that our young Govt ernor has acted without proper consideration in granting pardon to the gamblerAlvey recently convicted in the city of Louisville Quite a commotion has been raised between the Executive and the judicial branches of our State over the trial anti pardon of the afores said gambler Gov Beckham re cites his various reasons for grant ing pardon chief of which he as sorts persecution and also intilmates that political prejudice was at the bottom of said persecution Judge Barker and Commonwealths Attorney Kiucaids reply to the p Governors allegation in language unmistakable and in terms that are severe Asa lover of peace and later ns a friend to the Gov onion and trusting that political prejudices would subside j that the guilty should be punished for crime we are forced to say that the Governor has in our judgment acted hastily in ge ranting pardou to Alveyro can not givo the details of the case but after a thorough of investigation from newspaper reportt considering thfttthoiGov 5 i t ernor admits Alveys guilt we cannot see any reasons to justify a pardon It may be that the court worked hard to bring about the conviction j that immunity was promised to his associates j that others guilty of the same offense were liberated in order to convict Alvey but all this does not justify the pardon If gambling is sup pressed conviction is necessary and conviction is useless if pardons are ready If Alvey was guilty hbofis trial and conviction was not per secution it was rigid justice Gov Beckham holds the gavel of State he is the chief ruler of all the people regardless of creeds faiths or prejudices and in this trying period of calming the waves should guard well his offi cial conduct We find no pleasure in criticising his official acts but as we are ever ready to endorse Iehim for commendable acts we feel teit our plain duty to comdemn that which we can not endorse The pardoning power is often abused and we are lothe to believe that courts in any State will seek to convict the innocent for any reason After all no man is perfect and while the young Governor has made a serious mistake in his eai ly official life we trust that it wi prove a blessing to him in so far as to warn him of the dangers of hasty official acts of conviction without a proper hearing of both sides and of attaching suspicions against the courts of our Stat- Since the above pardon was gran beern has Eac the death of Miss Cloyd at London antwere most vo luminous ever filed in the Executive office In this act is evidence that the Governor seeks to do h duty regardless of pressure The Army Appropriation Bi with the Philippine and Cuban Amendments attached was made signnturetwe give the Philippian Amendment and by careful reading you will observ that McKinley is not only Presi dent but Zar of all the Philippines So much power has never before been given to a President and no king lives in this ago clothed with so much authority He may bet good and great man he may meat well and he may do righteously wsth those people but it is a tre mendous gift of power and should not be given to any man This act shows conclusively that our government is surrendering the susrtains a True Republic and marching at a rapid gait to Monarch iul government That the present generation will bow to the edicts of a Monarch is not our opinion but our posterity will share the evils of centralized power under Monarchial Government unless u great change takes place in the near future The situation is alarming when considered from the standpoint that all people

ToTaBsrrheIQr- Recently various plans for thf taxing of incorrigible bachelor haca h rn suggested but the inHhd rtrfind a bill before the Connecticut legislature is unique Instead of an annual tax upon the single man the bill pro vides that bachelors may be allowed to enjoy life free from taxation so long as they like but that if they seek to marry after living single forty years they must pay a fine of 3100 to the State Just what object the legisla tors propose to serve by allowing the men of Connecticut to roam about in hardened bachelorhood untaxed and yet threatening to fine them if they marry after forty is not apparent If a man is bent on getting married 8100 is hardly a restraining influence while a man not disposed marry atull will pay nothing whatever for his lifelong freedom If taxation is to have any effect on bachelorhood apparently it would be wiser to impose the tax be tween the susceptible years of 21 and 40 removing it thereafter on the ground that the taxed person has paid for the right of bachelorhood In viewing of the difficulties would seem that the statesmen who are hand ling this burning problem would do better to waive the matter of finesand seek merely to encourage marriage directly by the systematic pronmiitir of moonlight picnics md other fll functions which are known to be salu tary in their effect on the bachelor evil Mark Twain to
