encourage men to dri- nk841kuor by tolling them that when Xf they want to the habit can take alewdo3es ofa wonder ful medical preparation that has lately been discovered by a Dr Keeley showed himself fraud and humbugbY claiming that the secret was known only to himself andrefusing to divulge it to any If one else Ifa man could discover a rem edy of that kind and keep it to himself he would be a brute andI any man who claims that he is keeping such a secret andrunning the risk of his dying so that the worldmight lose it proclaims himself so regardless of human L welfare that he is not to be trusted and his claim came fraught withI improbability f Prohibitionists and other ternjw nperance all seemed ognize Keeleys pretended discov cry as a fraud andof course would naturally suspect that

account from the Courier Journal is ias follows NEW YORK Nov 6Fornearly month newspapers all over this d8un try have been reprinting an article written by Col John Mines LL D1 for the October number ofthc North American Boview It was the most authoritative as well as the most interesting article that had yet appeared regarding Dr Leslie J3 Keeleys bichloride of gold cure ifor drunkenness and who proclaimedthe efficacy of the cure Hefairly shouted his joy at being cured He was now boxbisaidimdjiiLthelpassIou for drink had gone He had tested himself in every possible way but not a drop of intoxicating liquor had passed his lips since a day in April last when his treatment was begin ning at Dwight HI and when he had taken some whisky at Dr Keeleys advice Col Mines was generally accepted as the champion of the Keeley cure He was quoted from ocean to oceanthat it is hardly exaggeration to say that the faith of nearly every drunkard in the land who hopedrto be reclaimed was pinned upon the cure of this man who had been a drunkard at Intervals for twenty years Col Mines began a prolonged spree ten days ago He was foUnd drunk in the gutter on Wednesday last was committed to the workhouse on Blakwells Island and died there yesterday morning I have seen in some exchange iprescription ofa Georgia man to men who want to reform from drunkenness that 1 think jn8ITh Jc rJ lan

prize lighting and one feature of the race course Of course I would rather have had him to disclaim the race horse business in toto but what hesays refutes the charge of the Standard that he has not championed any great reform nor spoken against any of the popular vices The fact of the thing is that in this regard likeourfifthsof the Christians he is against any of the popular sins until he comes to the daddy of all the orimes the liquor traffic and thnthe Colonel flickers and bows down before the jug of Kentucky whisky that Alfred Hammer gave him just like Bro Harrison tips his hator rather

a guardian to take care of itI give a series ofoccurrences here I am in Scott that have all been within a few weeks Anegro man killed a white man He said he did it because the man a bachelor was too inti mate with his wife The negro came to Georgetown and surren dered himself for trial and was put in jail A mob of white men went to thejail took the negro out and hung him r The minute details or the hang ing have been given iuthe papers of this townwhat the men said and what they did The jailor who was in charge of the negro was not wounded or in any way hurt in his attempt to protect his prisoner Nobodyhas been arrested for that negro and there is no probability that there will be- Then the Kendalls came into town with their Win chester rifles and proceeded to shoot at men in the streets No official was hurt in any effort IJto stop them When they got through shooting there were two men killed and one badly wound ed One of the tnen killed was a very valuable citizen ot the town and was killed by a stray shot while tandi gin the door of his business house It was in the day time and in the most prominent part of the town When they were done shooting tho marshal of the town persuaded them to go to jail with him A few days after a man and woman who seemed to be respecta ble people came here to preach as Salvation army people do While they were conducti religious service just as people do elsewhere a bad tfoy threw a large cannon fire crah et into the crowd that was listening to them The boy was not arrested but the man and woman were and were promptly put in jail Several days since the Kendalls escapedTheythere seems to be no probability that they will be Somebody ought to be respon sible for this I have never be lieved that those men would fbe punished The father of those who escaped is yet in jail He killed valuable citizen I do punishedthe Democratic county committee I do not know how he will es cape punishment but it will be done somehow Another prisoner who had killed a man had es longbeforeThere has been a session of the Kendallsdidput off Thats the way itis nearly always done Soon the people will begin to say its no use to punish the poor old man since all the boys are gone and the newspapers will contain reports of his sad condi tion and distress of mind and everybody willsay he has beenl pmishedeaough by havingJ0 stay in such a bad old 0 anybody who says he has Wt been will be frowned down as a hard hearted manand when the next court comes on some j5fj the principalwfor t J commonwealth thccaza1illbe 4U ofl that time somebody else kill a few more people and the public mind will be occupied bYI the new case After a while somebody willI ask What ever became 0ColdI man