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 beheld in Frankfort ou the 1st day of Oct 1902 to nominate a candidate for Railroad Commissioner N M TUTT Chr D 00 THE FOWLER BILL The effort of the Republicans to pass the financial measure known as the Fowler Bill bas been postponed until the next session of Congress It was reported favorably by the Committtee on Banking and Currency and a caucus was called to consider it butthe near approach of the elections prevented bill is a very voluminous docu ment and contains many provisions that will be opposed by the Democrats There are three important provisions that even many Republicans will not approve namely 1 Asset Currency 2 Branch Banks 3 Retirement of the greenbacks The first of these asset currency is criticised by Mr Dawes the former Comptroller the Currency who said We do not want an asset currency that will help us into a panic when we are out of one but an emergency currency that will help us out of a panic when we are in one This Republican view of asset currency shows tbat this section of the bill Is an unsafe one If the manage ment of all the banks was safe and con servative and the assets of each bank were of such a character that they could be immediately turnediinto cash a currency based on assets would not be so dangerous The bill further provides for an amendment of the national bank acts so as to authorize the establishment of branch banks tbroughout the United States its possessions and foreign countries This would soon concen trate all the banking business of the country In the hands a few largec banks ana wipe out the smaller banks of the country towns The great majority of the bankers themselves are opposed to thiscThe bill further provides for the cancellation and retirement of the greenbacks These notes of the government do not draw interest as do the United States bonds It would therefore seem to be a batter business policy to retire the interest bearing debt first There are a number otI other sections of the bill which are jectionable but these are the princi pal onesGlasgow Times A WEAK INVENTION The sensational reports that OdellI Platt and Morgan are at outs with theI President on account of his attitude onI the Trust question in his New England campaign and that they will deny to him a plank in the forthcoming State platform Indorsing him for renomina tion is a weak invention In the first place Roosevelt has not antagonized the Trusts On the contrary henas gone back on his labor day speech in Milwaukee when he was a vice presidential candidate and his words rightly Interpreted are favorable rather than otherwise as they were apologetic in the sense of arguing that the trust itself is beneficial without discriminating between a good and bad one Then his remedy for the bad was stated as so remote and improbable depending upon a constitutional amendment and subsequent legisla tion as to give comfort and encourage ment rather than alarm to the monop olistsThere need be no fear of such a coal ition against him He holds the cards so to speak on them and if there should be any such opposition be would soon show them his power He may not have influence to carryan electio- In Vermont but in New York he is paramount and don t you forget It Courier Journal FOOT JOHN Old John is called a fogy Of the little fogy kind Dudes would have to go way back And take a seat behind For hes not decked with jewels Or finery so neat Theres hay seeds in his pockets Theres brogans on his feet His clothes are few and shady With home made unlerdudds That are not shipped to China To have them put to sudds Johns not a graceful stepper He goes the cornfield gait Grows good bristles on his face And fuzz upon his pate He never smokes a cigarette Or gives the nasal puff But chews old field tobacco For Johns not up to snuff And seldom takes refreshments Just for his stomaches sake Or crowds his meek digester With pie and sugar cake Dried apples fur his breakfast For dinner he takes tea When fruit expands for supper Johns full as he can be Though not a real gusher If he would only try When

Atlanta Constitution JAS EH The farmers of this vicinity in whose rests the welfare of the community are lamenting over the dry weath ereWe should not bother about the weather nor lament over the failures the past but turn our faces buoyantly to the future and cherish whatever star of hope that yet trembles before Several from this place attended the Teeacher Association at Coffeys Chapel last Saturday and report a good time The hospitality of the people about Coffeys Chapel never fails to draw a large crowd There is brotherly love in every handshake and the word welcome trembling on every tongue The teachers of our neighboring schools are striving to make their schools a success but the educational spirit of our commtnlty is not what it would be if the older people would encourage the boy and girl whose ambition It is to get an education How long will it take the average farmer to realize tbat a liberal education for his boy or girl is far