heartless or mast e editor goes forth every evening tofan the tires of strife and discord formerly kindled by him and other villians in this Commonwealth None other than a mad man or a villlan could

regrets that its space is limit ed that we cannot publish the article entire hut for tho benefit of those of our readers who do not know the inward feeling of tho President toward the working people of these United States we publish extracts which should cause the party he represents to blush with shame In the address to McKinley The Verdict gives the Presi dent no credit for aught save a selfish gulping hypocrisy and says he cares no more for working folks on this ac count than he does for sheep who graze on faroff Scottish slopes Be their pastures scant or deep breeds no concern to him His song of personal interest in the fortunes of folk who labor is all falsel All moonshine in the water Its for n second Presidency he lifts that soft melodious heartnote of warm philanthropy and love of labor Addressing McKinley The Verdict says Youll get on any horse from either side that stands to take you to your dirty interest Do you know why The Verdict IS sure of your snakish cold unlove of working folk It has some knowledge of how men fared who worked for you It was two years two months ago last month nnd you had been President as the advance agent of Prosperity fifteen months The

of which you were not only the advance agent but in part the painter as part owner of the OsborneSeeger Mine Yes in good truth the writer reflected on you sit ting then In the White House while these starved ones fed on dog reflected on you as the xmirkingly complacent hypocrite who was part founder of that feast And you tell of Posperityl a prosperity that dines on dog That picture of minor prosperity remains the same today The colors are no richer the canvas hold no more of life and light and luxury Poor folk nowhere by office act of yours are better paid or ted or housodor clothed Some glint of a days wage might be had whon the other year In New York Citywhich Is the most prosperous present spot in the land the workfolk on the street railroads threatened strike For what For 125 per day Thats a round sum for which to tread the arduous winepress from 10 to 14 hours isnt it And yet compared with labor generally these street railway brokers are esteemed well off One dollar and a quarter a day with deductions for sickness and lost time Thats a brave sum to face a future and rear a family on I Would you call yourself prosper ous on a like stipend Last year you re paired to the Virginia springs to boil the poison of tobacco from your veins You had been sraoklneSO cigars at a cost of 15 daily Between bed and bed you sucked in and blew out in smoke a value it would take the 12 days wages of a laborer to mate and match Thn Verdict finds no fault It would ap plaud yon it you burned a dlurnnl thousand dollars worth of Raleighs leaf on the argument of so much the better for the tobacco trade But what this paper would say Is that it marvels how you control yourself to call a man prosperous whose whole sweatwon Income makes no more than ono twelfth ol what you need to smoke Most of these folk of 123 a day are your moral and mental equals some of them your superiors any one of them in every attribute which goes for fair manhood and good citizenship towers over such as Hanna fleylnck his porcine force to crush and crowd and claim the swill Otherwise theyre his easy betters These men of tread mill lIvesand 125 a dayare as an- do sfor their wives comfort as ten deny ambitious of their childrens future aa you or Hanna And do you call theta prosperous on an utmost pay to equal 8 per cent of your cigar bill And these people these 125 a day people aro the envy of

Twain and At tern us Ward rolled into one could hardly havo been productive of more genuine amusement than the Hon W P Thornc of Eminence evoked in his address to the Democratic Club Saturday night Mr Thorne has the reputation of being one of the best stump speakers in Ken tucky and he certainly ably upheld his fame in his speech here He delivered straightforward truths in a manner that aroused the risibilities of his audi once and from the beginning to the end of his remarks he kept his hearers in continual uproar of laughter After being introduced by Hon J Tevis Cobb he began by saying he made no set speeches but only spoke what the spirit told him said ho was an 18 karat Democrat and never abused the Republicans in the particular but in the general alone and always avoid ed personalities He stated that there was no excuse for a man not voting this year as we have all kinds of tickets he advised the people not to mix tickets but to vote straight for Bryan and Beckham Beginning with Brad leys election Mr Thorne made an exhaustive and humorous detail of the succeeding political events Bradley said he having accomplished his nomination and election by smoothness nnd general cunning began to institute negro prominence picking out the darkest skinned Republicans in the legislaturethe Speaker of the House as black as any Ethiopian and thelChaplain a full blooded coon In connection with this epoch of State history Mr Thome related many ludicrous anecdotes illus trative of Republican Ignorance and produced a climax by exhibiting a photo of the burly Chaplain Continuing MrThorno said there were some sanctification Democrats in tho State who were too good for the balance of the party cited Billy Breckinridge as an example and held lain up to ridicule there was a time he said when our chambers were filled with statesmen but now instead the Republicans have hoisted on us a gang who spend their days in seeking disruption and looking for civil liberty in tho barrel of a Win Chester and pass their rightain revelry and debauchery- Mr Thome thenscored Fugitive Taylor said Taylor know all about the plot to kill Joebel and was its chief promoter since lie was the individual to be most benefit tcil and spoke of tile vain struggle the Republicans made against the courts Mr Bryan next came under Mr Thomes notice and he eulogized him highly said ho was the greatest man of the age and that the good Lord sent him to deliver us lie believed Bryans chances this year were much better than in 90 for there are no such odds against him now as then He paused then in his argu ment to speak of our martyred Gov Goobel and predicted for him immortal fame and that his name would live forever Taylors misappropriation next attracted the speaker and ho rid dIed It thoroughly he discussed Me Kinley and Roosevelt and held them and their policy up to ridicule ns only Mr Thorne can nUll ended with a most eloquent appeal for tho wholehearted support of the ticket Mr Thomes chief charm lay in his matchless wit and personalities his address was en livened by anecdote and fun impossible to commit to paper und the tumul tons applause with which his elrort was greeted showed plainly the place he has gained in Madisons hearts and mindsSExG v BRADLEY holds with Judge Jewell After four years in tbe Gubernatorial chair during which he was overworked in signing pardons for con demned convicts and organizing the mountain militia for his successor the late Bill Taylor he has come to the conclusion that politics is helland has decided to pass the balance of his days ss a peaceful expounder of Jilackstone to tho youth