Kennalls caseand the other fellow will answer Oh he was let out long ago the commonwealths witnesses could not be found and the Judge dismissed the case The Georgetown Times made an effort to Institute a moral re form here some time ago ItIturned its batteris on the small boy smoking cigarettes Four issues of the paperpourod hot shot into that enormous evil that threatens to throw this govern ment into anarchy but sentiment would not sustain the Georgetown Times and backed the small boy and the heroic ed itor retired brokenhearted andj discouraged from the unequalcon testjBut his valiant words will goI ringing down the corridorsof time and posterity will build a monument to his memory Instead two flam- beaus crossed above an urn there will be two cigarette stumps still smoking and crossed above a spittoon It makes my heart ache to see how the editor of that paper has immolated himself upon the altar poorlyhasBut virtue is its own reward Bro Briggs Still Holds the Port The Presbyterians have die missed the case against Dr Charles heresyinRESOLVED That the Presbytery ofNew York having listened to the paper of Charles A Briggs D D In the case of the Presbyterian church of the United states of America against him as to the sufficiency ofthe charges and specifications in form and legal effect and without approving of the position taken in the inaugural ad dress and at the same time desiring earnestly the peace and quiet of the church in view of the declarations of Dr Briggs touching his loyalty to the church and the Westminster stand ards and in view of his disclaimers of interpretations put on some of his words deemsit best to dismiss the case and does so dismiss it Such secular papers as the Times Heraldand Sun all of New Yorkseem to think that the presbytery of Now york has eaten crow it seems to me that its something ofa draw or mate Dr Briggs it is true has said some things consid erably in advance of regular Pres byterianismand who has not but when they began to corner him he did the Crustacean act and advanced backward or this by claiming that his words had been misinter preted He either meaut to make an issue with his church or didnot and if he did not so intend he has makinghimself I do not think he has had the fullcourage of his convictions and do think he has quailed at the thunders of the odium thfologicum The Presbyterian church how againsthimdragged in advance of its former position in some particulars that make entering wedges for still further advances For instance in dismissing the BriggstheBishopColenso was arraigned by the church of England namely that the Penta genuineBriggs of defense which the Presbytery accepted saidIt is a fact that I have taught and most firmly hold and assert that Moses is not the author of the Pentateuch and that Isaiah is not the author of half the book which bears his name Presbyteriancourt admitted that nobody knows the author or authors of the first five books of the Old Testament and of course as soon as that church surrenders the claim of the genuineness of the first five books of the Bible their authenticity must logically be abandoned as there is no corroborative evidence of their authpnticityand the whole story of the creation and the garden of Eden of theC fall of man of the tower of Babel and the Noachian delugeI go at one fell swoop Presbyterian church has practically if notde feacto decided that a man can be a good Presbyterian andnot believe any of those storiesiany i nould be grieved above measure ttheirbeen deemed by them as very tspiritsBalaams ass and that of Jonah and the whale still stand unira peached as the mythicaland un substantial Mr Moses had nothing to do with the of those two cheerishednarratives When therefore the gainsayer and scoffer guys us with the col laps and disbanding of Noahs menagerie let us challenge him to disprove that story about Jonah and the whale and you will find that he cant quite come it The New Sun in commenting on the status says The dismissal of the case against Dr Briggs by a large majority of the ministers and elders of the New York presbytery indicates that the body is afraid to go into a iscussion of the questions involved It is an attempt avoid a dangerous controversy and effort to escape the necessity of expressing an opinion as to the specific teachings of the accused heretic The New York presbytery has announced practically that the fallibility or infallibility of the Bible is a deb ble question as to which a Prebyte rian theologian may think as le pleases Who is the Greatest Mania the VorldlI My sixteenyearold sonasked me not long since Papa who do you think is the greatest man in the world I told him that the question was so broad and there were such different varieties of greatness that it would be hard to answer butj that I thought in morals Tolstoi of Russia was the greatest while in physics I thoughtEdison the greatest readingTheI am now prepared to answer defI finitely the question of myson While recognize relatiqn between physics and mor als and that the by imper ceptible gradations merge into the latter I recognize that of these two grand divisions of science morals greater because that is the full fruition of the other and that which bears the more happinessThe to me then is the man who in my judgment is doing the most to advance morals That is B O Flower the editor of The Arena And so I now answer my sons question I He is not a modern sentimental aggregation of pistil and petal stamen and