rehearing and instructs that the petition be submitted for further consideration General Gordon to the Confederate Veterans in the 13th annual reunion New Orleans on the 6th said To my thought itis most fitting that this proud and patriotic organization snould again meet in tbis historic city which gave it birth The meeting of such men as yon welcome today whose past deeds will remain forever an inspiration to American valor and to future sacrifices for constitutional freedom is an auspicious event in the country history whenever and where ever it may occur but how peculiarly inspiring is this reunion in Louisiana on this one hundredth anniversary of her new birth into governmental alliance with American states AEoman eye would have discovered in a meeting of such men at such time an omen of good to the cause of Liberty andI American eyes should see in It nothing but good to the whole republic It must of necessity be beneficient and only beneficient We will not In dulge on this centennIalthis political millennial morning nor at otherI times in any bitterness We feel none We pity those who do We have long since drawn the curtain of oblivion over the regretful and un seemingly things of the past and we cherish as Americans the valor and noble deeds of both armies and of al sections We are satisfied with our record that the power that would attempt to make us blush for it would be both stupid and blind We ar heirsjoint heirswIth the republics children in the inheritance of freedom left by our sires We are proud of all the past Moreover we are now fac toga future pregnant with tremendous possibilities but we face it with a strength of hope and assurance borne dischargoure whole countiy We are growing old narrosstrip of land which separates us from a boundless ocean And as we go hence we will calmly drop our mantles on the shoulders of our sons who will worthily wear them and in no crisis of the republic wheth er in forum or field will they be found wanting At ohe conclusion of Gen eral Gordon address he led to the front of the platform Mrs Stonewall Jackson and saidlilt was my fortune and I will never cease to thank God that it was my fortune to know well and to love Stonewall Jackson He is not here but the best half of him is here in the person of his wife Comrades I present to you Mrs Stonewall Jackson In the wild cheers that swept the hall the fair faced lady from Virginia was made to know once more how Southern love remembers And heres a young Jackson called out verytian the granddaughter of the famous soldier As he spoke he kissed her and the cheers were redoubled for the General and the girl Judge Rogers said Slavery perished like secession as one of the incl dents and results of the war Thank God it is gone forever and that we have a reunited country under one flag an emblem of a free people in an inseparable union of coequal states and never destined we pray God to become the emblem of imperial power home or abroad or to float over vas states and subject peoples anywhere against their will We are here to re vive no Isues settled by that unhappy conflict We are not here to defame others or pervert or warp the truth We are not here to exaggerate or mag nify the glory and virtues of one section of our country at the expense- of the other We are here that man- kInd may not forget nor falsehood nor calumny cloud or tarnish the calm judgment of posterity as to the sincer ty or the motives and the honorable conduct of the Confederate soldiers OBITUARY As I glanced over the paper this morning to see the news from my homeland mine eyes fell upon the death of cousin Clemmie Williams of Montpe lier It grieved me sorely for she was one of the best friends I have ever had on this earth I was reared hard by her home many difficulties lay in my way for an education many many times have we alone talked together and planned to bridge yawning gulfs Her plans didnt consist only of mere talk but there went gifts with her plans I knew her as I have known but few persons and I can say that I have never known a truer and nobler woman on earth She had great force of character not emotional but deeply spiritual Her throne was her home and there sue reigned in positiveness grace love and beauty Many times have I gone to that home wearied in body and worried in mind the shad ows dark and many had gathered about me and in her kind and thoughtful way chased them away and left sunshine and gladness in my life InI those years of struggle and awful wor ry thatcame to me thoseyears when it seemed my very heart would breakI If I didnt get through school She encouraged me in a thousand ways Slip and her coble husband God bless him stood by me like I was a son Their home was my home my success it any was their joy Her life was as pure as the drifted snow Her greatest ambition in life was to help do noble things for those about her and she set in motion influence that will tell a great tale for humanitys good and Gods glory for ages to come She loved her home her country and her Savior Her life of great activity on earth has ended her life of gifts and helpfulness will long be remembered She has gone to return no more but thank God there were stars in her crown when the sun went down lam a better man because she lived and I 1am sad because she has gone She has left her children a great heritage bet ter than thrones and dominions and may they ever walk In the pathway in donee rest n peace and joy G W PERKYMAN Paducah Ky OZJ1RK BRIEFS Mrs Mary Lee Garnett of Glensfork visited in this vicinity a few day ago Mrs Mollie Willis of Joppa visited eMrs Ellie Scott this week Mr Wm England of Edmonton severalowdaysago Porter Barger arid Will Garnett of Glensfork went on a fishing trip to Green river several days ago but did not have very much success Bob Willisy of color who lives o the farm of Mr Thomas Dunbar is in trouble Bob claims to have bought a I black sow from a JiMtou near Burtons store farld i got away from him and last Suoj Lc went to look for it He found a ery much like the one he claims to Jj the bought near Shiloh He says Jo h Montgomery helped him to catch the sow and betook it home Last Monday Ed mond Bryant went to Bobs house and identified the sow as his own and Bob promptly turned it over to him and claims he went back to the man he bought a sow from and the man paid him back his money Last Friday Mr Bryant made complaint before Judge Morrell and deputy sheriff Staples came out after him but fallen to find him Some are of the opinion that Bob took Mr Bryants sow throu mistake while others think he stole it Bob is a hard working negro and has some means and there is no reason why he should steal A BIBLE TRUST There was a Bibletrust It has been shattered by a Chicago man This is news enough for one issue For many years the Bible has been published by only seven