colored preacher of the name of Rev R D Stinson felt the spirit moving him mightily and he thus d scoursed There are 35000 negro men and women in Chicago who ought to be started down South at once Fifteen years ago I could get plenty money for the education of Southern negroestrut when the green unsub Ignorant herd of brutes from the South came yelping up to Chicago where they have free bars free street cars free hotels where they can go where they please and talk as they please things nearly were turned upside down The Southern negrors are pTheyed The best negroes stay in the South but Instead of telling these goer people the truth you in Chicago urge them to come where they can vote Well Eder whose fault Is It But apart from that question what a lot of truth there is in his statement that the people In Chicago a sample of all northern Republicanism urge them to come where they can vote acd the Chicago Chronicle commenting the forceful truths says that while no white critic would have felt It right to use such language now that Mr Stinson has used it there can be no harm in saying thathis opinions are undoubtedly correct They are In deed as correct dS it is possible to be and as sincere and correct as Is hi sorrow over the fact that the milking of the North for the education of the gjoutThe North did it all and while Judge rjDemocraticallyof the negro

the Interests or tlio city of Columbia and the people of Adai and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia rostorcc as second class mail matter WED JUNE 81904 The greatest question before the people of this section of the I State is the building of the Columbia and Lebanon railroad and well may it be for Adair county with all of herdesirable features good soil good water healthy climate and great timber resourc es has not been an inviting field for outsiders neither has it had sufficient attractions to keep many of its own noble sons with in its borders This section po sessing great natural wealth has plodded along in the old paths while other counties and towns of farr less resources have out stripped it in material progress as well as the conveniences of life Columbia and Adair county more than 100 years old have pa tiently waited and hoped for bet ter days trusting for the benifi cent hand of others to remove the conditions that imprison development and yet we are hereunder the same disadvantages that lmndicaped the generations of all the past while other sec tions are keeping pace with the spirit of the age Ve are the same distance from railroads as twenty years ago The same of roads to travel and tolls to pay The great developments of the last half century have not had anything in common with our good but rather enticed many of our shrewdest and most enter prising young manhood to aban don the old home and make thei fortunes and homes in other lands The fond hopes that oth ers would fight our battles and change our conditions are fast being consigned to the casket and selfreliance and determination to change environments are man ifest Our people are awaking to the fact that development is not the result of hope of accident or charity but the fruit of effort They know that the railroad is one of the most potent powers in changing commercial conditions in eliminating distance and de veloping the resources of any country They realize the disad vantage ofoldtime methods and are determined to cast them t the winds Standing face to fac with a proposition that will revitalize the busines of this section impart value to property treat business opportunities for out young men and bring convenient and comforts to all they have fully determined to master the situation The people of this county are called on to subscribe and pay for 5000000 of thepre ferredstock A like amount is expected of Marion county while only 1500000 is required of the Taylor county people This will bring it within the limits of th demands or if not entirely sa isfactory within the reach of th Company to secure the rest an let the entire road to contract The people of Lebanon have as sured us that they will come with their part and the same assurance has been received from the inter ested part of Taylor county The proposition is up to Adair and its failure or success will depend on what is done in this county This is an opportunity of a life time and besides the good to come to the public is one of the best in vestments within the reach of those who have idle capital Your money deposited in bank is dead to the world and worth noth ing to you so why not invest it in an enterprise that is safe and will bring you a good interest This proposition will bear the closest investigation Again there is trouble in Ohio over negro workmen and the Governor of that State has ordered out four companies of maliti- to protect life and property an Hanging Rock the seat of trou ble has been placed under mar tial law Northern papers and people have found much pleasure in exagerating statements made concerning racial troubles in the Southand yet in all the trouble- in the Sunny land nowhere has anyone or any section attempted to prevent them from making a living or acquiring property through honest efforts It is the worthless and criminal part of the race that brings trouble in the South and not those who are making theirs living by hones t toil The very opposite is true of many Northern localities Articles of incorporation of the Commonwealth Life Insurance Company have been filed at Frankfort The capital is 200 00000 and J D Powers

