time are the heaviest burdens of life and the unhappiest of all mortals are those who have more of either than they know how to use There is much satisfaction and happi ness in all laborthat is honest and true Few things bring greater contentment few things give more peace of mind A bright joyous religion filled with the radiance of Gods love kills despair kindles hope begets ebedience and crej ates a deathless devotion in Christ Do todays duty fight todays temptations Do not weaken and dis tract yourself looking forward to things you cannot see and could not under stand if you saw Better to laugh than weep Dut if to sorrow Procrastinate thy tears today Theyll as well tomorrow Let the mind be directed upon the world of peoble and interests outside of self and there will be a healthier and more normal activity of all the function than if we constantly study our short comings either real or fancied Do everything wellmake that the rule of your life and live up to itand you will find it most conducive to your own happiness and to the happiness o those with whom you are brought into contact or communication- The test of friendship is its fidelity when every charm of fortune and en vironment has been swept away and the bare undraped character alone re mains If love still holds steadfast and the joy of companionship still sur vives in such an hour the fellowship becomes a beautiful prophesy of im mortalityA writer has well saidi There is a dignity in every attempt to provide for the future It indicates selfdenial and imparts strength to th character It produces a wellregulat ed mind It fosters temperance It based on forethought It makes ptu dence the dominating characteristic It gives virtue the mastery over self indulgence Above all it secures com fort drives awaycare and dispels vexa tions and anxieties which otherwise might prey with severity upon us Those who contradict everything and those who assent to everything opposite as they seem to each other are alike in their disloyalty to truth and simplicity One opposes from the love of opposing the other agrees from the love of agreeing neither is actuated by the pure and unsullied love of truth Yet this s the one element which is es sential to all good conversation No eloquence can compensate for its absence no gifts graces or sympathies can make it superflous AS TO PROSPECTIVE LEADERS The announcement comes from New York that the democratic politicians of that state have determiaed to take David B Hill at his word and accord ingly will regard him on the retired list after the first of the new year Down this way we have been strong ly of the opinionthatMr Hill and some others went into retirement on Novem ber 8 However as politicians of the New York stripe do not always know when they are dead it may be just as wellat this time to givehearty approv al of the announced plans of Mr Shee han to assume general leadership while to Judge Herrick is given the responsi bility for the upper part of the state These gentlemen are generally con sidered the best of the present list of democratic leaders Both so far as we know are men of character and stand ing and both within the limits of their possibilities have demonstrated them selves worthy the confidence of their party associates It is to be hoped however that the democratic leaders of the great state are not going to content themselves with mere recognition of this character at the hands of the party Throughout the country the opinion prevails that the highest duty of prominent demo crats in NewYork and in a great many other states is to find some followers upon whom the leaders can count at the right time- Leaders are in some degree necessary but the democratic need is voters The party might worry along without leaders but it can do nothing unless it has some votesAtlanta Constitution- I LESSON OF THE POPULAR VOTE A further investigation of the popu lar vote for the presidency confirms our original prediction that the figures would show that it was not Rooseveits great personal popularity that caused the socalled landslide but the refusal of many thousands of regular Democrats to take an interest in the candidacy of Judge Parker after his gold telegram to the St Louis convention the disappointing language of his speech of acceptance and his failure until th last days of the campaign to make a Iaggressive fight against the trusts an tariff protected interests The returns show a total Democratic vote of only 12850 000 1n1900 the two great parties pollled 13566065 showing a falling off of more than 700000 votesAccording to the PostDispatch s compilation in Illinois the Republican vote gained 35 000 while the Democrat ic fell 175000 In Kansas the Republi cans gained 25000 the Democrats lost 73000 or nearly fifty per cent In Min nesota the Republicans gained 25000 the Democrats lost 56000 In Nebras ka the Republicans gained 17000 and aboutffiftyfive per cent In Ohio the Republicans gained 76000 the Democrats lost 117000 Taking the country as a whole as iv have heretofore shown Roosevelt polledI 40000 votes more tHan McKinley re ceived in 1900 not more than a natural increase