corolla born to blush unseen and waste its fragrance on the desert air but his presence will be felt in every moral breeze that fans the fevered br ow of hppe deferred wherever good women and good men are struggling for the pure the beautiful and the good like a spice laden zephyr from Araby the blest Mr Flower was I believe born in Illinois and ho is the son of a variouslyknown Disciples and Campbellite church and he had a brother who was also a minister in that church Mr Flower was educated at Kentucky University in Lexington and prefessortion said recently to me that young Flower wh lIe a student there stood at the head of his classesIt to me that no scholarly moralist can afford to do without magazineLest should think that what I say is one of the many in sinuating varieties of advertisements that editors dishonestly smuggle into their editorials I myknowledgenot know of my existence on the earthand that to guard against suspicion and to avoid the very appearance of evil I wouldnot for what I am now saying even accept his magazine for a year nor will I send him a marked copy of this paper Rec McGarvey and Congress cityhaveArena but in each of their de politicalFlower and moral pabulum that is as su perior to theirs as is a saddle rock on the half shell to a lonelybivalveof a church fair grand gloomy and peculiar in the solitude of his Editor Flower to in sympathy with such men as Mc SwingNewman Lorimer Politically he is a Prohibitionist and Woman Suffragist of the strictest secttAlmost every issue has an ed itorial in supportof the Prohibi thin movethe rithHis championship of Prohibi ion comes with unusual force magazineiserest of Prohibition but of good generally though like us who make a specialty of combat ting the liquor traffic he seems to regard that as the greatest and most formidable foe to all that is goodSpeaking of this evil he says The saloon the black plague of the nineteenth century life overlaps all other degrading evils its miasma of death fills every rendezvous ofI degradation and until its ever in creasing power is checked nay more until its power in American politics is broken other allies in crime bauchery and moral death will flour ish Like our most competent Pro hibibition writers and speakers beholds the churches responsible for the existence of the liquor traffic and proposes a remedy for it He says Professing Christians are more loyal to party hacks and demagogues than they are to their own homes and is a unit in its voting strength loyal to its tools and relentless to its foes and the voting poWer of the saloon element in any great city when united with the voting strength ofthe Ohristian element in either of the great parties turns the scales for the minions of the rum power He proposes a plan to break the alliance oIthe church with the rum power from which J give an extractSuppose in every church four or six earnest men and women form a league for the protection of home let secure the pledge of every voter n the church who has love for his lowmen and respect for decent government that he will vote for no man for any ofIlce who patronizes a saloonI who fraternizes with tim liquorele mont or who is supported bytho runt shops and that he will use ail honorable means to further good govern ment by seeking the advancement of pure and upright citizensI Accept the Amendment We talk proudly about the brother hood of man but it begins to look as though the sisterhood of women is a phrase that means fully as much New York Voice I always thought the brother hoodembraced the sisterhood but if there is any doubt about it they shall not be left out in the

just as it occurred right here in Lexing ton and then I will let the Lex ington Transcript tell tho story in the Transcripts style calling your attention to the fact that the Transcript has lately laid down as a principle in journalism that it is legitimate business to sell the sen timents of its editorialcolumns and admitted that it did this in advocating the claims of David son a saloon proprietorfor Mayor Lexington If anybody says I mean to in sinuate in the following account that the Transcript has been paid- y Scrugham to write the piece I clmrgeI anything about anybgtaken money from Davidson the circumstances that the Tran J script did I would not hesitate to take money from Scrugham for writing this piece that the Tran efcrTnt has published but I do not set myselfas a criterion for plain facts in the case of I Scrugham are these lie played the regular Sunday School teacher game robbed the bank of which he was cashier of 55000 deserted a loving wife and children and ran off to Canada He has prob gambling now the schemers to get the new pardonhim geanotherT do not know anything nearlyJryto get to fl for him and 1 suppose that tenths of all the saloon men nd distillers in the state voted for himAmong all the saloonkeepers and distillers that I know and know ofI think there is only on who voted against Governor the time that this pardoScrugham Lexingtonfrom spirits a son of Congressman Breckinridge and a son of Rev Arnold retired to a livery stabl andmashed up each others face in a fist fight- I do not know that Governor Browns being at the ball has any thing to do with the matter more especially under consideration fm diuTHhmrthe fact that it shows a gay and festive disposition in the governor that might give hi some sympathy with the gay an festive Mr Scrugham The Tran script bases its argument for the parIdonedScrugham The