which was published in the CourierJournal April 18 Dug fennel the common weed which grows alongside the road all over Kentucky is the latest remedy for con sumption and R J Tilford City BUilding Inspector says ic will unquestionably cure that dread disease or in tact any disease of the lungs The fennel is soaked in whisky and the liquor is then taken internally The treatment if continued for sever al weeks will result in a certain cure Mr Tiiford says The remedy is not a new one and It did nut originate with me but it is nut generally known that it has cura tlve or medicinal powers he said Tbe 1 chans knew that dog fennel had pursers ss a medicine and they used it tor a number of diseases The Grit ue ever h ard of It was before lUe war when my family kept a large quantity of whisky into which the strength of the fennel had been absorbed and it was given to the negroes when they were sick wi Ui any affection of the lungs 1 have teen cases of con sutnpiuu completely cured after the patient had reached an advanced state of the disease and I know that it is a powerful and ctllcient medicine The manner in which it is prepared is very simple A number of the heads of the fennel are put in whisky and left to soak for about two weeks The whisky will absorb all the juice from the weed in that time and it will then be ready for use The mixture is about the bitterest thing you ever tasted but the effect is worth the effort it takes to swallow it A dose is a table spoonful three times a day I had a sister who had consumption about twenty years ago and she tried this remedy She did not leave Louisville and recovered entirely and it living to day One or two other persons in my family also hay consumption and were cured by the use of this remedy Mr Tilford cannot explain the result of the use of the weed and knows oath ing about the scientific basis for the curative power it has but he says he wants the general public to know of it so tbat all can profit from the knowledge with the hope tbat it may reduce the terribly large death rate which exists in this country from tu berculosis THE WAR The loss of a battleship and 800 lives is a startling incident of even a war which has promised to bj gigantic tbat between Russia and Japan This direful triumph of the Japanese has led to reports tbat Port Arthur would surely fall and that the Russians would lose their position on the sea Though ioformatku front the scat of coniitct bas been far from reliable the public is ripe now tlr belief that the Japanese Thentsudden and sensational pu ilicatlons to the effect tbat powerful pressure will be immediately brougbt on RusMa fur otcountry will be quick to accept terms Such stories are generally the feverish re sults of imagination Russia has stak ed to much to

their attention to the common enemy of democracy is to be deprecated no matter In which direction they tend The only certain result of such a poli cy Is tumake for strlf which will in jure tbe chances of the party in the coming election This is true v bother it is applied to to those who are endeavoring to deprecate the candidacy of Judge Parker by making it appear that he stands for only one set of democratic politi class or to those who seem bent upon attacking other men who aspire to the presidential nomination- As we see it there is absolutely no sense in this sort of criticism Its natural result is toward misrepresenta tion and the opening up of the old sores It is easy enough to deride be little criticise and misrepresent but this sort of thing dues not make for democratic harmony and wlthouthar mony tbat is real there can be no hope for democratic success yeAllest government have acmmon enemy in the republican party Differences of opinion as to tbe availability of as pi rants for nomination at the bands of the democratic party are natural but thereJs no excuse for their expression in terms that only make for party strife These should be reserved for the real enemy The republican administration and the republican party present a sum ciently vulnerable target for demo erotic attacks and all of them should be aimed in tbat direction Atlanta Constitution REPUBLICAN EXTll GA NC E- Washinaton April Representa the Rice Pierce of Tennessee the second ranking minority member o tbe House Committee on appropriations says the aggregate regular ap propriations of the first session of the Fiftyeighth Congress now about to close will be in the neighborhood o 8700000000 The total amount carried by tb bills as reported to the Douse sad Mr Pit rco to day was 359780232420 To this should be added the sum u 884 971820 for permanent appropri ations and interest on tbe public debt not including the sinking fund Thf makes tbe total 8081774144 26 Tu Senate additions to the House bill which have already ben made and frwillbring this amount to 700000000 an may exceed this sum This enormous total continued Mr Pierce represents the best forts the Republicans of Congres- could put forward to keep the expenses of tbe Government down to the mini mum Early in the session the Repu licans announced tbat economy wa to be the watchword sucb bills as

aggregated 8757317923 wbi the estimated revenues of theGower ment were 8704472061 It will th seen tbat tbe majority party is seeding to spend every cent in t Tresury and will soon be burrnwin There is hardly a doubt that the ne Fessi n with its Rivers und Harbo and Public Buildings and Gruen bills not to mention tbe reported ii tendon of the Republicans to pass Ship Subsidy Bill will bring the Ant

