the state a better Investment than our money does when placed at the regular interest In the state depositories During the lastthree years of republican administra thelion they had highest tax rate we have ever paid except In one Instance many ago when it was the In dht their doubting the rithe state In they ratted the rate of taxation from cents to 5h cents on the one hundred dollars but tin nro sided in the law that at the end ot three years this tax rate should fall cents or rtductlontherefore 4dIfliflratiohithat when we came Into power In 190 this reduction begun und the first two years of our administration we had to run on a cent rate Instead of a 2Ys cent rate which our republican predecessors had enjoyed This reduction made a difference in our revenue the first year of and the second year of all pf which would have been added to the revenues If ve had been running at the republican rate of cents This tailing of In the rev enues at that time made It difficult for to meet the necessary expenses The ruinous and riotous conduct of the repub lican regime under Taylor lettus the legacy of many extraordinary expenses and a disordered condition of the states finances The general assembly of therefore found It necessary to Increase thetAx rate to cents on the hundred sOars until the fiscal a1rashouleSt Tbp fliUmIIXrPayne tllt LHee8 nr t rfi t r 2f tn a normal condition again That is the present rate but I am happy to say that reason of the prudence economy and businesslike management of the demo critic state it will be possible for the general assembly next winter to either materially reduce the present rate or to so apportion It in the interest of the school thereafter it will bo pos sible without additional taxation to give a seven months public school term stead of a five months term as now This I believe would be a wise policy and It Is made possible by the financial management of the present democratic state officials And yet Mr Belknap talks about giving the state a business ad ministration But we shall pay our re spects to him on that subject later on with all our debts and claims paid there will be in the state treasury on the 1st of next January nearly The largest showing ever before made in the state There Is not a state in the union whose fiscal affairs can make a better showing than ours Still Mr Belknap says ought to aro1will ttp saIr artgl Ketnucky people too well to be uneasy about their verdict In addition to this excellent financial showing It can also be proven that the present administration has done more to improve and enlarge the public institutions of the state than any other administration ever did We have spent much money In needed Improvements In all the charitable Institutions the state college the state normal school for colored ple the deaf and dumb Institute and the two penitentiaries All of these Institu Uons are in a better condition now than ever before The two prisons instead of being a great drain upon the revenues of the state as they used to be under the old management are now under the busi nesslike control of democratic officials selfsupporting and I am Informed by the commissioners that this year they will pay a small revenue to the state instead of being a tax upon It as was the case adoptedLettion of prison management and see the difference between the republican and the democratic administrations During the and In Got Brad fJ t ln to run the two pus ons cost the state During the years and under this administration they have cost the state only This makes a saving to the state in the three years of 307yJ33i These figures speak for themselves eral ot the charitable Instltutlqns of the have been so that they have teen able put of their nllawances under the law to save enough to buy siderable additional land for Insti tutions and to make other valuable im provements all out of their per capita allowance Much political capital has been sought to be made out of tho man agement of some of these institutions but I can say and prove that never be fore were more successfully or cap ably managed than they have been dur ing the last three years There was some trouble at the Hopkinsvlllo asylum over two years ago made a most careful Investigation of it and concluded that the superintendent was responsible for It I promptly removed and put another man In his place Since then there has been no trouble there Laat spring a big sensation was attempted to be made out of some charges of cruelty to patients at the Lakeland asylum and an made to hold me for them because I had appoInted the head officials IllItltutlonAn Investigation was mad by the board of commissioners andalso by myself In person and by my representative I found that In two cases at used unnecessary force In and when discov ered lnttowlPft nwr promptly discharged The principal charges made against the there and about whose testimony so much was said by the hostile were made by tWo con vict caWentfc deorgo Vortwooa and Mary Noble and to give some Idea of the character of this testimony I will tell who they are Portwood several years ago killed a man In Lexington and upon trial was sentenced to be hanged Got Bradley commuted his sentence to life imprisonment He made application me for a full pardon It was refused He feigned Insanity and was tried on that question last winter The jury was deceived and authorized his transfer to the asylum He was taken to Lakeland but the doctors there quickly discovered his purpose and that was to escape They took extra precautions with him doing He was CreFcferide1ft them tc not letting him get away and at me because I did not pardon him Ho was itnffaCeeven testimony transferred back to the prison where he belongs The other witness Mary Noble was transferred from the prison to the asylum She too had to be closely watched She was not Insano Her prison term expired while she was at the asylum and she was released Since then she ban been arrested upon a charge of housebreaklng and is now In the Louisville aU Such is the testimony upon which the republicans rely about the terrible state of affairs at the any lum There are about patients In the Institution tho population of a lit th class town It Is impossible that In such a largo institution there should not be an occasional mishap or wrong but there have been remarkably few there during this administration lor the superintend ent and his assistants are men of the kindest hearts and are as watchful and careful of the comfort of these unfortu nate beings as it is possible to be If Ihad had the slightest reason to believe that any one of them had been guilty of the least cruelty or negligence lie would have been promptly removed No one visits that InstltuUon who is not Im pressed with its splendid management and the excellent care taken of the ini exced4inglyare grasping atnstraws In their desperate efforts However if they are anxious to ori Issue of the management of state institutions I will cheerfully accom modate them and compare this adminis tration with the republican administration with Its troubles at the Lexington asylum the Feeble Minded Institute the prisons antI other places I have noth to conceal and would be proud of the comparison The present administration has established one additional public Institution and that Is the the aJAged and Infirm at Pewee Valley where the old veterans of the Confederacy who draw no pensions from the government can be well cared for and looked after In their old age We have also passed a law giving ma terlal

