Congress in Atlanta asking fair play and patience at the hands of the white people With respect to politi ical inequalities the hope was express cdthat the race would prove itself worthy of the full rlghtsof citizenship r ti TIIEPROSPEGTINSOVTIIAFKICA There are many persons some of whom vein the United States who are looking to South Africa as a land of promise They are liable to over rate the consequences of British su premecy In that part of the world A Pretoria correspondent of the London Express which vigorously supported the war writes candidly of the situation there He says that one war is mercifully over but another has succeededthe war of competition the fight for gold the trIte for fortune the battle for bed and board for work and wages the struggle for existence There is keen competi tion for work while the cost of living is increasing On the Rand two thousand laborers are clamoring for work and the mineowners as an act of grace for services on the battlefield agreed to give them temporary em ployment at thirty shillings a week but this Is not to be permanent This means in American currency 760 a week But what about the cost of livingIn and Cape Colony a new comer may share with others a crowded bedroom at twentyfive shillings a week but the majority of laborers prefer to pay thirty shillings for better accommodations and these are very indifferent When the laborer goes inland the case is worse In the Transvaal he will pay 40 to 850 a month for food and shelter The BritI- sh workingman however wants his beer having been accustomed to re gard it as a necessary of life It costs twelve and a half cents a glass at the coast and twentylive cents inland But even with these high costs of liv ing the chancesof employment vary very greatly as do the wages The lower prices are paid at the coast the higher inland where the expenses of living are proportionately heavier For farm hands for example there is no demand Kaffir labor supplies that need There is also no demand for commercial travelers butchers cooks grocers solicitors stone ma sons or waiters Blacksmiths are in demand at 850 to 83 00 a day servants at 815 to 820 a month jewelers at 870 to 8125 a month junior clerks a 830 to 860 a month and so on Some of these rates of wages seem high but when rates of board are considered it will be seen that they barely cover the cost of living in some cases and in others fall below it No rate of wages can be regarded high or low unless the cost of living be considered in connection with it In Johannesburg said to be the most expensive city in the world white men are clamorous for Kaffirs worK at Kaffirs pay and yet the city is full of idle men Legitimate miners who before the war got twentyfive shillings day are enraged t hat men are offering to work at five shillings ButIt seems to be a question of that starvationSo the laborer As to the capitalist it is said that all of the land occessible to markets is privately owned and worked by Kaffir labor Aman with moderate capital would have to contend with extravagant rates of transportation and many oth er plagues Agriculture in South Af rica is for the exclusive consideration of the capitalist and he usually pre fers to speculate in goldmining prop facts of the general accuracy of which there can be little doubt tend to show that South Affrica is not an inviting field for the British labor er and that It is chiefly attractive to the owne of Of large capital if to any The enormous expense and sac rifices of the Boer war are not to be Immediately rewarded by any great advantage to the people of Great Brit ain There arc the gold mines to be sure but they are not reviving as rap idly as had been expected However there Is no doubt entertained of their richness and they will be fully devel oped when existing difficulties arc ov ercome The rewards in this field however are confined to compara tively few and much unproductive property will be unloaded on the public when conditions are favorabl- eIt may be of interest to note that this new possession of Great Britain is very much like our own so far as the masses of ohe population are concern ed Our laboring men cannot go to Hawaii to compete with Chinese and Japanese labor nor yet to Porto Rico or the Philippines In South Africa the cheap labor of the Kaffirs held in virtual slavery closes the door to the workingmen of England or the United States The acquisition of new ter ritory peopled by inferior races presents problems of much difficulty and is likely to remain for some time to come of questionable advantage HERDERS ATTACK A TOWN Battle Wyo Aug llA crowd of Mexican sheep herders attempted to take the town of Battle with the re sult that two of the members were killed Several made their escape in to the woods one man being shot In the leg One citizen was severely cut in the face by a window pane broken by a stray shot Every man In town is armed rear- Ing the Mexicans will swoop down on the town as there are scores of them this vicinity linThe attack was in retaliation for the of 5000 sheep bv the towns people who bad ordered the sheep men to keep away as this territory Is reserved for tbe cattlemen A NOVEL POINT At Bowling Green the will of Cipt Vance disposing of 15000 worth of property was filed for probate Ithad no witnesses but was written by him self on a typewriter but signed with ICenItator does not require a signature but the question arises whether this being typewritten comes within the meaning of the statue requiring such wills to be wholly written Attorneys have been employed on both sides and a big legal fight Is in prospect The soldiers in camp at Mammoth Cave seem to be doing their best to make themselves solid J with the com manderinchief According to the COurier Journal much attention is being paid to crap shooting a form of gambling that has been duite popular under the present administration A serious row was narrowly averted Sat urday because some disciples of Alvey from Louisville made the mistake of shooting with loaded dice They were roughly handled and hustled out of camp It is hardly likely that any visitor will have the temerity to again use loaded dice In the State encampment The gambling must be strictly fair and according to Hoyle or will not be tolerated The Battery A and Battery B boys were the ones who battered the strangers who would not play a fair game The CourierJournal follows Its history of the fight with this paragraph Gov Beckham has requested the two batteries to remain in camp

