Declares for Democracy HE SAYS BRYAN IS SURE OF ELECTION Ielectionan a man every way I McKinley and I regard his election astj reelpublic Wellingtons position in the pending Presidential campaign I called upon I the Senator at his office in the Citi zens National Bank this morning and in the course of an extended interview I became convinced that he is terribly in earnest He woald not make a definite statement as to the part he would take in the campaign but it is easy to see that he intends to aid Bryan Intact when asked the direct question if did not intend to do so Senator Wellington did not deny it but declared that just at present he is not prepared to describe the efforts he will to encompass the defeat of PresIE ident McKinley to whom he is bitter j ly opposed both on political and sonal grounds Here is the perI I had with him reported almost erI batlmIareyou I position in the Presidential campaign I asked OPPOSED TO MKIXLEY I only care to say at this time that I am unalterably opposed to McKinley and regard his election as a calamity to be averted no matter what be the cost was the answer Well Senator since jou say you will not take the stump and taking your opposition to McKinley into consideration how would it do to make a guess that you will work quietly to bring about the election of Bryan jQuietly Thats It Just at present I am devoting myself to my private business which has been sadly neglected for five years and so far as I know whatever I may do In politics will be done quietly But I think my in fluence will be felt He no longer represents Republi can principles his defeat is necessary to the preservation of the Republic and in addition he has betrayed and deceived me in my personal relations with him II You do not then endorse the Philadelphia platform FAITH OF OUH FATHERS- I do not II WhyBecause I regard it as a grave de parture from the faith of our fathers Itls not the Republicanism of Lincoln but an indorsement of inimical poll vies foisted upon this country by Mr McKinleyThe principle in this case is I suppose the Democrats term imperialism I said You are right the Senator responded I am an anti imperialist I do not talk one way in Congress and another way on the outside nor do I talk one way and act another 1 am not like old Hoar able to appeal to the past and the fnture and then stultify myself see only the present The past is gone and the future can care for Itself but Ill help take care of the present You believe then that there is a real threat of imperialism in the pres out policy of the Administration I most certainly do was the Sen ators emphatic response Will you tell mo wherein the Administration has so acted as to eon vince you of a danger to too republic from this source I asked THAT SECRET ALLIANCE dacry by its uinduct in the Philippines and by the trorkingsuftltc secret alliance which exists with GreatBritain 1 I You think then that the Govern menterrsln the Philippine matter Unquestionably It is impossible perpetuate the republic here and awayIfollow in the future You are also convinced that a secret understanding with Great Britain really exists- Beyond any doubt You remember the cry that was raised against Eng land of subserviency to England There was not one quarter the ground for it that there is for the same cry againt McKinley TIc would not dare do a thing that was unacceptable to England for he is nothing more than an English proconsul- I know it the Senator replied vehemently The best circumstantial evidence in the world proves it Did not- England open the official oorrespond ence of our Consul at Pretoria Had there been no secret understanding such a breach of iritcrnntional eti warbyIwhy was Macrum recalled and naysI cub sent to Pretoria Solely because of that Secret understanding AGAINST PARIS TREATY You said President McKinley had deceived and betrayed you in your per sonal relations Do you object to ex plaining that statement I asked- I do not and you may publish my explanation if you want to I was op posed to the Paris peace treaty and would never have voted for its radI fica tlon of my own volition I told the President so and he induced me to vote for it by solemnly pledging me that it was not the intention of him or the Government to forcibly hold or permanently acquire the Philippine Island lIe futhcr said his personal desire was to restore law and order in the islands and then submit the mater to Congress with the idea of hav- Ing it grant absolute freedom and self government to the Philippines With that pledge from President McKinley I voted fur the treaty Without it I never should have done so The res olution I offered in the Senate and which was the basis of ipy speech o the Philippine question provided for exactly what the President himself told me he desired to bring about It was thus that he beceived and betray me From what you have said Senator I said I gather that you endorse the Democratic platform as adopted a Kansas City In so far as it makes the Issue of imperialism paramount yes Senator r Wellington replied without hesitation lilt is your opinion then that imper lalism Is of greater and more pressing importance than the money question I said VITAL PRINCIPLE Without a doubt the ScnatorTc sponded Imperialism involves vi tal principle of government while the money question is merely one of goy ernment policy Beside the money question Is not in it at all Even if it were when it comes to that I am a better sound money man than McKin ley ever was I have always been from conviction a gold monomctallst while McKinley was dragged Into it Prior to 188G McKinley was no more of a sound money man than Bryan Th- IS proved by his every utterance May I say then that you regar Bryan as a safer man than lcKhiJey I asked Yes ariel without equivocation IT is safer in every way Senator lington answered with constantly ii- creasing t crnp iasSl wouldLralhcr 1 1 take Bryans word on any subject he continued than McKInleys hBut does the