A HEARTY RECEPTION.
A most sensational tragedy was
committed In the Supreme Court
room at Jackson last Saturday. In
the case of the Louisville & Nash
ville Railroad vs. A. R. Reynolds, for
embezzlement, the defendant had
just been found guilty and sentenced
to six years imprisonment, when lie
drew a pistol and sent a bullet crash
ing through his brain.
It now developes, after an ex
amination of the books, that W. V
(Buck) Tanner, who committed
suicide in Nashville several months
ago, was short $1,1500 In his accounts
as Treasurer of the Tennessee Ceu
tennial Company. Whiskey and
fast women caused the shortage,
and the shortage caused the suicide.
Iven to I!ev. J. II. Lackey, Formerly of
tills County, at Cumberland, O.
The Cumberland (Ohio) Echo, of
the date of March 21, in speaking of
the reception tendered Rev. J. H.
Lackey, who was paster or the Cum
berland Presbyterian churches at
Santa Fe and Carter's Creek in 1898,
"According to his arrangements,
Rev. Lackey's family was to reach
here last Friday evening, and he
consequently went to Newark during
the day to meet them and accom
pany them to their new home. But
it seems that what followed was not
down on his programme. During
his absence the members and friends
of the church got possession of the
parsonage, and the supply of vic
tuals, groceries, and in fact every
thing which goes to make home
happy and comfortable, for both the
inner and outer man, which they
stored therein, was in the vernacu
lar of the street "a plenty." The
good people fairly outdid themselves
in their liberality, and left their
pastor and his family, as tokens of
their deep interest in his welfare and
their sincere appreciation of his
zealous labors in the midst already,
a most handsome testimonial and
substantial rememberance. To say
that he is grateful to them would
be but feebly expressing his feel
ing." Children like it, it saves their lives.

announced the passage of the House Cub.vi resolutions with the Senate
amendments. InstanMy the galleries were all attention and members
leaned forward in their seats.
The leaders watched each other with intent, alert features. The first
move was important. As the resolution were read the declaration with
regard to the recognition of the independence of Cuba were vociferously
cheered by the Democrats. This demonstration was repeated when the
reading was concluded. Both Mr. Dingley, the tl or leader of the majori

Washington, April 18. The Cuban resolution

The Senate refused to agree to the House's amendments, and sent the
resolution back to the House, and that bo y, by another decisive vote, re
fused to agree with the Senate.
After a great deal of discussion both branches then appointed confer
ence committees, and the resolution was placed in their hands.
After a series of conferences lasting until 1:15 o'clock Tuesday morning,
an agreement was finally reached.
Concessions were made by both House and Senate on the final confer

tion that the following words were stricken out in the first clause; "And
the government of the United States hereby recognizes the republic of
Cuba as the true and lawful government of that islaud."
The committee reports were promptly adopted by both Houses.

