victory see to favor the other side Mr Babcock stated in Ne York the other day that he di not fear Roosevelts election but the loss of power in the Low- ehouse of Congress It would b awful to have president and no house Mr Stone may not be elected but if the Republicans who ar crying against fraud are in earn est for a reformation they can forna competent honest Democrat It is rather singular that Republican organs are not boosting Old Man Prosperity and plead aloneIin the last year although Teddy occupies the chair There is a shrinkage in business strikes allover the country and conditions not what they once were Casey County News The Den ocratic Convention at Somerset last week nominated Hon Ge- E o Stone as its candidate for Co gress in the 11th District Th action is avery pleasant surprise Ito his many ardent admirers i this county where he haS live many years There are Perhaps few people of any class or party but what will be glad to see Mr Stone honored by this or any oth hEtmayaspireKhowing tent to fill any position of tru that his friends may ask him 6 accept We are not prepared to say what Mr Stones chances are for election as the Republi can party is overwhelming in the majoritY is it the purpose of this paper to denounce its former political position and jump in the Democratic bandwagon but the plaintruthsays that Mr Stone is in every sense a gentleman bighearteg true and kind and many vO ters through the kindness that has bn shown them by M Stone in bygone days will earn estly support him regardless his political convictions It is said that Alexander Dov ie the prophet has requested h is followers to pray fOrtlie lectionI of Roosevelt J l r nThe Columbia S ectatorjn last weeka issue took theposi candidatforthe trusts and for the

further suggests that to be con sistent The News should support the populist nominees and re marks Hows that Bro Harris Since so much interest is manifested and so much curiosity aroused as to our position we plank hr down as follows The News has never espouSed cause in haste and repented at leisure It has never enlisted in a fight for its choice and for the sake of h arm on y relinquished its claims before the war was over It has advocated measures from standpoint of honesty and pub lie good as we were able to see them and never attempted to float in the middle of a stream to gather daises from the soil of both banks It has stood for honest convictions gone through one of the most disastrous splits in its party ever experienced in this or any State and while many accused it being vrong yet ev ery man woman and child knew exactly where it was and for what it contended It has never lambasted others for fidelity to party principles or party nominees and has stood far and square uncovered in every troub le in which it unfortunately had apart It has not been ranting in every issue about the sins and misgivings of the opposite party and endorsing worse crimes tom mitted in its own It has stood by our party nominees in some instances where political meth ods secured nominations in an unrighteous way but in such ca sas it was the result of heated conventional methods and not the cool deliberate casting of ballots beolieved that political parties could become as pure as a Sunday unmpleasant duty to take part tiv stood our ground till the war wa wronwg ocda or n position

people refreshed by the meeting of their many friends and seeing the spirited contests that drive away the worries of a long dull season we sug gest that some steps be taken to prove our town and better our county As heretofore mentioned in the News Columbia ought to have water works No intelligent person will dispute the real worth of such an enterprise to the town in general and to every person in it who prefers convenience to inconven ience Every business man knows that the property of this town has nojiro tection from fire save the highest rate of insurance that every year much money is paid for others to take the risk which neither enriches the owners or affords much consolation We all know that with plenty of water under goodprcssure the very best sanitary conditions could be secured and enjoyed this within its self should be so earnestly desired as to justify our citizens in putting up the money to in stall the plant With water works we would better the health of the people increase the comforts of life and reduce a heavy tax that goes to outside corporations If the Council will investigate the cost and ascertain the receipts we believe that a wonderful impulse will be given to this proposition A bonded indebtedness for such a great necessity would not be a burden but would a blessing both to residents and nonresi dent property owners The receipt would soon pay the interest and provide a sinking fund We do not know the sentiment of the people on this proposi tion but if the Council will take it up this can soon be determined Gentle beeen chosen to
