are making a mistake jn claiming
Ohio. The best policy, occasion
ally at least, is to tell the truth in
politics; and the truth is that Ohio
lias no more chance of going Demo

of going Republican next year.
Ix an interview with a Nashville
Sun reporter, Gov. Taylor is re
ported to have said: "I have not
stated that I would be a candidate
for the long term in the United
States Senate next time. Within
the next lew clays l shall make my
position plain, and will then give it

The Republicans of Kentucky
and their ally the Courier-Journa
are about to fall apart, though of
course at the proper time they wi
get together again. The Republi

side, while the corporation-ridden
Courier-Journal wants to rear back
the other way.
The fight between the Reform
Tarty and the Whiskey Ring for the
control of the approaching Novem
ber municipal election, has begun
with the opening of the registratio
books. No man can vote who does
not register. Registration, there
fore, is an all important matter, and
both sides are awake to their inter
ests. No lover of sobriety, good
morals and good order, should dis
franchise himself by a failure to
register; for next to the sin of vot
ing the whiskey ticket, comes the
shameful omission not to prepare
yourself to vote against it. "Eter
nal vigilance is the price of liberty,"
and we hope that no good citizen
will wait for a second reminder to
register. Make that your first duty
In the defeat of the proposition to
call a Constitutional Convention,
nothing more than the expected has
When the question was before the
Legislature, it was believed that tl e
people wanted a convention. They
had been talking a great deal about
it for a number of years; they had
taken the pains in very many of
their county conventions last year,
to instruct their representatives to
ote for the convention call, and
lien the Republicans, backed by
the corporations, were lobbying to
defeat the measure," a great howl
went up, and Democratic repre
sentatives who weie disposed not to
favor the measure were anathe
matized all over the state; until
finally the question was submitted.
Then, immediately, they began
to lose interest and become uncon-
erned. No sooner did they find
they could got it, than they did'nt
ant it. So long as it was denied
them, they were dead anxious for it;
ut when all objections and obstacles
were removed, they sat themselves
upinely down and didn't care a
cuss whether Tennessee had an old
or new or any constitution at all or
All of which goes to prove that the
people are contrary and contra
dictory creeturs, and that "vox
populi" is an unknown quantity.
What the otfice holders and fee
grabbers and corporations will
do before another opportunity is
given to head them, will be a plenty.
They will continue to pile up costs
and exact toll and wax insolent and
fat oil of the farmer and the artisan
who didn't go to the polls a pun
ishment he richly deserves.
The Legislature will doubtless be
appealed to now and then for relief,
but mostly in vain. Laws of real
relief will be defeated by the rings
or declared unconstitutional by the
courts... Little cigarette laws and
such like will be passed, only to be
ignored. Property values, under
the beneficent influence of tariff
protection and the single gold stand
aru, will continue to fall, while an
extravagant administration by the
office holders for the office holders
will increase the taxes, until soon
or late the fellow who didn't go to
the polls will wish he had.

never tire or tne statement mat
supply and demand" regulates the
price of farm products and other
commodities. It is the one proposi
tion upon which they have substan
tlal standing ground. Now if sup
ply and demand regulates the price
of everything that money will buy,
will it not likewise regulate the price
of money itself? If a large demand
or a small crop will enhance the
value of wheat, will not a large and
ever increasing demand for gold en
hance the value of all money, under
the single gold standard? And if
the value of money increases, does
it not follow as a natural, logical
inevitable consequence, that the
values of things that money can buy
will decrease? The Herald asks
every honest man to give himself
an honest answer to these questions,
and vote accordingly .
Our esteemed contemporary, the
Knoxville Sentinel, is very jealous
of its reputation, and declines to rest
under the charge that it has copied
from the Herald or any other pa
per, editorial matter "without com
ment or credit." And the Editor of
the Sentinel has taken the trouble,
so he writes us, to examine his files,
and no such article as the Maury
Democrat reproduced and credited
to the Sentinel, has appeared in that
paper. The explanation is entirely
satisfactory to the Herald, and
will be to the public, and relieves
the Sentinel and its Editor from any
guilt, either actual or implied. Tbe
Sentinel is out of it; but the fact re
mains, that the article first appeared
in the editorial columns of the Her
ald, and subsequently in the col
umns of the Democrat, with impro
per credit. Our local contemporary
can explain to the Sentinel, or not,
as they please.

The Herald forone year is worth
anybody's dollar, and as almost eve
rybody takes it anyhow, we are not
much given to offering premiums
Another reason we do not offer pre
miums is that the premims offered
us are usually some big "blanket"
paper from some far away city in
which our readers are not much in
terested. But when a real good thing comes
along, the Herald knows it and
takes it, as we always want to give
our readers and friends the benefit
of every good thing we can find.
In "Gov. Bob Taylor's Tales," you
will find a real good thing. It is one
of the most interesting books on the
market. It contains the three lec
tures which have made Gov. Taylor
famous as a platform orator "The
Fiddle and The Bow," "The Para
dise of Fools,"'1 and "Vinton and
Dreams." The lectures are given in
full, including all anecdotes and
songs, just as delivered by Gov.
Taylor throughout the country. The
book is neatly published and contains
fifty illustrations. It is sold at the
book-stores and by the butcher boys
on the trains and everywhere lse,
for 50 cents per copy. Invariably 50

Parkersburg, W. Va., Aug. 10.
About a year ago a man named W.
S. Klines shot and seriously injured
Beni. Hall, turnkey of the jail here,
because Hall had alienated the af
fections of Mrs. Kimes. Kimes con
fessed and asserted that he regretted
that lie did not kill his victim
Judge Jackson gave him a sentence
of twenty-four hours in jail and a
fine of $100 and costs, and then con
curred in a petition signed by many
citizens pleading for the remission of
the tine. Gov. Atkinson to-day gave
notk'e that he would remit the fine.
The Governor said : "This 's a re
markable case. The only regret in
the matter is that Kimes did not kill
Hall. He ought to have done so.
He tri d to do so. but his pistol missed
fire. He shot the scoundrel four
times, but unfortunately did not kill
him. Every man who has a soul in
his body will agree with me that he
ought to have killed him.
"Hall is at large. He ought to be
apprehended and imprisoned for life.
If the Prosecuting Attorney of Wood
county does his duty he will see that
the scoundrel is prosecuted and im
prisoned for breaking up Kimes'
home. I remit this fine and costs

Since Kimes' release he has been
employed at Wheeling, coining occa

wife endeavors to have the police
arrest him for failure to pay his

A Little Matter of "Fun" i'mnes Near
On Thursday evening of last week
Mr. Ernest Jones of Franklin, went
with his mother to Pope's Chapel
to tho night service, and from there
Mrs. Jones went to Mr. Tucker's
home to spend the night and her
son, Ernest, went to Mr. Will Beat's
at Carter's Creek, reaching there
about midnight. He concluded he
would have some fun out of Mr
Beal : so, going up on the back porch,
he made a big noise by stamping
around, and when hailed by Mr.
Beal refused to give his name.
Finally Mr. Beal told him if he
would show himself he would make
him tell his name and business,
whereupon the young man went to
the front porch, saying to Mr. Beal,
"you are by yourself to-night," and
at the same time making a motion
as if he were preparing to draw a
pistol and shoot. Upon this, Mr.
Beal fired a double-barreled shot
gun at the joker, the load passing
through his clothing across his
breast, but only a few shot taking
elfect. After Mr. Beal found out
who the person was, he was very
much excited until he saw that no
serious damage was done. This
kind of joking is very dangerous
business, as Mr. Jones is no doubt
aware of, and his narrow escape
should teach others as well as him
self a lesson.
