Kentucky senator ial race is still an open one is growing as the time approaches for tho voting t to begin and a straggle of considerableI length in the Democratic CAUCUS no- II seems to be almost as certain as the I a result is uncertain ExGovernor Mc Crearys friends still claim that he willI J i have an easy victory but the workers for the other condidates insist that he 1tcannotget a commanding lead from the I start and give figures to prove their j assertions For instance they say it ii- f is not disputed that Congressman Wheelh er will get all the votes in his congres atonal district with one exception andI enough in tne Second District and inI IJouisville to give him a total of 18I Votes at the start Congressman Smithl will get all the votes in the Fourth t Congressional District some in the Sec ond and Third Districts and two or three scattering votes that will it iisI claimed bring his total up to 27 votes f Owing to the fact that ex Uov Me Creary home county adjourns thet r Seventh District he will get two or t three votes in that district which is Judge CantrilLs home but conceeding thatJudgeCantrill+i districts to give him it total of 19 on the i foriKcCrearr4 Smith claims but still 15 votes Ishort1l of the 50 that is required to win If these figures are cornet it will be seen that Smith and McCreary together will recelvenearly two thirds of the total vote but is pertinent qudstion is how I McCreary will get the 15 votes neces sary to win out Some one of the weaker candidates will have to be drop j ped but who will make the motion to drop the hindmost man If

Schley For the peoples nomination When Dewey won the great victory Manila the people of the United itates with one voice wanted to heap very possible honor npou him Apparently he could have been elected preSident independent of eithor of the Teat political parties But he had een a soldier and his politics not known but was generally accredited being a Republican and if so he lust be nominated by the Republicans For the Republicans to nominate him iclved tho lamented McKinloy and hence the Republican politicians com icnce to seize every opportunity to decry the hero of Manila By and by Dewey proclaimed himself a Democrat but his nomination by the Democrats mflioted with the prearranged order things to nominate Bryan and hence overy Bryan paper and politician com menced to decry the Manila hero and between the two they soon had Dewey 1miSmot ridiculed man in the United aes Of such stuff o harQEsmada id worse than all of such stuff are politicians made And moreover of such stuff are tho people made as to be swayed in their estimate of heroes If Dewey had never been spoken of for esidonl his fame as the hero of Manila would never have been tarnished ths politicians And so it

Washington Dec HTho most prolonged interesting and important naval tribunal ever held in this coun try camo to a close after having in open and secret session lasted three months short ot ono week when Sec retary Long was handed the findings of the court of inquiry which inquired into the conduct of Rr Adm Schley during the Santiago campaign For seven weeks the court heard test mony and for fully a month it del b orated upon that mass of evidence finally reaching the conclusions an Daunted The result was a complete surprise and it is probable that no prophesy has approached the truth Instead of one report there are twolBoth are signed by George Dewey the president of the court and by Sam C Lemly the judge advocate This Is a form said to be recognized in all courts of inquiry the signatures of the other members not being necessary But It is explained that Adm Dewey signed the second report a minority report to express his qualification of or dissent from the views expressed by the court comprising himself Adms Bern bam and Ramsey in the first report- It Is said at the navy department that there will be no further proceed ings In this celebrated case on the departments initiative Secretary Long and Judge AJvocate Lemly pos flndingInthe reports at 5 oclock Friday evening and he has not yet acted upon thsm It is probable that he will simply ap pond his signature with the word Approved to the whole record The court itself recommends no further proceedings owing to the lapse o t timeThe majority report condemns Adm Schley on 11 points while Adm Dewey sustains him In most places The rr Jority opinion finds In brief that Adm Schley should have proceeded with th utmost dispatch to Cieafuegos and maintained a close blockade that he should have endeavored to have obtained information of the Spanish squadron there that he should have proceeded to Santiago with dispatch that be should not have made the retq r rtde movement that he shouldI 1 r obeyed the departments orders fist alturnt t Ct at Us le squadron to lose distance i1 the lea of the Brooklyn that he thereby caus ed the Texas to back that he did in justice to Hodgson that his conduct In the campaign was characterized b vaccillatlon dilatoriness and lack of enterprise that his official reports on the coal supply were misleading andI inaccurate that his conduct during the battle was selfpossessed and that lIe encouraged in his ovn person his subordinate officers and men Adm Dewey in his report says that the passage to CIsnfucgos was mad with all dispatch that in view of hio coal supply the blockade of Clenfue gos was effective that he allowed the Adula to enter Ciecfuegos to get information l that his passage to San tiago was with as much dispatch as possible keeping the squadron together that the blockade of Santiago I was effective and finally that he w the senior officer off Santiago in abs t lute command and entitled to the credit due for the glorious victory which resulted In the total destruction of the Spanish ships ADM