We have secured it especially for our readers. It is fitting that such a monument be erected, and it is extremely gratifying that it is a Southern product. The kind ly feeling which inspired it and which it typifies, will be generous ly responded to by the North. We have long had this idea in our minds,' only we had located it in our thoughts and plans at an other point, but along somewhat different lines. We believe that there should be erected an im mense bridge across the Ohio river between Cincinnati and Cov ington, spanning the old Mason and Dixon's Line, resting upon four great columns, one each of which should be built by the North, South, Easl and West Let this beautiful structure be typical of the re-united Govern ment, supported equally by the East, West, North and South. In the center of the stream Uf prac ticable), there should be a beauti ful column rising high above the superstructure qf this bridge, sur mounted by the Dove of Peace. The asperities of war have been forgotten, its wounds healed and our country ife re-united in a com mon purpose. The water courses, the steel rails of transcontinental railroads, commerce, the tele phone, the telegraph, and the daily mail, has made us one great family. Dan Cupid, too, has played his part, uniting the hearts of the North and South and fill ing them with a boundless love. There is no East, no West, no North, no South; "We are all but parts of one stupendous whole. Whose body, nature Is and God the soul." Being of both Federal and Confederate blood, I bear no ani mosity to either side. Editor. PAYNTERS SPEECH. We have read with care the speech of Senator Paynter de livered in the United States Sen atein opposition to the Webb ALL KINDS OF ' Field Seeds, Hay, Corn and Oats Let Me Quote You Prices on Seeds. I Only Handle The Best Also STAPLE and FATjCY GROCERIES. 'Phone No 35 and 42 Grocery : West Main St, bill regtrlating inter state ship ments of liquor and we must confess that we are at a loss to tell whether the Senator Is com ing backwards, going forward or just standing still. That he is doing much puffing, making much noise, stirring up the dust and clouding the issue, is very evident That he is a state right er, a federal righter and no righter at all, is quite evident At the conclusion of his effort he could not tell where he stood or why he was there. But he did the best that he could for the liquor trust That the Senate ot the United States would waste its time in allowing a discussion on the con stitutionality of the bill, is ex plained by the fact that it must allow a reasonable time for de bates. Its the privilege of any senator to make an ass of himself at any time or for all the time as for that Some exercise the privilege. In making the constitution, the people delegated certain rights to the states, certain rights to the federal government and retained all others to themselves not spe cially delegated. The right to regulate commerce was one of the rights delegated to congress and thereby prohibited to the states. Congress has power to regulate commerce between the states by express words of the constitution. Sec. 8 of Article 1 says, "The Congress shall have power to regulate commerce among the several states." One form of regulation is by prohibit ing a thing altogefher. But if this should appear far fetched. then the right to prohibit ship ments altogether, remains in the sovereign power of the people, who by their representatives in congress can prohibit the ship ment of liquors entirely or in any territory it may deem expedient That the congress has limited the right to that territory wherein the states have first acted and passed local option laws, does not invalidate the law commonly called the Webb bill. But we will see what the President does with the bill. He is a great law yer. He goes, when his term ends, to one of the great institu tions of learning and he must put the political game behind him. ONE TERM President Wilson will be untrue to himself and recreant to the cause of democracy, if he opposes the bill now pending in Congress to limit the presidential term to one term. The Democratic plat form adopted at Baltimore stood unequivocally for this, and pledg ed Wilson to a single term. That our readers may know that we are right we quote the platform declaration: - "We favor a single presidential term and to that end urge the adoption of an amendment to the Constitution, making the President of the United States ineligible for re-election, and we pledge the candidate of this con vention to this principle." It is said that Governor Beck ham, who is now a candidate for the office of United States Sena tor from Kentucky, was the author of this provision of the platform. It matters not who wrote it it is in the platform, and Governor Wilson accepted the platform and thereby adopted this pledge for himself and the party. The Democratic party must re deem its pledges. The President of the United States must keep his pledge to the people. The D.B.McKinney Richmond, Ky Democratic representatives in Congress must be true to the pledges of the Democratic party. We believe that the States will refuse the amendment, but never theless, they should be given the opportunity to vote on it MR. WATTERSON Kentucky's veteran editor, Marse Henry, celebrated his sev enty-third anniversary on last Sunday week, the 16th, Inst. He has been and is now a most pic turesque figure in journalism. independent in thought and ex pression, his writings are always read with interest The editor of The Madisonian has always been one of his admirers and has en joyed his editorials and has prof ited by them. While we differ from him in many things, we have always accorded to him sin cerity of purpose. May he have many and pleas ant returns of the day. Now that Congress and the several States have pure food laws on the statute books, why not put a few laws on the books to protect people from worthless fabrics sold as genuine wool, pure linen, all silk, &c This will giv some great, renei irom me I frauds that are being Worked On ' the people daily, not by the mer- J chant but by the wholesale house ' vilirill in. y l();i(lllt ULUI lui in meeting, you gentlemen who want to represent this good old county of Madison in the next legislature. rY tno,l -Drt-Aenrkt Wmt-kL- nn( SPECIAL JUDGE Hon. J. M. Benton has been de signated by the Governor to hold i a special term of the Bath Cir cuit Court in the absence of the regular judge, Judge Allie W. Young. With Judge Bent'on af ter the Breathitt county outlaws in Clark county and Judge Allie W. Young after them on their native heath, it would appear that they had better 'hide out little ones." . ,. J SILENCE AND NOTHING BUT SILENCE The President maintains his silence in reference to the cabinet and refuses to take the people in to his confidence. He may be right However, the people whom he serves think otherwise. We repeat that perjury is the undoing of the courts and of times brings them into contempt for their apparent failure to mete out justice. Go after them good and strong and be sure that it is not confined to Breathitt county peo ple. There are others. The militant Suffragetts will take a hand in the publicity act in the National capital and have an immense procession, them march. Probably they will Let can demonstrate that they can once more take up their lost art of housekeeping. Politics "are" getting powerful warm around about Frankfort If the public treasury is empty, as Gov. McCreary's political enemies charge, he will not have much trouble in showing the cause therefor.

Of Miss Vorles, In "Mr. Bob" too much cannot be said, her acting was spontan eous, her manner Irresistable. Pattie, the maid, "daffy" on dramatic art was truly ludicrous and shared the laurels with her. Philip Royson and Katheryn were both extremely good while Mr., Brown, Miss Rebecca, and stolid Jenkins were all roundly applauded and gave evidence of great histrionic ability. The vocal duet by Miss Elizabeth Hume and- Mr. Geo. B. DeJamett with Mm. Johnson at the piano was quite a feature of the evening and the gifted young singers were called back to the stage.