State will meet in Louisville June 8th for the purpose of selecting rep resentatives to the St Louis con vention and to name electors for the State at large At that meet ing the party organization will be determined for the ensuing four years So far as we have been able to keep trace of our party organization we are not inclined to believe that it needs a severe shakeup It is true some trouble has been experienced in the past by the determined obstinacy of Chairman Allie W Young that he has been at variance not only with the members of his commit tees but with the earnest appeal of leading Democrats and the Democratic press of the State Just now Mr Youngs ire seems to be in about normal condition and he warns his party that he must have his way unrestricted or there will be trouble We do not pride in criticism we have no desire to unjustly censure Mr Young but we verily believe that he should not be so dictatorial but obey the mandates of the Democratic party for whom he is supposed to be its true agent As to his career in the organization we are satisfied that his days are numbered and his career nearly ended As to the various mem bers of the committee in the main they have been faithful to duty and loyal to party and since we are confronted with a great political battle we deem it of im portance to retain every commit teeman who has had schooling in this line of work and faithful to- his party So far as this district is concerned we see no reason why any charge should be made and have no knowledge that such will be attempted if the gentle men Mr Garnett of the State Central and Mr Dishman of the Executive Committees will ac cept the responsibilities for four more years They have both been true to party wise and courage ous in the discharge of their du- I ties and we hope that their acts xnd abilities will be rewarded by a unanimous reelection What Democrat in all the land could desire better prospects of winning than now confronts our party Every state in the union is alive to the importance of a change and while the solid States will doubtless remain solid yet it is the shifting centers that turn the tide and bring victory For tunately the

to their party until the con vention has selected a candidate and then kick out of the harness if the candidate selected does not suit them in every particular No one man is the Democratic party a party founded upon principles not men and the principles gov erning tne Democratic party years ago are the same today We believe in party organization and feel sure that if perfect har mony prevails at St Louis the ticket selected will be elected The country is tired of Roosevelt ism In a remarkably boisterous con vention at Des Moines Ia the Hearst forces ran roughshod over the minority and adoptedresolu tions instructing for Hearst and the Kansas City platform and adopting the unit rule The Hearst speakers w ere hissed when they appeared and some of them were driven from the stage but they had captured a majority of the district conventions in the preliminary meetings and they organized the convention and seated all the contesting Hearst delegations An informal conference be tween President Roosevelt and a number of Republican leaders was held at the executive office in Washington to discuss plans for the coming national cam paign No decision it is un derstoodwas reached as to the head of the Campaign Commit tee The subcommittee of the National Republican Committee also met in Washington and selected the minor officers for the Chicago convention Col W G Welch who was a prominent lawyer of Stanford and an exConfederate died last week He was born at Crab Or chard in 1841 Col Welch was a forcible speaker Some years ago when the late Mike Owsley was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor his name was placed before the State Convention by Col Welch in a very strong speech The Atlanta Constitution one of the leading papers of the South is a strong advocate of Judge Parkers nomination for the Presidency T hat paper states that the Southern States will vote solidly for the New York jurist and that there is not a doubt of his nomination The Constitution also believes that Judge Parker will be elected Curtis Jett has been carried to Frankfort to serve a life sentence for murdering James B Marcum He was also given the death pen alty for murdering James Cock rell If the Court Appeals sus tains the judgment of the court in this case then in order to car ry out the judgment Gov Beck ham will have to pardon Jett for the killing of Marcum and hang him for murdering Cockrell It is said that if Mr Roosevelt is elected President Young E Al lison will succeed C M Barnett as Surveyor of Port Louisville John W Lewis will succeed J A Craft as
