THE SOVEREIGN WILL I On the first page of the Gasette today will be found an account of the meeting of the senatorial com mittee of this district at the Usona hotel in Fulton alt Saturday night No public notice was given in ad vance of the meeting and therefore the public was taken by surprise and naturally has begun to look for the bug under the chip By the terms of the call Graves county can name the senator and doubtless the lucky man has already been promtsod a delivery ot the goods We feel sure that the masses of the demo cratic voters will have ao voice in making the nomination and the committee composed of Mr Harry Coulter of Mayfield and Mr R L Smith of Clinton might just as well have declared the nominee at the Usona hotel last Saturday night To us it makes little difference to whom the honor goes but such snap methods will not strengthen the demo cratic party in these three counties What is at stake anyway The senator has but to go to Frankfort and vote for Beckhira for United States senator To us it looks like mighty poor politics for the compel ling power behind this committee to I antagonize a large body of demo cratic voters in a year when neryII democratic vote is going to be ed in Kentucky HiCkImansuspect that the individual members of the committee were wed to settle somebody uld MMIM aguktua the county seat of Fulton county which t naturally should have been the place to hold the county mass convention The loss of 600 or 700 democratic votes at Hickman might cut some figure in the senatorial race as well as in the state election this falltThe calling of mass conventions at Mayfi ld Fulton and Clinton to select the delegates to a district con vention at Fulton was a most ridicu lous thing to do anyhow unless there was some sinister purpose in it Graves county has more delegate votes than the other two counties combined Had each precinct electn ed its own delegates Graves might not have presented a solid front in the convention j but under this call the action of the Mayfield conven teen is a finality and it would be far vial to hold conventions in Clinton and Fulton Clinton Gazcttee Well brother Walker what do these individuals care for the interests iis of the party when they have their own Interests at heart As fartl as the affront to the town of Hick man goes we Hickman do not care in fact if such snap methods it as you speak of are to predominate in the political conventions Hick man for her part would much pref1 fer that they be kept as far from her threshold as possible The fact is as you may know or rather it seems so to us that the days of letting the people choose their repre sentatives in this district are overt and the matter is decided wholly by oligarchy However if the people are willing to remain silent and let Uric state of affairs rule what are we poor servants of the people to do other than sit back and look on 1 with a sickening smile on our faces An old time unpolluted democratic convention would be such an mutual incident that we would I at s4fht of it sit back in our sancII tum M dumbfounded that our hairC wou14 ytyid on end I j OUI FINANCIAL CONDITION 1 Ia rhk iMue of the Courier will be found UM Council proceedings for gay In these proceedings will be found the iaaaclal condition I Famous Marrying Squire IIFultons Has married 890 people r SQUIRE J T FUTKBIjrj The above is a good likeness of J T Fntrtll of this county the worlds champion tarrying ewjulre Up to this date he has performed the marriage ceremony for about 445 oouples Squire Putrell is a plain sensible gontl mon which no doubt accounts for his popularity to a great measure with those who are matri mon l1y inclined ret full of fear and trembling The squire like the painleee dentist guarantees to take the young folks through this trying ordeal without taxing their timidity or leaving them In a nervous strain The squire took a dote of his own medicine October 13 1892 when he was marrfed to Miss Rosa Hall at Harris Tenn his wifes father a Christian minister performing the ceremony Two years ago he had the opportunity of returning the compliment by unting in marriage his fatherinlaw Kid T H Hall to Mrs Lisa Woodell both having come from Troy Torn to Fulton to be married by Esq Futtrell He married one runaway couple who was eloping from their parents in a twohorse wagon They stood up in the wagon in the front of the esquires gate while he performed the ceremony He married a coufle on one Sunday and the next Sunday he married the same couple over again The reason for this was the young man by mistake gave a nickname and afterward desired to be married by his real name and procured new license and married over He married two sitters in about ten minutes of time and neither knew Ute other was going to get married The oldest came first and then in tea minutes the younger sister ByImistake he married one couple on the wrong license and he mar tied them again over next day He has often married two couples at the same time Frequently it has so happened that he has per formed the ceremony for two sisters at the same time He said the ceremony for three brothers now living In Fulton beginning with the oldest and so on according to their respective ages He married one couple who walked twenty miles to get to his residence and return They come to him on foot in wagon in buggies on horseback and on the train from seven different states He married one couple frum Canada the young lady not being able to speak or understand a single word of the English language He has married people at every hour in the day and night and every day in the week and all seasons of the year of the City on January 1 1 71 Your attention Is called to this state ment By a careful perusal of this statement you will se that the City at present only owes 29000 with 385845 in the treasury The water and light 30000 80year bonds is the only indebtedness Last month a sinking fund was created and 2000 put to its credit which virtually reduces the indebted ess to 23000 then the city owes H Buchanan 1000 making the total S290ro With the E Case Memorial fund this month the live remaining City Hall bonds were re deemedNow this shows the city lobe in a fine financial condition All ac crued interest hat been paid There one thing needed It is a fact whether we hesitate to say so or not Hickman is the poorest paved city of her size in West Kentucky- or Tennessee This should not be creates a bad impression upon prospectors it is commented upon by visitors Hickman is to the front ahead of the average town so tar as financial matters are concern ed Her taxable value is more than the average city i she possesses more enterprising merchants and citizens than the average city and being true the fact that our streets are so poorly paved is a condition to be deeply deplored It is a condition that should be remedied and at once We arc not aware If there is such an ordinance but if there is not there should be at once to compel every property owner in the city to lay a good walk In front of his premises under penalty on failure to do so in a lim ited time And there should be a clause in the ordinance providing a penalty for an officer failing to en force it Every citizen should have enough of the towns interest at heart to do this without being made but when they will not they surely ought to be made take some pride in their surroundings We venture there is enough money paid out in fees in a year to the marshall for serving notices on property owners that tll1if they do not lay a walli in 10 days same will be laid at their expense to build fifty feet of walk We bad the pleasure last week of being shown through the poultry plant at the Pines at Paducah MrI R E Jones the proprietor of the plant k an export poultry judge and his chickens never go to a show and come away without flying colors He recently sold a cock for 5250 He entries an immense amount of Awe fowl of different varieties but those which attracted our attention most were the large White Wyan dcttes He also raises fine Colley dogs His farm is conveniently equipped with telephone electric lights and every desirable conven cubeA town that never has anything to do in a public way is OB the way to the cemetery Any citizen whom do nothing for his town Is help- Ing to dig the grave A man that curses the town furnishes the coffin The man who Is so selfish as to have no time from business togive to city affairs is making the shroud The man who will not advertise is driving the hearse The man who is always pulling back from any public enterprise is throwing boquets on the grave The man who Is so stingy as to be howling hard times preach es the funeral sings the doxology and thus the town lies buried

