candidates nominated In this district by the double convention and appoint a method of settlement It has been the practice of the committee in such cir cumsunces to order a Primary to effect a settlement of such muddles Un doubtedly this would be the must sat isfactory course to pursue at the pres lotMany Democrats would consider it francommittees part to declare the nomU nees directly A candidate would hardly wish to receive a nomination a Judicial office from a State Com mittee unless compelled to do so A settlement by such procedure would Indeed be the reverse of Demo cratic doctrine and would seta dan gerous precedent It would result in making the State Committee the court of final resort in all like disputes In such an event ambitious candidates with a strong pull in the committee might be only too glad of a dispute which would make a settlement necessary before the commltttee whose members would constitute a friendly and prejudiced and morever badly formed court If the State Central Committee should in the present instance initiate the practice of declaring the nominee that act would be little short of an powerOOnomlnate and to lodge that power in the committee itself As a matter of fact it is difficult to see how that body has any more to do with the declaring of or making of such nominations which amount to about the same thing than it has to do with regulating the procession of the cqninoxes A plan involving a precedent the concesequences of which must be so serious will hardly be adopted by the committee It is much more likely that the disputed nominations will be submitted to the people to be voted on in a primary a course Indicated by and established usageDan lle Advocate A Michigan man who has a wellde ve loped conscience has

great anguish on account of the act and wouldnt know any peace until he had paid his car fare on that occasion He thought the beginning of the new year a proper time to make his conscience clear All over this fair land to day nd in every part of it there are hun dreds of subscribers to weekly papers who have beat the publishers of the same out of honest labor and hard earned dollars If the

Frankfort Jan 121903Hen- ry Youtaey one ot the convicted assassins of Governor Goebel was before the Franklin grand jury several hours last Saturday and it is reported will again be examined today Of course the secrets of the grand jury room are closely guardedfor Judge Cantrell has a somewhat summary manner of stopping grand jury leaks by slapping the leaker in jailbut beyond doubt the statement made by the convict was a moat sensational- one and fastens the noose around several necks Commonwealths lesInsaid that Yontsey lays bare the sefororets of a conspiracy assassinate reaching from among the highest officials of the State down to the actual thtriggerhave left the state verifying their guilt by their absence Jim How ard is declared to have fired the fatal shot This IS about as far as is at present considered healthy to attempt to peer into the secrets of the grand jury room and if Judge Cantrell believed that even this m utuchboth that individual and myself would be given ample opportunIty- to inspect the interior of the Franklin county jail The general opinion is that Yontaeys confession if anything like so specific and complete aa rumored marks the beginning of the end of the story of the foulest assassination staining the history of the State Now that the enterI ingwedge ia fairly driven home the accused will not muoh longer stand together There will be urrying for cover and a multiplicity of States evidence if the Commonwealths Attorney so de sires When thieves fall out honest men get their dues How muoh more does this apply to the most infamous of all murderers the assassin The coward who hides himself and slays his victim will not allow his own precious neck to be broken so long as he can save it by breaking somebody elses neck If none of thevmur defers of William Gcebel barring the unavoidable delaya of justice are hanged before frost falls upon the winter of 1943 =4 then they willnever be hanged For there is evidence in plenty nowmoreI than ever beforeand there ia more to follow And if Jim How ard and Caleb Powers are not regretting that they have been given new trials it ia because they do not know the substance of Yout says confession But the real assassins of Wil Goebel the brains that in ptigated that bloody deed and urg it relentlessly forward to its tragic culminationwill never be known until the very bottom is digged down to and the parties who suggested the special train that bore the murderers to Frank fort are uncovered Not even Jim Howard is as guilty as those fiends who sitting book in darkness pushed forward their weak tools and dupes to do their horrible workJ M R in Glasgow Times THE ELDER BOOTH An old retired actor and manager in Baltimore had been for some tuft and as ho was held in high esteem his friends arranged for him a complimen ary testimonial at the Holllday Street theater Junius Brutus the older Booth was at that time manager of another and unsolicited tended a benefit at his establishment to

