treES of Eturia and L um It was a republic for o 800 years and governed by Consul elected every two years The citizens soon became divided into two classes patricians andplebeia ns former the higher class the latter the lower class Hence Irthis division gave to Rome con tinuous discord and the numerous enemies of Rome availed themselves of Empperwas in these struggles that the mans became celebrated for their valor and gained both repntation and powerbeing almost uni sally victorious over their ad saries They soon subdued Sic Carthage Spain Macedonia miser etc But ambition andt discord

plenty of consolation in in such splits for Republicans1 but we believe that the Democrats of that District will adjust their troubles in ample time to elect a Congressman and to do their whole duty

millions of votoa They Bjoul4 know that when all tho ro form elements are united as in this case their power is unoon querable Hole everysectloih of the coun try the Democratic ticket is re ceiving such hearty endorsement as to warrant the belief beyond a reasonable doubt that it will be elected It is going to be a Water lea for McKiiileyism Han aism and imperialism The people of this country believe that they are able to control their own financial interests without an alliance with England they believe that the Philippines should have the same treatment from our government as is given Cuba and they believe that this infernal stamp system for war purposes should be abel ished Thu issue of imperialism thrust forward by the Democrats is al ready worrying tho Republicans The making public ofa circular note sent to tho great powers by by this government defining its policy toward China was intend ed hy tho administration to counteract the charge of imperialism While nominally prepared to inform other governments of the policy of this government toward China that circular note was really prepared to try to convince the people of this country that the McKinley administration has no imperial designs against China and more of the same sort of stuff may be looked for Mr McKinley knows that the Chinese ques tion can wait but that the Presi dential question has get to be set tied in November The trouble in China is and it is now firmly believed tha all foreigners have been killed by the Boxers The great powers are uniting and sending thousands of soldiers to the celestial Empire which will result in many bloody lifeeWo believe in protecting our citi Zens wherever found when unduly imposed upon by the authority or sanction of any government but in this case WO are inclined to be lieve that the Powers especially tho European governments have an eye on the breaking up of Chi na and a division of the same and in the present trouble have found ample excuse for waging a war to that end It was only two or three years ago that thogreat Powers allowed Turkey to butcher and murder the Armenians with out any interference but tho division of Turkey had not been con templated nor was it desired The Republican leaders have de cided that they willnot use more than three hours in holding their convention iur have a platform containing more thtm four linesud then well not half of their voters will know any thing about it It will be too long for many of them to read and too in definite for many of them to un derstau lj y may cry out that thf re o civil liberty but they wUJnro forced to say whether- or uotney endose assassination- Mr Yerkes may believe that his fourlino platform will not get him in but out or trouble in the fight for the Governorship of Ken tucky but hewill find that he must face the music Tho Repub lican party is firmly committed to tho policy pursued by Taylor In their last convention they indors ed him and unless some retraction is made in the threehour convention the party and Yerkes stand indorsing Taylor in driving our Legislature from its hall for political profit for organizing the State soldiery on partisan grounds for political purposes for assem bliug at Frankfort the roughest element of the State to intimidate and to murder for preventing search to be made to detect the assassin for aiding in the flight of criminals and for every act that Taylor did Mr Yerkes will be asked if he indorses such actions and such men and he will find that the wages of political sin and deception will bringppolitical death

