defense and admitted hav ing brought the mountaineers to Frankfort under instructions and with the assistance of W S Tay lor J iq Powers saps there were three crows of men brought to Frank fort and that he helped to bring each crowd the first was while the Canvassing Board was in session They came not as witnesses but to show their interest but not as stated by Noaks to intimidate They were instructed not to crowd around the Canvassing Boards The second crowd was sum moned as witnesses in the contest cases and came from January 12 to I7 The tbirdcrowd wa brought to Frankfort on January 25th to show their interest in the outcome of the contest We had them come armed because the law gave them a right to bear arms openly and also to petition the legislature and The authority for that

cost and payment of pikes in this county We meant to say and it is true too that the railroad company and property holders would pay nearly all the cost the railroad company paying onehalf ot it all Now just think of itthink seriously and then act Dont act too hastily Care fully count all the cost and place the amount upon the debit side then place the benefits upon the ciedit side and carefully add and when you shall have balanced the sheets the most sanguine pike ad vocates will be amazed at beholding such a large balance in favor of the credit colum No one except the person who Has given serious and long thought to the matter has even a tolerably good idea of the benefits to be derived for it will benefit every class of people in the county from the tramp or beggar allalongtheliue to the wealthiest landowner merchant or banker in the countrythis iscertainly true With such roads in our county immigration will flow inland will rise alls rts ot labor will find a demand at good wages at home and enterprise will be the watch word and prosperity the rult Now my friends talk only willnot build these roads neither can the labors of one man accomplish it were it thus and I would jfrmsoon cpmplete boo r I read Citizens dream very attentively and am satisfied that not one item1 is contained therein that cannot soon become a reality if we had those roads Now as to tax that great bug bear ot whom we are all So afraid and about which so much is said Richard did you ever think notice closely all I say that the man liv ing in the county who owns but one horse and makes but few trips to the county seat will save more than enough in time iron and horse flesh saying nothing ot extra comtort to pay his tax the man who owns two horses and is unfor tunate enough to run a road wagon will in wear tare hoss flesh time and difference in weight of load save enough to pay hrs whole State county and poll tax the man that runs a buggy in addi tion to the 2 hoss wagon will save enough to pay his protective tariff also the man who does more wa oningriding driving etc will save still more while the footman who owns no property and goes it alone will save enough in time pleasure and sole kather to pay his tax the cattle sheep hog and mule farmer will find more purchasers for his stock giving him the benefit of com peticn aid better prices the railroads will be benefitted too for thousands of a pounds will then find their way to the depot that are now consumed acid partly wasted at home Now let as get down to good hard thinking for thoughts beget words and

