PATHETIC COURT SCENE Monday afternoon two highly re respected citizens both known for their many good deeds had a misunderstanding over a trivial matter and came to blows A policeman who happened to be nearby separated them before any damage was done In tbeI court Judge Corn addressed them and said You both wear buttons of a cause that was loved and lost Those buttons are the highest emblem of honor that can be bestowed uponI heroes It ilibecomes one of my younger years to call attention to the fact that you both also wear the honor of a hoary bead and knowing you as I do I believe tbat such conduct upon your part was in sudden heat and passionI and It is the judgment of the court that you each pay one cent and the costand I trust that you will shake hands over the bloody chasm as two old confederates should do and Jet this matter be forgotten At the conclusion of his honors remarks the two old soldiers grasped each other by the baud and thus ended one of the most pathetic scenes ever witnessed In a court room in this cityHarrods burg Herald OUGHT TO SURRENDER TAYLOR The mills of legal justice grind slow but grind exceedingly fine inHOld Keutuck The Governor of Indiana and his advisorspeople high in authority and the councils of govern ment administration ought now to SEE the great injustice of further protecting Governor Taylor exGoy ernur and chief conspirator in the great tragedy enacted at Frankfort in the murder of Governor Goebel who is now and bas been a fugitive front justice ever since his indictment in Kentucky which has caused all fair minded people to wonder at the amaz- Ing partisan influence that has thus far protected a man wha isnow proven to have been one of the chief conspirators in tne assassination of his politi cal opponent for the oflfee of Gouernor in one of the greatStatesol the nation and that in defiance of the will of the people as expressed through the ballot box aud the civil courts of the land The Governor of the State of Indiana can no longer consistently shield exGOv Taylorfrom arrest and return to the State of Kentucky to face tile criminal Indictments standing against him In the courts of that State charging him with the crime of conspiracy to assassinate aad murder Justice crlesout for Its victim and all tile influence of friendstd relatives and alt the protectionthrpwn around him by officials of the

believe that the majority of the white men in the Republican party In Kentucky are any more In favor of negro i quality than are the white Democrats of the State but the tendency of tfce Republican party as a national party Is all in that direction The Republican press of the North does not find terms bard enough to condemn the white people in the South because they lynch negro raps fiends These continued attacks upon the South for its protection of its women against lecherous and brutal negroes will not stop the application of the rope to every such scocndrel when captured but it Is a lesson to the South as to how the North regards the negro They are inflaming the pas sions of the colored man purposely by creating in their minds the idea that they ara badly treated The President of the United States the head of the Republican party eats not only with a negro at his own table but Invites negro women to the White House receptions to such an extent that Southern Congressman refuse to attend these social functions Then we have Cal Morris Belknap the publican nominee for Governor show Ing that he thought a negro was aS good as a white man by voting for As berry a negro for Ragtster of the Land offlceover Maj Cessel one of the cleverest gentlemen in the State Then there Is Judge Beckner the Republican nominee for Attorney Gen eral the known advocate and champ ion of Barea college a mixed school for whites and blacks where both do attend So far did Judge Beckner go in this direction that he is known throughout Kentucky as Barea Bill With a Republican President dining with a negro with a Republican candidate for Governor voting for a negro for an important State office with a Republican candidate for Attorney General advocating and encouraging a mixed school with mixed schools in every State where the Republican party is in power with the Republican party press denouncing the South for lynching negro rape fiends it is about time our white Republican friends In Kentucky if they are opposed to negro equality to get out of bad company get m the white mans party and vote the Democratic ticket this fall Elizabetetown News- BUILDING GOOD ROADS Cal J H Brigham assistant secre tary of agriculture at Washington in a recent speech at a good road conven tion said some things tbat everybody ought to read Among other good things he said tel see no reason why the general gov ernment shoeld not appropriate a cer tain sum of money to be expended in this great work Of course thestates counties and local communities should be expected to cooperate A little aid from the general government would be a wonderful encouragement to all tbe people I hear a number of speakers here saying that we must stirup Congress Now I want to Impress you with the idea that we must first educate the people When the people are in favor of national aid in building good roads congressmen will be in favor of it and not until then They are not going ahead of the people- I see no reason why the general government should not reach out its strong arm and help the people of this country get better means of communication I want to see this movement pushed with all the energy tbat is characteristic of the American peo ple When we undertake to do any thing In this country we do it and do It well We have started out for bet ter roads and we are going forward on this line till we have