I'KICK PKtt IX ADVANCE, YKAlt, $1.50. S1.25 WEDNESDAY, MAKCII 31, 1S97. The Corbin News is simply a il.in ly, and deserves Bnccess because it is an all-round good sheet. Democrats at Frankfort stick it out and prevent an election of a Re-p iblicar, which in tirn w 11 prevent the U. is. Senate from passing a bipli UrifT Otherwise they will he responsible for it. Thursday. April 1, is the day appointed by Chairman Renick, of Clark, for meeting of the Democratic Committee of the 23th Judicial District composed of thecounties of Madron, Jessamine, Clark and I'ow ell. The meeting ill take place at 10 am,, at the I'ccsc Hause, Winches ter, rb :n the time and manner for a iJemocratic candidate for Circuit Judj;e and Commonwealth's Attorney will be determined. Let Editor Walton lay not down his arms in the cause of the people .. ".Money and Morals," even though the Star-Eye 1 Goddess turn npon him that evil ejuand corroding pen. The "craft that is doomed to wreckage" is the same which the Courier-Journal captained for many aytar its cause the same vl icb the editor of the Courier-Journal his than ten oars ago. and which but forliissednctHjnbv the money hoarders of the Est be would yet be advocating. Such doertion as this come-with ioor grace and luw won for the Courier-Journal complete contempt and substantial isolation from the very ones to whom it was long a guide and Hesby "Wattbkpos i mad when fie is not tifjht and tifrht when he's not mad, ele the would lonjrago liavo gotten hack into line for party success as Dick Knott i doinjr. The l'ot i iutthiR up the best of arguments for Democratic lnrmony, but Mr. "Watter.-on and Mr. Iliildeman are out of touch with the people, the large majority of them, thatV why the Louisville DNpatch i a n;ceity, and thatV why editor "Walton wiys: "Come back in the lniat. Mr. and bring your Knitting and the Courier-Journal with you and we will again together , 'skim the waters with a "wet sail and a flowing sea and a wind that follows fat," or words to that effect." Tjie Democratic County Commijtee met last Friday afternoon to take steps regarding the coming primary election, the Jessamine Journal. "The meet ing" "was very harmonious and the in vitalion extended m the gold Democrat w .is certainly the light iwe. Now if thegoW Democrat!-do not wish to affiliate with the partv, the fault lies with them and i.ot with the committee." The following resolution was adopted: "Relieving that the best interetsof the people of Kentucky are bound up in the Democratic party, and that Democratic control in local atlairs i absolutely essential to the peopleV welfare, ae invite all Democrats, regardless of differences of opinion upon questions of national jioliey, to unite in the selection of good men for the offices, thus insuring to county an efficient and economical administraton of local affairs. It is ordered that all legally qualified voters who consider theniaeives Democ rats, and who will support the nominees of this primary election, and all young men now under the age of twenty-one. but who w ill arrive at the age of tn years on or before the day of the general election in November, lfc'.IT, and who declare their purpose to affiliate with the Democratic party, shall be entitled to vote in said primary election." Vxi'EK the new Republican high tariff, the increase of the tax in certain scbed ules is worthy of spccnl notice. On tobacco the proposed increase is from 10!l to KM per cen. Wool, w Inch paid 44 27 under the McKinley Rill, is expected to pay 54 50 per cent, under tlie"moderate" tarifr of Mr. DingleV Woolen yarns mount from 30 to 100 per cent.; oilclothb from 4S to 100. Blankets are raised from 29 to H) per cent ; flannels go up from 4S to 100; dress goods from 40 :55 to 100. Shawls rise from 40 to 112 01 per cent. Hats of wool from 3.i to 90 per cent. This might be pursued indefinitely, but the rales mentioned give a good idea of the bill, especially in the woolen schedule, which is the point where protection made its most formidable charge. Under the present law, in 1S0G, the average rate on dutiable goods was 33.04 per cent In 1S93, nnder the McKinley law, it was 40.5S per cent. In other words, under the Dingley Bill, in its present Ehape, the rate of taxation will be about 17 per cent, higher than it is now, and about S per cent, higher than it was under the McKinley law. This percentage is estimated on the amount of dutiable importations. If we compare the tax it6elf now and the probable tax of the Dingley Bill, it will show an increase of some 34 per cent. And yet there are patriots who would go naked and starve