afternoon brought W J Bryant a party of union laboring men into close straits with a revolver and a large ugly knife By some quick shifts and nimble twists Bryan with the aid of his party succeeded in downing the drunken giant who threatened them and after disarming him projected him outside the park Mr Bryan admitted to day that they had had trouble with a drunken man who was beating a fallen foe but he re fused to discuss the subject I It happened just after the deliv ery of Bryans speech In compa ny with three members of the Ceh tral Labor Union he was going to the gate and to town When not far from the exit they came upon two drunken men They were settling differences with their fists in brutal pugilistic style The heavier man was get ting the better of it as the party hove into view He was on top of his foe and churning his head in a mud puddle alternating with sounding thumps of his fist For the sake of fair play if not for peace Mr Bryan and his escorts wrenched the upper man away He was a stranger and a most unwelcome intruder into the grounds Drawing back he haul ed a knife and revolver from his pocket 1 hile ho was threatening death to his disturbers they sprang upon him Mr Bryan grasped him by one wrist before he could bring his weapon to bear and Messrs Hoskins and Burke and a brick layer grasped his other arm The stranger was at least six feet tall brawny and swarthy with just enough liquor in him to enhance strength and fury In the straggle that followed ho proved a tough proposition Mr Bryan hatS not shaken hands for nothing the past six years He had a grip that would not loosen and he clung to the mans wrist until he had him overpowered The affair was not reported to the police and no effort was made to arrest the brawler A persist ent attempt was made instead by the cooler leaders to hush the matter up and the details did not leak out until today The labor ing men very much regret the in cident MR BRYANS PAPER How will Knox handle the axe handle trust What Mr Roosevelt seems to need is talkless cabinet officers The beef trust hasnt said a word calculated to arouse the enmity of Mr Knox A genuine democratic platform needs no diagram and explanatory foot notesIPerhaps those Iowa Republicans meant tariff perversion instead of tariff revision The gentleman who imagines that Democracy needs reorganiz ing should consult an alienist The Republican leaders appear to be working several of the Mo Kinley policies in the reverse mo tionThe Republican campaign text book has been dry docked for the purpose of repairing some of its platesIt about time that the infant industries be stopped in their practice of assimilating the whole bill of fare The beef trust is so frightened by the presidentts prosecution tha it is about to resolve itself into a still larger trust It is reported that Justice Shi ras is soon to resign from the su preme bench and resume the practice of law We trust that the eminent judge will not act towards his clients as he did towards the income tax A lawyer cannot on e both sides of a case at one and the sametime The attempt to rep bicllnize the democratic party will be a failure so long as democrats stand oil guard and do their duty Sonator Hanna and President both declare that they are friends of the working classes but pret ty is as pretty does When reading of the huge net earnings of the railroads remem ber that the farmers and merchants who pay the freight were caught in the net The Fairbanks presidential boom seems to have paused for the purpose of trying to ascertain who dropped tha monkeywrench into its steering gear If a lot of republican statesmen would vote to relieve labor of unjust burdens the aforesaid states men would not have to offer their services as arbitrators What evidence have we that the President regards a cabinet office as a public trust Answer TheI president compels the holder of the office to defend the trusts The soulless trusts will not ba satisfied until they learn how to utilize the energy that babies waste in playing about the 1100rI and cooing in their mothers arms When a cabinet officer defends a trust he ought to state how much that particular trust contributed to the campaign fund The mutu ality of the transaction would then be understood The 10000 emyloyes let out by the formation of the harvester trust might probably employ their time for the next week or two re calling the siren song of the let well enough alone vocalists in 1900 The officers of a labor union have been jailed for contempt be cause they refused to bring the un ions books into court when order ed to do so The meat trust offi cials refused to obey a similar order but up to date no meat trust officials have been sent to jail PROGRAM The following

produced in the U S BOB TAYLOR ON INGERSOLL- I sat in a great theater at the na tional capital It was thronged with youth and beauty old age and wisdom I saw a man the image of his God stand upon the stage and I heard him speakHis gestures were perfection of grace his voice was music and his lan guage was more beautiful than any I bad ever beard from mortal lips He painted picture after picture of the pleasures and joys and sympathies- of home He enthroned love and preached the gospel of humanity like an angel Then I saw him dip his brush in the ink of moral blackness and blot out the beautiful pictures he had painted I saw him stab love dead at his feet I saw him blot the stars and the sun and leave humanity and the earth in eternal darkness and eternal death I saw him like the serpent of old worm himself into the paradise of hu man hearts and by his seductive elo quence and subtle devices of sophistry inject his fatal venom under whose blight its flowers faded its music was hushed its sunshine was darkened and its soul was left a desert waste with the new made graves of faith and hopeI saw him like a lawless and errat ic meteor without an orbit sweep across the intellectual sky brilliant only in its selfconsuming fire genera ted by friction with the indestructible and eternal truths of God That man