Pj:ices of farm products continue
to go up, while the piic of silver
continues to fall. These facts destroy
the foundation upon which
half of the silver arguments of lat
fall wore based. Pantagraph.

voters in Ohio probably has goue up,
but if there has been one good sale in

"Bkyan ig the legitimate and logical
candidate of all the silver forces
for President in 11)00."
"This is the emphatic and unqualified
opinion of Senator Teller,
who has returned to
and was in his seat in the senate's
chamber for the first time in
several weeks. He looked benefitted
by his needed rest, and was given a
most cordial greeting by his colleagues,
who, without regard to
party, have for him the highest respect,
'As time rolls on,' continued
Mr. Teller, 'Bryan will be more and
more the legitimate and logical candidate.
I believe he will be the
nominee of the silver forces in the
next national campaign, and that
there will be no difficulty in combining
Judge Cantkill, of the Franklin
Circuit and State Fiscal Courts,
holds unconstitutional the act passed
by the late Legislature authorizing
the State to issue $500,000 worth of
bonds. This is the most important
act passed by that late unlamcnted
body, it being the only measure
which afforded immediate relief to
the bankrupt State Treasury. The
judgment was rendered by Judge
Cantrill in an agreed case testing
the validity of the act, having been
submitted to him by the .Eastern
Kentucky Lunatic Asylum and the
Carpets, Furniture, Wallpapers, Draperies.

In Great Variety.
At Lowest Prices.

Chamber Suits. Parlor Suits, Folding
Beds, Brass Beds, Iron Beds, Odd Dressers,
Wash Stands, Chiffoniers, Dressing
Tables, etc. Popular Finishes. Inspection
State Board . of Sinking Fund Commissioners.
Tne act in question was drawn by
the committees ou revenue and taxation
and if finally invalidated knocks
out the most important part of the
otherwise valueless legislation by
the Republican General Assembly.
Under another act passed the
warrants held by asylums and other
charitabte institutions, for whose
the Bond bill was passed, would
be given interest-bearing warrants
after July 1, and by this operation it
is estimated that the State would by
put to nn additional cost of from $10,
000 to S15.C00 interest if Judge Can-trill's
decision, Invalidating the bond
issue, hokls good.
KITS BUILDING 'ASSOCIATIONS HARD.
It is almost certain that the building
and loan companies operating in
Kentucky will be forced to cease operations
since the decision of the
Court of Appeals rendered Saturday.
For the past week every man in the
State of Kentucky interestedin any
way in these companies has been
watching with feverish interest for
news from Frankfort relative to the
suit, which meant everything to
many of them.
The adverso decision to the
companies came as a great shock, as
it was confidently believed that the
court would decide favorably to
them. The court holds that even the
dues are "interest." and that the
borrowers, who have been pay!ng
from 12 to 17 percent, in dues and interest,
are entitled to recover or be
credited by all in excess of a G per
cent- interest he lias paid.
A full copy of the opinion has not
been received in this city, but enough
is known to know that the law under
which they have been operating is
unconstitutional, and that the result
will be a big thing for the borrowers
with a small nuiriber of shares of
stock and a big loss to those who
have purchased the stock as a matter
The following is the ofllcial synopsis
of the decision:
First The urovision of the building
and loan statutes, to the extent
that it authorizes the exaction of
monthly or weekly premiums of G per
cent, per annum, in addition to G per
centum per annum legal interest, on
sums loaned members of the association,
is violative of the constitutional
provision inhibiting the legislature
from passing any special or lecil law
regulating the rate of into: est, as
well as contrary to the provision of
the bill of rights prohibiting the
grant of seperate or exclusive privileges
to any man or set of men.
Second The subscription for stock
in such associations and the advance
of money theron are nothing
more than a lending and borrowing
of money, and the premium is interest
exacted for the Use of the money
in addition to the legal rate of interest,
and such premum is usury.
That the friends of pilver are ready
for another fight with the advocates ot
the gold standard is evidenced by the
large attendance at the convention of the
Ohio Bimetallic League held at Cincinnati
last week, v lieu "Win. J. Bryan.
Col. Geo. Washington, Gen. E. B. Fin-ley,
ex Congressman Towne, Gen. A. J.
Warner and Editor Bartine, of Nevada,
addressed the assemblage of 500 delegates
from Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia
and Kentucky. Many grand old warriors
of both parties were there to seethe

so bravely and undauntedly withstood
overwhelming numbers, and while forced
to temporary retreat; are massing for
an onslaught that would be irresistible.