that our "iufant industries" might give employment to a few at the expense of all the American people. Is The Negro Still a Slave? As might have been expected the Pantograph, speaking for the white Republicans, rubs its cheek np against the negroes and says, "We love the niirger." The Climax repeats all it ever said concerning the stupidity of the colored vo ters of this and even- other county for not demanding something for their indispensable services to their party, and nothing the Pantograph has sail or can sjy should deter the colored people from E2lecting some of their most respectable and able citizens and offering them for official recognition. The Democratic party owes the negroes nothing politically, though it does talc care of the few who ote that ticket. As for nominating any of these, this challenge comes with poir grace from a party whose very slaves the poor Negro has been erer since the war. There are a number of highly educated and influential colored men in Madison who might with justice and propriety ask a nomination at the bands of their party, and the time to do it is right now. Another thing, we would liko for tho colored voters to do a. little of their own talking, as we do not be lleve thatthe Pantagrsphj has ban f "Wince Ballard is unfit for the duties of Jailer, and cannot make a winning fight," let itaflirm that there is a colored Republican who is fitted for the place and able to win, and nominate him! LOCAL, Fifteen Children Born to Them. A case without a parallel, in this county at least, is that of Mr. and Mrs. John Forbush,who are respectively 35 and 153 years old, and to whom last Thursday wa born their fifteenth child. All of the children except one, a twin, are living. The family resides on the Roonesborough pike just beyond Mr Dan Harber's, and while their home is a small box house they are as happy as the inmates of Windsor Castle. A Gun and a Son-of-a-Gun. Justice has rarely been meted out more promptly than in a case which came to our notice here lastSaturday. A negro man stole a fine Winchester rifle from Mr. John RalFard, of near White's Station and sent it to Franklin, Simpson county, Ky., below Rowling Green, near the Tennessee line. Mr. Ballard cair.o in on Friday and notified Sheriff Simmons of the circumstances, and in exactly twenty hours the gun was located, the thief arrested and lodged in jail, and Mr. Rallard made happy over tho recovery of his property. It came about in this way. Sherifr Simmons mailed a letter atS:40 p.m., Friday, to the Sherifr at Franklin, describing the gun, etc.; that oflicer received the letter, located the gun and telegraphed Mr. Simmons before the hitter's breakfast had settled next morning. Mr. Simmons telephoned to White's Station and the message was sent over to Mr. Rallard's, three mi let away. A posse wju. dispatched to scour the country for the on-of-a-gun, and by two o'clock Saturday he had been run down near Fort Estill by Deputy Sheriff Dudley and landed behind the bars of Castle Wagers. Sons of Confederates Organize The first camp of Sons of Confederates Veterans in Kentucky was organized at the Court house in this city, on Saturday last. David It. Tevis was chosen Captain; Harry Rlanton 1st Lieut.; Frank French Adjutant; Rev. Jasper K. Smith Chaplain; Tom Collins Quartermaster; Dr. H. R. Gibson Surgeon. A meeting was called for Thursday next at 2 o'clock, p. m , at Tevis' Laundry Otlice, to complete the organization and to enroll additional t'harter members. It is earnestly hoped that the sons of all Confeder ate-; Veterans in Madison and other counties will attend. At tho decora tion of Confederate graves here last spring, Rev. Mr. Smith was called upon for a few remark. His extemporaneous oration was lb. of the day. Ah his father a "rebel" ho knew how to talk, and in five minutes there was not a dry eye in the audience. Nevertheless, there was no appeal to pUnHOIli no unpatriotic utterance the story of the lost Cause was rehearsed so pathetically add eloquently that it compelled unbounded admiration as it fell from the lips of this young son of a Confederate, this valiant soldier of the Cross. Dichthcria Ragipg. The Board of Health has taken prompt steps to prevent the spread of diphtheria, and over tho signature of Dr. A. W. Smith, Health Officer, and T. T. Covington, Mayor, ha-, i.