Circuit Judge We are authorized to Danaaaoe ttlion TIIURMAN of Washington cant a date for Circuit Judge the district the oounlea or Greea Taylor sad ington subject to the action of the Democratic party It took the Spectator a long time to locate its Republican Goebelites but just as the cur tain was about to fall at Somer set just at that opportune time when it was as plain as the noon day sun that Mr Hunter was doomed to fall before the inter ference of Federal machine meth ods and under the prrssue of The News its editor stepped on deck announced for Edwards and gave one big whoop for the newborn statesman of Laurel county Every body knows that its editor is an apostle of righte ous methods that he has fought for pure politics as only a true statesman and brave and cour ageous editor could It is true that it took some time for him to discover and locate the perpetra tor of frauds but being in close touch with the course of events standing as it were so to speak with one arm around the wily statesman from Cumberland and the other over the shoulder of the Sundayschool politician of Laur el with an acute ear to catch the wireless messages of bothma chines he tumbled tumbled in a hasty march for the logcabin candidate His arduous labors to set country above party would lose its golden hue would blur a spotless record by merely stick ing to a Republican nominee with out the knowledge of an untaint ed claim No sacrifice is too great no investigation too teH- ous and no cause too perilous for him when determined to estab lish justice to save his party and country and to prosecute fraud He has fought Goebelism hard er than any other GREAT editor gone up against machines with the courage of a Roman Gladiator has suffered persecu tions doubtless for the sake of truth and defended with all his ability the innocent when ac cused of great crimes He pic tured the woe that would follow the election of the State Demo cratic ticket and fully and ably proclaims the calamity that will come to our nation should the Democratic nominees be elected Selfsacrificing as pure and righteous as Addix of Delaware and as able and spotless as Dick Knott of the Louisville Post he has won his spurs in one of the r greatest cavalry charges ever t made in defense of pure politics and scored a record that can not be punctured by all of the artil regularitytt winners rind abl and courageous r ly points the erring politicians to the haven of peace goodwill and victory In speaking of Hunter last week he said Let us bury this aposple of fraud this follower of William Goebel so deep under the avelanche of balI lots that no man in our party will ever again undertake to override the will of the majority in Ken tucky Goebelism has crept into our own ranks Let us cast it out root and branch Does that mean that Hunter and his supporters are marked for the po litical slaughter pen unless theyI bow to the nominee of the Feder al machine Now Mr Editor it is immaterial to us who rides in the Republican band wagon who steals a nomination or who buys it in the g o p but you sought in the beginning to place The News in a position that would bring it to the level with your shifting tactics and thus feel that you had company Our reply was pointed and emphatic leaving you in your floundering position In your efforts to get away from the original proposition consistency you have sought to precipitate a great debate on national issues between two pub lications you standing as the headlight of one of the most re nowned journals in our entire country Surely your challenge was the product of irritation and not of your calm and deliberate moments for evidently you would have foreseen the upheaval thatI would likely follow in the politi cal world With the war in the East and a great conflict in Amer ica for political supremacy to engross the minds of the people we respectfully decline to be a party to a discussion that would furth er arouse and distract our people You are waring for pure politics and we are merely trying to get information You have stated that you would not support a fraudulent nomination We want to know how you can determine the good from the bad in the HunterEdwards rake off You are aware of the fact that the money of Federal officeholders run the gauntlet on you Hunter people in this county excuse us you are now on the other side of the Taitse river burning bridges in your last jssue but i necessary to recross its raging waters we believe you are the stuff but you know that the il legal use of money was a factor in securing votes If the pur chasing of votes is right we we would like to know if not why do you not condemn such debauchy You made no kick against the illegal use of money the most potent power in de bauching the American voter and the most formidable obstruc tion against true merit with men of moderate means If Mr Ed wards nomination does not have the stamp of the dollar the how was it secured If Hunter as you say is an apostle of fraud then what is Edwards Did you believe that the Edwards crow treated Mr M R Yarberry righ- when he went to meet the Cor- mittee in London He state that he was the victim of threats that for safety he left that town on first train and when passing through it that evening was no tified not to be seen for his own safety and he took passage in a Jim Crow car Did that foreshadow the righteousness of Ed wards nomination Again do you endorse the action of the State Central Committee in its in terference with the district committee at Somerset Had it a right to interfere What about Bell countys vote Do you know that fraud was alone committed by the Hunter people in Bell You denounced the committee that gave Hunter the certificate and then the next issue smooth td it over Were you right in the denouncing or the smoothing Tell the whole story The News will debate calf prosperity and sheep activity with you just as soon as you correct the evil trend of Republicanism in this district We have always admired that open contrite spirit that actuated doubting Thomaswhen he saw the nail prints he exclaimed My Lord and my God The ElizabethtoWn News has started out to drive whisky from its town and the indications are that it will succeed in its noble work The striking of Mrs Car ry Nation in that town by a saloon keeper will also make many- Pf91ilbltion votes r The New York Convention adjourned DemocraticI ga last Wednesday er nominating by unanimous ac tion a State ticket headed by Justice D Cady Herrick Albany for Governor Justice
