Past Forgotten and Success Now Assured STORY OF HOW IT WAS ALL DONE i Democrats of Kentucky are united once more and all factions who have fought each other so hard are now standing together fighting for the suc cess of the Democratic ticket It was not a sweet dose for some of them t 4and some of them do not like It but they are not going to bolt and will be 11found supporting Bryan this fall Gov J C W Beckham failed to carry out the programme which he had out lined and did not control the conven tion as his friends claimed that he i would He could not prevent the election of Cal W B Haldeman as delegate from the State at large to the Rational Convention and for this reason harmony prevailed It was a great convention from a standpoint of Democratic success All the leaders of the party made speeches In which they invited everybody to come into the Democratic party and the bolter is to be dropped It was forgotten in the convention on Thursday the only man who referred to the subject other than in a spirit of harmony was Gov Beckham who could not resist the temptation to dog the men who had not supported him in the Senatorial race last winter i In a spirit of harmony and to show that the past is forgotten and the Democracy of Louisville stands with the Democracy of the State for the success of the Democratic ticket Col W B Haldeman speaking for the delegates from the Fifth Congres sional District asked the Demo- craticIS tate Convention to extend to Gov C W Beckham an invitation to to them Foranswer to a call of the dele a- gatesI Col Haldeman responded only to suggest that the convention hear Gov Beckham and acting on this suggestion the i convention enthusi rastlcally called for Gov Beckham The latter responded to the call and spoke after he had shaken hands with Congressman A O Stanley his late opponent for the position of temporary chairman of the convention The two men shook hands t in the presence of the convention and Beckham made ay speech In he said that although he was jltGov he was for the Democratic and no matter how many times he was beaten or how often he was still for the Democratic nominees and he and his friends would stand for them at all times Coming from the man whom he had attempted to beat for a place as dele gate to the National Convention from the Stateatlarge and after the for mer leader of the Democratic party had been defeated on a square show 0 down among the delegates to the con vention the action of Col Haldeman was warmly applauded and the cheers which followed his suggestion that Gov Beckham be Invited to the plat form showed that the convention was for harmony and opposed to anything being done that would tend to prevent the Democrats of the State in Louisville as well as outside from getting together for Bryan this fall The delegates went wild at the suggestion from Col Haldomanas it was unexpected but thoy were quick to aCe that it meant a full and complete r f ili harmOny programme This incident which was sprung on the convention suddenly Just b the adjournment was the the Democratic State to select delegates to th Convention revise the r Democratic party and the party committees It keynote of the convention and the one word which was heard was bar mony and it was spelled with a large and Juicy capital H for there was nothing to it but that the Democrats shoulderI Gov Beckham took the stage and declared that although he and his friends had been beaten they were for the Democratic ticket and the Demo cratic nominees and would be found supporting them and when Gov Beckham and Congressman Stanley greeted each other the latter flushed from his victory in the race for tem porary chairman the convention plauded the harmony programme which was outlined and supported by Col Haldeman and Col John H Whallen and the delegates from LouisvilleGov said that he was bea ten but he took his medicine squarely and his speech brought together the factions so that when the State Con vention came to an end after a snort session the only Idea was that there should not be any factions longer that the troubles and splits of the past should be forgiven and forgotten and the prodigal should return to the fold not to be chastised but to be welcomed and made much over as was the prodigal son In the parable Six Democratic leaders were elected delegates to the National Convention form the StateatLarge They were Gov Beckham Congressman Ollie M James Col W B Haldeman Sen ator James B McCreary John CC Mayo and Senator T H Paynter These men represent all conflicting Interests and will cast the vote of Kentucky for Bryan Ury Woodsons election as National Committeeman is assured and he will not have any opposition for the place on the National Democratic body Tho State Convention was for Mr Wioodson and the delegates of the National Convention will be for him to a man iMr Wioodson has a chance to be chairman of the National Com mittee as his name has been sug gested prominently for the position The Hon Henry Prewitt of Mt Sterl ing was elected chairman of the Democratic State Central and Execu tive Committees George Speer Wil- lSucceed Percy Haley George Speer of Anderson county has secured enough pledges from the members of the new State Central and Executive Committees to elect him secretary to succeed Percy Haley MT Speer has more than enough votes to land him in the place and ho will be elected secretary at the first meeting of the new committees which probably will be In a few days after the National convetlon Mr Speer was in the Auditors office under Judge S W Hager and has a great many friends all over the State Bryan and Watterson GonventionI1Upon taking the chair at the Demo cratic State Convention Congress man Stanley read the following tele gram

Kentucky and In vita delegation to stop off on its way to DenverW J BRYAN HENRY WATTERSON ANOTHER OPERATION Mr Lewis H Finnell who some weeks ago underwent an operation at the Norton Memorial Infirmary In Louisville and since his return home has not been progressing as rapidly as he wished returned Wednesday to the Infirmary where he had another operation performed Thursday morn Ing Ho was doing nicely last night and hopes to be well enough to return home In aweek or so t Lfj6llTSSETTLEDe a Session Leaders Battle At Hotel Wednesday Night Beckham Withdraws In Face Of Defeat LIVELY AND EXCITING SCENES It was all settled Wednesday night before the convention had ever met and before many of the delegates even reached Lexington The program for the Democratic State Conven thin which was held In Lexington on Thursday was all mapped put and arranged before the leaders went to bed Wednesday night or really on Thursday morning The first fight was the selection of a temporary chairman of the convention and it meant that the side which won this would have control of the convention and would put through the plans are ranged Gov Beckham and his friends were fighting desperately seeing that the tide was going against them and finally Gov Beckham threw up his hands and quit He simply announced that he would not be a candidate for temporary chairman and then the Beckham forces surrendered all along the line and the allies Congresman Ollie James and Ben Johnson and the others who for the sake of the party success believed it best that Governor Beckham should not be allowed tp control won everything It was a lively scene in the Phoenx Hotel Wednesday night when things were stirring and the fight was in progress Gov Beckham thought he would be able to control the conven tion He had been deluded by his friends and went into the race for temporary chairman under a misapprehension as to the real conditions When he sound that he would be beaten and that he would be humili Inlthedefeat So strong was the opposition to Gov Beckhams programme as understood by the convention and so com pletely was the convention against him that there was talk of beating him for delegate to the national con vention from the Stateatlarge and had he no withdrawn as a candidate for chalrman It is possible that he would not have oeen sent to Denver