jtorial from the Southwestern Develop ment News published in Muskogee Oklahoma in which we find a few mild thrusts at Mr Bryan The editorial tells us thit vot inS for a President IS a very serious business and hundreds pf thousands of Bryans admirers will applaud his writJ ten and oralutterances and vote for the other fellow The first part of this sentence is very true voting for a President is a serious b siAessI Every intelligent man will admit that that is true but why should v e believe f that hundreds of thousands of admirers will applaud Bryan and vot for the other fellow Lets see In 1896 the f total counted vote for Mr I ryan wasI 6502925 the total counted vote for I Mr JIcKiney was 7104779 Bryan i received a million and a half more votes hr in 1896 than Cleveland received in 1884 In f8s8and in 1892 Clevek rids vote Jacked a million or more of reaching vthe Bryan vote in 1896 DOjnot these figures make it appear that hundreds iofr thousands of Bryans adr liters not only applauded him but voted for him It is admitted by many pe iple who tsire now friendly toward Mr BryanI but who were unfriendly tow rdhim in II1896 that hundreds of thousands of Bryans admirers who applauded his written and oral utterances and who yoted I for him did not get tlieir votes T counted The city of Louisvi le where the Bryan ticket did not ave one election officer gave abou 12000 I majority for McKmley II is noVi said by some of those who helped to putupthe nefarious job that Bryan carried Louisville by a majority of notes than 5000 In this manner they voted for the other fellow1 A little further along the News pro jpounds this serious question And then how can Bryan hope to win in 1908 when he failed m 1896 and If this question were answered 1900I ng4Cthe third time is Cham would bq just as much se isein thee answer as thereis in the question The editor of The News is doubtless not aware that the cow tried to jump over the moon seventeen times efore she finally succeeded The log cof the editor of the Southwesterr Develop men News sHI at first you dont succeedyou MUST NOT try try w again And the News ubes two more interrogation points Ther again many Democrats cjaim thClrJcampa1gI1tion of trusts an0 corpora tions tariff reductions immigration re strictions ad infinitum Assuming this to betrue will the not pro cure Democratic votes So that i the Republicans have usurped Democratic principles in addition to tieir own which the Democrats in turn have not appropriated how can the lemocrats hope to gain in the arrangement Certainty many Democrats claim that the Republicans have stolen their campaign measures They not only 4daimbut Democrats wiH swear to it uppn a stack of bibles The thief has been caught wth the floods upon him H Assuming this tdbe true will the Republicans not procure Democrat ic votes May we askvhywhy would a Democrat vote the Republican ticket because the Republican party stole the Democratic partys campaign measures Such reasoning is absurd 15appropriating its own use the Republican party be comes an imitator and a pretender Democrats will not vote for the cand dates ofsuch a party The conclusion of the Nwsis that since Democrats have been robbed they will pat the rob ber upon the back and bid him God speed We infer from the latter lines of the above paragraph that the editor of the News believes that since the Republi cans advocate some Democratic princi pIes and some Republican principles and that since the Democrats advocate naught but Democratic principled it wijl be easy to persuade Democrats to vote the Republican ticket From such reasoning it is evident that the Okla horiia editor believes it possible to catch a great many Democrats acomin and a gwine May we not suggest that Democrats will not be fetched with urnongrel bait They refuse toHbit except when the bate is of on blood MR KNOTTJS ADVICE Mr Knott of the Louisville Evening Post is very actively engage at pres ent in giving Democrats advice telling the boys what they should do and what they should not do He wants one wing of the Democratic party to capture the Lexington convention and he then would advise the successful wing to put on boxtoed boots and proceed to kick the other wing but of the convention Mrr Knott objects to a recognition of McCreary and he is very much con cerned left the party make the very fatal mistake of recognising MT Watterson and The CourierJournal and Mr Haldeman and The Tines He tundertakes to show why a black eye should be given to about 30000 Democrats and suggests that all the sweets oftneconventIon be poured on th pan cakes of just a few of our loyal fellow citizens Mr Knot s effort in this directiori is wasted bitterness He is barking up theI wrong tree he is yelling sick em to i200000 