future shall remain only as a useful
Hon. W. 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
speakers will be present- The pro-pram
is to have it begin on the 15th
of September and continue until the
Uhaunoy DKi'EW 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 of! in cheap gold.
Silver nill shoot up to the moon In
price. Rothschild will become a (diver
bug and the gold bugs will chango
to silver bugs. The inonoy devil
will lHciimoau angel of mercy, and
bell will bo a summer rcesort.
TiiEiiB was a time when Honry
Wswterson vigorously opposed the
gold standard, and tho following
was thou bis advice in the Courier-Journal
to the newspapers of tho
country: All newspapers in tho land
not owned body and breeches by tho
money kings or tho gold conspiracy
ought to call public attention day after
d.iy 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 the presumption
is- logical that the erstwhile
Prince Rupert among silver
leaders is now owned "body and
breeches by the money king or tho
gold conspiracy." Jackson Sun.

"Why a newspaper could never
live in Lewis county," Ib the heading
of a long article in the Vanceburg
Sun, the point being that tho county
officers don't comply with law in advertising.
A suggestion though is to
go ahead and make tho Sun sbino
brightly as it is now doing, and all
will naturally be drawn to the sun.
A paper never could live in Uncoln
county until Walton -made such
growl that all helped him, says Col.
Craddock in the Paris Kentuckian
Ten years ago it was not considered
respectable to be a Republican in
Kentucky. Now it isn't really respectable
to be a Republican of the kind
that Is running party affairs hero and
at Washington. They used to call It
tho "nigger party," now the negroes
are about tho only decent ones loft
who affiliate with tho gang headed
by Huntor, Deboo, Todd, Taylor,
Franks, Sapp, Erdman and their
trlbo. And tho nogro suffers in reputation
by tho association. Frankfort
If tho "National" Democrats expect
to elect Hindman clork of tho
Court of Appoals, as Watterson vainly
predicts, it is more than tho candidate
himself believes or nnyboby else for
or against hjm. The Lubanqn Falcon
"Hindman, the yellow candidate
for clerk of the Court of Appeals
was in Lebanon Saturday and
frankly confessed that ho had not
tho slightest hopes of being elected.
Just sol Brother HIndmnn's solo
mission is to try and seduce enough
Democrats from their party allegiance
to cnablo the Republicans to win, but
his efforts will prove a dismal failure."
The Louisville Post, one of the
chining lights of the so-called Nat
ionnl Democratic party, concedes the
election of S. J. Shackelford, 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 recent
interview Hon. Z. F. Smith,
of Public Instruction
I have recently been through ttte
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 not
loss than 20,000 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 the regular ticket. If the
Populist candidate for Clerk of tho
Court of Appeals persists in running
he may possibly draw off 8 000 or 10,-000
votes not moro, but even then
Shackelford will get fully 20,000 majority.
Givex power under a pledge to reform
the currency In tho Interests of
the people tho Republican party has
reformed the tariff in tho interests of
The tariff law already in effect
has been heralded as having been
made in opposition to the sugar trust.
The Ho 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 tho contemplated tariff
law Tho pretense that the law was
formed against the wishes and desires
of the sugar trust is shown to be
Tho absurdity of the claim that republican
victory would bring prosperity
is shown by thb condition of
the country. Times are bettor to-day
than a year ago for nobody except
the tariff monopolists. Yet tho
administration has beon In
power over five months and the election
was nino months ago.
The Republican party is now on
trial. It will bo convicted of obtaining
powor under false pretenses and
bo sentenced to letiro from oiOco 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, the product of an established
American Industry, which
does not sell for less now than when
the protective tariff was imposed upon
it. Loul8vlllo Commercial.
This is easy to answer. Before the
DIngley bill was passed the merchants
of Louisville were Belling 20
pounds of sugar to tho dollar. They
aro now soiling sixteen to seventeen
pounds of sugar to tho dollar. Sugar
has advanced about one cent per
pound on account t the protective
tariff imposed on refined sugar. Will

was enroute home with a

going down a rough road two miles

lines which were tied to n bunch of
shingles. Ho dauglod helplessly 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
tho wheel. Tho 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 oil 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
thinks its amputation will be necessary

Dispatch, enroute lo Eastern
Kentucky, paid a visit to Richmond
last Friday and stopped with Hon. J.
B. McCreary, who served in Congress
with Mr. Enloe when the latter represented
a Tennessee district. Gov.
office was thronged with callers
who came to meet the distinguished
visitor, and in the ovening
Mr. Enloe took tea at Gov. Mc-Creary's
home, when n number of
gentlemen called. Col. Enloo la 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
met him and impressed them as one
eminently fitted to mould public
opinion upon all the vital questions
of the day. He, like Watterson, Is a
native of Tennessee, aud like him has
served with distinction in the Congress
of the United States, and daily
combats and confutes the arguments
of the "Star Eyed Goddess" either by
superior .reasoning, patriotism, and
fidelity to Domocracy. or by reprinting
Wattepson's utterances and writing
of 79-'92 showing the glaring inconsistency
of his position to-day
upon tho subject of finance. Thus
out of iiis own mouth is tho Dispatch
convicting the distinguished renegate.
Col. Enloo was much pleased with
Richmond and with the support accorded
iho now proper by Madison
county. He already has a iarger

Hood's Sarsoparilla aud have never had
any carbuncles since. My little son bad

"The Great John Robinson and
Franklin Bros. Enormous Shovts combined"
are announced t appear nt Richmond
in all their vast entirety, 03
Friday, August 27, and for one day
only, giving two complete petforinantes,
afternoon and evening. All of our exchanges
speak in the highest terms of
this great amusement enterprise, and
the many tougii 'hangers-on" so
fuuud with latge shows, are
made conspicuous by their absence.
There is not a game of chance of any
kind permitted on or around the
grounds. All the attaches are gentlemen,
and there is not a loud or profaue
It is a wonderful sight to see the wonderful
"horeeless carriage" in trial tests
of speed at every performance and in
the gre.it double parade. The three
rings and elevated stages are all going at
ono time, with entirely different acts.
Performers nicked from the best the
world affords, and there is more than
four score of them, w hose combined salaries
would more than equal twice over
the entire expenses of the etery day
circus. The daily free street r amde is
one mass of glittering mngnillcenre,
"scenes from all nations," numerous
open dens of rare wild beast", twelve
kinds of niuwic. herds of elephants and
the finest imported horses ever sten
with a tented amusement enterprise.
The coming of this, the world's
amusement, is caiiFe for a "rejrd" holiday
in every city it visits, and it i
worth coming a day's travel to see.
