THE INTERIOR JOURNAL
Stanford. Ky.. - Dec. 29, 1899
W. P. WALTON.
Thk season for retrospection and tho
casting up of tho accounts of tho year
I again upon us and ho alono la bless
cd, who in dob io, can recall nothing
thai ho has done thai he would havo
left undono and left undone nothing
k.t k hrmlri hare done. Out alas!
how few thero be, If any, who havo
lived such perfect lives. Wo arc all,
that is to saT tnost all, of us, miserable
sinners and there Is little or no help In
us. Meeting Emtnett Logan, ol tho
Times, for whom wo have always cher
ished a slncero affection, in Loulsvlllo
tho other day, and recalling tho fact
that wo had ectercd tho newspaper
business almostslmultancously 25 years
ago, ho remarked: "Walton, old fel
low, did you over sit down and think
how much rot we havo written in tho
last quarter of a century? How many
...-i.,.,.i nMn thlnirs of peoplo and
things, wo havo written that could so
much better to havo ocen icn, u
written?" We bad thought of It very
often with rcferenco to oursolvcs and
resolved repeatedly to raced our ways.
Hell is said to bo paved with good In
tentions, however, and men resolve and
rcresolve and dlo the fame. Wo claim
odo credit, though. Wo never write
anything of anybody-wo wouldn't say
to his faco and alwnys tight In tho open
and not behind dirty, low and mean in
sinuations, which only stamp those who
mako then, as cowards and assassins.
Furthermore wo never parade personal
grievances before our rcadors and do
not waste space to tell about It every
time wo Hod it necessary to mash a
puppv's mouth or kick a cur.
However, this Is not what we started
out to say. We simply wanted to tell
our patrons we have tried to give
them tho best in our shop thisyear and

lngs and plead error of the head and un6(.rUpUi0u8 republicans and cannot
. i ,. honrt. Our Intentions are
always good anil it is never our desire
to hurt anybody's feelings, unless that ,er cntered lho Sonato. Only throe
i,'aPtlnn shall make It necessary
So if wo have hurt one's feelings that
oughtn't to have been hurt, we cravo
his pardon and are willing to make any
proper amends. Wc have enjoyed a
most prosperous year, thanks to as loy
al a constituency as a man ever enjoy
ed, for which we are profoundly grate
ful. Promising even greater effort to
make tho Intemok Journal a model
newspaper In every respect, we drop a
tear for tho old year and wlth a smile
f jr the new begin the 26th year of our
journalistic career with a strong heart
and with a conscience void of offense,
loving our friends and not caring
enough for our enemies even to hate
The way pension claims from soldiers
of the recent war are pouring In, sug
gesta that many of them must have
gone in with tho view of having the
government support them the rest of
their lives. Already over 25,000 claims
havo been filed, or one for every 12
men enlisted. One Massachusetts reg
iment alono has filed f50 applications
and a New York regiment over 300.
Tho flood of applications Is said to be
due more to the pernicious activity of
pension attorneys than to the soldiers
themselves, but the Louisville Times
pertinently suggests that "It must bo
admitted that before application can be
made the veteran himself must be, like
Barkis, at least wlllln'."
Pito Tem. Gov. Taylok has ap
pointed A. M. J. Cochran, a republican
of Maysvlllc, and W. H Mackoy, a

and declare as before that the Klectlon

tho civilians, who want to return to
Spain, shall do so at this government's
ekmse. The president continues to
ullo up straws on
