WAR TALK Two attempts have been made to poison the water used by the regulars in camp at Mobile Ballance United States mus tering officer said he would rush the Kentucky men to the front as soon as equipments are furnished if he has to send one company at a time It is claimed that no material aid can be given the insurgents in Cuba until at least three bases of supplies are occupied then it would re quire weeks to mobilize the insurgent forces The Surgeons Board began the work of examining volunteers at Lex ington Tuesday Of 79 men in Compa ny G of Covington 19 failed to pass and 24 men will have to be recruited to fill the company The work is now progressing swiftly The men at Lexington are begin ning to complain of their quarters They say they would prefer the open field to the crowded buildings Many of them are anxious to go to the front and the news telling of the change in the plans for the volunteer army to le sent direct to the coast centers is peasant news to them There may not be a great naval bat tIe at present in Porto Rican waters unless information conveyed to the United States Government is errone ous Instead of the expected naval battle we are to have the bombard ment of Havana and San Juan and the military occupation of Cuba and Porto Rico sooner than anticipated In consequence of this plan for im me Hate t movement against Havana and San Juan the orders for the at have been countermanded the troops ordered to that point will go instead to Tampa Mobile and New Orleans for for immediate service in tha two isl ands It is expected to land an army to strike a decisive brow Aspecial from Washington says one of the Kentu ky regiments will almost 0rtiily be ordered to Tamps The Wr Department it figuring rpon a troops direct to Tamp i whh out

Admiral Sampson is waiting near Por to Rico has arrived at Cadiz The Department evidently accepts the report as true and has decided to be gin at once the reduction or San Juan and Havana The army is moving rapidly to the points of embarkation and will probably be landed in force on Ciban soil within a week when a joint attack by land and sea will at once be made The attack on Porto Rico is to simultaneous with that on Cuba San Juan will be the imme diate objective point of Rear Admiral Sampson who has also instructions to destroy or capture all Spahish ships in Porto Rican waters San

Thompson a candidate for renomination by the Dem ocratic party for Representative in Con press from this the Sth district Kentucky troops at Lexington were stirred up considerably Tueiday when they were told they would be ordered south as fast as they could be equipped Reports from Lexington say every one of the recruits so far questioned is wild with joy at the seeming opportunity to move forward They are eager for the quick arrival of the equipment ordered by Captain from Washington and which it is thought will be here by the last of next week at the furthest The soldiers are being put through a great deal of work Instead of the light drilling received last week in small doses they are now required to drill about six hours a day The men are in good health and spirits but are greatly perplexed at the snails gait in which they are equipped Capt Uallancc the army officer in charge of the recruiting in Kentucky was interviewed regarding the time necessary to get the Kentucky troops into the field lIe said We cannot leave here until they areequippedand I am afraid that will b3 a long time It is doubtful if the wool has been sheared for the Kentuckians uniforms and you know we cannot go into a campaign until they are properly uni formed We are getting along very slowly for all this work is new and we nave no precedents to go by J he same rules which were in force when the volunteers of the civil war were being mustered into service do not ap ply now and it is a much slower busi ness than it was in those days IT is hoped that the poor condition in which the state troops were found will have the effect of opening the eyes of our people ana causing better provision to be made for the guard It is impossible for an Adjutant General or Governor to keep the troops on fighting footing when the legislature fails and refuses to set aside money for the purpose A great many men have served as legislators who did not even know of the existence of a state guard The election of such men is tie direct cause of our troops being so far be hind other states when Uncle Sam called for help The adjutant gener als make reports after reports calling attention to what is needed by the guards but the average legislator slept through their reading the re ports were pigeonholed and that end ed it 1 he writer of this article was a member of the State Guard for six years and knows of the way the or ganization has been neglected No officers on earth can sustain good unless the equipments are forthcoming If the salaries paid a number of figureheads at Frankfort were applied toward keeping up the State Guard it would be far better for the Commonwealth If firstclass equipment was furnished the best ycung men in the state would enlist and we would soon have a guard equal to that of the other states IT has been clearly demonstrated that the Spanish gunners are a flat failure While it was to be expected that the best ships of Deweys squad ron would receive little or no injury at the hands of the Spanish fleet it is difficult to understand how his lighter vessels got away from the large Span ish cruisers without something to show that there had been a fight There was the little Petrel She registers but 892 tons sits high in the water is without protection for her gunners and little for her vitals There was the revenue cutter McCulIoch which is in no sense a warship There was the Boston far below two of the Span ish ships in registered tonnage and horse power At the beginning of the contest the Spaniards had two ships that should have made it unpleasant for any vessel in the American fleet save the Olympic queen of the China Sea the seasoned but powerful Balti more and the sturdy Raleigh Yet there is no evidence that ahy shot from the best of the Spanish guns on the best of the Spanish ships was against the little fellows that flew the Stars and Stripes Taking the Manila fight as a cue the Spanish navy will not last before Uncle guns as long as a snowball in perJi TilE dreams of many of those to raise regiments are doubtless the same as the small boys after read ing the little yellow back novel They fancy themselves wading in blood kneedeep at the head of the column of course Then they see in fancy their names in flaming headlines to the world that Colonel Bloodthirsty lead his gallant men through the thickest of the fire etc These patriots all means be mustered in and then it should be been to that they are sent to the front IT gives us a pain under the apron to read of Teddy Roosevelts Anything harder than a feather bed