as good roads as can be found anywhere in the world In these remarks Colonel Brlgbam has sounded the keynote of the good roads campaign The masses of the people must be aroused and Organization is the principal means be employed Conventions should be held and associations should be organ zed in all sections of the country It is not enough to get out a crowd o professionaUToad reformers to make Thde and progressive men in all walks of life to arouse theindlilerent to convince the objectors and to get up a wave popular enthusiasm for better roads Untirthls is done uo important r fj rsults wljlBe accomplished dv 0 J y x THE CATTLE TRADE The Lexington Gazette iu speaking of the sales of export cattle says The activity is the same which usually strikes the Bue Grass region this season of the year and the farmers are poorly satisfied with ths values which herds are bringing Kentucky beeves last year at this time were worth about eight cents a pound in Louisville while thlsycar they are bringing Only five cents Some of the best steers that can be secured are selling around 45 against 375 last year at tbe same time For that reason breeders have little Incentive to rush their sales and are holding with greater persistency than usual in hopes that the advance of the season and the foreign demand will enable them to dispose of their holdings at better values than they can now get The cattle raised in the blue grass region of this state are the most superior tbat exporters can se cure as they make beeves of a super ior quality and will stand shipment with greater hardihood than the run of cattle purchased elsewhere EXJECTS CURISTS COMING Rev James Aiken Smith pastor of the Sixth Presbyterian church Cincin nati in an address before the Presby terian church declared that he could see in conditions and progress of the world signs of the second coming of Christ He based his conclusions on tbe existence of similar conditions when Christ first came to this earth Hesald The Bible states that the end shall comewhen all nations have heard the Word of God and that has surely come to pass The growth of our missionaries has been marvelous in the last century and while they once numbered twentyfive at the be ginning of the last century they now number 50000 and every nation has been reached The Dlb calso says that tbe world will be in a religious and educational turmoil and students of events know tbat never in the worlds history has there been as much disagreement in these matters espec ally educational for no educators can agree on what today constitutes an education Daniel Dougherty a resident of Columbus 0 appealed to the court for protection from his two sons and it was then learned by the public tbat two factions of the family have lived In the same house for years without holding any communication The father and one ot his sons do their own cooking in part of the house the mother and two of her boys doing the same in a different section of the demicile The father wno Is well oil declares that threats against his life have been made by the sons who stick to the mother GENERAL NEWS It is said that the corn crop of Ne

placed in a casket inclosed in a burglarproof wet allic box or vault so constructed that once the lid was shut and locks snap ped intoplace the vauld could not be opened until after several hours of work unless dynamite wes used Be cause of his wealth it ws deemed ad visable to take all precautions against ghouls The lid of the vault is fasten ed with twelve automatic locks and bars aid to open the vault it would be necessary to saw through every bar This work could only be done by hand and would require twentyfour hours accomplish As another precaution against grave robbers a watchman keeps gaurd over the grave by niget He sleeps under a tent near the grave and is fully preparod to resist any attempt to remove the body from the vault The 11th district republicans didnt know how bad they wanted to go to Congress until Hon Vincent forcing died A number of the candidates to succeed him would hardly make good soostables and they have set up their lightning rods not with the hope of being struck with the nomination but thinking possibly they might be hit at some stageof the game There are some 20 candidates in all and each day brings out two or three more Repub IIcans love ofllce about

grafting in the postal department of the nation it is refreshing to find evidence that all the staff are not tarred with the same stick of suspi cion and criminal accusation First Assistant Postmaster General Wynne has just repeated the proof that he at least will not stand for any imposition upon the department and the people In the matter of the postal order supplies which are furnished by contractors he promptly re jected the first bids because his knowl edge of the printing business convinc ed hint that the figures demanded were exhorbitant The contract Is for tour years and the total amount is large The second bidding brought the figures down to a reasonable level and General Wynne has closed a con tract that saves the goxernment 000 over the first bids and 9000 from the previous contract making a net saving of 60000 for the people Throughout all the postal trouble- this official standing next to the de partment of chief hasstood resolutely for full Investigation and publicity He has refused to consider that pub tic business should be done less care fully and honestly than private business His motto has been tbatJIbe serves his party best who serves his country best and wjth that cenVlC thin he has Insisted that those who have abused their offices and made personal merchandise of the public andd punished as common rascals Iris to the honor of the newspaper profession that General Wynne was chosen from it to his present station He is a good example of the fair and square journalist who in Washington serve the American public with gov ernment news and will not

