after his Faasmost enthusiastic participants arc met whom I know were active and Intiuen tlal among the gold Democrats tour and eight years ago They are vlth the party now and believe In the prOb- ability of success I think that almost without excep tlon the socalled Bryan men will turnout and help the ticket to their utmost and vote for it on election day I told them that In my judgment when the Democratic National Cot ventton voted to send the reply to Parker It voted theguld plank to the platform just as unmistakably as it stated In words But I told the further It made no difference in this asc because the money question Is not at Issue In this campaign shall work for the ticket and talk for It and I think Mr Bryan whit e J active to the campaign In bebal- ot the ticket Our chances

expectation will be covered by Democratic hosannas Unfortunately every Republican in the Eleventh is tryin get in the above vehicle know not what they do Mr Parker will hold the reins of government and then the above cortege will watch the Democratic a Survey the entire situation and regulate the forces Boys make peace and keep out of the closed vehicle Fresh air and uncovered methods for Americans There are fewer Democratic Journals bolting our nominees publicationsany ticket named by the Democratic party since the civil war This may not disturb the average Republican in the Eleventh C Kentuckybutlation to the Republicans in the East All well informed Republicans know that there is a and ace the prospects favoring Democratic victory Judge Parker was formally notified at Rosemount last Ved nesday of his nomination for the Presidency by the Nationallc- vention The notification speech was made by Hon Champ Clark of Missouri Judge Parker responded in an address occupying closinghewould not be a candidate for the second term nor would he accept reelectionAbout present c IThe Democratic Presidential Mr Parker handed in his resignation as a Judge of the Court of Appeals of New York a few days ago which seemed to bring surprise even to his asso ciates on the bench Such an act is worthy the approbation of ev ery American citizen It is evi dence that he is not a politician from the sense ofa pie hunter but big enough for the highest office within the gift and trust of the American people It brings him out of the common rabble dthat seeks positions of profit and trust by holding to every thing within reach and striving for higher position It puts him in- line of greatness with Washing ton Jefferson Jackson and Lin coin and states to the Democrat is party and the entire American people that his election would stand for honor and honesty Mr Parker has served many years in the responsible position of Judge he has weighed the ev idence presented by litigants and rendered decisions that settled contentions between men gaining a reputation as one of the abiest jurist that the Empire State has ever had His work for which he is so eminently fitted has been one to establish justice to settle disputes and bring peace and good will If elected we have every reason to believe that there would be no change in his mission It is too elecItionare n better than the eratic and uncertain Roosevelt who dehgh is in war and whose efforts bring to a common end two distinct races that will never realsocial or even political It is a fact that no one fears in anyICupheaval in business No one supposes that he would search the seas for foreign possessions supremedflies or seek the channels of war until grave necessity demanded it No one can suspect him of engendering strife between the two races or between the two great divisions of our country On the other hand the people are not certain as to what Mr RooC3e velt may do They know that he has wiped out the peace and good reached its high e st ghis noble predecessor be tween the Northand South they know that he is devoted to one section only and willing to place the Southland under circumstances alike repulsive to the en tire caucasion race They know he would prefer war to pea that he would choose a bull fig rather than a prayermeeting Viewing the men and watching the tendencies there is every reason to expect a Democratic vic tory At the meeting of the S Central Committee held Frankfort last Saturday Jud James E Cantrill was lector the nominee in the 5th Appellate district by a vote of 5 to 4 Com mitteeman Jas Garnett Jr of the 11th District voted against the resolution The committee rulingky as of but one person claiming the nomi nation they declared him to be the nominee Judge Sauley and Judge Carroll both came before the committee and stated that they would give their hearty support to Judge Cantrill and the convention wiiI not be held Ori 25th onEmanuel Walker of color was in town all day during the primary When asked in the afternoon if he had voted he answered no I have only been offer eda dollar and no gentleman will l his votefor that sum Republican methods are as un satisfactory with their party as williall The Republican district Com mittee is canvassing the returns of the late primary at London to day Tuesday It is generally believed here that Mr Edwards will be awarded the certificate of nomination as the vote of each county as reported shows that he has a good and sufficient majority Qver Dr Hunter ExUnited States Senator Geo G Vest died at his home Sweet Springs Mo last Tuesday morn ing He was a native of Kentucky having been born at Frank fort December 30 1830 He was a graduate of Centre College and removed to Missouri in 1853 Senator McCreary feels sure that Parker will be elected He says that he is satisfied that he will carry New York New Jer set Connecticut Indiana Colorado Montana and Nevada West Virginia and the solid South are all right The district committee in the Eleventh Judicial district met a Lebanon last week for the purpose of agreeing upon a plan an fixing a date to nominate a candidate for Circuit Judge No agree ment was reached and the State Central Committee ordered primary There are only two candidates announced 1 H Thin man of Washington county and H P Cooper of Marion They are both sterling Democrats and the race will be interesting The paramount issue with Republicans down in this section is topurity in politics They are op posed to every form of fraud be lieving that fraud vitiates an lowers the average standing of party as truly as it does a plan The purchase of votes the advantage to be gained by methods that are dark of course can not be countenanced Did you notice the purity manifested last Tues keepinog tab on events since If not open your eyes and watch con sistency move along The Japanese are still pushing the Russians up the country which is to the liking of the great mass of American people but since it is known that Japan has 200000 men familiar with the country in which the armies are meeting and Russia only 13006 all in a strange land it is no won der that Japan i s victorious When Russia gets her armies con centrated in the territory of war there will be another tale to tell exhtsince the primary Well I dont care if Edwards is

pathways of life because they were not taught the value of good manners and a fine gracious courtesy in their youth The result is that they have grown up hard and course and repulsive in manner and have not been able to win fa nor attract trade nor business n other words their bad manners and r pulsive ways have kept them backand handicapped their reers It is astonishing how fine man uers and politeness develop into ease and attractiveness in mal hood and womanhood Other things being equal the employe who is the selected for advance ment is the one with good man oars a fine gracious demeanor a good presence these qualities are the best kind of capital even bet ter than money Agreeable deportment coupled with good education and ability willoften win where capital in the hands of the boorish the unattractive and illnatured will fail In fact agreeable deportment is thb one indispensable sought after everywhere There is nothing else which will so quickly open thea door to
