420 posts or towns in tho Philippines that the U S Army occu postTheand ha 1000 islands Strange to say that tho exact number ot islands has not been agreed upon some of them have not been inhabited and the population iis variously estimated at from 8000003 toI 10000000 Tho Filipinos appear to have no con centrated army attempting to hold any certain territory and hence there are no great battles no decisive battles as oc cur in most wart but when American solders are sent out from any of these 420 posts they are sure to bo pounced upon by Filipino soldiers rout the enemy and sometimes the squad is captur ed some killed and some wounded The reports of tho American Generals show these facts The Filipinos obey an or ganized central authority supposed to be Aguinaldo though he is reported as killed or captured from time to time About this state of facts has been existing for about two years and when the end will be no man knows General AIcArthur our comujaudinir Goners4 reports to the VarDepartmeTittha he needs and will need for the next two years abouuGOOOO soldiers He should bo the best judge of the needs of the situation The loss of the American soldiers ac cording to the

to con vince the people that they the candi dates are patriotic selfsacrificing in being willing to servo in official capacity for the best interests of the people and secondly to learn to believe that theirs competitors will not resort to trickery ways that are dark and peculiar to pre Tout the ono or the other from the priv ilego of serving tho people for the best interest of the people The pending Legislative race has provoked such a condition For more than forty years within the COURIERS personal knowl edge tho counties of Htekman and Full ton have by courtesy alternated the 3 Representative and though aspirants H from time to time in pursuance of iudifi yidual ambitious have attempted to abrogate this time honored custom thoQ people have uniformly ratified and per 1 petuatod it This race it so happens H that it is Fulton Countys time to havekjj the Representative that in pursuances M of this custom the Fulton County Dcm M ocratic Committee passed resolutions endorsing 1 Mr Mott Ayers and that the H committees of tho two counties met in n joint session at Clinton and called Leg gj I Islative primaries in the precincts Fob H ruary 2 and at Fulton February 4 to H declare a Democratic nominee and the tj threo candidates Flatt Egbert andffl Ayers submit their claims to the Con H vention as regularly and authoritatively w called g But now conies the howl that the Ful E ton County Committee ISCIa machine H at work to secure the nomination of H Ayers and in some way thwart the will H of the people but exactly how when H Hickmau County is the larger does not M appear unless a portion of Hickman I County votes with Fulton The Hick 1 man County candidates Ecbort and I Platt are well known have been before Ithe public frequently and for this rea 1 son it is not clear w11an early conven H Lion should be antagonistic to their in interestsR H conrtwy Hickmnn County has 2PirS JJ WtfBcrt have sorae proper evidence aHf to a certain Fulton County man being the choice of the Fulton County Demo crats and the Fulton County Commit tee we presume sought to give this ex pr lion by their endorsement of Mr Ayers The sum and essence of tins kicking appears to bo that Ayers is a member of the State Executive Commit tee and has earnestly vigorously and enthusiastically discharged the duties of tho position to which these same dem ocrats assigned him and that others want to be the Representative Ayers Egbort and Matt are regula tion democrats of the free silver 16 to 1 unlimited independent Bryan or bust hell for sartin stamp honorable and worthy gentlemen and therefore no political differences between them only the issue of Countys time and on this Mr Ayers is clearly entitled to tho honor He is in line with the majority sen J timent in close touch with the partys leadership is earnest and enthusiastic in r tho cause is as capable as any of his competitors possesses splendid abilities as a journalist and business man and whv should he not enjoy the honor he has so gallantly won TUB COURIER has not sought to take any part in party management or control since 1890 when the Republicans stole the historic position of tine Democ in regInone tho less TILE COURIER wants a Democrat elected to represent Hickmau and Fulton counties and one that is in active sympathy with the majority sentiment of the party Each of the can didates answer the description but If the kickers keep on kicking and at imagining wrongs tho morale and oven success of the party may be endangered The just and magnanimus thing to do is for Hickman County to stop the strife and contention by nominating the Ful ton County man TIlE COURIER has not discussed such questions for several years because to shoot an arrow oer the house mIght wound our friends SMALL POX

