The Bankers' Meet at Stan
ford. The Bankers of Groups 8 and 11,
which means those of the Eighth and
Eleventh districts, met in business ses
sion at Stanford Friday, some 125 or
more strong, and spent the entire day in
threshing over matters concerning the
banking business. It was a most repre
sentative body of men and nearly every
bank in the districts was represented.
Speeches were made by many of the gen
tlemen, including several of the Rich
mond bankers, who also took a promi
nent part in the deliberations of that
body. The ladies of the Christian church
agreed to furnish dinner and refresh
ments and royally did they do so. The
noon meal was a most elaborate one,
while the refreshments at the smoker
were very delightful and were elegantly
served. It was the intention of the en
tertainment committee to lake the visit
ors on an automobile ride through the
count)', but the inclemency of the wea
er knocked out this part of the program.
The smoker at the Opera House at
night was a very enjoyable feature of
the meeting. Mr. Kindrick Alcorn, a
prominent young attorney, acted as the
t oust master and magnificently filled the
bill. There were a number who res
ponded to toasts, including our own Mr.
U. E. Turley, who covered himself with
glory. Other Richmond bankers present
were Messrs. Waller Bennett, Samuel P.
Deaiheragn and G. B. Turley.
The committee on resolutions, which
was composed of Mr. Waller Bennett, of
the Madison National Bank, this city.
Joseph Bertram, of the Monlicello Bank
ing Co., Monlicello, S. B. Lynd, Citizens
National Bank, Louisville, Samuel II.
Nichols, Boyle Bank & Trust Co., Dan
ville, and W. P. Walton, of the Phoenix
Third National, Lexington, presented
the following resolution, which was
We recognize the need of immediate
changes in our banking and currency
systems and call upon our law matters
to enact a law which will red nee the
danger of panics to the minimum and
put the currency system on a sounder
and safer basis.
Other resolutions thanking the bankers
of Stanford for their courteous treat
ment and delightful entertainment of
them, the ladies of the Christian church
who had charge of dinner and banquet,
and Stanford people generally for doing
so much for their delectation, were passed
They also declare for a closer union
between the mountains and the Blue

Mr. Ben P. Hurst, of the Richmond
Heating &. Plumbing Co , went over to
Winchester one day last week and pur
chased the stock of pipes and fillings
carried by the Eagle Casting Co , which
concern will handle that class of goods

plumbing contract on the big Continen
tal Hotel, which is under construction.
The rest he shipped to his place of bus
iness here. The Continental Hotel,
which will cost $05,000, is to be one of
the handsomest in the mountains and

against for the work he got.

-Rich" on Hon. W. B. Smith
Hon. William B. Smith, of Richmond,
one of the multitude who is seeking the
Danville Collectorship, has a rather un
ique record. He has voted for the Hon
orable Secretary of State William Jen
nings Bryan five times for President and
stated this morning that he hoped to
vole for him again. He is a great ad
mirer of the Secretary of State. He
asked if it would be possible to have an
audience with the Secretary and he was
told that wiih the record he had it would
hardly be any trouble to get to see him.
His record is as follows: He voted three
times at the general polls and twice he
was elector and cast his vote for the
Secretary in the Electoral College. He
was the only man who won out in the
Slale of Kentucky during the stormy
times of 1890, and he is very proud of
this fact. Though he is eighty-one years
of age, he is hale and hearty and looks
like he will easily live to cast that sixth
vote for Mr. Bryan. "Rich" in Danville
Another Bumper Crop Year
It is rare that we have two bumper
crops in years immediately succeeding
each other, but if the government May
report is to be relied uptm even last
year's high record will be broken. The
report just issued by the Department of
Agriculture shows the largest winter
wheat acreage ever known in this coun
try to be in fine condition, with an es
timated excess over last year's crop of
more than one hundred million bushels.
The rye crop is estimated at five million
bushels in excess and the new high re
cord for hay, which was established last
year, will be beaten this year, with a
stock on hand at this time double as
large as it was a year ago.
Nature seems to be smiling its broad
est smile upon us, and unless something
untorseen happens prosperity will con
tinue and increase. The Republicans
have all along been claiming the credit
for the good crops. It seems that they
are to continue even under Democratic
rule. To move this bumper crop will
take more money than can be supplied
under present conditions. The strain
last Fall was almost greater than the
country could bear. Thus forewarned
Congress should get busy and give the
country a banking and currency system
that can withstand such strains, and not
permit the basic wealth of the country
to become a menace, as it does under
the present system. W. P. Walton in
Antionette Stockton Hamilton
Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Hamilton have
been called upon to give up their baby
nine months old Antionette Stockton,
Saturday. The end came suddenly and
without warning. Little Antionette had
never been strong, but was not consider
ed dangerously ill when her father left
the home for his store that morning. A
short while after his arrival he was
phoned that she was breathing her last.
The shock was a terrific one to Mr. and
Mrs. Hamilton and in their great grief
they have the unbounded sympathy of
every heart in Richmond. May He Who
tempers the wind to the shorn lamb
comfort them in their distress and give
them strength in this dark hour. At
2:30 Sunday afternoon the little body
was laid to rest in Richmond Cemetery.
Dr. G. W. Crutch field made timely re
marks at the grave and an appropriate
song was sung by Messrs. W. L. Arnold
and Curtis Adams and Mrs. I.C. Ballard
and Willie Traynor. The grave was
hidden underneath beautiful flowers
brought by loving friends.
