probably will have opposi tion as secretary of the new Demo tJcraUc State Central and Executive Committees to fill the place now generallysunderstood that Robert Phillips for merly a member of the Board of Con trol will be a candidate against Mr Spears provided he can get enough strength The contest may produce a lively though friendly fight before the new committees Mr Phillip- 4s the representative of the friends y of Gov Beckham while Mr Spears is making the race because he wants rthe place Mr Spears slipped up on all others at Lexington In the excitement in cldent to the convention and the race theIcommitteesIHad to be elected was overlooked Mr Spears went to work as soon as the new members of the committees Were elected by the district conven I tions and in a short time he had se tcured enough pledges to give him the place Out of the 24 votes in the two committees he secured pled ges from eighteen so that It would seem that he had things his own r way Mr Phillips entered the race late He was agreed upon as the candidate of the Beckham forces and they are now lined up behind him although Tils name may be presented to the committees Mr Phillips allows the use of his name for he Is a loyal sup porter of the Beckham faction hav ing been one of the campaign man agers of Gov Beckham lost winter r When it was found that Mr Spears wasIfew days it has developed that Mr Phillips is an active candidate The reorganization of the county t committees all over the aStte will be en the third Monday in November according to the direction of the State if convention On that date the voters M will elect precinct committeemen and these committeemen then will elect a chairman This means a completer reorganization of every county com tmlttee in the State and there will be some lively fighting in some of the counties X In this county it is probable that the committee will not bo controlled by either the Beckhara or the anti Beckham faction but will be com posed of men who are not allied with elther side It is not known now i whether or not John D Grffin will bo a candidate for rejection as chair man itfJohn W McDonald X Dies In The South John W

James How would that sound to Kentucky ears as the team to oppose Taft and Sherman Bryan and James It fits pretty well and af ter the big convention in Denver that may be the ticket which the Demo crats may put forth to do battle with the Republicans Backed by the solid Kentucky delegation and also by the delegations from several other Southern States Ollle M James Congressman from the First Kentucky district will nominationsfor vicepresident on the ticket with W J Bryan and there Is at least a good chance that Mr James will be chosen as Mr Bryans running mate The Kentucky delegation is said to be enthusiastic for Mr James arid he will bring to him every Southern State anti many others which believe that the Southshould be recognized With this support It is believed that Mr James could win in the convention land it Is practically certain that his name will be presented Kentucky will present his claims to the conven tion and will vote 26 votes for him Mr James is a close personal friend of Mr Bryan and would be acceptable to the Nebraskan as a running mate The two men have been close together for many years and Mr James has been one of the strongest followers of Mr Bryan and Mr Bryana policies since the Chicago convention which nominated Mr Bryan in 189C The two have campaigned together allover this and other States and it is under stood that nothing would suit Mr Bryan better than to have the Con gressman from Kentucky nominated on the ticket with him In the coming campaign It is un derstood that Mr Bryan will not take the stump but will stay at home and it Is necessary to have somebody on the ticket with him who can speak In this respect Mr James would be an ideal candidate He is an orator o ability and can talk on national is sues all day without boring anybody In Congress Mr James has taken a leading position and if the Democrats had been in power he would have been one of tho conspicuous figures in the national capitol The South has clamored for recognition on tho Democratic ticket for some time but has never secured It and It is thought by many that the time has now come to recognize the Solid South which votes the Democratic ticket regardlesaly No better selection could be made than Mr James and he would carry Kentucky by 30000 majority with ease No marlin Kentucky Is more popular today than Is Mr James and no man would bring more strength to the national ticket FRANKFORT MAN WINS FIRST PLACE AT TRAPS While Woolfolk Henderson of Lexx ington was winning honors at the national trap shooting contest In Columbus Ohio a

