25Gen John M Palmer former United States Senator from Illinois died at his residence in this city at 8 a m His death was caused by heart failure He was an honorary pallbearer a Gen McClernands funeral last Saturday Last night Gen Palmer was on the street viewing tbe State Fair illu m inations untilalate hour apparently well He was about 83 years old Gen Palmer complained early yesterday of a pain in his chest He slept uneasily last night and about 3 Mrs Palmer called a physician who did not think the Generals condition alarming The General awoke about 7 oclock this morning still complain ing He talked to his wife for a short time then fell into a doze and expired soon after SKETCH OF HIS LIFE John McCauley Palmer was born in Eagle Creeek Scott county Ky Sep tember 13 1817 He removed to Illinois in 1832 and in 1839 settled in Car linville He was admitted to the bar in 1840 was a delegate to the State Constitutional Convention in 1847 member of the State Senate in 18524 a delegate to the National Republican Convention at Philadelphia In 1856 presidential elector o n Republica- cket in I860 delegate to Peace Convention at Washington February 4 1861 he became Colonel of the Fourteenth Illinois volunteers in April 161 He participated in several campaigns and for bravery at Stone River was promoted to Major General of volt unteers in November 1862 He participated in the battle of Chickamauga and led the Fourteenth corps in th Atlanta campaign He was Governor- of Illinois from 1869 to 1873 He later served in the United States Senate a a Democrat In 1896 he was the candidate o f the Gold Democrats to President Signs of Victory Four years ago fortyeight more dice toral votes would have elected Bryan To be elected now he must get tha many votes in addition those he ha- r in 1896 and if he loses any of his form er votes he must get enough in addition to make up for the loss In 1896 several states on each side were very evenly divided A slight drift would have sent them over the line Everything depends now therefore on the direction of the drift A small majority in a state is safe if the drift is in the direction of making it secureThe Vermont election indicates that the drift there is toward Bryan The Democrats are Indisputably stronger in Vermont now than they were four j corsage What ligbtdoes that throw on tbe possibilities in other states The Republican vote in Vermont has fallen off about 10 per cent as compared with the corresponding election in 1890 while the Democratic vote has Increased about 10 per cent Indiana has 15 electoral Votes In 1890 the Republican vote there was 323754 out the Democratic 305573 If the Republicans hosts 10 pir cent and the Democrats gain 16 per trot thy Republican vulu in Indiana this year will be 291379

establishment and Strange was takento the hospital here Penn gave himself up to the author ities and is now in jan Whitlock was RollingsaPenn is also a lumberman The shoot ing was the result of a quarrel between the two men about a year ago when woundednPenn His Reasons for Supporting Bryan A distinguished citizen o f New Hampshire Hon Thomas Wentworth Higginson gives five good reasons for supporting future President William Jennings Bryan as follows 1 Because he has proved himself to leadeer of men as a president should be Mr McKinley on the other hand has mesn naturally led by others and has proven groundrexpllcitly ndpublicly taken when call cd upon to abandon it by the stronger men around him In other words Mr Bryan will at least be captain of his own ship and Mr McKinley will not wtexplidG t that considerations of principle are above considerations of finance and thattn his own words financial system can bealtered with less danger gad less disturbance to the country than the vital doctrines upon which free gov ernment rest Speech at Topeka Kan Aug 23rd 1000 3 Because he is tbe only one who has expressly reaffirmed as in his To peka speech the principle which made Lincoln Immortal that to apply the doctrine of equal rights only to superior classes or races is the vanguard of returning despotism and is a movement we must repulse lIor it will sub jugate us 4 Because he has had the wisdom to see that every presidential campaign must turn on some one leading principle and that just now that vital issue is to be found in imperialism By ira ptrlalism is meant the acquisition of territory with a view to making I t subject and tributary and not with a view lu making it a scJrgucrnlng and component part of the American uu Lou That Mich empire is now the recognized aim of the present admlnistra lion is at length olHuIally recognized in the recent circular nf the United States military government in the Phillp pints April 30 15KX which writes to Annricia sclwil superintendents aid and uhItuhhl the civilization this new part uf uir empire 5 Because hu is the only one vi distinctly recognizes that the practice of such Imperialismof the doctrine

