small percentage of teachers from the magisterial districts met at the hospitable town fof Gradyville on Saturday October 12 The Baptist brethren of that place kindly opened the doors of their church for the more comfortable housing of the Association and after some 20 minutes of enjoyable music the Association was called to or der by the chairman Mr John Pickett Brother Robert Keltner led in prayer after which Miss Celeste Shirley gave the address of welcome the response to which was in the absence of Mr R L Campbell begun by Tobias Huffaker and finished by him after Mr Camp bells arrival Noon being arrived the Association adjourned for dinner At 1 oclock the work of the program was taken up and Tobias Huffaker discuss ed Grammar its importance a dhow to teach it Mrs ShirlVand R LR

value of Literature in self culture The question should third class certificates be abol ished was ably discussed by J A Caldwell Rhue Squires and others but was not definitely settled J A Cald 1 well gave an excellent short talk on how to cultivate the power of observation The subject of Reviews was briefly but well treated by Miss Bertna Hamilton and Miss Celeste Shirley A few words on dicipline was spoken by J A Cal wellJ and Tobias Huffker in the absence of the program speakers Mrs Shirley closed the discussions rpf the program with an excellent paper on the teacher sa moulder of moral character Supplemented by a few well timed remarks byR L Campbell The discussions of the program were varied and enlivened at intervals by de lightful recitations rendered by Misses Lethia Wilmore Nell Hindman Mabel Hindman and Celeste Shirley and a song rendered by Miss Mary Wilmore These recitations and the song were all splendidly rendered and were much appreciated by the audience The Din ner was superb mostof the teachers bringing their dinner with them but several of the kind hospitable people of Gradyville showed their appreciation of the Teachers Association by bring ing sumptious and bountiful repasts with them and inviting all to shareI The Association was a success though the attendance was not specially large What was lacking in quantity wasmade up in quality TOBIAS HUFFAKER Sec of Association A CARD I Editors of The New r t With all due appreciation of yourI kind mention of my sermons on The Kingdom of Heaven and Civil Goy ernraent 1 must say that your comment was too brief to give an adequate idea of my position on the tariff andI as there has been considerable discus sion since aboiJt it I ask for space in which to give the substance of my remarks on that topic Incidentally attention was drawn to the fact that the prjme difference Aibr tween the Democratic andtheRepubliI can parties in which the one contends for a tariff for revenue otdy and the other insists on avingigp ot tive tariff is only academic and cannot be realized in f Ht Even if the Preside i the Senate and the House off Rep resentatives were all Democrats and were to attempt to create aotarifffor 1 revenue only their every impost would operate as a protective tariff in the case of products the like of which is grown or manufactured in this coun try There has never been a time since the existence of this contention between these two parties when a tax on articles of Commerce not produced in this country would have given suffi cient revenue to support the Federal Government and now since we have cquired the Hawaiian Islands the Philipines and Porto Rico and are actually producing everything that is made or that grows under the sun a tari ffa that will not act as a protective tari is simply impossibleIHaving made this evident to every thoughtful person who heard the ad dress I undertook to show why a revision of the tariff is desirable In do ing so I recited some facts relative to certain imposts devised by the Colonial Council in a British cqlony showing how the members of the Council being wealthy proprietors of sugar estates and the like they imposedduties which enriched the aristocracy and impover ished the peasantry I stated that there are tariff laws in this country which operate in the same way and added that it is a hopeful sign of betterment when distinguished men in both the great parties seem anxious to re vise the tariff The main object of my discourse was to advocate a wholesome independence of party behests on the part of voters that competent men may be chosen for office who shall be able to cope with the real problems that confront us Yours truly W K AZBILL 4 After razing the old dwelling of N M Tuttsxa breastpin which is the

