my home where I had lived for Afteer a circuitous routeI reached mydestina tion I imagined myself a stranger n a strange land butt that awful feeling vanished as rapidly as though aided by me powerful and unknown sours through the hearty welcome I received from the citizens here This little Athens of Kentucky is ilt upon a knoll with many old handsome colonial style homes and fine farms in the surrounding country The streets tine lined on both sides with fine ade trees and the hand of progress seems to have Columbia in its grasp The many newly erected houses are modern in every detail buildings arc constantly being erected each owner trying to surpass his neighbor in architecture and conveniences Columbia is the best inland town in the State It has always been noted as an educational center and I do no know where to direct anyone considering the number of its inhabitants and insolation from near railroads toan other place where you will find a more congenial class of gaggle a more sub stantialeourthouse two handspmer tter r colleges t ownstThe CourtHouse which cost 33000 and the Jail 9000 were not paid for by the issuing of bonds but by a direct tax ordered levied by the County Judge which enabled the people to pay for hardlcy certainlry was the better plan to erect these fin e buiJdlngs The Marcum and Hancock Hotels are upttGdate both as to equippmentand service Their Bills of Fare will certain ly satisfy the most fastidious LindseyWildson a ing This college can accommodate about 200 pupils while the older one the Presbyterian finds ample room for 150 or more The business houses are built on a uare with CourtHouse in center and are composed mostly of large substantial commodious brick buildings AU the merchants are wideawake businessmen and carry

Infinitely more beautiful as the hills were lighted by the glaze from flame pitting batteries which had bee o scarcely visible In the daylight Each ot the thousands ot shells became a pyrltechotc

or Washington county isa date for Circuit Judge in the district comprising the counties or Green Tarlor Marion and Wash Ington subject to the action of the Democratic party The editor of The Columbia Spectator tries to impress his readers that we are afraid to des cuss national issues but nation al issues was not the proposition introduced by him He pointed out what appeared to him our inconsistency and asked us whether or not we were in earnest when we opposed the gold stand ard and trusts He stated that we should support the Populist nominees to be consistent He received our reply and now seeks to divert attention from the real issue but we stand to the original and insist that hI should pull the mote from his own eye before at tempting to take the beam from ours When the Spectator shall have settled when its wabblein and wabbleout course is past when its conscientious editor dis covers its political saint right eously nominated in the Hunter Edwards embroglio when he takes a stand for that nomina tion because it is not taintedwith fraud then and not till then should he seek to call attention to our inconsistency nor question our loyalty to our principles and nominees but the magnanimity of some individuals is almost boundless and to do good to others is irresistable We unhes itatingly accept the a d v ice andcriticism as a token ofes teem for our future good but we can not pass it all without think ing of that long time you were for Hunter or Edwards off and on as it were The contest was under full headway the blood or partisans was warming and the spirit of rivalry was well up between the adherents of both aspirants before you your paper took a position but it took took for Hunter without any equivoca tions whatever At that time Mr Hunter was well in the lead in this county but later some thing happened we know not what and the tide turned and we noticed a plea for harmony in your columns anda statement that you would support either The announcement that Edwards hadreceived 1146 majority was said to come from official returns but the committee that made the count found a majority of 191 for Hunter and issued him the certifi cate of nomination At that crit ical hour The Spectator fired on fraudand it appeared to shoot at Hunter and the committee but apologizingorder ta1able signs for hinter As the fight progressed that paper J ljis shown positions alike encour aging and discouraging to both sides It has denounced fraud plead for a free vote and fair count and openly asserted that it would not support any fraudulent nomination It was bold as a li on as gentle and innocent as a lamb If you truly desire right eous methods if you are not look ing through your political tele scope to discern the future to discover the winner and if you consider fraud in your own party as hurtful as in the opposite in short if you reallydesire to purge your party from corrupt men and measures then why swing in and out and talk about calf prosperity You enlisted in the fight for Hunter Undoubtedly you were not a stranger to the charges made against him both by Demo crats and Republicans He has never been regarded as a politi cal saint by either party and knowing him as you did and pre senting him not only as your per sonal choice but a better man thannis opponent and a deserving aspirant and able Congress man then what has he done to cause you to forsake him If Hunters political record was good enough for you before the primary why is it not now If Edwards was not the proper man for your support and you did what you could in a righteous way to defeat him then what has he done to gain your favor When a man is in deep water when the fire of the enemy is on does not OCC1r to us a proper time for a brave to withdraw An expla nation will probably teach us what consistency is and would doubtless be of worth to many of your readers The Republicans of this district who truly desire clean politics and whose purpose is to serve their district rather than their party now have a chance to test their courage and prove their sin cerity by aiding in the election of the Democratic nominee Hon Geo E Stone His nomination is not tainted with fraud He is not the tool of any clique and has never stooped to low and grovel ing political methods No man who knows him doubts his fit ness in every particular Able honest and courageous he would make a Congressman that would reflect credit on the State as well as the district If elected he will have no enemies to punish and no potlickers to reward but will be free and unhampered to work for the interest of the entire distrIct Gentlemen if you are tired of disgraceful methods and doubtful representation in our national Congress then wake up to your opportunity Mr Stones dem ocracy will not hurt you HA can neither make nor break the gov ernment but he can with ease cope with the greatest minds of that body and say to the people of the nation that the Eleventh

Fairbanks never makes a speech without referring to a cemetery and adds that he is thinking about the final outcome or his Vice PresideRtialaspirations The Odell forces secured control of the New York

terrible trag e IWhenwas and killed by J J Elliott at Poplar Hill people could hardly believe their own ears He was born and raised in this immediate daherean inquest and we started at once to the scene of the tragedy but when we arrived his body had been removed to his home whereat least 100 people were assembled It was the saddest scene I ever witnessed His wife and chil dren weeping over his dead body was more than I wish to witness again Mr Hatter was a very industrious man and had by his industry accumulated con siderable property He was enjoying a prosperous business in lumber staves andmerchandising and was quite a useful man in his community He was killed in the woods some mile or more from his home There were no wit nesses to the killing but Elliott con fessed to the killing They were in trouble about a haulI road but it was not considered by any means serious They had been friends and had had considerable dealings with each other Mr Hatter had been to Elliotts that morning and had talked the road trouble over with him and had set his men tocmake a new road to avoid going over Mr Elliotts land and had gone back to his buggy when Elliott came with his gun and shot him Wesleytkillingrse has been under guard ever since Next Tuesday September 20 is set for a preliminary hearing of the case when is said that some sensational features ill be uncovered I put no confidence in these sensa tional reports and will not believe that anythingI have had but little acquaintance with Elliott though he is said be a clever man and we refrain from giving an opinion in the case until a legal inves tigation is held Mr U D Hurt who had the misfor tune to get his collar bone broken by making a misstep and falling down a stairway at his late fathers old resi townhed by

part of it which is at once really pert 1u1nt and important is con tained in the first sentence The rest is mainly a tirade an unwarranted imputation of iusincor ities inconsistencies and
