shake hands across it I eaw it was a Men strike as soon publishedfirst after the publication of the Captains piece in the Leader ofI October 7 but it was too long f m paper I thought But I have had calls for it by friends of the Blade and for their sake andmJ 4 own I republish it I have not at this writing seen Capt Drake since he wrote it though I wrote him sightI a note that I would shoot tood that he feared feelingsbuthave read anything in any Lex ington paper at which I have laughed so much He scores it into me prett nicely sometimes but that is pav 4ingme in my own coin and the a preservation of histori cal accuracy that he maintains all through tbe whole eight chapters of his Chronicles demands that mytimeoomPersons anywhere in the United States who have read the Blade especialthose J tional first issue will recognize much of the accuracy of the his to Phr clsJmt citizens of Lexington who saw and heard much that took place that wns never published in my paper nor in

the peopleI2 And Charles the ItihmalliteI was chief among the uturnnir era and dissenterst3 man about him and walked among the people of the city and d dspy upon them and did try to stir up more dissension among them 4 But the people wouldt hearken unto Charles the Ii dayl hismaelitcman is a heathen he is no good 5 Theo Charles the Ishmaelite became exceedingly wroth and did cry aloud against Charles the 4f Pointer and tlie people and he did spy on Charles the Pointer to find cause whereof he might accuse him 6 But when he could findno fault in him whereof to accuse him before the people his anger was greater than before 7 Then Charles the Ishmaelite spake unto his wife saying Lo Charles the Painter is an exceed ing wicked man 8 Inasmuch as he hath begot ten a son Charles the Prince who yerelyhelieve w liquohereby rg drunken 9 And also he hath taken into his council certain other bad and wickedmen publicans and sin ners who fur the purpose of gain and profit in filthy lucre hath also sold to the people this vile liquor whereby they are become drunken 10 When Charles the Ish- maelite had thus spoken he was moved with much anger 11 And he looker about him and sought how he might punish these men who had done no evil thoe sixteenth day of the ninth month of the third year of the reign ol Charles the Painter 13 That Charles the Ishmaelite did conceive a weapon wherwith to smite Charles the Painter nndfl the chief priest and the scribes and the publicans and all of the people who were drunken 14 Charles the Ishmaelite had not money enough to pay for his weapon So he cnlledupln the chief priest of the city and the publicans and the moneylenders saying 15 Behold I have in my hand weapon wherewith I will smite allof the wicked people of the city mid make them good and cause them to cease from drunk emptyIand wonderful weapon of my own invention I pray thee therefore give me of thine abundance that may go forth and do the people good w 16 And the chief priest and publicans and the moneylenders were deserved by Charles the Ish- maelite and gave him bountiful of icirfilthy lucre his 17 And the heart of Charles the Ishmaelite was made glad and he went on his way rejoicing and saying 18 These fools have given me the wherewith to pay for my weapon the like ot which no man lath ever seen before and no man willever see again 19 And on the morning there in after it came to pass that Charles thelshmaelite did take his strange and heathenish weapon and sally forth into the city 20 And when the people di look npon this strange weapon theywere sore amazed and snidn one unto another What man ner of weapon is this 21 Charles the Ishmaelite answered them saying Behold is a weapon of mine own inven ion the like whereof no man ever held before and no man brave enoughsave me in all the land De n found to wield it for lo it smites in front and rear to the right hand and to the left hand andottimes smihs the smiter 22 But I will fear not for my weapon is exceedingly sharp and long and bright and for these rea sons I call it my Blade 23 And Charles the Ishmaelite did wield his Blade and did smite Charles the Painter and his son Charles the Prince and Charles ic Great Counselor whose sur nama is Rufus because of his hair 24 And he did also smite Joshua the Smith who was also a scribe and wrote with a pen made from the wing of the Falcon 25 And he did also smite David lie Transcriber and he did also smite all of the chief priests and a peoplet the Money Changer and his son Wil Ham who is also a money changer did he smite 27 And he did also smite the lawmakers and the publicans Yea evey one of these he smote with his Blade 28 Awesome of them that the smitten were fearfully andothers of them that were smote were sorely angered But none of

