C McNeils Hotel in Washington street on Friday March 23 It has leaked out that on Saturday morning while Dr Mea dor was on Broadway near Bowling Green he met two or three men and one of them led him to believe that he he had known him in Kentucky The doctor went with them to a place near Park Row and the Bowery and in a sptrit of friendship cashed a check for 400 for the one who claimed to have known him in Kentucky The check turned out to be worthless Dr Meador was in New York preparatory to taking a trip to Europe but after the loss of hit money and upon the advice of a physician he re turned to his home in Kentucky The matter was reported to the police of the Churchstreet station but so far they have been unable to find any clew to the swindlers Famine in India The extent and severity of the pres cnt famine in British India is some tiling appalling and seems to increase with every fresh report There are over CO000CCO o f people dwelling within this famine nidi us and us thsy are largely peasant farmers they are utterly destitute There were but a little over 00000000 in the famine of 1807 and in spite of the extensive re lief schemes of the British Government and individual charities nearly 15000000 died The present famine being nearly four times as extensive acd the crop failure much more com- plete nothing short of miraculous for eign charity can prevent the certain death of multiplied millions in the villages of the Central Provinces nine I 1 lout of every ten are in a starving con appearanceI I for food till death ends their suffering Hundreds of the children gathered up by the missionaries are even now swo len and covered with scurvy sores and are almost ruined in their stomachs and bowels by eating grass roots bark and even dirt The sum of S20 will feed clothe and educate one of these faminewalfs for a whole year and about one dollar a month will keep one man rom starving T H NELSON Imperalists Ten Commandments lThou shalt have no other

conven tion held on the 19th of the month possesses peculiar Interest for Democrats in all parts of the country be cause it may be taken to express the views of Col Bryan and to be in some degree indicative of what he will hope to see incorporated in the national declaration of principles Of course the Chicago platform was reaflirmed as it will be at Kansas Cityln whole and in part in letter and in spirit but especial emphasis was laid upon those planks dealing with government by injunction the in tax pensions and the free coinage of silver Two growing forces in the creation of public sentiment vcre recognized in resolutions approving direct legisla tion and the municipal ownership of municipal franchises What may be termed the new issues of the year received vigorous and ade quate attention The Republican cur rency law is denounced as chaining the nation to the gold standard and as surrendering to the banks for their own profit the governmental function of issuing money Imperilism with its attendant evilsthe Philippine war he Puerto Rico tariff and militarism at home and abroad are roundly denounced The pronouncement on the Philippine question will be looked upon everywhere as expressive of Mr Bryans view and may well be quoted in full Believing that a nation cannot long endure half republic and half empire we oppose wars of conquest and colonial possessions The Filipinos can not be citizens without endangering our civilization they cannot be sub jects without endangering our form of government and as we are not willing to surrender our civilization or to convert a republic into an empire we fa vor au immediate declaration of the nations purpose to give to the Filipinos first a stable form of government second independence and third protection from outside interdependence as it has for nearly a century given protection to the republics of Central and South America rile trusts the money trust the industrial trust and the international luudgrabblug trustarc denounced and the McKinley administration con demned for uehber urorcing the pres ant law against them nor recommend ing a more efficient one The platform though not long touches all the current issues with con fidence and sincerity It points out the insidious menace of Republicanism m to the principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence and it closes with an expression of sympathy Y for the Boers in their struggle for liberty It may fairly be held a ccm pendiumof Democratic d9ctrIneUp to date t- as t v J w THE MONTGOMERY FAMILY Information Wanted by a Member Who Lives in Indiana OVENSVILLE IND Apr 1 1900 Editor of the News Through Mr Thomas Richard son who is now in this county and who takes your paper in which I have read the article writ ten by Eld Z T Williams and published March 21st I see n reference to Charley George and G W Montgomery who are stu dents at Lexington Ky whom I believe to be relatives of mino and to the hundreds o f other Mont gomerys in Gibson and other coun ties in Southern Indiana Our geneology runs something like this In 1718 Hugh Montgomery an Irishman emigrated to Amerid en and settled in RoanokA coun ty Virginia He reared seven n sons and three daughters of the daughters we know but little The seven sons James John Sam uel Hugh Benjamin Jesse and Thomas all took part in the revo lutionary war and all lived to return to their homes Hugh Montgomery the father of these seven sons is represented Nr as having been educated refined and wealthy but at the close of that desperate seven years strugle II this property was nearly all lost and the family scattered some going out to Pennsylvania some to by Montgomery Alabama and some emigrated to Kentucky and setbl tled near Mt Sterling in 17m3te and some claim that Hugh who settled in Virginia in 1718 removed to Mt Sterling in 1785 al dB died not farfrom Lexington Ky t few years later Thomas MQntadl gomery the youngest of these soy en sons was among those who sot tied near Mt Sterling in 17U3 He emigrated to Gibson county Indiana in 1807 Samuel Mont gomery Sr a brother followed him in 1811 and Samuel Jr a sou of one of the seven sons who A remained in Kentucky followed his uncles to Indiana in 1814 All of these men had large familes largely consisting of boys hence many Montgomery in this coun tryThe family here has shared largely in the honors and profits of political affairs They are mostly agriculturist some preach ers a good many doctors very few lawyers and a host ofsoldiers I am of the third generation here and have always