better and more appreciated than the meager sum of money that he gives them at the age of twentyone or the small spot of ground he may leave for them when he is called to sleep the dream less sleep Ignorance Is the cause of all wrong doing and misery and knowl edge is the only cure and education is the road to knowledge Mr Stone of Monticello the Prohi bition candidate for Congress addressed our people a few days ago Mr Stone is fighting for a noble cause but the people are not yet ripe for the cause which he Is expounding The protracted meeting at Cumberland Ridge has closed and the people are cutting tops and pulling fodder In the city of Boston there works together nine men who weigh 2010 innthe office under them occasionally looks up at the celling bud worries Who cab blame him v TARIFF AND TRUSTS ONE ISSUE That tariff and the trusts in re ality constitute but one issue as is the view taken by the National Democratic Campaign Committee is a fact ao apparent to the student of existing American conditions as to be beyond question on the part of intelligent men The despotic monopolies now enjoying absolute control of Amer ican markets have been fortified by prohibitive duties The Ding ley law gave them additional power Their modern c olcBFal dimpn sions followed the opportunity for monopoly which was presented by the Dingley tariff By contributing millions of dol lars to Republican campaign slush funds they bought the control of the Republican party in order to use that party for their own sel fish ends They have employed their money and their influence to keep the Republican party in pow er A substitution of the policy of a tariff for revenue for that of a proscriptive tariff is so distinctly a blow at the evil trusts that as an issue it cannot be separated from the trust issue If tha Ding ley tariff is done away with the great monopolies of this country enriching a few hundred men at the expense of 80000000 Ameri can consumers will no longer con trol the situation They will have to return to the system of fair and open competition in busi ness They will have to recognize the natural law of demand and supply as regulating prices They will not be able to crush individu ale and small business concerns for their own further enrichment It is little wonder that the bitterest resentment is aroused among the trusts by the popular demand for tariff revision The tariff and the trusts are one issue and this is the dominant is sue of the campaign of 1902 and 1904 American Democracy is fighting both these evils in the in terest of the people There is good reason to believe that Amer ican voters are at last so fully alive to the fact of Republican subserviency to the tariffcreated trusts as to inssure a support of Democracy at the polls which will overthrow tho Republican party from power in this government St Louis Republic GOOD SIGN OF PROSPERITY Authoritative reports of unus ually heavy buying on the part of country merchants now making their purchases of fall stocks in the great markets of the United States indicate that an exception ally healthy condition prevails in general trade The volume of buying by mer chants of the smaller cities and towns throughout the country is a reliable barometer of the countrys condition If the people general ly are prosperous they spend money freely in satisfying their needs The stores which they patronize are in their turn led to make ample purchases from their sources of supply in the large cities The fall trade this year is brisk er than ever before This means that the country is prosperous and tbat a profitable business year is now beginning Among the great markets and distributing centers St Louis is one of the busiest and her merchants are now breaking all records in the total of their sales That must be a pessimis tic soul indeed which can find any thing to grumble about in the lo cal trade situation Republic The Kentucky soldier boys who served In the State militia as volunteers during the SpanishAmerican war will probably receive pay for the entire time of their service from the time they responded to the call for troops Issued by the President to the date of their muster in by the United States officers Attorney Calhoun of Lexington representing the State filed an appeal with the Controller of the Treasury from the decision of the Auditor for the War Department which allows only 826000 of the claim ol the Kentucky militia Captain Cal Noun asks for about 8150000 which he is cohfidenthe will get The boys who endured fiomny hardships in serving thelrcountry deserve to be paid for the tall time of their service POLITICAL NOTES California Democrats have nomina ted Frank K Lane for Governor The Democratic State ticket in Louisiana was elected by majorities ranging from 35000 to 45000 The State election in Arkansas was held last week and the Democratic ticket was successful by the usual ma jority of about 45000 in a light vote All of the Congressmen elected are Democratic State Conven tlon Cedar Point near Sandusky sulted In the nomination of