of the South Sea Cummings a man hereto fore bearing a good character at tended an old Virginia court hereon Monday and returned home whiskyOnbecame troublesome and attempted quarrdfirstby throwing brandy on the cook stove when she was preparing angerknewthe babe from its crib he placed it on the red hot stove at the same time drawing a revolver and threatening to kill the helplea- woman if she attempted to rescue the child The child is reported roasted alive hut another repor says it is not dead The man ha not been arrested at last accounts nchinghimNcLslwillc We have a great deal of talk about the extent to whichmen are responsible for the crime occasioned by the liquor traffic and the Ungodly League editorials of the New York Voice have set our Prohibition people all by the ears as to the responsibility of the church for this crime The church docs not amount to a row of pins to me except that church menbers who are not Prohibition ists simply add the crime of hypocrisy to their complicity with the liquor traffic because they profess to be better than other menEvery man in the United States who does not vote with the Prohi bition party is responsible for the r roasting upon a hot stove of that little baby before the eyes of its mother unless the man is ignorant of the fact that all political par I ties except one are upholdin- the liquor traffic and that the one exceptional party is the Prohibi tion party and that it is the liquor traffic It is opposingII for these men to reply eulher g = thing a to itical mat ters to be seen to beside the Prohibition of the liquor trade Ifa man is a farmer and plowing in his own fieldon th side of a railroad and he sees that a switch has been improperly left stoplightningy a stepping out on the track and is hand in the

any Democrat t or Republican in Lexington Ky whom I arraign for complicity in the murder of the baby in Lexington Va for him to say that he was financially interested in the tariff or that lie hoped to get an office from one of the old I parties Ifhe is a man of as much intelligence as he ought to be quired to have in order to the ex ercise of the elective fraivhisc and was a competent voter at the last Presidential election and did not cast his vote for Fisk and soias finis in the murder of that Virginia baby as if he had been at Lexington Va and had declined- to stop Carl Cummings when he could have done so with perfect impunity to himself simply b f warning him not to do so Quod Tacit per aliam Tacit per so is a recognized fundamental principle in law and the principleI- S not destroyed by the fact that several others may intervene be agentIan or Any man of ordinary intelli anyIProhibition party at the last Pres partyIsell whisky and that whisky would make men drunk and that drunken men would roast babies on red hot stoves or commit any other crime that they couldcon ceive of And therefore when that man roasted that baby on that red hot stove and kept its mother off with a revolver he simply did what hypocritical Christians all 1over the United States voted that he should do and they would have been surprised to the extent of thinking a miracle had happened if in the whole of the United Slates as thedirict natural and legitimate result of their votes there had not happened such a case or one as bad or worse ifJ possible than I now reportiThe man who has sense enough to appreciate the effect of his vote and is today determined not to vote for the Prohibition candi dates in 1892 is in his heart an accessory before the fact to a thousandmurders as villainous as hse casts his vote against Prohibition he will be a murderer If he is instigated to do this under the in hte has been inflamed and instigated to do it from the speeches or ed itorials of Democratic or Republi can politicians then he has done it in sudden heat and passion and he is guilty of murder in the second degrees If he has not been unduly influ euced by any of these but know ingly and of his own free willand accordvotes against the candi dales who represent the party whose purpose is the suppression of tlio liquor trade then he is guilty of destroying human life with malice prepense andafore thought and is guilty of murde- in the first degree If only one man or a score or a hundred men should by this ex 1cremes of their power bring upon the citizens of this government the murders that result from voting against Prohibition they be arrested and ought to be ar rested and hanged like the Nihilists at Chicago But the con spiracy and rebellion against the principles of civilized government- is so large and so general that there is no tribunal that can bring them to justice thadJ themselves as well as upon others by their votes any more than i would have been a valid plea of the attorneys for the Chicago Ni hilist that the dynamite bomb- that their clients threw into tIle crowd killed Nihilists as well as innocent citizens Every man who casts any other ballot than that for the Prohibition party throws a dynamite bomb into a miscellaneous crowd and it is no effect to his crime that he kills hisown friends among others The man who casts such a ballot and he who casts such a bomb commit offenses that are equally damnable before any just tribunal But the tribunals of this country for sordid and base motives are in conclusion with those who cast the murderous