condensed Brlellu a Pays tribute to the character of the late President McKinley Discusses anarchy at length denies that it is a product ofUso cial discontent and recommends vigorous action for its suppression Defends concentration of wealth and trust formations but ad mits necessity for stringent Government supervision and calls for publicity as the first step Takes ground against any general tariff change but recommends reciprosity when American interests will not be endangered by reduc doll of tariff duties V Indorses subsidies to promote the growth of the merchant marine I Recommends amendments to Interstate Commercelaw with a view to increasing the powers of the commission Favors reenactment of Chinese exclusion law and advises measures looking to the protection of American labor Warmly recommends reclamation of arid lands of the Weafc and preservation of forests and game V Vigorously calls for army reforms and additions to the navy 5 Monroe Doctrine reiterated An Inevitable lesson With tbeconvening of Congress yes erday the American people will de mand an earnest consideration of the allied evils of trustism and the high protective tariff which will have for material results a needed and effective restriction of the trusts and a revision of the tariff in the interests of Ameri can consumers unmlstakajble issues Even Republican scntimentln the Northwestern States demands tar iff revision There promises to be a strong Republican minority movement in favor of a lighteningof the tariff tax on the people At the same time the attempted consolidation of the great railway systems of the Northwest gives a tremendous additional vitality to the issue of trust regulation The truth is made apparent that the powers of the monopolistic trusts must be restric ted for the public safety These two issues are unquestionably the most pressing to come before the present Congress yet there is every likelihood that no definite action will be taken on them or even that the proper consideration and debate will be allowed The Republican majoritt in the Senate and House of Represen tatives despite the fact of Republican antitariff and antitrust sentiment in the Northwest will do exactly what threat monopoly interests dictate Tt monopolies will command hands offHue problems of trust regulation and tariff revision That they have already done so indeed is apparent in the character of the news now coming from the national capital About the best that can be hoped for from the session of Congress now about to begin is a Republican mani est iJon of hostility tehtthe people on the tariff and trust piles which wlir intensify public sentimant againstJLhe party of monopoly and subsidy privi gas In the Congressional campaign Z and the Presidential campaign pf ltthese issues should be peculiar ly vital and logically paramount And for their proper settlement the Amer ican people nrujgClbok to the Democratic party This will be the teach ing of the Congressional

sometimes out of pretty raw material were paid for even at half the legal rate he would be the richest man in the country Few country editors are rich but they are more service to the communi ties

seemed proud of his horse and impressed Mr Beecher that he wanted to show him off TIe began by letting the horse goat rather an unusual speed Mr Beecher said to the driver vitscems to me that you ate driving yourhorse too fast I am afraid that he will give out before we get there The man replied You dont know that horse TIe starts fasts gets faster all the way never tires and never kicks Beecher turned to the man with a merry twinkle In his eye and said I wish your horse was a member of my church A sngfrestiqn to Farmers There are many farmers who find it difficult to occupy their entire time during the fall and winter months Why not take up the old farm and study field by field from every stand point There may perhaps be an old reservoir or pond of no special use at present welch could be converted into a valuable water supply for Irrigating purposes at little or no expense These problems caanot bo worked put without being caef ully considered The question of tie water supply oa every

fFlhe irrigation of certain field crops doting summer months r t Postal Savings Bank Again During the nex session of Congress it is more than likely that an effort will be made to secure legislation look Ing toward the adoption of the postal sating bank system in the United Stats The arguments which the friends of this proposed measure make in its be half are worthy of consideration In the first place it is claimed that the system will inspire confidence on the part of small depositors since it will have back of it the resources of the federal government and that on account of the absolute security which it offers It will prove an inccniivc to thrift In the second place it is claimed that the system can be maintained without any very great expense to the government since it is only necessary to provide for an extension in each postoflice If the system is put into effect it will receive in a large measure the pressure which is now brought to bear upon the money order department of the government and what will be saved in this direction will contribute largely toward defraying the expenses of the system proposed Most of the European counlrlss have adopted the system with good results and if it works satisfactorily abroad there reams to be no reason why it should not be put on trial at home Decides Fate of Fugitives Washington Nov 28 TbeSuprcme Court of the United States listened to argument in a case which may decide the right Of the Governor of Indiana to decline to return exGOv Taylor of Kentucky and Charles Fiuley to Ken tncky for trial The question of ex = tradition from one State to another is involved The case is that of Benja min D Greene John F Gaynor Wil liam T Gay nor and Edward F Gaynor who were indicted at Savannah Ga charged with having conspired with former Captain Carter of the United States army to defraud the Govern meat The question involved is a new one in the Supreme Court The decision is expected to lay down a rule that must be adhered to In extradition controversies between States In this case the legality of tbe in dictment is in question because as it alleges the grand jury was not drawn and Impaneled according to law It is also asserted that there are defects in the indictments which warrant the defendants in resisting extradition Kentucky lawyers arc here watching the case with keen interest and express the bcMof that the decision when It comes will be of snch character thai the Governor of Indiana can ba quired to surrender Taylor and Finley Asked President for a Match Out in the Zoologica Park the other day

