6rltl6 FROM COURIERJOURNAL NeeNN OeeceeeeeNeNee ee A great many letters have come to me in the last few weeks some from those who are friends some from those who are not urging me to use radical measures in dealing with the unfor tunate trouble in Breathitt county to declare martial law and to have trials of the accused by courtmartial to remove Judges and other officials and in fact to do most anything for which there isabsolutelyno warrant of law to do upon the part of the executive A number of newspapers in the State some kindly in their feelings towards me others most hostile and bitter have conic out in heavy editorials and said it was up to the Governor to do something put a stop to this law lessness and crime None of them exceprtion ever suggested in their infinite wisdom a plan to the Governor as to what he should do All seemed to hint at a declaration of martial law I have teen left in the dark by thes sagacious critics with their various feelings and purposes as to whether it was best for me to consume this lawlessness with fiery rhetoric and noisy pronounclamentos or to tbrow to the winds the Constitution of the State and to boldly enter the scene of trouble with arms and ammunition snap my fingers at Judges Commonwealths Attorneys and juries and defiantly proclaim that I was the Czar of Ken tucky and not its chief peace olllcer who has a conscientious regard for the obligations an oath and who hUm- bly respects the fundamental laws ofI his State THE YELLOW JOURNALSI These criticisms friendly or un friendly have not swerved me in the least from the pathway of what I havau conceived to be my duty and the just responsibilities of my high oilice IJ care not one particle for the pharisaic- al censure of those yellow journals of the Norsh and East whose mercenary greed fora salable romance and whose neighIrent the great and good people because one county out ot 119 in the State has recently been the scene of certain crimes and violations of the law It has become a fashion and a fad wit these papers to picture in the mss lurid and sensational type a killing in Kentucky when the slaughter of anI entire family in their locality is not dignified with a dozen lines WARRIOIOSN Guard of one of the Northern States to suppress a strike where hundreds may be slain does not attract oneibalf the notice from these veracious jourI nals as does the use of one company of Kentucky militia in aiding some Cir cuit Court in the trial of a criminal An illustration of this might be found in the recent trouble in Breathict where it was difficult to tell whether the war correspondent or the soldle outnumbered the other and these ferocious and unarmed lon dlstance warriors safely guarded against danI ger to their valiant persons breathe- forth tbreatenings of war and told an eager ond expectant public what a Governor a 01 a com cr1hicsjneed not be considered When they succeed in eradicating crime at least in reducing it in their own States then we may give them a re dlspecttulus how to purify Kentucky TheI Breathitt county trouble is altogether local and the effort to throw odium Onty the entire State on account of it is due solely to sectional hate or political exigency TilE PEOPLE IMPATIENT It Is with critics in our own State that 1 propose to deal The people ofest the whole State have been indignantly and justly aroused over the crimes recently committed in that county In their impulsive resentment against the guilty have been a little impatient for results Their feeli about the situation is to be commend ed for it shows tee character of our eoeeNOOeeeoooeooooooeeeo e noble and lawabiding people Tne have demanded prompt and vigorous action in dealing with the trouble It may seem surprising to those in th least familiar with our Constitution but it is a fact that nearly all the de mandsjmade upon me for action have been that I should declare martial law there and ha tc all cases tried by court martial That has been the advice given by most of my critics I would pay no attention to it whatever ex cept that it comes in many instances from people and newspapers of Intelligence who are not seeking to make political capital out of the matter but want to see justice done and in their im patience have forgotten that the Governor of Kentucky has absolutely no such right and It hcshould attempt to use such arbitrary power he wouldI be and ought to be impeached THE GOVERNORS POWERI lawesubversion of civil law and estabtlshesi trials by military courts is the hlghJ est form of tyranny and has no place our n Constitution and laws Charles I lost his head and James II lost his throne for committing no greater offenses than the Governor o Kentucky would commit It be wouJdC assume and seek to use such an unwarranted power The Constitution of our State and the Codstltutlon of the United States guarantee to ever mar accused ol crime the right of trialI by jury and that life liberty or propJ erty shall not be taken away from lei without due process of law The Con stitution of Kentucky further declares that the military power shall always be in strict subordination to the civil thorities When the Governor calls troops into service he is compelled by law to place them under some local civil officer He has no right to move a Judge a Commonwealths At torney or any other district or county official It be has any authority over them whatever it is purely of an advisory character In some states the Governor has the right toremove a Sheriff which gives him considerable power in dealing with infractions of the law In Kentucky no such power righttto to another county nor to remove the regular Judge and appoint a special Judge in his place Only when the regular Judge declines to sit can the Governor appointc UNDONEIgreat many people have nott realized or thought of all these limits tions and restrictions on the power otc the Governor and some havehonestl though lgnorantlycriticlsed