the Phlllippine Islands will soon be taken by the Republican administra lion True to the Instincts of graft and loot the the administration in stead of proceeding Itself to the build lag of railroads Intends to let out the privilege to capital in this country and guarantee to that capital the terest on the Investment In other worM this country Is opening places for the investment of capital and guar anteeing to the capital Immunity from loss TheY propose to authorize the Philippine government to execute legislative guarantee of 4 per cent per annum on 540000000 of bonds for railroad construction thoseJslands and the bill will be introduced this iT l week by Chairman Cooper of the House Committee on Insular Affairs The bill will bar out foreign capital so as to give the capitalists of Wall St the monopoly of the game This ad ministration has been persistent in its efforts to get the good people of the country to believe that the Wall St interests are dead against it for polIt- Ical reasons and for political effect Does this move look like it It Secre tary Taft thought that it would has ten the civilization and education of the Islands to construct railroads therein why do not the government engage in the business itself instead of paying capital to do so It would be a grand object lesson in the govern ment ownership of railroads and pub lie utilities for the government to un dertake this enterprise Instead of that the administration sells out to the Wall Street sharks and guarantees them immunity from loss and a sure return on the capital invested and in return they will get a handsome cam paign contribution This is the way this thing looks to a man who is on the inside of things at the national capi tal and I think I have called the turn1I It has n ver occurred to these exploiters grafters and looters that this legislation will clearly be uncon stitutional But what in the name of all that stands for graft does Republi can party care about the constitution When the constitution stands in the way of anything a Republican wants to do he simply steps on it and mash es it into the mire Until the voters of the country realize that they have It in their power to stop this sort of thing It will continue ad libitum ad inlflnltum When wilt they see the drift and get busy They are having much sport at the Department of State over an Inelastic provision of law which requires that department to compile and issue in a separate volume the statutes enacted at each session of Congress The stc sion of last November enacted only one measure a joint resolution providing for the payment of mileage to the members This is bound up however in a dignified little volume by Itself with as much elaboration as iMt were a collection of budget bills and gener al legislation That simply is a straw that shows what the Republican ad ministration will do when it makes up its mind to get busy on any subject It calls an extra session of the Con gress and has it in session for a month without single result Not one thing of benefit to the peo pie and at a cost to them of over two hundred thousand dollars That is the way the Republicans conserve terests of the people Bats The Hon John Sharp Williams floor leader of the Democracy in the House of Representatives has introduced a bill for the relief of the suf ferers by fire at Baltimore by rebate ditties on building material and suspension of certain internal revenue ifu taxes By so doing he has again put the Republicans In a bole soaped the sides and pulled up the ladder If they refuse to pass the measure they will go up against a precedent estab- lIshed when Chicago fire occurred in 1811 and thereby rob many honest men who have been unfortunate Ifthey do pass it they will admit the Demo cratic contention that the tariff is a tax and that the tax is paid by the consumers of the country and not by the foreigners a s maintained by them They are up against it This bill cuts both ways like the niggers coon trap It catches them a cumin and a goln Let the galled jade wince There is much comment here in Democratic circles anent the recent editorial in the Cincinnati Enquirer the paper owned and controlled by John R McLean endorsing Honl Wm Randolph Hearst and his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the presidency Up to the present time tbat paper was one of the papers that studiously avoided the mention of the name of Mr Hearst in any connection and it Is one of the worst things any paper could do to any man to to say anything about him at neglectr all were trying their band at ignoring Mr Hearst but the sentiment all over the country that has manifested itself for him and in his interest has chang ed the aspect of things here among the leading papers of the country They are compelled to regonize the fact that the great common people of the country are for Mr Hearst and there is no barometer watched closer by the politicians than the sentiment of the people Some men here are called leaders In reality there are no leaders here They all are followers and subserviently so When a bell wether starts out and calls to the flock they simply get busy The minds of the majority of the members of Congress in