advocated the passage of a school book bill So im pressed was the chief executive with the importance of this measurecheap books better books and uniform books for the children of Kentucky that he sent in a special message to the legislature urging that a school boo bill be placed upon the statute book- What was the result His pleadings were ignored and he was summarily slaughtered in what should have been the house of his friends This same legislature also repealed the McCain tobacco bill If the legislature will not harken to the public voice Inso vital a matter as a school book law what assurance is there that it will listen to any cal 1ed fora revision in favor of the grower and against the giant tobacco trust of tobacco laws If It will not remedy an evil that is yearly costing the pa ents and children of its state a haIr mlllon dollars what reason is there that it should obey the voice of the to bacco farmer Strong and powerful and far reaching as the school boo trust it Is

confined to certain states of the union the tobacco trust ramifies all throug- the civilized world The grower- the warehousemen and the govern should ponder the situation long and well before calling

reversed the decision of the Scott Circuit Court in the case of Caleb Powers charged with complicity in the Goebel assassination conspiracy and remanded the case for a new trial The chief ground for reversal was the failure of Judge Cant rill to vacate the bench after the filing of the defendants affidavit claiming that Judge Cantrill was prejudiced against him The ad mission of certain evidence is also held to be in error The opinion was prepared by judge ORear The dissenting Judges did not file a minority opinion and probably will not write one A story was sent out f om Guatemala to the

wife at Stanford last Spring They had been residing there but a short time coming from Ball county Hookers plea was selfdefense He claimed his wife attacked him with a razor The reduction of the tariff would be wholly ineffective to curb the trusts says the President more over the diversion of our efforts in such a direction would mean the abandonment of all intelligent at tempt to do away with these evils This unique proposition can only proceed upon the theory that we are weakly unable to do more than one thing at a time We are a great bigoountry and have a great big Congressbut any old theory will dp for the purpose of subordinating the tariff Some times a man gets a new trial once too often Watch the Caleb Powers case His own teems timony had much to do inrcon yipting him twice and there is not likely tb be any change in it Be sidea the State announces that it has new and damaging evidence which will be introduced at the wit trial I rT r In the Federal Court at London J J MoKenna and JBRyanw- ere sentenced two years in the penitentiary and fined 200 each on the charge of preventing neg roes from voting in Lexington in 1000 We do not knowthe methods by which these men prevented negroes from voting but presume that as in other cases tried in the FederaWJburt in this State they gave the negroes money td stay away from the polls We not in dorse coercion in any form nor bribery under any circumstances but in a State like this where both political parties use money to buy votes directly and indirectly where any and all kinds of deals are made to secure votes we are frank to say that such trials and such punishment as inflicted on MoKenna and Ryan is not intend ed to purify politics nor to protect negro suffrage It is done in qur judgment merely to intimidate aggressive Democratic workers to keep hands off while the Re publican politicians and their heelers vote the negroes without opposition It is a travesty on justice a mock of honesty and a contemptible method to advance political rather than moral in terests We have never been able to see why it is a greater sin or crime for a Democrat to buy a negro vote or hire him to stay from the polls than for a Republican to pay cash and drench him with whisky to secure his ballot Yet in the Federal Courts Demo orate are held to answer for their sins while Republican debauohers coerce and buy the negro and white man with impunity We believe in fair playequal rights to all and exclusive privil eges to none If MoKenna and Ryan were the only transgressors or if any active political worker could come out and before God and man say he was not a party to bribery or other methods equal ly bad politically to aid his par ty then we would say away with these transgressors let them be orusified j but the average man is guilty alike in both parties We have all gone asty and therefore we dislike such methods the guilty prosecuting and persecuting the guilty If such action was in tended to purify politics it was meant to protect the timid or to keep the strong from oppressing the weak in any of his inaliena ble or legal rights we would heartily indorse it but under the plea of protecting negro suffrage for the purpose of advancing the in terest ef a political party is disgusting contemptible low and dity It is not our intention to criticise the Federal Court in this State so much as the action of lo cal political rings and the cliques who seek this avenue to bring ter ror and inaction on the part of their common political adversa ries The Court may be discharg ing its duty but the strange part of it is that only Democrats have been prosecuted while Republicans are allowed to use corrupt methods buy and practically coerce the negro into the support of their party We are not inclined to be lieve that these trials are insitut ed in defence of the 14th amend ment but to advance political in terests of a party willing to use any methods to gain strength The President looked down on Congress last week and delivered a message beautiful in English but meaningless in point of directing those sages how to stear the old ship of state Mr President states some facts and conditions and di rects congress to do and not to do many things but he fails to outline and specific legislation by which dangers are to be avoided or blessings to be received He tells them to be wise not to destroy protoo tion but tear up the bad trusts and be cautious not to harm the good ones He says trusts are not ohildren of protection Ho says a more elastic currency is needed but it would be unwise to attempt to reconstruct our financial sys temHe calls attention to the conflict between Capital and La bor but advises cautious action In our judgment his message is one of the best rhetorically Overdo livered to congress but it would take the Supreme Court with the ablest council fully twelve months to determine whether he means any thingcertiain or whether he is simply bidding far the goodwill and active support of Capitaland Labor the Protectionist and the Revisionist the Positive and Neg ative of llcwtioon Hes prob ably hunting larger lethni r 1- 7 4 The LaRue County Herald one of our most valued exchanges has changed its form to a six column eight page paper and is now able to furnish more reading matter The Herald is edited by a practi cal newspaper man whose writings are wholesome showing thought arid intellectuality The Marion Falcon another excellent paper has made the same change These two publications deserve the arge patronage they are receiving and we trust that the business of each will be increased The President in his message says our past experience shows that great prosperity in this coun try has always come under a pro tective tariff In 1896 quite a a number of Democrats joined the Republican party in its efforts too save the country from the ruinous effects of free silver They did not believe in protection and now the President claims that it is not the Standard but the policy that measures good to man The new converts only had one eye open and that was the the wrong one The present short session of Congress will be a do nothing body The tariff and the trusts that are effecting the masses more than any thing else will move along in the same old rutrob bing the people to pay combines etc It will be remembered that A B

two weeks During her illness she had the best medical attention in the county and was closely watched by her devoted husband affectionate daughter and friends Several years ago she united with the

