Is largely centered upon matters pertaining to the restoration of peace in the State and harmony in the party and surprisingly little interest comparatively appears to be manifested in the coming Senatorial election there is no complete political hiatus There are at hand the early evidences of a good healthy contest for the Senatorship spirited but free from bitterness and personal animosity In minor contestsalso there will be plenty of ginger Tbe next Legislature will be birougly Democratic aud will find work of much importance before it There will be the decennial reapportionment of Congressional judicial and Senatorial districts which the Constitution requires There will be the election of a United States Senator to succeed Deboe There willI be many measures of great moment such as a bill to create a new common school system and another to provide for a system of State highways in the rich but undeveloped mountain re glons The next Legislature will be a bus iness body said lion S J Shackle ford at Frankfort recently It willl deal little with politics and much with matters pertaining to the general wel fare of the State It ought to accom plish a good deal in the way of legisla tion to encourage rather than antago nize legitimate corporate enterprises It ought to make good and equitable laws for the people of the Blue Grass and the mountains and tbe Pennyrile It is the hope of the Democrats that men of the highest business and party standing may be induced to run in every district This next Legislature will not need politicians It ought to be composed of men of sound business sense and progressive ideas For years the true functions of the Legislature in Kentucky bave been much neglected Law making for the people of the State has been left undone Every thing has been subordinated to the exiginences of factional and partisan politics A good Legislature can inI 60 days put Kentucky in shape to catch up with the procession I believe that the personnel of the next Legislature and the disposition of party leaders from Gov Beckham down will tend to the accomplishment of this result For the Senatorshlp the name most prominently mentioned at present is that of exGovernor J B McCreary to whose efforts as campaign Chair man the recent Democratic victory in the State is largely due Governor McCreary Is a candidate and his canvass is practically begun Hon H E Goodnight whose party servlcesand personal qualifications entitle him to consideration Is said to be incapaci tated by illness from engaging in a political contest at present Capt W T Ellis of Owensboro who is un questionably Senatorial timber is not an aggressive politician He has gone to Congress several times always un der protest and has never declared himself a candidates for anything A few months since he was in favor of the election of Mr Goodnight but many Democrats in Western Kentucky especially since Goodnight seems to be out of the contest will support Ellis The younger Democrats of the Pennyrile particularly in the First Congressional District are solidly for lion Chas K Wheeler the present Congressman from the jPIrst The elevation of Beckham to the Govern torship

a he has made people pay some attention to him Washington Judge Pryor who sat 24 years on the Appellate bench and who is the youngest man of his years in the world is another Senatorial possibility though he declares he Is out of active politicsJudge Cantrill before whom the Goebel murder cases were tried has come to the front quite prominently in the Senatorial situation though he has not yet given his friends permission to announce his candidacy A strong sentiment in his favor exists In the populous counties of the Blue Grass It will not be surprising if he develops much strength in that section of the State There will be other entries before the big race is run and a wealth of material from which to make a choice will be offered It may be safely predicted that in the whole list there is not a man who will not favor a fair open contest abd cheerfully accept defeat if it shall be his portion There seems to be no interest whatever in the Senatorial contest among Republicans This condition is no doubt due to the fact that Deboe the august accident has succeeded in tying himself to the Republican num ination Among the Republican business men of the State there is a distinct feeling that it will be better to have the Democrats send a man of brains to the Senate than to have Deboe succeed himself How to Cure Croup Mr R Gray who lives near Amenia Duchess county N Y says

Pirates Who Pluck Their Victims As of Old A True Reformer Goes After a Most Iniquitous System In Funny Style HUMOROUS AND INTERESTINO Samuel L Clemens was at the office of the chief of the bureau of license in New York last week to make a formal complaint against a cabman whom he charged with extortion in insisting on the overcharge Mr Clemens succeed ed in securing the suspension of the cabmans license Mr Clemens said that on the night of November the 20th Katie Leary a maid working for his wife came from the Grand Central Station to Mr Clemens home No 14 West Tenth St in a cab The driver of the cab Wm Beck asked 8150 and then 9125 but Mr Clemens who was sent fur refused to give it to him and finally paid him 31 Beck acknowledged that he cbarg ed an exhorbitant fee and said that he was in the wrong A mac named Winston who said he represented the Public Hack Owners Union appealed for leniency for Beck Well Mr Winston said we at knowledge that tbe driver did wrong but you must know that if we had two or three fares an hour we would make a great deal of money but we do not have that many Wo stand on the curb for hours at a tim i trying to get fares and It is natural that when we de get them we try to make them pay for some of the time We have waited ObI you do do you shouted Mr Clemens half riking from his seat and pointing an accusing finger at the hack owner Why you ought to be asham ed to make such a confession either in public or in private A pirate could make the same defense Mr Roche told Mr Clemens that he would suspend the license of Beck and would keep the record of thecase in his possession until he had looked it over and would then notify Mr ClemI en if anything else was dune in the matterMark Twain is a reformer as well as a humorist and In this little episode he has touched the root of a serious eviland indeed which is by no means confined to theiiack business In this case tbe hackman s justification for an exorbitant fee is that he has to put in so much time waiting for business that when he dues get a customer he has to charge some thing extra to make up for the previous loss of business The same principle is followed by needy lawyers when the conditions are favor able and when the fee is contingent and no fixed fee has been agreed on Doctors too have been known to charge enormous fees for attending fa mous or very wealthy persons The principle is a most iniquitous one and we are glad that Mark Twain has pointed it out so clearly The hackman in this instance treated the maid who rode with him as an enemy Be made her pay for the failure of otb er persons to give him a job Be pun ished her in short for patronizing him The lawyer who pursues a similar course Is simply a pirate Under his system the client is invited to come Inland suitor to compensate him for the business he hasnt got to sit still and be bled fur the privilege of giving him- a care There ought to be Hume way 1 to stop this happy business But it is not confined to individuals Some ot the trusts are run ou this principle I na somewhat different guise On account of the organization of the beef trust the price of beefhas been raised about 16 per cent Now there is no excuse fur this and therea soL is tba the trust has raised the price because it can Ther arketbas nothing todc with it The trust con trol the product and ith ittthe end on it Last the

