VJ t b THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWSj A Republicans Testimony A Chicago telegram to the CourierJournal gives this ac count of Senator Bradleys ad dress to the Committee on Cre dentials The Fifth district was next called Senatorelect Bradley lead ing off He said that his case rested solely en the fraud omI 1andNaItionalinquire only into theregularityj of the district he had no case He then pro ceeded briefly and graphically to describe the proceedings at the mass conventions which consti tuted he saidsas foul and rotten an election as ever disgraced an American city He told how the police had interferred how one chairman had stood on the ballot box preventing the Fair banks men from voting while the Taft repeaters stuffed ballots in the side how men accused of participating in the 1905 election had appeared to stuff the boxes with Taft ballots how the Taft ballots were printed on thin pa per with red inkso that even when folded they could be distinguished He called particu lar attention to one affidavit filed with the mass of evidence presented in which a man charged that a member of the Board of Public Safety had paid a man to take repeater from one ward to another to vote for Taft During his argument Mr Bradleys time was extended by unanimous con sent How can the GodandMorality ites hold their heads up after such testimony The testimony is from the Re publican leader of the State the Republican warhorse of many battles the Republican who start ed the world in 1805 by carrying Kentucky for the Republicans The fact that Mr Bradley is for Fairbanks instead of Taft does notat least it ought not to render him any the less a Republican Isnot Fairbanks himself a good Republican May not a good Republican be for FairbanksThe is a Democrat but if such a partisan as Senator Bradley is not a Republican it confesses it does not know one when it sees him From the attitude taken by the GodandMoralityites no one is a good Republican who does not stuff ballot boxes in

night winds sing a requiem over his grave alone i in his narrow abode though surrounded by the ashes of Ken tuckys honored dead sleeps in the embrace of earth all that is mortal of William Go elthe

evident for some time ever since he constituted himself judge and juryr to hear the evidence construe the law and release these noted alleged criminals Governor Willson has made a farce out of the whole thing If he had given the people credit for one half the sense that he claims for himself he would have known that he was not fooling any one by his pretense to read and weigh the voluminous evidence in these cases and pass judicialopinion on the guilt or innocence of the accused He has been too busy running to Washington City to consult Roosevelt and New York to big dinners to do much of any thing else since he was inaugurated Governor The Democrats who were foolish enough to vote for Willson ought to feel sick clear down to their toes and go off in the corner and kick themselves to death Because of the political claptrap that has been exploited through the Republidan news papers Powers has been made out a hero in some quarters and Howard is looked upon as a martyr After eight years Messrs Powers and Howard are unconditionally for a I crime which some one committed and which three juries by their verdicts declair these men responsible That they are guilty there can hardly be any doubt Governor Wilson and the Republican press to the contrary notwithstanding A sentiment prisioners has been assiduously fos tered by the Republicans in or der to throw sand in the eyes of the public and pave the way to their release But no one was Willsonihas done what he was expected to do by the henchmen of his- party of militarism and murder Mr Willson as a Governor is a huge

around the corner from the architect I thought the world prettyihard on me though I was up J against it for fair When a friend said good morning I replied all right but it didnt look good to me Well sir while I was waiting for a car I saw a man walking on crutches and I thought ofmy two good legs On the corner where I got off I saw a bind man grinding a handorgan and I thought of my two good eyes A couple of illyclad and niifigiy looking children were listening to the organ and I thought of my own wellclad and wellfed children having a good time because their daddy was making fairly good wages Before going to work I picked up the morning paper and read an account of an eastern cashier who had committed suicide because he had speculated with bank funds and lost and I thought of the good job I had and the few paltry little debts that were not pressing Then I read of a di vorce in high life in New York thought of the little woman at home who always had a smile for me when I got home in the evening and a word of cheer whenever trouble loomedup By this time I was feeling pretty good and well content with my lot and when a friend came into the office and said good morning I said good morning with so much heartiness that he lookedsurprised I tell you old man all a fel low like me has to do to get a line on the blessings he really has to be thankful for is to com pare his lot with

and devotion to the principles of the Democratic party as represented by Jefferson and advocated by a tong line of illus trious leaders and as set forth in the National Democratic plat form in 1904 We indorse and point with satisfaction to the wise honest and economical con duct of the State government by the Democratic administration o- fGovJG W Beckham and his I associates in office We disapprove and condemn the weak vacillating hypocrit ical and arbitrary conduct of our State affairs by the present Re publican administration- We instruct the delegation elected by this convention to cast the

attentions of all the other men she knew for the inattention of one The hardest part about the next morning is not the effort to recall what particular story r you told your wife the night before Poor people dont have to economize on love kisses nor enthusiasm and with plenty of those One can cover all the bare spots on the walls of poverty Flatter a husband a little and he will adore you flatter him too much and he will soon begin to wonder why such a combination of Solomon and the Apollo Bel videre ever stooped to marry an 1 insignificant little thing like you Its the hours a woman spends making frocks that her husband never looks at and the hours aI man spends making jokes that his wife never laughs at that makes the matrimonial years draw so heavily- A mans wife like any other sort of stimulant ceases to have that exhilarating effect after she has become a steady diet Twos company but twins are a crowd A mans club is the death chamber in which he drowns his sorrow b1ir eshis

