The jury in the case of Caleb
Powers was only out a short while
until it returned with a verdict of
guilty as charged in the indict
ment and fixed his punishment in
the penitentiary for 99 years
This verdict does not meet the ap
probation of those who have sought
to discredit the prosecution and
to assert that Powers was free
from crime but at no time have
wo believed that Republicans
would endorse conviction even
though Powers should openly ac
knowledgo to participation in the
crime nor would they have ac
cepted it had the jury been com
posed of bright and shining angels
from the land of perfect day We
accept the verdict as a guarantee
to life as an honest conviction
of twelve men after heariug all the
evidence for and against the un
fortunate man Wo feel sorry for
men who will commit crime but
justice cries out He that shedeth
innud blood by man shall hid
blood be shedand in this case
the jury leaning to mercy has
given Powers a life sentence in
stead of the death penalty Pow
ers should feel thankful lthbnkful
that be is spared to live even in

Nominee for Congress From thob
Eleventh District
It is with pleasure and pride weC
present the above picture of the
Democratic nominee for Congress
in this district We feel it our
duty to acquaint the readers of 1
the News with the nominee in sof
far as we are able but owing to
our limited space a brief mention
must suffice
Ben V Smith was born in 1860 4
in the county of Pulaski where heI
spent his youthful days in tilling
the soil Inspired by a laudable
ambition he set to work in earlyI
life to prepare himself for a suc
cessful business career
Attending the common schools
of his section and with an unyield
ing determination ha finally fin
ished a broad and thorough educa
tion in Kentucky University and
in a normalBchool in Ohio
After a long and arduous strug
gle to educate himself he studied
law and was admitted to the bar
at Somerset in 1800 and has been
in the practice of his chosen pro
fession since that time Mr Smith
is an active party worker always
in line ever ready to advance his
partys interest by hard and un
ceasing work
In 1896 he made the race for the
judgeship of Pulaski county and
reduced the strong and powerful
Republican majority to less than
400 He has served as State Cen
tral Committeeman in this district
to the entire satisfaction of his
party resigning to accept the nom
ination for Congress Mr Smith
is an interesting speaker thor
oughly posted and eminently fitted
for the high and honorable posi
tion for which his party has se
lected him
He is a man of recognized abili
ty a Democrat of unflinching
nerve and there is not the shad
ow of reason why any man who
calls himself a Democrat should
fail to vote for him Owing to
the tremendous Republican ma
jority in the district Mr Smith
may not be elected but the people
of this end of the district should
remember that we need a Congress
man from this district who would
work for the improvement of Cum
berland river and make it naviga
ble to Burnside If this is desired
then we ask you to vote for Mr
Smith who would not forget nor
forsake your needs and demands
if elected but would work unceas
ingly to accomplish good to the
The Democrats of Adair county
should be on the alert Tho Re
publicans have commenced their
organization for the Fall cam
paign and will use every means
te o
poll their full vote They claim
after r
the moon and stars and to hear
their enthusiastic expressions the
uuinformol would conclude that
Mr Beckham was not in this fight
He is as sure to be continued in
office as the day of election is sure
1to come Take a seat and let us
1reason about the matter Last
year on the face of tho returns
Taylor had a majority of some
thing over 2000 when the result j
between him and Mr Goebel was
announced by the Commissioners
Fraud was charged and a contest
followed resulting in the election
of Mr Goebel Mr Goebel was
murdered and Mr Beckham was
declared tho Governor by all the
courts He is now holding the
position legally and is making an
excellent chief Executive In
this contest does any one suppose
that Mr Beckham will receive a
lesser vote than did Mt Goebel
He will poll every vote cast for
the Democratic ticket in 1899
and thousands beside Sixtyper I

Beckham but every Democrat

majority as largens possible The 11

but thank God this unfortunate p
condition does not exist neither do
we believe that it will If mur

then it is high time that the 11 W <
abiding people prevent such eke

before a competent jury comprised
of B Democrats 8 Brown Demo 1

During the Russell Springs Fair
we talked with a number of gen
tlemen who reside at Liberty ask
ing them how many Democrats in
Casey county will vote for Yerkes
Invariably the answer came not

will all vote for Mr Beckham but
one t and that one may conclude to
fall into lino before the election I
Qne gentleman giving the mans

he is a man who is very fond of

Gov Beckham has called the
Legislature to convene in its halls
in Faaukfort on the 28th for the
sole purpose of amending the elec
otton law Wo hope and trust that
it will perform this duty as be
comes honest and courageous men

and not party prejudice so as to
eleminate all tho objectionable
features of the law as it now stands
and thus bring about a better feel
ing taking the measure out of
politics It would doubtless bo
better for the party and better for
th o State We do not expect the
Legislature to make a law to please
Republicans for the purpose of
forwarding their pecuniary inter
ests but to amend it or to make a
new one that will have the sane
tion ofnIl fairminded intelli
gent people We confidently be
lieve that the Legislature will do
its duty as it sees it
