PHILIPPINES The Administration Foil to Secure Any Campaign Red Fire Out of Its Colonial Policy Secretary of State Hay the Laughing Stock of the WorldVSpecial CorrespondenceC The administration employes in the war department are carefully censuring the reports of the amnesty celebra tion in the Philippines Itwas a failureI The natives were indifferent and sulky Not a corporals guard could be rounded up to go through the formalities pertaining to the festivallExtravagant promises were the Filipinos to celebrate A few amigos took the offers in goodJ faith and turned up with pictures ofI McKinley and Aguinaldo side by side and banners with the word inde pendence on them Judge Taft and other members of the peace commission saw that the whole affair was a fizzle and concluded not to lend their eloquence to the oc casion So the republicans are deprived of this particular bit of red fire for cam paign purposes They had intended to have an alleged amnesty celebration in order to make thepeople believe thatC the war is over It must have been a pretty slim affair when not even the Washington censor can lick it into shape for your Uncle BannaeThe War Not OcrlThe Chinese troubleforced the handC of the administration in the Philip pines It had to admit that such a vigorous war is on that 100000 troops wHIl be needed to conquer the Filipinos It will be remembered in this connection that Secretary Iloot just about a year ago was promising that the war wouldl be over and the troops returning at this timeCThe Porto Ricans too are making ittawkward for the administration They neglected to celebrate the Fourth of July alleging that they could not raise any money Yet they recently raisedlseveral thousands of dollars for a celecbration of the festival of their patron saint They fluttered thousands of Spanish flags and the stars andstripes were conspicuous by their absencetThis feast day happened second anniversary of Gen Miles landsing lie came promising freedom was greeted with flowers anti the United States flag was flung to thel breeez amid the greatest enthusiasm Since then the Iorto Ilicans have had a bitter experience with imperialism They have been denied the protection of our constitution They have beenIstarved under oppressive taxes they are still burdened with the Span ish laws and forms of court procedure It is unfortunate for the administra tion that its colonies areln such a state of open and overt rebellion Imperial ism is not popular at home and is hated by our unwilling subjects of alien races The Conceit of hay For several days Secretary Hay strut ted about and received congratulations on being the only real diplomat in the civilized world With the distin tlnguished aid of linister Wu TingI Fang he had extracted a message from Chinese sources announcing the safety ofMinister Conger The continental powers said at once that Hay and the administration were being duped by the Chinese who wished to gain timeIlIlly is vain and egotistical lIe stuck to his own estimate of his greatness for ten days Now however the state department comes off its perch and excepts the common sense view which most people have held all along The Chinese have gained time to ral1yi their Own forces the delay has sown dissension among the foreign powers preparing to march on Peking and the Chinese authorities are now threatening to hold the ministers as hostages in the interior of ountry them if war is declared by the killingI The motive actuating this anything but an admirable public sentiment has for once com polled McKinley to listen to its protest ImperIalism otir citizens will remain unavenged but a war with China could only have a disastrous I end We never had any busi ness in the barbaric country Of course McKinley will take no steps to rid this country of the increasing Chinese horde that flocks here to take the place of American labor but the fact that we are in the midst of a campaign made him much less valorous than when he promoted an unauthorized and unjust war against the Filipinos Democrat Harmonious Chairman Jones of the democratic national committee has been spendfng some time in the east He is pleased with the outlook The democrats are harmonious and united The people like the courageous and straightfor ward enunciation of principles in the platform Men of prominence whose opinion carries weight are daily flock ing to the democratic standard The republicans have plenty of money but their party machine is considerably jarred and disarranged by the dissensions growing opt of the

