Entered at the Columbia as lass mail matter ljWEDIAP1UL 13 1904 A few days ago we received an order from a Lincoln county mer chant for stationery stating that since our representative called he had discovered his need of letter heads and envelopes We wrote him for information regarding quality of goods prices etc Al so suggested that he must be mistaken as to name of represent ative and the firm he represented We have received his reply in which he states that the party who called claimed to represent this office and gave his name as Cook The prices made by this man were far below customary prices of reliable jobhouses and unjust to local printers in whose section such propositions are made and if any thing but cheap goods should be used would result in loss to the firm producing it We desire every body to know and especially honorable compe tition that The News does not seek business under the dark lan tern method that it deals fairly with its competitors and sells its goods on merit The representa tive who sought the order above referred to claimed that he could beat Valtons prices The Inte rior Journal and The Adair Coun ty News are competitors in cer tain territory but they are on the most friendly terms and seek business by fair and honorable methods The News is not will ing to destroy fair and equitable prices already brought to the lowest mark by honorable firms to gain an advantage over a com petitor It refuses to plunge the dagger into a business to collect a few crumbs that might other wise drift away We want busi ness but at living prices and if we fail to get it then we hope that those who do may receive a just reward for their labors Mr C H Murrell is the only gentle man who travels for The News and he has never been in Lincoln county soliciting jobwork The Census Bureau has just is sued a bulletin which gives the estimated population of the Unit ed States for 1903 exclusive of Alaska and the insular posses sions at 79900389 This is an increase of 3905814 since the census of 1900 The population is estimated for 438 cities giving 10000 or more inhabitants in 1900 According to these esti mates New York is now a city of 3716139 inhabitants Chicago is rapidly approaching the two million mark having 1873220 inhabitants Philadelphia has 1 367716 St Louis has just pass ed the 600000 mark and Boston has almost reached it Baltimore has 631313 Cleveland is now a considerable distance ahead of Cincinnatiwhich cities have 414950 and 332934 respectively Buffalo San Francisco Pittsburg Detroit Milwaukee and New Or leans have all greatly increased their populations In the United States District Court at St Louis Judge Adams overruled the motion of Senator J R Burtons attorneys for a new trial and sentenced Burton to six months in jail and impos ed a fine of 2500 Burton was chargedwith accepting a bribe w verdictsThere has been another assas sination in Breathitt county This time James Johnson who was a nephew of the lamented J Marcum vas shot from ambush by Jack Spicer Spicer has been captured He should not be tried in Breathitt county where the Hargises and Callahans hold t tsway The Hearst crowd failed to get in much work at the Kansas Democratic State Convention They only secured six delegates out of twenty IThe St Louis Attorney Folk a candidate for the Dem nomination for Governor is wining as the days go by de spite the combined opposition of three other prominent Democratic candidates Mr Folk has un earthedmore political trickery and corruption and has prosecuted it more successfullYLth any other ofiieer in all the country By his record he has won the great common people but has set the power of fraud and deception against him No man doubts his courage or ability and everyone who believes in a faith ful honest accounting of public officials should rally to his aid The fight is one for honest gov ernment for the overthrow of corruption and the people of other States are watching the battle the result of which may have a salutary effect on other Commonwealths and also on our Federal Government The last weeks primaries and conventions in several counties show the strength of Folk to be much stronger than had been conceded and clearly indicates that he will be the nominee unless the bood lers are more successful in man aging the counties yet to cast their votes It is a fight to the finish and heres hoping that the game attorney will be the next Governor of that great Democratic State that stands fifth in popu lation and wealth and first in its efforts to expel boodlers from positions of public trust The race between Senator Bate and Gov McMillin for U S Senator in Sunny Tennseseeis being settled by county primaries and at this hour the Governor seems to be far in the lead They are both good men true to their party and loyal to their State GRADYVILLE Rev A L Mel and Geo W Flowers spent Thursday at Portland Mrs Sue Grissom and her daughter Miss Lena

was circulating a petition in his home town Wednesday asking the county com missioners to order an election to sub mit the question of local option to the voters of the county Dee Tate a sa loon man of Belgrade requested Trip lett to give up the petition and the re quest being refused Tate struck the preacher several times knocking him down Wright a man working at the Gallatin mill attempted to take Trip letts part and he too was knocked down by Tate Rev Triplett was brought to Boze man Wednesday evening and an ex amination showed that his jaw was broken Dr W A Tudor worked with him all night to set the fractured jaw and has been attending the man very closely Wright is reported as being confined to bed from his injuries A warrant was issued for Tates ar rest on a charge of assault