me in thet matter I have done everything pos stole to aid in the punishment cri and the suppression of lawlessness in that county No one has regretted more than I have the unfortunate strsmost earnest thought and the most serious consideration of which Iam fdall uty without fear or favor and with the sincere desire to see the guilty pun shed whoever they might be I have been active in every way possible to aid the enforcement of the law REDWINEOWhile I bejleve Judge Redwine to be an honest and capable Judge I urged him several days before his coo began not to try these cases hhnseltJ but to transfer them to another coun or to allow me to appoint another Judge I feared that convictions might not be had in Breathitt countyI But he took a different view of it and his conduct in the recent trials shows that be was honest faithful and earn in his desire to see the law en forced After the jury failed to agree he promtly transferred the cases to a county against which there could be no possible objection on toe part of gthe prosecution He has called a spe cial term of the Breathitt Court for the furthci estlgatlon of crime t committed in that county and I be lleve that It will be only a short time before every citizen ia the county will see that that the law Is supreme and that there must be an end of crime 1 believe Judge RedwIne Is earnest in his desire to vindicate the majesty of the law in this his home county but I have advised him I have no right to do any more that on account of the peculiar condition there he re fuse to sit and allow me to appoint a Judge at that special term of court Wherever It has been possible for enpcniorcing the law I have done so and will continue to do deetails of this affair in deference to thou who have been honest and not un friendly REPUBLICAN CRITICS Now let us turn our attention for a while to those people who exulted in the death of William Goebel and who today would rejoice to see every citizen of Breathitt county murdered an3 every house burned if it would make for them some political capital against me and against the Democratic party There was a report that when the unfortunate Marcum lay dying on the spot where be had been shot Curtis Jett in a little while afterward came around stood over the dying man with an assumed air of gravity and said This is an awful thing So there are today some Republicans pers and leaders In Kentucky who tool Breathitt county with affected sor row and say This is an awful thing Certain newspapers and men who applauded the assassination of Leri tuckys Governor and a reign of terror in the State capital now pretend to be dtsturbcf d over the condition of affairs in Breath itt As a Democrat I am proud of the fact that the pemocratlp press and the deynounce dime and lawlessness regardI of politics and nave been unapt rnmcus in their condemnation of the as sassination of Mr Marcum even tbough he happened to be a RepublfI can leader A WONDERFUL CONTRAST The Democratic party in Kentucky has no sympathy with crime no matter who may be the criminal N Democratic paper and no Democratic person has yet sought to take up subscriptions to defend the assassins ofand Marcum On the contrary they have thrown their whole influence to the effort to have those assassins punished What a wonderful contrast have they shown with the conduct of the Repub icon press when Goebel was murdered and the entire Commonwealth seem to be on the verge of revolution and anarchy Had the Republican part shown the same eargerness to punt his assassins as the Democrats have shown in their desire to see Marcuma assassins punished then that atro crime of over three years ago would have cost the Republican partyI loss ot some of its most distin guisbed leaders Did they shed a to show the least sympathy for him assassinps Every citizen ot Kentucky knows that they did not and that on 1mapas suffering with the awful agonies of death from his wound the Republican officials sent a lot of their militia ndter ationed them immediately under his window tbat with their boisterous conduct and noisy demonstrations they might disturb and harass the hours of the fallen leader whom th could not defeat except by assassination All honor to the Democratic press and the Democratic people of Kentucky because they have no recognized and politics in this Breathitt county matter but have with unanimity de rtmended that the guilty be punished regardless of all such questions THEIR DENUNCIATION IS PRAISE The effort of certain Republicans to make a political issue of this is so miserable and so despicable that it is hardly worthy of notice for they must first wash their hands of blood bet they attempt to pose as the apostles of law and order It is from such these thatI have received the most bitter attack and the most willful representations about my official c duct It has been done not because of any just criticism of my administration- as Governor but bt cause of the tact thatl am the Democratic nominee for that office and about to enter a cam paign for re election llni Eowarl tlio trice convlc d murderer of William Ooebcl who when he could not assassinate a man for hire would shoot one for pastime is the petted beneficiary of their liber al donations and is lauded with slavish adulation hs cell decorated with How ers red his savage face the object of admiration by those who love him cause they believe be murdered in cold blood the man whom the Democrats of Kentucky had elected to be their Governor Their censure of me is comium their denunciation Is praIse I do not speak of the mass of Re publicans of Kentucky who I believe do not approve of crime and lawlessno ness of any kind but I refer to those whose bitterness nod malignancy would place upon me the responsibility of the condition ot affairs In Breath Jtt when I have endeavored with all the power In my hands to restore peace in that county just as I tiled three years ago