House i rf Interests an Intorwban Railroad Be Itween Lebanon and Columbia which is to Aid n Developing this Section o f Kentucky and Bring About Closer Relationsr MANY SPEECHESA FINE FEELING The railroad meeting which had been previously announced drew a large crowd to the courthouse last Tuesday night On account of high waters many of the Adair county people were prevented from attending but a sufficient number were present and a lively inter est was manifested Ten or twelve prominent business men Lebanon and Marion county and Mr G W Peterson of Mannsville Taylorcounty were here all of whom made enthusiastic speeches showing that they were deeply interested in the building of the proposed road On motion of Mr C S Harries Judge W W Jones was elected Chairman and in assuming the position made a few timely remarks instating the object of the gathering At the conclusion of Judge Jones talk on motion of Mr W A Coffey MessrsJ E Murrell and W D Jones were elected Secretaries A program had been made out and subjects assigned each speaker and the first one to be called was Gov J R Hindman who delivered the welcome address to the strangers within our gates He spoke about fifteenminutes telling our past differences in efforts to secure a road and wound up by express ing the hope that the project would be carved to Ii successful finish He was followed by President W K Azbill who gave in a forcible manner a complete history of every thing that had been accomplished up to the pros eat showing conclusively that the people along the line were ripe for the en terprise and that there was not a doubt about the building of the road if the preferredtletters from financiers who were willing to take up the matter and bond the road just as soon as the people of Adair Taylor and Marion were ready with their bonafide subscribed stock He had expended two thousand dollars and more than a years time to make the enter prise a success and his interest was continually growing With few excep lions all the rights of of way had been secured in the three counties and every other necessary step taken but the rais ing of the necessary funds Mr John Rubel was the next speak er Our Mutual Interest being his subject He showed conclusively by his argument that not only Columbia and Lebanon woukdbe benefitted but the uptmonstrated by citing facts that they had proven paying investments He stated that no apathy should exist here that we had one of the best towns in the State a community second to none point0can not afford to let this road slip if they do they will lose the opportunity of their lives Mr C S Harris of this place lowed Mr Rubel He felt a deep inter est in the building of the road and lieved that the required amount to cure it could be raised if our citizens would all pull together He cited many reasons why the enterprise should be made a success and was willing to do all in his power to bring about such a result Judge y P Thompson was the next on the floor and took up How the Road will Pay His speech was full of sense showing conclusively that it would be a paying investment Business men said he do not jump at con elusion they weigh matters and to show you that cool calculators of Leba non are willing to put their money into this road I have only to tell you that seven Marion county men who are here tonight willing to lend their aid are worth four hundred and twenty thous and dollars The road will benefit you much more than it will Lebanon but we are willing to help you makingin a eat that he was deeply interested and willing to do all in his power to further the project and trusted that our people would take holdwith a vim Mr B F Conway G W Peterson and Mr Edmonds were called for but they were not speakers but willing workers Mr R M Watham President of the Farmers Bank at Lebanon spoke at length He urged our people to go to moneyHethat it would be a payingenterprise and urged every man with surplus means to invest in stock Mr Wathamspokeen thusiastically convincing all his hearers that he was thoroughly in earnest The meeting closed with a spe ch from Judge W W Jones showing in his opinion how the money could raised e The meeting evidently did much good as many who doubted now believe On Wednesday morning another meet was held In the courthouse to arrive at a better and fuller understanding Va rious questions were asked and answer ed and every part and point of the sponsibility outlined which resulted the open declaration that the people o Lebanon and Marion county had never failed on any proposition that they firm believers in this enterprise an would come up with their part of the stock if Adair county people would do likewise In other words the responsi bility was placed on us where it rightfully belongs At this juncture Eld Z T Williams asked an expression Iron our citizens as to the amount each one was willing to invest Calls were mad by Judge W W Jones Chairman an every man excepting one responded favorably the amount reaching ten or fifteen thousand dollars That was the straw that indicates the wind the evi of faith and and a di ect answer to the representatives of Marion county that Adair county will measure up to her responsibilities The Lebanon people left feeling that our people mean business and left the surance that they were in the same state of mind The agreement and derstanding is to place 50000 of th preferred stock in this section and i this is done tlte building of the road will follow The meeting Saturday afternoon was presided over by Judge W W Jones while C S Harris and W D Jones were selected to record the proceedings Prof Azbill made a speech on the of safeguarding the interests o local investors He pointed to the efforts of the Directors and Incorporators as proof of his faith in assuring an honest and wise administration of the Companies busines The chair read and ex plained the subscription blanks and urged united action on the part of our people He stated that we could raise the amount necessary and that it must be done Gov J R Hindman was called and he made one of the best an most appropriate speeches in all of his life He hit every body but directed the bulk of his speech to a select few but in such humo- as to make every man feel the Governor meant it as a compliment and not as a criticism Eld Z T Williams started the subscription and when the meeting was over nearly 20000 wort of the stock had been placed which was fully up to the expectation of the most sanguine Mr R F Paull made a speech i which he stated that he believe- it a good safe investment an that he would take from 1000 to 3000 of the stock A com mittee to further pub the work was appointed as follows J R Hindman G W Robertson C S Harris R F Paull Z T Williams N M Tuft T R Stints J T Page James Gar nett Jr John N Conover J O Russell Rollin Hurt The meet ing adjourned with every body complimenting our townsman Mr Hindman for his untiring efforts

