Rkv. R. G. OaVk was orator of the day
at the uuvailiiiK and dedication of tho
monument to the memory of tho private
soldiers nnd Bailor of the Confederacy at
Richmond, Wednesday, nnd said some
things tlint will make tho editors and
tun North howl In tho course
of hiMoildrPHi hewud, "I am not one of
those who. clinging to the old superstition
that tho will of heaven is revealed
in the immediate results of 'trial by combat,'
fancy that right must always be on
the sid of might, nnd speak of Appoint!
tnx a h judgment of God. Instead of
Hccepling til" defeat of the South as a di
vine verdict against her, I regard it ns
but another instunco of 'truth on the
scafrnld and urone on the throne.'
Against the South wnq arrayed the
of the North, dominated by the spirit
of Puritanism, which, with all its
hH ever ben characterized bv the
pbarieaism that worships itself and is tin
able to perceive any goodness npart from
itself; and from the time of Oliver Cromwell
to tho time of Abraham Lincoln has
never hesitated to trample upon the
rights ol others in order torflect its own
ends." This is pretty strong language
but the sentiment is endorsed by many
who sulF'TPtl by the lost cause. Among
the old Confederate who took part iu
the exercise were Gphs. Wade Hampton,
Filzhuuh Lee, Kosser and others,
and the ceremoniea were as impiessivo
ns tho parade was imposing.

Hon. W. C. Owens is growing more
personal in his speeches. At Versailles J
he referred to Col. Breckinridge as a i
dime museum freak w hose public appear I
auces are attracting crowds of tho morbidly
curious, the idle loafers and the
bread and butter brigade. "Your present
representative in Congress," said he,
"has been at home recently and made
BDeeches at Lexington, Paris and La
grange, in eacn ot run utterances ne
has made the statement that for the pet
100 years this district has been represent-e
1 by men, but he might have added
that only during the Aral DO of these bun
dred was it represented by gentlemen;
that during the last 10 years the honor
o! hlB own country was by him led to
the greatest shame in the history of the
government." Where is Desha and Col.
Stoll? how is the latter's chance to show
that he really means fight. His blufl at
old man Wilson after the trial at Washington
has never been regarded except
as a vainglorious performance of a man
who knew that his adversary would take
no notice of his attack.
There is a possibility, we learn, that
Mr. R O. Ford, president of tho Bank of
Manchester, may become a candidate fcr
State treasurer, in which event he will
make it lively for those already in the
race, for he has an extended acquaintance
among thoso who know hiH worth
and qualifications for the office. Mr.
Ford began his business career as editor
and proprietor of the Owen County Democrat,
which he ran successfully for two
years and then sold to Hen. E. Porti r
Thompson. Since then as banker at i
Owenton, London and Manchester ho has
develcped marked ability as a financier
and made much monev for himself nnd
associates. His own strength and that
of his wife's familv, the Garrard?, would
make him a most formidable candidate
should he enter tho race
Some nincompoop at Corhin sends out
the story that Col. W. O. Bradley will
make the race for Congress in this dis
trict against Gov. McUreary and the Louisville
Times gives space to it. Col.
Bradley's eagle eye, if fixed on anything
except the almighty dollar, is centered
on the governorship, which he has an
idea he can capture. He knows he has
none to wrest Congressional honors from
Gov. McCreary, and he also knowa that
defeat in such a race will not help him
In the other struggle. We do not speak
by the card, but wo can affirm that Col.
Bradley will not run for Congress-Neither
will any other man of note in
the district. If McCreary has opposition,
which we doubt, it will be by a
nonenity, seeking a little notoriety.
Wei gave the esteemed editor of tho
esteemed Times a chance to apologize for
a tirado on Mr. Cleveland, but instead of
doing so ho maintains what be first declared
that the horse is 17 feet high, and
adds that "since the tariff has been at
the front the president has done nothing
in behalf ol its reform upon the straight
Hnealajd down at Chicago, and has figured
more conspicuously as a fisherman
than as n tariff reformer." We do not
know what Mr. Cleveland has done, but
bis public expressions, notably in a recent
letter to u democratic club, have all
been for tariff reform. It looks to us like
it is the Senate and not the president,