American sovereigns have been under the impression that tho Presidential jjctUm was held last November and that McKinleyJand Roosevelt were then elected President and VicoPresident but as a matter of fact and law the FrMUUntial election was held last Monday Jan 14 when the electoral colleges met in the respective State capitals and proceeded to the election of a President and VicePresident The election last November was simply to choose electors in the different States who should meet oh the 14th of January and hold the election The people instructed these electors for whom to vote and of course they obeyed the instructions and elected J McKinley and Roosevelt But they were not compelled to elect as they were instructed and could have cast their votes for Jones and Smith and the elec

Y In a very novel way Or Talmage In this discourse describes what may be expected in the next world by those who here bend all their energies in the right direction text II Peter i 11 for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly Different styles of welcome at the- suggestedgate of Heaven are here We all hope to enter that Supernal capital through the grace that is ready to save even the chief of sinners Rut not now No awn healthy of body and mind wants to go now Tune man who hurls himself out of this life is either an agnostic or is demented or finds life insufferable and does not care where he lands This is the best world we ever got got into and we want to stay here as long as God will let us stay But when the last page of the volume of our earthly life is ended we want enrollment in Heavenly citizenship We want to get in easily We do not want to be challenged at the gate and asked to show our pnssports We do not want the gatekeeper in doubt as to whether we ought to go in at all We do not want to be kept in the portico of tbc temple until consulta tion is made ns to where we came from and who we arc and whether it is safe to admit us lest we be a discord in the eternal harmonies or lower the spirit of Heavenly worship When the apostle Peter in the text addresses the people For so an en trance shall be administered unto you abundantly he implies that some will find admission into Heaven easy rapturous and acclamatory while others will have to squeeze through the gate of Heaven if they get in at all They will arrive anx ious and excited and apprehensive and wondering whether it will beti Come or Go The Bible speaks of such persons as scarcely saved and in another place ns saved as by fire and in another place as escaped by the skin of the teeth Carrying out the suggestion of inj text I propose to show you whet classes of Christians will get into Heaven with a hard push and those who will hound in amid salutations infinite In the first class 1 put that man who gets into the kingdom of God at the close of a life all given to worldliness and sin Years ago he made the resolution that he would serve himgclf and serve the world un til body mind and soul were exhaust ed and then just before 1nlgntthis life would Seek tod and pre pare to enter Heaven lIe carries out his resolution lIe genuinely repents the last day or the last hour or the last minute of his life He takes the last seat in the last car of the last train bound Heavenward His released and immortal spirit ascends Vot one wing bears down toward him with a welcome Xo sign of ghidnes at his arrival None there obligated to him for kindness done or alms dis tributed or spiritual help adminis tered He will find some place to stay but I do not envy that man his Heaven Ho hot in but it was not an abundant entrance Sometimes in our pulpits we give a wrong turn to the story of the dying thief to whom Christ said iTiis day shalt thou be with me in Paradise We ought to admire the mercy of Christ that pardoned him in the last hour but do not let us admire the dying thief When he was arrested I think his pockets were fullj of stolen coin and the coat he hadI on his back was not his own He stole right on until he was arrested for his crimes He repented and through great mercy arose lo Para dise but he was no example to follow What a gigantic meanness to devote the wondrous equipment ol brain and nerve and muscle and bone with which we are endowed these miracles of sight and hearing and profaneance at the last enter Heaven i Cheating God all ones lifetime and bankruplawf should think that some men would1 be ashamed to enter Heaven or would1 prefer some medium place in he wide universe where the palaces are so effulgent and the trees bear 110tII more than six instead of twelve man ner of fruits and the social llife is not so exalted Again the bigot will not have what my text calls an abundant entrance He has his bedwarfed opinion as to cvhat all must Dtliand do in order to gain celestial residence lie has his creed in one pocket and IMP catechism in another pocket and it may be a good creed and a gooa catechism but he uses them as sharp swords against those who will not accept his theoriesi You must be baptized in his way or come to him through apostolic sucresi lion or be foreordained of eternity or you are in an nwful tray He shrivels up and Bhrfrcij up and becomes more eplcnetic until the time of his depar ture is at hand He has enough of the salt of grace to save him but his entrance into Heaven will be some thing worth

