COLUMBIA, ADAJR COUNTY, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY OCT. 23, 1912
Expressions on Death' f Gov.
In the death of Governor Hindman
Kentucky loses a good citizen, a faith
ful officer and a fearless advocate of
honest public policies.
Governor Hindman was a Democrat
in the truest sense of the word, but
he did not believe Democracy depend-
ed solely upon party organization or
Machine activities. He believed in
the people and he believed that the
people should be supreme over party
organization and party orders.
In DOT Governor Hindman jielded
to the soliciation of the Palmer and
Buckner Democrats and consented to
make the race for Clerk of the Court
of Appeals, in order to keep together
the forces that had left the party in
1S96. A convention was held in Louis
ville, and earnest declaration of poli
cies and bold declaration of purposes
were made. Reluctantly Governor
Hindman agreed to be the leader in a
contest in which there was only in
volved one unimportant office, the
light for which was not to be backed
by a systematic organization through
out the State.
The movement was ill-advised, but
Governor Hindman had in him those
qualities that induce a man to lead
a forlorn hope. He entered the con
test and fought it out to the end,
knowing the end from the beginning.
One by one those who were most ear
nest in their demands upon him left
him, bub he carried the flag in honor,
through the campaign down to defeat.
The end has come to him suddenly,
but in a certain sense peacefully. He
carried through life a spirit of cheer
fulness and self-respect that made
him a force in public and private life.
He passes from the busy scenes of life
followed by the respect and the sor
row of his fellow citizens. Louisville

:Qhp Friday night, Octoler 25,1912,
Transylvania Presbytery, in connec
tion with the Presbyterian church U.
S. A., convened at the Presbyterian
church in this place, Friday evening
of last week, and closed its session
Monday morning at 11 o'clock.
Thi introductory sermon was
preached by the retiring Moderator,
Rev. Geo. S. Watkins, of Mt. Vernon,
Rev. EVC. Hamilton, of the Mar
rowbone church, was elected Moder
ator of the Presbytery, and occupied
the pulpit of the Presbyterian church,
Sunday morning. In addition to the
routine business, there were popular

pertaining to the work of the church.
On Friday evening was an address
by Rev. C. T. Michel, of Harlan, on
Evangelism in the Mountains of Ken
tucky, on Saturday Evening by Dr.
W. A Provine, of Nashville, Term,

lication work. Sunday evening was
devoted to the subject of Missions,
and addresses were made by Rev. C.
W. Byers, returned Missionary from
Japan, and Dr. Murdock, engaged in
the mountain work of Kentucky.
The sermons and addressess were
highly appreciated by our people, and
the presence of the representatives of
the church in our midse was in ev
ery way pleasant.
Such meetings are up-lifting social
ly and spiritually to the communities
in which they are held.
We trust that the brethren who
were our guests for a few days, enjoy
ed their stay with us, and that they
may" visit us again.

Dr. 11. A.-Jones, of Cincinnati, who
is a son of Dr. and Mrs. J. T. Jones,

week, in company with his mother,
with the view of buying a small tract
of land, near town, upon which to

S, Harris, lie paid $1,000 for the
tract, and will erect a handsome

be the home of his parents.
Attention is called to the pro
fessional card of Mr. W. T. Ottley in
this issue of the News. Mr. Ottley
lias been a qualified attorney for ten
years, having been admitted to the
bar immediately after graduating
from the law University of Virginia.
Coming to Kentucky he formed a

The Prnnnctri Ttirnnitfe.
Some inquiries are being made about
the proposed turnpike from James
town to Columbia, Yia Russell
Springs. In answer to these, it might
be well to state that the matter has
not been dropped. On the contrary, a
meeting of some of those interested
was held at Jamestown, Saturday,
October 12th, at which it was decided
that shortly after the election, the
taking of subscriptions to the capital
stock will be commenced. It was first
thought we should begin immediately,
but, owing to the business engage
ments of some of the persons most in
terested, it was found advisable to
postpone the matter for a short
The people at Jamestown want to
say to the people at Columbia and
those along the road that with thier
co-operation the road can be built.
It seems to be the opinion of those
concerned that the money ought to
be raised this fall and winter, the
organization perfected and all prepa
rations made to begin work as soon as
the conditions of the road will permit,
in the spring.
It also seems to lie agreed that even
if all the stock is not subscribed this
fall, the work should be commenced,
and that we should work at each end
of the road at the same time. The
plan suggested is to build five miles
from Columbia this way, and at the
same time construct the road to Rus
sell Springs, which is about five miles
If only ten miles of the road can be
constructed next year, the tolls could
be collected on that part. More in
formation will be given from time to
time .through the columns of the
paper, as the work of subscription prp

J. X. Camden, Chairman.
Rev. R. F. Jaudon, pastor of the
Baptist church, Campbellsville, a
very able divine, commenced a series
of meetings at YAon, four miles from
Columbia, the latter part of last week.
We understand that the attendance,
especially at the evening service, is
good. Rev. Jaudon is a very enter
taining speaker and is a Biblical schol
ar. We hope to hear of good results
from this meeting.
The implicit confidence that many
people have in Chambcrlaiu's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is
founded on fchelr experience in the use
of that remedy and their knowledge
of the many remarkable cures of colic,
diarrhoea and dysentery that it ha
effected. For sale by Paull Drug Co.
