July 4th 1892
Much of the beauty and interest
of this speech is lost in our inabil
ity to reproduce the eloquence
and enthusiasm characterizing its
delivery At its close the faithful
phonograph records the heartiest
of applause with whirring swishyl
sounds as of the rapid transit of
huge bouquets striking the orator
This was however soon brought
to an end by a tap of the gavel
even Craig will proceed to re
move the vegetation and clear the
lobbies preparatory to our usual
executive session with closed doors
for business of the greatest im
portance There was then the
sound of retreating footsteps and
shuffling feet until the bang of a
door and creak of a turning key
shuts out the sound altogether
Then followed the moving of
chairs and the sound of subdued
laughter intermingled with quite
fremient gurgling sounds like the
flowing of a red liquid into an ex
ceeding dry and inviting orifice
Then comes a hasty somewhat
subdued voice as from one in au
thority exclaiming Hast the
Noble Centurion estopped the
tell tale phonograph It hath
been attempted My Lord but
cannot be until the spring hath
spent itself and run down After
a little delay come the words from
the same first voice saying Thou
wilt hang thy helmet carefully over
its gaping oer sensitive ear in
such manner that it may sift and
wholly dissipate the sound seeking
entrance and permanent record
therein It shall be done O
Noble Franciscan
Immediately after this speech
the sound of the phonograph is
very indistinct but with careful
manipulation it is equally as intel
ligible However the record of
this celebrated secret session of
the city council of Madisonville
came very near being forever lost
to this age It is supposed that
there was a bullet hole in the top
of the Centurions hat through
which the sound percolated into
the instrument
If you think it would be of inter
est to your readers I will give you
a part of the record of this secret
session as taken from the faithful
phonograph While we cannot
of course understand and appre
ciate the local issues and small
municipal politics which animated
and -disturbed the equilibrium of
this little city in the ages past and
gone yet there will never cease to
be a charm and fascination sur
rounding these little phonographs
which record so faithfully and
with such exactitude whatever
sound may come within their com
pass What thej record of the
long past cannot be of much inter
est to this age except as to their
manner of doing business It is
not so much what they say as the
fact that we may in this age listen
to the exact tone of voice of the
speaker
As mentioned above the tone
of the phonograph is somewhat in
distinct after the order was given
to muzzle it with the Centurions
hat yet the words have been made
perfectly intelligible and after a
gentle tap of the gavel we hear
the following Seniors Such
order only would I insist upon as
will facilitate the timely dispatch
of business which doth stand in
the way of our usual libations and
oblations For I am persuaded
that the lapse of time twixt drinks
is surely commensurate with the
magnitude of our thirsty appetites
What Ho 1 Centurion Let
the libations be forthcoming
Twill facilitate the dispatch of the
citys business to inspire its noble
senators with aqua vita
This speech is followed by a
shuffling of feet and small explo
sions like those following close
upon the removal of champagne
corks and then in deep sonorous
tone may be heard the following
Noble Seniors That which wel
comely wended its enchanting way
down the jewel encircled neck of a
King Solomon that which con
quered him who overcame a world
that which was not but now is
and with it six hundred fair samo
leons from each dealer that we all
love most and of which we say
least aye that which is wiser than
Solomon greater than Alexander
richer than prohibition lovelier
than lady loves even wine is now
before you Arise fall to and fill
to the brim each gaping hungry
goblet
This was followed by no uncer
tain sounds and then there comes
the clearing of a husky voice pre-
ceding these words
Illustrious Lordly Toast Mas
ter By thy gracious leave I would
also a toast Not to absent lords
nor lovely woman nor yet to those
beautiful mythological figures with
which our esteemed friend and
1 loved contemporary would refresh

