delegates at large from Kentucky to the St Louis conven tion Who does Ollie favor for vt iiiL II v the nomination Upon this question he seems to have be come Parkemed Hearst probably thinks those Massachusetts and Georgia demo crats are a queer sot but he should endeavor to school himself to surprises of this kind There are several of the same sort yet in store for himr Hearst claims that New York democrats are dissatisfied with the action of their state conven tion jar instructing for Parser and he is right lloarstand Ibm sen are democrats and the use of the plural word is correct The republicans of Fulton county in convention assembled last Saturday endorsed Roosevelt and reaffirmed the republican platform We await the report in eastern papers that Kentucky goes for Roosevelt Reports from Missouri this weekconcerning the progress of the Folk candidacy are repiti tions of those received last week County after county cdmes out emphatically for the St Louis prosecutor who has made life a burden for the boodlers And Hawes 0 where was he Echo answers where Hearst will open his campaign in the First Kentucky district at Mayfield on Saturday May 7 Judge Tarvin of Covington will furnish the wind for the occasion He will be given a respectful hearing of course but the peo ple of this district have made up their minds that Hearst is not the man fdr their standard bear er and that is all there is to it The committee having in charge the arrangements for the grand Fourth of July celebration are rapidly getting things iin ship shape The enthusiasm grows steadily and everyone seems to be taking a personal interest in the affair It is going to be a great day and people from miles quid miles around will be here to take in the fun Letters received as early as this week say that many people from the other side of Huntingdon will come to take in the boat races Our readers may think that the subject Of good roads is a tiresome one but we can assure them that it is not near so tiresome to them as the bad roads are to the farmer who has to travel them nor to the merchant whose trade suffers because of the inability of the farmer to get to market It is tht paramount question of the day and should be agitated until the necessao relief haTs been se cured Every advocate of good roads should constitute himself a committee of one to talk the matter up and see that all his neighbors thoroughly understand and appreciate the importance of this great question The negro Paris who killed a postal clerk at Meridian Miss on February 29 and who was saved from a lynching by the prompt action of Qov Varda man was legally hanged at Me ridian Monday As the laws delay is responsible in a great measure for the mob spirit so rife against lawless negroes the prompt and rigorous enforcement of it as in this case will dampen the fire of mob law and eventu ally extinguish it Mississippi has the largest negro population of any southern state and her example in maintaining the su premacy of the law in this case will have a good effect every where The meeting of the farmers at the court house Wednesday night was the entering of the wedge into the relentless grasp of the willieventually ing of that grip and the restora tion vof living prices they products of the farm This is not to be brought about in a dayinor Ii u it c I 1 4 i j i 0 iJ GUARANTEED a

leading from Carroll street to the court house During the past few weeks they have deteriorated rapidly and are In such a state that it is attn ally dangerous to traverse them Many of the supportsI have rotted away and the steps proper rest entirely upon the cross pieces that are supposed only to hold the supports together One of the rails is entirely gone aDd is resting on the ground below where it fell i and one of the steps has been entirely re moved while a number of them are ID- a loose and dangerous condition Besides the danger connected with these steps there is their sloven au3 unattractive appearance They are the main thoroughfare loading to the court house are entirely out of harmony with their surroundings and will cause considerable unfavorable comment during the session of the circuit court the uexu two weeks There can scarcely be any excuse fob permitting them tq remain in their present dilapidated condition as they above all else stand I mostly in need of repair In our previous article culling atten tion to the condition of these steps iit was pointed out that the city could beheld responsible were an accident to oc cur to anyone while passing up or down them Should a suit for damages be instituted by some unfortunate who had been injured through the faulty condition ot these steps it would cost the city more to tight the sniteven if it were to win itthan it would to put the steps in proper repair There ia uo question but that it would be far cheaper for the city to spend a few dollars to repair them now rather than stand continually in fear of a suit that must cost several times what auf entire new flight would 1 LATER Since writing the above the steps have undergone some slight repair The unsafe condition still prey vans as the repairs were only

