that was more delightfully spent than Tuesday of last week The crowd present has been variously estimated from four tolsix thousand people representing Adair and adjoining counties who were here to meet and shake hands with old friends who have been absent from this county many of them from twenty to fiftyfour years- JTherewere many affecting scenes bringing tears to the eyes of once stalwart men but who are now bent with years and who are nearing the end of their earthly pilgrimage It is not often that you see a young person who can keep down feelings of emotion when he witnesses old men andold women shedding tears of joy In front of the Marcum Hotel we witnessed a scene that will never pass from our recollection Seated in front of the formerthcitizen of the county who removed West more than forty years ago but who had returned once or twice for a short visit He has a niece whom he had never seen in Columbia about six teen years old and who was notified that her uncle was in town A friend meetming of that old man and the little gir was the most affecting scene that ever came under our observation The man tr his head white with the frosts of nearly eighty winters and the tender little child became speechless and wept for joy We turnedfrom the scene say ing God bles you old man may you live to see your niece blooming wom of4sYher own surrounded by loved ones But we started out to write what was done at the Fair Grounds Gov J R Hindman who was mas ter of ceremonies called the meeting to order at 10 oclock and the exercises were opened by Rev W H C Sandidge who delivered a short religious talk followed by a prayer offered by Rev A R Kasey A song was then rendered after which Gov Hind man delivered the opening address He was in speaking mood never happier in his life making every home feel that he was again among God people who knew how to treat their own A well written address by Hon E L Dohoney of Paris Texas was then read which was enthusiasically re ceived Judge J G Winfrey of Evansville Ind then took the stand paying tribute to his old home town arid county Judge Winfrey is an en tertaining speaker an orator but upon his occasion his effort was

fact it could not have been better done yet with full appre ciation of all the heartiness we are ready to say with the brave Kentucky soldier Kentuckians kneel to no one r but God Nowhere in Adair County is this truth more apparent than in the hospitable home of Mr and Mrs S G Banks of Cane Valley On Thursday the 21st of June more than a score of Home Com ers enjoyed a feast at their always

of Mayhe bought and shipped 4862 dozen of eggs and so r June is proving abatea month for eggs and far ahead for chick iens It will be remembered that six years ago there was no one engaged in this business in Columbia and the sale of fowls and eggs were scarcely worth notice Mr Sam Lewis was the first one to open up in this business and from the very start received good trade At this time three tirms enjoy a nice trade this line and thousand of dollars are distributed in our county every month The fact is that but few people can af ford to keep their eye off the poultry business and every

