When we look over our exchanges
and see the number of bankruptcy no

conclusion that Manning is not a bad
place for trade after ali. There is a
general business depression all over the

but our town is managing to get along
in its usual conservative way.
The parties convicted before the

Goebel Assassination out of Politics.
There will be varied and divergent
I- views regarding the action of Governor
1: Wilson, of Kentucky, in extending par
. dons to former Governor W. S. Taylor,
I, former Secretary of State Charles Fin
r: ley and others, accused of participation
in the conspiracy which led to the as
sassination of Senator William Goebel,
[. afterward declared to have been elected
An unusual and peculiar feature of the
case is the granting of pardons to men
who have never been tried and convict
ed, hence who are, in the eyes of the
a law, innocent.
e Ordinarily the use of the pardoning
- power under such circumstances, even
.though legally permissable, could
scarcely be justified, for the law estab
lishes in the interest both of society
and the accused person himself, a meth
od whereby his guilt or innocence must
- be determined.
Failure to invoke that method not on
ly deprives society of its right, but
leaves a cloud uoon the life of the man
who is the recipient of such question
As a rule, therelore, every person
reasonable charged with a crime should
be required to submit to the test by
which his guilt or innocence might be,
with fairness and impartiality, judically
But the conspiracy which led to the
assassination of William Goebel was un
ique in the history of crime. It was a
political crime on either side of wvhich
there was intense partisan alignment;
in Kentucky opinion relative to this
case, there was no middle ground.
It is probably true, therefore, as Gov
ernor Wilson says, that a fair trial for
Taylor and Finley would have been im
~possible; that before a jury of Goebel
sympathizers they would have met with
scertain co'lvictions. and before one of
e anti Goebel views they would have
e found as speedy acquittal.
n Conceding that, whatever the -evi
e dence, guilt or innocence should be de
termined by leigal trial, the chances are
rthat these men could not have been con
victed with the evidence in hand. be
rfore a fair and impartial jury.
Governor Wiisoni's ceeienev did not
0 extend to those who admittedly partic
1 pated in this conspiracy or who, by con
clusive evidence, were shown te have
Sbeen parties to it.
I n the light of logic and the facts,
Stherefore, it would seem that Governor
Wilson has done Kentucky a service in
thus clearing the records of this deplor
SLeft in statu quo, though nearly a
decade has passed since Senator Goebel

On the second Sunday in May "Mott

State in the Union. The Y. M. C. A's
the organized Sunday school classe
and all young peoples' socities in tb
churches are expected t~o lead in th
provision for this laudable recognitio
of an unpaid debt of love and gratitud
EvF'ery man. old and young, is to wea
a w hite carnation or some other fiowe
in remuembrance of mother and he
kind and soving care to him. Ever
time hie looks upon the flower it is
direct his thought to mother. On tha
day or previous to its arrival ever
man who has5 a living mother is to ai
proach her and tell her of his grat;
tude anid love to her unselfish labe
foi him. If she is not available for hi
verbal message, he is to sin down an
wr ite it to her. Those who are so ut
fortunate not to have living mother
are to wear the flowers in comnmeri
tion of mother and join in with nb
nation's true sons in the token of lov
and devotion for mother.
IThat such a scheme may be carrie
out it is necessary that some organize
plan be operated: I suggest that th
young men of the different churche
of the towvn of Manning get togetbe
and arrange plans for furnishing at

I oining upon them its symbolic meal

- There are some cities in the Unic
which you might visit on the 2nd Sur

male regaled with the flowers.
S!There might be added to this a furtl