Senator Thomas H Paynter had the fight of his life to get on the delega tion and it was only by putting on six that he was able to go as the Big Four Beckham McCrearj Haldeman and ames could ihave been beaten and would certainly have been aent to Denver no matter who was in the race In the Interest of harmony it was decided to send six delegates in stead of four and this let Senator Paynter In Seeing not but defeat in store for them friends o Gov Beckham made frantic efforts to effect a compromise with the other side by which both A 0 Stanley and Gov Beckham should withdraw as candidates for temporary chairman of the conven tion and let Jere Sullivan of Rich mond be the presiding officer of the conventionIt proposed by the Beckham followers who saw that their leader were beaten that both the announced candidates should withdraw and let Mr Sullivan be the chairman Mrs Sullivan said he was in no sense a can2hlateswJthdrew nameWith hIs race already won Mr Stanley declined to withdraw as lie bad been a candidate for the position- of temporary chairman of the State I Convention for two months and Gov fieckham had announced only at the eleventh hour when It was apparent only purpose in announcing ididfl was to bring about a the Second district Congress Ir Stanley could not see why he had been a candidate for two mon and had his race won should withdraw at the last minute so he declined the proposition Every effort was made by the Beck ham forces to get a compromise al though while this effort to compro mise was going on the managers of Gov Beckhams campaign were giving out interviews that under no circum stances would Mr Beckhams name be withdrawn as a candidate for temporary chairman of the convention Mr Stanley could not see why he should withdraw when he had his race won and he declined all propositions His friends who had been pledged to hIm for several weeks were solidly behind him and he had such a lead In the race that it was generally conceded that he could not be defeated It was estimated that Mr Stanley will have perhaps 200 votes to spare in the race for tem porary chairman of the convention and that he would win in a canter Even the friends of Gov Beckham Continued on Page

the De mocratic caucus when the Legislature meets next time Mr Shanks has been a candidate for some time George Wilson said Thursday at Lexington that he thought he would come back as a member from Union county and that Lhe did return he would be a can didate for Sjpeakeij Mr Schoberth also announced at the convention and began his canvass for votes actively at Lexington Mr Wilson was called to the chair frequently during the session and showed that he has firmness and abilty in the chair Franklin county Democrats are In terested In the candidacy of Mr Scho berth who is their neighbor and

fully hurt Walter Logan received a gash on the head Roy Parrotts shoulder was crushed and Will Fields was badly cut about the hands Their injuries were dressed and the party was able to return home today PACKING PLANT BURNED Kansas City Juno 12Flre that started before daylight in the million and a half dollar packing plant of Nel son Morris Co in Kansas City Kan had by 9 oclock progressed so far that it was feared the entire struc ture would be destroyed At that hour dynamite was being used to stop the flames Two laborers were killed and another was perhaps fatally in jured BY THE PEOPLE All Precinct dmnitteeinen Will Be Elected Important Changes Made In Party Laws OfficeHolders Barred From Holding Places GRAHAM VREELAND DRAWS RULES New party rules which it Is be lieved will tend to prevent any fraud in primaries or conventions and which will put the people closer in touch with the committeemen were adopted by the Democrats of the State in convention at Lexington These party rules are but slightly different from the rules which were adopted four years ago and which were writ ten by Graham Vreeland What changes were made this time were made at the suggestion of Mr Vree land and he prepared the draft of the new rules which was submitted to the Committee on Organization and accepted by them and by the convention Mr Vreeland who is a close and careful student of the political situation saw the needs for cer taro changes in the party law and went before the committee and ex plained to them these needs The com mittee approved of his suggestions and the party rules as they now exist are practically the rules which were drawn by Mr Vreeland After devoting six hours to the work of drafting rules and laws gov erning the Democratic party In Kentucky for the next four years the Committee on Permanent Organiza tion of the Democratic State Conven tion reported to the convention shortly before midnight ana with few exceptions the laws remain the same as have governed the party since the last State Convention While only a few changes were recommended by the Committee on Permanent Organ ization and later adopted by the con vention those made are regarded by the members of the committee and a great majority of the Democrats who heard them read in the conven tion as being for the great good of the party Perhaps the most important change made in the party law has to do with the selection of precinct com mitteemen and in the future all such committeemen are to be elected by the will of the Democratic voters of the respective precincts of which they desire to be committeemen This Is regarded by Democrats in attendance at the convention as be ing one of the best rules made here for the Democratic party In Ken tucky and the change is one which has been asked for by perhaps a greater number of Democratic voters through their delegates than any other change recommended by the Committee on Permanent Organization One of the most important changes recommended by the Committee on Permanent Organization is to the effect that the office of any State county or precinct committeeman shall become vacant upon his becoming a candidate for the nomination for any office elective by the people or upon his acceptance of any elective or ape pointive public political office It was also the will of the Committee on Per manent Organization that the action of massconventions shall be null and void unless the presiding officer gives tellers and a count upon demand of a Democrat when such Democrat shall make such a request in a masscon change which is believed to be much importance to thf Democratic party in the State was also recommended by the Committee on t Permanent Organization and is U the effect that members of the Demu cratlc State Central and Execu tive Committees can only give their proxies to a member of Uie commj ee o which ie is a member wheflTt is impossible for him to attend a meeting of the committee called Heretofore it has been the rule and generally tho custom to an absent member to give his proxy to any person he so chose but the new law adopted puts an endato this practiceie 6OVERNORMAYSOONEND Decision In Pardon Cases May Come Today Governor Shut Up With Stenographer All Day MAY BE ANSWERING HIS MAIL ONLY Gov Willson has been working at his home for two days and was not at his office at all yesterday This has given credence to the report freely circulated that he will announce his decision in the Powers and Howard cases before he goes to the Chicago Convention on Saturday afternoon He is going to Chicago Saturday leaving here In the after noon at 4 oclock for Louisville where he will spend the night He will leave Louisville Sunday night for Chicago If he Is going to decide the famous cases before he goes to Chicago the decision must come Sat urday and it is believed by manyithat he will anounce his that time The Governor had his stenographer with him nearly all day Friday and also Thursday and this makes it look like he is preparing his reasons for either granting or refusing thetpardons for Powers and Howard The Governors secretary yesterday morning sent to the Mansion a large batch of mail and it is said that the Governor has been cleaning up his correspondence before leaving for Chicago It may be that he Is writing