Gems from the Speech of Hon. H. F. Bar-tine,
The speech of lion. H. F. Bartine,
was replete with telling points in favor
of the remonetization of silver.
The following are gems from his address
"Did the adoption of gold by Portugal
lift that country into the position
of a first class power? Did the change
of Germany from silver and gold to
silver alone in 1857 degrade the German
character or check the progress
of that great people? Did the change
back from silver to gold in 1873 at
onc3 lift them mentally, morally, so
cially or industrially? Did the clos
ing of the East Indian mint to silver
in 181)3 improve the industrial condition
of that country? Has the establishment
of the gold standard by San
Domingo or Liberia had any percept
ible effect in elevating, dignifyingand
enriching those states? Has the de
monetization of silver made the Amer
ican Republic greater, richer aud
more pragressive than it would have

"Suppose there were only one per
son living on the surface of this globe
how much gold would ho be worth?
"England is the world's greatest
creditor; the United States is at once
tho greatest debtor and producer. It
is, as Mr. Gladstone says, to the interest
of England's creditor classes to
enhance the value of gold, because it
enables them to wring more and more
from the unfortunate debtor. But it
is to our interest to put down the value
of gold, because by doing so we
raise the value of everything wc have

"After silver had perfectly performed
the work of money for 4,000 years
wi h no complaint anywhere on the
score of inconvenience, they suddenly
bring to light tho alleged fact that
it is too heavy and bulky for money
use, and they indulge in no end of
sarcasm at tho expense of the 'cartwheel'
dollar. One would imagine
from their talk that silver had from
some inscrutable cause changed its

"Silver was all right when It had to
be carried fram country to country on
mules and camels, or in stage coaches,
or old fashioned sailing craft; but
in modern railroad train or ocean
steamer is not equal to its transportation
because of its bulk and weight.
"The fact that the silver from
and Mexico fair)- lifted Europe
from the misery and debasement of
the dark ages, is one fact they 'appear
ta have forgotten.
'Under bimetallism, gold and silver
would compete with each other
in supplying tho demand for money
just as effectually as spring wheat and
winter wheat compete with each other
in supplying the demand for bread.
"If the present gold standard gives
us an honest dollar, then international
bimetallism, by making it cheaper,
will make it a 'dishonest' dollar.
"The free coinage of silver will increase
the supply of money with
which to pay higher prices, while the
higher tariff will not add a dollar to the
world's stock of money.
"Mr. John Shorraan says that the
best dollar is the one that will buy the
most. If that be true we have a short
and easy way to prosperity. All we
have to do is to wipe out of existence
a large portion of the money wo now
have, make it exceedingly scarce (the
scarcer the better), greatly increase
its purchasing power and the thing is