both House and Senate were in a chaotic condition concerning the Democratic nomination for the presidency until the people got busy all over the country They were watching for thesigns Now that they see them they are getting busy The editorial mentioned above Is quo of the signs of the times and all of them have seen it and read it aright Among many other complimentary things which the Cincinnati Enquirer says of Mr Hearst In this editorial are the following Mr Hearst is unquestionably a man of mark and many sober minder men write him in their book of estimation as a man of hisyearshaSha1a special period of grand development In his private affairs he is so far above petty personal assaults that there need be no dwelling on that point He is of the stuff that honest people make heroes of Starting in his business life with a handsome inheritance be has not been a drone or a drawback in CONTINUED QN4thAGE DRESSED LUMBER We the

people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia rostoflice as class mail matter WEDNESDAY 16 1904 The most absorbing topic in this part of the country is the proposition to build an electric railroad from Columbia to Leba nonThis has been before our people for nearly two years Its promoter has had many difficul ties to overcome in securing the rights necessary to carry through such an enterprise but the sur vey has been made by an engin eer selected by a construction company that proposes to do the work and his report of the grades curves and casts is a most favorable one The time is up for the formation of a company to take this enterprise in hand and push it to completion Mr Az bill has done a splendid work and now asks the people to join in this development A meeting was held one night last week in which a committee of eight was appointed to solicit subscriptions for stock in the company Just as soon as a sufficient amount of of stock has been placed the company will be organized and push the work until it is completed As we understand it The United States Trust Company of Louis ville and The Tennis Construc tion Company have agreed with Mr Azbill to finance and build the road provided an organiza tion is effected as outlined by them They have offered their suggestions on this line which opens up the way for the build ing of the road provided the people in this part of the State will take a reasonable interest We are now facing a proposition of tremendous importance to this section of country Its decision means the rise or fall of values the opening or closing of opportunities the expansion or con traction of business It means to move out into new avenues of progress or sink into the mire of slothfulness and decay The weaLor woe of country is at stake and how it will be settled is a question for those to decide who are in position to give it life or death The proposition is reason able the investment safe and on lylacks the touch of a few of our wealthy men to make it a suc cess It is not our mission to ad vise nor our purpose to direct but we ask every citizen who has in terest in this part of the state to calmly and deliberately weigh the importance of this proposition and then act as seems best for himself and his country but mark well that indifference will rob this country or any other out of the most valuable enterprises It will stifle laudable ambition par alyze aspiration and deaden hope and determination It will give a pass to our enterprising young men to go far beyond our borders and extend an invitation to the slothful and indifferent to lead our procession A few men in town and county have it within F their power toturn the tide to 1make our country blossom as the z rose They do not have to as s sume an undue risk to accomplish i this but to merely take a conservative one one that figures out as well as any similar enterprise knewn to be profitable Again the advantage to accrue general ly would bring buyers and in creased values and give vitality and life Dead towns are not hard to find Opportunities to shake off undesirable environ ments are not presented every season The greatest mistake any town or community can make y is to turn a deaf ear enterpris res that will develop and build rSWe trust that our people through- outV this section will grasp the tpresent opportunity and not quib ble over technicalities nor stand 5 l divided when union is so essen bal r 1 t Fully four hundred of the bills tr introduced in the Kentucky House tsat this session are dead because cofnon tion tp jft t 1frf r The aspirants for the Demo cratic nomination for Governor of Missouri are heating up the De mocracy of that State until it is showing a close relationship to old Kentucky There are four aspirants Folk Reed Gantt and Hawes and from what we can learn a combination has been formed to down Folk the other three working in harmony to ac complish this end The great question is not a test of Democ racy but of policy Mr Folk the St Louis Circuit Attorney the man who has unearthed gi gantic frauds and who has so courageously and successfully prosecuted them is making the fight on his record of purgation The others adroitly seek to push in other issues but it is clear to every mind that the