republican leaders seek to make people believe that there is no such issue in this country as that of im erlalism with its adjunct or prop of militarismThey to suppress the fact that the essence of imperialism is not autocracy at home but the exercise of dominion over alien peoples without their consent and against their will This dominion over alien subjects may be exercised by a congress no less really or offensively than by an emperor The objectionable thing is tie exercise of arbitrary power over conquered subjects rather than the agency through which that power is exercised The objectionable thing in short is imperialism rather than an emperorWhere there is imperialism an emperor is pretty sure to appear Rome was imperial while it was still a repub ie but the emperor followed imperial am as a natural sequel Those who will open their eyes can fail to see the same tendency here empire with unwilling subjects can only be held together by pinning it with bayonets Imperialism must be backed by a great army We have found that out already Our army is four timesay as it was before the imperial policy was entered upon and we are continually hearing that it is not large enough MacArthur cannot spare men from the Philippines even during the rainy season and he must have more as soon as the weather will permit active operationsWith large army comes the exercise of arbitrary power by the president It is necessary to intrust him such power Therefore our lib ertyloving fathers wisely insisted that large standing army must not be created Current events prove their wisdom With an army of 100000 the president assumes to govern without congress Instead of convening the representa tives of the people in a crisis like the present he takes action which as like y as not may involve us in a prolonged war of vast extent and taxing resources in men and means to he extreme of impoverishment and this he does without consulting the representatives of the people This lie could not do without a large rmy Without that he would have to all congress together If the people show no concern when the president assumes such enormous responsibilities anti involves the coun ry in such perils if they willingly everything to one man they that they are pretty nearly ripe for an emperora military master well as for imperialism or the im position of a hated yoke upon con quered subjects beyond the seas Chicago Chronicle It is said the republican cam paign managers now threatened with nervous prostration through fear of what Gov Roosevelt may say in his campaign speeches have at last hit upon the happy plan of arrangin the rough riders schedule so that lie will speak successively at widely separated points This will afford the colonel opportunity for spectacular dashes back anti forth across the country which will delight his heart and fill tim with the idea that he is strenuous and yet result in the least possible output of words Philadelphia Times Hanna proposes to partially buy and partially nteal the presidency and Mnj McKinley stands ready to accept the office thua obtained Since the day Moses brought down the tables of stone from Sinai the moral relation between the one Who steals and the one who receives stolen goods has been fixed unalterably Kansas City Times Senator Elkins continues to awaken tile echoes of the West Virginia hills with his shouts for Mr McKinley lIe declares that the administration needs neither an apologist nor a eulogist The administration therefore is better off than Stephen who needs bothChicago Chronicle IBUT ONE WAY TO DO IT Foitcrlnc Administration Should Be Driven from Power Arc the American people weary of war lEave they hail enough yet of the extra penny on the telegram and the express receipt the two cents on the bank check the multitudinous exactions falling not at all on the corporations lightly on the very rich and most onerously on the people of slender meanswhich go to make up the war tax Are they sick of the daily bulletins of the dead and crazed sacrificed in Luzon to keep down an insurrection officially reported as suppressed a year ago Do they count the cost of the Philippine experiment and con sider what 1COCOOOCO a year could do here at borne expended in irriga tion to malce the western deserts bios j som like the rose employed to establish

asdlfin4e1nowehonl l t be brought Into a war with Cfifsa Many other power there would be but one party in this country as long as the trouble lasted and that would be the administration party There stands out the wish that is father to the thought With what zeal will Henna and Dick and Brother Abner and Neeley and the rest of the vultures that fatten on the fruits of McKinleyism rush to the defense of Americans in China if by so doing they will hold the profitable control of government for years to come Protect Americans in China Of course and Americans everywhere else as well But a president who has rushed us into a long costly and bloody war in the Philippines with out the consent and scarcely with the knowledge of congress cannot be trusted to cope with this Chinese situation alone when his own close advisers admit that his personal polit ical interests would be greatly ad vanced by a war The country stands today at a point more critical than any it has occupied since 1861 A lingering war in the Philippines saps its strength Its soldiers and sailors are enveloped in the storm and the intrigue of the colossal Chinese field of battle At Washington is a mercenary imperialistic government which has profited vastly already politically and finan cially by one war and which sees in a second and greater one hope of indefinite continuance in power With true imperialistic selfassertion the president refuses to call congress together and any day Americans may find that the intrigues or the incompetence of a gang of scheming politicians have dragged this nation into a war with half of Europe What is the defense of the people First compel the president to call congress in extra session Second drive an administration which cant be trusted from power in

certainSt Louis Republic President McKinleys pushing to the front the outrageous claim that congress can legislate for the territories in defiance of the constitution is significant of his future intentions This is what exPresident Harrison referred to as a serious departure from right principles in the passage of the Iorto Rican tariff bill Indianapolis Sentinel Mr McKinley still aancres to his pet idea that the country has been made rich by taxation This is the one idea that he has been able to stick to without changing his opinion over night He has not yet however pointed out that

