Krtas has settled the question of j
his speaking for Goebel by stating
positively hat he would do so.
Soar of the Goebel organs hat

Jon YorKa Baows's speech at
the Lexington conference of the
an ti -Goebel Democrats last week
was a remarkably fine effort of im
passioned eloquence. It is well
worth anybody's reading.

It is right and honest to be a bolt

be more so as time rolls by. In fact
it now looks like the bolters are in

Tm opponents of the ticket
placed in the field by the Louisville
convention have plenty of material
in the records of that remarkable
assemblage for campaign purposes.
If Democrats, when they come to
thoroughly understand the ins and
outs and the methods that were
used to set aside the will of the
Democratic party as expressed in
their regularly constituted county
meetings, there can be but one re
suit, and that will be the defeat of
the Louisville ticket. Covington
Ia an interview in the Chicago
Record, John P. Altgeld says :"Goe.
bel will be crushed to atoms. The
Democrats of Kentucky will not
tolerate methods that override the
will of the people. Goebel was nom

does not like that sort of thing and
It will bo rebuked at the polls." In
regard to Bryan bo Mid : "He con
not support Goebel. It is not un
likely that ho will come out posi
tively against him." Altgeld die
claimed actual knowledge of what
Bryan would do, however.

and to prove my assertion I will
quote from Democratic authority,
I will just quote John C. Calhoun,
the great statesman of South Car
olina, a few days before his death,
his friends sitting around his bed
discussing the future of the Dem
ocratic party. Mr. Calhoun lis
tened to his friends for some time
and then remarked : "My friends,
allow me a few words." His friends
said: "Speak on, Mr. Calhoun; say
what you please." Mr. Calhoun
then safd : "Well, ray friends, allow
me to say the leadership of the
Democratic party is held together
by the cohesive power of public
plunder." These facts point out
the keen, penetrating, far-seeing,
profound statesmanship, patriotism
and common honesty that charac
terized the immortal Calhoun, the
great statesman of South Carolina
A tew days before old Alexander
Stephens, of Georgia, passed away
several of his friends were sitting
around his bedside discussing the
future of this country and the Dem

tened to his friends some time and
then said : "My friends, will you
allow me a few words?" Several
of his friends spoke out at once
and said : "Speak on, Mr. Steph
ens, and say what you please."
Mr. Stephens remarked : "Well, my
friends, allow me to say that the
Democratio party has ceased to
practice Democracy." After a few
minutes' pause be said: "My
friends, allow me to say that we
have no Democratic party today.
The great principle for which
Washington fought and free men
died in 1776 was the right of man
to govern himself. Today this right
is denied by the leadership of the
so-called Democratic and Republi

party with two names, one snake
with two heads to it. The only
difference between them is one can

To the Democrats of Kentucky:
A representative meeting of Ken
tucky Democrats was held at Lex
ington on Wednesday, August 2,
to determine what ought to be done
to preserve our integrity as a party,
promote our future welfare, and
rebuke the wrongs of the late so-
called Democratic convention held
in Louisville. After mature de
liberation it was determined that a
convention of the Democrats of
Kentucky who are in favor of civil
liberty and honest party govern
ment be held at Lexington, Ky,
August 16, 1899, for the purpose of
nominating Democratic candidates
who will command the respect and
will be entitled to the support of
every Democrat in the State.
By this meeting I was recognized
as the chairman of the State Dem
ocratic Committees. Therefore, by
virtue of my authority as said
chairman,I appeal to the Democrats
of Kentucky to assemble at their
respective county-seats in mass
convention on Saturday, August 12,
1899, at 1 o clock p. m., or at such
other time or place prior to August
16, 1899, as will be most convenient,
and appoint delegates as directed
by the Lexington meeting, to at
tend the general convention in Lex
ington, Ky., August 16, 1899.
Delegates to attend such con
vention from counties which have
heretofore acted are hereby recog
nized as regular delegates to the
P. P. Johnston,
Chairman Democratic State Cen
tral and Executive Committee.
A Child Lacgh. io day can
be so holy but the laugh of a child
will make it holier still. Strike
with hand of fire, oh wierd musi
cian, thy harp strung with Apollo s
golden hair. Fill the vast cathedral
aisles with symphonies sweet and
dim, deft touches of the organ's
keys. Blow, bugler, blow, until thy
silver notes do touch and kiss the
moonlight waves that charm lovers
wandering over hills vine clad. Yet
know ye that your music is discord
as compared to the laugh of a child
that laugh that marks the boun
dary line between the beasts and
men and every wayward wave of
which doth drown some fretful
fiend of care. Oh, laughter, rose
lipped daughter of jov, there are
enough dimples in thy cheeks to
catch and hold and glorify all the
