feeling toward William Jennings Bryan in 1896 and 1900 there is no discounting the fact that the Parker and Davis ticket hadno abler supporter than Mr Bryan in 1904 and while results prove that he was unsuccessful in his effort to carry with him the whole of his personal constituency there is no denying that once the nominations were made the full force of his eloquence and his powers of leadership were exert ed in behalf df the Democratic nominees Nor has his course since the election of Mr Roose velt been less creditable It is chiefly owing to Mr Bryan that abuse of Democratic leaders and crimination and recrimination have not been permitted to add still further to the discomfiture of the party staggering under the weight of the most disastrous re verse in its history At the same time he has indulged in no use less effort to embarrass the Pres ident in carrying out the policies to which the country has given its approval- If his advice to Democrats is followed and his example made a guide of conduct the remaining representatives of the Democrat ic party in Congress will not fall far short of a standard of broad thought and intelligent action In recognizing that the time has passed when the Democratic par ty can hope either to deserve or command success by remaining the party of blind opposition Mr Bryan has hit on the one method that can eventually change de feat into victory He is growing steadily in the confidence of many Democrats who formerly opposed him and has lost none of his hold on the men who championed his cause eight years ago Louisville Times YOSEMITe

enough He has out lived his usefulness if indeed he was ever useful Some young man With more brains and less wind should be allowed to take his place Let the Legislature when it meets next Winter see

Democratic primaryJ for the nomination for county su perintendent of schools writes to The Casey County News and tells about the race It is plain that Bro Ferrell was not in a very en viable frame of mind when he wrote We would advise him Iot- to cry over spilled milk TheI truth Bro Ferrell like the shoe maker ought to have stuck to his last He is a fairly good preacher and entered the minisI istry with Baptist ideas and en tering political scramble for of flee looked to a man up a tree like putting his hands to theI plow and looking back Bro inlcommon by a desire to benefit humanity Than himself pecuniarily but suf fered defeat and ought to accept it with grace snd should go back to the pulpit where he belongs and where he is able to do much more good than he could ever have

Lesson in Imperialism Russia is furnishing the world- a lesson in imperialism that ought not to be lost on the American advocates of the doctrine of be nevolent assimilation The Czar in defending his

a government restin on force can not be defende among civilized people without resort to the subterfuge of Di vine Rights Every argument not mercenary in its character advanced in support of colonialism will be found to rest upon a supposed duty and yet those who voluntarily assume the performance of this kind of a duty always place such a high estimate upon their services that they pay them selves well at the expense of those whom they serve For illustra tion compare the luxury of th Czars household with the priva tions of the Russian peasant or thePhilippinegov1Iernor g e Thte per

slope of the Locust Grove cemetery near Schofield January 7th 1905 aged 20 years and one month She was born and raised in that grand old state where the meadow grass is blue coming to Oklahoma about two years ago She had been sick since last May and death came as an angel ofmercy to give respite from suffering The finale came Thursday night at 1130 surrounded by sorrowing friends and rela tives She waved a last farewell to her father and caressed for the last time her patient and de voted mother as with a smile of ineffable sweetness on the calm face the gentle spirit winged its flight to

phases of our multi plex life the question of forestry is of paramount importance and farming everywhere Ought to welcome the information and in struction that is coming from so many sources on this theme To replace in some measure at least the forests so ruthlessly stroyed and to rehabilitate th earth with its gorgeous mantle of trees surely is a work that in spires the imagination and calls for

there are any heart burnings over the conference between Mr Bryan and PresideIt Roosevelt it will be on the part of those eminent gentlemen who were forced by neces sity to give the republican candidate their support in last years presidential campaign and who went about charg ing that he was unsafe These will be found adopting an Itoldyouso atti tude and those within earshot will hear Mr Roosevelt criticised as democrat 0 and populist No democrat will object to Mr Bryan telling the president he approves that portion of his message which calls for the cure of railroad abuses Nobody would have a right to object for Mr Bryan is a private citizen and as such entitled to express his views upon any subject or at anytime to anybody But even if they had this right most demo crats would be found approving rather than condemning j For in calling for improvement in the relations of the railroads to the public Mr Roosevelt but gave voice to a de mand which is not only democratic in itself but has frequently been set forth in billsubmitted to congress by demo crats only to be pigeonholed by repub lican majorities If the republican president is wise enough and brave enough to join with the democrats there will be no criticism of him in democratic ranks As we understand it Mr Bryans approval does riot go to any particular measure but refers ouly to the prin ciples involved Certainly it is not probable that a republican congress will ever pass a law which will go to the length of the democratic demand In the face of the present popular de mand the house will probably pass some bill but if we are to judge by the different bills coming from republican sources any that is passed will fall far short of meeting the exigencies or cur ing the evils This will be true as

