McKinley and his supporters established an American colo y in Porto Rico when they put a tar iff and a proconsul on tbat IslandIt was no longer a part of the United States It was excluded from the

object the placing upon the PhlU pinos of a similar colonial system of government On this issue McKinley comes before the American people Of this pull he asks their approval If the appro al is given

Chalrniau Jones Declares It Is All Over But The Votingv Chicago Oct 22 Chairman JOnes of the Democratic National Committee said today I do not believe there is any doubt but that Mr Bryan will carry New York I believe our chan ces for carrying Ohio are better than the Republicans I regard Illinois as an exceedingly doubtful State Tele grams from the chairman of the State Democratic Committee of California say we are going to carry California Advtces from that State awhile ago were somewhat doubtful as to the re salt Mayor Phelan of San Erancisco ys there is no doubt about the State One of the causes of this change of sen ment in California is the decision of Judge Estes on the Chinese exclusion act in which he held that a Chinaman at any port in the United States could goat any other port en route the same as a Chinaman in Hawaii could visit a city in any part of the Unite- States thus practically throwing the door open to the free of China m Isendoubt of the election of Mr Bryan Returns To Find Wife Wed Like one risen from the dead James Chapman made his appearance in Ak n 0 the other day alive and well with a purse well filled with Klon dike gold Eighteen years ago Chapman left Akron His home life had not been particularly happy and he resolved to go to Alaska as a missiona ry among the Indians His wife con nted and agreed to care for the chil dren Time passed and the husband did not return He had written regu larly for some time but finally his letters wholly ceased and his wife con cluded he was dead Two years ago she was married to Charles K Ives In the meantime Chapman had worked among the Indians prospect- Ing for gold when he had opportunity Three years ago he joined the rush to the rich new fields of the frozen north dotg come and resume his domestic relations and with his wealth assist in forgetting the past On his arrival Chapman learned of his wifes second marriage from her own lips Almost without a word he left the house and after a visit in the country with friends will return to Alaska tInhis speech at Danville Saturday Mr Yerkes took occasion for the first time to deny the allegations ot the Hun James Andrew Scott with reference toth alleged secret conference at the GalL House in Louisville at thYe death of William Goebel was Yby saying that at no time by no per 1son in no way was the murder death of or the doing of harm inan y way or in any form to Senator Goebel or to any other person mentioned or discussed at that conference This tmaybe true but why has Mr Ycrkes remained silent so long though repeatedly asked to deny or affirm He could have saved himself much trouble by answering questions propounded to him last June by a paper published withIn ten miles of his home and which have confronted him in newspapers all

true that some Democrats in this StatQ will vote for Mr Yerkes against Mr Beck ham Why it is that in a fight like this that Democrats can not of get over their soreness of one year ago we are unable to discover un less it is that they aro yeti mad because some hotheaded Demo crats cannot bear with them and charge them with holding to Republican sentiment We believe firmly believe that is the main reason because the Democratic party the Democratic nominee has done every act that these dis satisfied Democrats have demand ed The Democrats who supportI od Brown last year demanded tha t voters should elect the county comI mittees that the Goebel election law should bo repealed and that the candidate should receive his nomination fairly All these de fnnnds have been honestly ana fairly granted and now at the nipreme hour of peril many of them are not in line for the Dem ocratic nominee for Governor of the State No party has made a harder effort or grants- nvvo fully the demands of the th- so dissatisfied element in any Stale Miui has the Democratic party i this State No candidate ever xe cived u nomination from any tarty or any people on a higher md more honorable plan than did Ur Beckham And yet there are men whose heads have whitened in the service of their party who a giving all the aid possible to enthrone the Republican party in this State We hear them speak of the crooked deeds of the past we hear them charge the Democratic party with partisan prejudice in prosecuting a gang of murderers who conspired to murder a Legislature and who did murder our leader and yet we do not hear a single one of them denounce the partisan acts of the other side Judge Evans a federal judge i n the city of Louisville is commit 1ting the most partisan acts ever known in the history of our State or the annals of partisan demands Tlio federal court in this State has ceased to be a court of honest enquirer but isbeingused to advance the interest of the Republican party Democrats alone are indicted Democrats alone are prosecuted and convicted for the violation of the federal law that gives special guarantee to negro voters Under this law Evans is imposing heavy flues and sending Democrats to prison while his Republican cohorts intimidators ballotbox stuffers coercers of negro voters are allowed to go free vigorokus r Goebel has no parallel in criminal history in the State and while this 11IS true the Republicans as tv par ty assert thaRbese trials are par tiauis m start to finish but on Republicstom party is dragging Democrats from their home for the insignificant of fence of hiring negroes to stay away from the polls while it pe mils and condones the act of Re publicans to buy them and to drive them toth e voting booths at force them to vote the Republic ticket Men who call themselves Democrats men who have whitened in the service of their party who have opposed federal interfer illsues at the polls who believe State rights are now by reason ofto madness permitting themselves support and endorse such methods that inevitably rings the death knoll of Democratic supremacy in thisthe fairest State in the South Men who accuse our party of being partisan and then support the Republicans on this ground are indeed blind to the real con c tious that confront us Indiv uals in both parties may go wro the parties may drift from the cor reef path that leads to honor and just results but should this bet case it does not follow that parti san dealings and prosecutions are a crime in one and a virtue in other Mr Beckham nor his par ty stands pledged to any act that disfranchises a single voter that demands the prosecution of a sin gle individual contrary to the laws or pledged to aid in the liberation of any violator of law State or federal He stands for law and stands for the time hdn les of Democracy and TiJs own spotless rec n of ability w ess Governor port such thisiit stands the prou Republican who would rejoice otfer the

