published the death of my beloved son William T Wilkinson It left the impression on every one that read it that hey died while drunk on wood alcoho so it becomes my painful duty to bring his name before the public once more It is a duty I owe to his loving memory to his wife and chilren and to his rela tions and many friends I want everyone that may read this to know that he did not die drunk but perfectly sober My son bought the wool alcohol Tuesday night of the election but did not know it was dangerous He re mained in town until about 12 oclock that night to hear the re turns of the election When he came home he was not drunk nor had he ever been drunk on the poisonous stuff He took some t f it on Wednesday morning but never tasted it again for his wife got it from him nor did he ever drink any thing intoxicating after Wednesday morning He told me Tuesday evening about 4 oclock that it was the first ho ever drunk but thought it was same as other alcohol The man who furnished the poison is as guilty of his mur der as the man who killed Goebel Death has called away this loved one In the lonely grave to lie Yet his soul we hope is resting lu that home beyond the sky HEARTBROKEN MOTHER The Newport Bank Defalcation Only one opinion can be given as to the German National Bank defalcation at Newport That a mere bookkeeper could steal 8201000 from an instution with a capital of only 100000 and a surplus of but 50000 could maintain racing stables bet on the elections and be active in politics shows that the managers of the bank were negligent to an astonishing degree In such a small city Browns mode of life must have been well known and the most ordinary watchfulness over the book keepers accounts should have revealed his robberies long ago That the bank examiners here deceived is not so surprising as their examinations must always be perfunctory to a certain extent The only thorough ex amination that can be made of a banks affairs is one in which each asset is looked into and the accounts of all its customers compared To do ths would take more time than a Government olllcial in charge of many bank exami nations could spare unless he had reason for suspicion But that the cash far and other executive officers of the bank should have passed unnoticed the discrepancies that must have appeared in Browus accounts Is preposterous especially as he was absent for long periods of time In the last resort in banks as in al the affairs of life reliance must be placed lnamanshonesty Unless men sometopportunities fo theft and plunder However in posi tions of trust the honesty of men cannot be accepted without the ordinary safeguards that prudence suggests A bank oilicer who Byes beyond his in come to the extent that Brown did has forfeited the right to be trusted He should have been required to leave the bankeven if his accounts had been all right as any prudent banker would say No well managed institution it is hard to think would have permitted such thefts without discovery long agoBad management Is responsible for the extent to which this defalcation went though good management might not have it altogether CourierJhirnal Charles

James the outlaw and mother of Jesse James Jr died at her home in this city this morning In January of this ear Mrs James was attacked by the grip Complications developed and she had been confined to

James would never talk to any one of the days when her hus band was an outlaw with a price on his head For years after she married she was kebt moving around over the country always under an assumed name her true name being hidden even from the children and living in constant dread and anxiety while her husband was away on maruding expeditions While James was pursued as an outlaw be andhls wife and children lived in this city under assumed names Those days were full of sore trials for the wife but Mrs Samuels says she never complained It is well known that Jesse James had a strong affec lion for his wife and children and she had a strong influence over him Pea pIe who were close to the family In those days say that she tried to persuade her husband to abandon his rov Ingand robbing and go away with his family to some remote part of the country or toa foreign country and live a new JJfe under a new name This the bandit determined to do as soon as be could make onemore big stakeAt It last in the spring of 1SS1 came to Mrs James the day and the tragedy that she long expected and dreaded Her sort who remembers it distinctly tells of it as follows The morning my father was killed we had just finished breakfast I heard from the front room the loud roar of a shot My mother rushed in and screamed I ran in after her and saw my father dead upon the floor and my mother was down upon her knees by his sideband wascrying bitterly It Mrs James was a member of the Methodist Church She was a consistent Christian woman When she came to this city to live she joined aMetho gist church and kept up her member ship to the day of her death She sent her boy and girl regularly to Sunday schoolIt Mrs James who prevented her boy Jesse James Jr from going upon the stage and she tried to keep him trom posing as the son of a bandit She refused large offers from publish ers of sensational hooks for a life of Jesse James Once when a represent tative of a rich company of theatrics managers came to her to try to per suade her to consent that her boy gas o the stage as the hero in a border drama she refused 1She sent her children to school Her son Jesse went to school till he was old