FREE TRADE THEORIES
AND ACTUAL FACTS
The Homestead strike at Pitts
burg is unfortunate but strikes
like other misfortunes will occur
from time to time in prosperous as
well as unprosperous years as long
as there arc nearly 60000000 in
wages annually to be fought over
Iron is to day selling lower than it
ever did in the worlds history but
this is only one of many causes of
the strike The Amalgamated
Association or union has locked
horns with the largest mill owners
over only a single class of labor
but the more important questions
at issue are the time at which each
years scale of wages shall be put
in operation and the adoption of
improved machinery
The demagogic effort of Demo
cratic newspapers to turn the
strike into an argument in favor of
free trade will fail this year as it
has so often failed before Gov
Campbell made Carnegies great
fortune the chief issue in his
speeches throughout the iron dis
tricts of Ohio last fall and the
result was a gain of 30471 in the
Republican plurality against Camp
bell
In Pittsburg also Democratic
orators told their hearers that in
voting for the Republican candi
dates they were voting to give
Carnegie another 10000000 to
make the rich richer and the poor
poorer This demagogic party
cry was answered by the voters of
Alleghany county three fifths of
whom were iron workers and all
of whom were enabled to cast a
secret ballot

Money has a great liking for
money A single dollar in the
pocket of the poor man is lone
some it never is satisfied until
it has found its companion
Money gravitates towards money
and issue as much as you may as
much as you will the time will
come when that money will be in
the hands of the industrious in
the hands of the economical in
the hands of the shrewd in the
hands of the cunning in other
words in the hands of the capital
ist
What is a capitalist Every
man wlfa has -good licalthtis a
capitalist Every man with good
sense every one who has had his
dinner and has had enough left for
supper is to that extent a capital
ist Every man with a good char
acter who has the credit to borrow
a dollar or to buy a coat is a cap
italist and nine out of ten capital
ists in the United States are simply
successful workingmen There is
no conflict and can be no conflict
in the United States between cap
ital and labor and the men who
endeavor to excite the envy of the
unfortunate the malice of the poor
Such men are the enemies of law
and order
How wealth is accumulated
As a rule wealth is the result of
industry economy attention to
business and as a rule poverty is
the result of idleness extravagance
and inattention to business though
to these rules there are many ex
ceptions The man who has wasted
his time who has thrown away his
opportunities is apt to envy the
man who has not For instance
there are six shoemakers in the
city working in one shop one of
them attends to his business you
can hear the music of his hammer
late and early he is in love it
may be with some girl at the next
street he has made up his mind
to be a man to succeed to make
somebody else happy to have a
home and while he is working he
can see his own fireside with the
light falling upon the face of wife
and child
The other five gentlemen work
as little as they can spend Sunday
in dissipation have the headache
Monday and as a result never
advance The industrious one
the one in love gains the con
fidence of his employer and in a
little while he cuts out work for
these other fellows The next
thing you know he has a shop of
his own the next a store because
the man of reputation the man of
character the man of known in
tegrity can buy all he wishes upon
a credit
The next thing you know he is
married and he has built him a
house and he is happy and his
dream has been realized and his
ambition gratified After a while
the same five shoemakers having
pursued the old course stand on
the corner some Sunday when he
rides by He has got a carriage
his wife sits by his side her face
covered with smiles and they have
got two children their faces beam
ing with joy and the blue ribbons
fluttering in the wind And there
upon these other five shoemakers
adjourn to some saloon and pass a
resolution that there is an irre
pressible conflict between capital
and labor
There is in fact no such con
flict and the laboring men of the
United States have the power to
protect themselves in the ballot
box The vote of Lazarus is on an
equality with the vote of Dimas
The vote of a wandering pauper
counts as much as that of the mil
lionaire In a land where the
poor where the laboring men have
the right and have the power to
make the laws and do in fact
make the laws certainly there
should be no complaint In our
country the people hold the power
and if any corporation in any State
is devouring the substance of the
people every State has retained
the power of eminent domain
under which it can confiscate the
property and purchase of any cor
poration by simply paying to that
corporation what such property is
worth And yet thousands of
people are talking as though there
existed a widespread conspiracy
against industry against honest