GEORGE DROWN The Veteran Naval Officer Expresses His Opinion of the Verdict in the a r CaserIndianapolis Ind Dec 14Rr Adm j George Brown retired when asked forttE his opinion of the verdict in the Schle case said 1 read the original charges against Adm Schley of course and made up L my mind that no court would ever con III vict him of cowardice They could not do that Tho whole country knows he Is not a coward There not a drop of cowardly blood in his veins If there were ho would nevert have become a commodore and admi1 ral In the navy I did think moreover that the r court would possibly censor him for his retrograde movement and his tar iL illness in getting to Santiago Cer vera had time before the arrival of Schley to coal and get away But he did not and Schley got there In time l thre l fleet of Cervfira The results wereI exactly what were being aimed at HI I ry EveEi get iaway and his fleet was destroyed at

passed the danger line and were stilt rising with reports from the headwaters of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers stating that both streams were still rising The weath ar bureau announces that the cold brave will prevent the streams from caching 30 feet but that considerable amage will result from the unexpect ed rise and Inability of shippers and river men to tie craft securely before the crest of the rise arrived In the Allegheny river at 9 oclock the water indicator showed 25 feet 7 lathes and the river rising in the Monongahela the reading on the gauge was 20 feet 7 inches while at Davis Island dam 21 feet and G inches and rising seven inches an hour was reported One of the incidents of the flood occurred at 9 oclock Sunday night when 75 coral barges of the Monongahela River Consolidated Coal and Coke Co which were tied up at Browns Land ing between Pittsburg and Davis Is lland dam broke loose and were whirl ed away by the swift current As quickly as possible towboats were sent after the craft According to the op erator at Davis Island dam the pieces passed there shortly after 9 oclock There is considerable alarm in rivor circles over the accident If the boats aro not rounded up by the towboats and towed ashore they will go to pieces and block the channel which will roe sult in a big loss to the river coal com lIlncLatorSeveral of the barges were rounded up by boats tied up below but the majority of them are still racing along with the current At Duquesne a fleet of 25 barges moored at the docks of the Carnegie steel works broke away and went plunging down the Monongahela river Nineteen of the barges were heavily laden with coal and when they struck the pier of tho Pennsylvania railroad bridge just below Port Terry all but three or four were smashed and sunk completely blockading the channel at that point THE SCHLEY CASE I theeCourts Instead of to Congress rBaltimore Dec IGRr Adm W S Schley has notified Attorney General Isidor Rayner that he Is ready

Louts Klopfch Jf YI This discourse is a most unusua presentation of things that take place iu many lives and Dr Talmage pleads tor merciful interpretation of human behavior The text is Joshua 3 4 Ye Lave not passed this way heretofore In December 1S8U I waded the River Jordan and although the current was vtrong I was able to bear up against it but iu the time of spring freshet when the snows 011 Mount Lebanon melt nothing but a miracle would enable Anyone to cross the river It was at tut dangerous springtime that Joshua and the officers of his army uttered the words of m3 text to the people who were in a few hours to cross the Jor dan About that crossing e say but little because on a previous occasion we discoursed concerning that piing wp of the writers into crystal barricade eonlspeak of the march to the brinkof the river Xo stranger thing Las ever occurred in all history The ark of the covenant was a bril llaiit chest of acacia wood overlaid with goldon the top of which here two winged figures facing eachother It was live feet lung and three feet wide Poles were thrust through the riiigsat the side and by these poles the ark vas lifted This splendid box was to He curried Ihreoquarters of a mile head of the Lusts of Israel on the way 1 ahe crossing That distance between the box and the advancing thousands urosl le kept because of reverence There 35U sanctity iu that divine cyaibul that they must observe by keeping threequarters of a mile away They must watch that glittering box and follow otherwise they would lose iheir way and not arrive at the right place for trossing They had never ueasa there before and they must be iguided Fur that reason Joshua utter the words of lay text ie haTe not passed this way heretofore and the subordinate officers at the head of the 3 7imentrepeated it Ye Lav not parsed this way heretofore What was truthfully said of the anent Israelites may be truthfully said of us Wenre lnaking our first nUtJ last journey through this

hourereryeeuthr5a new century Other folks have gone over t the same road we are traveling but it is ouriirKt trip New appearances new temptations new sorrows new joys That it the reason so many lose their r ruadrof life and ask for direction and wrung direction is given We have all bCcuI perplexed by misdirection afterabkin the way lo some place we WI IItdII visit Soiue one said to us Take tbeI first road to the right and having gone a mile on that road take the first road to the left and you will soon reschI your destination We took the advice but our informer forgut a turn in theI road or forgot one of the roads leading to the left and we took the wrong road and were lost in the woods and night cme on and we were put to great irritation and trouble The fact is I blame no one for ma king lifetime mistakes I pity them instead if blaming them There are so many wrongroads but only