Tnesday Morning, January 31, 1882
W. P. WALTON,
Ah might Imvo boon tuppotcri, the
Antl-frcopass hill was killed by a de
cided mnjnrity in the Kentucky Leg
islature. Tlicro is nothing that the
liltlo legislator thinks mora of (hnn
his railrond pass. It is anew thing
to him, this riding on tho cars free,
and ho shows his piece- of p.isto board
to the conductor with tho air of a
man, who feels liko ho owns tho whole
concern. Ho does not teem to realize
whenever ho pulls ono out that ho is
producing ovidenco against himself,
that ho has accepted a bribe, nltho'
every honest man must regard it in
that light.' Railroad companies nro
liko all other corporations, soulless,
and never bestow a favor except fur a
purpose, or valuahlo consideration.
They nro exceedingly charry of such
favors, and tho legislator, who imag
ine he is a matter of personal consid
eration, is both a fool and a knave. Wo
would liko to eco him try to get a pass
after his term of official acrvico is
ovci. He would Gnd out then how
much personal consideration a rail
road company has for him. No, up
right lawmaker, you may endeavor to
quiet your qualms of conscience by
pretending to think otherwise, but
when you accept n pass, for which
you can furnish no consideration but
favorable legislation, you accept a
bribe, which, petty though it bo, has
from timo whereof tho memory of
man runneth not to tho contrary, had
tho effect intended by tho railroads.
Thosolittlo passes always secure favor
nblo legislation. Thoy allow unjust
discrimination against localities. They
furnish reason why tho freight on n
car load of coal from Pino Hill to
this place, 30 miles, is more than it is
to Louisville, 130 miles. Thoy ao
count for tho fact that freight from
Cincinnati or Louisville, here, is
thrco or four times as much as it is
from New York to either of those
points. A scrupulously honest
.lawmaker will not accept ono of
these little bribes, and until wo can
elect men to tho Legislature, who
would scorn such an attempt, the poo
plo have hut small show when rail
roads coma up for consideration. It
may bo urged that editors, who are
supposed to get every thing, including
their railroad fares, without money
and .without price, are the last men
to attempt to bring about tho reform,
bo' greatly desired, but it is an erro
neous idea to eupposo that newspaper
men get free passes. The passes that
they get nro far from free. Tho ad
vertisement necessary to secure such
passe, i3 in our case nt least, worth
at our regular rates, many times more
than the use of them is over worth to
us, lor we rarely over have timo to
uso" them, besides, wo would much
prefer buying our tickets if the rail
roads would pay in money for tho
space they use. Wo make these
statements to correct a mistaken idea
and to show tbut wo do not do what
we condemn in others. To their
credit be it said, there aro a fow of
tho members of our Legislature who
returned the passes tent to them.
They deservo honorable mention, and
if we had their names wo would pub
lish them that tho world may know
there aro a few really honest men left.
Tub Kov. Leftwlch, of Tennessee,
has got himself in trouble ngain. Last
year he mado an indecent attack in
his pulpit on Miss tiulia Hunt, as
pure a lady as ever Uod tho stago,
for which ho would have been punish
ished, both by her big husband and
tho leading man of the troupo, but
for a subsequent apology. A fow

day, tho Ilev. Lcftwich took tho ac
cident as the subject of his text, and
held up tho little boy as a modern
young devil and scorpl It into his
mother for raising such a child. Thoso
who heard tho remarks say they were
almost slanderous in their naturo, and
now the mother and an older son is
looking for tho preacher with a cow
hide. Ict us hope that they will find
him. A well administered dose of
that kind of medicine, would evident

trill a great injustice in our issuo of

We have siuco learned from excellent
authority that Gov. Cautrill was not
Salyers counsel as charged, that he
did not ask that ho bo pardoned, and
that ho has mado it an invariable rule
nover to request tho pardon of any
body, feeling that it would bo a breach
of official propriety. Wo regrot that
wo did not reflect that Republican pa
pers nro always ready to defamo Dera
ocratic official, but taking tho matter
for granted, wo felt so outraged that
notwithstanding wo claim to be a good
friend of Gov. Cantrill, wo could
not suppress au expression of disgust.
