up the ccasiou of the celebrdilou of the birthday of Samuel J Tilden by the Democrats of Brooklyn none was more cogent and opportune thau that seut by Hon Richard Olney ersec Tory ot state After paying deserved tribute to the personal character of the grand old Sage of Greysione Mr Oloey stated the four great principles of American democracy which were the gospels of Mr Tildaus faith and patriotism They sound with seductive familiarity to those who lived In the activities of a generation ago and who followed with enthusiasm the banner of that Coeur de Lion of the defiant and vlc torious Democracy of 1870 They sound like slogans of hope to those who are yet devoted to the creed of the fathers and who believe that the day of decision Is near at band when Democracy or imperialism must be master of the helm of the nation Government only by consent of the governed Is the first and dominant principle which Mr Olney mentions That principle was involved in the Titaotic contest which Mr Tilden led against the hosts of republicanism while yet South Carolina and Louis ana were held in leash to the radical machine by military power and their legislatures organized and guarded by federal bayonets The Democrats won the battle but Mr Tilden failed to he cure the presidency Nevertheless by that verdict of the American masses the bayonetsbolstered governments of aliens and semibarbs went by the board and vanished iutoi famy That principle is again on trial be fore the American people Now it is not an issue in any state although the Crumpackers would have made it such If they could but it concerns the peoples whom Providence has delivered into our keeping It concerned Porto Rico until fear made the impe rialists release her Now it concerns the Filipinos As to them the case is anomalous in our history and requires unique treatment in order that this great American principle may be vin dicated and sustained The Filipinos are in our hands to be cared for in their present necessities and prepared for the eiijuymett of those liberties fur which they haveyearned and strug gled so bug To louse them now to their own weak devices and to the greed of the uatious that arc eager for their possession would be to shut out from them every hope of ultimate independence It is our duty on the contrary to take counsel with and for them in order that they may meau while enjoy the largest measures of freedom fur which they are fitted un der our American system and control to the final end of letting them decide in due tune whether they will remain a part of this great and free republic or whether they will try the perilous experiment of an independent govern ment With the propositions that the Democratic prty can make to them under these principles we believe they will cheerfully accept our tutelage and before iLlS ended give their enthusias tic consent to become members of this taxation without representa Lion nor except for the actual needs of the government is the second great tenet to which we are recalled The mere statement of It enforces upon the understanding of every sane American the tremendous opposition it presents tu the whole scheme of taxation thaw piuned and enforced by the republican party It strikes a full front bow up on the torso of the Gollatu of the pro tectionist Philippines It denies the validity of the whole partiality rule by which the many are burdened with taxation to enrich classes and sections It denounces the rubbery of the people through the insidious indirect levieji of tariff infiated prices fur the neeessa ries of life that colossal fortunes may come to favored parasites and amaz ing surpluses be built up and loused for campaign purposes There is no party to which the masses of the people can look for relief from these schemes and the establish ment of just taxation except the Dew ocratic party It must and and will adhere to this cardinal doctrine of equality of burccus and the collection iron labor of no more that is needful to operate au economical tree tiiwru went Personal liberty and freedom of speech limited only by that order which is heavens jfirst law is the third diclaratiunItfs democratic to J uh i t w lJ i a the core and one needs but read the story of the Filipinos of today to n ciU tim suppressions of presses in Cuba and tau Juan slid Malila by military satraps in recent years to feel the cessity for a rcifflrmatlon of that car dual doctrine by the American pen pIe The democratic party alone of f rs rhem that opportunity Equal opportunities under govern went for all without favoritism for either individuals or classes The reading of that diamondfaceted dig ma of democracy is enough to com mend it to every patriot iu the union wto feels resistance to the pro rawwc of favoritism of trustbuilding of yielding power to wealth and corpora Lions of making hewers of wood and drawers of waters of the humble citizens everywhere that has been pur sued by the republican party in recent years It is the essence of democracy and of true Americanism Never in the countrys history was it more needful to reestablish