letters and not writing a state meat in the Powers and Howard cases Lient Gov W H Cox will be in Frankfort Sunday and will be acting Governor during the absence of Gov Willson who expects to be away for a week at least Gavel Made From Wood In Old State House USED IN CALLING DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION TO ORDER AT LEXINGTONr The gavel which was used in call Ing to order the Democratic State Convention at Lexington the other day was made from a piece of wood which was nearly a century old It was taken from the present State house that old pile of stones and brick and wood which has stood for so long as the capitol of the State of Kentucky and which is soon to be rif placed by the new and handsome build ing in South Frankfort The gavel was made by Capt R E Gaines of Frankfort who is In the engineering department at the penitentiary Lewis McQuown used the gavel in calling the convention to order and that It was removed to a safe place for there was no desire to have it broken during r the convention Capt Gaines made the gavel himself He went down into the basement of the State house and took out a joist under he salrs leading into the cellar He took this piece of wood down to the penitentiary with him and turned out a handsome gavel The gavel It self aside from its history value was a thing of beauty SOLDIERS ON GUARD Newport Ky June 12Three Ken tucky soldiers holding loaded rifles in their hands and seated upon a wa gon load of tobacco passed through the streets of this city this morning causing excitement The soldiers were guarding tobacco owned by McCarthy Bros from Pendleton county rIWO NEAR THE END- eTobacco Troubles Show ceNumber Improvement of Soldiers In The Field Greatly Reduced AdjutantGSffiral Thinks Tire Worst Is Over JEW RAIDS IN LAST FEW WEEKS Tobacco troubles In Kentucky are almost at an end and the situation Is greatly Improved according to reports which have been received by the ad jutant generals department The troops which have been on duty for several weeks tire being relieved and only those soldiers absolutely needed to protect life are now being kept on duty The force In the field will be greatly reduced this week and maybe further reduced as the situation Improves This does not mean that the soldiers are going to be called s however They are going to be kept on duty wherever they are needed but Adjt Gen Johnson said today that the need of soldiers now is to protect the lives of the men who have had the courage to tell of the outrages which had been perpetrated upon them Organization of the men who are raising tobacco and their formation into a compact body with leaders and prearranged signals has had much to do with the present condition The men who are growing tobacco hav formed themselves into a compact or ganization with every man fully pre pared to protect himself or his prop erty This organization has made it dangerous for night riders to be about and in any district of the State where night riders operate they take their lives into their hands when they start out on a raid The growers by that is meant the men who do not belong to the Burley Tobacco Society and who are planting tobacco this year tire fully able to take care of them selves and to protect their crops Of course one thing that has tend ed to help the situation in the Burley district Is the fact that nearly every tobacco patch which is to be planted has already been planted and it is a very different proposition destroying a plant bed from destroying a field of growing tobacco To destroy a field of growing tobacco Is a task one that re quires a great deal of time for atten tion would have to paid to each plant and In a ten or twentyacre field this would mean a job of several days t Once the tobacco plants are set out t in the field it will be almost out of the question for the field to be cleared- of tobaco without its being known and theiproceedings It Is believed that there tobaccoIi tcases where the tobacco plants have actually been set out in the field the plants will be permitted to grow with Iiout molestation The soldiers and the association of men who do not belong to the nocrop movement have had the desired effect of stopping the night rider raids and there has been no outbreak In the last few weeks that has been serious The Adjutant General and the Governor are breathing much more freely now t and think that things are so shaping themselves that there will be no more trouble They hope that the tobacco war is at an end and that Kentucky Is to have peace and quiet for sometime to come It Is believed that the barn burning will stop and that there 4will not be reprisals for previous barn burning or attacks by the night rid ersGen Roger Williams who has been in command of the soldiers in Bracken county and the district around that center of disturbances has been re lieved of duty and an officer lower In r rank has been given command the s situation improving so much that it was not thought necessary to have Gen Williams on duty Gen Williams held a conference with Gen Johnson Sunday and discussed the situation in the Bracken county district with the Adjutant General It was agreed that things have Improved up there NO HUMBUG No humbug claims have to be made for Foleys Honey and Tar the well known remedy for coughs colds and lung troubles The fact that more bottles of Foleys Honey and Tar are used than of any other cough remedy Is the best testimonial of Its great merit Why then risk taking some unknown preparation when Foleys Honey and Tar cost you no more and + is safe and sure For sale by all drug gists Destroy Plant Bed In Fayette County QUAKER ACRE FARM SUFFERS FRON DEPREDATIONS OF NIGHT PROWLERS The first destruction of plant beds which bias taken place In Fayette county since the tobacco war began occurred Saturday night when sniff cient plants to set out 100 acres of tobacco were destroyed on the farm known as Quaker Acre belonging to the estate of the late C C sore abou4K0AAfes from this city on the Huffman Mill road The plant beds were thoroughly scraped and every plant torn up and destroyed Quaker Acre belonged to the late C C Moore widely known as editor of the Bluegrass Blade and a freethink er and who called himself the heath en editor Since Mr Moores death the farm has been rented to John Phelps a well known real estate deal er of Lexington who has placed the farm in charge of David Florence a tenant Mr Phelps and the tenant had decided to plant about ten or fif teen acres of tobacco believing that the situation had become sufficiently settled to raise a crop with safety They did not reach this conclusion till late however and as they wanted to be sure of plenty of plants they sowed beds sufficiently large to raise enough plants for a crop of about 100 acres Good Attractions Coming To Capital Theater Frankfort is to have a chance to see some of the best attractions on the road next season when the Capital theatre under the management of J M Perkins will be In the circuit for seed shows All the road companies which come to Kentucky playing one night stands will play Frankfort and that means that the people here will get plenty of the theatre this winter Mr Perkins expects to make money out of the theatre and to dp this lie knows that It is necessary to have the best attractions that can be secured He Is now booking his shows for next winter and will have as good as can be obtained believing that Frank fort people will patronize the homo theatre If the plays given are worth seeing The theatre now has good moving picture shows with Illustrated

