Friday November 23 next for tbe argument and submission of the case- In fixing that date the Chief Justice said In tbe eight years that I haveI been on the bench this is the first Commonwealth case in which such an exten tion has been requested The at torneys for the defendant it is assumed know what the record contains and there is no ground for extension further than ten days Iwill fix the 23rd

statement concerning the election The result was a surprise to me and the magnitude of the Republican victory was a surprise to our opponents- as well as to those who voted our tick et It is impossible to analyze the returns until they are more complete but speaking generally we seem to have gained in the large cities and to have lost in the smaller cities and in the country The Republicans were able to see tickets or passes for all their vot who were away from home and gave them considerable advantage We have no way of knowing at this time how much money was spent in the purchase of votes and in colonIza- tion But while these would account some of the Republican gains they could not account for the widespread increase in the Republican vote urbe prosperity argument was prob the most potent one used by th Republicans They compared presen conditions with the panic times of 189 3ly 1896 and this argument had weight with those who did not stop to consider the reasons for the change The appeal stand by the President while the war is on had a great deal of in fluence among those who did not realtize that a war against a doctrine o selfgovernment i n the Philippines islWeest platform and having done our du as we saw it we have nothing to We were defeated but are not di couraged Tho fight must go on suro that Republican policies will be repudiated by

associates in the club organization put forth their best efforts Our newspa our campaign speakers and our local organizations all did their part Ihave no fault to find and no reproaches I shall continue to take an active interest in politics as lung as I live I believe it to be the duty of citizens to do so and iu addition to my interest citizen I feel that it will require lifetime of work to repay the pout cal friends who have done so much ror me I shall not be a senatorial candidate before the Legislature which has been elected Senator Allen deserves the senatorship which goes to the Populists Mr Hitchcock and Mr W H Thompson are avowed candidates for the senatorsbip They both descreI swell of the party andI am too grateful to them for past support to stood InI their way even if I

lilt 3 titt t j1 i Lets Sin by Degrees It is not to be denied tbat the annex- atIon of Cuba by this Government or the establishment of a native govern ment under an American protectorate would be to the advantage of both people and that it therefore should be hoped for as the wisest solution of tbe problem now in course of settlement What is to be deplored however is an American application of the prInci- ple that the end Justifies the means and that In accordance with this teaching if Cuba does not consent willingly to annexation or to be protectorate she shall be annexed or protected against her will There are two considerations which forbid this course on the part of the American GovernmentThe these is of course that the Declaration of Independence de cares that no just government maybe established without the consent of the governed There is a disposition on the part of imperialists generally to bytsure we must pay some semblance of re sp ct to a once highly honored AmerI- can utterance until we shall have formally repudiated and disposed of it for all time to come The second of these considerations is we have solemnly pledged our 1ves to the granting of national Independence to Cuba if the people of that and shall prefer their own govern m This pledge is contained in our declaration of war against Spain form elated in April 1898 wherein we an nounced that Cuba was then and of independentIthis statement was largely buncombe included in our declaration of war to round it out with the necessary sentiment and sonorousness but nations at bind themselves in solemn covenants cannot thereafter plead tbe ba byact without loss of national honor Dont you remember how much we all had to say about our glorious war for humanity in 1898 So it is tbat we should po slow at least as slowly as we can In grabble Cuba Of course we will grab It determination is now top apparent t be ignored by any but tbe feeblemind esedbut lets go as leisurely about it as js

1000 on the charge of intimidating negro voters Two negroes I were also held with Thompson for the same offense This persecution is evidence of Republican hatred for Democratsit is the work ofa wellplanned method to in timidate Democrats and make them standoff in the scramble for the votes of floaters It shows the depth of infamy that the Republi can party gos in order to com pletely control the negro vote Albert Thompson had some negroes arrested and jailed for crap shoot ing and the game and arrest we- i00 just before the election thus the Federal governmentattempts to say to Democrats and the law abiding people of this State that you must not jail any of our vo terse for any offense when it won prevent them from voting Crap shooting is a crime and our laws provide a penalty for it and in this instance Mr Thompson and the two colored men doubtless did their duty Others have been in dieted tried fined heavily and im veteaslight offenses and yet the Repu lican organs of this State fail to see any evidence of partisanism these prosecutions When the 1 plainer wdoho may they allow Republicans to for coloredmen to vote pay them vote and go free and arrest Democrats for the offense of hiri them not to vote it is gross part- isanismit is discrimination of worst character it can not de feuded Republican papers are finding much pleasure in speaking of their national victory and also in ridi culing the position of the Demo cystic party and especially o leader We predict that these sheets will soon have all they c do to defend the actions of their own party While the Democratic party was defeated in its come tious and while its gifted and able leader has twice gone down does not justify the oppoiite party in pitching its slurs and speaking disparagingly of Mr Bryan The intelligent part of the people are willing to admit that he is a man whose ability courage hones and patriotism are equal to at living American and it is only blockheads who can not are him with these endowments Whether or not he shall again le our party in u National contest we are unable to say but he is not greatlKinley we presume that he is an average man in intellect with the prominent men of this age but equalrdof that he is simply a partie will work to the interest of his advanhce le le we believe that he would do so He is Preside of the United States Emperor of the

Congress obtain the necessary improvement to make Cumberland river navigable As we understand the Government has surveyed the ri er to Burnside Kentucky or even higher up and decided to male it navigable to that point The survey and decision will not be worth any thing unless it is carried to completion and if the Kentucky people from the Tennessee line to Burnside would unite in a dame on Congressman Boreing of is District to push this matter the wouldnot be too aggressive and would probably secure an appro- priatIon If our Congieasman w not work for this improvement or he is not able to induce Congress appropriate for this river then he should be retired and an fib leday and man should take his place who would do it Mr Boreing is sa be a fine piehunter for friends but he should

for winter use can do so in this way I save the largest and those that are free from bruises Lay them in the sun for a day Then line a box well with paper Lay the potatoes in care fully Keep them in a dry place until cpld weather and then put them in a room where they will not freeze The paper is a protec tion from frost I saved mine from those I dig for use I find they will keep if dug after frost