Transcript is solid in that position Nor is that all We have now in this state the case of a man who absconded with the moneyof a great many The papers said he would be pu in the penitentiary if he were ever caught He came back after while was elected Mayor of his town and not long since was elected to another important office he rolling out the whisky by the anda drunken fight result IInrrel andwounded which several men were The Transcript is right in its position that the rule here is that the men who steal on a big gentlemanly scale shall not be pun ished for it If the devil has no got honest Dick Tate and does not get him before the 350000 that he stole from the state of Kentucky gives out Bro Tate who along with Bro Scrugham was a leader in the Baptist church will be back too It is very touching the style in which the Transcript talks about Jimmy When we used to Jmow him here five years ago and before he had been published a having stolen 55000 he was known as plain Jim but the privations he has undergone in living Canada hotels has endeared him to the great throbbing generous heart of the Lexington and we hear of him as JimmyI to me like a blasted shame that Jimmy should Lave been ostracised as he has for tIle peccadillo of taking 55000 and I believe he ought to bring suit against the state for the loss of time and thQ inconvenience he has sustained for the matter of steal ing 55000 to bet on a horse race when his only purpose in doing o was to get even again he having bet on the horse that did not get there soon enough In a country where the upper crust Christian people go to horse races and the city govern ment authorizes pool rooms and the aristocracy vote for the managers of poolrooms it does look hard that for the mere matter of pocketing 55000 to bet on a race horse a beloved Sunday School teacher should be put to all this inconvenience andannoy ance But the Transcript tells the story so much more touchingly c pathetic than I can do that I re produce it in full head lines andall It is as follows LiIMMY SGRUGHAM A Rumor That His Long Sojourn in Canada Will Soon Come to an End And That BE WILL RETURN KENTUCKY In the early part of January 1885 Jas G Scrugham teller and assistant cashier of the City National Batik fled to Canada where he has continued to reside Everybody knew Jimmy Scrug ham and no young man in Ken tucky of his age was a finer busi ness man or had brighter pros pects He was a member of the Baptist Church a teacher in the Sunday School andaccounted a model in every respect But horse races poolrooms and stock speculation got the better of his judgment as they have with that of many a good man and he fell andtis said ever principaltstockholder in the Electric Light Company which would have made him a rich man lIe also owned stock inthe Overland Telephone CompanyJust the amount of short age was has not we believe been made public but it is said to have whicheamount Mr M G Thompson paid 25000 being on his bond for that amount The balance i thenScrugham and relatives ScrughamgCanada That his friends have been at work

will know when the time expires The Blade is a very welcome visitor to my table You write lots of good things an mytI have enjoyed very many things the Blade has said Smctimes it hss borne down hard on the church but the church or some of its members need all they get I am about forty six years old My life was a checkered one up to fifteen years ago Then I was constrained to close up the old ledger as I may calls itwith all its blots and mistakes and I opened a new book One night while on my way home all alone nobody near with the beautiful canopy of heaven over me and the bright stars looking down upon me I met witha change of heart that I can not ex plain I was made a new man my course was changed I prior to that time had been aiding the liquor interest by myvote stopped short and cast my first Prohibition vote for Green Clay Smith The vote was counted scattering but it was particular greatdealthe cause of Prohibition if I should vote for either of th candidates of the Republicans o Democrats who I know will favo r liquor legislation I would not bo one whit better than the man who sells the liquor and ofcourse liquor dealer is just as good a man as the minister who votes the same ticke- tI am glad that so many minis ters are working und voting for Prohilritidn They should be en couraged also the Christian and women You give the ministers down the banks sometimes for their indifference to Prohibition c You seem to forget that to take the ministers out we wouldnot have so good a time for Prohibition as now They and the very best and most earnest men in the chnrchare Prohibs and we should encourage them The Prohibitionists are getting to be the backbone of the church but we must have patience The Prohibitionists shouldnot leave the church but get it right clean out the license hypocrites and make the church what Christ intended it to be- amI a Methodist and have been a trustee for perhaps eight years We have a good church anda true Christian minister We pay him 2000 a year Now suppose he should go to the polls and vote for a license system I would call him a hyp scrite and prove it to him and I wouldmake things so hot that I would bring a trial and find out who was right he or I This is what every church that pretends to have anyreligion should dopurge itself clean the house and get the old bums and bats out of the pulpits and churches and let those that are trying to