Changes His Mind At The ofGOVERNOR WILLSON PLAYS IN RAIN Caddies those small urchins wh anid for balls are no respectors of SenatorLor kings for that matter no dif i ferent to them from any ordinary f mortal Onp of the caddies at the Country Club was much tickled the other day when Gov Wlllson foozled a brassy shot and snorted with gie because he was caddying for the Go ernors competitor Whether or not c he knew It was the Governor Is a question but It is probable that he would have sniggered just the sam He is small of stature wide of and liberally freckled and he knot gof Not that he plays himself H is too busy for that but he has seen others play and he is an expert o the game ought to be tjThe Governor was playing on the lln for the first time and the ground w not in good condition for a brassy sh so the Governor foozled Willi laughed But the next shot mad him open his eyes with adntiratio- for the Governor landed solidly on the little ball and dropped it on t green as with 175 ward shot Rain has no terrors for an en thusiastic golf player and the Go ernor is that He has been snarled up with night ride and the Powers and Howard cas that he needed a little play as was doing too much working So and a newspaper man went out a played a match They had hardly played one hole before it began to rain The game went on just the same however and the two played on in the driving rain until the n ural course of events brought the back to the club house There they sat on the porch for a while Well lets finish said the G ernor after a short while it has stopped raining They went out again but the rain had only checked up and soon w coming down hard again The gar r went on just the same though a the match of 12 holes was played The Governor left his clubs at t houseand will play golf regularly now He was like a boy turned out of school when he began playing on Monday and enjoyed every minute of It Frankfort is pleased that he has begun to play and everything is be ing done for his comfort and to make him feel at home out at the Coun Club The course has been put in r best of condition it has ever beentoand there is a decided revival of golf in Frankfort due in part

candidate for Congress subject to the Democratic convention September 3 We are authorized to announce W P KIMBALL of Fayette county as a candidate for reelection to Congress from the 7th Congressional District subject to the action of the Demo a cratic Convention September 3 No doubt about the success of the Democratic ticket in Kentucky thla fall exists now for all the factions z of the party which has been so badly split for the last tea years are once r snore united and united for some time to come The convention at Lexing ton was a sensible convention It re fused to allow personal and factional t differences to be aired and frowned down on a programme of revenge and retaliation which had been outlined by Gov Beckhiam It was for Gov Beckham and it also was for Col f Haldeman and there was no of slighting the one or the other It was not opposition to Gov Beckham that prompted them to defeat him for temporary chairman It was oppo scion simply to his known plans which were to thrash the Courl Journal and defeat Col Haldeman The Democrats of the State wanted harmony and they did not think a good way to get harmony was by dragging up the old senatorial question and all the bitterness which that contest engen dered For this reason the convention went against Gov Beckham and he was forced to withdraw 2s a candi date for temporary chairman of th convention But the convention was r still ready to do honor to him so lon fond of Gov Beckham and it wa ready to do honor to him so Ing as he showed the same spirit as actuated the other leaders Mr Beckham took his medicine gamely and met th peace overtures half way giving up his race and entering Into the har qmony programme Gov Beckham i never a quitter and he would have fought it out in the convention but for the certain knowledge that it would jure the chances of the Democratic ticket this fall If a hard fight was made before the convention itself Gov Beckham received honors from the convention of which any man be proud and he comes out or tithe convention without discredit in any way e +With Watterson and Bryan hobnob bing together and accepting each others advice and Whallen and Hal deman and Grainger all in the sa- meiboat paddling as comfortably and serenely as so many kittens in a bas ket one can expect almost anything Talk about the lion and the lamb lying down together That lion and lamb business Is a natural and prob able event compared to the other Yet the other thing did happen- In adversity and defeat the Demo crats did what they could not do in prosperity They forgot their differ ences and being surfeited with defeat have decided to all get together and take a hand at the oars to put the ship into a safe port Louisville is to be redeemed by the Democrats and Col Haldeman and Col Whallen and Charles F Grainger erstwhile boss of Louisville are all un ited The list of delegates to the State convention from Louisville read like fictionlike it was some fantastic dream Why even J T ONeal was an alternate and the oldtime leaders of Louisville Democracy in Louisville were put on the delegation HtIt must be gall and wormwood to certain people in Kentucky to have Mr Watterson called In for consulta tion by William J Bryan W 0 Bsonic time to be United States Senator from Kentucky and better known when on the stump as Billie 0 Bradley was on the war path In Chicago the other day Ho Is naturally a fighter and although he saw defeat looking pretty squarely at him he refused to give up until they had him down and out and the referee was finishing the count of ten Sena tor Bradley had as well reserved such breath as he let loose in Chicago fo the days when he will run up against the Federal machine in the Senate where he is to occupy a promfcKht posltl IP SW8Bl Hitchcock is one of those cool placid waterproof in dividuals on whom the storms may rage without even getting him wet It might have been and probably was a relief to Mr Bradley to tell Hitchcock what he thought of him but It did not change the situation and Hitchcock was not even especially interested The news reports do not show that he shed any tears but Mr Bradley spoke the truth when he said that the approval of such a primary as was held by the Republicans In Louisville- Is to seal the doom of the party in KentuckyOne e in the right direction has been taken The horse swapping has been confined to one locality and tha- is t one point gained In the effort to make the streets of Frankfort passable on county court day The General Council would do well to have all sales in pens located off the streets so that when one wanted to go down Main street one would not have to dodge cows and calves and steers and sheep and horses Another thing The streetnwith vehicles until traffic is almost stopped Main street IsI frequently so full of buggies that there is not room enough for two vehicles to pass Who gives the livery stables the right to use the streets for their own con venience We had though that the streets were for the public use One Richard W Knott Is In such a fury at the reunion of the Democratic party that he is frothing at the mouth With great gusto on Wednesday be announced that the convention would be controlled completely by Gov wouldebe beaten for delegate to the national thinkgchairsman That is just about as close as he ever comes to political truths The support of the Post has injured Gov oneething and Knott is the man who led Gov Beckham Into the greatest error governorsBobble BIngham was the only one left out of the Louisville Democratic reunion and jubilee He was not among those present when the names of the delegates from Louisville were called They said Bingham had noth lag to bring into the combination nothing to contribute to the harmony program and the Seelbach meeting has not been forgotten The Post said Graham Vreelands room at Lexington was properly twen tythree But the managing editor of the Courler Journal fooled em up a whole lot and the result was due in a great measure to his ability as a campaign manager and his knowledge of politics No man in Kentucky has a better grasp of things political or knows better how to get results Ollie M James looms large now as a potent factor in Kentucky politics and as the big leader of the Democra cy in Kentucky The convention show ed him in his true colors as a great man and a great leader With Col Haldeman Gov Beckham Stanley James