room of urhe Little Red Building where the bloody murder of William Goebel is said to have been plotted and arranged I saw the grave of the victim in the Frankfort cemetery this afternoon still unmarked by stone or scroll and undistlnguisbable from hundreds of others save by those who loved him in life and yet seek out his resting place in death The farther the pub lie mind gets away from this asassl nation the more brutal coldblooded and horrible the crime stands out lOne or two things Is certain Willta Goebel was either killed Ina cool In human determination to defeat his election to the governorship at all costs and hazards or his murder was the culmination of a damnable con bpi racy to rid the state of him that certain Interests Joined hands with the republicans in carrying to its trag ic ending Of WilllamlGoeDel himself there is only left a sorrowful memory and the duty that justice owes to the good name of the state Out of those who compassed his death and slew the man they could neither use nor intim idate only onea weak fool propably the least guilty of a scoreIs behind yeteMark these words and see what the next twelve months bring forth The manhunt the assassinhunt the hunt for the murderers of William Goebel has not yet really begun Ere the snow Hies before advancing spring there will be aratttliug of drybones that will shake the commonwealth from one end to the other and the world will stand aghast at the horrors of the tale that is told Men in high places will pray for the mountains to Tall upon or lice to the mount to save them and the long arm of stern un relenting justice will reach up and drag them down to the doom awaiting them and that should be meted out to all criminals There will be much and grave business transacted in the

season of 1002 is a tbioof the past Kentucky and Lb kentuckians will begin toprepare to the State campaign of 1003 What the Republicans expect to or not to do concerns us little for the Republican party has made a wretched mess of its opportunities andas mat ters stand is unlikely to show up for a long time within the bounds of the dark and bloody ground except as purveyor of outside pressure and a dispenser of Federal patronage mFor the present at least she Democrats have a sure thing and as th CourierJournal would confirm and pr010 thlsuay as its highest as piratitn is to have Kentucky serum- its old place at the head of the Demo cratic councilboard in National policies a leader and lawgiver and not a follower no effort will be spared by it to give effect to that popular volition that trend of enlightened and conserv ative movement to which we owe redemption from embittered faction ism with its incidents of bigotry au the woods are full of Democratic aspirants The State Conven- tIOn which Is to sit upon and decide the claims of these will have no lack good material to choose from Itshoul- go without saying that the Courier Journal takes no part in any antecon ventiofl contests It will not favor one candidate over another candidate Holding the scales as evenly balanced as possible it will ad interim wis well to all of them in each instance hoping the best man will win When the ticket is named whoever compose e it it will do Its best to elect it Inevitably we may look for a very active perhaps an excited canvass Where there are so many places to be filled rival interests mainly personal would under any state of case lend ani matton to the event Let us hope the several conflicts will be kept within the bounds not merely of decency and order but of sound Democracy The Democrats at large the ran and file of the people behind the aspi rants should take care of this They should see that no personal interest i put above the public interest that no individual pretcntlonis allowed to ex ceed and obscure the right of the or ganization to a clean bill of lading If they do we shall get together as in days gone by like friends and brothers and go to the voters who are to determine the final result equally triumph ant and untied With these few prefatory remarks the CourierJournal saps io each and every Democrat good luck anal God bless you Allot us cannot sit in high places All of us may not get the capital prizes But there Is no one of us how lowly bii lot who cannot be ha choose a good Kentuckian and a good Democrat sinking his own