that doctrine than in these parlous times of Ding leyism and government by syndicates and trusts These pillar principles of popular government are not latterday inven tions for the property of any particu lar Democrat or faction of the party They are the first great articles of faith tbat bound the Democracy of ev ery member of the party If they have been obscured by temporary is sues in past contests yet they have not been ignored or abandoned But the day has come the hour is at hand when they should be advanced once more to the heads of the columns that are coming from the east and the west the north and the south to give triumphant battle w the dragon of publicanism and his brood of central ists syndicates trusts officemongers and abettors of imperialism Atlanta Constitution Do They Earn It The Philadelphia Press of a recent issue contains a lengthy article de scribing the enormous profits realized by some of the bankers and trust promoters For instance it is reported that J Pierpont Morgans firm earned ot rather enjoyed an income of sev enteen millions of dollars exclusive of the profits d rived from the organization of the steel trust Of this the senior partner is said to have received 75 per cent The first National Bank of New York declared dividends aggregating nearly two thousand per cent on the capital It is also reported that those who promoted and fianced the seeel trust received more than fifty millions of stock as a bonus Are these sums earned Do those who receive them furnish to society any adequate return fur the money paid to them And is this earning power or collecting power due to natural ability to superior intellect to higher character or to privlliges conferred by he government As the farmer endures exposure in the care of his stock or wearies himself following the plow he can study these figures and ask himself whether the govern ment of which he is part is being ad ministered according to the doctrine of equal rights to all and special priv lliges to none As the mechanic is boring nine or ten hours a day bouyed up t the hope ot an eight hour day conscious that severe sickness in the family would soon exhaust his savings let him cousider whether his votes nave oeen cast for the protection of his own interests or fur the advance rneut of syndicates- As the country merchant goes early to his store and returns late let him consider whether there is as great a difference ias the difference between their incomes would indicate between his services W society anti the services rendered by those who are in a post thin to exact millions in return As the professional wan and the teacher consume standard oil and wear away the night in study let them devote a little time to the problem presented by a comparison of their services and salaries with the ervjpes rendered by and salaries p ud to Mor gan cud Schwub If the turner the artjsun tbe prey chant and the proffessouai man will give a little time to the study of this interesting question they will not de nounce asanarchlsts those who insist that a government should be ulininls terwJtur tie en4t of tie gpverntd and that UereVAu4s of society hocf be adjusted aa nearly as poeslbfctjQ je merits of those whit st rteIlrpaas- l mwuuerr= The Ten Acre Farm Any man who knows how and will apply his brain and muscle can make a vastly better living off a tenacre farm situated ntar some good town that ne ran to work at any of the ordinary trades which will bring him in a daily income of from two to three dollar per day You see when a man is so fixed that he can keep a cow two or three pigs seventyfive hens have a first class garden and small fruit plantation he has got more tbxq halt of the living ftr his family iu sight right on his place saying nothing about what he may be able to sell from it in the way of surplus products A good deal of money can be extracted from a small piece of land when one goes the right way to work For instance each square rod of a well kept asparagus bed will give a return of not less than four dollars while a hundred bunchesjof celery can be raised on the square rod of ground which would sell in any market for nearly as much The hens should pay the grocery bill the milk and butter need ed while the pigs will fill the lard jar and meal barrel We often wonder why so many smart men are content to work all their lives for some other man using about all their wages up in living expenses when they might be independent be their own boss and live on the top shelf by working a ten acre farm Farm Topics FllOM LEXINGTON More than two months have elapsed since I contributed any thing to the News Again I knook at its door and hope to be placed on the correspondents list As I am a State College cadet I will give State College news This grand iustitution has in less than twenty years grown from a few rude school buildings to the finest college buildings in the state of Kentucky its matri culates have multiplied by hun dreds Of the fifty colleges established contemparaueonsly i t h the State College none has done more honest work none has adher ed