in session thirteen days at a cost of 13000 to the taxpayers of the state It was called together simply and solely tose lact a site for the new capitol So far this has not been done and the surface indicationsarethatmatters are in such a tangle that it may not be done at all It is increditable that a body intelligent citizens such as a legislature should b e can find itself in so astounding a position I There is no overwhelming public sentiment for any site that has been ugI Iy r f I r I gested as a location for the Kentucky capitol there is no clamor that Frank fort shall remain the capital of Itstateas a matter of coldblooded fac it would go to Louisville if submitted to a vote of those interested There was no pressing demand for any extra session at all But there is a strong

The man who wrote My Old Ken tncky Home died fortyone years ago In this period his ballad has gone around the world carrying his sentiment and Kentuckys name into all climates In some European countries it has taken precedence over all other American airs and is esteemed the one representative American song- Kentuckians love this song But Kentucky and Kentuckiaus have done nothing to honor Stephen Collins Foster nor to make known their gratitude for his enduring melody And yet not less than the politician who makes and some times breaks our laws does he deserve a monument Kentucky owes him thatAnd while Kentuckians should pay him tribute for My Old Kentucky Home his memory should be affection ately held by all Americans for he was the greatest of all American song writers His songs have entered into the national e Only a genius could have written Old Folks at Home Old Black Joe 0 Susannah Nel ly Wasa Lady Uncle Ned Nelly Bly Old Dog Tray Willie We have Missed You and Come Where My love Lies Dreaming And these are only the bestkuown of a total list of 125 compositions They are not elaborately devised nor do they offer the scientific musician great oppor tunity for technical

head were held But the spectacle presented by this and other similar controversies over the inauguration of a president of the Uni ted States is an unseemly one and if there is any way to prevent it in the future the people of the country at large will be glad Perhaps the pro vision for a joint committee of congress to assume entire charge of all ceremonies and amusements incident to the big quadrennial show may solve the problem Certainly it is worthy the serious consideration of congressAt lanta Constitution Luxury and Poverty One hundred and twentyfive dollars a day is charged for the best suit of rooms in a new hotel in New York City and one of the wealthiest men in the coun try declined to occupy the suit recently on the ground that he could not afford it About the same time the news papers weretelling the story of an old waman from a country town in Pennsylvania who having unexpectedly in herited 800 went to New York hired a room with a bath at 20 a day and stay ed at the hotel until she had spent every dollar She took several baths a day tho get the worth of her money and when she was not in the tub sat at the window watching the passing crowd The contrast misleads some commentators into arguing that the rich man was a miser and the poor woman a spend thrift but this is a shortsignted view says the Youths Companion To the one the superfluous luxury was not worth the extra cost because he was used to luxury The other accustomed to poverty may have felt that she was paying a low price in exchange for a gorgeous memory that would gild the remainder of her days q

noise that excited him and he went in search of the cause To his surprise he found a cow fully 20 feet up a hollow sycamore that had blown down and which belonged to a widow of that section He notified the family and the cow was released from her perilous po sitiod by the use of an ax Some one hadstored some turnips in the log and the cow went after them so far that she was unable to extricate herself On another occasion Mr Neat stated that a man while cultivating his corn in the bottom near where Mr Phil Knifley now lives his horse fell into a hollow sycamore stump the earth

