little group o undergraduates about the wisdom of while economy Is wise be said to be mean or niggardly is the height of foolishness The niggardly man is nearly always overreached It is Dr Cagun smiled It Is like he resumed the story of the miser and the mouthful of waterThis miser had a cask of wine in his cellar and every evening be would send down his man to fetch him up a pitcher To keep the man from drinking any of the wine he would make him fill his mouth with water before he left the room Then on his return the man would have to prove that the water still remained in his mouth and thus the miser would be convinced that none of the wine had teen stolenThis scheme seems ingenious and yet the servant with the greatest ease overreached his master lie kept a pitcher of water hidden in the cellar and emptying his mouth on his dent be would drink all the wine he desired and upon his return upstairs would still have a full mouth to show the unsuspecting master John Rhea is out of

For President ALTON B PARKER New York For VicePresident HENRY G DAVIS West Virginia ANNOUNCEIIENTS For Circuit Judge We are authorized to announce that lion II TIIURMAN of Washington county is a candi date for Circuit Judge in the district comprising the counties of Green Taylor Marion and ington subject to the action of the Democratic party A majority of the Chairmen eleven in number of the Eleventh Congressional district met at Middlesboro last week disobeyed an injunction issued by Circuit Judge Cook Faulkner and gave a certificate of nomination for Congress to Dr W Godfrey Hun ter The Edwards forces claim that the action of the eleven committeemen is nothing more nor less than robbery as the cer tifiedreturns sent in by all the county clerks in the district clar ly show that Edwards received a majority of 1146 votes Legal proceedings were to come before Judge Faulkner at Barbourville yesterday Tuesday at which time Edwards followers hoped to have the action of the majority of the committee annuled The situation is not at all satisfactory and at this writing there is no telling which of the two Ed wards or Hunter will get his name under the log cabin The committeemen who gave the cer tificate to Hunter say that he re ceived 191 majority on the face of the returns It is no fight of ours and we give the situation as we understand it The Re publican party in this district is strong enough to purge itself from corrupt methods if there is really and truly a desire but whether this is the case or not or whether the emoluments of office are regardless of methods the actuating motives we are un able to determine It seems to us that present political tenden cies are away from the golden rule Elsewhere in this issue ap pears an interview of Mr Yar berry and also a statement made to the Louisville Post from a Mid dlesboro man giving the other side and from them we infer that not all the sinners are on one side nor all the political saints on the other It seems to be a mixedaffair as well as an unfortunate one for the political party that has fought for Civil Liberty in the past and whose orators have orated over Democratic mistakes It is their sin their mistake and their responsibility Hon W J Bryan will speak for Parker and Davis during the campaign He will have five ap pointments in Indiana He pos sesses more magnetism today than any other public man The Republican party was very much in hopes that he would bolt the Democratic National Convention but when he announced that he would support and do all he could to elect the ticket its feathers fell Every man has his influ hal31receivedno s bYdong oddsI MR YARBERRY INTERJIEWED A News reporter interviewed Mr MR Yarberrycommittfe man from this county concerning the counting of the official returns of the vote of their pri mary and the issuing of the cer tificate of nomination to Dr Hunter in Middlesbro last Wed nesday Mr Yarberry states I was warned at Junction City while on my way to London that a Hunter man would be in dan ger in that town and was advised not to stop there In the face of these facts and conditions I ar rived there at 2 a m Tuesday Before I left my bed chamber in the Catching Hotel that morn ing I was notified that we had better act right that day or suf fer the consequences After breakfast while on the street I was notified that a rope awaited me if Edwards failed to get the certificate Other threats were also made and I was advised to get out of town on first opportu nity I caught a train in the di rection of Louisville went to Pittsburg where I passed under an assumed name I was there notified by wire by a personal friend not to be seen while pass ing through London I took his advice and locked myself in the colored peoples coach while go ing through that town In Bell county the County Chairman refused to certify un tilcomplete returns were in from all the precincts there being 3 or 4 unreported Edwards secured a mandamus and compelled him certify which gave Edwards majority of 330 This mandamus was disolved by the Court of Appeals and the complete returns showed Hunter a majority of 792 In Harlan county the ballots were stolen from a strong Hunter precinct supposed to have been don by a party who since committe- suicide The voters of that pre cinct registered each voter the old way which gave Hunter majority of 80 In this precinc- two of the officers were for Hun ter and two for Edwards and they certified to the returns in the regular way We counted this majority as it was cast In Letcher county Edwards claimed 120 majority while the official re turns gave Hunter 16 majority the Chairman of the county be ing present and certifying to its correctness There were various claims of fraud by both sides but no technical errors were con sidered We did not investigate any claims of fraud as our duty was simply ministerial merely to canvass the complete returns and issue a certificate of nomination to the party who hadreceived the most votes on the face of the official returns I submit the counties with their respective majorities and have no appology- to offer for the discharge of my

