out a large lot of circulars to Repub

them to gvt subscribers for certain

Federal Authority Will Not Be
Exercised in Kentucky,
MeKinley Decides There Is No Emergency
WASHINGTON, D. C, February i. The President
and Cabinet have given very thorough consideration to ' the
Kentucky situation. A decision as to the course of the ad
ministration has been reached, and it will stand unless there
shall be some unlooked-for and radical change in conditions.
"Until circumstances shall make it absolutely necessary,
the President will not interfere and exercise federal authority."
This is the conclusion of the conference to-day, as stated
by a member of the administration. How long it can be
maintained will depend upon developments. But it is the
opinion of the President that the immediate situation noes not
call for any action on the part of the general government.
At the consultation by the President and his advisers, it
wasoigreect that article.!., section 4, of the constitution, must
be tfae guide. That provision is as follows:
"Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every
state in the Union a republican form of government, and shall
protect each of them against
the Legislature or the executive when the Legislature can
not be convened) against domestic violence."
The language of section 5297, of the Revised Statutes,
drawn to furnish a law for the use of federal troops in states,
follows very closely the form of the constitution as quoted.
It authorizes the President to
insurrection in any state against
application of the Legislature
tive thereof, when the Legislature can not be convened."

Leo Doyle-In Memorltm.
How uncertain and inscrutable are
thy visitations, O Death! How sud
denly does thy withering bolt descend,
O thou Destroyer! Unseen, unsus
pected, unexpected, thou makest ready
thy harvest, and then silently and
remorselessly gatherest thy grain, O
thou Grim Reaper! Now our friend
Leo Doyle has fallen beneath thy
inexorable scythe. . Too soon, alas,
too soon, it seems to us, has he been
carried off into the spirit realms. '
. It seems so short a span of time
now thirty years since first we grasp
ed his honest hand: since first we
heard his genial voice and sympa
thetic laugh; since first we listen
ed to ' his prudent counsel: since
first on starlight eveaing3 wc walked
with him and gazed on that great and
silent rivor flowing onward under the
constellated sky to the all-embracing
sea, flowing onward so like our little
life, to all-embracing death. -
Leo Doyle, whose death we lament
was th son of Miles Doyle and Sarah
Morrison, a sister of Hon. T. J. O.
Morrison, so long and so favorably
known as the representative of tne
New Madrid District in the State
Senate. His father was an Irishman
by birth, of the noblest type, a man
of sterling virtue and integrity. In
his youth ha had followed the Austins
from Missouri to Texas, but after
wards returned and married Mis
Morrison, a member of one of the
earliest American families, settling in
the Spanish Dominions, west of the
Mississippi. His father, with his
family, moved to a farm a little north
of Cape Girardeau (which farm his
son owned until his death) and there
Leo Doyle was born, June 14, 1832.
Here he spent his youth, securing
such an education as his father s
limited means would permit Between
1850 and I860 he and his brother
Theodore, long since dead, maintain
ed a wood yard on the river to sup
ply the boats plying the river and
then altogether dependent on wood
During the war he removed to Cape
Girardeau and with his brother-in-
law Patrick Garathy entered into the
mercantile business, and in this bus
iness he has been engaged ever since,
surviving both his brother-in-law and
brother. He took a deep interest in
everything tending to promote the
welfare of our city. For many years
he acted as secretary of the old
Bloomfield Gravel Road, and con
tributed his stock to make that road
the free public road we now. have.
For over thirty years, and until his
death, he was treasurer of the Scott
County Macadamized Road. At the
time of his death he was a director in
Houck's Missouri and-Arkansas Rail
road, now constructing its line to
this city. He was also a director and
assisted in organizing the Pcrryville
Railroad Company. In 1880 when a
company was organized to build a
railroad from Cape Girardeau to a
connection with the Iron Mountain
Railroad, Leo Doyle was one of the
warmest friends of the enterprise, and
one of the few citizens of Cape Gir
ardeau who invested actual cash in
the bonds of the road. He became
trustee for the bond holders, and as
such trustee, when the attempt was
made by the Gould interest to seize
the road, manifested his zeal for the
interest of the city and devotion to
the parties owning the property, by
instituting independent legal proceed
ings, and after a protracted and al
most unexampled litigation, finally
triumphantly emerged from the con
test. At one time in that litigation
he was cited to appear before the
Supreme Court to show cause why he
should not be punished for contempt,
and although it seemed that his course
would result in a heavy fine and im
prisonment, his courage did not fail
and he did not abandon the interests
ha represented. For a number of
years he was a member of the City
Council, and while in that capacity
rendered invaluable service to our
people. It should always be remem
bered, that in 1876 he introduced the
ordinance for settling and compromis
ing the city railroad debt, and thai
through his efforts and the effort of
the then Mayor, Hon. Leon J. Albert,
(to his credit be it said ) the city was
rescued from the bankruptcy into
which it had been plunged by a wild
and reckless administration. ' The
new growth of our town, the restora
tion of value to city property, the new
energy manifested by all of our peo
ple and new faith in our future, dates
from the successful settlement of that
railroad debt, provided for and for
mulated by that ordinance But he
was a modest and unassuming man.
He did not parade his official ' good
work. He did not tell everybody
about his great public spirit ' When
ever be could he always assisted in
promoting the general welfare. .He
had a kind and generous disposition,
a loving and affectionate heart He
was liberal in his dealings v.ith others
and prudent in his expenditures, with
out being parsimonious. He was
honest and truthful, without guile and
deceit He was loyal to his friends.
He was charitable, tbe father of the
orphan and disinterested advisor of -the
widow. He was without ostenta
tion, plain and simple in speech,
plain and simple in dress, unusually
intelligent in all things that came
within tbe sphere of his observation
and loved reading. And he was kind .
to the brute creation and fond of dogs.
He was methodical In all of his busi
ness. For years before his death he
punctually kept a daily weather record,
as well as a record of the principal
events occurring ia the community
a Veritable chronicle of the town.
He was married twice, and his second
wife surviving him will deeply mourn
his death. He left no children. .
Now after a life -well spent, a life of
honor, virtue, inteerhj and good
work, he has fallen beneath the sickle.
like the ript-ned grain at harvest time,
and been gathered with his fathers.
