he was forceful and his pen seemed
to dip deep in the everlasting blue of
natures dome and drew its inspir
ation from the throbbing heart of
manSVhile
While as an orator the silver
melody of his voice had the power
ttohush the silence of angry throngs
ln lmen were made to feel the in
0 fluence of his magnetic power He
possessed the power to clothe his
thoughts in the choicest language
and yet make the remaining so clear
l as to be understood beven the un
learned
He possessed a personality which
jivwas many sided to the different peo

who truste their property or their
1 Jives in his hands he was the law
f ver to those who sat and listened to
his eloquence he was the orator to
jf those who followed his views as ex
pressed by tongue or pen he was the
x statesman to those who eagerly
scanned the editorial columns of his
i paper and read his thoughts as they

C inridge wasborn in Baltimore Id I
August 28 1837 He was educated
jfoat Jefferson College Pennsylvania
and afterwards completed his course

afterward attended Law College in
< Louisville where he graduated in
rlS57 and located and began the
practice of His profession in Lexing

ptonWhen
I When the Civil War broke out in
i860 he entered the Confederate
army and joined Gen John H Mor
ijgans > command at Georgetown He
r seta the rank of colonel com
nia ding the Ninth cavalry the last
two years of the war
gf After the war he returned to Lex
ig ton nnd took up the practice of
foti prpfession and at the
me time wns editor of the Observer

of law until 18S4 when he was
ekcted to Congress and held that po
sition for ten years
In 1894 he was defeated by Maj
W C O vans for reelection after
which he took upon himself the
duties of edtcrial writer of the
Morning Herald which hmo ition he
held until the time o his death
IT SHKNS that the secret ballot sys
tem has proven to be an excellent
one for the perpetration of fraud
and affords opportunity for the jug
gling of returns to such an extent
that the honest people throughout
the State are becoming more and
more disgusted with politic
It seems that we have Beached a
point where n man who by chance
circumstances happened to be on
the opposing side from that of the
manipulators of the political affairs I
he is sure to go down in defeat no I
matter what his standing in his com
munity may be or how insignificant
his opponent may be
This is a deplorable state of affairs
and should not exist anywhere and
will sooner or later bring the party
that tolerates it to an ignominious
defeat
We trust that such a state of af
fairs does not exist in Knox county
andwe sincerely trust that it never
will
willThese
These schemes are the outcrop
pings of Goebelism pure and simple
and surely no decent Republican
would desire to have his conduct or
character compared to that con
tcmpiblc conduct known from one end
j ofour State to the other and which
I bears the name of its originator in
hip indecent methods in securing de
sired results from the party when
onla minority of the delegation
representing the great mass of the
people favored him
Let us urge upon all Republicans
to deal honestly apd fairly in all
their contests and not give occasion
for criticism or complaint
THANKSGIVING
The harvest has been gathered into
the garner and the winters store
has been laid up and the storehouse
is well filled with provisions
The President at the head of our
Nation as well as the Governors of
the respective States have followed
the established custom and issued
their annual Thanksgiving procla
tnationo
It is well for us after the close of a
fruitful harvest to offer unto God
thanks for his mercies and his bless
ings and to this end the last Thurs
day in November has for years been
set apart for the occasion > of thanks
giving and prayer and the pople
are urged to cease from their labors
and assemble jn their respective
places of worship and there offer I
their thanks for the blessings of the
year
yearIt
It is to be hoped that the American
people will ever remember to cel
ebrate this day and keep it as in the
pastas a day of worshipI
inI
SOME of the defeated candidates in
the recent county primary seem to
feel a little sore over the result but
we hope they willsoon forget their
troubles and line upor the nomi
nees It was impossible for every
one to win and someone had to go
down in defeat and we pre glad to
note that those who were defeated
by the narrowest margin were the
first to announce their intention to
support the nominees This shows
the true Republican spirit and we
trust it will be followed bv all oth
ers
WHY WE SHOULD GIVE THANKS
