Speaks To A Large Audience.
Hon. H. V. McChesney spoke at the
court house Saturday afternoon to a
large and appreciative audience com
posed of some of the best people of the
city and county. He was also compli
mented by a good attendance of leading
church women. He was introduced to
the people by Rev. E. B Barnes, pastor
of the First Christian Church of this
city, in a short but well pointed speech.
In the course of his speech he address
ed himself to the issues of the day in a
very brief way and then launched into
his main theme, that of submitting to a
vote of -the people the question of an
amendment to the Constitution, per
mitting the people to vote on the ques
tion of slate-wide prohibition. He gave
facts and figures to show that there
"would be no economic loss to the lax-
payers of the state to have state-wide
prohibition instead of the license system
which now prevails.
In his speech, he referred to Mr. Stan
ley as a "wet democrat who has
.lots 3d the cause of the liquor interests
throughout his career. He said that he
was present at the convention in Louis
ville and that Mr. Stanley voted the
county delegation of Henderson, bis
home county, wet. He said Mr. Stanley
did net vote aye or nay on the question
before the house but that he emphasized
the word "wet" and stated that he voted
Henderson county "WET." He also
stated that Mr. Stanley bad declared that
he would carry out the county univ law j
but that probably he meant by that,
that he would carry it out on a stretcher.
The speech was a clear cut and force
ful presentation of the dry side of the
At the conclusion of the speech, Mr.
McChesney was surrounded by the peo
ple who shook hands with him and
promised him their support.
Mrs. McChesney was in the audience
and she received much attention from
the people who wauled to shake hands
with her "the brave little woman who
was so valiantly supporting her husband
iu the fight for the best interest of the
state and of humanity."
Unquestionably, the speech did much
good for Mr. McChesney and he will
have a strong following in this county
which will grow stronger each day.

"Twenty nine years ago I began my
career. I had an old team and $50. Our
furniture was mostly home-made

habits, I got all needed machinery and
groceries of our home merchants on

first year was a wet season and I did not
make enough to pay creditors. I went
to each on dale of promise and explain
ed conditions, paying as much as pos
sible, and they all carried the balance
over another year. They continued to
accomodate me until I was able to buy
a forty-acre piece of my own. '

The Methodist parsonage at Chaplin,
Ky., was the scene on Tuesday evening,
the 15th, of a happy gathering of friends
from all churches and walks in life,
friends who had come to offer hearty
and sincere congratulations to Rev. and
Mrs. P. F. Adams, on the fifteenth anni

cloth bearing the bride's monogram.
The bride of fifteen years ago looked as
young and fresh as she did on her first
wedding day when she plighted her

was gowned in an exquisite dress of soft
white batiste elaborately embroidered
and trimmed in laca. ' In line to receive
the guests were Rev. and Mrs'. Adams

some manly son of thirteen, and Marie
Etta, the little daughter of seven. Dur
ing the evening about one hundred and
fifty guests called and in the presence of
this large gathering, the most beautiful
prayer ever uttered, was offered by Miss
Houston. It was a prayer from the
heart of a loyal friend and was a beauti
ful mingling of thanksgiving and ea
treaty, thanks for the unicn of two lives
blinded into one, a union that has be
come more perfect as the years have
passed a prayer of entreaty that so use
ful a couple be spared for a long life in

The Sixth Mile Stone
Rev. E. B. Barnes, pastor of the Fir st
Christian church of this city, has
reached the sixth mile stone in his min
istry in this city. Ue wm received
most cordially by his congregation on
his appearance here six years ago and
he has found much in his minilsry to
give him encouragment. No man has
stood higher in church circles than he.
He is liberal and broad in his views,
strong in his opinions which he always
supports and maintains with facts, con
scientious and painstaking in his work
and is a leader among men. " Affable, of
a social disposition he has won the af
fections of his congregation and the peo
ple by whom he is known. He is not
hide bound nor a strict doctrinaire, but
preaches, teaches and practices church
unity along all the activities of the
church both social and otherwise.
Among some of his achievements here
may be mentioned the erection of a new
church at a cost of $10,000 on which re
mains an indebtedness of only 84,000
which can be raised at any lime. The
fine spirit cf harmony which prevailed
throughout the days of building and
which prevails to this hour. The evan
gelistic services conducted by Dr. Yeuell
which stirred the entire community an.l
added eighty-five members to ihe con
gregation. The growth of the Sunday
School from 150 to an average attendance
of 400, and the largest weekly offerings
in the State. The Sunday School sup
ports an orphan in Louisville at 3100 00
a year; gave this year $220.00 for Foreign
Missions, and Las a part in the benevo
lent work oi our city and the church or
ganizations throughout the year. The
largest prayer meetings in the history of
the church were held during the fall and
winter months. The uniformly large
congregations at preaching services, and
particularly the added interest in the
evening services by the attendance of
Mr. Turley's men during the winter
months. The support of two mission
aries by the congregation and the Chris
tian Women's Board of Missions and Cir
cle the offering from both these organi
zations are $1,200 a year.
During the year he has preached a
series on the Old Testament characters
which were received with enthusiasm.
This fall and winter he will have a ser
ies on "The Modern Messages of the
Anoient Prophets." A special effort
will be made to reach the non-going
church element this coming season Dr.
Barnes believes that religion and life
are inseparable, that the church is here
to help humanity in its many efforts to
do good, either through the church or ia
any benevolent way, that the church is
never to be a thing of life on Sunday,
and a graveyard through the week; that
whatever ministers to the welfare of
the community should have the co-oper
ation and sanction of the church.
As an evidence of the high esteem in
which he is held by his church, that
church has just voted unanimously to
send him to a meeting of the church to
be held in Los Angeles, California and
the church will pay all his expenses
carte blanche. Dr. Barnes has signified
his intentions to go and is making his
preparations for the trip.
No finer delegate could be sent from
any church. There is nothing small
about him and on the questions -.hat
may come before that body for solution,
the church has the satisfaction of know
ing that its delegate will have an opin
ion worth expressing and that be will ex
press it, too.
