at sea TO BUY KENTUCKY The details of the conference recente ly held in Indianapolis have just come known and it brings to light a startling condition or affair reveal log how recklessly txe Republicans are bargaining In order to steal the vote of the Commonwealth and give it Belknap and the Republican State ticket List week John W Yerkes Commissioner of Internal Revenue slipped into Indianapolis from Washington and was met there by Senator Fairbanks of Indiana the fugitive W S Taylor Dr W Godfrey Hunter Chairman of the Republican State Campaign Committee J H Newman the figurehead chairman of the Committee and Collector ET Franks of Owensbofo The results of that con furecce arc numerous In the fIrst place fugitive Taylor who has always been Dr Hunters closest friend armed to write to his friends in the mountains asking them to support Hunter for Congress in that dlstrlct In the second place in return for a promise of Kentuckys support for anything he may want Senator Fairbanks agreed to see that Taylor is protected in Indiana and it is said- thationator Fairbanks futher prom= to see that a campaign fund was in raised among the Indiana Republicans- to be sent to Kentucky just before the coming election The Republican if campaign committee have a larger cor ruptlon fund this year than they have ever had atany previous election con sequently when Mr Faltbanks con tribution is received from Indiana the sum will have grown to enormous proportionsIt of the Republicans to flood the State with this money dur- Ing the laSt days of the campaign and to use it in an endeavor to buy the floating vote and to corrupt the elec officers Mr Yerkes was more responsible for the nomination of Mr Belknap than anv other man and Dr Hunter is now managing Mr Belkuaps campaign therefore even the presence of Mr Yerkes and Dr Hunter at a confer ence with fugitive Taylor is sufficient or all thinking people to see clearly that thcRapublican leaders of Ken including the nominee for Gov trnor and the patron saint Yerkes indorse Taylor Powers and all the other men charged vlth the mur derof Wiliian Goebel No one doubts a that Taylor is lending his assistance to to the Kentucky Republicans now cause he knows he will be benefited by overthrow of Democratic govern went in Kentucky- It is astounding to see that Taylor has sufficient influence auioun any set of people in Kentucky to address letters to them to secure their support of any candidate In their presence at Indianapolis Mr Yerkes and Mr Franks are encouraging Internal RevI enue employes throughout the State to take an active interest in politic t5 which is in direct violation of the Fed eral Statutes T b e conference a t Indianapolis brought to light any number of real = cms why thinking persons should cast their vote against time Republican par ty which allows such men as Taylor jiud Hunter to control and direct its affairs11JIAT MIGHT HA VE 21EEX la vain the Kerpant endeavored to

impossible were eliminated from the language of the young at least Because the road is rough and toilsome and the labor hard and vexing Is it right to falter when the prize is well worth the struggle The crown of victory is reserved for those who strive and however accl dent may seem to elevate another there is no royal road to fortune Thee victories worth having are rarely won by the I cants on the lips of the young no words sound so miserable as the shrinkings that betrays the cow aids spirit Seek not to do beyond your strength but having measured your means and faculties consider you can afford to tall Accept the fullest measure of toil and struggle bravely toward the top Remember that your burden bearing will give youe strength if you carry the load aright My dear boys you cannot afford to be a cowardly My dear girls your motto life should be to succeed Scout the idea as you please it Isctnot our stars but ourselves that are to blame we are underlings Climb Achieve Fall if you must fall with your hands reaching upward A determination to succeed and a persistent effort toward success have made more than one name Immortal Do not acknowledge defeat a COL BELKNAP ON KFNTUCKX In his his speeches Col Morris 3 Belknap the Republican nominee for Governor has made and is making a serious reflection upon the women and men of Kentucky who are known thea world over as the truest and best the most hospitable and the most chivalrous In his opening speech at Mum fordsville Col Belknap made this startling statement Our young men are now hearing what manner of men these oldtime Kentuckians were and from theme comes the demand upon us for civic conditions that will restore to them their birthright We can not stop our ears to the call and with us now lies the rcsponslbllito making this State lit place for our sons and daughters live in This statement shows that Col Bel knap has indeed a poor opinion of the people of his own State He says thatf Kentucky is no fit place in which toI rear boys and girls Col Belknap Is probably the only person who has ever made such an expression concerning the old Commonwealth The citizens of this State have alIways prided themselves upon their Old Keatucky Home and Col Bel kuap is the first person on record who has ever said that Kentucky was no place to rear boys and girls Col Bel knapmust have a poor opinion of the State and the people of the State or he would have made no such statement in his opening speech The good citi zens of the State should repudiate such a reflection upon the women o t the Cotumonwerlth by

