meet Kirby Smiths column then about entering the State from east Tennessee reaching Lexington on the 4th of September then in posses son of the confederate forces Here Gano recruited three com panics which raised his squadron to a regiment Dukes regiment the Sec end Kentucky now numbered 1100 men Cols Clark and Chenault were given authority to raise regiments for Moigans brigade and wero actively engaged in recruiting when Bragg was ordered South from Kentucky Maj Gen Geo W Morgan in command of the Seventh Division of the Federal army of the Ohio consisting of four Brigades numbering 7000 men was ata this time In atCumberland Gap Klrv by Smith confederate had flanked the position entering the State with 12000 men leaving Gen Stevenson with 8000 in front of the Gap Finding that the confederate forces had gained access to his rear Gen Morgan seeing he was of perfectly deluded determined to evacur ate the Gap and attempt a retreat through eastern KentucKy Duke with his regiment was playicg havoc among the raw recruits In the vicinity of Cincinnati Augusta was captured and a battilion of Home Guards taken at prisoners On the 6th of October Morgan with his brigade now consisting of three regiments and a battalion numbering 1500 effectives left Losing ton and took post between Versailles and Frankfort on the flank of Kirby of Smiths army which was in the vicinity of Lawrenceburg Let me say in this connection that notwithstanding the effort that was made to Induce Kent tucklans to enlist as infantry very few of would do so and those who did joined regiments which come in with Gen Smith Not a single infantry regla ment was raised during the time the confederate army was in the StateSI All the Kentuckians who joined at this time wantad to ride Gen Abe Buford raised three regiments at cavalel ry under Cols Butler Smith and Grigs at by the last two of which were assigned to Morgan Duke estimates then number of Kentuckians who enlisted in the confederate army during the occupation of the State by Bragg anda Smith at 5000 After the battle of Perry ville Morgans and Ashleys cavalry formed the rear guard of Gen Smiths as far south as Big Hill when Morgan obtained permission to retire from the State by way of Gallatin instead of following the main army through Cumberland GaprOn the 17th of October Morgan conceived the idea of capturing Lexington then held by one regiment the fourth Ohio cavalry The main body was ate Ashland the home of Henry Clay about two miles from the town one or two companies were quartered at the courthouse After a brisk fight thes entire regiment between 500 and strong was captured and with them a supply of colts pistols which wereI eagerly appropriated by their cap torsIt was the warmest reception we had had for some time My horse was killed from under me and a hole shot through my hat rim The horse was given me by Col Duke whom I loved as a father I hal ridden that horse threa months and he had carried me out of danger both seen and unseen to meFrom Lexington the column moved by way of Lawrencburg Bardstown and Elizabeth town to its field of oper ation on the Louisville and Nashville railroad south of Green River which was reached on the 24th of October On the 4th of Novembsr Morgan reached Gallaton Tenn having captured nearly 600 prisoners and at this place added another regiment to hi command The occupation of Harts ville and Castilian Springs by infantry brigades now effectually shut Morgan off from his field of action on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad which was run to its utmost capacity in bringing forward supplies to the army of the Cumberland which was t leb00400000000preparing for a campaign against Braggs army at Murfresboro The brigade at Castillion Springs was con manded by Col John M Harlan a bold and vigilaut officer who kept a sharp lookout for cavalry raids That at Hartsville commanded by Col A B Moore was composed of three regi ments of the new levy the 106th and he 108th Ohio and 100th Illinois fantry 1200 Strong The capture of this place was confided to Morgans cavalry who with Cobbs battery and two regiments the second and ninth Kentucky Infantry of Hansons brigade 700 strong in addition to his own command of 1500 left Frriric Mills twentyfive miles distant from Uartsj ville on the 7lh of December and by rapid march encamped that night five miles of tbelr destination Morgan planned a complete surprise The infantry and Cobbs batteries reached the ferry at 10 oclock and immediately crossed the river This force moved forward promptly at break day fearing that information Would Col Harlan of the movement and when Col Duke joined the column- It was determined to make the attack at once The camp was on a hill two miles in advance of Hartsvllle which town was once occupied by a regiment of cav aIry while