from timetotimebeen discussed by natural ists and physiologists as to whether the scorpion commits suicide by sting ing himself with his own venomous dart Experiments have often been made which consist in surrounding the scorpion with a circle of fire usually formed by small pieces of burning coals One may then see the animal agitate his tail in the air waving his dart to and fro over his head in a desperate movement and finally fall dead appearing to have decided that he could not escape from the flames and to innoculatc himself with his own vencm Tills idea is now however found to be erroneous as it has been proved that the scorpion is not affected by his own venomous fluid and the hypothesis of his suicide cannot be maintained It appears from later observations made upon the death of the scorpion under the con ditions in question that a more sim ple explanation is to be found Tile scorpion is in fact very sensitive to heat and is easily killed by a tem per ture not exceeding 60 degrees C If one concentrates the solar rays up on its back by means of a lens one may observe that he tries by means of his tail to remove the c usc of discomfort It is this movement of defense which has hitherto been mistaken for one of suicide and in reality the scorpion has been killed by tIle heat to which ho ha been exposed under such circum sUnws Scientific America 5 ANSWERS ROOSEVELT ExGov Altgeld Replies to the Charges of Republican Hero Refutes Charge of Cowardice of Mem ber of Democratic Party and Portrays Character of New York Governor In an address delivered before the Ohio Association of Democratic Clubs at To ledo on the evening of August 1 exGov John P Altgeld of Illinois replied effect ively to the speech delivered by Gov Roosevelt at Minneapolis in which the republican vice presidential candidate ac cused the men of the democratic party of openinghisThere are only two principles or sys tems of government known to mangov governmentbyapplied from without and Is repressive and In the end destructive because It arrests growth while the other works from within Is evolutionary and pro gressiveGovernment by force has existed for thousands of years and Its tendency Is everywhere the same It has checked growth arrested development cowed the nobler aspiration of men stunted the In tellect and covered the earth with suf feting and misery The constant tendency of such a government is toward a lower and a lower level and repressive measures become more and more severe until finally conditions are created which result In dissolution and death Formation of Our Republic The principle of governing by consent of the governed was first applied In Its broadest sense In the formation of our republic and it worked a revolution In human society It has given the world more progress in one century than it achieved in the 50 or GO centuries of recorded time By freeing the Intellect by encouraging the higher aspirations man leaped into an activity In all lines of human effort that had been impossible in the past there was a new birth in Inven tions in the industries in agriculture in art in literature in government and in education To this we are largely In debted for our shops our railroads our cities our agriculture and everything that makes us great Moving along the lines of and progress along the lines of evolution and development it is mastering matter it is annihilating space it is uniting man with his brother it Is bringing the human race to its God All of the nations of the earth have been affected by the principles of our declaration of Independence Incredible as it may seem at the close of this marvelous century which is the child of the declaration of independency we arc asked to go back to those principles which have cursed the world for thousands of years and which if again given sway will bring back the dark ages You ask who are the people and whence comes the influences that make this astounding proposition They arc the people whp represent greed rapacity and corruption They are the same class of people and they are the same influences that have arrested human progress and human development in all lands and In all periods where they had sway The fates that greed should be shortsighted and should hold the penny of Immediate advantage so close to its eye as to shut out the sun It Is n noticeable fact vcritled by all human experience that in no case does a policy that Is dictated solely by greed prove successful In the end On the contrary it always destroys the very Interest it was intended to serve and build up The successive steps toward destruc tion are always concentration of wealth in the hands of a few universal corrup tion subversion of the basic principles of