of the laud So we are now called upon to chronicle his passing and record his political obituary No more will lie call to arms or blow the bugle for his cohorts to guard the polls at election time Never again will he ye1lat em boys and then get behind a tree Truly wo are loath to loose sight Of so truly good and great a man But hes tired now and wants a rest his system cant stand any futher strain Henceforth he will rest on his past honors with Littleton and Coke for companions Vale vale William the Great we have seen few such as you and may we never see another ANDREW CARNEGIE line come back into the Republican fold so he announces Some time ago doubtless through humanitarian schemes he do dared violently against the Adminis trations Imperialistic policy and talked as though he might vote against McKInley This fact nearly paralized the Republican managers for Carnegie is usually one of the largest contribu tors to their campaign fund Hnntm issued a summons for a call meeting of his satellites a big screw was loose and pressure had to he brought some where to tight it Mr Carnegie was known to favor the Porto RIcan tariff bill so to pleaao him anti get him back on the right track Hanna and Co forced the Presidents hand and made him sign tho bill This tickled Old Andy immensely for it meant money to him and gave him an idea of lila importance among his fellow trust men Of course ho couldnt porno right out then with his change of front for it would put people on to the game so he waits until he returns from his summer vacation and states thaafter mature reflection ho lies decldd McKleley is btftbar nil and that liocant go back N tke Gi Oi P Auotbii Jew SMfl of M iv Telkt EVIL to him who evil thlnketh so ran the noble legend that made fa mous the Knights of the Order of the Garter Though the ago of chiralry is uo more its principles yet live and should animate us all Apropos of the motto wo have just quoted we learn that a certain Mr Kinsman a one horse Republican politician proclaimed from the house tops last week that he had discovered that Mr Bryan had pocketed 150000 for insisting on the insertion of the silver plank in the Democratic platform at the Kansas City convention Verily It seems Unit Republicans are unable to looK beyond their own littleness and cant raiso to tho height of the conception of a truly good and great man They are cor ruptlonista themselves and live in an atmosphere of bribery to add to this what they cant get by that method that steal outright witness Messrs Rathbone and Neely and Company The moth and the star about illus trates the relative positions of Mr Kingmam and Mr Bryan and the false revengeful innuendo of the former and all of lila ilk will only tend tostreugthon Mr Bryan anti place him more firmly in the hearts of the people RICHABD CHOKER says Democratic success is certain because ho feels it In his bones In saying this ho prob any expresses the emotions of the ma jority of our people A spirit of confi deuce prevndcs the very air and from every source news of Democratic gains and landslides make us all rejoice This tolls election is going to make a new epoch in our national hit tory A great change in our home government and foreign policy is im minent Such revolutions occur periodically in n countrys career and work out destinys will for that na Lion In plain words things have come to a head the Republicans have about reached the jumping oil place Their misrule is about to culminate Inn struggle for the absolute possession and monopoly of all Legislature power and civil authority making the people their slaves and the laws their tools It is to oppose this aggrandizement that the American people are stirred as never before The inherent right ol liberty handed down from our ancestors makes us loath to see our Republic degenerate into a monarchial pa rody and to prevent this lovers of freedom irrespective of former politi cal afliliationsare siding with Bryan and are in sympathy with his struggle for the emancipation of the common people Irom the grasp of the trust and kindred evils Everything seems for us if the signs of the times aro true prophets The Hod of Abraham Isaac and Jacol is the God of Bryan and Democracy and as He is with us we will win TilE London England Standard predicts that the opening years of the new rentury will witness an outburst in this country which will amaze the civilized world It is indeed high time for our citizens to open their eyes to the working of the trusts As stated ilt the Standard they have determined to lay their hand on the universities and to control the economic teachings so that nothing shall be uttered which Inns not the hallmark of monopolist approval Tine Standard says There is good prima facie ground for believing that the heads of the Trusts in the United States have determined to lay their hand on the universities and to control the economic teaching given there so that nothing shall be uttered which has not time hall mark of monopolist approval Being audacious beyond any recent Old World experience tile great capitalists of America subsidize pulpits they buy the press they seat their wellpaid at torneys in the United States and at length they stretch their hands over the colleges which it is easy to capture by examples of generosity Thus their design is to prevent any affective action which shall in any way weaken their authority or undermine their position Their object cannot bu mere wealth making for they already enjoy wealth beyond the dreams of avarice Apparently their intention is first to convert tho United Stares into a pow erful oligarchy and then to extend the sway of that oligarchy over other lands ItIs reserved for the free West to die miss from academic service tried and competent teachers at the bidding of rings of millionaires The divine right of kings is to bo succeeded bv the divine right of millionaires who arc to run everything including tine American Senate and the conscience and Intellect of university professors It is none of our duty to say how the American pee pit should deal with tjie portentous growth of that money power which overshadows the institutions of the Republic But we think that the rid men of America are revealing such a deadly plot against nil genuine public freedom that unless we are mistaken the opening years of the now century will witness an outburst in the West which will amaze the civilized world RELIGIOUS Rev H O Turner will preach nt Knriuuuxh