action oflthe Democratic party The discussion of the proposed new school at this place ought to bring to the mind of all those who desire a better education or who are contemplating entering the Spring examinations a realization of the fact that they can not af ford to wait but should at once enter the school now here There is a mistaken idea that when one has received a certificate for one or more years that nothing should be done to continue the improve ment but that he will wait until the fear of failure in another ex amination forces him to again re sume his studies If you are in earnest about securing an educa tion the only way to succeed is to continue thb good work Do not drop out for five months think ing you will make it up later but push on until you are satisfied The value of a five months waste in the midst of the time when preparing oneself for the work of life can not be well estimated You teachers who are not satisfi ed to be second or third class teachers now is the time to enter tfce best school that has been con ducted in Columbia for twenty years It is not necessary for you to leave the county but enterhere You young gentlemen and young ladies who ara not satisfied to go through life handicapped and em barrassed by an incomplete education are offered an opportunity to improve your time and to pre pare yourselves for the great battle of life which confronts you Enter school with the determina tion to succeed right now and when the years work is finished you may go to your home satisfied that you have added rounds to the ladder by which in afterlife you will climb to success Grover Cleveland is evidently a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency It is hoped that he may not be selected for a great many reasons and especially these two He is not regarded as being sound polit ically and even if he is it is not good policy to nominate a man for the third term Give us a man who is a tariff reformer and is in favor of busting the trusts and who upon all occasions votes the Democratic ticket J M McKnight the bank wrecker was sentenced to serve six years in the penitentiary by Judge Evans last Wednesday This is

24000 as an endowment from the will of Mrs Wilson We are now advised that the amount be queathed by Mrs Wilson is 6000 We were justified in making our former statement as this informa tion was taken from the Louisville papers purporting to publish her will correctly The Educational Board only promised an eidow ment from this source of 10000 but when the papers announced that it was 24000 quite an intern est was manifested on the part of all interested in securing building and maintaining the school We now receive our information from members of the Educational Board who state that the amount as set forth in the will was misread and that the Louisville pa pers were not wholly at fault This information brings no en couragement to the friends of the proposed institution but it also fails to bring any great amount of discouragement to those who are familiar with the strong finan cial backing this school already has in other funds safely and ju diciously invested We feel that the Conference or rather the Ed ucational Board will adjust this matter and be able to put up ev ery dollar as set forth in their proposition made to the people of this section We know that this school has the active and earnestsupport and good will of every member of the Louisville Conference It has an interest in an endow ment fund of nearly 40000 be sides the gift of Mrs Wilson It has the most enthusiastic moral support both at home and abroad of any similar institution in the entire State It would take a revolution in sentiment and effort to seriously cripple it or to destroy- it In justice to all who are inter ested in securing the school we make the above candid statement and ask you to put yourselves to the wheel and help us secure the necessary amount needed to close the contract at an early day We can not afford to to lose the school We cannot afford to allow this matter to drag or our courage to flag in the least acJcomplished ments and much worry but all will be abundantly repaid in mak ing this a go The good results will decend to future generations Now is the time to act RespectfullyJ Chair T R STULTS Sec T E PAULL JAMES GABNETT JR N M TUTT T A MURRELL ZM