Democrats among whom there is not a single hound That Lex ington convention is going to be beauti fully harmoniousa howdydo handshaking Godblessyou gathering Says the Hartford Herald There is hardly a Republican in Ohio county who will not admit that iiffhere werlj any county officers to be chosen this year the Democrats would win by an oldfashioned majority Then why not make this sentiment unani motfs and carry this county for Bryan in the same way It would make it possible to do it over again Demo cratic next year And the next IAnd Ohio county is from 500 to 800 Republican appropriations authorized by 1e amount to 1008804894 Debt To Mr Johnson yn Washington in particular arid the Nation in general owe a debt of grati tude to the Hon Ben Johnson of Barelstown for his efficient instrumentality in securing legislation for the ex tending of the car lines to the Union Station which in its longdistance iso lation from traffic has been a bugbear and a laughing stock Mr Johnson a member of the District Committee in his little five minute speech upon the mu h mooted point in a direct and forcible way so clearly presented the case that the extension was conceded at drice and the natives rejoice rand Mrs Ben Johnson and their three attractive young daughters have won for themselves a high place in nation l and social regard during their deb t tyear at the Capital Both en tertained and entertaining they haye ben important factors in the brilliant affairs of the season Mr Johnsons haridsome s scarlet runner of a Knpx touring car is one of the smart ma chines of Washington Mrs Johnson displays real Kentucky hospitality m the frequency with which she shares its delights with her friends J t t SOUND ADVICE i Mr Watte son in an editorial in the CourierJournal gives the following sound advice to Democrats If there be any Democrats in Ken tucky other than those who wnt some thing for themselves who are in it for what they expect to get out of Itand we cannot doubt not that there ebutthat they constItute a great ofIstill sound andcleanthey had better pet busy because there are forces burrowing beneath the surfac which have np other aim than the sacrifice of the vote ot Kentucky in thecoming Presi dential election to their own wholly selfish and purely local ends They are not very deep They maybe readily identified Their trademark is printed 011a cardboard and tied to their ear It reads simply Down with the CourierJournaL If the CourierJournal has not been always a deterrent to evil counsellors who are sometimes both deat and blind and bent upon selfslaughterit has on occasion restrained evil counsels whilst there was yet time to save the party from destruction ltlS trying to do thisnow Upon its success will depend the future of Democracy in Kentucky its usefulness as an enlightened and conservative power an the Government of tne Commonwealth its vitality as militant and triumphant legion in the work of rescuing greatmaterial inter ests from threatened ruin and of bringing order and law from a state of chaos brought about 3y political chil dren playing with fire It would be truly pitiful and altogether characteristic gnobleIspirit of faction if we should lose the coming Presidential election in the loss I ot Kentuckys Electoral Vote surrendered in advance to ambition and greed and hate generated by lust for power and revenge Yet that is the banquet which the implacable enemies of Democracy are eagerly looking to see spread at the coming Lexington Convention If any one asks Who are they we have only to answer Read the newspa pers If any one asks usuHow do they propose to wreck us we answer By the introduction of extraneous matters appertaining to old quarrels and local conditions throwing reason out ot the window to exploit feudism arid friction and folly upon the floor And if still further we be asked What shall we do to stop it we answer Go tQ the Primaries next Saturday and send nobody to Lexington who will not get there having but one thought before him the unification of the party in the State the nomination of Mr Bryan at Denyer and the elec tion of the Presidential Ticket led by MrBryan in November That is all that needs to be done at Lexington He who goes there with knife whetted to wreak revenge is at le sta fooJ if ota traitor he who goes carrying a cleaver to slaughter the PresidentiCampaign in the sham bles of selfinterest seeking reprisal is all a traitor and partly a fool and he who goes to interpolate State issues of any sort is an impracticable vho should be gently led to the door and told to wait OutsiGe until the Nation is served the Courier Journal is not remo ely in issue It will be represented at Lex ington solely by its Correspondents and Reporters Upon every public