James ,P.' Ilarbesen, Democratic can
didate for Judge of the Nineteenth
Judicial District, is semewhat of a "cor "cer
. notation lawyer" himself, for he was at
' terney for the railroad which runs from
Jehnsen Junction te Hillsboro, passing
The only reason that he Isn't mere of
a " corporation lowyer" Is that there are
no ether corporations in his neighbor
hood te employ him.
But he Is something mero than a
" corporation lawyer."
He Is a " salary grabbed"
When he was elected Judge of the
Fleming County Court the salary of the
office was $500 a year.
Mr. Uarbesen made the race with a
full knowledge of that fact.
He entered into a contract with the
people of his county that he would serve
them as Judge for $500 a year.
", And yet, nfter he was secure In his
He actually sued the county for $250
The Jury befere which the case was
tried awarded him the sum of $5 and
he nccepted it thus virtually acknowl
edging the injustice of his- larger claim.
Further than this, Mr. Ilarbesen has
proven, himself an autocrat.
Whlle he was County Judge of Flem
ing he made a levy of $3 pelltax en
every man in the county.
And this was done in spite of the fact
that the Constitution of the state limits
the pelltax te $1 50 a head.
When Mr. Harbeson's attention was
called te the matter he stubbornly re
fused te recede from his position, de
claring- that thp Constitution was net (
And it was net nntll the Governer and
Attorney General were consulted that the
, people of Fleming county were freed from
the possibility of paying an unconstitu

We have always considered the effice
of Circuit Judge of sufficient iinportance
te inspire all fair-minded and order-
" loving men with a desire te held the
place, and, as far as. Is consistent, the
occupant also, abeve even the suspicion
that political influonces could pollute
. that ormine which should everywhere be
. regarded as the palladium of justlce be-
i - tween man and man.
With this view we have even refrained
In the contest new before us from com-
menting upon the official acts of Judge
James P. Ilarbesen, although it is uni
versally conceded that such acts, for
manifest reasons of public policy, are at
'i all times open te fair criticism and pnb-
- He 'consideration.
Hence thus far we have net said one
word concerning the fact that he, as the
Presiding Judge of the Flouting County
Court of Claims, at a session held slnce
the adoption of the new Constitution for
this state, which expressly prohibits the
levying of a pelltax exceedlng $1 50 te
. the Individual, net only favered a levy
of $3, but persistently refused te recon-
- vene the Magistrates te annul the Ille
gal assessment until after he- had goue
te Frankfort te consult the Govorner
nnd Atterney Goneral.
Nevertheless some of his adherents In
this race point te him as a profound ex
ponent of the law and a f riend of the
common people. ,
. Neither have we alluded te the break
ing of geed faith by him with his con
stituents In Ms olectlon te the effice of

, capacity for $500 per aunum, and Im
mediately after getting the place sued
the ccanty for $750, succeeding at the
' end of an expive lltlgatta la see-
ring an increase of $25 evor the $500
already allowed him according te agree
ment. And yet he sympathizes with the peer
taxpayer, se they tell you.
As properly and significantly reflect
ing upon his judicial equipeise and
peculiar fitness for such an exalted
trust, we have net recoiled te the many
friends and acquaintances of the la
mented Judge Andrews that Judge Ilar Ilar
beeon, whlle clothed with temporary
authority as Special Judge of the Flem
ing Circuit Court, saw proper te in
flict upon that venerable gentleman a
fine for a supposed contempt of court,
which act of authority was carried un un
ferglven te the grave by the ene who
sustained It nnd nlways claimed it te
have been uncalled for and unjust.
These things are plain, unvarnished
truths that address themselves in un
mistakable terms te the sober centem
platien of every thoughtful citizen of
this Judicial District.

Dr. Stevens" I have but a single case

Frem the intelligent source from which
the above information has been obtained,
there certainly seems te be no reason for
The ene fact is apparent, no epidemic
of diphtheria has ever visited our city.
The reports gene out are unwarranted
when compared with the facts and evi
dence obtained'abeve. It was an unfor unfer unfor
tunate coincidence that in almost half of
the fatal cases the deaths occurred within
a few hours of each ether.
. However appalling that ene day may
appear, the mortality, se far as diph
theria Is concerned, is no greater for 1802
than it was for 1891.
In the published report of the deaths
occurring in the city of Cincinnati or of
Louisville scarcely a day gees by but
that diphtheria is named en the list of
casualties. It is read with composure
and with no great alarm.
The city of Maysvllle is in n geed
sanitary condition. Every physician
knows his duty in the premises and the
public can rest assured that an epidemic
of diphtheria will net occur.
The City Beard with the County Beard
of Health investigated the subject and
find no reason for closing schools,
interrupting any daily business or pursuit
in tbe city of Maysvllle.
