permitted to say that in our little town the lid is on not only on unday but every day in the week In fact we claim the distinction that we were the first town in the State to put the lid on and the better part of it is w have kept it on for more than the third of a century With such a record we cannot listen with complacency to the proposition coming from the metropolis of our State that the com manclment from God himself Remem ber the Sabbath day to keep it holy in- it tbbu shalt do no work does not ap ply Jto our firstclass cities We entertain the belief that this lV which antedates all statutes is citiesethentind a statement to the contrary would seem amusing ifit were not so seriously presented We are not however without points of attraction and interest in our town Here facing one

Columbia Speech Flogardless of Politics the People of Arialr and Surrounding Counties Honor Their Governor His Tribute to the People of the Mountains s Was Especially Pleasing to His Hearers Columbia Ky Sept 9Before an audience of several thousand people representative of this immediate SilO tion of the state Governor Beckham this afternoon made his first speech in the Democratic state campaign Feeling honored by a visit from the governor of the commonwealth the people of Adair and the surrounding counties regardless of politics gave him a very hearty welcome His speech was vigorous from the begin ning to the close and was well received His tribute to the people of the mountains was especially pleas ing to his hearers He declared dur Ing the course of his remarks that he would be glad to leave the governors chair on the expiration of his term and asked that God and the patriotic citizenship of Kentucky grant ibst his successor be Judge S WrHager who stands firmly and Without equiv ocation upon every issue and who swill give to the Jsbple a wise and ecSasnilcal administration of their folatYairL lowsYou will readily agree with me that it is better to judge of what a man will do by what he his done in the past than by what he says he will do and that you can better forecast what a party will do in the future by its record in the past than by the prom ises of its platform and of its candi dates If a man convicted of perjury or false swearing makes a statement or a promise we may well be on our guard with him and discredit whatever he might say If a party which has come before you in the past mak ing fair promises and uttering serious charges against its opponents and when given power by you has violated those promises and signally failed to make good those charges comes again making the same promises and charges it is well to look upon it with doubt and fear before again giving it a chance to betray you Let us see in what attitude each of these two political parties stands be fore you in this campaign in the light of its past record its promises and its performances By that test alone it is fair to judge between the two and by that test speaking for my party I ask that the people of Ken tucky pass judgment In the November election What the Republican Party Promised i In 1895 the Republican party placed at the head of its ticket as candidate for governor Hon W O Bradley then as now the dominant and con trolling force in his party in this state In their platform and in the speeches of their candidates they made the most extensive and fulsome promises of what they would do if elected to the offices They i promised the moral 1 political and industrial regeneration of Kentucky They promised a new era Im the states progress and develop ment that the laws would be strictly enforced and that peace and content ment would everywhere prevail They made the gravest possible charges against the Democratic party and Its conduct of the states affairs They charged eXtravagance and corruption and with the battle cry Give us a look at tilt hooks they made their t campaign Democratic leaders refuted these charges and warnedTthe people that It would be disastrous Ito place the Republican party in control In this state or In any Southern state that it believed in force and fraud andjii the subordination of the civil to the military power But in vain were the charges denied and these warnings 1uttered Many people were deceived and misled Suspicions were created mlsmanagejIadministration Unfortunate dissen lions arose in the Democratic party and the Republican ticket with a Re jpubllcan legislature was elected the staterr vvn December of la90 and January 1816 they came into possession of the state government and for over four rjrears held it Wherein Republican Administration Failed r In that dark and fateful period what a record was iaadel For incapacity rmismaiiiif mentandNdiss8t r It hasInever been QuaHad jn this r F I Their campaign cry fora loose ar im books was answered and for over four years they had ample time to look at them But never were they able to find a single cent pf the peo ples money not properly accounted for Not a vestige of fraud or cor ruption upon the part of the previous Democratic administration could they discover heir campaign charges were shown to be false and Insincere just as they are now What did they do toward pbuilding and advancing the welfarr of the state Nothing whatever but to turn back for at least i generation the deal that marked ite progress and development Every fairminded Republican will admit that it was the moat turbulent period In the commonwealths history with the possible exception of the time of the Civil war In place of the bread they promised you they gave you a stone Instead of the new era of peace and prosperity about which they prated so much in the campaign they establish ed a red carnival of military usurpa tion and bloodshed The new admin istratioif had pot been in power three months whet the Republican gover nor called Into active service