follow Jesus run our churches So I say to the Prohibitionists stick to the church pureAndbelieve in all that you say and do Some time last summer you spoke of working on the Sabbath day I think a man that does that sets a bad example and is doing- an injustice to his fellow men Suppose we abandon the Sabbath Wont the laboring men have to work the whole seven days in the weekFreight and passenger trains and steamboats would run as on other days in the weekwhich would make it very hard for the laborers and animals and every thing else that now have a day or part of a day to rest I love to drive out on the Sab bath day but not witha team that has worked all the week I love to lookat the beautiful grassy fields the flowers and foli age and see the beautiful fields of grain and many other grand and beautiful things God has given to wanst my fellow men to enjoy the eame But when we throw up the Sab bath Jay the manufacturers will soon take advantage of it and tell their employes they must work the daysNo spare the Sabbath daylet us keep it and let us keep the church and Sabbath School and the true preacher but fire the bad ones Iam a Prohibitionist because I believe it to be right Have spent some money and time rode hundreds of miles paid every tim- my own expenses and talked as pleased I think if our speakers wouldcharge less and do more work the thing would come quicker A man who will anetake it out a v Prohibitionests is scoundreland should be retired If any of th great reformers had charged fifl dollars a night there never would have been a reformation Such men as do that are in for the money and not for the love of the cause andImy away with them People cant be made to believe they are sincere Now Bro Moore I am gla they have let you live You thought at one time that the rum element would feed you to the vul maylivebition I wish you would have a cut made from a photograph and print alongd I It will be a good scheme andwill take and when 1 0 U dollar send me a postal card an I will remit Yours for the best reform ever started D R Woos Of course I appreciate the cote pliment in being asked t01mt my picture in the Blade j

ago Today the followingunique reply was received GRAND PACIFIC HOTEL CHICAGO October 27 J EsqMY Accept my thanks for the package of happiness of good nature of mental serenity and exaltation that you were enough to send me In this world of trouble pain and sorrow it is a great thing to have potableformclouds and frosts and make a1 cli mate to suit himself g you again I eThe above excerpt from a ws

sent Ingeraoll a jug endorsemend t beautiful letter Ingersoll wrote to that California mother whose son had just died and see how is the mighty fallen I suppose the letter is genuine- If it is so and Ingersoll does not apologize for it I repudiate himI have in my book and in rny paper said more for him than all the writers in Kentucky have anddular man it I had not endorsed Ingersoll though I had left the pulpit on account of my views before I ever heard his name but- a man who can subordinate the mighty genius that he has to such an enormity as the liquor traffic simply because it is a factor in polities though that traffic is ruin moreIput and really is the source of nearly all sins and crimes is not my ideal of a roan r If some gentleman had sent In gersoll a fine overcoat that would make him laughat the clouds and frosts and make a climate to suit himself his note of ac knowlcdgemcnt would not have been published in the news papers But when some unknown scrub whisky drummer or distil Icr sends him a jug of whisky to get his endorsement of itt as soap makers send soap to distinguished clergymen and opera singers In gersoll dignified the jugas a package and puts the massive brain that flattened out Gladstone and Judge Black and Rev Field to writ in a card of thanks that will be about the right length to print on a business letter head cr whisky label or in newspaper advertisement Whom the gods love die young One trouble with lots of 1mends that they do not pick a good time to die They live too long and dont quit talking afte they have said all they had to say Tultnagc has gotten to be a regu torpidGradgrtndarid his old sermons make me tired Jeff is i t Davis was a hero until in his old days he wrote that letter to Texas against Prohibition Cassius M Clay the only hero that Kentucky ever produced hat insisted on living until he has re pudiated all the prestige of his life againstProhibition In days gone by I have laughed at Bill Nye until the tears run out of my eyes but a few days ago I stood in the vestibule of the Lexington opera house and could not wait two hours to hear Bill who was going to lecture there He him mighty Nye petered out If Mark Twain could have had the foresight to die immediately after he had written Innocents Froghemous fame of being the greatest wit of America He got oft a good one when he built his house with the back part of it to the street and said he did so to keep the servants from run ning through the house every time a brass band came along but I am hoping every day to hear of his death because I like him and am afraid he will do something to make n fool of himself If Ingersoll had died immedi aTelyafter that lecture on on The Gods or his nomination of Blame or his speechat the grave of his brother or that letter to the afflicted mother in California he wonld have been all hmiky and upuntil that time I am still for him but I draw the line at his drumming whiksyhouseArtemus was lucky Right in the

