quiet that no one but those directly inter ested knew what hid been fouud and they were unable to learn anything until yesterday when the Melhuish brothers who are superintending the drilling for the Kentucky and Tennes see Oil and Gas Company gave out the informationThe brothers stand high in the oil fields of the East as oil experts ot the first rank and their opinion goes a long way with oil men They both express themselves as thoroughly satisfied and say that when the test is applied to the well which it will be as soon as the necessary apparatus can be got on the ground the well will be found to be the best yet brought in this field So thoronghly satisfied is the Ken tucky and Tennessee Company with what they have found in this territory that the Melhuish brothers have let the

adopt ed a resolution declaring that United States Senators should be elected by the direct vote of the people In tak lug this action the legislature has acted in concert with every state leg islative body now in session It has furthermore expressed the opinion an overwhelming majority of the citizens of Kentucky regardless of politics Upon this issue public sentiment ap pears to be a unit everywhere- In Virginia North Carolina and South Carolina the plan of nominating United States Senators in regular democratic primaries has been adopt ed by the parties authorities In several other states the like end has been reached by practically the same meth odsEvery county in Kentucky should Instruct its delegates to the next dem ocratic state convention to vote for a resolution declaring for the election of United States Senators by the di rect vote of the people There is no more reason why the voters should not elect their United States Senators than that they should not have the right to choose their own congress men Glasgow Times Mason and Dixons Line Mason and Dixons line is not to be allowed to lose Its markings and to drop out of existence so far as visible signs of its historic location are concerned The famous old boundry that divided the North and South that marked the line between free and territory and that has been talked about written about argued about and fought about more than any other line ever laid out on the continent is now being surveyed and its location definitely marked The old stone posts that were set along its course after Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon marked it out In 1763 arc being reset in solid cement ba ses and ifbn posts are being substitu ted in places where the uld posts have disappeared Generations yet to come will beable to

matter with you What are you making all this fuss aboutIt Is a groundswell isic not Ground swell It Is an earthquake And what does it mean what is its significance SImpy this that he was there that he won the fight and that the other man was not and did not So much to begin with Next It afilogle Spanish ship had gut away Scbley would have been courtmartialed Nut one got away Next since others have the prizemoney Schley is entitled to the glory And finally and more than all there has seemed a conspiracy some where to cheat him even out of the glory Public opinion just rears back on its hind legs and resents this The sentiment of outrage is greatly aggra vated by the circumstance that a male strumpet carried on the payrolls of the Navy Department supported by a gyeat but degenerate Publlsblng House and apparently approved by persons in authority was permitted to black guard this noble officer and gentleman without a word of rebuke during the entire person of inquisition to which he was subjected The people en masse would rebuke these montrositlesof Administration They will have none of them They know Schley to be as each of our gaeat naval commanders from Paul Jones to Farragut has been a gentleman a hero as far as our frail humanity may compass incapable of intentional wrong a sailor and a fighter but also a humanitarian who risked his life successfully and without losing it to save the lives of his fellows Open the doors wide Ring out all the bells It is Schley of Maryland Schley of the Brooklyn Schley dantiagoCourier Sournal More Philippine Imparialism Some idea of the extent to which we have gbneln the Philippines toward the worst phases of Impeaialism may be gained from the cablegrams which say that both the civil and military authorIties over there object to the publication in the islands of the speech by Dr Scburman or the minority re port in the senate on the Philippine tarlil bill Their idea seems to beI that the Filipinos ought not to be al lowed to know that an eminent Ameri can who was president of the first commission sent to them is in favor of their ultimate independence or that a respectable minority of the American senate feels the like sentiment Spain could have done no worse than to shut up the islands to darkness and to war We can do the Filipinos how ever not nearly so much harm by such a policy of press censorship and totalI embargo of news concerning the currents ot opinion in the United States upon tbese subjects of Philippine possession and policy It is a sort of eye gouging and earlopping process to which our people have not been accus tomed and we do not believe they will approve its application tot h e Filipinos It may be true s General Wheaton says that men have been sent to prison In the islands for just such marks as have been made by President Schurman and bj the minority of the senate committee but that does not do muck credit to our Philippine ministrators nor make their policy any more palatable to Freedomloving Americans Wanted by Uncle Sam Deputy Marshal William Blades will leave this morning for Hodgenville Larue county to secure Robt W Anderson and H E Simpson wanted by Uncle Sam The men are

