Cane Valley as it was in 1855 and as it is today Also the state of the colored slave at that time and as he is today In 1855 the writer had a post office established and gave it the name Cane Valley and had him self appointed postmaster At that time there was not a post office between Columbia and Campbellsville a distance of 20 miles Farmers were compelled to ride ten and twelve miles for their mail Now there are five postoffices immediately on the pike between the two towns In 1855 there was but one store house and that owned by my fath er J F Bridgwater his dwelling and the cabins for his slaves 30 in number were all the houses in Cane valley at that time There were ten persons in my fathers family and they and his slaves constituted the population Now there are three dry goods stores one grocery one drugstore one general repair store one stove and tin shop one broom factory two blacksmith shops steamImachine four churches and one bank and more business than in Chicago 1 mean Chicago Mari on county We have a high school and a good many modern built houses with a pop ulation between two and three hundrd Here I might stop yet I can not forbear a few parting words It is good on this holy day not only to call up those we love and venerate but we have feariLook at the huge heaps of tro phies piled upon the tombs of our glorious dead then say we have no charge to keep no be quest to defend Shall the dawn of some future day find our watch towers abandoned our al tars overthrown our free insti tutions trodden by foreign hir lings or desolated by internal strife Shall our onward course be checked Shall our high fortunes be mared in the very spring of unclouded glory No perish the thought forever If there are dangersabroad they threaten the whole country alike and that there is an evil in our borders is wellknown to all I mean the pandorabox of north ern fanaticism on the subject of the race question Today there are more slaves in Lowell and Nashua alone than there were in all the Southern States slaves of l their own colorwhite slaves But let sickness or old age come and they are kicked into the gutter to starve or sent to the almshouse to die Could the fanatics have pointed to a single case of that kind among the blacks of the South Didnt they know that the master protected and provided for his slaves in sickness in health in infancy and in old age But slavery was an evil they saidAn evil to whom the master If to any body it was not an evil to the slave for- this master to sit in his counting rdom from morning till night to earn the whereal to enable his slaves to live like nabobs in com parative idleness It was not an evil to the slave to have all his wants supplied It might have been W evil to t ecountryalld to the master but ablessing to the slave But slavery perished like the insidious vine which wound itstreacheous folds around I t ttM1i fI fits trunkclung to its wide throwingjfetters of bondage around it green leaves till the

Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Poatoffice as second class mail tatter WED MAT 13 1908 The Republican Conventions held at London and Louisville last week were not in keeping with the doctrine Repulicans preach if reports are true For years Republicans of this State have been denouncing frauds clamoring for a free vote and a fair count outspoken in their disapproval of machine methods parading before the people the sins of the Democratic party as they pretended to see them How is it now What think the people any way Have the Re publican leaders been acting hy pocracy or have they suddenly fell from their lofty pearch and sunk into the slums of the sins they denounce This may be a question with some of the dear people2but to our mind time nev er existedwhen they wanted a free votejand a fair count unless such action would land them win ners and in Kentucky it would not ordinarily do so The Con ventionJat London to select del egates to the National Conven tion was one which discredits all pretentions to fairness on the line of a free vote and a fair count The adherents of Ed wards and Taft took possession of the convention and run rough shod over the Matthews and Fairbanks people whichmet with a vigorous and unsucessful protest After disposing of every proposition to suit themselves adjourned At this juncture the other side undertook to hold a convention but were left in dark ness by the lights being turned off It is reported threatening language and demonstrations of force were resorted to in or der to gain a victory At Louis ville the State convention was equally onesided and fully under the control of their new boss Marshall Bullit who put to the wall the other boss Wm 0 Bradley In the history of Ken tucky politics the recent primary in Louisville the conventions in London and Louisville take the lead in highhanded frauds boss ism and machine methods In the face of such actions Repub lican against Republican com mitting frauds ignoring the rights they ought to respect act ing under heir own party rules who can credit that party with sincerity in its clamor before the people for a free vote and a fair countfor better political living The delegates to the national convention from this district are F P Combest Casey county and Emil Helborn of Bell coun ty The Stateatlarge Gov A 3 3 E Willson Marshall Bullitt Judge Burr l11 and G W Lane colored Instructed for Taft 1 believe that menMshould be- asW and act as honorable in poiiticaljcontest as in the ordinary avocations of business Dishonesty debauchery and frauds can not be defended by any up right man can not be justified by emergency nor become the measure of righteous results To walk in the ways of political virtue to shun the paths that lead to frauds you must have leaders true to the great principles of justice men who will not dirty their hands to make money or reputation This time this year the Democrats will have such a man asK they have had beforea man whose living is in keeping with his preaching who has been before the people long enough tojbe known and is known to be true in every particuiar W J Bryan is the man and to his reaching his living t is large ly due the efforts in States and nation to sweep cheats and frauds from power and to have an hon est accounting He is the man to our liking and he suits millions of voters Where is that magnetic leader of Republicans in Kentucky the man who fought the battles of the party for years and largely responsible for the strength and growth of Republicanism in this State Wm 0 Bradley Be cause he espoused the cause of Fairbanks the man that Repub licans of this State should have supported on the grounds of close relationship of intense in terest and efforts on his part to aid Kentucky Republicans to win their battles the Senator elect has had his toes turned to the daisiesto recognize and honor anew convert at the pie counter whose methods of warfare can not be accepted by men who be lieve in a fair square deal In the history of our country it has no parallel in any of the States We have received a copy of the first issue of the Marion County Leader which made its appear ante at Lebanon last week It is an eight column four page sheet well gotten up mechani cally and contains much inter esting matter The paper is ed ited by Mr CA Johnston who is assisted by Mr R C Blan ford wellknown here and Mr Arthur Smith who is the business manager It is a Republi can sheet and aside from its pol itics the first issue makes a good impression Adair county not so fortunate as some other localities in the Eleventh district in the distribution of honors in the Republican conventions yet not neglected Hon M Rey Yarberry was nam ed as an alternate delegate

to my mind has there been a time when men men of princi ple of firmness of strong charac ter were more needed than to djray Some of the things that are to day degrading our youth and leading them down in the path way of darkness is the attend ing of the theater dancing halls ithecard table horse racing and saloons and the chief dangers attached to these evils and that which renders it a delicate matter for men to assume an attitude of hostility to is that among the patrons of and apologists for these social customs are some of our good men and women As to moral and social worth were It not for the infusion of this ele ment into to these evils they would fall to pieces as a result of their unworthiness To antago nize these false social customs sustained and upheld by the I wealth and culture of many of our towns and cities to brand that as wrong and corrupt ing which wealth arid social po sition declare to be right chaste and elevating requires a degree of heroism scarcely below that of the martyrs during the dark days of blood and persecution still a strong thoughtfulman will and must oppose these and all kindred vices Men rely on yourselves take it for granted that you can

does not feel within himself the powj er to conquer fate is not a man in the true sense of the word He will never be of any benefit to himself nor to the world They man who says I will who says it