the ticket with a single exception as slated by Mayor Tom L Johnson The conven tion was also made the vehicle for launching the boom of Mayor Johnson for the Presidency in lOOt The Rev Herbert S Bigelow of Cincinnati heads the ticket as nominee for Secre tary of State The platform adopted reaffirms the Kansas City platform However much Teddy may launder when he essays to discuss the trusts or get tonguetied on the tariff he is gen ally in his element when he touches on the Blue and the Gray which he uen erally serves with a little Santiago sauce His allusion at Chattanooga Sunday in responding to a cane pre sentation speech to Gen Hood and Gen Wheeler though brief was very apt Standing upon a battlefield where nearly forty years ago the losses on either side were ten or twelve thousand he could not more eplgram matically have Illustrated the changes of time than in noting the fact that he had fought under Gen Wheeler at Santiago and that a soon of Hood was in his own regiment thereboth Con federate Generals having fought at Chickamauga The incident was heightened in effect by being not far distant from the birthplace of his motherAt Church Mercer county after throwing the two brothers of the bride out of the church window Rich ard League returned to the altar and married Lillie Pelley A protracted meeting was in progress and a large crowd was in attendance Rev J C Milliam announced that a marriage was to take place before the congrega tion was dismissed Two brothers of the prospective bride objected to the marriage and attacked the groom League put both of them out of the window Before they could come back the ceremony had neen performed A fight took place at Red Banks Cumberland county between Floyd and Fayette Riley on one side and Charles and James Roach on the other side Floyd Riley struck James Roach and Fayette Riley cut Charlie Roach several times As a result of the fight Charlie Roach is dead of his wounds An old grudge was the cause of the W S Houchins pastor of the Christian church of Burgin met with a peculiar accident which nearly cost him his life He was splitting some kindling wood at his home and had the sharp ax poised above his bead when it struck a wire clothes line just above him turning the course of the instrument toward his head the keen blade striking him above the car with full force laying open the scalp Joseph Dossett of McLean county is slowly dying of a snake bite which was received a year ago He has never been able to work since bitten and within a month after that time the wound made by the snake commenced to slough This process has gone on until the mans whole body is more or less involved President Roosevelt reminded the people of New England that his present attitude toward the trusts is exactly that which he maintained when he was making stumpspeeches for the Republican cause two years ago It is this truth indeed which renders al most certain a fight to a finish be tween Mr Roosevelt and the trust controlled Republican national machine Mark Hanna the Boss of that machine has had Mr Roosevelt on his black books right along He has belittled him on occasions He opposed him for the vice presidential nomination Ho will try to defeat him in the Republican National Convention in 1904 Mr Roosevelts danger is great He is temperamentally too friendly to the people to be a Rephblidah After Mark Hanhas hekrt GO SIN NO MORE Rev Sam Small for many years an eloquent evangelist and an able writer and speaker on pub lic questions recently yielded to temptation and became intoxicat ed He is not the only one who has made that mistake but the fact that he had for years been a tetotaller and had won distinction as a minister of the gospel has made him the target for cruel jests and the victim of malicious criticism It is a sad commenta ry on human nature that those who themselves make no effort to set a good example are often prone to exult over the fall of one who is striving to follow a high ideal For two decades Mr Small led au exemplary life and rendered val uable service to his fellows and this service remains to his credit i if in an unguarded moment he has been overmastered by an appetite once strong but long suppressed let us be grateful for the good he has done charitable toward his re cent lapse and hopeful that he may yet have a long career of usefulness before him If none but the innocent were in the habit of casting stones at tho accused it would easier for the guilty to

need for it our citizens great and small rich and poor educated and illit orate young and old go out to battle shoulder to shoulder like brothers not because they love war or would make it a but because they love the princi ples for which our stands We are not a ing or people It is not in any measure or mission as a nation to raise a great army We want as few sol diers as possible President Roose velts remarks at in his speech before railroad men in which he dwelt on the excellent traing for the army there is in is the occasion for these reflections What the Pres ident said is quite true and it must have been pleasing to his auditors j but he seems like many other men who have won honors on the field of battle to over rate a Military education We need soldiers We also need undertakers