was the archangel of modern infidelity and Isaid how true is Holy Writ which declared the fool has said in his heart there is no God Tell me not oh Infidel there is no God no heaven no hell Tell me not oh Infidel there is no risen Christ What intelligence less than Gods could fashion in the human body What motive power is it if not God that drives these throbbing engines of the human heart sending the crimson stream of life bounding through every vein and artery Whence and what if not of God is this mystery we call mind What is it that thinks and feels and knows and acts Oh who can deny the Divinity that stirs within us God is everywhere and Is every thing His mystery is in every bud and blossom and leaf and tree in every rock and hill and vale and mountain in every spring and rivulet and river The rustle of his wing is In every zephyr its might is in every tempest He dwells in thedark pavillion of ev ery storm cloud The lightuing Is His messenger and thunder is His voice His awful tread is in every earthquake and on every angry ocean The Heav ens above us teem with His my raids of shining witnesses The universe of solar systems whose wheeling orbs course the crystal dread halls of eter nity the glory and power and domin ion of the all wise omnipotent and

Treasurer subject to theactlo ol the Democratic party YOUNG MEN TO THE FRONT The able Editor of the Courier Journal is now advocating the bringing to the front of the young men in politics He offers as his reasonsfor this that the generation that grew up from 1860 to 1870 now being about forty years of age in the active stage of political life and many older ones did not have the advantage of educational facilities as the generation of a la ter day j that they were naturally in the South embittered by the Carpetbag rule of reconstruction days and consequently not s6 well fitted for Statesmanship as those who grew up since that dovastat ing period We believe in this teaching and believe such a policy would not only be good for the Democratic party of the South but for the entire interest of the whole country In the days of reconstruction when the minds of Southeners were fired by imported rule when facilities for educational work were shattered when the whole South land was stained with blood property destroyed houses wrecked and a large part of her vigorous manhood crippled it is but natural that that period would produce men of retaliating spirits men who would be guided largely by the issues of the past rather than the burning questions of tho present The generation of a later day as Mr Waterson has well said has had better advantages in education has had less to warp their minds and is therefore bet tar prepared for dealing with the issues of the present and the shaping of the future The young men of today are better qualified for successfully entering any kind of business than any preceeding generation and they are forging to the front under circumstances that seems almost unsurmount able TO DEMOCRATS In pursuance to the call of the Democratic Executive Committee of the Sbcond Railroad Commis sioners District of Kentucky the Democrats of Adair county are hereby notified to meet in mass convention in their respective vo ting precincts Saturday Septem ber 27th at 2 oclock P M and select a representative to the coun ty convention to he held in the courthouse on the 29th day of September at 2 P M for the pur pose of selecting delegates to at tend the district convention to be held in Frankfort ou the 1st day of Oct 1902 to nominate a can didate for Railroad Commissioner N M TUTT Chr D C C A representative of this paper was in Louisville last week and while there had talks with a num ber of Democratic politicians who gave it as their opinion that there was not the slightest probability of the State Central Committee sailing a primary to nominate candidates for State offices Pewee Valley Oldham county has been selected for the Confed orate Home Villa Ridge Inn was purchased at a price of 12500 r It is a magnificent piece of proper ty and at this time there are sev enty rooms furnished All the furniture in the building was in eluded in the sale Now that the primary election in Taylor county has been settled let every Democrat go to work to elect the nominee The election mil to loYJlberl908 The Republican press and speak era were loud in their denunciation that the Democrats had stolen the Populists platform in 1896 Whether their charges were true or false is immaterial to us It was a good platform demanded the right thinga and condemned the wrongs and was in the main sat isfactory to the Populists and es pecially was our nominee for they in turn nominated Mr Bryan Now it seems that the Republicans- will attempt to take the tariff forrevenue plank out of the Dem ourafcic party to beautify and strengthen their platform in the next National contest and to this we object The Republican party has been from its beginning a pro tective party while the Democracy has never demanded more revenue than the actual needs of the Gov ernment economically administered The Republican policy has been operative for more than thirty years and it has granted such fa vers as has built up the strongest combinations of capital in the en tire world so strong that they are controling every article of com merce both raw and manufactured The greed of the trusts is closing out small operators ex tracting large profits from con sumers and setting the price for labor They have become so strong under the Protective policy that it is evident that the severest blow to be given in the interests of the people is a substantial reduction in the tariffgive them out side competition This is a prin ciple a doctrine of the Democrats as old as the party its self but the Republicans of Iowa seeing that the people are finding the true source the main feeder of trusts and monopolies have invaded our party platforms and appropriated a plank favoring a reduction of the tariff on trust controled articles which is purely Democratic Re publican papers are not condemn ing this theft but many are in full accord with it The Democrats will still insist that a Protective Tariff is unjust and unwise and will prove it by present conditions The Democratic Congressional Committee of the Eleventh Dis trict is called to meet in the city of Barbourville September 10th for the purpose of calling a convention to nominate a candidate for congress The committee is composed of the Chairmen of the various counties composing the district and we trust that a full attendence and a thorough inves tigation will result from the meet ing In the Democratic primary elec tion held in Taylor county last Saturday to choose a Circuit Court Clerk Mr W I Meader formerly of Columbia defeated Mr J C Durham by a majority of 81

