Postomce as second class mail matter WED JUNE 151904 The Democratic State Conven tion held in Louisville last week was one of the most harmonious gatherings ever witnessed in the metropolis of this Commonwealth notwithstanding a spirited strug gle was predicted The attend ance was large and every dele gate conducted himself with such decorum as would meet the ap probation of a Sundayschool or that ifould measure up to the de mands of a gathering of the most intelligent citizens of any State The convention was called to or der Chairman AlEc V Young whoattempted to briefly defend his record but devoted himself mainly to a denunciation of the CourierJournal and Times Gov J C W Beckham was elected temporary chairman over Judge Frank Peake the vote standing 817 to 322 This indicated that the opposition to the Governor was not so strong as had been claimed by the leaders in opposi tion to the administration The convention selected Gov J C W Beckham Senators Blackburn and McCreary and Congressman Ollie James a s delegates at large a compliment to these genI- tlemen well deserving and asafe guard to the Democracy of the State The representative of Kentucky go uninstructed under the unit rule but antiHearst In reorganiz ing the committees that so much affect the welfare of the party some good and wholesome changes were made the most import ant being the Chairman of the State Central and Executive Committees Mr Allie W Young has hell this position since 1899 but its honors and responsibilities now rest on Mr Lewis llcQuown of Bowling Green a Democrat of the truest makeup and a lawyer of ability whose record for fair ness so well fits him for the weighty duties of party work Mr James Garnett Jr of Co lumbia was reelected a member of the State Central Committee for this district an honor well and justly placed and manifests the confidence reposed in him as a Democrat able and willing to meet the requirements of this re sponsible position The Eleventh district besides selecting Jas Garnett Jr as a member of the State Central Committee made elections as follows Delegates to the national convention Hon John W Collier of Pulaskiand Dr A Gatliff of Whitley Alter nates Wm Sampson of Harlan and J J Grissom of Monroe Elector R C Ford of Bell Mr Gordon Montgomery of this place was chosen as a member of the Committee on credentials and Mr Lafe Sharp of Liberty was selected to act with the commit tee on rules Capt J F Horn was elected a member of the State Executive Committee and the following gentlemen were chosen as State electors Claud Thomas of Bourbon L H Car tel AssistantstHarty Sommers of Hardin M J Howard of Kenton The Indiana State Sentinel has the following The movement to make Judge Parker the Dem ocratic Presidential nom i nee startedwith the Democratic massesnot with the politicians t His boom has grown in strength t arid vigor because the masses of Democratic voters want him This demand is irrepressible Nearly all the leading poliiticians opposed him until they heard from the people The voice of the masses is so strong for him that politicians are flocking to his standard Only a few of the big ones now standout The latest to fall into line is exPresi r dents Cleveland A few weeks 1 ago he was for Judge Gray or Richard Olney He now sees the masses are for Parker and he Ie gets op the bandwagon Gor man and Bryan should also now fall into line The Parker nomi nation is a certainty The editor of the Casey Coun ty News our friend and neigh bor criticised one of our editorials of week before last and corn mented on its grammatical and typographical defects We have no inclination to offer an excuse but will state that the errors to which he referred were corrected in the same i s sue on the first page We have made mis takes all along and will likely make more We are interested in advancing this part of the State and have no time nor space to use on any thing smaller or weaker than the News Just now the Columbia and Lebanon Inter urban railroad is paramount O O Stealey the Courier Journals Washington correspondent writes as follows concerning the Presidential contest The situation at this time is decidedly mixed in fact all up in the air Cleveland is in the bush Parker on the bench and Hearst moan ing over his setback in Colorado and Utah for to Hearst the loss of these two States which he had so lovingly nursed was the un kindest cut of all He did not mind what they did to him in Ohio and Indiana but to enter as it were into the bosom of his own family and snatch from his own fireside two of his cherished children was an act that bows down his head with the weight of its own woet It is now evident that no can didate will have a cinch on the Democratic nomination for the Presidency when the National Convention meets at St Louis the 6thof July Of the 728 del egates so far chosen 374 are un instructed In instructed votes Judge Parker of New York leads with 178 This is far from being sufficient to nominate and as above stated there is no tell ing what will be the outcome Parker is evidently the choice of the Kentuclydelegation sele ted at Louisville and in our judg ment he will receive the twenty six votes of this State It was the opinion of nearly ev ery speaker who addressed the S tat e Democratic Convention that Mr Bryan would not bolt the action of the St Louis convention it matters not who received the nomination and that the gentle man chosen as the Presidential candidate w o u I d be elected Judge Parker was decidedly the favorite but every utterance went to show that the Democrats of Kentucky would be satisfied with any candidate put out by the St Louis convention Lieut Governor Bill Thorne in speaking to the State Convention said If the Democrats of Ken tucky want Parker I am for Parker if they want Gorman I am for Gorman if they want Ol ney I am for Olney Why I wouldvote for Cleveland if he was nominated What about Hearst cried a voice in the as sembly There has been too muchmoney already spent upon him said the speaker In the Louisville Democratic State Convention the Adair coun ty delegation got every thing they went after and was on the winning side upon every propo sition that came before the con vention The platform adopted by the Democratic State Convention is published elsewhere in this pa per It is not lengthy but con tains principles that every right thinking man shouldendorse Read it Ninetyseven of the 131 bills adopted by the last General As sembly became laws in effect last Monday Many of these measures carry