kiss be gives his mother A Chicago Judge is somewhat of this samejoplnion He judged two boys less from the evidence given by wit ses than from tbe evidence presented by themselves in their treat iof their mothers In court One boy whom the Judge decided go to a reformatory tenderly kissed his mother goodbye sinking his own misfortune in sympathy with the sorrow of his mother The Judge boked on and instantly decided that there was enough good In that boy to enable him and his mother to work out salvationAt moment another boy whom the same Judge had announced would probably go free glanced meanly at his mother who sat weeping and started to walk out That boy will go to the reformatory This Judge has only applied common sense in interpretation of tbe law Perhaps few Judges take the trouble to do it But it is worth while The boy against whom the evidence seemed conclusive but in his extremi thought first of his mothers sorrow- sha good stuff in him In sending him back home with that mother the Judge sent him to the best reformatory In the world It was no chance kiss People do not do thing by chance at crucial moments It was then that all the ale ments In ones character became stim ulated to the highest tension and the resultant act indicates the real char a boy may yield to temptations Bad companionship may lead him into trouble But so long as the love of mother remains his

H HEN KIXQER Wayne county a candidate for the office of State Treasurer subject to the oflthe Democratic party There are a few Democrats scat tered throughout the State who are not mindful of the partiep welfare and a few Democratic edi tors who are willing to aid in keep tug alive the issues that have been settled by the regular constituted party authorities The manner of selectingour candidates for State offices discussed well and thoroughl prior to the meeting our party committee empowered to determine the manner plat and date of making our ticket W felt at liberty to present our views as in our judgment would best serve our partsy good and giv all aspirants a fair and equal chance in a free and untrammeled but possibly a spirited rivalry for the various official positions within the gift of our par by We favored a convention and gave our reasons for it but when the committee decreed that the ballot route should be tried we accepted the decision and covered our dis likes and objections with the cloak ofsilence Since that time no new light has dawned to remove our objections to a primary but we recognize that party authority ie paramount to individual preference that our legally constituted committees must be sustained iu their decisions when in the dis charge of such duties imposed by the party It is not a question now as to which is tho better plan it is immaterial whether we like 01 dislike the manner of making our ticket The committee could not please the advocates of both sides There are many good reasons to warrant the primary plan and no man knows what a State pHm may be worth to our party ari3mf one can measure its hurtful operations if it should prove wrong It is an experiment with us in this State and as a Democrat who de sires our partys good we accept it and trust that it will prove a blessing We see no reason why the convention advocates should keel up a howl and know of no excuse for their persistency in following tho shadow of a departed party tom ofselecting party candidate- sIt can do no good to our party it cannot overthrow the decree neith or can it do the advocate any good unless he prides in being always the other side ot every thing It is time for such troubles to end and they should end by ignoring the chronic kickers pleas Music Hall is not forgotten and a de mandof a great majority of our party for a more satisfactory mak ing of a ticket has led to the pri mary Bring out the candidates and let tho voting proceed It will bo a Democratic content J B Matthowl of Somerset who was Assistant Secretary of

aqd affiliating with a certain Meth odist church of that City of Brotherlyand Sisterly Love made a mistake in proposing to place a memorial window in the church commerorative of the vir tues of Winnie Davis the Daugh ter of the Confederacy The pas tor broadminded battlescar red veteran of the Grand Army of the Republic and humble consci entious follower of the Christ made a graver one when he accept ed the suggestion rind entered in to purposes by divine inspiration under the impression that any thing but bigatory can be found 1in a Philadelphia church There are churches in the North which no doubt would have seiz ed upon the opportunity to exem plify one of the highest precepts of the God of their worship but not one of them is located in Phil adelphia That city is a Nazareth out of which verily no true religion or honest effort of politics ever came Notloug since a memorial win