Jennings While Morgan was thus marching at easy stages through the richest portion of the State augmenting his forces and remounting it his men with little loss and at trilling expense a condition of tne most perfect bewilderment seems to have taken possession of Union forces at Lexington and Frankfurt With troops sufficient to have surrounded him at any of the points above mentioned they were marching hither and thith er but always returning to their camps at night At Crab Orchard and Somerset 130 government wagons were captured and burned and several wagons loaded with blankets shoes and other stores much needed in the South were taken along of with the column to Sparta Tenn Enough of spare horses guns and sad dies were captured to supply all th men who had been left behind In twenty

welldefined issue between the north and the south regard to the rights of the colored man That is an inexcusable mistake forJ wellinformei a newspaper to makeI even in the north No such ists between the north and the south today and will not at any time in the future The south simply insists that the privilige to vote is a grant tram the state to those who are legally rift zen ot the state and the United States upon conditions named by the state and not in contravention of the CO- nstitution of the nation In that contention the supreme court of the nation has been with the south up to the present time What will do in the future remains to be seen but if it follows logically the course it has already indicated it will hold with the south to the end It Ohio and Nebraska permit the negro to vote simply because he is an adult male citizen and with no refer ence to the intelligence of his cltlzcnI ship the honesty of his action and theI evil results to life and property to flow from his possession of the ballot the south can make no objection to their positions But Nebraska and Ohio do not have to consider such results The negroes in their communities is so small as to make them absolutely immune to the risks that follow uulim southeSuch suffrage in this section wouldI make racial conflicts of daily occur put the laws into the hands of incompetents and corruptioaists in many communities reduce prosper confiscate properties and put in thest both northern and southern men have in the regeneration of south prosperities As we have said heretofore northern capital was es stubborn against coming into south until stable honest and wahs The south is gaining new allies in the north every day Every man who aledo us our t voter shall not again rob riot ruin the governments and pros of our people The editors and politicians who yet contend for negro in the south are growing smaller in numbers and beautifully less in in finance every dayAtlanta Consitu lion

Judge on the bench in Berks County whose decisions in consequence numerous reversal did not alway command universal respect One day in case in which he was sitting one of the lawyerslost patience at his Inability to see things Ic a certain light and in the heat of the moment remarked that the intellect of the court was so dark a flash of lightning could not penetrate it For this contempt the Judge showed a disposition to be very severe with the offender and it was only after much persuasion by friends of the latter that he yielded and des dried to accept a public apology The following day the lawyer accordingly appeared before his honor and made amends by saying tandal0lightning could not penetrate it I guess it could It is a very penetr ing thing Philadelphia Ledger Carroll Reds

the Hargls faction in Breath It county is DemocraticThe of the Glasgow Times does not know that the Hargis faction in the Breathitt county feud is Democratic The editor of the Times does know that Judge Hargis the leader of the Breathitt county factions is a Demo cratand a member of the Democratic State Central Committeea position which he should at once resign or be forced out of The editor of the Times does know that J B Marcum was assassinated juLt after he filed notice of contest for an office in Breathitt county and that Jett a nephew of Judge Hargis is on trial for the murder But what has any of this or all of tots to do with the present condition of affairs In Breathitt No Democrat has any more right to assassinate a Republican than has a Republican to shoot a Democrat in the hick The assassin belongs to no party He is an outlaw abloodthfrstybeastwhosecx termination is the duty of every brave thetmurderers and ambushcrs or Breathitt county are Democrats then so much the more and stronger the reason why they should be relentlessly hunted down and brought to justice Demo crOcy Is not the party of assassina tion The outlaws who are murdering citizens and btrnlng homes in

