I j fV bM1 uuitO c f VOLUME 10 COLUMBIA ADAIR COUNTY KENTUCKY WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 21 1906 NUMBER 2 I RUNAWAY Last Friday morning as Mr Clint Smith an employe of Pile and Brown ing liverymen of this city was drive ing a double team out the Crocus road one of the horses stumbled falling to the ground In his fall he broke the swingletree and fell far enough in front to dislodge the breastyoke completely loosing himself from the vehicle The other animal became frightened and soon both got away from Mr Smith and ran for a distance of nearly a mile One of the horses run the yoke into its breast several inches which made a bad wound Fortunately they had detached them selves from the surrey and it was not hurt STIR EM UP We suggest that the Adair Farmers Club get up some money an offer premiums for the best acre of corn oats and other products for next year and by this means stimulate some who will probably be indifferent other ssgse TJbefact is that if 12 men could be induced to enter the contest on corn there would be 12 acres put in the high est state of cultivation best seed use and best cultivation There would be 12 men to testify next fall and show the result of good methods Likewise on another grain Keep the interest a the highest point for good results offer good premiums FROM REV F E LEWIS GREENVILLE KyNov16 1906 Editor News- I enclose 100 to pay arrearage on

Nominating Col Frank L Wolford r for Clerk of the Court of Appeals We reproduce the speech of Col r Thomas P Hill of Stanford which was delivered in the Democratic State Convention at Frankfort Ky on Jan uary 12th 1882 presenting the name of Col Frank L Wolford to the Convention as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Clerk of the Court of AppealsMr ChairmanI am directed by Lincoln county to present to this con vention the name of Col Frank L Wol ford of Adair I will not say that re publics are ungrateful for I do not be lieve it but I fear they are sometimes forgetful Will this convention bear with me a very few minutes while I endeavor to recall to your minds a few of the many heroic titles which this gallant and able man has won to the respect of his country and to the grat itude of his party r Many of us here perhaps the most of us remember the condition of the Dem ocratic party of Kentucky in the year 1864 It was a memorable era to the history of that party Disheartened i divided sundered it was without leaders without organization and without hope The war was then in progress and State and martial laws and thet Writ of Habeas Corpus suspended The courts were closed the laws were mute and property personal liberty and life were held at the will of the military chief tan A hostile and licen tious soldiery strangers to our soil covered the State and hedged about ev ery po with their bayonets The Democratic party was and had long been in a minority in the State The Union men of Kentucky the Union ofIlaiiu chaos or tile times tile path of du ty and of patriotism had not yet been made plain to them They wavered and hesitated Never in the history of Kentucky was there a darker or more portentous day At that crucial hour at that supreme moment of suspense and peril the Kentucky Democracy handed to Frank Wolford the banner of Constitutional liberty the flag of Jefferson their flags It carried with it then no easilywon honors it led to no fat preferments then Withno hope of reward but with full knowl edge of the peril and the odium he in curred he took up that banner that glorious ensign of liberty and law How proudly how faithfully how fear camtfl paign I need not pause to tell By the rivers banks on the mountain tops In hamlet dae and glen the eloquent and solitary voice of Wolford was heard for free thought free speech a free press free men and for that great writ which is the chart of liberty wherever over the earth the Saxon race may be found He was arrested and thrown in a filthy dungeon at Covington by the cowardly butcher who then ruled over Kentucky On being released by the influence of the Kentucky Senators in t Congress he was again arrested an carried in chains to Washington City and threatened with courtmartial and an infamous death But no chain- could fetter tnat daring spirit no dun eloquengeons t r f rf tongue Like one of those gnarled and sturdy oaks which crown with shade his native mountain home he stood un bent before the storm and bade defi ance to its fury and when the storm had passed and the conflict was ended Wolford and our party were the vic tors He had won to the party of Jefferson the Union soldiery of Kentucky and the flower of that party which held to the preservation of the Union he had saved us from the anarchy which shortly after befell our sister States of the border he had established once for all the supremacy of the Democratic party in Kentucky and given to it that decisive majority which it holds with iron grasp to this day One other bit of history Mr Chair man and I have done It was in 1865 and the war was ended Many thous ands of the flower of our youth had joined the standard of the South and had followed it to the end with un equaled valor and devotion Bereft of all save honor the worn and battle scarredsurvivors had returned to their homes They returned to find themselves expatriated disfranchised and reduced to the political level of the negro Deprived of their country by solemn act of that countrys Legisla ture they found themselves strangers at their own hearthstones aliens to their wives to the children of their loins and to the graves of their fathers The Legislature of 1865 was in session in this city and in that body sat Col Wolford as the member from Casey and Russell Davis of Bour bon the young son of the great Kentucky Senator had brought forward aI bill to repeal these expatriation laws The bill had been opposed in a great speech by the leader of the House who was justly regarded as one of the finest orators of his day and it was believed that a large majority of the Legisla ture was