Editor Eagle. st Champ Clark appears to be not only the man of the hour, but the coming man also. He is the possessor of the most conspicuous Presidential boom in It Washington at the moment. fawas precipitated at the now mous harmony fest in Baltimore and has been nourished here around the Capitol ever since. The boom received new force in the Democratic caucus of last week. Whether conscious of his merits as a factor in the Presidential race for 1912 or not, Mr. Clark's actions at that caucus certainly did not prejudice any one or any faction against him. His conduct was conciliatory and soothing. He submitted to be shorn of practically all the powers of Speaker like a lamb. The power to appoint committees was taken from him with his approval. As Speaker he will be no Free from nearly all the Czar. responsibilities that attach to the present Speaker, and to all the Speakers that ever were, Mr. Clark cannot endanger his boom for President by making enemies in the House in the course of procedure. If there is any Czar-isthe Committee on rules will have to stand the responsibility, not the Speaker.

We have been living here for more than three years and .have many nice little friends whom I love. But when I get to thinking back over my Letcher county friends it seems to me that they are much nearer and dearer to me than anyone elsewhere, I noticed in the Eagle that there had been quite a destruction by fire in Whitesburg and am sorry indeed for those who suffered loss. I am glad to learn that the railroad is being built. . I expect to visit up there this spring. Your little friend, Alpha J.

It does not make any difference what she tries first-bre- ad, biscuit, muffins, angel food or gems, the results will be so satisfactory that there will be no use in arguing with her.

This flour is for sale by Lewis Bros, at 95c a bag or$7.7o per bbl. of the town in order to build up or enhance another end. What we want is a big, wide, intelligent and business Whitesburg and whatever will bring that we are in favor of. Now, some of our friends have said that in case the depot is not located at the upper end of town on the property bought of Ira Fields the town will be greatly damaged. On our part we think this is partly ttue. In other words, we believe that it will be better for the progress of the town, better for its growth and better for all concerned for the depot to be lo cated at the upper property. But, again, suppose it should be built on the Robert Blair place or lower down on the Watson Cau-di- ll farm it would enhance the value of property down there and thus make our city grow at that end instead of at the upper end. What is food for the goose is also food for the gander. The Eagle exercises partiality for or against no man. On its part it will be benefitted as much with the station one place as the other, but it wants the L. & E. people to do the very best it can for Whitesburg and all concerned. This old town will perhaps al ways be the county seat of Letcher county; it will likely as not always be the legal business center for all the citizens of the county. It will never be sur rounded by coke ovens or mining camps or be the the congregating place of that class of humanity that gathers around a mining town. Whitesburg will be for years the residence of a clean class of citizens including railroad officials, business managers of mining operations and the headquarters of business men of all sorts. In a few years it will be a new Whitesburg. tho' without the pool room, the billiard table or the saloon. That class of business will surely not be permitted We hear it often reto enter. marked that even big railroad corporations sometimes do things to spile people. Whether this is true or not we can't say. From the time that this railroad proposition was first started last August till now of our people have been as favorable as possible to the railroad. Till the railroad is finished and the trains running.and on afterward it will be more or less worry to our citizens. The railroad authorities know this and we feel certain that those who have the management of things in their hands will, in the location of a station at this, place, put it where it will be for the best interests of our people both in the country and in town, We want to see Whites' burg grow at both ends, on all sides and in the middle. It has pride of every good citizen to see the old town widen out in its borders. Therefore, citizens of Whitesburg and Letcher county, and railroad officials and what not, join hands and hearts, drop every spite, if you have any, and let's bend every energy to 'make Whitesburg the pride of the mountains.