At the age pf eighteen years fiftytwo years ago the above distinguished citizen then an inexperienced young man left his country home five miles out and came to Columbia to face the re sponsibilities and fight the battles of an active public career and the many familiar with the results of his labors and accom plishments know how well he succeeded His only capital was honor honesty and industry backed by a strong mind unwav ering purpose and a good English education Thus armed he ac cepted a position of deputy clerk of the circuit and county courts of this county under Wm Caldwell Three years later he was elected county school commissioner While performing the duties of clerk and school commissioner he burned the midnight oil in pre paring himself for the profe3sion of law and in 1856 was admitted to the bar and his knowledge of law and general fitness soon pointed him out as a suitable man for county attorney which position he filled with a marked de gree of success After the expi ration of his term as county attorney he practiced his chosen profession uninterrupted until 1871 when he was chosen to rep resent this county in the Ken tucky Legislature for the years 71 72 and 73 and while in that body he was chosen a member of the committee on judiciary and statutes a position where only the deepest legal talent is sought In 1874 immediately after the ex piration of his services in the Legislature Ije was elected Cir cuit Juflge of the Sixth Judicial District composed of the counties of Adair Metcalfe Barren CumblandGlintonMonroeHart Allen and retired from that hon orable station with the esteem of his constituents and the honor and reputation of an able impartial jurist In 1881 he was elected senator of this the 16th Senatorial district and was again placed on the committee of judiciary and railroads and later was made chairman of the judiciary com mittee in this capacity he la bored faithfully and effectively and retained that high esteem of J j iv il J it y S 5jjJL f 1 r i H Vihis associates as an able lawyer and legislator In 1898 Judge Garnett entered the race for the Democratjcnomination for Appel latejhdgdof this district He lost that prizthat position which would have more fully demonstra ted to the people of this State his thorough comprehension of law and its ust application simply because he would not stoop to low and groveling methods That fight was made and lost with honor and dignity while success seemed to be in reach through means and methods of questiona ble nature He spurnedevery intimation of such a course and stated to his close friends that through honorable and dignified methods he would wjor lose He kept the faith Since that date he has practiced his profession with his only son James Garnett Jr our present county attorney and enjoeda large clientage which was common with him from the beginning of his chosen profession Judge Garnetts life was not alone spent in one channel nor his usefulness confined to law and official posi gentlemanIhe was appreciated in the fullest manner An ardent Baptist educated in parlimentary methods he was a distinguished figure in the denomination in this State and for forty years the Modera tor of Russells Creek Associa tion which position was his until death came As a neighbor friend and philanthropist he measured up to that high de gree which marks the man of no ble purposes and crowns his acts with due appreciation He dodg fedno duty to this section giving i freely to every demand made for worthy purposes A true regard springJ1 a business man his estate is sufficient proof of success For 12 years he had been President of the Bank of Columbia and at no other time in the successful career of that safe institution has fit been more prosperous than the time he has served as its official head As a father and husband s the intimacy and devotion be- tweenhe and his family was par 2 j r ij JY rjv Z ticularly noticeable and on many occasions we have heard commendable praise of this happy state that makes home akin to heaven Such manifestations of devotion were more discernable to the public in the relations be tween his son and himself who were partners in business Not the least sign of friction ever ap peared between them but per fectly agreeable in every thing as C9mpanionable as two schoolboys wrapped up in good will they went from office

morning upon learning that Mr Al Myers and Miss Carrie Page were married the evening before at the residence of the brides parents Mr and Mrs J N Page It was the intention of the contracting parties to keep the whole matter a secret for a few days but Mr R G Coffey of Dallas Texas cousin of the bride and who was present thought it best to apprise the parents of the young lady who were absent from home when the ceremony was said and who did not know of the intended union of what had occurred and accordingly the in formation was conveyed It was a great surprise but there were no ob jections upon the part of the parents of the bride nor the family of the groom Little romance that is all The groom is a popular young gentle man the oldest son of Mr and Mrs WR Myers of this place and at pres he is assisting his father in the lent business He is industrious and habits are good hence he need not be afraid of the future The bride is the only child of DrJ N Page and wife and is a young woman of