Misrepresen 1and Deception Are the Campaign Utterances of Former Governor Bradley Thus Says Governor Beckham In Notable Speech at Stanton The Democratic Chief Executive Does Not Mince Words In Dealing With His Predecessor Says His Charges Are as Reckless and Untruthful as In 1895 Campaign Tells Why Bradley Wont Discuss Goebel Assassination i Stanton Ky Oct 10 Declaring that the Republican state campaign is based upon falsehood and deception and that its chief exponent upon the stump former Governor W O Brad ley is guilty in his speeches of perversion of records and distortion of facts in a vain effort to cover up the weakness of his cause Governor Beck ham iIia speech to the voters here today handled his predecessor without gloves not mincing words in answer ing the charges which Badley is mak ing He denounced Bradleys utter ances as without a parallel for in accurary misrepresentation and deception Charges Completely Riddled Taking up the statements and charges made by the former governor the present chief executive riddled them completely showing in detail wherein they are either childish or deliberate misrepresentations and that the Republican method of ped dling slanders forgeries and false J C W BECKHAM Hoods is for the purpose If possible todivert the minds of the voters from the real facts He charged the ex governor with being the man most responsible for the temporary reign of the fugitive Taylor and declared that Bradley might have averted the great calamity the assassination of William Goebel who once did him a great favor if he had communicated vt6c him instead of to those later charged with complicity in that mon strous crime the fact that his life was being threatened by men brought- to Frankfort by Taylor Powers and othersThe Great Speech The speech of Governor Beckham dealing with the charges of former Governor Bradley and refuting them Is as follows In tils carefully prepared speech at Princeton on Sept 24th a which was t printed in the newspapers and in his subsequent speeches Governor Bradley shows the utter weakness of the t Republican cause in this campaign SIdi r rflu m eirucr cuniesses men mamuty to meet the real issues of it With a lame and futile satire he seeks to rid icule what he cannot answer He ignores many of the most important questions in the campaign and by art ful and ingenious deceptions undertakes to confuse the minds of the voters He does not hesitate to disregard facts pervert records and dis tort figures in his vain effort to cover up the weakness of his cause I shall show before I get through with him that he has not only stated things which were untrue but which he ahould have known fo be untrue His utterances in this campaign are as reckless and as untruthful as they were in the campaign of 1895 when with false charges and promises he deceived the people of Kentucky into electing him governor In that cam paign hoe slanderously charged the Democratic administration of the state with fraud and corruption and prom ised to the people that if elected gov ernor and his party placed in power when they could get a look at the books they would show up this fraud and corruption For over four years he and his had control of the stateDgovemment and of the public records and I repeat that they have never to this day reported the discov ery of a single act of fraud or corruption upon the part of previous Demo cratic administrations Pitiful and Childish But how does the distinguished ex governor when confronted with this answer to his charges in that campaign seek to escape it In his speech he says In 1896 when the Republicans went into office there was not enough money in the treasury to pay an expert bookkeeper to look at the books on account of Democratic indebtedness This is so pitiful and childish that no intelligent citizen will let him off with such an excuse He had under his own appointment a state inspector and examiner drawing 3000 a year and expenses with the right to employ assistants whose duty it was under the direction of the gov ernor to make such investigations of the books Why doesnt Governor Bradley own up like a man and confess to the truth that they did make this investigation into the books and utterly failed to find anything wrong His reference to the Tate matter is of no credit to him or to his party because that defalcation was discovered and exposed by a Democratic admin istration and Tates bondsmen forced to make good the loss to the state by Democratic officials before d3radley came into office The promises which he and his party made in that cam paign were equally as false and insin cere as were the charges Every intelligent citizen in Kentucky knows that the administration of the state under Bradley and Tay lor from January 1896 to February 1900 was full of mismanagement dis aster and crime It came into power under false pretenses and it went out of power in a carnival of lawlessness and assassination Mr Willson the Republican candidate for governor whose chief spokesman Governor Bradley is must stand upon that rec ord of hiS party and cannot expect to deceive the people again in this campaign as they did in 1895 The attempt of Governor Bradley in this speech to account for the grievous mismanagement of our finances during their administration is so weak and so poor that it deserves hardly any men tion at all In his printed speech there are three long columns taken up with a jumbled mass of figures so arranged as to confuse rather than to illuminate the subject An expert accountant could not reach any in telligent conclusion from such an ar rangement and it is clear that Gov ernor Bradley himself was lost in the statistical maze of his own figures He cannot repudiate his responsibility for Taylor and Taylors administra tion No man was more responsible for Taylors temporary power than Bradley was he was chief counsel and adviser while Taylor was acting governor He was in Frankfort all the time and was Taylors leading attorney in the contest cases His own