Elected Frankfort Ky Jan 14 James B McCreary was today elected United States Senator from Kentucky to suc ceed W J Deboe whom he will all rr ceed In less tban two months The two houses of the General Assembly in separate session stopped all other busi ness on the stroke of 12 today and took a ballot for Senator In the Senate the vote stood 23 for McCreary 11 for Deboe and 1for jx Gov Bradley The vote for Bradley was cast by Senator W H Cox of Ma soa county nthe House the vote stood 74 for McCreary and 24 for De boe Having received a majority ofall the votes cast in each bouse Mr McCreary Is the duly elected Senator as the Constitution provides that where a candidate receives a m ij rltyof the votes in each separately it is not necessary to take a joint ballot But as precaution the formality of another vote in separate housES will be observed againnext Tuesday on account of the fact that the Constitution Is not clear as to which Tuesday is the one intended for the election Mr McCreary Is in the city but he did notappearat the Statehouse today After next Tuesday Gov Beckham will issue his certificate of erection JTbe ComultiteeS When the Legislature appropriated a hundred thousand dollars to be used It necessary to apprehend and bring to justice the murderers of Wm Goebel many papers cried shame and assumed that the money would at once be squandered After seeing the names of the committee and especially that of Col WMMoore with whom we are well acquainted wehad no fears of such a result Later we learned that the other members of the committee were made out of the same kind of material as Cool Moore and we were sure therewould be no waste of money Recently the committee met and cer tain detectives came forward and de manded the reward for the conviction otYouLsey1I0h no said the com mittee we paid your expenses and 8 a day for your work and you cannot claim the reward and collect wages fur the time you were earning the reward If you really discovered the guilty parties it was while you were working for the State and the State bought your time and paid for it and the results of your labor belong to the State Of course the boys felt sore but the peo

the Secretary of State and those two only when Senator Goebel was shot has all the marks of unauth cnticity For Youtsey to say that the- onlymeq present were two men who have since died would be to bring his word into prompt discredit and his testimony would be worth nothing Besides fife people of Breckinrldge county stand ready toprove that when Mr Goebel was shot Burton the Sher iff was lying

t J Worth Considering That portion of Governor Beckhams message welch he refers to the good feeling teat now exists between people of different political parties is worthy of especial thought That a full under standing may be bad of his effort to bribg together the citizens of Ken tucky for commercial advancement and to do away with the bitterness that the heated and unfortunate po litical contests of the past few years have been productive We produce that portion of the message The dark cloud ut internal dissen slons that huqgoy r uVtwo years ago in the unhappy differences then exist ing has disappeared and given way to the sunshine of a better and more rational feeling The unfortunate bitterness of that period caused by extraordinary political conditions is fast disappearing and our people fully realize the superior advantages of di verting their time and attention to tbelndustrial progress of the State rather than to the activities of heated political controversies and contests notwithstanding the many mlsrepre- sentatlonsandslandersuttered by out siders concerning the conditions in the State and the frequent publications of fajse and Injurious articles in sensational journals whose regard fqr truth is subordinate to their desire for romance itjs nevertheless a fact that the supremacy of law In Kentucky today issuch as to give every citizen as perfect a guaranty or prq ectiop of life liberty or property as can be found in anyState of the Uuion We have suffered much by these false and ex agera ted reports butit Is now happily within our power to give absolute as surance to all that a condition of peace and respect for the law exist from one end of the State to th9 other la the mountains of Kentucky whose people have been the objects of much unmerited abuse and have been charg ed with lawlessness and crime you will find a most favorable condition ot affairs The public officials there are doing their utmost to enforce the law and the people beginning to realize the vast riches locked in their mountains are offering every opportunity and inducement for the investment of capitol and the opening up of this un explored field of natural wealth There is no reason why it should not be done yndwe may confidently look forward to a wonderful advancement in that part of the State in the next few years I am sure that it is your desire to encourage this spirit every where as far it Is possible to dp so by legislation and while in framing laws to carefully guard the interests of the people as a whole at the same time to show a spirit of liberality and fairness that will aid in the develop ment of the resources of the State With the limitation placed by the Constitution upon the length of your session it fortunate that the circum stances are such as to enable oq to give your entire time to the considera tion of matters that affect the substantial and business Interests of the CommonwealthThe in the weUi chosen language is well calculated to inspire in the legislators a thorough understanding that the time has come for them to leave off heated and Un wise political discussion and proceed in the work advancing the Interests of the State upon a higher plane of actionIt to the credit of the Governor and to the advantage of aU Kentucky cans that such a feeling Is thus express ed by the executive it is a note of warning to the untutored youngsters and a tocsin of great joy to the busi ness people who bear much of the burden of taxation Politics Is a good thing about election time and It Is a mans duty as itis his privilege to talk it and become infrrmedjand inform his associates but there are times for all things and the shortsession of the legislature should as it doubtless will be devoted to furthering

incredibly large could it be determined at all The only surprise is that therejis one left alive Every year the num ber of hunters the destructiveness of guns increase while a steadily decreasing ratio marks Bob- Whites chances for life As the country gradually clears np and settles more closely his breeding coverts and haunts grow fewer In many counties in the upper part of the State the quail is practical ly extinct One of the deadliest enemies of the bird is the foreign hunter He comes equipped for the slaughter and slays so long as a living tar get for his repeating gun can be found Then he ships his game and moves on to fresher fields to wholesale slaughter The Times has in mind one instance in which a dozen quail fell before a Win chester in leps than two minutes while the same hunter shipped over 300 birds out of the State as the result of four days hunting This is not sport It is wanton destruction of life In Indiana every nonresident sportsman must take out a