apparent again were shown to be from the effect of trusts Of the democratic partys connection with trusts the speaker saidBear In mind that every trust in Amer platrormEvenof the republican lee trust of New York n Plaits son are fight Ing our platform Why If they thought we would not overthrow the trusts they would not fight us Trusts do not fight for nothing We hive declared that private monopoly is Indefensible and shall not exist In America They know that men who are in earnest will find n way to snake the will of the people effective The trusts know their friends Even a casual glance shows you that there is a difference between the two great parties as regards trusts The trusts constitute the head the shoulders the spine the limbs and the soul of the republican party of today They own control and direct It They hare erased every great motto from Its banners and have substituted a vulgar dollar mzut The men who to day speak for the republican party as a rule are mer trust creatures who have to change their soni every moon In de tense of their rrnstcrd and secret em ployersOn other hand the trusts are only a speck on the till of the democratic party and it is iloinT Its best to lash them off In order to ptrnetuat their power the trusts rr nor ratelnt millions of dollars to help Mar Hanna debauch the American elections Will you help them or will you sand for your own independence arid the Independence and happincfs of your children- A careful history of Die events leading u to the war with Snnln was given In whir- it C was conclusively shown that the democratic members of congress were leaders in the demand for Interference In Cuba but these leaders did not anticipate the present policy of Imperialism that has grown out of that war because of the policy of the present administration Referring to the war In the Philippines and the subject of expansion Gov Atgeld said War In Philippines Long before we declared war against Spain rnln Cuba the P rnt the had been war for their own independence They continued this warfare anl drove the Spaniards oft the islands And we are now engaged In a war to rob the islanders of their independence and snake the people subjects not citizens of this republic There Is today no question of expan sion before the American people and all the talk about expansion is Ifs effort to conceal and to t the public The sole question Is whether we shall go Into the colonial business with England and the despotic nations of Eu rope Let me say here that the demo cratic party has been the patty of expansion It gave to our republic the Coon of the Mississippi and Florida Je Mexico and California The democratic party believes that moving along the line of natural growth and do vclopment and without violating the prin freedom that the comeC Cbeconstitutional htrSeC on the north and the Vest Indian Islands on the south will rap for admission to this republic It believes that the time will come when from the frozen skits of the north to the warm waters of the south there will be one people one flag one civ ilization one great brotherhood of man But no such question Is now before us What do the defenders of the adminis ration sayVAt this point the speech by Gov Roosevelt at Minneapolis Is taken up and the arraignment given It Is a scathing one Of It the speaker said Speech Without an Argument Recently a gentlemen in New York who has for having been alone In Cubaa gentleman who haadopt cd as his life or coat pf arms two PV and a double S which four letters signify pompous posing and strenuous strutting capital of New York and went to St Paul and delivered a speech to an association of republican clubs The speech has not from beginning to end a argument or a single accurate his torical reference a speech that is made up of invective misrepresentations and vitu eration Ordinarily the speech would not be no ticed even IB a country newspaper but In- RKtHuch ax it was matte hy a nan

