sElizabethtown Ky Oct 1The Louisville Conference indorsed the committee report in the case of Rev E P Crowe charged with drunken ness and expelled him from the min istry and the church This action has also received the indorsement of some of the people of Elizabethtown who are conversant with the recent esca pades of Crowe in their town While Rev Newsum the cowboy preacher of Texas was conducting a meeting here Crow came to town and registered at the Showers House He was assigned to room No 10 the same as that occupied by Rev Newsum He had only been in town a day or two when he got very drunk His friends tried to get him to sober up but he didnt want to be sober He finally got to the point where he begat to see things all sorts of thingstOne night while was conducting his meeting Crowe entered the hotel under the influence of liquor and went to his room He retired but it seems soon felt his thirst rising and dressing in a suit of Rev New clothes instead of putting on his own and putting on slippers belonging to the evangelist he left the hotel going to a nearby bar room where he loaded up again He bought a pint bottle of liquor and re- urned In a hilarious condition How ever be got to his room without attracting undue attention but therehe found Rev Newsum in a state of mind over the disappearance of his clothes The latter did not admire the fit of the suit which Crowe had on nor did he enjoy the latters hilarity He went below and told the hotel proprietor that Mr Crowe must be ejected from the room Mr Smith the hotel man was prompt to act He went up stairs and found Crowe covered up head and ears in bed He ordered him to getup Edt said he youve been behav ing mighty badly Yell whatve you got to do with it anyway asked Crowe Ive got this much Im proprietor of this hotel and Ill give you just five minutes to get out of this room and this house or Ill have you put in jail With a good deal of trouble Mr Crowe got into his clothes and was piloted out of the hotel This incident occurred about four weeks ago The case of L M Russell who surrendered his credentials as a minister to the conference by reason of charge- in circulation about him which affec- his standing as a minister has been referred for trial before the Presiding Elder of his district the Rev J W BIgham The charges are to the ef fect that the husband of a certain woman intercepted a letter which Mr Russell had written to his wife and which he did not think was the proper kind of a letter for a minister and a married man to address to the wife of saidtfact that Mr Bussclll has surrendered his credentials will not prevent th trial of the case according to the rules of Methodist discipline Mr Russell it Is stated posed as a sanctificationist claiming that he never committed a sin- PROSPERITY They taffy iJio itrity is with us Is It Yes a hbniocpulhic dose First what brought It yinflation of the currency largely which the Republicans in 18JG told us would be dishonest and

dinner out of a tin pail and like the horse with his nose bag or the negro slave before the war eating enough to keep up your strength that you may continue to produce wealth for your masters How much do the Republicans prom ise you for keeping them in power maintaining the luxury of the rich and enabling the trusts to get possession the earth Just what you are get ing now not a cent more not a privilege more not the glimmer of a chance to enter more largely into our pros perity and to enjoy more fully the opportunities and blessings of American civilization What do the Democrats think of

is called the hot water serpent The unfortu nate wretch who has to undergo this barbarity is fastened securely toa stool A long coil of hose is wound around his limbs and body One end of the hose has a head like that of a serpent and into the mouth scalding water is poured The first lot of water is allowed to cool and is then le V out of the tall of the serpent and th hose refilled with more boiling water This process is repeated until the miserable criminal in frightful agony e xpiresoA Chinaman convicted of a particularly heinous offense usually Is sen tenced to blindness In the eastern provinces the man is burled up to his neck in the ground and then his eyes are plucked out The western provinces go this pleasant practice one better The criminal is laid on his back and firmly secured A man comes twso thent be beats at the eyes of the victim The tears enforced by the beating action fare the quicklime and the eyes are soon burned away The punishment of the rack recalls the days of the inquision although the Chinese have used the rack for up wards of 4000 years The rack Is used toextort confession The rack is composed of a strong plank of wood having at one end an cuet to accommodate the head and arms or caree three upright pieces of wood between which the ankles of the victim are se cured The two outside blocks are immovable the space between these and the middle one being sufficient to accommodate the legs of the prisoner The torturer Inserts between the side and the middle blocks a wr neo which he brats down with a nvillot This contracts the lower portion of the blocks until the ankles of the srlliPr er are cruMiod and pulvcrind A minor punishment Is inflicted up on those convicted of cheating or Ir log and Is performed tn the presence of the mandarin or

