circles in this ctnintry is lying dangerously ill at his home in Louisville The Senatorial fight will soon be in full bloom and we trust that it will be short and satisfactory to the people of the State The Legislature of old Kentucky- is Democratic and mighty lucky It will redistrict the State fro too Big Sandy to the Purchase Kentucky Legislature met yes- ballotterday It is thought that ing

appeal his case Admiral Schley will be hand somely entertained in Louisville on January 29th and 80th The Admiral will bo the guest of honor at the Board of trade dinner and will be entertained at night by the Knights Templar We trust that the Legislature will provide steps to secure the abolition of this hide and seek Australian voting system The people are tired of it and we believe would gladly return to the good old way if the chance was tendered Early in the present session of the Legislature Senator George F Farris of Garrard county will introduce a measure amending the Constitution and going back to the old way of voting We believe the people of Kentucky would vote to amend by a very large majoiity The Burksville Herald should havo returned thanks to the Adair County News fir its leading edito vial last weak but we cheerfully excuse the editor for the oversight In fact it does us good to help our f neighbor for the rctnon that a r r great many copies of the News go to Burksville and at various other points in Cumberland count Hon John K Hendrick who represented the First district in Congress last sessionhas an nounced for the Democratic nomination for Governor At an early day he will go over the State It will be a long time until a conven tion is called and iu the meantime the woods will swarm with candi dates The Courier Journal of last Thursday published a good picture of Hon G A Dohoney the Democratic Representative from Wash = ington county His majority wasI 401 the largest ever given any Democrat in the county for office Mr Dohoneys popularity is due to his early associations He was born and grew to manhood within two miles of Columbia All eyes are nqw turned to Frankfort Tho race for United States Senator is on and the poli

will cripple and kill more country publications than any one act that was within his power to commit He denies to publishers second class postage rate to any subscriber not paid in advance This ruling if enforced will knock out many local publishers for they can not pay firntclass rate and furnish their publications at pres ent low prices If they cut off- f every subscriber when his time is up it forces the publisher to a heavy expense of keeping up his list It will beyond doubt reduce the circulation of all local country papers impair their worth to advertisers and bring such small receipts as to cause suspension We can not see any justice in such ruling We fail to see any good that will come to the country or Government b y placing such shackles on country publishers Why should the Government in terfere with the credit system be tween individuals j why not deny publicutionsl abolished n clean sweep could be made the mail bags reduced in size the weight taken from the back of mules and horses in the country districts This ruling will meet with a vigorous protest and Mr Madden should be retired The abolition of the credit system would probably result m good to the publisher could it be brought about by degrees or if it would re conmditions throughout the country but to spring into existence by the decree of one individual taking the people by surprise it will re pubfp ing religious and farm journals will not be affected because they are already on a cash basis and besides their papers are sent out for a mere song and their advertisers foot the bill A local pub lisher must get a part of his living out of the price of his paper be cause his advertising patronage is small Our Congressman should make an effort to have this ruling set aside They should use all honorable means to destroy such arbitrary and discriminating at temps to wreck or cripple 75 per cent of the publications in the country Subscribers to the News come on with the cash It will be better for you and better for Wa need it we want it we must have it regardless of the above mentioned ruling In an issue of tho CourierJour nal of last week quite a breezy ar ticle appeared front Mr Flanagan concerning the oil field of Wayne county The writer devoted con siderable space in pointing out phenomenas in the formation and productions Our acquaintance with the operations in that coun ty is limited but extensive enough to say that the CourierJournal correspondent was evidently writ ing at long range He WM incor rect in distance in productions and operations and the only phe nomena of the whole affair was his article No man ought to write a history of business opera tions in any section without giv ing full and complete facts The man who writes for the Courier Journal should familiarize him selfwith the developmets and pro ductions of Wayne county and then he would not report phenom enas There is probably some va riations in the formations from which oil is found in Wayne coun ty j some wells have gushed and settled down to small productions but others are still holding up to the profit and satisfaction of all parties interested The variations in Wayne as we are informed are common to other oil fields of undisputed value They do not oven approximate phenomenas and we consider such reports damaging to the development of an industry of inestimable worth to our State and particularly to that section Just think of the scramble in the Republican party of this State for the empty honor of a caucus nomination for United States Sen ator Deboe Boreing and Brad ley

paves the way for the gradualab olition of slavery in Germany East of Africa and in view of the fact that other colonizing powers have heretofore taken similar steps Jthere is absolute safety in the pre Idiction that it will not be many 1 years before slavery is wholly un Jknown in Africa Under tho terms of the decree recently issued by the Gorman I government the slave is given the right to purchase his freedom from the master while the master is required to give the slave one third of his time in which to ac quiro his means for purchasing his freedom and in cases of sick ness and old age the master is to care for the sluvo If this plan is carried out slavery will ba com pletely eliminated from German East Africa within less than twen ty years With slavery wiped out of Af rca there

of their reqturments for a number of years Since the organ izition of the United States Steel corporation there has been considerable talk about the trust buying the property of tho outside mines the production of which is very largely sold to the independent furnace men In some cases options were secured on a number of large mines This scared the furnace opera torsthat had no mining property and as there were few good mines available that could be purchased ufolees prices that would put a crimp in the bank roll of tho trust wera paid they decided to do the next best thing This was to ar range for the supply of ore that would assure them that they would be able to operate their plants for a number of years- Considerable business along that line was closed up during the past two weeks and at least a half doz en plants have purchased ore that will very largely take care of their requirements during the next ten yearsThe Lackawanna Iron and Steel Company of BuTTilo whichwill be a big producer next year was one of the concerns that made such an arrangement The Youngstown Iron Sheet and Tube compn uy has also closed for a supply of ore for ten yenrs The names of the other firms that