was made by a man who is a candidate for the suffrages of the Amer lean people inasmuch as It was made by a man who Is relied on to secure the per petuation of the regime of hypocrisy and revolution in the white house who is re lied on to help make the grasp and control of British influence over our people still more complete I will notice this speech to see the kind of misrepresentations that the republican party feels compelled to re sort to Referring to the democrats he said They stand for lawlessness and disorder for dishonesty and dishonor for license and disaster at home and cowardly shrink lag from duty abroad This Is a reflection on the Intelligence and patriotism and the honor of every democrat in the country It Is a personal Insult to the six and one halfmillion of men who supported Mr Bryan In 1836 and to the I r who are going to support him in 1900 The question arises Is this the language of a sincere and discreet man and there fore worthy of notice or is It simply the hysterical rant of a political mountebank and therefore to be treated with con tempt He gives no facts and advances no arguments in support of this charge It Is simply an assertion He himself in evi dence Aside from truthfulness It involves his sincerity and discretion Incident of a Public Career Who then is this man and what Is his history Personalities are offensive and I will not Indulge in them But surely when we are thus brutally assaulted we may ask who It Is that is berating us I will notice only a few of the incidents of his public career which throw light on the question of his sincerity and discretion I find It recorded that years ago he was a member of the New York legislature and on one occasion he roused the hopes of the country by making a a class which he called the criminal rich But he at once dashed these hopes by turn- Ing around and voting with and for these very criminal rich whom he had de nouncedIn years 1S9TS he held a federal of flee In Washington and In order to paying his taxes in New York ho signed an affidavit and swore before the ever living God that he was not a citizen of New York If this was true then under the constitution of New York he would not have been eligible for the office of governor of that state By subsequently accepting a nomination and election to also he showed that he did not believe own affidavit This being so may it not be that he does not believe the charge that he has made against us- Killed a Spaniard It is next recorded that he entered the Spanish war In Cuba and although his reg iment was commanded by another man he succeeded by means of that modern weapon of warfare known as a newspaper bureau in winning more renown In a week than Gen Grant did In four years of hard fight lag and ho seems to be the only man on this continent who boasts of having with Spanlard In his book he says As they turned to run I closed In and fired twice missing the first and killing the second He then boasts that he had considered this feat unique and so it Is He Is the first brave man to shoot an enemy In the back Again the modern historians tell us that it was he who first demonstrated to man maybetrue mission Is to develop tin plate heroes The records at Albany show that the governor got the legislature to pass a law taxing the franchises of corporations most righteous law But the records also show that at the demands of Tom Platt legislature this law as the corporations dictated The canal fund of New York had been p01iticiansiprosecution the governor has not brought ono of these men to justice History records the fact that the govern or has never lost an opportunity when standing in the temple or the market place to make loud protestations of heroic virtue but the historian has searched In vain for any evidence of performance The volume performanceVulgar Assaults IgnoredV I wish to avoid even the appearance of severity not the language to properly charactrlze this mans career I attempt it He Is the right man to defend criminal aggression and the president of conquest the burning of towns the slaughter of people and the assassination of liberty But the democratic party will pay no attention to his vuigarassaults speechIt decide at Kansas City that they still believed In free silver This decision was reached In their committee by a vote of 26 to 24 so that It appears they only have 52 per cent of allHadas a candidate for so dignified an office as the vice presidency should do he would have told his audience that there were two sets of delegates at the Kansas City convention One set wanted slmplyto reaffirm the Chicago platform claiming that inasmuch as that platform contained as strongadd clear a plank on the financial question as could ba framed a reaffirmation was all that was necessaryThe set of delegates Insisted on having a special reiteration of the financial plank and they prevailed Had they failed and the Chicago platform simply been reaffirmed the principles for which the party stands would have been the same It was not a difference of principle between the delegates but simply a difference of opin statingthatcertainly knew this Now when a democrat stoops to misrep resentation he Is called pettifogger and a demagogue but I suppose that when the re publican candidate for the vice presidency stoops to do this it will be called strenuous life The administrations Philippine was carefully Investigated and showed clearly how that policy was leading on to militarism and then In closing he said Lincoln Immortal Words Listen to the Immortal words of Abra ham Lincoln What constitutes the bulwarks of our liberty and independence It Is not our frowning battlements or bristling sea coasts our army or our navy Our reliance is In the love of liberty

returned with a verdict of guilty as charged in the indictment and fixed his punishment in the penitentiary for 99 years This verdict does not meet the ap probation of those who have to discredit the prosecution and to assert that Powers was fre from crime but at no time have wo believed that Republicans would endorse conviction even though Powers should openly ac knowledgo to participation in the crime nor would they have ac cepted it had the jury been com posedof bright and shining angels from the land of perfect day We accept the verdict as a guarantee to life as an honest conviction of twelve men after heariug all th evidence for and against the unfortunate man Wo feel sorry fa men who will commit crime but justice cries out He that shedetI- lnaua blood by man shall hid blood be shedand in this case the jury leaning to mercy ha given Powers a life sentence in stead of the death penalty Powers should feel thankfullthbnkful that be is spared to live even in confinement Mr F J Campbell editor and manager of the Progressive llome Journal a Democratic paper pub lishpd in Somerset is doing a good work not only for hisfpart- but for his section of country Mr Campbell is the right man in the right plate and the people of that section should give him a hearty support and we feel confi dOlt that this will be done for merit will eventually win It has been said since its