an expression concerning tne tion of tbe County School Superintend ent and his board of examiners in the adoption of books to be used in our public schools for the ensuing five years In that article we made no ref erence derogatory to the good inten tions of the board or to any member of it but to the contrary credited them with good motives by openlystating we do not criticise the intentions the board in making tbe change1 Our article was an open honest disapproval of making the change in our schoolbooks which brings a heavy tax on the parents of children in this county and brings it without their consent and without their approval Not one line not one sentiment expressed in former article is retracted It is no our mission it is not our intention to complain without a cause it is not our desire to throw the weight of a straw in the pathway of honest endeavor or produce one line or a single sentiment besmirching the good name of auy man whether he be a private citizen or salaried officeholder We took the po sition that the change was not necessa ry that we could not indorse thei judgment and that it would cost th poor people of this county thousands o dollars If this is not true they should have denied the allegation in a fair and gentlemanly manner stated the changes made and produced their rea sons but instead of taking this way to extricate themselves they take the low est degrading and most contemptible method to try to cover up their blun der No reason for making the change is given save that the law authorized an adoption of books and that it mus be obeyed To skulk from the issue evade the weight of our article you published in the Spectator a vile ma licious article against the editor of this paper and then have the audacity to ask us to reproduce it in the columns of the News We are willing wurtesyrwithin our power to any gentleman who gives us fair treatment We would have willingly given space for reply in refutation of our article ha the manuscript been presented touch Jug the question at issue If as you claim our article did you an injustice then you should have sought the same avenue to have reached the same read ercbutinsteadotcominaoutlikemcwho t the question you seek to do us an in justice and choose another paper as midium accomplish tour contempt ible purpose You lay much stress on our declaration This change will cost the poor people of this county thousands of dollars It is not a mand of theirs but brought about b arduous work of book publishers not for the betterment of our children but to advance their business You say Now as to the adoption being the result of the arduous work of bcok pub Ushers is an infamous lie This the strongest and most unwarranted state ment of your tirade we give and be low we submit the circumstances in fense of our former declaration The register book in the Marcum Hotel shows the names of two representa tives of bookpublishers registered November 19th and that they wer b re two days On the 28th three more registered two stayed till Sat urday tbe third one left on Sunday Two of these men arrived abou 12 oclock Thursday and just aftc dinner one of them drove a span o horses out the Somerset road and la that afternoon returned with W H McCaffree a member of the board in his vehicle These men wets here fo the purpose of selling their books an they accomplished it Their time was devoted to this end and itwas energeti cally arid successfully employed They did not publicly proclaim their mission they did not seek public endorsement but devoted their time and energies to the parties who had the legal power adopt or rejec t No accusation was made against said agents If these agents men ofgood address and ability did not work hard and use all honorable means within the scope of thei knowledge and experience to the interest of their employers the all are failures and their success must have been an accident On thing Is certain and that is that th man who wen i to the country for one of these guardian angels was a success ful agent Another thing not doub ful and that is that the three who stayed till the mist rolled away the light of superior authors dawne- on this board and finally when th brilliancy of that light obscured th hard earnings of the poor people this county this board permits the to furnish the books or a porton o them for five years at their own prices This board claims justification by se curing an exchange price of cent of the price of the new books What profit comes in a transaction that forces our people to gi ie up good books of good authors for similar books of other authors and then pay sixty per andallowprice Unless there are gross errors existing in the books now in use or unless the ones recently adopted have broader or plainer and easier av enues to aid in the development of the mind this board has made a mistake a costly blunder one thatwill bring a heavy tax on parents who are forced to buy them Since this hoard forces a heavy expense on our people we ask mustbuybetweentheonesadopted upJourexpense fects lathe ode and the merits of the other Tell the fortheirmoneyplanation havebeen it It brings no expense to you it cost you nothing Ntw we ask you in candor to lay aside your abuse of us and meet the issue in a plain open manner Here is a column or more of space It necessary tendered for this purpose If you show justifiable rea sons for making the change your ac tion will meet the indorsement of the people if you fall in your attempt it will be considered a blunder and if you refuse to explain you will occupy an unenviable position Mark Anthony said lIWe come to bury Ceasar not to praise him Butnotso In thlscase We come to praise not bury The superior abil ity of the county Superintendent and his board of examiners is not to be questioned To refuse to indorse their actions makes the offender a malicious liar The people of this county must bowtble nfallable protectorates It seems that the people are supposed to know not what they want neither are they bookstBut for this board the wheels of aress might cease to move intelligenc decay and finally the darkness of ig norance and superstition envelop pos gentleecounfty or to ask what books you force us to buy for the good of our children Noble guardian Angels with the key of knowledge in their possession will take care of the onward march of in tellectual advancement and all the paople have to do is merely foot the bill The superiorly of the new geog raphy the people must buy will picturetIndeliblet0impression That new arithmetic nay contain heretofore unborn principles and make the way broad and clear through Fractions Boots and Num bets That new Kentucky history may possibly contain a sketch of our guar Alan Angels on missions of mercy It may show their pictures and represent them weeping over the bad and dread progIthe picture it should show will not be seen and that is a representation of a multitude of people including the widows coming in from every direc tion bringing their books in exchange fur others and then emptying their purses into the coffers of rich torpors lions This picture would not oe com outpointing to the many buyers with this inscription lilt is for their good that weordered them Our former article changerbrougbta heavy expense to parents in this county This board overlooks this fact the only accusation made and re ceding from the weight of this charge placed a false construction on our lan guage and with this for a base brands usas a malicious liar A guilty con science needs no accuser Their article is no lower than the source from whence it came The chow is no over foer complicity in the murder of Mr Goebel was arrested in

