Morgan waives his rule The Roosevelt trust busting is all done in the advance notices Of course the new thresher trust will make the farmers shell out The harvester men are forming a huge combine but hush Knox might find it out Why not send General Bragg to Manila His letters would then be properly censored Mr Knox did not grow a bit angry when the beef trust gave him the equine caohihnation Mr Babcock continues to give amazing exhibitions of ground and and lofty tumbling on the tariff revision question Mr Quay is laid up with a burned foot but he still has a pair of good hands with which to shake the plum tree The Tennessee elections prove beyond a doubt that the Tennessee democracy is not in need of re organization The fishiest part of that restaurant story is that any trust mag nate should sneer at Mr Knoxs attitude towards tho trusts Mr Hannas Cleveland street railway interests seem to be experiencing difficulty in keeping their injunctions on straight The Lots of Five proposition deserve the careful consideration of every Democrat The man who said that Lan guage is given us to concealour thoughts may have had the re publican campaign text book in mind By refusing to arbitrate and en joining others from feeding the striking miners the anthracite mine owners expect to solve the problemThe paragrapher that has failed to speak of the Firmin tation of Haytien politics has missed an unusually good oppor tunity Mr Neeley now wants the money he had on his person when arrested and which was taken from him by the federal authorities Even the arrogant trusts might be benefitted by securing the name of the nerve food Mr Neeley uses The new harvester trust comes at an opportune time It will keep the farmers from saving enough money to make them plu tocraticMr has changed his mind and he wants it distinctly understood that it is nobodys business when why or how he changed it The trusts are perfectly willing to let the republican party do all that is done to curb the power of the trusts The trusts know when they are well off If the republicans are determin ed to prosecute a campaign of al literation they should not overlook the possibilities of Fatfry iug Folderol and Fulmination The president says his tour is to be strictly nonpartisan and all the republican campaign commit tees along his route are exerting every effort to make it so Mr Knox is accredited with a desire to leave the cabinet says an exchange Thus it appears that even Mr Knox may harbor a disire entertained by the masses Many a trust magnate has said things at the other table that has caused American workmen to quit eating but Attorney Gener al Knox was not ready to inter fere The only difference between the Kankakec ill insane asylum re publican band and other republi can bands is that the Kankakee fellows can play band instruments It may be that the g o p fat fryers will chase the trusts around for campaign contributions until r the trusts commit the Harry Tra cey finish in sheer despbration The public may be able to real ize the full meaning of the horri ble announcement of an extra ses sion of the senate after pondering for a time on the makeup of the SenateMr Morgan is hustling to get his shipping trust all ready to re ceive the shipping subsidy bounty he expects to secure after he has elected the proper kind of a con gress duly CRAFT Corn is

Monte Carlo Monaco Johore and Macao pale into insignificance Saratoga has ac quired Port Saids laurels as the wick edest place on earth The New York papers teem with stories of vast sums lost or won at the games the gamblers being pictured as heroes or demigods These Saratoga gambling houses enjoy the protection of the lay because they contribute liberally to Senator Tom Platts republican strong box They would doubtless be given the same protection were the other crowd in control of the state government it isnt a question of politics The condition of things Is rather a reflection upon the