ballotand can not make any profit by collu sion with those who cast the mur derous bomb and therefore the unjust discrimination for one and against the other Every mother in the United amggence to influence men to vote for the Prohibition movement just as trjuly contents to the death ol tfatvirgniteJwiby as Saul who was afterward callcdImli consented unto the death o Stephen when he stood by ands without protest held the clothes eof those who stoned him The Fanners Alliance From tho Shelby Sentinal The Farmers Alliance seems to be fast approaching final disolu tion Founded only a year or two ago on sound principles with high motives it has drifted afar from its original purposes and become what it was never intended- to be the phrthing of designing politicians demagogues and mal contents who saw in it an oppor tunity to gratify an ambition which the two old parties had failed to satisfy Divorced from politics by its constitution it was nevertheless led into these devious paths at first only in local contests then finallybycalin session at Indianapolis last week into endorsement of the Peoples party an aggregation politicalthing over seen before A year in politics itseems should have taught them better policy In Kentucky where the powerfulelewent decreased according to the latest reports from 100000 to 20000 or strongholdIn Mississippi and Georgia it was yetinevidence of the unpopularity of SupremeCouncil dares for the Peoples party A split in the order hid already occurred on the subTreasury scheme and the antiTreasury fiction become ailcnatcd and this final action of the Council it seems will disrupt the whole concern Time Alliance as we have fro quently said before was founded on pure motives and had the pur poses of its authors been adhered to had a future of good ahead of it It was a patent fact that the farmers had been neglected in legislation and it was only proper that they should band themselves together to demand their rights Had they only done this all would haw been well But the farmer deserted his standpoint ofright He came to demand of government not only rights but privileges The organization grew into a power The sweets of fice became a temptation Then demagogues arose and playing on the selfish interest of a credu lous constituency led them to all kinds of suicidal folly Tho result was a saturnalia of class leg islation The farmers who con demned in the bought rulings that favored monopolysought to be guilty of the crimes they condemn in others Their original complaint was that government showed favoritism Instead of merely protesting against this they began to demand that gov ernment should favor them The plausible legislationless kind The collateral of the farmer was to be given preference to all other collateral and the public money loaned on it Inc short they wanted the earth in their desire for it they over reached themselves Tho finale as we comprehend the situation- r of the Alliance as a power in the country was written in the Indianapolis resolution The Shelby Sentinel in which the shore editorial appears is ed ited right in the midst of the strongest Farmers Alliance senti meat in this state and is the onl paper in which I know outside o papers that were started in the interest of the Alliance humbug that come out and advocated its cause I supposed the Alliance go to the dogs in a short time but it gift there sooner than I expected incougruoustreligion and worse politics out partiessperpetrated on a longsuffering public It was a kind of a habrid between a Methodist camp meeting Freemasonry and Know nothingism It began the proceedings o each meeting with a religious cere many that was open to the public and wound up withsomething that only the eniciated were al lowed to hear andseea pro cedure at once sun gestivc of trea governmentAuy on keeping its proceedings closed froth public scrutiny should be put 1under police sureveilaucc The death of the Farmers Al liance adds only one move to the list of spasmodic efforts that have been made to establish soothe party and which have ingloriously gone down until their names have almost been forgotten And yet the Prohibition party has been present at the birth and death of all of these not making any great stir or sensation at any time but steadily from 5000 to siuglefspringing up among them It is practically impossible that there can be any division among Prohi bitionists as to the ultimate purpose of the party The very term Prohibition means to prohibit the liquor trade just as Abolition meant to abolish the slave trade and any nun who ever went into either of those parties could but know what he was doing because the very names of them told him The very worst that we ever can do among ourselves is to fuss a little about Woman Suffrage while each party claims to be the better Prohibitionists The rise and flllof allsuch parties as the Alliance or Peoples parties strengthen the Prohibition party They have taught each other about the errors of the old parties and are weaned from alwaysbeand they will not go back to them for sympathy and will come to Prohibition We are bound to win if we ad work to our political faith Let every man do his duty to this causa when an opportunity offers itself and occasionally let him go opportunities I am Still Betting on the ICavens LEXINGTON KY Nov 18 1891 DEAR

