PEOPLE c William J KBWCOI Writes Us An Interesting Lette of the G11vesto- nHorror GA ESTON TIE Sept 14 u FriellEdgarI send you copies of Glveston and Houston papers tellife of the awful disaster here last aturday It was awful and bevmd description Just one week agr tonight or one day before the stnnIwas in bathing in the Gulfand the surf was fine Wa k ing home from the beach with a fiieud we admired the beautiful moonlight night and lovely city not thinking that it would be our last time to enjoy the surf and other amusements along the beach front I will not undertake to give you anything like a description of the storms work but will tell you my little experiences I was compelled to vacate my office about 3 p m Saturday the wind was then blowing a gale at the rate of 75 miles an hour arriving at my room I soon discovered the house unsafe and started out for a more safe place ploughing my way through the blinding rain and shoulder deep in water narrowly escaping death from drowning and flying timbers and roofing slate I floated into a house of a very dear friend of mine who was glad to see me Being a larger house than most near by I considered myself safe The wind soon increased to 100 miles an hour and things began to get shaky the water then finding its way into the first story We moved things up stairs as rapidly as possible only to find the roof partially gone and front gallery blown away the wind ow lights began to rattle over the upstairs rooms blinds were blown off but we fought hard to tie them with rope but the wind was too powerful and the ropes were cut as with a knife Seeing that we were helpless it was necessary to aband on the upstairs there was one other struggle that was to close and fasten the front door It re quired three men to hold it closed while the fourth brought a blind with which we finally braced the door and nailed it fast That done we had nothing more to do The entire family with a few friends occupied the back stairs waiting to meet death either from the house caving in or being washed away and drowned the wind hiv ing increased to 120 miles an hour I cannot describe the feeling of that awful night In tact no one can ever unlessnthey pass through such an experience It roes without sajiug that we were frightened but not even the women got excited The windshifted to a different direction and the water began to fall It was eight feet in our yard at the highestIf wind lead kept up for thirty miiutes longer it the rate of 120 miles an hour not a single house would have been left on the island The damage to property is iouiething enormous but the loss of life well that will never be known At daylight Sunday dead bodies were being brought to the morgue It was thought that a good many met death but as the day grew older more wagons were pressed into service until 700 dead bodies had been laid out in the houses used as morgues I saw as many gs twentyfive dead bodies loaded into one wagon Every vehicle in the city was pressed into service for hauling in the dead and wounded but they were still short It was very evident that it woufd be impossible to bury so many so r I it was decided to load hem on barges and dump them into the Gulf Seven hundredwere buried in this way The authorities soon realized that this was entirely too slow and an order was given to bury dead where found and even this was not fast enough as the stench was getting awful and something had to be done to relieve the situa ion On Tuesday every available man was compelled to help burn the dead and since that day hundreds and hundreds ofr men women and children have been burned by piling debris of wrecked houses over the bodies and pour oil pii then touch a match to the pile- There ara hundreds yet to be j riled imila r manner when dun debris As I sit here hiSthe st almost beyond end 1fanc what can a poor flood sufferer do but stand it Along the bay front there are still hunjaredsxrf dead bodies and down the island for miles bodies are thick It is almost imppossi ble to get men enou h to handle the dead It will take two weeks to finish up the work of digging them from the debris in the city limits There were seventy buried by an extra gang along our right of way and more left some washed as far as 14 miles inland The city is under martial law but the negroes had already got ton in their devilish work by rob bing the dead Between fifteen and twenty have been shot for cut ting off fingers and ears from the dead in order to get jewelry One negro was caught with his pockets full of fingers and ears still containing rings and ear rings Nearly all the bodies found not under the debris had their pockets either cut or turned in side out The soldiers have the negroes scared and are afraid to venture out at night For about four miles along the beach front aud about five squares back not a single house stands before the flood these squares were occupied by fine residences The four bridges across the bay that connects the island with the main land are gone and many other things too numerous to mention In simple words our city is a wreck There are thousands to be fed but the country is coming forward in grand style with money and food Some of the poor un fortunates certainly need it In a great many instances whole fami lies were swept away while others lost father mother son or daugh ter I have seen some pitiful sights great strong men weeping over a pile of debris while under neath lay his whole family but no lone will give a helping hand the attention of everyone being turned to those on top or in sight and women by the hundred wringing their hands and crying for some lost one is a common sight I could write for hours and tell about the great disaster but doubt dealIThe old town is by no means dead the carpenters hammer can be heard in ever direction the S Pac R R Co with which I am connected intends to build a new steer bridge across the bay tw- oIlllilesin length The elevators houses are not idle by any means and before many days we will be doing business at the same old stand There are hundreds of people leaving the city More on account of the stenchand afraid of sickness than an thing else I love dear old Galveston and will stay by her till the last If God took me through this one 0 K I have bo fear of tbefl1tiujv Yours truly tl Jt r g Bond Roads With much pleasure I inform my friends the position I hold inregard to t he question of good roads This is a local question one of vital importance and one that to my opinion politics should not have any thing to do in the case It has been said That common sense is the most uncommon thing of all things but if there is such a thing in old Rockcastle it should be ex ercised in this one particular in stance on voting on the subject of raising money to build and mantain turn pikes in this county I was born and reared until I was fifteen years of age in a county where rough roads were unknown where all public improvements were to a high plain But thirteen years ago my father purchased a farm in the western part of this county and the next year moved with his family to it since that time my traveling has been principally confined to the roads of this county but have never gotten use to them yet I will