Eighth district to succeed himself subject to the action of the Democratic party We are authorized to announce G T JOHNSON as a candidate for Coun ty Court Clerk sbject to the action of the Republican party We are authorized to announce FELIX BOWMAN as a candidate for County Court Clerk suject to the ac tion of the Republican party Ve have just had the privilege of reading something like three columns of editorial matter in one of our most esteemed country ex changes which although divided and appearing under different head ings such as The Future of The Party The Political Situation c P ii is apparent that il would all appear more appropriately under one head It was evidently all written at the same time and at the same place wherever that may be and we suggest that it should all appear under the heading BECKHAM AND HIS LETAINERS IN THE SADDLE OR DEMOCRACY IN KENTUCKY BE DAMMED The bureau from which this effusion eminated seems to have only two objects in view The first is to make Mr Beckham the body soul and whole show of the democratic party in Ken tucky andsecond the total dis stuction obliteration and extinction of the Courier Journal Louisville Times and their editors from the face of the earth and the recollec tions of mankind And in eitheif venture the editoral bureau hat about the same chance of success that the calf had to slaughter the butcherThe Courier Journal and Times need no defense trom us or from anyone else for that matter Thev are more than able to take cae ofthemselves The statement of the Editorial Bureau that they and their editors are Republicans remind us of the story told of Gov Scott who was once challenged to fight a duel When the challenge was given to Scott he paid no attention to it The fighter the man who sent the challenge wait ed a short time for an answer and not receiving one went in person to see the Governor He asked the Governor if he had received tie challenge Scott replied that the paper had been handed to him Vell said the fighting man you will accept I will not said ScottHThen said the fighterHI have no couise left me excerpt to publish you as a coward which I will doUAllnght said Scott Haud when you do that you will publish yourself a dd iar and every body will know ittt But how about the other object of the EditorialBureau Do the Democrats of Kentucky desire to recognize Mr Beckham as the Democratic party of their state Has he Dot been tried in that po sition If he has not been the whole party he has attempted to run it and use it as an asset to which he had the fee simply title When he headed himself towards the United States Senate he had all toads cut and blazed in that di rection and nothing was allowed to get in his w yor stand before him He laid his plans well but uot wisely He began by having a legislature lected that would re tire Senator Blackburn from the Senate hat would redistrict the state in snch a manner that the next legislature could not help having a Democratic majority On that he was not going to take any chances That legislature was to elect a successor to Senator MrCreary Everybody knows this same man whom this Editorial Bureau wants to make the Demo ratc partyiin Kentucky was the powerihiud the legislature that = =n z passed that xrerlitrirtng illf What did the Court of Appeals bf Kentucky say of that bill when k condemned it and set it aside What do all honest and right thinking men say of such a bill and what do they think of the man who forced a legislature to pi ifI Do the Democrats of Kentucky again want such a man for a boss pIpealed to to allow the Executive Committee of his party to cihla convention for the purpose ofiorai partyIto uom 11ate in caucus the candidate for U lted States Senator that said No we will have a primary to nominate our state ticket and also to nomi nate a candidate for the United States Senate Iwill take no chan ces in this mailer 7 Do the Democrats of Kentucky approve the acts of tIns man whtn h was given unusual power by reason of the office he held to appoint the officers of the City of Louisville and of Jefferson county when he appointed men not the choice of the constituted partyIauthority in that city and or men indorsed or approved bv the rank and file of the party in that city and county hut men who were opposed and objected to byI bth these elements of the but on the other hand he counseled with and followed the wishes of the most bitter enemies of theI Democratic party in that good We can not say that he appointed republicans but we can say that at least one man whom he appoint ed to a prominent office voted fr- V S Taylor and John Marshall nnd against Goebel and himself A man who was so much interested in the Taylor adminis tration that when Taylor attempted to adjourn the legislature from Frankford and have it meet and c mpete the session at London Kentuky that man went in corn pany with John Marshall the then acting Lieut Qoverno toI London and remained with him till that farce of an attempt to hold the session of the legislature there had endedTe have nothing to say against those appointees We know only a few of them and those we do know are worthy gentlemen But we do say they were nf t men in good standing in the Democratic appointmentI party last fall Those appointments were simply an outrage on the democrats of Jefferson county and Louisville and in contempt of thousands of democrats throughout the state No sane man can say that it was not tho se appointments and other undemocratic acts on