his political career where the labors of almost fair years appropriated to the construction of a folio wing which was to make him Gov ernor form second term is about to be lost The Governor started upon his campaign for a second nomination as soon as his first term begun With his control of State patronage he has built toup a following throughout the State the object of which was to secure this nomination There is no doubt that when the Constitution of Kentucky was framed each incumbent of the gu bernatorial chair was limited to the period of a single term for the pre vention of just such tactics as Governor Beckham has used There is no question that be has therefore violated the spirit of the constitution in offer ing himself for a second nomination whether he has violated the letter of it or not It is extremely doubtful if he could have prevailed upon the Democrats of the State to Indorse his course in disre garding the intents of the supreme law of the land even If the highest court had been able to declare him eligible beyond all doubt and had done so As it is his prospects have been seriously blighted by the doubt which attaches- to his Qualifications to hold the office of Governor It he were elected It is doubtful if a majority of Democrats can be pursuaded to waste their votes In this manner for the love of bestow a compliment surely it does not speak much for the practical sense of party if it goes into any such bouquet tossing campaign following the lead of any such bouquetseeking can idate When Governor Beckham Is elected the question of his eligibility will come the legislature in the form of a contest filed by his Republican opponent The probabilities arc that the legislature will be strongly Democrat but that does not signify a Demo cratic Governor as a result of the con test Three men will be selected from the Senate and eight fiom the Housen before whom this contest will be tried It is to be hoped that whatever their politics they will be honest men thatp they will abide by their oaths and cide according to the facts in the case which should be tried strictly on its merits To assume otherwise would a grave reflection upon the In tentl of Governor Beckham and upontl those of bis friendselAssuming then that Governor Beck lam has none but honorable deslgnsp and this cannot be assumed for It IsP knownIt is very doubtful if he willtl ever be able to again quality as Govfl ernor even if he should receive a ma ority cribs votes in an election andtJ is very likely that the candidate re of the next highest number of will be sworn in as the chief executive of the State The question now is what reason is therein Governor Beckhams fixed de intermination to offer himself for an of fice under snch circumstances Is he under no obligations to his party thattJ he may thus recklessly threaten its sutJ premacy with his own personal amblb lion Is it his private property that should treat its chances for su cessd with such careless abandon Assured his reputation r astuteness andfl ability asa leader departed when hea determined tbat the success of his party of was nothing unless his personal amtJ ition was also gratified and that a isaster for It was of no consequence he too was lost in defeat Itd that Mr Brckhamhas formed dfspropor4toaateidea of ibe relative mpdrtance of himself ami his party It be were the i6iy m lfn the party to be a candidate there wo ldbeU some reason for his attitude toward the organization But there are manya mesas well qualified to administer the affairs of the State as he is and it is very likely that be is alone in his be lef that bo is indispensable to the Democratic party Danville Advo ate All Wore Baflia Word comes from Wake Ark that Rev John Cox had a strange malady accompanied by yellow

ELIZABETH LEE MURPHY BerrymanFlowerspublished in the Dallas Texas News during the Confederate reunion held in that olty last year The author is now Mrs Murphy a widow lady An old Italian came into our yard last night And humbly begged permission that his wandering band Might play for us some old forgotten airs I bowed assent and straightway Dixie Land thrilledeeyes were Ah well perhaps it was but that old song Is but the gravestone oer the burled hopes of other years And as the notes swelled out now high now low I saw between the chords in letters bright and red The birth the life the age of that Lost Cause That neer will be forgotten een though dead rThe stricken South with unstrung bow In hand I saw again amid her mournful scenes Her arrow sped too high and lying lost Among a myriad host of sweet dead dreams Could you my friend stand by the grave of one you loved And think on any faults that he In life possesseduWould you not like to dwell on nobler traits That put to shame and darkness all the rest So dreaming oer that past brought back tome No errors saw I but before my sight A vision only came of noble loyal men Fighting yea dying for a cause to them both just and right or As listening to the music die away one scene arose Whose pathos neer on canvas can be given A troop of ragged soldiers weeping oer a flag atAll