WEDNESDAY APR 1L Roaring Bill Sweeney says he had no knowledge of it The Democrats of Pennsylvania will send a solid Bryan delegation to Kansas City Indiana seems to bo the safest spot for conspirators of any State in the nation In our judgment there is not a Democrat in Adair county who would support Dewey for the nomination In a very short time a State peinocratic convention will be called to nominate a candidate for Governor Another man who was in the executive building when Governor Goebel was assassinated has fled to Indiana The Republicans of Tennessee will probably send two delegations k to Philadelphia growing out of the EvausBrownlow trouble Dewoys State is Vermont and the national Comuutteemau from that State says a Bryan delega tion will go to Kansas City American soldiers are constantly being attacked by insurgents- in the Philippines but none of the engagements have been seri GusIt is said the Republicans are now offering to aid the grand jury in the conspiracy case It is reported o that former State Treasurer Walter Day offers to tell what he knows Who will haul down our flag McKinley Who will de ny the guarantee and operation of our constitution to every State and territory The people next November Senator Harrel seems to be working up his aspiriation and pulling down his reputation His letter published in Louisville pa pers will not make him Governor of Kentucky The great convention hall in Kansas City in which the next President would have been named was burned last week but it will be rebuilt and the candidate nom inated ill it will be elected Last Saturday Col D G Col son visited the scene of the trage dy in the Capital Hotel pointing out to his attorneys the exact po sition of himself and Ethelbert Scott when the firing commenced The Senate passed the Porto Rican tariff bill last week The flag and taxation are going hand In hand but the constitution guaranteeing equal rights to all 1 and exclusive privileges to none is a dead letter to Porto Rico fToufaey now says that he car ried messages to Taylor from men o wanted ttNdll Mr Goebel Baylor publishes u statement declaring hill innocence sayingthat if be fehould be indicted ho would not atfctapb tb evade arrest S r r- J y r r Admiral Dovey wants to beI Preediyt of th United l hut he will find that ho IH u hud nnmier in a short while Brjuit will bo th next President Senator Culbertsou of Texas made a hit with his maiden speech in tho Senate which was against the Porto Rico bill and in favor of the Democratic conten tion that the constitution follows the flag The prediction is heard on all sides that Mr Culbertson will become one of the Democratic leaders of the Senate The incessant rains in Texas have caused great destruction to life and property At Austin the dam in the Colorado river gave way and millions of gallons of wa ter rushed down the valley sweep ing away houses and destroying many lives San Antonio reports the worst storm for thirtyfive years practically suspending rail way traffic Six Republican Senators had the courage of their convictions and voted against the Porto Rico bill which passed the Senate by a majority of 9 If the same per memjbershiptheir convictions the bill would be defeated but present indica ti ins point to the swallowing of their convictions by a sufficient number of Republicans to put the unjust measure through Hon W R Cress of Monticel lo desires to represent the De mocracy of the Eleventh district in our national convention to be held in Kansas City July 4th Mr Cress is an active Democrat a lawyer of bright future and if the Democrats of this district elect him as a delegate they will thereby show an appreciation for his zeal and untiring party work of the past The district will be entitled to two delegates In a speech against the Porto Ri co tariff bill Representative Lane of Iowa a Republican sounded a warning to his party when he said This is a question of sentiment and the people are aroused It appeals to their judgment their sense of justice and equity and right and I now warn you that whenever the standard of justice and right of any political party materially differs from tho stand ard of the people on any great question the people rise up in their might and that party goes down in defeat So mote it be Porto Rico is territory of the United States her people were glad to be attached to this great country and the first legislation of our Congress affecting the wel fare of Porto Rico was to apply 15 per cent of the duties imposed by the Dingley tariff on her ex ports Who can justify such an act Who says it is not gross discrimination between the peo ple of our territory and the sugar trust Should Congress pass such a law against Kentucky who would indorse it Yet the same principle is involved Last Saturday while seated on a log engaged in fishing five miles out of Frankfort Judge Hazelrigg Chief Justice of the Court of Ap peals granted a writ of error in the Gubernatorial contest and an appeal to the United States Court The case will go up at once The Democrats will move to dismiss and if the motion is sustained that ends the contest There is hardly a doubt as to Beckhams claim It is thought the final de cision will be rendered by the first of next month Last Friday Mr Beckhams tie tle to the Governorship of Ken tucky was confirmed by the Court of Appeals Two of the Re publican and four Democratic Judges agreed in the opinion that the decision of the Legislature is final that Courts have no power togo behind the authenticated rec ords of the Legislature The Re publican attorneys will now make an effort to get the case in tha Supreme Court and failing they will probably knock at the door of English Parlaiment For los ing out the Republicans are amaz ingly great e There is not a fairmindedman any where irrespective of his political views who would say that it is right or