Hon. V. J. Bryan is expected to attend
the Democratic rally at
Ohio. The occasion is to be
made one memorable In the history
of the State, and many distinguished
Bjwakers will be present- The pro-pram
is to have it begin on the 15th
of September and continue until the
Chaunov Depew thinks that $100-000,000
gold a year will come in from
Alaska. We will then repudiate our
obligations says the Stanford Journal,
by paying them ofl in cheap gold.

TiiEttK was a tiino whon Honrv
vigorously opposed the
gold standard, and the following
was then his advice in the Courier-Journal
to the newspapers of the
country: All newspapers in the land
not owned body and breeches by tho
money kings or tho gold conspiracy
ouht to call public attention day after
day to the lamentable conditions
produced by the anti-silver legislation.
As Henry has ceased to talk
about the hard conditions resulting
from anti-silver legislation tho presumption
is logical that the erstwhile
Prince Rupert among silver
leaders is now owned "body and
breeches by tho money king or the
gold conspiracy." Jackson Sun.

TnKBE was an alleged interview
with MfTEmuiett Dickson, of Paris,
published in tho Cincinnati Enquirer
some days ago, in which It was said
that Mr. Dickson told tho reporter
that tho National Democratic party
in Kentucky was made up of "old-time
Whigs, home-guards during the
war and Shylocks." Wo do not believe
that Mr. Dickson ever mado that
statement withholding comment until
Mj Dickson has an opportunity to
confirm or deny the accuracy of tho
report, says the Loxington Herald.
"Why a newspaper could nover

A paper never could live in Lincoln

Craddock in tho Paris Kentuckian
Ten years ago it was not considered
respectable to be a Republican iti

to be a Republican of tho kind
that is running party affairs hero and

tho "nigger party," now the negroes
are about tho only decent ones loft

by Hunter, Deboo, Todd, Taylor,

by tho association. Frankfort
Ik tho "National" Democrats expect
to elect Hindman clerk of tho
Court of Appoals, as Wattorson vainly
predicts, it is more than tho candidate
himself believes or anyboby else for
or against him. The Lvbanqn Falcon
"Hindman, tho yellow jacket candidate
for clerk of the Court of
was in Lebanon Saturday nnd
frankly confessed that ho had not
tho slightest hopes of being elcctei'.
Just sol Brother Hindman 's sole
mission Is to try and seduce enough
Democrats from their party allegiance
to enablo the Republicans to win, but
his efforts will prove a dismal failure."
The Louisville Post, one of the
phining lights of the so-called Nat
tonal Democratic party, concedes the
election of S. J. Shackclford,tho Democratic
nominee for the Clerk of the
Court of Appeals, by a plurality of
25,00, and all unbiased people who
make any claim to a knowledge of
the situation agree with it. In a
interview Hon. Z. F. Smith,
of Public Instruction
I have recently boon through tne
western part of the state, and I believe
Shackelford, the Democratic
nominee for Clerk of tho Court of Appeals,
is safe for a majority of nut
loss than 0,000 or 30,000. The Republicans
will not make anything
like the effort to carry the state that
they did last year. They are disheartened,
disappointed and divided.
Tho action of the Gold Democrats
will help tho regular ticket. If the
Populist candidate for Clerk of tho
Court of Appeals persists in running
ho may possibly draw off 8.000 or 10,-000
votes not more, but even then
Shackelford will get fully 20,000 majority.

The tariff law already in effect
has been heralded as having been
mado in opposition to the sugar trust.
The lie is given to this claim by tho
rapid and enormous rise in sugar
trust certificates as soon as the conference
report is presented to tho
house. The increased value of these
certificates could have had no other
cause than the contemplated tariff
law Tho pretense that the law was
formed against the wishes and desires
of the sugar trust Is shown to be
The absurdity of tho claim that republican
victory would bring prosperity
is shown by the condition of
the country. Times are bettor to-day
than a year ago for nobody except
the tariff monopolists. Yet tho
administration has been in
power over five months and the election
was nine months no.
Tho Republican party is now on
trial. It will bo convicted of obtaining
power under false pretenses and
bo sentenced to letirc from oiQco at
the first election.
THE CONSUMER PAYS IT.
The Dispatch still thinks that the
consumers pay the protective tariff.
We invite tho Dispatch to specify
some article, tho product of an established
American industry, which
does not sell for less now than, when
the protective tariff was imposed upon
it. Louisville Commercial.
This is easy to answer. Before the
Dlnpley bill was passed the merchants
of Louisville wero selling 20
pounds of sugar to tho dollar. They
are now soiling sixteen to seventeen
pounds of sugar to tho dollar. Sugar
has advanced about one cent per
pound on account of the protective
tariff imposed on refined sugar. Will
the Commercial please tell the people
who consume sugar what foreigner
pays that extra cent per pound for
them ? Louisville Dispatch.

going down a rough road two miles

shingles. He dangled holplossly and
tho wheel ran upon his leg above the
knee, and with his limb under the
wheel tho team dragged him twenty
yards, his leg serving as a "chock" to
the wheel. The team left the wheel
upon Kimbrell's leg, despite which
he was able to tell a little boy accompanying
him to run to town for a
doctor. Some time after two negro
men came along and pulled the
wagon off the man, and he was laid
in the shade to await the arrival of
Dr. Gibson. The latter found the
poor man's leg mashed to a pulp, and

Dispatch, enroute to Kostem
Kentucky, paid a visit to Richmond
last Friday and stopped with Hon. J.
B. McCreary, who served in Congress
with Mr. Enloe when tho latter represented
a Tennessee district. Gov. Mc-Creary's
office was thronged with callers
who came to meet the distinguished
visitor, and in the
Enloe took ten. at Gov. Mc-Creary's
home, when n number of
gentlemen called. Col. Enloe Is a tall,
handsome man, in the prime of life,
and is as agreeable in conversation,
as he is entertaining and instructive
in the columns of the Dispatch. He
made a fine impression upon all who
mot him and impressed them as one
eminently fitted to mould public
opinion upon all the vital questions
of the day. Ho, like Watterson, Is a
native of Tennessee, and like hLm has
served with distinction in the Congress
of the United Stites. and daily
combats and confutes the arguments
of the "Star Eyed Goddess" either by
superior .reasoning, patriotism, and
fldolity to Democracy, or by reprinting
Watterson's utterances and writing
of Id-'W showing i.Iie glaring inconsistency
of his position to-day
upon the subject of finance. Thus
out of ids own month is the Dispatch
convicting the distinguished renegate.
Col. Enloo was much pleased with
Richmond and with the support accorded
the new prop9r by Madison
county. He already has a larger number
of readers than the Courier Journal
and only asks that the
Democrats of Kentucky give their
paper proper encouncment to insure
it) permanent success.