administration was bad enough but he and his party cannot escape the added evil of Taylors administration Even if we should grant his request to hold them responsible only to the end of his administration in January 1900 the comparison with Democratic administration would be altogether in our favor Charge Falls to the Ground He states that while Taylor was governor there was a dual government In the state and that the Democrats as well as the Republicans were expend ing the states money That isnot true I was sworn in as governor on February 3rd The other Democratic officials were not sworn in until Feb ruary 26th and it was long after that before we paid out a cent of the states money So his charge that we were responsible for any of the reckless expenditures under Taylor falls to the ground It is not supported by the records or facts and nobpdy knows better than Governor Bradley the truth about it He knows too that the Democratic administration after ward had to nay off tha arrester Dart l ww oApMaes ror Taylors lawless soldiery as well as their debts in curred during that disastrous administration According to his figures the state was in debt above its assets when he assumed office 1421498 If we take his figuresand no one will believe that he has understated the amount the records show that they left the financial affairs of the state Infinitely worse than they found them notwithstanding that his administra tion increased the tax rate from 421 cents to 523 cents on 100 and dou bled the bonded debt of the state by borrowing 500000 The records show that when the Democrats took charge in February 1900 the state was in debt above its assets 169965736 and according to his own figures it shows that they left the state with a debt of 27765936 larger than the debt which he says existed when he came into office These are the cQld plain facts from which he cannot escape which are clear to the simplest mind and which he tries to dodge by print ing three newspaper columns of in accurate figures to confuse the minds of the voters He knows that the Democratic ad ministration has wiped out the entire debt of thestate which It found at the conclusion of the Republican ad ministration and yet he states in this printed speech that the state is now in debt and further he says if the present administration has increased the taxes for general purposes In creased the value of property and still increases our debts it will if continued in office land Kentucky in Heil eventuallyWhy the distinguished ex governor deliberately make a statement that he and every other intelli gent citizen in Kentucky knows to lie untrue Doesnt a subject of this Importance deserve fair and honest treat ment Have not the people at least a right to expect that a man who had once held the exalted office of gov ernor should tell the truth about these things Doesnt he give our people credit for more intelligence than to think it possible for him and the other Republican candidates to deceive them like he and Mr Willson deceiv ed them in 1895 State Entirely Out of Debt Not only is the state entirely out of debt but with all of the money that the administration has expended for Its public institutions its schools col leges and its new capitol and other worthy improvements we will have in our treasury at the close of this ad ministration the first of next January the splendid surplus of 1250000 1 know that a superb showing like that is discomforting to Governor Bradley and the other Republican candidates They cannot answer it They cannot by jugglery of figures escape it But it certainly does not justify them in deliberate misrepresentations and the peddling of slanders forgeries and falsehoods to divert if possible the minds of the people from the real factsHe states in his speech that this administration had only appropriated 198778921 while we state that a larger amount has been appropriated for worthy purposes 41f the gentle man will look on Page 21 of the Democratic campaign handbook a copy of which I presume he has he will find a list of thfe items showing for what purposeseach appropriation was made amounting to 270106207 all of which will have been paid by the close of this administration and yet leave a surplus in the treasury as above stated This list is taken from the records and it will be easy for him to verify it if he wants to know the truth about it He says in his speech the Republican administra tion was not only economical did not only pay off Democratic indebtedness but it did many other worthy things In Conflict With the Truth In the light of the facts which I have stated and which cannot be disputed I submit to the intelligent vot ers this marvelous statement of the or Of the many worthy things accomplished during his ad ministration the only thing that he at tempts to show is the establishment of the House of Reform I shall quote his exact words about that wonderful achievement for which he claims credit and then quote Section 252 of the constitution of the state and let the voters pass an opinion for them selves upon the veracity of the ex governor Here is what he said For nearly 100 years Kentucky failed to erect any house of reform but suf fered children convicted of crime to be associated in the penitentiary with old and hardened