Ably Reviewed by Hon Lewis McQuown The speech of the Hon Lewis Mc Quown delivered at Brandenburg Monday to a large audience was of special value as the first complete summary that has been presented to the voters of the law and facts bearing upon the contest prosecuted at Frank fort by the Democrats last winter for the state offices As chief attorney for Mr Goebel Mr McQuown Is better qualified than anyone else to present this review of the most important chapter in Kentucky political history and he has done it thoroughly The voter who really wishes to understand the merits of that contest will profit from a careful reading of Mr Mc Quowns speech which is published in full below It refutes many misstate ments and will correct many erroneous impressions Mr McQuown said An issue of overshadowing import ance confronts us and threatens our national existence We are face to face with the problem whether the na- t tlon shall continue to exist as a republic or an empire The Republican party stands for the empire The administration has abandoned the fun damental principles upon which the struggle for independence was won by our forefathers and boldly adopted EnglandTerritorytion of the supreme law of the land Is governed as England governs her crown provinces The spirit of greed dominates the Republican administra tion in its foreign policy Lives and blood are freely given In exchange for tOurresult of greed The combinations of wealth and trade control the country and we are being ground between the upper and nether millstones The safety and welfare of the republic at home and abroad demand a change in underestimate inKentuckygreater interest which presses for immediate consideration and determina LeavIngspeak jTheThe platform of principles adopted by the Republican party of Kentucky while proFSing devotion tq civil Ub erty and the causeof holiest dec ti9 HS with desperate inconsistency ap proves the lawless act of the bloodiest band of conspirators who have ever held power In an American common wealth These acts of Infamy are de scribed as efforts for the preserva tion of liberty and socal order and allJ good citizens are Invited to unite with this party for the purpose of further ing these objects By way of preface to this astounding statement approving the action of Taylor and his coofficials It Is de clared in the Republican platform that officials elected by the people have been denied their offices and that the city of Louis ville and the counties of John son Magoffin and Martin have been denied the right to participate in the conduct of the government and to ex press their choice of officials at the pollsThese charges based upon Igno rance of fact and law or willful per version of both have afforded the Republican press and nominee for office and its campaign orators a text for unreasoning denunciation and bitter Invective Those who are ignorant of the law and the facts do not seek en lightenment and those who possess this knowledge Join in the outcry for partisan purposes In this common and indiscriminate abuse are Included the laws of the commonwealth the general assembly itself the courts the Juries the officers charged with the execution of the law including many of our most eminent and hon ored citizens and In violation of com oflifehave descended to bitter personal abuse of the victim of Republican as sassination who sleeps in the historic cemetery of Kentucky where present ly a monument will be builded to tell In deathless tones the story of his life and death The friend of the people the foe of their enemies his name and fame safely guarded In their hearts from the shaft of partisan malice He sleeps an iron sleep Slain fighting for his country Gubernatorial Contest In view however of this persistent denunciation and misrepresentation sparing neither the lying nor the dead It seems proper today my fellowciti zens for a short time to view the gub- ernatorial7 contest and its determlnag by the general asembly together IJwIlh the law and facts upon which its action was based Prior to the act of March 10 1898 the governor attorney general and secretary of state and the auditor in the absence of eltheriTVrere constitut ed a board for examining the returns of elections for governor and other state officers Sec 1512 Ky Sta tutes By the amendment of March 10 18Q8 the state board of election commissioners were invested with the duty theretofore conferred upon the governor and his associates and given the same power in precisely the same language This power whether exercised by the governor and its associates or by the election commissioners was held by a majority of the latter r in accordance With the general current of authorities to be minister ial and not Judicial when the board it r f r ji was engaged in canvassing the re turnsConsequently when the returns from the various counties of the common protestscrats to the counting of the votes of the city of Louisville the counties of Johnson Martin Magoffin Knox and other counties because of fraud in tinmldatlon and the use of tissue bal lots were overruled the board distinctly holding that the power to pass upon the questions thus presented In so far as the offices nd governor and lieutenant governor were concerned was vested in the general assembly and as to the minor state offices was invested in the commissioners them selves when organized and sitting as a contest board This was the con tention of the attorneys who repere sented the Republicans and their view was sustained by a majority of the commissioners in a lucid and able opinion In express terms the various questions presented to the commissioners were relegated to the two tri bunals which alone had the power and Jurisdiction to hear and determine them The Certificatel The canvassing board being powerless to hearand determine the grave questions presented and finding tram Taylorhadcate to that effcet was issued theonly fact which the board certified was that Taylor had received the highest number of votes given as certified to the secretary of state The additional statement that he is therefore duly and regularly elected was only the conclusion of the commissioners from the facts found After having by counsel urged upon the commissioners that it was duty to so find because of lack Jurisdiction the Republican leaders and press immediately assumed the position that Taylors certificate was conclusive and that his adversary contestsioners had certified that he was duly elected This position shows at once the inconsistency and bad faith of the Republican party The mountain assassins were nerved and fitted for their bloody work by the partisan continuallyinflamed Thustaughtleaders with the blind devotion followedtheThe title to tfce office of governor it Is provided by law may be assailed by contest as In the case of other of aces A tribunal is ways provided to examine the returns and Investigate the validity and legality of the election The face of the returns is not conclusive The result certified may have been produced by fraud or Intimidation or by votes otherwise illegal To examine upon evidence and deter mine these questions is the duty of a contest board The result shown on the face of the returns is oftentimes changed No political party is more familiar with this rule than the Republican party Itself Mode of Contest By section 00 of the constitution of Kentucky it is declared that contested elections for governor and lieuten ant governor shall be determined by both houses of the general assembly according to such regulations as maybe established by law This has been the law for a hundred years The regulation established by law provided for the drawing by lot of three members of the senate and eight members of the house of representatives to act on a board of contest In the senate the Hon John Marshall then acting as lieutenant governor received the slips of paper and announced the names of the members drawn not only In the governors Case but in his own The Democratic members of the senate made no objection to this although It was said by many persons that Marshall being interested should have called some impartial sen ator to the chair- Notwithstanding the fact that he declared st the time that the drawing was fair the Republican press and or ators have bitterly