the order of the Laurel County Cir cuit Court Clerk restraining the count was that the Court of Ap peals have repeatedly held that the courts have no jurisdiction in such cases but a matter to be settled by the party authorities TilE OTHER SIDE Evening Post Special Service PINEVILLE KY Aug 2OThe committee has given a certificate to Dr Hunter and the act stands out as the most brazen the most barefaced the most outrageous steal known in the litical history of Kentucky Just what led to the steal will be ferI retted out and the methods by which an adverse majority ttf 1144 can be changed to a majority for Hunter of 191 will be shown to the world At Bennetts Fork where Belknap got 29 votes and Beckham 7 Hunter is given 605 majority In the Yellow Dill precinct one of the officers of election a Hunter man said after the polls clos ed I had an uphill fight Wccouldnt get the vote out but I got 22 of the 26 votes for Hunter The committee re ports 478 for Hunter and 4 for Edwards By what peculiar legerdomain this can be done an ankious public would like to this howl about fraud in Iiarlan county is a mere subterfuge to hide the doings at Bennetts Fork and Yellow hull It is reported that the ballot boxes for both of these precincts were fixed at the Winona Club rooms in Middlesboro Now the question is are the Republi cans of the Eleventh district going to submit We think not It is said Hunt er spent 25000 in the primary and I am satisfied it will cost him 25000 more before he reaches Congress Iam inclined to think some of these election fixers will board at the expense of the State in the near future J C J Everything is moving along nice ly in Democratic circles An agreement has been reached by the party leaders of New York relative to the conduct of the

VicePresidency last Thursday Hon John Sharp Williams of Mississippimade the announcement in a speech requiring an hour Mr Davis responded in a short and pointed talk The gathering was at White Sulphur Springs W V andseveral hundred enthusiastic Democrats were present Paul Reed and Will Cato two negro men were burned to death at a stake in Statesboro Ga last Wednesday They were charged with murdering a white family consisting of Mr and Mrs Hodges and their three children Reed confessed but Cato claimed that he was innocent Reed said just before the torch was applied that Henry Bell murdered the child ren and that he was the murderer of their parents It was a horrible crime but the law could have been vindicated without in flicting inhuman punishment The Japanese have made a de mand for the surrender of Pout Arthur and the latest bulletins from the scene of war say it has met with a refusal The docks at the besieged city have been set on fire by Japanese shells and several houses have been de stroyed by the flames Rains are interferring again with the Manchurian land campaign but the Japanese forces are said to be making another advance and driving back the Russian

Remember the date Come at once They will not last long W L WALKER Columbia Ky IT IS dL1RJt1a1G EDITOR NEWS The abuse of the ballot in elections is so appalling that many people feel con siderable distrust as to the perpeturity- of our glorious form of Government The fact that men are purchased at the polls as merchandise is just cause for patriotic citizens to tremble for the safety of their country It is an admit ted fact that the purchasable vote of our country is increasing to an alarm ing extent and unless something is done to check this evil it will result in a state of anarchy which may engulf all into the whirl pool of corruption The secret ballot was adopted with the thought that it would to some extent purify elections but that it has proven a lamentable failure most people will concede to be true Under the secret ballot men of fair reputations can and do sell their votes with perfect impurity and the secrecy shields them from the contempt of the public The question may be asked is there any moral agency that gives en couragement indirectly to this great evil Let the pastors of the different churches answer Is it not a fact that at the last gener al election for county officers of Adair county that all the candidates for office were required and did contribute to the campaign fund for the purpose of buy ing voters and also whisky to debauch the voters that they might be more easily controlled Some of those candidates were members of churches and claimed to be followers of the great and good John Wesley and other great lead Oh shame where is thy blush Have any of those men been expelled from the church If they are in full fellowship does not that fact give couragement to their course The buyer of votes is perhaps more culpable than the seller and by his endorsement- of the principle leads us to infer that in certain contingencies he would also sell Is it not time for all good men ir respective of party to put the seal of condemnation on these abusives of the ballot and by their united efforts check this abominable evil CITIZEN VAL JLB JoARJI FOR SALE On the 1tth day of September 1904 at 11 oclock a m we will offer for sale the farm known