criminals It re mained for a Republican governor to denounce this outrage and urge the building of such an institutionandt- his was accomplished during his ad ministration The new constitution of Kentucky was adopted in 1891 and here is Section 252 It shall be the duty of the general assembly to pro vide by law as soon as practicable for the establishment and maintenance of an institution or institutions for the detention correction instruction and reformation of all persons under the age of eighteen years convicted of such felonies and such misdemean rt S I ors as may be designated by taw Said institution shall be known as the House of Reform The Democratic general assembly of 1898 when I was speaker of the house of representa tives passed this law providing for the establishment of the House of Reform The Republican general as sembly of 189697 had nothing to do with it It is evident therefore that his statement which I have quoted Is not only in conflict with the truth but with the constitution and laws of the commonwealthWillful I shall refer to another deliberate and willful misrepresentation of his in which he states that I had held the Republican administration responsible for the entire 1000000 of bonded in debtedness which we found against the state in February 1900 I did nothing of the kind for in my open ing speech and others I have stated that when the Republican administra tion borrowed 500000 they thereby doubled the bonded debt of the state which of course to any sensible man means that there was al ready a bonded debt of 500000 when the Republicans doubled it Governor Bradley read my opening speech as his speech shows and said that I expr ssed it in that way He charges that we have been collecting more taxes from the railroads than he did while he was governor That is true and we are glad that he has called attention to it He says that under his administration the franchise valuation placed on the railroads for taxation was an average of 11329 34900 while under the Democratic ad ministration the average has been 22921478 No one has complained that we have made the railroads pay sxorbitant taxes for they have pros pered more than ever before under Democratic administration but we have compelled them to pay upon a fair valuation of their property From his figures it appears that we have doubled the valuation upon them since his administration The tax atI 50 cents on this difference would beI 57960 which multiplied by 8 gives 463680 more collected in taxes from this one source in the eight years of or administration than would have been collected under the valuation of the Republican administration That Increase alone is enough to pay for onethird of the cost of our new cap itol This is one of the things which goes to explain how the Democrats with a less tax rate than the Republi cans have been able to do Iso much for the upbuilding of the state institu tions The records show that in 1899 the last year of Republican administra tion there were only seven railroads assessed in the state for taxation while in 1906 under Democratic ad ministration there were nineteen rail roads assessed for taxation There has been much development of rail road business in the state under Dem ocratic administration and some few lines built but not enough to make up- the wide difference between 7 and 19 The Democratic general assembly of 1898 passed the McChord railroad rate bill a measure of vast interest to our people but Governor Bradley vetoed that measure and delayed its passage until 1900 when I became governor and signed it Under that law our people have been saved thousands and eXJtortIonatenot surprising therefore that the Republican governor who vetoed that I measure could find only seven railroad t corporations in the state to tax Tho Democratic administration has been fair and to the railroads and encouraged their progress andrdevelopment in the state but It has also insisted that they shall bear their just portion of taxation and be fair and reasonable in their dealings with the people The Cause of Governor Bradley says nothing at all about the schools and the cause of education because he knows that noth ing was done for them during his and Taylors administrations He knows the vast good done for them under Democratic administration and there fore ignores the subject He does not even attempt to explain the flagrant action of his administration in the year 1899 in padding the school fundI and increasing the school per capita to 270 for Its effect upon the cam paign of that year Nor does he an swer the charge that this inexcusable attempt for campaign material caused a deficit the following year of 147000 in the school fund which the Democratic administration had to make good and caused the per capita that year to fall to 245 The Democratic administration has raised it from 245 to 340 It has increased the school term from five months to six months of free tuition throughout the commonwealth It has established two normal schools for our teachers It has given generously to the State College and to the State Colored Nor mal School It has passed the schoolbook r bill in the face of his and his partys opposition that gives to the school children of the state their school books at onethird less than