-sued the following address: to Tin: citizens ok iiiciimoxd! Whereas there have been two deaths from Diphtheria in our city, the Board of Health issues the fol lowing order, viz: It is ordered that parents keep their children under the ages of fourteen years within their own premises for the period of one week from this date. Ttiat parents report promptly to their regular physicians should a case of sore throat develop in a family. That during the next three months no child is allowed to attend school while Milfcring with a sore throat. That children be kept from homes where there is illness. Section 4 of by-laws of the city of Richmond provides: "Any person within the city who shall knowingly go or send a child, servant or other person under his control from within a home in which diphtheria exists into any public place within this city or to another person's home, or to church, or school where they shall come into the presence of other portions shall be liable to a fine of $.10.00 for each oflense." The foregoing order will be strictly enforced. All phyfcicians are ordered to report any case of diphtheria which may be seen hi' them to the Health Oflicer within twelve hours. A prompt compliance with all the foregoing orders may prevent spread of disease. Any failure to promptly comply -with these orders will be immediately punished. Done by order of the Hoard of Health and Mayor of tho city of Richmond, Kentucky, this 20th March, 1807. Death of a Lady Who Had Lived Under Every President Exccpl Two. Mrs. Susan C.White, affectionately called '-Granny" White, died on Wednesday morning last, at 7:30 o'clock, March 24, 1S97, aged 93 years, 3 months and 20 days. It was our pleasure upon her last birthday, as it has been upon these recurring natal occasions for ten years, to pay a tribute of respect to this now departed saint, remarking that her gentle life had spanned almost from the dawn to the twilight of this century; and that she still lingered to bless those few remaining members of a largo household which had melted away so rapidly in late years. The deceased was born January 4, 1804, at Jonesboro,Tenn.,and was the fourth of thirteen children of Hugh Lowrey White (born in 1776, and died in 1850, aged 80 years) and Catherine Cain, who were married in 1798. Mrs. White w.as only 1G years of ago when sho was united in marriage, 9, 1820, to Claborno W. White, of Abington, Va., the ceremony taking placeat Manchester, Clay county. Ky. Mrs. White's husband died in 1833, leaving only one child, the late Col It. X. White, of this city, father of Mrs. Susie W. Miller and Charles F. White, both deceased, and W. Fant, ot Newberry, H. J. Mrs. j'h ..' e- a'dod to see twooC her ., Richard Wi Miller, Jr., of this1 city, and Susie Miller, infant of MrsMattfo McQowau, of .tl&ata., Ga. -Three Kppolsted to dloUUe vrht.they shall her family setved in Con deceased, her cousin, Hon. Addison White, of Huntsvllle, Ala., and Hon. John D. White, of Manchester, Ky , a nephew. The first named was Speaker of tho Lower House of the Twenty Seventh Congress, and a close friend of Henry Clay. Of her twelve brothers and , only one remains, Sirs. Sallio Russell, of this city, aged 83. FOr the last five years Mrs. "White has miilo her home with Mrs. Russell, and it was a beautiful spectacle 1 to observe tho tender affection exist ing between these aged saints. Tho funeral occurred at Mrs. Russell's on Thursday and was conducted by Rev. L. G. Rarbour, assisted by Rev. Jasper K. Smith. About three score intimate friends of the family were in attendance. Tho pall bearers were Messrs. It. AV. Miller. Win W., David It., Hugh R., and Joseph Tevis, and Clarence E. Woods. The remains wero inferred in the family lot in the Richmond Cemetery, and the grave covered with floral oirerings of attached -friends, conspicuous among which were a large floral wreath with !)3 in a central design, from Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hogue. of "Washington, Ga., and a cluster of immortelles from Mrs. Kate Milward, of Lexington, all of whom were present at the funeral. Mrs. White was a devout Presbyterian, and had been a member for over three-quarters of a century. Throughout her life she was distill-, guished for her great kindness of nature together with a total absence of what is known as childishness encountered in most aged persons. She was a very intelligent woman, possessed of much spirit, but the trait of meekness with devotion to her God was a prominent characteristic. Her life was singularly free from bodily afflictions, though "sorrow's crown of sorrow" sat heavily upon her bead. So that her death came gently and she fell into her final rest with painless easo. Peace be to her ashes. PERSONAL. Miss Dora Rus?ell continues to improve slowly. Mr. J. M. Wright, of New York, a farmer, is in the city. Mr. Thos. Palmer and family left Monday for Rowland.
