Taylors Louisville Orran Prints
LouI'VlHe. Ky.. March 23 The hereto
fore veiled warfare of a oterie of Ken
tucky Republicans which proposes to sink
or swim with the case of Governor Taylor
has become more open. The leading Re
publican organ, the IiuIsviIIe Commercial,
to-day, in a double column eilltori.il leader,
comes out in open d'tlnnce of the adminis
tration. The position is more remarkable
from the fact that the Commercial Is
owned by the officeholder", as at the head
of the editorial page appear the follow in?
I'nited States Senator Deloe. Governor
W. S. Taylor. Congressman Vinrent Bore
inc. United States Marshil A. D. James.
Internal Revenue Collector and National
Commlttfman John W. Yerkes. State
Senator It. M Jollv and Judge E. C. Orcar.
Directly under th'se names, and over the
caption "State Rights in M Kinlej's
Cablni t" appears the follow ins
"From Washington cniis a statement
that Attorney Gtntral Grigs- has com
milKd him-elf to a. detinue statemtnt as
to tho relationship of the Federal Govern
ment to the existing situation in Kentucky,
and that In this connection he haB used the
" "There Is absolutely not a pretext for
any Interference by the Govermutnt with
affairs In Ktntucky. Kentmky H a sov
ereign Slate and her Mate laws uro su
preme uj.on matters wipiln her domain.'
"Mr. Griggs ma) not have m-eu this lan
guage, but tne utterance quot-d is sustained
by the courso of the administration, and It
may be worth while to note. In passing,
that this is about at sjuare an nunciatlon
of Stau rights as ever was mad trom i
Democratic Cabinet olhcer or a nicmler of
Congress at any stMgo in the history of the
Govcimmnt. ! is a doctrine that If adopt
ed by the Republican party will destroj it
in a single vear It Is a do-trlne. that If ful
ly established in the United States would
Goebeiize tLe country before the next pres
idential election and mako tho election of
another Republican President utterly impos
sible. "It b rather startling to hear such a
declaration from a R publican Attorney
General, jet the Secretary of War in the
same Cabinet, a lawver of high repute, has
overlooked secession and Indorsed the same
doctnno mo.-t emphatirallv. a has" an
nounced positively that the fact that cer
tain numbers of the Kentucky militia have
seceded and taken with thi-m into hostile
camp arms and munitions- of war belonging
to the United States is no concern of the
"Whither are we drifting?"
This editorial Is a direct result of the fail
ure of the last enilssarirsi to vt ashlngton to
get any form of recognition. When Messrs.
Sapp and Harnett tried and failed, the Com
mercial hnd a severe and threatening edi
torial predicting the sending of a delega
tion to Philadelphia hostile to McKlniey.
This threat was followed by the visit of "a
second delegation to Washington, which, as
stated, has been refused any assistance.