Supt of Public Instruction J H FUQUA For Commissioner of Agriculture HUBERT VREELAND ForC lark of Court of Appeals MORGAN OHINN FOR RAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON 0 0 McOHORD In last weeks issue of the Spec tutor a full column was devoted to showing up the Editor of the News That article contains four distinct charges namely That we hate and despise the Spectator that we discontinued tho paper and or dered our advertisement oat of it when it changed its politicts in 1896 that we established the the News to drive the Spectator out of business that wo appeal to you to vote for Mr Rollin Hurt for Circtit Judge The full weight of that article is intended to stir up a foeliug against the News to induce Republicans ti stand firm for their puliciition and put the bayonet to ours It goes back to the grave of 1896 and seeks to unearth a ghost to frighten and prejudice the intelligent reading people of this section against the News It has all along been a willing worker to keep up preju dice to pitch sneers at us and ma lign traduce and vilify the entire Democratic paaty and it is no worse today than twelve months ago No man who fails to see as it sees who has conviction and courage but fails to indorse its policy or support its party can hope to shun its violent denuncia tions It seems willing to rob the grave of forgetfulnbss to work in the myer of discord and disunion of our people to advance its inter est and serve its party bosses It preaches the doctrine that Democrats are thieves and denounces the Democratic press as Gobelite organs of misrepresentation The editor of the News has watched its course and shunned its policy be lieving that no man no paper has a right to measure tho honesty and good intentions of free and untrammeled Kentuckians We answer the charges above named as follows FIrst our feeling for the Spectator is not so warm as for a brother It is not hatred it is not envy but disgust Second we were not taking the Spectator when it saw the vision of 1896 but did settle with the publisher for our advertisement whichwas discontined at that time The people of this town and county will remember that the first issue of that paper after the change contained a cartoon in which the Democrats were represented as a r pack of hounds chasing capital from this country We squared accounts and have no further apology Third we established the News believing it a good business venture and hoping to accomplish good for our town and this section of the State Up to date we have no regrets for thin act Whether it has been of worth to the moral industrial and social advancement of this section we leave with those jKmiliir with its iJj efforts and acquainted with thri changed conditions of our county and town We recognize our ina bility to change the political con f ditions of this county State or nation but feel that it is not a rime to appeal to the intelligence v of this district to vote for Mr i 1s r I Rollin Hurt a lawyer a gentle man of known ability who possesses every qualification in the highest form so essential to the discharge of the duties of so im portant an office as Circuit Judge His only sin is that he is a Demo crat although his opponent has a longer Democratic record having fought the Republican party from its cradle on through its varied stages of existence down to 1890 Then keeping house for the Old Bourbon Democracy he somehow fled from it and by the use of modern methods known to the people of this district he received the nomination irom the party he has so forcefully denounced from boyhood days until time has wrinkled his forehead whitened his hair dimmed his sight and partially destroyed his hearing No man in all this country has a stronger straighter Democratic recoid than Hon H G Baker No man has striven harder to beat back the onward march of Republicanism When Demoora- oy was strong and powerful he sought its honors and received them Political conditions have changed here j the infant in the cradle of 18GO which withstood his deathly strokes has become a gi ant and he seeks to become its mater relegating old time leaders It is for the people of this section to determine whether the News dwells in the realms of hatred and abuse or whether its fights have been the outcome of unwarranted attacks BE ON TILE ALERT S W Hager Chairman of the State Campaign Committee writes us as follows The Democrats should not be fooled as to the methods of the Re publican State Campaign Com mittee The Chairman o f the Republican Committee is Dr W Godfrey Hunter whose way of conducting a campaign is unique He now has secret headquarters at the Gait House in Louisville and is conducting the campaign of his party behind closed doors He is endeavoring to create the impression throughout the State that tbe Republicans are disorgan ized and are taking no interest in the election Ho is also endeav orng to create the impression among the Democrats that Bel knap has no chance and that his followers have praotally given up the fight However it is learned from absolutely trustworthy souro es that Dr Hunter is using all his skill to effect a complete organi zation in every precinct in the State and that all of this is being done with the greatest secrecy and with the emyloyment of all the dark lantern methods known It is also learned from the same sources that the Republicans have a larger campaign fund this year than ever before and they are re lying on simply buying the ma jority for Belknap in order to get this State in line in the President ial race in 1904 