fight has nothing behind it save the unre lenting war made on a brave able official for exposing bribes and grafters who have fattened from the public crib Mr Folk asks a primary the others are clamorous for a convention The one is willing to rest his case with the voters the others pre fer the tactics of wireworkers in convention Missouri Democrsts should be congratulated if they succeed in ousting the machine that is willing to cover fraud and rottenness for the emoluments of office and the privilege of barter ing valuable public franchises Hang a negro in the South for a brutal crime and the papers of the North go into fits What are they saying now of the very orderly city of Springfield Ohio where one thousand men band ed together last week and hung a Kentucky negro They of course do not justify the act but in speaking of it the language employed is far different to what would have been set forth had it been a Southern mob The Ohio crowd is said to have been very orderly but was that relief to the dead negro What does it guarantee to the living ones What we have read of Mr R D Hills brief in the Caleb Powers case impresses us that the writer is not a very great lawyer He thinks the trial Judge erred in not instructing the sheriff to summon men of both political parties Would it not be abright idea for a Circuit Judge to sa- to y a sheriff you summon for ju rors men of all political parties giving the politics of the man on trial Mr Hills position is not tenable and the Court of Appeals will so decide The case against Mrs Annie Oppenheimer of Russell ville Ky has been settled by a jury It will be remembered that she was arrested in Cincinnati charg ed with murdering her newborn babe by poisoning The trial came to an end last week and the woman was acquitted In company with her parents she left immediately for Russellville The habit of swearing is not as common as it used to be in this community Gentlemen no longer use the language with unvarnished freedom Undoubtedly many youths who were not brought up to swear do swear now and then under provocation but there is all things considered an increasing respect for the English language There will be a warm time in the Democratic State Convention to be held in June when the friends of Hon J N Kehoe and Judge Lewis lineup for the Chairmanship of the Cen tral and Executive Committees Both gentlemen stand high in the party and the selection of either would be satisfactorily The bill introduced by Senator Burnam to require all counties to maintain pest houses for the de tention of people afflicted with contagious diseases was passed in the Senate and it is said it will pass the House and become a law Berea College will have to go The Senate last Friday passed the bill prohibiting the coeducation of the races in Kentucky The Governor will sign the

County Times THE BEEF TRUST Farmers aud stockraisers throughout the country who have been puzzling their brains in an effort to ac count for the low price of cattle when dressed beef is higher than ever be fore will find much food for thought in a resolution introduced by Repre sentatlve Martin of South Dakota authorizing the Secretary of Commerce and Labor to Investigate th Beet Trust The resolution will b favorably reported to the House and Representative Martin believes he will be able to secure its adoption notwithstanding this is a Presidential election year and The Republicans pect the Beef Trust along with all other Trusts to contribute liberall to their campaign corruption fund Representative Martin charges that before the attorney general brought suit against tae Beet Trust Its buyers met each night and agreed upon the price It would pay for cattle the next day This was declared by the courts to be in restraint of trade and an in junction was issued restraining th packers from thus fixing the price Now the agents of the Trust hold no meetings but when a carload of cattle arrives in Chicago only one buyer bids for it and the owner Is forced accept whatever price Is offered A South Dakota shipper took a trainload of steers to Chicago but could get only one offer Being curI- ous he remained about the stock yards and discovered that in the nigh the herd was divided into seven parts each of the big packing houses receiv- Ing its share This combination is not confined to Chicago alone but extends to each of the principal packing centers of the country A rancbman took a train load of cattle to Omaha but dissat isfied with the offer made there be shipped the steers to Chicago There he was offered exactly the same price which he was compelled to accept and of course lost the freight from Oma ha to Chicago The ranchman that as soon as be left Omaha th Trusts buyer In Chicago was notified of the price offered and bad the price fixed for him when he arrived The cattle men ot the West are com plaining that cattle arc lower than fcr five years In spite of the fact thau dressed beet is higher than ever and wherever the Trust has a packing tabllshment the price of cattle Is th same as at all the other points where its buyers dominate the market Tbe Beef Trust like all other trusts has Its trap set so as to rob the people both acomln1
