men and young ladies is for this particular line of work Prof SZTucker has several students now taking lessons and there can hardly bea doubt as to his success Columbia and Adair county ought to feel proud of such a school and those inclining for such work should not fail to take advantage of such a training school here at hone instead of going to other places where the cost will be more than doubled Railroad work is one of great importance and there is always a good position open for a good operator The News trusts that Prof Tu ker will inake a great success in his undertak ing and that

of the trusts dispassionate in statement conservative 4ill temper logical in argument and convinc ing in array of facts It was the speech not of a demagogue attacking the posses siqn of wealth in order to curry favor with and gain votes from those opposed to the possession of wealth by others but of a man seeking to secure for the largest number of his fellow men the right and the opportunity to obtain an adequate return for tile product of their labor whether that return be great or small The speech proves Mr Bryan to be the enemy of but one class tarIiffpurchased by campaign contribu tions and party subserviency In the course of that speech Mr Bryan in defining his position and that of his party in the campaign VThe dIInot oppose all corporations on the contrary it recognizes that the corporation can render an important service to the public The Democratic party wants to employ every instrumentality that can be employed for the ad vancement of the common good but the Democratic party draws the line at the private monopoly and declares that a private monopoly cannot be justified on eith er economic or political grounds From an economic standpoint a monopoly is objectionable The moment a corporation secures aI practical monopoly in the production of sale of any article certain evils appear which outweigh any good that can come from large production or control Whenever private monopolies exist cer maniIfestpricesthis is the first thing thought of for the increasing of profits Then in proportion as it becomes the only purchaser of he raw material it reduces the price of the raw material and the producer of that raw materi al having no other market must accept the price offered In this way too the profits of the corporation are increased Third a reduction in the quality of the product affords an opportunity for increasing profits j Fourth reduction in wages follows where ever conditions will permit Competition protects the pur chaser for when a number of in dependent producers stand ready to supply hinrwith what he needs he can choose between them and buy from the one who offers the best product at the lowest price He is also protected in quality because those who compete for j the opportunity to sell to him must show either advantage in price or advantage in quality j orjwhenders for that which is being sold he can accept the highest price offered Competition helps the vagejearner for his skill is the finishing product which he offers upon the lar tandwbere a- numberof independent industries je endeavoring to secure the lighest skill the

advantage of his experience if he must go out to find a different kind employment Mr Bryan and the Democratic party are opposed to monopoly because it benefits the few at the expense of the many They op posed to monopoly because they desire better prices for the raw material better quality for the finished product better wages for the workmen and a cost to the consumer based not on the greed of the producer but on the value of the product as fixed by competition in an open market Further than this Mr Bryan and the Democratic party are agreed on and committed to a practical programme for putting their purposes into effect The election of Mr Taft means the defeat of this program and the strengthening of monopolies at the cost of the raw material the wageearner and the consumer On this as on otherissues they is too clearly defined for question The man calling himself a Democrat who will not vote for Mr Bryan in November should change his name to fit the nature of his politics

generally disapprove of the ncmination of Taft for President the Pente costal Herald says The people do not they cannot feel that Mr Taft is a great serious deep souled statesman with farreach ing oversight loving the great common people and laboring for the consummation and fulfillmen- of great ends which will brin about the peace quietude and prosperity of the nation As war secretary he has favored the opening up of saloons in the forts and army posts of the country He is making bids for the Cath olic vote of the country Not long since he said in a speech The sooner the Catholic church is restored to power in the Philippine Islands the better it will be for that country He knows th statement is not true The Catholic church has had undisputed sway in those islands for many decades and they have debauched and robbed the peo pIe He is a Unitarian Does this Christian nation want to put a man at its head who does not believe in pray to or worship Jesus Christ Our God is a jeal ousGodand to reject His Son is to reject Him If we thrust God away from us He will leave us to ourselves and then calamities will come thick and fast The above reflects the views of the Pentecostal Herald and is worthy of due consideration by every true Christian It is lib matter of small import to place a man at the head of our govertment who does not believe in the divinity of Christ Thoughtful Christian people should well consider this matter before the time to vote If the success of a Republican cadidate is greater than the onward movement of Christ in our country then Mr Taft should be electedI And should he be elected show that the Christian spirit is not so deep rooted as we profess and that the blighting hand of partisan prejudice has our coup try in its grasp The News does not believe in measuring the ability patriotism or efficiency of any man by his religious views but it does not believe that any manner any party should con trol our goverment who rejects the doctrine of Jesus Christ and so far as it could would aid in the defeat of any man for th Presidency or any other position of public trust who hold to such jews i If we cannot have a devout Christian

