E oj I KENTUCKY IRISH AMERIcAN IVOLUME XYNO 8 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JANUARY 18 1908 PRICE FIVE CENTS DEADLOCK Kentucky Legislators Agree to Disagree Over Senatorial Election w UxGov Ilcclclmm Xot Able to Control Votes Enough to Win Frankfort Is the Scene of Much Political Activity and Engineering THE END IS NOT YET IN SIGHT Tills has been a history makin week for Kentucky but what tho final result will be can not be def initely predicted at this time Ono thing seems to be certain and that is that Gov Becl ham will not be elected to a scat in the United States SenateThe air nt Frankfort where the Legislature is in session has been surcharged with political electricity ilurlng the past two days There save been occasional storms ami sonic bitter feeling displayed by the Beckham adherents Tdie antiBeck hninitcs on the contrary have been cool calm and dignified They hnvr as manly men given reason for re fusing to vote for Gov Bcckham and in so doing have won the praise of many honest men Ills Democratic opponents assert that the elevation of Gov liccklmm to a seat in the United States Senate means a death blow to Kentucky Democracy There are 138 vofes in the Legis lature thirtyeight in the Senate and 100 in the House of Representatives Under ordinary circumstances It would take seventy votes to elect One member has been ill since the Legislature began its session and on Wednesday two other members were ill and absent This left 135 members present and vQting with sixtyeight necessary to a choice Ballpting for Senator began Tuesday Former Gov W 0 Bradley rev ceived sixtyfour votes the full Republican strength ExGov Beck ham received sixtysix votes On that day separate ballots were taken in the House and Senate Representative E Lilian of Boyle county declined 4o vote on Tuesday and again on Wednesday He is a Democrat and has proven deaf to the en treaties of the Beckhamltes Repre senathe Virgil McKnight of Mason count Chit his vote on TuesdayA and Wednesday for former man J H Kehoe Representative Chris Mueller of Louisville on both days voted for Attorney David W Baird Senator McNutt of Louis ville on both days voted for John Dodd a well known Louisville at torney Senator Albert Charlton voted twice for Gen John B Castle jnan Representative Tabb of Hardin county voted for former Congressman David Y Smith on Tuesday but switched to Beckham on Wednesday Senator T Wheeler Campbell of M Cracken county voted both on Tuesday and Wednesday for his uncle lion Charles K Wheeler of Pouucah a Wednesday Senator Campbell before casting his vote against Coy Beckham made a manly and courageous speech in defending his course and told his fellowmembers that they had come to the parting of the ways It was necessary he said to put an end to absolutism and to machine politics if Kentucky Democracy is to survive There was no abuse no vituperation in his speech even though it was emotional and dramatic Occasionally he was hissed by Beckham adherents but for the greater part of his time he hind the strict attention of the joint assembly and In the end won even the admiration of the staunchest Beckham followerse Thursday brought no change in the balloting and now it appears t have settled down to a deadlock There seems to be little hope for the election of a successor to former Governor and present Senator James B McCreary during the present sec don of the Legislature Senator Me Crearys tenm will expire March 1 1009 and It now appears that Ken tucky will have to wade throughi Congress for a year or more minUH one wheel The Legislature will not meet again in regular session until January 1910 Coy Willson has it in his power to call an extra ses sion for the purpose of electing a United States Senator but in can the deadlock continues throughout the present session he will be slow to do so A majority of the Democratic legis haters have stood by Cow Beckham loyally No doubt they will stand by him as long as they see hope for his victory lIe owes them a debt of gratitude It Is ppsslole thet they will desert him and vote for some other Democratic leader rather than see victory perched upon the banners of his Republican opponent It now seems certain that Senators Oampibell JEcNutt and Charlton ami Representatives McKnlgiht anti Much ler will not recede from their position but it Inay be that they and others will from time to time

inn hued with the idea that tthw know it all and that their fathers are back numbers It is refreshing to learn that a young man particularly a young American writes to his father for advice Few there

adds It is not from such stock as this that one can hope for great scholars Americas chief hope in this direction Is from the descendants of those sections of Its founders who came here not to lu crease their material prospects 1 but because they were persecuted just wC for that tenacity to one Ideal or set of Ideals which distinguish the rev ligJous and political martyrs It is from the Mayflower stock from lthe Huguenot strain and from the Rue sian and Roumanian Jews of the present generation that one can anticipate men to rise who will apply to the realm of knowledge the same spirit of tenacity that their fathers have shown for political and religious idealsWhat do you think of that Ma flower pilgrims Huguenots and flue slan Jews From these we are ty find our scholastic saviors May the ord help lit Has not Prof Jacobs card of Lord Baltimore Has ha not heard of the thousands and tens of thousands of Irish men and women who settled in the United States and Canada from