Elkins Franklin Murphy N J Thomas Dolan and Come lius BUsS today on the coal strike situation A tall man from Pennsylvania joined the conference They refused to dis cuss how they proposed to change matters because it would defeat the objects- of the party When told that Croker wanted to meet him i n joint debate Hanna ughingly replied I am afraid Mr Croker would be too much forme A reporter asked Croker if he had seen that newspaper report in which Hanna said Croker was to be in the Cabinet in case of Bryans election Yes that is another one of Hannas tonightmaresnol responsible for funny things float- Ing through that mans brain He made that statement the same as be has made many others to injure tbe Democratic ticket But itwont I would not accept a position under Bryan or Hanna

bcenbanished from tbe stricken island and who was m Cincinnati Friday afternoon on his way to New York to report to the paper be was serving at the ruined city Mr Rice was the first outside newspaper

after his pass had been izlren up by Captain McCaleb and instructions had been issued to the military to press him in the wrecking corps hich is undertaking the herculean task of removing and burning debris and bodies liMy offense lay in sending out the truth concerning Galveston said Mr Rice to a Commercial Tribune man When I first reached there I sent ou an estimate of 5000 killed The au tboritics limited the dead to 1000 then Since that time they have gradually advanced the number until now Governor Sayers admits 12000 dead believe that 18000 would be nearer correct When I came away

San Saba Texas Great Loss of Life Feared WARNING NOTICE SENT OUT AUSTIN TEX Sept 24A telephone message recieved here last night by the chief of police from Llane says that San Saba forty miles north

people tonight the wires all being down Itls feared that there has been a great loss of life in the bottom as the rise was at night and came without warning The Colorado river here last night was

John Conner a brickmoulder from owling Green was burned to death near Edmonton last Wednesday night onner was engaged in burning a brick kiln at Edmonton for Mr A J Ham ton and slept alone in a little cabin on the yard He was seen in Edmon ton on the evening of the unfortunate occurrence very much under the inOuI cnceof liquor The supposition is that on reaching tbe cabin that he laid down on his bed of straw with alight cd pipe in his mouth and that be fell off to sleep and the fire from the pipe ignited the bedding The cabin was in a solid sheet of flames when first discovered atrd by the time assistance reached it was entirely gone Those attracted to the yard by the burning were horrified and sickened to sec the charred body of Conner who had per irbcd in the flames The body was near the door and indicated that he evidently had attempted to escape but in his stupid condition was unable to get out Conner was a married wan and lived in Bowling Green Glasgow Times Seilously Shot seriouslty wonnded by John Combs who wa serving as a special policeman abou- dark last Friday evening The shoot ing occurred near the corner of Malt tIwas drinking and boisterous and that he requested him to be quiet but instead of obeying his request he soon became more turbulent sceneIer He approached him the time and told him that unless he qui thagt m up This seemed to infuriate Pcdigo who sprang upon Combs and be choking him when the latter drew threee times iu rapid succession Two of the halls took effect one in the right side the region of the heart and the oilier just below the groin on the same side The uunded man fell and at his request was conveyed to the riSi dente of Mr F C Carter where b wounds were dressed It was at first thought that he was mortally wounded but he afterwards rallied and now In a fair slay to recover Injustice to Pcdigo it is fair to state that he claims lie thought Combs was onlr jollying him and that he w merely in play when he grappledwilh him Both men are about the same alage and unmarried and had long been personal friends and on the best of termsCombs surrendered to Sheriff Barbnw Inmedlately after the shootings was afterwards

