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

Star-Eye 1 Goddess turn npon him that

which but forliissednctHjnbv the money

Such doertion as this come-with

Courier-Journal complete contempt and
substantial isolation from the very ones
to whom it was long a guide and

people, the large majority of them,
thatV why the Louisville DNpatch

"Walton wiys:
"Come back in the lniat. Mr.

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

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.

music, refreshments, readings, etc., alternated
to furnish enjoyment.
The Lilliputian social given Thursday
evening in the College Art Studio by
Mrs. Street for her Art pupils, was an
overwhelming success. Grown people
came attired as children, acting their
part to perfection, and children came
dressed as aged people, dignified and
stately to a fault. The evening passed
in playing such deep, scientific games as
"Drop the Handkerchief." marbles, etc.
The nurse was kept busy scolding and
wielding a switch, which had naturally
little cflect on babies.
i
Berea College closed its most successful
term Wednesday evening, with appropriate
exercises in the College Chapel
the "B" Rhetorical Class blossoming out
finely under the direction of Prof. B. S.
Hunting. I lie music furnishel on this
occasion by Mis' Manmerite Brown.
Howard Einbree, John P. Mann, R.
Thomseu, and the Euterpians, was one
of the most enjoyable features on the
program. Especially deserving of mention
was tfce "The Berea Idler," edited
by Miss Ruth K. Todd, which was fu'.i of
fun and sparkle. The debate as to
whether or not the United States should
interfere in bchnlf of Cuba, was spirited
amiable. At the close of the exercises,
President Frost made an address of pith
and brevity, expressing his pleasure iu
the excellence of the evening's entertainment,
and speaking of his interest
ing tour in the East.