Whallen Johnson and all the others in the band wagon play Ing the same tune it tlooka like real harmony and a united party once more Col John R Allens speech at Lex- Ington was a gem and it brings him to the front as one of the biggest mep in Kentucky a man who stands for the right The Evening Post says the Conven tion was controlled by the night riders and the whisky ring That sounds like Knott rie Optimist By ARD Two men blew into the office here the other morning at 7 oclock and were deeply grieved that no one was here to attend to business They had oclockrseemed like noon to them The two were from Carter county and 7 was their usual timer b work They went over to tl house shortly after oclock pected to find the machinery the State grinding along at top speed It was not grinding The grinding did not begin until some later It never does Business gets started on the square about 930 which Is a decent respectful hour Frankfort Is llkd most capitals everybody goes to bed late and gets up late The arrange ment is just as successful and much more enjoyable This talk about the beauties of the sunrise is all foolishness anyhow No sunrise could ever touch a sunset The coloring is nothing to compare to the sky when the sun Is going down and the beauty lasts so much in a sunset All this does not tak Into account one important factor which is that In the early morning one Is half asleep and nothing looks very beautiful Some man has saidand his sentiments will meet with approval that he did not at all mind sitting up until the sun rose but he certainly did object to getting up before sun rise It is all habit probably One could get used to anything Down iu Louisville there are men who start to work at 7 oclock In the evening and are on duty until 7 oclock next morning and some who begin work at midnight and they seem to get as much out of life as any others Old Judge B L D Guffy sometime judge of the Court of Appeals and member of the Legislature used t say that he did not have much longer to live and he did not intend t waste any of that time sleeping He would stay up as long as he could find anybody to talk to him and he fared all right He seemed to tidal sleep was merely a habit 0Some man some time ago wrote a book in which he attempted to show that inanimate objects are good and bad or rather usually bad His con tention was that collar buttons nos glasses and other such things were naturally perverse He said they would do the disagreeable things rath er than the agreeable and that their sole aim and object in life was to worry and irritate mankind The book was a serious and learned treatise and not merely funny It would seem sometimes that he had spoken truly Did you ever drop a collar button and find it anywhere than under the bureau or hiding behind a chair The Optimist owns a collar buttton that is a credit It is the best behaved collar button he ever had and when it drops on the floor it never runs away and hides It stays out in the open where It can be found easily without being trodden upon and smashed It never secretes itself under the bureau and forces Its owner to get down on his knees and crawl around In the dust trying to locate it It is a joy as col lar buttons go There are other but tons however that devote their entire time and attention to getting them selves lost or strayed and which are never In the proper place at the prop er time If they can avoid It by any effort on their part When a collar button of this kind can break its head off at the crucial moment when a tight collar Is being buttoned and the wearer has only two minutes in which td keep an engagement then that collar button has committed suicide with the same relish as the Japanese soldier who disembowels himself with a balls are perverse by nature They are born that way as It were They can hide in the most remark able fashion blending with the land scape so perfectly that the eye of an eagle Is required to see them and this too right out In the open If there is a hole Into which a golf ball can crawl it is certain to crawl

of those people who are playing golf 0 Talk about troubles For real trOUt bles The Optimist had them the other night and as a result he is now pull Ing for somebody to come here and start an accommodating livery stable There seems to be a good future and good money for any man who operates a stable in Frankfort where one can hire a horse and buggy without i letter of credit and furnishing the liv eryman with his complete pedigree There may be a livery stable in Frank fort which is accommodating and run on business lines but The Optimist has not found it Is yet Now the andothe reader of this column if by ofowhether or not a kick Is coming The Optimist was going out of town to make a call The distance was not great but it rained That Is a habit In Frankfort this year and it has be come customary So he went to a llv ory stable and ordered a horse and buggy sent to his boarding house at 650 At 710 no buggy One tel phone was out of commission so he could not telephone about the rig othereonly to get a long distance call While this was being juggled about and the girls In Louisville and Frank tort were trying to get connection with Evansville The Optimist waited for the buggy No buggy Finally the exchange girl said the party who had called from Evansvllle had gone out and would not be back The the stable was secured and a man an swered the phone IWhat about that horse and rig I ordered Inquired the Optimist The man who answered the phone did not know anything about it so he called another man The second man had to have things explained to him in detail and then he called a third man and It was all threshed out again with him The result was Irri tating enough They knew nothing about any rig being ordered had never heard of the order and the man who had taken It had forgotten it A new order was given for a rig and the liveryman was urged to rush things as the Optimist then was a half an hour late He hung up the phone and waited for the rig A few minutes passed and the telephone rang The liveryman wanted to know what kind of rig was wanted Wearying of this the order was cancelled and the Op timist tried to get connection with any other stable but was unable to get connection with exchange So he walked to another stable and there had to answer a whole catechism of questions and there was great doubt as to whether or not they would be able to furnish a horse The idea of also furnishing a driver seemed to astound the liveryman and he acted as though it was the most startling request In utter disgust and deter mined that rather than beg any man to hire him a horse the Optimist would walk through mud and water 3000 Suits go for ir3500 Suits go for 2350II4000 Suits go for iit1i1 II KAGIIV BROii1and blood even he walked to the country It was not so bad either If anybody knows a livery stable where the owner WANTS to hire a horse and where one can get what one wants when one yants it please telegraph The Optimist care of the News Miss

ate his supper and the men were allowed to take the flowers with them to their cells It has been usual to have religious services and give the men a half holiday on the day whta the Flower Mis r sion distributes flowers but the prison authorities were not notified of the Visit of the women today and there was no time to arrange for an oft day The warden of the prison E Ei Mudd did not know that

from there will go to the Chicago Conven tion where it is expected he will be lionized by the delegates who have heard so much about the fatuous prisoner The demonstration which was made at the State Convention probably will be repeated at the Na tonal Convention and Powers is ex pected to bo the big feature of the Convention probably eclipsing even f I a Rosevelt himself The Republican party has made Powers an Issue and has always made a hero of him and now that he has been pardoned there is no doubt about what he will do BELIEVES YOUTSEY ALONE IS GUILTY- In giving his reasons for the pardon of Powers the Governor says there is no reasonable doubt that the shot which killed Goebel was fired by Hen ry Youtsey now serving a life seu tence in the penitentiary for the mur h l der of Goebel The Governor says the evidence shows that Youtsey fire the shot and therefore was lone guilty of the murder The Governor does not say anywhere in the reasons for the pardon that he belIovestPkow ers