the llnpof the Rat way to Campbells vllle has been given to run the road through their farms The hitch be tween here and sane Valley has been gotten over It is now known through whose lands the road

formed and to this end it is necessary to know who will take capital stock In the enter prise Prof Azblll desires the News to say to its readers that subscriptions for stock may now be made Persons desiring to subscribe should call on or write to him at Columbia for further be two kinds of sued The Capital stock will be I nature of apermanent 1tbeI ment It will be issued in not less than live hundred dollars each It is quite likely that the shares of Capital stock will be one thousand dollars each The other kind of stock will be what are called debentures or preferred stock It will be issued in shares of not less than one hundred dollars each and will be just such an investment that of the capitalists who will furnish the main bulk of the funds with which the road will be built The object of issuing this form of stock will be to enable any of our own citizens who may desire to do so to take a substan tial part in the building and in the earnings of the Railway After a certain limit has been reach ed in bonafide subscriptions of stock to be paid for in cash subscriptions to be paid in work or materials to be used in the construction of the road will taken Here will be a chance for even a laborer to take a share or two while eaanlne wagesdurmgtbe construction- Mr Azbill said in his speech at the court house some days ago that the 1pletoincurred would incase the loan should be made by home capitalists remain in Adair and Taylor counties whereas if the money is obtained from else where the interest on the debt will go alwhere a very good reason REUNION AT RUSSELL SPRINGS The gathering of old soldiers at Bus sell Springs last Friday and Saturday recalled both pleasant and sad memo ries Since their last meeting many who have been accustomed to sit around camp fires annually and engage in relating war stories telling of hair breadth escapes have answered the uroll call up yonder and are free from the hardships that earthly strife necessarily brings It is the custom at these gatherings for the old soldiers to fall in line be counted and at each annual meeting the number grows smaller Twenty years duo a reunion of Federal soldiers brought a thousand men together now two hundred is considered a large number and as the years go by the ranks become thiuer evincing that they are fast passing from the stage of action The soldiers now living who fought on either side during the rebellion are growing old and stooped their earthly days at best being but few The soldiers of both the North and the South fought for what they conceived to be right were valiant and patriotic to their respective causes Ill fares they 1Budto hastening- ills a prey Where wealth accumulates and men decay Princes and lords may perish or may fader A breath can make them as a breath has made But a bold peasantry their countrys pride When once destroyed can never be supplied At this meeting about one hundred and seventyfive exsoldiers were pres ent and of this number but one who fought for the Southern cause was known to be there Judge W Stone of Monticello He addressed the throng Friday afternoon speaking patriotically of our reunited country and as he pictured the greatness of the union hats were lifted and cheers sent up for the speaker During the two days session national speeches were made by Capt John By Russell Hon H C Baker Eld TobtaS Huffaker Judge Vincent Borelng Hon M B6y Yarberry and others About five hundred persons attended each days session and all present were bountifully fed It was an casion of pleasure and will long be remembered The Bussell Springs Brass Band furnished the music The organization has only been practicing a short Uioebuttb yentertained admirably LELD AZBILLS SERMON These mon preached by Eld W KI Azblll last Sunday morning in the Christian church is the kind that ap peals to the thoughtful mind the kind that stimulates all the noble facultieS that reach out into the business world as well as in the spiritual It was di re ted against slothfulness and idle ness and is In the truest sense practi cably That idleness breeds troubles innummerable is apparent to all Its evil conseqUences havo been felt in ev cry community Industrious application to business each one to his pro fession or occupation constantly and everlastingly at it brings results that keep the wheels of progress moving Mr Azbiils discourse led film tosbow the duty of capital to tabor that the man of means should provide living employment for those willing to work Disposition on this was equal to the declaration that the greatest philan thropist is nut the one who dishes out gUts to the people but the one who opens up avenues