other points of interest to tourists are circulating an immencs petition asking congress to turn the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky into a national pleas ureground for the PeoPleSof the United States Under the terms of the will of the late George Croghan who owned the Mammoth Cave it was left to his eleven nephews and nieces for life with instructions that after their death the cave is to be sold at public auction to the highest bidder This was many years ago and now only a few aged men and women of the original eleven remain alive So in the natural course of Human events the Mammoth Cave will soon pass into other hands and as it is a practical monopoly the people of Kentucky are averse to seeing it privategcorporation n gress is therefore being preparf ed asking that steps be taken in the direction of acquiring Mammoth Cave and the land above it fora national park free to all the American people and their guests from foreign shores Josh Coe the negro desperado who was killed on Pea

generation and whose lovely companions and friends have been taken from them Unable to en gage in the activities of life they are no longer brought into contact and sympathy with those around them and no tie of common interest and mutual dePend- s bind them together They necessarially to a great extent live in a world of their own with which those around them are not familiar The communing oftheir hearts are with the scenes of thepast and the companions of other years who have long ago passed away Lover and friends have been taken from them and their acquaintances laid in darkness The farms they admiredand loved are gone The eyes that once looked into theirs with the tenderest affection are sightless and the voice that cheered and stirred their souls have long sine been silent Their world of hope and joy has became a desolation and they sit in silence contemplating the ruin that has been wrought They are only waiting till th a shadows are a little longer grown to pass on to the reunion that awaits them and the glad greetings of those they loved Who would not do what they could to cheer the loneliness of the aged to smoothe their path way and to comfort them in their

and I have been much amused to learn that some of his Texas friends want to run him for Congress If he runs in that district he wil be elected hands down The other day he paid a short business visit to a Texas town and endeared himself to the hearts 6J the local populace Some of the gamesters of the town heard in advance that Mr Gates was coming and prepared to furnish a little entertainment and excitement They raised a poker pot o 44000 All right boys said Mr Gate 1 really havent the time to play poker for that roll oi money but Ill tell you what Ill do Ill match you for it There was a hasty consulta tion and the delegation agreed to the proposal Mr Gates pulled out a half dollar and slapped it down on the table saying Im matching you One of the members of the delegation fished out a

wanted a chance to injure the moneyed interests He talked a little like an anarchist according to the sheriff He was seen in the jail today by an Advocate reporter but positively refused tc talk He showed a very mean disposition and it was evident that he keenly felt his deep remorse Burns is said to be 80 years old and that he has in his time been a very slick forger and has operated as a

than it has the packer The latter is once more confronted with the problem of higher cost on one hand and a poorer consumptive demand on the other With top cattle close to the 6i cent mark this week and grass beef still more than three months away the minus margin in the dressed beef trade looms large especially in view of the present public apathy for beef and the cheapness of pork It is generally admitted that the supply of fresh beef cattle in the country is very much less than normal Cattle are higher than at any similar period since 1902 with one exception Fewer cattle were put on feed last fall and the high cost of corn has tendered to restrict the output Feeders see their advantage and are likely to hold it as long as possible Ap parently there is no relief in sight until grass cattle begin to come in Meanwhile 7 cent cattle are predicted On the other hand the packer has a hard time getting a fraction more for his beef The butcher feels the pulse of the consumptive trade and is indifferent to the wholesalers arguments What beef he finds it necessary to buy he is paying somewhat more forI however and the market appears to be gradually strengthening Should it get above two cents for good beef we may expect another outbreak of yellow newspaper talk about a combination to boost beef prices It is strange how quickly the news spreads when the butcher has to explain to his customer why he is charging more for retail cuts Nation al Provisioner Another Object Lesson The sale of 28000 tons of steel rails to a Harriman railroad in Mexico is reported at 20 a ton At home the price is rigid at 28 Thus the home consumer pays 40 per cent more for his rails than the foreigners There is of course no reaSon for a tariff on steel rails when they can be sold abroad so much less than the home price This is one of the cases where the Democratic platform recommends the removal of the duty The product is controlled by a trust which exacts more from our home consumers than is paid by the foreigners Give the American a chanceCourierJournalK- entucky Sunday School Association t The Fortythird Annual Con vention of the Kentucky Sunday heldVat Newport K

