Col. Mose Wetmork, tho great trust
bmter, is organizing a now tobacco com
pany with a capital of a million and a
quarter. Is Col. Mose propating to hit
tno trusts again by unloading on them ?
Judging by the 0. J.'a talk, it is in sym
pathy with the grasping tobacco trust
and opposed to any movement to destroy
the power of this combine that is robbing
the growers of thousands of dollars every
year. But this is not surprising, as the
Courier-Journal crowd have done and are
still doing what they can to place this
country in the grasp of the biggest and
moat extortionate of all trusts.
"A guilty conscience needs no ac
cuser." Before tho State Election Com
missioners convened last week to can
vass the returns Republicans were free
in the denunciations of the board, and in
expressing tho belief that the certifi
cates of election would be granted to tho
Democratic nominees. In this the Re
publicans wero simply taking tho in
famous record of their own party as the
Etandard by which to measure the Dem
ocrats. Judging by that record of the
Republican party, who will doubt, had
circumstances been just the reverse of
what they were at Frankfort last week,
with the board composed of Republi
cans, that they would have given their
party nominees the certificates of elec
tion, and laughed over their work.
TIMELY ADVICE TO COLORED
Saturday's issue of tho Public Ledger
contained an editorial full of timely and
most excellent advice to colored people.
By request the Bulletin reproduces it:
We regret to notice a disposition among
the lees intelligent of the colored people
to attribute the recent expression of pub
lic sentiment in regard to the crime of
Richard Coleman to the existence of a
deep seated feeling of hostility to the col
ored race. There is no community of
whites iu Christendom which is as little
open to such a charge as the community
in which we live. Even in the. old slavery
days there were no more kindly and in
dulgent masters than the fathers and
grandfathers of the men who meted out
to Richard Coleman Itho penalty de
manded by outraged ju'Btice for the com
mission of a multiple crime ; and the mis
erable wretch who suffered this penalty
boro witness, even while reeking with
the blood of his benefactress, to the kind
ness which from childhood he had re
ceived at her hande. Is Dick Coleman
to be deliberately selected by the colored
people of Mason County as a representa
tive type of their race? Does not the
very euggeBtion dishonor the memory of
the honorable old siaveB who rest beside
their masters in the burial-grounds of
this county ? Ought not the true men of
the colored race to have been the first (as
some, indeed, have been) to step forward
and denounce the perpetrator of his hor
rible crime, or "plexus of crimes," as a
monster too hideous and repulsive to be
classified with any branch of the human
Not many years have elapsed since threo
incarnate devils, in a neighboring county,
outraged and murdered three little girls,
and fired the house to consume their
bodies and conceal the crime. What
was the result? Many lives were lost
and thousands of dollars were expended
to save these wretches from tho same
swift ppnaltv which was measured out to
Richard Coleman on Wednesday last.
All the military forces of the Common
wealth wero invoked to rescue from the
swift hand of justice these three devils,
monsters of lechery and murder who
were masquerading in a civilized com
munity in white Bkins and under Christian
names. Did tho sympathies of the white
race go out towards theea wretches? Has
their memory been consecrated in the
traditions of that race? Have their evil
naraea been inscribed in the Caucasian
calendar of martyrs and eainta?
But this is not all. There -was born
many years ago of a slave mother upon a
Southern plantation a child who, in spite
of all that adverse fortune could do to
thwart his inborn inclinations for good.
has become not only the head and front
of the humble race from which ho Bprnng,
but a conspicuous and honorable ex
ample to the poor and humble of every
race. And yet tho early conditions of
Lis career (in many respects the same)
wero far less favotablo than those of tho
villainous creaturo who perished in tho
gravel pitjon Wednesday last. Now these
are plain, i ndiaputablo' facts. If there
are men of wisdom in tho colored race of
Mason County let them Bpoak out boldly
to thoir own people, in their pulpits, at
their flre8ides,in tho schoolrooms, among
tho laborers in tho fields and tho loafers
in tho streets.. Is'it Booker Washington
or is-it Dick Coloman that is to be the
idoal of your race?
Tho colored Bishop of New Jersey is
not well informed nor wise. Tho civil
ization of this rounty will bear compari
son with that of Now Jersey at least. If
Bishop Wallers were as well instructed
as a Biehop should he he would not
speak so unwisely to on ignorant, help
less, sensitive and unreflecting race. It
is evident that the civilization of New
Jersey has done but little for him. Does
civilization, from tho New Jersey point
of view, rest upon a basis of education ?
A Harvard Professor, who is universally
known as a scholar and man of scienco,
says in his history of Kentucky that
Mason County is "tho best Bcnooled
county in the State." Ex-Gov. Brown,
a scholarly politician and a political
scholar in addressing a public meeting
in this place lnat autumn, suid in simple
recognition of well-known facta, that the
county of Mason has always been as
famous for the culture of its people as
for the fertility of its soil. If tho good
Bishop of New Jersey should ever meet
the ubiquitous Mason County man ho
will cheerfully acknowledgo tho force
aud justice of these remarks.
As to mob law. Well, it is bad enough.
Its only -justification in that there are
many things that aro wore. Lord Cole
ridge, tliH eminent Chief Justice of the
British Empire, has remarked that among
the Anglo-Saxon people the so-called
lynch law will always bo invoked to cor
rect tho inevitable defects of ordinary
legal administration. It is not merely
the wild justice of a mob: it is the rude
equity of tho criminal law. Its oporation
is ewift, silent, deadly and convincing. It
clears the moral atmosphere. It puts all
shapes of evil to fight. The virtues of
civilization spring up in its footsteps.
Peace prevails; public order is Becure,
and even at midnight helpless innocence
may walk in safety upon the loneliest
To the casuist and the caviller; to all
who aro still unconvinced ; who still in
sist that justice shall always, and in all
circumstances, and according to degraded
and defectivo methods, be distributed in
quantities to suit purchasers, at the old
familiar stands, wo have but one re
ply to make. It is that of a bold and
able Republican newspaper of Cincin
nati in response to tho snivelling sympa
thizers with the miserable victim of "Ma
son County mob law." The answer is
brief, but ft is conclusive: "And on tho
other hand" says the daring Republican
editor "Suppose it had been your wife 1"
THE STATE ELECTION.
Studyidg the opinion of the Stato Elec
tion Commissioners, it is a most peculiar
situation that confronts the people of Ken
tucky. As a result of the opinion of the
majority of the Board, General Taylor
will to-day be inaugurated Governor, and
his associates on the Republican ticket
have been awarded certificates of elec
tion. And yet Judge Pryor and Captain
Ellis, who voted to give the certificates
of election to the Republicans, in effect
hold that, had they the power of a con
test board, tho certificates would havo
bean given to Mr. Goebel and his associ
ates on tho Democratic ticket. This is
virtually saying the Democrats were
legally elected, but yet the Republicans
are to be inducted into office and the
Democratic nominees will be forced to
submit, or resort to another contest to
obtain what, legally, they are entitled to.
Hon. 0. B. Poyntz, in liis minority re
port as a member of the State Board,
brings this point out. He says:
"I agree with rav fellow-members of
the State Election Board that the Demo
cratic candidates were legally elected at
the general State election held Novem
ber 7, 1899; and this fact is shown by tho
certificates made to this board by the
Beveral county election boards.
Mr. Poyntz then goes briefly over the
tie8ue ballot question, declaring that in
hia opinion their me should have ren
dered void the election in the counties of
Pike, Johnson, Knox and Magoffin. The
charges of military intimidation at the
polls in Louisville is then discussed, and
the opinion given that the election in
Jefferson County'should be declared void.
His opinion concludes as follows :
I am no lawyer, but I believe laws are
intended to bring about justice, and be
lieve that tno law does not require the
giving of certificates of election to candi
dates who are shown by the returns be
fore this board to have been defeated. I
am unwilling to certify to fraud and to
turn Kentucky over to tho bayonet, Gat-
ling gun and the fraudulent tissue bal
lots. I, therefore, respectfully decline to
join with my colleagues in granting cer
tificates to tho Republican candidates,
and believe certificates of election should
be issued to the Democratic candidates.
Millions Given Away.
It is certainly gratifying to the public
to know ot one concern in tho land who
are not afraid to be generous to the needy
and suflering. The proprietors of Dr.
King's New Discovery for consumption,
coughs and colds, havo given away over
ten million trial bottles of this great med
icine; and havo tho satisfaction of know
ing it has absolutely cured thousands of
hopeless cases. Asthma, bronchitis,
hoarseness and all diseases of the throat,
chest and lungs are surely cured by it.