of opportunities in the business world who provides profitable employment for the unemploy edThis is a sentiment a conviction in which we have long believed Wehave never been a believer in the philan thropy of one who has amassed wealth by shrewd business manipulation by cramping economical methods directed against labora reduction to the bare bread and meat game of his em ployed and then when the race of life Is nearly ended by reason of many years step to the front with magnfi Cent endowments for inslitutionsof learning establishing libraries or giv ing to public charities To our mind the greatest benefactor to the human race the greatest giver to his fellow man is he who opens up employment for those who need it those who must have it or bring distress and ruin to their homes In Mr Azbills sermon tnere is a broad field for thought and a Broader one for operation If you would help those who need help then give them profitable employment A giftof money or goods to one who is able to work is paralizlng to energy and death to ambition A gift of an op portunity to earn a living to buildup in the business world is inspiring and Impartsto the receiver the impulse that transforms the waste places of earth into lauds of beauty and profit To live in the narrow sphereof greed and selfishness to erect asa motto rigid economy stinginess Is but to ofIIn our community to practice his own teaching and none has a heartier wel come for him his teaching and his forts than we j The people of this town and county especially those along the proposed route ought to show the most liberal action within their power toward the building of the electric road Why should this be done Well as we see it for the following reasons It will increase the value of all property in close proximity It will furnish freight transportation at a much reduced rate both in and outopen up a market for many kinds of timber aud materials of this section now worthless it will give good quick and safe passenger trans portation and actually tie us on to the business world Why should any per son want damage for the right of way when the road will impart value to the property rather than detract Manya town and community have played the bluff game at their own loss The only safe way the only good business policy to advance the general interest where capital seeks development is to invite it and show a liberality equal to the emergency So far as we know no trouble will arise to check the building of the line from here to Campbells vllle Mr Azblll has carefully made aneye survey and made measurements of more than one route and finds but little if any difference in them The people who give the right of way will be the ones who will derive the most benefit from the road A surveyor wiilbe put to work in a short while and after the road is located your chance is gone Manya gallon of milk has been split poured out Many a good opportunity bas been rejected and only regrets to follow The people along the proposed routes should be at work Mrs Sarah Eo Montgomery wife of Mr June

Georgia Shelton ESTELLK WILLIS Sec FROMNEW YORK FORT TERRY N Y Sept 6 EDITOR NEWS Today at noon ended the maneuvers and inimical warefare between the two great branches of our National defense and although there Is a diversity of opinion between them as to the re sult it is universally conceded that as a test of the efficiency of the offensive and defensive strength of our Army and Navy it has been an unqualified success The weak points of both have been discovered and are found to be easily remedied Among the recent and wonderful in ventions adopted by the Government the telautograph which reproduces over the wires the actual handwriting of the sender and the telatypograph which reproduces the message in typewritten form have been proven of im mense practical value in actualser vice in fact the efficiency of the signal corps was a revelation The skill die played by both the forts and ship- were emarkable and it was demon strated that with the deadly accuracy of our artillerymen in placing their shots where most effective the strongest any foreign power would send could not run the gauntlet of these forts without being destroyed There seems to be an idea in a great many mind that the vast expense entailed in these maneuvers is a useless expenditure of public money and would not be warranted by any practical result and yet such a display of naval strength and defensive ability i the surest guarantee of peace and ty as well as an inducement to commercial prosperity If there is a necessity at all for military force this country can afford to have none but the best and that can only be determined by actual test and experienceWe looking forward and hoping for that sweet millennium when all people shall be atpeaceandharmo- ny shall reign throughout christen dom We can then take our big guns and turn them into plows but until tqat dream is realized we shall con tinue in that strenuous race for premacy and all patriotic citizens should by their sanction support and