fact that you are wil ling to take his word make Bryan a safer man than McKinley to hold the reins of government I ventured to ask TilE ONE CHEAT ISSUE As I see it yes the Senator an swered Bryan is absolutely right on the ono great issue involved in this campaign and with the money question at rest for four years he is big ger a better and safer man than Mc Kinley Even if the money question were not settled Bryan is a man of too much sense to undertake to tamper with the currencyhWhat your o1 of the campaign be elected 2YouThere is absolutely no doubt of It Senator Wellington repJledhI knowt what I am talking about for I the forces that will come together to give McKinley the defeat he deserves What are those forces- I dont care to say at this time the Senator answered but I know what they are and I tell you McKin ley is as good as defeated now Bryan is certain to be our next President and I shall be grad to see him elected What do you think of the German vote in this campaign- In his reply Senator Wellington revealed the ideulty or the antlMcKin ley forces to whom he had just referr ed He answered Now you are getting near the markYou a mean then I asked II that the Germans will combine to defeat McKinleyTHE GERMAN VOTE Yes sir I do the Senator replied and I know what I am talking about The Germans control this situation and while they are not given to loud talking they speak decisively at the polls and I can tell you that the fire of resentment at McKirileys conduct is burning with constantly increasing fury In the breast of every German In the country and that it will burst forth into a consuming flame on elec dayWhat do you think of the result in Maryland I asked The Senator leaned back in his re volving chair and laughed a laugh of satisfaction as he responded Maryland Why Maryland will be for Bryan of course Oh there Is no donbt about that The State is gone and JJryan will get Marylands Electo rial votes But still being a Republican how is it that you can urge the election of a Democratic President Simply because I believe I am serv antunfit man and because tha in the end the party will profit by McKinleys defeat It is true then that you regard McKinley asuufit for the Presidency Most certainly I do the Senator responded Apart from all partisan ton tally unfit for theantes Why was my last question Because he is so weak and vacillat ing that he cant stick to an opinion over nIght If he could know his own mind and beconsistent fur 24 hours at a time he might do butsuch a thing treason is impossible with him and for that he is unfit to be President Cumberland Md Cor Baltimore American Story OCA Slave To be bound hand audfoot for years by the chains of

in a meeting held by Revs Martin Baker II S Parrish and W E Milam at the old log church Ho joined the Pwabyte rian Church at Columbia in which he lived a consistent and honored member and Elder until his death February 4 1900 He was married to Miss Eliza beth M McLary April 22 1802 who died June 20 1871 leavingto is charge two sons and two daugh ters His second marriage was to Miss Patra A Browning January 5 1872 who died November 10 His third marriage was to Margaret E Tresenriter Oc ober 10 1895 To him wore born five children four by his first wife and one by his second wife three of whom are still living one in Texas one in Missouriand one in Kentucky- As a Sundayschool man he had no superior and perhaps no equal in the community in which ho lived He had been connected with the Sundayschool and Suns dayschool work since its organi zation at Union in 1855 He was for a long time its efficient Superintendent and as such was always prompt and prepared ever ready to go forward never back ward watching continuously with jealous eye tho interest of the young people of his community- As a teacher he was at all times prepared As soon as one lesson was recited he commenced the study of the next not only its outline but its minutia was studi ed closely and was never at a loss in his class He had made the Bible the one great textbook of his life hence the readiness with which ho could call up and apply almost any Scripture or Scriptural incident likely to come up in a Sunday school lesson or Bible talk In a revival meeting he was over ready with heart and hand toI do what he could whether at his churth or some other church and eternity alone will tell the effects of his life and the reward of his labors in the circles in which he livedPrompt at church at prayer meeting at Sundayschool letting his light shine makes us miss him the more causing us to feel the loss of his association his sympa thy and his counsel the greater He died as he lived a faithful servant of God In his last moments ho said III dont feel that cctasy of joy that some feel but I am resting my all in Gods hands I dont know what better to do than to stand firm on tho promises of God I have been trying to serve him a long time and I dont think he will forsako me now His funeral was preached by the writer from Nom 2310IILet me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like His

nessUpon this occasion we will mention some classes of people whomwe believe will vote for Bryan this year If you doubt it ask some of them Ask the drummer who he will vote for A vast number of them have lost their positions because of combi nations which permit of one travling man doing the work of several McKinley prosperity has hurt them He will tell you that he voted for McKinley four years ago He is going to vote for Bryan this year He can tell you why too He can talk The same brain and tongue that made him a good drummer makes him a good Bryan worker The drummer is not only going to vote for Bryan That is nothis speed He is going to work for him He is scattered all through this big country and he will come pretty near equaling the McKinley campaign orators in numberThe is going to be quite a factor in the campaign this fall Ask the man who keeps the cigar who he is going to vote for He