Plans Laid At Conference With Walter son and Bryan Committees Named At Secret Meeting Of The Leaders Of The Race Go To Louisville and Lincoln To Discuss How To Beat Taft DEMOCRATS WILL OPEN DOOR TO THE COLORED MAN Special Correspondence Louisville June 26What has long been Interpreted to be merely a dis satisfaction of the colored vote to wards the Republican party has been crystallzed into a real split the extent of which is bounded only by the confines of the Nation and the force of which is centered this week in Louisville and Lincoln Neb It will be remembered that long before the Republican convention in Chicago leading negroes from all sections of the country met at Philadelphia and sent up a national protest against the nomination of Secretary Taft for the high office of President at the same time threatening a bolt if Mr Taft was made the standard bearer of the Republican party By the white priests of the Republi can party this was regarded as mere buncomb Having held the colored vote In line In the past by a few honey eel words in the platform they laid the sweet unction to their souls that by the same system of perfunctory praise vague promises and declatna tory appeal to party fealty they could line the colored vote up to the Re publican booth again this fall But the Republican leaders had learned something The menace of Demo cratic proscription which had so long been dangled before the eyes of the negro voters by the Republican big wigs was found to be a merefigment Only as hewers of wood and drawers of water and deliverers of votes had the colored voter ever been greeted by the party which demanded only service without making any substan tial returns But when they threaten ed to bolt Mr Taft this time they meant Immediately after the nomination of the Ohio man therefore the lead ers of the colored citizens held a se err t meeting in Chicago and appointed two committees to formulate the plans of an organized fight Recoi ulzlny Henry Watterson as the leader of the Democrats of the South with n vast influence over the party throughout the Nation and knowing him tp be the sincere friend of the colored race one of the committees came to Louisville this week to consult and advise with Mr Watterson as to the proper course to pursue The other committee went to Lincoln Neb to advise with William J Bryan who will be the Democratic nom inee for president opposing Mr Taft In the committee which came to Louisville were colored men who have the confidence of the race and who are of national repute at least one bishop being among their num berIt is significant that in the Wednes day issue of the CourierJournal the following is the closing paraifraph ot n column editorial characteristically Watterson Give us a plank then Mr Plat II 1 form Maker at Denver or a resolution in convention opening the doors to the colored brother and no matter what is the Issue good will come of it The entire editorial breathes good will to the colored brother and will bear reprinting as follows Have the Republican Party and the Colored Brother come to a parting of the ways Except for the negro vote four of the great States of the NorthNew York Ohio Indiana and Illinoiswould be hopelessly Demo cratic If they please to have It so the negroes can defeat Taft and elect Bryan The case of the black people against the President and through the President against the Secretary of War on account of the Brownsville affair may or may not be a good case It is not for us to sit in Judgment But the negroes have this for a case against the Republican party that It has transferred the ownership of the black man from his old masters of the South to itself and under this changed but not different bond ot servitude that it makes him as much a hewer of wood and a drawer of water as he ever was In this presidential campaign he has the opportunity If he cares to use it to administer to his new masters a salutary lesson and as it were to discipline the Republicans touching both their Interest and their duty The CourierJournal would not mislead its fellow citizens of African descent as to this or as to any matter affecting their welfare It has been always their friend but upon grounds higher than those of party They owe their freedom to the upheaval of wqr not to any man or body of men They owe their enfranchisement to the selfish exigencies of politics In proportion as the Republicans of the North made trouble between tho blacks and the whites of the South they did a grlevious wrong to both races but this wrong was more hurtful to the blacks than to the whites It has resulted In very nearly extin guishing a suffrage which whilst it lasted proved a curse rather than a blessing to both races A new generation of blacks has come upon the scene These blacks are better educated At the North they understand the situation What do they owe the Republicans In our opinion nothing If they ever expect to help their brethren in the South this seems a good chance to do it because to the white people of the South they must look for substantial help and real advantage and every thing which allays race prejudice and brings the two peoples nearer togeth er in friendly and neighborly inter course will inure to the profit of tho weaker in the life struggle The CourierJournal has never Continued on last page NO JURE DAILIES L1 Will Be Allowed Convicts In The Penitentiary Papers Will Be Excluded In Prison After July 1 Col Mudd Takes Steps To Promote Discipline RESULT OF CHARGES BY MR CHINA As a resurt of the controversy be ween George Ohlnn formerly war den at the penitentiary and the Board of Prison Commissioners the convicts at tile penitentiary will not be allowed to read the daily papers aWer July 1st The order was issued yesterday and the papers which have ubscribers in the prison were told that they must cut the convicts off their lists Col E E Mudd the war den at the prison says he found it necessary to cut off the daily papers as the convicts have been much ex ited over tile controversy concerning he treatment of the prisoners as charged by Mr Chinn and the men vere difficult to control The direct esult of the agitation over their reatment caused the men in the prison to form a plot io escape and t was frustrated Just in time to pre vent a break for liberty The convicts have been allowed to take the daily papers something that is not allowed In any penitentiary in the country and they were kept posted on what was doing in the world They read all about the Investigation of the prison and became restless as a result of the agitation concerning them When the last publication of charges by Mr Chinn came Col Mudd decided that there was nothing to be done except cut off the daily papers The men will still be allowed to take their home papers and a weekly but toe big city dallies will be excluded edYeggmen and professional burglars are able to communiate with their als through the medium of the dailies nd this is another reason that Col Mudd cut off the papers He said the professional crooks Were able to keep posted on the doings of the out side world and keep track of their pals through the papers and he also thought it best to shut them off from this information The only paper which had a large circulation among the convicts was the Louisville Her ald which had 400 subscribers in the prison The Louisville Courier Journal had one subscriber and the Louisville Times only a dozen Re garding the new order Col Mudd said lit was done simply to promote dis cipline among the convicts and enable us to handle the men better I have investigated and find that in no other prison In this country are the con victs allowed to read the dally papers- I do not want to be harsh but the constant agitation of the way the pris on Is managed causes trouble among the men and there was nothing else to do but cut out the dailies The convicts will be permitted to take their country papers and can still take weeklies but no more dailies will be allowed GROVER LAST REST In accordance with the wishes of Mrs Cleveland the funeral of Grover Cleveland Friday afternoon at 6

