mothers heart but broke my own heart and I saw in prospect as plainly as I now see the thirty years in retrospect the Illiad of woes that my departure from the faith of my fathers has brought upon me successfullydelyand successfully I nothing to support me but the knowledge that I was and the courage of my con victions When you like a Minerva from the thigh of Jupiter sprang at one bound full the arena and tounded and startled like some won drous brilliant meteor the whole civilized world and dashed from your sailed flanks the legions of howling hypocrites as some Nemean lion would a packof curs of low degree you were a revelation to me and I bowed at the shrine of your mighty genius with an adoration and idolotryfar more genuine than that which the average Christian feels for his God I read your books traveled to a dis tance to hear your lectures cheerfully paid high prices to hear them sought and obtained interviews with you and to you and to others in season and out ofseason utterly regardless of all that it was costing me in in social recognition and in every interest of every kind save that of mental liberty out of the abundance of my heart my mouth spake my unbounded wild en thusiasm for you It cost me my posi tion in a bank and my pesition on a newspaper and came nearer costing me the love of the dearest wife that ever plighted troth than all else together Hut by years of pure life I have lived down all of this andniy neighbors saw that a man could an and be a good man The conviction that I was right grew with my years and ripened into defiant courage as my hair began to silver with the frosts and I wrote a book in which I said kind and enthusiastic about you I became a Prohibi tionist and when as the editor of a Pro hibition paper the way to eminence and financial success seemed clear if I would only pander to Christian ignorance big otry and hypocrisy I would not deserl you because you were right though ters came by the hundred repudiating me and refusing me support and tim I can not now count- thembChristian men threatened to mur lroclaimedChristian men caught me in the public highway and in the name of the chord subjected me to such outrage

to BillyIalmost as aggressive as Billy the women of the country have printed their repudiation in the same way that they have nobodyhassaid blasting me and this issue of this shows that they regard me as their friend Editor Hodges feels that he has posed himself in his advocacy of Breck and he feels that people see and he does not sleep well under it a he has that feeling and his ef forts to parry the attack of Rev B doesrfirmly on his head There is only one way that Editor Hodges can recover himself and that is simply to acknowledge that he is wrong and back out and grease and take a fresh start As it is now the women and Re Jones and I all have him on the and to maintain an inglorious defensive is all that he can do If Billy is elected he may get plum but he and everybody else w know

The words of Capt R H Fitz hugh a prominent writer and thinker have the right ring to them when he says I am and have been a friend to Mr if I thought he would take myadvice I would say to him now todratheir votes for you he is sur prised that Mr shouldask his friends to indorse his immorality and thus say to their sons that morality counts for Capt J R Berry says I am a Confederate and have always voted for Breckinridge but he has left me no ex cuse for doing so now he has admitted every thing that the people of the Ash land district promised months ago to wait for him to deny A man that will lie and impose on his friends as he has on Mrs Blackburn is not the man to represent me inCongres Or will you say as some do that you will vote for him no matter what he does or like Will S Marshall a well known publisher gives his reason for wanting to send him back to Congress that he will be ostracized socially and will have time to attend to business Is this the kind of a man you want to represent you in Congress one so vile and immoral that society utterly ignores him What influence do you suppose he will have in Washington own timony was given and it was seen how he in every