to fill the place Mr Taylor is perhaps not aware that Mr Wm Hobson present encumber is the happy owner of a commission from the PM General which does not expire for more than two years hence he cannot

decided in favor of lEe Bank of Columbia and steps will now be advanced to collect the debt The first day of Liberty circuit court was very disagreeable and only a small crowd put in an appearance The

United States holding that the Philippine Islands became American territory upon the exchanging of the peace treaty with Spain the Federal Court emphasizc the necessity for an early and definrt V settlement of the Philippine problem In the case of Porto RICO acting unj der the compelling influence of the Sd gar Trust an American Congress imposed on the people ofacountry which was already a part of this country ai tariff tax from which other sections otI the United States were free The time now seems to have goneby for the game of dealing with the insu lar possessions as foreign territory or as domestic territory according to the convcnipcce of the moment from the viewpftikit of the interested trusts AccorJIng to the Supreme Court the PhilipplBfs ceasijog to be Spanish ter ritory lustiatjf became American annotjrJgbt1fullybe the Union As an American posses siOD they are under the protection of the American Constitution That is common decency if Itis not final law Under the conditions now developed the action of Congress In the matter of Philippine legislation In the near fu ture will be studied with Intelligent Interest by the American people There is a strong trust opposition to tree trade with the Philippines Yet if the Philippines are held as at present there can be no moral right to tax Philippine exports to tb country Justhow the will of the trusts Is to be carried out In this matterthe Philip pines retained as domestic territory and yet taxed as foreign territory Is difficult to comprehend The Fifty seventh Congress however will doubtless do Us best to solve the problem to the satisfaction of the trusts St Louis Republic GoV Leslie Praises Beddmm Frankfort Ky Nov 28 Among the hundreds of letters received at the State Executive Department within the

voting and the abolish meat of the secret ballot The matter of submstting an amendment to the Constitution to this effect Is cer Legislaturetbls great attention If we remember cor rectly the Democratic party is milted to the change by a resolution adoptedat a State Convention We also understand that a great many Re publicans favor the change The NEWS was very warmly in favor of the adoption of the secret ballot upon the Idea that it would prevent bribery and would be more satisfactory to the State It has failed to accom pUsh this purpose In fact under the ballot system there has never been an election held in tIC State in which there has not been more or less charge of corruption Time and again it has been openly avowed that election of fleers have been bought and the returns falsified Bribery goes on just the same with the voter and in addition to this there is frequently wholesale frauds committed by election officers For the very reasons we originally favored the secret ballot we now favor a change back to the old system We believe the people of the State favor the change and with some of die strictions now pertaining to the ballot system added to the old law the eleo tions will be much more satisfactory to the people The Legislature will make no mistake In submitting the question to the people Elizabethtown News Mr W H Bead of Scottsville has tBWMiaced himself a candidate for DoorkeeiwrieC the next General Air setabif i Dr Coyles Theory Rev r licit P Cyle pastor of the First Presbyrerian church of Denver Colholds that the present system of morning and evening services on Sunday has had its day of usefulness and that a Rocial meeting at the church on Sunday night with a large Bible class in the afternoon and the rpg ular morning service should be substituted lie gives as his reasons for his belief that a change is necessary that no man has brains enough to prepare two ser mons a week and ought uot to be expected to and that people are already sufficiently instrncted as to their duty Mr Coyle does not hold that the need for the Gospel is less than it was but that men already know more than they orb willing to carry out and for that reason will not come to church to be told what to do and what to leave undone unless the services can be made attractive His program for Sunday is for tho regular service and sermon in the morning a large Bible class with paid teachers if necessary in the afternoon and in the even ning a gathing in which tho social element can come to tho front It is not he eays his desire to secularize Sunday but that the church should conform to the spirit of the times t1Y- aud Carriage Wagon Shop 0I have leased the R C Eubank shop and will give Carmage Wagon Wofk special attention Work done by me will be
