writing salts tatoriea for The Blade every timo she takes a fresh start is gottinj to bo rather monotonous I will waive that formality in this in stance and make tide following oxplntmtion for the oonotit of those who now see it for the lirst time though of course the largo majority of those to uwhom it will now go are such as have known it before This is now the third tim that The Blade has started under my management and if it proves that the third time is the charm it will nut at all bo because that proverb demands this but bo caugo it goes this time on a fi nancial basis much better than it over did before rr In t1to two instances in which The Blade started before this its prospects were probably as en couraging as any paper that over started in this town and it was growing daily in favor with men and good women when stopped it and returned to its subscribers by check tho pro rata of the sub scription money that they had paid mo If you will pardon an explana tion of my private business af fairs that I think has a good moral to it you can understand how it was that I being appa rently a welltodo man did not f use my own money and go ahead with the publication of a paper h 4a tse med to be on the road to- 4Afill t1H some t8 years ego a scries of fi nancial reverses happened to me uUat once Generally I have been pretty lucky but that time I struck a regular boom in bad luck The first was that my house burned down and burned up nearly everything in itwhy the house goes down and the furniture goes up I do not know but that is the way they write itnnd I had no insurance on itIhen loaned a preacher that I had ordained myself some monoJand ho used it to run oft with another mans wife and wrote the a letter abusing me like a dog and of course I lost it I hope that motley will be set to my account by the recording an heavenThen I went security for a largo amount and lost heavily form means but that has been kindly repaid mo in the last few yearsThen I built a flour mill in Lexington mild bought a little one in the county and lost on both of them Then remembered tho scrip tural precept that says He that housephold is worse than a heathen Chinee or something like that and so I paid all my debts pock eted all my losses and gave ev erything I had excepting lot in the cemetery hero tp mywife and children against tho protests r of the former and to tho kind and generous regrets of tho latter at this dayut I believed I was right and am now glad of it but of course under such cir cumstances any honest man and they say I am built that way would bo very chary about getting into his hands tho money of other people The first series of The Blade was in tho interest of good mor abstractIllsIts style of presenting things was not as sedate and serious as tho average Sunday school jour nal and I succeeded in sugar coating stern morals with some essays at humor and which more front tho contrast with the t ordinary way of advocating mor ale than any intrinsic merit in them made a good many peoplo laughand my article against profane and legal swearing as illustrated by my experience with a calf that got into m sweet potato patch was a literary ten strike such as I never expect to make again now that my powers of depiction aro growin into the sear and yellow leaf of senility One cause of my discouragement with tho first issue of The Blade was an onslaught I mad on Sam Jones Sam was in the zenithof his popularity I knew lio was a fraud and a snare nnd a dead beat and a bodysnatchei and I was fool enough to say sc There were lots of these old re ligious hypocrites and piou frauds who have not half as mud religion as a hearse horse am who always want to make themselves solid Muldoons with th sanctified by skinning some fel low whose religious notions an out of the beaten path All of these fellows had beet watching mo from the first issue of The Made as they know my weakness and as soon as Ibounc ed Sam they swarmed all over me like bumble bees in a hayfleld harvest before last Now how ever I can blast him and old Talmago too and make friends by it though both of them arc outspoken Prohibitionists They are both for the boodle and I have got more real Simonpure reli gion in my heart and in my brain than a regiment of such cattle That sounds like egotism Thutf what is was intended for If I were going to amend tho Ser mon on tho Mount I would add to tho list of tho beatitudes Blessed is he that blowoth his own trumpet for verily I say unto vor MiLO blowoth not hi own trumpet his trumpet shall not be blown The trouble with me as my friend and neighbor and backer Major Thomas suggests is that I am a little previous in all my ideas I have pretty spectablc company in that kind of martyrdom Colonel Billy Brcckin ridge once walked around here for a year or so looking as mournful as if his motherinlaw was dead because ho was so im prudent as to tell too long before hand that tho negroes would some day testify in our courts- I was fired oil time staff of The Press hero once for blowing up oM Talmago and that and