they formerly paid In the face of Republican promises which can never be relied upon it presents facts like theseHe complains that we have no platform The record of the Democratic administration is a sufficient platform and the people consider it far preferable j to the vain promises in the Re publican platform Their with the Bradley and Taylor adminis trations has taught them that RepubI lican platform promises are not worth the paper they are written on By a jugglery of figures he tries to show that the cost of public printing under his administration was less than It has been under Democratic admin istrat n He states what the records prove to bE untrue for those records show that under Democratic adminis tration there has been a much greater amount of public printing done than under the Republican administration and at 256791 less cost per year He also says and I quote his words Why did the party they claim to rep resent decline to make an appropria tion to advance the interest of Kentucky at

general assembly ol 1904 of 75000 for an ext hibit at the St Louis exposition and E everybody knows who visited that C exposition that Kentucky was one of the best represented states there FactsLL It is impossible with the limitations of time upon this address to recite V all the barefaced and brazen distorn V tions of facts and perversions of fig hisia deceptionTLong as is that speech there is a conspicuous absence of any reference iC to the collection of the civil war hamthe distinguished exgovernor nothing matter1Lcame up C and also in mine His associate can didates have tried to make some cap italout of the fee paid Capt Calhoun for that work The amount collected was 1324400 and Capt Calhouns fee was a little over 71000 or a thenfee paid by any state in the Union for similar collections Gov Bradley knew of the existence of this V claim because he approved vouchers for 57500 for expenses for having it w investigated In a letter signed by his assistant adjutantgeneral whom ifi he appointed that official says 1 Iyin the New York case and I at once set about to qr enforce the collection of the claim of Kentucky and for the purpose went andaa convinced me that Kentucky could re cover something near one hundred thousand dollars I came back lo Frankfort and laid the whole matter before the governor and it seemed little faith was placed by the state administration in the success of pros ecuting the claim and the governor and auditor decided that they would not advance expenses etc and the matter was dropped as I dilnot feel justified in advancing my own mone I had no doubt if I had done so I could have received a contingent fee of 25 per cent if I had taken the risk of collections If such a contract had been made by Gov Bradley and the same amount had been collected then the fee for itscollection would have been 330 000 instead of 71000 But nothing further was done by that administra tion toward the collection of this money and when I came into office I employed Capt Calhoun to collect It After that employment the dis tinguished exgovernor who had failed in his duty in the matter as governor sought to get employment with Capt Calhoun and secure a part of the fee He wrote the following letter to Cal houn February 19th 1902 Dear CaptalnI notice that a bill C has been passed authorizing the em ployment of counsel in collection of Kentucky war claim- Iu write merely to suggest that I might be of some assistance and will thank you if you see fit to make some suggestions concerning the mat ter Your friend C Signed W O BRADLEY C Facts Speak for Themselves These facts speak for themselves and it Is not necessary to aid anyone L in forming a sensible conclusion about them After his dereliction of duty as governor in regard to this importantL matter he sought to make amends by an attempt to divide the fee for collection with Capt Calhoun And yet he boasts of the many worthy things and the splendid financial achiev men 3of his administration He un dertakes to justify his action in the election of 1899his use of the mili tary then and at other timesbut his tory has stamped with itsvigorou3I disapproval those acts of his and hisI usurpations of power No excuse whatever can be given for what he did and time cannot Wipe out the disgraceful blot of his unwarranted action in those matters He says that Goebel and the Democratic ticket were not elected Tie general assemhl of tie state said that they were The courts from the circuit court of the state to the supreme court of the United States vindited that decision of the general assembly Ik the elec tion of 1900 when I was tfcb candidate of the Democratic party to fill out Gov Goebels unexpired ttefta the Republicans made that queatioa an issue la the campaign They jbfdia corrup tion fund furnished by the National Republican Cq nmittee ot F01 OOO to l defeat the Democratic ticket ana yer the people in that election Indorsed the decision of their general assem bly by electing me with nearly 4000 majority They further indorsed that action in the election of 1903 by electing our state ticket with nearly 27000 majority That question has been set tIed by every possible earthly tribunal settled in every instance in our favor He has the hardihood to boast of his action in using the