A BLOOMING FARCE.

Nor iiIhI NtMle mf Aflklrn- The
Jury llondercd a Verdict el
Acqnlllnl In Tw Minute.
The farslcal character of the elec
tions held in taxington was never bet
ter illustrated than in the trial to-day
of D. B. Saffarans and Charles Roberts
for frauds in Duck's precinct at the
last August election, when John J.
Sullivan was counted In over Letcher
Lnsby for City Marshal.
Dan Saffarans was Sheriff and Chas.
Roberts a Judge at this election and
were tried together, William McNa
mara, clerk, and Dan Scott, the other
judge, asking for separate trials.
Messrs. Wellington Payne, B. P.
Carpenter, E. B. Hayman, W. E. Hib
ler, and L. P. Young swore upon the
stand that they did not vote for Sulli
van; that they did not know he was a
candidate, and that his name was not
on the tally sheet when they voted.
The tally sheet, signed and certified
to under the oaths of the defendants
as officers of election, was offered in
evidence, and showed that all of these
gentlemen were recorded as voting
for John J. Sullivan for City Marshal.
Dan Scott and Dan Saffarans testi
fied that B. J. Welch, Chairman of
the Democratic County Committee,
called at the voting place about 10
o'clock on the day of the election and
instructed the officers to place the
name of John J. Sullivan on the tally
sheet for City Marshal.
The polls had been open long enough
for the clerk to fill about one page
with the names of voters, none of
whop w'ere reoordad as voting for any ,
candidate for City Marshal. ; I
-CApTl" later according to the tes
timony of Baffaraua and Roberta, Mr.
Welch returned, and pointing to the
flrat page of names said in substance :
"Boys, fill up that page for Sullivan,
and make him equal with the Demo
William McNamara, the clerk, was
put on the stand, but he could not re
member anything about the election.
He did not even know whether it was
in August; He did not remember
whether Sullivan's name was put on
before or after the polls opened, and
could not tell the jury by what author
ity men were recorded as voting for
Sullivan who did not know he was a
candidate, and who would have taken
great pleasure in voting against him
had they been consulted.
The poll-books were shown him and
he admitted that Messrs. Pay ne, Young,
Carpenter, llibler and Hayman were
recorded in his handwriting as voting
for Sullivan for City Marshal, although
these men testified on oath that they
did not so vote.
Mr. Roberts, one of the defendants,
testified that he had never acted as
judge before; that he had been forced
to serve against his will, and that he
signed the poll-book in good faith
wit hout examining it to see if the clerk
had properly recorded the votes. He
said he had not taken any part in fal
sifying the record, and had signed the
sheet as a matter of form, supposing
everything was all right. He had
heard Mr. Welch give his instructions,
but said he did not know thut the
clerk had committed any fraud.
Mr. Safturns said he hud been acting
as an officer of elections for tweuty
five years, and had never known of a
case of a Judge or sheriff examining
the poll-books to see whether every
thing was all right before signing and
certifying to the record.
E. B. Hayman testified that as he
went to vote Mr. Saflarans said:
"Come in, we've got somo good Dem
ocrats for you to vote for." " I went
inside," said Mr. Huymun, "and
looked over the book to see who were
running. I indicated who I wanted to
vote for, and am sure Mr. Sullivan's
name was not on the tally-sheet, and
was not voted for by ni."
McNumura, on orowt-examinutiou
by Judge Jewell, said he supposed
when the chairman of the Democratic
Central Committee ordered him to
putiulllvan's name on the ticket he
thought that was enough uuthorlty
for recording all Democrats for him.
Mr. Watts Parker, In his statement
to the Jury for the defense, contended
that tint officers of election hud in
tended no fraud in currying out the
order of Mr. Welch to run Sullivan
evull with the Democratic ticket. He
said that the Judges hud committed
no crime iu permitting the clerk to
enter up all the Democrat as voting
fur Sullivan; especially us therw wus
but ouecuudidaU) running ut the time.
He admitted thut tho conduct of the
otlloers was technically wrong, but
denied that any criminal act had been
If there Is no wrong In deliberately
falsifying the record of an election
when but one candidate Is running,
why not do away with general elec
tions and authorise the Democratic
Committee to carry out the will of the
Democratic primaries and declare who
Messrs. Jewell and Parker claimed
In substance that no great harm was
done In taking It for granted that men
voting the straight Democratic ticket
would have voted for Sullivan, and so
recording them without authority.
Conceding this remarkable claim,
how do the able attorneys Justify
Clerk McNamara for recording and
the judges for permitting him to re
cord Republicans like E. B. Hayman
and B. P. Carpenter, and a Prohibi
tionist like W. E. Hlbler for Sullivan T
In the case of Mr. Hlbler the out
rage was more inexcusable than In
the other cases, as the claim cannot
be made that his vote was entered for
Sullivan In the haste of recording him
for other candidates.
As a matter of fact, he expressly
stated that he did not want to vote on
anything but the turnpike question,
and yet he is recorded by Clerk Mc
Namara as voting for John J. Sulli
van. Colonel John R. Allen, who con
ducted the prosecution, submitted the
case without argument, and the de
fense did likewise.
The jury, after an absence of two
minutes, returned a verdict of not
Colonel Allen, in view of the failure
to convict Saffarans and Roberts,
moved that the cases against McNa
mara and Scott be filed away.
Judge Morton announced that he
would take the matter under advise
ment. Oood citizens of all political parties
have been watching for the trial of
these cases with much interest, and
hope that every man concerned In
the notorious election frauds of lost
August will be prosecuted "to a fin
ish." The testimony offered to-day in the
cases against Saffarans and Roberts
proved that they made no effort to
prevent frauds, but it was not nearly
so conclusive as against William Mc
Namara, the clerk, who admits record
ing the fraudulent votes.
A vigorous prosecution of every
case might result In sending a few
election officers to the penitentiary,
and the honest people of Lexington
hope that no efforts will be spared to
bring every offender to a speedy trial.
In the interest of justice Colonel
Allfm.ottght to withdraw njtsmotloit
to file away. As matters stand the
Colonel may not be able to sccure'any
convictions, but he can by a deter
mined prosecution of every indicted
officer check the tendency to election