assailed the clerk of the senate and otthe house of representatives The sole fact on which this denunciation rests is that the majority of each board drawn were Democrats The political complexion of the general assembly was about six ty Democrats to about forty RepubU cans Upon a1 number of important contest committees drawn the same day in the house the Republicans had a majority and upon all the contest committees drawn collectively the Republicans had a majority Not satI- sfied with this the statement has been persistently madQ that the drawing was unfair The Result of Chance There were about eightysix Demo crats In the late constitutional conven tion and about fourteen Republicans There was a contest for the seat of the member from Washington county A contest committee was drawn by lot to consider and report upon the con test The singular fact was revealed that the committee drawn was about equally divided politically The Democratic members of the convention made no criticism or ont cry It was manifestly the result of chance The Republicans made no charge of fraud because the drawing was in their favor They made no charge of fraud where they secured a majority of other important contest committees in the general assembly complainItcommittee was unfair because a ma jority were Democrats and the laws of chance wero violated then the- I tr drawings in the constitutional conven tion and the other drawings in the gen eral assembly were likewise unfair By that rule would those who com plain Judge these drawings How of howJlitical proportions of the members in order to be fair Is it free from suspi cion when this proportion has been reached Does It become unfalrer departedfromand fairness eUlI1 The devotee of chance whose life has been given to problemshoweverthatever they win the drawing is fair aua when they lose It is unfair This as sault made upon the drawing of the contest board has no fact to sustain itThe reputation and character of the officials who conducted these draw ings publicly in the presence of the general assembly is a sufficient refu tation of the baseless charge The Law and the Evidence But it has been persistently charged that the contest board and the general assembly acted without law or evidence and that by excluding the votes of the city of Louisville and the coun Martinthenied the right of Suffrage and Taylor and his coofficials deprived of their offices or to use the form of expres aloptedthestole the offices The contest board and the members of the general assembly were acting under oath when they determined this contest Mr Yerkes Is only speaking as the partisan nominee of the politi responsIbleforand which has approved the action of the murderers A presumption of fair ness and faithful discharge of duty sustains the official action of the MrYerkesstatementpresumption that attaches to the utterance of a man who is speaking In behalf of a criminal whose conduct he approvesOne the grounds upon which the election was contested was that in a number of counties including John son Magoffin Martin and Knox the ballots used were printed on paper so printingandtinguished from the backs thereof If this be true the enUre vote cast in these counties should bo disregarded in arriving at the result The ballots were printed and cast in violation of the supreme law of the land In Section 47 of the constitution of elections atthethat all ballots shall be printed on plain white paper sufficiently thick that the printing can not be distinguished from the backs The object of the provision of the constitution was to secure the secrecy of the ballot The reason of secrecy Was to afford the timid and weak an opportunity to cast their ballots free from intimidation or molestation and to prevent the corrupt voter from bar gaining for the sale of his vote When the ballot Is printed on paper not suf ficiently thick to hide the printing and the stencil of the voter the object 01 the law fails and it is no more than a system of viva voce voting The court of appeals in Nall vs Tinsley 21 Ky Rep 116V held that an election with ballots by which the officers of the election could see for whom the vote was cast was invalid The law being plain and well set tled the question of fact Is now presented did the evidence authorize the contest board and the general assembly to find that in any of the counties objected to thin or tissue ballots were used in violation of the law Sample Tissue Ballot I have here one of the ballots which was used jn Johnson county and filed before the contest board by J M Preston county clerk of that county on the 17th day of January 1900 as shown by the endorsement thereon by W P Thorne Jr clerk of the board By reference to volume 2 page 72 of the transcript of the rec crd filed in the supreme court of the United States for use in the case of William S Taylor and John Marshall plaintiffs in error against J C W Beckham defendant in errror the evidence of Mr Preston will be found in which he states that he caused these ballots to bq prlntedat the Pau CatlettsburgKythe printing and stencil marks as well from the back as from the face of this ballotUpon page 112 of the same volume will be found the testimony of J D Kirk county court clerk of Martin county He testified that he procured all of the ballots used In his county at the election in November 1899 to bo printed at the Paupaw office He filed a sample printed on the same paper and Just like the Johnson coun ty ballots In every respect except as to names On page 61 of the same volume will be found the evidence of R Cv Minnlx county court clerk of Magoffin county lie had his ballots printed at the same office and on the same paper that Preston and Kirk did All three of these clerks were Republicans The evidence is conclusive that the printing and stencil marks could be observed from the back of these bal lots I referto the statements of some of the witnesses The Testimony- J G Arnett who resides at Meddle precinct in Magoffln county was an officer of the election at Precinct No 5 and was asked as to the quality ot the ballots Vol II

Appellate Decision But the Republican press and ora tors have charged that the voters of these counties should not be disfran chised because of the fraud or mis take of the clerks In procuring these Kentuckyalready referred to has given the an swer of the law to this contention hear It It Is suggested that such an inter andthated by reason of the fraud or mistake of some county clerk whose duty un ballotsWhilstreason of such conduct by a county clerk still that fact can not change the weaning of the constitution and statuteThese four counties are in the heart of the zone ot assassination One or these is the home of Caleb Powers and roomtyAugustJohndesperate heavily armed men at his beforethesuperIntendentbeen under indictment for the murder of Gov Goebel for nearly six months he has remained In the mountains un molested When the election commissioners of Knox county assembled to canvass the returns and certify the result of the last election an angry mob of 500 or 600 Republicans with ropes to hang the Democratic commis sioners remained in the streets waue the county board was in session and freely threatened them with death if they failed to certify according to the opinion of the mob In a county like this where violence and lawlessness is the rule and force and Intimidation