one right one You cannot in midlife draw upon JourII youthful experiences for wisdom forC midlife 1550 entirely different from youth You cannot in old age draw 1 upon midlife experiences for the two stages of existence are so diverse What is wisdom for one man to doI Woald be folly for another to undertake A man of nerve and pluck is not 1 qualified to advise a man timid nndI shrinking An achievement that would be easy for you might be impossible 1 for me Human advice is ordinarily of little value People review their own successes or failures and then toll us I what is best for us to do not realizing I that our circumstances are different our temperament is different our physical and mental and moral capac Sties different Most of the great mis takes that have been made have been made under human advisement So also it may be said to every na t- tIoaY have not passed this way be goingthroughest statesmen 20 years ago have 1 prophesied present conditions Every president every congress has new crises to meet and new questions to settle So prophecies made about con ditions in this country 50 years from now may turn out as far untrue as the 1 prophecies made 50 years ago by the greatest of American statesmen when he declared on yonder Capitol hill thatrlt was unwise to thinkof civiliza tiou or prosperity the other side of the Roaky mountains and according to his btlW ifccfepaclfie coast would be the t t V perpetual abode of barbarians and mountain lions and we must not think of annexing those forbidding regions Many prophecies in regard to our nation failed and many prophecies concerning its future will fail be cause it is traveling a new road Every step it takes on that road is a novelty The opinion of a Monroe or a Jefferson in the far past is not of as much value as the opinion of our wisest men now How could men know in 1S23 what it would be hest for this nation to do in 1901 It is belittling us well us unwise for our statesmen who are quite equal to the statesmen of the past and who have in addition to the natural talents of their predecessors attain meats in knowledge that were im possible in any decade but our own to depend on advice of men who have been dead threequarters of a century In all other things the world luis advanced Can it be that in statesmanship it has gone back and that this opening of the twen tieth century must consult the open ing of the nineteenth century Ye have not passed this way before Yea our entire world is on a new pathway It may be swinging in the j same old orbit as when by the hand of the Almighty immensity was sprinkled with worlds but it has been rocked with earthquakes nuttt scorched with volcanic fires and whelmed with tidal waves and wrought upon by climatic changes cities sunk and islands lifted and mountains avalanched into valleys So it is another world than that which was first started in the solar system Yet it is all the time changing and will keep changing until the hour of its demolition Of this beau tiful world this lustrous world this glorious world it may be said Ye have Out passed this way before What is the practical use of this subject Instead of putting so much stress upon human advice and instead of asking of the past what we I ought to do follow the divine lending I as the men of Joshua follow the golden lidded chest of acacia which was the symbol of the divine presence Not human but divine leadership Joshua not consulting with his colonels and lieutenants but consulting with Goothe God of individuals the God of nations the God of worlds That threequarters of a mile dis tance between the ark or sacred box and the front column of Joshuas troops mightily impresses me It was a forceful way of teaching rever ence for the Almighty They needed to learn that lesson of reverence as we all need to learn it Irreverence has cursed all nations and none more than our own Irreverence in the use of Gods name Hear you it not on the streets and in social groups and is not a profane word h Scriptures the phraseology of the Uible often introduced into the most i frivolous conversation and made mirth provoking Irreverence for the oath in courtroom or custom house or legislative hall by the eon ventional mid mechanical mode of its j administration Irreverence for the jI holy Sabbath by the way it is in pleasurable excursion broktnII rousal Irreverence on the part of children for their parents insolence being substituted for obedience Irreverence for rulers which induces vile cartoons and assassination I reverence in church during 11II off andmeasuring song sermon cold artistic or literary criticism and in prayer time neither bowing the head nor bending the knee nor I standing as one does in the presence- of earthly ruler thus showing more I respect for a man than to the Kinjf 1 of Kings We ask not for genuflex ions or cireumflexions or prostra tions but when prayer is offered et us either bow the head or bend the knee or let us in some way prove that we are not indifferent In how many places have presumption and foolhardiness taken the place of reverence That threequarters of a mile between the chest of acacia covered with gold and mounted with wings a symbol of the divine presence and the marching regiments of Josh ua suggests a reverence that is woefully lacking in social life in legislative hall and religions assem blage A farmer went to the wheat field taking his son with him The child said These stalks that stand straight up must have the best grain Those stalks that bend over cannot be worth anything Then the fa ther broke off two of the tops of the stalks and said Child that one that fiends clear over has the grain It is the soul that bows in deepest reverence which is the best soul But though Joshuas host observed the threequarters of a mile com mand they followed