the Very Jlev Canon Eugene McKenna parish liesetsmanner the many disadvantages un der which the peasantry and small tenant fanners of Ireland are now laboring FaJJier McKenna has sent iharkcd copies of the Dundalk Democrat to the Kentucky Irish American and it is with great pleasure that the principal points made by him are presented to our readers Father McKenna decries cattle driving but at the same time he gives minute data regarding the hard ships to witch the Irish people have been subjected He counsels patience on the part of the peasants and asks not for money but for the moral support of the Irish In the United States Canada and Australia He be gins the first of his letters too with an eucomlun for President Roosevelt It is not mere blatant lattqry It is honest admiration He says in part The eminent statesman Roose velt President of that great country the United States which numbers among its most loyal citizens many millions of our countrymen and race in hits message to Congress a few days ago referring to Wealthy Evil- Doers makes several clear and em phaitlc statements For instance Mr Roosevelt says The public and the representatives of the public the high officials whether on the bench or in executive or legislative positions need to remember that they are not those who commit the crimes known to and condemned by tIle popular conscience for centuries but those who commit crimes only rendered possible by the complex conditions of our modern industrial life corrupting legislatures making fortunes by the inflation of securi ties These forms of wrong doing in the capitalist are for more infamous than any form of embezzlement or forgery 1 Father McKenna dwells upon these utterances ot some length and then shows conclusively that the absentee landlords of Ireland are corrupting legislatures courts and officials inflating securities violating the Seventh commandment and arc guilty of at least one sin crying to heaven for vengance oppression of the poor He says in one letter It is sometimes Inaccurately ami foolishly asserted l y those looked upon as an authority that the IrteK farmers are now owners of their holdings and that the Irish land question is at last settled But these misleading statements deceive our best friends especially in America and Australia and even at home as Ireland an3 her friends can by no means permit the Irish land question to remain where it now stands unless for the shortest possible in terval It is true that we have Irish land courts and land commissioners land valuators and land values as sessors But who constitutes those courts commissions and other offi cials whose advice judgments and decisions will bring bankruptcy and suffering often in the extreme to our pegple for generations first 4n rural Ireland and soon after in our towns and cities Are not some of those officials especially those in highest places rabid landlord partisans Are not the vast majority probably more than DO per cent of those land judges and other officials of the land courts cither landlord nominees or brimful of landlord bias The great Magna Charta gives universally to the sub ject the right of trial by his peers not only in matters affecting his person but also those affecting his purse In the absence of the jury where are the rack rented tenant farmers peers or sympathizers in many of the Irish land courts or among their advisers Or why are the poverty stricken Irish farmers especially of the hills and mountains and of the other poor and Inferior lands of the country taking into account the seasons and other altered circumstances paying today much more oppressive rents than the most rack renting landlords im posed upon the fathers of those im poverished Irish peasants half a century ago notwithstanding Glad stones land act of 81 and the machinery of the land courts such as we have had during the inter vening years Surely administrative tyranny has killed or poisoned over fourfifths of Ireland at least since Mr Gladstones land act of 81 Father McKenna then passes on to the land act of 1903 by which tenants were to purchase their hold ings from tho landlords at reasonable prIces lie shows that prior to the land act of 1903 the purchase price was between seventeen and eighteen years practically seventeen and n half years Now if landlords sell their holdings at tliat price or even at nineteen twenty and twentyone years purchase the land courts are required by act of Parliament to have these holdings inspected to as certain are they security for the loans that the British treasury Is to pay time landlord These precau tions afford no protection to the embarrassed and Impoverished farm ers Once more we quote Father McKenna Tbd British treasury having handed over to the landlords pricesbequeathsannuities considering the burdens to bo attached in local taxation more oppressive than the old rack rents and to all the rate payers they leave a legacy for seventy years of unpaid annuities and other bad debts while they till to overflowing the richly stored coffers of the poor oppressed 1- tJ oc 1 c CHOICE Gut BloornsPlants and Designs at RIGHT PRICES JACOB SCHULZ THE

differ with him to dis prove his calculations He also adds But after all we are a determine race and like our fathers we should not lose hope Let us remember that unbearable financial burdens with some other disabilities thrown in constitute the twentieth century and uptodate Cromwellian methods of bleeding and crushing a people to death Irish ratepayers twothirds of you are yourselves the