my tirade against Sam Jones put mo ardor an ecclesiastical han from which I am just now emerging with tho best preachers in Lexington backing me though I mvo orally and in writing more openly professed my fealty to Jesus of Nazareth than any man iu tho city who did not get paid for doingso Before I forget about it I want to say that tho giving of my property to my wife and children while it would probably have loft me somewhat in the soup had I been loft a widower with marry ing proclivities some years since is now such a source of comfort- to mo that I commend it to ethers My second series of The Blade was still in time interest of good morals but with Prohibition as a basal principle my oxporicco being that liquor was tho source jf an immense percentage of tho immorality and consequent unhappiness of our laud This present issue starts out in that same line of thought with ill of my former convictions in tensified by what has occurred since Bladtu last suspension- I do not believe that any jour nalist in tho State ever had as singular an experience as I did when I last hung up The Blade with tears in anyeyes and heart and wont back to digging and plowing tho ground Preachers and College Presi lenta and Professors tho most earnest Christian men and women and the most intolligoi Rationalists men and women and some of whoso politics or religion I as yet know nothing also racehorse men and also the only man connected with any loon in Lexington who has tho entree to good society with the proprietor of the biggest and fittest distillery in tho Bluegra region so far as Iknow all can to mo and proposed to help me with their money and every one of them except one to whom I have not applied because I did not think it was right to take a distilleYs money and use it as stick to break his own head hns put up his money like a littl man as he said ho would when I wont to them to get the stock for tho Company which now backs The Blade Tho newspaper fraternity like everybody else are liars when it is to their interest to lie so that I will give samples of all of these who are easily accessible and may be consulted by those who unt to see if there is nay stuffing in statementAmong there aro Reverends McQarvy and Mathews the first presiding as Chair man of the

myconments The New Coal 011 Inspector Judge P P Johnston yesterday ap pointed Mr Chas B coal oil of Fayetto succeed Mr W L Yellman whoseime expires on the 13th inst Mr Gilman has lived in Lexincton mallY yearsland is thoroughly identified with an enterprising gentlemanquestion He has a large number of friends in all parts of the city and coun ty and his appointment will give general satisfaction In fact no better man could have been selected for the place The appointment comes in the nature of a very great compliment considering the number of gentlemen who placeJudge nack of acceptablelias fairly outdone himself Mr Gilman will make a faithful ollicer and the com JudgeJohnstonMr Gilman the happy subject of the foregoing eulogy is a loonkeeper on the corner of Mill and Water Streets His business house is adjacent to that umbra geous contiguity the moral atmos phere of which is such that Alder men Treacy and Si in rail have lately proposed to clean it out I do not remember that I ever met Colonel Gilman to know him in my life In this from the Transcripts account of him I seem to have been unfortunate- As a newspaper man I have frequently had occasion to meet peo ple in their private houses and also at public gatherings in very handsome surroundings as the parlors of the Phamix Hotel for instance who were met for the purpose of ting up the charity institutions 3ofour cityor to arrange about lectures or music or schools or art galleries or libraries or supposehowever a kind secondclass society with which Colonel Gilman for those little reasons that hightoned peo pIe have a right tokeep to them selves did not care to mingle else I might have had the honor of the Colonels acquaintance These people that I allude to Judgellroodward Mrs S A Charles Mrs Charlie Voorhies the bankers wife Mrs Ballardand Miss Peter and then suchmen as the Rev Dr Bartlett and Edmunson and Estin Keller and Andy Campbell and Will Sayre and others of that kind all very clever people in their proper spear as the lamented Artemus Ward used to call it but then after all that is said about mens being born equal we have to admit the filet if not the neces sity of social castes and in men as in oysters there will always be selects who like Col Gilman an eagle among buzzards will soar above the carrion crew and go to bathe his plumage in the lun Col Gilman is alluded to as a business man of the first water ifso mild a fluid may be mentioned in connection with a Lexington saloonkeeper My experience was that his methods in that line were perhaps a little peculiar I was collector for the Transcript and Colonel Gilman owded tho Trati l script 250 I eal1edat his Ifsaoon for it Somebody that I suppose was his confidential clerk reported that the Colonel was at Saratoga at the