VicePresident HENRY G DAVIS West Virginia The work of the St Louis Con vention is over and Judge Alton B Parker of New York and Henry G Davis of West Virginia are the Democratic can didates for President and Vice President of the United States The nomination of Judge was made on the first ballo- though eight other names were presented to the convention Thi nomination was made about 0 clock last Saturday morning aft er an all nights session Th scene was dramatic and at times it seemed that the roof of the building would be lifted Judge Parker was evidently the candi date of the people He gave ou no expressions before the conven tion Save that he was a Demo crat and that he had always been identified with the best interests of the party When told of hi nomination he said he wouldre serve what he had to say until he was officially notified He is a learned Judge now on the su preme bench of the Court of New York He is identified with no- factiol but stands for the pea pIe and the whole of the Democratic party He was elected to the supreme bench by 60000 majority and his managers dais that he will carry the State o New York over Roosevelt an that he will be elected As New York goes so goes New Jersey and with these two States and thei solid South West Virginia an Colorado there can be no question about his election The speech of Martin tV Littleton in placing the name of Judge Parker before the convention was a master piece of oratory and long before the speaker concluded i was evident that his candidate would be nominated The plat form upon which this nomination was made is sound in every par titular and is endorsed by the Democrats throughout the United States There is no financial plank in the platform the posi tion of Judge Parker upon the money question being left to him to be stated in his letter of ac ceptance On account of devel opment the silver question was eliminatedseveral years ago an of course there will be no for his saying that he is for fre- silver or that he is against fre silver When a question is dea it can not be any deader and o course he will talk about live is sues the issues at this time that are engaging the minds of the American people Judge Park prs running mate Senator Da vis is an able and influential statesman and is properly loca ted to make a strong candidate Mr Bryan is satisfied Mr Hill is satisfied the hatchet has been buried by all factions a reunited Democracy The Democrats the f nation can not help from feel ing encouraged and to us it looks like victory is insight Back here in the country where we can not actually see the great interest that has already mani fested in the campaign now on it looks like the Democratic par ty is up against it and that we will have four more years of Rooseveltism But read the met ropolitan papers of the country and you will conclude that Dem ocrats were nevermore determined The party is once more uni ted and the campaign is entered with a determination to win While Roosevelt was unanimously nominated at Chicago there is not a doubt but many of the rank and file are againt him and will not support his electors at the November elect ion Further more Roosevelt is an ambitious man dangerous to the republic and had he the fixing would de clare himself the King of this country today Many prominent Republicans are afraid of him and so declare themselves A con servative Democratic ticket has been nominated upon a platform that stands for the best interest of the country Vote for it The investigation of the killing Mr R Lee Suter is still going on in Louisville Mr R W Bing ham the County Attorney of Jef ferson is doing every thing in his power to learn the true cause and who fired the fatalshot Dream Palace and all other kindred resorts adjacent to the city of Louisville should be broken up and we trust that County At torney Bingham willcontinue his good work until the thieves gambles and soiled doves are driv en from the city The Kentucky

BtMcCreary dential nominee John W Colyer PresidentialGon WeGavleJudge J P Hobson of Eliza betlitown a member of the Court retnow over the district for the first time since his election and is meeting with encouragement along th verysweek leaving yesterday afternoon for Edmonton It is our understanding that Governor Beckham announced t his friends several months ago that he would not be a candidate for the United States Senate to succeed Mr Blackburn Some times a man changes his notion- f and if Senator Blackburn pontin duesto antagonize Mr Beckham he is certain to hear something drop The death of Judge Chas Pat teson of Campbellsville makes it necessary for his successor to be elected at the November else tion Gov Beckham will appoint some gentleman to act as Judge until that time There will prob- t ably be four candidates from Ma rion county and one from Wash ington The directors of the Louisville Nashville R R Company meet in New York this week first Vice President will be to elect and the semiannual divi dend will be determined There is not a better managed system in the United States than the Louis vine Nashville thenCharlesesays Judgedevenfa President The Kentucky delegation re elected Mr Urey Woodson of Owensboro a member of the National Committee He was op posed by Mr Willam B Hal derman of the CourierJournal Thos E Watson of Georgia and Thos H Tibbles of Nebras ka have been nominated for President and VicePresident by the Populist party JUDGE PARKERS DISPATCH Esopus N Y July 91904 Hon W F Sheehan Hotel Jef ferson St Louis Mo I regard the gold standard as firmly and irrevocably established and shall act accordingly if the action of the convention today shall be ratified by the people As the the platform is silent on the sub ject my view should be made known to the convention and if it is proved to be unsatisfactory to the majority I requestyou to decline the nomination for me at once so that another may be nominated before adjournment ALTON B PARKER To which the convention re plied There is nothing in the views expressed by you in the tel egram received which would pre clude a man entertaining them from accepting a nomination on said platform The Cincinnati Enquirer and other metropolitan papers say the dispatchwill make Parker thous and upon thousands of votes The Republicans are sore ova Mr Bryans action They ex pected that he would go to the St Louis convention fight for the Kansas City platforn and failing to get it he would kick out of the harness join the Populist and do his utmost to defeat the Demo cratic ticket Their hopes fell when the announcement came from Mr Bryan I am for the ticket I will support any plat form I help to make Many of us did not get exactly what we wanted but we are all satisfied It is announced that the Re publican campaign is to be open ed late A good many people will be perfectly satisfied if it is not opened at all The fact is that very few persons are taking any interest in the Republican side this year and the ones who do show some anxiety as to results of the unfortunate who have been given places on the Repub lican tickets It is claimed that Teddy has ordered Chairman Cortelyon to throwaway the Republican plat form and substitute therefore one Theodore Roosevelt TOPPA Mrs Effie Willis is visiting her niece Mrs J W Walker at Gradyville The school at Zion is progressing ProfeA 0

with auotb er Experimental feeding hats been carried on to such an extent with hogs that it is pretty well demonstrated that a bushel of roru will make ten pounds of pork If bogs uro on pasture thin th grain from a bushel of corn will be much more Thus the hog will pay well for the pasture and mak good money of the corn Corn can hardly get too high to be fed without profit Another valuable thing that must give the hog credit for is that be is ready for the market al most any time and for that rea son we can take advantage of a highmarket whereas we could not in feeding cattle and sheep Quicker money can be made from hogs than from any other farm animals A small invest ment can soon be increased Cu money is not tied up for a year or so at a time and thus we save interest In feeding cattle the hog oten comes in for the only piofit Considering every thing we aro compelled to say that the hog in the surest profit producer for many reasons He will live and grow fat on waste products f tho farm that other stock wont eat He is ready for 1h market at most ai y time He will bring the top price of fat He is thn quickest money maker of all The first investment is small and the care necessary is less than that for other stock HH multiplies rapidly andwe need only give him plenty of feed dry qua r tens pure water and he will do the rest There is no question but hogs properly handled will yielda largH profit on the investment and on the food consumed The markets during the last few weeks have been somewhat bearish although there is nothing that should dig courage the man who is in the business to stay The extent to which cholera breaking out in various parts the corn belt leads us to warn our readers of the impending danger Keep your hog healthy by fee d ing as much variety as possible see that they are free from lice and if they are not thriving to snit you do not hesitates in trying a good worm remedy The sys tem of a healthy hog is often able to overcome
