Cleveland's letter on the silver
fiuestion while it is open and candid, is
somewhat in opportune.to say thelcast
of it. No man has a firmer hold on the
mind than he, but the policy of the

coinage of silver. Mr. Cleveland's

At last Clay and Clardy have

Dr. Clardy is for it if it means one

Mr. Clay is about right. It is
really not an isue in the campaign
for the office of Governor, except in
so far as it shows a man's Democracy
and for that reason, tho press particularly
wanted to know how this

JinxiK Lkwis, of narlan county,
was shot and instantly killed by his

Lewis was the leader of tho law and
order club, and was the principal
agent in bringing Harlan county
to quiet. He and his sou met at
a barn on the home farm, a
quarrel ensued, in which the boy shot
his father five times. Judge Lewis
was the last of the three prominent
figures in the late fued, Will Jennings
being in the penitentiary and
Wills Howard awaiting trial for
murder in Missouri.
Fatality in high official circles
during President Harrison's adminis
tration has been very marked. Jim
ister Pendleton's death was first; this
was followed by tho death of young
Hlaiue and the death of Minister
Lincoln's only son. Then came the
tragic death of Secretary Tracy's
wife and daughter, the sudden deatl
of the Supreme Court. The greatest
national historian nnd the foremost
Democratic leader have passed to the
beyond. All in all, mortality in
high places has been great.
A DEMOCRATIC JONAH.
Under the above alluring caption,
the Louisville Commercial attributes
the following language to the Hi:n-ald:
"Should tho Democrats norainato
cithar Clay or Clnrdy for Governor, tho
met that the nominee had been connected
with tho convention would give
the Republicans a walk-over."
There is a mistake somewhere.
The Commercial evidently quoted
from some other paper. The
never made any such statement,
neither does it believe it to be true.
If Dr. Clardy or Mr. Clay gets the
Democratic nomination, the Herald
will support the successful one
with perfect cheerfulness and good
faith. No matter who the
may nominate for Governor,
the Republicans will have no walkover.
The Republican candidate for
Governor will make the race this
year as heretofore for the fun there
is in it and the hope of getting a
small slice of Government pie.
Ancnt Mesrs. Clay and Clardy,
the HnitALii did spy if they wanted
to stump the State in the interest of
their candidacy, they should resign
their places in the Constitutional
Convention. This proposition presents
itself to the more thoughtful
element of Kentucky citizenship a
true, just ami right. If either Clay
or Clardy gets the Democratic nomination,
he will bo the next Governor
"Tho Hartford Hi:nr,i) suggests that
tho two farmer candidates for Governor
should resign their seats in the Constitutional
Convention becauso they got
out occasionally to mix with the people.
Ohio county's, delegate goes down homo
when ho wishes and tho Hi:ni,l hasnjt
a word to say. Wo suspect that it
would also seu tho Attorney General
shut up shop, nail a board ovor tho door
with "closed" on it, go out on his
and ueer complain. Tho Hint-alp's
idea is that farmers should work,
others may play. f Farmers Homo
Tho Herald's idea is nothing of
the kind. It believes no more in
farmers working than it believes in
other people doing their duty. Wo
simply said Messrs. Clay and Clardy
had better lesigu their scats in tho
Convention if they could not conduct
their canvass and still do the work
the people elected them to do, and
wo make bold enough to reiterate
that samo fact. With Attorney
General Hardin, tho caso is entirely
different. Ho can get about over
the country mid still attend to his
business as a State officer. Ho has
not been selected by the people to
help make "an organic law," ns has
Clay and Clardy. If he had
been, we most assuredly would have
been in favor of him staying at his
post of duty, Thcro is n case, however,
that comes within the Home
Journal' criticism as well as tho
Hehald'h, and that is tho Hon. W.
J. Hendricks, who is a candidnto for
Attorney General and a member of
tho Constitutional Convention,
When tho people sent delegates to
the Convention to remodel our or-
ganio law, thoy thought they elected
men who wcro able and willing to do
this great work, mid had there been
closer attention to business and less
running around nmonc the members,
the session that is going on like Ten
nyson's brook, would have been now-near
its reasonable and legitimate
close. Wo would not keep these
gentlemen nlwnys at Frankfort, but
allow them a few visits home to sec
about their business nirairs; but when
it comes to deliberately quitting the
work of tho Convention in order to
engage in other nnd distinct work of
any kind, anil particularly so, to
mnke a canvass for another office,
then the remarks made by the Herald
become eminently proper nnd
arc considered so by the more
thoughtful people all over the State.
The delegate from Ohio county
has been home one time since his
election, hut he hns not left the work
of the Convention to stump theState
for any office.
What Defeated the Fores Bill.
Last fall we repeatedly urged that in
order to defeat tho Force bill, when
pendiug in tho Senate, every nerve
should be strained for the election of
Democratic Representatives. Wo expressed
the belief that the election of a
large Democratic majority in the next
IJouso, and that alouo, would defeat the
The event has substantially justified
the view we took, though it also proves
that wo credited the Republicans with
more regard for public seutimont
more respect for popular sovereignty
than they deserved. After such a tremendous
victory as the Democrats won
in November wo did uot suppose that
the Forco bill would bo heard from
Again.. We. did not suppose that Ir.
Hoar could get n dozen of his colleagues
to aid him in pressing that job on tho
attention of tho Senate.
In spite of this it remains true, how-over,
that thu Forco bill was beaten on
the of last November; it was beaten,
not by the election of a Democratic
majority, but by the election of an
overwhelming Democratic majority of
the members of tho next House. Senator
Gorman and his associates could
not have made the superb fight they did
make against the Force bill but for the
popular support tho late election assured
them of. It is Republican rubbish
to say that the minority can rulo in this
country. The iniuority in the Senate
won becauso it represented tho majority
of the people.
The Republican Senators, without
whoso votes the Democrats would have
failed, would not hnvo broken with their
party had not tho election in November
shown that the leaders were leading
their party to destruction. Many Western
Republican papers, nnd among
Eastern papers, notably tho
Inquirer, insisted that the voico
of tho people on November 4 was raised
against tho Force bill and that the bill
ought to be dropped. Senator
Stewart, tho head and front of
the Republican defection, said plainly
that the men who were pressing the
Forco bill had better stop and consider
the meaning of tho late election.
And so, in spite of tho utter disregard
of Hoar and Spoouer and Aldrich, and
Edmunds for the voico of tho peoplo, it
was the voico of tho people, raised on
November 4, 1890, that ultimately defeated
the Force bill.
The Third Party.
"A Muter" In tlie Farmer's Home Journnl.
The third party movemont seems to
bo taking such a firm hold upon soino
of our brethren that they nre advocating
the same both in season nnd out of
season, one of them says n third party
mubt be born must is for the king
and I for one do not seo that tho time
has armed, and if the members of tho
F. & L. Union launch themselves upon
the country at this time as a third party
the action will bo premature und
early death will surely follow. Wo
this union with tho obligation of
the union that wo would not bo interfered
within our polities. Wo were to obtain
redress from our wrongs through
one of the old parties, wo were
to place our demands bofore thorn and
the one that championed our causo was
to bo tho peoplo'a party. Hasty action
upon our part can have but ono result
and that is ignominious failure.
If wo form a third party, vs will
have to form it from the two old
ones, nre wo possessed of an insight into
u man's nature, that wo can say who
will prove true until wo huvo tried him?
Will he bo any more likely to prove
true in n third party than in tho old? I
say thero is relief in ono of the old parties,
but if after nature and pationco
huve done their perfect work, relief
does not come, then a third party will
(uot must) bo born nnd it will bo a
party that will stand through any storm.

