Republicanob member of tho Representatives won his contest over Mr Combs Democrat Several Democrats voted in favor of the Republican Mr Harris is from Madison county A gentleman who stands in with his party informs us that from his best information Hon M Rey Yarberry will name the census go takers for Adair county Ho is entitled to the patronage and we trust the report is correct Representative Can trill of Scott and Mr Klair of Lexing ton had a little bout last Friday There were some warlike advauc wo iug upon the part of Ctintrill but the peaceable evacuation upon Mr Chairs part prevented bloodshed The war in South Africa is not over yet It is thought the hard to est fightiug is yet to conic It has cost the British thousands ofmen and millions of money but they will conquer u people tha- should t have been loft undisturbed Taylor has sent two carloads of army equipments including two Gatling guns five cannon and quantities of ammunition to London Ky Ho will probably locate in that town after the close of his unenviable career at Frank fort o Three of the most prominently mentioned Democrats for Gover nor are Gen Joseph H Lewis of Barren t Judge Herschel Goodnight jug of Simpson and W T Ellis of Daviees They are all good men eitliejv 6f whom would unite the trart r 17t n The Republicans of this State surd especially the Republican press tire keeping up a terrible racket in regard to the contest do lUg their utmost to arouse prejudice against the contestants and the Democratic party The great cry is Taylor was elected and the Democrats had no right to con test Then they proceed to talk about the contest as being strictly partisan and that the proceedings are outrageous and then they seek to create the impression on the public mind that Republicans would have gracefully submitted had the count of the votes given the Democrats a mnjorityregard less of how small it may have been This plea may be believed by some but we attach no weight to it whatever The truth is they had openly and boldly announced before the election that Goebel would never be Governor and if elected he would never serve To our mind their own statements clearly indicated that they intend ed to try to control at all hazards and costs and Taylors actions from the beginning of the election down to the present is one bulk of threats and blunders which in part noa mosog now being per P0T trat d that any political party ever attempted but here is a fe cold facts and figures we clip from one of our able exchanges that ought to show that the leaders ut least of the Republican party a not yet so mighty pure and free from party prejudice and are t beneficiaries of contests tried b fore partisan boards where they had the power ICommencing with the Forty seventh Congress and coming down to the present time there have been ton Congresses five of them Democratic and five Republican Within that time 124 contests have been brought before the House of these 80 have been Re publicans and 44 Democrats As as a result the Republicans have tfhen the Fiftyfourth Congress ten unseatt atf on f the returns had over 3000 inajor ity another over 5000 and another over 1500 In the Fiftyfifth Congress the Republicans fired j Fiftysmore were r walking papers One of these had over 0000 majority on the face of returnsWith a party record the Republicans Kentucky Republicans especially should not be tooI severe in their denunciations when contested election case goes against them Mr Taylor onlyI claims to have a majority of 2800 votes on the flies of the returns 1 in several counties where he tained large majorities comes the charge that illegal ballots were used If the ballots were not legal then Taylors majority was not legal no difference if it had been 50000 In other localities the State soldiers were called out when there was no demand by the voters of said communities If Governorship ofr Kentucky must to a man whose party has trampled under foot the election law to obtain his election whose parti san friends have threatenedanni hilation of every power that op posed them and who have resorted to dangerous threats that have been so painfully fulfilled then believe that Kentucky is in a bad shape Itis in a bad shape and the Republican party that has been crying stop thief must shoulder the responsibility The impression they have sought make that they would submit had the case been reversed is to cur mind as false as could he They never submit when they can gain a point Their history is crowded with many proofs from the Legislatures of States to the itancesThe Republican leaders of the House are still shaking from the fright given them by their narro escape from a humiliating dafea- n the Porto Rico tariff bill The figurative sackcloth and ashes of Ash Wednesday came very near to being real for them on that day They amended the bill by reduo the tariff from 25 to 15 percent which representative Berry aptly said merely changed the crime petfcjrlarce ni- pfrdprgranrlto nIH1 iifmtifiR its operation to s r two years which was an acknowl edgement that the whole prinoi pIe of the bill was a wrong one and then they could not gt 6 the votes needed to pass it without re sorting to every known form of political bulldozing and cajolery Had the Republicans of the House voted their real sentiments the bill would have been defeated by more than a twothirds vote in stead of being passed by a vote of 172 to 161 The eonstitutiomil question involved in this bill will not down In will be heard when the bill is taken up in the Senate The Horse Cave Times elutes that the citizens of Adair county met and indorsed the action of Gov Taylor This is not correct if intended to convey tho impres sion that said meeting represented the prevailing opinion of the citizens of this county A small gathering of Republicans met slid passed a few flimsy resolutions of that nature but they dot voice the sentiment of the

nineteenth conlur is nothing less than the discovery on a lonely island in Hudson bay of a lost tribe of Eski mosa community which has been without intercourse with other representatives of the human species for centuries and whose members never saw a white man until a few months ago They are still in the stone age knowing no metals they grow no plants and their houses are built of the skulls of whales The home of this strange tribe is on Southampton island a piece of wa tergirt terra firma nearly as big as the state of Maine sitaatcdat the north end of Hudson Lay Apparent ly the people have dwell there ever since preColumbian time and Today they live and subsist in exactly the same way as they did then Having been isolated for so 10n311 period it is natural that they should exhibit many peculiarities A superb collection of utensils weapons of the chase and other objects made through the agency of Dr Franz Boas has been brought to New York in a whaling vessel and deposited in the Museum of Natural History The houses of skulls more properly described as huts arc built by put ting together the great jaws of right whales which are covered over with skins In the middle of this prim itive dwelling is an elevated place on which stands the inevitable stone lamp employed for lighting heating cookingmelting snow drying clothes and in certain arts It is nothing more than an open dish of whale oil or seal oil with a wickof dry moss soaked in fat The whale is the chief means of sub sistence of those strange people They use the whalebone in a variety of sur rising ways making even their cups and buckets of it by bending it into rounded shapes and sewingon the bottoms Many of their implements are of whalebone and from the same ftuff they manufacture tobogganlike tlcdg They make sledges with walrus tusks for runner and deer antlers for cross piece It would le hard to gnd hNeythebo bagsTheviduals about equally divided be tween the sexes Its members speak a dialect peculiar to themselves and quite unlike that employed by any other Eskimos A strait about 30 miles broad separates Southampton island from the western shore of Hud ion bay where there is a colony of Es limps and once in a very long while the strait freezes over This happened it is said 75 years ago and then a few hunters came over from the island to the mainlandwhere they were much surprised to encounter other human beings like them selves having doubtless peopleinexiitence This is now a tradition with the natives on the mainland who say that the strangers brought two sledges with them but went away again and never returned Neither before pox since has any news coinefrdwfnelt tribe until recently On Southampton island iKere fno soapstone which ine std mos elsewhere is the fartfrtfe nil