is because the average boy doesnt pay any attention You cant depend on him You employ a boy who looks as if he was bright enough You send him out to do a lot of errands He seems to hear what you told him but as a matter of fact he doesnt Half the things you tell him to do he forgets and a lot of the rest he gets wrong For a day after he gets through his errands you have complaints coming in from people who gets bundles that they didnt order and who dint get the things they did order Others are kicking because they failed to get or ders filled with either the things they ordered or with the things they didnt You get out of patience and turn the boys off Probably the second boy is no better than the first and he loses his job After you have about concluded that all boys are alike and that the whole lot are no account you strike a boy who pays attention When you tell him to do a thing he does it without any hesitation or foolishness Every errand is performed punctually and without a mistake That boy is like a jew elof great price You will pay him the ordinary boys wages before you let him go In ten years he is either a partner in the business or else he is at head of an establishment of his own or at the bead of some great enterprise He is a power in the land and a man the world dont want to do wIth- out while the boys who didnt pay attention are making bare living and have hard work to do that They had as good a chance in the world as the successful man had but they lost the chance because they didnt pay attention On the Mount of Olives The Marchioness of Bute is on her way to the Holy Land with the strangest and saddest burden ever carried by a British widow The Marquis of Bute who died a week a ago gave orders that his should be taken from his body carried to the Holy Land and buried on the Mount of Olives the scene of the Agony in the Garden outside Jerusalem In accordance with this command the Marquiss heart was cut from his body twelve hours after his death It was carefully embalmed and then placed in a heartshaped glass vase This again was placed in a beautiful heartshaped silver case and this in urn was inclosed in a heavy heart easelIlls widow accompanied by her old est son and the Abbe Chauveault ill eof family chaplain have started with the heart to Palestine and will there bury it with a simple service upon the site which after that of the Crucifixion is the most sacred in the world The heart of the Marquisls eldest son who died as a boy was prepared in the same way and it will be laid to rest together with that of his father The Mount of Olives is a little hill lying to the east of Jerusalem On Ills situated the Garden of Geth scmanc the scene of the Agony of the Savior Here it was tbat He uttered the words 0 my

in the Supreme Court of the United States tudaywhlch may knock every prop that upholds the Presi dents Porto Rican policy It strikes at the legality of the fifteen per cent levied by the existing tariff upon products from that island and seeks to affirm the doctrine that Porto Rico is by cession and the act of Congress which has legislated for it an integral part of the United States In every case affecting Porto Rico so far brought the courts have avoided an opinion upon the essential question involved but lawyers of nigh standing believe that in the present action the vital question cannot be set aside and an opinion handed down on a collateral issue If the opinion of the court is that the government cannot levy customs duties against Porto Rico the court will uphold the doctrine that the constitution follows the Hag and will force a radical change of policy not only in Porto Rico but in the Philippines The case in point is that of John II Goetze Co importers of New York who were compelled to pay duties on goods imported from the island The duties were paid under protest and suit brought to recover It is admitted that the government is fearful of the result of the suit before the Supreme Court and no effort will be spared to postpone a conclusion to as late a day as possible The case is ou todays calendar butI well toward the bottom of the list ItIwould hardly be reached in the ordina sayt dayIIt is understood that the Attorney General will move to postpone the case until January 7 atwhicb time a some what similar question has been assign ed for hearing Ou the theory that all these questions can be argued best at the same time the court will it is be lieved grant the motion for a post ponement That will carry the caseI along until after Congress has been in session a month by which timff there may be some crystallization of its poll icy with respect to the new possessions the United States There is a possibility that free trad maybe established between the United States and Porto Rico without the In tervention of the court and to this enC1J cveryenergyofthcadministratfonttilbe I ble to importers In the Porto Rican case will force a reversal of the admin- Istrations policy in the Philippines The Foraker act which imposed a duty of 15 per cent of the existing rates against Porto Rico provides the when the legislative assembly of Pert Rico shall have put into operation a system of local taxation for the support of the Porto Rican government and the President has been otlictall Informedof the fact the President shall direct by proclamation that all duties shall cease as between the 1 5 land and the United States In no event are duties to be levied longer than March 1 1002 It is the intention of the administra Lion to hasten the

TheolofjeaJ Seminary and cis deposed b trustees Thegreatmajoritywulr aptilkdo not kdmire hitJWtcaingfi I t t t Since the National defeat of the Democratic party has suggested to the minds of some who were once Democrats reorganization of the party and since these reorganize tionists have for the last few years deserted in every trying contest ware e ofthe opinion that their sincerity in this matter would stand the test of one political ba tIe if by such an act there would be evidence to believe the Demo arctic party would win It is not reorganization that is needed but it is fidelity to Democratic printi pIes and an unflinching support of its nominees The leaders in th party are not so blind as to be le into a reconstruction of the party by a few disgruntled political sore heads and should some of them be induced to compromise with such a method the great body of th party will treat them as it has those who have deserted in the past The party needs no change in its organization it needs no ad vice from those who deserted on the great issues It is better to right and lose than to be wrong and win and millions of Demo icrate would condemn an alliance with trusts or a secret marriages with some European power should such an effort be made As for we had rather contend for correct and just methods for truth and justice for Democratic principles as they have descended from Jefferson Jackson and other illustri ous statesmen and go down in de feat than to see our party mort gaged to the money powers its principles bartered for official stations We had rather be a private in the ranks of defeated Democra cy untarnished by the acts of po litical pirates than to be a general in a victory won by deceit and the subordination of principles W believe in the old adage truth i mighty and will prevail and when the reorganization cry has spent its force let Democrats see and know that none but true Democrats are entrusted with directing its course and working out its destiny The Washington Times comments on Dr W Godfrey Hunt er as a bureau of publicity and promotion for himself as follows We are afraid that Dr W God Minh is a poser He left his post and traveled nIl the

