REFUSAL BY TAYLOR.
Kentucky's Governor Will Not
Sign Peace Agreement.
A Compromise Proposition Can Come Only
FRANKFORT, KY., February 8. There is conster
nation in the Democratic camp. Gov. Taylor is to-night in
the saddle, and the opposition is on the run. All compromise
agreements are off, except what may come direct from the
Governor himself, drawn up to suit himself, and the chances
are that the Democrats will be willing and and anxious to
sign anything Gov. Taylor submits. The election contest
cases are now as good as before the United States Court of
Appeals, and there it is absolutely certain that justice, law and
the tfacts will be impartially considered.
'Gov. Taylor will not surrender any of his rights to the
Democrats," was what one of his legal advisers said to the
Globe-Democrat correspondent this 'evening. "That was
the decision he came to to-day, and all consideration of the
iLeuisville agreement is now at an end. He will submit to
none of its terms. Not only that, but he has abandoned any