Bryan will get 1500 Republican votes in the political division of the State A prominent official of a negro or ganization states that Bryan will receive 90 per cent of the negro votes in Greene county If this statement be approximately cor rect and other claims made be not exaggerated Bryan will re ceive 2000 Republican votes in Greene county and this is but one of the 88 counties of the State True conditions here are abnormal due to internecine war among the Republicans of the district and to the enmity har bored by hundreds of rabid For aker Republicans in this county against the possible ascendency of Taft But what is true of Greene county true ofthe Sixth District and what is true of the Sixth District is true to a degree of the entire State There is but one sane conclusion There will be a Bryan landslide in Ohio and the Nebraskan will carry the Buckeye State The grand jury of Lyon county failed to indict any of the men held under peace bonds who were implicated in raids by Sanford H land Torn Stevens Messrs Hall and Stevens cnould not be secured to testify before the grand jury and itisj probable that the men will be released There seems to be some contention between thCommon wealthS Attorney Smith and Bounty Attorney Ki one as tr witnesses tnt ir it Marie Cahiif To The Rescue Miss Marie Cahill the well known actress and a woman whose interest in the stage from her standpoint behind the foot lights has always been direct to the encouragement of what is clean and wholesome writes in indignant protest against the Salome dance Miss Cahill is right when she describes the performance as a theatrical offering that clothes pernicious subjects in a boasted artistic atmosphere but which is really an excuse for the most vulgar exhibition that this coun try has ever been called upon to tolerateThe has taken a method of making her protest that is perhaps not as wise as the motive which prompts her Her letter has been sent to the leaders of the two great political parties urging that they use their influ ence to prevent the continuance of these indecent and digusting displaysThe dance is hardly a thing that can be made a politi cal issue or fought out in the national campaign I t would seem that the same exercise of authority sustained by public sentiment that resulted in the withdrawal from the stage of- the original opera in which the dance was featured might be successfully employed again Can it be that the taste of New York theater goers has reached the level where it i s willing to tolerate this kind of performance without objection So far as reported Miss Calhill has been the first to raise a voice of indignant disapproval It is surely a strange condition of af fairs when the showloving pubj lie has to be protected from be hind the

middling comfortable but perhaps most of us would prefer to visit the seashore or the lakes or the mountains or just to live and loll at some old fashioned farmhouse far from the madding crowd Our fore fathers as a rule did not indulge in the luxury of seashore board walkand pavilions but nevertheless they lived closer to nature than we do and in our efforts to enjoy more of life than the humdrum routine affords we ar simply striving to get back to natural conditions We want to live outdoors We want to live the simple life That Is why we build bungalows by the lake shore pitch tents in the woods and inhabit house boats on the water House boating is one of the newest and most popular forms of outing life It is only of late years that the house boat has made its irresistible anneal

His Decisions From the Federal Bench Stamp Him the Workingmans Foe Trend of the PressGerman Vote Swinging to BryanFinancing the Democratic Campaign By WILLIS J ABBOT The work pf pushlngthe Bryan cam paign has begun in earnest at the headquarters of the Democratic na tional committee in the Auditorium Annex sin this city Colonel John YV Tomlinson the national committeeman from Alabama who is in charge of the bureau of organization said the other day We have not less than 50000 precinct committeemen throughout the United stats To every precinct rep resentative it Is our intention to send requests for the formation of clubs a plan for their organization and direc tions as to where they can secure the proper lithographs buttons post cards and other paraphernalia necessary to ciub work While it is not altogether probable that we shall get returns from all of these committeemen I feel It Is certain that we will get at least 20000 answers You can readily un derstand that 20000 organizers of clubs throughout the country will mean a tremendous power for the Democratic cause Of the 20000 at least half are in doubtful states but we shall hove lubs in all states whether doubtrnl or not I wish you would say if you have an opportunity that men other than precinct committeemen who will write to me at the headquarters of the national committee can secure authority for the organization of clubs and a printed certificate of the authority provided that some one has not earlier been apijplnted in the same precinct Colonel Tomlinson will shortly begin a tour of the country organizing clubs Meantime those who desire to take part in this work may wellcommuni cate with him at the Chicago head quarters Political Finances The finances of the present campaign both in the Republican and Democrat- Ic parties are likely to be embarrassing No doubt the Republican party will have the more money but as for many years it has been In the habit of having absolutely unlimited means its comparative poverty this year Is likely to trouble It more tfian the positive poverty to which the Democracy has long been accustomed Apropos of that the chairman of the financial committee Moses Wetmore of St Louis interviewImoney nat with which to pay the legitimate ex pen es of the campaign and Chairman Maqk of the national committee Is determined to run the campaign on a very economical basis The committee is very much encouraged by the fact- that while no organized effort has yet- been made for the collection of funds Gbyernor Haskell treasurer of the cOmmittee reports that very gratifying contributions are coming into his dayjDemocratic newspapers all over the country take up the matter of collecting money we expect sub stantial results You know that this Is a peoples campaign and the people therefore musfproduce the money to carry it on Donations of a small sum will be just as thankfully received as those of a larger amount and our rec ords will be so kept that the small con tributor will receive the same credit and be Just as gratefully remembered as one who contributes a larger sum We feel that in fixing the maximum limit to be received from any one per son at 10000 we acted patriotically and wisely but we would rather have 10000 contributions of 1 each than one big lump sum for the perfectly ob vious reason that such a list of contri- butIons would mean 10000 loyal sup porters of the Democratic cause I The German Press In the Campaign It is no doubt due to the influence of the New York StaatsZeitung and its distinguished editor Herman Rid der thai sp great a number of German papers have wung over to the Demo cratic party A rather interesting il lustration of this was furnished me the other ayb1L E Fay of the Clifton Daily Advrtiserof Iowa Mr Fay tISa candidate for congress in the See congressional district of that state and he1 Informs me that six German newspapers which heretofore have been Republican are this year sup porting the Democratic ticket This is Ia rather unusual situation in the mid west While many Germans have been in sympathy with politics and with the DemocraticI that party there has been of voters of that nationality and par 1UCUIRrlYOn the part of their newspa to support the Republican party Possibly this has grown put of the service of so many blyftIij Herman r fqtltlonbroken It began in 1892 tQ