Journal at last sees the signs of the imperialistic tendency of the Republi can party couched behind the unjus- and humiliating reprimand of General Miles by the President Mr Watter sons editorial of February 1st styled The March of Imperialism is a mas terpiece of logic a clear note of warn Ing and a strong appeal to the friends of a true Republic to stand together and work to ward off imperialism The CourierJournal an advocate of ex- pansion bit an enemy of imperialism We have never believed that our ernment would be made better wise or richer by acquiring possessions and administering carpetbag government to a land and people so remote from our shores our form of Government and our social life and institutions as the Islanders of Asiatic seas We have never believed such expansion would result in good to the principles tha underlie a true Republic we have feared the tendency to drift the power 4 from the people and to vest it in ruler and gatling guns From the begin ning of the human race the strong has sought to subdue the weak the rich has oppressed the poor and the shrewd and cunning have cheated the simple He who has the power claims the right to rule This was exemplified when the American Colonies were forced to revolt and the spirit that actuated our forefather has been the beacon light of the worldsetting up the freest tru est governments ever Instituted by man True to the form and spirit of Government and constitution we have become a powera power not ac quired by force of arms but by a strict administration of the principles that just governments derive their power from the consent o f the governed Greed and ambition seek wealth and power and when once strongly in trenched it cost war to overthrow It is easier and wiser to check the ambi tious official or party that seeks to per vert the constitution or to usurp a power than to overthrow after acquired If Mr Wattersons conclusions of the Presidents real intentions are cor rect than Mr Roosevelt is a danger ous Executive and that part of his party who believes in a free Republic should cast him aside and repudiate his imperialistic tendencies and ef forts Mr T A Murrell who has had full and complete control of the Columbia Spectator for the past year gives place to MrW D Jones who has heretofore had experience in the same publication Mr Murrell announces that he will continue to contribute to the editorial columns but passes the business and management and the local part to Mr Jones We have no tears to shed over tho retire went of the one and the inaugura tion of the other neither will the change disturb tho patrons of the paper for the reputation it has en joyed under Mr Mnrrells management will descend and abide with Mr Jones While Mr Mur rell was our

