Constantinople Editor of the News We purchased our tickets on Friday evening for Smyrna and we found only one vessel going to Constantinople via Smyrna for several days and that one belong ed to Russia and it was very much crowded We had to pay very high for our tickets there being competitionWe writing and visiting bazaars purchasing a few things At 3 oclock McGarvey Duncan Crossfieldand myself took our last swim in the old Med iterranean and at 4 oclock left lying shore We took a little boat our dragoman Moses had procured and just as we were rowing out a boy with a big bottle of ice lemo nade was rattling his cups in an other boat Mr Crossfield mo tioned him to come and the crowd was treated We then bade fare well to old Palestine and felt real ly satisfied with our 26 days stay in the Lands of the Bible having seen most of the important pluses We entered our ship a little be fore 5 oclockand got our baggage in our staterooms in good shape After a wash anda little rest dinner was announced and we were ready for a hearty meal We expected good fare as we had to pay high but found the same old ship cooking but being hungry we all partook hartily and rested well that night with two exceptions Crossfield and McGarvey were more talkative in their sleep the former talking in the early part of the night the latter in tho wee small hours We were all occupy ing one large state room with four bunks arranged so as to give us all lower berths which are much better than the upper ones The next day was Sunday and the sea was rough as usual Most of us felt a little weak at the stomachand by lunch which is at 6 oclockwe were ready to eat Duncan and myself had lost our appetites and what we ate disa greed with us and Duncan was compelled to cast his bread upon the waters There was much heaving and groaning all day There are about 500 steerage passengers on board mostly Rus sian pilgrims who have been to Jerusalem to attend the Easter services and are returning home They belong to the Greek Church and are a tough looking people They wear very long hair and from allappearances it is uukept and well inhabited We saw a woman catching them off the head ofone of her companions and bending her thumb nails together we sup posed she was killing the vermin with considerable skill It makes one feel crawly all over to see such and we would not be surprised if some of the firstclass apartments are not inhabited ere long These por people have never been taught that cleanliness is next to godli nessOur first lauding was at Tripoli on the Syrian coast the ship re maining at anchor from about 9 a m to 4 p m Tripoli is a city of 2500 inhabitants and judging from the boxes of oranges being put on board it must be a consid erable orange country The next morning at 6 oclock we were again anchored at Mersina a city of Si licia and upon learning that our ship would remain there until 4 to 5oclock p m we determined to visit Tarsus the birthplace of Saul We engaged a small boat as soon as possible and went ashore thinking perhaps we couldcatch a train going out that morning but there is no train from Mersina to Tarsus on Monday until tho after noon j so six of us engaged two carriages at 120 each round trip three hours each way giving one hour to see the city The road has been in time a good pike but is not well kept now but we had a fine trip through a fertile valley all the way On this trip we saw our first harvesters cutting barley with reaphooke It look ed like pinhook business to one not use to it By the way we learn tfrom a gentlemslniiTar = d l sus that reapers from America are being introduced here and will be extensively used in a few years and threshing machines also We saw some old time threshing floors ready for use They do not bind the grain but bunch it and carry it to a place in the same field for threshingWe at Tarsus about 11 oclock and did not expect to meet any one who could speak English but as soon as we alighted from our carriages we met a gentleman who spoke English very well He was in front ofa large building which was a college as we soon learned and very soon there ap peared a typical American lady who had already recognized us and at once invited us in She is a sister of our own Judge Brewer of the Supreme Court and here in an American College teaching This school was inaugurated by Mr Shepherd of Chicago and is being supported by 100000 en dowment mostly contributed by him There are about 130 stu dents in attendance We were en tertained in old fashion American style and felt that we had really been well paid for our trip It does a fellow so much good after hearing all sorts of language and none intelligible to meet up with such a rare treat There are twelve teachers in the school and they all speak English very well We saw the birthplace of Saul and a few ancient relics of the city There are 20 to 25000 in habitants there now We got back to our boat in good time and moved out at 5 oclock Speaking of the disadvantages