Entertained By Senator Goebel and Mr Blackburn at Bowling Green The Hostile Attitude of Certain Railroads and Bolters Explained Mnllcions An tagonsts of Kenton Arraigned and Records Read BOWLING GREEN Ky Aug 28The banner meeting of the present cam paign in Kentucky was held in this city this afternoon when between 4000 and 5000 peo pIe attended the speaking of Senator Goebel and Mr Blackburn i Senator Goebel was introduced by Judge Robert Kodes and spoke as follows T believefYoung Brown to launch the campaign of the bolters against the Democratic party 1 wish Hon John Young Brown acre here today There was not a single free railroad train there was nova single free ticket there was not r a single free lunch to help swell this proportionsbutk here IlALtGXERS ARRAIGNED Before I go into the body of what I have to say I want to say something about certain statements that were made in this community some weeks since I never assaulted a man in my life unless he first assaulted me But I ask no quarter I fear no foe Referring to ofae of his Kenton county foes Goebel pointed out that he had beaten him in one election in every precinct and on a total vote of 7 to 1 This man remarked Goebel says 1 have not changed a particle in 20 yearsIf I had been a drunkard and de bauchee said the speaker I too y Avouldyhaye changed and carry ivith ine a face similar to a pf 1 cancerous beefsteak He may talk a utm brother bufcXnever had one rsf t enttentvLry appla e1 i f andR Another opponent from the mouth of the Licking he charged with having demanded money while in the legisla ture from the Lottery Co and 1 have the originalcopy of the letter at home added Meyers drew a stipend from the lottery company and his present stand was due to the fact that he Goebel had a bill passed tak ing away that stipend This man had been defeated two years ago in Kenton county by 2 000 votes He referred to the fact that John C Droege bolters candidate for treasurer had charged this man with attempted bribery and the latter escaped the grand jury on a technicality The opposition of other legisests which he had aided in passing Along with these scorching remarks on purificationists Hallam Myers and Droege he said There is also YoH Mackoy of Cov ington He was chairman of the Palmer and Buckner and the Hindman committees of Kenton county in 1896 and 1897 he was a member of the board of directors of a turnpike corn pany when I secured the passage of a law which resulted in cutting its tolls in half and 1 thereby interfered with his business somewhat I think you ought to know the reasons that ani mate these assaults upon me As to the Louisville Dispatch and Post Senator Goebel said The Dispatch is owned by the L S N Railroad Co and every free cory of that paper and the Louisville Post is paid for out of the coffers of the L N RAILROADS AND BILLS He dwelt at some length on public acts of his which had aroused the hostility of the ailway corporations Senator Goebel discussed his fellow servants bills lie said in explanation that the liablity of the railroad corporation to its employes for injuries in the service should be the same as it is to the traveler If thr ugh the neglect of an employe a stranger is injured the company is responsible but if one employe is injured by another in responsibleshould be the same to the employe who hazards his life every day as it is to the ordinary traveler I have had several letters said Senator Goebel asking me what was my position with reference to double headers and whether i would recom- mendj to the legislature if elected gov t ernor the passage of a law prohibiting the running of double headers I want againstJdoubleme explain what is meant by double headersIt double the nnmber of cars in one train to which there are two en gines and one crew of men The em ployes on the second engine have no chance to in case of a wreck They arc oxedup as in a box car and that is why the employes oppose it They think their safety outweighs the saving to the railroad company by dis pensiug with an extra crew This is the law in some other states and should be here If any citizens de serve protection it is the railroad em loyes Now if this is unjustifiable Hostility I want to confess my guilt Senator Goebel said that during the strike in 1891 some railroad men were thrown into jail and he was called upon by the representatives of the railway order to defend them at Cov ington He not only did this but also went on their bonds got them acquit ted and without charging them In fee He was glad he had done that and would do it again If that was unjus tifiable hostility to the railroads then guiltThe eight hour employment law and in the gen eral assembly he made an effort to secure the passage bf a law limiting the hours they would be required to serve And I am for such a laity now he added If 1 get to be governor I shall continue to favor legislation qf the same character because I believe it is right If there are any railroad employes in this audience I hope they clearly understand my position in these matters iAs 7Q J noWN Speaking of John Young Brown Sen ator Goebel said I charged srVeral days since that a feW hours before I was nominated publicationTimes suggesting to the state convention his own nomination by the very delegates that nominated me I dont care to add anything towhat I said ex cept that I didnt get the information from Senator McChord who refused to answer a letter which Iwrote to him upon the subject When Gov Brown tried to get the nomination from the same delegates that nominated me complaintIfBrown Stone or Hardin I would have been the first to march up loud ap plause to the footlights in Mu ic hall andcall upon my friends to support the nominee The contortions of certain candidates make me smile They seem to think I was running for amusement Each one thought I ought to have giv en the nomination to him Laughter Brown seems to think I sent Me Chord and Woodson to his office to of fer him the nomination but Brown can not find a mau in Kentucky who willsay I didnt try my very best to get that nomination and if anybody thinks I will not try to win they are very much mistaken ills SILVER RECORD x The speaker said Brows had referred to his Goebels record on the silver question The Senator did not like to parade his own acts but since Brown had referred to them he wouLt call their attention to some facts Here viewed his record as a man showing his support of Bryan in 1895 showing his record jn the state senate at Frankforty i f7demnRcr tea s to 9nii mitrt Beni iI1 61 ituaut Tou YoungBrowntular regretted Gov Browns present course Mr Goebel said he was chairman of the Kenton county campaign commit tee in 1S96 and there in the home of John G Carlisle there was tunneled out for Bryan a majority that was 500 votes greater than that which the county gave to Cleveland in 1893 The speaker said that during the 1896 campaign when asked for a con tribution to the campaign fund he gave 5700 in cash I dont know whether any other person in Kentucky gave 5700 for Bryan said Mr Goebel but if there YoungBrownThe speaker proceeded into an ar raignment of republican principals and republican methods Senator Goebel said addressing him self to any discontented persons who might be present that if they found any good reason in the proceedings of the Louisville convention to cause them to oppose any one for them not to vote for him but to vote for the uptoSenator Blackburn in a ringing speech electrified his hearers He said Goebel had told them that the fight was whether the Democraticor the lie publican party would control for the next four years in Kentucky but he as serted that it was a question pf control for the next 40 years He declared that manyboltingof the public could not be diverted from the fact that the fight was be tween Goebel and Taylor and not be tween Goebel and Brown or Brown and Taylor French Romance of ToDay People in England are constantly complaining that French novels are not what theywere says a writer in the Contemporary And this is true the crop is slighter and the quality has abruptly varied Ye cannot gather grapes of thistles A few months ago one of the first of French novelists told me how impossible he found it to lose himself in an imaginary world while such ominous rumors fill the streets of Paris The intricate Chinese puzzle of fashionable psychology seems after all a trivial thing compared to the tre mendous issues of reality And if the author feels this judge of the senti ments of the reader The effect of the affaire Dreyfus on literature has been the sudden disappearance of the ro manatrois the old provincial theme of the married lady her husband and her lover After a brilliant renais sanceafter occupying almost the whole area of fiction this theme has subsided and if people read and write novels still to a certain extent these novels or at any rate the best of them have a wholly different motive interest and intent An Extra Ingredient No he said reflectively this isnt like mothers pie And why notshe waspishly asked Because he mildly explained