Louis where her sister Mrs Logan Trousdale of Birmingham went under the belief she might have gone there While the mysterious disap pearance was unsolved Mrs Trous dale demandrd of the physioan where her sister was He was greatly agitated finally declaring she had gone away to be cured of a disease The bodywas found January 25 floating in the Ohio near Cairo The supporter to the stocking in which she was sup posed to have carried 1500 was cut The stocking and money were gone as well as 1200 worth of Jewelry Shonly after the disappearance Feist deposited S500 in bank an unusual amountMrs Mabel

day The trial has been tried for the past five weeks and it seems that there will be another week or more The lawyers for both sides wrangle from morning until night over the admission of testimony At present it seems that Thaw will DC acquitted and the sympathy of the people in general throughout the country seems to be for him At any talc the country has not lost much in the killing of White for

the farmers are getting busy The A S of E held a meeting at Simmons to discuss the best method of holding the wheat crop They held one at Cayce on Friday for the same purpose They will have held a large union meeting at Sim mons before this reaches my readers to discuss ways and means to build a grain elevator at State Line They may build on at Cayce too Our county officers have been look ine out for oats and clover seed Some of our union friends in Tennessee held their olover seed while others dumped theirs on the market at 5 to 6 per bushel Those who held wrote to a friend in Hickman offering seed at S3 Our members and friends took them rapidly We afterwards found twenty more bush els at the same price I guess they will all be purchased before this is in printThis beautifully illustrates what the A S of E aims to do i c bring the producer and consumer together These producers received S2 per bushel more for their seed than their neighbors who dumped their crops received last fall Now they are selling the seed to the union farmers at sa while other farmers arc paying 950 for their seed Thus the producer gets 2 more per bushel and the consumer also saves 150 per bushel by organization The tobacco growers tell me that their organization pays them much better than this Before they or ganized they sold as SJ and Sl Now they sell their dark tobacco at S10 and SJ and their barley at S15 and a man who travels all the time and sells tobacco told me that the consumer gets his tobacco now just as cheap as he did before the farmers organized Why is this When the farmer dumps his clover teed In the fall at S5 to S6 per bush elllwy are sent to St Louis Chi cago or another city The seed men hold them until January or Febru ary and sell to the retail dealer at 7 20 to I per bushel as they are now quoted in St Louis By the time the retail dealer pays freight and a reasonable prelt he must have about 950 per bushel otherwise he could not live Now who is to blame for all thlll The merchant No sir The dear farmers themselves You remember the old story of the lark and the farmer so long as the farmer waited on his neighbors kin dred and friends his grain was not cut But when he determined to cut it himself the lark said it was time for her to move Just as long as we wait on the merchants to buy store and take care of our products for us we may expect to pay them a good price fordoing so but when we put up our own store houses and take care of our crops then but not until then may we expect profitable pricesDoes this mean that we are make ing war on our merchants By no means We need and must have merchants to handle boots shoes dry goods groceries furniture machinery end hundreds of things that we havent either time or inclination to handle But because they handle all these things is no reason why we should depend upon them to handle our crops which we ought to handle and must handle ourselves if we ever expect to get table prices for them

get to heaven but to help others including even his wife to find heaven here on earth If he had made that his mission from his wedding day or earlier he would probably not be in such fear of perdition