to the requirements of the law more sedulously and none has been more fortunate in the well earned reputation of its alumni State College is ready to enter the list with any antagonist and will measure palms when its work is doneLast Saturday about 125 cadets and 80 young ladies of State Col lege who were in charge of Profs R N Rowark and 0 W Mat thews left the L N depot at 880 oclock for a days visit to the State Capital A gayer crowd of pupils never boarded a train As the great iron horse sped its way through the beautiful bluegrass re gion toward the capital of the state shouts of merriment Toee and every station was greeted by State College yells The sun shone brightly and the birds were singing their sweetest songs which of course added to the pleasure of all The train arrived at Frank fort about 030 Quite a number of the senators and representatives were at the depot to meet their friends The party went directly to the capitol They first visited the tower house which was called to order at 10 oclock Next they visited the senate After remain ing there some time they started the penitentiary After a walk of half a mile the entire party were inside the walls Warden Lillard was very kind to us lead ing the way through the various departments The different stages of manufacturing were keenly ob served The convicts have access to a good library consisting of classic literature from the best authors This establishment of this library is indeed one of the things the State of Kentucky hag eyes done Papers and magazines are sold to the convicts so they can learu what the outside world is doing When the tfbjstle Wow for dinnflr the convicts

defacted so much that the in soription can hardly bo rend Aft er visiting these monuments we came to the grave of our Martyred Governor Wm Goebfcl With bleeding hearts and tearmoisten ed eyes we looked upon this little mound and felt that only a few feet below were the remains of Kentuckys greatest man and most gallant hero There is none who deserves a monument more than Gov Goebel and it is understood that one will be erected to his memory at the earliest convenience With bowed heads we left the cemetery Next we go to the capitol buildings After stepping on the elevator and being carried to the third floor we are directed to the Kentucky Historical Society Here we see many relics of historical note among them are Boones old flint lock rifle pow der horn and gourd fiddle the first steam engine a very old spinningwheelsome needle work done by Martha Washington the wife of George Washington two dolls made one hundred and five years ago and a block of wood taken from the belfrey of the NorthChurch tower where they hung the beacon light spoken of in Paul Reveres Ride After viewing these historic relics with admiration for some time we de scend to the first floor by means of the elevator where we are met by Prof Roark Led by Prof Roark we visit the Governor in his office He met all with a smile a hearty hand shake and words of welcome In a short time the party assembled at the depot and at 42 0oclook they left Frankfort arriving at the L N depot Lexington at 6 oclockAll somewhat tired but very much pleased with their visit T A SMITH In Neicliborlng Counties Wm J

no indications for immediate re covery He has been an active useful citizen and his confinement to his room is a severe trial though he is cheerful patient and hopeful The lady residents of a number of Kentucky towns have organized what is termed Improvement Association The principal object of the organiza tion is to improve the public grounds The ladies of Columbia should organize and when warm and pleasant weather sets in make a move on the city cemetery This office is now supplied with four hundred dollars worth of stationary It matters not what character of printing you desire we have the mat rial foi the job We are out for everything In sight and if wind and weather do not prevent we will get all we go after The indications are that 1902 will be decidedly the big gest year for the News and to all those who are standing by the paper and patronizing the job department we feel very grateful The meeting which has been in progress at the Methodist church for the past two weeks will probably close this Wednesday night Rev Har ney has been a drawing card and at each night service the church has been filled overflowing It is said that there pave been about sixty conver sions twenty having signified their intention to unite with some branch of the visible church The doors of the church will likely be opened to night and all thosewho desire to unite with some religious body should hand in their names Acompany of State guards was mustered in at Bradfordsville on the 8th with J E Willis as Captain Mr Willis was chosen Captain without a dissenting voice The service he ren dered in the volunteer forces in the CubanSpanish watleminently qualifies him for the positionof Captain and it is our judgment that no mistake has been made The formation of this company we navebeen informed is due to the efforts of Hon H H Rey nicrson