was a foregone conclusion the inter
est in the matter being only in the
division of the vote on the Democrat
ic side which was not known define
itely until the roll was called all the
Republicans hang for ratification
Fourteen Democrats voted for rat i
fication and fourteen against Two

management of the treaty by Senator
Cullom Chairman of the Committee
on Foreign Relations who has bad
charge of the measure during both
the plain and stormy sailing The f

was anticipated at first
The debate in executive session was
generally on the merits of the treaty
yn
with reference to secret papers which
were sent to the Senate by the Press
dent Senator Morgan made a set
speech which occupied the greater
part of the time Senator Culbertson 1
made comments on the secret corre
spondence and asserted that it show

Senator Culberson real from a letter
a
addressed to Dr Albert Shaw by the
President dated October 10 1913 in
which the President said he saw nt
hope for any negotiation with Colum
bin and that he would be delighted
should a revolution occur on th eold
IsthmusEverything
Everything is ready lor the speedy
consummation of the treaty and both
the War and State Departments have
made preparation for the next step
the former by the dispatch of troops
to the Isthmus and the letter by the
completion of arrangements for the
exchange of ratifications of the treaty
which must take place in Washington
There is no reason why this ceremony C
should not occur within the next
fortyeight hours

matter and very soon after he has
made the exchange of treaties will lay

Collapse of Tobacco Business Re
duces Them to Want and
Crime at Home
Hopkinsville Ky Feb 25 The
utnegrces of Christian county are en
during euch hardships on account of
the collapse of the tobacco business
Itthat many of them are leaving the
connty A large number have during
recent months life to work in mines
on railroad or as teamsters in the
larger cities
Some last vear went to Honolula to
engage in growing sugar cane
Last week a party of twentythree
went to Ita Bena Mis to work on a
big cotton plantation Mr Riley Ely

formerly of this city is interested
with his brotherinlaw in the man
agement of a tract of 7000 acres of
richriver bottom land in Mississippi

are grown Their tenants during
the last two or three years have made
so much money raising cotton that
many families who could not afford
to buy the high priced lands in Mis
slssippi have crossed over to Arkan
sas and bought homes for themselves I
Several families cleared 1000 each
last vear The prosperity of these
tenants has left vacancies to to be fill I
ed and Mr Ely has employed Mr
1
Gatio Henrr to secure about 100 col
ored tenants for his plantatipns and
Mr lir pry will go to Ira Bena to
manage the plantations for him
The first installment of several fame
ilies vent last week and found good
houses waiting for them and supplies
advanced
Cotton has been selling as high asI
IS cents a pound and it is no more
c
trouble to raise than corn it has sent
wave of prosperity over the South
while the bottom has dropped out of
tobacco growing interests of Ken
tucky through the operations of the
trusts that control the entire supply
Nearly all the crop of I9j is still un
sold and the prices offered are below a
the cost of production
Land owners of course suffer but
the colored tenants are reduced to a
condition of destitution and in many
cases to crime to prevent starvation

DEMOCRACY
As Interpreted by ExPresident
Grover Cleveland
Mr Cleveland now takes a stand
for tariff reform economy in the ex
penditure of public money loyalty to
principle a change administration
in the Philippines and I suppose in
the United States and a condemna
tion of Mr Roosevelt for his Panpma
treaty
treatThe
The windjammers of the Demo
cratic party have consumed tons of
air in the treatment of these phan
toms in the past There is an old
story that ought to te familiar to
most people about a father who had
two sons and a certain piece of work
he wanted done He said to one of
his sans Son go and perform that
work and the son tall I go but
he went not and the father said to
the other son Son go and do that
work and the son swore and said
I will not but he went and did the
work We find a parallel in the Dem
ocratic party That party says
Give us control of National affairs
1and we will give you tariff reform
The power is given them and they
answer with that compromise ofny
brad affair known as the Wilson
andt a
little there and none to speak of any
where
The Democratic party was In pow
er two terms Where was the tanff
reform Where the economy of pub
lic money Who defends the foreign
policy of Mr Cleveland Who can
point with any degree of pride to
those administration
The mere reference to those admin
istrations gives Mr Watterson con
niption fits
The people have been treated on
the Democratic sweet wind cure till
its
They must have something a lit e
more substantial
They have heard lo these many
days that the Republican party Is nI
commercial party a party of
trusts and combines They say thi
Republican party is a party of trUdtI
breeders and trust baiters
But If my memory serves me right
the Sherman antitrust law was en
acted during Clevelands last admin j
istration and in due time for him to
t
have applied it but he did not do it
Mr Roosevelt believed that law
was intended to be enforced and ao
a
cordingly he tried its virtue on the
Northern Society Company and with
what effect the reading public know
And because of his firm stand against
bad trust he has Incurred the enmity c
of Wall Street And the calamity f
howlers cite that tact as proof that he
not safe as a leader If Wall Street
for the nominee the howlers say
Behold a man of monopoly and
trusts and if Wall Street is against
him they say Behold a man un

denounced Populism and then seized
on to its wildest vagary 16 to 1 or