speech made 1IY1 Democratic speaker come and lienr Hon Geo E Stone next Thursday the 4th day of October The courthouse should bo crowded The grounds for a new trial in tho Howard cave is that four of the jurors stated publicly before going en the jury that all the conspira tors ought to hang Tho jurow make affidavits that they rondo no such statement The Democrats of Illinois are jubilant over the prospects of car rying the State for Bryan The vote of the railroad men is lost to the Republicans and a Democratic majority of twentyfive thousand is confidently expected Robt E Burke Secretary of the local man agement promises to carry Chica go and Cook county b y forty thousand majority It is said that the Republicans can not get over fifteen thousand majority in the remainder of the State The Democrats of Adair county should be on the alert We were informed last Monday that Repub licans were operating in remote sections telling voters who are unable to reach the speakings all manner of stories They picture to them that tho Democratic par ty is trying to ruin the country and that it would be suicidal to elect either Beckham or Bryan electors There is work in Adair county that needs to be done If the party wants to reduce tho Re publican majority men must b put in the field James B Howard of Clay county charged with firing the shot that killed Governor Goebel is to hang The jury returned a ver dict last Wednesday morning at 980 giving him the death penalty The jury was in session three and a half hours and for a while it was believed that a verdict would not be reached After the result was made known it was learned that two Goebel Democrats favored at the start a life sentence The case will be appealed and in the meantime Howard will remain in the Frankfort jail Hero is the main feature in the new election law The State Board is to consist of one Demo crat and one Republican appointed by the Governor on recommen dation of the State Committees of the two parties with the Clerk of the Court of Appeals as umpire Each County Board shall consist of three members all appointed by the State Board but two of whom must be recommended respectively by the Democratic and Republican County Executive Committees It is believed that this bill will pass both Houses and become a law- ExSenator Gorman whose po litical judgment is conceded to be as good as that of any man in the country was in Washington last week and said of the outlook There is a drifta very decided driftin favor of the Democrats which justifies the hope that Bryan will be elected Political conditions seem much as they were in 1892 The men who are managing for the Democrats in New York say that they are going to carry the State They are sincerely con fident They behave they are going to succeed The Democratic man agers generally feel confidence in the general situation and believe that Mr Bryan is going to be elec ted The drift is strongly in that direction Hon J M Wood of Campbells ville spoke to a crowd of over three hundred voters at the court house last Monday He held the crowd from start to finish making one of the best Democratic speech es delivered in Columbia since the campaign opened He first took up the national issue and showed conclusively that McKinley was all wrong in the admistration of comparedMoKinley his hearers that the former was controlled by Mark Hanna and men of his ilk while the latter was a wise and patriotic citizen controlled by no man About onehalf of his speech was devoted to State issues and what he said concerning Yerkes Taylor etc was a plenty The whole of his speech was well received and accomplished much good A r IIt is less than one month until the election and it behooves the Democrats of Adair county to be lip and doing Every man who is interested in the success of his party should work dilligontly from now until the polls closes the 6th day of next month The county is conceded to the Republicans- but Taylors vote can be considerably cut down if there is u united effort upon the part of those who oppose Government by assassination True there are no local offices to fill at this election hut next year candidates will be be fore the people for every local po sition excepting that of circuit court clerk If the Democrats lie dormant now when the party needs every vote that can be gotten out the ticket will bo weaken for the next contest Go to work work in earnest and you will see that the Republican majority in Adair county will be maternally cut down It is true that some gentleman who have heretofore been identified with the Democratic party are no longer with usiTheir leaving was o f their choosing and no man should ques tion the right of another to vote as his conscience dictates If they like McKinleyism and Taylorism better than the principles enunciated by Jefferson and Jackeon and advocated by the Democratic par ty today they have a perfect right to express that opinion a t the polls The Democratic party did not tell them to leave and doubtless regrets that they are looking through a glass darkly There are not many of them and their filledeThere is not a doubt but the most important fight since this country became a Republic is now on but if the Democrats will do their duty W J Bryan will be the next Pres ident of the United States and J C W Beckham Governor of Ken tucky All together boys get in your saddles and ride your ponies until the last day in the evening Politically speaking there is but little enthusiasm in the Eleventh Congressional district but else where over the State the Demo crats are alive working day and night to bring out a full vote There is a marked difference in the size of the crowds attending the speakings of the two leading can didates for Governor At Mr Beckhams appointments from 3000 to 8000 people gather to hear him tell of the outrages per petrated at Frankfort last winter while Mr Yerkes crowd at any single appointment has never reached over 3000 and his asoem bled hearers are frequently esti mated at from 800 to 1000 At State Democratic headquarters the managers are confident that Mr Beckham will be elected but their confidence in his success will not lessen their zeal to make his ma jority as large as possible There fore every effort should be put forth to cut down the Republican majority in the Eleventh district Able speakers should be sent into the territory putting life into the Democrats A united effort would reduce t he Republican strength 2000 votes Taylor carried the district by little the rise of 10000 votes Give Yerkes the same ma jority in the Eleventh and say he should get 8000 in the Fifth the First and Second districts would offset the Eleventh and Fifthand with his majorities in the Fourth Seventh Eighth Mr Beckham wins He will carry the Seventh largely and will get small najori ties in the Third Eighth Ninth and Tenth At this time we can not see any reason for uneasiness upon the part of Democrats ya confidence should not lead the par ty to slacken zeal Work every day to swell the majority to its highest notch Capt J R Hindman who rep sented Adair county in the Ken tucky Legislature aa a Democrat served the

