The spectacle of the utter ruin of an adjoining country, by nature oao ot the most tortile and charming on the globo, would engage the serious attention of tie government and tha people of the United States under any clrcum stances. In point of fact, they hive, a concern with it which Is by no means of a wholly or sentimental character. It lies so near to us as to bo hardly separated from our territory.

The volume of tratio between the United States and Cuba, which in 1883 amounted to about 6 4,000,000, rose In IS93 to about $103,000,000 and In 1831, the year before the present insurrection broke out, amount-t- o nearly ? 9S.0iW.0ja liesldes this large pecuniary stales in tha fortunes ot Cubs, the United Stites finds.

Some of them, though Cubans at heart and In all their feelings and interests, have taken out papers s naturalized citizens of the United Stales, a proceeding resorted ui with a view to possible protection by this government, and not unnaturally regarded with much indignation by the country of their origin The Insurgents arc undoubtedly encouraged and supported by the widespread sympathy the people of this country always and Instinctively feel for every struggle for better and freer government, and which. In the case of the more adventcrous and restless elements of our population, leads in only too many instances lo active and personal participation in the contest. The result is that this government Is constantly called uroa to protect American cltl-zn- s, to claim damages for Injuries to persons and rronerty. now cstlm .ted at many millions of dollars, and to ask explanations and apologies for the acts of Spanish officials, whose zeal for ih repression of robellloa sometimes beto tho blinds them immunities longing unoffending to the citizens of a frlcndlr power. It follows from the same causes that the United States Is compelled to actively police a long line of sea coast against Untnvvful Kxpedltlnns, The escape of which the utmost vigilance will not always sufflce to prevent. These Inevitable entanglements of the United States, with ths rebellion in Cuba, the lare American property Interests altected, and considerations of pMlanth-op- y and humanity in goncral, have led to a vohement deIn various quarters for soma sort ot mand positive intervention on the part of the United States.

The secretary of war, repeats his recommendation, that appropriations for barracks and quarters should more strictly con- ' form to the needs of the service as judged by the department rather than respond to the wishes and importunities of localities Organized State MUlatla.

It is peculiarly gratifying at th3 time to note the great advance that has been made in this Important undertaking since the data conof my annual message to the d gress at the opening of Its second session.

This Is certainly a movement In the right direction: but it ought to bo at onco supplemented by the rebuilding or extensive enlargement of this Improvised prison and tho construction of at least ono more, to be in the southern states. The capacity of tbe Leavenworth penltonttary is so limited that tho expenso ot its maintenance, calculated tt a per capita rate upon tho number of prisoners It can accomodate, does not make as oconomtcal an exhibit as It would if it larger and hotter adapted to were prison purposes: but I am thoroughly convinced that economy, humanity nnd a proper eonse of responsibility and duty toward those whom we punish for violations of federal law, dictate that the federal government should have the entire control and management ot the penitentiaries where convicted violators are ennfined. It appears that since the transfor of tho Fort Leavenworth military prison to Its now uses, tho work previously done by prisoners confined there, and for which expensive machinery has been provided, has been discontinued. This work consisted of tho manuface. ture of articles for army use. now done On all grounds it Is exceedingly desirable that the convicts confined la this penitentiary be allowed to resume work ot this description.

There is consklci able talk at this time in regard to the future conduct of our fellow countrymen, who heretofore acted with the Democratic party, but at the last election left the regular organization. We have not talked with a sufficient number of them to know or say that those thus acting have a common purpose in view, and we are of the opinion there is no agreed concert of action on their part, but simply stand ready to act with that organized party that may show them the greater regard, especially in local matters. We are acquainted personally with most of our fellow citizens who have left the organized branch of the Democratic party, and know the greater part of them to be gentlemen of integrity. With few exceptions their word of promise can be implicitly relied upon. We hardly believed that they should be entirely deprived from acting in political concert with those they formerly affiliated with, should they so desire. We are notified that the greater portion of them, if properly treated, will stand with us in the future. The gold standard burden is sure to prove too burdensome for any material commercial prosperity, and when that becomes evident most of them will be clamorous for bimetallism as recognized and established by our as strong as we were in the past campaign. We do not believe that they were traitors or deserters, strictly speaking, nor should they be treated as such. While we do not contend that they should be specially entreated to return, it ought at least to be known that they will be received back into the fold of the old party, and that too without chiding for past offenses. The Democratic door should stand wide open to all good citizens, regardless of past party affiliation. All who love good government, a happy and prosperous people, should be welcome and invited to act wnh us. fore-father- friends at this place who are always glad to see him. ) 3KT it. P'- - P IJ.