lively performance and the one doorkeeper who is allowed oy the Constitutinofwillubiquitous for there are seven en trances to the chamber All of these seven entrances are from the halls and unless each door is guarded it will be impossible to keep the chamber from being crowded so that the members will have a hard time find ing room to sit In case anything ex citing is expected in the House the spectators would flock to the House and would fill up the floor of the House unless they are stopped questionI g when it meets again The Consti tution says that there shall be onefdoorkeeper of the House whose duty fit it shall be to attend to the door and see to it that only those entitled to the floor are admitted There is no provision made for any additional doorkeepers but when the House meets in its new quarters there will have to be a doorkeeper and six as sistants and this means six new postUtions for which the hungry can scrap The doorkeeper will have charge of the squad of doorkeepers under him and the seven will have each a door to attend Under the present ar rangement only one doorkeeper is necessary because there is only one r door through which entrance to therx hall can be secured James E Stone clerk of the Housepwho has been in Frankfort this week went over the new Capitol and dis covered that there are seven doors which will have to be watched He x also found other things which will have to be changed The architestzdesigned a large room and a smaller one for the Speaker who does not need any room at all and left the clerk with a small one whereon hefneeds a large one It is probable that the Capitol Commission willUmake a reassignment of the rooms so as to give some of the officers of the House and Senate more room The House and Senate chambers are r said to be too small too and the House chamber especially is going to be crowded when one hundred desks and other necessary articles of furniture have been put into place r rGov Willson Helps