TKentuckians at Columbia Ky i I LADIES GENTLEMEN AND FRIENDS OF ADAIR COUNTY It would afford me pleasure to again meet and greet the citizens of my native county but fate has ruled otherwise business calls me elsewhere Though absent In person I will be with you in spirit and as pints is expressed in words I send you my final greet ing in writing As old Bobbie Burns said to his young friend Perhaps it will turn buta song perhaps a sermon And first let me extend thanks I for the glorious Home Coming which in your generous hospitali 7ty you have provided for the prodigals who have wan dered away from their native homes In behalf of the great State of Texas of the grand and mighty West and of every prodi gal son and daughter who has ever wandered away from the beautiful county of old Adair we wish to return our thanks for the eloquent address of welcome and express to all the people of the entire county of Adair our grati tude for this grand Home Com ing and hospitable reception We are satisfied that the latchstring of every home is hanging on the outside and that like the man in the Bible you have killed the fatted calf and that you intend to put robes on our bodies shoes I f on our feet and rings on our fingers 7 V To melt is especially pleasing to again address the people of Columbia where more than fifty years ago I delivered my first ad dreses Columbia the home and nursery of heroes and statesmen will always occupy a proud place in the temple of Kentuckys fame Here was rearedthat able statesman Geo A Caldwell whose voice was heard in the halls of Congress in behalf of the annexation o Texas tQJe Union a wise policy which prevailed and gave to the Union what is now conceded to be the empire State here too was born Isaac Cald i well who settled in Louisville Y and became one of the leading lawyers of the State here lived Judge Wheat an able jurist who served with distinction in your Court of Appeals from here went Thomas E Bramlett who j became the great war Governor of Kentucky Want of time pre vents me from referring to many equally distinguished citizens who were born in Columbia f More than fifty years ago yow humble speaker came into Colum bia from the hills of Big creek and entered college At the tr end of the session the honor of I v the valedictory was Accorded me YG I will never forget that speech The subject was The origin progress and future destiny of V our country It atedex- f pansion and the ultimate absorb t 1 tion of Cuba and the other West h zt Indies Mexico and Canada and F threw out a prophetic forecast j which theb tory of the liepub 1jdic is rapidly fulfilling That fe jtspeech established jnreputation 4 air least as far Wesfcas Big creek 1 lt35ig Creek Whafca rush of iBweefe liJfr r t1 t memories that name brings up r On the waters of that famous creek I spent my boyhood days There is not a hole from its mouth to its junction with Barley fork below Gradyville in which- i have not fished and swam On a beautiful farm on the West bank of this stream I was raised The residence stands up on the top of the hill and at the foot of the hill the old spring trickles out and runs into an iron kettle which my father placed there over seventy years ago Here on hot Summer days my brothers and I used to come to slake our thirst and rest under the shade f the old beech trees which yet stand around the spring To our minds even to this day The old oaken bucket the iron bound bucket the moss covered bucket which hung from the well which has been im mortalized by the poet is not halfso dear as the old iron kettle which for three quarters of a century sat under the spout at the foot of the old home stead hill Some poet should im mortalize that kettlet On the crest of that homestead hill commanding a fine view of the Big Creek valley under the shade of the beautiful sugar ma pie rests the mortal remains of my parents a brother and three sisters My revered parents though favored by llttle educa tion passed all the cardinal vir tues of life They were honest truthful industrious economical and faithful Both by precept and example they impressed good moral characters upon their children and gave them the ad vantage of a fair education They performed well their work on reLr ward But I am dwelling too long on Big Creek and its sacred en vironments I love every creek and branch and spring and all the hills and valleys in Adair county And after having seen all the best parts of the West and Southwest as well as much of the North and the East I want to say here and now there is no part of America more beautiful than Adair county and in my opinion no better country In this connection I want give you achunck of wisdom from hill philosopher from Adair coun ty In 1859 the Sunday before I started to Texas I met old Bil lie Coomer at a Methodist meet ing in the hills of Big creek He said Young man you are going to Texas let me tell you something When you sum up all the advantages and disadvantages you will find that one country is as good asahother The experience of half a cen tury have taught me that this is literally true All countries have their advantages and disadvant ages butwhenyou strike the fiat lence one country is as good as another Billie Goomer W a s fright t And why jsnould ifr not so Tfie iBfellsuS tbatGfui w3 di i 2 il 4 r t ft 2 3 rl 4 1 crjot t no respecter of person wfiy should He be arespecter of coun tries But Tam lingering tQO long in the beautiful hills of Adair coun ty I must extend my view and takein the prond commonwealth of Kentucky Throughout the civilized world the name of Ken tucky is a synonym for hospitali ty and chivalry The wisdom of her statesmen is written in the history of the republic and the valor of her soldiers is inscribed in the temple of fame side by side with the heroes of Greece and Rome Miltiades at Marathon and Themistocles at Salamis were no greater generals than Zachariah Taylor at Buena Vista and Sid ney Johnston at Shiloh and both the latter were sons of Kentucky Kentucky is located geographically on the line of lattitude which is best adapted to the growth and development of life mineralvegetable animal and human No where North or South does life in any of its forms attain such perfection as Kentucky The fame of the fine horses and cattle of Kentucky has reached the ends of the earth And the prodicals who have re turned to you today from the North South and West can tes tify that the vegetables of our adopted States never attain the luscious sweetness of like prod ucts in Kentucky No brighter galaxy of statesmen can be found on the pages of his tory than Clay Rowan the Wick liffs Marshalls Hardins Breck enridges and many others who might be mentioned America has produced no abler preacher than R J Breckeriridge and no greater philosopher than Joseph Rodes Buchanan And for beau ty and intellect the women of Kentuckystand in the frontrank The daughters of Cassius Clay and others stand side by side with Susan B Anthony Frances E Willard in the ranks of ie form r This superior development of man on the soil of Kentucky both physical a nd mental leads to great individuality of character and talents Every individual claims the right to think speak and act for himself This necessarily leads argument and contention The man who believed slavery a di vineinstitution and the man who regarded it a great sin grew upside by side and Kentucky became the hot bed of religious and political discussion In fact from time immemorial Kentucky has been the theatre of contention veryithe North and South met in her great cane brakes to fight their battles andeventhenitwas known as the dark and bloody ground WhenDanIelBooneSIm9nK- entQn and other piopeers and explorers crossed the Alleghanies leading the vanguardof civiliza tion into this dark and bloody ground the contest was chang ed from a war of Indian tribesto wastheSaxImand the Celt against the aborigines of the country