ques ion of the time its attitude has been ex plicitly set forth and is known Q all r men It seeks nothing but common ground broad enough for eyery Democrat in the State to stand upon It has freely yielded its objections to MrrBryan for the sake of this common ground It has no secrets and no reserves slt has al ready poured a flood of sunshine into the Democratic heart throughout the Union It is in perfect sympathy and accord with the party leaders every whre1Mr Bryan at their head It looks to do great effectiye work in the campaign before us It proposes to throw the flashlights of publicity into the dark places of the enemy in our front and it has the right to ask that whilst it is doing this there shall be no dark places organized in the interest of factionism dset up in its rear no comrades in name seeking personal and ulterior ends no yokemate who will not work to harness and no jacko lantern side issues appealing to ignorance and passion got up at the behest of a clique that graft and thrift may follow doubledealing and chicane Apart from the elimination of these sinister agencies the Courier wants nothing That elimination it feels it has reason to claim and expect from the mass and body of the party whose wisdom and sense of fair play should need no urging at ai moment so critical involving a contingency so obvious Reflecting Democrats have only to cast about them to read the papers and note what is going on marking the connections and recalling the ante cedentsto see clearly the way ahead Shall it lead mtoa garden of roses gladdened by songs of love and peace and fellowship or into a briar patch infested by yellowjackets maddened by the voice of zealots and the hiss of serpents That will depend upon the good sense and good feeling which still abide in Democracy And this is why we say that the rank and file had bet ter get a move on them next Saturday the 6thof June preparatory to the JuneIthe Bluegrass Country may be decided for years

Crop Conditions Hardin Elizabethtown News It is little more than two weeks now to wheat harvest and there never was in Hardin county such a prospect for ai record breaking crop It has headed out yell

Conn Becomes Raving Maniac Before Death Relieves Him Louisville Times From the a rtt1esp ke bite Charles Con4twen- tyseyen years of age a traveling salesman for the American Law Book Company and prominent Mason of Lexington Ky died a raving maniac this morning at 4 oclock at the Deaconess Hospital Conn was bitten last night by a huge rattler on exhibition in the Mary Anderson Theater cigarstore and all efforts to save his life were in vain As he lay writhing in agony on the floor Conn begged the bystanders to Amputate his arm exclaiming Boys it is all up with me dont be afraid I wont mind the pain Thehorrified spectators stood as if paralyzed and finally in his delirIum the man took out his pocket knife nd b gan to cut away the flesh from th4tmy wounds but the knife soon fell fr9m his helpless hand Witnessed scores of persons on Fourth avenue who peered through the glass show base the weird and terrible struggle between Conn and the deadly reptile took place Bitten three times by the monster Conn still struggled on holding the reptile by the threat until the panicstricken people in the store made their escape in terror According to the story of witnesses Charles Conn accompanied by a friend Eugene Osier a drummer for a New York firm with whom he roomed at Rufers Hotel entered tile cigar store Shortly after 9 oclock and after pur chasing cigars ewed the snake which was on exhibition in a small wooden box near the cigar case Edward Hies a clerk at the store who owned the snake warned Conn to be careful of the reptile Conn who was a former civil engi neer and who had lived in Arizona only laughed at the warning saying that he was a snake charmer and that no rat tIer could best him With these words he withdrew the reptile from its cage and holding it by the throat exhibited it length to those present The snake struggled in his clutches and the whirr of Its seven rattlers frightened the au dience Conn then replaced the snake in the box and a few persons gathered and talked of the incident Before any one had recovered from the first exhibition by the amateur snake charmer he again drew the reptile from its cage and allowed it to coil about his right arm Hardly noticing it he began to chat with the men in the store of his experience in the West with rattlers when suddenly the writh ing object struggled from his grasp and plunged its fangs into h3 right hand With a cry of pain he twirled the snake through the air andthrew it far across the room where it alighted on the shoulders of a bystander who shrieked in terrpr Realizing what he had done Conn