races I bowed myself out and called again The next time he was in Boston and the next in New York then St Louis Chicago Louisville Mil waukee Philadelphia Detroit Bir mingham New Orleans San Fran cisco Portland St Paul Nash ville Mexico c It was always represented that the Colonel had J t been there since I had called be fore but had just gone the day be fore I called One day I alluded to this fact as a remarkable coincidence anda great big fellow that weighed about two hundred and fifty mistaking my innocent suggestion us a reflection on his truth and ver acitysaid that I hud better get out of there p dti Lam naturally a fist walker and as I was in something of a hurry anyway he did not have occasion to repeat it Of course I did not go Jack but as a business transaction t l I tried afterwards to estimate how much that 250 bill had cost the Transcript Iwas getting 65 a month I calculated that the time spent on Colonel Gilman cost the Transcript 15and cost me individually 15 cents wear oft a 3 pair of shoes There were other saloons that owded the Transcript but I never had any trouble with the others the liquidatingSmithwould start out about twelve oclock every night They would pass by Gus Jaubcrts because he Judgebeingbo afraid of Jauberts samples But they would start in at Tobe Lees he being a nigger and they would go ahead until they would get even on seventyfive or a hundred lines of locals at five cents a line but by the time they would get down to Colonel Gilmans they would get 30 that they could not liquidate worth a cent and in that way the Colonel got ahead of the I do not know the Col onel as I said I hope Judge John ston will ullfcw me to join in this enthusiastic laudation that tonnes up to him from all over the country I was educated in Old Virginia and my father came from there and I know that anybody who writes F F Vnfter his name could only be actuated by patriotisminoffice and not by any reciprocity scheme like that of Brother Blaine lately in the South American mat ter it being a fact that Colonel Gilman belonging to the saloon business the most respectable and influential business in this city would be likely in turn to boost Judge Johnston when the Judge wants something better than the sinecure which he now holds llighutonedColonel been a gallon of the plebeian oil that he is to inspect but his large acquaintance with Benzine of which I hear frequent mention in saloon circles would of course give him a natural aptitude for coaloil And then the fact of the Colonels being a Democrat as the Transcript justly emphasises as an evidence of his competency shows that he must have intellec tual and educational abilities that would fit him for any emergency Ordinarily a knowledge of chemistry would be regarded as an element of competency for coal oil inspector undosome mind not so far reaching and comprehensive as that of Tud Tuli IMtonj VGuTd have appointed sonic such man as Dr Peter the most eminent chem ist in America or Dr Simrall or Overstreet or T B Wood all fessional chemists but all of these men have helped the BlueGrass Blade with their money andare consequently offensive to the sa loon element the sentiment of which latter class of society Judge Johnston is of course too considerate to offend The management of coal oil in spection to mere laymen is pecu liar Dr 11 J OMaliony a French gentleman as his name in dicates who was born in Cork was lately coal oil inspector here It would be rude for me to say that the Doctor ever gets drunk but as newpaper reporters the Doctor and I have been chums for years and I would simply say that the Doctor is an incessant and excccsive drinker His normal condition for the twenty years that I have known him has been such that he could not have told coaloil from water if he had had the whole laboratory out at the State College at his disposal At pretty regular intervals here when I have been working on these Democrat newspapers they would fire me out because I would say something about religion that would raise Cain and I would go out home disconsolate and go to workon my little farm until they would send for me again just like the Transcript did about three weeks ago to come back and try it these times I have come to town in my twohorse wagon ChessCarleyCompanys time a barrel of coal oil andone of gasoline I have gone there many times and never saw Dr OMaliony there but llanging up on the wall of ChessCarley Com panys warehouse was Dr OMa honys inspection stencilstating that this barrel had been tested and found to be of splendid proofand was all hunkydory generally anti the Doctors name was signed to the bottom and paints and brushes that we sill had to pay for were settingconvenient and any nigger on the premises could put the Doc tors sworn certificate on any bar rel in that house when the Doctor had been on a jamboree for a month and seeing snakes that double discounted the layout of the Cincinnati Zoo Knowing the Doctor intimately I did I never relied upon the statement on the head of the barrel but always stuck my nose