of conversing with the people of different tongues we had an amusing experience on this ship We wanted some eggs for breakfast and the steward and waiters are Russians and can not understand English and after exhausting our vocabulary in all the languages we knewMcGarvey happily caught on to a new idea that worked like a charm He gave a few lines in icnology cackling like a lien and the stewardlaughing heartily said iee iee which JIB Russian for eggs We all laughed at the thoughtfulness of our companion and rejoiced over his success We sailed on the Oth of May into the Aegean Sea passing the is land of Rhodes about 4 oclock m About 1 oclock we passed Patmos the island of Johns ban ishment It was 12 or 15 miles away but in plain view and with glasses we could see a village on the shore It is a lonely looking place with barren mountains But when we realize it was glorifi ed with the Son of God and the place of his last appearance on earth and the place of the last revelation that God gave to man through his Son it becomes a place of interest to Bible students There is a small city now on the island and it has a population of over 4000 We also passed an other town on the inland of Khios the town having the same name It is a very beautiful city of 5000 to 10000 population On the morning of the 10th at 4 oclock we arrived at Smyrna and at 6 oclock we went a shore in a small boat and took breakfast at the Bristol Hotel and arranged for a trip to Ephesus by rail It is on ly a two hours run over a fine valley road We started at 8a m and arrived at 10 The most important ruins are about one mile from the present station so we walked over and saw the ruins left of the old Templa of Diana of the Ephesians The churchof St John is in ruins but it is clear ly outlined and shows that it was a magnificent structure when John the Apostle preached there Paul created a great deal excitement here once as related in the 10th chapter of Acts He preached the Gospel of Christ here with such power that the foundation of this old heathen Temple began to shake from center to circumfer ence when Demetrius said verso 27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at naught but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised and her magnificence should be destroyed whom all Asia and tho world worshippeth Her ancient maguificenqe has long 1r- r since departed and there is little left to identify her splendor This temple was one of the seven wonders of the world was noted for its three great buildings the temple of Diana theater the largest of its kind among the Greeks and stadium or circus which is 655 feet long and 200 feet wide Prof Wood in 1892 made some splendid discoveries of the ancient ruins at this place He excavated the ancient theater eventhe panorama and the cages where the wild beast were kept The amphitheater is a natural semicircle in the hill withstone seats arranged in regular order from bottom to top and would seat from 12000 to 15000 people The background in the panorama is beautifully arranged with mar ble columns and on these a splen did gallery with marble stand and fine carvings Here the apostle Paql was about to go when his friends pursuaded him not to do so as there was danger of being kill ed Acts 19 8081 And when Paul would have entered into the peopl6 the disciples suffered him notand certain of the chief of Asia which were his friends sent unto him desiring that he not en ter into the theater After seeing the ruins we return ed to Smyrna by rail and spent next day seeing Smyrna one of the best cities we have seen in all Syria It has a population of over 300000 including the surburbon towns and there are about 260000 of this number Greeks It has one of the finest harbors in all this country and there is a great amount of business done here They make a great deal ofwine and ship from here and fruits of all kinds ohvies figs apricots c The people here look and dress more like white people than any place we have been There is re ally some good looking women here and intelligent ones too We have a Missionary here Mr Johnson who has a church here and a small congregation One of his members has a son in the Bible College at Lexington preparing for the min istry After spending the day here very pleasantly andseeing Poly Carps tomb and the church of the Seven Georges we tookship at 5 oclock for Constantinople and arrived there on Sunday the 18th inst Will write my next from here to Naples We are all well and still cheerful Wotld

