembly today
anantmously adopted the following resolu

from the standing commutes on home mis

In the active encouragement and practice

LEXINGTON, Ky., May 29. Orders were
Issued at midnight to send more troops to
Colonel Roger Williams, who was called
to Lexington today, received a cypher mes
sage tonight from Major Embry Allen,
who Is In command In his absence at Jack
son, stating the necessity for more men.
Colonel Williams Immediately conferred
with Governor Beckham, who approved the
call. Colonel Williams then called Capuln
MUard of the Panville company by tele
phone and ordered him to Immediately as
semble his men and bring them to Lexing
ton. The company will leave here for Jack
son at 7:40 a. m., arriving there at 11
Colonel Williams later sent an order to
Louisville for the company there to be held
In readiness for orders to move In case
they are needed. The message from Major
Allen did not state what prompted the
requisition for more men. Colonel Williams
It Is true that the men there have been
heavily taxed in the rigid patrol duty re
quired and more men will relieve this.
However, I will not surmise as to what de
velopment actuated Major Allen.
The Panville company will Increase the
battalion to about 175 men. Many people
In Lexington construe the call for more
troops as confirmation of the rumors that
a force of men who propose to rescue Cur
tis Jett and Tom White was being recruited
In the Interior of Breathitt county.

All mountain passes Into the little city

Rumor Is persistent that the mountain
eers sre gathering and will make an at
tempt to release Jett and White, and the
vigilance of the authorities has been
doubled. The Gatling and Hotchkiss guns
are now In places believed to be the most
advantageous to the troops and for the

It Is that several of the mountaineers
have been riding night and day spreading
the news of the capture of the two men and
urging tho rescue of their comrades. The
military authorities have decided to keep

FRANKFORT, Ky., May 29. Colonel
Roger P. Williams, In charge ot the mili

afternoon for a conference with the gov
ernor. Governor Beckham says today:
I have Just been In communication over
the telephone with Colonel Williams, who
is in Lexington. The situation has been
exaggerated and our state is being done an
injustice. No reinforcement of troops has
been requested or Is needed.

Koclan Sayn that He Had No Inten
tion of Keeping; Valuable
NEW YORK, May 29. In the course of
an Interview, Jaroslav Koclan, who has
Just arrived here, with the Stradlvarlus
violin which he took with him when he
sailed from New York about a month ago,
I feel very sorry for it all, because the
whole affair put me in a bad light and It
has put Mr. Cloptou to unnecessary trouble,
notwithstanding he has done me the great
favor to loan me the beautiful violin. 1 am
not guilty of anything, but I had friends
who told me I could do what I liked with
It was not my Intention to run away with
It, and when I arrived at Cuxhaven and
found a cable message about it I sent a
message to my uncle, who told me to re
turn the violin at once.
Koclan said It had been planned for him
to go on a concert tour at this time through
Germany and Russia, but that this tour
was abandoned In order that he might re
turn to this country in person and with
his own hands return the violin to Its

pected that there would be any separa
tion of policy between the two. Therefore
the liberals must fight the proposals with
the utmost vigor.
He contended that the margin that Great
Britain might gain by preferential trade
with her colonies was comparatively small
and not worth the risk of dislocating the
three-fourths of her trade with the rest ot
Thus far the discussion reveals no ex
treme enthusiasm on the part of the union
ists for Mr. Chamberlain's scheme, al
though the ventilation of the subject la
eagerly welcomed. The unionist Spectator
points out the coincidence that whilst Mr.
Chamberlain Is offering old-age pensions
as the compensation to the workingman
for the loss he may sustain through the
preferential tariff, the vast pension list of
the United States wss largely created in
order to get an excuse for a high pro
tective tariff. In the Spectator's opinion. If
the colonial secretary la foolish enough to
force -his proposals to an issue he will
shatter his party as completely as Glad
stone did the liberal party with home rule.
That such a rupture of the conservative
party exists Is admitted among the best
Informed members of the party. At least
four cabinet ministers are said to be
strongly opposed to the seheme, whilst
Winston Churchill and Lord Hugh Cecil,
who are credited with the Intention of or
ganising an opposition to Mr. Chamber
lain's plans, claim to be able to count al
ready thirty conservative members of the
House of Commons In their following.
At Brooks' club, the headquarters of the
liberal unionist party, It was stated that

Mr. Chamberlain was determined to stand
or fall by his scheme, and that if he failed
to obtain the country's support for it he
would retire from publio life.
Tno- conservative politicians and news
papers in many cases view the proposals
with considerable doubt The Standard, In
its leading article, confesses that to forego
any considerable part of the British trade
with foreign countries would be too seri
ous a drawback to face, for greater access
to the colonial markets and the other con
servative organs express grave doubts
whether the colonies will ever be able to
supply aU of Great Britain's' foodstuff re
It Is also pointed out that the case of
the United States does not offer a fair
comparison, because the United States en
Joys International free trade, while it !
Impossible ever to hope for free trade be
tween ureat Britain and Its colonies.
There Is no doubt that Mr. Chamberlain
has achieved one aim In securing publio
forgetfulness of the government's muddling
over the education bill, the army reform
and other local matters, but he has also
opened such floodgates of discussion that
all parties will be anxious to appeal to
the country at the earliest possible moment
In order to arrive at a definite issue.