to the bunghole to tellwhich was gasoline and which I markcoalupon them Ofcourse great corporations like the ChessCarley Company never purposely do anything wrong The people connected with them are always good and pious else they would not get so rich but it always seemed strange un der the circumstances that there was any necessity for paying Doc tor OMaliony at all But then the Doctor is an Irishman tutua Catholic and as he possiblycould not make a living any other way it would look like race discrimina tion and religious persecution not to give him an office And you know I am in a fix to sympathise with any man who is persecuted for his religious convictions While the Transcripts compli ment is a very high one to Judge Johnston and Colonel Oilman there is a little flat that I am sor ry to say throws some little suspicion on its sincerity It is simply a fact that it is a mere qucstiuuof boodle whether the Transerqft boosts the Judge and the Colonel or the reverse Not long ago when the Editor of the Transcript got wind of the fact that the BlueGrass Blade was about to be resurrected bya stock company he wrote me a postal to call and sec him His scheme was to get the BlueGrass Blade men to rut their money into the TrIm script and while he was to get sick for a month or two or go off to the Springs I the most blatant Prohibitionist in the State was to assume the tripod of the Tran script and inaugurate the new re gime by ripping the saloon men up the back like seven year locusts and skinning the whole Court House ring until their own mammies would not know them For a while he had the wool over myeyes and stating the case as I understood it to two of my friends Col Bob Thornton and Dr Coleman they adviser me to go into the arrangement supposing that the Transcripts Editor had earnestly repented but as soon as he suggested the boodle feature of his penitence I saw the same old racket and atlvers to my hackersIThe Transcript Editor has read Shakespeare lung he remembers that lago said to Roderigo Put money in thy purse I suppose that no man can an more earnest than I in prais ing Judge Johnston for this upI pointment of Colonel Gilman I hope soon to see the day when no man but a saloonkeeper or a drunkardor somebody is the avoved fuftudof vtuiiky cay gst any office in this citor county and I hope that Judge Johnston will appoint that kind every time In these inebriate asylums they cure old drunkards by putting whisky in their breadand meat and butter and vegetables agog molasses and pie and COme and tea and milk and water and pour ing some in their beds at night Thats the only kind of treatment that will do Lcxinglonan y goodwant drunken judges and jury men whisky swigging jailers and policemen clerks and firemen and city weighers and coal oil inspec tors with noses on them like premium beets and I want the few Aldermen and Councilmen who arc not soloonkeepers or drunkards fired out and their places filledwith men who talk English with a brogue and say them li cense for a license Judge Johnston you are my man Luck to you old fellow Sticka saloon man into every place you can You and your kind arc doing the Prohibition cause more good for the sweet byandby than a regiment of George Bains and forty Blue Grass madesofill see your wise policy through your ingenious disguise and The Blade joins with the Transcript in glory fyiug you A Baggage Lifting Machine Why not Tho Saratoga trunk hns now reached its maximum It is sp big that nothing short of an elephant is equal to the task of handling it easily Great heaps of these trunks are piled mountain high upon u wagon and then tho railroad baggago handler is expected to transfer all ton train carefully tenderly as if ho were handling eggs He does not do it of course ho could not if he were an angel instead of a man and ho gets abused on all sides Tho baggago smasher wears out al most as soon as the trunks ho is thought to take a fiendish delight in breaking No mortal Ulan can endure tho strain of lifting hundreds of huge unwieldy trunks day after day year after year and no mortal man ought to be expected- to stand it Somo sort of lifting machine ought to be rigged to raise trunks from the ground into tho express wagons and then to lift them again from tho wagon at tho railway station to tho truck that carries them aboard tho train Tho machine should bo attached to tho wagon itself nnd need not weigh much It would save all tho back aching all tho back breaking and what la more tho profane language indulged in by the truck men Likewise it would save our pretty girls big trunks and they could still appear at summer resorts in all their flowerliko glory A machino of this sort ought to bo easy for some shrewd American to invent 7 jQrnntIo Lore In The Foi lun Lieut John P Finley sums up th attainments science has thus far nu