in these mat tern and did what they thought was right But as this question has been brought up and an unlimited number of misrepresentations and falsehoods have been circulated about my pardon recOrd and to create thelmpreg slvlhJhtrcfrtre the power exces e comparisons anti Itthe people see how little truth there Is In what pas been said and published The figures shown by the executive journals

ticket their first appointment being at Liberty We are informed tha an unusually large crowd was present and that more genuine en thusiasm was manifested than for many years The next appoint ment was at Jamestown and there fully 1000 wera out to hear the two distinguished gentlemen and to give them a hearty welcome From Jamestown to Columbia many were out on the road side to see the Governor and to give him a hearty shake of the hand and in justice to Mr Beckham it seemed to us that he enjoyed stop ping and shaking hands with the men women and children even more than they if possible We remarked to him that our people in this part of the State rarely had an opportunity to meet our most distinguished citizens and officials and while it might be considered by some as satisfying a curiosity to see a Governor yet it is their character and makeup to show their appreciation of his visit to this section He remark ed that it was a great pleasure to be in this part of the State that the desire manifested along the route to meet him was truly commendable and highly appreciated by hinuself On reaching Columbia he and Mr James and the two reporters Grahum Vreeland of the Couriert Journal and Tom Wallace of the Herald were all given a hearty welcome at the Marcum Hotel andevery courtesy shown within the reach of our people to make their stay a pleasant one Early Thursday morning a reception was held in the public room of the hotel the Governor being introduced to hundreds of Democrats by Mr Jas Garnett Jr In the afternoon fully 3000 people assembled on our Fair Grounds to hear the issues pre seated from a Democratic stand point Gov Bokhara was intro duced in brief and interesting manner by Hon J F Montgom ery and Congressman James made his bow to tho vast assembly after Judge James Garnett had enthusiastically introduced him Gov Beckhams speech was along the lino of his opening ad dress at Winchester which is pub lished on the first page of this pa per He is an easy and pleasant speaker and during the one hour and ten minutes which he occupi ed he had the undivided attentions the vast throng who heard him Upon concluding the ladies show ed their appreciation of his com ing by presenting him wits haud sume bo1c nets Mr James spoke pointedly and was continuously applauded The next day Greensburg was reached at 1080 and the Governor and his associates drove to the ball grounds where the Lebanon team had come to show the Greensburg boys how to play ball The game was promptly called and Governor Reokham pulled his coat stepped into the box and pitched the first ball like an old stager Ttie game was highly interesting end when the play was over victdnT was perched on the boys of Greenthe score standing 6 to 3 Heretofore the Lebanon team had carried off the laurels but this time ability and determi nation asserted their power and our neighbor boys proved too strong aid skillful for the bine grass players to maintain their record At 1pm 1500 to 2000 people afsembled in a beautiful grove and paid the closest atten tion to the speeches of their die tinguished visitors The next day Saturday was CampboHlsvilles time and in justice to her we are bound to say that nothing was lacking to show apprecia tion of the visit and their determination to out doaJl the towns its this part of the State Fully 8000 people were in that beautifo little ciGy to make mer ryan to extend a cordial greet ing to onJr Governor At 10 a m a procession of 300 was formed headed by a good band followed by decorated hicJes loaded with beautiful ladies and determined Democrats land many horses carry ing enthusiastic voters Their guests were ecorted through the streets and to the court house where a jecjeption was held for an hour hundreds meeting and hak ing the hani ofir itJ future Governor Atl p m 2000 to 2500 were on the courthouse grounds to hear tho speeches Briefly summing up the situation- we cau only say that the best of order prevailed in every town that good feeling was manifested that Democratic enthusiasm and deep determined and unflinching manifestations to roll up a tre mendous majority for the Democratic ticket was never Moro prominent than at present Every place is alive every man is on the alert The cause is a righteousone and victory inevitable if Jdutyis done g s lj Mr Hurts speech at Burksville last Monday was highly

prospect of the railroad Prof Azbill said Yes I have seen and conferred with tie parties we are seeking to terest in the road and there are several things might tell you of the pro gress being made and I appreciate- the desire of our community for fresh information and have tried in my humble way to minister it but I do not think it Important or necessary to warm over the local Interest too often To succeed in an enterprise of this sort requires more than a spasm of good wishes on the pint of ttipse per sons who never expect to do morethan hope it will succeed Besides the men and women who have it in their hearts to help with their substance when the time comes need no reassuring th4t so long as I continue to work for the enterprise there is good ground to pect success In the end But I will tell you this When Col Powell was here he expressed but one doubt about the feasibility of the un dertakingand that was as to whether an electric moter could handle the heavy shipments of freight from this district therefore went to the the city prepared to meet this point I had assurance from the General Electric Company cuts of engines and inangazinc articles to show him But no sooner than the subject was touched be said You need not dwell on that phase of the matter I have been investi gating and find that there is practi cally no limit to what we can haul with electric motors And Und we can get what we want right here at homeAnd when I showed my proofs to one of the Tennis engineers he said with a smile that I might show them to Col Powers but in an ollice like theirs It would not be worth iwhileto spend much time over tbeques lon There are only aboutten miles of difficult grading on the entire line There are thirty wiles which wlllhe as easy of construction
