The Democratic Platform Favors
the Law Reducing the
Republicans Opppso the Anti-Trust Hill and
Urailley Vetoed the Fellow
Extract From Speech of Senator Gobl at May
fleld. "The Democratic platform favora,
and the Republican platform opposes,
the enactment of a law reducing tho
prices of schoolbooks used in the com
mon schools of the state. At the lapt
session there was passed by the house
of representatives u bill upon this sub
ject, ottered by Mr. Chinn of Mercer
county. This bill llxed a maximum of
prices for schoolbooks, on an average,
one-third less than the proces now
fixed by the school book ttust, but
that maximum was still 10 per cent
above the averuge maximum price
fixed by a similar law that has been
in successful operntion in Indiana tor
10 years. In the house of representa
tives and in the senate every Repub
lican vote was cast against this bill.
"What good reason can there be
why the same school books, manufac
tured and sold by the same corpora
tion, should In Kentucky cost 43 per
cent, or nearly one-half, more than
they cost In the adjoining state of In
diana? Such is the fact, solely beraue
the law permits it, and because the
represetatives of the Republican par
ty In the last genpral assembly did the
bidding' of the lobbyists of thti book
trust. Jf there be anything that ought
to'be made as nearly free as air as the
'law can make it. it is the .opportunity
of every child in the commonwealth
to get an education.'
"The Democracy of Kentucky af
firms that it is as true now as it was
when Jefferson wrote it into the Dec
laration of Independence, that 'govern
ments derive their Just powers from
the consent of the governed," and that
this applies to all peoples everywhere.
They affirm that this nation should
no more have a British colonial policy
than it should have a British financial
policy; that what would have been
'criminal aggression' in Cuba is 'crim
nal aggression in the Philippines, and
therefore they denounce the policy of
the present national administration in
these islands. The only redeeming
features of the Republican policy of
imperialism are the bravery and hero
ism of the American soldiers. Ap
The Republican party in this cam
paign appeals to the people for sup
port upon the record of the present
ReDublican state administration. The
present state administration came into
power upon the claim that its Demo
cratic predecessors had unnecessarily
increased the public, debt, raised the
rate of taxation and misapplied the pub
lic funds. 'Let us look at the books,'
said they in the campaign of 1895. 'and
we will show these things.' For nearly
four years Kentucky has had Repub
lican rule; the Republicans have had
the books, but there has not been, nor
is there now, even a pretense that dur
ing Democratic administrations a sin
gle cent was misappropriated. The
present Republican administration,
when appealing to the people for sup
port in 1895, promised, it elected, to
reduce the expenses of government. It
has increased them. It promised to
reduce the rate of taxation, but ha?
increased it. It promised to reduce
the public debt, but has Increased it.
It promised to raise the per capita an
. nual allowance for school children, but
has decreased it. Never in the history
of the commonwealth were there such
scandals in the management of the
prisons and insane asylums as under
Republican management The Repub
lican platform complains that by legis
lation enacted at the last session of
the general assembly it was deprived
of the control of the penitentiaries.
The Democratic wardens and other of
ficials in charge of the penitentiaries
when the Republican administration
came into power had been, appointed
for terms fixed by law. The Repub
lican administration turned these
Democrats out long before the expira
tion of their terms. The Republican
management increased the cost of tho
penitentiaries. The Democratic man
agement under the new law has not
only decreased the cost of maintaining
and operating the penitentiaries, but
has made them self-sustaining.
"By the vote of the entire Republic
an membership of both houses of the
general assembly at its last session
there was prevented the passage of a
law reducing to a just charge the
prices of school book3 now fixed by the
book trust, and by a like vote of, the
Republicans of the general assembly
there was prevented the enactment of
a proper and effective anti-trust law.
"Nearly every bill passed by the gen
eral assembly that would have given
people relief from oppressive burdens
was vetoed by the Republican govern
orchief among which was the Mc-'
Cord bill to prevent extortion and dis
crimination in freight rates by rail
road corporations, and both upon its
original passage and upon the ques
tion of passing it over the veto every
Republican vote was cast against
this bill. This bill was entirely in the
interest of the masses of the people of
"The governor vetoed the 'fellow
servants bill.' which would have given
the same right of compensation for In
Jury to, or death of, railway employes
by reason of negligence that the law
gives to strangers. This bill. If ap
" proved, would have given a large class
, of employes who dally hazard their
lives, for an Inconsiderable compensa
tion, in a public service, the same rlsht
that the lawglves the traveler upon
the highway. The gross discrimina
tion that this bill would have elimin
ated from our law was removed from
the law of England 20 years ago by a
bill offered by Mr. Gladstone.
