Democratic nominee for the office of United States Senator The Democratic party has a ma jority in the coming Legislature but whether hate and envy can defeat the party nominee only time can tell In speaking of the last few weeks of Gov Beckhams ad minstrrtibn however the Even ing Post desires to refer to the pe culiar stress under which Gov Beckham has been and to state the fact that he has borne the pressure well Gov Beckham is the party nominee but the party majority in the Legislature is small Therefore every Democratic legislator felt called upon to ask him for something during the last days of his adminstration Most of these requests were for pardons and in many cases they amounted practically to demands Gov Beckham was frequently told that unless he granted certain parons he would lose votes For instance the Courier Journal the newspaper most active in opposing the Governor tells us that when Mr Becknam declined to grant a pardon to a prominent citizen of Lexington he lost one Democratic vote All this is distinctly to Mr Beckhams credit Although a candidate he refused to become a parb on broker He disdained to swap pardons for yotes and whether defeated or not the fact remains that he did nothing improper during the last days of his official incumbency and this in face of the fact that he could have profited largely by improper a c tio n s Louisville Post v

consideration the fact that Hopkinsville is the recent scene of an orgy of incendiarism and lawlessness that Lexington is disturbed with the dread of like experience that the spirit which would deny to the individual the right to sell the product of his labor has shown itself at Mays ville and that thoughout the whole of the tobccogrowing districts of Kentucky life and property are at all times subject to attack the Governor mst have fully realized that there was I to be no going back when he declared The law in this State does not request but commands obedience from its servants It declares that no one shall tres pass upon the rights of another and that every one shall in peace and safely enjoy all that is his own It also covenants to all those who shall disobey the law a speedy and sure punishment and so certain that no one shall dare to risk it What measures the Governor shall see fit to employ to make good his covenant with the people of the State that the lawshall again be enforced in Kentucky and the rights of its citizens given protection in all parts of the State is a respons ibility that rests with him Louisville Times I v v THE GENTLE CYNIC One man in a thousand

this propose tion will receive the attention it deserves at this Legislative session Congressman Edwards of this district has come to the front in the aid of prohibition in offering a bill to aid States in prohibiting the sale of spiritous vinous and malt liqtfors as follows Bb it enacted byte Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assem bled thaall spiritous vinous and malt liquors transported into any gltate or Territory or remaining therein for use consumption sale Or storage therein shall upon arrival in such State or Territory be subject to the operation and effect of the laws of such State or Territory enacted in tbs exercise of its police powers to the same extent and in the same manner as though such spiritous vinous and malt liquors had been produced in such State or Territory and shall not be exempt therefrom by reason of being introduced therein in original packages or otherwise This bill is one that should en list the hearty enthusiastic and immediate support of prohibition ists Mr Edwards should not be left to fight this battle alone for it means more than any measure yet introduced In ad dition to the above Congressmen Bennett and Langley of this State have offered a bill prohib iting the Federal Government from issuing licenses in dry dis drictricts The tremendous scope and effects of such legisla tion is apparent and if the people are in earnest who have fought so effectively in the past for the suppression of liquor fail to back up the Congressmen from this State on these measures the failure if they fail must rest on stupiditydiscuss the merits of the above mentioned bills but merely to call the attention of the people to the importance of aiding in their passage The News has on I va rious occasions stated that suchr legislation was needed that it would be the strongest and most effective stroke that could be made to arrest the sale and use of intoxicants We trust that the people of this section

ever attempt to crawl through a woven wire fence with your gun cockedIAlways unload your gun whe you come to a barbed wire fence Even then it is unsafe to crawl through Hurdle it which is best done with about a fifteen yard run tunnel under it when a pocket knife will come dn handy or go around No good hunter ever shoots a rabbit when quail hunting ex 4 cept as a favor to the owner of the land abbits nibble green corn stalks in the spririg of the year and otherwise damage crops If fouare entirely sure that you killed a bird and the dog cant find it catch him and beat him over the ears with your fist This always increases his imagi nation which is just as essen tial in a hunting dog as in the master Always leave a male anda fe male out of every large covey to provide a brood for next sea son It dont make so much difference about the small coveys Never allow a dog to ride in the wagon A dog is not fit to hunt unless he has to run at least ten miles before he goes into the field He ou tog run equally as far after the hunt to keep him from cooling off too quicklyNever start out without a bot tle of ipecac Most of the snakes are in their holes but you might encounter one that hadnt found his or hers respectively Never start out with a gun weighing over nine pounds By night it will be heavy enough for any kind of game to be found in these parts The carrying power of a quail is double its own weight This means that it can fly away with six or seven ounces of No 8 shot If a man refuses to let you hunt on his land invite him out 1behind the barn and ask him if he wont have a little Remember that statistics show that fully one half the game kill ed cannot be found Remember also that the birds are very small and the guns double choked this year so that it is not as easy to kill forty nine with fifty shells as it was three years ago this fall If there are four in the party and a single bird gets up no more than two should shoot at it More than two loads of shot are likely to mutilate it making it difficult to divide equitably People usually need that of which they have the least Adair countyneeds good roads and a trip over the county in the early spring will

cowardice of the courts the failure of officers to do their duty and the contemptable dem agoguery of politicians that al lowed the perpetrators of the outrage committed at Princeton about a year ago

maskedriding into the city of Hopkinsville dynamiting pro erty intimidating the people shooting up the town Great as the outrage is shamelesly as it was conducted it was but the natural outgrowth of the failure of the law to punish minor offense of similar nature that has been going on in that section for a year No greater crime has ever been committed in Kentucky than the one at Hopkinsville ItI is a crime aginst the age we live in against civilization It is a crime that brings the blush of shame to the cheek of every honest Kentuckian It must be the parting of the ways Either anarchy and lawlessness must rule and every man with force must protect his own rights the Court Houses be torn down and courts abolished or else there must be a reign of law and the felons and outlaws who committed this crime not against the tobacco trust but aginst the State of Kentucky must be brought to speedy justice Every citizen must determine now whether he will stand for law or anarchy The Society of Equity composed as it is a mojority of good men must use its utmost efforts to bring to the bar pf justice every man in the Hopkins yule mob or stand convicted at the bar of public opinion

Millward on the floor of the convention and had failed tolive up to the promise and hadappointed Barnett Mr James said most emphatically that he hadmade no such promise and that he had not authorized anyone I else to make such a promise He Jiad however agreed to ratify J a promise made by George- Welch of Danville w h ch was to the effect that Mr Barnett was to be Fire Marshall and that in the