dow in that church was dedicated to the memory of the Martyred President McKinley who worshipped there when in Philadelphia as did Miss Winnie Davis It was an appropriate tribute to the vir ture of a great and good man j it was placed with elaborate ceremo lies to stand for the religious side of his character In his preliminary sermon or talk the pastor reverting to the manner of the Presidents death admonished the con gregation that they were placing the memorial in a temple sacred to theieachings of Him whose it is and that unless they were inspired by those teachings their action was sacrilege rather than fraught with good plainly implying that the spirit of forgiveness of the as casein who had paid the penalty cf his crime must combine with their veneration of the piety of the dead President The congregation accepted the admonition bowed reverently in prayer andeither forgave Czolgosz or stultified their souls on their knees Then came the suggestion to place a small window as a memo rial to a dead girl who devoutly and modestly sought that shrine when in the oily The pastor who had come to reverence the lofty character sand beautiful faith of tJleJme as one Con tribute to the weight of evidence showing the reinstallmentof good feeling in church circles at least between the North and 8ieath The proposition was received with a storm of protests frora these stul tified Pharisees of Philadelphia rind the preacher was overborne The hypocritical imps of the devil could forgive tb e being who so cowardly mnrdeed the great and good McKinley or else to pose in a sacred function they perjured th ir immortal souls at the very foot of the crassbat they cannot forgive a dead girl whose one fault was that she was born the daughter of the leader of the ill fated Lost Cause While regretting the incident as having its orgin in theilladvised action ofa few Southern ladies the dear old sunny south will wor ry little over it It knows that t he bigatory and manevolence of the Quaker City congregation rep resents the religious and patriotic sentiment of that city alone Win nie Davis the Daughter of the Confederacy is in shrined in every Southern heart Winnio Davie the pure and sweet Southern Christian girl is enshrined in every Christian heart North and South There are no such Christians in Philadelphia 1All honor all praise to the mem ory of that noble and matchless girl Winnie Davisthe still un crowned queen of the South whose memory will ever

John C Calhoun John B Russell Talbert Humphress D A Taylor W F BChatmanValentiue Sherrill Mr John McFarland of Rowena called at the News office last Saturday forenoon and related the following concerning the industries in his locali Kyle Bros whose headquarters at Cellna Tenn are cutting timber off the land they recently bought from Mr J P Miller this county paying 82235 for the boundary They have already sent out nine rafts seven cedar and two poplar It is estimated that they will realize nine thousand dollars for the timber now on the market They have about as much more to cut off the same tract This has been a very paying deal for Kyle Bros but when the land was sold Mr Miller received what he considered a good price Another industry that is bringing Ina great deal of money is the tie business An agent from Indiana representing a firm in that State is making contracts and putting large number of hands to work cut ting timber for this purpose These ties will be shipped to Burnside and to Indiana Mr McFarland related a novel way of catching fish He states that when the water in Cumberland river is low and the pearling season is on fine carp red orse and blue cat are caught in the manner The pearlhunters lines to their legs dropping lr hooks into the river and as the boats move o ver the water the occu pants grabbing muscles the fish swallow the bait on the hook and are lifted into the boat In this manner sixty- and seventy pounds are caught during day At the suggestion of certain of the citizens of Campbellsville Mr Azblll several days of last week In the vicinity of that place surveying anew route into the town It was found hat the proposed route Is a little shorter but that the grade Is imprac ticable as It would require a climb of 129 feet in less than a mile But Mr Azbill took occasion while there to make an amendment to the survey which will Improve the formerI and slightly shorten the hundred feet and removes someot the objections of the land ownersalong the line He says that the business men of Campbellsville with a few exceptions favor the rood and he thinks that all bad rather have the road than to see it go elsewhere Mr TU Paull druggist and Mr Frank Sinclair general merchant both of this place received some conscience money a few days ago The letter to Mr Panic contained twenty cents and the writer stated that years ago he had stolen a taunt oysters from his store and that he desired to return the price thereof as the theft had given him much trouble Tho writer of Mr Sinclairs