THIS PAPER STANDS WITHOUT A RIVAL
LONGTIME CONTRACTS MADE ON AP
toil and thousands of speeches
have been made and numberless
articles have been written to fill
the best of the unfortunate with
hatred The other day in con
versation with one of the leading
men of the Peoples Party of
course he had been taught to hate
everything that came out of Naza
reth and he began to tell me all
about the government having
power to create money by stamp
ing its sovereign upon a slip of
paper and with tears in his eyes
told me about the Republican
party robbing the poor by the re
sumption act which led to coun
teraction of currency in the hands
of the rich and had left no money
to do business with
We informed him that there was
even more than money enough in
the country to transact the busi
ness with Never before in the
history of our government was
money so cheap that is to say
wasJnterestsolowasJt was just
auer ine resumption actanuMiau
been improving ever since There
is plenty of money and we could
borrow all we wished if we had the
collateral We could borrow all
we wished if there was some busi
ness in which we could embark
that promised a sure and reason
able return So these people who
are going about sowing tares in
our political vineyards had better
ask Congress not to create fiat
money but to pass a law giving
them collateral for they could
borrow good money for ij cents
if they had the collateral money
that is worth a hundred cents on
the dollar dollars that can hold
up its head and swear I know
that my Redeemer liveth
If the government should issue
a thousand million dollars of fiat
money how would it regulate the
value thereof Every creditor
would be forced to take it but
nobody else If a banker was in
debt to a farmer for one dollar for
a bushel of wheat he could compel
the farmer to take the fiat
money but if he wished to buy
the wheat the owner could say
I will take one dollar in gold or
fifty dollars in fiat money or I
will not sell it for fiat money at
any price What would Congress
do then In order to make this
fiat money good it would have
to fix the price of every conceiv
able commodity the price of a
doctor visiting the sick the price
of the judge trying a lawsuit or
the price of Dick Harden to make
a Peoples Party speech or the
price of a days work upon the
farm iu short the price of every
conceivable thing This even
would not be sufficient it would
be necessary to provide by law
that the prices fixed shall be re
ceived and that no man shall be
allowed to give more for any thing
than the price fixed by Congress
We do not believe that any Con
gress has sufficient wisdom to tell
beforehand what will be the relative
value of all the products of labor
When the volume of the currency
is inflated it is at the expense of
the creditors class when it is
contracted it is at the expense of
the debtor class
In other words inflation means
going into debt contraction means
paying the debt
UONDIIOLDERS
A great cry has been raised
against the bondholders of bonds
They have been denounced by
every epithet that malignity could
conceive During the war our
bonds were offered for sale and
they brought all they then ap
peared to be worth thfty had to
be sold or the rebellion was a suc
cess To the bonds we are in
debted as much as the greenbacks
The fact is however we are in
debted to neither we are indebted
to the veteran soldiers
These bonds have been paid for
in gold again and again They
have been bought at prices far
above par they have been laid
away by a toiling father for wives
and children
No man can calculate the gran
deur of this country from 73 to
resumption It is a great deed to
die for ones country but we think
the greater heroism is in living for
a thing
In 1873 came the great crash we
staggered over the great desert of
bankruptcy millionaires found
themselves paupers palaces were
exchanged for hovels The fact
was we had been living upon a
credit during the war and now
came the time to pay up The
Democratic party in its platform of
72 recommended the repeal of the

THE CONDITION OF THE
TREASURY
At the close of the fiscal year
June 30 the balance in the State
Treasury amounted to 31235631
including 251603 interest due
from the banks in which the funds
of the State had been deposited
The general fund had borrowed
from the school and sinking fund
312000 and it was the concurrent
opinion of the auditor and the
treasurer that further payment of
claims upon the treasury should be
temporarily discontinued in order
that the collections from sheriffs
and other sources might accumu
late sufficiently to tepYy these
loans before the October demands
upon the school fund should be
made The inconvenience arising
from this suspension of payment
will be merely temporary as the
sheriffs will at an early date begin
their annual settlements with the
State thus relieving the stringency

GRACEY
We learn that the enterprising
citizens of Gracey are agitating
the question of organizing a stock
company for the purpose of build
ing a large flouring mill at that
point with a capital of ten or fif
teen thousand dollars Gracey is
now a railroad town of great im
portance and offers many advan
tages for new industries not only
of this character but for many
others It is situated in the center
of the best agricultural section in
Western Kentucky and has rail
road connections with all points
The completion of the Ohio Valley
to Hopkiusville will still increase
the advantage of the place Her
citizens are intelligent and enter
prising and never do things by
halves and the successful ending
of this new scheme will not be a
surprise to any Cadiz Telephone
