REASONS FOR CHANQIKQ Sherman Stivers isor has bean a prominent Republican of Bourbon county Ky but for good and sufficient lessons he has forsaken the well worn path he is treading and turns to Democracy for bet termeut of his condition Mr Stivers in a published card says If the insertion of a free silver plank in thu National Democratic platform of 1896 was sufficient excuse for Secretary Carlisle Sena or Lindsay aud thousands of other Democrats to leave their party and if the action of the Louisville Convention that nominated Senator Goebol for Governor was a HiilHcint excuse for ex Cuugre s man Owens audfixGov Brown and thousands of other Democrats for leaving their party then I submit that the assassination of Governor Goebel is a sufficient excuse for me to leave the Republi can party If I adopt the same logic as these two learned and prominent Kentuckiuns to remain a Rupub b titan I must eudorsu assaBdiuatioii- as a justifiable means of settling olitical coiitew and I

with refer ence to the trial of Marcums assassins at Jackson is being commended on all sides The determined action of the Governor to give to the accused fair and impartial trials but to see that they arc brought to trial and the pen alty of the court visited upon them should they be found guilty is worthy of praise though some may claim it is no more than his duty as Chief Execu tire The Marcum case has received considerable notoriety and it is worthy of it because the crime was a foul one But Interest in it has been greatly augmented for the reason that in some respects it is similiar to the assassina tion of Guv Goebel with the position of the political parties reversed Mar cum was a prominent Republican those accused of his assassination and their friends are Democrats Follow the trials of the assassins of Gov Goebel it is cbarged by the Republi can press especially in the East that the Marcum assassins will not be prosscutcd with the same vigor that marked the trials of the Guebel assassins So far nothing has developed to sustain that charge and the vig nron actiius of Guy Beckham have given it the lie To the contrary the trials at Jack son have been entered into with ap parently greater determination on the part of the Commonwealth to convict the guilty parties than was shown in the Goebel assissln trials It such could be possible And on the other band direct

Herald THE FEUD DEVILS OF KENTUCKY The question whether our civilization is a failure may be pertinently debated by tboso who read the ac counts of that court in Kentucky now being held under the protection of a large army guard The case is one of those chargeable to the Greek fire feuds that have so long disgraced eastern Kentucky The suspected mur derers of Attorney Marcu mbave been indicted and ale to be brought to trial at Jackson td which point Governor Beckham has ordered a largo section of state troops to see that the administrators of the law are not carved perforated and scattered in night by the feud factioni of Breatbitt county who believe they are a law unto them spectacle now on at Jacistn must be a shameproducing one to every lawabiding citizen of Kentucky That great state has among its citizens most eminent men of the nation of ficials of courageand probity a society second to none in the world and occu pies a place In the very heart of the republic where the will of its people should indeed be the supreme and universally respected law The nation itself is disgraced by the conditions of practical insurrection wholesale slaughter and public dread existing in parts of Kentucky No reasonable excuse for the prevalence of these conditions cm be offered by the state authorities The men en gaged in the perpetual carnival of the mountain counties know that they are defying laws and terrorizing justice They are selfoutlawed and in many cases dehumanized Governor Beckham has the supreme duty of the executive of a civilize- state to perform He is bound to his oath and to civilization to awe int obedience or exterminate the lawles- characters that now laugh at his proclamations and act the wildcat toward his coordinates of the judiciary If civil law is not

handled ivory from the rock ribbed coast of Maine to the fruit bound shores of California and from the snow clad mountains of Manitoba to the flowerladen groves of Florida received a check Monday for 903 and that it was like getting money from home In the letter which brought the check was a mast remarkable story relating circumstances which Mr Figg well remembers In 1883 Mr Figg was manager and part stockholder in a wellknown clubroom tbat existed at that time In Louisville One night about dark a welldressed stranger entered the clubroom and bought 3100 worth of chips at one of the faro tables Luck was against him and he soon lost his chips and he took his de parture The next night at about the same hour the stranger appeared again aqd dropped another hundred and left The next night he came and purchased another lot amounting to 8100 In tbe middle of the deal when he hadI lost half of his chips a messenger boy stepped Iff and handed the stranger a note The stranger stopped playing lung enough to read it and with a look of anguish tore the note into shreds and cast it upon tbe floor He was soon separated tram his last 350 and Mr Flpg who was the lookout for the game and whose curiosity was aroused got out of the lookout chair gathered together the scraps of paper so that he could read he contents Mr Figg ibgh he has his faults withal has miny a good trait and with these a tender heart and was much maved wnrn he read the following from the Mraps he had placed together Dar llmryl dn not feel as well as usual to ninhr a d I know that cur darlnt litte by is not so wen The proprietor of the hotel says if our bill Is not paid tonight that we must leave Dont you think it would be better for us to continue on our jour net Your Loving Wife The note wes written on the hotel stationary and when Mr Figg read it he believed the stranger to have lost all at his table whereupon he opened the cash drawer drew out the 9300 and started for the hotel intending to leave the amount with the women wbowrotc the note and who seemed in such distress Placing the money in his vest pocket he started for th hotel but as he turned dark a corner a man with a bankerchicf over the lower part of his face placed a revolv er immediately front of bis forehead and demanded his money or his life Mr Figg threw up both hands and the robber touched him for the 9300 With much discomfiture turned to go back to the club room and when nearing it a highwayman encountered him a second time demanding his money or his life Mr Figg told him to try another for he had gotten him once that night At these words the footpad hastened away Now comes the most remarkable part of the story as detailed in the letter containing the above mentioned check The sub stance was this that the writer was on his way from Southern Mississippi to Colorado with his wife and child The wife was suffering with tubercu losis and he was takingher there with tbe hope of curing her of the dreadful malady While In Louisville he fJslt ed the club room and lost all of his money During the last play he received a notefrom his wife telling him of the threat to drive them from the hotel and he became desperate After leaving tho club room he determined to bold up the first man he met and relieve him of his money By some hde met after his proved to be Figg though he did not know it until pocketssthe money tiken from him he came to Colorado securing a lucrative position lived an upright life as he had always done with the exception of Thedletter stated that wife recovere her health and the husband had pros pered beyond his wildest diearns and now owns one of tbe most commodious and wellfurnished hotels Iu the Cen shunbpay with accu mulated interest and some bonus The writer cordially invited Mr