reading in Collins history of Kentucky when a boy of one woman who defeated sev en Indian braves She killed five of them and run the other two off thereby saving herself fam ily and home When the great Civil war came Kentucky supplied Generals to both the Union and Confederate armies While Crittenden Rous seau Hobson Wolford and oth ers commanded Union hosts Breckenridge Helm Zollicoffer Morgan and others led the Con federate armies But far more Kentucky furn ished the two great civil and military leaders of this the mOEt hisr tory Twentyfive miles north of dayIseventyfive miles Southwest was born Jefferson Davis the great leader of the Lost Cause Lincoln was the representative of the common people of every race and clime With one stroke of his pen he struck the shackles of slavery from four millions of the black race preserved the Un ion and took his history as our next greatest man to Washington In history Washington will be known as the father of his country and Lincoln as the pre server of the Union While Davis honorable chival rous and pure in all his relationsI both pulic and private was a fit leader for the Southern chivalry and although he led a forlorn hope and sank with the Lost Cause his name will live in his tory as a remarkablema l Human life is a strange admix ture of good and evil As each of us pass through life from the cradle to the grave Wemeet with at least ten failures to one suc cess and yet every one of these failures is a necessary part of our education a component part of evolution as it sweeps us onward to our final destiny All things work together for good to them that love the Lordsays the Apostle Paul In 1066 the banner of the Sax oils went down on the field of Hastings and William the Con querer with a band of land pirates from Normandy took possession of the lands and public positions of honor and profit in England and their descend ents remain in possession of the bulk of both until this day Yet the nation

men in the Unit ed States Senate It may not foe out of place to explain briefly why many of us opposed Secession and after wards served in the Confederate army We could not afford toj fight our own people we had to act as states While we said that secession would bring war the destruction of slavery and tem poraryruin of the South which prophecyI the State and afterwards to the Union and if our State seceded we would go out with the State This was the position of Gen eral Houston Alexander Stevens afterwards vicePresident of the Confederacy Generalds Lee Joe Johnston A Sydney Johnson and many other leading men of the South They opposed seces sion but went out of the Union with their respective states The greatest act in the life of Grand old Sam Houston was the refusI al to fight his own people When President Lincoln sent him a commission as Major General in the Union Army he de clined it saying The State ofI Texas has gone wrong but IJ cant afford to fight my own peo T pie But to return to Kentucky she has ever been the key to the arch of the Union and when Ken tucky refused to secede she there by preserved the union of states It was impossible for the Con federacy to succeed without the aid of Kentucky The pivotal position which Kentucky occupies in the arch of the Union is proclaimed in the motto inscribed On her seal of state United we stand divided we fall From the National standpoint Kentucky has ever stood with Clay and Webster for Liberty K and Union now and forever one K and inseparable But in state iaffairs the majority of her peo pie stand with Thomas