and how many Gfmans will come to the support of Democracy in the pending campaign 4Mr Kerns Speech of Acceptance l Long before this time the speech pf acceptance of the Democratic caridi date for the presidency has been print jed in all the newspapers of the land Mr Bryans speech was characteristic of the man It was ethical rather than prtncIIdistinct Issues all of which had been covered by the platform on which be forIrule of the government by the people and the assertion that the Democracy spejyet to issue his letter of acceptance but my understanding Is that It will follow very much the same line He Is a clear thinker and one who can publictPeople saying that John W Kern was not known widely outside of his own state That Is probably true but I venture to ex press the belief that before this campaign is over he will be one of the most widely known men in the United States His style of oratory Is rather restrained than florid But he talks convincingly argunientatively and quietly and perhaps sometimes a quiet talk does more to influence an audi ence than the fireworks of the fire brand orator Moreover Mr Kern will make a close and a dear friend pf ev ery man whom he meets This will not perhaps influence the election very- greatly for this year according to the figures that I have seen complIed there will be not less than 18000000 votes cast and no man can personally meet even a modicum of these voters But those who meet him will admire him and In my judgment will vote for himNewspaper Men In the Campaign The Democratic national headquarters here were invaded two or three days ago bjr a delegation of owners and editors of newspapers whpse homes ranged all the way from Portland Ore to Lexington N C There were repre sentatives of papers from Belle Plain Kan from New Roads La from Greenwood Miss from Tallassee Ala from Logansport Ind and from Hope Ark This Is a mere selection of the various towns and states represented But all with one accord though there were one or two Repub licaris in the gathering declared that their people were going to support the Deirioorhtlc ticket this year wand that i their belief was that Mr Bryan would have an overwhelming victory Perhaps this information coming from Ala bama or Arkansas might not have been astonishing but when It came from Indiana and Oregon it Is worth attention Taft and Injunction When the Republican party goes to the voters of this nation and particularly If it asks anything from the workingmen It will find the fact that its candidate William H Taft was the head and almost be originator of the injunction against Iaborx movements will rise up to curse It t who when on the bench joined with the somewhat notorious Judge Ricks in issuing the first sweeping injunction against the right of laboring men to either strike or to agitate It was a Taft convention which voted down any resolution that meat action on this particular evil WhatfEaft may say now immaterial What he did when he sat on the bench was to issue a sweeping Injunction against the right to carry on a strike because it prohibited men engaged in a labor dispute from Inviting others to join them It prohibited them from agitating the is sues Involved In the strike and even- declared that they should not be allowed to gather on the streets to ac cumulate by contributions from mem hers of the labor union a fund which shall enable them to live during the pendency of the strike or in brief to conduct the strike in any way that would make It effective The members of the American Federation of Labor are cognizant of these facts The members of the Switchmens union neof the strongest labor organizations know about it The reason that every labor paper in the United States is l rlntine articles hostile to Taft the reason that every labor leader In the country is fighting him is simply because of auseiabsolutely controlled refused to adopt resolutions denouncing the principle of government by