Governor Glasgow Times Judge Jos H Lewis candidacy for governor has been promptly followed by the rallying of his legion of friends all over the State to his standard It goes without saying that Barren county will stand by her favorite son just as she has always stood by him But there are other and stronger reasons why Judge Lewis candidacy should commend itself to all thoughtful par tymenFor than a generation Judge Lewis has been prominent in Kentucky history and politics As soldier on the battlefield as Representative in Congress as judge upon the benchfrom circuit to supreme courthis record is known of all men and is without spot flaw or blemish Honest and open as the day unyielding as adament in his advocacy of right he offered his life on bloody battlefields a willing sacrifice for principle closing his military career as commander of the immortal Orphan Brigade As circuit judge and later an honored justice of the supreme court of the State his work has been not one whit less brilliant able earnest and faithful and true to the people Discussing this chapter of his illustrious career the last issue of the Elizabethtown News well says Judge Lewis is one of the soundest and ablest jurists that has graced the court of appeals bench in many years His opinions are models of thought and of law and arc based upon thorough research and the broadest principles of justice and equity He has frequently been styled the Gladstone- of Kentucky It was through his election to the court of appeals bench that Hardin county finally won her famous suit against the L iN railroad after having been once otherwise decided by Judge Lindsay It is such men as this the Democracy of Kentucky has in times past delighted to honor it is such a man as this whose services are most needed nowKentucky Democracy is at present divided into warring camps For four years these hostile factions have been turning their guns upon each other Democrats flying at Democratic throats instead of making war upon the common enemy Twice has Democracy been defeated by Democratic strife once victory has cost the party its leader and brought it to the very verge of destruction These differences are still unhealedstill gaping and yawning wounds still harbingers of danger to come of disasters yet manacing the road to victory Never in all its history has the Democratic party in Kentucky stood in so deadly peril as right now If Judge Lewis is not the leader for this supreme occa sion then there can be no leader if all classes and conditions of Democrats can not stand together can not be drawn together through the magic of a name that is the synonym of honesty of manhood of purity of purpose of brilliant ability of long and faith ful service in the cause of the great common people of all that is good politically and of spartan virtue and simplicity personallythen God help Democracy for of a truth there are no grounds of reconcilement here Its divisions are past appeasing and beyond the healers art It is for these reasons that Judge Lewis friends have urged him to enter the race for governor It 1s for these that they believe he will be nominated and will lead his party to triumphant brillant victory It Saved His Log P A Danfortb of Lagrange Ga suffered for six months with a fright ful running sore on his leg but writes that Bucklens Arnica Salve wholly cured It in five

Bryan is temperance incarnate He loves literature rather than art the trout stream rather than the theatre the farm rather than the city the small church rather than the ca thedral He loves men more than books and books more than money It is true that Mr Bryan is provln cial He is careless of his clothes but careful of his morals He can not speak French or lead a cotillion but he can give you in the purest and sweetest English the story of the struggle of man for liberty in every age and is familiar with the solid litera ture of the world i Ihave heard him talk of his enemies without a word of bitterness I have heard him defend Mr McKinley from unjust attacks He loathes and avoids personalities or abuse in conversation This is one of the noblest and most attractive traits in his personal life He is decent and tolerant in his speech fair just evertempered There is something about Mr Bryan that makes all who associate with him more earnest more ready to make sac rifices more indifferent to mere abuse and more intensely and peculiarly American There are no secrets in his life To be with him is like walking on the seashore in the sunlight At 40J he has still the unsullied ideals the unbroken faith of a boy And any man may be his comrade nay his very brother He has the outwardness of a man who is big of mine as well as of body There is the ruggedness of truth in all his ways He lives simply and some times frugally not because he cares for money or because he does not know that there are others and more extravagant ways of living but because hrs I tastes are simple The very simplicity of his life and speech is a corollary of his native dignity His quaint points are the quaintnesses of his country There was a time when Mr Bryan felt that some day the crimes of law less wealth and rapacious corporate power against the toilers of the coun try would bring on a physical struggle and in those days Mr Bryan was a gladiator with the fierce unforgiving spirit of a gladiator But a new ten derness cf spirit has come into his life He seems to be filled with the idea that love is the