late Judges have but performed a clearly incumbent duty in giving to Mr Powers the opportunity for further defense The grounds on which a new trial is ordered are three but with only one of them does the State have need of concern The Appellate Court holds that the jury was not so chosen as to elim inate every element of partisan or political bias and its decision should make certain that the jury impaneled for the fourth trial is open to no such charge It should not be said of Kentucky and Ken tuckians that any man can be condemned to death because he is a Republican or set free because he is a Democrat The crime with which Powers is charged has a legal no less than a political significance and it is with the former no matter what may be the opinion of its citizens I 4 4 in regard to the latter that the State is solely interested There is not the slightest truth in the charge that Kentucky Courts at any time have been unwilling to give any man a fair trial nor to permit partisanship in their rul ings by any man or set of men It is high time that the murder of her Governor was avenged If Powers had part or lot in it and The Times from the evidence be lieves that he had no

outgrowing any other ajaIunderstand the starting the turning point the place and time when atten tion was directed to Columbia through out Southern Kentucky are not slow to state that the mainspring of action was touched when The Louisville Conference held in this town three years ago sub milted a propositionS to establish a schoolof high grade within our corpor wereythe wisdom of meet ing the proposition of the Conference and in fact withheld their support But there were enough energetic determin ed men in this community to push it through to a successful termination notIfrom those who espoused the cause and undertook to raise the necessary amount asked by the Conference Since the schoolewas a gloomy day in the outlook of this town Last January the school building an one dormitory

