At an actual money cost of more
than 810,000 per year to the town of
Hartford alone we have for years
been the silent victims of "the laws
delay." The ruin resulting to every
interest of our people by this
is, of course, immeasurable
Mar we not hone that .those who
have tbo control of these high inter
ests of our people will not longer with
hold from us our own? Let the lock
and dam be put into Rough river and
let it be done now.
The cowardly brute who will
throw rocks into passing railroad
trains loaded as they always are with
people whom these missiles are
likely to hurt badly, is indeed the
common enemy of the human family.
The Legislature so regarded himwhen
they said send him to the penitentiary
for the offense. The Todd County
Time very truly says of him:
Hocking trains still continues in parts
of Kentucky. There ore few more
despicablo crimes than train rocking.
It is equally cowardly and cruel, and
when men are caught who have been
attempting such a thing, they ought to
get tho fall penalty of the law, and tho
law ought to bo of the severest.
The proposition to hold an election
on the question of the return of
saloons to Kosine lias been withdrawn
by the parties proposing to
havo the voto taken. After six
years of experience with the prohibitory
law it was found that it
would be sustained at the polls by
an overwhelming majority of Ko si lie's
citizens. Do this said to the everlasting
credit of Kosine, and it is
said here in reply to that few who in
the light of the most
to the contrary, still pretend
to say that tho prohibition law of
this county is a failure. The good
people of Kosine do not think so, as a
vote taken on the question would
havo very clearly shown. Nor do
the people of any other part of this
county think so. The man who
wants to run a saloon can find ample
territory For the pursuit of his
business in some other 'county. As
for the people of Ohio county, they
cau net on without him. They have
spoken on this subject bo often and
so emphatically that their decision
ought sometime to be understood by
would-be saloon keepers to be final.
WHERE IS OUR MONEY 1
The agitation of Rough river
navigation develops some strange
things. Not the least unreasonable
and provoking is the
cumbersome and senseless way in
which the Government undertakes
to do a small job like the one required
for our stream. Five years
ago the first appropriation of 840,000
was made by Congress for the improvement
of Rough river. Three
years later an additional appropriation
of 815,000 was secured, makiug
a total ot feiw.uuu appropriated lor
Of this fund there has been expended
in some kind of an effort to
clean out the creek the sum of 80,000,
leaving still to our credit about
When urged to proceed with the
work which is of so vital importance
to our peoplithe engineers and others
iu charge of tho work reply that there
is not money enough to do the work
aud we must wait. Of this answer
to our just demands and to the pressing to
needs of our people they have
grown utterly tired out. Especially
is this answer not satisfactory in view
of the fact that there are men right
here in Hartford who are ready aud
anxious to give any kind of a bond
that might bo required of them to
take the money mid put in a perfect
and permanent lock and dam on
For this unreasonable aud ruin
ous delay somebody is responsible,
and tho pertineut inquiry now being
indulged Iu by our people is, whose bo
hand stands between us and our own?
For the present costly and ruinous
bold up of our work there is no
reason or excuse. Our 'people aro ,
kiyal and good citizens of the same
government that has been pouring
Its bounty into the Kentucky and
other rivers through all these years
of QUr negect aud 8U .feeing. Why
should we be chosen victims of thi
everlasting wait? Perhaps the engineers
in charge of this appropriation
can answer. Nobody else can.
THE SALOON MUST 00.