opposed to the policy of re storing the Confederates to their rights It was thought the bill would be defeated and trepidation and fear hung like a cloud over the proudest homes of Kentucky But it was also known that Wolford favored the bill and would make the closing speech in its favor It was known that the most splendid soldier Kentucky had furnished to the Union cause would speak for the men whom he had so often faced in the perilous edge of battle and at whose hands he had received the honor able and unhealed wounds he still bore upon his person The day came It was a cold day in December The Representative chamber was filled from base to dome It was a noble audience the like of which has seldom been gathered in Kentucky The noblest of her matrons whose sons were outcasts un der this law the most beautiful of her maidens whose brothers and lovers were under the ban of this law were there in the full splendor of that beau ty which not even the terror of that day could dim or lesson In that au dience sat the expatriated sons of Crit tenden and Marshall and Breckenridge and Claynames that had carried the fame of Kentucky around the world as the home of eloquence of courage and of genius Her beauty her genius her manhood her worth were all there anxious silent foreboding In the midst of that pageant sat the rugged cendand support himself by his desk be the oration which will long be re andseffecting to which those walls had ever resounded The Southern soldiers were t1 the children of Kentuckythe common mother of us allthey were his broth ers they were entitlednot by grace but by heritage and by right to every privilege which he enjoyed For hours he dwelt upon this grand theme For hours he thrilled and swayed the bosoms of that audience as the storm king sways the bosom of the ocean It was indeed a storm in which the speak ers gavel and threats of clearing the hall were unnoticed and unheard It was in truth a whirlwind of elo quence and patriotism which again and again swept to their feet that vast au dience in a tempest of plaudits and tears and which swept forever from the statute books every vestige of the laws which had restricted the rights or stigmatized the honor of the Southern Kentucky soldier And so having by the arts of the statesman and orator won the Uuion soldier into the Dem ocratic fold he now finished the great work of reconciliation and peace by throwing wide open to the Confederates the doors of the same sanctuary lawIbetweenIsoldieryIof Kentucky I well remember the profound sensa speechImade throughout the Commonwealth It was talked of by every fireside By each fireside it was remembered too ColIWolford who had written to President Lincoln the celebrated letter on the conduct of the war dated July the 30th 1864a letter worthy of the pen of Jefferson a letter which breathed in every line the same grand spirit that has served and sanctified the cause of liberty in all lands and in all ages It was the spirit that dictated the Decla thatIhearts and nerved their arms in the seven years war for independence wasImen of Lexington had publicly tender ed a costly sword and spurs and that because the presentation speech was a savage plea for conquest confiscation and plunder he had with heroic disdain refused to accept their gifts It was remembered too and told around many a blazing hearthstone in old Kentucky how this same Wolford while commanding a division of the Federalarmy at Knoxville in 1864 was commanded by his superior officer to detail his own regiment of Kentuckians to seize Rebel property and recruit a battery of negro soldiers and how he wrote upon theI back of that order the words I hope a grateful State will one day engrave upon his monument I joined the ar my to fight the men of the Southnot to rob the women and children Is it possible Mr Chairman that we can forget now what we remembered so well and so gratefully then Can we refuse to rescue this man from the obscurity and the honorable but grievous poverty to which his modesty and wounds have for years con signed him Can we oh honest stew ards ofa just and honest party oh generous men of Kentucky can we re fuse the tardy recognition hd asks at our hands Can we deny him a posi tion which he will honor and adorn an which will gild the evening of his life with the thought that his part and his people are neither ungrateful nor forgetful I trust not I hope not I believe not t PIaningMiiICoColumbia Keeps constantly on hand all

as second lass mail matter r WED MY 21 1906 The President has again stated that he would not accept a nom ination for the third term This statement ought to silence the third termers and take Mr Roosevelt out of the list of prob abilities and possibilities We have never believed that he would take the chances for the third term It would be a dan 1 gerous precedent for him or his party tp establish and personally dangerous to him as a distin guished and honored President of a great country for should he accept and be defeated his greatness already a matter of history would be darkened the fact is that no really true and great Statesman afford to become a tool in the hands of any political organization for the purpose of satisfying extreme personal or political admirers and enthusiasts and establish a prec fedent inimical to the best inter est of our form of Government Republicans will be forced to look to some other individual to steer the old canoe Vice President Fairbanks stands well with many but his political associates in the Hoosier State dont seem to be wedded to the Stanpat theory nor really cemented to the Roose welt prosperity propaganda The greatest

LindsayWilson They would come to join us in schools and enterprise and would not tarry on the way A Graded Public School would not cripple either institution we now have but would place each of them on a higher plane of educational work and their influence and patronage would extend over broader fields The Graded Public School means more to the business interest of Columbia than many It must come