the state militia and placed it in control of the General Assembly of the state then in session There was absolutely po necessity for such an arbitrary and unwarranted exercise of power It was an unconstitutional effort upon the part of one branch of the government to intimidate and control the action of a coordinate branch A mem ber of the General Assembly could not enter the capitol without the permission of a military officer The whole purpose of it was to force the election of a Repubjltean to the United States senatetomIn numerous other Instances n s the same flagrant use made of the rnifta and in the state election of 1899 whe W S Taylor was the Republican nominee for governor this same Republican governor in his desperate desire to aid in Taylors election called into active service state troops In the city of Louisville on election day In order to intimidate and influence the voters During that entire administration law lessness and crime were rampant Night Riders and Clay County Re called Republican leaders now try to re fleet upon the Democratic administra tion by referring to the Breathitt coun ty troubles and the reports about the night riders Let them go back to the time when they were in control and refresh their memories about the tollgate raiders and feudal wars in some of the counties Let them read the messages of their governor to the General Assembly to see his lurid pictures of lawlessness and crime at that time If It was not fair to hold him responsible for the tollgate raiders the Clay county feud and other sim ilar outbreaks it certainly is not fair to hold a Democratic governor respon sible for the Breathitt county and other such troubles One of the chief reasons for which the Republican gov ernor in 1897 called an extra session of the General Assembly was to get more power to stop lawlessness in the Record of 18991900 in Kentucky Then in December 1899 with the use of the military at the polls fraud ulent tissue ballots in many counties corruption and force in the election there came into temporary power Taylor and his bloody cohorts Confronted by his Democratic opponent with a constitutional contest before the Gen eral Assembly he filled the state cap ital with an armed and desperate mob Realizing the hopelessness of his case he became reckless and murderous From a window in the executive build- Ing not forty feet from where he sat nervously awaiting the fatal sound there was fired the shot which struck down in mortal agony the man whom he could not defeat in a legal or con stitutional way Almost instantly armed troops kept In concealment ready for this awful event swarmed into the capitol grounds took possession of the buildings under orders from the Republican governor guarded all the entrances and drove back the civil officers who sought to enter and arrest the murderers And yet they tell us it is persecu tion to attempt to bring to trial the man who directed all these move ments who admits that he was only forty feet from where the fatal shot was fired and prohibited the civil of ficers from coming in to make tn search He suspended the writ of habeas corpus He issued his proclamation adjoiningthe legislature to London without tlie slightest authority of law He had Sto JiCwJess soldiery using their bayonets to Grave the senators and representatrjriiiB from their halls and chase them ikrovfh the streets of Frankfort like ja I1ttJ of felons forcibly preventing them iI meeting any theirUveleave the capital and lb to the city of Louisville where they might hold their sessions He sent k adjutant general with a lawless iM4 to the Capital hotel where WllrMiif Goebel lay suffering with thee agoKJferpf his cruel wound that by their on fciurhfftr arid lheri undlnciIrlr P t j t apr ns upon the brick pavements tney might disturb the last hours of the dying man He made it necessary for the Court of Appeals to abandon their courtroom and seek safety in the city of Louisville He made It dangerous for any man woman or child to walk upon the streets of the capital city fugitivetriumph to Kentucky with a pardon before trial in his pocket if Mr Will son and the Republican ticket are elected in November Willson Would Pardon W S Taylor This is the man too whom a Re publican state convention only a few years ago after he had done all these things Indorsed for his resolute and patriotic course This IK the raaa who Mr Willson says was resolute and patriotic whom Mr Willson supported in 1899 and supports now If he has ever changed his opinion ht has not said so- Ts he any better than Governor Bradley his mentor and chief ad- visor Is he any better thansTaylor whose resolute and patrlotie course he has indorsed Can we expect more of him than we could of Governor Bradley or of W S Taylor If so will he please explain to the peo ple in that respect he differs from them or by what process of purifica tion he has been made better than they were He cannot answer by re tailing some exploded slander or base less falsehood about the Democratic administration He must come to the point direct The people have no toleration for dodging or equivocation He must either defendthe adjnlmstra tions of Governor Bradley and Taylor Dr repudiate them And he cannot do either without confessing the futility of his candidacy and the absurdity of his claim x JJXyi relieve him somtJWliat of his embarrassment and answer I tfey him He will not deny that my ansyver1s- correct He does indorse these titr men and if elected governor hn would show his indorsement by trying to send one to the United States senate and bring the other a free man back to Kentucky Something on financial Conditions Now let us look at the financial condition of affairs when that party took charge in January 1895 and tliecof dition when they went out in ICeb ruary 19Uf1 r The Republican auditor stated that he found