of Pennsylvania had the floorF and Mr Richardson of TonneseeI who is the Democratic leader oft the House took some part in the 1t discussion of a question We then stoned over to the great Library

half million dollars hasC over 900000 volumes in it Wei then took a street car ride over the city taking in the Pension Department and all other depart meat buildings including the White House but we

MrBromwell a Republican Congressman from Ohio who favors the policy advocated by Mc in December said in the If the President of the United States since his message Congress in December has obtained

additional information to us that we should not bo dependent upon conversations and interviews of individual members of this House with the Chief Executive for the information upon which we as a legislative body are to act But Mr McKinley hast not done this He has simily made it plain that he has no will of his own that instead of com pelling Congress to a just discharge of their legislative powers ho is ready to declare his conviction of duty to Congress and then sign a bill utterly opposed to the course which ho advised 1 in short that ho is the nerveless creature of the syndicate which

shop to the i end of the lane He should r 9 write a book There are millions in it A Washington correspondent states that it is conceded now on allsides that the Republicans in Congress as well as the Adminis tration are in a bad fix over the Porto Rico tariff question it mat rtersnot what they may do Two weeks ago we made the statement upon what we thought was reliable information that Hon M Rey Yarberry would have the naming of the census enumer atom for Adair county The statement did not pan out correct ly Mr Yarberry informs U3 that 1 he had no voice in naming the J enumerators and at his request this statement is made A report was circulated last week without authority that warrants had been issued for exGov Bradley and Gen Collier charging thorn with aiding in the plans to murder Gov Goebel Did they disguise themselves and put out for the mountains No They wero ready to surrender knowing that they were innocent How differently did Powers and Davis J act II The Louisville News an ardent Republican sheet has quit Taylo- and among other things it says in a leading editorial is the follow ing His calling out the troops to surround the executive building after Goebel was shot preventing the officers from hunting the as sassin was a blunder criminal in its stupidity and giving his one I mien occtffiiou to charge that he s tt v sin sympathy with the mur ddr ts r A j We can not see any special good II1yrious charges made by the friends of either side in tho present political muddle We have sought toI avoid conflicts bya mild express on ofhouest that opinions hoped to see a peaceful solution and settlement but the more conservatism shown by Democrats and the more they have advised the peo plo to bo orderly and to keep with in the law the ranker and fiercer have been the charges made liy the antiDemocratic combination We want it plainly understood that we do not indorse lawlessness that we want to see this trouble adjusted on a peaceful and legal basis We believe that the laws should he obeyed and that every man and every party is entitled to what the laws allow him regardless of his political The man or set of men who say that the Democrats had no legs right to contest are nullifying the laws and constitution of our State They had such a right a constiUi tionly right and through all their proceedings they have kept within the laws while the most abusive policy has been pursued by their opponents a policy that sought to control by the use of State soldiers the power of money threatening demonstrations of the rougher ele ment resulting the murder o the chief figure in the contest We hear the feeble remark as it comes from organs of the wreck and ruin partys press that the assassination of Mr Gobel should not be countenanced that the con spiratora and the assassin shoal be dealt with according to law Taylor himself said that he re gretted it and even offered 500 reward for the arrest and conviction of the murderer Republicans throughout the State claim to have no sympathy for the murderer yet these same papers and this same Taylor are doing all within their power to keep at fever heat the prejudices of the people and to work up public sentiment and sym pathy in his behalf That they have succeeded in keeping the Tay lor element in line cannot be denied and it seems that they mean to precipitate war or their demands must be conceded We canno reconcile the statements of the Republicans who say that they want the conspirators and assassins of Mr Goebel brought to justice and indorse Taylor in his acts To our mind this is impossible for Taylor has done nothing to have the as sassin detected but to the contra ry he seeks to turn loose every man who has been arrested on the charge of being with the foulest murder that ever hap pened within our State The ac cusation made tha the 100000 reward will convict the innocent is not worth considering The fearful thought that it will bring the guilty to justice and that there will be more than a score of them seems to us to be the underlying reasons for the objections so freely offered against the reward Now if the Republicans indorse the assemblying of a large force of thre purpose of intimidating the Legis lature if they indorse Taylor in placing a heavey guard of soldiers around the executive building in a few moments after Mr Goebel had been shot and who refused to admit the officers of the law to en ter said building in search of the assassin that was supposed to be in said building and from which the fatal shbtcamet if they taddifee f I Clothing Believing that the people are be coming tired of paying from 5 to 10 dollars more for a madeto order suit We have bought di rect from manufacturers a large stock of fine custom made suits and odd pants and can now give you a perfect fit of firstclass goods at a saving IIIf 5 to 7 on the snit See our stock before you buy your spring suit Taylor in driving our Legislators theIno purpose as we believe than to prevent a decision- of the contest kuowning that Mr Goebel could not survive the work of the assassin if they indorse his granting pardons to the two toughs from his own county charged with disorderly conduct and carrying deadly weapons if they indorse Taylor in issuing pardons to Pow ers and Davis before they had been- I arrested when they were charged with being connected with the murder of Mr Goebel and when fleeing from the authorities under disguise and in the care of Taylors soldiers if they indorse Taylors wholesale accusation of injustice to our courts then it is clear to our minds that consistency and hones ty of expression should demand an endorsement of the assassination anarchy andIWe do any cern is felt by the Republican leaders for law and order If they can gain their point by riots we believe the riots will come We do 110 not believe that they want the conspirators arrested Taylor seems to bo doing all within his power to keep the assassin in dark and how any man desires that red handed murders be turned loose to- go unpunished is strange even powf When the work of an assassin is indorsed by any considerable num ber then it is time for a larm I Republicans want the murders caught then they should assist maBgtding an effort If Taylor wants the murderers and conspirators to face justice he should not seek to inter cept every effort to get the guilty by issuing pardons to those charged with connection with the crime We the whole plot to to berevealed and all tho gang meet justice Democrats do not want any innocent man to sufferr they want the guilty Democrats do not want more than the laws of our State will permit in the settle ment of this trouble They wuu their rights and no more apt ful for common carriers to transport free bodies of men beut on intimidating State or other officials Times have changed since the days of Stevenson and Leslie They were Governors and men of the highest character But when such lights pass from the active walks of life new men appear upo the scene and disgrace the posi tion once filled by them Imag ine if you please ExGovernor Les lie the Courts of Ken tucky Where would a man land were he to refuse to obey an order from his court were he upon the bench We said there had been a change The Larne County Herald writes thusly of the pres ent situation The time was when it was an extremely rare oc currence for a Governor to grant a pardon to a man before conviction It was only a few weeks that it was considered treasonable ko make the prediction that Gov Taylor would grant a pardon to the men accused of the assassins ton of Gov Goebel wore they ar rested But now it ia a feat that Taylor not only issued pardons the accused before trial but evb bfefore they were arrested In the ight 6f this taatiit