two more formed opposite the right flank of the union line Clarks and Chenaults men after ducting horse holders numbered 460 whlce with the infantry made a force some 1250 men for the attack The one hundred and sixth Ohio which received the attack of the cavalry never having witnessed a bat ie and being deprived of the presence more expellenced troops broke after the first fire and fell back in disorder The remaining regiment resisted the of the confederate infantry for a short time when Col Moore The contest lasted an hour and a half in which time the union loss was 77 killed and 137 wound Gen Bragg reported Morgans loss 113 killed and wounded Thetents and every thing that could be carried off were burned A number of captured were loaded withI portable stores and arms and taken the river with the prisoners whoI contrary to the usual custom were notI parolled Col Harlan hearing the firlngat once put his brigade in motion and hurried to the assistance of Col Moore but only reached the camp in time to find it in flames Pressing forward in pursuit Harlan reached the only in time to witness the rear of Morgans column disappear behind the hills on the Southern shore For this exploit Morgan was promot Brigadier General Col Hanson who was captured at Donelson with his regiment and had just eflected his exchange was also promoted to the rank by President Davis This was plobably the zenith of Morgans fame His brigade consisting of seven regiments with an effective strength of 4000 had no superior in either army for that dashing courage essential to the cavalry service and in its ability to endure hardships without murmuring He was the newly wedded husband of a most accomplished lady a daughter of Judge Ready of Mur fresboro and was the idol of his men His tame as a cavalry leader attracted to his banner scores of spirited young men who finding the service in other commands irksome sought service in Morgans Cavalry John H Morgan was one of the mildest men I ever saw He was aman of few words and there has never been a cavalry leader that men thought more of than Morgan men did of him He could talk to a half dozen men at once and had a kind word for all He would not order hiss men into danger unavoidable In m next I will glue the battle of Green River TO BE CONTINUED At Rhine Ga John

fret In an Allfjlntjy cJuncciatJc met ting last Wednesday and made a speech tbat set the crowd on fire with entbuslam DC declared that there is no reason in tbe present status of national politics to cause the democrats to be discour aged On the contrary he thinks the republican party is clcso to shoal wat ers and It will take almost a political miracle to keep them from stranding on a lee shore The selfconfidence of the republi cans has been overstrained Taking advantage of that fact a system of graft has been inaugurated and the postal scandals are the first irruption of the trouble that has taker hold of tie whole organism Other depart ments are showing signs of boils on thief bodies and investigation is now the order of the day in Washington Therefore as the stalwart Pennsyl vania governor sees it the great slogan of 1904 Is likely to be the old warcry Turn the rascals out The people be thinks want a housecleaning and do not like the Presidents way of go Ing about it The need for an overhauling of books and methods of ad ministration once engrafted on the public mind and conscience is likely to override all sentimentalism and lead to a democratic victory which is the only true way to get a thorough limelight on coudltions and cause the enforced hegira of the grafters This is a cheerful and plausible view of the situation and we are not sure that Mr Pattison is not

RAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON 0 0 McCHORD The ways of man are hard to understand In the Republican convention held here last Sat urday Gov J R Hindman who has been unsettled politically since 189G annouunced his inten tion to support the Republican party in its future battles The Governors position and action re minds us of an old lady who lived near Chattanooga when the Southern Road was completed to that city Soon after its completion she in company with others was taking her first ride The train was running at good speed to the delight of all passing through fertile bottoms deep cuts and over long tressels The old lady was delighted amused and astonished She watched the variation of the land as the train dashed along when suddenly and unexpectedly to her it passed over a high bridge and when it was apparent that the train was again on earth the old lady sprang to her feet clapped her hands and exclaimed Thank God it has lit Now for seven years the Governor has beeu so journing in the realms of doubt both counted in and counted out He has possibly passed through deep cuts over high