a debt of 1800000 with cash in the treasury amounting to 15373438 leaving a net debt of 64626562 Taking their own figures about which there is much question and it Is probable that they overstated the amount the fact remains that the debt which they found was not as great as the debt which they left in February 1900 for a statement from the auditors office shows that on Feb 26 1900 when the Democrats took charge of tiiat department the total liabilities amounted to 200299187 with 36333457 cash in the treasury leaving a net debt of 169905730 a greater amount than the debt which they say existed when hey first took charge It therefore appears that not withstanding their increase of the tax rate ten cents and issuing bonds for which they received nearly 540000 all done for hey avowed purpose of paying off the state debt they left the state In beavlerdebt than they found it They charged this debt to what they called Democratic extrava gance not explaining to the people that the preceding Democratic administration had begin burdened with extraordinary demands upon its re sources owing toy the long session of the Constitutional the unusually long iscission of the general assembly of 119vlr293 made neces sary for the purpose of a revision cS- fall our laws4n accordance with the new constitution In order to pay off this debt as they claimed they called an extra session of the general assembly in 1S97 and secured the passage of acts to enable them 16 issue bonds for 500 000 for whiejravthey received about 540OGfO andJ increase the tax rate from 42 den on the one hundred 1dollars cents Democratic members votf Yfor these measures because they Md patriotism above partisanship andlid not want to em barrass the financial affairs of the commonwealth nierely to secure a par ty advantage Republicans Increased the State Debt What was the result The bonded debt of the state was doubled making It 1000000 the tax ratewas raised to the highest point in the slates history all done they said to pay off debts and yet after their four years of power they left the state with a bigger debj than they found it In those four years and two months of power they appropriated only 187r 000 for public improvements while the Democratic administration since It came into power with a reduced tax rate has paid off all the debt it inherited from the Republican administration made Kentucky 0e of the four or five states in the Uaa which have no debt and appropriated over 2500000 for public Impwfments and in tie establishment ari4 ifa ment of our institution SI- n the bill bynrnich thtf licnl 1Yi t r r administration raised the tax rate to 52 M cents they provided that at the end of their term the tax rateshould fall 5 cents or be 471h cents under which rate we lived for two years when in 1902 the general assembly raised It to 50 cents the present rate Consequently when we Came Into con trol in February 1900 we found a reduced tax rate seriously cutting down our revenues at a critical time and a debt of about 1700000 facing- us What Democracy Has Accomplished What have we done under such dis astrous conditions With the whole state in disorder and chaos we calmly went to work while our enemies bit terly assailed and obstructed us and we tried to bring order out of an archy solvency put of bankruptcy Whether or not we succeeded let the records speak In the place of mob rule we reestablished the authority of the courts of justice Instead of plunging the state into a bloody civil warfare we calmly and patiently awaited tile constitutional determination of our cause before the judicial tribunals We suf fered much and we bore much Hav rug won out in every court from the circuit court of Kentucky to the supreme court of the United States we started out In an honest and business like way to deserve the confidence placed In us and to uplift Kentucky from the fearful condition in which Republican misrule had left her We wiped out the state debt We theyIWe enlarged and improved every pub lit institution in the state all of which were Ina most deplorable condition when we took charge plaq4j them upon the best basis ever bef Ka- known and equal to those in the most progressive states in America Kentucky is the most generous state of all In the appropriation of her revenues which she gives to the cause Of education Ou of her 50 cents tax rate she gives 2fti cents to the pub lic schools and normal schools one half cent tq the state college and 2 t cents to the sinking fund to pay the Interest on schobf bowls making 29 cents to that caused Jeaving only 21 cum ts for all the generaiexpenses of Jhe commonwealth in all of its branches and its public institutions Many of the counties of the state have a higher rate than that for their coun ty expenses In a few years with the present progress if the Democrats party Is continued in power we will have a school system equal to the best in the country Can anyone point toa single thing done by the Republican admInistra tion for the benefit of education The only thing it did was in 1899 when the state campaign was onand it padded the figures and created a large deficit In the fund the following year in order to show as large a per capita as possible for the campaign New Capitol a Fine Structure We have nearly finished a new cap itol building costing for the completed structure one million and a quarter of dollars In beauty and inagnifi cence it is unquestionably the hand somest capitol to be found in any of the Southern states It will be ex celled by few if any of the other cap itol buildings in the country It will not he Interior in architecture and beauty to the new Pennsylvania cap itol built by a Republican i adminis trationat a cost of 13000000 When compared to the cost per cubic foot of every capitol built In the past gen eration in any state the Kentucky capitol has