for a jug of whisky that Alfred had sent him are coming into me from different come in two instances from cultivated and literary ladies who have been friends of Inger repudieie ladies of what Inger soil has done There are thousands of people all over the country who have admired him for his genius awl for the gallant things he has said in behalf of women and among these I have been one of the most blatant but I will drop him like a hot potato if he gets to boosting the liquor damnation That letter to Hammer is a stigma upon Ingersolls fame that no true Rationalist will try to defend It is about of a piece with that letter of Jeff Davis to Texas against Prohibition A number of us heathen have talkedabout bringing Ingersoll to Lexington for a lecture but I will not him with a ten foot pole until he apologizes for that whisky jug letter If he had merely taken a jug of whisky and thanked the fellow for it like a Kentucky Christian would do I would not kick about it but Ingersoll knows that every thing he says is printed and he eviden ally laid himself out to get up that whisky jug letter to show to fine advantage in type and he has the sense to know that it would be used to boost the liquor trade I am disgusted with it and as sure the good ladies who have sent me the newspaper extracts con taining Ingereolls jug letter that I am disgusted with the letter and another one like that would dis gust me with the man I will stand by him as long he is for the right but just as soon as he gets to supporting the whisky business I put him in the list of moral cowards with such men as Billy Brcckinridge and Lyinan Abbott and Christian or infidel they all go together into the slop bucket Somebody has spoken of mere reticcnse upon this liquor ques tion as the conspiracy of silence It was bad enough in a man of Ingersolls brain to have remained silent upon the subject of the liquor diabolism but if he is to break that silence bynn utterance in favor of itIam against him A most cultivated woman who is a Rationalist and who personally knew Ingersoll in Illinois has written me a letter inclosing Ingcraplls printed jug letter and she expresses her surprise that Ingersoll should have written such a letter and thinks that he was once n drunkard About that I do not know but I am in dimmed to think it a mistake as in all the efforts that have been made to down him nobody has ever assailed his moral character at any time of his life irJj E i i 4 An Elegant Line of NEW SPRING GOODS Korah Moire Koraih Moire CHINN ROSS TODD TO ALL PERSONS TO WHOM TilE BLADE MAY COME The

extracts from the Blade with editorial comments thereon in the KcntuckSanCitizen of Nov 14 r Col Craddock its editor has shown me distinguished kindness in making such extracts from the Blade His paper is popular and has a wide circulation and Demo crat that he is he has always given me a fair showing In the very few instances in which he has rapped me I believe he thought I deserved it and it is quite possible that I did He and 1 have for years been good friends and the only objection that I have nvnr had to him is that he has wasted so gentlc itlifeon ce I must beg leave to ask for a few particulars about that Chris tian lady who says I am crazy JiQt that it huTiscie at alii in fact f Tratber enjoy it JesuBOhrist and St Paul both had the reputa tion of being crazy and Iam in good company Isuppose I have been called crazy four times as much as any man in the Eastern Kentucky Lunatic Asylum at Lexington but as yet it has not affected my appe tite nor broken into my sleep But this is the first instance of which 1 know in which a lady has taken that view of my case Andall of the men of whom I know who have been saying that any time lately were such as were opposed to Prohibition T I have boasted in my paper that the ladies were for me and I think they are largely for Prohibition and I just want to ask if this Christian lady in Paris is ProhibitionParis head of Bourbon county and Bourbon has given its name to whisky the world over I suppose there is no place on earth where whisky is so worshipped as in Paris Ky Q4 +r It has not been long since the Democratic papers in Paris pub lished that two Democratic church deacons one of the Presbyterian church and the other of the Christian churchnotoriously votes with whisky to ge a Democratic nomination iS I suppose there is no place in the world where whisky is so thoroughly soaked into tho churchas in Prais There is probably less sentiment against the liquor traffic in Paris in proportion to its size than any town in the world Nearly all the people of any prominence in the town drink whiskor are interested in the whisky business and I do not suppose there is a preacher in the town who would dare say a word against whisky The leading aristocracy of the town are distillers The Blade its circulation by having friends at different points to furnish it lists of the names of what were supposed the best people in the different sec tions and my paper was sent to them kindly asking them to noti fy me if they did not want it Of all the papers to whichmy paper has gone my books show that Parishas in