bAIRUsSi Red Sunday Si Ghastly intolerably sickening was the spectacle in St Peters burg Sunday mirrored by the graphic press dispatches The white glistening snows of the czars capital splotched crimson with the blood of men women and children of the little fathr erf who like that recreant Baal of the scriptures was placidly deaf to the cries of his subjects The ofathe whole thing A vast plan less mob of unarmed people re f ceiving as their answer to a pray er for but scant justice a hail of bullets at close range followed up by the slashing of sabers and the whistling of knouts directed indiscriminately at fleeing men shrieking women and bewildered babes The calm cold Russian sun smiling down bravely on the disheveled corpses marring the pure crust of the snow the gay notes of a military band chiming with the rattle of volleys the moans of the dying and the bit ter curses of impotent bereaved hUlnanityIAccustomed as it is to tales of blood and brutality from Russia the civilized world must hear this latest report with horror and re vulsion The unequal conditions the wanton massacre the mailed hand of implacable autocracy snuffing out incontinently the lives of the people on whom for centuries it has f depended for its sustenance and its perpetuity of power are symptoms of such gravity that they cannot be ig nored in the speculation which has to do with the immediate present and the ominous future Descending t o unemotional analysis it does not now appear that the developments of Sunday are freighted with possibilities of imminent or widespread revolution Absolutism is badly shaken and its ultimate doom is written in the blood which dyes the snow about the czars winter palace The turbulence and consequent catastrophes of Sunday evolved with stunning rapidity from a be ginning which even the most as tute of Nicholas councillors could not have believed held the men ace of incipient revolution For some months the army of workmen employed at the Putiloff naval construction works have made insistent demands on their employers for relief from the oner ous conditions under which they labored They ask that the 11 hour day be abridged to 8 hours that a proportionate increase in wages be granted and the princi pie of arbitration conceded Their pleas were either ignored or met with exasperating evasions Throughout the negotiations George Gopon a highly educated priest of great whoahas from his birth espoused the cause of the people impressed on the employers the danger of ul timate riot and toamake even qualifiedconcessions He declared that the squalor and misery of the overtaxed laborers were slowly perverting them in to desperate dangerous beasts and that a time might come even when he could not restrain their resentment Still no response The employers had heard the cry of wolf wolf befare and at tached no special importance to it Only last week came the strike involving about 10000 skilled and ordinary mechanics Captained- by Gopon they reiterated their demands to no avail Then the storm broke For years and years the socialist and revolutionary propagandists had sown their sentiments among the workmen of St Petersburg showing them how the idle rich I fattened on their labor how they were superciliously deprived ofa voice in the policies of the gov ernment they supported and final 7 Jv the hopelessness ofv their i I 1Yfic JL3 r r a cause As lonasthejwissu did not bring the e peror and people into direct conflict these doctrines could not becomevitalized with the seed of open revolt In the meantime however the government was prosecuting an unpopular war in the Far East and the agitators were given fresh practical material for their inflammatory campaign So when the Putiloff strikers were ignored by the government and shown a repellent front by their employers it was not a dif ficult to induce the laborers at works environing the capital and the labor element generally in St Petersburg to join forces with the demonstrators The rest is newspaper history Dis affection one started has propelled itself until it assumes threatening proportions involving cliques and human divisions hitherto uncounted in the possi ble equation and necessitating drastic repression to prevent its attaining national scope j That the latter is not more im minent is due to three powerful factors 1 the fact that the people are panicstricken by Sun days slaughter unarmed and without plans and leaders of military genius 2 the vast pre ponderance of Russian population being agricultural living away from the cities inaccessible to revolulionary teaching and therefore incapable of coopera ting with the more enlightened urban masses 3and probably the most important the fact that in spite of isolatedexceptions the government retains control of the army and having the ad vantage of organization both po lice and military is prepared to quell insurrection indefinitely For the present then the status appears stationary But the atrocity of Sunday will spread like a quick pang through the nervous system ofmighty Rus sia stirrings the instincts of con sanguity and common human brotherhood

Odessa and a few smaller places are extending the situation is nowhere acute An increasing number of workmen are out in Moscow but there is no general tie up or disorder there The Russian capital presents almost a normal appearance and the authorities are confident that the back bone of the strike has been broken Some factories and mills already have resumed and a general resumption of operations is expected on Monday The authorities expect that the fail ure of the strike here will have a dis couraging effect upon the workmen in other cities to which the troubles have been spreading and believe that there is no longer danger of a complete sus pension of all the industrial concerns of Russia Minister of the Interior Sviaopolk Mirsky has promised a delegation of editors who called upon him that he will investigate the arrest of p number of prominent writers who are now confined in the St Peters and St Paul fortress and secure their release as soon as possible No Serious Collisions in Moscow Moscow Jan 27 Although the strike is steadily spreading the move- mentI thus far has not been accom I panied by collisions Of great gravity The events were restricted to minor

to be the scenes of greatest violence and troops were being rushed in At Radom the revolutionists blew up sev eral buildings with dynamite I ern outskirts of the city in which the troops successfully resisted all ef forts of the crowds to break through the cordon No bloodshed is reported Both the authorities and the masters have showed admirable coolness in the face of the situation the former

ploy hundreds of thousands of men he saw no more than 200 workmen in the streets and discovered that the mer are all staying in doors It appears that when the strikers made the round of the mills calling on their comrades to quit work under threat of wrecking the plants the masters decided to allow the men to take a holiday with full pay provided they remained in their dwellings and the workmen unanimously consented the result being that the intimidators were disarmed I CANADA TO COrN ITS COLD Branch of the British Mint Will 3e Established in Dominion Will Cost a Big Sum JIIontreal Can Canada is at last to have a mint of its own for coining gold There is no absolute necessity for such an institution for the British mint has always managed to coin the Canadian currency or when too busy has managed to hand it qver to some reliable firm of t private coiners in Birmipgham but popular demand has compelled the gov ernment to take steps toward the estab lishment of a dominion mint It will cost the government 75000 a year which the officials have guaranteed for the running expenses of the institu tion and besides that they will lose the revenue which they gained in the past from their gold and silver being coined on the other side of the Atlantic The new establishment however will result in the millions of gold that comesjrom the Canadian Klondike being kept and coined

or unable to agree to concessionsThe textile factory alone continues working The district across the Moskva river is heavily guarded the authorities remain confi dent and the police patrols have been
