kentucky'a NEW GOVKKNOK.
For tho first time in tho history of the
State a Republican was inaugurated
governor of Kontucky yesterday. Wil?
liam O. Bradley, the man who has suc?
ceeded in securing this honor, is a na?
tive of the State, born iu Lancaster
county March 10, 1847. At the age of
fourteen ho ran away from homo and
joined tho Union army, and whon he
was only 1? years old ho was llconsod
to practice law under a specUl act ot
tho legislature. lie roso rapidly In his
profession and soon stood in the front
rank of the bar of Kentucky.
In 1870 he was elected prosecuting at
tornoy, and in 1872 he was nominated
for Congress. In 1S30 ho was a delegato
at largo to the llopublloan national con?
vention, and was then chosen to repre?
sent Kentucky on, the national commit?
tee, which position ha now holds. In
I8S7 ho made tho race for governcr
aerainBt Gen. Simon Bolivar Bucknor,
tho ideal of Kentucky's Southern gov?
ernors. In 1888, while a delegate at
large to tho national Republican con?
vention, ho received the support of
overy Kentucky delogato as tho nomi?
nee for vice-Prasldont. He also headed
the Kontucky delegation at tho national
Republican convention at Minneapolis
Governor Bradloy is a llttlo below the
medium height, and is a man of re?
markable strength and energy. Ho is
of Scotch Irish extraction, and 1b
promlnontly mentioned in connection
with tho Republican nomination tor
Vice-Preaidont next year with a strong
oh?nco far sucoess.
THE walton l s.w.
There is no doubt that the Walton
election law Is an improvement on the
old law, and it is a step in tho direction
of reform. It has many excellent fea?
tures, and, in most respoota, it is to bo
commended. There is no doubt that it
is couvenient, and that elections under
it can bo fair. But It Is also very plain
that olectlons under it can ba dishonest
and that is where the shoa pinches the
So long as people know that tho spe?
cial constable foaturo o:?n ba used whore
occasion demands to chsat the opposi?
tion, just so lo?g will peopio believe
that tho law is used for auch a purpose,
and just qo loiig will tha stigma of dis?
honest election* attach to tho Demo?
There is but ono safe, moral guide for
political partios as thero is but one for
individuals. What ia the right thing to
do? Tha* is tho question. What is
henosfc ? What will elevate the people '.'
What will promoto honesty and moral?
ity ia tho State? That ia what law?
makers should consider. A body of men
svho will knowingly and design dly
make a law thit will encourage dis?
honesty and cloak rascality are not
worthy c.i their high c:!lir.g. Dishonesty
in making laws is no groat a crime an
?dishonesty in executing them. A i!!-?
honaot legislator ia as bad a lot as a
dishoneat j ud>;o.
Let tho members of tho legislature
consider thiB question a9 they would
consider any other quostlon of morula.
Then let them frame a law that shall

What of tho result? Never mind
about that. When a man has done the
honest thing, results takecaro of them?
The Times ooagratulatos the State on
its entrance into the ranks of honest
election advocates, which is but anothor
evidence that th^ morality and good
sense of tho Democratic party of Vir?
ginia has entered a formal protest
against everything that bears tho least
semblance to unf&irnoBS or trickery in
?the election laws of tho State.
Tue selection of St. Louis by tho Re

enough to tho center of the United

Senator Hill, tbo whilom opponent of
President Clevoland, and who latterly
was buried beneath an avalanche of
Republican ballots In his candldaoy for
the governorship of New York, Is now
mentioned in Washington as'the prob?
able Senatorial defender of the policy
of President Cleveland. Ho Is emin?
ently qualified for tho position, both as
to his record and from his power as a
debator, but it would be a sight calcu?
lated to make Mr. Cleveland weep with
gratitude, and to oall forth a Bmllefrom
all who remember the past antagonisms
and jealousies between the two men.
The resolutions of Impeachment
against Ambassador Bayard introduced
in the House ot Representatives yes?
terday by Mr. Barrett, a Republican
member from Massaohusotts, are, of
oourse, for polltloal effect only, and

publicans a chanoo to air their viows

JESTING WITH OKiTH.
Harry Ilayvrard Apparently Unmoved nt
Ills Approaching Doom.
Minneapolis, Minn., Deo. 10.?Boforo
dawn to-morrow morning Harry Hay?
ward will be banged at the jail in t?is
city for the murder of Catherine Ging.
Before dark to-night morbid crowds had
assembled in the vicinity of tho jail.
There was nothing to oee except the
grey walls and the opening of the heavy
doors to admit some official. Last night
the crowd numbered several hundred.
Hayward's swell dinner, the "Last
Suppar," as he profanely expressed it,
was sarved according to his desire
shortly af:er 10 o'clock and he partook
of It with apparent relish.
Rev. Father Timothy arrived shortly
after, not upon the summons of the con?
demned man, but In caso that at the
last momont a desire should bo ex?
pressed by tho hitherto unrepentant
man for a spiritual advieer.
During tho evening Ilayward held a
lengthy conversation with his attend?
ants, and laughad and jiked on tho
subject of bis approaching execution.
As Captain Sandberg was covering the
windows of tho jail looking Into the
alloy, llarry notic-:d him and shouted:
"That's right, block out tne gaping
crowd. Tnere will bo no visitors after
5 o'clock In the morning. People wish?
ing to see me will have to call at the
morgue, as I intend to change my quar?
ters," and he laughed as he said It.
To a newspaper man ho said: "I
would like to see tho account of how
this thing cam? out and about my ac?
tion", on tho scaffold." And again ho
laughed as if bo was going to a picnic
instead of to bis death. Tno trial of
Harry Hay ward was a notable cvont In
criminal jurisprudence, full of sensa?
tional Incidents and lasted nearly soven
weeks from " January 31, Governor