distinguished men which Kentucky has given to the great West To Illinois a United States Senator Cullum one Vice President Adlai Stephenson and one President the great Lincoln whom we have already referred who will ever stand next to Washington among our historic charactersWhen go to Missouri we find a second Kentucky transplanted on the West bank of the Mississippi river The majority of the people are Kentuckians and their descendants Among the Kentuckians who have reached distinction we may mention Ex Governor Francis who will ever be known in history as the head of the association which organ ized and operated the biggest and best show ever inaugerated The Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 19031904 Kentucky al so furnished Missouri another governor in the person of Thos T Crittenden and United States Senator W J Stone And last but by no means least that giant intellect George G Vest This man stood for years in the United States Senate and fought against great odds the steady invasion of the rights of the people by the public robbers The Congressional Record contains many of his firery protests against the in roads of the plutocracy on the Constitution and the liberties of the people To Texas and the SouthWest the gifts of Kentucky have been most generous Col Ben Milam a Kentuckian fought the first battle and gained the first victory in the Texas revolution but un fortunately for Texas this hero fell in his first fight Some oi his Kentucky followers were with Crockett Travis and Bowie a few weeks later at the Alamo where a hundre and eightyfive men fought the Mexican army for many d sand died to a man At the entrance of the old capi tol in Austin stood a monument to the heroes of the Alamo and on it was thisins ription Therf mopalae had her mess defeat butthe Alamo had none And there were Kentuckians with the heroic Houston at the famous battle of San Jacinto few weeks later where 783 Texans defeated and destroyed a Mexican army of nearly Tfoa thousand men and with many other prisoners captured their general Santa Anna and thereby secured the independence of Tex as and finally its annexation to the United States In this great bettle the Texans only lost eight men and 17 wounded The annexation of Texas pro ducedjflie Mexican war in 1846 It was Kentucky that furnished the general who led the United States army and gained the bril

twentytwo thousand regular troops It was here that the seconds Kentucky volunteers saved the day in the crisis of the battle but lost heavily including the gallant Col McKee and lieuten ant Col Clay the latter a son of the great Henry Clay Kentucky also gave to Texas Albert Sydney Johnson probably as great a general as fought in the civil war and his honored re mains are resting in the State Cemetery at Austin where we placed them when removed from New Orleans in 1871 General Johnson gained a great victory on the first day of the battle of Shiloh and had he not fallen the victory would have been complete General Beaure gard stopped the advance and that night General Buell arrived with forty thousand fresh Feder al troops Overpowered by su perior numbers the Confeder ates were compelled to give up the field of their victory and slowly retire General Breckeni ridges corps covered General Beauregards retreat and that day it was Kentuckians fighting Kentuckians When Greek meets Greek then comes the tug of war The death of General Johnson lost the only hope of the Confedi eracy It is true its sun did note finally set until Appomattox but it was in eclipse from the day that JJohnston ll and Shilohwas lost Had he gained that battle and entered Kentucky the Confederacy would still have had a chance to succeed but with the loss of Shiloh and the death of Johnston all hope was gone Though he lost his life and thei fruits of his great victory the fame of this great Kentuckian rests secured and in the language of 0 Kara the beautiful war poet of Kentucky the Heroic spirit of Sydney Johnson is tenting on fames eternal camping ground Kentucky has been generous to Texas in statesmen as well as in military heroes Fr mMun ordsville went John Ireland who became the Governor of Texas Kentucky also gave us Roger Q Mills the greatest tariff reformer the Democratic party has pro duced since the Civil war and Sam Bell Maxey from the adjoining county of Clinton who became a General in the Confed crate army and also a United States Senator also General Webster Flanagan who went from Cloverport and became one iof the leading Republicans of Texas The General is the

1andfair expression of the voters as to whom shall be honored makes his announcement worth a great deal to the advancement of his ambitions The fact is that his announcement is without a tiIaw both in language and in evi dente of patriotism He states in substance that he claims no support by reason of service as Governor of Kentucky that the State is indebted to no one He asks for the nomination on the high plane which all along has characterized his efforts in seeking political honors and which has given him a tremendous hold on j1 i the goodwill and wishes of the I the rank and file in every nook and corner of the State The Democrats have long ago tired of unsavory methods used by politicians to gain an advantage and when the position of the Govern or is fully known to them it will warm up his friends and ad many new ones who are willin- g r to support and advance ambition backed and entrenched in honest 2open methods Below we reproduce his announcement which showsjin no unmistakable lan guage that true courage is a b powerful factor in the makup of the Governor and that he seeks only a fair square deal It is as follows To the Democrats of Kentucky You State Executive Committee has called primary election for November 6 t nominate candidate for United States Senator andl also for candidates for the State offices to be elected next year and I wish therefore to submit to you my candidacy for the nomination as Senator You are to be congratulated that your party committee has determined that all these contests should be de cided by a primary election and that the people themselves should have the op portunity by direct vote to select their candidates for these offices It is the fairest and mot satisfactory method of choosing party nominees it constitutes each voter his own slate maker and J gives everyicandidate the best possible chance to establish whatever claim he has beforefthe people The call forr this I primary was made five months before the election next November and surely fcat should be sufficient time for any espeTiHilly so when the season from now on is the most adaptable for such work I have always been in favor of the pri mary plan and I have never aspired to it public office that I did not prefer to submit my canadacy to the direct vote of the people Such is the case now 11and I hearth y endorsetheactionofyou committee in deciding that your nex J Senator shall be chosen by a fair and hone t primary My reliance and ippe are directly upon you I do not make tlelCMutful claim that the r DemooraticI party nwee me anything it owes w toany