while Parker received 1150 000 fewer than were cast for Bryan f ur years ago In Missoqri where the indignation of the gold telegram was marked Cook Democrat though defeated by 2400 for secretary of state polled 2000 ParkereIn nearly every state in the union homesthus giving Roosevelt an unprecedented majorityIhad been nominated at St Louis who now doubts he would have polled at least a million more votes than were cast for Parker We say this not in criticism of those who nominated Parker We were of them and with them Those who nomi nated him could not foresee events that transpiredafter his nomination His selection then seemed wisest and best but it was the most stupendous mistake the Democratic party has made since 2E Town NewsIDrain Leaks Brave men are always afraid to do wrongDetermination never shakes hands with doubt Some men who think they are frank are only rude You cannot get close to God by draw ing apart from your neighbor History is often only tradition accept ed because of universalcredulity Wouldnt you rather associate with a man who is narrowminded but sincere than to associate with a man so liberal minded that he has no convictions at allOur idea of a mean man is the one who would delight in telling a child the facts about Santa Claus We are very apt to dub a man a crank if he refuses to giveup his opinions and accept our own You cannot catch the same rat twice in the same trap but you can a man This is no compliment to the man The strong man avoids temptation the weak man flirts with it it to prove that he can withstand itand fails Men often achieve fame because they care very little about it and do not al low thoughts of it to take up their time The heroes who die for their country are not entitled to any more credit than the heroes who live for their country Somehow or other we always feel chilled when a salaried choir stands up to siug the invitation hymn after a good we hear a church member com plaining of something the

Interests or the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent countiesJ Entered at the Columbia stoffice as second class mail matter WED DEG 21 19041i Now that the primary is over we think it about time our people shouldconsider something about water works and electric lights for our town Are we to sit down like a knot on a log and let such towns as Columbia move ahead of us in the onward march to prog ress Get down to business peo pIe and lets have some definite understanding about this matter We will soon be a has been town unless we stir more than in the past Dont talk so much unI less you mean businessTaylor County Enquirer The writer of the above seems to entertain an opinion that lumbia is a small fry and not worthy to be followed in point of enterprise and push In justice to Campbellsville her hospitable people and her business enterprises it is our opinion that both water and lights should be secured Campbellsvilleis a good town and in all the past no sneers have been pitched in her face by The News and in all the future it will not show any spirit of envy should it outstrip our home town in acquiring conveniences enter prises and metropolitan airs WC want to see Campbellsville push to the front and her growth and prosperity will not produce envy or regret Ve are here to say that Columbia is a good town andJ is building rapidly and as sub stantially as any inland town in the State We have the lights secured and are after the water in earnest It is but a question of time when Columbia will have a good system of water works May Campbelisville as Columbia grow and prosper and if the En quirer will fight the battles for that town VOice the sentiments pf her progressive citizens en courage other towns and coun ties rather than pitch out crop pings of envy the procession will move Southern Kentucky is our field Columbia our beloved homeiAn advocate of high taxes is not likely to have the sweet scented geranium pined on the lappet of his coat He is not walking in the path of popular praise for in nearly every community a clamor for low taxation is made a denunciation of those who increase the rate is heard In view of the fact that public expense public improvements arid general advancement of a town or county must draw sup port through tIle channel of tax ation ought to remind us all that ourtown and cOunty can not take an advanced position in improvement without a corresponding in crease of revenue collected and judiciously spent If a man beI- lievesin bettering public condi tions he ought to favor an inI crease of revenue and be willing to pay his part Weall know that thousands of dollars couldI be spent in making good and building a few more bridg that are badly needed that sue improvements would redound to the good of all in this section ft the State and yet our revenue is not sufficent to keep this work moving as it should This matter is in the hands of Court and nearly every of tHe coUrt realizes the memberI ty of keeping alive the r public enterprises that encourages and invigorates our people in parts of the county They hav ofjtaxation for the good accomplishe- de The City Council ought t look Columbia