completed last Thursday morning He says the re port of the Engineer will not be ready for a week but that several very important facts may beglven to the public with certainty The distance by the Robinson creek route is eighteen miles from corpora tion to corporation and the whole line from the lot selected for the passenger depot here to the L N depot is 19 miles From EW Reeds lot to the one on which tile Campbellsvllle station will probably be built the dis tance is exactly 100000 feet or 1000 chaInsIFrom the place chosen for the power plant at Green river Campbellsville nine miles the grade will average not more than thirty feet to the mile and the cost of grading will be go little as to greatly reduce the average cost per mile In construction There are even miles at a stretch that will cost less than 1000 per mile to grade There will be no grade on the line heavier than 70 feet to the mile which will make It easily possible to use a steam engine for the freight traffic if of the right of way is more hopeful Only two or three land owners of considerable importance still refuse to make the concession The indifference of the Campbells ville merchants in general and the down right opposition of a number of the citizens of our neighboringicity Is operating to increase the sentiment in avorof the route through Casey coun ty to the Southern road A move is already on foot to seriously take up the matter to view the proposed route and to ascertain what the citizens of Casey and Lincoln counties and the merchants of Cincincinnati will be willing to do in aid of that outlet A CARD The time has come when those who Intend to enter school for the ensuing five months must decide what school they will attend Therefore it will not be amiss in me as principal of the M F High School to make a few briefjstatements about it For the past half century the M F High School has been the center of education for the Green and Cumberland river country Within its walls our fathers and mothers were educated and there many of us the younger generation have ceived that instruction which hts us for the duties and responsibilities of life although it has done much for the cause of education in the past Yet we enter upon this the 47tb year of its existence with even greater usefulness The enrollment now is larger than it has been for a decade past Those in attendance are there for one purpose advancement The enrollment after the holidays for the term beginning Januarys promises to be the largest in the history of the institution A corps of teacher will be in charge who will spare no pains to advance those who are in attendance We invite all who desire to prepare for college or who desire to teach or who seek a higher education to enter at once Give us an opportunity to help you TYLEEABAKEE Every thinking person In Columbia should have heard Eld W K Azbills sermon delivered at the Baptist church last Sunday evening He spoke upon the life and character of Judas Iscarlt delivering a strong logical discourse There is a diversity of opinion as to whether Judas ate with the twelve apostles but Eld Azbill made it very plain that he did partake of the bread and wine The speaker further stated that while he ate he did not commune because his spirit was not in touch with God It was further stated that Judas did not belleveat the time he accepted the thirty pieces of silver that he would betray the Savior He loved the son of God and his Idea was that nothing he could do would have any effect upon him There is scarcely a week but one or more young men of Adair or from some adjoining county take the hack at Co lumbia and start west to make their fortune It islaudlble for young men to want to come up in the world but the question is can they do better on some other mans farm than the one that is owned by their father There is no excuse for young men who are after work to leave this section The lands here are up to the average and there are plenty to sell and to lease Another thing young men certainly feel more independent working upon the home place than they would were they hired to an outsider Stay at home This count ry is all right A representative of the News was at Jamestown and Russell Springs last week He found the people at the former place very much Interested in the oil outlook for Russell Adair and other counties in this section of the State A foreign company will erect fifty rigs in these countlesln the near future and if there Is oil below the surface lt will be found He found the business and professional men of Russell Springs jetting along nicely There was a good trade in town and Uncle Dan Wilson Son were get ting thelrshare They have a very inviting house in which todo business and handle a very

that Admiral Dewey ever treated the Filipinos as allies it is rather surprising to see the govern ments attorneys submit a brief to the United States supreme court in which they declare quite the contrary to be true This remarkable reversal of the governments policy Is caused by the necessity of trying to keep Admiral Dewey and his officers and men from collecting the prize money claimed by them because of the seizure after the battle of Manila of a number of Fili pino canoes and flat boats This is the language of the govern ments brief liAs soon as the present llbellants force was able to land and establish itself on shore it entered into friendly relations with the Filipinos and provided them with arms for offensive and defensive operations against the Spaniards To treat some of the Filipinos as friends and allies and to treat others of them as enemies mere ly because they happened to be In the possession of small craft which might be of use to the United States was cer tainly not a consistent course of action and should not be upheld by a courtNeither is it a consistent course of action for that matter for the government to deny as it has on all previous occasions that the Filipinos were ceived as allies by Dewey and later to declare that they were treated lias friends and allies A supreme court decision in accordance with the gov ernments latest contention

Brother Atkins gave his heart to God in the morning of life and united with Methodist Episcopal Church South and remained in the same until death came October 15 1002 when we trust God transferred him to the Church tri umphantaboveHe afflicted for several months before he died but was pa tient and expressed himself as be ing ready for his heavenly homo and as he drew near the last river he was full of peace and passed away trusting sweetly in Jesus It was my privilege to live near him four years and I can truth fully say that my intimacy with him did not weaken my confidence in his piety but strengthened it He was a kind good man and had many friends His wife who lives to mourn her loss was very faith ful to her husband and though much grieved by his death she is full of hope and looks forward to the glad day when she shall see her husband again clad in the gar ments of immortality May God comfort her heart and bless the son and family and reunite all at last in heaven JESSE L
