Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 7, 1899.
In my opinion the present contest is
merely a sham battle between the two
old parties to drown out Populism, ana
a greedy scrap and scramble betweeu
themselves fcr the spoils of
office. We have got to either
denounce Jesus Christ and
deny his teachings, or oppose the two
old parties. If Christ was right* both
of the old parties are wrong. .A pop-
ulist who would desert us now and go
over to the enemy seems to me to to

The masses of the people in Est ill
county seem unconcerned over politi-

hard work to get them aroused. They
do not care much who is elected, as

them. What we need is literature to Laurel county to contradict or refuse it

here a referendum club. I think that
when Blair speaks at Owensville the

driving on the right road, and think
we should unceasingly push forward.

The many friends of Jim Hindman,
one of our most efficient workers in the
ranks of reform,will be pleased to learn just like that was between Vince Bore
that he is recovering from the para-
lytic stroke which attacked him some
weeks ago. He is at present at the
city hospital in this city, and doing as
well as could be expected.

Mr. Pratt has made a thorough inves-
tigation of the Roundlap bale in his
mill, and recently published a letter in
which he said that cotton in this form
was worth $2.00 a bale more to his mill
than square-bale cotton. Recently he
telegraphed as follows:
"After two years experience with the
Roundlap bale* of the American Cotton
Company as a manufacturer, I can pos-

erican railroad magnate, one of the
wealthiest men in the United States,

in New York on Tuesday last. He was
in his 56th year of his life.
J. S. Atkins, chairman of the Peo-
ples Party county committee of Carl-
isle county, suggests that Thos. 3,
Pettit, ex-Populist, who is now stump-
ing Kentucky for the Goebel Demo-
cratic ticket, meet Joe A. Parker ai
some prominent place and discuss
thoroughly the points at issue between
the Democratic and Populist parties
The Mercury will speak for Mr. Park-
er, and say that he is ready and wil-
ling to meet Mr. Pettit as stated, and
will do more—he will pay one half the
expense of stenographic report of the
debate, and publication of 25,000 cop-
ies for circulation.
