there next Thursday. VTe make the

that Mr. Bryan will sptak in

rates will be given by the railroads,
and it is probable that a large crowd
will ?0 to Colombia to hear tbe great
Democratic orator. If the weather is
good, we hope that oar Colombia

So many speeches have bean made
on the RepnbJican alrg'e gold cuna&ra
that we cannot begin to read all of
them, bnt we have been specially in*
tereated ia the speech of Congressman
Bates, of Tennesste. He shows how
inconsistent the Republicans have
For instence, Mr. Blaine in flee
Fifty-fifty Congress a?ed thi? lau
ttrtavp r
" "The ieaticction of silver as money
and establishing gold u the sole unit,
of Talue mutt bate a ruineas effect oe
all forms ef property. except those investments
which yield a fixed return
ia money. These would be ttiormotuly
enhanced in value end would gain a
disproportionate and unfair advantage
overjevery other species of property."
Mr. McKioley'a former position on
the money question ia well known,
bat tb8 following, given by Mr. Bates,
> from the Presidents speech at Toledo,
Ohio, in February, 1891, not so lonj?
ago, mast be especially embarrascief
to him: T

wmm^ tbe price of fold. Ho
evea before bio iaaugaration in office,
to stop the coinage of silver dollars,
and even afterwards and to the end of
his administration persistently used
bis power to that erd. He was determined
to contract tke circulating
medium aad to demonetize one of the
coins of commerce, limit the volume of
_1 moaey among the people, make money
1 scarce, and therefore dear. He would
have increased the value of money and
diminished the valne cf everything
else?money the master, everything
el?e the servant. He was not thinking
of 'the poor7 then. He had left their
side. He was not staading forth in
their defense. Cheap coat?, cheap
labor, and dear money. The sponsor
and promotor of ttos? professing t > |
stind jsard orrr gthe welfare of the
poor and lowly. Was there eTer
|-:;L mo;^e inconsistency or reckless assumption?"
'Inconsistency"? Why, yea, yon,
i v Mr. McKinler, hare been guilty oi far
greater "inconsistencr.*' "He (Cleveland)
wat not thinking of 'the poor'
iben." Are you, now, Mr. McKiuN-y,
thinking of ''the poor"? If what you
said in 1891 wa* trae, ttive you * r
"left their side?''
Whatever mar be one'* viewt. on the
money question, ire cannot se# howanyone
can respeefc the opinion of
Pre?i.leat McKinley on that question
a? of any ralae whatever. Wbat a
flopper be has been.
The Democrat# will very likely wiu
in Kentucky, and they will do ao by
peaceful method*. Tbe Kentucky af
fair forcibly illustrate# how it pays to
keep within the law, and seek one'*
right* isi an orderly and regular way.
The country at large did not admire
Goebel. He wai considered & regular
politician acd tricky, but be had the
wisdom to keep him?elf and his follower
within the letter of the law.
I On ihe other band Governor Taylor
deil?d the law. Unquestionably Goebei
was ?hot and killed by a Republican,
and Taylor tough! to aiake all
out of the advantage ,tbus gained.
| * The killieg of Geebei and the high
handed proceedings of Taylor has enlisted
the sympathy of all the decent
?nd law-abiding people.of the country
with the Democrats. Th<* bayonet
niitn! mlo nnt ?nrinre in tkis
csuatrr. It will terrorize for awhile,
B bat the law ia the tad will surely surmount
it and all those who resort to it.
The conduct of the Democrats ia
Kentucky shoaid encourage all lawabiding
and law-loring citizen to ake
obeer, ana it should teach all othera
?1^^ that it never pays to depend npon the
rifle to rale a people. Up to this time
!?> it appears that Tar lor will hare to
give up. We tske it that the agreement
reached practically ends the
trouble in faror of the Democrat.It
Irs agreed that both parties will submit
to tbe action of the General Assembly,
and that all parties will unite in an
rifort "to brisg about rnch a modifies*
tiun of the election law as will provide
far non-partisan election boards and
fair elections." Tke w*ut oi fair election
if probably at the bottom of all
the tronble in Kentucky, and if the. ?
radical proceedings shall lead to an
improvement in the election lairs, it
will greatly compensate for the dis*

shall be removed from the Stat# capi- j
?*] "at once." The 8fcate iroops hvre
bgen the means by which Taylor has *
usurped the State government, and his j
representatives having consented to c
their withdrawal means a ba^kdow*. i
The law has proved stronger than the c

years the a?s:>ciati?n would have a ]
capital of $500,000. Ia order to do
this the 109 stockholder? would have
to pay $60 a year, or in other words
each farmor would have to subscribe

shares; some might take more, and
some less so that the average would be
five shares for eaeh member. With

In the building and loan association
the payments are made weekly or
monthly. This is best for people receiving
wages weekly or monthly. ,
Naturally the farmer can't pay in this
way. Let the farmer make his payments
as follows: Oae-third 15th October,
one-third 15th November, andone-third
15th December of each year, .

People are naiurally incredalous of
any proposition'to extend credit to a
poor - farmer. Those acc?itom?d to
deal with the individa&l farmer are
more or less timid about him in all
money transactions. "You will never
jet the farmer to pay promptly;" r<the
farmers won't co-operate, not tven
with each other." These are the sort
ojp expressions that are made about
establishing credit amongst farmers.
These pauae thinars were tra9 aboni th?
individual working man whose credit
is now so good in the building and
loan association or before be iearned
the value of co-operation and how to
co-operate. Part of the -farmsro' deficiencies
are because he has been
swindled 8o_much bv different kinds _
or money lenders. Vvhen the working
man found himself honestly dealt
with through the bnilding and loan
association be became at ouce a p. uinpt
payer and with a fair chance nearly
very man is a good payer.
Select ihe ?..ik ?; farmers and make
reasonable conditions as to credit and
ne can be made a prompt payer al-o.
In Germany this is already done.
The German farmer ha? not only become
a good payer through the land
loan or co-operative farmers' bank#
but tbroach tbe same basks he La?
saved mouey and become pro.speroifs.

German agricultural tanks have enor- '

and actually loan money to the impcriaJ
banks io time of need Like <
the savings banks of Massachusetts
and the building aud loan associations
of Peun?ylvania and North Carolina
these farmer's co-operative banks of
Germany have come to be i he strongest
financial institutions of the oation.
f Farmers co-operative banks can be
made successful 111 this county if properly
organized and properly operated.
It is important ia getting op tbe memberthip
to pick out only those farmers
who are attentive to their bntines* audof
reliable character. Such an institution
could accumulate savings from
its- members and then loan this accumulated
capital to its members. If
in the early (lays of the organization
mora money was required lor tke
legitimate u?e of its m*mber# the corporation
could borrow tbis naoBey on
term* far better th*n an individual
.member could do and tben tbe nunagtcmant

local credit of etch member.

The tniechaiiic-goes voluntarily to the
bui ding and loan association to pay
his does; the farmer is careleis aoout
the matnrlty of hia debts. The meaiianic
expects no notice about his

will coioe to collect, the debt; the farmer
expects to be dirnued aud iu

Th*ae statements are not made ?imply
to criticise the farmer. I should rather
argue that the farmer ought to hare
better credit and ought to. be more