voted for McKinley last year He Is going to vote for Bryan He has to buy his goods from the tobacco trust He cant make any money The trusts gobbles the profits of the businessThe stand is a great place for political discussion Men congregate there and talk about men conditions and issues The keeper of the store is looked up to as a man pretty well post ed He has much influence in the discussions His views of Bryan and trusts arc certain to set his friends thinkingAsk grocer who he is going to vote for Or the man who keeps the little hardware store Ask any of the storekeepers who are pinched by the trustYou will find that very few of them intend to vote against Mr Bryan The small dealer who was driven out of business by the gobbling trusts or who is so squeezed by the rapacious monstrosities that he makes but a scanty living will tell you that he is going to vote against Mr McKinley Ask any of the men who have been thrown out of employment by the trusts who they are going to vote for Ask any of the men who are aware that they arc being bled by the trusts who they are going to vote for They are going to vote for Bryan They will tell you that they are very sorry that they voted for McKinley four years ago The extraordinary growth and bold ness of the trusts during the past four years will make those Injured and affected vote for relief These gigantic combinations have gulped up the small dealer thrown vast numbers of people out of employment and the majority of them bleeding the people When man is In danger he seeks safety and when he is suffering he wants relief Mr McKInleyhad a chance to save and relieve the people from dangerous and criminal trusts but he has failed to do so His administration has been a trust incubator It has been most prolific of great and criminal combinations It has hatched out all kinds of capital istic schemes to bleed the people The man to appeal to is Bryan All the trusts are opposed to him They will use all their power to defeat him The fact is one of the best things that can be saH in favor of Mr Bryan The trusts are against Mr Bryan One of the worst things that can be shown against McKinley Is that th trusts will support him for reelection The trusts are for Mr McKinley And the trusts are only one issue in the campaigncertainly a most important one But there arc other Important issues Duiit you think it looks good for Bryan on the trust issuesSyracuse Telegram It Helped ma Battles Twentynine officers and

heaval 1 i b e Mr Bryans speech of accept all a IulivprM nt Indianapolis last vi uk witCH formally notified of his nomination is a master- Piece of logic rhetoric and eternal truth It will make the head wiserand the heart better of ev ery American who will read it un unlo = s he is a devout follower of the mammon of unrighteousness Mr Bryan devotes ninetenths of his argument to tho discussion of imperialism which was declared by tho convention that nominated him to bo the paramount issueI He considers it under the heads of morality and a business standpoint Ho shows clearly that a republic can not remain a truo re public and engage in a colonial system that we can not have freedom at home and serfdom abroad that no government is so good as home govornment rude though it may first be that from a financial stanpoint it could not work good to our own peoplethe great mass of American citizens that the favored few would prosper that an immense army would be necessary to force obedience to our laws and that conflicts and clashes may continually disturb the tranquility of ourpeoplo As a moral question ho shows beyond the shadow ofa doubt that it is wrong and wicked for a strong na tion to wrest the birthright theJ God given right from a weak nai tion that nowhere is there a Di vine command to Christianize tho people of any nation by tha power of the sword but tj the contrary acts of love and kindness must be the forerunner of tho acceptance uf Christianity Ho shows that the ploa of Republicans that we rimier control them null educate them is false to the history of co lonial government that they could not educate then and then control their destiny The man who will attempt to answer Mr Bryan on this question will find himselfconfronted with moun tains of truths over which no false theory can ever rise and 110 prece dent can ever approach The calling of the extra session of the Legislature for the purpose of modifying tho election law will give the Democratic members an opportunity to knock every prop from under the Republican con vention held in this State To re peal the law would do it or to modify it so as to destroy every vistage of partisan tendencies would do it The clamor made by the Republican leaders for a repeal of the law is not backed by pure and upright motives They do not want the law repealed but want it as a campaign cry They can work on the prejudices of the uninformed and make a mole hill appear as a mountain but if the mole hill does not exist then it cannot bo magnified If the law is amended so as to receive the en dorsement of tho Republicans it would bj the most partisan law ever enacted for no less than ab solute control of tho ballotbox would satisfy their demands Therefore we do not expect their clamor to cease until the election is over We donot approve the repeal of the law or its amend ment for the reason that it is not a fair law for we believe its oper ation would produce fair results if tho Republicans would allow it Wo favor its repeal merely as a pacifying measure to thousands of Democrats who believe that it is a partisan law made for that speci fic purpose It is not the demand nor the threats of Republicans that induce Democrats who be lieve tho law is good to favor a change but the pleadings of Dem ocrats Mr Stevenson in his speech of acceptance drives his straight and pointed argument to the heart of the great question now at issue He is a forceful speaker a logi cian who commands the admira tion of intelligence and is a