as a f candidate for reelection to Congress from the 7th Congressional District t I subject to the action of the Demo cratic Convention September 3 No doubt about the success of the Democratic ticket In Kentucky thll tall exists now for all the factions of the party which has been so badly split for the last tea years are once more united and united for some time tto come The convention at Lexlng ton was a sensible convention It reo fused to allow personal and factional differences to be aired and frowne- down on a programme of revenge an retaliation which had been outlined by Gov Beckhlam It was for Gov Beckham and it also was for Col Haldeman and there wes no intention of slighting the one or the other I was not opposition to Gov Beckha that prompted them to defeat hi for temporary chairman It was oppo sllon simply to his known plans whic were to thrash the Courier Journal and defeat Col Haldeman The Democrats of the State wanted harmon y and they did not think a good way to get harmony was by dragging up the old senatorial Question and all the bitterness which that contest engendered For this reason the convention Went against Gov Beckham and he was forced to withdraw jas a candi date for temporary chairman of the convention But the convention was still ready to do honor to him so lon fond of Gov Beckham and It was ready to dp honor to him so Ing a he showed the same spirit as actuated the other leaders Mr Beckham took his medicine gamely aad met th peace overtures half way giving up his race and entering Into the har mony programme Gov Beckham never a quitter and he would have Sought It out in the convention but for the certain knowledge that it would In lure the chances of the Democratic ticket this fall if a hard fight was made before the convention Itself Gov Beckham received honors from the convention of which any man might be proud and he comes out of the convention without discredit In any way e With Watterson and Bryan hobnob bing together and accepting each others advice and Whallen and Hal deman and Grainger all in the same boat paddling as comfortably and serenely as so many kittens in a bas ket one can expect almost anything Talk about the lion and the lamb lying down together That lion and lamb business is a natural and prob able event compared to the other Yet the other thing did happen- In adversity and defeat the Demo crats did what they could not do in prosperity They forgot their differ ences and being surfeited with defeat have decided to all get together and take a hand at the oars to put the ship into a safe port Louisville is to be redeemed by the Democrats and Col Haldeman and Col Whallen and Charles F Grainger erstwhile boss of Louisville are all united The list of delegates to the State convention from Louisville read like fictionlike it was some fantastic dream Why even J T ONeal was an alternate and the oldtime leaders of Louisville Democracy in Louisville were put on the delegation It must be gall and wormwood to certain people In Kentucky to have Mr Watterson called in for consulta tion by William J Bryan r W O B some time to be United States Senator from Kentucky and better known when on the stump as Blllle 0 Bradley was on the war path In Chicago the other day He Is naturally a fighter and although he saw defeat looking pretty squarely at him he refused to give up until they had him down and out and the referee was finishing the count of ten Sena tor Bradley had as well reserved such breath as he let loose in Chicago for the days when he will run up against thP1 jnachlne in thenate whereheis to occupy a promlnen t position perhaps Hitchcock Is one of those cool placid waterproof dividuals on whom the storms may rage without even getting him wet It might have been and probably was 1 relief to Mr Bradley to tell HitchcoCK k what he thought of him but it did not change the situation and HitchcoCK was not even especially Interested The news reports do not show tha he shed any tears but Mr Bradley spoko the truth when he said that the approval of such a primary as was held by the Republicans In Loulsvlll Is to seal the doom of the party In Kentucky sOne step in the right direction has been taken The horse swapping has been confined to one locality and that is one point gained in the effort t make the streets of Frankfort passable on county court flay The General Council would do well to have al streetsd1so that when one wanted to go down Main street one would not have to dodge cows and calves and steers and sheep and horses Another thing The livery stable men fill up the street- t with vehicles until traffic Is almost frequentlym notmroom enough for two vehicles to pass righthto use the streets for their own con venlence We had though that the streets were for the public use One Richard W Knott is in such a fury at the reunion of the Democratic party that he Is frothing at the mouth With great gusto on Wednesday h e announced that the convention would be controlled completely by Gov Beckham and Col Haldeman would be beaten for delegate to the national thinkgthat VarSant would be elected chair asshe ever comes to political truths The support of the Post has injured Gov oneethng and Knott is the man who led Gov Beckham into the greatest error governorsBobble BIngham was the only one left out of the Louisville Democratic reunion and jubilee He was not among those present when the names of the delegates from Louisville were called They said BIngham had noth ling to bring into the combination nothing to contribute to the harmony program and the Seelbach meeting has not been forgotten The Post said Graham Vreelands room at Lexington was properly twen tythree But the managing editor of the CourierJournal fooled em up a whole lot and the result was due In a great measure to his ability as a campaign manager and his knowl edge of politics No man in Kentucky has a better grasp of things political or knows better how to get results Ollie M James looms large now as- a potent factor in Kentucky politics and as the big leader of the Damocra cy In Kentucky The convention show ed him In his true colors as a great man and a great leader With Col Haldeman Gov Beckham Stanley James Whallen Johnson and all the others in the band wagon play ing the same tune it looks like real harmony and tunited party once more O i Col John R Allens speech at Lex ington was a gem and it brings him to the front as one of the biggest men in Kentucky a man who stands for the rIght The Evening Post says the Conven tion was controlled by the night riders and the whisky ring That sounds like Knott a TTie Optimist ByARO Two men blew Into the office here the other morning at 7 oclock and were deeply grieved that no one was here to attend to business They hat been up for two hours and 7 oclock seemed like noon to them were from Carter comty aj was their usual time fot work They went over teehouse shortly after 8 ocloc and ex pected to find the machinery of tin State grinding along at top speed It was not grinding The grinding did not begin until some later It never does Business gets started on the square about 930 which Is a decent respectful hour Frankfort Is like most capitals everybody goes to bed late and gets up late The arrange ment is just as successful and much more enjoyable This talk about the beauties of the sunrise Is all foolishness anyhow Nc sunrise could ever touch a sunset The coloring Is nothing to compare to the sky when the sun Is going down and the beauty lasts so much longer in a sunset All this does not take Into account one important factor which is that in the early morning one is half asleep and nothing looks very beautiful Some man has saidand his sentiments will meet with approval that he did not at all mind sitting