If this is not an open declaration
for the suppression of free speech in
freo America we would like to seo
some one analyze it to mean some
other recommendation on the part
of the "star-eyed godess." Who, of
of his countrymen, could have been
induced to believe five years since,
that Henry Watterson, the man who
has been brought into prominence
for advocating measures that secured
for liim at tho time, the distinction
for being a demagogue, would now
advise all the Ainericnn people to
stop and think and devise some
measure to suppress free speech.
3Ir. Watterson speaks of environments
in his interview. We fear that
his association with Monarchy in a
country where freedom is unknown,
where men acknowledge a master
and freedom of thought and speech
is never indulged in, he has become
contaminated with the spirit of oppression
and suppression. Environment
has worked a change, and he
is not the Watterson he used to be.
Since this change has come over
him we have no further use for him
here. The United States of America
will be blessed should he never set
foot on her soil again. Anarchism Is
bad, but he who would destroy a
free press, freo thought and free
speech, is far more dangerous to our
In the issue of the Kentucky
Rogister of date Nov. 20, an article
headed "A Protest" and s'gwd
"Fair Play" appears to object to
what he terms an erronrou statement
in one of the city prnrrs.
We conclude that it refers to ai.
article in this paper on the 18th inst.
If it be that notice, of the Republican
Jolification that it refers to; "Fair
Play,' makes erroneous statements
himself. AW did not say that "C. U.
ought not to have taken part in the
Jollification, as it was a Democratic
Institution. "AVc stated that prior to
this year we had always looked upon
this as a Democratic Institution. We
now think.that the entire community
and the people of the state generally
so considered it Not that Democracy
was one of its brandies taught,
but as contra-distinguished from
Centre College which is generally
understood to be controlled and
managed by Republicans. It is
true as stated by "Fair Play" that
in the Bryan celebration at the
barbecue before the election the C. U.
boys had a seperate wagon in the
parade with tho emblem "C. U, is
for free silver" and no one was surprised
from the fact they were
where any one would have expected
them to be. But when the occasion
arrived for rejoicing over the downfall
of Democracy and the success of
Republicanism, to seo the cannons
drawn out and the arsenal opened
and the small arms brought forth
for the gratification of Republicans
and for the futher hu
miliation of a vanquished Damoc-racy,

large guns, and with rapid, constant
fire and fire all together, with the

Said, and this fact wo can substantiate
if neccessary. We took it for
granted that C. U. had some control
over the arms committed to it
by the Government and that the
arms would not have been carried
away from the premises without tho
apnroval of the Institution. We are
informed that Capt. Wygant had
nothing whatever to do with the
parade or firing of the guns, from
the fact he had resigned his work
here and had already been assigned
to duty elsewhere. We are for C. U.
and wish it success, and have written
the foregoing simply in justification
of our error in our last issue, and we
promise never again to intimate that
it is a Democratic Institution, unless
there should again be such talk
about it as was, when it was first
The Republican party declared in
its St. X.ouis platform that our exist-,
ing gold standard must be maintained.
Not as many as fifty persons
in Madison county ever heard of a
gold standard or had the remotest
idea that we had a gold standard.
However, tho declaration was accepted
as a fact and 3,100 persons in
Madison county voted to maintain it.
We have often said that if we had
a gold standard we did not know it,
and that wo could have lost it and
never have missed it. Tho election
is over and a large majority has
voted to maintain tho gold standard.
Gover Cleveland has done and said
more to convince tho people generally
that we have a gold standard
than any other man.
In Mr. Cleveland's letter to the
Now York Chamber of Commerce
recently lie admits that there is no
affirmative legislation creating a
gold standard, and that there must
be some nllinnative legislation if