ESSAY- Read Before SundaySchool at Glen ville Dec 4th Friends and Brethren I regret that I am unable to aid in your Sundayschool at this place for I consider the advantages to be derived from Sundayschool sufficient to cause all good citiI zens to take an interest and aid by their presence if in no other way In fact the relation of the Sundayschool to the community is little less than the Sunday school to the church While the church may have a higher and more riobler purpose its engage ments may be restricted by the differences existing among the different denominations but the b0nefits to be derived from the Sundayschool are alike to all Where all the people of a com munity meet in Sunda school if actuated by proper motives the high and low rich and poor good and bad are for the time being socially equal It is here that church members lay down their prejudice and the moralist his selfishness and all engage in the study of humanity and the advancement of morals and ultimately in the advancement of Christianity None but those who watch closely the march of civilization can calculate the ad vantages of a good Sundayschool in the community for it is by be ing in regular association with each other that we become ac quainted learn to appreciate each other and how to promote each others happiness It is al most impossible to have a Sun dayschool conducted to exactly suit all our particular views and it is well we can not If we could we would do nothing to conquer self neither wouldwe learn humanity Too few per sons know where to find the dividing line between morality and Christianity and many nev er rise to that state of moral perfection required by the laws of the country to make good citizens let alone Christians The Sab bath breaker the profane swear er the liar and drunkard are not good citizens according to the laws of humanity to say nothing of the laws of God and our duty to obey them Every person is under obligations to do unto his neighbor as he would have his neIghbor do unto him that is do right Every individual is under obligations morally speaking to do all he can to promote the hap piness of his fellow creatures and I know of no better way than to meet in Sundayschool once a week ascertain each oth ers wants encourage the children and interest them in their moral duties and where we can have opportunity as occasion re quires of putting good instructions into effect I learn from reading the Scrip tures that the kingdom of heaven is within us if we claim it or possess it at all and that we shouldall be of the same mind and also that the words of the Lord are spirit and truth Hence I conclude that the kingdom of heaven is formed in our minds that the mind forms its own heaven in time and to all eternity by words dictated by the Holy spirit in form of commands to do or not to do certain things For in stance we are commanded not to kill and again we are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves and if we obey the If commands in the proper spirit the Lord is with us if we do not He is not with u Hence it seems to me that God is only with those in a special manner who know his will and do it So r suggest that there ought to be a list of the principal com mands pertaining both to our moral and Christian duties print e4 ODa card and every pupil in Sundayschool and every member H f1 h of church required to memorize them so as to be able to repeat them at any time In this way we can always have the word ofJ the Lord with us either condemning or approving our ac tions iI fear that there are persons have so little regard for the command to judge not that they form their idea of heaven and predicate their hope of eternal life on their judgment of the wrongs committed by their neigh bors and especially the methods by which their neighbors are ad mitted into other churches than the one to which they belong In this way I believe persons may unconsciously form in their minds by a kind of prejudice a hell from which they are never relieved except it be by cultivating a liberal spirit and acquiring a disposition which will enable them to be kind and gentle ten patientjtoward their neighbors and I know of no place better suited for the formation and cultivation of such a disposition than the Sundayschool T No Honor Among Thieves Two negro women Fannie Tay lor and Mary Philips lived in the same house in this city but occupied different rooms with the door between locked and fasten ted says the Bowling Green Times Journal It looks now as if this arrangement may land them both in the penitentiary Several weeks ago the Philips woman was arrested on the charge of breaking into theTaylor womans room and stealing a waist She was tried and held over to the grand jury Now the Philips wo ran has been arrested on a warrant sworn out by the Taylor woman charging her with breaking into her room during her absence and stealing some plates combs and other articles of smallvalue It is likely that she too will be held over to the grand jury Both are chared with housebreaking In discussing the recent elec tion Rev Sam Jones pays this worthy tribute to Hon W J Bryan If he is wise and judi cious he can and I believe he will lead a victorious party four years hence After such a victory as the Republicans have had they are going to windup in four years with a Belshazzars feast and Bryan will be the Daniel who will read the handwriting on the wall Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting When the Democrats claimed to come back to safety andsanity and adopted pretty much all the principles and polices of the Republican party platform they pull ed off from Bryan and Bryanism yet Bryan threw himself in the breach and not only spoke with sincerity and honesty but he spoke to more people everywhere than when he was running for the Presidency himself There is a magic in his name He has something to say to the common people and the common people hear him not only gladly but by silIman in jhe future MISSION or THE MODERN NEWS PAPER S 1 COFJoE At the preset day one of the greatest dissimnators of current information is the newspaper The press of the United States is filling a mission that perhaps no other agency could fill The newspaper of thee present is the outgrowth of free government free speechand free thought A free press cannever survive long in a despotic government because it nourishes a spiritHof freedom i that is antagonistic to despotism Should one of our great American Weeklies or Dailies be removed to Russia or Turkey and criticise the rulers and governments of those countries as se verely as our American press criticises our President and Con gress that papers would most probably be suppressed in a very freeIdommany centuries by the strict censorship kept over the press possibly if there was freedom of thought and a free press in Russia today it would lead eventual ly to the freedom of the poor downtrodden serfs of that country Who knows but the noble little patriotic Japanese nation is not only fighting their own bat ties for justice but that they are also fighting for the liberties of the poor class of people in Russia as well If the Japanese finally gain the victory it will be one more triumph of justice and lib erty But happily for our country a spirit of liberty of freedom breathes from its Declaration of Independence its Constitution and its laws and as a result there is material and moral development and a free and happy pea pIe The question may be asked what part has the newspaper performed in bringing about these happy results Since the colonial days when Governor Berkeley of Virginia wrote I thank God there are no free schools nor printing presses in America for learning hath brought disobedience the news paper has had a great work to perform It is true learning had brought disobedience to the semi despotic rule of Great Britain and it was but natural that she wanted printing suppressed because if it is desired to keep a people in bodily intellectualas moral slavery always keep them in dense ignorance 1How shall speak of thin or thy tower Thou god of our idolatry the pressIDy thee religion libery anl laws Exert their infuea aul advance their rouse But a given right always implies a corresponding duty While there has never been but one great attempt in the United States since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence to suppress free speech and that was the passage by Congress the sedition laws and which the promptly resisted as being danI gerous to their liberties we examine some of the immoral filthy and pusillanimous sheets largecitIIies the conclusion that according to pubIhcatlonbe suppressed at once What effect do