the part oi this man and his retainers that gave the city ofLouisville and the state of Ke ntucky to the republicans last fall by majorities so large that our pen refuses to wnte the figures And yet with all this andmuch more of a like kind before us this Editorial Bureau is demanding that we accept this man as our head or th ere shall be no Democratic party in Kentucky We may go further but we can not fare worse and we are sure there are some of us that will not dance to the fiddling We had hope for better things We believe this editorialbureau has made a grievous mistake We hope it will stop before it goes too far It is apparent that it still has lucid intervals and it is possible that it will yet come to its seuse The following paragraph which we clip from its production is souud and good It said Whether we were Administra tion or Antiadministration Demo plssediscussion as to who was lipht or wrong can do no gocdall that isI behind us It is the future of the party that should concern us now and this is especially true in view ofthe fact that we havea Presidential election this year This is sane and sound and we are glad to accept it It shows that the bureau has had at least one lucid interval may it not hye more But immediately after de livering itselt to the above it was violently attacked again with the Mohies and raved about the Courier Journal havingelected two SenatorsIItft behind us and follow the ad quotationOurcolumn Do we want it to remain there and their majorities to grow larger and our chances lot success grow less If tbat is the desire we should encourage the editorial bureau to continue its course ifs lOl 1r tf = niotto if it has any seems to be 10 Keep every body put of our party who has not in the past doiii its masters bidding nfto readall out of the party who will not agre to

ProIGovernor Willson Is Said to Have nounced Views on Failure of Legis lature to Enact Certain of His Fa vorite Measures How the Kibosh Was Put on the County Bill Frankfort Ky MarchlOAndiiow- the county bill Is dead unless an extra session is called to it The bill passIedvote but a parliamentary ruse was adopted to prevent it ever reaching a vote The few whisky Democrats In the senate hold the balance of power and they were willing to do any thing to anybody or for anybody to defeat the county unit bill The other Democrats were told that if they did not help kill the bill the whisky Dem ocrats would unite with the Republi cans and pass the Republican redis tricting bills the bills to oust all the Democrats from the offices at the pris ons and asylums and the bill authorizing grand juries of any county to in vestigate penal offenses In any other county in the state This put the Democrats up against a tough proposition for most of them wanted to vote for the unit bill They had but one alternative however to let the Republicans have all the offices and the next legislature or put the unit bill on the shelf They put the unit bill on the shelf Speaking of the county unit bill there seems to be much apprehension as to the real meaning of the bill The last legisla tutre passed a county unit bill that applied to every county In the state except those containing cities of the first second third and fourth classes these cities being given the right to vote on the local option question separately from the county in which they are situated What is called the county unit bill this session Is a bill to ex tend the provisions of the law passed two years ago so that no city shall have the right to vote on the liquor question separately from the county The cities claim that it is unjust to allow a county to vote away a big slice of their income and thereby force them to increase their tax rate and that it is taxation without representa tion The county people claim that the saloons In the cities affect the morals of the county and the country people ought to have the right to vote to close up the saloons This is the bone of contention extraIsession being called by Governor Will son for the purpose of having the county unit bill the redistricting bills and several other bill enacted and come of the governors close friends say he will call it The governor him self remains silent but the frequency with which he has urged the passage of these bills looks very much like he is in the frame of mind to order the extra session It was believed that no further schoolbook legislation would be neces sary in Kentucky for many years but the senate has just passed a bill on the subject and the funny part about it Is that no one seems to know just exactly what will be accomplished by it though it is claimed that the only object is to give cities and towns more latitude than they now have In theadoption of schoolbooks The bill provides that there shall be no maxi mum price fixed for books as under the existing law but that the price charged by the book companies for the books shall be no greater than that charged for books of the same quality sold in other states An amendment offered by Senator Newman was adopted providing that no maximum price shall be fixed for any particular book but the prices on a series of books shall not be higher than the fol lowing Spellingbooks 16 cents readers 190 arithmetics 1 lan guage lessons 40 cents writing beoks 32 cents composition 60 cents geog raphy 145 physiology 85 cents United States history 120 history bf Kentucky 60 cents civil govern ment 40 cents grammars 45 cents It is said here that Ginn Co of Chicago