yourftSSselvessin as the smooth slicktongued Hilly I ONIY A Mrs Sarah Sedgewick of Mem phis Tenn tells what Wom en think about Breckinridge and Miss Pollard To the Editor of the Blue Grass Blade During the discussion of the late un pleasantness in Washington the women of this country could not help wondering why the men were so worked up by the fear of the terrible effects ofthe Pollard Breckinridge case on the female mind This was shown by their writings in the press and the remarks of Col Butter juryAsdemonstrations of feeling that his client was on the losing sideit was but nat ural that he should deplore the bringing of the suit But women fail to see the reason for this general outcry on the part of men about its alarming effects upon the morals of American women and rise to remark that the men had better look within for a mares nest Women have always striven far harder than they to uphold the standard of morality and the less men meddle with them the better The women shrewdly suspect that the real reason of their terrible alarm is lest r r asimw 1Pi rftJf some other Medeline Pollard incited thereto by the success of this one should go and do likewise If every Miss Pollard in the United States were to arise in righteous indignation and seek redress through the courtsit would certainly hurt no woman nor would it ruin the thousand souls as Col Butter manythousandbeen born If all sinning men were sure of the punishment that Col Breckinridge has received it would have a most whole alreadyinwarning This is inferred from the vast amount of highly moral talk men have indulged in for the last few weeks both in the press and out and doubtless suddenlydiscovered home It has not hurt good women and has only served to make vice seem more loathsome than ever to respectable ple of both seves and to intensify their desire to see the Augean stables cleaned out no matter how heroic the treatment One sided measures have never proven efficacious Justice knows no sex and bythely For theres is a sin that banes them with one bane It is not of disgustingwho has been thus wronged should be browbeatep from seeking redress through the courtsout of sentimental regard for the publics feelings As the sun purifies so will the search investigation into such evils andthe punishment of the wrong doer It is in the pursuance of the policy of cloaking and covering up such vile deeds that they grow and flourish for sin loves the enough the men are all crying out the woman is getting off too easy she has sinned also and yet she is going on the stage goiifg to get gold and glory Why has she not received the usual stoning from her own sex For this reason Back of Miss Pollard this one woman who has escaped a ston ing in nineteen hundred years no won der the show managers want her is every woman in America Her revenge is their revenge This was shown by the interest took in the trial and their universal delight in her triumph That Miss Pollard was ele vated was but a mere incident of a desire to degrade the man who has drawn up on himself the intense hatred and con tempt of every woman in America it is believed with the single exception of Mrs Bullitt of The unpar alleled impudence of the man who after confessing his iniquities nonchalantly remarked that such exposures as would ruin the woman only injure the man was the straw that broke the camels back The worm has turned Every reportsfrontdaughterhashim also if she can accomplish it His words and his manner said thusI am moralityisand sin and the woman whom I have ruinedwill go to perdition and I will go to CongressAs one deems her blamelessfarfrom it though all must concede that she was most sinned against still seeing all that she had suffered no one can begrudge hernny comfort to be derived from stage littleshould treat her as it has for years past alUICJughfully emolIumentsoratory pay her six thousand a year and send her to Congress she might at least attain to the high moral standard of the average Congressman And right now the women of this country want to know Congressisgood moral character as well as a poor woman who applies for a clerkship in one of the departments Surely the one office is more exalted than the other and demands a more exalted character to fill it We would as leave have our pen sions patents and mail dished out to us by an person male or female as to have our laws made by such The closing years of the nineteeth centure will witness the beginning of a new eraand it is time Breckinridge and Pollard are only straws which show anydoubtcyclonejustdiscoveredawake she is very wide awake and is graduallydawnedfor nineteen hundred years been ston ing the wrong party That there must have been something radically wrong with that plan is evident since it has been signally unsuccessful in improving tae moral condition of the is disobeying the teaching and example of the Master she has brought upon the world most of the trouble and sorrows that exist That stoning the woman and letting the sinning man go free she has defeated her own object She has set a premium on mans immorality and made his opportunities for sinning and leading a all the more easyand convenient By stoning and ostracizing the erring woman thus depriving her of all opportunity of earning an honest ningherown selfrepect which is denied to no man however much he may have sinned she is driven to the only alternative left open to her from which she turns with the sense of this injustice rankling in her heart and with all the venom of a woman scorned to prey the pure homes from which she is spurned Instead of couraging her to reform and lead a life of decency thus making fewer and fewer instead of more and more the portunities for sinful living for

these children and children of their kind ways live in spite of the devil and the doctors if they have half a chance That the parents of these children were of unusual bodily no ex pert in America isto deny and yet that any of them lived beyond nobodyknowsing his crimes in religious hypocrisy as Breckiuridge has done is capable of any crime and he and his paramour should be arrested and

handledwith sugar tongs and handed around on a rose leaf as Fannie Fern said of N P Willis The crimes of such men as Breckinridge are in these days of journalistic prudery so sugarcoated with French terms and Latin technicali ties that the of the land chargedThemongers and adulterers God will judge and when a degenerate clergy bedecked gewgawIfinical to quote the King James version of the New Testament I who only en dorse its plain blunt honest home spun morals am glad that a man like Judge Durham though once himself in the Congress of the United States can now come to the front from the

