the two for the favor of their fellow ettizens of Afri can dt cont has its comic aspect of ijoursp hut inly the lightminded will earn to dwell on the ludicrous side of such a degrading tugofwar between the President of the United States and the leading Republican Senator his ri val for the nomination In 1004 Mr RII vrlt professing the very flht motives the while appoints urnxs to tdIIcefo tb South and takes very occasion to ruhuke Southeners for not liking too intimate personal contact with a race whom they In com mon with Mr Roosevelt refuse to re Lard as their equals This policy ap peals to the policy of the blacks and the President has calculated that in exchange for regognition the ne roes will flock to the polls in his behalf when the time for electing dele irates arrives But now comes Senator Hanna with a bill providing for the pensioning of every exslave a measure that would take hundreds of millions from the treasury were it to become a law Nobody better than Senator Hanna knows that there is not the remotest possl bility of his bill ever becoming a law There is sot the least probability that it will ever be brought tea vote in this or any other Congress But that does not concern Mr Hanna What be is after is popularity on the plantations and in the back alleys of Southern cit lea where Mr Roosevelt of late has been having it all his own way The poor black man may be grateful to the President for giving a collectorshlp and a postofflce or two to colored citi zens but what is such recognition however flattering in comparison with the promise of a Hanna pension for himself or one of the family The people of the South have a right to be indignant at this truckling to the negroes by a brace of politicians whose ambition appears to have put their scruples sound asleep Sn one who has any understanding of the con ditions in the Southern States where there is a large African population can refrain from actively sympathizing with that indignation Messrs Roose velt and Hanna are playing with fire fire which once started may devastate many Southern communities They are selfishly and consciencelessly trifling with a very grave matterad rung enormously to the difficulties of an already sufficiently burdensome race problem Deliberately they are filling the heads of great masses of ignorant negroes with hopes of political prefer ment social equality and material ad vantages that can never be realized President Roosevelt and Senator Hanna are intelligent men They know perfectly well what must be the effects of their bids for negro popular ity They are engaged for political purposes in stirring up the black- against the whites of the South onlytIs it to the last degree discreditable to pubdso dangerous that it becomes the duty of patrIOtic men throughout the Union regardless of party to lift their voices and order a halt The South is a part of our common country and as such as well entitled to Internal peace as is any other part For outside politicians to disturb its quiet and threaten its safety in order that they may further their person ends in a national convention is simply infamous If the Chinese of the Pa clfic Coast were fifty times as numerous as they are and had votes an Roosevelt aud Hanna for the sake of delegates should endeavor to rouse willedthere that would be a precise to what Roosevelt and Hanna are ing in the South Every real friend of the negro every enemy of race hatred every foe of sec tlonallsm and every citizen who cares for the dignity of the Presidential and Senatorial offices must deplore the course of Mr Roosevelt and Mr Ban na Their rivalry as aspirants fort e Presidency has carried them beyond all permissible bounds While they alarm and incense the South they hu miliate the

dispatch says Tis but a narrow span in years when such a thing as a newspaper published at sea would have been inconceivable Bu this unique experience has come to one arrivi Etruria can testify It was on the last outward voyage of the Etruria that this newspaper was published made up from dispatches prepared by the Reuter agency and transmitted by wireless telegraphy to toe vessel When the Etruria sailed Signsor Marconi sailed with her Before embarking he Intimated that wirele telegraphy would soon score another triumph Itdid Shortly before mid night of February 6 the Cunarder be tog about 170 nines distant from the Irish coast the wireless instruments began to work and summaries of wh was going on in toe world came vibrating on board Most of the passengers were asleep at the time but the eat rial staff was wide awake and every thing was in readiness for printing the paper when the news had been received It was late copy tbatBeuter alsent on the stroke of midnight when the first

Congress in the spring of 1900 That bill met its tended fate death in the Senate Probabilities point to a repetition of that farce GO SIP Gossip has made many a hell upon earth It has suited the character of many an innocent man and pure and respectable woman It has made enemies of lifelong friends parted lovers and divorced man and wife It has filled the world with misery and unhappiness enmity and hatred mis trust and suspicion The tongue of gossip drips a subtle poison which slowly and secretly eats its way into the vital of a mans or womans character and blights his or her regard for truth for bonessy for forbearance or any of the noble virtues that distinguish a gentleman from a poltroon and highbred marketwoman Gossip is the open door to slander and slander is a murderer of character and good name Take care then how you gossip EgA FOR BOYS thesetdays said a successful business man about there being no chance for the boy of this day It is all bosh There revel was a time when the boy who Sad the right stuff in him had as good a chance as right now The reason so many boys are out of a job is that they are of so little account Pick up the thaet be isnt worth his salt He is so attentive and lazy that you cant trust him to do anything unless you stand war him and see that he does it right A genuine good reliable boy Is a rare bird but when you have found one be is like a jewel of great price and tbe business man will pay him more wages than he really feels he can afford rather than let him go You see that set of boys up there on the sire corner lighting cigarettes You couldnt depend on a single one of the outfit to attend to business and tbeof chances are that these boys will up into trifling young men T young men may not know it but the keelteyes on young fellow that is giving evidence that he is steady and industrious hasnt mucha trouble to get a job and he has still less trouble to help tEx The following editorial taken from the Lebanon Falcon will be interesting reading for the tax payers of Marion Taylor and Green counties Coming events often cast their shadows before The special attention of the officials of these counties is called to it ssThe case of the settlement on the L N Railroad Co with Southern Division of C O was before tbe court Friday on some preliminary motions As will be remembered an agreed judgment for this settlement atwas offered on the last day of the last October term of tbe court The court at that time upon its own motion re Cwferred the matter back to the commis sinner with instructions to make an amended report The report was offered at this term The counties of Marion and Taylor undertook to file an answer but were overruled by the court They then filed exceptions to tbe report and the case was set for next Thursday Febuary 19 The The Commissioners report shows the C O to be in debt to the L C N in the amount of about 8700000 vbile the exceptions would indicate the indebtedness on the other side

