surely are not going to quit when as I am informed a petition is to be circulated this week for the purpose of getting signers enough to ask the County Judge to call an election for the purpose of taking the sense of the voters as to whether they desire a tax levied for the purpose of building turnpike- sS you see somebody has been doing something and I would not be surprised if we fellows who have been advocating this matter thro the SIGNAL are not the cause to a great extent of the goods work going so lets keep it up till the election is o ver and it has carried almost unanimously I am in formed by lawyers vli6 profess to know their business that about twentyfive thousand dollars is all we can raise at the present time This amount will be supplemented by donations from various parties ranging all the way from one dol lar to one hundred dollars Al ready different parties have Signified their willingness to use their influence in this matter to the amount of S1oo each and if this is the case how can any one objectI to paying the small he will have to pay Now my iellotf citizens dont get it into your heads that there is any poli tics in this matter it is simply a plain business proposition in which we are all interested and Republicans Democrats Prohibi tionist and Populists are doing their best to make a success and they are going to do it too As for my politics I am a pikeist from Pikeville and expect to vote my sentiments at the coming Novem her election if McKinley and Bryan are both defeated Now when the petition is presented to you sign it and when the election rolls round vote for turnpikes and- og home feeling that vou have done your duty Nothing that could take place would be more produc ive of good results than pikes for this county and sooner or later wc will have them If expenses ji the county generally were reduced a they should be even with tilt present rate of taxation we won soon have enough surplus to buil several miles of pikes so ifW dont get the money one way w shall get it some other It will ojr p tainly be a go and the sooner the- better When you want pleasant physic try the new remedy Chamberlain Stomach and Liver Tablets The are

Beckham of Nelson Mr Yerkes said in his Bowling Green speech that the election law is the true issue in this campaign If this is all they have on which to make their fight what will they do when the law is so amended that even a Brownie cant kick As the Signal has often said the leading Republicans dont want this law re pealed and havnt been sincere at all in claiming they wanted it done The principal part of his speech was on that line and the questions asked by the Interior Journal were nearly all passed by without even being mentioned What 1 pity ft that a man who has heretofore borne ilie imputation as a gentler matt that John W Yerkes has must be humilated by having to bear all the sins of the Republican party tor the past year How the i mighty has fallen I t Ve certainly sjHpgttti3e wiihhmi for we like him but poor Tray was beaten for o no other reason than being caught in bid company and so will the handsome man from Danville be forced to take the consequences of his action in accepting the uomina tion on a platform which endorsed murder government by the bay onet suspension of the right of habeas corpus chasing the Court of Appeals from the Capital galloping the Legislative about over the streets of Frankfort and doing ten thousand other things too numer t 1i ous to mention which seem more like the work of the Boxer than that of enlightened people Poor i fellow fpbor fellow1 hata pit vi what a pity I tff Got Beckams speech at fetid erson Q 1i last Monday was a mast r erful argument on the issues of tile V day and especially so as regards the Kentucky campaign He shows up Taylorism in its true light froiu start to RiffiaiidAtti onslrates yd Ubtit the possibility of k1 m t iln is 1d1 f vvisjkmj i iJi far beyond his years arid a sure winner in November He said it part It was bad enough for the 1 Republican leaders to commit the crimes they did last wittijEr in this state but it is far vurse that the representatives of that party after all that had happened should meet in State convention and deliberately and with premeditation indorse all that had been done It was awful to kill in cold blood a man who had been elected Governor ofUhis great State it is infinitely worse that they should indorse the conduct of those who stand indicted in our courts for complicity hills murder No one outside of this state would hardly believe the Republican party would endorse in their con vencion the crimes spoienot by Gov Beckham but tis true and tis a pity tis true No one but a fiend in carnate will uphold the assassination of his fellow man and those who pose as saints and en dorse such a course are hypocrites of the deepest dye In his accounts covering theIo 000 turned over to him by the Taylor administration Gen Dan Collier returns items for 600 worth ofonIons and 34 tons of rice The Hopkins ville Kentuckian figures on these returns that each soldier during the first 40 days must have eaten 4 T4 onions day and during the last 60 days there were 18 onions for each soldier while 376 tons of rice boiled down would dam the Ohio river or fill the custom house in Louisville about three times There is also an item of 4000 sides of bacon or ic sides a day for the 409 soldiers during the first 40 day and 40 sides a day during the last 60 days This would be nearly half a side of bacon a day for each soldier during the last 60 days Besides there was an item of 365 worth of whisky in addition to numerous prescriptions cf 250 each Gen Collier should cut and come again He gave the soldiers too many onions too much rice and an over supply ot bacon but is short on whisky To have gotten hisI sojers up to the fighting point would have re quired a great deal more bug juice than he reportsI J The Hon Lewis McOuown covered the whole case both National and State when he said at Russell ville Monday Two political issues of supreme importance have arisen from the events of the past twelve months The one is National and the other State Shall the Nation exist as a republic or as an empire Shall the Commonwealth be governed by law or by arms The spellbinders can ho vlYljOP and mix things until nobody knows where lies at JJ but these two is sues will stand out preeminent and paramount ears on the ass head Ifas Mr Yerkes argues a vote foi the Democratic nominee will be approval of Goebelism and all that the term implies including Beck hams personal profiting from the Goobel election law wilLnot avote for the Republican nominee be ap proval of Talorism and all the term implies including the assassination lot Goehel

notional issue spoke briefly of trusts corporpora ions money powers imperialists Porto Rica tariff bill and the Philippine Islands Then came to our own State and district and in a most pleasant way told the andience one and all why they should work and vote for the election of the Hon J C W Beckham for Governor and lIon G G Gilbert of Shelby for Con gress Mr Rothwell was very conservative in his remarks and at times related facts connected with the last four years of Republican rule which were so rediculous that even the Republicans had to join in and take a good laugh one being the pardoning of a man from Lincoln by the name of Fer rell by Daddy Worthingtou who had never asked for a pardon and at the same time serving a life sentence Go to Cox Brothers for Boots Shoes Groceries c POSSUM