Indiana last week It tr whenvj Taylor will be tint diiefitotor iDa KftatackyfinWrtiinjfiant ra 4 r Th rfollowing timely article we take from the SonWhdt Journal It is Democratic and it is with pleasure that we reproduce it for our readers Looking at politics from a higher plane than place and patronage Mr Bryan is right in his plea for the union of a party npon great principles It was what gave Jefferson and Jackson their power in the party and later Til den Thurman Hendricks and Cleveland It is says the Pitts burg Post what gives Mr Bryan his sway over millions of his coup trymen without scrap of office o patronoge at his disposal A party without principles he truthfully asserts can have no claim on pub ho confidence In a contest for mere spoils of office and power the Democratic party stands no chance When it is a contest fo principles in which the masses believe and are united we can al ways make an earnest and some times successful battle against detnied us our duty remains It is no dishonor to be outvoted this year when we may win next Dis grace only comes with an aban donment of principle and a shill shally or evasive declaration of our faith in principles and policies which the people have atlleart and believe in more thoroughly than they do in the prestige of power Must we abandon says Mr Bry trgovernments their just pow govtwe accept antd join in and conquest Here we get to the bedrock of Democratic faith It is the pressing issue of the hour tIna practical way it is before Con gress at this time in legislation proposed fur the Philippines bu more nearly affecting the American people for if imperialism colonialism militarism and the rejection of the Great Declaration are to become the settled policy of our government what will the Re public be worth when such scraps of monarchial or imperial policies become permanent fixtures These questions are before Congress in the consideration of the Philippine bill which will revolutionize the structure and methods of repuli can government They are present in the consideration of the tariff and with them the supremacy o of money trusts and corporations in government Here are issues on which the Democratic party i unitedon which its future rests and which must be met and decid ed So the Democratic party Mr Bryan concludes whether in or out of power is serving man kind when it stands steadfastly fo constitutional government and insists that that government that be administered according to Jef fersonian maxim equal rights all and special privileges to none Tho Advocate writing about the colored man Wood who resides i Danville and who was in Wash ington last week urging the Pres ident to give the negroes of Kentucky some pie says Is it sible that the colored brother i Kentucky is at last awakening to the realization of the fact that for lo these many years he has been but the hawer of wood and the drawer of water for the G 0 P That in the distribution of the loaves and fishes he has been per sistently forgotten and overlooked by those who whoop him up just on the eve of an election in order that thereafter they may enjoy the fruits of his voting and hold high revel at the pie counter while ho looks on unfed and hungry In deed it does look so to a man up a tree when brother Wood aud his coterie make forced marches on the capital in order to deliver a missive to the President in which they say that not one of onrnum ber holds a Presidential appoint ment except one in the consular service Whether or not the un rest and appathy can be soothed by a rough rider remains to be seena The sleet storm last week did considerable damage to Kentucky towns The loss at Pidu cahoms estimated at 250000 Business of all classes was suspen ded and the newspapers were not sued for two days In Louis yule business was ieta ddandItelephonecommunication stopped No man ever received greater honor than shown Admiral Sohley by the CityiorV duisviU lift kC 7 The trial fTim Howard for the murder of tlse Iain Governor GO bel was ctoludedEit Frankfort last week The jury was out a lit tIe over two hours and brought in a verdict fixing his punishment at confinement in the penitentiary for life Upon the first ballot the jury voted unanimously that How ard was guilty The second ballot disclosed that five were for hanging and seven for imprisonment for life The five finally came to the seven and the verdict made A motion for a new trial was made- r and overruled and the case will be taken to the Court of Appeals Howard was not the least disturb ed when the verdiot was read and in a few minutes thereafter laugh et and chatted with his friends So far as we are able to discern- r Howard has not only had one but stwo fair trials and twice convicted once to hang One thing certain James A Violet Attorney for Howard and one of the ablest law yers in the State made a master effort for his client and in his speech before the jury stated that he made no insinuations that the council for the commonwealth had done any thing wrong in the prosecution of Howard He said that there was no lawyer who believed more freely in the absolute hones ty integrity and fairness of Judge Cantrill than he that no man could have construed the law bet ter or throw more protection around Jim Howard in hie trial than the honorable court This an outspoken endorsement of the trial from Howards ablest attorney ought to silence the organs that have sought to make political capital out of one of the foulest conspiracies and murders ever per petra ted in America Twice proven guilty twice convicted- t The Philadelphia Times says the future of the country should fill every American with hope and confidence for our commercial su premaoy i secure The Cincin nati Enquirer commenting on the above sentence rightfully says This is buncombe Our country like every other country has its business ups and downs j and the selfish course of tariff oppression of our own semidependencies is not well calculated glorify us in the future We may so adjust the tariff as to have the advantage oft other countries for awhile but we cannot legislate for all the world forever The statesmen of others countries are studying the tariff as industriously as our statesmen are and the time must come for a fair distribution of advantages A Republican paper points to buildring a house not so expensive as the republican paper reports but still a good house as evidence that repubolican prosperity It may be in teresting for the republicans to know that the house is being built FirstnBattle which was published im mediately after the election of 1890 and before the republicans began to boast of prosperity Re benefitned Mr Bryan except in the sense that a physician is indebted to sickness for his income Republican policies furnish Mr Bryan texts for editorials and speeches Commoner The Republican members of the Ways and inaans Committee have decided to shelve the question of reciprocity with Cuba until they have framed a bill for the reduc tion of the war revenue tax A majority is prepared to favor a war bill practically wiping out the war tax which aggregates about

amendments one excepting from the repeal the tax on petroleum and sugar refinerie and another imposing a tax of onetenth of 1 per ceut on the gross receipts of any industrial corporation having receipts of 1000000 annually Both amendments were defeated by party votes The President last Wednesday reappointed 0 M Barnett Surveyor of Customs in Louisville thus ending a long fight made by for mer Gov Bradley in behalf of D R Collier It is a triumph for Commissioner Yerkef and further stamps him as patronage man for Kentucky Notwithstanding the appeal of Admiral Sohley was not granted he will always remain the hearts of the American people the hero of Santiago Naval rules may force an officer Uto go away back and sit down but the valor and cour age displayed by Schley will never die

sugar interests In the South and West can hardly afford to pauper Ize Cuba by retuning to make any jon cessIons regarding the proposed reluc tlon of the tariff on sugar iuiportc1 to this country from the Island As Palma said recently the Uuilcd St ttcs sill be recalcrltrant to their duty if they neglect to provide the Cubans with the means of industrial pros there oas been nothing to mar the good record in dealing with our Cuban neighbors In contradiction to the treatment accorded to Purto Ricans and the Filipinos In vari ous Instances our attitude toward the Cubans is all American pride re South and West were the first to Interest the country inthe deplora ble condition of Cuba These two sections of the country gave full sway to their sympathies for the revolutionists A larger proportion of volunteers for the war with Spain was raised in the South and West than in the North and East The chivalrous Instincts of the nation were best illustrated by such troups as the Twentieth Kansa and the Rough RIders Why should not this same chivalry be displayed in giving industrial peace to Cuba There Is no purpose to cripple the beet sugar Interests Cuba asks that the tariff be lowered enough to permit the shipment of sugar into the United States on a basis where it can compete with Porto Rican and Hawaiian Importations Areasonable reduction of the tariff will not harm the beet sugar Interest Especially is there no reason why Democrats should be so inconsistent as to favor protection for that one interest while advocating free trade for industries thot happen to be located In theNorth Cuba must be assisted Its material prosperity is no less a consideration than its political libertySt Louis Republic Cost of An Unnmerlcan War In the courseof the House debate on