letter stated that he had stolen a ten cent French harp from hIs store and that his conscience forced him to make restitution Fourteen cents were enclosed The two letters were mailed at a postoffice- In Metcalfe county No name was signed but they were evidently wrItt- en by the same person Our paragraph in regard to the offer from Spurllngton to contribute largely to secure tho electric road has awakened a lively interest throughout this county and many are asking for furth er particulars about the offer the distance and the possibility of it The distance from RobInsons creek to Spurlington would be no greater than from Campbellsville probably About four miles would beadded to the length of the line The cost of construction would be about an average of the cost uer mile of the rest of the line If the report is true that the Spurllngton people will raise 830000 for the sake of getting the terminus the thing is possible iMr W J Page this place who was in Louisville last week met with a very painful accident The streets were covered with ice making it almost Impassable for persons to stand upon their feet Mr Page was enroute from the depot jo the stockyards when he sUpped and fell his face strik ing the pavement cutting a small place upon the side of his head aci- dfearfullyblackiogoneofhiseyes The bruised blood Is now disappearing and In a few aays Mr Page will look him self again The same day thi acct dent occurred a number dfi persons incLoyiavillemet the same fate nivi 1eBto THE ELECTRIC LINE 9Someing Campbellsville We have felt quite an interest in the building of the In terurb3fs LEicctilc line from this town 10 the L N Railroad and have had an abiding faith in the ability cour age and honesty of its promoter We still have no doubt as to his fitness for the work and his ability to accomplish It but we are here tosay that a great deal of unnecessary work and worry have been given him and that by people who could share in the good which would come from the road Mr Azblll has had an eye on Campbells vllle he has together with a large percent of our people believed it to be the logical terminus of the road and following his own views he has used all honorable means to get such concess ions as would enable him to build the line into that city In a conversation with him yesterday he informed us that the way was not yet clear and while a good number of the business men of that thrifty town were doing all within their power to aid the enter prise yet there are some so indifferent and exacting as to discourage the idea of making that the terminus One man through whose land the road must pass demands 25000 per acre and yet he admits that the road adds to the value of the landnot taken Now we are not Inclined to advise and we trust that the following will not beso construed but In the face of such opposition and discouragements as are presented at that end of the route we can not see any just reasons to force the road Into that town until all other practical routes have been exhausted True we have favored Campbellsville as the proper place to reach the railroad We favored it be cause it is our regular railroad point because itis a thrifty town and further we believe that the people would open their arms and unlock their purse to aid the enterprise We regret that opposition still confronts It and while we dislike to give up Campbellsville as the terminus yet we need the road and must have it Greensburg Is on the same railroad CampbellsvilleMr Azbllls attention to the fact that Greensburg ought to be considered We further notify the people of Greensburg that they skunk now take in the situation They should think of the worth of such allner to their town and truly we can see nothing for Columbia to lose We can not see wliy the road would not be as profitable to Greensburg as to Campbellsville and in our judgment that town should be given an oppurtu nity to get it We want the road built and we are not particular as to what point just so it reaches the ralfrpad We can see no Impropriety in testI- ng this matter and then take the route that offers the best and most substantial inducements In our judgement now is the time lor the people of Greensburg and Green Coup ty to determine what they are willing to do and we close by saying to the business interests of Campbellsville that the proper time to strike is while the iron is hot Again we desire to say to the people of SpurlIngton who are bidding for the road that we favor Greensburg next to Campbellsville and in fact do not care which town secures it but this is due only to the fact that Greensburg has a population over Spurlington which would result in good to the road At any rate we are for Spurllngton rather than miss the road or to delay its building indefinitely It Is not generally known that In Adair county there are several very valuable Tock quanes It Is sandstone and when first taken from the earth It is as soft as fresh clay can easily be cut in any share desired