present the above picture of the Democratic nominee for Congress in this district We feel it our duty to acquaint the readers of the News with the nominee in so far as we are able but owing to our limited space a brief mention must suffice Ben V Smith was born in 1860 in the county of Pulaski where heI spent his youthful days in tilling the soil Inspired by a laudable ambition he set to work in earlyI life to prepare himself for a successful business career Attending the common schools of his section and with an unyield ing determination ha finally fin ished a broad and thorough educa tion in Kentucky University find in a normalBchool in Ohio After a long and arduous struggle to educate himself he studied law and was admitted to the bar at Somerset in 1800 and has been in the practice of his chosen profession since that time Mr Smitl- is an active party worker alway- its line ever ready to advance his partys interest by hard and un ceasing work In 1896 he made the race for the judgeship of Pulaski county an reduced the strong and powerful Republican majority to less 400 He has served as State Cen tral Committeeman in this district to the entire satisfaction of hi party resigning to accept the ination for Congress Mr Sntit is an interesting speaker thor oughly posted and eminently fitted for the high and honorable posi tion for which his party has se lected him He is a man of recognized abili ty a Democrat of unflinching nerve and there is not the shad ow of reason why any man wh calls himself a Democrat should fail to vote for him Owing to the tremendous Republican jority in the district DirSmit may not be elected but the people of this end of the district should remember that we need a Congress man from this district who would work for the improvement of Cum navigatble to Burnside If this is desire- e then we ask you to vote for Smith who would not forgot no forsake your needs and demands if elected but would workunceas ingly to accomplish good to the district The Democrats of Adair count should be on the alert Tho Re publicans have commenced their came paign and will use every means tepoll their full vote They claim afterr the moon and stars and to hear thEhuuinformol would conclude that Mr Beckham was not in this fight deceivedsHe is as sure to be continued in office as the day of election is sure to come Take a seat and let us reason about the matter Last year on the face of tho returns Taylor had a majority of something over 2000 when the result between him and Mr Goebel was announced by the Commissioners Fraud was charged and a contest olectioYll was murdered and Mr Beckham was declared tho Governor by all th courts He is now holding the position legally and is making an excellent chief Executive In this contest does any one suppose that Mr Beckham will receive lesser vote than did Mt Goebel He will poll every vote cast for the Democratic ticket in 1899 and thousands beside Sixtyper cent it is said of the Brown voto will bo recorded for Mr Beckhamt and several thdnsauil railroad em ployes who lined tip agains the lait year will stand fey D e- ruabet clIn this conttit ItdbB L not lie in the breeches of the Re publican party to defeat Mr Beckham but every Democrat sh mid do his utmost to make the majority as largens possible The Republican party with its last Winters record will not be given the reins of government in Kentucky Mark the prediction We have already heard nRepubr lunn any that Powers would not be in confinement six mouths Wo take it that he believes Yerkos wille Im elected end then grunt pardon to Powers No ono doubts but Powers nndall the consPira- tors and murderers would be set at should Yerkes be elected ut thank God this unfortunate condition does not exist neither do we believe that it will If murderers await liberation by the election of Republicans in this Stttte then it is high time that the 11 W abiding people prevent such eke tion Powers has been fairly tried before a competent jury comprised of B Democrats 8 Brown Demo crats and 1 Republican The verdict was unanimous and to liber ate him without further develop meuts would place a premium on crime Wo do not believe that Yerkes will ever have power to in terfere During the Russell Springs Fair we talked with a number of gentlemen who reside at Liberty ask ling them how many Democrats in Casey county will vote for Yerkes Invariably the answer came t110 lone but upon the other hand all vote for Mr Beckham bu one t and that one may conclude to fall into lino before the election Qne gentleman giving the mans saidsHe come i he is a man who is very fond of good company and as sure as you are living ho will vote for Beck 1hnm We were told by respon 1sible men in Russell that only ou 1man who has heretofore been a Democrat will vote for Yerkes On Monday the 3d of September hoistB ed every county seat peoplhconvinced language ble that this State must not be controlled by a party indorsing

becomes honest and courageous men wisdoh1 so as to eleminate all tho objectionable features of the law as it now stands and thus bring about a better feeling taking the measure out of politics It

the county is proud of each and everyone of them Imparting knowledge to the young is a laudaable and prais worthy calling and those who are engaged in the work should take great pride in the profession When children are in school the teacher should take the same interest in advancing their progress intellectually moral ly and religiously as the parent and we have not a doubt but the pupils in Adair county are getting good and wholesome instructions along these lines Teach a child to walk in that straight and narrowpath and when it grows older it will not depart from it The evils of the world should be i n stilled into their minds and an admonition to shun them deeply impressed This is the season for brandy dis- tillerIes and the boys should be taught the curse of drink Last