Representative of Marion county Not many days ago two gentlemen of this town went to a certain locality in which oil is sought and as the road was unusually muddy they could not reach their destination in a day they called at a farm house The landlord appearing on the porch one of the aforesaid addressed him in a very familiar manner having ascertained his name that evening and asked for lodging The gentleman of the house asked their names and met this introduction This is Mr Jeffries and my self from Columbia All right gentlemen drive in The order was obeyed and the landlord does not know to this good day who myself is Mr H C Baker has been appointed Police Judge of this town by Gov Beckham who acted on the petition sent to him a few days ago by the citizens ot this place It is useless for us to comment on the appointment for we take it for granted that there is not a single objection and everybody who is acquainted with Mrs Baker is aware of his eminent qualiiicatious in everyparticular to discharge the duties of this office The town council elect ed Gordon Montgomery town attorney so with these two gentleman and Mr J W Coy as Town marshal the laws of the city will be enforced Coffey Bros have a few good horses not jet ready for the market They deal exclusively in high grade stock and have bought and sold some of the very best in the last few months It is fortunate for this section to have such dealers for if youhavea real good animal that you desire to sell you only have to bring him to Columbia and ask a fair price There are too many people who are inclined to sell to out ide buyers rather than deal with home people This is often done to the detriment of the seller The idea that one man can sell an animal for as much as another wont work according to the rule of experience in any line Every wan must know his businese and deal honestly in all his transactions If he succeeds One man may be fitted for the farm another to a different occu pation andbe successful they might exchange potations and fail We do not believe that any county in this State has better men wbodealin lire sttscfc than Adair south We arl in receipt of 1 letter from Hon L T nest fiidosiafj a letter to him from Nasaville parties who are figuring on buiftgu line of Railroad that would connect Louisville and Birmingham midway through that section of this State tbat lies between the L N and the Q C Roads The proposed line wirrl pats through Bardstowa SpriimRVM Lebanon CampbelLsvillo CoJUiuWa Uurksville and enter Tennessee an same line on to Birmingham Thtslina woud opeu up onoof the besttimhtrcdsectious of the Sjutb woull idss through the greatest coal deposits of these Statt and beyond doubt wou d be the means ofopeniog up more valuable territory than ahy propose line that has ever been built or suggested in all this Southern country The parties rorrepndcnce wire Mr Neat have have studied this route estimated the immense tonage that would pass over this line and are full fledged believers lit its worth They are now figuring with a view of pushing this matter a successful termination Mr Neat who has been active in soliciting capi talists to see the importance and tre mendous worth of a road through this section is confident that within a few months that all preliminaries will be arracged and actual work begun Mr Neat deserves the endorsement and cooperation of the people of this sec tion and we hgve no fears as to his re ceiving same A line as above sugges ted would cost much money but it would have all the coal it could haul for two hundred years The practice some people have of sending their money to mall order houses for articles of commerce that could be obtained from their home merchants for the same money quality considered is an erroneous one In these days sharp competition in all lines of merchandise eas brought prices as low as practicable and the person who is misled by the pretty words and promises found in the catalogues or mail order houses will come to realize after it is too late that they have been swindled There Is not an instance where a person can buy an article from these mall order concerns any cheaper than they can buy of their local merchants and the fact that Jarge quantities of these foreign goods are shipped back by astute buyers who take the pains to examine the goods before receiving them is proof that the above is a fact We notice in the Elizabethtown News that Mr J B Murrell got into a difficulty with the Jailer of Larue county at the above named town last week and was shot twice The fight came up over politics Murrell claim ing that Brown the name of the Jail er was elected as a Democrat when in reality he believed him to be a Repub lican We insert this notice thinking that the wounded man is a son of Wil lis Murrell who left this county many years ago and that his relatives may know of his condition Farmers have done but little work in the past two months and just when the weather will settle Is a question you can ask some of our neighbors Probably there have been colder win ters within the last ten years certainly
