the South on Foot Carlisle Holmes who gave his address as Grandledge Mich presented a most pitiful sight Wednesday evening when her notified the officers here that he had been waylaid and robbed near Sloans Valley a station on the Q C Railroad about twelve miles from Somerset by two young men who approached him from behind and struck him a heavy blow on the head knocking him unconcious His clothes were torn almost offwhen he recovered his senses and six dollars in money was missing besides a large quantity of valuable papers The attack took place just this side of the tunnel at Sloans Valley Holmes was picked up by two pedestrians and helped to the station where the fast train was stoped by orders of Superintendent Cald well to bring him to Somerset where medical attention could be furnished He was very weak I from the loss of blood but revived sufficiently to relate a r f terrible story of the affair after his wounds were dressed by Dr Reddish Holmes is a native of Michigan having a wife and one child at Grandledge He has a son at Oakland California and desiring to see the picturesque country in Southren Kentucky and Tennessee before going west he started out on foot several weeks ago to travel through the South He carried a small tent and hammock with him with which he sheltered himself at night and procured rest He had permission to ride on freight trains along this road and covered much of the distance be tween Cincinnati and this city that way He had a camera with which he takes views of the country through which he travels He appears to be a highly educated man and claims to be writing feature stories for Michigan papers on his travels through this part of the country He had a terrible wound in his head where he was struck by a blunt instrument and his clothes were covered with blood The affair happened about 5 oclock Wednesday afternoon The officers were given a good description of the men and Holmes is still here awaiting their work as he claims he can easily identify them His wife and daughter at Grandledge have been apprised of his con dition Holmes came to this city from Danville where he took several views of that picturesque xpld town SomerSet Times P PROHIBITION IS ISSUE probltion is the only issue in the South The entire population jis now lined up on one side or the other There is no distinct pro hibitionparty but both of the old parties have put planks in their platforms advocating the abolition of the liquor traffic and at local elections the members of both are found voting for and against local option and prohibition v In Alabama a law has recently been passed authorizing each county to vote on the liquor question and a large majority of the counties have already voted for preIdicted that the next legislature will pass a general prohibition law In Arkansas a similar law pre vails and sixty out of seventy eight counties have adopted pro hibition In Florida thirty ont of forty five counties have suppressed all saloons and the DemocratIc party has declared for prohibi tion This means the adoption of a general prohibition law al the next session of the legisla ture In Kentuckymirabile dictu the sale of liquor is prohibited in all but four of the 110 counties of the state and even ir those every saloon is closed on SundayI In Louisiana seven eights of the counties are ry and there is a law prohibiting what are called jug trains Before this law was passed accommodation trains used to run from cities and towns where liquor was sold into ffye dry counties on Saturday so that thirsty citizens could buy a supply for Sunday Mississippi has had countyr local option for several years and in sixtyeight out of seven tyfive counties there are laws prohibiting not only the sale of liquor but it must not be given away A man may be sent to jail for inviting a visitor to take a drink with him in his own house This law is habitually evaded by placing the bottle and the glasses on the sideboard or the mantelpiece where the vis itors can help themselves South Carolina has recently re pealed the dispensary law and adopted county option instead and it is expected that a general prohibition law will be passed at the next session of the legislature Georgia has a general prohibi tion law and the sale of liquor- is absolutely prohibited throughout that state In Tennessee liquor is sold in but three counties Its sale is absolutely prohibited everywhere else and the members of the next legislature from other parts of the state will probably wipe out those wet spots at the next session In Texas twothirds of the counties have adopted absolute prohibition and have made it unlawful to give away as well as to sell liquor as in Mississippi Prohibition is the principal issue of the campaign now in progress Oklahoma like Georgia has passed a general prohibitory law West Virginia has abolished the liquor traffic in thirty out of iftyfive counties and prohibi tion is likely to be an issue in the next campaign Prohibition has not made much headway in the State of Virginia J tI t so far but the sentiment is growing and the epidemic is likely to spread over the bounda ries of

getting along in years now said former Lieutenant Gov W P Thome at the Seel bach I have been in politics all my life and I have stumped every county in the State but I want to tell right here of a sign when ever any political party sees it that party had better prep re for defeat because its coming sure A good many speakers talk about speaking to a crowd which was silent and gave him close attention Thats what all our Democratic speakers in the last campaign toy me I said Boys look out The hoodoo sign is out- Dont give me these silent folks to vote for me Whenever a lot of people attend a political meeting and sit up before you like so many pieces of marble or bisque figures and look you right straight in the eye and never take their eyes away from you its Katie bar the door They mean business but are go ing to transact it for the other fellow Everywhere Beckham Hager and all of our good Dem ocrats went this year they metI up with whole passels of these silent folks and you see what they did to us Willson had crowds that cheered him whether he said anything or not and this sign is a pointer for young men in politics Watch em and if they never take their eyes off the

