An inspection of the Congressional Record shows that Mr. Cantrill deserted the President and the Democratic majority of Congress upon several of the "most vital mattenHKiichHare been before Congress in recent years. Congressman Cantrill claims to have "Loyally Supported the President." When the great Banking and Currency act was passed; the act which established Federal Reserve Banks and did more to place the financinl system of this country upon a firm, substantial and permanent basis than all other currency legislation within half a century, the record shows that Cantrill did not Vote. When the resolution was up for passage justifying the President in the employment of armed forces to enforce the demands made upon Victoriano Hucrta for unequivocable amends to the United States for the affronts and indignities committed against this Government by General Huerta, Cantrill did not Vote.

When the bill was up for passage to regulate the sale of convict labor goods, a bill which was advocated by organized labor and by various Prison Reform Associations, the record shows that Cantrill did not Vote. When the currcrcy bill was up for passage in the House, the record shows that Cantrill did not vote. The record shows that Cantrill voted against the bill granting a pension of $30 per month to veterans of the Mexican War who were disabled from work. The record shows that not only did Cantrill vote against Work on School House. Work "began Monday morning mi, the subdistrict school building near Powell's Valley church to take the place of the Darlings-villand Waltersville houses. Mr. Creech has- - the contract and is hustling the work along so that school may begin there in two weeks. The building will contain typ rooms and two teachers have been engaged. o the National Prohibition Bill, but he made a speech in Congress against the bill and franked it all over the country. Is this why the liquor people to a man are for him? When the appropriation Bill was before the House to pay tho actual traveling expenses of members of Congress in going to and returning once from each session of Congress instead of the old graft rate of twenty cents per mile, Mr. Cantrill voted against it. This net is now saving one hundred and seventy thousand dollars yearly to the people. And again, an inspection of the record shows that there were sixty-sev- en record votes taken during the third session of the sixty-thir- d Congress and Mr. Cantrill is recorded as not voting thirty times out of the sixty-seve- n.

The Republicans have a hot light on for Judge of Court of Appeals, and in Powell county it seems that Judge Gourley of our neighboring coun ty of Lee, will carry the day ; and that is the way it. should be.

Then all things being equal, it is just that Jddge Gour ley should get the almost entire Republican vote of Powell coun ty- - ine Democrats nave only one contest-- , ami that 'is in the Con der the circumstances. Nearly four months time has elapsed since the bonds were voted, and the only substantial thing to be seen is the increase of tax to pay. The people who expected their individual roads improved under promise, have been convinced that they can get this done more satisfactory by taking their tax money and putting it on their road themselves through the form of subscription. This they say they will do and fight the issu ance of the bonds,and payment of the road tax levied, through the Courts. There is not a better good roads advocate in Kentucky than the writer, but we are convinced that there is nothing in sight to reim burse the already burdened tax payer in Powell county in the way of roads for his increase of tax on account of the road bonds, 60 we shall line, ourselves up at F.

Come one, come all, como from nil parts of the county aud outside the county. You cannot afford to miss it. Miss Jessie 0. Yancey, Supt. pf Mason county schools, gave a fine address ou consolidation of schools at the Teachers' Institute. If every body hud heard her convincing argument and proofs and heard her tell of its marvelous work in Mason county and other places and what a greater work it was doing for the scholars of. Kentucky, we are sure that there would not be any op position to consolidation of schools. As soon as we can get good roads in Powell county we need to consolidate more schools. The writer was raised where all schools were centralized. A bet ter building was provided, better equipment for the school and better work was done by the scholars. They would as soon think of doing away with the centralizing of their schools is Ohio as they would to do away with their entire educational system. It has been the one factor that has put the school system of Ohio ahead of most other States in the Union. Wagons are sent out every morning within a radius pf five miles and the scholars are brought to these centralized schools. Of course they have the good roads there that we do not have here. But wherever it is possible let us centralize our schools in Kentucky and especially in Powell county. Powell is at a pretty low ebb in school attendance, but she is Improving. Conflicting Leases. According to the records, a por tion of the Old Cottagn Furnace boundary of land sold in Estill and Powell counties nt Commis sioner's sales about eight years ago, was not transferred, and tho title to this land still remains in the original Joe McKinuey heirs. In tho boundary omitted from the Commissioner's deed .there is 172 acres upon winch there are now nino producing wells. Mrs. 0. 0. Daniel, Mrs. Emma Mountz, Mrs. Belle Burgher and Mrs. J. E of this county, are Burgher, amoug the heirs. An oil opera'tor from Irvine was here Wednesday together with Morgan McKiuney, of Winchester, another one of tho heirs, getting a lease signed up by these heirs. Oil Well Drillings. An oil rig has been placed on the farm of Edward Hose neartown and is now going down to test the territory in that section. A well is also being sunk on the land of Mrs. Belle Watson, of this city. The land is near old Furnace aud in the neighborhood of two good wells. A few weeks ago an operator gave Charlie Clark, of Vaughn's Mill, $000 for a lease on his farm which adjoins the. land of his fa ther, Geo. W. Clark.

French and' wife are visiting friends and kiu folks Bro. in and around Stanton. French preached one of the strongest sermons that has ever been heard in the Christian church, Monday night. He spoke on "Eternity." He told what. kind of a life it took to get to heaven or hell, and that we were the one who made our own choice of these places. If we miss heaven it will be because of our own sins and faults and our neglect. Ho told how it took more than claiming to be a christian, with our names on a church book, to get to heaven; that it took a life of service; that we must grow in grace and must work in the great Kingdom of Christ, here on earth. It takes a different life than many are and if you miss heaven it will be because you have made thatyouw choice. now-livin-g, out drilling.

Malherly III Do not forget the Chautauqua to be held next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. It will be the greatest event ever held in Pow ell. Rev. French Monday night mentioned two of the speakers that he knows, told what splen uiu meu tney were, ana what a wonderful inspiration it will be to hear them. Eighteen leading men in Stuuton have guaranteed this Chautauqua, and we trust every body of Stanton and country will support it. We desire to make this an annu al feature and it depends on what patronage it receives as to whether this shall be or not. There will be three sessions a day. The morning sessions will be free. Noted speakers will address the crowds. The first day will bo Agricultural day and every farmer in the county should bo there whether lie attends any of the other sessions or not. We are informed there will be an exhibi tion of colts that day, so bring along your fine colts to be judged. If you hare any other farm products you want to exhibit as corn, g Elder D. H.
