The Populidt, Campaign Book will be
ibeaed this week. The other campaign
.boots hare been oat sometime. j The
aielaj in issuing the Populist book was
caused by deliberation aa to .whether one
ahould be issued at all. It differs some
what radically from either the Democrat-
ic or Eepablicaa campaign books, ia
thatUessphasiaea its discussion of the
' traneportatioa question .- in . connection
with the money question. : The . book
" Kjeerta that M those Who profit by our
, pemidoua monetary laws and disenmi-
aatig rystem of taxation, together ' with
tthose who control . our ' transportation
tiacilitkf, hare created odious trusts and
monopolies. t the? are taking an
. :aciire part in politics and are placing
itheir entire power behind and in support
ol the gold standard.
In Tiew of the claims made by both
" parties as to Kentucky," the opinion of
:ilx. M. J. Richmond, wboae fonper prom
.iaence in Kentucky politics enables him
. ."to speak with authority, enhanced by his
' . now being practically wut of politics, is
; interestinz. If. Bichmood. who has
; jast come to Washington from Kentucky
said: Itis extremely dimcult to saj
i bow the electoral rote of Kentucky will
igo. - The betting b even, neither aide
being willing to give odds. My opinion
i ia that the whole question hinges on the
l Populut Tote. That was 23,000 in the
. i last election, and supposing it goes solidly
tfor Bryan, tne question is whether it will
' xceed the lues of sound money Demo
' crsu who will vote either for McKinley
or Palmer. . I .think ,a majority of the
wtMind money I)BmocraU are going to Tote
the Republican ticket ; In Corington and
Newport, there ia a large German Galb-
: otic element, which ia strongly for Bryan,
: and I beliere meet of toe .working men
art on his aide. - One of the odd features
af the campaign ia the attitude of 'Pole'
Cariisie, a,brotlier of the Secretary, who
. Is Tfafitmaster at Covington. He ia an out
nd oat Brjan man, . and when Bryan
.came to our town to speak was ooe of the
first to rush to the stand ' and . grasp him

Impecunious voters in certain States to get

the campaign ii was thought that few of
the rank and file of Government employes
would go to the expense of soing to their
homes to vote, owing to their belief that
the civil service law woald keep them in

. nss been a great change, and it is now
probable that aa unusually iarge percent
age of them will go home to vote also
that moot of them will vote for McKinley,
' not so much because of any decided pref

election. This change has been brought
about by tbe continued assertions, which
have not beta denied, that if Bryan is
sleeted there will be aa all-around shake

A leading Populist said lodny that in
regard to the proposition, if snch it can
be termed, made by the Democratic central
committee to the Populist central com
mittee regarding Congreeioni! fusion,
that it seemed to him the "mountain
had given birth to a mouse." He said
there were only two plans lor the Demo-
P: one t
o have co fusion at
own straight ticket;
the dther to have complete fusion from
connty officer to U. S. Senator.
Is it generally known, or is it known at
all, that Senator Butler ou the 5th or Junt
last, proposed total fusion to tbe Demo
ocratic committee ? iur correspondent
is told such U the case. -

movement to join forces so a9 to surely

which were brought against her by United

that, as they will make enough out of the
expedition to pay all their fines if tbey
are lound guilty. The cruiser Newark
