mAn in New York know the war record of the man quoted He has been living here svs the Herald engaged iu busi ness for twelve years What do I think of the story he asked You will notice that they did not roll it until after QUKutrel1e old mother dieda few days ago Thu atury saps Mrs QuautrHH d rathremrjved the striation of sHcreoytbH secret be jog that Mrs Quantrsll knew that two of the bones of her son were exhumed in Kentucky a long time ago Mrs Quantrell being present and that with her knowledge and consent they were sent back to Kansas That story will nt do Quant rail s reticence silence and quiet manner were inherited from his mother She lived through all of his trials kept in communication with him when he was being hunt ed like an animal and knew often just where he was when no one else did She knew whop he left MIS souriafter the Lawrence raid she knew that he crossed into Arkan sas went to the house of a Mal Boswell a Confederate secret serviceman who lived just above Memphis

Quautrell and the menwho stayed with him march after they were landed into Kentucky I know that soon aft er that he met his muthlr I did not know it at the time but 1 learned from Mrs Quautrell herself after her sons death that to her and to her aLma had he revealed his plans He told her that he proposed to go to Maryland and from that State conduct opera tions in PenusylvlInll as hit had done on the border He believed even at that late day that If gue- rilla tactics were employed in the Eastas they had been in the West the tide might turn He was wrong of course Only a miraole could have turned the tide at that stage But it was always Quant le11s idea to strike terror into the North If his plan had been adop ted when he proposed it in the second year of the war to Presi dent Davis the resultwell the war would have been prolonged I must not say any more He didnt reach Maryland When he went into Kentucky he found Federals iu the woods They were as thick as leaves He fought at times a dozen times a day and kept it up in the night If there ever was a hunted man it was Quantrellin Kentucky He did not know the hog paths as he knew the haunts of the Kansas coyotes In this Kentucky chase his old mother frequently knee of his privations and sufferings for he was bullet marked before he crossed the Mississippi river Do yousup pose that any mother and especially the mother of Quantrell who hefto the taking apart of the bones of his body Aud if such a thin g could have been dune with her consent do you suppose she would have stipulated that bone of thesState of Kaunas to beplaaedon exhibitiona elate which her eon had swowu to lay deslate if he could accomplish It a state which taught its children to abhor his name Ou July 15 1865 Quantrell and eleven of his men had been run to cover in a barn and he was parl ztd by bugles A few o f his comrades bleeding and shat tared stayed by him and finally carried him to a house where hh told them goodbye Gen John M Palmer then in command of Kentucky heard of Qaantrall being in the house where he was left and sent an ambulance accompanied by a guard and had the old guerrilla removed to the military hospital in

when the crime of the thug and robber were as rampant as they are to day In Chic ago New York Philadelphia Boston San Francisco and other cities give some interesting statistics as to Chicago It has complied from one ot the details ot that city a list of seventeen fatal assaults by thugs and robbers be tweeD October and December 25 and adds that there were more than fifty boldups and robberIes without fatal results for every name on the list only one here and there having been killed This Is but a fair retaliation for the practice which Northern papers have of publishing every act or lawlessness reported from the Suuth with startling headlines and incriminating editorial comments After summing tip all the Statistics the News says Considering all the facts the con dltionsin Chicago have become alarm tali CitlztnSC1lnnut leave their homes at night and are frequently attacsed- to their homes Business houses are closed early to permIt employers and employees to reach their homes or tels before darkness settles down over the cIty Even durlnllthe day numer oun robberies are cummltteed All these facts are published ha the col acm of Chicago papers Cnndltions are no hetttr in San Francisco and little better in other cities meutioned As the reign of crime is spreading and growing worse all the time It Is obvious tbat the people have In this an entirely new question to consider and settle In time this questllln will be presented to the peope of every pros perous community In the country The question Is briefly whether we shall have anarchy or lawUourlef Journal A NEW CAPITOL In speaking orGo new capitol In his message Gov Beckham says You will hear much this session up on the subject ot an appropriation to erect new capitol buildings In the message to the General Assembly 1002I f expressed my opinion about It and as that opinion Is the same now as It was then quote what I said about it It Is a tact apparent to aU especl- aUy to visitors from other States who come to our capitol thatin the matter of capitol buildings Kentucky Is far behind other States even those ot much less wealth and population The unsightly and Incronllruous buIldings which are now used as the capitol are unworthy of the State ot Kentucky as yrell as Inadequate m their accom modattona for the public business Toe building In which you are now assembled Is especially unsuited tor the purpose far which It Ii used and lain almost In cons tant need ot repair a tomake It fit and sate for use at all The public records and State Itbrar are In constant danger or destructionI by the lack ot fireproof arranJIDent1 The General Assembly Is provIded with no committee rooms or otbe conveniences so necessary to their comfort and to the proper dispatch or business It Is not only right that the capitol buildings in their appearanc e Should be In keeping with the Intel genes and wealth of the State but above all It Is Important that eater and more commodious offices should be provided for the

been virtually settled It seem for all time there Is no reason for futher lay i believe there Is no doubt now that the Iapltal location Is permently settled to Frankfort The conflIcting claims ot rival cities would In the future as they have in the past ways prevent the removal from here This therefore thee proper time for the General Assembly to make provIs Ion for the erection or a new capitol not an extravlgant one but one that will be a credit to Kentucky and a source or pride to aU her citizens The State is better able now than then t build a new capitol Isulgest that In any