riddled battle staned but dear as hopes of heaven And one the gentlest memory of our world Stood in their midst his figure sadly grand no Saying goodby to them and to the day When life no longer could be given for Dixie Land And that old song our fathers loved so well Whose words were ofttimes breathed with their last breath Should be to those of Southern birth as deartAs loved remembered kisses after A fitting in memorIam it seems to me Grief softens anger and from it a ray Makes warm our hearts for those who wore the blue While strengthening love and pride for those who wore the gray Lees surrender WITHDRAWAL CARD MONTICELLO KY MAR 80 1803 To THE DEMOCRATS OF KENTUCKY Having been before you for some as a candidate for State Treasurer I consider it due both to you and myself that I should make a announcement of my determination to withdraw from the race and my reasons therefor Believing myself qualified to fill acceptably the fice to which I aspired thus assuring he people in the event of my elec of the service to which they are I based my claims for the nomination not on the fact of any su fitness or personal merit on my as compared with the other gen seeking the position but on the that I was a native and life long resident of the 11th Congressional dls where the purest and best type unternfied Democracy exists and which has not heretofore received proper recognition the hands of the party in the State 1 trust my hope to secure in my own success this recognition of the party my district will not be considered- an unworthy one but another son of 11th much more widely known I and preeminently worthy is the people asking for another once and in the interest of his candi acy and for personal and buslnesss reasons I have decided to withdraw the race I have an abounJng abiding faith in the rank and file the party the brave boys in the and believe the plan ofglv ing them an opportunity to select their candidates a wise one I pre ict that the ticket they name on the 9th day of next May will be strong aud clean and that the wisdom of heir choice will be vindicated by an overwhelming victory for the party t November Acknowledlng the unfailing courtesy of my opponents aconsistent kindness of my JTriends I am yours

The strange theyIand lumber yard are now located During the night a heavy wind and rain storm passed and in the morning it was discovered that the lot was literally covered with thousands of nee dIes stuck slantwise in the ground Many people visited the scene the next day coming from all parts of the county and nearly every one carried away a handful of the needles which in that day were a necessaryadJunct In every household Judge Card yell who was then a small boy tells us that the morning after the shower his neighbor and chum Dallas Cbinn came over to tell him of the wonderful thing that had happened and they both hurried to the lot and got an armful of the needles and afterward wore socks knitted with them Har rodsburg Herald ANOTHER ISLANDER NAILED The New York Mall and Express continues to display considerable interest in southern affairsand- it has as little comprehension of them as ever- Discussing the subject of educa tion in the South The Mail and Express declares that theIIdis grace of wholesale illiteracy ini this section should somehow be endedtoAs might be surmised the edu cation of the negro is the burden of its wail aud on that point it saysThe negroes themselves are do ing what they can for their own education but it is not much that they can do So far as they are blu to serve themselves they are apt to strive for the higher educa tion before they get the lower and thus to miss both They need guidance and they need primary and industrial schoolsvery much ThQ above ia followed with a statement to the effect that the white people of the South are not only doing nothing for the educa tion of the negro but have done nothing great for their own race for the past thirty years The Mail and Express then says No Peabodyand Slater funds uo heavy contributions from indi railiiouairs can ever really redeem the South The people there must tax themselves for their own peoples education more heay ily than they are doing The southern education board is en gftggd ilT Blurring tEebi up oa Fr sense of the necessity of such ef performingnet the South heavily m every sor of advantageThere one line in The Mail and Express editorial which contains any truth or common souse and that is this No peo ple were ever really educated by another people It should have occurred to The Mail and Express to make anoth er and much more forceful ap plication of that pointbut it did not It did not occur to it that by the same process of reasoning- no people were ever really taught by another people how to manage their own affairs Here for in stance is a paper published a thousand miles away seeking to solve a problem that is as foreign to it as New Yorks municipal affairs are to the people of London And it shows just about as much understanding of the subject as the average Englishman does of America when he supposes that New York city is in