order in Chicago at noon Tuesday the 16th and Temporary Chairmana Burrows delivered his keynote address Aside from the demonstrations when President Roose velts name was mentioned there were few evidences of enthusi asm An effort by the Ohio del egation to start a demonstration for Secretary Taft evoked only a few scattering yells from outside delegations and spectators Af ter the presentation of names for the various committees the con vention adjourned to meet Wed nesday at noon The Committees on Credentials and Resolutions held animated sessions the former passing on contests and the latter hearing arguments over the various planks of the platform Steamroller methods contin ued to prevail when the contests were taken up by the Committee on Credentials The Kentucky contests after two hours of ar gument were quickly settled in favor of the Taft delegates The vote on theFirst district contest was 41 to 4 in favor of the Taft Jmenandthat was a fair index to the result generally The question of a nominee for the vice presidency was unsettl edWednesdaynightThe only pronounced feature was an ap parent strengthening of the boom for Goy Cummins of Iowa The injunction rlank inn the 1 jtP4V r f r t Evf platform caused a long debate The absence of W 0 Bradley from the Kentucky delegatio- was largely commented upon by national leadersI 1896 and 908 ITakethe Democratic platform of 1896 commonly known as the Chicago platform extract the Free Silver clause and you have a prettylaIr original of the ReJ publican platform as drafted for adoption in Chicago in this good year of 1908 And yet to very men Who are building the Republican platform this year the Chicago platform of 1896 was anarchy t If that platform was anarchy in 1896 it is anarchy today If j the Democratic party was a par ty of anarchists in 1896 the Re publican party is a party of an arehistsin 1908 If the antiin junction plank of the Democratic party in 1896 was an outrage m 1896 the antiinjunction plank of the Republican platform is not less an outrage in 1908 If it was bad then it Is fca tnow QnL the other hand 3f its isv good thing now it was nat a fd thing in 1896 If the ePltbjicaii party rchiststoJday not a party of anarchists in 1896 It in 1896 the Democratic party set such a dark and terrible example as the Republicans of even today will undertake to tellyolI it did Why do the Republican 1 i rr i fti i Jc P l 11 platform builders imitate that dark and terrible example On the other hand if the Democrats set a good example do not the 1IIrisy by denouncing the

the scar of a burn on his left cheek and can whistle like aj lark ask him if his name is Luke Hastingsand if his home is in England If he answers in the affirmative tell him that his father and mother are dead and that as soon as he is of age he will come into possession of an estate valued at about 75000 Three years ago Luke ran away fromjiome and came to America oil a tramp steamer and he isj supposed to have fallen in with a gang of hoboes and to be travel ing about the country at this time f The Handy Boy e In Germany it is the custom for every father who can afford it to supply his boy with a few tools after he has passed the age b of 10 and encourages him to use them about the house He will have a hammer saw plane pin cers chisels bits screwdrivers and so forth and though he may never take up the trade of carpenter or machinist he will be come a handy boy iIt is seldom that a German householder has to send for acar penter or plumber and he does his own paperhanging and paint

the Declaration of Independence that has besn had since the Spring of 1903 says the New York SuntNo one has seen the document for five yeary It is locked up in a safe in the library of the State Department and not even the officials of that department get it out to look at it Even before 1903 it had been kept in the safe but it was often brought out for admiring citizens to scrutinize and to exclaim over Since 1903 the light of day has not fallen on it lightIfactIgood thing too much folding Itoo much handling and also too much stealing of its immortal language by a wet press copying operation resorted to in 1820 This was tried as a means of securing a facsimile copy It was good enough for the copy but it was powerful bad on the original for it resulted in trans ferring to the copythe ink which on the old IIswiping exhibiItionthat visitors could decipher the traces of ink which remained For thirty years the Declaration of Independence hung in the light and the longer it hung there the more necessary the light became for the ink that was left grew paler and paler until it was hard to make out any of the signatures except the big black name of John Hancock Finally it became evident that f anything except the parch was to be left the document would have to be kept in the darkSoit went into retirement in the safe being brought out only upon special occasions In 1903 the late JohnHay then Secretary of State appoint eda committee to examine the condition of the declaration and- o recommend what should be done to preserve it The como mittee found it creased and bereft of its ink but they were pleased to find no evidence of moldor other disintegrating agents They recommended that the document be kept dark and dry and their recommenda ion has Jbeen religiously

iMules are scarcer in this coun ty at the present than has been the case in many years Mule buyers say that it would hardly be possible for them to find a car load of mules in the county at the present that are on the mar ketoThe heavy shipments the past winter and early spring pretty well cleaned them out especially that class that is in de mand in the various markets There is a heavy demand for the animals in foreign markets and they are being shipped out of the country in large lots The de mand for them in the Panama Canal alone is sufficient to keep the supply curtailed for several years It is predicted by mule buyers that the present high price will prevail for several years yet as t will be impossible to supply the extra demand that is made for them in the canal zone and foreign markets and at the same time keep up the home demand That the mule raising industry will be a paying one in this coun ty for several seasons is a fact that is not disputed and it is predicted that a larger number of them will be raised than has heretefore been the case Larue County Herald COMMISSIONERS SALE ADAIR CIRCUIT COURT KENTUCKY G A D HONEY c Plaintiff t ELNORADoHONEYc

beyond the skies And came to earth And in a garden found the flower Beautiful blossom of an hour The angel touched it and it sighed Then dropped upon its stem and died But the angel took that flower so sweet And laid it at the Saviors feet Fling open wide ye gates so fair Let hallelujahs fill the air The angel comes from earth belowI Bringing a flower as white as snow All free from pain from sin unrest To bloom anew on Jesus breast Oh mourning ones heartbroken sad blooms in heavenrejoice be glad ook up by faith and see her now Waving a palm upon her brow A crown of gold while angel bands Have led her with their loving hands And placed her on the Saviors breast To blossom there and be at rest ANNA HUBER KENT KENTUCKY FAIR DATES The following are the dates fixed for holding the Kentucky