JamestownEld A H Baugh officiat ing a the religious exercises A large concourse of relatives and friends were present to pay their respects to the beloved dead and to extend the hand of sympathy and

Maccabees Seven or eight years ago Mr Elkins en rout to this town was in the wreck on the stage near this place and was severely hurt He was brought to Columbia in an uncon scious condition but his Masonic pin Indicated that he was a Mason and consequently the members of the order In this town rendered all the aid with in their power to relieve him of pain and to save his life In his speech last Saturday night he referred to the kind attention given him and thecourteous and brotherly interest given his wife in this sad and unexpected accident in the midst of total strangers His tribute to Masonry was Indeed grati fying to Masons and his expression of thanks to the order here should make every Mason feel proud that he is a member of the order and should remind us that our highest and noblest privi lige is to render aid to the distressed It should remind us that Masonic charity and brotherly love should pre vail and when in the providence of God we c a n render aid to a distressed brother that we will have the happy consolation of knowing that our chari ty will be appreciated Rev John James who was pastor of the Baptist Church at this place for many years and a man respected and loved by all denominations for his sterling Christian character and zeal for God died at Paris Texas the 22d of last August A letter to Ref W B Cave from his daughter brings this news He was 87 years old and to his dying hours he expressed love for the people of Adair county Mr J D Sharp of Amandavllle who is a prominent farmer and stock trader was in Columbia last Monday He reports that all classesof business good on Crocus and a good tide in the river A great deal of lumber and staves are being shipped and a number of bunches of stuck have recently been loaded for market Hogs are

completed his calculations and that the papers would be forwarded in a few days It is now believed that a definite statement as to the cost of the road etc will be placed in the hands of capitalists in the next few weeks YrEP Hopewell who has been a citizen of Columbia for the past two years has removed to Cane Valley and will engage IB farming Beis ad ex cellent gentleman and we take pleas ore

railway fnm ColtmWa to Camp belkllle w Ar1LL- r 1 t f THE RAILROAD Fir several months the people in this section have felt an Interest in the building of an Interurban Electric line from this place Campbellsviile and It is well known that Mr W K Azbill is promoting this enterprise Many are the questions asked by peo ple who feel an interestin the success of Mr Azbills undertaking and in or der to keep the readers of the News posted on this work representative of this paper called on Mr Azbill for such Information as the people are entitled to know He said in substance the following I have had the route surveyed and expect an estimate of the cost of grading within a few days My chief gineer informed me that it wpuld be exceedingly light compared with the average lines in similar countries and that the grade would not be as heavy as many steam lines are forced to use In other words my engineer was won derfully pleased with the grade and the cost of making it I have secured the right of way from all parties terested except three or four In this county and a like number in Taylor county Some of these have given ev idence that they will grant the con cessions asked butat this writing have not yet done so The parties stand ing out for damages will not be hurt by the building of the road and I feel certain that no serious trouble will arise tram this source I am now ready to organize a company and take sub scription for stock As to the building of the road I have no doubt but one of the most important features of any en terprise of this kind is the control I do not desire out side control I want our people to build own and control this line and enjoy its profits We can do this and I would regret very mucn should it be otherwise I think we ought to capitalize cur company at not less than 823000 or not necessarily more than 850000 I firmly believe that the people of this section knowing the importance of this enterprise and acquainted with the great possibilities of the road will not hesitate to put their money In the stock of the company We can get all the money necessary when we have done our part You may say to your readers that I am ready to receive subscriptions that we will likely place the shares at 8100 each From the above It Is readily under stood that Mr Azbill Is the right man in the right place He has worked faithfully for several months and it Is to be regretted that any party along the route surveyed will place an ob struction across his ways to secnre the buildingof this road so vastly impor tant to this entire country It should have all the encouregement and aid within our power The party who fuses to give the right of way when the road brings value to his holdings is fighting the Interest of his country and seeking to extort from an enterprise that which does not rightfully long to him If the building of the road brings to a farm more value than its rlghtof way is worth or the damage by reason of its encroachments on the premisesIn question then no jury should allow damage and it is not like ly that such would be done We trtst that all parties will grant this enterprise the only favor asked that no man will attempt to light the Interest of the whole country for a few paltry dollars Now Is the time to show whether you want the road now is the time for you to act It you can spare any money then come and sub scribe for some stock If you want a good profitable Investment this is the thing Our traveling representative was at Liberty the first two days of the Casey circuit court meeting many friends of the News He found the people in that busy town generally well and Hon Geo E Stone especially happy another son having been born unto his wife The Infant was christened J Boyle Stone and it

bend every nerve to get the new electric line to run to this city Instead of trying to block it We cannot afford to do without it at any cost The time has come in the history of Taylor county when it must get every thing that comes along to keep In the procession We can get this line by simply reaching out after comparatively and mark our words if we dont get this road it will not be ten years