I think when my friends understand it they will see withme that tho publication of my book has been fortunate as regards my labors in the cause of Prohibition- I have long felt a moral obli gation resting upon mo to ex press fully in print my convic tions about tho great subject of religion andnow having done compnctformcurately than I could in a news paper or in personal conversa feel disposed entirely to dismiss tho subject feeling that I can do so without any compro mise of my convictions and religiousfriends has led them frequently to express their willingness that I should entertain my convictions if I would not use tho columns of my paper to express them This last I think they may rest assured I will not do not mybooknecessity for it but because I am physicallaboraccording to my

but it will al ways bo lone in earnestness and sincerity Further than to make somo notice of my book in time future possibly for advertisement just as I would any other book this may bo regarded as a final dismissal of a question that has occasioned solicitude among my friends REV HlltAM FOIII Prohibition Candidate for Con gress for tho Seventh District At the Prohibition Convention at Georgetown September 15th Rev Hiram Ford was unanimous ly nominated as tho candidate for Congress from this district There was the greatest satisfaction ex pressed publicly and privately by the members of time Conven tionIn the judgment of THE BLADE Mr Ford is an ideal man for time position Ho is a minister in tho Christian Church and is besides a successful farmer in Scott County Ho has made a competency callinghasing tho pecuniary emoluments from his clerical labo apparently having been hut a secondary consideration lie is sixty years old but retains tho physical and intellectual vigor of a man whoso life him bean characterized by temperance sad moderation lie ia tall and sparely built dresses in good taste and is in manner and personal appearance an exceedingly attractive man As an orator ho has none of tho flashy swagger andsuper ficial ad capttindum that is in in tho two dominant par ties which is intended and calcu hated principally to influence swayedvytisanism lIe addresses himself most pleasantly and forcibly to the higher rational and moral qualities of men partinProhibition speeches The delegates who camo from tho North ern part of tho District where Mr Ford is most intimately known in their endorsement of his nomination speak of him as a man in whose morals and sound business and political judgment tho people havo such confidence that the receive with tho greatest satisfaction any measure that ho recommends The Blade not only gives Mr Ford its unqualified endorsement but asks that tho people of this country will do themselves Mr Ford and it tho kindness not to say justice to inquire about Mr Ford and see him and hear him before they next cast their votes for Congressman Wo do projudicedcandidate who will oppose him but setting down naught in malico and naught extenuating sum up tho record of the Demo cratic candidate all that is known and all that is suspected for and against him consider the moral influence ho exerts in our society and the importance of the issues to which he is wedded and then find out all about these things in tho lifo and character of Mr Ford and conscientiously vote for tho higher character and the ono whose views if carried to perfection would conduce to the greatest prosperity and happiness of our country It is simply a foregone conclusion as to what would be tho rel ative merits of tho two gentle menBy unanimous consent in the sense that rhetoric and finished diction constitute eloquence Col Breckinridge would be Mr Fords superior or the superior of almost any man in the nation but when that is said all is said that can be said for Colonel Breckinridgos side of tho ques regardMrsuperior but immensely his superior The Democratic managers here who are not the men of worth and and dignity in tho party have seemed to think that wo all ought to be happy to shine in the reflected of Colonel Breck inridgos brilliant oratory in the grertt cities of the East But when farmers looking around at the decaying farming interests of this country and men of every other department of business except professional Democratic politicians see that nil interests hero are based upon agriculture and remember that Colonel Breckinridge has only taken any part in agricultural in terests by voting for free hemp and to retain tho tariff on sugar a twoedged sword that cuts comingitwho hind made a nice fortune at farming from a small beginning ought to bo somo closer to the hearts of farmers than a man thoughhoThen add to all this the fact that while Colonel Breckinridge loft tho pulpit to bo one of sixteen Congressmen who voted to force the liquor traffic upon Kansas Nebraska Dakota and others that hadsaid they did not want the traffic in their borders while uiuety six Congressmen voted against Colonel Breckinridge mil this time Mr Ford from his pul and on his farm has patiently labored like a moralist and a Christian hero to free our State from tho liquor iniquity that Colonel Breckinridge wants to uphold though he knows that whisky has debauched his con freres who with him represent us Washington and is making tho very namo of Kentucky a hissingand a byword in the mouths of properthinking men from Maine to Texas If the people would rebuke this cowardly and infamous pandering to tho girt slingcrs that Colonel Brcckinridges voto sig nifies by defeating him over whelmingly by this hightoned