About Liquor In Florida.
Mr. B. F. Williams, one of the
prominent citizens of tliia city is a
total abstainer ami a eood friend
to tlio Blade. He spent last win

and was telling me the other day
altout tho liquor drinking senti

He is fond ot fishing and siient

lie came buck to his hotel and
sent a negro for them with a
wheel-barrow. They used all of
his fioh to manure cocoanut trees,
aud ate tarpon that they thought
much better. (He is not a fish
liar.) He said he noticed thut in
the town where he was staying
and where his hotel was "four
times as big as tho 1'hu'iiix Hotel
here" he never saw a saloon, aud
never saw a man druuk and never
saw, or heard, a cose of any kind
of disor Jer.
He said that, just to nee if there
was any arrangement for getting
any whisky in tho town, ho weut

where hu could gut some. The
clerk told him of a certain house
in the city that had rooms iu its
husomeut, and said that if hu
would go to room No. 7 in thut
basement he thought a rather
elderly gentleman, us Mr. Wil

not go to see.

our good citizens, hud gone to

Here in Kentucky we have a
way of faying Hint in the North
where the people are fish -blooded,
and phlegmatic they do not incline
to stimulants, but that the warm,
generouH, impulsive, whole-souled
nature of the true Southron makes
it just at natural for him to drink
r. t .
liquor as it is tor a chick to go
barefooted, fint the fact is thut
while Kentucky is only separated
by a river from these Northern
cold bloods, Florida is tho ex
treme limit of the South.
The explanation is t lint it is
simply a lack of hraiiM4-froMr
home training among our people,
mat muKcs them want liquor.
The aristocratic young sup
heads ol nur cities drink whisky
because they think it is smart,
and because they do not know
enough to entertain themselves
intellectually, and tho country
boys do it because they think the
town boys know it all.
There s many a young man
about hero who drinks whisky as
a cloak for his ignorance and stu
pidity. He has found out his lack ol
brains and education and uses
whisky simply to disguise the
fact, by trying to convey the im
pression that he would be a genius
if he did not have the fashionable
failing of tony society.
It is here just as it is elsewhere.
When a young man has been
properly reared, and has proper
appreciat ion of what count it u en
the dignity of manhood, he is, in
the JJIuegruss region of Kentucky,
just what such men arc elsewhere,
and is living a moral hie, and does
not regard the drinking of whisky
as the proper thing for him.

necessary to fill up ou Kentucky
bust heud in order to show the
immense difference between the
47 percent high protective tariff of
the Republicans and the 42 per
cent of low taritt lor revenue only,
ot the Democrats.
There is one advantage however
to the Democrats in having both
the Democratic orator and his
audience pretty well filled with
whisky, that even as a defendeut
of Prohibition I am bound to ad
mit: and that is that uo thoroughly
sober man can see -any ditlercuce
between the Democrats ami thu
The greatest issue before the
people is the liquor question, in
volving more ot finance and po
litical com latency and integrity
than all other issues put together,
and tho two old parties arc per
fectly agreed upon that, the only
difference being thut thu Demo
crats are honest enough to udmit
their devotion to the liquor traf
fic, while the Republicans deny it,
and lio about it.
The next iu importance is tho
tariff question. On . this point
they are ho near together thut the
ditlercuce is merely nominal. The
most advanced thought of the
country is against any tariff and
it is forcing the Republicans down
aud down, while tho Democruts,
who really want Iree trade and
have uot tho courage to suy it ,
uro simply heading oil thu Repub
licans by keeping jint so far be
low tliuiil as will keep tho Re
publican trow rutting under
them, whilvj tho Democrat will
keep just u little nearer to the
proplc, us tho lust Congressional
election showed, by keeping just
a little closer to free t ratio.
There is no sentiment about
this; it is siniidy n fact that a "pro
tective taritl is for the benefit of
tho "upper ten" while five trade
is for tho lower million, ami of
course the musses are going to
vote to suit themselves, which is
free trade, or the nearest to it that
they can get.
The thing that the people are
getting to understand is that u y
I. .1 . 7 .. J .... . ....... -.'i-

and thut it is only more or less
protective us it is high or low.
You hear tho Democrats clam
oring tor a taritl which is for rev
enue only, aud with tho ixnver in
their bunds, they have decided
that 42 per cent, say, is th ? gen
eral average of duty on lmsirte
that is necessary to raise Iho rev
enue for tho government.
Hut if the Republicans should
reduce it to 40 per cent, yon
would at once find that the Demo
crats would drop to 3"i per cent,
nnd so on down, the Democrats
declaring For free trade whenever
the Republicans reduced the tariff
to ft per cent.
I he word "protective simply
refers to the protection ol the great
Northern capitalists nnd manu
facturers, and "tree trade" menus
that a man shall be free to go
into tho marts and markets ot the
World, and spend his money
where ho can get the most and
best for it, which, it seems to me,
ought to be just as truly one of
the inalienable rights ot a trco
citizens as that of life, liberty, the
wssessinii of property or the pur
suit of happiness.
Kx-CIovcrnor John I. St. John,
who will almost certainly bo the
next Prohibition enndidate (or the
Presidency, is liov tcnking
throughout (he United State and
advocates Irco trade.

the only laudable principle iu
