DON'T KNOW HIM.
Republican Papers Who Malign
Judge Cantrill Called
An A ii ( i Goebrl Paper Scores the Ledger
and Others of Its Class in Strong
l!'rls Gazette. J
The unreasonable and fiery attacks of
the Maysville Ledger and other Repub
lican papers upon Judge Cantrill don't
set very woll with the editors of anti-Goo-bel
Democratic papers who are thrown
in constant contact with Judge Cantrill,
and who know him well. la a recent is
sue tho Ledger says:
Cantrill Is a handsome, pompous, dignified,
shallow, machlnc-rldden politician. Knowing
v ry llttlo law, but possessing an abounding ego
tism and bliud partisanship, he was the exact
person to be Judge for the Campbclllz d prose
cution that have become the marvel of Ameri
can Jurisprudence. Ileyoud h's willingness to
serve Campbell and tho Beckham machine, there
has never been anything to commend him to
the consideration of what he calls his party.
Let the Gazette, which is' printed
within the jurisdiction of Judge Cantrill's
court, tell the editor of the Ledger, and
those who print other outlying (and ma
licious lying) papers that Judge Cantrill
is not pompous, is not shallow, is not
machine-ridden. He does not possess
an abounding egotism nor a blind parti
simhip. In truth, he waB the exact por
son to be Judge at the trials of the Goo
bel suspects. Ho is an honest, straight
forward, fearless maD, and he renders
his decisions without reference to the
standing of the contestants.
The Bourbon Circuit Court has been
presided over by Judges who have been
noted for their learning and their fair
ness. Judgo Cantrill followed Judge Jerre
Morton and Judge Thomas Scott. The
attorneys had some misgivings as to
Judge Cantrill's ability to fill the position
made vacant by these two lawyers of
note. In fact, at a banquet given to the
retiring and incoming JudgeB, Judge
Cantrill himself expressed a fear that a
comparison between the old anrj new
Judges would be unfavorable to him.
But at the very first court the members
of the bar Baw that JudgeB Scott and
Morton had a worthy successor, and from
that time to the present hour Judge Can
trill has had the esteem and confidence
of every lawyer who practices before his
The Gazette was an out-spoken anti
Goebel, anti-Trimble paper, but it can
not read the abuse heaped upon Judge
Cantrill by Republican organs without
f jeling that it is in bad company, and
wondering that if to train with the tra-
ducers of a Judge, whom it known to be
acting from a senBe of duty, is tho better
part of wisdom.
The dispatches from Frankfort an
nouncing that Judge Cantrill would bo a
candidate for United States Senator have
been denied, and tho statements made
that he would be a candidate to succeed
Judge Burnham on the Appellate bench.
The Gazette was for him for Senator; it
is uncompromisingly for him for the Ap