and maintenance of the gold standard

HON. W. B. SMITH ENDORSED FOR GOVERNOR.
The Jackson Hustler, one of the
best papers published In Eastern
Kentucky, now under the supervision
of our former townsman, Mr. T.
M. Morrow, pays a flowery tribute to
one of Madison's favorite sons, Hon.
W. B. Smith, in which he is indorsed
for Governor of Kentucky. The
"Hon. W. B. Smith. ofQRichmond,
was in Jackson this week on business,
and favored us with a pleasant
visit Wednesday. Mr. Smith is well
remembered by our people; his was
the voice that first proclaimed the
principles of pure Democracy in our
town at the beginning of the great
campaign which has just closed,
arousing our people to a sense of
their duty and resulting in a majority
in Breathitt county for Democracy
of which we may well feel proud.
"Since the time Mr. Smith deliv
ered his address here, his voice has
been heard in almost every portion
of the State, and it is no disparagement
to others who have fought the
good fight to say that he has done
more for Democracy and free silver
than any one man that can be named.
The fiery eloquence of the arch-
traitor, the silver-tongued Brecken-ridge,
and the lava like words of the
tenegade Cochran hsve paled into
insignificance and fallen fiat upon
the minds of those who heard the
calm and dispassionate words of trutli
which fell, like pearls "of purest ray
serene," from the lips of the grand
old man from Madison.
"Of all our knights he was the flow
cr." The hosts of corruption and
oligarchism went down before his
shining steel, phnlanx, after phlanx,
iikc ripened grain teiore tne reapers
scytne. His JJemocracy is as pure
and undefiled as tho beautiful snow
which rests on the eternal peaks of
the Himalayas, far beyond the reach
of mortal man. Of unimpeachable
family and illustrious descent, a pro
found student and a courtly gentle
men of the old school, he is a man of
whom his party anil his friends may
well feel proud. He has served Demo
cracy in positions of honor and trust,
and proven that he is capable of
any offlice, no matter how exalted,
with dignity and honor to himself,
and credit and renown to the
people who advance him.
The Husler desires to say here and
now that W. B.Smith is our choice to
lead the Democratic hosts to battle in
the next Gubernatorial contest,
whether it be next year or in 1899.
No man in our grand old Commonwealth
is more admirably equipped
for tiie office of Governor. He is a
man of indomnitnble will and great
administrative and executive ability,
and when next Democracy's banner
is unfurled to the breezes of heaven,
wo hope to see emblazoned on its
shinning folds the magic name that
leads to victory W. B. Smith of
Madison county. With hfm for our
leader, victory assured.
The mountain Democrats would rally
to his support to a man and roll up
a majority for him such as has never
been before given to any candidate.
Mr. Smith's personal popularity is
shown by the magnificent race he
made for elector for the State-at-large,
when he ran several thousand
votes ahead of his ticket, and tills,
too, In the face of all the forces of
bribery, corruption, fraud nnd coercion
which were marshalled against
The Hustler will have moro to say
on the subject in the future issues.

