People FAIR ELECTIONS ARE WANTED Frankfort Ky Aug 2SSpec ialGov Beckhams message to the General Assembly was sent to that body this afternoon and was as follows Gentlemen of the Senate and House o f Represenatives You have been assembled here in ex- traordinarY session for the single purpose of amending th e election laws of the State and I shall undertake to state briefly the reasons why I believe the occaSIOn to be ex traordinary and why I have called you in session here at this time Section SO of the Constitution of Kentucky reads as follows He may on extraordinary occa sions convene the General Assem bly at the seat of Government or at a different place if that should have become dangerous from an enemy or from contagions disease In case of disagreement between the two houses with respect to the time of adjournment he may adjourn them to such time as he may think proper not exceeding four months When he shall convene the General Assembly it shall be by proclamation stating the sub jects to be considered and no other shall be considered- I consider that some changes in our election laws at the present time would be productive ofmuch gocd and would remove some of the bitterness and dissatisfaction that now exist among our people The present laws on the subject are undoubtedly distasteful to aI largo number of people in the State and their amendment is earnestly desired by all thosa who want to relieve as much as possible the friction and illfeeling engendered by hostile political fact tions An exciting and important political contest in the State is about to begin and all good citi zeus desire to sea that contest conducted in as orderly and peaceable manner as possible and it is not only essential that the laws controlling the election should be fair but every honest citizen whatever may be his political faith should believe them to be fair A law to satisfactory must not only bo good but mustljc gesfrilly cons i erod SJ by a large majority of the people I do not believe the pres out law in its operation to lluuI been unfair or uujust and I know it to have boon pascd with thoc earnest and honest intention to remedy the evils which rxisti dun the system which it supplant ed It was a great improvement upon that system hut by reason of strong prejudice against it many people have been led to believe that thin change was a mistake and the late n bad one This prejudice against it whether reasonable or not ia sufficient to justify your consideration and warreut you to take some action in securing a moro silisfactory law I know it your wish as well as mine that theelection in this Stato this fnllI shall UEO fair so just so honorable that no citizen in the CJiromvoalth shall hIt v o cause to complain as to tho law and its ad ministration arid thht whatever the result every fairminded tit izen whether ho sides with thoI victor or the vniuiufoiied eau say that the verdict of tho people has been properly recorded and the victory awarded ho liitttwhodri tserVes t Letiis htteH6dolii JaVi if pdssible I willglailJydoopQr J i t lit 5 ate with you in you effrots to so cure it I have not called you rihere to legislate on this suject wit tho idea that n fair election wonl Itt be helduder the prep eut law fur I am firmly convinced that if the law iu its operation has been unfair or unjust to any one it ha been so to those who were charged with being its beneficiaries who gained nothing by any unjust ma nipulation of the lawbut who lost many thousands of votes by reason of the violent prejudice against it However this opposition exists and you should deal with it frank ly and considerately as I feel con fident that you will Imaginary ills whether political or physical should be treated as well as real ones Your task in this matter is a difficult one You can not sat isfy every body- I do not desire to suggest in de tail any law for you consideration I have confidence in your judg ment and wisdom and I believe that you will earnestly and patri otically set to work to frame a law in appearence as well as in fact so fair and so just to all parties that no honest citizen can find fault with it I sincerely trust gentlemen that your lobora here in this effort to pass a law as nonpartisan in character as it is possible to make it may be crowned with success and that when you return to your home every member of your honora ble body may be confident in the belief that the election of this fall will be just to all parties and candidates If you can do this and thereby remove much pf this ill feeling among our people your ac tion will commend you to the praise and gratitude of tho good citizens of the commonwealth- I hope your stay here in the capitalcity may not only be beneficial to the interests of the State but also pleasant and agreeable to yourselves Very respectfully- J C W BECKHAM Governor- of Kentucky There is more Catarrh in this sect ion of the country than all other

majontygood andsufficient The Democracy of Russell coun ty is alive Last Monday Hon J Bryan Stone who supported John Young Brown last year spoke for Bryan and Beckham making a very telling speech The crowd was large and paid strict atten tion to the speaker as ho presented an unanswerable argument in fav or of the Democratic candidate for President and for Governor of Kentucky The Democratic Committee of Adair county met in their room in Columbia last Monday and named Messrs R M Hurt M Cravens and N M Tutt as a campaign committee the former to act as Chairman Active work of organ izing the county is now on and the committee is ready to advise with any and everybody who is interested in the success of the Democratic ticket Documents to the commit tee should be addressed to M Cra vens Secretary John L Powers who conspired with his brother Caleb and others to have Senator Goebel mur dered was at his home in Knox county last week He was accom panied by ten wellarmed men The County Judge and County Clurk were notified of Johns pres ence and they went out and took his bond as school Superintendent of Knox county He will make a splendidcounty official In fact ho is a real nice manhe is a brother