gunboat Nashville arrived op prsite Hickman Friday morning 8 oclock and dropped her anchor di rectly opposite the Mengel factory A large and enthusiastic crowd tins gath ered on the bank to watch her arrival and the dropping of the ships anchor was the signal for a succession of loud and hearty cheers The weather in the early hours of the lay Wild cold and disagreeable a strong wind blowing from the southwest and threatening rain until about 11 oclock when the clouds passed away the wind died down warmIWhat promised in the morning to be a raw winters day turned out to be one of delightful spring in the afternoon and made the visit to the gunboat a pleasant diversion A delegation ofI citizen with Mayor Dillon in the lead and composed of JW Cowgill J T Stephens O C Smith Judge F SIMoore Lr Charley Curlm Allison MI Tyler and the editor of time CourierI were at once taken aboard bv the IlaI Belle and formally received the ship on behalf of the city They wore en tertained in a royal manner by Corn mander Hubbaril and his oflbers who took an especial delight in showing the delegation about the ship and initiating them into the mysteries of the many intricate and complicated pieces of mechanism that go to the nuking ol an effective instrument of wur After an exhaustive tour of inspection the delegation was escorted to the cabin where they were regaled with inaiiv interesting tales ofsea life by Commau der Hubbard in the inimitable style of I tile educated and cultured gentleinan sailor He is an affable and courteous otlieer and has surrounded himself with II- a crew of subordinates and inunwho seemed to take an especial delight iin favoring the visitors The discipline of the crew was perfect and everythinu worked in harmony Every uiembei was happy stud contented so far as could be ascertained not a sour face nor a moping character among the 203 men aboard The delegation left the ship at 10 30 after having spent a most enioVabln two hours The Shiloh began carrying passen ors out to the slip shortly after 9 oclock and by tho tinge the committee left the deeps were well tilled with in terested sight sees From that time until 12 oclock when the ship was cleared for the dinner hour the crowd grew steadily Many people from the country and surrounding towns who tad not seen the Nashville on the oc casion of her stay here five years ago and had not seen a seagoing craft of any description viewed with wonder theii many things that were shown thorn by the accomodatiug crew Nothing was held in reserve except tho private quar lets of the oflicers and the crowd was shown from the bridge where the pow erful searchlight is stationed to tIn lower decks whore is located the machinery the electric plant the tnacnipe shop the store rooms and so on plot of the town people waited until after dinner to go aboard and when thoI Shiloh cast olF her mooriugs at 130 the barge which she curried was loaded to the guards with ueople mostly wo men and childreuwall anxious to see From 130 to 4 p m the Shiloh made four trips anti throughout the day carried about 1000 passengers The Golda Lee also carried a number to and fro but owing to tho tact that she did not arrive in the city mail noon the number of her passengers was necessarily limited The Messrs Carpen ter in the very able manner in which ttiey handled the large crowd deserve commendation Not an accident oven of the slightest degreeoccurred and none were prevented from going aboard through their negligence or mismanage monte The Hickman Cornet Band visited the ship in a body and rendered some appropriate i music on the trips going and coming As tlia Shiloh pulled along side the Nashville the baud playeti an appropriate piece of music and were roundly encored by the blue jackets 6 and marines who lined the port side of the ship and stood to attention during the rendition At four oclock all visitors were or dered ashore and preparations begun for the ships departure Soon the an chor was weighed and at 420 the Nashville steamed up the river on her way to the fair at St Louis Her next stop after leaving Hickman was Columbus then Cairo where she remained over Sunday She made several

affair a large and repre sentative gathering of Fulton county farmers and business men met at the court house Wednesday night to hear Mr H B Sherman of the Ameri can Society of Equity in his advocacy of the cause of the farmers and to wit iiess the organization of a branch of the society here The main object of the society is to BO organize the farmers that no matter what their produce is they can hold the output until such time as an increased demand wiil briug the price up to a fair standard Mr Sherman spoke for considerable length upon the different organizations of farmers which have flourished in the past and laid particular stress upon the point that those organizations ware primarily to attend to the other fellows businessby trying to force him to sell betow a given price while the American Society of Equity was organized for the sole purpose of raising the price ot farm nrodncls to an equi table one and mnmtainiiip it He graphically illustrated the effect t f a demand made on congress backed by a million farmers votes and showed conclusively that if the farmer had any hopes of ever helping himself he must do so through cooperation with his brother farmer and by an organization of sufficient strength to enforce its demands demand and receive an equita ble price fir his products He is a most earnest speaker and is thoroughly conversant with the mutter which he advocates Among other things he said that this society was so built that it would not drift into politics- asas the Alliance und the ravge hud done Also he said that this organiza tion could and should be built up to u level with other interests Some ac cuse you of forming a trust I say that you have as much right to form u trust as the Standard Oil Company or any other trnpt He went on to tell about reduced acreage of crops saying that he did uot think it possibly to effect results that way and that one feature of this organization was that the farmer can get as good and as equitable a price for crops on large acreage as on small acreage The main thin he said was to organize and to make the buyer come to you instead of your go ing to him with your produce aud sel ling it for a starvation price We are not said he contending for high prices but for a fair and equitable price Every class of labor is organized as are also many of the professions and the members of these organizations inI equiltableded one trade occupation or calling that is not organized except the farm ersThe headquarters of this organization are at Indianapolis and when one million farmers speak through the fountain head of their organization the politi clans will pay some attention to and comply with their demands Mr Ever ett further said that profitable prices for farm products will solve every prob Jem that the farmers of this section have to contend with Let said he the demand seek the supply which isOn your farm and dont dump all your produce on the market at one time Grain that goes into the elevator is used as a club the next year to beat down the prices of the succeeding crop He further said that they proposed to organize Kentuc ky as rapidly as possible Quite a number of those present came forward and enrolled themselves as members of the organization paying the initiation fee of one dollar Geo NVHelm WfiR elected president of the oeul union and J A McClure secretary I Surveying New Lute A party of Illinois Central engineers were here last week for the purpose ofI surveying a line from here to Tiger Tail Tenn They endeavored to keep the object of their visit a secret but we were unofficially informed tlfat this was their mission The old survey made several years ago comes from Clinton to Hickman passes through the eastern portion of the town and follows the bluffs urnund passes on the east side of Reelfoot Lake on to Tiger Tail oh the Forked Deer River ana then into Memphis The survey contemplates the tap ping of Tiptouville by a branch four miles long and would give that town rail connection with the outside vorld It has been common rumor for some time that the I 0 hud this change in contemplation and no definite action has yet been taken in the mutter but the fact that the now route wouldcut off several miles of truck between Cairo and Memphis is responsible for the belief that the railroad company is seriously considering the building of the road The engineers were very reticent about tho matter and did not seem to want the object of thoir mission known This however p another feature of the case which leads those informed as to the working of railroads to believe that the company intends to build tho road It scorns tote their style when intent upon doing a thing to keep it as quiet as possible but when they are only bluffing they make a loud noise Hair Conan MEDICINE FOR CIULDKKV When you buy n cough medicine for mull children you want one in which vou can place implicit continence You want one that not only relieves but

