Gen'l. Hardin's speech Monday was
filled with eloquent passages. Said he,
"I visited Western Kentucky and saw

sentinels in the path of prosperity hut
there were no purchasers." I visited
Eastern Kentucky, whose sun-kissed
mountains are big with untold wealth of
ore, but the wolf of hunger haunts the
homes o! the people there." "I have
been in the Blue Grass, the fairest spot
neath heaven's dome, the asparagus bed
of tiie uuiveibe, but lav.lesues and

Married Under Difficulties.
At Panola, on R.N.I &B , there were
married at the residence of Eld. E. P.
Denton, on Thursday evening last, Wm.
Comely, of Girrard county, to Miss
Cnloe Henderson, of Red Lick, daughter
of the late Elder Anthenile Henderson
having obtained license of Clerk White,
at Richmond. Before leaving home
a question was sprung as to the legality
of marriage outside of the county issuing
license, and to remove all doubt a fifteen
mile journey over roads with mud sometimes
to the axle was made. Anthenile
Henderson, brother of the bride, and
Miss Annie Comely, sister of the groom,
accompanied them. They started on the
return trip with light hearts, and may
nothing ever cross their path to make
them heavy. On the same evening, at
the residence of .Mrs. Nancy ledford,
near Panola, her daughter, Miss Ella,
and David C. Baker, of Jackson county,
w ere married by the same official. And
again, may fortune smile on them. On
the same day Win. Gentry and Miss

For a Genuine Democratic Daily Paper.
General P Watt Hardin was invited to
addre&s the couit day crowd on Monday
and responded with an hour's 6peech
that was full of sense and replete with
eloquent flights that carried the audience
w ith him by storm.
Gen. Hardin stated that he was here
at the request of the Chairman of the
Democratic Committee, to present and
explain the plan adopted to secure a
Democratic organ to be published in
Louisville. It was the outgrowth of the
meetings of the Democratic tate Central
and State Executive Committees. He
said that he believed there never was
such a field for . newspaper; that the demand
(or it was nuniveisal. and that it
was a party necessity. Two hundred aud
twenty thousand Democrats in Kentucky
were without a column in the city press
to represent them, and to-day four Louisville
papers were sustained and supported
against the will and wisli of four-fifths
of the intelligent leading pub'.ic of
our State. If this be true, what could
one paper do that has the sympathy of
four out of five of the intelligent reading
public? But his appeal was not based
on the idea simply of an investment, but
to the party pride and patriotism of the
Democracy, for the public good and the
safety of the country.
Geueral Hardin then explained in detail
the plan of raising the stock by
counties and the pro rata according to
the Democratic vote and the manuer of
From this he branched off into a
of the money question, especially
dealing with the present times as the
logical result of our money system and
the ote of confidence given by the
American people to the continuance of a
system under which every money hoarder
and creditor knew his money would
continue to enhance in purchasing
power. They oted him confidence in a
rising market for money; and then seem
to expect him to part with money growing
dearer for property growing cheaper.
Oh. no! he is not that big a fool. You
Republicans expect protection from
supplies that drive the price of your
products down. You demand that the
government give you a monopoly on
what you hae to sell. Dou't you think
tne money power is as smart as you are?
They demanded and you have given
them a monopoly of the money market.
You have shut off their competition, you
have closed the mines and mints to silver,
one of the sources of money in all
the past. Why then do vou wonder
that they don't exchange their money for
property, when they know the ery protection
you have given them will continue
to make their moncv tiee iu value?
Continuing. Mr. Hardin discussed the
various aspects of the question &uddealt
telling blows at the sjstem that has
dragged us down from bad to worse,
until banks and corporations, large and
small, are breaking and lawlessness and
disorder run rampant in the land. It is
money we need, not confidence. We
haye plenty to sell, but no money, for it
is 'boarded ani the only way to prosperity
is through opening the mints to
the free andunlimiied coinage of silver,
when every dollar will be of the same
value, and there will be no danger of
cornering it, as they do at present.

Slate Lick As a Lovers' Paradise
The attention of the Climax was
lately called to the fact that tho classic
waters of Slate Lick are as conducive
to marriage as Spring time is
to thoughts of love. Lastyearand the
year before a score or more of young
people from Richmond under tho
chaperonago of Mr. and Mrs. W. L.
Crutcher and Mrs. C. T. Fox
' camped out" at this pleasant resort,
about three miles from Berca, where
the road winds around through the
woods and finally runs up a tree. A
census of the visitors was taken
lately and the swath that cupid has
cut in their serried ranks is appalling.
Tho first to be led to Hymen's
Altar was Miss Sallie Yates, who