enough to construct the NIcaraguan canal and to build 300 warships for the American Navy This btartllng presentation ofa plain truth will not be lost no the American people The ghastly Philippine muddle has become a very sore spot on the national body A policy of helpless indecision of infirm judgment of unwillingness to face the truth and act thereon according to American standards has placed this Government in a sorry plight The hundreds of millions of dollars that are being spent in the Phlllpi ne5 are worse than wasted They arebelngpaid out to commit us finally and irrevocably to colonialism and imperialism The pity of the situation is infinite For the first time in history the American flag is made the standard of conquest for the despaliation and subjugation of a weaker people For the first time in history American soldiers are being compelled to fight against a nation aspiring to be free and to exer cise the Godgiven right of selfgovern ment There is no satis faction possi ble to Americans from such a war There can be no glory in victory at the cost of liberty to another people We rre fighting against ourselves when we fight against any race which seeks to bo free like ourselves Our own free dom is endangered when we deprive a weaker nation of freedom Americans are not blind to these truths The colossal tragedy of the Philippines is teaching its inevitable lesson The blood and money cost of a war which violates the basis princi ples of American Government is bitter ly begrudged The American imper ialists responsible for the appalling

Glasgow Times Prayer for Humanity Following the holding of a mass meeting in the interest of reoipros ity with the Unitfd States the citizens of Havana formed a proces sion marched to the palace occu pied by Governor General Wood and there petitioned that official for American help to save Cuba from rain and desolation The disaster which threatens Cuba is one solely the consequence of a proscription tariff if that bur den is placed on Cuban products The people of the island must needslook to the American people alone for rescue The tariff tax which they fear is being concocted by the United States Government Cuba is forbidden by us to make treaties with any other nation cal culated to protect and encourage her trade agriculture and indus tries If we place a high tariff on her products the result will be ca lamitousOn part we have solemnly pledged the national honjr that we shall deal fairly and justly with Cuba Tho public sentiment of the United States demands the fulfillment of this pledge Vio lation of the pledge is urged by certain special interests which will profit from the destruction of Cu ban industries The final decis ion in the matter rests with the American Congress All the pres sure possible to the syndicate mas ters of the Republican majority in Congress is being brought to bear to impose a high tariff on Cuban prodncts The unhappy outlook at the present moment is that Congress will yield to this pres sureThe Havana procession to the gates of the American Gurernor General palace there to entreat justice at our hands was a pathet ic historical evpnt Also will it be nn ocuinoua event for us if we peoIDiewill not permit the worlds great est free government to sin against the spirit of freedom and not be punished for that sin What shall be our answer to the prayer of the Cuban people Just and humane dealing with a weak and helpless nation holding our prom ise for such dealing or highhand ed oppression in the form of a tyrannical taxation for the further enrichment of American plutocrats The decision in this sol emn matter is of tremendously greater moment to ourselves than to Cuba If we wrong that little people being too mighty for them to resist we shall pay for the wrong in disaster and humiliation as sure as Gods justice prevails St Louis Republic Medical authorities at Manila believe that much of tie

surprise Georgians to Know that the oldest gold mine in the coun try is to be found in this State This ancient bed of the yellow metal is known as the Calhoun mine and is located in Lumpkin county near Danlonega The mine was discovered as far back as 1828 and was owned at one time by John C Calhoun the great nulifier whose name has been associated with it ever since After passing out of the hands of Mr Calhoun it became the prop erty of some agricultural institu tion in the State of South Caroli naFor many years the mine was not worked with much profit to the owners but recently it has come into the hands of an enter prising company of owners who have put six men to work in it yield as much as 300 per month Gradually tho eyes of the country aro turning once more to the mountains ot north Georgia in quest of the yellow metal and judging from discoveries which have recently been made it will not be long before this State again becomes an active center of the gold mining