UMta UIMTN fr kthlsQett rJir 1 1 4t r w f by the Trusts IForced signticauce in the Philadelphia Times which earnestly supported Mr McKiu ley in 19U now comes out in advocacy of the election of Mr Bryan and that the great majority of members of the Amaligated Association of Iron Steel and Tin Workers with certain thoughtful leaders of that organzatton have reached the conclusion tbat their best Interests demand the the success of the Democratic party In both instances the trust issue has compelled this accession of strength to the Democratic cause The Philadelphia newspaper sees in the false economic system which has produced the trusts and placed Mark Hanna in malign control of the Republican party the originating cause of the throttling of individual industry in this country and of the policies of imperialism and militarism which now dominate the Government the outgrowth of commercialism in politics of the power of the few over the many the elevation of money above manhoodI The iron steel and tin workers notwithstanding Republican claims of industrial prosperity have experienced only a reduction of wages affecting some 60000 workmen as the result of increased trust power in the Govern mentThe meaning of these recent developments is that the press and public of the United States are alike taking aI clearer view of the workings of trust ism They see that these bloated monopolies constitute the most tremendously selfish influence ever felt in American life They are learning now that the sole and exclusive beneficia ries of the trust system are the multimillionaire trust magnates and the political party which does the bidding of the trusts They cannot but perceive that the people are being sacrificed for the further enrichment of the trusts and tbat American policies are being reversed and repudiated in order that the trusts shall have a wider field of Philt cone dition is one that the country must meet and meet now and the way to meet it is by a reassertion of the Democratic idea and the election of a Dem President There is reason to believe tbat the American people are at last fully awake to the vast menace contained in the dominance of thee trusts in American commercial industrial an political life and that they will on N vember G take action to remove this menace The issue of the peopl against the trusts has been forced on the people by ths trusts and the Re publican party It will be settled in favor of the people and at the cost of the trusts and the Republican party St Louis Republic Trusts and Sincerity Were their opportunities greater se rious harm would result from such foolish utterances as those of persons who boast of independence in politics and declare that neither partyIs sin cerely against trusts Everyone knows that the Democrat ic party favors tariff reform and a low tariff and that the Republican party favors tariff protection This is undisputed anywhere From this cardinal principle it fol lows that the Democratic party favors the policy which will surely regulate trusts The many trusts which soon after the enactment of the McKinley Dingley tariff bill sprang up all over the United States owed their existence chin jr to the privileges given Ameri can manufacturers by the tariff schc d ulr Having no foreign competition certalu mnnufuclurers formed combi ualions to crnicoinpctition in the United States Theo they arbitrarily dc mantled prices higher in this country than they U minded in Europe with castor trantportjiiion added Placing trust products on the frcea list vill instantly bring tariff trust priers in their tiaunil level Tarijr trusis rtiibrace fully 80 per cent of all the trusts in the United States If tho Democratic party does no more than regulate these trusts it will have

