If you are n t convinced that the
recent election was not for free silver,
ju.st look around and see the workings
of the toll gate raider. That is ono
"pr.H)f of the puddin'." Pantagraph.
The "proof of tho puddin' " lies in
the fact that seventy five per cent, of
the toll gate raiders in Kentucky are
Republicans. The statistics prove It,
wherever the raiders have been
brought to trial, as was the case in
Mercer county. Now then, eat your
A xrjjiiEn of pure pold bug editors,
and one not a thousand miles from
Richmond, which did their utmost to
defeat the Democratic party, now use
the pronoun "e'' when referring to the
creat victory achieved over the Republicans
in Kentucky and other States,
which shows conclusively that they
managed to retain a plethoria of "cheek"
while lusting after strange political gods.
The Courier-Journal has been guilty of
many mean things, but it has not had
the audacity yet to claim any credit for
the great Democratic victory.
The type-setting machines sometimes
get obstreperous, as you've
noticed in the dally papers. Here is
the way the Glasgow Times turns
such a mistake into an amusing political
"The Louisville Di match excitedly

That's right exactly right. The
Democracy of Kentucky stands by

The gold Democracy, as that movement
was called, is, as an organiza
tion, a thing of the past. It fought a
good fight, a game fight, an honest
fight; but it had nothing back of it except
good intentions and nothing in
front of it except a ret of imjossible
uieais. it snowed itseir, indeed, a
body of Generals without an army.
Its votaries have nothing to be
ashamed of. If we liad the whole
thing to do over again, believing what
we believed then and not knowing
what we know now, we should not
hesitate to place the same reliance
upon our estimate of the popular intelligence
and virtue. But it being
that the people want no third party,
and that they w ill support no organized
movement to rescue the country- from
Hie two extremes, we abandon that
particular form of'seeking the attainment
of truth. But we do not abandon
sound economic ideas of government

Ho:. W. J. Bry.vs was in Louisville
last Saturday to attend a conference
of the State Democratic leaden
and although he specifically requeued
that no demonstrations be made
which was not an indelicate lequest
in view of the fact that he is the most
attractive personage on the globe today,
the people turned out en masse
and thepnvate meeting spread outall
over Louisville. From the Ohio river
to Beargrass Creek and from
to the Water Works the
honest yeomanry turned out to hear
him who is the incarnation of human
rights. And besides these there were
all the foremost Democrats of Ken
tucky to greet "that man from Nebraska,"
as the puling Times had it.
From Madison were Hons J. B.
W. B. Smith, John B.
P. H. Sulhvan, J. Tevis Cobb
and J. P. Simmons. An important
feature of the conference was the
unanimous resolve to give increased
aid to our btate organ, the Dispatch,
which has been of incalculable service
in redeeming Kentucky from Republicanism.
And to the end of maintaining
our bnpremacy let every
Democrat buy the Dispatch and
thereby help the cause of the people.

A Fearless Republican Editor
Exposes The Weak Points
of His Party.
CHOICE BITS FO RWLMER CHEWING.
Frankfort, Nov. 0. The result of
the election just had in Kentucky,
settles a good many more things
than the Appellate Clerkship race;
it settles the future of politics in this
Stato barring a miraclo of course.
The overwhelming victory of
Shackelfoid means that there will be
but one Democratic party in Kentucky;
that the picture of Thomas
Jefferson and his fig leaves will never
again appear on a ballot in this Stato;
that William Goehel, P P. Johnson
or P. Wat Hardin will bo tho next
Governor; and that Jo Blackburn
will succeed Senator Lindsay.
The miracle that might change this
program is the of tho
Republican party upon the lines of
181)5, for the gold standard against
the free coinage of silver, with such a
complete change of leaders as would
satisfy the sound money" men that
the Republican party in Kentucky
stands for a principle and not merely
for pie. And then furnish an opportunity
for such a miracle to operate
in Kentucky, tho McKinley adminis
tration must give up tho policy of
lying and deceit in party politics that
Mark Hannn has made the guiding
principle so far; the criminal alliance
with the infamous A. P. A. organiza
tion in Kentucky, Kansas and Michigan,
must be repudiated; and finally
McKinley must reverse his policy of
temporizing on the currency qnestion
as he did by sending that ridiculous,
roving commission to work a political
stage illusion with a proposition
to the European monetary powers for
the reopening of the mints to the
coinace of silver, well knowing that
they would emphatically refuse to
In Kentucky, with Bradley, Wilson,
Wood and their kind, set aside