precipices and shaky treseels observing the lay of the land as the old politi cal train dashed along at a wonderful speed until Saturday at 2 p m when he passed over the bridge and in the language of the old lady we say Thank God he has has lit A few Sundays ago Rev George 0 Lorimor one of the leading di vines of the country delivered a sermon in which the question of negro lynching recieved attention He said Instead of holding meetings to denounce theaa lynch ings we should meet with a view of forever stopping the barbarous assaults on the women of our land They are too frequent and what wonder human nature toils over before such a bloody deed We should make it plain that white men will not tolerate attacks upon their wives and daughters This is the imperative duty of the hour and I trust it may not be over looked by our colored citizens in their talk about social prejudice Lynching is a regrettable affair but the wanton murder of a de fenseless woman is more so This butchery of our women must be blotted out Dr Lorimorstrikes at the root of tho lynching evil Let the crime that leads up to lynching cease and lynching will be heard of no more This butch ery of our women must be blotted out The State Prison Commission paroled seven convicts last Wednesday six of the number being women The Board refused to take up the EK Wilson case It will be remembered that he caused the death of a young women at London Ky after destroying her character In place of being in the penitentiary he should have looked pa rope 5 t In the Republican conventIon in this town last Saturday thor were men who had spent the ma jor portion of their lives in advo cating the principles of Demoora oy Some saw the bright light of 1896 and some heard the voice ir 1899 Some were for the golf Standard some rank apostles at of free silver The meeting of the two extremes in the workshop of the common enemy of the part of their youthful days their ad herance and participation in a po litical organization they hat fought from early manhood dowi to recent date is but evidence of the unstability of humanity and indicates tho desire of man to be identified with power That the Republican party is a commoi asylum for all the disappointed and disaffected can not in our judgmentbe explained on any oth er ground than that it holds thi loaf from which many expect to get a piece some merely crumbs that fall from the table The ductive charms of political prest igo the glittering allurements of official position the ambition of party power and the hope of re ward are powerful incentives in changing party affiliation in these days of political activity Al ready the Republican party is in the grasp of men who plied nIl their powers in early manhood and in their maturer years to work iti overthrow It is bowing to the aspirations of men who could not combat its onward march in open opposition but grasping an oppor tunity in the nick of time become its high commanding officers II is giving up the fruits of a long and arduous period through whicl the party has struggled its aohiev ments and heritage handed to the newcomer while the old guard it knocking at the outer door of the castle It is true that the Demo cratic party has sustained some losses by reason of this peculiar shifting but its principles remain unchanged its ambitions and pur poses fixed on the eternal doctrine of justice and the exodus of the office seeker seems only to purify our party inspire the ones who are left Our party is now about freed from the ones who have giv en trouble and we have true workers who will not forsake in times of seeming disaster It is now made of men who believe in the correctness of its principles love its history and achievments and cherish its traditions Its future is bright its possibilities unlimit ed It is largelyfree from the heavy weight of croakers and grumblers Gen Cassias M Clay the old warrior of White Hall Madison county has been adjudged of un sound mind The proceedings were instituted by Mr Clays daughters who claimed that thier father was wasting his property His effects will now be placed in the hands of a trustee It is dangerous to get old and possess much property The race for the Republican nomination for circuit judge in this district seems to be warming upthe friends of both aspirants claiming a victory It will be set tled in a primary August the 1st so several days of hot weather and political sweats are yet to be en dured before the coveted honor can be settled As a result of the riot at Evans ville ten or twelve deaths have occurred This trouble is but a lit tie matter for the State of Indiana but if it had ocoured in Mississippi Georgia or Alabama the northern papers would not cease howling for months Indiana is a great and good state Bill Taylor and Gov Durbin live there The Republican convention