merrymaking All dignity was thrown to the winds and all were out for a good time The college men showed their heroic efforts to rescue a little girl from a burning house near the scene of their outing They took the little one out of the S burning cottage but she died from her burns Gov Willson applauded the efforts y of the collegians The hat was passed and a large purse was presented the unfortunate family Gov Wlllson a graduate of 69 made n delightful speech during the- festivities and was roundly applaud ed by the boys r PAGE TWO SATURDAY JUNE 27 1908 r fiMY POLICIES Repudiated By Convention At Chicago Says Bryan In Discussing The Platform Distinct Victory For Reactionaries WiJ OnS MORE TAFFY HANDED TilE NEGRO Calling the Republican platform a Rilent repudiation of almost ever Rooseveltian principle William Jennings Bryan completed a summary 1 of the work of the Chicago Conven tion Mn Bryan in this summary wsaid you read the Republican plat krform If not you ought to read it The contest in the Republican party between the reformer and thp standpatter is for the present at an I end with the standpatter in the sail dIe The platform is a silent repudi Jatlon of nearly every promise of re form that the President and his fol lowers have given to the country r It begins wltl an eulogy of the Pres- IdenttI In no other period since the days of Lincoln according to the platform has there been such mighty progress in those ideals of government which make for justice equality and fair dealing among menTheir most exalted servant repre American people have found a voice A reflection is here implied on previous Republican Presidents who have failed to furnish a voice for highest aspirations of the American people ss Praise President Not Policies Teir most exalted servant repre sents the best aims and worthiest purposes of all his country Ameri can manhood has been lifted to a noble sense of duty and obligation Without asking why the Republican party has held office and divided the official salaries among its partisans so long without giving us a Presi dent who represents the best aims and worthiest purpose of the peo pIe without asking why no other Republican President in recent days has lifted American manhood to a noble sense of duty and obligation we may ask why it is that the Re publican Convention spends so much time in expressing praise of the Pres- Ident and gives so little attention to l the specific indorsement of the things he has advocated But the President must feel that he is the only Repub dean deserving of praise The recent Congresses according to the platform have been full of patriots and the Re publican legislators have been keep- Ing step in the forward march to bet ter government What does thePres ident think of being bracketed with Republican Senators and members of Congress in this indiscriminate praise Nothing is said of the con spiracy formed among the Republi can leaders of the Senate to defeat the Presidents railroad rate bill intimation is here given that he sent several messages to Congress in a vain endeavor to get the lower house to take up the reforms which he was urging The President must resent the fact that the platform expresses no gratitude to the Democratic mem bers and Senators for supporting him when the Republicans deserted him sss p Glaring Inconsistency d Not only does the platform fail to give the Democrats credit for helping the President in every effort to lift up American manhood to noble sense oj duty and obligation but it actually condemns the filibuster which the Democratic minority instituted and carried on for the express purpose of d compelling Republicans to carry out the Presidents recommendations Williams leader of the minority time and again called upon the Republi cans to furnish thirty votes in support of the Presidents policies and pledged the Democratic minority to furnish the remaining number of votes necessary to carry out several of the Presidents recommendations and yet the men who wrote the platform presume upon the ignorance of the public and complain that the fill buster prevented the enactment of many wholesome and progressive lawsThat writers of the platform eo peclally commend the passage of the emergency currency bill a bill which combined two features one of whIch had been rejected by tho Senate and ttho other by the House So long as there was a chance for a discussion there was sufficient Republican oppo sition to condemn both features of the bill but under the influence of a few financiers the bill was rushed through during the closing hours with all of the bad features restored and all of the good ones eliminated How proud the Republican bosses in the Senate and House feel to have their work thus indorsed by a Repub- lIcan National Convention The plank demanding a permanent change in the currency system is general enough to permit the Repub lican orators to advocate in h s- ectiuntry the system most popular there and sufficiently indefi nite to enable Congress to do what ever it pleases or nothing without violating any pledge ass Trust Plank Disappointing- The trust plank must prove a dis appointment to every Republican who has come to understand the iniquity of the trusts There is no demand for a rigid enforcement of the law there is no suggestion that the criminal clause which has not yet brought the trust malefactors within the walls of a penitentiary should be called in to use The platform says that the law can be strengthened by amend ments which will enlarge the super vision of the general governmentbut these amendments are not mentioned and there Is nothing In this plank of the platform that can be appealed to to secure any real improvement in the law If the President with all of his strenuosity has not been able to enforce the criminal law against a single trust what progress with such an antitrust plank as that Inserted in the Republican platform There is a plank in the platform in favor of such legislation and su pervision as will prevent the future overissue of stocks and bondg by interstate carriers This is good but it is coupled with the advocacy of a pooling ar rangement which makes a large con cession to the railroads without ex acting any security to the public for the convention voted down an amend ment proposed by Senator Lafol lettes followers authorizing an en largement of the powers of the In terstate Commerce Commission sss Taffy For Negroes The negro comes in for his quad rennial quota of taffy He is remind ed that the Republican party gave him freedom and citizenship and in this there is the Implied warnlngthat he must not use his citizenship against the party that gave it to him It boasts that he is indebted to that party for his political rights and for his progress In intelligence industry etc The Republican party has made political capital out of the negro for more than a third of a century In many of the close States it has won its elections by the negro vote and in the States where it has had power it has never treated the negro any better than he has been treated by the Democrats In other words in the Northern States the Democrats without receiving any support from the negro vote have been as friendly to him as the Republicans In the South the Democrats have furnI lied a large part of the money to pro vide that education of which the Re publican platform boasts And yet in each recurring campaign the Re publican leaders have attempted to appeal to the prejudices of the negro by parading before him the restric lions placed upon suffrage in some of the Southern States They have been in control of the Government with the exception of a few years for now nearly half a century and they have controlled the courts as well as the other branches of the Government IJ the Democrats have dohe anything that they ought not to have dqne why have not the Republicans nrevpnted it Cn 1Only Want His Vote lW y is it that the Republican leadprs are only solicitious about the cplored man when voting time comes The Republican platform says We condemn all devices which have for- heirt real aim his the negros disr franchisement for reasons of color alpne as unfair unAmerican and repugnant to the supreme law of the land when the Republican Supreme Court is supposed to stand guard over the supreme law of the land There is scarcely a Republican platform that does not approach the negro with the assumption that his only interest is in the suffrage laws of the South No Republican speaker discusses economic questions before a colored audience and yet the negro Is Interested in every economic ques ion that affects the white man With most of the negroes raising cotton and scarcely any employed in factories a high tariff would be hard to justify before a negro audience It is an insult to his intelligence as well as to his patriotism to sugges- tS the Republican leaders constantly do that lie

