The Ledger aims te be fair te all

T. ILvlbert's denunciation of the Legis

evidently mistook Thk Ledger for a

Referring te tlw present odoriferous
Legislature, The Hodgenville Herald
lets itself loose in this fashien:
What excuse can be offered for such
willful neglect of duty? Going te horse herse
races and ether similar things at the ex
pense of the people is net complying with
the sacred premises these fine hatred gen
tleman made te the people bofero they
were elected te office. Mark our words,
when the time of these elegant specimens

again te rob the people In such disgrace
ful 6tyle as they have done, they will tell
you that they knew it was wrong, but
"could net avoid it. A man who would

"I heard a great deal of indignnnt com

However, it only shows a phase of Mr.
Cleveland's character, with which the

"Every day," Senater Washburn
added, "proves te thinking men that
the country suffered a severe blew in
the election of Mr. Cleveland. It is
assuming the proportions of a public
calamity. We are destined te have four

dence has been lest, nnd it is net likely

fc, the Triumph of Vuukee Skill.
Bosten, May S3. With forward tor
pedo tubes buried deep In the sea and
the water pushed almost as high as her
forecastle, the U. S. armored cruiser,
New Yerk, steamed across the line
Monday, breaking the world's record
and winning for her builders the largest
premium ever pad In any country.
When twenty-one knots was predicted
tiB the speed for the new cruiser, many
hoped, but few believed, that her en
gines would ever be able te drive such
an immense mass of steel through the
water at this rote. When she crossed
the lfne Monday, however, with a speed
of 01.09 knots through the water, and
some corrections yet te be added for
tide, the enthusiasm en beard was In
tense Monday's performance off tbjs Massa
chusetts coast will be echoed from one
end of Europe te the ether, for It
places the United States in the van
among the navies of the world, and
gives us net only the most powerful
but the swiftest armored cruising ves
sel. There has been great enthusiasm
in England ever the performances of
the cruisers Blake and Blenheim, Berne
claiming that the latter had attained a
6pccd of S3 knots.
In the first place their vessels ere net
armored, but simply protected by four
inch decks ever machinery end boilers.
Even equal speed for them, therefore,
would .be nothing remerkablc against
e vessel carrying in addition te a six
inch protective deck a five-inch side
belt and two turrets, each 11 inches
thick. In the second place, neither eJ
these vessels has ever had an official
trial ever a measured course. The
Blake breka down from leaky bellen
after reaching a speed of 10.7 knots is

it is claimed, -indicated 82 1-1 Thii
