We are authoized to announce GRANVILLE LEECE as a candidate for Magistrate in the Fifth district composed of Browns and Brodhead voting precincts subject to the action of the Democrats of that district IN one of his Texas speeches the President declared that Could the men of the South and the men of the North meet and mingle they would become tast friends and there would no longer be sectional differences In this the President is doubtless correct Experience has demonstrated the fact time and again Incidentally it is also a fact that whenever a Northern man makes his residence in the South even for a short time he becomes as thoroughly imbued with the im possibility of negro domination as the Southerner sometimes more so At least he has less patience and less compassion for the negro than has his Southern neighbor Had President Roosevelt promised to permit the Southerner to solve the race problem without interference from Washington and without attempted dictation from the Re publican party he could have safe ly prophesied that from that date on nothing more would have been heard of the North and South as sectional opponents However the President will doubtless learn much from his southern trips and the leaders of both parties have al ready learned a great deal It was a noteworthy fact that Senator Dan iels of Virginia was the orator selected to pronounce the eulogy on the late Senator Hoar at the latters home in Worcester Massachusetts the other day and that the Virgin ia Senator who has not only al ways been a loyal southerner and a staunch Democrat but who fought for the Confederacy delivered a beautiful tribute to the statesman who had always voted with his party irrespective of his convic t ionsTHE newspaper boys will likely be slow about

Louis ville CourierJournal IIIn view of the fact that many misleading statements and irre sponsible interviews are being at tributed to me and realizing that I will have to contend with this same trouble in the future I want to make a plain and unequivocal statement as to my position in the fight now in progress I believe that the domination of the machine now assailing me means ruin to the Democratic party I believed this a year ago when they sent to me and offered me their support in my race for the Senate on condi tion that I would let them alone So sure was I that the triumph of this machine meant a turning over of the State to the Republicans that I refused their offer and notified them then that I proposed to make war on them until their power was destroyed no matter what the con sequences might be to my personal fortunes Feeling as I did I would have been a traitor to my party to have surrendered to what I knew to be the most dangerous and most unscrupulous coalition that was ever formed to throttle free expression of the people In consequence of my refusal I have today their bitter and malignant opposition and I would rather ten thousand times go down in defeat in trying to save my state and party than win with their help I want it distinctly and emphatically understood that from now until all the nomina tions for the Legislature are made I shall be on the stump doing all in my power to awaken the people to their danger From that time on my best endeavors shall be giv en to help elect every Democratic nominee whether he is forQr against me My Democracy is too well known for any one to doubt my absolute loyalty to my party at all times and I shall be found fighting its battles aslong as there is brealh in my body whether it returns me to the Senate or not My position briefly then is this Believing that the supremacy of the machine means turning over the State to the Republicans as certainly as the sun rises in the east f shall fight it to the last ditch 1 want to go back to the Senate and feel sure that I shall but if my seat depends on ceasing to warn my people of their danger- I would gladly sacrifice it Every Democratic nominee for the Legislature may feel sure of my earnest and hearty support no matter how he stands in the senatorialrace and when my party has acted in the matter of selecting ablate tick et I will be found standing by her standard no matter if it may seem doomed to ignominous defeat OLD HICKORY CHIPS o By our Associate Editor David Bennett Hill and Henry Gassoway Davis are reported to be leadin the simple life

that we have during this season of theyear The gift of Mr Rockefeller the Standard Oil King of 100000 to the American Board of Foreign Missions has caused considerable e discussion among ministers of the gospel as to the propriety of the Board in accepting the offering of Mr Rockefeller It appears that the rich men of our country are trying to justify themselves before men in making large gifts of monI ey to religious organizations and educational institutions such as libraries and colleges Numerous court decisions have shown such men to be oppressors of the people by conducting their business in such a manner that the mass are made to suffer for the necessa ries of life while they are accumu lating their vast fortunes Christ said to the covatous Pharasees Luke 516 chapter and 15 verse cYe are they which justify yourselves before men but God know eth your hearts for that which is esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God W fare taught from many passages o scripture that offerings from many fluge m an honorable business or oCcupa- tion where honest methods are practiced in earning that nibueysacceptable as a gift or the sight of God but if obtained in coursedSo much for the individual but jwhat about the churches of God which practice methods of sourcees are not only edifying are ut sinful Some churches are so corrupt that they are actuallyusing the house of God as a place iIf cial amusement in order they tlele benefit the Traveling theatrical companies are not only permitted to give their entertain ments in the house of God but areI asked to do so by the weak members of the church Strawberry and ice cream festivals are given inI the house of God also box suppers and many other social functions which certainly do no not belong there We learn by reading g First Corinthians XI chapter and XX verse that Paul rebuked the Church at Cqrenth for eating and drinking in the house of God except the Lords supper We are couuuan ed by Paul in the 34 verse bame chapter to eat at home if weJ are hungry Money given or loaned we learn by reading Luke Vj tyenreceive us no we attend festivals and entert ments it matters not where are not giving our money forsotnethi weI to eat and for fun or amusen Seconp Corinthians IXchapter an 7 verse says God to reth a ful giver Does this mean that He loves the act of giving Imoney for strawberries ice cream suppgrs and theatrical entertai- meats given in the house of God or does it mean that He loves ti one who gives without expectin- to receive any thing but the love of God No sane person can dou but that the passage of scripture referred to means that God loveth the giver who gives not grudgedly or of necessity but without pecting to receive anything in r turn but the love of GoJ Who has promised us salvation ifwe but obey Christ we learn by reading St John 2 chapter 16 verse rebuk ed those who were the house of God a house of merchanI disc and drove them all out of the templeandpoured out the money and overthrew the tables Does this not teach us that we should not buyor sell merchandise or tickets of admission to theatrical ntertainments in the houseof GodIIf eating and drinking and me i chandising in the house of God is omination in tie sight of God then money oltained from such a source should not be rffered Or appropriated in or to the house of Godthe church First Peter 2 chapter and 21 verse For hereunto were ye called because Christ also suffered for you Cleaving you an example that ye should follow His steps Here we are commander to Ifolow tie example of our Savior who suffered and died that we might be saved Let us take Him as our ideal and try to follow in His steps in our business as well as our worship If we are in doubt as to whether a particular act would or would not be pleasing in the sight of God let us ask ourselves what would Jesus do were He in our position Our conscience be a divine gift will not deDeive us impulsesWould theatrical entertainments given in the house of God He never did while He was on earth and as He is an example for us to follow we should not do so Much more could be said against making the house of God a house of men han andihouse of God for any purpose whatever is abominatation and thensame of God Why men and women who profess to be disciples of Christ should be guilty of such conduct is astonishing A TRIED AND TRUE
