Wednesday by a copious rainfall which lasted 12 hours and since then there has been gentle showers every day imparting new life to the people as well as the thirsty vegetation The late corn crop is greatly benefi tted and the cotton crop in this section is assur ed As predicted in my last communication the calamity howlers are howling ball worm with a II their strength and might but in the howl there is only sound and nothing more The rain extended from Bonbam to Texarkana and from Red river to Cooper Many prayers o f thanksgiving have been offered from the various congregations throughout the rain sec lion for the great blessing God in his infinite goodness and mercy has sent upon the people The cotton market is steady with middling at nine cents Many bets have been offered that the fleecy staple will go to fifteen cents but there arc no takers Corn has clined and the local markets are dullc at cents Mules are higher than ev er before and the market is active The following prices for spans were paid in Paris last week One span 8500 three spans 400 each and several spans of medium sized mules sold for 8250 per span The assessment of Lamar county this year will nearly reach the sixteen million dollar mark the highest of any county in North Texas except Dallas county The third regiment of state guards held its annual encampment at Camp Mabay near Austin last week The Scott rifles of this place is the crack companyof the regiment and was high ly commended by adjutant General Tom Scurry Nearly all the members of the company served in the Third Texas Infantry Volunteers during the service on the Cuban coast While at Camp WikoiT Montank Point N In 1803 they were complimented on their soldierly conduct by Gen Joseph Wheeler who was in command of the first Baptist church trouble which dates back t o 1891 has at last been adjusted and once more harmony exists between the two factions known as the fortunites and minority The church building a beau tiful edifice built at a cost of 40000 was sold and was bought by the minority in 1896 for 810000 but the Fortu nites refused to take a note of five thousand dollars against themselves held by the Minority in part pay ment and the case was carried to the courts In the trial which followed the Minority was defeated and al tboughthe court recognized them as true Baptists and the Fortunites as not adherants of the Baptist faith lt deprived them of the right to canI themselves as a body the First Baptist church of Paris The case was carried to the supreme court and it sustained the judgment of the lower court in 1900 Some time ago the trustees of the building advertised the handsome edifice for sale aud notwithstanding the fact that the Minority now called the Missionary Baptist church bad purchased a lot and and raised the necessary funds to build a neat church they entered into nego tlatiqns with the trustees and effected an agreement whereby for the sum of 10000 they came into possession of buildingrGreen throngYh been brought about between th two factions Dr R H Faught of this county who has made several trips to Greer county Okla and spent much timei there says it is a beautiful country but when that fs eaid all is saidI The land is very fair he says but notb ing extra and the water to be obtained by digging or boring is generally Gyp water and not tit for use Many of Lamar county farmers buslI DrIhaving spent many years there To a person who knows absolutely nothing of the Western lands except what is told him by the anxious real estate agent or business man it is a land of milk and honey but when he invests he soon learns that it is a land of Gyp water drouths and hard times Your correspondent has been all over the Western country to Mexico and knows whereof he speaks A man with Ii Jiniiled means should HIlt locale lurid er West than Vernon Tex which Is Greer countys best market and it not the intention of your correspond en to advise them to go that far Th public roads are crowded with people returning from that drouth stricken country and all tell the same story how they were advised to selltbeir homes and investin lands in Greer and adjoining counties and now they are returning to their former homes to rent land to live on This is of yearly occurrence and should bea warning to others to stay away from that coo n try which is only fit for the long horn cattle to breathe on There are how ever exceptions and some few are making money there but they are real estate men and stockmen Greer county is a fine country for wheat if rain could be had or water sufficient for irritation could be obtained but this is not possible only in places with miles between No man can judge a country intelligently until he has llve in it for some time These people who run into avow country spend a week or two then chase home and advise ev ry body to go there do a very great wrong There are two classes of people who come West that it will pay to watch One man comes to Texas fo instance He goes to work as soon as he gets here sticks to it and makes money Then he writes all his friends that Texas is the place for them The other man instead of sticking to his job lays off all the time he can and lies on his friends to get a better job for him and finally throws up the sponge and hits the road for homee where he spreads all kinds of lies about his acquaintances as well as the country and advises every body to stay away from Texas We dont need any such cattle here They should return to the place they call Paradise and joy themselves while they can for it is the only Paradise they will ever see- The advice to all contemplating going West isooooc before you leap or in other words find out the condition of things and know just what you can do for yourself Dont depend on what others tell you altogether if you do you will go broke Some of the finest country and the richest lands your correspondent ever saw was on the frontiers of Texas Yet it only rains there once every leap year so what would It profit a man to invest in and move to lands in that country Some will say the lands may prove valuable sometime True enough but it will be long after the youngest generation have grown old and are in their graves and perhaps not then There is very little doubt but that the Populists of Texas will make an attempt to get together next year and nominate a State ticket and there will be no lack of candidates constructed of Republican and Democratic bol ters but as usual there will be a great dearth of voters From a Populistic view the campaign will be a warm one the party whittling up a car load otdrygoodsboxesandsqulrtingenougbattle h a forty acre field This is Populism in all it greatness but the small days have come the saddest of its existence JMS Sunn brook May be Sold Lexington Ky July The Standard Oil Company is making an attempt to enter the Wayne county oil fields as anoperator andto obtain control of theI Sunnybrook