Christian speakers The speech ofJudge Durham intrin sically strong gams additional force front his high record in Congress and his grand and pure life as he goes in and out among us in his daily walk

state We all know that it is to the interest bytheplaced him in the estimation of our best people far ahead of any ring in this or any other State He had been a brave companion in arms with Breckinridge and in common with ail the rest of us appreciated and geniusbutsense must see that the fact of Breckin ridges genuis is all the greater reason why he should not be allowed to cast the Upas shadow of his influence upon this devoted land McGarveythepion of Lexingtons morals were clear cut concise forcible moderate and con servative though reasoned with the At tic salt wit that his

and give us a sample of his dis BreckinridgeProf is was simply forced on to the stage and forced to speak and he did the force and beauty that distinguish all his efforts in that line and I want it remembered to credit of Prohibition oC1casionwho have distinguished themselves in Prohibition work My purpose in the carrying out of the prograni of the evening was to have Judge Mulligan close the speeches of the day and I think that it was a mistake ol the honorable chairman W Hawkins fromiIcal death knell of Breckinridge At 210 oclock Rev R T Mathews stepped to the front of the stage and stated that as Judge Morton was com pelted to be absent he nominated Mr W Hawkins for Chairman His mo tion was quickly seconded and Mr Hawkins was elected Chairman The newspaper men present were

participation FayetteCountyprotesting against the renomination for Congress by the Democratic party of Colonel Breckinridge With a majority of our people I share the opinion that the renomination of Colonel Breckin inride would carry with it the im plication that our either ap prove of or are indifferent to the immor alities confessed by Colonel Breckinridge on the trial at Washington While I do not believe that any con siderable portion of the followers of Colonel Breckinrid e are conscious that their support of him involves such an sUPJortedfor his misfortune Christian forgiveness of his sin or the belief that he can best serve his district in Con gress a close analysis of such reasons supports the conclusion stated Some of such reasons while creditable to man nature but illustrate misguided responses of generous nature and some exigenciesof such reasons clearly shows that his confessed immoralities are minimized or that forgiveness is confounded with the issue stated from which there is no escape I can not doubt that a renomination of Colonel Breckinridge will be disastrous to the best interest of the Ashland District the State of Ken tucky and the Democratic party of the nation These times impose duties up on every member of the Democratic par tyeach of us must meet that duty and I have confidence in the intelligence and integrity of my party and I can not doubt the Democraoof the Ashland district will issue presented to them as they have the is sues in the past and that the result will be approveIdulge in harsh or hard words in criticis ing those who differ with

May 94 Mr Moore I would like to ask you a few questions not that I pride myself on my intellect or learning You say you believe Jesus was a good man and also that you are a friend to woman Why should you believe Jesus was a good man did he misrepresent himself in claiming to be the son of God In respect are you a friend to woman Would you take the faith in God from them and place them back in heath enism You say you would give woman the ballot I would vote if I voting stop the saloon drunkeness and and corruption thats all There are enoughmen to make the laws and gov ern the country if

human being to help me I turned in prayer to the great good all powerful God forhelp He lifted a great weight from my heart and soul then I could smile and even feel happy You may say that I am just a

that is as he suggests thick headed goes without sayingbut in addition to is like Breckinridge a damned liar The man R is probably like some of the other psucdo writers against me in the Press a mere figment of the Press vivid but maudlin imagination and un til his personality is plainly given in the PresS my language is to apply to the whole Press gang In the last issue to a Mar mnMahoney of St I

madehimand good of earth have been what their mothers and not their fathers have made them It is impossible that any man who has only sense enough to write the card in the Press construe that language to be defamatory of the name of Christ and his holy mother and he maliciously and knowingly lied when he wrote that to why that assembly appointed me itsSecrctary is a question for them and not me to answer Hut I it was because tine people of this ex o ou n and a few of his pajs like R do nT consider blasphe y a crime and do consider Breckin ridges distinguished immorality a crime and they wanted me for a Secretary because my editorial calling fitted me for the purpose and because in a meeting the purpose of which was to discuss the immorality of Breckin ridge and not the blasphemy of Moore it was fitting to seclect as a Sec retary a man who has been prominent as an opponent of Breckinridge Editor C C Moore made a point in his first revived BUDE that struck a responsive chord in every merciful breast He said no doubt readers were expecting him to score Breckinridge as he had done in the days of hia success but that now that noble stag be cause of great weakness had been des