printing houses in America Six months ago representatives of these companies met in New York to consider the formation of a trust the object of which would be to boost the price of Bibles The undertaking met with general favor from the worldly minded pub lishers and the trust was formed The Chicago member of the combine however declined to enter into this wicked partnership declaring that the trust was formed without the least thought of the spiritual Injury inflicted upon humanity or consideration of the fact that it affected the religious consola tion and eternal salvation of millions of persons It was clear the conferrees thought that there was money in it and the trust was formed Thereupon the Chicrgo man arose in his righteous wrath denounced the combine from whereas to amen and announced that he proposed to sell Bibles as cheap as bisucuits Then the Bible trust went to pieces AFTER TWENTYTWO YEARS Baltimore Md May l3Ethel Clarke daughter of Mr and Mrs Jasper Clarke who was kidnapped about twentytwo years ago has been turned to her home from which place sbe was stolen In 1883 one morning Mrs Clark rose early to go to a grocery store some two or three blocks distant in a sparsely settled neighborhood On returning she was confronted by a tramp whom she had before befriended and who demaeded his breakfast immediately Mrs Clark told him he would have to wait until she saw fit to give him something The fellow cursed and threatened her On the afternoon of the next day Ethel disappeared On the anniversary of her disappearance one of the local papers published an account of Ethel Clarkes kidnaping A few days later a hand some young woman called on Mrs name is Ethel Clark and I lieve I am your daughter Then she told how she remembered being taken away when very young by a rough man and carried to an orphan asylum in Washington where she remained twelve years She was transferred to other institutions where she remained until she was 18 years of age since which time she has been earning her own living in a silk factory in this city The fullest

MORGAN CHINN FOR HAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON 0 0 McCHORD The effort of that part of the Republican press to create the im pression that the recent Democrat ic primary was a fraud that it was a machine that marched over the will of the people and made a tickot at its own pleasure is not bearing the desired result and said publications still kaop up the cry of fraud Goebelism and Machin ism We did not favor a primary and stated our reasons at that time but our objection was not based on the supposition that a primary vitiated party decisions tnat it created or maintained ma 0ctine rule neither did we claim that a convention could or would make a better ticket The objec tions wo offered to a primary would be offered again and since the primary has- throughout done its work Democrats the State are satisfied with the result We hear a great deal concerning machino made tickets machine administrations ud machine and machines A l political machine as we understand is a combination of poli ticians banded together for the purpose of doing certain things A political boss may be an agent for a machine or he may be the thing himself We have never heard whether the Hon Vincent Boreiug was an agent or the whole thing but at any rate it- said that certain things were required from Federal office holders in this State for the purpose of advancing his interest overtbafc of Mr Colson in their race for tho nomination We did not hear these saintly papers talk ing about machines then A mouse trap in the Democratic party seems larger to them than a modern threshing machine in Re publicauism The Governor has sent troops to- Jackson to protect the witnesses and the Court in tho investigation of the murder of J B Marcum and should indictments be found against one or many they will be 1arrested and tried There is not a doubt about this neither would they find protection from some I Governor should it be revealed that Democrats are involved in ti the trouble The voice of the people is to probe the matter to the bottomprosecute the guilty Iparties without fear or favor whether Democrats or Republi cans No man nor no party can afford to endorse assassination Yet to the shame of the State the assassins of Mr Goebel have been excused by many and every effort to find indictments to se cure arrests or to try those the Commonwealth have behind the disapprovIput political interest above law and order It may develop that a conspiracy existed to put Mr Marcum out of the way and should it be shown that a politi cal gang is responsible for his death then we say prosecute the gang We have no doubt but it will be done The Democratic party will not hinder prosecution Louise Hadley a chambermaid in an Indianapolis Hotel refused to make the bed occupied by Book er T Washington a few days ago was discharged The newspapers told the tale and to her surprise Southern people who admire her grit and position taken are making her a nice bank account One check of 1000 was sent her by the citizens of New Orleans and money from other southern towns is piling up to her credit A Woman of her grit and taste should come Southwhere such work not re quired of a chambermaid and spend the remainder of her life in a clime congenial to her makeup Mr Jas Garuett Jr has ceived a letter from J Willard Mitchell who was defeated by N B Hays for the nomination for Attorney General in which he says Friend Hays and I ran a clean race and he beat me I am for him heart soul and body I want you mountain Democrats in the 11th to roll up as big a ma jority for him as we will in the Eighth Mr Mitchell made good race and was the concendnn man His position shows that no ill feeling exists and that Demo crate throughout the State will not be out of line next November Mrs Lula Hadley who refused to makeup Booker T Washing tons bed in an Indianapolis hotel and was discharged will probably accept a position in Dallas Texas For her action in this matter she has received several thousand dol lars from the people of the South The inmates of the house where Mrs Hadley is stopping were chloroformed a few nights ago and 43 which had just come in stolen Crimes are committed in every State and in almost every community in the course of a fe years but there is not a state that receives so much advertising as does Kentucky A crime may b committed just over the river an receive a notice in

standard bearer of the Democratic party for President in 1904 The platform has not been written and jf so it has not been indorsed Mr Cleve land is a big man but the Demo cratic party is somewhat larger The efforts of the reorgsuizers the men who left the party in 1896 and 1900 are not the ones to write Democratic platforms and name our candidates It is not likely that it will ba done Gov
