p trade says No correct report of fail
ures in Ib09 can be made until the year
has closed The failures thus far re
ported are fewer in number than in any
e year since 18S3 and smaller in amount
of commercial liabilities than in any
year since 1881 General business is
thorc ugbly safe and prosperous and no
important firms have failed save some
which were individually connected with
concerns involved in speculation Wheat
and cotton speculation has taken a holy
day prices scarcely varying and the
movement of both is surprisingly small
The industries are closing the most ex
traordlnary year of their history Long
established branches have increased their
capacity new industries have enlisted
r vast capital and the improved condi
r tions for the future are almost beyond
calculation Electrical developments in
light heat and power in making catar
acts work wonders in the production of
materials and providing transportation
all over the land deserve especial atten
tion The increase in demand for iron
and steel products is the great feature of
l the year The average of prices closes
119 5 per ceut higher than January 1 for
pig and 1028 per cent higher for prod
t nets Failures for the week have been

we need in this town more push more
energy on the part of everybody Lets

something even if we make a mistake

THE man who entertains a proposi
tion to sell his vote or influence is just as
guilty as the man who makes the offer
We have no respect for John Whallena
political methods and less for Dr lIar

j both men ought to go the pen
THE people of the town are opposed to
the open saloon They have said so at
the polls There is nothing technical
aobut their votes The will of the ma
jority expressed at the pulls is law and
should be respected

Is this correspondent quite sure that he
is correct in making this assertion Did
the century really end with the it

clearly demonstrated that the twentieth

make note
It was with pleasure that I learned of
the substantial victory won by the tem
perance workers of Cloverport and it
will be a source of greater pleasure if the
law proves more effectual than it has in
Lewisport Never before perhaps has
the ineffectiveness of the law as applied
to Lewisport been more clearly proven
than during the Christmas week just
past Jugs Jugs jugtl Jugs by rail jugs
by boat jugs by wagon and jn < p by every
other available mode of transit The
streets as full of drunken men as if there
were a saloon on every corner and not a
cent of all that was spent for this went
into the town coffers This is I saM in
fear and trembling for I appreciate the
fact that I may again be accused of pos
sessing a sordid mind and of being actu
ated solely by mercenary motives Past
experience has taught me that to men
tion money in connection with this mat
ter in any way is a grievous offense
However I trust I may be credited with
sincerity when I say it is my earnest
wish that Cloverport may enjoy prohibi
tion in its truest sense and that she
may never see the law subverted and
distorted as it has been in Lewisport

It was only the too frequent use of the
pronoun 1 in Robert Brownings po
ems that this scribe criticised We cer
tainly should have the right to criticise
any of the ancient bards or modern
bards either without any fear of giving
Our heart goes out in sympathy to
our esteemed friend Mrs F Ferry in
her serious illness We hope she may
soon recover and be her own pleasant
self again We are glad that the Ste
phensport holiday entertainments were
postponed on her account Tbe people
were too serious to engage in mirth
We enjoy controversy or rather inves
tigation but we do not wish to pay atten
tion to any of the contemptuous words
hurled at us in Current Topics two
weeks ago We make no pretensions to
any superior literary attainments and
therefore do not risk any failure Com
mon courtesy points us to a better way
of discussion
We congratulate our Glendeane corre
spondent of the NEWS on being so kindly
remembered by his friends the patrons
of his school Well do we remember his
generosity In giving medals when he
taught in this district Several gold
medals that were given as rewards of
merit are still worn by his former pupils
They were as bread cast upon the
waters and gathered many days hence
And now he is the receiver of probably a
more meritorious reward than any he
has given
Parents should be very careful what
kind of literature their children read
Good books create knowledge virtue
and happiness and bad books create the
opposite In preparing food for our
children we would not do such an ab
surd thing as to prepare a dish of poison
ous food We should take as much care
of their minds as their bodies and give
them wholesome food for both
It Is said by some persons that the
standard of religion taught by Charles
M Sheldon in his book called In His
Steps is too high If it is higher than
the standard of religion that Jesus
taught it is too high And if on the
other hand it is lower than Jesus taught
it is too low It is argued that He had a
divine nature and so He had but we
are partakers of His divine nature If so
be that the spirit of Christ dwell in us
The fact that He had a divine nature
makes it more incumbent on us to fol
low in his steps He to our guide our
lawgiver our Saviour He bag prom
ised the Holy Spirit to guldens into all

MANILA P h Nov 27 180010 the
Editor of the BRICKENRIIXIK News SIR
After having a pleasant trip across the
States and the Pacific and tbat hearing
that through some misleading informa
tion some of my friends have learned or
rather heard tbat I have been wounded
will say it is not true In fact I have had
no chance to receive a wound and for
the benefit of my friends now residing in
dear old Kentucky 1 will endeavor to
give a brief description of my trip
We left Ft Monroe Va April 12
1800 over the 0 k 0 R R for Cincin
nati where we were transferred to the
Big Four R R thence to St Louis
where we were again transferred to the
O B A Q R R Here we were afforded
an opportunity to see tbe city as we had
about two hours to lay over using the
usual term We left St Louis for Kan
sas City where we were transferred
again We left there for San Francisco
where we arrived April 19ib abont 000
p m embarking immediately the
U S A TII Warren sailing on tbe
following day Nothing but seasickness
happened until we arrived at Honolulu
on the 27th of April Remaining here
for three days we were offered an ele
gant opportunity to visit the city The
many points of interest were visited and
in speaking of the beauty of the city I
will say tbat it is just such a place as
God bad designed tbe Garden of Eden to
be before the downfall of Adam Sailing
from here the only thing of importance
wao the crossing of the International
Date Line which of course caused us to
lose a day May 5tb After being at sea
for twenty days from Honolulu we hove
in sight of old Luzon and about 200 pm
we crept by the Corrigidor island as
quietly as Dewey had done and directly
before us on starboard side we could
see the wonderful destructive work
wrought upon the Spanish Fleet by the
invincible admiral
Alter laying on board the Transport in
the Bay for nearly thirtysix hours we
finally landed and encamped on tbe
Luneta of Alfonso XII where we re
mained foronly one week
Upon breaking camp we were ordered
to quarter ourselves in a building Known
as the Obras de Puerto where I have
remained ever since
After going into the quarters the duty
of Provost Guard fell upon us and the
conslquente of remaining in the city
befell us People may think that we
have asnap but they are badly mis
taken when they think thus as vigilance
in guard duty in this city Is just as im
portant as on the lines
As I have said before that I have had
no opportunity to go to tbe lines I will
not try to tell you anything about them
for I do not know anything about them
Hoping tbat this will rectify the false
rumor as to my being wounded and that
it will inform them tbat I am in the best
of health I remain with the best of
respect for all of my friends in Kentucky
Very Respectfully