the campaign progresses the of that statement becomes a more manifest The ques this year is whether the corporate shall make construe execute laws or whether the o lien Applause5Senator the result of the national election wills determined in advance by the infli ences of corporate wealth He said that the same result was sought the next year by the same influences and that they had beguntheirfight already in Kentucky lIe to the fact that Mr Belmont the executive head of the Louisville and Nashville rail road company had notified the people of Kentucky that his corporation pro poses to contest the result in the state yearBefore this campaign is closed said he you will see the railroad em ployes of the state marched through the streets of your cities for political effect as they were in 96 I want to say a word right here to the railroad men Jn 1890 the ears of the working men were reached through the public press in the shop and in any way they could be reached and workmen were told if you vote other than the Repub lican ticket the fact will be known to your employer and that is a threat BALLOT WILL BE SECRET The ballot ought to be secret under our present system I want to say to you that under the of the election law and under the administration of democrats no railroad lobbyist attorney or agent shall know how the vote of any railroad employe is record ed and the democratic party of Kentucky will stand by its own No lob byits shall be permitted to make any railroad mans tickit and thus learn how he voted lctaJ only repeat to railroad men the advice Bryan gavt them in 96 He said Do whatever may be necessary during the campaign to protect your weft and children from privation but when you go into the voting booth vote your true sentiments Cheers and applause CORRUPTION FUND Senator Goebel said that Democracy would be called upon to battle tre mendous corruption fund We know said he that tremendous sums were contributed in 96 by corporations arid the contributions were reimbursed by having delegated to them power of governmentconferred by people upon unworthy officials Senator Goebals prediction of the certain adoption of the Chicagoplat form and the renomination of Bryan was loudly cheered Neither in the nation or the state can army man strike monopoly in the pocketbook without incurring its dead ly enmity The mendacious and viciou attacks upon

