Morgan has declared unequivocally in favor of a white mans party He wants a plank Incorporated in tile next Democratic National platform declaring that the National Democratic party is and always has

insplte of the personal and official 6inflnenceotPresidentRoosereltshow how pronounced the public sentiment questionoWithout the negro vote Republicans in Kentucky would never have the Weretthis Sore eliminated entirely outside of the Eleventh Congressional district tro elect a single District officer The white Republicans have no use for the negro except at election times They use him simply as a tool to father their toPlaseof power and profit At the election held last week it was demonstrated more forcibly than ever before that the negro backed by unscrupulous white Republicans is a dangerons factor in politics This renewed gressiveness on the part of the negr was largely due to the policy of the National administration on the race uestton Itisestimated that fourfiths of the theoarae employees of labor and pay taxes ac cordinglyt and it is not surprising that the dominant party should feel some thing of restlessness at some of the methods employed by scheming and unscrupulous politicians to use the ne gro as a miserable tool for their own personal and political advancement But the magnificent Democratic ma jority in the State will help clear the atmosphere and relieve much of the anxiety that has been felon this connection The result of the election last week makes certain the fact that the Democratic party will continue in power for years to come and that th negro as a political power will be of of much of his importance on elec tlon day This will be better for the negro and better for the peace of the people Negro political domination is not

better than an adoption o of the cumbrous system now used by the government and express compa nies What the business people of the country need is a system of bank trans fers whereby Jones in Atlanta can g to a bank and deposit 8100 or any oth er sum to be paid to Smith in New York or Seattle on the same day by bank in either of those cities Th bank in the receiving city notrhe- Smith that it has a sum to his credit and that with his identification en ables him to get it at once The cost of the transfer including telegram and bank commissions is held put of the remlttanceor arranged between Jones who pays ft or Smith who is the bene ficiary A system kindred to this has been in vogue inGermany for some years an has resulted in th tremendous facili ration of money exchanges wilhim the

will come up again the coming winter and few more portant bills will be presented Dur ing the past year soma quiet work has been done and It Is now thought pos sible to secure enouga support in the Senate and especially In the louse oti Representatives to make this a lawI A large number of members from different sections of the country south and west stand ready to sup port the Brownlow bill and

as second claa mall matter WED NOV 18 1903 We are reminded of the old adage Time Flies since it teem s so short a space from tho intro duotion of tho News to the completion of tho sixth year and theI beginning of the seventh In this the first issue of volume seven we feel it a pleasure as well as a duty to return our thanks to the many who have patronized the News of fice in any of departments Be ginning six years ago with a crip pled plant without experience and laboring under many difficulties common to the building of a busi ness we have had some experience lessons but from the beginning our main purpose was not to swell a bank account but to build the paper and to aid in the advauc ment of our town and county an adjoining counties Whether the News has been of any worth to this county and this part of the State is left for others to determine but our motives can only be measured in what wo attempt to do and so much in what wo ac- c mplish We have just reasons to believe that the News has ac complished good for this commu nity but sincerely regret that it could do no more than it has done While seeking to advance the pub lie good we have endeavoredto ex pand our own business and along this line our efforts have not been barren nor unfruitful For the last six months we have been mail lug more than twothousand papers weekly jour advertising pat ronage has kept pace with our sub scription and our job presses have been kept constantly running The closing of the sixth ytar rounds up our most successful period and tho seventh js here with brighter prospects than any that proceeded it For all this we aro thankful to the many who ap preciate our efforts and who make it possible for au increase of our business The NBAS will not change its policy aor relax its of forts in the lines marked out in the beginning but iLpcssible will more earnestly press such measures as will bring good to our people and our county Wo realize that as a community we can not afford to stand still it is too dangerous to be content with present environ ments We must movekeep pace with the ndvanoment of others or decay is inevitable Wo rejoice iu the fact that a good healthy public spirit pervades our county Our people are gradually divesting themselves of the disadvantages of 50 years ago then are moving ut into new avenues and slowly but surely realizing the fact that every man owes a part of his time tal ents and means to the public that individual prosperity ad vans ment and enjoyment Jargry de pends on n similar public condi tion That Adair County feels the stimulus of an aroused sentim ut and determination to secure bet ter conditions is evidenced in many marked improvments within the last six years Her public roads are being remodled her public buildings throughout the county neat and attractive four substau cial iron bridges span the streams an increased interest in educatou and a wonderful development in educational facilities The News finds much pleasure in the awakening of public sentiment that brings such good results it de- lIghts in improvments whether in bridges roads or schools whether in the center or the remotest part- of our county and rejoices in the advancement of any and every county in tho state We desire to mention the fact that we have had from the beginning of the News tho solid time and talents of Mr J E Murrell a newspaper man from choice ability and experi ence known to as many people in this part of the State as any man and whose friends are as numerous as his acquaintances Whatever success the News has made its standing end

along in peace and happiness The News like most of offices has much room for improvement and since we belibve that a brighter future is in store for this section the fertile plains and thriving towns of the West have been abandoned in our mind and we are hereto dwell with friends to share in the blessings and adversities of this section We have determined to make the News office what it ought to be if within our power and trust to serve our patronage departmentIise a faithful allegiance to Southern Kentucky in all her efforts toward advancement and earnestly trust that the people will mete to the News such patronage as it may merit IIf all the towns in Kentucky are filled with residents entertaining the same ideas as the citizens of Columbia the Courier Journal must have a tremendous circula tion in the State It is under stood that Democrats support the paper but all intelligent Republi cans take it and read it knowing that it is the only morning daily that gives reliable information In the business houses and in the banks you will find the Courier Journal Six men were killed one was fatally crushed and three others were seriously injured in a colli sion ot Lovisvillo and Nashville freight trains at Tilfords near Lebanon Junction Ic was the worst railroad wreck in Kentucky in several years The monetary loss is great three huge locomo tives and sixteen cars being demolished A n explosion o f dynamite following the wreck set fire to the debris and the vic tims were cremated A special from Washington to the Courier Journal says Rep resentative Smith introduced two bills each appropriating 175000 for the construction of a lock and dam in Green and Salt Rivers He also reintroduced bills for the construction of public buildings at Elizabethtown Bardstown and Lebanon also a bill asking for an apprpriation of 12000 for the purchase of a national road between Lebanon and tho National cemetery The next Kentucky Legislature will have a Democratic majority of seventysix on joint ballot In the last Assembly the Democratic majority was sixty The next Senate will havo a membership made up of thirty one democrats and seven republicans and the House will have