up until the sun rose but he certainly did object to getting up before sun rise It is all habit probably One could get used to anything Down in Louisville there are men who start to work at 7 oclock In the evening and are on duty until 7 oclock next morning and some who begin work at midnight and they seem to get as much out of life as any others Old Judge B L D Guffy sometime judge of the Court of Appeals and member of the Legislature used to say that he did not have much longer to live and he did not intend to waste any of that time sleeping He would stay up as long as he could find anybody to talk to him and he fared all right He seemed to think sleep was merely a habit o Some man some time ago wrote a book In which he attempted to show that inanimate objects are good and bad or rather usually bad His con tention was that collar buttons nose glasses and other such things were naturally perverse He said they would do the disagreeable things rath er than the agreeable and that their sole aim and object in life was to worry and irritate mankind The book was a serious and learned treatise and not merely funny It would seem sometimes that he had spoken truly Did you ever drop a collar button and find It anywhere than under the bureau or hiding behind a chair The Optimist owns a collar buttton that Is n credit It is the best behaved collar button he ever had and when It drops on the floor It never runs away and hides It stays out in the open where It can be found easily without being trodden upon and smashed It never secretes Itself under the bureau and forces its owner to get down on his knees and crawl around In the dust trying to locate it It Is a joy as col lar buttons go There are other but tons however that devote their entire time and attention to getting them selves lost or strayed and which are never in the proper place at the prop er time if they can avoid it by any effort on their part When a collar button of this kind can break its head off at the crucial moment when a tight collar Is being buttoned and the wear er has only two minutes in which to keep an engagement then that collar button has committed suicide with the same relish as the Japanese soldier who disembowels himself with a balls are perverse by nature They are born that way as It were They can hide In the most remark able fashion blending with the land scape so perfectly that the eye of an eagle Is required to see them and this too right out In the open If there Is a hole Into which a golf ball can crawl it is certain to crawl there 13190 A

accommodating livery stable There seems to be a good future and good money for any man who oper ates a stable in Frankfort where one can hire a horse and buggy without letter of credit and furnishing the lIv eryman with his complete pedigree There may be a livery stable In Frankfort which Is accommodating and run on business lines but The Optimist has not found it Is yet Now the facts in the case will be related and the reader of this column If by chance there are any can judge of whether or not a kick is coming The Optimist was going out of town to make a call The distance was not great but it rained That is a habit In Frankfort this year and it has be come customary So he went to a livery stable and ordered a horse and buggy sent to his boarding house at 660 At 710 no buggy One tel phone was out of commission so he could not telephone about the rig over one phone and tried the other only to get a long distance call While this was being juggled about and the girls In Louisville and Frank fort were trying to get connection with Evansville The Optimist waited for the buggy No buggy Finally the exchange girl said the party who had called from Evansville had gone out and would not be back The the stable was secured and a man an swered the phone What about that horse and rig I ordered inquired the Optimist The man who answered the phone did not know anything about it so he called another m nThe second man had to have things explained to him in detail and then he called a third man and it was all threshed out again with him The result was irritating enough They knew nothing about any rig being ordered had never heard of the order and the man who had taken it hall forgotten it A new order was given for a rig and the liveryman was urged to rush things as the Optimist then was a half an hour late He hung up the phone and waited for the rig A few minutes passed and the telephone rang The liveryman wanted to know what kind of rig was wanted Wearying of this the order was cancelled and the Opt timist tried to get connection with any other stable but was unable to get connection with exchange So he walked to another stable and there had to answer a whole catechism of questions and there was great doubt as to whether or not they would be able to furnish a horse The idea of also furnishing a driver seemed to astound the liveryman and he acted as though it was the most startling request In utter disgust and determined that rather than beg any man to hire him a horse the Optimist would walk through mud and water and blood even he walked to the country It was not so bad either If anybody knows a livery stable where the owner WANTS to hire a horse and where one can get what one wants when one wants It please telegraph The Optimist care of the News

Goebel murder case has be come one of the most noted prison J rsln the United States on account of the numerous trials he had been through Powers has been In Jail for eight vears HP has been aonvlct ed three 1s forbe murder o Goe t 1 bel once being sentenced to death The whole country Is watching Ken J tacky and the Powers case Jrnda re View of It Is interesting Many dozens ttof articles have been written about FPthe case In all parts pf the country ovefr 7 time and agan become tired of hearing about It The following is a review of the Powers case and the troubles leading up to the murder of Goebel tInJanuary 1900 came the tragedy had had all the 1895tiferetoreWt electoryad on the face of the returns in m ber 1899 were sworn In and were given posseslon by their Republican predecessors The Democrats had 1the Legislaturea majority of fo- uriteen In the Senate and of eighteen House The Democrats had filed contests before the boards ap pointed by the Democratic Legislature to hear and pass upon election contest nominal plurality over otaGoebelvote of 408000 the pluralities of the other Republicans were similarly email Under the Constitution of Kentucky the Legislature was charg 1ed with the duty of finally deciding all for governor and lieutenant governor under the socalled Goebel law the Legislature was also the i court pf final appeal for all contests brought before the returningboards which it appointed That is the JDemocratic had two legal chances arbitrarily or justly to oust the Re publicans state officers or Taylorltes n t and to install themselves If the re turning boards should refuse to do the I Work the Legislature could do itand i from the Legislature the only appeal n was to arms and civil war Orders from 3G6vernor Taylor and letters have been published aborning that he got the militia such com zanies as could be counted on in read after a brawl in January A few days after a brawl between a Republican and a Democrat in rankfort he had several companies of militia secretly put under arms and kept in readiness at the armory It does not anywhere appear that there was anything In i the temper of the people of Frankfort or of the Democrat to justify this but there were rumors of Demo crlts mustering In force and the Taylorltes put forward other rumors In Justification of Taylors action L though It must In fairness be remem i tiered and noted that as the Demo crta had a majority pi the Legislature their was one of peace andI order and electoraloutrage under forms of law If outrage It was It IB difficult fort fairminded person toI understand why Governor Taylor should have assembled militia except t In preparation for armed resistance k to the electoral decree of the Legis lature though those decrees whatever they