work of theFecleral Senate That body has become thegreat battleground in the settlement of the important is A saes now before the people and of such deep consequence to their welfare If selected by the people of my State as one of her two representatives there I shall go there as a Democrat not only in name but also in principle with the sincere purpose upon broad and patri otic lines to serve my State and coun try hi such a way as to justify the trust you may repose in me I shall conduct my campaign for this nomination upon a plane worthy of the dignity of the high office and without any interference Whatever in other contests for office in that primary That some strong elements of opposition will fight me in am bush as well as the open I well know that in over six years service as Gov ernorjof the Commonwealth I have necessarially in the honest and fearless performance of my duties incurred the enmity and hostilityof many whose vaj riousjbatteries whether concealed or exposed will be directed at me in this contest is known to all Under some conditions the strength and power of this opposition might alarm me but as the result is to be determined by the vote of thepeople in the primary election I have no fears and shall gointo the cam paign with hope and confidence believing that whatever may be the result it will be the sovereign will of the people and if victorious by that will the victo ry will be all the more honorable if de feated then defeat without its sting or disappointment for every man who seeks public favor must learn to bow with grace and patriotism before the express will of the people To you therefore I submit my candidacy with the assurance that ifyou honor me with this high station I shall bring to the dis charge of its duties the same fidelity of purpose and devotion to duty with which I have always endeavored to meet my official duties Very resptfully J C W BECKHAM dThe bill providing for a lock canal was passed by the Senate last week and an appropriation of 25000000 was made to 1 u 3h the work There was a great effort made to bring about this legislation on the part of the President and shows his tremend ous power over our National Legislature In the face of the ad vice of the Canal Committee and engineersr Presia andowith threats of veto power and cojoling measures succeeded i securing the plans he desired I is not our purpose to state who is right for we are strangers to th true merits of the one over the other but the seemingly unlimit- e power the President exercises is sufficient to be alarming to the greatcommon people In the en tire history of our country no other Chief Executive has so thoroughly controlled the legisla tive department of our govern ment andno other has ever so thoroughly marked its metes and bounds Mr Roosevelt lids exercised his powers to a remark able degree performing in a fearless manner the rightful duties of his station and at the same time dictating to Congress in minuteI detail what should Jbe d what should be omittedNo amount of evidence against his judgment no number of able men tin concurrent opinion have led him from his fancies and persis tent determined

jfiJli T s jit s o j a i 1 k Nxi J to determine but it is a fact that the tendency and drift of such an increase of power le allfor otherwise vested in a President is not for the good of our free in stitutions and per petuation of American freedom This country wants a man of brain and willpower to fill its most exaulted station but it does not want a Czar it wants an unwaveringdis Greet man but not an eratic dic tatcriA President is not sup posed to be above the wholesome influence of wise council as is clearly the case with Mr Roose velt A man or any set of men who will seek to blend together the duties and privileges of coordinate branches of our govern ment are not inspired by as pure theithe sooner they retire the bet ter it will be for our govern politicalI much It looks like many mem bers of Congress have surrendered their sacred prerogatives in order to stand in The Republican Committee for- the Eleventh Congressional Dis trict met at Barbourville last Saturday for the purpose of fixing a date and manner of nominating a candidate for Congress There are nineteen counties i the district but only thirteen committeemen were present and a primary for Saturday August 18th