Siramarily Punished for
CARLISLE REMOVED FLEMING-
One of the Silver Democrat Discharged
From the Trrasnry Department
Protests Against the Action
of the Secretary.
Judge W. B. Flsming, the Kentucky
Democrat, who, having been granted
leave of absence from his position in the
Treasury Department, made speeches
during the campaign for Bryan and Sew-all,
and was summarily removed the day
after the election, has written the following
letter to Secretary Carlisle:
Washington, D. C , Nov. 7.
"Hon. John G. Cai-lisle, Secretary of
the Treasury, City:
"Sir: Our government guarantees to all
its citizens the privilege of free speech,
so that ever' American has the natural
right to express in a proper way his political
opinions. In accepting office the
citizen forfeits neither his civil nor his
religious liberty. The civil service law
was intended not to destroy these rights,
but to protect tliem. so tuat tne minor
official should at least be as secure in de
fending the creed and nominees of his
party .is would be a Cabinet olficer in
exercising the same inalienable rights.
"No objection on our part to my activity
in the campaign which has just
closed was ever made known to me
pending the campaign. On the con
trary, I was informed that yon held to
the view that you could not consistently
remove any man from office for exercis
ing the same rights which you yourself
were exercising. My removal from office,
the first intimation of which was
obtained from the newspapers while on
the train on my return to W; hington
from my home, was therefore a complete
surprise to me. No one knows better
than yourself the long friendship I lisd
manifested for you, the interest I had
taken, and the sacrifices of time and
money made oy me in promoting your
ambitions. In view of all the facts, it
seems to me that I was at lea't entitled
to some warning and notice before be
ing kicked ont of office, without even
the opportunity of declining to resign.
"Ilrtl I known or suspected that
could not hold office under this admin
istration and at the same time exercised
the rights of an American freeman, I
would have promptly tendered my n
ignation at tne opening ot this cam
"Inasmuch as other appointees of the
present administration, including main
in your own department, have been per
mitted to take an active part against Mr.
Bryan in the campaign, not only on the
stump, but in the work of organization,
without rebuke or removal, it is evident
that the cause of my offending lies not
iu my actions, but in my convictions. It
follows, therefore, that you have usel
your great office to suppress freedom of
thought and action, and to punish those
who dare to differ from you a thiug in
supportable iu tree government by ter
rorizing over the weak and humble. For
such abuse of public ofllce, which is a
public trust, you cannot tint be held accountable
at the bar of public opinion as
well as by the verdict of history.
'In conclusion I can only say that,
humble as I am, I would rather be a discharged
employe of the Treasury De
partmentdischarged for doing my duty
as I see it for my people than to be
Secretary of the Treasury with a record
of such as you have
made for yourself, staring me in the face,
JJns much of a protest I deem it
proper to make against vour treacherous
and tyrannous action.
Very truly yours,
TIlEIIl PERSONAL RELVTIONS.
Judge Fleming ghessome interesting
fects regarding his connections with
Carlisle, of whom he has been a
warm friend and admirer for jears,
Judge Fleming received the first intima
tion of his removal from the newspa
pers, and says he would not have believed
it except for the fact that he had
beeu under orders to proceed to Savan
nah on business of the Treasury De
partment, and he had received a tele
gram canceling the order.
"I have been assassinated in the
house of my friend," declared Jndge
Fleming. "Nature has given the most
venomous reptile a rattle, and ordained
that it shall give warning before itstrikes;
he dog growls before it bites, but I
have been 6truck a blow in tire dark, and
without a sound of warning."
According to Judge Fleming's state
ment, he lias worked tirelessly to ad
vance tiie political aspirations of Mr. Carlisle
for years. He organized the Wat
terson Club in Kentucky, and declares
that he now lias in possession a
letter from Carlisle, addressed to him
about the time of the Kentucky state
convention in 1892, asking him to use
liis influence to see that the delegates
to the national convention went com
milted to Mr. Carlisle's candidacy for the
presidential nomination. When Mr,
Carlisle was tendered tho treasury port
folio he gave? ndge Fleming the position
from which he has just been dismissed,
without solicitation on the part of Judge
Fleming or anybody else.
Judgo Fleming is a warm friend of
Hon. Joe Blackburn as well, and when
the Kentucky Senalorship fight came up
the question as to what course Judge
Fleming would take on the currency
question arose. Judge Fleming says he
first asked whether Mr. Carlisle was a
candidate for the Senate, and upon be
ing informed in the negative, declared
his intentions of supporting Mr. Blackburn
Not long after that, he says,
thinking it barely possible that his
course might have displeased Mr. Car
lisle, lie placed his resignation iu the
hands of a mutual friend, who presented
it to Mr. Carlisle, and the latter de-
clinei to accept it
"He knew that he could have my res
ignation any time he wanted it,'Baid
the Judge. "I- hadit from a close friend
of Mr. Carlisle's that he had told the
President at Gray Gables that he could
not remove a man for exercising the
same right otspeech that he claimed for
himself, and that to long as a speaker
refrained from abutiing the administra