the statement foun elsewhere In this issue giving credit to the officials as they olaime they were entitled in our former article hut the presumption assumed by the Spectator in advis ing us as to how we should act necessitates a statement paper is out for law and order en v days behind its opportunity It reiterated in substance our de nunciations of the conduct o which we mentioned at that time and sought to create the impres sion that a vigorous and constant effort had been made to arrest and prosecute the offenders Prof Ratcliffe exhonorates Mr Staples the deputy sheriff from indiffer ence on his part The people o the town are acquainted with tb conditions that actuated the News and they are fairly well advised a to the real efforts made by th Town Marshal and the interest manifested by the County Judge Our article was intended to awak en and arouse what seemed to indifference and to advance the general good of this community- It was not the product ofmalac a nor was it the result of total ig norance as we were charged fo there were ample reasons to justify the sentiment of the article though defective in part in so far as we stated that no effort had been made and which is corrected in this issue This matter has been sufficiently aired and our de sire for peace and tho welfare of the town forbids a fuller state ment We pass it knowing that the peoplrof the town have their own opinions and further comment is useless but up to this date no one has been brought be fore the bar of justice though im mediately after last weeks issue ono arrest was made If the people of the town are satisfied with tno effort it is sufficient Gov Beckhams statement pub lished in last Saturdays Courier Journal is clear and to the point He takes up tho affairs of Breath itt county showing conclusively that ho has done all in his power to bring about a better state of affairs In replying to criticisms from Republican papers at homo and abroad he draws a con trast between their attitude at tho time of Gov Goebels assication iud at present and assorts that Democratic papers are unanimous in cuudtmujiig tho killing of Mar com and Sro not raising subscrip tlous to defend his assassins Ho compares his pardon recond with that of Gov Bradley and reminds his critics of tho disorders in Clay county during Gov Bradleys term He says that ho has been careful has not abused tho pardoning power and that he is wil ling to stand by the recordII Past Grand Master James W Staton who met with a stroke ofb ago f1di Mr Calhoun has done for the State what all of its Senators and Cungresmen since the Civil War havi bftcjs uuabiu to do His nctI ual reward is less than half given by all other States for whic like services have been performed However Mr Calhoun chances to be a Democrat under a Democratic Administration To this fact can pllrtiCsan press that the State has been rob bed It has been repeated with constancy and vehemence in tho attempt to create tho impression that it is actually believed by the howlers themselves Unfortunately for the success of the effort the pooplu of Kentucky have the habit of ihinkii g fur themselves and the character of Mr Calhouus service is too clearly proven to be i n ju red by misrepresentation The above ia from the Louisville Times and is offered as argument in favor of Governor Beckhams employment of Mr Calhoun in the collection ofa debt due the State about which Republican pers seek to make capital for their party Any man whether he bo Democrat or Republican Populist or Prohibition who can honestly say that governor Beckham committed a crime against this State by employing a man of ability to collect the large sum that was col lected and paying him liberall for it is a man of much prejudice indeed All the people and publi cations in this State admitted at that time that the Governor had acted wisely Since then Republi can editors seek to make it a crime With the three commercial- d Powers England Germany and the United States exercised ove the tariff question prospects for free trade are looking up Free trade at least among the great Powers which rest practically upon the same industrial basis is a log tical and inevitable result of the increasing perception of high tariff evils coupled with the tendencies of international commercial inter- f course ItThe above is from the St Louis Republic

In the unforgntten Sum Randall days great Htress was laid upon the duty that in all essential things the two wings of the Democratic party should flop togeth er It IS not to tho discredit of the Democratic party either that it has usually had two wings The very spirit of democracy is such as to encourage debate independence of thought and strife to establish a majority sentiment in the party The habitudo of the republican party is different It is led by the official faction and the rank and file have been always drilled to follow the flag no matter which way the bosses carried Our venerable old friend of tho marble heart Senator Proctor cf Vermont geefully rubs his hud over the prospect as he sees it that the two democratic wings will not flop together in 1904 any mere than in 1896 and 1900 Because he believes they will not he naive ly admits that the rosy certainties of tho republican party at this hour might get badly tangled in a bunch of interrogation pointsif two wings should happen to flop together in 1904 Unlike Senator Proctor we be lieve the aforesaid wings will be found flopping together in beautiful harmony shortly after this time next year We not know of course what trend events may take within the twelve months but if matters inside the party make the Fame rate of progress meanwhile as they have made in the past year the democracy will enter the campaign of 1904 with measures and men that will be virile magnetic and have an equal show for victory with the republi oan platform and candidates Men who attempt to continue or create divisions in the party ranks will be no more entitled in 1904 to be called democrats than were those who bolted and defeated the party in 1896and 1900 The real effective democratic leaders of to day are working to unite those voters of the nation who at heart are democrats and so present to the nation a harmonious and triumph ant party next year We believe they will succeed and that whoever tries to prevent that success will be made to walk the plank He can not claim any right as a mutineer on the democratic ship Atlanta Constitution The Prussian woman who poi soned four husbands and attempt ed the life

sources that the negroes do not get Justice in the courts of the southSuppose we say here and now that they do notand take a couple of recent incidents to back up our con fessionA days ago a negro in this city flimflammed a national Dank out of over 600 by a paying tellers error in handling a couple of checks Because of the negroes previous good character although he confessed his theft and returned the larger part of the money no prosecutor appeared against him and he went free and unwbipped of justice We would like a northern instance to match this case of injustice to the negro In Texas the supreme court has just reversed a verdict of death passed upon a young negro who was clearly convicted of a criminal assault upon a young white girl It appeared that he was under 17 years of age and the law forbids the hanging of a person under that age Consequently al though his guilt was plain as the sun at noon and the penalty for his crime is death he goes free of that penalty With these cases at hand we do not think our assertion can be denied that negroes often do not get Justice in southern courts before white Atlanta Constitution A mob of 1000 men surrounded the Jail at