of all their friends Their loss to them seems doubly greatS as it leaves them childless yet consolation it should be to them to know that their little Stanton is now with GodFor I say unto you that in heaven the angels do always behold the face of my Father which Is in heaven Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of heaven What a happy future for him com pared to the sorrows and temptations he has escaped in this world This life at best is short and the parting Is only for a few years which are nothing compared to the endless eternity spent with our loved ones Let your hopes rest in this glorious future and like David be able to say While theechild was yet alive I fasted and HHfbut now he is dead wherefore should I fast Can I bring him back again I shall go to him but he shall not return to me Then pray for resignation to the Divine will with faith that you shall soon be reunited And the mother gave in tears and pain The flowers she

Gradyvillr this county on Christmas day and that every body was invited to altlcnd and bring with them all the dogs they could muster 1 accordingly mounted my horse at 8 oclock on the appointed morning and started for the grand rally I runic rapidly for fear of being too late until I arrived within about two miles of the appointed place when upon a high hill I stopped and was not fied by blasts from at least onehun dred horns trumpets conchs and bu Klcs of every size and note that every body with his friend was making one grand rally for the appointed place- I gave them one answering blast from my bugle put spurs to my hare and was soon landed safe and sound amidst the assembled throng I must say in truth that I was not prepared to meet such a crowd as I there met I may be a mild gucsser at the number of human beings there but I do think there must have been from three to fivehundred persons present besides almost as many dogs consisting of mongrel puppy whelp and hound and cur of low degree Our much esteemed friend Capt II i iiclnian as called by the crowd to tako command of the hunters He therefore delegated an old and ex perienced hunter by the name of Yates who understood the woods in that re gion perfectly to take charge of his foxshlp He started with his charge to a thick woods a half mile away with InstructI- ons to set him at liberty in about fifteen minuets The Captain then took charge of the hunters and marched them a short distance to a large field near by and urrainged them a few paces in frontal the main crowd to await the signal for the onset We were scarcely In our places when a straggle who chanced to be at the upper end of the field announced in a clear shrill voice that the fox had been loosed and was coming as straight as his legs could carry him to the gap ing jaws o tmore than a hundre dogs We looked There he came sure enough Not a word was spoken i not a soundwas heard On he came nearer and still nearer My pulse beat high every hair on my head stood on ends But still he came not once dreaming what a snare he was running into When within not more than ten feet of the dogs he eras discovered by one more matchless than the rest It was then that the trial so much talked of RUing the hunters be tween the nd fox aad the hounds cofBBiccced The foxaVlretwema to hi abtac wttilttrttltb U sit tiiT tioavotii himself he turned a little an 1 gathering himself up for the race lie ran about fifty yards without seeming to gain any advantage over his pursuers By this time every dog was in full chase The fox seemed to be measuring their speed as there was not more than ten feet between them All at once he turned and deliberately sur veyed the crowd After satisfying him self with regard to the speed of his pursuers having no hat to wave over his bead he raised his plume over his back three times as a token of defi ance gathered himself for the finish Up to this time not a word had been spoken not a sound came from that vast throng But when the fox began to increase the distance between him self and his enemies such a shout went up as I have never before head In running about onehalf mile while they were still In sight I think the fox had gained onehundred and fifty yards and continued to gain to the cud of the chase which ended a few miles away when Sir Reynard found refnge in one of his many re treats so common in that hilly country a cave So ends this chapter but in conclu sion I must say a word about the people on that occasion I never saw a more genteel looking crowd of the size in my life I didnt see or hear of one drop of whisky or hear a single profane word used that day Everybody was in the best of humor all believed their dogs the best and all were well pleased with their

plurality of four years ago are asserting that Mr Bryan cannot carry Indiana should read and ponder what the independent republican Indianapolis News says The more that one knows of the situ anon in Indiana the less will one venture to predict the result of the flection next November And those people who are paying so freely now four months prior to the election that McKinley or Bryan as the case may be cannot carry Indian afford by these very assertions the best proof that they do not know what the pro talking about For the slightest in vestigation will show them that there at many uncertain