THE DISMISSAL OK RYAN.
Among the employe dismissed from
the service without warning or notice,
from the Treasury Department on the
4th of November was Williaai E Ryan ot
the miscellaneous, division, Secretary's
office. Mr. Ryan was appointed to a
$900 clerkship, through civil services, in
tbe Register's office. Treasury
twelve years ago and through
his ability and efficiency was promoted
to a third class clerkship prior to the
advent of this administration. At the
beginning of this administration Mr.
Ryan was an applicant for the position of
Assistant Register of the Treasury
Department, and it is said lo have
worked day and night for three weeks to
effect the appointment of the present
Begitterof the Treasury Department,
J. Font Tillman. Owing to Mr. Ryan's
ability, Sectretary Carlisle detailed him
to assist in the settlement of the $12,000,
000 of "sugar bounty claims" under the
McKinley tariff bill, and s.j well did Mr.
Ryan perform the duty that the Hon.
R. B. Bowler commended hiin in a letter
to the Secretary of the Treasury.
Mr. Ryan was then requested to apsist
in settling the "army engineers' accounts''
then placed in the Indian division
of the Fifth Auditor adjusting
Indian agents' accounts, and finally
transferred to the Secretary's own office
August 1, 1890.
Mr. Ryan for years has been a bimetal-list
and a believer in free coinage. On
October 10, 1S9G, Mr. Ryan, after receiving
the nomination for Congress in the
Thirty-first district of New York by 139
votes against 21 for Howard W. Sneck,
made application through his chief of
division for "leave of absence without
pay" until Nov. 5. 1890.
RAX AHEAD 6F UK TICKET-
In the district Mr, Ryan stood for Congress
on the Democratic ticket consisting
of the city of Rochester and 19
towns in Monroe county. There were
seven candidates in the field.
The total vote cast for Congressman
was 44.461, of which Mr. Ryan received
17,0S3, while the vote cast for the Bryan
and Sewall electors was 10,198, and the
vote cast for Hon. Henry C. Brewster
Mr. Ryan is not only popular at his
horns, Rochester, N. Y, but also in
Washington, ann mucn regret 13 ex
pressed on all sides at his dismissal. He
is a poor man, with a wife and four
children, and has nmrked a splendid
abilities along certain lines.
Mr. Ryan lias under consideration the
contesting of Mr. Brewster's seat owing
to the use for the first time in the
city of Rochester, N. Y., of the Meyers
ballot machine, which failed to record
over 150 Democratic votes in the First
precinct of the Fifteenth ward, while the.
machine broke down in many other
wards and was continually fixed and
tampered with during the day of the
THE ATTACKS ON BLACKBURN.
What is the secret of the Courier-Jour
nal's continuous assaults upon Black
burn? Is it the result of a person quarrel
or does the Courier-Journal expect
to continue to work for Republican supremacy
in this state? If there is bad
feeling between either the owner or editors
of the Courier-Journal and Senator
Blackburn, they ought to retire to some
quiet place and fight it out where the
public will be saved ot the annoyance of
the quarrel. If, on the other hand, the
Courier-Journal is simply assailing
Blackburn becauEe he is the leader of
the free-silver forces and because it
wants to strengthen the Republican par
ty in tlfiRState, it should come out frank
ly and admit its purpose.
Joe Blackburn has a larger personal
following than another public man in
Kentucky. His friends are devoted to
him because he has the qualities of head
and heart that go to make up the typical
Kentuckian. He has the courage to
a press that has for years tried to control
the politics of this State. He has
f the honesty to stand up for a party prin
cipal which lie believes to be right, and
which he refuses to repudiate at the
bidding of those who have deserted the
standard of Democracy and enlisted under
the Republican banner.
Outside of Louisville, Joe Blackburn
has the support of the people, and if by
any trick or fraud ho is cheated out of
the Senatorship this time, he will here-turned
in Lindsay's place. The misrepresentations
of the Courier-Journal may
delight the Republicans and the gold
standard Democrats who flock with them,
but the real Democrats of Kentucky believe
in Jo Blackburn, and stand ready
to resent the insults that a vicious press
is attempting to heap upon him.

Are we not told that the stars aud ittripes

man' freethinkers have to conceal their
real opinions in order to be able to earn
a living? Do the church-going people
not prefer a hypocritical "Christ inn" to

Dr. Talmage and other great lights

According to these reverned gentlemen,
religious freedom means tho freedom
