Some astute calculator has dem
onstrated that the average person
gives utterance to about twelvo mil
lion words a year. And we're not
all pugilists, either
TnE difference between being
presented at court in this country
and in Europe cannot be easily
made into a pun, as they are generally
both matters of dollars and cents.
Some of the gold-bug newspapers
lay great stress on the report that
wages in some places have been
raised ten per cent, over panic rates,
but they mako no note of the fact
that there has been fifty per cent,
increase in the cost of living.
Those pereous who often become
exasperated and feel the need of some
emphatic word to express their feel
ings, but are averse to swearing, are
at last accommodated. The Hart
ford Republican has coined a new
word "hellry." So, if tome fellow
hasn't treated you right, and you
want to consign him (metaphorical
ly, of course) to that climate where
old man Dives went when he died,
you can just tell him to go to the in
ferno of Rogers Bros. It will be
more polite and uptodate. You
may know that it is a proper word,,
or the Superintendent ofourcoun
ty schools wouldn't use it.
Anything that prevents or de
bars competition in any line of business,
is a menace to the civil
of the people and a tax upon
their pocketbooks. Republican
high protective tariff shuts out com
petition of foreign firms with our
home institutions. Jfr McKiuley's
"open door" is like a rat-trap it
opens only one way. It lets our
trusts out to compete with European
firms, but permits no ingress for
foreign competition. Surrounded by
a 52 per cent, tariff wall, our trusts
are "protected" against any competition
that might cheapen their articles
of manufacture to our home con
Burners. They flourish and get fabulously
rich, buttho American working
man receives no benefit from
this state of affairs.
He who thinks tho money question
next year will not amount to
much as a political issue, is badly
deceived in his calculations. The
bill now beforo Congress, which is
likely to become a law, proposing to
fix the single standard upon this
country, will only augment the interest
in this most important question
which has lagged but little since the
last Presidential election. For once
and for the present, the Republican
party plants itself squarely upon the
gold plank. The Democrats are for
both gold and silver, upon the equitable
ratio which public demands
may necessitate, clearly set forth in
their platform. Thus you have the
matter plainly outlined, and the
financial question will continue to
present itself before the people in a
way as unmistakable as it is important.
Many of those people who are expressing
so much sympathy and consideration
for the Boers in their fight
with England, do not stop to think
that this matter like most all important
subjects has two sides to it.
We feel 'ourselves a partiality for
the struggling Dutch people, as we
do for every nation and people striv
ing lor treeuom. nut it appears
in the light of history that the Boers
themselves have been guilty of oppression
and monopoly in their dealings
with England's subjects, the
Uitianders and others who came
within the domain of their power.
Tho Boers were tho first to invite the
war which is now upon them, and
seemed anxious for the fray. They
are perhaps the least blamable and
most justified of the two nations at
war, but be who thinks that they
have been and are yet entirely in the
right and unworthy of any censure
for acts which precipitated tho present
conflict, is certainly mistaken.
Somebody asked The Herald
scribe what he got for a Christmas
gift. Well ahem we got up on
Christmas morning and found that
we were still in the land of the liv
ing and the possessor of a good

tnanktul. Alter scrapping around
and finding sufficient fuel to build a
fire in our shack, we discovered that
the pump in the rear had not been
frozen up. Again a grateful feeling
camo over us. With plenty of good
water and a hot fire to cook it on,
why should a fellow become
if visions of gray feathered
fowls flit through bis brain? After
coming down to our office we
saw a dark streak that looked like
a rabbit pass our office window,
followed by boys and dogs, but it waB
going most too fast to eat. Later a

With the present Tub Herald
closes another volume of its existence
and the naner is now

of tho New year TlB Heuald will

The two men who now direct its des

others, for more than half of this
long time, and it U with an humble
sense of pride tint we review the
work of the years gone by. Wo