With pure, ent ,day, the women of America have gestive organs will be vigorous, and there been asking for a voice in government When all legitimate arguments against the granting of their reasonable requests have failed, they have been met with the inane apology that when a majority of women want to vote the suffers ge will be conferred upon them. Since the right of petition is the only political right which a disfranchised class enjoys, the inference is that the prerequisite to enfranchisement should be a petition eigned by a majority of all the women of the State. I deny the right of any person or power to demand such a test as a majority petition. The Declaration of Independence does not say, we hold these truths to be that when all men, or a majority of them, shall ask for their inalienable rights they shall receive them. It says that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, and that to secure these rights governments are instituted. If this instrument sets forth ny one supreme proposition of which all others are but corollaries it is the statement that governments are instituted to secure rights. The theory seems to be growing alarmingly prevalent in these latter days that government should confer rights and that only when the demand is so strong that it can no longer safely withhold them. If this be true Columbia is no better than old King John. In all the pages of history, ancient or modern, there is not recorded an instance where a determinant majority of unrecognized persons ever asked for an extension of rights or privileges. A volume would not contain the record of instances in the world's historj'f where an active, aggresshe minority have demended an extension ot rights and privileges and received them. The whole story of the evolution of liberty is but an illustrated sequence of examples where the few have asked and the many received. To confine ourselves to our own country we abould never have had a Declaration of Independence if it had been necessary to have a majority of the colonists declare for it The majority, and especially the wealthy people, in collonial days thought it better to eudure the ills they had than to run the risk of others which they knew not of. At one time during the Revolutionary War there were twice as many Americans in arms against the cause of Independence as there were in the American army. The loyalists in this country always claimed that they were in the majority. In Now York State originally only freeholders voted. Did the poor man unanimously petition for the franchise? Did the poor black man in the State of New York, in 1846, unanimously, or in any other determinate majority, petition for the franchise? Did Abraham Lincoln insist upon a majority petition from the slaves before singing the Emancipation Proclamation? Did the negroes in the South in the days of reconstruction circulate a petition to find out how many wanted to vote? If a majority test is to be required the logic of the situation demands that it be a majority of citizens, both men and self-evidetime-honore- Pure nannnnDDDnnnnnnnnnnna ' c bly, January 27th. 1647-4- to the pres- rich, healthy blood, the stomach and di- will be no dyspepsia.

And this is what we desire to talk about now, and many times more. Be it remembered that the facts and the arguments based upon them, which our party presented, remain unanswered. Who can stand up and argue that the free coinage of silver will make money too abundant in face of the fact that all the gold and silver in the world does not equal the amount of money in the world? What is there "sound" in a numey oystein from which silver is discarded to make room for fiat paper money of the bank? Who can give a reason why we should not first employ all the gold and silver in the world as money before we resort to paper money in excess of the amount of tho two metals? When are the gold standard men going to answsr the fact that France alone maintained the two metals at a ratio of 15 to 1 from 1803 to 1873 by keeping her mints open to both metals for their free and unlimited coinage? When are they going to answer tho fact that the parity was maintained when twice as much silver as gold was produced, and also when twice as much gold as silver was produced, but that it was destroyed by legislation in 1873-when the production of silver was only 10 per cent greater than that of gold? When will the gold editors stop writing about what they are wholly Ignorant of, and read something that would Instruct them? Why don't they read the report of the British Commission of 1S8S, which consisted of six eminent gold monometallists and six bimetal-list- s, who all agreed as to the depressing effect the demonetization of silver has had on the value of all property except gold ? Do the enemies of free coinage of silver hope to prevail without argument and without any of the knowledge on which arguments can be based ? It is amazing to see the contented-nes- s of ignorance which . prevails among those who are foremost in the denunciation of free coinage. But the people will read, and listen, and think. They will educate themselves, as millions of them have been doing.