speaking at Campbellsville last Saturday had been thoroughly adver tised and early in the forenoon the people from all sections began to ar rive in town and by 12 oclock fully two thousand unterrified Democrats were upon the streets The two prin cipal streets were paraded in the forenoon five hundred men being upon horseback in the procession besides several scores of buggies It was a thrilling sight testifying that theI Democrats of Taylorcounty were thoroughly aroused and would do their duo ty on the Sixth of November Sixteen young ladies dressed in white and ridding gray horses headed the procession followed by one young lady dressed in yellow and riding a yel low horse It was a beautiful picture the young ladies being admired by both political friend and foe for their handsome appearance The Taylor county young ladies are noted for their attractive ness but to fully appreciate how hand some they really are you mdst see them dressed in white the emblem of innocese ridlng gray horses and heading a Democratic procession The speaking was at the courthouse a stand having been erected upon the outside the building being too small to hold the crowd Local talent introduced the speak ers and in the forenoon Hon C C HcChord and Congressman Dave Smith made telling and forcible speeches In the afternoon Hon Ash G Caruth of Louisville occupied the stand for two and onehalf hours making the speech of the day He is a sound reasoner and presents his points in such a manner as to impress his hearers with the truthfulness of his assertions At the close of Mr Carruths speech Hon W P Thorne of Henry county made one of his characteristic talks to the delight of all present If there was a disturbance during the day it did not come under our observa tion For the size of the crowd it was remarkably orderly a compliment to Campbellsville and Taylor county Last year the Republicans carried Tay lor county by about 70 majority butif there is any thing in demonstration her

of the gospel was once very much disturbed by a member of his congre serI the preacher asked an officer of the church to speak to the brother and see if he could not quiet him He did so and after that he was as silent as the tomb After the service the minister asked the officer of the church what be said to the brother that caused him so suddenly to lose his fervor The officer said I asked him for

by our next 1meeting We believe that we will have the honor of enrolling more members for the Democratic tick et than any other club in the county We are glad to say that we heartily endorse both State an j National platforms We are beginning to get our eyes open as to what Republican misrule is doing and has done not only in the State but in the nation We cherish the hope and firmly believe that William Jennings Bryan will be elected to preside over the affairs of the nation and that J C W Beckham will be the chief majistrate of the State A Wo can not close this letter without saying that Civil Liberty is being proclaimed from the housetops by the Republicans and that W S Taylor the poor exile as his coworkers term him occu pies the upmost spot in their hearts Out of the mouth of

Republican press and from Mr Meiklejohn Himself the un qualified admission that the thirteenth amendment to the Constitution applies to the Sulu Islands These authorities point to the fact that this amendment declares that neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction as proof that the President could not have confirmed the slavery provision of the Bates treaty We are glad the wording of the amendment has finally forced Itself up the Republican consciousness It has been hammeredin Often enough by Democrats But now that pur Bepiib llcan contemporaries are willing to recognize the existence of the thir amendment let us ask them to a little harder The amendment docs not say that the President shall not mike a treaty recognizing slavery It says that slavery shall not exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction There are only two questions to be therefore 1 Are the Sulu Islands subject to the d jurisdiction of the United States The Republicans themselves avowt they aref 2 Does slavery exist in the Sulu Is jUnquestionably That makes the case complete The McKinley