Democrats as have given their money to support this paper have in memory run ovor the record of Commonwealths Attorney Bronston when they have selected him lately to sent us in the present Constitu

only to street talk this community might be pardoned for the sanction of his course that they have expressed by the honors repeatedly heaped upon him But they have been published in the Democratic newspapers of this city and The Blade in its whilom career here has told of others in no uncertain termsIt thoroughly distasteful to me to revive and revamp these but as a citizen of this Commonwealth I feel humiliated and disgraced and that this man lies his foot upon my neck and I propose to use every just and honorable means not only to release myself from tho ignominious thraldom but so to set him in the right light before this peo ple that so far from being sent to represent us in Washington as has iieen proposed against the immaculate Sweet of the silver tongue Mr Bronstou aforesaid shall not be able to get the position of oflicial dog pelter in the city of Lexington Men will often talk when they will not back their sentiments with their money but men who are backing The Blade will use their tongues with half the earnestness and liberality that they have their money the day will be when even such poor abandoned wretches as Will Hib ler and W D and Rev erends Felix and Mathews and Beattyand Bain and Imen whose sin has been that they believed in Prohibition will at least have such political influence as to demand that our votes shall be recorded for the men for whom we vote and those of Kev Mathews and Pro hibition Chairman Ilibler shall not be made to endorse Saloon keeper Sullivan on time dirty floor of whose saloon the blood of a murdered man was scarcely dry There is no

of its practicability and a coward according to the code of the coutr in which I live I am not so whitelivered as to be afraid to maintainn my convictions at any cost In time fiftytwo years o my life

remember in my own defense that when others stood back through fear I swum for a drowning man that I lac never seen before and when we got ashore I was almost ns near lendas he was but I saved him It is embarrasing in these day ofexpensive funerals for a who like me has not a life insu rance policy to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth but until some fellow scares me worse

time ca reer of Mr Bronnton which more than other has antagonized the scttJjuttont of justice in the minds of fho people of this county is his recent participancy in the election that voted a rah road tax upon this community Time cry of Democracy hitherto has been thn it was necessary to buy the negro vote in order to keep time Republicans out of pow er Now however Mr Bron ston is generally recognized as having been time ringleader of that faction of the Democratic party which has bought the votes of negroes and other nontax paying persons in order to foist upon the taxpayers of this county a tax for the building of a railroad in which it is generally understood ll undisputed that Mr Bronston and his satelitos are all stockholders It is n tenetlof the most com petent of Democratic thinkers that tho Fifteenth Amendment that gave the suffrage franchise to the negro was a political enormity is the consensus of the competsut of almost every school that the stpolitical polity would limit rather than extend the suffrage franchise and yet Mr Bronston while claiming to be an exponent of Democracy is not only willing that the negro should vote but he selects time most degraded of them to do the voting and through his emissaries makes them drunk so that they will have oven less than their ordinary e7 and then paJs- them to vote against the almost solid protests of the verymen who give and dignity to the Democratic party If these gentlemen ever again do anything to promote Mr Bronstons polit ica success or connive at it in others they are fools than Thompsons coitand are of free menTho disgraceful details of this manipulation of time ne roes against the taxpayers of time county will bo reserved for a chapter in a subsequent issue of The Blade I am a railroad man and am willing to pay my part of the tax that may bo voted to build them when such tax is voted by those who will have to pay the tax but there is no safety for the business interests of the county and city when a ring of this kind with one of their number in the Legislature to put through any kind of a wishes to declare a divideudambng them selves by voting a railroad subsidy on the people or any other kind of a scheme that they may devise and to carry t it is only necessary for them to roll a few barrels of whisky from their private stores or from time common fund of the party and send around their