were taught to be generous- inf childhood You can tell from the way the boj divides the apple what his characteristics for generosity or mean ness will be for the next 80 years if he lives so long If be eat it all himself while others look wistfully on he will be a Shylock if he give half of it to some one who has no apple he will bean ordinarily generous man if he give threefourths of it to another he will be a Baron Ilirsch or a George Peabody For 30 years this man has been prac tcing an economy which prided itself on never passing a pin without picking it up and if he responded at allin church would put on the collection plate so insignificant a coin that he held his hand over it so that no one could discover the smhllness aof the denomination Somewhere in the fif ties or sixties of his life during a re tival of religion he became a Cbaiis tian lIe is very much changed in most respects but his all absorbtg ac cjnisitiveness still influences him1 To extract from him a gift for an orphan- agej or a church or a poor woman who has just been burned out is an achieve anent You and I know very good men their Christian character beyond d is pute and yet thej are pronounced by j all as penurious and they know i themselves and pray against it We all have our bad habits and yet expec to get to Heaven and this skinflint has his mighty temptation The passio- of avarice well illustrated its strengt when in one of the houses of exhun e j Pompeii was found the skeleton of man who was trying to escape with CO coins and a silver saucepan For those valuables he dared the ashes nncl Rcoria of Vesuvius which overwhelmed him and many a good man has been held mightily to avarice 4ft hit that brings me to the or r thought of 1113 text that there Hre those who

many are by so licitations for alms In some poor woman in thin ehnxvl holding in her arms a child with rheum in its eyes this good man sees the Christ who said Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these ye have done iit unto me Well this roan of consecrated afflu ence is about to go out of this world He feels in brain and nerve the strain of the early struggles bwhich he won his fortune and at CD or 70 years collates under the exhaustions of the twenties and thirties of his life time When the mornng papers announce that he is gone there is excitement not only on the avenues where the mansions stand but all through the hospitals and asylums and the homes of those who will henceforth have no helper But the excitement of sadness on earth is a- very tame affair compared with the excitement of gladness in heaven The guardian angel of that good mans life swept by his flying pillow the night before and on swift wing upward announced that in a few hours he would arrive and there is a mighty stir in Heaven He comes cries seraph to seraph The Kings herads are at the gate to say tl Come ye blessed and souls who were saved through the churches that good tuna supported and hundreds who went up after being by him helped in their earthly struggle will Come down oil their thrones and out of their palaces and through the streets to hail him Into the land which they reached some time before through his Christian philanthropy Why that iis the man who when I xva ahungered gave me bread Why that is the man says another who encouraged me when I was in the hard struggle of

see an attractive daughter who takedof father and mother in old days IIcare is not an abstraction I have known such You have probably known such There are in this world womanly souls as big as that They cheerfully endure the whimsicalities and querulousness which sometimes characterize the aged and watch nights when pneumonia is threatened and are eyes to the blind and sit in close rooms lest the septuagenarian be chilled and count out the right number of drops at the right time The mother of a little child has her hands full but the daughter who stays home to take care of an aged father or mother basher hands just as full While I thus discourse 1 am aware that some have not taken the first step toward Heaven and they feel like Jacob Strawn who took some ministers of the gospel on the top of his house to shots his farms reaching in every dl rcction as far as eye could sec He 1was asked how many acres he owned and he replied 40000 how much is ii- worth it per acre was asked and he replied Fifty dollars at least Then said the minister you are worth 2 000000 Yes said Strawn and I node it all myself Then the minister said Yon have shown ma these vast earthly possessions and now

