William O Bradley came home a few minutes last week to see to some important business and made hot tracts to Frankfort where he is employed in the contest cases THE RECORD had a short talk with him and learned that while he would locate here for ti while yet his per manent residence had not been decided upon He has had several flattering offers to practice law in the large Cities but has not yet had time to think over the matter Ha tells us that he comes away from Frankfor several thousand dollars worse off than when he went The otlice pays small salary one is required to do much entertaining and no governor has yet been able to make both ends meet during the term He speaks the highest terms of the people and says he has some very friends there and will always remember their many kindnesses and courtesies As Garrard is proud of her son THE RECORD deems it wise to give a brief synopsis of Gov Bradleys work He had more difficult problems to handle than any governor who has occupied the chair Toll gate raiding mountain fued a disgraceful session of the legislature and many other matters which had never come up in previous years were brought before him As to how well he handled them the people to be judge and they should make their verdict as citizens and not as politicians In his address at the inauguration of Gov Taylor Gov Bradley said among other things The present administration came into power under the most adverse circumstances For the first time in its history Kentucky elected a Rxjpubli can ticket The consequence was that many persons who had come to look upon the offices of the Democratic party became thoroughly and instead of giving such assistance as was proper to advance the interest of the State aroused a most partisan attitude of obstruction With one branch of the Legislature Republican control Much needed legislation rendering necessary the calling of a session In the meanwhile by economy and good management the of the State has been restored current ex penses have been promptly met every of the 1717000 paid and today we have in the treasury 1100000 This is more than sufficient to date 500000 of bonds issued by the present administration and the 500 000 issued by our predecessors The State debt except educational and and college bonds which are not re deemable but on which interest is semiannual paid has been paid and Kentucky is today practically out of The common school interest have been carefully guarded and despite many difficulties arising by reason of the decisions of Court of Appeals which reduced the revenues the per capita of the first year has been advanced and this too although legislation was The expenses of the various department of government have been decreased and not one cent has been misappopriat ed Every effort has been made to en force the law and preserve the public peace and it is cause for supreme that in the closing of the administration an excited but orderloving people should have reproache to the good name of the State countrymen the we learn that peaceful and prosperious citizens will not come among us as long as we show contempt courts and take the law into our hands the better it will be for the advancement of the Commonwealth civilized It may be in some instances that no punishment for the criminal is too severe but the law has fixed and the of any other cannot be justified We have recently passed through the most remarkable campaign for bitterness and intense that the has ever known Let us the hope that after the cyclone has swept over the State every citizen irrespective of party earnestly to to remove the debris and in the hearts of all rile a spirit of forbearance forgiveness and brotherly love Today this administration passes history and I trust may be approved by the calm and deliberate judgement of the people Four years ago upon this spot I gave the pledge that I would do the right as me to see the right and would be Governor of all the people This I have faithfully attempted to do and can truthfully say that I have the ap of my conscience No Execu tive of this State has encountered so much of storm and so little of so much of grave responsibility and so little of peace rest in the tempest I have failed to steer the ship over the course it was the darkness that misled and not the heart or brain I now down the burden that I have borne for four with a pro found pleasure only regretting that another must take it up The gave the trust to them I return it thanking them for the honor Asked in regard to the contest he said Yes Lhave been retained as counsel and there are to be I believe five lawyers to assist me As yet I am doing the work alone The claims of the Democrats that people were de pried of their suffrage in Louisville on account of the presence of the military is absurd What did the voters care for 150 men locked up in the armory there Not a single man was allowed to go on the streets in uniform even when they went indi vidually to vote Had these men been there however I am convinced there would have been the worst riot in that town that ever occured in the State Henry Watterson had publish ed that himself the other members of the staff of his newspaper and every Goebel man in town including the Mayor and the police officers had been threatened with assassination These soldiers were there

Taylor will ly appoint min to till theVacancies in the State Board of Election as he has the right to do un der the constitution The Court of Appeals has never passed on this point and I believe that part of the law will be declared 1 by them We have no fear of losing although we intend to make a fight the finish Governor Bradley has not escaped and he has not been invariably in harmony with all elements of the party which he led to victory four years ago but he has been at all times had and tortuitous circumstances have within thepast year so complete ly eradicated all differences between Kentucky Republicans that the close of his administration finds the party more harmonious and decidedly stronger than at any previous period in its history Governor Bradley has not yet ex as to any further which he may enter tain but Republicans in all section of the State are suggesting the giving of such new evidence of the partys in him as are involved in mak ing him the caucus nominee and in the event that he should not be elect ed to that place by the Legislature by proposing him for the Vice Presi dency on the ticket with William Kinley next year The retirinr L ernor needs but to

other as a circus parade and a funeral procession look together and I could not witness a thing that inconsis tent and inconvenient to cry and laugh both at the same time If we dont cage these beasts of prey some of the most attractive dudes in town will be In a short time as large in the abdomen as a nipple on a babybottle and these same little with these diminutive little and whose insignificant little resembling closely in those of a and daintily proportioned bodies having a striking resemblahce to a wasp minus the stinger and wings will venture to inflate his little stomach with a bottle full of beer and his little pistol in his hip pocket such a short little distance for him to go around after it makes night hideous by the rapid 2 s rt counties coma in Commissioners unconstitiona tot

bone much because qua the r IwY 3 ut of I a S discharge of his little pistol Now one these modern little pigmies highly inflated with stale beer and crackers might be caught by a spider at some unguarded moment when his hand was not on his little gun to protect and be carried to a ceiling and there devoured with the same speed as a spider would a fly And Mr Sober Editor I can almost heaj the little spiders cry from disappoint ment when mother spider calls her little children to breakfast poor little things fully expecting to feast their hnngry appetites upon a fat fly and find only the carcass of one little dude for their entire family Now dear Mr Sober Editor we can illy afford to lose such promising young men and the sweethearts of these little would be stampeded by the of the air castle of lovefiction and fancy which he has spent hours her build Now the death of one little dude at the breakfast table of one spider and family and the redicu lous and appalling thought that he was caught at night time drawn to a ceiling and there devoured all because he did not have his hand on his little gun would bring abont a war between the sweetheart of the deceased dude reinforced by the sweethearts of other dudes who in their turn would follow said deceased dude and the spider family the out come of which the keenest eye nor the broadest brain could determine Another apparent

through tlis grating all except his collarthro which his head will easily pass Now 11 Sober Editor a serious thought to think early morniug when we perlaps will see a collar sitting on one of these grating the dude passed through And the cellar alone will mark where he stood And a sweetheart will weep oer her caflunu e 1 dude ss i Dear Mr Sober Editor this is a few of the many dangers that are our dudes The undisputed of the town and the exercise of that right without dispute has given these tigers a title by or conquest If this is true we cant cage them and if we cant cage them they are here to stay Then we must begin with hasty step at once to remove every means by which our little dudes could become injured these nights while inflated Let stop our until Mr Ward has removed the pool or built the light house tower together with the dry cob on the bank all the cellar gratings in town are stopped and the spider lids gone together with his family to their eternal resting place I need