of the Democratic party For Railroad Commissioner We are authorized to announce R Oven Cochran of Spencer county a candidate for Railroad Commissioner of the Second dis trict subject to the action of the Democratic party A primary is generally a good thing but the good goes to the op posite party The forecast of the next Congress shows its Democratic by 35 So mote it be- Introduce primaries shut out men ot moderate means and when this is done the Republican party will get larger Editor W P Walton is now making an active canvass for the Democratic nomination for Rail road Commissioner in this dis trict There is no fairer way of select ing candidates than county con ventions made up of delegates from precinct mass meetings and none that takes less money Thu large sums of money spent for congressional honors compare favorably with a purchase ofa seat in the New York gambling pits Wonder if they are first cousins We cant understand why some Democratic papers are urging a primary to select candidates for State officers when there is no par ty action that entails as heavy cost and none so productive of strife and dissention Hon Henry Watterson announ ces in a clean clear article that he will not be a candidate for Govenor His article closes followaIII shall continue to labor under my own rooftree till my race is run a free man a Ken tuckian and a Democrat It is stated that President Roo sevelt has suppressed the Repub lican campaign book and that millions of copies have been destroyed ills objection was that it did not endorse his reciprocity views It eeems that Roosevelt is not only President of the United States but King of the Republi can party with unlimited power There is a disposition upon the part of a few Kentucky editors very few to never lose an oppor tunity to fling dirt at three or four Democratic papers who refused to support the ticket in 1896 Those papers have confessed their sins come back to the party and are now fighting manfully for Democratic principles and to us it occurs that it is time to quit mudthrowing Following is the official vote of the republican primary held in theI 11th Congressional district Aug 4 Cos Boreing Colson Parker Adair 920 405 40 Bell 438 1723 44 Casey 695 211 192 Clay 764 268 407 Clinton 402 360 174 Cumberland 475 313 165 Harlan 497 472 179 Jackson 665 79 422 Knox 875 602 893 Laurel 1348 147 576

has passed Democrats in this end of the district are beginning to show some anxiety of opposing the Republican nominee and not let it go by default It is well known to every Democrat in the district that we are not able to overcome the large majority against us or to make a fight that would disturb the Republican nominee Under present conditions it is beyond the power of any Democrat to win hence it is useless to have a nemi nee from the standpoint of win ning Again the party will not become stronger by waging an op p jsition war in this district where no hope of victory is entertained and further the empty honor in making the race is not inviting enough to induce a strong able Democrat to sacrifice his time and money necessary to make a canvass Under present conditions the best way in our judgment to oppose the Republican nominee is for the Democratic party to en dorse the candidacy of Mr W S Stone the Prohibition candidate and then every Democrat go to the polls and vote for him He is a gentleman in every respect an able lawyer an if elected would make an ideal Congressman On the great questions the issues be tween the Republican and Demo cratic parties Mr Stone has heretofore been a consistent advocate of Democratic principle but in the budhood of this campaign be fore either party had acted he wusI the chosen standard bearer of the Prohibition people He is therefore free from party cliques from pie hunters and the demoralizing elements that wage war for person al profit He is a man that all Pro hibition people could cheerfully support regardless of political views He is eminently worthy of the active aid of every man who is opposed to the election of Mr Boreing and if all who oppose his election will give Mr Stone their votes he may be the next Con gressman from this district The News is not made of surrendering material It is not inclined to forsake Democratic principles but seeing the hopelessness of going against overpowering numbers without inviting outside aid or rather allying our interest with that of others we merely suggest that our Congressional Committee take such action as will strengthen the opposition to the Republican nominee We have interviewed a number of good Democrats in this section and so far find no op position to supporting Mr Stone We trust that the committee will see the uselessness of having a Democratic nominee and that it will teke such action as will unite the opposition against Mr Bore ing The News extends a hearty welcome to all who visit the Fair trusting that each individual may enjoy the keen competition that is inevitable where good stock go aft ter good premiums That nothing may happen to marr the pleasure or to reduce the moral worth of anyone The News has been an advote of the Fair believing that it stimulates a desire and produces efforts to advance our productive resources from the hand that rocks the cradle to the strong arm that guides the thoroughbred It fur ther believes that as a social gathering a fair is not a failure Why should man linger around the old homestead all the days of his life Why not get out once a year and meet on the ground of merriment and