over and see what should be done and then do itI even if our tax should be increased The limit of taxation is not high and if it is necessary to reach that point tQ accomplish- the improvements needed then it should be done A spirit of improvement is with our and this should indicate to th council that we are all ready fo- dumping old methods that hamper and donning the new that en haute value and increases comforts and conveniences At this writing the drill has not been put to work in this county but preparations for it by two or more companies are progressing in a satisfactory manner The Big Trend Oil Company will penetrate the earth near Sparks ville 10 miles south of Columbia within a few more weeks an from surface indications andthe leaks of oils in that section it is believed that oil in paying quantities will be found The report of oil in several wells in that section is also an incentive to start the drill DrJ D Russell of New York State representing the Adair Oil Company has been in this county for several weeks with headquarters in Columbia- states that he is favorably impressed with this section an- at his company will begin thei r first well within two or thre weeks Mr Russell has been over a good portion of Adair and is willing to test different parts of the county if leases can be secured It need not be surprising to the readers of the News to the announcement that a gre gusher was struck at a certain place No one knows what a tale the drill will tell but the result will be correctly reported in the News The reports from the confli between Japan and Russia last week indicate that the Ja had secured advantageous pas i flans at Port Arthur and were in flitting severe punishment to that illfated city Just how long such dreadful carnage will tinge or what the end will be unknown but it looks like sia is moving slowly toward t battle field andrapidly from in some places The Japs h while the iron was hot before Russia could get her forces to gather and

helpful Every community has its peculiar environment and problems lumbia has hers and she must face the issue The jarfly that it may develop for the after life discards its old coat and spirits away leaving the ugly shell Columbia cannot and should not lift herself up and away from its hindrances of moral growth and leave them for some after journeymen to fall heir to But like the caterpillar which gradually changes its coat and form unJ til it becomes the beautiful butterfly Columbia must change its environment its coat itS life and solve its problems here This does not refer to that elegant citizEnship of Columbia that is above reproach in its moral life But reference is made to those who are but ought not to be of that lower moral stratum who cause the censorious eye to be cast about them who bring forth the complaint purported in this article who are justly censured by the goodI citizens of Columbia Our again called upon to consider A problem bearing upon the direct violation of a law passed by them the spirit of which is that no intoxicating drinks be handled in the towu of lumbia A class of people who persistly and audaciously go counter to the expressed sentiment of our good citizens The offense of this class is that they boldly make orders in large quanties from the distiller and peddle it A class who with the seller violate this law and commit this offense against our people by buying the intoxicant Now is the questionHow do you know there are sellers Because of the number of jugs that are transported here weekly Because the repute of parties in whose name the jugs are sent confirm such an opinion Because anyIcommunity as well as officers of the law know it is being sold but on account of the lying capacity of both seller and buyer few of the offenders have been convicted How do you know there are buy ers Because there are sellers Be cause of the betraying scented breath of men whose names are not found on dug tags and who could not consume so large qUanties were it ordered for them in the name of a gentleman of color Ours is said to be a local option town menI ofImoral uplift and standard keeping of their own community Reader shan this offense continue There ate men and women of our town who are imploring that it be put out of reach of their friends and loved ones There is remorse and suffering by reason of this cursesale

Washington that on questions on which the President and Republican congres sional leaders may differ the Democrats in Congress are expected to line up with the President- In this way so the argument seems to run serious divisions among the Republicans may be encouraged and a possible opening provided for Demo cratic profit Such arguments however seem toI overlook the matter of principle on which any real benefit to the Demo rat ic party must to the end be based Divisions among the Republicans fur thered by the Democrats regardless of their own convictions on the policies in in issue could be