ran to the ajd of the terrorstricken man and then began the struggle between man and reptile After a few seconds which seemed hours to the terrified onlookers Conn released the man uninjured but was himself bitten twice in the arm by the infuriated rattler Throwing it to the floor he attempted to kill it but grow ing weaker he swooned and leaned against the cigar stand fat support The snake tor the time made its escape behind some boxes Conn was carried to the cafe in the basement of the building where nearly a pint of whisky was poured down his thrOat Dr John G Clenvwhose office is in the Atherton building was immediately summoned and arrived in three minutes but by this time the unfortunate man lay on a bench in a state of collapse The poison had already permeated his system and the awful agony was apparent tp everyone Weakly he raised his voice and begged the physi cian to do something to alleviate his pain Dr O Raymond Minor was called in to assist Dr Clem and an automobile was brought and the man taken to the Deaconess Hospital with breakneck speed At the hospital the physicians opened his veins and injected strong solutions pt permanganate of potassium in an effort to neutralize the poison Although Conn recovered complete consciousness he became a raving maniac and had to be strapped in bed where the com t t bined strength of nurses and physicians was barely sufficient to keep him The effects of the poison were awful to whold The eyes of the unfortunate than contracted until they looked like njere beads while his tongue was swollen to five times its normal size arid protruded from his mouth Gradually the struggles of the malt became weaker and weaker hid the physicians did all in their power to stimulate heart action but to no avail and Conn passed away this morning at 4 oclock BURLEY SOCIETY Disposes of 4000008 Pounds of Tobacco I Lexington Ky June LAs a result of a conference between F R Toe Water of this city manager of the Kentucky leaf department of the Amer Jean Tobacco Company R K Smith of New York managing director and a number of purchasing agents df the company the American Tobacco Corn I pany has concluded a deal with the sales committee of the Burley Tobacco Society by which they will purchase im mediately 4000000 pounds of pooled to bacco at the regular1 price fixed by the society This purchase embraces all of the pooled tobacco of the 1996 crop bV low the 14 grade The pooled crop of 1906 above this grade was not included in the purchase as the Burley Associa r tion desires to give independent m 1uj facturers another chance to make purr r chases for supplying their wants for the ensuing year The cheaper grades of tobacco which were sol i by day to the American T thoedealto have beep in great demand pendent manufacturerj1but a ntemberofof the ex e the asso ciation said today tHaC the indepen dents had been given aiair chance at these grades and the society could not afford to holdthem longer as the grow ers are becoming insistent for money Besides these grades can be supplied from the 1907 crop not a pound or which has yet been sold and none of which will be sold until the 1906 crop has been entirely disposed of It is rumored here today that the American Tobacco Company is now attempting toj arrange a deal by which it will chase the entire pooled crop of 1907 and that after the independents man fac turers have been given a fair opportun ity to buy the remainder of the 1906 iJ crop and to then supply their needs from the crop of 1907 the Burley Soy ciety will close out to the American To bacco Company the entire holdings of pooled tobacco jWant Corn J The Lexington Leader saysalthough much of this years corn is not yet allplanted owing to the lateness of the season speculators have

Famine in Blue Dishes tilt is hard for merchants and manufacturers to foresee the fancies of the public said the proprietor of a large Now York store Take the demand for blue fruit dishes for ex ample Ml ofa sudden abouf six months ago housekeepers all over town began to ask fox fruit dishes of glass or china in various shades of blue There were only a few such dishes on the market The supply tfas soon exhausted and before an other consignment could be secured our clerks were pestered to death by importunate women who wanted to know why on earth we didnt keep in stock plenty of those plue dishes Finally we investigated the source of this craze for blue dishes and found that it originated in the statement of French scientists that that color on account of certain action of the rays of light helps to keep fruit fresh Whether there is ally truth in the theory I cant pretend to say but the women evidently have faith in it and are backing up their belief in a most substantial mannerF-