the ark and you will do well to follow the divine leading as the path you tread now has not yet been trodden Ye have not passed this way before Many of you are suffering from just such annoyances as have not occurred in all your history There have been meannesses practiced upon you or you have received slights or you are subject of misinterpretations or disappointments made upon your strength and time more than you can meet or some physical ailment is laying siege to your castle of health or you are under embarrassments that you cannot mention even to nearest friends You say Well I never saw any thing like this I never expected such treatment as this I never thought it possible to be placed in such circumstances And when you say all that you aie only translating the words of my text into your own phraeologYIf you CJhadj suffercd something like thiailjefore you would 1 have known what todo trit here III a flank movement for which you are not ready As our sorrows are new our joys are new and all our experiences are new Our life is one long discovery of things that we did not know and could not know because we have not passed this way before We have found for instance that gratitude is the rarest of virtues You used to suppose that if you do a kindness it will be fully appreciated and recip rocated You have found out by ex perience as you could have found out in no other way that gratitude is apt to be only another ax to grind While there is a possibility that you may return still more service you are thanked but when you can return no more advantage you are dropped Here is a man whom you have helped in political elevation When the time comes for the compliment to be re turned you are not only refused help but you receive positive opposition Yon have found out that you should do the right thing not with respect to reward or gratitude but because it iis the right thing to do Many are miserable because they are all the vvay looking for gratitude which they cannot find You might as well go down Pennsylvania avrire Washing ton or Hruadway New York or Tee scruti111iziug quoises and emeralds and rubies Per haps you might thud them but there is not much probability that in 50 years you would tind one of them We talk about the great discoveries of the age the electric power the telescopic and microscopic power but do not say anything about the discoveries we all make year by year and day b3 day There are surprises all the time It is a new road we are traveling Ye have not passed this way be fore But closely allied is the other fact which we hintedat in the opening agninTbiscertain things that ought to be done Un all sides there are griefs we ought to solace hunger we might feed cold that we ought to warm kind words that we ought to speak generous deeds we ought to perform All that you and I do toward making this world better and happier we must do very soon or never do at all Joshua and his troops never came back over the way they were marching toward the crossing of the Jordan The Impress of the sandal or the bare feet of each soldier showed in what direction he was going but never did the impress of the sandal of any one of them show that he returned We are till facing eternity to come There SK no retreat Alertness and fidelity would not be so important if we could truthfully say I will bo back here again The things I neglect now I will do the next time I will be reincarnated and I will resume my Ura Ij O IS- charge my earthly duties better than I can yow discharge them I do not give solemn farewell to these obligations and opportunities but a smiling art cheeky gootJby until I see them again No we cannot say that There will be ono iew and corrected edition of the volume of our earthly life After ue c10ieI13 did I know not but of nIl the human rce who have gone only seven persons that I now think of have returned the 7nrcJlalththeIJoung Christ Among all the ages td come I do not suppose there will be one more to return to this life having once left Iit Lord Bacon said that he who shall the way to make myrrh solu ble by human blood will discover fur mortal life on earth but no such dis covery will ever be made With what suggestive solemnity does this thought charge every hour of our earthly ex istence It is said that it is possible to know which way the wind blew at the time of the deluge by the mark of the waves still to be found in the sand and the direction of our influence however slight will leave a mark that will last forever 0 hearer stop bothering about your exit from sublunary scenes By the grace of God get your heart right and then go ahead If the Lord takes care of 3ou clear on to the bank on this side of the river I think you can trust Him to take you from bank to bank from the willows on this side the stream to the palms on the

right One Easter morning Massena the marshal of France appeared with 18 000 armed men on the heights above the town of Feldkirch There was no arms to defend the town and the in habitants were wild with terror Then the old dean of the church cried out My brothers this is Easter day We have been depending on our own strength and that fails Let us turn to God Ring the bells and have service as usual Then the bells rang out sweetly and mightily from the church towers of Feldkirch and the people thronged to the houses of prayer for worship The sound of the bells made the enemy think that the Austrian army had come to save the place and Massena and his 18000 soldiers retreat ed By the time the bells had stopped ringing there was not one soldier insight So put your trust in God and when hosts of troubles and tempa lions march for your overthrow ring nil the bells of hope arid faith atd Christian triumph and the threaten ing perils of your life will fall back and your deliverance will