time the r boys from Lexington had failed to cross the home plate while Kennedys sluggers had made three runs Second baseman Steele landed a good long fly to right field which Sheets missed and which was two feet Inside of the fair line but the Lexington bunch claimed It was a foul and they at once proceeded to raise a great big howl Umpire New man called it a fair ball Manager Sheets was ordered off the diamond but he refused to go and the Umpire called Officer Reagan who escorted him to the bench Right here it rIc1 J lookej like there was going to be some l thing doing as the captain of the

a fine of 25 This iir matter will probably be brought up before the managers of the Blue Grass League at a meeting here Sunday Ir it took the sporting editor of the Anderson News two columns to tell f how the Lawmakers defeated the Dig tillers here last week They claim that they were robbed of the victory rby Umpire Newmans raw decisions We cant agree with the Lawrenceburg J bunch The fact is that the Law thewathortr oughbred and they were simply out- classedjr at every stage of the game There is no better umpire In the State than Tommy Gainey Newman and he knows the game from begin ning to end and we believe ho is con rsclentlo1 in oll of his rulings no mat ter who It hurts When the visit ing clubs think ruey can hand him tl a lemon right there they are badly fooled Some of the teams of the

The umpire says ho did not hear It tip and called it a strike If It was a vfoul why did the Richmond catcher attempt to put the runner out If the catcher did not hear the ball tip the bat who on earth could hear it The Shelbyville boys will be here Sunday with their new team and they say that they are out for blood nnd are going to make Frankfort look like monkeys The Lawmakers are not asleep by a long shot and have put in a great deal of their time this week getting our boys in shape for this game and are ready to give them a warm reception The fans of Shelbyville will run a special train here on that day and say they will bring between five hundred and a thousand rooters to help win the game Old Hutch says he will have his gang of local rooters in good trim by that time and will show the boys from Shelbyville how to root some Lexington knew she was going against a hard proposition when she played Frankfort yesterday but did not think she would have to play ten mennine good ball placers and one umpire who outclassed all the rest of the Frankfort aggregation said a Lexington fan who saw the game yes terdayLexington Herald We will agree with the wild and woolly fan from Lexington that toy had a hard proposition and nine GOOD ball players to go up against but when It comes to the umpire we will have to call his hand Umpire Newman called what the Lexington bullies claimed a foul a fair ball and by actual measurement It was 22 12 inches inside of the fair line Every time the guys from Lexing ton are defeated they put up a howl that they were robbed by the um pire The fact is they are simply outclassed by every team In the Blue Grass League and they attempt to bully their opponents at any and all times The best thing Lexington can do is to quit kicking and get a ball team One Lexington man was willing to bet 100 to nO and leave It to any honest person in Frankfort that the Umpire Newman called fair was a foul says the Lexington Herald and It was strange his bet was not taken We dont know who It was that gave the sporting editor of the Herald this dope but we do know that no such bet was offered as there were hun dreds who would have taken It and besides presented the man with a new suit of clothes that was fool ish enough to make such a bet In a slugging match Monday Shel byvllle defeated Richmond by the score of 8 to 6 Shelbyville had the game with ease until the ninth Inning when Hemphlll walked two men which with a couple of hits scored four runs for Richmond The features of the game was the batting and base running of Kraher and A Long and also the fielding of P Long and Varnadore and Kraher for Shelby ville The Thoroughbreds of Lexington- can outshine any team in tho State of Kentucky when it comes to klckr Ing They have a

the best of their ability for the honors of the day played a game of base balj Thursday afternoon at Glenwood Park The teams represented the State officials and the officials of Frankfort and Franklin county The State officials won by a score of 21 to 20 but they had the fight of their lives and but for Lee Huntsman and his brilliant running and Gov Coxs slugging ant tprining the game would have gone to the locals A large crowd saw the grime which was played for the benefit of the Kings Daughters Hospital and a neat sum was realized for that worthy entire The score Is a fair In dication cf the game but the errors really wore not plentiful and theta was some good playing done Lee Huntsman was the feature of the game unquestionably Nothing like his running was over seen any where His legs looked like he was making fifty miles an hour but his body did not travel faster than four miles when he was going at top speed Mr Huntsman Is a clerk In the Audi tars office He Is short and not thin Also his legs are not longIn fact they are short When he sets ore down In running itls advanced only an Inch or so and to get anywhere at all Mr Huntsman has to pick ip his feet about six times as fast as any ordinary longlegged man and ho can pick iiy those feet pretty fast He actually stole home once In tho game How ho did It has not yut been discovered but he did It He tried it again later on but was thrown out Mr Urn man played only three innings III in those three innings he made the circuit of the bases three times and then retired from the game spent and capacitated from further effort He sank down by the water bucket and thank Ice water for nil an hour Tho game was Interesthg for there was almost always a chance for either team to wu nnd tho players were trying to win all