danger of be ing inuBTdated by the Mississippi that bear shooting is good in Battery park But they keep hammering away it And this is where the mis chief is done They mean well doubtbut they know nothing about their subject They under take to solve something before taking the trouble to really inform themselves as to the conditions thataotuallyexisttThe trend of The Mall Express editorial for instance is to show that the white people of the South are neglecting the negro while the negro himself is doing all in his power to secure an education Just the reverse of this proposition is true as every one who is at all familiar with the situation knows Let us take Georgia to illustrate with and what Georgia is doing practically every other Southern State is doing The value of all property in Georgia as returned for taxation for 1902 is 467810646 Of this the negroes own 15188069or about onethirtieth The total revenues of the State from taxes levied on this property was 217521105 of which the negroes paidonethirtieth or approximately 70000 Here then we have figures on which to base an estimate as to what sourthern people are doing for the education of the negro aloneimony the people of Georgia on public schools including local systems is 206766363 for the year 1901 as taken from the annual report of the state commissioner of educa tionThe total enrollment was 502 887 Of these pupils admitted during the year 258984 were white aud 180691 were negroes So that it will be seen while the negroes pay only onethirtieth of the States expensesonly one thirtieth of the cost of running these school the enrollment of negro pupils is only 78000 behind that of white pupils Nearly as many negroes as whites are being educated in the common schools of Georgiaand the white people are paying 80 for it where the negroes pay 1 These are the Jact9and they ought to give Tho Mail aud Ex press a better understanding of its subjects They prove couolusive ly that the white people of the south are taxing themselves toed ucate another people as no people ever taxed themselves befort that they ar really doing all thy can to educate thlJegro whilp the negro is doing com pa ratively nothing Georgia spending near ly onehalfofer state revenue on pul fUvyeilucatibn aud with that luoueg she is aducatiug near lyasmal1Y negroes as whites while the negroes themselves are paying only onethirtieth of the cost thereofto But the southern people do not begrudge the negro this aide They do insist

the Columbia Fottofflcf aasecond cla3 mail matter WED APRIL 8 1903 The campaign for honors in the Democratic party is now on and as usual the head of the ticket over shadows all others It is a trian gle with a good Democrat on each corner but the time is not far dis tant when two of the corners must pass out while the other will be left to engage the common politi cal foe Each candidate has his friends each one will get a good vote and so far as the good of the State is concerned it is immateri al which one shall be elected Just now it is a contest between Demo crats a contest that should be de otdod in the interest of the party and while this is true we believe that this should be the desire of every voter We do not believe that any man should be boss Ware opposedto the fence in pol joy and think it wholesome for the party to set up a new man in stead of shouting around the ban nor of one who has been honored to the oxtent of the ccnstitution as understood by many We can not sae any reason for nominating Mr Beckham simply because he has been and is now Governor We doubt the propriety of giving him the nomination in the face of the many doubts as to his eligibilit- when a man could be named free from such a position Mr Beck ham is yet a young man and if his ambition prompts him to hear- honor upon himself we think tha he should not attempt to do this at the expense of the party We B9e no reason why the Democrats of this district should rally to his aapport when it has been ignored in the distributionof patronage and further ignored in his plan of campaign Mr Beckham if nominated will probably be elect ed but should the Republicans control the next Legislature hi days would be numbered as that body would decide him ineligible We do not believe that the Legis lature will pass from our party hut it has been the case and is not now impossible We have already had trouble enough Wo hav een divided and subdivied R eI lave had contests and why any Democrat should seek the nomi n ition of any man under such air c imstances we are not able to see Free the party from every doubt Let neW men have a chance Pre v at the formation of rings an combines for the purpose of