Let me borrow an illustration. I
have heard so much and read so
much along this line that I hardly
know what is original. The truth is,
I don't care much about originality,
anyhow. There is so little of it in
the country. Laughter. If the
bishop should be standing at my
front gate with bis gold-headed
walkiug-stfck, and a mad dog was
to run up, I would jerk that cane
out of his hand and break it into
pieces over the mad dog; and if he
should say, "George, you have used
my cane," 1 sbouid say, " thank
God, 1 have killed the mad dog."
In fighting this mad dog of hell.
whose poisonous fangs are piercing
our homes, I don't ask where I have
gotten the stick; I pick up anything
I come across that will do the work.
But let nie give you this illustration :
Here are four American machines.
Look at them. The first is a saw
mill, the second a grist-mi'I, ttie
third a paper-mill, the fourth a gin
mill. Let me ask them some ques
tions. "Hello, saw-mill, what is
your power?" "Steam or water.
"Turn it on and let the wheels buzz.
What is your material?" "Logs."
"What is your manufactured arti
cle?" "Lumber." "Lumber worth
more than logs?" "Yes sir." "Then
you take the raw material and
manufacture it into an article worth
more than the raw material?"
"Yus." "Then vou create valuee?"
"Yes." "You are a good machine
We will put our arms around you,
and preserve you as an American
industry with honor." "Hello
little machine, what are you?" "1
am a grist-mill." "What is your
power?" "Steam or water." "Turn
on the power. Let us hear the
music of the wheels, the creak, and
the creaking old mill, Maggie
What is your raw material?'
"Wheat and corn." "Whit is your
manufactured article?" "Flour and
meal." "Flour and meil worth
more than wheat and corn?" "Y'es.
"Then your manufactured article Is
worth more than the raw material?'
"Yes." "Then you create values
and we will put our American arms
around you and protect you as an
American industry of honor
"Hello, little machine, w;nt ar
vou?" "lam a paper-mill." "What
is your power"" "Steam or water.
"What is your raw material?
"Old rags. "What Is your manu
factured article?" "Linen paper.
"Linen paper worth more than oh
rags ' "es. "Ihen take your
place with American industries
"Hello, machine, what are you',
"lam a gin-mill." "Look here,
have not much confidence in you
l ou may have to have witnesses to
what you say. What is your pow
er?" "The votes of the Church peo
ple of this country." "Shut up."
Great applause. "Yes, Stuart,
that's right," says the gin-mill.
"You ask some of these men The
very day that all the Methodists and
all the Raptists, to say nothing of
all the other denominations, shall
cease to vote for me, that day I stop,
stock still, never to go again'" Ap
plause and crins from the audience:
"That's so." Mr. Stuart turned on
the platform and asked all the min
isters: "Brother, istbisso?" "Yes,
sir." He turned to the audience
and said: "Every one that says
this is so, answer yourself." And a
great cry of "Yes! yes! yes!" came
from all parts of the tabernacle. " I
had to have a great deal of evidence
to believe what you say. Rut they
have put it down on me. I must be
lieve it." The power of the saloon
is the votes of the Church people in
this country ; they bold the balance
of power. "Turn on your power, ye
members of the Church of Christ.
Start your infernal machine. Run
it day and night, week-day and
saoDHtn. nut what is your raw
material?" Mr. Stuart called three
little boys to the platform, put his
arms around them, and stood a mo
ment while the audience appluded.
"What is your raw material, I ask?"
"Uur American hoys."-
A young man was shot down in
the streets of Atlanta some time ago.
He was drinking. The man who
shot him was drinking. In his
pocket was found a list containing
the names of eightv-five vounir men
On the paper was written: "These
youngmen, to my knowledge, during
the past few years have gone to
their graves by liquor in Atlanta,
Ga." Why are these little boys bet
ter than the eighty-five? They were
mothers' boys, once as sweet and ns
innocent as these. How much de
pends upon whose boys you take !
When preaching in Austin, Tex , I
called a little boy to the platform.
After my sermon was over, the pas
tor of the Methodist Church said:
"George, do you know whose boy
you called to the platform for your
illustration?" "No," said I. "He
was the boy of the bookkeeperof the
biggest wholesale liquor house in
town." That night in our gospel
meeting, a man came weeping to the
altar, and said: "I am the man
whose boy you had on the platform
last evening. Pray for me. that I
may be a Christian." Brother,

When I made the liquor fight in
Monroe, La., I stopped at the home
of a banker. After my speech one
night, the house of the banker was
set on fire and here let me say, that
the men back of this infernal liquor
rafllc will do anything to stop the
fight and perpetuate their nefarious
business. During my liquor light in
Tennessee they burned down my
two barns with my buggies and my
horses, and any man in this country
who takes up the liquor fight takes
his life in bis hands. Au old mend
of mine came to me and said:
Georire, this light ought to be made,
but the people of your town love you,
and do not want to see your prop
erty burned up. Let somebody else
do the work in your state." I said
to him: "Wife and I have talked
the matter over, and we tire willing
that they shall burn our property,
and when the cause needs it burn us
too, but they will never hush my
voice nor check my elTort. The vic
tory over this infernal tratllc must
rest on the ashes of martyrs, and we
may us well bgin. Applause.
But to my illustration. The liquor
men set fire to the banker's house in
which I was stopping. The cry of
fire was heard. Ho went to the
telephone, which was near mysleep-ing-room.
His voice was as soft as
a woman's. He called up central.
' Central, can you tell me where the
fire is?" When told that she
thought it was the cotton compress.
he replied: "Thank yon, Central.
But on going to his rear door and
opening it, the lltines were leaping
from his own building, lie threw
up both hands, and screamed at the
top of bis voice: "My (Sod, wife, it
is our house! It is oir house afirel"
The wildest excitement prevailed.
The good fire company, however,
saved us from much damage. The
next morning I said: "Mv friend,
when you thought it was the other
man's'house afire, it was, "Central,
where is the fire?" in the softest
tones and the most indifferent way;
but when you realized it, was your
own house afire, how different your
conduct! When the liquor fire
touches your home, you will be
aroused to this subject. Here are
"These boys?" "Yes, yes, yes,
yes." 'Turn on your power."
"Give nie these boys." But, listen.
Whit is that I hear? A man from
the audience cries: "Not that boy;
he is my boy." But w ho are yon?
This is an American institution, she
has got to run. What care we for
homes and hearts and lives. "(Jive
me this boy." What is that I hear?
Another cry? It is a mother: "Not
that boy; he is the joy of my home
and the light of my lire." "Shut
your mouth. Who are you? What
are American women and children?
This is an American institution, and
she has got to run If it takes mil
lions of boys annually from the
hearts and homes of our land, she
has got to run. Give me th it boy."
"Turn on your power." Grind I

manufactured urticle, body, mind,
and soul ground up. There it is.
What is it? A drunkard. .Who is
the drunkard? Mother's darling
boy. What is he fit for? The rail
roads won't use him. The stores