doiiblerack street car line It t is necessary thai passengers should i be burred up on ono side but on a shi gle track line there is certainly no need of it The Frankfort cars are tl barred always on

side which Is barred If the bars are t going to be put down at all they should be on the side where there is danger But not In its wisdom the street car company bars the left side and coming back from the parle tho right side of the car JstiEJigeroi J on account of the poles being close to the track Why not take awaj the bars entitrely They are a nuisance t and serve no good purpose This suggestion

schet ule With the Courier Journal and Mry Watterson In line and using thlrtee ii inch guns on the Republicans it cer 1 tainly looks good for Bryan Mr Wai tt terson turned loose one of his big rguns the other day It was a two column doubleleaded editorial that iwas a scorcher and left the Republi can presidential nominee out on a I limb The result of Mr Watterson trip to Lincoln Is a perfect under standing between Bryan and the edl i FI tor of the CourierJournal and means that the paper will support Bryan for r all it is worth this time and with the t t confidence of victory in November for a cause which one knows ifFightingto be and when one believes one will win enables one to fight a great deal better and Mr Wattersor smells victory Therefore he is put t ting his whole heart into the fight and the editorial page of the Courier Journal will be well worth lido ev ery day this summer Ev ry negro in the country will be given to understand that the Sher 1man who was nominated for vice r president is the same Sherman who marched through Georgia and thew will be told that it was Sherman the vice presidential nominee who set r then free This is the way they try I to corral the negro vote but they may find it a harder task than usual for the negroes do not care much fo Mr Taft Sherman will serve an other purpose too He is close to Wall street and Is one of those bloat ed bondholders of whim Mr Bryan was wont toI talk lie is expected to shake down the big bugs in the mono ey center and get a pile for the cam paign fundIActing Governor Cox is as demo cratic a governor as any who ever occupied the executive office The door to his private office stands open all the time and there Is no ceemony when any one wants to see him One walks In and the Governor always has a cordial welcome for everybody the poor as well as tho rich Ho Is a student of human nature and under stands men as well as measures and Frankfort Is always glad to see him He is quick to decide and seldomI makes mistakes In fact the Governor is every inch a man and if b chance the Republicans get the 0 flees again we hope Gov Cox wiltI be the man who will be Governor Grover Cleveland was one of UC great men of this country and he had the courage of his convictions For this he suffered and It cost him not only the election as president In 1888 but also cost him the popular esteem it wr r 896 The DemdTOltlc par ty showed Itself ungrateful by abusing the only man since the war who was able win a presidential race for them Mr Cleveland showed that he was a big man by refusing to allow the slanders and shafts of malice which were hurled at him to affedt him It is said that Mr Bryan is not Ing to make any speeches during this campaign but will stay at home and let delegations come to him Maybe so But we think the only way to keep Mr Bryan from talking is to throttle him Still they are Thiildii n trolley line out to Mr Bryans home and that looks like there WR3 some truth in tho report that the campaign is to be different from the previous ones Gov Willson has received another degree and has eaten with the elect at Harvard He seems to have forgotten about the old Skate of Ken tacky

Mr Cleveland Senator Lindsay said Mr Cleveland was In Iny estimation the ablest man who has occu pied the presidential chair since my acquaintance with public affairs began He was Democratic In his In

