4 1904 EDITOR SOJIEHSET JOURNAL DEAR Sml have been requeste- by the old Soldiers of Pulaski county to define my views as to the penion policy of the Government as to them through tbe medium of the Journal In deference to tbls desire and for tb purpose of complying with this wlsb I will say that I was too young to be a soldier in thelate Civil War and know of the soldier not frim experience but from history which tells of his many heroic decd of his privations and sufferings fur his country and his convictions Every citizen of this country owes allegiance to the Govern ment Inn turn for Iho protection which the Government trrds and guarantees to him of ife liberty arid property and when hjs country by th proper constituted authority for tba purpose for cause to it justifying such a step declares war it Is the duty of the citizen to promptly answer the call to arms the motive that should actuate him in so high a duty should be and it a true soldier Is simply patriotism and love of country and without the slightest mercenary or selfish thought This must be true iu order to avoid debasing the loldler and his calling and entitle his action to that admiration and respect of all which his heroism bravery and cour age displayed in battle his self sacri fice privation hardships in camp and duty well performed always begets in his fellow countrymen War is to be deprecated and no one deprecates it more than he who would make and is the true Soldier Tbere Is no heritage ever left to a people that Is treasured more highly preser ed and regarded more sacredly and which begets loftier and higher ideals and instils in the youth of tbe land the principle of patriotism and love of country as deeds of chivalry bravery and valor done by her soldiery The true soldier asks nothing pf his coun try butlhe right to serve her loyally well He Is In the true sense the glv ereHe offered and mayles crificed life upon his countrys alter and at her call he gave to Its service the best of his vigorous manhood by exposure and hardships in the faithful perform ance of duty he lost health and Incurr ed disease he sacrificed the pleasures of home and the ties of wife and loved one Was he not in fact a giver There may be a debt without the asking there may be a debt owing with out a demand there is such thing as a debt of gratitude Equally as binding and as obligatory on the party owing it as a contract obligation if not wore so Such a debt if owing by an indi vidual it in his power and he is able to do so failed to answer It he would stand disgraced and discredited Tbe party owing a debt of this character cannot from Its very nature expect to be asked to pay Whoever beard of the payment of a debt of gratitude being demanded But does tbe failing to demand payment destroy tbe debt or make it less obligatory upon the debtor to pay No but makes It more binding and the debtor under the more obligation to be the more ac tive in tbe discharge of the debt I recognize the fact that tbe Govern meut of tbe United States owes to tbe old soldiers a debt of gratitude which It should by proper pension legislation by its Congress the same power teat declared war and which is empowered to make laws seek to discharge in a fair and liberal way It strikes me that the fairest way to meet this sacred obligation Is to pass a service pension bll When it considered that it ha beet about forty years since your ser vices were rendered and sacrifices made and to require you af this time to make proof of disability incurred in line of duty with your comrades scat teredand with a large number if not a mnj rity bivnuaced in that mystic land that separates the seen from the unseen and who are awaiting the bugle call to Judgment nd not to battle could or would be termed just or generous What age shoudbe ed In the act it strikes mecould be arrived at fairly to the soldiers upon an Investigation by a committee appointed for that purpose whose airs should be to treat the soldiers with generosity and liberality Now having given you my view up on this question at your request I must say Iliad some hesitancy In do ing so for the reason that I am a candidate and therefore subject myself to the criticism that what I have said was for the purpose of gettlug the sol thatdI have said in answer to your request should not and ought not to induce single soldier t3 vote forme Were any soldier to vote for me on ac expressedethe very basis upon which my views are founded besides you are now citzens you haveas high and Im port ant duty to perform to your coun try ns when you were soldiers and it is pasand as men who have the inter est of this country at heart I hold that it is your duty irrespective of the pension question tor as to that question each of the political parties expsess their willingness to treat the soldier fairly and liberally to examine beforetyou parties seeking the support of the people for office and support that party and candidate that you as lovers of your country and desiring its good believe would rebound to the greatest good of the country I am with great respect your friend and well wisher GEO E STONE CHALLENGE AND THE ANSWER The New York Democrats having directly stated in their platform that For the first time in its hlstory the Empire state has a governor wboe personal integrity rests under wide spread suspicions Governor Odell very promptly came to the front not being able to withstand the challenge and asked what if the charge was true had the Democratic attorney general of the state been doing during bis twoyear term of office It was au untortunate challenge though it is to b j admitted the circumstances com pelled it- Silent Governor Odell would have admitted the truth of the great charge Speaking be has brought Attorney General Cunneen to the front with an array of facts and figures showing of ficial