Realizing the importance of the fight this fall the Republican National Committee has sent thousands of dollars to Kentucky and this vast sum has been greatly augmented by subscriptions from big corporations and by contnbu tlOns of the Federal Machine I hioh contrary to law has forced minor employees of the govern ment to give money from their saleriesIt long been Dr Hunters boast that he can carry Kentucky if he has the money to buy the votes The Democrats in the coming election should show Dr Hun ter that the Republican party backed by the National adminis tration the corporations and the Federal Machine cannot buy the suflforage of the people ofl Ken tuoky They should show him that it makes no difference to what ex tent the State is flooded with mon ey that the vote of th3 Common wealth cannot be purchased and that they believe in majority rule The Bepablican party organs all overthe country in the preeent financial crisis are playing pohtfss by calling J Pierpont Morgan sev eral varieties of names He certainly has treated that party shameful by taking a tunable at this particular time Never theless some little consideration should be shown liy syndicate politics r the creature of its cnyn creation r Mr Belknap and the weather were at Greensbuig yesterday f i r It is believed that the rasa for the Republican nomination for Congress in this district will come between Edwards and Hunter It is given out that the Republicans of Kentucky iu Washington and the Administration favor Ed wards The Committee met at Junction City yesterday The Democrats of this State should be dilligent and watchful The Republicans will use all the means they can command to bring out their full strength Let no Democrat stay from tbe polls on the day of election We want the largest majority given for years Very large crowds continue to meet Gov Beckham at every speaking At Somerset last Fri day the number was estimated at 7500 GLENPILLE Mrs J S Chapman who has been confined to her room for several months with paralysis is no better Mrs W L Taylor has been quite sick for several days but is now imp proving We understand that Mr E H Rosenbaum has purchased Mrs Chira Wesleys property and will remove to our town in the near future Mr Jas W Marshall and Mrs Cyotha Marshall have exchanged farms and will remove to them soon Mr John Neat Republican candidate for Circuit Clerk was here a few days ago He had but little to say concerniug his candidacy but seemed to think that a man as well acquainted and as popular as he is from no pone to Little Cake would not be likely to have opposition in this county crrr 5 sw5S E33i3sse55SiMr Joe C Potts one of our neigh bors died on the evening of the 24th after a severe illness of several days His remains were laid to rest in the Helm cemetery about one mile from this place A large crowd attended the burial and the funeral services were ut the M a good communityied in this I see a your Mr Melvin White I was glad to hear from him and to know that he is yet living and as full of fan and vrlticism as ever He wants to know something about some of his old friends Doctor Voils Henry Otterson Seldon Ben nett and others I am sorry I cant give information concerning any of them except the old doctor Am glad to say he is still living and hlsuppoed- to be near 100 years old He has aban doped the use of strlnlgns and tonlgans altogether in his practice and has given them over to Dr S W Strange while he himself uses hellbuck as a remedy for all diseases I understand the boys are aiming to have him administer a large dose to Belknap in November GLEN ILLS NO 2 We had a good rain on the 1st and plowing for wheat has begun in Johnson is now a citizen of our wnhavlng recently moved to the I S Taylor property which he bought

to be a skeered feeling creeping over the wiser and more calculating republicans of the country The signs of the times are not entirely to their lik ing and they are even frank enough to indulge publicly in sup ositions that indicate a lack of supreme confidence in the outcome of the campaign of 1904 The situation in New York city is a cause for republican anxiety Under the name of fusiontheir only chance for successthey are seeking to keep the city from poll ing its usual great majority for a democratic ticket They realize that should the democrats win Greater New York against fusion combine the state of New York will almost surely go into the democratic electoral column next year That prospect is not pleas ing to President Roosevelt or his party managers They have great er dread of the national effects of a Tammany victory in New York city this fall than of any other po litical event on the card Marylands condition is also troubling them Senator Gorman has pulled the democracy there shapeeare ic victory There is an uneasy feeling as to Massachusetts Governor Bates whose nomination can not be avoided is not so popular as be fore he was tried iu the guber a torial chair He has alienated republicuwearge promised because of the growing demand of Massachusetts manu freetMassachusetts is debatable ground Socialism is growing there at the expense of the republican vote Should the state go democratic in November it will make a broad breach in the national republican bulwarksThe Evening Star cautiously but clearly intimates that Ohio is giving cause for wor ry to the republican managers Even if Tom Johnson should fail of election it eeenn certain he is going to cut the republican major ity in the state to a dangerously low figure and make the campaign of 1934 one of great difficulty and doubtIt admits that the democrats have the better prospect of winning in Nebraska this year and supposes that would mean its sure loss in the presiden tial election of next