to plead and was placed under bond of 1200 pending a preliminary hearing of the case which however may be taken directly into the district court on information prepared by Coun ty Attorney Pease It is said that Mr Triplett is in a somewhat serious condition surgical efforts so far Laving failed to properly reduce his fractured jaw TIlE BRIDGE PROPOSITIoV Last week the people of Neats ville appeared before the Fiscal Court andasked for the building of a bridge across the river at that point There were several short speeches made by citizens of Columbia and different parts of the county asking the court to sider this in the most favorable light and to build it if withiri its power A proposition was made to contribute the right of way and to guarantee 750 to aid in its building The court after due consideration re jected the proposition and tendered one of its own to the people of that section as follows On condition that the right of way and 1200 are contributedwe agree to build the bridge in theyear of 1905 and this proposition holds good until the April meeting of next year The court realizes the importance of abridge at that point but after a careful summing up of conditionand a comparison of the the amounts given by others for similar structures decided that the county was not in condi tion to build this year nor to accept so small per cent of its cost when other sections had contributed much more for such structures Not willing to kill the proposition nor to discourage the people who are asking for this improvement they tendered the foregoing proposition which they believed to be reasonable and within the reach of a united effort We have no personal interest in this matter but feel that it would be a great mistake on the part of the people to allow it to fail The proposition is a reasonable one and clearly within the reach of the people to be directly bene fitted and should it fail it would be a serious blow to that part of our county Keep the faith brace

strengthen the belief that General Nelson A Milts retired is conducting a strenuous if still hunt for some party that will nominate him for the presidency For a time he seemed destined to secure the aid of the antiimperialistic crowd of New England in an effort to foist himself upon the democratic par ty but when it was demonstrated that Miles had never b en a dem ocrat entertained no democratic belefs could secure the support of no democrats and that more over there was no chance of those antis of New England exerting any influence upon the democrat io party he wisely decided to turn his attention to other drections This he has done and nomination at the hands of the prohibi tion party seems now to be the goal of his ambition To the chairman of the Venango county Pennsylvania prohibition com mittee General Miles has in re spouse to iuquries bearing upon this subject written from his heart in this wig It remains with my friends to say what services I shall reider further to my country In consequence the bum is on The prohibition national convention is to meet at Indianapolis the last day of June and from that great prohibition ceute- c jmes the statement that the nom inatiou of Miles as good as madeIt not claimed for General Miles that he has ever been a pro hibitionist in his profession cer tainly he has never been in his practice but little differences of this kind will not be permitted to stand in the way of so great a na tionalmovement Warrant for his selection to this high honor is found in the allegation that Miles is the enemy of the can teen the friend of the southern democracy and an opponent of Kcosavelt The prediction is made that as the nominee of the prohibition party General Miles would poll two million votes That in the eyes of the partys leaders is sufficient warrant for his nomination irrespective of all questions o principle But even were he certain of no more than 1099099 he would still be the man of all men for this particular honor Tho party needs a candidate General Miles peeds a partyand there you areAtlanta Constitution a CROP REPORT Commissoner Hubert Vreeland has issued the following crop report for Kentucky Owing to drought of last fall and the late seeding of the wheat crop it was in bad condition to stand th long cold winter consequently the report comps from all parts of the State that the wheat crop has suffered very materially and nothing but an early spring end favorable summer can insure even a fair crop of that cereal Grass er and clover have also suffered and the present condition will not exceed 50 or per cpnt of an av erageThere is a good prospect for the planting of a full corn and pota toe crop Live stock has general ly stood tho winter well although feed is scarce in many localities There it more cholera among hogs in the western part of the State Cattle hogs and horses are abet an average in number throughout the State There is a considerable falling off in the number of mules in many counties The prospect for apples and peaches is fairly good The low prices of dark or export tobaccos have greatly discouraged the farmers who grow those types The indications are that the acreage of dark tobacco will be very materially decreased Tho prices be ing paid for Burley are more satisfactory and the area on which this particular variety is grown will be considerably enlarged Tho farmer like tho ground hog has been housed in all winter Consequently little farm work ha been done Scarcely a furrow has been run for the spring crops We are encouraged to hope that with