backward view rejoice in the brightness of the future and move on in the business world as if nothing unpleasant had happened Itfis thet history of ourJcountry it is the natural orcjer of things that we have the good the bad the pleasant and thedisagreeable in every phase of our business ex istence Booming prosperity can not be in evidence all the while neither will the opposite take eternal mpossession We have had an unprecedented era of progress and speculation hast been the means of advancing prices itt many instances be conI ditions can not go on unchecked and it seems that the limit has been reached and surer and saft er methods employed After a t areful study of the situation we can not see any reason to Justify any one in the belief that a disastriousspanic is for ing Con ditions are materially different now to what they were in 1890 and 1896 the period known as the Cleveland panic A few years before that all kinds of business had been exceedingly good and the three years preceeding it a wave of unprecedented specula tion swept over the entire Southern States culminating in dis aster to all who participated and all who backed up the thousands by wildcat schemes that bursted like so many bubbles The fact is that millions of dollars were invested in nbnproducing properties of every description but town buildingthe making of modern cities in dense wood lands ruged mountains and bar ren plainsmostly of blue prints attracted more people and more money than any other one thing wholely unsustained by merit or real values The limit was reach ed the crash came the panic Was the fruit Thirtythree by one hugdren and thirtytwo feet of dirt on a steep hillside or in an old old worn out field was worthless The banks backed i such business and when their se curities showed up to be in realk ty a lot in the broadexpanse of nothing they failed and the fail tires were as rapid and extensive 4as the rottenessof their opera JOition5 To day thor situation is I different Weha e hadr H4 pus times it is true but have 4 not had the wildGat kind pf 3 speculation Uikep the peu dfj t above referred toIconsequently carinot have tjie failures anda f I r like depression For the last five years speculation has largely been confined to property that can not lose its value for in theI main it has been in farm substantial developments of properties yielding what the world must have Jfa the great financial centers the gamblers einrun a reckless c 1seo and it is there that the panic has formed itsaorigin That such conditions are not desirable can not be denied erzodandseems probable throughout the country no one seems to doubt but there is no evidence to warrant a belief that real distressing conditions will result There is plenty of money in the country bountiful crops and the balance of trade in our favor The banks outside of the large business centers have been doing a thrifty but safe business All then loans or a large percent of them are secured by the best callat erals of property of actual cash value None of them have bacit wildspeculators on uncertain securities There has never begin a time when Jur banks were so strong and there never wasa depression in business affairs when the country generally could better stand it As to this section it is out of the range of a panic for the conservative busi ness methods keeps all within the limit of safety Speaking of the local financial situation the Hodgenyille Herald says In the money centers the trouble has been dissipated the banks being supplied with the necessary money to meet all demands In the rural sections all fears of trouble are aban doned and what once appeared as a financial crisis on the bus iness horizon has wasted away and business will naturally as sume its wanted activity Pru dence and caution is all that is necipcsary to prevent such troubles and they have been exercised in this case r The Secretary of the Treasury backed by Mr Roosevelt will is sue 100000000 Panama bonds ahd 50000000 government notes to lift the veil from General Confidence Should that sum be too small to bring sunshine and vigor to the business of the country a similar amouut could be placed on the Philippines and a mortgage on tfte Klondike floated for a neat sum If this should prove inadequateithen Portirico and the Sandwich Islands could be put in the cold storage for a

WORK OF THE COMING LEGIS M LATURE Since the election on Novem ber 5 a number of prominent State Democrats have been asked as to the probability of further temperance legislation being enacted at the opening session of the General Assembly Without an exception every one has de clared most positively that he did not believe there was any likelihood whatever of any more legislation on temperance lines In the first place the Democrats feel that there is no need of any extension or development of the county unit bill Again a num ber of prominent Democrats ar gue that the temperance people did not stand by them in the last election They claim they gave the AntiSaloon League the legislation it had been fighting for and then at the last moment leaders of that organization turned their backs on the Dem ocratic State ticket and worked to throw the temperance vote to the Republicans NEW LEGISLATION PROPOSED- A piece of legislation how ever which is being advocated extensively concerns the organ ization of the County Board of Election Commissioners Many Democrats are of the opinion that instead of the Sheriff of the various counties acting as the umpires of the Election Boards that the Circuit Clerk should be the umpire This sentiment among party leaders will be em bodied in a bill which will be i presented to the Legislature and it is said that it will receive the support of the Democrats in both houses BUT ONE ELECTION OF SENATOR Heretofore the State law di recting the election of United States Senators admitted of two constructions and in order to make the election of a Senator legal and secure the Legislature has voted twice for Senators For instance Senator McCreary was voted for on the first Tues day after the Assembly convened and again on the second- Tuesday At the last session however the ambiguity of the old statute was done away with by the passage of t a new act which fixes one particular day for the election of a United States Senator Dr Milton Board who possesses a wide knowledge of legislative matters said to day that the new statute as he understood it designated the first Tuesday after the Assembly convened as the time for electing the Senator