forget for a few days the fatigueing environments of coun try life Why not meet your friends at a fair Why not enjoy life Heres to the happiness and advancement of all Evidence of whiskey and money in the recent primary was plainly visible but we venture the asser tion that these sine will not be uncovered nor the sinners molest ed Its a big difference as to whose ox is gored A seat in Congress is often ai costly thing but a good businessman can usuajly handle it without aloes THE CONFERENCE I have been asked so frequently in In regard to the coming session of Conference which has been appointed to meet at this place October 1st that I take this method of advising the people of the town as to the number of persons who co nstitute that body and also concerning the plats for its entertainment Before the meeting the last Annual Conference there were several letters received by per sons here stating tbat incase the peo pIe of Columbia desired to have theI Conference meet here Itcould be cured Those who bad received letters concerning it thought the proper way to find the wishes of the people of the town suggested that papers should be sent around to the people and the number of homes secured should be noted down This was done and nearly all of the housekeepers were seen and it is said that scarcely one who was seen refused to entertain two or more of the preachers or delegates in fact men and women of all denominations very kindly agreed to assist in the matter and in a few days a large number of homes were secured A few people have not been seen yet but will be called upon in a few days to secure other homes The matter of bringing the Conference to ColumbIa was presented to the Bowling Green Conference with thestatement that it was almostunlversally unanimously desired and the invitation was unanimously accepted The Methodist of the town want to thank in ad vance the members of other churches in the town as well as all others who have so kindly proposed to assist in entertaining the body There are one hundred and sixty preachers and thirtysix delegates who constitute tie body There will be other con nectional officers which will Increase the number to something over two hundred Notice will be given tbat the families of preachers and dele gates cannot be entertained while it would be the pleasure of many of our people to do this yet room for all could not be found It will be arrang ed that most people of the town will have only two preachers or delegates a few agree to take more It will quire the assistance of nearly every family In town to accommodate the body In due time every membar of the Conference will receive notice of the home to which be will be assigned and every one who has so kindly off ered a home will be notified who tber guest will be One room with one bed will be sufficient for two delegates and with two beds four can be accommodated It is desired that the matter be arranged In a way to make the whole affair as little trouble as possible and at a small expense It will require the assistance of the whole town to care for the Conference and from the expression heard on all sides no doubt when Its over the Conference will be well pleased with their treatment while they sojourned among the people of Columbia J E HINDMAK Union Hotel and Restaurant J F BROWN Proprietor 237 and 239 Seventh Avenue East Side

with excellent music This band Is composed of representative residents of Liberty and they are out for recreation and a nice time The Fair is now on and we trust that every young man will keep within

larger than heretofore and on Wednes day and Thursday the grand stand and grounds were packed There were representatives fromJ Adair Casey Pulaski Taylor Cumberland Clinton Wayne Marion Lin coIn and Boyle and perfect order pre vailed during the entire four days There was not a great deal of stock on exhibition but competition was spir ted and the rings very interesting Miss Sallie Patterson an attractive daughter of Mrs Belle Patterson Jamestown won in two riding rings and she also accompanied the gentleman In the Russell county finest turnout show winning over Miss Bexroat another popular young lady The finest turnout double team was awarded to Misses Pearl Baugh Jamestswn Miss Sallie Rep Marcum Columbia and Miss Edna Ramsey Monticello They were accompanied by Mr JasLodgcs of Casey county drove two beautiful bays hooked a very attractive vehicle W L Grady of Adair was present with a good string of ring stock and as was awarded a number of prem ums Jeffries Cain Pulaski exhibited a several head of fine horses and perhaps received more blues than any firm The sheep mule and shows were good and the racing fine Swifty the celebrated recently purchased by a syndi comprising a number of Columbia gentlemen won in two hotly contest d races The free for all trot mile two best in three was won by a sorrel horse belonging to Mr P W Napier of Liberty A little brown mare belonging to Mr O P Bowman Casey county won in the thorough bred running racevThe premium for the best girl ridee under sixteen years old was awarded Miss Lina Rosenfield of this placeC She rode beautifully and looked as handsome as a peach The balloon man gave three exhibi lions and perhaps had more to do in drawing the large assemblies than any other attraction The Liberty Band comprising twelve of the best amateur players InJ the State furnished the music They i are rendering highclass selections andE more gentlemanly set of men could not be found in Kentucky This week- theyarc playing for Columbia winning from every body It is impossible for us to go Into d e at this writing but suffice it to that it was a very successful fair and to Mr J H Smith and Mr J D Stephens the promoters much credit is due AUTOMOBILE- Mr Sam Lewis and JO Russell who spent a few days In Chicago last weekiare now at home in this city in the great Metropolis of the North they spent a portion of tneir time in informing themselves as to the meritsI the automobile The interviewed Mr Lewis