U j T ouu1 ern0In in4L VOLUME xv tiiT VERNON ROCKCASTLE COUNTY li 1 FRIDAY OCT 26 1900 NUMBER 5 n TELL MY FRIENDS TO BE BRAVE ARi FHARLESS AND LUYAL TO THE GREAT COMMON PEOPLE J Tlie frpts ajid- TJie Druimner John M Quinn to the Ccmmercial Travelers and Hotel Mens Anti TtustLeagu Oll1e 350000 traveling men in the United States 35000 have been thrown oujtf of employment by the trusts and 25000 more have been compelled to accept a reduct ion of over 30 per cent in salary and half of the 25000 whose wages have been reduced have been taken from the road This item of itself is important but it is of small im Fort compared with the great loss to the country at large If 60000 Commercial travelers have been so injuriously affected by the trusts the small merchant the great middle class which is the bone and sinew of a Republichass- uffered infinitely more And if theuiddle class has suf fered the laborer who is dependent on the middle class has been compelled to bear his share of the loss WHAT IT COSTS Let us see whit the enforced joy a policy which within the last two years has lobbed them of 50 000 of their most liberal potrans idleness of the Commercial traveler means The statistics have been conservatively prepared by the president of the Travelers Asso ciation who shows that it repre sentsan annual loss ofr 14000000 This means that r 114000000 withdrawn from the annual distribution of money in legitimate chan nels of trade The items are divTded into a loss of 27000000 to the railroad ex press and sleeping car companies an amount equal to the entire stir plus earnings of the railroad com psanies of the United States for the year 1898 But the railroad magnates who are Hot worrying about the boys along the lne will get their money back by the trusts have no fear The hotels ofthe country are in a different position They must suffer a dead loss of 28000000 How does Mine host enjoy the medicine Will he vote to indorse the party which is responsible The traveling men have lost 60 000000 in salaries Sixty jmillion dollars a year is quit an item to the families of men who have been compelled to live a life of openhanded generosity and whose sayings must necessarily be small NOT MONEY GRABBERS The commercial traveler has not been a hoarder He has not been a moneygrabber His value his employer rested upon the friendships which he won His firm expected him to be popular It expected him to hold up his end in the interchange of courte sies and hospitalities along the line As a rule he was a man of person al prides and his sense of honor stood between him and a parsimonious regard for the dollat When the trusts struck him down without warning and sent him adrift without sympathy he was indeed lucky if he stood even with the world Crtes of thats so I speak of the commercial trav eler because his more than another v class represents the generaj condition of the country He is the barometer which tellsofcoma mercial conditions Take an honest assay of the manhood of the industrial and commercial world and the traveling man is the re suit If the commercial travelers as a class are faring well the country is prosperous If their num bens and salaries are increasing the masses of the people are moving upward toward a higher prosperityr 4 If IN the other hand the num bers and salaries are decreasing the general prosperity is on the de dine If the trusts have taken 60000 ooo a year from the commercial tavelers and 28000000 a year tlluchhaveIheyprises which found the drummer a generous customer EVERYBODY LOSES youjgrig a piofitable patron The hackman the drayman and the transfer companies of the United States lime lost over 50 ooo customers Nor should out trust friends be businessIted to the adornment of the commercial traveler for he was a natty man nor the restaurants which fed him for he was a virnle and ofttimes a hungry man nor the cigar dealers who ministered to his postprandial pleasure for he was a sociable Havanaloving man whose after dinner enjoyment scat tered coin along his pathway from sea to sea Applause Ando we might enumerate the long list of callings jvhich are di rectly affected by the blow which struck down the commercial traveler We might speak of them catagorically from the proprietor of the firstclass hotel to the cater er of the humblest lunch counter from the barber to the bootblack and having completed the list ask of those affected how they en joy this policy How much do these various call ings lose annually The poorest mathematician wilt have no difficulty in approximating the amount Make the daily allowance for each commercial traveler so low as to reach the level of parsimony and the annual sum will run far into the millions The community large is in t terested MR STEVENSONS ESTIMATE Says Bryan Has 189 Votes With Ito Others Doubtful Adlai E Stevenson who return ed to Chicago Monday from his campaigning trip through the East ern States spoke enthusiastically of the Democratic activity in th States through which he had passed Mr Stevenson made the flat footed declaration that the Dem ocrats would carry Indiana and he added Ohio should be put down very s likely to give its electoral votes for Mr Bryan To my mind the two great doubtful States which lean more strongly to the Demo cratic than to the Republican side in this fight are New York and Ohio J Mr Stevenson then made the following estimate of the situation as it stands today For McKinley California 9 Connecticut 6 Iowa 13 Maine 6 Massachusetts 15 Michigan 14 Minnesota g New Hampshire 4 North Dakota Oregon 4 Penn sylvania 32Rhodelsiand Ver wont 4 Wisconsin 12Wyoming total 138 For BryanAlabama 1 I Arkan 4GeorgiaKentucky 13 Louisiana S Maryr 7Montana3 North Carolia 11 South Caro 2TexasISUtah3 DoubtfulIllinoiss4

