NEW YORK TO NAPLES BY ELD Z T TVILLIAMS Editor of the News VjVeiTOofce our lust notes from New York on the 9th iusfc On the 10th at 1 oolock the Spartan Prince our steamer sounded her signal for moving out Two small launch boats laid hold on her one in front and one at her side and tuged her out of port into sea As the great iron steamer began to move out and I realized we were diaaonnected from land and that it would be at least ten days be fore we would see land again I had some very serious thoughts to press upon me Would we in the providence of our Heavenly Fath er be permitted to return to this our native land again But I could not afford to dwell on such thoughts long So as we glided out in the bay the Statue of Liberty attracted our attention which is situated on Bedloes Island one mile out in the bay It is the largest statue in the world It was presented to the United States by the French nation and was made by the French artist Barth roldi The pedestal is about 151 feet and the statue 153 feet mak ing a total of 304 feet in height In a short time our vessel be gan to increase her speed and the cities of New York and Brooklyn began to grow dim in the distance soon we were out of sight of laudWe have 42 cabin passengers 17 females and 25 males and we were glad to find them all congenial companions with very few exceptions Several States are rep resentedas well as some foreign nations The officers of the yes selare mostly English as the ship is owned by an English Company Our vessel is not a large one her capacity is only 5000 tons She is 351 feet long has two large boilers and one tripple compound engine It is made of steel and is strong wellrigged I was really surprised at the security one feels on the sea One can not realize this until he has experienced- it But we had been dreading seasickness ever since we contemplated the voyage Every thing went well until Sunday morningas the passengers began to file out on deck to view the new scenery I couldsee some pale faces now and then and a moving up to the rail and casting their bread upon waters I felt it would be my time next for I felt a fainty weak ness about the stomach So by by breakfast time quite a number were sick and retired to their rooms I did not retire from the scene but threw up a few times took a little breakfast and was a little sick two days but hardly missed a meal McGarvey and Crossfield were not sick at all Duncan was sick only about one day and all congratulate ourselves that we were so favored The weather was real cool Sun day afternoon and there has been rain for several days Mon day and Tuesday we had a light gale all the time and the vessel was very much disturbed but we have had no real storms and all told have had fair sailing and all well andable to eat all we can get On the second Sunday of the voyage wo passed a sail vessel in full rig thefirst one we had ever seen She was making slow time as the wind was headward had been out 135 days On Mondays morning the 19th inst we were called out earlier than usual to seethe first of the group of the Azores Islands Fayal and Pico This was a delightful Change for it was thefirst lund we had beheld for nine days Several towns and villages could be seen on the coast Fayal has a population of 24OQO and is inn good state 6f cultiva tionPico is the larger of the two and is a very considerable mouuoiucalledby the name Qf the Island It is 7013 feet high On its summit is a beautiful well shaped peak 800 feet high and lQo1tBverymuchiIikea large well formed haystack The summit iWftfr severed ithnoxirandtwo- cloudsw th utiful silvep lin ing were nestling over it on each side eavinga4 opening so wf- 3co1fd a rlghtl l raisi- I itself majestically toward the heavensSeveral of the passengers who had their cameras got some splen did views of this mountain and some of its towns and scenery On Tuesday morning about daylight we came in sight of another group of the Azores Islands by the name of St Nlckalls and near the coast we could see a beautiful city stretching along its borders for two miles Ponta Delgada is the city and its population is 18000 to 20000 This group of islands nine in number belong to Portu gue and the inhabitants are mostly Portugues Our vessel anchor ed near the port and most all the passengers went a shore to spend a few hours as the vessel rested from 7a m to 2 p m The na tives look very much like the Ital ians in size and color They are a very industrious frugal people They are expert gardeners The climate is temperate and the av erage range of the murcury is 54 to 88 degrees They raise a varie ty of fruits oranges lemons dates figs etc Corn and wheat and all kinds of garden vegetables do well We saw some very stange sights in that little city Oxen working single to shafts in carts and drays Hero we saw our first packsaddle donkeys such as I suppose we will have more experience with later on The women are homely and wear some strange costumes They have a hood capote that is a kind of combination garment an swering for headdress and skirt