REV. WALKER GOES TO

Kentucky awl Whisky Men
llov. I). M. Walker leave Jicit
week for Washington, where ho will
attend the nationnl convention of
the Anti-Saloon League, having been
appointed one of the delegates
from Kentucky by Gov. McCrenry,
together with a number of other
prominent temperance workers over
the state. Rev. F. M. Tinder, of
Lancaster, was also mndo a dele
gat. A number of local tempciunce
workers rnnde up a pur for the
purpv? a of ,lfryitii Kv. Walker'.,

In coniipction with the appoint

to the Anti-Snloon Convention, the
Louisville Herald nv thnt such nn

When Gov. James H. McCrenry, n
few days ago, appointed delegates
lo rcprencnt the Stnto of Kentucky
nt n eonferenco of tlm Anti-Snloon

The chief cnuse for complaint
ncninst tho netion of Gov. McCrenry
according to the view taken bv tho
whisky men. is thnt the appointment
of the delegates by the Governor
gives nn imprcmioti thnt the State
of Kentucky lends approval of the
cnuno of the Anti-Snloon League.
The whisky men point out that
Gov. MeCrenrv went out of liiawnv
to name the delntos to the Wash
ington conference. Ho wan not re
quired under the law to designate
anyone lo nttend the meeting. Whili
he had the right a n private citizen
it is argued, still it showed bad
judgment on hi part not to sny iu
differencc to the interest of tho
people nt large to place tho entire
RJnte of Kentucky in n false atti
tude. - ,
It would hnve leen proper for
him, nrcording to tho complaints to
hnve followed tho enstom establish

aside any advancement from an or
gnniration thnt would tend to create
Apart from this, the liquor men
not only will fiend out their petition
t ecplain the true conditions in the
state, but thev will delegate certain
men to i to Washington when the
eonferenco is held and lnce the is
sue fnirly tnd squarely up to the
representatives in Congress from
the Stnte of Kentucky. In short
this menns they will work for the
defnt of the Kenyan bill, pending
before congress, which holds more
than ordinary interest for the Anti
Snloon Lcngue people by reason of
the fact thnt it is fnvornblo to their
' cause nnd therefore, detrimental to
he, interests of the liquor trade.

A GRAND OLD MAN
F. Camden, of Waynesburq,
Who has a Great Record
In the person of Mr. William F,

Christian virtue enn not bo excelled

ly 80 yeurs .old his last "'birthday.

It is doubtful if this or any other
community has a better or more con
sisteiit democrat. Ho cast bis first
vote in 185.'! for the lute James S,
C'hrisman, of Wayno county, for
Congress and binco that time has
uecr failed to support every man
whose name appears uuder tho dem
ocratic emblem. Not even a school
trustee receives his support unless
he is a disciple f Thomas Jefferson.
For 20 years Mr. Camdn has
been a deputy under County Court
Clerk Cooper aud his conduct of th
ul'fairs of that important office
have at all times been absolutely
correct, neat in every particular
and his records kept so clear that it
is no trouble whatsoever to trace
a record of deed or inortgan from
lioguitung to end. .
Many years ugo Mr. Camden unit

church and has for a lornr time act

tho bunday school and church. Wlmn

nil those years, though denied tho
happiness of offspring.
Though udvnnccd in age, Mr.

years his junior. He in a farmer
in a small wuy, and still looks nftcr