cost less than any in fact only about half of what the Jowest in other states have cost It Is pronounced by all who have seen it as a superb structure and splendidly built To the criticisms of our enemies we need only answer Go and look at it The marvel Is that so much could have been done and done so well for the money used When completed in a few months It will bea building worthy of the pride of our people and of the admiration of all who behold it The Republican candidates in their scarcity of campaign material have tried to revive a miserable old slander about the employment of an architect That question has been thoroughly met and answered before the people The building cost 1250000 and the site nearly 40000 making 1290000 cost qf site and structure We shall pay the architect who designed and planned who constantly superintends and watches its construction 51000 for his services or barely 4 per cent of the cost Every other state paid its architect 5 per cent That is what the government and every other con cern pays a firstclass architect Mr Willson borrows an old false hood for use in his campaign which haslong since been exposed about a certain man who offered to furnish plans for a capitol at 16000 and that our board turned down his proposition We did and we would do it again if the matter was before us If this man should offer to do it for nothing we would not accept It because his rec brd in Texas and elsewhere shows that he was dishonest and a rapt The report of the Texas oa commission- tells how be tried to that state as the architect ott titol Mr t f J 0 JtJf1 wiuson Knows iflejseoro 01 mo eery f j and I am surprisldO learn that he 1 1 thinks Myers ought to have been l r chosen If he was governor and My ti r tters Is his kind of chi ct and he is trMyerss kind of governor then we lt might liave had in Kentucky a similar ublicanhnilf ca + y Itol of PennsylvaniatYRepublican Campaign One of Lies In every campaign where I have met them the Republican candidates have seemed to be by thejoverwhelming convifction that a false hood told to a hundred people was the best campaign argument if only fifty of them should ever hear the correction of it De eated every time when they have made such a fight it is surprising therefore that they have not profited by experience and pitched this campaign upon a higher plane He and his associates have been far back in the mountains trying to impose these wellknown slanders upon the good people there Two others especially have they used one about the public printing work and the other about fee paid to attorneys In places far frojh the railroads isolated and hard to reach they havo repeated these charges hoping that no Demo cratic speakers or representatives would ever get there to cnrraot the false impressions In the mountain county of Letcher where it is a days horseback ride from the county seat to a railroad be told with earnestness and vigor that these Democrats at Frankfort had agreed to pay the architect 85000 when he knew or ought to have known such to be untrue fte or his companion candidates in an effort to catch some Confederate voters told that it- the was a Republican member oT General Assembly who introduced the bill to establish the Confederate Home when they knew or ought to have known that the records showed such to be untrue 4 Many other similar instances could lie namFfl They have repeated the Old charge about extravagance in the whenp L they know that a Republican attorney Renerul approved the bill about which th complain that a legislative in vesligatii g committee completely ex oner ed the members of the board from ejl blame and reported that ev- erYthing had been done in acogrdamco with the law and the contrscfl ani that the tate fiscal court by its deci sion had also vindicated the ncttda of the board Owing to the large in crease in Lire public business of the xtate a sreatdeaJ more printing has been needed hnder tnYs administration than under the Republican admini3 tration and yet the average dst un der that was greater than it hasbeen under this The annual average cost during their term was 4618106 w tiler C the annual average under eight years of Democratic administration even in l cluding the 28000 about which they complain has been 1361315 showing 256791 less per year under Demo crat6 than under Republican administration At no time in its history has the states printing been done so cheaply as it has been under the Dem ocratic administration On some items of the contracts the public printer makes a good profit on his work on many others he has to do it at a loss It is not fair therefore to pick out cer tain items upon which he makes a profit and judge of the whole by that Reviewing Already Exploded Charges Another of these old charges which they have resurrected to do service for them in this campaign is in regard to the payment of attorneys fees They accuse us of extravagance in the 3 matter and seek to mislead and de ceive the people about it They re cently stated at Maysville that we had paid out 159000 in attorneys fees I shall be fairer than they are and tell them that we paid out more than that The records show that since I became governor we have paid out for that purpose 17390214 But to make up that amount they have to put in the fee he paid Captain Calhoun of 7119995 for collecting the old Civil war claims amounting to 1324OOOI which has been explained so often and so fully to the people that I shall not take up time with It now It has been shown that Kentucky through Captain Calhoun collected her claims at less cost than that paid by any other state for similar collections that the fee paid was a little over 5 per cent while no other state paid less than 10 per cent and some of them as high as 25 per cent So its has been in all the collections he has made for Kentucky or Kentucky sol diers his fees have been less than those paid by any other state Now this fee of 7119995 was for an unusual and extraordinary collection and is not properly chargeable to this amount When subtracted from it there is left 10270219 In that amount too for which the RepiblV can candidates try to hold us account 7 a