ad mit here that the roads are a great deal better now than then but look at the expense the people have been to in securing this improvement at least six days for every able bodied wan and TO cts tax to every 10000 for quite a number of years and yet have not any good roads So I cant see a shade of a reason why we should not make at this time thirty or forty miles of pikes in this county extending in at least 4 or 5 directions from Mt Vernon s0 as to accommodate every man in the countv with 6 or 8 miles of good road if he desires to go to church railroad county seat or any where else they might wish to go It is an utter imposibility to build a turn pike to every mans door but that is no reason why we can not build thirty or forty miles and have it so it will benefit every body Some may say it will make taxes so high It will raise the tax a little but to some that may object it will not af fect their taxes five cents Then others may say it is not right to vote a tax on those that have some thing like theL N rail load Co if that doctrin be true we should never draw off of the state more than we pay to it Now as to the cost as the country is not very rough the material plentiful and labor cheap it will not cost on an average more than 75000 per mile The L N R R Co will pay nearly half of that Then there can be at least 300000 made up by donation Now to show how much I am interested I win say I am willing to pay my part of the tax let it be built any where it maybe If it is built within a mile of my home I will also donate 1000 and if it is located through my farm- I will put on the roads 100 wagon loads of rock free of charge and would not have to be persuaded much to do even more than tha- Now what are some of the benefits- to be derived from the building of a pike It will give iniployment to the masses of laborers while building It will show to the people of other sections that we are no longer in thermal districts TIerg ibat Kavemduey fb invest will irciK ix iay not merely to speculate iL L i on what we have The price of land will be advanced 50 per cent And the last that I shallmention would be enough to repay the people ifno other benefits would be derived but there are a hundred and one others that could be men tioned if I had the space We could go to church to markets to court in fact any where with some satisfaction and it could not be said ot us any longer that the roads are few and poor and that all the travel is done on horseback Now that those who read this may know whence this come I will close by saying your friend P H Shutts 3003 330 X H LIVINGSTON f- o33 Mrs John Farmer andchildren are visiting relatives in McKee this weekR B

IOO Advertising rates made known on application t nos w j BIiYd2l DEMOCRATIC TICKET For PresidentW BRYA- of Nebraska For VicePresident ADLAI STEVENSON- of Illinois For Congress HON GG GILBERT of Shelby For Governor Gov J C W Beckham of Nelson THE oratorical effort of Dr John Mason Williams last Monday proves conclusively that the God of Hosts slid not intend him for a Congressman Even the Demo crats felt sorry for him and the Re publicans hung their heads in dis appointment Ve do not say this in a spirit of malice because we are his friend and not his enemy We would like to see him succeed in his chosen profession that of surgery In that field there is a bright future for him byproper application But on the political track he is a slow nag leisurely jogging along toward defeat on the 6th of November He was not nominated because of Iris legislative ability nor was he made the nomi nee because of his power to charm the heart and please the ear of the boys from the stump Then why was the banner placed in his hand For one reason and one only and that was because he was young and supposed to have plenty of Golcon des gold which he would gladly use in the race The best thing that can be done for the Doctor is to withdraw him or if that cannot be done then his best friends should join in and help defeat him Then and only then will he make a surgeon of which Rockcastle will c ter be proud Tins years school per capita has been fixed at 245 Under Gov Bradleys administration it was X220 230 240 and last year the yea rof the state campaign it leaped from 240 to 270 Every Democrat last year from Gov Goebel and Judge Black to the f2uce corner politician contended that the great increase in the per capita was an inflation without money to meet it and made puely for politi cal purposes As a result of that reckless act of the Republican official the school fund is short 133 000 Where it not that the Demo cratic officials refuse to allow the deficit to be paid out of the school revinue for 1900 the school teacher would fair badly indeed inducotrous1Editor ip Walton has gone to Lexington to become the Editorinchief the daily Democrat The people of the bluegrass are to con gratulated He will edit a paper bi which they will be proud because he will bring to bear his long experience his wisdom and learning WITHER or not the peopie of Rockcastle want better roads is now left with the voters An election has been ordered for that purpose It is not a political quest ion and cannot be made such Democrats and Republicans alike will endorse the proposition and work to carry it through on the day of election WITH an able array of local workers and organizers led on in the battle by W C Mullins and R L Brown of the County and Campaign Committees the Demo crats bid fair to poll the largest vote ever cast in this county in a presidential race Let every Democrat put his shoulder to thewheel The Joint debate between Hon E T Franks of Owensboro and Hon N B Hayes of Pineville here lasjt Monday was enjoyed by a large crowd of Rockcastle citizens The discussion was both lengthy and spicy filled with many good things Mr Franks is rather imposing wordy and with aery fine voice in fact a fair stumper The only trouble that he is devoid of reaspn and logic He spoke for one hour in his opening speech and consumed most of that time in the vilification of the Democrat party It would be well for Mr Franks and such speakers as he to study ofland a reasonable people will not consider a cause just that defends itself by vituperation However we were glad that he was too much ofa man to attempt to defend the unlawful adjournment of the legislature by Mr Taylor nor did he indorse the chasitg of the legis lators through the streets of Frankfort luring the itter session by Taylors soldiers Hayes was not so oratorical as Franks made a sound and convencing speech and as one Republican put it afterwards that he saw many things of which the Republicans of the county ought to take warning Campaign chairman W C Mullins introduced Hayes in the following apt and thruthful words- Gentlemen and fellow citizens of Rockcastle county after hearing an ordinary little talk by one of our countymeu the distinguished nomine of the Republican party for congress and a little vilification and the advocacy of the gentleman who has just finished of the hang ing af the election officers and commissioners no doubt you are now anxious to hear a speech ther fore I now have the pleasure of introducing to you the Hon Napolean B Hayes of Bell county who will make an