from Third page eyes And as every one of these ord hunters could hit a Squirrels head a hundred yards t you can rest assured that every shot fired either killed or wounded a British soldier What was the result of the battle Now I leave uncle Mike and go hack to history It only lasted 25 min utes The three leading generals and over two thousand soldiers were killed and wounded and the fourth general and the balance of theBritish retreated Jacksons army only lost seven men killed and six wounded This was one of the most de scisive battles in all history and had the most lasting and beneficial effect as the British who had ever been trampling upon our rights up to that time have never troubled us since To me the eighth day of January the anniversary Qf this battleJs next to the 4th day of July But I have detailed enough of Ken tucky heroism Suffice it to say that to the farmers and hunters of Kentucky and Tennessee be long the chief credit of whipping the British so badly that they have behaved for nearly a cen tury they now claim to be our best friends But nearly all I have said has been on the materiallplane of what Kentucky has done on the field of battle and in thacouncils of state I must make some brief reference to her progress in science philosophy mOrals and ethics Joseph Rodes Buchanan the greatest philosopher Ameri ca has produced was born in Kentucky edited the Journal of Man over fifty years ago found ed the Electic College in Cincin nati discovered the great science of Sarcognomy and Physcome try led the van in occult philoso phy in both the East and the West and finally gave the world his great work on Primitive Christianity The poet Pope has well said That the proper study of mankind i man And Buchanan has done more to develop the phi losophy of man than any writer living or dead The Apostle Paul in first Corinthians 15th Chapter tells us that there is a natural body and there is a spiritaul body Buchanan has taught the world that the spiritual body isthe real man that this physical body isa m remold in Which this spiritual body is formed and that when the physical is thrown off the spirit is more alive than ever That there is no death only a change to a higher and happier stateAnd to you fellow spirits who like myself yet linger t e flesh I wish to tender my sincere thanks for your attention today and to bid you an affectionate farewell as far as this earth is concerned There are few of us who will ever meet again on earth But itwill not be long until we will all meet face to face on the other side of the great

Why should not the Republicans also indorse Mr Bryan Where will the Republicans find candidate who is more closely in sympathy with Mr Roosevelts policies the World asks and continuing says Mr Bryan advocated Federal regulation of freight rates years before Mr Roosevelt dreamed of making it an Administration measure All of Mr Roosevelts trustbusting activities reveal a close and thoughtful study of Mr Bryans eloquent speeches Mr Bryan favors Federal licenses for corporations and has been one of the stanch supporters of Mr Roosevelts second Admin istration Like Mr Roosevelt he believes in the man with a patch on his breeches and is in favor of restricting fortunes swollen beyond all healthy limitsSome Republicans might pro test that Mr Bryans tariff views disqualify him for a Republican nomination but such criticism is specious Both Mr Bryan and Mr Roosevelt were ardent andJ freetraders in their ervish and undisciplined uth and both are now understood to favor a revis ion of the

of the new free alcohol legislation In my opinion said the Secretary this investigation should be thorough and include for instance a study of the potatoes grown in Maine Colorado and other States here white potatoes grow abundantly a study of the sweet potatoe and the yam the cassava and the coontie in the South a study of the sorghum plant through the central portions of our country a study of the stalk of Indian corn in practi cally all parts of the country and a study of the possibilities of pro ducing alcohol directly from the sugar beets in California Mich igan and other parts of the coun try where sugar beets grow in abundance Experimental work should be done toward adapting a small still to the use of localities Many farmers seem to think that the alcohol can be made up on the farm This is not practicable Wonderful things are predict ed from the new free alcohol legislation In Germany the con sumption of denatured alcohol in 19034 amounted to 73635294 proof gallons It has

thus it is all over ti county Many of these new a vocates of Bryan give as thei reason for now supporting him that he has changed and become more conservative Their own pride of opinion makes them say this Bryan has not changed as the country will find upon his return from his tour around the world He has not modified his opinions o n public questions Some conditions have changed some issues of ten years ago are now out of date others are to day more important but Bryan- is the same tribune of the plain eople the same uncompromis ing foe of plutocratic oppression- of the masses the same fearless anremedcourt of the United States who change their opinions over nihte the same Enemy of government by injunction of trusts of tariff robbers and corruption in elections that he was in 1896 The money