as free as the air of heavenno C 0 D about it but with the postage pre paid at the regular rates for sec ond class matter The half of the first page your paper of November 7 that have just been

may publish if you think them worthy of a place in your paper if not all is w llItrulyJESSE Who is responsible Lord is ill beingsfillin the United States No drunkW ard shall inherit the heaven Jesus Sixty thousand souls are by the liquor traffic annually ushered into eternity totally unprepared to F buLordSomebody is responsible for all this human blood My reader is it you Put the question to yourself Answer it honestly If you are a voter voting for the party that favors licensing or permitting the liquor traffic you are to a large extent responsible Human blood is upon your hands highhandedhold you responsible I realize that this is a grave charge and shudder to make it especiallybut it is truth and the truth must be spoken regardless of consequences You say one who does responsiblePartly ber that no young man when he dtoards grave But little by little step by step unaware of the danger he is in inticed by the attrae Lion of the opened licensed loona permitted by the Iawsmadeby e men elected by the voter he goes down down down till he reaches the gutter and finally th drunkards grave and drunkards hellIs the man who makes it re sponsible Partly so But he e only doing what the law permits and gives him a right to do responsiblethe law permits and protects him in his damnable business- Is the officer who issues the li tense responsible He is doing what the law

if he votes and casts his influence for the man or partywho favors or permits the existence of the liquor traffic for by his vote he elects the man who makes the law that orders the court to issue the license that permits the saloonkeeper to sell death and destruction to his fel low man Where do you stand my reads Are you voting with the party that fosters and protects this gigan tic evil for its influence or that has not the backbone to come out and openly condemn it If so you arc just as guilty of murder as he who places an infernal machine loaded with dynamite upon the public highway and blows the un wary traveler into countless atoms This is plain talk but it is truth and must be said The curse is here the work of destruction is going on The liquor traffic has throttled both the leading political parties j and they dare not cheep against it for their lives It heaps up its blood money in the church treasury and eays Speak against me if you dare and I will withdraw my support Let such parties and such churches perish The sooner they are gone the better for the country The profeeeed Christian voter who tits upon his own hearthstone and says The liquor traffic does not harm memy boy does not drink therefore I shall not raise my voice or vote against itJ has not enough Christianity in his soul to warm a flea on a frosty morning Am I my brothers the rule Vote as you pmyand no Christian man can vote for the Republican or Democratic parties and be con sistent for both of them foster encourage favor license und permit the liquor traffic And that too upon the lowest principle upon which any evil could be permitted namely merely for its polluting corrupting unpatriotic influence in politics What Is itcousistent Christianity to vote for a party that permits and encourages licenses and pro frets an evil that sends sixty thous and human beings to drunkards graves and the drunkards hell every year in the United States alone That causes ninetenths of all the crime commitcd that blights and blasts the brightest intellects of the land that de thrones reason and makes a brute of a man that causes more mis cryshame and degradation than anyother one thing under the sun that destroys the happiness of more homes breaks the hearts of r sr eS more women and unfits more young men for a life of usefulness than any thing else in the world Can any Christian man vote for party that is responsible for such things and be consistent prayforthingsChristian if you will lay aside your prejudice and be honest you must adroit that these things are true If you admit them true you must confess that at your own door more than that of any one responsibilityChristian your excuse for shouldering this sponsibility What is your exam pie to the unbelieving worldj

the size otmy paper and of myself and tote I am going to retaliate by giving some good advice to somebody else and 1 select as the victim of my good advice the ReiD Era a Prohibition paper published at Springfield Ohio eface my remarks just as they do to me bsaying I like tbe loyalty of that paper to ob P myjectionsIn the editorial department of the issue of Nov 20 the one that now lies before me there is a lot ofeditorial squiblets varying in length from one line up to nine teen lines I think half of the occupied by these is taken with advice to the people t subset ibc for the New Era Then there is an editorial ofa little more than a column anda half solidand the conclusion it arrives is that people ought to take th New Ma and yet in that editorial it speaks of jtself as being most serenely solid on the question o f Some people say that ifI claim to be a heathen I ought not to quote scripture but I will t to the New Era Let another praise the and not thine own lips That paper is sometimes chock full of boasting of its own excel lence I dont see how any modest man can write that vay about his own newspaper in hard earnest pileitman of sense will understand that I am simply talking for buncomb I have lately claimed for in stance that I know more theology than Pope Leo XIII but it never truck me that any man in the State of Kentucky or anywhere else thought I was fool enough to believe that in earnest and yet of alcourse I really think the old gen is a kind of a back number in some of his ideas thtmore a column kicking against what is known as the million pledge plan suggested by the New York Voice Time very worst that any sensible man can justly sa against that p inn is that it may nrtt t1atrl andintcndo to canyad- mit to that it may not do any good Voitoce same there certainly does seem to thatanway some as we whichse to we every resource at our command Eraeon its distinguished opposition to the recent editorials of the Voice conlcamismy d brother uf the New Era sounds like a little piece of journalistic jealousy and it sounds a little bit jealousyt of moon rag businessI in fair emulation and- if I could make a paper twice as good as the New York Voice I bee5t goorSy Itam ramlcb orThe Voice has the brain at money and energy to put into a big newspaper and it is doing it and we should give them all honor for doing so and if other iufltret

of us would know what the Prohibition party doing all over the United another page of the New Era under the heading The 1Y Kccley cure for inebriety there is an article of a correspondent to the sentiment of which the editor gives the consent of silence It is boosting Dr Keel y bichloride of gold humbug that claims to cure drunkenness by a hypcrder mic injection of some new tan glednostrum Theres justabout whiskyisbite If there was anything in that rattle snake whisky business and a rattle snake should be so unlucky as to bite one of these Lexington politicians the whisky in the man would kill the snake as dadau hammer while the leglikeragging on Jo Blackburn and never suppose for a moment tlut the snake was anything more than one of these jimjam snakes That other Keeley that made the rooter that never rooted worth a cent was no fraud at all com paredwith this new whisky cure quack But the New Era man seems to think that since Keeley has come to the front with his snake medi cine there really wont be much use for the Prohibition party but It sounds when we have all just read that Col Miner suchoan advertisement in the North American Review by telling how yKeeley resulet ofa drunken debauchof a month I reckon that in starting a Prohibition paper in Lexington Ky I have token the hardest row ednitor iu the world I aint getting to be a bloated bond holder nor a