Activity arVOTE TO BE TAKEN IN THE FAIL The Rev T J Spencer pastor and the officers of the Central Christian church the largest and most fash ionable church of that denomination in Lexington after the services Sun i3day night submitted to the congrega tion the proposition that lukewarm members who do not regularly attend or contribute to the church shall no longer have the right and privilege of being members In good standing and shall not be given letters entitling them to full membership to churches In other communities but shall be placed on a probationary list from which they may be taken back Into full membership should they show a tendency to overcome their delhi quencies As far as is known here this is the most radical action ever proposed by a church in Kentucky or possibly elsewhere in the United States and on account of its far reaching effects and importance the board of church officers who submitted the proposition suggested that a vote upon it should not be taken by the congregation until next autumn thus giving full opportunity for its considerationThe submitted by the board of officers are as follows FIrstWhereas one of the greatest calamities in a nominally Christian community is to lower the standard of the church and- SecondWhereas Central church has in its membership a number of persons who show no Interest In Its work do not attend its services do pot celebrate the Lords Supper ob serve the Lords day nor contribute to the support of the gospel nor throw throw their influence on the side of bust and the church and Third Whereas the ongregatinn through too long forbearaneii is in danger of unfaithfulness to tlem a d disloyalty to Christ if it continues i to recognize them as in good standing when they are not and can not be except they repent therefore belt Fourth Resolved That a new r lowship register of the church be made In which only the names of members shall be recorded who are r active or are members in spirit as well as In name FifthResolved Also that the names of those not active and earnest shall be left behind on the old record but not transferred to the new I SixthResolved That such persons shall not be entitled to regular church letters as they are not now should they wish to withdraw or transfer their membership elsewhere They may however receive such cer tiflcates as will declare the truth in kindness concerning their church standIngEleventhResolved further That In determining what names shall be written or printed in the new register record shall be had to the following questions 1 Do they show an interest in the tchurchf 2 Do they show a reputation for J honesty and morality j 3 Do they attend the church ser- 1vices as they ought to attend 4 Do they observe the Lords sup- pert as they should observe it f 5 Do they contribute faithfully for the support and spread of the Gospel 6 If faithful In the past do they now promise sincerely to do better EighthResolved That the church will earnestly pray for and admonish the unfaithful and seek patiently to win them to Christ and to the church and that upon their material desiro and purposk to be faithful their names shall be entered upon the fel lowship list NinthResolved further That the elders be and are hereby requested to so group and organize the members calling faithful members to assist them that all shall be better shep herded and brought into closer acquaintance with the Good Shepherd and with one another TenthResolved That every her vhall bo furnished with a mem1 l these resolutions and that six months shall be given in which the church with Its elders and deacons shall make strenuous efforts to win the lukewarm and discouraged back to their first love before the new fel lowship register shall become the current working

MOVEMENT ON FOOT AT LEXING TON TO ESTABLISH NEW INDUSTRY In the hope of saving the horse dustry of Kentucky which suffered greatly because of the passage of anti betting laws in New York a movement was started at Lexington to secure the consent of the Government to establish a remount station there and breed thoroughbred horses for use of cavelry officers breeding and training them there It is believed that farms of any size desired by the Government can be purchased at a lower price now than for many years and the matter will be likely taken up at once The only argument against the use of thoroughbreds as warhorses is said to be their nervousness but it is believed this can be easily trained out of them- onsumptlvcs made Comfortable Foleys Honey and Tar has cured many cases of

CountiesA- CTINGGOVERNOR COX ORDERS REDUCTION OF ONEon IN FORE- Under orders from Acting Gov Cox a reduction of onethird has been made in the number of soldiers now in the field in the counties where the night riders haves been active and the number will be further rccluc J shortly or just as soon as the men can be spared The Acting Governor directed the Adjutant General to dis pense with as many soldier as possi ble and as a result onethird of the force in Westrn Kentucy has been ordered home A reduction was made in Bracer county several days ago a company being relieved of duty Gov Cox does not believe In the use of the military except when absolutely necessary and he thinks that the soldiers who have been scattered over the State during the night rider troubles can be sent home In many Instances without Interfering with the operation of the law When Gov Cox took up the duties of Governor this last time his mst act was to call In the Adjutant General and say to him that the number of soldiers could be reduced he thought He asked the Adjutant General to write to the officers In command In the various sections of the State where the soldiers have been on duty and ascertain from them how many men could be reliev ed of duty The Adjutant General wrote these letters and reported to Gov Cox that the number In Western Kentucky could be reduced onethird without danger Gov Cox believes that the troubles with the night riders are practically over now and as the use of the mili tary has been exceedingly expensive to the State he thinks the soldiers can be recalled He does not desire to handicap the authorities In the counties where they think the soldiers are needed but in many instances he thinks the soldiers can be caned in and he is going to try to relieve all the troops In the State from active duty just as soon as possible The Governor says that this does not mean that the soldiers will not be ordered out if the occasion requires it and the county officials ask for them but simply means that he does not want any more on duty than are absolutely essential If the occasion should demand the soldiers will be ordered back to the districts from which they are being taken now 9 a Will Ask The Legislature To Make Investigation GEORGE CHINN NOT WILLING TO LET PRISON MATTER STAY QUIET When the next Legislature meets in regular session if the matter cannot be gotten

rifle or revolver went out to the range Saturday afternoon and had a try at the targets The Governor made a score of 40 at 200 yards out of a possible 50 and scored 39 at 300 yards These scores were made with a new rifle which is harder to shoot that an old one and the first time he had tried the target for several years Gov Cox is a good shot with a rifle but has never had much practice at target shooting at the die tances which prevail on the range He surprised those soldiers who saw him shoot as they did not expect him to touch the target D J McNamara Makes Hit With Pictures The

