vice of the Scripps McRae Press
Association Company of Cleveland
Ohio this week are The Hop
kinsville Kentuckian the Padu

chronicle and the Hopkinsville
Jew Era The Kentuckiak
supposed at the time its trade was
made that it was buying an exclus
ive franchise for Hopkinsville but
we have been notified to the con
trary and the same service is also
being sent to the New Era The
papers of Hopkinsville however
unlike those of many towns dwell

two weeks He visited Bowling
Green Russellville Hopkinsville
Henderson and Paducah looking
for colored recruits for the Tenth
cavalry Lieut Johnsons trip
was not as successful as he hoped

That it was not more successful
was due to the frightful stories told
to would be recruits They were
told that all the army wanted with
them was to make breastworks of
them The result in Henderson
was that he did not enlist a man
At Paducah he was more fortunate

ter the other colored men saw some
of their companions in Uncle Sams
blue suits they joined with more
readiness He got about twenty in

fr A resolution has been introduced1
tb investigate the charge that the
bV claim of the Methodist Jookj
Concern was lobbied through Con
gress I
This action is due to the publica J
tion in the Chicago Record of the
following article and similar ar
ticles in other papers
The truth about the claim of thq
Methodist Book Concern of Nash
ville Tenn for damages growing
out of the destruction of property
by the soldiers during the war is
gradually coming to the surface 1
is now admitted that Messrs Bar
bee and Smith the managers of the
book concern reported to the gen
eral conference at Baltimore the
other day that the sum of 100800
which is 35 per cent of the amount
appropriated by Congress was act
ually paid to E B Stahlman the
lobbyist of the Louisville Nash
ville railroad for securing- the
passage of the bill It is also ad
mitted that Barbee and Smith rep
resenting the book concern made a
contract with Stahlman several
years ago agreeing to give him 35
per cent of any money that might
be appropriated for his professional
services as a lobbyist and thp
claim was increased by that
amount in order to compel the gov
ernment instead of the book con
cern to pay tne tee
The report referred to was sup
pressed and will not appear in the
published proceedings of the confer
ence in order to avoid a scandal
particularly because Barbee and
Smith have repeatedly declared in
public that no fees were paid to
lobbyists and that no agreement
was ever made to pay them Sev
eral members of the conference crit
icised and others condemned the
transaction An attempt was made
to mollify them by instructing that a
portion of the money be set aside as
a fund for the relief of superannu
ated ministers but this was not
satisfactory It did not quiet -the
consciences of several of the breth
ren and they still insist that all of
the money -in excess of the actual
losses suffered by the book concern
should be returned to the United
States treasury They declare that
it would be an insult to offer anv
clergyman money that was obtain
ed by fraud from Congress and
that Barbee and Smith should be
disciplined because they have
shown themselves unworthy to be
intrusted with the responsibilities
of the book concern as they gave a
solid assurance to the Senators
from Tennessee Florida and other
Southern States that no portion of
the money appropriated should be
used to pay for lobbying while they
had a contract with Col Stahlman
to pay him 35 per cent of the pro
ceeds in their hands
