The recent ridiculous " investigation"

change that has come ever the habits of
our puuiic men since tuc wnr, writes an
old Washington correspondent. I re
member, says a writer in The Oammcr-
cial Gazette hearing Senater Merrill of
Vermont say that when he was a mem
ber of the Heuso of Representatives prier
te 1801 there was never an hour of a Ce:.-
gressienal session that soine member of
that body could net he seen under the in-
tluence of liquor. In these and earlier
days there was always a number of bibu
lous members who were mere or less
drunk all the time, and generally mere or
less quarrelsome. They required, the
constant attention of friends, and violent
scenes frequently resulted. The corres
pondents' gallery did net exist in these
days. Thore were writers for the press
who attended the sessions a part of the
time, but telegraphic reports of the inci
dents of the day were unknown, and
many things happened which uover
reached the public car.
Te day the Senater or member who
calls aloud On the tloer of the chamber
for a drink of whisky seen discovers that
his remark has reached the ars of 03,000,
000 of people. The use of liquor in former
days was net confined te the members .of
any ene imrty or from any one section of

THE AGONY IS OVER.
Masen Democrats Send an L'ninstructcil
Delegation te Catlettsburg.
MOTION TO 1NSTKU0T FOR COLE LOST.
A Nelxr ami Turbulent Cwnentleu. Harmony,
Sweet llarmuiiy, tbe ruintlie Cry.
The much tnlkcd of and anxiously
looked for convention met yesterday af
ternoon nt the Comtheusc.
2fet in several years have the Demo
crats of Masen county been 60 stirred up
as the have been ever the Appellate race.
The opposition te the candidacy of
Judge A. E. Cele, though seemingly
small at first, grew in numbers and spread
in proportions until it became a formida
Te have one's own county arrayed
against him in a contest, where county
pride gcneinlly coerces peiseual feelings
is somewhat singular even in politics.
Judge Cele's friends presented a strong
minority, and the howlers at the conven
tion were in force and geed voice, but
the majority e' the delegates were for
some ether man.
The convention was anything but a
love feast. The speeches made were full
of firery leeks and words and angry ges
tures, and yet the old Democratic chest
nuts of "free speech" ntid "haimeny"
weie worked for all there was in them.
At times the crowd was very turbulent,
the chairman almost losing control.
Time nnd again some one would arise te
speak only te be howled down
Frem the noise and confusion the fol
lowing was gleaned:
Chairman J. N. Keheu of the County
Committee called the convention te order
and took occasion te make a pathetic
plea nfer harmony. He then declared
nominations in order for Chairman.
R. M. Marshall of Sardis placed A. P.
Geeding of Mnyslick in nomination.
Jehn rI. I'erriue of Maysville nominated
ex-Senater E. L. Worthington.
It was then realized that no credentials
had beeu handed in and the roll of pre
cincts was called for tint purpose. All
responded except Murphysville. There
was a contest in Dever that caused aheap
of trouble, all en account of Jerry
Greves. Jerry is a popular fellow, but
he was net wanted in that delegation and
he did net get in. There weie chaiges
and counter charges of irregularity in
the ptccinct meeting held at Dever last
Saturday, and the trouble was finally
quieted for the time being only te break
out afresh further en.
The roll of precincts was again called
te record the vote for Chairman. The
result was 20 10-21 for Worthington and
IS 10-21 for Goedtug, but before it could
be announced T. M. Weed moved that

and of course urged harmony.

G. W. Rogers. In recognition of his
worth were made Secretaries.
Then Dever and Jerr' Gravcs"came te
the front again. T. M. Weed wanted the
niattcrsettfed by committee en Credentials
consisting of one from each precinct. J. L.
Whitakorget up but was howled down be
fore he get a cliaucc te say anything. He
tried it airain but the boys would net
have it. J. J. Perrine finally made him
self heard and seconded Mr. Weqd' me
tien. It then turned out that this was
precisely what Mr. Whitakcr wnuted te
de and all the racket and fuss was for
The motion prevailed and the roll of
precincts was again called, each one
naming their ewii member of the Creden
tials Committee which was made up as
follews: Mavsville Ne. 1, T. M. Weed;
Ne. 2, J. L. Whitakcr; Dever. J. N. Wil

isburg, James B. Key: Orangeburg, Jehn
Peters; Washington, B. D. Owens; Fern

Dietrich: Helena. 'A. H. Calvejt.
The Committee letircd te Judge
Phister's office for deliberation, and the
Intervening half hour until their re
turn was spent in vain calls for a speech
from some of the leading lights of the
local Demecmcy, none of wlieih, how
ever, had the temerity te respond.
The Committee en Credentials handed
in their report, with the names of the
delegates, but Jerry was net In It. pre
bably for the sake of haimeny. Dever
was entitled te 2 votes iu the convention
and theie were 8 delegates present. Of
these 5 were en one side aud 3 en the
ether of the only issue, tlfat of the can
didacy of Judge Cole, with the majority
opposed te the Judge.
J. J. Pcrriue then moved that a com
mittee of three be appointed by the chair
te select delegates te the Catlettsburg
A. P. Geeding moved as au amendment
that ene from each precinct, te he uamed
by that precinct, be appointed ou the Com Cem Com
mittce en Delegates. R. M. Marshall
made a spirited speech In favor of the
amendment. During his remarks he paid
the worthy Chairman a, peihaps net in
tended, very high compliment by com
paring him te ex-Speaker Themas B.
Reed of the Heuse of Representatives.
Mr. Marshall was there iu the interest
of his constituents, nud demauded that
he be heard as thelr representative Of
course he also wanted haimeny.
The question wa9 asked for by Mr.
Perrine and the call of precincts de
manded. When Dever was reached
there was another short hitch Her vote
was finally recorded U nve and J no.
The result was 10 512 aye, 22 512 no
The previeus question was then put and
carried bofero T. M. Weed had time te
ask that the roll of precincts be called.
The chair appointed Daniel Perrine,
James B. Key and Harry Burgeync. If
all committees performed thelr work
with the rapidity which that ene did,
much valuable time would be saved in
conventions. They were Just two min

J. L. Whitaker then handed his reso