militia at the polls in 1899 and yet he could not spend his remaining years with better grace than in the continual effort to apologize to the people for that crime against free elections and that blow at civil liberty He spoils his argument by undertaking to refer to the election of 1905 in the city of Louis ville which was declared void by the court of appeals last spring The his tory of that case shows that remedies for fraudulent elections may be foiinl in our courts and not by the use of military at the polls His reference to that case was most unfortunate for there it was shown that a Democratic court would remedy such evils even where Democratic officials should lose their places and in the opinion of heldthatwould invalidate an election His attempt to make fun of the election in he Bailys Mill precinct In Franklin county where it is claimed there were 104 votes fraudulently counted for the Democratic tickets amounts to little The Democratic party condemns fraud in elections and when this matter was brought to light a Democratic court and a Democratic grand jury promptly indicted the guil ty partiesOne does not justify another and yet it would be possible if worthwhile to show in that same election where far greater frauds especially in some of the Republican counties were committed against the Democratic ticket Might Have Averted Calamity When he undertakes to repudiate Taylor and his administration we confront him with his own bad record at that time No man in Frankfort during those dark days did more to stir up the angry passions of the mob and bring about lawlessness and crime than did Governor Bradley the friend and attorney of Taylor In his violent and inflammatory utterances In his sworn testimony as a witness in one of the Goebel assassination cases he admitted that he had been In formed several times of the plot to murder William Goebel and yet al though Goebel had once signally be friended him he failed to go and warn him of his danger He cannot excuse his failure to do so by saying that two or three of the fellows who were in the plot came and told him there was nothing in it He cannot excuse it now by denouncing that as sassination as an infamous outrage With the information which he receiv ed and which subsequent developments have shown to be correct he might have averted that calamity and saved the life of the man who had once done him such a great favor He was in the convention his friend Mr Willson and other Republican candidates were in that same Republican convention which indorsed without reserve the resolute and patri otic conduct of W S Taylor He bewails the fact that Democratic leaders in this campaign refer at all to the events of that dark and bloody period We Democrats regret that It is necessary to refer to them but we would be recreant to our duty to the people if we failed to call attention to these matters that happened less than eight years ago and which illustrate more thin words can picture the character and results of Re publican administration in this state I state a fact that every citizen knows to be true that the period from De cember 1295 when Bradley became governor to February 1900 when Taylor was unseated was the blackest and gloomiest In the history of the state with the possible exception of the Civil war Tie record of that ad ministration is as barren as a desert There was not a single good deed in it nor a single event that marked advancement and progress for our people From the gloom of such a disastrous record it is natural that these Republican candidates should turn in disnay and seek by a resur rection of exploded slanders forgeries and falsehoods to mislead the minds the people and prevent them from considering the real issues of the campaign If time would permit mo I could show in many instances where the candidates of the Republican state ticket including Mr Willson have pursued the same policy as Governor Bradley did in this speech and have deliberately misrepresented the facts and stated things which they knew fo be untrue In my campaign from one end of the state to the other I have been amazed at the extent to which some of these men have gone In their perversion of facts The Temperance Question Goyernor Bradley In his speech tries to belittle the temperamce ques tion In this contest and says probably the people at large Tjouid have more commence in me professions or Beckham and Hager If they could show any act in favor of temperarce k during their official career That means that the exgovernor states that nothing has been done for the tem perance cause during this administra tion The record of the laws passed and enforced by us is a complete ref utation of this statement There is no fairminded nonpartisan temperance advocate In Kentucky who does not say that under this administra tion and with its assistance Kentucky has obtained some of the wisest and best temperance laws that can be found in any state in the Union These facts are so well known to our people that it is unnecessary to ad duce further proof to show the falsity of his statement Judge Hager and the Democratic candidates can point to the record of the Democratic admin istration upon this question as a guar antee of their sincerity and position on it There is nothing plainer