man of spotless reputation In his speech he discussed several of the leading questions of national poli tics The party could not have selected a better roan and this nation ccrlu not and will not select a better Vice President He is a man weose fidelity to principle has been well tested whose ability and love of country embody the necessary elements of a states manThe defense in the trial of Ca lob Powers did all within its pow er to have ExGov Bradley and JudgeYost to appear and testify in behalfof Powers but they did not pSear Both theee men have tF t tho reputation of telling the truth and especially when on oath so as they would not appear it looks as if the truth would not help Powers Bradley and Yost are both Republicans and if they could have been of service to Powers by a true and full statement there is not a doubt but they would have been anxious to testify GLENS FORlt Miss Fannie Smythe is teachiig school at this place and the peo pIe are well pleased Mr C G Jeffries was in this section last week buying cattle A

interview is heartily commended by Democrats In this city Coupled with his Phlll pine policy It would supply us with all the advantages of an eastern base and would enable us to send thirty thousand men if necessary from Manilla to save Minister Conger and the with him As it is Democrats in this city fiercely resent the efforts of the Republican press to throw upon their party the responsibility for the inabil- Ity of the administration to spare more troops from Manilla for Chin For instance the Fhiadelphia Press which Is owned by PostmasterGener al Smith and therefore speaks by the card saysliThe troops cannot go because resistance to lawful authority in the Philippines is fostered by Bryan and Bryanism by the Kansas CIt platform and by such newspapers as urge withdrawal from the Philppines This aid comfort and countenance keeps the Filipinos in the field 1 maintains resistance It prevents pacificationMerely in passing that this statement is a most remarkable commentary on the recent official a Bertions of the administration that the war in the Philippines is practically over violent exception is taken to the assertion that the continuance of th rebellion is due to the Democrats As a matter of fact it is declared too be due to President McKinley treacherously violated the pledges of his army officers to give independence to our quondam Filipino allies an who was carried away by the lust o imperial rule to attempt to impose his rule on a people who had been fighting for their liberty for more thanI three centuries and who had won it i fair fight against SpainIFurthermore it is said if it had not been for the Filipino rebellion the United States army would now proba bly number only some 30000 menI strength before the Spanish war and would certainly not exceed 65000 The bill authorizing the present force would never have passed Congress had it not been for the almost tearful pleas of the President for men to support the honor of the nag which his greed bad impciilcd in the Philippines The present troubles it is said harej at least served to show the country something of the truth about th Philippine situation which the admin istration has been so sedulously con cealing Major General MacArthur has sent from Manilla a strong protest against withdrawing any troops at all from the Philippines for service in China and instead has asked for reinforcements He has urgently repre sented to Secretary Root that underI the system of garrisons adopted it Is impossible to redistribute his forceI when regiments are withdrawn so asJ to properly patrol the districts fro which they have been taken Secre tary Root thoroughly appreciates Gen eral MacArthurs views but the urIgency of the situation in China issue that he is compelled to detail regiments to Taku- Commenting on this Senator Wel lington Republican o f Maryland says If the situation in the Philiplpines is as favorable as the tration would have us believe theref is no reason why twelve or fifteenJ thousand men could not be sent fro there to China I think that wouldI be Americas fair quota of the Inter national force for the relief of Pekin and beyond the protection of Ameri can life and property this country has no business to interfere in the affairs of the Chinese Empire The Euro pean powers have sowed the wind and are now reaping the whirlwind They have been looking for trouble in Chi na for a long time and now they have It The fire they have kindled is a hot one and this government shouldj look well to it that the American troops are not used as a cats paw f the pulling out of European ches nutsThrough reports and private letters reaching the officials here it is becom ing manifest that the suppression of the Filipino insurrection is really a work of years

built a plank road from Louisville to what is now known as West Point The old Louis villa and Nashville turnpike was then built and the stage line started bc tween those two cities The old lob house was then turned into a tavern and kept by a man named George Moore The stage coach stopped there asdchanged horses Capt Camy kept a stage tavern there for a number of years An old man named Simcoe ran a blacksmltbsbop directly across the road and did a prosperous business The oldblacksmilh shop like the lviuse is still standing only in a much more dilapidated condition for the progress of civilization has covered up the oil logs of the house with a covering of weatherboards Otherwise It stands today as i did ninetytwo years ago with the exception that the old clap board roof has given away to tin In the 40s two men named Lovctt and Jones held up the stage coach at the tavern and after killing the driver the robbed the stage gctingaway with 60000 In gold which was on its way to Nashville with its owner The two highwaymen were pursued by a posse of farmers and being hard pressed buried the money on the farm that belonged to the owner of the tavern They were caught and taken
