lpVroprss J GEO W WILSON Lessee and Editor PUBLISHED FRIDAY OUR NOBLE STATE SENATOR Senator Henry George representing this district in a letter to the Mayfield Messenger says upon the question of a branch circuit court at Fulton The legislation that luau given me snore trouble than anything else was a local jfliwtiOB ia Fulton couaty that ie the act amtkerizing the holding ot circuit courts in the town oC Pnlton in tkt county The Fulton end wanted tka eoart and the Hickman end did not want them to have it To do either one I had to displease some of my very best friend which you know is very dis mgreeabU tb me I want to leas every one and want them all to lore mett Poor old man How singly sad that he cannot have the love Of the entire universsv v Illc m as h 20c 7ee4 8eJJt bargain 4other fail EVERY What terrible calamity that he lik Benedict Arnold and other traitors ii to most sacred trusts reposed in them by the people should re ceive the punishment his unfaith fulness deserves What manner of people can this be who for so smallan offense as treasonwould dare to trample jn the dust of disgrace or besmirch the charac ter of the idol of Graves county the catspaw of Fulton Do they not know that the great George is what he is and can do no wrong What matter forsooth to the people of Hickmani if through his greatness plums innumerable fall to lus share as the reward of his greatness An- is d it not also possible that the great George upon his triumphal return into the land of assistant state auditors and other thingsj no longer will be compelled to turn the furrows nor wrestle with a stubborn and balky mule but will become fin employer of men on his cabbage plantation at 49Q per month I Yea verily K w is it not true that the great and is only Henry George state senator is no longer a servant of the peo ple Has he not become a tool to do the will of rings and cliques and mighty politicians Is he not a man blessed with two radi a ant countenances that shed forth the lusterof enlightened politics Has he not in his years of expe rience become an adept in the ledgerdemain of political sleight ofhand the now you see it now you dont sort And in his sorrows he cries out in despair How now what has come oer the people that I am thus defiled for the performance of a trick a mere play that should be ap plauded of all men yea even though it work injury to some what matters it to me Am I not the great George whom the untold multitudes revere and who can do no wrong Verily it is a strange thing that in these troublous times when two faces are looked upon as one of the greatest of accomplishments that I George the great should be called upon to answer to the peo ple the mere voters for my acts in legislative halls Fie on all such What right have they to impugn the motive or suffer me to come under suspicion for doing wrong when I can do no wrong 1 They know I can do no wrong for have I not repeatedly told them so Bosh And thus does the great George commune one self with the other Our noble doublebarrelled senator I is sorely grieved that he has displeased some of his very best friends but we hasten to reas sure himwithout a promise that the people of Fulton county outside the town of Fulton know and realize that he will never displease them again They have that much confidencein the integrity of the people Great though he may be in his own nar row vision he is still greater iin the estimation of his constituen cy but the hitters idea of thej greatness achieved by the illusl1 trious member from the Fit 111St rict iis along t

circuit cou j by what is known as the Har rj grove bill the Fulton Commercial volunteers the startling in formation that Hickman is not the whole county As it makes ft no other argument we infer th the Commercial would convey the idea that Fultoncounty with out Fulton would be an aching voidLong years ago before the edi I tor of the Courier saw the ugh of day and when the Commerciall editor was engaged in moulding the republican opinion of Indiana that has resulted in giving pro tection to Kentucky murderers 0 and assassins Fulton county was a thriving community All was peace and joy and prosperity- e With the advent of the Newport News Mississippi Valley raill road now the 1 0 came Fultonist the disturber the thorn in th side of the county It arrogantly claims as its own the work per formed generations before it was born It has no scruples as to unI fair dealing and if the truth were known this predominating spirit of we want all the best of it honestly if possible but we war it is the reason that Fulton h never been able to command the trade of her own territory Th 1 same spirit has gained for her a most undesirable notoriety only at home but beyond the confines of the state She is greedy grasping community and those who know her shun her Once a mart of local important her sly tricks and greediness have driven off those who would hay been her friends and made of her a railroad loafing place anda rendezvous for the criminals the county Her punishment ha been swift sure and complete aSl amply attested by its rows of vacant storerooms the Hollow sounds of vacancy upon its streets and the indolence apathy and lethargy of its newspapers She may have thought this last trick shrewd one but we make the prediction that she the most expensive I yet played As the answers for his opinionIIof justice so must at the bar of public Hickman has never claimed to- be the whole county She dues claim however to be the county seat of government of this coun ty and as such not only has law and precedent to sustain her but threefourths of all the people of the county proclaim her contentions to be right Hickman Oayce Madrid Bend Sassafras Ridge and about half of Lodge ton all strenuously opposed to the Hargrove bill poll more than threefourths of the votes of the county own more than three fourths of the wealth of the county and pay more than three fourths of the taxes cf the county Fulton with less than out fourth of any of these has forjj the past 25 years been throwing stumbling blocks in the way of the balance of the county and used every means within its pow er to retard the countys prop ress It refused to pay the courthouse tax and had to be threat ened with suit before it wouldIJ liquidate notwithstanding the I fact that the structure was builtt exclusively by Fulton people It has taken every opportunity to enhance itself by Iknocking i the balance of the county and stopped at nothing that a desired result might be obtained Fo 25 years it has been trying to burden the county with the experts of moving the court house to Fulton but she may try for 25 years more and the result will be the same Nothing that Fulton or its people can say will mitigate in the least the theft perpetrated by our representatives thei- e Igation lowever the jay decide this much is certain thrpefourths of the voters of the county are unalterably opposed to the Hargrove act and unqualifiedly condemn Fulton for the part she played in securing i passage rtThe recent street car disaster in Paducah in which one man was killed and several people inI Ii jured