and be states that an automobile large enough to carry twenty passengers and baggage from Columbia to Campbellsville would cost about 3000 and that the life of such a machine Is fully fifteen yearsI based on the estimate of four per day ThereIs only one weak point and that is the tire which would have to be replaced annually This would be the largest item of expense in the wear the machine and the actual cost of running such a machine would be only 3150 per day Mr Lewis states that Mr Russell and himself contemplate buying a machine themselves or organizing a stock company for the purpose and thus afford a quick safe and comfortable passage between the two above mentioned cities or as we should say towns Passage on an automobile wo Jld be free from the jars of a stage and in winter be heated by steam The time tocover the distance between the two places would be li hours We have no doubt of the ulti mate succes of such an enterprise and trust that this community will give such encouragement as the importance ofthlsundertakingdemands Get out of the old ruts go through the world in a hurry We have no railroad n reason to hope for one so let the automobile have the right of way After the Fair would be a fine timer for the people on the Somerset road to make that now piece of road that will be needed when the bridge is built at Wilsons Kill Its this way If you make the road now you will be ready for the bridge if you put it oil until winter it cannot be made Why not take time by the forelock Mr John Calhoun who has just re turned from a few week visit to Illinois states that he met quite a number of ex Adair county people and that they are all doing well Mr Cal houn is now dissatisfied with his lot in this section and says that he is going hack to Illinois to make his home The storm last Friday evening blew a tree across Mr J McScotts spring house and demolished the house and all its contents It was our intention to notify every person when their time would expire on the 10 cent proposition but we have been crowded with work and many will not be notified When you fall to receive the paper you will know that your time is up and we trust that you will then subscribe The Adair County News did a big business at the Russell Springs Fair Besides the substantial support given the paper by the people of Russell county many persons who live in other counties were added to the list To all these and the ten or twelve firms who gave us orders for jopwork we are truly thankful Deputy Collector Nell made a move the other night and captured a still in the edge of Green county but the shiners made good their escape Re gardlessof tearups in defiance of law and in the face of impending danger it seems that some men are as prone to make liquor as some are to drink it Mr Nell is hustling them all along the line The News force wes the recipient of basket of nice grapes last Thursday presented by Miss Bessie Shearer The basket contained two varieties the white and the purple and were cellent We extend our thanks to the young lady for such a substantial membrance and the impartiality in which she presented the delicious fruit to the whole force Mrs Mary Boll died at her late home near Dunnvllle Casey county a few days ago She was probably the oldest woman in Kentucky being 106 years of age at her last birthday She had a wonderful memory and could relate entertainingly many incidents of the war of 1812 The deceased was born Washingtons

Wednesday at the home of the brides parents Rev W C Sandidge officiated The grooms a son of Mr Frank Staples and an energetic farmer The bride Is a daughter of Mr Geo Moran and an accomplished young lady The News extends its good wishas Russell Springs and vicinity was vis- Ited by a terrific wind storm last Fri diy afternoon just as the Fair closed Trees were uprooted and a great deal of corn was blown fiat to the ground It came just as the Fair closed and hundreds of people could not get shel er and whe n tha storm ceased they looked like drowned rats A great were terribly frightened believ ng that a regular cyclone was upon them iJudge Butler has leveled to the face the old brick business house just opposite the Marcum hotel This house was oneof the oldeststruct ures on the square and its removal is not regretted by the citizens of the town One by one they have disap peared and new ones of better form and greater capacity have been erected Mr Butler will not rebuild on the corner but leave the space open for the benefit of his commodious residence Just as soon as the Fair is over attention should be given to Improving the public roads The county has plenty of scrapers plows and other tools and the County Judge Is anxious to grade up any piece of road in the County if the people will agree to ma cadamize it This may be done by using stone from the fields or quarries or by using creek gravel Every farm er could afford to give a few days of his time to improve the roads The County Judge is anxious that this be done and i ready to assist Dont put it off but fix some of the worst places just for a change The selling value of a horse now depends on his willingness and ability to step high Mostany kind of a high Tho real value however in our judgment belongs to the combined animalthe one that will fill any of the uses for which he was intended But there is a small supply of either and but little attention given to increasing the num ber Most of our farmers are interest ed In the growth of cotton headed mules because they can be sold at weaning time This section needs a good thoroughbred horse 16 bands high The foundation stock should be vitalized and in no other way can it bo done The horse men of this county should consider the real value of securing a thoroughbred and then the cross later on and would produce just what the market at all times mand If more dams possessed thor oughbred blood we would soon have a higher grade bt horses FOR SALE A farm of 100 acres four miles east of Columbia on Jamestown road 70 acres in