Judge Riley, of Lexington, has de
cided that the toy pistols sold to boys for
Christmas amusement are deadly weap
ons and that the same penalty is at
tached to carrying them concealed as ia
prescribed for carrying a Colt's or Smith

dealers who sell these pistols are liable
to a fine of from $25 to $50, and impris
onment of from twenty to thirty days in

cinct in which John Young Brown got a

Harbeson appointed Hon. E. L. Worth-

islature to pass a bill empowering the
Circuit Judge to transfer all misdemeanor
casos hereafter to the Quarterly Court.
Mr. Worthington is to select two other
members of the bar to assist in .the work
of preparing a bill and to urge its passage.
It is certainly a wiso move, as much of
the time of tho Circuit Court is, under
the present system, taken up with the
trial of these potty cases. Mr. Worth
ington has selected Judge Wall and Mr.

"We find (from experience) that the most
successful way to buy our merchandise is to
have several of the best manufacturers in the
world to send us sample garments to be com
pared with other garments of same price.
Then we can see for ourselves which sends
us the best value for the money, and of course
the one who has the best gets our order.
Now you want to buy a Suit, or maybe an
Overcoat. Of course you want the best for
your money. You follow our plan, and
have several to send to your home their best
$10, $J2 or $15 Suit or Overcoat, or what
ever article you want, and then you can
carefully compare them side by side, and see
whose Clothing displays the best workman

carefully be looked Into. The merchant