might be would be binding un t der the explicit mandate of the Con t Btitution of the State L v Caleb Powers the de facto secre f tary of state hastened up into the v mountains whence the came and here r assembled and caused to be brought r down to Frankfort to attend the ses Blons of the contestboards a band of r r4 about a thousand Taylorlte moun rrsineers The unlmpeached tests 1 H Wony Is that they came drinking and tshooting out of the carwindows that they conducted themselves fairly r well except in speech while they lfr were at Frankfort that when they fleft on January 25th after having ac nothing they fired fare fwell volleys from the carwindows teft While they were at Frankfort they l Indulged in the wild and murderous fe talk to be expected from them in the circumstances It is testified by wit jjiliesses whose character the defense 0 does not attack that these men vent ed freely all sorts of threats to kill tefc Goebel Indeed a reading of the evi t deuce makes it impossible to doubt lthat the expeiency of killing Goebel o virtue and duty of killing him I I methods of killing him constituted a large part of the conversation 9f this 1 mysterious mob which slept ih the State House and lounged In its corri dors and In its grounds with revolv era and Wlnchesters in full view r Did Caleb Powers Intend this to be- anf armed mob He says it was a iyyband of peaceful citizens come peace rL tally to protest and to testify before iJr t tie contestboards There unre isLuted gnd tilnieached testimony 4ii to the contrary In a letter he wrote to the adjutantgeneral the requesting him to issue orders to twP relutaht mountain companies to join in that descent upon Frankfort PoW erssays We must have fcose mert t hM MW Ve are undertaking a s rlous matter and win we must In a letter which Powers brother John wrote to aPowers henchman Militia Sergeant Ricketts of Coalport there are these words Como to town Wed hesday with all the men up the prepared to 1eavSay nothing about ItLet the men know they are to leave but keep quiet Bring what guns you can Shotguns C Caleb would rather they be brought Wednesday Just after night Wear a cit hens suit of clothes Again a young woman then a Miss with whom Caleb Powers talked while In the mountain region collecting protestors testifies that he called on her that he said they were going to fight rather than be robbed Dur- Ing the time he took a pistol from his pocket and said that was his business there now I asked him if he would not hate to be killed and he said ye and I asked him if he would not hate to kill anybody and he said yes but he would rather do it than be robbed He said that before he would be robbed he would go in there and kill them himself Toward the end of January Taylor and Powers especially Powers were filling the streets of Frankfort wit armed men who breathed threaten Tags and slaughter against Democrats and Goebel that Powers and Taylor still further electrified a surcharged atmosphereThe decided that under the law they had no authority go back of the face of the returns they so reported to the Legislature and the Legislature appointed coin mlttees from its body to hear the con testy promptly filed with it by Goebel and the other Goebel candidates for state offices The main body of th mountaineers withdrew leaving however for a purpose which has not been explained by the defense no less than two hundred of their number to continue to lounge threateningly about the State House corridors and grounds The contests were up to the Legis lature and everybody knew what the Legislature would do as surely as Goebel remained alive to nerve It to disregard the ominous Taylorlte preparations which had overawed the contestboards- On the morning of January 30th Caleb Powers left for western Kentucky He says that his purpose wa to assemble there and bring down to the capital another body of protesters thse Legislature committee It is cited b his friends as proof how determined he was to be lawabiding that he was thus assembling witnesses when in the then state of factional fury It was a foregone conclusion that the Goebel l Legislature would eject the Taylorites from the states offices and would seat opponentsview that this absence on a patently useless mission was deliberately and crimally opportune The legislative contest committees were to convene at 230 p m on tlla January 30th It was generally assumed that they would quickly hear the testimony as to the Taylorite Re publican frauds would wave aside or minimize the testimony as to Demo erotic fraudb would report to the Legislature in favor oS the contestants who would be sworn In probably before the sun went down At 1130 that morning as Mr Goe bel was on his way across the House grounds to the chamber o the Senate of which he was a member he was shot down and mortally wounded by a bullet which it is now admitted by all came from a window of the private office of the secretary- of statethat is from Caleb Powers private office As soon as the county authorities recovered from the wild confusion Into which they and the whole town were thrown they hastened to the State House to begin an investiga ion of the assassination They found the State House grounds guarded by militia they were denied admittance beyond professions of willingness to assist and those ex press Ions of regret and horror which might or might not have been per functory they got no assistance what ever from the encltadeled tenants of the State House towards solving the mystery of the assassination Nor was any serious attempt made by the officials within those military lives to find out wife had committed the rime though they remained there more than a month If the present t t theory of the defense as to the crlmo is valid those officials must have known who shot Goebel wifnin a few hours after he fell Yet Youtsey the man they now accuse was not even questioned by Taylor or by Powers or so far as the testlmony Bhows by anyone within those lines Six weeks later Taylor still holding out as governor issued pardons to Caleb Powers and to several others not cused mid Powers ventured through the militia lines and tried to escapee from the state in a militia uniform Finally Taylor himself tied first to Pennsylvania then to Vashlngton thence to New York an ee ing from demand fo r eflea to Indiana where es protected against extraitheRepublican governor oTrthat state on the ground that he would not have a fair trial In Kentucky The Legislature proclaimed there dying Goebel and his associates on the Democratic state ticket elected Goebel was sworn in when hedied on February 3rd the Democratic lieutenantgovernor a clean able honest young man was sworn In as his successor The Republican and antiGoebel members of the Legisla 1ture had refused to participate lit the electoral proceedings in the hope of making a case for the Supreme Court of the United States But the preme Court decided that it had no authority to Interfere and the Republican President of the United States refused to heed Taylotfs frantic pleas for armed Federa interfer sence The

the pardon of Jim Haword Governor Willson said part In the last trial of Caleb Powers the Commonwealths Attorney staked his case on the connection of Powers with James Howard as the man whj fired the fatal shot so that if the jury found Powers guilty the ver diet would have corroborated the judgment against Howard The de fense denied that Howard fired tlie shot and c laimed hat It was fired by Youtsey and demanded an acquittal for Powers because there was no testimony connecting him with the murder If Youtsey committed It and tin the Jury voted to acquit Powers and this corroborated the gilt of Youtsey and confirms my belief that Howard ds innocent and that he has unjustly suffered confinement in jail and in the penitentiary for nearly eight years for a crime which he did not commit- For these reasons in part more Y set out in my statement upon tbe application of Caleb Powers charged as being accessory beore the fact to the murder of William Goebel which was considered at the same