this Commonwealth N J List Thursday nftfruoon many Adair county citizens listened to tin Must logical speech delivered in Columbia for many days Hon- G oE Stone was the speaker and no gentleman was ever accorded closer attention He spoke for two hours araigmng the Republi CUll party for its many missdeeds and especially was his argument strong in denouncing McKinleys present imperialistic policy He showed that the Presidents treat ment of the Philippinos was a step to turn this Republic into an Em pire and in pathetic and earnest language he appealed to the people to vote the Democratic ticket elect Bryan and save the from such a calamity He too up the trusts convincing his hear ers that the masses were being dai ly robbed of their hard earnings and that the only relief in sight was a change in the administration of the affairs of this Government Speaking upon this subject he said My God how a poor man can vote the Republican ticket is some thing I can not understand He drew a lesson on State issues showing conclusively that Mr Goebeland Mr Beckham were legally elected Governor and Lieu tenant Governor of Kentucky and that John W Yerkes was the can didate of a party that said in their State Convention by resolution charged to have been written by Mr Yerkes himself that itendors ed the foul and dastardly murder of the leader of the Democratic party He also made it plain that if Yerkes was elected Governor he would pardon Caleb Powers Jiiii Howard and every other man con nected with the assassination Mr Stone dealt in facts was not abu sive and his speech evidently had- a fine effect Speaking of the National and State tickets the CourierJournal says that for Mr Yerkes as for Mr McKinley it has only amiable words to say Both are worthy though weal men It is what is backof them that counts It is what they stand for that the people must and will consider One of them is the representative ofa gigantic scheme to revolutionize National Government in the interest of a combine of public plunderers The other is the representative ofa combine tc condone murder and to exalt assassins Mr Yerkes is the merest decoy duck Behind him stalk the men who conspired to take and did take the life of William Goebel There is nothing else to the contest as far as the people of Kentucky are concerned and they will show at the polls the stuff they are made of Mr Bryan will be elected President and Godv as marquerading as Democrats will have a lovely time drying the eyes and soothing the woes of their Re publican bedfellows while the rest us will just car

which elected four years ago It isLet well known now that atlleast 90 per cent of that vote wi for Bryan this fall The Ger vote was almost unanimously against Bryan in 1896 while this we have trustworthy that leads us to believe that 80 per cent of the German in the pivotal states will be cast for Bryan This statement is true not alone of the Germans but other distinctly foreign classes

takes a great deal of interest inkin the the city will be greatly re dated He says at Democratic headquarters the State is confidently claimed for Beckham by 26000 majority and that tho Democrats are gaining every day The meeting of Bryan clubs at Indianapolis last week probably brought more Democrats together than had ever before assembled in the State at any one time Tho big guns of the nation were pres ent and with unanswerable speeches i worked up an enthusiasm that insures Indiana to the Democrats beyond a doubt Hon Rollin Hurt spoke to an audience of Glenville citizens last Friday night making a splendid speech A largo crowd was pres ent and the Democrats were great ly enthused At the close of Mr Hurts speech a club was organiz ed If you want to hear him skin the assassination crowd be at Harmony next Saturday afternoon Judge Joseph E Bertram of Monticello is doing good work for the Democratic party in 1Yay and adjoining counties Last week he met Congressman Boer ing in joint debate at Monticello The people know the rest When Judge Bertram was the Democratic candidate for the State Senate he carried Adair county over his bylittleThe Republicans have been howling about the unfairness of the Goebel law that they want justice but when Senator Thomas offered a measure last week absolutely repealing the present election law and returning to the old system of voting ten Republican Senators voted no defeating the bill The Goebel law is the very thing thd Republican leaders wan and they would rejoice if the ext session would adjourn without modifying it The registration at Louisville shows an increase of 5000 votes over last year Supplementalg istrationa will swell the proHentI vote which is 45000 to 46000 or more On the vote of 45000 the Democrats have

of union ism The organized operators with the ready aid of armed troops have determined to destroy organ = ized labor Mr McKinley has not yet called iu to help the coal trust as he helped and is still helping the Standard Oil trust with United States soldiers in Idaho but this is only because the Pennsylvania militia in complete and absolute control of the Republican party is deemed powerful enough to cope with the situation If United States troops were needed Mr Mc Kinley would not hesitate to fur nish them at the call of the trusts There is no pretense that mo nopoly is not fully organized It acts as one man in raising prices in limiting production in forcing down wages in extorting high prices from the unhappy employes in the pluck me me stores and in making war on every attempt of labor to organize for its own protection And the Republican maintainas a great armed force to backup the coal trust in its oppressions ex tortions and aggressions and to shoot the poor laborers who writh ing under injustice and the sting of poverty seek some means of redress Organized labor in general may 4well keep the Pennsylvania situa- tiont in full view Monopoly has i been encouraged by the Idaho