JONES Counts 263 Votes Certain For Bryan and 87 More Doubtful In an estimate of the probable result of the national election furn ished the Age Herald Chairman J K Jones of the National Com mittee says regarding reports he has received at the Democratic campaign htadquarters From these reports I feel satisfied that the Democrats will carry Ala bama Arkansas California Colorado Delaware Florida Georgia Idaho Indiana Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maryland Mississippi New York Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada North Carolina South Carolina Tennessee Texas Utah Virginia Washington and West Virginia making a total of 263 electoral votes- TbeRepublicans will carry Connecticut Iowa Maine Massachusetts New Hampshire North Da kota Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island Vermont and Wisconsin with a total of 103 electoralvotes These States are reasonably in doubt Illinois Michigan Minne sota South Dakota Wyoming and New Jersey with 87 electoralvotes Of the doubtful States I regard the chances of the Democrats to be better in Illinois Michigan and South Dakota I think the Repub Iicanshave the upperhand in the others As I said at the beginning it is impossible to accurately gauge the result of a national election in advance but as close as I can get at it by the information I receive daily from trusted associates in every corner of the country I feel abso lutely satisfied that Bryan and Stevenson will be elected and that the States I have named will vote in the manner indicated CLAIMED BY DEMOCRATS Majority of Twentyfive Votes Predict d In the Next House What is really the first definite statement given ou rv the Demo cratic managers regarding the gen eral situation was made Monday night in an interview with Secre tary Kerr of the Congressional Committee The drit of sentiment is all our canesee ut victory for both our national and legislative tickets The general situation is improving all along the line The fight has been a hard one but we are confident that we now have our congressional districtsin such shape that we are absolutely sure of a majority of at least twentyfive in the next House ofltheducted in a dignified but neverthe less an aggressive manner and I honestly believe that Mr Bryan is sure to be elected President of the United States on November To those who are not in touch with the real situation the true drift of sentiment will seem almost incredible Our advices from all pans of the country indicate that the voters who were for Mr Bryan four years ago are for him now and in addition there are thousands and thousands of voters who have deserted the Republicans for his standard and thetide is still running THE NATION IN PEfelL costlyIshould hat e been avoided by vreLognjzing the Mt right of the people to rule them selves and under the imperial poi icy now for the first time proclaimed to the country and to the world the president inaugurates war in the far distant East without the authority of congress and in defiance of the supreme law of the nation and has made and prosecuted war and proposes to make peace with all the authority of the czar of RussiaThe nation is thus in peril from the threatened subversion of the sovereign power of the land that is supporting the concentration of capital agrinst the interests of labor that is debauching our political system by the open collection of millions of money from protected trusts to expend in the national political contest and that has in augurated reign of reckless profligacy and extravagance unexampl ed in the history of the nation It must be halted by the people if they would preserve their own government of the people by the people and for the people and l- an be done only by the election of William J Bryan as the next presi deutCoL McClure in

relatives are arraigniSfr ing the SIGNAL in harsh terms be jcause it nierely incidentally re ferred to his Junction City escapade We have no desire whatever to misrepresent Dr Williams because we are his friend arid not his enemy We attribute though some sense to the managers of Dr Williams campaign because they know what was done and said on that unfortu nate day for Dr Williams and have said nothing We have been generous with our fellowtowns man during the campaign We have been furnished information T from Louisville concerning his conduct i there but we icfused to pub lish it We have received very t damaging proof from our neigh tbor town of Stanford yet we have not published it While we be lieve the people ought to know f these things and they should have weight with the people in casting their votes yet we have withheld jf them from the columns of the SSIGNAL We also have informa r vtion concerning his conduct in h San Francisco on his return from the Philippine Islands and that information was furnished us by a Republican still we have said noth ing atout that Our motto attditJatall times adhere to the truth bu as we are accused ot tell lug a base lion the Doctor we v now charge him with conduct that A should defeat him at the pols o We propose to vindicate ourselves I t and show that wtiai wprint one Jweek we can prove the next if t necessary and we say now that V for the attack on the paper andf that o lydQ we publish this charge for we prefered to let those w things go unnoticed in this paper t fc but we do not propose to sit idly itJ iand hear or Csuch attacks on thjs paper and J syl nothing A igf j 8c t t y H 0 few hotheaded supporters and ctose relatives of the Doctor