In the Universe While the political world has been dIs- cussing the course of British trade astronomers have been equipping an ex pedition which is if possible to solve the question whether we are all free traders and protectionists alike with the sun and the rest of the planets rushing through space at the speed of 45000 miles an hour in the direction of thestSlIt Vega says the Sphere With this ques tion Is connected another very vital one of our position in the general scheme of the universe The study of many facts In astronomy has tended toward the im pression that the earth is but a grain on the sand beach of space Other recent accumulations of facts however seem to Indicateas Dr Wallace the veteran colleague of Darwin has pointed out I that the earth occupies aunlqu and cen tral position in the visible universe In this very vital discussion it is of im portance to know whether we aro moving away from the apparently central posi tion in the plane of the Iilky Way with a speed which is great or negligible and In what direction we are moving To gather accurate facts concerning this movement Prof W W Campbell director of the Lick observatory has sent out an expedition to Santiago de Chili whose mission it Isio measure the velocity of 300 or 400 of the brighter stars In the quarter of the sky surrounding the south pole for the only way in which we become aware of the flight of the solar system is by watching the counter movement of the stars We are like says Prof Serviss passengers on the deck of a ship moving swiftly through a crowded harbor The direction and velocity of our motion are indicated by the other craft and the shores around us Ships ahead of us which we are over hauling loom continually larger those behind which we are leaving dwindle in the distance This does not quite ap ply In the case of the stars because they are almost Infinitely far away and the change in their brightness resulting from an approach to those in the north and our retreat from those in the south is too slight tQ be noticed even from yeer to year But luckily the waves of light do the orkforus Thellghtofthestars toward which we are going has its un dulation practically shortened by our swift approach and the light of those which we are leaving behind hasits undulations practically lengthened and the spectroscope not only detects these changes in thelight waves but enables us by their means to measure the rate of our motion and also to deduce its exact di rectionMore than 100 years ago Sir William Herschel declared that the solar system sun and his attendant planets includ ing our eartliIs moving In a straight line approximately toward the constella tion Hercules That was merely a guess on Sir Williams part for there were no means then of ascertaining the distances dlS1overiesstatement was absolutely correct and that the solar system Is moving to a point either In Hercules or In Lyra Herschel put the speed down to about ten miles a second Recent lengthly obser vations and calculations at the famous Lick observatory in California declare the speed at 12 miles a second or 45000 fItexpected that the combination of the spectrographic results obtained at the Lick observatory in Cali fornia and at Santiago will lead to avery satisfactory solution of the perplexing problem of the motion of the solar sys tem through space The expedition will be away two years It will be of interest here to quote Dr Wallaces conclusion The three start ling facts that we are jn the center of a cluster of suns and that the cluster is situated not only precisely In the plane of the Milky Way but also centrally in that plane can hardly now be looked upon as chance coincidences without any significance in relation to the culminating fact that the planet so situated has developed humanity Of course the re lation here pointed out may be a truere lation of cause and effect and yet have arisen as the result of one in a thousand million chances occurring during almost infinite time but on the other hand those thinkers may be right who hold that the universe is a manifestation of mind Police Torture In Japan In 1899 a

nature and which has never before been told was related to us this week by the gentle man who played the leading role on the Confederate side in the episode which came very nearly resulting in the death of the narrator Early in the year 1863 Ben Wilson than whom there is not a better known citizen in the county then 15 years old ran away from school lo join the Con federate army He enlisted in company I Seventh Kentucky Brigade Bn fords division of Forrestscavalry with Col Sam Grassland in command of the brigade and Capt Wess Campbell in command of UcompanJ He saw pleatv of the rough life

service he had already distinguished himself and been recommended for promotion by his sn perior officers On that date Juno 1864 Mr Wilson with a picked squad under Colonel Drew Outlaw Mud Capt Campbell was ordered on detached ser Y vice from the headquarters at Baldwin r rStationMlss the object of such ser t t vice being the recruiting of new men and bringing back to the ranks of men who had been off on furlough and full ed to return This mission brought the quad to the country surrounding Hick man and included Graves and lUckI 1man counties Ky and Obion and Weakly counties Ten n