The New York Voice of No vember 12th has an editorial a part of which I give that sounds so much like the Blade that many readers of the Blade can recog nize the similarity to what I say when 1 get to talking in the plu ral tensesas Uncle Jo Mosby used to call itand in five years from now if I should hear it read without knowing who wrote it I would think I had done If 1 can keep the Voice reading the Blade a little lon er I will make a good Prohibition paper of itThe excerpt is as follows Whether it helps the Prohibi tion party whether it helps or hurts the temperance organiza tion whether it helps or hurts the churches and whether it helps or hurts the voice or its publish ers we demand in the name of humanity in the name of those principles of righteousness and morality that and antedate all churches in the name of wreckedman hood outraged womanhood and crushedchildhood in the name of Christ in the glad news that He preached we demand that the churches shall rebuke those who are perpetuating by law this atrocity of drunkardmaking or stand branded as recreant to every principle that it professes to uphold our demand resulted- in the obliteration of the Prohi bition party tomorrow we would make it nevertheless If it re sults in the destruction of every churchorganization on American soil the day after we would reit erate it all the same There is one thing that stands above all parties and creeds and State con stitutions and that is TRUTH The institution that trembles and totters when the utmost truth gets itselfspoken is one that ought to tremble and is sure to totter We have been told ad nauseam of the terrible effects our recent declara dons would have upon the Pro hibition Party We dont believe one syllable of the forebodings but if we believed theta all the would make no difference We butt we a got s itself into the churches andwe insist that the lie be ejected or the churches that protect it be are times when tolerance cease to be a virtue and becomes a crime One of those times is when murder goes stalking through the streets defiant legalized dictatorial opinionbutfact that the liquor traffic is or ganized murder It is a fact that bylawrepresentative form of Govern throughtheirand unmake the lawsretryas much as any man to cultivate opinionsYethat way But this is not a matter of opinion There are the facts and the men that are

Alive Col Charles C Moore the bold bad editor of time Blue Grass Blade made a raid on Lexington yesterday probably concluding that the colt wave had cooled the atmosphere sufficiently for him to safetyDuring rangeOfshoot the compositors for any thing printed in the Blade especi ally when they were ladies Peo ple who know Col Moore say that notwithstanding his Quaker ish notions on fighting he would ifnecessary fight a circular saw with a stack ot wildcats thrown in for good measure It was reported during the summer that Col Moore had when the tem perature of the town got too hot retired to Russells Cave and setup in it his editorial sanctum guarded bya grindstone hung over the door with a patent trig ger dropping it onto anyone hunt ing the editor This report however has not been verified It is a fact though that Col Moore is now editing his paper at a still longer range than before having moved his sanctum from Russells Cave to George town This distance will make things reasonably safe provided the Colonel does not jump on to the Georgetown boys with both feet thus opening a fire in his rear and compelling him to flank out toward Sadieville or Oxford But we have confidence in the military skill and tactical knowl edge ot Col Moore as he carried one of John Morgans knapsacks through Europeafter the war Just a common ordinary scrap per would have no more chance with him in an old fashioned ground scuffle than a foxter rier would have with a male coon in Ekhorn creek Col Moore does not claim to be a tighter but he has cut iron weeds and built strong water gaps on his farm until no has muscle like John L Sullivan It would be advisable for the man who wants to whip him to attack him with a batteryof artillery or slip up on him with one of Uncle Sams

good Prohibitionist But I have never had anything against Sam Small and an out rage like that gives me sympathy for him I know that the primitive Christian preachers were always gettingwhipped and I know that these no account preachers are less liable to get hurt than anybody Sj that when I find one of them receiving the kind of treatment that Sam Small has just gotten from a saloonkeeper it is pretty good reason to that Bro Small was saying sonic thing that ought to have been toyo to say It is pretty hard on him but it helps the Prohibition ause t Every drop of blood that he shed will probably make a Prohi bition voter The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church Brutal men will laugh and ap plaud the saloonkeeper but good women know what saloonkeepers do for woman and children and this will make sympathy for Sam sympathyput in a good word for it now and then to their husbands and broth ers and sweethearts and after a gelhetterIt scams pretty hard that we have to