Then the auditors gao vent to their feelings, and not onlv heaps of money was put into the baskets but men and women took off their rings, unfastened their watches and threw them into the baskets and on the platform. It was a remarkable scene, and such a one as probably will never be equaled in this country. Mrs. Beecher recalls the event with wonderful vividness in her article in the Christmas Ladies' Home Journal, when she tells the whole story of "When Mr. Beecher Sold Slaves in Plymouth Pulpit." The scene itself is remarkably well brought to the eye ol the reader by a striking illustration made by De Thul-stru- p from material furnished the artist by Mrs. Beecher. HISTORIC SLAVE AUCTION.

BM 'Not unless you bring her North,'replied Mr. Beecher; I will be responsible for her, and she shall be lawfully purchased or sent back.' The answer was a com pliment, to which Mr. Beecher said laughingly referred as the only tribute ever paid to him by a 'If Henry Ward Beecher has given his Jea word,' wrote the dealer, 'it is better than a bond.'

President Lincoln took a lively interest in the case of Pinky, the details of which were related to him by Chiel Justice Chase and by Mr. Beecher. I was not in Washington with my husband at the time, and therefore cannot verify the story that the sale of Pinky inspired President Lincoln to issue the almost Divine proclamation of emancipation. slave-owne- r, ID 'sJsiMMmijI iiTrailfiUraBrBrTEU mm -lJ :Lhzlh:3:lILS -, iinsjinrSiiiirSiinRinin - " I K 'NO S 9 N!l)l A sue6jeg pg pueo sadoosopj put?

"Well, I don't know, Dana, unless it is to illustrate Dickens." "Exactly, and Bok walked in just now and asked me to do it." Gibson went to Europe on his wedding trip and reinaiued in London for six month. The he worked away at his Dickens Sketches. Upon his return a few weeks ago he delivered the first drawings of the series to The Ladies Home Journal, and the initial one will be printed in the Christmas issue. The finished drawing are said to be remarkable portrayals.

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages and that is Catarrah. Hall's Catarrah Care L the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity. Catarrah being a constitutional disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrah Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system, thereby distroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the, patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in its curative powers, that they offer one Hundred Dollars for any case that it fails to cure.

WOMAN'S DUTY. "Woman, since time began, has not been a leader, but a follower; and looking back over ancient and madiaeval history where we find exception that woman's influence has always been a pernicious one the path behind her marks by disaster and the blasted soul's of the men who followed. The world's purest and noblest women have reigned in the home; their sovereignty rarely reaches beyond the hearthstone. From time immemorial beauty has been a fatal dower to woman. I speak not of mere prettiness, that is not beauty; I mean a woman whose perfection of face and form has as is rarely seen as a compliment that indefinable of infinite variety; that wonderful magnetism that gave Egjpt's Queen her unparalleled power. History repeats itself, and 'tis little to-da- during 1897. Jerome K.

The groom is a cousin of Mr. William Bennett, ono of our most substantial citizens, and is a young man of fine character and sterling business qualities, holding the position of teller in the Farmers National Bank. He is too well known to require further remarks, being a genial favorite both in busi ness and social circles. The bride who has often visited in Richmond, being the guest of the Misses Crutcher, is Mt. Sterling's most popular young lady, possessing besides a beautiful face, a most lovable disposition, which has made her a favorite witii both old and young. Mr. Bennett might well bo proud of the girl of his choice. May their lives be prosperous and happy is the wish of the Climax. Teachers Association. ceipts for the same period 2439 hhds.

The governor refuses to talk now, but may give out an interview when the crisis is reached. Meantime, it is faid. the governor will call an extra cession at such time as it will be most disastrous to Hunter, who is Todd's chief political ally. Charged With Attempted Kobbrry.

The bonded period, under the federal law, is eight years, and the state tax law provides that whisky shall be exempt from taxation till it is taken out of bond. The county of Franklin filed suit against E. II. Taylor, jr., and other distillers, asking for a construction of the law and contending that the law was a discrimination, and in conflict with the state constitution. The court upholds this view and decides that the tax must be paid annually. 9. I Fbankfoht, Ky., Dec tion of Kentucky. ' .... 8. s I I . " AikAc .