to interrogate me concerning the road I have subscribed for 100000 of its stock and regret that I cannot take more It will be a hard pull to get up the amount demanded from this coos ty but I believe there are many farmers who will readily take 500 of the stock The building of this road means much to our farmers It will reduce the price of what we purchase and creaSe the value of all we rproduce

building of the railroad and I think every man that has an interest in the prosperity and welfare of Adair endsuccessful business men have already taken stock in the road and that ought to encourage

is a way to get our products to markets offpathy with the enterprise dont think the people of Adair will ever have an opportunity to make a better investment than to put up 50000 to secure the road

it would bring to this town and country I hope We can build it and I will do my part as Iam able to do J N Coffey Merchant I have been for the road all the time but not for the proposition on an indefinite base All I have asked is to know that we will get the road and get it where it will best servo the interest and convenience of our people before we part from our money For this position some have classed me as an obstructionist andI against its building This question was brought to light by Judge in our meet ings last week and the committee that bsubscriptiolanks n the interest of

Dunbar Dentist I am for the iteThere is no question but what it be a great blessing to our town an county I believe it will pay all stockholders and I now believe we will succeed in securing the snout from this county James Garnett Jr Connty Attorney I am heartily in accord with this proposition the building of this road means that every piece of property in Adai county will be enhanced in value an

for t railroad Mr Nell will take some stock Braxton Massie Liveryman I have feared that this proposition would sult as many others and have not had much faith in its success until I met with the Lebanon people two weeks a in the city hall of Lebanon It clear to my mind then that they we re in earnest and the road could and would be built if the people of this county would buy the required amount ofstock bn lieve we will be equal to the requirement 1 have already subscribed for ten shares Beck Strange Groceryrnen yare for the road and believe it will We will render suchaid as we are

and will take as much stock as I am at all able to take Russell Murrell Merchants Of course we are for the Electric roadand have taken some stock As to the ques lion of it being a dividend paying stuck e think that fact will depend largely upon its business management Traction stocks and bonds are regarJeJ by a large class of inverters as chico se secure tiesas a class they pay well The shipping on thisroad would certainly yield an immense income but aside from the question of the roads income this town and county would reap an beingbuiltowner that would not be benefited It