beginning the ninety days of legisla tive work with which its life will ter minate should hava attracted to Wash ington a vast horde of lobbyists attor neys secret agents of monopoly cor porations and others whose object it is to influence for gain the making of laws in the national capital Although this is a closing session of Congress it comes at a time when a President has just been reelected to succeed himself thus receiving an in dorsement of his policies which shall embolden him to push them to their extremest length Mr McKinleys policies dictated by Mark Hanna in the interests of the trusts are such as open up a vast field for lobbyists and monopoly agents Theres to be a lot of syndicate legislation contract letting and creating of places for hungry officeseekers The time to get your influence at work is right now It is safe to say therefore that all the class interests which are in line for benefit under the sway of commercial ized politics will be generously repre sented in Washington from now until the holidays The American people will in all likelihood be the most inadequately represented element This is because the Republican party is in power pledged to do the

discussion of the question of coinage for the Philippine Islands and as a result it is probable that the Secretary of War will request a hearing on the omznittees business of the islands is transact ed in Mexican dollars and army commissaries and others supplied with United States money are at times greatly embarrassed in mak ing purchases from the Filippinos by the fact that knowing nothing of our money or its value the lat ter often refuse to accept it The proposition which seems to have met with favor by the Administra tion is to purchase silver bullion at the present market price and coin it into distinctive dollars having a gold value of about fifty cents each These dollars proba bly will contain a little less silver than the present standard dollars The scheme has not yet been work ed out in all of its details but as there is at present a Government coinage mint in Manila it is hop ed that by the early action of Con gress the new coins may be put in to circulation before a great while possibly before the winter is over The Republican leaders are on their knees to the brewers begging to be let off with a small reduction in the tax on beer instead of the entire war tax as demanded by the brewers A 11 this has been brought about in a week A week ago the Republican members of the Ways and Means committee refused to even consider a reduc tion in the beer tax Since then Representative Babcock who was chairman of the Republican Con gressional Committee and knew all about campaign contributions and promises has succeded Dolli ver of Iowa who has gone to the Senate as a member of the Ways and Means Committee and has told the Republican members a few things as Mr Hanna has al so done Now it is no longer a question of whether there will be a reduction of the beer tax but of how small a reduction the brew ers can be cajoled into accepting The bill as reported from the Ways and Means Committee makes a re duction of 40 cents a barrol in the beer tax but it not yet certain that the brews will accept that Students of human nature as exhibited in the political world are trying to reconcile Mr Mc Kinleys words with his acts In the closing paragraph of his mes sage were words which read like a patriotic warning to Congress not to be led into making extravagant appropriations just because there was a lot of money in the Treasury and now Mr McKinley is using all his power to drive objecting Republican Senators into the sup port of one of the most extrava gant appropriations ever before Congressthat for ship subsidies which will put millions into the pockets

outlining atth dawn of ainevr ceutury the policy of a great Government which had hut jnafc hen linni when the pre q ant century began The message recites facts which justify national pride It offers indisputable proof of the most marvelous national growth known to the worlds history It necessa lriIy shows that this Government i nov stands in the front rank of the worlds greatest Powers Government that dosicalexe cises the Btrougest singleinfluence in the settlement of all interna tional questions of the first magnitude It is perhaps ineivatable that great and sudden dangers to the American spirit a n d the tru American policy should have been brought into being by this Govern moats recent tremendous increase of power and prestige It may b taken as similarly logical that Mr McKinley standing for the party most susceptible to the glamour ofF the new prospect of worldwide territorialacquisition created by the results of the war with Spain for the liberating of Cuba should in his message advocate a foreign peatywhich is more or less of a surrender to the sudden tempta tion It is also logical that the Pres dent should have made no effec tive utterance in opposition to the omiuqus growth of the trust evil a growth for which his party 5 friendliness towards the trusts is so largely responsible The Presidents message is aS confession that in so far as iti possible to Mr McKinley and the Republican party the Govern meut is to be administered on lines of imperialism and of classprivi lege that are foreign to the spirit 1of its founders Politically speak ing Mr McKinley has good war rant for the tone of his message His campaign for reelection was necessarily made on these issues the Democratic assault on the trusts and imperialism being exceptionally fierce The people at the polls supported McKinley in this conflict of opinion All that now remains to be seen is whether or not the people beat knew what was good for them selves and for the country when they extended the McKinley lease J of power for four years more The President himself is faithful in his message to those things fur which he stood in the campaign u which ended in his reeleotijn the