OnlyI Small Estate INCOME SAID TO HAVE BEEN 10000 A YEARWORRIED OVER CONDITION Washington June 25There are conflicting stories here as to what Mr Cleveland left to his family Some say that they are amply provided fry anti others that he left but little it anything Among the latter Is the Washington Star which says today Contrary to the general belief Mr Cleveland was a poor man For some season which does not appear the opinion was generally held that he wus 2or3e sed of a considerable es tate and that he would lave his family well off whon he ded In tiuirifs made yesterday developed the fact that Mr Cleveland tar from be big well off was poor and left to his family unless his close personal friends are entirely mistaken prac tically nothing but the house at Princeton and the place at Buzzards BayWhen Mr Cleveland left the White House the last time and for many years thereafter said one of hh in timates yesterday he had together wth his wife about 10000 a year His income often worried hint exceedingly especially as he saw hia family erowjng up about him and knew their future was not aj well provided for as he could wish He would not accept anythinr from nla friends He was extremely proud on that sC tebut those who knew him best luew that his circumstances worried hipi not a little lie did not live in New York for tho sole reason that he could not live there as cheaply as he could in New Jersey and maintain the style he felt would be demanded of him When he became one of the trustees of the Equitable Life his income was added to somewhat I think he obtained something like 5000 for that work He was the only member of the board of three who was paid but un like the others he gave nearly his entire time to the work of the Insurance company Had ho lived a little longer his cir cumstances would have been much Improved All his friends rejoiced when he became the head of the as Aj S7o sociation of Life Insurance Presi dents with a salary of 2500 a year for they knew his circumstances However he held that place only u year so that although there had been an improvement it was not sufficient to make a great deal of difference- I know a great deal about Mr Clevelands affairs and my belief is it will be found that he left little if anything to his family outside of the house at Princeton and the furnish ings in it and the place at Buzzards Bay He had some little money In addition but I dont believe it was very much My recollection is that it was on deposit in the Knicker bocker Trust Company That fact came out at the time that company closed Its doors Caleb Powers May Marry In Pennsylvania REPORT HAS IT THAT HE IS COURTING MISS ELEANOR BONHAM OF YORK YORK PA June 25Caleb Powers lUte Kentuckian recently released frpm prison Is In

right r t ORGANIZED DOLT DY NEGROS Continued from first page sought to make a party profit out of the negro It is his friend and his neighbor his fellowcitizen and hb fellowChristian The whites cannot prosper if the blacks languish We are whites and blacks in the same boat and we must sit fair and row steady If we expect to be happy and to make progress The white man should want noth- Ing of the benefits of government for himself and his children which he is not ready to allow the black man for himself and his children We are mu tually dependent We are bound to live together We cannot get away from one another Hence a good working and living understanding is the basis of the common interest The black people long ago learned that the Republican party has no use for them except to vote them Although forty years they have been paying a debt they but half owe Meantime the whites of the South have been aiding them in substantial ways If they should turn about now and vote the Democratic ticket at tho North or divide their vote thoy would be pursuing p wise policy by rebuking the Republicans making fair weather with the Democrats and asserting at once their Intelligence and their Independence The Democratic party in conven tion assembled next week at Denver could very well afford to Invite their cooperation In defeating a combine of machine politicians and trust mng nates seeking to make slaves of us all white and black alike We the whites of the South have always claimed and claimed truly that we are the real friends of the blacks Let the colored leaders consider this and let the Democratic leaders think about it If the Colored Brother should turn the scales of tho coming election in the four great States of New York Ohio Indiana and Illinois he would kill two birds with one stone bring the Republicans to a re- alIzIng sense and place the Democrats In his debt This would strengthen his position and advance his future Give us a plank then Mr Platform Maker at Denver or a resolution in convention opening the doors to the Colored Brother and no matter what the issue good will come of it o t I understand progress is being mndn in tho movement to have only one candidate in Louisville for the Demo ratio nomination fof Congress It is t r I believed that Mr Sherley will have no opposition and that Mr Newcomb will receive Mr Sherleys

clubs all more or less allied with the different Dem ocratic factions but at a recent meet iIIder a single head A commit rtee t appointed to draw up a constitution and bylaws and one of the cardinal r
