the remark attributed to him in his speech at rSalyersvhllethat mountaineers ought to have stood over Cler Leigh with revolvers while he was drawing the contest board H stated that he was very fond o Iri Leigh and did not approve of F covering a public servant with gun a The teachers of the public schools only reoieved 20 of their pay last Saturday instead of 40 which was due This shortage is duo from a misappropriation of the school funds last year Under Republi can misrule 180000 is now due certain cities on last year and must be made good out of the present n ediLaAr theIteachers of this State order to at least receive their moral sup port but now even now this defic it and game of hypocracy and the illegal use ofthe funds of the State due the teachers due the children have been used to forward the in terest of the Republican party It is no less than a square steal from the State a plain robbery of the children If there is a school Su perintendent in this State who can explain to his teachers the short en any other basis than the above which is one of the rankest frauds used to advance the interest and to aid in the election of the Republican ticket we would like to hear his reasons This deficit is due to the fact that the per capita was de clared too high last year purpose ly so The Civil Liberty and honest election howlers should explain why they used 130000 of the public school funds to advance their party interest where it did not belong to them Democrats wake up 1 Honesty has no fellow ship with such methods We were informed while in Midi dlesboro last week by a trust worthy gentleman that the Prohi bition cause was growing rapidly in that city Our informant also stated that the Prohibition papers had been excluded from the mails and that they recieved their papers by expres This ought to awaken those Republicans who kick against the use of strong drinks but who find pleasure in supporting McKin ley for McKinley is responsible for such an act when he permits the Postmaster General to exclude Prohibition papers from the mails The whole trouble is that the Pro hibition papers have been making it hot for McKmleys canteen pol icyin the Philippines Thousands otherjdrinkbeing shipped and sold to the peo ple in our New possessions and in order to prevent a full and broad understanding of this pernicious traffic the papers that attacks such a course have been excluded from the mails With Hanna and other trust magnates to shut the mills and close the minestake the bread from the mouths of thous and helpless women and children for the purpose of forcing their employers to vote the Republican ticket and McKinley to allow such discrimination to be made against the publication of Prohibition pa pers because they fight the rum traffic in the territories of our country and which would result in injury to his personal ambition is enough to shake the sober element and the Godfearing part of the Republican party It ought to shake them loose from the support of such a ticket We believe that Bryan will be elected but if his majority of the Ref constitutionality of the election law in North Carolina and two or anddRepublican will declare that no elections have been held in such States In other words we look ak publican party in power Assum ref tucky Republicans to revolt against such a steal They would doubtless get their Winchesters and other implements of war smoke less powder and steel bullets and match into Washington 100000 strong to peacefully protest against such an outrage and to see that correct methods prevail One of themost unaccountable events of American history is that Kentucky Republicans failed to brand Hays as thief and march to the Capital and seat Mr Tilden We have of ten wondered why

hear the reasons why they should support the entire Demo cratic ticket and for two hours they heard it Mr Hurt did not ap peal to the prejudices and passions but to reason and judgment He made a strong argument against McKinleys foreign policy and showed clearly that such a cause is dangerous to the welfaro of our own people Coming to our own hearthstone to the situation in Kentucky his logic ought to con vince doubting Democrats that their plain duty to their State their party and themselves is no less than a loyal and enthusiastic support of the Democratic nom neethat the election in this State will determine whether or not as sassination shall b e indorsed or whether the strong arm of the law shall be applied and guarantee the inalianable rights of life liberty and the pursuits of happiness Such logic is bound to bring forth good fruit There is not a locality in our proud old commonwealth that feels the need of Democratic rule and supremacy so much as the Eleventh Congressional District and we can truthfully say that no Democrats in any part of the State are more loyal and making a har der fight for the success of our nominees than the undaunted courageous Democrats of the Elev enth Inspired by a love of Demo cratic principles with no hope of reward save that which comes from government honestly admin istered they are making a brave courageous and effective fight against tremendous odds In pass ing through the eastern part of this district we received most en couraging reports and beyond a doubt better returns on election day will be the result of their ef forts Should the Democrats of other sections make as hard a fight as the Mountain Democrats Mr Beokham will be elected by 25000 majority Frank S Monnett ExAttorney General of Ohio and the man who made such a vigorous and damaging prosecution of the Standard Oil Trust and other Monopolies while in officethe man who refused an offer of 400000 to quit his prosecution the man who was turned bown for reelection to the same office by Ohio Republicans in a speech at Columbus last week renounced Republicanism and de dared his intention to support Mr Bryan Such men BB Monnett can rarely be found and when you find one he is not supporting Trust breeding machine now in power Monnett was a strong Republican but he cant indorse the McKinley policy Democrats dont wait for others to do the work that you can do This is a fight in which we are all interested Theres no time to lose nor votes to spare All we needall we want is a full and complete vote of our party and if this happens there need be no fears Stir up and acquaint yourself with the conditions surrounding you Dont permit a single Democrat to stay away from the polls if an honest effort of yours would induce him to vote