of Calebs In days that are pastit is 3aid when the latters name was mentioned in Knox county mothers drew a httlo closer to their daughters The News advertised in last weeks issue that Hon Geo E Stone would address the democrat of this county last Monday This announcement was made by orders from the Campaign Com mittee Wo are informed that the reason that Mr Stone failed to fill this appointment was due to t ho sickness of his wife Republicans may find a little consolation in his failing to meet the appointment and Democrats were disap pointed but it was no fault of ours and none of Mr Stones as circumstances over which he had no control was his only preventa the By and by the true gospel of pure and unadulterated Democracy will bo preached in our court house and Mr Stone will not be backward in doing his part of it The attempt made by the Republican sheets of this State to bring into disfavor the amendment of the election law is 110 more than we expected In their effort to ridicule the position of tho Demo crats who endorse the law yet favor its modification they seek to make such capital as they trust will disturb the Democrats who did not support Mr Goebel last year In this they will fail for the Democrats who voted for Brown did not do so to please Republicans but to do their duty as they saw it to enjoy a clear con Science so now they will not follow the dictates of Republicans Tho demands made by the Demo crats to amend the law is merely no more nor no less a concession to the minority part of the Democratic party It is intended to restore harmony on a basis honor sable and broad enough for ovary Democrat to stand It is not strategy or a cunningly devised way to catch votesrt is not sub verting principle to meet political necessity butts plain honest admission that that the minority has rights as sacred as the majority j that no other avenue is open to a peaceful settlement of the dif ferences caused byone election law It will soon be stripped of its most objectionable features and we have no fear that any Democrat will disapprove but we expect the Republicans to keep up their howl p I r Last week we fired our political gun at thg whole shooting match of assassination defenders and beyond a doubt a slug of truth must have hit the editor of the Colum bia Spectator Indeed he seems to be seriously hurtand with all his vim he comes to the defense of Caleb Powers indicted tried and found guilty of accessory to the murder of Mr Gobel He asserts that Powers was not connected with the crime that the Judge expounded the law in a partisan manner and that the witnesses swore falsely We have no doubt of the guilt of Powers j no doubt about the guilt of severalothers who will yet tbe forced to answer for this vile and dastardly and cowardly murder Our party prejudice has never yet been so strong as to prompt us to endorse any form of violence to advance the interests of our party and should that time ever come when The News will be expected to em ploy its energies and what little talent ic possesses in the defense of a hellish murder in order to stay within our party fold wo openly assert now to be retained in the memory of its many read ers that we will not do it Wo have no reason to condone tho act of an assassin j we have no grievance against a political enemy that would prompt us for a moment to want an innocent man to suffer We believe that justice should be meted out to every man connect ed with the murder of Mr Goebel whether he lives in a magnificent manson or a mountain hovel j whether he stands at the head of his party or merely follows the edicts of his leaders whether he be a man in high official position orasengdigger in the Black moun tain It is not a question with us whether a man be a Republican or a Democrat j whether it be our party or our foe if human life has been taken by an individual or a band of conspirators we are frank to say let justice be meted out let not the guilty go free Con trary to the divine law He that shedeth mans blood by man shall his blood be shed now ac cepted to mean that the man or men who commit murder shall suffer for it through a legal proc ess the Republican papers of the State both small and large are seeking to annul for no other pur pose but to arouse public feeling keep up prejudice and hold their party solid to keep the well meaning uninformed part of their party from desertion In other words they regard it a party ne cessity to appeal to the prejudice of their readers to excite them to a support of their nominees They pose as organs of law and order j they say the man who murdered Mr Goebel should be hung They do not deny that a man friendly to Taylor did the shooting yet af ter all this every man who has been arrested they assert is inno cent Every man who has testifi ed against any of the accused is branded as a purjured scoundrel Their daily clamor is that the in nocent may suffer Whence comes this great desire to protect the in nocent Whence comes the de nand to liberate every man ac cused of the crime What prompts the wholesale abuse of our courts our juries and honorable men who state the truth under oath Why applaud the plea of Powers and clap hands while he curses every person who opposes him Why assert that he is innocent when he was caught fleeing under mask with a pardon from Taylor in his pocket and under the protection of Taylors troops since then tried and convicted before twelve competent men of mixed political views There is no answer save that of an endorse ment of the crime at heart The man who says that the murderer of Mr Goebel should be hung and seeks to block and obstruct every avenue that would lead to his detection his arrest and conviction is not a man who wishes the guilty punished If the Spectator does not endorse the murder if it wants the conspirators and murderers brought to justice then come out and say say BO and quit the sup port of Yerkes who it is be lieved would pardon every man arrested regardless of evidence Ye can not serve God and mammon If you oppose assassination then come and join your old party It stands for the same eternal truths that brought