control If the secrecy of the ballot Is destroyed it will result in the utter disfranchisement of hundreds of hon est but timid men A majority of rut fians have no legal or moral right to peacefullaw will not hear them when detected and they cry out against the disfran chisement of themselves A Bounden Duty The votes of these four counties by the plain letter of the constitution as construed by the court of appeals as well as for the considerations last stat ed should not have been taken into the estimate when arriving at the result It was the bounden duty of the board and of the general assembly to disregard this vote On the face of the returns the state majorItymajorities of the tissue ballot coun ties viz Knox 1385 Magoffln 326 Martin 473 and Johnson 878 These Taylorthe returns deducted from the latter number defeated Taylor and elected Goebel by 679 votes The Republican orators and press call this stealing the offices and denying to the people of these counties a voice in the election The dominant party in these counties through their unlawfulblulotssought through publicity and Intiinlda tion to disfranchise tho timid Voters of the minority and to corrupt those that could be purchased There Is no means of knowing to what extent they succeeded The familiar maxim of the law that no one can take advan partiesatthesespiracy Is apparent from the record and an Inspection of the ballots them selves The object of this conspiracy was to disfranchise and corrupt Detected In this crime against the elective franchise the perpetrators are estopped In law andIn morals to com plain The procurers of these tissue ballots disfranchised themselves and the voters of their counties This Is epartyI sooner or later learn that they must submit to and obey the law The City of Louisville But the Republican platform charges that the city of Louisville was dis franchised and deprived of the right to participate in the conduct of the state government Goebel received the highest number of legal votes and was elected without the change of a single vote in the city of Louisville Glaringly outrageous as was the conduct of the Republican officials with respect to the election there it was not necessary for the board or for the general assembly to consider the ob jections made as to this vote But in asmuch as misrepresentation and con cealment have been resorted to for the purpose of deceiving the public I propose to show that the grounds of con test relating to Jefferson county were well taken and required its vote to be disregarded in arriving at the correct resultIt declared by the constitution ot the commonwealth Section 6 that equalThisvenerable statute of Edward L where electionsmandeth upon great forfeiture that maliceto make free elections declaredis that the military shall In all cases and at all times be In strict subordination to the civil power This pro vision is derived from the Declaration of Independence wherein It was stat theking totheImportantthe citizen were disregarded and violated by the Republican executive

was 22000 8600Democraticpublican vote was 13700 the vote cast was 16550a Republican gain of 2850 over the registration There was a loss of about 25 percent of the vote of the city The record shows that the usual falling off is not more than 10per cent and this Is gen erally distributed between the parties about In proportion to their strength It Is perfectly clear that this extraordi- narY result was produced by military intimidation The spectacle was Indeed extraordinary No such event had Peacefulwherethiswould end They had read in the con stitution of the state that the govern or should not personally take com mand of the militia unless advised so to do by resolution of the general as thatthedirected to report to the mayor of a theyhadbe employed in aid of the civil power of the commonwealth for the enforce ment of the law The citizens beheld all these requirements and safeguards of the law set aside A partisan press daily her articleswithstanding the constitution person

freedom of the election and the Intimidation of tho voters In McCraryon elections ItISsaid a t Section552 thatan armedforce In aiIImostsuch armed force be in the hands of or under the control of the partisan friends of any particular candidate the probability of improper influence becomes stronger- It matters not that the armed militia did not visit the polls They were stationed very near to and ready at any moment to be called to the voting places They were under arms sub ject to the command of a partisan gov ernor and as a majority of the people believed had been called out in violation of the law and for the purpose of Interfering with the civil au thorities This was sufficient to raise the gravest fears in the breasts of peaceful people The result shows that almost onefourth of the regis tered voters were kept away from the polls Eight thousand six hundred of these were Democrats and only one thousand two hundred and six were Republicans Whether the fact that that the militia was in the hands of a Republican governor encouraged and emboldened the citizens of that party to come out and vote and in timidated those of the other party can never be known but certain it is as said by the supreme court of Ar kansas in Jones vs Glldewell that the rule obtains in elections as in other affairs that a man shall not profit by his own wrong nor by that of ethers done for him to reap the benefit The only means by which approximate justice may be reached when the illegal acts render the result doubtful is to require the party to whose benefit they inure to purge the polls of their effect or suffer the pen alty of having its majority excluded from the count of his votes The result In the city of Louisville was rendered doubtful by the unlaw ful acts of the Republican executive To purge the polls where the wrong was diffusive was impossible The law therefore inflicted the other penalty viz exclusion of the majority re ceived by the party for whose benefit the wrong was done Basis In Law and Fact Thus whether the decision of the board and the general assembly be considered with reference to tissue ballots or military intimidation it is ample basis in law and fact upon which to rest Mr Yerkes however seems sorely grieved because the board and general ssembly did not in their finding disclose exactly how they arrived at the conclusion that William Goebel was legally elected governor nd J C W Beckham was elected lieutenant governor he complains that the general assembly did not read the evidence and that there was no statement as to what votes were thrown out nor tabulation of the vote as revised In a word Mr Yer kes would like a special verdict It may confidently be stated in the first place that the board and the general assembly did that which the constitution and law required of themthey de termined the contest There is no re quirement that they shall report how the result was reached and in the second place I would make answer and say that William S Taylor at the point of the bayonet drove the gener al assembly from the legislative halls and sought by force and threats to prevent their meeting at any time or place to consider the contest except in London on February 6 by watch time It was believed and hoped by him and those acting with him that the bullet of the assassin would have accomplished its purpose Yerkes