of the Democratic party Richard Cook who murdered W H CravenS at Owensboro was tried last week and given twentyone years Hon D G Colson has announc oil that he has retired from poli tics and will turn his attention to practicing law and making money The friends of Hon James W Blackburn brother of Senator Blackburn are pushing him for Commissioner of the District of Columbia The Danville people are after keepers of blind tigers Six dens were raided last weak and the keepers are now in the toils of the the law Russell Sage sounds a warning He says stocks are dangerously high and that if speculators were not careful they would fall over a precipice He says the big horses are getting out rapidly and he predicts an early crash Gen Russell A Alger who was a member of McKinleys Cabinet but was retired on account at the canned beef scandals is a candi date for United States Senator to succeed Senator McMillan of Michigan lately deceased The State Board of Election Commissioners met in Frankfort last Saturday for the purpose of appointing the county election boards We take it that good men will be selected as the State Board acts upon the recommenda tion of the county Chairmen At a social in Owsley county a few nights ago one man was kill ed one mortally wounded one had his arm shot off and three other men and one woman were slightly wounded At one time it looked like the disturbance would break up the party One thousand pounds of poultry will cost less to raise than one thousand pounds of beef and will sell for twice as much No body knows this better than Sam Lewis Columbias produce man who never puts money in any thing alive larger than n chicken Ho shipped a thousand pounds last week The Railroad Commissioners of EIIu fourteen States are pledged to give tho Commission of Kentucky all the assistance they can in tho in vestigation of the proposed merg er of Southern railroads if asked Chairman McChord of tho Ken tucky commission is the Presi dent of the association He has refused to state whether the fight will bo made by Kentucky alone or by the entire fifteen States Last Monday was tho date fixed by Mr McChord for his commis eion to take ill the fight The meanest man in Kentucky IF doubtless lives in Mercer county L A few days ago Mr C F Vanars lf f 5 dall who resides three miles from Harrodsburg went into his pasturer r to catch his mare to drive to Mown On leading her to water he jiV noticed that she dipped her head 11 into the pool nearly up to her eyes w before she was able to swallow When he reached the barn the J Xinare made an uusu jftjaful effort to eat hay He then opened her mouth and was horrified to find f that some scoundrel had out her tongue out by tho roots The perpetrator of this dastardly deed t deserves the samo punishment Fh Furthermore it is aBtoniBSirig that such persons are permitted to Y1 live f ys d r 1i f The Somerset Journal one of our best exchanges anu innDemocratic paper has takiu to heart our article written time ago in which we augg ted that the Democrats of this dir riot endorse and support Mr St ae the Prohibition candidate We are just as anxious to have uur party gather strength to show its courage indefense of its priLciple as any Democrat in the State e find as much pleasure in supp nt ing a true Democrat as any man Never have we flunked Lever have we lost sight of the best in terei t of our party and our district We suggested the endorsement of Mr Stone simply as a means of uniting all opposition against Mr Boreing We made this suggestion simply because no Democrat could afford to make the race We still entertain the same opinion not withstanding the Journal wants it straight and pitches out the hope that the Democrat who makes the fight will immortalize himself and become a leader The Journal de mands a Moses but no Moses can arise just now We have had Democratic Moses in this district under far more favorable circum stances and instead of leading us to the Promised land they merely led us into the wilderness where we have been for many years and God only knows when our deliver ance will como No man has yet made himself a great power by be ing the Democratic nominee in this district and no one need en tertain the hope of doing it now It is immaterial it seems to us as to whether we have a candidate or not so far as it would increase or diminish our chance of getting a place on the State ticket Going square up against defeat does not indicate that a Democratic State Convention would turn the ear of pity Democrats have fused with Populist where they were unable to beat the common enemy likewise Republicans have allied withother forces to defeat Demo crats The truth is that merely righting just to be the under dog all the time is not good policy in our judgment We would favor no deal at the sacrifice of princi ple but in this matter it is not a question of surrendering tariff for revenue or the free and unlimited coinage but merely giving aid to a party and a gentleman not des tined to sweep the country or to seriously disturb the man who takes his drinks at his own will To fully satisfy the Editor of the Journal we will say that we abide the action of our party but up to date have not heard of any one wanting to run for glory in this district Enterprising Danville citizens are working day and night to se cure the extention of the Southern railway to their city It requires 27000 to purchase the right of way and 20000 of the amount has been secured The only way to get business is to go after it Railroads make business This section would thrive if the people would wake up Dont wait for a paying enterprise to turn up but reach out and turn it up If we have a gentleman in the commu nity who is endeavoring to lift us out of the mire give him substan tial aid We understand that Dr L C Nell of Gradyville will be a can didate for the Republican nomina tion to represent Adair and Cum lerland counties in the next Leg islature Dr Nell has been active in his party and will doubtless get that which he desires Mr Logan the spicy editorial writer of the Louisville Times has bought a fine farm in Warren county and it is said that he will become a disturber of the earth His placIjll be hard to fill for he is equal to any emergency or any occasion Governor Beckham and Chairman McChord of the Railroad Commission will not have any merger of the L N and the Southern in this State- KNIFLEYr Mr G H Slaughter and wife of Somerset are visiting the fam ilies of A C Wheeler and J R Beard this place The