own convictions on the policies in issue could be of but temporary value at best to the Democrats If they are to come into power again they must buildup the party on a firmer foundation than mere divisions among the Republi cans They must stand for their own convictions it matters not whether doing they stand with the President with his Republican opponents o against both factions of RepublicanS If the Democratic party is to be built pp on shifty and shallow opportunism if its representatives can be heard on any question with or against the Presi dent as may appear most likely to

so long as it shall remain a republic and they will inspire some political party whether that party be called Democratic or by some other name If there are wise Democratic leaders Washington they will see to it that it shall be the first aim of the Democrats in Congress to uphold those principles rather than to flock on any side of any fMI principle for the sole purpose of helping along a

JournalWANTPDWORISING CONSULS President Roosevelt is evincing a determination to extend the bounds of the civil service reform preserve to in clude pretty much everything not al ready corralled His latest move in this direction is an executive order in cluding 455 subordinate consular posi tions in the classified service If this order will have the effect of making the consular service a sort ofI training school in which bright efficient and ambitious young men begin on theI ground floor and by dint of merit work their way to consulships it will meet the hearty approval of the American commercial world which is constantly being given reason to lament the ineffi ciency of the consular service as a pro moter of our foreign trade lifeia young par tisans of the present administration the approval of the American commer cial world will be considerably quali fied If the merit system is needed any where for practical results it isin the consular service The spoils system has well nigh ruined this important depart ment of the public service The average consul is appointed through his political pull generally as a reward for more or less legitimate party ser vices and after he has landed the pointment he is prone to give his sons and nephews or some party cronys sons and nephews all the little clerk- ships at his disposal The office is worked as sort of a private sinecure with the term of service one unbroken siestaSometimes however the politician who lands in this sort of a birth is an author or thinks he is an author In that event he fixes himself comfortably to write and treats the duties of his office asmore becoming a superuumer ary who has no literary aspirations and little interest in Uncle Sams business save the fee brokerage We merely cite the authorconsul as one type of consular dawdler There are other types aud most of them dawdlers If a consul has any business abroad his business is to make business for American manufacturers and ex porters To do this most effectively he must throw a deal of energy into his office exercise no little special intelli gence and tact and give his personal attention and undivided time to the bor in hand Many consuls make the mistake of imagining that their posts have mainly tJ do with the polite fuctions of diplomacy Such a mistaken idea and the siesta proclivity have cost American commerce untold millions A consul who is not a trade hustler should be recalled and the place given to a man who can pave the way for the Yankee a commercial age We have no consulships that we can afford to allow to be treated as asylums for au thors or as sinecures or grafts of any the merit system will correct the old abuses well and good We need advennturers in these foreign outposts of our

Exchange was a scene of the wildes excitement the brokers being overriin with orders to sell and only a few buy es Railway and mining stocks fell rapidly and the panic was as great as that of May 9 1901 when the decline in Northern Pacific and other stocks in sympathy swept away many fortunes In the present panic the total decline in values of all the stocks that were hammered down by tha Bears amounted to about one hundred and ten millions As usual the Lambs alias the suckers were slaughtered in large numbers MRS MARCUMS DAMAGE Special to the Louisville Times Winchester Ky Dec 15The last witness in the Marcum case yesterday was Mrs Rebecca Bailey of Leslie county She is the mother of Mose Feltner who has figured so conspicuously in this case She told of Ed Callahan meeting her as she was on her way to attend the present trial and that he tried to get her to influence her son to be with the defense She also told of a visit by Fult French at her home in Leslie county French tried to get her to influence Moss Feltner so that his testimony should be in favor of the defense told her that the defense did not mind paying out eight or ten thousand dollars They could do that out of money for which they had no use that Feltner was making a great mis take in standing in with Mrs Marcum and Floyd Byrd that they had no in fluence and Feltner would probably get twenty years in the penitentiary and be hung when tried at Jackson for the murder of Jesse Fields that the de fense could get out of this trouble that the Circuit Judge had been elected by the Hargis influence and would do theirI