and Deboe and tho whole organization

hunters and A. P. A. scoundrels;
with the Frankfort penitentiary reeking
with the scandal of the chair
contract job; with the decent element
of old line Republicans driven out of
the organization to make room for
the worst scoundrels that have
sloughed off from the Democratic
party, and with the Republican
"leaders" ostentatiously parading
the Negro question and associating
on terms of social equality with Negroes
in police uniforms: What
chance is there to get gold Democrats
to vote with them again soon ?
And what chance lias the Republican
party without the aid of a large part
of of the Democratic party?
The big Democratic majority in the
next Legislature will begin to investigate
the prison scandal and the rottenness
of the last Senatorial contest,
and the incompetent politicians who
have been playing at politics for a
few months are still buzzing and
bumping their heads about the flick
ering candle light of their accidental
tenure of office.
Hunter and Deboe tried to make a
fusion of Republicans and policy-shop
Democrats in Covington to beat Senator
William Goehel; and Goehel
will have his inning in January.
What a merciless investigation it will
be, with Goebel and Bronston to conduct
it! How much better it would
have been for the Republicans who
wanted to continue in ollice to have
devoted themselves to the faithful
discharge of their duties, rather than
to have spent their two yeais of supremacy
in a wild effort to follow the
small-headed Hunter through all the
devious and disreputable windings
of his sneaking political course.
'ihe result of the election shows
that the people of Kentucky prefer a
Kentucky gentleman like Jo Blackburn
to an unidentified
like Huntei ; and tho rule of the Negro,
the A P. A. and the know-nothing will
not he tolerated. Mark llanua will
not send another "Sam Taylor," to
run a session of the Kentucky Legislature.
Kentucky has formally indorsed
Gov. Bradley's famous mes
sage to llanna to mind his own
business. It is out of place to say to
the Huuterites, "I told you so," because
nobody with any political
sense ever doubted tho disastrous
results that would fo.l jw the trickery,
bribery and general assininity and
rascality of the last Legislature.
With honest Lieutenant Governor
Worthington presiding over the Senate,
and clean, feariess Cripps Beckham
in the speaker's chair in the
House, and Bill Lyons away waiting
on Bill Deboe, the only drawback to
a really enjoyable session of tho General
Assembly will be the continued
of tho late William Henry
Jonc& of Barren, in the Senate. But
the Lord knoweth best, and it may be
for the best that wo will have to endure
William Henry for a little while
However, the miserable crew that
disgraced the Stato in two sessions
of the Legislature will never bo seen
again. Decent Kentuck.'ans like
Bradley, Blackburn, Wi son, Goebel,

Editor Frankfort Capital.
Madison county has a worthy applicant
for Doorkeeper of the Lower
House of the next General Assembly
in the person of Mr. Charles Embry,
of Waco, a young man of sterling
qualities and unsullied Democracy.
That he is a young man can be no dir-ability,
for a large proportion of our
legislators, like himself, are not far
on either side of thirty. His parly
fealty, his high character, his unquestioned
worthiness, his large Democratic
connection, commend him as
peuculiarly fit for tho position. Aside
from all this he is afflicted with such
physical disabilities as renders the
race of life and uneven strugnle for
him, and there is no member of that
august body which will be called
upon to parcel out the spoils of our
late victories who would not feel
proud that ho had cast his vote for
one so deserving of the place which
Mr. Embry asks for. By birth and by
preference a Democrat, known and
respected by his neighbors, his race
for the doorkeepership will be
watched with interest by the redeemed
county of Madison whose
Democracy offers him zs ono of its
representatives in whom there Is no
guile. Stand by Embry, of Madison.
Merrill Martin Shot John J. Ryan to Death.
Merrctt Martin, son ot Joe. Martin,
formerly of this city, but now of
taxington, and local agent of the
Chattanouga Brewing company, shot
John J. Ryan to death in the latter's
salloon at Lexington last Tuesday,
Until a few moments before tho
enactment of the tragedy tho men
were good friends, and the revolver
from which the fatal bullet was fired
had been given to Martin by Ryan
during the afternoon. It appears that
Ryan had been dickering all day for
the sale of his saloon and had called
in several of his creditors, that the
deal might bo properly closed. Martin
was one of Rjan's creditors.
They disputed over the settlement,
and angry words led to blows. Ryan
struck at Martin, who drew his revolver.
A bystander, knocked the revol
ver down, and the first two shots
went into the floor, hut the third entered
Ryan's abdomen. He fell to
the floor, crying, ''I am done for.
Dcn't shoot again, Merritt." Martin
put the revolver up and surrendered
to the police. Ryan died at the hospital
10 minutes later.
A special to the Louisville Times
from Lexington of November 19, says:
Merritt Martin, who shot and killed
John J. Ryan in the latter's saloon
heie Monday night, was to-day
acquitted on examination by Judpe
Falconer. It was proven to the court
that Ryan had a pistol and fired the
Railroad Men Much Concerned Over The
Air-Brako Law A Petition Being
The railroad companies of the country
are very much concerned about

The enforcement of the act on
January 1, would work a great hardship
upon the roads just now, and
possibly even a greater hardship
upon tho shippers and freight patrons
of the roads.
It is clii.uied that it would tako
nearly t dollars to equip
the L. & I with tho appliances required

could not possibly got ready to meet
the new requirement by January 1.
Every shipper and business man to
whom tho petition lias been presented

Here is tho way it is in Lexington:
"The movement stnrted by the
Gazette several weeks ago against
cneap railroad excursions to near-by
cities, has culminated in a concerted
movement among the merchants and
traders o Lexington looking to tl3
suppression of una most insidious
attack upon their interests. This
movement cannot fail to.have great
influence in breaking up this evil.
When people who have a few dollars
to speud are offered the, inducemenb
of chpap railroad fares to go abroad to
spend them, it is not surprising that