public a goo.l, clean, readable newspaper,

and our crowded columns are
evidence in themselves of the worth
which advertisers find in the printer's
ink which we use in our shop.
We are not unmindful of tho mistakes
wo may have made, or the im
perfections The Herald has often
contained for perfect newspapers
are almost as rare as perfect individuals
and wo feel that our intentions
have often over-reached our
accomplishments. But we think
the public will agree that TnE Her-
rALD is as good as the average news"
paper, and hope they will not think
we are saying these things in a spirit
The Herald has never assumed
to 1)e anything but a plain, matter-of-fact
newspaper, with bumble but
decided opinions, has always endeavored
to deal with the public as
one honest man should deal with another,
and the edification of the people
has been its sole aim..
Within a few weeks TnE Herald
will put' on a brand new dress of
reading type,direct from tbe foundry.
Messrs. Barnhart Bros. & Spindler,
the Chicago type men, are now
filling our order for eeveral hundred
pounds of new type. The typo is of
the moat modern and readable cast,
a size easy to read but not too small,
and TnE Herald will be better prepared
than ever to servo the reading
It is, then, with confidence born
of experience and with bright hopes
for the future that The Herald
rounds out its first quarter of a
CONTESTS AND CONTESTS.
Republican newspapers (especially
the Fox alley sheet) are eternally
prating about Democrats contesting
the election of their opponents, and
the contests to come before the
State Board and the Kentucky
Legislature are receiving the severest
condemnation at their hands. But
it is a fact that the most notorious
contests of past years have been by
Republicans. Even now, Mr. Evans
(Rep.) is contesting Mr. Turner,
(Dem.) from the Fifth district, and
Mr. Davidson (Rep.) is contesting
Mr. Qilbert,(Dem.) from the Eighth
district. Both of these Kentucky
caees will coc up before the House
of Representatives at Washington.
Mr. Evans,like his party colleague
Mr. Davidson, has scarcely any
grounds whatever upon which to
wage a contest, and if he wins, it
will be by virtue of Republican majority
in the House. The most
outrageous instances of usurpation
of office have been in the Houses
of Congress, when Democrats were
thrown out and Republicans installed
in seats to which they had no right
Theso contest cases are of course
never mentioned by Rjppjiblicau

doctrine) is a good thing for our
country, provided other nations will
adopt the samo policy. No well informed
Republican will contend that

THE NEW MONEY TRUST.
There is a financial bill now be
foro the Concress of tho United
States which is more far-reaching'
and important in the evil of its pro-
visions than most persons are aware.
Itis a Republican measure of the
most pronounced type, and Mr. Mc
Kinley, perhaps more than uuy ono
man, is responsible for its existence
It has been passed by tbe Republican
House by a good majority, but
has yet to run the gauntlet of the
Senate. That it will pass tho latter
body, and in slightly amended
form, is not certain, but probable.
In the main, this hill is a measure
which places the finances of our
country upon a strictly gold basis,
without pretext or equivocation.
Heretofore tho Republican leaders
have dallied with tho financial question
in a very cowardly and ginger
ly manner, and their utterances
along this line have been ambiguous
and meaningless. The present measure,
however, admits of no doubt as
to its real meaning. It has a distinctive
yellow tinge all the way through,
and contains, in boldest form, those
provisions which so plainly identify
the Republican party with tbe trusts
and money kings of the country.
In fact, it is a trust bill, pure and
simple a money-trust measure. It
takes our finances out from the control
of the Government and places
them in the hands of the banks and
money-trust managers. It is full of
evil and misfortune for the plain
people of the country and for all
those who are not bond-holders, bond-purchasers
or money speculators.
Besides doubly enriching those who
speculate in gold, this bill places
with the national banks and bond
holders the power to fix the price of
every product and commodity offered
upon the market, inasmuch as it
so vitally affects the currency in circulation,
upon which reals the welfare
of every known product or value.
The bill possesses within itself the
power to expand or contract the cir
culating medium of the country at
the will of those whoso interests it
most favors, and tbe welfare of the
people is not considered in its pro
Congressman Kieberg, of Texas,in
his speech in opposition to this measure,
If I were aked to define the scope
and effect ol this bill, houI4 It
into law, I would aay that it a to
contract the volume of our primary
money, to perpetuate Industrial combine,
lions and monopoly, build up and maintain
plutocracy, firmly establish I rape
upon the nation, and place the
masses at the mercy of the clauses. That
such Is the Intention of all the advocates
I cannot belleve.yet that such is Its effect,
I cannot doubt.
Congressman Brundidge of Arkansas,
in opposing the bill said:
Some Idea of thesreat advantages that
will accrue to the bondholder can be gain
ed by siring attention to the sale made
by Mr. Cleveland In 1895 of f6 3.000,000 of
bonds. The purchasers of those bonds
offered to give a bonus of 116,000,000 to
have them made payable In gold In
stead of coin, If at that time they could
afford to pay $16,000,000 to have the word
'gold" written In $63,000,000 of bonds,
then you are, by passing this bill, making
them an absolute gift of more than
$250,000,000 when you raak the whole
governmentt! ueo'i payable iugold.which
now amounts to more than a billion dollars,
as I have stated.
There was no demand for this financial
measure and the bill finds
its existence only at the behest of
the plutocrats and money kings of
tbe country, whose appetites for
wealth seem insatiable and who care
little for the interests of tbe people
so long as their own purses are fattened.
It is the most infamous
measure that has lately come up for
legislation and deserves the condemnation
and defeat which the
people of the country, if they had
voico in tbe matter, would surely
assign it. , .....- ------