resented met at the courthouse last Monday for the purpose o appointing delegates to the Lex ington Convention which meets tomorrow to nominate a candi date for Governor Chas S Harris County Chair man called the convention to br der and Col E Butler was elected permanent Chairman and 0 W Bryant Secretary- On motion the Chair appoin- ed the following named gentleman as a committee on resolutions Rollin Hurt J R Wade PlIBridgewater Jas Garnett Jr MontIgomery and reported the following which were unanimously adopted Resolved 1 That we approv- of the call of this convention- 2d That we approve Mid en dorse the principles enunciated in the platform adopted by the Na tional Convention of the Democratic party held at Kansas Cityi Mo on the 4th day of July 1000 and wo heartily ratify the nomi nations of said convention y Wo condemn and denounce tho assassination of the late Wil liam Goebel as the result of a political conspiracy as one of the goatest crimes ever perpetrated against the laws and moral principles of a free people as well as a crime against our free form of government and as citizens of a common country hoping for the perpetuity of its institutions w regret that our fellowcitizens of the Republican party should per mit themselves through blind party zeal and prejudice to con done the crime of murder thu perpetrated and to make themselves the defenders of and sympathizers with the perpetrators of said crime For the sake of the laws and a correct moral public opinion and a healthy public con science we regret that the Repub endorste as a correct political principle If members of said party had have 1S1sistingconspirators who perpetrated said crime as they have shown in defending and protecting those accused there would now be no doubt of the identity of said criminals in the minds ofall honest people and their just punishment for undoubted guilt would have been a salutary lesson and example productive of good for all time to come For oa part we denounce andcondemn the doctrine that murder is a po litical question and demand that those accused of the murder of William Goebel be tried as any other persons accused of any oth er crimes by the laws of the coun try and that they be dealt with according to the demands of law and justice If the evidence is conclusive of their guilt they should be punished as any other murders if the evidence fails to show such guilt then they should be acquitted We denounce this brutal crime and the other out rages againstlaw government per petrated nt our seat of government during last winter to be the di rect and inevitable fruit of the teachings of the press and public speakers opposed to the Democracy during the campaign of 1899i when this press and many of these speakers continually threatened approved instigated and advised civil war armed resistance and lynch law in the event they were not successful at the polls All ofwhich we deplore as much as condemn as being ruinous to the good morals lawabiding habits and healthy public conscience of the country as well as detrimental to its material interests 4th We denounce the hypocrisy and false pretense of the Re publican party in prating about civil liberty in the face of the RepublicanGovernor taken an oath to uphold the law contrary to the direct mandate of the law and against the public peace called to the polls on election day soldiers armed with rifles and Catling guns and in the face of the further fact that another late chosen representative of the sentiments and aspirations of that party whb is now a fugitive forIage nor manhood nor reepeot sufficient for his party friends toJLs g V compel him to face in viola tion of all law and all the principles and safeguards of clvll lib erty by military force dispersed the legislature the free representatives of the people and chased them In th likefcontrary to the constitution and laws suspending the writ of habeas corpus the highest guarantee of civil liberty known to the laws of a free country He likewise by military tor c denied and prevented the process of civil tribunals of justice denied and prevented the civil office- rthe right to execute their sworn du turs in the protection of life and ap impristrant than the bayonet of his soldiers and freely pardoned all accused of crimes from murder to carrying concealed who were friendly to him and assisting him in his tyranny and anarchy He and those assisting him likewise collected at the scat of government an armed mob of desper adoes nnd lawless men to wrrorlzeand reproeves se s and Ia ringmeuts of the civil of thj w ipleire without aparalell f the an Is nf our history and hay thnlr cu iter arts only In the bloody insurrectionary and halt civilized coun tries of South America The first mentioned Republican Governor previous to these things on another occa jion in a time of profound peace surrounded the Legislative halls with sol diers to terrorize the members into submission to hti party advantage These things demonstrate that tb Republican party oC Kentucky Is Incapable of giving a jest and peaceable administration of State government 5th We denounce the pretensions of the Republican party toward favor ing the repeal or modification of the present election law or for honest ere tin methods hypocritical cancan false pretense During the session ofa dayeno or attempted to procure the passage of any legislation either to repeal change or modify said law nether di they give their assistance by their Democratisc were rep and to modify it During the cam paign ofJLSOO demanding with their mouths honest election methods they used the military to force persons into the election booths who were not au thorized by law to be there they used mandamus proceedings to compel elcc floe officers to sign false returns of re suits and armed mobs a other places to intimidate and terrlf toImany y violated the constitutional provision requiring a secret ballot by providing for use transparent ballots in orde that the forces of fraud and corruption might perpetrate their work 1 is still fresh in the memory of the pea pie the unlawful and unfair appoint ment of election officers in this State under the previous election law by Republican county judges in the year 1896 in which in the county of Jefferson there were forty precincts at which no supporter of Mr Bryan was an election officer and the same wa the case in various other counties and sr0 many e right of suffrage and so falsifying th returns that the electoral vote of the State was counted for Major McKin Icy while to the knowledge of all un biased persons a majority of the voters of the State were for and did vote for Mr Bryan 6 Believing as we have ever done in a free election and an honest count of the votes an election untrammelled and unterrified by mlllltary force and a suffrage uncorrupted by the money of corporations and the rich we favor an amendment to the present consti tution of the State so changing it that we may again vote other than by secret official ballot and then a return to our anclen system of viva voce sys tem of voting with such restrictions upon its method and exercise as will insure a fair orderly and peaceabl- election and an honest count of the vote cast In our opinion this will be the most available method of securing the above ends and removing the trust of the people of the results of th elections by secret official ballot Pending this amendment however we favor such amendments to the present election law as will entitle each political party bylaw to representlon upon the election boards and each political party and all independent candidates- to representation in the way of inspectors and challengers in the election