Defends Taylor What right has the party that in dorses these lawless acts of Taylor intended to hinder the consideration of the contest to question the techni cal regularity of the procedure before the board or the general assembly which it interrupted and wantonly sought to prevent What right has Mr Yerkes as the nominee of that party to do himself He spoke from a platform at Bowling Green with Holland Whitaker In proper person upon one side and the picture of Taylor upon the other By this he would conquer In this campaign His platform aproves these acts of Taylor In his speech he defends him The act of Taylor in interfering with tue deliberation of the board and the gen eral assembly is his act It is but a short distance from his Danville home to Frankfort He must have known as a lawyer that Taylor had no right to expel the legislature from its halls or to adjourn it to Lon don or interfere with its session in the city of Frankfort he must huealso known that laylor had no right to these lawless acts to postpone the hearing and determination of this con test he must have known that the friends of Mr Goebel would insist up disregardingtheand proceeding with the hearing and determination of the contest at once As a lawyer he knew tht the surest way to insure regularity In the pro cedure ws to allow the general assem bly to occupy its halls and proceed un molested with its duties His mani fest duty as a citizen and the friend of Taylor demanded his presence in Frankfort The Democrats were pow erless he was ell powerful If It was at all important to have a special find ing of fact from the general assembly he knew it then as well as he knows it Taylorhadgeneral assembly he should have so advised him If he believed that he did and advised or approved Taylors interference in law and in morals he is equallyInAn Artful Evasion But the horror and indignation which filled me breast of the people on account of the foul assassination of Gov Goebel has to some extent prevented a full discussion and con sideration of the most serious and im portant question developed by the un happy events of the past twelve months That question Mr Yerkes has artfully evaded He has grown eloquent in discussing tho results of the law and depicted In glowing colors the fearful wounds which liberty has received on account of the enactment of this law but he has refrained from expressing himself as to the assault made by Taylor as governor upon the general assembly and its attempted adjournment from Frankfort to London The Republican platform indorses Taylors action as governor Mr Yer kes stands upon that platform He de fends Taylor in his speeches as both honest and patriotic but yet nev er a word upon the important ques tion of the power of the executive to drive the general assembly from Its chambers in the capitol Dir Yerkes cannot dodge this ques tion The peojle of Kentucky will not allow him to do so They will demand to know and have a right to an ans wer whether In the first place he ap proves the act of Taylor Itself and whether in the second place in his opinion the executive of the common wealth has this extraordinary power The Important question which the people of Kentucky demand that Mr Yerkes shall answer is this Can the executive disperse the legislature at the point of the bayonet white in the orderly discharge of its duties and ad journ it to whatsoever point may suit his own corrupt purposes If this extraordinary power exists over the legislative department then it can only assemble at any time or place and remain in session only so long as the executive may desire it to do so Its independence is destroyed By the constitution the general as sembly is Invested with the supreme legislative power of the commonwealth As a sovereign body it may meet and adjourn when and where It will subject alone to the limitations of the constitution This instrument which divides the power of the gov ernment into three departments con fers no authority upon the executive to prorogue the general assembly The makers of our organic law in provid ing for the independence of the legis lature had in mind no doubt the fact that the English kings exercised this despotic power over the parliament and that the colonial governors ex ercised like powers over the legislative bodies of the colonies In stating our grievances In the Declaration of In dependence it was charged that the king has dissolved representative houses repeatedly for opposing with manly firmness his invasion of the rights of the people that he has called together legislative bodies at places unusual uncomfortable and dis tant from the depository of their public records for the sole purpose of fa tiguing them into compliance with his measures Taylors Despotism The despotic acts of the king and the colonial governors in reference to the legislature which led to our sepa ration from the mother country are harmless and insignificant beside the revolutionary actions of Taylor The royal power was only used to dissolve or adjourn the legislatures Taylor assaulted the general assembly and drove it from the capitol at the point of the bayonet he drove it from the public buildings of the city and finally sent Ills military officers to the Capi tal hotel and informed the proprietor that If the general assembly was per mitted to meet there he would take possession of the building itself The tramp of his soldiers was heard in the hall near the door of the room where his victim lay These acts are aPproved by the Re publican platform The perpetrator of them is eulogized by Mr Yerkes as honest and patriotic He appeals to the people to elect him governor be cause he says an unjust Iw was enact ed by the legislature In 1898 which in terferes with civil liberty and he desires to right this wrong If he really believes that Taylor was honest and patriotic he is not qualified for gov ernor If he says so to catch thevotes of the mountain assassins he is only a demagogue and unworthy the sup port of good citizens Veryfoundationlor could lawfully disperse the legislature then John W Yerkes could do so if elected governor If one execu tive may do this then all may do it and the Independence of this depart destroyedItkes declare himself upon this vital question which so deeply concerns tne people of the commonwealth If he shall defend the action of Taylor at the time and under the circumstances will ne ten the people of the common wealth whence the executive derived the extraordinary power claimed Will he give to the people his construction and exposition of the law upon this subject What Will He Do Finally the pople of the common wealth would like for Mr Yerkes to tell them whether if elected governor and requested in accordance with the law to issue his requisition for W y Taylor and Charles Finley as fugitives from justice he would do so Will he in good faith seek to have them re turned to Kentucky to answer the indictments against them If he will not answer and say whether he will pardon these fugitives from Justice will he tell the people whether he will grant a requisition upon the governor of Indiana and endeavor to have them returned to Kentucky for trial He has declined to answer whether he will pardon upon the ground that facts might arise and circumstances be discovered which would Influence him and therefore it is improper for him to commit himself But this