for the whole body Our artist Mr Crossfield got a set on some for pictures which we hope to bring home with us Wemet our American Consul andhiswife there who showed us a great deal of courtesy They have some very fine cathedrals parks floral gardens and they have some extensive public buildings They are a very kindheart ed people and are jjappy and contented in their various pursuits of life The Azores group consisting of nine islands was discovered by some Portugue navigators in 1432 to 1452 The islands have their origin from a volcanic eruption This is evident from the fact that craters are clearly visible extinct volcanoes lava and gassy emana tions On the St Nickalls the hills rise up in regular order in well formed peaks and are fertile to the very top and are cultivated in various kinds of fruits and veg etables The population of the entire group is 270000 On the morning of the 24th instant we were awakened at 5 oclock to see the historic Gibral tar but it was so dark at that hour we could only see the outline of the great rock It is a great promontory three miles in length from Naples 3i miles in width 7 miles in circumference and its height is 1439 feet above the level of the sea It is lime stone and marbel It is the most formidable fort in the world It guards the passage from the Medi terranean to the Atlantic and it has been held by the English Gov ernment since 1705 Prior to that date it was held for a long period by Spain It is on the coast of Spain and it is a wonder she ever permitted it to be taken But jn 1705 When the Spanish felt con fident that it was impregnable they kept only 250 men to guard it England seeing her change seized her opportunity and captured it France Spain aud oth er nations have united since to take it and some famous naval battles have been fought there England i1l holds it and keepsit guarded with 5000 soldiers and 1000 pieces of artillery When we sailed out of the At lantic into the Mediterranean we could hardly realize we were on historic waters All day we could see some mountain ranges on the coast tSpainCape Gate was the nearest point we touched which was not over five miles W fc thought of the recent conflict be swoon our nation and this oue ef ancient fame and during the struggle wo little thought of ever beholding the countryof our enemy The narrowest place in the Strait iilesthatIKuwnawaaruw S war vessels cannot pass through in time of war unobserved We had delightful 30 hours sail before we reached the Mediterran oan and it has continued so the three days we have sailed on the waters peaceful bosom We are two days behind time and will arrive at Naples the 27th inst instead of the 15th Today the 26th we are passing in sight of the island of Sardinia We have not been able to learn any thing definitely of area or population It belongs to Italy The next land we sight will be at the end of our first voyage Napleswhich we hope to reach in 24 hours There we will give the finishing touch to this letter now too long March 27th We are now insight of Mt Vesuvius and will land in two hours It is raining and a high gale is blowing We are all glad we are so near our first destination Though the voyage has been rather pleasant yet sev enteen days is a long voyage on sea We had a delightful closing con cert last night and most all the passengers took part in songs pi ano solos recitations speeches c We feel like a great family about to separate and realize as we are about to part that we will never all meet again on this side of eternity We are now in our hotel in Naples safe and in good shape ItsI raining and we will not have a chance to see any of Naples to night We sail from here tomor row afternoon at 5 oclock for Al exandria In almost every neighborhood there is some one whose life has been saved by Chamberlains Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy or who has been cured of chronic diarrhoea by the useI of that medicine Such persons make a point of telling of it Whenever oppor tunity offers hoping that It maybe the means of saving other lives For sale by M Cravens Famine in India The horrors of this famine bid fair to break the record of all the ages for ghastly suffering and death The suf ferers who can lift a shovel are put on relief works on railways and other Im provements at the rate of 250000 per week at present This leaves the mul titudes of those who are too nearly famished for work to starve and die in awful agony The very streets in the vicinity of some relief stations are so filled with the famishing that they are impassable for thoroughfares At this rate of a quarter of a million a week taken upon the government relief works the resources of the Empire will soon be exhausted and adults and children will be left to perish by my riads The outlook is appalling The country has not yet recovered from the famine of 97 and the vast populace are impoverished by their sufferings in the same which millions of them have barely survived so that this stroke that is spreading death and desolation will make rapid work with the masses Many of these adult idolaters may deserve the divine judgments but the innocent children shall we not quick ly rescue them for Christ Who will undertake the support of one of these rescued famine orphans at only 20 a year Better than gold willbe the blessing of the Lord upon that house hold who deny themselves tosupport la famine waif Almost Blind My little four year old girls