to first place as worldpower would have es tablisbed a Federal monarchy in place of the present Republic if his will had prevailed at the time of this Goverr mnts foundation Hamilton was infatuated with every thing English He wac one ot the first of the board of American Anglomani acs now so overwhelmingly in evidene in the Republican party He had no use for any but a rich man and never fur a moment subscribed to the American idea of popular government as urged by Jefferson and eulogized by Lincoln The American Constitution under the terms of which popular gov ernm eat was made possible was not congenial to him He was not in sym dpath with the American creed of liberty and equal rights This man who believed and rlcclar cd the British Government of his day to be the best Government known to man the Republican party is now eulogizing as having held the ofrIovernmentand of national policy It is natural however that McKin leyism should worship Alexander Hamilton Latterday federalism stands for exactly what Hamilton rep resented sevility to England government of the common people by a privileged class the centralization ot pow in the hands of the President tbe weakening of the States a big standing army the monarchical in home and foreign politics Hamilton would have been the willing tool of the trusts today just as is McKinley He would have believed in perpetuating the trust dominance in our governmental affairs just as dues Mark Hanna He would have been a ruthless Imperialist just as are all the modern Republican bosses The American people ar j the worlds greatest nation today because they have held to Jefferson teachings they would be living under a monarchy today if Hamilton had prevailed over Jefferson They do not crave flamil tonism It is good for the country that McKinleyism is coming out into the open in testifying to its faith in Hamiltons bogus Americanism The people will know just how todeal with the party of Hamilton StLouis Re public

McOAFFREE Coroner f LEONARD FLETCHER Superintendent JOHN W FLOWERS TILL PRIMARY The struggle for the Democratic nominations for county offices came to a close last Saturday af r ternoon and we take pleasure in placing the ticket at the head of of our editorial columns as it will appear on the ballots in Novem ber A light vote was polled in several of the precincts but fl the entire vote was large be ing more than C5 per cent of the Democratic strength It was a good humored canvass between the contestantsmany Democrats couldnt decide between those who sought the nominations The ticket is a strong one and had the defeated candidates been selected it would have been strong There was no way to prevent our party from securing oneof the best set of Democrats to make the fight in November that has ever been plac ed in the field for strong men op posed each other for the honor Throughout the canvass brotherly love prevailed so far as we were able to know and since the ticket has been made all Democrats will join in and do all they can for its election in November Let us an- do our part and our ticket will win beyond a doubt According to an agreement said Stohave been made between the Presidentj Collector Sapp and cer as p Committee and sever his con with local polics in the of iuiaville Lcan 1 i r ellf It seems that the Sampson and Schley controversity will never down and until Schley has been properly credited with the great victory at Santiago it should not be hushed Put the boquet where it rightfully belongs give credit to whom credit is duo and then and not till then will the great bulk of Americans acquiesce It is said that J Pierpont Mor gan has sent a telegram to the Ex ecutive Boardof the Amalgamated Association refusing to recede from his position as outlined in the re cent New York conference and that the labor leaders will not ac cept the terms of peace offered but will make preparation to con tinue the strike with renewed force Census statistics for Kentucky show the total population of the Commonwealth to be 2147174 of which 1090227 are males and 1056947 are females The for eign born population is 50249and the total white population is 1862809 The colored population is 284865 of which 284706 are negroes seventyseven Chinese and 102 Indians John E Byers of Todd county Commonwealths Attorney of the Seventh Circuit Court district and Walter Forgy also of Tedd coun ty are candidates for the judge ship made vacant by the death of Judge Goodnight The name of Mr Byers has been presented as a compromise between Samuel R Crewdaon and W P Sandidge who have been considered the lead ing candidates We tender our thanks to Hon C C McChord Chairman of Rail road Commission for their re port of 1900 It is a neat book of more than 300 pages and contains much valuable information It shows that our Commissioners are doing a good work Mr McOhord is doing a work that will redound to his good in the future for devo tion to duty is admired by all Predictions do not always prove true but here is what Senator Blackburn says of the political sit uation in this State The polit ical situation in Kentucky could not be brighter for the Democrats We will carry the State by at least thirty thousand and have a major ity in the Legislature of at least twentyfive The Senator may have stuck his meg a little too high but the majorities will be sufficient We have been noticing favora ble mention of Miss Mildred Par year daughter of Hon R E Par year of Campbellsville who is a candidate for Enrolling Clerk of the Senate She is a young lady wellsuited for the position and her captivating manners will certainly make her formidable in the race Besides the influence of her father who is in the Senate a number of other prominent Sena preferenceIcontest Benevolent associatiations seem to be a little on the decline in the Philippines for in several communities where civil government had been instituted the troubles have been so great as to place said communities under Martial law It will be a long time if it should ever come till the United States can withdraw her army from the land of Aguinaldo The Republican party may cry peace but there is no peace It may point out the beauties of forcing those people to swallow American rule but an ugly face will con tinue to bob up It was a bad deal to levy a war that has cost many precious lives and drawn so heavily upon our treasury It will take time and long tune to adjust the differences between the conquor and the conqured It will recoil on the party who has been e party to the deAL k 2 LIBERTY KENTUCKY Wilkinson Secretary retaini ACARD To the Dem Voters of Adair county About the first of July at the so licitation of my friends I conclud ed to enter the race for the Demo cratic nomination for County At torney After becoming a candi date I found that my opponent had already a very strong organization behind him and had secured the pledges of a great many Democrats to support him before they knew that I was a candidate Yet Iwas still encouraged with promises of support and believed I could win I made an honorable fight for the nomination made no charges against my opponent and only sought the nomination upon my own merits The verdict of the primary was decissive and Mr Garnett is the nominee of the par ty for County Attorney To him I promise my earnest and active support to secure his election in November To my friends who stood so loyally to me and voted for me I extend my earnest and sincere thanks GORDON MONTGOMERY August 5th 1901 The President is actually dis gusted with the Republican fight in this State over the Collector ship Sapp and antiSapp dele gates have been bothering him for several months and it IS highly probable that he will take the Sapp out of the trouble Sapp methods in politics are so rotten and repulsive to good honest Re publicans in the city that they will not bow the knee to the boss hence a Democratic victory is in evitable According to the July report of State Commissioner of Agriculture Nall the crops in Kentucky have been seriously affected by the drouth Corn and tobacco have suffered severely while the potato crop in many sections of the State hae been ruined Since July 1 corn has fallen off 30 points in condition tobacco 23 points and hemp 28 points while only 79 per cent of an average wheat crop was harvested Editor Knott of the Louisviile Post has found all is not gold that glitters His alliance with the Civil Liberty crowd his denunciations of Democratic frauds Gobelism and his incessant appeals for Democrats to join the purifying party were badly wreck ed by the most flagrant and outrageous frauds ever perpetrated and it was purely Republican Mr Knott should cease his com mentations against Democratic frauds for he has been crying against a molehill while he dwells in the rugged cliffs of a mountain Mr John Eubank was nominat ed by the Democrats last Satur day for Magistrate in the two Columbia districts and Mr A B Cox for Constable They are both good men and will receive the full vote of the party Tillmau says that MeLaurin did it himself and has no one else to blame Georgia can look over the line and watch the proceedings The Tennesse Republicans are bidding for the Prohibition vote of that State and if they secure it they will get on a big drunk over their victory Watch and see if this is correct The Republicans of this county will now devise ways and means to ward off the troubles that a strong and aggressive Democratic ticket will give them but it is a fight against hope The Republican party in Lou isville is a Sappy combine but it seems to be doing a good work IOnr troubles our internal vexations have passed and left the sun shine of victory for