In a tfoggy TRASIGAL ENDIM Henry E Christie a Promi nent Farmer of Green County Is Shot to Death by Dr J J Booker a Reputable Physician who Resided in Same Neighborhood The Parties Meet Upon the Highway Hot Words followed Ending- In the Death of Christie THE AFFAIR IS SADLY DEPLORED Last Saturday at noon a telephone message announced to the citizens of Columbia that Dr J J Booker a prominent physician of Camp Knox Green county had shot and killed Henry E Christie a well known farm cr and trader who resided in the same locality All the afternoon friends of the parties kept the wires busy trying to learn the particulars but no defi alte information could be gathered It was known that the parties had not Been on friendly terms for some time and it was generally concluded that upon meeting the old sore was opened ending in the unfortunate death of Mr Christie Mr Christie was killed in three quarters of a mile of his home and Sunday forenoon a rep rescntative of the News in company with Mr E G Atkins went to the scene of the trag edy and remained until after the de ceased was buried There were two hundred people upon the farm and diligent inquiry was made for the par ticulars but no definite information could be gathered We are able to make this statement Mr Christie was upon horseback and Josh Ingram a colored man was with him driving one of Christies teams and were going toward the store kept at Haskinsville Dr Booker was coming from the store It seems the colored man was indebted to Booker and a stop was made for a settlement and it is said that it was adjusted though nothing reliable is known It has leaked out that while the parties were conversing reference was made to their old trouble and they both dis mounted and Dr Booker immediately began firing with the result as above Christie was shot twice once In the mouth and once on the right side of the head just above the ear lIe lived about fifteen minutes Immedi ately after Christie fell Dr Booker found his horse and left for Greens burg where he is now under guard awaiting an examining trial which will be called this week During our stay at Camp Knox we made inquiry concerning the character of Mr Christie and also of Dr Booker and all with whom we talked spoke of them in the highest terms Mr Chris tie was a kind and sympathetic neighbor especially was he attentive to the sick and his larder was always opened to the poor of the neighborhood His death is regretted throughout Green and Adair counties and much sympa thy is felt for his mother brothers and sisters The funeral and burial servi ces conducted by Eld Z T Williams took place at the late residence Sun day forenoon two hundred relatives and friends being present Mr Chris tie was a son of the late Capt C C Christie was 36 years old the 24th of last August and was unmarried He leaves a good estate Dr Booker has been practicing med icine in the Camp Knox country for a number of years His neighbors speak of him in the most friendly terms and characterize him as a gentleman in ev ery respect When the examlninc trial is bad the News will give to the pUblic the decis ion of the Court MARRIED At Cane Valley this county Wed nesday September 1902 Mr Claud Callison an industrious and worthy young man was married to Miss Sallie Massie an estimable daughter of Mr Braxton Masslo an extensive farmer and

barometer and low barometer They du know In a gen eral way that a high barometer Indi cates fair weather and a low barometer stormy weather so that it nilgh be better to bay that they do not understand the reason for those indications The whole matter may be made plain In a few words The barometer is as Its Greek name Indicates a weight measure but it Is used only to measure the weight of the atmosphere It is perhaps the most Important Instrument employed In meteorology and is of the greatest possible value to sailors because It In dicates with unfailing accuracy the approach of a storm How it does this we have to explain Most of our young readers have seen one no doubt and will remember that it consists of a glass tube to which Is attached a graduate scale Inside the tube is a small column of mercury which rises from a cup of mercury at the bottom of the tube and the figures on the scale represent its varylni hight Now it is easy to understand that as the mercury in the tube is connect ed with the mercury in the cup it will rise or fall in the tube as the pressure on the cup is increased or diminished But the only pressure on the cup Is the weight of the atmosphere If therefore the atmosphere is relatively heavy the mercury will rise in the tube if it be relatively light the mercury will fall in the tube Thus we learn two things by means of the barometerfirst that dry air heavier than damp air because the mercury rises in the tube in dry weather showing that greater pressure is exerted on the mercury in the cup and second that when the mercury falls in the tube stormy weather may be expected because the air Is damp and light It would be well for you to remem ber this difference between dry air and damp air for many persons have the mistaken notion that damp air Is heavyD B Waggener IF YOU WANT TO BE BELOVED Dont contradict people even If youre sure you are right Dont be inquisitive about the affairs of even your most intimate friend Dont underate