The New York Chrittian Advocate
The railroad corporations of this
country are practical promoters of temperance
and total abstinence. Eight
engineers anu sixteen trainmen ui tliu
Dig Four system were notified March
1 that their services would no longer bo
required, Tho reason of tlioir discharge
was that they were recently made de
fendants in a justice s court in garnished
proceedings instituted by a
who had bills for liquor sold to
tho men. It is one of the rules of tho
company that employees shall not frequent
saloons. Men aro constantly being
laid off or discharged from all tho
leading roads for such conduct. One
of the best conductors we ever knew
was put on probation twice, fell each
time, and then was justly aud relentlessly
Aud so it is everywhere, the intelligent
business world is settiug its
face against the saloon. Iu conversation
with the Superintendent of a
great railroad some time ago he said
to the writer that he would not for
nn hour retain in the employ of his
railroad any man, however valuable
his services had been, whom
he knew to drink in a saloon. "We
take no chances with a man who
frequents a saloon," said he, "for he
is at any time likely to destroy invaluable
Jives and property." And
yet there are a few men and thanks
to the growing intelligence and moral
sense of the world their number is
growing rapidly less who pretend
to seriously contend that a saloou is
a good thing to have in a community.
If the saloon is a menace to life
and property when frequented by
railroad men, how is it a good thing
for other men? Men who have the
lives and destinies of women and
children in their keeping have as
much at stake surely as a brakeman
who turns a brake on a freight train.
The saloon must go from the haunts
of intelligence and decency. The
better senso of mankind has recorded
this judgment and its final execution
is but a matter of time.
REPUBLICANISM IN KENTUCKY.
How completely the Republican
party of Kentucky lacks self-respect!
What a disgusting dearth of
character there is within its ranks!
Always dominated by a spirit of adventure,
and ready to, turn toward
any experiment, however hazardous
to the welfare of the people or re1
pugnant to the better spirit of the
State, the Republican party of Ken
tucky has never been more than a
band of political freebooters.
Never was this more clearly
shown than in its present attitude in
this Appellate district. The truck
ling, cringing things who one short
vear ago were ilinching from the
blows below the belt dealt them
with such persistency by .Judge 1$.
ij. ij. uutiy are now tailing over
each other in their sycophantic ef
fusions in regard to the Judge's candi
dacy for Judge of the Court of Ap
peals. This display of hypocrisy
and glaring lack of self-respect has
always acted to drive proud men
from the party. Self-respecting
men will not consent to be dickered
and traded like mules on a cotton
farm. I hey will not consent to
play a policy game with every adventurer
who promises the party
half a dozen struggling votes at the
complete sacrifice of pride aud prin
ciple. This sort of enterprise is left
to the bootlicks and fawning sycophants
who make Kentucky Republicanism
repulsive and its party
methods thoroughly contemptible.
WHAT MAKES HARD TIMES.
How true this statement of the
Madisonville Huetler is, wo call the
farmers of thie county to witness:
Times will bo hard and money scarce
witu every larmer just so long as tnat
farmer has to buy corn, wheat and
bacon. These are things the farmer
should raise to sell and not live to buy,
Tbo farmer who buvs these thimri
should remember that ho is buying the
very same chings from somo other
farmer. Wheat, corn and hogs aro not
raieeu uy miners, by merchants, by
doctors or lawyers; thoy aro raised only
by farmers. Times will be hard with
any class of people who spend more
than they make. The man who makes
one thousand dollars per year aud
stands tho whole of it is not accumulating
wealth as rapidly aa tho one who
makes two hundred dollars and sends
only ono hundred and fifty of it.
What a part this situation of af
fairs plays iu much of the poverty of
this county. It was only a week
ago that iu response to an invitation
subscribe for Tin: Heiiali) a
runner of this county replied that he to
was not able. That day we observed
that ho bought a lot of meal and
bacon from tho merchants of Hartford.
This man owns a good farm
and with anything like a proper ef
fort could be selling these things in
stead of buying them. He is a
typo of a large class who suffer always
from hard times. The mail
with plenty of the necessaries for his
family and some surplus from his
farm to sell to other people will not
found sufferiug so much from
hard times. O.

TUB SITUATION IN HoFKIS'M.
During the past two months, whilo
tho country has been torn up by strikes
and while business of all kinds has boon
paralyzed thereby, yet in Hopkins
county tho mines and all other enterprises
have moved right along regardless
of tho strife and turmoil known elsewhere.
Thero are various reasons for this
settled condition of afftirs in our midst.