leading democrats of that city Elab orate preparations were made at the Sherman house for the reception of the late candidate for the presidency and upon his arrival he was greeted with a tremendous oxTition Mayor Harrison was toastmaster and in in troducing Mr Bryan he said We meet on Jacksons day because It Is the proper day on which to empty a bump er In memory of our partys founder Thomasj Jefferson to pledge a renewal ot our faith In the wisdom and the patriotism of our patron saint Andrew Jackson to grasp by the hand in token of our attention and esteem the gallant leader who without fear and without reproach without excuse to friend or apology to foe has borne the party standard in the last two national campaigns Our party lives as strong today as unbroken in rank and alignment as unswerv 1ing in purpose as devoted to the cause of free Institutions as in the days when it had Just received the indorsement of a majority of the citizens of the nation Defeat means little to a party if It stands for the truth for the triumph of justice for correct principles of government The democracy represents the government asi established by the fathers If the time has come when there is no further purpose for the party to serve the time is here when the form of government outlined by the declaration of independence and 1 formulated by the constitution has out lived its usefulness Shame be It to American manhood that the confession must be made but there are those today who waver In their de votion to the oldtime principles of government J For six generations the American youth was taught to believe in the right j eousness of the liUasluItl down In the dec laration of independence In the exact Jus tice of the theories outlined in the consti 1 tution And yet but a few days ago the attorney general of the United States de iclared without a blush yes with all the Bravado of a New Jersey trust lawyer that if the constitution had become a bar rier to the expansion of the republic as the tdespotisms of Europe expand it xvas highi time to cast it aside as so much worn out rubbishIn the history of our land there xva s never greater need of a peoples part than there Is today The republican parts In control of all the branches of the fed sral government Supreme in Its absolute dominion of the government It is in turn controlled by the most corrupting force that have ever swayed a great national party Great measures Introduced in the upper and lower houses of congress bear upon them all the earmarks of boodle For whatever ostensible purpose they may be introduced scratch beneath the surface and you will find the true cause the wish to pander to the Insatiate greed and lust that are today preying upon the great mass of our citizenship Whether 1It be tariff duty or subsidy In either gase It Is proposed to pour riches into the lap of those already gorged with wealth to ex act tribute from those groaning under too heavy a burden of taxation The puresthearted

According to ldvorskyIupinics in Columbia university the Ameri I t TelegraphCo000 as originally stated nearly 5300 ClOD for his recent invention of a sys tent by which ocean telephony is made possible This is in addition t the yensairingSundayfromgreatly surprised to learn that his intention had been made public The Dell Co has tested the invention for six mouths he suitand express themselves as perfectly satisfied it The question of telephony iis solv ed from a scientific standpoint and there only remains the commercial J questionThere is no doubt that as soon as the financial part of the matter iis settled it will be perfectly possible to telephone to Sao Francisco and London and to send cable messages to Europe at far less cost than at lines ent Prof Pnplu said that it was almost impossible to give offhand an expla nation that would not be too full of technicalities to be easily understood Briefly the professor said th question had been to overcome resistance In the present ocean cables the current has so many obstaclesto battle with that it comparativelyI slow in traveling and becomes very weak before it reaches its destina tion 3000 miles away Prof Pupin after long experiments finally discovered that the insertion of eight induction coils to every mile of wire would overcome this resis- ante and messages could be sent over the cable at a much faster rate 1y this means every time the cur rent begins to slacken its strength i will meet one of the coils which will give it renewed impetus till it reaches the next coil and so on It is practically a relay method of supplying strvngtrThe new system will re quire new cables which will involve an enormous outlay It is this feature only which is retarding the work atpresentThe will require no greater strength in electricity and no differ ent transmitters from those used now His invention when applied to land wires he explained will enable messages to be sent much further without relaying than at present and will make conversation between New York and San Francisco easy FELL FROM A SCAFFOLD Nine Men Tumbled IJO Feet Into a He ervor All Were Injured Four Fatally Jamestown X Y Jan 15A frightful accident