bidding that Gov Beckham was their friend and would do what they wished The defense declined to crossexamine herThe first witness this morning was Hezekiah Combs of Morgan county He saw the dead body of Marcum and noticed a wound on his head and saw blood on his left side John Bays of West Liberty and now a Cincinnati drummer was clerking for Hargis Bros at the time Marcum was killed and saw his body Saw Henry Noble cross the street and afterward saw Tom White on the street Saw Jas Hargis in the store with his head resting on his hand James Hargis and Marcum were not friendly Alex Har= gis said Marcum had acted badly Tha formers wife was a niece of Marcum and sided with her uncle after being summoned as a witness in the Cynthi ana trial Alex Hargis asked witness if he did not see Jett on the street at the time of the shooting and witness said he did not Kelly Kash an attorney and cousin of Mrs Marcum was next introduced Immediately after the killing he says ha saw Jett standing in the side door o the courthouse He shortly after heard Jett and White in conversation with Mrs Mary Johnson but was not allow ed to tell what this conversation was Objection was raised and sustained to what the plaintiff avowed the witness would testify that Alex Hargis got very angry and ordered witness not to come again to the latters office in the Hargis building or even pass the store because witness drew up a power of attorney for Henry Hurst to accept bond in the case of Mose Feltner charged with the murder of Jesse Fields and that Hargis was mad because Kash as attorney was taking part in suits against him There has been much contention among the lawyers on each side as to the competency of certain testimony and Judge Benton in deciding the matter quoted copiously from decisions the Court of Appeals including th Caleb Powers case and decided that 3the acts and conversations sought to be shown here by witnesses in this were of a nature in furtherance of conspiracy or to establish a conspirac- to do unlawful things then that testi mony was competent Youth on the Parm- a The animals opa farm are a joy and a discipline too to the children What gymnasium

15Five times indicted by the Unite States at the exact minute that her train rolled into the station Mrs Cassio L Chadwick came home to Cleveland Wednesday afternoon She was greeted with jeers hoots and hisses by the crowds that gathered in the depot when her train arrived and howled at by hun federalIjail was the hoot of derision from the people massed in front of the doorway She made no attempt to give bail and after brief stops in the office of the clerk of the United States court was taken to jail She is held in cell 14 in the womans department of the jail and her palatial residence on Euclid avenue of which the furnishings alone are valued at 200000 is occupied by her maid Her courage held to the last but her body failed her and when she had mounted the three flights of stairs leading to the tier of cells where she is to remain she collapsed utterly and fell in a dead faint But for the aid of Deputy United States Marshals Kumb and Kelker who held her up and almost carried her along as she mounted the stairs she never would have been able to reach her cell Breathless pale and staggering she was barely able to reach a chair as the steel door of the womans corridor swung open to receive her She sank feebly Into a chair her head fell back ward and but for the marshals she would have rolled to the floor Water was quickly brought to her and in a few seconds she revived and was again a woman of business Her first request was that her lawyer Sheldon Q Kerruish bo sent for and she was soon engaged in a con deIher trial There are now seven dictments against herfive additional charges having been laid against her in the federal court Wednesday afternoon It would require surety to the amount of at least 100000 to give her freedom and there is nobody in Cleveland who will furnish that noIIeven as go best there is and there she must main The federal Indictments against Mrs Chadwick are five in number tbee of them charge her with aiding and abet ting officers of a national bank to de fraud the institution and two charge her with conspiring against the Unitet indictmentsjOberlin bank two charge him with misapplication of funds of a national bank one with conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States and one with certifying checks when no funds were on hand The indict ments against Cashier Spear are the same as those against President Beck first witness before the grand jury was United States Marshal Chandler who presented to the jury the sworn statement of President Beck with This is the document which has been called the confession of Beck with It set forth in effect that there wera two notes of 500000 each both signed in the name of Andrew Car negie and that Mrs Chadwick declar CashlieIa busy one for her She received several visits from her attorneys held long conferences with them conversed minutesBeckwith of tho Oberlin bank who has come to such great trouble through his financial transactions with her The meeting was dramatic