Beckham 1 of Nelson rt i If there was ever in the minds ot anyone as to the result of the elec tion in November as regards Ken tucky that doubt is of course reo moved since Governor Beckham has decided to call an extra session r of the legislature to amend the election law It is certainly a wise act when we think how much might depend on Kentucky in the National election to say nothing vof the State We know that if the election was very close and by some pretext Kentucky could be thrown out and McKinley counted in it would as certainly be done as Mark Hanna said so and ol course it is whiling away time to tell how certain that is everybody knows fullwell what Marcus would do Ii fact everything seems to point to an oldtime victory this fall Mr Yerkes himself is a thorough bred aristocrat of the deepest dye and ho has about as much use for a y common mountain man who makes leis living by the sweat of his brow C as a Chinaman has for a missionary We are confident that there will be any amount of the Republicans in the mountain part who will not f support the man who Jisnot from the mountains nor doesnt like a mountain man It is a little strange that a man who aspires to X the office of Governor of this great Commonwealth would be so thoughtless as to speak his sentiment s when on a moments refltc tion he could see that it woul cause him to be defeated by at least three thousand more votes i than he would have been They is not a truebiue mountaineer in the State who can swallow Yerkes without thinking of the smallest i mation in which he is heldas the Republican speaker here said by that king And while this is true of Mr Yerkes we find in Goy ernor Beckbam a man who treats his fellowman with such du respect that he is at once caPt vated and only regrets that it is not iuhis power to do more for v Sucha man These are they choose you this day which one you Will vote for The foreigners and missionaries in China are safe now but how long this state of affairs may exist is a question to be answered later The perils of the foreigners grow more serious every hour and it is feared that when the relief columns draw near that all will be massa 9rec The ministers including MrCongeri are all held as hostages j Y r IIf the Republicans think they are going to have easy sailing to carry Kentucky for the State and nation al tickets this fall they are badly mistaken said Mr Thomas Cpstcllo a Cincinnati traveling man last night I have been over the State and have talkedwith men onboth sides of the question and with men who deserted the party last year and I have found in almost every instance that the democrats will present a solid trout TheRepublicabs are not as sanguine- of success as they would make believe add if people vote as they talk Gov Beckham is assured ot election In otherStates the question is flequentlypropoundedIHow wiH Kentucky go and the answer is general that Kentucky is a Demo cratic State and after what has happened at frankfort will repudiate Republicanism forever Mr Costello who travels in vari ous Western Stated was asked lor an opinion as to the result in some of the States which the Republcans had admitted were in the doubtful column 1111 Ohio said he Bryan will pole a great part of the German vote I do not think he can carry the State but he will reduce the Republican majority The Ger mans are opposed to McKinley be cause of his imperialistic ideas The Germans came to America to escape just sirh things as McKin ley is endeavoring to fasten on this country and it stands to reason they will oppose him In Indiana Bryan will have a hard fight but the Democrats are firm in the belief that they will winThey are pre pared to make a tilling fight The same conditions exist in Illinois Democrats eveyrywhere are in better spirits than I have Seen then in years and they seem to think the election of Bryan certain But in Kentucky there is no doubt of the result Courier Journal Benjamin Harrison as a man of strict morality has been compelled to denounce McKinleys course toward Porto Rico as politically and ethically wrong That Repub licangiaut Tom Reed has attacke his partys doings with vim vinegar and vigor Henry V Johnson a brilliant Republican of Indiana is out for Bryan and Webster Davi- of Missouri and hitherto high in the councils of Republicanism is Republicadof Mary qcant stand for McKinley and hundreds of other R s publicans of character and influence will not support their party in its imperial policy Democrats of power who opposed Bryan in 1896 are with him this year on the para mount and only issue the Repub tic or the Empire The Democrats platform will attract more and more patriotic indepeuts to its support as thebsY its sordid commercialism Who says the Democrats

subject of goodroads is being discussed somewhat through the column of your paper and I am glad to see that some interest is being manifested among our citi zens on this important subject Rockcastle needs good roads above everything else at present We go to our neighboring counties and there find turnpikes crossing thecnntyi1different directions and why cannot Rockcastle have some turnpikes I know they as badly needed here as in any other county and worse than in a great many other counties that have al ready built them Why not have Rockcastle up with some of her joining counties Why not have as good roads as they have so we trade and go about our business with some peasure I know that every person wants good roads because good roads are absolutely necessary for any person and for any county nXTo have these good roads it requires some expense and I think that it the people will only consider the matter and give it the proper thought that they will be thoroughly con vinced that it is best to pay the expense and have the good roads It they will just compare our pres ent roads with turnpikes they will see a great change they will see that the turnpikes will be a great deal more help to them than the tax they paYfor the purpose of turnpikerSuppose the turnpikes are built The tax will only be increased fort few years and the taxpayers will hardly miss the extra tax they have paid Very truly J M CRAIG Mr Editor Since began my communicatio- nS SIGNAL Ion turnpikes Ive been theIten any one to see the good roads down there and the pleasure with which one drives over that coun

lifeThegreat trouble is we simply sit down on the stool of donothing peacefully fold our arms and say 4we cant JI IIt is wonderful the amount of time that is spent lamenting over our condition when if we get right down to business and stay with it we could accomplish won dersWeowe this muchto future gen erations even if we could do noth ing for the present And if we go on with it as we should our

ten years as they are run at present Tf there are 2500 road hands in the county and each one of them works six days cutof each year counting it at 50 Cents a day Intel- Years we will have spent 15000