only uplifting force in the world and that love is as necessary and as natural in politics and statesman ship as in private affairs I have met almost every great man of my own time in the principal coun tries of the world but I have never met a greater man than Mr Bryan As a rule one finds the idealist a man of frail body physically incapable of makinga continuous struggle But here is an incorruptible idealist with the physical strength of an ox Nowhere in the world is to be found a- more perfect combination of mind spirit aid body The three are evenly balanced in the Democratic leader mental energy controlled by intelli gence imagination inspired by philan thropy virility disciplined by virtue Why So Many Men FaH 1I0ne trouble with many young men who start out in business is they try to do too many things at once says Hetty Green The Richest Woman in AmeriCa In the June Ladies Home Journal The result is that they dont know as much as they ought to about any one thing and they naturally fall The trouble with young men who work on salaries is that theyre always afraid of doing more than they are paid for They dont enter into their work with the right spirit To get on and be appreciated a young man must do more than he is paid to do When he does something that his employer has not thoughtof he shows that he is valua ble im are always willing to pay good salaries to people who will think of things for him The man who only carries out the thoughts and ideas of Another is nothing more than a mere tool Men who can be relied upon are always in demand The scarcest thing in the world today is a thoroughly reliable manu Maridn douhyt hd Ve1 SiSQi- 4til1

its work in ono day and every body is well pleased No special favors were dished out and no questions concerning the present state of affairs in this StaIr were introduced but the eon ventiontnerely did tll- tvtlrk e for which the delegates- were chosen and selecte- ddtgates to attend the Na tional Convention instruct ed them to vote for W J Bryan and gave an expression as to Democratic sentiment on the great issues soon to b embodied i n the Nations Democratic platform In leaving the issues involved in our State affairs for the State Convention to settle at Lex ington evidently was good and timely for the Democrats of the State had not instruct ed their delegates in regard to the various questions that now confront us The four distinguished gentlemen who candidates for the Democratic nomination for Governor were there and made short tnd appropiate speeches Tlie 1cipleadopted days News Hon C W Metealfe Pineville made a speech in the Democratic Convention held lit Louisville lust

requires two thirds of the entire vote to nomi nate but all matters now stand Mr Bryan has 065 votes instructed f slim which is 45more than neces sary thus it is evident that B is the most popular

referred to the Convention which niPetH at Lexington on the 19thof July to nominate a candi date for Govern r We approve the call of this coil vention We hereby reaffirm the platform adoptpdiftgo iu 1890 and the delegates to the Kansas City convHntion are hereby instructed to cast the twen tysix votes of Kentucky for the reaffirmation of said platform iu whole and in part for William Jennings Bryan for President and- o vote as a unit upon all questions arising in said convention REPUPMCAN FOREIGN POLICY DE NOUNCED We denounce the foreign policy of the present National Adminis tration as antiAmerican and anti Republican It seeks to establish a system of imperial government territorykithrtn history und subversive of the prin ciples of Republican government It imposes n tariff upon the people of Porto Rico whilst giving free trade to the British land of Cuba thatnt Spanishkan army of 60000 men in the Phil ippine Islands and after nearly two years of warfare has made but little if any material progress to ward the establishment of peace or order It has increased the stand ing army from 25000 to 62000 men and proposes by legislation now pending in Congress approved by the present Republican Admin istration to still further increase the army to more than 100000 insiedt republic rfsts in the citizen soldiery and its chiefest danger is to be found in a large standing army subject at all times to the arbitrary con trol of the President theS present Republican Congress fastening the single gold standard upon the people and conferring upon the na tional bankers absolute and arbi trary power to fix the volume of our money and substitute inter estbearing national bank paper in place of noninterestbearing greenbacks SYMPATHY FOR THE nouns We hereby extend our sympathy to the two South African republics in their struggle to maintain their independence against the aggres sions of Great Britain DOWN WITH THE TRUSTS We express our unqualified op position to thse