if not personal corruption and he couples this showing with the statement that the initiative in cnmj nal prosecutions is not in the hands of the attorney general of New York but in the hands of the district attor neys One of the charges brought by the attorney general was with reference to grossly illegal fixing ot salaries by Governor Odell To tbat charge in stead of a denial or a citation of authority for his illegal acts Governor Odell says That is a matter which must con cern the controller because he would be liable for the payment of funds not authorized by statute I certainly thought that I acted within my au thorlty Are executive matters run ny the thoughts of the executive or by the laws of the state of which he is governor Did Governor Odell consult the attorney general nf the state as to his authority in tbe matter Un doubtedly he did not It he had he would have produced a copy of his letter of inquiry and a copy of the ans wer of Attorney General Cunneen not a doubt of that But he does not for the good reason that as he says in his lame defdnse he thought he acted within his authority and seeks to lay tbe blame on tbe controller a Republican official So much for that but another charge is even more graveIAttorney General Cnnneen directly charges that Governor O dell caused to be paid to the Faunceville Iron com pany the sum of 818618 for rock exca thereswas not one yard of rock excavation on the whole work The attorney gener al also products his written protrat against the payment the attorney get eral be Dga member of tbe canal board Does Govenor Odell dewy the main fact or qufbttou the fact of the pro test Not iu the least but he says that Attorney General Cunneen was the see dissenting member of tbe board and tbat with the other mem bers hethee governor thought that certain money was due for losses which bad occurred by reason of the failure of the state to permit the contractor to continue his work That is to say that because for good and sufficient reasons the state rafus ed to allow the contractor to continue his work Governor Odell thought he I ought to be paid 18618 for something LJ he had not done It is Republican logic and of the sort that will make New York Democratic for certain It would have been wise in Governor Odell to have pursued the policy of sllencefor there is graft in Republican circles at Albany as well as at Nash ingtonOwensboro Messenger To the citizens of Adair county The undersigned are in the tombstone busi

inst to Miss Rove Oates of Wayne county Rev T L Hulse officiating The bride is a neice of Mrs G A Smith of this place and is a young woman of many lovable traits of character The groom is a dentist by profession and is a young man of excellent standing Soon after the ceremony the happy couple left for Cincinnati where Mr Smith will spend the Winter in school The First National Bank of Colum bia was one year old last Saturday and as a yearling itis one of the strong est in Southern Kentucky Its President Mr J O Russell and Cashier MrE H Hughes are men who are cautious business men and have given entire satisfaction in their respective positions both to the stockholders and the people who transact business with that institution Up to date the posits and loans far exceed the average Bank of equal age in country towns and after paying all expenses a gopd interest is left for its owners In jus tice to all parties we feel safe in saying that the prosperity of the above men tioned institution has not molested the old Bank of Columbia that has been doing business for many years and has stood the pressUre of panics as well as enjoyed the great seasons of prosperity The Bank of Columbia and the First National Bank are here to aid in the onward move of our town and country and the very fact that the National has not hurt the business of the other Bank shows that new business has been se cured that the field of operation has been broadened This should be en couraging to our people This field is ample for both and the town and county justly proud of them If Columbia had a good system of water works it would have a rapid growth and enterprise and push would be manifested on every side Water works would do for the town in general more than any other enterprise yet se cured The very fact that a low rate of insurance would be established that the convenience otherwise to be derived from a good water supply under pres sure would induce many to cast lots with us educate their children and en gage in business It would in our judgment prove a profitable investment and we trust that some one who has idle capital will investigate With our schools telephone system pow nearing completion and the electric light plant a certainty together with the many other advantages of this sec tion Columbia would outgrow and out do any inlantown in the State Gen tlemen of the town this proposition is worth considering and so long asit is delayed so long until the growth of Columbia be retarded Our readers will remember that about six months ago Mr G W RUbarts of Pellyton bought of the heirs of the late W J Winfrey in the eastern portion of this county the white oak timber oft 900 acres of land for 1300 Soon after the purchase Mr Rubarts transferred his deed to Mr J C Coul ter of Middleburg Ky and hands were at once engaged to cut and tur the timber into staves Atthis writing there have been 170000 made and abou 30000 more will be secured making total 200000 A great many of these staves have been sold on the market and the estimate of the full amoun that will be received when all are sold is placed at 6400 Of course it cost a considerable sum to get these staves to market but after deducting all expenses there will bean immense profit Mr H H Dunbar of Jamestown W E Garnett of Columbia and Evan T Kepner of Keltner were made Roy al Arch Masons in
