by HIder Davis Norton Co are threshing all the wheat ill this part and the yield is good and quality excellent Since reading the proceedings of the trial of Caleb Powers we have arrived at these conclusions in the matter That there was at no time such a man as William Goebel that if there ever was he is not dead and that if dead Jack Chinn or Bill Nose killed him or he has gone into voluntary exile We see from noose paper ref ports that the Deocrats willre peal or modifiv at no distant day that horrible 7headed Iohorned forkedtailed fireytongued slimy billed Goebel election law and if they will let me draw the substi tute there will be no trouble in the future but I have but little time to spare in small matters give us a good and a just law bet ter than we have ever had if possible I I incidentally remarked in a re cent article that we paid for court house and jail in about six years and kept up our countys expenses they costing 16000 And now I wish to call your attention to the fact that we only paid 65C to yoc on the hundred dollars of taxable property Now we pay 950 and notoue public enterprise on hands 0 but one says We are paying a big road taxtrue Brother howInear the tax with the militias work has come to making and keeping good roads just make a trip from Mt Vernon to the Pu laski line via the Somerset road and you will readily see and I am of the opinion that this is one of the best worked loads in Rock toofDo you have any idea of the amount spent for road purposes tsinvestigate Then tell us how lioty near we are to good roads and then Ill tell you why we fall so short Should our Legislature deal with the School Book question at the called session let them be careiul as to changes for to force the people of Kentucky to buy an entire new series of text books at once would work great injury or hurt to them But that we are swindled by the American Book e hutItbereremedy worse than the disease The present good crop of wheat has stimulated our farmers

house and other prop erty here and I am of opinon that he will find a purchaser BUCK VARNON 0 S Good Roads MR EDITOR Since my last communication Ive talked with a great many peob pIe concerning pikes and it seems that almost everv one is in favor of them I have yet to find one who objects Of course they dont Know when they are talking to me ilaboutfellow who is writing to the SIGNAL under the nomdeplume of A Citizen but you bet I am and I shall keep it up until this thing is a go or till you get tired andrmakefne quit When we think of the ways in which every one from the highest to the lowest willie benefitted by turnpikes it does seem that it is a waste of time a ud space to say more but for fear there are those who doubt it will probably not be a miss to keep up the fight What is the trouble with you Buck I notice you failed to say anything in last issue of the SIG NAL concerning pikes or other wise You must not back down on the pinch of the game when it seems everything is going our way When we get a pike built between this place an Possum Hol lers get in your buggy and come over to see us and we will talk politics and religion and have a fd general good time Be certain that you bring Mrs Varnon along to spend the day with my wife You know there is nothing like being sociable I have been told that a few peo ple are of the opinion that Mt Vernon is trying to get this done for the special benefit of is own people and not for the good of the people in general when the fact is those who live along the railroadcan get along better with out pikes than any one else while those living faitherest away are the ones who will receive the great est benefit therefrom The man who lives only one mile from town can manage some way to get there while he who lives ten miles away must wait in winter timeand wait no telling how longtill the mud dries up Ot course we want all the rail roads and turn pikes we can get but ifwe had to do without one of them we could better afford to give up the railroads than trot to have pikes The Road Commissioners Over Veers and everybody else who take any pride in building up his county should appoint himself a coui- mittee of one to see that this is a success and not hold back and think some oiie else is going to do it at all Get up and get a move yourselves A CITIZENon k t 14 T R faq b Trusts and Children- i i j UaRaAI OHhi

Aug 28th IQOO The only subject to be considered 2 is th6b modification or amendment of the Goebel election law Only one subject is embraced in the proclamation so that confusion and a session of unnecessary length t Mnay be avoided THE Standard Oil Company to day controls onenfth of the cash j of the nation At first blush we 0can hardly realizewhat that means but if we stoP and think for a mo 1 ment we are made to contemplate with and dread tlleftureofa nation inwliicjh the principal part of our wealth is soon to be aggregated Into the hands of a few One r fifth of the cash of the United States Do you know what it means No wonder yCjare becom ing frighteuedat imperialism The money sharks find that their field of operation is soon going to be small and other people must be conquered to help fill their coffers with filthy lucre The history of the world shows that where the t wealth of a nation was concentrat ed in the hands ofa few that that nation sooner or later went like the Roman Empire We are not surprised to see so many de serting McKinley when he stands for everything which favors the rich and condeninsre everything that htps to lessen the burdens of the poor But we are of the opin ion that McKinley is not so bad he is simply a weakkneed brother and when the Standard Oil Coin- J pany orany other Company want A favor McKinley hasnt the backbone to resist What a stet from Lincoln to McKinley It only takes a short time to travel fioni the sublime to the rediculous MARK HANNA has become ext I cited at the outlook and has decided to take the stump for McKinley- etc If Mark only knew it his strength doesnt Jayn his head noboday ever accused him of ordinary intelligence His fort is bis money and among every j it thing that has peen said about him r no one ever charged him with pe s hunousness when it comes to handa ling campaign funds But it seems goingin the Republican ranks notwith stautling all his boodle A mansf peig1iors should know him and4f t ftheJoplttof Ohio cant swallow r f h Mark and Willie what should pep pie of other States do in the prem ises Why repudiate them of course Bryans majority should be so overwhelmingly large that there cant be a shadow of a doubt left as to the peoples views on changing our form of government from that of a Republic to an Em pire Wehave all along advocated an extra session of the Legislature to amend the election law and we still favor it Only a few days since we heard one of the leading Re publicans1 this countyan offic ersayiVe dont want it repealed And tt more truthful stat ment was neverjnade Republican speakers rear and plunge and foam at the mouth about how bad they want the law repealed but we are glad to know there are yet honest Republicans who will tell the the truth about the matter What the Republicans dont want us to do we want to do So lets amend this law and thereby rench from them the only weapon with which they have to fight us No matter whether there is one word of truth in their argument with a great many it has the desired effect It is not every one who takes the trouble to look up their things but a great many are content to take some one elses word and time or not time it has the same effect It is really amusing to hear some of the Republicans who never read the election law tell you its weak point If we knew as little about it as some people we could mention we would keep our mouth closed But when the Legislature meets in extra session on August 28 the law will be amended Jeneral News Eighteen babies died in Mil waukee from heat The Chinese