denounce his aitempt to disperse the Legislature a coordinate branch of the gov ernment by the use of armed force as arbitrary unconstitutionaland unprecedented We condemn him for obstructing the execution of the writ of habeas corpus for refusing to obey the civil process of the loll for harboring those suspectedof the murder of William Goebel and for attempting to pardon them be fore accusation or indictment for using the militia to protect those charged with murder while attempting to flee from the State- dan we denounce him for disgrac ing the State of Kentucky by flee ing the jurisdiction of its courts and remaining a fugitive from jus tice under the protection of the Re puplican Governor of Indiana Resolved That the Republican convention held in Louisville on the 17th day of May 1900 having indorsed the course of William S Taylor has thereby made all his acts an issue in the coming cam puigu und has made itself parti ceps criuiinis to said conspiracy stud assassination and all the lawless acts of said Taylor STATE ISSUES REFERRED TO LEXING TON In the judgment of your com mittee all recommendations rela ting to State legislation belong properly to the coming State Convention to nominate a candidate for Governor on the 19th of July and therefore we recom mend that all matters of State leg islation be deferred to that con vention for settlement We cordially invite all voters in Kentucky who are opposed to the policy of the Republican party to unite with us in our effort to re store the Government to the hands of those who believe in constitu tional and honest administration of public affair There is scarcely a doubt but that the majority of Democrats in this State prefer a satisfactory ad justment of the questions that have heretofore divided our party but how this will be accomplished is beyond our reach of knowing and is a question for our State Convention to dispose of when it meets in Lexington July 19th To many Democrats who left the regular nominees last fall the election law seems to be a tremendous beam in their partys eye j to others the Republicanversion of Mr Goebels character was an nusnrmonntable obstacle and to many the meth ods by which the convention used to make its nominations were un pardonable Now in face of the various objections it seems to ua that no man will be able to enlist the support of all those who left and no party can shop its platform or make it broad enough for the varied opinions to mingle to get her in perfect harmony but be that us it may there is scarcely a doubt but that the most reasonable coiiCHfipiniiR will be made by the regular organized Democracy to make its platform as coinfortabje tie possible to those who J ftus last fall and as to the nominee whoever he may be he will Jje se lected by the same Democrats who will compose that convention At present it seems that thr party is willing and ready to rjiake such changes in the electioi law as will strip it tf its most objectionable clauses and thus bury one of the sharp edge tools so cunningly and politicalfoe eliminate a question that has al most driven mad some of our Dem ocratic brethrerl It ia a certainty that the party machinery will be so selected tbat there can not be an objector The voters of every precinct will elect a committeeman and the committee thus selected will choose a county chairman yeariscede that the minority has the moral oc legal right to controlour party is repulsive to good judg ment but to blot out if possible the issues that have divided us is charitable and just unless the same should be dune at the expense of truth and justice We believp iu the most liberal policy that the circumstances will permit Vel believe that the welfare of State as well as our party theI mends that the majority be not exacting It is our honest opinion that thousands of Democrats re gret their action ia nominees but there levingourI S r i k 5 Pstallsviewsdue deliberation we trust that

some time They are th Republicans and their estrange is due to political matters iu their own party At the hour mentioned above they met near Willis Bros store The words that passed between them we can not give for the reason no one seems to know From the best infor motion we can get but few words were exchanged until the fight was on Mr Nell using a cane while Mr Yarberry used a pocket knife Mr Yarberry received several hard licks while Mr Nell received two or three cuts abou the head and face The wounds are not considered dangerous but they are serious cuts It is said the knife used was a small pocket instrument and owing to this and the timely assistance of Mr E G Atkins and other in separating the combatants doubtless Mr Nell would have been more seriously hurt Mr Yarberrys head was considerably bruised but no blood was drawn byDrsafter which he got into a buggy and was driven to his residence It is to be hoped that no more trouble will follow that good judgment and wise council will prevent a repetition of the difficulty Judge W E Russell Dead Judge William E Russell died at his home in Lebanon last Friday macula of a complication of diseases Inctdenf- A old age For several