indulged in concern Ing the building of an electric road from Columbia to Campbellsville At times it seemed that an effort would be made to organize a company and undertake the building of the road but just at the time when action seemed thte rs oftour weuld be a dead measure for a short while This question fell as many times as it rose but the great possibil itiesthe developing of our section in giving better means of transportation in reducing freight rates and placing our town in touch with some of the conveniences cf modern civilization would not let this proposed enterprise pass out of the minds of our people This question has been thoroughly ag itated The cold calculator has made figures and beyond a doubt it would be a magnificent investment No one fa miliar with this country its resources and position doubts the wisdom of building the road yet it has not been built simply because it had no leader Again this question is up and this time it has a leader a man who has calculated the cost both In effort and money who has figured in the columns of its profits and losses and after so doing has made up his mind that it is a good Investment that it would be of great worth to the material advancement of this town and county We refer to Prof W K Azbill whose efforts In whatever he has undertaken have not been with out results Mr Azblil knows what he is going against that it is no childs game and that if he succeeds he proves himself a great bedefactor for this sec has outlined his plans of proced ure which leads to the building of the road the lighting of Columbia and Campbellsville and the introduction of other enterprises of smaller magnitude dependent upon electricity He is able to execute his ideas provided the proper encouragement is given in the sec dons affected Now is the time for the people of this county to step out of the old paths and associate themselves with modern progressive methods that will yield pleasure and profit to them selves and posterity Help in the work and if you cant help or if you desire no part in it then stand back and keep your coldwater off This community must get out of the old order of things or else it may certainly count the loss of losing a large nuoioer of its most progressive young men each year Slow communities do not invite enter prising young manhood to abide within their borders Prof Azbill introduced the Importance of this matter to a good sized au dience in the court house Monday in a brief but pointed speech He mere ly asks the people to give their good will and the right of way but is firm in the conviction that those who are able to take stock in the road should do so rather than have it all to go to others outside of our section We have heard a good number outspoken in their endorsement of his proposition and we feel safe in saying that all Mr Azbill demands will be cheerfully granted MARRIAGE LICENSES The following marriage licenses were issued fiom the Adair County

away from Columbia much of the time laboring for people of lower chI lizations than ours and while I have been absent my own people have retrograded This to me is more than a sad tae it is an admonition If not a reproofI It is right yes imperative to carry our Christian civilization to the benighted and belated people and we are the more Christian for all we can do in that direction But we must not neglect our own while working for others Besides the people to be en lightened and elevated hero are as much in the sight of their Creator- as those far away Another thing preliminary to the main thing I would say The world having greatly progressed in its methods of doing most things like the moon we seem to be dropping back when we move forward so slowly as to get behind the daily advances of the earth And Columbia is many and many moons behind I want our pan pIe to catch up with the procession- I go in for an electric light plant an electric railroad and other things of this kind not merely because they will increase the volume of business fill mens pockets with money and their stomachs with food but because they will furnish wholesome intellectual and bodily exercise for our young people I want these things as branches of a great industrial training have those who can become engineers mortormen conductors clerks superintendents constructors of roads bridge builders and the like I want them to have a chance I want to see them in the process of de velopment whilst we are developing our physical resources I can think o1 no better mission work than this As to the church no where else is there so much need of advance But this is a matterabout which I will talk to you at some future time It is enough at present to say that the kindergarten the gymnasium the reading room the lecture room and the normal Bible class should take the place of the formal prayer meeting the sermonizing and much else that is not really edifying And thecontribu tlon of money to pay for sermons might give place to acts of helpfulness to widows orphans and needy persons FOR SALE My farm of 80 acres four miles east of Columbia on the Jamestown toad Sixty acres in cultivatior

squadron and relieve Admiral Seymour the present com mander In Chinese waters Speaking of the present condition of affairs in China he said Matters In the far cast so far as Britain and Russia are concerned have somewhat cleared The situation how ever Is not yet robbed of its gravity for the powers who took part In the march to Peking and It would not be surprising If even yet there were a conflict between two If not more of the countries engaged in what is really lice duty at present Russia it seems Is making herself extremely disagreeable to Japan in the region of Korea and the virile eastern empire strangely in contrast with that of China is said to be preparing for the struggle which from the present outlook seems inev itable in the near future The czars government robbed Japan of what were considered its legitimate spoils of conquest The Muscovite practically compelled the evacuation of Port Arthur and Japan has never forgiven that unfriendly act The powers are still in an attitude of antagonism and a little friction would bring about a conflagration The dangers of a conflict between the two powers are not to be lightly regarded by other nations interested I have no
