Frankfort Ky Oct 4 1000
EDITOU BEE Earlington Ky
We are still here doing nothing
and not much nearer a solution
of the question under considera
tion viz the election law than
when we arrived here on the 28th
of last month pursuant top call
of Goy Beckham who wants to
be honestly elected once but the
voters of the grand old commOn
woath have decided that they
are to have a say so in this mat
ter and they are determined to
elect that prince of gentlemen
and leader of loaders the Hon
Jno Yerkes and to see that ho
shall not be counted out Goebel
law or no Goebel law
The Democrats of the house
passed a law without a name
which makes Sam Shacldeford
the umpire in the state and
jmakes the boards in the counties
stand two to one in every county
and voted down a proposition I
to alternate the sheriffs in the
precincts the bill as passed is
very little if any better than the
Goebel law and was resisted by
the Republicans of the house
The senate has passed a bill
which is a great improvement
over the present law but I do
not think the house will concur
ands unless therejsfa tgreat
fiange we will adjourix1 without
accomniiliing any ngf

Kentucky Hon john AY

speaking to begin Main street
was thronged with people who
I
wanted to hear the crimes
against the ballot box exposed
and when the hour arrived there
was such a rush for the door ns i
is seldom seen Some J500 were i
turnedg
away because there was room for
no more He Was introduced by
a Democrat Judge Bullitt who
ina forceful manner laid bare
htheir charges and said he had
come to a parting of the ways
and would not condpno fraud I
but would support Yerkes
When Mr Yerkes came for
ward the applause was deafen
ing and lasted for several min
utes He dealt sledge hammer
blows for one hour and thirty
minutes and at the close received
a great ovation Altogether it
was a great day for the friend
of civil liberty and the rights of
the people Trusting you may

jT t
MADE A STRONG AND EARNEST TALK
I
As announced wouldbe Hon
E G Sobree spoke to the people
of Earlington Monday night at
the Opera House which was
filled with earnest advocates of
honest elections and civil liberty
very few Goebel Democrats be =
ing present for the reason that
their leaders endeavor to keep
all of them from hearing any
thing except the threadbare ana
absurd argument of the assas
sination and death of William
Goebel which constitutes the
burden of the speeches of those
who advocate the election of Mr
Beckham and the perpetuation
of Goebelism
GoebelismThe
The audience was well pleased
with the strong and argumenta
tive speech of Col Sebree who
spoke as a student of the condi
tions of men and the affairs of
State rather than as a politician
Col Sebree is a popular man
here as throughout the Second
congressional district and the
state and his hearers were not
disappointed at seeing and hear
ing him as he was Monday night
A number of Rough Rider
hats the first to strike Earling
ton were conspicuous in the
m9et1 1tt Ji
among tliosa true or thliia
wJudge
tary of the Republican county
committees was made president I
of the club and Paul M Moore
secretary After the close of
the speech this organization was
effected and the secretary read a
list of members he had enrolled
dduring the day previous to the
speaking The place of honor at
the head of this list was given
Uncle Oscar Stevens the oldest
Republican in point of years and
term of residence in Earlington
He had said ho could not be pres
ent but that his heart was with
the workers for Civil Liberty
The audience was given opportu
nity to join and they joined to
the aggregate number of 107 that
evening Since then a number
of new members have enrolled
and the list is growing rapidly
Enrlington is equipped with
three clubs which have for their
purpose an honest election and a
fair count now and hereafter
dand taking the air of enthusiasm
that is abroad for civil liberty
there may be other clubs Before
the campaign ends
yThe colored voters have organ
ized a McKinley club in Lake
precinct and a Roosevelt Club in
Northeast precinct Both have
largo membership and are tin
good working order

The undersigned desires to ex
prose her warmest gratitude to
those who have by word or otx
pressed the sympathy they have
Zd