the people of tint locality and also of Adair county Adair county was named in hon or of John Adair a native of South Carolina being born in 1757 He was a descendant of the persecuted French Protestants who came over from France in 1090 up to 1712 and to the year that Louis XIV died which was in 1715 Gen Adair was a soldier in the American Revolution He was not more than eighteen years of when he engaged in the siege o Charleston and the battles of E tow Springs Monks Corner an inSavanahinSergeant Joseph lost his valuable life and where Capt Moses Shelby younger brother of Gov Shelby was severely wounded in the hip which wound crippled hi for life In 1820 John Adair was elected Governor of Kentucky in oppos tion tj Judge Logan Joseph D sha and Col Butler In all situations military and civil to which he was elevated by his country men he was an honest upright man who commanded the respect and confidence of his fellowciti zens In regard to the political situation in the bluegrass I will close this note by stating that I have been in this portion of the State more or less for two years I hive mixed and mingledwith all partiesPopulists Goebel Demo coats Brown men and Republicans cud nearly all the leading men who belong tot h e parties I have mentioned favor a fair election law The people in many portions of the upper counties favor Senator Alexanders bill which is a clean and complete re vision of the present law His bill taces the law as it existed pri or to tie Goebel bill and seeks to carefully revise and correct all defects I think that Jessamine county will go for Mr Beckham by a small majority Yerkes has ma- nY friends and will get a good vote No excitement as yet but I look for it next month I will close by saying that I sincerely hope that old Russell and Adair will hold their own in the coming campaign GEO R HOLT John D White vs Yerkes ExCongressman John D White who until recently has been re garded as a strong pillar in tls Republican party thus pays his respects to Mr Yerkes Republican nominee for Governor Yerkes is another kid glove office holder who may permit a neg ro to come to his house by the back door and yet Yerkes poses as u clean sober gentleman But it was he I believe who said of his father who was eloquent in prayer that he could dive deeper stay under longer and come upI dryer than any other advocate in prayer in Danville Ky And it was he that prostituted his Fed oral office of Collector of Internal Revenue in 1898 and 1899 in send iug his subordinates as politico workers into Southeastern Kentucky in violation of the Cousti tution of Kentucky and civil ser vice laws of the United States And yet he clings to that fat of lice and asks the people to vote for him in behalf of civil liberty I oppose him and I oppose McKin ley who lets him and others do these same things in violation of the Republican platform of 1890 on which I stood and in the priiu ciples wherein enunciated I still believe Why experiment on yourself with remedies of doubtful utility when you can get Chamberlains Cough Remed which has stood the test of time Twentyfive years sale and use have proven that remedy to be a prompte71 and certain cnre for

democratic declareet that the fact that trusts support the republican party ought to be sufficient proof that they expect protection from it The republican party cannot be relied upon to extinguish the trusts so long as it draws its campaign contribu tions from their overflowing banks Upon which side are the public interests Upon which side are individual interests Upon which side are your
