A dispatch from Washington aaya
there is small clm'ce for those who held
office under former administrations.
Cleveland decided not to re-appoint any
of those who had held office under pre
vious administrations and, that seems to
be McKinley's idea.
The Hon. "Tony" Carroll, whom the
Democrats of Louisville sent to the Leg
islature, has been cavorting about at
Frankfort as leader of the forces of one of
the Republican aspirants for Senatorial
honors. If he has gone over to the Re
publican party he ought to resign, bo a
Democrat could be chosen in his stead.
Hon. A. J. Carroll is doing all in his
power to secure the election to the United
states Senate of a sound money man
incidentally his father-in-law. Judge
Holt. Mr. Carroll is in active charge of
the Holt forces, and is giving Dr. Hunter
considerable to think about. Louisville
Well, it seems the wily Doctor has
given son-in-law Tony "considerable to
think about." Carroll has simply dem
onstrated that he's "small pertaters"
along side of Hunter.

HUNTER FIRST, BRADLEY NOWHERE.
The " Gum Shoe" Statesman Nominated Sat
urday For Senator by tho Republi
can Caucus Only One Hal
Governor Bradley has beon getting
some pretty hard knocks lately, but tho
hardost and ono that has no doubt made
him wince and squirm was on last Satur
day when tho Republican caucus nomi
nated his arch enemy, the wiloy Dr. Hun
ter, for Senator.
Hunter won on the first ballot, receiv
ing thirty-eight votes, the combined op
position being able to muster a total of
Tho result was a great victory for tho
Huntorites, as Governor Bradley and his
friends have been schomingnight and day
to encompass the defeat of tho "gum
Five of the Republican members of the
Legislature did not take part in the cau
cus and it is intimated strongly that at
least two of them may refuse to support
Hunter. It takes the full Republican
strength to elect on a strict party vote.
On tho other hand, howevor, it is said
three Democratic members have pledged
themselves to vote for Hunter. It re
mains to be seen whether ho can muster
enough votes to give him the coveted
honor and complete his victory over
Senator Clark, ono of those not present
at tho caucus, is one of Governor Brad
ley's closest political adherents, and sev
eral months ago signed a statement that
he would not support Dr. Hunter if nom
inated. Senator -Rummans was also absent
from tho caucus. In an interview Satur
day night he declined to state whether
he is going to support tho nominee. He
said: "I do not yet know what I shall
do. I am making a thorough investiga
tion of affairs, and do not intend to say
what course I shall pursue until I am sat
isfied as to tho charges made against mo."
Senator Rummans had a conference
with the Governor Saturday morning.
The Governor met him on tho State
House steps and they went to tho Exe
cutive office. Naturally his silence is
taken as ominous by some of Dr. Hun
ter's friends. In an interview Friday at
Covington Rummans said: "I holh that
St. John Boyle is the caucus nominee and
cannot see how any ono can think of
thrusting him aside for Hunter, who has
been side-tracked and should stay there.
Hunter failed to carry when he was the
nominee and that, of itself, should satisfy
him and his friends that he is not
worthy. I voted for him then, but after
his duplicity with the Populists was
shown up I felt like kicking myself that
I over did. A man who has publicly
been exposed as Hunter has, is not
worthy of any support and he should be
glad to stay on a very secluded side-track.
I don't believe he has any chance what
ever of being elected Senator." After
expressing such sentiments ns these, it
remains to be seen whether Senator
Rummans can be induced to fall into
lino and vote for "a man who has been
publicly exposed as Hunter has."
Lieutenant Governor Worthington has
ruled that no joint session can bo held
for balloting until March 23rd, but the
Hunterites are trying to force him to
change his decision.

"The SroRTiNG Craze' which will be

craze for sports in a country town where
there is two rival factions, and an election
to decide whether or not every thing
shall go. Tho minister is pitted against
the country store keeper, or sport as he
terms himself, and the latter by making
hia opponent drunk gets him to cast the
deciding vote. The sport iB elected Sher

THE C.-J.'S CONVICTIONS.
Taper That Has Recti on All Sides
All Qnostions-"AH Things
I Louisville Post.
In 1892, the editor of tho Courier-Journal
said Cleveland's views on silver made
him an impossible candidate, and then
when Cleveland was nominated, forced
on the convention an extreme free trade
plank to make certain his defeat.
Yet only a few weeks ago this political
turncoat declared a willingness to ac
cept the highest of high tariffs rather
than desert his new allies the iRepub
cans in their struggle to do nothing
with the currency.
Convictions, indeed; this journalistic
comedian has never beeu encumbered
with such baggage. He has beon all
things by turns, and nothing long; a
p'.cture6que but somewhat tiresome fig
ure ; the Lois Fuller of the variety stage;
the moment ho stops turning, the lights
fade, the colors pass into gloom and ho
is a mere bundlo of nothing, a heap of
rubbish in the path of party progress.
To-day tho editor of the Courier-Journal
says it will support no body of men
who even so much as equivocates as to
tho integrity of the nation or of public
Yet this same editor in one day assert
ed that Adlai Stevenson's greenback rec
ord made him an unfit candidate for
Chairman of a national convention ; on
tho next this inflexible defender of the
nation's credit got up a combination to
make this impossible Stovouson a can
didate for Vice President, and boasted
afterward hogot nil ho wont for to Chi
cago. In tho light of all theso recent events
the editor of tho Courier-Journal should
sit down and read oyer his editorials of
to-day and try to imagine tho frame of
mind in which thoy are read" by those
who read them at all.