the tact that she had been assisting a sick neighbor last evening her parents supposed she was spending the night there and made no inquiry when she failed to return home The police officials are without a clew OBITUARY On Monday morning September 21 1003 this community asI intelligenceyW H Wheathad been suddenly called to meet her God She had not beery sick but very short time and hersndden death came unexpectedly to her many friends and especially to parents who had never heard of her sudden illness She was a sincere Christian a devoted wife and loving and mod l mother She was nearing her thirtieth birthday She was reared ill Adair county and was a daughter- of Robert Humphrey She had many kind and loving friends in fact all who knew her loved her a amiable disposition and Christian characterIIn her death the community has lost a friend the church an obedi nt member the household a de voted wife and three little boye dear and loving mother But what is to us an irreparable loss is to her everlasting gain and peace So we console ourselves with this truth that as she was an earnest Christian and in the very last hours of her life gave all the evidence that we couldd wish of her hopes of joy we should not weep and that while we grope about in sorrow for few more days that she has gono with the heavenly cohorts to sing tho sweet anthems of heaven So dear husband fathei moth er brother sister and dear little baby boys she has only bade you adieu for a little while and if you re only faithful you will meet heri again to part WHITE- Out in Kansas which is always dOIng something out of the usual line the school boards in a Dumber of counties and districts adopt d an iron oleo rule that they would employ no female teachers who would not agree neither to flirt become engaged nor marry while held said positions The schoolmistresses had nothing to do but submit to tho cruel de oision as they regarded it but bided their time and soon had things all their own way An election came off and the horrid men who constituted the school boards were ingloriously defeated and women were elected in their stead and now the schoolmaams can flirt to their hearts content and love and be loved just likeI other people BRAIN LEAKS ItJiakes at least two to gossip one to talk and one to listen The trouble with some people is that they mistake liberty for

It will taken to the Clrcuitcourt TWO WOMEN President Roosevelt basthrongh his postmaster general removed from the Greenwood Del postJ office Miss Huldah B Todd on the specious plea that she is ob noxious to the mouthpiece of Gas Addicks Senator Allee Miss Todd had served five years as postmistress at Greenwood and had given the fullest satisfaction to the patrons of the office She was in no sense obnoxious to them She was first appointed to a fury ar term by President McKinley and after serving that was reap pointed by President Roosevelt She had served one year under her reappointment when her official head was chopped off tc meet the political demands of addioks and Cox tendered her resignation as postmistress at Indiano la Miss but her resignation hue not beau accepted For about year now she has been carried upon the salary roll of the govern ment on the presidents orders though she has rendered not one cents worfeh of service She was personally obnoxious in her official capacity to the vast majority of the patrons of the office who had the temerity to say so in resolutions adopted in mass meeting She recognized the feat that her presence in the postoffice was obnoxious to the vast maiority of patrons of the office and ten ered her resignation What explanation can be given of this wjdely different treatment accorded by President Roosevelt- to these two women Can it be possible that negro mgnia has been carried to the point where the blank sister is pro tooted and coddled and fed upon government pap simply becance is black while the white lady s thrown out of office solely be cause somebody who is the favor ite of some politician wants the job These questions are pertinent not impertinent The country would like to know the exact at titude of

This ends the talk of his scratching tho ticket Immediately tho majority part left for London while Mr Hunter and his friends proceeded to rc organize and hold the convention in the hall they had vacated Mr Hunter is the nominee of that convention but whether he is the legal nominee of the party is yet to be determined It is their trouble and they must adjust it We know too little about Mr Ed wards and have heard too much of Dr Hunters dark lantern methods in politics to have any preference The Eleventh district Republicans seem to be a little at sea just now since their convention split wide open at Middlesboro last Sat urday and the larger half adjourn ed to meet in London on Monday Mr Edwards of London aided by Mr Stevens of Whitley organized the convention They went up against Mr Hunter and his allies and were victorious but before the committee on credentials had fine ished its work a motion was made to adjourn to meet in London Capitol No 2on Monday The vote stood 173 for the motion and 173 against it the chair voting for the adjournment and removal cast the dye that meant to pack grips and board the train The Republicans of this county hold a convention at the court

Republican party in Adair since he reached his majority was a candidate for the instructed vote of his home county having announced through the Spectator that he was before his party for Congress The conven tion buried Toms fidelity to his party and appointed delegates and instructed them for Dr Hunter It may be that the convention did not consider Mr Neat in the race but was it just to slap a home man in the faca Tom Neat possesses tender feelings and his family and friends are built the same way and he should have been spared the humiliation of defeat by his home county AVe are informed that Hon H C Baker stated in his speech in Jamestown last Mon day that he bad hoped that he would have no opposition in his race for Circuit Judge and but for the efforts of Mannie Tutt1 and Charlie Harris ho would have had a clear fieldas these two gentlemen were running Mr Hurt Now in justice to Mr Hurt in justice to the many good citizens of this town and county and in Justice to the hundreds of good citizens from all parts of the district who petitioned Mr Hurt to make the race irrespective of political views we declare Mr Bakers statement a clear miss of tho truth Why such a statement should be made is unknown to us Wo plead guilty of favoring Mr Hurts candidacy but not respon sible for his announcement neith er are we running him He is no one mans candidate no machine made nominee