some fine morning to find outthat the leaves on tbe6 trees have begun to blush with pride just before their fall mid that summer has gone Then we will hear from all sides Oh why didnt I do this or that 1 intended to all summer but didnt get around to itmd now it is too late says the Detroit Free Press One of the things to be deplored will be that more time was not spent in the open airat the parks on time river and at nearby country places It is so easy to set out the summer doing nothing But it is a bad habit for when winter comes again it seems like an old story mind isnt half so welcome as if the summer had been spent in com plete clniiigi This is genuine cldfash ioned picnic season mid the picnic ought not to be despised Nothing is so delightfully unconventional and re laxation of course is the basis of rest But it is a great mistake to think that a picnic is not a success unless the en tire party is roused out of bed at sun rise and the lunch big enough to feed n regiment Quantity there must be of course for everybody expects to eat too much but more than anything else have the lunch a dainty one One loesnt mind a grasshopper two in the lemonade or a family reunion of ants on the cake butif the sandwiches are thick Dud the cake is dry and other things are in the same black list not even a picnic appetite will be satisfied Eanteirn Electric Honda New York

Governor as he J14Il tie weakest of political side shov and will hardly get 5000 votes in the State IT will be observed that Bolter Brown grew hot in the collar down at Russellville over the probable removal ot ONeal and DavJs from the Board of Election Com missioners for Jefferson county but had not one word of censure for the failure andrefusjtl of the Republican Committee to recommend Phelps for reappointment If they are all honorable gentlemen as Mr Brown testified why is it all wrong toremove the Bolters and all right to drop the Republican mem ber Because the ox knoweth his owner and the ass his masters crib IN declaring he would have changed the platform of the Louisville Convention if he had been nominated Mr Brown admitil that he is not only opposed to what he calls the work of

barefaced fulselio jds against their opponents Such proceedings never gain a vote It only discredits the paper that is guilty of such fraudulent statements While charging box r sides with meanness ye arc bound to say that Win Goebel is the worst maligned man today in Ken tuck and his meanest maligners are not from the Republican party If he wassuch abloodthirsty manv as he has been represented we

along the glass at the front of the tank heads all to the front and with their bodies lapping one another diagonally with uniform regularity Sometimes at feeding time they stand r rather suspend themselves in the wa ter side by side in a uniform rank heads up near the surface andwait for the man with the food whose platformA curious illustration of the fishes tendencj to group was shown in an

by inch they cowered before their persecutors through a hundred years until at lastdthey built their village of today on heights four centuries Though bitter foes the Navajos peaceably visited the Molcis every alternate year on the day of the mysterious ceremony of the snake dance Three hundred summers ago so runs the tradition a Navajo boy while watchfing the dance fell from the of the mesa to n mangled death on the tumbled rocks far below And every second summer since when the visiting Navajoscomeon to the mesa they stand now in groups now singly at the spot where the boy fell and gaze down from the heights for hours at a time The Mokis believe the Navajos are only waiting a favorable opportunity to pounce upon them and avenge their clansmans death Recent visitors to the land of the Mokis say that on the day of the dance there is always a red blanketed Navajo on the point of rock gazing stolidly below Behind on the pile of the village and outlined against the sky is the solitary