Phil Howard Killed While Full of tho
Meanest Whisky and Bin Given
The Oweusbpro Messenger gives tho
following account of tho successful
work of water and alcohol:
Tho accidental killing of Phil Howard
and the probably fatal injury of Ben
Givons, two farmers from Ohio county,
is reported from Whitesvillo. Tho two
men went to Whitcsville Tuesday with
tobacco, nud after delivering their
crops bought a quart of alcohol aud
started home. By mixing tho alcohol
with au equal quantity of water they
provided themselves with two quarts of
the worst drink on earth, aud started
home. They were druuk when they
left the place and doubtless drank more
on tho road. Darkness overtook them
two miles out and they sotm met their
fate. The roads of that locality are
very rough, aud at a certain place there
is it cut iu tho road that is eight feet
deep. Instead of keeping iu tho road
i they drove up on tho bank, and thcro
was no way out of it except for the
wagon anil teim to fall down iu tho
road. This occurred, nud Howard fell
under one of the wheels. His head was
' crushed into tho earth and retained no
, trace of its original shape. The wagon
' also fell on Givcus, crushing him badly.
The men were not found until yesterday
morning. Howard was of course
dcud, nnd Givens was insensible nnd remained
so at the time tho latest
mntion could be had.
When the men were found tho wagon
stood upright in the placo iu which it
had fallen and the horses wcro still
hitched to it, the harness not being even
disarranged. The faithful animals
seemed to recognize that. something was
wrong nndjiod not moved during the
whole night. Ono of them Tiud "become
restless nnd had pawed out a considerable
hole iu the ground, but the other
had stood apparently still all night.
Both of the men were married and
i Howard had a large family that is left
I almost ' iu destitution. Givens wus
younger and had a wife nud ono or two
1 children. Howard formerly lived in
this county, and wasu sou of Lawson

Tho general rejoicing iu Muhlenberg

boforo the court were citizens of the
Stato of Kentucky, and their presence
iu tho caso took nuay the right of the
Tennessee bondholders to remove tho

also holds that only those bondholders