The aged banker had been for hours before the county grand jury went to the office of Sheriff Barry Thursday afternoon and asked if he might sea Mrs Chadwick The sheriff readily consented and Mrs Chadwick was eager to meet him Accompanied by Mrs Beckwith who owing to her hus bands ill health is always by his side the aged banker made his way slowly and feebly up the long flights of stairs leading to Mrs Chadwicks IronI After some general conversation Beckwith referred to their re lations by saying Mrs Chadwick you have ruined me but Im not so sure yet you are a fraud I have to pLy last dollar and i do now that the time has coma for thinkI make known everything in this thing Beckwithjs voice betray ed deep emotion as he spoke and he leaned heavily on the arm of his wife supporthim replydtro out ner manner and tne took on ner face were not conciliatory Seeing that she would not answer Mr Beck with went on I have always told you that I did not like it because you Whydonthim Well said Mrs Chailwlck I have reasons for that Mr and Mrs Beckwith then both said they hoped the matters connected with the Chadwick affair would be eventually straightened out The in terview then closed Mrs Chadwick thanked him for calling shook hands with Mr and Mrs Beckwith and said she would be pleased to have them call again An application for an additional rc ceiver for the Chadwick estate was made in the common pleas court Thursday afternoon by the Savings Deposit Banking and Trust Co of Ely- ria 0 which has brought suit against Mrs Chadwick on two notes of 25 000 and 10000 respectively Mrs Chadwick Thursday afternoon retained the attorney who is to con duct her defense when she Is called for trial In the federal court He isI J P Dawley one of the leading crimi nal lawyers of Cleveland Sheldon Q Kerrulsh will assist Mr Dawley The present program of the federal authorities is to have Sirs Chadwick arraigned in the United States district court before Judge Wing on Monday next She will be asked to plead the chancoIis ablo to do so If her health is not such as to render the arrangement advisable it will be postponed Beckwith and Spear may be arrign cd at the same time but this has not yet been definitely decided upon Cleveland 0 Dec 17Mrs Chad wick will from now until the time of her trial or arraignment in court bo rigidly excluded from all visitors and even her son and nurse will be denied permission to see her except on the written order of United States Marshal Chandler Friday afternoon at 3 oclock an order was received at the jail by Sheriff Barry directing him to deny all people the privilege of seeing her and at once ordered that tho nurse Freda Swanstrom who was then in the jail with Mrs Chadwick be ordered to leave This action was in direct oppo sition to an order of United States Marshal Chandler issued Thursday in which he directed that Emil Hoover the son of Mrs Chadwick and tho nurse should be admitted at any time to see Mrs Chadwick The order applies to them as well as to anybody else said the sheriff and I will ignore the order of Marshal Chandler This is a county jail and the federal authorities have noth Ing to say about its administration If they dont like the way I run it iguess they can take their prisoners to some other jail- Sheriff Barry has done everything possible for the comfort of Mrs Chad wick and the implication carried by Judge Wings order that he was lowing too many people to see her was not pleasing to him Young Hoover and the nurse have been making trouble ever since Mrs Chadwick has been here ho added They have been saying that too many people were allowed to see Mrs Chad wick and now I think that they will- Ie p out of here themselves Turning to a deputy he repeated his orders to have the nurse leave the jail at once and a few minutes later Miss Swanstrom passed through the sher ills office on her way to the street Sheriff Barry further declared that no visitors to Mrs Chadwick would bo permitted to see her except in Ute reg ular visiting hours at the jail which are 1 to 3 oclock on every day except Saturdays Sundays and holidays The order of Judge Wing put a riod to the episodes at the jail and her attorneys declared Friday afternoon that there would be no further developments in the legal end of the ease until Mrs Chadwick was brought into the courts either for arraignment or trial Receiver Loeser has been trying several days to arrange the time at which he would summon Mrs Chadj wick into the bankruptcy court her attorneys will oppose this and wiUII object to any questions being her before she is called for trial Any attempt to have her answer questions that may prejudice her case will be opposed and it was as erted with con fidence by one of them that nothing more will be done in the case until March SI F Bramley a wealthy contractor called on Mrs Chadwiclc just prior to the receipt of Judge Wings order with Sheldon Q Kerruish one of Mrs Chad wicks attorneys He was asked if ho was going to give bail for her and said he was not When asked if ho intended to furnish money for the expenses of her defense he Jaughed and reptly7AItwR af4CSrffr rvp IAn