are pushing the bill and that the American Book company Is fight ing it so the bill must be in the in terest of abook company rather than In the interest of the schools It developed in the argument in the senate that someone interested in the passage of the bill had early In the session forged a letter purporting to be signed by former State Superintendent Fuqua and mailed a copy to every member of the legislature The spurious letter stated that legislation along the lines provided for in the above bill ought to be passed In the interest of better schools Senator Linn read a letter from Prof Fuqua who is now in Tex as saying he never wrote such a let ter and never heard of it and that was a base forgery Strenuous efforts are being made to push the bill through the house but it will take clever work to pass The natural love of a Kentuckian for a racehorse was demonstrated In the senate a few days ago when the bill known as the Wllhelml antipoolroom bill was up for passage The bill was mainly intended to effectually put a A LIFE AT STAKE Your life may be at stake when vou notice any sign of kidney or bladder trouble as Brights disease and diabetes start with a slight irregularity that could be quickly cured by Foleys Kid nej Reused Commence taking it at the first sign of danger Chas C Davis 111 stop to the betting on horseraces poolrooms but it incidentally put a stop to betting on all racetracks inIKentucky The senate was willing stamp out the poolroom evil but the abolishment of betting on racetracks meant there would be no more racing In this state so the bill was amended by putting in the following section This act shall not apply to race tracks that are licensed by the state racing commission nor to trotting races that are conducted by a regularly organized association Senator Jack Chinn made a speech for the amendment and said if it was not adopted the bill would destroy the breeding Industry In Kentucky that was worth many millions of dollars Senator Burnam spoke along the same lines and said the men who trained and developed horses must have an in centive and that whenever a prize horse was developed it added to the value of all the horses in Kentucky that poolrooms were vile places where the lower grades of people congregated the year round and should be sup pressed while race meetings were at tended by the best people accompanied by their wives and daughters and was a festive holiday occasion that should not be abolished The bill passed the senate by a vote of 33 to 4 md if it passes the house as it is be lieved it will poolrooms and hand book betting on races will soon be a thing of the past The Crecelius tobacco bill has pass ed both the house and senate and is now in the hands of Governor Willson It was thought by some that because Senator Burnam who is a close friend of the governors opposed the bill so ardently in the senate that probably the governor will veto it but it is hardly probable he will do so The bill provides a fine from 50 to 250 for anyone who sells his tobacco after he has pledged It or pooled it and the same fine for anyone w ho knowingly buys pledged or pooled tobacco The friends of the bill claim it will remove the cause for the night riding and therefore will effectually stop it Sen ator Burnam said it was a dangerous thing to penalize the violation of u civil contract and he believed the bill would not serve any good purpose A companion bill to the Crecelius measure has also passed both houses It provides a fine of from 100 to 500 for anyone who sells or transfers prop erty where the possession is in one person and the title in another The famous McChord tobacco bill has passed the house and is now wait ing its turn in the senate This bill provides that any person or corpora tion engaged in the business of purchasing or manufacturing tobacco in this state shall pay a license tax equal to 10 cents on each 1000 pounds of tobacco bought or manufactured in this state the amount of the license to be determined by the commissioner of agriculture and provides a fine of from 100 to 1000 a day where such business is conducted without a cense It Is claimed that this bill will be defeated in the senate and that if it should pass it will likely be vetoed by the governor- A few days ago there was much bit ter feeling and political scheming over the seven contested seats in the house It was claimed that the sitting memo bers should be unseated at once because they had been unfairly elected Attorneys were here constantly urging that the vote be taken to decide these contests as it was a grave Injustice to keep these men out of the seats they were rightfully entitled to occupy But oh what a difference in the morning As soon as the senatorial race was over everything quieted down and on last Thursday all the contests were by agreement decided in favor of the sitting members and not a single contestant won a seat Why Be cause there was no longer any nee for an extra vote to win the race for United States senator Of the seven contests three were against Demo crats and four against Republicans so without questioning the merits or de merits of any one of the contests they just called it a tie and sent all the contestants home with their fingers in their mouths Thats politics The following bills have passed the senate during the past week Bill Increasing the per capita for the inmates of the State School of Reform from 100 to 140- Bill appropriating 65000 to pay a deficit in the operating expenses of the School of Reform and to erect neces sary new buildings and machinery Senator Nells antibootlegging bill which provides that a distiller shall sell whisky

