the foremost with Kentucky Squirrel whose actions I saw on my last visit to Columbia I fully believe him the most intelligent actor I ever saw If Coffey Bros do not get strings at the Springs Fair

far in advance that in addi ion to the Central Kentucky horses that came last season I have promised three of the best strings in this section Ialso will certainly expect my brother com mercial

greater loss to those interested in raising fine horses Mr Grady has neither spared time nor money in placing before the people the best stock in the horse line and he certainly deserves a large share of the peoples patronage for placing such stock as this within their easy reach and that too during aperto when horses were n such poor demand other horsemen being forced out on on account of their

the heroic Brown At one time he alarmed a butcher with his little pop Tough steak You know W S Taylor had not returned to Frankfort up to laet Saturday night He was at Morgantown in conference with his friends He is muchalarmed at the de cvelopmen s in the assassination plot and fears that he will be ar rested He is said to be on the verge of collapse A few days ago lira Taylor drew a large sum

Democrats should now cease and that we should all meet ns in years gone by around the hearthstone of pure Democracy renew ou vows to advance its interests and forgive and forget the briny accu sations made in the heat of pas sion No man is perfect and the rule in politics is to measure ev ery bodyby our own views whether correct or incorrect Now that the tight botweon DMimeruta has past that the leader so admired and lovod by the bulk of our par ty and despised by others ha been murdered through the medj um of one of the most gigantic 00and hellish conspiracies that WUH ever formed we can not see any good reason why Democrats should not lay aside the troubles of the past and all unite and achieve great victories in the future The principles of our party have not changed The Republican party is as obnoxious now as it was thirtyfive years ago It has not changed its policies It stands for any measure that indicates success at the polls We can not see why we should continue to wrangle with each other because we differed over the individuality of our ticket i tin past conflict Again it fly urgfd that the regular Democrat ic ticket pressed and favored to measures that could not be iudurs edIJy otheir Democrats Well suppose this is true we can only say that the Republican party has done this from its birth and is do ing it now We can not see u happy meetingground between mad Democrat and a smooth Re publican We can not see an intelligent reasons why Democrats should continue to say ioat f foulor Apollus Th li 0 n t should end Uuriiuuiy hui i prevail und the bickerings ut ihe past should be buried As to the party entitled to tIll oflices of the State that is purely u legal question The courts lvil dicide that matter As to the detection and prosecution of the as sassin and conspirators who mur dared Mr Goebel every good cit izen should indorse and assist having them brought to justice It is not a political matter Democrats cool oft and do not be teo rank and severe with those who have not acted as you have in the past Forgive and forget and light the common enemy of Democracy What Democrats think of th Republican attempts to make it appear that Mr Bryan is not us strong a candidate as he was in 1896 may be judged from the opinions herewith given which voices the general Democratic sentiment- in Congress and Washington Senator uorgauMr Bryant will be nominated again because he is the strongest man in the party Senator MoneyUr Bryan will be nominated and he will be elect ed He is the strongest man in the Democratic party Senator TurleyI do not know of anyone in the Democratic party who as a Presidential candidate would receive the support which will be given Mr Bryan His chances of election are much better than in 1890 Senator Tillman There is no comparison so far as the Bryans election this fall are con cerued with the situation that prevailed in 1890 His chances are much greater Senator Bate Bryan is today the strongest man and he will poll a million more votes than any other manI who could be named I believe ho will be elected Senator Kenney= Under all the circum stances Bryan is the strongest man we could nominate I dont think any Democrat will contend otherwise He is strong because ho is near the people and he represents Democratic princiI pies better than any other man Senator elect Blackburn Our Republican friends are busily en gaged in trying to convince us that our chances of winning areI good with anybody except Mr Bryan I think I knowthe mo tive that prompts this disinterest ed advice and I am equally positive that Bryan at the head of our ticket will poll a million more wotes than other man unburied His nomination is accepted by every one and is as much an ac compliehed fact now as it will bo after the 4th of next JulyS The Kenttieky Telephone Asso ciation of Independent telephone 1 j i t v companies of this State was orI ganizod for tho purpose of protect ing encouraging extending unit ing and assisting