that more capital has been invested In the state in any one year of the last four years of Democratic administration than was Invested in the entiri time that the Republicans were in power This would not happen if business people did not have confidence in the state government and in the enforcement ot the laws What has the administration done for the farmers and agricultural inter eats f More than was ever done for thorn before in air the preceding ad ministrations together It has put lift and vigor Into the agricultural depart p ment of the state and made it a living active force for

that law Washington Named Republican Ticket You have nothing to expect of the Republican ticket It was nominated from Washington by the Federal Rev enue Association The edict was sent from there that Mr Wilfcon should be nominated for governor and every opponent he had for the nomination promptly withdrew do not attack the Republican peo pie of Kentucky I believe in the honesty and patriotism of the masses of that party I have lived among them associated with them and have many warm friends among them In the many campaigns I have made frequently I have gone into strong Re publican counties and made political speeches to audiences composed of moro UonuhHeanH tban Democrats and In all of that experience have never yet met with the slightest act of dis courtesy or disrespect tram the Republican people If they did not agree with me in opinion they yet treated me with respect It is not against them that I wage this contest but against those of their leaders who have misled and deceived them It is a notorious fact that the party organization of the Republican party in Kentucky has for years been controlled by those who had at heart more the question of the distribution of fed eral patronage than the general wel fare of the party or of the commonwealth I state this proposition with out fear of successful contradiction the Republican masses of Kentucky and especially of the mountains have fared better under Democratic admin istration than they did under Repub lican administration Glad to Leave Governors Office My long term of nearly eight years as governor of this great common wealth Is drawing to a close In De cember next I shall retire from its duties and responsibilities It is best for me that it should be so for the burden of it has borne more heavily uponvme than might be supposed The office of governor is one of great honor but it is also one of great drudgery and anxiety In those nearly eight years I have worked hard and faithfully to servo my state and its splendid people By a terrible tragedy the awful responsibilities of the office fell upon me unexpectedly and sud denly I have often thought that some of my unkind critics were right when they said I was too young and too inexperienced for the situation But what I lacked in age and practice I have faithfully tried to make up In earnestness of purpose and devotion to duty With what measure of suc cess my efforts have been attended it is for the just and fairminded peo ple of Kentucky to say Without claiming any credit for what has been accomplished can at least rejoice when I turn over the office to my suc cessor in contemplating the vast difference in the condition of affairs now from what they were in the days of gloom and sorrow when I first became governor To its successors this administration will have the gratifida tion at the close of this year of pass Ing the government of the commonwealth in the most prosperous condi tion it ever enjoyed and Its people

Willson will be elected We do not censure Mr Bradley for trying to defend his acts while he was chief exec utive of the State for it was the most notoriously talked of administration ever given to the people of the Commonwealth Governor Bramlett used to be known as the War Governor of capturednthe name A crowd of about three hund dred people heard Dr Bruner Republican candidate for Secretary of State speak here last Wednesday We did not hear the gentleman but it is our un derstanding that the Republicans presant were well pleased with his speech It is but just to state that there were several hundred people in town the Louisville Conference and Circuit Court being in session The Jamestown correspondent to the CourierJournal says that about three hundred persons heard him at that

Now in order to make votes with that class of men Mr Owen Tyler the Democratic candidate for Mayor has announced that he is opposed to the Sunday closing law The best people of Kentucky want the Sabbath ob served They not only want the saloons closed on that day but the doors of all other classes of business In our judgment Mr Tyler will lose more votes in the declaration favoring open Sun

American inventor says Fully eighty per cent of the illness of mankind comes from eat ing improper food or too much food people are inclined to overindulge them selves This is where indigestion finds its beginning in nearly every case The stomach can do just so much work and no more and when you overload it or when you eat the wrong kind of food the digestive organs cannot possibly do the work demanded of them it is at such times that the stomach needs help and warns you by headaches belching sour stomach nausea and indigestion You should attend to this at once by taking something that will actually do the work for the stomach Kcdol will do this It is a combination of natural dige tants and vegetable acids and con tains the same juices found in a healthy stomach It is pleasent io take It