wealths attorney for the Franklin icircuit court district has further en deared himself to democratic hearts in Kentucky It has been an open secret for some time past that Mr Franklins friends all over the State were urging him to make the race for attorney general It is further an open secret that with the magnificent record made by him in the prosecution of the Goebel cases together with his superb campaigning and mental powers and per sonal magnetism be would have swept tbe State At a conference of his supporters in Frankfort a few dap ago Mr Franklin definitely declare- himself out of the race in this statement 1 believe I can easily win th race for attorney general lam certain I can it my friends are correct in thei statements But these Goebel case- have grown up with me and I with them I know more about them tha any living man and more than an man who succeeds me can possibly learn in two or three courts Not on of these trials with the exception of that of Youtsey has been fought to a conclusion The greatest struggle o1the all in connection with these cases is yet to come It I should lay dow this work now it would put my su c cessor at a tremendous disadvantage- and would inevitably more or less hamper the commonwealth in th edfightcourse on my part with my sense of duty and therefore I shall not be a candidate for It loIsstatement was made in a caucus of Mr Franklins friends and without the slightest idea that it would ever appear in print But the manly selfsacrificing spirit displayed in this announcement- is worthy of all praise The Times congratulates Mr FranKlin and mar especially it congratulates tbe corn commonwealth that it will not lose his distinguished services He is one among a thousand The democracy of Kentucky will not forget Bob Franklin

of the new department of com merce and lobar The cabinet has grown from five to nine since Geoge Washington summoned around him the heads of the executive depart ments which had been created There Is no provision In the constitu lion for a cabinet nor is there provls in law The president might de cilne to invite to his cabinet councils any one of the gentleman who are the heads of the executive departments or all of them Usaage not law has brought about the cabinet All the constitution says about the relation ship in this directisn between the president and the heads of the execu tive departments is that he might require the opinion in writing upon subject relating to the duties of other offices The lirst departments created were those of state treasury war justice and tbe postofllce In 1798 provision was made for the creation of the navy department The interior depart ment was created in 1S49 The partment of agriculture in 1889 The creation of a new department has naturally given rise to considera ble cabinet gossip It is interesting to note that tbe only cabinet officers who have become president have been secretaries of state and secretaries of war Jefferson

ANNOUNCEMENTS For State Treasurer are authoriicd to announce u u HEN for t4 NINGER Wayno county a candidate lubjeet to the action office of StateTreasurer ot the Democratic party rThe contest for the Democratic nomination for Governor in this State ia now on There are three announced candidates for this hon or and a warm campaign may be expected but warm as it may be we trust that the friends of each one will not go beyond the bounds of a friendly fight and when the skirmish shall have ended that we can all pull togather Mr John K Hendrick of Paducah has been in the field for some time Gov J 0 W Beckham has not been timid or slow to let his desires be known and last week Mr Robert J Breokenride of Lexington announced himself All three are men well equipped to fill the office to the good of the State all are apable of making a strong fight against the opposition next fall and all are deserving of any honor the party can bestow but in our judgment the time has come when a now deal should be made Mr Beckhamhas made a good Gov ernor he has brought peace out of disorder and restored the State to a no rm 01 condition No one has complaints against his of ficial record and no one doubts his loyalty to his party but Mr Beck ham has received what he sought and we believe that he shouldnot be an applicant to succeed him self when it is a question covered in doubt as to his eligibility The readers of the News are acquainted with that clause of our constitu tion which in spirit is said to render him ineligible There ar other reasons why we believe h should not have entered this race which we do not mention It is not our intention to take part in this fight but feeling an interest in the welfare of our party we trust that the Democrats of this part of th State will consider this contest iu every point before taking a deci ded stand in such an important party decision In our judgment Mr Hendrick is as good a man we need He is able courageous and true He not hampered in fighting the battle with the Re publicans and there ia not a doubt as to the result He believes in following the constitution of our State as plainly written With Hendrick at the head it would be a game fight The Journal is the name of a new paper just started at Albany Mr U S Rexroat is its editor and publisher Clinton county has a Republican majority of about five hundred but the editor of the Journal states that his paper will be nonpolitical This announcement leads us to conclude that the reading people of Clinton county are Democrats We hope Mr Rex roat will give them digestible mat ter and that his venture will meet with success Six thousand two hundred ma jority is not much for a Republican Congress to set aside James J Butler of Missouri defeated George 0 Wagoner by that many votes yet he was unseated last Thursday in order that Wagoner might draw his salary Now watch the Republican papers of this State fire into a Republican Con gress for turning down such a pro nounced majority Its what they call stealing and of course lvill make a kick Keep an oye on the editorial columns Harry Knapp was arrested in isiwives When he married a woman fca would take