to restore peace throughout Kentucky in the unfortunate condl tions then existingslaPARDON CHARGES DENIED The Republican organ of Kentucky at Louisville by a deliberate plan of misrepresentation and abuse and by falsification of records has lid In these attacks It Is a paper known as 3 notorious black Bailer and professional slanderer and has tried by changing its name without altering its policy to cover up the infamy of its past history It has falsely and wilfully stated that I have turned loise by pardon twentysevensrimlnalsfrom Breathl t county and that such use of the par dgningpower has been the cause of lawlessness in that county The rec ordsshow that I Jiavc granted pardons in only seven of such cases in one case two men being pardoned In everyone of these cases the strongest pOS5I ble reasons for executive clemency ar shown In every one of them excep one a case where the sentence was only one year and a case where it was shown that the offense was no moreI than a misdemeanor and the prisoner had served alarge part of his termI Commonwealths Attorney Byrd the vigorous and fearless prosecutor asks for the pardon In all of them excep one wheys the sentence was two yearsi the Circuit Judge asked for the par 0dons In addition to these are are strong statements from juries the County Attorney and other officials citizens I would be glad to seethe records in all of these cases pub lished in full that the people might see with what good reasons I acted In not a single case can the slightest possible connection be shows to the present feudal troubles of that county edGol11itADLEYS PARDONS liMy distinguished predecessor Gov ITy5hcases from thot county and one moreI where there was a change of venue to Clark county This was the case ofFair Cardwell who killed John Hargis a brother of the present County JudgeI of Breathitt who was convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for man beforea he was ever sent to prison This w done upon the request ot six of the jurors and some of the county officials of Clark Cardwell was a Republican he shows in the record but no one has ever claimed tbat Gov Bradley was influenced by politics in the mat and I do not believe any one basJ ever said tbat this pardon or any nth issued by him had anything to do with these feudal troubles SSGRECALLS CLAY COUNTY eyJust for the sake of cnmparlson this matter let us look at Clay countyI for awhile In the last year ot Gov Bradley administration a fewmonths before the expiration of his term the condition of affairs in that county was worse than it has been in Breathitt Crime and lawlessness were rampant the courts were powerless some of the officials were supposed to be in sympathy with the lawbreakers troops were ordered there Tom Baker the lead erteJ of of one faction was shot and killed while surrounded with soldiers his assassin was never arrested though wornas deplorable aboasut pardons have any beardmof donoot intend to criticise my predcces about pardons or any othc official act I credit him with acting conscientious ly in all such matters but let us sec as this feature has been raised wh was his record la Clay county It lf t shows that r5nt ft nns wore pintoud by him sx f hiyy care of manslaughter awl that he also pardon ed before trial twentyfive misdemeanor cases I do not recite these matters to reflect in the least upon him bu simply to show how unjust nod unfair has been the cr t clstn o me by tte Republican papers STANDS ON HIS RECORD 1 have been extremely cautious all pardon mitterj but like every other Governor I may at times bar been Imposed upon and made mistakes However I am perfectly willing my record in the matter shall stand the full light of public view and I am t afraid of its examination and comparison Without criticising any of my honorable predecessors I know that it can be shown that none of them ever Ihavestatement of facts but for the reason that so many falsehoods have bee circulated about the matter by Repub lican organs in their desperat3 and nderous efforts to find some Issue upon whcb their discredited party can go before the people this talc I care not for their

reorganizing the Demo cratic Committee in tho Fifth Congressional district Ho will attempt to make the issue on the money question and thereby seek to select the campaign committee from the apostles of discontent and in opposition to the regular Democratic nominees This if ho succeeds would embarrass not only the local ticket in Louisville but would damage the State tick et Mr Young has been defeated in tho courts he stands denounc ed by the great majority of Dem ocrats in the State We nave no fears that ho will be able to con trol the Central Committee and carry out his deadly plans against the party in whose service and in terest he was selected to work Ye have that faith in the makeup of the committee that forces the conviction that he is not the on ly pebble on tho beach and that he can not butcher the Democratic nominees to satisfy his personal feelings The money issue is a thing of the past Wo want a committee of Democrats and com posed of men who will work for the interest of the nominees The Central Committee will teach Mr Young a few things and we trust that it will be able to secure a wise and satisfactory adjustment Mr Q C Godbey has withdrawn from the race for the Republican nomination for Commonwealths Attorney in this district In his withdrawal announcement he is discreet and courteous a distinct ive feature of his makeup Mr Godbey made quite a number

when such men rarely suc ceed in political warfare We say to Mr Godbey call and see us We are not of your political faith but we admire an honest consci entious gentleman The withdrawal of Mr Q 0

party in the State says the South if let alone will settle the negro prob lem to the satisfaction of tho civ ilized world says that the North is having a taste of what the South has been experiencing