15000 more before we can count it a go I believe ia good safe investment but I can only take so much of the stock There are men in this town who can put this proposition be yong the reach of doubt by acting liber erally Ir we can secure 15000 more from Columbia I willnot have any fear as to the remainder being readily placed withoutside merchants and farmers who are anxious for the building of the road and who have some money to in ve propositionR Electric railways both street and interurban and under judicious management they are great money makers This road will not only do the ordinary interurban work but will do a freight business equal to many profitable steam knee In view of the great resources to iced from and the further fact that it can be operated 5 per cent cheaper than a steam line I think it one of the best investments ever offered our people will take stock in the road There are many in this section who cannot take as muchstock in this road as they would like due to other investments but every man ought to buy all he can han dle I would like to see twothirds of the entire amount placed in the hands ofour people It will not do for us to allow this enterprise to fail and I am inclined to fear that we will Mr Z M Staples of the Columbia Mill Co I have had occasion to look into and study the Electric Railroad question I certainly believe in it with takenfJames T Page Farmer states that he has made out a list of fifty names about this end of the line who could easily subscribe and pay for 1000 each also a list of fifty who could easily take 500 each and as

senators views la advocating the nomination of senator when his attention was called to this denied it in the most vlg orous terms saying I am against Hearst in every possible way My explanation of Mr Thompsons In ter vie w supporting Hearst is to put it plainly that he has gone crazy My attitude toward Mr Hearst is unchanged I am surprised and grieved that Mr Thompson has seen tit to support Mr Hearsts candl dacy and 1 hope no more uf my friends will follow his example Senator Blackburn probably knows Mr Hearst better than any other Ken tucklan He has known him since he was a boy in knee pants wtea his fa ther was a United States Senator He admired and respected the elder Hearst but docs not hesitate to de clare that there Is nothing whatever in the sou to commend him seriously to the Democratic party fur any public office uf responsibility much less the presidency He considers Hearts ores eat candidacy the moit astounding piece uf audacity Kentuckians to whom Mr Hearts personal identity is unknown even a mystery can well afford to accept their senior senators estimate uf him he knowing him so well Be not de ceived by all this chat about Hearst He cannot possibly be nominated

have not in auy degree mod tiled on financial questions in 1896 and 190011 declared Captain Ellis I agreed with Mr Bryan on those questions then and time has not served to modify my views It Is not the politi cal opponents but the political and personal friends of Mr Bryan in Ken tucky of whom I am one who favor the nomination of Judge Parker Judge Parker isui d ubtedly a great lawyer his career on the court uf ap peals hens j in New York has di mn strated this Judging from the actlun uf the Dmucratic party of his stac be is unquestionably the only man whom the Democrats of New York re gard as an available candidate His extensive training as a lawytr and x perlence as a judge eminently tit him for tLe duties which devolve upon the chief executive He is a oyal Demo crat fur while he may not have agreed to some of the policies set forth in the Democratic pie forms of 1896 arid 1900 he supported Mr Bryan in both of those campaigns Being a regular Democrat a judge and a man of high personal character I do not know where the Democratic party would go this year to find a more available man It looks to me like he wound be noml noted at St Louis on the first ballot If he Is the

way the giant did tremendously advertise the show You see we couldnt have him crawl aboard a boat by the gangway between decks and curl himself up there somewhere below we had to car ry him where he could be seen by all He would step up from the wharf to the steamboats upper deck and stay right there straight through the trip in full view from the rivers banks on either side a man as tall as the steam boats chimneys And seen walking or standing there as the boat came along or sitting there maybe in a great arm chair that we never failed to carry along for him be made a sight that everybody along the river came out to see and looked at it with wonder And when we had come to where we were to land where they could see the great giant close pt hand why the people there looked at him in awe All of which as you can easily see made business great for the show in fact we never hit a town any harder then when we hit it sotJ Myrtle Lee was arrested by a Federal officer at Lexington charged