Convention It will be held at Kansas City July 4 anda new hall will be ready to take the place of the onedestroy ed by fire Speakingof the contest Mr Mc Quowu said We expect the court to hear argument within ten days after the record is filed The Supreme court adjourns May 15 until about October The court hears no argument in any case as I understand it after May 1 Be tween May 1 and May 15 the time is devoted to handing down opin ions and decisions Last Thursday McKinley signed the Porto Rican tariff bill and it is now a law The first Governor of the island will be Charles H Allen at present Assistant Secre tary of the Navy His salary will be 8000 a year The Republi cans will never reconcile a large number of their own party to this obnoxious law which is nothing more than a burden upon a people who were expecting and had reason to expect better treatment from patriotic Americans 1 y n f- e r 14 Pit PST LOO 7NG ATTEAD If the Supreme Court decides that it has no jurisdiction over the political muddle in this State as we verily Believe it will then We will have a Gubernatorial race this fall Already the question is being agitated as to the logical Democratic candidate the man who can best serve our partys in terest and the interest of our State We trust that good judg ment may guide in our party coun oils that discreet acts may clothe our party press and that we may all work together as in the good old times of long ago It was ap parent to our mind when the fight was on last year by the three can didates for the nomination that it was too bitter that the Demo cratic press of the State was too rank that we were all practically demanding that oUr personal pref erence must be selected or the par ty ruined We all know the re sult and many of us realize the magnitude of our mistakes The News has no apologies to of fer for its expressions for it warm support of Mr Hardin fo the nomination and when he was defeated for its best endeavors assist in the election of Mr Goe belIn the future as in the past we will be found true to party and true to convictions doing all with in our power that is fair and right for the best interest of the coun try and the Democratic party but we wish to state that we do not intend to surrender that freedom and independence that should characterize honest public expressions that relate to the interest of our friends and our party We believe the time is approach ing that an opportunity is near when our party can free itsel- from all of the complications that have produced divisions contentions and unsatisfactory results within its own ranks In our mind this can be done in the se lection of our next candidate for Governor We advocate a conservative policy and that is to se legit a Democrat who has hud no entangling alliance with the ex tremes who has done his duty as- a citizen as a Democrat and who who has not embittered any part of his party Such a nominee would unite our party and give new life and a certain and decisive victory There are many able Democrats from whom to select a candidate but we do not know a man in this State who is better adapted to unite all Democrats dispel th bitterness of the past score a grey victory next November and make a Governor that would make overy true Kentuckian proud than Hon Geo E Stone of Casey Ho is a Democrat whose hands have never been soiled by degraded political work whose Democracy has never been questioned a lawyer of fine ability He is fiftytwo yours of age and would make a Governor that would restore Kentucky to her original proud standing 1V feel that a better man could no be found While he may not b known throughout the State yet to meet him and hear him on th great question would satisfy the most exacting At a meeting of the Ohio Association of Democratic clubs held at Columbus last week a resolu tion was passed reaffirming the Chicago platform denouncing im perialism the Porto Rican tariff trusts and railroad combinations It expressed sympathy for the Boers and demanded solid delegation from Ohio fwr William J Bryan The political situation in this State has been cleared considera bly of late by the decision of the highest Court in our State The case will now go to the Supreme Court and its decision will settle the controversy It is the judg ment of some of the ablest Constitutional lawyers of the entire country that the United States Court has no jurisdiction in this matter A statement comes from Frank fort that the Republicans have re pudiated their proposition for an agreement to advance the pending cases of the Democratic State offices against the usurpers Are fusal is probably duo to a desire to hold on