to the cause Such a degree of devotion to ones political principles a t Government expense makes the finest kind of advertising and ought to be rewarded wit a firstclass European mission But economically speaking it is a thing not to be commended With the 1200 or 1500 it cost for Minister Hunter to make the roun trip not less than fifty good Re publican votes could have been imported from Ohio or Indiana and if the election had really been close think what a world of good they might have accomplished It is now claimed by the National Republican campaign managers that their corruption was fund stolen in this State by the men entrusted to use it in the interest of the G O P They assign this as reason for not carrying this State This is a grave charge made by outside Republicans against the honesty and dignity of Kentucky Republicans whose sole cry for the last few years in this State have been that they want every thing done fair and square and judging from their clamor for fairness it would seem that theyJ wanted to shy the golden rulethat they were on their way to atbetter laud Its surprising thatI they would steal when a great con test was on but this allegation ISI

Way The same blood flowed in their veins their earlY training had been the same One loved dress society amusements herself anawas utterly selfish the had no admiration beyond the gratification of her own de- sIres The other loved humanity Andt strangely the sister Inwhose heart there Is every noble impulse wholly es to make the lot of mankind happier t who aids the needy nurses the sickt and by her loving tenderness for children has gained the gratitude of thousands in appearance determination and willpower is most like her father whose lifework was the amass ing of a great fortune itseems incredible that Anna Gould and Helen Gould can be sisters members in one family Helen Gould still holds her place in the affection of the people Anna Gould bought a title She married a popinjay Count Bo- De ni Castellane whose only fortune was a past and an old name They had an income of 3000000 francs yearly That is nearly 82000 a day or 600000 a year Few men earn 000000 in a life time and it fell into the hands of a man who never earned a penny He became moneymad He reveled in American dollars 27o scheme was too extravagant no folly too great for him There were scandals and scandals and Paris stood amazed Withal the Castellanes were beggars Count Bonii he of many words and bloodless duels came to ttilscoun try and demanded more Yet in four years he has burned up 23000000 francs of his wifes fortune Now the wife the troubled woman who bartered her fortune for a name has invoked the law and the stream of gold that has lowed across France is to be checked It is always easy to be sorry for a woman but Anna Gould Countess De Castellane has reaped as she sowed Cincinnati Post A Bloody HistoryTThere is a small spot of ground abo a quarter of a mile south of Bloo fleld on the bank of Simpson creek that has somewhat of a bloody history attached to it because of its being the place where two young Confedera soldiers named Hamilton and Berry were brought from the military prison at Louisville and shot to death during the war by order of Gen John M mer the late unlamented goldbu- candidate for President who had suo porseded Burbridge the bloody butch or in retaliation for the death of John II Jones a Union man who was kille by guerillas at his home where Mr Dr Hughes now resides Major af terwards Colonel Ben S Bristow and the Secretary of the Treasury and erAPresident Grant commanded the squad of soldiers who did the shootin It Issald by those who witnessed tragedy that the youngest soldier mere boy begged them piteously nos to shoothim in the face After the smoke had cleared away the eldest was found riddled with bullets and the young soldier was writhing in agony Then the bloody Major Bristow walled up to his unfortunate victim an coolly fired five pistolshots into his face They were left where they ha been murdered orsthe citizens bury Their remains were removed a residence in Bloomfield Col Isaac Stone an ardentSouthern man boughtg two handsome coffins and had the two Southern heroes laid away in the litt city of the dead at Bloomfield It said that the bloodstains ran be seett on the floor of that house today It is said that the

the germ of a royalist partyIMeantime in Paris a nest of so called nobles husbands of Ameri can heiresses are spending the money of their wives in royalist propaganda One Parisian nobleman has summoned up courage enough to kill his wife because eh would not give him money I seems that he was though a Count in hard lines before he married but lived in clover so long as his wife furnished him with money When she ceased to endure his bad behavior he not only killed her but tried to blacken her character Thus it would appear that American heiresses are not the only victims of these noblemen Meantime it is announced the a county girl in Indiana is going to marry a Russian Count who been courting her ever since 189 This Count is said to be rolling in wealth He has certainly proved himself laggard in love but he has afforded ample time for in quiries to be made as to his financial condition Still in view o the fact that he fell in love at fire sight in 1893 and is not to be married till May 1901 this Count will bear watchingsIt is felt as a hardship by many ofour rich men that while they have a great deal more mone than European nobles they hay not the titles for their daughters at great expense and the has bands go abroad to spend the money in riotous living That is not the worst of it in most cases There are no men in the true accompanying these title1whey are mostly broken
