cratic presidential candidate does not abate in the least The strides being made by the Hon William Randolph Hearst is almost the sole topic conversation wherever pol iticians do congregate Almost ev ery day brings news of his capture of some more delegates or ofsome man of prominence in the party councils coming out for him The Parker men are thoroughly demor alized and his band wagon here is nearly ready to hangout a standing room only The old politicians of the party are dazed and do not know what to make of it Hitherto they have always had things their own way in fixing up conventions and sending delegates They slave just begun to realize that the people of the countryare taking hand in this affair and that they are not in it They roust ei IIx r 1r01t y rgctJUR over In their despair they are be ginning to talk of taking a cnndi date from the South and the names of Senator Joseph W Bailey of Texas and the Hon John Sharp Williams of Mississippi the brill iant floor leader of the Democracy in the House are mentioned In speaking of this matter to me the other day a prominent member of the House said Joh Sharp Will iams would make an ideal candi date andas ideal President of the United States if it were not for the fact that he would not be running two weeks before the Mississippi constitution would be the solo issue in the campaign And there you are C A E MorePopular With Home People One of our mountain exchang es has discovered that a paper in this part of Kentucky cannot succeed without a large amount of foreign support This may be the case with our contemporary but it is not so with the TIMES this paper being more popular with its home people It began its existence a little over eight years ago with a capital of only twentyfivo dollars and though during this time it has refused advertising propositions one af ter another from foreign firms whose business conflicts with that of the home merchant it has suc ceeded in raising avery enviable subscription list and has the distinction of operating the only power printing plant in the mountains and the paper is very popular with the people it is ever striving to please All of this has been accomplished in the face of the strongest 2 trav eling solicitors for both local papers and job printing and too by this paper contenting itself to remain in its own field and leav ing to its neighbors their territo ry And by so doing tho TIMES I has the consolation of making its success in an honorable Way and doing an act of fairness with all of our contemporaries which some of them have failed to render unto us

Easter the day noted in these parts for the feasting on eggs It is quite fortunate that they have dropped down so the common people can obtain a few at least Had the eventful day been fixed a few

for Congress He made a vicious attack on Con gressman Hopkins because the latter wants to build a bridge at the mouth of Two Mile in this county where the slack water has destroyed tho ford and conse