gathered to the Exposition grounds to view for the last time the beauti ful palaces and cascades It was most like a great funeral service to which the world had to pay their last tribute As stood for the last time and babe l its glory I was almost crushed- with the thought of what a change would so suddenly pre vail For six years the accom plashing of this great fete has lain upon the hearts of the honorable and praiseworthy men who compose the Worlds Fair management and many have been their sacrifices of time of labor mental and physical and of mon ey uncreditable Honor to them They have

publisher For more than a year we have been convinced thatI such a change should be that the readers of the paper should be better served Its present size is equivalent to more than one and a half of the old and if it does not contain an in creased amount of local news and prove of more worth to the commercial and industrial interests of Southern Kentucky then it will fall below our expectations andj desires We have made the change at considerable expense and with full knowledge of our increased annual expenditure of several hundred dollars but in view of these facts we believe that the time has come when this section should have a paper in keeping with the spirit of advancement and that the people will give the support necessary to tide it over every riffle Whether or not it will prove profitable is to be tested for no lroposition of increased patronage has been tenderedit is in reality a jump in the dark but regardless of consequences we have taken the risk To be plain this change has been made more from a spirI it of pride for our town and this part of the State than from any allurements of personal gain and if it fails in whole or in part to advance the general good of the sunny side of this part of the State or proves a bad business venture then we shall have only the consolation of knowing that we made an effort in keeping withour judgment but too mod ern for our section of the State We expect an increase in our subscription list and a more liber al patronage from the business interests of Columbia in particu Jar It is our intention to meritIan increase of

Bridegroom railed to Put inAn Appearance Miss Katherine Engel a Hoboken girl waited four hours for a frightened bridegroom to appear to be married to her and then turned her wedding recep tion into a euchre party with the wedding gifts as prizes She said she guessed the man was suffering from stage fright He is Samuel Hartel of Hoboken Sams father said the young man dressed for the wedding and left his home saying he would soon be married but he appeared to be exceedingly nervous The eld er Hartel heard Somuel remark to a friend that he was afraid he would not be able to support aI wife and that he might back out There were 200 guests at the Engel home awaiting the coming of the bridegroom while messengers searched for him and card playing was started to pass the time The minister sat watching the players who found the game a bit dull with nothing to play for but points Miss En gel suggested progressive euchre and offere to put up some of the wedding gifts as prizes One young man won the fine silk umbrella he had brought as his offeringWe pretty good time con sidering the discouraging circum stances which would depress al most any party said one of the guests We all sympathize with the girl and we did the best we could to cheer her up She soon got over some unhappiness playing for prizesI We didnt play for any of the valuable gifts leaving those for Miss Engel I think that

is often the case that a man is so ruputed simply because he fails to conform in all his views or to pretend to with those around him He was a survivor pastIits were of that generation He prided himself upon his strict honor in business and social integrity He judged all other men alone by the same standard He left a considera ble estate consisting largely of lands In all his business transactions with men he looked and trusted alone to their honesty Poverty stood not in the way of his trusting a man and on the other hand if he believed was a lack of honesty no amoun of financial standing would in duce him to trust him He was kindand indulgent to those had claims upon him socially o whonas worthy He was held in the highest esteem by his neighbors an d acquaintances He owned at

1865 Mr Davis resided on a farm in Spencer county Ky with his Davislandtheir visits in Spencer On nuI merous occasions the members of the company would ride up to the Davis home and order supper prepared for thirty or forty men When the meal was ready Quant rell and his companions would quietly take their places around the table and when the leader rapped three times with his knife on the table the men would begin to eat They always stood while eating and spoke never a word during the meal Quantrell and his companions were always po lite at the table and in the Davis home After finishing the meal QuantI rell would thank the host after the manner of a Chesterfield for his hospitality and would add If the Yankees inquire if we have been here tell them we have andshow them which direction we took in departing Have no fears for us We can take care of ourselves And in a moment Quantrell Frank and Jesse James and Sue Monday Onearm Berry Dick Mitchell Capt Ma rion Tom Henry

