reelection to Congress from this the Eighth district subject to any regular action of the Democratic party mr eSINCE the return of our Repub lican brethren from the convention at Nicholasfewe frequently hea- ti said that exGovernor William O Bradley will be a candidate for Congress this fallagaistG G Gil bert However we will wager the voters of this district a rotten apple nothingthatdate for Congress again in this dis trict Ve have a personal knowl edge that Bradleys great ambition was to be Governor of this grea Commonwealth that it was th crowning political triumph of his life In the first place it is not writ down in the books that he could win in the coming Congres sional fight Upon the contrary it is virtually settled that he would be defeated No one can accuse Brad Jey of being a fool That he is no idiot or imbecile there is no one but what will admit and there is no ulan who sees the handwriting on the wall and can see it more quickly than Bradley himself With Bradley eliminated from the race the Republican nomination will go a begging The gray gel ding cannot win and the Republicans of this district know it His e not the man for CongrJsk atid never was Lewis Walker of Gar rarda protege of Bradley may possibly be induced to accept but i having no standing at home and few friends abroad he too will be overwhelmingly defeated We hear it said that exGovernor Bradley will leave Kentucky las soon as the contest cases are settled and take up his permanent residence in New York City We will be greatly surprised if Bradley ever returns to Lancaster for the practice of law There is no doubt that Bradley is a man of great mental attainment a beautifuleloquent speaker on who can get as close to thehearts ofa jury as any man who ever stood before them pleading the cause ofa criminal Socially he OJis charming a handsome man in looksIn the argument before the Su prerae Court it is quite evident that Bradley carried off the honors in the attention that he held of the Court and the audience and the effect of his marvelous speech With the great reputation that Bradley has already made for him gainedFlong brilliant fight for Tay lor1 insures success wherever he might go 0 The great metropolis of New York is the better field for the dis i P lyof his attainments because it abounds in many more noted cases rr with bigger fees It is true that there are many great lawyers who have located in that gfeat metropo lis but none of them we venture to say will merge to the front quicker than Bradley Heisa pleader as well as a jury lawyer Even New York itself is scarce of his kind We have always been an admirer of Bradleys talents as we have of the mental attainments and versatile niiiidof TZ Morrow t and should he go to New York he carries with him our best wishes The Supreme Court withheld its decision in the Kentucky Contest casee until next Monday Mrfy 2ist I IT was a source of disappoint ment to both sides when the Su preme Court failed to hand down its opinion in the Governors con test case But it will doubtless be rendered next Monday when they must as we think decide in favor ot Gov Beckham Gen Taylor left Washington and