animadver sion upon that Democratic ticket I will make some prefatory observation on the editor of that paper and before I do that I will state that a Democratic nomination in Lexington is equivalent to an election the Republicans having no candidate and those men are now virtually the officers of LexingtonI the Tran script when it was the most prominent paper in Lexington and in that capacity learned the greater part of what I know about the men on that ticket Personally I have nothing against the editor of the Tran script he was not generous tome he came up to his contracts with me and that is all I have a right to ask of any man To the journalistic course of the editor of that paper I have the motet radical objection He was in the Yankee army population c Colonels I knew that editor for seven years before I ever knew he had in the Yankee army though we discussed politics and the war and everything else that goes into a newspaper and things that would not do to go into a newspaper I wanted the slaves to be freed and the government ripped wide open like a watermleon right across Mason and Dixons line from ocean to ocean My last Presidential vote was for Clinton B Fisk a Yanee general for President of the United States and for John A Brooks a rebcLa soldier for Vice President United States Recently all the newspapers in Lexington except minehave been mad at eachother and got to tell tales out of school This in cieludedor so called edited bya Yankee carpet bagger with a broad cerulean blue stripe running down the bay window on the frout eleva tion of his anatomical architecture His paper was run with the throttle valve opened add two fifty rS sixer on the safty valve in the interest of fuji Davidson a Democratic saloonkeeper He either did this because he was paidby Davidson for doing it or because that was his natural political preference These news accused eachother of rob ing the city and leading Demo cr thaticDemocrats of the city of stealing money out of the city treasury just as other newspapers speak of ain robbers getting money out of express cars Transtript said of one of these men who had just thesignedtate of Kentucky that he and another Lexington Democratic editor had gotten all that was left in the city treasury of GOO000after another man whose name appears in the above Democratic ticket had stolen 811000 and another editor had stolen 130000 This resigned Treasurer whose name is the above list whom the accused of being one of two equal partners who were responsible for the disappearanceS of 600000 less whom the Transcript now en dorses in the above editorial sue- eeded Dick Tate the Democratic Stat Treasurer who stole from the state 350000 loaned a good part of it to prominent state officers and is day in hell or China Amid all this internecine journalistic strife I stood like that boy who stood on the burning deck eating peanuts by thtpeckor like the statue of erty enlightening the World holding aloft a large olive branch and pouring coal oil on the trouble waters by the barrel but ooming guus alone replied tncc the flames rolled onbThe outside world wo looked upon the melee as a case of do cat dog except for one little incident that got to be interesting to the rest of the newspapers in t eThecharged the Ttanscript with having taken 50000 to sellout its editorial columns to Hull Da vidson The Transcript did no deny it There is not a Demo newspaperinJournal that would not sell ouiits editorial columns to the for 50000 The CourierJour nal is a little higher toned than the othersit would want 60000 Some of the other papers in the state including the CourierJoura naldidnt have keep their mouths shut and guyed the Transcript about its sell out When they made it so hot for the Transcript that it could not stand it any longer its editor came out in an editorial and not only acknowledged the corn but claimed that it was as journal ism as advertising for businessmen Now whether the above editor rial that made six lines in the Transcript was included in the Transcript 50000 contract with Davidson or was put in afterward for good count as the market man sometimes puts another potato on top of the peck you buy I do not know But as a dead give away of Kentucky journalism it beats the record It has done more to assist Pro hibition in that one issue than the Southern Journal and Worker and the Blade have done in t yearI have allowed myself five years to carry Kentucky for Pro hibition and Womans Rights but if the other Democratic editors dont decoy oft the Transcript Niagarfallsor pay him to hush or close him up 11somehowhave Prohibition here in half the time I have allowed Now I am going to tell you about that Democratic ticket that the Transcript thinks is such a lovely lot for the interest of this City I will state what I believe to be facts about them and they byhundredsthis city and upon the accuracy of this statement I am willing to stake my reputation as a newspaper reporter in a case that wouldnot demand special investigation If any gentleman in good standn ing in any learned Lexington except journalism be licves that my statement is so inaccurate as to indicate a prejudice in me in making it and will write to me to that effect over his own name I will publish his commu IInicatiotespecify the particulars in which he thinks I have misrepresented them There are in that Democratic ticket thirty men Of these there arc five that I do not know or know much about Of them there are only four who have the entree into what is truly on best society in the town Of that four one is intellectually pretty weak Every man on that ticket will take a drink of whisky Twentyone of them will go into a saloon and get a drink of whisky twelve are drinking men six are drunkards five are saloonkeepers three are exsa loonkeepers ninteen can not speak the English language gra matically or approximately so Only three arc members of any f r le athecF profession and one

dead beats who are not good eir debts twelve of them I would not lend 10000 on his own name ifI were a banker There is nota man in the whole lot who has distinguished himself as a public benefactor