to the offices as long as they can The Democrats will push the vases and there is u pos publicanswill office rvI i r E1rq4 The National House of Representatives has passed a bill favor ing the election of United States Senators by popular vote A large majority favored it The old chairwarmers in the Senate are very apt to kill the bill Judge John R Sampson of Middlesborough has been men tioned as a probable candidate for Judge of the Court of Appeals to succeed Chief Justice Hazelrigg Mr Sampson is an excellent law yer a gentleman of high charac ter and his Adair county friends would be glad to see him on the bench Senatol elect Blackburn sizes up the politican outlook thusly In my Congressional experience of twentyfive years I have never known a Congress in the control of either party that made as many political blunders Ifwe cant wipe out the Republicans in No vember on the blunders made thus far by the fiftysixth Congress we businesss ofrimperialism militarism and trusts exactly to our liking Indeed if they had deliberately started in to make a good job of it for us they could not have done better Having these facts in mind I feel certain that the Republican managers will hasten the close of the session and welcome the day when theycan breath easy again so far as Congress is concerned For this reason I do not believe any ef fort will be made to force the ship subsidy bill through The Republicans are not looking for more trouble unless they have gone

once babies theme selves Perhaps the curriculum of an incubator would have made them think and act differently And why should not a wife have a right to her own earnings What justice is there in that

which are current In Kentucky adverse to the interest and good name of the famous Lobe Star State I believe that could you leave borne amid the mud cold and snow of a Kentucky winter and find yourself simultaneously in this land of waving wheatfields and beautiful spring walber you would be willing to say that many otI the things which you have heard con cerning this country are far from the truthI no one will think that my love for my native State has abated in the least for nothing could be more absurd There ire ties which bind my affections to Kentucky and to Ken tuckians which no country nor people could sever but I believe that in many respects Texas equals and In some surpasses Kentucky Believing this as I do I suppose I might give some rea suns for my belief 1st The winters here are much shorter and less severe than in Kentucky It is true that we have some very sudden and unexpected U Northers which often do some dam age but they rarely ever last more than two or three days During this winter snow has fallen only one time and that time it melted as fast as it fell Some may not think this any Kengbut as African on the subject of weather I think that it is thisecountry has especially for the agricul tural masses is the fact that the ma jorltyofthectjuntrylspractlcauyleveland rocks and grapevines which are the woeful bang of every plowboy in Ken lucky and it presumptions to ray that the soil in this State isiess adapt ed to farming interest than that of the Dark and bloody ground Too of course not all of this state is a flow er gardon as fertile as the valley of the Nile As it is not human for us to see the faults in those things which we adujire Ill say nothing in regard to come things which I know exist in TexasBut for a third and Ithink the great est advantage which Texas enjoys over Kentucky Ill mention her Impregua ble and undefeatable Democracy Nev er in all her history have the Republi cans been able to score a single victory If I am not mistaken in only one in stance aided by the Fops have they elected a Congressman and this Con gressman Mr Hawley will have a close call for his place in the election thIs year Ill tell you something of a Republi can Convention State Convention too which was held at Waco a few days ago After the Chairman had stated the object of convention the names of two of the blackest negroes in the State were placed before the couven tion for the office of permanent Chair man The white friends were very ardent in their efforts to elect their respective negro The vote was very close and us a consequence the Con vention split each faction declairing their man elected and both proceeded to do business under the domination of tbuir negro hero A committee of foirf two whitest and two blacks were appointed to escort one of the heroes to the chair This is the way they did it They picked up the LOO pound black Son of Gun and carry ing him high in the air landed him triumphantly on the platform where he bowed smiled and thanKed them for the great honor which they had bestowed upon tibia I wonder how the Republicans orAdair county would like to take one doreof this pure unadulterated Republicanism It seems to me that it is enough to disgust any lair minded man with his party when the negro becomes dominant in it Tjiyior Wooten and Ed L Harvey loaner Adair county men were eandi cites tar Alderman in in