Greenwood Ohio resulted in a riot and five men and two women were seriously injured The indirect cause of the rio was an edict issued by Mayor Carson to the 200 negroes of the town to get married and settle down or leave town within twelve hours Wednesday night two pa trolmen raided a house known as theIthose caught in the dragnet brought forth the Mayors edict The rush for marriage licens was policeIof the town had Jo be called out to preserve order Men fought with each other to get on the clerks desk and in the scramble two prospective brides were trampled under foot Four of inIsensibilityother was shot through the hand by some one in the crowd Up to noon more than a hundred licenses had been issued and preachers ill thee village and Cincinnati were kept busy tying nuptial knots A few more were issued during the afternoon and it is thought that nearly ev ery negro in the town will be a married man tomorrow A rigid inspecttion will be made by May or Carsons lieutenants tomor row and every colored resident who is unable to display a bride and a marriage certificate will be run out of town The above occurrence took place north of the famous Mason and Dixons line Had it occurr ed south of that line what a howl would have gone up for the poor South has had the negro to contend with for a century and its patience sometimes gave out and the negro was handled pretty roughly at times In fact the Southern negro has been flog ged until his hide was all welts He has been lynched and even southIerners ty had reached the point beyond which it was inhuman to go Never is there an instance in which a Southern negro no mat ter how heinous his crime has been made to walk up and become the victim of matrimony And then to think that a whole town full of them were so cruelly treat ed at one time And what good can come of it1 To make one another do neIgrof Nero have finally been outclass ed Hodgensville Herald 1r RICHEST MAN LIVING The Czar or Russia is Given that tinction It was reported from St Petersburg the other day on semiof ficial authority that the Czar had given 109090000 from his pri warIindividual donor toany cause The Czar is the richest man on earth Even Mr Rockefellers many millions would look small comparisonHis are almost in credible It is estimated that the magnificent state ball which was given just as the war with Japan broke out cost over 1000 000 The Czars gift to the orthodox church in the course of the year averages over 2500000 9n the other hand the church turns over large revenues to him estimated to exceed the amount which it receives With the exception of the Shah of Persia the Czar owns a great er fortune in diamonds and pre cious stones than any man in th Czar is the luckiest man o earth in the matter of wind arte of money by will which are no always accepted- Delicate diplomacy is required to induce the Czar to accept a legacy As a rule a wealthy Russian who desires to leave money to him communicates with some official of the imperial house hold before he makes his will and obtains the gracious consent of his Majesty to his design Even when this has been done and the man dies careful inves tigation is made before the mon ey is accepted with the object o finding out whether anybody who had a moral claim on the testa tor will suffer by his disposition of his wealth If so the Czar orders that the money be divert ed to the proper channels These legacies when accepted are never used by the Czar for his private gratification He re gards them as a trust fund and they have been so regarded by most of his ancesters This fund is drawn upon for charitable and religious purposes Five millions of rubles 500 009 were given from it to relieve the starving peasants during the last terrible famine in Bessaraba The Czar made liberal dona tions from it to the last Indian famine relief fund and in aid of the negro peasants of Martinique who suffered by the eruptions of Mont Pelee It is impossible to arrive at any exact estimate of the wealth of his imperial Majesty said a high diplomatist from whom- most of the facts set forth in this article were obtained but I should think that on the most conservative estimate he must be worth from all sources far more than 50000000 a year This is actual revenue and does not take into account the huge treasures in specie bullion and diamonds which are stored in the vaults of the Peterhof palace in the citadel of Kronstadt and elsewhere Although he is undoubtedly the richest man in the world his imperial Majesty is a man of the simplest tastes and his purely personal expenses would probably be easily covered by 50 a day Except when it is necessary to assume the outward show o his exalted rank he dresses in a suit that you could buy for 25 He dines very simply except at state dinners and many stock rsr f brokers smoke far more expensive cigars than he does Her imperial Majesty the Empress is equally simple in her tastes She has