HAXXA'S rxSELFIsI! PATRIOTIC!.
"A few like Mr. Ilnnna, of your
state, are chiefiy concerned about
their own election, and, of course,
want a law that will make their calling
sure. Don't misunderstand me.
1 am not accusing Mr. Hanna of selfishness.
On the contrary I know, as
all the rest of yau know, that iu desiring
a full term after the expiration
of Ins present one, he is actuated by
the loftiest patiiotibin, and the most
complete spirit of self sacrifice. He
has promised the people prosperity.
lie knows that it will take him at
least six years to make delivery; but
he is determined that the people
have prosperity, no matter how long
it takes, what hardships he may have
to undergo, or what personal sacrifice
he may be compelled toinnkeln order
to give it to them. He is even anxious
to take upon himself all the arduous
duties of a United States
Senator, not for his own sake perish
the thought but simply and solely
that prosierity, like h white-winged
dove, may settle upon tho humble cot
of eyery honest toiler in the land,
yf 'But you all know as much about
Mark Hanna as I do, and I will not
squander time in expatiating upon
his virtues. It ij well, though for
you not to lose sight of the fact that
he is only human, and that omniscience
is not a human attribute. He
promised prosperity immediately upon
the election of McKinley. Seven
rnd a half months have rolled away,
and up to date we have not even
heard a rustle of the bird's wing. A
man who can so easily be mistaken
seven and a half months, may possibly
be mistaken seven and a half
'My friends, prosperity cannot be
restored this country by higher taxes
by taking more away from those
who are already the poorest and giv.
ing it to those who are already the
richest. Neither can it be done by
taking money out of the arteries of
trade and piling it up in the Treasury
of the United States.
'Why, my friends ; there has never
been a minute during the last five
years when tho government could
not meet every obligation. In that
sense there has never been a deficiency,
and if there had been there was
plenty of silver lying in the treasury,
an idle and useless mass, weich could
have been coined to meet it; and it
would have been within both the spirit
and the letter of the law' to have
used it for that purpose.
"I have not the slightest faith that
we shall ever get an international
agreement, unless "wo force one by
taking the first step. Our commissioners
abroad are of course havings
good time. They are being courteously
received and well entertained,
as everybody knew they would be.
At the banquet board, where they are
the guests of enthusiastic European
bimetallists, the situation is painted
in rainlow colors, but I seojiothing
to indicate that we are any nearer to
an international agreement than wa
were in 1S78.
"The creditor classes of Europe absolutely
control tho financial policy
o7 their respective governments, and
they will never voluntarily surrender
the advantage which tho gold
standard gives them. If wo want
silver restored we must do it ourselves.

"The star of Win. J. Bryan has risen
iu the "West. Let tho true Democrats
of the country take that star as
their guide, let them follow the road
lighted by its rays, let there be no
wavering or faltering or temporizing
with the uncertain element!, and I
believe the silver Republicans will go
with them to tho end. We can accept
the Democracy of Bryan, but wo will
not accept anything that is even tinctured

Deputy Sherift Dudley's Fishing Party.
On Saturday last a number of young
folks gathered on Silver Creek near
Bogie's Mill, where fishing was the
feature of the day, though the writer
failed to see one sign of a pole or reel.
Nevertheless, there was enough fish
on the ground to have fed all the people
in that end of the country. The
occasion proved a gala day for all
present, there being about 40 of both
young and old folks present. All expressed
their thanks to Mr. Dudley,
incidental in the pleasant event, and
are now looking forward when another
such day may be had. The party
extend their kindest thanks to Mrs.
Irvine Roberts, who so kindly assisted
in the preparation of the excellent
dinner. When will the Deputy kill

The desk occupied by Hon. W. T.
Tevis in the Revenue office, is abolished
after this date, by order of the
Commissioner of Internal Revenue,
and the work distributed among the
other clerks. This is done ostensibly
to reduce expenses', but the axe these
days generally falls upon Democrats
who could not bo bluffed into supporting
the McKinley administration
or a side-track ticket. This Is only
an inference, but office secrets com
pel outsiders to conjecture what they
please. There is one thing certain,
the guillotine cut off tho head of one
of the most competent and eflicieiit
members of tho revenue force not to
mention one whose long and honorable
service in the cause of Democracy,
rendered him a conspicuous figure in
the councils of the party.

Probably the largest snake that has
been seen in this freetion since the days
nt Daniel Boone, was discovered b two
FarriMown negroes while cradling vheat
on the farm of Mr. II. J. Twiyg on.jday
labt week. The big reptile first made its
appearance by raising a battle wit'i the
cradle as it made a sweep over liei neet
of 19 little ones which she started nut in
a business way to defend. The sight of
the snake of course excited the negro
much, aud he turned the cradle loose,
stepping off a few yards until the Miake
could swallow her little ones (winch is
natural with them when they prepare for
battle) and get out of her wav that she
might proceed with her work. "Well,
she didn't go worlii a durn.'' sai the
negro; but liegan to make a despprate
fight with the cradle. It was a black
snake and anyone familiar witli these
reptiles know that their natii re fosqueeze
is like a boy with his sweetheart never
know when to quit. She wound and
twisted aud doubled herself around that
cradle until she had broken ont two fingers,
bent the blade and cut herself in a
dozen pirces over iu which ended the
battle rather in victory for the cradle.
The negro gathered up the pieces the
snakt lo get a definite idea as to her
length and after putting all of them together
she measured eiulit feet.