ofvictories Cn such occasions we have not the slightest reason to believe it was wrong I feel quite sure that no inteligent and candid man willap plv this passage There is a time to mourn and a time

the Bible either in the Old or New Testament condemn dincuig We answer that neither the Oul nor New Testament conid inns dancing by name any more than gmbling the most flagrant of vices according to

not IexpehenI manifestly the solemn I tive duty of all religious people to refrain from them Here then we theIunbecoming imprudent inexpedient and contrary to the Ne w TestamentlI not dancing sanctioned by the examples ao well as preccps of god men n ended ii the Old Testament This question naturally leads us to examine Exodus 1520 And Miram the prophetess the sister of A ron took a timbrel in her hand and ail the women went out after hr with timbrels and with dances 0s this passage several facts are to be noted to show that it affords no example for us to follow and no counten nce nor encouragement to modern dancing with which muiy would confound all dmcing in every period of the worlds history First then religious dancing was practiced from the remotest times and this was a part of those religious solemnities which she was appointed to con duct among the people as joint leaders of the women with her two brothers As God said I brought theeIsreal up out of the land of Egypt and sent before thee Moses Aaron and Miram Micah 64 Ofcourse this instance of religious dancing separate and from the men Who e devotions were con ducted by Moses add Aaron Affords no example nor encouragement for mixed dancing It was the principal business of certain women to celebrate victories with singing dancing etc See ist Samuel 1867 and Judges 1134 One other example of dancing Lund in the Old Testament I must consider in this communica tion the one to which I now rerer is Jound in 2nd Samuel 614 and is that of David who danced before the Lord The circumstances connected with this act of uancing on he part of David determins its moral character to be different Altogether from modern dancing It was done before the Lord under a sense of his mighty presence and in ref rnce tj his high glory It was an act of worship usual in his day It would he absurd to regard it in any oher tiith- ut Xea foolish or madman would dare to do so David went on singing and shouting leaping and bouncing more like a man in an ecstacy of triumph than according to the fashion of a modern fiddler and dancer We tow give attent ion to the New Testament By examning the Old Testament we find as before stated that dancing was practiced in divine worship and in the celebration ofvictories Cn such occasions we have not the slightest reason to believe it was wrong I feel quite sure that no inteligent and candid man willap plv this passge There is a time to mourn and a time to dance Ecc 34 to the modern dance at least after reading the context if he were to construe it litterally and nctasa figurative expression of the opposite of mourning in which latter since he ought to construe nd apply it Toj construe it 1erany would involve an injunc t n to kill a it is written in the proceeding erseHJtime to kill Of thy tvo catcs o dlll cirg in the New Tetameir mention fiut the one connected with the return of the prodigal son This is a parable sIlly and illustrates Gods willingness to receive sinners etc The other case is found in Matt 141 12 Herods birthday was celebrated and Herodias daughter danced John the Bap tist told Herod it was not lawful for him to have his brothers wife This excited her malice against the faithful minister to gratify which she devistd a stratagim in which her daughter very promptly par ticipated Being before m istructed by her mother she leaped danced in the midst of the festive company No doubt she did her best and prettiest When the sundered head of a godly man was the prize of her material bidding It musi have been a very bad company to have been pleased enough to I desire that Hrod should pay for dancing the bloody head of a good min What a splendid and si perl presnt for a lady of refined sfc isibility and virtuous inoJehtj Wasthtreanything just or lively or pure or virtuous or praise worthy in that kind of dancer which was p nnpted by vanity ad revenge rewarded bv murder The history o this case will be a standing argument against it to the end of time An argument as durable as the pillars of Heaven An argu m nt as impressive as the voice of God sounding from the vaulted arch of the visible firmament and as clear atd loud in the ear of wisdom as the st n sing roar of seven fold thunder A positive prohibition of some genera s by name includes a direct and explicit denunciation ofall the specific sins included or implied in that general name Such an explicit and direct denunciation we have in the New Testameutagainst dancing under the general name of revelings lud riotiugs These revelings are called the work ofthe flesh Gal 5 19 They that do such things canuot inherit the kingdom of God Gal 521 Once while walking along the streets of my own town just behind three or four young men I heard one say to the othersC What do you think of that girl being a teacher iu Sunday school and taki g the Lords supper Another said Why the first responded I saw her dancing the other night Another said