pleasant though it was made short by the pressure of business matters Lee county my old home is one of the best locations in that part of Vir ginia and while I only spent three days there yet I saw several hundred fine shorthorn cattle equal to any seen in the bluegrass section of this State The truth is that Lee county- Is a fine grazing and agricultural country My stay was so short that it was merely a handshake with many of my old friends and schoolmates but its great pleasure to shake occasionally Leaving Jonesville the capital of county I went directly to Big Gap iu the county of Wise yinjcthudirt which at that time was even ore valuable than gold It is the is platy where poles for electric lights were planted in the dense forests for more than two miles from the village and now stand as rainy sentinels keeping of watch over the magnificent structures to be erected that adorned the blue printsthe weapons of the real estate gents The place where many fond expectations and hard earned dollars were wrecked in the stream of depression and folly It is the place that went went down was a city now a town But it is a place beyond a doubt that the Great Maker of the universe intended to be a fit dwelling for thousrnds of happy and Intel people It suffered severely from mistakes in its early ca eer yet it has passed through its worst days and is slowly but surely recovery Its business men have passed h the fiery furnace of depression have kept the faith and will erelong receive the crown which they deserve Business in that part of the country is fairly good though city mak is not what it once was Coming from Big Stone I stopped Over a day in that magic plat of ground called Middlesboro This city whose builder and maker tied from the downward tendency of real estate some years ago is the home of seyeral Adair county people who are pushing busi sand doing well Business in Mid dlesboro is a little on the quiet ardorljust now due to the miners the closing of the

up greatly en hancing the business of the town and country In four hundred yards from the courthouse is an excellent tobacco plant for manufacturing purposes located in a firstclass house for carrying on the business The outfit is idle and can be secured for much less than cost and a ty bacconist could do well here in the manufacture of fine chewing and smoking tobacco The county togrows the tobacco and there is no good reason why this branch of business should not be pushed We already have a coopers shop doing a- very good business and a furniture fac tory is about ready to start all the machinery being on the ground Some ago there was a tannery in in Co furnished leather to all the ad- joiningcounties to There is money in enterprises If men of surplus means will come to the front Money made by taking chances Who will branch out A great many of the grown persons this county remember Cyrus Hurt brother of L B I 0thistlWestyears after he took his departure letters came but after awhile they stopped and for more than ten years not a word concerning him reached Columbia and the family mourned him as dead A short time ago news reached here that a man answering the description of Cyrus and named Hurt was in the Chi ckashaw Nation Letters were written developing that the lost had been found A few weeks ago Mr R M Grissom who is a first cousin of Mr Hurt visi tied the Nation and found him at a little place call Chickasba where he had been for a number of years It was a delightful meeting as Cyrus knew but little of the occurren ces in Adair county since he took his departure He did not know that Rol lin was married and many other Interesting incidents were told him He asked about every body in Adair county and is very anxious to see his moth ur and the rest of his family He has never married and informed Mr Gris som that he would visit his old home soon Slowly but surely the town of Colum Is improving and a few more fleet ug years will prove that this town has many advantages that arc not common to other cities of even greater popula tion Messrs Pile Morrison have decided to engage in the manufacture of furniture and they are now expect ing their machinery bought a few days ago which will enable them to make anything in the furniture line that this country needs and at prices lower than offered in the cities Then again we are to have a school placed on such- a basis that will guarantee success The Ladles Home Board of Educa tion located in New York has accepted the proposition of this community of 1500 and will in return give 8500 annually to aid