land at Matanzas bringing only fever immunes in the first division This message is taken as a definite settlement of the place of landing and nothing now remains but push the troops into the island The lot of the private soldier is not an unpleasant one In times of peace he works only about four hours a day for his board and clothes and 13 a month the monthly cash stipend in creasing annually until after five years it is a month Plans for the invasion of Cuba will not be put into execution until meets the Spaniards or discovers their whereabouts Secretary Alger has carried his point and a large army composed in part of southern volun teers will be the invading force The administrrtion is strongly im pressed with the feeling that the final battles is about to be fought It has the utmost confidence in the sampson fleet and naval officers here can not see how spain after suffering another dis astrous defeat can continue the war The Cabinet and President have to annihilate the Spanish fleet if Sampson has to cross the Atlantic They will send troops to Manila f r the occupancy of the island They have so far decided to send troops to Cuba for the occupancy of the island as early as possible On account of the great financial dis tress in Havanna the merchants are not very well supplied with provisions The country near the towns was laid waste by Weyler a policy that will re sult in a boomerang finish and the gaunt specter of famine stalks through out the island This is now being alle viated by cargoes of fool from the United States Gen Miles has recommended a thor ough mingling of the volunteers and regular soldiers and the plan has been adopted One regiment of regulars will be attached to each division There will be seven army corps commanded by highest ranking Major Generals The remaining six Major Generals will be assigned to command divisions Four camps have been one opposite Washington one at Long Island one at Chicanviuga and at Tampa Admiral Dewey having ascd for men a force of 10000 will be sent him The Prssident is desirous that every island in the Philippines shall be oc cupied and the Spaniards driven therefrom Transportation for 10000 men has been arranged by fleet ships from San Francisco It is expected that 5000 will be ready to leave in five days and as many more five days later The army of occupation will represent every branch of

twenty five bullets a minute with a range of 4000 yards against forty shots a min ute at 0000 yards for the new regula tion KragJorgeuson a very imperfect notion is given of the difference in e ectivencss between the twe weapons difference lies mainly in the in crease I danger space where the IvragJorgenson is used The velocity of the projectile fired by the KragJor genson is so great that its course thro the air is nearly horizontal so that it would kill a man who stood anywhere between the muzzle of tne rfle and a distance of three miles A Spriug fiild bullet on the other hand might kill at two miles but if properly aim ed for such a range would go over the head of a man standing a mile away Commodore Dewey has been heard fom and the American people are compensated for the delay by the grat ifying information that the victory at Manila was even more complete and glorious than first reports made it Not only was the Spanish iljet com pletely destroyel and the forts cap tured leaving DJWCV master of Ma nila Biy but this result was without the loss of a single life on the American ships and with only eight wounded an Ameri can ship was disabled or even serious ly disabled Admiral he has been not taken Manila when his dispatch boat bring ing the reports printed today left Ma nila on May 4 but ae is in a position to take it whenever he gets ready It will be remembered that the Spanish official reports last Sunday of the bat tle of Manila aroused false hopes victory at Madrid by interpreting the withdrawal of the American ships the first two hours fighting as an indication that the Americans had been badly damaged It now appears that Commodore Dewey only with drew for breakfast after which he fin ished the job in short order Many old soldiers now feel the of

this statement as it does our i injustice for we do only a commiss ion business Mr Greene or any mem ber of our firm has not bought or to be bought any lambs and we buy any stock in the country We

effect of the war between the United States and Spain on the agricultural and industry Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Bringhstlii can see no ma terial good that can result to the farm er A prolonged war would doubtless raise the price of breadstuffs and which indirectly would be to the advantage of the producer but in that event it is probable that the farm er would be required to pay higher prices for the articles he needs None but a prophet can foresee the end at this time It may be pointed out that most of our export cattle and meat trade goes under the British fiag and hence would be expected to suffer no great interruption Tho American which have been chartered by tho United States Government have a car rying capacity for meats equal to about 1000 cattle per week but room can probably be found in bottoms flying other flags to take our export stuff The price of wheat has been pushed up and provisions have advanced Breed ers Gazette I have been a sufferer from

