His other ventures in journalism were tho establishment of tho Farmers' Homo Journal, in Lexington, in 1807, which was afterwards transferred to Louisville and is now being successfully conducted. Later on an effort was made to establish a paper of tho samo class at Lexington under the title of tho Kentucky Homestead, but tho times were not propitious and tho publication was suspended after a brief period. In tho Summer of 1603 he was appointed chief deputy collector of Internal revenue under Collector Chas.

These papers are tho oldest, tho most largely circulated, tho most prosperous, and the most influential in the localities in which they are public bed, and their long timo devotion and gent service to the democratic party is beyond question.

They aro not tho "mibBidiz.nl gold -bug press" which tho professional politicians and free silver demngogues bo falsely refer to, but they stand ahoulder to shoulder, with a common Impulse, to resist a far reaching and mischievous error, to combat a dishonest and system and to light an encroachment upon the body of truo democratic principles that threateus tho very life of tho democratic party. Harrodsburg Democrat. . Here Ib a fragment from tho report of the proceedings of tho Owensboro con-volition, which bIiowb how disgraceful were Jhe tactica of tho froo silver leader: Tho wildest excitement prevailed when tho chairman refused to recognize Rhea, tho ellverito, and did recognlzo Burnett, the Rhea mounted a and in nn excited manner said: "I aui hero till tho chair recognizss mo K or until hell f roezea over!" v "Sit Rhea downl" demanded a loud-voiced man. "Ihero la and no man In this hall can put mo down, by God!" nuswered Rhea. Thl3 Ib tho resolution tha,t was adopted by a majority of IS: Wo declare it to be nn elementary principle of democracy's faith that both gold and silver coin shall constitute tho primary money of tho country; that both metals Bhall be received for mint-ago without discriminating against and at the legal ratio that exiotod prlortolS73(10tol) and wo demand tho unrestricted coinage of both gold and silver at this legal ratio and that both petalB bo declared full legal tender in payment of all dobts, public and private.
