And yet, overwhelmed by the fury of

To admit bo much ia to acknowledge

Kentucky Democracy is like tbe
Spanish government? Dominated by
a band of would-be leaders whose
highest conception of their party's interest
and duty to same is measured
by their own ideas of personal aggran
dizement. Within the last quarter of
a century a sufficiency of money bas
been expended on tbe army and
navy of Spain to make ber a formidable
foe, but tbe same, through du
plictly of her leaders found service in
private enterprise, fspam continues
to disintegrate. Enough eulogy and
praise of Kentucky Democracy have
been thrown to the four winds, if iu
print, would weigh an elephant to
earth and yet they have robbed the
old party of pride, stability and lion
or too. tibe too is disintegrating.
HIE mountain txho, answering
Coulter's charge of tissue ballots
speaks clearly and in unmistakable
terms saying: "vynen Uoulter says
that tbo ballots used in Laurel, Jackson,
Owsley, Leslie, Harlan, Casey,
Russell or Metcalf counties were tis
sue ballots he lies, and when he swears
that these counties or any or any
01 tnem used tissue ballots or paper
thinner than the statues contemplate,
ho swears a lie. The ballots for those
counties were printed at tho Moun
tain EtJio job office and we know
whereof we speak." We admire the
manly firmness and pluck of tho Echo
in the defense of what it knows to be
true. It appears to be bad taste to
call an elephant "a big long-nosed,
club-footed mule." It
ii best to denominate men and things
us they are.
The duplicity, fraud and corruption
of Goebelhtn is now crystalized
la the form of nu nddnss from the
"Bosses'' to the Democracy of Kentucky.
Tim address pppears over
the names of toe members of the
Democratic organization This ad-Iresa
was doubtless conceived in the
mind of Win. Goebel. To stimulate
his weak and weary followers, he finds
it necessary to put a "new song into
their mouths," aMhe Gei.sral on tbe
field of battle commands the several
divisions of liii army through his
trusted lieutenants; likewise Bill
Goebel now stamllug behind the cur-lain
commands his faithful lieutenants
uiul Colooelsto unite in ouo stroug
plea of ''Republican fraud and Intim.
Idation." True . to thnt command
eery,oue hrssacrificed himself.
The chief causa which makes the
Goebelits desperate Is kuowledge of
the fact that their course has been one
'f the most villainous and corrupt
known tu modern politics; that au
outraged people will endure such
conspirators no more; that their
bridges are burned behind them and
me tuiure lor tnem made barren union
they cau steal the government
from the Republicans and patch up
the weak places in that infamy of infamies
the Goebel Electlou Law. It
is a fact known to them that with the
passing of their clan, party perfidy
and dishonor, tho Republican party
will rule Kentucky for many yean
Hence their desperation. Men like
Goebel mid Blackburn have nothing
to lose (all being losi) and uny gain
which they may make through fraud
or othewiae will fiud tin in eagerly
and anxiously awaiting.
Nevkii yet lias lato decreed that
intelligent, ambitious youth should
bow to poverty and ignorance.
The Qnebcllte lieutenants and
mercenaries driven to desperation in
defeat now charge that the Republicans
and honest Democrats who sup
ported Taylor and Brown entered the
sauctum sanctorum over which they
alone stood guard and actually did
purposely, inteotionlv noyona doubt
steal the election and tbo fruits there
of from him who had promised hire so
much. It Is uncompromisingly " I more powerful combattant in the

What Goebel can do with the
Kentucky Legislature remains yet to

within the realms of possibilities none
question that he will never be Gov
ernor of Kentucky is not to be doubt
ed. Kentucky manhood has spoken
and its mandate must be respected, the
howling mob of office. Beekers to the
contrary notwithstanding. It was
thought to be impossible for Goebel
to get the nomination of tbe Music
Hall Convention having only 1G7
instructed votes out of over 1,000.
Yet he hoodood and hood winked Capt,
and organized tbe con
vention throwing out enough honest
delegates and seating in their stead

failed to have the election Where he
had the convention, failing In calcu

county are now brought face to face
with the question: "Shall we patronize

owned by home capitol? It should be
remembered that the Cumberland Co,
was asked to build lines through this
section and to put au exchange up in
Hartford. Asatisfactory answer never
came. Then when it appeared that
we would have no exchange. Messrs.
Mattingly and Ford undertook the
task to give us an exchange and connection
with all Important towns of
the county and with Owensboro. In
this they have succeeded. Iu addition
to this, they have given the
people a ten-cent rate, the Cumberland
rate haying been 25 cents, Jt is
possible that an exchange rato of 50
cents per month will be given by the
Cumberland Co. in order to run out
our home exchange It should be
rejected. Such an offer would only
stand until the home company was
run out then the rate would go up
again. Let's stand by home. Home
first, lust and all tlie'timo.
What will the Brown element
do? is a question often asktd nowadays
To answer tho question properly it
should be known ot what that clement
is composed. Tbe observer
readily sees in it. Men of firmness,
semi-firmness and no firmness at all.
Those without firmness wero whipped

demagogue and Guebelized. Under
the head of semi-firmness should be
classed all those who passively held
the interest of the State above party

took as au excuse to return or
"hang on," what some Individual

In such no confidence can repose.

VICTORIES OF THE STUDY.
The Nineteenth century baa been
thn mint nvAntliil fa all the tide of
time. Such strides have been made
in the advancement of civilization
were never known to any other century.
Tbe closing years of tho
have seen nations living In
tirotberly love through periods
r(0 unknown. The mighty scepter
power has passed from tho car
' mouth to the sphere of Intel-,
'ectual splendor. The sword finds a
combat of mind with mind now
reigns.The Wellingtons aod Napoleons
have become Teunvsons and Hugo's.
The battlefield (the old icbool oi
nation) gives way to the cullego and
university. The scenes of many a
bloody battle of the earlier part of the
century are much to be regretted, but
pass as marvels of tbe age. The at
tention uf tbo present now centcis

tbe hour is ho who is able to deliver
to humanity the greatest amount of
good. Ho who conceived tho plan ot

About the Contest.
Among other counties that Gas
Coulter, in his notice of contest, ac
cuses of having used tissue ballots in
the late November election, Is Laurel
Mow, all that we have to say in regard
to this matter Is that when he says
that the ballots used in Laurel, Jack
son, Owsley, Leslie, Harlan, Casey,
Russell or Metcalf county, were tissue
ballots he lies, and when he swears
that these counties, or any of them,
used tissue ballots, or paper thinner
than the statutes contemplate
he sweats a He, The ballots for these
counties were printed at the Mountain
Echo job office, and we know whereof
we speak. Forour part we are willing
to let the contest rest upon the kind of
oapor or the manner in which the bal
lots for these counties were printed
Whit say you, Mr Coulter? Then it
follows, that If his notice in this par
ilcular is false. It Is false throughout
More than this, we are willing to leave
the legality of the ballots la this coun
ty to the board ot election cotntnis
sioners in this county, a majority of
whom voted for Mr. Coulter.

to follow Hopkins county is not even

Perfidy, disregard for oaths, political
dishonesty and partisan hatred are

from the Governor's chair. Will he

Coulter in his contest against Auditor
Sweeney, we note tint of tissue bal