are re sponsible and are the cause of this editorial ad thev only tttcha r ge that on Wednesday June 27th last Dr John Williams the Republican nominee for Con gress left Mt Vernon on the noo- ntriinJor Louisville to secclrea drill That he got on a drunk in thef City and on Friday juuejf29th he reacned Junction City in a mot ly condition With hat off hair disheveled coat did vest off collar and necktie off and with suspendeis hanging down over his hips he left the smoking depart ment and went onthe platform of the station falling in every direction and used language that insulted every decept woman in Kentucky that the language used by him was in the presence of ladies that were in the rear coach and two of those ladies live in Rockcastle county that he Insult r ed men as well as ladies that his bottle was finally taken from him and broken that he was finally forced by three strong men back into the smoking car which he had left that he came on through Mt Vctnon to the quarry below town and on his way back to tovvn Jate in the evening he fell from his horse and was found in a fence corner We regret that we are placed ia this position and have to deal so plainly but as we have told nothing but the truth we do not propose to sit idly by when it is being said that we have lied when the charge we make can be so easi ly proven Now if this charge is not true the columns of this paper are open to Dr Williams rto deny it The space in our paper will cost hill nothing what ever and we will gladly publish his denialjdf one he can make We wish he could prove tha it is not sbV We hopethat we will not be forced to indulge in such charges any more but boys and gals let us say to you now that whenever and wherever you attack the SIGNAL it will always be found able to defend itself ON a large poster and under the flash head lines of Redhanded Mountaineers we find a state ment supposed ito have been said by Senator joe Blackburn as fol lows If I had my way I would throw a dynamite bomb under the Eleventh district and blow it into Hades Blackburn denies in a private letter to us that he ever made any such statement and shows that it is a wilful misrepresentation made onlyto deceive the people and to poison their minds He says there are man good people in the moun tains but they were not in that bandthat took Frankfort last year Carlo Lyttle of Manchester says that 1500 armed ruffians were take itc Frankfort and when he said that he did it as Jim Howards attorney Jim Howard is from the very heart of the mountains but all the people are not like Jim Howard thatlive in the moun tains Caleb Powers is from the i very heart of the Mountains but i t t f alCthe people are not like liim Nor is it true th tall eople in the mountains are like thehr50o afmed ruffians and no Democrat will say that When they refer to the mountains at all they speak only of that ruff moonshine element thatwfcut to Frankfort tinder the guise of civil liberty to t kill off the Bemocraticimembers pf the legislature y J i j The statement ofriS D Jew s hi tjintroducing Wednesday high thaI the Signal said Dr John Mason Williams ouglifnpt have been nominated because he didnt know Geo Johnson was a wilful misrepresentation and an absolute falsehood But

tn frSunday Thespeech of Hori Frank Peak at thisplaLe lant week was atten tively listened to by both Demo crats and Republicans and the most unreasonable Republican could not gainsay one word said by thistgentleman All admit to the truthfullness of his argument I see an article on good roads written by some one signing as fax Payer setting forth as hen doubt thinks stropg argument in favor 01 the bond issue and seems to think that all parties not seeing as he does are against their own interests and says that some that are opposed to those bonds say the promoters of the pikes pro pose to start in about four ways from Mt Vernon This tax payer says that no such thing was ever thought of Say they propose to build a pike from the Laurel line to the Lincoln line and another from the Pulaski line to Madison line Now Mr Tax Payer tell the people Un plain words where you propose to bgin those pikes Do you propose to begin at the line of those counties named and build the road through by way of Mt Vernon or do you propose to be gin those roads at Mt Vernon and build them towards those county lines That is one question we in the ccuntry want you to answer plainly Then you thy those bonds will be readily paid off and in a few years actually have surplus Now we in the count y cannot see just how that can be when the interest on those bonds will amount to 1200 per annum Now we in this part of the county want good roads but we want them all over the county and are honest in the belief that we will not get them by advocating this pike question In the first place there will be a rock crusher to buy and experienced hands to run it and surveyors to locate the pikes you propose to build and by the time you get r ady to go tQ work on the pikes onethird of the money for which those bonds are sold willbe ex hausted Then after the few miles of pikes are bnilt that the money will build that is left the taxpayer will have to be taxed to keep up those few miles of turn pikes to gether with a tax to still keep up the county roads My opinion is that to take the money you propose to expend on those pikes and put out on ths county roads w would see a great deal betters results than the few miles of pike that could be built with this moneyV But we are willing to listen to vttie arguments of Mr Tax Payer but w e want the questions anweredso there will be misunderstanding it BROQHEAO t x