In tho first place tho mine owners havo
all along been paying their men liberally
for their work and their employes
havo been satisfied with tho condition
of affairs. Tho miners of Hopkins county
are many of them citizons whoso
interests aro closely identified with
the interests of the connty. Some of
them aro property owners, taxpayers,
voters and aro to tho manner born.
While these men may perhaps have felt
a sympathy for somo of their brethren
elsewhere, yet they havo felt more sympathy
for their own families than they
havo for those whom they knew not.
JUST AS it is.
One of the easiest ways to mako
go abroad to trade is to neglect advertising
at home. Merchants who
don't believe that advertising pays
should be tho last to complain if people
attracted by liberal advertisements of
merchants iu other cities go abroad to
do their trading. As a goneral thing
most of tho people who send abroad
for goods do so because- of tho bargains
offered in the city papers or because
they see thiugs advertised that they
think the local merchants do not keep.
If the local merchants would mako a
business of thoroughly advertising the
goods they handle aud their prices,
much of this trade would be kept at
homo. Nowadays people usually know
what they want without looking around
town for it and they go where thoy
know they can get what thoy want at
tho cheapest price. The merchant who
keeps them informed that he keeps
what they want and that ho will sell it
at reasonable prices has no cause to
complain of his customer sending to
cities for their goods. Staplo goods
may sell without advertising, but specialties
must bo thoroughly advertised.

Saved From a Lynching.
William Wilson.colorod, was placod in
tho county jail last night for safekeeping
He was secretly taken from tho jail at
Morgantown, Butler county, tho night
boforo by tho Jailer, J. W. Day, aud
Deputy Shoriff W. M. Neal, of Butler
county. Tho officers had every reason
believo that a mob would hang Wilson
that night. Wilson is charged with
having attempted a heinous crimo upon
tho porson of tho if
baby daughter of Dr, E. A. Cherry,
who is said to be tho most prominent
physiciau in Butler county.
Wilsou appears to bo half-witted. He
was employed by Dr. Chorry to do odd
jobs about the ollico and houso. Upon
tho discovery of tho negro's attempted
crimo, Dr, Chorry put his rovolver at
tho negro's head and pulled tho trigger
thrco times, but the cartridges failed to
explode. Wilson ran through the town
with half tho residents in pursuit. Mr.
B, Phelps, tho postmaster, finally
captured Wilson, though tho man made
desperate struggle. Tbo crowd want'
to mob him imiu and there, uui so?-.
oral of the county officers wero present, I
and their persuasions prevailed, and a
Wilson was placed iu tho Morgantowu
jail. Ho had hardly been put in prison
till the cry of "Mobhiml" was taken
up and shouted about tho town. The
greatest exoitemeut prevailed. Many
of the citizens wanted to burn Wilson
at tho stake and Dr. Cherry was almost
frantic in his eagerness to get at the
,mBD - i I
iuocrowu got so ovnieu naiuruay
. oruoon mat it was tuotigut best tore-
movo Wilson to tills city, for it was
known to tho ofllcers that the mob ,
would attack tho jail that night. Tho(
town was rapidly filling with armed
and determined men from the sur
rounding farms when Jailer Day and
Deputy Sheriff Neal decided to attompt
to evade the mob. While tho excited
lcoplo were teniorarily away from tho
frout entrauce to tho jail tbo prisoner
was passed out tho roar door of tho jail
by the two ofllcers to whero three of tho
fastest horses of the town stood in wait
ing. Tho man was badly scared, and
almost fell from his horse in his efforts
to get away from the town. It was just
?::I0 o'clock Saturday ovening when tho
ofllcers started with their prisoner.
Whips and spurs wero applied, and the
horses wero mado to run with all their
might from Morgantowu to Caneyville,
a distance of miles. Tbo
mob was eluded successfully, as the
people did not oxpect such a movo. The
train was taken at Caneyville and tho
ofllcers arrived in Louisville with their
prisoner about .9 o'clock last nlg)it ( Of
tho two Wilson was probably tho happiest
to reach the city.