may point a moral for the young men of today who have politi cal ambition It shows thevaluei ofsi selfconfidence push and persistence Things do not come unasked ID this day As a rule we nave to do more than ask fur what we want Firstly we ask and then fight for the particular thing we are after At the time I have in mind Joe Bailey bad not been In Texas for any great length of time lu fact he bad just dropped in from Copiah county Mississippi and was nothing more than a struggling young lawyer without practice and without any extensive acquaintance in the new section into whtcu he had had ruled around to nominate a Democratic candidate for Congress in the district into which young Bailey had moved The day of the convenki tion had been set It was conceded that a certain old man who had already been to Congress would be given the nomination again As a matter of fact there was no other available timber at the time JoeIo Bailey decided that he would go to the convention town Having nothing to do and as business had been a little slack fur some time and having much leisure and but little money he thought he would walk across the country He started out afoot Alter he had been on the road for sometime a farmer drove up behind him in an old rickety two horse wagon Wanter git in an ride he said to the young lawyer and Bailey accepted gladly Going to the convention asked Bailey Yep said the farmer Ever hear of ayoung lawyer named Basle around hereasked Bailey SNope said the farmer Good speaker and bright fellow I understand suggested Bailey I Spose so said the farmer Yes continued Bailey and he will be over there today and Ill tell you you what well do Well call on him to make a speech You see all your friends tell them about Bailey and well call him The farmer said all right No more was said about the matter until there was a lapse in the convention during the preliminary movements o1 the body Suddenly the old farmer got up and suggested that the conven tion hear from Mr Ballaya risen young lawyer of these digglns he said an a feller that talks like put tin out fire Bailey Bailey Bailey More than a dozen yells went up aud Bailey came forth Joe Bailey made one of the hottest speeches of his life and the upshot of ihel whole thing was that the risin young lawyer jof those diggins got the nomination for Congress and ever since has been known as Joe Bailey ot Texas New Or leans Times Democrat THE OTHER SIDE The Kentucky farm Journal writ ins of the contluous drain upon this section of the State of our best citizens to populate the Western States says There may be conditions justifying this but they are more often imaginary than true It a man can successfully farm in those states he can do so in Kentucky Farm lands are as high there as here and markets are no bet ter It he is looking for an easy jobI there he will quickly learn of his mis take If he works as hard and with as much system here he wijl make money just as fast as he can in any otlur state Kentucky farmers young and old ought to join in the pull to bitter develop the resources of their native state Learn modern farming methods apply them to the old place and look out for crops Dont wear the old farm down to clay and then leave because it wont grow anything Put back each year as much fertility as the crops remove and it will always answer the demand upon It Stay at

in human ills today is Intemperance The horde of various vices for many ages which has trampled down mankind has as the leading figure in the work of devastation strong triumph march of these forces that undermine mens characters cannot be stopped now or for many years An earnest warning taken in a friendly spirit may prevent many thousands of young men from getting into trouble and going down under the rush of these moral monsters It Is a hideous army that attacks vice immorality quarrelsomeness disease obstinacy bru tality cruelty timidity Read over this list and ask yourself the question Is not every one of these tormentors of manKind made worse by is the commonest murderer the murderer of whom you read everyday He is the man naturally goodna tured kind enough when sober but rendered combative and murderously furious by whisky What is the history of the diseased man who goes in the ambulance to the hospital and thence to the potters field It is the history of man born healthy naturally able to work and to onjoy good healthwhose health and power for work have been destroyed by whir ky or other strong drink What ishe story of many a broken hearted mother and what is the story of the women who work among the poor unfortunates in big cities It is always the same story good family influence destroyed life and soul wrecked by drink Timidity This is one of mankinds curses It destroys the promising career It checks the rising man at the moment of success Whisky is the lather of timidity Whisky gives the temporary false courage that is followed by apathy and timidity When the man who speaks of the prize fighter whose courage falls of tbe financier whose nerves went to pieces at the critical moment or the writer whose nerves went to pieces at the critical moment or of the writer whose imagination and will died out the story will be tbe same He took to whisky and that was the end of him Deceit is another sign of mental decay The lie in a man is like the hollow at the center of the treeIt sounds hollow it tells of decay Whisky Is the father of lying Who believes the drunkards story He tells how he happened to drink too muchthe Judge does not even listen No one