can not be the case in reference to the requisitions The indictment has been fugitivesfromquires the executive of thq state frpm whence they fled to make demand up on the governor of the asylum state Will Mr Yerkes do this if elected The Republican party by the decla ration of its platform and its nominee is committed to the policy of Taylor which is a policy of force and arms The Democratic party stands for gov prevailInsible the campaign orators and Re publican press insist that the solo sue is civil liberty and honest elec tons Ths is an attempt to mislead and obtain a vote of confidence from the people of Kentucky under false pretenses The Republican party nev er stood for either of these principles Republican History What are the antecedents of this party upon these subjects in the nation rIt plundered the treasury of every Southern state it disfranchised the intelligent white man and conferred the elective franchise upon the brutal and ignorant freedman Elections were a farce Offices were filled by the cor rupt and Ignorant and the citizen deprived of his elective franchise held life liberty and property at the will of the political buccaneers whom tie Re publican party installed and kept in powerIn when Mr jilden was elect ed to the presidency It deliberately stole this high office The states of Louisiana Florida and South Caroli na were robbed of their electoral votes The most infamous returning boards were organized in these states under the laws of the carpetbagger and the steal thereby accomplished Great as was this wrong no one was assassinated Year after the year the people of the South elected Democrat- Ic members of congress but a contest inaugurated by a characterless carpet bagger or freedman was all that was necessary to accomplish the dlsfran c fment of that nhappy people This precedent his been closely fol lowed to the present time In the tart bee corigrwses Republican major tv has unseated the Democratic mem bers elected In the Second Virginia and Fourth Alabama districts al though the majority ranged from three to five thousand The Force Bill Only a few years ago the Republi can party In Congress made a party measure of the infamous Lodge force bill and William McKinley then a member of the house of representa tives with all of his party associates voted for it It failed by a single vote in the senate In view of the fact that the Republican orators and press have so much to say about election laws and insist that the present law is a Violation of the principles of local selfgovernment It Is well to consider this bill which the New York Sun and other leading Republican papers of the North and East are insisting should become a law at the next ses sion of congress By this law the federal judge is au thorized to appoint three supervisors of elections for each state in which the law is in force these state supervisors in turn appoint three county su pervisors and they appoint supervis ors for each polling place The feder al authorities appoint as many deputy marshals to attend the polls as the su pervisors think necessary It the state officers fail to open the pells at the proper time the federal supervisors are authorized to do so they have the right to challenge voters and require them to Le sworn The county supervisors certify the result to state supervisors and the latter certi fy as to the election of members of congress and presidential electors If there is a conflict between the certifi cate of the federal supervisors and the state officials the certificate of the former controls It will be observed that the source of power under this law is the federal judge and that the people have no vote in selecting any of these officials Twenty sections of this law are set apart to creating of fenses against it The federal court trytheseleast one hundred Nearly all of these offenses are declared to be felonies punishable by confinement in the penitentiaryNo of Condemnation You have never read a line in a Re publican platform state or national which has condemned any of these act or measures of this party John We V rles stands today as be stood at all times In full accord with his party on these measures and policies The violation of the principles of local self government by the Lodge bill receive his approval It is possible that the party Which through the most corrupt Instrumen talities deprived three sovereign states of their electoral votes Is now crying out for honest elections Can It be that a party which has at all times In its history when it had a ma jority In the house of representatives unseated Democrats whenever It fle slred to increase Its majority Is now Inveighing against tke decision or an election contest Can It be that a party which despoil nighdestroyedpolitical liberty there Is now the hon est advocate of civil liberty in Ken tucky Can It be that the party which advocated the infamous force bill which violates every principal of local self government state and county Is now honestly and In good faith opposed to the Goebel law because it takes powertowhen was the change wrought Would It not be well for Mr Yerkes to con fess the sins of his party before he appears as the champion of civil liberty and honest elections As It has been to the nation so has it been with this party In the state It enjoys the unenviable distinction of being the cnly party which has used the military for intimidation at the polls the only party which has used tissue ballots the only party which has used the military to Intimidate the general assembly and the only party which has resorted to assassination to remove a political adversary A Disgraceful Period The platform declares that we con gratulate the Republican party on the efforts of Gov Taylor and his coot dials to secure the rights of the pee ple thohistorythese efforts of Taylor and his coof ficials were made rhe state board of election commis sioners assembled at the time appoint ed y law to canvass the votes cast at the last election At least 200 armed assassins were brought to the city of Frankfort to Intimidate these com missioners They filled the capital and day after day crowded the very antechamber of the then Republican governor of the commonwealth This effort in behalf of civil liberty pas andhisWhile the contest was being heard broughtto thousand desperate rattans for the purpose of intimidating the contest board and reducing by assassination the Democratic majority in the gener al assembly They were a menace not only to peace and good order but to life itself When arrested for open and confessed violations of the law Taylor pardoned them as fast as he could learn of it and turned them loose upon the community again with a warrant to defy the law This is an other one of the efforts of Taylor In- dorsed by his party platform The AsassinatlorC Another effort of Taylor and his coofficials was the assassination The world knows from the evidence that he had guilty knowledge of the Intended crime Caleb Powers furn ished the office and details for con summating the crime Taylor stood In thirty feet of where the assassin knelt when he fired the fatal shot Dressed in the brief authority of gov ernor he used its power to the ut most to prevent the apprehension or discovery of the assassin by the civil authority He surrounded himself with the militia of the commonwealth and inaugurated a reign of terror Fearful lest his brave adversary might live long enough for the con test board and the general assembly to determine the contest he prepared a proclamation in which he attempt ed to adjourn the general assembly to meet February 6 in London There Is no language strong enough to express the horror with which many aoncst citizens viewed this flagrant violation respectabilityaware except upon one occasion has ever sustained this infamous effort of TaylorNot with having driven the general assembly from its historic centurythe commonwealth Taylor by force and arms drove the members from the public buildings In the city and threatened if the general assembly should meet therein to occupy with the military the hotel wherein his vic TaylorOn the sixth day of April Taylor said in his published card I am not a criminal neither shall I ever be