in this campaign than the effort of Mr Will son to dodge or straddle this ques tion They cannot attack our posi tion by the use of slander and cal umny The bitterness and unfairness of the distinguished exgovernor toward us can be accounted for to some extent by the fact that much of this temperance legislation which we have passed is distasteful to some of his best clients Consequently when he discusses this issue in the cam pIsthe Republican ticket But he should not allow his earnestness as an attorney to cause him to lose his temper and provoke him to make such vicious and unwarranted attacks upon us The Democratic party has no t apologies to make for its record upon this question and confidently trusts that the people of the state will not be misled by the character of cam paign waged upon its candidates by Governor Bradley and his satellites The issue is so clear that those who run may read It is a choice between the policies of the BradleyTaylor ad ministration for which Mr Willson stands and the policies of the Democratic administration represented by Judge Hager and his ticket No sen sible patriotic or intelligent citizen can hesitate in such a choice The campaign is now more than half over I have been in every part of the state and it Is my candid opinion from what I have seen and heard that the Demo cratic ticket will Nov 5 be elected by an overwhelming majority The peo pIe of Kentucky love fair play anC condemn hypocrisy They are deter mined that a ticket like the Republi can ticket which bases its campaign upon false ood and deception shall not succeed in this glorious old com monwealth COMMISSIONERS SALBV ADAIR CIRCUIT COURT Of KENTUCKY Ben T Evans Etc Plaintiff Wm H Evans Etc

Hope is the bright star that illumines our life It is the ray of light that leads us on and J without it our life would be darkness Hope is that element of mind that ever keeps us reaching out andup for brighter better and more abiding life it is that hieh keeps us from despair like a guardian angel ever whispering of better things and greater joy Hope is one of the sweetest things in the world making the life so sunny and bright and when rightly directed it becomes a great power for good for it i contagious and when it enters a sickroom or comes in contact with a sorrowing heart or a mind I despairing and fearful it is a burden lifter for burdens are but shadows cast like ax cloud over the mind and hope is sunshine blessed invigations rays many a life has been transformed by the entrance of hope Open your mind to its sweet uplifting influence Welcome it with love and it will come and fill your heart it will make your very presence to radiate blessings to all without any effort on your part and the greatest good is done when there is least effort but because the heart is overflowing with truth and love The greatest hope in the world is for Christlife to be revealed in us This is to be so free from the lower self that the higest maybe revealed We can at least have this for our ideal througn it may seem a long way off still it is not so very far from earth to heaven The pure in heart see God heaven is a pure consciousnessa beholding all things good it is a new consciousness of life that is ours after the Christsmind and in it all hopes are attained for it is the finding of the kingdom of heaven within If this one hope should become the allabsorbing hope of your life you would not find it so very farto heaven to that inward place and unity with the Spirit of life and

out a parallel In June 1906 the Congress of the United States passed what is known as the en abling act giving the people of Okla and Ind Ter power to elect deligates to a Constitutional Convention Said Convention was Constiturbeing referred to the people if ratified by them should then be sent to the Pres ident of the United States who hadaccording to the terms of the enabling act twenty days to approve or reject it The result of this election was the greatest surprise to both Democrats and Republicans in all political histo ry it being conceded by both parties prior to the election that it would be close between Dem ocrats and Republicans But out of 112 delegates 99 were Dem ocrats 1 Independent and 11 Re publicans consequently the or panic law of this new State is Democratic and contains all the modern Democratic reform theo ries the most conspicuous being the Initiative and the Referendum It provides for compulsory education it prohibits the suspension at any time of the Writ of Habeas Corpus it pro vides for separate schools for ne- groes and whites places the civil law at all times above the mil I itary provides that twothirds of a jury may find bills or convict except in murder cases restrict the granting of franchises for a longer period than twentyfive years provides ample laws to protect the people against the reed and avarice of co orations but offers ample encouragement for legitimate capital prohibits the ownership of land by other than residents of the State also for Statewide prohi bitionThe people ratified the Constitution by a majority of over 80 000 Notwithstanding the Repub titans fought it to the bitter end the State went Democratic by 40000 Four Democratic Con gressmen out of five were elected the one lone Republican being elected