fair for a gove11 metit tbtaxa pbrtibu of her people with if j kI out representation It wits sash treatment that caused our for fathers to revolt against tlnir mother country and through a long siege of war gained their in dependence Since 1776 our guv ernment has grown to be a great power and through all her troubles has maintained lir orignal purity in form of government un til the fight with Spain j then temptation was too great and to day this proud Republic is not only controlling her own affairs but dishing out governmental ders to her colonies taxing them without their consort just what England did for the American colonies that led to the revolution We can not see how any party or any part of a party can defend such a policy If it is right to tax the imports from Porto Rico then why let our other territories sell their goods free I This falla cy and this law bears the brand of the sugar trust There is not a doubt about it If the people want to bend the knee and pay tribute to the greed of trusts they should continue the Republican party in power If they believe the peoples rights should have preference to trusts then retire the Republicans and do it this fall It is a plain case that the Republican party is in league with trusts that the Democracy is their enemy The CourierJournal published last Friday the story of the plot which led to the murder of Gover nor Goebel as told by Wharton Golden W H Culton and H E Youtsey all of whom hove made confessions to the officials in charge of the prosecution The story was concisely told Many of the details were untold for the reason they are qlosely guarded and their premature publication might defeat the ends of justice Youtsey made his confession on the day of his arrest although it was at the time denied that he had dope eo Qn last Thursday Youtseys attorneys and friends propesed that he should turn States evidence but the attorneys of tho prosecution declined to make such an agreement believ ing that they had evidence enough without Youtseys The man who is believed by the prosecution to have fired the shot is Jim Howard of Clay county Youtsey furnish ed the rifle that was used and pro cured cartridges with steel bullets just before the assassination Tho assassin demanded part of his pain advance and after enterin the room from which the shot was fired refused to do the deed unless he was paid 1600 in advance One of the conspirators left the room and returned in a few minutes with the money The riot in the Legislature about which Wharton Golden testified and during which Goebel and others were to have been killed was to have been started if the assassin failed to get Goebel before he entered the Statehouse ORADYVILLE Mr W M Wilmore is in Louis ville this week buying goods for i Wilmore Moss The health of this communit is goodN Tutt

have been so sorely bereft have the sympathy of this office To give our readers an idea of howI fast news flies we recite the following Last Wednesday the county court made an order for two bridges to be built in Adair county Judge Butler and County Attorney Garnett were appointed to letthe contracts Saturday night the committee received communications from contractors living in different cities of the country wanting the job v Take Warning Persons owing ine taxes for15980 must arrange to pay at once orI will proceed to levy J t7i Htmif Sheriff iq 6ayu The Turning Point For years It has been admitted by the conservative people of this county that several bridges were badly needed across the streams that flow through Adair and the bridge question has been agitated by the people who live near Green river and Milltown every time there was a tide in the streams and no encouragement has been given until last year when the question was brought before our magistrates and at that time they pledged no substantial aid but showed much Interest in the question Last week however the Fiscal Court was in session and the people of Green river and Milltown were here and when they leftthey could see in their imaginations powerful iron spans across the dangerous watercourses that have so long been fearful barriers In their ways The Fiscal Court decided to bridge Green river at a point to be deter mined on the 19th and also to bridge Russells creek at Milltown It was a hard question to determine as it meant an increase in the levy of 321 cents on the 8100 worth of property and our county guardians are not extravagant On the first yote it failed but it was not dropped After the vote had been taken and the question lost some good speeches were made that aroused the whole court and Squire Eubank who had voted against the question an nounced that he could pay his tax and if the people were so anxious for the bridges he was willing to vote for the them He moved that the court reconsider which carried The question was again put and carried 4 to 3 In order to acquaint the people of the county and in justice to each magis trate we give the vote Ayes Wil liams Wolford Gowen and Eubank JWecounty in the main will indorse the action of the court To our mind they have done the right thing at the right time The people of this county are amply able to bridge the streams and the people along Green river and Rus sell Creek have shorn a liberal spirit in this matter They have several hundred dollars pledged as contribu tion to the bridge fund We consider this act of our magistrates as the turning point in this county We believe that one improve ment leads to another that when these bridges shall have been completed others that are needed will be built that the bridges will stimulate the making of betterroads and thatwithin- a few years Adair county will not be in the rear of progress along these lines Prof A H Ballard has bought from Mr T A Baker his lease on the M uBakeryears hence Prof Ballard has a four year lease beginning next September Prof Ballard enjoys the reputattion of being one of the best educators in Southern Kentucky He is a man eminently

article is not in tended to reflect upon the ability and efforts of Mr Baker who now has the most flourishing school that has been conducted in Columbia for a number- of years but to speak the plain