arrange a meeting at the Court House next ecu cm t lay here to consider the grave arising from the proposed gigan tic trust of tobacco manufacturers The case in this say there gentle men The American Tobacco Co a 25000000 concern is to absorb all other manufactories of tobacco by getting them into a new and larger trust to be known as the Continental Tobacco Co and capitalized at fifty millionsAll manufactories that amount to anything have signel a willingness to go into it save the Liggett Myers Co of St Louis and a few other con cerns If that company should enter the combine no doubt all others would The Liggett Myers Co is being offer ed every inducement they have ten million dollars cash for their plant and in addition will stay out of of the monopoly- If this company joins the trust there will no longer be any competition The terrible monopoly can then say ty situation trying refused we will give just so much for your and no more the farmer will be at its mercy and may have to starve Furthermore the monster can say to the consumer everywhere You pay our price for plug tobacco smoking tobacco etc or do with the price will bi knocked akelter It will thus be seen that it is a mon opoly that can exert its grinding pow er in two directions with most disas trous consequences- At the meeting proposed farmers will doubtless pass resolutions warm ly endorsing the independent compan ies for the stand taken and urging them to stand firm Resolution calling for legislation to protect farmers and consummers from such a monopoly will also be passed The farmere are urged to act

for there is nothing that so intutTuriss with sin there is nothing so ruinous to every form of established iniquity thieve is nothing that has such tendency to turn the world upside down as our

Apologies for 1 hope that day has passed Wo want no more apologies for Christian ity Let the apologies be on time part of those who do nut believe in our religion We do not mean to make any compromise in the matter We do not wish to hide the fad that Christianity is revolutionary and that its tendency is to turn the world upside down Our religion has often been misrepresented as a prin ciple of tears and mildness and afraid of crossing peo pies prejudices afraid of somebody mad with silken gloves lifting the people up from tho church pew into as though they were Bohemian glass so very delicate that with one touch it may be demolished forever Men speak of religion as though it were a refined imbeuility as though it were a spiritual chloroform that the people were to take until the sharp cuttings of lifo were over The Bible so far from this represents the religion of Christ as robust and sacking and unsetting ten thousand things that now seem to be on firm foundations I hear

dominancy to that one who is the most worthy of it As religion comes in at time front door mirth aad laughter will not go out of the back door It will not hop ple the childrens feet John will laugh just as loud and George will jump higher than he ever did before It will steal from the little ones neither ball nor bate nor hoop nor kite It will establish a family altar Angels will hover over it Ladders of light will reach down to it The glory of Heaven will stream upon it The books remembrance will record it and tides of everlasting blessedness will pour from it Not such a family altar as you may have seen where the prayer is long and chapter is read with explanation and the exercise keeps on until the childrens knees are sore and their backs ache and their patience is lost and for the seventh time they have counted all the rungs in the chair but I mean a family altar such as may have been seen in your fathers house You may have wan dered far off in the paths of sin and darkness but you have never forgotten that family altar where father and mother knelt importuning God for your soul That is a memory that a man never gets over There will be u hearty joyful family altar in every circle You will not have to go far to find Hannah rearing her for the temple or a grandmother Lois instructing her Timothy in the knowledge of Christ or a Mary and Martha and Lazarus gathered in fra ternal and sisterly affection or a at which Jesus sits as at that of Zaccheus or a home in which Jesus dwells as in the house of Simon the tanner The religion of Jesus Christ coming into the domestic

chiefly anxious to take care of itself and if we hear of want and squalor aqd heathenism outside we say What a pity we put our hands in our pockets and wo feel around for a piece and with a great flourish we put it upon the plnte and are amazed that the world is not converted in six weeks Sup pose there were a great war and there were 300000 soldiersjbut of all those 300000 soldiers excepting 10 men were in their tents or scouring their mus kets or cooking rations You would say Of course defeat must come in that case It is worse than that in the church Millions of the professed soldiers of Jesus Christ are ccoking rations or asleep in their tents while only one man here and there goes out to do battle for the Lord But says some one we are a great many mis5 ns and I think they will save the masses No not do it They are doing a magnificent work but every mission chapel is a confession of the disease and weakness of the church It is making a dividing line the classes It Is saying to the rich and to the well conditioned If can your pew rents come to main audience room It is to time poor man Your coat is too bad and ycur shoes are not good enough If you want to get to Heaven have to go the way of the mission chapel The mission chapel has become the kitchen where the hurchdoes its sloppy work There are hundreds arid thousands of churches in thJi country gorgeously built and supported tha even on bright andsunshiny days are full of wcrshipers and yet they are building mission chapels because by some expressed or implied regulation the great masses of the people are kept