this place It was not large then It consisted ofn government town site laid oil in a field of the finest corn you ever saw grow ears as 1longas a Kentucky mules ear surrounded by a barbed wire fence OH the outside of the fence was the Frisco line station and sec t tionhouse That was the town at that stage of the game At this writing it has a population of 1000 people and is rapidly growing What makes the town is the richcountry that surrounds it The land is the finest in the Creek nation It raises corn cotton wheat oats kapper corn potatoes Irish and sweet fruits and ber ries of all kinds Tho land is a deep black gumbo soil and is very quick in maturing seeds and creating good sturdy plants thereby making good crops There is no place in the country where better opportunities can beI

the passage of an act legalizing primary elections in that State He gives as his reason which is a most excellent one that tho present system of loose primaries affords great opportuni ties for the most flagrant corrup tion and is the case in many countus a nomination being equivolent to an election and fre quently it is the case that most flagrant frauds tire practiced with out fear molestation

this many Japanese have of late years become expert musicians and charming vocalists Again the Tariff There is good reason for Republicans- to fear the ultimate effect of the duction that has been made by the Wool Trust In its price for all products coming under its control The reduc teens range from 10 to 25 per cent enough to bring any competition to terms As this is said to be the real reason of the towered prices the necessity of a tariff on wool becomes appar to none but those interested in the trustThis is an object lesson in uptodate tariff manipulation that will not miss effect with the people Is the wool n goods industry to be turned over irely to the managers of one trust Arc they to stifle all competition and take all the profits that should be di vided with the consumer It will hp hard to define the exact Irnefit that any raiser of sheep may Msiure rpfin a tariff that permits one itniminTcial interest to raise and lower raw wiiol without any reference to the supply and demand of the market He will be as completely at the mercy of trust as the consumer The woolen industry of the United States is not on a firm foundation when such an internal warfare can be waged The actual worth of the wool ears no ure under the present ar rangement The exigencies of trust manipulation are the highest consider atn Protected by the tariff there- practically no recourse for either con timer or producer Republican managers will not tall to see the prac tical result of this object lesson Tariff agitation will not down TheI rites now levied arc wrong both in theory and