incorporated l towns of all classes has become law and will be operative at the election this fall In this count will affect only Hickman and Fulton about 000 votes in the former and 450 in the latter place importon provision of the law is that a certificate will b given each voter when he registers and if he cannot produce said certificate at the polls he cannot vote Provision is math securing a duplicate certili cate by making aliidavit that thej original was lost but this doe not menu that a duplicate may be secured when the original iis or otherwise wilfully dis posedof The effect of this law in this county will probably b4a1 decline in the number of votes ast in the fall election as there will certainly be some who will neglect to register while althoughregistered will mis place or lose their certificates and fail to get duplicates and thus in either instance becoming disqualified as electors Such radical changes in the election laws always work a hardship for a time or until

Outllitud The EoouDiiiy of MtiiutCH TA question that perplexes those who have seen the Worlds Fair during the period of its construction is Row can I see the exposition as it aJMtd be seen in the few days that I shall have to devote to it This is indeed a perplexing qttM don Many persons are preparing to more to St Louts for the entire ex position period or a considerable part of it in order to see the fir prop erly But the great majority of those who dwell at a distance will feel able to spend only a few days perhaps a week in the grounds and they are the ones who must economize their time so that they may see the sights to the best advantage As a matter of fact no one will be able to do the exposition thoroughly in a week or for that matter in a month So vast Is the thing that only those who havo watched its growth closely during the three years past can have any ads luate conception of its immensity However as a great many thousands of visitors will have only a week or so in which to see the fair it is In order to offer a few sugges tions tlat will enable them to make the best of the time at their disposal Let us assume that the visitor has one weeksix days beginning on MondayIt be well first to take a rfde on the Intramural Railway which makes a circuit inside the grounds with fourteen miles of track A trip of a little more than an hour on one of these commodious electric cars specially constructed for observation purposes will give the visitor some idea as to the surface vastness of the exposition and tho beauty of its exterior features It Is well after the ride to plunge at once into the maelstrom of mae nificence It will dazzle but after the precautionary car ride the visitor should ho lu a measure prepared for iL Let him leave the ear atone of the

intercourse with Japan the evident in tention of Russia has been to tease ex asperate and insult Japan into declaring war and striking the first blow The wain reason perhaps for adopting this policy has been that the czar of Russia since The Hague conferAnce has prided himself on being the leading champion and exponent of peace principles in all the world His government ever since the days of Peter the Great has been I to be sure a system of territorial aggrandizement conducted always in the spirit of autocratic despotism and by J means of numerous bloody and inexcus able wars This however is the iden tical reason why the czar wishes now to jikiao as the czar of peace but to pur sae it the same time the course of rob bevy and bloodshed for which his ancea tots kave been notorious Accordingly the program in the pres t 1 v 1c x j iiHickmanKentucky I mumumummuuummmmmUUU hmmmmmmmuumuumuumummmmuuummummuuuummuuuuuuUI appreCi1ated eut case has been to persevere in the encroachments on China and to treat Japan with contempt The plan was to travel round anti round in a diplomatic circle that would confute the Japanese mind and consume time and when Russian ureparatious were com plete make no reply whatever to the Japanese notes until Japan should be stung by the insult declare war and tire the first gun Thou the czar could conduct another bloody war without discrediting himself as the czar of peace The plan worked smoothly until last Monday week when the Jap anese struck the first blow by sending out a few torpedo boats and destroying three of the tinest vessels in the Russian navy withont receiving so much an- a scratch themselves This was the purport of Alexieffs dispatch which was banded to the czar immediately after he had returned from Moscow where he had been praying for the de struction of the Japanese fleets The dispatch might have been appropriately headed Pride goeth before a fall Russia will receive little sympathy in any part of the civilized world under this staggering and humiliating first blow Iu the eviction of Russia from Manchuria every country on the globe is intel sted more or lessbut with Ja pan it is a question of life and death For Russia to remain in Manchuria means the absorption of Corea and the fall of Corea means the subjugation of Japan THE DEAD- nrvvwrrrl v ri I rrvrrrrJ NWY J II Coffey J H Coffey aged about 37 years