postage to one cent This is all right and we are glad that he has taken a step that we can com mend Revised reports from the sceneI 1of the tornado at Gainesville GaI place the list of dead at about 100 while 150 are injured Twenty of these may die The property loss is now estimated at half a million dollars Last Friday Judge Asher Caruth granted a temporary injunction against Allie W Young and others to prevent them from interfering with the Democratic Committee of Louisville and Jefferson county In other words the recent primary held in Louisville stands under Caruths decision The case will be taken to the Court of Appeals and a final decision is expected this week The Danville advocate strikes the key note when it says The next Democratic State Conven tion in order to promote harmony intho rank and file would accom plish a good work by curtailing toI some extent the powers now dele gated to the Central and Execu tive Committees and permitting the counties to attend to their own local affairs to a far greater extent than they arb now permitted to do The State Commercial Conven tion hold in Louisville last week was well attended and many good resolutions were made which if carried into effect will result in much good to our State At any rate aucn meetings can not do hrmand in our judgment they are hound to bring about an awak emug ofour people to the great posaibiiitios that our natural re sources are capable of sustaining under tho magic touch of modern methods of development It is time that Kontuckians assert their worth in all the avenues that go to make a State a conspicuous spot on the map of our country Kentucky should not be slower than other States that surrounds her A great awakening is just beginning to dawn r r i 1 It is immaterial with Demo crats what Rpnllvui orgmi Pv about thu Louisville muddle TLyI may comment on the situation and and predict the future and bothI prove worthless to that crowd Ev ery well posted man every well meaningcitizen knows that troub Ie will arise in party affairs and willadmit that the majority is not always in fault The efforts of the Republican papers in this State to holdup John Whallen and his methods in Louisville and pitch slurs and denunciations at the regular Democracy may afford the editors of such sheets much pleasure but it will not result in good to their party nor in harm to ours It seems that such publications have no regard for any one who votes tho Democratic ticket that all are denounced as totally unscrupulous and yet such sheets seek the aid and patronage of the people they so bitterly denounce This seems to be particularly true of tha small country publications that revel and delight in criticism of the Democratic party Demo cratic officials and voters The temptation to meet and defend such charges is indeed hard to shun when we realize our ability to suc cessfully do so but the low plane upon which we would be forced to operate is too repulsive conse quently w e have passed such charges as beneath our notice The News was brought into existence for a higher and nobler purpose than to take low and degrading methods to advance party inter ests We believe and firmly ad vocate the great principles of Democracy We are anxious for our party to win but while this is true we are not willing to denounce ev ery man who fails to see as we do nor brand him a thief because he may not act in accord with our party or ourselves We have no compromise to make with Repub licans We have never bid for their support at the sacrifice of our convictions but have a higher motive in view than the mere ser vice of politicians and trailing along with the hope of sharing in a piece of pie or of making a rep utation within our party The News is here to aid in the advance ment of this part of the State It seeks to better public conditions at home in the social moral intel lectual and business walks of life but while this is true we surren der no part of our honest convictions for popular applause and are perfectly willing to give fair treat ment and render due respect for those who hold to different opin ions religiously politically or oth- erWIse If we desired to throw dirt we could make a hand The Republican party is not above criticism What should concern our people more than any thing else is to better public conditions Peace and harmony and united ac tion ought to spread over our en- tIre country and especially in this part of the State where we need so much development in every thing except in politics Most men are honest in their opinions few ever waver in political action and eter nal abuse profiethnothing It will not do for municipal boards to fool with the Standard Oil Company Here is what took place at Pleasant Hill Mo The council laid a tax of 25 on the right to sell coal oil in their city A check for the amount was promptly remitted from Standard Oil headquarters accompanied by instructions to the companys cal agent to raise the price of oil in Pleasant Hill 2 cents per gal lon Thus this tax of 25 per year will it is estimated cost the people of Pleasant Hill 500 per year The rights of stockholders were upheld by Judge Miller in the suit against the Louisville Evening Post In rendering his opinion Judge Miller Stated that the plaintiffs had acted in good faith and that the Post Corporation not being a going concern could not close its books against the inspection sought The Post and John Whallon have been one for several years but it looks now like the day of separation is close tit hand Tho Whito Mills