There he remained secret ed until the electric spark flashed the WashingtonA Taylor and were driven rapidly to th Jeffer Eonville ferry and thence crossed to the state of Indiana That night he reached Indianapolis and said- I am tired worn out and need rest I dont know when I will get it but since Gov Mounts action in F4nleyB case I believe Indiana will do for the presentNo bt he still sighs for rest The assassins rifle will ever ring in his ears while in his midnight dreams and noonday visions he sees the form of his murdered victim asit sinks to the earth Taylors Abject Flight This abject flight of Taylor from Kentucky to Indiana was his last supreme effort in behalf of liberty He was so deeply in love with liberty He was so deeply in love ith liberty that he was determined to live iteven It he had to go to Indiana for it All of these efforts of Taylor and bythekes stands upon and approves tnis platform He must bear the odium and infamy of it all If elected gov ernor he proposes

the mixed assemblage which heard Mr Yerkes In the afternoon The court room In which Col Young spoke was filled with people and the doors were choked wltk voters Cot Young was escorted to the plat form amid wild cheers and applause He was Introduced by Judge Mann and spoke for an hour and ten min utesHe said in part In his speech at Covington Mr Yerkes said There seem to be some doubt some jealousy perhaps as to who are Mr Beckhams legal guardians I see in Col Bennett H Youngs speech that when Mr Beck ham was seated Mr Blackburn Mr Young and one or two others were ap pointed to advise with him and to control his future actions and now I see that exGov McCreary and Charlie Wheeler are constituted his political may be there Is some question as to are Mr Beckhams advisers I enjoyed the friendship of Gov Beck hams father and his grandfather I claim only to be his friend He can give me nothing I would have but one thing I am dead sure of and that is that no one of the gentlemen Mr Yerkes has named as Mr Beckhams advisers would ever suggest to him to approve assassination to Issue par dons to the murderers of a state offi cer shot down in cold blood from a window in the executive building or to be base enough to hide such a mur derer from the officers of the law or to put bayonets in the hands of assas sins to keep these officers of the law from searching the public buildings to find the murderer or to use the public funds to unlawfullyI of desperadoes in the state Intimidate state officials or to adjourn the legislature to some place like London where those opposing him could be expeditiously killed or to furnish known assassins In advance of trial with pardons or to provide murderers with United States and Kentucky uniforms for disguise and soldiers in the pay of the state to es cort them to a place where they might defy the law- Yerkes Needs a Guardian When Mr Yerkes thirst for office brings him to the political depth where he can excuse or Justify such infamy or make him so timid and cowardly as to refuse to stand up in a manly and courageous way to con demn it then a fairminded public will say that Yerkes wants some guar dians and that he had better at once get somebody to nurse him There never was in the history of this great state or hr the annals of its brave people a more pitiable sight than a man of Mr Yerkes professions cryIngwanting In true political courage as nut to say whether he does or does TaylorOne of two things Is true If ho condemns it and keeps silence he is false to his convictions and not hon est with the people whose suffrage he seeks if he does not condemn or ap proves what Madman and Murderer Taylor did then he Is unworthy of the support of the brave patriotic and lawabiding people of this great com monwealthA Humiliating Event The Idea that a man who offers him self as the representative of his party for the office of governor of Kentucky who In this hour when the state Is in a great crisis when a fellow citizen has been assassinated on the very steps of the capitol building going to discharge his duty as a law maker shall be afraid to say whether he approves or disapproves of the conduct of those assassins Is one of the most humiliating events on the pages of Kentuckys history Covingtonbel was a crime of blackest hue but ft was a conspiracy of one two or a doz en Individuals Why should the Re

Yerkes and Assassination l jMr Yerkes Is a lawyerbe Is a law professor he teaches young men the principle of law and the true doctrines of life and yet he says that this fraction of human and divine law is only the act of a few Individuals Yet he wrote theclause in the Republican platform which endorsed and approved them and which says these mon strous acts are resolute and pati otic and in defense of the rights of the people If they are the acts of a few Indi viduals why did the Republican par ty deem It necessary and proper to in dorse them Republican campaign money hired the villian who fired the shot that put William Goebel to death a Republican officer kept the arms of these assassins checked the guns they brought to Frankfort a Rer publican governor pardoned them in advance of trial and the Republican party indorsed the man as patriotic who permitted these outrages and yet a man of Mrs Yerkes sense and In tellect says the Republican party must not be held responsible for these crimes against life and liberty when Mr Yerkes it is reported himself wrote the section which commends the assassination as the work of resolute patriots and defenders of the peoples rights Mr Bradley when he was nomlnat ing Mr Yerkes for the place as Re publican candidate for governor saldiIit was ten times as bad to say Taylor would run away from Kentucky and not stand a trial for Goebels murder as to shoot Goebel down In the capital grounds when on his way to discharge his duty as a state senator and now Mr Yerkes speaks slighting ly of this fearful act dismisses it with a sentence and actually goes on to speak as if this cruel assassination was hardly worse than holding an of fice to which one was not elected If Mr Yerkes keeps on talking in i this flippant way about the murder of Mr Goebel people will come to the conclusion that he is not as good as we have believed him to be and that long association with and advising his fellowRepublicans Bradley Taylor Finley and Powers has made him look upon the most desperate crimes with mitigating eyes and that after all the crime of murder denounced by human and divine law is not the worst offense a man can commit Yerkes first