meeting manifesting an enthusiasm and deter png was called to order by Prof Azbill at 0a m who invoked Divine blessings upon the assembly in a short and appropriate prayer in the largo and commodi ous building erected for th annual camp meeting of the Methodist people of the Louisville Conference Prof Az tgup forth the great possibilities of tqe en rprise and the immense good to be de ved by the country affected by its building Gov J R IJindman was troduced to the audience at the conclu sionof Mr Azbills speech and for more than an hour he entertained in hi usual happy mood and appealed to th people not to allow this opportunity to pass but to do their whole duty in de veloping their country and advancing the common good His speech was full of logic and overflowed with humor After Mr Hindman closed his speech a lendid dinner was served and an hour pleasantly spent in social inter course In the afternoon Mr Offitt a business man of Lebanon made the leading address in which he presents many reasons which the road should be built and urged the people to take ad vantage of the present opportunity o developing their country and to CeS was requested to speak of the interest manifested in Adair county and in a short statement he assured mdidour would meet the demands but urged that the closing of the proposition should be pressed in aU sections Mr G W Peterson Dianne vllle in a short and business moons spoke for the people of Robinson creek He stated that he had every reason to believe that they would subscribe for the 15000 of stock that six parties Thegmeeting adjourned with every body feeling that the road will be built The farming element of Adair count should bear in mind that an interurban railroad to this place would them more than any other class of people It is a matter of impossibility to get more acres of ground in Adai county and it is an admitted fact tha the road will greatly enhance our popu lotion throughout the county People will want land to cultivate and the stronger the demand the higher the price of soil There is not a farm in Adair county but will be more than doubly enhanced in value Now when you take into consideration the market that a railroad will afford can any farmer say that he would not be greatly benefited The opportunity to increase wealth will be much greats for the farmer than the individual merchant who lives in Columbia or other towns in the county It will be an easy matter to establish more stores and die vide the trade but the number of acre- of land remain the same and as above stated an increased population enhances farms Every farmer who is able should take stock in the enterprise People of Adair it is time for us all to pull together as one man and secure the building of the railroad You are not asked to give but to invest and there is every evidence to believe that this investment will bring you a good interest You can figure the change to come to this section of the State The increased value of farms of timber and all kinds of products ought to arouse everybody If you think the road wi be built without your aid you may fin to your sorrow that indifference to such propositions is the costliest investment manm oIsmeats by such methods This is the op chancekto as r salt in a wonderful development of our profitabda your moos This proposition must be closed beterety trce PREIERR1sD STOCK The question has beeh asked repeatedly by parties unfamiliar with the way in which corporations acquire capital what is preferred stock In case of large undertakings wherein there is considerable risk and much capital is required itis but fair thatthe persons who take the initial risk should have the first and best chance torealize on their investments It is usual therefore and the laws of the save states make it legitimate to issue such investors special shares of stock which are to be paid before what is earea dividend erThis is the kind of stock our citizens are offered by the Railroad Compan and for the reasons indicated The ConnecticutMutual Life Insurance Company has made a very desirable change in its policies Hereto fore a holder could surrender his

so much trust In God that the have no faith in them selves hope is hard to sail long as doubt is kept from the dunrof the heart Ona swallow does not make a sum mer but enough or them will make a man a

indignant at the treatment ceived at the hands of tobacco buyers and If their statement or the case Is correct it would seem that their com paint Is nut without just cause Ac cording to the statement of the growers it appears that the buyers have agreed among themselves to give each buyer a certain territory and that no other buyer is to enter that terrItory without the consent of the buyer to which that territory Is allotted The etrect ot this Is that the farmers are forced to sell to tree buyer for the dis trlctln whch they live at any price fered or not at all It Is said that this

general determination among Kentucky Demo crats to have a thorough revision or the party rules This sentiment Is so strong that when the state conven tion meets it is doubtful if any con siderable amount of delegates will pose it The main desire appears to be to strict the puwers or the chairman and members of the central and executive committees to restore to the peple the election or local committees and strip the executive head of the organt- z1t1on or the arbitrary power to re wofe and appoint committeemen This cry for home rule goes up from the second class cities as well as the rural districts Lexington especially surelyobeOwensboro and other third class cIties will be a unit fort When this Is done and It surely will be done the machine will have its wings so cupped that there wont be any machine no matter who under takes to manipulate it Wltn this point settled there wilt be little else to light over in the mat ter ot the party organization The mere Identity of the