Wilson was seen in the jail last night.
He would not talk further than to deny
tho charge. As was said, ho does not
seem at all intelligent.
Tho Circuit Court nt Morgantown
convenes to-day, and tbo ofllcers say
that tho grand jury's first work will be
to return an indictment against Wilson.
Tho officers say that they will not take
Wilson back to Morgantown until they
are satisfied that he will bo secure from
lynching. At present, they say, they
have 'no idea when this will be.

The Proper Kind of a Candidate.
Tho man who is a candidate for ofllco
and appeals to the prejudices of any
one class of people as against any other
ono or many classes, is a demagogue
and ought to be defeated. The man
who is elected to the position of Governor,
Senator, to Congress, for tho Legislature
or any other place, is not elected
to represent the interests of any ono
class to the exclusion of others. Wo do
not want a man to be tho farmers'
caudidato, the minor's candidate, tho
merchant's candidato, the lawyor's can
didate or tho candidato of any ono of
these particular trades, occupations or
professions. Tbo candidato whose ideas
aro not broad enough to take in all theso,
has ideas that aro too contracted to bo
of any practical use whatever. In Kentucky
all men, except loafers, aro laboring
men. Labor.is not confined alone
to the farm, the mines and the shops.
Tho merchant, the lawyer tho doctor,
tho teacher, tho minister of tho gospel by
and last, but not least, tho nowspaper
man, theso aro all laborors, and one just
as muoh as tho other. Thero should bo of
no conflict betweon any of them,
neither would thoro bo any prejudice
existing, ono against tho othor, wore it
nor for rauting demagogues who It
to rido into ofllce by appealing
to passions that ought nqvor to bo
aroused. The candidato who makes his
impassioned appeals to the prejudices
of tho people, is generally tbo ono who,
successful in boing elected, is tho
first ono to sell out to tho opposition.
What is needed as a roquisito to ofllce
holding is that ovory ono socking an

Central City, Ky., Juno 3.1. The
most heated political canass in this
county for years closed this afternoon
in the Congressional convention at
Greenville, in which McElroy received
S18 votes and Holm 373. Tho opposition
to MoEIroy pitched tho fight for this
District in this county, and things have
been red hot for a week. The forces of
Gorin and Helm combined, but wero
145 short ot enough to elect a permanent
chairman, but the chairman of the
county convention, who was a Helm
man, decided in favor of tho Helm
forces on a viva voco vote, after a long
effort to get a division and count.
Tho McElroy men then saw that thoy
would havo to fight for everything in
sight, and Judge W. II. Yost made a
motion that tellers be appointed between
McElroy and flclm, and that the
vote of the county bo given in conformation
with vote of tellers. Tellers
were appointed and the voto taken, re
sulting in a majority of 141 for
roy, which voto was reported to tho
The Helm men then read a resolution
naming a set of Helm delegates. A
great deal ot disturbance occurred ou
this effort to wrest victory from McElroy
and tho Helm chairman, S. P.
Love, finally adjourned the convention
without a vote, to moct July 14.
The McElroy men and those Helm
men remaining on tho ground nominated
and. elected J. D. Youts chairman
and H. O. Snoddy, secretary. They
adopted resolutions in conformation
with tho vote taken on tbo resolutions

Tho Baddcst misfortttue that over oc
curred here took place last Saturday at
the railroad crossing ou tho Ceralvo
road about one-fourth of a mile west ot
the depot. Passenger train No. 0 going

Tho eighth plank in tho Ohio ltepub.
lican platform, adopted by the Stato
convention at Columbus, is as follows:
"We endorso tho sentiment of tbo
national grango i. e., that all tariff
laws shall protect tho products of tho
farm as well as the produots ot tho factory."
Tho best way to protect tho produots
the farm and tho only way thoy can
protectod is to tnko tho tax off tho
plows and other implements and articles
tho furmer has to uso in bis busi
ness so that bo can produce his crops nt
